10 Vs 11 Team Challenge, Time Stands Still For Oishi, Hello And Goodbye Heatley

April 1, 2020

First off, the following shows in April have been cancelled.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 18/04/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAISHO~”, 18/04/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 19/04/2020
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONKOTSU~”, 19/04/2020
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

This would have been the weekend where Yuni has his Kid Graduation match, Daisuke Sasaki Vs Antonio Honda for the DDT UNIVERSAL Title takes place and Chris Brookes would experience Maku Donaruto. Both DDT and Tokyo Joshi Pro will hold empty arena events on 19th April to replace these shows so there’s a chance at least some of these matches will still take place.

———————————————————————–

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GENGHIS KHAN KIRISHIMA PRESENTS 10 VS 11 – RED AND WHITE GAME”, 03/04/2020
???

1. Team Red Vs Team White

The next Tokyo Joshi empty arena show is taking place this Friday at a private location. The Genghis Khan Kirishima restaurant is once again sponsoring a competition for the roster to take part in. This time it is a 10 Vs 11 team challenge. Shoko Nakajima (Team Red) and Rika Tatsumi (Team White) will both captain a team and pick their roster one hour before the show takes place. One of them gets an extra pick due to the odd numbers available. The team draft will be shown on Tokyo Joshi’s Youtube page. The winning team gets a gift voucher for Genghis Khan Kirishima.

The wrestlers competing are Nakajima, Tatsumi, Yuka Sakazaki, Miu Watanabe, Miyu Yamashita, Hyper Misao, Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Pom Harajuku, Mahiro Kiryu, Haruna Neko, Mirai Maiumi, Suzume, Sena Shiori, Maki Itoh, Yuna Manase, Mizuki, Yuki Kamifuku, Hikari Noa, Raku and Mina Shirakawa.

Every match on the show has a 5 minute time limit and can be won via 2 count pinfalls. Their will be no overtime so matches reaching the time limit will be declared a draw. If the score is tied going into the final match then the final will have no time limit. If a team wins enough matches to be declared the winners before the final match, then a Hunter’s Chance Match will be held between the remaining wrestlers.

DDT “DDT UNIVERSE LIVE! APRIL FOOL 2020”, 04/04/2020
Chiba 2AW Square

1. Jordan Heatley Debut & Goodbye Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Jordan Heatley
2. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 5th Match: Syuri Vs Saki Akai
3. MAO & Mike Bailey Vs Chris Brookes & Danshoku Dieno
4. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman (c) Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
5. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

Makoto Oishi is annoyed that the rules for his DDT Extreme Title match have not been decided yet. He found out Shinya Aoki made a joke during an interview that their match should be a staring contest with both participants standing still. It could last as long as 31 minutes! Oishi tested out the idea with Keigo Nakamura but couldn’t last 60 seconds.

Saki Akai hopes to cheer everyone up with her match against Syuri. She sees Syuri as a complete package with amazing strikes, amazing Sleeper Hold techniques, and she’s even amazing performing or dancing on a stage. The one thing Akai has over her opponent is height and long legs. Everything between the two was on friendly terms until Akai heard Syuri called her Osaka accent cute. Akai is from Kyoto and takes great offence to being called an Osaka girl.

Unfortunately Jordan Heatley’s DDT debut will also be his DDT goodbye. He will be returning to Australia for family reasons on 9th April and all of his planned matches were on shows that have since been cancelled. So his match with Konosuke Takeshita will be his only proper one in Japan before he heads home. This is still a dream debut for him because his favorite wrestler is El Generico and Takeshita’s debut was against Generico. Heatley hoped he would have had a match with Hideki Okatani because they became best friends while training for their debuts. Nakamura got a bit upset because he thought Heatley was talking about him.


New No People Shows In April

March 31, 2020

DDT “DDT UNIVERSE LIVE! APRIL FOOL 2020”, 04/04/2020
Chiba 2AW Square

1. Jordan Heatley Debut Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Jordan Heatley

3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman (c) Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

We’re back to empty arena shows for the time being. At least it’s happening in different venues. Chiba 2AW Square is available so Jordan Heatley’s debut match, Saki Akai Vs Syuri, the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match and the DDT Extreme Title match that were all meant to happen in the first weekend of April are now taking place there.

