By day the Tokyo Toshimaen is an amusement park full of fun and games. But at night it transforms into a secret battlefield designed to train warriors. Today DDT made use of the park to determine Japan’s national team for the Fighting World Cup, a mysterious global competition that is held every four years. Teams made up of two men and one woman would fight each other in battles to the death throughout the night. Danshoku Dieno arrived at the park with his selection of troops: Raiden (Choun-Shiryu), Makoto Oishi, Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Cherry and Cassandra Miyagi. It didn’t take long for their first set of opponents to appear.

The first bout was Oishi, Raiden & Miyagi against HARASHIMA, Gota Ihashi & Makoto. When the girls fought each other Makoto would intentionally use moves on Cassandra that allowed her to do sexy poses in the process. Cassandra then challenged Makoto to a race. She would sit on a cart pushed by Raiden while Makoto found a bike to cycle on. Makoto won. HARASHIMA appeared with traffic cones over his arms that he used to Lariat his opponents. He ran from a long distance over to Oishi to give him the Somato but Oishi moved out of the way. HARASHIMA hit Ihashi instead by accident and Oishi pinned Ihashi to win the match. Dieno’s group past their first trial but not without casualties. Both Raiden and Miyagi died from their injuries after the match.

Dieno’s group advanced to the plaza. Waiting for them were Mike Bailey, MAO & Tsukasa Fujimoto all standing in hero poses. Dieno sent Takeshita, Katsumata & Cherry to fight them. Bailey and Katsumata fought their way over to a pond allegedly filled with sulphuric acid. Katsumata fell into it when he missed a flying kick and was never seen again. The fighting moved back towards the plaza stage where Takeshita found himself in a 3 on 1 situation. However he was able to fight against the odds and he pinned MAO with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster. Again the damage dealt to Dieno’s side during the battle proved to be too much and Takeshita collapsed. His final words to his friends before losing consciousness were “Muscle is justice!”

There was no time to mourn because Kazusada Higuchi, Tanomusaku Toba & Misaki Ohata were next to challenge our heroes. Dieno began to panic because there were no more women left on his team to fight for him. The cavalry of Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai arrived in a truck just in time to fight Higuchi, Toba & Ohata. The battle was horrific to see as the savage warriors took to the rides and had the time of their lives… Anyway when they were done sampling the fun of the park they went back to fighting. Takanashi lured Higuchi and Toba onto the truck’s loading platform and ordered Sakaguchi to raise it. Sakaguchi did so and the fighters slid off as the platform tilted over. Akai climbed the truck and dove onto everyone below. She stayed on top of both Higuchi and Toba to pin them.

The dust settled but Sakaguchi didn’t. In a rage of bloodlust, Sakaguchi grabbed a sledgehammer and threatened to kill Ohata with it. Suddenly Makoto Oishi stepped in between them. He pleaded with Sakaguchi to spare her because they are dating! Oishi then turned to Ohata and placed a metal nut on her finger. “Misaki-san, please marry me!” Ohata punched Oishi. Sakaguchi got back into the truck and drove towards Ohata but Oishi jumped in front of the truck! “I’m dying! I love you! I will make you happy!” were Oishi’s words to Ohata afterwards. Ohata accepted Oishi’s proposal and they got on the truck to go get married!

Back to the death battles. Akai decided to stay and help Dieno’s team but an arrow from out of nowhere struck her in the head and killed her. Once again Dieno was without enough warriors to continue until King Otono (Choun-Shiryu again) and Space Warrior Galaxy Sophia (Cherry) appeared along with a revived Takeshita. They approached the park square where they found DAMNATION hanging out. Daisuke Sasaki was making out with Asuka while the others were just minding their own business until they saw Dieno’s team stepping into their territory. Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Asuka decided to fight them while Dieno, Sasaki and Soma Takao went over to enjoy a rollercoaster. Paulie perched himself on a bench so both Endo and Asuka could do Moonsaults off of him until Takeshita hit him with a Knee Strike. Takeshita then put Paulie through a table with a Diving Body Press from a Ladder. That ended the match but the damage took its toll again. Takeshita was left clutching his knee while screaming “Muscle is justice!” over to Dieno.

