7. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (24:13 Pumping Bomber) Ryo “Jimmy” Saito
The contract signing for the Dream Gate title match was held at the start of the show.
Saito spoke first, greeting the Wakayama fans. Since DG only comes to Wakayama once a year he was very happy to be fighting for the Dream Gate title today. He would put an end to Takagi. As payback for all his bad mouthing of the Jimmyz, and for all he has put the fans through recently. With the fans support and the spirit of the Jimmyz with him, he would surely win.
Takagi praised him for his sentiments. For the fans? For the Jimmyz? What a bunch of bullshit. He knows Saito has a lower back injury. It would be broken in half today. Saito was going to enter a world he didn’t belong in. A world where only the strong survive.
Kotoka accidentally hit Tanizaki while trying to interfere, allowing Maria to win. Tanizaki gave him a bodyslam for his trouble afterwards.
Takagi celebrated and boasted. What would Saito do now? Did his back hurt? Poor thing. He should go away. If he’s gone that means Kotoka can wrestle more. Everyone wins. He was disgusted by Saitos’ hair. He called Kotoka, who came to the ring with scissors. This is what happens to the weak in the new Dragon Gate. This is how things work. He cut Saitos’ hair.
Next, Takagi turned to YAMATO & Doi. Surely they would respect and praise him now. Doi told him to calm down. Sure, he won today. Cool. All due respect given. He brought the title back to Verserk like he promised, so everything is good on that front as far as Doi sees it. However, he is not pleased with Kotoka. With Kotoka around, their power balance is off. He can’t accept that. Takagi was confused. As long as he has the Dream Gate around his waist, the balance of power was fine. With the tension starting to boil, Doi, YAMATO, & Tanizaki left together. Mondai Ryu seemed like he wanted to do the same, but Takagi forced him to stay. Takagi & Kotoka were left in the ring for the official belt presentation ceremony.
The crowd was lukewarm as always. Takagi lamented the lack of reaction. This is reality. Shingo Takagi was the winner. Ryo Saito is a loser. The loss to Susumu only helped him regain his focus. No more half measures. The weak would be eaten. Only the strong survive.
The Jimmyz were left to salvage the ending of the show. Saito thanked the fans for coming. He apologized for losing, and the disgraceful haircutting scene. He brought up the DEAD or ALIVE cage match. The natural course of action was to challenge Takagi & Kotoka for that match. But he wasn’t going to do that. He’s been growing his hair out for two years. This was as good a time as any to cut it. He would return to his old short hair style now. Or maybe he would try something like what Horiguchi has…..
Horiguchi noted that he was all natural, no styling needed.
They ended things with a Jimmyz Train to send the Wakayama fans home happy.
