6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: YAMATO (19:28 Choke Sleeper) Cyber Kong
The contract signing for the Dream Gate title match was held at the start of the show. Kong said that his mighty Pineapple Bomber already injured his throat once. He will do way worse than that today, and there will be no hope for recovery. The next Dream Gate champion will be Cyber Kong.
YAMATO apologized if his voice was difficult to hear. Two weeks ago, he began feeling the feats of a sore throat. After taking a damage to the area from Kong, he was diagnosed with a deformity in the area. He has not competed in two weeks. His throat was still worse for wear, but the rest of him was in peak condition. Kong will feel the wrath of the Dream Gate champion today.
Susumu talked before the opener. The Jimmyz lost yesterday. They weren’t going to give up though. They will just move forward and seize the next opportunity. They would start by exacting some revenge on Verserk today.
After the match, Lindaman ran down the Osaka fans. He wasn’t even trying today. He talked about the upcoming Brave Gate tournament. He was going to smash Eita to bits on his way to becoming the new champion.
Eita reviewed the events from yesterday that led to him being stripped of the Brave Gate. He wasn’t going to let Lindaman and Tominaga go unpunished. In his tournament match with Lindaman he was going to break his arm. Not just beat him, but break his arm.
Doi thanked Ben-K for doing most of the heavy hitting today, and asked him to do it again at Memorial Gate when they go for the Triangle Gate. He saw Yoshino lurking around backstage, so he called him out. He confronted him about his comment yesterday regarding Doi waiting for him. He was doing nothing of the sort! Yoshino told him to not be embarrassed. No need to lie. Shimizu has sent him the LINE chats where Doi said he was waiting for Yoshino. Doi became flustered after Shimizu confirmed the conversation. Yeah, he said it, but only because Yoshino asked him to wait for him! They bantered a bit more before Doi finally admitted he wanted Yoshino to recover and he was waiting for him. Yoshino thanked him and the show began to proceed to intermission when Kotokas’ music hit. He told Doi & Yoshino that he was working hard to rehab from his knee surgery so he could take his spot by their side. Doi bluntly told him no one called him out here. Kotoka said that DoiYoshiKoto sounded like a good team. Doi again wanted nothing to him. He wished him luck with his recovery, but when Doi & Big & Ben take the Triangle Gate there will be no place for Kotoka.
CIMA put over Kzy for his marked improvement over the last few months. To be honest, he didn’t think much of him at this time last year, but he has become a totally different wrestler. He is now one of the most important members of the roster. Hulk, of course, has been important from the start. CK-1 were the winners today, but North Tribe had lots of time left. They were welcome to come after the Twin Gate any time.
Kzy thanked CK-1 for the two title opportunities. He was just getting started. He was inspired by Akira Tozawa risking everything to achieve his dreams. He was going to go after his with the same resolve.
Kong voluntarily removed his mask in the later stages of the match, and also used black mist.
YAMATO closed the show. He is YAMATO of Dragon Gate. He was going to leave his mark on the pro wrestling industry. He was going to be the man to lead Dragon Gate into a golden age. He thanked the Osaka faithful for coming out over the last two days. He promised to succeed through potential defenses in Wakayama and Aichi, and return to Osaka as champion.
