(4) Legend Championship Match: [Champion] Super Tiger vs. [Challenger] Kazunari Murakami
◆Winner: NO CONTEST ()
~ The match barely lasted over 5 mins. Murakami jumped Tiger at the beginning of the contest and they spilled into the crowd. Murakami argued with the referee as well. By the time they actually returned in the ring the ref had already lost control of what was going on in the match and their blatant disregard for his rulings the match was deemed a no contest.
~ The fans called for a match restart, but seemed to want nothing of it as he was trying to walk out of the arena. Super Tiger even threw a chair at him as he was leaving.
Kind of an interesting turn there, Murakami is known for his brutal side in the ring, but this may suggest something more. There was the whole “bother” YASSHI and the VooDoo MURDERS back in February, so could it be that he decided to join in arms with them?
