YAMATO (44:29)
*5th Defense for YAMATO

After match 2, the steel cage entrants had an interview segment. Cyber Kong said he was the only one on that stage to never be Dream Gate champion. That ends today. Takagi said it has been nearly 9 months since he lost the title to YAMATO. He’s bored. Nothing has changed in those 9 months. Where is this supposed Golden Age of Dragon Gate that YAMATO proclaimed to bring? He is a liar and a fraud. His time is up. Takagi has no choice but take the title back and steer the course his own way. Hulk apologized to YAMATO. He feels bad, but he wants to win, even if that means YAMATO ends up bald and beltless. Doi received a big reaction. He was back in Nagoya as Naruki Doi of MaxiMuM. He was going to stave off the interference from the others, and defeat YAMATO to secure a happy ending for everyone. YAMATO thanked the fans for filling the arena to capacity again this year. He survived last year, and will do so again this year. The Golden Age starts today.

Yamamura refused a handshake from Kagetora. Kage was really impressed with him. He was doing things 18 months in his career that Kagetora wasn’t even thinking about at the same experience level. He is looking forward to watching him grow into a fearsome opponent. He was planning on still being Brave Gate champion when that happens, so he is welcome to challenge again.

MaxiMuM and the Jimmyz argued after their match. Saito questioned Yoshinos’ choice in teammates. What did he think he could accomplish with partners like Kotoka and greenhorns like Ben-K? Yoshino took exception, but took more exception with his own teammates reaction. Why weren’t they more upset? Why weren’t they fighting back? Yoshino said he had his first target for the group. The Jimmyz. Horiguchi told them to bring it on. Their ragtag unit was no match for the Jimmyz and their 6 years together.

YAMATO survived extensive interference to retrieve the belt, leaving Cyber Kong as the loser. As per the rules, he had to remove his mask, reveal his real name and age. HE refused. The cage was built higher than he expected. Who could climb that thing? He offered up Tominagas’ hair as a substitute sacrifice. YAMATO was having none of that. Kong eventually relented. He went to remove it himself, but YAMATO stopped him. Several years ago, he was the loser of a cage match. He sat down in the chair like a man and let Cyber Kong cut his hair. Today, Kong should be a pro and do the same. Kong sat while YAMATO removed his mask. Kong also disputed the rules about his name and age. After further pressing he revealed himself as Takashi Yoshida, age 34 from Osaka Prefecture. This wasn’t the end. He’s lost everything now, so he has nothing left to fear. Verserk were going to continue to wreak havoc. Verserk left.
YAMATO said that the wrestler known as Cyber Kong is now gone. He urged Yoshida to consider his new ringname.

YAMATO thanked the fans for giving him the power to survive. He was battered and bruised, but was still champion. He thanked them for coming all the way to Aichi or watching on TV. King of Gate starts on Tuesday. He plans on winning again. He also planned on being still being champion at Dead or Alive 2018. He thanked Maria, Kzy, Flamita, & Hulk for their assistance today. Today, as always, wasn’t he just the coolest?

7. Road to Dead or Alive Challengers vs. Challengers: Naruki Doi⭕, BxB Hulk (21:53 Bakatare Sliding Kick) Shingo Takagi❌, Cyber Kong

Kagetora was ready to make his first Brave Gate title defense. Since Yamamura now has two wins over him, he was challenging him. Yamamura was hesitant but eventually accepted. He told Kagetora that even though he has finally become champion after 10 tries, his reign would end with 0 defenses. They agreed to have the match at Dead or Alive. Kagetora went for a handshake but Yamamura refused. Their fight has already begun. Yamamura vowed to take he title.

Tominaga interfered heavily in the late stages of match four. Afterwards he ran down Shimizu & Ben-K. No one wanted to see them wrestle. They wanted to see Punch. He called out anyone. This brought out Masato Yoshino, in full ring gear. If Punch wanted a fight, Maybe he would get one. Even though he announced he was coming back, he never said when. Well. He was here and dressed to wrestle. This was as good a time as any. Punch told him he was going to send him back to the hospital. The match was hastily started.
After making short work of Punch, Yoshino talked about he decided to show up here today. He has been through three months of hell. Even though this was more of warm up than a real comeback, he had made it a goal to be able to wrestle here today in Hakata. He addressed Shimizu & Ben-K. They are Triangle Gate champions with Doi, who was not out here right now. He was surely watching, though. They understand each other better than anyone, after all. Shimizu confirmed that Doi was in fact very fond of Yoshino. Yoshino told the fans to enjoy the rest of the show, cheer for Doi in he main event, and to look forward to seeing Masato Yoshino after he make sure his full comeback. After the main event, he shared some banter with Doi. DoiYoshi, along with Shimizu & Ben-K reaffirmed their intentions of starting a new unit together.

