7. DDT Extreme Title – No Woman No Cry Match: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Saki Akai

Danshoku Dino wants his DDT Extreme Title defence against Saki Akai to be a No Woman No Cry Match. As the go-to mentalist in pro wrestling, Dino diagnosed Akai with having an emotional instability. The cure is to shake her to her emotional core so in addition to the normal pro wrestling rules, the match can also be won if a wrestler can make their opponent cry.

The annual New Years Eve show is confirmed to have the annual tag team tournament mash up. It is advertised as a tournament between five organisations: Big Japan, DDT (+DNA & BASARA), K-DOJO and for the first time All Japan and WRESTLE-1 are officially in on the act. The tournament features the usual cast of regular teams, powerful inter-promotional pairings and joke duos. The first round and second round matches all have a 10 minute time limit. The semi finals have a 15 minute time limit. Any time limit draws will go to sudden death overtime where matches end on a one count pinfall. The final has no time limit and thus no sudden death.
