MB & the Jimmys argued after the dark match. First they bantered about the upcoming RyoSuka Twin Gate challenge. Eventually they decided to add Tanizaki & Problem Dragon to the main event to make it 4 on 4. After MB left, Kanda greeted his hometown fans.
Saito thanked Candy for both his energetic performance tonight, and for his 15 years of service. He then passed off the show closing duties to him. He thanked the Chiba faithful for such a great turnout on a Monday. The amount of streamers thrown for him during his ring introduction reminded him of his retirement match from 2002. He thanked the fans, and the Jimmys for their continuing support.

Kzy taunted DK after pinning him. DK was irritated at him celebrating like he just won a clean fight. Kzy wondered if DK really was qualified to be Brave Gate champion, since he wasn’t brave enough to answer his challenge. DK still did not accept.
Tozawa declared the war with the old timers over, after their recent series of wins. He implied their next target was the Jimmys, which brought out RyoSuka. They asked for a Twin Gate shot. Tozawa laughed it off and refused, because Uhaa was going home on the 30th. There was not a suitable place between now and then. After Saito pushed the issue, Tozawa said he would be back on 4/17. Saito pointed out the next Sambo Hall was on 4/19, so that is where they would fight for the titles. Hulk was generally very bothered by this whole exchange and accepted the challenge for 4/19.

-Don Fujii (3:02 Nice German) Problem Dragon
-HUB (9:56 Armageddon) Kzy
-Dragon Kid (12:35 Ultra Hurricanrana) BxB Hulk
*Team Veteran Returns win 3-2
Ichikawa asked for a non-comedy fight with Kanda, since he was his debut opponent 15 years ago. The match still progressed as a typical Ichikawa match would, though.
Tozawa said the overall main event result meant nothing, because MB defeated the Dream Gate champion. CIMA and the Nagoya fans told them just to get out of the ring so they could celebrate. CIMA did admit to the 1 on 1 defeat, and acknowledged how dangerous Uhaa was. He thanked Fujii, HUB, and DK for saving them by winning out the final 3 matches. They talked a bit about DEAD or ALIVE once again making a local TV airing on Tokai TV for the first time in a few years, about how Team Veteran would successfully defend all their titles there, and that Gamma would make a full recovery and return soon. DK closed things out with the standard closing speech.

-Nation (31:53 Uhaa Combination) DK
The main event was changed to a Naniwa style elimination match. Uhaa defeated DK & Ichikawa and a handicap arm wrestling match to gain the main advantage for MB.
Fujii chose to sing the usual Yumeshibai for his song. Kagetora chose Den-en by Koji Tamaki. Swann did a pitch perfect rendition of Billie Jean by Michael Jackson.
K-ness capitalized on his continued momentum by calling out CIMA. He wanted a Dream Gate title match. CIMA said he didn’t back down from any challenge, and accepted. K-ness said that he would force open the door to his dreams, and he was still full of miracles. The match will happen at the April Korakuen Hall show.
YAMATO raged at yet another -akatsuki- loss. He insisted he was handicapped today and demanded a singles match with Arai. Kotoka was inspired by his recent run of success and decided to challenge Takagi. Both were set for the April Korakuen.
YAMATO then yelled at Tominaga for failing in his duty as captain. He gave him a hard slap. Tominaga countered with a slap of his own! He apologized for being terrible, and insisted he & Shenlong both restart from dark matches. They will face each other in one next month.
Tozawa began to boast about the MB win but he was quickly struck by a a tail attack from HUB. They argued back and forth, until DK joined in. He admitted his defeat today, but as a team with HUB they would be unbeatable. They set up a tag match with Hulk+Akira for next month. Stalker laid out a challenge to Uhaa Nation, but it was totally unacknowledged as MB left.
Team Veteran closed out the show with a standard closing speech.

Kzy took the microphone after the opener. He said that Osaka once again saw the power of the mighty Uhaa Nation. He mocked DK for losing after his triumphant conclusion yesterday. HUB drop kicked him to get him to shut up. They bantered back and forth, continuing to set up a MondaiKZ vs. Chinese Astrology tag match for the future. Kzy once again said the International Problem Dragon would love an opportunity to bury them in salt. He called out Stalker & Kong to start match two.
3/2/2013 Osaka, BODYMAKER COLOSSEUM #2 – 1350 Attendance

*MochiFujii fail in their 7th Defense. MAD BLANKEY become the 24th Champion team
6. Open the Brave Gate Title Match: Dragon Kid (21:02 Ultra Hurricanrana) HUB
*8th Defense for DK
CIMA & Yoshino had their Dream Gate match contract signing at the beginning of the event. Yoshino said that he felt stronger going into this challenge than he did 4 months ago. With the support of the Osaka fans, he would win and change the DG landscape. CIMA revisited the talking point from their 2010 Dream Gate match about Yoshino being nearly a perfect opponent. However, while they would surely take their fight to the next level, Yoshino would still not be able to the open the door to his dream.
Tozawa celebrated after the opener, saying the MB team that won would be there to lend backup to Hulk in the semifinal. They brought out Uhaa Nation. Hulk introduced him to Osaka. Together they would crush the decrepit old timers carrying the tag belts. This brought out Team Veteran. Hulk told him that despite their experience, they had never faced such sheer destructive force as the one they face today. Fans of MochiFujii should enjoy this last glimpse of them as champions. Mocchy said that was a surprisingly good promo, considering it came from Hulk. Power means nothing when it is going up against an unstoppable object, and that it was Team Veteran was. They would show the power of the middle aged tonight.
After winning, Hulk told the rubes in Osaka that they got to see the true power of Uhaa. Moreover, it was the true power of MAD BLANKEY. This was just the beginning. They would soon take all the titles.
MondaiKZ appeared after the main. Kzy was overly polite, calling the main event a great fight. DK asked him what the hell he wanted, since nothing that had been done or said he anything to do with him. Kzy was once again polite. He reminded DK that MB had taken the Twin Gate. Now, the International Problem Dragon was hoping to burying DK in salt at some point. DK assumed this meant a Brave Gate challenge. Kzy just politely repeated the bury you in salt phrase. DK continued to assume this meant a Brave Gate challenge, and flatly refused it. They continued to banter back and forth for a bit, until kzy turned to HUB and mocked him for losing. DK told them to just get the hell out of the ring and the arena.
He turned to an emotional HUB. He said thanked him for the tough challenge. Then he recalled that last year was the Year of the Dragon, and this year is the Year of the Snake. Next time they come to Osaka they should form a New & Old Astrology tag team. He gave him the microphone. HUB said that today was the 14th anniversary of his debut in pro wrestling. It feels like a dream to have been in a main event title match on a DRAGON GATE show for such an important day. He thanked DK, the fans in attendance, and all the fans who have supported him in these 14 years.
