Kzy⭕️, “brother” YASSHI (17:27 Impact) Susumu Yokosuka, Genki Horiguchi❌
Natural Vibes came out for the main event lottery drawing at the top of the show. Kzy talked about the theme and the rules for the cage match. The representatives will have the power to unilaterally decide what happens to their unit. Natural Vibes have no internal strife. Still, the GM made the match and they can’t refuse to participate. Today they have to have a match with each other. There is supposed to be a lottery drawing but he has a better idea. It’s been about a year since he left Tribe Vanguard to go on his own. Susumu & Horiguchi stood behind him and let him become their leader. He’d like to use this opportunity to fight with them. With them he has formed the best team he has ever been a part of. YASSHI too. If he has to bear the burden and fight for Natural Vibes in the cage, he has no problem doing so. If he is too weak to do it and someone else becomes the Vibes rep he’s fine with that, too. They can even kick him out. This match will let them show each other what they are made of. Kzy & YASSHI vs. Susumu & Horiguchi. How about it?
Susumu said they chose him as their leader for a reason. He agrees with his decisions and this one is no different. Fair and square with no ill will to decide who goes on to Aichi sounded good to him. He & Genki are in their 40s, Kzy & YASSHI are still in their 30s. Maybe the kids will find out how stubborn old men can be. He may have a Brave Gate title match later this week, but don’t think he was just going to lay down and hand over the Vibes representative spot without a fight.
Doi set up Kid for the Ultra Hurricanrana on Minoura, but at the last second pushed him off the ropes. Doi warned him that if he wins the MaxiMuM representative spot and takes a flag, he is going to kick him out. Kid was confused. After he wore the red gear in Korakuen and now attacking him today. Why did he pick him to be his partner? He doesn’t comprehend his thought process. If he wins the representative spot and takes a flag, he isn’t going to kick out anyone. He’s going to keep MaxiMuM together. Doi included.
Ishida & Yoshida had an argument ahead of the Triangle Gate title match in Wakayama. Yoshida blew off the loss today. It was just a nothing match so it meant nothing. R・E・D get serious when the fight is serious. MaxiMuM would be shut up in Wakayama. He also wanted to make it very very very clear to the Kobe fans. In the R・E・D internal strife, he was on Eita’s side.
YAMATO celebrated the big main event win. Oh wait it wasn’t the main event…oh well. He still won! Shimizu sure was looking out of place in R・E・D these days, even with PAC & KAZMA setting him up he couldn’t win. Both he and Ben_k may find themselves kicked out sooner than later. Speaking of being kicked out…Tribe Vanguard will decide their representative tomorrow in Nagoya. There are no disputes in the unit right now, but if the unthinkable happens and they have to make a decision…well…they could probably….for example…Yosuke isn’t around so she could probably get the axe….
Maria’s music his at this point. YAMATO acted as if he saw a ghost. She yelled at YAMATO for being a dick. YAMATO told her he hadn’t seen her in 3 months and for her to suddenly be right up in his face was kinda rough. After some banter, she revealed she would be back in the ring very soon. (This was later announced for April 10th in Tokyo).
After earning the representative spot, Kzy promised to take a flag to ensure no one was kicked out. Even Punch, who didn’t make a similar dramatic appearance like Maria, could rest easy. His spot was safe. He thanked Susumu & Horiguchi for fulfilling his request today and asked for their support during the cage match.
Susumu noted that Kzy’s elbows have gotten much harder over the last year and YASSHI still had a really heavy head. Horiguchi even managed to hit the Beach Break but Kzy still won. He had no problems with Kzy as the Vibes rep. He was going to focus on his Brave Gate match.
Horiguchi lamented that he couldn’t get the pin with the Backslide or the Beach Break. He saw his career flash before his eyes with the Impact at the end. He also had no problems with Kzy. He was going to prepare a secret weapon to provide him support in the cage.
YASSHI talked about the theme of bonds. He hates that word. It’s a lame way to describe what units mean to each other. Even if they are separated, they will always be connected by the vibe they share. That vibe isn’t just a slogan, it’s their lifestyle. That is what Natural Vibes is about. So that means there was only one thing left for them to do today. After beating the hell out of each other it was time for them to dance. Are you ready? They finished off with the Natural Vibes dance.
Backstage they were confronted by Strong Machine G & F who, due to being machines, are incapable of speech. They stood and pointed at them while Vibes wondered what was going on. Where was J? There are a lot of letters in the alphabet. How many others are there? F & G left without incident.
