Verserk attacked Doi during his match, until the Jimmyz made the save. T-Hawk told them to mind their business. Horiguchi told him since Verserk was challenging them for their Triangle Gate titles, this was their business. They suggested Doi be added to their main event team tonight to make it a 10 man tag. Tominaga was added to the Verserk side and the match was set.

Lindaman told Eita his time as Brave Gate champion was up. He was at peak performance and is unstoppable. T-Hawk estimated about 5 minutes tops would be necessary to finish off the Jimmyz and take the Triangle Gate. Kong promised to return to Kyoto as a double champion.

The Jimmyz closed the show trying to recruit Doi. They suggested names like Jimmy Doi, Jimmy Doi-chan, and Jimmy Second Naruki. Doi refused.

Lindaman mocked Eita. He talked down to PT last month, but here he was taking the 1-2-3 today. Isn’t he embarrassed? It won’t just be today. He is going to be taking a 1-2-3 in Osaka in their Brave Gate match. Lindaman can’t be stopped. Eita may as well bow down and vacate the title now to save himself a lot of shame and pain.
Eita wasn’t amused by any of this. It was a lot of shit to talk for a guy who hasn’t even been able to wrestle recently. He is going to wish his time on the disabled list was longer by the time their match in Osaka was over.
Eita sure knew a lot about his injury. Is he that scared of him that he has to keep tabs on his status? He probably hasn’t slept in weeks because he is constantly trembling in fear.

Masato Yoshino made an appearance before intermission. He talked a bit about his injury. It happened right here in this building, about a month ago. There is still numbness in his right arm, but he has started his rehab. Things are going well, but it will be some time before he is able to return. But he will return. Absolutely. He asked the fans to be patient and wait for him. There probably would be no one waiting for and anticipating his return more than Doi. In fact, he saw him lurking around and watching just now. But he got embarrassed and took off. He asked the fan to look forward to his return, cheer for that guy who just took off because he was embarrassed, and to continue to enjoy Dragon Gate.

Cyber Kong boasted that he was in peak condition. There was no stopping this dump truck. The brakes are gone. He has sent CIMA, Susumu, Ishida, Yoshino, and probably some other losers to the hospital in the last month or so. He is the destroyer of Dragon Gate. YAMATO should prepare to be next. When Cyber returns to Kobe next month, it will be with the Dream Gate around his waist. But that isn’t enough. Before the Dream Gate, he was also going to lead Verserk to the Triangle Gate and become a double champion. The Jimmyz came out for a quick back and forth. Saito said the Jimmyz would never lose to a garbage team like this, so Kong could just give up his double champion dreams now.

The lottery drawing to decide the man advantage in the main event was held at the start of the show. T-Hawk was already annoyed. Who came up with these stupid rules anyway? Doi told him to stop talking out of his ass. Across the ring from them was a group of 4 individuals that came together for the sole purpose of taking down Verserk. He had hoped to have Yoshino fighting with him, but it didn’t work out that way. To honor him, he asked for this match to be done under the rules Yoshino created.
Verserk ended up winning the draw.

Verserk came out again after the Saito/Ichikawa match. Kong blamed the Jimmyz for the injury to that cutie-pie El Lindaman. They were so unprofessional! But, he himself has sent a bunch of people to the hospital recently. He demanded a Triangle Gate title shot on behalf of himself, T-Hawk, & Takagi. Saito chastised him on his timing. Who invades the ring after a Stalker Ichikawa match? The Jimmyz accepted the challenge, and Cyber promised to come out of Osaka as a double champion.

Yoshino made a surprise appearance before intermission. He talked about his injury. He was really looking forward to fighting today in Hakata. Even though he couldn’t do a match, he wanted to come and greet the fans. He is rehabbing and undergoing treatment and things are going well, but this isn’t the type of injury you can quickly come back from. It may be a long time before he can stand in the ring in his ring gear, and he hopes the fans will wait for his return. He began to wrap things up when Verserk came out.
T-Hawk asked him why he was even here? He can’t have a match, he can’t do anything. Doi quickly came to make the save and run Verserk off.
DoiYoshi shared some banter. Doi told him he hates him. Really hates him. But he has one thing to ask him. Does Yoshino want him to wait for him to return? Yoshino told him he hates his guts. But if Doi is so smitten that he wants to wait for him, then he can do as he wishes. Doi fired back that Yoshino has a bigger crush on him than vice-versa. This went on for awhile. Doi told him that if he wants Doi to wait for him he should come out and say so! Yoshino said if Doi wants to wait, then he should come out and say so! More of this followed with no end in sight. Doi finally concluded that it was what Yoshino wanted, so he will wait for him. They shook hands. Yoshino found this whole ordeal embarrassing and told Doi his team better win in the main event.

