The time has come for my favourite DDT match to take place again. The Right To Challenge Battle Royal is a combined Royal Rumble and Ladder Match. The winner of the Rumble portion becomes the No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Openweight Title. However there are usually extra prizes hanging over the ring which is where the ladder comes in. In recent years the prize has been Money In The Bank style contracts that allow the holder to get a title match at any show they want. However there are also extra stipulations used to keep the contract holder on his toes. For example, last year the contract could change hands like a title if the holder was directly defeated in any match he wrestled in. The rules change or get altered every year so we won’t know for sure what the prizes and conditions are until right after the match.

The Drift Vs Shuten-dōji feud has extended itself into the regular tag team division. The two sides will collide again with a future KO-D Tag Team Title shot on the line.

Sanshiro Takagi will celebrate 20 years in wrestling with a good old fashion Falls Count Anywhere Match.

I think this is the first time anywhere a champion has been labelled as X.
