Fukuoka Kokusai Center, Fukuoka

Preshow: Oleg Boltin, Takeshi Yamguchi & Hiroyoshi Tenzan def. Satoshi Kojima, Ryusuke Taguchi & Tetsuhiro Yagi

David Finlay Jr, Toa Henare, Shotaro Ashino & Ren Narita defeated YOSHI-HASHI, Toru Yano, Gedo & Jado in 5:30 when Ashino used an Ankle Lock on Gedo 66 C+

BUSHI & Hiromu Takahashi defeated Kenny Omega in 9:19 when BUSHI used MX on Chase 74 B-

KUSHIDA, Juice Robinson & Togi Makabe defeated WALTER, Kaito Kiyomiya & Shota Umino in 8:58 when KUSHIDA used a Kimura Lock on Umino 87 B+

During the match KUSHIDA had WALTER on the verge of tapping out until Umino broke up the submission while Kaito distracted the referee. Post-match KUSHIDA taunted WALTER telling him he was close to forcing the IWGP US Champ to quit.

Kento Miyahara, Daichi Hashimoto, Jake Lee & Naoya Nomura defeated Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, SHO & YOH in 13:27 when Kento used a Shutdown German Suplex Hold on YOH 75 B-

Shinsuke Nakamura came to the ring in a managerial role in support of his Chaos stablemates in normal clothes. After the final ring bell as the referee held up Kento's hand he snuck in the ring and delivered a Bomaye to the back of the neck of Miyahara laying him out.

Hiroshi Tanahashi & Zack Sabre Jr defeated KENTA & Naomichi Marufuji & the Young Bucks in 15:49 when Sabre Jr used a rollup with a handful of tights on Matt Jackson 86 B+

The finish of the match started when the Bucks hit a Meltzer Driver on KENTA and seemingly only had to make the pinfall for the victory until Zack Sabre Jr took Matt Jackson by surprise with a quick rollup to take the victory.

As Sabre Jr & Tanahashi scurried out the ring and up the entrance ramp, the Bucks took their frustration out on KENTA & Marufuji dealing out multiple superkicks to both men.

Katsuya Kitamura & Tomoyuki Oka defeated Tetsuya Naito & SANADA in 18:59 when Oka used a Wrist Clutch Exploder on SANADA 90 A

After the match Jay was joined in the ring by his stablemates as he proclaimed that he's the best wrestler in the world and he'll take on anyone at any time.

It was at this point that Naito strolled down the entrance ramp. Naito told Jay to tranquillo telling him he's getting too cocky and excited too soon and that he'll take that belt back very soon. Jay said he's ready to embarass him again and told him he'd put his belt on the line against him at Dominion but only if Los Ingobernables disbands when Naito loses. Naito said he'd consider the offer and he left to the back.

Show Rating: 89 A
