It was a busy afternoon in DDT with a lot going on. KUDO fought tooth and nail to keep his KO-D Openweight Title, first defeating Akito in a main event match that lasted almost 25 minutes. Akito tried to lock in the Triangle Scorpion to make KUDO tap just like he did in Saitama just over two weeks ago but the champion escaped the hold and delivered a Buzzsaw Kick in retaliation. Akito survived the barrage of kicks but eventually stayed down after the Diving Double Knee Drop. Victorious, KUDO said it was an interesting match and he wants to have more interesting matches because he will continue to stand in the centre of DDT. He offered a handshake to Akito but it was refused. That was not all KUDO had to put up with at the end of the show.


Two of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts changed hands today. HARASHIMA pinned Tetsuya Endo to gain possession of a contract. He approached KUDO at the end to challenge him to a title match. HARASHIMA said he was not going to take the cowardly route and instead will cash in his contract in Nagoya on 25th May. Yasu Urano won the other contract by pinning a possessed Antonio Honda in the Battle Royal earlier in the show. He also told KUDO he wanted to cash in and he was going to do it right now! The impromptu KO-D Title Match then began with Urano targeting KUDO’s. But despite the well prepared gameplan, KUDO was able to withstand Urano’s offense and fight back. In the end, two Buzzsaw Kicks put away Urano and KUDO was still the KO-D Champion. Urano left the ring pissed off and he tore apart the UraShimKudo shirt he was wearing. Amon Tsurumi praised KUDO for defending the title twice in one night and urged the remaining contract holders not to cash in today. He confirmed KUDO Vs HARASHIMA will take place on 25/5 as long as HARASHIMA still has his contract. HARASHIMA said he was looking forward to winning the title back because he is the strongest. KUDO then said if HARASHIMA is the strongest challenger, then defeating him will make KUDO strongest in the truest sense. KUDO then held a toast with his Shuten-dōji teammates.


The Golden Lovers went into their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title match with a big advantage. It turned out one of their opponents was badly injured. Was it Danshoku Dino? No. Makoto Oishi? Nope, it was Yoshihiko! The most dangerous member of the challenging trio entered the ring with its left arm heavily wrapped in bandages. Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki took advantage immediately by pouncing Yoshihiko. What followed was one of the most violent sights to ever take place in a DDT ring as Omega and Sasaki literally tore Yoshihiko apart! Kota Ibushi had to look away as his partners dismantled Yoshihiko limb from limb.But fear not because Yoshihiko cannot be killed that easily. Just when it looked liked the Golden Lovers had the match won, the arena lights switched off and “TOKYO GO!” played over the speakers. Out came Kazuki Hirata and with him was a revived Yoshihiko wearing a Magnum TOKYO mask! Yoshihiko cleared the ring and was a house of fire until Ibushi got rid of Hirata with a Missile Dropkick. Despite the odds evening out, the Golden Lovers were able to win by delivering the PK Mind Ω to both Oishi and Yoshihiko at the same time.


The big news of the night was Keisuke Ishii and Shigehiro Irie winning the All Asia Tag Team Championship! The two members of Team Dream Futures got their second title shot against Jun Akiyama & Yoshinobu Kanemaru after Ishii spent weeks following Akiyama begging for another match. The persistance paid off as Akiyama finally agreed and the match was booked in DDT. Even with the homeside advantage Ishii & Irie were the underdogs against a team with a combined 39 years of experience. And you know, a whole bunch of All Japan and Pro Wrestling NOAH championships between them. But Ishii & Irie shocked everyone by winning the titles. The champs had things in control for the final moments. Kanemaru dropped Ishii with the Deep Impact and Brainbuster but Ishii would either kick out or be saved by Irie everytime. Akiyama tried to give Irie the Exploder Suplex but Irie did what he could to block him. Then as Kanemaru lifted Ishii up for another Brainbuster, Ishii counters it into a Small Package for the three count! Amon Tsurumi was exceedingly happy to see Ishii & Irie win the titles and congratulated them for holding the same titles Footloose did. Irie said it was a dream for him and Ishii to win the titles. Ishii said it was a frustrating journey but thanks to the fans and to Drift for their support he and Irie were able to do it. They now want to defend the titles over and over in DDT.


