A busy day for the wrestlers who held a Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere ContractYasu Urano regained possession of a contract by pinning Keisuke Ishii in the main event, also defending his KO-D Tag Team Title with HARASHIMA in the process. But the big story was Makoto Oishi winning a contract from Akito and later cashing it in to challenge Shigehiro Irie for the KO-D Openweight Title. Despite having just wrestled and lost in the main event, Irie was able to defeat Oishi and register V1 for his title run.

The team of Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi has not blended well together since forming. Their defeat to the Monster Army today was caused when Owashi accidentally knocked out Takagi with a Lariat.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

5. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title: Kaori Yoneyama (c) Vs Nazo Fukumen B

The threat from a group of mysterious masked people is beginning to grow in Union. The Nazo Fukumen now consists of four people. Nazo Fukumen P has told reporters the gang’s aim is to bring true peace to the world. Every conflict on the planet is caused by the entire human race facing different directions. If all humans lived facing the same direction, there would be peace. He then went on a rant about how American toilets are better than Japanese toilets, so no prizes for guessing who is under the mask. The Nazo Fukumen also aim to commercialize their mask and turn it into a popular piece of merchandise.

Choun-Shiryu has brought SAGAT back from China and he is looking… different. SAGAT is now a Chinese Vampire and is under Shiryu’s control. Shiryu aims to do the same to Ryu Gouma so he can add a Chinese Vampire Lawyer to his growing army.

Hiroshi Fukuda and Mio Shirai are the new commentators for Union’s online broadcasts. Despite their recent banishments from competing inside the Union ring, Naomi Susan was able to bring them back into the brand under non-wrestling roles.

For those of you who think Japan needs more sports entertainment, the debut show of Ultimate Superstars Action wass exactly what you are looking for. After the show opening pyro, “Mr. Perfect” Hiroshi Fukuda and his manager Rikiya Hart to perform the American national anthem. Fukuda then invited out the owner of USA and made a promise to him that today will be a happy day for the USA Superstars. King Aiba was the commentator in the Spanish Announce Table while Susan Garcia handled ring announcing duties.

The first match was Mr. Perfect successfully defending the US Heavyweight Title against Rabbit Miu. Fukuda got a cheap victory thanks to Rikiya Heart tripping Miu from outside the ring. After the match, Fukuda yelled at the fans to respect him. Hara Cena interrupted Fukuda and challenged him to put the US Title on the line in the main event.

Middle Eastern tag team Michael Sheik & Masa de Bali attempted to burn the American flag before their USA World Tag Team Title defence. Hulk Petit Hogan & The Kikutimate Warrior came to the rescue and defeated the evil foreigners to become the new Tag Team Champions!

Eddie Showtime came out next for the IC Title match. Despite being the challenger, Eddie introduced the champion and his “mamacita” Choina. He told her he did not want to fight this evening, handed her a red rose and then asked her out to dinner so he can feel her “Latina Heat”. Choina answered with a Clothesline and the match begun. Choina beat Eddie with a Power Bomb to keep her championship but she rewarded her man with a kiss on the cheek afterwards.

The $10,000 Backbreaker Challenge was next. Fukuda brought out Okaberg, a powerful Jackhammer of a man he found inside an American prison. He challenged anyone to escape from Okaberg’s Argentine Backbreaker. Three young wrestlers entered the contest and all of them failed. Okaberg was then added into the main event.

Ricky Fuji was inducted into the USA Hall of Fame. Fuji’s speech was just “Thank you. I’m so happy! Woooooo!!” A mystery Honky Tonk Man interrupted the ceremony but Fuji put him in his place by smashing a guitar over his head.

The semi-main event presented by AV company Idea Pocket and fittingly pitted Mako Venus against The Knotfather. After some unsexy dancing, The Knotfather picked up the win with the Pimp Drop.

The main event was Japan’s first ever Elimination Chamber match. Unfortunately the actual chamber was too big to fit inside Shin-Kiba 1st RING so they just brought in the capsules for the inactive wrestlers to stay in before they entered the match. The rules were also changed to where eliminations only occured when wrestlers were thrown over the top rope and both feet touched the ground outside. Fukuda defend his US Title for the second time in the show and survived fighting Hara Cena, Okaberg, Poldust, The Big Shoe and KI Punk. But the night did not end so happily for the champ. He brawled with Hara Cena up to the entrance and was given the Attitude Adjustment off of the stage! Okaberg then grabbed Rikiya Hart and did the same thing, throwing Hart from the stage to the floor below. The show ended with Hara Cena & Okaberg having a staredown.

