7. Ultra Special Single Match: Yoshihiro Takayama defeated Danshoku Dino with the Lip Lock (10:36).
8. Humanity Is A Battle Blooming In A Huge Ring Of Naniwa! Osaka Specialty Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Akito defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when HARASHIMA pinned Honda with the Somato (19:26).

Konosuke Takeshita remains confident he can beat HARASHIMA at Saitama Super Arena. He’s been telling himself he is the future of DDT ever since he debuted. Now that the Saitama Super Arena main event has been decided, he must beat HARASHIMA there to prove it. HARASHIMA told him he’s looking forward to the match and shook his hand with a big smile. But when Takeshita didn’t smile back, HARASHIMA’s expression changed and he refused to let go of the handshake until they were pulled away.

For the last week Soma Takao has been thinking of his own future. He was advised by Amon Tsurumi to join one of DDT’s units in order to improve his position on the roster. At the end of the show Takao approached Smile Squash and asked if he could join their side. He fought against them many times and ultimately he wants to beat HARASHIMA but until then he would like to work with him. T2Hide interrupted, Sanshiro Takagi wants Takao to join them instead. They’ll even trade Kazuki Hirata to Smile Squash if they have to! Yasu Urano told him they don’t want Hirata. Then NωA came out. They want Takao to be an idol like them. Tsurumi stopped the arguing and came up with a solution. There will be a Takao Battle Match on 12th February between Takao, Urano, Takagi and Oishi. If Takao wins he gets to join whichever unit he wants. If any other wrestler wins then their unit claims Takao. Any of the units not currently involved in the match can also enter it if they want to.

Danshoku Dino actually had Yoshihiro Takayama beaten with the Hell Car Combination with Makoto Oishi but pulled him up from the pin before the ref counted to three. Dino wasn’t done with him yet. He applied the Lip Lock but Takayama Hulked out of it and gave Dino his own Lip Lock. It was so powerful that Dino lost consciousness and was easily pinned afterwards. When he woke up Takayama told him the match was a painful struggle but the fighting is over. Takayama is no longer afraid of Dino. They both hugged and screamed “No Fear!” together.

Jun Kasai survived a Choke Slam through a table to beat Mad Paulie. A dog chain kept the two close to each other but Kasai decided to detach it from his collar and use the chain to tie up Paulie. With no way of escaping, Paulie was a sitting duck for the Pearl Harbour Splash. After the match Kasai nominated his DDT Extreme Title challenger for Saitama Super Arena. It’s Daisuke Sasaki! Kasai mentioned he has a relative’s wedding ceremony to attend that day but he wouldn’t miss this match for anything, even his parent’s funeral!

There is no question now that Team DNA are deserving KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions. They won the belts without beating the previous champions Shuten-dōji so naturally Shuten-dōji wanted the first title shot. Masahiro Takanashi’s run of victories ended when Kouki Iwasaki pinned him with the Leg Capture Suplex. Yukio Sakaguchi looked like he still wanted to fight after the match but instead he took one of the title belts and handed it to Kazusada Higuchi, accepting the result.

Hyota Echizenya appeared with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to talk with Takagi and Tsurumi. He entered the room wearing a Kotatsu table over his back and then invited the others to sit by the Kotatsu. Echizenya talked about being unable to write his current manuscript because of the pressures of defending the Iron Man title all the time. Their conversation was interrupted by Gota Ihashi and Dai Suzuki both wanting to attack the champion. Takagi stood up to defend Echizenya but accidentally flipped the Kotatsu on top of him in the process. 1…2…3! The Kotatsu table is the new champion! Tsurumi told Echizenya to pin the table and win the belt back but he declined. Echizenya originally won the title by beating the table so it is only fitting that the table won it back from him. He thanked DDT for the wonderful experience and he will now go back to writing his manuscript.

Naomi Yoshimura denied that he lost his tag match against DAMNATION. It was Yuki Ueno who submitted so under Yoshimura’s logic he’s the one who lost.

Guanchulo yelled about how much he hates children while he fought Yuni.

The opening match was held under Scramble Bunkhouse Lucha Glasses Rules.

