6. Beer Garden Specialty King Of DDT 2018 Customer Lottery 8-Man Tag Match: Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo when Hirata pinned MAO with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (18:41).

The annual Fan Lottery tag match gave us HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi in the main event. Sasaki and Endo wanted to start the match in a neutral corner together but Endo’s teammates had to drag him over to their side of the ring. Sasaki and Endo did end up working together until Bailey & MAO wiped them out with the Skylab Hurricance. Hirata rolled out of the way from MAO’s Cannonball 450. That gave Sakaguchi the chance to hit the God’s Right Knee to MAO and Hirata rolled him into the Miracle Cradle for the three count.

Hirata celebrated and once more showed that the “small fish” in this year’s King Of DDT is on a miracle run! The DDT roster was brought out to the ring for a last round of drinks together along with some dancing. Sanshiro Takagi promoted the busy schedule for the rest of the year. We have the next “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” in two days time, there are trips to Nagoya and Osaka, there are the monthly Korakuen Hall shows, there is the Dramatic General Election in September and finally of course there is Sumo Hall on 21st October.

Danshoku Dieno, Saki Akai, Toru Owashi and Yasu Urano were given 3 minutes to finish their match before Hisaya Imabayashi could tell his scary story. This was Ueno’s first time taking part in the tradition and he told everyone he had trained himself not to get scared. When Imabayashi came out something strange happened. There was the spirit of a dead child (Yuni) piggybacking on him! Everybody could see him except for Imabayashi and Ueno. Imabayashi was feeling too ill to notice anything while Ueno’s training was turning out to be effective. Ueno convinced Imabayashi to increase the match time limit to 5 minutes. The match went on as normal until the child decided to get in the way and scare all of the wrestlers, except for Ueno who tried not to notice him. The time elapsed and the bell rang so Imabayashi could start his story.

However midway through the story Imabayashi broke into a coughing fit. Dieno suggested he should take a rest and leave. It turned out to be a ruse and Imabayashi made Dieno faint by pointing at him and shouting “It’s you!” He then did it to Ueno, then Akai, then Owashi and finally Yukinori Matsui. Imabayashi then brought out his Atsushi Onita impression and spat water into the audience while “Wild Thing” played. The child spirit joined in until Imabayashi collapsed and died. The lights went out and a spotlight shined over the child…

“I wonder who is next… It’s you!”

Match #3 was in jeopardy when Makoto Oishi came out in his casual clothes and a backpack. He told everyone he came out to say goodbye because he is quitting DDT! Oishi blamed Takagi for burning him out with useless jobs. One example was Takagi making Oishi collect 60 flashlight pens the night before the Tokyo Idol Festival only to never use them at the wrestling matches held there. Takagi also took Oishi’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet from him recently. Super Sasadango Machine offered to hand over his Gauntlet to Oishi but it was turned down out of principal. Oishi isn’t going to team with Takagi today because he is quitting! Sasadango & Nobuhiro Shimatani came up with an idea. Oishi can team with them so they can all beat up Takagi instead. The match went ahead and turned into a crazy mess of slams onto beer cans and plastic cases. The numbers game was too much for Takagi and Oishi pinned him to get his revenge. Oishi’s opinion on everything suddenly changed. DDT is the best! Takagi is the best boss a guy can have! Oishi would do anything for him. We are Dramatic Dream Team!

Antonio Honda went down with a sudden case of love sickness so A.YAZAWA was brought in to replace him in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match. YAZAWA and Kazusada Higuchi danced and drank the night away to different songs until they fell asleep. Matsui almost counted them out when “Thriller” played and the two rose up to dance like zombies. This continued on until Higuchi pinned YAZAWA.

The Naomi Kingdom look to be making themselves comfortable in DDT after a win over RENEGADES.

Kota Umeda is back from injury and made his return in the 4 Way Tag Match. Everybody agreed to make the match No Tag rules so everyone was free to swap out when they wanted to.

And with that, Fighting Beer Garden 2018 has ended! I need a drink.


YAROZ “YAROZ PART 5” Results

July 13, 2017

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 5”, 13/07/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
244 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. YaroZ Vs Mote Mote-gun Total Competition! Opening Match: Akito defeated Gota Ihashi with a Modified Omoplata (9:03).
2. WWF (World Wide Fundoshi) Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Joey Ryan defeated Manabu Soya & Hoshitango when Ryan pinned Hoshitango with the Super Kick (10:22).
3. YaroZ Specialty! Undress Wrestling 2017: Danshoku Dino defeated Dai Suzuki by Pinfall (6:07).
4. Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match: A.YAZAWA (w/ Kaori from The Bed Inn Girls) defeated Ryuichi Sekine (w/ Mai-chan from the Bed Inn Girls) with a Sunset Flip (13:37).
5. YaroZ Vs Mote Mote-gun Total Competition! Final Settlement: Kazusada Higuchi, Toru Owashi, Rocky Kawamura & Ken Ohka defeated Makoto Oishi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Mizuki Watase & Shigehiro Irie when Higuchi pinned Oishi with the YaroZ Bomb (9:52).

