6. KING OF GATE 2014 Tournament Finals: Jimmy Susumu (20:14 Jumbo no Kachi!gatame) T-Hawk
Maria wondered if Ichikawa had forgotten his role & character after his win on U-T. She said that they eventually would have to have a singles match with each other.
MB took over the ring after match 2. Doi told Hulk that he should enjoy wearing the MB colours while he can, since he will never be able to wear them again after Korakuen on Friday. Doi then called out the Jimmyz. They had a war of words over the semi-final tonight.
Susumu celebrated his win. He talked about losing to Flamita at DEAD or ALIVE, and the motivation it gave him. He had to go through 4 very strong opponents in T-Hawk, Takagi, Mochizuki, and even Kong. He wasted no time in calling out YAMATO. YAMATO congratulated him on winning a boring #1 contender tournament. He admitted he expected Hulk or T-Hawk to win the whole thing. He will give Susumu his title match at CHAMPION GATE in Hakata on 6/15. Susumu reminded YAMATO that he was bounced in the 1st round of this so called #1 contender tournament. In Hakata, he will go from King to Champion. The match was set by Yagi, with the added note that it will be the final Dream Gate match until Kobe World. The winner in Hakata will be guaranteed a spot in the main event at the 15th anniversary PRO WRESTLING FESTIVAL. YAMATO said Susumu winning was an accomplishment, but it was nothing like being Dream Gate champion. The champion is the peak, the KoG winner is number two at best. If Susumu is the King, YAMATO is the Emperor. Susumu spoke very honestly about his last run as champion. In 2006, he was Dream Gate champion at World. While his match was called the main event, it was followed by a special attraction CIMA match. It wasn’t a true main event. After he beats YAMATO, there would be no doubt that he was a true main event level champion.
The babyfaces closed out the show by tossing signed balls into the fans, finishing out DRAGON GATE in Kobe Sambo Hall until 2015.

6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: YAMATO (20:25 Galleria) Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!
The contract signing for the main event was held before the matches began. Horiguchi said he would not be fighting alone today. He would have all the Jimmyz behind him. Not only that, he would have all of the Kyushu fans with him. YAMATO called the loss to Horiguchi back in Hamamatsu absolutely shameful. He said before that match, he felt he had a 100% chance of winning. The stakes are higher now. His belt is on the line. Today he has a 200% chance of winning. He told the Saga fans they should be thankful for getting to see him defend the title.
Kanda & Tanizaki demanded a Twin Gate title match, based off the box aided pin on Tozawa. Tozawa refused, since they cheated to win. Kanda said a win is a win, as long as the referee counts to three. Tozawa relented, and accepted the challenge.
MAD BLANKEY came out after the Hulk/T-Hawk match. Doi mocked Hulk for losing. He asked him how he could possibly “protect” the MB name in Korakuen if he couldn’t even beat someone as garbage as T-Hawk. T-Hawk said this match had nothing to do with them. Eita stepped forward and said that the semi-final today was what they should be worried about. Both sides argued and vowed to win.
Doi pinned Eita without the use of a box or even powder. The Millenials were Triangle Gate champions, which means they are the strongest trio in the world. Doi disagreed, he thought they were the worst. MAD BLANKEY challenged for a title shot. The match was set for CHAMPION GATE in Hakata in June.
YAMATO fulfilled his promise to the Saga fans, defending his title. The next Dream Gate defense would also be in Kyushu, at CHAMPION GATE. It didn’t matter to him whether it was the KING OF GATE winner, or Stalker Ichikawa. He would beat them. He told the fans to head down to the train station and take the trip to Hakata to see him smash the next opponent. MAD BLANKEY departed.
Horiguchi & the Jimmyz were left to close things. He talked about his Dream Gate challenges. Despite losing, he was focusing on the positives. The Jimmys were reunited, and they had the next Twin Gate shot. Susumu was on his way to winning KoG. It wasn’t over for the Jimmyz, not by a long shot.

MAD BLANKEY jumped Hulk after his match. Doi ran down the Kokura city & fans, calling it backwoods. He told Hulk that his group were the real MAD BLANKEY, and Hulk wasn’t permitted to wear the colours or use the name. Doi passed off to YAMATO, who called out Horiguchi. Horiguchi called Kokura & the Kyushu region in general a wonderful place. They argued back and forth, promising victory in both the semi-final today and the Dream Gate match on Sunday.

