EventEdit

Taka Michinoku & Taichi defeated Jushi Liger & Tiger mask.  During the match, the referee was temporarily knocked out, giving time for Taichi to expose his knee brace and strike Tiger Mask with it before using a leg cradle for the pin.

Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) made the first successful defense of their IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships by defeating Time Splitters (Kushida and Alex Shelley).  Before the match, Koslov sang the Russian national anthem for the crowd.  Romero pinned Kushida after delivering a springboard kneedrop to Kushida, who was being held by Koslov.

Kazushi Sakuraba appeared and announced he would be returning to the ring soon.  He expressed his desire to face Yuji Nagata in his return match, which Nagata agreed to, and the two sealed their intentions with a pinky shake.

Tetsuya Naito made his return to the ring, defeating Yujiro Takahashi via pinfall after delivering his Stardust Press.  Naito was returning from a knee injury that initially occured during the 2012 G1 Climax in August, an injury that was ultimately aggrivated to the point of requiring reconstructive surgery after his match at King of Pro-Wrestling against Yujiro Takahash.  That match was stopped by an official due to the severity of Naito's injury, and Naito was stretchered out of the arena.  Naito's win over Takahashi here saw him avenge his previous injury.

Prince Devitt defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi via pinfall after using his Bloody Sunday DDT in a match that was speculated to decide the next number one contender to the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.  Fellow Bullet Club members Bad Luck Fale, Karl Anderson, and Tama Tonga assisted Devitt throughout the match with interference.  Anderson was ejected from ringside during the match.

Kazuchika Okada made his second succesful defense of the IWGP Heavyweight Championship by defeating Togi Makabe.  Okada pinned Makabe after delivering a tombstone piledriver followed by a Rainmaker.

After the main event, Prince Devitt challenged Okada to an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match.  Okada agreed on the condition that Devitt would put up his IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship in a match against Okada's cornerman Gedo.
