DDT “UTSUKOMI! PRESENTS ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017”, 23/07/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Dark Match: Kouki Iwasaki Vs Daiki Shimomura
1. Tetsuya Endo Vs Shunma Katsumata
2. Hirata Collection A.T. & Gorgeous Matsuno Extracurricular Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Hirata Collection A.T. Vs Danshoku Dino, Antonio Honda & Ken Ohka

5. DDT Extreme Title – Ladder Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Joey Ryan
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii
*Keisuke Ishii will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

The key to the KO-D Openweight Title match will be whether or not Keisuke Ishii will be able to use the Final Cut. He’s been learning how to use the move by Kaz Hayashi for the last month but has not used it in any DDT matches since then. Ishii does not want his generation to be overtaken by Konosuke Takeshita’s generation and he thinks he is the last obstacle to prevent that from happening. Takeshita said that his success has not come from luck alone but he earned it with his power too.

Takeshita gave an update over the events that happened at the end of “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 4” in Osaka on Sunday. Naomi Yoshimura finally succeeded in embarrassing him by stealing his mother, Keiko Takeshita! He does not know if she returned home that night. All he got was a LINE message from her saying she was so excited by the crowd cheering her name that she couldn’t sleep. Amon Tsurumi joked that Ishii should steal Takeshita’s father as part of his own mind games.

Drastic measures are being taken to settle the score between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan. The two were both knocked out at the end of their Last Man Standing Double Title Match so no championship changes took place. Ryan has since lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title but he is still determined to beat Sasaki for the DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki decided the rematch at Korakuen Hall will be a Ladder Match! There is one slight problem. Normally in Ladder Matches the prize is hung high above the ring. DDT has yet to get permission from Korakuen Hall management to hang a cable from the ceiling to hold the title belt. Consultation is currently taking place between the two parties so there may not be any problems by the time the match takes place.

Ryan intends win the Extreme Title and bring it back with him to America just like he did with the Iron Man Title. Sasaki would prefer for Laura James to be the prize they have to grab instead of the Extreme Title belt. He thinks she weighs lighter than the belt so it should be possible. As part of his training for the match, Sasaki says he has been watching a porno called “Monster Cock” every day. During a photo shoot where Sasaki and Ryan posed with the ladder, Sasaki stuck his arm through the ladder and asked Ryan for a handshake. Ryan shook his hand but then tried to pull it onto his crotch. The ladder prevented Sasaki’s hand from reaching that far. Sasaki then grabbed the ladder and thrusted it at Ryan but it was blocked by his crotch. Ryan overpowered the ladder and threw Sasaki across the room in the process.

Tetsuya Endo has plans to open up a women’s fan club for Mad Paulie called the Paulie Joshi. This show is supposedly going to be the launch day of the club.

If T2Hide lose their match, both Hirata Collection A.T. and Gorgeous Matsuno will be deported from Japan.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~THE 4TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL ROUND~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima Vs Reika Saiki
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki
3. Fire Fighting Dollars Vs 30’s Underground Idol Final Battle!: Maki Ito Vs Azusa Takigawa
4. Dragon Bombers Vs NEO Biishiki-gun: Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone Vs Yukio Saint Laurent & Martha (w/ Saki-nami)
5. Beer Garden Special 6-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Nonoko & Yuna Manase Vs Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The Tokyo Princess Cup final four are Syoko Nakajima, Reika Saiki, Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki. Nakajima is the only one of the four to have reached the semi-finals in previous tournaments. Her next opponent Saiki is looking to avenge her loss to her from last month. Mizuki is the wild card of the tournament. She’s been undefeated in singles matches since her arrival in Toyko Joshi Pro in April. Sakazaki isn’t worried though. Her confidence is through the roof and she is spending her time wondering how to play with her cute new opponent.

