U-T said he has had his confidence boosted greatly during his recent winning streak. He told all the units he was waiting for one of them to come and draft him.

T-Hawk ran down Mondairyu as a weak loser. No one wanted to see him come back. CIMA praised him for lasting 19 minutes. The old Mondairyu would have been finished off in 5 minutes or so by such stuff competition.

Dragon Kid invited U-T to join Over Generation. U-T was starstruck and unprepared to receive an invite so quickly. He was on the verge of accepting when Tribe Vanguard interrupted. They also wanted him to join. U-T was torn. Each Tribe member appealed to him. Maria always liked him even more than Eita when they were together in the Millennials and would love to be close to him again. CIMA said that was more of a negative than a positive. Dragon Kid reminded him of back when he was in 5th grade and he came to see Toryumon in Nagoya. He was inspired to become a wrestler by seeing Dragon Kid that day. He has a chance to see him up close every day now. Hulk tried to appeal to his love of drinking. Maybe after the show they could head out to Sannomiya and have a few. U-T was out for almost a year after surgery. Hulk has also missed long periods of time after surgery. They have things in common, and Hulk has a great interest in seeing how U-T rebounds from his injuries. YAMATO also was interested in him. He wasn’t big or tall, but he has a lot of potential. Tribe Vanguard will ensure he fulfills it. U-T proposed the two teams fight for him. They were appalled at his nerve, but eventually agreed to a U-T contra U-T match at the next Sambo Hall show. He will join the winning unit.

CIMA turned his attention to Eita and the identity of his opponent at Gate of Destiny. It will be Ricochet. Ricochet will return to Dragon Gate for a limited engagement and his first target is Eita.

Susumu & Mochizuki had a confrontation after the opener. You never know what is going to happen in Kyoto. What happened today is Susumu pulled off the upset and pinned the champ. In Osaka on November 3rd, he will do it again. Mochizuki told him that the real fight was still to come. He went down today, but he will be ready for anything Susumu can throw at him in their title match. Susumu replied that he has much more in his arsenal than the Jumbo no Kachi! and Mochizuki is the one that should be practicing.

U-T gave the same speech he gave in Korakuen. He has had no unit since the end of the Millennials. He hasn’t done anything of note and the generation beneath him have already begun to pass him by. He will not give up. He will leave a mark in DG because he is U-T.

Horiguchi and Kagetora had a discussion after their match. It has been a week since the Jimmyz ended. There remains an emptiness inside Horiguchi that he hasn’t been able to fill. The others have all gone their separate ways. Some have taken a dark path. Some are pursuing a championship path. You have to make your own chances if you want to remain a player in Dragon Gate. You have to find your own fulfillment. Today, by showing his courage to the Kyoto faithful, he took the first steps towards that. Kagetora knew exactly what he meant. They spent 6 years together and he still understands him. Kagetora challenged him to come for the Brave Gate. They agreed to give their all. Man to Man, former Jimmy vs. former Jimmy at Gate of Destiny on November 3rd.

After scoring another win over Dragon Kid, Big Ben once again demanded a Twin Gate title match with CK-1. Ben told CIMA that aside from DoiYoshi, all of their previous challengers were lukewarm at best. Big Ben were on fire and were going to take the titles. DK accepted and the match was set for Osaka.
Again, Eita levied some criticism towards DK. He lost again today, like he lost in Korakuen. If he keeps up this pace does he really expect to be able to keep the Twin Gate?!? CIMA told him he must have taken a blow to the head to make him talk so much. In Korakuen, Eita was the one teaming with DK so he should share some of the blame. Today, Gamma does. That is what it means to be a team. CK-1 know what it means to be a team, that is why they are the champions.

Tribe Vanguard challenged Verserk to a Triangle Gate title match but were interrupted by Doi & Yoshino. Doi pinned Lindaman earlier in the evening. He is on the champion team so that means they deserve a title shot. Takagi had no problems with their logic but pointed out there were only two of them. Kotoka came out, announcing he was back in action. Takagi had no problem with accepting their challenge if this was the best they could do. YAMATO had issues with someone returning from an injury and just being given a championship opportunity. Doi looked at is as more of a celebration of his return. Lindaman had no issues with Tribe Vanguard because they sucked and weren’t a threat to them. However, he also took exception with that midget loser Kotoka. It would be irresponsible to set up such an important match with him because there is a high chance he will find a way to injure himself again. The title match ended up being made a three way. Lindaman said that someone should call the ambulance ahead of time so they can be on alert.

Tribe Vanguard began to close out the show but Over Generation interrupted. CIMA apologized for the interruption but he had an important announcement to make that really could only happen in this spot. YAMATO conceded and left them to it.

CIMA had a quiz. No, a question. No, he had a problem. A Problem Dragon. He called out Mondairyu and passed the microphone to him. He really didn’t think there was any hope for his neck hernia, but Over Generation fought so hard to save a place for him to return to. To repay that debt and for all the fans that have been waiting patiently for him, he will be returning to the ring on 9/29 in Kobe.

CIMA noted that neck injuries have become a hurdle for Over Generation members. Except for Eita. Eita, who has been doing a lot of talking and complaining as of late while doing his fair share of losing. On November 3rd in Osaka, Eita will be faced with a hurdle in the form of a singles match. He isn’t telling him his opponent, but it is someone that everyone knows. A wrestler that CIMA was enamored with at first sight.

Mondairyu closed the show by saying that the best of 2017 was left to come for himself & Over Generation.

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.

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.
