ChocoPro #204 was a one-game show that saw Best brothers, Mei Suruga and Baliyan Akkidefend the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship against CDKthe duo of Masahiro Takanashi and Chris Brooke. It was a competitive game that saw both teams go the distance. They were tied throughout, and given that their previous title match had ended in a draw, it was essential that this match see a clear winner. At the end of that endurance – and after a double pinfall on Suruga – it was Takanashi and Brookes who emerged as the new Asia Dream Tag Team Champions.
After the match, CDK addressed Best Bros on the carpet at Ichigaya Chocolate Square. Brookes said that while the Asia Dream Tag Team Championship may not have been the greatest or brightest belt he’s ever held, it meant so much to him because of what Suruga and Akki were able to. do it. He congratulated them on the matches they played as champions, showing them respect. CDK walked away from the mat to allow time for the top brothers as they were emotional about losing their title.
