Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated HARASHIMA & Soma Takao, Sanshiro Takagi & Mizuki Watase and Shigehiro Irie Vs Gota Ihashi when Takeshita pinned Watase with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of weight plates (30:15).
To celebrate the opening of a new Fitness Shop in the Harajuku branch of Gold’s Gym, DDT was invited to set up a Falls Count Anywhere match in the building. The spectators were warned not to touch the shop goods or the working equipment for their own safety. “I will not run, I will not push, I will not get hurt” was the advice given to them for the match. Four chairs were laid out in the main storefront to act as the squared circle but obviously didn’t mean anything after the opening minutes. When the match began to spread out, Mizuki Watase pressed HARASHIMA into a sharp part of one of the exercise machines. Elsewhere Gota Ihashi tried to pin Konosuke Takeshita with Shigehiro Irie standing on top of him. Akito stopped them but Irie fought back with a Wonder Core.
Ihashi found boxing gloves and wore them to fight Sanshiro Takagi. His punches were countered by Takagi’s Low Kicks. They then found a climbing wall and Takagi challenged HARASHIMA to try it out. HARASHIMA successfully climbed up the device. Takagi couldn’t do the same. A daisy chain of Neck Locks was formed until HARASHIMA broke it by kicking Irie. Takagi dragged Watase over to a treadmill and made him sprint on it. Takeshita couldn’t stop laughing at this so Takagi grabbed him and told everyone to move the match outside.
It turned out Takeshita was still full of energy while everyone else began to feel tired. The 60 minute match from Saturday was enough preparation for him to take part in long matches. Watase climbed a drinks machine. He dove off of it onto Akito and Soma Takao below. Ihashi was made to do some benchpresses. Akito put Irie in the Scorpion Lock. Takeshita brought Watase over to the dumbbell area and tried to Brainbuster him. Watase blocked it until he was hit with a Big Boot to the face. Takeshita then gave Watase a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of 3 weight plates! That was enough for the three count. The shop manager called the event a surprising success and thinks they should do it again sometime.
