DDT “#OHKAEMPIRE BOX OFFICE ~MUSCLE MATES 2015~”, 17/11/2015
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
1. HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka Vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & Yohei Komatsu
This is the only match advertised for tomorrow’s #OhkaEmpire show in Korakuen Hall, which is sold out. The DDT website says there will be other matches on the card but we will not find out what they are until they happen. Given that the show is being run by Ken Ohka, Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine the card format might end up being similar to the old Muscle sub-brand. In fact, old Muscle shirts will be sold at the merchandise stand. So there may be a lot more than just wrestling matches to look forward to.
This is HARASHIMA’s chance at redemption against Hiroshi Tanahashi. Their match at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015” back in August created friction between the two when Tanahashi afterwards criticised HARASHIMA for not stepping up to his level and also expecting to be treated as his equal. Ken Ohka stepped in to help HARASHIMA defend his and also DDT’s honour by doing everything he could to set up this match.
