2. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Makoto Oishi & Yoshihiko when Owashi pinned Yoshihiko (0:21).

5. DDT Megatonweight Single: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Yukio Naya with a Diving Body Press (14:09).
6. Burn, The Land Of Fire! Burn, DDT! Kumamoto Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match ~ DDT Sauna Club Vs DAMNATION: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno when Endo pinned Ueno with the Shooting Star Press (20:04).

The debut of the DDT Sauna Club could have gone better. MAO would have had Mad Paulie beaten but Daisuke Sasaki pulled Yukinori Matsui out of the ring during the pin count. By the time he recovered, DAMNATION went on the offensive. Konosuke Takeshita attempted to turn the tides but that fell apart when a Lariat aimed for Tetsuya Endo hit Yuki Ueno instead. Endo finished off Ueno to give DAMNATION the win. After the match Takeshita offered to bring MAO & Ueno to a local sauna. Ueno didn’t know if they deserved to visit one after losing a match. Takeshita told him that saunas accepts winners and losers. They can win and lose in wrestling but they never lose in the DDT Sauna Club!

The Running Elbow Butt is becoming an effective counter move for Soma Takao. He used it to stop dead Yuki Iino’s Spear.

Match #2 began with Yoshihiko lying on the canvas. Toru Owashi stepped on top of it and his weight easily pinned down his opponent for the three count. Kazuki Hirata complained about the match being so short. They didn’t go on a 16 hour bus ride to give paying customers a 20 second match! He told Makoto Oishi team with him and restart the match straight away. In the rematch Yoshihiko put up a far better fight. Hirata knocked out Owashi and Oishi with the Tegatana Chops to the neck. When he got his hands on Yoshihiko, the Hirata GO! Glasses came into play. All four wrestlers wore the glasses and danced until Yoshihiko pinned Hirata with the Reincarnation.

5a. Mizuki pinned Suzume with a Crab Scissors (0:28)
5b. Miyu Yamashita pinned Kiryu with a Middle Kick (3:21).
5c. Mahiro Kiryu pinned Miyu Yamashita after the Foot Stomp from Mizuki (3:27).

The main event was Best 2 out of 3 Falls with only two count pins needed to win each fall. Mizuki quickly won the first fall by countering Suzume’s Crab Hold into a Scissors Cradle. Miyu Yamashita evened the score by pinning Mahiro Kiryu. In the final fall, Mizuki used a Casadora on Yamashita to roll her in position for a Jumping Foot Stomp. Kiryu then leapt on top of Yamashita for the surprise pinfall. Yamashita blamed the loss on her forgetting the 2 count rule. Kiryu was happy to close out the Fan Club show for the second time in a row.

Yuka Sakazaki and Pom Harajuku faced off in a Valentine Death Match. The contest wasn’t dangerous at all for those two. In Round 1 random members of the audience were given two pieces of chocolate made by Sakazaki and Harajuku without being told which one was which. Afterwards they had to choose which one they liked more. After the vote it was revealed that Sakazaki’s chocolate was the winner. The second game was a cream puff eating challenge. Whoever ate the cream puff filled with wasabi would win. However the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) joined them and Hikari Noa ate the wasabi puff. The game went to sudden death and Harajuku eventually ate another puff filled with wasabi to win. The final round involved the Up Up Girls all attempted to feed Sakazaki and Harajuku a piece of hot chocolate while blindfolded. Sayuri Nanba and the referee were fed the chocolate by accident but Harajuku ended up getting bite too so she ultimately won the Death Match.

Unfortunately Shoko Nakajima, Hyper Misao and Yuki Aino were all missing from the show. Luckily replacements were found, three Nodoka-oneesans! The one that looked like Aino teamed up with Nodoka Tenma while the two that looked like Nakajima and Misao were paired together. The one that looked like Misao attempted the I Am A Hero but missed and was pinned by the other three. After the match all four women bumped into each other. They tried to do a Miyu Yamashita victory pose in their stunned state but all collapsed instead.

The last time Rika Tatsumi and Haruna Neko faced off at a Fan Club show, Neko had two other tag partners for a Handicap Match. Tatsumi was confident she would win today and gave Neko a less than 1% chance of beating her. Neko got some help from the Up Up Girls but it backfired when she got a bat and hit all of her allies by accident. Tatsumi cradled Neko for the win.

The Sea Rider used by Mirai Maiumi is a Modified Camel Clutch with one knee pressed against the victim’s back.

Himawari Unagi and the trainee Aona held a quick Rock Paper Scissors tournament for the fan club members during intermission.

Several members of Homoiro Clover Z came gathered together for a special reunion. There was Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi, Akito, KUDO, Hiroshi Fukuda and even Yoshihiko playing the role of Kota Ibushi all turning up. With the power of pop music, HomoClo won the main event with everyone getting involved. Fukuda knocked away HARASHIMA, KUDO gave Mizuki Watase a Buzzsaw Kick and Yoshihiko hit Keisuke Ishii with the Kamigoye. Oishi then pinned Watase with the Luminous Press.

Their victory celebration was interrupted by a familiar song. “ωe are the HERO!!” played as MAO & Shunma Katsumata walked out representing NωA! They came out calling themselves the only real idol unit in the history of DDT. Oishi was conflicted. Here he is with HomoClo but he is a part of NωA too. The two units had a tug of war over Oishi until he came up with an idea. Homoiro Clover Z and NωA will fight over who gets Oishi on the 26th March BOYZ show.

Keigo Nakamura’s audition for BOYZ began with him singing “Young Man” for his entrance. Hiroshi Yamato then showed him how it was really done by singing “BURN” and wrestling in a fancy suit.

