Shisa made his first appearance in Korakuen Hall since 2015. Saito informed him of this fact and the always level headed Shisa simply replied “I guess so.”
After U-T vs. SSW, Mochizuki told Shun that while the fan reaction was incredibly positive, if there had been a decision after the draw he thinks SSW would have lost. How he decides to handle that is up to him. As for U-T, he isn’t the biggest fighter but he showed today how effort and sheer will can even the odds.
Yoshioka interrupted. Last month, Mochizuki told SSW this was a match he couldn’t afford to lose. At the same time, SSW had said that he was ranked higher than him. Today, he got a win over Ishida. That wasn’t enough for him. He also wanted to see just who was the best amongst himself, U-T, and SSW. Mochizuki Dojo isn’t a unit, so SSW was more than happy to fight to figure it out. He was upset at the idea of someone thinking they were better than him just because they got a win over Kaito Ishida. This brought a very angry Ishida to the ring. Yoshioka was talking a lot of garbage after a fluke win. He didn’t want to hear any of this big talk from a bunch of guys who aren’t even unit members. He is a distinguished member of MaxiMuM. He has no respect for U-T, either. He hates people who always talk about how hard they are trying. You are a wrestler. It’s what you are supposed to do. U-T said that he hates anyone who can’t do anything but kick. He could easily catch any of his kicks, turn it into a llave and make him tap. Mochizuki wondered if U-T was also talking to him with that comment, but U-T confirmed it was directed at Ishida.
Watanabe jumped in here. Yoshioka was below him in terms of career but he didn’t mention his name at all when he was issuing challenges. He wasn’t going to stand by and be considered the lowest. He tried to fire up Minoura and get him to respond the same way, but Minoura said he just debuted and wasn’t really worried about that sort of thing yet.
A brawl broke out until GM Yagi broke things up. Using career to decide rank is pointless. He knows a much better way to settle things. He will prepare a league for them in the early part of 2019. He expects them to train hard over the New Year holidays.
Kid told Eita that today was just another example of the difference in skill between them. Eita agreed. It was abundantly clear he was better. No one is going to come to Fukuoka to see him lose his hair. They are coming to see Dragon Kid lose his mask. He has some secret measures in place that will make sure of it. DK told him he can do whatever he wants. The results would be the same as today. DK would keep his mask and Eita would lose his mop.
Kazma is only around once a month so he didn’t know their names, but it looks like those guys he just beat have some sort of trios titles. He was challenging them on behalf of himself, Kanda, & Yoshida. Kzy told him he should at least try to remember the names of his opponents. Whether he can take the titles to one of his other jobs is up to the company to decide, but whether he gets to fight for the titles is up to Kzy. His team is the most prolific Triangle Gate team in history and have made it a hobby to take out anyone that has the guts to step up. They accept.
GM Yagi came in and made the match for The Final Gate on 12/23, but Kazma protested. He’s a very busy man and he doesn’t know if he has to work somewhere else that day. He can’t just agree like this. Yagi said that he understands and sympathizes with his situation so they can just cancel the whole thing. Kazma quickly remembered he was free that day. Taking the titles from Kzy will be easy. Kzy promised it would be nothing but good vibes in Fukuoka and that their defense record was going to continue.
PAC attacked Yoshino during the God Save the Queen, to the shock of the fans. After his win, he reminded everyone that he has been saying that R・E・D controls Dragon Gate. Now that he controls the Dream Gate, maybe people will start paying attention. Eita told Yoshino that he lost today for two very simple and clear reasons. 1 – PAC is unbeatable. 2 – Because he is in a unit with Dragon Kid! MaxiMuM is finished. The show is over. R・E・D was ready to leave so they could hit their music.
Doi was fine with playing their music so they could leave, but the show wasn’t over. There were two main events today and it was time for Doi Darts 2018!
The match that was selected to main event the 12/18 Korakuen Hall show is:
Dragon Kid, K-ness., Ben-K, Kazma Sakamoto, KAI vs. BxB Hulk, “brother” YASSHI, Yuki Yoshioka, Naruki Doi, Dragon Dia.
GM Yagi also revealed that there would be a major announcement made at the 12/18 Korakuen Hall show.
