MaxiMuM won the draw for the man advantage in the main event. Kotoka promised that MaxiMuM would take full advantage and he would be the one to pick up the pin on Horiguchi. Horiguchi asked him if he was really prepared to captain a unit and carry them to victory. He has had to carry the Jimmyz to victory many times over the last 6 years. Today wouldn’t be any different.

Mochizuki asked Yoshioka how losing felt. It sucks, doesn’t it? Yoshioka admitted it did indeed suck. Perhaps today was all Don Fujiis’ fault, but a loss is a loss. He told Shun Skywalker to also listen carefully at ringside. They are contemporaries of Ben-K. He has joined a unit, become a champion, and is frequently in important matches. They are the total opposite. This is Kobe World season. This is the season to make an impact. He urged them to do whatever they had to do.

Lindaman was reminded of the time he was actually with this ugly pig and wanted to be in the same unit as her. But because of the stupid fans he was rejected. Because of the stupid fans….he was now a champion. Today he wanted to say thank you to all these idiots that made his life so miserable. He would have been stuck in Tribe Vanguard having to carry around this ugly piece of baggage. Maria sprung back to life and ended up laying Lindaman out.

Takagi mocked YAMATO for losing to him right before his big title match. Perhaps he is so scared of and focused on T-Hawk that he has forgotten that he has other enemies that will be waiting to strike when he lets his guard down. What kind of champion is he? T-Hawk can’t win the title soon enough. T-Hawk called him a weakling. He didn’t even feel the need to pick up the win himself today. He can pin YAMATO or Hulk any time he wants. YAMATO was self deprecating. It sure seems like he has been out here every month making these awkward speeches after losing. One awkward speech he won’t be making is at Kobe World, because he was going to win. T-Hawk found the notion laughable. It wasn’t just YAMATO & Hulk. Everyone in Dragon Gate was on his list. YAMATO promised to return to Korakuen Hall as champion and hoped the fans would enjoy the main event.

He had been mocked and put down, but today Kotoka captained MaxiMuM to victory. He didn’t know or care how long the Jimmyz have been together. All that matters was that MaxiMuM were the best unit today. Tribe Vanguard came out. Kzy gave MaxiMuM credit for their current run of momentum, but he disagreed that they were the best. Tribe has the Dream Gate champion, the #1 contender to the Brave Gate, and the next Triangle Gate champions. They were the best. Verserk interrupted. Who cares if Tribe Vanguard has the Dream Gate champion when he is a champion who gets pinned all the time? Lindaman said that the Triangle Gate titles prove that they are the strongest unit. MaxiMuM and the Jimmyz had no title belts. He beat Maria himself today, and YAMATO & Hulk went down to Takagi & T-Hawk. Verserk was clearly the better unit. This brought Over Generation to the ring. Verserk sure liked to brag about how much they won today. If you check the results, you will see CK-1 beat Yoshida & Punch today. They are also still Twin Gate champions and that is an important item in the unit battlefield. Doi reminded him that they were only champions for the time being. They will have to defend those titles against DoiYoshi at World. Eita was tired of talking and was ready to settle things. Things got increasingly heated. Takagi suggested that maybe it was time for one of the units to go away entirely.

Mochizuki & Fujii appeared at this point. Maybe this has nothing to do with him. He was an independent, after all. He did have a proposal, though. World is in a few weeks, but once that is over it will be time for the August series. A month and a half after that will be Dangerous Gate in Ota. His proposal was, for the duration of that time span they hold a league of some sort. At the end of that league, the lowest ranked unit would be forced to disband. Things like match composition and other details could be decided later. Kotoka protested. This was unit warfare and Mochizuki had no right to be involved. Mochizuki figured Kotoka was just too afraid. After all, his stablemate Big R Shimizu was personally responsible for the demise of two units within a 6 month time frame. GM Yagi came out and made it official. The details would be announced later, but the Unit Surival League was on. Each unit promised they would win, leaving MaxiMuM to close out the show.

