(7) GAORA SPECIAL 2013 Champion Carnival Final Match: KAI vs. Jun Akiyama
◆Winner: Akiyama (18:57) following the Wrist Clutch Style Exploder.
~ Even though the loss, KAI really made himself known as a future heavyweight contender today and it could only be a matter of time for himself to eventually stands as #1.
~ Jun Akiyama will be the next challenger for Suwama and Triple Crown belts on June 30th.
Akiyama also announced to Masayuki Uchida that he will join All Japan as a full-time (under contract) wrestler. I assume that means the rest of Burning as well, but Akiyama only stated himself personally.
Though from what I can gather it seems that Suwama & Doering may get the World Tag match before than on June 2nd.
