Dragon Kid happily introduced himself as a member of MaxiMuM. Yoshino was confused. He had heard Kaito Ishida had joined but hadn’t heard anything about DK. He confirmed that he did in fact join at the same time as Ishida. DoiDoi even said that MaxiMuM had 5 members on Twitter. Besides, he had heard Yoshino wanted DK in the unit more than anyone. Yoshino said that really wasn’t true and he was just trying to not hurt his feelings.
None of the students from Mochizuki Dojo were there today, so U-T asked their master to deliver a message. He was done losing to the younger generation. He was never going to forget how humiliating it was to lose to them. He was going to keep up his current momentum and aim for the top of Dragon Gate.
Fresh off his first big win as a member of MaxiMuM, Ishida asked Doi & Jason to team with him and challenge for the Triangle Gate. Doi was impressed at how quickly he delivered results for them. He picked up a clean win over one of the champions, so he saw no reason for Vibes to decline a challenge. Kzy was impressed that Ishida wasn’t taking it easy now that he has gotten into the unit. He was happy to accept the challenge. Ishida was born and raised in Osaka so Kzy could think of no better place for him to show how far he has come. The title match was set for The Gate of Destiny on 11/4.
Punch was once again the victim of a haircut from Eita.
Shimizu ran down the Nagoya fans, before realizing they were actually in Kyoto. These weaklings in Tribe Vanguard have the nerve to call themselves Twin Gate champions? They’ve lost that right after going down so easily to Big! R! Shimizu! They were just a regular, whatever team. When it comes to the ability and popularity required to be Twin Gate champions, the team of Big R Shimizu & Takashi Yoshida has no match. Yoshida revealed that YAMATO & Hulk actually didn’t get along very well. In tag team wrestling, communication is everything. He & Shimizu both graduate from the same elite high school so their communication is perfect. YAMATO confirmed that he & Hulk were good friends and he treats him with respect both inside and outside the ring. He wasn’t surprised to find out that Yoshida & Shimizu were from the same high school. They are both dumbasses that only know how to use brute force.
A Twin Gate title match was set for The Gate of Destiny.
