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.

The return of The Bachelor Japan’s Rintaro Oyaizu has caused infighting among The Compliance. Oyaizu has been teaching Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno how to be popular with women. Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda are mad that they are being left out. The two sides have been told to go find a partner and settle their problem with a 6-Man Tag Match. Here’s something I learned about Oyaizu and why he’s able to do these appearances for DDT. His day job is being a director for CyberAgent’s video game division! How’s that for company synergy?

Jun Kasai, Super Sasadango Machine and Yumehito Imanari will be on the show.

Maybe it was skill or maybe it was blind luck but HARASHIMA defeated Antonio Honda in the Blindfold & Bra Match. At one point Honda rolled out of the ring and HARASHIMA tried to chase after him. Honda pulled the shirts off of Yuki Iino and Nobuhiro Shimatani when they stood too close to him. They were both wearing bras underneath even though it wasn’t mandatory for them to do so. Back in the ring Honda applied an Octopus Hold to HARASHIMA and succeeded in unhooking his bra. HARASHIMA defended himself well so Honda rolled him into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch. That was a grave mistake because the positioning allowed HARASHIMA to unhook Honda’s bra and strip it right off him by kicking out of the hold, resulting in a victory for HARASHIMA! After the match he said he hasn’t decided on the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. For now his focus is on winning the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie on 22nd July!

Another good effort from Kota Umeda that just wasn’t enough in his latest match of the Mad Dog Trials. Dick Togo’s ring awareness allowed him to trap Umeda in the Cross Facelock several times. The one that made Umeda finally tap out was transitioned into a modified version of the move that looks similar to the Dick Killer. Togo thinks Umeda can still grow into becoming the so called “Mad Dog” that he claims to be but for now he is still in the stage where he should be establishing a style for himself. His advice to Umeda is to wrestle more and more because pro wrestling is more than a career, it’s an experience.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was up for grabs in a 10 minute long Battle Royal. The champion KUDO had Masahiro Takanashi fighting by his side against the rest of the field but the chaos was too much to handle. Nobuhiro Shimatani found his moment to strike and he pinned KUDO with a School Boy to win the title. Everyone ganged up on him until Saori Anou found her spot to win the belt with a Fisherman Suplex. KUDO had a change of heart and decided to protect Anou by fending off those who attacked her including including his friends Takanashi and Saki Akai. Anou didn’t appreciate KUDO’s aid and she kicked him out of the ring. She got into a back and forth with Akai until Akai pinned her with a Diving Cross Body. Shimatani got the title back with a Small Package with two minutes left to go. Konosuke Takeshita made his presence felt by giving Shimatani a Brainbuster onto the title belt. Takeshita got the pin and stayed as champion for the final minute of the match.

The Battle Royal was over but there were still people who wanted the Iron Man Title. Yuki Iino tried to pin Takeshita with a School Boy outside the ring but he kicked out. Danshoku Dieno then ran out and gave Takeshita the Lip Lock in the ring. He went for the pin but Sanshiro Takagi suddenly broke it up by throwing a chair at Dieno! Takagi invited this week’s special guest Akari Suda from SKE48 down to the ring so she can become the champion! Yukinori Matsui was against the idea but immediately changed his mind when Suda shook his hand. Takagi gave Takeshita a Stunner then Suda locked him into the Ocotpus Hold, the dreaded finishing move of World Idol Pro Wrestling star Octopus Suda! Takeshita clearly did not give up but Matsui ruled he was knocked out and rewarded the Iron Man Title to Suda! Takagi warned Suda that she may be attacked by people who want the championship at any time. Suda asked Takagi if he can protect her if that is the case.

The 3 Way Trios match wasn’t held under Hardcore rules but MAO still used a plastic toy hammer on some of his opponents during the match. Sammy Guevara and Facade ran circles around the rest of the participants and floored them all with dives out of the ring. Guevara then finished off Daiki Shimomura with the 630 Splash to give Irie-gun the victory. Tetsuya Endo wants MAO to know that their KO-D Tag Team Titles match on 22nd July won’t be a Hardcore match so he better leave the weapons at home. Mad Paulie stole some pictures of Facade from the merch stand. Endo scolded Paulie until he found a picture of Saori Anou among them.

The BIG LOVE between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka is strong for the most part. Well there was that moment when Sasaki accidentally hit Asuka with a Clothesline but that honestly was an accident. Asuka recovered and countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstasy into a Choke Slam of her own. She then pinned Oishi with the Moonsault. Sasaki begged Asuka to forgive him after the match. What he did was the biggest tragedy of this century and he promised to never do it again. Asuka said “BIG LOVE!” to Sasaki and they hugged. When asked about their upcoming singles match against each other at Korakuen Hall, Sasaki told everyone to look forward to it because they will show love to each other in the ring.

