There is a lot to talk about concerning the KO-D Openweight Title after today’s show. Konosuke Takeshita went into his title defence against Yuko Miyamoto with only Antonio Honda in his corner. His usual tag partner Tetsuya Endo was absent from ringside after he earlier won a Right To Challenge Contract. Miyamoto handed in his own RTC contract to officially begin the title match. Miyamoto locked in the Manji Cobra and also hit the Fire Thunder and Moonsault but none of those moves could win him the match. Takeshita countered La Magistral Cradle into a Roll Through German Suplex to mark a successful defence.
Takeshita said he enjoyed wrestling Miyamoto and a win over him increases the value of the KO-D Title. He would be happy to wrestle him again numerous times. But now it was time to look to the future. He thought his next title defence will be at Sumo Hall this August. However Endo finally reappeared with his newly won RTC contract. He told “Bamboo-chan” that for two months he’s been happy to see his friend as the KO-D Champion. But from the bottom of his heart it has also been frustrating because he also wants to be the champion! Endo is using his contract for a title match in Korakuen Hall on 17th July! He said he was never able to surpass Takeshita until now. The atmosphere became so tense that Antonio Honda had to come in and strip down to his underwear to end the show on a lighter note.
Daisuke Sasaki revealed the official name for his unit at the start of the show. He and his pets Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie are now DAMNATION. Sasaki came up with the name when he asked his English teacher the meaning of that word. He was told it is “the state of being in Hell as punishment after death.” For their first act they threatened to make an example out of Amon Tsurumi. Luckily for the GM, Ken Ohka ran out to save him. He said he didn’t care about “Dumb Nation” and when KAI gets here they would take the KO-D Tag Team Titles from them.
KAI did show up and they surprised everyone by becoming the new champions! KAI rolled off of Ishikawa to avoid the Doomsday Device then he and Ohka hit a Double Spear of Flame to both Sasaki & Ishikawa. KAI got the three count with the Splash Plancha. Both KAI & Ohka were reduced to tears as they were presented with the belts. Amon Tsurumi told them they will have to defend the belts at “PETER PAN 2016” on 28th August. KAI said he’s already booked that day. He then got confused and said his scheduled booking is for that very show. Tsurumi asked if he can do the title defence. KAI said no, then yes. Ohka said ever since he and KAI teamed together for the first time, a deep bond grew between them.
Endo won his RTC contract in a 4 Way Elimination Match, eliminating the previous holder Kazusada Higuchi to win the bout. Mad Paulie and Keisuke Ishii were also in the match with Paulie eliminating Ishii first. Higuchi was planning to declare himself the next KO-D challenger if he had won the match and kept the contract.
“Insane In The Membrane” was played through the DDT music system for the first time in five years to mark the return of Dick Togo! This was his first match in Japan since his retirement although he had continued to wrestle part-time in South America. With Honda on his side they were able to beat Yasu Urano & Guanchulo with Togo scoring the pin. Togo said this was the best comeback he could hope for, wrestling with his former students Honda, Urano and Guanchulo. Although he felt like he was wrestling five years slower he thinks it will only take two or three more matches to regain his condition. He now looks forward to wrestling Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki on 17th July. He is determined not to lose to those rookies.
The makeshift team of HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Azul Dragon were too much for Shuten-dōji to handle. HARASHIMA countered Masa Takanashi’s Takatonic into a Buzzsaw Kick then finished him off with what else? The Somato.
Miyu Yamashita was happy with how her homecoming match turned out. She now wants Tokyo Joshi Pro to run a show in Hakata Star Lane.
The DDT Extreme Title was on the line in a passionate Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Death Match. LiLiCo put the title on the line against Makoto Oishi and both of them had their partners stand in opposite corners of the ring. They had to kiss their partner for five seconds to win the match. Easy for LiLiCo because she was with her boyfriend Mizuki Watase. Not so easy for Oishi because his designated partner was Batten Burabura. Oishi took one for the team and tried to kiss Burabura when he could. At one point the referee was knocked out so Oishi’s long kiss didn’t count for ages. Watase then pulled the referee out of the ring before he counted to 5. He aided LiLiCo in Power Bombing Oishi. The champion then locked in the Manjigatame on Oishi while deeply kissing Watase long enough to win the match.
Amon Tsurumi congratulated LiLiCo for the victory and described her kisses like they were from a movie. He told her Danshoku Dino was now the No. 1 Contender for the title and the match will be at “PETER PAN 2016”. Dino came out and called LiLiCo’s relationship with Watase a publicity stunt. He wants Watase to be with him, not LiLiCo! Dino requested his match with LiLiCo to be a Watase Contra Watase match. The winner gets both the DDT Extreme Title and Mizuki Watase! The loser will be prohibited from even laying a finger on Watase ever again.
In the opening match Danshoku Dino used Kazuki Hirata’s dancing powers against him, kissing him multiple times in tune to the “Go! Go! Go! Go!” parts of his music. Hirata was helpless when Dino gave him the Danshoku Driver.
Maki Itoh from the idol group LinQ appeared with Miyu Yamashita after the intermission. She announced her intentions to wrestle for Tokyo Joshi Pro this year. Itoh has wrestled before in DDT and wanted an opportunity to become a proper pro wrestler. After discussions between her agency and Sanshiro Takagi she is allowed to train in Tokyo Joshi. She is a fan of Nonoko and eventually wants to wrestle like Cutie Suzuki.