It was now or never for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. The reigning and defending 999th champion Sanshiro Takagi wanted to retire the belt so it would never have a 1,000th champion. The belt’s creator Poison Sawada JULIE was able to stop him by claiming the belt’s strap contains an ancient treasure map that appears when roasted with an Inca lighter. Takagi agreed he would put the belt up for one more defence. If he wins, the belt is retired and he gets the lighter. When he entered the ring for the Battle Royal he said he wanted it to end quickly because he wanted to go find the treasure and use it to buy luxury watches. He was cut off by video footage of Poison Sawada passing bottles of S-Cells to several wrestlers. The S-Cells gave the wrestlers snake magic but also put them under Sawada’s control. Sawada’s goal? Get the title back from Takagi by any means necessary! Takagi fought through Sawada’s minions as well as the other wrestlers involved in the Battle Royal and became the last man standing. After the match Takagi told Sawada he was not a fool. There is no ancient treasure and the Inca lighter was something Sawada just bought in a shop for one hundred yen. Takagi wasn’t going to wait any longer to retire the championship and the ceremony begun. Sawada grabbed the belt and yelled “I have to challenge you!” The two struggled until Sawada knocked over Takagi with the belt falling on top of him. All of a sudden Yukinori Matsui slapped the mat three times. The Iron Man Title belt pinned Takagi. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Championship itself became the new champion and will go down in history as the 1,000th Champion!


The belt clearly spent the rest of the day celebrating to the point of exhaustion. It was found unconscious backstage at the end of the show. Jun Akiyama entered the room for a post match interview and sat down with his arm leaning on the belt. Yukinori Matsui suddenly jumped into view and started to count but Akiyama raised his arm at two and told Matsui to leave. When Matsui went away he unknowingly leant onto the belt again. This time Kyohei Wada appeared and he counted to three. Jun Akiyama is the new Iron Man Champion! Wada handed the belt to the new champion but at this point Akiyama was just annoyed by everything going on around him.


The opening match had both good news and bad. The good news was Shunma Katsumata debuted and got a good reaction from the crowd. The bad news was Guanchulo wrestled his final match in Korakuen Hall before he returns home to Chile. He and Katsumata became friends during his stay and he was happy he got to team with him before he leaves.


DDT’s other rookie Shun Miyatake did not have a good day. He wrestled the dark match hoping to impress Amon Tsurumi enough so he could get a proper debut match. Tsurumi didn’t like what he saw and told Miyatake it wasn’t going to happen yet. Miyatake threw a fit and complained that he will forever be a rookie.


Michael Nakazawa will face Minoru Suzuki in Shinjuku FACE on 9th May. Nakazawa actually asked for this match to happen because of what happened four months ago. Nakazawa defeated Sanshiro Takagi at “NEW YEAR NEW YEAR SPECIAL!” back in January thanks to some help from Suzuki. Nakazawa begged Suzuki to coach him but it was rejected and downgraded into Suzuki maybe doing something with Nakazawa down the line. Four months later and Nakazawa now wants to fight Suzuki. Nakazawa is certain he is going to win. He’s just not sure how.

The annual King Of DDT tournament returns this June. The first round will take place in Fukuoka on 14th June, the second round will be in Osaka on 15th June and the semi-finals and final will be in Korakuen Hall on 29th June. This year 16 wrestlers will enter the tournament and the first round pairings will be revealed on 29th May.

7. Hikaru Sato defeated FUMA with the V1 Armlock (18:54).

FUMA put up a good fight in the main event but fell to Hikaru Sato’s strong submission game. Sato taunted Union afterwards saying the company really is a resting place for a “premium toy” like himself. Isami Kodaka confronted him but not until after he shook hands with FUMA and gave him some words of encouragement, saying he saw power in FUMA. He then called out both Sato and Ganbare☆Wrestling for their recent treatment of Union. He cannot lose to them and let down the rest of the roster.

