Tozawa introduced the new BW at the start of the show. During the opening MC, it was decided that Cyber would replace Kzy in the main event.

Metal Warrior and Dr. Muscle intruded on match three. The good Doctor hit Tozawa with a powder attack, allowing Jimmy K. to pick up the win.

CIMA used the Venus -> Iconoclasm -> Mad Splash full course to win.

Gamma is now out of JIII. He was stretchered out after the match, due to damage to his neck during the match.

After the main, Maraha Isappa asked to be put into the Unit Disbands match. Tozawa raged once again, and said he wouldn’t dare risk having guys like them in such an important match. He then called out Warrior & Doctor for interfering in his match. They appeared in the entryway, revealing themselves to be Fujii & CIMA. They quickly vanished backstage without further incident. Mochizuki closed out the show, hyping up Susumus’ upcoming title match.

Tomahawk continued his Naoki cosplay in the dark match. Toyonaka is Tanizakis’ hometown, so this was quite the triumphant return.

Tozawa unveiled the new BW, free of that baggage CIMA. After his confrontation with Horiguchi yesterday, he moved to Saito today. He slapped him in the face and told him to follow his orders. Ryo was silent, and hung his head in shame.

Doi took over from here, and told Mochizuki that he would absolutely lose in Kyoto and be banished from JIII. Mocchy reminded Doi that Kzy was in the match and that meant he was losing. Kzy took exception to this and gave a cryptic hint that something big was going to go down in Kyoto.

Eita & Yosuke debuted real ring costumes today. They finished Kotoka with consecutive Moonsaults. They gave a brief speech promising to do well this year. Shenlong attacked them both. He said green boys aren’t allowed to give speeches, and he only lost because he had a weakling like Kotoka as a partner. He also badmouthed Tominaga.

Shenlong then attacked Tominaga after his loss, and told him nobody wanted to see him wrestle. Tomi responded by putting him in the cross armbreaker. Fujii decided that Tomi & Shenlong will meet in a singles match next month in Korakuen.

Mochizuki made Yoshino shake hands with Kong after their match. Kong gave a brief speech thanking Mochizuki for helping him, then bowed to all four sides.

Tanizaki will be out for some time due to his shoulder injury, so Tomahawk replaced him on Team Doi Darts. He wore Tanizakis’ costume and also wore a sling & back tattoo to complete the impersonation. They tried to pass him off as the real Naoki. AraKen saw through it and identified him straight away. Kzy denied it, and said AraKen was probably just drunk again.

Kzy repeatedly cheated during the match. Eventually, Referee Yagi got fed up and DQ’d him. Kzy was pleased since the belts can’t change via DQ. Yagi fired back by stripping them of the titles, since Naoki is going to miss almost 6 months. This lead to some problems between Doi & Kzy in advance of their big match in Kyoto. The Triangle Gate is now vacant.

Kong came out to interfere in the main event. He betrayed Mochizuki & JIII, but then also attacked CIMA. Tozawa & Hulk betrayed CIMA, and attacked him. They then put Kagetora on top of CIMA for the pin. CIMA is out of Blood Warriors. Hulk, Tozawa, & Kong conspired together to betray CIMA and remove him from the unit. They laughed and shared high fives after. CIMA was left laying, prompting a save from the Great Don Fujii!

Mochizuki yelled at Kong, Kong called Mocchy an old man. Tozawa said they would take the Dream back from the exiled CIMA. Horiguchi got in Tozawas’ face and questioned their actions. After some arguing, Tozawa said he wanted to cut to the chase and end JIII next month. The Yoshida Style Elimination match will return, for a 7 vs. 7 Unit Disbands match!

JIII closed out the show by mentioning that Rich Swann will be back next month, but PAC isn’t returning any e-mails.

*Second Defense for Hulk+Akira

Shenlong put the boots to Tomi after the opener. Fujii slapped him and said Tomi fought hard in the match so Shenlong had no right to attack him. Shenlong responded by saying that it was impossible to win a match with a guy like Tominaga as a partner. He said he would win the CIMA Royal and go on to win the Dream Gate…..

Shingo & YAMATO continued their differences with Cyber after their match. DK mediated a bit, but nothing was settled.

Jimmy K. promised that the Jimmyz would make waves in 2012. Gamma asked for the current problems in JIII to be resolved. DK said he is OK with Cyber joining up. Not much resolved again, although Gamma ended with some JIII promotion for the MEMORIAL GATE in Wakayama show.

