Today’s show was in Toru Owashi’s home prefecture of Nagano. He was in charge of the show and wanted his match to be fought under Lucha Libre Rules. Danshoku Dino accepted but only on the condition that if his team wins then Nagano will be recognised as a Gay Town from now on. Dino’s team won when Kazusada Higuchi put on his own pair of Higuchi GO! glasses to combat Kazuki Hirata. Higuchi came out the victor and used the Doctor Bomb to pin Hirata. Higuchi was given 100 servings of baked goods for winning the match. Afterwards Sanshiro Takagi announced that DDT will hold a show in Owashi’s hometown of Saku City on 3rd November. Takagi has already invited Owashi’s mother to the show.
Owashi wasn’t the only Nagano local to wrestle on the show. Mizuki Watase was given 100 servings of buckwheat as a gift for his homecoming. Although he lost to HARASHIMA he was cheered by the fans after the match.
Hiroshi Fukuda sang “A Whole New World” to Shigehiro Irie to distract him and get on his good side. Fukuda then attacked Irie and held him back while Tetsuya Endo pinned Kouki Iwasaki. Endo said in an interview he is charging ahead to his King Of DDT match with Kazuki Hirata.
Soma Takao realises the big task ahead of him. He faces Shuji Ishikawa in the next King Of DDT round tomorrow. However he thinks he can surprise everyone and beat Ishikawa.
