The Jimmyz talked after the opener. They didn’t have any success in KING OF GATE this year. It was troubling times for the unit. It wasn’t all bad news, though. Jimmy Kagetora was back in action after missing a full year. Even that great news was lost, because BxB Hulk returned at the exact same time. YAMATO had his rebirth, TRIBE VANGUARD was formed. Even though the Jimmyz merchandise has always been a top seller, when you go to the merch stand now you are bombarded with TRIBE VANGUARD goods. Could the Jimmyz be coming to an end? Kagetora asked them to stop joking around. Kobe World was a month away. Furthermore, in the semifinal today the Jimmyz would be facing off with T-Hawk & Shimizu. Shimizu stood toe to toe with YAMATO in the KoG finals last week. But T-Hawk? He has been beaten twice in recent times by Kagetora. T-Hawk came out to confront him over this statement. Just what was he implying? Kagetora was implying that he was about to beat T-Hawk a third time. T-Hawk noted that MONSTER EXPRESS have both the Twin & Triangle Gate titles. The Jimmyz have nothing. They are an afterthought in the unit scene. Kagetora told him to shut up about his stupid belts. GM Yagi intervened. This was Kyoto, after all. The tagline for every Kyoto show is “What will happen?”. What will happen here is a Twin Gate title match. Both sides agreed to it. Shimizu promised to use the Shot-put Slam to win for T-Hawk and for himself, Big! R! Shimizu!

Fujii once again tried to talk some sense into Lindaman. He felt he has become the most formidable fighter out of all the young generation. He asked him to fight together, just once. Lindaman got annoyed. He was tired of hearing the same thing from Fujii. He wasn’t interested!

Verserk interrupted the Jimmyz celebration. Doi pointed out that the new so-called champions were beaten by Doi last week. YASSHI, in front of his hometown fans, challenged them to a title match.

7. KING OF GATE 2016 Finals: YAMATO (24:15 Cross Armbreaker) Big R Shimizu

YAMATO & Shimizu had a face off at the top of the show. Shimizu repeated his statement from yesterday. He could take whatever YAMATO could throw at him, but YAMATO had no answer for the Shot-put Slam. Because of that, the 2016 KING OF GATE winner would be Big! R! Shimizu!
YAMATO said that there was more than just KING OF GATE at stake today. YAMATO is one of the leaders of the current generation. They were still a wall to the new generation that Shimizu is a part of. Shimizu wasn’t going to blow past him so easily. The wall would only get higher today, because YAMATO was going to win.

CIMA addressed Eita after match four. It has been over seven months since OVER GENERATION started, and Eita has shown great improvement. His showing in KING OF GATE was remarkable. Wins over CIMA & Susumu, and the draw with Tozawa. It was time for Eita to take another step forward. In months time, New Japan Pro Wrestling were hosting the Super J-Cup. When CIMA was Eitas’ age he made a big splash in the J-Cup. He thinks Eita will make a great DRAGON GATE representative. Eita was grateful for the opportunity. He would be proud to represent DG. His confidence grew considerably during KoG. His wins helped him realize just what he is capable of, and he promised to absolutely show the world in the J-Cup.

Doi taunted the fans & the Jimmyz after the win. The Jimmyz sure sounded like they were going to go for the Twin Gate yesterday. Here there are today losing like a bunch of losers. No way they could challenge for any titles. When you think of the Twin Gate, you think of Naruki Doi. He was going to regain HIS titles. The champions were officially on notice.

CIMA celebrated the back to back wins for the SuperCIMA-Super Human-Dragon Kid team. He wondered if this was the first time OVER GENERATION has won on consecutive days with the same team. Anyway. The team they beat today are the Triangle Gate champions. This seems like as good a place as any to challenge them to a title match. After some talk, Yoshino accepted.

