This is the synopsis for the promos from the DESTRUCTION in Beppu 9/17 show in Oita Beppu B-Con Plaza, Beppu.
Yuya Uemura, Manabu Nakanishi, and Yuji Nagata (O) def. Yota Tsuji (X), Satoshi Kojima, and Hiroyoshi Tenzan via Nagata Lock to submission
Tenzan laments that they haven’t managed any wins since Kojima’s return but they have plento of time to turn it around. Kojima encourages the Young Lions on the tour. Tsuji vows revenge on his opponents.
Uemura prases his mentors. Nakanishi and Nagata offer light criticism.
Ren Narita and David Finlay (O) def. Shota Umino (X) and Toa Henare via Prima Nocta to pinfall
Finlay’s bell was rung by a dropkick. He says Shota will be a star after his excursion.
Henare praises a bloody Narita’s effort. He says he got his ass kicked by Fale every day but he persevered.
Ayato Yoshida def. Takashi Iizuka via disqualification
Ryuske Taguchi, KUSHIDA, Tiger Mask (O), and Jyushin Thunder Liger def. SHO, YOH, Rocky Romero (X), and Will Ospreay via Tombstone Piledriver to pinfall
Ospreay is saddened because when he saw Taguchi with the rugby ball that he knew he could be the leader of the RPG3K plus one rugby team. He is incredulous that no one in CHAOS knows the rules of rugby. Rocky says he thought they were playing baseball. Ospreay heads to the back to strategize on their next game in the New Japan Rugby Cup. SHO and YOH continue to have no idea whatsoever what Rocky is talking about because they don’t understand any English. YOH notes that SHO is cut and asks if he is angry. SHO assures YOH that he is not because it’s only his body. SHO tells the media they are preparing for upcoming battles including the Junior Tag Tour.
Tiger Mask is happy that he has snagged two wins in three matches since returning from England. He says he is moving forward to Tag League. Taguchi praises his tag partners. He hopes KUSHIDA will take back the Junior Heavyweight Championship. KUSHIDA notes that Ospreay is focused on Ibushi and people seem to be interested but he is facing Ishii in Ireland and suspects it won’t get much coverage.
Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Lance Archer (O) def. Chuckie T and Beretta (X) via Killer Bomb to pinfall
Chuck says “everyone dies my little ass” because clearly they are still alive. Beretta says that they have another match against them coming up. He instructs Archer to take his “long leg, horse hair having self” to Kobe. They say it’s insane that Davey has that haircut.
Archer says that this is that happens when you give KES time off. Tag team gold will be theirs. Smith says they are badder than ever and their time off only made them stew on the situation.
El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, and Zack Sabre Jr. (O) def. BUSHI, SANADA, and EVIL (X) via Jackknife to pinfall
BUSHI claims he’s worthy of a title shot no matter who questions it. EVIL is impressed with Sabre but says he will pay. He wants a singles match with ZSJ.
El Desperado says they can win in their sleep with Zack. Sabre says that L.I.J. can’t touch them and everyone is bored. He asks what EVIL knows about evil, that Suzuki-gun are the experts on evil. Despy questions BUSHI while Zack signs off “Happy Halloween.”
Juice Robinson (O), Tomoaki Honma, Togi Makabe, and Hiroshi Tanahashi def. Jay White, YOSHI-HASHI (X), Toru Yano, and Kazuchika Okada via Pulp Friction to pinfall
White blames YOSHI-HASHI for White striking him (even though he blamed Okada for the same yesterday). Okada doesn’t care what YOSHI-HASHI wants to do and he can’t be bothered with CHAOS drama and that he will focus on Kobe.
Juice is excited about his win and says that Cody can come get it in Long Beach. Makabe is just excited to see shit pop off. Honma worries he is dragging the team down. Makabe slaps him and tells him to remain confident. Honma says he feels like he threw cold water on Tanahashi but that he will persist. Tanahashi says he will make his desire happen in Kobe. He says his dream is far beyond the match with Okada and that he will grab it.
NEVER Openweight Championship: Taichi def. Hirooki Goto via Black Mephisto to pinfall
Miho and Taichi enter the room together. Taichi pitches the belt in front of the press and instructs the New Japan employees to pick it up. He forces the worker to say “this belt belongs to Taichi, the man who failed to make the G1.” He reiterates that the NJPW executives should apologize to him. He says that Taichi being left out of the G1 was the missed call of the century and that the belt and his fan support prove that. He’s cutting this promo standing on top of the NEVER Openweight belt. He says Goto can do whatever he wants with his life after this, that he doesn’t care. He notes that no one came to challenge him for the belt after the match like usual because the belt is valueless trash. He says he’ll take it home and give it away to someone and it will be over for good.
Tetsuya Naito def. Minoru Suzuki via Destino to pinfall
Naito asks in the ring if everyone enjoyed his first match in a year and a half in Beppu. He asks if the crowd notices someone missing from L.I.J. and says they will be 100% next time they return. He says he’s holding the mic every time they come back to Beppu.
Backstage Naito clearly looks exhausted. Naito has won two matches straight against Suzuki but it means nothing to him. He is intentionally being very vague in his promo and says that change is coming. He says he will see everyone at the show tomorrow and signs off.
