Kuroda would take the opportunity of a hurt Hashimoto to try and get his own stiff shots in at Hashimoto, as well as getting back down on his feet with his lariats, but it would turn out to be a mistake, as it would only anger Hashimoto who would begin kicking away at Kuroda.

Kojima would not be able to prevent it though, as Kuroda would deliver the lariat to Kojima out of nowhere, but would try the lariat too quickly again, and out of nowhere be hit with Kojima's own lariat instead.

February 22, 2008 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, Masato Tanaka would end up taking the spot that Kanemura was originally to be apart of as he would team with Kuroda and Mammoth Sasaki to take on the team of Takashi Sasaki, Daisuke Sekimoto, and Yusaku Obata.

March 24, 2008 at Korakuen Hall, Kuroda would team up with fellow Mammoth Sasaki and Yusaku Obata to take on Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO, and Kankuro Hoshino in a battle of the former Apache Army/WMF workers in Big Japan as Mammoth would just be too powerful for the smaller Hoshino and put him away with the 29 Years Old. 

April 17, 2008 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, Kuroda would try promoting his own show under his own name as Tetsuhiro Kuroda Productions would try to fill the void of no Apache Army show for the month.

August 6, 2008 at Korakuen Hall, Kintaro Kanemura would debut his XWF promotion although it would turn out to be a complete disaster financially as they would only be able to just announce 700 fans for the show although it would be even less than that in reality. Kuroda would team up with Kanemura and Masato Tanaka in the main event to defeat the foreign team of Raven, the returning Super Leather, and Tracy Smothers after Kanemura would pin Smothers with the Blast YAMA Senton Special. The poor gate that the show would bring in would also cause even more heat towards Kanemura as his financial backers that he gotten would not pay many of the wrestlers causing many of the wrestlers to refuse to work with Kanemura again and causing the promotion to already be in trouble after just one show.

November 14, 2008 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, Kuroda would team with Mammoth Sasaki and Koji Nakagawa against the Apache Army members Takashi Sasaki, Jun Kasai, and The Winger in a Fluorescent Light Tubes Death Match.

December 25, 2008 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, the FMW Legends Army of Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Mammoth Sasaki, and Koji Nakagawa would team up for the last time as a group.

January 16, 2009 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, Kuroda would start back up with the new look Apache Army under new sponsors and Takashi Sasaki in complete control. Kuroda would remain loyal to the Apache Army but it was becoming more obvious that this wasn't the same Apache Army promotion that Kuroda started with. It was also that there were no real plans for Kuroda or any of the other former FMW wrestlers on the show as Takashi Sasaki would begin pushing his friends into the main event and booking the old FMW wrestlers in meaningless midcard matches. Kuroda would team up with Gosaku to take on Mammoth and Yoshihito Sasaki on the show with Mammoth getting the win over Gosaku after Mammoth would put away Gosaku with the Mammoth Home Run.

Kuroda would come out and hold back Kanemura as well and try to get him out of the ring as a furious Kanemura would throw his cigarette in the ring before finally leaving due while screaming how the Apache Army promotion was his promotion. This would upset the sponsors who were promised that Kintaro Kanemura would never appear for the Apache Army promotion with sponsors threatening to back out of the promotion once again. 

May 23, 2009 in Soka, Kuroda would return to HUSTLE for the first time since the Kanemura sexual harassment incident over 16 earlier.

September 23, 2009 in Shizuoka, Kuroda and Tanaka would reform their team once again for another special Fire Festival tag match. This time the opponents would be Shinjiro Otani and Ikuto Hidaka with the result once again seeing Otani put away Kuroda with the Spiral Bomb.

August 25, 2010 at the Shinjuku FACE, Kuroda would debut for Genichiro Tenryu's Tenryu Project promotion by teaming with Kintaro Kanemura and NOSAWA Rongai to challenge for the Tenryu Project Six Man Tag Team Titles against the champions of Genichiro Tenryu, Tatsutoshi Goto, and Daisuke Sekimoto with Tenryu just overpowering Kuroda and finishing him off with the lariat to retain the titles. 

September 6, 2010 at the Shinjuku FACE, Kuroda's first title reign in over five years would come to an end in less than a month after the team of Kuroda, NOSAWA Rongai, and Daisuke Sekimoto subbing for Macho Pump would end up losing at the next Mobius show to Masao Orihara, Dick Togo, and Buho Mochero after Orihara would pin NOSAWA with a Moonsault to win back the Apex of Triangle Titles. 

October 11, 2010 at the Shinjuku FACE, Kuroda and Kanemura would team up to take on the team of Shinjiro Otani and Masato Tanaka in a rematch of their 2002-2003 tag matches. Kuroda would mostly go at it against Shinjiro Otani and although Kuroda would come close to rolling up Otani with the Samson Clutch for the win, Otani would barely manage to kick out and eventually finish off Kuroda with the Spiral Bomb for the Emblem victory. 

Kintaro Kanemura would then announce the return to the Apache Army promotion in December 2010. Due to the XWF dying and Takashi Sasaki giving up the name to promote his FREEDOMS promotion it would allow Kanemura to scoop back up the promotion that he created in 2004.

November 22, 2010 at the Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, Kuroda would participate in Miss Mongol promoted 15 Year Anniversary show by teaming up with Atsushi Onita, Masato Tanaka, and Miss Mongol against Mr. Pogo, Ricky Fuji, The Winger, and Hideki Hosaka in a Barbed wire Street Fight Death Match. Mongol would end up getting carved up badly during the match but at the end with Kuroda helping keep the ladder straight she would climb off it and dive onto The Winger's body to cover him to get the win in the return to the FMW style Death Match. 

December 17, 2010 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, it would be the first Apache Army in over sixteen months with Kintaro Kanemura returning as the leader of the promotion. The show would include Kanemura and Kuroda in two matches on the show. The opening match would see Kuroda teaming up with the newest member of the Apache Army in Tomohiro Waki who was making his pro-wrestling debut against Kintaro Kanemura and Yasu Urano. Kanemura would end up getting the win after hitting the rookie with the Blast YAMA Senton Special for the win. Then in the main event of the show, Kuroda and Kanemura would team up to take on the team of Arashi and Dick Togo in a Spectator Throws in the Chair Match with Togo putting away Kuroda with a Powerbomb for the victory of the semi-successful return of the Apache Army promotion. 

January 28, 2011 at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring, in the second return show for the Apache Army promotion would see Tetsuhiro Kuroda main event against Masato Tanaka. But like every other time besides once when Kuroda won the WEW World Title back over 11 years ago from Tanaka it would be the same result as every other Masato Tanaka vs. Tetsuhiro Kuroda match as Tanaka would manage to get the victory over Kuroda after putting him away with the Sliding D.

Although Tetsuhiro Kuroda remains semi-retired with a regular job to support his new family now with the return of the Apache Army promotion he at least will be able to be regularly booked once or twice a month on shows as the next Apache Army show on February 13, 2011 will see Kuroda and Kanemura team up to take on the former Asian Cougar now known as Kuuga and a Mystery Partner of his choice for the main event at the Osaka Minami Move on Arena and then the Apache Army will return to the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring on February 26th followed by another show at the Shin-Kiba 1st Ring on March 25th. 

Tetsuhiro Kuroda's career in pro-wrestling might be winding down after 18 years in wrestling, but he still has something left in the tank and can still have a very good match and possibly might still have something to prove before he retires.
