6d. Ken Ohka eliminated Seiya Morohashi with the Spear Of Flame (22:18).
Ganbare☆Wrestling scored a huge victory over Union proving that they are a company to be taken seriously. Ken Ohka’s plan to bombard Osamu Namiguchi with messages uring him to join his team worked out as his nemesis joined the Ganpuro side in the 6-Man Tag Elimination main event. Ohka wound up as the last man standing, pinning Seiya Morohashi to win the match. Naomi Susan told him afterwards not to get carried away that Ganpuro beat Union once. She challenged Ohka to face Shuji Ishikawa in Union on 18th May to settle the feud.
Ohka announced the creation of the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament to be held on 1st May. He wants Ganpuro to be a major sports league not just for wrestling but for martial arts as well. Richard Burn showed up to apply for the tournament and said he would quit Union to fight here.
The Judo Jacket Match between Cherry and Gorikiko was going to be so violent that Ganpuro did not want to hold it in front of a live audience. When they could not find another building to host the bout it had to go to the TEC Office in Shinjuku for permission. The two women fought around the building and Cherry eventually choked out Gorikiko to win.
Dr. Kiriko defeated Survival Tobita and afterwards tried to murder him with the same injection he used to put down J-Soul Pandita III. However the injection did not work because Tobita is human and thus immune to the poison. Tobita swore he will become a doctor and figure out a way to defeat Kiriko.

The video ended with Akiyama chasing away Ishii with the sword. Back at the show Akiyama actually appeared telling Ishii and Amon Tsurumi to “Stop messing around, you bastards!” Tsurumi fell to his hands and knees apologising but Ishii again asked for another title match. Akiyama finally gave up and accepted the challenge. He and Yoshinobu Kanemaru will come to DDT on 29th April to defend the All Asia Tag Titles against Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie.
Kazuki Hirata has really gotten into pretending to be Magnum TOKYO, using his entrance music and dancing like him before and after the match.
