An eventful King Of DDT 1st Round filled up the majority of today’s show. Yukio Sakaguchi beat Keisuke Ishii and compared the tournament to climbing a mountain. Makoto Oishi overcame Hiroshi Fukuda’s shenanigans and used Fukuda’s USA flag to celebrate afterwards. Masa Takanashi attacked Akito as he entered the ring. Akito countered the Takatonic into a Knee Crusher but Takanashi withstood the pain and cradled Akito for the fast victory. Takanashi stole the DDT Extreme Title afterwards but gave it back when HARASHIMA confronted him backstage. Konosuke Takeshita bested Antonio Honda in the battle of Happy Motels. Takeshita hopes to fight for the KO-D Openweight Title at Sumo Hall this year instead of facing a guest wrestler like last time. Daisuke Sasaki went over Kota Umeda. Sasaki planned on Umeda relying too much on High Kicks and he was right. Kazuki Hirata going full blast right from the start wasn’t enough to beat Kota Ibushi. The HIRATA GO glasses were placed on Ibushi’s face but he quickly took them off so he could win the match. Kazusada Higuchi restarted his journey towards another KO-D Title shot by overpowering Tomomitsu Matsunaga. Finally Shigehiro Irie earned a hard fought victory over Yasu Urano.
The 2nd round matches on 14th June are Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Makoto Oishi, Masa Takanashi Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Daisuke Sasaki Vs Kota Ibushi and Kazusada Higuchi Vs Shigehiro Irie.
Well this is a first. The reigning KO-D Champion now has possession of a Right To Challenge Contract. KUDO wiped out both Danshoku Dino and Soma Takao in a 3 Way Match. Takao had Dino in position for the Gin And Tonic when KUDO hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on Takao. KUDO then hit a second Diving Double Knee Drop this time on Dino to win one of his two contracts. Amon Tsurumi decided that if KUDO is still holding both the KO-D Title and the contract at the 9th August Beer Garden show (the last DDT event before “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015”) then the contract will be declared invalid and removed from contention.
KUDO and Tsurumi were then interrupted when Ken Ohka showed up outside the building and stood on two chairs at the window with a microphone. He said he was monitoring KUDO and then promoted tomorrow’s Ganbare☆Wrestling show in Tokyo. Tsurumi told Ohka it’s dangerous to stand next to the glass like that. KUDO said Ohka has certainly changed but he will crush him anytime. KUDO then said he hopes to defend the belt and then have a toast at Sumo Hall.
Sanshiro Takagi and the Arrogant Bastards were determined to successfully perform the DEATH FROM ABOVE Diving Headbutt. They finally succeeded on the third try and got the win. The Bastards were informed they only have two more dates left on their Japan visit and they requested to add one more before leaving. They were told the only extra show available is a Ganbare☆Wrestling event taking place tomorrow. Neither knew what that company was but they accepted the gig none the less.
At last Gota Ihashi has escaped from his dark match nightmare. An angry Ihashi went into his King Of Dark Title defence complaining about forever being an opening act. As Suguru Miyatake was about to respond, Ihashi attacked him to start the match. Ihashi quickly went for a Moonsault but missed. However a Cross Body Block shockingly got him the three count and transferred the King Of Dark Title over to Miyatake.
