Match two was suddenly made into a decision match for the vacant Owarai Gate. CIMA won the fan decision, but paused after putting the belt on. This title originated with Ichikawa so maybe he should have it. Ichikawa admitted that he wanted it. But he was also in KING OF GATE this year. He couldn’t do that and still be champion. He came up with a compromise. Punch Tominaga was at ringside seconding CIMA. PT wasn’t in KING OF GATE. If PT wanted to be in, he could have Ichikawas’ spot. Ichikawa would than accept the Owarai Gate and defend it to the best of his ability. Tominaga accepted and promised to win the whole thing. Ichikawa ended up as champion.
