Karl Fredericks s. Yota Tsuji with a Half Crab – These two have a bit of a rivalry since Fredericks won the Young Lion Cup. The two went back and forth until Fredericks decked Tsugi with a dropkick. Tsuji battled back and tried for a Boston Crab. Fredericks escaped and applied a Half Crab of his own to get the submission victory.
Los Ingobernables De Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Sanada, BUSHI, & Shingo Takagi) b. Suzuki-Gun (Minoru Suzuki, Rev Pro Undisputed Heavyweight Champion Zack Sabre Jr., Taichi, & DOUKI) when Naito pinned Douki with Destino – Suzuki-Gun not only attacked before the bell but attacked before Naito made it to the ring. Everybody brawled of the floor which built to Douki diving off the top onto everybody. By the time everything got back in the ring, Bushi was getting taken apart. Sanada got the hot tag and put Douki in the Paradise Lock. He tried to put Saber in as well, but Sabre escaped. A double tag-out saw Takagi and Suzuki go at it again. Naito and Taichi fought fiercely as well. The obligatory multi-man brawl broke out which saw Naito get the win with Destino on Douki.
After the match, the two heel teams continued to brawl.
Bullet Club (IWGP Intercontinental Champion Jay White, Yujiro Takahashi, KENTA, & Gedo) b. Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Tomoaki Honma, & Toa Henare when White pinned Henare with a Blade Runner – As expected, the heels attacked before the bell and took the match immediately to the floor. They got the heat on Honma. Ishii got the hot tag and ran wild until fighting to a double down with Kenta. Henare tagged in and hit a double Kokeshi with Honma on Takahashi. Henare tried for a suplex, but Takahashi escaped and tagged in White. Goto saved Henare from a Blade Runner, which saw Henare try to make a comeback. Takahashi distracted the referee and Gedo distracted Henare, which allowed White to hit the Blade Runner on Henare to get the pin.
After the match, White and KENTA hit their respective finishers on Goto and Ishii, then posed with their title belts.
The rest of the matches are Tag League matches.
El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru b. Tiger Mask IV & Yuya Uemera when Desperado submitted Uemera with a Stretch Muffler – In interviews, the heels referred to this match as a handicap match for Tiger, because the Young Lion won’t even be a factor. Tiger and Uemera responded by attacking before the bell. They got some shine in the opening minutes, but the heels got the upper hand when the fight went to the floor. Back in the ring, Desperado ripped up Tiger’s mask, effectively taking him out of the match, leaving Uemera alone in the ring. Tiger somehow located another mask and put it on before getting the hot tag. Tiger ran wild for a bit until the numbers caught up to him. Uemera tagged back in and made a comeback. He put Desperado in a Half Crab. Desperado fought until he finally made the rope break. During the commotion, Kanemaru spit his whiskey in Uemera’s eyes so Desperado could use the Stretch Muffler and get the submission.
IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champions Taiji Ishimori & El Phantasmo b. TJP & Clark Connors when Phantasmo pinned Connors with a Frog Splash – Like the previous match, the Young Lion attacked right out of the gate. The heels managed to cut off TJP and get the heat on him. The babyfaces rallied and had both heels in submissions at one point. Iahimori still managed to hit Connors with a Bloody Cross, which Phantasmo followed up on with a Frog Splash to get the pin.
Roppongi 3K (Sho & Yoh) b. Volador Jr. & Titan when Sho pinned Titan with a German Suplex – Both teams shook hands before the match and wrestled as babyfaces. As expected, this resulted in a high flying, action-packed match that neither team got any sustained momentum. At one point, R3K had both Volador and Titan in submissions. At the 15-minute mark, Titan made a comeback and got several exciting near falls on Sho. However, Sho hit a German Suplex and got a pinfall.
The Birds Of Prey (IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay & Robbie Eagles) b. The MegaCoaches (Ryusuke Taguchi & Rocky Romero) when Ospreay pinned Romero with a Stormbreaker – Somewhere along the way Taguchi and Romero got renamed The MegaCoaches, or they were that all along and I didn’t notice. Anyway, once again, both teams were babyfaces. There was the usual Taguchi comedy of running the ropes and corner attacks. The Birds turned the tide and worked over Romero while singing Happy Birthday to him. Taguchi got the tag and ran wild with Hip Attacks. The Coaches made their comeback and worked over Eagles. After a multi-man brawl Ospreay tried to hit a Stormbreaker. Romero reversed into a hurricanrana. Both teams broke up several pin attempts. Taguchi hit a dive to the outside that took down Eagles, leaving Ospreay and Romero in the ring. They battled to a double-down at the 20-minute mark. Both men traded strikes as they got to their feet. Taguchi broke up another pin after Ospreay hit an Oscutter. Eagles disposed of Taguchi, allowing Ospreay to hit Stormbreaker on Romero to get the pin.
