The King Of DDT semi-finals are set. Kazusada Higuchi Vs Yukio Sakaguchi and Konosuke Takeshita Vs Daisuke Sasaki will take place on 28th June along with the grand final. Sakaguchi dispatched Makoto Oishi with the Right Knee Of God. Takeshita narrowly avoided being wrongly disqualified when Masa Takanashi faked getting hit with the DDT Extreme Title belt he stole from Akito again after Match #1. Sasaki got the upset win over his stablemate Kota Ibushi. Sasaki seated Ibushi on a chair outside the ring and did a Super Diving Elbow Drop from the top rope onto him. Sasaki avoided the Sit Down Last Ride and pulled in the ref to distract Ibushi and flash pin him with the Sasaki Huracanrana. Ibushi was disappointed to lose and blamed Suguru Miyatake. Finally in the battle of the heavyweights Higuchi scored a great victory over Shigehiro Irie. Higuchi offered a handshake after the match but Irie rejected it.
DDT will move up from Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium #2 to the bigger Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium #1 on 28th November. The event is called “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2015” and the main event will be the KO-D Openweight Champion defending the title against the winner of this year’s DDT Dramatic General Election. Sanshiro Takagi spoke about the building hosting matches like Nobuhiko Takada Vs Bob Backlund as well as cards from UWF and SWS.
Despite being thrown off by MIKAMI’s speed and use of ladders, Strong BJ succeeded in another KO-D Tag Team Titles defence. Yuji Okabayashi is confident he and Daisuke Sekimoto can beat anyone in DDT. Right now there are no immediate challengers in line.
Ken Ohka appeared in the balcony after the 4 Way Match to give another warning to KUDO about cashing in his Right To Challenge contract. Amon Tsurumi apologised to KUDO for allowing Ohka to sneak into the show again. KUDO didn’t care because he knows Ohka is not going to cash in anytime soon.
Hello darkness my old friend. Gota Ihashi is now a two time King Of Dark Champion. He never got a chance to enjoy wrestling outside of the preshow. Amon Tsurumi happily handed Ihashi the belt after the match.
