WRESTLER COMMENT

Taguchi:
‘Ah, the wonderful new Taguchi Japan member, David Finlay.’

Finlay:
‘I’m the Prince!’

Taguchi:
‘Foreign transfer, valuable in midfield, Prince… marvelous. Well, we didn't get the result we wanted in the singles match yesterday, but we are heading into the New Japan Cup, of course, that tournament to decide who the next Taguchi Japan member will be. I will be watching the lads closely. You know, end of the day, Taguchi Japan should have a rematch clause. I'm sure that the referees are going over the goal line footage. Taguchi Japan did win once, but on the day the result didn't go our way. I do want to exercise our rematch clause at some point.’

Nakanishi, Kawato neglected to comment.


Oka:
‘Dammit!’

Tenzan:
‘You're going to let yourself be stopped by a loss like this? Stand up, face forward and move on.’

Tenzan:
‘We came in today as champions after yesterday. Me and Koji still have a lot to do and need to really prove that we’re worthy of being champions. That and Honma really needs to come back soon. As long as he's gone, these belts are really his. There's a lot to live up to. So I really want him back, and until then we have to keep these.’

Kojima:
‘It’s been over three years without the belts, so it's absolutely a big deal and a big responsibility. These feel hugely precious to me. As far as Honma goes, the sympathy ended yesterday. Now it's up to him to get on his feet and come for these himself. I don't want to say I'm worried about him, or feel bad for him. This is the life we lead, and it has to be on him now, his will. I hope he can come for us.’