CIMA told Kzy & Maria he expected this to be a much easier match than the one with Takagi & T-Hawk back at Final Gate. That wasn’t the case at all. This was a tough one. He praised Maria for taking what appeared to be a limited character and not only becoming Brave Gate champion, but blossoming into someone that is a hit anywhere in the world.
As for Kzy. He is over 10 years into his career now. He worked hard to change his physique. He took off that t-shirt he always wore. He is motivated, and that motivation is clear to anyone who gets in the ring with him. With wrestlers like him, the future of Dragon Gate is safe. YAMATO, Hulk, Takagi, Doi, & Yoshino lead the way. CIMA and his generation are still here. But it is Kzy & Maria and their generation that are going to make a strong and bright future. He told them that as long as he was Twin Gate champion, he would accept a challenge from them.
Kzy thanked him for his praise. But if CIMA was going to say things like that, he would be foolish to pass up the chance. He wanted another title match, this time with Hulk as his partner. DK accepted, but warned Kzy that he would be trying his best to pin him next time.
Hulk accepted the offer from Kzy. North Tribe 011 were going to come out of the match as Twin Gate champions.

6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: YAMATO (30:12 Gallaria) BxB Hulk
*3rd Defense

The contract signing for the Dream Gate match was held at the start of the show. Hulk promised to break out of his funk here. The Hulk that lost 4 straight matches to start the year was gone. He told the fans to expect an exciting, heart-stopping title match. YAMATO wanted to see Hulk pissed off and fired up. He hasn’t seen him like that, except while drinking. While everyone talks about having a great match and showing off, he had no such intentions. He wanted to beat Hulk at his best. No more.

Doi & Ben-K came out alone. T-Hawk reminded them that this was supposed to be a 4 on 4 match. Oh, that’s right. Cyber took out Yoshino and Kotoka tripped over himself and got injured. Picking apart the remains will be fun. Doi admitted this was a bad situation. Kotoka injured himself. Blew out his knee. Yoshino was badly hurt by that dumbass Cyber Kong. They won’t be back any time soon. He hates Yoshino. Like really hates him. But. He’s worried about him. JUST A LITTLE BIT. Anyway. They had a phone conversation. He reminded him that he hates him. But told him to take care of himself and not to worry. There are things happening behind the scenes. They’ve found two partners more than up to the task. Mochizukis’ theme hit. T-Hawk wasn’t impressed. As expected, they called on the oldest bastard in the company. CIMA came out next. T-Hawk was enraged. Today would be payback for Final Gate.

CIMA stopped everything. He and Mochizuki are the elder statesmen of Dragon Gate. They don’t answer to anyone but President Okamura. But they also listen to Yoshino, in this case. He also had a phone conversation with him. Yoshino told them that if they want to do it, they are more than welcome. But, if they had any other ideas or wanted to give a fresher face a chance, then they should do consider it. Mochizuki didn’t talk to him on the phone, but they did have a brief LINE chat. He & CIMA were in agreement. There were two better choices. The two guys that put it all out there for 20 minutes earlier today but still wanted to fight. They called out Yamamura & Shimizu.

Dr. Verserk interfered in the final stages, bloodying Yamamura with a box attack. He took off his mask to reveal Punch Tominaga. He gave Yamamura a PT Kick, allowing Lindaman to pin him. Linda confirmed him as a new Verserk member afterwards. He was fed up with Over Generation. He is an ace class wrestler and they kept sticking him with a third rate jobber like Gamma. He was going to pay back everyone who mistreated him.

After Ben-K destroyed Mondai Ryu with a spear, Linda turned his attention to Over Generation. Didn’t they used to have 8 members? He & PT left the sinking ship. That broken down piece of trash Gamma is falling apart, and Kong snapped Ishidas’ neck. That leaves CIMA and his little kids. What could they possibly accomplish in Dragon Gate in their current state? Maybe they should use their precious Gong Kids as a recruitment tool. Eita had enough of that talk. They were teammates so he was also civil to Punch, but he was a drag on OG while he was a member and has never done anything in his life. He wasn’t betraying OG, he was running from it like a coward. Also, Lindaman really was in no position to call anyone short.

