With three weeks to go until DDT takes over the Community section of Super Saitama Arena, the company held a big preview show over at Korakuen Hall. Many of the matches today gives us an idea of what to expect in Saitama next month.

ibushi-sekimoto-okabayashi

In the main even the KO-D Openweight Champion and KO-D Tag Team Champions banded together to face their challengers in a 6-Man Tag. HARASHIMA has been getting the better of Kota Ibushi in their recent tag matches but Ibushi is ever so slightly winding up the champion with mind games. Meanwhile Happy Motels got the opportunity to measure up against the Strong BJ team of Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi before their big title match. The challengers rallied together and defeated the champions but it wasn’t easy. HARASHIMA hit the Somato to Ibushi on the apron. But a Swan Dive into the ring was caught by Okabayashi and ended with HARASHIMA being driven into the mat with a Spinebuster. Konosuke Takeshita gave Sekimoto the Blue Thunder and left it up to Tetsuya Endo to finish him. However Sekimoto recovered and hit Endo with a big Lariat for a nearfall. He then gave Endo the Deadlift German Suplex and this time he got the pin.

rock-paper-scissors

Ibushi continued the mind games after the match when he offered a handshake to HARASHIMA. The champion didn’t want to be tricked again so he stuck his hand out in the shape of scissors. However as he did that Ibushi immediately changed his hand into rock. HARASHIMA changed his hand to paper but Ibushi switched to scissors. The two continued playing Rock Paper Scissors with Ibushi winning every hand and HARASHIMA getting noticeably more irritated. Amon Tsurumi stepped in and said he is looking forward to seeing great matches at “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015”.

rope-assisted-triangle-scorpion

Akito faced Makoto Oishi in a No Rope Break Match with the DDT Extreme Title on the line. With no rope breaks in effect tightly locked submissions were now more dangerous. Both wrestlers had to physically drag themselves out of the ring to have any chance of escaping some of the holds applied during the match. Akito used the ropes to his advantage when he applied the Triangle Scorpion and held onto the ropes to apply even more pressure. Oishi tried his best to escape but soon had to give up. Next up for Akito is Shiori Asahi… I mean X.

sasadango-powerpoint

Super Sasadango Machine has been studying his chances of beating Kazushi Sakuraba next month. Using a Powerpoint presentation he explained that he had 0% chance of winning. He also remembered that he has now been wrestling for over 10 years and reaching such a milestone should power him up. A victory over Sanshiro Takagi gave him a confidence boost and Sasadango now thinks he has a 25% chance of beating Sakuraba.

hirata-kojika-dance

Once again Kazuki Hirata’s Magnum gear was stolen by Antonio Honda. Hirata got brand new GO! glasses to wear but Honda got his hands on them first. Whoever wears the glasses becomes compelled to dance to the Magnum TOKYO theme song. So obviously everybody in the match got to wear the glasses at some point, Great Kojika included. Kojika used the power of the music to clear house and pin Hirata with a Choke Slam.

road-to-super-tlc

A single table, ladder and chair were involved in the Super TLC preview bout. MIKAMI made good use of the ladder while Daisuke Sasaki put Shigehiro Irie through the table. Back in the ring Shuji Ishikawa pinned Suguru Miyatake with the Splash Mountain. Things are only going to get crazier from there in Saitama.

sato-submission

Saki Akai’s chances of regaining the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title are not looking good. She was the first person eliminated in today’s Battle Royal after a double Clothesline from Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Bernard Ackah. Matsunaga then pinned Ackah afterwards and after that Ackah knocked him out. Near the end Shunma Katsumata was the last one in the ring but he was soon joined by a big surprise. It was the return of Hikaru Sato! Coming down to the UWF Theme, Sato entered the ring carrying the Shield Of Victory Award he won at DEEP’s Saitama Super Arena show on New Year’s Eve. He kicked Katsumata down and tapped him out with a Half Crab all while still posing with the award. Sato took the mic and said he is unbeaten at MMA in Super Saitama Arena and he is now free to go after the Iron Man Title on 15th February.

sakaguchi-matsuno-nira

Despite not having the Brahman Brothers by his side, Gorgeous Matsuno still had access to the black India Ink to use against Shuten-dōji. Gota Ihashi used the ink to blind Yukio Sakaguchi but Masa Takanashi and KUDO were still there. KUDO hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on Ihashi for the win.

fukuda-amon-darkmatch

Hiroshi Fukuda and Hoshitango had an unscheduled dark match during Amon Tsurumi’s opening show announcements. Tsurumi just stood there and spoke while the two men wrestled around him. When they were down Fukuda demanded he should be in the King Of Dark Title match and he would forfeit his spot in the Iron Man Title Rumble to do it. Tsurumi decided that the title match will now be Gota Ihashi & DJ Nira Vs Hiroshi Fukuda & Hoshitango. Fukuda was thrilled with the news until he found out the King Of Dark Title is actually a “Misfortune Championship”. Fukuda asked why would Tsurumi create such a championship? Tsurumi told him to go home.

