JC: This was nuts with Shibata walking to the ring covered in bandages to sell the effects of the tournament. He quickly went after Yano trying to end the match early, but Yano caught him with a groin shot behind the ref’s back. Shibata kicked out for a close nearfall, but then he tried his trademark sleeper and Yano fell on top of him and scored a three count. There was an audible gasp in the crowd and Yano got the heck out of the ring. Shibata sold being stunned and frustrated and kicked the guardrail on his way out.
