6. Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated Antonio Honda & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Ishii pinned Honda with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (10:40).
7. KUDO, Masa Takanashi & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Akito when KUDO pinned Oishi with the Buzzsaw Kick (13:55).

After scoring the pin in the main event, KUDO called out for any of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract holders to come out and challenge him. When none of them came out he then turned his attention to his next confirmed challenger Akito and talked about their upcoming match KO-D Openweight Title match. Akito told him it was going to be a war and he is the future of DDT.

Keisuke Ishii is utterly focused on getting an All Asia Tag Team Title shot. He yelled out “Akiyama!” before he delivered an Exploder Suplex to Tomomitsu Matsunaga in their tag match. He and Shigehiro Irie also have a new double team move called the Go 2 Irie Sleep. It involves Ishii lifting up his opponent in the Go 2 Sleep position while Irie kneels down beside them. Ishii then throws the victim face first into Irie’s head. After the match Ishii showed a video of himself confronting Jun Akiyama and Yoshinobu Kanemaru demanding a title shot. Both of them rejected the challenge and walked off. The video then showed Ishii approaching Akiyama in a public toilet only for Akiyama to yell at him “I’m pissing, go away!” Back in the building Ishii said he will got to Akiyama’s dojo to ask again and he will record the meeting to show at next week’s show in Kawasaki.

With the Monster Army disbanded both Daisuke Sasaki and Antonio Honda decided it was time for a fresh start. Sasaki asked if he could team with the Golden Lovers (but not with Gota Ihashi). Both Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega said he could but they were then interrupted by Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata. Takagi challenged them to a Lucha Libre 6-Man Tag match. Sasaki worked well with the Golden Lovers, he even pulled off the PK Mind with Omega to win the match. Amon Tsurumi granted the new trio a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title shot for the 12th April Kasukabe Hall show. Omega said he was reluctant to have Sasaki on his team instead of Ihashi but admitted they were a powerful team regardless.

Guanchulo cashed in his Right To Face Your Favourite Wrestler Contract to get a match with Kikutaro before he returns to Chile on 28th May. Kikutaro used his tricks to get Yukinori Matsui involved in the match and they proved to be the deciding factor. Afterwards Kikutaro thanked Guanchulo for choosing him to be his opponent.  Danshoku Dino announced the return of Danshoku Ranch Classic will happen on 20th May and it will be a farewell show for Guanchulo. He will also put his DDT Extreme Title on the line against Guanchulo in Kasukabe Hall on 12th April.

The DDT trainees Shunma Katsumata and Shun Miyatake pleaded with Amon Tsurumi to let them have another exhibition match. They were both unhappy that their bout at “JUDGEMENT 2014” ended in a draw. Miyatake also wants to prove he is ready to debut properly. Tsurumi allowed the match to happen with the stipulation that Miyatake will earn his debut match if he wins. Miyatake wasn’t able to capitalise on his oppotunity and lost to Katsumata in 91 seconds.

HARASHIMA and Yasu Urano will continue to team together under the name UraShima. They are willing to team with other wrestlers but have no plans to recruit a third member.

The final turned out to be a preview for the 13th April main event as Kota Ibushi and Konosuke Takeshita took each other on, with Ibushi winning. Takeshita told Ibushi he beat his right arm but his left arm is stronger.

After losing his Right To Challenge Contract earlier in the night, Kazuki Hirata quickly replaced it with Masa Takanashi’s contract after he pinned him in a 10-Man Tag match. Hirata spent the night wearing a Magnum TOKYO mask in between his matches.

The night ended with a performance of Hulk Hogan Gymnastics by Antonio Honda.

Gorikiko approached Ohka and Imanari asking to join the war between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Union. Naturally she will be pitted against Cherry.

