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.

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.

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!
