Yoshino thanked his hometown fans for filling the gym to capacity even though it is a weekday. Today is 15 years to the day he debuted in Mexico, 9/2/2000. He was all the way in Mexico for his debut match. He is grateful that he can celebrate this milestone 15 years later in his hometown. He would be in the main event with his amigo Shachi & Tozawa. He brought up the special 15th anniversary commemorative t-shirt that went on sale today. He hoped everyone would go buy one, then wear it while cheering for him in the main event.
Doi said that his team were the real heroes of Higashiosaka. That Yoshino guy was just a try hard wannabe. For those that hadn’t heard yet, the entire DRAGON GATE landscape was changed three days ago in Hakata. Dream Gate champion Shingo Takagi, Twin Gate champions YAMATO & himself, alongside Eita, Kotoka, Problem Dragon, & Cyber Kong have come together to form a new unit. Today is their first official day together and they have no intention of starting on a sour note. Kotoka chimed in. Today, the world-famous Ohayou Asahi reporter Kotoka returns to Higashiosaka. No one should care about that loser Yoshino. It didn’t matter who their opponents were. They wanted their fight and they wanted it now.
MONSTER EXPRESS celebrated after the main event. They shared some banter about the special green costume Yoshino wore today. Tozawa was unaware it was his favorite colour. Yoshino talked about his parents being in attendance today. He went to Mexico in March 2000. He came back to Japan with long hair, pretending to be Tarzan. He then was an Italian Tarzan. He thanked his parents for their support over the years. As he starts his 16th year, he continue to represent Higashiosaka as a DRAGON GATE pro wrestler. He hopes the fans will also continue to cheer for him.

Problem Dragon & PT initiated a sneak attack at the start of their match, but Fujii took no part in it. He simply waited in the corner.
After the match, YAMATO & Doi attacked Yoshino. T-Hawk ran out to make the save. Doi wondered why. This match had nothing to do with him, Yoshino had nothing to do with him. Sure, they were fighting for the Twin Gate tonight. That was the main event. T-Hawk should be taking this time to rest and prepare. Furthermore, where is his partner? Why is he out here without Takagi?
T-Hawk had no answer to that part. Yeah, Takagi wasn’t out here. He doesn’t know what he is thinking, or what his intentions are. What he does know is that he is the Dream Gate champion and his power is very real. Today, he will take advantage of that power to gain revenge on the ones responsible for the end of his unit.
Did he really believe he was capable of taking the Twin Gate? Doi & YAMATO are the perfect tag team. Today was the first time T-Hawk & Takagi would be teaming. T-Hawk is also in the middle of a huge slump. Just last week he was pinned by that puny little pussy Kotoka. Anyone who loses to someone like Kotoka is not a threat to a champion. His descent to the bottom would only continue here today.
T-Hawk reiterated his earlier statements about Takagi and his strength, and asked the Hakata fans for their support in the main event.
Tanizaki was once again in combat mode today. In the early stages, he refused to tag K-ness. At the end, he accidentally hit him, allowing Mochizuki to score the pin. He went after K-ness after the match, but Susumu stopped him. Tanizaki stormed off on his own.
Takagi betrayed T-Hawk in the latter stages. YAMATO, Doi, & Takagi shared a handshake after the match. Doi said this was their answer. T-Hawk really thought he was going to just waltz to the top of DRAGON GATE? Doi, YAMATO, & Takagi worked together to make sure that didn’t happen. They berated T-Hawk. He was all talk. All his big words and proclamations while in the Millennials. All talk, with no ability to back any of it up. To have such a hack in main event title matches was unacceptable. This was just the beginning of his descent. There were some others who were bent on destroying him. He called them out. This brought Eita & Kotoka out. They assaulted T-Hawk while Takagi broke a chair over his head. Finally, MONSTER EXPRESS made the save.
Tozawa didn’t really understand what this was all about, but what he did understand is that Takagi turned out to be just another traitor. He would pay for that. Takagi said that it wasn’t betrayal. It was a righteous revolution. To start a revolution, you need comrades. Tozawa roused T-Hawk. Would he consider teaming with Shachi, Yoshino, & himself to put an end to this right now? T-Hawk agreed, but only if both Kotoka & Eita were included. This would make the match 5 on 4, of course. Tozawa knew just the guy to even the odds. He called out CIMA! CIMA said this wasn’t the DRAGON GATE he knew. The DRAGON GATE he created with his own blood and sweat. He would help ME & T-Hawk put an end to this. A 10 man tag match was quickly started.
