*Jun Akiyama fails in V4. Konosuke Takeshita becomes the 77th KO-D Openweight Champion!

The first outdoor “WRESTLE PETER PAN” saw Konosuke Takeshita finally beat Jun Akiyama and reclaim the KO-D Openweight Title. They fought back and forth with Exploders and German Suplexes one after the other while Kenta Kobashi watched from ringside. Both also tried to win with their submission finishers. Akiyama with the Front Neck Lock and Takeshita with the Modified Chickenwing Facelock. When all else failed they went to their Knee Strikes until one stayed down. Takeshita pulled down his knee pad before hitting more Zahi Knee Strikes but Akiyama wouldn’t stay down. He had to throw Akiyama with the Cross-Arm German Suplex and then apply the Modified Chickenwing Facelock once more. The move Takeshita invented to Akiyama finally achieved its purpose and the champion tapped out!

When Takeshita was given the KO-D Title belt, he said today was not the end. He will defend the title with all of his might, become stronger and have a rematch with Akiyama this time so he can beat him as the champion. Akiyama accepted defeat but said he will get it back, just you wait and see. Chris Brookes then entered the ring and told Takeshita he hasn’t beaten him one on one in over two years. Brookes wants a shot at the title! Takeshita accepted the challenge and it will take place on the 26th September Korakuen Hall show.

Daisuke Sasaki entered Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki holding the DDT Universal Title and he gets to leave with it. Except now he actually is the Universal Champion. After weeks of theft, cheap shots and violence Yuki Ueno couldn’t get revenge for everything Sasaki had done to him. Sasaki busted him open with a belt shot. Later Mad Paulie pulled the referee away when Ueno had Sasaki pinned after a Shining Wizard. Ueno Dropkicked Paulie and Moonsaulted onto both of them outside the ring. Everything was going so well for Ueno he was even avoiding Sasaki’s cheating. But Sasaki countered the WR into La Mistica Crossover Facelock and forced Ueno to give up. Backstage Ueno admitted that Sasaki has stolen everything from him. Now it is his turn to take away everything that Sasaki cherishes. For now that threat is falling on deaf ears. Sasaki heard the guest commentator Sumire Uesaka praised him a lot during his match. He wants her address so he can mail her a marriage certificate.

Tensions were high when DAMNATION and Eruption fought for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. From the start they were ready to fight when Soma Takao threw his belt down at Yukio Sakaguchi. Meanwhile Saki Akai kept posturing at Yuji Hino, demanding he take her seriously and throw his strong Chops at her. Hino overpowered Akai but Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi were there to break the pins. Tetsuya Endo wiped out nearly everyone with a Swan Dive Shooting Star Press out of the ring. That left Akai and Hino alone to fight. Akai kept chopping and kicking Hino until he finally threw the Chop her way. Akai kicked out of the pin so Hino hit her with a Lariat. Akai kicked out of that too and still tried to fight back. Hino had to put her away with the Fuckin’ BOMB to end the match. Afterwards Hino reminded Akai of all the jokes he previously made about her being a woman. Well now he can say she is also a pro wrestler!

Jun Kasai got a taste of hardcore wrestling The 37KAMIINA style. It involves Lego. Lots and lots of Lego. Shunma Katsumata & MAO filled the ring with the toy blocks and smashed a few plastic cases along the way. Katsumata even decided to wrestle barefoot, daring Kasai to follow his lead. Kasai told him he is a man and he would but couldn’t get his wrestling boots off in time before Katsumata attacked him. Katsumata did a Moonsault Double Stomp but Kasai rolled out of the way, making him land bare feet first onto the Lego! Brookes then threw him into a ladder with the Tropical☆Yahoo. The 37KAMIINA fought back by digging skewers into their opponents’ heads. Kasai then turned the danger up a notch by blocking a Katsumata dive with a knife! He then gave Katsumata the Reverse Tiger Driver while Brookes pinned MAO with the Praying Mantis Bomb, all on the Lego for the finish. Afterwards Kasai admitted the “relaxing” hardcore matches The 37KAMIINA put together are actually fun, like a good memory from a summer vacation.

