Primal Gate 2012
1/19/12 Tokyo, Korakuen Hall
1) Eita Kobayashi, Yosuke Watanabe Vs Kotoka, Super Shenlong
WINNER: Kobayashi via Moonsault Press at 6:54
Kobayashi and Watanbe debuted in actual costumes for this match (marking their graduation of sorts from rookies to jobbers). After the match, Shenlong attacked both Kobayashi and Watanabe and then the downed Kotoka. Shenlong also got on the mic and stated that he could have won if he didnt have such a horrible partner. He also badmouthed Tominaga. I personally like this recent heelish Shenlong and hope it develops into something more than “let me pick on the rookies”. I do feel kinda bad for Kotoka as it looks like he has slid down in the hiearchy of Dragon Gate (he debuted way before any of these three new rookies and is now jobbing to them).
2) New Year Challenging Match: Don Fujii Vs Chihiro Tominaga
WINNER: Fujii via HIMEI at 6:41
After the match Shenlong attacked Tominaga but was put into the cross armbreaker by the rookie, before running away. Fujii decided to make a match between Tominaga and Shenlong for next month at Korakuen which the crowd supported.
4) Masato Yoshino, Gamma Vs Masaaki Mochizuki, Cyber Kong
WINNER: Yoshino over Kong via Sol Naciente Kai at 14:16
After the match Mochizuki forced Yoshino to shake Cyber Kong’s hand. Cyber then gave a little speech thanking Mochi for his support during his “rebuilding” period. He also thanked the crowd for their support before leaving.
5) Open the Triangle Gate Championship Match: Naruki Doi, Tomahawk T.T, Kzy (C) Vs K-Ness, Taku Iwasa, Kenichiro Arai
WINNER: K-Ness team via DQ against Kzy at 17:39
Naoki Tanizaki was hurt from the last show and Tomahawk T.T. decided to take his place. During the match Kzy continuingly pulled off some illegal moves until finally he was Dqd by referee Yagi. Kzy didnt care because that meant Blood Warriors still kept the title, but Yagi decided to strip Blood Warriors of the titles considering one of their members, Naoki, wouldnt be able to properly defend the titles for six months. This pissed off Doi (as it is techncially his team) and lead to a shoving match with Kzy.
6) Blood Warriors Vs Junction Three: Loser Leaves Unit Match: YAMATO, Shingo Takagi, Dragon Kid, Jimmi Susumu, Jimmi KAGETORA Vs CIMA,Akira Tozawa,BxB Hulk,Ryo Saito, Genki Horiguchi
WINNER: KAGETORA over CIMA after BxB Hulk’s first Flash at 32:13 to force CIMA out of Blood Warriors.
In a shocking turn of events Cyber Kong came out during the match and ATTACKED Mochizuki but after he did that he then attacked..CIMA!!! Tozawa and Hulk started to stop Kong but then they joined in and attacked CIMA as well!!!! This resulted in BxB hitting CIMA with the First Flash and the pinfall. Kong, Tozawa and BxB then berated CIMA before stomping on him. CIMA was then saved by old friend Fujii! Mochi got into a fight with Kong for the betrayal and Tozawa got on the mic saying he was going to take the Dream Gate title from CIMA, as he was carried to the back by Fujii. Tozawa also laid out a challenge to Junction Three for a 7 on 7 unit disbanding match next month at Korkauen hall! Mochi accepted the challenge, while Genki and Saito got into Tozawa’s face about the betrayal. So it should be interesting to see what memebers represent each unit for next months match.
