The World Tag League has begun!

As we are less than two months from Wrestle Kingdom 14, the final tournament before the biggest show of the year for NJPW will look to create a challenge for the IWGP Tag Team Champion (Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa). The World Tag League pits 16 teams against one another in a round robin format where the winner of each match gets two points, the loser of each match gets zero points and a draw gives both team one point.

The World Tag League begins on November 16 and ends on December 8. A winner will be crowned once each team got to face the other 15 teams and the team who has the most points at the end wins the tournament.

Fightful will keep updated standings following each event:
