*Sendai Girls fail in V2. ALL OUT becomes the 39th KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

This has been gearing up for a long time. ALL OUT and the Sendai Girls have battled over the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles twice in the last 12 months. The first time in July 2018 ALL OUT successfully defended the belts then in March of this year Senjo beat them in the rematch to take the championships. Today a final full fledged clash was held. There was five matches between the two sides with the last being for the trios gold. Konosuke Takeshita and Meiko Satomura spoke on behalf of their units at the beginning of the show. Takeshita promised amazing matches and also said he would pin Satomura in their match. Satomura told him to be prepared because her team will show the strength of the Sendai Girls in every match. She also thanked Sakura Hirota for coming in as Mika Iwata’s replacement on short notice.

Hirota was so dedicated to taking up Iwata’s role that she wore handmade Iwata ring gear, covered her face in white makeup, used Iwata’s entrance music, copied her movements and would only answer to her name. She told Akito that she had some trick up her sleeve. It involved removing a turnbuckle pad, getting the DDT trainee Keigo Nakamura involved in the match and attacking Akito’s backside with Kancho butt pokes. What she didn’t expect was for Akito’s rear end to become resistant to the Kancho and also be strong enough to flip her off her feet. Akito did a Kancho of his own then put Hirota in the Figure 4 Leg Lock for the victory. Both Akito and Hirota shook hands while holding onto their butts after the match.

Chairs was placed in the ring before the Hardcore Match between Shunma Katsumata and DASH Chisako began. Chisako quickly armed herself with a bamboo sword to take the early advantage. Katsumata placed a trash can over Chisako and struck her with the cane. He then brought out a box of Lego and spilled it inside the ring. That backfired when he missed a Moonsault and landed on the blocks. Chisako Sunset Power Bombed Katsumata from the top of a ladder, broke a chair over his head and hit the Hormone Splash from the Ladder to get Senjo their first win of the show.

Yuki Iino and Chihiro Hashimoto reignited their power versus power confrontation from the March 6-Man Title bout with a singles match today. When the bell rang they immediately charged each other for Shoulder Blocks. Iino got the upper hand early and went for the Haka Elbow but Hashimoto reversed the moment and did a taunting Elbow Drop of her own. She nearly put Iino away with a Spear followed by a Rolling Senton. Iino turned the tables by avoiding the Albright and hitting a Backflip followed by the Haka Elbow for a nearfall. Hashimoto recovered and got Iino in the Albright Suplex, getting the three count and two wins in a row for Senjo.

The last match to take place before the championship main event was between the two team leaders. Takeshita and Satomura went hell for leather on each other. Satomura put Takeshita through a table with a Death Valley Bomb from the ring apron to the outside. She brought him back in the ring to hit the move more times but that gave Takeshita a moment to give Satomura the Blue Thunder Bomb. With only a twenty minute time limit given, the final seconds saw Takeshita do a German Suplex only for Satomura to absorb the blow and hit the Scorpio Rising before the bell rang. Both of them were spent but still had one match left to take part in.

ALL OUT waited until just before the title match began to announce which three of them would be challenging for the 6-Man Tag Titles. It was Takeshita, Katsumata & Iino. While there was a variety of different pairings throughout, the finish involved the same three matchups presented earlier in the show. Katsumata took out Chisaki with the ¡Hasta la vista!, Iino got rid of Hashimoto with the Spear and Takeshita pinned Satomura with the German Suplex to crown new 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

The Sendai Girls were about to leave defeated when Takeshita called out to them on the microphone. He said they just had an unprecedented series of matches between men and women that ended with both sides getting two wins, two losses and a draw. He asked if they will continue this challenge someday. Satomura thanked DDT and ALL OUT for accepting today’s showdown since the Senjo fans were also looking forward to it. The show ended with Takeshita thanking everyone for supporting DDT and Sendai Girls.

6. The First BOYZ For Being BOYZ Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Makoto Oishi & Akito when Takanashi pinned Oishi with the Hangover!! (11:03).

Everybody in the main event wanted to put on the best match possible because it’s been so long since the last BOYZ show. Makoto Oishi dodged the Somato from HARASHIMA. That gave Akito an opening to hit HARASHIMA with an upper Knee Strike. Oishi then put HARASHIMA in the Jikiden Tornado Clutch but Masahiro Takanashi swooped in and pinned Oishi with the Hangover!! cradle out of nowhere.

