*V1 for Jun Kasai.
Bowls of Chinese food were placed in the corner for the Yokohama Chinatown TLC Match. The goal of the match was to either beat your opponent as normal or eat three bowls of Chinese food. Makoto Oishi offered a handshake before the match but Jun Kasai flipped him the middle finger. However he agreed to sit down and eat a bowl of noodles with Oishi before fighting. When they finished they began throwing punches. Oishi reached for a second bowl but Kasai stopped him by hitting him with a lady’s handbag at ringside. Oishi fought back with a chair until Kasai was too beat up to prevent him from finishing the second bowl. Oishi then used a ladder to target Kasai’s legs. He put Kasai in a Figure Four Leg Lock and tried to eat the third bowl at the same time. Kasai fought his way out and hit a Lariat followed by the Reverse Tiger Driver. Oishi kicked out of that and also kicked out of the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder! Kasai did one more Reverse Tiger Driver, the Vertical Drop kind and that was it for Oishi. Kasai called out for his next challenger. Doesn’t matter if it is a foreigner, a woman, a child or an animal. Out came Akito, he’s not afraid of Kasai. He asked the champion what his favourite match rules are. Kasai said Death Match. Akito suggested a Lighttube Death Match, but only one Lighttube. Whoever breaks it with their opponent wins. Kasai accepted and the match will take place on 3rd January.
Konosuke Takeshita describes Mad Paulie as somebody who has no feelings or even a human heart. However he noticed a glimpse of humanity coming from him during today’s match. Paulie cares about winning and losing if nothing else. Takeshita’s preparations for their Christmas Day singles match is to eat snacks instead of turkey.
HARASHIMA and Shigehiro Irie had to be pulled apart after Match #5.