Hanayashiki Wrestling

Tokyo Asakusa Hanayashiki
379 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

4 Way Mixed Tag Team Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Yuzuki Aikawa defeated Danshoku Dino & Yoshiko, Kota Ibushi & Jaiko Ishikawa and Michael Nakazawa & Miho Wakizawa when Aikawa submitted Nakazawa with a Hooters Attack (53:15).

DDT held its first ever 4 Way Mixed Tag Match in a street to celebrate the wrestling career of Yuzuki Aikawa. The location was the same theme park that has held DDT’s previous “Anywhere Pro Wrestling” events and many of its rides and attractions played a part in the match once again. The night belonged to 222cm Big Guns, aka the team of Sanshiro Takagi & Yuzuki Aikawa. They used Michael Nakazawa & Miho Wakizawa as target practice at a fairground shooting range and rode mechanical pandas while Kota Ibushi, Jaiko Ishikawa, Danshoku Dino and Yoshiko all fought each other in between rollercoaster rides. The four teams then fought inside a merry-go-round where Yoshiko thought it would be the perfect time to hold hands with Ibushi. As the wrestlers dragged each other into a nearby pond, Nakazawa disappeared. He came back dressed in Aikawa’s Sentai Power Ranger Blue costume, which was very revealing from behind. He attacked Takagi and kicked him into a castle of chairs that just so happened to have been set up that day. Back in the pond, Ibushi did a Cancun Tornado from the bridge onto everyone below in the water. Ishikawa dealt a great deal of damage on Aikawa, giving her the Thunder Fire into the pond.

Those still fighting moved back to the stage where Nakazawa got the upper hand and gave everyone the Ultimate Venom Arm. But when he thought he was the last one standing, a voice suddenly yelled “Yuzupon!” It was Aikawa to the rescue, dressed in a skimpy Stars & Stripes bathing suit. She and Takagi overpowered Nakazawa and had an emotional moment. Takagi asked Aikawa if she thought pro wrestling was fun. Aikawa cried and said it was. They then struck Nakazawa over his back with a Double Yuzupon Kick and Aikawa finished him off with her bouncy cleavage to win the match.

Afterwards Takagi and Aikawa repeated their exchange about pro wrestling being fun. Aikawa promoted Stardom’s big show in Sumo Hall on 29th April that will include her retirement match. She only wrestled for two and a half years but she will have a lot of memories when she is done. She also hopes that with a month left to go, she does not get injured before she retires. Everyone then got together as group and screamed “We Are Stardom!”

Objection! Ryu Gouma Comeback, Sapporo Specialty 4 Way

March 25, 2013

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ryu Gouma Return Match: Ryu Gouma Vs Cao Zhang (w/ Choun-Shiryu)
2. Shuji Ishikawa Vs Daichi Kazato
3. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title: Kaori Yoneyama (c) Vs Nazo Fukumen B

The law student turned pro wrestler turned lawyer will return to Union for his first match since November 2011. Ryu Gouma, who took his name from Ryuma Go isn’t the biggest or the strongest or the toughest or the most athletic guy on the roster. But he has probably the most unique background out of anyone in Union. How a law degree is supposed to win him matches is anyone’s guess but at least the guy has heart.

Sapporo Teisan Hall

1. Daisuke Sasaki Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. KUDO Vs Masa Takanashi
3. Antonio Honda & Yoshihiko Vs Keisuke Ishii & Takao Soma
4. Kenichi Yamamoto & HARASHIMA Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Akito
5. Tomoya & MIKAMI Vs Makoto Oishi & Michael Nakazawa
6. Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi Vs DJ Nira & Yoshiko
7. Sapporo Specialty 4 Way Special Match: Shigehiro Irie Vs Kota Ibushi Vs Danshoku Dino Vs Yasu Urano

Sapporo is now acknowledged as the home of DDT’s crazy free for all matches. Expect the match to spill outside of the building at the very least. Yasu Urano currently holds one of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts and risks losing it if he gets pinned or submits in the match, even to the champion Shigehiro Irie.
