Storylines

On June 28 Shingo Takagi, Gamma and YAMATO lost the Open The Triangle Gate Championship to Tozawa-Juku (Keni'chiro Arai, Taku Iwasa and Shinobu). The following day, Takagi fought BxB Hulk to a one-hour draw in a number one contender's match for CIMA's Open The Dream Gate Championship. They were immediately scheduled for a rematch on July 27, but this time the Open the Dream Gate Championship was on the line as CIMA had to vacate the championship due to a neck injury. On July 10, doubt was already cast over his standing in Real Hazard when he stopped them and Tokyo Gurentai members from trying to give CIMA an unwanted haircut. This caused tensions to stir between him and the others, especially with Cyber Kong and Cima was replaced by BxB Hulk. It also featured the Stalker Ichikawa Bosou 10 series matches. It was later announced that YAMATO, Yasushi Kanda, Gamma would defend the Open the Triangle Gate Champions against World-1 (Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino and Naoki Tanizaki) and Dragon Kid, Anthony W. Mori and PAC and Zetsurins (Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii, Magnitude Kishiwada) and Susumu Yokosuka and Ryo Saito would defend the Open The Twin Gate Championship against Tokyo Gurentai (Mazada and Nosawa Rongai) and it was also announced that Genki Horiguchi would face m.c.KZ for the vacated Open The Brave Gate Championship.

Aftermath

After Takagi defeated BxB Hulk to win the Open the Dream Gate Championship, Takagi apologized to Hulk and retracted his statement about him being weak. Soon after, Kong attempted to attack CIMA, who was at the announce table, but Takagi stopped him. After a brief argument, Real Hazard attacked Takagi and kicked Takagi out of the group for showing compassion towards Hulk and CIMA, but he was saved by Typhoon.
