Mochizuki talked about losing the Dream Gate to Yoshino and how it has left him with pretty much nothing. He’s not in a unit, but none of the existing ones are a good fit. Even though he said that he will still want to fight for the Dream Gate in his 50s and 60s, he probably won’t get another chance for some time. He wants to use that time to train the new generation. That brings him to Shun Skywalker. He’s become a standout player this year. In August, they will be teaming together in the All Japan Pro Wrestling Junior Tag League. He’d like to team with him not just for that, but here in Dragon Gate with the eventual goal of the Twin Gate. If Shun is up for the challenge. He is a tough teacher and partner and won’t take it easy on him. Shun wanted to fight alongside him. As for this All Japan tag league, he isn’t just going for the experience. He’s planning to Skywalk all the way to winning the whole thing. Mochizuki was mainly amused at his confidence. They are very different, but he feels they compliment each other well and can accomplish big things.

Over Generation and Antias got involved in the third match and forced the no contest. Eita blamed it on them. DK pointed out that Antias interfered first and Kaito was just evening the odds. Eita had no recollection of the event in question. Maybe he interfered, once. Ishida interfered twice, though! DK had no interest in arguing with a toddler. He told Eita that he would take him out before they even get to the Brave Gate match.

Rookie(?) Ryo Saito celebrated his first(??) win in Kyoto. This was an important match on the way to the Triangular Door Waist Strap (Triangle Gate title) match. Today he downed a member of the champion team with his brand new original finisher, the Backslide! Horiguchi was furious. Saito said his Backslide wasn’t quite perfected yet but it will be in time for the title match. He vowed to defeat Mr. Susumu, Mr. Horiguchi, and Mr. Sawada and win the championships. Mr. Sawada was totally confused at the state of things. He understands that Saito & Fujii aren’t a combo to be taken lightly. However, Natural Vibes are the champions and they won’t go down so easily.

Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Tatsumi Fujinami, and his son Leona were announced for Kobe Pro Wrestling Festival.

DK told Eita that even though it was a count out win, it was still a win. Antias got a taste of their own medicine today. Eita was furious. Whatever. This match in front of these hicks means absolutely nothing. Next time they are here he will be Brave Gate champion and Shingo will be Dream Gate champion. Even better than that is, Over Generation won’t be back here at all. They will be put out of their misery in Korakuen Hall on 7/5. It will be the end of that stupid Gong Kids nonsense, too. DK told him he was talking a lot of trash for someone who lost today. Antias were going to be disbanded, then Eita was going to see just how out of reach the Brave Gate is. Over Generation were far from finished and neither was Gong Kids. He was looking forward to coming back here and seeing the happy kids raise their hands up high.

Doi accidentally hit Shimizu with the Bakatare Sliding Kick, setting up the win by YAMATO.
YAMATO didn’t win King of Gate, but that isn’t the end of Tribe Vanguard. The younger generation has been making big waves lately. He wasn’t just going to stand back and watch. Along with Hulk, he challenged Big Ben to a Twin Gate title match. Shimizu was more than happy to accept. He’s not sure why he lost today. Maybe he got hit by some guy by accident. YAMATO told him he knew exactly who that guy was. YAMATO told him he should watch his mouth or he may get himself into more trouble than he is looking for. The Twin Gate match was made official for World on 7/22. With that out of the way, Shimizu had some questions for Doi. What’s up?? Maybe he should like, apologize or something?? Doi apologized for the mistake today but told him that he should get his priorities in order. Shimizu: “Huh?”. He pressed further for an apology. Doi told him to watch the way he talks. “Huh?” Doi was flabbergasted. He’s an 18 year veteran, he doesn’t need to apologize to someone who has only been around 5 years. As a veteran he was reading the situation. For the sake of the fans in attendance and those watching live on the Dragon Gate Network, he was going to say sorry. Shimizu told him to be more careful in the future. Doi was reaching his limit. Why was he being so difficult and rude? He’s getting carried away with all this. Shimizu made a dismissive sound but said he didn’t realize it when called out on it. This was too far for Ben who told him to apologize to Doi for it. Since Ben told him to, he apologized for his involuntary actions. Sorry~! Doi just wanted out of the ring now so he wished him luck at World and said they could continue this in the dressing room if needed. YAMATO once again warned Shimizu that his mouth may get him into trouble if he isn’t more careful. Tribe Vanguard was finally able to receive their winners prize after a long time.
