1. Super J-Cup Semifinal Round match: Dragon Lee vs NWA World Historic Middleweight Champion Caristico

Winner: Dragon after Dragon nailed Caristico with The PK and covered, Caristico kicked out at 2, leading to Lee quickly following with Desnucadora and holding on for the 3.

2. Super J-Cup Semifinal Round match: IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay vs IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion “The Rock and Roller” El Phantasmo

Winner: Phantasmo after Ospreay blasted Phantasmo with a pull-in Knee Strike, but realized the Referee was still down, so he unloaded with Kawada Kicks and then a nasty Head Kick combo, but Phantasmo staggered to his feet. Ospreay drilled him with a Hook Kick, but grabbed Phantasmo’s hand and stopped him from falling, pulling him up and following with The Os Cutter, which he held on to and rolled into The Storm Breaker, just as Taiji Ishimori interfered and broke it up. Ishimori used The Bloody Cross on Will, allowing Phantasmo to use The CR2 and, as Referee Marty Isami rolled into the ring, Phantasmo covered and got the 3!

3. Super J-Cup Final: Dragon Lee vs IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion “The Rock and Roller” El Phantasmo

Bullet Club members “Switchblade” Jay White, Taiji Ishimori & Gedo came down to ringside, only for Red Shoes Umino to confront White and throw the whole crew out!

Winner and Super J-Cup 2019 Champion: Phantasmo after Dragon pulled a BLOODY Phantasmo to the top and slapped him down, in Ghetto Stomp position, Phantasmo pulled himself up and pulled off Lee’s mask, bringing the Referee over. Phantasmo pushed away the Ref, rolled to his feet and PUNCHED Lee in the nuts, before climbing to the top and using a RIDICULOUS Middle Rope Springboard Torture Rack Neckbreaker, before hitting The CR2 and covering for the 3.

Jushin “Thunder” Liger comes to the ring to present Phantasmo the trophy and Golden Jacket. Phantasmo disrespects Liger and challenges him to a match, before Liger retires. Phantasmo runs his mouth, bringing out Will Ospreay, but Taiji Ishimori joined in and Will was at odds, until Robbie Eagles ran out to make the save!
