The full results from the final day of World Tag League.

Today, New Japan Pro Wrestling had the final day of World Tag League before they are officially on the road to Wrestle Kingdom 13 on January 4th. There were a plethora of matches on today's card and the final three bouts had championship and Wrestle Kingdom 13 implications. It was Will Ospreay who earned himself the #1 contender slot to challenge for the NEVER Openweight Title that Kota Ibushi won in the match after Ospreay's by defeating Hirooki Goto. Ospreay came out and laid out the challenge and in the main event, EVIL and SANADA went back to back in World Tag League tournaments but their celebration was put on hold as The Young Bucks came out and stated that they never received their rematch for the IWGP Tag Team Championships after losing the titles to the Guerrillas Of Destiny at 'Fighting Spirit Unleashed'.
