5. Road To Ultimate Party 2019! Special 8-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Akito, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Asuka when Takao pinned Katsumata with the Diving Foot Stomp onto chairs (14:35).
6. DDT Megatonweight Single Match: Yukio Naya defeated Cody Hall with a Back Drop (14:10).
7. Road To Ultimate Party 2019! Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Toru Owashi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when HARASHIMA pinned Iino with the Somato (20:21).

HARASHIMA thanked a “scary” Toru Owashi for helping get their team the win. HARASHIMA also assured everyone his body is alright even if he still feels a little pain. For now his aim is to win all of the warm up matches left before Sumo Hall.

The bad tension between Yukio Naya and Cody Hall became water under the bridge after their singles match. Naya won the match but offered to shake Hall’s hand afterwards. When Hall went along with it Naya asked him to form a team together. Naya also told everyone he wants to take part in the “BAKUHA KOSHIEN 2019” show happening next month. He’s been in DDT for six months and there is so much he wants to learn including Current Blast death matches.

Chairs were brought into play for the 8-Person Tag Match. Daisuke Sasaki threw one into the ring when the referee was distracted. Shunma Katsumata intercepted the chair from Soma Takao but Sasaki got into the ring with another one and hit Katsumata from behind. Takao continued with the chair attacks until he piled the chairs on top of Katsumata. Takao then finished him off with a Diving Foot Stomp onto the pile. Sasaki told the ALL OUT wrestlers to get ready for more hardcore wrestling at Sumo Hall. He then asked Akito if he wants to change his tag partner before then. Backstage Akito agreed that his partner should be changed. His partner is still Katsumata but now it is the hardcore version of Katsumata!

Yukio Sakaguchi is left wondering about what his weaknesses are in the run up to the D-Ou Grand Prix. He lost to Jiro Kuroshio when he missed the God’s Right Knee, crashed into the turnbuckles and got rolled up in a School Boy. Kuroshio on the other hand is pleased to have won against such a killer wrestler today. He feels a bit prouder going into his match with Tetsuya Endo on 27th October.

For a brief moment Nobuhiro Shimatani was sent to sleep by Isami Kodaka. When he woke back up the match was over but that didn’t stop Shimatani attacking Kodaka and dropping him with a Fisherman Suplex. He yelled that the problem between them can’t end like this.

The team of Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita went through three matches so they could find their groove together. They lost the first two matches because Yamashita kept falling for Honda’s fake injuries. Honda had to explain to her that he fakes his injuries so his opponents drop their guard and he can hit them with the Gongitsune. She finally understood and joined in with Honda’s story in the third match. Together with all of the wrestlers from the previous matches, they formed the Gonvengers and successfully launched an attack on Kazuki Hirata. Afterwards Hirata tried to knock out Yamashita with a chop but she blocked it with her chin. Yamashita then hit Hirata with the Crash Rabbit Heat and Honda followed with the Diving Fist Drop to get the team their first win.

Keigo Nakamura’s debut match had the expected result but he was met with respect from Naomi Yoshimura. He got some offence in with a Takedown from behind, a Missile Dropkick and a series of Middle Kicks until some Lariats from Yoshimura put him away.

Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino from Tokyo Joshi Pro announced that they will be entering the Gauntlet Tag match at Sumo Hall! They said if The Steiner Brothers won’t be there then The Bakuretsu Sisters will come out instead!

Cram everything in there!

At the end of Chris Brookes’s first tour with DDT he formed a tag team with Masahiro Takanashi called Calamari Drunken Kings. With Brookes coming in for a new tour the team are immediately setting their sights on the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Another new team have also wanted a title shot. That team is the Nautilus duo of Ueno & Yoshimura. The solution is a No. 1 Contenders match! The winners get whatever remains of the 4 Way Tag Title match from Sumo Hall.