DDT “DDT UNIVERSE LIVE! MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Shinjuku FACE

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

The 12th April Korakuen Hall show was cancelled so the big matches booked for that show are now happening in Shinjuku FACE on the same day. So the KO-D Openweight Title and KO-D Tag Team Titles are still getting defended. Also Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi for the Saitama Super Arena Sword. There may be some other Right To Challenge Gauntlet shenanigans going on.

BASARA “BASARA 129 ~BANQUET~”, 21/04/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Gouma Ryu & Ryuji Ito
2. Union MAX Title: Fuminori Abe (c) Vs Isami Kodaka

Fuminori Abe gets the toughest test possible for his first Union MAX Title defence. Isami Kodaka pinned him in a tag match on the last show so that makes him the No. 1 Contender.


Spring Is Blooming But Everything Will Probably Get Cancelled Anyway

March 23, 2020

Who knows how much of this will stick in the next few days. I’m writing this while hearing the Olympics are likely to get postponed until next year. If that’s going down then no way does the pro wrestling schedule in Japan for the rest of the year remain unscathed.

BASARA “BASARA 125 ~BANQUET~”, 24/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tetsuo Usui Vs Akiyori Takizawa
2. Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Gouma Ryu Vs Yusuke Kubo, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT
3. FUMA & Antonio Honda Vs Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino
4. Tsutomu Oosugi, Banana Senga & Daichi Kazato Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Takato Nakano & Leo Isaka
5. IRON FIST Next Challengers Decision Battle: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Naoki Tanizaki
6. Union MAX Title: Masahiro Takanashi (c) Vs Fuminori Abe

Spring is beginning to bloom which means BASARA’s schedule is ramping up. If nothing gets cancelled then there will be 3 or 4 BASARA shows a month happening up to July.

BASARA “BASARA 126 ~OSAKA CAMP SPRING TAISHO~”, 28/03/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Takato Nakano Vs Jun Masaoka
2. 3 Way Match: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Gouma Ryu Vs Daichi Kazato
3. Losers Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match Vs Fuminori Abe & Tetsuo Usui
4. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
5. Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita
6. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Winners Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match

The No. 1 Contenders for the IRON FIST Tag Titles won’t have to wait long for the title match.

Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita looks like a de facto No. 1 Contender’s match for the Union MAX Title. Don’t know why else two Sento Minzoku wrestlers would face off against each other. Then again I’ve been struggling to follow BASARA ever since the split so I have to be missing the context for it.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 28/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Haruna Neko Vs Mirai Maiumi
2. Yuna Manase Vs Sena Shiori
3. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa Vs Mina Shirakawa & Suzume
4. Shoko Nakajima & Nodoka Tenma Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Mahiro Kiryu

6. Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger Decision 4 Way Match: Miyu Yamashita Vs Mizuki Vs Hyper Misao Vs Yuki Aino
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Maki Itoh & Raku

The Tampa show next month being cancelled means Yuka Sakazaki Vs Su Yung can no longer go ahead. That means there is currently no No. 1 Contender for the Princess Of Princess Title. To keep Sakazaki from feeling lonely on top for much longer, a 4 Way Match will be held this week to determine her next challenger. The options are the previous champ Miyu Yamashita, Sakazaki’s regular tag partner Mizuki, superhero trickster Hyper Misao and breaking out of the pack Yuki Aino.

DDT “PROTECT THE ELDERLY FROM THE NEW CORONAVIRUS! KYOU CLINIC PRO WRESTLING”, 30/03/2020
Saitama Medical Corporation Anzukai Kyou Clinic

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Gorgeous Matsuno Vs Shinya Aoki, Makoto Oishi & Gabai Ji-chan

Probably crossing the line at this point but let’s keep going and see what happens. DDT is doing a Falls Count Anywhere Match inside a medical clinic. Gorgeous Matsuno and Gabai Ji-chan will be there too for added refuge in audacity. The match will broadcast live on DDT’s Youtube channel.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAKESHI~”, 02/04/2020

7. Revengers Vs Eruption!: Masato Tanaka & Takuya Sugawara Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi

Yukio Sakaguchi has stepped up to challenge Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. It’s only been around three months since Eruption was formed and they are already making their move to take over DDT! Tanaka is bringing in Takuya Sugawara to even the numbers a little.

