The usual rope separated unit MC battle came after the opener. CIMA promised that BW would own all the titles by the end of the night.

It was then time for Doi Darts Christmas Version. This time around, it was to decide the count rules for the Triangle Gate match. 1, 2, or a 3 count. A child was selected from the crowd to toss the dart. They hit 2 count rules.

Mochizuki handed the Dream to CIMA, then left BW to close the show. CIMA said BW made good on their promise from earlier, and they now have every title. The comeback from JIII having all of them back at the June CHAMPION GATE in Hakata was complete. The next goal was the complete elimination of JIII. He promised that by February they would be dismantled. CIMA talked about his comeback match at FINAL GATE 2008 where he was choked out by YAMATO. Still, he doesn’t hate Hakata because of that. So, in February when they return to Hakata Star Lanes, he will make his first Dream Gate defense. With Mochizuki defeated, he asked who would be the next to face him and be trounced.

BW posed with all the title belts to close the show, and with it, 2011.

Fujii accidentally eliminated himself to give Shenlong the battle royal win. Shenlong promised to win the Dream Gate in 2012. Fujii chokeslammed him for speaking such nonsense.

CIMA & Mochizuki traded speeches that promised victory in Fukuoka. He insulted JIII fans and said they had no boyfriends or girlfriends, and would spend Christmas alone….

JIII & the rest of the non-BW roster closed out the show by throwing coloured balls into the crowd.

The standard BW vs. JIII MC battle came before the DGUSA clash. Mochizuki told Swann in very broken English to win for JIII. CIMA mocked Mocchy for his poor language skills, and proceeded to speak in his typical beautiful English. Defeated in the talk battle, Mocchy simply asked for the bell to ring for the match.

Fujii & Swann wore sumo mawashi attire for their special tag match. Fujii came out after the second match and gave a mawashi to Gamma. He told him to wear it to Sambo Hall on Sunday.

Fujii also approached CIMA after the opener. He told him he was expecting an incredible match, but he had a request for his former partner. Fight cleanly in the match. No rule breaking, no interference. CIMA said a request from the Great Don Fujii was enough, he would comply. Tozawa wondered why CIMA would even listen to an old man like Fujii. There seemed to be some discord between CIMA & Akira.

8. Shingo Takagi (13:45 Pumping Bomber) Akira Tozawa

The tug of war series pairings were decided before the opening match. There was the usual war of words between the participants. Ryo said he would pin Jimmy in a very jimi (simple) way. Susumu responded by saying Ryo was going to lose in spectacular fashion. Tanizaki & DK traded barbs about the FINAL GATE Triangle match. CIMA had nothing to say about having to face Gamma. Gamma said he had relatives in attendance so he would fight his hardest. Yoshino reminded Hulk that he was 3-0 against him going into tonight, and it would soon be 4-0. Tozawa said it was fate that he would face Shingo, and what he has done to him until now wouldn’t compare to the hell he was about to see. Takagi said things went exactly as he wanted, and he would crush Tozawa to give JIII the win.

Mochizuki taunted CIMA & BW after the JIII win. CIMA had little to say. He resorted to taunting the local Ham Fighters baseball team, saying they would finish dead last. Mochizuki closed the show by saying he was sure they would do very well, and that pitcher Yutaka Saito would win 15 games for them.

12/10/2011 Hokkaido, Sapporo Teisen Hall – 880 Attendance

6. CIMA, Akira Tozawa⭕, BxB Hulk (22:10 Package German Suplex Hold) Masaaki Mochizuki, YAMATO, Jimmy Susumu❌

Mochizuki & JIII were the opening MC. He said the unit wasn’t properly formed when they were last in Hokkaido back in May, so he formally introduced JUNCTION THREE to the Sapporo fans. He brought up that on that stop in town, Cyber betrayed them after less than 30 minutes as a team. Now, Cyber wasn’t even a BW member anymore. Gamma was his usual energetic self and promised a total JIII sweep on both nights of the doubleheader. This brought out CIMA, BW, and the rope to separate the two units. CIMA ran down Sapporo and the fans, as usual. He said JIII couldn’t possibly win out on both shows, especially without Rich Swann in tow.

The typical arguing ensued, bringing up the FINAL GATE main event before Shisa, Kzy, and the now very talkative Tomahawk traded barbs in advance of their Hokkaido locals match-up later in the night.

CIMA taunted JIII after the main, asking them what happened to that clean sweep they promised. He then promised a BW sweep for the tug of war series tomorrow. BW departed, leaving Mochizuki & Yoshino to close out the show. Mocchy said they were doing so well up until the main event, but poor Jimmy…..

He promised JIII would do their best tomorrow night.

The usual talk battle started the show. The city insult from CIMA today was calling Nagoya the most embarrassing city in the world. 

Mochizuki mentioned the Jimmy’z. CIMA said that the simple country folk here in Nagoya probably had not heard about that yet since it only happened 2 days ago in Tokyo.

Yoshino moves on to face Ricochet for the Brave Gate at FINAL GATE.

At some point tonight, Swann managed to abscond with Tanizakis’ Triangle gate title belt.

CIMA didn’t have much to say after the main event loss, so he resorted to insulting the local Chunichi Dragons baseball team. He said they would finish dead last next year, then BW stormed off.

Mochizuki said the Dragons and JIII would surely win everything next year.

6. 18th Open the Twin Gate Champions Decision Match ~ Jimmy contra Twin Gate: BxB Hulk, Akira Tozawa⭕ (23:46 Package German Suplex) Susumu Yokosuka❌, KAGETORA
*Hulk+Akira become the 18th Champions, Susumu & KAGETORA have to rename to Jimmy Susumu & Jimmy Kagetora

The special condition that Hulk+Akira have put on the Twin Gate match is, if they win Susumu & KAGETORA will have to change their names to Jimmy Susumu & Jimmy KAGETORA. This is a play on the word 地味 (jimi), which basically means plain or simple. BW have been calling Susumu & KAGE the “jimi tag team” as an insult. The terms were accepted, so the main is now Jimi contra Twin.

Doi called out the most garbage team in DG, K-ness & Araken. He said that their junky team with Iwasa were the next Triangle Gate challengers. The match was set for 12/20.

Uhaa attacked Cyber after his match.

As per the stipulation, KAGETORA & Susumu Yokosuka are now Jimmy KAGETORA & Jimmy Susumu. Or Jimi, but Jimmy sounds better. Collectively they are the Jimmies. Maybe they can feud with R Truth now. Mochizuki wasn’t particularly kind about it, he poked fun at Susumu for losing yet another name match.

Shingo & YAMATO made an attack on the new champions, and said they wanted a title shot before the year was up. Presumably FINAL GATE.

The next Korakuen is the fan thanksgiving/appreciation event. CIMA said he had no thanks to give any fans in Tokyo. Mochizuki announced that over 40 names would be on the show, and he hoped to see everyone there.
