*V2 for GENTARO & Urano.
7. 3 Way: Danshoku Dino defeated Kota Ibushi and HARASHIMA when Dino pinned Ibushi with a Gay-do Clutch (13:35).

The main event began with just Kota Ibushi and HARSHIMA fighting each other. Danshoku Dino was too busy chasing after members of the audience but he joined the match eventually just so he could cop a feel of his opponents as they grappled each other. Despite his shenanigans, all three wrestlers fought their hearts out. HARASHIMA was about to finish off Ibushi with the Swan Dive Somato only for Dino to catch him and plant a deep kiss followed by the Danshoku Driver. Kota knocked Dino out of the ring with a High Kick and turned his attention to HARASHIMA. Ibushi hit the Phoenix Splash and was a second away from winning when Dino leapt onto him and applied the Gay-Do Clutch to steal the victory. After the match, Dino, Ibushi & HARASHIMA positioned themselves to form the letters DDT, because 3D is the latest fad and they wanted in on it.

7. 3 Way: Kota Ibushi Vs Danshoku Dino Vs HARASHIMA

The Shit Heart ♥ Foundation have been getting one over GRANMA for the last couple of shows thanks to some dirty tricks. Now Takao Soma & Super Shit Machine have two more advantages over GENTARO & Yasu Urano, the SHF are allowed fight under No DQ rules and the champions have to pin the challengers for five seconds in order to win. GENTARO & Urano have a tough task ahead of them if they aim to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles around their waists.

HARASHIMA & HERO! have been nominated as the next challengers for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. They will take on whichever team leaves the 17/04 Nagoya show as champions.

Danshoku Dino is two for two against Bob Sapp’s deadly army of assassins. The third one being sent to face Dino has been described as a thug. Take that for what it’s worth.

Gorgeous Matsuno has been away from wrestling matches in DDT since September 2008 due to old age and ill health. He’s made appearances in DDT since then but this will be his first match back in over two and a half years.

DDT “DICK TOGO RETIREMENT SHOW”, 30/06/2011
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Antonio Honda & Jado Vs The Great Sasuke & TAKA Michinoku
2. Dick Togo Vs Gedo

I haven’t labelled Dick Togo Vs Gedo as Togo’s retirement match because he may be having more than one match on the show.

Miyaji Ironworks

1. Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa Vs Kota Ibushi & Michael Nakazawa

DDT will go on the road once more with their “Anywhere Pro Wrestling” shows, this time for charity. The Charity Wrestling Series will raise money for the Red Cross to send aid to those in need after the disasters in Japan. The first stop will be Miyaji Ironworks, a location familiar to DDT fans as the site for a KO-D Tag Title defence for Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa during their “Greatest Title Run Ever ©”. The duo will team up at the factory again to take on the “Street Wrestling King” Kota Ibushi & Michael Nakazawa.


DDT Results At Shinjuku FACE

April 13, 2011

DDT, 13/04/2011
Shinjuku FACE

1. Hikaru Sato defeated Kazuki Hirata with a Cross Armbreaker (7:54).
2. 3 Way: KUDO & Makoto Oishi defeated MIKAMI & Rion Mizuki and Michael Nakazawa & DJ Nira when Oishi pinned Nakazawa with a Sunset Flip(11:22).
3. Super Shit Machine defeated Yasu Urano with a Back Drop (7:53).
4. Takao Soma defeated GENTARO by DQ when he faked a Low Blow (7:26).
5. Danshoku Dino defeated Ryan Genesis by KO with a kiss (9:18).
6. HARASHIMA & hero! defeated Kenny Omega & Keisuke Ishii when hero! pinned Ishii (11:29).
7. Dick Togo, Gedo & Tomohiro Ishii defeated Kota Ibushi, Antonio Honda & Daisuke Sasaki when Togi pinned Honda with the Diving Senton (19:35).

Two matches were announced for Dick Togo’s retirement show on 30th June. Togo’s final match in his illustrious career will be against Gedo. There will also be a tag match pitting Antonio Honda & Jado against The Great Sasuke & TAKA Michinoku.

The Shit Heart ♥ Foundation used plenty of dirty tactics to win both of their matches over GRANMA. Tomimitsu Matsunaga, who announced back at “NON-FIX 3.16” that he would not appear on this event, showed up disguised as the Super Shit Machine and swapped places with the real Machine during its match with Yasu Urano. The plan worked a treat and Matsunaga pinned Urano with Yukinori Matsui none the wiser. Takao Soma won the next match by DQ when he convinced the ref that GENTARO gave him a Low Blow. By winning both matches, the SHF were allowed to add two stipulations for the KO-D Tag Team Title match in Nagoya on 4/17. Their stipulations are that the SHF cannot be disqualified and that Urano & GENTARO can only win by pinning Soma or Machine for 5 seconds rather than the traditional 3 count.

Kenny Omega announced that he will participate in the upcoming KO-D Openweight Title Contendership Tournament. This will be the first time Kenny will enter the annual DDT tournament.