Konosuke Takeshita, Chris Brookes and Yuki Ueno were going to be in Tampa along with the Tokyo Joshi Pro crew but that’s not happening now. The three of them will instead wrestle each other back in Japan. Show them what America will miss lads.

The 5th Match in the Okibariyasu series is going to be kick heavy. Saki Akai faces the freelancer Syuri.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTOME~”, 04/04/2020

1. Special Single Match ~Beauty And Hentai~: Asuka Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Hataage 6th Anniversary Match ~New And Old Ganpro Vs Tomodachi-gun~: Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Minoru Fujita & Hagane Shinno

Who has the more beautiful Moonsault, Asuka or Shinichiro Tominaga? Who has the more perverted Moonsault? Does that even make sense? Either way, the answer for that one is Tominaga. I still haven’t gotten over the time he compared himself to XVideos in a promo.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

With Sakaguchi going after the KO-D Title, Kazusada Higuchi has made it his mission to win the Saitama Super Arena Sword from Tetsuya Endo. If Sakaguchi and Higuchi both get their way then “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” will have an all Eruption main event!

2. Fukuoka Specialty! DDT Sauna Club No. 1 Tag Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs MAO & Shunma Katsumata
3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Antonio Honda

It took a few tries and asking the right person but Antonio Honda is getting his DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. Maybe tranquility is the right path for him and Daisuke Sasaki… Pfft! Yeah right, what wrestler ever made it big thanks to tranquility?

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X
2. Special Tag Match ~ HarashiMarufuji Vs CimaSoma!: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji Vs CIMA & Soma Takao
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Holder Of The Saitama Super Arena Sword

So right now the SSA main event is Tanaka Vs Endo. But there are still title matches to come and Right To Challenge Gauntlets still in play that can completely change the course of the KO-D Title scene over the next two months. Also the Coronavirus cancelling everything but let’s not think about that.

5. 1st Floor Community Area – DDT Extreme Title – Blindfold Hidden Bra Death Match: Shinya Aoki defeated HARASHIMA (c) by Bra Removal (13:13).

6. Current Blast 8-Man Tag Death Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Iino & Yukio Naya defeated Atsushi Onita, Danshoku Dieno, Chris Brookes & MAO when Takeshita pinned Dieno after Dieno was accidentally hit by Onita with a Current Blast Baseball Bat (10:11).

DDT has come to Saitama Super Arena three months early for an empty arena show! The fate of the company was on the line after Danshoku Dieno set off a mutiny in the locker room against Sanshiro Takagi. A DDT Army was formed in retaliation but Takagi was disappointed to find out that only three other people joined his side. They were Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Iino. They met up with Jungle Pocket comedian Shinji Saito inside the arena to start the event. Dieno was there with Super Sasadango Machine & Keigo Nakamura. He was also armed with a current blast baseball bat. It was time to start their battle!

The two sides had their match in the 1st Basement Floor. It quickly moved over to the parking lot. Dieno thrusted a traffic cone into MAO’s backside. MAO then did the same to Dieno. Nakamura gave Iino a Low Blow to avoid the Haka Elbow but Takeshita then used an Atomic Drop to crotch Nakamura on the cone. Everyone did Lip Locks and Iino made Nakamura give up to the Argentine Backbreaker.

Takagi demanded Dieno to give up after the DDT Army defeated his rebellion. Suddenly a white van appeared and ran over Takagi! MAO was the driver and revealed he was a member of the Dieno Army all along! Takagi was thrown into the van and it drove off. The van briefly stopped so Iino would run into it. Takeshita & Saito followed the direction of the van in the hopes of finding Takagi.

Takeshita arrived in a locker room where he found Naomi Yoshimura, Makoto Oishi & Saori Anou hanging around. They revealed they were on Dieno’s side. Eruption then entered the room and offered to help Takeshita, kicking off a 6-Man Tag. The Dieno Army tried to strangle the Eruption wrestlers with phone cords. Kazusada Higuchi lifted a massage table onto himself and used it as full body armour. Saki Akai threw Anou onto another massage table and started attacking her with massages. Yukio Sakaguchi ran across the tables to give Yoshimura a PK while Higuchi submitted Oishi with the Canadian Backbreaker. Eruption then stuffed Oishi into a trash can after he told them where to find Takagi.

