7. IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title: Prince Devitt (c) beat Kenny Omega Dramatic Dream Team (17:29) with the Bloody Sunday (2nd defense).

* Tributes were held for the late Kotetsu Yamamoto, who this show was dedicated to.

* Devitt continues to down outsiders, DDT’s Kenny Omega the latest in a long chain of junior stars to fall to New Japan’s young junior ace in recent months after Marufuji, Liger, Ibushi, Ishimori, Aoki, and Davey Richards. This was said to have been a fantastic match and Devitt’s second successful defense of his IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title.

* TAJIRI intruded after the sixth match, green misting Yano and suggesting their feud isn’t over after Yano beat TAJIRI in July.

* Nagata & Wataru scored a big victory over NO LIMIT and were attacked by IWGP Tag Team Champions, Bad Intentions (Bernard & Anderson), after the match. This could lead to an IWGP Tag Team Title match between the two duos at Kobe World Hall later this month.

* Jado returned after many months absent due to injury, the famous brother tandem of Jado & Gedo back together and possibly soon in the hunt for the IWGP Jr. Tag Team Title that they have held four times in the past but that they have been without since May ‘07.
