Mohammed Yone celebrates his 44th birthday on 23rd February, and a cake was delivered backstage for him. It's probably good that Naomichi Marufuji With The Sweet Tooth isn't around, as Yone would probably only find half of it. When he came to the ring, fans shouted "Happy Birthday".
Takashi Sugiura was on merchandise, with Daisuke Harada and Kaito Kiyomiya at the Noah's Ark Fanclub.
The Anti Wrestlers Alliance (Akitoshi Saito & Masao Inoue) vs Hitoshi Kumano & Junta Miyawaki
Bumbling Masao Inoue was fooled by Hitoshi Kumano, and ended up lariating Akitoshi Saito. Junta Miyawaki (still taped), tried to attack Saito, but was no sold by him with Saito not minding Miyawaki's attacks anymore than the rainfall outside.
WINNER: Akitoshi Saito with the Sucidees on Junta Miyawaki (11 minutes, 26 seconds)
Dragon Bain vs El Hijo de Canis Lupus
"The best Lucha"
The brothers put on a typical gravity defying high flying match. It was also noted that Dragon Bain has his name written in katakana on his trunks. Another thing that fans always notice, and perhaps more than usual if the brothers are about, the fact that there are no iron railings which mean that they will be flying into the crowd.
WINNER: El Hijo de Canis Lupus with the Canis Moonsault Press (14 minutes, 3 seconds)
The Sugiura Army (Hajime Ohara & NOSAWA vs Kongoh (Haoh & Nioh)
WINNER: Hajime Ohara with rolling pin on Haoh (9 minutes, 9 seconds)
The Sugiura Army (Takashi Sugiura & Kinya Okada) vs Kaito Kiyomiya & Shuhei Taniguchi
It has been noticed that Kaito Kiyomiya has this knack of always being able to look at everyone's camera when photographed on the ringpost during entry.
Takashi Sugiura and Kaito Kiyomiya forgot their partners to attack each other violently in the last pre-match before the title match on Monday 24th, with Kiyomiya doing a sky high dropkick from the top rope.
WINNER: Kaito Kiyomiya with the Stretch Plum Facelock on Kinya Okada (11 minutes, 39 seconds)
STINGER (Yoshinari Ogawa, Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Kotoge) vs RATELS (Daisuke Harada, Tadasuke & YO-HEY)
While Kotaro Suzuki was announced and standing on the middle turnbuckle, in the ring Yoshinari Ogawa and Daisuke Harada were squaring up (Ogawa in sunglasses and jacket), with the ref trying to get between them. Yoshinari Ogawa held up the GHC Junior Heavyweight, and pointed to Daisuke Harada's IPW Junior. Harada wants a title match, then he had better agree to Ogawa's conditions.
WINNER: YO-HEY with the Super Face G on Kotaro Suzuki (17 minutes, 49 seconds)
AXIZ (Go Shiozaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima) & Mohammed Yone vs Kongoh (Kenoh, Masa Kitamiya & Yoshiki Inamura)
Go Shiozaki is looking bruised and swollen, which given the past few days isn't surprising as he's been slapped about by Kazuyuki Fujita, and then kicked by Kenoh, and while Fujita wasn't here today, Kenoh was. The fight went outside the ring with lots of chairs getting knocked over and flattened by them. However, AXIZ were to have their revenge when Kenoh got Katsuhiko Nakajima's "Shutter Chance" rope choke.
Kongoh attacked Shiozaki en masse, he managed to fight them off until the last moment with the save made by Yone. I get the feeling that Kenoh might be the next challenger for the GHC.
WINNER: Go Shiozaki with the Gowan Lariat on Yoshiki Inamura (19 minutes, 29 seconds)
