The show opened with a moment of silence for Hayabusa. Hayabusa was very close to many in the company, from past relationships borne in FMW, to his work with Dragon Gate Records. His song Curtain Call is played at the end of every show. He was the closest with Dragon Kid, who gave an emotional speech.
They met 22 years ago, when DK was only 18 years old. Hayabusa was the ace of FMW by then. He was the type of wrestler DK aspired to be. He was a mentor, but he was more like a brother. Hayabusa loves to drink and he was the one who taught DK how to party. He always showed concern when DK was injured doing precarious moves. He warned him and cared for him. He struggled everyday to recover from his terrible injury. He finally was able to stand in the ring again. They made many memories together. They sang duets live together. But there will be no new memories. He began to cry here. He is not sure whay tomorrow holds. However, Hayabusa would want him to stay postive and continue pushing pro wrestling forward. He dreamed of standing with Hayabusa together in the ring some day. Unfortunately that now can’t happen but all the DG wrestlers & staff will carry his spirit with them forever. Thank you, Eiji Ezaki. Rest in peace.
He closed with Hayabusas’ favorite phrase. The fun has only just begun. Hayabusas’ FIGHT WITH DREAM entrance music played to end the memorial.
Eita did his usual begging to DK to he his life coach. CIMA mediated. Since those two will be teaming in Korakuen to protect PTs’ career they should probably get some practice in. He suggest the teams change to DK & Eita vs. himself & Kzy.
A framed picture of Hayabusa was given a ringside seat to see DK use his trademark Firebird Splash as a tribute. He exited to FIGHT WITH DREAM.
Maria celebrated her first ever singles title win. She thanked the fans for cheering her to victory. She told her parents that she did it, but they weren’t there to see it. They were still against her being a wrestler and have never come to see a match. She hoped now that she was a champion they would consider it.
While thanking the fans again, Tanizaki attacked.
He mocked her parents. He was going to be her first challenger and put an end to this embarrassment. The ugly tranny would not be champion for long.
Maria was enraged and the shots at her parents. The challenge was accepted, and set for 03/21 at MEMORIAL GATE in Wakayama.
Takagi addressed Susumu. He reiterated that there would be no help from his seconds tomorrow. He would fight him straight up and beat him. He’s had to deal with the shame of losing in Hakata for three weeks. All that frustration would be unleashed on Susumu. He is 23rd champion in name only. In reality he is just keeping the belt warm. That ends tomorrow, and once again only the strong will survive.
Verserk attacked after the main event. They put forth YAMATO, Doi, & Kotoka as the next Triangle Gate challengers. Tozawa warned Doi that that was essentially a handicap match for him & YAMATO. Kotoka quickly noted he only lost today because he wanted to challenge for the Triangle. He was permanent honourary Brave Gate champion anyway! The match was set for Wakayama.
The Sumoz & MONSTER EXPRESS closed out the show with am extra large Jimmyz train.
