NJPW Best of the Super Juniors
Day 13 Results
May 31, 2019
It’s been a long journey over the course of the past three weeks, but the A Block has finally come to an end. With an all-time record-breaking performance, Shingo Takagi has taken the block with an astonishing 18 points to remain undefeated, defeating the previous record held by Finn Balor and Low Ki (16).

Bullet Club’s Taiji Ishimori and IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Dragon Lee both finished the block with a respectable 14 points, but neither could get past the obstacle of New Japan’s seemingly unbeatable Last Dragon, who has yet to be pinned or submitted since joining the promotion last October.
While Marty Scurll finishing with a 5-4 record has to be somewhat of a disappointment for “The Villain”, 10 points is the highest of his three performances in the annual tournament so far, after earning 8 points in both 2017 and 2018. One other notable name is Jonathan Gresham, who finished 4-5 with 8 points (not a small number for an outsider coming in for his first time) and really put himself on the map.
