7. Open the Twin Gate Championship Match: YAMATO, BxB Hulk (22:33 No Contest due to Antias interference) Naruki Doi, Big R Shimizu
The contact signing for the main event was held at the top of the show. Shimizu was soooooo happy that the day had finally arrived. He gets to team with the World Famous Naruki Doi. He will put his own body on the line to keep him safe and make sure they take the Twin Gate. Doi told him he should probably act a little more seriously. Big agreed and shouted “LET’S GET THOSE TWIN GATE TITLES!”. He shouted it at Doi, who told him he should be saying it towards the champions. Doi promised the fans that they would win and to look forward to the main event.
Hulk called Shimizu an idiot. Since he was bad at speeches he left the rest to YAMATO. YAMATO never expected such an atmosphere before a Twin Gate title match. This is all because of Shimizu. Him just being involved lowers the value of the title. He will get his divine retribution in the main event.
Kanda gave Ishida the Ryu’s, but a nonchalant cover allowed Ishida to roll him up for the upset. Yoshida once again invited him to join Antias. Eita also tried to convince him, but Ishida turned his back and left. Yoshida pointed out that in Kyoto, he outright refused. This clearly means he is coming around. Eita said it was just a manner of time. As for the semi-final today. In Kobe he took Dragon Kid’s belt and his mask. Today he was going to try and end his career.
Mochizuki refused to make a unit with the 3 rookies. He was going to base his decision on how they performed. If he felt one of them outperformed him he would say yes. They didn’t. If they made a unit now, he would clearly be the leader. There is no point. Over Generation just split up, no need to revisit that concept. If one of them can achieve that status and stand out as a leader, he would offer his full support. It’s too soon now. Watanabe asked if it was still possible to learn from him. Mochizuki said this would not be a problem, since they wrestle for the same company. Watanabe proposed that instead of a unit, Mochizuki start a dojo. Master Mochizuki. Yoshioka called him Master and asked him to teach him how to wrestle. Mochizuki chastised him for interfering after he was eliminated. He agreed to their dojo idea under two conditions. #1 – It’s a dojo, not a unit. There will be times that they team together and there will be times they fight each other. It can be easier to teach through combat. #2 – Anyone can come and go as they please. Others can join if they want and no hard feelings if you decide to join someone else. Watanabe said the four of them would train hard under Master Mochizuki in the hopes of being able to make it a real unit some day.
Yoshida pinned the Dream Gate champion so we all know what was coming next. He wanted to hear Yoshino say it. Yoshino had no idea what he meant. Did he mean he wanted a title shot? Since he lost today, he wouldn’t be much of a champion if he didn’t want payback. He accepted the challenge. Yoshida had an extra demand. He wanted a stipulation added where Yoshino couldn’t win by flash pin. If he really was the strongest wrestler in Dragon Gate he should have no problem with it. Yoshino accepted. With those out of play, Yoshida said victory was certain. He was going to break his neck again and leave as Dream Gate champion.
Antias interfered in the final stages of the main event. Shimizu prevented Eita from hitting Doi with a chair, but on the ensuing exchange he caught Doi by the throat and delivered a Shot-put Slam. The match was quickly ruled a no contest at that point.
Who’s the idiot now? These last few months have been fun. Did he really think Big! R! Shimizu! would team with the likes of Naruki Doi? What a dumbfuck he is. Hilarious. Shimizu revealed himself as a new member of Antias. Yoshino wondered if he had any idea what he has done. Shimizu wondered how long Yoshino was going to put up with Doi. DoiYoshiDoiYoshiDoiYoshiDoiYoshi, DoiYoshi is a thing of the past. Finished. Yoshino should come with him to Antias. He talked it over with the others and they thought it was a good idea. Yoshino dismissed that. Shimizu has always been useless. It was time for DoiYoshi to show him his place. Shimizu has made a massive mistake. Throwing a title match, joining Antias. MaxiMuM wanted some revenge. Shimizu & Eita pointed out that MaxiMuM only had 3 members now. Antias had 5. If Doi wanted revenge, it would have to be 3 on 5. Or Doi could fight by himself. The results would be the same, anyway. Which way did he want it? Doi asked them if they watched Mochizuki earlier. 1 on 3 was winnable. Well. 1 on 5 would be harder. 3 on 5 too. So….just this once…..he asked YAMATO & Hulk to help him out. YAMATO refused. Doi put up with that idiot and his bullshit for two months. They should have seen this coming. They made their bed now they have to lie in it. They weren’t getting involved.
Ben-K stopped YAMATO as he tried to leave. He politely, but firmly, asked them to help. YAMATO brought up the stunt MaxiMuM pulled back at Dead or Alive where they went back on their brother unit promise. Ben again just simply asked them to please help. YAMATO relented. Doi & Yoshino should be really really grateful for Ben. Eita said this scene of friendship was disgusting. (to which a child from the audience replied that Eita was the disgusting one to a huge ovation). GM Yagi made the match for the September 6th Korakuen. Eita had one thing left to say. He was going to steal Doi’s favorite phrase. He’s working on something behind the scenes, and they will never see it coming. See you next month.
YAMATO reiterated that this was a one time alliance. Payback to Shimizu for today. Doi & Yoshino should say thank you to Ben.
Doi admitted he should have seen it coming, but he wants to expect the best of people. He is pretty good at betrayals, but not that good at being betrayed. Yoshino knows that better than anyone…They shared some fun banter about their history before thanking the fans for coming to close out the show.