With the future of DNA up in the air, the Naomi Kingdom are looking to the future and it involves finishing off their rivals on the final show. Keisuke Okuda doesn’t care where they end up because he isn’t afraid of anything. If all of the juniors below him have fear then they should stop wrestling. Naomi Yoshimura wants to take down Yuki Ueno once and for all before DNA is done. After that he will be free to do what he wants whether it is in DDT, DNA or anywhere else in the company.

Akito’s submission skills got him out of a jam. He reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock from Yuki Ueno to grab the victory.

Danshoku Dieno didn’t let his one show suspension from the main Maji Manji card let him down. He came out for his dark match with cans of beer ready to get the crowd fired up! He was also drinking to promote the Beer Garden shows taking place in August. He invited Rekka to join in the fun and they both wrestled while drinking. It got a bit out of control when they spat beer with each other and used the beer cans as weapons.

Irie-gun is really taking on an international flavour. Indian wrestler Baliyan Akki (sorry for getting his name wrong all this time) who has been competing in DNA and Ganbare☆Wrestling this year is the latest addition to the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito
0. NO TV Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Rekka
1. Daisuke Sasaki & Asuka Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara & Facade Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Keisuke Ishhi, MAO & Daiki Shimomura
3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: KUDO (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Toru Owashi Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Saori Anou
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The main event will be light hearted but both HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will take it seriously. There’s a championship and a Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line after all.

Kota Umeda is currently 0-3 in his trial series but the wealth of talent and experience on offer is making this a worthwhile project for the youngster. Dick Togo is next up on his list.

This week’s episode saw the surprise first appearance of the “Neon Ninja” Facade, walking down to the ring as part of Irie-gun. The guy is a high risk taker and adds another dangerous element to Shigehiro Irie’s growing faction.

A change in attitude is afoot in DAMNATION and it is all because Daisuke Sasaki has fallen in love. He and Asuka originally hit it off at the Toshimaen Street Wrestling show back in May and when they got to team up again this week, Sasaki did everything he could to protect Asuka during the match. Sasaki says DAMNATION now stands for “Big Love” and he is eager to team up with Asuka again. While Asuka is calling herself the “DAMNATION Diva” there hasn’t been any official decision made in the group yet to induct her as the newest member. She’s at least in a better position in connection to the group than Nobuhiro Shimatani so far.

Danshoku Dieno is serving a one show suspension from the “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” broadcast after he was sent off during the World Cup Rules match this week. He is relegated to the dark match because of this.

DDT “DRAMATIC MOOD SEIJO↑↑ 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie Vs Kouki Iwasaki Vs Yuki Iino

6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara Vs HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno
7. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO

Another city vs city grudge has popped up in DDT with Tetsuya Endo and MAO both fighting for their hometowns. Seijo Hall plays the neutral ground for those two to solve their differences.

DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga

I think Shunma Katsumata should have been in this match teaming with Akito. Then I remember Katsumata only has a low tier membership with his local Gold’s Gym so he probably doesn’t see the point in travelling over to the grand opening of a new branch.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. Shinsyu Pro Wrestling Offer Match: X Vs X
2. Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi Vs Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda
3. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Nobuhiro Shimatani
4. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons have stopped the gimmick and will return to normal. That means Kazuki Hirata is back in the spots where Hiratimo Dragon was previously advertised in.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Yuki Ueno
1. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi, Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Sammy Guevara, Jason Kincaid, Facade & Mizuki Watase
2. Uchikomi! Belt Scramble Tag Rumble: KUDO & Saki Akai Vs Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi Vs Antonio Honda & Alex Ace Vs Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Super Sasadango Machine & Yuki Iino Vs Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi
3. Big Love! Special Single Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Asuka
4. T2HiJoshi Vs ALL OUT Joshi ~Korakuen Super Hot Whirlpool!~: Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata Vs Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Daisuke Sasaki’s love for Asuka has led to a singles match between the two. Except maybe Sasaki doesn’t think it’s a wrestling match. Whatever it is, he’s organising something for Asuka and so far she’s going along with it.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #12”, 24/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Meiko Satomura, DASH Chisako & Cassandra Miyagi

Tenshin Nasukawa is cleared to go and ready to return so he can kick Ken Ohka’s ass!

