6. Special Tag Match: Akira Tozawa, BxB Hulk⭕ (18:47 First Flash) Mr. Quu Quu Naoki Tanizaki Toyonaka Dolphin, Mr. Pii Pii Tomakomai Penguin❌
MB attacked RyoSuka after the opener. Tomakomai made the save, leading to some arguing between him & Tozawa. Mostly the same topics covered back at MEMORIAL GATE.
DK accepted a challenge from HUB for the Brave Gate.
The Veteran Army sang happy Birthday to Swann. Fujii had a present prepared for him….a Choke Slam.
Doi asked for a Triangle Gate shot with BOY & Swann, which was granted.
MB went after Penguin after the main event. Hulk took scissors to his hair. The Veteran Army made the save for some reason. Both units argued for a bit, until an All Out War 4 vs. 4 tag was set. Tozawa rejected it, saying that if they were going to really go all out, Ichikawa should also be involved to make it 5 vs. 5. Mocchy reminded Tozawa that MB currently only contains 4 members. Tozawa replied that Mocchy underestimated his overseas networking. The 5th MB member will be the returning Uhaa Nation. The Veteran Army would shocked by this, and complained about having to field Ichikawa in their group while the other side got Nation. That was more of a minus for them. In any event, the match was set up for a later date that wasn’t explicitly stated.
Before departing, Hulk challenged MochiFuji for the Twin Gate. Mocchy assumed it would be a Mondai Hulk team, and gladly accepted. Hulk informed him that his partner would not be Monchan, but Nation. Mocchy suddenly hesitated Fujii was still quick to accept. It was set for CHAMPION GATE.
Penguin gave a quick speech, saying he would recover from losing his unit, the match, and then his hair and would be acting alone for the time being.
CIMA & Team Veteran closed things out.

7. Open the Dream Gate Title Match: CIMA (20:13 Meteora) Jimmy Kanda
After the Mondai chicanery in match 3, both competitors were added to the semi-final.
Tanizaki praised Penguin for his fighting ability, and asked him how he felt about losing. Penguin admitted defeat, and tearfully said that while he had plenty of things left to accomplish in wrestling, he would abide by the rules of the match. Tanizaki agreed that the rules were the rules, however Penguin was important to the future of DG. Further, he actually had grown fond of the Toyonaka Dolphin ring name. He thought that a Dolphin & Penguin team had some potential. Penguin was humbled by the offer, but received a bicycle kick from Tozawa for his trouble. First he lost, then he cried like a baby, now he was considering teaming with the enemy? MB were done with him. Tanizaki made the save. MB were run off. Dolphin & Penguin shared a firm handshake! Tanizaki once again thanked the fans for their assistance today, but reminded them there was still one Jimmy left to fight tonight. He hoped they would give Kanda their full support in the main.
CIMA talked at length about his recent battles. He said he absolutely respected Kanda and praised him for his toughness today. CIMA wore his WORLD-C pink costume for the match. While blue is his favourite colour, it is also the colour that Kanda wears. He didn’t want a Blue vs. Blue fight. He hoped that the next time they meet, Kanda was the one who wore the pink costume. He called out anyone to challenge him. This brought out Yoshino. Yoshino barely finished his challenge when Doi came out. CIMA reminded them that they both had title matches late last year so it was a bit early for them to come at him again. Still, he didn’t duck any challenges. However, they will have to fight each other to see who gets the shot at CHAMPION GATE in Osaka. Whoever it is, Doi or Yoshino, he will beat them again. Because he is CIMA.

MB attacked Stalker after his match. Problem Dragon addressed his hometown crowd, telling them that their hero, the Problem Child of the Kimata Family…no..the International Problem Dragon had returned. He responded to their booing by assuring them a properly salty main event. CIMA came out for some arguing.
The Hero of Toki won with an actual hold for the first time since becoming Problem Dragon. It’s his old Shooting Star Press finisher.

The Jimmys, with a conservatively dressed Kong in tow, opened the show with a quick conversation about their upcoming main event & title matches. They also discussed Tanizaki winning back in Sambo to get his name back. Susumu held a microphone the whole time but didn’t say a single word.
MB attacked after the opener, and had a quick verbal battle with the Jimmys in advance of their match later.
Yoshino announced that Rich Swann would be returning to Japan for the first time since World 2012. For whatever reason, Mr. Don Fujii took exception to this. Then Kagetora came out for no reason to remind Fujii that he was the real top drinker of Dragon Gate. He began to sing a song about drinking, which gave Yagi some inspiration for a match. Swann, Fujii, & Kagetora will face off in a 3 way match next month in Korakuen. There will be 3 falls. One for wrestling, one for drinking, one for singing.
K-ness challenged Takagi to a singles match. Takagi eventually decided to accept, since he was taught to be kind to the elderly. He told K-ness that if he really wanted to go through with it, it would be the last match he ever wrestled and he would need a miracle to survive. K-ness told him that he doesn’t wait for miracles, he makes them. It was set for the March Korakuen.
Araken further provoked -akatsuki-, saying that they failed as a unit. Despite all their plans for raising up Tommy & Shenlong it was still just Takagi & YAMATO. Even Kotoka has shown more growth recently. This prompted a bit of a skirmish with Shenlong. Arai laughed this off, but admitted the masked man at least showed some spirit. He still wondered what Tommy was good for. YAMATO slapped Tominaga for no particular reason, then berated Windows & Kotoka. He told them to go back to minding the merchandise table. Kotoka stood up to him, leading to a proposal for a 6 man tag. It was also set for next month. It will be Arai, Kotoka, & X vs. YAMATO, Shenlong, & Tominaga.
The identity of X was revealed later. Windows came out after the main and told Cyber that he had one unit left to audition for. Since K-ness & himself don’t do the house show circuit, Kong could be the Windows centerpiece for those events. He invited him to join up for the match next month. Cyber agreed with a firm handshake. Hulk stopped him on the way out, telling him he was still just a useless pig who would suck no matter where he ends up.
Penguin took the microphone next. He told Tanizaki to make sure and say a proper farewell to Korakuen because this would be his last time here. He was going to be out of DG after MEMORIAL GATE on Monday. Tanizaki told him that he wasn’t taking the stipulation seriously. DG was his home, and he understood the gravity of being exiled from it.
Horiguchi lead the fans in a sing-a-long and full crowd Jimmys Train to close things out on a celebratory note.
