Three preview matches for the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament took place on this show. Each match had a Group A wrestler against a Group B wrestler. It is possible that one of these matches can end up happening again in the final match.
In the main event Ryuichi Sekine defeated Daichi Kazato in a back and forth contest. Sekine got the fall when he hit the Kamikaze followed bu the Ryusetsu kick. Sekine said after the match that he cannot afford to lose even to his Cavalry partner Ryota Nakatsu. His goal is to be the ace of BASARA! Kazato defended his loss by claiming it’s all part of his secret plan. This match was just a test.
Buddies Hiroshi Fukuda and SAGAT had to face each other one on one. According to Fukuda, SAGAT said he wanted to have a sporting contest between the two because he respects Fukuda so much. Turns out it was a mistranslation because SAGAT did not hold back from aggressively attacking his friend. Fukuda fought back with some dirty tactics including a Low Blow after the referee was knocked down. Fukuda wore down SAGAT with a Dragon Sleeper and was able to pin him with the Perfect Plex. The two made up afterwards.
Under normal circumstances Isami Kodaka Vs Ryu Gouma is a mismatch. However Kodaka went into the match with his head heavily bandaged to cover a left eye injury. That evened the odds a little bit. Kodaka was still getting the better of Gouma, so much so that Gouma eventually wanted to quit and left the ring with Kodaka chasing after him. Gouma offered a handshake with the intention to low blow Kodaka but it was blocked. Kodaka tried to Suplex Gouma onto the floor but that was also blocked. With the referee counting close to 20 Kodaka tried to return to the ring but Gouma attacked him with his Statue Book until they were both counted out. Backstage Kodaka was unhappy with the result. A draw is the same as a loss to him. He reckons his eye injury will be healed before the tournament starts so he’s not letting that worry him. Gouma thinks if he can get a draw with the ace of BASARA then he can get a draw with anybody! His goal now seems to be to end all of his group matches in a draw!
