(7) Takeshi Morishima, Jun Akiyama & Akitoshi Saito vs. Takashi Sugiura, Go Shiozaki & Kensuke Sasaki [DIAMOND RING]
◆Winner: Shiozaki (22:41) with a Moonsault Press on Saito.
~ Shiozaki gets the win over one half of the GHC Tag Champions. Shiozaki was supposed to be teaming with Kobashi for a shot at the GHC Tag belts next month, but due to injury, Kobashi will not be able to meet the defense. So one has to think if Shiozaki getting the win shows that he still wants the shot, and if it is just a matter of finding a replacement partner?
Update: It has been announced that Go Shiozaki will be teaming with Keiji Mutoh to take on Jun Akiyama & Akitoshi Saito on March 18 in a non-title match.