Sanshiro Takagi came out at the end of the show. He said today was he first BOYZ show in over a year and eight months. He asked the fans if they wanted the BOYZ brand to come back on a more regular basis. When the audience of women applauded, Takagi chose Akito as the new BOYZ producer. Akito is now responsible for everything BOYZ related. He was surprised by the news but says it is a good opportunity for him to create something new, both for BOYZ and for himself.

Keisuke Ishii knocked out Kazuki Hirata with the Kneel Kick. He apologised to the fans who were hoping to see Hirata dance. To make up for it he put on the Hirata GO! glasses and did a dance. He then put the glasses on Hirata’s head and lifted his unconscious body to the rhythm of the music until he got bored.

“Summer Date” was the theme for the show. During the show opening introductions each wrestler dressed in an outfit they thought was suitable for a summer date. Shunma Katsumata had some dogs with him, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda wore Disney merch for a double date in Disney Land, Ishii wore a Seibu Lions jersey for a date at the Seibu Dome, Hirata wore swimming trunks, both MAO and Nobuhiro Shimatani were dressed for bug catching and Yukio Sakaguchi wore a lucha mask because his idea is to have a pro wrestling date.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “LAST DANCE IS FOR ME 2019”, 17/07/2019

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura (c) Vs Hiroshi Yamato

For a man as well traveled in the Japanese scene as Hiroshi Yamato, the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title would be the perfect symbol to represent his status. Yamato believes he can raise the prestige of the championship by defending it across the 50-ish promotions he has wrestled for.

A retired Guts World championship is being resurrected for the feud between GPW and True GUTS-gun. This was Ken Ohka’s idea because he is becoming more and more hungry to be a champion again. Also the high stakes of a title match shows which wrestlers are the ones with real guts.

The newly created P.P.P. Tokyo gets a warm up against one of Ganpro’s best.

4. HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Makoto Oishi, Kota Umeda & Yukio Naya when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (9:37).
5. Daisuke Sasaki Marunage Match ~ Nerima Japan Wrestling Raising An Army Series 3rd Round In Kasukabe: Nerima Sting defeated Kodaira Sting with the Scorpion Deathlock (10:57).
6. I Am A Popular Man! Two Big Singles Match: Soma Takao defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Sorarina (11:09).
7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takeshita pinned Endo with a Crucifix Pin (16:23).

It was a bad day for Tetsuya Endo. First he was pinned by his enemy Konosuke Takeshita. An attempt to do a Handspring off the ropes was caught by Takeshita and turned into a Crucifix Pin for the unexpected three count. Then after the match Sanshiro Takagi entered the ring and gave Endo a Stunner. Hisaya Imabayashi asked if this meant Takagi was going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Takagi declined and said he only did it to tease Endo. When he left Endo said he will smash Takagi whenever he ues his title shot. And at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” when everyone is expecting him to be at 200% power, he will instead be at 300% power! When Endo left the ring, Takeshita gave the last word. He asked the audience if they wanted to see Takeshita Vs Takagi at Ota Ward? Only one person applauded. He then asked if they would rather have Takeshita Vs Endo? Most of the audience applauded. Finally Takeshita promised that if Endo is fighting at 300%, then he will be at 350%!

Soma Takao used a distraction with the referee to block Naomi Yoshimura’s Shonenba. Takao then kicked Yoshimura below the belt and pinned him with the Sorarina. Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno have said they will never forgive Takao for kicking both of them in the nuts during matches!

With Daisuke Sasaki out of action with food poisoning, Nerima Sting needed a new opponent. One was found from a nearby city, Kodaira Sting! Their match was interrupted by the surprise appearance of Man Man Kai Kind! He gave both Stings the Mandible Claw then left. Yukinori Matsui was later knocked out by a Nerima Stinger Splash which led to another surprise appearance. This time it was Dildo Love! Nerima easily got rid of him with the Scorpion Death Drop. Kodaira tried to put Nerima in the Scorpion Deathlock but Man Man Kai Kind reappeared to give him another Mandible Claw. Nerima then reversed the Scorpion Deathlock for the win.

The pairings of Yukio Naya and Kazusada Higuchi as well as Yukio Sakaguchi and Kota Umeda were provoking each other during Match #4. The two pairs have singles matches at Korakuen Hall on 30th June. Makoto Oishi encouraged Naya and Umeda to show their fire in those matches.

