Injury Report: If you’re thinking what I initially was thinking seeing Yokosuka in 2 matches Sunday and teaming with Mochizuki on one of them, your thinking is correct-he replaced an injured Don Fujii. Left foot suffered Friday and thus missed the weekend events. Out today as well. Right now it doesn’t look like he’ll miss much if any more time (he’s still on upcoming events), but I’ll monitor it.
Here is what looks to be the final 5/5 card (Aichi Prefectural Gym):
Super Shisa & Syachihoko Machine vs. Super Shenlong & Takuya Tomakomai
Naoki Tanisaki & ? (Metal Warrior?) vs. Don Fujii & Kenichiro Arai
Yasushi Kanda vs. Susumu Yokosuka
Open The Brave Gate Champion Pac vs. Naruki Doi for the title
Open The Twin Gate Champions Ryo Saito & Genki Horiguchi vs. Masato Yoshino & BxB Hulk for the titles
Loser Revival Captains Fall Elimination Match: CIMA, Dragon Kid, Gamma & Ricochet vs. Shingo Takagi, Taku Iwasa, Cyber Kong & KAGETORA
Open The Dream Gate Champion Masaaki Mochizuki vs. YAMATO for the title
