Yokohama Radiant Hall
202 Fans – No Vacancy

6. Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Abdullah Kobayashi, Masaya Takahashi & Takayuki Ueki (c) defeated FUMA, Madoka & Yusuke Kubo when Kobayashi pinned Kubo with the Diving Bakachinga Elbow (17:27).
*V1 for Abdullah Kobayashi, Masaya Takahashi & Takayuki Ueki.

The chairman of the Yokohama Shopping Street Federation that sponsors the Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles was pleased with the main event. He described it as pure pro wrestling at its very best, which is very good. FUMA said Abdullah Kobayashi’s bald head reminds him of Rob Halford from Judas Priest and Piet Sielck from Iron Savior. Kobayashi didn’t know who they were and asked if they are Japanese. FUMA then apologised to the fans for IRON PRIEST’s failure to win the titles. He said IRON PRIEST will impregnate the pro wrestling world with heavy metal. “Thorns and chains to the soft heart! KEEP ON ROCKIN’ Heavy Metal Anthem! We are IRON PRIEST!”

SAGAT was focused on beating Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi in the Hardcore Tag Match but it was not meant to be. Hiroshi stopped the Goregrind with a Spinebuster onto a Ladder. The Perfect Plex afterwards was the end for SAGAT. Hiroshi rubbed in his victory by saying how fun it is to wrestle in a variety of matches. He then challenged SAGAT to a singles match on 30th August. However Takumi Tsukamoto stepped in and demanded to be in the match too. It was decided that a 3 Way Match will take place instead.


DDT Dramatic General Election 2016

August 19, 2016

As soon as “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016” is over and done with DDT will move onto the annual DDT Dramatic General Election. This is the 7th year the competition is happening in some form, originally called the DDT48 General Election when it first took place in 2010. 41 wrestlers from DDT plus a few guests will spend all of September campaigning for votes from fans to earn a spot on the 23rd October Korakuen Hall show. Everyone who finished in the Top 20 will qualify for the main show while those who finish between #21 to #24 will be put in the dark match. The prize for 2nd Place is 300,000 yen plus a KO-D Openweight Title shot on the October show. The grand prize for the election winner is 1,000,000 yen and a main event KO-D Title match at Osaka Edion Arena #1 in December. If the KO-D Champion finishes in either first or second place then he will get to choose his challenger for that title match.

This year the field is only open to the DDT, DNA and BOYZ brands. Last year’s winner Isami Kodaka and his BASARA brand have declined to participate this year. Although they are part of the DDT Family, they now treat DDT as rivals and want to distance themselves to focus on their own projects. Tokyo Joshi Pro is also not involved but no reason has been given for their exclusion. Sadly the limited field also means Hiroshi Tanahashi is not following up on his promise last year to enter the competition. Don’t know if a deal fell through or if it was just a joke I took seriously.

The full list of candidates are as follows:

HARASHIMA, Danshoku Dino, Cherry, Masahiro Takanashi, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki, Makoto Oishi, Saki Akai, Soma Takao, Akito, Super Sasadango Machine, Antonio Honda, Yukio Sakaguchi, Kazuki Hirata, Yasu Urano, Shunma Katsumata, Tetsuya Endo, Konosuke Takeshita, Kota Umeda, Toru Owashi, Kazusada Higuchi, KUDO, Mad Paulie, Hoshitango, Gorgeous Matsuno, Gota Ihashi, Kouki Iwasaki, MAO, Mizuki Watase, Guanchulo, Rekka, Rainbow Kawamura, Daiki Shimomura, Nobuhiro Shimatani, Lady Beard, Yoshihiko, KENSO, KAI, Yuko Miyamoto, Chikara and Ken Ohka.

There is also a unit election with 9 groups competing against each other, the winners will get to book their own event later this year. The units are:

1. Smile Squash: HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano, Akito & Yuko Miyamoto
2. Shuten-dōji: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Kota Umeda
3. Happy Motels: Konosuke Takeshita, Antonio Honda & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi
4. T2Hide: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata, Chikara, Soma Takao, Kazusada Higuchi, Guanchulo, Rekka, Mizuki Watase, Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani
5. DAMNATION: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie
6. NωA: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO
7. Fantastic Memories: Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii

9. Bad Comi: Ken Ohka & KAI

Voting begins at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016” on 28th August and ends on the 25th September Korakuen Hall show. The results will be announced in Shinjuku on 29th September. Fans will receive one voting ballot per show ticket as well as one ballot for every 3,000 yen spent at the merchandise tables and online store.

