The Idol Lumberjack Deathmatch was the most notable event on today’s show. Makoto Oishi put his DDT Extreme Title on the line and had the idol group Sizukaze & Kizuna by his side. Danshoku Dino countered by bringing in Stardom wrestler Yoshiko to be his lumberjack. While Oishi’s idols attacked Dino with plastic hammers whenever he was knocked out of the ring, Yoshiko got more involved by dropping Sentons onto Oishi whenever he was laid out on the floor. Both Yoshiko and the idols also attacked the wrestlers inside the ring when the referee was wiped out by Dino’s Lip Lock. After the ref recovered Oishi took control until Yoshiko knocked him off the top turnbuckle with a thrown chair. Oishi grabbed the mic and yelled at Yoshiko for being an ugly female wrestler. The girls from Sizukaze & Kizuna got mad at Oishi for his behaviour and turned on him. All of the lumberjacks beat up Oishi and pretty much handed Dino the win, making him a 7 time DDT Extreme Champion. After the match Oishi begged Yoshiko and the idols for forgiveness. They did and everybody then danced.
Team Dream Futures will be keeping a close eye on tomorrow’s KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title match. Soma Takao noted that DDT now has many different units on their roster but Drift is the team that wants the 6-Man Title the most.
The Infomercial Match promoted DDT’s Best Stretch parlour and started off as Sanshiro Takagi & Super Sasadango Machine Vs Kazuki Hirata & Tetsuya Endo. The match consisted of everyone giving each other stretching exercises instead of wrestling moves and at some point changed into Takagi & Hirata Vs Machine & Endo. Machine pinned Hirata with the Lehman Shock and afterwards credited the stretching exercises for improving his finishing move by 35%.
Shun Miyatake (Trainee) appeared at the beginning of the show to give an update of his status since it has been a while since he had a match. Miyatake said he broke his leg six months ago and last month had surgery to remove the plate and bolts from his foot so he needed time off to rest. Amon Tsurumi didn’t believe him. Miyatake then said he was able to train during his absence but wound up injuring his hip from lifting 180kg weights. He also fractured his fourth lumbar vertebrae. Tsurumi had enough of Miytake’s lies and said he will never debut now because his injuries would take hundreds of years to heal! Miyatake said he heals fast and will be back around October or November.
