9/11 - New Japan Pro Wrestling at Tokyo's Korakuen Hall 

1 - Tomoaki Honma, Yuji Nagata and Satoshi Kojima vs. Gabriel Kidd, Yuya Uemura and Yota Tsuji.  Kojima pins Kidd with a Lariat.  Fine opener.

2 - Master Wato, Ryusuke Taguchi, Kota Ibushi and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. DOUKI, Zack Sabre Jr, Taichi and Minoru Suzuki.  Taichi forces Taguchi to submit to a Stretch Plum.  Good match.  Taichi and Suzuki have a stare down and grabbed each other’s throats as they will be facing each other in the G1 Climax.

3 - SANADA, Shingo Takagi and Tetsuya Naito vs. Yujiro Takahashi, Dick Togo and EVIL.  SANADA gets the submission win on Togo with Skull End.  Match was fine for what it was.

4 - NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship: YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii, and Hirooki Goto vs. SHO, Toru Yano and Kazuchika Okada.  Ishii pinned SHO with a brainbuster.   Awesome match!   The story of the match was SHO trying to submit Ishii with every arm submission possible.   Ishii was able to tough it out.  Champions retain.  Ishii and SHO embraced in the ring and SHO dropped to his knees to bow out of respect.  All CHAOS members left the ring together.

5  - IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship: Hiromu Takahashi and BUSHI vs. Yoshinobu Kanemaru and El Desperado.  Desperado pins Takahashi with Pinche Loco.   Desperado and Kanemaru are the new IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Champions.  Awesome match!   All wrestlers were at the top of their game.  In typical Suzuki-Gun fashion, the new champs attacked and laid out Los Ingobernales de Japon with the belts.
