Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) (1-1) vs TJP & Clark Connors (0-2)

Today’s Akita tag match sees two-time and reigning Super Junior Tag League winners SHO and YOH take on TJP and Clark Connors. Roppongi 3K are riding high after a hard fought victory over the Birds Of Prey last Thursday, but might have a few difficulties tonight. After all, as competitive as RPG3K and B.O.P were in Korakuen, there was a sense of a gentleman’s agreement being put in place; Will Ospreay didn’t see his gut targeted despite a bout of food poisoning, and crucially, SHO’s back was left relatively unscathed after being brutalized in the league opener by El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru. 

No such agreement will be in place when SHO and YOH take on TJP and Clark Connors. If anything, TJP will likely be coaching Connors to separate SHO and work over the back; direction Connors will be all too willing to take as he hunts for his team’s first victory. The senpai kohai team already gave Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi a little more than they had bargained for in the league opener, and even though Connors’ LA Dojo Young Lion status puts his team in the underdgo category, you can expect an intense encounter from this one.
