8. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino defeated CIMA, T-Hawk & Duan Yingnan (c) when Takeshita pinned CIMA with the Fable (19:18).
*#STRONGHEARTS fails in V1. ALL OUT becomes the 37th KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

ALL OUT kicks off 2019 by winning the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from #STRONGHEARTS! The invading force led by CIMA has been a thorn in ALL OUT’s side for over three months. Today ALL OUT got their absolute victory over them. CIMA, T-Hawk & Duan Yingnan were a handful at first and Akito took the brunt of the champion team’s offence. That was until Yuki Iino used his power to clear the ring, leading to CIMA facing off with Konosuke Takeshita once more. CIMA hit the Thrust Kick only for Takeshita to shake it off and Lariat him. Takeshita avoided the Schwein and stuck CIMA with his knee. Then the finish happened. Takeshita used the very move he was inspired to create after losing to CIMA at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018”. Takeshita hit the Fable and pinned CIMA to win the titles for ALL OUT!

After the match Takeshita said that after he wins the KO-D Openweight Title he can take the challenge to defend it against CIMA, T-Hawk and Yingnan. CIMA mentioned that he’s been wrestling for the same number of years that Takeshita’s been alive. He accepts defeat for the entire unit today, not just in the main event but also from the opening match. #STRONGHEARTS are going to go have a meeting to figure out where to shake things up next in 2019. CIMA said his goodbyes and it seems that for now #STRONGHEARTS’s time with DDT has come to an end.

The show ended with the confirmed matches for “JUDGEMENT 2019” at Sumo Hall on 17th February. Daisuke Sasaki Vs Konosuke Takeshita for the KO-D Title is the main event. Also Sanshiro Takagi, Chigusa Nagayo & Ryuji Ito will face Soma Takao, Mad Paulie & Takumi Iroha in a Hardcore Match! Sasaki and Takeshita faced off in the ring to close out the show.

A round system was added to the DDT Extreme Title match by Tanomusaku Toba’s request. The match could have lasted for 15 rounds of three minutes each but Shinya Aoki only needed three to knock Toba out. Apparently Hayato “Mach” Sakurai knew all of Aoki’s weak points but Toba was unable to hear his instructions during the match. HARASHIMA approached Aoki after the match to ask for a title rematch. Aoki agreed and it was decided it will take place at “JUDGEMENT 2019”. Aoki said he and HARASHIMA will show a strong side of DDT that only those two can do.

Puma King and Toru Owashi both asked for the 10-Man Tag Match between DAMNATION and DISASTER BOX to be held under Lucha Libre rules. All hell broke loose in the ring until HARASHIMA pinned King with the Somato. Sasaki wore a Shuji Ishikawa shirt for the match and placed it in the middle of the ring when it was over. He invited Ishikawa down to the ring to give everyone the sad news. Since Ishikawa has now signed a contract with All Japan, Sasaki thinks that means he will also be leaving DAMNATION. Tetsuya Endo was asked to give his favourite memories with Ishikawa but he didn’t have any. Ishikawa walked away from the ring so upset that Mad Paulie followed to console him. Sasaki switched the subject to Puma King having his last match in DDT today. It is now time for DAMNATION to rebuild. Suddenly “Matsuken Samba” played and Paulie came out dancing. Ishikawa came back out wearing a DAMNATION shirt singing about how “Shu-chan” won’t quit DAMNATION! Sasaki hit him over the head with a microphone to make him stop. If Ishikawa isn’t quitting then that means “DAMNATION, Forever!”

The new year tradition of otoshidama (an envelope filled with gift money) hung above Korakuen Hall for the 3 Way Tag Ladder match. MAO gave Jun Kasai some bananas to get on his good side but Kasai rejected them because he is tired of eating them. Kasai put Kazusada Higuchi through a table with a Flying Body Press (doesn’t count as the Pearl Harbour Splash because he wasn’t wearing his goggles). MAO used the bananas to lure Super Sasadango Machine & Antonio Honda into a ladder trap at the corner, incapacitating them. Mizuki Watase was knocked off the ladder onto a plastic box that Kasai placed below him. That allowed MAO to grab the otoshidama and win the match. MAO opened it up to see how much was inside and found only a single 500 yen coin. However, Hisaya Imabayashi then told MAO he could also make one wish. MAO asked for a Round One entertainment centre to be built in Aoyama. He was only joking. Instead MAO wishes to create his own kind of hardcore wrestling in DDT. MAO asked Kasai to help him. Kasai will but only on a bigger stage because DDT is too cheap to give them proper prize money. Kasai then kicked MAO and ran off with the 500 yen.

Kota Umeda continues to be winless in his trial series. Match 6 of 7 was against Daichi Hashimoto in a match dominated by kicks. Hashimoto did the deal with a Falcon Arrow for a nearfall. The Shining Wizard afterwards ended the match. Hashimoto said he had a lot of fun doing the the kicking duel with Umeda. With one match left in Umeda’s trial he found out who his opponent will be on 27th January. It’s Shuji Ishikawa! Umeda approached him for a handshake but instead slapped Ishikawa across the face. Ishikawa returned a slap of his own and left the ring.

