The first round of this year’s King Of DDT threw up some interesting results and match-ups. Antonio Honda submitted Yasu Urano and will face Shigehiro Irie in Round 2. Irie is focused on winning the tournament so he will get a Sumo Hall rematch with HARASHIMA one year after HARASHIMA won the KO-D Title from him. Tomomitsu Matsunaga earned a major upset victory over Kenny Omega. Despite gaining a lot of confidence from the win, Matsunaga’s next opponent will have the advantage. KUDO wasted no time in beating MIKAMI and will be fresh as a daisy tomorrow. Kota Ibushi and Masa Takanashi both won their matches and now their paths will meet. Ibushi doesn’t know what tactics Takanashi will have up his sleeve for their match. Isami Kodaka beat Yukio Sakaguchi and stayed at ringside to watch the main event where the winner would be his next opponent. That man turned out to be Konosuke Takeshita. The young phenom defeated Daisuke Sasaki in the longest match of the night. Afterwards Takeshita said he thinks he proved he can win the tournament.
