*V1 for Yuko Miyamoto.
KUDO found himself in an unusal setting today. He fought Yuko Miyamoto in a Hardcore match featuring chairs, tables, ladders, pots and a barbed wire nunchucks that he brought himself. KUDO kicked out of the Fire Thunder through a table and was still in the match after another Fire Thunder but the Moonsault put his challenge to an end. Miyamoto thanked KUDO for letting him be involved in KUDO’s first ever Hardcore Match. He then said he will defend the DDT Extreme Title against anyone who wants to fight him. Shunma Katsumata answered the call. Miyamoto recognised him as that idol wrestler but Katsumata cut him off and said he has moved on to become an ALL OUT member. He asked if he could get the next title shot. Miyamoto accepted and the match will take place in Korakuen Hall on 25th February.
Before the main event took place, Joey Ryan and Antonio Honda came out promising to give the announcement of the century. They demanded Sanshiro Takagi to come out for his demand. Ryan asked Takagi if he could join T2Hide. Takagi thought about it until Ryan said he would become the leader of T2Hide and also the president of DDT. Takagi turned him down. He doesn’t care about the T2Hide leadership but taking the role of DDT president away from him is crossing the line. A fight was ready to break out until Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata calmed everyone down. When everyone was leaving the ring, Ryan grabbed Takagi and used his dong strength to flip him over. Honda gave Ryan and chair and held on to Takagi for the chairshot. Suddenly, Munenori Sawa came to the rescue! Sawa chased away Ryan & Honda until it was only himself and Takagi left in the ring. After a tense moment alone, Sawa offered a handshake to Takagi but Takagi refused. As the emotions between them built up, they finally hugged and paper crackers popped around ringside to celebrate the reunion of Takagi & Sawa! The two left the ring crying shoulder to shoulder. Backstage Sawa told Takagi he will be there for him at Sumo Hall on 25th March. They will team together for a Falls Count Anywhere match against any team that wants to face them. The interviewer asked them if their reunion reminded them of the Golden ☆ Lovers reunion that happened last week. Takagi said what happened today is completely original. Sawa said he had never seen anything like this before. They called the interviewer rude for asking such a silly question.
Daisuke Sasaki’s homecoming was ruined by Danshoku Dino but he eventually got his revenge. Dino tackled Sasaki to the mat and tried to do Danshoku things to him. Sasaki tapped out to get away from him. They agreed to an immediate rematch and Sasaki spat coffee mist into Dino’s eyes. He then made Dino submit to the Cross Facelock.
Today was a good first outing for Katsumata in his first match for ALL OUT. He wore new gear and got the winning pinfall too. Katsumata gave a standard victory speech but Akito interrupted and asked him to get back on the microphone. He has to say more than the usual to win over the audience. Katsumata promised everyone that he will make it to the top of DDT. Akito pushed him to continue and be more clear with his goals. Katsumata said that he will win a DDT championship! Now Akito was satisfied with the promo.
Ken Ohka wrestled Gota Ihashi to motivate Ihashi after comments by Riki Choshu gave him an identity crisis. Ohka won the match but gave Ihashi a captivating speech afterwards. Ohka offered Ihashi the chance to team with him and Kazusada Higuchi in the main event of next Tuesday’s YaroZ show. Ihashi promised to do his best for Ohka.
Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno continued to fight each other after Match #3 ended. When they were pulled apart Umeda challenged Ueno to a singles match.
Nobuhiro Shimatani is suffering from appendicitis and had to be replaced by Daiki Shimomura in Match #3.
