Recommended Matches

SANADA vs. Gabe Kidd – I don't think it's a stretch to call Kidd an MVP contender at this point—outstanding performance after outstanding performance, and this match is no exception.Shota Umino vs. Yota Tsuji – This was their first meeting post-excursion, and it did not disappoint. 


Hikuleo defeated Kaito Kiyomiya

This match was all about Kaito working from behind to ground the big man. Kaito slowly worked his way to a finish, but in the end, Hikuleo caught Kaito with a chokeslam to win the match.

This win leaves Hikuleo on the upper end of A Block with 6 points, keeping him alive. 

Great-O-Khan defeated YOSHI-HASHI

With YH's tournament on the rocks, you would expect something more urgent here. Instead, O-Khan just coasted through control until YH launched a late rally. After a few nearfalls, O-Khan dropped YH with an eliminator to eliminate him from this tournament.

O-Khan played spoiler here, moving up to 4 points.

Ren Narita defeated Chase Owens

While not great, this match between two guys who are already virtually eliminated was far from awful. Ren put in a strong performance, eventually forcing Owens to submit with the cobra twist.

This win formally eliminates Owens from playoff contention. 

El Phantasmo defeated Taichi

These guys worked hard throughout this match, splitting the crowd. After extended back-and-forths and false finishes, ELP secured the Gedo clutch.

This win moves ELP to 6 points, but both men are on rocky ground in B block.

SANADA defeated Gabe Kidd

From before the opening bell, Kidd brutalized SANADA using chairs and environmental offense to take the lead. The SANADA rally that followed was one of the best in his title reign. SANADA caught Kidd with a low blow after eating a closed fist, opening up for deadfall and the win.

SANADA's perfect run continues, making him the only man in the tournament with 12 points.

Tanga Loa defeated Will Ospreay

This match didn't play to Ospreay's strengths whatsoever. Both guys got a lot before Loa took the fight to the outside. On the floor, Loa threw Ospreay into the chairs as the referee's count climbed. Before Ospreay could get back in the ring, Loa hit him with a spear and beat the count himself to win the match via countout.

This massive upset leaves Loa with 6 points, keeping himself and a lot of B block in playoff contention. 

Yota Tsuji defeated Shota Umino

This match opened hot before transitioning into a Shota control segment toward the later middle. The closing sequence saw Tsuji fight back in a furious strike exchange before attempting a spear. Umino reversed into a curb stomp but failed to hit the Death Rider; instead, Tsuji freed himself and connected with the spear to win.

This win moves Tsuji to 5 points, keeping himself and a lot of A Block alive in the process. 

Kazuchika Okada defeated KENTA

An underdog KENTA forced Okada to work from behind for the duration of this match. KENTA utilized weapons and wear-down offense to maintain a lead for most of the runtime. Regardless, Okada was able to hit the rainmaker to win the match.

This win makes Okada the only person in B block with 10 points, ensuring his place in the playoffs and eliminating KENTA, YOSHI-HASHI, and Great-O-Khan.
