Then we get two special pairings. HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka are looking to continue their momentum from beating Hiroshi Tanahashi. Standing in their way are the big lads, Yuji Okabayashi & Shigehiro Irie. One half of the previous champions Daisuke Sasaki has been excluded from the tournament because his current partner Suguru Miyatake has not been good enough to earn a spot.

Rekka is from New Taiwan Entertainment Wrestling Federation. He joins a special team made up of a Japanese, an American and a Taiwanese. Konosuke Takeshita is the Japanese wrestler and Hiroshi Fukuda is the American.

DDT “SUPER STAR LANES 2015”, 13/12/2015
Hakata Star Lane

1. Hakata Specialty Mixed Unit Special Tag: HARASHIMA & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Shigehiro Irie & Konosuke Takeshita
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata (c) Vs Danshoku Dino, Super Sasadango Machine & Batten X Burabura
3. DDT Extreme Title Next Challenger Final: Antonio Honda Vs Akito
4. KO-D Openweight Title: Isami Kodaka (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

Tetusya Endo feels that his non-title victory over Isami Kodaka on yesterday’s BOYZ show is proof that he deserves his title shot and did not just get it because of a fluke Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament.

Both Antonio Honda and Akito are claiming the No. 1 Contendership for the DDT Extreme Title. The championship is very important to Akito and hates how Kendo Kashin treated the belt when he won it. Honda wants another shot at Kashin and his unusual match stipulations.

Yusuke Kubo has been added to the show.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sasaki
2. Ultra Heroes EXPO Collaboration Match: X Vs X

4. KO-D Tag Team Titles Tournament – Final: Winners Of 6/12 Qualifier Vs Winners of 12/12 Qualifier

The Ultra Heroes EXPO match is Ultraman related. Maybe this is Ultraman Robin’s return to DDT?

BOYZ “ULTRA ~ONCE IN A LIFETIME WOMAN FESTIVAL~”, 29/11/2015
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
769 Fans

1. Kazuki Hirata & Shigehiro Irie defeated Soma Takao & Kouki Iwasaki when Hirata pinned Iwasaki with a Mad Splash (9:41).
2. BOYZ-gun Vs GuyZ-gun: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase defeated Joey Ryan, Hiroshi Fukuda & Super Ikemen Higuchi (w/ Brother Tommy & Shigehiro Irie) when Oishi pinned Fukuda with the Jikiden Tornado Clutch (8:37).

Doctors was the theme of the show. Everyone wore a long white coat and glasses during the opening speeches. The show ended with a photo shoot and dance number. The 769 fans in attendence were all women.

The main event was a preview of next month’s KO-D Openweight Title match. In an upset, the new champion Isami Kodaka was pinned by Tetsuya Endo. Kodaka was in control for most of the match but Endo ducked the Isamuashi Zan and rolled him over for the surprise three count. Even though the title was not at stake, Endo was more than happy with the win.

Mao Inoue missed the show after he injured his jaw at “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2015” the day before. He was supposed to be part of the BOYZ team for their 8-Man Tag match against GuyZ. To make the match even Shigehiro Irie was removed and it became a 6-Man Tag instead. Kazusada Higuchi was turned into a Super Ikemen to mock the BOYZ concept. BOYZ came out the victor but the GuyZ team promised they would return on 1st March.

osaka-octopus-2015

The attendance for this show is pretty disappointing given as it was DDT’s first time in the main Osaka Edion Arena and their 3rd biggest show of the year. Until now they only booked the building’s #2 Gym. However Sanshiro Takagi said DDT will book the arena again next year. He wants to boost their following in Osaka and the Kansai region to be on the same level as Tokyo.

