1. DDT Extreme Title: Akito (c) Vs Soma Takao

I doubt Akito will need to confess his love for someone in order to win this match.

The card was decided by a lottery that took place after the last show. By some coincidence the main event is a rematch of the very first Tokyo Joshi main event.

1. Special Single Match: GENTARO defeated Tiger Bed Scene with the Sharpshooter (12:40).
2. Power Of Dreams Vs Union Part 1: Tomoya Kawamura defeated Yumehito Imanari with a Small Package (10:31).
3. Power Of Dreams Vs Union Part 2: Chikara Vs Mitomi Masayuki ended in a No Contest (7:37).

Even though Ken Ohka and Osamu Namiguchi won their match, Namiguchi was in no mood to play friendship. He rejected a handshake from Ohka and said he only teamed with him because they had common enemies. Now that was out of the way he next wants a singles match with Ohka. The challenge was accepted and will take place on 17th October.

The feud between Power Of Dreams and Union showed no signs of cooling off. Yumehito Imanari lost to Tomoya Kawamura and then both got involved in the Chikara Vs Mitomo Masayuki match. A brawl between the four led to a no contest. Ohka announced a No DQ Tag Team match for the 17th October show.

Three title changes were among the highlights from today’s show, the final day fans could vote in the DDT Dramatic General Election. In the main event Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo scored a massive upset victory over the Golden Lovers to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. For weeks the two young wrestlers were looked down upon by Kenny Omega and even Kota Ibushi a little bit. With Antonio Honda cheering them on from their corner, Takeshita was able to hit the Touchdown on Omega followed by the Sky Twister Press from Endo for a nearfall. Endo went outside to block Ibushi while Takeshita used a Cross Arm German Suplex to finally pin Omega. After the match Kenny admitted defeat and said he leaves the future of DDT to the new champions. Takeshita & Endo thanked the fans for their support and said they will continue to work up to the top.

The DDT Extreme Title changed hands in the semi-main event. Akito beat Danshoku Dino in a Nobody Knows Rules match. The rules were convoluted to say the least. One count pinfalls could end the match, speaking English was banned, complaining about feeling pain was banned, rope breaks were banned, trainees acted as lumberjacks outside the ring and 3 count pinfalls were awarded for both kissing and submitting opponents. Daisuke Kiso needed to have the rules written down just to figure out what was going on. Akito hit the Kinniku Buster on Dino and then he kissed him. Akito then said it was a dream come true for him to face Danshoku Dino in a title match at Korakuen Hall. He was glad to have met him. Kiso recognised that as a confession of love and awarded Akito the match and the Extreme Title!

Finishing off the trio of title changes, the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Championship now belongs to T2Hide! The match was all about Kazuki Hirata and his Magnum HIRATA antics. He had Shun Miyatake (Trainee) and Hiroshi Fukuda join him dressed as women for his dancing entrance. Shigehiro Irie came close to pinning Hirata several times but his Beast Bomber was countered into a Cradle for the upset. Most surprised of all was Hirata himself. He said he works hard and takes wrestling seriously. Then he started dancing again.

DDT announced a new project dedicated to their new trainees. DDT New Attitude will produce its first show in Kitizawa on 28th November. Shunma Katsumata, Shun Miyatake (Trainee) and Union rookie Tomoya Kawamura join 4 new trainees for the event. In Miyatake’s case it will be recognised as his official debut match. The DNA trainees so far have only been identified as Nakatsu, Umeda, Iwasaki and Higuchi. Nakatsu is from Kyoto and has participated in “underground mixed martial arts”. Umeda is a kickboxer from Kumamoto. Iwasaki is from Sapporo and has trained under Kenichi Yamamoto. Higuchi is a sumo wrestler from Hokkaido.

DJ Nira & Super Sasadango Machine came up with the perfect plan to defeat HARASHIMA. They stole his contact lenses! Nira even swallowed them to make sure HARASHIMA will never get them back. With blurred vision, HARASHIMA was ineffective for a lot of the match. Sasadango stripped Yasu Urano of his shirt and bandana and put them on himself to trick HARASHIMA into thinking he was Urano. HARASHIMA then hit the real Urano with the Somato. Sasadango gave Urano several Lehman Shocks but HARASHIMA came to the rescue by wearing Amon Tsurumi’s glasses. He hit Sasadango with the Somato and Urano got the pin.

