7. Team Tozawa Akira Final Special 6 Man Tag Team Match: Shingo Takagi, YAMATO⭕, BxB Hulk (27:49 Galleria) Akira Tozawa❌, Masato Yoshino, Naruki Doi

CIMA noted it had been awhile since he got to talk after winning a title match. He first met Dragon Kid 20 years ago. He was 19, Kid was 21. This year they turn 39 and 41, respectively. Their opponents today are also 15 year veterans. Next up in the main event, the top 6 headliners were going to show Osaka and the world what they can do. They weren’t carrying the load alone, as CK-1 proved today. Mochizuki was also here. Stalker Ichikawa was here. He doesn’t know where Dragon Gate goes from here, but there is still way more to come.

Takagi was harsh with Tozawa, as usual. Things were certainly lined up for a pretty finish, but it wasn’t meant to be. The strong will always be at the top of the food chain. That is how the world works. Even still, he finds himself caught up in the moment. Tozawa showed him what he was made of during the match. They have made a lot of memories together, both good and bad. Good luck over there.
He offered a handshake, but quickly gave a Pumping Bomber. Verserk ran out and put the boots to Tozawa. What bullshit, a graduation match. He can go to America or wherever the hell he wants as long as he goes. Verserk rules!
1 by 1, the entire roster came to the ring to run them off. Takagi chose to live to fight another day and ran off, but promise Verserk would get back at each and every one of them!

YAMATO was entrusted with sending off Tozawa after the match, but it is funny how fate works out. In getting rid of Verserk, the entire roster found their way to the ring. Now would be a good time for a Dragon Gate Graduation Ceremony. Everyone will get a chance to share their memories and give Tozawa a message.

Hulk: Tozawa is the best, and he fucking hates Shingo Takagi.

Doi: Why the sad face? This was the day of his departure. Do it without sadness. Make your dreams reality. He’s jealous that Tozawa has such an opportunity, but so full of respect that he is taking such a risk. Going to America alone, wow. Coincidentally, Doi finds himself alone now too. Dragon Gate is a family, and family stays in touch. Tozawa better drop him a line from time to time.

Yoshino: Naturally, all of his memories are from Monster Express. They spent 3 years together. Before that, they hadn’t talked outside of standard pleasantries. But they became stablemates, they became comrades, and they became friends.

Shimizu: They fought together for only about 6 months, but he received so much advice from Tozawa. He will use that advice to reach the top. BUT! If they ever fight again, the winner will be Big! R! Shimizu!

Flamita: Good luck in America.

Maria said goodbye with a kiss.

Kaasa: He loves him. Not only is he a hell of a wrestler, but he has the heart of a lion.

Tominaga thanked him for all he has taught him over the years.

Nakamura: He only spent about 6 months with Tozawa. While training for his debut, the days that Tozawa was leading the drills were the hardest. He really hated running those 10km marathons. Really hated it. But his stamina is better now and he owes that to Tozawa. He will continue to practice as hard as he can even with Tozawa gone.

Shun said he will miss the bright and funny Akira Tozawa. Good luck in America.

Hyou thanked him for all he taught him. He hopes to one day be able to run like Tozawa can.

Kotoka: Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh!

Yamamura: They were never on the same team, so he didn’t get the chance to talk much with him. Still, he learned so much from him in the dojo. He hopes he can be a wrestler like Tozawa some day.

Kagetora: Go, take your dream. If anyone can do it, it is Tozawa.

Kzy: Recalled their Brave Gate title match. He is so happy to have that memory. He promised to take up Tozawas’ role in making sure everyone is happy and has a good time.

Ichikawa: They always shared banter and small talk backstage. Now, Tozawa is going to America alone. Good luck, the fans all over the world will be cheering.

Gamma wasn’t around, so he doesn’t know what he was like when he debuted. All he remembers is everyone always being mad at him. Go to America, become even bigger than he is now.

Ishida thanked him for all the help he gave him in the last 3 years.

K-ness: Become the greatest Japanese wrestler. No, become the greatest Akira Tozawa you can be.

Kanda: Gamma got it right. Tozawa really pissed Kanda off in those days. Sorry for hitting him. Good luck in America

Susumu: Go, do your best in America. He will stay in Japan and carry this Jimmy name that Tozawa gave him. Stay in touch.

Saito: Pass on your bright, cheerful style to the world. Stay in touch. (Saito noted he still only has an old flip phone, so do it by email).

