5. Maji Manji Two Serious Big Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Ethan Page with the German Suplex (13:48).
6. Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie when Dieno pinned Sasaki with the Danshoku Driver (14:12).
Daisuke Sasaki continued his training to resist Danshoku Dieno’s moveset but he doesn’t have enough endurance to make it effective. Instead Sasaki found a cardboard cutout of Dieno and destroyed it with a chair to make Dieno upset. Dieno later wore Sasaki down with the Lip Lock and was able to pin his Sumo Hall opponent with the Danshoku Driver. After the match Makoto Oishi brought in a cardboard frame and Dieno lewdly posed with Sasaki in it. Dieno told Sasaki he will irritate him more until “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018”.
Ethan Page’s current unbeaten run is brought to an end by Konosuke Takehsita. At one point the two fought their way up to the commentary table and Takeshita accidentally hit Sanshiro Takagi with a Big Boot. Back in the ring the Big Boot found its proper target and that led to Takeshita hitting the German Suplex to win. Takeshita asked Page for a rematch but this time in Page’s home ring. Page is welcome to the idea and wants it to happen in either Canada or America. Takeshita is now going to focus on his next big match, the one against CIMA.
A fight broke out between HARASHIMA and Keisuke Okuda after Match #4. Moments after Kazuki Hirata won the match, Okuda gave him a High Kick unprovoked. HARASHIMA jumped at Okuda and the two had to be separated. Tetsuya Koda said he was going to strike while the iron is hot and he booked a match between HARASHIMA and Okuda for the 10th October episode of Maji Manji.
Masahiro Takanashi wanted to wrestle a clean match with Jun Kasai. That led to some awkward moments when Kasai attacked him with a chair because to Kasai that is not cheating. Kasai then called out to a fan who regularly attends these shows so he can use their bag as a weapon. However the fan was nowhere to be seen. Takanashi snuck in a Low Blow and then called Sayaka Obihiro in the audience to hand her bag over to him. A miscommunication between them and the bad allowed Kasai to take back control. He missed the Pearl Harbor Splash but countered an Oklahoma Roll to pin Takanashi for the three count.
Azusa Takigawa used her time in her match to promote her photobook “Last News” coming out on 8th October.
Yuki Iino wins his first match as part of ALL OUT, hitting the Football Spear on Nobuhiro Shimatani. Backstage Shunma Katsumata called Iino ALL OUT’s secret weapon. Akito joked that he never knew Iino had such a powerful finisher in him. Iino said he will use this momentum to crush STRONG HEARTS at Sumo Hall.
It’s still unsure what Mizuki Watase & Jason Kincaid will do in the future without RENEGADES but as a team they still work well together.
Gota Ihashi missed a Moonsault. Makoto Oishi did better and hit a Lionsault before submitting Ihashi with a Feather Hold.
There was an Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title change shown during the episode. The champion Akari Suda was attacked and pinned by her fellow SKE48 member Kaori Matsumura. Or at least she was a member of the group before she graduated a few weeks ago.
