The team of Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine were fully prepared for their KO-D Tag Team Title shot today. They both wore Machine masks and showed a Powerpoint presentation explaining how they plan to win. The presentation was titled “A Discussion Of The Tag Team Championship Challenges And Work-life Balance By A 37-Year-Old Duo”. Sasadango’s work-life balance is “Mold”, “Home”, “Graduate School”, “Local Talent Industry” and “Local Wrestler Business”. Dino’s balance is “Gay”, “Gay Time Writer”, “Security Guards”, “Gay Function Activities” and “Gay Wrestler”. They worked out that the champions’ balance is “Muscle Training”, “Wrestling”, “Muscle Training”, “Wrestling” and “Poseidon”. The solution to beat Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi was to create the Konaki Danshoku Driver, a double team version of Dino’s finisher. The move is named after Konaki Jijii from the manga GeGeGe no Kitarō. Sasadango puts on a Konaki Jijii costume which dramatically increases his weight and he leaps onto Dino’s back as he does the Danshoku Driver.
The challengers jumped the bell and did everything they could to get the advantage. A few DDT wrestlers interfered to help them and did so while wearing Machine masks. The challengers hit the Konaki Danshoku Driver on Okabayashi but Sekimoto was there to break the count. Frustrated, Dino & Sasadango removed their masks revealing that they are now both bald! They hit the Konaki Danshoku Driver again but Sekimoto breaks the pin once more. The champions turned the tables and Okabayashi got his hands on the Konaki costume. Okabayashi put on the costume, increasing his weight to 2 tons and hit the Golem Splash for the victory. After the match Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie came down to confirm their challenge for the KO-D Tag Titles on 29th April. That is the same date Ishii & Irie won the All Asia Tag Team Titles last year. Sekimoto told them to bring the best they got.
The Right To Challenge Battle Royal had eight prizes in total. The main one was a KO-D Openweight Title shot on 29th April in Korakuen Hall, which was given to HARASHIMA for winning the Royal Rumble portion of the match. He and Kota Ibushi didn’t play any games when they faced each other after the match. This time they accepted each other’s handshake.
The other seven prizes were in envelopes held above the ring. Each envelope had a different design on it except for two which both had a skull logo. Tetsuya Endo and Yasu Urano were the first to grab contracts while fighting over them at the top of the ladder. Urano got a Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract while Endo was gutted to find out he got a King Of Dark Title match. Masa Takanashi grabbed the smiley face envelope and got the rights to book his own DDT show. Hiroshi Fukuda snuck up the ladder during Kazuki Hirata’s dance entrance and got himself the 2nd Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract. Undefeated DNA rookie Kazusada Higuchi got the 3rd Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract and Antonio Honda got the 4th thanks to Konosuke Takeshita helping him up the ladder.
When the match was over there was still one contract remaining, the first time it has ever happened for this match. Amon Tsurumi decided the contract will go to a winner of another Battle Royal on 29th April. The contract holders were all interviewed after the match. Takanashi said he will think about when he will cash in his contract. Endo said he will cash in his King of Dark contract on 19th April in Saitama. Urano wants to win the KO-D Title fair and square so he will not cash in when the champion least expects it. Fukuda wants to consult with Barack Obama before he decides when to get his title match. Higuchi said he will get his title match in Sapporo Teisen Hall because he wants to win the title near his hometown. Honda declared he will not cash in until pollen season is over because his nose is currently stuffy.
Oh no! The hype backlash has begun for Shiori Asahi, although it is just as manufactured as his popularity. Amon Tsurumi is tired of Asahi being cheered so he instructed the fans to boo him instead just to mix things up. The fans played along and Asahi was stunned by the crowd turning on him when he came out. Akito on the other hand got a lot of support as the Total Count Match went on. With every second from a pinfall counting as a point, both wrestlers went with School Boys and Cradles to score quickly and often. Asahi took the lead by a wide margin but Akito came back and got the equalizing point right before the time limit expired. Sudden death quickly began and after 90 seconds of frantic scrambling, Akito got the winning pin count to regain the DDT Extreme Title! After the match Akito was thrilled to have the belt back and said the match taught him the importance of the one count.
Sanshiro Takagi wanted something crazy for his 20th anniversary and he got it. He & Jun Kasai fought Kota Ibushi & Suguru Miyatake in a wild Falls Count Anywhere match. Kasai and Ibushi were at each other’s throats for a lot of the match, brawling up to the balcony. There was a scary moment when Ibushi was lifted over the railing and was left hanging over ringside from the ledge! Tables, basins, a barbed wire baseball bat and the Combat Bicycle were all used during the match. Takagi splashed Miyatake through two tables and then Power Bombed him through a third while yelling “Congratulations 20th Anniversary!” to himself. Ibushi and Kasai had a staredown after the match.
