October 18, 2017

An update about Dai Suzuki was posted on the DDT website two days ago. The injury he suffered at “DNA 37” turned out to be a partially fractured left knee. He will be out of action with no prediction of a return date yet.

Nonoko & Azusa Takigawa have split up and are going their separate ways to both become stronger. Whoever gets the winning fall in the main event will probably declare themselves the No. 1 Contender for the TOKYO Princess Title. Plus now we have the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles so the existing teams will be climbing for a shot at the belts too.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs DAMNATION
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles are up for grabs. ALL OUT are in the match because they were supposed to get a title shot against Shuten-dōji until KUDO got injured. DAMNATION was chosen to be the other team but their line-up is being kept secret for now. The group currently has four members but some of them are pretty busy right now. Daisuke Sasaki has his hands full with championships and other people’s money. Shuji Ishikawa is currently wrestling in other promotions. There has been something building between DAMNATION and Nobuhiro Shimatani lately. The rookie was tricked into thinking he was joining the group during the Seijo Hall show earlier this month but it was just a mind game to beat him up. He has also been positioned as their ringside attendant for their matches. Could he become a new member?

Konosuke Takeshita entered the 58th Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships this past weekend. He finished in 12th place and qualified for the 52nd All Japan Student Bodybuilding Championships happening later this year. However after discussing the event with his doctor, Takeshita decided to withdraw from the competition. The preparation for the Kanto event took a toll on his body and continuing on that path would also interfere with his pro wrestling schedule. So Takeshita will put his focus on wrestling from now on.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganjo Super Battle: Ami Kanda & HARUKAZE Vs Sumire Natsu & Saki
2. 3rd Generation Vs 3rd Generation ~I Am The Grandson Panda! I Do Not Need Two Pandas In The Pro Wrestling World~: Chikara Vs J-Soul Pandita III IV
3. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Shota
4. Ganbare The Tryout: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter Vs Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin
5. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka Vs X

Ken Ohka wanted Daisuke Sasaki to come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling for another match so he could win his money back. However DDT has a show on the same day so even if Sasaki wanted to come over he won’t be able to. Instead, Sasaki has promised to send over a hired assassin to keep Ohka busy. It won’t be a DAMNATION wrestler because they will also be at the DDT show. Ohka accepts the challenge, thinking if he beats this mystery opponent it will make him the No. 1 Contender for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title.

More Ganbare gimmicks are being created to encourage sales of Ganbare The Great masks. Ganpuro staff pretty much said that Yukihiro Abe and Ultraman Robin are going to be Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin.

The appearance of Andre The Giant Panda in Big Japan has spurred Ganpuro to bring back J-Soul Pandita III IV. The creature has not wrestled in over a year.

October 15, 2017

7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (16:14).
*DAMNATION acquires all of Ken Ohka’s money (690,619 Yen).

Once again Daisuke Sasaki has beaten Ken Ohka and taken all of his money. A grand total of 690,619 yen was on the line for the main event tag match. Even though Ohka had HARASHIMA on his side, Sasaki had Tetsuya Endo ready to keep him busy. Ohka’s chance to hit the Fire Spear was countered into the Cross Facelock and there was no escape for him. Sasaki took the envelope full of cash after the match. He now had so much money he felt like it could drive him crazy. He loves this feeling so much that he won’t quit wrestling after all. He wants to win more gold and money so he can get an even bigger buzz. He gave Mad Paulie 10,000 yen and Endo 30,000 yen to go spend at a love bar. Sasaki then asked Ohka how old his newborn kid is. Ohka said 9 months old. Sasaki gave Ohka 1,000 yen so he can go get the kid some milk. When DAMNATION left the ring Sasaki also handed Nobuhiro Shimatani 10,000 yen while he was carrying their stuff out of the room. Ohka swore revenge and said this isn’t the end. He is now a father with a young family. Ohka will show Sasaki eventually how strong he is because of his fatherhood.

