Yamanashi Natureland Om
200 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6 Way Tag Match: Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei defeated Mike Bailey & MAO, HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie, Sanshiro Takagi & Michael Nakazawa and Isami Kodaka & Fuminori Abe when Shu pinned Bailey with the Zombie King on top of a car (87:03).

With summer coming to an end, DDT found the time to go camping at Yamanashi Natureland Om, the home of their Campsite Pro Wrestling matches. This time six teams of two would face off an cause havoc out in the woods. The action was followed by Hisaya Imabayashi, Haruo Murata and Konosuke Takeshita on commentary as they tried to catch up with all of the chaos.

Sanshiro Takagi & Michael Nakazawa arrived wearing Gundam costumes. Isami Kodaka & Fuminori Abe drove into the starting area on a scooter. The Brahman Brothers were the first to create trouble when they threw buckets of water and dirt at everyone.

The match began at the plaza and quickly found its way along the river. HARASHIMA and Kodaka fought their way towards a small waterfall and they were almost pushed off the edge. They avoided it and instead HARASHIMA suplexed Kodaka down a hill.

The Brahmans found a nearby restroom and pushed Nakazawa’s head into a toilet. They then brought Takagi towards an electric fence. Takagi was pushed into the fence and “explosions” were set off from the currents flowing through Takagi’s body.

Down at the bottom of the hill everybody found an unexpected figure. It was Yumehito Imanari acting like he was in the movie Commando. HARASHIMA disarmed Imanari and the wrestlers all forced him to flee the scene.

The match found its way to a hut where MAO and Yuki Ueno climbed up to the roof so they could attack everybody with water guns. The Brahmans got the upper hand and lined up along chain of wrestlers for their bowling ball spot. The word “Strike!” echoed throughout the area after they threw the ball. They then tried to shove a wooden stake up Nakazawa’s backside.

Kodaka & Abe returned to the plaza on their scooter and drove into Nakazawa. The Brahmans found a tent and set it on fire. It turned out the tent was being used by Ryan Davidson and he was pissed! Davidson went on a rampage attacking everybody. Mike Bailey & MAO stopped him and took him out with a Double Standing Moonsault on the remains of the tent.

Takagi found a can of mousse so he sprayed a lump of it onto his hands and set it on fire. He went to slap his target but missed and hit Nakazawa by accident.

The Brahmans were being so mean to people that they made a kid cry. HARASHIMA helped the kid kick them in the head for payback.

The match went on the move again and found its way to one of the highest points of the campsite. There they found the Sumo God Kazusada Higuchi accompanied by Nobuhiro Shimatani. Higuchi challenged everyone to beat him in a game of sumo and he defeated them all.

A frightful discovery was made nearby. The dead body of Makoto Oishi was found with his head next to a rock covered in his blood. Curiously, there was a blood stain next to his hand that looked like the letter M. Everyone assumed it was Michael Nakazawa until they saw both MAO and Yuki Ueno were covered in blood. HARASHIMA attacked them because they wouldn’t apologise for accidentally killing Oishi. Bailey & MAO both moonsaulted off of a shed while Abe prayed for Oishi.

The action went back to the plaza where everyone saw Ryan Davidson unconscious on the ground. They all thought he died too but he woke up and was again pissed off. This time Davidson picked up a log and placed it over his shoulders. He spun around hitting anyone who approached him. Higuchi reappeared and challenged Davidson to some sumo wrestling.


There was a chain of Headscissors…

Mad Paulie then turned it into one long Crab Hold.

Commando Imanari returned and took several people hostage in a nearby hut. Nakazawa, Shimatani and a Samurai! TV cameraman were all being held by him. Takagi rallied the other wrestlers to hold the hut under siege by shooting fireworks into it! The Brahmans joined in by throwing eggs at the hut. Nakazawa was freed but when he left the hut he suffered an Anal Explosion from a firecracker that was placed inside his tights!

A pile of wood was collected and made into a campfire. Takagi emerged riding the Dramatic Dream Cycle but crashed into the fire when everyone dodged him.

