Yosuke♡Santa Maria suffered a concussion on the show yesterday, so she was pulled from the card today.

Saito Sensei announced that today would be the final day of classes before the Sapporo Municipal Teisen Middle School closed. He assured the student body that it was not their fault. Himself, Hiromasa, Tatsuki, & Yoshihito all had a lot of memorable moments in this school over the years. Tatsuki in particular was found of opening the doors and taking class outside, to the shock of those on the street. He asked him to keep class indoors today. He hoped that everyone would enjoy the final day of school, from 1st through 5th period.

Doi celebrated the win over Takagi, but admitted he really wanted to pin Yoshino. He brought up the Twin Gate titles. Yoshino & Shachi still were champions. Yoshino was naturally a worthy champion. But there was Shachi. This guy. He was a dark match level loser. Not even that, he should be working the merchandise stand. To have him as a champion is an embarrassment to DRAGON GATE. To spare the company any further shame, Doi & YAMATO wanted a title match. Shachi was outraged, and quickly accepted. Both sides continued arguing a bit. Doi promised that he & YAMATO would become champions that DRAGON GATE could be proud of.

The DG All Star team came out to a live rendition of Mochizukis’ theme. Mochizuki said that he has been coming to Sapporo for 22 years now, but he was going to say something he has never said before. He fucking hates Sapporo. Tozawa agreed. The entire city smelled because of their disgusting Genghis Khan dish. Susumu said that he went to a ramen shop and signed an autograph, but wished it was Kyushu style tonkotsu ramen. CIMA said that being forced to live in this city was cruel and unusual punishment. He ran down Shisa, and said his hometown of Engaru wasn’t even a part of Japan. The DG All Stars were going to destroy this team of Hokkaido Hometown Heros. 

Hulk celebrated the Dosanko Team victory. He said that despite what the opposing team said earlier, the entire roster and staff loved Hokkaido. He asked everyone to come to the ring.
Everyone took turns talking. Mochizuki said that in reality he frequently came to Sapporo in his private time, and even spent New Years here. Even though Teisen Hall was closing, Sapporo was still going to be a regular stop. Tozawa said that from his debut, through Tozawajuku, the Metabolic Brothers, KAMIKAZE, and so on he had many great memories of the town. He was also going to eat some Genghis Khan tonight. Susumu said that Sapporo ramen was the best, and he was going to head back to that shop tonight. CIMA said he would love to eventually have his retirement match here. The rest of the roster took turns saying various things. Big R gave a puzzling speech as usual, where he muttered something about matches having a 5 minute time limit and 10 minutes that left fans puzzled. Gamma said that he often brings his family here for vacations. They just came in April and it ended with him & his son arguing, Saito Sensei announced the official end of class. He praised Terumasa, Takuya, Kazuki, and .. Shisa for representing the student body. Shisa was upset at not being called by his name. Eventually he was placated and called Yoshiyuki. Kzy was sad to see Teisen Hall go, but whatever the new destination is, they will make it bigger and better. Hulk closed things out. He said that from the smallest of halls to the Sapporo Dome, there were many buildings they can come back to. He hoped to see everyone there once they decide on one.

In addition to CIMA continuing the cima spelling from the other day, Fujii competed as Don Fujimmy for tonight only.

Yoshino celebrated his first singles tournament win. He has joined Doi as the only ones to hold every title and win both major tournaments. He told brought up T-Hawk and his aspirations for taking a spot at the top of the company. Well. He wasn’t going to surpass Yoshino. Not tonight, anyway. Yoshino wanted to ride his wave of momentum, so he called out BxB Hulk. He beat Kid, Big, and Mochizuki in the early rounds. He has one more Dia HEARTS member to beat. He wanted a shot at the Dream Gate. Hulk could answer in one of two ways. Yes or yes. Hulk quickly accepted, and left Yoshino to close things out. The match was later set for 06/14 in Hakata. Yoshino talked about Teisen Hall, as it has been a place that has brought him success. He mentioned winning the NWA Welterweight title back in the long line my ago. He had long hair but short pants back then. He hoped fans will pack the house one last time tomorrow for the final DRAGON GATE show in the building.

CIMA wrestled as cima today. Since he was teaming with the Jimmyz and came out with them to their entrance theme he felt he should have a special ring name. He didn’t care for the sound of Jimmy CIMA so he went with cima.

6. King of Gate 2015 A Block Semi-finals: T-Hawk (21:26 Night Ride) BxB Hulk

Kagetora spoke briefly after his win in the opener. He talked about tonight being the night of the KoG semi-finals, but there were no Jimmyz involved. The Jimmyz weren’t done yet, they would regroup and fight back to the top as summer draws closer. 

The Class 3B Student Council announced the results of their election. Tatsuki is the student council president. Yoshihito was named class secretary, due to his beautiful handwriting. Nobuhiko, due to his fondness for the baseball club, asked to be named the head of club activity. Saito Sensei rejected this, and put him on regular day duty, in charge of mundane classroom tasks.

