1. Masahiro Takanashi, Antonio Honda & Samara defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Samara pinned Hirata with a Crucifix Pin (8:44).
2. 3 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Tetsuya Endo and MAO when Takao pinned MAO with the Official Endless Waltz (6:39).
3. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Yuki Ueno when Yoshimura pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (9:04).
4. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kota Umeda defeated Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki when KUDO pinned Iwasaki with the Diving Double Knee Strike (7:44).
5. No. 1 In DDT Men’s Battle: HARASHIMA defeated Mizuki Watase with the Somato (13:42).
6. Road To KO-D! Nagoya, Love Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Sasaki submitted Akito with La Mistica Crossover Facelock (20:11).

A Low Blow led to Daisuke Sasaki getting the Crossover Facelock on Akito to end the main event. Sasaki reminded Mad Paulie that he is banned from singing and dancing until Shuji Ishikawa beats Konosuke Takeshita for the KO-D Openweight Title at Sumo Hall next month. Since Ishikawa couldn’t sing, he instead told the crowd that Tetsuya Endo is intentionally growing his hair out for a new style. This embarrassed Endo.

Mizuki Watase was all business for his match against HARASHIMA. He wanted to show how much he has grown since their last match together and believed it would be enough to become the number one guy in DDT. Sadly for him, HARASHIMA drilled him with a Hurricane Driver and hit the Somato to win the match.

Danshoku Dino argued that Shuten-dōji are not back to full strength just because Kota Umeda returned from injury. He also complained about CyberAgent banning his Danshoku Nightmare VR move. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to calm him down but Dino didn’t care anymore and gave him the Nightmare VR. He then used the move on KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi during the match. Shuten-dōji got revenge by forcing Dino to do the move on his tag partner Kouki Iwasaki, leaving easy pickings for KUDO to finish him off.

The finish to Match #3 had Naomi Yoshimura attacking Yuki Ueno with a chair while Keisuke Okuda distracted the referee. Yoshimura then pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb.

Samara battled Kazuki Hirata’s dancing with her own Bollywood dancing. The Bollywood dance was so powerful that it made everyone else join in with her instead of Hirata’s dance. Samara then rolled up Hirata for the three count then everyone went back to dancing.

7. Road To KO-D! ‘Hama Special Tag Match: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Endo pinned Katsumata with the Shooting Star Press (16:26).

Konosuke Takeshita and Shuji Ishikawa will have plenty of chances to know each other’s strengths as their Sumo Hall preview series of matches continued today. Ishikawa said that his body will not break before 25th March. Daisuke Sasaki told everyone that Mad Paulie is not allowed to sing or dance to celebrate Ishikawa’s victories until Ishikawa beats Takeshita at Sumo Hall. Both Ishikawa and Paulie were shocked to hear this news.

Kazusada Higuchi said he is feeling good again after his latest match with HARASHIMA involved. Higuchi made Makoto Oishi submit to the Canadian Backbreaker to win. Next on his list of priorities is his match with Naomichi Marufuji in Korakuen Hall. Higuchi sees this as a big chance to beat one of the best pro wrestlers going today. He wants the fans expecting him to crush Marufuji!

After a month of intense exchanges in the ring, Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno fought each other one on one to settle their differences. Umeda’s kicks overwhelmed Ueno but he took as many of them as he could before falling to the Umeda Driver. The two shook hands after the match but Ueno was still in a bad mood. He explained backstage that he is frustrated because he wants to become stronger but hasn’t felt any change in him recently. He doesn’t dislike Umeda, he is just angry that Umeda was able to advance his skills after coming back from a serious injury.

DAMNATION have awoken something dark and evil inside Danshoku Dino. He was taken out of his tag match when Daisuke Sasaki injured him with a chair attack. Keisuke Ishii had to fight on his own and was on the verge of tapping out to the Cross Facelock when Great Muta style chanting could be heard around the room. Dino came back as The Great Homo and spat a milk like mist at everyone in the ring! The match was stopped but The Great Homo continued his rampage. He took out a metal spike and attacked Sasaki with it, aiming for his ass. Sasaki was able to escape when other wrestlers at ringside pulled Dino away from him.

