The Jimmyz provoked MaxiMuM after the opener. The thing about greenboys is they think they can brute force their way through anything. The Jimmyz know how to deal with that and won’t run from any fight they want to pick. Bring it. The two units also brawled after the Susumu/Kzy match. Kzy also refused a handshake from Susumu.

Fujii was surprised with a bouquet from his mother in celebration of his 20th anniversary.

CIMA spoke for a long time after the main event. He said that when people say this card published, pretty much everyone assumed that Doi was going to win. He is the hottest guy in the company right now, after all. But Dragon Gate is a fantasy based on reality and something fantastic happened today. He digressed to congratulate Ishida on his return. He admitted that he has been feeling a certain way since around Thursday of last week. He has more experience than anyone in main events and title matches. That means nothing right now, though. YAMATO is champion. The same YAMATO that lost today to CIMAs’ classmate Don Fujii. Fujii received surprised flowers from his mother and it motivated him to a win. That ignited a spark in him. He wants to do well for his own mother who has taken care of him and watched over him. He wants to make her proud. His body hurts. Doing this style for 20 years isn’t easy. Wrestling isn’t easy. It can be fun, it can suck. You win, you lose. CIMA is planning on winning King of Gate. It has been awhile since he stood in the main event at Kobe World Hall. He was aiming for nothing less this year.

The Jimmyz came out after the main event to confront MaxiMuM. This joke of a unit they have made has the audacity to say the Jimmyz were their first target? Laughable. They will never win anything as long as they have baggage like Kotoka.
T-Hawk was annoyed that they were out here. Verserk won the match, after all. They should be getting the post-match spotlight. Saito said that at this time they had no particular beef with Verserk. But, everyone knows they can`t close out the show. The Jimmyz were just giving them a good excuse to leave without embarrassing themselves. T-Hawk said they had no interest in watching these two groups fight, so they would leave.
Doi once again blamed the Jimmyz for costing him his Dream Gate opportunity in Aichi. It is all their fault that he is not champion right now. They are going to talk bad about Kotoka? How long have they been together now? 7 years? Whatever it is, it is too long. They haven`t progressed or done anything in those 7 years. They just play with rubber bands and stuff.
This raised Kagetoras` ire. There is nothing MaxiMuM about this unit. DoiYoshi were fine, but the rest? Useless. They want to come at the Jimmyz? They will be shown first hand what the Jimmyz can do. Next month, here in Sambo Hall, Kagetora will be going 1 on 1 with Doi in a King of Gate league match. He is as good as he has ever been right now, and he knows he is good enough to beat Doi. He had one thing left to say to them. The Jimmyz were going to beat them at every turn and make them regret ever picking this fight.

Doi said even though they lost to Verserk today, they won`t lose to the Jimmyz again. In fact, they won yesterday in Yamanashi! Kagetora better train hard for their match on 6/4. Speaking of training; Kotoka ran 3km today in 11:15. No one in the Jimmyz could run 3km in that time! Fans were puzzled, so Doi assured them this was a really fast time. The fastest time. Doi & Yoshino shared some banter about how even though they will be 37 this year, they still feel like they are 27. Being around Kotoka, Ben, & Big has made them younger by osmosis. Yoshino closed out the show. He was seriously injured in this very building 4 months ago, but he is standing here now. He will keep getting stronger and faster. In fact, all of them will. They may have lost today, but the next time MaxiMuM comes to Kobe it will be all wins.

It took a genius, a wrestling master, to hand Takagi his first hometown loss. He thanked Mutoh for coming to face him. He didn’t expect the Figure Four Leglock to hurt that badly.
Mutoh thanked YAMATO for doing most of the heavy lifting. He asked Takagi to continue to fight hard on behalf of the people of Yamanashi. He mused that perhaps next time, it will be the Great Muta that comes to fight.

The former Cyber Kong introduced himself to the Korakuen Hall fans. He is Takashi Yoshida, 34, from Osaka. He has nothing left to lose, now. He was planning on attacking his next target sooner than later.

MaxiMuM also made their first appearance in Tokyo. Yoshino received a massive reaction for returning to Korakuen Hall after 4 months on the shelf. Kotoka, who was injured on the same day, is also back. The timing was right, and now MaxiMuM is together. Doi brought up how in Aichi, he was eliminated from the cage match after shenanigans from the Jimmyz. It was their fault he lost. They also considered themselves pros while Ben-K, Big, & Kotoka are still greenhorns. The Jimmyz are complacent and just trying to protect their spot. Nothing changes. The rubber band attack isn’t funny anymore. They will find this to be a serious fight, and it begins here tonight.

After the win, Saito said this was the inevitable result. What exactly is maximum about DoiYoshi and their little babies. What exactly did they expect to accomplish with this farce of a unit? As for the cage match stuff. Doi should be grateful the Jimmyz saved him from having his head shaved since even if he made it to the final two he would have blown it. Horiguchi said that while the Jimmyz have a soft image, they can be fearsome when they need to be. Doi & Yoshino were as popular and capable as ever, but the other 3 are trash and they are going to be taught a lesson about the realities of Dragon Gate.

Mochizuki asked Takagi what it felt like to lose to a nearly 50 year old bastard. As for Lindaman, they are also together in the same block. Hopefully he was watching closely today. He was going to suffer for trying to interfere today. He told Verserk to get out. They had no more business here. Masaaki Mochizuki, age 47 years and 4 months with no unit affiliation or recent championship matches defeated Shingo Takagi today. King of Gate starting has made him think about the current state of Dragon Gate. There are rookies making a huge impact and there are new units forming. Takagi, Hulk, Doi, Yoshino, YAMATO, Twin Gate champions, Triangle Gate champions. There is a lot going on. However in the middle of that there are still Mochizuki & Don Fujii. 47 years old. No units or titles. They may not have as many chances as they once did, but King of Gate is the season where all dreams can come true. He won’t ever stop aiming for the Dream Gate and the top spot.

