11/23/22 Results from New Japan's Super Jr. Tag League From Tachikawa Area, Tokyo:

1 - Oskar Luebe and Kosei Fujita vs. Ryohei Oiwa and Yuto Nakashima

Fujita taps out Oiwa to a Boston Crab.

2 - Master Wato, Jado, Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Tomoaki Honma vs. Bad Luck Fale, Chase Owens, Gedo and Taiji Ishimori

Owens hit a high knee strike to Jado's face and follows with a C-Trigger.

Owens pins Jado.

3 - Hiromu Takahashi, Shingo Takagi and Tetsuya Naito vs. Lance Archer, El Desperado and Taichi

Wild match. Taichi and Takagi battle on the floor.    They fight sumo style and Taichi takes Takagi down.   Taichi jumps in the ring and Takagi is counted out.

Suzuki-Gun wins by count out.

The fight continues with after the match.  Taichi whips the referee across the ring with a sumo throw, then beats up the young lions at ringside.

Fun match.  Since Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki are back in Japan, Suzuki-Gun have been tearing things up again and as a group they seem more vicious and violent.    The Japanese announcers have mentioned AEW every time Archer wrestles, which is ironic since he barely wrestles in AEW.  Good publicity for Tony Khan, but he will not be getting Japanese audience to check out the AEW product.
