Yasushi Kanda beat Susumu Yokosuka in 9:28.
Open The Brave Gate Champion Pac beat Naruki Doi in 18 minutes to retain the title. V7 for Pac. Upset in my book, I didn’t think Pac had much of a chance against Doi. This also means Pac has now set the record for most successful defenses in a reign.
Open The Twin Gate Champions Ryo Saito & Genki Horiguchi beat Masato Yoshino & BxB Hulk in 12:06 to retain the titles. Horiguchi pinned Hulk with Backslide From Heaven. V2 for the champs.

Because Kid was the captain, that immediately ends the match. KAMIKAZE wins.
