6. DDT Extreme Title: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Muscle Sakai
7. Special Single Match: Kota Ibushi Vs Shuji Kondo
8. Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Hiroshi Tanahashi
9. KO-D Openweight Title – 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Kenny Omega Vs Isami Kodaka

The card for DDT’s biggest show of the year is now filled up. Due to the double KO on Sunday, HARASHIMA is still the KO-D Openweight Champion yet Kenny Omega still has a claim for a title shot. So Kenny has been added to the HARASHIMA Vs Isami Kodaka main event at Sumo Hall. I think the 3 Way match is sudden death, so HARASHIMA could lose the title without getting pinned.

Kota Ibushi is slowly recovering from the concussion he suffered earlier this month. He has begun to train again in preparation for his return at Sumo Hall. Ibushi was allowed to choose who his opponent will be. He wanted it to be someone he learned a lot from. As a joke he picked sumo wrestler Hakuho Sho, who is currently undefeated in the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament. Then he picked Sanshiro Azuma from a manga called Fighting Detectives. Ibushi finally gave a serious answer and decided Shuji Kondo from WRESTLE-1 will be his opponent. Ibushi and Kondo had matches together in dragondoor and El Dorado during 2005 and 2006. They last fought each other at the 2011 “ALL TOGETHER” show. Ibushi believes he developed his style because of his matches with Kondo.

LiLiCo and the Up Up Girls are some of the musical guests appearing on the show.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Kenny Omega ended in a Double Knockout (19:27).
*V2 for HARASHIMA. Kenny Omega cashed in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

In one month’s time DDT returns to Sumo Hall for its biggest show of the year but after today’s show the main event has been altered. Kenny Omega cashed in his Right To Challenge Contract today and faced HARASHIMA for the KO-D Championship. Sumo Hall main eventer Isami Kodaka was at the timekeeper’s table to see who he will soon fight for the title. Both champion and challenger destroyed each other and at one point HARASHIMA delivered the Reverse Frankensteiner from the apron to the floor! Omega later came close to victory with the Croyt’s Wrath. The two then traded Somatos and Jumping Knee Strikes until they were both knocked out. Yukinori Matsui counted both of them out and ruled the match a draw.

harashima-kenny-ko

The draw officially counts as a successful defence for HARASHIMA and Amon Tsurumi declared the Sumo Hall main event will be HARASHIMA Vs Isama Kodaka for the KO-D Title. However, HARASHIMA wasn’t satisfied with the result and wanted another match with Kenny. Kodaka stepped in and said he wanted to face both HARASHIMA and Omega. Everybody came to the conclusion that the Sumo Hall main event will now be a 3 Way match for the title. HARASHIMA Vs Isami Kodaka Vs Kenny Omega!

At the end of the show Sanshiro Takagi invited the entire roster into the ring and announced tickets for Sumo Hall were selling out. Takagi got everybody in the ring to chant “Sell! Sell! Sell!” The fans joined in but Takagi interrupted them and said they should be chanting “Buy! Buy! Buy!”

trios3way

Happy Motel’s reign as KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions was short lived, which is a running theme for this title’s entire existence. The belts were on the line in a 3 Way Trios match with no tag rules in effect. Happy Motel, Team Dream Futures and Shuten-dōji went at it until Masa Takanashi countered Tetsuya Endo’s Torture Bomb into the Takatonic for the three count. Since Drift were not involved with the result, Tsurumi decided that they will get the next title shot at Sumo Hall.

sakai-dino

Before Match #4 began, Danshoku Dino asked if he was going to defend the DDT Extreme Title at Sumo Hall. He got no answer and treated today’s 8-Man Tag bout as a throwaway match. Super Sasadango Machine got the pin and was happy to challenge Dino to a title match. He set up a powerpoint presentation to explain his challenge but Dino interrupted and said he will not fight him. Instead he wants to fight Muscle Sakai! Amon Tsurumi told Dino that Sakai is retired and currently working at his family’s business in Niigata. Machine left the ring and Sakai’s music suddenly played over the speakers. Suddenly Sakai appeared! He was crying with joy and said that even though he retired, he secretly visited Korakuen Hall in disguise every month to watch DDT. He accepted Dino’s challenge and it was made official by Tsurumi.

ddt-amigos

Since Kota Ibushi’s 10th Anniversary Match no longer involved Kota Ibushi, the 6-Man Tag Team bout was changed into a Lucha Libre Rules match. Taiji Ishimori got into the spirit of things with Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi. Ishimori afterwards said he enjoyed wrestling with them.

mikami-gentaro

GENTARO was very disappointed by MIKAMI for tapping out to a Headlock in their tag team match. He questioned if MIKAMI was not motivated anymore and was insulted because he himself went through a lot in order to wrestle again. Even if GENTARO is not the wrestler he used to be he still wrestles because it makes him happy. Yasu Urano told GENTARO to ignore MIKAMI. He said they won the match and shouldn’t have to worry about MIKAMI’s decline. GENTARO slapped Urano and said he isn’t like MIKAMI. “MIKAMI is a guy, dude!” As a result of this, GENTARO & MIKAMI will face Yasu Urano & Akito at Sumo Hall.