The BASARA team showed they are united towards achieving their goal of winning the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. They came out to the BASARA theme song instead of their own. When they won today’s match, Ryota Nakatsu & Fuminori Abe mocked Shuten-dōji by taking out cans of beer from under the ring and holding their own victory toast. An angry Yukio Sakaguchi chased them away from the ring.

Antonio Honda tried to impress Samara by telling his story about “Gon, The Little Fox” in English.

KUDO was mostly ignored by Toru Owashi and Daiki Shimomura in the 3 Way Match. Both of them even yelled at him to stop interfering in their fight. Owashi finally allowed KUDO to get involved by asking him to do the Diving Double Knee Drop to Shimomura. But when KUDO climbed the ropes, Owashi grabbed Shimomura and pinned him with La Magistral Cradle. Afterwards KUDO said he was relieved that his daughter wasn’t here to see this match nor will she be allowed to watch it on DDT UNIVERSE.


YAROZ “YAROZ PART 6” Results

February 6, 2018

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 6”, 06/02/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
227 Fans – No Vacancy

2. Worldwide Greatest Funny YaroZ Diva Tag Match: Samara & Saori Anou defeated Cherry & Nao Kakuta when Anou pinned Kakuta with the Pottering (10:14).

5. YaroZ Specialty! Special 4 Way Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Danshoku Dino, Antonio Honda and Kikutaro when Sekine pinned Dino with a School Boy (9:34).
6. Naomi Kingdom (YaroZ) Vs BOYZ All Out Fight! Two: Kazusada Higuchi, Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi defeated Makoto Oishi, Mizuki Watase & Konosuke Takeshita when Ohka pinned Oishi with the Fire Spear (14:07).

The YaroZ returned but so too did their feud with BOYZ. The special guest gravure model Shihomi Yoshino was kidnapped by Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase during the show so it was up to Kazusada Higuchi, Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi to rescue her. The BOYZ had a secret weapon though. It wasn’t the towels they were wrestling in, it was Konosuke Takeshita as their mystery partner in the main event! But the combined power of manliness led the YaroZ to victory. Higuchi gave Oishi a Choke Slam, Ihashi followed up by doing the Kamigoe for the first time and Ohka finished it off with the Fire Spear. Oishi apologised on behalf of his team after the match but it was a trap to drop their guard so Takeshita could attack them. Saoru Anou, Samara and Nao Kakuta came to the rescue and sent the BOYZ packing. Higuchi invited Yoshino out for a drink after the show. She said yes but her manager came out and pulled her away from the ring complaining about how her client was treated today. Higuchi passed the invite over to the other women but they all turned him down. The rest of the YaroZ blamed Higuchi for ruining the show until Yoshino came back. She wanted to stop everyone from fighting and did so by stripping down to her swimsuit. Ohka thanked her because swimsuits make the world become peaceful. The other YaroZ had to hold him back because he was getting too excited.

The winner of the 4 Way Match would be given the right to date one of the female wrestlers who competed earlier in the show. Danshoku Dino pointed out he is gay so they agreed to let him date Yuki Ueno if he won. Dino was on track to win the match by setting Antonio Honda up for the Danshoku Driver but Ryuichi Sekine School Boy’d him for the flash three count. Sekine’s date prize would be decided by an entrance roulette performed by the women. When Sekine pressed the button it stopped on Cherry, much to his dismay. Cherry tried to flirt with him but Sekine turned Stone Cold, gave her a Stunner and drank some cans of beer afterward.

Nobuhiro Shimatani was originally supposed to be in the Kickboxing Match but he had to miss the show because of appendicitis. That may have been the best thing for him because Kohei Sato beat the hell out of his replacement Kazuki Hirata. The ring girl Shihomi Yoshino promised to take off a piece of clothing after every round until she was down to her swimsuit. No man in the building wanted to miss this so everyone did what they could to prevent the fight from being stopped even though Hirata was getting knocked out over and over. When it was clear that Hirata could not continue, there was a dash to find another replacement. One of the YaroZ MCs Brother Mon was forced to get into the ring against his will. He dodged a punch that hit Yukinori Matsui instead, knocking out the referee. Mon immediately gave up out of fear. A riot was about to break out among the wrestlers when Yoshino stopped all of them and promised to reveal the rest of her swimsuit. However her striptease was interrupted by the BOYZ wrestlers and they kidnapped her, leading to the main event showdown mentioned above.

