Busy day for Masato Tanaka. He went into today’s episode of DDT TV SHOW focused on meeting his closest challenger Tetsuya Endo in a tag match. With the help of a Reverse Hurricanrana from HARASHIMA, Tanaka knocked out Endo with the Sliding D. The duo then picked apart Soma Takao until the inevitable victory.

A revived Endo tried to confront Tanaka after the match but he was suddenly interrupted by Shinya Aoki! He came out to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet for a KO-D Openweight Title shot right away! From the start Aoki targeted Tanaka’s arm and used a Key Lock to put his opponent in immediate danger. Tanaka escaped the ring after a rope break and challenged Aoki to come fight him outside. Aoki avoided being ambushed with a chair and again went after Tanaka’s left arm. It was a valuable tactic that cut off Tanaka whenever he tried to fight back. It took one opening for Tanaka to beat Aoki. He used a pin to break out of a Cross Armbreaker and then struck Aoki with the Sliding D. The surprise was enough to keep Aoki down for the three count! The two bowed to each other after the match.

Another Right To Challenge Gauntlet has been vanquished. One more is left but there is also the KO-D Challenger Sword held by Endo. It was decided by Hisaya Imabayashi that Endo’s title shot will take place at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020 DAY 2” on 7th June! Endo said he does not care about MAO being the last remaining Gauntlet holder, he is entirely focused on hunting Tanaka to win the KO-D Title! Tanaka said whether it is Endo or MAO kneeling in front of him, he will continue to hold the KO-D Title until he goes to Saitama Super Arena!

Yoshihiko has made a clean sweep through ALL OUT! The final battle in the “ALL OUT, All Dead” campaign saw the doll defeat Konosuke Takeshita in a mighty conflict. Takeshita swung Yoshihiko round in circles, Yoshihiko did the Styles Clash, Takeshita did an Avalanche Brainbuster to the outside. There was nothing either wrestler wouldn’t do to win. That includes relying on others. The other ALL OUT members interfered to help out their partner. They then ganged up on Yoshihiko after the referee got accidentally knocked out. All looked lost when suddenly the lights went out. When they came back on Yoshihiko was joined by another battle doll. It was the return of Akihiro! Together they sent ALL OUT packing and left Takeshita begging for mercy. They gave him a Double Canadian Destroyer. Yoshihiko had the match won but it picked Takeshita back up and gave him the Reincarnation to win with authority. The lights went out again as the two dolls stared down at their defeated enemy.

MAO was pulled from the show at the last minute because of an injury so the DDT UNIVERSAL Title was now being defended in a 3 Way Match. At first Daisuke Sasaki and Chris Brookes only wanted to fight each other so Naomi Yoshimura couldn’t get a look in. From there it was a scramble to get the win. Brookes gave Yoshimura the Praying Mantis Bomb but Sasaki threw him out of the ring and stole the three count to remain as champion.

Brookes called the result a load of shit. Sasaki taunted him by saying he will never get the UNIVERSAL Title back. He then gave Brookes a Low Blow and threw him out again. Sasaki announced his next challenger will be Shunma Katsumata because he wants to have a Hardcore Match and also Katsumata is the weakest member of ALL OUT. Katsumata came out carrying a baseball bat covered in toy blocks. He admitted he has never beaten Sasaki but if “Super Hardcore Shunma” even has a 1% chance of winning, he will take it. Suddenly Isami Kodaka made his return to DDT and entered the ring. He has won all of DDT’s main championships but this UNIVERSAL Title is new to him. Sasaki accepted Kodaka’s challenge and told Katsumata he had no need for him anymore. Katsumata struck Sasaki with the bat causing a fight to break out between the three of them. Imabayashi calmed everyone down and decided they will have a Hardcore 3 Way Match for the title. Sasaki wasn’t conscious at this point so everyone assumed he’d be okay with it. Meanwhile Brookes is pissed off he can’t get a one on one match with Sasaki for the title.

Ambushing Jun Akiyama with his own Jumping Knee Attack is a good way to show you’re taking a match seriously so well done Mizuki Watase. Trying to beat him with a Front Necklock also takes some balls. In the end though Akiyama hit his own Knee Strikes and won with the Exploder Suplex. It will take some time but Akiyama hopes to train the DDT wrestlers to put more weight and soul into their Elbow Smash exchanges.

Yuki Iino threw his weight around in Match #2. He hit a Double Spear to Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Naya. Then when Akito put Naya in the Figure 4 Leg Lock, Iino hit him with a low level Spear leading to Naya tapping out.

Lately whenever Danshoku Dieno and Antonio Honda fight over the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title their matches just seem to fall apart. This time Honda channeled the power of Gongitsune to possess other people. Dieno could resist it by putting his hands over his ears but for people like Hideki Okatani, Keigo Nakamura, Daisuke Kiso and Hisaya Imabayashi they could not be as fortunate. Honda’s plan backfired when the Gongitsune group turned on him, forcing him to be possessed by his own power! Together they all ganged up on Dieno until the room went dark. Dieno woke up in his own home. It was just a nightmare. Or was it? When he left the room we found out Okatani was hiding underneath the covers, still possessed by Gongitsune…

1. Akito & Yuki Iino Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Naya
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Danshoku Dieno (c) Vs Antonio Jonda
3. Special Tag Match: Masato Tanaka & HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao

5. Jun Akiyama Vs Mizuki Watase
6. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Keigo Nakamura
7. DDT UNIVERSAL Title – 4 Way Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Chris Brookes Vs Naomi Yoshimura Vs MAO

The DDT TV SHOW is now established on the schedule with more weekly episodes taking place until at least 20th June. Daisuke Sasaki has to defend the DDT UNIVERSAL Title against three wrestlers who all want to take the belt from him. Shinya Aoki versus Keigo Nakamura for the DDT Extreme Title finally takes place. Mizuki Watase dug up the courage to challenge Jun Akiyama. After last week’s calamity of a match, Danshoku Dieno and Antonio Honda get a re-do for their Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title bout.

Next, let’s move over to the KO-D Openweight Title scene. Tetsuya Endo regained the KO-D Challenger Sword and can now challenge Masato Tanaka for the title whenever he wants. Tanaka is coming in to face Endo in a tag match. One bad result for Endo will dash his plans for a second time and whether it is Tanaka or HARASHIMA who pins him it will be another wild twist in the title scene. Or maybe Soma Takao throws a wrench in and beats Tanaka himself?

And let’s not forget about Yoshihiko’s blood feud with ALL OUT. The doll has checked off every member from its list, except for Konosuke Takeshita. This is the last stand for ALL OUT. Either Takeshita banished the threat or it’s a total party kill.

DDT has been privately experimenting with remote pro wrestling matches this week. The tests so far have been successful so they are now taking it public for a spin. This Friday matches will be held along with a Zoom broadcast featuring 100 fans virtually cheering and interacting with the wrestlers. DDT will tweet out a link to their Zoom waiting room at around 4:30pm JST and allow the first 100 people to participate in the experiment. The matches will be announced before the show takes place.

Since this is their first attempt at a public experiment please be aware that usernames will be visible to everyone and if a participant on video or audio is found misbehaving they will be forced to leave. Also matches could get interrupted or even cancelled if the stream quality becomes unreliable that day.
