Moments After The Beginning Of The November 22, 2020 World Tag League 2020 Match Between Sanada and Shingo Takagi And Bad Luck Fale And Chase Owens via New Japan Pro Wrestling

New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) continued the World Tag League 2020 series (WTL 2020) on November 22, 2020, at the Saku City General Gymnasium in Nagano, Japan. The COVID-19 (Coronavirus, 2019) reduced crowd of 838 made for a lively crowd in the well-lit venue.

The opening series match of the event saw Los Ingobernables de Japon (LIJ) members two-time IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champion and two-time World Tag League winner (WTL 2017 & WTL 2018) Sanada and “The Dragon” Shingo Takagi (2-1) [4 points] take on the Bullet Club tandem of “Rogue General” Bad Luck Fale and “Crown Jewel” Chase Owens (0-3) [0 points].

Sanada/Shingo came into the match with a victory over reigning IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions and Suzuki-Gun members Dangerous Tekkers (Zack Sabre Jr/Taichi), while Fale/Owens came in off a loss to Empire members Jeff Cobb and Great-O-Khan. Both matches took place on November 19, 2020.

Despite their slow start to WTL 2020, Fale/Owens were able to trouble Sanada/Shingo throughout the match. Fale looked to have shaken the ring rust off from his elongated COVID-19 delay. Owens, who has made a name for himself within NJPW as a good tag team wrestler, was able to direct the offensive attack against the LIJ team.

However, Sanada/Shingo were able to capture the victory at the 9 minutes and 45 seconds mark when Sanada used the O’Connor Bridge clutch technique to gain the fall on Owens. The victory moved Sanada/Shingo to (3-1) [6 points] in WTL 2020 action, while Fale/Owens dropped to (0-3) [0 points].

Sanada/Shingo went on to face the CHAOS team of two-thirds of the reigning NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions and CHAOS members Hirooki Goto and Yoshi-Hashi. While Fale/Owens went on to face former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions FinJuice (Juice Robinson/David Finlay); both matches took place on November 24th.
