1. Rika Tatsumi defeated Sena Shiori with the Twist Of Fate (7:27).
2. Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa defeated Pom Harajuku, Mahiro Kiryu & Haruna Neko when Shirakawa pinned Harajuku with the Implant DDT (7:57).
3. Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma with La Magistral Cradle (6:43).
4. Maki Itoh & Raku defeated Miu Watanabe & Suzume when Raku pinned Suzume with the Doctor Yellow (10:46).

6. Miyu Yamashita defeated Natsumi Maki with the Crash Rabbit Heat (10:59).

Third time was not the charm for Natsumi Maki. She is now 0-3 in singles matches against Miyu Yamashita. Maki left her guard down after hitting a Thrust Kick, allowing Yamashita to catch her with the Backward Kick. When Maki struggled to get back to her feet, Yamashita hit the Crash Rabbit Heat to win. After the match Maki refused to shake her opponent’s hand and walked off angry. Yamashita said she wants to have a fourth match with Maki but only when one of them has a championship. That way they will both be stronger when the time comes.

Yuka Sakazaki is feeling lonely because she no longer has any Princess Title defences coming up. She just has to wait for a new contender to appear.

Maki Itoh didn’t want to shake her opponents’ hands only because she wanted to avoid close contact. She also wanted to take this match seriously in preparation for her Princess Tag Team Titles match with Raku next week.

Both Hyper Misao and Nodoka Tenma drank milk during their match to recover from each other’s moves. Tenma took so long to drink a liter of milk that Misao pinned her to win.

Rika Tatsumi will release a solo photobook on 3rd May.

*V2 for Masato Tanaka.

Heck if I know if it was a good idea to do this but DDT’s monthly Korakuen Hall show went ahead today in front of an audience. The main event to celebrate DDT’s 23rd anniversary saw the face of the company attempt to regain the KO-D Openweight Title. The champion Masato Tanaka used chairs to great effect, using them to attack Konosuke Takeshita’s knees as well as hit a direct chairshot to the head. A Splash from the top rope through a table outside also caused great damage to Takeshita. However Takeshita used the chair against Tanaka by Corner To Corner Dropkicking it into his face. Takeshita hit an Avalanche Air Raid Crash but Tanaka kicked out of the pin. The Fable was countered into a Power Bomb. Tanaka kept using Elbow Strikes to cut off Takeshita’a offence. He would hit short range Sliding D’s but Takeshita would find a way to prevent Tanaka from hitting the move at full force. Takeshita threw his own Elbow Strikes but Tanaka stood tall at the end when he pulled off his elbow pad and struck Takeshita raw with an unprotected Rolling Elbow. There was no kicking out after that.

Tanaka said he was so happy to fight Takeshita today because of the struggle he gave him. When Takeshita left ringside, Yuki Iino approached the ring threatening to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. However it was only a threat and he left without doing anything. Tanaka had an opportunity to choose his next challenger again but he wasn’t sure who to pick. Suddenly, Yukio Sakaguchi sprung into the ring! He wants the next title shot in April. The match was accepted with Tanaka standing on the middle rope so he could look down on Sakaguchi. The final words went to Sakaguchi. In April will win the KO-D Title and Kazusada Higuchi will win the Saitama Super Arena Sword. That will mean when June comes around, the main event of Saitama Super Arena will be occupied entirely by Eruption! Sakaguchi then thanked the fans for coming out today. He works a regular job along with his pro wrestling career so he is grateful that the fans continue to support DDT. In return everybody in DDT is encouraged to do their best.

