6. 5 Unit Survival Race Match: CIMA, Dragon Kid, Eita, Takehiro Yamamura{W} (25:00 Stardust Press) Shingo Takagi, T-Hawk, Takashi Yoshida, El Lindaman{L}

U-T shook hands with the Jimmyz, but Yoshioka & Watanabe refused.

Verserk attacked Maria, but she escaped after kneeing Takagi low.

Mochizuki told Shimizu they were even now, after Shimizu scored a fall on him in Nagoya. Shimizu told him DG would have no future if old timers like monopolized the Dream Gate opportunities. When they come back to Hakata in October the champion will be Big! R! Shimizu!

YAMATO told Hulk that even though they were in favorable position right now, there is still a chance Tribe Vanguard will have their very existence on the line in Ota. As Dream Gate champion, he will have important things to do that day. Should they end up in the disbands match, he was trusting the fate of the unit to Hulk. Hulk promised to protect both the unit and a bright future for DG alongside the other Tribe members.

The ending of the main event got out of hand, with Punch & Mondai Ryu getting involved. T-Hawj complained about OG using underhanded tactics to steal another win. A meaningless win. They already have 10 losses. They have a 99% chance of being disbanded. Takagi ripped on YAMATO for putting his title ahead of his unit. As for Ota, he had an idea. The name of the show is Dangerous Gate. He wanted to make it really dangerous. Instead of a Triangle Gate title match, he wanted to have Dragon Gate’s first ever barbed wire match and turn the show into a blood fest.
CIMA didn’t know anything about that. He thanked Over Generation for everything today. Mondai Ryu for bringing the salt, Yamamura for winning, Ishida & Gamma for their support. His neck was still in rough shape, but he made Mondai Ryu promise that he would return in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Over Generation will still be there for him. Right now they are 8-10. Old Generation has probably lost more than the young generation. As YAMATO said earlier, the champions will have other things to do in Ota. CK-1 are still Twin Gate champions so they will surely have to make a defense. That is fine though, because Eita, Yamamura, and the rest are more than capable of protecting the unit on their own.

Fujii put the new members of Fujii Heya through rigorous drills before their dark match.

Shimizu told Mochizuki that he and his peers have sat idly by while old timers like him have monopolized the Dream Gate title scene for far too long. After the September Korakuen, he would be the one opening the door to his dreams.

Chaos ensued after the main event, with every unit getting involved in a brawl. Maria went straight for Kagetora and gave him another long kiss. Lindaman called for some sanity. Has this survival race really made everyone this out of control? Only Verserk was allowed to act like this! He talked about the results of the day, with 2 losses each for OG & the Jimmyz. Even the so called Hero of Nagoya Dragon Kid was beaten by the biggest loser in the world. Verserk were still Triangle Gate champions and that made them the most important unit. They can’t lose in this league. They will easily coast into first place way ahead of everyone else and withdraw from the whole thing, leaving the other units to fight for their lives. Kanda told him in no uncertain terms that everyone knows Verserk can’t win without cheating and he would pay them back for interfering in his match earlier. The Jimmyz would survive. Maria told everyone to stop with the scary faced and calm down. Tribe Vanguard wouldn’t be breaking up because she was around to protect it. She looked in the direction of the Jimmyz and said that they had what she was aiming for and they should be prepared. Tribe left.
Eita mused that Maria was thinking about herself in the middle of a team effort. That isn’t relevant to him though. Over Generation is 4-5 now and that is a bad place to be. Their only choice to win every single match from now until the end. Over Generation would survive. Mon-Dai-Ryu!
Kotoka finally got to celebrate winning the main event. MaxiMuM isn’t just Doi & Yoshino. Young MaxiMuM will do their part in making sure they survive.

Gamma was pulled from the card due to an elbow injury suffered on 8/8.

Fujii had some harsh words for Shun, Hyo, Takashima, & Yoshioka. They keep losing and not progressing. They will never become regulars if they continue in this fashion. Don’t they want more for themselves? Yoshioka said they wanted to make an impact and become regulars. To help them achieve this, he asked Fujii to reactivate Fujii Heya and guide them. He was firmly against the idea but they eventually talked him into it. Hyo & Shun have characters and gimmick names. Yoshioka & Takashima don’t. His first act as their leader will be to come up with better ringnames for them. Fully aware of the types of names Fujii has come up with in the past they were hesitant. If they refused, then he wouldn’t go through with Fujii Heya. They relented. He will unveil their new names next month.

Maria attacked Kagetora after his match, rendering him unconscious with a deep kiss. She also planted a kiss on the Brave Gate title belt, then left without saying a word.

CIMA talked about the Survival Race. Mondai Ryu hasn’t had a match as an OG member yet. He has had new gear and a new mask made but hasn’t been able to use them. It was important that he have a place he belongs to when he returns, so OG will be fighting with that purpose in mind.

Over Generation & MaxiMuM came out after the main event for a confrontation. Doi made fun of Verserk for getting swept. Kotoka got in on it, but Eita kicked him from behind. Verserk may have gotten swept, but Kotoka was still a loser. T-Hawk was irate. Trash units talking trash. After more arguing, they agreed to a Survival Race 3 way six man tag for the September Korakuen Hall. The winners of the first fall will be safe and receive credit for a win. The eventual losing team will be docked for two losses.

Tribe Vanguard started to close the show when Mochizuki interrupted. Even though the focus of this tour was on the units, the independents were as active as ever. He pinned YAMATO in Kyoto the other day, so he wanted a Dream Gate title match. YAMATO said that one win over the champion wasn’t quite enough to earn a championship opportunity. He was about to accept, but Big R Shimizu came back out. Mochizuki has one win over YAMATO. A fluke win in a tag match. Shimizu reminded everyone he pinned the champion in 3 minutes in a singles match a few months ago. He should be the next challenger. He & Mochizuki agreed to a #1 contender match for the September Korakuen.

Tribe Vanguard closed the show.

Fresh off his defense over Flamita at World, Kagetora said he was ready every day to accept another challenge. He addressed Hyo. He said his dream was to be Brave Gate champion. Based off what he saw today, Kagetora thought that day may be closer than expected. He was expecting big things from him and asked him to fight his hardest. He also asked the Kyoto fans to have similar high expectations for the Jimmyz in the 5 Unit Survival Race.

Kanda & Susumu both promised to keep the Jimmyz alive.

Mochizuki reminded YAMATO that even though the survival race was on, the unaffiliated were still a threat to him. He should be on his toes whether it is a league match or not.

Takagi derided Kzy for his choice of finish. He was clearly a spineless coward with no will to fight head on. He and his unit have no merit or value to society. They should drop out of the league and voluntarily disband. Whatever. Today was over. Verserk was going to win by any means necessary from here on out. Kzy had no real idea what he was talking about. All he knew was there was a 3 count and he was the one that got it. Along with the others, they would protect Tribe Vanguard and walk away as survivors. Maria agreed, but brought up that she also had something else on her mind that she would reveal soon.

Eita said that Over Generation would prove they were the number one unit in Dragon Gate by finishing at the front of the race. Shimizu said losing today really really sucked, but this was only the first steps taken in this race. Over Generation would be paid back for today. Kotoka said that MaxiMuM was created just 3 short months ago here in Kyoto. They weren’t going to let themselves be demolished so easily.
