Welcome back to Open The Voice Gate – Rewind and Rewatch! Case (https://twitter.com/_inyourcase) and Mike (https://twitter.com/fujiiheya) are back to Rewind and Rewatch important events in Dragon System history.

Before this month’s Rewind and Rewatch, they discuss Dragongate’s weekend (or lack of it) in Kyoto with one match worth going out of your way to watch.

February’s Rewind and Rewatch celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Dragon System covers one of the key moments of Toryumon Japan: Mochizuki Contra Mochizuki from 2/24/2002. 

Before we get to that famous Lucha de Apuestas, we go all the way back to January 2000 and the aftermath of Crazy Max vs Sekigun and the formation of M2K. Case and Mike talk about Toryumon’s unit revolution and the M2K vs Crazy Max vs Toryumon Sekigun feud that enveloped Toryumon Japan from 2000 until 2002, the series of Crazy Max vs M2K apuestas matches, The First 3-Way Six Man, all building to the match that changed the careers of Masaaki Mochizuki and Susumu Mochizuki.
