DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? ~DDT DRAMATIC GENERAL ELECTION 2017 ~LAST REQUEST SPECIAL!~”, 24/09/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

5. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone But Is Worried Whether It Will Be Suitable Content – Loser Leaves House: Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine
6. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone: HARASHIMA Vs KUDO
7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Ken Ohka (I/c)

Producer Danshoku Dino explained why he decided to make the HARASHIMA Vs KUDO match. If Sanshiro Takagi, NOSAWA Rongai and MIKAMI were the most important figures in DDT’s creation then HARASHIMA and KUDO are the most important wrestlers for the rest of the 20 year history of the company. Dino wants to see who is the stronger of the two in today’s DDT. HARASHIMA thinks the winner of this match can have a claim to be the No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Openweight Title. KUDO is confident he will win because he beat HARASHIMA in their last singles match together.

For the 3 Way Match main event, KUDO predicts Ken Ohka will find a way to win. Ohka famously won the KO-D Title from KUDO back in 2015 by using his Right To Challenge title shot in the middle of KUDO’s defence against Yasu Urano, turning it into a 3 Way in the process. Ohka pinned Urano to become the champion. His plan worked perfectly but KUDO had his own Right To Challenge Contract and cashed it in to immediately win back the championship. KUDO thinks the landscape of the upcoming main event changes completely with the addition of Ohka. He knows Ohka will have a trick up his sleeve to win somehow.

A weird moment happened at the “NON-FIX ~ 9.13 ~” show a few days ago. Muscle Sakai and Super Sasadango Machine were in the ring together at the same time. It was odd because nobody had ever seen them in the same place before. Sasadango explained in an unusual voice that he hired Sakai as a subcontractor to help Producer Dino with his busy schedule. Sakai’s role is to produce the first ever singles match between Dino Vs Sasadango. Dino is allowing this because Sakai is such an indispensable part of DDT history. Sasadango shocked both Sakai and Dino by revealing that the match is now a Loser Leaves House match! Whoever loses must leave their home and move somewhere else! Sakai got mad because he, er, Sasadango just bought his house in Niigata. When asked why he would make that stipulation, Sasadango said it’s because he lived in Niigata for many years and should move to Tokyo even though he doesn’t want to. But he is also determined not to lose the match. He came up with this stipulation only because the match needs a bet. Sakai admitted he’d like to make Dino move to a new house so the stipulation was accepted!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “OSAKA DE BAKOON!”, 30/09/2017
Osaka Miyakojima Kumin Center

1. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki (c) Vs Mizuki

Mizuki pinned Reika Saiki in the TOKYO Princess Tag Tournament, so that makes her the No. 1 Contender.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DON’T YOU SEE! 2017”, 30/09/2017
Osaka Toshima Citizen Center

1. Fumihiko Uwai Produce Match: Dai Suzuki Vs X

3. Batsuichi-gun Vs Ganpuro-gun: Minoru Fujita & Shoichi Uchida Vs Shuichiro Katsumura & Shota
4. Forgotten K ICE BREAK: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Yasu Urano
5. Special Single Match: Ken Ohka Vs MIYAWAKI

Ganbare☆Wrestling only visits Osaka a couple of times a year so when Ohka found out he had an opportunity to wrestle MIYAWAKI, he couldn’t say no. If Ohka is still the Independent World Jr. Champion then he will defend the title against him.

Yumehito Imanari is still upset over the lack of plump women in Ganpuro so he’s making his match with Sumire Natsu and HARUKAZE a Double Sweet Death Match! Candy will be everywhere for this one. He was hoping Viper would get booked because she is in Japan for a Stardom tour. He’d be happy to book Toni Storm too. She doesn’t seem to be his type but he likes her face. Ohka is refusing to book them for the show because they already have Natsu and HARUKAZE.

Promoter Fumihiko Uwai will be attending the show to do some ring announcing and also select Dai Suzuki’s opponent.

DNA “DNA 37”, 12/10/2017
Kitasenju Theatre 1010

1. Yuki Ueno Vs Koju Takeda
2. Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo
3. Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Diego

DNA continues to be attack on two fronts. Kouki Iwasaki & Diego are trying to stop Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo’s new reign of terror. Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani are standing up to Keisuke Okuda after his claims that DNA’s wrestlers are lukewarm talents. It looks like the only outsider getting along with DNA is Koju Takeda. He and Yuki Ueno enjoyed teaming together at “DNA 36” and now want to see who is the better man between them.


TAKAYAMANIA Launched For Yoshihiro Takayama

September 6, 2017

On 4th May this year, Yoshihiro Takayama suffered a cervical spinal cord injury during a DDT show held in Toyonaka, Osaka. He was sent to a hospital in Osaka and had surgery on 8th May. Although he regained consciousness after surgery, he lost all feeling in his body from the neck down and he needed to be attached to a ventilator to breath. When he could return to breathing on his own, he was transferred to a hospital in Kanto in last month. However he still has not regained any feeling from the shoulders down. Unfortunately his doctors have said they do not currently see the possibility of a full recovery for Takayama.

