*YAMATO fails in his 7th defense, Mochizuki becomes the 26th Champion

CIMA opened the show with a quick personal anecdote. A typhoon was in the area over the weekend. It brought a lot of rain to Tokyo. Dangerous Gate started a few hours early for CIMA because after his usual late night training session he began to walk home but his umbrella was blown inside out. He also brought up twice having to leave this very show in an ambulance. Thankfully, the last two years have been No Ambulance Gate and hopefully that trend continues.

YAMATO & Mochizuki had a confrontation after match two. Mochizuki promised to fight as long as there was even a flicker of fire left in him. He hoped that fans would cheer him until their voices were nearly burned out. YAMATO couldn’t contain his excitement. He felt like a grade school student right before a field trip. He is going to be in a lot of pain in a few hours but he is looking forward to it more than anything. He started to talk about how fighting with Mochizuki was different from everyone else, but it appeared Mochizuki had stopped listening so he got a little more serious. Their fight is one that has no need for barbed wire or other gimmicks. When they fight, it lives up to the name Dangerous Gate.

CIMA escalated the Young Generation/Young MaxiMuM feud. He implored Eita & Yamamura to aim for Doi & Yoshino. CIMA challenged Ben-K & Shimizu to come after the Twin Gate so they can finish their clean sweep of MaxiMuM. When you think of the Twin Gate, there are only 3 letters that come to mind. C-K-1.

Verserk celebrated. T-Hawk said a stale and directionless unit was put out of it’s misery today. This was only the beginning. Verserk were once again the center of Dragon Gate and nothing can stop their rampage. They left the Jimmyz to give some token parting words to whatever fans they had left. They ripped the Jimmyz t-shirt from Kagetora but struggled to actually tear it up.

Susumu apologized for losing. They would abide by the rules and split up. This all started nearly 6 years ago when himself & Kagetora had a match where if they lost they would have to change their names. It was cruel and unusual punishment and they hated it. But the fans were there for them. They were joined by Saito, Horiguchi, & Candy a few months later. Then, two years ago in this very same building under the same circumstances, K-ness betrayed Mad Blankey and joined them. That was the start of their second chapter. Someone as plain as him was able to have so much success and so many great memories over the last 5-6 years because of the fans that supported the Jimmyz. That Jimmy name that he once hated so much. Today he fought with all his might to keep it. He failed. The Jimmyz are finished. But not today. He wants one more chance to see some of the fans from all over the country as a Jimmy one last time. A few weeks. Just to say goodbye. Then they will come back to Tokyo for the October Korakuen Hall show and bring the train to its final stop.

Mochizuki was seconded by the former Team Veteran members. CIMA was the first to congratulate him. While he felt compelled to come out and be in his corner for the match, he honestly didn’t expect him to win. Mochizuki told him that after 20 years, CIMA was able to read what was in his heart without saying a word. He actually wasn’t sure of his chances either. Was he still strong enough to handle someone like YAMATO? Would the result today make him start to consider retirement? He wasn’t sure. But at 47 years and 8 months he was now Dream Gate champion for the third time. He mused about his early days in the Kitao Dojo and being sent out into the world. He brought up that this was the 20th anniversary year for CIMA & Fujii. CIMA told the story about meeting Mocchy 20 years ago in a freezing cold venue in Aomori before a Michinoku Pro Wrestling show. When they arrived for the show Mochizuki was already there, warming up next to a small heater by himself. Mochizuki recalled that he had been there for 2 hours by then. CIMA said that he is still like that. Himself & Gamma are always late in getting to the building but Mochizuki is usually the first one there and is the first one warming up. He’s seen this up close for 20 years. He shouldn’t have expected him to lose today. He should have expected it. He shouldn’t be surprised that at 47 years old, 20 years after meeting him, Mochizuki would once again bring him to tears.
Mochizuki changed the subject. With the Jimmyz disbanded and an old bastard as champion there was probably going to be a lot of turmoil in the coming days. He told CIMA & Fujii that they should celebrate their 20th anniversary while they still had a chance. They decided to team together as a trio. Discussing opponents, they agreed that it would only be fitting that they face off with some opponents from the place where they first met. Mochizuki was tasked with contacting the Michinoku Pro Wrestling office and booking a trio to face them.

