*V2 for ALL OUT.
The show began with ALL OUT giving the opening speech until DISASTER BOX interrupted them. Yuki Ueno said that he and Naomi Yoshimura went to a time limit draw with Konosuke Takeshita & Akito in Shinjuku last week. HARASHIMA is also the DDT Extreme Champion. That means the three of them deserve a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match today. Akito asked what would happen to ALL OUT’s match with the Sendai Girls if they lose. Ueno told him he doesn’t care. Akito refused the challenge but Takeshita reminded him of his goal to defend his championships outside of Tokyo more often. Hisaya Imabayashi told the teams that title matches need to be endorsed by the GM Tetsuya Koda but he is currently travelling on one of the company coaches with the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. Suddenly Koda appeared and he told everyone he changed his travel plans and will take a late night bus home. He also agreed to changing the main event into a title match.
It was a close match but ALL OUT squeaked by with the win when Takeshita blocked Ueno’s Casadora and pressed him down with the pin. After the match, Yuki Iino told Takeshita he isn’t going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet today. He then performed a Haka victory dance for the fans.
It’s all going downhill for Daisuke Sasaki. He lost his match again today this time to Mike Bailey. Sasaki was on the top rope while Mad Paulie distracted Bailey. But Bailey stopped Sasaki and hit the Flamingo Driver to win. All Sasaki can think about nowadays is losing. Even when he sleeps he is losing in his dreams. He thinks he is old as a grandpa too. Soma Takao tried to get him to focus on their KO-D Tag Team Titles match but nothing seems to get him out of his current state.
Antonio Honda Vs Maku Donaruto went the way of your typical Danshoku Dieno match. Honda accidentally blinded Daisuke Kiso with the Gongitsune poke. Donaruto hit the McFly Swanton Bomb but Kiso couldn’t count because of his eyesight. Donaruto grabbed Kiso and decided that dry humping him would somehow solve the problem. Honda grabbed Donaruto and tried to stop him but it only made the situation worse. The match had to be called off because of this.
Bull James is happy to wrestle in Japan for the first time and wants to be in a bunch of matches with a variety of styles. For his DDT debut things started off a little rusty when James needed to sit down on a chair after being tricked to run the ropes over and over. Tomomitsu Matsunaga tried to take advantage but James was able to Hip Toss him as he stood up off the chair. Matsunaga used his strength to Body Slam and Lariat the American but James fired up, hit a Corner Splash and then the Doink Drop to win.
The first Right To Challenge Gauntlet transfer took place in the opener. Kazuki Hirata used Yuni to give Makoto Oishi a Hurricanrana then he piled on top of them to get the pin.
Yukinori Matsui made some announcements for his 25th Anniversary show on 26th May. Kikutaro Vs Kuishinbo Kamen will take place with Matsui as the referee. He said this is the first time in five years that match will happen with him involved. Shigehiro Irie will also be wrestling on the show.
