1. Madoka & Kurumi defeated Cherry & Seiya Morohashi when Madoka pinned Cherry with the Ranhei (9:05).
2. 3 Way Match: Miyako Matsumoto defeated Ryu Gouma and Goro Jr. when Matsumoto pinned Gouma with the Kyoto Clutch (6:50).

5. UWA World Tag Team Titles: Isami Kodaka & FUMA (c) defeated Shuji Ishikawa & SAGAT when Kodaka pinned SAGAT with the Zan Isamu Leg (10:21).
*V1 for Isami Kodaka & FUMA.
6. Union MAX Title: Hikaru Sato (c) defeated Daichi Kazato by Referee Stoppage with the Shoulder Lock (26:13).
*V3 for Hikaru Sato.

Union’s latest hopes of getting back the Union MAX Title rested on the shoulders of Daichi Kazato. The low card wrestler stepped up to the plate and challenged Hikaru Sato to a title match in Koyama. Kazato had the crowd on his side as he was showered in streamers during the ring introductions. Despite lasting over 25 minutes with the champion, his arm and shoulder was worn down to the point where Sato could use his submissions to great effect. The match had to be stopped when Sato caught Kazato on a dive and trapped him in the Shoulder Lock for the victory. Sato shook Kazato’s hand after the match but then threw him out of the ring with force. He asked Kazato if that was all the hard work he could do and that he stunk as a wrestler. Sato and Shibata then challenged Isami Kodaka & FUMA to a UWA World Tag Team Titles match.

Shuji Ishikawa was disappointed he couldn’t win the UWA Tag Team Titles with SAGAT. He wanted it to happen because they are the only two heavyweights in Union. SAGAT apologised to Ishikawa and promised they will win next time.

MEN’S Teioh gave Hiroshi Fukuda a taste of the Royal Road by using the Neckbreaker Drop to beat him. Fukuda thanked Teioh for everything he taught him during their time together as a team. Fukuda will have one more match in Union before he leaves for All Japan.

One day after HARASHIMA defended the KO-D Openweight Title against Keisuke Ishii, the tables were turned. Team Dream Futures kept the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles away from Smile Squash. Now that Squash is no longer in title contention, things may cool down between Yasu Urano and Shigehiro Irie. Drift’s next title defence will be against T2Hide at the 28th September Korakuen Hall show.

*V2 for Danshoku Dino.
7. Kota Ibushi 10th Anniversary Debut Match: Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega defeated Michael Nakazawa & Yoshihiko when Ibushi pinned Nakazawa with the PK Heart (17:59).
8. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Somato (20:31).
*V4 for HARASHIMA.

HARASHIMA’s dominance continues. The KO-D Openweight Champion defeated Keisuke Ishii in Osaka to mark his 4th successful defence of the belt (and his 10th in the space of a year). Ishii got his title shot after winning a young wrestlers tournament intended to promote new blood for the title chase. HARASHIMA admitted he did not expect Ishii to have improved to the level he was but HARASHIMA was still stronger. The champ’s next defence will be in Korakuen Hall on 26th October against the runner up of the DDT Dramatic General Election. HARASHIMA doesn’t mind who it is as long as he finishes the election in first place. If he finishes second he gets to choose his challenger.

The last match in Kota Ibushi’s 10th anniversary celebration finally took place. Ibushi teamed with Kenny Omega to take on Michael Nakazawa and Yoshihiko who transformed into Ibushihiko for the occasion. Nakazawa congratulated Ibushi on his 10 years in wrestling but pointed out that he’s been through so many injuries that he’s really only been wrestling for around 8 years. Nakazawa then said Ibushihiko is the one who should have the double contract with DDT and New Japan. During the match, Ibushihiko was thrown on top of a nearby basketball hoop by Omega.

Danshoku Dino Vs Zeus for the DDT Extreme Title was fought in a Kiss Pin Match where a pin or submission would only count if the wrestlers were kissing each other as it happened. Surprisingly Zeus was not fazed at all when the rules were explained to him. Dino needed all the help he could get from Makoto Oishi and Shunma Katsumata. His two cornermen interfered in the match but were both overpowered by Zeus. The challenger even threatened to kiss the referee! Sino then summoned Shun Miyatake (Trainee) to help him and eventually the distractions were enough for Dino to pin Zeus with a kiss. After the match Zeus linked arms with Yukinori Matsui and said “a nice couple is born in Osaka!”

Tetsuya Endo scored the upset pin on KUDO to win himself and Konosuke Takeshita a KO-D Tag Team Title shot on 28th September. Later in the show Takeshita & Endo confronted the Golden Lovers to confirm the match. Endo spoke about his match with Kenny Omega during Beer Garden Week and also the 30 minute draw between both teams that took place back in January. Omeg said the Golden Lovers would have won in the 31st minute if the match continued. He also said if Endo scored 110 points with his best effort then he would need to score more than 150 points to succeed. He then asked Tsurumi to give the title match a 60 minute time limit to make sure another draw won’t happen.

Kazuki Hirata appealed for T2Hide to get a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title shot after they won the opening match. Amon Tsurumi said he would positively consider it.

Next year’s big show in Saitama Super Arena will be called “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015”.

