Saitama Wrestle Arena
108 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Chikara (w/ Mao) defeated Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) with the Saber Chop (19:38).

The show began with a thrilled Miyako Matsumoto and Munenori Sawa announcing today’s Gake no Fuchi Joshi show has sold out with a bigger crowd than the one they had back on Christmas Eve. Sawa mentioned that Sanshiro Takagi couldn’t be here because he was having a meal with the president of AbemaTV. Matsumoto said if anyone in the audience had any complaints about the show, they should still send them to Takagi. The two left the ring then re-entered as part of the athlete’s ceremony. They remembered that the goal for today was to find a bride for Chikara.

The candidates Mao and Ichiho Shirahata entered the ring to meet Chikara. Before the match began, the two candidates faced off in a rap battle. Matsumoto joined in and the three way got too exciting for Chikara to handle. Daisuke Kiso ended the rap battle and asked the fans to choose the winner. Mao won the audience vote.

Next up was one of the regular challenges on these shows, the Kiso Flag Race. Matsumoto and Mao would race from the stage into the ring. The first one to hit Kiso would be the winner However, Mao turned out to be Sawa dressed in the same clothes. Sawa kicked Matsumoto out of the way and hit Kiso to win.

The show took a break for a special presentation of “Chikara Mania”. Darth Chikara came out to fight Ouchi Yoda in a Lightsaber duel. Matsumoto interrupted it and attacked both of them with a baseball bat “rigged to explode” with confetti. The match was ruled a no contest as the room filled with gun smoke.

Next, Metropoli-chan V entered the ring wearing a wedding dress. She was here to enter the contest and become Chikara’s bride. Matsumoto attacked her with the bat too.

Sawa and Chikara had a karaoke contest. Sawa sang “God Of Romance” and Chikara sang “Young Man”. Chikara won the audience vote.

There’s going to be a wrestling match soon. I swear! But first was another special presentation called “Ichiho Mania”. Shirahata and Mao has a Sailor Uniform Girl Showdown that did not feature sailor uniforms. They instead played a game where they had to push a piece of thread through a needle. Neither of them could do it so the game ended in a draw.

The ring announcer Uta Shima then added herself as a bride candidate. Shima and Shirahata both flirted with Chikara by saying different words in either a sexy or cute manner. Kiso judged Shima to be the winner.

When that was over Matsumoto, Mao, Chikara and Shirahata sat together to mimic a TV morning show debate. They talked about how charming Chikara is then started arguing over each other’s cooking skills. A fight was going to break out so Kiso ended the segment before things got violent. Shirahata was declared the winner of the talk show.

It was finally time for Chikara to make his decision. But just when he was about to choose his bride, his father Mitsuo Momota walked out! Even though Momota wants to have grandchildren as soon as possible, he came here today to watch a wrestling match! Matsumoto Vs Chikara was ready to begin, but first there was a 10 minute break.

At last the match happened. Mao got involved by putting Matsumoto in a Cobra Twist. Sawa ran in to rescue her but Chikara got rid of him with a Chop. Matsumoto grabbed Mao’s baseball cap and threw it away which made Chikara furious. Suddenly there were the surprise appearances of ASHUKA and Lingerie Muto! They fought until ASHUKA told everyone she had to fly back home to America. Muto left too and Sawa returned to fight Chikara in a proper wrestling match. Matsumoto used Sawa’s help to get the better of her opponent until Mao interfered again. Sawa went for the Shining Wizard on Chikara but Matsumoto got in the way and took the hit instead. Mao hit Matsumoto with the Saber Chop and Chikara followed up with one of his own to take the victory.

Chikara thanked Mao for teaming with him today. He was about to nominate her to be his bride when suddenly Shirahata’s manager came out. He said there was a violation of the rules. Chikara was not allowed to contact any of the women before the show but proof was shown on screen that Chikara sent a Twitter DM to Shirahata a few days ago! Matsumoto attacked Chikara for breaking the rules. It was then revealed that the kind of person Chikara really wants to marry is a female pro wrestler. That way then can talk about and share the same dream together. He won’t be able to marry Mao, but at least everybody now forgives him for sending the DM. Everyone then sang together to give the audience a happy ending.

