Devil Masami's retirement show was on the 30th and drew a near sell-out to Korakuen. The show was produced by Chigusa Nagayo, was televised live on GAORA, and featured a live band playing the ring entrances. The opener featured Super Heel Devil Masami, KAORU, & Dump Matsumoto against Chigusa Nagayo (who couldn't resist a one-off comeback), Yumiko Hotta, and Meiko Satomura. Dump stabbed Chigusa in the forehead for old times sake and Super Heel gave Chigusa a Fire Valley for the win. Then there was a series of short matches featuring each of the active promotions, showcasing both veterans and youngsters. The semi-main was Mayumi Ozaki & Manami Toyota going to a draw against Chikayo Nagashima & Sonoko Kato and was said to be the match of the night. The finale was Devil with Dynamite Kansai & Carlos Amano against Aja Kong, Toshie Uematsu, and Ran Yu-Yu. Toshie got the privilege of ending Devil's 30 year career with her Dragon Suplex.
Misae Genki retired at NEO's year end show, drawing 1282 fans. After several opening matches, Misae Genki appeared in the middle of the show, wrestling a series of three singles matches. She beat her protege Aya Yuki with the G-Driver, then lost a brawl to TNA's Awesome Kong, which led to Kyoko Inoue being able to drop Genki in her finale match, winning the lariat-o showdown. The NEO tag titles changed hands, as the Revolucion Amandola heel team of Kyoko Kimura & Atsuko Emoto beat the NEO Machine Gunz (Tanny Mouse & Yuki Miyazaki). Nanae Takahashi kept the NEO/NWA Pacific singles belts, beating Haruka Matsuo.
