*Team Dream Futures fail in V2. The Golden Orchid become the 9th KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

A busy day in Saitama saw Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki quickly cement their place as the strongest three-man team in DDT as they are now the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions. Even though he only began teaming with the Golden Lovers a few weeks ago, Sasaki has blended in perfectly with him even being able to perform the Lovers’ PK Heart finisher with Omega. Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi approached the new champions after the match to express a title challenge for 29th April in Korakuen Hall. Their third partner for the match? Yoshihiko! Meanwhile the new champs are busy trying to come up with a new team name. Suggestions include the Golden Orchid, the Golden Bombers and the Golden Cabaret Club.

The result of the semi-main event could be a sign that a new KO-D Openweight Champion will be crowned at the end of the month. Akito tapped out the champion KUDO with a Scorpion Triangle submission. The challener’s confidence is now sky high and he said he has a dream to become champion. KUDO accepted the mistakes he made to lose the tag match and he has nothing to fear from Akito.

Danshoku Dino successfully defended the DDT Extreme Title in a Territorial Death Match. There was an extra cameraman inside the ring while Dino and Guanchulo wrestled. While applying a pin or submission, the wrestler in control had to look at the extra camera and say “Saitama Sumaru” for the pin or submission to count. Dino’s Lip Lock knocked out both the referee and the cameraman allowing Guanchulo to take advantage. But Dino turned the tables and delivered the Danshoku Driver to win. Dino placed the belt on Guanchulo after the match as a farewell gesture.

The Infomercial Match between Antonio Honda & Kazuki Hirata involved both men having to dance to songs and advertising jingles inbetween moments of wrestling. Honda won the match and by doing so won Hirata’s Right To Challenge contract. Honda now has possession of two of those contracts which allows him two KO-D Title shots whenever he wants. Amon Tsurumi stepped in to clarify that Honda will only defend one contract at a time. So if he gets pinned while holding both contracts he will lose only one of them.

The existence of the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title continues to be under threat while Sanshiro Takagi is the champion. The 999th champion successfully defended the belt in a Battle Royal and afterward tried to retire the belt again. The belt’s creator Posion Sawada appeared and said the belt will be sealed inside an ancient Inca Empire treasure map. Intrigued by the ancient treasure, Takagi asked Sawada for more information. Sawada will only give him more info if he keeps the belt active and defend it again on 29th April.

Emi Sakura was a little frustrated over how popular her opponent Saki Akai was. She fought a little dirty in their match and was able to win with La Magistral Cradle.

6c. Ken Ohka eliminated Shuji Ishikawa and Osamu Namiguchi by Ring Out (14:32).
6d. Ken Ohka eliminated Seiya Morohashi with the Spear Of Flame (22:18).

Ganbare☆Wrestling scored a huge victory over Union proving that they are a company to be taken seriously. Ken Ohka’s plan to bombard Osamu Namiguchi with messages uring him to join his team worked out as his nemesis joined the Ganpuro side in the 6-Man Tag Elimination main event. Ohka wound up as the last man standing, pinning Seiya Morohashi to win the match. Naomi Susan told him afterwards not to get carried away that Ganpuro beat Union once. She challenged Ohka to face Shuji Ishikawa in Union on 18th May to settle the feud.

Ohka announced the creation of the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament to be held on 1st May. He wants Ganpuro to be a major sports league not just for wrestling but for martial arts as well. Richard Burn showed up to apply for the tournament and said he would quit Union to fight here.

The Judo Jacket Match between Cherry and Gorikiko was going to be so violent that Ganpuro did not want to hold it in front of a live audience. When they could not find another building to host the bout it had to go to the TEC Office in Shinjuku for permission. The two women fought around the building and Cherry eventually choked out Gorikiko to win.

Dr. Kiriko defeated Survival Tobita and afterwards tried to murder him with the same injection he used to put down J-Soul Pandita III. However the injection did not work because Tobita is human and thus immune to the poison. Tobita swore he will become a doctor and figure out a way to defeat Kiriko.

6. Akito, Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi defeated KUDO, Masa Takanashi & Yukio Sakaguchi when Akito pinned Takanashi with the Kinniku Buster (13:10).

Akito scored a big victory as he prepares for his KO-D Openweight Title match against KUDO. Akito is now using the Kinniku Buster to great effect, pinning Masa Takanashi in the main event 6-Man Tag. He was also busted open during the match. Akito said after the match that the world will become more interesting when he wins the KO-D Title from KUDO.

Two Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts changed hands on the show. Shigehiro Irie pinned Daisuke Sasaki to win his contract and Antonio Honda submitted Tetsuya Endo to win the other contract.

Keisuke Ishii presented a video of himself visiting Jun Akiyama’s dojo to challenge him to an All Asia Tag Team Titles match. In the video Ishii constantly rang the doorbell but could not get an answer. Akiyama finally opened the door with a wooden sword in his hand. The video ended with Akiyama chasing away Ishii with the sword. Back at the show Akiyama actually appeared telling Ishii and Amon Tsurumi to “Stop messing around, you bastards!” Tsurumi fell to his hands and knees apologising but Ishii again asked for another title match. Akiyama finally gave up and accepted the challenge. He and Yoshinobu Kanemaru will come to DDT on 29th April to defend the All Asia Tag Titles against Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie.

Kazuki Hirata has really gotten into pretending to be Magnum TOKYO, using his entrance music and dancing like him before and after the match.