Horiguchi was in tears. If it is too rough, or he is being mistreated; come back. We will be waiting.

Mochizuki: Tozawas’ leaving will leave a hole that can’t be filled. If he comes back to Japan it probably won’t be with Dragon Gate, but he knows Tozawa can handle whatever comes his way.

Fujii bowed. Tozawa also really pissed him off back in the day. He never thought Tozawa would become what he is today, but he is so happy he got to see it happen.

CIMA: Following Kanda & Fujii he had to talk about the old Tozawa. When he brought Tozawa with him to Dragon Gate USA it was only supposed to be a one week tour. As such, Tozawa only brought enough luggage for a week. Well. CIMA changed his ticket to 6 months later without telling him. You never know what life is going to throw you, so he isn’t going to apologize. He hopes Tozawa is thankful. Tozawa is taking steps towards his dream, and CIMA is too. He will dedicate his life to advancing Dragon Gate. Let’s achieve together.

President Okamura told him Dragon Gate will always be his family. His roots will remain planted. Go, show America and show the world that the Dragon Gate style is the best.

YAMATO said that no one wants to see him go. From the roster to the staff to the fans, we all want him to stay. They are family. Tozawa doesn’t need to worry about them. They will meet again, somewhere. WHen that happens they will laugh, cry and act like idiots again together.

Tozawa thanked everyone for their words. He never set a good example for the younger generation so he isn’t sure what impression he will be leaving with them. He thanked his elders for putting up with him while he such a punk ass kid. As for the fans, he doesn’t know exactly what legacy he is leaving behind. He just hopes they will never forget that guy called Akira Tozawa.

6. Team Tozawa Akira Special 8 Man Tag Team Match in Kobe: Akira Tozawa⭕ Naruki Doi, BxB Hulk (17:25 Frankensteiner) Shingo Takagi, T-Hawk, Cyber Kong❌

Verserk attacked Maria after the second match, but Team Tozawa Akira made the save. Doi even had on the Tozawa shirt. Fans cheered loudly for Doi but he told them to shut up. Yeah, he is stuck with Team Tozawa today. But that is fine because he gets to fight with Verserk. Verserk. Since they kicked him out their matches have sucked, their promos have sucked, even their run ins have sucked. Any regrets? He is on his own now, but he is perfectly fine with them. No one can get in his way.
T-Hawk said that in Dragon Gate, no one can accomplish anything alone. He will find that out today when he tries to deal with his strange bedfellow teammates while up against the best Verserk trio. Takagi complained about having to team with Hulk in Osaka next week. He warned Hulk to do his best to ensure victory for Team Takagi.
Hulk was disgusted at the thought of being a member of …Team Takagi. That name is totally unacceptable. Takagi reasoned that since Team Tozawa has been a thing, it is natural the opposing team is also named after their leader. Hulk said they can have a name but it sure as hell isn’t going to be Team Takagi. Because he fucking hates Shingo Takagi, in case anyone forgot. They argued back and forth for some time without really saying anything until Tozawa also said he fucking hates Shingo Takagi so he should get out of the ring now. They agreed to settle things in the ring later. Tozawa turned his attention to Doi. He was really really worried about something and he needed an answer before their match later. Did that M sized Tozawa shirt really fit him OK?

Mochizuki directly challenged the Jimmy to a Triangle Gate title match on behalf on himself, Shimizu, & Peter. The Jimmyz run from no challengers so they accepted. They were interrupted by Verserk. No one wanted to see a title match between these teams. T-Hawk, YASSHI, & Kong also demanded a title match. A three way was made for Gate of Destiny.

