The main event pitted two classes of DNA students against each other. Kazusada Higuchi & Kota Umeda were here from the start while Mao Inoue & Mizuki Watase debuted for DNA around 9 months later. Higuchi was amazed by the progress Inoue & Watase have made since then. Umeda switched his attention towards KENSO. In no friendly terms, Umeda called KENSO to come down to the ring. Higuchi calmed down the situation by suggesting Umeda and KENSO to have a match on 1st July. KENSO accepted and left the ring. Umeda swore a lot and said he has to beat KENSO next month.
After spending three months on the shelf with an injury, Daiki Shimomura had his comeback match with Shunma Katsumata. From the beginning he was in danger when Katsumata knocked him out of the ring and prepared to do a Quebrada. Shimomura grabbed Katsumata’s leg before he jumped and pulled him out of the ring. Katsumata was later able to hit the Quebrada and put Shimomura away with the Lightning Spiral followed by the Swan Dive X Factor.
KENSO didn’t think much of Rainbow Kawamura. He told Kawamura that his entrance was long and boring. During the match they both shouted “Dondake!” at each other after every move, which is some sort of slang way of saying “what the hell?”. KENSO took control and beat Kawamura with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster.
It was announced Big Japan and DDT will host a joint charity show in Kumamoto in aid of the reconstruction efforts after April’s earthquake. The show will be free to attend. Kumamoto’s own Kota Umeda will be wrestling on the show.
