*Kota Ibushi fails in V3. El Generico becomes the 43rd KO-D Openweight Champion!

El Generico has been a force to be reckoned with ever since he came to Union and DDT. Now he has defeated their biggest star to win their top championship. Kota Ibushi wanted to face Generico again to avenge his defeat to the Generic Luchador back in May of this year. Ibushi even said he needed to win at any cost. Generico was the same, blocking a Top Rope Reverse Huracanrana and turning that into the deadly Brainbuster onto the top turnbuckle to end Ibushi’s reign as champion. After the match Generico said winning the title is an incredible feeling and he thanked Ibushi, calling him the best wrestler in the world. Generico promised that if he wins the DDT48 General Election, he will nominate Ibushi to get the vacant prize title shot. Generico said DDT welcomed him with an open heart, that Japan is No. 1 and the KO-D Title is the No. 1 championship in Japan.

Meanwhile Kenny Omega was spotted watching the match with great interest from a corner in the hall.

The new veteran unit now has a name. When Yasu Urano, HARASHIMA & KUDO combine, they become Ura-Shima-Kudo! During their match with Team Dream Futures, HARASHIMA fought in a furious manner that caught the Drift wrestlers off guard. Drift were not happy with the loss and threw out challenges for singles matches.

Kenny Omega said he was surprised by Konosuke Takeshita’s performance in their match, but his next real challenge has yet to come. Omega will return to All Japan for a match against Hiroshi Yamato for the AJPW Jr. Heavyweight Title on 7th October.

Shuji Ishikawa complained about having a sore shoulder and had to be convinced by Poison Sawada JULIE to wrestle for him as Client Snake. And by convinced I mean brainwashed. After their defeat to Sanshiro Takagi & MIKAMI, Takagi credited Sawada as being the driving force behind pro wrestling’s fantasy world in Japan. Sawada said he has no more regrets because he has lived in the fantasy world.

Danshoku Dino Vs Makoto Oishi was said to have been weird. Before the match took place, Yukinori Matsui approached both wrestlers to say he didn’t want to see any of the usual gay antics or else referee Daisuke Kiso would stop the match. Unfortunately for Kiso, there came a moment in the match where he got knocked out. With the ref down, Dino grabbed a futon from underneath the ring and forced Oishi to go under it with him. Matsui tried to enter ringside to stop the match but Tsurumi Amon prevented him from doing so with a kiss. Kiso recovered in time to witness the debauchery and stopped the match.

Yuji Hino left his partners high and dry to rejoin the wrestlers from Los Calientes and reform the Monster Army. They said that this is the best line up of the Monster Army and they can change the world.

The boxing match between Michael Nakazawa and Gota Ihashi ended in a draw. Since the winner was supposed to become the leader of a new stable with Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega, it was up to them to decide who should get it. They chose Ihashi. However, Tsurumi Amon wasn’t convinced that Ihashi deserved to be leader. He also didn’t think Ibushi or Omega deserved to be the leader. Then from out of nowhere Ibushi suggested Yumehito Imanari, a part time wrestler and filmmaker who is in charge of the Danshoku Ranch CLASSIC documentary series produced by DDT. Amon approved of the choice and Imanari has been made leader of the new unit.

Dramatic Fantasia will return to Samurai! TV beginning on 11th October.

It was two years ago when Union last held a show in Kitasenju Theatre. The venue was packed for their return highlighted with the Union Sekigun standing up to Team Dream Futures. Unfortunately for the home team, Drift were victorious by the night’s end. Keisuke Ishii wasn’t impressed and asked if that was the best Union had to offer. Isami Kodaka took offence to that and had a confrontation with Ishii. Naomi Susan announced that Kodaka and Ishii will have a match at Union’s next event in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 28/10.

Earlier in the semi-main event, Kodaka defeated Goro Jr. He and Goro had a handshake afterwards but when he tried to do the same with El Hijo del Goro, he was met with a middle finger.

Clearly inspired by the recent riveting discussion about whether or not Big Daddy should be inducted into the Wrestling Observer Hall Of Fame, Hiroshi Fukuda decided to be a gentlemen and wrestle under “Great Britain” rules for his Handicap match against Cherry & Mio Shirai. Part of the rules were to wrestle clean like a gentleman and he also only had to be pinned for two seconds instead of three to lose. Mio did just that two minutes later. Fukuda complained and remembered that the British doesn’t actually use those rules, so they restarted the match under normal Handicap rules. This time Fukuda fought dirty and attempted to use a chair and a tambourine as weapons. Rumi Kazama stopped him from using the foriegn objects and the distraction led to his defeat for the second time. Fukuda was so upset he fled backstage (and I quote from the website translation) “crying like a virgin.”
