DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU IN FUJI ~DRAMATIC DREAM TSUKENAPORITAN~”, 16/02/2014
Shizuoka Fuji-san Messe
264 Fans – No Vacancy

1. MIKAMI defeated Michael Nakazawa with the Swanton Bomb (9:51).
2. Sanshiro Takagi & DJ Nira defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Gota Ihashi when Takagi pinned Ihashi with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb (5:24).
3. Antonio Honda defeated Kazuki Hirata with the Octopus Hold (7:40).
4. Daisuke Sasaki defeated Tetsuya Endo with the Now Or Never (13:57).
5. Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega defeated Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi when Ibushi pinned Oishi after the PK Mind Ω (12:23).
6. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Yasu Urano defeated Masa Takanashi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Akito when HARASHIMA pinned Takanashi with the Somato (14:54).

The show was lucky to go ahead when snowy conditions around Japan prevented the DDT ring truck from travelling to Shizuoka. Thankfully DDT got a replacement ring from a local promotion called Numazu Pro Wrestling. The Golden Lovers held an autograph session to make up for the show running late while the new ring was being constructed.

Masa Takanashi has not been able to present himself as a strong contender for HARASHIMA and today’s show proved that. The KO-D Champion pinned his next challenger in the main event. KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi continued their aggressive fighting with each other in the same match.

Today also happened to be Makoto Oishi’s 35th birthday and his mother was in the audience to watch her son team with Danshoku Dino against the Golden Lovers. She got a hug and kiss on the cheek from the Golden Lovers after the match.

TOKYO WOMEN’S WRESTLING “TOKYO CIRCUIT 2014 ROUND 2”, 15/02/2014
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
90 Fans

1. Chikage Kiba defeated Ayumi Takeda with a Cross Kneebar (4:11).
2. Miyu Yamashita defeated Ririko Kendo with the Crash Rabbit Heat (6:02).
3. Nonoko & KANNA defeated Shoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki when Nonoko pinned Nakajima with the Pie Fly Flow (10:00).

Despite snowy weather causing some problems such as delaying one of the idol acts from arriving in time to perform, the show was able to take place as normal.

Tension is building between Miyu Yamashita and Nonoko after the events of today’s show. Yamashita’s match against Ririko Kendo was supposed to be the main event but Nonoko interrupted the opening of the show complaining about that decision. She felt her match should go on last because she is a main eventer. Tetsuya Koda decided the main event would be decided by whoever won a game of Ass Sumo. Nonoko and Yamashita had to stand back-to-back on a box and attempt to bump each other off it to win. Nonoko won easily because of her plump body.

Nonoko & KANNA were victorious in the main event but Yamashita approached Nonoko again in the ring. Yamashita accepted losing to Nonoko in the Ass Sumo contest but also said she would beat Nonoko in a wrestling match. Koda stepped in and said he knows a great little venue for that match to happen and booked the match for 5th April in Kawasaki Plaza Sol.

Chikage Kiba announced she passed her exam into a private university. She is now stress free and looking forward to living the dream of a campus life. She promises to continue working hard in both wrestling and education.

3a. Ryu Gouma defeated Seiya Morohashi when he answered a quiz question correctly (6:36).
3b. Ryu Gouma defeated Seiya Morohashi when he answered a quiz question correctly (9:59).
*Seiya Morohashi fails in V1. Ryu Gouma becomes the 4th Aipoke World Champion!
4. Hikaru Sato defeated Tomoya Kawamura with a Crab Hold (7:21).
5. Shuji Ishikawa defeated Richard Burn with a Swinging Sleeper (5:29).
6. Hardcore Match: Isami Kodaka, FUMA & SAGAT defeated Ivan Markov, Freddy Martello & Hiroshi Fukuda (w/ MEN’S Teioh) when Kodaka pinned Martello with the Zan Isamu Leg (15:44).

Union won the latest battle against World MEN’s Club, a 6-Man Tag that was fought under Hardcore rules by request of the Club. The Union team were ambushed as they made their entrance and the two sides utilised plenty of chairs to hurt each other. Isami Kodaka withstood Freddy Martello’s attacks and put him away with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a fold out chair followed by the Zan Isamu Leg. After the match Kodaka told Ivan Markov that the match was hotter than the Winter Olympics going on in Sochi right now and that he wants a Union MAX Title shot next month!

Richard Burn returned to show off his fighting ability yet again, this time against the big man of Union, Shuji Ishikawa. Burn was accompanied by a man wearing glasses who acted as his cornerman, yelling instructions and motivating him with martial art stances. Ishikawa proved too strong to handle and applied a deep Sleeper Hold, going as far as to lift Burn off his feet and swing him in a circle until he submitted. Burn thanked Ishikawa for a good fight and asked for another match sometime. Ishikawa accepted.

