The tournament continued on Thursday from Iwate. 

Robbie Eagles vs. Master Wato headlined the show.  Four-time BOSJ winner Hiromu Takahashi vs. two-time BOSJ winner KUSHIDA was the semi-main event. 

BOSJ 30 night six 5/18 full results: 

– B Block: Master Wato defeated Robbie Eagles

– A Block: Hiromu Takahashi defeated KUSHIDA via count out

– B Block: YOH defeated Francesco Akira

– A Block: Titan defeated Lio Rush

– B Block: El Desperado defeated Clark Connors

– A Block: SHO defeated Taiji Ishimori

- B Block: Kevin Knight defeated Dan Moloney

– A Block: TJP defeated Ryusuke Taguchi

– B Block: BUSHI defeated Yoshinobu Kanemaru

– A Block: Mike Bailey defeated DOUKI

Kevin Kelly spent some time speaking about "Superstar" Billy Graham and the influence he had on wrestling during the show. 

BUSHI finally got in the win column when he picked up a victory over Yoshinobu Kanemaru in a quick match. Ryusuke Taguchi, however, dropped to 0-6 after a loss to TJP. 

The finish of Taiji Ishimori vs. SHO was interesting. EVIL, who was seconding SHO, tried throwing in the towel when SHO had Ishimori in a choke. It wasn't clear if EVIL was trying to throw in the towel on behalf of Ishimori but in the confusion, SHO rolled up Ishimori for the win. EVIL and Ishimori then exchanged words after the match but all three eventually gave each other the Bullet Club Too Sweet hand signal.  

After dropping his match to El Desperado, Clark Connors attacked several young lions at ringside. He then turned his attention back to Desperado but Desperado countered his attack and ended up hitting Connors with a chair. 

YOH defeated Francesco Akira with a pinning combination in a match that only went about a minute and a half. 

Hiromu Takahashi defeated KUSHIDA via count out. Both Takahashi and KUSHIDA were on the outside and had to rush back into the ring as the count got to 19. Takahashi made it and KUSHIDA didn't. 

Master Wato defeated Robbie Eagles in the main event with a German suplex. As a results, there is now a four way tie atop B Block with Eagles, Wato, YOH, and El Desperado are all at eight points.
