The results of this year’s DDT Dramatic General Election was announced to a full Shinjuku FACE crowd of 520 fans. Samurai! TV cameras followed the briefcase as it made its journey towards Shinjuku. Smile Squash won the Unit Election, narrowly beating Shuten-dōji by 9 votes. Team Drift weren’t that far behind either. Nira Federation, the one man unit led by DJ Nira somehow got more votes than Nira did in the singles portion of the election.

Kota Ibushi wins the DDT Election for the second time and he is now guaranteed a KO-D Title shot at Saitama Super Arena next year. Ibushi felt happy that the fans are not sick of seeing him because of his dual contract with DDT and New Japan. When asked what he will do with the cash prize, Ibushi simply said “Yamanote Line Wrestling”. He wants to travel through an entire loop of the Yamanote Line and wrestle somebody at every stop. Sanshiro Takagi said afterwards he’ll talk to Japan Railway about it.

Isami Kodaka finished in 2nd place, losing out to Ibushi by just 4 votes! It was the closest result ever for the contest and a much needed one since most of them have been won by landslides. Despite that, Kodaka still gets a KO-D Title shot later this month and some cash as a reward. HARASHIMA finished 3rd and said he’s looking forward to the Kodaka match. Kodaka said the same but promises he will crush HARASHIMA.

Yukio Sakaguchi now wants to finish his career wrestling for DDT so he will now be affiliated with the company.