FUMA wants to win the title because Yokohama is in the Kanagawa Prefecture. FUMA is from the Kanagawa Prefecture which means Kanagawa has been heavy metal ever since he was born!

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “SUNNY DAY SUNDAY 2016”, 14/08/2016
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
157 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Regain The Smile Of Abe-chan!!: Yukihiro Abe defeated Rainbow Kawamura with the Endless Eight (9:54).
2. Rikidozan III Vs Veteran Mystery: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with the Cross Armbreaker (4:59).
3. World Of Professional Wrestling Strongest Animal Playoff: “Kotori” defeated J-Soul Pandita III IV with the Bird Ridge (7:45).
4. Rebound Queen Cherry Tree Runway Vs Transformation And Goddesses: Shinichiro Tominaga & Ai Shimizu defeated Yumehito Imanari & Emi Sakura when Tominaga pinned Imanari with the JK (7:45).
5. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Osamu Namiguchi, Shibata & GENTARO defeated Ken Ohka, Shota & Mitomi Masayuki when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanaila-X (16:45).

GENTARO surprised everyone in Ganbare☆Wrestling by joining forces with Osamu Namiguchi. GENTARO was working with Ganpuro as an official wrestling counselor for the roster but now he is helping Namiguchi prove his superiority over the company. They along with Shibata were able to do that in the 6-Man Tag main event. Shibata trapped his former Enjo-gun partner Mitomi Masayuki in a Cross Armbreaker while GENTARO did the same to Ken Ohka. That gave Namiguchi all the time in the world beat Shota with the Lanakila-X. Namiguchi added insult to injury by stepping on both Ohka and Imanari to celebrate while Shibata filmed it with his GoPro camera. Namiguchi then kicked Ohka while calling him a disposable wrestler who is only getting a KO-D Tag Team Title shot at Sumo Hall because of KAI. He said he might show up at Ganpuro’s Korakuen Hall show so he can see the company in its final days and tell them “Thank you for the good memories!” Namiguchi had crawled up from the bottom sipping mud to become a pro wrestler. He’s been kicked and beaten but guys like him, GENTARO and Shibata all know how it feels to be a pro wrestler unlike the people in Ganpuro who try to hog the glory. When they left, Ohka got back to his feet and was upset by the accusations. Ohka likes pro wrestling and he supports pro wrestling. Ganpuro is his wrestling life and he has precious support from guys like Shota, Masayuki and Shinichiro Tominaga to back him up. On 2nd October at Korakuen Hall Ohka will crush Namiguchi because Ganbare☆Wrestling is a major sport!

Ai Shimizu received a warm applause for her first match since getting married to DDT announcer Mic Inoue. Yumehito Imanari congratulated her before their tag match but then used his speech as an excuse to to flirt with Emi Sakura. She was left insulted by his lines and began the attack to start the match. Sakura then took pause to congratulate Shimizu before going back to attacking Imanari who wouldn’t take her seriously. Imanari was left to regret his behavior when Sakura was able to put him in a Romero Special. Shinichiro Tominaga later finished the job with a Reverse DDT and the JK. Sakura said she was mortified by Imanari’s behavior but he did show some ability out there. Imanari proclaimed his love for her and thinks them getting married would be the best news in pro wrestling. Shimizu was impressed at how fast men seem to fall for Sakura and she should be happy. Sakura was just annoyed by the whole thing.

Ohka approached Tominaga after his match to announce his opponent at Korakuen Hall. Tominaga will face Shiori Asahi from K-DOJO! Tominaga has a brief history with Asahi going back to his college wrestling club days. Five years later he now has a chance to see how he’s grown in comparison.

