Another night on the road to NJPW’s New Beginning in Hiroshima and another elimination tag team match is on the docket. Bullet Club, who were victorious against Suzuki-gun last night is drafted for duty once again. This time they are facing Chaos (Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, Kazuchika Okada, Toru Yano and Yoshi-Hashi) and wonder of wonders, Jay White is back in the fold. He is taking the place of Dick Togo in the match.
Tama Tonga comes down to the ring with the iron glove taped to the IWGP Tag Team Championship belt he is wearing. Man, I wish he would wear the cool make-up again. Jay White comes out to his own music and has his own entrance. Ishii bolts past everyone in Chaos so he can get his hands on White. It is White who takes over though kicking, punching and beating Ishii. Ishii chases White out of the ring. Tonga Loa demands Chaos leader Okada take control of his team.
White chokes out Ishii on the floor with a video cable while Okada is heaved into the time keeper’s table.
“I don’t know where to look. It is chaos!” says Kevin Kelly.
“Pun intended,” jokes Phantasmo.
Another brawl breaks out on the floor with everyone taking shots at one another. Okada goes into the time keeper’s table once again sending everyone flying. Evil is out at 10:34 when Okada tricks him with a low-bridge. Evil responds by hitting Okada across the back with a steel chair. Okada blows a gasket, leaps off the apron and attacks Evil. He is eliminated at 11:12. Bullet Club rushes over to stop Okada from giving Evil a Tombstone Piledriver on the concrete floor. Okada is sent to the back by Red Shoes.
Yano crotches Yujiro with the ropes sending him out at 14:06. White dumps Yano over the top rope ending his celebration at 14:22. Ishii storms the ring to get his hands on White.
“He looks like a Dollar Store gargoyle,” laughs Phantasmo.
Ishii flips out on White repeatedly smashing his head into an exposed turnbuckle and shoves the official when he is told to stop. Ishii brings a chair into the ring. Red Shoes wrestles the chair out of Ishii’s hands. Jado low-blows Ishii from the apron. Tonga and Loa team up to hold Ishii while White kicks him out at 21:47. Goto follows him out next.
It is Yoshi-Hashi against the rest of Bullet Club. Bullet Club takes turns decimating Yoshi-Hashi. Loa hits Ape S–t. White goes to pin him but lifts Yoshi’s head up. He delivers a Dragon Sleeper Suplex and picks up Hashi again before Red Shoes can count three. Loa and Tonga hit a Magic Killer on him. A KO’ed Hashi is picked up again before the 1-2-3 can be slapped.
“Let’s hear it for Yoshi-Hashi! I have never seen someone take so much damage and keep fighting!” jokes Phantasmo about Hashi’s “fighting spirit”.
Goto finally throws in the towel on behalf of Hashi at 27:25 ending the match. Ishii is made to watch as White drops Hashi with a Blade Runner. Ishii is a victim of the same move seconds later.
“Myself, Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa are the real Bullet Club. We are the real six-man champions,” says White as he and the Guerrillas of Destiny demand a match for the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship against Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii and Yoshi-Hashi.
