*V1 for New Generation Combination.
The New Generation Combination got a bit of revenge on Isami Kodaka. Neither of them were able to win the KO-D Openweight Title from him but he wasn’t able to take the KO-D Tag Team Titles from them either. Tetsuya Endo put Ryota Nakatsu away with the Torture Rack Bomb and Sky Twister Press. Kodaka requested a rematch down the line. Takeshita said he would like another single and tag match so he can win both and get a 3-2 record against Kodaka. While this was going on Masa Takanashi suddenly snuck into the ring. Takanashi went for the Takatonic on Kodaka but the champion avoided it and kicked Takanashi in the face.
Daisuke Sasaki approached Amon Tsurumi at the end of the show demanding a KO-D Tag Team Titles shot in March. Tsurumi agreed that Sasaki deserves a shot because his previous title reign had to be vacated. However both Kota Ibushi and Suguru Miyatake are injured so who can Sasaki team with? Tsurumi told Sasaki he’s been emotionally unstable ever since Candice LeRae “dumped” him. Sasaki suddenlt broke down into tears. Tsurumi tried to cheer him up but also mentioned LeRae getting engaged to someone else. In an instant Sasaki attacked Tsurumi with his belt and left the ring. Tsurumi asked the New Gen Combo to help him but they said he was okay.
Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie are riding a wave of momentum going into their All Asia Tag Team Title match next week. They distinctly remember the last time they fought Yankee Two Kenju back in December 2013. Ishii remembers being pinned after 13 minutes and 26 seconds. He’s been constantly reminding Irie of that match to motivate the both of them.
According to Masa Takanashi his victory over Yusuke Kubo proves he can win a fair fight. He shook Kubo’s hand after the match but it was all a ruse for his failed ambush later in the show.
Seiya Morohashi stole Kazuki Hirata’s GO! Glasses before Match #4. Hirata went to the Samurai TV! commentary table looking for a replacement pair and took Haruo Murata’s glasses instead. When he put them on he got the song “Yokohama Twilight” playing over the speakers instead of “TOKYO Go!” Rikiya Shindo then handed his glasses to Hirata and the song changed to “Manato No Yoko, Yokohama, Yokosuka”.
When Hirata won the match he grabbed a microphone and was ready to challenge #OhkaEmpire to a rematch for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. However Sanshiro Takagi kicked him aside and instead added a stipulation to his match with KENSO on 31st January. It will be a 60 minute Iron Man Match! Amon Tsurumi came out and told Takagi that the show is too full to have a 60 minute match. They made a deal. The Iron Man match can go ahead but it has to be a pre-show dark match. Korakuen Hall is scheduled to open up exactly one hour before the show starts so the match will begin 10 minutes before the doors open to allow a brief warm up break before the show properly starts. There is a chance the final 10 minutes of the match will clash with the King Of Dark Title bout. Both will happen at the same time if necessary.
Match #2 ended when Guanchulo took off his wrestling gear and revealed he was wearing Danshoku tights. The referee had to call the match off when Guanchulo and Danshoku Dino did Danshoku things to the other wrestlers. Guanchulo said he is now Gaychulo.
