Six-Man Tag Team Match – Jyushin Thunder Liger, Ryusuke Taguchi & ACH vs. SHO, YOH & Rocky Romero
This one starts off with SHO and the living legend, Liger. Liger puts SHO in a surfboard submission as all the men enter the ring. Now it’s Liger’s team having their way with SHO to the crowds’ delight. Taguchi has his back to the ring waiting for SHO to be thrown into his posterior, but reverses it and it’s Liger that got a faceful.
Team Romero tries to get one up on Liger, but the legend takes out both SHO and YOH. ACH comes in, flies over the top with a cross body on Romero to the floor, then takes out YOH with a double stop to the back before executing a German Suplex for a two count.
After Taguchi ate a triple atomic drop, Team Liger takes control and Taguchi hits an inverted power bomb on Romero to get the pin.

Tag Team Match – So Cal Uncensored (Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels) vs. Bullet Club (Chase Owens & Hangman Page)
Page and Kazarian begin this one s the two exchange blows in the center of the ring, running the ropes and cutting each other off with leapfrogs, forearm blows and double close lines. Owens and Daniels both tag in with Owens throwing a couple of kicks and face buster before Daniels hits a neckbreaker out of the corner and tags Kazarian back in.
The Mark Out Moment came when Page, Samoan Drops Kazarian, drop kicks Daniels transitioning into a standing moonsault on the laid out Kazarian.
Double Mark Out Moment is when Daniels catches Page in a reverse headlock and standing head and arm on Owens and finishes off with a bookend neckbreaker combo on the two.
SCU finishes them off with a Best Moonsault ever driving Owens down into Kazarian’s Tombstone Piledriver.

Team Gordon was having their fun with Chuckie T as APW Internet Champion Cobb spashes him in the corner. Beretta his a neckbreaker on Sabin but it’s Cobb who cleans house. Just as Beretta comes in to dive on to the floor, Chuckie T slides in, hug it out and do a double somersault on to the floor taking out all three opponents.
Beretta, Chuckie T and Goto have a way of playing to the crowd and getting everyone excited, even after eating a kick to the face for Beretta and Chuckie T being taken down with a Tornado DDT by Cabin just as he tags out Gordon who goes in and out of the ring like you wouldn’t believe. Luckily, this is a loose breakdown.
There is nothing like watching a big man fly and Cobb is this generation’s Vader as he leaves his feet easier than a Jr. Heavyweight. Goto slips out allowing Beretta and Chuckie T to execute a double vertical suplex, but Cobb answers it back by German suplexing both men before being piledrived by Chuckie T, luckily Sabin and Gordon make the save.
Cobb hits the Tour of the Islands on Chuckie T to get the pin fall victory.

KUSHIDA makes the hot tag, chops Gedo, kicks White off the apron, hits a rolling DDT to guillotine brit transitioning to an arm bar as White makes the save.

IWGP Tag Team Championship – The Young Bucks vs. Guerrillas of Destiny (GOD)
All hell is breaking loose as this back-and-forth match has had headbutts, superkicks and power moves like you’d expect from The Young Bucks.
I used to think of The Young Bucks as nothing but spot monkey marks, but these brothers have proved themselves over the last decade and earned my respect.
GOD are some of the baddest dudes in the Bullet Club and this is a match only your eyes will believe as it airs next week on AXS TV.
GOD hits a 3-D for to earn the titles.
Your winners and NEW IWGP Tag Team Champions, Guerrillas of Destiny!
IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship – Juice Robinson (C) vs. Cody
The American Nightmare and The Flamboyant one know joe to entertain the audience. A traditional wrestling match that built tension like most classic NWA title matches of the mid-80s could only do.
Cody tries to get the drop on Juice, but gets caught jumping off the top rope into a belly to belly suplex. Brandi fakes an attack and as the referee reprimands Juice, Cody hits him from behind.
Unbelievable! Cody rolls up Juice!
Your winner and NEW U.S. Heavyweight Champion, Cody!
Special Tag Team Match – Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii vs. Golden Lovers
This place is on fire! An audience of 2,000 people sounds like 30,000 as Okada and Ibushi lock up.
Omega and Ishii fight on the outside while Okada and Ibushi do battle on the inside.
Just when you think you’re going to get Omega and Okada in the ring, Ibushi hits a missle drop kick to clear the ring. Luckily, just a few moments later the Golden Lovers hit back-to-back moonsaults on Okada.
The Pyramid erupts in cheers as Okada and Omega stand toe-to-toe in the center of the ring. As JR would say, this one is a barn burner.
What’s better than a slap fight between Ishii and Ibushi? Nothing, that’s what!
A double knee blast to Ishii and the pin.
Your winners, the Golden Lovers!