Gorgeous Matsuno will have his return match on 4th May at Korakuen Hall.

Daisuke BOSJ Bound, Union Gets More Tenryu

April 9, 2011

NEVER.6 “ROAD TO THE SUPER JR. 2DAYS TOURNAMENT”
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
300 Fans

1. Road to the Super Jr. 2 Day Tournament – Block A – Semi Final: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the NOW or NEVER (5:52).
3. Road to the Super Jr. 2 Day Tournament – Block B – Semi Final: Taichi defeated Keisuke Ishii with a High-Angle Crab Hold (4:15).
5. Kyosuke Mikami & Hiromu Takahashi defeated Kazuki Hirata & Shinichiro Tominaga when Takahashi pinned Hirata with the Fisherman Suplex (10:11).
6. Yujiro Takahashi, Tetsuya Naito, Jado & Gedo defeated Ken Ohka, Osamu Namiguchi, Marines Mask II & Kaji Tomato when Takahashi pinned Ohka after the Tokyo Pimps (15:50).
7. Road to the Super Jr. 2 Day Tournament – Block A – Final: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Tsuyoshi Kikuchi with the NOW or NEVER (14:26).

Daisuke Sasaki has earned a spot in this year’s Best Of The Super Junior tournament by winning his block in the Road to the Super Jr. tournament hosted by New Japan Pro Wrestling’s NEVER brand. Yesterday he defeated Kazuki Hirata and today he went past Ryuichi Sekine from K-DOJO in the second round of Block A. In the block’s final he met Tsuyoshi Kikuchi, the longtime veteran who has spent all year campaigning for a spot in the BOSJ. Sasaki shattered his dreams with his NOW or NEVER finisher and will now take his place among the elite Jr. Heavyweights in the world today…and Taichi.

Other DDT and Union wrestlers did not have a good day at the tournament, all losing their matches. Ken Ohka continued his chance meetings with high level wrestlers, losing to Yujiro Takahashi, Tetsuya Naito, Jado & Gedo in an 8-Man Tag. Kazuki Hirata & Shinichiro Tominaga teamed together in a losing effort to Kyosuke Mikami & Hiromu Takahashi.

Looks like Genichiro Tenryu showing up for Union wasn’t just a one time thing. Mr. Puroresu will join fellow TKG48 members Munenori Sawa & Shigehiro Irie for a Six-Man Tag at “GOLDEN UNION 2011” in Korakuen Hall.


HERO! Returns?!?, Updated Cards For April, ‘Eff Off Fujita!

April 7, 2011

An odd event took place during the 4 Way match on yesterday’s “NON-FIX 3.16” show. When Michael Nakazawa, Antonio Honda and DJ Nira triple teamed HARASHIMA during the match, a masked man ran to the ring and cleared house, saving HARASHIMA from the beating and causing the match to end in a No Contest. What’s odd is that the masked man was HERO!, HARASHIMA’s masked alter ego! It is not clear who is behind the mask now but HERO! made an offer to team with HARASHIMA in the future. Tsurumi Amon interjected and thought that was a great idea, so HARASHIMA & HERO! will team together on 13th April.

DDT, 13/04/2011
Shinjuku FACE

1. Hikaru Sato Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. 3 Way: MIKAMI & Rion Mizuki Vs Michael Nakazawa & DJ Nira Vs KUDO & Makoto Oishi

4. Yasu Urano Vs Super Shit Machine
5. GENTARO Vs Takao Soma
6. Danshoku Dino Vs Ryan Jenness
7. Dick Togo, Gedo & Tomohiro Ishii Vs Kota Ibushi, Antonio Honda & Daisuke Sasaki

The two GRANMA Vs Shit Heart ♥ Foundation singles matches will have repercussions for their KO-D Tag Title match in Nagoya on 17th April. The winner of each match here in will get to add a stipulation to the Tag Title match.

A wrestler by the name of Ryan Jenness (ライアン・ジェネス – could be something else, I don’t recognise the name or anything similar) is Bob Sapp’s second assassin sent after Danshoku Dino.

DDT, 17/04/2011
Nagoya

1. Shigehiro Irie & Akito Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Keisuke Ishii
2. Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. KUDO Vs Michael Nakazawa
4. HERO! & Mr. #6 Vs DJ Nira & Antonio Honda
5. Kenny Omega Vs MIKAMI
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: GENTARO & Yasu Urano (c) Vs Takao Soma & Super Shit Machine
7. 3 Way: Kota Ibushi Vs Danshoku Dino Vs HARASHIMA

A pretty packed show here. DDT’s three big stars go at it in the main event, the Tag Titles are on the line with some stipulations yet to be added, Kenny Omega Vs MIKAMI will surely be exciting and you have the return of Mr. #6.

For some reason, Minoru Fujita has been banned from appearing at future DDT events. Fujita has lately been showing up at DDT shows uninvited and everyone has had enough. Tsurumi Amon brought it up at a meeting and they all decided to ban him from the company for now.
