This year’s holiday celebrations in Korakuen Hall will be based around a one night shuffled tag team tournament mixing together the Big Japan and DDT rosters. The field of wrestlers competing have been split into two sides. Each of the 16 teams will feature one wrestler from the Big Japan side and one wrestler from the DDT side. Expect the usual rules for the annual tournament like short time limits and one count pinfalls in sudden death overtime. The teams will be determined by an audience lottery held at a fan club event held in Korakuen on 29th November. TAKA has been responsible for putting several of the New Year’s Eve wrestling shows together over the last decade. Also scheduled for the show is a special match celebrating TAKA Michinoku’s 25th anniversary in pro wrestling.

Mike Bailey has been granted a shot at the Impact X Division Championship against the new champion Taiji Ishimori. Originally Bailey asked for the title match if he could beat Ishimori but his use of Google Translate to send the request was misunderstood. Ishimori took the message as an immediate challenge and agreed to put the X Division Title on the line at Differ Ariake. Bailey realises how important this match now is for him. He looks up to Ishimori and he is honored to be getting such a big opportunity.

6. DDT Extreme Title – No DQ Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Soma Takao
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Akito

A press conference was held in DDT HQ to announce the stipulations for the DDT Extreme Title match. Soma Takao showed up but the champion Daisuke Sasaki was absent. Hisaya Imabayashi called Sasaki on the phone to find out where he was. Sasaki admitted he was at his home sleeping and the phonecall just woke him up. He told Imabayashi that any match stipulation is fine, quickly picked a No DQ Match and then hung up. Takao was so angry at Sasaki’s behaviour that he grabbed a chair and threw it at the phone on the table.

There were no interpreters available to translate for Mike Bailey so he used Google Translate on his phone to speak to Tetsuya Endo. Bailey said Endo is a strong wrestler, he is very smart but also very angry. Bailey thinks if he can stay calm then he can beat Endo. He calls Endo one of the best high flyers in DDT. Bailey wants to prove he is the best high flyer. He said all of this into his phone but the Japanese translation was difficult for Endo and Imabayashi to understand. Bailey’s idea took them by so much surprise that they both struggled to keep in their laughter. Endo took out his own phone and spoke into it, translating his message to Bailey in English. He said Bailey is a good wrestler but also one pattern (I think he means one dimensional). Endo thinks it will be an easy match for him.

The four teams all appeared at a press conference held in the SKY PerfecTV Media Center to give their thoughts on the Differ Cup. Konosuke Takeshita & Kota Umeda are the youngest team in the tournament. Takeshita wants to show everyone that DDT is the strongest group. Ueno is thankful to get such a big opportunity going into his second year as a pro wrestler. Jun Kasai said he chose the newly debuted Tomoya Hirata as his partner to give him some experience. Kasai has faith that Hirata is competent enough to rely on even though he just had his first match a few days ago. Hirata hopes to beat Takeshita. On the NOAH team, Hitoshi Kumano said he already has a lot of good memories wrestling in Differ Ariake. He wants to win this tournament as an act of gratitude to the venue. Katsuhiko Nakajima wants himself and Kumano to wrestle together with pride. Tatsuhito Takaiwa mentioned he was a runner up in the first Differ Cup. He wonders what the tournament will be like now that heavyweights are allowed to enter. Sean Guinness says his team with Takaiwa is called Team Highball because they both drink Highballs together after training.

Mike Bailey found out that Taiji Ishimori recently won the X Division Title in Canada. Bailey wants a title shot if he can beat Ishimori at the Differ Cup. Imabayashi will check with NOAH to see if that can be done.

Danshoku Dino’s latest attention grabbing idea is to put himself into a Handicap match against 5 other wrestlers and have it sponsored by King’s Game The Animation.

Daisuke Sasaki wants to defend his title against TAKA Michinoku but DDT’s schedule is currently preventing that from happening.

Tominaga wants to prove that his low tier status will not hold him back from beating Sasaki and becoming a champion.

The Ganbare masked man tryouts are moving on to a second audition after the first failed horribly. Yukihiro Abe is getting a second chance as Ganbare The Akihabara. Joining him is Ganbare The Power, presumably Chikara.

In sad DNA news Dai Suzuki has announced he will retire from pro wrestling on 13th December. Away from wrestling, Suzuki has been working in an after school day service for children. While he enjoyed wrestling, Suzuki feels a stronger desire to work for social services and decided to put his focus on that as his career. Suzuki wants his retirement match to be against Ken Ohka because he is an inspiration to him. There was a time before Suzuki debuted in DNA where he got injured and by coincidence met Ohka in the same hospital. Ohka gave him the following advice: “I do not know how hard I can go, but I will still work hard.” Those words stuck with Suzuki and has motivated him ever since.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Maho Kurone Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Hyper Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Saki-sama Vs Azusa Takigawa
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miracle Apricots are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

It will be two months before the KO-D Openweight Title will be defended again.

Dino’s reason is DDT has so many championships now that they need to give time for other the other titles to be defended. Colt Cabana sent a message at “DDT SPECIAL 2017” challenging the winner of Konosuke Takeshita Vs Dino to put the belt on the line against him. Cabana gets his shot against Takeshita on Christmas Eve.
