fuma-ishikawa-headbutt

When DDT was done for the day, Union took over Korakuen Hall for their Golden Week show. The main event had FUMA and Shuji Ishikawa battling each other in a ring filled with roses for the Union MAX Title. Roses covered everything from the ropes to tables and chairs. Despite getting help from the King Legion at certain points, FUMA proved that he deserved to be champion by taking everything Ishikawa threw at him. He kicked out of the Running Knee Lift, the Splash Mountain threw a Rose Board. FUMA escaped from the Fire Thunder that would have driven him into a pile of chairs. He Headbutted Ishikawa and hit Buzzsaw Kicks and High Kicks. Ishikawa kept kicking out until FUMA hit the Jawbreaker Kick and then the Diving Headbutt. That was enough for FUMA to earn the win. FUMA declared himself the only original ace of Union. Yusuke Kubo suddenly approached FUMA to tell him Union was still willing to fight. He had Hiroshi Fukuda and Seiya Morohashi backing him up. This sets up a 6-Man Tag Team match between Union and the King Legion to take place soon.

fistbump

Isami Kodaka successfully defended the Independent World Jr. Title for the first time with a win over Yukio Sakaguchi. Isami’s kicks were too quick for the challenger. Sakaguchi was able to block the Isamuashi Zan but Kodaka immediately followed with a Buzzsaw Kick followed by another Isamuashi Zan for the three count. The two fistbumped after the match.

baggy-pants

The 2nd Generation Muscle Sakai Final was between Hiroshi Fukuda and Super Sasadango Machine. The winner gets to be the next Muscle Sakai. Let that sink in for a moment… Hanging above the ring was golden baggy pants, American flag baggy pants, gray baggy pants and t-shirts from both wrestlers. The golden pants are important as that is needed to represent Muscle Sakai II. It was up to the wrestlers to decide their fate. When Fukuda climbed the ladder his thoughts were broadcast over the sound system. Would he abandon his own identity to become Muscle Sakai? A voice from Heaven told him not to. Antonio Honda pulled down Fukuda and helped Sasadango up the ladder. Sasadango had the same crisis of confidence but he was more concerned by which baggy pants looked more fashionable. He decided to pull down the golden pants. But as he put them on Fukuda rolled him over and locked in an Armbar, forcing Sasadango to tap. Fukuda was given the right to be Muscle Sakai II and to wear the golden pants but he refused when he found out he would also take over Sakai’s 35 million yen mortgage, all of his taxes and also all of his obligations towards Sakai’s wife and family.

sagat-kazato

The King Legion continued their dominance over Union with a win over three of their regular wrestlers. The match started off as a brawl but then settled down when the Legion took control. The combined experience of the Legion was too much for the Union Sekigun and SAGAT scored the victory when he choked out Daichi Kazato with a Sleeper Hold.

shirai-ohka

Ken Ohka returned to Union for the first time since last year’s Union Ganbare War. He was here to reunite with Mio Shirai one last time before her retirement later this year. Kengo Mashimo joined in the occasion by using the name Kengo Ohka once more. Sadly the reunion ended in defeat when both Kengo & Seiya Morohashi applied Crippler Crossfaces to Shirai & Ohka. After the match Ohka led the crowd in cheers for Shirai and also Ganbare☆Wrestling.

fte-mii-cherry

Hibiscus Mii has come from out of nowhere to win the Fly To Everywhere Title! Her new title reign now gives her a reason to travel from Okinawa to Tokyo more often but she would rather defend the belt in her home promotion Ryukyu Dragon Pro Wrestling.

madoka-ladybeard

Madoka again tried to get Harumi Tachibana to marry him. He asked Ryu Gouma for legal advice over the issue. Gouma told him that according to Article 24 of the Constitution, marriage is established on the basis of only the agreement of both sexes. Article 741 of the Civil Code says the marriage is invalid if there was no agreement. Ladybeard would face Madoka to assess if he was worthy of marrying Tachibana. As the two wrestled Tachibana asked Gouma for his law book. The two fought over the book and it lead to Gouma accidentaly striking Ladybeard when he pulled the book away with all his strength. Madoka capitalised and rolled over Ladybeard for the pinfall. Madoka again proposed to Tachibana but she dumped him for Ladybeard instead.

