Detailed Results
This week's show is a trip back to Tokyo, from part 2 of February's Honor Rising supershow, this one at Korakuen Hall. Kevin Kelly & Rocky Romero are at the mic's, with Ian Riccoboni doing voice-overs to book-end the show.

1. Jushin Liger, Tiger Mask, & Delirious vs. Evil, Bushi, & Sanada.

If this is the same Sanada who was in Impact Wrestling (formerly TNA), he's bulked up since returning home to Japan last year. Delirious is now mostly a comedy act, and, predictably, the designated jobber. Nothing special, as Evil whacked Delirious behind the ref's back with a chair, leading to Sanada locking on the Skull End, a modified dragon sleeper, and Delirious tapped out immediately.

Winners: Evil, Bushi, & Sanada.

2. Hiroki Goto vs. Damian Martinez.

This was, I think, "Punishment"'s debut in Japan, and he didn't disappoint. Got a big pop for the vault over the ringpost for a tope, but couldn't connect with South of Heaven on three tries. On the last, Goto countered into GTR (Eye of the Hurricane dropped on the knee) for the win.

Winner: Hiroki Goto.

3. Will Ospreay, the Briscoes, & Kazuchika Okada vs. Bullet Club (Kenny Omega, Cody, & the Young Bucks).

The American Nightmare's 1st visit to Japan as a member of Bullet Club AND Ring of Honor's roster. They teased Okada and Omega to start, but Okada wanted to test Cody. Luckily, everyone got their share of time. Ospreay was face in peril for much of the match. Bucks teased the Meltzer Driver early, but didn't connect, though they got some of their other spots in. Omega didn't really do much, and didn't impress. It came down to Cody & Ospreay, and Cody landed CrossRhodes to end it.

Winners: Bullet Club.

Romero actually split play-by-play with Kelly for some of the evening, and sounded like he has a future in broadcasting after he hangs 'em up.