That wasn’t the last appearance of Burn and his companion. They both reappeared at the end of the show wearing bikini tops and mini skirts with their hair in pigtails. Burn took the mic and said his real name was Ladybeard and he loves to wear women’s clothing! He appealed to join Union. Ishikawa said he could and everybody welcomed him. They are not creeped out by Burn’s sudden change because according to Kodaka, “Nothing is scary to us anymore.”

Hikaru Sato has jumped ship to Union, at least for the time being. Sato was the mysterious opponent for the rookie Tomoya Kawamura and the result was no surprise. In the post-match interview Sato explained that Union is a nice resting place for him to have a break after a good journey. He denied coming over to Union for the Aipoke World Title.

The Aipoke World Title was on the line in a Best 2 out of 3 Quiz match. Every time a wrestler pinned his opponent for one second or forced him to use a rope break, one of the Idea Pocket Divas would ask him a quiz question. First wrestler to answer two questions correctly wins the match. Seiya Morohashi easily pinned Ryu Gouma several times but was so excited he kept on giving wrong answers immediately instead of taking the time to think. Eventually Gouma was able to pin Morohashi twice and answer both questions correctly to became the new Aipoke Champion! Super Sasadango Machine appeared after the match to challenge Gouma to a title match at Korakuen Hall in May. They shook hands but Sasadango then gave Gouma the Verdict.

Union’s other war right now is with the invading Ganbare☆Wrestling led by Ken Ohka. Daichi Kazato & Mitomi Masayuki were ready to fight the Ganpuro team of Ohka & Yumehito Imanari but did not expect former Union wrestler Shinichiro Tominaga to show up with them. The match quickly turned into a brawl and had to be called off as the four wrestlers were fighting all over the arena. When things settled down, Ohka introduced the Union team to Tominaga and asked for the match to restart with Tominaga taking Imanari’s place. Everyone agreed and the bell rang. Tominaga bloodied Kazato’s mouth with punches and wiped out Masayuki with a Moonsault, leaving Ohka to put away Kazato with the Spear. Tominaga screamed out how happy he was quitting Union and how Ganpuro revived him. The trio later picked a fight with Seiya Morohashi until Naomi Susan stepped in and demanded them to leave.

Cherry and Mio Shirai weren’t able to work well as a team for Shirai’s first match as a full time Union wrestler. They were still able to win but Shirai thought she had to do it by herself. She challenged Cherry to a Fly To Everywhere Title match and declared she will change the world of women’s wrestling. Naomi Susan booked the match for Yokohama on 23rd March. Mio told Cherry to protect the belt tightly.

DDT “BLUE LIGHT YOKOHAMA 2014 ~WINTER~”, 11/02/2014
Yokohama Radiant Hall
364 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Lucha Libre Rules: Daisuke Sasaki, Guanchulo & Anarko Montaña defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Sasaki submitted Hirata with the Campana (9:42).
2. 4 Way Match: Hoshitango defeated MIKAMI, Gota Ihashi and DJ Nira when Hoshitango pinned Ihashi after the Swanton Bomb from MIKAMI (3:55).
3. Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi & Akito when Soma pinned Oishi with the Gin And Tonic (9:36).
4. Danshoku Dino defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Danshoku Destroyer (8:19).
5. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yasu Urano (c) defeated Tetsuya Endo with a Cradle (13:00).
*V1 for Yasu Urano.
6. Kenny Omega defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga with the One-Winged Angel (18:04).
7. Masa Takanashi & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated HARASHIMA & KUDO when Takanashi pinned KUDO after a Knee To The Face from Sakaguchi (13:16).

Call it luck or fortunate circumstances but Masa Takanashi pinned KUDO in the main event to send a message to HARASHIMA. Sure, Yukio Sakaguchi was the one who knocked out KUDO with a knee to the face but Takanashi was the one who pinned him. KUDO got a measure of revenge when he struck Takanashi with a Spin Kick during the post-match promos. KUDO then brawled with Sakaguchi as the show drew to a close.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga tried to summon the powers of Daniel Bryan by getting the fans to chant “Yes! Yes!” during his match with Kenny Omega. Unfortunately the One-Winged Angel put a stop to that harder than Rey Mysterio’s entrance at this year’s Royal Rumble.

Team Dream Futures built some momentum for their upcoming KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title shot when Soma Takao pinned Makoto Oishi. But that momentum was stopped one match later when Danshoku Dino defeated Keisuke Ishii.