Verserk attacked Tozawa after the main event, prompting Yoshino to hit the ring from the commentary table. YAMATO also got involved. They lost, the match was over. Get out of here. Takagi told him to mind his business. This was absolutely his business, because he was Team Tozawa Akira in Osaka. Takagi conceded that point to him. But YAMATO! What was his problem? Why did he stop Verserk from attacking? Weakening your opponent before a big match is a basic tactic. He is Team Takagi and he better not pull any stunts like this during the match. YAMATO said Team Takagi was such an embarrassing name that he is thinking about faking an injury to get out of it. They argued over the Team Takagi name for awhile longer. YAMATO said that thanks to the cruel fate of Doi Darts he has to team with Takagi. It is awful but he will do it for his brother. To see Tozawa off in his final match, he will endure it. Hulk agreed. He joined the company the same day as Tozawa and he will be there to see him on his last day. For his peer, his comrade. Not his other peer or comrade. He fucking hates that guy.
Takagi said that even though it was officially 3 vs. 3 he is going in like it is 1 on 5. He has no feelings of friendship or camaraderie with them. They have to team together so they should function as a team. Takagi thought this whole thing was a huge joke. This guy who never won the Dream Gate, who couldn’t save Monster Express. He couldn’t achieve any of his dreams in Japan so now he is going to go chase the American Dream? What a bunch of bullshit. In Osaka he will get a nice going away present from Shingo Takagi. That present will be a dose of reality. Takagi left.
Tozawa, Yoshino, Hulk & Tozawa bantered for a bit. This was Tozawas’ final match in Kobe. He is from a different part of Hyogo Prefecture but this is where he debuted and lives so this is basically his last hometown match. They all promised to have an unforgettable match in Osaka.
Doi was hanging around during all this. When he finally went to say something he got another round of cheers. Once again he told them to shut up. He never planned to be a part of all this. But Doi Darts has put him on a team with Tozawa. Sounds like fun. He offered a handshake. Tozawa reluctantly accepted but Doi immediately went for a Doi 555. Tozawa slipped out and they had a stare down.
Tozawa thanked everybody (except Takagi) for today. He asked the fans to ease up on the Tozawa chants because will start crying. He debuted here in Sambo Hall in April 2005. 12 years later, he has risked his life and put it all on the line in this very ring. He thanked everyone for their cheers, their love, and their support over those 12 years. He hopes they will continue to do so during his time in America.

5. Shingo Takagi, “brother” YASSHI, T-Hawk⭕, Cyber Kong (19:51 Night Ride) CIMA, Dragon Kid, Gamma, Naruki Doi❌

Mochizuki and Shimizu had a discussion after their match. Shimizu had wanted to ask him to team up to go after the Twin Gate, but CIMA & Dragon Kid already have that match. They decided to chase the Triangle Gate instead. He agreed. They contemplated their third member. Shimizu suggested Peter Kaasa, who is nearly ready to return from his injury rehab. Neither of them can speak any English but they just assumed he would agree. They called out GM Yagi to make the match for them but he wasn’t there…

Kotoka came out after intermission. In his time away, Verserk has changed. T-Hawk and Linda are in, Doi is out. However, he was still the most berserk warrior of them all. He represents Verserk more than anyone. He was now 100% so he would prove it by taking on anyone right now. Lindaman came out. Who did Kotoka think he is, interfering in his Brave Gate title match? He is a pathetic loser. He is done with Verserk. Go back to NEX and learn how to be a wrestler. Kotoka said they could go ahead and fight with the loser kicked out of Verserk. How does Takagi feel about this? T-Hawk, Kong, and YASSHI jumped him. Takagi followed up with a chair to his previously injured face. There is no place for him in Verserk anymore. This business doesn’t wait for anyone.

Lindaman interfered in the closing stages to help T-Hawk pin Doi. Takagi mocked him. He made for a good punching bag. Doi can find any partners he wants. The results will always be the same. Without Verserk he was nothing. The trash has been cleanup from Verserk and they can show their true power now.
Who was Takagi calling garbage? Yeah, it has been rough since he was kicked out. But he will recover and go on a one man rampage. But that is enough of that talk. Everyone from Verserk but Takagi can leave. The main event and aftermath are over. It is time for something else. This was Kyoto, where things always go down. Doi Darts was going to go down here.
Takagi had to be reminded that it was for the 11/03 main event. He protested. He wasn’t going to do it. YAMATO told him if he refused he was banned from the show. Takagi replied that he had no allies in the match. Unfair. Not happening. Hulk said for such a big strong dude he sure acted like a little bitch. Takagi agreed to just do the match 1 on 5. Yoshino called him a masochist. If they did 1 on 5 it would be over in seconds and Takagi would be so ashamed he would have to go into hiding. If it was 1 on 5 there was no point in Doi Darts so that was just not an option. Takagi finally relented, but with conditions. There was one thing these punk kids wouldn’t decide and that forcing Takagi to team with Tozawa. This is all his fault. Why should he have to join in this farce? He has nothing to do with Tozawa quitting to go to America. If he was doing this, he was going to be on the opposite team. It was agreed that Tozawa and Takagi would lead the teams, with Doi Darts picking the remainder. The teams ended up being Tozawa, Yoshino, & Doi vs. Takagi, Hulk, & YAMATO.
Doi was pleased with the results. But he reminded everyone involved he was a lone wolf. Don’t get too friendly. Takagi demanded professionalism from his partners. No funny business. Yoshino was happy that he gets to laugh, cry, and fight with Tozawa to the end even though Monster Express was no more. He hoped Hulk would have an off night when it came to not accidentally hitting his partners. Hulk insisted he would keep it professional, even though he fucking hates Shingo Takagi. YAMATO wasn’t happy he gave up a Dream Gate match to team with Shingo Takagi, but the current generation would show what Dragon Gate was all about for Tozawas’ graduation. Tozawa thanked Doi and the others for accepting his selfish request. 11/03 would be his last time in a Dragon Gate ring. He hoped fans would stay with him to the very end.