An update was given for DDT’s “Wrestling Cannonball” movie that will soon be in production. If I have the translation right the movie will follow three different teams driving to different locations and having matches against local wrestlers. Team A consists of Minoru Suzuki, Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai with Muscle Sakai as their cameraman. Team B is KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi. Team C is Danshoku Dino, HARASHIMA & Kota Ibushi with Michael Nakazawa accompanying them.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo & Konosuke Takeshita

A lot of pressure is on Tetsuya Endo & Konosuke Takeshita for the main event. Kenny Omega was able to beat them handily last week and that was with Daisuke Sasaki instead of Kota Ibushi. Omega has been relentless with his insults, calling Endo a D-Rank virgin and Takeshita a G-Rank brat. He thinks they have no chance of winning. Ibushi feels the same because a week is not enough time to prepare for the Golden Lovers. He thinks the challengers have less than 1% chance of winning and even then they need to be lucky. Takeshita believes it is not impossible to beat the Golden Lovers and this match will be his and Endo’s rebirth.

“NEW YEAR’S EVE WRESTLING 2014”, 31/12/2014
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Unification! Three Company Powerhouse Tournament:

TAKA Michinoku & X

The three companies return to Korakuen Hall on New Year’s Eve for the annual big bash. This year’s show is built around a one night tag team tournament. 16 teams compete with special rules in effect to ensure the matches are lightning quick. Every match in the first two rounds will have a 10 minute time limit. If time runs out the match goes to sudden death and will end with a one count pinfall. The semi final has the same rules but with a 15 minute time limit. The final has no time limit. There will be a playoff tree for the first two rounds but who faces who in the semi finals will be determined by a lottery.

The rules are similar to the singles tournament held last year. Sanshiro Takagi joked that next year they could do a trios tournament and continue adding an extra team member every year. TAKA Michinoku has not decided on a tag team partner yet.

Tokorozawa Civic Gymnasium Sub-Arena
744 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Meat Tavern Scramble Match: MIKAMI, Masa Takanashi & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when MIKAMI pinned Hirata with a School Boy (7:18).
2. HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Akito defeated Gota Ihashi, Michael Nakazawa & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when HARASHIMA pinned Ihashi with the Somato (11:58).
3. Antonio Honda, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo defeated Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata when Honda pinned Katsumata with the Diving Fist Drop (14:02).
4. Kenny Omega defeated Hiroshi Fukuda with the Croyt’s Wrath (7:55).
5. Kota Ibushi defeated Soma Takao with the Sit Down Last Ride (10:55).
6. Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi when Ishii pinned Sakaguchi with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (16:42).

If you’re Keisuke Ishii you don’t have to wait for any milestones to celebrate the anniversary of your debut match. Well, there was another reason. Ishii last booked his own show two and a half years ago in the same building and he wanted to show how strong he has become since then. In the main event Ishii teamed with his Drift partner Shigehiro Irie and scored a big victory over KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi. Ishii himself got the pin on Sakaguchi.

Soma Takao told Kota Ibushi he wanted another singles match after Ibushi beat him.

Hiroshi Fukuda pointed out that Kenny Omega used to wrestle in All Japan, the company he will soon be working for. So he wanted the two of them to show everyone a major battle worthy of the promotion. Fukuda later tried to distract Omega by singing Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”. Omega made him shut up with the STOP! Enzuigiri and then pinned him with the Croyt’s Wrath.

Due to some sort of contest that took place at the beginning of the show, Kazuki Hirata and MIKAMI both got to make rules for the Meat Tavern Scramble match. Hirata wanted music to play during the match so he could dance to it. MIKAMI wanted to turn the match into a 3 Vs 2 Handicap bout with him, Masa Takanashi & Daisuke Sasaki against Hirata & Sanshiro Takagi. MIKAMI was able to counter Hirata’s Viagra Driver into a School Boy for the win.