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2018 ~ HISTORY’S STRONGEST 40,000 TATAMI MOVEMENT DRAMATIC DREAM NATURE LAND TWIN AND HIS YOUNGER BROTHER~”, 02/09/2018

This Month’s Maji Manji Matches, Name Contra Name In BASARA, ALL OUT Joshi

July 2, 2018

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #10”, 03/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Mad Paulie Vs Daiki Shimomura
0. NO TV Match: Soma Takao Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani
1. Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi Vs Keisuke Ishii & Kota Umeda
2. Deliver It To Mari Yaguchi! It Is A 3 Way Match!: Isami Kodaka Vs Sammy Guevara Vs Yuki Ueno
3. Timo Timo Timo Timo Dragons All Together Step!: Ultimo Dragon, Takatimo Dragon, Washitimo Dragon & Hiratimo Dragon Vs KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Yuki Iino
4. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs HARASHIMA & Antonio Honda
5. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Asuka Vs Akito, Shunma Katsumata & Saki Akai
6. Spring Special In The Summer! Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Kazusada Higuchi Vs MAO Vs Masashi Takeda

DDT is mixing up some ideas for this month’s “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” episodes. First up they are bringing in death match specialist Masashi Takeda to take part in a crazy Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match. Kazusada Higuchi’s involvement guarantees a broken table or two. MAO also gets a little out of control in these kind of matches too. Konosuke Takeshita is kind of the odd man out but this is the sort of variety he’s been looking to get into since losing the KO-D Openweight Title.

HARASHIMA has both of his upcoming major opponents involved in his match. He teams with Antonio Honda a week before their DDT Extreme Title match. On the opposing side, Shigehiro Irie is ramping up the pressure against his next intended challenger.

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons are hoping that Ultimo Dragon will want to team with them. The unmasking stuff isn’t going to fly with him.

As soon as Isami Kodaka found out that singer Mari Yaguchi was the special guest for this episode he asked to be a part of the show.

It’s DAMNATION versus DAMNATION in the dark match. Okay, not really. Maybe some day Nobuhiro Shimatani can get officially added to the group as a proper member instead of a gofer boy.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL FIGHT”, 08/07/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Rika Tatsumi
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuu Vs Nodoka-oneesan
3. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase Vs Hyper Misao Vs Yuki Aino
4. Miyu Yamashita, Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Miu, Raku & Hinano
5. Sakisama, Azusa Christie & Martha Vs Shoko Nakajima, Yuki Kamifuku & Hikari
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The 8 year old maid Martha returns to Tokyo Joshi Pro after she was happily reunited with her parents last year. Thing you should look out for here is how Azusa Christie will handle being in a trio. She usually doesn’t like having other women teaming with Sakisama. But Martha is already a trusted member of NEO Biishiki-gun so there shouldn’t be any trouble in the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
2. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
3. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The Extreme Title is up for grabs in a rematch of the dreaded stipulation from November 2013. Both HARASHIMA and Honda will wrestle blindfolded while wearing bras. The goal is to reach out and strip off the opponent’s bra. HARASHIMA won the first time but Honda has gained more experience in similar matches since then, winning one such bout at Sumo Hall in August 2015.

The loser of that will have to change their name from Ryuichi to Ryuji. Tsutomu Oosugi is assigned as the referee for both matches.

DNA “DNA 46 ~OSAKA’S FIRST EXPANSION! WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE DNA?~”, 16/07/2018
Osaka Konohana Community Hall

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura & Koju Takeda Vs Katsumi Oribe, Yuto Kikuchi & Yuki Aoki

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. T2HiJoshi Vs ALL OUT Joshi ~Korakuen Super Hot Whirlpool!~: Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata Vs Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie (c) Vs Mike Bailey & MAO
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

ALL OUT are being put through an experiment to prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence against the Sendai Girls. They won’t be wrestling on 22nd July. Instead their cousins Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun will come in to take on another set of DDT cousins in a match they will probably get away with calling a “joshi” bout.

The “DAMNATION DIVA” Asuka and “The Vengeful One” Alex Ace will be on the show. Ace is a 31 year old Spanish wrestler originally trained by Joe E. Legend and now learning his trade from Angelico. He is 209cm high and weighs 115kg.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #12”, 24/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Meiko Satomura, DASH Chisako & Cassandra Miyagi

This isn’t going to be a friendly day out between ALL OUT and Sendai Girls. Meiko Satomura made it clear that ALL OUT are now enemies in her eyes. ALL OUT’s plan to defend the titles against outsiders may end at the starting blocks if they don’t take this match seriously.

The last couple of times Daisuke Sasaki and Jun Kasai were in the ring together they were rivals. Now they have to be on the same page to fight Irie-gun.
