CIMA spoke at the beginning of the show. He had someone he wanted to introduce. Many foreigners have come and gone over the years, but currently, there are no foreign performers competing regularly in DRAGON GATE. This fighter came all the way from Mexico just to have a tryout. His name is Ciclon Ramirez Jr. Today he will have a 5-minute exhibition with Eita.

Since this was his first time in Sambo Hall in nearly two years, Ichikawa was determined not to lose to Mochizuki today. He typically loses in a few seconds to him. However, today he has come up with a plan to counter the usual swift attack and HE will be the one that scores the instant pin. After being pinned in seconds, he begged for a rematch.

Kotoka accidentally hit Tanizaki with powder, causing his loss. They argued afterwards.

Maria came out alone for the semi-final. CIMA reminded her that this was a tag team match. She was Brave Gate champion and very strong, but she still needed a partner. Maria said she found the cutest, most stylish partner which with make a hot mess out of CIMA & her beloved Eita today. SHe introduced her new friend, Ryoko “Mammy” Saito!

YAMATO struck Takagi with the box in the closing stages, leading to him being pinned. Sorry wasn’t going to cut it this time. Takagi wondered if he wanted a fight. YAMATO insisted it was an accident. Takagi & Shimizu have similar ring costumes. An easy and totally understandable mistake. Doi calmed things down. However, in the end, it was Takagi that was pinned. The Dream Gate champion losing to the likes of Shimizu was also unacceptable. Kotoka noted that Tanizaki also lost today. Tanizaki flipped out since that was all Kotokas’ fault. Mondai Ryu tried to mediate but everyone pushed him down. Doi told Kotoka that he was almost out of patience with his negative impact on the Verserk power balance. He better prove himself soon, or there would be problems.

7. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (24:13 Pumping Bomber) Ryo “Jimmy” Saito
*1st Defense

The contract signing for the Dream Gate title match was held at the start of the show.
Saito spoke first, greeting the Wakayama fans. Since DG only comes to Wakayama once a year he was very happy to be fighting for the Dream Gate title today. He would put an end to Takagi. As payback for all his bad mouthing of the Jimmyz, and for all he has put the fans through recently. With the fans support and the spirit of the Jimmyz with him, he would surely win.
Takagi praised him for his sentiments. For the fans? For the Jimmyz? What a bunch of bullshit. He knows Saito has a lower back injury. It would be broken in half today. Saito was going to enter a world he didn’t belong in. A world where only the strong survive.

Kotoka accidentally hit Tanizaki while trying to interfere, allowing Maria to win. Tanizaki gave him a bodyslam for his trouble afterwards.

Takagi celebrated and boasted. What would Saito do now? Did his back hurt? Poor thing. He should go away. If he’s gone that means Kotoka can wrestle more. Everyone wins. He was disgusted by Saitos’ hair. He called Kotoka, who came to the ring with scissors. This is what happens to the weak in the new Dragon Gate. This is how things work. He cut Saitos’ hair.
Next, Takagi turned to YAMATO & Doi. Surely they would respect and praise him now. Doi told him to calm down. Sure, he won today. Cool. All due respect given. He brought the title back to Verserk like he promised, so everything is good on that front as far as Doi sees it. However, he is not pleased with Kotoka. With Kotoka around, their power balance is off. He can’t accept that. Takagi was confused. As long as he has the Dream Gate around his waist, the balance of power was fine. With the tension starting to boil, Doi, YAMATO, & Tanizaki left together. Mondai Ryu seemed like he wanted to do the same, but Takagi forced him to stay. Takagi & Kotoka were left in the ring for the official belt presentation ceremony.
The crowd was lukewarm as always. Takagi lamented the lack of reaction. This is reality. Shingo Takagi was the winner. Ryo Saito is a loser. The loss to Susumu only helped him regain his focus. No more half measures. The weak would be eaten. Only the strong survive.

The Jimmyz were left to salvage the ending of the show. Saito thanked the fans for coming. He apologized for losing, and the disgraceful haircutting scene. He brought up the DEAD or ALIVE cage match. The natural course of action was to challenge Takagi & Kotoka for that match. But he wasn’t going to do that. He’s been growing his hair out for two years. This was as good a time as any to cut it. He would return to his old short hair style now. Or maybe he would try something like what Horiguchi has…..
Horiguchi noted that he was all natural, no styling needed.
They ended things with a Jimmyz Train to send the Wakayama fans home happy.


03/20 GLORIOUS GATE

1. Takehiro Yamamura⭕, Kaito Ishida (11:28 Modified Fisherman Suplex Hold) Don Fujii, U-T❌

6. Jimmy Susumu, Ryo “Jimmy” Saito⭕, Jimmy Kanda (18:58 SaiRyo Rocket) Shingo Takagi, Naruki Doi❌, Cyber Kong

Fujii berated U-T for once again losing in his hometown to someone of lower rank.

