~ As they weren't teaming together, both Shoichi Uchida and Ray Paloma kept their pants on. However, while this was true of Uchida, Ray stood up from his chair, which was near Referee Yoshino and let's just say, parts of the back of the pants were down.

~ According to YASSHI, the Dove tag belts are made from beer cans. He took the black belt, which is made from
