The delivery truck carrying DDT’s merchandise and championship belts failed to arrive in time for the show to begin so Sanshiro Takagi had to make a replacement King Of Dark Title out of a poster. He had a secret plan to beat Kazuki Hirata and it involved Dai Suzuki throwing powder into Hirata’s eyes. Unfortunately the plan backfired and Takagi was blinded with the powder instead.

In the main event Gota Ihashi told the crowd he appreciates their support and he got them to chant “Ebisuko” for his team. Suguru Miyatake said he preferred pork ramen soup and called Ihashi a pig bastard. During the match Miyatake’s team put Ihashi in the Kaientai DX pyramid pose. Akira Shoji got annoyed by their dirty tactics and ran in on the match! He locked in Yasu Urano and Akito in a Double Half Crab while Ihashi hit a Body Press on Miyatake to win the match.

There were a lot of run ins during the main event. “Vince McMahon”, “Shane McMahon”, “Mankind”, “Booker T” (Suguru Miyatake thankfully not going blackface), “Scott Hall” (Konosuke Takeshita) and “The Rock” (Kazusada Higuchi) all made their presence felt throughout the match, hitting their finishers on the wrestlers and the referee. Isami Kodaka ran down to save Hiroshi Fukuda from a further beating after the match. “Hulk Hogan” (Antonio Honda) then appeared and yelled “You!” at Kodaka. Suddenly Nerima Sting attacked Kodaka with his baseball bat. Hogan and Sting did some posing for the crowd and then left. Fukuda said to Kodaka that Ultimate Superstars Action has finally come to Tavern Wrestling. He warned they will grow more dangerous until Tavern Wrestling is buried in darkness. He knows Hogan and Sting will return on the 25th November so they must join forces to stop them!

Kodaka challenged Jun Kasai to a singles match sometime down the line.

Aja Kong came to the show on short notice for an Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title defence. She faced off against four opponents and defeated them with little trouble. Suguru Miyatake asked Kong after the match if they could begin a relationship together. Kong rejected him and called him LiLiCo’s hand me down. Miyatake attacked Kong and Cherry suddenly entered the ring to help Kong fight him off. Cherry hugged Kong but it was a trap! Cherry used a Judo throw to slam Kong onto the canvas and she then pinned her to win the Iron Man Title! Cherry said she was taking the belt with her all the way to Osaka.

The main event had to be changed hours before the show when Kota Ibushi fell ill with a high fever. It was decided he was in no state to compete so he was pulled off the show and replaced with HARASHIMA. HARASHIMA was picked because finished 3rd in the Dramatic General Election so the KO-D Openweight Title was still on the line. He appeared calm when he entered the ring despite the hectic story behind his latest title shot. Maybe the lack of time for HARASHIMA to prepare was the deciding factor in Yukio Sakaguchi winning but respect was shared after the match. Sakaguchi was happy with getting a fierce fight after the emergency switch. He said he can wait for Ibushi another day but there is a name at the top of his list of who he wants to fight. That name is Isami Kodaka. The winner of the Dramatic Election was confirmed to be Sakaguchi’s next challenger in Osaka on 28th November.


The annual Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament took place after the main event. The prize on offer was a KO-D Title shot in Hakata on 13th December. Tetsuya Endo ran through the tournament and defeated Danshoku Dino in the final. He admitted he was a lucky boy and now looks forward to Sakaguchi Vs Kodaka. He said he told everyone before that he would one day get a KO-D Title shot before his tag partner Konosuke Takeshita. Now he has the chance to beat Takeshita in the race to become KO-D Champion first.


Daisuke Sasaki returned from a tour of Chile and brought along his newly won Chile MAX Lucha Libre Championship. This match was Kodaka’s first DDT appearance since the formation of BASARA but he was wearing a Union shirt in dedication to his former promotion. Kodaka thanked Sasaki for a good match but he now must pay attention to Sakaguchi.


HARASHIMA’s late addition to the main event meant that he was taken out of Match #5. Super Sasadango Machine was annoyed because it was too late for him to change his PowerPoint presentation and HARASHIMA featured heavily in it. For some reason he decided to team with Yasu Urano instead of Ken Ohka and the match was now a 2 Vs 1 Handicap bout. Ohka and Machine tried to avoid each other and play wrestle when they were in the ring together. However Ohka eventually got too into the action and soon both of them wrestled each other as normal. Sasadango tried to immitate HARASHIMA by going for the Somato but Ohka rolled out of the way and hit the Spear Of Flame to win the match. Afterwards Ohka yelled out his support for HARASHIMA in the main event and also for their upcoming meeting with Hiroshi Tanahashi next month.


