    Dream 5 needs to in a larger stadium than the Osaka Jo Hall.

    Yeah, but I think they’re holding it there because its Akiyamas hometown. It will be fun to see a full arena for the first time in DREAM.

    I’ve really never seen Osaka Jo Hall filled before. Those Osakans can be very picky.

    That’s true. But the Dynamite events at the dome usually gets a good amount of people. Though it feels like there’s only 5000 ppl there as they don’t know how to get excited during fights.