T-Hawk celebrated his win. He talked about losing to Susumu in the finals in Sambo Hall last year. He called out Yoshino. Yoshino was one of the top six in DRAGON GATE. But thus far, T-Hawk has toppled three of those six. YAMATO, Doi, and now Hulk had fallen. Yoshino was next. He appealed to Yoshino for a fair, exciting fight. Yoshino praised him for finally giving a decent speech. He also said that he was showing off his true strength & potential by beating those three in consecutive rounds. However, Yoshino was celebrating his 15th anniversary this year. He wasn’t going to lay down and let T-Hawk become king. Quite the opposite. He was going to win. There were 10 years of experience and 10 years of age between them. Both promised to give their all in the finals. Yoshino left. T-Hawk reiterated he had no interest in being the 7th guy. He would claw his way to the top, and he would be the one who carries DG into the future.

Horiguchi gave a quick speech after the opener. He said that while all the Jimmyz were dumped from King of Gate in the 1st round, they would regroup, refocus, and dominate the summer.

Saito Sensei apologized to the rest of the Class3B Student Council for losing. He thanked the exchange students from Dia HEARTS University for participating in today’s’ lesson. He told DK he would not address him by his real name in front of the student body. He looked forward to having another exciting lesson with Kazuki, and praised him for his spirit today. He also very quickly just said “Thank you, Mochizuki.”. Mocchy took exception to the Doi-esque treatment. He thanked the Osaka student body for coming out, and asked them to support Nobuhiko in his 6th period match with MAD BLANKEY later.

Hulk thanked Tozawa for the match. He said this was the type of match he wished to have as Dream Gate champion, not the match we saw in Aichi with Cyber Kong. However, Tozawa refused a handshake. Hulk promised to win KOG. 

Doi blew off the result of the main event. It was just some bullshit 6 man tag after all. He warned T-Hawk to prepare well for their singles match tomorrow.

CIMA welcomed back Eita. He thought we would see the entire Millennials lineup, but Flamita had gone back to Mexico. He entrusted the closing of the show to T-Hawk. T-Hawk thanked the Student Council for their help, and gave his own welcome back greeting to Eita. He asked Eita to address the Osaka fans. He couldn’t thank them enough for the reception they gave him. He admitted that he was incredibly nervous and uneasy during his entrance. Once the match started, despite all his recent issues, pro wrestling is still fun and he was glad to be back. Even without Flamita, the native Millennials would fight hard and aim for the top. T-Hawk closed things out.

Maria interrupted as Ichikawa was pleading his case for a rematch. She said that she wanted revenge for what Takayama did to her last year, and this time it would be a fierce fight. Ichikawa vetoed that idea. After some talk they agreed to team up and fight Takayama 2 on 1.

CIMA yelled at Kzy for winning. Tomorrow CIMA & Fujii would be celebrating their 18th anniversary in wrestling. This was the final match of their 17th year. While this show was all about Takagi and the special guests, this match being before intermission made it the main event of the first half. This was a really special match and Kzy ruined it with his stupid flash pin. Mochizuki sided with them, and chastised Kzy for not reading the atmosphere properly. Eventually they celebrated together, but Fujii couldn’t let it go. He gave Kzy a surprise choke slam before departing. 

Takagi thanked the fans for their large turnout. With their support he was able to win the main event. He said that while Kojima still has the strongest lariat in wrestling, perhaps after feeling the Pumping Bomber today he fond some respect for Takagis’. Kojima was his senpai in Hamaguchi Dojo, perhaps it was time for a senpai/kouhai match. Kojima praised him as one of the best fighters he has gone up against. He welcomed at looked forward to any future encounters.

7. King of Gate 2015 A Block 1st Round: T-Hawk (24:38 Night Ride) YAMATO

CIMA & the former zombies came out to the old Team Veteran theme song, wearing their old colours. CIMA talked about the hell he has gone through over the last few weeks. Breaking his nose and teeth on the concrete in Hakata, losing his hair in Aichi. He was without a unit right now, but he was still an old man with a dream, so the old theme song suited them. He talked about being kicked out of MAD BLANKEY. Doi & MB came out. Doi mocked CIMA for losing such an important match on such a big show. He lost his teeth, broke his nose, and lost his hair. Tonight he would lose in the first round of King of Gate. 

K-ness threw powder in CIMAs’ eyes, then held a chair for the Bakatare Sliding Kick, allowing Doi to win. He wasn’t a zombie or anything like that. He was just K-ness. K-ness of MAD BLANKEY. Saito Sensei made the save for CIMA. He demanded they stop bullying Nobuhiko. He admitted that he was totally preoccupied with Tatsuki & Nobuhiko, and he totally neglected to attempt to reform Makoto. K-ness told him to shut up. PT jumped in, and complained about how often CIMA made him train while they were in MB together. He considered using his brass knuckles to break his nose again. After some arguing, they agreed to an 8 man tag for the June Korakuen. 

Doi went after T-Hawk after the main event. He blew off the win as a fluke. In the 2nd round, he would have to face Doi and there would not be another fluke. He brought up the talk from the end of DEAD OR ALIVE where T-Hawk said he would surpass YAMATO, Doi, Takagi, Tozawa, Yoshino, & Hulk to be the one who leads the company. T-Hawk must have been talking in his sleep, because that was nothing but a dream. They argued over their 6 man tag next week in Osaka. Doi mocked him for talking about Osaka while in Tokyo. Even though he fucking hates Tokyo, it wasn’t fair. They eventually agreed to YAMATO & Doi vs. T-Hawk & Eita for the June Korakuen. T-Hawk closed out the show, promising to win King of Gate and to join the other 6 at the top of DRAGON GATE.
