Soma Takao is now a part of Smile Squash and this weekend is his first match as a member.

Nobuhiro Shimatani has one more chance to lose the King Of Dark Title before the DNA relaunch. Unfortunately he was defeated in his last two defences to Gota Ihashi. Will the third time be a charm?

In fact she appeared at her press conference wearing a white swimsuit and posing for the cameras. She said she is learning about Tokyo Joshi through DDT UNIVERSE and is looking forward to being in the same ring as Saki Akai. She would love to form a tag team with Akai and they can be called SM Gun together.

10. Grappling Tag 1 DAY Tournament – Final: Takafumi Ito & KEI Yamamiya (3) defeated Atsushi Aoki & Takuya Wada (0) by Judges’ Decision (15:00).

Hikaru Sato is hoping to hold another Hard Hit event in November with Gifu as a possible location. He would also like to put together a show for Ryo Kawamura’s 10th Anniversary at the end of the year.

Daisuke Nakamura requested a rematch with Sato when their bout ended in a draw.

Jun Kasai & Masaharu Tsuchihashi smashed lighttubes over their heads after their fight. They did it in the front row forcing fans to flee from the flying glass.

I think Emi Tomimatsu Vs Hiroyo Matsumoto was the first ever women’s fight in Hard Hit.

September 18, 2011

However, he is still open to teaming with the new stable in the future as a part-time member.

HARASHIMA defeating HERO! in their grudge match. HERO! offered a handshake afterwards but HARASHIMA refused it. He then challenged Darkside HERO! to a singles match at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 5th October. Darkside HERO! accepted but added the stipulation that he himself will be the referee for the match.


“NON-FIX 9.18” Changes, Full DDT48 Korakuan Card, SHF Done?

September 17, 2011

DDT “NON-FIX 9.18”, 18/09/2011

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

Some last day changes to the Chiba Blue Field event. MIKAMI and Kazuki Hirata swap places in the first two matches. Antonio Honda gets to team with Poison JULIE Sawada again, swapping places with Keisuke Ishii in Match #6.

Kota Ibushi will still attend DDT shows while recovering from his injury and will participate in autograph sessions during each event.

DDT “DDT48 GENERAL ELECTION END”, 25/09/2011
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT No. 1 Strange Rumble: Poison JULIE Sawada Vs Hoshitango Vs HERO! Vs DJ Nira Vs Mr. #6 Vs BENTEN Vs Mitsuhiro Yoshida Vs Rion Mizuki Vs Tanomusaku Toba Vs Big Morohashi Vs Shota
2. Antonio Honda Vs Tsuyoshi Kikuchi

6. Gorgeous Matsuno Vs YOSHIHIKO
7. Kazuki Hirata Vs Hiro Tsumaki
8. Isami Kodaka Vs Yasu Urano
9. Keisuke Ishii Vs Shigehiro Irie
10. Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi Vs El Generico & Hiroshi Fukuda
11. DDT Vs Union: KUDO, HARASHIMA & MIKAMI Vs Shuji Ishikawa, Sanshiro Takagi & Kengo Ohka

Every match except for the main event will have a 10 minute time limit.

El Generico takes Kota Ibushi’s spot in the show. He is the only wrestler here who is not taking part in the DDT48 General Election.

The Shit Heart ♥ Foundation seems to be done for now. The Super Shit Machine has disappeared and Tomomitsu Matsunaga has been trying to get back in the good graces of Tsurumi Amon and the DDT roster. Also of note is Darkside HERO! showing up not long after Matsunaga’s apology was rejected. Funny coincidence, don’t you think?


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
4. HARASHIMA Vs HERO!
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.

DDT “CAMPING-GROUND PRO-WRESTLING OM”, 26/09/2011
Yamanashi Natureland Om

1. Kazuki Hirata Vs Hiroshi Fukuda
2. 4 Way: HARASHIMA & KUDO Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa Vs Hikaru Sato & Michael Nakazawa Vs Isami Kodaka & Ken Ohka

HARASHIMA will now take Ibushi’s place on the Campsite show.

DDT “PRO WRESTLING FESTIVAL IN SAPPORO”, 10/10/2011
Sapporo Teisen Hall

1. MIKAMI Vs Masa Takanashi
2. KUDO & Hikaru Sato Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa
3. KO-D Tag Team Title Decision Match: Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi Vs X & X

The KO-D Tag Team Championship has now been vacated. Danshoku Dino will have a chance to win back the belts with his other Homoiro Clover Z partner Makoto Oishi in Sapporo. Their opponents will be determined in a mini tournament to be held before then.


DDT All Nighter & Chiba Card

September 9, 2011

DDT “ALL NIGHT DDT”, 10/09/2011
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Hoshitango Vs DJ Nira
2. Antonio Honda & Poison JULIE Sawada Vs MIKAMI Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sasaki
4. Hikaru Sato & Takao Soma Vs HERO! & Darkside HERO!
5. HARASHIMA Vs Masa Takanashi
6. KUDO, Keisuke Ishii & Michael Nakazawa Vs Kota Ibushi, Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi

This is the first of two shows taking place overnight in Shin-Kiba 1st RING. First show begins at 1:00 am and another show will go on afterwards at 3:30 am. So far the only match announced for the second show is a Bra & Panties Rumble filled with male wrestlers. After that show is finished, Tsurumi Amon will end the morning with his own little non-wrestling event.

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
4. HARASHIMA Vs HERO!
5. Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma Vs Yuji Hino & Ryuichi Sekine
6. Kota Ibushi & Danshoku Dino Vs Antonio Honda & Michael Nakazawa
7. KUDO Vs Makoto Oishi

A big match for Makoto Oishi, who has the home field advantage in the K-DOJO arena. A win here against KUDO would give him a great chance to get a future KO-D Openweight Title shot. It could even give him a boost in votes for the DDT48 Election.


Campsite Update, All Night DDT, Chiba Matches

September 3, 2011

I’m not 100% certain but due to a typhoon that is heading towards Japan this weekend, DDT may have to cancel tomorrow’s “CAMPING-GROUND PRO-WRESTLING OM” show. Obviously holding a wrestling show in an outdoor campsite during a typhoon is not the safest of ideas for both the wrestlers and the fans. But if the weather holds up the show will go ahead, possibly with certain areas of the campsite becoming off limits to wrestlers and fans.

DDT “ALL NIGHT DDT”, 10/09/2011
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Hoshitango Vs DJ Nira
2. Antonio Honda & Poison JULIE Sawada Vs MIKAMI Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sasaki
4. Hikaru Sato & Takao Soma Vs HERO! & Darkside HERO!
5. HARASHIMA Vs Masa Takanashi
6. KUDO, Keisuke Ishii & Michael Nakazawa Vs Kota Ibushi, Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi

This show will have a special late night start, beginning at 1:00 am. Not only that, but another show will take place in Shin-Kiba 1st RING later that morning at 3:30 am.

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

1. Yasu Urano Vs Hiro Tonai
2. Shigehiro Irie & Takao Soma Vs Yuji Hino & Ryuichi Sekine
3. HARASHIMA Vs HERO!

HARASHIMA gets his shot at revenge on his alter ego after both HERO! and Darkside HERO! betrayed him. Maybe the Prototype HERO! that showed up during “BEER FIGHT 2011” will appear and offer to help him. You can’t have enough HERO! in DDT it seems.