DDT’s first ever Double Ring Double Singles Matches both ended in eleven seconds. Toru Owashi immediately pinned Antonio Honda and Danshoku Dieno immediately pinned Kazuki Hirata with the same moves at the same time. Hisaya Imabayashi wasn’t sure what had happened because he couldn’t see both matches at once. So he called for both matches to restart but this time to keep them in the same ring. The rematches fell apart when the referees Yukinori Matsui and Daisuke Kiso kept getting in each other’s way. They soon started fighting each other and the wrestlers had to keep them apart. Imabayashi then had an idea to turn everything into a 3 Vs 3 match: Owashi, Honda & Kiso Vs Dieno, Hirata & Matsui with Imabayashi as the ref. Matsui’s team put Kiso in the Kaientai pose and Dieno applied the Lip Lock. Kiso then suddenly countered Matsui’s Brainbuster into a Small Package to grab victory from the jaws of defeat.

The opening match was the debuts of El Unicorn and Ilusion from the DDT Teenage Project. They were given a chance to shine and literally wrestle on top of everyone else. While the other 8 participants were locked up in a multi-man suplex struggle, Unicorn and Ilusion climbed on top of them to fight each other. It ended with Ilusion Suplexing Unicorn onto the pile below. Yuji Okabayashi’s team then won out on the multi-man Suplex spot. Ilusion Dropkicked Yusuke Okada and then joined in with Mizuki Watase to dive onto everybody outside the ring. Unicorn came back and hit a Dragonrana to Ilusion then pinned him with a Modified Double Knee Stomp. Backstage Ilusion swore to avenge his loss when he faces Unicorn in a singles match on 29th August. Yuki Iino went around searching for Naomi Yoshimura to continue fighting him. HARASHIMA and TAMURA both praised the young wrestlers for their efforts. Raimu Imai asked if he could wrestle in DDT again.

The pre-show match a a calm affair. Just a Current Blast Death Match, no biggie. Everyone was dressed for battle except for Akito, who wrestled in a suit. Kuro-chan used Hikari Noa as a shield to prevent Atsushi Onita from swinging the blast bat at him. Tetsuhiro Kuroda grabbed the bat and handed it to Kuro-chan so he could blast Onita with it. Onita got revenge by Piledriving Kuroda onto a table. Super Sasadango Machine tried to fight off everyone with a chair. Maki Itoh and Noa had a standoff with each holding blast bats. They swung at each other causing a big explosion. When the dust cleared the match came down to Onita and Kuro-chan. Onita hit his Kuro-chan with the blast bat and got the three count. After the match Onita poured water over him and with Sanshiro Takagi’s help, aided in carrying him out of the ring. Kuro-chan begged for forgiveness until Onita told him he has the qualities of a pro wrestler. It’s time for him to enter Mr. Onita’s office for a talk…

The other pre-show match saw Yukio Naya & Keigo Nakamura beat Hideki Okatani & Yuya Koroku. The least experience wrestler of the four Koroku kicked out of Naya’s Scrapbuster and Running Knee Lift. But he was put down with a Choke Slam, giving Naya’s team the win.

At the end of the show, Takagi revealed one last gift for the DDT fans. The final major DDT event of 2021 will take place at Yoyogi Gymnasium #2 on 26th December. It will be DDT’s first time in the venue.

6. KO-D Openweight Title – BLACKOUT Presents: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

As danger and uncertainty over the pandemic remains around the world, the wrestling industry is determined to chug along and to stick to their plans. This weekend more than any other is proof of that. In America, the next couple of days will no doubt become a landmark period for the modern era with massive shows from two companies along with the long awaited return of a certain hockey fan from Chicago. Japan isn’t taking it easy either as some companies begin to head outdoors for major shows held at sports stadiums. That’s what DDT is up to for “WRESTLE PETER PAN” this year. They will be at Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki, the former home of FMW’s most legendary battles. The actual venue is different because it went through renovations in the 2000s and also a name change in 2014. Hopefully the spirit of those famous shows still remains when DDT takes their crack at it. Pandemic restrictions are in place so the card is shorter than usual. Plus the risk of last minute cancellations can rear its ugly head. At this point we just have to keep our fingers crossed. There is something extra added to the show. Two wrestling rings will be set up in the stadium. The reason why will be explained in the related matches below.

