There once was a time when Cherry’s age was one of the greatest secrets in pro wrestling. But nowadays she is comfortable with people knowing how old she is. Plus at 45 years of age she qualifies for the O-40 Title. She expressed interest in challenging for the belt when she found out about its existence.

The Battle Royal will go ahead with or without the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title.

DDT “WRESTLE SHIOKONBU! 2020”, 12/01/2020

Is this Rika Tatsumi’s last chance to bring Hyper Misao back? She has an idea to do something for her one on one match with Misao. What on earth could it be?

Marika Kobashi will be in attendance to give an update on her status. She has been absent from Tokyo Joshi Pro since the summer to study for her university entrance exam.

BASARA “BASARA 113 ~NISHIARAI DAISHI RING~”, 15/12/2019
Tokyo Nishiarai Daishi West Studio

0. Exhibition Match: Ryuichi Sekine Vs Tetsuo Usui
1. Customer Lottery Tag Match: Ryota Nakatsu, Fuminori Abe, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, SAGAT
2. Customer Lottery Decision Only Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Masato Kamino
3. 61 Minute Best 2 Out Of Three Falls: Daiki Shimomura Vs Takato Nakano

The BASARA generation rivalry between Daiki Shimomura and Takato Nakano has come to this. They will face off in a three fall match with a combined 61 minute time limit. It is a stipulation so big that it will main event the show.

The other two matches will heavily feature crowd participation. The audience will randomly choose who teams with who in Match #1. For Match #2 Isami Kodaka and Masato Kamino will only be allowed to use moves pulled out of a box by members of the audience.

Tetsuo Usui is a new trainee for BASARA. Can’t find any details about him yet.

DDT “D-OU GRAND PRIX 2020 THE FINAL!!”, 28/12/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kazusada Higuchi Return Match: Kazusada Higuchi Vs X
2. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 2nd Match: Sakura Hirota Vs Saki Akai
3. Toshiwasure! Special Single Match: Shinya Aoki Vs Super Sasadango Machine
4. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – Final: Winner Of A Block vs Winner Of B Block

One of the upsets of the year happened when Super Sasadango Machine pinned Shinya Aoki last weekend. Even Sasadango has been struggling to believe it was a deserved victory. He does comedy so much that he can’t tell if he has some legitimate wrestling ability anymore. To find out if Sasadango actually has skill in the ring he will face Aoki in a singles match. If he hits the Lehmann Shock three times in a row again then nobody can question the result.

DDT “NEW YEAR SPECIAL GIFT! ALL SEATS 2,000 YEN BOX OFFICE!! 2020”, 03/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. New Year! Special 3 Way Match: Sanshiro Takagi Vs Danshoku Dieno Vs Super Sasadango Machine

DDT kicks off the 2020 schedule with three of their classic wrestlers facing off against each other.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’20”, 04/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Maki Itoh (c) Vs Hikari Noa
2. Princess Of Princess Title: Yuka Sakazaki (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

Hikari Noa convinced Maki Itoh to give her an International Princess Title shot. She wants to win the title and defend it against Natsumi Maki when she returns from injury. Maybe it’s out of jealousy or maybe it is out of respect but Itoh accepted the challenge and wants it at the big 4th January show at Korakuen Hall.

DDT “WRESTLE SHIOKONBU! 2020”, 12/01/2020
Osaka City Suminoe Maikon Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs X

There will be no more title matches in DDT until January. I bet the D-Ou Grand Prix group stage will determine some challengers for HARASHIMA.

DDT “WRESTLE TOROROKOBU! 2020”, 13/01/2020
Osaka City Suminoe Maikon Hall

1. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs X, X & X

ALL OUT’s position in DDT has been weakened now that Konosuke Takeshita is no longer the KO-D Openweight Champion. An attempt from Yuki Iino to win the belt failed and Shunma Katsumata hasn’t been able to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles whenever he had the chance to. All they have to fight for at the moment is the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

DDT “SWEET DREAMS! 2020”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs X

It’s possible that the D-Ou winner could challenge HARASHIMA here but that is not a guarantee.


DDT “GOD BLESS DDT 2019” Results

November 24, 2019

DDT “SOUKEN HOLDINGS PRESENTS GOD BLESS DDT 2019”, 24/11/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
1,214 Fans – Super No Vacancy

3. Danshoku Dieno & Super Sasadango Machine defeated Shinya Aoki & Keigo Nakamura when Sasadango pinned Aoki with the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock (10:45).
4. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 1st Match: Tsukasa Fujimoto defeated Saki Akai with the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex (9:32).
5. After Ultimate Party 2019 Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Jiro Kuroshio defeated Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita when Kuroshio pinned Honda with the Moonsault Press (14:07).
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) defeated Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes when Takao pinned Brrokes with the Official Endless Waltz (13:43).
*V9 for DAMNATION.
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Yuki Iino with the Somato (16:51).
*V1 for HARASHIMA.