Virus Concerns, Potential Bride For Chikara, Okinawa Title Match, Nakano Back For Iron Man Title

February 19, 2020

There is no change to the DDT Group’s entire event schedule despite growing fears over the coronavirus outbreak. However DDT is taking measures to prevent the virus from spreading. People attending the shows are advised to wear face masks and also use any hand sanitizers provided by the venue. All wrestlers will also be wearing face masks during autograph and photo sessions (yes that means they will be wearing the masks while getting their photos taken with fans). This will be the plan going forward until the status of virus infections changes.

Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

Due to Sanshiro Takagi’s increasingly busy schedule, he will no longer have the time to make public appearances for Gake no Fuchi Joshi. He has selected Munenori Sawa to take his place as the deputy owner. Takagi is still the proper owner of Gake no Fuchi but anything regarding public announcements, decisions and appearances will be done by Sawa from now on. Sawa wanted to decline the position but was guilted into taking it because they were broadcasting the announcement live online at the time.

Another potential bride has been found for Chikara! The idol Mao is bringing along Ichiho Shirahata from Gekijo-ban Gokigen Teikoku Ω to see the show. Shirahata is familiar with pro wrestling and has seen both Miyako Matsumoto and Tokyo Joshi Pro matches live in person. At first Chikara was worried about having to wrestle against Matsumoto because he did not want to hit a woman. But with Mao supporting him and a potential marriage with Shirahata on the line, he is motivated and ready to fight like a warrior.


1. Okinawa Pro Title: Eisa8 (c) Vs FUMA

The inactive Okinawa Pro Title is on the line in the main event. The promotion ended five years ago and Eisa8 somehow won the title two years after he left the place. It didn’t live long but it definitely has a place in FUMA’s heart.

Kazuki Hirata will be on the show.

Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X

Souken Holdings will once again sponsor a match at DDT’s biggest show of the year. That of course also means that one of the company director’s Michiaki Nakano will be there. He still desires the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title even after briefly becoming the champion for around 30 seconds last year. He wants to be in the Battle Royal to win the title again. Takagi is considering the idea but is worried that the fans would get turned off the show when they see Nakano’s physique. Takagi will only allow Nakano to enter the match if he gets in shape for it.

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

The first meeting was a decisive win for Miyu Yamashita. She welcomes the rematch with Natsumi Maki but only if Maki is fully motivated for it. Whether it is because of ring rust or a mental block, the version of Maki she defeated was not the one who was top tier in the roster before her injury.

Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno usually tweet about their sauna adventures using the hashtag #DDTサウナ部. Their bond has grown so strong that they now will team up for matches. Sadly Katsumata is currently out of action getting a metal plate removed from his cheekbone so he has to miss this one.

Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

The theme of Gake no Fuchi in 2020 is “I Want To Help Those Who Are In Need With Pro Wrestling”. Miyako Matsumoto is continuing this theme by using pro wrestling to find a potential bride for Chikara. This came about when Chikara took part in a rap battle and owned himself by admitting he can’t get married. The “bride” in question is Mao from the idol group Senosister. She describes herself as the Atsushi Onita of the idol world, having attended a Super FMW show in 2016 and getting Onita’s “holy water” thrown at her. She saw a picture of Chikara and was turned off because he looks like her uncle. Nevertheless, she agreed to attend the next show because her rent is due and she wants the money. Munenori Sawa was also invited to help out.


1. FUMA VS Acer 8

The fourth “FUMA FEST” sees the host take on Acer 8 from Okinawa Pro Wrestling in the main event.

DUEL and Bloody Blizzard are the first two bands announced for the show.


December 24, 2019

Saitama Wrestle Battle Hall
100 Fans

1. Gake no Fuchi Single Match: Jiro Kuroshio defeated Miyako Matsumoto with an Inside Cradle (34:01).
2. Special Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Tequila Saya defeated Jiro Kuroshio & Miyako Matsumoto when Saya pinned Matsumoto with the Grand Maestro de Tequila (5:48).