UNION “MARCH OF THE UNION 2014” Results

March 23, 2014

UNION “MARCH OF THE UNION 2014”, 23/03/2014
Kawasaki Plaza Sol
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Mitomi Masayuki Vs Yumehito Imanari ended in a Double Count Out (4:33).
2. No DQ, No Count Out: Ken Ohka, Tomohiro Otani & Yumehito Imanari defeated Seiya Morohashi, Daichi Kazato & Mitomi Masayuki when Ohka pinned Kazato with the Spear Of Fire (7:47).
3. Idea Pocket Presents: Anarko Montaña & Ryu Gouma defeated Menso~re Oyaji & Tomoya Kawamura when Montaña pinned Kawamura with a Moonsault (6:42).
4. Hikaru Sato defeated SAGAT with a Single Leg Crab Hold (6:47).
5. Shuji Ishikawa, FUMA & Ladybeard defeated Hiroshi Fukuda, HIROKI & Freddy Martello when Ladybeard pinned Fukuda with the Nutcracker (9:55).
6. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title: Cherry (c) defeated Mio Shirai with the Spring Night Love (6:17).
*V3 for Cherry.
7. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka defeated Ivan Markov (c) with the Zan Isamu Leg (19:00).
*Ivan Markov fails in V2. Isami Kodaka becomes the 2nd Union MAX Champion!

The Union MAX Title is finally around the waist of a Union wrestler. Isami Kodaka had little time to recover from a successful BJW Death Match Title defence against Ryuji Ito to challenge for Union’s new championship held by the Russian Ivan Markov. The big turning point of the match was Kodaka countering a Super Power Bomb onto a stack of chairs outside the ring. Kodaka blocked the move and instead sent Markov into the chairs with a Hurricanrana. Isami won with the Isamu Zan Leg but offered a handshake to Markov after the match. He called Markov a strong wrestler who can go home to Russia proud of his performance. Markov shook his hand and afterward disbanded World Men’s Club.

Hikaru Sato stepped up to be the first challenger for Kodaka. He introduced himself as a Pancrase fighter who chose to rest in Union for a while. Kodaka took offence and told Sato Union is not a station so he should go somewhere else to rest. Kodaka accepted the challenge but FUMA then asked him why Sato got a shot so easily? Kodaka told him he will prove to Sato that Union is not a resting place.

Hikaru Sato’s entrance music tonight was “You Spin Me Round” by Dead Or Alive. Just wanted to point that out.

Cherry put away Mio Shirai to keep her Fly To Everywhere Title after weeks of bitchy comments between the two. Cherry told Mio that she was able to beat her because of how important the championship is. Ladybeard suddenly appeared after the match. He said he likes to wear women’s clothing so he wants to wrestle more with women in Union. He promises to bring a cute Japanese friend with him to wrestle at Union’s show in Korakuen Hall next month. He had to convince Naomi Susan that his friend really is a woman for her to consider his request.

Hiroshi Fukuda and HIROKI had a falling out over their 6-Man Tag loss to the Union Sekigun. Fukuda blamed HIROKI for not listening to a highly skilled wrestler such as himself. HIROKI in turn criticised Fukuda for cheating and told him he doesn’t understand wrestling. HIROKI brought in his UWA Tag Team Title and dared Fukuda to challenge for it. Fukuda said he would and brought in MEN’s Teioh to be his partner. HIROKI then introduced his partner and the title co-holder Yasu Urano! The title match was set for 27th April.

Ganbare☆Wrestling stepped up its attacks on Union with Ken Ohka leading his team to ambush Mitomi Masayuki in the opener. Seiya Morohashi & Daichi Kazato came to the rescue and the opening match ended in a double count out. The brawling between both sides continued so it turned into a 6-Man Tag No DQ match. The Ganbare team came out on top when Ohka pinned Kazato with the Spear Of Fire. Ohka then challenged Union to an Elimination Match in Kitizawa on 6th April and demanded Shuji Ishikawa to be included on Union’s team. Ishikawa accepted and another brawl broke out.

5b. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere 2: Masa Takanashi (10:34).

5d. Right To Fight Favourite Wrestler: Guanchulo (13:46).
5e. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere 4: Super Sasadango Machine (15:38).
6. KO-D Openweight Title: KUDO defeated HARASHIMA (c) with the Diving Double Knee Drop (19:54).
*HARASHIMA fails in V7. KUDO becomes the 47th KO-D Openweight Champion!

