The elimination match is up next with Artists of STARDOM Champions Tam Nakano, Mina Shirakawa, and Sayaka Unagi (in her hometown of Osaka) defending vs. Mayu Iwatani, Starlight Kid, and Gokigen Death. Pin falls, submissions, count outs, disqualifications, and getting thrown over the top to the floor are the rules of eliminations.