Susumu earned the title shot against CIMA for 2/5 in Hakata Star Lanes.

There were a few instances of friendly fire between Mocchy & Yoshino in the main. Yoshino was upset and shoved down Mocchy afterwards. Kzy was eager to capitalize on this so he proposed another Loser Leaves Unit match. Mocchy agreed and it was set up for Kyoto on the 21st. This one will be Mochizuki, Gamma, & Yoshino vs. Kanda, Kzy, & Doi.

Naoki suffered a separated shoulder yesterday, so he will be out an indefinite amount of time. Kzy replaced him today, and said he would retire if he lost to Shenlong.

Saito reversed roles on Tozawa a bit, after back to back wins for Maraha Isappa and the loss from Tozawa yesterday. He said he hoped Tozawa could become a winner again in the main event.

Shenlong kept up his recent arrogant character by calling all of BW third rate wrestlers before once again storming off.

The 3/3 & 3/4 Osaka double header will be the first CHAMPION GATE of 2012.

Tozawa was once again abusive towards his losing stablemates, getting on Kandas’ case for taking the pin. 

With the match making rights they won in the main event, JIII chose to make two singles matches. Tozawa vs. Takagi & YAMATO vs. Hulk. The latter will be a No Rope match! Both will take place on 2/20 in Sambo Hall.

CIMA also decided to make a match. He announced the CIMA Royale, to determine his first challenger. It will be a 10 man match/battle royal. He asked for participants. Stepping up were: Susumu, Takagi, Gamma, DK, Kong, Tominaga, Shenlong, Stalker, Doi, & Kzy. It will take place on the 15th. It will have strange rules. The first 10 minutes will feature a 2 count rule. This will make it easier for the rookies to score eliminations. After the 10 minutes pass it will be regular 3 count rules. This will take place on 1/15 in Osaka.

*5th Defense for Team Doi Darts

Horiguchi told Tozawa that even with their recent losses, Maraha Isappa wasn’t dead yet. Tozawa wasn’t impressed, and simply told them to try their best.

Kong asked YAMATO for a handshake after the tag match. YAMATO refused.

The Triangle Gate match reached a climax quickly, when Shenlong hit a move eerily very similar to the Bible on Kzy for the shocking upset. The crowd erupted, but Doi protested. He insisted it wasn’t Shenlong. Indeed, CIMA & Tozawa produced the real Shenlong from backstage. Referee Yagi ejected the Shenlong cosplaying DK and ordered a new match start.

Even in defeat, Gamma was impressed enough with Shenlong that he asked fans and even the Great Don Fujii to lead another Shenlong call. Shenlong wasn’t moved. He said there was no way he could win belts with partners such as Gamma & Takagi, then stormed out.

Yoshino opened the show by wishing everyone a Happy New Year. He also brought up his back injury from Fukuoka, and apologized for having to miss the shows. BW eventually interrupted for the usual opening MC. CIMA said Yoshino looked like he was at a funeral when he was giving the New Year greeting. After some arguing, DK announced that since 2012 is the Year of the Dragon he would also make it the Year of Dragon Kid.

Fujii refused Stalkers’ rematch demands. The lights dimmed and the entrances for the next match began with Stalker still asking. Shenlong got all the way to the ring. He told Stalker his match was over and he should get out of his ring. Stalker asked him why he was out here when the prior match wasn’t over yet. He told Shenlong to leave, with the motivation that he would get to do his ring entrance a second time. Fujii eventually came back and consented to a restart.

Tozawa had some harsh words for Saito & Horiguchi after Saito took the fall in their tag. He said they didn’t have titles and they were the only BW members to fail in Fukuoka. He was starting to wonder why they were still in BW at all.

Kong asked Mocchy to let him into JIII. He apologized for the way he left last year after only a half an hour. He asked Mochizuki to help him start from scratch as a pro wrestler. Mochizuki seemed warm to the idea but the rest of JIII didn’t, Yoshino in particular.

JIII celebrated their clean sweep on the day. Tozawa lost his temper and challenged them to another Loser Leaves Unit match. No Yagi Bread involved this time. CIMA agreed, saying it was the first step to the JIII dismantling. The BW side will be CIMA, Tozawa, Hulk, and …. Saito & Horiguchi. Junction agreed but they didn’t announce their team.