CIMA brought up Cyber Kong and his recent recklessness. He busted CIMA open at Final Gate, causing a cut that needed 9 stitches. Last month in Korakuen, he did the same thing to Susumu. He gave severe neck injuries to both Yoshino and Ishida. In a span of a month he has injured 4 opponents. CIMA has made his living in this ring for 20 years. He knows anything wrestling is unpredictable and that injuries can happen at any time. He isn’t necessarily putting the blame on Kong, but he can’t ignore the facts. If that is how Kong is going to give, he has to be prepared to take it in the same way. CIMA wants to see how prepared he is first hand. Not just him, but all of Verserk. The remaining members of OG vs. Verserk, all out war.
Takagi was bemused. What kind of war can the OG leftovers even fight? Half their team was on vacation in a hospital bed. He told Yamamura that he had an alright match earlier today. Just alright. But he was young and had potential. He should join Verserk as a servant to study under the great Shingo Takagi. Yamamura was quick to refuse that idea. Takagi must be as dumb as his hair and face look if he thinks he would go for that idea. As for Punch and Lindaman, they were worse than scum. Surely they there was someone in Verserk that understood the current state of things and wanted to leave the unit. CIMA didn’t know if it was the blood loss or the blow to the head, but Yamamura sure turned into a great promo. He agreed with him. Takagi had stupid hair, and Over Generation wanted a match. T-Hawk declined again, since the OG side only had 4 members.
Doi jumped in. He’s been listening. What was that? Verserk has 5 members but OG has 4? This would be a good place for him to get involved. It was eventually agreed that the Newlywed Naruki Doi would join the OG side for this match.
Takagi was still stubborn. Verserk won the tournament last month, they won today. What was in this for them? If they were going to accept the match, OG had to risk something. CIMA had an idea. Earlier, Takagi mentioned someone from OG joining them as a servant. That will be the terms. If the Verserk team can beat the Over Generation + Newlywed team, then Verserk will be able to take one of them as a servant. However, if the OG side wins, they get to steal someone from Verserk and have them join OG. The first ever Loser Loses a Member Headhunting Match. GM Yagi agreed to the terms and set the match.

YAMATO was happy to see that the old Hulk still exists. He looked up to Hulk when he joined the company. While the result today would make it seem like roles are reversed, he wants Hulk to always be the Hulk he looked up to. He thanked him for the match.
Hulk was humble. He’s been wrestling 13 years. He asked the fans if they still wanted to see him. Did they still want to see him fight with Tribe Vanguard? Verserk attacked to break up the pleasantries.
Kong gave YAMATO a Pineapple Bomber. He said he has never seen such a lackluster Dream Gate title match. He is a dump truck with no brakes. He can’t be stopped. He named himself the next Dream Gate challenger. They left Tribe in the ring.

YAMATO was annoyed. This match was barely over and now he had to deal with the next one. Fine. If he wants a match, he has it. Payback will be swift. It will also be easy, according to the response from fans.

Tribe shared some banter to close out the show. Hulk mentioned in passing that Flamita would return next month.

Hulk talked about his slump to start the year, and his upcoming title match with YAMATO. He gave YAMATO credit for knowing just the thing he needed to get himself back on track. He promised to take down YAMATO and take the title.

Yoshino & Ben-K came to save Doi from the Verserk attack after match two. T-Hawk said this had nothing to do with them. Why were they here? Yoshino said Doi looked like he needed saving. Takagi was irritated at his stress relief being interrupted. He was in no mood to deal with this right now. He demanded the Kobe fans root for Verserk this year before leading his troops out. Doi also wondered why they were here. Yoshino said Doi looked like he wanted to be rescued. Doi told him to stop stealing his lines. He figured Yoshino just had a crush on him. Yoshino replied that if Doi had a crush on him he should just come out and say so. Doi got flustered. For a guy called Speed Star it sure took him a long time to get out here. Slow star maybe. Since this match got ruined, he demanded Yoshino put on a good show later.

Verserk were assisted by Dr. Muscle in match four. He & Lindaman ran with wild box attacks to cause the no contest. They focused on Gamma and injured his elbow. He ran down Gamma and his greenhorn partners. He also took glee in ruining the match for the fans that rejected him. This Dr. Muscle isn’t the one that has been appearing lately. You could call this one Dr. Verserk. Best buds Doi & Yoshino, all the other units, and the fans will all see a new brand of hell this year.

