Oh well it’s back to normal for Makoto Oishi. After yesterday’s success he was back losing to Tetsuya Endo today. The two confronted each other after the match. Oishi Headbutted Endo but Endo hit back with a Lariat forcing Oishi to roll out of the ring. With a week to go before their KO-D Openweight Title match Endo said he will go back to New York to replenish his condition and come back to Japan feeling reborn.
Times have changed but Man will continue to fight. That was the message behind the 5 Vs 5 Generation Elimination match. At the start of the show the two teams faced off in the ring but it turned into a brawl with Super Sasadango Machine getting unmasked in the process. For the match itself most of the eliminations were caused by Ring Outs including the finish where Masahiro Takanashi and Mizuki Watase knocked each other off the apron to the floor. Neither team wanted a draw so they agreed to a final match to decide the winner. Sasadango stepped up for his team because he suffered next to no damage in the match. Watase represented his side so he could get another chance to win. Sasadango hit the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock but couldn’t put Watase away. He got so worked up that he unmasked himself and became Muscle Sakai! Watase resisted Sakai’s trademark moves and pinned him with a School Boy to win the match for the younger generation!
The power of Yoshihiko was eventually used against Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata. It survived being punted by The Moonlight Express to give them a Double Hurricanrana but Asuka then threw Yoshihiko at Hirata and it gave him the Reincarnation out of instinct. Asuka then pinned Hirata with the Moonsault. After the sponsored prizes were given to the winners, Hirata attacked Yoshihiko along with its handler Danshoku Dieno. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hirata thought all was fine and dandy until Dieno attacked him and pinned him with the Danshoku Driver to become the new champion.
Mad Paulie is out of heat and has turned back to normal.