In the opening match Yukihiro Abe was given a chance to have some fun after spending months as an angst ridden sidekick to Minoru Fujita. He came out wearing a Haruhi Suzumiya costume to fit in with his opponent Rainbow Kawamura. However the match became less friendly when both wrestlers pulled each other’s wigs off and threw them at each other. Abe applied a Sleeper Hold but Kawamura pulled out an adult manga to distract him and escape. There was more nonsense with Abe getting stripped down to his blue striped underwear as the match progressed. Kawamura sprayed him in the face with disinfectant but during a scramble of pinning holds Abe got the three count with a Backslide he calls the Endless Eight. Thankfully this Endless Eight only lasts three seconds. After the match Abe told everyone that cosplaying and being a transvestite are two different things. He was also in a rush because he wanted to go to Comiket and buy a fanzine from his favourite writer.

600 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

5. New Ghost Story Numabukuro Death Match: Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine Vs Toru Owashi & Guanchulo ended in a No Contest because “You’re Next!” (20:48).
6. Dick Togo & Mike Bailey defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Bailey pinned Endo with the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop (13:57).
7. Beer Garden Specialty Guest Lottery 6-Man Tag Team Match: Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Shuji Ishikawa, Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi when HARASHIMA pinned Ishii with the Somato (14:51).

Last call for orders, today was the finale of Beer Garden 2016 and the last DDT show before “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016” takes place in two weeks time. The main event is a tradition for Beer Garden finales, a 6-Man Tag Team match with both teams being decided by a fan lottery. Konosuke Takeshita, Shuji Ishikawa, HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi, Keisuke Ishii and Kazusada Higuchi were the wrestlers taking part. Six randomly chosen fans got to pick a name out of a box to set up the teams. In the end we got Takeshita, HARASHIMA & Sakaguchi Vs Ishikawa, Ishii & Higuchi as the match. HARASHIMA won the match for his team but afterwards there was a tense staredown between Takeshita and Ishikawa.

Dick Togo & Mike Bailey teamed up for the first time ever to prepare for their match with DAMNATION at Sumo Hall. They got to get in the ring with Tatsuya Endo but he also had Mad Paulie looking over him. Togo was determined to give Endo the Pedigree but Daisuke Sasaki ran in to try and stop him. Togo caught Sasaki in the Crippler Crossface. That left Bailey to hit the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop on Endo for the win. Togo then gave Sasaki the Pedigree and Diving Senton. He and Bailey told Sasaki & Endo they will be waiting for them at Sumo Hall.

Yuko Miyamoto has decided to join Smile Squash for the DDT Dramatic General Election! Miyamoto is teaming with HARASHIMA as Yankee Smile so he feels that being part of the unit for the election makes sense. His first match as a member of Smile Squash was turned into a Falls Count Anywhere Scramble Bunkhouse Match because of Ken Ohka & KAI’s demands. Their friend Shota left a bamboo sword in the ring for everyone to fight over. KAI’s garbage wrestling inspiration continued when he used the Gannosuke Clutch to pin Yasu Urano. KAI told Miyamoto he is determined to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles and provoked him into attacking Shota with the bamboo sword.

After Match #3 Kouki Iwasaki was approached by Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Gota Ihashi. They asked him if he wanted to reform Pigging with them. Iwasaki declined because he wants to continue wrestling by himself. However Iwasaki reappeared during the Election announcements clearly regretting his decision. He changed his mind and accepted their offer to bring Pigging back to life.

Some other announcements were made about the Dramatic Election. Sanshiro Takagi announced that Soma Takao was the newest member of T2Hide… Also Kazusada Higuchi… And Chikara… Oh and Guanchulo, Rekka, Mizuki Watase, Daiki Shimomura and Nobuhiro Shimatani. So now T2Hide consists of 11 members. Ken Ohka protested his absence from the election but was told it is only open to DDT, DNA and BOYZ this year save for a few exceptions. KAI said he was forming a two man unit and wanted Ohka on his side, so Ohka was accepted into the competition. Their unit is called Bad Comi, short for Bad Communication.