DDT’s search for the next breakout comedy wrestler took place with Sanshiro Takagi and Makoto Oishi holding a Battle Royal. Hen China was the first entrant but he spent most of his time attaching glow sticks to the ring ropes death match style. Tiger Mask V (Self-Proclaimed) outwrestled Oishi with his dazzlingly flabby Tiger Mask style. Gorgeous Matsuno’s singing entrance was cut off by Kuishinbo Kamen reading his children’s picture book to the audience. The final entrant Atsushi Maruyama was annoyed that DDT booked him in this match instead of something major. Matsuno used Rocket Punches to eliminate the field until it was down to him and Kamen. The rest of the wrestlers stuck around to do comedy spots. They kept encouraging Matsuno to do the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow to Kamen over and over to make it look cool. It made Matsuno so tired that he had to crawl really slowly to cover Kamen. He still got the three count and everyone piled on top of him to celebrate his win.

Shuten-dōji were victorious over their ragtag collection of opponents in the 8-Man Tag Match. Yukio Sakaguchi pinned Hoshitango with the God’s Right Knee.

The other #STRONGHEARTS defeat today came at the hands of Nobuhiro Shimatani of all people! He pinned El Lindaman with the Reverse Strike crucifix slam. Lindaman played a good sport after the match until he gave Shimatani a Low Blow and left the ring. That won’t upset Shimatani though. He’s starting off the year with a win. Everything’s coming up Nobu!

The show began with news that DDT has formed a partnership with the English promotion Fight Club: PRO. FCP co-owner Martin Zaki joined Takagi, MAO and Mike Bailey in the ring for the announcement. Takagi wants DDT to appeal across the world in 2019 so he’s joining in with the Japanese scene’s growing ventures to the UK. Both companies will be sending wrestlers back and forth to each other throughout the year. Zaki says this is a big opportunity to bring talent rich in personality, both male and female, over to the UK. It also gives British wrestlers the opportunity to learn both the spiritual and physical elements of pro wrestling in Japan. Maybe even a new style combining British and Japanese wrestling philosophies can be discovered through this.

Yukio Naya from Real Japan will compete at “JUDGEMENT 2019”. He is the grandson of the legendary sumo wrestler Taiho Koki. Naya has only been wrestling for over a year and says he will be honored to wrestle in Sumo Hall.

Danshoku Dieno’s newest creation OsuMAN Dankon is debuting at “JUDGEMENT 2019”. I don’t know what it is. I don’t think I want to know what it is.

In Tokyo Joshi Pro news Natsumi Maki appeared on this show to confirm her debut with TJPW on tomorrow’s Korakuen show.

Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shuichiro Katsumura
2. Special Single Match: Yumehito Imanari Vs Minoru Fujita

With Ken Ohka defeated, Yumehito Imanari is now left leading the wounded Ganbare☆Wrestling against Minoru Fujita and Sento Minzoku. Imanari calls Fujita an “A Class War Criminal” who he must defeat. Fujita meanwhile is disappointed in Ganpro’s stunted growth and is struggling to find a reason to stick around. Maybe Imanari can give him a reason.

Shuichiro Katsumura previously fought and lost to Keisuke Ishii for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title back in June. After winning Ganpro’s MVP award yesterday, Katsumura now wants another chance.

Shortly before today came, news went around that this show was going to be the final episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”. Rumour was the AbemaTV producers were not happy with Danshoku Dieno’s naked wrestling stunt in last week’s “RYOGOKU PETER PAN” main event which aired live on the service. Instead the story turned out to be rather different. A video was shown after the main event announcing a new monthly DDT series called “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI SUPER” beginning with the 3rd January Korakuen Hall show. AbemaTV assures everyone that DDT is not in trouble for what happened at Sumo Hall. Also Maji Manji Super is not going to be the monthly Korakuen shows. DDT is running Korakuen twice in January so they are able to dedicate the first of those shows to the new series. They will also sell every ticket for just 2,000 yen, which is the return of a marketing gimmick DDT used to do for their first show of the year.

The main event went the full twenty minutes as Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa fought to a draw against Naomichi Marufuji & Konosuke Takeshita. The end of Maji Manji meant one last table spot on the show which was done when Ishikawa gave Takeshita the Fire Thunder through a table at ringside. Marufuji took Ishikawa out with the Shiranui while Takeshita and Sasaki fought during the dying minutes of the match. Sasaki kicked out of a Lariat while Takeshita kicked out of the Hurricanrana. The two were trading Elbow Smashes when the bell rang and the match ended. Ishikawa wanted to end the show and the series with karaoke but Sasaki stopped him. They left to go sing karaoke on their own while Marufuji thanked Takeshita for the match. The fans then cheered Takeshita to sing karaoke. It was here when everyone got the news of Maji Manji Super to end the show.