For whatever reason, Big R Shimizu interfered in the closing stages, hitting Eita with the Shot-put Slam. This allowed T-Hawk to pin him. Cyber Kong & Problem Dragon joined in after the match to help the Takagi side. Takagi was furious. This had nothing to do with Shimizu. Why was he here? Why wasn’t that a disqualification? He was showered with boos and calls to leave the ring. He was abusive towards the fans. The ones that should leave are those who are against this movement. It didn’t matter. The winning side was already clear. The side with the Dream Gate & Twin Gate titles. That was the only reality that mattered. There was no place for the weak in this reality. Only the strong will survive. Their side departed.
Tozawa finally understood what Takagis’ intentions were, and he was going to make him regret all he has done. T-Hawk was still bleeding from the post-Twin Gate match attack so Tozawa implored him to get it treated. T-Hawk was still reeling from everything, but he thanked the others for fighting with him. Tozawa asked Shimizu, a member of Dia HEARTS, why he came out.
Shimizu was his usual inarticulate self, but he said that he has been saved by T-Hawk in the past and he just wanted to repay that debt. Furthermore, he wanted to ask T-Hawk to team with him in the Summer Adventure Tag League. Together they could probably make a huge impact. CIMA wondered if he even needed to be out here at all. There was plenty of firepower and potential in the other members of the team. He & Shimizu left the ring. After some small talk between T-Hawk & ME, T-Hawk closed out the show.
His head hurt, and he had a lot of things on his mind. He decided to keep it simple. The main thing that drove him to fight back today was the cheers from the fans. He was on his own, with no team. That wouldn’t stop him from fighting with every ounce of strength he had to reach the top of DRAGON GATE.

Today was Kandas birthday. Tozawa wondered just how ancient the old man was. Susumu noted that at 37, he wasn’t that much older than the 35 year old Yoshino. Tozawa persisted. Those two years did in fact make him really really old.

6. 6 Man Tag Team Match -Road to New Stable- : YAMATO, Eita, Kotoka⭕ (21:02 Caldera) Naruki Doi, T-Hawk❌, Cyber Kong
Fujii asked Saito to return to the ring after the opener. He had something he wanted to ask him. In two weeks, the Summer Adventure Tag League would start. He hoped Saito would team with him. Saito was taken aback, he didn’t expect such an invitation from Fujii. The Jimmyz have been in flux recently, what with the unit disbands matches and K-ness joining. K-neSuka is already entered, and none of the other Jimmyz have brought up the tag league. He was very happy to accept the offer.
Takagi continued his recent run of brutality on U-T, prompting an appearance from T-Hawk. He won the match, isn’t that enough? He took things a little too far. Takagi wasn’t moved by the show of compassion. This little shit was like some punk out of some student wrestling federation. It’s because of puny kids like him that the Millennials don’t exist anymore. Since he shaved off his trademark mohawk, he totally looks like a child. How tall is he, anyway? The ring is no place for someone like him. The ring is for the strong. If that is all T-Hawk had to say, he could also get the fuck out of the ring. T-Hawk reminded him that it was HIM who offered to lend his power to T-Hawk to exact revenge on Doi & YAMATO. Takagi did concede that they shared the same goal, but the alliance was shaky at best after this exchange.
Tozawa & Yoshino made the official statement that Takagi was no longer a part of MONSTER EXPRESS. They were entering the tag league together with the intent of getting back at him.
Doi & Kong turned on T-Hawk in the final stages, leading to a 5 on 1 beating. This left him easy prey for Kotoka to pick up the win. Doi mocked him afterwards, pleading with him to hang in there and fight back. There is no way himself or Cyber would ever fight alongside someone like him. Yeah, MAD BLANKEY is over. But now they are all independents. That means they still share the same affiliation. He should be ready for similar results next week in Hakata.
Kotoka & Eita place the blame for the end of the Millennials squarely on the shoulders of T-Hawk. Now he has hell to pay at their hands. Kotoka wondered if Doi felt the same way, and asked him to join them. Doi wouldn’t go that far. They can do whatever they want with their hands, he has a Twin Gate match to prepare for. The former MB members left through one exit, Kotoka & Eita through the other. This left T-Hawk alone in the ring. T-Hawk addressed the fans. He lost his team, he was betrayed by his partner. He has nothing. But from nothing, a new beginning can start. When he returns to Nagoya, he will be firmly walking down that new path.