Video staff member DT-YUTA returned to the ring for his first match in around nine years. He and his colleague Yumehito Imanari volunteered to fight against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi, mostly so they could take out their frustrations on their bosses. They attacked with chairs until Takagi & Owashi fought back. Takagi choked Imanari against the ropes while demanding him to update the DDT UNIVERSE archive. His comments angered one of the other staff members Ryohei Fukuda in the audience and spurred him to confront Takagi in the ring. Takagi kicked him down. As this was going on, Owashi swung a broom at Imanari but missed and hit Takagi instead. Fukuda then threw powder into Takagi’s eyes, YUTA Dropkicked Takagi and Imanari rolled him over in a School Boy for the three count. When the match was over Imanari & YUTA complained to Takagi about their low wages. Their list of demands included a higher salary, more overtime offers and improved workplace treatment. Fukuda also asked Takagi to create an environment that will allow DDT’s video staff to be more creative. Doing so will bring out their talents more. Takagi came up with an idea. On 23rd April in Shin-Kiba 1st RING, the DDT Video Staff will organise and produce their own show!

Kikutaro offered to be the assistant referee for the women’s tag match. Cherry felt upstaged by Samara’s Indian dancing so she attacked her. When Samara, Anou and Kakuta all ganged up on Cherry to stomp on her, Kikutaro ruled it was fair and joined in. Kikutaro’s behaviour later turned perverted and Kakuta kicked him between the legs in self defence. Tetsuya Koda was still there to continue the match as the official referee.

The two teams in the opening match were fighting over an erotic magazine. A box of tissues also found its way into the match.

7. The Mountain Of Akagi Is Far Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie when Akito submitted Paulie with the Perfect Figure 4 Leg Lock (14:46).

In the first preview of the “JUDGEMENT 2018” main event, ALL OUT beat DAMNATION but neither Konosuke Takeshita or Shuji Ishikawa were part of the finish. Both of them wound up outside the ring after Takeshita Clotheslined Ishikawa over the ropes. Akito took down Mad Paulie after targeting his legs and trapped him in the Perfect Figure 4 Leglock to win. Akito told Takeshita afterwards he will support him on the front line leading up to Sumo Hall. Takeshita said he got to train against the power of Ishikawa’s Lariats as well as his Knee Strikes today. They then invited Shunma Katsumata into the ring to talk about his upcoming DDT Extreme Title match on 25th February. Takeshita ended the show by announcing the main event for Korakuen Hall on 25th February. He is teaming up with HARASHIMA to take on Ishikawa and Daisuke Sekimoto!

Although Kazusada Higuchi’s team lost today, he still gestured at HARASHIMA that he will take his KO-D Tag Team Title belt. Higuchi is facing Naomichi Marufuji one on one in a preview of the tag title match.

Kazuki Hirata complained to Danshoku Dino about his matchmaking for their trios bout. Hirata didn’t want to team with his usual T2Hide partners because he thinks they have no future. There is a new generation in DDT featuring wrestlers like Keisuke Ishii, Mizuki Watase and himself. Based on these comments, Dino changed the match to himself, Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi against Hirata, Ishii & Watase in a battle between two generations. Dino’s team won but Watase had something to say afterwards. The New Generation weren’t able to beat the Super Generation today. But when Watase returns to Maebashi he promises to advance beyond the Super Generation! The two sides agreed to a rematch when DDT returns to Maebashi.

Daisuke Sasaki tried to flirt with Samara during the 3 Way Tag Match by asking her to make children with him. Samara was disgusted and pushed him away. He tried to give her the Vietnam Driver II but Joey Ryan saved her with a Super Kick to Sasaki. The match broke down until Tetsuya Endo and Masahiro Takanashi were left in the ring. Endo countered the Takatonic into the Torture Rack Bomb to win the match for DAMNATION.

Makoto Oishi was able to pin Antonio Honda with a European Clutch after Honda missed the Diving Fist Drop.

Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno continue to go after each other and had to be kept apart after their match again.

8. DDT Extreme Title – Hardcore Match: Yuko Miyamoto (c) defeated KUDO with the Moonsault (16:22).
*V1 for Yuko Miyamoto.

