Winner: Miyahara (14:13) following the Blackout on TAJIRI.
~ TAJIRI stated that he has clearly been relaxed in training outside the ring, since withdrawing from WWE earlier this year, but felt first hand how strong Miyahara is as a competitor. It was an unexpected feeling, but one that he hopes can influence himself to find a new drive in the ring.

Winner: Omori (11:58) following an Exploder on Kitamura.
~ Akiyama and Omori both acknowledged the strength of New Japan’s latest young lions. Though this led to Akiyama saying that he now expects even more from the young talent that is in All Japans, specifically even Yohei Nakajima (as he is should be further ahead than others), as Akiyama stated that they need to make this new era their own.
~ Akiyama also mentioned that he is still in strong favor of mixing the young talent between the “LION’S GATE” and “GROWIN’ UP” shows.

(6) Triple Crown  & World Junior Double Prelude Match : Suwama & Hikaru Sato (Pancrase MISSION) vs. Shuji Ishikawa & Minoru Tanaka (both freelance)
Winner: Suwama (24:15) following a Backdrop on Ishikawa.
~ Suwama with yet another direct win over Ishikawa.
~ Suwama and Hikaru finally looked to have reconciled their differences as of late, as they finally shook hands following today’s match.
~ Suwama expects “Evolution” to take charge and walk out of the next Korakuen Hall with the singles belts in their possession.

About BushidoRX

I have been following Japanese Pro Wrestling for 20 years now and I have also been doing some form of covering it either in news or results for nearly 15 years as well. I got my start in promotions like AJPW, NJPW, FMW and Michinoku Pro. With All Japan being my go to promotion till this very day. Throughout the years I have followed All Japan more closely than any of the others out there, and thus I have taken it upon myself to keep people informed with what is happening all throughout sport in Japan. If it does not appear on the news feed I either do not follow it closely enough to relate the information or it just not my go to promotion in general. Follow Puroresu Spirit, which is my personal site, as I do my best to keep you all informed with what is happening in the land of the rising sun.