The DDT Extreme Title match featured a lot of torture. Both Antonio Honda and Danshoku Dino were accompanied by a friend, Honda had Ryu Gouma and Dino had Toru Owashi. Whenever a wrestler initiated a rope break their friend would be tortured and held hostage at ringside. The match ends either through normal means or when a hostage gives up. Both Owashi and Gouma were trapped against a corner post and tortured with clothespins attached to the face, tickling, ice poured down their shirts, getting their face rubbed into Hiroshi Fukuda’s pet dog P-chan and having kusaya (salt-dried and fermented fish) wiped under their nose. The Kusaya proved to be Owashi’s breaking point and he gave up just when Dino was about to beat Honda with a 10 count KO. Kendo Kashin appeared (wearing Sasadango Machine’s title belt for some reason) after the match and challenged Honda to an Extreme Title match on the 28/11 Osaka show. He also gave him a pumpkin mask. Honda put on the mask and accepted the challenge. Kashin then grabbed the Extreme belt and handed it over to a fan in the front row. In a backstage interview Kashin said he wants to do a UWF Rules match but with pinfalls also allowed.


Freelance wrestler KENSO appeared after the intermission looking for Sanshiro Takagi. He first showed up at yesterday’s Tokyo Joshi Pro event and was told to come here if he wanted Takagi’s attention. KENSO brought up their feud from 2006 that culminated in a No Ropes Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match. KENSO said their rivalry had so much passion and he wishes to relive it. Takagi offered a singles match for 3rd November. The crowd started chanting “Dark” and KENSO thought they were referring to his Dark Kingdom stable. Takagi had to explain the King Of Dark Title to him. Since Takagi is the champion the match has to be for the title and thus has to be on the pre-show. KENSO still accepted the match.


Soma Takao used an Oklahoma Roll to pin Akito in Match #3. Takao calls the move the Endless Waltz.


Everyone in Match #2 wrestled in fancy dress costumes. Yuka Sakazaki was a witch and KAT-TOO were her zombies. Saki Akai wore an orange maid costume, Masa Takanashi wore a pumpkin mask and Kazuki Hirata was, who else? Magnum TOKYO.


Cherry still had the Union Fly To Everywhere Title belt with her when she faced Ai Shimizu in the opener.


There was a big applause for both Shigehiro Irie and Konosuke Takeshita after their time limit draw. Despite being a dark match both wrestlers wanted to fight their hearts out.


Hiroshi Fukuda distracted Syoko Nakajima by making her sing and then attacking her. Nakajima turned the tables when she interrupted Fukuda’s own singing with a Roll Up but Fukuda kicked out and applied an Armlock to submit her.

Daisuke Sasaki will hold a show celebrating his 10th anniversary of his pro wrestling debut on 18th November. Dick Togo will be the special guest referee for the main event and Antonio Honda Vs Yusuke Kubo is the first announced match.

Aja Kong will return with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title on the 28/11 Osaka show. She will defend the title in a Battle Royal.

Keisuke Ishii, Makoto Oishi and Masa Takanashi are all getting gender swapped characters for the Ring☆Dream online card game.

1. 3 Way Match: Yuka Sakazaki defeated MIZUHO and Azusa Takigawa when Sakazaki pinned Takigawa with a Cradle (8:00).
2. Syoko Nakajima, KANNA & Erin defeated Ai Shimizu, Nonoko & Rika Tatsumi when KANNA pinned Tatsumi with the Spear Of Versailles (10:44).
3. Saki Akamiya defeated Hyper Misao with a Big Boot (0:05).
3a. Rematch: Saki Akamiya defeated Hyper Misao with the Two Stage Face Kick (3:58).
4. Right To 1/4 Tokyo Joshi Title Appearance: Miyu Yamashita defeated Akane Miura with the Crash Rabbit Heat (7:14).
*Miyu Yamashita wins Akane Miura’s 1/4 Tokyo Joshi Title Shot.

The 1/4 Title Shot changed hands for the second match in a row. Miyu Yamashita has struggled in the past to beat Akane Miura but this time she was able to do it. She said she will never give up and she wants to win the championship at Korakuen Hall.

This show featured the debut match of the mysterious iron masked Saki Akamiya. She appeared holding a yoyo that seems to be of some importance. Hyper Misao was furious to see Akamiya and charged her at the opening bell. Akamiya kicked her with a Big Boot and won the match in 3 seconds. An immediate rematch took place and Akamiya won again in an overwhelming fashion. Misao asked Akamiya who she was. Akamiya said she is here to expose the weaknesses of the people. Her words had some sort of weird effect on Misao because she suddenly begged to join Akamiya’s side! Akamiya left the ring and Misao chased after her.

At the beginning of the show KENSO suddenly appeared at ringside looking for Sanshiro Takagi. The two had wrestled in a feud years ago and KENSO wants to do it again so he came to the show to find Takagi. He was told he was at the wrong show but Takagi would be at DDT in Korakuen Hall on Sunday. KENSO said he will go there and then left.
