6. Sapporo Specialty! Sea Urchin, Scallop, Cuttlefish, Crab Bowl Special 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Danshoku Dino, HARASHIMA and KUDO when Takeshita pinned Dino with a Gaydo Clutch (15:10).
The 4 Way Main event split off into two stories, Konosuke Takeshita Vs Danshoku Dino and HARASHIMA Vs KUDO. While all four fought each other throughout the match, those two pairings got the most focus. KUDO gave Dino a Buzzsaw Kick and had HARASHIMA pinned with the Diving Double Knee Stop. But Takeshita stopped the count by lifting KUDO up with a German Suplex. With KUDO and HARASHIMA both out of the ring, Dino ducked under Takeshita’s Lariat and he trapped him in the Lip Lock. Dino went for the Gaydo Clutch but Takeshita reversed it with a Gaydo Clutch of his own to get the three count. HARASHIMA and KUDO had a staredown before they both left the ring. Takeshita told Dino after the match that he figured out his weakness. What works best against Dino is an eye for and eye, a tooth for a tooth and fighting fire with fire. Dino is weak against his own Danshoku style! Dino said it is no good that a straight wrestler pretends to be gay to beat him. Takeshita pointed out that it worked for him today. Dino called it a fluke. He said Takeshita is afraid of the Danshoku style and creating his own to combat it will not work in the end. He will eventually learn how much depth there is to the style and it isn’t something Dino does for his own self-interests.
Both Kazusada Higuchi and Kouki Iwasaki were motivated to be at their best today because the show was in their home prefecture of Hokkaido. Higuchi won the match and described it as an emotional event. He hopes to continue working hard for DDT and see DNA do the same.
Daisuke Sasaki announced he will be cashing out of Ken Ohka’s bank account on 10th October when he returns to Tokyo. He believes the money will make him the Million Dollar Man and he’ll be so rich he will never have to wrestle again. He claims tomorrow’s match will be his last.
