Not a very comprehensive recap of today's show I am afraid, this is due to the fact that not many people reported on what was happening, however there are a few gems from today.
Noah also had a dismal attendance at 176 people; but, two things should be taken into account about this. The first being that on the morning of 18th June an earthquake struck the Kansai region with the tremors affecting Osaka and Kyoto. Fortunately there was no tsunami warning, but there were some fatalities including tragically a child. NHK has also warned that four more aftershocks will be expected for a week.
Although Sendai is not in the Kansai region, if there is a natural disaster (no matter how minor), people don't really want to risk travel. Noah also never do well when they hold shows either early week or mid-week. So please be kind to Noah when taking into account the attendance today.
Maybach Taniguchi vs Masao Inoue vs Tsuchiyoshi Kikuchi.
Match went 6 minutes, 25 seconds before Maybach Taniguchi wiped out the two bumbling old vets.
WINNER: Maybach Taniguchi with the Zwei Bomb on Masao Inoue
Go Shiozaki vs Cody Hall
WINNER: Go Shiozaki with the Lariat (8 minutes and 19 seconds)
Hi69, Minoru Tanaka & Yoshinari Ogawa vs YO-HEY, HAYATA & Junta Miyawaki.
Young Junta Miyawaki found himself moving up the card to the third match (he normally works the opener being a rookie). HAYATA (who has a very low pain threshold) got tortured by the opponents, but it was Hi69 who got the pin on Junta Miyawaki.
WINNER: Hi69 with the Trans Rave on Junta Miyawaki (14 minutes, 39 seconds)
Daisuke Harada & Tadasuke vs Hajime Ohara & Hitoshi Kumano
Hitoshi Kumano caught Tadasuke in the Argentine Backbreaker, all of RATELS have now tapped out to this, and Tadasuke was no exception.
Daisuke Harada after that put on his shark smells blood face.
WINNER: Hitoshi Kumano with the Argentine Backbreaker (15 minutes, 39 seconds)
The Aggression (Katsuhiko Nakajima vs Masa Kitamiya) vs Naomichi Marufuji vs Akitoshi Saito
Masa Kitamiya defeated Akitoshi Saito with the Side Suplex after fourteen minutes, thirty-nine seconds. Afterwards, Katsuhiko Nakajima held the belt and gloated at Naomichi Marufuji from the turnbuckle. It is suspected that either Naomichi Marufuji and Akitoshi Saito will challenge, or The Bullet Yankees (Takashi Sugiura & Masato Tanaka) will.
Takashi Sugiura, Mohammed Yone & Quiet Storm vs Kenoh, Atsushi Kotoge and Kaito Kiyomiya.
Pre-match for the GHC Heavyweight Championship. Kenoh (who somehow managed to get along with Kaito Kiyomiya and Atsushi Kotoge) got on the microphone after he and Takashi Sugiura who had gone to war, (and he had gotten the win by the diving footstomp on Quiet Storm), and told him that he was going to "take back the belt you stole from me on the 26th June at Korakuen Hall", he also told Sugiura that he knew his weakness.
WINNER: Kenoh with the diving footstomp on Quiet Storm (19 minutes, 5 seconds).