*5th Defense for YAMATO

After match 2, the steel cage entrants had an interview segment. Cyber Kong said he was the only one on that stage to never be Dream Gate champion. That ends today. Takagi said it has been nearly 9 months since he lost the title to YAMATO. He’s bored. Nothing has changed in those 9 months. Where is this supposed Golden Age of Dragon Gate that YAMATO proclaimed to bring? He is a liar and a fraud. His time is up. Takagi has no choice but take the title back and steer the course his own way. Hulk apologized to YAMATO. He feels bad, but he wants to win, even if that means YAMATO ends up bald and beltless. Doi received a big reaction. He was back in Nagoya as Naruki Doi of MaxiMuM. He was going to stave off the interference from the others, and defeat YAMATO to secure a happy ending for everyone. YAMATO thanked the fans for filling the arena to capacity again this year. He survived last year, and will do so again this year. The Golden Age starts today.

Yamamura refused a handshake from Kagetora. Kage was really impressed with him. He was doing things 18 months in his career that Kagetora wasn’t even thinking about at the same experience level. He is looking forward to watching him grow into a fearsome opponent. He was planning on still being Brave Gate champion when that happens, so he is welcome to challenge again.

MaxiMuM and the Jimmyz argued after their match. Saito questioned Yoshinos’ choice in teammates. What did he think he could accomplish with partners like Kotoka and greenhorns like Ben-K? Yoshino took exception, but took more exception with his own teammates reaction. Why weren’t they more upset? Why weren’t they fighting back? Yoshino said he had his first target for the group. The Jimmyz. Horiguchi told them to bring it on. Their ragtag unit was no match for the Jimmyz and their 6 years together.

YAMATO survived extensive interference to retrieve the belt, leaving Cyber Kong as the loser. As per the rules, he had to remove his mask, reveal his real name and age. HE refused. The cage was built higher than he expected. Who could climb that thing? He offered up Tominagas’ hair as a substitute sacrifice. YAMATO was having none of that. Kong eventually relented. He went to remove it himself, but YAMATO stopped him. Several years ago, he was the loser of a cage match. He sat down in the chair like a man and let Cyber Kong cut his hair. Today, Kong should be a pro and do the same. Kong sat while YAMATO removed his mask. Kong also disputed the rules about his name and age. After further pressing he revealed himself as Takashi Yoshida, age 34 from Osaka Prefecture. This wasn’t the end. He’s lost everything now, so he has nothing left to fear. Verserk were going to continue to wreak havoc. Verserk left.
YAMATO said that the wrestler known as Cyber Kong is now gone. He urged Yoshida to consider his new ringname.

YAMATO thanked the fans for giving him the power to survive. He was battered and bruised, but was still champion. He thanked them for coming all the way to Aichi or watching on TV. King of Gate starts on Tuesday. He plans on winning again. He also planned on being still being champion at Dead or Alive 2018. He thanked Maria, Kzy, Flamita, & Hulk for their assistance today. Today, as always, wasn’t he just the coolest?

7. Road to Dead or Alive Challengers vs. Challengers: Naruki Doi{W}, BxB Hulk (21:53 Bakatare Sliding Kick) Shingo Takagi{L}, Cyber Kong

Kagetora was ready to make his first Brave Gate title defense. Since Yamamura now has two wins over him, he was challenging him. Yamamura was hesitant but eventually accepted. He told Kagetora that even though he has finally become champion after 10 tries, his reign would end with 0 defenses. They agreed to have the match at Dead or Alive. Kagetora went for a handshake but Yamamura refused. Their fight has already begun. Yamamura vowed to take he title.

Tominaga interfered heavily in the late stages of match four. Afterwards he ran down Shimizu & Ben-K. No one wanted to see them wrestle. They wanted to see Punch. He called out anyone. This brought out Masato Yoshino, in full ring gear. If Punch wanted a fight, Maybe he would get one. Even though he announced he was coming back, he never said when. Well. He was here and dressed to wrestle. This was as good a time as any. Punch told him he was going to send him back to the hospital. The match was hastily started.
After making short work of Punch, Yoshino talked about he decided to show up here today. He has been through three months of hell. Even though this was more of warm up than a real comeback, he had made it a goal to be able to wrestle here today in Hakata. He addressed Shimizu & Ben-K. They are Triangle Gate champions with Doi, who was not out here right now. He was surely watching, though. They understand each other better than anyone, after all. Shimizu confirmed that Doi was in fact very fond of Yoshino. Yoshino told the fans to enjoy the rest of the show, cheer for Doi in he main event, and to look forward to seeing Masato Yoshino after he make sure his full comeback. After the main event, he shared some banter with Doi. DoiYoshi, along with Shimizu & Ben-K reaffirmed their intentions of starting a new unit together.

Lindaman & T-Hawk attacked after the semifinal. They had already announced their intentions of coming for the Twin Gate. Now that these two broken down pieces of trash were out of the way, CK-1 was being put on notice. Their reign would come to an end in Aichi. CIMA noted that they’ve made three title defenses here in Hakata. This is a special place for CK-1, so coming back here in June without the titles was simply not an option.
