CIMA & Over Generation opened the show with a monologue. He talked about being in Tokyo a lot in recent weeks and he doesn’t get lost in Shinjuku Station that much anymore. He talked about Yamamura’s injury. His neck is sore, but otherwise he is fine. He’s young and full of enthusiasm so he will be back in action soon. CIMA noted that Mondai Ryu has a hernia in his neck. Earlier this year, Ishida had a hernia in his neck. Of course CIMA himself has a history of neck problems. Seems that in addition the Old Generation & Young Generation there is one more team inside Over Generation. Generation Necks. He said his 20th anniversary match tonight will be unlike most things you see in DG these days. It will have a throwback feel, but you can’t turn back the clock. It will be a showcase of what they are like now, not how they were back then. As for Shachihoko Boy…This match could be the one where he finally gets to join OG. The best way to become one of them would be to suffer an awful neck injury today and join Generation Necks.
Eita began his usual awkward promo. This time he was unusually focused on ticket sales so CIMA rushed him along to the Gong Kids section. 9 year old Mishka was a huge Horiguchi fan and recently had a birthday so CIMA ran a few laps around the hall until he found Horiguchi. The man himself didn’t come out, but he was able to procure a pair of his trademark entrance sunglasses as a birthday gift for her.

U-T gave a fiery speech after his win. Since the Millennials split up, he hasn’t done much. No unit, no big wins. Some of his younger peers have already far surpassed him. He won’t last much longer in Dragon Gate if he continues at the level he has been at. But he isn’t giving up. If there was no place for him to belong, he would make one for himself. Expect big things from him, because he is U-T.

After pinning Twin Gate champion Dragon Kid, Shimizu felt he & Ben deserved a Twin Gate title match. DK ignored the challenge and instead had some harsh words for Ben-K. Today he looked cautious and tentative. Not his usual self, that is for sure. Was he rattled seeing Yamamura get hurt? Sure. Seeing something like that happen right in front of you is a terrifying thing. As wrestlers they need to be ready for anything every time they step in the ring. Ben is one of the wrestlers that is expected to carry the company into the future. He needs to get his act together.
Strangely, Eita said that the one who needed to get his act together was Dragon Kid himself. He was talking pretty big for someone who just got beaten. He’s Twin Gate champion but he is losing to the likes of Ben-K? They had an awkward argument where Kid asked him to use honorifics when talking to him. He apologized, but said Ben-K was so off today that he had to call him out for it. They settled things by the end. Eita said not to take your eyes off of him or Over Generation.

TAKA said that he has suffered at the hands of CIMA quite a bit over the last 20 years. He’s had his passport burned, his hair cut, his insurance card stolen. He had nothing but words of congratulations for him & Fujii for their anniversary and Mochizuki for his recent title win.

Shinzaki also congratulated them. He noted that he was in a DG ring tonight and failed to read the room properly. He shouldn’t have tried to win. Sorry!

Sasuke thanked them for coming to help out Michinoku Pro 20 years ago by joining him in SASUKE Gumi.

Mochizuki talked about that first tour of Michinoku Pro where they were all together. Every single night the semi-main was Shinzaki vs. Fujii or Mochizuki. They lost every single night, in the exact way Fujii lost tonight. 1997 or 2017, the result and the finisher remain the same.

Fujii thanked everyone in the ring and all of the fans. He reminisced about coming to Michinoku Pro as a member of Crazy Max. As for Shinzaki; it was just as Mochizuki said. Every single day for nearly 2 years he lost to that damn Gokuraku Gatame. That would change when the time comes for his 25th anniversary. He is challenging Shinzaki to a singles match for that day!

