*MaxiMuM fail in their 2nd Defense, Verserk become the 60th Champion Team
Kzy reminded the world that Tribe Vanguard was still around, and they were determined to make their presence felt in the current unit battlefield. Kagetora agreed. With his pinfall win over Saito today, Kzy was more than qualified for a Brave Gate title match. Kzy reminded him that back in Hakata, Kagetora had asked him to relay a challenge to Flamita. Flamita was now standing in front of him. He can challenge him directly now. Kagetora remembered that this was, in fact, how it went. He challenged Flamita for a Brave Gate title match at Kobe World. Flamita accepted.
Mochizuki was happy to be on the receiving end of kicks from Ishida again. He had been out for 5 months, and seems well rested. Both Don Fujii & himself are 47 years old. To them, 5 months is over in the blink of an eye. It is no time at all. If Ishida took 20 years off he still wouldn’t be as old as them. Ishida has a lot of time left in his career. But there will still be a lot of times he and the other youngsters will be across the ring from Masaaki Mochizuki & Mr. Don Fujii.
Young MaxiMuM came out after the 3rd match and attacked. Kotoka mocked the Jimmyz for losing and for being caught off guard by the attack. They have permanent targets on their back and they should be ready to fight at all times. Eita was irritated. Yamamura scored the pin, Over Generation beat the Jimmyz. MaxiMuM had no reason to be here. Kanda was beyond irritated. These kids talk a lot of shit for guys who only win sometimes. Verserk came out at this point and argued with MaxiMuM over the main event. Shimizu said there was only one possible result. A MaxiMuM win with Big! R! Shimizu! getting the 3 count.
YAMATO & T-Hawk had a verbal confrontation in advance of their title match. YAMATO was impressed that T-Hawk still had gas in the tank after King of Gate. T-Hawk promised they would find out who the real number 1 was. It would be him.
Eita interfered in the semifinal, but it backfired and an errant superkick allowed Kotoka to pin CIMA.
The Jimmyz hit the ring after the main event. They challenged the new Triangle Gate champions to a title match. Over Generation followed. Gamma said he already had a reservation in his name for the next title match. Kotoka then demanded MaxiMuM get a rematch. He pinned CIMA today, so he felt he should be in the match. It would be the Young MaxiMuM trio challenging. Tribe Vanguard followed. They didn’t want to be left out of this.
Takagi was annoyed that the Verserk win was so quickly forgotten, but was amused by all the challenges. They would defend the titles at Kobe World, but a 5 way would be annoying to pull off. He proposed the four potential challenger teams have a one night tournament earlier in the show. The winning team would then go on to face Verserk in a title match. Horiguchi wasn’t too into the idea. 3 matches in one night is very inconvenient. Takagi said that as the champions, they get to make the rules. The challenger teams all has gripes, but in the end it was accepted. GM Yagi was pleased with the idea but had one concern. A one night tournament may extend the length of the show to an unreasonable length. He announced that the tournament matches would be competed under two count rules. With this settled, Verserk tried to celebrate their title win but when the fans didn’t react positively they left.
Doi & Yoshino then agreed there was only one piece of business left for today. They called out CK-1. It was pretty clear why they called them out. DK disagreed. He had no idea. They should just come out and say why. The fans knew why. Yoshino came out and said it. DoiYoshi wanted a Twin Gate title match and they wanted it at Kobe World. After talking for a long time and saying little, CIMA accepted the challenge.
MaxiMuM closed out the show with some propaganda for their various upcoming homecoming shows in the Kansai area.
