This would be Kento’s third consecutive time in the finals. In comparison, winning it last year while this being Zeus’ second time going to the finals. After an incredible match between the two, the leader of Purple Haze, Zeus, would come out as the winner of the Champion Carnival. This is Zeus’ first time winning the tournament. It was needed to help elevate him back to the top and make his unit, Purple Haze. The process would then make him look more like a threat.

Now that Zeus has won the Carnival, he has an opportunity to fight the Triple Crown Champion, Suwama. This takes place for the championship on October 17th in Zeus’ hometown, Osaka. Zeus made the champ tap during the tournament and injured his arm. So how can he defeat him again where it counts? Congratulations to Zeus on winning the Champion Carnival; hope to see him win the title again and get a proper reign.
