NJPW Road to Tokyo Dome Results

December 15, 2018
Tokyo, Japan @ Korakuen Hall

— Ren Narita & Teruaki Kanemitsu vs Shota Umino & Ayato Yoshida fought to a time limit draw

— Roppongi 3K & Rocky Romero def. Jushin Thunder Liger, Tiger Mask & Toa Henare

— Hirooki Goto & Tomohiro Ishii def. Minoru Suzuki & Takashi Iizuka

— Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito, BUSHI & Shingo Takagi) def. Suzuki-Gun (El Desperado, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Taichi)

— Chris Jericho came through the crowd with a steel chair and attacked Naito from behind, and then attacked the other two LIJ members. He hit Naito with a Codebreaker before yelling into a camera and arguing with LIJ fans on the way out.

— Bullet Club (Jay White, Bad Luck Fale, Taiji Ishimori & Guerrillas of Destiny) def. CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, Togi Makabe, Toru Yano, Tomoaki Honma & KUSHIDA)

— Okada attacked White after the match and started going crazy on Bullet Club. The numbers eventually got to him, and White dropped him with the Bladerunner while Ishimori took out KUSHIDA.

— The Golden Lovers (Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi) def. Hiroshi Tanahashi & Will Ospreay

— All four guys were beaten down and exhausted after the match. Ibushi and Ospreay exchanged words but they seemed to be respectful and were checking to make sure they were both okay. Omega and Tanahashi had a staredown, but that too stayed fairly respectful and the challengers left without much ado. Omega cut the post-show promo thanking the fans and saying he believes his vision for pro wrestling is correct, and Tanahashi is wrong, and he may do one or two “bad things” at Wrestle Kingdom if he has to. He then did an Elvis impression and led the entire crowd in singing “I’m Dreaming Of a White Christmas” while Korakuen Hall dropped fake snow on everyone from the ceiling.