The YaroZ were in a lot of trouble when it was time for the main event. Midway through the show the hated Mote Mote-gun demanded that the main event change from 3 Vs 3 to 4 Vs 4. They then tempted Shigehiro Irie to be their 4th man, promising he would get to meet super famous G-cup gravure models if he joined them. Irie told Kazusada Higuchi he would not leave because he is a Yaro. He hugged Higuchi then suddenly gave him a Sister Abigail. Irie tore off his shirt and joined the Mote Mote-gun! The YaroZ would now go into the main event with a 2 Vs 4 disadvantage.

Higuchi & Toru Owashi were ready to fight despite being outnumbered. But help came when Ken Ohka appeared. It was now 3 Vs 4 until Rocky Kawamura came out to even the numbers. Higuchi tried to knock some sense into Irie so he would snap out and go back to normal. It didn’t work and soon Irie looked like he was going to attack his friend with a chair. The Bed Inn Girls ran in and begged him not to do it. Makoto Oishi scared them away and held Higuchi so Irie would hit him with the Beast Bomber. Irie wound up his arm but stopped himself when the H-cup “Goddess of YaroZ” Tsukasa Wachi walked out on the ramp wearing a swimsuit. She called out to Irie and asked him to return to his usual lovely self. Oishi panicked and demanded Irie hit the Beast Bomber. Irie bounced off the ropes and did the move… on Oishi! He wiped out the rest of the Mote Mote-gun while Higuchi pinned Oishi with the YaroZ Bomb to end the match. The YaroZ thanked Wachi for using her talents to turn Irie back to normal. Irie was sorry for his behaviour and also thanked Wachi. He asked her for her LINE address but she said she doesn’t have one. He then asked her out but she sheepishly said she had a photoshoot to go to and quickly left the ring. The Bed Inn Girls also said they don’t have LINE accounts but they both kissed Irie on the cheeks to cheer him up.

The Bed Inn Girls joined in to dance and tease with A.YAZAWA and Ryuichi Sekine during the Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match. They wore bikinis until they changed into gowns during the last song. Oddly enough this aroused the wrestlers more than when they were wearing less.

The stakes were high in the match between Dai Suzuki and Danshoku Dino. If Suzuki won then Wachi would promise to strip down to her swimsuit. But if Dino won then Yuki Ueno would have to strip completely naked. Luckily for Ueno, everyone on the YaroZ side did not want him to lose and did almost everything they could to prevent it from happening. Yukinori Matsui counted slow whenever Dino had Suzuki pinned and fast when Suzuki pinned Dino. He also kept Suzuki’s arm up while Dino sent him to sleep with a Sleeper Hold then carried Suzuki like a puppet to try and make him fight back. Dino knocked out Matsui with a Lip Lock and called in Daisuke Kiso to keep the match fair. But when he counted Dino’s pin, Higuchi pulled Kiso out of the ring and all of the YaroZ gathered around to stomp on him. The YaroZ then ganged up on Dino but he snuck a Cradle on Suzuki and Yuya Okada appeared out of nowhere to make the three count. A victorious Dino chased after Ueno while an angry Matsui gave Okada a Backbreaker. The chaos stopped when Wachi appeared and said she didn’t want everyone fighting over her. She then stripped down to her swimsuit and everyone was happy. Except for Ueno.

The World Wide Fundoshi match was taken very seriously. Everyone involved in the match had to wear a fundoshi. Even the referee and the cameraman! Sanshiro Takagi demanded it because the rules of this match are sacred.

Akito insulted both Gota Ihashi and the audience before the first match. He said Ihashi came from a pig farm and the audience were supporting him because of self-projection. In the match itself, Ihashi missed a Moonsault and gave up to an Arm Trap Omoplata afterwards. Despite the mean words said at the start, Akito shook Ihashi’s hand when the match was over.

8. Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie defeated HARASHIMA & Yukio Sakaguchi when Irie pinned HARASHIMA with the Vertical Drop Back Flip (13:40).

