Danshoku Dieno vs. Yukio Naya vs. Hiroshi Yamato vs. Makoto Oishi vs. Su Yung in a Deathmatch

Yung bit the trainee Nakamura at ringside and dragged him to the back. She came out a few seconds later with a bloody hand in her mouth (a prop obviously) like a scene out of “Night of the Living Dead”.

They went to a draw in a horror comedy type of match.

Hisaya Imabayashi acted as MC for the match. He then turned heel and started cutting promos on all of the guys and pointed at them. They all acted like they passed out or “dropped dead” one by one after he pointed at them. He did it to the referee as well.

He tried to do the same thing to Su Yung but it had no effect. He then panicked in fear of her and revived everyone else off the mat to help him against her. All of the wrestlers and the referee pointed at her with him but it still had no effect.

They all asked the crowd to get on their feet and point at Yung with them. It started to work as she clutched her chest and backed off into a corner. She started to shake and slinked off to the back.

As Imabayashi arrogantly was on the ramp posing for the crowd, then Nakamura, who Yung bit at the start, came up behind him in zombie makeup form and with no arm. He bit Imabayashi and dragged him to the back. He then came out with a hand in his mouth and he threw it in the ring. The lights went out and it was intermission.

Intermission

Antonio Honda vs. Santino Marella

Marella got the pin after the Cobra Strike.

During the match, Honda was going to do a dive to the outside but he fell and hurt his knee. He did the routine where he said he was going to give him but he wanted to tell a story first. He tried to poke Marella in the eyes but Marella ducked.

Marella pulled out the Cobra Glove and “bit” the arm of Honda to make his arm go numb.

Honda brought out a snake charmer flute and started playing it to control the Cobra. The music forced the Cobra to bite Marella.

Honda brought out a Fox puppet and put it on his hand so it could fight Marella’s Cobra.

After the match Honda said he admired Marella’s spirit. He said Marella might be from Canada but his heart is Japan. He thanked him for the match.

Marella spoke in Japanese and then English. He said he trained in judo since he was a child and actually lived in Japan early last decade. He said Japan was his second home. He said he was retired but tonight the Cobra came out one more time.

They bowed to each other and hugged.

Konosuke Takeshita, MAO, Nobuhiro Shimatani vs. HARASHIMA, Ken Ohka, and Yukio Sakaguchi

HARASHIMA pinned Shimatani after the running double knees strike.

All of the roster including Su Yung came out to the ring and had a can of Budweiser beer to drink as they toasted the crowd.
