*V4 for Konosuke Takeshita. Mike Bailey cashes in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
All of the applauding in the world couldn’t get Mike Bailey the KO-D Openweight Championship. He’s been doing it non-stop in the lead up to this match with Konosuke Takeshita and continued when the match began. He stopped when Takeshita dropped his guard so he could attempt a roll up. From there he took the match seriously. How seriously? Serious enough to do a Moonsault from the top of the stairway where the wrestlers entered! However Takeshita wouldn’t be beaten. He kicked out of the Ultima Weapon while Bailey kicked out of the German Suplex. Takeshita had to dig deep into his history and got the win with the Brainbustaaaaahhhhh!!!!! After the match Takeshita told Bailey “You are forever my rival. We are No. 1!” Bailey said that yesterday was Canada Day and he got to celebrate it in Japan. He called Takashita a wonderful wrestler. Bailey then joked by calling himself the worst wrestler in Canada. Keisuke Ishii entered the ring to confirm he will get the next title match on 23rd July thanks to his Right to Challenge contract. He said he saw a great match and he is glad that Takeshita is still the champion. Ishii wants to be the one to stop Takeshita. Also he doesn’t want Takeshita Vs Tetsuya Endo to main event Sumo Hall in August.
At the end of the show when Takeshita climbed up the stairs to the locker room, Naomi Yoshimura was standing at the top waiting for him. He reminded Takeshita that he will take everything important to him one by one. First was the show opening call at Korakuen Hall. Today it is Takeshita’s Gold Gym membership card! However Yoshimura’s evil plan failed when he accidentally dropped the card over the stairs. Akito simply went over, picked it up and gave it back to Takeshita. Yoshimura tried to play it off that he let Takeshita have his card back. He then warned him about his Right To Challenge contract then left. A perplexed Takeshita thanked Akito for getting him his card back.
Shigehiro Irie, Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki all entered the ring wearing panda masks.
Hirata Collection A.T. and HARASHIMA did the model walk together after they trapped Soma Takao and Toru Owashi in separate Paradise Locks. When they were finished, HARASHIMA kicked Hirata in the head and then pinned him with the Somato while still wearing the 2017 glasses. After the match HARASHIMA had a eureka moment. Hirata Collection A.T. is really Kazuki Hirata! Takao agrees and has proof. Hirata sat behind him on the tour bus and greeted him in Japanese so he can’t be Italian. Sanshiro Takagi sent Smile Squash off so he could speak to Hirata. He wanted to know if Hirata was Italian then why does he speak in English? Takagi decided to settle this with a Handicap Match on 15th July: Takagi & Owashi Vs Hirata. Owashi asked to be removed but he was ignored. Hirata swore he will prove that he is a real Italian and he will have an Italian revolution!
Saki Akai announced a special tag match for 23rd July. She and Masahiro Takanashi will take on Makoto Oishi and a mystery wrestler. That mystery wrestler was revealed to be Yoshiko from SEAdLINNNG! Akai said Yoshiko was one of her first rivals in wrestling and she wants to test out all the skills she has learned since they last fought each other. Yoshiko told Akai she will give her pain that she will never forget. Akai threatened to kick Yoshiko’s face in response.
