Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto & Ryohei Oiwa vs. Bullet Club (KENTA, Yujiro Takahashi, El Phantasmo & SHO)

Bullet Club do their best to keep Tanahashi targeted. Ishii and Goto bring some serious fight to the match but are not able to be as effective as they would like. BC eventually traps Oiwa and SHO locks him in an Armbar for the submission in 8:20.

Winners: Bullet Club (KENTA, Yujiro Takahashi, El Phantasmo & SHO)

TMDK (Bad Dude Tito & Jonah) vs. Team Filthy (Tom Lawlor & Royce Isaacs)

Another fun chapter between these two men. Lawlor and Jonah are destined to fight each other forever. Jonah eventually catches Isaacs with a powerbomb for the pinfall in 10:02.

Winners: TMDK (Bad Dude Tito & Jonah)

Tama Tonga, Jado & David Finlay vs. United Empire (Will Ospreay, Aaron Henare & Great-O-Khan)

Finlay and Ospreay test each other out before their block competition match. Finlay continues to bring the fire that has defined his recent success in NJPW. Tama gets to test out O-Khan and Henare, but all momentum goes out the door when Jado tags in. Jado gets a few licks in but Henare locks in a Full Nelson for the submission in 7:29.

Winners: United Empire (Will Ospreay, Aaron Henare & Great-O-Khan)

Los Ingobernables de Japon (Shingo Takagi, SANADA & BUSHI) vs. Suzuki-gun (Zack Sabre Jr., Taichi & TAKA Michinoku)

Sabre and SANADA continue their long rivalry. Taichi bullies BUSHI as well as trading stiff strikes with Takagi. Sabre is able to use his ring awareness to keep himself alive against SANADA's fluid chain wrestling and Takagi's brutality. TAKA tags in but gets decapitated by a Pumping Bomber from Takagi in 8:15.

Winners: Los Ingobernables de Japon (Shingo Takagi, SANADA & BUSHI)

There is a brief intermission.

A Block: Jeff Cobb (2) vs. Lance Archer (2)

Neither man can really claim a strength or speed advantage, so Archer attempts to use his size to his advantage. The game becomes "anything you can do, I can do better" as Archer would toss Cobb and Cobb would come back with a suplex of his own. They battle to the outside, where Archer makes Cobb and the Young Lions pay for existing.

Back in the ring, Archer hits a series of high impact moves, including chokeslams and other ring-shaking slams, but Cobb is able to weather the assault and hit Tour of the Islands for the win in 11:37.

Winner: Jeff Cobb (4)

D Block: YOSHI-HASHI (0) vs. Juice Robinson (2)

Juice underestimates YOSHI-HASHI and pays the price. YOSHI-HASHI somehow has a response for every bit of Juice's offense, countering Pulp Friction with things like Sleeper Holds and Dragon Suplexes. Juice tries every underhanded tactic in the book, but the referee is on to his tactics and stops him from doing things like rolling up YOSHI-HASHI with his tights. Juice unleashes one last desperate gasp but is drilled into the canvas with Karma by YOSHI-HASHI for the pinfall in 12:16.

Winner: YOSHI-HASHI (2)

B Block: Jay White (4) vs. Chase Owens (2)

Both men two sweet to start. Jay gives Chase a fat envelope to lay down. Jay gives the ring announcer the envelope for safe keeping. Chase grabs the envelope and reveals that the money is blank.

Jay assures Chase that he'll pay him later. Fingerpoke of Doom but White refuses to cover because he doesn't trust Chase. Chase avoids Bladerunner. Negotiations have stalled. Jay attacks Chase. Chase hits C Trigger for a nearfall. White avoids a Package Piledriver on the floor.

Back in the ring and Owens takes complete control. Gedo begins begging Chase and White to stop fighting. White hits a Uranage for a nearfall and keeps up the assault. Owens comes back with a Styles Clash for a nearfall. White comes back with Bladerunner for the pinfall in 13:12.

Winner: Jay White (6)

A Block: Bad Luck Fale (4) vs. Kazuchika Okada (4)

Fale does his best to overpower Okada but Okada keeps his head and stays patient against the big man. Fale dominates much of the early parts of the match. Okada comes back and drops Fale with a series of slams and dropkicks. Okada locks Fale in The Money Clip for the submission in 11:52.

Winner: Kazuchika Okada (6)

C Block: Tetsuya Naito (0) vs. EVIL (2)

Naito jumps EVIL to start. The match is a ridiculous brawl, with all of the earned violence that these two's history would suggest. EVIL is up to his usual tricks, beating the hell out of Naito and trying every underhanded tactic in the book, even using the referee to hit Magic Killer. Both men go through a table at ringside.

Naito is able to withstand the assault and comes back to drop EVIL with Destino in 24:54.

Winner: Tetsuya Naito (2)
