IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match
Tornado Tag Rules
Killer Elite Squad vs. Guerillas of Destiny vs. War Machine (c)

The match starts out with everyone battling on the outside and into the crowd. The GOD hit a Guerilla Warfare to Archer on the entrance ramp. Davey Boy Smith Jr. was on a table on the outside and Row slammed Hanson onto Smith from the apron. The table made an outline of Smith’s back and as Smith rolled over his back was cut up.

Eventually the match becomes just GOD vs. War Machine. Back in the ring, Tama Tong kicks out of a pop up power slam. The GOD come back with a diving head-butt from Loa and top rope splash from Tonga to Rowe for just a 2. War Machine isolate Tonga Loa and hit the Fallout and before the 3, Smith comes back from the dead and pulls the referee out of the ring.

KES are back in and Hanson is put through another table that was set up on the outside. KES isolate Rowe. Archer hits a chokeslam to Rowe but only a 2. They follow up with a Killer Bomb for the 3.

Winners and new IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions: Killer Elite Squad at 13:34. Definitely the best match of the 3. Having it be no DQ was good and it was basically a war which is what it needed to be.

Kota Ibushi and David Finlay vs. Michael Elgin and Hiroshi Tanahashi
: Elgin and Tanahashi at 12:01. Elgin pins Finlay with an Elgin Bomb.

Tomohiro Ishii, Rocky Romero, and Toru Yano vs. Tetsuya Naio, Bushi, and Sanada
: Romero, Yano, and Ishii at 11:56. Ishii pins Bushi after the vertical brainbuster.

Evil and Hiromu Takahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada and Will Ospreay
: Ospreay and Okada at 12:39. Ospreay pins Takahashi after the Oscutter.

IWGP United States Championship Match
Juice Robinson vs. Kenny Omega (c)

Omega rolls out of the ring early to sell the recently surgically repaired knee. But it was a rouse as Omega attacks Juice and runs just fine as he hits a Kotaro Krusher for 2. After a hurricanrana sending Juice to the outside, Omega hits the Rise of the Terminator to Juice. Back in the ring Juice counters the V Tribber with a side kick then hits jackhammer for 2.

Robinson escapes an attempted One Winged Angel and nails Omega with a chop block to the bad knee. Juice then locks in a half crab to the bad leg. Juice continues to work over the knee of Omega. The crowd is starting to turn on Juice when he applies the figure four over the ring post.
Omega finally takes back momentum after a suplex on the apron to the outside and both men are down. Back in the ring Omega hits two snap dragon suplexes and several V Triggers. Juice manages to come back after catching one of the V Triggers and hitting a big lariat for 2.

Juice goes for a Pulp Friction but Omega escapes it. Juice again goes for the move and hits the Pulp Friction but only a 2. Juice can’t believe it so he sends Omega into the corner and goes for a top rope Pulp Friction. Omega stops it and turns it into a top rope One Winged Angel and Juice is definitely not getting up from that.
Winner: Kenny Omega at 32:55.