swandive-somato

In a rematch of their Saitama Super Arena main event, HARASHIMA got his revenge and the KO-D Openweight Title back from Kota Ibushi in front of a packed house at Korakuen Hall. Neither men held anything back. Ibushi hit the Phoenix Splash for a nearfall. HARASHIMA pulled out the Firebird Splash, a move he hasn’t used in years for a nearfall of his own. The match went dangerously close to ending the same way as Saitama when Ibushi stopped HARASHIMA from doing the Swan Dive Somato and held him in position for the Phoenix Plex. This time around HARASHIMA avoided the ultra finisher by Headbutting Ibushi until the champion lost his grip. HARASHIMA then lifted Ibushi up for a Canadian Backbreaker and dropped him vertically into a Facebuster. With Ibushi taken out by this new move, HARASHIMA hit the Swan Dive Somato to seal the deal. With a gleaming smile HARASHIMA graciously accepted a bowing handshake from Ibushi. The former champion could only say “Thank you” before he was helped to the back by his Golden☆Storm Rider team mates. HARASHIMA said he was insanely happy to be champion again and he called Ibushi the best and the strongest.

higuchi-harashima-kudo

Kazusada Higuchi came out to announce the possible KO-D Title match between himself and HARASHIMA at Sapporo Teisen Hall on 24th May. Higuchi said he didn’t see the match but still he thought it was really terrible. HARASHIMA called Higuchi an awesome threat for a rookie and wished him luck. KUDO then came out and said he will get his KO-D Title shot at Korakuen on 31st May. HARASHIMA noted how tough it will be to have two title defences in two weeks but he’s up for the challenge. Why? Because he trains!

strong-drift

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi saw off the challenge from Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles around their waists. Ishii showed great strength when he gave Sekimoto the High Angle Double Arm DDT but Okabayashi stopped the pin. Sekimoto ducked the Kneel Kick and deadlifted Ishii into a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ishii kicked out at 2 but was finished after a Lariat and the Deadlift German Suplex. The champions identified Drift as a great tag team in a backstage interview and credited them for being prepared and for having a strong bond. Okabayashi wants to defend the titles more and more until they beat everyone in DDT.

sasaki-miyatake-rightchallenge

The remaining Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract was up for grabs in another Royal Rumble Ladder match. Two other contracts were on the line since the wrestlers holding them were in the match. Those two contracts did in fact change hands. Daisuke Sasaki pinned Yasu Urano to win his contract and DJ Nira pinned Saki Akai to win hers, ruining her chance to cash in later in the night. DJ Nira eliminated himself to prevent getting pinned by jumping out of the ring. Sasaki tried the same but the remaining wrestlers stopped him. Sasaki convinced his team mate Suguru Miyatake that he wanted no further part in the match and he would let Miyatake grab the last contract. Miyatake climbed the ladder and Sasaki knocked it over, knocking Miyatake onto the ropes. Sasaki then repositioned the ladder and climbed it to pull down the prize. He now has two contracts in his possession.

shuten-doji-rightchallenge

Another Right To Challenge Contract changed hands when KUDO pinned Antonio Honda in a tag match. All of Shuten-dōji celebrated with a toast in the ring.

guyz-beats-boyz

Who was the mystery partner for the YaroZ team? It was “Mr. Policeman” Takayuki Ueki and he’s here to arrest the BOYZ team! Ueki pulled out a gun late into the match but Kazuki Hirata was quick to disarm him. Brother Tommy accidentaly broke the HIRATA GO glasses but Ueki came to the rescue with glasses for everbody! “TOKYO GO” played over the speakers and everyone decided to dance. As that went on Sanshiro Takagi pinned Hirata with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb.

sakaguchi-katsumata

Today is the one year anniversary of Shunma Katsumata’s debut match. Yukio Sakaguchi didn’t care and knocked out the rookie with some High Kicks.

higuchi-ihashi

After the dark match Gota Ihashi stormed out and complained about not being booked on this show. He demanded a match and to put his King Of Dark Title on the line so he can finally escape from dark match hell. Kazusada Higuchi accepted the match despite having just wrestled. Ihashi hit him with the title belt but then ran into a Big Boot. Higuchi then pinned him with the Goten.

Danshoku Dino’s Buddhist pilgrimmage will lead him towards a very spiritual wrestler. On 17th May Dino will take on Jinsei Shinzaki! Dino is now in deep meditation and was silent for his entire post-match interview. Also on the show Akito defends the DDT Extreme Title against Shigehiro Irie in a Last Man Standing match.

