Dragon Gate 7/3 Results

TAKA Michinoku failed in his bid to become the first Jr. Four-Crown champion as he was beaten by Masaaki Mochizuki. In a strange twist, Mochi challenged TAKA to a rematch, but with TAKA's triple Jr. titles on the line instead! Mochi also nominated Susumu Yokosuka again as challenger to his Dream Gate title in the future.
Blood Generation won the Triangle Gate trios titles off long running champions Do-Fixer. So the question now is, where do Do-Fixer go from here? Ryo Saito has shown alot of improvement since the start of the year, but Genki Horiguchi continues to be held down while Dragon Kid is also said to be having a bad year, and they only seem to break out when in these six man tag matches.
Magnum TOKYO dropped the fall in his big tag match with Tenryu when Sasaki pinned him with the Northern Lights Bomb. But Tenryu dancing with him during the intro alone is reason enough to watch this show!

Results from the show:

Open the Dream Gate Title Match: Masaaki Mochizuki defeated TAKA Michinoku in 25:25 with a Shin Saikyo High Kick.

It was also announced during the show that Dragon Gate would be starting a partnership with AAA in Mexico, where both sides will work together and trade talent. This isn't a good thing I hear since AAA is said to be really bad work rate-wise (I can believe this since I've actually seen them in action) and the reason for this is because DragonDoor, their rival promotion being started up by Ultimo Dragon I believe, is doing the same thing, but with AAA's competitors, CMLL.

They also announced a new theme CD will be coming out in September, and I say it's about time and hopefully it includes the much sought after CIMA "I Like Cola" and Magnum TOKYO "Mr. Egoist" themes.
