This time, Metal Warrior gave Kagetora the Darkness Buster. Shimizu tried to console him. He told Kagetora that he solved the mystery. Metal Warrior was clearly K-ness.! Kagetora agreed. This was a conspiracy. Susumu, K-ness., & Saito have all attacked him. Was Horiguchi next? Shimizu told him to keep it together. You have to be prepared for these sorts of things. Kagetora was upset over being attacked by his former Jimmyz friends. Horiguchi wasn’t in the building today. He planned on giving him a call so they could discuss this turn of events. Shimizu turned his attention to U-T. Shimizu admitted he has taken a liking to him. He invited him to join MaxiMuM. Doi immediately jumped in and put a stop to it. Does Shimizu even pay attention? U-T was going to join either Tribe Vanguard or Over Generation later. He’s totally clueless! He can’t make decisions like this without first running it by Doi & Yoshino. Shimizu is the lowest ranked guy in MaxiMum. Lower than Ben or Kotoka. He can’t make these decisions. MaxiMuM just added Jason Lee. That’s enough for now. He apologized to U-T for the trouble.

Eita told Susumu not to get too excited over beating the likes of Punch. Eita berated Punch for his constant failures and backfiring interference. He should watch how it is done in the main event when the rest of Verserk take out those old timers. He ran down the fans. They don’t know how to cheer, they don’t know how to boo. They just sit there like idiots. Why are they even here? They are here to see Verserk, of course. He promised a win in the main event to send them all home happy.

Maria was once again absent due to injury. The match was quickly changed to a 3 on 2 handicap match. Kzy was very excited after the win. He welcomed U-T to the unit with open arms. U-T was grateful but reserved. Kzy pressed him about it, and he showed a little more gratitude. Hulk said he parents must be very proud of him.

Takagi and Saito had a confrontation after the main event. Takagi told him that he wouldn’t even make it to their “special” match in Korakuen. They were going to go head to head in Sapporo and that would be where this whole thing ends. Saito can then go back to his precious Owarai Gate title and bullshit comedy. Their ideas of what pro wrestling is are very very different. Saito isn’t a worthy opponent for him. If he manages to make it to Korakuen that would be an extermination match. Saito wondered if cheating to win and dirty tactics were Takagi’s idea of what pro wrestling is. Was Takagi even capable of doing a match that makes the fans happy? Dragon Gate was serious but it was also about entertaining the fans. He won’t let someone like Takagi belittle his style. He won’t let their tag tournament match end via the same rule breaking as today. It would end with Takagi going down for the 3 count. In Korakuen he would be driven into the mat for good.

Lindaman didn’t care about any of this. His focus was on Mochizuki & Fujii. They may have been getting the best of him recently, but in Korakuen he would have the greatest tag team in Dragon Gate history on his side in T-Hawk & Eita. MochiFujii would just be another pair of broken down has-beens after their match. Mochizuki was impressed with his confidence. However, it would actually be better for T-Hawk & Eita if Linda wasn’t in the match at all. It would increase their chances and would save Lindaman from another ass kicking.

Metal Warrior once again attacked Kagetora. This time he gave him Susumu’s Mugen.

CIMA vacated the Owarai Gate, so Ichikawa demanded his match with Saito be made into match to decide the new champion. Saito told him that CIMA vacated the title because no one wants the title. It is an annoyance. He didn’t want it either so today would not be a title match. Ichikawa pleaded with him. This was the first major event in Tohoku so they should get to see a new champion crowned. Saito reminded him that his record against him was 100-0. Saito eventually agreed as long as Ichikawa promised to try harder than he normally does. In the fan result, Ichikawa received applause from around 22 fans. The rest cheered for Saito so he became the new champion.

Verserk attacked Saito afterwards. Takagi wondered why he was slacking off in a match like this when he has such an important fight coming up in Korakuen Hall on 12/5. The first event like this in Tohoku and he chooses to do some bullshit comedy match? What a joke. If this was all he could bring himself to do then they should just cancel their match and Saito can be forced to join Verserk without any beatings. Saito defended doing comedy matches. Putting smiles on faces and making the fans laugh was also an important part of the Dragon Gate style. Things would be different in Korakuen. There would be no laughing when he puts Takagi down on the mat for the 1-2-3. Verserk attacked him again. Tribe Vanguard came to make the save.
They had a back and forth with Verserk about the main event. Eita and Verserk would never lose to a group of hicks like these three. The rest of the hicks in Sendai can look forward to the worst of endings to this so called big show.
YAMATO gave a quick speech. First things first, Eita is from a backwoods redneck ass town in Nagano so he has a lot of nerve calling anyone a hick. Doing a big show in Tohoku has been his dream for a long time. He hopes that a lot of fans in Tohoku had the same dream. Today that dream came true. Losing in the main event just wasn’t an option. He promised to defeat Verserk and send everyone home happy.

Kagetora confronted Susumu after his match. In Nobeoka it was the Yokosuka Cutter. Today it was the Mugen. The evidence could not be any more clear. Metal Warrior is Susumu. Susumu denied the allegations. He mentioned that while Metal Warrior has used the Yokosuka Cutter & the Mugen, he also used the Cycling Yahoo. Maybe he should be interrogating Ryo Saito. Kagetora said that maybe it was a RyoSuka scheme, but Metal Warrior is absolutely Susumu. Kagetora said he is devastated by this turn of events. If he wanted a Brave Gate shot, all he had to do was ask. Kage is ready for it. Susumu said he is the one that isn’t ready for it. He isn’t interested. Kagetora asked him to do him one favor. Next time he attacks him, do it without the mask on. Susumu was totally lost at this point so he just asked the fans to enjoy the rest of the show.

YAMATO closed the show with a speech. Today wasn’t the goal. Today was just the first step off of the starting line. Sadly, he lost the Dream Gate title back in September and was unable to main event today as champion. The venue today was also a bit lacking. Fans in the back probably had a hard time seeing the ring. That won’t happen next year. On September 9th 2018, Dragon Gate will; for real this time; hold their first ever show in Sendai Sun Plaza. It is a large hall with 3 floors of seats. Everyone will be able to clearly see the ring. There was no Dream Gate match today. Next year, there will be. If he has to take the title back himself to fulfill this promise he will do so. Maybe. Tribe Vanguard shared some banter. YAMATO thanked the fans for coming out and making today a huge success.

Hulk promised that Tribe Vanguard would win the Battle for U-T on Tuesday. He offered a handshake but U-T refused. He simply bowed and left the ring.

Metal Warrior attacked Kagetora again, this time applying the Cycling Yahoo.

Takagi told Saito not to celebrate his win today. This was nothing. The real fight is their upcoming match in Korakuen. After Takagi destroys him he will have to join Verserk and live the life of a bottomfeeder. His Verserk ring gear has already been made, since the result isn’t in doubt. He will regret ever picking a fight with Shingo Takagi. Saito should enjoy his remaining days as a happy go lucky wrestler because they will be coming to an end on December 5th.

Saito promised that Takagi would be the one embarrassed. He hasn’t done anything since the Jimmyz broke up but their match will be the first of many challenges he plans on making.
