Smile Squash and Shuten-dōji are the last teams to qualify for the 2nd round of the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles tournament. Smile Squash went over Happy Motels while Shuten-dōji defeated T2Hide after a planned ambush from T2Hide went sour. Kazuki Hirata did not appear with Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi when they made their entrance. Takagi explained that Hirata got lost in Kobe so they will have to wrestle without him. Midway through the match Hirata’s music began to play and he rushed down to the ring to ambush his weakened opponents. Yukio Sakaguchi stopped him easily. A dance off only delayed the inevitable and Sakaguchi put an end to it with a Penalty Kick. Takagi apologised to Owashi for the plan’s failure putting his Right To Challenge contract at risk.
Makoto Oishi went into his match against Dick Togo with a special instruction from his manager Super Sasadango Machine. He wants Oishi to recruit Togo for the NωA. Oishi made Togo promise to join the idol group if Oishi could beat him. Togo was on the verge of winning when Daisuke Sasaki ran out and pushed him off the top rope. Oishi capitalised and pinned Togo for the upset. Togo reluctantly put on an NωA shirt and posed with his new bandmates. Togo got revenge on Sasaki later in the show when he attacked him during Sasaki’s tag match. Togo gave Sasaki the Pedigree and the Diving Senton while the referee was absent then placed Kouki Iwasaki on top of him for the pin. He then gave a Pedigree to the other NωA members. After Togo left the ring Oishi announced that “Togo-tan” had just graduated from NωA due to “various circumstances”. In a backstage interview Togo said the only NWA he knows is the one with Harley Race and Ric Flair in it.