Mochizuki closed the show out. At 47 years and 8 months, he is once again champion. He will probably have to fight off challengers that are half his age. He’s not sure how long his stamina will hold out but he is ready to carry Dragon Gate again. He had a planned trip to Europe this weekend with CIMA and a few others. Now he is going as champion. He will proudly go and show the world what the champion of Dragon Gate is made of. He promised to deliver more thrilling and chest pounding excitement.

-Eita (24+01 Crucifix Hold) Yoshino
-Kotoka (30:48 Caldera) Lindaman

Yoshioka appeared to injure his knee during the opener. This created a situation afterwards. As promised last month, Don Fujii went drinking in Golden Gai and came up with new, manly ring names for Yoshioka & Takashima. Yuki Yoshioka is now Yukio Yoshioka. Katsumi Takashima is now Takao Takashima. With these wonderful names they will blossom into great fighters. Yoshioka thanked him for his kindness. However, lately his knee has been bothering him. During the match today he felt it go out. He was probably not going to be able to compete under his new ring name for awhile. He asked Fujii permission to rest. Takashima also thanked him. His new name has the high kanji in it and it makes him feel like he will reach new heights. However, he separated his shoulder last month. He has already had surgery and will probably be out for 6 months. He also asked for permission to rest. Fujii accepted. Injuries are a part of life and health comes first. He praised, but also chastised Yoshioka for gutting out his performance on his knee today. He told him to let it rest and heal properly. His old knee injury still gives him trouble. Fujii Heya would continue on with Hyo & Shun as his disciples. First things first, he told Hyo to shave his head. Hyo was in disbelief. Shun could keep the mask, but otherwise they both were ordered to change their ring gear to match Fujii. Hyo protested. He wasn’t going to shave his head. His ring gear matches his name and if he loses it he loses who he is. Shun wears a green mask. That would look awful with black tights. He has had enough of Fujii Heya. He quit. The four rookies all left, leaving Fujii alone in the ring. He was embarrassed to admit it, but with Yoshioka & Takashima injured and Watanabe & Skywalker rejecting his gracious guidance that Fujii Heya was finished. He thanked for the fans for their fervent support over the last month.

Maria reminded Kagetora that if things go like this at Dangerous Gate, she would be walking out with the Brave Gate title around her waist.
Kagetora admitted that he didn’t know how to deal with someone like Maria. He’s never really enjoyed kissing, much less being kissed against his will like Maria often does. But that goes out the window when the title is on the line. Maria brought up that she won today without having to force a kiss on him. When they meet for the title, Kagetora will see what she is really made of. His labored breathing will drink in her passionate kiss and the result will be a new Brave Gate champion.

Mochizuki told Shimizu that early in the match he thought he threw some good kicks. But the ones he threw when it counted were shit. He should listen well to this advice. He has a lot going for him but as long as he relies on brute force and his finisher the Dream Gate will be out of his reach. He has a long career ahead of him, so he should carefully consider his position and where he wants to be. Mochizuki himself though, he probably doesn’t have a lot of time left. He hasn’t challenged for the Dream Gate in about 2 years. It has been 13 years since his first challenge. He was 34 years old and he said at that time that it may be his last chance. But he has earned another chance here in 2017. He called out YAMATO. It’s been awhile since they have been across the ring from each other. What will YAMATO show him when they meet for the championship? YAMATO admitted that going in, he didn’t really care who won the match. He did get a little excited when Mochizuki won. They have had some spirited fights in the past. But that is the past. YAMATO is firmly entrenched now. His rule is absolute. He is the man that sold 2700 boxes of Almighty Curry yesterday in Iwate. He told Mochizuki to bring his A game in Ota, because he will need it.
Mochizuki conceded he was a strong champion whose reign ranks among the very best in the history books. But he has been wrestling a long time. He has learned that above all else, fans find predictability to be boring. It was time for a shake-up. Someone young or someone old, someone needed to take that title from him and shake things up. He was just the man to cause that shake up when they meet on 9/18 in Ota. His sight in his left eye has been bad ever since a match with Takagi earlier this year. His body hurts in ways it never did before. When he was 34 he thought it was his last chance. At 47, every chance may his last. He was going to make the best of it and give the fans one more look at Masaaki Mochizuki as Dream Gate champion.

