The Douki (with J5Gs included) shampoo commercial. I think it might only be for the G-1 shows - as in on the screen at the arena during breaks. Not sure. Anyway, he says that it seems familiar and that's because it's basically the current Merit shampoo spot with the J5Gs swapped in (someone links it in response to Douki). And Douki gets to do the mom's hair toss at the end.

The serious important announcement was about a hashtag

It was obvious going to happen, but Yuma Aoyagi retained the Triple Crown. Sumawa is the next challenger.

If Suwama loses then "old"AJPW is done, and Yuma becomes the symbol of AJPW. Yuma seems to be face of the new era (not ace though).

Might be Suwama's last time challenging for the Triple Crown.

AJPW

Both set of tag champs retained their respective tag titles. Yuji Nagata and Honda are the next challengers for the World tags.

DDT

Zack Ryder won the Universal title, his next challenger is MAKI ITOH. You can tell Maki Itoh will be replacing Saki Akai as the Chyna of DDT. Yanno woman competing with men in ring, not the muscles.

Zack appeared with a replica of the WWE Women's tag belt in tribute of his wife.

Other stuff happened but you can do it yourself.

After 23 years, Zero-One's ring announcer Okki Okita announced that he will graduate from Zero-One on the finals of the Fire Festival. He originally worked for AJW starting in 1994. Then he left for アルシオン or Alcyon.

There should be a Beat the Clock rule for this one like the GUNTHER/Gable match on Raw last night. How fast does it take to get to Nagoya from Tokyo on the bullet?

If they stick to the schedule, Nozomi 371 (for some reason that poster has it as 317 but the site says 371) leaves Tokyo at 13:09 and arrives in Nagoya at 14:45. That is with two scheduled stops towards the beginning of the trip. I think that's why they chose this route because it will go over an hour uninterrupted by any stops.

Before people get too excited, they are only renting one car for this. They won't be fighting throughout the entire train.

Suwama vs Jun shoot stuff going on in articles.

Anyway for DDT, I haven't found or seen the Main Road term brought up in awhile for DDT. Was it dropped? I'm gonna have to refer Jun's teachings as Baba-ism, which is what it is generically called in Japan. The term Royal Road is only for AJPW primarily. 

The comedy and Sports Entertainment has it own term, 文化系プロレス or Cultural Pro Wrestling.
