Wrestling Dontaku 2011

Just got back from New Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestling Dontaku 2011 in Fukuoka. 
Quick and dirty results.

Nakanishi/Honma/Takahashi d. Jado/Gedo/Killer Rabbit
Taichi/Taka Michinoku d. Tiger Mask/Kushida
Yano/Ishii/Iizuka d. Fale/Tenzan/Inoue
Jushin Liger d. Mascara Dorado to retain the CMLL middleweight title.
Taguchi/Devitt d. Romero/Richards to retain the IWGP Jnr. Tag Titles
Anderson/Bernard d. Naito/Takahashi to retain the IWGP Tag Titles
Goto/Tonga d. Hashi/Suigura
Nagata d. Tanaka
Makabe d. Kojima. After the match Kojima was attacked by Taichi and Taka who were then joined by Minoru Suzuki. Makabe made the save.
Tanahashi d. Nakamura to retain the IWGP title. After the title presentation Goto came to the ring and floored Tanahashi with a punch. A backstage interview (shown on a video screen to the audience) set up Tanahashi/Goto for the next IWGP title defense.
Jushin Liger won the CMLL Middleweight title at Wrestling Dontaku last year when he beat Negro Casas.
Giant Bernard and Karl Anderson (Bad Intentions) were in a IWGP tag title match at the last Wrestling Dontaku but failed the win the titles. They eventually won them in June.