Masa Takanashi has decided to cash in his Right To Host Box Office contract. With this contract the holder can book his own show. Takanashi decided he will share the prize with KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi and so on 22nd July there will be a Shuten-dōji produced event at Shinjuku FACE.

niconico12

The main event was changed when it was reported Bob Sapp hadn’t arrived in the arena yet and was suffering from enormous damage after his defeat to Sachiko Kobayashi yesterday. Super Sasadango Machine took his place and was victorious with Sanshiro Takagi over the Michinoku Pro team. Sapp finally appeared after the match and challenged M-Pro’s guest San-chan to a fight. San-chan was outmatched and overpowered but was encouraged by the others to continue. Chibi Tiger and members of the TV show Mecha-Mecha Iketeru! came down to help him and everyone had to be seperated. San-chan swore he will do his best to have his debut wrestling match later this year.

niconico13

An example of the stream chat making memes took place in the semi-main event. During the match Yasu Urano told Hiroshi Fukuda that he is no big deal. This caused the chat to be flooded with “Fukuda is no big deal” comments.

niconico14

Kazuki Hirata was physically stopped from dancing during his entrance. Hirata sulked throughout the match until he got his glasses back.

niconico15

Kota Ibushi just couldn’t help himself and made his match spread across the convention hall. With Michael Nakazawa in his corner once more, Ibushi dragged Daisuke Sasaki, Danshoku Dino and Makoto Oishi over to exhibits like the Guinness World Record Challenge booth, a dinosaur skeleton display and a Niconico van which Ibushi of course Moonsaulted off of.

niconico16

A single Right To Challenge Contract was passed around three times in the Rumble Match. Tomomitsu Matsunaga pinned Yoshihiko to win its contract, then DJ Nira pinned Matsunaga. Saki Akai tapped out Nira with a Modified Camel Clutch but there was one more person left to enter. Out came Michael Nakazawa back from Singapore! He greeted the crowd and then went straight for Akai and her contract. Akai pulled down the ropes behind her and Nakazawa went flying out of the ring to end the match. Akai said she wants to cash in her contract at the next Korakuen Hall show. She also credited meeting Genichiro Tenryu yesterday for giving her extra fighting spirit.

niconico17

The Kamen Joshi musical performance was interrupted by Homoiro Clover Z members Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi and Hiroshi Fukuda. The two groups had a dance contest which Kamen Joshi won. Homoiro Clover Z took the defeat badly and attacked the idols. Help came in the forms of Shigehiro Irie and Yoshihiko. They and the Kamen Girls overpowered Dino’s crew and chased them off before performing another song.

niconico18

Super Sasadango Machine repeated yesterday’s strategy on Shigehiro Irie. That is he encouraged the stream chat to type “Irie, behind you!” whenever Irie climbed the top rope. Sasadango also did som calculations and discovered his strategy to beat Ibushi yesterday only caused 35% damage instead of the 70% he originally predicted. There was also a ring girl present and Sasadango gave her a piece of paper that said “Room No. 2735” to use as another distraction. The plan backfired when another Super Sasadango Machine appeared and flirted with the ring girl, distracting the original. Irie capitalised and pinned Sasadango with the Flying Sausage. He then unmasked the imposter Sasadango and revealed him to be Hiroshi Fukuda.

niconico19

The ring suffered some damage during the King Of Dark Title match. When the match was over Gota Ihashi did some impersonations of Shinsuke Nakamura and Hiroshi Tanahashi to keep the crowd entertained while the ring was being repaired.

niconico10

Over the space of a day DDT with the help of au held a bunch of matches inside the Niconico Chokaigi Super Conference. Airing live on Niconico, DDT claims the stream had over 130,000 viewers at its peak. The stream chat had a vital role during the show. The chat appeared on the arena screen in real time for all to see, scrolling across sideways in a “bullet hell” format.

niconico2

There was a “wedding” between a 39 year old man named Atari and a 17 year old woman named Mayutan that devolved into a pie fight and was interrupted by Danshoku Dino. Also Mr. AKIBA was there to catch the bouquet. Dino got his hands on the groom until HARASHIMA and Akito came to the rescue. A match was then held between HARASHIMA & Akito versus Dino & Makoto Oishi to determine if the bride and groom could get married. HARASHIMA & Akito won but Dino had one more trick up his sleeve to stop the marriage… Bob Sapp! Dino fought off HARASHIMA & Akito while Sapp overpowered Atari to stop him from kissing the bride. All hope was lost until “TAKE THE DREAM” played over the speakers. Out came Kensuke Sasaki! There was a masked woman next to him who was revealed to be famous singer Sachiko Kobayashi. She easily destroyed both Dino Sapp to bring an end to the fiasco. Atari and Mayutan finally kissed while everyone around them cheered.

niconico3

The Niconico Super Conference was the perfect location for a Super Sasadango Machine PowerPoint presentation. Today’s strategy to beat Kota Ibushi involved using the Niconico chat on screen to distract Ibushi from doing the Phoenix Splash. Sasadango told the viewers to post “Ibushi, behind you!” whenever he was going up to the top rope and faced the screen. This would confuse Ibushi and give Sasadango time to climb up and do a top rope Brainbuster that would inflict 70% HP damage. Sasadango was certain that it would work so well that Ibushi would move full time to New Japan as a result. The distraction worked several times and in the end Sasadango hit the top rope Brainbuster followed by the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock. Ibushi then kicked out at one. Sasadango was stunned, so much so that he removed his mask in shock. Ibushi got up and did his own Lehmann Shock to win the match.