CIMA said it has been a long and winding road for the last 20 years. Mexico, Michinoku, Toryumon, and now Dragon Gate. He has a lot of little scars and he has had some big injuries. To be standing here still able to do this, he owes a lot of it to the fans. Thank you. He asked Shinzaki to please come back and see them again, especially as the young generation begins to take over. He went over his various wars with TAKA. Particularly, that time he burned his passport. TAKA was competing in America for a big organization at the time, but had come back to Japan for a short trip. CIMA figured the worst thing he could do to him would be to burn his passport so he couldn’t leave the country again. Honestly, he didn’t think it would burn so easily but it sure did burn up pretty fast. Who knew they would all end up where they did? Who knows where in the world they will find themselves in next? 25th and 30th anniversaries, he hopes he can cross paths with these 3 again. He thanked them for giving him the honor of facing them today.
He wanted to close things out with a bit of nostalgia. 20 years ago he was a part of a group called Crazy Max and during that time he had a particular way to close out shows and long speeches. He has long since changed it to “I’m CIMA” but maybe today they could bring it back. He explained the Crazy Fucking pose. He would have all the fans stand up and make a certain gesture while he shouted Crazy Fucking Fucking Fuuuu–AAHH! Those types of things were in style back then, you see. Just thinking about it now is really really embarrassing! He asked the fans to stand up and join. Instead of finishing with a AHHHH he finished with a Thank You.

Kanda betrayed Susumu during the closing stretch of the main event, allowing T-Hawk to pick up the win. He was introduced as the newest member of Verserk – Yasushi Kanda. Kanda ran down the Jimmyz as a useless, trash team. He was happy it was finally over. Takagi welcomed him to the team. He told Susumu they he never had any intention of letting him join Verserk. The Jimmyz were worthless and they are finished. It was time for all of them to go away forever. Verserk continued to attack Susumu until Eita & Dragon Kid made the save. They asked Susumu if he would team up with them to go against Verserk. Susumu was in tears as he yelled at Kanda. Why today? This was the last step of their long journey together. If he wanted to join Verserk that was fine. Why did he have to do it today? Is it because of the two accidents in Hakata? No. This looks like it was the plan all along. He should have “accidentally” hit him harder. He’s unaffiliated now, so he asked Eita & DK to assist him to take out Verserk. 3 on 3.
Takagi said he was awful confident for someone who has done nothing but lose. If he wants another fight he can have it but it won’t 3 on 3, it will be 4 on 4. He told them to find another partner. Saito stepped up but Takagi vetoed it. The Jimmyz were finished and there would be no more teaming between members for important matches. Looks like it would be a 4 on 3 handicap match!
This brought out Mochizuki. He wasn’t an ex-Jimmy so surely there were no objections to him joining in. Takagi said his only objection was to a feeble old man coming out an continually making a fool of himself like this. He was almost 50! Did he forget his cane? No one wants to see the elderly get beat up. Mochizuki assured him that he was not ashamed of anything. The match was set for the November Korakuen. Lindaman proclaimed Verserk to be the strongest unit ever. They were going to squash them next month and send everyone home miserable and sad. He demanded the cameraman photograph them before they left. Mochizuki told Lindaman that he talks to damn much and if he is in the match next month he would be coming for his head. Mochizuki left the Jimmyz to close out the show, but Susumu stopped him. He had one more thing to ask.

The Jimmyz have come to an end and he is now independent. Starting tomorrow he would once again be Susumu Yokosuka. Susumu Yokosuka wanted a Dream Gate title shot. Mochizuki was pleased that the day has finally come. He is a 3 time champion and Susumu is a 2 time champion but they have never gone 1 on 1 for the title. Masaaki Mochizuki vs. Susumu Yokosuka, for the Dream Gate 1 time for maybe the last time. He accepted. In Ota, Mochizuki pulled off the unthinkable. He wouldn’t let Susumu do the same at his expense. Susumu said that during his first reign there was some talk that Mochizuki would be his next challenger following his scheduled defense. He ended up getting beat by Don Fujii in that match. Dream Gate champion Susumu Yokosuka will rise again and no matter how many times he gets kicked, he is not going to go down. Mochizuki will go down via his left arm. They agreed to the title match and the Jimmyz were left to close the show.

Susumu said it was fitting. The Jimmyz started with him losing and they ended with him losing. He really hated it when he became Jimmy Susumu. Introducing himself by that name was so embarrassing. Before he knew it, 6 years had passed with the best friends and teammates you could hope for. People were treating him like he was retiring during this little farewell tour. He’s not retiring. He is going to be Dream Gate champion soon, you know. The Jimmyz are over today. He will never forget a single step of the journey they went on together for the last 6 years.

