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.

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.
