Poison Sawada JULIE revealed his intentions to prevent Sanshiro Takagi from retiring the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. According to Sawada he possesses an ancient lighter from the Inca Empire which can be used to burn the championship belt. When burnt, a treasure map of Arica appears on the belt’s strap. If Takagi gets his way and retires the championship he will have the belt all to himself. Sawada does not want Takagi to discover the map and go after the ancient treasure so he travelled to an old hideout and searched for a certain item to help him. Even though the cave has become desolate over the years and many of his possessions are no longer kept there, he was able to find what he wanted. S Cells! These are potions that contain the power of Snake magic. Sawada then found Antonio Honda and used the S Cells to turn him into Snake Antonio! Now under Sawada’s spell, Antonio has been ordered to defeat Takagi at all costs and become the 1000th champion!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Medical Death Match: Survival Tobita Vs Dr. Kiriko
2. Revenge Of The Tiger!: Fumihito Kihara Vs Kotaro Nasu

Two more names have been entered into the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament. Ganpuro regular Gorikiko enters representing Judo. Then there is the MMA competitor who is just going by the name of Shibata. Probably best not to get your hopes up thinking it is Katsuyori Shibata. I really doubt it’s him.

The team that wins the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Championship at Korakuen Hall will have little time to prepare for the next challengers. Shuten-dōji have already stepped up for a title shot.

Aomori Industrial Hall

1. Antonio Honda Vs Soma Takao
2. Danshoku Dino Vs Tetsuya Endo
3. Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Guanchulo Vs Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki

Antonio Honda’s placement on the cards is all assuming the snake magic will wear off by the time the shows take place and he will be back to normal by then…

Yamagata Big Wing

1. Kenny Omega Vs Guanchulo
2. HARASHIMA Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga

Sapporo Teisan Hall

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega (c) Vs KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi

Shuten-dōji are aiming to take away all of the Golden Lovers’ championships. If everything goes his way, KUDO could find himself holding all three KO-D Championships at the same time. Now that would be a drink well earned.

UNION “GOLDEN UNION IN YOKOHAMA”, 27/04/2014
Yokohama Radiant Hall

1. Idea Pocket Offer Match: Ryu Gouma & Daichi Kazato Vs Madoka & Tomoya Kawamura
2. Mio Shirai & SAGAT Vs Seiya Morohashi & Ladybeard
3. Shuji Ishikawa Vs Yumehito Imanari
4. Cherry Vs Ken Ohka
5. Isami Kodaka Vs Mitomi Masayuki
6. FUMA Vs Hikaru Sato
7. UWA World Tag Team Titles: HIROKI & Yasu Urano (c) Vs Hiroki Fukuda & MEN’s Teioh

The Idea Pocket Divas for this month are Yu Namiki & Tsubasa Amami. The winning team in the match get a double date with the Divas. Ryu Gouma is a little uncomfortable with the stipulation, believing it is a human right violation.

FUMA is looking forward to fighting Hikaru Sato. He is annoyed with Sato treating Union as a rest stop and is looking forward to beating him.

The Union Vs Ganpuro war continues with two key matches happening on this show. Cherry destroyed Ganpuro’s Gorikiko in a violent Judo Jacket Match that had to be held away from the public for safety reasons. She is pissed and wants to remind everyone that Union is more than just Shuji Ishikawa and Naomi Susan. So she steps in to challenge Ken Ohka to a match that nobody should miss. Meanwhile Shuji Ishikawa defends Union against Ohka’s second in command, Yumehito Imanari.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “~CHAPTER 2 2ND SEASON~ VOL. 2”, 01/05/2014
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Medical Death Match: Survival Tobita Vs Dr. Kiriko
2. Revenge Of The Tiger!: Fumihito Kihara Vs Kotaro Nasu

There are currently four entries in the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament: Ken Ohka (Wrestling), Glasses (Tae Kwon Do), Shota (American Wrestling) and Aki Shizuku (Amateur Wrestling). I think Glasses is Ladybeard’s friend who accompanied him when he fought as Richard Burn. Aki Shizuku is a joshi wrestler from REINA. She has amateur experience and was a runner up in the All Japan Student Championships.


DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU IN KASGOSHIMA ~DRAMATIC DREAM TENMONKAN~” Results

April 20, 2014

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU IN KASGOSHIMA ~DRAMATIC DREAM TENMONKAN~”, 20/04/2014
Oro City Hall
291 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. MIKAMI defeated Michael Nakazawa with the Ultimate Venom Stinger (8:37).
2. 3 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Danshoku Dino and Antonio Honda when Endo pinned Honda with a Moonsault (7:08).
*Tetsuya Endo wins one of Antonio Honda’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts.
3. Kiss His Ass Hole Match: Sanshiro Takagi defeated Hiroshi Fukuda when Takagi made Fukuda Kiss Danshoku Dino’s Ass Hole (7:35).
4. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano defeated Yuto Aijima & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when HARASHIMA pinned Matsunaga with the Somato (11:34).
5. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Akito & Makoto Oishi when KUDO pinned Oishi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (10:20).
6. Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao when Ibushi pinned Takao with the Sit Down Last Ride (16:30).

Today’s show was in Kota Ibushi’s home town of Kagoshima. He said when DDT returns he wants to have a title defence there.

KUDO completes a clean sweep of the weekend tour, getting the pinfall in all three of his matches. With DDT’s next show being the monthly Korakuen Hall event, the KO-D Openweight Champion is now ready for whatever Akito throws at him.

Danshoku Dino was knocked out during the 3 Way Match and his unconscious body was left lying down prone on the top turnbuckle. Sanshiro Takagi and Hiroshi Fukuda were unable to remove Dino before their match could begin so Takagi challenged Fukuda to an impromptu Kiss His Ass Hole Match. The winner would be whoever forced his opponent to kiss Dino’s ass. Fukuda was able to force Takagi to pucker up but a ref bump meant that no one was there to end the match. Takagi recovered, gave Fukuda the Sit Down Himawari Bomb and planted him nose first into Dino’s rear end to win, this time with the ref in full view.

For the entire weekend, Amon Tsurumi wanted Shigehiro Irie to cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract and challenge KUDO to a sudden KO-D Title match. Tsurumi’s reasoning was because at this time last year when Irie was champion,  Daisuke Sasaki constantly threatened to cash in his contract. Amon wanted Irie to do the same so this time he would be the bully instead of the bullied. Irie refused each night and on this show explained it is disgusting for somebody to cash in on an unexpecting opponent so he won’t be doing it that way.

Yoshihiko’s history with Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega is well known but Daisuke Sasaki doesn’t have much experience fighting the infamous DDT competitor.

Sanshiro Takagi has decided to defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title one more time but only so he can find out more about a mysterious ancient treasure that Poison Sawada told him about. Sawada promised to help if the Iron Man Title he created is kept alive.
