Tadasuke vs Junta Miyawaki vs Masao Inoue
Usual clowning from Masao Inoue, he was upside down on the turnbuckle while Tadasuke got the win with the lariat on Junta Miyawaki who is yet to get his first win.
50 Funky Powers (Mohammed Yone & Quiet Storm) vs Maybach Taniguchi and Cody Hall.
Cody Hall has recently joined the faction of Mitsuya Nagai and Maybach Taniguchi. Although all three are heavyweights, none are interested in taking part in the generational war which is going on in the heavyweight division, although it would not surprise me if Taniguchi ditched them to side with either the veterans or the "Super Generation Army".
There was no defection today, but it seems that the tag with Cody has gone very well. I think there were plans to do this earlier, but "Global Tag League" got in the way of this with Cody teaming with KAZMA SAKAMOTO.
Winner: Maybach Taniguchi with the Zwei Bomb on Quiet Storm.
Atsushi Kotoge & Kaito Kiyomiya vs YO-HEY & HAYATA
Mixed weight match here, with YO-HEY being the only junior heavyweight, and HAYATA crossing both weights. YO-HEY & HAYATA are also not part of the generational struggle going on.
Kotoge's top turnbuckle dive with his cloak on is called "The Revolution Bomber"
At the start of the match, YO-HEY stole Kotoge's cloak when he handed it to Kaito Kiyomiya and put it on. The cloak was later retrieved and put back safely on the turnbuckle in the corner of Kaito Kiyomiya and Atsushi Kotoge. To my knowledge HAYATA did not ask to wear the cloak, and I think YO-HEY knows better than to offer it to him.
While Kaito Kiyomiya did the Tiger Suplex on YO-HEY, Atsushi Kotoge forced HAYATA to stand doing the "Revolution" pose in the corner. After the match Kotoge sulked as Kiyomiya refused to put the cloak on.
Winner: Kaito Kiyomiya with the Tiger Suplex on YO-HEY
Hi69 & Minoru Tanaka & Yoshinari Ogawa vs Hajime Ohara vs Ikuto Hidaka vs Takuya Sugawara
Hajime Ohara teams with old friends Ikuto Hidaka & Takuya Sugawara from Zero-One. They will compete against each other in Jnr Tag League which is coming up in July.
Minoru Tanaka called Sugawara "overweight".
Not too much to say about this match, except it was said to be fun.
AFTER the match however, Hajime Ohara announced that he was teaming with Ikuto Hidaka & Takuya Sugawara (plus Hitoshi Kumano), which now means that the junior division has split into three camps.
Winner: Ikuto Hideki with the win over Hi69
Daisuke Harada vs Hitoshi Kumano
Kumano asked Harada for a title challenge (Daisuke Harada is the GHC Junior Heavyweight champion) and Harada dismissed his challenge saying that for Ohara (Kumano's tag partner) to challenge him was one thing, but Kumano is way out of his league and had never beaten him in a singles match.
Kumano said that he had beaten every one of RATELS, except for Harada, and would beat him too. Harada accepted his challenge but warned about today's match that he was going to "put a stop to this nonsense once and for all".
The match took six minuets and Hitoshi Kumano defeated him with the Argentine Backbreaker. After the match as Harada rolled out of the ring, Kumano got on the microphone and basically told him "don't be a chicken".
Winner: Hitoshi Kumano with The Argentine Backbreaker.
In six minutes, five seconds.
Takashi Sugiura & Naomichi Marufuji & Akitoshi Saito & Shiro Koshinaka vs Kenoh vs Katsuhiko Nakajima vs Masa Kitamiya vs Go Shiozaki
A championship pre-match between Kenoh and Takashi Sugiura, Kenoh has vowed that he will make today count as Yokohama is where "my belt was stolen from me." At the start when the two teams were in the ring, Sugiura provoked Kenoh with the GHC Heavyweight belt.
Kaito Kiyomiya seconded the "Super Generation Army" today. It is rare to see him do this as he doesn't do this anymore.
Go Shiozaki has said that all that matters today is winning, especially over Shiro Koshinaka. Katsuhiko Nakajima says that HE will be the one who wins today.
In the end neither of them got the win, it was Akitoshi Saito over Masa Kitamiya, which will probably increase the squabbling in the Super Generation Army.
"Thank you for coming today! Era? We will never surrender! The more intense it gets, the more intense we will fight! Please support us!" ~ Akitoshi Saito addressing the crowd after the match.
Winner: Akitoshi Saito over Masa Kitamiya
