Yoshino won the KING OF CHOP Grand Championship via fan decision in a 3 way contest with Kagetora & Tanisaki. Eita chose not to return to Japan for the finals.
MB attacked Kong after his match. They added taunts and Problem Dragon called him a shitty gorilla.
Mochizuki & Fuji set a new defense record for the Twin Gate. Mocchy bragged about it a bit before turning to Kanda. He said he would beat his ass in their singles match in Hakata next weekend, leaving him in no shape to challenge for the Dream Gate. W1 came out at this point. Doi asked Mocchy if he watched Gaora last night. They showed the 1/17 Korakuen show, where the Die Fly put Mochizuki away on his own birthday. Doi & Ricochet wanted a Twin Gate shot. Both sides agreed, and the match was set for MEMORIAL GATE.
After the illicit methods used by Tanisaki to win the match, it was restarted. QQ won the restart, regaining his rightful name. He will once again compete as Naoki Tanizaki. He also earned the right to name the impostor. Back at Dangerous Gate, Tanisaki told him he resembled a dolphin when he cried. Well, he thinks he looks like a penguin. He is a Tomakomai native. The sound penguins make when they cry is piiiiiii piiiiiii. So he will be Mr. Pii Pii Tomakomai Penguin! Tomakomai took the name surprisingly well, and demanded another match. They bantered back and forth, with the exile stipulation being placed on Tomakomai in a potential rematch. Before anything could be officially set, a huge brawl broke out between MB & the Jimmys. Yagi put everyone in their place, and said if they want to fight and put jobs on the line, then he would do it for them. At MEMORIAL GATE will be a 4 vs. 4 Captains Fall Elimination match. Team captains will be Tanizaki & Tomakomai. The captain of the losing team will be exiled from Dragon Gate.
Tomakomai accepted the terms and said this feud would have a perfect conclusion. Tanizaki closed out the show with a speech thanking his teammates and the fans for supporting him in his quest to regain his identity.

6. Open the Dream Gate Title Match: CIMA (24:47 Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex Hold) Ryo “Jimmy” Saito
*10th Defense for CIMA
CIMA & Saito had the contract signing for the title match before the opener. Saito said he would use all his strength to topple CIMA and once again become Dream Gate champion, not just for himself, but for the Jimmys as well. CIMA praised his spirit, and said he was looking forward to the hot fighting.
The two day series in Osaka on 3/2 & 3 will be a CHAMPION GATE event.
Problem Dragon abused and yelled at the Osaka fans before his match. He figured the out of touch community had not watched the PRIME ZONE so he reiterated his declaration of being the International Problem Dragon. He promised to show a wonderful display of terrible wrestling tonight.
After beating W1i, Hulk boasted that the true power of MAD BLANKEY was on display, and that they would dominate 2013. Tanisaki told him he forgot to mention the important bout next week in Sambo, where the imposter Naoki would finally be exiled from the company. This brought Dolphin to the ring. He said that Tanisaki has spent so much time thinking about exiling him, that he probably has not spent much time considering his new ring name after he is defeated. They continued to bicker and had a slap fight. Tanisaki then brought up the Triangle Gate. Once Dolphin was gone, the champion team would no longer exist. Somehow, this brought Cyber Kong into the mix. He seemed to imply that he would gladly take Dolphins’ place. Hulk told him to get his stupid pig ass out of the ring, and said he really had no interest in ever fighting Kong again. MB quickly left. Horiguchi was also less then kind and told him that he had nothing to do with the Jimmys. Horiguchi then thanked the Osaka faithful for coming out, and urged them to cheer for Saito in the main event.
After the main event, CIMA went to give his customary speech. He talked about the hot fighting today, and the wonderful feeling he got from the match with Horiguchi last year. He continued on but was cut off by a John Woo from Kanda. That was his way of making a challenge to the Dream Gate. He said that while CIMA was a star athlete and he was like someone who pulls weeds for a living, he would win the title. CIMA said that all that really did was make Kanda look like he suffered from a lack of training. In any case, he couldn’t recall a high profile singles match with Kanda. He looked forward to the challenge and asked Yagi to make it official. It was set for MEMORIAL GATE in Wakayama on 2/11. CIMA asked Fujii to write him an in depth strategy guide for how to deal with Candy. CIMA vowed to make it to CHAMPION GATE as champ, where there would be more hot fighting.