The UWA World Tag Team Titles changed hands with Hiroshi Fukuda & MEN’s Teioh winning the belts from HIROKI & Yasu Urano. Teioh took offence from Urano when he questioned his condition and said he was passed his peak. Teioh, who was recently hospitalised proved Urano wrong by submitting him with the Spinning Toe Hold. Both Fukuda and Teioh celebrated by doing the World Men’s Club pose with their new championships while the fans chanted “USA!”

The Union Vs Ganpuro war continued with both sides getting one win each on tonight’s show. Shuji Ishikawa defeated Yumehito Imanari with little effort, knocking him out with a Knee Strike. Ken Ohka then defeated Cherry in a bout that felt like a grudge match. However Ohka told Cherry after the match that they are alike. Ohka fights hard to make Ganbare☆Wrestling a major company while Cherry fights hard to prove a woman her age can make it as a wrestler. Ohka then challenged Ishikawa to make their final battle on 18th May a death match!

Poison Sawada JULIE revealed his intentions to prevent Sanshiro Takagi from retiring the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. According to Sawada he possesses an ancient lighter from the Inca Empire which can be used to burn the championship belt. When burnt, a treasure map of Arica appears on the belt’s strap. If Takagi gets his way and retires the championship he will have the belt all to himself. Sawada does not want Takagi to discover the map and go after the ancient treasure so he travelled to an old hideout and searched for a certain item to help him. Even though the cave has become desolate over the years and many of his possessions are no longer kept there, he was able to find what he wanted. S Cells! These are potions that contain the power of Snake magic. Sawada then found Antonio Honda and used the S Cells to turn him into Snake Antonio! Now under Sawada’s spell, Antonio has been ordered to defeat Takagi at all costs and become the 1000th champion!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Medical Death Match: Survival Tobita Vs Dr. Kiriko
2. Revenge Of The Tiger!: Fumihito Kihara Vs Kotaro Nasu

Two more names have been entered into the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament. Ganpuro regular Gorikiko enters representing Judo. Then there is the MMA competitor who is just going by the name of Shibata. Probably best not to get your hopes up thinking it is Katsuyori Shibata. I really doubt it’s him.

2. Cherry & Hatsuhinode Kamen Vs Mio Shirai & Tsukasa Fujimoto

The team that wins the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Championship at Korakuen Hall will have little time to prepare for the next challengers. Shuten-dōji have already stepped up for a title shot.

Aomori Industrial Hall

1. Antonio Honda Vs Soma Takao
2. Danshoku Dino Vs Tetsuya Endo
3. Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Guanchulo Vs Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki

Antonio Honda’s placement on the cards is all assuming the snake magic will wear off by the time the shows take place and he will be back to normal by then…

Yamagata Big Wing

1. Kenny Omega Vs Guanchulo
2. HARASHIMA Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga
3. Kota Ibushi & Daisuke Sasaki Vs Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita

… Well, as normal as Honda can be.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Falls Count Anywhere Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki
2. DDT Extreme Title: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Masa Takanashi

Sanshiro Takagi and his group have challenged the Golden Lovers to a Falls Count Anywhere match.

Sapporo Teisan Hall

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega (c) Vs KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi

Shuten-dōji are aiming to take away all of the Golden Lovers’ championships. If everything goes his way, KUDO could find himself holding all three KO-D Championships at the same time. Now that would be a drink well earned.

Golden Union Plus Ganbare & Tokyo Joshi Updates

April 21, 2014


1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Erin
2. KANNA Vs Ririko Kendo
3. Nonoko & Yuka Sakazaki Vs Chikage Kiba & Shoko Nakajima

Looks like Tokyo Women’s Wrestling is going to build up to Nonoko Vs Chikage Kiba for their next big singles match.