HARASHIMA’s first defence for his latest KO-D Openweight Title got off to a good start with a victory over Yuki Iino. The challenger used the Bubba Bomb and the Haka Elbow but couldn’t put HARASHIMA away. He went for the Spear but HARASHIMA blocked it with a Standing Somato. When both got back up they got into a Elbow Smash battle that ended with Iino throwing a Headbutt. However HARASHIMA hit back with a Spin Kick to the face that knocked Iino down. HARASHIMA used a Buzzsaw Kick to set up the match ending Somato. The champion called Iino a great opponent he wants to face again and again. He called Iino a TV star but HARASHIMA also appeared on a TV drama recently so he thinks that cancelled out Iino’s advantage. HARASHIMA won’t have any more title defences for the rest of the year. His next DDT Extreme Title defence will be on 12th January and his next KO-D Title defence is on 26th January. For now HARASHIMA will concentrate on winning the D-Ou Grand Prix.

Today was the most under threat DAMNATION have been towards losing the KO-D Tag Team Titles. As the match progressed problems grew between Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao. Thanks to the craftiness of Masahiro Takanashi, he would make Sasaki bump into Takao over and over until Takao had enough and he turned on Sasaki! After smashing Sasaki with an Elbow Strike, Takao left the ring in anger. Sasaki had to fight his opponents mostly on his own but Tetsuya Endo did what he could from ringside to prevent Sasaki from losing. Endo gave a chair to Sasaki which caused Takao to come back and grab it off him. However Takao then hit Takanashi with the chair and all was good again with DAMNATION! The match became 2 Vs 2 again. Sasaki pulled Takanashi out of the ring while Takao blocked the Praying Mantic Bomb from Chris Brookes. From there Takao used the Official Endless Waltz to cradle Brookes into pins until he finally got a three count. Backstage Takao says he has not forgiven Sasaki yet but Sasaki doesn’t care. Today proved that they can win matches even if their friendship is broken. They are one more title defence away from taking their team to the next level. But first they have to worry about the D-Ou GP where they just happen to be in the same block. Brookes told Takanashi not to worry about the loss because CDK are only a new team. They will get another shot at the titles some day.

The team of Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita took on a new challenge when they faced Konosuke Takeshita & Jiro Kuroshio. Honda complained that Kuroshio was wearing a nice jacket while he wrestled. Yamashita faked an injury along with Honda after a leapfrog spot but took the match seriously when she faced off with Takeshita. She gave Takeshita a German Suplex but he immediately fired back with a Lariat. Honda stripped Kuroshio of his jacket but struggled to put it on himself. When he wound up his hands for the Bionic Elbow they got entangled by the jacket. That gave Kuroshio the chance to knock him down and pin him with the Moonsault Press. Takeshita told Kuroshio he wants to wrestle him again no matter if it is in DDT, America or even the health center were they hung out at. Kuroshio joked that it will probably be at the health center. They hugged and vowed to reunite in the future.

Saki Akai’s first match in her “Okibariyasu” Series ended in a loss to Tsukasa Fujimoto. But she can be happy to know she put up a good fight. Akai couldn’t hit the Quetzalcoatl and it took Fujimoto two attempts to hit the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex. Fujimoto intentionally used the move because Akai said in an interview that she wanted to wrestle Manami Toyota. When you wrestle Fujimoto, you also wrestle Toyota in spirit. Akai will take what she has learned and use them along with her emotions for the next match. Opponent #2 in her series will be Sakura Hirota and that match will be on 28th December.

The rookie Keigo Nakamura took the microphone before his match and told everyone his dream is to win a championship. He figured out the fastest way to do this is to go for the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Shinya Aoki because of Aoki’s KO power. He asked Aoki if he wanted to do that but Aoki’s answer was “Who are you?” Their match began and Danshoku Dieno got his hands on Nakamura while Aoki fought with Super Sasadango Machine. Sasadango escaped from Aoki’s Sleeper Hold by slipping out of his mask. Dieno then gave Aoki the Lip Lock and the Danshoku Driver to set up something even more expected. Sasadango hit the three Lehmann Shocks and pinned Aoki! Sadadango reappeared later in the show and asked for a singles match with Aoki on 28/12 to figure out if this was a fluke or if he reall does have potential to be a serious pro wrestler.