KUDO found himself in an unusal setting today. He fought Yuko Miyamoto in a Hardcore match featuring chairs, tables, ladders, pots and a barbed wire nunchucks that he brought himself. KUDO kicked out of the Fire Thunder through a table and was still in the match after another Fire Thunder but the Moonsault put his challenge to an end. Miyamoto thanked KUDO for letting him be involved in KUDO’s first ever Hardcore Match. He then said he will defend the DDT Extreme Title against anyone who wants to fight him. Shunma Katsumata answered the call. Miyamoto recognised him as that idol wrestler but Katsumata cut him off and said he has moved on to become an ALL OUT member. He asked if he could get the next title shot. Miyamoto accepted and the match will take place in Korakuen Hall on 25th February.

Before the main event took place, Joey Ryan and Antonio Honda came out promising to give the announcement of the century. They demanded Sanshiro Takagi to come out for his demand. Ryan asked Takagi if he could join T2Hide. Takagi thought about it until Ryan said he would become the leader of T2Hide and also the president of DDT. Takagi turned him down. He doesn’t care about the T2Hide leadership but taking the role of DDT president away from him is crossing the line. A fight was ready to break out until Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata calmed everyone down. When everyone was leaving the ring, Ryan grabbed Takagi and used his dong strength to flip him over. Honda gave Ryan and chair and held on to Takagi for the chairshot. Suddenly, Munenori Sawa came to the rescue! Sawa chased away Ryan & Honda until it was only himself and Takagi left in the ring. After a tense moment alone, Sawa offered a handshake to Takagi but Takagi refused. As the emotions between them built up, they finally hugged and paper crackers popped around ringside to celebrate the reunion of Takagi & Sawa! The two left the ring crying shoulder to shoulder. Backstage Sawa told Takagi he will be there for him at Sumo Hall on 25th March. They will team together for a Falls Count Anywhere match against any team that wants to face them. The interviewer asked them if their reunion reminded them of the Golden ☆ Lovers reunion that happened last week. Takagi said what happened today is completely original. Sawa said he had never seen anything like this before. They called the interviewer rude for asking such a silly question.

Daisuke Sasaki’s homecoming was ruined by Danshoku Dino but he eventually got his revenge. Dino tackled Sasaki to the mat and tried to do Danshoku things to him. Sasaki tapped out to get away from him. They agreed to an immediate rematch and Sasaki spat coffee mist into Dino’s eyes. He then made Dino submit to the Cross Facelock.

Today was a good first outing for Katsumata in his first match for ALL OUT. He wore new gear and got the winning pinfall too. Katsumata gave a standard victory speech but Akito interrupted and asked him to get back on the microphone. He has to say more than the usual to win over the audience. Katsumata promised everyone that he will make it to the top of DDT. Akito pushed him to continue and be more clear with his goals. Katsumata said that he will win a DDT championship! Now Akito was satisfied with the promo.

Ken Ohka wrestled Gota Ihashi to motivate Ihashi after comments by Riki Choshu gave him an identity crisis. Ohka won the match but gave Ihashi a captivating speech afterwards. Ohka offered Ihashi the chance to team with him and Kazusada Higuchi in the main event of next Tuesday’s YaroZ show. Ihashi promised to do his best for Ohka.

Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno continued to fight each other after Match #3 ended. When they were pulled apart Umeda challenged Ueno to a singles match.

Nobuhiro Shimatani is suffering from appendicitis and had to be replaced by Daiki Shimomura in Match #3.

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Mike Bailey when Endo pinned Bailey with the Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds (15:07).
7. D-King Grand Prix – Final: Shuji Ishikawa defeated HARASHIMA with the Giant Slam (19:12).

After an intense month of round robin matches it was now time for the first ever D-King Grand Prix grand final! The two group winners HARASHIMA and Shuji Ishikawa faced off with a lot of important prizes on the line for the winner. HARASHIMA used short ranged Somatos to counter Ishikawa’s biggest moves but was too beaten down to fully capitalise on them. The tables turned when Ishikawa caught the Somato and countered it into the Fire Thunder Driver. HARASHIMA kicked out at one! Ishikawa quickly hit a Knee Lift but HARASHIMA kicked out at two. Ishikawa then did the Splash Mountain but somehow HARASHIMA kicked out again. He tried to kick his way back into the fight but Ishikawa stopped him with a Trapped Headbutt followed by the Kamigoe and another Knee Lift. HARASHIMA was still kicking out but the Giant Slam put him away once and for all. Shuji Ishikawa wins the 2018 D-King Grand Prix!

