Antias were on the same page in helping Kanda take down Punch. Takagi told Punch that his fun was over. The fans can boo Antias all they want. They deliver results. That is all that matters. Kanda would bring the Brave Gate back home.
Maria was angry at being left out of the Brave Gate tournament. She won’t forgive or forget being overlooked.
Mochizuki was confused at the team pairings today. Was it 2 on 2 or 3 on 1 or 1 on 3? He made a comment about YAMATO and his stupid long hair. YAMATO warned him that they were all enemies right now. He doesn’t know his exact age. 48, 49, is he 50 now? His haircut is already embarrassing, imagine how bad it will look when it is shaved clean. He also provoked Stalker Ichikawa & Don Fujii for also being old.
Mochizuki refused to let someone like YAMATO, or anyone else cut off the hair he has left. As Dream Gate champion, he has no other option than to escape from the cage and protect his hair.
Antias were not on the same page when it came time for Kanda vs. Kagetora. Both Takagi and Lindaman had mishaps that helped Kagetora pick up the win. Kanda placed the blame squarely on Lindaman so he was now dead set on making sure he ends up bald in Aichi. Lindaman said he was just trying to help a friend win. It isn’t his fault if that friend wasn’t capable of holding his opponent still long enough for Lindaman to connect. Blaming your seconds for your own shortcomings is pretty childish. Takagi told Lindaman that he was the childish one. First he loses to YAMATO, then he causes Kanda to lose. What exactly is he up to? He agrees with Kanda. Lindaman will end up bald in Aichi. Takagi & Kanda went backstage together, leaving Lindaman to wonder how he ended up in this situation.
Kagetora waited around while all of this was going on. He promised to defeat Dragon Kid and take back the Brave Gate. He also wasn’t finished putting out feelers to the various units, so the fans can expect big things to come.
Shimizu said that while both he and Ben lost in their attempts on the Dream Gate, it was just a bump in the road. They had no plans of stopping. Their next target was the Twin Gate. They challenged T-Hawk & Eita to a title match. T-Hawk grumbled, but accepted. They were bored due to the lack of competition. He said Shimizu & Ben weren’t a real tag team. They don’t have the experience or teamwork to match specialists like T-Hawk & Eita. The match was set up for Dead or Alive.
