NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed Results (9.30.18)

New Japan Pro Wrestling presented a show from the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, California tonight.

It was a big night for Cody, who would win the IWGP United States Championship and also seemingly book himself in a big match for King of Pro Wrestling.

NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed

  3. Jeff Cobb, Chris Sabin, and Flip Gordon defeated Hirooki Goto, Beretta, and Chuckie T  – Cobb pinned Chuckie T after Tour of the Islands
    • Following the match, Hirooki Goto got in the face of Jeff Cobb. Cobb then challenged Goto to come at him but Goto ducked out of the ring, seemingly setting up a rematch between the two. Goto defended the title against Cobb successfully at the G1 Special in SF earlier this summer.
  4. Zack Sabre Jr., Lance Archer, and Davey Boy Smith Jr. defeated Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, Bushi, and EVIL – ZSJ pinned EVIL with a bridging pining combination.

    • Gedo hit Tanahashi and Kushida with brass knucks behind the refs back, allowing White to hit the Bladerunner for the win.
    • After the match, White cut a promo on Tanahashi. He was heavily disliked by the crowd. He called on Tanahashi and NJPW to give him a shot at the G1 briefcase, citing his victory over Tanahashi during their G1 round-robin by this summer.
  6. IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship Tournament Semi-Final
    Marty Scurll defeated Will Ospreay – wins via pin after the Graduation

    • With the win, Scurll moves on to face Kushida at King of Pro Wrestling on October 8th to declare a new champion.

    • The Tongans now have both the 6-man titles and the heavyweight tag titles as well.
  8. IWGP United States Championship
    Cody defeated Juice Robinson (c) – Title Change

    • Cody reversed a super-plex into a pinning combination to get the 3-count.
  9. The Golden Lovers (Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi) defeated Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii (CHAOS)

    • The Golden Lovers hit the Golden Trigger on Ishii for the win.
    • After the match, Omega told his friend Ibushi that the fans wanted to see the rematch between the two of them. Cody then came out and said there should be a three-way match between Omega, Ibushi and him.
    • Omega agreed with Cody and said they should have it at King of Pro Wrestling. It will be just the second triple threat match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in history.