0. Under Match: Yukio Naya & Keigo Nakamura Vs Hideki Okatani & Yuya Koroku

Let’s see how the low tier of DDT’s undercard has been doing lately. Yukio Naya is slotted into the novelty matches. He’s there when DDT needs a heavyweight so he’ll always have a place on the card. His family ties also means he will be a regular for any matches built around product placement. Keigo Nakamura stepped up a level by being part of the new KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Champions in Team Olympian. He has new ring gear too which is usually a sign of a wrestler moving onto the next stage of his career. He is still often the butt of jokes but when he gets the chance to be serious in the ring, he takes it. Hideki Okatani is probably the one out of this lot who advanced the most over the last year. He should have, given who he is learning from in Junretsu. He is still far away from being a polished product but he definitely moved up to No. 3 in his unit in the last few months. Yuya Koroku debuted in DDT back in April and comes from the highly regarded Animal Hamaguchi Gym. His work so far has been promising but he had a slight setback earlier this month that made him miss a few shows. That’s the problem with rookies. They break easily.

0. Electric Current Explosion 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh Vs Kuro-chan, Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Hikari Noa

Here is how loaded this weekend is. DDT has to blow up a ring at Kawasaki Stadium during the dark match to get any sort of attention! If you’re doing a major wrestling show inside Kawasaki Stadium then you have to have Atsushi Onita in an Exploding Ring Death Match. Those are the rules. That is why DDT is setting up two rings, one for the regular matches and one for Onita to blow up. As soon as Onita found out about the second ring he got in touch with DDT and demanded his match take place on the pre-show! His reasoning is it takes a lot of time and dedication to set up the explosives so he wants it to be over and done with before the main show even begins. It also sneakily moves the match over to the main ring instead of the side ring because DDT now has time to clean up the mess after the pre-show. That Onita really is a sneaky git. He has promised to use three to five times the amount of gun powder for explosions than these matches usually use.

The match itself has a lot to unpack. Onita’s run in DDT over the last year has seen him feud with a pervy comedian named Kuro-chan. Onita gets the win most of the time but their last match in December ended in a massive upset. Kuro-chan pinned Onita one, two, three! He stole Onita’s jacket, called himself the new “Evil Ways” and left thinking that was the end of it. Demands for a rematch were ignored by Kuro-chan until his manager got wind of it and decided “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” would be the perfect time and place for it to happen. The two went to put their teams together. Onita has DDT’s crazy president Sanshiro Takagi, the not yet crazy Vice President Akito and the right amount of crazy Maki Itoh. Kuro-chan has to team with Super Sasadango Machine because they both have the same agent. However his also gets Hikari Noa and FMW alumni Tetsuhiro Kuroda, which improves his team’s chances. Sasadango had to lie about Noa thinking Kuro-chan is cute to convince him to finally accept the match. Noa in particular has been wanting to do death matches for ages. Her goal is to either run over Takagi in a truck, blow him up in an explosion or do both. The stage is set and one last factor has been added to the match. Kuro-chan wants sole ownership of Exploding Ring Death Matches if his team wins! He also wants Onita to retire when he loses but we all know what that is worth so just ignore that bit.

1. Special 10-Man Tag Match – El Unicorn & Ilusion Debut Match: HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura, Yusuke Okada, Raimu Imai & El Unicorn Vs Yuji Okabayashi, TAMURA, Mizuki Watase, Yuki Iino & Ilusion

DDT looks to the future with the introduction to the DDT Teenage Project. They have spent the last year training four teenagers in secret to become pro wrestlers. Two of them are ready to have their official debut match. On one team is the 13 year old, El Unicorn. On the other is Ilusion, 18 years old. The project is meant to be for those aged 15-18 but there is a reason El Unicorn is there. Not to spoil the kid’s identity but he was already under DDT contract before this project began. Both rookies are eager to fight the larger wrestlers like Naomi Yoshimura and Yuji Okabayashi. There’s another teenager in the match too. Raimu Imai from HEAT-UP is 16 years old and still in his first year of wrestling. His claim to fame is his mother Eriko Imai is a former pop singer and current member of Japan’s House Of Councillors. Raimu’s master TAMURA is on the opposite team. He marvels over how quickly the new generation of wrestlers get to make it to the ring. HARASHIMA and Okabayashi were last seen together as Smile Pissari but they are opponents here. Yusuke Okada and Yuki Iino get to collide with stronger opponents. Last but not least there is Mizuki Watase, who recently returned from injury and finds himself restarting his wrestling progression from scratch again.