There is unfinished business between Jiro Kuroshio and Tetsuya Endo. Part of the reason Kuroshio lost the DDT Extreme Title to HARASHIMA was because he focused too much on Endo in the 3 Way Match. Kuroshio then pinned Endo at last weekend’s show in Sapporo. Endo said that result doesn’t matter because it was in a tag match. They will get a singles match to settle the matter.

*V2 for ALL OUT.

Yesterday Naomi Yoshimura pinned Yuki Iino in a tag match. Today Iino got his win back and made sure the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles stay with ALL OUT. After the match Iino asked Yoshimura to shake his hand and joked “No side, no side.” Yoshimura hit him with a Lariat in response. Iino wanted to hit back but figured out his mistake. The “No Side” term doesn’t exist in pro wrestling like it does in rugby. He threw the idea of a rematch with Yoshimura. Speaking of rematches, Konosuke Takeshita told HARASHIMA to get ready because the days are counting down to Sumo Hall. They could even do more ALL OUT Vs DISASTER BOX rematches to prepare.

Kouki Iwasaki explained to the fans that he used to live with Tetsuya Endo so he knows all of his strengths and weaknesses. That knowledge wasn’t enough and Endo was left standing as the winner.

Antonio Honda did something unthinkable to Jiro Kuroshio. He pulled off his jacket! Honda put the jacket on himself but somehow it got his arms all tangled up when he wound up for the Bionic Elbow. Kuroshio knocked him down with a Super Kick and pinned him with the Swanton Bomb before getting his jacket back.

*Jiro Kuroshio fails in V2. HARASHIMA becomes the 47th DDT Extreme Champion!

The stage is now set for DDT’s Ultimate Party in Sumo Hall this November. HARASHIMA was the last man standing in the Survival 3 Way match, eliminating both Jiro Kuroshio and Tetsuya Endo to win the DDT Extreme Title! Kuroshio was the first man eliminated when the numbers game overwhelmed him. He blocked Endo’s Shooting Star Press and dropped him with the Implant. But when he pinned Endo it left him vulnerable for HARASHIMA to hit him with the Somato. Everyone was surprised to see the champion eliminated first! Endo went into full on attack mode against HARASHIMA but after weeks of insults, HARASHIMA finally proved he can still beat Endo when he pinned him with the Somato.

HARASHIMA thanked the fans for their support because they are the reason he won today. He told Kuroshio it is okay if he is going to America or if he is staying in Japan. He’ll always be waiting to see him again. Konosuke Takeshita was then brought down from the broadcast table to confirm the main event for “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is between him and HARASHIMA for both the KO-D Openweight Title and the DDT Extreme Title. Takeshita said he is surprised to face HARASHIMA again. He beat him for the KO-D Title in Saitama Super Arena two years ago which was when the previous era of DDT moved towards the current era. HARASHIMA told Takeshita that he has never forgotten that match. He knows Takeshita is both young and in perfect physical condition but he can still stand against him! He ended by saying all of the DDT brands will gather together at Sumo Hall to deliver a great show.

The power of rugby was on ALL OUT’s side especially since this show was happening the day after Japan defeated Ireland in the Rugby World Cup (Editor’s note: boo!). Yuki Iino entered the ring in almost full rugby gear taken from the No Side Game TV drama he worked on. But Daisuke Sasaki was in the same mindset and when the bell rang he rugby tackled Iino! Sasaki attacked him with chairs until Iino stopped him with his own rugby tackle Spear. However Iino’s rugby tactics backfired when he missed another Spear and tackled Daisuke Kiso by accident. Soma Takao blinded Iino with red Mist and sent him Spearing Akito out of the match. Takao dropped Iino with the Gin And Tonic then Sasaki applied the Cross Facelock. Iino tried to fight out by summoning power from his rugby ball but he eventually tapped out.

