*V2 for HARASHIMA.
HARASHIMA went through what has to be the weirdest challenge of his career today. DJ Nira stepped up to challenge him for the DDT Extreme Title but the champion couldn’t decide what match to have. Nira thought this meant the show was now cancelled. They eventually decided to make it best two out of three rounds with a different stipulation for every round. Round 1 had the rule where Nira would win if he pinned HARASHIMA for one second while HARASHIMA had to pin Nira for ten seconds to win. HARASHIMA avoided that handicap by making Nira tap out to a Wristlock. Round 2 had the rule where you were disqualified if you spoke. You could still make noise and Nira did ever time HARASHIMA kicked him, you just could not speak. Nira found a note and wanted HARASHIMA to read it, but he didn’t fall for the trap. Instead HARASHIMA embarrassed himself and lost the round when he yelled “Here I come” when he was about to finish off Nira. The deciding round was a Shiritori match. Shiritori is a Japanese version of the game where you have to say a word that begins with the last letter of the previous word. In this case, the players had to perform a wrestling move instead of just saying the word. A wrestler loses if he fails to do a suitable move three times or if he cannot continue.
The game went as follows. HARASHIMA began the round with an Iron Claw. Nira did the Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chin Crusher. Nira did a Desperation Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chickenwing Armlock. Nira did another Desperation Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chickenwing Facelock. Nira did a Rocket Punch to the neck (noticing a pattern?). HARASHIMA did a Choke Sleeper but that was disallowed, so he did a Choke Slam instead. Nira did the “Rocket Punch of Useless Resistance”. HARASHIMA did a Chop. Nira did the Rocket Punch Push. HARASHIMA did a different Chop but it wasn’t allowed. He struggled to think of a move until he figured out he could do the Ultra Somato. Nira tried to get up and do the Rocket Punch but he collapsed, giving HARASHIMA the victory!
Yukio Sakaguchi gains momentum for his upcoming KO-D Openweight Title match by pinning former champion KUDO in the semi-main tag match.
Danshoku Dino used his match against Tetsuya Endo to interrogate what the young wrestler has been up to during his absence. Makoto Oishi told the audience a rumour that Tetsuya Endo was not really Tetsuya Endo but someone pretending to be him. Guanchulo told Dino & Oishi that he saw Endo leaving the DDT dormitory late one night and ever since then he has acted differently. Dino did his usual tricks in the match and got Endo to confess. Endo said it was Kazuki Hirata’s birthday two days ago and he couldn’t afford to buy him the gift he wanted, so he got a part time job to get extra cash. The reason Endo has been acting differently is because of exhaustion. With the mystery solved, everyone began to sing Happy Birthday to the absent Hirata.
Michael Nakazawa used his appearance in the 4 Way Match to plug his new DVD. The DVD includes matches of Nakazawa and Tomomitsu Matsunaga teaming together as the Nuru Nuru Brothers. They brought the gimmick back during the match, covering themselves in lotion to slip out of their opponents’ moves. The plan backfired when Nakazawa tried to pin Makoto Oishi with La Magistral Cradle only for Oishi to slip away and roll up Nakazawa for the three count instead.
Amon Tsurumi announced the next KO-D Tag Team Titles defence will take place inside the Musashi Koganei Station shopping centre in Tokyo on 15th December. Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto will defend the belts in a 3 Way Match against Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata and HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano. The winners will then defend the titles in Hakata later that day against Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie.