Verserk interrupted the customary First Gong Kids before the opener. Lindaman wasn’t going to allow one of these stupid kids ring the bell for his match. Over Generation ended up doing First Gong KIds before the semifinal and the child said their favorite wrestler was Cyber Kong…

Verserk attacked Doi again after his match. His match was finished, it was time for Verserk to destroy their next opponents. Get out. Doi told them he was irreplaceable and they would regret kicking him out. He trusts no one and will go on a one man rampage until he has paid them back.

Doi ran off Verserk after the opener. Who did they think would replace him? El fucking Lindaman? Verserk is nothing without him and no one is going to rampage with or without them.
Verserk returned the favor after his match. T-Hawk warned him that he had a target on his back.

-Takagi (37:00 Pumping Bomber) Tozawa
*Monster Express disbands

Monster Express opened the show. There was a problem, though. There were only 4 of them. They explained the situation regarding Peter Kaasa and his injury. Unfortunately, he was also unable to compete today. There were no potential replacements so what they have here is what they have. Verserk came to the ring. Doi was positively gleeful. This was it. This was the day that Monster Express would meet their demise. No Peter? That leaves them with 4. Clearly they had no choice but to make the main event a 5 on 4 handicap match. Tozawa proposed making the match 4 on 4 but Doi wouldn’t hear that. Tozawa had to relent. GM Yagi came to the ring to set the rules for the match. The match would be done under Loser Revives Instant Comeback Captains Fall rules. When a competitor is eliminated, they must go to the entryway. When their team scores an elimination, an eliminated member of their team is able to return to the match. The match can only end when the captain has been pinned or submitted.
Takagi was quick to declare himself Verserk captain. He made Monster Express, he left them when they turned into such a bullshit group, and now he would be the one that destroys it. He also demanded the right to name the Monster captain. He named Shachihoko BOY. Shachi was game, but Tozawa put a stop to that. Tozawa, not Takagi, was the one that created Monster Express. He would bear the burden of protecting it by being the captain.

Dr. Muscle interfered in the Brave Gate match, allowing Eita to win. Eita said a win was a win, interference or not. He said he had no use for Lindas’ cape. So he can keep it. Linda said he absolutely would have won without the interference. He wouldn’t forget this. He should be leaving with both his cape and the belt. It was added to the shame of being rejected by Tribe Vanguard. Payback was coming. He left, without the cape.
Eita moved on to other things. His title defenses so far were YASSHI and Lindaman. It was time for a real challenger. He was nominating Flamita. They fought together in Mexico, when Flamita was only 16. They had a lot of 1 on 1 matches. He won some, he lost some. But things are different now. He is a champion. He wants to show he is now stronger.

Dr. Muscle appeared again during the main event to attack Doi. He gave him the Caldera and revealed himself to he Kotoka. He was quickly chased backstage and did not appear again.

Doi taunted Monster Express after the match. They were done. Fair and square. It was over. Have fun in the States, Tozawa. He began to talk about the 11/03 main event, and Doi Darts but T-Hawk came up behind him and gave him the Urajigoku & Night Ride. The goal of dismantling Monster Express was achieved. Doi no longer was needed. He can go to the back of the line. He was out of Verserk.
Takagi said because of his stupid ass toy Doi Darts, Takagi had to be a part of this bullshit match in Osaka. He wasn’t needed in Verserk anymore. He wasn’t needed as a wrestler either and everyone knows it. This is the real Verserk, and the real war was starting.

Tozawa was just as shocked as everyone. He asked Doi ….What now? Doi had no idea what just happened. He wasn’t going to trust or make any decisions until the next Korakuen.