A big main event is in store. Not just in physical size but in ego too. Naomi Yoshimura attended the match announcement wearing sunglasses and a fancy suit. He didn’t care about Akebono’s sumo accomplishments and ran down Kazusada Higuchi for losing to Mike Bailey and Ryota Nakatsu late last year. He threatened to blow away anyone who stands in his path. Higuchi was more polite. Being in the presence of Akebono is enough encouragement to withstand whatever Yuji Okabayashi throws at him. Akebono warned Yoshimura to respect him or be crushed.

DNA “FIGHTING GIG DNA EP.30 ~Starting Signal Run!~”, 23/02/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Stand By The Sky: Shunma Katsumata Vs Kotaro Suzuki
2. Running Without End: Kouki Iwasaki & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazushi Sakuraba & LEONA

The new look DNA welcomes Kazushi Sakuraba and LEONA to its relaunch next month. The two will take on Kouki Iwasaki & Mizuki Watase. The four of them appeared at a press conference with Sakuraba wearing a white jiu-jitsu belt over his suit. Sakuraba explained he wore it to represent his first time in DNA because it is the first belt you earn in jiu-jitsu. Iwasaki is only focusing on Sakuraba and hopes to fight him one on one at some point. Watase is thrilled to fight the man he watched on TV back in elementary school. However he and LEONA had a war of words over whether or not LEONA is worthy of being in the match. Sakuraba admitted he hasn’t seen LEONA wrestle but he thinks they can work together as a team.

Kotaro Suzuki was impressed by what he saw at the last DNA show and said he would be happy to come back. Shunma Katsumata took him up on that offer. Katsumata wants DNA to fight as fierce as Suzuki does.


DDT “DNA 29” Results

January 7, 2017

dna29-iwasaki-nakatsu

DDT “DNA 29”, 07/01/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
165 Fans

1. Kazuki Hirata defeated Daiki Shimomura with the GO☆GO☆Splash (5:46).
2. Akito & Yasu Urano defeated Guanchulo & Rekka when Urano pinned Guanchulo with a Cutback (8:50).
3. Antonio Honda defeated Dai Suzuki with the Octopus Hold (9:27).
4. Mizuki Watase & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Shimatani with the Throw Away Power Bomb (11:13).
5. Mike Bailey defeated MAO with the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop (8:55).
6. Kotaro Suzuki & Madoka defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Ueno when Suzuki pinned Ueno with the Blue Destiny (12:31).
7. Kouki Iwasaki defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Leg Capture Suplex (17:31).

Kouki Iwasaki finally got his win over Ryota Nakatsu! It took a Brainbuster onto a knee, a Buzzsaw Kick and the Leg Capture Suplex but Iwasaki finally did it. Iwasaki said he would have never been able to lose this match even if Nakatsu broke both of his legs. However he thanked Nakatsu for giving him his best. Nakatsu admitted he’s been looking down on DNA for the last couple of months but it’s only because he’s so focused on carrying BASARA. He told Iwasaki when he becomes the ace of BASARA he will come back to DNA for another top level match together. Iwasaki said when the new DNA is shown on 23rd February, he will stand in the centre as the ace and will not be beaten by anyone!

Kotaro Suzuki was impressed with what he saw in his first DNA match. He thinks it is a wonderful group of young wrestlers. If he ever needs his fill of wrestling, he’ll make sure to come back here. Shunma Katsumata took him up on that offer and challenged him to a singles match on 23rd February at the relaunch show.

Both MAO and Mike Bailey were complimentary towards each other after their match. Bailey calls MAO the best high flyer in DNA but Bailey’s black belt in Judo was the difference. MAO never knew Judo was practised in Canada and was amazed by Bailey’s speed and jumping ability.

Naomi Yoshimura continues his undefeated streak but he’s starting to bite off more than he can chew. He had a stand off with Kazusada Higuchi after their tag match. Backstage Noshimura said “the little guy” (Nobuhiro Shimatani) is okay but he’s coming to crush Higuchi!

Guanchulo wants to team regularly with Rekka in DNA from now on. They live together, train together and eat together so that means they should be a great team together.