The dream has come true for Michiaki Nakano. He has finally won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title! If only for a minute. He didn’t win the Battle Royal despite bribing the other wrestlers thousands and thousands of yen to help him beat up Kazuki Hirata. However Hirata beat the odds and eliminated every one of his opponents to win the match. Things looked to be peaceful after the match until Nakano gave Hirata the Rainmaker and went for the pin. Hirata kicked out at one. Makoto Oishi then hit Hirata with the title belt and Nakano jumped onto Hirata before Oishi could for the title change. Nakano celebrated until Oishi rolled him up for the three count and ran off with the belt.

Now that Nobuhiro Shimatani has gone freelance, somebody has to carry around the DAMNATION signboard. Endo ended up doing it today. Somehow the sign is now upside down. It’s not all bad. He and Mad Paulie won the 4 Way Tag.

Kazusada Higuchi will return to the ring on 28th December. He has been out of action since September.

Hirata’s 10th Anniversary show will take place on 14th March, 2020.


DDT “DRAMATIC NIIGATA! 2019 ~SUPER SASADANGO MACHINE LOCAL TRIUMPH~” Results

November 16, 2019

DDT “DRAMATIC NIIGATA! 2019 ~SUPER SASADANGO MACHINE LOCAL TRIUMPH~”, 16/11/2019
Niigata Kobari Aoyama Public Hall
208 Fans

1. Mad Paulie defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Running Body Press (4:56).
2. Antonio Honda & Yuki Iino defeated Kazuki Hirata & Yuki Ueno when Iino pinned Hirata with the Haka Elbow (11:46).
3. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Owashi pinned Katsumata with La Magistral Cradle (8:16).
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Masahiro Takanashi, Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase when Takao pinned Watase with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb (14:02).
5. DDT Extreme Title – 10 Vs 1 Captain’s Fall Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs DJ Nira ended but nobody knows who won this match (17:00).
*V2 for HARASHIMA for some reason.
6. “Local Celebrity” Super Sasadango Machine Local Triumph! Niigata Specialty Ultra Super Mechanko Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Super Sasadango Machine with the Verdict (21:17).

Today was Super Sasadango Machine’s toughest challenge in a while. He needed to figure out a way to beat Konosuke Takeshita. His PowerPoint presentation showed Sasadango is aware of his lack of stamina as a weakness. His plan was to get the audience to cheer his name at the five minute mark, do a big move to Takeshita on the ring apron and attack him with a weapon outside the ring. If all else fails he can rely on doing the Lehmann Shock three times for a victory as guaranteed as Hiroshi Tanahashi hitting the Sling Blade and the High Fly Flow.

The plan didn’t go quite as intended. The big apron bump was blocked, the bell hammer was taken as a weapon but it was Takeshita who used it on Sasadango. The Lehmann Shock was hit twice and Sasadango unmasked himself as time slowed down. But the third one was slowly countered into a Sling Blade. Takeshita climbed the ropes to do a High Fly Flow but Sasadango’s thoughts about a dead grandpa (I’ll explain that later) motivated him to stop Takeshita and hit the third Lehmann Shock! Shockingly, Takeshita kicked out at two and fought back. He used Muscle Sakai’s old finisher the Verdict to beat Sasadango.

After the match Takeshita told Sakai/Sasadango that he is a million years away from beating him. But he respects him especially since DDT does not have a new generation wrestler to replace the likes of him and Danshoku Dieno. Sasadango said today was the first time he took the Verdict. He never thought anyone other than Brock Lesnar would give it to him. He discovered that the move hurts his nose.

The rules for the 10 Vs 1 Captain’s Fall match were made a little bit clearer before it began. HARASHIMA was on the champion team, which meant he was on his own. DJ Nira was part of the 10 man team with other members of the roster. However the captain of that team was purposely kept secret so the audience could have fun solving the mystery with HARASHIMA. Nira had Masahiro Takanashi, Antonio Honda, Makoto Oishi, Keigo Nakamura and even the referee Yukinori Matsui helping him. However the ring announcer Inoue Mic noticed that Nira’s team did not have 10 people in it. He then admitted that he was the team captain! The team all beat up HARASHIMA until Nira told them to stop. This was supposed to be him challenging for the DDT Extreme Title so he wanted the match to just be between himself and HARASHIMA. The ring emptied. Nira went for the Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA went for the Somato. When they hit the room went dark. An old Hisaya Imabayashi appeared sitting on a chair telling the story of this legendary battle. A voice asked “Hey Grandpa, what happened after that?” Imabayashi did not respond. A narrator told the audience “Grandpa was dead. Nobody knows who won this match.”

