K-ness celebrated the Jimmyz win. They were on a bit of a roll lately. Kagetora finally took the Brave Gate, and they have an upcoming shot at the Triangle Gate. Not wanting to be left out of the fun, K-ness & Kanda challenged CK-1 to a Twin Gate title match. Kid was willing to accept, and figured the absent CIMA would have no issue with it. He warned K-ness that just because other members of his unit were challenging for titles, that made them Twin Gate worthy. K-ness & Kanda were not in the same league as CK-1. If they want a title match they can have it.
The match was set for 04/23 in Hakata Star Lanes.

Hulk showed off his own “Almighty” Frankensteiner. As most know by now, the Dream Gate championship will be up for grabs at Dead or Alive on 5/5. Whoever survives will take the championship. He warned YAMATO that even though they are stablemates, the Dream Gate is a different matter altogether. He is sorry it may have to come at YAMATOs’ expense, but he will be walking away as champion.
YAMATO hinted at hair and masks being on the line again, and promised the rules for this year will be announced soon.

Takagi boasted over another big Verserk win. He ran down the losing team. It is fine that they took the Triangle Gate, because the belts are cursed. There is nothing but misfortune and suffering ahead for whoever holds them. He told Doi that his luck may be particularly bad. He probably shouldn’t walk down any dark alleys any time soon. Takagi then demanded the prize that was set to be presented to the winning team. Verserk posed for photos, then left Doi and his team to close the show.

Doi was embarrassed to admit that since winning the titles last week, they have lost every match they have had. They were still at the starting line. They were going to hold things down until Yoshino comes back.

*Team Doi become the 59th Champion Team

Kagetora never gave up in his dreams of becoming Brave Gate champion, even during his long injury last year. He is looking forward to taking on all of the young generation, but he warned them that now that he is champion he won’t be giving up the title so easily.

Takagi blamed the loss on the referee, but admitted he was happy. The Triangle Gate belts are cursed. Tragedy and injury waits for the team that holds them. Doi better hope that bad luck doesn’t follow him into the cage. He should probably make sure nothing bad happens in his private life either. In any case, the show was over. He demanded all the redneck fans go home.
Doi said there was an entire title belt ceremony left to have, so Verserk are the ones that should go home. The new champions celebrated this win as a new starting point. Memorial Gate is their Memorial Day. Shimizu said together they would create a new era. Ben-K had no plans on slowing down, because he is Ben-K. Doi had someone else he wanted to talk to. He called out Masato Yoshino.
Doi showed him the newly won title belts. Yoshino apologized for keeping him waiting, and congratulated the new champions. They shared some banter. Yoshino revealed that the numbness in his right arm is now gone, and his recovery has reached the strength building phase. He was still going to need some time before he can return to the ring, so he asked Doi to be patient for a little while longer.
Doi promised him he would be waiting for him. Since he was in such a good mood, he decided to have a special autograph session for the fans.

All the participants in the Brave Gate tournament had a chance to address the fans at the top of the show.
Kagetora wants this belt more than anything, and he promised to come out of the tournament as champion.
Draztick Boy said he would do his best.
Yamamura admitted that there probably weren’t that many fans who thought he had a chance. But he was going to show everyone what he was made of. He is fighting Kzy in the first round. Kzy has been on fire all year, but Yamamura has been even hotter. Only one of them would keep their momentum going, and it would be him.
Kzy told Yamamura that while he was on a roll, he couldn’t surpass Kzy just yet. He promised to win and make the Brave Gate scene interesting again.
Tominaga was irritated at having to fight a ladyboy.
Maria wanted to return to her form from last year, and regain the Brave Gate.
Lindaman said everyone was talking about their momentum and enthusiasm. The reality is, that means nothing in a tournament like this. You lose and you are out. He was going to win and bring value back to the Brave Gate.
The Brave Gate belt belongs to Eita. He wasn’t going to let someone like Lindaman walk off with it. He is going to break his arm, leave him laying, and get back what is his.

Dragon Fly is a wrestler from Mexico that is in Japan for a tryout. Due to his arrival, the opener was changed to a 6 man tag team match.