kodaka-sakaguchi

In one last tribute to Union Pro Wrestling, its ace is now the champion of DDT! Isami Kodaka outfought Yukio Sakaguchi in the main event to win the KO-D Openweight Championship. Kodaka was introduced as a Union wrestler while Sakaguchi entered the arena accompanied by the rest of Shuten-dōji including the injured KUDO. Sakaguchi went for a Triangle Choke early but Kodaka countered it into a Power Bomb. Sakaguchi came back with numerous kicks but Kodaka urged him to keep them coming. Eventually Kodaka goaded Sakaguchi into an Octopus Hold. It wasn’t enough and soon Kodaka was given several Knee Strikes including one to the back after Kodaka missed his Isamuashi Zan finisher. Sakaguchi went for the Right Knee Of God but this time Kodaka hit the Isamuashi Zan to counter it. Another Right Knee Of God found its target but wasn’t enough. Kodaka was able to hit one more Isamuashi Zan and got the three count. When Kodaka was given the belt he told Sakaguchi he was open for one more match. In his victory speech he talked about seeing DDT when he was 20 years old but he did not know how to join their school so he went to K-DOJO when he found out they were taking applications. He brought up the upcoming launch of Pro Wrestling BASARA and then called out his first challenger Tetsuya Endo. He challenged him to a quick Rock-Paper-Scissors game but lost. Endo said that game is what got him the title shot but he is now flowing with ability. His chest is filled with pride for DDT so he must win the title for them.

harashima-takeshita

The atmosphere was tense inside the ring when HARASHIMA and Konosuke Takeshita fought. It took two attempts of the Swan Dive Somato for HARASHIMA to win. Takeshita threw everything he could at him but it was no good. Takeshita was depressed afterwards, only saying “…Useless. No good. No good” in the post-match interview. Ken Ohka crashed HARASHIMA’s interview to ask if they could enter next month’s tournament for the vacant KO-D Tag Team Titles. Ohka told him the team that beat New Japan and Hiroshi Tanahashi should strike while the iron is hot. HARASHIMA accepted when Ohka told him how much the fans want to see it.

okabayashi-irie

In the Battle Of The Big Lads Shigehiro Irie fell to the Big Japan Golem Yuji Okabayashi. There were Lariats and Headbutts aplenty but Okabayashi came out on top with the Golem Splash. He appealed for another match afterwards saying that they are in sync with each other and he would fight him any number of times. He also teased the idea of them teaming up and entering the upcoming KO-D Tag Team Titles tournament. Irie likes the idea but wants to know what his friends Keisuke Ishii and Soma Takao want to do before he makes the decision.

dino-curry

The Brahman Brothers attacked Saki Akai with an octopus before their entrance for Match #6. Late in the match they put a plate of curry onto a chair in the middle of the ring. The plan backfired when Hiroshi Fukuda gave Danshoku Dino an Atomic Drop onto the chair. Dino’s backside landed on the curry. Brahman Shu was able to pin Fukuda but Dino didn’t feel like a winner after that. Akai got her revenge on the Brahmans when she attacked them with the octopus backstage at the end of the show.

kashin-honda

Kendo Kashin had an odd array of temporary body tattoos including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics logo and a picture of Antonio Honda’s actor brother Eiichiro Honda. UWF Rules were in place with pinfalls and countouts included. When Honda was about to do the Diving Fist Drop, Kashin grabbed Yukinori Matsui by the legs and used the distraction to do an Avalanche Cross Armbreaker. Kashin lock Honda in an Inside Cradle and that was enough for the title change. Kashin stomped on the DDT Extreme Title belt after the match causing an angry Akito to confront him in the ring. Kashin offered Akito the belt but then kicked him in the stomach. The new champ is already thinking up rules for his first defence. Maybe amateur wrestling but with three count pinfalls?

hardcore6way-octopus

Each participant in the Hardcore 6 Way match brought a weapon with them to the ring. Among them Sanshiro Takagi brought along an electric fan and the Combat Bicycle, Daisuke Sasaki brought down an unwilling Suguru Miyatake and Yuko Miyamoto carried a locker into the ring. Takagi stuck Kazusada Higuchi’s hand into the fan, he also stuck KENSO into the locker and Dropkicked it. Higuchi got revenge on Takagi by Choke Slamming him onto the locker with KENSO still in it. Sasaki hit Higuchi with trash can lids until he fell on top of a table. Sasaki then climbed a giant ladder and hit the Diving Elbow Drop through the table to get the win.

