Kong attacked YAMATO after his match, giving him a chop to the throat. YAMATO was injured by a Pineapple Bomber. He can’t even talk right now. How is he going to defend his title tomorrow? Getting injured before a scheduled title match is so unprofessional. After heir match tomorrow, Cyber Kong will be the new champion. But that is tomorrow. He has different title to win today. He called the Jimmyz out, but then asked them why they were there when they came out. Saito told him his dreams of becoming a double champion were going to end tonight.
CK-1 and North Tribe had some banter in advance of their title match tomorrow.
Yoshino made a quick appearance before intermission. This was his hometown so he had to at least show his face. He is working hard on his recovery. He can’t make any promises but he was going to try his best to be back in the ring in time for the next time they come to Osaka. He asked the fans to wait patiently for him, like Naruki Doi is.
Tominaga and Problem Dragon interfered to save El Lindaman from defeat, until Yamamura got involved. Things spin out of control and Referee Yagi had to get physically involved. The match was ruled a no contest. Kzy, Kagetora & Maria also came out and got involved. Lindaman said he did nothing wrong and it was all Yamamura’s fault. Everyone took turns laying out challenges. Yamamura blamed Lindaman. Everyone in Osaka was looking forward to an exciting Brave Gate title match and this is the kind of match Lindaman has? Yamamura should have gotten the shot. Maria blamed both of them. Eita beat her for the title, only to have performances like this? No one wants to see matches like this. Kzy said that both himself and Maria are former champions so they know what Brave Gate matches are all about. This isn’t it. No one wants to see this. Kagetora talked about failing in 9 attempts on the Brave Gate. He wants to become champion and restore it to the proper prestige. More chaos ensued until Yagi laid down the law. He decided to strip Eita of the title and hold a tournament with the 7 competitors in the ring. Eita and Lindaman will meet in the first round. Yamamura, Kzy, Maria, Kagetora, Tominaga, & one other to be named later will round out the field. Yamamura was determined to make an impact this year, and this is a great way to start. He warned Eita that there were no alliances here. If they end up meeting in the tournament, Yamamura would take him out. Maria has been waiting for this chance to come. She can once again become Brave Gate champion♡! Kzy apologized to the fans for the entire situation, but admitted he was happy with the opportunity it is giving him. He wants to regain the Brave Gate and raise its value. Kagetora said that no one understands the Brave Gate like him. He views this chance as a gift from god. He isn’t going to blow it. Lindaman told Kagetora he can talk all he wants, but in the end all he would be is a 10 time loser. As for Eita, he has had him beaten twice. Next time, it will result in a win. The next Brave Gate champion will be El Lindaman. Eita was amused at his confidence. Everyone here knows that Lindaman was a beaten man today. That title belt is his, and if he has to go through this tournament to reclaim what is his, so be it. Lindaman would be the first victim.
Doi, Ben-K, & Shimizu came out immediately after the main event. Doi tried to argued that due to all the cheating the result should be thrown out, and a win by disqualification given to the Jimmyz. T-Hawk told him to bugger off. The result is final. Doi told him that he HAS to know why he is here with Ben-K and Shimizu. They will be the first challengers to Verserk! T-Hawk was amused. It was probably 100 years too early for those two greenhorn musclehead idiots to be challenging for titles. Verserk refused. Doi accused them of being cowards, afraid that Big Ben were stronger than them. Naturally, this enraged Cyber Kong who said there was no one stronger than him. He accepted the challenge and it was made for 3/20 at Memorial Gate in Wakayama.
