NJPW Best Of The Super Jr update…

So far the returning legend Ultimo Dragon has dominated Group B, he’s defeated the 4 men put in his way so far, Tiger, Nakajima, Romero and Garuda… But he has still to face the IWGP Jr champion Heat and the former champ Naruse.

In block A its all pretty even but Liger did fall in a shock quick loss to Ryusuke Taguchi, the Jr supernova pinning the legend with a dropkick after 45 secs! Last years winner Kakihara remains undefeated after his return from injury and AmDragon and Kanemoto two pre-tournement picks of many are still in the chasing pack too…