And so Dieno approached the final area for one more battle but he was alone. All of his friends and allies were either slain or on their honeymoon. Luckily for him Isami Kodaka appeared with a resurrected Cassandra Miyagi. Both were willing to help Dieno so they could take part in an exciting battle. Waiting for them were Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin Munenori Sawa. Behind them was the massive Flying Pirate ride and standing right there inside it was Meiko Satomura. The two sides fought until Kodaka asked if he could go on the Flying Pirate ride. They all agreed and went on the ride. Some of them felt sick after the ride but were encouraged by the crowd to go on it a second time. This is why the match lasted half an hour!

They eventually got back to fighting. Takagi, Sawa & Satomura climbed a bench to attempt the Sendai Golden Shower but Miyagi cut them off. Dieno positioned himself for the Hell Gate and Miyagi threw both Takagi and Sawa into it. She tried to do the same to Satomura but it was countered and Satomura threw Miyagi into Dieno’s backside. Kodaka climbed a ladder and hit the Giga Ladder Break Diving Double Knee Drop on Takagi. The wrestlers found a merry-go-round and went for a ride on that. They had a lot more fun on that than on the Flying Pirate ship. When they got off Takagi gave Dieno the Stunner, Sawa gave Dieno the Shining Wizard and Satomura gave Dieno the Scorpio Rising for the three count.

The challenge is over and Japan’s team has been decided. Team Hentai Sendai Big Boss are Japan’s strongest warriors! A signboard used as a symbol of real power was given to them but suddenly Satomura attacked Takagi & Sawa! She takes the signboard from them and calls the other women to join her side. Toshimaen belongs to them! Dieno collapsed in shock as the show was completed.

Satomura said she had fun doing street wrestling for the first time. It was dangerous but she enjoyed it and learned how any location can become a battlefield. She wants to fight in DDT and appear on AbemaTV more, it doesn’t matter if it to wrestle against men or women. Hisaya Imabayashi heard her and came up with an idea. He invited her to the 29th May episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” so she can compete in the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble. Satomura agreed. She later expressed interest in also having a match against Isami Kodaka.

The big news happening in DDT this week is Soma Takao breaking up the remains of Smile Squash so he can join with DAMNATION. This was a plan that had been brewing in the background for a long time and Takao isn’t just joining the unit to be another one of Dasuke Sasaki’s pets. Maybe by teaming with Tetsuya Endo, Takao can make Endo focus more. Endo seems to be more interested in showing off his pet beetle than wrestling his best lately.

Kouki Iwasaki was supposed to be wrestling this weekend but had to pull out due to acute gastroenteritis. In other words he has diarrhoea.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Rekka Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga
1. 4 Way Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Jason Kincaid & Mizuki Watase Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Yuki Ueno

5. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Shunma Katsumata
6. Special Single Match: HARASHIMA Vs Soma Takao
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii

HARASHIMA gets his shot at revenge on Takao. But with Smile Squash pretty much done for, the numbers game is way against him now.

Kazusada Higuchi already defeated one half of the tag team No. 1 Contenders. Now he’s facing the other. Higuchi and Kota Umeda had a lot of battles against each other in the early years of DNA. It’s time to reginite that feud!

Makoto Oishi thinks the time for change has come. For too long DDT was built around men like Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine. Oishi has found the next generation of wrestlers to take their place: Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura, Yuki Iino and lastly of course himself. The two sides will battle for the future of DDT! At least that’s what Oishi wants to think.

We have another Lucha Libre superstar joining the ranks. Rihotimo Dragon makes her debut.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #5”, 22/05/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno

2. Yuki Iino Return Match: Kota Umeda Vs Yuki Iino

The comeback rally by DNA has put Naomi Kingdom on the ropes. Yuki Ueno is winning more often and has become confident enough to challenge Naomi Yoshimura to a match.

Yuki Iino is making up for lost time by picking Umeda for his first match back.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka have put aside their differences and are now strong allies again. Shiryu is confident that Rekka has what it takes to take part in New Beijing Pro Wrestling. China’s oldest wrestling promotion doesn’t want to be overshadowed by that fancy new stuff.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #8”, 12/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 3rd Match: Masato Tanaka Vs Kota Umeda

2. Chinese Rebirth Of Revenge Match! Endless Battle!: Choun-Shiryu defeated Rekka with the Chinese Reverse Gory Special Bomb (9:19).