YAMATO praised Shimizu after the finals. He couldn’t believe someone who was only 23 was so strong. YAMATO is 35. When he was 23 he was barely even a trainee. He was jealous of his youth. Shimizu, T-Hawk, Maria, Eita. They would be leading the path in the future. The current and new generation would bring DG to new heights.
Shimizu said this whole thing was like something out of a dream. To make it to the finals only three years into his career. To have a chance on such a big stage. He thanked YAMATO for today. However, next time they have a singles match the only result would be a Shot-put Slam and a 3 count won by Big! R! Shimizu!

After Shimizu left, YAMATO turned his attention to his next target. He wanted to be Dream Gate champion a 4th time. He called out Takagi. He was the KING OF GATE winner. That gives him dibs on the next title match. Takagi laughed it off. This joker who Takagi beat handily during league play wants a title shot? To have this guy, this weakling win KING OF GATE. The company should be ashamed. This is just the worst. In any case, his answer is “Fuck no”. Fans can boo all they want. That wasn’t going to change things. The Dream Gate champion is superior to the winner of some tournament. YAMATO pressed him further. Takagi admitted that he is getting restless. He hasn’t defended the title in a long time due to KING OF GATE. He is eager to destroy a new challenger. Fine. He can have his match. YAMATO began to respond but was given a Pumping Bomber. YAMATO lost his edge. The war is on. He should be ready at all times.

GM Yagi came out to set the match. The battle to decide whether the Dream Gate champion or the KING OF GATE winner was the strongest can only take place on one stage. The biggest one of the year. July 24th in Kobe World Kinen Hall. This match will be the main event. Takagi was pleased. Finally, he can put to rest this bullshit that has been going on since Aichi. Garbage ass YAMATO and his garbage ass friends and his garbage ass KING OF GATE trophy were going to be disposed of.

Mondai Ryu promised to play spoiler and keep Eita out of the semi-finals. He once again beat up a trainee to show how strong his Fastest Neckbreaker Drop is. His attempt at giving the hold to Eita was quickly countered for the pin.

The Kanda win over Kzy gave YAMATO the win in Block A. Shimizu clinched Block D with his win. Mochizuki advanced two days ago by virtue of the Kotoka win over T-Hawk in Nagasaki.

Block B is still undecided. Tozawa & Eita both finished with 7 points. Their match went to a draw, so there is no tiebreaker possible. They will have a sudden death playoff match tomorrow in Hakata to decide who advances.

Mondai Ryu taunted the fans before his match. The great Problem Dragon was the presumptive winner of the KING OF GATE. He demanded applause but he didn’t really get any. These idiots here in Okayama are so disrespectful. He has 3 league matches left. He was going to sweep them and win Block B with ease. He & Kotoka bullied a trainee. Dragon gave him the Worlds’ Fastest Neckbreaker Drop and Kotoka counted a mock pin. This was a glimpse into CIMAs’ future. He called CIMA to the ring. CIMA came out from behind, and gave him a Superkick, Schwein, and Meteora for the 14 second win.

7. KING OF GATE B Block: Jimmy Susumu (16:39 Jumbo no Kachi!gatame) CIMA

Shimizu, not good at math, asked Yoshino if the Yoshino/Lindaman draw today meant that a win for him over Horiguchi would put him in the semi-finals. Yoshino said this was correct, however a win would not be too easy. Yoshino would be out there cheering for Horiguchi. He was an ally of Shimizu, but he was also incredibly competitive. Horiguchi also would have something nearly as powerful as Yoshino on his side. Divine intervention. The Backslide from Heaven can put away anyone. Shimizu noted that he also has something no one can kick out of. The Shot-put Slam. The finishing move of BIG! R! SHIMIZU!

Doi & YASSHI taunted the fans. YASSHI announced he would make his return to Kobe World Hall to continue his quest to make this the darkest timeline in Dragon Gate history.

After some post match brawling, Punch and OVER GENERATION celebrated the draw. It was a draw that rewarded 0 points, but it is a draw that severely hampers the chances of Dream Gate champion Shingo Takagi. Gamma praised PT for sticking it out and not going down easy.

