A Block Match: Bad Luck Fale vs YOSHI-HASHI
-The ring announcer is able to escape this time before Fale is able to attack him.
-Fale tosses Hashi twice into chairs in the crowd, the second time about 15 rows deep. Imagine trying to get the rows back together after that. I’d try to jump rows.
-Hashi finally starts using his quickness to his advantage and dropkicks the leg of Fale and hits a couple neckbreakers.
-Fale hits a splash and goes for the Bad Luck Fall. But Hashi reverses into a sleeper than double knees to the face.
-Hashi applies a guillotine choke as Fale slowly falls, then Hashi rolls up Fale for the win as the announcers freak out.
A Block Match: Zack Sabre Jr. vs Togi Makabe
-Makabe tosses poor Desperado over the railing early on. ZSJ blocks the same attempt and goes to work on Makabe.
-Both men exchange control in the ring. ZSJ goes to the arms during his submission attempts.
-Makabe misses a clothesline and then misses a King Kong Knee. This allows ZSJ to apply a modified ankle lock and Makabe taps out.
WINNER: Zack Sabre Jr.
A Block Match: Tomohiro Ishii vs Yuji Nagata
-Both men exchange chops and kicks early on and basically say fuck you to the pain.
-Ishii headbutts Nagata down in the corner but Nagata keeps getting back up. Ishii taunts Nagata with some playful kicks but gets taken out by a Nagata running knee.
-Ishii hits a suplex then some more kicks to the back and chest. Nagata gets up and gives him a “is that all you got” look then Ishii powerslams him.
-Nagata blocks a lariat clothesline and applies the armbar. Ishii gets to the ropes.
-Nagata lands some stiff right hands then takes Ishii to the top and hits an exploder suplex for two.
-Ishii comes back with a German suplex, Nagata hits a t-bone, Ishii hits a lariat and Nagata hitting a heel kick.
-Ishii connects on a headbutt and lariat but only gets two. Nagata blocks a suplex and hits a brainbuster for two.
-Nagata hits an enziguri but Ishii bounces right off the ropes and hits a sliding lariat. He follows it up with a brainbuster for the win.
WINNER: Tomohiro Ishii
A Block Match: Tetsuya Naito vs Hirooki Goto
-Naito clotheslines Goto off the top to the outside. Goto almost lands on his head.
-Naito tosses Goto into the corner and hits his over the top dropkick.
-Goto surprises Naito with a lariat. They exchange forearms. Naito hits an enziguri but Goto comes right back with a lariat and it is Naito’s turn to almost land on his head.
-Naito hits a neckbreaker then goes for Destino, but Goto counters it into a neckbreaker of his own.
-Naito blocks a GTR and hits a bad looking Destino but only gets two. Naito hits another one for the win. I almost wonder if they added that at the end because the first looked so bad.
WINNER: Tetsuya Naito
A Block Match: Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kota Ibushi
-Tanahashi gets the upper hand early then taunts the crowd a bit because they are in Ibushi’s home town.