The match between Toru Owashi and Antonio Honda went off the rails when a chair was brought in. Honda placed the chair on top of Owashi then when he climbed the turnbuckles, Daisuke Kiso counted to three and declared the chair to be the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion! The match continued but with the chair still in the ring. A sudden game of musical chairs began and Kiso joined in. He sat on the chair when the music stopped and Yukinori Matsui then counted to three. Now Kiso is the Iron Man champion! Honda tried to use Gongistune on Kiso but Kiso used his own Gongitsune, tangling the two of them up in nipple pinches. Owashi gave them a double School Boy and Matsui counted the pin on both. That means Owashi pinned Honda to win the match and he also pinned Kiso to win back the title.

Asuka ignored Akito’s requests for a handshake before their match then booted him in the head after it was over. Akito’s thought process over their DDT Extreme Title match is an interview where Asuka said she can do anything. So Akito wants to use a match stipulation that Asuka has never been in before.

5. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when Sasaki submitted Ueno with the Cross Facelock (13:56).
6. The World’s Most Healthy Numazu Specialty! Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Akito pinned Paulie with an Inside Cradle (14:43).

Things were looking bleak for ALL OUT when for the second show in a row Tetsuya Endo threw Konosuke Takeshita over the top rope from the Torture Rack position to the outside. However Akito was the legal man and he successfully rolled Mad Paulie into an Inside Cradle to win the match out of nowhere. Endo still ran down Takeshita on the microphone. He’s gone past Yukio Sakaguchi, Keisuke Ishii and Makoto Oishi in his KO-D Openweight Title run so far. At Ota Ward Gymnasium Endo promises he will be at his maximum strength. Takeshita’s response is he will increase his own power levels on the road to “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. He will be at 120% when they wrestle at Kasukabe Hall next week then by the time they make it to Ota Ward he will be at 200%!

Takeshita also warned Endo about Sanshiro Takagi waiting for his chance to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Takagi came out and told Endo he wasn’t cashing in today. He is instead acting mature and being patient. Akito closed out the show by promoting ALL OUT’s KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot against the Sendai Girls and also his next DDT Extreme Title defence.

Daisuke Sasaki continued to attack Yuki Ueno after their match. Naomi Yoshimura came to the rescue and scared off Sasaki. A chair was thrown into the ring by Sasaki but Yoshimura threw it back at him.

At first the new team Big Boss Express looked good together. Sanshiro Takagi used a marker to scribble on Hiroshi Yamato’s back while MAO attacked Shunma Katsumata with an umbrella. The match went outside where MAO stacked Yamato & Katsumata on a table and Takagi jumped off a van to splash through them. MAO held his opponents up while Takagi got in the van and drove towards them. Yamato & Katsumura broke free and got out of the way. MAO didn’t move in time and was hit by the van! He was then pinned right there on the road. Yamato & Katsumura returned to the ring after the match to sing a victory song.

Sakaguchi and Oishi bowed to each other after their match. Oishi can rest easily knowing that he isn’t on Sakaguchi’s kill list.

A Choke Slam from Yukio Naya put Kota Umeda down long enough for Masahiro Takanashi to grab the win. Naya and Kazusada Higuchi both said they had fun fighting each other and are looking forward to a singles match together.

Match #2 featured a lot of teased kissing spots. Yoshimura was left frozen for a kiss from Nobuhiro Shimatani that never came. He didn’t snap out until well after the match was over.

Yoshiaki Yatsu, Joey Ryan, Chris Brookes and Mike Bailey will be on the show.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda Vs X
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

It was announced today that Kota Umeda will be leaving DDT when his contract ends on 21st July. The reason is Umeda will be concentrating on working for his family’s business in his home of Kumamoto. The 24 year old will not be able to wrestle while carrying this responsibility. His family is important to him so he is choosing them over pro wrestling. Umeda originally asked to retire as a wrestler but Sanshiro Takagi convinced him to resign from DDT instead. Umeda is so young that he may find the opportunity to wrestle again somewhere down the line. For example DDT runs a show in Kumamoto once a year (this year’s show is coming up in August) so maybe that spot could always be available for him to wrestle in front of his home crowd. Umeda is grateful to Takagi for the advice he gave him and promises to do his best for the last two months of his contract.

Hideki Suzuki, Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio, Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey will be on the show.
