They both tag out and Yota Tsuji then gets beaten up by Kota and Liger. Shota runs in, attacks Liger and the ref so Tsuji can tag. Shota has a good showing against Kota then tags Tsuji.

  • This is a preview of the Singles match between the tag partners EVIL and SANADA that will be on July 18th, 2019.

Tomohiro Ishii vs Jay White

  • The bell sounds and White rolls out of the ring. Ishii goes after White and Jay gets back in so Ishii grabs Gedo which draws out the Switchblade. Ishii shows he has the strength advantage in this one but White is willing to do anything to get ahead. They beat the hell out of each other for about ten minutes, Jay has the upper hand but starts to take it easy. Jay is verbally abusing Ishii while hitting him, Ishii gets up and starts walking forward into the strikes. Jay halts the efforts of Ishii and hits his Kiwi Crusher for a two. Ishii fights back and hits a big lariat and a powerbomb for a nearfall. Ishii goes for a sliding lariat but Jay moves. Ishii gets the sliding lariat on the second attempt and nearly pins Jay White. Another lariat to the Switchblade and a vertical drop then brainbuster and Tomohiro Ishii wins the match. That was really good and really hard hitting. A stand out from today. Winner: Tomohiro Ishii in 19:13

Tetsuya Naito vs Taichi

  • This starts very slow as both men tease locking up but don’t. After a while they start wrestling and it goes to ringside. At ringside Naito grabs Miho but her hair and Kanemaru steps in. Taichi gets the upper hand when Naito gets back in the ring and pretty much controls most of the match for the next ten minutes. Naito makes a comeback but is cut off everytime. Just before the twelve minute point, Taichi rips his trousers off to reveal his undersized trunks. Taichi teases that someone is coming to use the Iron Glove so Red Shoes dispatches the Young Lions up the ramp. Taichi pulls the glove out himself but is dropkicked in th knee and drops them. Naito hits Gloria but Taichi kicks out. Taichi fights back but Naito hits a low blow and Destino and Taichi kicks out. Taichi uses the Iron glove just after the twenty minute point and on his third attempt. Taichi then hits a Last Ride powerbomb to win. That was a good match but Taichi took too much of the match but we finally saw the Iron glove that has been teased since Iizuka retired on February 21st, 2019. Winner: Taichi in 21:01.