Easy come, easy go. The first DDT UNIVERSAL Champion loses the belt in his first defence. An out of ring brawl made up the early part of the match with Chris Brookes attempting to put Daisuke Sasaki through some chairs with the Praying Mantis Bomb. Instead Sasaki dropped both Brookes and himself into the row of chairs with a Russian Leg Sweep. Sasaki also hit a Diving Elbow Drop from the ring corner to a seated Brookes outside the ring. DAMNATION interfered once Brookes regained some ground. Sasaki intentionally used Brookes to take out Daisuke Kiso. Tetsuya Endo’s Overhead Kick hit Sasaki by mistake and Brookes hit the Praying Mantis Bomb. Kiso counted the pin until Mad Paulie pulled him out of the ring. Brookes wiped out DAMNATION with a dive then made Sasaki submit to the Octopus Hold but there was no referee to call the match. Nobuhiro Shimatani came in to attack Brookes with the DAMNATION signboard but Masahiro Takanashi came out to get rid of him. Kiso got back up to count some nearfalls like Sasaki’s Diving Elbow and Brookes’ Tombstone Piledriver. Brookes went for the Praying Mantis Bomb once more but Sasaki countered it into the Cross Facelock. He then switched it into the Crossover Facelock to make Brookes submit.

Sasaki’s first words as the new champion was “Old dog never die!” He said all beer from the UK is soft with no carbonation so he will not take on any challengers from Britain anymore. Antonio Honda entered the ring to challenge Sasaki but he tripped over the ropes. He got back up and said Sasaki has a filthy heart. Sasaki began to meditate to fix that problem but Honda told him to get back up. Honda challenged Sasaki to a title match but he was turned down.

As briefly mentioned earlier, Eruption has the main event of “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” in their sights. Sakaguchi is going straight after the KO-D Title while Higuchi is now targeting Endo for the SSA Sword. Higuchi threw Endo for a loop by using a Package Power Bomb but it was Sakaguchi who won the match by pinning Shimatani. T-Hawk was earlier taken out with a Higuchi Lariat so it was a rough match for the Business Alliance.

When the match ended, El Lindaman promoted the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match he, Endo & T-Hawk will be a part of in two days time. ALL OUT interrupted the Business Alliance because Royce Chambers had something to say. He will be going back to Australia tomorrow so he is using his Right To Challenge Gauntlet to win the SSA Sword right now! Chambers went for the kill by using his own high flying moves to counter Endo’s. They both used Canadian Destroyers on each other but Endo took it one step further by doing a Double Arm Canadian Destroyer. Chambers kicked out of the pin after that but was down and out when Endo hit the Shooting Star Press. Endo got on the mic and said as long as he is in the ring, nobody else will get the chance to be at the top! He told Chambers to study more Japanese if he ever comes back. He then joked about wrestling in saunas before warning ALL OUT that the Business Alliance will win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles! Whoever comes out as the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions after 22nd March will defend the belts against DISASTER BOX on 4th April.

Naomichi Marufuji was back to team with DISASTER BOX and his partnership with HARASHIMA in particular had not lost a step. When Yuki Ueno dove out of the ring onto Iino & Chambers, it left HARASHIMA & Marufuji alone with Akito. Together they hit a Double Thrust Kick, Marufuji did the Shiranui and HARASHIMA won with the Somato.

After the match, HARASHIMA thanked Marufuji for reforming HarashiMarufuji after a long time apart. They brought up the idea of tagging together at “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. That caused CIMA & Soma Takao to come out. CIMA made fun of the HarashiMarufuji team name. It isn’t an easy name to say. CimaSoma is easy to say which means it is a better name. CIMA could have confronted Marufuji back on the 3rd January DDT show but he was occupied with Business Alliance stuff. In the end CimaSoma challenged HarashiMarufuji to a match at “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. Marufuji isn’t interested in fighting Takao but he can’t turn down the chance to wrestle CIMA for the first time since their Budokan tag match in NOAH way back in 2007!

A Mad Splash from CIMA followed by a Mad Splash from Takao gave the Business Alliance the victory in the 8-Man Tag Match. The bout was Shinya Aoki’s first 8-Man Tag Match and also the return of Mike Bailey to DDT. Aoki found out after the match that his next DDT Extreme Title defence is on 5th April. An opponent has not been decided yet but he would like to face Makoto Oishi in a matchup between Sambo and Judo. Meanwhile The Moonlight Express want to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles so they can claim the shiny new championship belts.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title lineage was fractured into multiple co-champions during the Battle Royal. Before the match even begun, Takanashi pinned Toru Owashi during his entrance to win the belt. Everyone chased Takanashi into the ring so the Rumble style entries were thrown out and a regular Battle Royal began. Owashi & Hiroshi Yamato pinned Takanashi at the same time to they became co-champions. The two of them were then all pinned by Danshoku Dieno, Yukio Naya, Antonio Honda & Mizuki Watase at the same time creating 4 co-champions! Kazuki Hirata had to eliminated each of the 4 co-champions to unify the title back into one whole piece. All of that hard work was taken away when Owashi pinned Hirata after the match to become the champion again.

