NJPW SSE UK night two results: Ishii vs. Suzuki, Okada vs. ZSJ

Submitted by James Kata

NJPW's Strong Style Evolved UK weekend wrapped up in the Manchester area on Sunday.

- The Great O-Khan (Tomoyuki Oka) defeated Dan Duggan

O-Khan won with Mongolian chops off the middle rope. Oka’s gimmick is some sort of mystical wizard type thing, but people weren’t buying it and kept chanting "genie pants."

- Yuji Nagata defeated Shota Umino

Nagata submitted him with a crossface. Nagata came off like a total superstar and Umino did really well.

- El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Takashi Iizuka defeated Gedo, Toru Yano & YOSHI-HASHI

They had a comedy/nothing match, ending when Desperado rolled up Gedo. Yano was really over.

- WALTER defeated Yujiro Takahashi

WALTER hit a powerbomb for the finish. There were lots of stiff chops from both guys, but it was a pretty one-sided match.

- Taichi defeated Will Ospreay

Taichi picked up the win with a roll-up after Kanemaru interfered. Ospreay was crazy over, but with this being a Taichi match there wasn't much to it.

- Revolution Pro Wrestling British Cruiserweight Champion David Starr defeated El Phantasmo, Tiger Mask IV, and Taiji Ishimori in a four-way match to retain his title

The crowd loved everyone but were really into Tiger Mask.

- Jay White defeated Kyle Fletcher

White hit the Blade Runner for the victory. Fletcher was a replacement for Chris Brookes, who was announced as being ill. The match was really good -- the best of the night until the two top matches. The crowd was hot for both guys.

- Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Kazuchika Okada

Sabre rolled up Okada and pinned him, which amazed everyone. The fans loved Sabre, but Okada was on a different level as a superstar. The audience gave him a standing ovation at the end. I'd put this at 4.5 stars.

- Minoru Suzuki defeated Tomohiro Ishii to win Revolution Pro Wrestling's Undisputed British Heavyweight Championship

Amazing match -- I'd go 4.75 stars. Suzuki was the clear favorite and won with a Gotch piledriver. There were standing ovations at multiple points, with the crowd popping huge for the title change.

WALTER came out and booted Ishii after the match before having a staredown with Suzuki.