Problems began to surface between Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Missed attacks and forced tags made it seem like they were going to break up. But they were able to solve their problem and reconcile.

6. Princess Of Princess Title: Yuka Sakazaki (c) defeated Lana Austin with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (10:48).
*V2 for Yuka Sakazaki.

The series between Yuka Sakazaki and Lana Austin ends with Sakazaki still holding the Princess Of Princess Title. Sakazaki has gotten to know Austin so much after their matches together and hopes they will interact again in the future. Now that she has successfully defended her title twice, Sakazaki’s love for the belt has grown deeper. Her next goal as champion is to defend the title in Tampa at the Tokyo Joshi Pro USA show this April. She wants to fight the best wrestlers no matter where they come from. Doesn’t matter if they are Japanese, American, British or even aliens from outer space.

Raku wins a match for the first time ever thanks to some new moves added to her repertoire. She used a Sling Blade on Miu Watanabe then pinned her with a Jumping Swinging Neckbreaker called the Doctor Yellow. Maki Itoh congratulated her but said if Raku wants to be like her then she should not be satisfied with just one win. Raku agreed and challenged Daydream to a Princess Tag Team Titles match! Rika Tatsumi accepted but needed to know who Raku would team with. Itoh said she would do it so everyone will find out what is stronger, her head or Tatsumi’s ass. Tatsumi was insulted and said her ass is a diamond. Raku thanked the fans for supporting her so far. They are her treasure and she wouldn’t be standing here without them. Itoh informed Raku that a special training regime for the match begins tomorrow.

The lesson Mina Shirakawa learned from her match against Miyu Yamashita was that wrestlers who focus on a particular move can be really strong, like Yamashita and her Spin Kicks for example. When they first met 5 years ago, Shirakawa was only at the show to perform a musical number as part of P-Samba. Now they’re having matches together and travelling around the world to wrestle.

Nodoka Tenma brought a giant chocolate bar to the ring as a gift for Hyper Misao because it was their first time teaming together. Also it is nearly Valentine’s Day. Misao reacted badly because Valentine’s Day gave her trauma. When Misao was 15 there was a boy she liked named Yamamoto. On Valentine’s Day she saw a cute girl confess her love to Yamamoto inside an empty classroom and the bitter memory has stuck with her ever since. Yuna Manase would happily take the chocolate if Misao couldn’t take it. Mahiro Kiryu then had an idea. The best way for Misao to get over her Valentine’s trauma is to feed her the chocolate! Tenma fed her a piece and Misao became revitalised. The plan worked too well because Misao then shouted “Happy Valentine!” after every move until she pinned Kiryu with the Hipami Returns.

Tokyo Joshi will put together a free show for women only in Itabashi Green Hall on 26th April.

5. Cody Hall defeated Yuki Ueno with the Razor’s Edge (9:30).
6. Charisma Vs Gongitsune!: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Antonio Honda with the Cross Facelock (12:22).
7. Harashimao Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when MAO pinned Iino with the Cannonball 450 (14:42).

HARASHIMA & MAO made a good team together in the main event. HARASHIMA took out Konosuke Takeshita with the Somato and MAO picked up the win by hitting the Cannonball 450 on Yuki Iino. After the match HARASHIMA gave MAO some advice for his KO-D Openweight Title match later this month. HARASHIMA told him Masato Tanaka is… incredibly strong! MAO thanked HARASHIMA for giving him this vital piece of information. With this knowledge, he can definitely beat Tanaka now!

HARASHIMA & MAO were then interrupted by Shinya Aoki. He brought out his Right To Challenge Gauntlet and told HARASHIMA he wants to cash it in for a DDT Extreme Title match. Hisaya Imabayashi stopped him to explain that the Gauntlets are only meant to be used for the KO-D Title and the Saitama Super Arena Sword. However Imabayashi is willing to grant Aoki an Extreme Title shot due to his existing track record in DDT. HARASHIMA accepted the challenge and the match will take place on 3rd March.

Aoki was earlier seen watching the Daisuke Sasaki Vs Antonio Honda match near ringside. Sasaki threw his shirt at Aoki after the match, daring him to use his Gauntlet to try and win the Sword. Aoki kept calm and let Sasaki be.

Cody Hall used Danshoku Dieno’s help to beat Yuki Ueno. When a ref bump happened, Dieno got into the ring and gave Ueno the Lip Lock. The Hole Brothers then did their Brainbuster/Spear combo. Ueno kicked out of the pin but then Hall used his father’s finisher the Razor’s Edge to put him away. Dieno had earlier won an RTC Gauntlet from Naomi Yoshimura so The Hole Brothers are going from strength to strength against Nautilus.

DAMNATION being such a well oiled machine is the reason why Mad Paulie now has an RTC Gauntlet. He was in danger of submitted to Akito’s Ankle Lock when Tetsuya Endo covered Akito’s eyes break the hold. The distraction allowed Nobuhiro Shimatani to give Akito the Fisherman Buster. Paulie then followed up with the Reverse Splash for the three count.

When the 3 Way Match spilled outside of the ring, Yukio Sakaguchi and Soma Takao noticed a bunch of Cody Hall portraits was already placed out on the merch tables. So they took a quick break to shill the portraits for fans to buy.

At the beginning of the show, Takeshita spoke about the upcoming DDT debut of Royce Chambers. Takeshita said Chambers is pretty green but his aerial skills are amazing. Takeshita would like to branch ALL OUT over to Australia and invite more Australian wrestlers to join his group. Chambers wills face Chris Brookes on 3rd March.

The 2020 King Of DDT begins on 10th June and the final takes place on 28th June.