sakiakai-ironman

An unmasked Kikutaro disguised himself as a TV reporter to ambush Cherry before the Battle Royal. As he interviewed her about the match Kikutaro lifted up a metal basin and dropped it over her head. She was stunned long enough to be pinned, marking the first of many Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes throughout the match. In the ring Kikutaro tried to get his hands on Saki Akai but Yukinori Matsui came to the rescue and gave him a German Suplex. Shunma Katsumata capitalised and pinned Kikutaro to eliminate him and become the champion. Kikutaro was later found in the locker room knocked out and naked. Kazuki Hirata then entered the match wearing Kikutaro’s clothes. Gota Ihashi’s tights became a two time champion and Cherry won back the title but in the end Saki Akai came out victorious. After almost a year of trying to win and keep the belt, Akai pinned Cherry to win the match and become champion. She spoke about getting to compete in the same arena her father did when he was a boxer and getting to do something he couldn’t, win a championship.

watase-hurricanemixer

In an act of psychological warfare, Super Sasadango Machine wanted to divide RG & Ryota Yamazato. Literally. He did this by wearing Buffaloman horns and then charging them so he could do the Hurricane Mixer. They both dodged it but unfortunately for their fellow comedian wrestler Mizuki Watase, he was hit. The move smashed Watase into six different pieces and it was up to the comedians to put Watase back together in less than ten minutes to revive him. They succeeded but Watase was furious to be left in harm’s way. He attacked his friends but they fought him off. Everybody calmed down and made up afterwards by singing songs.

akito-hanamasa

Akito debuted his new finisher called the Hanamasa. It is the same move as YAMATO’s Gallaria. Mao Inoue injured his jaw during the opening match.

dark-octopus

Right before the pre-show began Tomomitsu Matsunaga told Kouki Iwasaki to focus on Dai Suzuki if he wanted to get rid of the King Of Dark Title. Matsunaga was proven right that Suzuki was the weakest in the match when he pinned him. However since Iwasaki was not involved in the result he is still the “Misfortune Champion”.

KUDO appeared at the beginning of the show to announce he is going into surgery to repair his right ACL on 2nd December. He aims to come back next summer.

Joey Ryan will be back in January and he’s bringing a friend with him. DDT’s going to get a whole lot cuter because Candice LeRae will make her DDT debut on the 3/1 Korakuen Hall show! She will also be at the 10th and 11th January shows in Osaka.

BOYZ will hold its first show in Osaka on 6th March, 2016.

TAVERN WRESTLING “~NO ALCOHOL NO LIFE~”, 25/11/2015
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
307 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Carlos Nakatsu & Mammoth Higuchi defeated Mendoza Toba & Danbira Sekine when Higuchi pinned Toba with the Goten (R3 0:43).
2. Tokyo Joshi Pro Offer Match: Miyu Yamashita & Erin defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Rika Tatsumi when Yamashita pinned Tatsumi with the Crash Rabbit Heat (7:35).

5. Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo defeated Abdullah Kobayashi & Takayuki Ueki when Endo pinned Ueki with the Torture Rack Bomb (13:40).

The foreign sports entertainment invasion cannot be stopped, in fact they had someone on the inside all along. Isami Kodaka was taken out of action at the beginning of the show when he was ambushed by Mankind-ish and left unconscious by the Mandible Claw. Luckily KI Punk was in the area and stepped in to replace Kodaka. Nerima Sting & “Hollywood” Hanolek Hogaso appeared wearing Nerima World Order T-shirts and brawled with their opponents. Punk almost submitted Sting with the Devil Lock but Hogaso pulled Daisuke Kiso out of the ring and knocked him out. All Hell broke loose when Mankind-ish returned. But Tazz-ish (Kouki Iwasaki) came out and stopped him with the Tazzmission. Kodaka was put through a world of hurt when he was given the Scorpion Death Drop, Leg Drop and Scorpion Deathlock in quick succession. He tapped out but the referee was still knocked out. Punk hit Sting with the GTS and went for the pin but Fukuda suddenly turned on him and attacked him with a baseball bat! Kiso woke up and called for a no contest. Fukuda joined the nWo but their celebration was interrupted by The Rock-ish (Kazusada Higuchi) and Stone Cold Steve Austin-ish (Ryuichi Sekine). They chased away the nWo and shared a beer with Punk. Austin-ish then gave Punk a Stunner.

*Toyohashi now belongs to the United States.
7. Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi defeated Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao when Sakaguchi pinned Takao with the Right Knee Of God (12:18).