The debuting Hideki Okatani was pinned in his first match as expected. He was mostly on the defensive against Naomi Yoshimura and also Keigo Nakamura. He was able to do a Northern Lights Suplex after Shunma Katsumata softened Yoshimura up. But a Lariat put Okatani down for the three count. Just like Nakamura, Okatani’s goal is to beat a senior wrestler as soon as possible.

The trainee Jordan Heatley faced Higuchi in the pre-show exhibition match. Heatley tried to put on a Tazzmission but Higuchi instead submitted him with the Canadian Backbreaker. Heatley will make his official debut against Honda on 2nd April.

Yoshiaki Yatsu appeared to introduce the show and also promote his return match at “WRESTLE PETER PAN”.

The 5th opponent in Saki Akai’s “Okibariyasu” trial is Syuri. Akai knows Syuri is a powerful kicker so she is looking forward to comparing them with her own kicks. Their match is on 2nd April.

DDT is holding a Falls Count Anywhere Match inside the Saitama Anzukai Clinic to protect the elderly from the COVID-19. The match on 30th March will be Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Gorgeous Matsuno Vs Shinya Aoki, Makoto Oishi & Gabai Ji-chan.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI KAGUYAHIME ~MIYAKO HOUSE 2020~”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena
108 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Chikara (w/ Mao) defeated Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) with the Saber Chop (19:38).

The show began with a thrilled Miyako Matsumoto and Munenori Sawa announcing today’s Gake no Fuchi Joshi show has sold out with a bigger crowd than the one they had back on Christmas Eve. Sawa mentioned that Sanshiro Takagi couldn’t be here because he was having a meal with the president of AbemaTV. Matsumoto said if anyone in the audience had any complaints about the show, they should still send them to Takagi. The two left the ring then re-entered as part of the athlete’s ceremony. They remembered that the goal for today was to find a bride for Chikara.

The candidates Mao and Ichiho Shirahata entered the ring to meet Chikara. Before the match began, the two candidates faced off in a rap battle. Matsumoto joined in and the three way got too exciting for Chikara to handle. Daisuke Kiso ended the rap battle and asked the fans to choose the winner. Mao won the audience vote.

Next up was one of the regular challenges on these shows, the Kiso Flag Race. Matsumoto and Mao would race from the stage into the ring. The first one to hit Kiso would be the winner However, Mao turned out to be Sawa dressed in the same clothes. Sawa kicked Matsumoto out of the way and hit Kiso to win.

The show took a break for a special presentation of “Chikara Mania”. Darth Chikara came out to fight Ouchi Yoda in a Lightsaber duel. Matsumoto interrupted it and attacked both of them with a baseball bat “rigged to explode” with confetti. The match was ruled a no contest as the room filled with gun smoke.

Next, Metropoli-chan V entered the ring wearing a wedding dress. She was here to enter the contest and become Chikara’s bride. Matsumoto attacked her with the bat too.

Sawa and Chikara had a karaoke contest. Sawa sang “God Of Romance” and Chikara sang “Young Man”. Chikara won the audience vote.

There’s going to be a wrestling match soon. I swear! But first was another special presentation called “Ichiho Mania”. Shirahata and Mao has a Sailor Uniform Girl Showdown that did not feature sailor uniforms. They instead played a game where they had to push a piece of thread through a needle. Neither of them could do it so the game ended in a draw.

The ring announcer Uta Shima then added herself as a bride candidate. Shima and Shirahata both flirted with Chikara by saying different words in either a sexy or cute manner. Kiso judged Shima to be the winner.

When that was over Matsumoto, Mao, Chikara and Shirahata sat together to mimic a TV morning show debate. They talked about how charming Chikara is then started arguing over each other’s cooking skills. A fight was going to break out so Kiso ended the segment before things got violent. Shirahata was declared the winner of the talk show.

