The Glass Is Half Full, Partial Beer Garden Cards

July 28, 2015

The DDT summer tradition is here! Beer Garden Week is a week long series of shows held every year in Shin-kiba 1st Ring. Each show is produced and booked by a different wrestler or stable in DDT. This leads to a variety of crazy matches and ideas. There is also plenty of beer and food served to the fans during the show. So let’s have a look at what’s on offer this year.

DDT “BEER GARDEN FIGHT 2015 ~DDT DAY~”, 01/08/2015

6. DDT Extreme Title Next Challenger Final: Yasu Urano Vs Makoto Oishi vs Masa Takanashi Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Hiroshi Fukuda

One of the highlights of Beer Garden every year is Hisaya Imabayashi visiting the area to tell ghost stories to the wrestlers. Last year had a few duds due to tiredness so here’s hoping this year will bring plenty of scares.

Drink every time X = Shiori Asahi.

Shin-kiba 1st RING

1. Shigehiro Irie Produce Match: X Vs Gota Ihashi
2. Hardcore 4 Way Match: Shigehiro Irie Vs Daisuke Sasaki Vs Yuko Miyamoto Vs Gabaiji-chan

According to the DDT website this show will involve a Round Girl named Chelsea. I assume this is the Stardom wrestler. I also assume she will be involved with whatever gives Gota Ihashi a concussion that day.

Shin-kiba 1st RING

1. Exercise & Stretch DVD Launch – All Out Stretch War: Kazuki Hirata (Yoyogi-Uehara) Vs Seiya Morohashi (Kasiwa)
2. World Triangle Match: Louis Takanashi XIV (France) Vs Hoshitango (Argentina) Vs Hiroshi Fukuda (America)

4. Lucha Extremadura Jasu: Sanshiro Takagi (Osaka), Toru Owashi (Nagano) & Kazuki Hirata (Yoyogi-Uehara) Vs X, X & X

T2Hide is bringing a lot of international flavour to this year’s Beer Garden. We got some old “gaijin” returning like Louis Takanashi XIV from France (with his Death Cake no doubt) and Italy’s own Sasaki And Gabbana.

Kazuki Hirata has his own fitness DVD now available on DDT’s online store. But this has created a conflict with another fitness enthusiast, Seiya Morohashi. The go to battle on the day the DVD is launched.

1. Grand Sumo Summer Tournament: X Vs X
2. Danshoku Dino (w/ Makoto Oishi) Vs Kota Umeda (w/ Kazusada Higuchi)

4. Turn Based Wrestling ~Endless Gig~: Danshoku Dino Vs Ken Ohka

Songs by Tomoyasu Hotei and B’z will alternate during the main event. Danshoku Dino can only win during Hoeti songs while Ken Ohka can only win during B’z songs.

Some weird “Mixed Martial Arts” competition takes place here, except each competitor represents a cultural art. Masa Takanashi represents Shogi writing, Yuko Miyamoto competes as a former student council president, Sambo Oishi fights for newspapers and Gota Ihashi has the backing of society’s pottery section.

Shin-kiba 1st RING

As always a fan drawn 6-Man Tag draws the series to a close. The two teams will be determined by a lottery with each pick chosen by a random member of the audience. This is also the final show before “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015”.

80 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Ganpuro Constituency Final: Yukihiro☆Jienotsu☆Abe defeated Mac Imanari with the Abe†Holic (9:33).
2. Unprecedented Rematch: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs GENTARO ended in a Time Limit Draw (15:00).
3. Special Single Match: Ken Ohka defeated Mitomi Masayuki with the Spear Of Flame (12:43).

In the main event Shibata made an unwelcome appearance by attacking Ken Ohka. Mitomi Masayuki dragged Shibata away and told him he wanted to fight Ohka fair and square. Ohka got the victory and Shibata told off Masayuki for rejecting his help.

The problems between Shinichiro Tominaga and GENTARO now seem to be water under the bridge after they fought to a 15 minute draw. Tominaga had GENTARO in the Cobra Clutch but was rolled into a Cradle for a nearfall when the time expired. He and GENTARO drank beer together after the match.

Mac Imanari wrestled in a Superman costume and explained he had to become Superman in order to beat Yukihiro Abe. That didn’t happen. Abe won the match and qualified for the upcoming DDT Dramatic General Election.

