"Hey! Everybody! Remember this when you leave!
The four of us are The Hooligans!
(crowd boos loudly)
Shut up and listen!"
(to an old lady in the crowd)
"Old bag! If you have a problem, we will use our power to shut you up!
From now on, Noah, we will whip you!"
(Mitsuya Nagai after the main event)
The venue today is beautiful, its light and airy with a glass ceiling (its a skating rink set in a sports complex in real life).
A fan event will be held after the show (Atsushi Kotoge has got the cape out)
I am afraid I don't really have too much information coming out of today's show (bar the semi main and the main event), so I have summarized below match results and what I have.

- Atsushi Kotoge did not wear his cloak during the match today, although the pink and yellow was out in force and tearing round the arena in it
- RATELS came out to sign autographs during the break, Katsuhiko Nakajima signed autographs at the merchandise booth
- Hajime Ohara still suffering quite a bit with his neck and shoulder problems
- RATELS posing for their victory (all raised their fists) in front of their enemies, Special4.
- Naturally exciting exchange of kicks between Kenoh and Nakajima
SEMI FINAL AND FINAL
KAZMA and Nagai came out to second Cody Hall in his match against Akitoshi Saito, Nagai caused a distraction by standing on the apron which enabled Cody to get the win.
The Hooligans all came out for Marufuji's match against Maybach Taniguchi. Assist from Nagai to win (he pulled referee out of the ring after the Shiranui), while the ref was arguing with him, Cody Hall crept into the ring to assist Taniguchi.
Afterwards Maybach stood with foot on fallen Marufuji as the other Hooligans gathered round. Marufuji said that he's angry now, and he's had enough...
Nagai (after yelling at a woman and calling her an "old bag"), said he was loving the boos from the audience
