Joey Ryan is back and he has the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title with him. So his DDT Extreme Title match with Daisuke Sasaki is now a Double Title Match! Sasaki chose Last Man Standing as the stipulation. Ryan isn’t worried. He’s fought Cody Rhodes inside a Steel Cage and had Hardcore Matches with the Young Bucks. A Last Man Standing Match doesn’t scare him. Sasaki admires Joey for being a man’s man. Sasaki wants to exceed Joey so he can replace him as Candice LeRae’s tag partner and Laura James’s husband. Joey lost his temper and had to be calmed down by Amon Tsurumi. Sasaki then corrected himself and said he would rather marry Candice and team with Laura. Joey had enough and attacked Sasaki but Sasaki ducked and rolled him over with a School Boy. Daisuke Kiso was there to count the pin and award Sasaki with the Iron Man Title! However Joey then grabbed Sasaki’s arm, made him grab his crotch and flipped him onto a table with his dick strength. Joey pinned Sasaki to win back the Iron Man Title and promised he will do the same in Hakata to become a double champion.

9. Osaka Wrestling School Vs Kishiwada Gurentai – Challenge to Yukinobu ~ Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie Vs “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo
The “DRAMATIC DREAMS!” show is a special event for Yukinori Matsui. DDT’s tribute to Osaka wrestling means a lot to him even if the current DDT fanbase may be too young to remember Osaka Pro’s glory days. But these shows are also a blast in the past for some of the wrestlers who were simply children when they were attending Osaka Pro events a decade ago, like Takeshita.
Be careful what you wish for. Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie wanted “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo for a dream match. Now they are going to get them at their worst! The Osaka veterans attacked them with chairs during an interview to show that their match isn’t going to be fun and games.
Kazusada Higuchi is now a full time DDT wrestler. To celebrate, here’s Shuji Ishikawa. Go nuts.
