Kota Ibushi was given a send-off party before he left to prepare for the G1 Climax beginning later this week. As you would expect from DDT, the party was weird. It began with Danshoku Dino and Makoto Oishi in the ring sitting at a table with actor Hisaya Imabayashi (who looks a lot like Tsurumi Amon). Mr. Imabayashi told a ghost story while the arena lights dimmed down. The story that I loosely translated goes as follows:
You enter a bathroom stall and as you squat down you see graffiti written on the wall. The graffiti says “Look right”. You look to the wall on the right and there is graffiti that says look left. You look to the left and see graffiti on the wall that says “Look back”. You look back and see the graffiti has changed. It now says “Do not look behind you”. You fearfully look behind you only to see that there is nothing there. Then you find out there is no toilet paper. The end.
(If you were expecting something that at least matches Tales of the Crypt in the quality department you’ve come to the wrong place.)
Anyway, the three men in the ring then talked about the ghost story when DJ Nira interrupted and convinced everyone to take part in a quiz challenge along with Yukinori Matsui. Makoto Oishi got most of the questions right. “Wild Thing” began playing from the speakers and everybody threw water around the ring like Atsushi Onita until Michael Nakazawa came out and told them to stop. Kota Ibushi finally appeared and everybody in the ring gave him a message of support. They then played “Wild Thing” again and everybody dumped “ritual water” over Ibushi while declaring that he will win the G1.
Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi have decided who will team with them in the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title challenge at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2013”. What’s Sumo Hall without a sumo wrestler? Their partner is Akebono!
Emi Sakura was added to the All Night Nippon GOLD Battle Royal at the 17/8 Sumo Hall show. It took a lot of convincing from herself and Tetsuya Endo to get her in.
The show began with a performance by DPG, Hiroshi Fukuda’s music group consisting of himself and his friends dressed as superheroes. They played their debut song “Demon of the Ring” which is the theme song of Beer Garden Fight 2013.
