Yone/Sugiura: 3-0-2, 8 points
Akiyama/Saito: 3-2, 6 points
Morishima/Yoshie: 3-2, 6 points
Shiozaki/Taniguchi: 2-2-2, 6 points
Takayama/Sano: 2-2-1, 5 points
Smith/Inoue: 2-3-1, 5 points
Hero/Castagnoli: 2-4, 4 points
Miyahara/Sasaki: 1-4, 2 points
Each team now has 1 or 2 matches left. Miyahara/Sasaki & Smith/Inoue are now out of it. If Yone/Sugiura win on 4/27 (Takayama/Sano) the worst they can do is a tiebreaker if Akiyama/Saito and/or Morishima/Yoshie win out. Note that Akiyama/Saito-Sugiura/Yone will also happen on 4/29, which could decide the whole thing. Morishima/Yoshie have Sasaki/Miyahara next then they finish with Takayama/Sano. Shiozaki/Taniguchi can only hope to force a tiebreaker because they only have 1 match left-and they could be out by then because it’s not until 4/29.
