After the match, Taichi attacks Goto then chokes him out with his microphone stand and drags him to the back. Switchblade then tries to sneak attack Juice, but Juice is able to run him off. Though it looks like Switchblade is already in the head of Juice Robinson.
We then get a video announcing that next year’s Wrestling Dontaku will also be a two-night affair.

– Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, EVIL, Hiromu Takahashi, SANADA & Tetsuya Naito) def. Suzuki-gun (Davey Boy Smith, Jr., El Desperado, Lance Archer, Minoru Suzuki, & Yoshinobu Kanemaru) by pinfall with Destino from Naito on Kanemaru. After the match, Naito lingers before leaving and a man in a BUSHI mask jumps the rail and attacks him. He drags Naito in the ring and unmasks. It’s none other than Chris Jericho. Jericho nails Naito with the Codebreaker. The beat-down continues as the young lions and the referees flood the ring and Jericho heads to the floor and gets the ring bell, cracking Naito open with it. Jericho then heads back for one more round of beat-down as blood flows down Naito’s face. Naito refuses to be stretchered out and throws the board out of the ring.
– Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) & Golden Lovers (Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi) def. Bullet Club (Cody Rhodes, Hangman Page, Marty Scurll, Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) by pinfall when Fale reverses a body-slam attempt from Scurll into a crossbody pin. After the match, Omega chases Rhodes to the back and Yujiro and Owens comes out, leaving the rest of Bullet Club in the ring together. They have a momentary stand up before throwing Too Sweets up all around and standing in unison.
– Will Ospreay (c) def. KUSHIDA by pinfall with Storm-breaker to retain the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. After the match, we get another video teasing the return of The Bone Soldier. Tama Tonga comes down to the ring where Ospreay is still kneeling and gets on the mic. We see that The Bone Soldier is behind Tama, but he looks different and he has got abs now. The Bone Soldier beats Ospreay down and hits a suplex turned into a Codebreaker maneuver before Tama continues. Tama tells Ospreay that he has been having luck running through challengers but not anymore. Tama then tells Ospreay to take coal and turn it into a diamond, then he unmasks The Bone Soldier. He is revealed to be none other than Taiji Ishimori.

– Kazuchika Okada (c) def. Hiroshi Tanahashi by pinfall with the Rainmaker to retain the IWGP Heavyweight Title and sets a new record for total number of defenses at 12. After the match, Okada gets on the mic and puts Tanahashi over. Okada then calls out Kenny Omega as his next challenger. Okada then says that he wants a no time limit match-up. Omega comes out and grabs the mic. Omega offers one better and says that he wants a 2 out of 3 falls match-up and Okada accepts.
