Mochizuki wondered if Saito was ever going to speak up and challenge him to a title match. It looked like he was going to just leave again today. Saito said he was waiting for Mochizuki to challenge him. Mochizuki was taken aback slightly, but was more than willing to do it. The 47 year old Dream Gate champion was challenging Ryo Saito to a title match. Saito accepted.

The MaxiMuM main event team challenged Tribe Vanguard to a Triangle Gate title match. They accepted.

CIMA talked about the Dragon Kid injury. He was going to be out for several months, but he was ready to fight today. He had to be talked out of getting on the Shinkansen and coming to Tokyo. Replacing him wasn’t so simple. This was a job for an Over Generation member. There are currently only 4 OG members left standing. Problem Dragon & Ishida weren’t ready to do 2 matches in one day. Gamma was up for it but, as DK’s Twin Gate partner CIMA felt it was his duty to take his place. He asked Mochizuki & Fujii to come out and accept his offer to help them throw out some smelly trash but Verserk interrupted. They didn’t agree to this. If that idiot Dragon Kid wasn’t here then the main event will continue as a 3 on 2. Mochizuki & Fujii were ready and willing to do it that way. Verserk were the ones that should be worried. What if they lost? How embarrassing would that be? It would certainly put an end to any of their ambitions as main eventers. Lindaman was so confident he told T-Hawk & Eita to take the night off. He would face Mochizuki & Fujii by himself! Mochizuki quickly tried to make this official but Eita shut Lindaman up. Eita said that CIMA could be in the match, but on one condition. If Verserk wins, CK-1 will have to vacate the Open the Twin Gate. CIMA was willing to agree to anything. He would agree to lick Lindaman’s boots if they lost if it means he could get his hands on them. Lindaman pounced on that statement and added it as another stipulation.

Metal Warrior attacked Kagetora again, this time with a John Woo. He unmasked himself to reveal Yasushi Kanda. He continued his attack, using scissors to cut off a large chunk of hair. He called him an idiot. He was so quick to doubt the other ex-Jimmyz. He really never thought it could be him? He went to cut off the rest of his hair but referee Yagi tackled him. Why? Because hair is very very very important. Kanda clearly doesn’t understand this. If he wants to cut some hair he should cut his own. Why? Because fuck people who get to have long hair! Kagetora actually had to calm Yagi down. He was the one who had his hair cut, so he is the one that gets to be angry. He challenged Kanda to come after the Brave Gate so he could get his hands on him.

Takagi swore up and down that he kicked out at 2. TWO! Everyone saw it. He kicked out. Saito told him to give it up. He lost. 1, 2, 3, 5, 10. No matter the number, Takagi is the loser. Takagi blamed it all on Punch. Saito announced that it was once again time for Mr. Shingo Takagi to make excuses and pass the blame to someone else. Takagi blew it off. This match was a lot of nothing. Whatever. This wasn’t over. Takagi pulled out the Owarai Gate, which he had destroyed during the match. His precious little belt was done. He won’t be able to defend it in his bullshit comedy matches ever again! Saito said that the condition of the title belt wouldn’t alter his style. He will continue to make fans laugh. The other ex-Jimmyz have made moves. They have challenged for and defended championships. He was left behind, but that time has passed. It was time for him to make his move.

Eita demanded that CIMA live up to the stipulation and vacate the Twin Gate. They belong to Eita & T-Hawk now. Lindaman tried to enforce the other stipulation. The one that required a distinguished 20 year legend lick the boots of a rookie only 3 years into his career. Enjoy it. Be sure to lick the whole thing. Take it in. Susumu came in to make the save. No one is licking anything here. He turned to CIMA. It was unfortunate that he had to give up the Twin Gate, but there was nothing preventing him from just taking them right back. He offered to team with him to take out T-Hawk & Eita and win back the Twin Gate. CIMA talked about winning and defending the Twin Gate for over a year with Dragon Kid. They weren’t beaten in a match, they had to give them up in such an unpleasant manner. He accepted the offer from Susumu. They continued to go back and forth under Muscular Countdown played.

It was time for Doi Darts! He called the entire roster to the ring. As has become tradition, some kids were pulled from the crowd to help select the members of the main event for the final Korakuen Hall of the year. Last year, Yoshino made a little girl cry and the selected match was so precarious that Doi & YAMATO had to be added to it. This time around, El Lindaman had his spot hit 6 times, including 3 in a row by the same kid.

