*V1 for Kenny Omega. Isami Kodaka fails in V1. Kenny Omega becomes the 22nd DDT Extreme Champion!
Kenny Omega can now call himself a Double Champion! He now adds the DDT Extreme Title to keep his KO-D Openweight Title company. Omega has his theme music played live by the Capcom band ROCK-MEN while Isami Kodaka was accompanied by members of Union as well as MIKAMI. The One-Winged Angel was the deciding factor and Isami admitted defeat afterwards. Omega nominated HARASHIMA as his next challenger for beating him in the KO-D Tag Team Title match from a week ago. Kenny pointed out that HARASHIMA has yet to beat him in a singles match.
Prepare the tanks, the Monster Army are now the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions! Not a bad birthday present for Yuji Hino, who turns 28 today. Antonio Honda declared he will start the auction for the belts at 300 million yen. Keisuke Ishii was devastated to lose the 6-Man Tag Title so soon after losing the DDT Extreme Title.
Toru Owashi appeared to announce his full time return to wrestling. He has spent the last couple of years away from wrestling raising enough money to move to Tokyo. Now he is running his own shop in Tokyo and is able to wrestle again. Sanshiro Takagi isn’t excited about the news. He thinks DDT has enough wrestlers and wonders why Owashi hasn’t gone looking for other promotions. Tsurumi Amon will put Owashi through a series of matches to see if he is good enough to come back.
Yuzuki Aikawa’s DDT farewell was ruined by Danshoku Dino & Akiawa’s fellow Stardom wrestler Yoshiko. Dino debuted a brand new finisher to pin Sanshiro Takagi. From what I can guess, the Shin Danshoku Driver is a Beach Break with the victim’s head shoved into the back of Dino’s tights. Takagi demanded a rematch and told Aikawa that there is one place she hasn’t bounced and wrestled in yet, the streets!
KUDO will return to action on the 17/2 Korakuen Hall show, making the Ura-Shima-Kudo unit complete again. FUMA interrupted the announcement saying that the group is now called Ura-Shima-Fuma. FUMA and Yasu Urano argued over who is actually a member of the group with Urano pointing out that FUMA is challenging him and HARASHIMA for the KO-D Tag Titles on 10/2. They shook hands but Urano then blindsided FUMA with the Tombstone Piledriver.
Hiroshi Fukuda was not happy to take on five wrestlers in a Handicap match. He demanded to Tsurumi Amon that if he won the match, he should get a prize of his choosing. Amon accepted the idea but Fukuda tricked him by switching spots with Gota Ihashi before the match. DJ Nira defended Ihashi and teamed with him to make it 4 Vs 2 only to betray him with a Rocket Punch. Fukuda gave Ihashi the Perfect Plex but only got a two count. Fukuda reacted with a loud “Nooooooooooo!!!!” Ihashi capitlised on Fukuda’s shock and pinned him to win the match. Amon asked an upset Fukuda what his wish was. Fukuda wanted to become just like Vince and promote his own show. Amon misunderstood and thought Fukuda meant Vince Russo and he wanted the return of WCW and Monday Nitro. Fukuda meant he wanted to run his own brand in Shin-Kiba and turn it into an American wrestling territory. He wants to call it United Superstars Action, USA for shot. Amon actually liked the idea and told Fukuda it can happen in the spring. Fukuda is already taking match suggestions on Twitter. One request was Antonio Honda Vs Jerry Lawler. Fukuda replied he will save that match for when he books Madison Square Garden.
Shigehiro Irie has signed a contract with DDT and is now an official full time DDT wrestler. Irie noted his humble beginnings wrestling in Nagoya leading him into DDT. Tsurumi Amon gave Irie his first order as a DDT employee, name every season in English. Irie could only knew Summer. Amon told him to do his best in the future.
There is another trainee coming into DDT. So far the name for this person I can find is T. Koda. The person was joined in the ring by the Tokyo Women’s Wrestling trainees during the announcement. Referee Daisuke Kiso was chosen to be Chikage Kiba’s opponent for the Sambo Exhibition on TWW’s preview event in Akihabara on 30/1.
