Hulk came out after Takagi’s match. It’s too bad he lost in his final match at a Dangerous Gate as a Dragon Gate wrestler. He hates his guts, but there really is no other choice but for them to face off one more time, in Takagi’s last match in DG on October 7th in Hakata. Takagi was flattered by the crush Hulk seems to have on him. He agreed that there was no other opponent that fit the occasion. But, he had one favor to ask. They were talking about Hakata, but they were in Tokyo. There was a show in Korakuen Hall coming up on the 2nd. He asked Hulk to team with him for the first time in almost 10 years. Hulk agreed. Backstage, Takagi was confronted by his former Antias stablemates who accused him of falling into the friendship club bullshit he always claimed to be against. It was decided that Takagi & Hulk will face off with Eita and a mystery partner.
Antias unveiled their new name as R.E.D., which stands for Real Extreme Diffusion. Their mystery partner and new member was revealed to be KAZMA SAKAMOTO, formerly of K-Dojo & WWE.
After the match, R.E.D. isolated Tominaga and cut his hair again. Shimizu called Natural Vibes a trash unit who had nothing but a stupid dance. NV made the save for Punch. Horiguchi didn’t know or care if they were calling themselves L.E.D. or R.E.D. or whatever. This fight was just beginning and they would know hell before it was over. Another brawl broke out that took them backstage.
Even though they have an ew name and new membership, DK & Kaito haven’t forgotten that it was Eita and his crew that ended Over Generation. To get payback is the entire reason they joined(?) MaxiMuM. Taking the Brave Gate back was just another step towards that.
Shun refused to shake hands with the champion team and stormed off by himself.
R.E.D. attacked before Yoshino could celebrate. Shimizu said no one wanted to see this whatever match between whatever wrestlers. The fans didn’t come to see them wrestle, they came to hear Big R Shimizu speak. He knows Yoshino is a little stupid, so he is going to explain to him why R.E.D. was here. They were here because the next Dream Gate challenger is none other than Ben-K. Eita told Yoshino he had no chance of winning against Ben-K. As for Dragon Kid, he shouldn’t get too comfortable. Eita isn’t going to rest until he ends his career. He warned that the 3rd in his series of reveals was coming in Korakuen Hall on the 2nd.
Yoshino had doubts about giving a title shot to someone who couldn’t ask for it himself. He wouldn’t let the title fall to the likes of him.
Yoshino thanked the fans for coming to the show. He called Doi amazing. They are stablemates in MaxiMuM and teammates in DoiYoshi so he knows him better than anyone, but fighting against him reaffirms everything he knew. When Doi laid out the challenge for this match, he said that his home is and always will be Dragon Gate. He wants the fans to know that Masato Yoshino also is and always will be, Dragon Gate. While he was relieved that he won the match, he was more relieved that Doi didn’t turn on him in the process. Doi has turned on him twice before and there is always the chance that #3 is coming. Even during the video package before the match, Doi said it is what the fans expect. But they had a fair and square match and he is truly grateful. The two shook hands and hugged. Next up for them was the match with Big Ben in Korakuen Hall. A chance to pay them back for their betrayals and for their intrusion today. He caught sight of DK and Ishida at ringside but asked to be spared the usual banter. He wasn’t up for it. He was going to continue to defend the title and bring Dragon Gate to new heights, so he hopes the fans will come with him.