Doi was taken aback by what Mochizuki had said earlier. Previously, he didn’t care about anything related to Big R Shimizu, so this was his first time hearing about his reputation as a unit killer. Was he really directly responsible for the demise of two units? Shimizu admitted it was true. Due to his big mouth, Dia Hearts and Monster Express were forced into and lost unit disbands matches. Having MaxiMuM end after like two months was just not an acceptable option. Yoshino brought up that he was in Monster Express when it happened. He wondered if getting involved in this league was really a good idea with Shimizu around….
Doi told him to stop thinking negatively. They weren’t going to lose! He left the closing of the show to Kotoka, since lost in all this was the fact that he won in the main event. This in fact was probably the first time he has won in such an important match. Kotoka admitted he was incredibly nervous all day, especially during the drawing at the start of the show. His promo got no reaction so that didn’t help things. Doi told him that it was a pretty embarrassing promo and he himself was embarrassed for him. But it all worked out in the end and the reaction to his win was as big as he has ever heard. Kotoka said he has been through hell over the last year. He got injured, kicked out of Verserk, injured again. He finally has a place and he has no intention of losing it. Young MaxiMuM weren’t going to be carried through this league by Doi & Yoshino. They would be the ones doing the heavy lifting and save them from extinction.

*MaxiMuM fail in their 2nd Defense, Verserk become the 60th Champion Team

Kzy reminded the world that Tribe Vanguard was still around, and they were determined to make their presence felt in the current unit battlefield. Kagetora agreed. With his pinfall win over Saito today, Kzy was more than qualified for a Brave Gate title match. Kzy reminded him that back in Hakata, Kagetora had asked him to relay a challenge to Flamita. Flamita was now standing in front of him. He can challenge him directly now. Kagetora remembered that this was, in fact, how it went. He challenged Flamita for a Brave Gate title match at Kobe World. Flamita accepted.

Mochizuki was happy to be on the receiving end of kicks from Ishida again. He had been out for 5 months, and seems well rested. Both Don Fujii & himself are 47 years old. To them, 5 months is over in the blink of an eye. It is no time at all. If Ishida took 20 years off he still wouldn’t be as old as them. Ishida has a lot of time left in his career. But there will still be a lot of times he and the other youngsters will be across the ring from Masaaki Mochizuki & Mr. Don Fujii.

Young MaxiMuM came out after the 3rd match and attacked. Kotoka mocked the Jimmyz for losing and for being caught off guard by the attack. They have permanent targets on their back and they should be ready to fight at all times. Eita was irritated. Yamamura scored the pin, Over Generation beat the Jimmyz. MaxiMuM had no reason to be here. Kanda was beyond irritated. These kids talk a lot of shit for guys who only win sometimes. Verserk came out at this point and argued with MaxiMuM over the main event. Shimizu said there was only one possible result. A MaxiMuM win with Big! R! Shimizu! getting the 3 count.

YAMATO & T-Hawk had a verbal confrontation in advance of their title match. YAMATO was impressed that T-Hawk still had gas in the tank after King of Gate. T-Hawk promised they would find out who the real number 1 was. It would be him.

Eita interfered in the semifinal, but it backfired and an errant superkick allowed Kotoka to pin CIMA.

The Jimmyz hit the ring after the main event. They challenged the new Triangle Gate champions to a title match. Over Generation followed. Gamma said he already had a reservation in his name for the next title match. Kotoka then demanded MaxiMuM get a rematch. He pinned CIMA today, so he felt he should be in the match. It would be the Young MaxiMuM trio challenging. Tribe Vanguard followed. They didn’t want to be left out of this.
Takagi was annoyed that the Verserk win was so quickly forgotten, but was amused by all the challenges. They would defend the titles at Kobe World, but a 5 way would be annoying to pull off. He proposed the four potential challenger teams have a one night tournament earlier in the show. The winning team would then go on to face Verserk in a title match. Horiguchi wasn’t too into the idea. 3 matches in one night is very inconvenient. Takagi said that as the champions, they get to make the rules. The challenger teams all has gripes, but in the end it was accepted. GM Yagi was pleased with the idea but had one concern. A one night tournament may extend the length of the show to an unreasonable length. He announced that the tournament matches would be competed under two count rules. With this settled, Verserk tried to celebrate their title win but when the fans didn’t react positively they left.