MAD BLANKEY jumped the Jimmyz after the opener. YAMATO told Horiguchi that he was gunning for him, seeking revenge from their KoG match. The Millenials came out. MAD BLANKEY had made a backstage challenge for the Triangle Gate after Korakuen on Friday. Kong challenged them to put the titles up tonight. The decision was left up to the fans. They applauded loudly, so the semi-final was changed to a title match.
Some children put on a karate performance after intermission. Stalker, perhaps high off his win earlier, came out and challenged all of them to a fight. He said he would show them that professional wrestling was only for the strongest fighters. All 6 proceeded to defeat him in consecutive bouts.

As will probably be the norm for awhile, MAD BLANKEY jumped & taunted Hulk after his match.
All the Jimmyz have returned to their regular Jimmyz style, no more paint. Horiguchi said that things have been rough for them this year, but their recent reconciliation gave him the strength to beat the Dream Gate champion today. He wasn’t done performing miracles, and they won’t just be on his hair. He promised to win the whole tournament.

7. KING OF GATE 2014 1st Round B Block: T-Hawk (17:35 Night Ride) Akira Tozawa
Kotoka is now competing as Mr. High Tension Kotoka. There is no real change in his overall presentation, aside from being a bit more enthusiastic.
YAMATO fulfilled the promise he made last month, returning to Korakuen Hall as Dream Gate champion. He didn’t really have much more to say about it, because no one should be surprised or need to be told. Instead, he needed to talk about that traitor BxB Hulk. It didn’t matter, because with him as champion MAD BLANKEY was still the center of DRAGON GATE. He called Hulk out. Hulk came out in MAD BLANKEY colours, to DEATH DANCE POISON . Doi told him that he was in perfect form, both mentally and physically and he better be ready. Hulk welcomed the challenge. MB started to leave, but Kzy rushed the ring and jumped Hulk from behind. It was all his fault that Kzy was now bald. He was going to get revenge on the sudden “superstar” sooner or later.
Kagetora, inspired by the incredible Brave Gate match in Aichi, wanted his own chance to fight Flamita. He announced he would be going after the title and that he had found Flamitas’ weak point.
Susumu shoved down Kagetora after his quick win over Cyber. He took offense to Kagetora praising the match when he was the one who got beat by some 19 year old kid. Susumu vowed to win KoG to redeem himself.
The issues between Kanda & Tanizaki continued after their match. Ryo Saito came out and asked them to listen to what he had to say. He talked about his hernia and how he was still experiencing pain from it. He wasn’t sure if he could return any time soon. Now, his beloved Jimmyz were falling apart before his eyes. This was causing his enthusiasm for pro wrestling to evaporate. If this was the Jimmyz he would be returning to, he just wouldn’t come back at all. Kanda very quickly came around. If Saito wasn’t going to wrestle, he wouldn’t either. Therefore, the cheerful Jimmyz of old had to return for him. Kanda & Tanizaki shook hands, hugged, and almost kissed. The Jimmyz went to do their signature Jimmyz train but were attacked by MONSTER EXPRESS. Yoshino still had his sights set on Kanda. He proposed a 6 man tag for next month in Korakuen. Himself, Tozawa, & Takagi vs. Horiguchi, Kanda, & Tanizaki. The Jimmyz accepted, saying their restored unity made them unbeatable. Shachihoko BOY also had an announcement. He was in peak condition, and he too wanted a match with Flamita. Kagetora took exception. They agreed to a #1 contenders match next month.
Kzy attacked Hulk again, after his match. MAD BLANKEY was his. Hulk wasn’t allowed to wear the colours anymore. Hulk disagreed. After all, he created the name and logo himself. It was them who weren’t fit to wear the colours. They went back and forth for awhile until YAMATO kicked Hulk directly in his face. He told Hulk to shove his designs up his ass. He asked him if he was really ready to fight all of them on his own. This brought Yagi in. He once again asked Hulk if he was fine fighting on his own. Hulk said yes. Yagi promptly made a Nombre Contra Nombre match. Hulk will fight all 5 members of MAD BLANKEY by himself. The winner gets the MAD BLANKEY name. Hulk was left to close out the first half. He promised to win KING OF GATE, and generally make things in DRAGON GATE fierce and exciting.
T-Hawk closed out the show. He praised Tozawa, saying that Tozawa was a great fighter and a great on the microphone. He was great at everything, maybe even better than him. But today, he was the winner. He talked about the various unit troubles, and Hulk as a lone wolf. But really, that had nothing to do with the Millenials so it didn’t matter to him. They would continue to bring the power of youth to the DRAGON GATE ring. Next month, he would return to Korakuen Hall as KING OF GATE winner.