Punch Tominaga confronted Eita after the main event. He gave him all kinds of grief for losing in Korakuen, now here he is losing. What kind of champion loses in matches like this? Eita said a guy who doesn’t even have matches is in no position to criticize. DK tried to play peacemaker. With Ishida out and now Gamma possibly injured, Over Generation couldn’t afford to have such petty internal squabbles. This fell on deaf ears, so CIMA intervened. He agreed with what Kid was saying. However, he knew that this wasn’t going to just go away. Eita has an important title match coming up, and if this keeps up it will just be a distraction. He proposed Eita & Punch face off in a singles match at the 02/19 Sambo Hall to settle things.

Tribe Vanguard closed the show. YAMATO said in the 11 years he has known Kzy, he has never seen him on such a roll. He is sure this will bring Tribe the Twin Gate on 02/12. He also talked about the upcoming Dream Gate title match. He’s happy his gamble paid off and Hulk is motivated again. They both promised to hold nothing back in the match.

Kzy celebrated. The engines were turned on, and there would be no stopping Tribe Vanguard this year.

Eita ripped on Tominaga. What was his problem? The first Korakuen Hall of the year and he is slacking off? They would have been better off with Ishida, even with the injury.

This was the fourth straight loss for Hulk. YAMATO wondered what was going on. He just wasn’t feeling it anymore? Kzy saw it too. This was going to be a tough year for everyone in Tribe Vanguard. If Hulk isn’t running with them at full speed, everyone will feel it. No one wants to see Hulk like this. He asked YAMATO what they should do. Hulk said YAMATO was right. He’s 0-4 so far this year. YAMATO was Dream Gate champion, Kzy & Maria were going after the Twin Gate, Flamita was doing his thing in Mexico. He is just holding them back right now. He was frustrated, and had no idea what to do.
YAMATO had an idea. Pro wrestlers need a goal. If they have a goal, they can fight through the tough times, the frustrating times. Hulk hasn’t had a goal since he returned from his injury. This is the real BxB Hulk. The real BxB Hulk is one of the faces of the company. If he needs a goal, YAMATO has one for him. The Open the Dream Gate championship. He challenged Hulk to come after it. They agreed to a title match for the 2/2 Korakuen Hall show.

T-Hawk celebrated the totally clean and fair win over the Triangle Gate champion team. He called out the Yoshino team. Was Yoshino really sure he wanted to fight with these two? Ben-K was powerful but had nothing else going for him. As for Kotoka…seriously? He’s going to try and challenge with these clowns?
Yoshino ripped on T-Hawks’ promo skills. To answer his question, yes he was serious. Was he watching the first round? Ben-K scored the win. Kotoka pinned BxB Hulk in the semifinal. They were going to beat Verserk in the finals.

Verserk attacked Yoshino after the main event until Dr. Muscle made the save. He unmasked to reveal Naruki Doi. He & Yoshino shared a firm handshake. He was here to save the day. Together with Yoshino, Kotoka, & Ben-K, they stood up to Verserk. T-Hawk panicked and demanded they back off. What was Doi doing on here? His team lost in the first round. He should have gotten changed and headed home already. What was up with this cosplay crap? Both sides agreed to face off in an 8 man tag match at the 2/2 Korakuen.
Takagi was disgusted by this turn of events. Doi & Yoshino teaming again? Friendship club horseshit. No one wants to see these guys as a team. Whatever. With that loser Kotoka and that greenhorn Ben-K on the team they would go down easy.

Doi & Yoshino closed the show with some banter.

El Lindaman taunted the Osaka fans, along with the so-called “strongest middleweight champion” Eita. Give the guy who got pinned today a hand. Last year, he challenged for the Brave Gate and lost. But he only lost due to outside interference. He’s beaten Eita twice in recent times, so that qualifies him for another shot. He wants it right here in Osaka in March, so he can throw it back in the faces of these idiot fans that made a fool of him last year. They will have to give him the respect he is due when he becomes Brave Gate champion. Eita admitted that there was interference in their last match. But a win is a win. He can have a rematch, but he isn’t going to win. Eita won’t lose to the likes of him. Linda has 2 wins on him, there will not be a third. Linda can train all he wants. Eita will win. Don’t take your eyes off him.

