TAKA eventually gets Kojima to the mat to stretch his shoulders, but Kojima fights out and hits Cozy Cutter followed by a Lariat for the win in 6:54.

Winner: Satoshi Kojima

Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Ryohei Oiwa vs. GBH (Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma)

Oiwa is dissected by Makabe and Honma to start. The Young Lion tries to get some fire, but the veteran tag team prove to be too much for him. Tenzan tags in and gets the better of Honma. Tenzan nearly gets the win over Honma but instead tags in Oiwa. Oiwa comes in with some momentum but his wings get clipped by Makabe, who locks in a Boston Crab for the submission in 10:50.

Winners: GBH (Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma)

Yuji Nagata, The DKC & Clark Connors vs. Suzuki-gun (El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Taichi)

LA Dojo team does its best against Suzuki-gun. Connors continues to be an explosive and strong middleweight, too big to be a junior, but still smaller than a heavyweight. Nagata and Taichi have some thrilling exchanges but Suzuki-gun's underhanded tactics keep LA Dojo from ever really breaking out in the match. Taichi pinned The DKC via Backdrop in 11:24.

Winners: Suzuki-gun (El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Taichi

There is brief intermission.

CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI & Toru Yano) vs. House of Torture (EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi & Dick Togo)

CHAOS continue to have House of Torture's number. Goto and YOSHI-HASHI kept up the pace and focused on Yujiro and EVIL, while Yano and Togo continued to feud over the dog cage. SHO tried to get involved for House of Torture, leading to a double low blow from EVIL and Yujiro. CHAOS fights their way out of the predicament and Goto & YOSHI-HASHI flatten Yujiro with Shoto for the pinfall in 9:41.

Winners: CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI & Toru Yano)

Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Alex Zayne, Ryusuke Taguchi & Master Wato vs. Tetstuya Naito, BUSHI, SANADA, Hiromu Takahashi & Shingo Takagi

Okada, Ishii, Naito, Takagi & SANADA all took the opportunity to tenderize their G1 Climax 32 competitors. Taguchi got his ass out. Hiromu, Wato, BUSHI and Taguchi all jockeyed for position as the Jr. Tag division is wide open. A lot of fast paced action comes to an end when Takagi pinned Wato via Made In Japan in 15:53.

Winners: Tetstuya Naito, BUSHI, SANADA, Hiromu Takahashi & Shingo Takagi

Hiroshi Tanahashi & KUSHIDA vs. KENTA & Taiji Ishimori

Eager to capitalize off of yesterday's victory, Tanahashi and KUSHIDA took a measured approach against the BC tandem. Tanahashi and KENTA continue to let their animosity get the better of them but KENTA uses it to his advantage. KUSHIDA is eager to get a win over Ishimori and secure a title shot against the Junior champion. As the match wears on, KENTA and Tanahashi fight to the back. KUSHIDA continues to attack Ishimori's arm, trying for a submission, pinfall, anything, but gets trapped in La Mistica and is forced to submit to the Bone Lock in 20:51.

Winners: KENTA & Taiji Ishimori
