If it wasn’t clear before, it’s clear now. Shigehiro Irie is the man to beat in DDT. Today Irie scored a major victory over Kota Ibushi, knocking off his toughest challenger to keep the KO-D Openweight Title. Ibushi refused a handshake after the match but made up for it by raising Irie’s arm and admitting defeat. Daisuke Sasaki, MIKAMI and DJ Nira all came out taunting Irie with their Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts but none of them wanted to cash it in just yet. Since there was no clear challenger for the belt, Tsurumi Amon decided that HARASHIMA and Hikaru Sato will have a No. 1 Contender’s match in Osaka on 12th May. The winner will face Irie for the title in Hiroshima on 26th May. Irie misunderstood and thought he will have to defend the title in a 2 Vs 1 Handicap match. He relaxed when it was explained to him that wasn’t what was going to happen.
The KO-D Tag Team Championship is the first title Yukio Sakaguchi has ever won. He was very happy to win it.
DJ Nira was able to pin El Samurai when Michael Nakazawa pulled off Samurai’s mask with the Ultimate Venom Arm. Samurai used Nakazawa’s tights to cover his face but Nira capitalised and rolled him over for the pin.
MIKAMI announced a one night 8-Man tournament for Cruiser’s Game 11 in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 2nd June. The tournament will be a celebration of Jr. Heavyweight wrestling.