During the backstage interviews throughout the show, Osaka06 and Dragon Kid & Flamita entered themselves into the tag league.

Ichikawa said that since this was such an important day, the Naruki Doi 15th anniversary, he was feeling inspired. He would surely pin Saito. Saito assumed he would win in about 10 seconds.
Tanizaki was in combat Jimmyz facepaint today. Takagi won an exceptionally large quantity of Be Legend protein powder for his win.
Doi celebrated his win, to thunderous cheers. He talked about MAD BLANKEY disbanding, and his current independent status. Despite all that, he was once again aided by YAMATO and Kong today. He thanked them for having his back. After today, it would be back to the usual shower of boos, but today he was among friends. He thanked his hometown fans for helping Doimania run wild today. He hoped they enjoyed the show. In fact, the next Nara show was already scheduled. They would be back on Saturday, August 27th, 2016. Everyone has plenty of time to ask for time off, so they should keep their schedules clear. YAMATO joined in on the celebration. He said that while YAMATO & Kong were always up for a fight, they particularly wanted to do this to ensure a successful 15th-anniversary match. He congratulated him on the milestone. Doi said that while he still really fucking hates Tokyo, he loves his hometown. He loves it so much, that just for today, he will break his two year respite from autograph signings. He thanked the fans for everything today, and he expected to see them next year.

*MAD BLANKEY must disband
7. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Shingo Takagi (30:01 Last Falconry) Masato Yoshino
*Yoshino fails in his 2nd defense, Takagi becomes the 22nd champion
Kotoka used several low blows before pinning U-T. He Gave him a Caldera after the match and attempted to shave his mohawk off.
The customary main event interview segment was held between matches two and three. Takagi talked about all the fans that came up to him during the fan party last night. All of them asked if it was difficult to fight with a teammate. Honestly, no, it isn’t hard at all. Especially if it means destroying the ringleader of the friendship club. Assuredly, Yoshino would have that third-rate comedy wrestler Shachihoko BOY as his second tonight. What kind of help could that loser possibly offer? Fans boo him for saying such things, but he is just being realistic. Only the strong survive. That is all he has to say.
Yoshino said that Takagi showed what kind of person he really is. Shachihoko BOY wasn’t involved in the title match in any fashion, yet that is what he chose to talk about. That is fine because nothing makes him any more angry than people talking badly about Shachi. He would use that anger to repel the challenge from Takagi.
Kotoka came out again after the Triangle Gate match. At first, he attacked Eita. When T-Hawk attempted to intervene, he received a double super kick from both Kotoka & Eita. The pair then left together.
CIMA wondered what the hell Kotoka was up to. He changed the subject quickly to the match. He was knocked out cold in the middle portion, so he doesn’t remember about five minutes of the match. Even though it is Ota-ku, he doesn’t need an ambulance this time. There is a unit disbands match after intermission. Things are turbulent right now. But, there is one thing you can always count on. The three men in the ring holding the Triangle Gate. They aren’t a real unit, they are using their old theme. But they will still crush any team that tries to come after their titles.
Summer Adventure Tag League 2015 was announced after intermission. It will kick off on 9/5 in Okinawa, and run through to 9/27 in Kobe Sambo Hall.
K-ness betrayed MAD BLANKEY during the final stages of the match, allowing Susumu to pin YAMATO and end MB. K-neSuka reunited afterwards, sharing a handshake & hug. Doi was furious. The end of MAD BLANKEY was entirely the fault of K-ness. He will pay dearly for his crime. Rules are rules. MAD BLANKEY is done. They aren’t done, though. They are still Twin Gate champions. There is no better place for the Twin Gate champions than the Summer Adventure Tag League. Surely K-ness and Susumu will be entering as well. Good. They will face Doi & YAMATO in the first round, right here in Tokyo. That match will take place on 09/06 in Korakuen Hall. K-neSuka may have been Twin Gate champions in a time that has long past but they are no match for the current champions. K-ness asked for permission to borrow Susumu from the Jimmyz for the tag league. YAMATO said that while DoiYAMA will be entering and winning, this match will have nothing to do with the tag league. It will be the first of many penances for K-ness causing the end of MAD BLANKEY.