It was finally time for Chikara to make his decision. But just when he was about to choose his bride, his father Mitsuo Momota walked out! Even though Momota wants to have grandchildren as soon as possible, he came here today to watch a wrestling match! Matsumoto Vs Chikara was ready to begin, but first there was a 10 minute break.

At last the match happened. Mao got involved by putting Matsumoto in a Cobra Twist. Sawa ran in to rescue her but Chikara got rid of him with a Chop. Matsumoto grabbed Mao’s baseball cap and threw it away which made Chikara furious. Suddenly there were the surprise appearances of ASHUKA and Lingerie Muto! They fought until ASHUKA told everyone she had to fly back home to America. Muto left too and Sawa returned to fight Chikara in a proper wrestling match. Matsumoto used Sawa’s help to get the better of her opponent until Mao interfered again. Sawa went for the Shining Wizard on Chikara but Matsumoto got in the way and took the hit instead. Mao hit Matsumoto with the Saber Chop and Chikara followed up with one of his own to take the victory.

Chikara thanked Mao for teaming with him today. He was about to nominate her to be his bride when suddenly Shirahata’s manager came out. He said there was a violation of the rules. Chikara was not allowed to contact any of the women before the show but proof was shown on screen that Chikara sent a Twitter DM to Shirahata a few days ago! Matsumoto attacked Chikara for breaking the rules. It was then revealed that the kind of person Chikara really wants to marry is a female pro wrestler. That way then can talk about and share the same dream together. He won’t be able to marry Mao, but at least everybody now forgives him for sending the DM. Everyone then sang together to give the audience a happy ending.

6. Current Blast 8-Man Tag Death Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Iino & Yukio Naya defeated Atsushi Onita, Danshoku Dieno, Chris Brookes & MAO when Takeshita pinned Dieno after Dieno was accidentally hit by Onita with a Current Blast Baseball Bat (10:11).

DDT has come to Saitama Super Arena three months early for an empty arena show! The fate of the company was on the line after Danshoku Dieno set off a mutiny in the locker room against Sanshiro Takagi. A DDT Army was formed in retaliation but Takagi was disappointed to find out that only three other people joined his side. They were Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Iino. They met up with Jungle Pocket comedian Shinji Saito inside the arena to start the event. Dieno was there with Super Sasadango Machine & Keigo Nakamura. He was also armed with a current blast baseball bat. It was time to start their battle!

The two sides had their match in the 1st Basement Floor. It quickly moved over to the parking lot. Dieno thrusted a traffic cone into MAO’s backside. MAO then did the same to Dieno. Nakamura gave Iino a Low Blow to avoid the Haka Elbow but Takeshita then used an Atomic Drop to crotch Nakamura on the cone. Everyone did Lip Locks and Iino made Nakamura give up to the Argentine Backbreaker.

Takagi demanded Dieno to give up after the DDT Army defeated his rebellion. Suddenly a white van appeared and ran over Takagi! MAO was the driver and revealed he was a member of the Dieno Army all along! Takagi was thrown into the van and it drove off. The van briefly stopped so Iino would run into it. Takeshita & Saito followed the direction of the van in the hopes of finding Takagi.

Takeshita arrived in a locker room where he found Naomi Yoshimura, Makoto Oishi & Saori Anou hanging around. They revealed they were on Dieno’s side. Eruption then entered the room and offered to help Takeshita, kicking off a 6-Man Tag. The Dieno Army tried to strangle the Eruption wrestlers with phone cords. Kazusada Higuchi lifted a massage table onto himself and used it as full body armour. Saki Akai threw Anou onto another massage table and started attacking her with massages. Yukio Sakaguchi ran across the tables to give Yoshimura a PK while Higuchi submitted Oishi with the Canadian Backbreaker. Eruption then stuffed Oishi into a trash can after he told them where to find Takagi.

