DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021 TOUR IN SHINJUKU”, 15/07/2021
1. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – No DQ, No Submission Rules: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Shinya Aoki (I/c)
A lot of time was spent by Chris Brookes thinking up the stipulation for the double title match against Shinya Aoki. He decided on No DQs and also No Submission rules. Moves that are normally illegal are allowed but almost all kinds of submission holds will be banned. The only kinds that can be used are holds the referee will deem too dangerous to use in normal matches. Aoki complained about the rules but Brookes explained that he also is at a disadvantage because he cannot use the Octopus Hold. Therefore they will be on equal footing. Aoki thinks the rules will create the worst wrestling match of the century. Brookes disagrees. His felt his title defence against Saki Akai brought new aspects to her wrestling game. So from now on he is using his DDT Extreme Title matches to show new sides of his opponents that no one has ever seen before. Aoki had no choice but to accept the stipulation. He had to be reminded that his Choke Holds won’t be allowed either.

5. MONDAY NIGHT WAR: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Minoru Fujita
There will be a special guest on the show in the form of Darkunesu K. This being is a character Keigo Nakamura came up with during the Lords Mobile promotional campaign DDT was a part of recently. Nakamura needs to do a lot of dark activities during the day in order to summon Darkunesu K from within himself.
I’m hoping for a big showing from Leo Isaka against Tetsuya Endo here.
DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 1”, 30/07/2021
1. Danshoku Dieno Produce Match – Kaidan Shin Numabukuro Death Match ~Showa, Heisei, Reiwa Are Also A Classic!~: X Vs X
2. Saki Akai Produce Match: Kazusada Higuchi’s Relative, Yukio Sakaguchi’s Relative & Saki Akai’s Relative Vs Kazuki Hirata’s Relative, Yuki Iino’s Relative & Keigo Nakamura’s Relative
3. HARASHIMA Produce Match: X Vs X
It’s all relatives for one of the matches on the first day of Beer Garden. It is Saki Akai’s idea to get some “enchanted blood” wrestling in her segment.
Hisaya Imabayashi gets to tell his annual ghost story. Where does he keep getting them?
DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 2”, 31/07/2021
1. Shunma Katsumata Produce – Hardcore 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Yuki Ueno Vs Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO
2. Tetsuya Endo Produce Match: Tetsuya Endo & Hiroshi Yamato Vs Seiya Morohashi & X
3. Makoto Oishi Produce Match ~ Our Youth: Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Hideki Okatani Vs MEN’S Teioh, Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi
I think this is the first time Jun Akiyama and MEN’S Teioh will be in the same match together. Makoto Oishi has gone all out with this booking with Shiori Asahi included to make it a more complete Men’s Club reunion.
Seiya Morohashi? Boy it’s been years since he was last in DDT. I mean yeah there was an appearance on a Masahiro Takanashi booked show in 2019 but other than that his last DDT match was in 2016.
Of course Shunma Katsumata’s idea for his slot is to put all of The 37KAMIINA into a hardcore match.
DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 3”, 01/08/2021
1. Rock & Roll Death Match: Antonio Honda Vs X
2. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: X, X & X Vs X, X & X
Can’t leave out Antonio Honda from the Rock & Roll Death Match. Unless he gets hurt, that is.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki
0. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita
Konosuke Takeshita says everything is in order for him to become the KO-D Openweight Champion again. His King Of DDT victory showed he now has the physical ability, mental attributes, luck and momentum to be the top wrestler in DDT. He has lost two singles matches to Akiyama that both took place last winter. It was up to Takeshita to fix his own problems and it began with his appearances in AEW back in April. As a result of his own actions over the last three months, Takeshita is now confident to fight Akiyama to see who is best. Even though Akiyama is well accepted into the DDT family at this point, Takeshita is still going to treat him as the enemy.
As if having Atsushi Onita isn’t enough to keep the hardcore flavour around, Jun Kasai will be on the show too. Katsumata and Brookes have a little bit of tag history with him. MAO fought him in a Hardcore match a few years ago too.
