*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.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP 2019”, 29/09/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Takato Nakano

2. Masahiro Takanashi & MAO Vs Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Akito & Yuki Iino
7. DDT Extreme Title – Survival 3 Way Match: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo

The main event is now an elimination 3 Way Match. Jiro Kuroshio decided this because he wants to beat both HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in the one match. Also he wants to cherish his time wrestling in Japan before he relocates to America next year. That’s why he did not choose a stipulation that allows weapon usage. HARASHIMA has experience wrestling in such a match, winning one in a Sumo Hall main event back in 2014. Endo thinks HARASHIMA is deteriorating as proved by his recent wins over him including a direct pinfall. Endo also says he will move to America next year so he can go back home to New York. When he was corrected about his hometown really being Shiraishi City in Miyagi, he dismisses it with “That’s not America” as his response.

The power of rugby has given Yuki Iino a massive boost in confidence while Daisuke Sasaki is trying to figure out if he likes or hates the sport. Iino pinned Sasaki at yesterday’s show in Fukushima in a match featuring rugby tackles from both of them. Sasaki refuses to accept the result but also can’t handle being unable to tackle Iino effectively.

Yuki Ueno injured his left foot during the Campsite Pro Wrestling match last week. He already missed the past weekend’s shows but has been given the all clear to return at Korakuen Hall.

A note was found in the DDT office written by Saki Akai’s demon relative Saki. She may show up again soon but the complete card for Korakuen has already been decided without her.

Aichi Nagoya Legend Hall

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani Marunage Match ~ Drop Kick Bar One Day Store Manager 3 Way Match: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Akito Vs Asuka

Nobuhiro Shimatani wants to challenge Akito over the management rights to the Drop Kick Bar. If Shimatani wins he gets to run the bar for a day and he promises to make it DAMNATION themed. Akito is already the Drop Kick manager so nothing changes if he wins. Asuka is in the match because Shimatani would rather work for her than Akito.

DDT “FROM THE DRAMATIC NEW WORLD! 2019”, 13/10/2019
Osaka World Hall

1. Yuki Iino Marunage Match: Hiroshi Yamato & Yuki Iino Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto

Iino and Hiroshi Yamato went to nearby colleges so maybe they can work as a team. Iino also likes reading the kind of kinky stories that Yamato writes in his spare time. Now that filming for No Side Game has ended, Iino no longer has to hide his kinky side in public. He promises Osaka will get a kinky match! And who is kinkier than Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto!

DDT “SHUSSE DAIMYO DRAMATIC KUN 2019”, 21/09/2019
Shizuoka Create Hamamatsu Hall
177 Fans

1. Akito defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the IV Knee Lock (8:59).
2. Soma Takao & Mad Paulie defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya when Paulie pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash.
3. Antonio Honda defeated Mizuki Watase with a School Boy (8:49).
4. Lucha Libre Rules: Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Shunma Katsumata and MAO when Owashi pinned MAO with La Magistral Cradle (10:39).
5. 3 Way Match: Asuka defeated Konosuke Takeshita and Kazuki Hirata when Asuka pinned Hirata with a Swinging Choke Slam (11:36).
6. Shizuoka Hero, Makoto Oishi Triumph!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Endo submitted Oishi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (13:35).

Makoto Oishi’s local return was spoiled by Tetsuya Endo’s Yurikamome Hold. Afterwards Endo mocked HARASHIMA’s usual post-match promos, predicting that HARASHIMA will blame a DAMNATION ambush that happened before the bell. Endo said it is just another week of HARASHIMA thinking of excuses for losing to him. Daisuke Sasaki interrupted Endo’s promo to ask if anyone knew the result of the New Zealand Vs South Africa match happening in the Rugby World Cup. He then said he doesn’t care about rugby.

The 3 Way match mostly focused on Konosuke Takeshita and Asuka which made Kazuki Hirata feel like the awkward third wheel. Asuka got rid of Takeshita with a German Suplex and won with a Swinging Choke Slam on Hirata. Takeshita told Asuka afterwards that their first match together was a tag with four in it, then today was a 3 Way. All that is left is them to fight one on one and he is looking forward to it.

The planned Daisuke Kiso Marunage match was postponed and will be held on a future show. Toru Owashi asked for the match to be a Lucha Libre Rules tag match instead. Shunma Katsumata and MAO both declined but Kiso granted it. Owashi got the pin but admitted that Naomi Yoshimura did most of the work. Yoshimura asked everyone to support their kind of lucha.

