OVER GENERATION opened the show with a New Year’s greeting. CIMA was greatly troubled by the news of the break-up of the legendary idol group SMAP that broke this morning. He felt old because Yamamura & Ishida were too young to remember when the group had six members. He & Gamma talked about the popular idols from their youth. He gave the honor of finding the child for the First Gong Kids to PT. He warned him that if he messed it up he would have to sing the SMAP song Sekai ni Hitotsu ake no Hana in front of everyone. Although he held the microphone to close to his mouth at first, he was able to do so without any errors.

Ichikawa went into his usual rematch pleading spiel. This was the first Korakuen of 2016, it can’t be over so quickly. He was cut off by Tozawa who said that Ichikawa knew damn well that no one in the hall thought the match was really over. The match was re-started.

Takagi & VERZERK took over the ring after the main event. Playtime was over. Takagi mocked Tozawa for his recent lack of importance. MONSTER EXPRESS? Team Best Friends? Fun pro wrestling? What a joke. Their time was up. Doi agreed. ME was built with foreigners at the center. With Uhaa & Ricochet not around anymore there just wasn’t anything monstrous about these clowns. And while on the topic of worthless units, there was Dia HEARTS. Both groups should just hurry up and disappear. By now, it was patently obvious what he was proposing. With the SMAP news this morning, the world was abuzz with talk of groups splitting up. ME & DH should have a unit disbands match.
Mochizuki declined. There was no particular grudge with ME. Besides, DH had to remain alive so Hulk has a place to come back to. Doi called BS on that excuse. Hulk should know better than anyone that time waits for no man in the DG ring.
T-Hawk said that since joining ME, he was finally enjoying pro wrestling again. He wasn’t ready to give that up. Why would they agree to have a unit disbands match so easily?
Shimizu, the 2016 Dia HEARTS spokesman, was quick to jump at the challenge. He would gladly do the match. T-Hawk said that was the voice of inexperience. He has never been in a unit disbands match so he can’t possibly understand how serious it is. He should take back what he said and decline the match.
Doi continued to press the issue, and preyed on Shachihoko BOYs’ insecurities. He called him baggage and said any unit with a guy like him is doomed to disband. Shachi snatched the microphone from him. He was holding the other members back. He really was baggage. But he wanted to prove himself. He asked the other members to fight with him. Tozawa got emotional. Shachi wasn’t baggage. He wasn’t holding anyone back. Without Shachi there is no MONSTER EXPRESS. It is either 4 members or no members. Everyone agreed to fight.
GM Yagi set the match. It will take place at the February Korakuen Hall show. It will be a 4 on 4 elimination match. Due to the serious nature of the stipulations, the match will take place under full conclusion rules. There will be no over the top rope eliminations. Pinfall or submissions only. Doi couldn’t contain his glee as VERZERK left ME to close the show.

Mochizuki was impressed by Shachi, and understood how he felt. However, don’t mistake that understanding for sympathy. Dia HEARTS had to be there for Hulk when he came back. They were going to win 4-0.

Yoshino hates those type of situations. Dark, gloomy. No fun. However, Shachi proved his manhood here today. They promised to protect MONSTER EXPRESS, and stand tall together again at the end of the next Korakuen.

Mochizuki once again berated U-T for his lack of success. Perhaps he needed to lose to someone like Yamamura to light a fire under him. U-T said that losing to someone so early in their career really sucks. He has no unit, he keeps losing. He promised to turn things around and be a new wrestler in 2016.

Saito lost his temper after the main event, giving Kotoka the Double Cross and hitting him with a chair. Horiguchi calmed him down. VERZERK may have won against ME & DH, but the winners today were the Jimmyz. Sure, it was by a flash pin. A certain Dream Gate champion will probably bitch like a little girl about it just being a flash pin later. A win is a win. Takagi called them lukewarm at best yesterday. The 2016 Jimmyz will burn with the heat of a volcano. Saito called Kotoka a punk ass paper champion. An annoying little shit. He & Horiguchi wanted a Twin Gate title match. No excuses. Just accept. Horiguchi said that “No” was not an acceptable answer. The location would be close to Kobe. Next week in Osaka. The first title win of the year will be by the Jimmyz.
YAMATO said everything today was an accident. His shoulders accidentally were on the mat. They were accidentally still there when the three count happened. There would be no accidents next week in Osaka.

