TOURNAMENT WINNERS WERE CROWNED, MORE MATCHES WERE MADE FOR THE TOYKO DOME BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE HAD THE FIRST SHOT FIRED IN ‘ALPHA VS OMEGA’.

Following Kenny Omega‘s six man tag team match teaming with The Young Bucks to beat SHO, YOH and Rocky Romero, the lights dimmed and Chris Jericho appeared, giving Omega a codebreaker in the ring, and eventually busting open the IWGP US Champion. Jericho also gave NJPW Announcer, Don Callis, a codebreaker in the ring.

The other big story was, of course the finals of the World Tag League itself, where the L.I.J duo of EVIL and SANADA bested The Guerrillas of Destiny to win the whole tournament and go on to face the IWGP World Tag Team Champions, Killer Elite Squad at WrestleKingdom 12. The interesting thing to note is EVIL and SANADA are also two thirds of the NEVER Openweight Six-Man Champions, so whether they’ll be defended in the Tokyo Dome is up in the air.

Another potential WrestleKingdom match that looks to be sealed happened when  CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, and YOSHI-HASHI) defeated Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki, Lance Archer, Davey Boy Smith Jr., and El Desperado). It appears that Minoru Suzuki will be defending his NEVER Openweight Title against Hirooki Goto, with the interesting stipulation of Goto putting his hair on the line.

In the other matches  Hiromu Takahashi and Tetsuya Naito defeated Will Ospreay and Kazuchika Okada, Marty Scurll and Cody defeated KUSHIDA and Kota Ibushi, Yuji Nagata, Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Manabu Nakanishi, and Jushin Thunder Liger defeated Togi Makabe, David Finlay, Henare, Hirai Kawato, and Katsuya KitamuraMichael Elgin, Jeff Cobb, Hanson, and Raymond Rowe defeated the Bullet Club team of Hangman Page, Yujiro Takahashi, Chase Owens, and Leo Tonga and Best Friends (Beretta and Chuckie T) defeated Death Juice (Juice Robinson and Sami Callihan).

Finally in the only singles match on the card, Bad Luck Fale defeated BUSHI.
