DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA defeated Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie and Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when HARASHIMA pinned Matsunaga with the Somato from a trampoline (38:30).

To celebrate the opening of a new Gold’s Gym branch in Toyocho, DDT came along to hold a pro wrestling match inside it. Mad Paulie got in the mood by having the Gold’s Gym logo painted on the back of his head. The match began inside the gymnasium where a mat was supplied for the wrestlers to grapple on. Obviously the wrestling didn’t stay there.

Sanshiro Takagi found a bunch of basketballs and encouraged everyone to turn the match into a game of dodgeball. The children in the crowd joined in by throwing the balls at Danshoku Dieno. Over at the trampoline Tetsuya Endo used it to do a 450 Splash onto Dieno as he laid on the crash pad.

Akito found a kicking pad and used it to guard himself from HARASHIMA’s kicks. Paulie, Kazusada Higuchi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga approached each other in the centre of the floor and had a sumo contest using the Gold’s Gym logo as the ring. Takagi was inspired by a hula hoop to move the match over to the fitness room.

The people already exercising in the room did not expect to see a wrestling match suddenly appear. Matsunaga and Dieno used a squat machine to put Endo in the Danshoku Nightmare. Higuchi and Mad Paulie went for a jog on the running machines.

The wrestlers were surprised to discover that Masaya Takahashi fro Big Japan was there working out. He got involved in the match by Double Chopping Endo while Akito held Endo back.

The match went up to the rooftop where the tennis and futsal courts can be found. Everybody decided to put the match on hold so they could play a game of football instead. After a long 5 minute game that was decided on a penalty shootout, Takagi decided he had enough and went back to fighting. Somehow he attacked his partner HARASHIMA by mistake, probably because they were on opposite teams for football.

Everybody moved back down to the gymnasium to finish off the match by the mat. However Higuchi and Endo fought their way up to the balcony. Higuchi tried to throw Endo over the edge to the crash mat below. Endo held on for dear life but eventually he fell onto the pad.

Higuchi came back down and lifted a wooden platform onto his shoulders to hit his opponents with. Dieno jumped onto a vault block and laid into the Hell Gate position. Both Takagi and Akito were knocked onto the springboard and they bounced into Dieno’s backside. The same happened to HARASHIMA but he hit the Somato on Dieno!

Takagi dragged Matsunaga back to the mat and he gave him the Stunner. HARASHIMA then ran around the gymnasium to build up speed. He charged towards a trampoline and jumped off it to hit a high Somato on Matsunaga for the three count.

Takagi celebrated the win by shooting a basketball into the hoop and bragging about being in his junior high school’s basketball club. He missed the throw. Takagi then went in search of the gym’s manager to find out if the wrestlers got in trouble for today’s match. The manager told him it was ok and he was happy that all of the different rooms got to be involved.

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura & Koju Takeda defeated Katsumi Oribe, Yuto Kikuchi & Yuki Aoki when Shimatani pinned Kikuchi with a Cradle after a Sliding Elbow Smash from Shimomura (10:38).
2. Kouki Iwasaki & Tomoya Hirata defeated Baliyan Akki & Rekka when Iwasaki submitted Akki with a Triangle Choke (8:32).
3. MAO & Rising HAYATO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when MAO pinned Iino with the Cannonball 450 (12:03).

5. Ryota Nakatsu Vs Sammy Guevara ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
6. Irie-gun Vs Naomi Kingdom!: Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase by Referee Stoppage when Okuda used a Torso Sleeper Hold on Watase (12:39).
7. DNA Naniwa Summit Decisive Battle!: Naomi Yoshimura defeated Yuki Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (22:36).

On the penultimate DNA show, Naomi Yoshimura gave a heartfelt speech after the main event. Being from Osaka himself, Yoshimura wanted many people to come see DNA in this area for the final time today. He and Yuki Ueno have had many matches against each other. Today he could feel Ueno’s momentum as they wrestled and normally that would be deserving of a handshake so they could reconcile their differences. Maybe this rivalry deserves a happy ending because Ueno and also Kota Umeda will soon be moving up to DDT. Yoshimura has also decided his future path. As long as Yoshimura wrestles he cannot lose! With a rebellious heart on his side Yoshimura will never lose again! Today is Yoshimura’s happy ending!

The match between Irie-gun and Naomi Kingdom turned into a ringside brawl with wrestlers getting throw into the seats on two sides of the room. Keisuke Okuda countered Mizuki Watase’s Back Drop into a Sleeper Hold. Okuda then wrapped his legs around Watase to leave him helpless until the referee called for the bell. Another brawl broke out after the match which led to Shigehiro Irie chasing Okuda & Akira Jo out of the ring.

A knee injury prevented Kota Umeda from wrestling on the show so Ryota Nakatsu from BASARA was brought in as his replacement. Nakatsu took on Sammy Guevara in a bout that was too close to call. Neither could get the win by the time the time limit expired. Nakatsu thanked Guevara for the match and promoted BASARA’s show at Osaka Okinawa Hall on 22nd July. He forgot to bring tickets so he advised everyone to go buy them at the nearest convenience store so his employers won’t get angry at him.

A missed Spear from Yuki Iino accidentally hit Konosuke Takeshita instead of MAO. From there Iino was outnumbered and taken down by a Missile Dropkick from Rising HAYATO. MAO then hit the Cannonball 450 for the win.

