7. Beer Garden Specialty! 6-Man Lottery Tag Match: KUDO, Kenny Omega & Shigehiro Irie defeated Danshoku Dino, Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA when Omega pinned Dino with the One-Winged Angel (15:59).
A lottery was held to determine the two teams in the main event. We wound up getting KUDO, Kenny Omega & Shigehiro Irie Vs Danshoku Dino, Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA. The match ventured back and forth between serious and nonsense. HARASHIMA and Omega squared off in a 2/3rd preview of the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2014” main event. Meanwhile Irie and Dino wrestled each other while wearing stockings over their heads. The finish came when Dino Hip Thrusted Omega into the corner and was preparing to deliver the Danshoku Driver. Omega suddenly spat beer in Dino’s face and knocked him down with the Hadouken. Irie did a Brainbuster, KUDO delivered the Diving Double Knee Drop and Omega finished it with the One-Winged Angel to pin Dino.
Shuten-dōji got a win over Team Drift in their final skirmish before their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title shot at Sumo Hall. Soma Takao taunted Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi by spitting alcohol at them throughout the match. Shuten-dōji got their revenge when Takao had Takanashi in position for the Gin And Tonic. Sakaguchi punched Takao in the gut and Takanashi was able to counter the finisher into the Takatonic for the win.
The Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match forced wrestlers to either dance or drink depending on what song was being played. When “Kuroku Nuritsubuse” by Eikichi Yazawa was used, everyone had to dance. When “Nippon Zenkoku Sakenomi Ondo” was used, everyone had to find beer and drink it.
Yasu Urano told the audience that this year’s Beer Garden Week was a great success. He called DDT a great organisation with jam-packed dreams. Urano then went on to beat MIKAMI in a match. MIKAMI afterwards noted that he lost again but will not give up wrestling. He said his dream was to be in DDT when they first ran Sumo Hall. When that was achieved he now had one goal left and that was to keep wrestling no matter what age he is. MIKAMI promised to show a new side of himself at Sumo Hall on 17/8.
Jun Kasai also wore stockings over his head during his match with DJ Nira. After the match Nira announced the name of his one man unit for the DDT Dramatic General Election. His unit is called the Yasu Urano Federation. Since Yasu Urano is already part of a team, Tsurumi Amon corrected it to the Nira Federation. Nira thinks it is a nice idea for him to be the only member of his team.
Tomomitsu Matsunaga is beginning to get into his new title of DDT Sumo Yokozuna. He was using more shoulder blocks and pushing around opponents in his match. He also invited Gota Ihashi to join himself and Michael Nakazawa for the General Election, pointing out that the Golden Storm Riders left him out of their group for the contest. Daisuke Sasaki denied the accusation and even admitted he now likes Ihashi a little bit. Ihashi said he liked being in the Golden Storm Riders but then gave Sasaki a German Suplex. He wants to be the best but felt he was being buried when he was with the Storm Riders. He will now get to show his true ability with Matsunaga & Nakazawa! Their new unit is called Leaders Thinking and they are the “Darkness Heroes who do not get the spotlight everyday!”
A 4 man tournament was announced to determine the next KO-D Openweight Title challenger. Keisuke Ishii, Akito, Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo will take part. The wrestlers were chosen because they are all in their 20s or younger. The semi finals take place in Kasukabe on 24th August and the final is in Shinjuku on 31st August. The winner gets his title shot in Osaka on 13th September.
The KO-D Tag Team Titles will next be defended on the 24/8 Kasukabe show.
DDT will be releasing their own Kewpie dolls of Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA and Danshoku Dino.
Next stop Sumo Hall!
