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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
