began with an in-ring interview with one-half of the SSS Tag Team Champions
, Sal Paradise
. Sal declared that his tag team partner (who he demanded to be addressed as Comrade Kinniku Mike
) would not only beat Varia NOAH
to win the SSS Championship
, but the two of them would hold all of the gold in SSS
and that the Unholy Alliance
would also add the Wrestling Witan World Heavyweight Championship
to their haul of Pro Wrestling No Kachi Heavyweight
and Tag Team Titles
Sal then vowed to beat Comrade Kinniku Mike's estranged brother Mike Ishijima
in less than 3 minutes (which he did). After Sal's victory, both he and Mike Ishijima were attacked by Varia NOAH. NOAH himself told the crowd that he had brought back up in case Comrade Kinniku Mike's tag partner and brother had any ideas of interfering in main event.
2. Levi Astor Rothschild
continued to make enemies with his fragrant rule-breaking during his match against Eivion Thanatos
. Before the match, LAR introduced the crowd to his manservant Anwin Gay Pennyworth
, and then warned the crowd that if they continued to subject him to "racist and anti-Semitic abuse", he would sue SSS's corporate management for failing to provide a safe-working environment. The riled-up crowd chanted "arseholes" at both LAR and AGP, and were further angered by the DQ finish of the LAR-Thanatos match. An incensed LAR then warned the crowd that there was CCTV footage of them and that he would demand that Greater Manchester Police
use it to prosecute members of the crowd for 'hate crime'.
3. The WW World Heavyweight Champion Miss Fenton
dubbed herself "The Rani"
before her title defence against Talia
, whose boyfriend's nose she broke on the previous show (SSS-22
). Fenton also predicted that Comrade Kinniku Mike would not only beat Varia NOAH to become the next SSS Champion, he would also cripple and the end the career of the man who hates with a passion. "I was once but a leaner, now I am the master. The Rani of professional wrestling."
4. Comrade Kinniku Mike was introduced first to the crowd for the main event, wearing a Bane
mask from the recent â€œThe Dark Knight Risesâ€
movie and carrying his SSS and PWNK Tag belts. He was accompanied by his co-champion Sal Paradise, who had his belts around his waist while waving a North Korean
flag. NOAH made his entrance with the SSS Title and introduced his back-up, the six-time Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt
. Bolt (who hopes to play for Manchester United Football Club
) got the loudest pop of the night.
As soon as NOAH entered the ring, he and Mike got into a fist fight and no sooner than the bell to begin the match had rung, both men ended up brawling outside the ring. Mike eventually grabbed NOAH and rammed him into a steel ring post before re-entering the ring to beat the twenty count and win the match. Sal Paradise went to collect the SSS Title, but was prevented from doing so by Usain Bolt. The Bolt-Sal confrontation soon spilt over into a brawl between the two ring seconds, before the referee intervened and ejected both men from ringside. Bolt and Sal resumed their brawl until security arrived to separate them and lead the two backstage. Amid the confusion, NOAH had crawled back into the ring, only to be dropped on his head by Mike with the Drill Dozer
. Mike then collected the SSS Title and both sets of SSS and PWNK Tag belts from ringside and celebrated back in the ringâ€¦ until the referee took the SSS Title off him and told him that the belt canâ€™t change hands on a count out. A furious Mike punched the official to the ground and finished him off with a vicious Drill Dozer. Mike grabbed a microphone from ringside and told the crowd that he wasnâ€™t leaving until the match was re-started.
A new referee dashed into the ring to re-start the match, which lasted only eight seconds when NOAH hit Mike with a low blow to cause a disqualification. To add insult to injury, NOAH then hit Mike again with a short diving head butt to Mikeâ€™s groin. NOAH then grabbed his belt and celebrated, until a pissed off Mike blasted him with a second Drill Dozer. When Mike went to collect the SSS Title, The new referee stopped him and told him that the SSS Title couldnâ€™t change hands on a disqualification. A furious Mike reacted to this news by nailing this official with a Drill Dozer. Eventually Stuart Marshall
entered the fray to address Mike â€“ the match would be restarted one final time, the SSS Title would change hands on a count out or a disqualification and the he (Stuart) himself would take over as the match official.
The match re-started for a second-and-final time with Mike dominating the first-third of the match. NOAH used his experience and tenacity to work his way back into the match and take control of the second-third of the match, but Mike wouldn't given in and was eventually able to re-assert his earlier dominance in the final-third. Once again, the battle spilled outside of the ring and Mike blasted NOAH with a third Drill Dozer (his fifth of the evening if you count the referees that he attacked), this time through the announcersâ€™ table. Wanting to a add an exclamation mark to his impending victory, Mike dragged a limp NOAH back into the ring, where Mike was preparing to finish NOAH off with a fourth-and-final Drill Dozer. As Mike was about to do so, NOAH shockingly managed to roll Mike up with a Small Package
to win the match and retain his belt for a record fifth time. Shocked and incensed by NOAHâ€™s plagiarism of Bret â€œHit Manâ€ Hart
â€™s victory over Kevin Nash
at Survivor Series â€™95
. Mike blasted NOAH with yet another Drill Dozer, before dropping stand-in official Stuart with a seventh Drill Dozer of the evening. By this point, a wild Mike had lost all self-control and put NOAH through the ring canvas with a Power Surge
. Once he had cooled down enough to regain an even-temperament, Mike grabbed the SSS Title, arrogantly held it aloft and made his way the back, taking both sets of SSS and PWNK Tag belts plus NOAHâ€™s SSS strap away with him.
