Before the first match, PHOENIX officials announced the Style Battle Tag League! It will be a 10-team block tournament. Teams will be separated in two blocks of five, with the winners of both blocks facing off for the tournament's prize. It will take place during March.

Due to a serious injury, Fuminori Abe had to be replaced. Yuya Aoki took his spot. Due to Abe's injury, his lightweight opening tournament semifinal match againt Shinya Aoki will be canceled and Aoki moves on to the final.

1) Kota Umeda & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Ikuto Hidaka & Yuya Aoki (6:39) Grade: 53

Umeda defeated Aoki by knockout.

5) Middleweight Semifinal: Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. Shotaro Ashino (19:03) Grade: 67

Nakajima defeated Ashino by knockout.

6) Minoru Suzuki drew with Shinya Aoki (10:00) Grade: 49

7) PHOENIX Heavyweight Title (vacant): Hideki Suzuki vs. Timothy Thatcher (13:40) Grade: 57

It was a battle of suplexes, which had both fighters exhausted and hurt. Thatcher unleashed a series of vicious headbutts which knocked down Suzuki but the latter was able to regain his senses, get an ankle pick and transition into a submission to win the title.

Four more teams have been announced for the tag league:

1) Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi
2) Katsuhiko Nakajima & Masa Kitamiya
3) Masashi Takeda & Yuya Aoki
4) Mike Bailey & Chris Ridgeway

The remaining two teams will qualify via two matches in the next Korakuen Hall show.

A preview

PHOENIX Firebird 2: Nakajima vs. Takeda
Korakuen Hall
February 23rd 2019

1) Chris Ridgeway vs. Yuya Aoki

Chris Ridgeway from Great Britain will be making his debut here, before taking part in the tag league. On the other side is Yuya Aoki from BJW, one of the most promising prospects in Japan.

2) Tag League Qualification: Kazushi Sakuraba & Daisuke Nakamura vs. Ryota Nakatsu & Kota Umeda

Sakuraba hasn't had the best record in PHOENIX so far, but he'll try to qualify to the Tag League with grappling prodigy Nakamura. Against them will be Nakatsu and Umeda, two youngsters looking to upset the promotion's owner.

3) Tag League Qualification: Ikuto Hidaka & Takuya Nomura vs. Dom Garrini & Tom Lawlor

Hidaka and Nomura were both tag team partners of Fuminori Abe. They'll be joining forces to try and make it to the tag league. Lawlor and Garrini also haven't had the best results so far, but they'll be looking to change that by qualifying to PHOENIX's first tournament.

4) Elimination Rules: Suwama, Kazusada Higuchi, Manabu Soya, Masa Kitamiya & Kazuhiro Tamura vs. Masakatsu Funaki, Yukio Sakaguchi, Timothy Thatcher, Mitsuya Nagai & Atsushi Aoki

In the style of Quintet, this is a 5v5 elimination rules match. However, it will be held under pro wrestling rules and with wrestlers like Higuchi, Thatcher and Suwama in it, it'll probably have more lariats and suplexes than slick submissions.

5) Hideki Suzuki & HARASHIMA vs. Minoru Suzuki & Hikaru Sato

Minoru Suzuki continues his feud against Hideki Suzuki. This will be a preview of the Tag League as well, with Minoru Suzuki teaming with Sato for the first time in years. Shinya Aoki is competing for the singles lightweight title, so HARASHIMA, the ace of DDT, is teaming with Hideki instead.

6) PHOENIX Lightweight Title (vacant): Shinya Aoki vs. Mike Bailey

Bailey has lost to Aoki in the past due to a quick submission, he'll have to be more careful to overcome the MMA legend and claim one of PHOENIX's three titles.

7) PHOENIX Middleweight Title (vacant): Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. Masashi Takeda

The deathmatch champion Takeda upset a legend and the favorite to win the title, Masakatsu Funaki, to earn his place in this match. He proved to be a well-rounded wrestler and even tapped out Funaki. Nakajima was a young prodigy and has been considered the best striker in pro wrestling since he was a teenager. But will his skill be enough to overcome Takeda's unpredictable style?

Predictions welcome!

Suwama defeated Funaki by knockout.

5) Minoru Suzuki & Hikaru Sato defeated Hideki Suzuki & HARASHIMA (19:16) Grade: 66

Suzuki defeated HARASHIMA by knockout.

Hideki Suzuki was forced to use two of his rope breaks. One by Sato, who dropped into an imanari roll and almost locked in a leglock just seconds into the amtch and the other time by Minoru Suzuki, who applied the saka otoshi and almost got the rear-naked choke. Hideki had the smaller Sato in trouble several times, with a series of suplexes and strikes. But before he could hit the finishing blow, Suzuki rushed into the ring and threw him out. HARASHIMA ran into the ring as well but Suzuki quickly applied the Gotch piledriver, which knocked the DDT ace out.



6) PHOENIX Lightweight Title (vacant): Shinya Aoki defeated Mike Bailey (10:35) Grade: 50

Aoki defeated Bailey with a triangle choke.

Bailey dominated the match, he was able to keep Aoki at bay until Aoki went for a flying armbar. Bailey postured up but was choked out with a triangle. Aoki showed great heart and tried to knock Bailey out with punches, until he went for the flying submission. Aoki wins the lightweight title!



7) PHOENIX Middleweight Title (vacant): Katsuhiko Nakajima defeated Masashi Takeda (18:13) Grade: 63

Nakajima defeated Takeda by knockout.

Takeda quickly took the fight outside, but Nakajima was no stranger to ringside brawling. Chairs were thrown and heavy strikes were traded. Nakajima and Takeda crawled into the ring bleeding, Takeda tried to target Nakajima's legs and get a leglock. Nakajima had to use one of his rope breaks to escape and seemed to be unable to use his left leg afterwards. Takeda failed two quick takedowns after the fight was restarted post-rope break, he feinted a kick and shot in a third time, but he got knocked out by a right high kick. Nakajima wins the middleweight title!

Just read through this. Really enjoy unique takes on Real World guys. And I really enjoy what you are doing here. Unique concept and presentation, definitely a big fan of it.

I know the American indies pretty well, but outside of NJPW I'm still learning the Japanese scene so these predictions are a bit of a crapshoot, but hey! I'll learn through this diary.

STYLE BATTLE TAG LEAGUE DAY 2

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed reading through the thread.

I don't keep up with the American indies outside the occasional match but Garrini is one of my favourites, I'm a mark for flying submissions. He was actually one of the guys I added to the database.
