1. Suguru Miyatake Vs Kouki Iwasaki
Suguru Miyatake is from Nakano and has already become one of the more infamous rookies in DDT history. Recruited in 2013, Miyatake participated in exhibition matches throughout 2014 and kept expecting his official debut to be announced. It wouldn’t happen. Miyatake was not considered ready and his lackluster performances would keep him at trainee level for a long time. DDT General Manager Amon Tsurumi even said he would never debut in 100 years! Well, that debut finally happens here. Kouki Iwasaki is from Sapporo and has trained under Kenichi Yamamoto.
2. Shunma Katsumata Vs Dai Suzuki
Shunma Katsumata is from Chiba and was trained by Yasu Urano. He was originally part of a SMASH training camp but never got to debut before the company closed down. He is one of the first wrestlers in the DNA class to officially debut for DDT when he had his first match in April of this year. I couldn’t find much information for Dai Suzuki.
3. Kazusada Higuchi Vs Kouta Umeda
Kazusada Higuchi is a former sumo wrestler from Hokkaido. He participated in sumo for 7 years and has a record of 140 wins and 128 losses until retiring in January this year. Kouta Umeda is a kickboxer from Kumamoto.