6. DNA-gun Vs Naomi Kingdom!: Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda defeated Naomi Yoshimura, Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo when Ueno pinned Jo with the Frog Splash (19:15).

The DNA side score another big victory over the Naomi Kingdom! But there wasn’t time for celebrations. Yuki Ueno went straight to the point and challenged Naomi Yoshimura to a singles match on the next DNA show. It was accepted and the match takes place on 3rd June in Shinjuku. Ueno said he will punish the Naomi Kingdom and a win over Yoshimura might end their feud for good.

Ryota Nakatsu and Kouki Iwasaki got into blows after Match #4. After they were pulled apart Nakatsu yelled at Iwasaki until Iwasaki threw a chair at him. Nakatsu challenged him to a match next month.

Yuki Iino announced his first match back from injury will happen at the 3rd June show. His opponent is Kota Umeda. Iino wants to beat Umeda and take over his role as DDT’s next rising star.

Choun-Shiryu and Rekka put aside their differences after their match. Rekka said that he fought with all his strength and lost but he was still happy to wrestle Shiryu. Shiryu said that Asia is moving quickly with the times. According to him the time for problems between nations, borders and race is over. As proof of this, Shiryu gave Rekka a New Beijing T-shirt as a gift and asked him to represent New Beijing at the next DNA show. Rekka accepted because they are now friends.

At the start of the show Daiki Shimomura pointed out that there are less fans in the crowd than usual today. He encouraged everyone to raise their efforts to have exciting matches for those who came to see them.


DNA “DNA 43” Results

DNA “DNA 43”, 05/04/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
127 Fans

1. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Semi-Final: Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo defeated MAO & Rising HAYATO when Jo pinned HAYATO with the Cross Rhodes (7:57).
2. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Semi-Final: Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu when Ueno pinned Iwasaki with a School Boy (7:52).
3. Worldwide Match: Mike Bailey defeated Brian Aki with a Buzzsaw Kick (9:05).

6. DNA Vs Naomi Kingdom: Keisuke Okuda defeated Shunma Katsumata by Referee Stoppage with the Sleeper Hold (10:15).
7. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Final: Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo defeated Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda when Yoshimura pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (16:39).

The Naomi Kingdom duo of Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo have swept through the tag tournament, first eliminating MAO & Rising HAYATO in the semi final. They then beat the young team of Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda in the final. The winners were given a portrait of Sanshiro Takagi along with a 3,000 yen cash prize. Yoshimura was angered by getting such a pitiful prize and stomped on the portrait. He then threatened to crash the first episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” taking place next week.

Ueno & Takeda beat Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu in the other semi final when Nakatsu accidentally hit Iwasaki with a High Kick meant for Ueno.

Shunma Katsumata thought his recent hardcore wrestling experience would prepare him for anything that Keisuke Okuda would throw at him. But it wasn’t. Okuda threw Katsumata around ringside including into the front row seats. Katsumata fought his way back but a Sleeper Hold took him out of the match. Katsumata would like a rematch but fears DNA will not give it to him.

Choun-Shiryu drank from a flask so he could use drunken kung fu against Rekka. It worked so well that Rekka took out his own flask so he could use drunk kung fu too. Shiryu trapped Rekka in a Kangaroo Lock, an elevated Double Arm Trapped Crab Hold. Rekka couldn’t tap out so the referee stopped the match and declared Shiryu the winner. Shiryu said backstage that history is written by the winners and for the last 4,000 years China is the winner. The history of China in DDT begins and ends with Choun-Shiryu!

Yuki Iino announced he will return to action for DNA in June. He only wrestled in two matches for DNA before his injury so he understands if nobody remembers what he is like in the ring. He wants to make up for lost time and show what he gained during his recovery time.

This is the last DDT show before “JUDGEMENT 2018” a week later. The two matches I have the most interest in are Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Kota Umeda and Ethan Page Vs Naomi Yoshimura. Two fresh grudges for different reasons. Umeda is facing his former “brother” one on one while Page wants to show he is much stronger than Yoshimura.

4. DDT Extreme Title: Yuko Miyamoto (c) Vs Mike Bailey

Mike Bailey gets the DDT Extreme Title shot. The match stipulation has yet to be decided by Yuko Miyamoto.