Danshoku Dino developed a new submission move called the Strangle Hold P. Those who know about the different Strangle Hold submissions Kensuke Sasaki used to do will have an idea what it looks like. But since this is Dino doing the move it also involved the victim, Yuki Ueno in this instance, getting Dino’s crotch pressed against his face in the process. After the match Dino told Ueno he had to give him his pants for losing the match. Ueno refused and he told Dino how much he hated being put in that move. Dino decided not to take his pants because Ueno was honest with his feelings in the ring. It turns out that was the lesson Dino wanted to teach him today and his plan worked. Dino then noticed Konosuke Takeshita was watching him from a distance. Dino told him this is his way of life. DDT is his way of life. Takeshita will have to show him his way of life soon when they clash for the KO-D Openweight Title.

Takeshita countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstacy into a Hurricanrana for the win. Akito wanted to know why was the vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles not put up for grabs today? ALL OUT just beat NωA and they were the previous champions before Shuten-dōji. Why does ALL OUT have to fight DAMNATION for the belts? Takeshita told Akito not to worry. He will be in perfect condition for the vacant title match on 2nd November. But first, he has to compete in the Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships taking place tomorrow.

Both KUDO and Kota Umeda were at ringside to support the rest of Shuten-dōji in their match. Masahiro Takanashi wanted to hold a toast to celebrate Shuten-dōji’s full reunion for the first time in ages but KUDO isn’t allowed to drink alcohol while he is recovering, Yukio Sakaguchi is driving later and Umeda will not drink until after his return match. Takanashi told the fans he will be drinking alone tonight.

7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo Vs HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka

The conflict over Ken Ohka’s money continues. Daisuke Sasaki tried to withdraw all of Ohka’s money from the bank this week but discovered his account was empty. When Sasaki crashed a Ganbare☆Wrestling show to get an explanation both he and Ohka found out that Yumehito Imanari took out the money to both protect and invest in it. Sasaki and Ohka agreed to a tag match on this show where the winner takes it all. Ohka got his money back and brought it to DDT HQ to count all of it. Hisaya Imabayashi confirmed that 691,619 yen is the full amount being put on the line. Sasaki chose Tetsuya Endo to be his partner while HARASHIMA offered to help out Ohka, both because he is a friend and also so he can fight Sasaki before their DDT Extreme Title match.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

Sasaki has decided his match with HARASHIMA will now be a TLC Match! He says in pro wrestling you have to fight using your own physical body. Sasaki admits that HARASHIMA’s body is better than his own so that’s why he’s bringing in tables, ladders and chairs to swing the odds in his favour. That’s not to say HARASHIMA is new to the stipulation. He won the KO-D Tag Team Titles with KUDO in a TLC Match way back in 2003.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The circumstances surrounding the next KO-D Tag Titles defence are not good but Shuten-dōji still wanted another shot. The previous match prematurely ended when KUDO suffered a concussion from a fluke collision with Naomichi Marufuji’s knee. Masahiro Takanashi misses KUDO but he decided that letting other teams challenge for the titles will eventually lose him the opportunity to win the belts from HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji. So he and Yukio Sakaguchi are getting their shot next. Takanashi said they are not motivated by getting revenge for what happened to KUDO. They are treating this match as a continuation of the previous match. HARASHIMA hopes that when KUDO returns they can still do a proper rematch for the titles.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “FAN APPRECIATION DAY ~KANSHA 2017~” Results

October 11, 2017

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “FAN APPRECIATION DAY ~KANSHA 2017~”, 11/10/2017
Tokyo Ichigaya Nankai Memorial Clinic
64 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganjo Super Fight In Ichigaya: Kaho Kobayashi defeated HARUKAZE with the 120% School Boy (4:49).
2. Who Is X??: Showtime Hart defeated Chinsuke Nakamura with a Sleeper Cutback (7:12).
3. Ganpuro Special Tag Match In Ichigaya: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Great pinned Imanari with the Fire Spear (8:53).
4. Special Bonus Track ~ Volunteer Ganbare☆Rumble: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Ken Ohka with the Cross Facelock (8:53).
Order Of Elimination: Chinsuke Nakamura, HARUKAZE, Shuichiro Katsumura, Ganbare The Great, Shota, Yumehito Imanari, Ken Ohka.