The debut of Gake no Fuchi Joshi Pro brought along 100 fans to the Saitama Wrestle Battle Hall. According to Miyako Matsumoto that meant these 100 fans did not go to Korakuen Hall for the other big joshi show running today on Christmas Eve, which pleased her. She went over the previous history of Gake no Fuchi and explained how the promotion came back to life. She was worried with how the show would work out but is very satisfied by the result.

The advertised match between Matsumoto and Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio was held under Gake no Fuchi rules. They are mostly the same as pro wrestling rules. However at random times during the match a whistle will be blown and a minigame will take place. Their example of a minigame was “something like the battle between light and darkness that has been around since the beginning of history.” Points are awarded to the wrestlers depending on the result of the minigame. Should the wrestling match end in a 60 minute draw then whoever has the most points will be declared the winner.

Matsumoto was the first to make her entrance. She completely copied Kuroshio’s entrance by using the “HELLO” song, wearing her own Ikemen jacket and stalling for as long as he would. The referee Daisuke Kiso then came out and also did the Ikemen entrance with the same song and his own jacket. The song continued playing for a while until Chikara unexpectedly came out doing the entrance! Finally Kuroshio appeared, confused as to how or why Chikara got here. Chikara explained he was the witness for the match, so he went to sit down at ringside.

The match began with Kuroshio threatening to squash Matsumoto. They locked up, fought around ringside for a little bit then Kuroshio hit Matsumoto with a big Shoulder Block that looked to have knocked her out. The whistle blew and it was time for the first minigame: “Ryogoku Sumo Match Day 1!”

The two squared off for a game of sumo. Kuroshio threw down Matsumoto and received a point for winning. The match returned to pro wrestling rules until the whistle blew again. The next minigame was “Ryogoku Sumo Match Day 2!” Matsumoto improved this time but still could not beat Kuroshio so she was now losing 2-0 in points. A puzzled Kuroshio shouted at his opponent, asking if she knew anything about Sumo?

The whistle blew for the 3rd minigame: “Gake no Fuchi Proxy War!” Out came the Ohuchi Rider to confront Chikara who had suddenly fallen to the Dark Side. Rider attacked Chikara with a bottle opener and a brick but Chikara deflected them with a lightsaber. Chikara used the Force to make Rider choke himself by wrapping a chain around his own neck. Ohuchi Rider was defeated which means Kuroshio won his third point.

The 4th minigame was “Gake No Fuchi Last Gig Confrontation”. A keyboard was placed in the ring and both wrestlers had to play a song. Matsumoto went first and played Kuroshio’s entrance song “HELLO” on a melodica. She thought she had outsmarted her opponent but Ikemen surprised everyone by playing “Bakusho Sengen”, the theme of Shinya Hashimoto on the keyboard! Ikemen won the audience vote and increased his lead to 4-0.

There was no time to recuperate because they went straight to “Ryogoku Sumo Match Final Day!” Kuroshio put Matsumoto in a Manjigatame while Rider and Chikara played sumo. Kuroshio let go of Matsumoto and threw Rider onto the mat. The referee ruled it as a win for Kuroshio. He tried to give Matsumoto a Brainbuster when the whistle blew again.

This time the game was “Gake No Fuchi Flag Race”. Both Matsumoto and Kuroshio had to lie face down near the entrance. After a countdown the first person to get up and attack Kiso wins the point. Matsumoto got into the ring faster than Kuroshio but Kiso avoided her attack and struck her with a Flying Cross Chop. Now Daisuke Kiso had won a point!

There were a few nearfalls and the match looked like it was back to normal. Then there was yet another whistle for a game of “Gake no Fuchi Must Not Laugh Christmas”. A manzai style comedy double act entered the ring wearing bathrobes (the woman was Metropoli-chan V, I didn’t recognise the man). Their act didn’t get either wrestler to laugh. Chikara entered the ring and hit the comedians with a baseball bat, forgetting how the game is supposed to work (you hit the person who laughs). This made Kuroshio laugh so he got hit. Kiso laughed at that so he got hit too. Matsumoto finally won a point!