Zeus will be in the 15/2 Iron Man Title Rumble.

The matches for DNA 3 on 5th February are Shunma Katsumata Vs Kota Umeda, Kouki Iwasaki Vs Kotaro Nasu, Kazusada Higuchi Vs Ryota Nakatsu, Jiro Kuroshio & Tomoya Kawamura Vs Dai Suzuki & Kikutaro and in the main event Suguru Miyatake Vs Yuko Miyamoto.

4. “Mr. Perfect” Hiroshi Fukuda Comeback & Kazushi‘s GYM Bodybuilding Circle Reunion Memorial Match: Hiroshi Fukuda & MEN’S Teioh Vs Kazushi Miyamoto & Seiya Morohashi ended in a No Contest (12:04).
5. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title: Mio Shirai (c) defeated Aoi Ishibashi with the Egukeri (10:12).
*V2 for Mio Shirai.
6. UWA World Tag Team Titles: Isami Kodaka & FUMA (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata ended in a No Contest when MEN’S Teioh & Kazushi Miyamoto interfered (18:15).
*V3 for Isami Kodaka & FUMA.
6a. UWA World Tag Team Titles: Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata defeated Isami Kodaka & FUMA (c) when Ishikawa pinned FUMA with the Splash Mountain (5:54).
*Isami Kodaka & FUMA fail in V4. Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata become the 20th UWA World Tag Team Champions!

All the attention in Union is now on MEN’S Teioh and Kazushi Miyamoto. The two men both betrayed their tag team partners and joined forces. Teioh was teaming with Hiroshi Fukuda in what was Fukuda’s return to Union after injury. Miyamoto was teaming with Seiya Morohashi, a partnership formed by their love of gym workouts. However they weren’t on the same page in the match and at one point collided with a double Clothesline that missed its intended target. Fukuda was about to give Morohashi the Perfect Plex when all of a sudden Teioh whacked him with a chair! The rest of the Union roster came to the rescue and chased Teioh away.

But Teioh made his presence felt again in the main event, this time with Miyamoto with him. The UWA World Tag Team Titles were on the line, Isami Kodaka & FUMA versus Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata. In the dying moments of the match Teioh & Miyamoto ran in with steel chairs and attacked everyone. The match was called a No Contest (but is still officially a successful title defence) and Teioh gave some parting words before leaving.

The UWA Tag Title match was restarted and everyone went full throttle. Ishikawa caught FUMA’s kicks and hit him with Headbutt after Headbutt. One Splash Mountain later and we have new champions! Ishikawa said he was going to eat more and wants everybody to become even stronger.

Madoka’s infatuation with AV idol Harumi Tachibana went up to another level today. He proposed to her! Harumi immediately turned him down. Madoka was in denial and said he would give her time to think about it while he wrestled Daichi Kazato. Afterwards Harumi told him he was being unreasonable but Madoka said he will not give up!

Ryu Gouma is suffering from a vomiting bug and was pulled from the show. Emi Sakura took his place in Match #2.

Union will bring back the Get The Glory! tournament next month. The first tournament was held in October 2013 and was won by Shuji Ishikawa. This year the tournament will be take place in two shows on 22nd February. This time twelve wrestlers will enter.

6. UWA World Tag Team Titles: Isami Kodaka & FUMA (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata

Shuji Ishikawa has chosen U-File Camp fighter Masato Shibata as his partner for the UWA World Tag Team Title match. Ishikawa said there are now less big guys in wrestling than there used to be and what’s better in pro wrestling than big guys colliding into each other? So he has picked someone similar in size to himself to be his teammate.

Mio Shirai admitted she doesn’t know a lot about her next challenger Aoi Ishibashi. However, overcoming the odds is what a champion does so Shirai is willing to take the risk of not studying Ishibashi before their match.

7. DDT Extreme Title – No Rope Escape Match: Akito (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

Akito’s reign of technical wrestling over the DDT Extreme Title now brings him into a match where rope escapes are not in effect. He and Makoto Oishi will have to rely on other means to avoid submission holds. Or maybe they both have a few moves up their sleeve that would benefit from rope usage.

8. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi
9. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Kota Ibushi

Super Sasadango Machine’s opponent for Saitama Super Arena (the Community Arena, not the giant stadium) is none other than Kazushi Sakuraba! Sasadango’s only knew beforehand that he was getting a “super-heavyweight” opponent. Both men are said to be enthusiastic about the match.

Details have emerged for DDT’s newest… championship? Accomplishment? Reward? Whatever it is, the King Of Dark Title is only defended in dark matches and the first champion will either be Gota Ihashi or DJ Nira. However, the first champion will be whoever loses the match. For you see, the King of Dark is forced to wrestle only in dark matches until they win. Victories by the champion is what causes title changes so I assume defeats count as title defences. It is the championship nobody wants unless you want to wrestle early!

Today’s show was a big celebration for Ganbare☆Wrestling. Free food and drink was on offer for the fans in attendance. The matches were built around Awards that were handed out to different members of the roster.

The main event was a tag team match featuring Ken Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi (Best Bout Award) against Yumehito Imanari (Best Tag Award for Power Of Dreams) & Tiger Bed Scene (Newcomer Award) to determine the MVP of Ganpuro. Ohka pinned Tiger with the Spear Of Flame to be crowned MVP. Shota interrupted the end of show speech and threatend Ganpuro.

The 3 Way Match contained three award winners. J-Soul Pandita III IV (Fighting Spirit Award) took on Dr. Kiriko (Distinguished Service Medal) and Hong Kong International Police Man (Skills Laureate). Those paying attention realise that it should be impossible for Dr. Kiriko and Police Man to be in the same room at the same time. Police Man demanded that Kiriko prove he is the genuine doctor. Kiriko removed his costume to reveal he was actually Grampus Mask No. 4 in disguise! The two of them battled while Pandita fell asleep. Police Man and Grampus knocked each other out with Flying Kicks and a tired Pandita rolled itself onto both of them to get the victory.

Angela Ami and Haruka Kato fought over who deserved the Joshi Award. Ami won the match and said she will prepare a diet and develop a hybrid body for her match with Kana next month.

The final award to be given out was the Perfect Attendance Award. This was given to the winner of an impromptu Battle Royal at the end of the show. Eliminations applied for pinfalls, submissions and throwing someone out of the room through one of the window frames. The match had no winner as the final two contestants Haruka Kato and Grampus Mask No. 4 both fell through the frame. The only person left in the fighting area was referee Okada Sukinzu, so he was given the award.

Sanshiro Takagi was taken off the show due to a high fever, causing a minor reshuffle of the card.

With one month to go until “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015”, the skirmishes between HARASHIMA and Kota Ibushi continue. HARASHIMA again got one up on his rival, scoring another tag team victory in the main event. HARASHIMA told Ibushi afterwards that their matches so far have been great fun. He offered a handshake but Ibushi instead held up his hand in a scissors pose. This riled up HARASHIMA and he has rarely shown an angry side during his KO-D Title run. Yasu Urano calmed him down and HARASHIMA was back to his pleasant self for the end of show promo.

???????????????????????????????

The Pu Joshi Hyakkei Infomercial Match featured Makoto Oishi, Shiori Asahi, Antonio Honda and Tetsuya Endo all wrestling in schoolgirl outfits. An illustration of a wrestling move taken from the book would appear on the screen and it was up to the wrestlers to perform the move. Some of the moves shown were the Giant Swing, Boma Ye, Axe Bomber and Guillotine Drop. The final move was the Cactus Flower, Oishi & Asahi’s tag team finisher. It took a bit of effort to do the move on Honda due to his weight but they eventually pulled it off.

Konosuke Takeshita asked Kazuki Hirata to wrestle him without the Magnum TOKYO mask because he wanted to fight the Hirata he trained with. Hirata took the request to heart and resisted the urge to call for his music during the match. But late into the match the temptation proved to be too strong and Kazuki called for his song. Another song played over the sound system and Hirata was confused. Takeshita took advantage and used the German Suplex to win the match. Hirata got to hear his song afterwards.

Gota Ihashi offered to protect Saki Akai on her journey to beat Aja Kong for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. But he was just doing it for romantic reasons and stopped their tag match so he could ask for a kiss. Akai knocked him out with a High Kick.

Amon Tsurumi revealed his plans to create the King Of Dark Championship, a revolutionary new title to be used exclusively in dark matches. He wanted to give Ihashi and DJ Nira the opportunity to be the first champion at “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015”. Ihashi wasn’t eager about the idea until Amon suggested that he and Akai could wind up as a champion couple. Ihashi agreed right away. Nira however refused to take part because he wanted to be in the Iron Man Battle Royal instead. He only accepted when Tsurumi bowed to him and asked politely.
