The match starts with all men paying their respects to Tajiri, but Arez breaks that trust and the match is underway. There’s a great athletic duel between Arez and Aramis. Reed takes control with a guillotine leg drop. Tajiri gives some lethal kicks to his opponents. “Tajiri” chants. Aramis and Tajiri go back and forth. Tajiri gets dropkicked out. A series of suicide dives take us to our first commercial break.
Back from it, Reed hits a flying ace crusher to the outside. No Cap Splash to Aramis, but a buzzsaw kicks saves the match. Brainbuster to Reed. He covers, but Arez makes the save.
Aramis gets a near fall on Arez, but Tajiri saves it once again. Tajiri locks in the tarantula on Aramis as Arez kicks Aramis in the chest. Arez holds Myron Reed upside down on the second rope as Tajiri kicks away at Myron’s lower chest. Soon, it’s Aramis and Arez going back and forth. Reed gets caught with a kick on the apron. Arez dives onto Tajiri while Aramis dives onto Reed. Aramis hits a running Spanish Fly onto Arez. They continue to fight it out in the ring as Arez hits a modified Michinoku Driver on Aramis. Kick out. Arez goes for a top rope splash but Reed catches him with a cutter. A Cap’n Crunch slam by Reed downs Arez, but once again Tajiri saves the bout. All of a sudden, as the ref almost gets collided into, Tajiri green mists Reed. He gives him a buzzsaw kick and he covers: 1-2-3.
WINNER and NEW MLW World Middleweight Champion: Tajiri
