NJPW ‘Super Jr. Tag League 2019’ (10.31.19) Results & Review

Published

on

Only one tournament match for the twelfth night of the 2019 Super Junior Tag League. The winless young lion teams are set to square off in their final tournament match. Let’s get started!

TJP & Clark Connors (1-6) def. Tiger Mask IV & Yuya Uemura (0-7) @ 15:06 via TJP Detonation Kick on Uemura – **1/2
Connors and Uemura brought their intensity from their brutal and tournament stealing match from the Young Lion Cup. We also got more Tiger here than any other night of the tournament, likely due to TJP’s Tiger Mask tattoo. This didn’t have the strong structure that the previous night’s match did but there were some highlights. Uemura’s intensity is great to watch and Tiger’s logical limb focus is something sorely missing in so much of this company that it makes him a treat to watch. While having a handful of highs, the match felt disjointed and kind of a flat finish to both team’s tournament. In Shibata’s interview before the Young Lion Cup he mentioned the NJPW crew play to the crowd too much. He needs to get into Connors ear because he’s beginning to show signs of falling into that trap as well.
