Not long to go now until the DDT 19th Anniversary show in Sumo Hall. In their final skirmish HARASHIMA’s team got the better of Isami Kodaka and his BASARA friends. Kodaka was powerless to stop HARASHIMA from hitting the Somato on Ryota Nakatsu. HARASHIMA told the crowd that he is sure to win the KO-D Openweight Title from Kodaka and when he does he’ll bring it back to Kasukabe. Why? Because he trains!
Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa suffered their first defeat as a team and it was against one half of the KO-D Tag Team Champions. Konosuke Takeshita had Hiroshi Fukuda constantly singing him songs from his corner to motivate him while he was wrestling. Sasaki & Ishikawa attacked their opponents with a chair when the referee was knocked out but a mistimed Lariat saw Ishikawa deck his partner by accident. Takeshita quickly capitalised and pinned Sasaki with the German Suplex. Sasaki ordered Ishikawa to attack Takeshita with a chair but Tetsuya Endo suddenly appeared and gave Ishikawa a Swan Dive Elbow. Endo told the challengers that even though they beat himself and Takeshita in single matches, they won’t be able to beat them in a tag team match for the titles.
The Battle Royal came down to Kazuki Hirata and Ryuichi Sekine both wearing Hirata GO! glasses and dancing on the ring apron. When the dancing stopped Hirata Dropkicked Sekine to the floor. Hirata said his reward for winning should be entering last in the Right To Challenge Rumble at Sumo Hall. Amon Tsurumi warned that all of the Right To Challenge contracts could be taken by the time Hirata enters the match. Hirata agreed and then asked if he could enter at No. 1 instead. Tsurumi said that would put him in a big disadvantage. Hirata agreed but felt entering second or third would be half-hearted. Tsurumi accepted his request.
Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine spent some time building up their mystery partner for the show. They filmed their reveal next to the men’s restroom backstage. Suddenly Shuji Ishikawa walked out of the restroom but it wasn’t him. It was the man who walked out after him, referee Daisuke Kiso! He didn’t last long in the match and his limp body had to be carried away from ringside. Luckily Ken Ohka was in the building and he took Kiso’s place, reuniting #OhkaEmpire! Unfortunately it wasn’t enough and they took a loss. Dino looked concerned afterwards. His goal to collect asses for his match against Akebono is moving at a slow pace. Ohka encouraged him to hang in there. He then encouraged Sasadango to hang in there and win the DDT Extreme Title from Kendo Kashin. He then encouraged Antonio Honda to hang in there and prepare for Tatsumi Fujinami. He then encouraged Kouki Iwasaki to hang in there and do his best in the DNA Offer Match. He then encouraged himself to hang in there and win the Right To Challenge Rumble.
In a preview of the Weapon Treasure Hunt match at Sumo Hall, KENSO, Jun Kasai and Gota Ihashi faced off in a 3 Way Match. KENSO rejected Kasai’s request to team up on Ihashi. He also turned down a similar request from Ihashi. Ihashi took out 10,000 yen from his booth and offered it to Kasai so they could form an alliance. Kasai thought about it and said “Ikuzo brother!” The alliance didn’t work and KENSO quickly foiled their double team attempts. Ihashi soon got the better of KENSO but that was when Kasai decided to end the alliance and hit Ihashi with a Lariat. He then hit the Pearl Harbour Splash to win. Kasai said he is the real king of Street Wrestling, not that bastard Kota Ibushi.
Kota Umeda tried to make it to three victories in one day with his new Umeda Driver finisher. However Shigehiro Irie was too heavy and fought out of the move before pinning Umeda with the Beast Bomber.
Makoto Oishi and Saki Akai wound up Mizuki Watase in their match by asking if he was a transsexual.
Seiya Morohashi was accidentally flattened by Hoshitango’s Midnight Buenos Aires, allowing Guanchulo to roll him up for the win. There will be no more King Of Dark Title matches until Sumo Hall so Morohashi is stuck as the champion for the next couple of weeks. He kept on bothering Amon Tsurumi during the show to change his mind.
