Shigehiro Irie returns to DDT after a let’s say, minor setback during his latest tour of America. He has the KO-D Openweight Title back but I don’t think everyone will be happy enough to forget about what happened.
Shunma Katsumata was supposed to be on the show teaming with Akito but he is out of action with an orbital fracture. Katsumata is expected to miss one or two months before he is cleared to return. Gota Ihashi takes his place in the tag match.
