A few other notes from the other promotions:
- KENTA was defeated in his return match by Naomichi Marufuji. Great to see KENTA back though, Noah really needs him. On the same show, Takeshi Morishima successfully retained the GHC Heavyweight title against former champ Go Shiozaki, and the team of Jun Akiyama and Akitoshi Saito lost the GHC Tag Team titles to the TNA team of Magnus and Samoa Joe
- All Japan held it's "Jr. Hyper League" tournament. It was severely lacking in star power compared to New Japan's "Best of the Super Juniors", or even the upcoming Michinoku Pro "Fukomen Mask League", so I won't break down every show, but the finals were held today in the matinee show at Korakuen Hall:
1. SUSHI, Gillette & Andy Wu beat Hikaru Sato, MAZADA & Aegyptus Aerial (10:57) SUSHI over MAZADA with the Tekkamaki
2. Jr. Hyper League - Semi Final: Hiroshi Yamato beat Koji Kanemoto (19:18) with a Cross-Arm Suplex Hold.
3. Jr. Hyper League - Semi Final: Shuji Kondo beat KAI (7:25) with an Inside Cradle.
4. KENSO Nomination Match: Taiyo Kea, Masanobu Fuchi & Masao Inoue beat Akebono, KENSO & Ryota Hama (11:07) Inoue over Hama with an Inside Cradle
5. Suwama & Kaz Hayashi vs. Masayuki Kono & Minoru Tanaka - No Contest (13:22).
6. Special Singles Match: Masakatsu Funaki beat Yuji Nagata (9:38) with the Hybrid Blaster.
7. AJPW World Tag Team Title: Takao Omori & Manabu Soya (c) beat Seiya Sanada & Joe Doering (14:28) Soya over Sanada with the Wild Bomber (1st defense).
8. Jr. Hyper League - Final: Hiroshi Yamato beat Shuji Kondo (14:28) with a Cross-Arm Suplex Hold. Yamato wins the 2012 Jr. Hyper League
