IW19 Title Tournament B Block Semifinals: Suzu Suzuki vs. Satsuki Totoro vs. Maya Yukihi (winner faces Hamuko Hoshi for the vacant title)
Yukihi got the pin on Totoro after the swanton bomb. Totoro eliminated Suzuki about ten minutes into the match by tying her hands with zip ties on the guardrail to get the count out. Hoshi had a brief stare down with Yukihi afterwards. Nobody came out to untie Suzuki when it was over. She kicked at Yukihi as she was walking to the announcer desk for the post-match interview.
