Most of the guys in the tourney are youngsters, thus the "Neo Blood" (New blood) moniker.

Some general info:
- Takahashi has been Pancrase's HW champion for quite a while now;
- Shibuya & Yamamiya are more or less gate keepers (although either one of them has it in them to pull of an upset, as shown by Kei)
- Marquadt has been heavily pimped as the Pancrase's new MW (actaully WW by our standards) Kingpin, recently defeating long time champion Kiuma Kunioku & top ranked contender Izuru Takeuchi. However, the loss to Yamamiya is a bit of a shock (as is his underwhelming performance at ADCC).
