Hunt For Full Face, Okuda Will Take DNA To School, TOKYO Princess Tag Titles

August 16, 2017

DNA “DNA 36”, 07/09/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Yuki Ino Vs X
2. Daiki Shimomura Vs Masato Kamino
3. Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda Vs Diego & Royce Isaacs
4. Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Keisuke Okuda & Mizuki Watase
5. Dai Suzuki Vs Tanomusaku Toba
6. Shunma Katsumata & Mike Bailey
7. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Full Face

Both MAO & Rekka have been victims of attacks by the mysterious Full Face. MAO blames Naomi Yoshimura for being involved in the mystery too. He was already determined to unmask Full Face and discover the biker’s real identity but is even more so now that DNA has promised to refund tickets to people who do not enjoy the show.

Keisuke Okuda’s comments about about the DNA roster being lukewarm talents has ruffled some feathers. Both Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani would be happy to prove him wrong. Even Mizuki Watase would rather fight him than team with him. But Watase promises to bring an exciting fight for Iwasaki & Shimatani out of respect for them. Okuda has called the three of them elementary students and he will teach them all how to fight properly.

Koju Takeda is from Triple Six.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Dai Suzuki Vs Tanomusaku Toba
2. Shunma Katsumata & Mike Bailey
3. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Full Face

The biker mystery in DNA continues and Naomi Yoshimura seems to be involved in it. The biker, now going by the name Full Face, was unmasked as Dai Suzuki during DNA’s Beer Garden show. But that makes no sense because the biker had interacted with Suzuki in front of the audience earlier in the show. Yoshimura said this is all to make DNA more interesting and he seems to enjoy it. In fact, if anybody attending the event thinks it was a boring show then DNA promises to give them a full refund.

8. Pro Wrestling Koshien 2017 – Final: Naomi Yoshimura defeated MAO with the Throwaway Power Bomb (14:19).

DNA prepared for its next chapter by holding the Pro Wrestling Koshien tournament. Not only that but they introduced a brand new helix looking logo too. Naomi Yoshimura powered through the tournament beating Dai Suzuki, Mizuki Watase and MAO to be crowned the winner. Yoshimura said the result was proof that he is the strongest in DNA. With Kazusada Higuchi now gone, Yoshimura will take his place as the ace. He is prepared to do what it takes to make DNA interesting.

A big mystery surrounding the tournament involved an unknown person in biker gear attacking the wrestlers. He showed up again after the Yoshimura Vs Suzuki match. But in a surprise he did not attack Suzuki like he did the first time they met. Instead he shook his hand, hugged him and helped walk him away from the ring. The biker reappeared during Yoshimura’s victory speech but was immediately and easily stopped by Rekka. The biker was unmasked and revealed to be… Dai Suzuki? Yoshimura laughed and told everyone to look forward to his fun ideas.

In non-tournament action, Masato Kamino had his debut match teaming with Rekka to take on Gran MilliMeters. Kamino appeared with a flashy entrance jacket that was rumoured to cost 100,000 yen to make. He took the pinfall loss as expected he was proud of his debut. He had been training for two and a half years for this match. It took so long because of knee injuries derailing him. But his father told he his dreams will come true if he never gives up.

DNA’s 3rd chapter will officially begin with their 7th September show in Shin-Kiba. Mike Bailey, Royce Isaacs and Tanomusaku Toba will be on the show along with Koju Takeda from Triple Six and Keisuke Okuda from IGF. Okuda is planning to become a regular wrestler for DNA. He had been watching the tournament and considered the wrestling minor league. He warned that he is coming to DNA to destroy everyone but wants everyone in DNA to use that as motivation. Do not be afraid of him, come out and fight!

Kota Umeda announced his goal is to return from injury in time for the Kumamoto show on 9th December.

Who is this person and what is their goal?