Eita came out in the new Dragon Kid shirt that was released today. He once again pleaded with DK to be his mentor. DK was more interested in the t-shirt. Why was he wearing that? Eita said that when he saw it, he just HAD to buy one. DK noted that today was the first day they were available. Anyway. Stop with the mentor stuff. Give it up. They argued until PT called for some sanity. He reminded them that they had a very important match coming up together, where his very career was on the line. Maybe they should at least pretend to care about that…..

GM Takayuki Yagi appeared after intermission. The annual DEAD or ALIVE event from Aichi Prefectural Gym is on May 5th. As is now the annual tradition, there will be a steel cage match there. The specific rules and details are still under consideration, but he is now openly accepting participants. Anyone who wants to settle a grudge is welcome to come to him. He warned them that there will be risks, so they should think long and carefully before doing so.

YAMATO celebrated. He said he didn’t feel all that great earlier today, but when he got in the ring he sprang back to life. T-Hawk took his Twin Gate title, so YAMATO was going to take something from him. Tomorrow in Wakayama, Verserk would take the Triangle Gate.

Kotoka accidentally hit Doi with powder, causing the main event loss. Doi shoved him to the ground after the match. What did he think he was doing? Because of him, the team he was at ringside to support lost. Because of him, Doi came all the way to Nagoya to get beaten. They have a Triangle Gate title match tomorrow. He told him to get his shit together. He briefly mentioned the cage match. He wasn’t sure if anyone from Verserk would be in it. Right now that doesn’t matter. The focus is tomorrow and the Triangle Gate. All of Verserk but Takagi left. Saito confronted him.
They also had a title match tomorrow. He won today, and he will win tomorrow. That is a promise. He won’t forgive, and he won’t forget all of the trash talking Takagi did towards the Jimmyz. He was there to see the fans carry Susumu to a title win in Hakata. He would have that spirit with him, along with the spirit of all Jimmyz members.
Takagi wasn’t moved by his speech. He just got his title back and he had no intention of losing it again. Saito would be destroyed tomorrow, and Shingo Takagi will stand tall as Dream Gate champion.

For the first time in a year, the hometown superstar, the problem child of the Kimata Family, the great Mondairyu has come back to Toki. Just like last year, Weekly Pro Wrestling magazine are in the building to cover the show. The people better damn well make him look good. He told them to all go to the merchandise stand and buy his new t-shirt so they can be photographed wearing it. He wants a sea of red shirts for the main event.

After his big main event win, he proclaimed it a great victory for Daisuke Kimata, prompting a large “Kimata” chant. More fans came this year than last, so this was his biggest homecoming to date. Their show here next year will be his 10-year anniversary show. He hopes there are enough chairs in the city for how many fans he expects to come. The fans shouted with joy at the idea of such a celebration. He thanked them for coming. Both Mondairyu and Verserk will grace them with their presence next year.

Takagi & Saito argued in advance of their title match in Wakayama. Saito tried to trade lariats with Takagi during the main event. Takagi mocked him for his pitiful attempts. Does he really think that will suffice in their match? He better come up with something else, because Takagi will be able to take as many as he can throw without feeling a thing. Saito told him that all this shit talking of the Jimmyz will come to an end in Wakayama. If Takagi won’t stop running his mouth, Saito will permanently close it for him. He is carrying the memory of Susumus’ struggles with him into battle. He can’t let Takagi win. He may be the first 4 time champion but he will also soon become the only champion to have zero defenses twice. Weekly Pro reporters are here today. Saito already has the headline for the Wakayama results written for them. “Shingo Takagi, Another Zero Defense Abomination”.

After the show was over, Tanizaki attacked Maria during the post-show clean-up. She didn’t have the title belt with her today. He was already aghast at the image of her as champion. Now she has the audacity to not even wear her belt. It’s a disgrace. Her belt and her balls were going to be taken.
Maria swore revenge at Wakayama after she recovered from the attack.

6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (29:00 Pumping Bomber) Jimmy Susumu
*Susumu fails in his 1st defense, Takagi becomes the 24th Champion

The Dream Gate contract signing was held at the start. Takagi thanked Susumu for taking good care of the title the last three weeks. He would he taking it back now. He promised no interference from Doi or YAMATO or Mondai Ryu. He would become a four time champion on his own. Susumu thanked the fans for coming out in large numbers today. He knew none of them were here to see Takagi win, so he wouldn’t let it happen.

