Tozawa is challenging for the Dream Gate at the 9/22 show which may or may not be his sendoff so that's cool I guess.

More importantly the undefeated since his return "brother" YASSHI pinned some young boys with Nice Jamaicans and will take the Brave Gate title from Eita on that show.

triangle gate 9/4 in okinawa vs saito/horiguchi/kanda. they never tape okinawa. so it's fair to say

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jK-NcRmVcw

also another kid debuted this week, hyou watanabe. he doesn't have nearly the buzz that shun or hiro had, but odds are he's pretty solid. his debut made tape and it was 15 minutes in kobe, so that's promising.

The Jimmyz unseat Monster Express as Triangle Gate Champions. Kind of remarkable due to it being untaped in Okinawa in a show that was a joint produce with Ryukyu Dragon Pro Wrestling (Guruken Mask's promotion). MX had a remarkable, if incredibly low-key title reign. Ended 2nd in length and tied for 1st all time in defenses.

SATL wraps up on the 7th.

B Block has been finalized as Dragon Kid and Eita won the block and Osaka 06 came in second. A Block had YASSHI/Doi winning all the matches to finish first. Currently MarrahaIsappa and Yokosuka Ichoume are tied in second with Genki/Ryo holding the tiebreak. HOWEVER. The last match in the round robin is Big T (2 pts behind second) and Marilyns (0 points). If Big T wins, it's a crazy 3 way tie between them and the JImmyz Teams.

so the semi's and finals look like this:

DK/Eita vs A Block 2nd place
YASSHI/Doi vs Osaka 06.

And we are 17 days away from YAMATO vs Tozawa. You should probably get your hankies ready.

Hey, this is tomorrow at 2:00 EDT/7:00 BST. Not sure if I'll be able to watch it myself due to NJPW and the fact that Thursday is the one day I actually have to be at work on time, but it looks like a very signficant card. Not only do you have Tozawa's probable farewell match before heading to WWE but there's a full slate of fairly compelling title matches and I know DG people are very high on the young boys in the opner.

What do you folks make of the hooded figures that helped Doi to the back? I couldn't tell who either one was, but I'm guessing a new unit springing out of some of the unaffiliated roster, because right now there way more unaffiliated roster than there have been in quite some time. I could see a Speed Muscle reunion happening, and Mocchy might be content to stay solo now like Fujii, but there's also Shimizu, Kotoka, Shachi and U-T without a unit now. Unless they're taking Ben-K, Skywalker, or Watanabe without putting them through OG first. Doi leading would make sense with the booking of him losing - he couldn't do it as an independent, but he can challenge YAMATO again once he builds himself up as a leader.

Doi, Yoshino, and Ben-K seem the most likely to me as the core of a new unit, but beyond that I have no clue how things will shake out.