Saito thanked K-ness for saving the Jimmyz. Recently, he talked to his good friend Ryopachi Sensei, who was still upset over his inability to reform Makoto like he did Nobuhiko, Tatsuki, & Yoshihito. He would be relieved after what happened today. Saito then asked K-ness to join the Jimmyz. K-ness admitted that he had a great time in MAD BLANKEY. He really didn’t want them to end. He just wanted the Jimmyz to stay alive a bit more. Still, he almost forgot that today. It wasn’t until he saw Susumu in trouble that his body began to move on it’s own to save him. He revealed to Saito that the reason he took Saito backstage during the SCANDAL GATE disbands match was to prevent them from losing. He was open to the idea of joining the Jimmyz. Susumu was shocked by the save, but he couldn’t be happier. When he first became a Jimmy, he hated the whole thing. But, he loves the Jimmyz. The idea of being back together with his friend in the same unit sounds great to him. However….there was one problem. K-ness would need a new name that fits the Jimmyz naming conventions. He can take some time to come up with one, but something like Jimmy K-ness or K-ness Jimmy would be unacceptable. Also, each Jimmy has their own image color. K-ness quickly said that his was blue. Blue is already taken by Kanda. He also grew fond of yellow while wearing the MB colours. Yellow belonged to Horiguchi. K-ness protested. Horiguchis’ tights were more rainbow. Still, all his merchandise was yellow. He could use the time between now and the September Korakuen to decide on a name and colour. Horiguchi finally began to celebrate the Jimmyz win, but Tanizaki interrupted. Sure, K-ness saved them in the end. That doesn’t erase the fact that he his Tanizaki several times with a box, leading to his elimination. He told K-ness to piss off, before storming off on his own. Horiguchi assured everyone that things would get smoothed over. He thanked for fans for their support up to this point, and hoped they would continue to support the new Jimmyz in the future.
Takagi took little time to celebrate his title win. He quickly went after Shachihoko BOY with a Pumping Bomber & Power Bomb to a chorus of boos. He continued to berate him until Tozawa finally shoved him away. He had heard enough. Takagi went to far. Is that it? Is he done with MONSTER EXPRESS? Takagi said that since he was the winner, it was that jobber that leaves MONSTER. Tozawa wondered what kind of teammate he really was, saying such things about a comrade. He must have completely forgotten the reason they formed this unit. When they stood hand in hand, best friends, happiness, all of that. Sure, he remembers. This is the end result of having to put up with all that friendship club bullshit and having to carry losers like Shachi. That wasn’t what he signed up for. He knew Tozawa understood how he felt. Together they would tear through the Tag League, right? Tozawa firmly rejected his invitation. Tozawa had planned on teaming with him, but not anymore. He would team with Yoshino, and if they ended up facing off with Takagi they would beat some sense into him. Takagi really didn’t care. He could pretty much team with anyone and win the thing. Anyone but Shachi, of course. Even he couldn’t overcome such baggage. He would surely find a suitable partner. In fact, he had just the person in mind.
He called out T-Hawk. They were pretty much in the same boat, after all. T-Hawk lost his unit, his best partner just turned on him. He was totally on his own, just like Takagi. The way Takagi saw things, that made teaming together the logical decision. He asked him if he remembered who ended the Millennials. It was YAMATO, who held the Twin Gate. Takagi wasn’t satisfied with just the Dream Gate. He wanted more titles. He could satisfy that desire while T-Hawk exacted revenge on DoiYAMA. It was mutually beneficial and made total sense. T-Hawk agreed with him on all counts, and agreed to team with him and go after the Twin Gate. They shook hands.
Just as quickly, Takai told him that they were done talking and it was time for him to get the fuck out of the ring. The new Dream Gate title belt arrived in time for the match, so this made him the first holder of the new belt. This was fitting, because Mr Selfish Shingo Takagi was going to begin writing the next page in the history book. The friendship club bullshit is done. Reality was coming to DRAGON GATE. The might of the individual will reign supreme. The weak will be eaten. Only the strong will survive.