Takeshita & Saito next went down the corridor. They did not find Takagi there. Instead DAMNATION were standing around drinking. Daisuke Sasaki told them they were hired by Dieno. Takeshita called over Akito, Mizuki Watase & Royce Chambers to battle DAMNATION straight away. Akito pulled off Tetsuya Endo’s tights and was chased out of the room by him. Endo caught Akito and put him in the Yurikamome Hold to get them back. Soma Takao dragged Watase into a woman’s restroom and dunked his head into a toilet with the Gin And Tonic. Chambers gave Endo a Canadian Destroyer on top of a stack of wooden pallets then Moonsaulted onto everybody below. Watase came out of the restroom with a toilet brush to attack DAMNATION with. Sasaki took it off him and shoved it into Watase’s mouth. The three DAMNATION wrestlers then Power Bombed Watase onto a nearby ladder for the three count. Takeshita asked DAMNATION how much Dieno was paying them. Sasaki said 6,500 yen each including transportation expenses. Takeshita convinced Saito to pay each of them 10,000 yen to find out where Takagi was taken too. DAMNATION pointed them up to the rooftop.

Takeshita, Akito & Chambers ran up the stairs and there on the rooftop was the Dieno Army with Takagi tied to a chair under hostage. Dieno told them they were trapped with his entire army which included Munenori Sawa, Pokotan and the Saitama Super Arena mascot Tamarlin.

The DDT Army held against the ambush. Akito kept everyone at bay with Dragon Screws while Chambers dove onto whoever was in his way. They linked all of the Dieno Army wrestlers together in a Headscissors Chain and Takeshita flipped them all over with the Walls Of Takeshita to make all of them submit.

Takeshita thought the coup was defeated until he found out Takagi was switched with Yoshihiko on the chair during the battle! Saito began to laugh and suddenly attacked Akito & Chambers. He was a Dieno Army spy all along and Takagi is going to be publicly executed by explosion! Takeshita rallied together Iino, Yukio Naya and Shunma Katsumata dressed in his hardcore Joker costume to go rescue Takagi.

But first there was the important matter of the DDT Extreme Title match to get through. Away from the chaos on the rooftop, HARASHIMA and Shinya Aoki were about to have their match in the Community Arena. They took off their shirts to reveal they were both wearing bras underneath. They then placed blindfolds over their eyes. That’s right, the belt was being defended in a Blindfold Hidden Bra Death Match! First wrestler to take off their opponent’s bra while blindfolded wins! With such a large empty room to fight in there was danger of the wrestlers getting lost. But the two wrestlers were able to stay close to each other. HARASHIMA tripped over a board when he went to do the Somato. Aoki’s attempt at a European Clutch was blocked but he was able to put the champion in a Manjigatame and strip off HARASHIMA’s bra to win. Aoki takes back the Extreme Title from HARASHIMA! He celebrated with both of the bras and guessed he will be back in Saitama Super Arena to defend the title in June.

Anyway back to the mutiny. The Dieno Army was about to execute Takagi down at the entrance when Takeshita and the DDT Army arrived to save him. Dieno told them he had one last trump card for them. “Wild Thing” played and out came Atsushi Onita with MAO & Chris Brookes! Dieno joined them for the main event 8-Man Tag. Onita spat red Mist into Naya’s face then gave Katsumata a Piledriver through a table. They recovered and held onto Onita so Takeshita could swing the Current Blast Baseball Bat at him, causing a big explosion. During the chaos, Takagi freed himself from the chair and grabbed the Blast Bat. He tried to hit MAO with it but MAO blocked the swing with a chair, causing the explosion to knock both of them away. Dieno gave Takeshita the Lip Lock then went to get the bat. Katsumata dove towards him but Dieno struck him with the explosive bat in mid-air. Dieno then climbed onto a podium and pulled the back of his tights down. He instructed his army to shove the enemies’ faces into his backside. Everyone resisted so Onita grabbed the Blast Bat. He swung it but Takeshita ducked and the bat struck Dieno’s ass, exploding it in a major way! Takeshita crawled on top of Dieno to pin him, ending the coup once and for all. Or is it?