Ganbare☆Wrestling put together a small fan appreciation show inside the Ichigaya Nankai Memorial Clinic. Since the room is so small there was no wrestling ring. Instead some mats were placed down next to a wall with two big empty window frames in it. The main event was an open invitation Royal Rumble with eliminations occurring by pinfall, submission or being thrown out of the room through one of the window frames. As an added bonus, the winner of the match would get a portion of today’s revenue from the ticket sales as a prize. This led to Daisuke Sasaki crashing the show and winning the match after attacking Ken Ohka with a chair. Once again Sasaki was stealing money from Ohka.

Sasaki sat down next to the beaten Ohka and took out his stolen savings book. Sasaki said he went to the bank to withdraw all of Ohka’s money only to find out the account was empty! It turned out Ohka still had his bank card and the money was already taken out while Sasaki was too hungover to visit the bank. Sasaki knows Ohka’s PIN number so he demanded Ohka give him the card so he can go get the 710,000 yen. Ohka refused and demanded the return of his cash and savings book. Sasaki was confused. He thought Ohka already had his money. That’s when Yumehito Imanari confessed it was he who went to the bank to get the cash. He also knows Ohka’s PIN number so it was easy to withdraw from the account. Imanari also admitted the cash prize for today’s show was just a ruse to lure Sasaki to the show and deceive him. That’s not all. Imanari discovered Ohka often uses a Family Mart T-Point card to save money and worked out a way to triple Ohka’s savings if he can take everything back from Sasaki! Ohka promised to get his money back, triple it, build up Ganpro and also to change his PIN number.

Ganbare The Great had a silly request for the Special Tag Match. He wanted himself & Ganbare The Shooter to swap identities with Ohka & Imanari for the match. So we had Minoru Fujita & Shuichiro Katsumura wrestle as Ohka & Imanari respectively while Ohka & Imanari wore the Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter masks. Imanari decided to wrestle like a masked man and did Gran Naniwa’s Crab Walk on the window frame. Fujita pinned him with the Fire Spear. He continued to impersonate Ohka afterwards and said he will continue to say bad things every day, every week and every month. Ohka in character as Fujita promised to start paying his child support again. The two teams hugged each other and everyone had fun. Except for the referee Daisuke Kiso, he didn’t want anything to do with it.

Shota came out to the mat dressed in his normal clothing to announce he could not wrestle today because of an injury. He said his replacement was Showtime Hart. He then took off his clothes to reveal he was wearing pink and green wrestling gear underneath. This is his Showtime Hart gimmick. His mystery opponent turned out to be Chinsuke Nakamura. Hart demanded a “This Is Wrestling” chant while he had Chinsuke in a Cobra Twist. Chinsuke applied a Sleeper Hold but Hart fell back on top of him to get the three count.

Kaho Kobayashi took the time in her match to complain about the “Pro Wrestling Cannonball” movie that was made in 2014. She participated in the filming of the project but all of her appearances were cut from the movie save for a one second cameo somewhere. Ohka approached her after the match to apologise and offer her a spot in the Ganbare☆Rumble. She turned it down because she had to travel to Odate for another wrestling show taking place tomorrow.

Sapporo Susukino Mars Gym
414 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Modified Cobra Clutch (8:20).
2. Idol! Gongitsune! Model! 3 Way Match: Makoto Oishi defeated Antonio Honda and Saki Akai when Oishi pinned Honda with the Jikiden Tornado Clutch (9:13).

6. Sapporo Specialty! Special 6-Man Tag Match From The North: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Iwasaki with the Surprise Rose (10:27).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi by TKO when Marufuji knocked out KUDO (14:17).
*V2 for HarashiMarufuji.

