Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo and Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Takeshita pinned Hirata with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of three weightlifting plates (33:19).
Pro wrestlers love gyms so it was just a matter of time until a bunch of them got together to wrestle in one while everyone else is working out. Before the match took place HARASHIMA appeared for a public interview. The KO-D Openweight Champion said that Shigehiro Irie wrestling for months in America has changed his skill in ways he never expected. He is also expecting Mike Bailey to be a solid opponent waiting for him if he can beat Irie.
When the interview was over it was time for the Falls Count Anywhere Match. Yoga mats and poles were placed in an open area to act as the ring but the action moved elsewhere pretty quickly. HARASHIMA wasn’t part of the match, instead he spent his time sparring with Akito. Kazuki Hirata intervened and was quickly trapped in an Ankelock by HARASHIMA. Hirata gave up but the referee couldn’t do anything. While this was going on the other wrestlers got involved with an aerobics class.
When the class ended the match restarted. Konosuke Takeshita put Hirata in a Stretch Plum. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo grabbed Hirata’s hand and tried to trap his fingers between two weights. Sanshiro Takagi placed a stack of weight plates down on Antonio Honda’s knees. Sasaki climbed one of the workout machines and did a Diving Lariat off it onto Takagi. The DAMNATION wrestlers then forced their opponents to run on the running machines nearby. The Happy Motel and T2Hide teams both escaped down to the lobby. They put each other in a line of Figure Four Neck Locks next to a Christmas tree. Sasaki grabbed Hirata, walked him up the stairs and then tried to tightrope walk on the rail. Hirata knocked him off balance and Sasaki crotched himself then slid down the rail.
Takagi found a table and put Honda through it with a Piledriver. Sasaki gave Takeshita a Low Blow but was knocked into a wire fence by Hirata. Hirata then found a stack of weightlifting plates and tried to drop Takeshita onto them with the Egoist Driver but Takeshita escaped. Instead Takeshita gave Hirata a Brainbuster onto the plates! There was no coming back from that, Takeshita pinned Hirata for the win. The gym’s manager awarded Takeshita & Honda with medals for the victory. He said he would like to do the event again to continue the good relationship between DDT and Gold’s Gym. Takeshita says he and Honda are bulking up everyday thanks to Gold’s Gym. He will finish his visit with a deadlift.