J-Soul Pandita III IV appeared at the end of the show sticking pictures of cats and wolves to the wall.

Ohka announced that Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie will come to Ganpuro on 23rd September to take on Power Of Dreams. Ohka wanted Chikara & Yumehito Imanari to face a team that held the All Asia Tag Team Titles, a championship associated with Chikara’s grandfather Rikidozan.

6. KUDO & Masa Takanashi defeated Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita when Takanashi pinned Honda with the Takatonic (18:20).

Masa Takanashi pinned Antonio Honda in the main event, possibly earning a DDT Extreme Title match in the process.

Danshoku Dino was left with a massive hand print on his ass after Keisuke Ishii hit him with multiple chops to that area during their match.

Yukio Sakaguchi says he feels like he has reawaken ever since he stood up to KUDO.

After beating Daisuke Sasaki in the opener, Yuji Okabayashi said he has less to fear in their upcoming KO-D Tag Team Title match. Sasaki said today’s match will have no relation to the title match. He also said he is calculating the timing of his Hurricanrana to make it more effective.

Gota Ihashi came out before the show demanding to have a King Of Dark Title match. He desperately does not want to face “Hollywood” Stalker Ichikawa in the dark match at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015”. Amon Tsurumi brought Ryota Nakatsu, Kouki Iwasaki and Suguru Miyatake into the ring. Ihashi chose Nakatsu as his opponent and quickly lost. Ihashi then challenged Iwasaki and again quickly lost. He finally challenged Miyatake and once more took the pin. After gaining three unwanted title defences under his belt, Ihashi was told to leave the ring.

DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2015”, 25/07/2015
Tokyo Big Sight
??? Fans

Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way 6-Person Tag Match: Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Hyper Misao defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai and Antonio Honda, Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Nonoko when Dino pinned Hirata with the Danshoku Driver onto a table (27:00).

DDT returned to the HandMade In Japan Festival for their annual Falls Count Anywhere match for the event. Before the match began Amon Tsurumi went over the rules. If a wrestler broke any of the products on display in the area, they would have to pay for it. Each of the wrestlers entered the stage wearing handmade masks created by sellers at the event.

Kazuki Hirata’s dance was interrupted by the match starting on the stage. Hyper Misao dove off the stage onto some of her opponents on the ground below. Sanshiro Takagi brought out the Dramatic Dream combat bicycle and Lariated Tomomitsu Matsunaga as he cycled past him. Danshoku Dino brought out a giant hammer and swung wild with it. The match travelled into indoors and Dino reminded everyone to be careful around the trade hall. He and Makoto Oishi bought some smartphone covers and wore them on their hands. Takagi and Antonio Honda bought some t-shirts while Saki Akai found a massive mecha fist. She used it to rocket punch everyone. Back at the outdoor stage Honda did some Bionic Elbows and yelled “Dusty!” during each one. Nonoko joined in but she yelled “Busty!” instead. Everyone fought over the HIRATA GO! glasses and the defeated were thrown into Dino’s ass on a ladder. After that Dino and Hirata were the last left standing and Dino put Hirata through a table with the Danshoku Driver for the win.

After the match Dino told the crowd their is no destruction without creation. He noted there was not as much destruction as last year’s match but they were still able to create. He then spoke of a girl who saw last year’s match and afterwards wanted to be a pro wrestler. That girl is now Hyper Misao. She confirmed the story and started to cry. She came all the way from Gotham City in northern Kanto to visit the event and enjoyed what she saw from DDT. Today was also her first victory which makes the match even more memorable for her.

1. Nonoko defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Pie Fly Flow (6:45).
2. Miyu Yamashita defeated Hyper Misao with the Attitude Adjustment (8:48).
3. Saki Akai, Ai Shimizu & KANNA defeated Syoko Nakajima, Yuka Sakazaki & Akane Miura when Akai pinned Sakazaki with the Rookie Award (9:44).

Saki Akai insulted Erin after the main event, saying Erin’s rest has done nothing to make her more beautiful. She also had a gift for Erin. She ordered Ai Shimizu to hand over a bag containing cheese, milk and anchovies. Akai told Erin to eat more and gain strength so she can get to her level.

MIZUHO was pulled from the show due to suffering from a high fever. Her planned 3 Way match became just a singles between Nonoko and Rika Tatsumi.