The matched ended up:

Yasushi Kanda & El Lindaman & Hyo Watanabe & Don Fujii & T-Hawk vs. Big R Shimizu & Eita & Naruki Doi & Kotoka & Susumu Yokosuka

6. Early Christmas Tag Tournament Finals: T-Hawk⭕️, Eita (19:18 Grande) BxB Hulk❌, Kzy

Mochizuki had some advice for U-T. Even though he is now a member of Tribe Vanguard, he still lost all three matches this weekend. That being said, there is something different about him. Perhaps he has finally found what kind of wrestler he wants to be. He advised him to listen and learn from his stablemates, particularly YAMATO. U-T vowed to become a valuable member of his new unit.

Takagi protested. Anyone with eyes could see he kicked out at 2. Saito called it “Time for excuses with Shingo Takagi”. It may as well have been a 10 count, because Takagi lost. Fair and square. The momentum was now firmly on his side going into their Korakuen match. Takagi blew off losing today. Saito is dumb as fuck. Something like this will only make it worse for him. He has no unit, no friends. Takagi will have the full power of Verserk at his disposal. After this annoyance today, Takagi is prepared to do whatever it takes to end him. Saito said that while he has a comedic side, he can be very serious. He will not let Takagi mock him for his style any longer. He will also now allow himself to become an underling to the likes of Shingo Takagi.

Metal Warrior attacked Kagetora with a Backslide….Kagetora was devastated. After he trusted Horiguchi and confided in him. Why would he do something like this?? He accused Saito and Susumu of being in on it. Why a backslide? It doesn’t hurt! Kagetora thought it was a huge conspiracy. Everyone was acting suspicious. Why were they out to get him like this?!? Today was certainly Horiguchi. Saito even pointed out that the mask had no hair. Kagetora had no one left to trust, so he ran off.

Eita demanded more applause for the tournament win, but didn’t receive any. He asked CIMA where his tag partner was. Dragon Kid? Just like Yamamura, he wasn’t coming back. His knee is destroyed. Over Generation couldn’t even find the manpower to get a team into this tournament. What a joke. He chastised the fans for not even being able to boo properly. T-Hawk berated Tribe Vanguard for being losers, then left them to try and send the fans home happy.

They lost today, but not next time. Tribe Vanguard have their engines at full throttle towards 2018.

Metal Warrior used the Yokosuka Cutter again for his attack on Kagetora.

Saito wanted to make this trip to Hokkaido special, so he proposed putting the Owarai Gate on the line. Gamma wasn’t sure. He wasn’t really that kind of wrestler. He’s never done comedy or anything. Saito managed to talk him into it and was successful in defending.

Kagetora came out to seek advice from Horiguchi. Based on the attack thus far, it is clear that Metal Warrior is a conspiracy between Susumu, Saito, & K-ness. Why his former Jimmyz friends are doing this to him is causing him great worry. Horiguchi is the only one he can trust now. What should he do about this? Horiguchi suggested that Kagetora have both Susumu & Saito second him tomorrow. Since K-ness didn’t make the trip to Hokkaido, there would be no chance of a Metal Warrior attack. Kagetora found this to be a great idea. He was glad he consulted with Horiguchi over this problem and he felt like a heavy weight was lifted from his chest.

CIMA, Gamma, & Mochizuki had a conversation about their generation. Mochizuki lost yesterday, CIMA today. Gamma as well. CIMA talked about the dire straits that Over Generation finds itself in. Problem Dragon is back, but still has a way to go before he can go full time. Ishida still has a bad neck. Yamamura is also out for the long term. Now, Dragon Kid will have to miss several months due to a knee injury. That leaves himself & Gamma as the only regular members. He himself is traveling a lot lately, so if Gamma takes the day off there would be no Over Generation presence whatsoever. Still. They are stubborn enough to show people like Eita that they aren’t finished yet.

T-Hawk & Eita and North Tribe had a brief verbal confrontation after the main event. Kzy promised to end the Sapporo Early Christmas tour on a happy note by winning the tag tournament.