Yukio Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee but Soma Takao dodged it and Yukio Naya took the hit instead. Mad Paulie took advantage and pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash.

302 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Soma Takao defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Gin And Tonic (7:23).
2. Gota Ihashi Marunage Match: Naomi Yoshimura defeated Gota Ihashi and Yukio Naya when Yoshimura pinned Ihashi with the Drill A Hole Piledriver (8:19).
3. Tomomitsu Matsunaga defeated Mizuki Watase with a Torso Squeeze Sleeper Hold (7:38).
4. DDT Has A Variety Of Teams!: Sanshiro Takagi, Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Hiroshi Yamato when Takagi pinned Hirata with the Stone Cold Stunner (0:09).

5. Antonio Honda & Cody Hall defeated Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Hall pinned Shimatani with the Cody Press (11:31).
6. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated MAO & Asuka when Endo pinned MAO with the Shooting Star Press (11:33).
7. Omuta Specialty! The Moon Came Out The Moon Came Out! Barisugo Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuto Aijima defeated HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Yukio Sakaguchi when Aijima pinned Ueno with a Diving Elbow Drop (16:24).

Today’s DDT show was the first one held at Omuta in two years. Yuto Aijima called it a success because of the cooperation between DDT and the Omuta locals like himself. He noticed that with Konosuke Takeshita as the champion, DDT is growing into a younger company by having more wrestlers in their 20s. Aijima is in his 50s but he hopes to have another match in DDT before his career ends. Even when he no longer wrestlers, DDT will always be Aijima’s favourite wrestling company.

Asuka got an extra kick in on Tetsuya Endo after their match. Her and Daisuke Sasaki being in the same ring again wasn’t a friendly time either.

The Cody Press used by Cody Hall is a Diving Body Press from the centre of middle rope.

DDT “DRAMATIC SAINT INN☆ONISAN 2019”, 16/09/2019
Okayama Saint Inn Kurashiki
136 Fans

1. Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya defeated Cody Hall & Antonio Honda when Oishi pinned Honda after Naya Choke Slammed Oishi onto Honda (12:15).
2. OPG Offer Match: Gota Ihashi, Great Mutiger & Yunosuke defeated Takuya Yamauchi, Tomoya Uehara & Scoville when Mutiger pinned Scoville with a Diving Elbow Drop (8:43).

4. Mizuki Watase Marunage Match ~ Advent Of God!! Falls Count Anywhere In Kurashiki Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Shunma Katsumata & Hiroshi Yamato defeated Mizuki Watase, MAO & Asuka when Katsumata pinned Watase with a Moonsault Foot Stomp on the Barbed Wire Board (24:00).
5. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Akito submitted Shimatani with the Scorpion Lock (16:28).
6. Kurashiki Specialty Beauty Area Special 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when HARASHIMA pinned Paulie with the Somato (17:26).

Today’s ending was the first time in a long time that the entire DISASTER BOX unit were together in the same ring. Tetsuya Endo thought he got one over on HARASHIMA when he used a Standing Somato on his against the corner. But HARASHIMA got the last laugh by blocking a Springboard attack with a Dropkick and then pinning Mad Paulie with two versions of the Somato.

Yuki Iino was absent from the show but Akito was still inspired by his appearances on the No Side Game TV drama. ALL OUT supports No Side Game and will use that story as the theme for their upcoming KO-D Tag Team Title shot. Konosuke Takeshita hopes that everybody in ALL OUT will appear on the show if it ever gets a sequel.

The hotel the show took place in has a lot of cleaning up to do thanks to the chaos in Match #4. The two teams didn’t wait long to fight their way away from the ring. Shunma Katsumata brought out a stepladder to do a Diving Foot Stomp from. Asuka found rope outside the building and used it to choke Katsumata. Mizuki Watase put Sanshiro Takagi through a table after jumping from the lobby desk. MAO and Hiroshi Yamato went into the bathhouse and threw each other into the baths. Takagi built a chair castle but it was knocked down when Watase’s team drove a motorbike into it. Back in the ring Katsumata brought out a box of toy bricks as well as a barbed wire board! Asuka hit the Moonsault on Katsumata with a chair in hand. Watase placed the barbed wire board over two chairs and tried to put Katsumata through it with the Calf Branding. But Katsumata blocked the move and instead threw Watase into the board with a top rope Frankensteiner. He then placed the board remains on top of Watase and pinned him after a Moonsault Foot Stomp. Katsumata thanked Watase for coming up with such a crazy match but Watase rejected his handshake.

Yukio Naya has found a good way to win tag matches. Just Choke Slam your partner onto your opponent!