Sasaki yelled that just because Japan defeated Ireland in rugby doesn’t mean that Iino could beat DAMNATION in pro wrestling! He called out for any new team to challenge them. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo from BASARA came out. Sasaki asked if they were at the show. FUMA said that the BASARA roster has a plan to win all of DDT’s championships before BASARA splits off and becomes independent. FUMA challenged DAMNATION and also demanded it to be a Hardcore Match! Before Sasaki could answer, two men walked out wearing bags over their heads. They pulled the bags off to reveal it was Minoru Fujita & Daiki Shimomura! They like the idea of a Hardcore Match and asked to make it a 3 Way Tag. Shunma Katsumata then got in the ring and said he should be in the match because he is DDT’s hardcore wrestler! Akito agreed to be his tag partner because he wants to wrestle the BASARA guys. Sasaki accepted all of the challenges so the KO-D Tag Team Titles are being defended in a Hardcore 4 Way Tag Match at Sumo Hall!

Takeshita went into his match against Asuka with his lower back heavily taped up. Two days before the show he suffered a back injury from weightlifting. It effected his performance with limited movement after leap frogs and back pain preventing him from doing the German Suplex. Asuka took advantage but couldn’t beat Takeshita with the Swinging Choke Slam. Takeshita blocked the Moonsault with his knees and countered a cradle with one of his own for a flash three count on Asuka. The result left Asuka annoyed because she went into the match without any injuries and couldn’t beat a less than 100% Takeshita.

You’re never too old to succeed. Just ask Gorgeous Matsuno. At first things were going badly for him against Sanshiro Takagi. He missed the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow and had his left arm targeted from there. Matsuno would have chances to turn the tables but kept missing his signature Elbow Drop. Desperate, Matsuno took out powder and threw it. Unfortunately he didn’t realise that Daisuke Kiso was standing in front of him, not Takagi. With the ref blind, Takagi brought in chairs and plastic boxes to use as weapons. He lifted Matsuno up for the Himawari Bomb but something unexpected happened. Matsuno countered it into a Frankensteiner that sent Takagi crashing into the cases. Matsuno then rolled up Takagi into the School Boy and won the match! The new O-40 Champion told everyone he never gave up on his dream even at 58 years old. But today is not the end of his story. Matsuno’s dream will continue and he wants to share his dreams, courage and energy with everybody!

Cody Hall and Yukio Naya continue to be at each other’s throats, targeting each other in the 4 Way Tag. There was no such problems between Hiroshi Yamato & Mad Paulie. Paulie watched on while Yamato sang his way down to the ring. Antonio Honda tricked Naomi Yoshimura into hitting Yuki Ueno with a Lariat. Hall then picked up the pieces and beat Ueno with the Thunder Buster. Naya tried to get back in the ring to continue fighting Hall but Makoto Oishi held him back on the apron.

Masahiro Takanashi pinned Mizuki Watase to win his tag match with MAO but his thoughts are entirely on Sumo Hall. He challenges Ryuichi Sekine for the Union MAX Title at “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” and he isn’t happy that Sekine referred to him under his old ring name Masa Takanashi. Takanashi thinks that means Sekine has only seen him in DDT and is not aware of his work on the independent scene. He will teach Sekine who Masahiro Takanashi really is!

The mysterious letter that was sent to the DDT office during the week left some of the roster spooked. The wrestlers in the opening match gathered together in the locker room before the show to receive amulets that would protect them from any supernatural threats. Everyone except for Kazuki Hirata. He didn’t believe there was anything to worry about. But when the first match took place and Hirata wore his Hirata GO! glasses, his music was replaced with cries of “Help me…” The demon Saki emerged and entered the ring. She bit Hirata on the shoulder causing the match to get called off. Saki then chased everyone out of the ring and a message appeared on the screen saying “Let’s play a game…”

There was no waiting until Sumo Hall to get an inter-brand match. Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Takato Nakano in a DDT Vs BASARA pre-show match. Nakano was angry he lost after recently becoming one third of the UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Champions. Shimatani on the other hand is now so confident, he wants to fight Isami Kodaka!

