Maria greeted the fans to start the show. She talked about the upcoming Brave Gate title match she had with that Kotoka guy. She won’t lose to the likes of him, and hopes the fans will cheer for her. On to more important matters. She has kissed many good looking wrestlers, but there is one pair of lips that has eluded her. Naruki Doi. She would try and change that today, and hopes the fans will cheer for her.
She was close to achieving that goal in the closing stretch of the match, but Kotoka came up from behind her and once again stripped her top off. This allowed Doi to deliver the Bakatare Sliding Kick to win.
Kotoka wondered why she was so focused on Doi when she had a title match with him coming up. It doesn’t matter. He was going to win in 5 minutes anyway. Then Maria would have to wrestle topless forever. Maria was flustered and ashamed, demanding her top back. Kotoka will need 5 minutes to win? Too bad. He was going to be beaten in 10 seconds.
Horiguchi introduced the new Dream Gate champion to the Kobe fans. It was a hard and vicious fight, but he was able to end his 10 year Dream Gate drought. This was in no small part due to the support of the fans, so he thanked them for that. He talked about the upcoming rematch with Takagi in Osaka and the stipulation of Takagi having to leave Verserk if he loses. Takagi had blamed the loss on YAMATO hitting him with powder, leading to a dispute between them. Today they had to team together against RyoSuka. This would be a sure win for the Jimmyz. So would the next match, giving them two wins over Verserk today.
Tanizaki wore a Problem Dragon style costume & mask and was introduced as Problemzaki for the match.
Shimizu & T-Hawk celebrated their big win. Since it was over a former Twin Gate champion team that sure seemed like it fit the qualifications they needed. They called out Doi & YAMATO. Doi was still hesitant. However, they promised to defend the titles in Osaka. Not just that, but it was a special defense. It was going to be #10. Shimizu & T-Hawk would have to kill them to take the titles from them. They can have their title shot.
Mochizuki had some words for Shimizu. He got to watch him grow up from Ryotsu Shimizu to the Big R Shimizu he was today. This was his first time fighting him. It was also his first time feeling the Shot-put Slam. With that move, he can beat anyone. They beat MochiFujii today. They can beat DoiYAMA in Osaka and take the Twin Gate. Shimizu missed the point entirely and wondered if that was all Mochizuki wanted to say. Mochizuki had to speak clearer. He was giving him words of encouragement. Shimizu said that since Mochizuki was the one who helped him become who he is now, so he hoped Mochizuki would watch the Twin Gate title match. Mochizuki said that both he & Fujii would be there to see it.
Fujii also had something to say. Since the Sumoz were going to be descending on Osaka, he wanted to send a team after the Triangle Gate.
Yoshino was pleased with what he saw out of teaming with Kzy today. Their teamwork was excellent, everyone got along well. Kzys’ former stablemate was doing well in MONSTER EXPRESS. He also looked good in his new orange ring gear. This was good a place as any to ask. He invited Kzy to join MONSTER EXPRESS. Kzy thanked him for the offer. To be honest, he was so focused on the upcoming match with Verserk that he hadn’t given any thought to potential unit membership. For now, he wanted to just fight as a one-man Dia HEARTS. He would think about it, and give Yoshino an answer in Korakuen. Yoshino was fine with this, and would be waiting for his response.
This time around it was a Doi box attack that caused Takagi to lose. He lashed out again. Did Doi even look before swinging? Was he just following directions from YAMATO? YAMATO said that while he was indeed at fault in Hakata, he didn’t do a damn thing today. Doi sided with him. Sure, Doi was off with his aim. His fault there. But it was his fault that Takagi got pinned. That is how him. He should stop blaming others when he loses. Takagi lamented what things have come to. Maybe he should just not have anyone second him. He would beat Susumu by himself and put an end to all this. Doi told him if that is what he wanted, he could have it. Just remember, if he loses he is out of Verserk forever. Good luck. The rest of Verserk left.
Takagi turned his attention to Susumu. He better be focused, because there would be no misses next time. No flukes. No miracles. He needed that title belt more than any words could say. Susumu better be prepared.
Susumu was taken aback by the developments within Verserk. The Jimmyz were sure fine. Maybe it was because of that friendship bullshit Takagi claims to hate so much. He was already prepared to experience no miracles in Osaka. He wouldn’t need them. He would just win the match and defend HIS title.
