It was Pancrase Vs “USA!” in the main event of today’s Union show. Hikaru Sato put his Union Max Championship on the line against the patriotic American Hiroshi Fukuda. While on paper the match looked one-sided, Fukuda turned out to be no pushover for the champion. Sato brought out the strikes and submissions but ignored the ref’s call to stop attacking Fukuda in the corner. Seiya Morohashi yelled at Sato to back off and the two kept glancing at each other until Fukuda started fighting back. Fukuda’s American style offence was effective going into the late stages of the match and the champ was in trouble when he was put in the Sharpshooter. Sato turned the tables when he countered a Discus Punch into a Shoulder Lock. Sato locked in the move tightly to the point where the referee stepped in and stopped the match in his favour.
Sato looked out among the Union wrestlers to search for his next challenger. He told them that they cannot just eat meat to become great, they have to eat ther vegetables aswell. Shuji Ishikawa approached Sato and challenged him to a title match. He promised to beat Sato and bring the MAX Title back to Union.
Ladybeard is the new Fly To Everywhere Champion after he defeated Cherry in the semi-main event. Cherry was prepared to embarress the challenger by bringing in an elctric shaver. She low blowed Ladybeard and then tried to shave him by force! Ladybeard had to bite Cherry’s arm in order to escape. Cherry did what she could but could not avoid the Nutcracker finisher. Ladybeard screamed with joy when he won the title and went on to call himself a really cute champion. In a backstage interview Ladybeard said he wants Mio Shirai to be his first challenger.
Ryu Gouma spoke about gambling on the World Cup at the beginning of the show. He rambled on about the typical penalties for illegally gambling and also some loopholes to get away with it. His moral of the story is it’s ok to gamble a little bit if you bet with something like a meal. Later in the show he took part in the Idea Pocket sponsored match against Madoka. Gouma had with him ¥30,000 and tried over and over to bribe Madoka to take a dive. Madoka wanted to take it but the referee kept stopping them. The referee eventually Super Kicked Gouma for his attempted bribary and Madoka then pinned him with a Small Package. After the match Idea Pocket announced that Tsubasa Amami has graduated from Union and this was her final show.
Some challenges were thrown out throughout the show. Daichi Kazato challenged Goro Jr. to a match after the 6-Man Tag. FUMA asked Mitomi Masayuki for another match sometime after he beat him in the opener.