Everyone fought into a nearby pond and one by one the wrestlers did their trademark moves into the water. Tetsuya Endo was the last to jump with a Tornillo onto everybody.


The feud between Takagi and MAO then took to a new level never seen before in DDT. Takagi found a car and tried to run over MAO. In return MAO found another car and the two drove around trying to hit each other! MAO’s car stalled and that allowed Takagi to drive into him from the side! Takagi pulled MAO out of the car and gave him a Spiccoli Driver onto the bonnet. Endo placed Ueno on the hood of one of the cars and Paulie flattened Ueno with a Splash onto the hood.

Kodaka & Abe found pick axes and decided to relive the bonus stage of Street Fighter II. Everyone liked the idea and joined in trying to destroy the cars with their wrestling moves!

The Brahmans remembered there was a wrestling match going on so they attacked Bailey with a stop sign and threw a bucket of ink at him. Brahman Shu then gave Bailey the Zombie King onto the roof of the car and pinned him for the three count.

When the dust was settled Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei had a realisation. They are a tag team. Bailey & MAO are the KO-D Tag Team Champions. They should have do title match! MAO agreed then collapsed from exhaustion. Imabayashi announced the match will take place on the 23rd September Korakuen Hall show. Sanshiro Takagi then demanded a match with MAO. For months they have tried to kill each other by crazier and crazier methods. This grudge needs to be settled at Sumo Hall on 21st October in a Weapon Rumble! MAO accepted the match because the Weapon Rumble is the reason he became a pro wrestler in the first place. It must be fate that their final battle will be in that match. Takagi told him he would be bringing his car to Sumo Hall. Everybody then celebrated the end of today’s match by continuing to destroy the two cars.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #17”, 11/09/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 5th Match: Shinya Aoki Vs Kota Umeda

Kota Umeda currently has an 0-4 record in the Mad Dog series but he isn’t letting that dampen his determination. He showed no hesitation to challenge Shinya Aoki to a match.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018”, 23/09/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special 6-Man Tag Match: Jun Kasai, Sabu & X Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata
2. KO-D Openweight Title – Survival 3 Way Match: Meiko Satomura (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie Vs Danshoku Dieno

A three way cross-up regarding the KO-D Openweight Title leads to one more title match before Sumo Hall in October. The new champion Meiko Satomura wanted to defend the title against Shigehiro Irie because she originally wanted to beat him for the championship. Irie has little desire to win back the championship until he gets his revenge on Danshoku Dieno over their soured working relationship during the summer. Dieno wants to take any opportunity that will make him the KO-D Champion going into the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” main event. Because Dieno has given up his role as DDT Producer, Sanshiro Takagi used his powers as DDT’s president to make a 3 Way Elimination Match to solve this dilemma. Takagi doesn’t want to take over the regular responsibilities of the DDT Producer so that position will remain absent for now. Hisaya Imabayashi is still the Assistant Producer so we’ll have to wait and see what changes if any there will be for the authority figure role in the future.

Irie-gun Grows, Sasaki Has Big Love For Asuka, Campsite Pro Wrestling Is Back

July 6, 2018

Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase Vs Daiki Shimomura
1. Ryogoku Style Gauntlet Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yasu Urano Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Makoto Oishi & Cherry Vs Antonio Honda & Riho Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Keisuke Ishii Vs Hoshitango & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Rekka

6. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Isami Kodaka

Irie-gun is really taking on an international flavour. Indian wrestler Baliyan Akki (sorry for getting his name wrong all this time) who has been competing in DNA and Ganbare☆Wrestling this year is the latest addition to the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito
0. NO TV Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Rekka
1. Daisuke Sasaki & Asuka Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara & Facade Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Keisuke Ishhi, MAO & Daiki Shimomura
3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: KUDO (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Toru Owashi Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Saori Anou
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The main event will be light hearted but both HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will take it seriously. There’s a championship and a Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line after all.