This time, Metal Warrior gave Kagetora the Darkness Buster. Shimizu tried to console him. He told Kagetora that he solved the mystery. Metal Warrior was clearly K-ness.! Kagetora agreed. This was a conspiracy. Susumu, K-ness., & Saito have all attacked him. Was Horiguchi next? Shimizu told him to keep it together. You have to be prepared for these sorts of things. Kagetora was upset over being attacked by his former Jimmyz friends. Horiguchi wasn’t in the building today. He planned on giving him a call so they could discuss this turn of events. Shimizu turned his attention to U-T. Shimizu admitted he has taken a liking to him. He invited him to join MaxiMuM. Doi immediately jumped in and put a stop to it. Does Shimizu even pay attention? U-T was going to join either Tribe Vanguard or Over Generation later. He’s totally clueless! He can’t make decisions like this without first running it by Doi & Yoshino. Shimizu is the lowest ranked guy in MaxiMum. Lower than Ben or Kotoka. He can’t make these decisions. MaxiMuM just added Jason Lee. That’s enough for now. He apologized to U-T for the trouble.

Eita told Susumu not to get too excited over beating the likes of Punch. Eita berated Punch for his constant failures and backfiring interference. He should watch how it is done in the main event when the rest of Verserk take out those old timers. He ran down the fans. They don’t know how to cheer, they don’t know how to boo. They just sit there like idiots. Why are they even here? They are here to see Verserk, of course. He promised a win in the main event to send them all home happy.

Maria was once again absent due to injury. The match was quickly changed to a 3 on 2 handicap match. Kzy was very excited after the win. He welcomed U-T to the unit with open arms. U-T was grateful but reserved. Kzy pressed him about it, and he showed a little more gratitude. Hulk said he parents must be very proud of him.

Takagi and Saito had a confrontation after the main event. Takagi told him that he wouldn’t even make it to their “special” match in Korakuen. They were going to go head to head in Sapporo and that would be where this whole thing ends. Saito can then go back to his precious Owarai Gate title and bullshit comedy. Their ideas of what pro wrestling is are very very different. Saito isn’t a worthy opponent for him. If he manages to make it to Korakuen that would be an extermination match. Saito wondered if cheating to win and dirty tactics were Takagi’s idea of what pro wrestling is. Was Takagi even capable of doing a match that makes the fans happy? Dragon Gate was serious but it was also about entertaining the fans. He won’t let someone like Takagi belittle his style. He won’t let their tag tournament match end via the same rule breaking as today. It would end with Takagi going down for the 3 count. In Korakuen he would be driven into the mat for good.

Lindaman didn’t care about any of this. His focus was on Mochizuki & Fujii. They may have been getting the best of him recently, but in Korakuen he would have the greatest tag team in Dragon Gate history on his side in T-Hawk & Eita. MochiFujii would just be another pair of broken down has-beens after their match. Mochizuki was impressed with his confidence. However, it would actually be better for T-Hawk & Eita if Linda wasn’t in the match at all. It would increase their chances and would save Lindaman from another ass kicking.

Metal Warrior once again attacked Kagetora. This time he gave him Susumu’s Mugen.

CIMA vacated the Owarai Gate, so Ichikawa demanded his match with Saito be made into match to decide the new champion. Saito told him that CIMA vacated the title because no one wants the title. It is an annoyance. He didn’t want it either so today would not be a title match. Ichikawa pleaded with him. This was the first major event in Tohoku so they should get to see a new champion crowned. Saito reminded him that his record against him was 100-0. Saito eventually agreed as long as Ichikawa promised to try harder than he normally does. In the fan result, Ichikawa received applause from around 22 fans. The rest cheered for Saito so he became the new champion.

Verserk attacked Saito afterwards. Takagi wondered why he was slacking off in a match like this when he has such an important fight coming up in Korakuen Hall on 12/5. The first event like this in Tohoku and he chooses to do some bullshit comedy match? What a joke. If this was all he could bring himself to do then they should just cancel their match and Saito can be forced to join Verserk without any beatings. Saito defended doing comedy matches. Putting smiles on faces and making the fans laugh was also an important part of the Dragon Gate style. Things would be different in Korakuen. There would be no laughing when he puts Takagi down on the mat for the 1-2-3. Verserk attacked him again. Tribe Vanguard came to make the save.
They had a back and forth with Verserk about the main event. Eita and Verserk would never lose to a group of hicks like these three. The rest of the hicks in Sendai can look forward to the worst of endings to this so called big show.
YAMATO gave a quick speech. First things first, Eita is from a backwoods redneck ass town in Nagano so he has a lot of nerve calling anyone a hick. Doing a big show in Tohoku has been his dream for a long time. He hopes that a lot of fans in Tohoku had the same dream. Today that dream came true. Losing in the main event just wasn’t an option. He promised to defeat Verserk and send everyone home happy.

