At the venue, Monocreate returned with their stall. It is hoped that they may come to some of the other venues in the country too, as they have a good franchise going in selling snack food, especially for venues in regions like today when getting to the venue is difficult. Despite the difficulties in getting there in winter weather (if you don't drive it's a twenty minute walk from the station), one fan said that this was the first time in ten years that they had seen Noah live. It looks like everywhere, Noah are attracting old fans back.
I am afraid that this is going to be another one of those times when I don't have too much to report on about what happened at the event, but I am lucky that I have been able to present something on this tour, rather than nothing.
Masa Kitamiya vs Kinya Okada
WINNER: Masa Kitamiya with the Boston Crab (8 minutes, 32 seconds)
50 Funky Powers (Mohammed Yone & Quiet Storm) vs Akitoshi Saito & Junta Miyawaki
Yone threw some particularly vicious chops today apparently, which were described as "resounding" throughout the venue
WINNER: Quiet Storm with the 50cm lariat on Junta Miyawaki (10 minutes, 43 seconds)
Minoru Tanaka & Dragon Bain vs Hi69 & El Hijo de Canis Lupus
WINNER: Dragon Bane with the 630 Bane
The Sugiura Army (Takashi Sugiura & Hajime Ohara) vs Kenoh & Yoshiki Inamura
WINNER: Takashi Sugiura with the Olympic Slam on Yoshiki Inamura
After the match, Masa Kitamiya (who had been seconding Kongoh) got into the ring and faced Takashi Sugiura. Sugiura (looking boss with his gum shield clenched in his mouth like a cigar), faced him down and held up the belt. Later Sugiura wrote on Twitter that "Kitamiya-kun" was weak, and he couldn't even rise to the GHC National pre-matches, and that he wanted to see something more out of him than just a "scary face".
Kaito Kiyomiya, Shuhei Taniguchi & Masao Inoue vs Kumazix (Katsuhiko Nakajima, Go Shiozaki & Hitoshi Kumano)
WINNER: Go Shiozaki with the Short Range Go Lariat on Masao Inoue (18 minutes, 27 second)
Naomichi Marufuji & STINGER (Yoshinari Ogawa, Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Kotoge) vs RATELS (HAYATA, Daisuke Harada, Tadasuke & YO-HEY)
I don't think I need to tell you how this went down, as HAYATA got it from Yoshinari Ogawa (who apparently made him scream, when he had him in a submission outside the ring), and also from Naomichi Marufuji, who decided to turn a few of the screws himself.
WINNER: Atsushi Kotoge with the Killswitch on Tadasuke (26 minutes, 33 seconds)
ATTENDANCE: Not stated
