☆1st Defense

Shisa admitted that he did not have a very notable 2013. However, he had some big plans in store for 2014.

Problem Dragon was officially declared the worst wrestler of 2013. He began to complain about the two count rules but was cut off by music to start the next match.

Shisa revealed his big plans after match 4. He challenged Horiguchi to a Brave Gate title match. Horiguchi accepted. It was set for the 1/12 Sambo Hall show.

CIMA & Kotoka had a conversation about the CIBA character, and the growth Kotoka showed in 2013. Kotoka is still only 23, but when CIMA was 23 he was main eventing Kobe World. Eita interrupted them. He invited Kotoka to join the Millenials. Kotoka pretended to accept, only to attack Eita. T-Hawk got in CIMAs’ face. He asked him to pick a side in the Millenials vs. Kotoka feud. MAD BLANKEY appeared at this point. Hulk invited Kotoka to join them. No answer was given.

Cyber Kong changed the subject to the main event. The Jimmys quickly intervened. After some talk, the match was changed to a Triangle Gate title match.

Mochizuki challenged Yoshino to a Dream Gate title match. Yoshino accepted, however T-Hawk came out before the end of the conversation. He was disgusted by the thought of someone over 40 challenging for the Dream Gate. T-Hawk and Mochizuki will face off in a singles match in Sambo Hall next month as a test.

The non-MB members of the roster gathered in the ring to throw autographed balls into the crowd. Saito & Horiguchi gave the customary closing speech to end the final show of 2013.

7. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Masato Yoshino (25:50 Sol Naciente Kai) BxB Hulk
☆3rd Defense for Yoshino

An interview segment for the main event was held after match 3. Hulk had little to say. He once again promised to destroy Yoshinos’ head with the First Flash. The white ring mat would be stained red with Yoshinos’ “meat sauce”. Yoshino talked about getting hit with the First Flash during their skirmishes leading up to tonight. He knew how effective it was. He wouldn’t be on the receiving end tonight. He promised to win for the Fukuoka fans, and everyone watching on PPV.

Takagi talked about ending YAMATOs’ Twin Gate reign after 0 defenses. He considered this payback for both his betrayal in June, and from the Dream Gate match in August. Tozawa thanked fans for the support, but hoped they saved some energy to cheer for Yoshino in the main event.

Yoshino thanked the fans in attendance, watching on PPV, and watching from the movie theaters hosting the live viewing events. Without their support, he could not have won. In the midst of all the chaos since the generation change at Kobe World, and even the many title changes tonight he has managed to make 3 defenses. He will continue to repel any and all challenges that come at him. He talked about the difference between this year and last, particularly for Tozawa. He asked fans to cheer their Twin Gate win again. He passed the microphone to Takagi. He said that they were a unit that was brought together by happiness and friendship. Today, they all stand as champions. This could be the true meaning of happiness. Tozawa and Yoshino shared some friendly banter before closing out the show with the usual speech of thanks yous and told fans to continue their support in 2014.

Fujii initially appeared in the Owarai Gate match in pink tights. He left the match at one point, and returned in a full fishnet costume with the Karaoke Machine mask. Problem Dragon also lost his mask in the later stages, but continued fighting.

Eitas’ injured shoulder was again targeted. DK said the same thing would happen in Fukuoka.

T-Hawk didn’t have much time to celebrate his win, as he was assaulted by Mochizuki during his post match speech. The Jimmys came out, mainly to remind people they were also in the Triangle Gate match. Saito piled on the abuse, throwing some kicks to T-Hawk. Mochizuki said the 3 Way 6 Man was a DG specialty, but this one wouldn’t be the usual high speed battle. Instead, it would be a bloodbath.

Yoshino & Horiguchi shared some mutual respect after their match. Yoshino proposed another singles match after they both defend their titles in Fukuoka. Next time he hoped to do a rice cake eating match, though…

Yoshino & Hulk got involved in the post main event brawl. They had a verbal back and forth, in advance of their Dream Gate match. After things settled down, the entire non-MAD BLANKEY portion of the roster took turns giving brief speeches of gratitude for 2013, and told fans what to expect of them in 2014.

Team Veteran aggressively targeted Eitas’ injured shoulder. He was trapped in the cross armbreaker with no escape, but refused to give up. Rocky Lobo threw in the towel, causing a TKO. Mocchy said a few weeks ago, the Millenials had two titles. Now they just had one. But Team Veteran weren’t just going to take their titles. They were going to beat their asses. He knew Flamita only understood Spanish, but he would probably understand his actions. He kicked Eita. He told the Millenials to accept that they would enter 2014 with no titles. 

