Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Joey Ryan and Danshoku Dino & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Takeshita pinned Matsunaga with a Table Splash From The Ladder On The Stage (23:28).

This match was going to be so difficult for one referee to handle so Mike Bailey was brought in to be an official with Daisuke Kiso. As usual the match broke away from it starting area and went across the Handmade In Japan festival. Sanshiro Takagi and Danshoku Dino fought through the farmer’s market. Dino then tried to force Konosuke Takeshita into the men’s restroom with him. Diego rescued Takeshita by putting Dino in a sleeper but even in an unconscious state Dino still reached out to grab Bailey’s crotch. Everyone then moved on to the Accessory Shop where Dino purchased a necklace while the others linked together a chain of Figure Four Neck Locks. Dino then performed the Danshoku Nightmare to everyone along the chain. Outside, Takagi found a bicycle and cycled into his opponents to Lariat them. Joey Ryan had to stop him by sticking a lolly pop into his mouth. Over at the main stage Bailey kept getting in the way and got caught in the crossfire. He got sick of it and fought back by kicking Dino and Diego away then Moonsaulting off the stage onto everyone below. Dino set up a ladder on the stage, climbed up halfway and put himself in the Hell Gate position. Takeshita threw Tomomitsu Matsunaga into Dino’s backside then placed him on a table. Takeshita kicked Dino off the ladder with a Big Boot to the rear then climbed the ladder. Takeshita jumped off and Splashed Matsunaga through the table for the three count! After the match Takeshita invited the Executive Chairman of the festival onto the stage. He said DDT had now appeared in the festical two years in a row then asked if they could come back next year to make it three. The chairman said he would consider it.

4. Special Tag Match: Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai Vs Makoto Oishi & Yoshiko
5. DDT Extreme Title – Ladder Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Joey Ryan
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii
*Keisuke Ishii will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

The key to the KO-D Openweight Title match will be whether or not Keisuke Ishii will be able to use the Final Cut. He’s been learning how to use the move by Kaz Hayashi for the last month but has not used it in any DDT matches since then. Ishii does not want his generation to be overtaken by Konosuke Takeshita’s generation and he thinks he is the last obstacle to prevent that from happening. Takeshita said that his success has not come from luck alone but he earned it with his power too.

Takeshita gave an update over the events that happened at the end of “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 4” in Osaka on Sunday. Naomi Yoshimura finally succeeded in embarrassing him by stealing his mother, Keiko Takeshita! He does not know if she returned home that night. All he got was a LINE message from her saying she was so excited by the crowd cheering her name that she couldn’t sleep. Amon Tsurumi joked that Ishii should steal Takeshita’s father as part of his own mind games.

Drastic measures are being taken to settle the score between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan. The two were both knocked out at the end of their Last Man Standing Double Title Match so no championship changes took place. Ryan has since lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title but he is still determined to beat Sasaki for the DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki decided the rematch at Korakuen Hall will be a Ladder Match! There is one slight problem. Normally in Ladder Matches the prize is hung high above the ring. DDT has yet to get permission from Korakuen Hall management to hang a cable from the ceiling to hold the title belt. Consultation is currently taking place between the two parties so there may not be any problems by the time the match takes place.

Ryan intends win the Extreme Title and bring it back with him to America just like he did with the Iron Man Title. Sasaki would prefer for Laura James to be the prize they have to grab instead of the Extreme Title belt. He thinks she weighs lighter than the belt so it should be possible. As part of his training for the match, Sasaki says he has been watching a porno called “Monster Cock” every day. During a photo shoot where Sasaki and Ryan posed with the ladder, Sasaki stuck his arm through the ladder and asked Ryan for a handshake. Ryan shook his hand but then tried to pull it onto his crotch. The ladder prevented Sasaki’s hand from reaching that far. Sasaki then grabbed the ladder and thrusted it at Ryan but it was blocked by his crotch. Ryan overpowered the ladder and threw Sasaki across the room in the process.

Tetsuya Endo has plans to open up a women’s fan club for Mad Paulie called the Paulie Joshi. This show is supposedly going to be the launch day of the club.

If T2Hide lose their match, both Hirata Collection A.T. and Gorgeous Matsuno will be deported from Japan.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima Vs Reika Saiki
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki
3. Fire Fighting Dollars Vs 30’s Underground Idol Final Battle!: Maki Ito Vs Azusa Takigawa

5. Beer Garden Special 6-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Nonoko & Yuna Manase Vs Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The Tokyo Princess Cup final four are Syoko Nakajima, Reika Saiki, Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki. Nakajima is the only one of the four to have reached the semi-finals in previous tournaments. Her next opponent Saiki is looking to avenge her loss to her from last month. Mizuki is the wild card of the tournament. She’s been undefeated in singles matches since her arrival in Toyko Joshi Pro in April. Sakazaki isn’t worried though. Her confidence is through the roof and she is spending her time wondering how to play with her cute new opponent.

