Ichikawa made his usual plea for a rematch. Mochizuki declined. He was hungry and had some fresh beef tongue waiting for him. Satomura took the microphone and said that she was here to fight with Mochizuki. She didn’t even get into the match at all. Mochizuki said there would be other opportunities, but not today. Satomura is the KO-D champion. She defeated male wrestlers to become champion. Maybe…Mochizuki is just scared? This was enough to get Mochizuki back and the match was restarted.
After the match, Mochizuki lamented Ichikawa losing yet another intergender match. Ichikawa said if he had to lose, he was fine with losing to Cassandra because she is pretty cute. Ichikawa invited her out for a drink, to which she accepted as long as he was paying for it. He agreed and off they went. Mochizuki wondered if he could afford that, since he hasn’t wrestled much recently……
Mochizuki thanked Satomura for coming. It seems new love came from the match. Ichikawa is a divorcee…but it should be fine, right? Satomura said that the usual 3 No’s of women’s wrestling rules are a little looser these days. Mochizuki gave some praise to Satomura and thanked the Sendai fans for coming today.
At the contract signing the previous night, Eita had challenged Punch to put his hair up in their match. It wasn’t agreed to, but after his heavily Antias-assisted win he went to collect on the stipulation. The other Vibes members made the save. They’ve been content to stay out of the Antias / MaxiMuM feud but they won’t stand back and let one of their own get humiliated. If Antias wanted a fight with them it was on. Shimizu berated them as having nothing besides their stupid dance. A brawl between the two sides broke out and ended up taking them backstage.
YAMATO had been waiting 12 years for this. He was finally able to bring Dragon Gate to Sendai Sun Plaza. He wasn’t in the main event and that stings, but he knows the Dream Gate match will deliver and hopes the fans enjoy it.
Yoshino thanked the fans for their support today. He is feeling the effects of the match. The Dream Gate title is only about 10 kg, but he is having trouble holding it up. But, thanks to the fans he is still champion. So that means it is time to address his next challenger. Naruki Doi left the announce table and got into the ring.
On September 24th, it will be Masato Yoshino vs. Naruki Doi for the Dream Gate. Putting aside his allegiances to MaxiMuM, Doi is a wrestler first and foremost. That means it is only natural for him to want to be champion. He wants the Dream Gate because he is a Dragon Gate wrestler. There are others out there that have decided to quit, but he will be here, in Dragon Gate, until the end. Yoshino asked for one favor. No betrayals. Either he would win, or Doi would win. No backstabbing to get there. Doi has done that twice, you know. He went for a handshake and Doi got him up for the Doi 555, but Yoshino escaped. Doi assured him that was just how he says hello.
Dragon Kid got in the ring at this point and asked if it was OK for him to be in one of their corners. Doi gave him permission, because it’s always useful to have more help in your corner in big matches, but that doesn’t mean he’s changed his mind about MaxiMuM. They had another long back and forth that ended with DK & Kaito still on the outside.