Ishikawa’s prize is 2,000,000 yen in prize money (he is considering a bitcoin investment) and the guaranteed KO-D Openweight Title main event match at Sumo Hall on 25th March. Konosuke Takeshita entered the ring and stood across from his next challenger. Ishikawa told him that when he had the belt, it shined more. He has to give it more light again. Takeshita praised Ishikawa for his contributions to pro wrestling in Japan. He is one of the best. But Takeshita will have held the belt for over a year when their match takes place. He told Ishikawa they will destroy the ring together in Sumo Hall!

When Takeshita left, Daisuke Sasaki congratulated Ishikawa for crushing their hated enemy HARASHIMA. He was then distracted by Tetsuya Endo’s new hairstyle. Endo tried to change the subject by encouraging Ishikawa to sing a victory song. Ishikawa sang “Love” by Hoshino Genki while Mad Paulie tried to dance along to the music. When the song was over Ishikawa told everyone on 25th March he wants to win the KO-D Title then sing with Mad Paulie at Sumo Hall!

DAMNATION attacked ALL OUT with chairs after beating them in the semi-main event. Shunma Katsumata ran in to rescue the group but was outnumbered. DAMNATION gave him a Super Power Bomb, leaving the entire ALL OUT unit in pieces.

Today for the last time NωA went out to perform their greatest hits. They begun with “ωe are the HERO!!” then moved on to “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU”. However their second song was interrupted by T2Hide. Sanshiro Takagi believed the performance was being treated by the audience as a toilet break. Takagi also complained the concert was going so long that there was no time for Kazuki Hirata to do his entrance. The match devolved into a musical duel between NωA and “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” against T2Hide and “Tokyo GO!” until Katsumata gave Hirata the Lightning Spiral to win the match. After the match each NωA member spoke of their future plans and goals. MAO wants to team more with Mike Bailey and cause a full rampage in DDT together. Makoto Oishi wants to achieve the DDT Grand Slam by winning every championship in the company. In the meantime he will go back to his old tag team with Danshoku Dino. Katsumata said there is another unit he would like to join. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito then appeared and stood next to Katsumata. He is joining ALL OUT!

A match featuring Dino, Joey Ryan and Jiro Kuroshio was as perverted as expected. Kuroshio had the back of his tights pulled down but he still did a bare-assed Quebrada out of the ring. Yukinori Matsui was accidentally knocked out by Dino’s Lip Lock. Ryan tried to put a lollipop into Keisuke Ishii’s mouth but he pushed it away into Dino’s backside. The lollipop was then stuffed into Kuroshio’s mouth. Dino got his hands on Kuroshio. Ryan took out the lollipop and tried to put it in Ishii’s mouth again. Ishii again pushed it away back into Dino’s backside and then into Matsui’s mouth. Matsui woke up, disqualified everyone and fainted again. When everything calmed down, Ryan called for Producer Dino’s attention. He called Dino the No. 1 crazy wrestler in DDT but Ryan is the No. 1 Crazy Gaijin. To prove it Ryan wants to face Colt Cabana at “JUDGEMENT 2018”! Dino was busy with Kuroshio and said okay. Super Sasadango Machine then asked Dino if he could defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Kuroshio on the same show. Kuroshio accepted the challenge. However Dino wants Sasadango to defend the title at least two times a week until the match takes place otherwise the title will not be on the line. The reason for this is Dino wants the Ironman Title to get more attention and no one in DDT is better at marketing than Sasadango.

That wasn’t the end for Dino on this show as he had the important decision to make in regards to his 6-Man Tag match against The Great Muta at “JUDGEMENT 2018” in March. Ken Ohka is his obvious first pick. Ishii then asked to be Dino’s pick. He argued that their record as a tag team stands at 25 wins and 10 losses. Good enough! Suddenly they were ambushed by Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo! The DAMNATION wrestlers spat liquid into Dino & Ishii’s eyes and it was sold like the Poison Mist. Sasaki told them it was only cola. He then revealed he visited The Great Muta earlier and Muta agreed to become DAMNATION’s pet! Dino’s team will now have to fight Muta, Sasaki & Endo at Sumo Hall!

