All Japan 12/05 Results

All Japan's last big show of the year saw Toshiaki Kawada break Mitsuharu Misawa's Triple Crown defense record when he overcame the challenge of New Japan's Hiroyoshi Tenzan. The match was said to be a brutal slugfest that went over half and hour! Post match, they hinted at a possible IWGP VS Triple Crown match as Kensuke Sasaki (who work the semi-main of the show) confronted Kawada after the match.
The Kensuke Family ((or Sasaki Office) finally settled their feud with RO&D, Kensuke being the soul survivor of a big 10-person elimination tag. A lot of top rope toss out eliminations in this one, but Sasaki scored two decisive pinfalls in the end to win the match.
Keiji Mutoh brought back The Great Muta tonight to do battle with GREAT MUTA of the Love Machines! Muta even had a new demon-like mask on.
Satoshi Kojima continues his rise in the ranks, overcoming the Super Love Machine in singles competition.
And Vader made a successful return to Japan as he defeated young rookie Kohei Suwama in the first match of the youngster's 7-match trial series. Let's hope Vader sticks around for a while as it would be fun to see the big man in action again after such a long hiatus.
