The following changes have been made to those cards as a result:

On August 27:

  • Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs. Yuya Uemura and Yota Tsuji has been changed to a singles match between Tsuji and Uemura
  • Kojima has replaced Kidd in a match teaming with Tomoaki Honma and Yuji Nagata vs. YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii, and Hirooki Goto

Gabriel has been working as a young lion since the start of the year, making his in-ring debut at Road to the New Beginning.