Saki-nami is back in Tokyo Joshi thanks to her new mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent. However Saki is not back in ring shape yet after her recovery from illness so Yukio-san will take her place in the ring for NEO Biishiki-gun’s return match. Rika Tatsumi is angry that the unit was allowed back in to Tokyo Joshi after they were forced to split up. Tetsuya Koda explained to her that SIN Biishiki-gun is gone but NEO Biishiki-gun is a brand new unit. Martha the maid has been proven to be a young girl so she’s okay to wrestle. Yukio-san is being allowed to wrestle because Tatsumi wants to beat him up.

Maho Kurone is already fighting off challengers for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Yuka Sakazaki tried to pin her during the press conference but Kurone escaped with the belt. Whenever Kurone is not in public she swallows the belt and stores it in her stomach for safety. See, being a zombie has its perks.

8. Triple Crown Giant Vs DNA-gun ~ Super Heavy Special Single Match: Shuji Ishikawa defeated Kazusada Higuchi with the Splash Mountain (13:37).
9. Osaka Wrestling School Vs Kishiwada Gurentai – Challenge to Yukinobu ~ Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie defeated “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo when Takeshita pinned Buffalo with the Cross-Arm German Suplex (25:22).

DDT’s tribute to Osaka wrestling was headlined by their two top wrestlers from the region taking on two legendary figures. When Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie got a match against Magnitude Kishiwada and Buffalo they wanted them in their original Osaka Pro forms, “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo. They got their wish and their opponents made it clear they weren’t going to play nice. MA-G-MA & Buffalo attacked the DDT team the moment the bell rang. MA-G-MA put Takeshita through a table outside the ring with a Diving Body Press. However the tables turned when MA-G-MA accidentally Clotheslined Buffalo. Irie flattened Buffalo with a Running Cannonball into the corner. MA-G-MA did what he could to save Buffalo but soon ran out of chances. Takeshita then hit the Cross-Arm German Suplex to seal the victory.

Before the Osaka team left, MA-G-MA appealed to Takeshita for a singles match some day down the line. Takeshita and Irie showed admiration for their opponents and said it is now their own era of pro wrestling. When Takeshita was finished, Naomi Yoshimura came down to the ring to grab his attention. He said Takeshita forgot about someone. Yoshimura then went back to the entrance and brought out Takeshita’s mother, Keiko Takeshita! Yoshimura said he was stealing Keiko so her son won’t be able to eat any meals when he comes home. Keiko didn’t seem to mind because she was busy waving to the audience as they were chanting her name. Takeshita was annoyed but he can still protect his KO-D Openweight Title so please continue to support him. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi closed out the show by singing “A Woman Born Is Osaka”.

Big men doing big moves was the theme of the other main event. Kazusada Higuchi stepped up to Shuji Ishikawa and wasn’t intimidated by the Triple Crown Champion. Back Drops, Lariats and even the Doctor Bomb could not win the match for Higuchi. Instead Ishikawa cut him off with a Knee Lift, a Sliding D, the Fire Thunder and then the Splash Mountain to finish it.

Dick Togo and Mad Paulie continued to fight each other at the end of the Wrestling Hunters Vs DAMNATION match. The rest of DAMNATION had to pull Paulie away from Togo. Save that energy for the Paulie Joshi, buddy.

Antonio Honda had the opportunity to join in with Kikutaro and Kuishinbo Kamen’s famous wrestling exchanges but was struck with anxiety. He was up all of last night thinking of “Gon, The Little Fox” as usual. This annoyed his opponents so they decided to fight Honda two on one with some nonsense along the way. Kikutaro tired himself out and Honda easily submitted him with a Crab Hold to win. Honda thanked both of his opponents for the match. Kikutaro said he would like to do it again whenever the cost of his flights from and to Nevada are cheap.

