The New Japan Cup continues to progress as another day of competition comes to a close. The first round of the tournament is almost over and the next round continues to become more clear.
Today the third day of the tournament took place. As a result, four more men moved on to the next round with some surprising results. This was an especially stacked show for tournament matches, with both SHO vs. Shingo Takagi and Kota Ibushi vs. Zack Sabre Jr. taking place. Both of those matches were on our list of first round matches you need to watch.
All four of the tournament matches were said to have been very good so if you have time this appears to be a show worth watching.
Here are the results from New Japan Cup Day Three:
- Minoru Suzuki, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, El Desperado & DOUKI def. Yuji Nagata, Yuya Uemura, Yota Tsuji & Gabriel Kidd
- SANADA def. Ryusuke Taguchi
- SHO def. Shingo Takagi
- Kota Ibushi def. Zack Sabre Jr.
- TAICHI def. Hiroshi Tanahashi
This now means that SANADA, SHO, Kota Ibushi, and TAICHI will join Tomohiro Ishii, Yuji Nagata, Kazuchika Okada, Taiji Ishimori, Hiromu Takahashi, Toru Yano, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, and Togi Makabe in the second round.
