Toshiaki Kawada beat ZERO1 World Heavyweight Champion Masato Tanaka in 14:20 to win the title. Kawada becomes the 6th ZERO1 World Heavyweight Champion.

Show notes:
Namiguchi retires just short of what would’ve been 6 years in wrestling, leaving at age 29. He won 3 titles in his career: NWA Intercontinental Tag Team, WDB Tag Team and WWA World Jr. Lightweight.
Kawada’s title win gives him his first singles title since February 2005, when he lost the All-Japan Triple Crown.
This is the second time in 2 career singles matches Kawada has beaten Tanaka. The first time was December 2001.
Kawada asked ZERO1 to find a suitable challenger for his next match, which President Shinjiro Otani swore to do.
Kenta Kakinuma, who debuted today, is a 22-year-old rookie out of Saitama. Weighing in at 198 pounds/90 kg, he likely will compete in the Junior Heavyweight division.