Trainee Keigo Nakamura was given exciting news to start the show. He will have his official debut match on 19th October! Naomi Yoshimura will be his opponent but Yoshimura wasn’t impressed by Nakamura’s size. He thinks Nakamura can’t fight him with such a skinny body. Yoshimura placed down a weighing scale and got Nakamura to weigh himself. He weighs 72kg. Actually it was 71.1kg and that was with Nakamura wearing clothes. Yoshimura told Nakamura to reach 75kg before their match.

Kazusada Higuchi gave an update on his PCL injury. He is out of action for the rest of the year and will do his best to rehabilitate and return next year.

The final part of the show was a video message from Kenny Omega promoting his match with Riho against Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita at Sumo Hall. Omega said he is nervous about the match but also looking forward to it.

The D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 competitors are Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Some Takao, Yukio Sakaguchi, Yuki Ueno, Naomi Yoshimura, Yuki Iino, Keisuke Ishii, Bull James, Chris Brookes, Masato Tanaka and Chihiro Hashimoto!

The KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles (remember them?) have been vacated because the champions have not defended the belts since November 2017. New champions will be crowned at Sumo Hall in a match between teams captained by Danshoku Dieno and Super Sasadango Machine.

Yamanashi Natureland Om
80 Fans

0. Exhibition Match: Shunma Katsumata defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Texas Clover Hold (6:21).
1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno, HARASHIMA, Antonio Honda & Makoto Oishi, Ken Ohka, Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari and Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa when Kodaka pinned Ueno with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the cliff into the trout pond (83:09).

Bad weather postponed the original date of the match but other than that nothing stops Campsite Pro Wrestling!

Before the advertised match began, an exhibition took place with the trainee Keigo Nakamura taking on Shunma Katsumata. The match stayed in and around the gym mats representing the ring. Katsumata won with a Texas Cloverleaf then sang “Going my ωay!!!!!~You Are Not Alone” over a megaphone.

After a performance of the Japanese national anthem, it was time for the big match to begin! The Ganbare☆Wrestling team were led by Ken Ohka wearing a gas mask. Cat’s Pye all entered standing on the back of a truck. The BASARA team looked ready to go until Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi went to the ground and laid himself out flat. Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno were all dressed in military gear as if they were about to enter a survival Battle Royal game. The other DDT team were just in their regular wrestling gear and were by default the most normal team involved.

Things got off to an odd start when FUMA chased after opponents with nunchucks while Hiroshi began doing yoga stretches. Others liked what they saw and decided to join in. Yuki Kamifuku then tried to attract everyone’s attention with her modelling poses.

Ohka had enough and went in search of another area of the park. He ended up falling into a trout pond.

Everyone came across a pitched tent. Yumehito Imanari opened it up to look inside and found Cody Hall! An angry Hall attacked Imanari and a few others for disturbing his camping experience. He wouldn’t attack the women though and they were grateful to him because of it. He went back into his tent and the wrestlers moved elsewhere.

HARASHIMA and Isami Kodaka pushed Ueno inbetween some trees until he got stuck. HARASHIMA then scared Ueno by placing bugs on him.

All three women on Cat’s Pye climbed onto the roof of a nearby shack. They all encouraged each other to dive off onto everyone below. Only Mina Shirakawa went through with it. Kamifuku & Yuna Manase tricked her into jumping by saying they would all go together. They just stayed in place when Shirakawa jumped.

A large chain of wrestling holds between everyone took them up a hill where Hiroshi and Antonio Honda were seen meditating together. Hiroshi led everyone in a stretching exercise then demanded 3,500 yen from each person for the class fee.

FUMA found another tent and threatened whoever was inside to come out. It was SAGAT! He was supposed to be in the match on the original date but went ill with the flu. Now that it was postponed until today, he got recovered but never got invited back! He attacked his supposed teammates Kodaka & FUMA. They retaliated by burning down his tent!

The match went through a new route and Imanari found somewhere familiar. It was the hut he hid in during last year’s match when everybody shot fireworks at him! He told everyone it was his house and tried to step in. Unfortunately for him it was already occupied by Cody Hall! He threatened Imanari but calmed down when he saw Shirakawa, picking up a flower for her.

