DDT’s summer tradition is now in a new home. This year’s Beer Garden week takes place in Shinjuku FACE instead of Shin-Kiba 1st RING. Most of the shows are put together by a different wrestler or group every night. What follows is a whirlwind of beer and creativity with some crazy match ideas and side events.
DDT “BEER GARDEN FIGHT 2016 ~DDT DAY~”, 08/08/2016
1. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Toru Owashi
*Toru Owashi will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
The week is supposed to begin with a KO-D Openweight Title match. This could change if Toru Owashi loses his Right To Challenge contract to someone else before then.

Two Beer Garden traditions take place here. First is Hisaya Imabayashi telling a scary ghost story.
