Yoshino celebrated picking up a win over one of the Triangle Gate champions. He asked for a bit of the fans time. He talked about the young generation. They will be the ones carrying the company in the future, and he believes they should be given chances. He will be teaming with Kotoka to challenge for the Triangle Gate in Fukuoka, but they need one more partner. He proposed an impromptu three way between the young generation to decide who would team with himself & Kotoka and challenge for the Triangle Gate at Final Gate. After Ben-K won, Yoshino declared they wouldn`t just be challenging for the titles, they would be walking out with them. Ben-K noted this was his first time in Sapporo, so he wanted to introduce himself. He is going to be a Triangle Gate champion after Final Gate. He is Ben-K.
CK-1 & Verserk had a back and forth in advance of their Twin Gate title match. DK told them they would never beat them via brute force alone. They will have to use their heads if they want to win, and he isn`t sure they are able to do that. Takagi was irritated and mocked their team name. What kind of stupid ass name is CK-1 anyway? The Verserk team was simply better and they were going to smash CK-1 to pieces.
Doi admitted defeat today, but warned YAMATO that this was just one more step on the way to Final Gate. There is still quite a bit of time left.On 12/25, he would be opening a new door to his dreams. YAMATO knew he was serious about the challenge, but the future of Dragon Gate would be created by YAMATO and only YAMATO. Doi told him he talked a big game, but reality will prove different. Naruki Doi would be the one closing out the year.