Mochizuki told Kotoka & Ben-K that even though they have been coming together as a team, this kind of effort won’t bring them any success in Dragon Gate. Ben-K has huge potential, but it can be wasted if he doesn’t have the right person leading him. He urged him to think about that. As for Kotoka; he has been given some leeway by the fans since his return from injury. If you don’t wrestle, you don’t get paid. So he probably has no savings left. He will have to fight and claw to survive. If they need guidance from Mochizuki & Fujii, they will be there. Ben-K thanked them, and promised to take this advice to heart. He & Kotoka will do their best to win. Because he is Ben-K!

Maria & Kzy celebrated. Maria had something to say to CIMA. When Kzy beat him yesterday, CIMA refused to give him a Twin Gate match. Today, Maria pinned DK. He can’t refuse now. Kzy was in on the idea. Tribe Vanguard would be going on the offensive this year.
CIMA said Tribe Vanguard has already ruined 2017 for Over Generation. This wasn’t going to be their year. CK-1 would put a stop to that. Then Over Generation would throw all their support behind Gamma as he goes for the Dream Gate….

YAMATO wondered what was going on with Hulk. Two matches, two losses. If Tribe Vanguard is going to succeed as a unit, they need Hulk playing a lead role. Maria & Kzy are doing their part in going for the Twin Gate. He knows Hulk is capable of more. He wondered if Hulk was fighting with any sort of purpose since he came back. He figures Hulk needs something to light a fire under him. YAMATO needs to take some time to think about what that might be. He left alone.
Doi was a little more cordial. You win some, you lose some. Good times, bad times, etc. YAMATO was sure being a prick about things. Leaving Hulk out here like this, that is taking it a bit far. It’s ok though. He would gladly walk Hulk out. They left together.

Yoshino & the Jimmyz shared some banter to close the show. Yoshino considered becoming Jimmy Masato and joining them. Kagetora suggested Masato Jimino. Susumu offered Jimmito Yoshino. Both those were rejected. Saito came up with Jimmito Jimino. Kanda recalled he was once YOSSINO, so maybe he could be JIMMINO. Eventually they decided that the whole thing was a bad idea, so he won’t be joining them.

6. Shingo Takagi, T-Hawk, Cyber Kong{W} (18:37 Cyber Bomb) Masato Yoshino, Kotoka, Ben-K

Kzy celebrated his big win over CIMA. CIMA said even he is not Stalker Ichikawa, he wanted a restart. He eventually gave in and admitted defeat. Kzy deserved a New Year’s gift for his win. He could have anything he wanted. Anything? In that case, he wanted a Twin Gate title match. CIMA told him not to get carried away. How about the Brave Gate? CIMA didn’t have the authority to do that. That was Eitas’ business. CIMA told him to think about it until the next show in Kyoto.
Scoring such an important win on the first show of the year was going to set the tone for Kzy. He promised big things from both himself and Tribe Vanguard in 2017.

Verserk jumped Doi during his match, and left him laying. CIMA, DK, & Gamma attempted to make the save but were held off. While Verserk was distracted with them, Metal Warrior & Dr. Muscle came out and carried him backstage.

Shimizu berated Ishida & Yamamura for their recent slump. Dragon Gate was counting on them to carry it into the future. They can’t even carry themselves. Mochizuki was a little more lenient. He was impressed by how they fought against himself & Fujii. He expected blood, sweat, & tears from them this year. Shimizu quickly apologized to them and told them to try hard. Eita also told them to get their shit together. Kzy came out while this was going on. He still wanted a Brave Gate title match and was here to inform Eita.
El Lindaman came out of nowhere and delivered a German Suplex to Kzy. A new year, but the same Kzy. No one wanted to hear his incessant chatter. This microphone belonged to El Lindaman! He also reminded Eita that it was only a matter of time before the Brave Gate belt was around his waist.

YAMATO wrote off the Hulk loss as him still being hungover from the various New Year festivities. Tribe Vanguard would break their slump and live up to their name in 2017.

Cyber ran down the Kyoto locals as redneck idiots. This year will be just like last year. Verserk and the Muscle Beast Cyber Kong will rule. Takagi dismissed Yoshino & co as jobbers. Ben-K? What a joke. Verserk are the supreme unit. Verserk left.

Yoshino lamented his first promo of 2017 being under such poor circumstances.
Kotoka was still reeling from all that happened in 2016. He wasn’t going to give up on his quest to demolish Verserk. While everyone else was enjoying the time off, he was training and thinking about revenge. The losing ends today. He asked Yoshino to continue fighting with him. Yoshino said that if it was this fired up version of Kotoka, then he would be happy to. He also made a promise to Ben-K to take him under his wing. Together they would sprint into 2017.