Another ghost story was on the cards but Super Sasadango Machine was feeling a little tired of the idea. It doesn’t help that Hisaya Imabayashi died in a car crash last year and thus wasn’t able to tell his stories anymore. Danshoku Dino wondered if he ever passed down his stories to someone else so the role could move on to a new generation. Saki Akai came out wearing a yukata. She told everyone they had three minutes to win their match otherwise she will tell her ghost story. Three minutes passed and Akai began to read. “Coin locker baby… Credibility… Infertility… Shaku Umaa… Dick-Godzilla…” She had difficulty trying to read the book. Everyone began to complain until Nobuhiro Shimatani ran in with a shocked look on his face. He told everyone that Imabayashi’s identical twin brother Masaya Imabayashi was coming over! Masaya walked out and said he will tell a ghost story to mourn the first anniversary of his brother’s death.

“Coin Locker Baby”. An unmarried 17 year old woman became pregnant and gave birth but had confidence to raise the child on her own. So she abandoned it in a locker at Gotanda Station. Five years later the woman returned to the coin locker. As she stood in front of it she heard a child cry behind her. The woman asked if the child was lost but he just cried louder and louder. She asked where his father was? He still cried. She then asked about his mother? At that moment the child stopped crying and there was silence. The child looked up and told the woman “It’s you!”

Everyone screamed. Dino told Masaya it was a good story but very similar to the one his brother told in Shin-Kiba last year. Masaya flipped out and pointed at Dino, shouting “You!” and making him faint. He then did it to Sasadango, then Guanchulo, then Toru Owashi but stopped at Akai. He said he entrusted Akai with his powers and wanted her to try them out. She pointed at Yukinori Matsui and yelled “You!” over and over but nothing happened. Masaya did it instead and then did it to Akai. Masaya grabbed a bottle of water and splashed it over the audience while “Wild Thing” played over the sound system. Masaya thanked everyone for coming, left an envelope in the ring and told Sasadango to call him if they ever want to do this again. When he left Shimatani came back out with some horrible news. He announced that Masaya Imabayashi had died in a car crash on the way to Shinjuku FACE. Dino opened the envelope that was left in the ring and it simply read “You’re Next!”

1. Maho Kuron Debut Match: Maho Kuron defeated Nodoka-oneesan with a Reverse Swing Neckbreaker Drop (6:01).
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima defeated Hyper Misao with the Northern Lights Suplex (7:46).
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuu defeated Akane Miura by TKO with a Katahajime (7:31).
4. Special Rules: Yuka Sakazaki & KANNA defeated Nonoko & Rika Tatsumi when KANNA pinned Nonoko with the 50$ent (12:17).

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: Yuu defeated Syoko Nakajima with the Cross Armbreaker (17:12).

The winner of this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup is Yuu! No, not you. Yuu! She’s only been wrestling in Tokyo Joshi Pro for 8 months but in that time Yuu has been undefeated and nobody has been able to match her skill. Akane Miura offered a challenge in the semi-final with her power based offence but Yuu choked her out with the Katahajime to win. In the other semi-final Hyper Misao took on last year’s winner Syoko Nakajima. Misao wanted the match to have a One Count Pinfall rule so she could save her energy for the final. The rule was rejected and Misao was told to continue the match when she pinned Nakajima for one second. Misao’s recent streak of upset wins ended here and Nakajima went on to the final. Yuu kicked out of the Northern Lights Suplex and wore down Nakajima until she tapped from a Cross Armbreaker. Yuu said becoming a pro wrestler is a dream come true but now she has a new dream. She asked Miyu Yamashita for a TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title shot. Yamashita accepted the challenge and set the match for 22nd September.

Yamashita has another target in her sights. She’s interested in fighting Reika Saiki one on one. Saiki herself thinks she has found a rival in Yamashita.

Summer time was the theme of Match #4. Each girl took part in the match while wearing yukatas. They also each brought out a weapon that is related to summer vacations. Rika Tatsumi had a beach volleyball, Yuka Sakazaki had a water ring, Nonoko had a watermelon and KANNA carried a water pistol. After the match KANNA announced she will graduate from Tokyo Joshi on 22nd September. She will have one more match with Miyu Yamashita on 31st August. She also invited Saki Akai and Ai Shimizu to attend her graduation ceremony.