2. Double Ring Double Singles Match: Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda
2. Double Ring Double Singles Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata

Look, spots for this show are sparse this time around and DDT isn’t able to produce two dozen matches in one night. This isn’t an AEW taping. With the card filling up, the groups of wrestlers nicknamed the DDT Variety Team all began to squabbling with one another. This resulted in them all challenging each other to singles matches, no doubt earning two of them coveted main event spot. That wasn’t going to happen. Hisaya Imabayashi told the wrestlers there was room left on the show for only one more match. They can do Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda or Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata but not both. Hirata then had a brilliant idea. There will be two rings available so why not do both matches at the same time? Imabayashi loved the idea and put forth DDT’s first ever Double Ring Double Singles Match! Just don’t be surprised if the two matches still interact and get mixed up with each other. Oh and I think Dieno is currently the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. I lost track of that.

3. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai

The main card gets some of the violence left over from the pre-show. Is there anything you can do to Jun Kasai that would hurt him? He’s been through it all, literally if the thing is made out of glass. He sees the hardcore matches DDT have been doing over the last year and they left him feeling lukewarm. The weapons used and the atmosphere surrounding the matches are a bit too relaxed for his tastes. Relaxed is the accurate word to use given these matches have involved Shunma Katsumata & MAO from The 37KAMIINA (The Sauna KAMIINA). Their obsession with saunas rose to new levels ever since the DDT Sauna Club was formed. They aren’t pushovers though. Katsumata is wrestling death matches in Big Japan more often and MAO always has fucked up ideas for things to do in the ring. They want to show Kasai they can dish him the worst pain he has ever felt and they know just what to use. They found out that Kasai doesn’t like the pain you get from stepping on Lego. It’s his biggest weakness! Kasai refuses to confirm if that’s true or not, explaining that he never feels pain from anything when he wrestles in front of his fans. During all of this, Chris Brookes began feeling like the odd man out. He doesn’t even appear in the advert for the match! All the attention is on the other three and he doesn’t like that. He’ll take his anger out on Katsumata to feel better.

4. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai

DAMNATION’s most successful ventures over the last half year have been in the trios division. After Tetsuya Endo was finally knocked off the top of the mountain, he rallied together Soma Takao and new member Yuji Hino to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Endo was then able to defend the belts in his hometown. He has felt invincible ever since and thinks he has the power to banish those he defeated from his hometown. The big challengers coming in are Eruption. They held the titles before and Saki Akai in particular thinks it is time to take them back. The build up has seen Kazusada Higuchi reignite his rivalry with Endo. Yukio Sakaguchi and Takao has come to blows several times too. But the spotlight shines brightest on Akai along with Hino’s reaction to her being in the match. Hino thinks Eruption are fighting with a handicap because a woman is on their team. He also refuses to throw any Chops at Akai because he is convinced they would legit murder her. All this attitude has done is fire Akai up even more to prove her doubters wrong. She’s been wrestling for 8 years now and has shown she is not a one trick pony. It also created an unusual situation where Akai slaps around her partners because they haven’t been as determined as she is to win! Keep in mind this is when Sakaguchi is constantly getting into fights with Takao.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

DAMNATION’s second most successful venture over the last half year is Daisuke Sasaki stealing the DDT Universal Title belt from Yuki Ueno. I didn’t say winning the championship, I mean literally stealing the belt. That’s not to say Sasaki hasn’t brought it in the ring. He has won several big matches in the King Of DDT tournament by cheating like hell throughout the whole thing. That includes a quick win over Ueno. Another quick win in a later tag match resulted in Ueno giving Sasaki a title shot in order to win back his pride. Big mistake. That is what caused Sasaki to blindside Ueno, steal the title belt and promise to humiliate him even further. The last month has seen Ueno chasing after Sasaki only to see him get away with the belt time and time again. Their last confrontation inside a ring ended with Sasaki beating Ueno bloody. What has been a breakout year for Ueno has since turned sour and could take a turn for the worse if he can’t get his title back.

6. KO-D Openweight Title – BLACKOUT Presents: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Talk about a deal paying off big time. Jun Akiyama to DDT could not have worked out any better if I do say so myself. He is now six months into his KO-D Openweight Title reign with three defences under his belt. He has also taken to the player/coach role in Junretsu rather well (just remember Makoto Oishi is the official leader). The likes of Endo, Higuchi, Dieno and HARASHIMA have all failed to beat him. And then there is Konosuke Takeshita. What a journey this guy has been on. He went through two singles losses to Akiyama in back to back months at the end of 2020. Those results made him self reflect. For the first time he began to question the DDT style he so proudly represented. Things had to change in 2021.

