Kagetora never gave up in his dreams of becoming Brave Gate champion, even during his long injury last year. He is looking forward to taking on all of the young generation, but he warned them that now that he is champion he won’t be giving up the title so easily.
Takagi blamed the loss on the referee, but admitted he was happy. The Triangle Gate belts are cursed. Tragedy and injury waits for the team that holds them. Doi better hope that bad luck doesn’t follow him into the cage. He should probably make sure nothing bad happens in his private life either. In any case, the show was over. He demanded all the redneck fans go home.
Doi said there was an entire title belt ceremony left to have, so Verserk are the ones that should go home. The new champions celebrated this win as a new starting point. Memorial Gate is their Memorial Day. Shimizu said together they would create a new era. Ben-K had no plans on slowing down, because he is Ben-K. Doi had someone else he wanted to talk to. He called out Masato Yoshino.
Doi showed him the newly won title belts. Yoshino apologized for keeping him waiting, and congratulated the new champions. They shared some banter. Yoshino revealed that the numbness in his right arm is now gone, and his recovery has reached the strength building phase. He was still going to need some time before he can return to the ring, so he asked Doi to be patient for a little while longer.
Doi promised him he would be waiting for him. Since he was in such a good mood, he decided to have a special autograph session for the fans.