Doi protested the main event result, saying it was a fast count. A Mochizuki vs. Problem Dragon singles match was quickly made. Mochizuki immediately hit the Twister and won in seconds. Doi protested this as well. Monchan wasn’t ready. So a match with T-Hawk was arranged. Monchan ran directly into a knife edge chop and was beaten. Another protest followed so a match with DK was made. Monchan was unable to stand up at this point, so it never began. GM Yagi, in his post show comments, wondered if it would be better for MAD BLANKEY if Problem Dragon were to retire before the disbands match in Ota

Tozawa wondered if it was necessary for Maria to continue on now that the Millennials were finished. She assured him that it had nothing to with unit affiliations, this was who she really was.
Draztik Boy is from the DTU promotion in Mexico, and the regular tag team partner of Flamita. He is 23 years old with nine years of experience.

*Millennials must disband
PT was feeling pretty sure of himself after his somewhat shocking win. He claimed everyone just saw his true potential. He had something to say to a particular person, so he ordered Tozawa to come to the ring. He told Tozawa that he knew why he called him out here. Before he could even finish saying “August 16th” the fans booed relentlessly. That show is the one year anniversary of his dominant win over CIMA, the win that made him the other “Mr. Ota-ku” alongside Doi. He demanded a title match. Naturally, Tozawa assumed he meant the Owarai Gate. He was a comedy wrestler, after all. He didn’t train, his character was questionable at best. If he gave him a title shot it would be unbearable. But, he is a champion and champions don’t run from challenges. He would give PT the title match on one condition. There was an unstoppable old man that couldn’t make it to Tokyo today. That old man is Super Shisa. If PT was willing to make it a three-way he could have his title match. The match was set for DANGEROUS GATE.
Shimizu appeared without his usual ring costume, instead wearing some simple blue spats. CIMA was quick to pounce on this fact. He asked Mochizuki & DK who was this trainee they brought out to be their partner tonight. It was revealed that Shimizu had in fact forgotten his singlet in Kobe. CIMA was flabbergasted at this, as Shimizu had somehow managed to bring his boots, kneepads, and arm bands but somehow forgot his the most important part. The viciousness that the former Veteran Army trio showed to the younger generation in Kyoto & Kobe was once again on display here. Shimizu was given a thorough beating, even from his own teammates at times. CIMA didn’t let up after the match. He taunted and berated him while kicking him. He called him weak. Takagi last month, Gamma over the weekend, CIMA today, while wearing borrowed blue trunks because he couldn’t remember his own gear. Those who take the company and their positions for granted are his number one pet peeve right now. He wondered what kind of role models Mochizuki & DK were if this was the result of their supervision and guidance. While he was annoyed at him forgetting his gear, that wasn’t what this was about. CIMA admitted he always forgets things. Mochizuki didn’t quite agree with everything CIMA was saying. However, he also noticed the lack of motivation in Shimizu lately. The ring gear thing was just the latest evidence. He knew Shimizu had more in him, he demanded that he stick up for himself and take down his tormentors. Shimizu was finally given a chance to speak for himself. He barely got a few words about before CIMA began to kick him and Fujii delivered several hard slaps. All he could muster was that next time they fight the one who gets the 1-2-3 will be Big-R-Shimizu. CIMA accepted this for now, but said he had more to say later.
Takagi also continued to release all his frustrations. He overpowered both Hulk & Yoshino and dominated most of the match. Hulk was once again on the receiving end of the majority of the beating. He mocked him afterward. This pathetic guy was the one who held the Dream Gate until recently? He should probably hit the gym or something. He then turned to Yoshino. He had been incredibly patient this year. Tozawa won the Brave Gate. Yoshino & Shachi were Twin Gate champions. Somehow, Ricochet comes back and decides to team with this Sydal guy and walk right into a Twin Gate title match at World. Yoshino won the Dream Gate while he was dealing with some punk kids trying to start shit with him. None of this was very exciting, MONSTER EXPRESS wasn’t very fun. Still, he stuck it out for the sake of the team. That is, until he saw Yoshino so easily offer to team with T-Hawk. He couldn’t help but laugh. Yoshino and his good buddies club. Whatever, Yoshino has other wrestlers he likes. He does too. But he is, by himself. a pro wrestler. A pro wrestler should always aim to be the best. The symbol for being the best was the Dream Gate. He wanted to challenge for the Dream Gate title, but