6. No Rope No DQ: Akira Tozawa (21:33 Package German Suplex Hold) YAMATO

Rich Swann was in full Stalker cosplay today, wearing a white Ichikawa style costume.

After match two, Tozawa again complained about the rules of the main event. He said a match such as this isn’t real pro wrestling. BW doesn’t need foul play or weapons, they are their own weapon. YAMATO & Yagi weren’t moved by his speech.

PAC regained his Brave Gate belt. He was promptly challenged by Horiguchi disguised as a Metal Warrior. He said, quote, “HEY PAC! Who’s next challenger? YOU GO TO HELL!”. He also said he wouldn’t need any ridiculous 2 count rules to win.

BW once again belittled K-neSuka & AraIwa after their match. He said they showed them the difference between top level wrestlers and common trash. He then turned to Kotoka and advised him that he shouldn’t strive to be like the trash team.

KAGETORA taunted Kong after his win. He said he would do the same in Osaka, leading to Kong losing his mask. Kong told him he was an idiot, since he wouldn’t be able to win via Kagenui in the cage. He said KAGE would be the one losing, and Kong would make sure of it, Yoshida Style!

Mochizuki saved Tozawa the trouble of challenging him for the Dream Gate. Instead, he nominated Tozawa himself. It was set for Korakuen next month on 10/13.

Also made for 10/13 will be Shingo vs. Brodie Lee in a CIMA requested “True Power Fighter” decision match to find out who the most powerful man of them all is.

*JIII fail in their 3rd Defense, the Darts Team become the 33rd Champions

As has become the norm after he loses, Tozawa sneak attacked KAGETORA right after the match and gave him the Package German. CIMA went to count a mock three count, but Kid jumped in for the save….

There was a big brawl after the semi-final with KAGETORA & Tozawa jumping in with the match participants.

Gamma demanded an immediate rematch. Mochizuki had his name thrown into the challenging team. Kzy demanded that Swann also join in. It looked like it would happen at the next Sambo Hall show on 10/2, but Doi declined and made the match non-title. He also announced the next Doi Darts game would happen there. Doi Darts has its’ own t-shirt now, by the way.

But, the biggest news out of the show was the main event for GATE OF DESTINY on 10/16. It will not be a Dream Gate title match as normal. Due to all the fighting and brawling and general disorder, GM Yagi made the latest installment of the Hair vs. Mask 6 way cage match. The six participants will be: Tozawa, Hulk, Cyber, YAMATO, Takagi, KAGETORA.

*Due to the win, the “Naniwa Style” match will be renamed to “Yoshida Style”

Metal Warrior had to pull out of the opener due to “injury”. He was replaced by Kzy. However, since Kzy was not allowed to compete on this show due to losing the layoff match earlier this month, he transformed himself into Tomahawk Kzy for the night.

Kong won the early man advantage for BW in the elimination match.

Rich Swann, ever the renaissance man, performed Tonbo by Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi on the guitar, before moving into Kizudarake no Eikou for Mocchys’ entrance.

Tanizaki named PAC, the real Brave champ, as his next “challenger”. He wants the match to be contested under the same two count rules.

Saito & Horiguchi mocked both K-neSuka & AraIwa. They called K-ness broken down. Horiguchi said Arai & Iwasa peaked when they wore baggy pants, and were no threat to anyone now. They challenged them to an eight man tag. MaraIssa will team with Twin Gate champions CIMA & Ricochet. CIMA came out with this challenge. He asked Iwasa to teach him how to have such bad matches. He mocked K-ness for his constant Injury & Comeback pattern. He called them garbage. Iwasa told CIMA to shut up, and told him to put a Twin Gate shot up in this proposed 8 man. CIMA said garbage can’t wear title belts. Iwasa said he was just scared they might just lose to “garbage”. CIMA said they were about as scary as a haunted house. K-neSuka reaffirmed that they were back and would be back at the top.

Two more matches were made for the 9/16 Korakuen. Takagi & KAGETORA vs. Hulk & Cyber, and another YAMATO vs. Tozawa singles match. They have been trading wins all summer, so this looks to be the final conclusion (for 2011, anyway). Should Tozawa win, I wouldn’t be surprised if it leads to a Dream Gate challenge. A box attack & Hulk wine spray aided the win today.

YAMATO closed out the show by talking about his birthday next month. He is turning 30. He said his joints are already starting to ache a bit more than usual. He finished by saying he would proudly enter Korakuen next month as a man in his thirties.

*4th defense for Mochizuki

Hulk led a BW attack on Shingo after the semi-final. He went to cut his hair, but YAMATO & KAGETORA saved. Shingo overpowered Hulk and took the scissors to his hair.

Mochizuki went to give the customary post title match closing speech, but BW attacked again. JIII made the save. After some arguing and such, it was decided that there would be a 5 vs. 5 singles match series in Hakata Star Lanes on 10/9. It seems like it is going to be done under gauntlet rules where a wrestler will compete until he is defeated. The BW side will be CIMA, Doi, Saito, Hulk, & Tozawa. For JIII it will be Mochizuki, Yoshino, Kid, Takagi, & YAMATO.

*2nd Defense for JIII

Doi came out after the main event, to drop the bombshell he had promised. Living up to the standards set by his last huge bomb, the addition of Kenzo Suzuki to Muscle Outlaw’z, he unveiled the Doi Darts. He was inspired by the Yoshino Lottery and it’s method of randomly selected challengers. So, he produced a dart board featuring all 11 members of BW. The three he hit would be the next Triangle Gate challengers. He had two boards. The first one had himself as 95% of the spaces to make sure he got in. After himself, he hit the marks for Tanizaki & Kzy. So, on the 9/2 Kobe Sambo Hall show, Doi & Tanizaki & Kzy will get the title match.
