Today’s Union show featured the final appearance of Hiroshi Fukuda before he transfers over to All Japan. Unfortunately Fukuda suffered a dislocated shoulder blade during the week and was unable to wrestle. He told the fans that the injury is healing slowly and he will not rush back to the ring before he is ready.
Fukuda hosted the main event Royal Rumble that was created to crown the new Mr. Perfect. The match saw the return of a Nazo Fukumen, the mysterious masked man gimmick Fukuda was involved with last year when he was banished from Union. This one was unmasked by SAGAT and revealed to be Jun Kasai! The rest of the field was filled with Union wrestlers and unexpected participants such as A.YAZAWA, Mame Endo and musician Hosomino Shyboy. MEN’S Teioh was the last man standing, lastly pinning SAGAT with the Perfect Plex. Fukuda presented Teioh with a crown, cloak and tambourine to officially recognise him as the 2nd generation Mr. Perfect!
Daichi Kazato refused to shake hands with Isami Kodaka after the semi-main event. Shibata recorded the match with his GoPro and said he will send it to Hikaru Sato so they can prepare for the UWA World Tag Team Title match on 3rd November.
The inter-gender trios match became more heated when Ryu Gouma blamed Union’s joshi division for impacting the company’s profits. Cherry argued that couldn’t be true. She also said she was the only person in the match who finished in the Dramatic General Election Top 20. Gouma said he was using this match to assess each woman’s worth and would restructure Union’s finances based on that information. He even suggested getting rid of the women’s division entirely. Mio Shirai wondered if Gouma was paranoid because he isn’t in a relationship. Gouma snapped and attacked Shirai to start the match. Shuji Ishikawa almost destroyed Cherry when he attempted to give her the Splash Mountain outside the ring but Shirai came to the rescue. Cherry later hit the Cherryton Bomb and Spring Night Love for a nearfall but Ishikawa hit back with the Fire Thunder Driver. He then hit the Splash Mountain inside the ring for the victory.
