Unfortunately Kota Ibushi has not recovered from his concussion and has to pull out of more shows. Even worse, Ibushi will no longer be competing in this year’s G1 Climax. The planned 10th Anniversary Match for Sunday has been postponed and several matches on the card have been changed.

GENTARO is a last minute addition to the card, returning to DDT for the first time since August 2012.

My favourite time of the year on the DDT calender is Beer Garden week. This is where DDT’s roster are at their most creative because they get to make the matches. So far we have ghost stories, a 5 Way Ladder match, some boxing, the return of Ultimate Superstars Action and a Smile Squash Triple Threat to look forward to. Unfortunately there is no more Lariat Pro Wrestling but in it’s place we get Knee Pro Wrestling. So expect the Boma Ye and Busaiku Knee Kick to be used a lot. There are two shows that have yet to have any matches booked for it. They are the first and final days of the series.
