6. 3 Way Tag Match: Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Polly and Akito & Yasu Urano when Takeshita pinned Sasaki with the German Suplex (18:39).
Daisuke Sasaki has put so much focus into his pets and Yukio Sakaguchi that he did not see this loss coming. Konosuke Takeshita countered Sasaki’s Hurricanrana into a DDT. He then avoided La Mistica and struck Sasaki with a Lariat. The German Suplex put away Sasaki and should improve Takeshita’s chances of getting a title shot.
HARASHIMA was supposed to come out at the beginning of the show to give a promo but he was nowhere to be seen. When Makoto Oishi called him out on it before their match HARASHIMA admitted he needed to use a toilet and completely forgot about the promo.
A mysterious masked man attacked Sakaguchi after his match. Daisuke Kiso tried to stop the masked man and was given a Michinoku Driver II for his troubles. Sakaguchi obviously knew who it was and got revenge by attacking Sasaki after the main event. He gave him a warning about their upcoming KO-D Openweight Title match before Antonio Honda told both of them to stop fighting.
Mao Inoue had to miss the show due to a foot injury. Nobuhiro Shimatani took his place on short notice but forgot his wrestling gear so he had to wrestle in Inoue’s gear instead.