Yokohama Radiant Hall

5. Isami Kodaka Vs Mitomi Masayuki
6. FUMA Vs Hikaru Sato
7. UWA World Tag Team Titles: HIROKI & Yasu Urano (c) Vs Hiroki Fukuda & MEN’s Teioh

The Idea Pocket Divas for this month are Yu Namiki & Tsubasa Amami. The winning team in the match get a double date with the Divas. Ryu Gouma is a little uncomfortable with the stipulation, believing it is a human right violation.

FUMA is looking forward to fighting Hikaru Sato. He is annoyed with Sato treating Union as a rest stop and is looking forward to beating him.

The Union Vs Ganpuro war continues with two key matches happening on this show. Cherry destroyed Ganpuro’s Gorikiko in a violent Judo Jacket Match that had to be held away from the public for safety reasons. She is pissed and wants to remind everyone that Union is more than just Shuji Ishikawa and Naomi Susan. So she steps in to challenge Ken Ohka to a match that nobody should miss. Meanwhile Shuji Ishikawa defends Union against Ohka’s second in command, Yumehito Imanari.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Medical Death Match: Survival Tobita Vs Dr. Kiriko
2. Revenge Of The Tiger!: Fumihito Kihara Vs Kotaro Nasu

There are currently four entries in the Ganbare☆Martial Arts Open Tournament: Ken Ohka (Wrestling), Glasses (Tae Kwon Do), Shota (American Wrestling) and Aki Shizuku (Amateur Wrestling). I think Glasses is Ladybeard’s friend who accompanied him when he fought as Richard Burn. Aki Shizuku is a joshi wrestler from REINA. She has amateur experience and was a runner up in the All Japan Student Championships.

Oro City Hall
291 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. MIKAMI defeated Michael Nakazawa with the Ultimate Venom Stinger (8:37).
2. 3 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Danshoku Dino and Antonio Honda when Endo pinned Honda with a Moonsault (7:08).
*Tetsuya Endo wins one of Antonio Honda’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts.
3. Kiss His Ass Hole Match: Sanshiro Takagi defeated Hiroshi Fukuda when Takagi made Fukuda Kiss Danshoku Dino’s Ass Hole (7:35).
4. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano defeated Yuto Aijima & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when HARASHIMA pinned Matsunaga with the Somato (11:34).
5. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Akito & Makoto Oishi when KUDO pinned Oishi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (10:20).
6. Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao when Ibushi pinned Takao with the Sit Down Last Ride (16:30).

Today’s show was in Kota Ibushi’s home town of Kagoshima. He said when DDT returns he wants to have a title defence there.

KUDO completes a clean sweep of the weekend tour, getting the pinfall in all three of his matches. With DDT’s next show being the monthly Korakuen Hall event, the KO-D Openweight Champion is now ready for whatever Akito throws at him.

Danshoku Dino was knocked out during the 3 Way Match and his unconscious body was left lying down prone on the top turnbuckle. Sanshiro Takagi and Hiroshi Fukuda were unable to remove Dino before their match could begin so Takagi challenged Fukuda to an impromptu Kiss His Ass Hole Match. The winner would be whoever forced his opponent to kiss Dino’s ass. Fukuda was able to force Takagi to pucker up but a ref bump meant that no one was there to end the match. Takagi recovered, gave Fukuda the Sit Down Himawari Bomb and planted him nose first into Dino’s rear end to win, this time with the ref in full view.

For the entire weekend, Amon Tsurumi wanted Shigehiro Irie to cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract and challenge KUDO to a sudden KO-D Title match. Tsurumi’s reasoning was because at this time last year when Irie was champion,  Daisuke Sasaki constantly threatened to cash in his contract. Amon wanted Irie to do the same so this time he would be the bully instead of the bullied. Irie refused each night and on this show explained it is disgusting for somebody to cash in on an unexpecting opponent so he won’t be doing it that way.
