A boat load of Infinitys surfaced recently so I’m gonna blast through all of them now so as to not get behind.
1. Dragon Kid & Akira Tozawa vs. Gamma & Susumu Yokosuka
This match concerned me. Warriors-5 were waaaaaay too schticky for my liking here. I have no problem with Gamma being a part of the group but I don’t want the group to become a “Gamma Group” per se. They need to tone down that stuff, it really took from this match alot.
2. Akebono vs. Masaaki Mochizuki
Fun squash to get BIG BABY ‘BONO over. Mochi won’t be hurt by this whatsoever. No problemo.
3. YAMATO, Yasushi Kanda & Ryo Saito vs.
Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino & BxB Hulk
Your average good DG 6 Man with the focus on building Hulk vs. Yamato. Kanda took the fall after some Speed Muscle double team offence. Post match Doi called for a Dream Gate challenger that has never fought for the belt before. Much to his surprise, out walked Akebono. OH SHIT SON! Doi initially looked petrified but then manned up and got all up in the giants face.
What a weird title match we have on our hands.
Weaker than usual Infinity but still perfectly acceptable pro wrestling.
Infinity 127 – 6.5/10
YAMATO & Ryo Saito vs. Masaaki Mochizuki & Don Fujii
And now we’re into post-Gate Of Anniversary stuff, and on the road to the “DEAD OR ALIVE” PPV.
Fukui City Gymnasium
Cyber Kong & Yasushi Kanda vs. Naruki Doi & Naoki Tanizaki
First time I’ve ever seen DG in this building. Pretty cool looking and the crowd rules. So anyway, yeah A NAOKI TANIZAKI MATCH~!, let the greatness roll. Kong looked good being all powerhousy and Kanda was good in the general type roll for his team. Naoki sold his ass off and brought the charisma and energy. The hot tag to Doi was awesome as he’s up there with Roderick Strong when it comes to great houses of fire. Real Hazard won after a PINEAPPLE BOMBER, and a newly bald Anthony Dubyah Mori hit the ring to get him some but he was overwhelmed. The save was made by Masato Yoshino of all people, and the crowd went nutrageous.
YAMATO & Ryo Saito vs. Masato Yoshino & BxB Hulk
1. Open the Twin Gate Unified Tag Title: YAMATO & Cyber Kong (c) vs. Susumu Yokosuka & Ryo Saito
The story going into this was that Ryosuka may not have had a stable anymore, but they still had each other and they felt that was all they needed to get another run with the Twin Gate. YAMATO and Kong have been the most dominant champs in many months so they were gonna be hard to knock off. The match was as good as you’d expect when you’ve got the two best sellers in the company and two of the best heels beating their asses down. When it looked like Susumu and Ryo had things going their way, we were dealt with a huge shock. As Susumu had the pin, the referee was pulled out of the ring by RYO! The crowd gasped but the genius was that Susumu didn’t know what happened. He called his partner back into the ring for a double team. Everyone in the building but Susumu knew Ryo was dirty and then with his back turned we got this awesome visual as HEEL RYO was about to strike:
The card for Dragon Gate’s first venture into Sumo Hall is one of the most stacked wrestling cards in years. This is far and away their biggest show ever and demonstrates what great strides the company has made. Word is that the advance ticket sales have been very strong and everyone is expecting a roaring success come Sunday.
