7. KO-D Openweight Title Next Challenger Final: HARASHIMA defeated Shigehiro Irie with the Somato (19:52).


The main event for DDT’s 19th Anniversary show in Sumo Hall is now official. HARASHIMA won the right to challenge Isami Kodaka for the KO-D Openweight Title on 21st March. He had to go through the difficult task of beating Shigehiro Irie to earn his title shot. Kodaka watched the match from ringside. The first sign of the match going in HARASHIMA’s favour was when he dodged a charging Irie outside the ring and Irie ran abdomen first into an iron fence. HARASHIMA targeted Irie’s abdomen until he was hit with a Lariat and the Teddy Bear. A Black Hole Slam, the Flying Sausage and the Beast Bomber only got Irie a two count. HARASHIMA avoided the Vertial Drop Back Flip, hit some Jumping High Kicks and the Reverse Frankensteiner. He hit the Somato but Irie kicked out! HARASHIMA then pulled out his rarely used Firebird Splash but Irie also kicked out of that! Irie blocked another Somato and turned HARASHIMA upside down for the Drill-A-Hole Piledriver. He hit another big Beast Bomber but HARASHIMA would not stay down for the three count. There was a strike exchange with Irie doing a Headbutt but HARASHIMA then stunned him with a High Kick. He then did a Canadian Destroyer but that was yet another nearfall. HARASHIMA followed up with a Buzzsaw Kick but Irie caught his foot. HARASHIMA surprised Irie with a short range Somato from that position and then hit a proper Somato one more time. That was enough to keep Irie down for the count. HARASHIMA thanked Irie for the match and said this was the strongest Irie has ever been. He wants to fight him again and again and again. Kodaka was then brought into the ring to say some words about the Sumo Hall main event. He wasn’t in the mood to start any arguements. He is confident in his ability to defend the title. He shook hands with HARASHIMA but HARASHIMA started pushing Kodaka’s hand down as if they were arm wrestling. Kodaka kicked him away and left the ring.


Tetsuya Endo wasted no time going after Shuji Ishikawa. After attacking him right away he tried to set up the Sky Twister Press but Ishikawa rolled out of the ring. Endo brawled with Shuji up to the north side of Korakuen Hall where Endo was Body Slammed onto some chairs. He just about got back into the ring before the 20 count. Ishikawa was in control until Endo hit a Missile Dropkick. However Ishikawa was too heavy for the Torture Rack Bomb. Endo escaped the Splash Mountain and kicked out of the Running Knee Lift but his momentum was stopped with the Fire Thunder. He still had life in him and he kicked kept kicking out of Ishikawa’s signature moves until the Splash Mountain put him away for good. Daisuke Sasaki attached a leash to Ishikawa after the match and said he and his pet “Adrian” will win the KO-D Tag Team Titles at Sumo Hall.


The DDT Extreme Title was defended in a normal one on one match with an extra wrestler involved. Totally not a Triple Threat Match. The champion Kendo Kashin entered with a body paint image of politician Kensuke Miyazaki. Yoshihiko was accompanied by his elder brother Muscle Sakai who was wearing an all black bodysuit. Sakai stood by Yoshihiko for the entire match to aid him with his moves. Kashin and Antonio Honda ignored them to brawl with each other around ringside. Kashin knocked out the referee and grabbed a chair. He attacked Honda and Sakai with the chair and then played dead. Yukinori Matsui woke up and saw Yoshihiko on the chair surrounded by unconscious bodies. He called a foul on Yoshihiko. Kashin used the distraction to sneak behind Yoshihiko and pin it but Honda stopped the count. Honda gave Kashin a Scorpion Death Drop and then hit the Diving Fist Drop on Yoshihiko. Yoshihiko recovered and Dropkicked Honda out of the ring with Sakai’s help. They went over to Kashin but it was a trap! Kashin locked them into a Cross Armbreaker and both Yoshihiko and Sakai tapped out! After the match Honda asked Kashin for one more title match. Kashin assured Honda that he will get what he wants and nominated… Super Sasadango Machine! Suddenly Sakai was gone and Sasadango appeared to accept the match!


