The non-VERZERK portion of the roster came to the ring for a New Year’s greeting. Susumu was selected to do the honours. He wished everyone a happy new year and thanked them for coming out in large numbers to the first show of the 2016 season. All the staff & wrestlers intended to make this year even more exciting than the last one, and asked everyone to come along for the ride.
Gamma & Yamamura celebrated the big upset over CIMA. This is exactly the kind of result OVER GENERATION was formed for. Yamamura said that he was planning on a big year. Not just for him, but for the entire unit.
CIMA lamented. After his loss in Fukuoka, he spent some time contemplating what kind of year 2016 would be for him. This was a wake-up call. He lost to Gamma all the time, but to lose to someone so early in their career was a bit shocking. But he accepted the loss. He asked the fans to support and enjoy OVER GENERATION in 2016.
Susumu spoke again after his win. He already said a lot in the opening greeting, but he neglected to mention something important. His title match on 02/14 in Hakata. He has challenged for the Dream Gate many times since his reign in 2006. He has failed in all of them. He watched Fujii, Mochizuki, and CIMA fall to Takagi. It made him think about his place as someone who has been around since the beginning of the company. The meaning isn’t lost on him. He will take the title from Takagi because he HAS to. He promised to have the title belt around his waist when they come back to Kyoto next month.
VERZERK quickly swarmed Shachi at the start of the match, allowing Takagi to put him away in a mere 3 minutes. Doi celebrated to a chorus of boos. Why were they booing? It was a fair & square, clean pin. Was it Stalker Ichikawa under that mask? Did Shachi still think he was on his New Year break? Doesn’t he understand this is the main event? The show is now over this early because of him.
Tozawa pleaded with them. This really sucks. They were totally right. He berated Shachi, trying to fire him up. He asked VERZERK for a restart.
Wow. Begging for restarts. They really were Stalker Ichikawa level. Doi wondered what Shachi was feeling, having to have his teammates stoop to such levels to cover for his failures. They can have their restart. It doesn’t matter how many matches they have. The result will be the same. Go ahead and ring the bell.
After winning again, Doi continued his taunts. After losing two times in one night on the first show, MONSTER EXPRESS should be eliminated completely from the unit battlefield for 2016. The Jimmyz & Dia HEARTS too. After getting swept in the Fukuoka title matches OVER GENERATION shouldn’t even in contention to begin with. VERZERK would assert their dominance by taking all three main event matches in this series.
Dia HEARTS came out. Shimizu told VERZERK they were successful in 2015, but that would all change in 2016. DH would go on the attack this year, and their first target is VERZERK in the main event tomorrow. That would put a stop to all of this. Mochizuki added that Shimizu would be getting more time as the DH spokesman this year.
YAMATO closed out the show, telling the fans to look forward to VERZERK being the coolest and sexiest unit again this year.
