6. ☆Tribe Vanguard Steel Cage Representative Decision Match☆
YAMATO⭕️, U-T (16:46 Galleria) Kagetora❌, KAI

Tribe Vanguard came out to decide the pairings for their match. U-T explained the cage match rules. YAMATO once again said that in the worst case scenario maybe Yosuke could get kicked out. This brought Maria to the ring. She chastised YAMATO for being a dick and promoted her return match on 4/10.
The main event was set as YAMATO & U-T vs. Kagetora & KAI.

Maria asked them for them thoughts. First KAI. KAI said he still didn’t really understand what was going on. Maria told him he didn’t need to know. Kagetora said even though U-T was on a roll and YAMATO & KAI were formidable foes he was fully prepared to go into the cage to keep Tribe Vanguard together. YAMATO put aside the joking from before. Now that Maria was back it was Hulk’ turn. He had to have a home to return to, so Tribe Vanguard had to stay together. Maria had her opinion of him changed back to love. U-T also promised to take a flag and keep Tribe together if he wins today.

Mochizuki told Yoshioka he wanted this match today to see just what kind of form he was in going into their Twin Gate challenge next weekend. He was impressed. If Yoshioka can fight like he did today they have a real chance of becoming champions. Yoshioka was looking forward to prove that Shun Skywalker wasn’t the only one who is on the rise in Dojo Mochizuki.

Kid talked about the cage match. If you are in it and you get a flag, you earn the option to kick someone out of your unit. Doi has already said he was planning on kicking Kid out. That’s why he has to win the rep spot for himself. He won’t kick anyone out. That includes Doi. MaxiMuM is the 5 of them. Yoshino said he was saying all the right things, but his actions since the beginning of the year say something different. MaxiMuM may find themselves in turmoil if Kid takes a flag. As for Doi, well, Yoshino has been betrayed by him two times already. The only way to keep MaxiMuM safe was for him to do it himself. Ishida admitted he didn’t know who was an ally or who was an enemy when it came to Doi or Kid. He’s not really a fan of roller coasters so he wanted off of this one. He was confident he could get out of the cage first and put this whole behind them so he hoped Yoshino would back him up.

As he seems to every year, YAMATO will enter the cage. He always hates it, but he has a different outlook this year. 3 years ago, he got kicked out of Verserk but was saved by Maria & Hulk. He was eternally grateful for that. He will get to repay them by keeping Tribe Vanguard together. He then noticed Maria was crying. If he was so grateful about that time why was he joking about kicking her out!? YAMATO assured her that it was a joke. The fans will get bored if you are serious all the time. Since this was Nagoya, he passed to U-T to close the show.
He felt they just affirmed their bonds by fighting today. He was fully confident in YAMATO’s ability to escape the cage. He hoped to see the fans again on 4/12 in Tsuyuhashi and told them to look forward to a happy ending for Tribe Vanguard on May 6th.

6. ☆Natural Vibes Dead or Alive Representative Decision Match☆
Kzy⭕️, “brother” YASSHI (17:27 Impact) Susumu Yokosuka, Genki Horiguchi❌

Natural Vibes came out for the main event lottery drawing at the top of the show. Kzy talked about the theme and the rules for the cage match. The representatives will have the power to unilaterally decide what happens to their unit. Natural Vibes have no internal strife. Still, the GM made the match and they can’t refuse to participate. Today they have to have a match with each other. There is supposed to be a lottery drawing but he has a better idea. It’s been about a year since he left Tribe Vanguard to go on his own. Susumu & Horiguchi stood behind him and let him become their leader. He’d like to use this opportunity to fight with them. With them he has formed the best team he has ever been a part of. YASSHI too. If he has to bear the burden and fight for Natural Vibes in the cage, he has no problem doing so. If he is too weak to do it and someone else becomes the Vibes rep he’s fine with that, too. They can even kick him out. This match will let them show each other what they are made of. Kzy & YASSHI vs. Susumu & Horiguchi. How about it?
Susumu said they chose him as their leader for a reason. He agrees with his decisions and this one is no different. Fair and square with no ill will to decide who goes on to Aichi sounded good to him. He & Genki are in their 40s, Kzy & YASSHI are still in their 30s. Maybe the kids will find out how stubborn old men can be. He may have a Brave Gate title match later this week, but don’t think he was just going to lay down and hand over the Vibes representative spot without a fight.

Doi set up Kid for the Ultra Hurricanrana on Minoura, but at the last second pushed him off the ropes. Doi warned him that if he wins the MaxiMuM representative spot and takes a flag, he is going to kick him out. Kid was confused. After he wore the red gear in Korakuen and now attacking him today. Why did he pick him to be his partner? He doesn’t comprehend his thought process. If he wins the representative spot and takes a flag, he isn’t going to kick out anyone. He’s going to keep MaxiMuM together. Doi included.

Ishida & Yoshida had an argument ahead of the Triangle Gate title match in Wakayama. Yoshida blew off the loss today. It was just a nothing match so it meant nothing. R・E・D get serious when the fight is serious. MaxiMuM would be shut up in Wakayama. He also wanted to make it very very very clear to the Kobe fans. In the R・E・D internal strife, he was on Eita’s side.

YAMATO celebrated the big main event win. Oh wait it wasn’t the main event…oh well. He still won! Shimizu sure was looking out of place in R・E・D these days, even with PAC & KAZMA setting him up he couldn’t win. Both he and Ben_k may find themselves kicked out sooner than later. Speaking of being kicked out…Tribe Vanguard will decide their representative tomorrow in Nagoya. There are no disputes in the unit right now, but if the unthinkable happens and they have to make a decision…well…they could probably….for example…Yosuke isn’t around so she could probably get the axe….
Maria’s music his at this point. YAMATO acted as if he saw a ghost. She yelled at YAMATO for being a dick. YAMATO told her he hadn’t seen her in 3 months and for her to suddenly be right up in his face was kinda rough. After some banter, she revealed she would be back in the ring very soon. (This was later announced for April 10th in Tokyo).

After earning the representative spot, Kzy promised to take a flag to ensure no one was kicked out. Even Punch, who didn’t make a similar dramatic appearance like Maria, could rest easy. His spot was safe. He thanked Susumu & Horiguchi for fulfilling his request today and asked for their support during the cage match.
Susumu noted that Kzy’s elbows have gotten much harder over the last year and YASSHI still had a really heavy head. Horiguchi even managed to hit the Beach Break but Kzy still won. He had no problems with Kzy as the Vibes rep. He was going to focus on his Brave Gate match.
Horiguchi lamented that he couldn’t get the pin with the Backslide or the Beach Break. He saw his career flash before his eyes with the Impact at the end. He also had no problems with Kzy. He was going to prepare a secret weapon to provide him support in the cage.
YASSHI talked about the theme of bonds. He hates that word. It’s a lame way to describe what units mean to each other. Even if they are separated, they will always be connected by the vibe they share. That vibe isn’t just a slogan, it’s their lifestyle. That is what Natural Vibes is about. So that means there was only one thing left for them to do today. After beating the hell out of each other it was time for them to dance. Are you ready? They finished off with the Natural Vibes dance.

Backstage they were confronted by Strong Machine G & F who, due to being machines, are incapable of speech. They stood and pointed at them while Vibes wondered what was going on. Where was J? There are a lot of letters in the alphabet. How many others are there? F & G left without incident.