There were some announcements regarding DDT’s plans for the near future. The big one of course was their goal of going to the Saitama Super Arena next year. Sanshiro Takagi announced that DDT will be in the Saitama Super Arena Community Arena on 15th February, 2015. The Community Arena is a smaller section within the Super Arena territory but Takagi believes it is big enough to draw 5,000 fans. He also wants DDT to hold two major shows every year. The plan is for February and August to be when the major shows will take place.

The annual DDT48 General Election will now be replaced with a new election based on the different stables in DDT. For now it is called the DDT Dramatic General Election. It will take place from 31st August to 28th September.

Kota Ibushi apologised for being unable to compete on the show. He promised to be crazier than ever when he returns to “perfect condition”. He will have a singles match at Sumo Hall but his opponent is currently to be decided.

KUDO, Danshoku Dino and DJ Nira are the latest DDT wrestlers to get gender swapped characters for the Ring☆Dream online card game. DDT will also be collaborating with the Powerpuff Girls TV show for a t-shirt that will be available at Sumo Hall.


UNION “SEE YOU AT KITASENJU” Results

UNION “SEE YOU AT KITASENJU”, 19/07/2014
Kitasenju Theatre 1010
123 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. SAGAT, Menso~re Oyaji & Goro Jr. defeated Seiya Morohashi, Tomoya Kawamura & Ryu Gouma when SAGAT pinned Kawamura with the Gore Grind (10:17).
2. Ladybeard & Kaori Yoneyama defeated Cherry & Mio Shirai when Ladybeard pinned Shirai with the Nut Cracker (7:08).
3. MEN’S Teioh defeated Mitomi Masayuki with the Spinning Toe Hold (10:49).
4. World Men’s Club Cup – FIFA Rules: Hiroshi Fukuda defeated Choun-Shiryu with a Gedo Clutch (7:17).
5. Shuji Ishikawa defeated Shibata with the Running Kneelift (7:07).
6. Hikaru Sato defeated Daichi Kazato by Referee Stoppage after Kazato suffered a foot injury (6:36).
7. Isami Kodaka defeated FUMA with the Zan Isamu Leg (17:18).

Hikaru Sato sent a message to Shuji Ishikawa by intentionally injuring Daichi Kazato. Sato targeted Kazato’s left knee and had a bitter smile on his face while applying a Necklock. Kazato couldn’t continue and the ref stopped the match. Sato was still smiling as Kazato was helped out of the ring while holding his knee in agony.

Hiroshi Fukuda Vs Choun-Shiryu for the World Men’s Club Cup took place under the same rule set used by FIFA for their World Cup games. Handballs were illegal which meant both Fukuda and Shiryu were forced to wrestle with their hands tied behind their backs. Fukuda was able to pin Shiryu with the Gedo Clutch after some shenanigans involving the referee constantly fainting. After the match Fukuda swapped his baggy pants with Shiryu’s New Beijing T-shirt in accordance with the Fair Play rules but Shiryu kicked him and laid him out with the Gory Special Bomb.

Ladybeard pinned Mio Shirai, giving him momentum for their upcoming Fly To Everywhere Title Match on 31st August. Ladybeard was feeling positive about his performance and hopes he and Mio will both do their best. His way of wrestling is strong and he does not have the weaknesses Cherry has.

FUMA, Daichi Kazato, SAGAT, Mitomi Masayuki and Tomoya Kawamura will all compete at the DDT “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2014” show on 17th August.

4 Way Falls Count Anywhere Tag Team Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai defeated HARASHIMA & Akito, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi and Daisuke Sasaki & Gota Ihashi when Kasai pinned Ihashi with the Pearl Harbour Splash from a ladder through a table (28:35)

For the second year in a row DDT held a Falls Count Anywhere match at the HandMade In Japan Festival in Tokyo. Sanshiro Takagi brought along Jun Kasai to prepare for their big tag team match at “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2014”. Today they went against three other teams in a big free for all that took place during the convention. Takagi & Kasai were able to win thanks to a custom bicycle they found that was made to look like a Sentai Bike. After the match Takagi said that the bicycle may be the weapon they need to beat Minoru Suzuki & Michael Nakazawa at Sumo Hall.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Danshoku Dino Vs Shunma Katsumata
2. 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA Vs Yasu Urano Vs Akito

My favourite time of the year on the DDT calender is Beer Garden week. This is where DDT’s roster are at their most creative because they get to make the matches. So far we have ghost stories, a 5 Way Ladder match, some boxing, the return of Ultimate Superstars Action and a Smile Squash Triple Threat to look forward to. Unfortunately there is no more Lariat Pro Wrestling but in it’s place we get Knee Pro Wrestling. So expect the Boma Ye and Busaiku Knee Kick to be used a lot. There are two shows that have yet to have any matches booked for it. They are the first and final days of the series.

Today is the 4th year of this website’s existence. Thanks to everyone who follows along no matter if you were here from the beginning or just found it the one time it was linked on Cracked.

Shibata has called himself the John Cena of Pancrase. I honestly don’t know how to react to that.

Inspired by his nation’s performance in this years World Cup, real American Hiroshi Fukuda has created the World Men’s Club Cup so he can lift the spirits of his fellow Americans and win what their team could not. Fukuda wants to take on the world and his challenge was quickly accepted by China’s Choun-Shiryu.
