The tournament’s format and structure slightly different this year: 4 blocks, 8 wrestlers per block, 2 progress out into the Quarter Finals and it’s a knockout format from there.

Shows will feature 8 matches each, 2 blocks getting through a round of match-ups. Finally, there’s a 20 minute time-limit for the matches this year, something to kick up the pace of the action… for everyone except EVIL (I’ll never get that time back).

With that explained, let’s proclaim this year’s “Born in the ring!” tournament slogan and get to these results.

B BLOCK

Tanga Loa vs YOSHI-HASHI (IWGP Tag Team Champion)

Starting out fast with some direct intensity behind the action, charging and chopping right from the off. Both lad taking it in turns to have momentum, the strength and power of Tanga Loa proving to be an early factor working against the Tag Team Champion.

YOSHI-HASHI’s fight backs constantly cut off by the brute force of the Tongan. The crowd enthusiastically clapping after YH kicked out of a Jackhammer, doing what they can to motivate him back up. The back n’ forth strikes afterwards finally working in his favour as he’s able to follow up with the Headhunter.

The match having now swung as Loa finds it’s YOSHI-HASHI with the answers, like being able to roll out of a roll up and clock him with a Superkick. The Tongan making a statement after YH won again, the CHAOS man reversing into a Dragon Suplex and charging lariat. In response Tanga Loa immediately getting to his feet with a scream of fire.

Loa charging with a Spear and sending us into our closing minutes, both lads worn and motivated to capitalise. After winning the latest Lariat fight, Tanga Loa takes the risk to elevate proceedings by climbing to the top rope… and actually succeeds! Crashing down with a Diving Headbutt onto YH.

Now all set to go for the finish, Jado amping his man up from ringside, but the follow up is swiftly reversed into a Crucifix Pin for the win.

WINNER: YOSHI-HASHI (4 points)
