*V1 for Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda.
The main event title match was entirely an DNA affair. Kota Umeda credited Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda for the victory and he thanked Takeda for coming over from Triple Six to wrestle in DDT and DNA. The team advertised the first DNA show in Osaka that will take place on 16th July.
Both Daisuke Sasaki and KUDO wanted to get in the way of Konosuke Takeshita and Shigehiro Irie’s situation during the 4 Way Match. When Takeshita and Irie did get to fight each other, Irie ended up getting the upper hand. At one point Irie gave Takeshita a Piledriver on top of Sasaki! KUDO missed the Diving Double Knee Drop to Sasaki and both of them were hit by Irie’s Running Cannonball. Irie got the win with the Beast Bomber to Sasaki. He told Takeshita afterwards he will take the KO-D Openweight Title from him by all means necessary on 29th April. Takeshita said he cannot lose the title to somebody who does not love DDT. He promised the Osaka crowd he will return to the city as the champion still.
HARASHIMA had to put up a bigger fight than usual when facing Mad Paulie given Paulie’s current state. Paulie brawled around ringside wearing a collar and leash around his neck. HARASHIMA grabbed the leash and pulled it through the ropes to choke Paulie against the corner post with the collar. Paulie overpowered HARASHIMA with splashes and a Fisherman Buster. But HARASHIMA recovered and knocked out Paulie with the Somato to win. He called “Red Paulie” strong but HARASHIMA is ready to challenge for the DDT Extreme Title so nobody could stop him today.
Keisuke Ishii is getting ready for a shot at Ken Ohka and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He feels that Ohka has been in bad condition recently and thinks he has calmed down from his “Major Wrestling” push for Ganbare☆Wrestling. In fact, Ishii said Okha has become weak ever since he got married! Ganpuro wrestler and DDT cameraman Yumehito Imanari got into an argument with Ishii over his opinions during his post-match interview.
Kazuki Hirata gave Yuni a Low Blow to set him up for the Miracle Cradle finish. Hirata was thrilled to win a match over the kid. The crowd booed him so he tried to win them back over by dancing. Yuni stopped him with a Hurricanrana and told him they will continue to battle against each other.
