Volador Jr & Soberano Jr vs BUSHI & Shingo Takagi

  • Shingo and BUSHI are joined by Tetsuya Naito in his white suit and they bump fists before the match. BUSHI starts the match with Soberano.

With BUSHI and Shingo on the floor, Soberano and Volador both hit dives. Volador and BUSHI get back in the ring at a count of nineteen, and Volador tags Soberano. Shingo calls for BUSHI and they hit Soberano with a double team move that was a spinebuster from Shingo with a lung blower from BUSHI, but Soberano kicked out.