But does it, really? When this year began, Takeshita’s Sauna Club with his friends turned into The 37KAMIINA. What followed has been a year of hot matches and aurora skies. He took a sabbatical to AEW in April, winning over a new audience of fans abroad by being himself and wrestling how he always does. When he returned, success came his way in the tag team division with his sauna buddies. He and Ueno successfully represented DDT against NOAH at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”, he and Katsumata won the first Ultimate Tag League and then followed it up by winning the KO-D Tag Team Titles. To cap it all off Takeshita rose even further back to the top by winning the King Of DDT tournament. His redemption is almost complete. All that is left to do is finally beat Akiyama one on one.

Easier said than done, right? There’s also one other thing that makes it that little bit more difficult. Kenta Kobashi will be at the show as a special guest to witness the main event. Everytime Kobashi has played this role for a Jun Akiyama singles match, Akiyama has won. Endo learned that the hard way back in “KAWASAKI STRONG 2021” back in February. Akiyama’s previous two victories over Takeshita have both been by submission as well. It’s all well and good to make it three submissions in a row but Akiyama doesn’t care for that kind of stuff. If he has to win by pinfall then so be it. This is the man who comes from King’s Road. He learned that the Giant Baba style has all the right answers for pro wrestling. That is why he is the champion! Takeshita wants to prove there is no correct answer for pro wrestling that applies to everybody. The DDT style he proudly represents can be just as effective for him as King’s Road is for Akiyama. If this match is the end of his journey, we’ll find out which answer is the right one.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

A press conference was held today covering some of the important “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” matches. Konosuke Takeshita admitted that losing twice to Jun Akiyama is what helped make him come into this match as a much better wrestler. He wants to win the KO-D Openweight Title and say with pride that “DDT has Takeshita.” Akiyama said that although his opponent is bigger and stronger, he’s going to show him what happens when the feelings in your heart and mind prevail. Akiyama won the previous two matches by submission but will take winning the third match by pinfall if he has to.

Daisuke Sasaki was able to appear on Zoom (goofy background and all) because he is finishing up his quarantine period. His physical absence from the press conference annoyed Yuki Ueno even more because Sasaki still has the stolen DDT Universal Title.

Sanshiro Takagi explained that when students from the DDT Teenage Project turn 20 years old they will become full time members of DDT. Their school education is given priority so will not be wrestling on every show. El Unicorn said he’s been recently inspired by Momiji Nishiya, the 13 year old skateboarder who won gold at the Olympics. Ilusion said he wants to become a big name worldwide. Both of them are just as focused on fighting the big names in their match as they are fighting each other.

Yesterday Atsushi Onita gathered his team together at a parking lot in Chiba to demonstrate the explosions that will be happen for their match. A watermelon was meant to be used as the target. Kuro-chan and his group interrupted the scene and attacked Onita’s team. Super Sasadango Machine smashed the watermelon over Sanshiro Takagi’s head while Akito & Maki Itoh were both taken care of. Kuro-chan & Hikari Noa then grabbed an explosive barbed wire bat and blasted Onita with it. Kuro-chan added insult to injury by pinning Onita while Sasadango counted to three. Kuro-chan promised to retire Onita and take over the rights to explosion death matches!

I will be writing a preview for the show next week.

1. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota

There’s more to Ganbare☆Joshi than just the Manase & HARUKAZE drama. Cherry allegedly won a match against Shota in impressive fashion on the last show but no evidence of it happening exists. Whatever happened between them resulted in them now teaming together. Miss Mongol usually has Shota’s number when they fight each other and Yumehito Imanari isn’t going to be distracted by any Pocchari Joshi shenanigans.

Ganbare☆Joshi is something Yuna Manase wants to push more of. The next show wasn’t supposed to be happening for a while. Manase convinced Ken Ohka to add an extra small show to the schedule this month to keep the brand active until then. There are only three matches but Manase, HARUKAZE and Moeka Haruhi will have a lot to do. They will be involved with non-wrestling activities inbetween the matches. Even Shota and Imanari will provide some similar entertainment with their SayamaSayama stand up routine.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021

0. Electric Current Explosion 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh Vs Kuro-chan, Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Hikari Noa
1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Ever since Kuro-chan pinned Atsushi Onita in a Current Explosion Death Match last December, he has avoided all of Onita’s calls for a rematch. Sanshiro Takagi needed to find wrestlers for the “WRESTLE PETER PAN” pre-show explosion match and felt it is the perfect time and place for that rematch to happen. Kuro-chan himself doesn’t want to do it but his manager signed the agreement for him along with Super Sasadango Machine to do the match. Sasadango told Kuro-chan that Hikari Noa thinks he is cute and wants to team with him so he agreed to take part. The truth is Noa wants to fight in a deathmatch and will team with anybody to do so. She also threatened to blow up Takagi. Kuro-chan also gets Tetsuhiro Kuroda on his team. Onita’s partners will be Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh. Everyone is also being warned that the amount of gunpowder being used for the explosions will be 3 to 5 times higher than usual.

7. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 1G: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Naomi Yoshimura
8. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 1H: Tetsuya Endo Vs Chris Brookes

The King Of DDT begins tomorrow and a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is up for grabs. The major DDT singles champions are all entering the tournament. Jun Akiyama has said if he wins then he will nominated Sanshiro Takagi as the No. 1 Contender. Konosuke Takeshita won’t let him do that because it is his intention to eventually win the KO-D Title back from Akiyama. Everyone is gunning after Akiyama though. Last year’s winner Tetsuya Endo wants to make a big turnaround for the second half of 2021 and recapture all of his glory from last year. He needs to get past Chris Brookes first and their singles matches in the past have all been too close to call. Shunma Katsumata also has a recent pinfall over the champion which is why Akiyama nominated him to be his 1st Round opponent.

The rest of the field have their stories to tell too. Makoto Oishi has a lot of confidence because his Fujiyama Knee Lock made Yukio Sakaguchi submit. HARASHIMA wants a rematch with Akiyama. Yuji Hino is interested in finding out how strong Sakaguchi can be when he gets angry. Soma Takao is interested in the cash prize. MAO is falling behind the rest of The 37KAMIINA so he does not want to become the weakest member of the group. Akito wants to advance past the semi-final stage he reached last year. Daisuke Sasaki is the only one without any motivation. He saw Yuki Ueno pin Kaito Kiyomiya and doesn’t like his own chances of doing any better. Ueno feels he cannot lose while he holds the DDT UNIVERSAL Title. There is a race to the top forming between DNA alumni Naomi Yoshimura and Kazusada Higuchi.

At the last Ganbare☆Joshi show, Yuu Yamagata defeated both HARUKAZE and Yuna Manase then swore never to come back. After months of trying to make contact, Manase disguised herself as an UberEats driver to find Yamagata’s home and confront her to get a rematch at the next Ganjo show. Yamagata didn’t want to create noise in front of her neighbours so she met with Manase at the parking lot to discuss it. She eventually agreed to come back for another match. She will team with Moeka Haruhi to face both Manase & HARUKAZE in a tag bout.

A bunch of outside help is filling up the card. 2AW, MAKAI, Gatoh Move and Miyako Matsumoto all have their own ideas for what should be on a joshi wrestling card.

DDT “KING OF DDT 2021 2ND ROUND”, 20/06/2021

5. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1E Vs Winner Of Match 1F
6. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1G Vs Winner Of Match 1H

It turns out that Yusuke Okada and Kiyoshi Hayashishita are friends in real life and Okada promised a “Big Name X” for Hayashishita to see him wrestle in person. That big name is Danshoku Dieno. This is Okada’s idea because fighting Dieno means he can now truly call himself a DDT wrestler. When the three of them met for the contract signing, Dieno gave Hayashishita the Lip Lock and made him faint. Okada swore revenge and promised Hayashishita will be there to see it!

4. King Of DDT 2021 – Final: X Vs X

After achieving his goal of getting to wrestle again, Yoshiaki Yatsu has been invited by Takagi to compete in DDT more often if the timing and conditions allow it. Yatsu accepts the offer but wants to do more than a Battle Royal. Takagi came up with the idea to give Yatsu a shot at the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles. DDT will provide Yatsu his three partners. He’d like to have a team of Olympic quality wrestlers but will be glad to get people with amateur wrestling backgrounds.

0. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
1. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs X

As soon as Atsushi Onita found out that a second ring would be set up for his Current Blast Death Match, he got in touch with DDT. Onita told them it takes time to set up that kind of match so he wants it to be the very first match of the day, taking place on the pre-show! DDT agreed to his request and plan to move the match over to the main wrestling ring. There will still be two rings set up on the day with something planned for the second ring. DDT just hasn’t figured out what they want to do with it yet.

Toui Kojima dislocated his left elbow at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” and is out of action for a while. The injury happened during the match but Kojima gutted it out until the finish, earning some respect from the senior wrestlers. Yuki Iino is moved over to the other team to fill his spot and Gota Ihashi is coming in to be on Iino’s original team.

