DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2016”, 24/07/2016
Tokyo Big Sight
Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takashita & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & MAO and Soma Takao & Kota Umeda when Takeshita pinned MAO with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the floor (19:27).
DDT returned to the HandMade In Japan Festival for another Street Wrestling match. The bout took place over at the Music & Play Stage and began with Sanshiro Takagi climbing a table to get everyone chanting along with his theme song. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi arrived wearing new leopard print wrestling gear. When the match began Konosuke Takeshita throwing Soma Takao onto the ground with an Arm Drag. Takao yelled the move didn’t hurt. Takagi and Kota Umeda wrestled until others come in and formed a chain of submission holds with Takai and Umeda in the centre. When the chain broke Takagi held Umeda in a Headlock and dragged him off the stage. He yelled at everyone to take the match outside!
The match found its way over to the café area and they wrestled while other festival visitors were eating their meals. Umeda held MAO upside down inside a rubbish bin and then a link of Figure Four Neck Locks were formed. Takagi encouraged the crowd to take pictures of the chain before it broke apart. The fight then made its way back to the stage.
Hiroshi made it to the stage first and grabbed a microphone. “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Everyone gather around. My name is Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. Although Japanese people do not know this, the top level of artists really come from the United States. I would like to show this off by singing a song to everyone today.” But before Hiroshi could sing, Takagi attacked him from behind. Takagi wanted to sing instead and began to play air guitar to “Jagged Heart Lullabye”. Hiroshi chased Takagi away and tried to sing again. While he got the crowd to clap along, Takagi returned on his Comat Bicycle and pushed Hiroshi off the stage. Amon Tsurumi and Yukinori Matsui were worried by what they just saw. If that microphone Hiroshi was holding got damaged there would have been Hell to pay!
Takagi next cycled towards Takeshita and ran him over while yelling “Die, Takeshita!” MAO then did a Moonsault from the stage onto Takeshita & Hiroshi. Takao & Umeda pushed out a pallet truck with Kazusada Higuchi standing on it and used it to crash into Takagi’s bicycle. MAO countered a Power Bomb from Takeshita into a Hurricanrana for a nearfall. Takeshita grabbed MAO again and gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster for the three count. After the match Takeshita invited the crowd to follow DDT and come see them at Sumo Hall on 28th August. The festival chairman came out and congratulated the wrestlers for a good show.