The DDT Extreme Title match stayed mostly on the ground as the champion HARASHIMA wanted to out-grapple Shinya Aoki. A Piledriver had no effect on the challenger and Aoki avoided the Somato to lock in a Sleeper Hold. HARASHIMA shifted his position to apply a Cross Armbreaker but Aoki then trapped him in a Triangle Choke. HARASHIMA Power Bombed Aoki but the hold wouldn’t break. HARASHIMA lost consciousness and Aoki became the new Extreme Champion! HARASHIMA hesitated to shake Aoki’s hand after the match but eventually did so. Aoki then dedicated today’s victory to Kendo Kashin because this is the first championship a Hagure IGF fighter has won since its formation.

STRONG HEARTS are here to stay now that they’ve won the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. The match begun with CIMA and Soma Takao in the ring. Takao got “BIMA” chants from the crowd, referencing his CIMA tribute gimmick way back when he was in a college wrestling club. Takao tried to out-CIMA CIMA by hitting the Schwein and then trying to win with the Mad Splash. CIMA blocked the splash then hit his moves of doom. Venus, Iconoclasm then the original Mad Splash put Takao away and made STRONG HEARTS the new champions! CIMA said the result was obvious after he beat Takeshita in Sumo Hall. T-Hawk warned the rest of DDT that they will be waiting here forever. If that bothers them then step up and try to take the belts away! CIMA announced that the unit will be sticking around in DDT for November and will be here in full force. Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel are coming to DDT with STRONG HEARTS! CIMA also said he is waiting for Danshoku Dieno to come back and might invite Gorgeous Matsuno to join the unit in Dieno’s absence. One last thing, CIMA wants to defend the 6-Man Titles in China for OWE before their next DDT appearance!

Danshoku Dieno made his first public appearance since Sumo Hall but not in the way anyone expected. KUDO found Dieno wandering around with no memory of anything. Hisaya Imabayashi asked KUDO to pull down his pants because it might help Dieno regain his memory. Dieno was disgusted at the idea of somebody stripping naked in front of a big audience. Imabayashi thinks Dieno is in a deep state of shock after he was locked inside a casket at Sumo Hall. He is giving Dieno time to mentally recover. However, if Dieno finishes in the Dramatic General Election Top 20 then he must wrestle at the next Korakuen Hall show on 25th November, whether he has his memories back or not!

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is no longer in the hands of SKE48 thanks to Maki Ito. The previous champion Yuki Arai defended the title in an all joshi Battle Royal. When it came down to Arai and Ito, Makoto Oishi got involved so Arai wouldn’t have to fight. However, Arai scolded Oishi because she wanted to wrestle and she gave him a Heel Kick. She did the same Heel Kick to Ito but it was dodged. Ito then put Arai in a Crab Hold to submit her and win the title. They shook hands after the match but Arai suddenly gave her a School Boy. Ito kicked out then chased Arai out of the ring.

Since today was the final day of voting in the Dramatic Election, the wrestlers in the 6-Man Tag all wanted to impress their voters. Mizuki Watase is back to wrestling in his old gear and he is now dying his hair red. Keisuke Ishii picked up the win for his team.

Sanshiro Takagi had his body painted up to look like a pumpkin monster for Halloween. The AbemaTV audience voted for what punishment the loser of Match #3 would take. Each option involved a Muay Thai kickboxer. The fans chose the loser getting kicked in the ass with 79% of the vote. Oishi pinned Takagi and he took the punishment. Everyone then lost control of the kickboxer and he kicked all of them away from the ring.

Nobuhiro Shimatani and El Lindaman were both making fun of each other for being short so their heights were measured by the referee before their match. Lindaman is taller but Shimatani blamed Lindaman for using his hair to cheat. Lindaman ended up beating Shimatani while CIMA interacted with Mad Paulie outside the ring.

Daisuke Kiso wound up getting involved in the multi-man cascading leg split spot during the opener. At one point “Thriller” played and everyone did the zombie dance. Honda interrupted it to do his Gongitsune strikes to everybody. It didn’t work on Akito because he was wearing glasses. Akito was then able to put Honda in the Scorpion Lock to give ALL OUT the win. Akito describes today as the beginning of ALL OUT’s rebuilding process. They want to regain the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles.

The D-Ou Grand Prix 2019 blocks were announced. Block A consists of Daisuke Sasaki, HARASHIMA, Kazusada Higuchi, Akito, MAO, Puma King and Go Shiozaki. Block B consists of Konosuke Takeshita, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao, Masahiro Takanashi, Mike Bailey, Sammy Guevara and Shinya Aoki.

Moeka Haruhi is now a part of the Ganpro roster. He first match is against one of the early figures Ganpro attempted to build a joshi division around, Manami Kanda. The match-up seems more to be an excuse for Yumehito Imanari to perv over Kanda’s figure again though.

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.2 ~WRESTLE THRASHING MAD~”, 08/12/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. FUMA Vs Great Sasuke

Something that has bothered FUMA for years was the period when The Great Sasuke came out to “Metal On Metal” by Anvil. That song isn’t heavy metal enough by FUMA’s standards so he wants to show Sasuke what real heavy metal is like!

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Yusuke Kubo and SAGAT are also booked on the show. Bands announced to perform include Dragon’s Den, Hellhound, Alice In Hell, Collar Bone, The Kandarivas and Black Sweet. Hellhound will perform “Warriors Of Rising Sun” live for FUMA’s ring entrance.