Saki-nami is back in Tokyo Joshi thanks to her new mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent. However Saki is not back in ring shape yet after her recovery from illness so Yukio-san will take her place in the ring for NEO Biishiki-gun’s return match. Rika Tatsumi is angry that the unit was allowed back in to Tokyo Joshi after they were forced to split up. Tetsuya Koda explained to her that SIN Biishiki-gun is gone but NEO Biishiki-gun is a brand new unit. Martha the maid has been proven to be a young girl so she’s okay to wrestle. Yukio-san is being allowed to wrestle because Tatsumi wants to beat him up.

Maho Kurone is already fighting off challengers for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Yuka Sakazaki tried to pin her during the press conference but Kurone escaped with the belt. Whenever Kurone is not in public she swallows the belt and stores it in her stomach for safety. See, being a zombie has its perks.

Tokyo Dome

No Fans Street Wrestling Match Throughout All Of Tokyo Dome: Minoru Suzuki defeated Sanshiro Takagi with the Gotch-Style Piledriver on Home Base (33:54).

After 20 years DDT has made it to the biggest stage of all in Japan. The Tokyo Dome. But this wasn’t your normal all day pro wrestling extravaganza, oh God no. The budget wouldn’t allow it. Instead DDT put together a single Falls Count Anywhere match with the entire Dome open up to them and not a single fan in attendance. Only cameramen, reporters, other wrestlers and staff members were allowed to attend the show. A special match under special circumstances was necessary for the event. The grudge settlement between Sanshiro Takagi and Minoru Suzuki was the perfect choice for the occasion.

Takagi entered the baseball field first and posed at each of the bases. Suzuki then appeared with his NEVER Openweight Title and appealed to the empty seats to clap along to his song. Before the match could begin, special guest Aja Kong sung the Japanese national anthem. Both Takagi and Suzuki began to argue during the performance and a frustrated Kong stepped in between them so she could finish singing.

When the match began Takagi yelled that he was going to get revenge on Suzuki for their last match at Budokan Hall five years ago. Suzuki trapped Takagi in an Armbar but had to break it when Takagi reached over and touched first base. Takagi then put Suzuki in a Half Crab but had to let go when Suzuki reached second base. When they both realised the bases would be treated like rope breaks in this match they decided to take the fight elsewhere.

Takagi and Suzuki fought up to the stands to the 2nd floor concourse. Super Sasadango Machine was there with his Macbook ready to give a PowerPoint presentation. He wanted to transmit the presentation to the big screens but couldn’t do so. Suzuki lifted Sasadango’s mask to see who it was underneath. He was shocked to see it was Muscle Sakai because he thought Sakai was retired. While this was going on, Takagi grabbed a fire extinguisher and sprayed it at Suzuki.

Suzuki chased Takagi up the stairs toward Gate 33 and caught up with him. Their Chop battle was interrupted by Gota Ihashi who slapped Suzuki from behind. When Suzuki finally acknowledged the weak chops on his back he turned around and kicked Ihashi down the stairs.

When the fight moved up to the 4th floor concourse, Suzuki attempted to throw Takagi over the balcony. He stopped when Saki Akai walked into view working as a beer girl. Suzuki asked for a beer but had no money on him. Suzuki became angry so Akai kicked him away with a Big Boot. Akai then kicked Takagi with a Big Boot too.

Ihashi tried to attack Suzuki again but was kicked down the stairs. Again.

Takagi was getting tired from going up and down stairways constantly. He was even more out of breath when Suzuki grabbed a photographer’s bib and used it to choke Takagi. They walked past Lady Beard who was on his own singing to whoever would listen. Takagi joined in for a duet of “Valentine Kiss”.

Suzuki grabbed Takagi and put him in a Cobra Twist. Nearby Ken Ohka was seen begging at staff to let him book a Ganbare☆Wrestling show at the Tokyo Dome for 50,000 yen. Suzuki grabbed the money off of Ohka and walked down to the 1st floor concourse.

Ohka chased after Suzuki and bumped into a janitor. The janitor turned out to be Jun Kasai! He grabbed Ohka, threw him onto a table, climbed a ladder and hit the Pearl Harbour Splash on Ohka through the table.

A sad, lonely, defeated Ihashi was sitting on a nearby staircase when Suzuki appeared and kicked him down the stairs one more time. Suzuki then stepped on him while walking through a hallway. Suzuki tried to give Takagi the Gotch-Style Piledriver but Takagi escaped. The two then encountered a Muay Thai fighter warming up in the hallway. Takagi tried to make Suzuki fight him because Suzuki once fought Maurice Smith in the Tokyo Dome. Suzuki instead convinced Takagi to spar with the fighter then ran off when Takagi got pummelled.

 

Suzuki’s escape was cut off when Danshoku Dino and his friends approached him wanting to shake his hand. They left Suzuki alone when they saw Rocky Kawamura nearby and surrounded him with unwanted affection instead.