Don Fujii was pulled from the show at the latest minute for various reasons.
Kong seemed to know he didn’t do enough in the title match to win, so he made a last ditch effort via pseudo stand up comedy. He talked about eating a lot of desserts around the New Year, and admitted to having a huge sweet tooth. Kikutaro was shocked he won, and welcomed a rematch at any time. Kong was undeterred and announced he would replace Fujii in his tag match.
After that match, he thanked the fans for their continued support. He brought up Ichikawa & Kotoka and how they are generally very bad wrestlers. He asked Mochizuki what could they possibly do about this. Mocchy admitted that Problem Dragon was a world class level of terrible, but for the other two he just noted that a lot of his friends used their matches for a bathroom break. It was decided that Mondai vs. Kotoka vs. Ichikawa would take place in the February Korakuen, with Ultimate Bathroom Break rules. Fans are welcome to use the facilities, take a smoke break, return phone calls, stretch their legs, or whatever other activities they would normally hold off on while there are interesting wrestlers in the ring.
HUB gave a quick speech, talking about repaying his debt to Kagetora for the loss back in December. He promised to be on offensive in 2013.
Windows celebrated their clean sweep. Arai knew that people would be calling it a fluke, so he challenged TakaYAMA to a tag match next month. Takagi refused, and told them to go back to fighting their friends in dark matches. Yagi reminded Takagi that someone who just got beat was probably in no position to refuse a challenge. YAMATO said that the “New Years Dream” only happened once a year, and things would be different next month. The match was set.
MB kept up the attack on the Jimmys after the main event, prompting a save by Cyber Kong. He asked them Jimmys to allow him to team with them to take out MAD BLANKEY. Horiguchi agreed, to the shock of the audience. Both sides agreed to an 8 man tag next month. Horiguchi even invited Kong to join in on the Jimmys Train celebration, but he declined. He said he would not dance today because of his Road to Unit Affiliation series, but he would gladly take part next month….
The Jimmys did the Jimmy Train anyway to close things out.

Dolphin & Tanisaki bickered in advance of their upcoming match. Dolphin promised to return to Nagoya as both Naoki Tanizaki and as Brave Gate champion.
Kong was once again comedic and humble. He deeply thanked all the fans for buying tickets today. He hoped to be a strong assistant to his partners today, and hoped CIMA, FUjii, & Mochizuki would teach him the art of pro wrestling. Mochizuki, having heard that request several times in the past only to be immediately betrayed, was not into the idea. CIMA was not pleased at being called CIMA-kun and also declined.
After the match, he still thanked them for a good pro wrestling lesson. He was happy to have teamed with YAMATO & Takagi after a long time and called them the best teammates. Still, he had some other units to check out so he didn’t want to accept membership to -akatsuki- yet. YAMATO noted that they never offered it….

Shisa delivered a message to -akatsuki- from K-ness & Arai. They were planning on giving them a special New Year gift. Defeat.
MB attacked after the 4th match. Tanisaki told CIMA to abandon his defense against someone as 3rd rate as Saito and give him a title shot instead. That way he could stop this whole ridiculous 12 defense idea right away. This lead to some arguing with QQ. He wanted his name back…again. Tanisaki was willing to put the ringname up again, but if he beats him again, QQ is gone from Dragon Gate forever. Yagi set the match for 1/27 in Sambo Hall.
Kong apologized for losing, and thanked DoiYoshi for the chance to team with them. He said he could see himself as a W1 member but he still had a few units to team with so he wasn’t going to join just yet. He energetically walked away. Doi & Yoshino were confused by the whole ordeal, and told the fans to continue supporting WORLD-1 International efforts in 2013.
