Powell’s POV: Naito, Sanada, Evil, and Takahashi wrestled in a traditional tag match on Sunday despite being in the ring with Takagi and Bushi the night before. None of the eight wrestlers were allowed to work the NJPW show that took place today in Tokyo. Here’s wishing everyone involved good health.