Match five was added as a special bonus match.

Yoshino celebrated winning the last skirmish before FINAL GATE, reversing any momentum Hulk had gained from winning in Nagoya & Sapporo. Having already beaten YAMATO & Doi, he would topple the last New Generation pillar of MAD BLANKEY and add his challenger key to his belt. Hulk admitted defeat today. However, he stood by his stance that the First Flash would not only remove the belt from Yoshinos’ waist, but his head from his shoulders. YAMATO said that he & Doi would retain the Twin Gate. With Hulk winning the Dream Gate, this would create a perfect MAD BLANKEY happy end to FINAL GATE. Takagi & Tozawa disagreed. They looked ahead one more show, to the Sambo Hall event on the 27th. They would bring all the titles and have a proper happy ending to 2013.

YAMATO & Doi celebrated their title win. YAMATO said the Millenials and their green pro wrestling simply could not defeat a team like them. Doi considered the debt from losing to T-Hawk yesterday to be 100% repaid. The Twin Gate were the symbol of the highest level of tag team competition that DRAGON GATE has to offer. Yet, it wasn’t the main event tonight. The great hopes of the company since they returned from Mexico, certainly they weren’t living up to their expectations. They left the Millenials to lick their wounds. Team Veteran came out. Mochizuki told T-Hawk to put his head up. WHen he did so, Mocchy kicked him directly in the face. After some talk, CIMA, Mochizuki, & Kid became the next Triangle Gate challengers. The Jimmys interrupted. Saito, Tanizaki, & Susumu also challenged. The next Triangle Gate match was set as a 3 Way. T-Hawk promised the Millenials would continue their endless training, and would absolutely be in the main event next time they return to Sapporo.

Tozawa used the overall victory tonight to challenge YAMATO & Doi for their newly won titles. YAMATO initially refused, but eventually relented. The match was set for Fukuoka. MX closed the show by celebrating with yet another king crab prize. This one was large enough to be considered a monster crab. Therefore it was made an honourary member of MONSTER EXPRESS. Yoshino proposed a Yoshino vs. Monster Crab match, but Tozawa declined. He didn’t want to fight with  stablemate, but would happily team with the Monster Crab. They finished up with some promotion. Even though the title matches made tonight wouldn’t be happening in Sapporo, everyone all over Japan could see them at the FINAL GATE live viewings.

Shisa vs. CIMA was contested under 5 rope escape rules. After the match, Shisa said he wasn’t dead yet. He said K-ness saw a glimpse into his future. Tomorrow, he will fall victim to the Yoshitonic.

Doi brushed off the defeat today as a fluke. He certainly kicked out at 2 on the flash pin. Tomorrow, there would be no 3 counts on himself or YAMATO. T-Hawk insisted the result would be otherwise.

MONSTER EXPRESS won some of the world famous Hokkaido crab for their main event victory. MAD BLANKEY insisted they should be the ones to take it, since Hulk & Kzy were locals. Hulk wasn’t too bothered about losing. Tomorrow, MB would run roughshod over MX in the tug of war series. Yoshino and Tozawa disagreed. Yoshino said that MX would sweep all 4 matches. They put over the Sapporo faithful a bit, before leaving to eat their crab.

☆MAD BLANKEY fail in their 2nd Defense, The Millenials become the 45th Champion Team

After winning the semi-final, the Jimmys put the other units on notice that they had no intention of fading into the night.

Doi intruded after the main. Despite losing in the tournament, MAD BLANKEY were still going to go through with the Miracle Doi Darts game they promised last month. He called out the entire roster. Children were selected to throw the darts. This year, they would be selecting the participants for a three way six man tag. The teams chosen were CIMA & Ryotsu & Flamita, Ichikawa & Gamma & Tozawa, and Kagetora & CIBA & Cyber. After the match was set, Doi came to the shocking revelation that a wrestling ring has four corners. There was room for one more team! He nominated himself, YAMATO, & Hulk. Fans objected, so another set of darts were thrown. The final team selected was K-ness & YAMATO & Takagi. Doi left the Millenials to close the show, warning them to not be as terrible as usual on the microphone.

Eita said the three victories and Triangle Gate capture was the end result of their endless training. T-Hawk said they wouldn’t stop until they were alone at the top of DRAGON GATE.