The plan for Yuki Arai was to only wrestle one match a month. However she is going to have two more matches this month because watching the rest of her classmates in Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestling often is making her impatient. In response to this, Tetsuya Koda is booking Arai’s first singles match and her opponent will be Mirai Maiumi.

Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

1. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs X

The next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be held in Kawasaki Stadium. The challenger is likely going to be the winner of King Of DDT 2021. The champion himself Jun Akiyama is entering the tournament and gets to nominate his challenger if he wins it. Akiyama has gone on record wanting to choose Sanshiro Takagi as his opponent so two wrestlers in their 50s will be fighting for the championship.

I guess if you’re going to do a major outdoor show at Kawasaki Stadium you have to have Atsushi Onita in an exploding ring death match. The venue will have two rings set up with one of them being used for the explosion match.

TAMURA and Raimu Imai from HEAT-UP will both be on the show. TAMURA is an 18 year veteran while Imai only turned professional last December.


BAKUHA KOSHIEN “BAKUHA KOSHIEN 2021 SPRING” Results

BAKUHA KOSHIEN “BAKUHA KOSHIEN 2021 SPRING”, 02/05/2021
Kanagawa Tsurumi Fruit & Vegetable Market
161 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Yukio Naya when MAO pinned Naya with the Cannonball 450 through a plastic case (10:18).
2. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Round 1: Super Sasadango Machine & Tetsuhiro Kuroda (w/ Masayoshi Takeuchi) defeated Atsushi Onita & Yumehito Imanari when Kuroda pinned Imanari with a Fire Bat Full Swing (4:27).
3. Joshi Pro Wrestling Match: Yuna Manase defeated Mecha Pandita with the Oppai Ye (16:01).
4. Chris Brookes defeated Shota with a Cradle (17:39).
5. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Final – Current Blast 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Yumehito Imanari, Sanshiro Takagi & Yukio Naya defeated Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Onita pinned Machine with a Current Blast Brush Bat With 5 Inch Nail Full Swing (8:08).

The Spring Tag Tournament went completely out the window after the 1st Round matches. Shunma Katsumata & MAO beating Sanshiro Takagi & Yukio Naya isn’t anything out of the ordinary. But Katsumata & MAO then interfered in the second match, helping Super Sasadango Machine & Tetsuhiro Kuroda beat Atsushi Onita & Yumehito Imanari in something of an upset. Onita complained to Takagi afterwards, pointing out that if he doesn’t at least reach the final then half of the fans won’t come back to see the next Bakuha Koshien show. The fans agreed and applauded when Takagi announced the final was now an 8-Man Tag Match with their teams joining forces against the two winning teams.

The “God Caught In Barbed Wire” Masayoshi Takeuchi provided the special weapons in the current blast matches. He was motivated by two things: the special occasion that is Golden Week and also his rocky relationship with Onita over the years. Takeuchi gave Kuroda a barbed wire baseball bat set on fire to win their first match. His other creation in the final was a brush-like current blast bat with 5 inch nails sticking out of it. Takagi also brought in the Dramatic Dream bike and crashed into a bat swing from MAO to set off a big explosion. Onita intercepted the blast bat with nails from Sasadango and hit him with it for another big explosion. That was enough to get Onita’s team the win.

Compared to everything else on the show, Chris Brookes Vs Shota sounds like it was out of place because they had a regular wrestling match. Shota had Brookes scouted and found ways to avoid the Praying Mantis Bomb. Brookes himself had some counters to throw back at his opponent and it worked out of him in the end. After a long back and forth, Brookes got the better of Shota and won with a Cradle.

Yuna Manase used her charm to confuse Mecha Pandita. The robot couldn’t understand what to do when she did some sexy poses in the ring. Manase’s actual attacks hurt her more than Pandita though because she was just hitting a 7,000 pound piece of metal. A breakthrough came when Pandita hit its head off Manase’s chest and suffered great damage from it. With its weakness discovered, Pandita was hit with the Boinmaker and then finished off with the Oppai Ye.

