New ODG Champion!

Surprising results from yesterday's year ending Dragon Gate show saw CIMA lose the Open the Dragon Gate title to FM2K leader, Masaaki Mochizuki! This was CIMA's 2nd defense of the title and it shocked many that he was unsuccessfull at holding on to it after his last title reign where he lost the UDG title to Magnum Tokyo on his FIRST defense!
Also on the show, the Italian Connection successfully defended the Open the Triangle Gate trios titles against the Aagan Iisou trio of Shuji Kondo, Takuya Sugawara and "brother" YASSHI. Ugly rumours are circulating now that Kondo is considering quitting Dragon Gate!

The final big news of the show was the shocker of Kensuke Sasaki getting pinned by Dragon Kid in the big Florida Express VS DO-FIXER 8-Man Mask VS Hair match! The result was that Johnson Florida had to unmask, and Iwase, Mishima and Sasaki had to get their heads shaved!