Chairs were then brought into the ring for the next game “Gake no Fuchi Live Morning TV”. Matsumoto, Kuroshio, Chikara and Kiso all sat down together and had a TV style debate about marriage. The game went to a no contest when Chikara lost his temper and attacked the other wrestlers.

Both Matsumoto and Kuroshio could barely recover when the “Gake no Fuchi MC Battle” began. It was a rap battle. Kuroshio won. By this point 30 minutes had passed in the match. Chikara might have attacked them with chops at this point. I don’t know, I’m losing my mind.

Anyway the next game was the “Gake no Fuchi Squat Confrontation”. The wrestlers and Kiso began to squat. Kiso gave up almost immediately. Matsumoto eventually lost because her knee did not bend properly for the squat to count so now Kuroshio had 7 points.

Believe it or not that turned out to be the last minigame of the match because they went back to wrestling from here on out. Kuroshio missed the Moonsault Press. Matsumoto gave him a Small Package for a nearfall. Kuroshio then revered the Small Package and pinned Matsumoto for the three count.

Kuroshio told Matsumoto he felt connected to her after doing this match. He once did his own self-produced show in Shinjuku FACE so he knows what it is like to do a similar project. Matsumoto thanked him for giving her the match before he leaves Japan. She hopes they can team up together one day. She thinks they can be a super dangerous tag team together on the same level as Heisei Ishingun or the nWo! Kuroshio promised they will tag as many times as possible when he returns to Japan.

But that wasn’t it for the show! Suddenly Sanshiro Takagi came out. He liked the match they just had and likes the idea of them teaming together even more. So they are going to have a tag team match against Takagi straight away! Takagi’s tag partner is somebody who also is going to have a final match of her own soon. It’s Tequila Saya from Ice Ribbon!

Matsumoto put her Ikemen jacket back on and along with Kuroshio attacked their opponents to start the impromptu match. Takagi & Saya rallied and with the help of Chikara hit a Train Attack on Matsumoto. Kuroshio came to her aid and helped Matsumoto do the Mamma Mia Z. But Takagi caught her and countered with the Spicolli Driver. Saya went for the Grand Maestro de Tequila but Matsumoto countered it with her own clutch for a nearfall. Matsumoto and Saya went back and forth with Cradles until Saya successfully applied the Grand Maestro de Tequila to win.

Takagi thanked Saya for coming over today and told her to enjoy her remaining pro wrestling life before her retirement match on 31st December. He also thanked Kuroshio and said it will be the last time they will wrestle each other for a while. Finally, Takagi congratulated Matsumoto for successfully bringing back Gake no Fuchi. He encouraged her to recreate the brand’s history with her own hands. After all, Matsumoto is one of the best when it comes to self-promotion. Takagi then left because it’s Christmas Eve and he has a family to be with. Saya told Matsumoto that her retirement match will consist of 38 one minute bouts. She asked if Matsumoto could be one of her 38 opponents. Matsumoto wasn’t sure if she could make it but quickly accepted when it looked like Saya was going to leave.

The show ended with Meari Naito singing “All I Wants For Christmas Is You” while everyone danced around her. Then Matsumoto had one last message to tell everyone. Gake no Fuchi is back but she cannot do this on her own. She is looking for trainees or other newcomers to help her make this place bigger and bigger. The next time this show happens will be on 4th January when Matsumoto takes on Chris Brookes!

*GPW become the 20th GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

Miss Mongol thanked Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari for giving her the opportunities to wrestle even at her age. Before the show took place Mongol contacted Atsushi Onita for permission to close out the show the same way he used to. Onita gave her his blessing but after she did it, the Real GUTS Army attacked them. Shota said today’s result was a fluke and he demanded some rematches to take place on 10th and 11th August. Guts Ishijima won’t be at the 10th August show because he already has a booking with 666. Shota promised to bring along a replacement.