The former Monster Express were left to reflect on their 3 years together. Tozawa thanked them for everything. He expected to see Big as a top player sooner than later. He apologized to Shachi for talking down to him earlier. He loves him. As for Yoshino…Before Monster Express they never really talked beyond very dry greetings and introductions. 3 years ago, they became family. He has a brother that is 5 years older. 3 years ago he gained another brother that is 5 years older.

They closed the show doing the Too Easy pose, as their entrance theme played for the last time.

Ryo “Jimmy” Saito was pulled from the show due to a foot injury.

Horiguchi gave a speech after the main event. Akira Tozawa is leaving Dragon Gate next month, which gave him the rare chance to form a team with partners from outside his own unit. He asked Tozawa to address the fans.
Tozawa thanked them for supporting and following him for the last 12 years. He will be moving on to new challenges in America, but he will be doing so as a representative of Dragon Gate.
Horiguchi talked about the charity activities the company has undertaken to aid relief for Kumamoto since the April earthquake. From Hokkaido down to Okinawa, the entire country has Kumamoto in their hearts. Usually, it is the fans who look forward to Dragon Gate coming to their city. Today it was Horiguchi who couldn’t wait. The people of his hometown are positive, forward thinking and moving people. He is proud to be from here.
The show ended with a Team Tozawa Train.

*4th Defense

Peter Kaasa was injured while training, so the card had to be changed from the originally published lineup.

Doi reintroduced Verserk to the Hakata fans, with new members T-Hawk & Lindaman. He brought up Tozawa asking himself & Takagi to be involved with his last match in Osaka, but the answer was no. That is one dream he won’t see realized. Lindaman explained his decision in simple terms. He left Over Generation because he wanted to join Tribe Vanguard, but the fans shit all over his plans and left him looking like a fool. As a member of Verserk no one will obstruct him from doing whatever he wants to do. The fans are the ones that look like fools now.

T-Hawk reminded Yoshino there wasn’t much time left before their disbandment match. Was having trash like Shachi on his team really something he was ok with? He vowed that Monster Express would die at his hands.

Tozawa once again asked Doi & Takagi to give in to his selfish request and participate in his final match. Despite losing today, Takagi hasn’t changed his stance. No. Tozawa told him it was the last time he would ever see him. Takagi was fine with that. He is actually tired of having to see him. He hates bullshit matches like where everyone has to pretend to get along. Friendship club garbage. YAMATO said that no one has to get along. No need for pretending. Just do the match. It is a big show, they don’t have a match yet. Say yes.He was forgoing a Dream Gate title defense because his brother made one last request to him. A member of their family was leaving the house. It is their duty to see him off. Takagi wasn’t moved by this. He may as well throw the Dream Gate in the trash. What kind of champion is he? He should just give the title back to him. YAMATO said that no such thing would be happening. But it he wanted a title match he could earn it by beating him in this proposed match. Takagi laughed off his big talk. If that is what he wanted, he has got it. Tozawa took that as him agreeing to do the match. Takagi protested but Tozawa ignored it. All that is left is Doi. Doi wanted revenge for today. It would also be strange for him to not be on the last big show in Kansai this year. He’ll do it. He will do a 6 man tag match. Under one condition. They let fate decide the teams. The fate of Doi Darts. Tozawa accepted the terms, and was actually looking forward to it. He promised the leaders of the current generation would put on an unforgettable match, and he hoped fans would travel to Osaka to see him one last time.

At a key point in the main event, Referee Mr. Nakagawa was taken out by an errant blow. This caused him to be slow on the count during a DK pin attempt that would have given him the win. Due to this, Susumu & Kagetora offered them an immediate rematch at time. DK was happy to accept the offer, but Eita declined. He is the Brave Gate champion, and the commitments that brings may not allow him to accept a Twin Gate challenge any time soon. Besides, he is the one that got pinned today. If he wants the rematch, he would be OK with DK replacing him with another member of Over Generation. He would focus on the Brave Gate. Susumu was fine with this. DK thanked Eita for everything until now. When considering a replacement partner there was only one person he could ask. The young generation has been making waves all year. It was time for the veterans to shine. CIMA!
CIMA said that for the first time in awhile he actually felt horrible seeing a team that he wasn’t a part of lose a match. That Ultra Hurricanrana was nearly a 4 count. Then to see Eita lose after all he has accomplished this year. It really sucks. As for the offer; seeing all the different generations tonight has reignited his fire. They have changed a lot in the 20 years since they first met. It does seem like a good time for them to team up again on the big stage. The match was accepted.

The show closed with a Jimmyz train.
