7. Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Honda submitted Hirata with a Manjigatame (14:41).
Kazuki Hirata spoke on Toru Owashi’s behalf before the main event began. Hirata warned Konosuke Takeshita that Owashi will be seriously strong when they fight for the KO-D Openweight Title at Beer Garden Week, so Takeshita better be prepared! The bell rang and Hirata charged at Takeshita. He took a boot to the face and was almost immediately pinned but he just kicked out before three. Takeshita later took out Owashi with a Plancha out of the ring. Antonio Honda then submitted Hirata with a Manjigatame after he avoided the Viagra Driver. Honda said he could see the look of wonder on Owashi’s face as he wrestled with Takeshita. Honda now looks forward to watching the title match. Takeshita told Owashi he is ready even if Owashi fights at 120%.
KAI was really happy to be back home in Yokohama. He went around singing the Yokohama Baystars cheer song during the show’s opening announcements. However his team’s game plan against Smile Squash fell apart when he accidentally Clotheslined both Shota and Ken Ohka. There was some recovery and the KO-D Tag Team Champions were able to hit HARASHIMA with the Double Spear Of Flame. Unfortunately Shota was the legal man and he failed to capitalise. HARASHIMA recovered, hit the Somato and won the match for Smile Squash. KAI sang the Baystars song again backstage to cheer his team up.
Daisuke Sasaki continued to attack Team DNA after DAMNATION defeated them. This prompted Dick Togo to run out and confront Sasaki for what he did to him at Korakuen Hall last week. Mad Paulie stood in his way but Togo said Sasaki’s pet is also his pet, so sit! Paulie did what Togo said and backed off. Tetsuya Endo blindsided Togo with a Dropkick from behind. Togo retaliated with a Lariat and gave Sasaki the Pedigree. He then challenged Sasaki & Endo to a tag team match at “PETER PAN 2016” in Sumo Hall. Amon Tsurumi stepped in and asked if Togo had a partner? Togo admitted he hadn’t thought that far ahead. Tsurumi decided that Mike Bailey will team with Togo to take on DAMNATION!
The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title tournament began with NωA performing their single “Never Give Up ☆ I LOVE YOU”. Super Sasadango Machine clapped to the song even though he was on the other team. Danshoku Dino questioned Sasadango’s priorities since he is wrestling for Fantastic Memories while managing NωA. Sasadango assured Dino he wanted to win the 6-Man Tag Titles. That became questionable when Sasadango held back from fighting with Makoto Oishi during the match. His Lehmann Shock attempt was unusual and allowed Oishi to cradle him into the match winning pin. Sasadango praised NωA for the win and said they passed their first test. He then apologised to the rest of Fantastic Memories for being careless and promised they will get another opportunity to go after the titles. In a backstage interview Sasadango said he wants Dick Togo to be the NωA’s fourth member.
