Los Ingobernables de Japon (Hiromu Takahashi & Tetsuya Naito) def. Chaos (Will Ospreay & YOSHI-HASHI) by pinfall with a jackknife pin from Naito on Ospreay.

Post-match: YOSHI-HASHI attacks Naito and basically tries to gouge his eyes out!

Chaos (Gedo, Hirooki Goto, & Kazuchika Okada) def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, EVIL, & SANADA) by submission with the cobra clutch from Okada on BUSHI.

Post-match: Okada gets on the mic and calls SANADA out. SANADA heads in to answer him but just throws the mic aside, and Okada doesn’t take kindly to that, attacking Cold Skull and jamming a handful of Rainmaker bucks in his mouth before choking him out with the cobra clutch!

The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson) over Chaos (“Switchblade” Jay White, SHO, & YOH) by pinfall with the leapfrog-assisted Indietaker on YOH.

Post-match: Jay hits Blade Runner on Omega and jaws at him to send a message.

IWGP Intercontinental Title 

Minoru Suzuki over Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) by referee stoppage with a kneebar to win the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.


Night Two

Juice Robinson def. Katsuya Kitamura by pinfall with Pulp Friction

Suzuki-gun (El Desperado, Taichi, TAKA Michinoku, & Yoshinobu Kanemaru) def. Jushin Liger, Ryusuke Taguchi, Shota Umino, & Tiger Mask IV by pinfall with a thrust kick from Taichi on Umino.

Post-match: Suzuki-gun continues beating down the babyfaces and unmasks Tiger Mask, putting his mask on the referee at one point.

Chaos (Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano) def. Bullet Club (Hikuleo & Yujiro Takahashi) by pinfall with a folding press and absolutely no shenanigans, honest, certainly not a low blow of any kind, from Yano on Hikuleo.

Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Chase Owens, Tama Tonga, & Tanga Roa) def. Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Manabu Nakanishi, Togi Makabe, & Tomoyuki Oka by pinfall with a package piledriver from Owens on Oka.

Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki & Takashi Iizuka) def. Michael Elgin & Toa Henare by submission with a kneebar from Suzuki on Henare.

Post-match: With Henare isolated, Suzuki-gun put boots to him, but Togi Makabe makes the save!

Bullet Club (Cody Rhodes, Hangman Page, & Marty Scurll) def. David Finlay, Kota Ibushi, & KUSHIDA by pinfall with Rite of Passage from Page on KUSHIDA.

Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, EVIL, Hiromu Takahashi, SANADA, & Tetsuya Naito) def. Chaos (Gedo, Hirooki Goto, Kazuchika Okada, Will Ospreay, & YOSHI-HASHI) by submission with Skull End from SANADA on Gedo.

Post-match: Young lions and the other Chaos men have to try and hold YOSHI-HASHI from attacking Naito more, but of course the Stardust Genius isn’t bothered by any of it.

Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) def. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) (c) by pinfall with a small package from YOH on Matt to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.

”Switchblade” Jay White over Kenny Omega (c) by pinfall with Blade Runner to win the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship.

Post-match: Hangman Page comes down and interrupts White’s celebration to immediately issue a challenge for the United States Championship, but Kenny yanks the belt from him and presents it to White.

Omega and Page get in each other’s faces and Cody comes down to intensify Bullet Club’s squabble as Switchblade gets out of Dodge. Kenny and Cody shove each other again, and Omega ends up piefacing Matt Jackson to the mat when he tries to keep the peace.

Kenny makes his apologies, but the Bucks leave and Scurll shortly after them, telling Omega and Rhodes to work it out. Kenny slaps hands with Page and has it out with Cody, and they settle on a fistbump themselves…

UNTIL CODY HITS CROSS RHODES ON OMEGA AS HE GOES TO LEAVE THE RING! Marty’s right back to try and talk some sense into the grandson of a plumber, but he’s lost his mind, ranting, and raving, taking Kevin Kelly’s chair from him! Hangman holds Omega in place… KOTA IBUSHI MAKES THE SAVE!

Ibushi extends a hand, but Kenny refuses his assistance, using the ropes to stand himself up. Kota takes matters into his own hands and pulls Omega, his former Tag Team partner in for a hug!
