I made sure to set my alarm for this morning because two of my NJPW favorites are going at it in tonight’s main event. Yuji Nagata and Minoru Suzuki’s wrestling experience could fill the Grand Canyon. Their feud has been a highlight of NJPW lately because of their hard-hitting nature. So, which veteran will come out on top? Let’s find out, here are your Summer Struggle night 4 results.
1) YOSHI- HASHI, Toru Tano, Tomohiro Ishii & Hirooki Goto def Gabriel Kidd, Yota Tsuji, Ryusuke Taguchi & Satoshi Kojima
2) SANADA & Shingo Takagi def Tomoaki Honma & Shingo Takagi
3) DOUKI, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, El Desperado, Zack Saber Jr. & TAICHI def Yuya Uemura, Master Wato, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Kota Ibushi & Hiroshi Tanahashi
4) SHO & Kazuchika Okada vs Gedo & Yujiro Takahashi
Gedo was about to hit SHO with his brass Knuckles, but Yano made the save. Therefore this allowed SHO to tap out Gedo with an armbar. (10m 38s)
5) BUSHI & Tetsuya Naito ve EVIL & Taiji Ishimori
LIJ was cruising but Dick Togo pulled Naito from the ring. As a result, EVIL beat BUSHI with a sharpshooter. (9m 53s)
6) Yuji Nagata vs Minoru Suzuki 👍match of the night👍
I love people’s reactions to somebody getting hit hard in the face because it’s the same in every language. It’s a guttural “o-ho-ho-ho, he got all of that one”. This match certainly gave us lots of those reactions. Eventually, that brawling was too much for Nagata. Hence, Nagta fell victim to the Gotch piledriver. (20m 36s)
Summer Struggle night 4 results, but please join us tomorrow at 7 pm for the pilot episode of The Mane Line™. It’s a new NJPW podcast on ALL EVERYTHING ENTERTAINMENT.COM that you’d certainly enjoy if you are the type inclined to read this. I hope to see you there and am also looking forward to your questions! Next NJPW event is Thursday.