Takagi and Susumu had a back and forth. The champion carries the load. If he loses, he loses everything. The challenger has nothing to lose. In this case, Susumu did have a lot at risk. His head. Takagi was coming for it. Was he ready? Susumu vowed to show him how ready he was. He has tried and tried to once again be Dream Gate champion. He would show his resolve through his actions. By taking the title.

6. Champions of VERZERK vs. Dia.HEARTS: Shingo Takagi, Naruki Doi⭕, YAMATO, Kotoka (18:24 Bakatare Sliding Kick) Masaaki Mochizuki, Dragon Kid, Kzy❌, Big R Shimizu

Doi demanded applause for their win. It was just as they promised. A total VERZERK victory. Dia HEARTS without Hulk were no kind of threat to anything. Yesterday it was MONSTER EXPRESS. Today it was Dia HEARTS. Tomorrow it would be the Jimmyz. He hoped they were watching, because this was a preview of their match. The Jimmyz were no longer needed in DG. This brought the Jimmyz out, but they took their time in doing so. Doi yelled at them for being so slow. They didn’t really need to be out here anyway. Tomorrow in Kobe they were going to lose. Saito asked the Kyoto fans to cheer for them tomorrow. Doi called him an idiot for saying that here, since the match wasn’t in Kyoto. They bantered for awhile until Saito put an end to the jokes. He passed to Susumu. He confronted Takagi. They haven’t had a match in a long time. In fact, their title match will be their first meeting since their series of matches in England. The last time he challenged Takagi for the title in 2008, he lost. The result this time would be very, very different.
Takagi was looking forward to finding out whether the Jumbo no Kachi! or the Pumping Bomber was superior. He was also looking forward to putting an end to the lukewarm Jimmyz. Beating Susumu will be the first step on the road to their demise.
Horiguchi said that as long as DRAGON GATE existed, the Jimmyz would exist.

The non-VERZERK portion of the roster came to the ring for a New Year’s greeting. Susumu was selected to do the honours. He wished everyone a happy new year and thanked them for coming out in large numbers to the first show of the 2016 season. All the staff & wrestlers intended to make this year even more exciting than the last one, and asked everyone to come along for the ride.

Gamma & Yamamura celebrated the big upset over CIMA. This is exactly the kind of result OVER GENERATION was formed for. Yamamura said that he was planning on a big year. Not just for him, but for the entire unit.
CIMA lamented. After his loss in Fukuoka, he spent some time contemplating what kind of year 2016 would be for him. This was a wake-up call. He lost to Gamma all the time, but to lose to someone so early in their career was a bit shocking. But he accepted the loss. He asked the fans to support and enjoy OVER GENERATION in 2016.

Susumu spoke again after his win. He already said a lot in the opening greeting, but he neglected to mention something important. His title match on 02/14 in Hakata. He has challenged for the Dream Gate many times since his reign in 2006. He has failed in all of them. He watched Fujii, Mochizuki, and CIMA fall to Takagi. It made him think about his place as someone who has been around since the beginning of the company. The meaning isn’t lost on him. He will take the title from Takagi because he HAS to. He promised to have the title belt around his waist when they come back to Kyoto next month.

VERZERK quickly swarmed Shachi at the start of the match, allowing Takagi to put him away in a mere 3 minutes. Doi celebrated to a chorus of boos. Why were they booing? It was a fair & square, clean pin. Was it Stalker Ichikawa under that mask? Did Shachi still think he was on his New Year break? Doesn’t he understand this is the main event? The show is now over this early because of him.
Tozawa pleaded with them. This really sucks. They were totally right. He berated Shachi, trying to fire him up. He asked VERZERK for a restart.
Wow. Begging for restarts. They really were Stalker Ichikawa level. Doi wondered what Shachi was feeling, having to have his teammates stoop to such levels to cover for his failures. They can have their restart. It doesn’t matter how many matches they have. The result will be the same. Go ahead and ring the bell.

After winning again, Doi continued his taunts. After losing two times in one night on the first show, MONSTER EXPRESS should be eliminated completely from the unit battlefield for 2016. The Jimmyz & Dia HEARTS too. After getting swept in the Fukuoka title matches OVER GENERATION shouldn’t even in contention to begin with. VERZERK would assert their dominance by taking all three main event matches in this series.

Dia HEARTS came out. Shimizu told VERZERK they were successful in 2015, but that would all change in 2016. DH would go on the attack this year, and their first target is VERZERK in the main event tomorrow. That would put a stop to all of this. Mochizuki added that Shimizu would be getting more time as the DH spokesman this year.

YAMATO closed out the show, telling the fans to look forward to VERZERK being the coolest and sexiest unit again this year.
