The main event of today’s show was a DDT Vs Union crossover battle. HARASHIMA and Isami Kodaka got to test each other out before the big KO-D Openweight Title match at the end of the month. However it was FUMA and Yasu Urano who were involved with the finish. FUMA pinned Urano while Kodaka wiped out HARASHIMA with a Suicide Dive outside the ring. Kodaka complimented FUMA with a “Well done!” after the match. Kodaka then said he and FUMA are a much better team than Smile Squash because they are the UWA World Tag Team Champions. He thanked the fans for the 689 votes he got in the DDT Dramatic General Election that granted him his title shot.
KUDO & Masa Takanashi earned a KO-D Tag Team Title shot when they beat Kota Ibushi & Daisuke Sasaki. The title match will be in Sapporo on 12th October. The champions Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo watched the match from a corner of the venue and approached their next challengers. Takeshita said as the future of DDT he and Endo will not lose to Shuten-dōji. Instead they will use Shuten-dōji as a stepping stone. Endo said he will have raise a toast with protein when they win. Takanashi warned that they were making a big mistake. KUDO said he has won the KO-D Openweight and KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles as part of Shuten-dōji. He now cherishes the chance to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles.
Kazuki Hirata failed to appear with his teammates for the semi-main event. It was explained that Hirata is suffering from Magnum Syndrome and one of the side effects is being unable to enter ringside without his theme music. Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata took advantage and overwhelmed the remaining T2Hide wrestlers until “Tokyo GO!” was finally played. Hirata came to the rescue, fueled by his song. That was the deciding factor and T2Hide came out on top.
Soma Takao gained a lot of momentum for his upcoming DDT Extreme Title match against Akito. Takao pinned the champion in a tag team match and afterwards looked like he was going to steal his belt. Instead Takao placed it on Akito’s defeated body.
Shigehiro Irie did quick work to win the 3 Way Match. Very quick work actually. He submitted DJ Nira with a Chinlock before Yukio Sakaguchi could even enter the ring. Amon Tsurumi said felt the result was not a good way to commemorate Sakaguchi becoming fully affiliated with DDT so he ordered the match to restart. Irie then submitted Nira again even faster than the first time. The match restarted again and both Irie and Nira wrestled away from ringside with Sakaguchi chasing after them. They eventually returned on a pallet truck that was wheeled down to the ring. Nira hit Sakaguchi with the Rocket Punch and taunted him until Irie snuck up and submitted Nira one more time.
For their last match as a unit, Pigging promised to wrestle fair and square in the opening match. They then ambushed Happy Motel before the bell rang. The plan didn’t work and Michael Nakazawa was pinned by Konosuke Takeshita. After the match Gota Ihashi told Amon Tsurumi that they lost because the other team had great luck so Pigging will not disband. Tsurumi was against the idea but asked if Nakazawa and Tomomitsu Matsunaga really wanted the unit to continue. Matsunaga laughed and said he it was a good unit apart from everybody in it. They all agreed to disband Pigging.
The Smile Squash produced Korakuen Hall show on 12th November will be called “I WANT TO SEE THE SMILES OF EVERYONE”. One of the matches planned is involves Tomomitsu Matsunaga taking up his DDT Sumo King role again.