Takeshita & Saito next went down the corridor. They did not find Takagi there. Instead DAMNATION were standing around drinking. Daisuke Sasaki told them they were hired by Dieno. Takeshita called over Akito, Mizuki Watase & Royce Chambers to battle DAMNATION straight away. Akito pulled off Tetsuya Endo’s tights and was chased out of the room by him. Endo caught Akito and put him in the Yurikamome Hold to get them back. Soma Takao dragged Watase into a woman’s restroom and dunked his head into a toilet with the Gin And Tonic. Chambers gave Endo a Canadian Destroyer on top of a stack of wooden pallets then Moonsaulted onto everybody below. Watase came out of the restroom with a toilet brush to attack DAMNATION with. Sasaki took it off him and shoved it into Watase’s mouth. The three DAMNATION wrestlers then Power Bombed Watase onto a nearby ladder for the three count. Takeshita asked DAMNATION how much Dieno was paying them. Sasaki said 6,500 yen each including transportation expenses. Takeshita convinced Saito to pay each of them 10,000 yen to find out where Takagi was taken too. DAMNATION pointed them up to the rooftop.

Takeshita, Akito & Chambers ran up the stairs and there on the rooftop was the Dieno Army with Takagi tied to a chair under hostage. Dieno told them they were trapped with his entire army which included Munenori Sawa, Pokotan and the Saitama Super Arena mascot Tamarlin.

The DDT Army held against the ambush. Akito kept everyone at bay with Dragon Screws while Chambers dove onto whoever was in his way. They linked all of the Dieno Army wrestlers together in a Headscissors Chain and Takeshita flipped them all over with the Walls Of Takeshita to make all of them submit.

Takeshita thought the coup was defeated until he found out Takagi was switched with Yoshihiko on the chair during the battle! Saito began to laugh and suddenly attacked Akito & Chambers. He was a Dieno Army spy all along and Takagi is going to be publicly executed by explosion! Takeshita rallied together Iino, Yukio Naya and Shunma Katsumata dressed in his hardcore Joker costume to go rescue Takagi.

But first there was the important matter of the DDT Extreme Title match to get through. Away from the chaos on the rooftop, HARASHIMA and Shinya Aoki were about to have their match in the Community Arena. They took off their shirts to reveal they were both wearing bras underneath. They then placed blindfolds over their eyes. That’s right, the belt was being defended in a Blindfold Hidden Bra Death Match! First wrestler to take off their opponent’s bra while blindfolded wins! With such a large empty room to fight in there was danger of the wrestlers getting lost. But the two wrestlers were able to stay close to each other. HARASHIMA tripped over a board when he went to do the Somato. Aoki’s attempt at a European Clutch was blocked but he was able to put the champion in a Manjigatame and strip off HARASHIMA’s bra to win. Aoki takes back the Extreme Title from HARASHIMA! He celebrated with both of the bras and guessed he will be back in Saitama Super Arena to defend the title in June.

Anyway back to the mutiny. The Dieno Army was about to execute Takagi down at the entrance when Takeshita and the DDT Army arrived to save him. Dieno told them he had one last trump card for them. “Wild Thing” played and out came Atsushi Onita with MAO & Chris Brookes! Dieno joined them for the main event 8-Man Tag. Onita spat red Mist into Naya’s face then gave Katsumata a Piledriver through a table. They recovered and held onto Onita so Takeshita could swing the Current Blast Baseball Bat at him, causing a big explosion. During the chaos, Takagi freed himself from the chair and grabbed the Blast Bat. He tried to hit MAO with it but MAO blocked the swing with a chair, causing the explosion to knock both of them away. Dieno gave Takeshita the Lip Lock then went to get the bat. Katsumata dove towards him but Dieno struck him with the explosive bat in mid-air. Dieno then climbed onto a podium and pulled the back of his tights down. He instructed his army to shove the enemies’ faces into his backside. Everyone resisted so Onita grabbed the Blast Bat. He swung it but Takeshita ducked and the bat struck Dieno’s ass, exploding it in a major way! Takeshita crawled on top of Dieno to pin him, ending the coup once and for all. Or is it?