The main event was stopped after a freak accident when Naomichi Marufuji did a cartwheel past KUDO to counter an Irish Whip and he accidentally clipped him in the head with his knee, knocking KUDO out cold. KUDO was taken to the nearby hospital and was diagnosed with a concussion. Marufuji apologised to everyone for the accident and takes the blame for what happened. HARASHIMA tried to cheer up Marufuji and told everyone that as much as they prepare for their matches, what happens in the ring can get beyond their control. Marufuji promised to continue defending the KO-D Tag Team Titles until KUDO can challenge them again so they can finish their match.

Danshoku Dino’s latest round of mind games against Konosuke Takeshita didn’t work today. He told everyone that one way to damage the heart of the champion is to make him lose to a wrestler with a shallow career, so Dino’s plan was to make Kouki Iwasaki beat Takeshita. Producer Dino motivated Iwasaki by giving him a grand entrance with the fans showing their support. Dino then told everyone about Iwasaki’s experience playing football, the best fighting sport. Iwasaki’s kicks were developed from his football skills. Dino told Iwasaki that he can double the power of his Penalty Kick by running the ropes twice. According to Dino it is powerful enough to pin wrestlers for four seconds. Iwasaki did the Penalty Kick to Takeshita during the match but Takeshita kicked out at two. He then hit back with a Big Boot and got the win over Iwasaki’s team with the Surprise Rose. It’s back to the drawing board for Dino.

Daisuke Sasaki claimed that today would be his final match before he emptied Ken Ohka’s bank account and become the Million Dollar Man. He gave an emotional speech thanking the rest of DAMNATION for their time together. Tetsuya Endo wiped tears from his eyes, hugged Sasaki and urged Mad Paulie to do the same. Sasaki said now he is leaving wrestling Endo will have to move back into his parent’s house and Paulie will have to go back to his home too. He also asked the fans to continue cheering Shuji Ishikawa even though he isn’t here today because he works so hard in his matches. Sasaki gathered the present DAMNATION wrestlers together to say their catchphrase, apparently for the last time.

Tomoya and Kazuki Hirata had a musical duel singing both of their entrance songs a cappella. Hirata chopped Tomoya during his song then Tomoya and the rest of his team Super Kicked Hirata when he performed leading to the finish.

Antonio Honda did not want to fight Saki Akai during the 3 Way Match. He held back from hitting her whenever he had the opportunity to. He even tried to take Akai’s place whenever Makoto Oishi attacked her. Honda confessed his admiration for Akai but she turned him down. That’s when Honda turned sides and now had no problem wrestling her. Oishi joined in and held Akai down so Honda could hit the Diving Fist Drop. However Oishi raised Akai’s foot to block Honda and Oishi then gave him the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to steal the pin.


DDT “HOW ABOUT SUNDAY 2017” Results

DDT “HOW ABOUT SUNDAY 2017”, 08/10/2017
Sapporo Susukino Mars Gym

1. Akito, Diego & Saki Akai defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Akito pinned Hirata with the Hanamasa (8:45).
2. Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Tomoya & Antonio Honda when Takanashi pinned Honda with the Takatonic (12:25).
3. Keisuke Ishii & Koji Yoshida defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshida pinned Shimatani with the Emerald Flowsion (10:14).
4. DAMNATION Vs NωA!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Sasaki submitted Oishi with the Cross Facelock (11:55).
5. Fierce Fight! Dong Bang Battle!: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Goten (13:50).
6. Sapporo Specialty! Sea Urchin, Scallop, Cuttlefish, Crab Bowl Special 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Danshoku Dino, HARASHIMA and KUDO when Takeshita pinned Dino with a Gaydo Clutch (15:10).

