DDT “PLANT WRESTLING”, 29/05/2013
Miyaji Ironworks
146 Fans – Overcrowded

2 Vs 2 Vs 3 Handicap Falls Count Anywhere Match: Kazuyoshi Sakai, Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kota Ibushi and Michael Nakazawa & Hiroshi Fukuda when Sakai pinned Fukuda with the Danshoku Driver through a table (33:39).

It was a cloudy evening in Miyaji when DDT took over the Miyaji Ironworks plant for their annual Falls Count Anywhere match held in that location. This time around the match saw Kazuyoshi Sakai from Muscle return to action to team with Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi. Their opponent was supposed to be Sanshiro Takagi and his Elite Street Troops. They turned out to be Kota Ibushi and Michael Nakazawa! Actually it was just Ibushi. Nakazawa wasn’t needed and Takagi was confident enough that he and Ibushi would win a 3-on-2 Handicap match. Nakazawa argued that he should be included but his complaints fell on deaf ears. That was until Hiroshi Fukuda showed up. He was impressed by Nakazawa’s spirit and offered to team with him and turn the match into a three team affair.

The match itself saw Fukuda bring out a drum filled with lime powder that eventually covered everyone in a cloud of dust. Takagi brought along a guitar and sang “Lullaby of the Jagged Heart” before hitting his opponents with it. Ibushi Moonsaulted off of a telephone pole. According to Ibushi this is either the 3rd or 4th time he jumped off a telephone pole. He was in elementary school when he did it the first time. Sakai put on Dino’s tights and gained the power of Danshoku. He put Fukuda through a table with the Danshoku Driver and pinned him to win the chaotic match.

The Monster Army’s big guns are the first team to go after Hikaru Sato & Yukio Sakaguchi for the KO-D Tag Team Titles.

A fake M Samurai is on the loose! Kazuki Hirata had his own custom made El Samurai mask when he joined the Samurai Sentai Samurai Rangers but it went missing and he had to wear a plastic bag with the mask drawn on it over his head ever since. The mask was last seen worn by Samurai TV! personality Miki Motoi but that is no guarantee she is the person Hirata will fight in the Mask Contra Mask dark match.
