The Danshoku Dino hid in a corner with a blanket draped over him during the entrances for the main event. With three Right To Challenge Contracts now in his possession he could cash in for a title shot, lose a contract should he be defeated and still have one contract remaining for another go. However he instead got cold feet when both HARASHIMA and Kazusada Higuchi stared at him. Dino said he just wanted to see a sporting contest between those two and made them shake each other’s hand before leaving.
In a small preview of the KO-D Tag Team Title Next Challenger match, Shuten-dōji defeated Drift in the semi-main event. After taking the pin Keisuke Ishii said he is now in a state of crisis over the match. How can he & Shigehiro Irie go after the tag titles if they can’t beat the competition?
Another Right To Challenge movement took place when Daisuke Sasaki made Antonio Honda submit in Match #4. Sasaki currently isn’t interested in going after the KO-D Openweight Title. He instead wondered if he could use the contract to marry Candice LeRae. He came to the conclusion that he will need to collect all five active contracts to make that happen.
