NPO Kumamoto Wrestling, Big Japan and DDT got together for a special charity wrestling event held outside Sun Road New Town Arcade. Donations were collected for relief funds that will go to reconstruction efforts around the area.
Both teams in the main event were gifted with watermelons to encourage their match performances. The hometown hero Kota Umeda received a lot of streamers during his ring announcement. A lot of the match focused on him squaring up to all three of his opponents. However despite his efforts in trying to cut down Yuji Okabayashi with kicks, he was defeated with a Lariat and the Golem Splash. Okayabayshi told the crowd he was delighted to wrestle in Kumamoto again and they have an awesome wrestler in Umeda. Konosuke Takeshita told the story of Umeda going home to protect his friends and family when the earthquake struck. When he came back to DDT he was different, a stronger person. He said that when DDT comes back to Kumamoto there is only one person who should get a KO-D Openweight Title shot and that’s Umeda.