With everybody paying attention to Hall, Imanari took Manase hostage and hid inside the hut. He threatened to start filming movies of Manase but everybody shot fireworks at them until he let her go.

MAO and HARASHIMA fought by a small waterfall and both tried to down each other in it. Ueno and FUMA fought on top of a roof with Kodaka shooting fireworks at them. Ueno finally had enough and climbed down to the ground. It was here where he found something shocking.

Ueno saw a fence in the distance where both Kamifuku and Shirakawa were found strangled to death with nooses! Ueno asked who could have done such a thing. Imanari suddenly turned detective and found pieces of the girls’ costumes in Ueno’s pocket. Ueno grabbed Imanari and tried to strangle him. Imanari was rescued when Makoto Oishi struck Ueno over the head with a rock.

Oishi then went over to Kamifuku and Shirakawa and tried to revive them. They woke up, yelled “We’re zombies!” then chased after him.

MAO successfully used his gilly suit to hide away from the action and ambush Kodaka.

FUMA jumped off a tree to put Imanari through a table.

MAO used his gilly suit again to scare Keisuke Ishii off the roof of a hut. He then Moonsaulted onto everyone.

The match moved back to the starting area where the BASARA team continued to shoot fireworks at their opponents. Ohka & Imanari fought back by spraying fire extinguishers at them.

Imanari found the truck that Cat’s Pye entered in. He wanted to drive it but found out Cody Hall was in the driver’s seat! Hall attacked Imanari while Ohka got in the truck and drove into his opponents.

The truck was stopped single handedly by Takeshita. He stopped the truck in its tracks and even pushed it backwards.

Ishii attacked Takeshita and held him in front of the pond. Ohka charged over to do the Flame Spear but Takeshita got out of the way and Ohka plunged into the pond.

One by one everyone got thrown or slammed into the pond. It ended with Kodaka jumping off a cliff and hitting the Diving Double Knee Drop onto everyone in the pond below. He pinned Ueno in the water to give Team BASARA the victory after one hour and twenty minutes!

Kodaka said that this might be his last Campsite Match because BASARA will be leaving the DDT family soon. If it is then he is glad to have been rewarded with the win today. Meanwhile MAO found a gun that shot fireworks and fired it at the trainees for everyone’s entertainment. SAGAT tried to stop him with the Goregrind but MAO jumped out of the way. SAGAT landed in the campfire, again for everyone’s entertainment.

There were a lot of reunions and old faces appearing today to celebrate Masahiro Takanashi’s 16 years as a pro wrestler. In the main event Takanashi fought Danshoku Dieno with Muscle Sakai and Yusuke Inokuma in Dieno’s corner. Takanashi used some of Dieno’s own moves against him including a Lip Lock on the top turnbuckle. It was to set up an Avalanche Takatonic but Dieno countered it into an Avalanche Implant. But there was still life left in Takanashi. He avoided the Danshoku Driver and stunned Dieno with Thrust Kicks until he could win with the Takatonic.

After the match Takanashi was reunited with KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi. KUDO said it felt good to be inside a wrestling ring again. It’s not a place to talk but a place to fight. He assured everyone that he will come back to wrestling in the near future. Takanashi said that today felt like everybody was coming home. Everyone here is different but they all protect DDT with their own way of fighting. He will continue to do the same because there must be a ring for everyone to come home to, no matter where they are. Last year Takanashi lost his 15th anniversary match in this venue. He walked out without saying a word. This year things went better for him and he wants to stand in front of the fans, thanking them for coming today to see him. Later backstage Takanashi announced that he is will not be entering the upcoming D-Ou Grand Prix tournament. He cited his poor performances in the previous two tournaments as his reason. DDT was going to offer him a spot again but Takanashi turned it down so he can go on a different path he wants to take.

HARASHIMA and Kagetora shook hands after their tag match.

