7. King of Gate 2017 Finals: T-Hawk (23:50 Night Ride) Naruki Doi

Young MaxiMuM came out after the opener. This time their attention was towards Yamamura & Ishida. Losing to a joke like Horiguchi? Pathetic. The Jimmyz & Over Generation were no match for Young MaxiMuM. Eita was amused. Young MaxiMuM? What exactly did they think they were capable of without Doi or Yoshino? They were going to find out in the semifinal tonight just how much of a match Over Generation is. Horiguchi appreciated their youthful enthusiasm, but he was the winner of this match. Yamamura should consider this payback for yesterday. As for Ben-K, he was going to have to answer to a very angry Susumu later today.

Kagetora took out Punch in short order. Verserk weren’t safe from the Jimmyz warpath. PT should be ashamed of himself for even showing up in this shape. It’s an embarrassment to the company. He was somehow still an eligible weight for the Brave Gate. So was his stablemate El Lindaman. He challenged both of them to come for his title. Kzy showed up and reminded Kagetora that he challenged Flamita yesterday. Kagetora was furious with Kzy. He said yesterday he would get in touch with Flamita, yet Flamita isn’t here today. What a liar! While Flamita was due back soon, it takes more time than 12 hours to get here. Kagetora became even more mad at him, and challenged HIM to come after the Brave Gate. There was clearly no reasoning with him in his current state, so Kzy just once more agreed to relay the message to Flamita when he arrives.

Shimizu & Kotoka interfered in the Susumu vs. Ben-K match. The other Jimmyz also got involved to cause a no contest. Susumu just had one thing to say to them. He was usually very professional, but they have pushed him past his breaking point.

Kzy celebrated his win. There was a lot of hot fighting going on right now between the other units. It may be hot, but Tribe Vanguard is the spiciest. Maybe it was time to blend some of that spice into the mix.

OG and MaxiMuM got into it again after their match. Eita told Kotoka he saw the power of a King of Gate semifinalist today. Who from Young MaxiMuM even did anything in the tournament? Shimizu? Kotoka and Yoshino weren’t in because of their injuries that they were now back from. Is Over Generation really proud of having some third rate comedy wrestler like Gamma represent them in such an important tournament? Gamma hit him in the head with the Singapore Cane. Who was he calling a comedy wrestler? It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, anyway. At least fans are entertained whenever Gamma is around. You can’t say that about Kotoka. As for King of Gate, he has won the whole damn thing in the past. The injury excuse? Gamma was injured on the exact same day as Kotoka and Yoshino but he made it into the tournament. Maybe he is just a third rate indy wrestler, but he isn’t dead weight like Kotoka.

T-Hawk wasted no time in calling out YAMATO. He also wasted no time in making his intentions clear. He won King of Gate. He is number one. He wanted a Dream Gate title match. YAMATO congratulated him on his win. However, while he won the tournament he didn’t beat YAMATO in doing so. Why should he get a title shot? T-Hawk persisted. Didn’t YAMATO want a final showdown between them to decide who is the real number one? YAMATO was fine being number two. T-Hawk was flustered and told YAMATO to just leave if he wasn’t going to be serious. YAMATO gave him the go2hospital 1. That was his real answer. Yes. T-Hawk is now the #1 contender. YAMATO was always ready and willing to defend his title against one of the new generation. Once again, congratulations on winning the tournament. Well fought. He will soon come to find that the Dream Gate title is something totally different. He still had plans for Dragon Gate and he can only accomplish them as champion. He wasn’t planning on handing the title over to someone who had no plans. They can decide the future like men. They can fight for it. T-Hawk promised to follow up this win today by becoming the top champion.

YAMATO somehow ended up closing out the show. He thanked the Hakata fans for coming out this weekend. He once again stated that King of Gate was tough, but the Dream Gate is on a different level. He promoted the 11/26 big show in Sendai. T-Hawk is going to be a tough opponent, but he wasn’t going to lose the title to him. When they return to Hakata in August, he would still be champion.