Some unexpected star power showed up when Takagi and Suzuki came across Hiroshi Tanabota and Chinsuke Nakamura wrestling each other. The Wrestle Kingdom main event stopped when Tanabota and Chinsuke focused their attention to Takagi and Suzuki but they swept them aside with ease.

Next stop on the tour was the bullpen where Keisuke Ishii and Ryota Nakatsu were busy practicing their pitches. To the surprise of everyone they were being coached by Genichiro Tenryu! When practice was over Tenryu gave Ishii, Nakatsu and Suzuki fist bumps but then gave Takagi a Rock Punch. Suzuki then pitched baseballs at Takagi until he ran away.

Takagi ran back to the baseball field and was stopped by wonderful sight in the distance. Meiko Satomura was standing on the pitcher’s mound in her full costume ready to play ball! The DDT roster were sitting in the team bench cheering Takagi on as he approached the plate with a bat. Satomura’s pitches were terrible but Takagi still swung and got strikes.

Tenryu had enough and ordered Suzuki to take Takagi’s place at bat. Satomura stood closer to Suzuki and almost struck him with a pitch. That resulted in the locker room emptying out to the field for a brawl! Tenryu got on the microphone and shouted “Stop it, you bastards! Fighting outside is not allowed!” But he couldn’t be heard over the chaos.

The brawling finally calmed down and the match was back to Takagi Vs Suzuki. They’ve been fighting for over 30 minutes and were back on the home base. Suzuki countered the Spicolli Driver into a Sleeper Hold but Takagi escaped with a Jawbreaker. Takagi then sprinted down past third base towards the wall at the end of the field. He charged up and ran towards Suzuki ready to deliver a devastating Lariat. But Suzuki ducked it and put Takagi back in the Sleeper Hold. He then hit the Gotch-Style Piledriver right next to the home base. The referee counted the pin, paused after two to make sure Takagi’s hand wasn’t touching home base, then counted three to declare Takagi out and Suzuki the winner.

Suzuki celebrated and was ready to leave when Takagi got on the microphone and called for his attention. Suzuki beat Takagi in the Budokan five years ago and today he beat him in the Tokyo Dome. He is no longer Takagi’s enemy. In fact there is nothing left for Takagi to do but retire. He thanked Suzuki for being his last opponent and the two stood together for the 10 bell salute. On the 7th bell Takagi called Suzuki a sucker and gave him a Stone Cold Stunner. He isn’t retiring, not when he still has the chance to beat Suzuki!

In fact, Takagi announced his next crazy idea for Street Wrestling. DDT is going to have a Falls Count Anywhere match on an uninhabited island! Suzuki accepted the challenge. Takagi tried to close out the show with his catchphrase but Suzuki stopped him with a Lariat. That led to another bench clearing brawl on the field with Takagi screaming “Immortal!” over and over as the broadcast came to an end.

DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN FITNESS SHOP HARAJUKU” Results

April 30, 2017

DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN FITNESS SHOP HARAJUKU”, 30/04/2017
Tokyo Fitness Shop Harajuku
50 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated HARASHIMA & Soma Takao, Sanshiro Takagi & Mizuki Watase and Shigehiro Irie Vs Gota Ihashi when Takeshita pinned Watase with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of weight plates (30:15).

To celebrate the opening of a new Fitness Shop in the Harajuku branch of Gold’s Gym, DDT was invited to set up a Falls Count Anywhere match in the building. The spectators were warned not to touch the shop goods or the working equipment for their own safety. “I will not run, I will not push, I will not get hurt” was the advice given to them for the match. Four chairs were laid out in the main storefront to act as the squared circle but obviously didn’t mean anything after the opening minutes. When the match began to spread out, Mizuki Watase pressed HARASHIMA into a sharp part of one of the exercise machines. Elsewhere Gota Ihashi tried to pin Konosuke Takeshita with Shigehiro Irie standing on top of him. Akito stopped them but Irie fought back with a Wonder Core.

Ihashi found boxing gloves and wore them to fight Sanshiro Takagi. His punches were countered by Takagi’s Low Kicks. They then found a climbing wall and Takagi challenged HARASHIMA to try it out. HARASHIMA successfully climbed up the device. Takagi couldn’t do the same. A daisy chain of Neck Locks was formed until HARASHIMA broke it by kicking Irie. Takagi dragged Watase over to a treadmill and made him sprint on it. Takeshita couldn’t stop laughing at this so Takagi grabbed him and told everyone to move the match outside.

It turned out Takeshita was still full of energy while everyone else began to feel tired. The 60 minute match from Saturday was enough preparation for him to take part in long matches. Watase climbed a drinks machine. He dove off of it onto Akito and Soma Takao below. Ihashi was made to do some benchpresses. Akito put Irie in the Scorpion Lock. Takeshita brought Watase over to the dumbbell area and tried to Brainbuster him. Watase blocked it until he was hit with a Big Boot to the face. Takeshita then gave Watase a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of 3 weight plates! That was enough for the three count. The shop manager called the event a surprising success and thinks they should do it again sometime.

It is time for Mil Clown to return home to the Magical Country.
