– TNA taped their One Night Only: Outbreak PPV earlier today in Tokyo, Japan, featuring:
*Bad Influence defeated Minoru Tanaka & Koji Kanemoto.
*Gail Kim pinned Madison Rayne.
*Yoshihiro Takayama vs. Abyss had no decisive winner. Abyss laid thumbtacks on the ramp and chokeslammed Takayama on thumbtacks outside on the entrance ramp and neither man returned in time to beat the referee’s count.
*Masakatsu Funaki defeated Bobby Roode and issued a challenge to Kurt Angle. Wrestle-1 originally wanted to book Angle vs. Funaki for this show.
*Keiji Mutoh & Rob Terry & Taiyo Kea defeated Samoa Joe & Masayuki Kono & Rene Dupree when Joe abandoned his partners.
*The Bromans defeated The Wolves and Kaz Hayashi and Shuji Kondo to capture the TNA Tag Team championship.
*Seiya Sanada defeated Austin Aries to win the TNA X-Division championship.
*TNA champion Magnus pinned KAI.
The plan is to return for a second PPV taping on 7/6. TNA is in the middle of a huge partnership with the top japan wrestling promotion over there. It is good business for them and hopefully it can make them grow.
– Ricochet captured Dragon Gate Open the Dream Gate championship, defeating Masato Yoshino. Becoming the first ever foreign talent to do so.
Ricochet is scheduled to challenge DGUSA Open the Freedom Gate champion Johnny Gargano over Wrestlemania weekend in New Orleans. There is talk that match may become a title vs. title match, but that’s not 100% the direction yet.
