8. Anniversary Special Singles Match: Kazuchika Okada beat Kota Ibushi (18:41) with the Rainmaker.
* New Japan ran its 42nd anniversary show at the place it all began in 1972, Ota Ward Gymnasium, rather than the usual Korakuen Hall show, and once again saw a packed house.
* A 10 bell tribute was held for the late, great Billy Robinson before the show.
* Okada came from behind to beat Ibushi in an amazing champion vs. champion main event that saw Ibushi incredibly kick out of the Rainmaker at 1, like he did the Boma Ye last year, before finally succumbing to the same move.
* El Desperado attacked Liger after their match to try and provoke him into a singles match. Liger agreed but raised the ante, suggesting a Mask vs. Mask Match! Could we finally see Liger unmasked after 25 years?