Minoru Fujita approached Shuichiro Katsumura after the semi-main and asked for a match with him. Fujita originally promised he would never come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling but he really wants to wrestle Katsumura. They agreed to have a match on 10th August but the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title will not be on the line.

Naoshi Sano beat Chikara clean then challenged Mitsuo Momota to a match. However Momota had another idea. It is clear that he and his son cannot beat Sano so rather then fight him again, they should all team up instead! That would be a better way for them to study Sano’s strength. Sano and Chikara were both puzzled by the idea but Momota convinced them to try it out.

Ken Ohka had some big news for Kouki Iwasaki. Next month he is going to have a couple of opponents from Big Japan coming in! Iwasaki faces Akira Hyodo on 10th August and Ryuichi Kawakami on the 11th!

Ohka and Shuhei Washida attempted to Bottle Cap Challenge before the show began but they both failed. So they changed the rules into a water drinking contest. Washida beat Ohka.

5. Dangan Senshi, Attack On Ganpro!: Masato Tanaka defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Sliding D (15:38).

Masato Tanaka thanked Yumehito Imanari for inviting him to wrestle in Ganbare☆Wrestling today. He brought up memories of Imanari training in one of the ZERO1 dojos long ago. Imanari explained to the fans that although he was never registered to ZERO1 he did get permission from them to train in their dojo. The two agreed to having another match sometime and Imanari says he is now a student of the DANGAN GYM.

Normally Shota is a Ganpro wrestler but today he represented GUTS along with Guts Ishijima & Masked Mystery. They were victorious over the Ganpro side but Ken Ohka felt something was off about Ishijima’s intentions. Ohka is trying to make pro wrestling a major sport and he wants to unify the indies to do it. But Guts World has closed down and it’s replacement Pro Wrestling GOING-UP didn’t last either. Now that Guts Ishijima is in Ganbare☆Wrestling will he quit here too? Just what is it about Ishijima and wrestling promotions that involve the letter G? Ishijima said he loves indie wrestling and he will be the one to unify it. He promised to come back to Ganpro next month to continue the rebirth of GUTS.

Chikara stood in his Mitsuo Momota’s corner so he could his father face Naoshi Sano one on one. But during the match Sano went out of the ring and dared Chikara to hit him. When Chikara wouldn’t, Sano knocked him down. He then made Momota hit the referee by accident with a Lariat. When that happened Sano brought in a chair but Chikara cut him off with the Saber Chop, allowing Momota to pin him when the ref recovered.

Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase will take place on 2nd June.

3. There Are Evil Spaces In the Middle Of Ganjo!: Moeka Haruhi Vs Andras Miyagi ended in a Double Countout (2:15).
3a. Rematch: Moeka Haruhi Vs Andras Miyagi ended in a Double Countout (9:21).
4. Are You In A Wrestling Textbook? Yumehito Imanari’s Believe S-Road: Shinjiro Otani defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Spiral Bomb (15:10).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku ~Fate Reunion! Ohka & Isami!~: Ken Ohka, Shuichiro Katsumura & Shota defeated Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura when Ohka pinned Shimomura with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster (15:06).
6. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku ~Fort Of Ganpro~: Minoru Fujita defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Samson Clutch (17:07).

Minoru Fujita grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat in the main event. Keisuke Ishii knocked him off the apron to the floor with the Kneel Kick. But when Ishii got Fujita back into the ring, Fujita caught him in the Samson Clutch to win the match. Afterwards Fujita said that regardless of the current feud between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Sento Minzoku, he was honored to have a singles match with Ishii in Tokyo today. He wants Ishii to stay on his level until the day he dies. Yumehito Imanari came out to challenge Fujita for a rematch. He is now learning from Shinjiro Otani’s pro wrestling textbook and if Fujita is a true pro wrestler, he will agree to a match on 23rd March. Fujita accepted the challenge because he isn’t going to let somebody surpass him just because they read a book written by one of the best wrestlers in Japan.

That’s not the only big match booked for the 23rd. After the semi-main event Ken Ohka called out to Isami Kodaka. At first Kodaka ignored him until Ohka kept screaming at him for a fight, saying it was personal. Kodaka accepts and they will face off on the 23rd!

