NJPW ‘World Tag League 2017 Night 4’ 11.21.17 Results & Review



Hard camera only for the fourth night of the World Tag League. New Japan edited the show, only providing us with the tournament matches.

Killer Elite Squad def. David Finlay & Katsuya Kitamura @ 10:05
The power move boys did their power moves and it was very impressive. Finlay was in the match for at most ninety seconds. This was a showcase of K.E.S. dominating the giant young lion, Kitamura, who they make seem average in size. Kitamura delivered a huge brainbuster onto Archer for his lone highspot of the match. K.E.S. waste zero movement. Everything they do has purpose and it’s refreshing to watch after the last couple of nights. A real pro tag team doing good tag team stuff. This was solid, nothing special but easy to watch. K.E.S. scored the win via the Killer Bomb on Kitamura.

War Machine def. Makabe & Henare @ 9:44
Speaking of real pro tag teams, War Machine are incredible. Their selection of tag team moves are my personal favorites in all of wrestling. For guys their size they shouldn’t be doing what they do and that’s why it’s great every time you see them. Like the previous match, the established tag team isolated the young lion and took control of the match. This was one of the more fun matches of the tournament just by the sheer amount of moves War Machine loaded in here. Henare got a few decent hope spots but nothing too significant because you knew Fallout was coming. He’s hit with it and the two teams shake hands out of respect after the match. One of the better tag league matches to this point. War Machine work so hard night in and night out.

Yet again, I can’t recommend taking the time out to watch either match from this night but just like night two, this was easy to watch.