Kagetora confronted Susumu after his match. In Nobeoka it was the Yokosuka Cutter. Today it was the Mugen. The evidence could not be any more clear. Metal Warrior is Susumu. Susumu denied the allegations. He mentioned that while Metal Warrior has used the Yokosuka Cutter & the Mugen, he also used the Cycling Yahoo. Maybe he should be interrogating Ryo Saito. Kagetora said that maybe it was a RyoSuka scheme, but Metal Warrior is absolutely Susumu. Kagetora said he is devastated by this turn of events. If he wanted a Brave Gate shot, all he had to do was ask. Kage is ready for it. Susumu said he is the one that isn’t ready for it. He isn’t interested. Kagetora asked him to do him one favor. Next time he attacks him, do it without the mask on. Susumu was totally lost at this point so he just asked the fans to enjoy the rest of the show.

YAMATO closed the show with a speech. Today wasn’t the goal. Today was just the first step off of the starting line. Sadly, he lost the Dream Gate title back in September and was unable to main event today as champion. The venue today was also a bit lacking. Fans in the back probably had a hard time seeing the ring. That won’t happen next year. On September 9th 2018, Dragon Gate will; for real this time; hold their first ever show in Sendai Sun Plaza. It is a large hall with 3 floors of seats. Everyone will be able to clearly see the ring. There was no Dream Gate match today. Next year, there will be. If he has to take the title back himself to fulfill this promise he will do so. Maybe. Tribe Vanguard shared some banter. YAMATO thanked the fans for coming out and making today a huge success.

Hulk promised that Tribe Vanguard would win the Battle for U-T on Tuesday. He offered a handshake but U-T refused. He simply bowed and left the ring.

Metal Warrior attacked Kagetora again, this time applying the Cycling Yahoo.

Takagi told Saito not to celebrate his win today. This was nothing. The real fight is their upcoming match in Korakuen. After Takagi destroys him he will have to join Verserk and live the life of a bottomfeeder. His Verserk ring gear has already been made, since the result isn’t in doubt. He will regret ever picking a fight with Shingo Takagi. Saito should enjoy his remaining days as a happy go lucky wrestler because they will be coming to an end on December 5th.

Saito promised that Takagi would be the one embarrassed. He hasn’t done anything since the Jimmyz broke up but their match will be the first of many challenges he plans on making.

Stalker Ichikawa came out after the opener and demanded a match. Nobeoka only gets 1 show per year and to deprive them of a Stalker Ichikawa match is too cruel. CIMA said he would wrestle him if the Owarai Gate was on the line. Ichikawa accepted with the usual results.

Kagetora was given a Yokosuka Cutter and laid out by Metal Warrior after his match. Backstage, Kagetora was very quick to blame Susumu. The Yokosuka Cutter is his move, so it has to be him. Susumu had no idea. It was his move, but it wasn’t him. Kagetora was convinced it was him. Why would he wear a mask and attack him? If he wanted a Brave Gate title match all he has to do was come out and ask. Susumu had no intentions of going after the Brave Gate. It wasn’t even on his mind since he is still getting over his failed attempt on the Dream Gate. Kagetora refused to believe him. They fought side by side for long enough for him to know Susumu when he sees him.

Ben-K was pulled from the show due to an illness.

Backstage, Kagetora challenged K-ness. to a Brave Gate title match. It was accepted and later set for 11/19 in Nobeoka.

Verserk ran wild on Saito until the main event team came to save him. Kanda’s betrayal of the Jimmyz is what led to the match being made in the first place. Why isn’t he in it? Takagi told that if he was so infatuated with Kanda, Kanda would gladly welcome the chance to kick some more ass. Takagi declared the match would now be 5 on 4. Mochizuki never said anything about 5 on 4. He rallied Saito to join up. Takagi called it unacceptable. He was just a comedy wrestler with no friends now. The likes of Saito no longer belonged in main events. Saito smashed him with a box. Someone with a haircut like Takagi has no right to call anyone else a laughingstock. He asked Mochizuki to let him join them. Takagi was furious at the sneak attack. Even though he vetoed Saito & Susumu teaming last month, he would allow it just so he can pay him back.