Guanchulo’s friend from Chile turned out to be Anarko Montaña from MAX Lucha Libre. Montaña wrestles in a Robin Mask mask and a tartan kilt. Guanchulo & Montaña have sided with the Monster Army for the time being. The opening match was fought under Lucha Libre rules after Sasaki’s team demanded it. Ring announcer Rikiya Shindo was forced to be the second referee with Daisuke Kiso, a decision that angered Yukinori Matsui because he wasn’t picked and he also had to hand over his referee shirt. When the match ended, Matsui got his shirt back by force.

It was announced that Konosuke Takeshita passed his entry exam into the Nippon Sport Science University. To celebrate, he will go through a three match series beginning at the 23/2 Korakuen Hall show. His first match will be himself and Tetsuya Endo against Michael Nakazawa & Tomomitsu Matsunaga.

Former DDT wrestler Daichi Kakimoto announced he was leaving his job as store manager for the DDT Drop Kick Bar in Shinjuku. Isami Kodaka will become the new store manager next month. Kodaka said he will make Drop Kick become a fun place for people to drink happily.

DDT “YAROZ PART 1” Results

DDT “YAROZ PART 1”, 09/02/2014
Shin-kiba 1st RING
183 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Solidly Single Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Daichi Kazato with the Combine (8:16).
2. White Doe & Aoki Wolves – 3 Way Embarrassment Match: Misaki Ohata defeated Antonio Honda and Seiya Morohashi when Ohata made Morohashi say “I’m embarrassed!” (8:05).

5. Clash At Last! Sudden Realisation Of The Forbiddon: Keizo Matsuda defeated Danshoku Dino with a Tombstone Piledriver (9:36).
6. Value Of Man Is Not A Plane! BOYZ Vs YaroZ: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Shigehiro Irie defeated HARASHIMA, Makoto Oishi & Tetsuya Endo when Irie pinned Oishi with the Flying Sausage (17:29).

Turns out I was using a non-vulgar translation of the show name and this show was indeed vulgar. AssholeZ it is, then.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Amon Tsurumi were originally supposed to host the show but they were mysteriously absent. Taking their place were guest MCs Brother Tommy and Brother Mon. They explained this was a show for bastards, by bastards. They wanted to encourage everyone wrestling to unleash their inner bastard just for today.

The main event saw Team YaroZ facing Team BOYZ with the latter being uncomfortable with the surroundings. Makoto Oishi complained about a stinking smell coming from the audience. He also called his opponents ugly, fat and old. Shigehiro Irie was very upset at being called old. He got his revenge by pinning Oishi with the Flying Sausage.

Keizo Matsuda discovered his Danshoku side during his victory over Danshoku Dino. While at first overpowered by his opponent, Matsuda pulled down his tights to reveal he was wearing Danshoku tights underneath. He then used his newly found Danshoku ability to Lip Lock Dino and then pin him with the Tombstone. After the match Matsuda got his hands on some fans in the front row. He and Dino then did a Danshoku version of the Steiner Brothers pose on the stage. Brother Mon called it the birth of the Japanese Steiner Brothers.

The boxing match between Gota Ihashi and Kengo Mashimo was set for 45 one minute rounds with Yuzuki Aikawa providing some bouncy eye candy as the round girl. Aikawa however appeared in her regular everyday clothing because she had other things to do today. Ihashi and Mashimo had a slugfest but everybody noticed that everytime a round ended, Aikawa would remove a piece of clothing before holding the next round card. So Yukinori Matsui did everything he could to make sure the match continued even though Ihashi and Mashimo were beating the tar out of each other. At the end of the third round Aikawa promised to reveal her swimsuit if the fight made it to Round 5. Mashimo knocked out Ihashi in the 4th Round but Matsui counted as slowly as he could. Mashimo got sick of the stalling and said he was going home. With Mashimo leaving and Ihashi still unconcious, Brother Mon had no other choice but to call off the match. The arena broke out into chaos until Aikawa decided to strip down to her Stars & Stripes swimsuit much to the excitement of every man in the building.

Both Shuji Ishikawa and Kankuro Hoshino wrestled their hardcore match wearing fundoshi instead of their usual gear.

The Embarrassment Match involved Antonio Honda, Seiya Morohashi and Misaki Ohata trying to humiliate each other to win. The first person to make another wrestler yell “I’m embarrassed!” would be crowned the winner. At first they all tried to strip each other but soon Honda brought in a whip. Ohata got rid of Honda and whipped Morohashi’s bare backside enough to make him say he was embarrassed. Brother Tommy said afterwards that it was a terrible match.
