CIMA talked about the Dragon Kid injury. He was going to be out for several months, but he was ready to fight today. He had to be talked out of getting on the Shinkansen and coming to Tokyo. Replacing him wasn’t so simple. This was a job for an Over Generation member. There are currently only 4 OG members left standing. Problem Dragon & Ishida weren’t ready to do 2 matches in one day. Gamma was up for it but, as DK’s Twin Gate partner CIMA felt it was his duty to take his place. He asked Mochizuki & Fujii to come out and accept his offer to help them throw out some smelly trash but Verserk interrupted. They didn’t agree to this. If that idiot Dragon Kid wasn’t here then the main event will continue as a 3 on 2. Mochizuki & Fujii were ready and willing to do it that way. Verserk were the ones that should be worried. What if they lost? How embarrassing would that be? It would certainly put an end to any of their ambitions as main eventers. Lindaman was so confident he told T-Hawk & Eita to take the night off. He would face Mochizuki & Fujii by himself! Mochizuki quickly tried to make this official but Eita shut Lindaman up. Eita said that CIMA could be in the match, but on one condition. If Verserk wins, CK-1 will have to vacate the Open the Twin Gate. CIMA was willing to agree to anything. He would agree to lick Lindaman’s boots if they lost if it means he could get his hands on them. Lindaman pounced on that statement and added it as another stipulation.
Metal Warrior attacked Kagetora again, this time with a John Woo. He unmasked himself to reveal Yasushi Kanda. He continued his attack, using scissors to cut off a large chunk of hair. He called him an idiot. He was so quick to doubt the other ex-Jimmyz. He really never thought it could be him? He went to cut off the rest of his hair but referee Yagi tackled him. Why? Because hair is very very very important. Kanda clearly doesn’t understand this. If he wants to cut some hair he should cut his own. Why? Because fuck people who get to have long hair! Kagetora actually had to calm Yagi down. He was the one who had his hair cut, so he is the one that gets to be angry. He challenged Kanda to come after the Brave Gate so he could get his hands on him.
Takagi swore up and down that he kicked out at 2. TWO! Everyone saw it. He kicked out. Saito told him to give it up. He lost. 1, 2, 3, 5, 10. No matter the number, Takagi is the loser. Takagi blamed it all on Punch. Saito announced that it was once again time for Mr. Shingo Takagi to make excuses and pass the blame to someone else. Takagi blew it off. This match was a lot of nothing. Whatever. This wasn’t over. Takagi pulled out the Owarai Gate, which he had destroyed during the match. His precious little belt was done. He won’t be able to defend it in his bullshit comedy matches ever again! Saito said that the condition of the title belt wouldn’t alter his style. He will continue to make fans laugh. The other ex-Jimmyz have made moves. They have challenged for and defended championships. He was left behind, but that time has passed. It was time for him to make his move.
Eita demanded that CIMA live up to the stipulation and vacate the Twin Gate. They belong to Eita & T-Hawk now. Lindaman tried to enforce the other stipulation. The one that required a distinguished 20 year legend lick the boots of a rookie only 3 years into his career. Enjoy it. Be sure to lick the whole thing. Take it in. Susumu came in to make the save. No one is licking anything here. He turned to CIMA. It was unfortunate that he had to give up the Twin Gate, but there was nothing preventing him from just taking them right back. He offered to team with him to take out T-Hawk & Eita and win back the Twin Gate. CIMA talked about winning and defending the Twin Gate for over a year with Dragon Kid. They weren’t beaten in a match, they had to give them up in such an unpleasant manner. He accepted the offer from Susumu. They continued to go back and forth under Muscular Countdown played.
It was time for Doi Darts! He called the entire roster to the ring. As has become tradition, some kids were pulled from the crowd to help select the members of the main event for the final Korakuen Hall of the year. Last year, Yoshino made a little girl cry and the selected match was so precarious that Doi & YAMATO had to be added to it. This time around, El Lindaman had his spot hit 6 times, including 3 in a row by the same kid.
The matched ended up:
Yasushi Kanda & El Lindaman & Hyo Watanabe & Don Fujii & T-Hawk vs. Big R Shimizu & Eita & Naruki Doi & Kotoka & Susumu Yokosuka