The Zeyyari Isami Kodaka used to pin Akito is a Running Knee Kick to the side of the head. Kodaka said he will continue to defend the KO-D Title once he beats the next guy DDT throws at him. Ryuichi Sekine asked if he could get a title shot. Kodaka said yes. Ryota Nakatsu told them they could do the match in BASARA. Amon Tsurumi told them the next challenger will be determined at Sumo Hall in the Right To Anywhere Rumble match. Sekine & Nakatsu demanded to enter the match. They agreed with Tsurumi to take themselves out of the BASARA offer match so they can be in the Rumble.


Daisuke Sasaki became grumpy when he was told at the start of the show his match with Konosuke Takeshita would not be for the MAX Lucha Libre Maximo Title. It didn’t matter because Sasaki stunned Takeshita by quickly pinning him with a flash Hurricanrana. However the result came from a dirty gameplan. Sasaki escaped the ring and attacked Hiroshi Fukuda at ringside, prompting Takeshita to chase him. Takeshita caught up and hit Sasaki with a Lariat but was pinned out of nowhere by the Hurricanrana afterwards.


LiLiCo appeared after Match #2 with Suguru Miyatake by her side. Makoto Oishi asked her who she is teaming with to take on the Kawaii Connection at Sumo Hall. LiLiCo said Miyatake was supposed to be one of her partners but he is injured. Instead she found two other ikemen she fancies, Kota Umeda & Mizuki Watase! The two entered the ring and were presented to LiLiCo. She looked at them approvingly and called both of them delicious. Akai said it doesn’t matter who the old hag teams with, she’ll win back the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. The two grabbed each other and had to be pulled apart.


Danshoku Dino’s current goal is to collect other wrestlers’ asses. Doing so will prepare him for his match with Akebono in Sumo Hall next month. Saki Akai was worried Dino would target her ass but he wasn’t interested for obvious reasons. Super Sasadango Machine had his mask twisted around after he was thrown into Dino’s Hell Gate. A blinded Sasadango gave Dino the Lehmann Shock and Oishi capitalised to grab the win for himself and Akai.


Before the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title match began Kazuki Hirata took the time to ask the DNA team if they did enough training. He then mockingly wished them luck. The DNA team wasted no time in targeting Hirata. The champions gained control and Hirata looked to pin Kouki Iwasaki for the third time in a month. He caught Iwasaki in the Miracle One Shot Cradle but this time Iwasaki blocked it and cradled Hirata for the surprise three count. Shunma Katsumata credited Iwasaki’s luck for winning them the titles. Kazusada Higuchi was proud to be part of the first DNA wrestlers to win a championship.


Amon Tsurumi had to explain the King Of Dark Title to Guanchulo when he became the new champion. He wasn’t happy to learn he is being demoted to dark matches.


The show ended with Sanshiro Takagi bringing the roster into the ring for one last speech in Korakuen before they go to Sumo Hall. He spoke about DDT running inside Saitama Super Arena this time last year. He then brought up DDT running Sumo Hall twice this year. It is a big step for DDT and everyone will make sure it will be successful. The entire roster formed a circle inside the ring and all yelled “Ryogoku Gonna Be Full House! Ooh!” as the show ended.

Antonio Honda & Hiroshi Fukuda Vs Tatsumi Fujinami & LEONA was announced for the 21/3 Sumo Hall show!

DDT is currently looking for companies to sponsor their shows in Korakuen Hall. The first sponsored show will be “BLACKOUT PRESENTS KING OF DDT 2016 TOKYO” on 28th June. BLACKOUT is an energy drink DDT has promoted in the past on their “SAITAMA SLAM” shows.

The Ring☆Dream characters for Sanshiro Takagi, Danshoku Dino and KUDO will soon be voiced in the web browser game.

Yokohama Radiant Hall
243 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Kazuaki Mihara, Koji Iwamoto & Gurukun Mask defeated Daichi Kazato, Hi69 & Kazuhiro Tamura when Mihara submitted Kazato with a Camel Clutch (13:53).
2. 3 Way Match: Ryu Gouma defeated Atsushi Maruyama and Rekka when Gouma pinned Maruyama with a Reverse-Style Splash (7:31).
3. FUMA & Madoka defeated Hiroshi Fukuda & SAGAT when FUMA pinned SAGAT with the HEAVY METAL ANTHEM (11:00).
4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shiori Asahi (c) defeated Yusuke Kubo with the Aun (15:28).
*V4 for Shiori Asahi.
5. Hercules Senga & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Senga pinned Nakatsu after the PICTURES (13:58).
6. Isami Kodaka defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Isamuashi Zan (16:57).

