UPDATE: SportsNavi reports an interesting thing happened after the Triangle Gate match on 8/14: To decide the next challengers to the title, Naruki Doi introduced a random-type determination method called “Doi Darts”, similar to the “Yoshino Lottery” that Yoshino used as Open The Dream Gate Champion. Ultimately, this resulted in Doi getting Naoki Tanisaki and Kzy as his partners for his title match challenge. That match will happen on 9/2 at Kobe Sambo Hall.
