Suzuki-gun moves on after Sabre Jr. gets the technical submission on Rowe with a triangle choke to eliminate the team of War Machine and Elgin. Yano is responsible for eliminating Suzuki-gun immediately. Yano eliminates Taguchi Japan. Beretta hits the Dudebuster on Toma Tonga and we have new 6-man tag team champs.

NEVER Openweight Championship (Hair vs. Hair Match)
Hirooki Goto defeats Minoru Suzuki (c)

Goto hits Goto Revolution to get the victory and we have a new champ. Goto sets up a chair for Suzuki to cut his hair but Suzuki wants his own chair and he wants to shave his head himself. He does just that and slams his shaven hair on the chair before exiting the ring.

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship (Four-Way Match)

Ospreay hits the OsCutter on Scurll to get the pin and become a 2-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion.

Tanahashi becomes the first champion to retain on the show after hitting High Fly Flow.

IWGP United States Championship
Kenny Omega (c) defeats Chris Jericho

Omega hits the One Winged Angel on a steel chair to get the pinfall. This match delivered on so many levels. Jericho put on the performance of a lifetime at 47-years-old and Kenny, well, he just continues to be the Best Bout Machine as advertised.

IWGP Heavyweight Championship
Kazuchika Okada (c) defeats Tetsuya Naito

Okada retains after hitting a Rainmaker that appeared to KO Naito. He countered a Destino in a jumping Tombstone piledriver before the final Rainmaker to seal the deal. Okada’s historic reign as IWGP Heavyweight Champion continues.
