(7) CHAMPION OF STRONGEST-K Championship Match: [Challenger] Taishi Takizawa beat [13th Champion] Yuji Hino with the Takabisha to become the 14th Champion of STRONGEST-K
After the semi-final win, Kengo laid out his partner Sekine. Not sure what's going on there, but it should be interesting to see what develops since they are still STRONGEST-K Tag champs. As for the main event, I'm not surprised Takizawa is getting a run as STRONGEST-K champ, but I am a bit surprised he went over Hino in the biggest show of the year. Takizawa has been on fire since his return to K-Dojo after his short stint with WWE Developmental, and a win like this over arguably the ace of K-Dojo in Hino is a big deal and, in all honesty, is sorely needed to try and build new top of the card stars for K-Dojo. With Mashimo spending some time in New Japan with TAKA in Suzukigun and Hino already becoming a top of the card guy in DDT, as well as being one of those being rumored to be the "X" opponent for Shinsuke Nakamura at the next big New Japan show, it's going to be important for K-Dojo to elevate some guys to main event status to fill any voids that may open if those two ever leave. Building Takizawa is a great start, and after the main event Hiro Tonai came out to challenge Takizawa for his first defense, which should help Tonai's development also. Fun times in K-Dojo overall.
Sleep well champ, you've earned it!
