The crowd was behind him and gave a big cheer when he pinned Yasu Urano to win the match for his team. Omuta said afterwards that he still tries his hardest even though he is now 50 years old. He asked the fans to come back and each bring a friend to fill up the building when he eventually has his retirement show. He then thanked Sanshiro Takagi, Akebono and Yoshihiro Takayama for their help today.

Konosuke Takeshita & Akito now have a 2-0 record as a team. They’re pleased that they were able to beat an established team like Shuten-dōji and now look forward to facing Smile Squash tomorrow.

Danshoku Dino claimed Omuta as a Gay Town after his victory. He then remembered Omuta is already a Gay Town and said its population is 70% gay. He then rallied the fans to give the middle finger against Japan’s failing birthrate.

Danshoku Dino held a Coming Out party for Royce Isaacs at the Cholesterol Bar in Shinjuku earlier today. Isaacs explained that when he used the Lip Lock on Antonio Honda during their match at the weekend he felt comfortable with the action. Although he worked hard in America he was never happy with the situation he was in. But when he came to Japan and met Dino he was convinced to come out as gay. Dino explained that he saw the gay wrestler in Isaacs and felt a little outraged that Isaacs was holding it back. So to help him out he brought him to this bar and asked the owner Mr. Takuya if Isaacs can become accepted as a gay wrestler. Takuya said of course he would, he can even reach high enough to be No. 1! Isaacs said that even though he currently holds a Right To Challenge contract, he knows that everyone is more interested in his “Miracle Ass”. He then showed some examples of what he is talking about by using his ass to cut a banana in half, open a bottle of champagne and cook raw eggs. Dino, Takuya and Amon Tsurumi tasted each of the food and were delighted by the taste! Isaacs said everyone will get to see the Miracle Ass in action before he cashes in his RTC contract.