DDT celebrates its 17th Anniversary with a new KO-D Openweight Champion! After seven months of dominating the main event scene, HARASHIMA was finally knocked off his throne by his former ally KUDO. The new champion gloated about how his win was the result of him leaving UraShimaKudo and he would wait for a rematch anytime. HARASHIMA and Yasu Urano glared at KUDO but both left. With the former champion out of the way, KUDO now has a whole host of new challengers ahead.

The annual free for all that is the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract Battle Royal returned with six prizes on the line. A KO-D Title shot at Korakuen Hall on 29th April was the prize to the winner of the Royal Rumble portion of the match. The other portion was a Ladder Match with five contracts hanging above the ring, four of them with smiley faces and one with a skull on it. Tetsuya Endo, Masa Takanashi, Kazuki Hirata and Super Sasadango Machine each grabbed a smiley face contract, giving them a KO-D Title shot whenever they want. Guanchulo got the skull contract which turned out to be the right to challenge his favourite wrestler to a match. Akito last eliminated Konosuke Takeshita to win the Rumble match and get next month’s title shot. At the end of the show Akito told KUDO that there will be no more HARASHIMA’s challenging him because he will win the belt. The current generation on top in DDT will not last forever and he is here to be the future.

Guanchulo cashed in his contract and decided to have a match with Kikutaro. The match will take place on 29th March. The other contracts can be cashed in at any show until 2nd August. But just like last year, contracts can change hands if the holder is pinned or submitted in any match held inside Japan. Amon asked if anyone was going to cash in their contract before the April Korakuen show. Endo said he wants to cherish the contract because it’s his first time, so he will not cash it in yet. Sasadango also declined because he wants to train for his title match. Takanashi said he will not betray his “big brother” and will not challenge KUDO. Hirata was the only person who said he will cash in his contract at Korakuen next month.

Retired DDT wrestler Atsuo Sawada was a guest at the show and spoke about the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title that he originally created 14 years ago. He said it was amazing that the championship is close to crowning its 1,000th champion. The 999th champion Sanshiro Takagi knew all too well about this since he was chased by Gorgeous Matsuno and Gota Ihashi throughout the show. During his speech celebrating DDT’s 17th Anniversary, Takagi announced he was sealing the Iron Man Title. Takagi said 999 was a nice number for the title lineage to end and he was also sick of wrestlers constantly attacking him. Sawada protested because he created the title to be defended all the time and to be won by any wrestler or thing. Takagi tried to convince Sawada to accept the decision by comparing the number of title reigns to Galaxy Express 999 but eventually gave up. Amon Tsurumi then announced that the title will be defended in Kasukabe Hall on 12th April.

Despite losing all three matches in their trial series, Michael Nakazawa & Tomomitsu Matsunaga finally impressed Amon Tsurumi with their performance. Their KO-D Tag Team Title defeat to the Golden Lovers got Tsurumi to say “Michael & Matsunaga did real good!” Kota Ibushi called both wrestlers strong in the post-match interview but he and Kenny Omega also pointed out that there are no immediate challengers for them to face next.

The Monster Army had its final battle and for the occasion Antonio Honda asked the opposing team if they could drop their guard so the entire Army could do a surprise attack one more time. After the match Honda said the unit will live on in his breast. His nipple to be exact.

Keisuke Ishii has been left feeling depressed after he and Soma Takao failed to win the All Asia Tag Team Titles in All Japan last Tuesday. That match was Ishii’s second chance to win the belts and he came up short again. He considered giving up the challenge and no longer chase after the belts. Amon Tsurumi encouraged Ishii to not give up and if Ishii couldn’t win the belts with Takao then he should try again with Shigehiro Irie. He instructed Ishii to record a video of himself asking for another title match and to send the video to Jun Akiyama.

New trainees Shunma Katsumata and Shun Miyatake fought to a five minute draw in a pre-show exhibition. Afterwards Tsurumi announced that Katsumata will have his debut wrestling match on the next Korakuen show on 29th April. Miyatake asked when he was going to debut. Amon was surprised by the question and told Miyatake that he is 100 years too early to even talk about having a debut.