During the main event both Isami Kodaka and Takumi Tsukamoto threatened to use their weapons on each other. After an early lock up Tsukamoto went out of the ring and grabbed his massive hammer. Kodaka then grabbed his samurai sword. Kyohei Wada had to tell both of them to drop their weapons and apologise to each other. Tsukamoto later used his hammer to whack Kodaka in mid-air during a Tope Suicida spot. Tsukamoto apologised to Wada afterward. Kodaka avoided the Drake Driver and felled Tsukamoto with Knee Strikes and the Isamuashi Zan. The two wrestlers paid each other compliments after the match and Kodaka was ready to close the show when Hiroshi Fukuda and SAGAT interrupted him. With Fukuda speaking on his behalf, SAGAT challenged Kodaka to a match on 13th March. Kodaka accepted.

Cavalry lost to Speed Of Sounds in the semi-main event but were quick to ask for a rematch. It was refused with SOS citing that their enthusiasm isn’t enough to convince them. Instead two single matches were booked for 3rd March: Ryota Nakatsu Vs Hercules Senga and Ryuichi Sekine Vs Tsutomu Oosugi. Unfortunately reports came out after the show that Senga injured his jaw during the match and could be out of action for a while.

When Yusuke Kubo failed to win the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title he was comforted by FUMA & Madoka. FUMA called him a true heavy metal samurai and asked him to join his heavy metal team. Kubo shook FUMA’s hand and grabbed a guitar. FUMA said a new metal warrior is now born and together they will take over BASARA! For the moment the group is called Kotetsu Gundan.

Fukuda isn’t a fan of FUMA’s heavy metal personality. Fukuda is more of a classic rock ‘n’ roll kind of guy. Same with SAGAT according to Fukuda. FUMA told them their long hair does not have to stop them from head banging. When FUMA went for his HEAVY METAL ANTHEM Diving Elbow Drop he yelled “I received a judgement from Lucifer!”

Fukuda & SAGAT Vs New Gen Combo and Kodaka Vs Akito were announced for the next Tavern Wrestling show held on 8th March.

Kota Ibushi’s return sees him added to the Falls Count Anywhere Match. This is the first time Ibushi will do such a match inside Sumo Hall. God only knows what ideas he’ll have in that environment.


1. Eating Log 4.25 Class Of Love Calls: Yumehito Imanari Vs Bambi
2. World’s Strongest Phantom Rumble ~Bracken Of The Living Dead~: J-Soul Pandita III IV Vs Dr. Kirico Vs Potato Head Sera Vs Hong Kong International Police Man Vs Hong Kong Domestic Police Man Vs Hong Kong International Women’s Police Man Vs Atsushi Maruyama Vs Choun-Shiryu
3. Ganpuro Vs Tomodachi-gun: Ken Ohka, Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Minoru Fujita, Madoka & Yukihiro Abe

If the Ganpuro team win the main event they get to take back Yukihiro Abe from Tomodachi-gun and rehabilitate him back to normal. Abe has been listening only to Minoru Fujita ever since he joined his group and Fujita tells him he can become stronger if he beats Ken Ohka.

The Phantom Rumble sounds like a nightmare in more ways than one.

Ibushi Announces Return, Creates Ibushi Wrestling Institute

February 22, 2016


A press conference was held inside DDT’s new Shinjuku office this morning and it was all about Kota Ibushi. He’s been away from the public eye ever since October when a suspected herniated cervical disc put him out of action. Barring a tweet here and there, things were quiet from his end until today. He was at the conference along with DDT President Sanshiro Takagi & GM Amon Tsurumi to make a few announcements. First Ibushi’s dual contract with DDT and New Japan Pro Wrestling has been cancelled. Ibushi’s injury turned out to be lumbar spondylolisthesis and he is on track to making a full recovery. He was given the OK by his doctor to return to pro wrestling but personally feels he has hit his physical limit. The schedule he had for the last two years working for two companies at the same time has taken its toll. He now thinks it is time for him to pursue a new kind of pro wrestling separate from either company. So he is now graduating from DDT and New Japan to launch the Ibushi Wrestling Institute. What that is exactly Ibushi hasn’t said but he will give us more details eventually. He is the only member of the Institute and he himself does not know if he will invite anyone else to join.