Regardless, they were a team today. Shoko Nakajima took out Yuu with a Topé Suicida which allowed Yamashita to pin Misao with the Attitude Adjustment.

4. Road To Independent World Jr!? Hitori Shiten Pro Wrestling Vs Silent Arm Cross: Ayumu Honda & Kyu Mogami defeated Keisuke Ishii & Chikara when Honda submitted Chikara with a Jumping Cross Armbreaker (12:29).
5. This Is Ganbare☆Wrestling! ~Charisma Vs Revolutionary~: Ken Ohka Vs Yumehito Imanari ended in a No Contest when Survival Tobita and Shin Mokujin Ken interfered. (13:30).
5a. Emergency Special Match: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari defeated Survival Tobita & Shin Mokujin Ken by Disqualification when Ken attacked the referee (2:33).

The battle for Ganbare☆Wrestling went in a bizarre direction when the main event was interrupted by Survival Tobita and a new version of one of his most infamous monster wrestlers Shin Mokujin Ken (I think the original was killed by Mecha Mummy in Chikara Pro)! Tobita gave Ken Ohka a Piledriver while Ken attacked Yumehito Imanari. Ohka immediately changed the main event into a tag team match but that was thrown out when Ken attacked the referee. Tobita told Ohka he wasn’t working hard enough. Tobita is crazier than Ohka is and to prove it he captured Mokujin Ken and brought him to Ganpro to cause some chaos! Ohka called for a truce with Imanari so they can fight back together. They decided that Ohka will face Tobita and Imanari will fight Ken in the first round of the Ganbare☆Climax on 11th August! Imanari said that the Imanari Revolution is no joke. His dream is to lead Ganpro back to Korakuen Hall!

Ayumu Honda used the referee as a shield to block Chikara and leave him open for the Cross Armbreaker. After the match Keisuke Ishii announced he will defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title against Honda on 11th August. Honda wanted to change the date because he is already booked for a K-DOJO show in Chiba that day. Ishii convinced Honda to take the match because the Ganpro show in Narimasu takes place early in the afternoon while the K-DOJO show will be at night.

Shuichiro Katsumura & Facade are both ninjas so they made a good team today. They both did ninja poses to celebrate their win.

HARUKAZE wanted a rematch with Moeka Haruhi on 11th August but there is not enough room on the card to make it happen. Ohka instead offered to enter both HARUKAZE and Haruhi into the Battle Royal to determine who faces the Independent World Jr. Champion the next day. Both accepted.

The Uguisudani Crossface used by Shinichiro Tominaga is also known as the Buffalo Sleeper.

The eight participants for the 2018 Ganbare☆Climax are Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari, Shinichiro Tominaga, Shota, Survival Tobita, Shin Makujin Ken, Mitsuo Momota and Yuu Yamagata.

6. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated MAO with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (14:46).
7. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when Irie pinned Ueno with the Beast Bomber (19:12).

Shigehiro Irie dared HARASHIMA to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. HARASHIMA ignored him and left ringside after the match. Irie credited Sammy Guevara for giving everyone a wonderful fight in the main today.

MAO couldn’t beat Tetsuya Endo but on the bright side he was able to see Endo’s possible limitations. Even though Endo is a high flyer he does more than just dive. So the obvious tactic of targeting the knees won’t be enough for MAO to beat him. Still, MAO thinks he scored 80 out of 100 points today. He will need to score all 100 if he wants to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles.

Nobuhiro Shimatani tried to assert himself to impress DAMNATION by facing Shuten-dōji head on. All that did was make him get beaten up easily. Shimatani later tried to hit the God’s Right Knee on Yukio Sakaguchi but missed. Sakaguchi hit him with the proper version of the move to end the match.

Kazuki Hirata claimed to have a new finishing move called the Hirata DDT that he wanted to show off. Danshoku Dieno spoiled it by telling everybody it was the Asai DDT. Kota Umeda then pinned Hirata in 30 seconds. Hirata blamed having sunburn for losing so quickly. It was enough for the match to get restarted. Umeda did the Asai DDT himself to pin Hirata again. After the second match Hirata tried to talk himself up but he then collapsed from exhaustion. Umeda gently kicked Hirata to check if he was ok then called for an intermission.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

HARASHIMA only has two more matches to last through until he can cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet at Korakuen Hall. He previously held the KO-D Openweight and DDT Extreme Titles at the same time back in late 2013/early 2014. He knows Shigehiro Irie gets faster and stronger every time he goes overseas but still Irie has never been able to beat him one on one. Irie also has other matters on his mind, like how Producer Danshoku Dieno was absent for the press conference on Wednesday to promote this show. He calls Dieno irresponsible for not showing up and making the Assistant Producer Hisaya Imabayashi host the conference in his place. Irie thinks the DDT Producer should be present to oversee the promotion of this match because the KO-D Title is supposed to be the most important championship in DDT.

Who wants another new championship! It’s sponsored this time! The Uchikomi! Openweight Ultimate Title is on the line in a special Scramble Tag Rumble Match. The winning team will immediately face each other in a match to decide the first champion. Ken Ohka is the key figure to look out for here. He has starred in commercials for Uchikomi! but they do poor numbers on Youtube. It looks like the goal for this championship is to find a new face for Uchikomi!’s adverts. Ohka promises to win otherwise he will be fired from his commercial gig!
