Announced Attendance: Unknown

Muta jumps Apolo before the bell rings, punches by Muta in the corner and he kicks Apolo in the stomach. Kicks by Muta, Irish whip, but Apolo ducks the lariat and punches Muta back. Eye rake by Muta and he knocks Apolo into the corner. Apolo switches positions with Muta and chops him back, Irish whip, reversed, but Apolo hits a big boot and Muta rolls out of the ring (there is lots of ringside area as they are in a basketball court). Chops by Apolo on the outside, Irish whip attempt, but Muta reverses it and Apolo goes into the ring post. Nosawa punches Apolo on the outside until the referee tells him to stop. Muta grabs Apolo and throws him into the ring post again and rakes him in the eyes. Elbow to the back of the head by Muta and he finally slides Apolo back into the ring. Snapmare by Muta and he hits the Flashing Elbow. Cover, but it barely gets a two count. Muta pulls back on Apolo's leg and he applies an STF. Sleeperhold by Muta but Apolo hulks up and elbows out of it. Apolo goes off the ropes and he hits a cutter. Back up, punches by Apolo, Irish whip, and he hits a back bodydrop. Punches by Apolo, Irish whip, and he hits a facecrusher. Nosawa comes onto the apron but Apolo punches him off. Apolo puts Muta on his shoulders and goes for the TKO, but Muta slides off and sprays mist in his face. This isn't allowed in WWC, and Muta is disqualified. Your winner: Apolo

Post match: Muta hits a Shining Wizard onto Apolo and rolls out of the ring, acting like he won. Which I guess in a way he did.

Match Thoughts: Even though it was a short match, Muta had his working boots on as he wasn't just coasting like wrestlers sometimes do in these situations. It is odd to see the mist lead to a DQ, but it is usually more strictly disallowed in other promotions. It was too short to say much about, but the crowd was into it and Apolo got in some good offense before Muta had to resort to his tricks to end the match. A fun little match but obviously nothing that someone has to go out of their way to see. Score: 5.5
