With Marika Kobashi back in the groove she wants to team up with Reika Saiki again and regain the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. The Muscle JK team won the belts last May but had to vacate them three months later when Kobashi went down with her injury. They did not get an immediate title shot for two reason. One, Saiki already had a chance to win them back when she teamed with Maki Ito during Kobashi’s absence but lost the match. And two, another team wants to be in the next title match. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa are that other team. In her short time here in Tokyo Joshi Pro, Maki has spent most it in the ring with Noa both as teammates and opponents.

Chinsuke Nakamura spent today fighting off other pro wrestling impersonators outside Shin-Kiba 1st RING. The impersonators Hiroshi Tanabota and Monooki Goto approached Chinsuke several times to try and win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Chinsuke chased them off each time until the venue’s manager Mr. Sato opened a door and accidentally knocked Chinsuke out. Mr. Sato unintentionally pinned Chinsuke while he checked on him and ended up becoming the champion. Chinsuke won back the title a little while later when he ambushed Sato inside the building and trapped him under a ringside mat. Tanabota and Goto applauded from the bleachers.

Shinjuku FACE

1. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Winners Of 26/1 Tag Match

Yuka Sakazaki stood beside the arguments going on between the two teams vying for a title shot. She misread the situation and thought they were asking for a 4 Vs 2 match of some sort. To her credit, that kind of thinking might have avoided putting the Magical Sugar Rabbits in a situation where they would defend the titles against both teams in a 3 Way Tag Match. Instead they will go head to head with the better team out of the two potential challengers.

2. Toru Owashi, Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Nobuhiro Shimatani (w/ Danshoku Dieno) defeated Kazuki Hirata, MAO & Mizuki Watase when Shimatani pinned Hirata with a Miracle One Shot Cradle Cutback (12:09).
3. DDT Megaton Class 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi and Yuki Iino when Paulie pinned Iino with the Reverse Splash (9:27).
4. Masahiro Takanashi defeated Jason Kincaid with a School Boy (12:05).
5. HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno defeated Keisuke Okuda & Makoto Oishi when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (12:52).
6. The Mountain Of Akagi Is Also Available This Evening! Maebashi Specialty Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Kota Umeda when Endo pinned Umeda with a Swandive Firebird Splash (18:58).

DAMNATION are confident about their Sumo Hall matches and sent some messages in their own personal way. Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at Konosuke Takeshita while Takeshita was climbing the turnbuckles. This was after Takeshita put Sasaki into his own Cross Facelock. Tetsuya Endo did a move on Kota Umeda where he lifted him up in a Fireman’s Carry then dropped him into a Thrust Kick, Naomichi Marufuji style. After the match Sasaki said that he isn’t going to act careless against Takeshita during their matches. Endo says he doesn’t think Marufuji is the pro wrestling genius, Sasaki is! Also Soma Takao. Sasaki started poking fun at Endo by calling him stupid. Endo got annoyed and ended the promo with the DAMNATION catchphrase. He tried to add the phrase “I’m not stupid” to the motto but flubbed his line and accidentally said he is stupid.

The match between Masahiro Takanashi and Jason Kincaid had some shenanigans to it. Kincaid used mediatation to make most of Takanashi’s moves ineffective. To combat this, Takanashi pulled part of Kincaid’s costume over his head to block his sight. When Yukinori Matsui tried to help Kincaid with the outfit, Kincaid put him in a Cobra Twist thinking it was his opponent. Takanashi snuck behind Kincaid and used a School Boy to steal the win.

Kazuki Hirata approached Mizuki Watase after the opener and asked him if he was satisfied with beating Nobuhiro Shimatani. Hirata told him he should be going after the established veteran generation wrestlers instead. Hirata then called MAO down to the ring and asked him if he is happy with DDT the way it is now. MAO said it’s not good. Hirata convinced the two of them to join his side and set up the Maebashi New Generation Army to take over DDT! They attacked Danshoku Dieno at ringside until Toru Owashi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga ran out to rescue him. They all decided to change Match #2 into a 6-Man Tag with the New Generation against Owashi, Matsunaga & Shimatani. Hirata went for the Miracle One Shot Cradle but Shimatani reversed it to get the three count. Perhaps Hirata’s New Generation team idea doesn’t have any legs to it.

