K-ness. said that even though it was the young generation making waves right now, the veteran ranks still had a lot left in the tank. He’s been sitting back quietly for awhile now, but he plans on making a move in the very near future.
Ichikawa brought a gigantic ladder to the ring with the intent of finishing his feud with Don Fujii once and for all. He was counted out during the match but it was announced that due to how weak he is, he would have until the count of 50 to return to the ring.
Eita ran down Mochizuki Dojo as weaklings. They weren’t suited for main events like the one in Tokyo next month. Without Mochizuki involved, they have nothing. Mochizuki said today was a pretty close match and Eita should not take how far this group has come lightly. He might find himself and his team as the first ones out of the 4 way in Tokyo.
Eita accidentally hit Ben with a chair, leading to the U-T win. Shimizu put all the blame for the loss on him and asked for an explanation. Eita refused to take any blame. They were the ones in the match and they were the ones that lost. Not like Ben-K was capable of doing anything. He can’t even talk. Eita made a mistake, but Ben was the one who got pinned. Aren’t they Twin Gate champions? They keep this up and they won’t be champions much longer. KAI interrupted and said them not being champions much longer sounded good. He & U-T beat the champions today, so it is only fair that they get a title shot. Shimizu told them they didn’t win today, Big Ben lost due to Eita messing up. If they wanted a title match they got one. He warned Eita not to interfere in that one. They weren’t about to lose because of him again.
PAC told Kzy that he tried to warn him, but he wouldn’t listen. Hopefully now he has learned his lesson. He is the Open the Dream Gate Champion. Who in Dragon Gate can stop him now? He is unstoppable, irrefutable, undeniable. Nobody in this company compares to PAC. This brought out Shun Skywalker. He told PAC he wanted to challenge him for the Dream Gate championship. He beat Ben-K in Tokyo last week, but he doesn’t think he has past him yet. If he could beat PAC then that would cement him at the top. Eita tried to run him off but PAC stopped him. PAC said Shun Skywalker is a good fighter. He’s was impressed that Shun wasn’t scared. He was lucky, because PAC was feeling uncharacteristically generous. He accepted his challenge. GM Yagi told Shun this was his chance to show everyone just how far he has come. The match was set for Champion Gate in Osaka on March 3rd.
Kzy was in no condition to talk, so Horiguchi closed the show. He praised Kzy. He was unbelievable. He is looking forward to him continuing to carry Natural Vibes as their leader and he hopes the Hakata fans will continue to cheer for him like they did today. This was the end of the last Dragon Gate show in Hakata Star Lanes. Even though the main event result was a downer, they wanted the fans to leave on a happy note. The roster came to the ring to throw some autographed balls into the crowd. Horiguchi thanked them for coming out and hoped to see them again in Acros Fukuoka on April 27th.
