6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Antonio Honda when he stripped off Honda’s bra (13:42).
*V3 for HARASHIMA.

Maybe it was skill or maybe it was blind luck but HARASHIMA defeated Antonio Honda in the Blindfold & Bra Match. At one point Honda rolled out of the ring and HARASHIMA tried to chase after him. Honda pulled the shirts off of Yuki Iino and Nobuhiro Shimatani when they stood too close to him. They were both wearing bras underneath even though it wasn’t mandatory for them to do so. Back in the ring Honda applied an Octopus Hold to HARASHIMA and succeeded in unhooking his bra. HARASHIMA defended himself well so Honda rolled him into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch. That was a grave mistake because the positioning allowed HARASHIMA to unhook Honda’s bra and strip it right off him by kicking out of the hold, resulting in a victory for HARASHIMA! After the match he said he hasn’t decided on the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. For now his focus is on winning the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie on 22nd July!

Another good effort from Kota Umeda that just wasn’t enough in his latest match of the Mad Dog Trials. Dick Togo’s ring awareness allowed him to trap Umeda in the Cross Facelock several times. The one that made Umeda finally tap out was transitioned into a modified version of the move that looks similar to the Dick Killer. Togo thinks Umeda can still grow into becoming the so called “Mad Dog” that he claims to be but for now he is still in the stage where he should be establishing a style for himself. His advice to Umeda is to wrestle more and more because pro wrestling is more than a career, it’s an experience.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was up for grabs in a 10 minute long Battle Royal. The champion KUDO had Masahiro Takanashi fighting by his side against the rest of the field but the chaos was too much to handle. Nobuhiro Shimatani found his moment to strike and he pinned KUDO with a School Boy to win the title. Everyone ganged up on him until Saori Anou found her spot to win the belt with a Fisherman Suplex. KUDO had a change of heart and decided to protect Anou by fending off those who attacked her including including his friends Takanashi and Saki Akai. Anou didn’t appreciate KUDO’s aid and she kicked him out of the ring. She got into a back and forth with Akai until Akai pinned her with a Diving Cross Body. Shimatani got the title back with a Small Package with two minutes left to go. Konosuke Takeshita made his presence felt by giving Shimatani a Brainbuster onto the title belt. Takeshita got the pin and stayed as champion for the final minute of the match.

The Battle Royal was over but there were still people who wanted the Iron Man Title. Yuki Iino tried to pin Takeshita with a School Boy outside the ring but he kicked out. Danshoku Dieno then ran out and gave Takeshita the Lip Lock in the ring. He went for the pin but Sanshiro Takagi suddenly broke it up by throwing a chair at Dieno! Takagi invited this week’s special guest Akari Suda from SKE48 down to the ring so she can become the champion! Yukinori Matsui was against the idea but immediately changed his mind when Suda shook his hand. Takagi gave Takeshita a Stunner then Suda locked him into the Ocotpus Hold, the dreaded finishing move of World Idol Pro Wrestling star Octopus Suda! Takeshita clearly did not give up but Matsui ruled he was knocked out and rewarded the Iron Man Title to Suda! Takagi warned Suda that she may be attacked by people who want the championship at any time. Suda asked Takagi if he can protect her if that is the case.

The 3 Way Trios match wasn’t held under Hardcore rules but MAO still used a plastic toy hammer on some of his opponents during the match. Sammy Guevara and Facade ran circles around the rest of the participants and floored them all with dives out of the ring. Guevara then finished off Daiki Shimomura with the 630 Splash to give Irie-gun the victory. Tetsuya Endo wants MAO to know that their KO-D Tag Team Titles match on 22nd July won’t be a Hardcore match so he better leave the weapons at home. Mad Paulie stole some pictures of Facade from the merch stand. Endo scolded Paulie until he found a picture of Saori Anou among them.

The BIG LOVE between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka is strong for the most part. Well there was that moment when Sasaki accidentally hit Asuka with a Clothesline but that honestly was an accident. Asuka recovered and countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstasy into a Choke Slam of her own. She then pinned Oishi with the Moonsault. Sasaki begged Asuka to forgive him after the match. What he did was the biggest tragedy of this century and he promised to never do it again. Asuka said “BIG LOVE!” to Sasaki and they hugged. When asked about their upcoming singles match against each other at Korakuen Hall, Sasaki told everyone to look forward to it because they will show love to each other in the ring.

With the future of DNA up in the air, the Naomi Kingdom are looking to the future and it involves finishing off their rivals on the final show. Keisuke Okuda doesn’t care where they end up because he isn’t afraid of anything. If all of the juniors below him have fear then they should stop wrestling. Naomi Yoshimura wants to take down Yuki Ueno once and for all before DNA is done. After that he will be free to do what he wants whether it is in DDT, DNA or anywhere else in the company.

Akito’s submission skills got him out of a jam. He reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock from Yuki Ueno to grab the victory.

Danshoku Dieno didn’t let his one show suspension from the main Maji Manji card let him down. He came out for his dark match with cans of beer ready to get the crowd fired up! He was also drinking to promote the Beer Garden shows taking place in August. He invited Rekka to join in the fun and they both wrestled while drinking. It got a bit out of control when they spat beer with each other and used the beer cans as weapons.

