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.