After the match Saito suggested they do a Current Blast Death Match at the Tokyo headquarters for Yoshimoto Kogyo. Onita liked the idea but attacked Saito to make sure he won’t break his promise. When he left, Takeshita told Dieno the coup was over. But Dieno had a surprise. He isn’t the mastermind. The mastermind is standing over on top of the entrance. Over there was a masked person wearing Dieno’s entrance robe. The person took off the mask to reveal it was Akane Takiyama, one of the AbemaTV announcers who was reporting on the event the whole time! A new Saitama Super Arena legend begins!

A three team battle determined by costume colours was the theme for today’s dojo show. Tetsuya Koda kept the card a mystery outside of match formats until the start of the show. Shota announced each of the matches then revealed the prize for the winning team was tickets to Asakusa Hanayashiki, Japan’s oldest amusement park.

First up was Maki Itoh representing Team Red against Team Blue’s Sena Shiori. Itoh caught Shiori with a DDT off the ropes for the win. Itoh wants to stop wrestling in the dojo because nobody is there to answer her question “Who is the cutest in the world?”

Team Yellow then had their first match and got their first points when Rika Tatsumi beat Mina Shirakawa. Tatsumi tried to trap Shirakawa in the ring apron so she would get counted out but she made it back in at 19. Tatsumi countered the Implant DDT with the Twist Of Fate. She then got the three count with the Missile Hip.

Team Yellow continued their winning ways when Natsumi Maki beat Mahiro Kiryu. Maki pulled Kiryu’s hair to break out of a Crab Hold and did not let go until she was given a Spinebuster. Kiryu ran to the ropes but was caught in the Backlash to suffer another defeat for Team Blue.

Then it was time for something different. The 3 Way Match took place under 5 Rounds lasting 2 minutes each. Every wrestler would begin the match with 3 points. They lose 1 point if they are pinned for a 2 Count or if they submit. From the 2nd Round onward they can lose 1 point if they perform a banned action decided by a Twitter poll. Only the referee knows what the banned action is. The match ends when either all 5 rounds are done or if one wrestler is reduced to 0 points. The winner is whoever has the most points when the match ends. Hyper Misao and Pom Harajuku teamed up to pin Miyu Yamashita for a 2 Count. Yamashita then pinned Harajuku when she Body Slammed Misao on top of her. In Round 2 the banned action was “Speaking English”. Misao lost a point when she called for the Hero Correction System. She didn’t understand why she was penalised until the rule was revealed at the end of the round. In Round 3, Irish Whips off the ropes were illegal. Yamashita lost a point when she whipped Misao off the ropes. The banned move for Round 4 was never revealed because the match ended here. Harajuku lost a point for Irishi Whipping Yamashita off the ropes. Misao tried to strangle Yamashita with her cloak but Yamashita wrapped the cloak over Misao’s head and then kicked her with a High Kick. Yamashita went for the Attitude Adjustment but Harajuku suddenly rolled her over with a School Boy to take away Yamashita’s last point. The match ended and even though Harajuku got the final pin, Misao had one more point than her so she was the winner!

The show went back to normal with the tag match. Okay except for the part where Yuna Manase & Hikari Noa force fed Nodoka Tenma a banana. Noa pinned Suzume with the Uranage to give Team Blue a two match winning streak.

Mirai Maiumi wore similar makeup and clothing as Yuki Kamifuku so they could match together as a team. Shoko Nakajima purposely rubbed the makeup off Maiumi’s face while they wrestled. Kamifuku got revenge by drawing on her opponent’s faces with lipstick. In the end, Nakajima pinned Maiumi with the Northern Lights Suplex. She and Miu Watanabe laughed at each other’s messy faces after the match. Shota said they both looked like Princess Mononoke.

With Team Blue out of the running, the main event was down to Team Red and Team Yellow. Raku got rid of Mizuki, leaving Yuka Sakazaki to fight Yuki Aino. The two scrambled between the Magical Merry-Go-Round and the Venus DDT. Sakazaki took down Aino with a Low-Lying Lariat then hit the Magical Magical Girl Splash to make Team Yellow the overall winners!

The victory ceremony went a little off the rails. Tatsumi wanted to give her theme park pass to Mizuki. Sakazaki attacked Mizuki and suddenly everyone started fighting! Tatsumi yelled that the last ones standing would win the prize as the show finished. Team Yellow eventually got their prize back.