UNION, OZ ACADEMY, WAVE, ICE RIBBON “M.I.O”, 11/09/2014
Shinjuku FACE
323 Fans

1. Close 3 Way Match: Mio Shirai defeated Tsukasa Fujimoto and Misaki Ohata when Shirai pinned both Fujimoto and Ohata with a Double Cradle (6:31).
2. Cat Vs Scallops: Neko Nitta defeated Mika Iida with the Ne Kohisutoraru (10:57).
3. Glistening Mixed Match: Hamuko Hoshi & Hiroshi Fukuda defeated Yumi Ohka & Mitomi Masayuki when Fukuda pinned Masayuki with a School Boy (13:14).
4. Heavy Match: Dynamite Kasai & Aja Kong defeated Shuji Ishikawa & SAGAT when Kong pinned SAGAT with the Backfist (12:37).
5. Barbed Wire Board Death Match: Mayumi Ozaki, Shu Shibutani & Yuko Miyamoto defeated Mio Shirai, Maki Narumiya & Isami Kodaka when Ozaki pinned Shirai with the Diving Rolling Senton through lighttubes (23:35).

Today was all about Mio Shirai. The new Fly To Everywhere Champion brought together the four companies she is under contract with to joint host an event highlighted by a mixed gender Barbed Wire Board Death Match. Shirai teamed with Isami Kodaka and Maki Narumiya to face Yuko Miyamoto, Mayumi Ozaki and Shu Shibutani in a match that featured light tubes, a football, a guide light, a paddle, a chain, and a whip as well as the aforementioned barbed wire boards. Shirai’s face wound up becoming a crimson mask but Narumiya probably took the worst bump, Miyamoto gave her the Fire Thunder Driver through a table. Despite the violence, Shirai and Ozaki joked with each other after the match. Shirai thanked each of the wrestlers and said she wanted to show everywone how awesome Union, Oz Academy, WAVE and Ice Ribbon all are.

Hiroshi Fukuda complained about having to team with Hamuko Hoshi instead of Yumi Ohka before their tag team match. When Ohka rejected his advances after the match and kicked him away, he called her an old hag and ran off.

Shirai wrestled twice on the show, competing in the opening match as well as the main event. The opener was a 3 Way match between Shirai and her two WAVE partners, Tsukasa Fujimoto and Misaki Ohata. The bout could be won by either pinfall, submission or throwing an opponent over the top rope and out of the ring. In WAVE the three women often use a football, a guide light and a pole as foreign objects. So it was no surpise that they used the weapons on each other. Shirai snuck away with the win when she cut into a series of nearfalls between the other two and pinned them at the same time.

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao (c) Vs HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Akito

There are two stories revolving around the main event of this show. First is the rivalry brewing between HARASHIMA and Keisuke Ishii. This show takes place a day after the KO-D Openweight Title match between the two wrestlers. The second is Shigehiro Irie and Yasu Urano feuding over the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Urano has twice attempted to steal Irie’s title belt after matches involving the two. Now he has a chance to get that belt through proper means.

UNION “UNION HARVEST FESTIVAL 2014”, 15/09/2014
Koyama Municipal Cultural Centre

1. Cherry & Seiya Morohashi Vs Madoka & Kurumi
2. 3 Way Match: Miyako Matsumoto Vs Ryu Gouma Vs Goro Jr.

5. UWA World Tag Team Titles: Isami Kodaka & FUMA (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & SAGAT
6. Union MAX Title: Hikaru Sato (c) Vs Daichi Kazato

Looks like the UWA Tag Team Titles are going to stay in Union for a while, regardless of who wins the title match. If there are any other UWA championships lying about I think Ganbare☆Wrestling would appreciate borrowing one.

1. 4 Way Match: Antonio Honda defeated MIKAMI, Michael Nakazawa and Yukio Sakaguchi when Honda pinned Nakazawa with the Diving Fist Drop (9:36).
2. Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Azul Dragon (w/ Van Vert Jack) defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Van Vert Negro when Dino pinned Negro with the Danshoku Driver (10:10).

4. KUDO defeated Tetsuya Endo by Knockout with a Back Spin Kick (10:46).
5. Kota Ibushi & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Yuto Aijima & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Ibushi pinned Matsunaga with the Sit Down Last Ride (12:41).
6. HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Akito defeated Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao when HARASHIMA pinned Takao with the Somato (20:08).

HARASHIMA and Keisuke Ishii had a staredown after the main event but that was interrupted by a brawl outside the ring between Yasu Urano and Shigehiro Irie. Urano tried to steal Irie’s KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title belt again.

In a week’s time Happy Motel and Shuten-dōji will collide over the No. 1 Contendership for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Today the two teams were split off into two singles matches. Masa Takanashi beat Konosuke Takeshita with a flash pin, teaching a valuable lesson to the youngster to never keep his guard down. Takanashi’s tag partner KUDO went to much harsher measures to defeat Tetsuya Endo, knocking him out with a Back Spin Kick. After the two matches were over, Takanashi bragged that he and KUDO are stronger and the rookies don’t look like they are the future of DDT. KUDO said he was going to drink some delicious sake to celebrate his win today.

Van Vert Jack betrayed Van Vert Negro and his team by revealing he was wearing Danshoku tights beneath his clothes. He then Hip Thrusted Negro into the corner post, leaving him vulnerable for Danshoku Dino to deliver the Danshoku Driver. Van Vert Jack is Van Vert Negro’s 9 year old son by the way.
