Ring announcer Sayuri Nanba interviewed all of the tournament losers at ringside before the main event. A few of them talked about it being a totally different atmosphere to wrestle in with no crowd for reactions.
Namba had her left middle finger in heavy white bandaging. She said she was cutting up mushrooms and ended up cutting herself.
Shoko Nakajima pinned Yuki Aino after the diving senton to win the tournament. They shook hands and bowed to each other after the match.
Nakajima cut a promo and said she was supposed to face Thunder Rosa for the International Princess Title at Korakuen Hall tonight but it will happen at a later time. She brought out the rest of the roster to celebrate with her.
Tetsuya Koda came to the ring. He said there will be another one of these dojo shows on 3/8/20 (which will be head to head against STARDOM’s YouTube show).
He gave Nakajima the dinner certificate. Nakajima said Aino deserved something too. He said he would pay for her meal as well. Yamashita and the rest of the roster wanted him to pay for all of them too.
This was a nicely done production with lots of faced paced action. They had an broadcast team. Usually TJPW shows have no announcers at all. After each match the winners walked over to the broadcast table to do interviews as the next two competitors quickly walked out to the ring for the next match.
Yuki Sakazaki was not there and was never scheduled to be. She worked with AEW ppv in Chicago teaming with Riho in a loss to Britt Baker and Penelope Ford on the pre-show.