Imanari learned a lot from wrestling Otani today. In fact Otani said Imanari deserves to read his textbook of pro wrestling. All 165 pages of it. Doesn’t matter if he is strong or weak, cool or bad. A real pro wrestler learns how to go about this sport in their own way.

Andras Miyagi didn’t come to Ganpro to make any friends especially with Moeka Haruhi. They wouldn’t stop fighting each other outside of the ring so they got counted out. A restart was allowed and the match lasted longer this time but it still ended with the same result. This time Haruhi almost entered the ring in time but Miyagi struck her with a chair, knocking her back to the floor in time to be counted out.

The worst thing that could happen to Chikara in the ring took place today. His chopping hand got injured! Thanks to a distracted referee, Naoshi Sano used the ring bell as a shield against Chikara’s Saber Chops. Chikara was in so much pain that the referee had to stop the match and declare Sano the winner. A concerned Mitsuo Momota checked on his son afterwards.

6. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku In Korakuen Hall!! – Texas Tornado Singapore Cane Tag Match: Yumehito Imanari & Shota defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura when Imanari pinned Shimomura with the Chubby Knee (10:44).
7. No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match: Minoru Fujita defeated Ken Ohka with the Modified SAYONARA (19:51).

Ganbare☆Wrestling’s return to Korakuen Hall was headlined by Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita fighting tooth and nail in a ring surrounded with barbed wire instead of ropes. Barbed wired wasn’t enough for them as a ladder also came into play during the match. Ohka Suplexed Fujita from the top of the ladder while later on Fujita dove off the ladder onto Ohka with barbed wire wrapped around his waist. Ohka wouldn’t give up and kept fighting to get up after Fujita hit him with the Fire Spear and a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. It took a modified Tombstone Piledriver for Fujita to finally put his rival away.

Fujita told Ohka that this was the result of the last two years going back to the previous time Ganpro was in Korakuen. Fujita even ran down Ohka for drawing a smaller crowd this time! If Ohka still believes he is trying his best and working his hardest then he should be miserable from today’s result. Fujita doesn’t care if he does his best so he has no regrets. He said Sento Minzoku are done with Ganpro and will not come back. When they left the ring, Yumehito Imanari called for them to stop. Imanari promised Fujita that he has a purpose for him to stay in Ganpro. He wants to fight Fujita at Kitazawa Town Hall on 6th January! Imanari described Fujita as an “A Class War Criminal” that he should fight. Fujita accepted the challenge while Imanari was encouraging Ohka to stand back up. When Sento Minzoku did leave, Ohka and Imanari admitted that today’s show was a poorer draw than two years ago but they will learn from it. They won’t show their weak points anymore. Everyone in Ganpro will give their energy and full feelings toward the company to make it even bigger! Everyone will work hard so more fans will come see them. Imanari then told everyone his phone number and to call him if they have anything exciting to tell him.

Imanari and Shota continued to rally a crowd around him inside the Korakuen lobby after the show was over. There was a lot of video game talk like how Imanari bought Toukon Retsuden for the original Playstation and that he has to evolve like a Pokémon. Shota said that the indies have been evolving during the 2010s and strangely enough he thinks the scene now reminds him of the 1990s. Imanari then told everyone they will return pro wrestling to the golden age once more. Ganbare☆Wrestling will be their DeLorean!

Imanari & Shota have good reason to be confident. They are riding high from beating Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura in a Texas Tornado Singapore Cane Tag Match. No tags were needed and Singapore Canes were all legal. Imanari Back Body Dropped Shota over the ropes and onto Sekine to take him out of the match. He then wound up breaking a cane over his knees before hitting Shimomura with the match winning Chubby Knee Strike.

Kouki Iwasaki came close to beating Jake Lee with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster 10 minutes into their match. Lee struck back with Middle Kicks until he could get in a Back Drop for the three count. Lee would be happy to share the ring with Iwasaki again some day either as opponents or partners. Iwasaki would rather be his opponent and maybe have it happen over in All Japan.