It looks like Ibushi will still wrestle for DDT and New Japan eventually but as a representative of Ibushi Wrestling Institute. NJPW President Naoki Sugibayashi released a statement saying he looks forward to working with Ibushi again in the future. Ibushi’s return match will take place at “JUDGEMENT 2016 ~DDT 19th ANNIVERSARY~” in Sumo Hall on 21st March. He and Gota Ihashi will be added to the Falls Count Anywhere Weapon Treasure Hunt Match turning it into a 3 Way Tag against Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai and KENSO & Michael Nakazawa. It will be the first time Ibushi will be in a Falls Count Anywhere Match at Sumo Hall. That and getting to wrestle both Takagi and Nakazawa again are why Ibushi was put into the match.

1. Fighting Flames War: Hayato Mashita defeated Shibata with the Muso (4:58).
2. Grudge Panda: Dr. Kirico (Chikara) defeated J-Soul Pandita III IV with the Saber Chop (3:31).
3. Suites In A Cell 3 Way Match ~Imanari And The Chocolate Factory~: Bambi (Whip) defeated Yumehito Imanari (Candy) and Manami Kanda (Bamboo Sword) when Bambi pinned Imanari with the Standing Shining Wizard (11:27).
4. Wrestle Counselling: GENTARO defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Sharpshooter (16:57).
5. Ganpuro-gun Vs Tomodachi-gun ~Declaration Of War~: Ken Ohka, Shuichiro Katsumura & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Minoru Fujita, Madoka & Yukihiro Abe when Ohka pinned Abe with the Spear Of Flame (20:51).

The two teams in the main event continued brawling after it ended. When the two sides were separated there was a heated argument between Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita. Ohka threw out a challenge for 29th March: Himself, Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga against three members of Tomodachi-gun. If Ohka’s team wins they get to rehabilitate Yukihiro Abe back to normal. Fujita whispered into Abe’s ear that he can become stronger if he beats Ohka. He then asked Ohka if one of his partners could be a beautiful joshi. Ohka accepted. Fujita then for some reason asked if he can vacate one of his chosen partners. Ohka also accepted. Fujita complained about the room smelling like candy and left with the rest of Tomodachi-gun.

The room smelt of candy because of Match #3. Yumehito Imanari covered the ring in potato chips and burst a bag of popcorn on Bambi’s head. He also interrupted the match to give chocolates to Manami Kanda as a late Valentine’s Day gift. Bambi attacked both of them and ate the remaining chocolate. Imanari later bribed Kanda with potato chips but didn’t pay attention to Bambi. He was pinned by Bambi with a Standing Shining Wizard. Kanda distracted herself by picking up pieces of candy from the canvas.

When Match #2 began Dr. Kirico immediately pulled out an injection to use on J-Soul Pandita III IV but the creature knocked it out of his hand. When Kirico began hitting Pandita with Saber Chops it was a clue as to who was under the mask. He unmasked and revealed himself to be Chikara! He then pinned Pandita with the Saber Chop. Chikara apologised to Pandita and then asked if it was a parent. Pandita is part of a wrestling family just like Chikara is so they should work hard together! That’s right, the grandson of Rikidozan just bonded with a panda over their families’ wrestling history.

150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. 3 Way Match: Yuu defeated Azusa Takigawa and Nodoka Onesan when Yuu submitted Takigawa with a Heel Hold and Nodoka with a Modified Armlock at the same time (4:12).
2. Poison Miura (w/ Poison Sawada JULIE) defeated Hyper Misao with a Rock Bottom (6:25).
3. Poison KANNA (w/ Poison Sawada JULIE) defeated Saki Akamiya with the Poison Serpent (8:14).
4. Nonoko, Ai Shimizu & Rika Tatsumi defeated Miyu Yamashita, Syoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki when Nonoko pinned Yamashita with the Pai Fly Flow (14:29).

