9. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Kota Ibushi
Kota Ibushi is currently reeling from yesterday’s defeat to Shinsuke Nakamura in the Tokyo Dome. He’ll have another chance at claiming some gold back in DDT when he faces the most dominant KO-D Openweight Champion in the company’s history, HARASHIMA.
Happy Motels face their greatest challenge yet in the form of Big Japan’s literal strongest duo, Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi. The young champions have already gone through many of DDT’s regular teams but none of them are on the level of Strong BJ.
The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles have gone through its most craziest matches ever since it went around the waists of Gorgeous Matsuno & the Brahman Brothers. Their title defences have turned into hardcore brawls with suitcases, bowling balls, a pig head and black ink all involved. So pretty much your regular Brahman Brothers match. Hardcore drinkers Shuten-dōji are the next team stepping into the ring with them.
The loser of the 25th January DDT Extreme Title match between Akito and Makoto Oishi will be in the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title Battle Royal. The winner will defend the Extreme Title against someone to be determined. Since most if not all of the active roster is booked already I think the challenger will come from outside of DDT. Maybe a Union guy now that I think about it.
Speaking of the Iron Man Title, Aja Kong now possesses the belt and has challenged all comers to try and take it off her. Among them is the previous champion Saki Akai who will surely love to get revenge for Kong spoiling her big moment. Bernard Ackah will also be there after the failed bodyguard and second Super Sasadango Machine admitted he wanted to do pro wrestling.
The Super TLC Match involves 10 Tables, 3 Ladders (1x3m high, 2x2m high) and 100 Chairs. Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai reform their Crazy & President team to face members of Team Dream Futures, Golden☆Storm Riders and the veteran team pairing of MIKAMI & Shuji Ishikawa.
The teams led by Akebono and Yoshihiko have been chosen. Akebono has T2Hide members Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata on his side. This means we could see Akebono be forced to do the Magnum TOKYO dance with Hirata! Yoshihiko has recruited Antonio Honda and The Great Kojika. At 72 years old Kojika is still going at it in the ring.
Super Sasadango Machine faces a mystery opponent. Heck if I know who it is. What’s worse is Machine may not be able to figure out how to prepare for the match. How can he set up a PowerPoint presentation if he doesn’t know what he is up against?
Michael Nakazawa’s final match in DDT, at least for now, is against a fully recovered Danshoku Dino. Nakazawa is moving to Singapore to focus on his career as a fitness instructor. Dino is returning from a hernia.
