A team challenge took place throughout the show. The Dropkick Bar wrestlers were on Team Red and their opponents were on Team White.

In the main event the White Team introduced Jun Kasai as their mystery wrestler. Isami Kodaka landed the Diving Double Knee Drop from the ladder onto Ryota Nakatsu to win the match and the challenge for his team. Afterwards he offered Kasai a match on 27th October. Kasai accepted.

Hiroshi Fukuda and The Great Kojika sang old songs while they wrestled each other.

Music from Ashita no Joe played throughout the Glove Match. By the time the match went into the final round Kodaka was starting to resemble Joe Yabuki in his final fight.

A single lighttube was attached to the ropes for Match #3. The aim of the match was to smash the lighttube into the opponent.

In the opening match a wrestler had to drink a glass of tequila every time they were thrown out of the ring. Tetsuya Endo put Nakatsu in a Sleeper Hold and force fed him the bottle, rolling him over with a School Boy afterwards.

KUDO was in attendance to watch his Shuten-dōji brother Yukio Sakaguchi defend the KO-D Openweight Title. The champion hugged KUDO before the match started. Meanwhile Daisuke Sasaki was pushed down to the ring on a trolley by his Golden☆Storm Rider team mates. Sasaki only attempted to do the Vietnam Driver II once in the match but Sakaguchi slipped out of the hold and trapped Sasaki in a Sleeper Hold. Sasaki did catch Sakaguchi with a flash Hurricanrana but it wasn’t enough to get the three count. Sasaki aimed big by setting up an Avalanche Pedigree but Sakaguchi stopped him with some Elbow Strikes that left Sasaki hanging upside down from the turnbuckles by his legs. Sakaguchi climbed the turnbuckles and hit KUDO’s Diving Double Knee Drop! Sasaki somehow kicked out but was put into another Sleeper Hold. Sasaki showed some life when he stuck up his middle finger but Sakaguchi put him away with a Knee Strike to the face, a Jumping Knee to the back and finally the Right Knee Of God in the corner. Sakaguchi celebrated his title defence with KUDO and Masa Takanashi in the ring. His next title defence will be on 28th October against the runner up of the DDT Dramatic General Election.


It was a long, rocky hill to climb but #OhkaEmpire are the new KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions! They were the underdogs against Team Drift but Ken Ohka was able to lead his team to victory. Danshoku Dino came out with his hair dyed blonde for the occasion. The title change looked like it wouldn’t happen. Although #OhkaEmpire jumped Drift when the bell rang and Super Sasadango Machine tried to hit the Vertical Drop Lehman Shock three times, Drift stood their ground. Shigehiro Irie looked to be too strong for Ohka but Ohka ducked the Beast Bomber and hit the Spear Of Flame for the upset victory. Later on the new champions confronted Happy Motels to congratulate them on becoming the No. 1 Contenders. Ohka said #OhkaEmpire are a major sports group and they will train hard to defend the titles. Antonio Honda interrupted him with a Stunner. Dino ignored what was going on in the ring so he could have his way with Mao Inoue at ringside.


Kota Ibushi & Suguru Miyatake both entered the ring for their match carrying a drink that was described as Ibushi’s medicine. He consumed it during the match to get an ability boost.


Joey Ryan leaves Japan for now undefeated. He made a friend in Hiroshi Fukuda during his stay. Fukuda told Ryan he is going to be lonely without him and he wrote him a love letter that is also a song that is 16 bars long. Ryan told Fukuda he is his best friend in Japan and they will team again because he will be back in November. When Ryan comes back he wants to face a variety of different wrestlers but none more so than Danshoku Dino.


Toru Owashi did not want any nonsense from Kazuki Hirata today. No goofy glasses, no entrance robe or anything of that sort. Hirata had to go get other gear. Later on Owashi’s own wrestling gear went missing. The only clothing he could find in his locker was a peach costume he used to wrestle in. He had no other choice but to become “Momowashi” once more. It turned out Hirata stole Owashi’s gear and he wore it for the match! At one point Hirata put Owashi in a Stretch Plum just for the sake of making the pun. They later danced to “Tokyo GO!” until Owashi pinned Hirata with a School Boy out of nowhere. Owashi asked afterwards why Hirata stole his gear. Hirata said he found out this month is Owashi’s 15th anniversary in pro wrestling and his 10th anniversary in DDT. Owashi must have forgotten about it. To celebrate Hirata decided to wear Owashi’s gear so he could be more like him. Hirata said Owashi’s bullying has been painful but he still wants them to work hard together going into Owashi’s 11th year in DDT. He gave Owashi his peach helmet back, put on his Hirata GO! glasses and they danced.