KUDO continues to be in good form as he prepares for his DDT Extreme Title match on 3rd February. The champion Yuko Miyamoto hasn’t chosen a stipulation yet but KUDO wants it to be a Hardcore Match of some kind. Masahiro Takanashi said the purple belt will look good on him along with the white KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title belts they already have. Takanashi also called out for any potential challengers to step forward whether they are from DDT, BASARA or even Tokyo Joshi Pro.

Today’s PowerPoint presentation by Super Sasadango Machine was titled “How to Finalize Declaration of Final Procedure and Taxation” with supervision provided by the match sponsor Professor Takahashi. Sasadango stressed that it is better for people to file a final tax return when they want a lot of refund money. To increase their refund, it is better to increase their expenses. So Sasadango bought some new items for the wrestlers in this match to use as weapons. Sasadango bought himself a 256GB iPhone X, Saki Akai a Goyard tote bag, Antonio Honda a vintage stuffed tiger doll and Tanomusaku Toba a bunch of Tenga Egg sex toys. Sasadango took selfies with Honda and the tiger. Akai attacked Toba with the tote bag. Sasadango and Honda then opened the contents of Toba’s egg and played with them until Honda called over to Professor Takahashi. Honda accused Takahashi of tax evasion and ordered Inoue Mic to arrest him! Mic pulled out handcuffs and followed Honda’s orders. Honda then accused Sasadango of tax evasion, Toba of taking drugs and Akai of stealing his heart. Toba said he may have taken drugs but he isn’t sure. Sasadango, Akai and Toba then joined forces to beat Toba with Sasadango getting the pin. The lesson of this match? For correct knowledge of tax returns please visit the Takahashi Tax Accounting Office.

Kota Umeda is getting back into the swing of things since returning from injury. He got the pin in the opening match.

In the dark match Nobuhiro Shimatani tried to get the upper hand by attacking Naomi Yoshimura from behind but he was beaten with a Lariat. Shimatani’s bad luck doesn’t end there. He found out afterwards that on the 6th February YaroZ show he will face Kohei Sato in a Kickboxing Match! On the bright side at least Shihomi Yoshino will be the ring girl.

In other YaroZ news, the DDT staff realised during the announcement that the card was one match short from being completed. In an unexpected move, Yumehito Imanari and DT-YUTA from the DDT Video team stood up and volunteered to wrestle against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi at the show. DT-YUTA was a Union Pro wrestler many years ago.

Lady Beard, Reika Saiki, Keisuke Okuda and Yoshiko are all scheduled to appear at Sumo Hall. Also coming to DDT this March is “All Ego” Ethan Page! DDT promoted Page as the next big Canadian star to enter the company. In a video message Page said he is ready to take over DDT.

DDT “JUDGEMENT 2018 ~DDT 21ST ANNIVERSARY~”, 25/03/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. Residents Of Shinjuku Ni-chōme Vs Inhabitants Of The Demon World Special 6-Man Tag Match: Danshoku Dino, X & X Vs Great Muta, X & X

Danshoku Dino promised a big announcement for the show would be found in the latest issue of Weekly Pro-Wrestling magazine. It turned out to be the reveal of Dino Vs Great Muta in a 6-Man Tag Team Match with more participants to be announced. The team names seems to offer some clues. Dino’s team is the Residents Of Shinjuku Ni-chōme. That is the area where DDT’s head office is located so I’m guessing his partners are wrestlers with other behind the scene responsibilities like Sanshiro Takagi and Super Sasadango Machine. The Great Muta’s team are hinted as other demonic gimmicks. Whether or not these are already established characters or just regular wrestlers taking up Muta tributes for the occasion remains to be seen.

The list of non-DDT and foreign wrestlers confirmed for the show so far are Naomichi Marufuji, Daisuke Sekimoto, Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio, Shuji Ishikawa, Mike Bailey, Joey Ryan, Colt Cabana and LiLiCo.