Doi & Yoshino then agreed there was only one piece of business left for today. They called out CK-1. It was pretty clear why they called them out. DK disagreed. He had no idea. They should just come out and say why. The fans knew why. Yoshino came out and said it. DoiYoshi wanted a Twin Gate title match and they wanted it at Kobe World. After talking for a long time and saying little, CIMA accepted the challenge.

MaxiMuM closed out the show with some propaganda for their various upcoming homecoming shows in the Kansai area.

YAMATO was going to pay him back for that with the beating he would receive tonight!

Hulk announced that Flamita would be returning to Japan next week. He told fans to look forward to what Tribe Vanguard will be able to do with him around.

Susumu attacked Kotoka after their match. He gave him a Yokosuka Cutter and Saito counted 3. Kotoka wasn’t phased by it. He beat Susumu & Big was about to beat Horiguchi. This might be a hometown show for that comedy loser Gamma, but this was Young MaxiMuMs’ time.

Horiguchi thanked the fans for helping him call on some divine intervention. These young kids have power and stamina. The Jimmyz are all over 35. They don’t have much power and stamina. They do have smarts and experience. Because of that, they can’t be beaten.

Gamma called out Young MaxiMuM after the main event. Who were they calling a comedy wrestler? Maybe they need to see the scarier side of Gamma to be reminded exactly who he was. He challenged for the Triangle Gate on behalf of Over Generation. Lindaman noted that Verserk already had the next title shot. Gamma had no idea. He was off yesterday and he doesn’t pay attention to what Lindaman does on his off days. Well. If it was already official announced, then he wanted to reserve the the next show. Lindaman did a lot of trash talking about the Old Comedy Generation or whatever he said. Lindaman said no such reservation system existed! Gamma was using his hometown advantage to create such a system. Along with Yamamura & Ishida, they would get whoever wins on 7/1. Lindaman thought it was bullshit, but wanted to prove they were better than Over Generation. Fine, they have their reservation. Shimizu shouted that MaxiMuM were the champion team. After they run over Verserk, they would be more than happy to crush Over Generation.

Young MaxiMuM attacked after the opener. Kotoka lamented the match quality, and mocked Eita for losing to the biggest jobber in the company after all the trash he talked in Hakata. Eita told him to mind his business. This match had nothing to do with them. Horiguchi was annoyed at having one of his rare wins ruined like this. Young MaxiMuM, Young Generation, whoever. The middle aged Jimmyz would make them pay for taking them lightly.

Kagetora continued his new strange habit of challenging people to Brave Gate title matches. This time it was Ishida. Even though he just came back from an injury and clearly wasn’t back up to speed, maybe a title match was what he needed to get back on track….

T-Hawk called out YAMATO. He demanded they set a time and place for their match. The match that would decide who was better: the king or the champion. There was only one place suitable. The main event of Kobe World on 7/23.

Not to Ben lost in the shuffle, Kzy put MaxiMuM and the other unit so on notice. If any of them wanted a target, they were welcome to try Tribe Vanguard.

Verserk ran down MaxiMuM for their lack of results. What a joke of a group these guys are! Especially that pig and gorilla from the so-called Young MaxiMuM. They weren’t fit to be champions. Verserk wanted their titles. Doi agreed. Both sides didn’t want to wait until World so the match was set for 7/1 in Osaka.

7. King of Gate 2017 Finals: T-Hawk (23:50 Night Ride) Naruki Doi

Young MaxiMuM came out after the opener. This time their attention was towards Yamamura & Ishida. Losing to a joke like Horiguchi? Pathetic. The Jimmyz & Over Generation were no match for Young MaxiMuM. Eita was amused. Young MaxiMuM? What exactly did they think they were capable of without Doi or Yoshino? They were going to find out in the semifinal tonight just how much of a match Over Generation is. Horiguchi appreciated their youthful enthusiasm, but he was the winner of this match. Yamamura should consider this payback for yesterday. As for Ben-K, he was going to have to answer to a very angry Susumu later today.

