October 28, 2012

UNION “UNION FESTIVAL”, 28/10/2012
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
276 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Menso~re Oyaji & Shotaro Nasu defeated Daichi Kazato & Ryuichi Sekine when Nasu pinned Kazato with the PK (11:05).
2. Seiya Morohashi (w/ Rumi Kazama) defeated Hiroshi Fukuda (w/ Mame Endo) with the Crippler Crosspenis (8:45)
3. Cherry defeated Mika Iida with the Cherryton Bomb (8:41).
4. Isami Kodaka, Ken Ohka & Mio Shirai defeated Miyako Matsumoto, Saint Seiya Rion & El Hijo del Goro when Kodaka pinned Goro with the Isamu Leg (10:07)
5. Shuji Ishikawa & Kengo Ohka defeated Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma when Ishikawa pinned Soma with the Splash Mountain (17:48).
6. Keisuke Ishii defeated Hiro Tsumaki with the Kneel Kick (16:28).

Drift’s raid on Union saw a brave Hiro Tsumaki fall to Keisuke Ishii after a strong effort. With a winning streak building up in Union, Ishii challenged Shuji Ishikawa to a DDT Extreme Title match. Shuji himself has success in battling Drift including a victory with Kengo Ohka today over Takao Soma & Shigehiro Irie. Naomi Susan confirmed the match will happen at Union’s 7th Anniversary show in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 23rd November.

Shigehiro Irie threw out a challenge to Isami Kodaka for 23/11. The show will also have Cherry Vs Ran Yu Yu and Hiroshi Fukuda Vs Ryuichi Sekine. El Generico and Jun Kasai are also announced to compete on the show.

There was a bit of bad blood brewing between Mio Shirai and Miyako Matsumoto during Match #4. This ties into Ice Ribbon where Shirai is the current ICEx60 Champion and Miyako has constantly been trying to get a title shot against her.

Cherry complimented Mika Iida for being youthful, fresh and cute like a younger version of herself.

Seiya Morohashi Vs Hiroshi Fukuda included a rule where sneaky low blows were allowed. Fukuda requested for this stipulation because Morohashi’s muscles were so strong and tough. The plan backfired when Morohashi applied a groin version of the Crippler Crossface to win by submission.

6. Castle Siege Death Match: Takao Soma (Attacker) defeated Sanshiro Takagi (Defender) when Soma destroyed Castle Shin-Kiba (5:42).
7. KO-D Title Challenger Decision – 7 Way Elimination Match: MIKAMI defeated HARASHIMA, Hikaru Sato, Shigehiro Irie, Isami Kodaka, Antonio Honda and Gota Ihashi (18:41).

7e. MIKAMI eliminated Hikaru Sato with the Swan Dive School Boy (14:57).
7f. MIKAMI eliminated HARASHIMA with a School Boy (18:41).

MIKAMI was the last man standing in the 7 Way main event. Once again MIKAMI’s excellence with roll up was the deciding factor, countering HARASHIMA’s Somato with the School Boy to become the No. 1 Contender. “The Suicide Boy” will now face El Generico for the KO-D Openweight Title in Korakuen Hall on 25th November. Poison Sawada JULIE appeared in the ring afterwards to congratulate MIKAMI and motivate him for the title match.

The Castle Siege Death Match between Sanshiro Takagi and Takao Soma involved a castle of chairs set up in the middle of the ring. Takagi’s role was to protect the castle while Soma had to destroy it to win. Soma was able to achieve his goal with thanks to some help from Keisuke Ishii. Takagi was distressed by the result but still had some faith left. “Castle Shin-Kiba has fallen… But Castle Korakuen still stands!” Takagi then blamed Akito for Castle Shin-Kiba’s destruction, suggesting that Akito didn’t stack up the chairs to give the castle the proper support it needed. Akito promised to make it up to Takagi and it was decided that they will both protect Castle Korakuen from Soma & Ishii on 25/11.

Poison Sawada JULIE thanked everyone in the Six-Man Tag Match for taking part in his retirement tour.

Michael Nakazawa intruded on the Danshoku Dino Vs Hiroshi Fukuda match and attacked both men to draw a no contest. Nakazawa made a statement that this was the beginning of his “second administration”. Fukuda joined Nakazawa’s side, going as far as to say “DDT = Nakazawa.” DJ Nira then showed up to side with Dino. Tsurumi Amon stepped in to make a tag team match between the two sides to take place on 25/11.

October 25, 2012

DDT “WE’RE GONNA GO BEFORE WINTER COMES”, 11/11/2012

6. Kota Ibushi, MIKAMI & Shuji Ishikawa Vs Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma

Team Dream Future’s assault on the main event scene in both DDT and Union has drawn the ire of Shuji Ishikawa. So much so that Ishikawa is jumping over to DDT to face them on their turf. Ishikawa will be teaming with Kota Ibushi and MIKAMI, setting up Drift’s strongest opponents to date.

The bump up to main event for Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma means that they will no longer face Sanshiro Takagi & Yoshihiro Takayama on the card. Instead, Takagi & Takayama will take on the new team of Shima-Hiro.

Poison Sawada JULIE is using his retirement match to help shine the spotlight on DDT’s rookies. However, he will also be bringing back some old pals to help him out one last time. One of them is Takatoge, the supernatural alter ego of Takashi Sasaki that existed around a decade ago. Sasaki dusts off the gimmick to bid farewell to Sawada.