Kagetora said he owes his growth as a wrestler to his time in the Jimmyz. He will continue wrestling and never forget his time time with them.

K-ness said that even though he was only with the Jimmyz for 2 years, his memories with them go back much further than that. They seem to always find themselves coming together and he knows that someday in the future they will all find themselves together again.

Saito was thankful for the farewell series allowing them to go out on their own terms. In the future, he was surely going to be across from the other former Jimmyz. He can’t help but look forward to getting to pulling on Horiguchi’s hair.

Horiguchi asked for one last H-A-Gee-Mee!! chant. He asked the fans to look forward to the Jimmyz restarting as the Dennys next month. Saito said that was a restaurant name and it wasn’t going to happen. If Susumu was going to be Susumu Yokosuka, he was going to be Horio Horiguchi! Saito also vetoed that. He praised Susumu for looking forward. They were all going their separate ways now. He fully expected them to not hold back when it comes time for them to fight. That is what the Jimmyz Spirit is about. Just one thing. Please don’t pull on his hair. Anyway. The time has come. The time for the train to come to it’s final stop.

The show, and the Jimmyz, came to a close with one final Jimmyz Train.

Yamamura was injured after giving Ben-K a springboard missile dropkick. He was motionless so the match was stopped immediately. He regained consciousness and had feeling in his extremities as paramedics arrived. He was taken out in an ambulance. Yoshino said that as pro wrestlers, they accept the risk that things like this can happen every time they step in the ring. He & Doi lead a Yamamura chant.

Susumu accidentally hit Kanda with a box, leading to the end of the match. Takagi accused him of doing it on purpose. If he was looking for a place to belong he could join Verserk. The invitation would expire soon though so he should carefully consider his decision. Thursday was the final Jimmyz match and they would be facing Verserk. It would be as good a place as any to give his answer. He would look better in red than in purple. Yoshida told Mochizuki that being a unit-less Dream Gate champion seemed awfully lonely. Maybe he could also join Verserk. Verserk left.

Susumu said that even after the Jimmyz ended he would be wearing purple. He also assured Kanda that it was indeed an accident. They talked a but about Mochizuki and his Dream Gate title win before ending with the final Jimmyz Train in Hakata.

Shisa appeared for the first time in over a year. He had a major announcement to make. In Dragon Gate, he has to prepare a lot of tacos. He meant his restaurant Dragon Gate. He was also talking about Saito, not Shisa. It would be open for business starting at 7:30 so he hoped to see some of the fans there after the show! Backstage he admitted that he hasn’t done any sort of training at all recently. He is heavier and only is about 30% of his usual ability. He’d like to get back into better shape so he can show up a little more often and he definitely was not retired but for now the man behind the mask has a lot of tacos to make.

Doi & MaxiMuM claimed victory, but they deferred the closing duties to the Jimmyz.

Saito confirmed the situation. The Jimmyz lost the unit disbands match in Ota. They were bound by the rules but have been granted this grace period so they can say goodbye. One last trip around the country so the fans can see them and they can see the fans that supported and cheered for them over the last 6 years.
When they lost, they all cried together in the ring. It was painful. That wasn’t the face they were going to show as they say goodbye. It will be the cheerful and fun Jimmyz that everyone has come to know over the last 6 years.

Horiguchi said he received a phone call from Namie Amuro. She said that if the Jimmyz had to break up she may as well retire. He went on about the content of their call but Saito told him it sounded like a prank. Horiguchi confirmed it was a phone number from Okinawa so it was certainly her.

Kobe was home. There were so many memories here. Just a few months ago, they wrestled 3 times in one day at World. They ended up not winning the Triangle Gate, but to be able to accomplish something like that is a huge milestone. There are no superstars in the Jimmyz. The fact that they were able to accomplish as much as they have in these 6 years was all due to the fans cheering for them. When it started, they couldn’t possibly imagine it would grow into what it did. It was time for the Jimmyz Train to pull into Kobe for the last time. It was sad, but they would do it with smiles on their faces. Soon they would all go down separate paths. The Jimmyz are over but their careers are not. Whatever roads they end up on, they will continue to walk down it with smiles on their faces. The show ended with the finals Jimmyz Train in Kobe.