YAMATO celebrated his win. As most in attendance know by now, he defeated Cyber Kong in Osaka to retain his Dream Gate title. He beat Shingo Takagi to win last July at Kobe World. He has also beaten Akira Tozawa, Naruki Doi, & BxB Hulk for a total of 4 defenses. There is a lot of pressure and expectations on the Dream Gate champion. He has accepted them and fought off all his challengers. But what about his challengers? Do they just accept their loss and move on?
Naturally, Takagi was irritated. Sure, he lost at World. He could take the title back any time he wanted.
Hulk wasn’t ready to give up after just one loss.
Kong said he removed his mask and showed who he really was to everyone to prove how ready he was to be champion. He lost on a fluke at the end, and he wanted another shot.
Doi figured since Takagi & Hulk had their own issues to settle, and since Kong was just beaten (and injured in the process) that he should jump the front of the line.
YAMATO revealed his intentions. Right here in Nagoya on May 5th, will be Dead or Alive. Heaven or hell. He was going to risk his Dream Gate title in the annual cage match. Assuming the others were willing to risk something.
Takagi was intrigued, but warned YAMATO that he was the one with the most to lose. Sure. He would do it, and take YAMATOs’ belt and his pride.
Kong wouldn’t make the same mistakes he made in Osaka. He was still unstoppable. He accepted the offer.
Doi accepted. He reminded YAMATO that there were no allies inside the cage. Just enemies that would be coming for his Dream Gate title.
Hulk said that even though they were Tribe Vanguard stablemates, the title is a totally separate matter. He was going to take the title (and beat up that asshole Shingo Takagi in the process).

YAMATO closed the show. The match was set. He would risk his title belt, because that is what pro wrestling and Dragon Gate were about. He vowed to escape the cage as champion.

The show proceeded to the next match while Ichikawa was pleading for a rematch with Fujii. He wouldn’t leave the ring even though the participants made their entrances. Since he was being persistent and they didn’t want to do their entrances again they just made the schedule tag into a six man.

*The winning team will earn the right to recruit away a member of the losing team

Kzy said that even though he failed in his attempts on the Twin Gate, he wasn’t giving up. He is in the best shape of his life and will make create his own opportunities. As the roster grows, getting a favorable & regular position gets increasingly difficult. He can see youngsters who want their chance to shine and create their own opportunities. Wrestlers like Takashima, Yoshioka, & Ben-K. Shouldn’t they be given more chances? Surely the fans want to see what they are capable of. That brings him to the Jimmyz. They’ve been together a long time. Maybe they have gotten a bit too comfortable and complacent in their roles. He used to think that as long as he had a cushy spot, that was enough. Not anymore. Dragon Gate has no place for lazy fighters. He was making it his goal to create excitement and motivation. He invited Takashima and Yoshioka into the ring. Yoshioka said he was hungry for more matches. Takashima doesn’t care who he fights, he just wants to compete more. Kzy could feel their drive. Could the Jimmyz feel it all the way over in their cozy little corner? Saito took offense. The Jimmyz were longtime Triangle Gate champions until last week. Before they could get a rematch with Verserk, Doi & his team jumped in and took the next title match. They were pissed off that they got beaten and had no chance to respond. He was going to respond now. Whoever wins that Triangle Gate match, whether it be Verserk or the challenger team, they would have to face the Jimmyz team of Horiguchi, Susumu, & Saito at the April Korakuen. Kagetora heard the appeal from Yoshioka & Takashima. There were 3 Jimmyz left. If Kzy and his young boys wanted to fight, they could have it. Kanda was looking forward to beating them up. K-ness said he wasn’t finish yet, and he would prove that in their match. GM Yagi made both matches official for next month.