People from around the Japanese pro wrestling scene have decided to come together and volunteer to help Takayama during his rehabilitation. TAKAYAMANIA is an effort to raise money to pay for Takayama’s treatment and medical expenses. Companies will provide donation boxes at their shows for fans to give money. A bank account set up by Takayama’s wife was launched for Japanese residents to donate to and there is also a blog promising to give updates on Takayama’s progress. In the future, plans are being made to create TAKAYAMANIA merchandise and also a charity wrestling show is being considered.

The list of DDT shows that will provide donation boxes this month are DNA in Shinkiba on 7th September, DDT in Naruto City on 9th September, Tokyo Joshi Pro in Shinkiba on 9th September, BASARA in Chiba on 10th September and Ganbare☆Wrestling in Shinjuku on 21st September.

TOKYO Princess Tag Title Tournament

August 30, 2017

The brand new TOKYO Tag Team Championships are up for grabs in a 7 team tournament taking place over the next two months. A lottery was held to determine the first round matches as well as which team would get a bye into the semi-final. The competing teams are:

Muscle Strikers: Reika Saiki & Miyu Yamashita
Miracle Apricots: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima
BRAVE☆MATES: Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan
Dragon Bombers: Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone
Ito Respect Army: Maki Ito & Mizuki
Konkatsu-gun: Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko
trick student: Yuna Manase & Marika Kobashi

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SHINKIBA DE BAKOON!”, 09/09/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Round 1A: Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Reika Saiki & Miyu Yamashita
2. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Round 1B: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima Vs Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko
3. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Round 1C: Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan Vs Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone

Mizuki says she usually feels anxious when she wrestles on her own. But she’s never scared when she’s with Maki Ito. Ito is so brave that she originally wanted to fight on her own against three opponents! Reika Saiki recently won the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title and wants the Tag Title belt to throw over her other shoulder. Miyu Yamashita just doesn’t want to lose to two girls with weird ribbons in their hair.

The Miracle Apricots are the longest serving tag team in Tokyo Joshi Pro. They were originally called the Fighting Comedians but both Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima feel that they have matured a lot since then. Together they can achieve miracles and can conquer the world! Azusa Takigawa thinks Konkatsu-gun are in luck because the title belts are colored pink and silver, the colours of love. Nonoko thinks the belts were literally made for her & Takigawa.

Nodoka-oneesan says it takes just as much courage to fight with your friends by your side than it is to fight on your own. So that’s why her team with Yuu is called BRAVE☆MATES. The Dragon Bombers would prefer the belts to be blood red so Maho Kurone could eat them. Rika Tatsumi hopes to win the title with Kurone so they can edit Kurone’s Wikipedia page to say she won this and also the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. If only Tatsumi could figure out how to edit Wikipedia pages first…

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Semi Final: Winners Of Match 1A Vs Winners Of Match 1B
2. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Semi Final: Yuna Manase & Marika Kobashi Vs Winners Of Match 1C

trick student is the sole team that are already in the semi final. Marika Kobashi thinks she is the cutest in Tokyo Joshi and deserves the cutest championship so she will fight hard to win this title with Yuna Manase. Their team name comes from their costume colours, Kobashi’s orange and Manase’s purple, being suitable for Hallowe’en. They are also both students in different schools (Kobashi in high school and Manase in vocational school). Thus they are two students who wants to play tricks.

Irie To Go On Another Excursion

August 30, 2017

Shigehiro Irie will be going on another excursion to the United States later this year. Irie approached DDT for permission to take the trip after “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”. His final show for DDT before he leaves will be the Nagoya show on 18th September and his excursion is planned to last for almost the rest of this year. Because of this, Irie has removed himself from the Dramatic General Election. But if YaroZ win the Unit Election and get to book their own Korakuen Hall show on 30th December, Irie is eligible to be a part of the show.

Irie explained that he felt confident he and Kazusada Higuchi would not lose to anyone but HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji proved them wrong at Sumo Hall. Now that he is no longer a KO-D Tag Team Champion, Irie thinks it is necessary to discover new experiences. Also all of his friends in America have been asking him when he would visit them again. He received one message in particular that evening after Sumo Hall that fired up his desire to travel again. This time around he wants a variety of different challenges to face in America. There are so many more wrestlers over there who match his size and there are also so many strange styles that aren’t found in Japan.

One of his last matches in Japan will be against Yuki Ino for DNA on 7th September. They are having a Knock On Match which is referencing Ino’s rugby experience. It sounds like fouls will be treated like in rugby instead of the normal pro wrestling rules. Irie doesn’t foul people and promises to fight a clean match.
