They will be teaming together until then and there has been little to no tension between the two until the match was made. There is also more at stake than just the championship. ¥ 2,000,000 will be rewarded to the winner of the main event courtesy of the match’s sponsor Good Com Asset, a real estate corporation. The Extreme Title Match also has a sponsor, the manga series Uchikami!

sakaguchi-higuchi

takeshita-sasaki

sakaguchi-takeshita

Yukio Sakaguchi is the winner of this year’s King Of DDT and is guaranteed a KO-D Openweight Title match at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015” this August. Sakaguchi defeated Kazusada Higuchi by referee stoppage in the semi finals while Konosuke Takeshita overcame Daisuke Sasaki. In the final Sakaguchi used his knee strikes to great effect and finished off Takeshita with the newly named Right Knee Of God. Right now the Sumo Hall match-up is Sakaguchi versus KUDO, two wrestlers from the same unit. That almost wasn’t the case…

urano-cashes-in

ohka-cashes-in

ohka-kod-champ

kudo-cashes-in

All of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts have now been used up and as a result caused some temporary chaos in the main event scene. Yasu Urano pinned Masa Takanashi in a 6-Man Tag Team match to win his contract. Urano then cashed in the contract for a KO-D Title match against KUDO there and then. The two fought hard and were both laid out when Ken Ohka suddenly appeared. Taking a page from Seth Rollins, Ohka cashed in his own contract in the middle of the match! He went after KUDO but had to settle with pinning Urano to become the new champion! However KUDO stayed in the ring and cashed in his own contract for an immediate title match. Ohka fought with all his heart but was out of his depth. KUDO defeated Ohka to win back the title and will go on to the Sumo Hall main event.

tanahashi-chalenges-harashima

Hiroshi Tanahashi made a surprise appearance to announce he will be wrestling at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015”. He wanted to wrestle against the best wrestler in DDT and that is HARASHIMA! HARASHIMA said he isn’t normally interested in wrestlers from other companies but he is interested in fighting Tanahashi.

hirata-irie-dance

Shigehiro Irie stole Kazuki Hirata’s glasses before the opening match and used them to dance. He and Hirata had a dance battle for the glasses that ended in Irie knocking out Hirata with the Beast Bomber.

umeda-kick-nira

DJ Nira grouped together Gota Ihashi, the referee and ring attendants to shield himself from Kota Umeda during the King Of Dark Title match. Nira then climbed on top of the group to do an assisted Rocket Punch but Umeda High Kicked him in mid-air for the pin. Since Ihashi was not involved in the result he is still the King Of Dark Champion.

takagi-akai

Genichiro Tenryu will team with Sanshiro Takagi & Saki Akai for a 6-Person Tag Team match at the Sumo Hall show. Their opponents will be revealed at a later date. Sanshiro Takagi’s original idea was to do Tenryu Vs Akai but he decided the two teaming together would be more interesting.

lilico-returns

A pop idol and former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion made her return to DDT for an announcement. LiLiCo will have her debut pro wrestling match at Sumo Hall. She has already been training for three months and she wants a match with Gorgeous Matsuno.


Hard Hit Results

June 27, 2015

hard-hit-reboot

HARD HIT, 27/06/2015
Kanagawa Bayside Yokohama
??? Fans

1. Ryuichi Sekine (1D/0E/0P) defeated Jun Ando (1D/0E/0P) with a Rear Naked Choke (3:36).
2. Manabu Hara & Ryota Nakatsu (1D/0E/0P) defeated Hiroshi Kobayashi & Kenta Hattori (1D/1E/0P) by KO when Hara knocked out Hattori with a German Suplex (12:47).
3. Shigehiro Irie (3D/0E/0P) defeated Nobuhiro Tsurumaki (1D/1E/0P) by TKO with a Package Piledriver (4:56).
4. Super Tiger (0D/0E/0P) defeated Hoshitango (0D/0E/0P) by KO with a Low Kick (2:47).
5. Takafumi Ito (0D/1E/0P) Vs KEI Yamamiya (0D/1E/0P) ended in a Time Limit Draw (10:00).
6. Atsushi Aoki (1D/1E/0P) defeated Takuya Wada (1D/0E/0P) by Points Decision (10:00).
7. Grappling Tag Match: Shuichiro Katsumura & Mitsuhisa Sunabe defeated Shunichi Shimizu & Shunpei Ota when Katsumura submitted Ota with a Ninje Choke (12:28).
8. Koji Iwamoto (2D/1E/0P) defeated Ryo Kawamura (0D/0E/0P) with a Shoulder Lock (8:03).
9. Hiromitsu Kanehara (0D/2E/0P) defeated Hikaru Sato (2D/1E/0P) by Referee Stoppage (10:18).

