Douki ,Yoshinobu Kanemaru and El Desperado vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Master Wato, Yuya Uemura

Result: El Desperado pins Yuya Yuemura

Master Wato, who made his debut on the main roster at the NJ Cup Final. Following his return from a two-year excursion in CMLL last night with a quick and decisive victory over Douki in singles competition seemed to be the focus of Suzuki Gunn’s ire throughout the course of the match as they focused much of their efforts on punishing the Young Master.

Following the match, the members of Suzuki Gunn took their time punishing both Master Wato and Hiroyoshi Tenzan for daring to face off against them. Even in defeat Master Wato seems to have nothing but upside within the company leaving the ringside by side with the veteran Tenzan. It will be interesting to watch his vendetta against Suzuki Gunn continue.

Grade: C

The fourth match of the night saw one of the two men who competed in the New Japan Cup final Kazuchika Okada face off against the new stablemates of the winner of the NJPW Cup as he and Hirooki Goto took on The Bone Soldier Taji Ishimori and Yujiro Takahashi of Bullet Club.

Taiji Ishimori & Yujiro Takahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada & Hirooki Goto

Result: Yujiro Takahashi pins Hirooki Goto

Okada seems physically incapable of having a bad match. Even in a losing effort he put together some incredible in-ring moments with the Bone Soldier Taji and lent his name to the massive wave of momentum that Bullet Club is currently riding. I want Okada and Ishimori to fight forever.

Grade: B-