where exactly was that title? Why was he wearing some dusty old relic from 5 years ago? What kind of champion was Yoshino if he couldn’t keep track of his own title belt? If he was the champion the belt would be next to his pillow when he went to bed every night. He can’t call himself a champion. Yoshino told him to cut the bullshit. He had the nerve to talk about Yoshino teaming with T-Hawk once after all the times he teamed with Hulk this year? As for the title belt. Yeah, it is gone. It sucks. But, he won KING OF GATE, beat BxB Hulk, and then beat T-Hawk. His accomplishments and record are why he can be called champion. If Takagi didn’t like it, then in fact he should leave. Takagi backtracked. While MONSTER EXPRESS was boring right now, it was still his & Tozawa’s unit. They formed it. Yoshino came along later, bringing his third-rate comedy lackey Shachihoko BOY with him. The guy who sucked so much he singlehandedly completely ruined the entire power balance of the unit. MONSTER EXPRESS was meant to be just that, monsters. Shachi wasn’t fearsome. If anyone should leave the unit, it is them. Takagi looked to Tozawa for approval, but Yoshino interjected. He was fine with Takagi talking shit about him, but saying things about Shachi was the last straw. If he wanted to settle this, they could do it in a title match at DANGEROUS GATE. The match was agreed upon. Takagi warned him that this has been a stressful and annoying year. He still has plenty of pent of frustration to let out. In the ring, the weak are just chum for the strong. The strong are the kings. He was stronger than Yoshino. Tozawa was incredibly upset by the whole ordeal, and while he left in the same direction as Takagi he did not seem very sure of it.
Saito & T-Hawk were the remaining fighters for their respective units against YAMATO & Doi for MAD BLANKEY. K-ness pulled Saito from the ring and took him away from ringside, allowing the Twin Gate champions to finish off the Millennials.
Doi said there was nothing left to say. They won, fair and square. The Millennials were done. Fans should hit the merch booth and buy what was left of their merchandise. Not that anyone did that before this. There was plenty of it left. The company would probably make them buy it themselves. Starting tomorrow he expected to see them all with short black hair, and simple black trunks. Doi then turned his attention to the Jimmyz. Just where did Saito get up and run off to in the latter stages? Saito said he knew damn well where he went to. His teammate pulled him from the ring and dragged him all the way to the merchandise table in front of all those leftover Millennials goods. Doi said since Saito couldn’t even be bothered to finish the match that should mean the Jimmyz disband today too. They argued a bit until Doi proposed another unit disbands match. Saito said that the Jimmyz have climbed a ton of mountains in their four years together. This was just one more. If Doi wanted an all out war, he’s got it. However, this time it would be 5 vs. 5, one fall to a finish. 5 vs. 5 means Problem Dragon would have to take part. Doi wasn’t having any of this. Under those rules, Monchan would be beaten in like 10 seconds and that would be the end of it. The match would have to be under the same survival elimination rules as today. Saito began to set the match for the September Korakuen, but Doi stopped him. This wasn’t going to wait until next month, it was going to happen next week. August 16th, Ota City. Mr, Ota-ku would end another unit. Saito wondered how he was Mr. Ota-ku if he lost last year and lost to CIMA twice in the building. Doi promised to show him. The match was set for DANGEROUS GATE.
MB & The Jimmyz left, which brought the former Veteran Army trio to the ring. CIMA began to kick and berate them, much like Shimizu earlier. Last year, it was the Millennials who caused the end of We Are Team Veteran. Due to the sharp aim of small children he was forced into MAD BLANKEY, then kicked out within 5 months. He fell face first onto concrete, breaking his nose and teeth. T-Hawk was the one that shaved his head after the DEAD or ALIVE cage match. The reason he talked about all of that was to show T-Hawk & Eita that while today was rough on them, there was still an entire level of hell left to experience. He invited them to bring Shimizu along and challenge for the Triangle Gate. T-Hawk said they lost today, and that means it is over for the Millennials, but the experience they gained in their two years together will never be lost. He accepted the challenge. Shimizu got his ass beat today. The Millennials were disbanded today. The young generation is at the brink. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to find your next chance. He was giving one to them. He hoped they could seize it in Ota, but he wasn’t so sure they could. If those three teaming together would give us a glimpse of a bright future ahead, they would have to fight through hell for anyone to see it.