DDT’s first music festival put together a mixture of pro wrestling and pop music concerts. There were many, many, many musical acts performing throughout the day so I’m just going to focus on the wrestling portion of the show.

ddtfes-double-german

The main event was Shigehiro Irie’s first match back in DDT since he left for an American excursion back in July. Irie teamed with Konosuke Takeshita to take on HARASHIMA & Yukio Sakaguchi. Irie’s time away wrestling in another country looks to have paid off because he ended up beating one of the headliners for “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2016”! He and Takeshita celebrated by inviting musician Kenji Ohtsuki into the ring. Irie requested for Ohtsuki to make him a new entrance song. Ohtsuki said if Sanshiro Takagi is willing to pay him an exorbitant price, he can get to working on the song.

ddtfes-anywhere

Kota Ibushi also returned to DDT for a big 8-Man Tag Team Falls Count Anywhere match against DAMNATION. This was Ibushi and Daisuke Sasaki’s first match together since they were part of the Golden☆Storm Riders. The match began away from the ring and near the stage. In fact, NωA were on stage ready to perform their new song when the other wrestlers came by and literally kicked them off the stage to continue their match. Ibushi and Mad Paulie squared off by spraying each other with cola. The match then spread over to a nearby swimming pool. Paulie intercepted Takagi’s Combat Bicycle but wound up cycling into the pool. Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo then Suplexed Ibushi in with Gota Ihashi joining when he tried to stop them. Back near the ring Endo Moonsaulted from a handrail while Sasaki and Ibushi fought up to a second floor balcony. Sasaki grabbed Ibushi’s arm, stood on the balcony and did the Jinsei Shinzaki rope walk across the rail! Meanwhile Kazusada Higuchi jumped off the VIP seat area to splash Paulie through a table! Shuji Ishikawa directed the match back to the ring where he fought with Takagi. Eventually Ihashi found himself in a 1 Vs 4 predicament against all of DAMNATION. He had no chance and was given the Splash Mountain followed by the Sky Twister Press to end a chaotic match. Surprisingly it turns out Sasaki and Ibushi still get along. Sasaki said it’s been a year since they last saw each other and he didn’t know what Ibushi was up to until he checked the internet. Meanwhile he conquered DDT with the kingdom of DAMNATION. Sasaki wished Ibushi the best and they shook hands.

ddtfes-rocknroll

Antonio Honda was sidelined with love-sickness and unable to compete. Luckily A.YAZAWA was brought in to replace him. YAZAWA was accompanied by the Bed Inn Girls while Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi had Akira Shimizu in his corner. It was a Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match where everyone had to stop wrestling and dance whenever music was played. The Bed Inn Girls stripped down to their swimsuits to distract Hiroshi but Shimizu’s own music then played. His live singing made Hiroshi concentrate and win the match.

ddtfes-dish

The members of DISH// helped fight off Danshoku Dino with Dropkicks after Match #5. Dino claimed before the show that one of the band would betray the others. The guilty party admitted to this and ran off being chased by the others.

ddtfes-takayama-dance

Throughout the show NωA’s musical performance kept on getting interrupted. Not only did the Falls Count Anywhere match push them away but Yoshihiro Takayama’s entrance cut off their original set too. NωA declared they will finally sing their new song after they beat Takayama’s team. That didn’t happen. Instead Kazuki Hirata placed his HIRATA GO! glasses on Takayama and the giant gave Big Boots to all NωA members on route to victory. However there was a happy ending for NωA. At the very end of the show they came out and got to sing their new song “Going My ωay!! ~You Are Not Alone~”.

ddtfes-manjigatame

The wrestlers in Match #3 were all at the mercy of the Kinnikuman character Stecase King. He was the DJ for the match and would play different theme songs throughout the match. The wrestlers were powerless to the music and found themselves mimicking the wrestlers associated with the famous theme songs. Kikutaro transformed into Stan Hansen and Jumbo Tsuruta while Yoshihiko became a shoot wrestler when the UWF Theme was played. It then did some high flying spots during “Sky High”. The match ended when “Honō no Fighter” came on and everyone on KUDO’s team applied the Manjigatame to their opponents until they submitted.

ddtfes-cherry-matsuno

Gorgeous Matsuno tried to be a leader and told LiLiCo he would teach their opponents “the rigours of professional wrestling”. That was easier said than done. Cherry was in a sour mood and told Guanchulo to kill the “old hag” LiLiCo. Some miscommunication caused Cherry and Guanchulo to hit each other and Matsuno caught Guanchulo in a School Boy to win.

ddtfes-ladybeard-leaves

Toru Owashi, Saki Akai & Nobuhiro Shimatani came out with new looks to fit in with the band Kameleo in the opener. Their opponents came out looking macho because they were accompanied by the Macho 29. Lady Beard had to leave early to go prepare for a live NHK interview so the Macho 29 team had to fight a 2 Vs 3 disadvantage. Sanshiro Takagi eventually came to the rescue to big fanfare but an accidental Lariat to Seiya Morohashi cost them the match.
