Dragon Kid & Ishida were again announced as Self-Proclaimed MaxiMuM members. DK took exception to it, but also was a little upset that DoiDoi & Yoshino haven’t allowed them to join yet. They may need to take a more direct approach.
Antias had intruded on the main event to cause the DQ. Shimizu said no one wanted to see the likes of Doi wrestle so Antias did everyone a favor and brought a quick ending to the match. Everyone can go home now. Doi said a main event ending like this is unacceptable and demanded a restart. Antias refused and MaxiMuM accused them of being cowards. Antias agreed to wrestle again, but only if the whole unit was in the match, making it 5 on 3. DK & Kaito hit the ring at this point, in full MaxiMuM themed ring gear. Doi had several complaints but they could wait until after the match. An impromptu 10 man match was started.
Eita protested to referee Yagi. He clearly kicked out at two but Yagi counted the pin anyway. Bullshit. He told DK that their upcoming Brave Gate match was going to be a bloodbath. He was going to break every bone in his tiny body and his career was going to come to an end.
Doi celebrated the win but quickly turned attention to DK & Ishida. They apologized for not having the ring gear ready earlier. They are handmade, custom orders so it took a few days for them to finish. Doi pointed out that their MaxiMuM gear was more MaxiMuM than the real MaxiMuM members. Doi tried to talk them into considering another unit. DK breakdances during his entrance so maybe Natural Vibes would be a better fit. Tribe Vanguard has green in their camouflage so he would fit right in there. DK was undeterred. He was planning to be at ringside at Dangerous Gate to provide support.