Doi & Yoshino invited Jason Lee to join MaxiMuM. They have teamed with him several times since he came in and they feel he has a very bright future. He accepted and is the newest member of the unit.

Eita betrayed Dragon Kid in the final stages of the main event, returning to Verserk. He forcibly removed his mask and taunted Over Generation with it. He was sick and tired of being nice and well behaved. Over Generation was nothing but old timers and cripples. CIMA was speechless. Eita mocked him. For someone who talks and talks and talks as much as CIMA he had nothing to say? CIMA is old and fat. So was Gamma. Ishida and Problem Dragon will never be the same after their neck injuries. What about Yamamura? The truth is he is never coming back. The reality is, his neck is beyond repair and he will never be back. CIMA was visibly shaken by this. Eita was welcome to say whatever he wanted about him, but he promised not to speak publicly about Yamamura. Eita didn’t care about any of that anymore. He was done with this team of old men, midgets, and cripples. He never thought of Dragon Kid as a teacher and he expects him to put some respect on his name the next time he addresses him. CIMA & DK struggled to recover from the betrayal, but Mochizuki was ready to interject.

He had no idea about the inner workings of Over Generation but he does have an idea of how to put punks like Eita in their place. He has a friend who is even better at it than him. He called out Don Fujii. This was a job for MochiFujii. Dragon Kid told Eita that he could do whatever he wanted, but he should understand that by taking his mask today he made a huge mistake. Kid asked to be a part of whatever Mochizuki & Fujii were planning. Eita had the perfect opponents for these 40 year old bastards. Young Verserk. Himself, T-Hawk, & El Lindaman. Mochizuki was more than happy to accept. He recalled some good times beating the hell out of them back in the Millennials days. The match was set for next month in Korakuen.

Verserk posed for photos and went to leave but Saito stopped them. Actually, just Takagi was enough. Today, Takagi had mocked him and made fun of his wrestling style. The other Jimmyz have been very active since their breakup so it was time for him to make a move. His move was to take out Shingo Takagi. Takagi blew it off. His neck was kinda sore and didn’t feel like talking. Saito has no unit, no titles. Why would the Great Shingo Takagi lower himself to wrestle a comedy wrestler? No. No chance. Saito called him a coward and challenged him to go 1 on 1. Takagi told him that if he wanted a match he would first have to go through Punch or Lindaman. Takagi eventually accepted, but only one one condition. If Saito loses, he will have to join Verserk. Not just as a member, but as the lowest ranked member. Yes, even lower than the likes of Lindaman and Punch. Even though Takagi thought he was dumb as hell to accept the terms, Saito did. The match was set for next month in Korakuen.

CIMA talked about Ricochet coming back. It was originally intended to only be for The Gate of Destiny, but things worked out and he was able to do a few more matches. Today was his final Dragon Gate match. It was time for his graduation ceremony.

Kzy was the first victim in Japan of the Double Rotation Moonsault. It’s a memory that still stings his chest and he is proud of it. He hoped that he was a little better in their match today than he was back then. Ricochet is truly great. Truly the king.

YAMATO said that Ricochets’ superstar aura has grown as much as his hair has fallen out. He recalled their battle for the Dream Gate several years ago and apologized if he did anything bad to him. He wished him good luck.

Horiguchi really didn’t have many in ring memories of him, but they actually ended up hanging out a lot. He was really a nice guy and good at everything. They went bowling together and he bowled over 200. His first time golfing and he hit the ball 300 yards. Himself, Ricochet, Rich Swann, & PAC once went to karaoke together. He could dance and he could sing better than him. He promised himself he wouldn’t cry, but when he saw how bald Ricochet had become he couldn’t help it. He asked him to become the greatest H-A-G-E in the world.

DK had many memories, including their battles over the Brave Gate. Even though he was twice his age, he learned a lot from Ricochet. DK speaks no English but they communicated through body language and feelings. He hoped Ricochet would continue to grow and become a bigger star. He would be watching.

Yoshino first met him in the United States. Seeing that there were wrestlers in America that could do the things Ricochet could do had a huge impact on him. They were stablemates in WORLD-1 International, at least until Doi betrayed them, and then again in Monster Express. He’s gotten to know him and become friends with him. Watching him compete again today, it has just become more evident he is a genius. With advances in technology, this isn’t the last time they will ever talk. They exchange messages all the time. He does hope that they can meet again face to face some time in the future.

