Dynamite Kansai becomes a Buddhist monk
Next was Hiroyo Matsumoto vs Hiren as part of the D-Fix/Jungle Jack feud. Aja Kong was in Matsumoto's corner and Mika Nishio was in Hiren's corner. Looking at Hiren, I guess part of the deal with Sendai Girls is OZ can't change her costume. She needs to look trashier to be part of D-Fix. Matsumoto chops Hiren followed by a chinlock and a surfboard turned into chimlock while sitting on her back. Hiren escapes and stomps Matsumoto and traps her in the corner and stands on her. The ref breaks it up and they exchange blows. Matsumoto goes to the top rope but Nishio knocks her off. Hiren applies the ankle lock. Matsumoto gets to the ropes but Hiren stomps her ankle. Hiren hits a missile dropkick and then gets a two count with a victory roll. Matsumoto hits a missile dropkick followed by a stomach breaker and an Argentinian backbreaker.

Next was Kyoko & Takako Inoue vs Toshie Uematsu & Ran YuYu. The match begins with Uematsu having trouble with Kyoko's size. But she does get Kyoko on the bottom rope with a facewash. Kyoko comes back with a stinkface followed by the cattle mutilation hold. Kyoko gets her in a camel clutch and Takako comes in and delivers a kick to Uematsu's chest. Takako comes in and after a double team beatdown, Takako applies the STF. Ran kicks Takako from the outside and then Takako is double teamed on the ropes. Uematsu hits a missile dropkick. Ran tags in and traps Takako in the corner and gives her a facewash. Uematsu tagged in and they criss crossed the ropes until Uematsu got a two count with a rollup. Ran tags in and Takako gets her in the STF. Takako attempts a move from the top but Ran gets out of the way and Kyoko tags in. Ran dropkicks Kyoko and then Uematsu hits a missile dropkick. Uematsu goes to the top again and Takako knocks her off. Kyoko lariats Uematsu but Ran comes in and drops Uematsu on Kyoko for two. Kyoko hits a double lariat and wins over Uematsu with a power bomb at 15:43.
Next is Chikayo Nagashima & Sinoko Kato vs Ayako Hamada & AKINO. Of course there's no heat for this match. It was put together as a time waster. I guess they could do worse things. So it starts with Ayako & Nagashima avoiding each other's moves and they stop and look at each other. This continues with attempted brainbusters but Kato tags in and delivers a kick followed by a double facebuster. Kato hits a baseball slide followed by a snap mare and soccer ball kicks to Ayako's back. Ayako hits a spin kick to the stomach and hits a brainbuster for two. AKINO tags in and soccer ball kicks Kato's back followed by a low dropkick to the corner. AKINO applies a camel clutch turned into a surfboard. Ayako comes in and they whip Kato into the corner. Ayako follows with a body attack and AKINO hits a dropkick followed by a facewash. Kato comes back and they exchange kicks. AKINO is whipped into the corner and Kato follows with a heel drop and AKINO sits in the corner. Kato hits a German suplex and flies onto AKINO from the top. But then they all go to the floor and AKINO hits a missile dropkick on AKINO and Ayako hits them both with a plancha over the top rope to the floor followed by a moonsault. Back in the ring, Ayako & AKINO apply a double team Rita Romero Special on Nagashima. The ref breaks it up. Nagashima hits a hurricanrana on AKINO. Ayako comes in and they double twist Nagashima's arms but she flips out of it and Nagashima exchanges kicks with AKINO. AKINO hits a dropkick for two.
This is very much a seesaw battle. Nagashima is whipped into the ropes and hit by rapid fire body attacks. Ayako hits a missile dropkick. AKINO comes in with a spin kick, traps Nagashima in the ropes and Ayako hits another missile dropkick. AKINO follows with a flying body press. Nagashima gets her knees up to foil Ayako's moonsault press. Nagashima gets a two with a hurricanrana followed by a uranage and a diving foot stamp.

AKINO dropkicks Kato but the followup hurricanrana is broken up by Nagashima and Kato gets the win with a hold down pin at 20:30.
Now we have this match between Aja Kong & Manami Toyota where the loser loses her name. Don't ask me what that name will be. I don't know. Toyota begins by hitting a German suplex on Aja. Then she ties up Aja in the ropes and hits a dropkick after bouncing off the ropes. When she tries it again, Aja gets loose and hits a lariat. Toyota blocks Aja's backfist. Aja hits another lariat and gets Toyota in a double toehold. Toyota gets to the ropes but Aja kicks her in the chest and Toyota rolls to the outside. They go for a test of strength. This goes on for a while until Toyota walks the ropes and jumps onto Aja. Aja counters with a backfist followed by an avalanche style backdrop for two. Toyota does the rolling cradle then goes for the moonsault press but gets the knees. Toyota rolls to the outside and Aja follows her and hits her with a steel chair and throws her into the ringside seats. She hits her over the head with the metal can. Aja hits three vertical brainbusters but only gets a one count each time. Aja hits a diving elbow drop but Toyota does a no sell. Aja hits a German suplex.

