The contract signing for the main event was held after match two. CIMA talked about there being a big concert over in the nearby Yahoo Japan Dome. It was a pretty big deal so many Hakata natives were there. Those that didn’t go and instead came here came for one reason. To see CIMA win the Dream Gate. For their sake, and for the sake of DRAGON GATE history, he would fight to the death to win today. Just to make sure, he polled the crowd on who they wanted to see win. The answer was a resounding “CIMA”. He was going to win, and everyone knows why. Because he is CIMA.
Takagi noted this was the first time he would be facing CIMA as champion. He had great admiration for CIMA. He was the man who wrote DRAGON GATEs’ history. He has no choice but to erase that history today. Times have changed and it is out with the old. He would write a new legacy in his own image. To do that, he had to put an end to CIMA.

Stalker was costumed after Rickson Gracie, who faced Funaki in a famous Coliseum Rules fight many years back. After being beaten quickly he appealed for his usual rematch. Since Ichikawa had essentially zero chance under the special rules, Mochizuki asked Funaki to do the rematch under regular pro wrestling rules.

Doi ran down PT after their match. He was in over his head trying to fight at the championship level. Don’t even think about trying again. VERZERK were 2 for 2 so far. After Shingo wins and they take the Triangle Gate, Fukuoka would get a full VERZERK happy ending.

Takagi celebrated but lamented the lack of applause. Sorry CIMA. Your time is over. Just like Fujii, Gamma, & Mochizuki before him. The veterans have been vanquished. Well. There was Shisa. But that wasn’t going to happen. 2015 was over and now it was time to take out the trash. VERZERK would be steering the ship in 2016. They did their customary pose and were ready to end the show on the sourest of notes when Susumu hit the ring and laid Taagi out with the Jumbo no Kachi!
If you follow the timeline, after the veterans you would find his generation. Takagi claims to have no challengers left. Well. He was standing right there. He wanted a title match. In fact, he had been planning to come out to challenge CIMA because he was sure CIMA was going to win. He was the very first Dream Gate challenger for CIMA back in 2004 and again in 2012. He wanted to do so one more time. Even in defeat, he knew fans wanted to see CIMA close the show, so he passed the microphone to him.
CIMA had promised everyone a happy ending. Even with the fan support and tactical support from his veteran allies, he was still defeated. Takagi talked about spring cleaning and taking out the trash. Well. Maybe he was garbage by now. But there are many types of trash. Burnable, plastic, etc. Well. If you read his label it says “CIMA: Do not throw away”. He had hoped for a victory as a late Christmas present. It didn’t come, but he was saved by Susumu. Susumu had a birthday in February. You know what else is in February? A show in Hakata Star Lanes on the 14th. That is as good a place as any for him to get his Dream Gate title match. It was set. Susumu promised get into peak condition. 2016 will be 10 years since he was last Dream Gate champion, and he would end that drought on 02/14.
CIMA thanked the fans for their support in 2015, and promised to keep working hard to fulfill the dreams of the fans and children in 2016.

Problem Dragon was incredibly annoyed at having Maria as his final opponent in Kobe for 2015. The Millennials were done. Why was he still doing this stupid cross-dressing bullshit? Everyone knows he is that ugly son of a bitch Yosuke Watanabe.

VERZERK attacked after the opener. Today they were fighting OVER GENERATION in a Naniwa Elimination match. Doi assumed that greenhorn Yamamura probably didn’t know the rules so he explained them. While it was a 5 on 5 match, it starts 1 on 1. Then each team alternates entering members. Whoever has the man advantage will probably win. So VERZERK should get it. Right? Gamma disagreed. They ended up doing a lottery drawing to decide which team gets it. Kotoka pulled it for VERZERK.

Problem Dragon accidentally hit Cyber Kong with powder, leading to his loss to T-Hawk.

VERZERL celebrated. Kotoka warned Eita that his knee would be fully healed by Fukuoka. Eita would have to beat him in a fair fight and everyone knows that he can’t do that. Blehhhhhh! YAMATO mocked PT for his Moomin-esque body. Wasn’t he supposed to be getting in shape for the title match? He wasn’t going to last 3 minutes in the title match.
CIMA noted the change in tone from the fun Sumoz atmosphere yesterday. This was not the DRAGON GATE he helped create. The DG that was being controlled by Takagi had to be stopped. He promised to put an end to the unhappy endings, and return to Kobe as Dream Gate champion next month.

Dia HEARTS celebrated their win in the opener over freshly-turned-adult birthday boy Ishida. They talked about the upcoming Triangle Gate title match. If Big is in the same form as today they will surely take the titles. Kzy mentioned that the exact same team won the Triangle Gate last year in Fukuoka so he has total faith in them in this one.

Takagi called PT a piece of human garbage. Kotoka still can’t do anything so this was essentially a 2 on 1 match and he still won. This was proof that the PT win last month was a one-time miracle. Trash is trash, and he won’t be winning any titles any time soon. The same goes for CIMA. Kotoka promised that when they return to Sambo Hall next month that VERZERK will have all the titles. Blehhhhhh!

After the Sumoz celebrated their main event win and both teams shared some banter, CIMA spoke about more serious members. This was the atmosphere DRAGON GATE was supposed to have. It was up to him to put an end to the Takagi reign of terror. He would start tomorrow by eliminating him from the big elimination match tomorrow. Both sides once more exchanged pleasantries to close out the show.
