Hostilities between Bullet Club and Chaos touched off during the second night of the Castle Attack tour with the Club laying out the members in one of their tag team matches. It was Chaos (Sho, Toru Yano, Tomohiro Ishii and Kazuchika Okada) taking on Bullet Club (Chase Owens, Jay White, Evil and Dick Togo).
Jay White attacked the poor announcer so he couldn’t detail Chaos’ arrival. When things calm down, Yano asks the rest of the faction to leave the ring so he can take on Chase Owens on his own.
Yano is chastised by the official for removing two of the turnbuckle pads. Meanwhile, Owens gets his date for the KPOW match with Yano mixed up and brings his strap into the ring courtesy of Gedo. He whips and chokes Yano with it all the way to the floor.
Evil hurls Yano into one of the exposed turnbuckles and laughs. White gives Ishii a double axe handle while he is sleeping on the apron. He takes a nasty fall to the floor. Owens attaches the strap to one of Yano’s wrists and one of his own. He pulls Yano back and forth labelling him with punches on the floor.
Yano slams Owens into the ringside barrier, dives into the ring to escape but he cannot get far lashed to Owens like he is. A tug of war begins with Owens on the floor and Yano in the ring. When the official tries to free Yano, Owens slides into the ring, pushes the ref aside and lashes Yano some more.
The official frees Yano at last. Yano finally tags out to Ishii who rushes over to cause as much damage as he can to White.
Sho has Togo in an arm bar and it looks like he will submit. Evil saves the day with some stomps. Evil slams Sho down hard with Darkness Falls. He clotheslines Okada out of his boots as he storms the ring. Dick Togo pins Sho.
Gedo lends White a hand after the bell strangling Ishii with a shirt, banner or something. White joins in so that Ishii is being choked out on both sides. Okada makes the save. The rest of Bullet Club goes insane with Owens choking Yano with the strap and Evil putting Okada in the Scorpion Death Lock. Ishii must be helped to the back by Young Lions once the mayhem is over.
Road to Castle Attack Night Two Results
Yuya Uemura, Yoshi-Hashi and Hirooki Goto versus Bullet Club (Jado, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa)
All three heels take a Demolition-like beatdown from the faces. Goto and Hashi give the Club a run for their money. Yoshi-Hashi makes Jado submit to the Butterfly Lock so technically, the Young Lion on this team gets a win.
Winners: Yuya Uemura, Yoshi-Hashi and Hirooki Goto
Yota Tsuji, Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Hiroshi Tanahashi versus The United Empire (Jeff Cobb, Will Ospreay and Great-O-Khan)
The faces almost pin Ospreay with a triple-team that ends with a diving head butt from Tenzan. Tenzan and Khan lock horns. Khan makes sure he uses the Mongolian Chops on Tenzan…just to rub things in even more. Ospreay tags in and Cobb holds Tenzan. Ospreay jokes around giving Tenzan some goofy chops too. Tanahashi gets into the act blocking Khan’s chops, punching him in the face and clobbering him with some chops of his own. Tsuji has Cobb in the Boston Crab. Bea Priestley pushes the bottom rope so that Cobb can grab it and break the hold. The Ace and Khan are tied up in a claw hold battle. Khan wins that war. Cobb pins Tsuji with a Tour of the Islands. Khan issues another challenge to The Ace for the Never Openweight Championship.
Winners: The United Empire (Will Ospreay, Jeff Cobb and The Great-O-Khan)
