The match restarted and Higuchi overpowered Katsumata’s Cradle attempt to pin him. In the semi final Higuchi fought off a spirited attack from Kota Umeda. Meanwhile Ryota Nakatsu made quick work of Suguru Miyatake, beating him in 20 seconds. Despite the disadvantage of wrestling longer matches on the way to the final, Higuchi was able to beat Nakatsu and win the tournament. His prize is 100,000 yen and and a match against Katsuhiko Nakajima in the main event of “DNA 9” on 22nd September.

Watase said he has dreamt of being a wrestler since elementary school. Inoue apologised to his parents but said he was grateful for them and his teachers for letting him take the path of a pro wrestler.