Kota Umeda is currently 0-3 in his trial series but the wealth of talent and experience on offer is making this a worthwhile project for the youngster. Dick Togo is next up on his list.

This week’s episode saw the surprise first appearance of the “Neon Ninja” Facade, walking down to the ring as part of Irie-gun. The guy is a high risk taker and adds another dangerous element to Shigehiro Irie’s growing faction.

A change in attitude is afoot in DAMNATION and it is all because Daisuke Sasaki has fallen in love. He and Asuka originally hit it off at the Toshimaen Street Wrestling show back in May and when they got to team up again this week, Sasaki did everything he could to protect Asuka during the match. Sasaki says DAMNATION now stands for “Big Love” and he is eager to team up with Asuka again. While Asuka is calling herself the “DAMNATION Diva” there hasn’t been any official decision made in the group yet to induct her as the newest member. She’s at least in a better position in connection to the group than Nobuhiro Shimatani so far.

Danshoku Dieno is serving a one show suspension from the “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” broadcast after he was sent off during the World Cup Rules match this week. He is relegated to the dark match because of this.

DDT “DRAMATIC MOOD SEIJO↑↑ 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie Vs Kouki Iwasaki Vs Yuki Iino
2. Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Kota Umeda
3. Antonio Honda & Keisuke Ishii Vs Akito & Kazusada Higuchi
4. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani
5. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Facade & Mizuki Watase
6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara Vs HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno
7. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO

Another city vs city grudge has popped up in DDT with Tetsuya Endo and MAO both fighting for their hometowns. Seijo Hall plays the neutral ground for those two to solve their differences.

Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga

I think Shunma Katsumata should have been in this match teaming with Akito. Then I remember Katsumata only has a low tier membership with his local Gold’s Gym so he probably doesn’t see the point in travelling over to the grand opening of a new branch.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. Shinsyu Pro Wrestling Offer Match: X Vs X
2. Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi Vs Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda
3. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Nobuhiro Shimatani
4. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons have stopped the gimmick and will return to normal. That means Kazuki Hirata is back in the spots where Hiratimo Dragon was previously advertised in.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Yuki Ueno
1. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi, Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Sammy Guevara, Jason Kincaid, Facade & Mizuki Watase
2. Uchikomi! Belt Scramble Tag Rumble: KUDO & Saki Akai Vs Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi Vs Antonio Honda & Alex Ace Vs Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Super Sasadango Machine & Yuki Iino Vs Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi
3. Big Love! Special Single Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Asuka
4. T2HiJoshi Vs ALL OUT Joshi ~Korakuen Super Hot Whirlpool!~: Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata Vs Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun
5. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie (c) Vs Mike Bailey & MAO
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Daisuke Sasaki’s love for Asuka has led to a singles match between the two. Except maybe Sasaki doesn’t think it’s a wrestling match. Whatever it is, he’s organising something for Asuka and so far she’s going along with it.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #12”, 24/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki

Yamanashi Natureland Om

Campsite Pro Wrestling returns! One of DDT’s trademark outdoor events is back for another year. Michael Nakazawa is the only announced name so far.


September 9, 2012

Yamanashi Natureland Om

3 Way Tag Team Match: Kota Ibushi, Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi defeated Tanomusaku Toba, KUDO & Gota Ihashi and Sanshiro Takagi, Michael Nakazawa & Batten Tamagawa when Ibushi pinned Takagi with a Moonsault into a pond. (1:10:14).

The peaceful Yamanashi Natureland turned into a chaotic scene today for DDT’s annual Campsite Pro Wrestling match. This year’s bout was the longest one yet, lasting over an hour. Kota Ibushi led his Homoiro Clover Z partners Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi into battle with both of his championship belts over his shoulders and a bunch of active fireworks in his possession. Tanomuaku Toba, KUDO & Gota Ihashi were their opponents, representing kickboxing. Meanwhile Mecha Sanshiro Takagi, Michael Nakazawa & Batten Tamagawa interfered from time to time to spice things up to the point where the match was turned into a 3 Way battle. Nakazawa’s role in his team was to be the “Smoke Killer”. He had to prevent Ibushi from using any fireworks for his PK Attacks. That ended badly for him and by the end of the match Nakazawa suffered burns to his forehead after getting hit by many PK fireworks. The mayhem spread over to the mountainside, then to a large campfire in the centre and then finally down to the pond. It was there where Ibushi scored the win for his team when he Moonsaulted onto Takagi in the water. Afterwards Ibushi said he had fun but he also apologised to Nakazawa for burning him.