niconico4

Genichiro Tenryu and Yukio Sakaguchi had a staredown after their match. Tenryu offered a handshake but Sakaguchi chopped him instead! Tenryu struck back with a chop of his own and the two stared each other down again. In a backstage interview Sakaguchi said he would fight Tenryu one-on-one anytime.

niconico5

Racial tensions highlighted the match between Hiroshi Fukuda and Yoshihiko. Fukuda was angry he had to fight a doll instead of somebody American or a white Hispanic. He then accused Yoshihiko of just being a sex doll and attacked it to start the match. Yoshihiko turned the tables with a Swan Dive Swinging DDT but Fukuda was back in control when he applied the Sleeper Hold. After doing the Michinoku Driver three times, he climbed up top and yelled he would do a 450 Splash. Yoshihiko suddenly sprang up to Fukuda and threw him off the top rope. Daisuke Kiso was then accidentally knocked out in the crossfire. Fukuda saw his chance and struck Yoshihiko with his tambourine while the ref was down. Unfortunately Kiso was still unconscious when Fukuda went for the pin. Fukuda revived him but Yoshihiko was back up and hit the Yoshihiko Destroyer for the three count, winning Fukuda’s Right To Challenge contract in the process!

niconico6

Sadly the mascots in Yuru-chara Pro Wrestling did not actually wrestle. Actually, I’m not quite sure what it is they did. In fact some of them had a lot of trouble trying to get into the ring and the entire entrance portion of the segment took 23 minutes. Kumamon shook the ropes like the Ultimate Warrior and attacked the others with a towel (Why? For the glory of Satan of course!). Okazaemon brought in a chair for all the mascots to play musical chairs with. One of the mascots removed its head to reveal a smaller, lightweight mask for it to see better. Burikatsu-kun spoke and complained about being tired so Amon Tsurumi stopped the match. Guest ring announcer Terashima Yufu picked Fukka-chan as the winner because she believed it worked the hardest. It is also her favourite mascot so favouritism probably played a part in this. The mascots then played a proper game of musical chairs which Fukka-chan also won. Kumamon did not give a fuck during this and heeled on everyone.

niconico7

M.S.S.P is a Let’s Play group and they were at the event challenging Danshoku Dino to some video games. The first game was Fire Pro Returns on the Playstation 2. Dino played as the Fire Pro version of himself and his opponent picked Taiji Ishimori. Dino won with the Danshoku Driver. The next game was Kinnikuman Muscle Tag Match for the Famicom. M.R.R.P won this round. The final round was on Kinnikuman Tag again after an audience vote. Dino defeated M.R.R.P to win the challenge. He then chased after them to do some lewd things end the segment.

niconico8

Kazuki Hirata was too busy dancing to notice Tomomitsu Matsunaga sneaking behind him for a flash three count. The screen filled with lines of 88888888 from the stream chat which represents an applause in Japanese internet speak. An immediate rematch was held and Hirata redeemed himself by getting the win for his team.

niconico9

Gota Ihashi continues to be stuck in dark match hell. He lost to DJ Nira not once but twice in two successive King Of Dark Title matches. The second match was a sumo bout with a masked Hoshitango as the referee. Nira somehow won when he tried to lift Ihashi and the champion collapsed under his own weight.

MIKAMI missed the show due to a high fever. Kouki Iwasaki took his place.

5. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Kota Ibushi (c) Vs HARASHIMA

So two of the wrestlers fighting over the last Right To Challenge Contract already have contracts. That’s a little unfair. I assume Hiroshi Fukuda’s and Yasu Urano’s contracts will be safe if they are just eliminated by ring out.

DDT “FRIENDSHIP, EFFORT, VICTORY IN NAGOYA”, 17/05/2015
Nagoya Nakamura Sports Center

1. DDT Extreme Title: Akito (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie

Akito has picked Shigehiro Irie to be the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. It means a lot for Irie to get the title shot in Nagoya where he wrestled for several years before joining DDT.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU IN SAPPORO ~DRAMATIC DREAM CLOCK TOWER~”, 24/05/2015
Sapporo Teisen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Kota Ibushi (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

The DNA stand out Kazusada Higuchi has made it public that he will cash in his Right To Challenge Contract in his home prefecture of Hokkaido. All he has to do is not lose it until then. He’s on the right track because he has yet to drop a fall in his young pro wrestling career.

Saki Akai and Tomoya will wrestle on the show.
