6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (17:09 Double Countout) Gamma
6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (24:54 No Contest) Gamma
*No defense credit given to Takagi
The contract signing for the main event was held at the start of the show. Gamma said he finished all his preparations to take down Takagi and take his title. Takagi said he was a real idiot. If someone like Gamma became champion, the entire reputation of DRAGON GATE would be ruined. Surely fans would prefer someone like him as champion, not a comedy jobber like Gamma? He was showered with boos. He lamented the lack of respect. There was simply no merit to letting someone the level of Gamma fight for the title. However, it was his fault that Takagi lost to that piece of shit Tominaga back in Sambo Hall. He will pay him back for that indignity by destroying him today. They can rest assured he would still be champion after the main event.
Problem Dragon & Kong had a bit of a dispute after their match, prompting them to leave separately.
PT celebrated his big win. Gamma would take the Dream Gate later. In Fukuoka, Eita would take out Kotoka for the Brave Gate. That leaves Doi & YAMATO and the Twin Gate. He put them on notice that he was coming for their belts.
The main event spilled to the floor in the late stages. Takagi attempted to power bomb Gamma onto a pile of chairs on one of the platforms, but it was countered into a Gamma special. At the 15 count Gamma finally headed back to the ring but was prevented from re-entering by VERZERK. The match ended in a double countout. Takagi & VERZERK celebrated since it meant the Dream Gate was safe. Fans booed viciously. They chanted for a restart. Takagi told them to shut the hell up. Don’t you idiots understand the rules of pro wrestling? A count out is one of the possible outcomes. Matches don’t have to always end with a pinfall or submission. That is the result of today’s main event. See you on the 16th. Bye. Kotoka was his usual obnoxious self until Referee Yagi snapped and tossed him over the top rope. Who said anything about the show being over? This result just wouldn’t stand. VERZERK prevented Gamma from returning. This wasn’t right. The match would continue. Takagi flatly refused. The result and his 3rd defense was in the books. Get over it. Yagi became even more enraged. Gamma wanted to continue, and more importantly the fans wanted the match to continue. Yagi told him that if he refused to continue that all VERZERK members would have to relinquish their titles. Problem Dragon & Cyber Kong would have to unmask. Furthermore, Tanizaki would have to cut his hair. After all that, the entire unit would be disbanded! Takagi had no choice but to continue.
The restart just as much of a mess. Gamma had Takagi pinned with the Skytwister Press but Kotoka attacked referee Mr. Nakagawa. VERZERK & OG interfered heavily until the match had to be thrown out.
Gamma was vexed. He knew, Takagi knew, and all the fans knew who really won today. But the referees’ decision is the final decision. He was content with the knowledge that if things ended fairly he would have won. As for the task of taking the Dream Gate title from Takagi, he would leave that to someone else. CIMA gave Takagi a Meteora!
Gamma inspired him. He was the next challenger. He would put an end to this nightmarish reign. Takagi wondered just who gave him the right to name himself the next challenger. The one who decides that is the champion. CIMA noted that he lost by countout and was clearly pinned before the referee was taken out. He has no right to refuse anything right now. His only potential answers were “Yes” “Hai” or “Yes, please”. Takagi was furious. Today fucking sucked. This whole thing was bullshit. Fine. CIMA can have his title match. Takagi would vent all his frustrations out in the ring. CIMA promised to close the year out by putting a stop to the Takagi title reign bad ending streak and once again steer the course of DG history onto the right path.
Doi began talking but received a PT Kick. PT, along with Gamma, challenged DoiYAMA to a Twin Gate title match. Doi was irritated at Gamma wanting another title match so soon after challenging for the Dream Gate, but they don’t run from any challenges. They accept.
At this point, it was brought up that the end of the first December Korakuen is the place that the special main event for the second one is decided. It was time for Doi Darts, right? Doi declined. If people were looking forward to seeing Doi Darts this year, too damn bad. He didn’t have time to make a board. Tozawa came out. He chastised Doi for his lack of preparation. Total neglect of duty. Tozawa talked about the various match selection methods used in the past. Doi Darts, the CIMA Royale, Yoshino Lotto, even the Yagi Bread Survival Elimination. It was time for a new one. The Akira Tozawa Treasure Hunt! Tozawa donned a fedora while the Indiana Jones theme played. The rules were simple. Inside each turnbuckle pad were three with names inside. 10 children were selected from the crowd. Each one got to select one pad, then one envelope from the pad. This would decide the special 10 man tag main event for 12/16. For the red corner, it was Arai, Tanizaki, Tozawa, Shachi, & Yoshino. The blue corner will be Kanda, Doi, El Lindaman, Metal Warrior, & Shisa. At the end of this, there were two pads left unselected. Two more kids were pulled from the crowd. The names selected would be the dark match. Gamma & T-Hawk were picked. After some photos and talk, Gamma was left to close the show.
Next year is his 20th anniversary in wrestling. It has been nearly 10 years since he came to DG. When he first came, he received nothing but boos. Today, it was nothing but cheers. Thank you. He went 8 years between Dream Gate challenges, so he can’t really say when he would get to do so again. But at that time, he hoped everyone would once again support this poor 3rd rate wrestler. Uuuuuu!