The Millennials gathered together in the ring for one final time. Kotoka abstained, throwing down his Millennials t-shirt and walking away. T-Hawk thanked fans for cheering for them. Whether you were from the same generation or just liked them. He admitted there were also quite a few fans that were less than thrilled with them. All in all, it was a great and unforgettable experience. Starting tomorrow, they were all enemies. But regardless of their alliances they would be the ones steering the ship in the years to come. He hoped that each and every other former Millennials member fought hard and gave their all. The young generation had plenty of fire left to burn.
08/02/2015 Hyogo, Kobe Sambo Hall ~SCANDAL GATE in Kobe – 1000 Attendance
1. BxB Hulk, Masaaki Mochizuki⭕, Kzy (7:58 W First Flash) Cyber Kong, Problem Dragon, Punch Tominaga❌
2. Gamma (7:16 Gamma Special) Big R Shimizu
3. Dragon Kid, Super Shisa⭕ (8:46 Yoshitonic) Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!, Jimmy Kanda❌
4. CIMA, Don Fujii⭕ (16:46 HIMEI) Eita❌, Kotoka
5. Open the Twin Gate Championship Match: YAMATO, Naruki Doi⭕ (21:08 Bakatare Sliding Kick) Jimmy Susumu, Ryo “JImmy” Saito❌
6. Special Tag Match: Akira Tozawa, Shingo Takagi⭕ (18:17 Pumping Bomber) Masato Yoshino, T-Hawk❌
The Jimmyz opened the show. Horiguchi said that himself, Susumu, & Saito would be the team they enter in the unit disbands match. Saito said that even though they have been around for almost 4 years, they still are having fun and want to continue. 10 years, 20 years, when they are in wheelchairs. They will save themselves, and more important they will ensure there is a place for Kagetora to come home to. Saito & Susumu called out YAMATO & Doi. Since it was SCANDAL GATE, they had a scandal of their own. They demanded todays’ match be changed to a title match. Doi was irritated at the whole thing. A scandal was a scandal, this wasn’t a scandal. There was no reason to have a title match. Saito said making interesting things happen was reason enough. They argued back and forth, and eventually Doi relented. They were champions they didn’t run from anything. They beat Ricochet & Sydal so they could clearly handle anything. It was made into a title match.
Takagi made a random appearance to attack Punch after the opener. Hulk also made an appearance. Somehow, Takagi & Kong ended up doing a tandem shoulder tackle on him. They briefly made eye contact before Takagi left without saying anything…..
Gamma quickly trounced Shimizu, then bragged about it. He was still a wonderful man, even if he was also an old man. He told Shimizu despite the corporate push behind him he was still lacking the necessary skills. Not just him, the other punk kids in the Millennials too. The great Gamma would take out all of these greenhorns on his own if he had to.
CIMA had similar words for the Millennials after their match. Kotoka still was pretty garbage, but he gave him credit for taking the fight to them. Even his usage of low blows was acceptable since it showed a willingness to do whatever it takes to win. But not Eita. Last year at this time, they had some momentum. Now, he has the nerve to come out before their hometown crowd and put forth efforts like this. He wasn’t just starting over from zero, he was back in the negative digits. CIMA was done protecting and looking out for them. The Millennials were on the brink of death. Their existence was on the line in four days. Were they going to just let themselves get pushed off the cliff? Backstage, he reiterated his statement. They weren’t just at zero, they were in the negatives. He frequently stands across the ring in the dojo from newcomers who want to be coached, want to be pro wrestlers. He considers them to be starting from zero. Kotoka, he has some spirit, but that is it. Nothing else. If this was the future of DG, they may as well end it now.
Doi boasted about the “easy” win. He told the Jimmyz to enjoy their last four days together. There would be no Jimmyz for the Sambo Hall double shot next month.
Yoshino wore the original Dream Gate title belt today, as the search continues for the old one.
Takagi, after another convincing win. declared there was nothing particularly special about that tag match at all. He asked Yoshino if he realized his mistake in trying to team with someone like T-Hawk. He continued to blast T-Hawk, calling him a loser until Yoshino finally lost his cool (A rare occurrence). He had been dealing with all Takagi has been saying because they are in the same unit and that is what you do. But he shouldn’t be saying such things in front of the fans. Things got heated between them until Hulk suddenly came out throwing kicks. He argued with Takagi. Yoshino now was irritated with him. This had nothing to do with him. After further arguing, a three way between Yoshino, Takagi, & Hulk was agreed upon. A time or place was not announced.
