Three teams entered the Chateau Amoeba Studio looking for Money In The Bag but only one would leave with it. At least that was supposed to be the plan. HARASHIMA, Konosuke Takeshita and Danshoku Dieno each captained a team and met up outside the studio. There they were met by CyberZ president and DDT director Takehiro Yamauchi along with comedian Shinji Saito. They explained the Money In The Bag was hidden somewhere inside the building but they also hired teams of hunters to protect it. If a team loses a match to the hunters they would be eliminated from the competition.
The first match took place on the 1st Floor. This is where DDT records episodes of TheNight on ABEBA. Dieno, Super Sasadango Machine & Makoto Oishi entered the room and found out Shinya Aoki was recording his own episode of TheNight with Sanshiro Takagi & Keigo Nakamura as his guests. There was a bag behind them but they attacked Dieno’s team to start the first match. The two teams fought out to the hallway where Dieno’s backside was sprayed with disinfectant. The fight then went through the studio where AbemaMix Friday was broadcasting a hip hop set. They went back to TheNight where Nakamura knocked out Dieno with a High Kick. Dieno slumped over the desk with his backside hanging out and Oishi threw Nakamura face first into him. Oishi then Cradled Nakamura for the three count. Dieno’s team grabbed the bag but found out it only contained signed copies of Takagi’s autobiography.
DISASTER BOX went to the 2nd Floor Basement where they found a sign on the dressing room door with “I Have A Bag” written on it. They went inside and saw a bag hanging from the ceiling. But Saito sprung three hunters on them! MAO, Mizuki Watase & Yukio Naya appeared for the 2nd match. Naya took out a mat covered in massage stones and his team removed HARASHIMA’s boots. HARASHIMA’s exposed feet hurt when he ran on the mat so he couldn’t do the Somato. Yuki Ueno found a pair of padded slippers that HARASHIMA could wear for protection. The plan worked and HARASHIMA hit Naya with the Somato to win. Naomi Yoshimura propped HARASHIMA up to grab the bag but they only contained sponges.
Over at the 4th Floor, ALL OUT bumped into Hisaya Imabayashi and found a bag hanging near the 7 Star Stage. When Takeshita went to get it he was ambushed by Gota Ihashi. Takeshita swatted him aside and went to climb it again only for Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi to appear for the next match. They fought through the studios where Midnight Bicycle Race and Shogi Battle Commentary were being recorded. The ABEMA staff told the wrestlers to get out so the match moved back out to the hall. Ihashi tried to hold one of the staff hostage but she ran away. Ihashi chased after her with a traffic cone and Akito came to the rescue, taking the cone to his stomach to protect the woman. Ihashi was then accidentally hit with the God’s Right Knee from Sakaguchi when it was meant to hit Takeshita. Higuchi tried to step in but Takeshita gave him a Brainbuster onto Ihashi. Takeshita pinned Ihashi then went to get the bag but Shunma Katsumata told him Akito was unconscious. ALL OUT are down a man but on the bright side they found a mysterious map inside the bag. Where would it lead them?
Back to Dieno’s team. They were still on the 1st Floor and walked in on two Tokyo Joshi Pro teams getting ready for a photoshoot. The Magical Sugar Rabbits and Pink Ready were arguing over who the shoot was supposed to be for. Dieno suggested they should wrestle for it. MagiRabi shoved Pink Ready onto some chairs and spun them around the room. Yuka Sakazaki found a fire extinguisher and sprayed it over Mina Shirakawa, freezing her face. The teams then fought over to the Reception Area where Shirakawa gave Mizuki the Romero Special on top of the reception desk while Yuki Kamifuku held Sakazaki in a Headscissors beside them. Back in the studio Dieno & Sasadango got caught up in the action. They got mixed up with Pink Ready, allowing MagiRabi to climb a nearby ladder and dive onto everyone below for the win. They told Dieno the bag he’s looking for is on the 5th Floor then went on to have their photoshoot.
Up Dieno’s team went to the 5th Floor. They found a bag but it was being guarded by Saki Sukeban, Yoshiko & Seigo Tachibana. These three were raring for a fight too. Saki attacked Oishi with her bamboo sword. Dieno tried to get on Yoshiko’s good side by wanting to film a TikTok video with her. Tachibana cycled into the room and placed his bike on a table. He spun the wheels on the spot so Saki could press Sasadango’s unmasked head into it. Yoshiko hit Sasadango with a Lariat then pinned him with a Running Senton. Dieno’s team were eliminated from the competition.
In the 3rd Floor, ALL OUT found DAMNATION drinking loads and loads of sake on their own. They also found a bag hanging above them. When Daisuke Sasaki found out about the contest he wanted to take it for himself. An impromptu Ladder Match broke out. Tetsuya Endo tried to climb the ladder but HARASHIMA pulled down the back of his shorts to stop him. Ueno tried to climb but Soma Takao did the same to him. Yoshimura Power Bombed Sasaki onto a table. HARASHIMA missed the Somato on Sasaki and landed on a chair, sliding himself away in the process. He turned this into a good idea by sliding the chair into his opponents. Endo threw Ueno onto the rest of DISASTER BOX, allowing Sasaki to climb the ladder and take the bag. Sasaki found 3,000 yen inside. Turns out it wasn’t the right bag, it in fact belonged to Hisaya Imabayashi. Whatever, DAMNATION went off to spend the money on more alcohol. DISASTER BOX lost the match so they were eliminated.
That left ALL OUT as the last team remaining. Katsumata was now in his Super Hardcore form. They also replaced Akito with Yuki Iino. The map brought ALL OUT over to Shibuya HARLEM where Saito was waiting for them. At last the remaining elite contestants had arrived for the final battle. The real bag was nearby but to get it they needed to win a Current Blast Death Match! Out came Atsushi Onita and the NEO Itoh Respect Army as the final hunters. Onita put Katsumata through a table with a Piledriver then fought with Iino inside a restroom. Maki Itoh knocked Takeshita off a ladder with a Headbutt. She then switched on the current for the blast bat. Takeshita grabbed the bat and swung it at Itoh but Chris Brookes jumped in to shield her and take the blast! Onita found another blast bat and hit Katsumata with it at full swing. He pinned him afterwards to win the match and eliminate ALL OUT.
Saito walked out feeling victorious. None of the teams could beat his challenge. However Onita then started to attack Saito, blaming him for never doing a Current Blast Deathmatch in Yoshimoto like he promised the last time they were together. Onita told him the next time they meet it should be in a pro wrestling match!