Tanizaki attcked Maria after her match, but relented. She was kinda cute with the title. It suits her. He asked for a fair fight in Wakayama. Maria fell for it and was attacked and mocked agin. She looked like an ugly elderly woman that runs a transvestite bar. Her belt and her testicles should she possess them would he gone after MEMORIAL GATE.
Maria told him that it would be HIS nuts that would be taken.

As promised, Takagi won totally on his own. That should put any of this recent Verserk unrest to bed. Surely the other members had nothing but respect for him now. Doi said that was fair enough, especially since he and YAMATO lost. All members shook Takagis’ hand. Except YAMATO. Takagi got angry and ran down Susumu & the Jimmyz for making no successful title defenses and being garbage. He demanded a handshake from YAMATO. YAMATO eventually accepted. At this point Saito attacked Takagi! Who was he calling garbage? The garbage one was him. Susumu was now a 0 defense champion, that is true. Saito himself was also in that unfortuate club. However there was a 3rd member. This big dumbass he was talking to now. Maybe they should have a title match to decide who the stronger 0 defense champion is?
The match was set for Wakayama.

Susumu closed out the show thanking the fans for their support in his quest to become champion. It was brief. But he will dream again someday.

The show opened with a moment of silence for Hayabusa. Hayabusa was very close to many in the company, from past relationships borne in FMW, to his work with Dragon Gate Records. His song Curtain Call is played at the end of every show. He was the closest with Dragon Kid, who gave an emotional speech.
They met 22 years ago, when DK was only 18 years old. Hayabusa was the ace of FMW by then. He was the type of wrestler DK aspired to be. He was a mentor, but he was more like a brother. Hayabusa loves to drink and he was the one who taught DK how to party. He always showed concern when DK was injured doing precarious moves. He warned him and cared for him. He struggled everyday to recover from his terrible injury. He finally was able to stand in the ring again. They made many memories together. They sang duets live together. But there will be no new memories. He began to cry here. He is not sure whay tomorrow holds. However, Hayabusa would want him to stay postive and continue pushing pro wrestling forward. He dreamed of standing with Hayabusa together in the ring some day. Unfortunately that now can’t happen but all the DG wrestlers & staff will carry his spirit with them forever. Thank you, Eiji Ezaki. Rest in peace.
He closed with Hayabusas’ favorite phrase. The fun has only just begun. Hayabusas’ FIGHT WITH DREAM entrance music played to end the memorial.

Eita did his usual begging to DK to he his life coach. CIMA mediated. Since those two will be teaming in Korakuen to protect PTs’ career they should probably get some practice in. He suggest the teams change to DK & Eita vs. himself & Kzy.

A framed picture of Hayabusa was given a ringside seat to see DK use his trademark Firebird Splash as a tribute. He exited to FIGHT WITH DREAM.

Maria celebrated her first ever singles title win. She thanked the fans for cheering her to victory. She told her parents that she did it, but they weren’t there to see it. They were still against her being a wrestler and have never come to see a match. She hoped now that she was a champion they would consider it.
While thanking the fans again, Tanizaki attacked.
He mocked her parents. He was going to be her first challenger and put an end to this embarrassment. The ugly tranny would not be champion for long.
Maria was enraged and the shots at her parents. The challenge was accepted, and set for 03/21 at MEMORIAL GATE in Wakayama.

Takagi addressed Susumu. He reiterated that there would be no help from his seconds tomorrow. He would fight him straight up and beat him. He’s had to deal with the shame of losing in Hakata for three weeks. All that frustration would be unleashed on Susumu. He is 23rd champion in name only. In reality he is just keeping the belt warm. That ends tomorrow, and once again only the strong will survive.

Verserk attacked after the main event. They put forth YAMATO, Doi, & Kotoka as the next Triangle Gate challengers. Tozawa warned Doi that that was essentially a handicap match for him & YAMATO. Kotoka quickly noted he only lost today because he wanted to challenge for the Triangle. He was permanent honourary Brave Gate champion anyway! The match was set for Wakayama.

The Sumoz & MONSTER EXPRESS closed out the show with am extra large Jimmyz train.

OVER GENERATION opened up the show. CIMA talked about the recent lower back issues he & Gamma have had. However! They were here in Korakuen. Unlike Punch Tominaga. PT was out with the flu, which is serious. It is good reason to miss a show. But the rest of OG were informed of this when they saw it posted on the DG website. He didn’t bother to tell them directly. Poor form, PT. In any case, this leaves Eita without a partner for his match. It was decided that either Yamamura or Ishida would pull double duty. CIMA would have a quiz, and the winner gets the spot. His first question was who was the first idol he ever saw live in concert. Despite several hints and saying 90% of her name, they could not guess Ranran Suzuki. They also couldn’t answer the more contemporary idol related follow up question, once again showing the gap between the Old Generation and the Young Generation. In the end, Yamamura won a Rock Paper Scissors contest to be Eitas’ partner.