High stakes are being made by Sanshiro Takagi. He is making himself and Toru Owashi put their DDT careers on the line against two unknown opponents. Whoever takes the losing fall in the match will no longer be allowed inside a DDT ring ever again. Usually when this happens the losing wrestler discovers a long lost foreign relative to take his place.

2. Ethan Page defeated Tomoya Hirata with the Spinning Dwayne (9:30).

6. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Kota Umeda & Shunma Katsumata when Iwasaki pinned Katsumata with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster (15:04).

Round 1 is in the books and is highlighted by the DNA/BASARA combination of Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu beating Kota Umeda & Shunma Katsumata. Nakatsu drilled Katsumata with a Head Kick then threw him over with a Dragon Suplex. Iwasaki finished him off with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster for the three count.

The Naomi Kingdom had mixed results in the first round but their presence was felt for sure. Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo eliminated Gran MilliMeters to advance to the semi final. However Keisuke Okuda & Kengo got themselves disqualified against Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda. Okuda & Kengo kept assaulting their opponents until the referee tried to stop them. They turned their attacks to the referee and got themselves DQ’ed as a result.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka were plagued by bumping into each other multiple times late in the opening match. Rising HAYATO got them to collide one more time and MAO hit Rekka with the Michinoku Driver I to win the match. Shiryu & Rekka argued with each other as they walked away from the ring. Backstage Rekka says Taiwan and China do not match. He now hates Chinese people and doesn’t want to team with a Chinese wrestler ever again!

The semi-finals on 5th April are MAO & Rising HAYATO Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo and Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu. MAO said his team will control DNA with young power. HAYATO usually doesn’t get many chances to wrestle inside Shin-Kiba 1st RING. He wants to win the tournament so he can wrestle there more often. Nakatsu told everyone he is only here to win the prize money.

Minoru Tanaka used his match against Mizuki Watase to prepare for his GHC Jr. Tag Team Title shot at the 11th March NOAH show. He went through his normal preparation by eating bento steak before the match. He was impressed by Watase and even believed he could have lost to him. Tanaka said he would like to wrestle him again then came up with an idea to have a tag team match next time. He is available to appear at “DNA 43” on 5th April.

It frustrates him but he has BASARA to fight for. He said it is a place for guys like Hi69 to step up. He will continue to fight for now and beyond. He thanked the fans for cheering for him. Oh, and also for cheering Hi69.

There was no love lost between Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA. Both of them lost their cool and could not be separated. Kyohei Wada couldn’t regain control of the match and disqualified both of them. They were finally kept apart by the other wrestlers at ringside. The match counts as a draw so both of them received a point. However Tsukamoto cannot qualify for the final. That goes to the winner of FUMA Vs Hiroshi Fukuda on Sunday.

In the match between Hiroshi Fukuda and Daichi Kazato, Fukuda kept offering to shake Kazato’s hand. Whenever Kazato reached out to accept it Fukuda lifted his own arm into the air and yelled “Hooooooo!”. Even when Fukuda beat him to keep him out of the final, Kazato saw the funny side and smiled.

Ryu Gouma brought in two “beleaguered foreigners” to help him fight Cavalry. The foreigners turned out to be Heddi French and Choun-Shiryu, making this Shiryu’s BASARA debut. Gouma wanted to help solve his partner’s problems. Cavlry protested Shiryu’s entry into the match and he reminded them he is Chinese. Gouma said the unjust discrimination shown by Cavalry should be solved with legal fighting and the match began. French admitted learning Japanese is difficult. Gouma encouraged him because he was able to say that in Japanese. During the match everyone in Cavalry decided to share their problems with Gouma. Ryota Nakatsu was worried that no one in the audience will go to the Drop Kick Bar after the show. Gouma told him at least two people will. Ryuichi Sekine complained that his liver function is insanely high and he can’t donate blood because of it. Gouma said his problem might involve uric acid so he should take medicine for it. Koji Iwamoto didn’t want to tell anyone his problems. Sekine cut in and said he hates sweet peppers. The match broke down into a brawl and Iwamoto gave his finisher on Gouma onto his statute book to win the match for Cavalry.

In his final match for the Heaven Summit tournament, SAGAT finally grabbed a victory. He beat Yusuke Kubo to end his losing streak and was so happy he hugged the referee down onto the ring mat. With no more matches left in the tournament SAGAT is looking forward to the future. First up is a Hardcore Match against Takumi Tsukamoto this Sunday.
