After the opener, both units came out for a confrontation in the ring. They were kept apart by a rope in the middle. At the end, Kzy demanded another rap battle with Swann. Swann ether’d him again.

While the official finish to match three was Takayama over Tomahawk, it was actually the triple Ina Bauer, Nice, Everest German simultaneous German Suplex finish we hoped for on the podcast.

The Triangle champion team finally regained possession of their belts. They rejected BW as the next challengers, and instead will take one from within JIII for Sambo Hall on 8/14.

President Okamura came out for his customary speech after intermission. He didn’t say much of note, mostly talking reaffirming the DG position as a Kobe based company as they expand worldwide.

At the same time, the video screen displayed the date for the next PPV. The annual GATE OF DESTINY from Osaka will occur in October this year, on 10/16.

The new champions shook hands and made peace with PK-1 after the match of the night. PAC & Kid returned the favour, and put the belts around CIMA & Ricochets’ waists. That is where it ended, as BW attacked. Tanizaki stole the Brave Gate belt, and said since PAC was heading home for August, he would be the champion in his place.

Doi attacked Yoshino after match two. He stole his Triangle Gate belt.

CIMA announced he would be boycotting the Summer Adventure Tag Tournament. Don Fujii of all people took exception to this, saying it is not a professional act from CIMA. The argued for a while about Fujii being old and CIMA questioning his reasons for staying out of the unit fight to help the rookies. BW then attacked rookie Yosuke Watanabe on their way out.

YAMATO boasted about pinning Tozawa, and told him he should probably go back to the US for another 10 years or so. Kong jumped him, allowing Tozawa to hit him with the Package German. Kzy counted a mock pinfall. Kong then absconded with YAMATOs’ Triangle Gate title belt.

Hulk mocked Takagi, and swore his mighty kicks would fell all in his path en route to his championship win in Kobe. Mochizuki basically told him he still sucked at giving post victory speeches. BW left.

JIII then discussed the tag tournament. It looks like Takagi & Yokosuka, Yoshino & Kid, and Mochizuki & YAMATO will be the JIII teams.

Tanizaki, Kzy, and Tomahawk vs. Fujii, himself, and …. Yoshihiro Takayama! Fujii asked Stalker if Takayama knew about it. Stalker said he sent him an email, he should be there.