DDT will get a new show on Samurai! TV soon. The show is called DDT Wrestling Banzai \(^o^)/.


Quite A Lot Of Marching Going On In Kawasaki

March 20, 2014

UNION “MARCH OF THE UNION 2014”, 23/03/2014
Kawasaki Plaza Sol

1. Mitomi Masayuki Vs Yumehito Imanari
2. Seiya Morohashi & Daichi Kazato Vs Ken Ohka & Tomohiro Otani
3. Hikaru Sato Vs SAGAT
4. Idea Pocket Presents: Ryu Gouma Vs Menso~re Oyaji Vs Tomoya Kawamura
5. Shuji Ishikawa, FUMA & Ladybeard Vs Hiroshi Fukuda, HIROKI & Freddy Martello
6. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title: Cherry (c) Vs Mio Shirai
7. Union MAX Title: Ivan Markov (c) Vs Isami Kodaka

Ivan Markov sent a message to Union for his upcoming Union MAX Title against Isami Kodaka. Markov calls his challenger one of the most dangerous wrestlers in Japan and he understands why he has to face him. Markov accuses the Japanese of hating the fact that a gaijin has their championship and no matter how cool Isami acts, the fact is Markov has beaten him once and he will do it again soon.

Mio Shirai was absent from Union’s last press conference because she was busy wrestling for Oz Academy. She was represented at the conference by a drawing of a fox and was mocked by Cherry. Shirai found out about the drawing and had it with her at today’s conference. She asked if a 39 year old woman drew the picture, pretended to be her and made fun of her wearing dark make up. Mio admits to wearing the make up but says it’s okay for someone as young as her to wear it, unlike Cherry. In regards to the Fly To Everywhere Title, Shirai has never heard any wrestler in any of the four promotions she works for say “I want that belt.” But when she becomes the champion everyone will then want to win it.

Ladybeard is in action for the first time in Union after revealing his true self. He sides with Union in their latest battle with the World Men’s Club. With MEN’s Teioh currently out of action, the Club has brought in HIROKI to take his place.

Another mysterious message made up of paper and magazine clippings was delivered to Union HQ. The message has something to do with the Hikaru Sato Vs SAGAT match.

Shinichiro Tominaga has been forced to pull out of the show after dislocating his left shoulder. Tomohiro Otani takes his place on the Ganbare☆Wrestling team.

The latest Idea Pocket Diva joining the show is Nami Minami.

TOKYO WOMEN’S WRESTLING “KAWASAKI FIRST MARCH”, 05/04/2014
Kawasaki Plaza Sol

1. Erin Debut Match: Erin Vs KANNA
2. 3 Way Match: Chikage Kiba Vs Shoko Nakajima Vs Ririko Kendo
3. Yuka Sakazaki Vs Saki Akai
4. Miyu Yamashita Vs Nonoko

Miyu Yamashita is determined to defeat Nonoko so the plump woman will not become the face of Tokyo Women’s Wrestling. Nonoko says she takes pro wrestling seriously and told a tearful story about doing rock climbing and swimsuit modelling to make a living. She found pro wrestling and wanted to find acceptance as a 22 year old woman. Yamashita didn’t care for her long story and called out Nonoko for lying about her age.

Yuka Sakazaki is unsure what to make of her opponent Saki Akai. She thinks Akai is 2m 80cm tall so she’s been watching Attack On Titan to learn how to beat giants. If Akai is a Titan then that means her weakness is the back of her neck. Sakazaki then asked Tetsuya Koda if she could bring a knife into the match to chop the back of Saki’s neck with but he told her no.

The trainee previously known as Korei now has a new ring name for her official debut. She will now be called Erin and her debut match will be against KANNA. The inspiration for the name comes from the song “Help Me, Erin!!” which she found on Nico Nico Douga. Obviously the song is going to be her entrance music.

Ladybeard will be one of the musical performers on the show.

Ayumi Takada has resigned from Tokyo Women’s Wrestling. She said she could not continue training to her limits while trying to live as a member of society.