Doi ran down from the commentator table in the balcony. Doi wanted to brighten up the mood a little bit, since everyone was so sad. This has become an annual thing. Who was it going to be next year? The Big R Shimizu Graduation Ceremony? Nah, probably not. He fought together with Ricochet in several units and countries. His ability exceeds words. But this isn’t their final goodbye. Ricochet isn’t retiring. He isn’t dying. They will both continue to grow and get better. One day, they will again meet in the ring. He thinks the Die Fly is the best finisher in wrestling.

CIMA talked about the first time he tried to get in touch with Ricochet. Ricochet was only 17 at the time and he totally ignored the e-mail that CIMA sent. A year passed. Matt Sydal was competing in Dragon Gate at the time and he asked Ricochet if he actually got the mail. He did, but didn’t think it was real. He was just a kid and didn’t expect to be asked to come to Japan. He was brought to Dragon Gate USA, and the rest was history. Speaking of history, while Kzy is right that he was the first one in Japan to go down to the Double Moonsault, it was Doi who was the first victim. He thanked him for coming back to see everyone one more time. He knows Ricochet has a bright future ahead of him. He is the highest flyer in the world and has the highest potential. He called President Okamura to the ring. Mr. Okamura rarely appears, outside of his annual speech at Kobe World. Mr. Okamura said that they arranged a hotel for Ricochet this time, but he asked to stay with everyone else at the dojo. He slept, trained, and rode the bus just like he had in the past. The one thing that surprised him, was the new tattoo on his arm. It was the Dragon Gate logo. He was incredibly moved and very happy that Ricochet chose to come back for his final matches. As with PAC & Uhaa in the past, it is natural to want him to stay with Dragon Gate forever. But he has to spread his wings and fly. It is the same feeling as it was with Akira Tozawa last year. He isn’t leaving. He is being sent out into the world. His skill is great but his heart is greater. Thank you, Ricochet.

CIMA mentioned in passing that Ricochet had suggested a few foreign talents to him. He promised to bring a foreigner than carry on Ricochets’ legacy.

Ricochet was 21 when he first came to Dragon Gate. He was skinny and untrained. Everything he knows now about training, dieting, and professionalism he learned while he was here. He has spent the last two years traveling the world. No matter where he goes, Dragon Gate is his family. Wrestlers, staff, fans, H-A-G-E. They are all family. This is his last night in Dragon Gate but it isn’t good bye. It’s “See you later”. No matter where he goes or what he does, this will be home.

6. Mondairyu Comeback Match
Shingo Takagi, T-Hawk⭕️, Yasushi Kanda, El Lindaman (19:07 Cerberus) CIMA, Gamma, Eita, Mondairyu❌

U-T said he has had his confidence boosted greatly during his recent winning streak. He told all the units he was waiting for one of them to come and draft him.

T-Hawk ran down Mondairyu as a weak loser. No one wanted to see him come back. CIMA praised him for lasting 19 minutes. The old Mondairyu would have been finished off in 5 minutes or so by such stuff competition.

Dragon Kid invited U-T to join Over Generation. U-T was starstruck and unprepared to receive an invite so quickly. He was on the verge of accepting when Tribe Vanguard interrupted. They also wanted him to join. U-T was torn. Each Tribe member appealed to him. Maria always liked him even more than Eita when they were together in the Millennials and would love to be close to him again. CIMA said that was more of a negative than a positive. Dragon Kid reminded him of back when he was in 5th grade and he came to see Toryumon in Nagoya. He was inspired to become a wrestler by seeing Dragon Kid that day. He has a chance to see him up close every day now. Hulk tried to appeal to his love of drinking. Maybe after the show they could head out to Sannomiya and have a few. U-T was out for almost a year after surgery. Hulk has also missed long periods of time after surgery. They have things in common, and Hulk has a great interest in seeing how U-T rebounds from his injuries. YAMATO also was interested in him. He wasn’t big or tall, but he has a lot of potential. Tribe Vanguard will ensure he fulfills it. U-T proposed the two teams fight for him. They were appalled at his nerve, but eventually agreed to a U-T contra U-T match at the next Sambo Hall show. He will join the winning unit.

CIMA turned his attention to Eita and the identity of his opponent at Gate of Destiny. It will be Ricochet. Ricochet will return to Dragon Gate for a limited engagement and his first target is Eita.