6. Princess Tag Team Titles: Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino (c) Vs Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel
7. Princess Of Princess Title: Rika Tatsumi (c) Vs Maki Itoh

Now that Maki Itoh has achieved her dream of going to AEW she thinks it is time for her to give back to everyone who made her who she is today. There is no bigger gift for her to give than to win the Princess Of Princess Title and bring Tokyo Joshi Pro all the way over to a sold out Tokyo Dome! The difference in popularity between her and Rika Tatsumi hasn’t gone unnoticed by the champion. She admits Itoh has become a major player while she is still on the indies level. But what’s strong is strong no matter what level you are at. Tatsumi crawled her way up to become the Princess Champion and she isn’t giving it away on her second defence.

Sakisama continues to act like The Bakuretsu Sisters are below her despite them being the current Princess Tag Team Champions. She thinks they shouldn’t be walking around with the belts because NEO Biishiki-gun won the Max Heart Tournament and that determines who is the strongest team in TJPW. Mei Saint-Michel is looking forward to decorating her room with the pink title belts. The Sisters said they are taking a piece from all of their previous title match opponents to stay as champions no matter what. They’ve also taken Sakisama’s “Korakuen Pork” insults and turned it into actual “Champion Pork” to sell inside Korakuen Hall during the show.

There is a lot of talk between Yuki Kamifuku and Nao Kakuta over the differences between standing out and being normal. Kamifuku wants to stand out as the International Princess Champion so she can draw in people who aren’t wrestling fans to TJPW. Kakuta believes the value of the IP Title changes depending on the person who claims it. It is valuable because of what Kamifuku has done as champion so far but Kakuta thinks she can become a wonderful champion too with how she is now.

5. Special Single Match: HARUKAZE Vs Yuu Yamagata
6. Special Single Match: Yuna Manase Vs Yuu Yamagata

The original plan for Yuu Yamagata coming in to the show was just to wrestle HARUKAZE in a singles match. Those two haven’t wrestled each other since 2012. Unfortunately Yamagata has no memory of who HARUKAZE is and doesn’t want to wrestle her. Yuna Manase is the person who put this card together and she appealed to Yamagata to do the match. That caused Yamagata to then challenge Manase to a match on the show instead! After an argument between the three parties it was decided that Yamagata will wrestle twice on the show. Once against HARUKAZE and once against Manase.

Manase was able to make the Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga match against Gake no Fuchi Joshi for the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

As of today, Yusuke Okada has signed a full time deal with DDT! On the DDT side, they were interested in signing him at some point and the deciding factor was when Okada fought Yuki Ueno for the DDT UNIVERSAL Title on 14th March. Sanshiro Takagi was worried that he might have missed the window to sign Okada because as a freelancer he could have gone somewhere else afterwards. Okada admitted he wasn’t thinking about his status with DDT after that match. His only concern was standing out in the ring. He still wants to broaden his wrestling horizons and DDT is a world he doesn’t know about so he will devote himself to find out. His goal for now is to win the UNIVERSAL Title because he is becoming obsessed with surpassing Ueno. It won’t be easy for him so he will build himself up to it step by step so the DDT fans will recognize him. Takagi said the signing of Okada happening so soon after signing Jun Akiyama is just a coincidence. Takagi wants Okada to wrestle everyone in DDT from all generations. If the timing is right then Takagi believes Okada will be active in DDT for a long time.

The date and location for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” will be announced during the show. All that has been said so far is the event will be held in front of fans and is taking place in a first time big venue for DDT.

DDT/NOAH/TOKYO JOSHI PRO/GANBARE☆PRO “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”, 06/06/2021
Saitama Super Arena

3. Princess Of Princess Title: Rika Tatsumi (c) Vs X
4. GHC Heavyweight Title: Keiji Muto (c) Vs X
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs X

The first two DDT Vs NOAH matches have been made. The big one is Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno from DDT against NOAH’s Kaito Kiyomiya & Yoshiki Inamura. There is a little bit of history to this match. Kiyomiya was part of a NOAH team that defeated a DDT team featuring Takeshita & Ueno in a 6-Man Tag match at “TAKAYAMANIA EMPIRE 2” back in August 2019. Inamura now wants a piece of them to show how strong his team is. Kiyomiya sees himself in a similar position to Takeshita since both are former heavyweight champions for their promotions and neither will be challenging for a title at the show. Ueno thinks people misunderstand him whenever he says DDT is fun pro wrestling. Fun and strength are two different things but they also go hand and hand together. Ueno wants his team to win to prove DDT is fun, strong and shouldn’t be underestimated. Takeshita also seems to have a chip on his shoulder over any opinion that NOAH is better than DDT.

The other DDT Vs NOAH match is based around the newer wrestlers from both companies. It is confirmed to be the opening match.