Verserk were given 2 losses in the survival race for losing the main event. Lindaman complained about being ganged up on 3-1 in the final stages. This whole thing was bogus! Takagi said they agreed to the stipulations so there was no use in protesting. They had no choice but to win the rest of their matches. On September 18th, Dragon Gate will hold Dangerous Gate. Verserk will be the ones that opens the door and brings the danger in. They will do so in the form of barbed wire. If they are defending the Triangle Gate or if they are defending their own existing, they will do so with barbed wire. The idiots in this god forsaken city will see a new side of hell.

Kotoka blew all that off to remind everyone that he was the one that scored the pin in the main event. He asked Shimizu to team with him and challenge CK-1 for the Twin Gate. CIMA wasn’t so enthused. Such is the life of the Twin Gate champions. They should be ready to defend against all comers. The challenge was accepted. He changed subjects to the Survival Race. Eita picked up a very important win today. After spending the entire month in last place, Over Generation are no longer at the bottom. Eita provoked everyone in sight. CIMA had to apologize for his lackluster microphone work.

MaxiMuM closed out the show promising to survive and return to Korakuen Hall in full force next month.

Over Generation continued their tradition of wearing jerseys of the local baseball team. YAMATO warned his hometown fans to not belive their lies. They are not Rakuten Eagles fans. Just like they weren’t Nippon Ham fans in Sapporo when they wore those jerseys. They were just unscrupulous. He thanked the fans for coming out today and hoped they would come out again on 11/26 when Dragon Gate has its first ever big show in Tohoku – Memorial Gate in Sendai.

Yoshioka followed up a Fujii chokeslam and hip drop with a Frog Splash to pin Ishida. He looked to his boss for approval, but Fujii wasn’t supportive. He shouldn’t be so happy. If he had’t hit his big moves, Yoshioka would have no chance to win. Everything was wrong. Even worse was Skywalker preventing his own teammate Gamma from breaking up the pin. That is unacceptable behaviour. He asked for the finish be changed to a disqualification loss. They need to understand and follow the rules above all else. He said they would receive further scolding backstage while they give him a massage. The result was officially changed to the requested disqualification.

Maria gave Kagetora another passionate kiss, resulting in a total KO. She demanded a Brave Gate title match but Kagetora was totally unresponsive. She asked for Kzy to make a 3 count. If Kagetora couldn’t answer, his honor as a pro wrestler would oblige him to grant the title match. GM Yagi vetoed that idea, but Maria threatened to do to him what she did to Kage. Yagi quickly named her the #1 contender to the Brave Gate.

Yamamura had Lindaman set up for the Skytwister Press but Verserk interfered. Yoshida gave him a trash bin shot to the head, leading directly to the finish.

Mochizuki & Shimizu hit each other by accident on numerous occasions. Mochizuki told him that while their upcoming #1 contender match was important, beating YAMATO today should have been the first priority. He messed up and hit Shimizu once, but Shimizu hit him twice and it cost them the match. Shimizu told him he was acting like whiny bitch. He hit Shimizu first. He should act his age and stop bitching. Mochizuki said he would regret his words when he kicks gets his head caved in during their match.
YAMATO didn’t really care which one won. What was clear to him and to the Osaka fans was that this looked like an argument between a father and his adult son. They were about the same age mentally, though.

T-Hawk buried Over Generation as totally worthless. They lost 3 matches today. They certainly were “over”. As in finished.

Kotoka celebrated. MaxiMuM were the leaders in the survival race and were surely safe from the unit disbands match. He put down the Jimmyz before turning his attention to other matters. CIMA & Dragon Kid and the Twin Gate. He wanted a title match and he didn’t care if his partner was Doi or Yoshino. They took exception to the way he said it. Doi told him to settle down. He won today but that really didn’t make put him on the “It doesn’t matter if it is Doi or Yoshino” level yet. He does have 3 wins in a row, but the survival race and the Twin Gate are totally different things. Besides, DoiYoshi just lost at World so they probably haven’t earned another one. For now they should just take their All You Can Drink All You Can Dance prize for winning before Yoshino gets mad.

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.
