Day 4 of NJPW Best of the Super Jr. 30 took place in Akita as Mike Bailey battled another star who is very familiar with IMPACT Wrestling, KUSHIDA. Entering this match with an impressive 3-0 record, Bailey looked to continue his winning ways. It didn’t take long for the action to spill outside the ring where Bailey inadvertently kicked the steel ring post. This allowed KUSHIDA to gain control as he targeted the leg of Bailey. Back in the ring, Bailey fought through the pain, taking KUSHIDA off his feet with a series of kicks. Bailey then drove his knees into KUSHIDA’s chest before locking in an armbar. Bailey looked to finish off the match with Ultima Weapon but KUSHIDA evaded the attack. KUSHIDA then secured a heel lock submission, forcing Bailey to tap out. After suffering his first defeat, Bailey now sits at 3-1 in the tournament.
