The entire show was watched and studied by Shuji Ishikawa so he could pick the No. 1 contender for his KO-D Openweight Title. He wanted to pick someone who is worthy of a title shot and sat in a special area at ringside to watch the show. Throughout the evening Daisuke Sasaki kept saying Nobuhiro Shimatani was a diamond in the rough and deserves a shot. So he made impromptu Ishikawa Vs Shimatani matches whenever he could just as an excuse for Ishikawa to beat up the little guy. Ishikawa quickly beat Shimatani both times and Amon Tsurumi had to stop them from doing it again. At the end of the show everybody gathered together to hear who Ishikawa will pick. Sasaki decided the best way to choose is to have everybody kill each other and the last one left is determined the strongest. So a 24-Man Battle Royal took place and Kazusada Higuchi was the winner. Higuchi admitted Ishikawa is the strongest in DDT but that means if Higuchi wins then he becomes the strongest. The title match takes place at Korakuen Hall on 25th September.
After the main event Sasaki told Konosuke Takeshita that his KO-D Title loss at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016” was an end of an era. He challenged him to face Tetsuya Endo in a match there and then but Tsurumi instead booked it for Osaka on 18th September.
It didn’t take long for Yoshihiro Takayama to make an enemy. His first match as a DDT regular ended in a pull apart brawl with Yukio Sakaguchi. Tension between the two began before their tag team match even began when they stared each other down from across the ring. Takayama and Higuchi overpowered their opponents and gave Kota Umeda a Double Choke Slam before the finish.
Danshoku Dino is taking his new role of Wrestling Mentalist to heart by wearing a doctor’s coat. His current attempts to help Keisuke Ishii seem to be working after they won the 3 Way Tag Match. Ishii is in denial that he is sick. He then listed all the times he lost to Dino in singles matches in great detail. He currently has a 4-match losing streak against Dino. However he worked out in order to beat Dino the match has to be 17 minutes and 41 seconds long. Why? Because that was the match time of Akira Taue’s only Triple Crown win.
Kazuki Hirata is taking his preparations for Soma Takao seriously. He only danced during his entrance and there were no signs of using the HIRATA GO! glasses during their tag match. He only has one thing on his mind and that’s win the AJPW Jr. Title from Takao!
Makoto Oishi briefly mentioned the split between NωA and their manager happened because of “various circumstances”. Oishi said he wants to show that NωA needs the power of everybody to help them make it to “DDT FES 2016”.
Before the dark match took place Danshoku Dino accompanied Super Sasadango Machine to the ring. Dino is taking in Sasadango as his newest patient because he wants to help solve his problem of careless and inappropriate tweeting. Sasadango apologised for his controversial comments about female DDT fans from earlier this week. He proceed to lose the dark match against Hoshitango. Dino wonders is Sasadango now suffers from “The Curse Of The Coin”.