OVER GENERATION did the customary First Gong Kids segment. CIMA talked about KING OF GATE and the arrival of Peter Kaasa. The delayed arrival of Peter Kaasa. He was supposed to arrive yesterday, but late last night he contacted CIMA via Facebook messenger to inform him he was still in Chicago. After the Yokohama show yesterday, he went out for some delicious Greek food. The person tasked with picking up Peter at the airport had yet to see anyone that could possibly be a wrestler. Hours passed. They checked with immigration and staff. Nothing. CIMA paused to chastise a fan who had a very loud cellphone ringtone. Silent mode, please. He finally arrived at Narita Airport in the afternoon and came straight to Korakuen Hall, arriving just before the doors opened. CIMA told him he could take the night off, but he insisted on competing.
After another Korakuen win for Lindaman, CIMA wanted a talk with him. More specifically, he wanted to know what the deal with him & Fujii from last month was about. If he didn’t want help from Fujii, who did he want it from? Lindaman declined to answer. We’re right in the middle of KING OF GATE and he didn’t want to distract the fans with any sort of announcement. He would hold it until the league was over. CIMA was amazed at his maturity. When he was 21 he said and did whatever he wanted whenever he wanted….

After the main event, a brawl broke out between Verserk, MONSTER EXPRESS, & eventually TRIBE VANGUARD. Tozawa told TV this was none of their business. YAMATO noted that he said the same thing to Yoshino when he came out after the main event last month. Besides, destroying Takagi & Verserk is their goal so this has everything to do with them. Takagi ran down everyone in sight. YAMATO? The guy who lost to Takagi last month and that old bastard Fujii today? What a joke. Garbage ass Kzy. Garbage ass Maria. Broken down Hulk. As for MONSTER EXPRESS. They have some big guns in T-Hawk & Shimizu. But then there is that worthless piece of human trash Shachihoko BOY. No matter how much effort the other members of ME put in, they can’t make up for that loser. He is baffled that people don’t understand how useless he is.
After some arguing, a 3 way 6 man tag was made for next month in Korakuen. Takagi, Doi, & YASSHI will represent Verserk. For TRIBE VAGUARD it will be YAMATO, Hulk, & Kzy. ME will field Tozawa, Yoshino, & Shachi. Takagi berated Shachi some more, until he snapped and slapped Takagi hard across the head, staggering the champion. Shachi promised more of the same in the three way. He threw the microphone down so hard it bounced into the stands.

Yoshino, as the winner of the main event, closed out the show. ME shared some banter about KING OF GATE. Yoshino was in the same block as Shimizu, and admitted he would be rooting for Horiguchi to beat him in his final league match. Yoshino promised to be the first repeat winner, while Shimizu quietly disagreed in the background.

Hulk greeted his hometown fans for the first time in almost a year. During his rehab, Dia HEARTS were broken up. But that is fine because now he has YAMATO, Kzy & Maria. YAMATO talked about the events in Aichi, and his recent reformation. Hulk got to the point of this particular speech. It was time to unveil the name of their unit. That name is TRIBE VANGUARD. The meaning is simple. Tribe is easy to understand. In the jungle, you need a tribe to survive. Pro wrestling is no different. Vanguard means the forefront. They will be the leading unit in DG and their name reflects it.

Ichikawa dared Yoshino to come after his Owarai Gate title. Did he possibly think he could have a funny enough performance to become champion. Yoshino reminded him that he was a former champion. A former champion that was stripped of the title for never defending it. He accepted the challenge. After the instant loss Ichikawa said there was nothing funny about that and demanded a restart.

Kagetora admitted his return was overshadowed by the return of Hulk, and the recent events involving YAMATO and the new unit formation. He promised the fans that his comeback will bring big things for the Jimmyz.

After the DQ, Doi introduced the newest member of Verserk to the fans. Way better than that YAMATO guy. “brother” YASSHI! YASSHI gave his usual unintelligible promo and promised more of this on 6/4 when they return to Kobe.