In a moment of true villainy, Super Sasadango Machine rummaged through Yuni’s carry case before their trios match. Inside he found the kid’s fidget spinner and he stole it! Sasadango taunted Yuni by playing with the spinner in the ring then challenged him to take it back with his strength. To make it worse, Sasadango then stuffed the spinner down the front of Danshoku Dino’s tights. Yuni got help from Makoto Oishi and Jun Kasai to beat Dino, Sasadango & Atsushi Maruyama. Oishi gave Sasadango a Stunner, Kasai then hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Yuni got the pin with the Sky Twister Press from the 2nd turnbuckle. After the match Kasai reached into Dino’s tights, pulled out the spinner and gave it back to Yuni.

There was a problem about the Battle Royal that needed to be solved. The original plan was for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Championship to be defended in the match but the current champion Maho Kurone was nowhere to be found. Yukinori Matsui told Amon Tsurumi that there needed to be a prize to motivate the contestants. Tsurumi thought about it and came up with an idea. He took off his afro and handed it over to Matsui. You see, the afro represents the power held by the DDT General Manager. Tsurumi announced that the winner will become the GM for one day. This will allow the winner to make any match or personal request that they desire. Saki Akai won the Battle Royal without eliminating anybody. She was tied up into a ball by Hirata Collection A.T. and left alone afterwards. Hirata and Joey Ryan were the last wrestlers left fighting and they eliminated each other so Akai was declared the winner. After Tsurumi freed her, he gave her the afro and asked her not to throw it away because she will have to wear it on the day she becomes the GM.

Shunma Katsumata & MAO recorded a message for the DDT fans while they were away competing in the NOAH Jr. Tag League. Unfortunately the audio was indecipherable because there was a strong wind while they were recording outdoors.


DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2017 ~EARLY SUMMER~” Results

July 15, 2017

DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2017 ~EARLY SUMMER~”, 15/07/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall
246 Fans – No Vacancy

Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Maho Kurone defeated Joey Ryan (c) with a School Boy (5:40 pm).
*Maho Kurone becomes the 1,260th(?) champion.
1. Match To Verify If Hira-Colle is Hirata Or Hirata: Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi defeated Hirata Collection A.T. & Gorgeous Matsuno when Owashi pinned Hirata with La Magistral Cradle (7:33).
2. KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Shigehiro Irie & Rekka when KUDO pinned Rekka with the Diving Double Knee Drop (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan when Akito submitted Ryan with the Scorpion Lock (11:00).
4. HARASHIMA & Mizuki Watase defeated Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (11:38).
5. Crazy Gold Wolf Vs Gon, The Little Fox: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Antonio Honda with the Right Knee Of God (7:56).
6. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Paulie pinned Iwasaki with the Reverse Splash (11:14).
7. ‘Hama Special Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii & Mike Bailey defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Diego when Bailey pinned Diego with the Ultima Weapon (16:50).

Keisuke Ishii continues to build momentum against Konosuke Takeshita and he’s doing it without the need for the Final Cut yet. Ishii gave Takeshita the Double Arm DDT on the floor outside the ring while Mike Bailey pinned Diego with the Ultima Weapon. Afterwards Ishii described Takeshita as a wonderful champion. But Ishii needs the KO-D Openweight Title to give the second half of his 2017 meaning.

Tetsua Endo mocked Kazusada Higuchi’s body after DAMNATION won their tag match. Endo said Higuchi has the body of a former sumo wrestler and he should be more like Mad Paulie if he wants to be strong. Paulie eats ramen three times a day to get his stoic body. Endo then announced on 23rd July he will help Paulie establish the Paulie Joshi club. It’s like Sumo Joshi clubs where women love sumo but this one is for women who love Paulie. It is Endo’s dream to buy an uninhabited island for Paulie and the Paulie Joshi to live in paradise. He may even use his King Of DDT winnings to pay for it.

