K-ness. announced he was back. A lot has happened since he went on hiatus, but he is ready to come back and take a bite out of things.

Mochizuki offered a handshake to Minoura before their match, which was met with a hard slap to the face. After quickly dispatching of him, he asked why. Rookies usually try to get the jump on veterans before their matches but going right for the face like that made is feel personal. Minoura politely asked if he could enroll in Dojo Mochizuki. Mochizuki pressed for an answer to his question. Why did he slap him in the face? Minoura was super fired up about facing Mochizuki and potentially being allowed into the dojo. He knew that the kind hearted Mochizuki would be able to take pretty much anything he threw at him, so he hit him as hard as he could. Mochizuki said that he is not so kind hearted in those situations but he can see where Kota was coming from. As was stated when the dojo was established, anyone can come and go as they please. He could have joined without the slap. Minoura just then remembered those were in fact the rules. Mochizuki passed him one of the heavily praise, high selling Dojo Mochizuki shirts and told him to wear it while he was in their corner in the next match.

U-T boasted over getting another win over Dojo Mochizuki. Shun thought U-T would be coming for him today. He beat Hyo last month, now Yoshioka. He’s aiming low on the pecking order. If Shun wanted U-T to come for him, all he had to do was ask. He didn’t want to hear any excuses or complaints from the losing team. A team that is only getting chances because they have an old bastard pulling strings for them. He’s watched wrestlers younger than him take his spot. He struggled even after joining Tribe Vanguard. He broke his arm in half. He’s experienced rock bottom and even if all he has is the force of his own will, he will not lose to the likes of them and end up back at the bottom.
Mochizuki admitted that Shun & co were getting a lot of chances based on potential. If U-T has seen rock bottom, that is because of the difference in skill and talent. It hurts to hear it, but it is the truth. They should just settle this in the ring, 1 on 1. U-T was up for it, any time. He would finally beat him and rise up the ranks. Shun was also more than willing. After some prodding from Mochizuki, he asked for it to be at the December 4th Korakuen Hall show.
Yoshioka wondered what Shun meant with his comment earlier. Does he consider there to be a pecking order in the dojo? Shun backtracked and said he simply meant that it wasn’t his turn yet and he doesn’t think of them as ranked in any order. Mochizuki reminded them that they aren’t a unit so if they ever need to go at it, they should also do it. As for today, Yoshioka took the loss so he should focus on getting back at U-T.

Eita was very disappointed in the end result of Dragon Kids’ training. Was this the best he could do? He asked the man in the corny pink mask what he could learn from Dragon Kid. Nothing, that is what. Eita only learned one thing during his time with Dragon Kid. He became a fraud just like him. He learned that Dragon Kid is a fraud. If Dia wants to make it to the top of Dragon Gate, he should split away from that green midget now.

DK revealed that Dia used to be an apprentice to Eita. He congratulated him on his debut. He lost today, but that is just today. He hopes the fans will be kind but critical with him as he progresses.

Shimizu celebrated the big R・E・D win. Tribe Vanguard? They must only practice their stupid dance. They were Triangle Gate champions but were eliminated first. They should focus less on dancing and more on training. Then there was the weak and unpopular Tribe Vanguard & MaxiMuM. MaxiMuM will never be able to fill the giant gaping hole that Big! R! Shimizu! & Ben-K left when they quit. Especially not with that little green old timer and that punk Ishida. There are no units that can even try to compete with R・E・D.
PAC had something to say. R・E・D controls Dragon Gate and now he has a surprise for….Masato Yoshino. The next Dream Gate challenger will be none other than PAC.
Did PAC think Yoshino would refuse? Bring it. He polled the fans as to where the match should take place. The Tokyo faithful were in agreement. December 4th, in Korakuen Hall. PAC congratulated Yoshino on sealing his own fate. It was the beginning of the end for him.

Yoshino promised to use the Sol Naciente to make him tap out then turned his attention to more important(?) matters. December 4th was the first of two Korakuen Hall shows for the month and that makes it very important to Naruki Doi. Doi was confused. Does he mean the title match?? Yoshino told him that he knew very well what he was talking about. Doi said he vowed last year to not do this in Tokyo again this year. Everyone heard it. But the fans wanted it. Right? What did they want? Fine. If they want it, they will get it. After the Yoshino vs. PAC title match, it will be the 2018 edition of Doi Darts!

☆4th Defense by Yoshino

Natural Vibes tied the Triangle Gate defense record with their 5th defense. Backstage, they were confronted by Saito, Fujii, & Gamma. If Vibes were paying attention to the opener, they would understand why they were here. Gamma asked if they saw his gorgeous(?) Skytwister Press. They were in fact, not watching. Saito assumed they were terrified of the Mighty Sugamoto. Gamma said it was shameful that a bald guy was a champion. They challenged them to a Triangle Gate title match. After some arguing over the location (Fujii wanted to do it at Nippon Budokan, but that was unrealistic), the just agreed to the match in principle. The company later set the match for 11/18 in Nobeoka.

Eita attacked Kid after his match. Why is Eita being relegated to second on the card while DK is out here putting on these terrible performances? It’s a conspiracy and it’s all DK’s fault. Dk told him that it is no one’s fault but his own. Besides; regardless of whether it is the opener or the second match or the main event, Dragon Gate wrestlers give their all. Eita got annoyed and attacked again, going for his mask. Punch made the save. He complained about having his head constantly shaved to the point that Punch Tominaga no longer has a Punch Perm. To a masked wrestler, their mask is their life. To Punch Tominaga, the punch perm is his life. Anyone so willing to take the livelihoods away from people has no place in a wrestling ring. They argued. Eita told DK that their day of reckoning was going to come, very soon.
DK thanked PT for the assist and told him he didn’t look bad with a shaved head.

Yoshino & PAC had a long, but silent face off after the main event. He left with the rest of R・E・D.

Yoshino received cheers for his win, but he admitted that he also heard the voices of those who were pulling for Ben-K to win and open the door for the new generation. He’s been here since Toryumon. 18 years now. He has no plans on handing things over to the youngsters so easily. Doi feels the same. He knows that the Twin Gate champions do too. They are still the force that guides Dragon Gate and they won’t just pass the reigns over to the likes of Eita or Shimizu without a fight.
He was happy he won, but he was also very happy with what he saw in the Triangle Gate title match. Jason & Kaito had a fire lit under them. Jason has only been around for about a year, but it feels like he has been here many more. They didn’t win today, but he knows they will be champions sooner than later if they keep this pace.
This is the last show in Osaka for 2018. Toryumon Japan launched in 1999, so next year will be the 20th anniversary. He has many plans to give back to the fans for all their support over those 20 years, so he asked the fans to look forward to it. He thanked them for coming today and hoped they would stay with him and Dragon Gate as they dash towards 2019 and the anniversary.
