~ The next event will be the WK VI, Tanahashi went to shake Suzuki’s hand as the next time they face off it will be for the IWGP. They shook hands, but Suzuki turned the tables and locked in a sleeper hold on Tana. TAKA & Taichi even came out to act as guard control while Takayama and Suzuki land their finishing blows to the defenseless Tanahashi.
Suzuki grabbed the mic and said that he knows next year is the 40th Anniversary, but then he finally exposed his true thoughts as he said NJPW is pretty much rubbish and trash. That next year NJPW will be revolving around Suzukigun!
~ Tanahashi was carried out on a stretcher after Suzukigun left the ring.
