Mochizuki asked the fans to wait just a bit longer to begin intermission and listen to what he has to say. He talked about the prior Shimizu/T-Hawk match and the upcoming Unit Disbands match. After their match, T-Hawk blamed Shimizu for this predicament. He was the one who blew up and accepted the match. Mochizuki pointed out that Shachi was just as guilty in that regard. Stop placing blame, and stop being scared. You can dwell on the negatives or you can dwell on the positives, but the match is gonna happen. He knows there are people who want Dia HEARTS to win, just like there are fans who will cheer to the end for MONSTER EXPRESS. It is a bad situation, but all he can do is protect his own unit. In March, Dia HEARTS will be the unit that returns to Osaka alive.
Doi demanded a more festive reaction from the fans, as they continue to put the Twin Gate title defense record out of reach. 9 defenses. YAMATO said wondered if there were any challengers left in DRAGON GATE to face them. Whoever it ends up being, their 10th defense will take place during CHAMPION GATE in Osaka in March. He passed to Takagi.
Takagi congratulated them for their defense. Now it was his turn. He called Susumu to the ring. He managed to get a fluke win today. Cool. Congratulations. Everyone knows it was a fluke. Was it worth it? His arm sure looks hurt. They will surely face off again a few more times before their title match. The rest of Susumus’ body will be broken down and useless by the time they get to Hakata. After Hakata, we probably won’t see him for awhile. The Jimmyz lost today, they will lose in Hakata. Fans should prepare themselves for a long run of VERZERK title defenses.
Susumu said a win was a win. He was the winner today. He talked about it being 10 years since his Dream Gate reign. He has tried and failed many times since then. It was right here in Osaka that he lost the title. The Susumu we see today is not the same Susumu. He will carry all of the emotions and troubles of the Jimmyz on his back into battle. At CHAMPION GATE he will be the one making the title defense.
Doi & YAMATO once again celebrated their title defense to close out the show.
