DDT, Big Japan and K-DOJO were in Korakuen Hall for their annual New Year’s Eve event. This year the show was entirely built around a tag team tournament featuring wrestlers from all three promotions. Matches that ended in a Time Limit Draw went to Sudden Death with one count pinfalls. Danshoku Dino and Keisuke Ishii were originally supposed to compete but were both pulled from the show, Dino due to a hernia and Ishii due to a fever. Antonio Honda and Soma Takao took their places.

Yuko Miyamoto and Isami Kodaka capped off a successful 2014 by winning the tag team tournament. Yankee Nichokenju defeated four strong teams to be claimed the winners: KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi, Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi, Ryuji Ito & Jaki Numazawa and in the final Yuji Hino & Yuji Okabayashi.

Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo fought Big Japan’s deathmatch duo Ryuji Ito & Jaki Numazawa. The bout was turned into a hardcore match with steel chairs placed around the ring. Endo was left a bloody mess but he and Takeshita fought until the time expired. Unfortunately in Sudden Death, Ito pinned Endo for his team to advance. Backstage Endo said he will nominate Ito & Numazawa as the next challengers for the KO-D Tag Team Titles after they beat Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi in Saitama Super Arena!

Ito & Numazawa took the violent road up to the semi-finals. Each of their matches in the tournament were Hardcore Matches. Their semi-final against Kodaka & Miyamoto was also a Fluorescent Lighttube Death Match! It was also the match that was taking place when the clock struck midnight.

Takayuki Ueki was in the Brahman Brothers’ corner for their match against HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano. Ueki pulled out a gun and threatened to use it on everybody but it was just to distract everyone for a Diving Cross Body. Everybody just moved out of the way and he missed.

TAKA Michinoku waited until the show began to announce his mystery partner. It was The Great Kojika! Their opponents Sanshiro Takagi & Abdullah Kobayashi brought in a bucket of rice cakes to use as weapons. The plan backfired when Kojika forced a rice cake into Takagi’s mouth and pinned him in the process.

The Japan Indie Awards 2014 were presented by Samurai! TV during the show. DDT won the Best Box Office (17th August “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2014”), Best Bout (Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo, 28th September) and MVP (HARASHIMA) awards. Best Unit went to Muno Taiyo (The Great Sasauke & Brahman Brothers) from Michinoku Pro and Best Newcomer went to Takayuki Ueki from Big Japan.
