K-ness celebrated the Jimmyz win. They were on a bit of a roll lately. Kagetora finally took the Brave Gate, and they have an upcoming shot at the Triangle Gate. Not wanting to be left out of the fun, K-ness & Kanda challenged CK-1 to a Twin Gate title match. Kid was willing to accept, and figured the absent CIMA would have no issue with it. He warned K-ness that just because other members of his unit were challenging for titles, that made them Twin Gate worthy. K-ness & Kanda were not in the same league as CK-1. If they want a title match they can have it.
The match was set for 04/23 in Hakata Star Lanes.

Hulk showed off his own “Almighty” Frankensteiner. As most know by now, the Dream Gate championship will be up for grabs at Dead or Alive on 5/5. Whoever survives will take the championship. He warned YAMATO that even though they are stablemates, the Dream Gate is a different matter altogether. He is sorry it may have to come at YAMATOs’ expense, but he will be walking away as champion.
YAMATO hinted at hair and masks being on the line again, and promised the rules for this year will be announced soon.

Takagi boasted over another big Verserk win. He ran down the losing team. It is fine that they took the Triangle Gate, because the belts are cursed. There is nothing but misfortune and suffering ahead for whoever holds them. He told Doi that his luck may be particularly bad. He probably shouldn’t walk down any dark alleys any time soon. Takagi then demanded the prize that was set to be presented to the winning team. Verserk posed for photos, then left Doi and his team to close the show.

Doi was embarrassed to admit that since winning the titles last week, they have lost every match they have had. They were still at the starting line. They were going to hold things down until Yoshino comes back.

Kagetora never gave up in his dreams of becoming Brave Gate champion, even during his long injury last year. He is looking forward to taking on all of the young generation, but he warned them that now that he is champion he won’t be giving up the title so easily.

Takagi blamed the loss on the referee, but admitted he was happy. The Triangle Gate belts are cursed. Tragedy and injury waits for the team that holds them. Doi better hope that bad luck doesn’t follow him into the cage. He should probably make sure nothing bad happens in his private life either. In any case, the show was over. He demanded all the redneck fans go home.
Doi said there was an entire title belt ceremony left to have, so Verserk are the ones that should go home. The new champions celebrated this win as a new starting point. Memorial Gate is their Memorial Day. Shimizu said together they would create a new era. Ben-K had no plans on slowing down, because he is Ben-K. Doi had someone else he wanted to talk to. He called out Masato Yoshino.
Doi showed him the newly won title belts. Yoshino apologized for keeping him waiting, and congratulated the new champions. They shared some banter. Yoshino revealed that the numbness in his right arm is now gone, and his recovery has reached the strength building phase. He was still going to need some time before he can return to the ring, so he asked Doi to be patient for a little while longer.
Doi promised him he would be waiting for him. Since he was in such a good mood, he decided to have a special autograph session for the fans.

All the participants in the Brave Gate tournament had a chance to address the fans at the top of the show.
Kagetora wants this belt more than anything, and he promised to come out of the tournament as champion.
Draztick Boy said he would do his best.
Yamamura admitted that there probably weren’t that many fans who thought he had a chance. But he was going to show everyone what he was made of. He is fighting Kzy in the first round. Kzy has been on fire all year, but Yamamura has been even hotter. Only one of them would keep their momentum going, and it would be him.
Kzy told Yamamura that while he was on a roll, he couldn’t surpass Kzy just yet. He promised to win and make the Brave Gate scene interesting again.
Tominaga was irritated at having to fight a ladyboy.
Maria wanted to return to her form from last year, and regain the Brave Gate.
Lindaman said everyone was talking about their momentum and enthusiasm. The reality is, that means nothing in a tournament like this. You lose and you are out. He was going to win and bring value back to the Brave Gate.
The Brave Gate belt belongs to Eita. He wasn’t going to let someone like Lindaman walk off with it. He is going to break his arm, leave him laying, and get back what is his.

Dragon Fly is a wrestler from Mexico that is in Japan for a tryout. Due to his arrival, the opener was changed to a 6 man tag team match.

YAMATO celebrated his win. As most in attendance know by now, he defeated Cyber Kong in Osaka to retain his Dream Gate title. He beat Shingo Takagi to win last July at Kobe World. He has also beaten Akira Tozawa, Naruki Doi, & BxB Hulk for a total of 4 defenses. There is a lot of pressure and expectations on the Dream Gate champion. He has accepted them and fought off all his challengers. But what about his challengers? Do they just accept their loss and move on?
Naturally, Takagi was irritated. Sure, he lost at World. He could take the title back any time he wanted.
Hulk wasn’t ready to give up after just one loss.
Kong said he removed his mask and showed who he really was to everyone to prove how ready he was to be champion. He lost on a fluke at the end, and he wanted another shot.
Doi figured since Takagi & Hulk had their own issues to settle, and since Kong was just beaten (and injured in the process) that he should jump the front of the line.
YAMATO revealed his intentions. Right here in Nagoya on May 5th, will be Dead or Alive. Heaven or hell. He was going to risk his Dream Gate title in the annual cage match. Assuming the others were willing to risk something.
Takagi was intrigued, but warned YAMATO that he was the one with the most to lose. Sure. He would do it, and take YAMATOs’ belt and his pride.
Kong wouldn’t make the same mistakes he made in Osaka. He was still unstoppable. He accepted the offer.
Doi accepted. He reminded YAMATO that there were no allies inside the cage. Just enemies that would be coming for his Dream Gate title.
Hulk said that even though they were Tribe Vanguard stablemates, the title is a totally separate matter. He was going to take the title (and beat up that asshole Shingo Takagi in the process).

YAMATO closed the show. The match was set. He would risk his title belt, because that is what pro wrestling and Dragon Gate were about. He vowed to escape the cage as champion.