Hard Hit held its first show since going independent from DDT in Bayside Yokohama today. While several DDT wrestlers took part in the show this is now very much Hikaru Sato’s promotion. While the attendence figure was not given, the show was sold out. Sato hopes today’s show will open up many possibilites for Hard Hit in the future.

Unfortunately for Hikaru Sato, his first fight under Hard Hit’s reboot ended unexpectedly when Sato dislocated his left ring finger. The injury happened when his opponent Hiromitsu Kanehara tried to fight out of a Cross Heel Hold. Kanehara tried to cheer Sato up by saying they had a good fight. Sato said it did not matter if an injury caused it but the right guy won.

From what I understand Koji Iwamoto beating Ryo Kawamura was quite the upset. Iwamoto blocked a Flying Knee Strike, took Kawamura down and tapped him out with a Shoulder Lock. Iwamoto had Shigehiro Irie and Ryuichi Sekine in his corner and they raised him onto their shoulders to celebrate the victory.

This will be a big show and by the end of it expect some idea of what this year’s Sumo Hall card is going to be. The King Of DDT winner gets a KO-D Openweight Title shot in Sumo Hall but I bet there will be a few other announcements as well.

DDT “SHUTEN-DOJI BOX OFFICE ~WHAT ARE CHERRY BLOOSOMS WITHOUT ALOCOHOL~”, 22/07/2015
Shinjuku FACE

1. He Can’t Stand Anymore, That’s Enough, Oh God Save Him – Punch Drunk Glove Match: Hoshitango & Kosei Kubota Vs Tanomusaku Toba & Kota Umeda
2. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Kengo Mashimo & Isami Kodaka

Shuten-dōji is not going to take things easy for their self produced show next month. Tensions between KUDO and Isami Kodaka grew during the “TAVERN WRESTLING” show this week. They clash again but this time with Yukio Sakaguchi and Kengo Mashimo also involved.

The Punch Drunk Glove match sounds like an excuse for everyone involved to punch each other in the face as much as humanly possible.


Yamashita Begins Shoot Boxing, Ibushi Enters Legendary Owarai Feud

June 24, 2015

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE GIRLS BATTLE 2015 ROUND 7”, 04/07/2015
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Akane Miura Vs MIZUHO
2. Saki Akai & Ai Shimizu Vs Nonoko & Syoko Nakajima
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: KANNA Vs Hyper Misao
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miyu Yamashita Vs Yuka Sakazaki

Hyper Misao takes the injured Erin’s place in the Tokyo Princess Cup. Misao will once again be against KANNA. She believes KANNA has it in her heart to be a hero and her alliance with Saki Akai is only a temporary act of rebellion.

Miyu Yamashita visited the Caesar Gym in Shibuya today to take part in a public shoot boxing practice session held by former UWF competitor Makoto Oe. Yamashita recently took up shoot boxing to become stronger after her defeat to Saki Akai in May. Oe thinks shoot boxing is an interesting direction for a pro wrestler to take and points to another joshi wrestler Syuri as someone who has been a champion in both sports at the same time. He invited Yamashita to take part in the “SHOOT BOXING GIRLS S-CUP 2015 ~FIGHTING WOMAN ASPIRATIONS~” show taking place in Ota Ward Gymnasium this August.

DDT “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 2 ~NO SUBTITLE~”, 12/07/2015

4. Close Encounters Of The Third Kind – Special 3 Way Match: Kota Ibushi Vs Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro

Kota Ibushi gets thrown into the famous Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro rivalry. May God have mercy on Yukinori Matsui if he’s the ref for this match. Handling two of those three wrestlers is bad enough.

There were plenty of drinks to be had by both the wrestlers and the audience throughout the show. MIKAMI sang some karaoke after his match. Takayuki Ueki made Hiroshi Fukuda take a sobriety test before their match and pulled a gun on him when Fukuda started misbehaving. Ueki calmed down when Fukuda gave him some beer. Isami Kodaka challenged KUDO for a singles match for his Right To Challenge contract after the main event.

The next “TAVERN WRESTLING” show on 4th July will feature Kodaka & Ryota Nakatsu Vs The Brahman Brothers in the main event.
