DDT Dramatic General Election Ranking In Parentheses

6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) Vs HARASHIMA (#2)
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

History shows that this event has not been kind to Danshoku Dino. He has won popularity contests to get the October KO-D Openweight Title shot before. It’s just he’s never gone on to win the title afterwards. Can the heart of DDT beat the new ace of DDT and finally break the statistic?

Keisuke Ishii should be psyched he is now fighting the new Triple Crown Champion.

BASARA “VAJRA 46 ~TEN GREAT COMPANIONS~” Results

September 10, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 46 ~TEN GREAT COMPANIONS~”, 10/09/2017
Chiba Blue Field
143 Fans

1. Kyu Mogami defeated Takato Nakano with the X Evacuation (9:02).
2. Temple Of Doubt! The Curse Of Abe-chan to Best Stretchman V3…!: Fuminori Abe defeated Best Stretchman V3 with the Nirvana (6:39).
3. Kotaro Yoshino & Dinosaur Takuma defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & TEPPEI when Takuma pinned TEPPEI with the Gao Bababa (9:43).
4. IRON PRIEST Vs Trans-Am ★ Family: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Trans-Am ★ Tomato, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT when Kubo pinned SAGAT with the Death Metal Roll (14:19).
5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Important Edition~: Isami Kodaka defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with the Isamuashi Zan (12:33).
6. Yuji Hino & Yasu Urano defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Hino pinned Sekine with the Fucking Bomb (20:23).

Yuji Hino is an intimidating figure and Ryuichi Sekine was hesitant to interact with him before, during and even after the main event. Sekine needed some time to recover after Hino pinned him with the Fucking Bomb. When he finally got the courage to speak, Sekine thanked Hino for the times he gave him advice and for being supportive. Hino was surprised by Sekine’s gesture, shook his hand and helped pick him back up to his feet.

There was a reason why Isami Kodaka Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino was advertised as an “Important Edition” of Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary series. Kodaka said BASARA has many friends but Yoshino is an important one. Yoshino called Kodaka the best big brother he could ever wish for. When the time comes for Kodaka to retire, he will call Yoshino to play an important role for him. But that’s not happening anytime soon. Kodaka’s turning 36 this year and he aims to wrestle until he turns 75, the same age that The Great Kojika is now. Kodaka announced that his next match for his anniversary series will be on 19th September and will involve GENTARO and Ryuji Ito.

The Trans-Am ★ Family unveiled their newest member Trans-Am ★ Tomato for their match against IRON PRIEST. He and his teammates Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT all did the Tomato Dance for their entrance together. Tomato riled up IRON PRIEST by claiming that “America Is Hip Hop!” FUMA fought him off by describing his own moves as pesticide.

Heijitsu Mask was prevented from appearing at the show today because he is only allowed to wrestle on weekdays. When he arrived at the airport this morning he was stopped by security. TEPPEI took his place in Match #3.

Fuminori Abe wrestled in full monk garb, even wearing a bald cap because he didn’t want to shave his head. He offered advice to Best Stretchman V3 and said he is becoming overwhelmed by his responsibilities. He then tried to offer pamphlets to Stretchman while they wrestled. Abe won the match when he stuck a mysterious piece of paper on Stretchman’s face, rendering the superhero unconscious. When Stretchman woke up he felt refreshed and invigorated. He has been reborn as New Best Stretchman!

6. Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Keisuke Okuda & Mizuki Watase
7. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo

Naomi Yoshimura’s teasing and troublemaking has reached another level when he visited DDT’s headquarters for an interview. He arrived carrying an unconscious Full Face into the room and dumped him onto a chair. He then announced who his true tag team partner for his match at the next DNA show will be. It’s Kengo from Michinoku Pro! Kengo entered the room and gave his reasons for teaming with Yoshimura. He’s been looking at all of the DNA roster’s Twitter accounts and found most of them boring. They’re always either training, cooking or taking care of their hair. This is supposed to be pro wrestling and this lot are just plastic personalities. The only guy in DNA he likes is Yoshimura because he is self-asserted. He was even approached by Yoshimura directly to ask him about teaming together. And to show how threatening they are together, they brought a gift in the form of the unconscious Full Face. Yoshimura took off his helmet and it was revealed to be the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda with his face scribbled all over! Yoshimura threatened to do the same to Hisaya Imabayashi when Rekka came in tried to rescue him. Yoshimura shrugged him off and with Kengo, left Rekka in a beaten heap.

Yuki Ino will go through a 7 match series. First up is Shigehiro Irie!

February 26, 2017

smilesquash-newgen

DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOKYO BAY~”, 25/02/2017
Chiba Blue Field
189 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Ishii pinned MAO with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (9:06).
2. Mad Paulie defeated Kazuki Hirata with the Paulie Buster (9:28).

4. Inner Chamber, Outer Chamber, Big Runaway! Chiba Specialty Special Single Match: Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino defeated Makoto Oishi & X = Shiori Asahi when Dino pinned Oishi with the Axe Guillotine Danshoku Driver (12:22).
5. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Endo pinned Takanashi with the Sky Twister Press (14:19).
6. Smile Squash Vs Happy Motel Fight Against All Sides Three Matches!: HARASHIMA, Soma Takao, Akito & Yasu Urano (2) defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Antonio Honda, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Guanchulo (1) (22:40).
6a. HARASHIMA pinned Guanchulo with a Buzzsaw Kick (11:31).
6b. Konosuke Takeshita pinned Akito with La España (17:03).
6c. Akito submitted Antonio Honda with the Scorpion Lock (22:40).

A 3 match challenge was set up for Smile Squash and Happy Motels in the main event. Antonio Honda started things off by telling the old tale of “Anna And The Snow Queen” because he was thinking about it over the night. But he was so tense he felt like his brain was going to blow out of his right nostril. His bad performance was fixed when Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi sang to him while he was in a Facelock. All that progress meant nothing as HARASHIMA then pinned Guanchulo with a Buzzsaw Kick to win the first fall. During the second fall Honda wandered off to the balcony and then sang “Let It Go” to distract Smile Squash. The distraction didn’t last but Takeshita was able to tie the score by pinning Akito with La España. Honda dropped the comedy for the final fall and countered Akito’s Hanamasa into a Scorpion Drop. But Akito then countered Honda’s Diving Fist Drop into an Armbar and turned it into the Scorpion Lock for the submission win. The final score was Smile Squash 2, Happy Motels 1. After the match Akito said it wasn’t a bad start for the new generation of Smile Squash. He handed the microphone over to HARASHIMA to close out the show but HARASHIMA gave it back. Since Akito won the match, HARASHIMA thinks Akito should give the speech.

Daisuke Sasaki gave Yukio Sakaguchi a warning that Tetsuya Endo will take care of him soon. Until then he should stop bringing in weak partners like Masahiro Takanashi and get someone decent to face them instead. Sakaguchi threatened to kill both Sasaki & Endo. Then said he will fill Saitama Super Arena with their blood.

Shiori Asahi was supposed to be a mystery wrestler but DDT accidentally advertised him in advance. So Makoto Oishi and Amon Tsurumi asked the fans to act surprised when Asahi appeared for their match against Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino. The match ended with Oishi & Asahi attempted to do the Cactus Flower on Dino. Takayama caught Oishi with a Brainbuster in midair and Dino grabbed Asahi for the Lip Lock. Dino then gave Oishi the Axe Guillotine Danshoku Driver to win.

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.