The annual campsite match is set. Fans have been warned that Sanshiro Takagi, Michael Nakazawa and Batten Tamagawa will appear randomly throughout the match as Player Killers. Their role is pretty much to interfere and attack whoever is in their way. However, Nakazawa in particular has a grudge with Kota Ibushi over their previous campsite matches.

Frantic Card Reshuffling, Ibushi’s Replacements

September 12, 2011

DDT “NON-FIX 9.18”, 18/09/2011
Chiba Blue Field

1. 3 Way: Darkside HERO! Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Masa Takanashi
2. Poison JULIE Sawada & Keisuke Ishii Vs MIKAMI & Daisuke Sasaki
3. Yasu Urano Vs Hiro Tonai
5. Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma Vs Yuji Hino & Ryuichi Sekine
6. Danshoku Dino & YOSHIHIKO Vs Antonio Honda & Michael Nakazawa
7. KUDO Vs Makoto Oishi

With Kota Ibushi now out of action for the forseeable future, DDT has a big hole to fill on their cards. Well, desperate times call for desperate measures and DDT went searching for the only man they knew they could rely on to replace Ibushi. Luckily for them, he has accepted their offer and has come to the rescue. YOSHIHIKO will now be replacing Ibushi on the “NON-FIX 9.18” card in Chiba Blue Field. Like I said, desperate times, desperate measures.

DDT “DDT48 Election”, 25/09/2011
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Gorgeous Matsuno Vs YOSHIHIKO
2. Kazuki Hirata Vs Hiro Tsumaki
3. Isami Kodaka Vs Yasu Urano
4. Keisuke Ishii Vs Shigehiro Irie
5. Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi Vs El Generico & Hiroya Fukuda
6. DDT Vs Union: KUDO, HARASHIMA & MIKAMI Vs Shuji Ishikawa, Sanshiro Takagi & Kengo Ohka

However, DDT went and found another replacement for Ibushi this time at the “DDT48 Election” show in Korakuen Hall. El Generico comes back to DDT to team with Hiroya Fukuda from Union to fight Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi. That’s right, the dream match of Danshoku Dino Vs El Generico will now come true! I mean sure, it’s the kind of dream you get when you eat a lot of cheese at night before going to sleep, but it’s a dream match none the less!

The teams have been chosen for the DDT Vs Union 6-Man Tag Team main event. DDT will be represented by the Caps Lock squad of KUDO, HARASHIMA & MIKAMI. Union has a mix of three seperate factions, Union ace Shuji Ishikawa, Sanshiro Takagi of the TKG48 and Kengo Ohka from the Susan Guard.

Another match to watch out for is Keisuke Ishii Vs Shigehiro Irie. I have become a big fan of both wrestlers over the year. Their matches against each other has lead to an entertaining generation rivalry between the two. Ishii is coming off of a loss to KUDO over the KO-D Openweight Title, but has grown into a confident wrestler who still has a bright future ahead of him. Irie is the lovable big brute of both DDT and Union. With a KO-D Tag Team Title reign and pinfalls over Kota Ibushi and Shuji Ishikawa listed under his recent accomplishments, Irie is quickly climbing the ranks of both brands. He will be looking to avenge his defeat to Ishii at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2011”.

There are plenty more matches to come for this show. This is because every wrestler involved in this year’s DDT48 Election (except for Ibushi) will compete and get one last chance to campaign for votes from the fans. In order to fit everyone in, every match except the main event will have a ten minute time limit.
