Shuji Ishikawa was struck with rubella in the lead up to the show and forced to miss the event, cancelling his DDT Extreme Title defence against Shigehiro Irie. Big Rude offered to lead Union by example and take Shuji’s place. He was so determined to take the match he decided to drop the Big Rude gimmick and wrestle as Seiya Morohashi instead. Despite his good intentions, Morohashi could not defeat Irie in the Last Man Standing Match. He got close thanks to the use of a chair several times but eventually Irie flattened him with the Vertical Drop Back Flip. Irie then headbutted Morohashi into a bloody pulp until he could no longer stand.
Naomi Susan addressed everyone after the show. She thanked the roster for fighting their best and working together in Union, even with Ishikawa’s absence. She said Union’s next show will take place on 12th August. Hiroshi Fukuda suggested that the main event should be him versus Ric Flair. Seiya Morohashi then took the mic and gave a toast to Union.
With Big Rude out of the semi-main event, the Hardcore Tag Team match was turned into a Hardcore Triple Threat. Isami Kodaka defeated Ken Ohka & Kengo Ohka when he submitted Ken with a Scorpion Deathlock.
The songs used in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match were “Kuroku Nuritsubuse” by Eikichi Yazawa, “Love Revolution 21″ by Morning Musume, “Chai Maxx” by Momoiro Clover Z, the Lambada and “Memory Of Love” by Shigeru Matsuzaki. Hiroshi Fukuda tried to dance with every wrestler during the musical moments, even his opponents. When Rumi Kazama asked him why he did this, Fukuda said “I just want to get along with everyone.” Fukuda wants to be friends with many wrestlers from many organisations. Kazama wasn’t happy and she ditched him. This made Fukuda upset and he ran away from ringside crying.
Cherry came out wearing bunny ears and asked the crowd who was the cuter looking bunny, her or Rabbit Miu? Cherry was booed while Miu got cheered. During the match, Cherry tried to force Miu to have her first drink of wine but it was knocked away. After Cherry won the match, she asked Miu if she was a good rabbit and offered a handshake. Miu declined and walked off.
Goro Jr. used Lancashire style wrestling to win his match against Taichi Kazato. Well, at least that is what he claims.
There was said to be a very long line of people waiting to take photos with Naomi Susan, Cherry and Mio Shirai during intermission.