DAMNATION thought they were going to have a 4 on 1 advantage against Sanshiro Takagi. However Takagi gathered together an all star team of DDT legends to even the odds. Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba fought with Takagi while Poison Sawada JULIE watched from their corner. But in a twist JULIE betrayed Takagi by spraying Green Mist into his face while Takagi tried to give Daisuke Sasaki the Sit Down Himawari Bomb. Sasaki slipped out and pinned Takagi with a School Boy. JULIE told Takagi that they are enemies for life. Takashi Sasaki and Daisuke Sasaki teased a Sasaki Contra Sasaki Showdown. Daisuke Sasaki then told JULIE that if he ever comes back, he will quit DAMNATION so the two of them can run the Snake World together.

Before Match #2 began Takanashi reminded everyone that the Consumption Tax in Japan will increase to 10% this October. There are many things Takanashi wants to do before this change happens, like sending a message to two important people in his life in order to settle a lifelong rivalry between them. Hence the match between Super Sasadango Machine and DJ Nira. Sasadango came out as Muscle Sakai dressed in casual clothes. Sakai refused to wrestle Nira because he is retired. He got tricked into doing some moves and had his clothes removed to reveal his wrestling gear underneath. He still refused to wrestle. Hisaya Imabayashi got in the ring and put the Sasadango mask over Sakai’s head, granting him his approval to wrestle the match. Sasadango took control of the match and hit an F5. He then went for a Vertical Drop Brainbuster but the room went dark. A voiceover said that the Brainbuster went wrong and this was how Sasadango created his famous Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock finishing move! This entire match turned out to be Sasadango’s origin story called “Super Sasadango Machine Episode Zero”!

The Gauntlet Tag match was a visit through DDT’s past as well as Takanashi’s wrestling relationships outside the company. Antonio Honda & Riho first eliminated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Riho blocked Hirata’s knockout chop and rolled him up. The next team was supposed to be Yusuke Inokuma & MAO but they were injured before the show and a expected to be out of action for the next 30 years. Replacing them was the menacing return of Gaijin A & Gaijin A! They attacked Honda, Riho and Yukinori Matsui with sellotape, even hanging Riho over the ring ropes with it! Honda fought back and used the tape to hang both of the Gaijin A’s before knocking them to the floor for the elimination. Riho recovered in time for Konosuke Takeshita & Gorgeous Matsuno’s entry into the match. The unexpectedly sharp teamwork between Takeshita & Matsuno led to Takeshita submitting Honda with the Walls Of Takeshita after Matsuno his the Gorgeous Star Elbow. When Emi Sakura & Cherry came out, Takeshita attempted the Gorgeous Star Elbow but got caught in the ropes. Sakura was easily able to pin Matsuno without anyone there to stop her. A collision between Sakura & Cherry allowed Mei Suruga to pin Sakura with the Shoulder Propeller Clutch. Next up were Gota Ihashi, Shota & Chinsuke Nakamura all dressed up like Shuten-dōji wrestlers. Ihashi was Yukio Sakaguchi, Shota was Masahiro Takanashi and Chinsuke was KUDO. Suruga stopped Chinsuke from doing the Diving Double Knee Drop while Saki Akai pinned Ihashi with the Rookie Award. The joshi team’s run came to an end when Yasu Urano & Ken Ohka eliminated them. Urano countered the Propeller Clutch into a Cradle for the pin. The last team to come out was Hoshitango & Seiya Morohashi. They won the match when Morohashi made Ohka give up to the Crippler Crossface. However Morohashi and Ohka continued to fight after the match prompting Hoshitango and Urano to break them up.

In the boxing match Miyako Haru whistled Chupacabra down to the ring. It knocked Pokotan’s head off with an uppercut, revealing a rubber Danshoku Dieno mask underneath. Pokoton then knocked out Chupacabra with a Straight Right. Afterwards Sayako Obihiro pulled the rubber mask off to reveal Pokotan was Daichi Kakimoto!

Tomomitsu Matsunaga decided to wrestle in a sumo mawashi.
