DDT ventured into KBS Hall for the first time in five years. The last show is remembered for the “Zundoko Bus Incident” where the tour bus broke down on the Tomei Expressway as it was driving to the venue. The bus broke down again on the way home after the show. This show was also a homecoming for Saki Akai. She got to be in the main event with Shuten-dōji against Cherry & Happy Motels. Cherry wasn’t happy that Akai was getting all of the attention because today was also Cherry’s 42nd birthday! Akai started off the match with Antonio Honda who could not hold back his excitement when they locked up. When they broke apart Honda said Akai smelt good. Honda kept trying to smell Akai’s hair when they were in the ring together. Akai fought out of Honda’s perverted attacks and was left to go against Cherry while their partners fought each other outside the ring. Akai rolled away from the Cherryton Bomb and got the win when she hit Cherry with a Diving Cross Body followed by the Rookie Award kick.
In the final skirmish before their KO-D Tag Team Title Match, Akito & Yasu Urano got the win over Daisuke Sasaki and his pet Mad Polly. The match went wrong for Sasaki when Polly accidentally hit him with a Hammer Punch. Urano then rolled up Polly for the three count. Sasaki pressed his tag title belt against Urano’s head during their staredown after the match.
A castle of chairs was constructed for the Heian-kyō Tag Death Match. Sanshiro Takagi said the chiar castle represented Kiyomizu-dera, a temple found in Kyoto. The temple collapsed when Kazuki Hirata was thrown into it but he soon emerged from the rubble wearing his HIRATA GO! glasses. He struck Danshoku Dino in the ass with a chair during his dance and then pinned Makoto Oishi with the Viagra Driver.