Toyota hits a missile dropkick but Aja counters with the backfist followed by a diving elbow drop for two. Toyota blocks a backfist and hits a brainbuster for two followed by the Japanese Ocean Queen Bee Bomb for two. Aja hits the backfist. Then they hit each other with simultaneous backfists. Aja comes off the ropes and hits the backfist for the win at 19:21. Aja says afterwards that she will be Aja Kong forever. I don't know what Toyota's name will be. Nobody has said anything yet and OZ made a point of saying that on their blog. So something's up. We just don't know what yet.
So now we have Carlos Amano & Dynamite Kansai defending the OZ Academy Tag Team Championships two of three falls against Mayumi Ozaki & KAORU. Whoever loses each fall gets her head shaved. I expected D-Fix to win. You have to give the heels something to keep the angle going. D-Fix attacks before the bell and Ozaki hits Amano with a chair and Kansai gets thrown out of the ring and is attacked by Police & Mika Nishio. Kansai is still outside while D-Fix beat on Amano. Police hits her with a steel chair and KAORU hits her with the desk board. Ozaki, KAORU & Police power bomb Amano. KAORU misses a moonsault press but Ozaki nails Amano with a backfist and KAORU's excalibur gets a two count. Ozaki hits Amano with a chain covered backfist and D-Fix continues to beat Amano with the chain. But Amano comes back with a flying lariat on Ozaki followed by the Carlos Ghosn but D-Fix interferes. Ozaki hits the Ozakick followed by a Fujiwara armbar. Amano comes back with a flying lariat and a hammerlock. Ozaki attempts the Ozakick but Amano gets her in an ankle lock. Kansai is back and hits Ozaki with a bomber kick followed by a backdrop suplex for two. Police comes in but Kansai clocks him. The crowd goes nuts. Kansai hits a Splash Mountain for two. She goes to the top for a diving foot stamp but Nishio grabs her foot. Sonoko Kato grabs Nishio and Hiren grabs her. Kansai falls to the floor. KAORU hits her with the desk board and Nishio hits her with the chair. Ozaki throws Amano into a pillar and then goes after Kansai.

Kansai gets Ozaki up for the splash mountain but Ozaki gets out of it. She gets Kansai in a dragon sleeper. Kansai gets to the ropes but KAORU hits her with the desk board. Kansai lands outside and is beaten by the steel chair. KAORU sets her up on a table and drives her through the table with the Valkyrie splash. Now there's a ladder in the ring. Kansai is tossed back into the ring and KAORU hits a moonsault press off the ladder for two. Ozaki hits Kansai with the backfist and KAORU hits her with the desk board. Takako Inoue kicks Kansai and then gets her with her stun gun. KAORU rolls her up for two. Kansai lifts KAORU up for the splash mountain but KAORU counters with a hurricanrana for the first fall at 21:11. Dynamite Kansai has her head shaved. D-Fix has a great time.
KAORU is laughing and KANSAI is angry. Amano hits a flying lariat on Ozaki & KAORU followed by an avalanche style brainbuster on Ozaki. Kansai follows with a bomber kick on Ozaki and then KAORU. Kansai lifts KAORU on her shoulders and Amano hits a lariat. Kansai no sells KAORU's desk board shot and nails KAORU with a lariat and a bomber kick. Outside the ring, Kansai places KAORU on a table and lands a diving foot stamp. Nishio attacks Kansai but is rebuffed. Kansai hits KAORU with a splash mountain on the floor followed by a bomber kick. Back in the ring, she hits another splash mountain. But instead of going for the pin, she goes for a diving foot stamp. Ozaki & Nishio save KAORU. Ozaki hits Kansai with an avalanche style brainbuster. Nishio holds her leg and Ozaki hits two backfists. Amano counters with the Carlos Ghosn. While Chikayo Nagashima holds back Police & Takako, Kato slides a table into the ring. Kansai piledrives Ozaki through the table. She gets her up for the splash mountain but Ozaki wriggles out of it and pins Kansai with a small package at 7:26. Mayumi Ozaki & KAORU are the new OZ Academy Tag Team Champs. They proceed to tease Kansai about her Buddhist monk look. Ozaki says that now Kansai is a Buddhist monk, maybe she should retire from wrestling. Kansai said she'll make her own decisions. Amano promised the crowd that Kansai would return. A couple of days later, OZ Academy announced that Kansai told them she is not mentally prepared to compete and is off future shows indefinitely. I expect Kansai to return but who does she go after? She could be as pissed with Amano as she is with D-Fix. This should be very interesting.
