Klein evades the double stomp... but not the superkick! Mayu goes up again... double stomp off the top! Rather than go for the pin, she's headed up one more time. Frog splash hits! 1... 2...

WIN: Kelly Klein by submission
WOH Title Tournament, Semifinal: Tenille Dashwood vs. Sumie Sakai
Riccaboni points out that Sumie was part of the very first women's match in ROH history (way back at Road To The Title in 2002, if you were wondering, and no I didn't have to look it up, and yes there's probably some important piece of real-life knowledge that was shoved out of my brain to make room for that).
Sakai charges right at Dashwood, who ducks her lariat and hits a modified STO for a quick two count. Sakai back up with a twisting Fisherman's neckbreaker, and that gets a two count. Both women trading forearms. Dashwood gets the better of the exchange, charges off the ropes but Sakai charges at her and cuts her off. Dashwood does the same. Now Dashwood ramming Sakai's head into the top turnbuckle repeatedly, and transitions into a tarantula.

In between matches, Ian and Colt are breaking down the upcoming match when they're interrupted by a man wearing facepaint, what looks to be La Parka's gear from 1998, and speaking gibberish. OK, then.
We start out and Ishii firing away with forearms on Martinez. The big man doesn't budge. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Kota Ibushi vs. Adam Page
This match dovetails with the ongojng Omega-Cody feud, as Page has been the Bullet Club member most closely allied with Cody since the faction started to have dissension in January, while Ibushi is teaming with Omega in the recently reunited "Golden Lovers" team. Big pop for the Bullet Club music and Page, but a bigger one for Ibushi.
No Code of Honor for Page, as both men slow to engage. Crowd sounds hot and appears to be well-miced. Tie-up into the ropes, Page goes for the apparent clean break and gives Ibushi a shove. Kick by Page opens the door for a side headlock. Ibushi shoves him off, Page with the shoulder tackle but Ibushi immediately kips up. Another side headlock by Page, another shoulder tackle.

Page begging off, and another kick to the chest by Ibushi dumps him out to the floor. Ibushi goes for a shoulder block when Page gets back to the apron, Page ducks it, kicks Ibushi and drops him with a modified neckbreaker across the middle rope.

Ibushi goes for the Golden Triangle again, this time off the top rope, and he hits it beautifully. Back in the ring and Ibushi covers for a 2 and a half. Another exchange of reversals ends with Page hooking Ibushi and delivering a cradle tombstone for a very convincing false finish. Page going for Rite of Passage but Ibushi grabs the top rope to prevent it. Page chucked out to the apron, Ibushi clocks him with a backflip kick. Now both wrestlers are out on the apron. Ibushi teasing a piledriver, which leads to a state Commission comment from Riccaboni, but Page counters with a backdrop on the apron.

Ibushi and Page go to the sunset flip / rolling 2 counts spot, and Ibushi out of it into a deadlift German suplex for a very close near fall. Both men down as referee Paul Turner starts a standing 10 count. "Fight Forever" chant from the crowd. Now both men to their knees and trading forearms, to their feet and the exchange of strikes continues. Traditional exchanghe of forearms turns into Japanese style slaps. Ibushi gets the better of the slaps but when he comes off the ropes, Page clocks him with a forearm. When he goes to follow, Ibushi unloads with a spin kick to the side of the head. Ibushi with the Golden Star sit out powerbomb... Page kicks out at 2! Page avoids the Kamigoye, and takes a straitjacket German for another near fall. Ibushi keeps his grip, pulls Page around and into the Kamigoye for the three count.
WIN: Kota Ibushi
