NJPW World Tag League Night 9 Results (12/11/22), Final Standings; Two Teams Advance To The Finals

The Arcrea Himeji in Hyogo, Japan was the site for NJPW World Tag League Night 9 of the Tournament on December 11.

With Aussie Open already qualifying for the finals set for December 14 going into Night 9, there were 3 teams still in contention for that second spot.

With the help of members of the House of Torture faction, Yujiro Takahashi and EVIL were able to defeat Tetsuya Natio and SANADA. This eliminated Naito and SANADA from the tournament.

The Naito/SANADA loss made it come down to two teams, either Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI or Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls were going to go on and face Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis in the tournament final.. Coincidently, those two teams faced off in the main event of the night 9.

After a hard fought match Hirooki Goto and YOSHI-HASHI emerged victorious and advanced to the finals.

With the Hirooki Goto/YOSHI-HASHI victory, they will be facing Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis on December 14th at Sendai Sunplaza Hall in the NJPW World Tag League Finals. The winner of that match will be crowned the 2022 World Tag League Winners and will head to Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4th to challenge the current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions FTR (Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler).