Yukio Sakaguchi did everything he could to physically stop Antonio Honda from reciting “Gon, The Little Fox”. Every time Honda began to tell the tale, Sakaguchi kicked him. Honda agreed he would tell a different story instead like Snow White but it was obvious he was still trying to do “Gon, The Little Fox”. Sakaguchi ended up winning the match. He said it was fun, it’s just that he is tired of Honda telling the same story over and over. He already told it three times today!

Mizuki Watase replaced Soma Takao in Match #4. Takao had to be taken off the show when he became ill with cellulitis. HARASHIMA was pleased with the results as he and Watase beat Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi. But with Sumo Hall on the horizon HARASHIMA is looking into what he can do on the show. He hasn’t given up on the possibility that he can still be in the main event somehow. He has two choices ahead of him. Do something for himself or do something for DDT. He has an idea to something for himself.

Joey Ryan went into the 3 Way Match without the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title because he lost it to Maho Kurone earlier in the show (more on that later). Akito won the match by submitting Joey but now had no prize to claim. Daisuke Sasaki gave Akito his DDT Extreme Title belt and left the ring, like he did the last time Akito won a match over him. Akito would have kept the belt but Nobuhiro Shimatani took it off him and ran backstage to give it back to Sasaki. Akito is now left wondering how the hell do championships work in this company? Once he figures it out, he’s hoping to enter Sumo Hall with a title over his shoulder.

The 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match was turned into a normal tag team bout when Gorgeous Matsuno asked to team with Hirata Collection A.T. Matsuno hadn’t wrestled in DDT since “JUDGEMENT 2017” in March and he grew tired of waiting for his next booking. Everyone wanted to know Hirata’s true identity. And I mean everyone because they all entered the ring to gang up and stomp on Hirata. After the match, Sanshiro Takagi came to a conclusion. Hirata Collection A.T. is… not Kazuki Hirata! Why? Because Hirata Collection A.T. cannot wrestle to save his life. Matsuno didn’t care about this nonsense. He wanted to know when DDT will book him again. Takagi asked the audience if they wanted to see Matsuno again. They cheered. Takagi then announced that at Korakuen Hall on 23rd July, Hirata Collection A.T. will have to win his match or else he will be deported! Also Matsuno won’t be on the show. Danshoku Dino convinced Takagi to change his mind and add Matsuno to Hirata’s match. Now if Hirata’s team loses then both Hirata and Matsuno will be deported out of Japan!

Before the first match began, Joey Ryan wanted to send a message to Daisuke Sasaki so he went to the ring and had Antonio Honda translate for him. Joey mentioned he was attacked by a zombie girl at Tokyo Joshi Pro earlier in the day but this is a DDT show so he isn’t worried about bumping into her again. As he was saying this, Maho Kurone snuck into the ring with a severed arm and a referee. She tapped Joey’s shoulder with the arm to get his attention. When Joey turned around he tried to defend himself by grabbing the severed arm and making it grab his crotch. However Kurone let go of the arm and pinned Joey with a School Boy to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title! Joey ran off with the severed hand still grabbing his crotch while Honda finished up the opening call.

Takeshita opened the show by promoting the upcoming “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2017” but he was interrupted by Naomi Yoshimura as usual. Yoshimura claimed he had stolen Takaeshita’s power blocks and this time he got the correct ones. He brought them out and to Takeshita’s surprise they really were his blocks. Amon Tsurumi asked Yoshimura when he will finally use his Right To Challenge Contract to cash for the KO-D Title shot. Yoshimura said he wants to do it in a venue that can fill 10,000 people where he can humiliate Takeshita the most, so Sumo Hall on 20th August. Tsurumi had some bad news for Yoshimura. The Right To Challenge contract will expire after the Beer Garden series finale on 5th August. That’s before Sumo Hall! Yoshimura was taken aback but then acted like he knew that all along. He’ll cash in on 3rd August or 5th August or whatever date Tsurumi said it expires. Yoshimura was in such a hurry to leave ringside that he left behind Takeshita’s power blocks for Takeshita to take back.
