*V1 for YaroZ.
The splintered friendship between Shigehiro Irie and Soma Takao had not quite healed yet. Irie pinned Takao to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Kazusada Higuchi. Irie offered to shake Takao’s hand after the match. Takao declined, said “Another time” and left with HARASHIMA. When they were gone, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi appeared. They congratulated YaroZ for a successful defence then said they will be challenging them after they win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from NωA. The GM Amon Tsurumi reminded Shuten-dōji that NωA beat them today. Takanashi called that a miracle that won’t happen again. Sakaguchi asked if YaroZ are prepared to kill him in order to win. Higuchi said he’s been ready for a long time.
The show was a homecoming for a few wrestlers on the roster. MAO is from Osaki which is near Miyagi. He was given a 30kg bag of rice, the kind of rice used to brew the local sake, by the mayor of Osaki before the semi-main event. MAO went on to win the match for NωA.
For the second time, Daisuke Sasaki handed Akito his DDT Extreme Title belt after their match. But this time Sasaki acted like Akito stole it from him. Sasaki called Akito a thief and made Amon Tsurumi retrieve the belt and give it back to him. When ALL OUT left, Sasaki changed the subject to Tetusya Endo coming home to Miyagi. Endo admitted he doesn’t remember anything about the place. Sasaki slapped him and then Endo said he remembered everything! He remembers the hot noodles, the village foxes and that his home town Shiroishi is just an hour and a half car ride away from here. Sasaki didn’t understand what he is talking about.
Danshoku Dino used a new version of the Danshoku Nightmare called the Danshoku Nightmare VR. The move involves Dino’s opponent being laid onto the bottom rope, then Dino stands on their arms and squats onto their face with the ropes suspending him. Mike Bailey was the first victim of the move and was rendered powerless.
A pre-show fan club event was interrupted by Naomi Yoshimura. Guess what? He had yet another story about Konosuke Takeshita ruining his life. This time it was about Yoshimura’s favourite high school teacher, the only one who card for him, was suddenly fired one day. He was fired because he was caught peeping into the girls changing rooms. Who was it that caught him? Why it was Takeshita of course!
