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.
