NOAH - Exceeding Our Dreams 8/1/2004

Pro Wrestling NOAH's big tour ending show featured what was supposed to be a 10-man lottery to determine 5 big singles matches for the show, hinting at a possible Kobashi/Akiyama rematch, but at the last minute it was turned into an 8-man lottery, with Akiyama instead defending his Global Hardcore Crown against his STERNESS tag partner Akitoshi Saito! Other highlights of the show included Rick Steiner bringing the WLW title back to the USA when he beat defending champion Daisuke Ikeda. The rest of the lottery matches look good too, and I definately will be getting a tape of this show when it becomes available.
Full results are as follows:
1. Jun Izumuda, Tsuyoshi Kikuchi & Kishin Kawabata beat Masao Inoue, Makoto Hashi & Kotaro Suzuki in 15:09 when Kikuchi used the Fireball-bomb on Suzuki.
2. Naomichi Marufuji & KENTA beat Muhammed Yone & Go Shiosaki in 11:22 when KENTA hit the Busaikyo Knee on Shiosaki
3. Takeshi Rikioh, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Takashi Sugiura & Masaji Aoyagi beat Richard Slinger, Juventud Guerrera, Ricky Marvin & Trevor Rhodes in 13:46 when Rikioh hit Rhodes with a Lariat.
4. Yoshinari Ogawa beat Tamon Honda in 4:15 with an inside cradle (sigh).
5. Yoshihiro Takayama beat Takuma Sano in 10:45 by referee stop.
6. Rick Steiner beat Daisuke Ikeda in 11:12 with a Death Valley Bomb to win the WLW title.
7. Kenta Kobashi beat Bison Smith in 17:04 with a Brainbuster.
8. Jun Akiyama beat Akitoshi Saito in 7:05 by KO to retain the GHC Openweight title (V3)
9. Mitsuharu Misawa VS Akira Taue went to a 30 minute draw.
