This was DDT’s second show in Nagano since Toru Owashi was hired as the company’s sale manager for the region. His team were rewarded with boxes of apples, chocolate and chanko-nabe from Owashi’s family restaurant for winning the main event. Owashi wondered if the prizes were just a variety of stuff taken from his home. He got the win with his old finishing move the Diving Body Press.
DAMNATION survived a close call against Shuten-dōji but they escaped with the KO-D Tag Team Titles still in their grasps. Daisuke Sasaki’s Swandive Elbow hit Tetsuya Endo instead of their opponents. KUDO would have then won with a Sandwich PK followed by the Diving Double Knee Drop to Sasaki but Endo stopped the referee from counting to three. Yukio Sakaguchi hit Endo with the Right Knee Of God while KUDO readied Sasaki for a Buzzsaw Kick. Sasaki ducked the kick and caught KUDO with the Sasaki Hurricanrana for the flash pin. DAMNATION were rewarded with liquor for winning but Sasaki cut off the ceremony to make a demand. He refused to do anymore Tag Title defences and wants DAMNATION to be declared the permanent champions! Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda came forth to throw out a challenge. Takeshita wants a tag title shot but it won’t be with Honda. It will be with “Speedball” Mike Bailey! Sasaki refused but GM Amon Tsurumi confirmed the match will got ahead in Osaka on 4th December. Takeshita warned the champions that both him and Bailey are coming for revenge on DAMNATION!
The last time Danshoku Dino wrestled in Saku he successfully transformed the area into a Gay Town. This time he wanted to rename the chanko-nabe recipe created by Toru Owashi’s family into something too lewd for me to understand. Kouki Iwasaki objected to this and vowed to protect the restaurant from Dino. Unfortunately for Iwasaki he got his face smushed into Dino’s backside and was then pinned by Keisuke Ishii. Dino proudly called out the recipe’s new lewd name after the match.
Today’s show was a special occasion for Mizuki Watase because he got to wrestle in his hometown. Watase almost pinned Akito with some help from Kazusada Higuchi but Yasu Urano pulled the referee out of the ring mid-count. The distraction allowed Akito to recover and beat Watase with the Hanamasa, spoiling the hometown hero’s return.
Nobuhiro Shimatani continues his losing streak against Daiki Shimomura. Even worse he is still the King Of Dark Champion.
