D-King Grand Prix 2019 Schedule… In 2018

November 13, 2018

The D-Ou Grand Prix is back for a second go around. The first tournament held in January earlier this year was a successful concept for DDT. Even though the upcoming edition is labelled as the 2019 tournament, the first show will take place on 30th November and the rest takes place during December 2018. The reason for this is the winner of the D-Ou GP will get a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “JUDGEMENT 2019” on 17th February. If the tournament was to be held in January like the first one then there wouldn’t be much time left to set up and promote the Sumo Hall show coming out of it. The same format of two groups containing seven wrestlers each is being kept. Each block match has a 30 minute time limit, winners get 2 points and draws of any kind are worth 1 point. The final between the two block winners will have no time limit. In the case of a tie for 1st place in one of the blocks then the direct confrontation rule will be used. The results of the group match(es) between the tied wrestlers determines who advances to the final. If that also ends in a tie then a tiebreaker match will be held on the 30th December show before the final takes place.

They also don’t know what messages Dieno will write on them so it’s probably best for fans to clearly request what they want him to say.

DDT “MAO LOCAL BOX OFFICE ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAISEIKAN~ SATO IS WHERE THE SCHOOL IS LOCATED” Results

November 11, 2018

DDT “MAO LOCAL BOX OFFICE ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAISEIKAN~ SATO IS WHERE THE SCHOOL IS LOCATED”, 11/11/2018
Miyagi Osaki-shi Matsuyama B & G Ocean Center
486 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Toru Owashi defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Nodowa Otoshi (7:55).
2. Municipal Gatekeeper, Volunteering To Challenge The Champion Of Ganryu Island!: Keisuke Okuda & Makoto Oishi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Gorgeous Matsuno when Oishi pinned Matsuno with a School Boy (10:34).
3. Shunma Katsumata defeated Kazuki Hirata with the ¡Hasta La Vista! (9:37).
4. Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 6: Mad Paulie defeated Yuki Iino with the Reverse Splash (8:37).
5. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Kota Umeda & Mizuki Watase when Takeshita submitted Watase with a Modified Armbar (11:20).
6. Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Antonio Honda when Sasaki submitted Takanashi with La Mistica Cross Facelock (15:55).
7. MAO Local Triumph! Osaki Specialty Special Tag Match: MAO & Kazusada Higuchi defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when MAO pinned Ueno with the Cannonball 450 (20:57).

MAO thanked the “many, many, many, many” fans that came to see the show today. He calls the show a success and next time wants DDT to do an even bigger event in Matsuyama. Other wrestlers from Konosuke Takeshita to Gorgeous Matsuno praised MAO throughout the shot and built him up to be Osaki’s next big star. The mayor of Osaki City was even in attendance to offer his welcome to MAO and DDT.

If Masahiro Takanashi thought he had turned the tables on Daisuke Sasaki after yesterday’s result, he was in for a rude awakening today. Sasaki avoided the Takatonic and used La Mistica to put his opponent into the Cross Facelock for the victory. Sasaki brought up Takanashi’s comments from yesterday only to tell him that he doesn’t remember yesterday so he wasn’t effected by it! Sasaki joked that Takanashi usually wins around three matches a year. Sasaki is fine with being involved in one of those results but he sweats that Takanashi will never beat him ever again! Nobuhiro Shimatani then took the microphone to praise Tetsuya Endo and declare war on Osaki City on behalf of DAMNATION. Sasaki gave Shimatani a Low Blow to shut him up.

Yuki Iino is now at 6 losses in 6 matches for his trial series. He has one more match left but when, where and who it will be against is currently a mystery.

Shunma Katsumata made a request to Kazuki Hirata before their match began. Since the show was in MAO’s hometown, Katsumata wanted Hirata to sing and dance to an NωA song instead of “TOKYO GO!” Hirata agreed and he played MAO’s role in a performance of “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” with Katsumata and Makoto Oishi. Hirata then Clotheslined the both of them when the song ended. Katsumata got his revenge with the ¡Hasta La Vista! and won the match.

Gorgeous Matsuno wanted to sing during Match #2. Makoto Oishi rolled him up during the performance to pin him. Matsuno came back out during intermission and sang again this time without any interruption.

November 10, 2018

6. Recollect The Memories Of Danshoku Dieno! Niigata Specialty! The Compliance Presents Special Unit Confrontation!: Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda defeated Super Sasadango Machine & Makoto Oishi when Honda pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop (13:07) (Special Witness: Danshoku Dieno).

Even though today’s show was in Super Sasadango Machine’s hometown of Niigata, the focus was on Danshoku Dieno trying to get his memory back. Wearing jeans and a grey jumper, Dieno was encouraged by the other wrestlers to go kiss an audience member. Dieno instead just gave the man a friendly hug. He watched the main event and mentioned the atmosphere surrounding it felt familiar. However the match wasn’t exciting enough to keep his attention and DJ Nira came out to tell the others he fell asleep. The Compliance all tried to make the match more exciting but Nira decided to take matters into his own hands and he threw Dieno into the ring. Dieno got his head shoved into Makoto Oishi’s backside in a bid to wake him up. Dieno pointed at the wrestlers and shouted “You!” but denied he was Dieno when asked if he regained his memories. Oishi gave Dieno a Stunner and that seemed to finally work. Dieno took off his clothes revealing his Danshoku gear underneath and he gave Oishi the Danshoku Driver. Antonio Honda then pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop.

Honda & Kazusada Higuchi were rewarded with bags of rice from the local sponsor for winning the main event. Everybody welcomed Dieno back. Oishi called himself the second generation of Danshoku Dieno but really Dieno is the one and only. Oishi wanted to give a bag of rice over to Dieno but somehow he ended up dropping it onto Dieno’s head, knocking him out! When Dieno came to he asked where he was and who he was? He’s lost his memory again! Akito entered the ring concerned about Dieno because they are supposed to have a big match together at Korakuen Hall on 25th November. Akito can’t get the match he wants if Dieno doesn’t remember anything. Sasadango promised him Dieno’s amnesia will be cured by the time the match happens.

Masahiro Takanashi unveiled a new pinning move and successfully used it to beat Daisuke Sasaki. The Laphroaig is set up like a Paradise Lock but instead of rolling the opponent over, Takanashi instead spins himself around and bridges himself over the opponent to pin them while they are still twisted like a knot. The move is named after a scotch whisky. Takanashi made fun of Sasaki over the result. Sasaki’s been calling him the weakest link of Shuten-dōji so how must he feel about losing to him today? How will he feel when the weakest link beats him again to win the KO-D Openweight Title?

HARASHIMA added his concerns over Dieno’s situation and gave his best wishes for Dieno to get his memory back.