DAMNATION won the 6-Man Tag but things were looking shaky within the group. At one point Daisuke Sasaki accidentally Clotheslined Soma Takao. They patched things up but later on Sasaki accidentally hit Soma again with a Spear. They still won but Takao left the ring and took no part in the post-match group pose.

DDT “GOD BLESS DDT 2019”, 24/11/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Yuki Iino

Yuki Iino won last weekend’s Gauntlet match to get the KO-D Openweight Title shot.

Jiro Kuroshio’s dad requested that Jiro and Konosuke Takeshita team together for Jiro’s final match in DDT. Takeshita agreed to it as long as Antonio Honda could be one of their opponents. Honda accepted the offer because he already has a tag team with Miyu Yamashita.

Honda was supposed to be in Match #3 but he pulled out to do the Kuroshio match. Danshoku Dieno takes his place as Super Sasadango Machine’s tag partner.

There is a problem with the Battle Royal. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was supposed to be defended in it for the sake of Souken’s Michiaki Nakano. However Dieno is now the champion and he is booked on the match afterwards. So what does Nakano have to fight for?

6e. Yuki Iino defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Spear (10:37).

The show began with each participant in the main event gauntlet picking out balls to determine their order of entry. Mizuki Watase drew #1 but said if he can beat everyone then he can beat HARASHIMA. Well, he fell at the first hurdle to Asuka. Yuki Ueno was the next entrant and he eliminated Asuka with a Headscissors style Hurricanrana. He then used the Frankensteiner again to beat Shunma Katsumata. His run came to an end when Yuki Iino entered the fray. Iino avoided getting rolled up and won with the Spear. That left Naomi Yoshimura as the last entrant. Iino blocked the Shonenba, gave Yoshimura the Bubba Bomb then had to hit two Spears to win the match.

HARASHIMA came out and congratulated Iino for winning. They will now face each other for the KO-D Openweight Title on 24th November at Korakuen Hall. HARASHIMA told him he won’t lose the title easily because he worked so hard to win it in Sumo Hall. Iino thanked everyone for supporting him. He’s been wrestling for three years now but missed periods because of injury and acting work. He is taking a chance on himself so he will hit HARASHIMA with 120% of his power!

Keisuke Ishii said he was honored to defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title against Makoto Oishi. His goal as the champion is to beat his previous reign of 6 successful defences. Oishi lost but his message to everyone today is old warriors don’t die, they just leave. But he hasn’t given up yet. The eruption of Volcano Oishi has yet to happen!

Late in Match #4, the legal wrestlers HARASHIMA and Masahiro Takanashi fought around ringside. DJ Nira snuck down to the ring and struck them with his umbrella, resulting in the double countout. Nira got on the microphone and asked how did he get a shot at the DDT Extreme Title? Was it because he tried to steal it? He was about to leave when Hisaya Imabayashi asked about the stipulation for the title match on 16th November. Nira pointed to the screen and a message came up saying it’s going to be a 10 Vs 1 Captain’s Fall Handicap Match! Imabayashi wanted more information like who will be fighting on his own and who is on the team of 10 wrestlers? Nira just told him to use his imagination then left. HARASHIMA assured Imabayashi that he is fine with the rule.

Nobuhiro Shimatani’s final match under DDT contract could not have gone any worse. He tapped out to Daisuke Sasaki in under 30 seconds. They agreed to a rematch and this time around Shimatani convinced Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie to help him try and beat Sasaki! However Shimatani’s sign attacks kept missing Sasaki and hitting the others so often that they turned back on him. Shimatani tried fighting against the 4 on 1 odds but tapped out to Sasaki again. Sasaki said he doesn’t know why Shimatani is quitting DDT and he doesn’t care. But he’ll leave it up to Shimatani if he wants to quit DAMNATION too. Shimatani told the audience that from tomorrow they will see him begin to grow up in the ring. One more thing. He will stay in DAMNATION!

A video message was sent to Konosuke Takeshita after the 3 Way Match. It was from Jiro Kuroshio’s dad! He wants Takeshita to team with “Ikemen” for his final DDT match on 24/11. Takeshita accepted the request and asked for Antonio Honda to included. Honda already has a match booked on the 24th but he will do it to honour Kuroshio. He already has a tag partner too. It’s Miyu Yamashita!

It’s not often that Kazuki Hirata gets to bully around an underdog. With Keigo Nakamura in the ring, Hirata had the opportunity to remind everyone his extended moveset is heavily Dragon Gate influenced. He hit the Doi 555, the Bakatare Sliding Kick and then applied the Sol Naciente on the rookie to get his team the win. Hiroshi Yamato attacked Hirata after the match so he could win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. He went for the pin but Danshoku Dieno stunned him with the Lip Lock then pinned Hirata to take the title.
