*V1 for Shuten-dōji.
KUDO was able to prevent losing another championship to Smile Squash in the main event of today’s show. Shuten-dōji successfully defended the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles but were told not to have their celebratory drinks because of an alcohol ban in the building. All three members of Shuten-dōji ignored the ban and drank their cans.
The Champion Carnival 2014 winner Takao Omori teamed with Antonio Honda on today’s show. The pre-match video had Honda ask how could he live and spend every day in despair? What could he do? Omori came in and said they will go on the ultimate journey to be wild! After the match, Konosuke Takeshita challenged Omori to a singles bout. Omori offered a handshake but Takeshita rejected it.
Today’s Infomercial Match was sponsored by the Research Institute. The director of the Institute appeared dressed as Akihiro Miwa and announced the wrestlers competing in the mini Royal Rumble had to be dressed like him. Everyone entered the ring to the song “Hymn Of Love” and Kazuki Hirata appeared at the end of the match to dance to the song.
There are some concerns in DDT over the recent changes happening to All Japan. Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie are the current All Asia Tag Team Champions but the status of those titles are currently unknown. Ishii wants the belts to be defended in DDT and thinks they should still be active. His reasoning is the championship is not created by All Japan so it shouldn’t be effected by the company’s problems. He and Irie decided they will defend the belts on 22nd June even though they do not yet have permission to do so.