Gota Ihashi is free from dark match purgatory once more! Thanks to some help from his Pigging 2015 team mates, Ihashi was able to beat Sanshiro Takagi in the dark match, making Takagi the new King Of Dark Champion! Ihashi threw the belt at Takagi and was so happy that he added himself to the opening match. He then invited Saki Akai to participate in the match to even out the numbers. Akai did not want to take part until Matsunaga revealed that he has her toothbrush. He placed it in Ihashi’s mouth and Akai stormed the ring to kick Ihashi in the face. She went for a Diving Cross Body but Matsunaga dodged and she landed on Makoto Oishi instead. Shunma Katsumata was blinded by blue mist and Ihashi pinned him with a Moonsault to give him a rare two match winning streak. He celebrated by filling his mouth with toothpaste and brushing his teeth with Akai’s toothbrush. He said he was satisfied by the strawberry taste.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki has been honing his new Vietnam Driver II finisher all month long. The move has pinned Yukio Sakaguchi, earning Sasaki the KO-D Openweight Title match. However since then Sakaguchi has been figuring out how to counter it and he was able to pin Sasaki at a later show. Sasaki claims this is all part of his plan to win the title.

Things are looking up for #OhkaEmpire as they prepare to fight Team Drift one more time. Danshoku Dino has gotten the better of Keisuke Ishii in their recent matches together and Super Sasadango Machine re-established how powerful the Lehman Shock is. However Ken Ohka sticks out as the weak link of the team.

Joey Ryan has won all of his matches so far with the Sweet Tooth Music, a Super Kick to an opponent while they have a lollipop stuck in their mouth.

Bambi turned on Team Ganpuro when she got hold of a barbed wire baseball bat and swung at Ken Ohka instead of Minoru Fujita. Ohka was then put away with the Lanakila-X from Osamu Namiguchi followed by the Stuka Splash from Hi69. Fujita crawled on top of Ohka for the pin. After the match Fujita & Bambi challenged Ohka to find a female wrestler and face them in a Mixed Tag Match on 14th October. Furthermore Fujita added a stipulation that the losing team will be forced to banish one of their allies from Ganpuro. Hi69 also challenged Yukihiro Abe and Yumehito Imanari to a tag team match. Hi69’s partner will be Madoka.

Shuichiro Katsumura and Shibata got into a brawl after Match #3. Afterwards Mr. No appeared and Katsumura kicked it in the head. Mr. No shook it off. Katsumura challenged it to a match on 14th October.

It turned out the gorilla in the 3 Way Match was Kyoko Kimura. She appeared in the ring in her normal wrestling gear but was announced as “Height and weight absolutely unknown, Gorilla!” When she won the match Ohka approached her and thanked her. Kyoko explained who she was but Ohka misunderstood and thought she said her full name was Gorilla Kimura. Kimura slapped him and left the ring.

Many wore something like baseball, basketball or rugby uniforms but Yukio Sakaguchi came out dressed as a construction assistant and HARASHIMA was dressed as Hayabusa. HARASHIMA explained he was representing the student wrestling club.

Daisuke Sasaki and Masa Takanashi weren’t on the right page when they teamed together. Some confusion between the two led to Takanashi getting kicked in the head and pinned by Kota Umeda. After the match Takanashi challenged Sasaki to a match. Johnny Edojima came out and booked the match for the next BOYZ event at Korakuen Hall on 29th November.

1. Kouki Iwasaki defeated Dai Suzuki with a Capture Suplex (7:58).
2. Joey Ryan defeated Suguru Miyatake with the Super Kick (6:57).
3. Mao Inoue defeated Shunma Katsumata with the 450 Splash (9:48).
4. Shinjiro Otani defeated Mizuki Watase with a Half Crab (15:03).
5. Ryota Nakatsu defeated Kota Umeda with a German Suplex (14:28).
6. Katsuhiko Nakajima defeated Kazusada Higuchi with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (16:00).

Katsuhiko Nakajima offered to team up with Kazusada Higuchi for a match sometime in the future. Higuchi was flattered by the offer and said it’s an interesting idea. The team up might happen on the 12th October DNA show in Kitazawa. Yukio Sakaguchi is also scheduled to compete.

There was mixed fortunes for the two new rookies. Mao Inoue got an upset victory over Shunma Katsumata. Despite being smaller, Katsumata should have had the benefit of experience on his side. Instead Inoue had the Swan Dive X Factor scouted and blocked the move with a Dropkick. He then hit the 450 Splash to end it.

Mizuki Watase on the other hand was taken to school by the visiting Shinjiro Otani. Almost literally in fact. Otani submitted Watase with a Half Crab and told him to look up the move on page 279 in his wrestling textbook.

Another new rookie was introduced on the show. Daiki Shimomura is a high school student who wrestles for the nkw micro indie. His debut is set for 12th October.
