NJPW Destruction In Kobe Results: Okada Vs. Tanahashi, CHAOS Fractures, Jr. Heavyweight Title Tourny

NJPW Destruction in Kobe took place earlier today with Hiroshi Tanahashi defeating Kazuchika Okada in the main event to retain his rights for a title shot at the Tokyo Dome in January. In the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title Tournament, KUSHIDA defeated BUSHI. KUSHIDA will now wait to see who wins between Marty Scurll and Will Ospreay, which will take place at Fighting Spirit Unleashed on September 30. The finals will go down at King of Pro-Wrestling on October 8.

After the main event, Jay White ran to the ring, took out Tanahashi, Rocky Romero, and then went after Okada, obviously making his exit from CHAOS. Although still friends at the time, Okada had recently split from his manager, Gedo, but Gedo ended up turning on Okada by hitting him in the back with a chair. Gedo then gave White the briefcase and said he'll get a shot at Tanahashi next.