Kagetora took out Punch in short order. Verserk weren’t safe from the Jimmyz warpath. PT should be ashamed of himself for even showing up in this shape. It’s an embarrassment to the company. He was somehow still an eligible weight for the Brave Gate. So was his stablemate El Lindaman. He challenged both of them to come for his title. Kzy showed up and reminded Kagetora that he challenged Flamita yesterday. Kagetora was furious with Kzy. He said yesterday he would get in touch with Flamita, yet Flamita isn’t here today. What a liar! While Flamita was due back soon, it takes more time than 12 hours to get here. Kagetora became even more mad at him, and challenged HIM to come after the Brave Gate. There was clearly no reasoning with him in his current state, so Kzy just once more agreed to relay the message to Flamita when he arrives.

Shimizu & Kotoka interfered in the Susumu vs. Ben-K match. The other Jimmyz also got involved to cause a no contest. Susumu just had one thing to say to them. He was usually very professional, but they have pushed him past his breaking point.

Kzy celebrated his win. There was a lot of hot fighting going on right now between the other units. It may be hot, but Tribe Vanguard is the spiciest. Maybe it was time to blend some of that spice into the mix.

OG and MaxiMuM got into it again after their match. Eita told Kotoka he saw the power of a King of Gate semifinalist today. Who from Young MaxiMuM even did anything in the tournament? Shimizu? Kotoka and Yoshino weren’t in because of their injuries that they were now back from. Is Over Generation really proud of having some third rate comedy wrestler like Gamma represent them in such an important tournament? Gamma hit him in the head with the Singapore Cane. Who was he calling a comedy wrestler? It isn’t necessarily a bad thing, anyway. At least fans are entertained whenever Gamma is around. You can’t say that about Kotoka. As for King of Gate, he has won the whole damn thing in the past. The injury excuse? Gamma was injured on the exact same day as Kotoka and Yoshino but he made it into the tournament. Maybe he is just a third rate indy wrestler, but he isn’t dead weight like Kotoka.

T-Hawk wasted no time in calling out YAMATO. He also wasted no time in making his intentions clear. He won King of Gate. He is number one. He wanted a Dream Gate title match. YAMATO congratulated him on his win. However, while he won the tournament he didn’t beat YAMATO in doing so. Why should he get a title shot? T-Hawk persisted. Didn’t YAMATO want a final showdown between them to decide who is the real number one? YAMATO was fine being number two. T-Hawk was flustered and told YAMATO to just leave if he wasn’t going to be serious. YAMATO gave him the go2hospital 1. That was his real answer. Yes. T-Hawk is now the #1 contender. YAMATO was always ready and willing to defend his title against one of the new generation. Once again, congratulations on winning the tournament. Well fought. He will soon come to find that the Dream Gate title is something totally different. He still had plans for Dragon Gate and he can only accomplish them as champion. He wasn’t planning on handing the title over to someone who had no plans. They can decide the future like men. They can fight for it. T-Hawk promised to follow up this win today by becoming the top champion.

YAMATO somehow ended up closing out the show. He thanked the Hakata fans for coming out this weekend. He once again stated that King of Gate was tough, but the Dream Gate is on a different level. He promoted the 11/26 big show in Sendai. T-Hawk is going to be a tough opponent, but he wasn’t going to lose the title to him. When they return to Hakata in August, he would still be champion.

Pairings for the King of Gate semi-finals were drawn at the top of the show. T-Hawk vs. Eita & Doi vs. Takagi were the match-ups. Eita just considered it another step on the way to the finals. T-Hawk told his old Millennials partner that they know each other really well. Eita thinks he does, at least. Not anymore. He is not the same T-Hawk. Takagi was happy to face off with Doi in Hakata. Doi has embarrassed him here before. Today it was his turn. He was going to just do what he does best. With Doi broken and out of the way, they would have an all Verserk final and prove once and for all they were the strongest unit. Doi played to the fans. Everyone knew he was better than Takagi. The fans would be totally behind him on his way to victory.

Kanda put Kotoka, Ben-K, & Shimizu on notice. They were no match for the experience the Jimmyz have.