Speaking of All Japan, the group’s head honcho Jun Akiyama was in action kneeing the crap out of Keisuke Ishii. The newly costumed Ishii had some power in his Suplexes but was struck down with Running Knee Strikes and and Exploder Suplex. Ishii was able to kick out of them but was done when Akiyama gave him the Sternness Dust α. Akiyama patted Ishii on the chest after the match. Ishii was hoping that today would be the start of Chapter 3 in his wrestling career. He adores this kind of pro wrestling so he is thankful to Akiyama for giving him this match. He is now even more motivated to grow and also study Akiyama’s style.

Chikara was given a bouquet to celebrate his fifth year in wrestling. Carbell Ito threw out Christmas candy into the audience then told Chikara he came here today to judge him. They went into a long chop exchange during the match. Chikara accidentally hit Mitomi Masayuki with the Saber Chop and Ito dove onto Masayuki afterwards. He then hit a Diving Body Press to Chikara. Naoshi Sano took over the match and pinned Chikara with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ito stomped on Chikara when the match was over.

It was announced that Fairy Nihonbashi had gone missing and had to be replaced. Taking her spot was Fairy Suidobashi, the same person but wearing a Yomiuri Giants jersey and announced as the “Fairy Of The Tokyo Dome“. She carried a mini baseball bat and used it as a wand to cast spells on Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and even the referee. The late part of the match focused on HARUKAZE and Sumire Natsu squaring off against each other. Natsu countered an Armbar into a Power Bomb and pinned HARUKAZE with the Yoran DDT.

The in ring return for Shuhei Washida ended in defeat. Shuichiro Katsumura trapped him in a Toe Hold while Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Takeshi Okada held Hiroshi Yamato & Yukihiro Abe back from breaking the hold.

6. Danshoku Dieno, Kazusada Higuchi & Keisuke Ishii defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino when Dieno pinned Iino with the Danshoku Driver (17:47).

Hisaya Imabayashi asked the referee and all of the wrestlers in the main event to prevent Danshoku Dieno from hunting for men in the audience. Yukinori Matsui immediately began counting out Dieno as he made his entrance to get him into the ring ASAP while the wrestlers tried to block his more lewd wrestling moves during the match. Dieno understood there were rules put in place to keep him under control today but he has his own rules which he must abide with. Kazusada Higuchi ended up agreeing with Dieno and actively helped him use his moveset, even if it meant pushing their other partner Keisuke Ishii’s face into Dieno’s bare backside. After the match Dieno told the audience that rules are definitely important in DDT but they change on a daily basis. He promoted DDT’s biggest show of the year happening next Sunday and if they want to see more of Dieno’s extraordinary life then they should come down to Sumo Hall.

Chikara defeated Antonio Honda to clear his first defence of the World Omori Title. His next challenger in 2019 will be against Masahiro Takanashi, the winner of the Battle Royal earlier in the show. Takanashi appeared after the match as part of a group of wrestlers carrying Jason Kincaid down to the ring. Takanashi congratulated Chikara but called his match bad. It took 4 years for Takanashi to finally get this title shot so he will not waste his chance! He only has one shot but that’s all he needs. Chikara said he once received guidance from Kazushi Sakuraba and Katsuyori Shibata at the Laughter7 gym in Omori. Because of that he cannot be defeated in this town!

Takanashi was able to win the Battle Royal thanks to some help. Jun Kasai knocked him out of the ring but Takanashi landed on KUDO outside, avoiding the ground because KUDO caught him. Takanashi got back into the ring and eliminated Kasai to win.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga, Yuki Ueno and Chinsuke Nakamura hosted a wrestling costume contest during intermission. The contestants dressed up as Keiji Muto, HARASHIMA, Keisuke Ishii, Gabaiji-chan, the Brahman Brothers, Kazuki Hirata, Kento Miyahara and there was one who just wore a generic yellow mask. The Miyahara impersonator was voted MVP and the female Brahamn Brothers also won an award.
