This info sheet about previous 9 man makushita playoffs was posted in a facebook group. 4 Showa and 1 heisei era.

In all showa matches the 'bye each round to 3 man round' was used and in heisei the pre-elim into a normal tournament was used. The interesting thing is that when byes were used, the ultimate champion never received a bye.

I think this was all discussed already but its nice to have in a single chart like this

Thanks for sharing this very nice info sheet.  As it turns out, NHK World commentators were spreading misinformation about the 9-way playoff on at least two of their broadcasts, while FB actually provides a factual and very useful resource.

Also keep in mind that the winner of this Reiwa Era 9-way playoff had to fight more bouts than his opponent in the final.  It's almost as though having to fight more bouts provides wrestlers with an edge in these elimination affairs...