Kagetora asked for some time after his win. He was Brave Gate champion. But the tournament he won it in was missing someone. Flamita didn’t participate. He didn’t feel as though he could really consider himself champion until he beats him. He asked Kzy to get in touch with him in Mexico and tell him he had a title shot waiting. Kzy was irritated at having to play messenger, but Flamita would be back soon. He would pass the message along.

Lindaman warned MaxiMuM that while they were distracted by the Jimmyz, Verserk were going to take their Triangle Gate titles.

Verserk and MaxiMuM got involved after the main event, leading to a huge brawl. Kotoka mocked Horiguchi for losing to Yamamura today. Losing to a green boy, doesn’t he feel degraded? Horiguchi reminded him that he got squashed by Kanda earlier. Yamamura wondered why they were out here at all. Kotoka should keep his name out of his mouth.
T-Hawk faced off with Doi. Was he ready for the finals? Was he ready to lose? Doi has been ready for the finals since the thing started. He is always ready. It really doesn’t matter who his opponent ended up being. It just happens to be T-Hawk. The last thing in his way. He wanted to win King of Gate and get back on top of Dragon Gate. Lindaman proclaimed T-Hawk as the winner of King of Gate, and Verserk as the strongest unit. Yoshino said that while the Jimmyz were the first target for MaxiMuM, they were aware of OG & Verserk. The punk kids need to fall back. By getting involved with MaxiMuM they were just putting targets on their own backs. Horiguchi admitted MaxiMuM & Over Generation had youth on their side. But youth is no match for experience. The Jimmyz are all over 35. They have been fighting together as a unit for 6 years. Wrestling isn’t just about youth and power. The Jimmyz will show that to all of them. CIMA had a lot to say, but most of it was said already. Just watching today, it was clear that the next generation was catching up with his. Even within his own unit. Yamamura was on the rise. Eita made the King of Gate semifinals. Ishida fought back from a serious injury. But CK-1 were still Twin Gate champions. Gamma was going to be Gamma doing Gamma things. Those are things no one else can do. This combination of youth and experience would leave Over Generation as the winners of any unit warfare.

Since CIMA would win C Block if he won today, Yoshida offered to lay down for him for 1,000,000 yen. CIMA considered the offer, and wondered if he had enough in his account to initiate the bank transfer. Yoshida said that the price was without tax. CIMA noted the slump Yoshida was on. Takashi Yoshida. His name was more boring than the Jimmyz names. The match started with no bribe paid. Yoshida aimed for a countout, and with ample help from Verserk he managed to pull it off. CIMA was eliminated from C Block, giving Naruki Doi the spot in the final four.

Takagi tried to persuade Lindaman to lay down for him. This was his last match, and if he wins he will have a high chance of reaching the final four. Lindaman was already eliminated. He should do the right thing for his leader. Lindaman complied, and laid down for him. Takagi covered, but was quickly rolled up in a small package for a surprising near fall.

Punch & Lindaman attacked Doi after his match. MaxiMuM were so focused on the Jimmyz that they have lost sight of the fact that as Triangle Gate champions, everyone was coming for their heads. Doi wasn’t really sure what this was all about. If Verserk wanted a title match they could have one, but not while King of Gate was going on. He was on top of Block C now. His fate would be decided by the result of CIMA vs. Yoshida next week in Kyushu. He isn’t optimistic, given the current state of Yoshida. But if he can do him that favor and beat CIMA, Doi advances to the final four.

Kotoka mocked the Jimmyz. Once again, they lost to the so-called weakest link. Horiguchi had nothing to say. He lost again and to make it worse he lost to his own hold. The Jimmyz were going to win this feud, and put an end to things once and for all.

Guests who attended this show were also treated to dinner, complete with waiter service from the Jimmyz & Over Generation. There was a bridal show in conjunction with a local bridal service where BxB Hulk & Masato Yoshino appeared in tuxedos with models. YAMATO was paired with Yosuke Santa Maria, who was wearing a stunning green wedding gown. She decided she wanted to get married then and there to one of the men involved in the bridal show. It was decided that during the wrestling portion of the entertainment, whichever one she could score a kiss on would have to propose to her.

