NJPW Sakura Genesis 2018 Results: Bullet Club Civil War Continues

Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) def. Bullet Club (Chase Owens & Yujiro Takahashi) by submission with a Sharpshooter from Matt on Owens.

Post-Match: The Bucks offer handshakes, and Chase & Yujiro accept them.

Chaos (Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano) def. Suzuki-gun (Taichi & Takashi Iizuka) by pinfall with a low blow and a lariat-assisted schoolboy pin from Yano on Iizuka.

Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, & Tanga Loa) (c) def. Taguchi Japan (Michael Elgin, Ryusuke Taguchi, & Togi Makabe) by pinfall with Gun Stun from Tonga on Taguchi to retain the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship.

David Finlay, Hiroshi Tanahashi, & Juice Robinson def. Chaos (Hirooki Goto, “Switchblade” Jay White, & YOSHI-HASHI) by pinfall with High Fly Flow from Tanahashi on YOSHI-HASHI.

Suzuki-gun (Davey Boy Smith, Jr., Lance Archer, & Minoru Suzuki) def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (EVIL, SANADA, & Tetsuya Naito) by pinfall with Killer Bomb from Killer Elite Squad on EVIL.

Post-Match: Naito cuts a post-match promo telling Suzuki that he doesn’t think the Intercontinental Championship is worth anything, but if he wants a fight, all he has to do is step up and ask. Suzuki fires back that Tetsuya is “a piece of shit” and claims that he is the king of pro wrestling. Naito proceeds to say that maybe he’s pissed Minoru off enough for one night and drops the catchphrase, which just makes Suzuki angry enough to throw furniture, as it turns out.

Suzuki-gun (El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru) (c) def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI & Hiromu Takahashi) and Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) by pinfall with Pinche Loco from Desperado on YOH to retain the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.

Will Ospreay (c) def. Marty Scurll by pinfall with the OsCutter to retain the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship in a MOTY candidate where Ospreay just about killed himself taking an apron bump where he twisted his neck at a sickening angle.

Post-Match: A bloodied Ospreay calls KUSHIDA out, saying he’s beaten Hiromu and Marty and to prove to everyone that his victory over KUSHIDA wasn’t a fluke, he wants the match one more time. KUSHIDA accepts with a thumbs up and we’re on!

Bullet Club (Cody Rhodes & Hangman Page) def. Golden Lovers (Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi) by pinfall with a schoolboy pin and a handful of tights from Rhodes on Ibushi.

Post-Match: Cody and Hangman beat Kota down while Omega reaches desperately to help his partner. Kenny manages to find a second wind in time to save Ibushi from being attacked with a chair!

Kazuchika Okada (c) def. Zack Sabre, Jr. by pinfall with the Rainmaker to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

Post-Match: Okada and Gedo issue their usual show-closing comments, asking who could possibly be next, and Tanahashi comes out to lay his claim to the next title shot.
