~ 1st successful title defense.
~ Yuko Miyamoto stepped forward to challenge the champion.
~ After the match, Kiyomiya was not satisfied with the loss after regaining consciousness as he still tried to got aggressive with Kenoh and Takashi sugiura. This led to Kenoh and Sugiura turning on Kiyomiya and keeping the young talent down for the count. The NOAH roster would make the save for Kiyomiya as Go Shiozaki specifically came out and helped get Kiyomiya out of the arena. Though Kiyomiya was adamant about trying to get back into the ring and finish what was started.
[Update: A quick bit from NOAH hinted that Kiyomiya and Shiozaki may form a partnership in the future, and Kiyomiya is clearly done with his former group with Sugiura and Kenoh. Which should see a change in the event cards as Kiyomiya was scheduled to compete with along with Kenoh and Sugiura on the tour.]
~ Kenoh vs. Miyamoto and 50 Funky Powers vs. Maybach & Nagai has been officially set for the 2/2 show at Korakuen.