Miyu Yamashita’s title reign is in peril when she was pinned by her upcoming challenger Nonoko in the main event. The size difference was too much for Yamashita to handle and she was literally bouncing off of Nonoko at one point. Nonoko countered the Crash Rabbit Heat with a Body Block called the K Cup Oppai Launch. Nonoko hit the Boinemaker and then the Pai Fly Flow to pick up the victory. Nonoko said 13th March will be a historic day for Tokyo Joshi Pro because that is when she will beat Yamashita for the Tokyo Princess Of Princess Title. From that day forth the legend of big breasted Nonoko the permanent champion will begin!

Poison Sawada JULIE went into the show swearing he will brainwash two people into joining Snake World Joshi. Saki Akamiya and Hyper Misao (now known as Sukeban-gun) were joined by Mitsuya Nagai for their matches. Nagai had been training both of them in preparation of the war with JULIE’s army. First up was Misao Vs Poison Miura. Misao tried her best but Miura overpowered her quite easily. Akamiya Vs Poison KANNA took place afterwards and this time the match was more in Sukeban-gun’s favour. Akamiya had KANNA beaten with the Two Stage Face Kick until the rattling sound of JULIE’s snake magic could be heard. Suddenly Nagai’s arm raised high and shook to the sound of the rattle. He was brainwashed! Nagai put Akamiya in a Choke Hold until KANNA recovered and hit the Poison Serpent for the three count. JULIE introduced everyone to Snake World’s newest member Mitsuya Hebigai! Now it was Akamiya’s turn to join. Sanshiro Takagi ran out for the rescue and used snake repel spray to run off JULIE and his cronies. JULIE threw out a challenge for 13th March for a final battle between Sukeban-gun and Snake Magic Joshi. It will be Akamiya & Misao with Takagi in their corner against Miura & KANNA with JULIE in their corner. However Takagi said he will be busy that day working at the annual Gorgeous Matsuno produced DDT event in Fukushima. Luckily he knows someone who can take his place, Tokyo Joshi’s GM Tetsuya Koda! Koda wasn’t sure of the decision and fretted that he was not a wrestler. Akamiya had to slap him across the face to calm him down.

258 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Atsushi Maruyama & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Daichi Kazato & Hi69 when Oosugi pinned Kazato with the Tsuki No Ishii (11:24).
2. Kikutaro defeated Ryu Gouma with a DDT (9:13).
3. Kazuaki Mihara & Koji Iwamoto defeated Hiroshi Fukuda & SAGAT when Mihara submitted SAGAT with a Camel Clutch (11:02).
4. HUB defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Deadly Poison HUB Air Strike (12:30).
5. FUMA & HAYATA defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Yusuke Kubo when FUMA pinned Kubo with the HEAVY METAL ANTHEM (17:11).
6. Isami Kodaka defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Isamuashi Zan (17:05).

It took a while for Isami Kodaka to say anything after his match with Ryuichi Sekine. Finally he said “Tough.” Sekine could only muster up enough energy to say thanks. Kodaka said BASARA is still small but it is quickly growing with a show in Osaka already under its belt. They will light a fire in Japan and they will do a rematch in Japan!

FUMA continues to preach about heavy metal. Why did his team win? Because they came out to “Painkiller” by Judas Priest. Why did he pin Yusuke Kubo? Because he has heavy metal in his soul and it makes him the best in head banging. He offered to help Kubo find his heavy metal self and join his heavy metal band like Madoka and HAYATA have. Kubo said that despite losing every match in BASARA so far he has been reborn. But he admits something is missing, his losses prove that. He has a match with Shiori Asahi coming up in March. Asahi is the current Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion so Kubo will challenge him for the belt! FUMA will keep an eye on that match,

Hiroshi Fukuda has learned how to sooth SAGAT’s violent behaviour enough for them to work as a team. He tried to translate his grunts for the audience. Apparently SAGAT thanked the fans for coming to the show but that’s all Fukuda could translate.

Ryu Gouma tried to get Kikutaro disqualified for using foul and abusive language. Kikutaro DDT’d him onto his statute book.