Eita once again pleaded with DK to be his teacher. DK was annoyed at the timing. This was before the match, and he was still tied up in streamers. What kind of person is Eita? They argued over the matter for awhile, with Eita and the fans trying to pressure him into saying yes. Eventually, he demanded the match start.

Verserk invaded afterwards. Kotoka & Doi mocked PT for not being there. He didn’t even bother to update his blog to apologize for not showing up. OVER GENERATION is basically the same without him so he may as well retire. That gave Doi a great idea for the next Korakuen Hall show. The “If Punch Tominaga Loses He Has to Immediately Retire Special”. It will be a 6 Man Tag. For Verserk, it would be himself & Kotoka & …..The crowd goaded him into picking Problem Dragon. Since that was essentially making it a handicap match, OVER GENERATION was not allowed to put CIMA or Gamma into the match. Eita & PT were the first two. DK nominated himself to be the third. He told Eita that this was the sense of timing he had told him about. More bickering over the teacher/pupil thing ensued before OG left. Verserk turned their attention to their semi-final & main event matches. Doi called out MONSTER EXPRESS, Kzy, & YASSHI.

Doi mocked the Italian Connection alumni reunion. Yoshino shot back that if this was a reunion party Doi should find his white pants and baseball bat for the match.
“brother” YASSHI? The Italian Connection? Second Doi? YAMATO had no idea what any of these things were. He did some internet research on this YASSHI guy. He was supposed to be this experienced veteran, yet he was the same age as YAMATO. He was coming back to face the strongest Twin Gate champion team in history. He better be prepared.
YAMATO then introduced the very strong but former Dream Gate champion Shingo Takagi, which caused some infighting within Verserk. Takagi ran down Shachihoko BOY as usual in advance of the main event.

Susumu greeted the fans as Dream Gate champion. However, not all things were good. Mochizuki lost his unit last month. Susumu asked him how he was holding up. Mochizuki didn’t really have much to say about that, but he did feel pretty nostalgic after this match between the four. Maybe they should team up next month? Mochizuki called out anybody who dared to face them. No one answered. Saito poked fun at him. Mochizuki said since they were original 4 members of M2K he was expecting Crazy MAX or Do FIXER to answer the challenge. In the end, they decided to team together and seek out suitable opponents.

YASSHI ran wild with the red box at the end of the match, striking YAMATO & Doi, and eventually the referee. Doi was furious with Yoshino for bringing this guy to DG. What the hell was wrong with him? The Twin Gate champions left.
Yoshino asked him why he ruined his return to DG after 11 years with a disqualification loss. YASSHI asked him what he was expecting? He was “brother” YASSHI and this was his style. The same “brother” YASSHI that was fired from this very company 11 years ago for behavioural problems and neglect of duty. He wasn’t going to change who he was just because he was in DG. He will always be himself, no matter where he goes. He left. Yoshino was at a loss but promised the fans he would persuade YASSHI to come around.

The original M2K quartet hit the ring immediately after the main ended. They were in a particularly happy mood and provoking Verserk. YAMATO was flabbergasted and confused. The match was barely over and they were all up in their faces. What did these strange old men want? Mochizuki said that he wanted them to be their opponents. YAMATO was totally lost. Opponents for who? For what? What the hell is going on? Mochizuki tried to explain the situation but YAMATO wasn’t following. In the end, the match was made but YAMATO told Mochizuki that if Verserk win then he would have to properly and clearly explain why the match had happened. Verserk left.

Saito brought up that while they used to be M2K together, three members of the team were Jimmyz. So for one night only, perhaps Mochizuki should become one. After thinking for all of 10 seconds about it, he christened him Jimmy Masaaki. Saito brought up Don Fujii acting as Jimmyz Train conductor last year. Mochizuki would have to find something similar. Mochizuki said he would be the driver, but Saito arbitrarily decided he would be the person who sells snacks on the train.

Now that all this was settled, Tozawa blew up at them for coming out after a match that had nothing to do with them. Yoshino noted there was still something important left to be settled. Kzy promised to answer the invitation from MONSTER EXPRESS today. Kzy said that he was glad to been offered the spot but he had to decline. There are several things he would like to do before finding a unit that he can only do while unaffiliated. For example, he hasn’t teamed with CIMA or Stalker Ichikawa much in the past.

Yoshino was stunned. After the great way in which things ended last month, what a crummy end this was. brother shock, now Kzy shock. He didn;t have the will to talk anymore. Tozawa gave him a tight embrace and consoled him. This is pro wrestling. Sometimes good things happen. A lot of times bad things happen. That was DRAGON GATE.