9. KO-D Openweight Title – Good Com Asset Presents: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

Now the stakes are high for Sanshiro Takagi Vs Danshoku Dino. Dino wants full control of DDT if he wins. But Dino’s mother wants him to settle down so if Takagi wins, Dino must get married. This will be settled with a Weapon Rumble match, the first to happen in DDT since 2014. At set times, a new weapon is brought into the match and often these weapons can be anything from objects to famous wrestlers. With this being a 20 year celebration for DDT don’t be surprised if some faces from the past appear.

The full squads for the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match are now known and what a glut of insanity it is!

Tokyo Joshi Pro are looking for idols to participate as lumberjacks in the Azusa Takigawa Vs Maki Ito grudge match. They would prefer idols who like wrestling and have experience in sports.

2. Qualifier Tournament – Round 1: Rekka defeated Daiki Shimomura with a Cross Armbreaker (7:40).
3. Qualifier Tournament – Final: Dai Suzuki defeated Rekka by Pinfall (11:50).

A small qualifying bracket was formed for the upcoming Pro Wrestling Koshien tournament to be held by DNA during Beer Garden week. The qualifying matches were held at night in DDT’s dojo and broadcast live on DDT UNIVERSE. Dai Suzuki won the tournament but the final descended into chaos when a mysterious man in a biker outfit entered the room and attacked Suzuki, Rekka and Yukinori Matsui with chairs. When this man finished the beating he dragged a bloodied Suzuki on top of Rekka and left while Matsui counted the pin. The broadcast ended with Amon Tsurumi checking on the wounded and calling for help.


Partial Fighting Beer Garden 2017 Schedule

July 25, 2017

It’s that time of year again when DDT spends a week during the summer drinking itself stupid and inviting everyone along to come see the results. Nine different shows in seven days will take place in Shinjuku FACE with plenty of beer being served in the meantime. Every show has a different flavour with many being produced by the wrestlers themselves. So expect to see some ideas that are different or unusual for even regular DDT events. This year the published cards have a lot of gaps in them so some surprises may be in store.

The week begins with a double header held by Tokyo Joshi Pro and DDT. Tokyo Joshi kicks it off with the final rounds of the Tokyo Princess Cup. Syoko Nakajima is aiming to reach the final again for the fourth year in a row. Yuka Sakazaki has been unbeatable since she became the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion. Reika Saiki and Mizuki are both hoping to win the tournament in their first go.

We get to see the regenerated NEO Biishiki-gun back in the ring. There’s also risk of some Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title shenanigans with Maho Kurone in the house.

6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

DDT’s first show of the series is pretty straight forward. Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo get to scramble before their big Sumo Hall main event. Kazuki Hirata returns to DDT after being deported back in April. Oh, and Antonio Honda gets to play with bras again.

The field of candidates for this year’s Dramatic General Election will be announced during this show.

3. Round System Drinking & Driving Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Masahiro Takanashi
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Antonio Honda, Rocky Kawamura & Tanomusaku Toba

Out of all the shows that risk drinking the bar dry, this is amongst the most likely. Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi have a rematch from last year where they got to drink inbetween very short rounds. They both got so drunk neither could continue so it was declared a draw. Adding Rocky Kawamura and Tanomusaku Toba to the main event provides the punch drunk effect that usually shows up on one of these events.

Dave Crist makes his DDT debut here teaming with his buddy Shigehiro Irie.

4. Play Sandman: Dave Crist Vs Danshoku Dino Vs X

An open invitation is being sent out for wrestlers to Enter Sandman. Gender, nationality and skill level is not a problem. Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine want to give everyone a chance to have a summer memory. Hopefully music licensing won’t be a problem on DDT UNIVERSE. Who am I kidding?

Super Sasadango Machine Vs Ken Ohka is a match 15 years in the making apparently.

The series ends with the annual 6-Man Tag Team Lottery where the teams are randomly paired together by fans in the audience. The other annual event to look out for is the Ghost Story Death Match. It’s been kind of difficult to set up because every year the story teller keeps dying on the way to the venue but shows up anyway!
