NEVER Openweight champion Minoru Suzuku & IWGP Tag Team champions The Killer Elite Squad vs. Will Ospreay & Toru Yano & YOSHI-HASHI
All six offered the other handshakes before the bell but they all turned on each other and began brawling all over. Suzuki went right after Yano, who has been driving him nuts by consistently beating him in every meeting. They brawled into the crowd with Suzuki dishing out the majority of the damage. When they returned to the ring, Suzuki kept dishing out punishment but was caught with an inverted atomic drop. Suzuki came back to latch on the hanging armbar.

On the floor, Suzuki continued the beating. There was almost too much with everyone at the same time to really give it proper coverage. Suzuki even went after referee Todd Sinclair. Davey Boy Smith Jr. held up Yano for a long time before dropping him back with a suplex. Suzuki tagged in and went right back to work on Yano’s arm. YOSHI-HASHI got into the ring to try and interfere but got snatched in a heel submission so Suzuki had them both locked in at the same time Ospreay hit the ring and stomped Suzuki to make him release the holds.
Yano finally nailed Suzuki and tagged in Ospreay, who went nuts with offensive maneuvers. He snapped a dropkick and a running shooting star press on Smith for a two count. He went for a senton off the ropes but was drilled in mid-air. Smith went for a move but it was turned into a cutter in transition. Ospreay went for a moonsault but was kicked in the face and nailed with a Saito suplex for a two count. Suzuki tagged in and bean kicking away at Ospreay. Ospreay fired back with a chop. Suzuki smiled and the crowd chanted, “You f***ed up.” Suzuki killed him with a kick to the chest. Ospreay manned up and nailed a chop. Suzuki took him down with another. Ospreay fired back with a series and they went back and forth with strikes and kicks and punches and chops until both men went down. Good stuff!

They caught him in the corner and each nailed big moves, but Yano and Ospreay made the save before he could be pinned Ospreay went for a dive but was caught by Archer with a chokeslam and tossed over the guard rail into the crowd. All sorts of chaos again, no pun intended. Ospreay dove from the crowd to the ring apron, then springboarded into the ring and rolled up Archer for the pin.