Maria scored the kiss on YAMATO. Even though she lost the match, it was OK because she was going to get married! YAMATO made a run for it, but was stopped. Maria actually called out her real parents for the wedding. YAMATO resigned himself to his fate, and asked Mr. Watanabe for his daughters’ hand in marriage. They asked him to take care of their precious daughter. YAMATO then asked Maria to marry him. Maria gave him an even deeper kiss to signal her acceptance. YAMATO promised to work hard and provide for her. They were going to have a lot of kids, and maybe one of them would grow up to join Dragon Gate. They left to the Bridal March to begin their life together as man and wife.

Kotoka was gleeful in pointing out The Jimmyz just lost to who they claimed was the biggest pathetic weakling bottom feeding jobber. This proved that lazy and complacent old timers like the Jimmyz had no place left in Dragon Gate. Ben-K said in all his long hours training in the dojo, he has never seen a Jimmyz member there. Because of them, his contemporaries are blocked from the main cards. He will help them by taking the Jimmyz out entirely. Kanda was enraged by Ben-Ks sudden ability to say more than just his name and they started to get into it. Horiguchi said Ben-K sure can talk a big game. They might be strong, but they are wrong about the Jimmyz being lazy. They have been together for 6 years and have done nothing but fight to stay alive for those 6 years. Kotoka has spent most of his career getting injured and coming back, getting injured and coming back, getting injured and coming back, etc. He is in fact the weakest wrestler in Dragon Gate. Kotoka admitted that he has been injured a lot recently, but with how often Horiguchi loses, that makes him the weakest. After more arguing, the two sides agreed to settle things in all out war. Yoshino said that even though they only had 5 members to the Jimmyz 6, they would gladly fight under those terms. DoiYoshi was more than enough to make up the difference. Saito was livid over losing to that jobber Kotoka. He disagreed that MaxiMuM would have a chance under 6 on 5 rules with their 3 greenhorns. It would be more like 6 on 2. He said Kagetora would bow out, and it would be 5 on 5. Yoshino agreed, and proposed having the match under Naniwa Elimination Rules. GM Yagi set the match for the July Korakuen, but was adding one stipulation of his own. To decide who was the weakest link between Kotoka & Horiguchi, he was naming them as captains and adding Captains’ Fall rules to the match.

Susumu celebrated. He was still alive in King of Gate and was planning on going on to win the whole thing. As for MaxiMuM. They are all talk. They would see what the Jimmyz are made of.

As a time limit draw loomed, Takagi created a referee distraction that let him use a low blow to pin Hulk. As always, a complete and total triumph for Shingo Takgi. He paused for applause but received the usual boos. In a match like this, you do what you have to do to win. He did, and he won. Main events and live streams mean nothing to him. He just wanted to once again prove he was superior to Hulk. YAMATO was disgusted at him being so proud of a dirty win. Takagi was quick to point out that he was a paper champion that got squashed by Big R Shimizu earlier. YAMATO & BxB Hulk. The top 2 of Tribe Vanguard. Two losers. In fact, Tribe lost all their matches today. If this was all they were capable of, they should just go ahead and disband now. YAMATO pointed out that no one was buying any Verzerk merchandise. They were essentially Shingo Takagi and A, B, C. They had no room to talk about accomplishments as a unit. T-Hawk took great exception. He pointed out that aside from YAMATO, no one in Tribe Vanguard has accomplished a damn thing. If anything, the two units were even. YAMATO said that as long as he is Dream Gate champion, they would be anything but even. T-Hawk brought up him getting destroyed by Shimizu but YAMATO brought up that T-Hawk also lost today. Hulk asked Takagi if he really was satisfied with taking shortcuts and fighting like a coward. After more arguing and fighting, GM Yagi intervened. He set up a YAMATO & Hulk vs. Takagi & T-Hawk tag match for the July Korakuen. Takagi was pleased with that idea. Even though they now looking to next month, he demanded no one forget this month and the Shingo Takagi main event victory. Another main event. He has been in how many in a row now? Not YAMATO, not Doi or Yoshino. He was the main event. He was going to win King of Gate and get Dragon Gate back onto his path.

Hulk closed out the show reminding everyone how much he hates Shingo Takagi.
