Before the can fight for the All Asia Tag Team Titles next week, Danshoku Dino and Makoto Oishi had to fight each other. Dino wanted the match to happen because it would help them discover each other’s feelings. Oishi objected to the match and said he loves Dino but Dino pushed him away. When the match took place Dino came out on top. Oishi took the loss badly and said he was useless. Dino cheered him up and got him ready to win the All Asia Titles!
Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi are both ready for King Of DDT. Sakaguchi has won and lost one singles match against Shigehiro Irie so he sees tomorrow’s 1st Round bout as the rubber match. Irie admitted it’s scary when he sees Sakaguchi’s knee coming straight for his face but he will meet the challenge head on so he can win the tournament.
Shunma Katsumata takes the last spot in King Of DDT. Kazuki Hirata approached him after the match first to congratulate him then to warn that he wasn’t going to take it easy. Hirata was icing his shoulder while he was in the ring but promised he would be healed in time for the 1st Round.
With Team Drift now a thing of the past Keisuke Ishii and Soma Takao find themselves on opposite sides. First it was for this opening match and next will be a 1st Round match up in King Of DDT.