Lindaman & T-Hawk attacked after the semifinal. They had already announced their intentions of coming for the Twin Gate. Now that these two broken down pieces of trash were out of the way, CK-1 was being put on notice. Their reign would come to an end in Aichi. CIMA noted that they’ve made three title defenses here in Hakata. This is a special place for CK-1, so coming back here in June without the titles was simply not an option.

T-Hawk challenged the winner of the 4/23 Twin Gate match to defend against himself & El Lindaman at Dead or Alive.

Mochizuki had some harsh words for Shimizu & Ben-K. They were being carried by Doi right now, and if they don’t step their game up they won’t be Triangle Gate champions for very long. He told them to get their act together.

More friendly fire happened between Takagi and Kong, costing Verserk another match. They argued over whether it was an accident. Takagi had an idea. Doi was injured and cursed by the Triangle Gate. They should just gang up on him and make sure he ends up losing his hair. Kong was intrigued, but he wanted the Dream Gate title. What was more important to him? His mask or the title? He needed to think about that.
Hulk was not intrigued. He wants to see Takagi bald. But. He also wants to be Dream Gate champion even if it would leave YAMATO without his hair.
What they all did agree on was no one knows what will happen inside that cage, but they were all prepared to face the challenge.

Due to the lower back injury he suffered over the weekend, Naruki Doi was pulled from the card.

Problem Dragon accompanied Osaka06 to the ring. He was quickly attacked and had his mask torn off. He was then sent backstage for the majority of the match. He returned with a new color mask and hit Tominaga with powder, allowing Gamma to score the pin. CIMA led a Problem Dragon chant, and told him to keep up his rehab. He also congratulated Gamma on returning from his surgery in fine fashion. He poked fun at his sunburn. Gamma admitted he slacked on tanning while rehabbing, so he hurriedly went to the salon three days in a row. Gamma then announced he was ready to return to full time competition.

T-Hawk told Yamamura any time he wants another ass kicking, he can come get one. That also goes for Ben-K and Shimizu.

Takagi and Kong once again could not stay on the same page, leading to them hitting each other a few times. Kong was still more than happy to praise Takagi for his comeback win, but Takagi wasn’t moved by the gesture. What was Kong trying to pull today? Kong reminded him that he did the same thing in Kobe. Takagi blew that off. That was all Tominagas’ fault. Today was all Kong! In fact, he thinks he did it on purpose! Kong said maybe it was. But maybe Takagi did it on purpose back in Kobe. That makes them even. They turned their attention to YAMATO. He was the one with the most to lose in Aichi. YAMATO told Takagi the old Japanese saying 能ある鷹は爪を隠す. Nou aru taka ha tsume wo kakasu. Taka no Tsume being the name of the move Takagi won with. It means that someone should always keep their best tricks secret for when it matters. YAMATO won’t fall for this one again. He also said that this quarrel between stablemates is what happens when you are faced with being locked inside a cage together.Hulk got involved, and everyone promised to be the one that survives the cage. YAMATO began to close out the show before realizing there was another match left. He awkwardly did his catchphrase, even though he got pinned.

Doi celebrated the successful title match. It was a difficult fight from start to finish, but they pulled it off. His partners were still in their early 20’s, and he is forever young. He promised to return to Tokyo with the Dream Gate title belt as a double champion. The show was about to wrap up but Speed Star hit, bringing out Masato Yoshino. Doi was legitimately shocked to see him. Why was he here? Yoshino received another LINE message from Shimizu that said “Doi wants to see you really bad”, so he figured he would oblige. Doi wondered why Shimizu was having such conversations with an important title match looming. They bantered a bit before Yoshino got to the real reason he was here. To announce he would be returning to the ring at the 5/9 Korakuen Hall show! Along with Shimizu & Ben-K they also announced the formation of a new unit. Details will come soon.

Due to injury, it was announced at the start of the show that CIMA would be retiring today.


April fools.

After pinning the Brave Gate champion, Yamamura announced that he….did not want a title shot. Not yet, anyway. He was going to continue to hone his skills and once he feels brave enough he will make that challenge. Kagetora told him that he hopes he is still champion when that day comes, because he is looking forward to seeing Yamamura reach his potential.
CIMA turned his attention to K-ness & Kanda. CIMA wasn’t inclined to give away title matches to 3rd stringers, but if they want it so bad they can try and take the Twin Gate from them. Today was all jokes and fun, but after the match K-ness & Kanda may have to announce their retirement for real. K-ness told them they had no idea what he & Kanda were truly capable of. They would get an up close and personal view of it.

Takagi accidentally struck Kong, causing him to be pinned. Kong had a sneaking suspicion that it was not an accident at all. They are going to be in a steel cage together on May 5th. Takagi should take care to not let this happen again between now and then.

Things also continued to heat up between YAMATO and Hulk. Hulk tried to keep things calm. Even though things are going to get nasty in the cage, they were teammates until then. YAMATO refused a handshake. As long as he has the title, he can carry Dragon Gate to new heights. Whether his opponents was Hulk or someone else, he would be the one that walks away as champion.