Maho Kuron is the newest wrestler to debut for Tokyo Joshi. She wears a black costume to go along with her name. She has no sports history but wanted to join Tokyo Joshi when she saw their show at last year’s Beer Garden series. Nodoka-oneesan tried to beat her with the Back Flip but Kuron escaped and hit a Swinging Reverse Neckbreaker to win her debut match. Kuron didn’t feel quite happy afterwards but thinks people will enjoy her personality. She said she wants to fight Akane Miura sometime.

3. Survival Anywhere Blindfold Bra 4 Way Match: Yoshiko defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Antonio Honda and Toru Owashi (17:32).
3a. Yoshiko eliminated Toro Owashi when Yoshiko stripped off Owashi’s bra (12:53).
3b. Yoshiko eliminated Daisuke Sasaki and Antonio Honda when Yoshiko stripped off both Sasaki and Honda’s bras at the same time (17:32).
4. Hardcore 6-Man Tag Team Match: Shuji Ishikawa, Mad Paulie & Tetsuya Endo defeated Masashi Takeda, Kazusada Higuchi & Choun-Shiryu when Endo pinned Shiryu with the Sky Twister Press (20:12).

Daisuke Sasaki wasted no time when it came to getting drinks during the DAMNATION part of Beer Garden week. It seemed that he had a cup of beer with him every time he appeared in the ring. But there was no time for nonsense in the main event. DAMNATION wasn’t taking things easy because they put themselves in a 6-Man Hardcore Tag Team Match. Their opponents Masashi Takeda, Kazusada Higuchi & Choun-Shiryu brought out a ladder, a table and a wok to use as weapons. DAMNATION were armed with bamboo swords. Tetsuya Endo hit a No Touch Tope that led to a brawl around ringside. Shiryu responded by climbing the ladder and delivering a Flying Kung Fu Kick to Endo. Takeda then Body Slammed Endo onto the ladder back in the ring. Further damage was given to Endo after a Diving Senton from Takeda and a Diving Single Foot Stomp from Shiryu off the ladder. However Endo survived the onslaught and put down Shiryu with the Torture Rack Bomb. The Sky Twister Press afterwards won the match for DAMNATION. Endo told everyone that Takeda’s birthday was tomorrow so he wished him a happy birthday. Takeda thanked him and said the match was so much fun. Sasaki then went on a rant saying he is sick of all the marriage proposals that are happening in Beer Garden this year. They don’t care about marriage, they’re too busy making he entire world revolve around DAMNATION!

One person in the Blindfold Bra match had an advantage over everyone else. Yoshiko was the only wrestler wearing their bra underneath their wrestling gear. Her three male opponents normally wrestle topless so their bras were all vulnerable from being stripped. It took around fifteen minutes but Yoshiko was able to strip the bras off all of her opponents to win. Antonio Honda thought he had his hand on her but it was actually Daisuke Kiso. When he pulled off Kiso’s shirt it was revealed Kiso was wearing a bra underneath.

Shuji Ishikawa has to lose some water weight for his KO-D Openweight Title Match in Sumo Hall. So he was put in a match made specifically to make him sweat. His opponent Nobuhiro Shimatani came up with a secret plan to help him sweat. He bribed Mad Paulie with a frankfurter and also Daisuke Kiso with a baseball card of Takahiro Arai from the Hiroshima Toyo Carp to be on his side. Together they were able to put force a heavy jacket onto Ishikawa to make him sweat. Paulie also found a blanket and woolly hat to put on Ishikawa. Gota Ihashi then found a bottle of lotion and poured it over Ishikawa to heat him up even more. Unfortunately that made the ring canvas too slippery to stand on and the match had to be called off.

Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi fought in a rounds match where both of them had to drink a cup of beer after every round. Each round was only 30 seconds long. In the little time they had between drinking they did try to wrestle but in the end the round limit was reached and a draw was called. Both Sasaki and Takanashi cried and went to hug each other. Sasaki then Low Blowed Takanashi. Takanashi Low Blowed Sasaki in return.
