8/3 Dragon Gate Results
Dragon gate began the annual Summer Adventure Tag Tournament Wednesday, this year opting for a single-elimination tournament rather than the usual league format. Results from the monthly Tokyo big show at Korakuen (the results are rather late because SportsNavi didn’t cover this one, probably because their regular reporter likely is with New Japan doing the G1 CLIMAX this month):
