It will be an all Chaos final in the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Championship Tournament.
The Chaos teams of Chaos Sho, Toru Yano, Kazuchika Okada and Yoshi-Hashi, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto claimed their spots in today’s Summer Struggle event. They will meet in the finals on Sunday.
In the first bout, Chaos went to war with Los Ingobernables de Japón once again as Sho, Toru Yano, Kazuchika Okada took on Bushi, Sanada and Shingo Takagi. It looked as if Yano would be pinned as Los Ingobernables de Japón triple-teamed him in the middle of the ring until Bushi blew a dive out of the ring. Bushi collided with a Young Lion and the barricade. Yano tied Bushi’s mask to the ringside barrier. Bushi was counted out giving Chaos the sneaky style win. Yano tied the mask so tight a Young Lion had to cut Bushi loose with a pair of scissors.
Los Ingobernables de Japón protested the decision but it was to no avail. Bushi threw a tantrum on the apron and kicked a barrier on the way back to the locker room.
Master Wato, Kota Ibushi and Hiroshi Tanahashi went down to defeat to the Chaos team of Yoshi-Hashi, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto in the second tournament match. Goto and Ishii gave Yoshi-Hashi an assist drilling Master Wato with a Reverse Ushikoroshi and a sliding lariat. Yoshi notched the win with a tiger bomb. Tanahashi and Ishii and Yoshi-Hashi and Ibushi got into a bit of shoving match. Although Ibushi and Yoshi hugged things out Ishii chopped Ibushi in the chest twice. Ibushi got in Ishii’s face as Young Lions held them apart.
