There was a funny spot as Maiumi wanted to do the standing triple splash on Kamifuki. Noa had no problem jumping on Maiumi’s back but Maki tried a few times and couldn’t get up on Noa’s back. Kamifuku was able to recover off of the mat and she gave all three of them the Three Stooges double eye poke.

Maiumi, Noa, and Maki all got on the same page to finally get the standing triple splash on Manase for a near fall.
TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions Sakisama and Misao vs. Nodoka Tenma and Raku
Misao submitted Raku for the win.
After the match, Sakisama and Misao gloated at Tenma. Misao did the heel routine of offering the mic to their defeated opponents. Yuki Aino ran in the ring and batted the mic away because she was tired of all the bullying.
The heels brushed a rose around the face of Aino. Tenma then stepped between and bit the rose off of the stem and started eating it. She gave up after a while and threw the rose across the ring at the heels.
Tenma and Aino will get a future tag titles shot.

Saiki pinned Itoh after the jackhammer.

Saiki powerfully grabbed Itoh’s hand and forced her to shake hands with her. Itoh looked shocked and complied.

Tatsumi tried to give a forearm to Itoh but accidentally hit the “indestructible” head of Itoh. Tatsumi tried to rally with another hip attack but that also connected with Itoh’s head. Both tag out.
Fast paced exchanges between Saiki and Yamashita.

Itoh went to apply the Itoh Special but Saiki turned it into a cradle for a near fall.