After the match Saito suggested they do a Current Blast Death Match at the Tokyo headquarters for Yoshimoto Kogyo. Onita liked the idea but attacked Saito to make sure he won’t break his promise. When he left, Takeshita told Dieno the coup was over. But Dieno had a surprise. He isn’t the mastermind. The mastermind is standing over on top of the entrance. Over there was a masked person wearing Dieno’s entrance robe. The person took off the mask to reveal it was Akane Takiyama, one of the AbemaTV announcers who was reporting on the event the whole time! A new Saitama Super Arena legend begins!

Tokyo Ochanomizu Dojo

4. NEO Itoh Respect Army Vs Momoiro Gongitsune!: Chris Brookes & Maki Itoh defeated Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashitawhen Brookes submitted Honda with the Octopus Stretch (10:41).
5. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Iino & Royce Chambers defeated HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Takeshita pinned Hirata with a Brainbuster (0:29).
5a. Rematch: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Iino & Royce Chambers defeated HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Chambers pinned Hirata with the Rolls Royce (12:02).

The DDT debut of Royce Chambers lasted only 29 seconds. He climbed the top rope getting ready to fly when Konosuke Takeshita Suplexed Kazuki Hirata and pinned him for the 3 count. Everyone else left the ring getting ready to hit the showers until Hisaya Imabayashi angrily told them to restart the match.

The match restarted and the same thing was about to happen except this time everyone broke up the pin. Hirata took out the Hirata GO! glasses and danced for the camera outside the ring. Chambers wiped out DISASTER BOX with a Tornillo then hit his Rolls Royce finisher on Hirata to end the main event properly. Chambers said he has arrived in DDT to prove he is the best wrestler from Australia and the No. 1 high flyer in the world. Takeshita told everyone to look forward to what ALL OUT and AUSSIE ALL OUT will do next.

We thought we were in for all singing, all dancing NEO Itoh Respect Army entrance but Chris Brookes was more interested in starting a fight with Antonio HondaMaki Itoh told Brookes to dance then began to cry when he wouldn’t. It was all a trap for Itoh to Headbutt Honda while his guard was down. After Brookes made Honda submit to the Octopus Hold, he said he is hungry for blood. He wants to tear into Honda’s stomach and eat whatever is inside. Itoh tried to fit in by saying she wants to collect Miyu Yamashita’s chin as a trophy.

Ganbare☆Wrestling had its first taste of empty dojo wrestling by sending three of their wrestlers to face Eruption. The visitors came close to winning when Yumehito Imanari hit Yukio Sakaguchi with the Chubby Knee Kick. Sakaguchi kicked out and used a Ninja Choke to submit Imanari. After the match Sakaguchi welcomed Ganpro to fight them again and mentioned without saying any names that there is a wrestler in particular he wants to fight. Maybe the Ninja Choke is a call out for Shuichiro Katsumura?

Keigo Nakamura asked Makoto Oishi to team up against Yukio Naya in the 3 Way Match. The alliance broke apart when their combined force wasn’t enough to overpower Naya. Nakamura knocked Naya out of the ring with a High Kick so the match focused on the rookie against Oishi. Naya kicked out of the Miracle Ecstasy so Oishi used the Luminous Press to put him away.

The trainee Hideki Okatani had his debut match postponed so for now he can only do Exhibition matches. Akito put him through his paces before giving him a Backbreaker then submitted him with a Crab Hold.

The DDT Extreme Title match between HARASHIMA and Shinya Aoki that was meant to happen on 3rd March will now take place on the 11th. That date means the match will be part of the Street Wrestling show being held at Saitama Super Arena!

DDT “SHIMOKITAZAWA FIGHTING THEATER 2020”, 03/03/2020
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Worldwide Match: Chris Brookes Vs Royce Chambers
2. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Shinya Aoki wanted to use his Right To Challenge Gauntlet to get a DDT Extreme Title match. He was told the Gauntlet is not meant for that championship but he still qualified for a title shot anyway. Also HARASHIMA likes to fight him.

A lot of eyes will be on Chris Brookes and Royce Chambers. Brookes for going through his year long stay in Japan and Chambers for suddenly becoming a potential hot prospect on the indie scene.

Maku Donaruto will be on the show.