Dieno has announced that his mascot character has again gone through a number of name changes. Chin Godzilla was changed to Anal And Snow Queen. Then it was changed to Anus Of Wonderland. He asked for audience feedback to the names and did not get much applause for either. So he got rid of them and decided to call the mascot Cali Erection. The name is still temporary by the way.

9. DDT Extreme Title – ??? Match: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs HARASHIMA
10. KO-D Openweight Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

I’ve since figured out that Danshoku Dieno’s new creation OsuMAN Dankon is going to be some sort of mascot costume (aka a yura-chara). He must be trying to cash in on the recent popularity of Chiitan and Nyango Star. But now Dankon’s name has been changed to Chin Godzilla and even then that might not be the final choice by the time the show takes place.

The Iron Man Title Battle Royal is the most packed in years. Some new faces include Yuka Sakazaki and Mina Shirakawa from Tokyo Joshi Pro, Asuka, El Lindaman from #STRONGHEARTS, Scorpio X2 from OWE and last but not least Maku Donaruto.

We’re getting a rare singles match on the pre-show. Usually those matches on DDT Sumo Hall cards are all tags and Battle Royals.

1. Masahiro Takanashi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga defeated MAO & Gota Ihashi when Takanashi pinned Ihashi with an Oklahoma Roll (8:20).
2. Antonio Honda & Jason Kincaid defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Kincaid pinned Hirata with the Philosopher’s Stomp (10:26).
3. Kazusada Higuchi, Kota Umeda & Makoto Oishi defeated Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Umeda pinned Shimatani with the Umeda Driver (9:25).
4. Special Single Match: Asuka defeated Yuki Ueno with the Moonsault (10:29).
5. Number One In DDT Handsome King Decision Battle: HARASHIMA defeated Mizuki Watase with the Somato (12:17).
6. KAWASAKI Shin-yuri Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Mad Paulie & Hiroshi Yamato when Yamashita pinned Paulie with the Fable (19:16).

ALL OUT gets their first win over DAMNATION in 2019 but the spotlight was on Hiroshi Yamato to for the main event. When Daisuke Sasaki grabbed a chair to attack Konosuke Takeshita with, Yamato stopped him and pleaded to act like “Mexican Era” Sasaki. Sasaki swung the chair at him but Yamato ducked and Mad Paulie took the blow. Takeshita then hit the Fable on Paulie to win the match. Takeshita credited Yamato’s sense of justice for giving ALL OUT the win today. He asked Yamato to sing for everyone. He did and ALL OUT joined in.

HARASHIMA has faced Mizuki Watase in singles match three times and has won all of them. However he thinks today was more difficult than the previous bouts. He felt Shigehiro Irie’s influence this time especially when Watase did the Cannonball into the corner. He expects Watase will become more and more stronger but HARASHIMA will still beat him every time.

Sanshiro Takagi promised a next generation talent to face Yuki Ueno and he delivered. Asuka is back in DDT! Ueno was no match for Japan’s first genderless wrestler and Asuka grabbed the win with a Choke Slam, German Suplex and the Moonsault. Takagi asked Hisaya Imabayashi to book Asuka on more DDT shows. In particular he wants Asuka to wrestle at Korakuen Hall, Itabashi Green Hall and Sumo Hall in the coming weeks. Asuka told the DDT fans “long time, no see” and to expect more action in the DDT ring regardless of gender.

Kazuki Hirata complained that somebody stole his entrance gear before the show. It turned out Jason Kincaid stole it and wore it down to the ring himself! He even did his own dance to “TOKYO GO!” The Hirata GO! glasses wound up getting destroyed so Toru Owashi replaced them with a pair of sunglasses he randomly found. When he handed them to Hirata, “CRASH” played over the speakers. Hirata ran out of the room and came back dressed as Masahiro Chono! He gave Owashi a Yakuza Kick but Honda snuck behind him and did a Scorpion Death Drop. Kincaid followed up with the Philosopher’s Stomp for the win.

Looks like Masahiro Takanashi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga are looking for a KO-D Tag Team Titles shot together. They demanded that Gota Ihashi be taken out of the opening match and be replaced by Mike Bailey. MAO agreed but when it was time for the Moonlight Express to make their entrance, Ihashi came out dressed as Bailey! Ihashi tried to do Bailey’s moves including the Machine Gun Middle Kicks. With MAO they also tried to do the Michinoku Tornado Driver and Skylab Hurricane. Unfortunately Ihashi missed the Moonsault and Takanashi pinned him with an Oklahoma Roll.
