~ If you missed the news yesterday, Naomichi Marufuji suffered a right knee injury during the previous show. NOAH has updated that Marufuji has suffered ligament damage to his right knee and he will be unable to compete for the rest of the tour. NOAH said that a return period has not been determined at this time, and that details involving his place in the GTL will be determined soon.

◆Winner: DRAW (15:00) Time Expired.
(2) Akitoshi Saito (Free) vs. Bobby Fish
◆Winner: Saito (12:30) following a Running Sickle of Death.
(3) Takashi Sugiura (BRAVE) vs. Jake Dirden
◆Winner: Sugiura (10:06) with an Ankle Hold.
~ Kotoge made the bid to Sugiura to replace Marufuji in the GTL. Sugiura seemed to have accepted the offer, and in turn this would be a big step for Kotoge.
