♦Winner: Fujinami (13:09) with a Dragon Sleeper on AKIRA.
~ Following the match, Antonio Inoki, Akira Maeda and Kengo Kimura also came into the ring to honor Fujinami’s career achievement.
~ Also after the match, reportedly Vader passed out for a moment, notably he took a big drop during the match, he was helped at ringside by AKIRA and others as he regained consciousness. He left the hall before Fujinami closed out the show with a speech. Though it is worth noting that Vader walked out on his own two feet, so may not be too severe.
(Not too sure on what the situation may be at this time. Though we will see once more details arise. Or if just continues the rest of the tour as normal.)
~ Fujinami thanked everyone for coming out and helping him celebrate these last 45 years in the ring.
