Here are the cards for the bigger shows as they stand.

1. Dragon Kid, Gamma vs, Kzy, Mondai Ryu

6. Open the Triangle Gate Title Match: Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!, Ryo “Jimmy” Saito, Naoki Tanizaki (C) vs. Akira Tozawa, BxB Hulk, Mr. Pii Pii Tomakomai Penguin
Before anyone asks about why Stalker Ichikawa is having finale match in the month of February, he typically does this every year. I don’t expect a retirement from him.
Cyber Kong continues his Road to Unit Affiliation series teaming with Team Veteran Returns.
Mochizuki and Kanda have been feuding for some time due to the issues stemming from last year when Team Veteran wanted to end The Jimmys.
I have a feeling that whoever wins the Triangle Gate, may show who is getting sent packing during the Captain’s fall match. This will also be Mr. Pii Pii’s first appearance in Dragon Gate under that name
2/7/2013 Tokyo, Korakuen Hall
1. CIMA, Gamma vs. Jimmy Kanda, Jimmy Kagetora
2. Open the Owarai Gate Title Match: Kikutaro vs. Naoki Tanizaki
3. Ultimate Bathroom Break Match: Kotoka vs. Mondai Ryu vs. Hollywood Stalker Ichikawa
4. Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii, Dragon Kid vs. Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino, Ricochet
5. K-ness, Kenichiro Arai vs. YAMATO, Shingo Takagi
6. Cyber Kong Road to Unit Affiliation ~Jimmys~: Ryo “Jimmy” Saito, Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!, Jimmy Susumu, Cyber Kong vs. Akira Tozawa, BxB Hulk, Mr. Pii Pii Tomakomai Penguin, Kzy
This show will be an Infinity taping.
CIMA and Jimmy Kanda are in typical booking to build to a world title match as they face of in Memorial Gate on the 11th.
The Owarai Gate comedy match could be entertaining. I don’t know if Tanizaki will be good in that role because I have only seen limited matches of him since joining the Jimmys. Thanks internet.
The bathroom break match is the actual match title and nothing I agree with. That match could be good.
From the previous Korakuen Hall match, the Windows-akatsuki psuedo feud continues. The match should be good hoping K-ness does not get hurt in the match.
Cyber Kong could be a good Jimmy.
2/11/2013 Wakayama, Iwade City Sougou Gymnasium Large Hall MEMORIAL GATE 2013
1. Dragon Kid, Gamma, HUB vs. Super Shisa, Super Shenlong III, Chihiro Tominaga
2. Cyber Kong vs. Hollywood Stalker Ichikawa
3. Jimmy Kagetora vs. Mondai Ryu
4. YAMATO, Shingo Takagi vs. Masato Yoshino, Shachihoko BOY
5. Open the Twin Gate Title Match: Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii vs. Naruki Doi, Ricochet
6. Jimmys vs. Mad Blankey Losing Captain Exile 4 vs. 4 Captain Fall Elimination Match: Naoki Tanizaki(c), Ryo “Jimmy” Saito, Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!!, Jimmy Susumu vs. Mr. Pii Pii Tomakomai Penguin(c), Akira Tozawa, BxB Hulk, Kzy
7. Open the Dream Gate Title Match: CIMA vs. Jimmy Kanda
Cyber Kong vs Stalker will be an enjoyable comedy match. Do not expect anything more.
TakaYama vs. World-1 International should be interesting. Glad to see Shachihoko BOY continue to be in the mix after the Open The Triangle Gate win.
MochiFujii is going for the 6th defense, they already set the record during the Kobe Sambo hall match on January 27 by beating Genki Horiguchi H.A.Gee.Mee!! and Jimmy Kanda. Naruki Doi and Ricochet have been impressive of late so this should be a close match.
The Jimmys vs Mad Blankey match was talked about during my blog about Tanizaki winning his name back. No idea who would be booted. As I said earlier, I expect the Triangle Gate match in Hakata Star Lanes to give an idea.
Kanda challenging CIMA should be good but I doubt it will be a title change. This is match two in CIMA’s title match every month campaign for 2013.
2/15/2013 Hyogo, Kobe Sambo Hall
No card announced but this will be an Infinity taping.