The 4 Way Main event split off into two stories, Konosuke Takeshita Vs Danshoku Dino and HARASHIMA Vs KUDO. While all four fought each other throughout the match, those two pairings got the most focus. KUDO gave Dino a Buzzsaw Kick and had HARASHIMA pinned with the Diving Double Knee Stop. But Takeshita stopped the count by lifting KUDO up with a German Suplex. With KUDO and HARASHIMA both out of the ring, Dino ducked under Takeshita’s Lariat and he trapped him in the Lip Lock. Dino went for the Gaydo Clutch but Takeshita reversed it with a Gaydo Clutch of his own to get the three count. HARASHIMA and KUDO had a staredown before they both left the ring. Takeshita told Dino after the match that he figured out his weakness. What works best against Dino is an eye for and eye, a tooth for a tooth and fighting fire with fire. Dino is weak against his own Danshoku style! Dino said it is no good that a straight wrestler pretends to be gay to beat him. Takeshita pointed out that it worked for him today. Dino called it a fluke. He said Takeshita is afraid of the Danshoku style and creating his own to combat it will not work in the end. He will eventually learn how much depth there is to the style and it isn’t something Dino does for his own self-interests.

Both Kazusada Higuchi and Kouki Iwasaki were motivated to be at their best today because the show was in their home prefecture of Hokkaido. Higuchi won the match and described it as an emotional event. He hopes to continue working hard for DDT and see DNA do the same.

Daisuke Sasaki announced he will be cashing out of Ken Ohka’s bank account on 10th October when he returns to Tokyo. He believes the money will make him the Million Dollar Man and he’ll be so rich he will never have to wrestle again. He claims tomorrow’s match will be his last.


DDT “WRESTLE OYAMA” Results

DDT “WRESTLE OYAMA”, 07/10/2017

142 Fans

1. Oyama NωA Festa! Single 3rd Bout ~Red Volume~: Shunma Katsumata defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Swan Dive X Factor (8:05).
2. Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Ishii pinned Hirata with the Kneel Kick (8:36).

6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Iwasaki with a Lariat (17:12).

Each NωA member had a different motivation for their match today. Shunma Katsumata wanted to beat Daiki Shimomura one on one to prepare for their upcoming tag team match in DNA later this week. Katsumata won with a Thrust Kick, Buzzsaw Kick and the Swan Dive X Factor. Next, Makoto Oishi had never lost to Masahiro Takanashi in a singles match. He also prepared a secret weapon ready, the Headlock! Unfortunately, Takanashi had a secret weapon of his own and it was the Hammerlock. After a back and forth battle between the two moves, Takanashi countered a Headlock into a Cradle to get the three count. Lastly, MAO was sacrificing himself so he could turn Oyama back to normal after Danshoku Dino turned it into a Gay Town the last time he was here. In return, Dino demanded that if he won the match he would get MAO’s underwear. MAO would have won when he hit the Screw Kick but Daisuke Kiso was already knocked down by an accidental Lip Lock. When MAO revived him, Dino gave MAO the Lip Lock and Danshoku Driver to win. Both Oishi and Katsumata offered to give their underwear to Dino instead. Dino was touched by their passion to protect MAO and he revealed that today’s series of matches were meant to test NωA’s loyalty to each other. Their underwear would be saved.

The ALL OUT and Shuten-dōji wrestlers got into a fight after the main event. When they were pulled apart, Konosuke Takeshita reminded Shuten-dōji that they have a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence against them in Yokohama next week. So enjoy your drinks now because they won’t have a chance to have any toasts in Yokohama! Diego called himself a Chilean who wants their belts. Akito said he wants to win the titles for Diego so he can become a champion.

Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at Antonio Honda to break up his Octopus Hold on Mad Paulie. Then during the brawl Paulie pinned Honda with the Paulie Buster. Sasaki tried to attack HARASHIMA with the chair after the match but HARASHIMA stopped him with a High Kick. When asked if he had gone to the bank today to take out all of Ken Ohka’s money, Sasaki admitted he overslept, woke up at 5pm and had no time to go there.

Neither Kazuki Hirata or Kazusada Higuchi made their expected entrances for Match #2. When Hirata’s music played, Higuchi walked out carrying an unconscious Hirata! Higuchi told everyone he got so sick of hearing Hirata’s dance practice before the show that he did something to stop it. Toru Owashi was angry at what Higuchi did, not just because Hirata is his friend but also because he now had to fight a Handicap Match againsy Higuchi & Keisuke Ishii. Luckily, Owashi accidentally struck Hirata during the fight and it woke him up so the tag match went ahead as planned.