Pairings for the King of Gate semi-finals were drawn at the top of the show. T-Hawk vs. Eita & Doi vs. Takagi were the match-ups. Eita just considered it another step on the way to the finals. T-Hawk told his old Millennials partner that they know each other really well. Eita thinks he does, at least. Not anymore. He is not the same T-Hawk. Takagi was happy to face off with Doi in Hakata. Doi has embarrassed him here before. Today it was his turn. He was going to just do what he does best. With Doi broken and out of the way, they would have an all Verserk final and prove once and for all they were the strongest unit. Doi played to the fans. Everyone knew he was better than Takagi. The fans would be totally behind him on his way to victory.

Kanda put Kotoka, Ben-K, & Shimizu on notice. They were no match for the experience the Jimmyz have.

Kagetora asked for some time after his win. He was Brave Gate champion. But the tournament he won it in was missing someone. Flamita didn’t participate. He didn’t feel as though he could really consider himself champion until he beats him. He asked Kzy to get in touch with him in Mexico and tell him he had a title shot waiting. Kzy was irritated at having to play messenger, but Flamita would be back soon. He would pass the message along.

Lindaman warned MaxiMuM that while they were distracted by the Jimmyz, Verserk were going to take their Triangle Gate titles.

Verserk and MaxiMuM got involved after the main event, leading to a huge brawl. Kotoka mocked Horiguchi for losing to Yamamura today. Losing to a green boy, doesn’t he feel degraded? Horiguchi reminded him that he got squashed by Kanda earlier. Yamamura wondered why they were out here at all. Kotoka should keep his name out of his mouth.
T-Hawk faced off with Doi. Was he ready for the finals? Was he ready to lose? Doi has been ready for the finals since the thing started. He is always ready. It really doesn’t matter who his opponent ended up being. It just happens to be T-Hawk. The last thing in his way. He wanted to win King of Gate and get back on top of Dragon Gate. Lindaman proclaimed T-Hawk as the winner of King of Gate, and Verserk as the strongest unit. Yoshino said that while the Jimmyz were the first target for MaxiMuM, they were aware of OG & Verserk. The punk kids need to fall back. By getting involved with MaxiMuM they were just putting targets on their own backs. Horiguchi admitted MaxiMuM & Over Generation had youth on their side. But youth is no match for experience. The Jimmyz are all over 35. They have been fighting together as a unit for 6 years. Wrestling isn’t just about youth and power. The Jimmyz will show that to all of them. CIMA had a lot to say, but most of it was said already. Just watching today, it was clear that the next generation was catching up with his. Even within his own unit. Yamamura was on the rise. Eita made the King of Gate semifinals. Ishida fought back from a serious injury. But CK-1 were still Twin Gate champions. Gamma was going to be Gamma doing Gamma things. Those are things no one else can do. This combination of youth and experience would leave Over Generation as the winners of any unit warfare.

Since CIMA would win C Block if he won today, Yoshida offered to lay down for him for 1,000,000 yen. CIMA considered the offer, and wondered if he had enough in his account to initiate the bank transfer. Yoshida said that the price was without tax. CIMA noted the slump Yoshida was on. Takashi Yoshida. His name was more boring than the Jimmyz names. The match started with no bribe paid. Yoshida aimed for a countout, and with ample help from Verserk he managed to pull it off. CIMA was eliminated from C Block, giving Naruki Doi the spot in the final four.

Takagi tried to persuade Lindaman to lay down for him. This was his last match, and if he wins he will have a high chance of reaching the final four. Lindaman was already eliminated. He should do the right thing for his leader. Lindaman complied, and laid down for him. Takagi covered, but was quickly rolled up in a small package for a surprising near fall.

Punch & Lindaman attacked Doi after his match. MaxiMuM were so focused on the Jimmyz that they have lost sight of the fact that as Triangle Gate champions, everyone was coming for their heads. Doi wasn’t really sure what this was all about. If Verserk wanted a title match they could have one, but not while King of Gate was going on. He was on top of Block C now. His fate would be decided by the result of CIMA vs. Yoshida next week in Kyushu. He isn’t optimistic, given the current state of Yoshida. But if he can do him that favor and beat CIMA, Doi advances to the final four.

Kotoka mocked the Jimmyz. Once again, they lost to the so-called weakest link. Horiguchi had nothing to say. He lost again and to make it worse he lost to his own hold. The Jimmyz were going to win this feud, and put an end to things once and for all.