Shigehiro Irie arrived at the show after appearing in All Japan for the first day of its World’s Strongest Tag League. He was still wearing the opening ceremony sash when he entered the ring.

Joey Ryan gave Danshoku Dino a lollipop before their match. Ryan said he respects Dino, he is his dream opponent and he hopes they can become friends. Dino turned down the lollipop and said he wanted chocolate. He also said Toyohashi is a Gay Town that the United States is trying to occupy so this match will determine its fate. Ryan pinned Makoto Oishi to win the match and claim Toyohashi for America. Dino told Ryan that next week in Osaka he will be facing the Brahman Brothers and he better be prepared. He warned that Japanese horror is very different to American horror. Ryan was left wondering why Dino is angry at him.

The 4 Way Match was turned into a Table Crash match. Kazusada Higuchi won in dominant fashion by Power Bombing Daisuke Sasaki onto Sanshiro Takagi through the table. A chair castle was built in the ring before the match begun. Higuchi threw Takagi into it while Sasaki and Ken Ohka brawled up to the second floor balcony.

0. King Of Dark Title – 3 Way Match: Hiroshi Fukuda defeated Kouki Iwasaki (c) and Suguru Miyatake when Fukuda pinned Iwasaki with a School Boy (5:10).
*D3 for Kouki Iwasaki.
1. Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao defeated Masa Takanashi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Irie pinned Matsunaga with the Flying Sausage (6:54).

3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Ken Ohka, Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine (c) when Hirata pinned Dino with the One Shot Miracle Cradle (12:58).

5. Tetsuya Endo defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Sky Twister Press (13:47).
6. Hiroshima Specialty! Deadly Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Akito Vs Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kazusada Higuchi ended in a Time Limit Draw (30:00).
7. Yukio Sakaguchi & Kota Umeda defeated Isami Kodaka & Ryota Nakatsu when Sakaguchi pinned Nakatsu with the Right Knee Of God (15:07).

Yukio Sakaguchi says he is in the middle of perfecting his Right Knee Of God finisher. Looks like it will reach perfect status by the time “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2015” takes place.

A rare 30 minute draw was the highlight of the show. Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kazusada Higuchi was a pairing that worked in DNA and they felt they were the better team than HARASHIMA & Akito. The time expired right when Higuchi Choke Slammed Akito while Nakajima took care of HARASHIMA. They said they would have won for sure if there was five seconds left. Higuchi also wants to team with Nakajima in DDT again and aim for the vacant KO-D Tag Team Titles.

It’s now full sail ahead for Tetusya Endo after he beat Keisuke Ishii. Endo hit the Torture Rack Bomb for a two count but immediately followed up with the Sky Twister Press to earn the victory. Endo said power was a major weapon for him in this match but he might need something else to beat either Sakaguchi or Isami Kodaka at next month’s KO-D Title match.

Daisuke Sasaki celebrated his 30th birthday with a special Hardcore Match against Yuko Miyamoto. Sasaki had Suguru Miyatake in his corner but he was taken out with the Fire Thunder Driver. Miyamoto used a megaphone to call in Hiroshi Fukuda with a birthday cake. They sang Happy Birthday to Sasaki then Miyamoto smushed the cake into Sasaki’s face. Miyamoto later used rope leverage to get the three count on Sasaki.

Kazuki Hirata’s GO! Glasses went missing before the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match. Without them he struggled to find the enthusiasm to dance. Instead he focused on the task at hand and did quite well in the match. Super Sasadango Machine stopped him in his tracks by pulling out his missing glasses. He placed them down for Hirata to take it but Hirata refused, saying he does not need to rely on them anymore. Danshoku Dino took them instead and began dancing and fighting to the music. However Hirata was able to avoid the Lip Lock and pin Dino out of nowhere to make T2Hide the new champions! #OhkaEmpire demanded a rematch and it will take place in Hakata on 13th December.

In the King Of Dark Title match, Hiroshi Fukuda distracted Kouki Iwasaki by singing “Imagine”. Suguru Miyatake tried to get involved but ended up bumping into Iwasaki. Fukuda took advantage and pinned Iwasaki with a School Boy. Iwasaki dropped his shoulders in disappointment when it was confirmed he will be wrestling in the dark match at “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2015”.
