3. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Keisuke Ishii & Shunma Katsumata when Paulie pinned Katsumata with the Paulie Buster (8:07).
4. 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno defeated Antonio Honda and Daiki Shimomura when Dieno pinned Shimomura with the True Danshoku Driver (8:35).
5. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when KUDO pinned Shimatani with the Backspin Kick (10:03).
6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno when Takeshita pinned Ueno with the Surprise Rose (13:17).
7. Utsunomiya Specialty! Romantic Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi when Irie pinned Oishi with the Beast Bomber (12:55).
Shigehiro Irie told Kazusada Higuchi that today’s main event was won by the kind of pro wrestling that Irie believes in. He will shows Higuchi more of it at their KO-D Openweight Title match later this month.
Konosuke Takeshita used the Surprise Rose to win today’s match because the new season of The Bachelor Japan begun recently. He doesn’t appear in the show but maybe he can get a spot for the next season. Until then the Surprise Rose is what bachelor Takeshita will give to other wrestlers in the ring.
HARASHIMA was again struck below the belt in a match against DAMNATION. This time when Soma Takao caught one of his kicks it was Daisuke Sasaki who snuck behind HARASHIMA and gave him the low blow. However the DDT Elder Brothers got the win afterwards when KUDO pinned Nobuhiro Shimatani.
Before the 3 Way Match began Daiki Shimomura told his opponents he will go to the top of DDT by beating them. Danshoku Dieno told him that they aren’t at the top right now so that can’t be accurate.
Hiratimo Dragon now has two Right To Challenge Gauntlets in his possession. When Yukinori Matsui was taken out during the match, Hiratimo unmasked and gave it to Mike Bailey, telling him it was a gift. Bailey happily accepted the mask and put it on. Matsui came back, Hiratimo acted like Bailey unmasked him and Bailey was disqualified.
