7. KING OF GATE 2016 Finals: YAMATO (24:15 Cross Armbreaker) Big R Shimizu
YAMATO & Shimizu had a face off at the top of the show. Shimizu repeated his statement from yesterday. He could take whatever YAMATO could throw at him, but YAMATO had no answer for the Shot-put Slam. Because of that, the 2016 KING OF GATE winner would be Big! R! Shimizu!
YAMATO said that there was more than just KING OF GATE at stake today. YAMATO is one of the leaders of the current generation. They were still a wall to the new generation that Shimizu is a part of. Shimizu wasn’t going to blow past him so easily. The wall would only get higher today, because YAMATO was going to win.
CIMA addressed Eita after match four. It has been over seven months since OVER GENERATION started, and Eita has shown great improvement. His showing in KING OF GATE was remarkable. Wins over CIMA & Susumu, and the draw with Tozawa. It was time for Eita to take another step forward. In months time, New Japan Pro Wrestling were hosting the Super J-Cup. When CIMA was Eitas’ age he made a big splash in the J-Cup. He thinks Eita will make a great DRAGON GATE representative. Eita was grateful for the opportunity. He would be proud to represent DG. His confidence grew considerably during KoG. His wins helped him realize just what he is capable of, and he promised to absolutely show the world in the J-Cup.
Doi taunted the fans & the Jimmyz after the win. The Jimmyz sure sounded like they were going to go for the Twin Gate yesterday. Here there are today losing like a bunch of losers. No way they could challenge for any titles. When you think of the Twin Gate, you think of Naruki Doi. He was going to regain HIS titles. The champions were officially on notice.
CIMA celebrated the back to back wins for the SuperCIMA-Super Human-Dragon Kid team. He wondered if this was the first time OVER GENERATION has won on consecutive days with the same team. Anyway. The team they beat today are the Triangle Gate champions. This seems like as good a place as any to challenge them to a title match. After some talk, Yoshino accepted.
YAMATO praised Shimizu after the finals. He couldn’t believe someone who was only 23 was so strong. YAMATO is 35. When he was 23 he was barely even a trainee. He was jealous of his youth. Shimizu, T-Hawk, Maria, Eita. They would be leading the path in the future. The current and new generation would bring DG to new heights.
Shimizu said this whole thing was like something out of a dream. To make it to the finals only three years into his career. To have a chance on such a big stage. He thanked YAMATO for today. However, next time they have a singles match the only result would be a Shot-put Slam and a 3 count won by Big! R! Shimizu!
After Shimizu left, YAMATO turned his attention to his next target. He wanted to be Dream Gate champion a 4th time. He called out Takagi. He was the KING OF GATE winner. That gives him dibs on the next title match. Takagi laughed it off. This joker who Takagi beat handily during league play wants a title shot? To have this guy, this weakling win KING OF GATE. The company should be ashamed. This is just the worst. In any case, his answer is “Fuck no”. Fans can boo all they want. That wasn’t going to change things. The Dream Gate champion is superior to the winner of some tournament. YAMATO pressed him further. Takagi admitted that he is getting restless. He hasn’t defended the title in a long time due to KING OF GATE. He is eager to destroy a new challenger. Fine. He can have his match. YAMATO began to respond but was given a Pumping Bomber. YAMATO lost his edge. The war is on. He should be ready at all times.
GM Yagi came out to set the match. The battle to decide whether the Dream Gate champion or the KING OF GATE winner was the strongest can only take place on one stage. The biggest one of the year. July 24th in Kobe World Kinen Hall. This match will be the main event. Takagi was pleased. Finally, he can put to rest this bullshit that has been going on since Aichi. Garbage ass YAMATO and his garbage ass friends and his garbage ass KING OF GATE trophy were going to be disposed of.