08/01/2015 Kyoto, KBS Hall ~SCANDAL GATE in Kyoto – 850 Attendance
1. Jimmy Susumu, Ryo “Jimmy” Saito, Super Shisa⭕ (16:45 Yoshitonic) BxB Hulk❌, Dragon Kid, Kzy
2. Jimmy Kanda (6:33 Ryu’s) Punch Tominaga
3. Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!! (8:54 Schoolboy) Cyber Kong
4. CIMA, Gamma⭕ (16:05 Blitzen onto a chair) Eita❌, U-T
5. T-Hawk, Kotoka⭕ (16:22 Inside Cradle) Masaaki Mochizuki, Big R Shimizu❌
6. Masato Yoshino, Akira Tozawa, Shingo Takagi⭕ (16:04 MADE IN JAPAN) YAMATO, Naruki Doi, K-ness❌
Shisa celebrated his first ever win over former Dream Gate champion BxB Hulk. Super Shisa isn’t finished yet, and we should expect even bigger wins to come. Saito & Susumu were so caught up in the moment they carried Shisa out on their shoulders.
MAD BLANKEY jumped Kanda after his win. Doi mocked him for being so excited for just a win over Punch. He assured Punch that it was fine that he lost. Doi talked about the unit disbands match. The Jimmyz were done. No more Jimmyz Train. No more stupid rubber band attack. The world has had its fill of them. They should enjoy the next week together because it would their last one.
Horiguchi addressed all this after his win. He won with a flash cradle today. Not the most decisive of wins, but a win nonetheless. At Korakuen, all that matters is just that. A win. Fans have been cheering the Jimmyz for almost four years now, and they will continue to be able to do so. Furthermore, they must assure a home for Kagetora to return to. He promised the Kyoto fans that the next time DG comes to town, the Jimmyz will be there.
CIMA had some harsh words for the Millennials. He questioned their desire. They continue to put forth results like today while others scrape and claw for just a chance. During the week off after World, he went to Greece. He trained and spent time with wrestlers there. People who want so badly to wrestle, but don’t even have a company or even a ring to do it in. He hoped they would listen to what he had to say today. Osaka06 was considering this month to be a new start for them. If the Millennials continue to show no hunger, they would answer to them.
Perhaps inspired in the wrong way by the criticism from CIMA, Kotoka used a blatant low blow on Mochizuki in the latter stages of their match, then another one on Shimizu to set up the pin.
Takagi came out after the semi-final. He had something to say to T-Hawk, so he demanded T-Hawk get back in the ring. He lost at World, just like the loser he is. He should thankful to just have the chance to main event on such a large stage. Maybe now he will stop with the generational upheaval nonsense. He wasn’t up to par. Takagi didn’t want to hear the words Dream Gate leave his lips again. Tozawa and Yoshino came out. Tozawa asked him why, right before their main event match, that he came out to say these things. Takagi insisted that this was his problem, and they didn’t need to be out here. Yoshino said that T-Hawk gave his all at World. Furthermore, they would be teaming together tomorrow. This whole deal wasn’t necessary. Takagi wondered why Yoshino was so concerned about that when he was out here without his title belt. He was the champion. The belt is his responsibility. How could he let the belt be lost? Yoshino was furious. Tozawa tried to mediate things until MAD BLANKEY interrupted. Doi was amused at this rare show of anger from Takagi. Still, he was just the absolute worst guy in the entire company. This didn’t change that. Takagi wondered how he could say that when he was standing next to a guy like Punch Tominaga. With his pathetic body, and rapidly evaporating punch perm. He should go home and be a family man. PT stormed the ring but was met with a Pumping Bomber that signaled the start of the main event.
Despite some friendly fire with Yoshino, Takagi cruised to victory. He said he didn’t even have to try all that hard. We would only see more fury from him in the future. He looked to Tozawa for agreement but was met with indignance. Takagi assured him that he was just venting his frustrations. He brought up walking out on Yoshino during his closing speech at World. He didn’t find any merit in the Yoshino/T-Hawk team and he wanted it to be known that he is opposed to it. Yoshino found it hypocritical for him to say such a things after he teamed with Hulk so many times this year. Takagi blew that off, noting that Hakata was the only real time they teamed. In Yamanashi he was just using him to create a big main event match for his hometown fans. Yoshino was the one being used here. Things began to heat up again, but cooler heads prevailed. Yoshino said they would all be in the ring tomorrow, and they could do their talking there.
