CIMA completely KO’d Tanisaki with the Meteora. He told kong to take a good look, because he was next. He also called Dallas the worst, most garbage manager in the world.

The Veteran Army debuted new attire for interview segments – bathrobes.

There was a big talk battle between the main event units after the opener. Tozawa promised to crush everyone. Ricochet said DK was tiny & Horiguchi was bald. Horiguchi said the Jimmys whirlwind would continue. 

YAMATO talked about Akatsuki. He said they were off to a late start compared to the units in the main event. They didn’t have a logo yet. None of their costumes matched. But, they had the power of youth on their side so they would figure it all out soon.

Doi said the win today made W1i the #1 contenders to the Triangle Gate, and they wanted their title match in Aichi. Horiguchi agreed, but since Rico already had a title match booked for that day, there would be no Triangle match. Doi asked him if he bothered to read the official DG site at all. If he did, he would know that PAC would be back to Japan in time to fill that spot. Horiguchi said he didn’t really care if he brought PAC, PEC, or POC. They were accepting the challenge.

The show ended with the official announcement of the next CHAMPION GATE series, taking place in Hakata on 6/16 & 17. Each unit took turns promising to hold all the titles by then.

Naoki Tanisaki had to cancel his appearance for unknown reasons. Tomahawk T.T appeared for the first time since January to take his place….

YAMATO congratulated Tominaga on the win, and said last month it was Tommy inviting them. This month, they were inviting him to fight alongside them. Tommy happily accepted. He also admitted the newly won Platinum Trap Alpha probably did not suit him. However, he knew someone who it would suit. He called out….Super Shenlong! The 3rd iteration of the character came out. YAMATO wondered if he was a certain ugly wrestler that had also been fighting with them. he got as far as “Wa-” before Shenlong cut him off. he new Shenlong was also invited to the group. YAMATO deferred to Takagi for the unit name, since he was better at it. The new unit is named “Akatsuki” (暁), which means Dawn, or Daybreak.

By winning KING OF CHOP, Kobayashi earned the right to ask for anything he wanted. His wish was to enter KING OF GATE. It was decided he would replace CIMA in the tournament. CIMA will not participate. He also said he hoped to one day accompany CIMA to Mexico for training. CIMA if he can learn how to count to 100 in Spanish by the next Sambo Hall show, he would let him come. He warned him that he would be tested in the ring next month. Kobayashi gave the customary closing speech.

*MB win 3-2

Doi introduced WORLD-1 INTERNATIONAL to the Tokyo fans. He once again brought up the global concept of Doi from Japan, Swann & Ricochet from the US, PAC from England, and Yoshino from Thailand. Yoshino once again quickly changed the subject. They did have some bad news to report. Rich Swann was injured and was forced to miss his match tonight. Swann apologized, but assured the Tokyo populace that he did indeed love them. Doi & Yoshino contemplated what to do about the match. They decided to play rock, paper, scissors with the loser having to do two matches. Yoshino lost.

W1i invited Eita to join them. They got the same answer that Tommy did back in Nagoya. A denial in the form of a powerful chop! He was upset that they did something as trivial as rock, paper, scissors to decide his new partner.

There was some typical banter back & forth between MB & the Veteran Army after they decided the tug of war pairings. Mocchy promised a total victory. Tozawa said there was no way the fossils could win. He also said Problem Dragon could interfere at any time to cause some DQ finishes to ruin the Gaora live broadcast. CIMA said that viewers shouldn’t be subjected to Kimata at all, and hoped Gaora would censor/mosaic his image. They ended up making all the matches no DQ to prevent a salty finish. Further, CIMA vs. Kzy was made into a Falls Count Anywhere match.

YAMATO talked about not planning to enter a new unit this year. He & Takagi had planned on just fighting a duo. They have somehow have ended up with Tominaga & Watanabe tagging along with them. He said that even though Tommy was going bald at such a young age, he had high potential. YAMATO thought it might be OK to fight with them. Takagi was a little more cryptic. He said with KoG coming next month, he should be finding his motivation soon.

Tozawa boasted bout the MB win. He said Cyber would take the Dream Gate in Aichi, and they would also take King of Gate next month. He turned his attention to Doi & Yoshino who were at the broadcast table in the balcony. He promised that himself & Hulk would smash them in the tournament. He told Doi he was a nuisance and consistently held back Blood Warriors while he was a member. Tozawa added the only people who still support him were lonely people who just wanted to look at his ass in those small tights he wears.

Doi stood up at this point. He said his ass has served him well for over 10 years now. He asked the fans if they wanted to see him wear a T-back (thong) style outfit. Korakuen Hall exploded with joy & began a loud T-BACK! chant. Tozawa became flustered and stormed off with the rest of MB. Yoshino tried to calm the hall down by saying Doi wasn’t really going to do it, but Doi was now determined. He said Yoshino would wear one with him! Doi & Yoshino closed out the show from the balcony.

MB & Kimata kept up the attack on Tominaga after the dark match. Kimata went after his hair. Takagi & YAMATO made the save. Tominaga thanked them, and turned his attention to Kimata. He said that he didn’t have an entrance theme, while someone as garbage as Kimata had a great theme. He wanted it. Kimata said someone as bald as Tommy didn’t deserve it. So, it was decided that there will be some sort of Theme vs. Hair match between the two at some point.

After this, the order of entry for the CIMA Royale 3 was decided. It will be Yoshino & Ichikawa, Tanisaki, Kobayashi, Cyber, Problem Dragon, Gamma, Tominaga, Doi, Kzy. 

MB went after Kobayashi and his hair. Tominaga made the save. Tominaga asked Kobayashi to fight with him. Kobayashi responded to his handshake with a powerful chop! He said he was focusing his efforts on KING OF CHOP. For now, everyone was his enemy and he needed no distractions. Yosuke Watanabe flew from off the screen with a missile dropkick to Kobayashi and said everyone was forgetting about HIS chops. Tominaga reached out to him. He said since Watanabe was slightly ugly and he was slightly balding, they should team up! Watanabe was eager to agree…..

YAMATO & Takagi beat up Kzy after their match. Hulk said that between now and Dead or Alive, MB would destroy them.

Cyber demanded his title match at DoA. CIMA said aside from garbage Problem Dragon, any and all challenges would be accepted. Kong called Kzy & Kimata the MVPs of this show due to their part in all the MB wins.

Mochizuki demanded a Triangle Gate shot due to the win here. Kid said he wanted no part of that. Mocchy shrugged it off and said the Twin would suffice. So it will be MochiFuji vs. the Jimmys at DoA. 

Kid, who had been hinting all week that he had something planned for this show, made his intentions known. Surprisingly, he asked for a Brave Gate shot. He asked Yoshino, due to his stellar command of low level English, to send the challenge to Ricochet. CIMA said their English was suspect at best, and he wondered if the message would be conveyed properly. MB also came out here and made overtures at the Triangle Gate, but nothing was set. The Veteran Army closed out the show.