Yamamura and T-Hawk continued brawling after the main event, until they were separated.
By winning the main event, Over Generation earned the right to recruit a member of Verserk. The great Verserk crusher Cyber Kong was himself crushed, so he wasn’t here. That is fine because they didn’t want him anyway. CIMA ran through the options. Shingo Takagi. It was probably time for him to change that stupid hairstyle and get some new ring gear. But having him around wouldn’t be fun. He passed on him. T-Hawk. He is new generation so he would fit that requirement. But, given his relationship with Yamamura it probably wouldn’t be a good idea. “brother” YASSHI. In all these years, CIMA has never teamed together with him. He likes it that way, and he is sure YASSHI feels the same. No one wants to see it, either. Pass. That leaves…..Mondai Ryu. Yes, really. They were selecting Mondai Ryu. He refused. He wasn’t in the match. This had nothing to do with him. He wasn’t going to join their stupid unit. CIMA noted that he was smiling. If this was such a bad thing, why was he so happy looking? Mondai Ryu continued to refuse. CIMA told him he was a reasonable man, so he would give him two choices. He was free to choose whichever path he wanted. Path A is Over Generation. Path B, he can join Fujii Heya at the lowest rank! Mondai Ryu was appalled at the idea of having to team with an old fucker like Don Fujii so he picked Over Generation.
T-Hawk wasn’t sad to hiss him go. Him being gone is probably an overall gain for Verserk. Enjoy your new home. On to more important business. YAMAMURA! If he wants to pick a fight with him, bring it on. T-Hawk lives to punish punks like him. They can settle this and go 1 on 1. Yamamura said he sure talked a lot for someone who just got beaten. T-Hawk, Takagi, Verserk. Bunch of bitchy little girls.
They agreed to a singles match for the April Korakuen.
Next was El Lindaman. He told Yamamura he would get a firsthand lesson in the law of the jungle next month from T-Hawk. He wanted CIMA. CIMA is a horrible role model, if a punk like Yamamura is an example of his leadership. He left OG because of CIMA. Punch left OG. They were flourishing now in Verserk. So, CK-1 are Twin Gate champions. What does that mean for Osaka06? Punch told Gamma to get in the ring and fight. CIMA admitted he maybe did a bad job with those two. He reminded them that it was them who injured Gamma in the first place with their weapon use. He had surgery and was still rehabbing. If they wanted a fight they take their pick from the uncrowned Brave Gate champion Eita or Dragon Kid. Punch continued to insist on Gamma until he got in the ring and struck Punch with his cane. His left arm hasn’t fully healed from the surgery, but his right arm is fine. That is all he would need to take out Punch and Lindaman.
Osaka06 vs. Lindaman & Punch was set for the April Korakuen.

Doi had gotten tired of standing around during this exceedingly long ordeal and was making his way backstage when CIMA called him back to the ring. He lead a Na-Ru-Ki! chant. Doi complained about how long all this was. He had been standing around forever! CIMA thanked him for helping out OG in their time of need. All the members bowed to him. Doi was embarrassed by this. Why did he still need to be here? Mondai Ryu? What?! None of his business anyway. After all, he was waiting for Yoshino! Waiting faithfully for Yoshino! He also has an important title match coming up in Wakayama. Next time the Korakuen Hall fans saw him, he would be Triangle Gate champion. CIMA asked about Kotoka. Doi blew that off. CIMA reminded him that Kotoka was probably watching this. Doi knows he is watching, but…that whole DoiYoshiKotoka thing. Nah. DoiYoshi is DoiYoshi. No room for Kotoka. They exchanged further pleasantries and Doi left.

CIMA called Mondai Ryu into the ring. He wanted to explain why they selected him. CIMA admitted that he has probably kicked the crap out of him more than anyone. He couldn’t help it. It is so much fun. That it was Mondai Ryu is famous for. But there was one incident about a year ago where CIMA kicked the crap out of him that stands out more than any other, right? That incident is why Mondai Ryu was drafted to Over Generation. 8 or 9 years ago, CIMA had a hernia in his neck. He couldn’t move his left side. CIMA then revealed that Mondai Ryu has a similar neck injury. Dragon Gate is a fantasy based on reality. Mondai Ryu’s neck injury is reality. However, he is Mondai Ryu. Having him in the ring was necessary. CIMA asked him to explain his situation.
Last year, he was dropped on his head. He suffered the same injury CIMA had, and he wasn’t able to move. The doctor told him he couldn’t wrestle anymore. He considered surgery and other options that could end his career. He chose to work through it, but the condition hasn’t improved. He gets numbness in his arms and he has lost a lot of strength. He was ready to retire. Then, a few days ago, his sister had a baby. The problem child of the Kimata Family was now an uncle to the first grandchild of the Kimata Family. Whenever he looks at the newborn, it gives him the resolve to return to the ring. Maybe, somewhere, there was someone who looks forward to his matches. Even if there is only that one fan, for their sake he won’t give up. It may take awhile, so don’t forget Mondai Ryu while his neck heals and he prepares for his comeback.
CIMA told him that his niece and the Mondai Ryu fans around the world would be waiting for his comeback. When he does, Over Generation will also be waiting for him. If he needs help or advice, any of them will be there to help. It will be hard. If he needs to start with one of those pink dumbbells they sell for women then so be it. But for the sake of his niece and making her into a Mondai Ryu fan he can do it. He asked him to give the closing speech.
Mondai Ryu was taken aback. He has never done this and has no idea how to do it. He has one thing to see those in attendance, and those watching live around the world. He vowed to recover from this setback and return to the ring. He was a shitty wrestler, but he was an unforgettable wrestler. He will see everyone soon. Jaaaaaaaaaaaaa naaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