Irie-gun Grows, Sasaki Has Big Love For Asuka, Campsite Pro Wrestling Is Back

July 6, 2018

DDT “MASAHIRO TAKANASHI DEBUT 15th ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL ~IN THE WORLD THERE IS NO STOREHOUSE~”, 08/07/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

6. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Isami Kodaka

Irie-gun is really taking on an international flavour. Indian wrestler Baliyan Akki (sorry for getting his name wrong all this time) who has been competing in DNA and Ganbare☆Wrestling this year is the latest addition to the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito
0. NO TV Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Rekka
1. Daisuke Sasaki & Asuka Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara & Facade Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Keisuke Ishhi, MAO & Daiki Shimomura
3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: KUDO (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Toru Owashi Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Saori Anou
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The main event will be light hearted but both HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will take it seriously. There’s a championship and a Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line after all.

Kota Umeda is currently 0-3 in his trial series but the wealth of talent and experience on offer is making this a worthwhile project for the youngster. Dick Togo is next up on his list.

This week’s episode saw the surprise first appearance of the “Neon Ninja” Facade, walking down to the ring as part of Irie-gun. The guy is a high risk taker and adds another dangerous element to Shigehiro Irie’s growing faction.

A change in attitude is afoot in DAMNATION and it is all because Daisuke Sasaki has fallen in love. He and Asuka originally hit it off at the Toshimaen Street Wrestling show back in May and when they got to team up again this week, Sasaki did everything he could to protect Asuka during the match. Sasaki says DAMNATION now stands for “Big Love” and he is eager to team up with Asuka again. While Asuka is calling herself the “DAMNATION Diva” there hasn’t been any official decision made in the group yet to induct her as the newest member. She’s at least in a better position in connection to the group than Nobuhiro Shimatani so far.

Danshoku Dieno is serving a one show suspension from the “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” broadcast after he was sent off during the World Cup Rules match this week. He is relegated to the dark match because of this.

DDT “DRAMATIC MOOD SEIJO↑↑ 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara Vs HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno
7. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO

Another city vs city grudge has popped up in DDT with Tetsuya Endo and MAO both fighting for their hometowns. Seijo Hall plays the neutral ground for those two to solve their differences.

DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga

I think Shunma Katsumata should have been in this match teaming with Akito. Then I remember Katsumata only has a low tier membership with his local Gold’s Gym so he probably doesn’t see the point in travelling over to the grand opening of a new branch.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. Shinsyu Pro Wrestling Offer Match: X Vs X
2. Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi Vs Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda

4. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons have stopped the gimmick and will return to normal. That means Kazuki Hirata is back in the spots where Hiratimo Dragon was previously advertised in.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Daisuke Sasaki’s love for Asuka has led to a singles match between the two. Except maybe Sasaki doesn’t think it’s a wrestling match. Whatever it is, he’s organising something for Asuka and so far she’s going along with it.

Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa will be in attendance so he can kick Ken Ohka’s ass. This is not supposed to be a wrestling match, it is literally going to be Nasukawa kicking Ohka up the ass.

For almost 30 minutes both Konosuke Takeshita and Antonio Honda fought their hearts out in front of the Osaka crowd. The main event was a Happy Motels reunion with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Yasu Urano accompanying Honda to the ring while Takeshita came out to the Happy Motels entrance theme. Honda acted sentimental when he did his “Gon, The Little Fox” spot, telling Takeshita and the others that if this becomes his last match he does not want it to end. Honda then poked Takeshita in the eyes and hit a Topé Suicida after Takeshita rolled out of the ring to recover. Honda threw many punches and Bionic Elbows to combat against Takeshita’s Lariats. When Takeshita countered a Sleeper Hold into a Blue Thunder Bomb 25 minutes in the match it was clear that both were tired. They narrowly avoided a double countout and continued hitting their big moves until the match devolved into duelling Bionic Elbows. The ended in another double knockdown with Yukinori Matsui beginning to count both of them out again. Takeshita made it to his feet in time but Honda couldn’t. That was enough for Matsui to end the match and declare Takeshita the winner by KO. After the match Takeshita talked about going to see his brother’s high school soccer game earlier in the day. It made him think about his own high school days and he realised he spent all of his time outside of school with wrestlers like Honda, Urano and Hiroshi. That time of his life was a happy won because he was wrestling in Happy Motels. There was only one thing about it he didn’t like and that was never getting the chance to wrestle a meaningful match with Honda. He got that today. Honda thanked Takeshita for the match and said he was glad to wrestle him for 30 minutes today.

Shigehiro Irie Vs Magnitude Kishiwada immediately started with a ringside brawl. Kishiwada attacked Irie with a chair, targeting Irie’s arms whenever he could. Kishiwada continued the heavy attacks by doing the Last Ride and the Diving Body Press plus more chairshots. Irie fought back with a Death Valley Bomb as well as Beast Bombers to counter Kishiwada’s Lariats. The Beast Bombers as well as the Cannonball Drop wore down Kishiwada until one more Beast Bomber kept him down for the three count. After the match Irie said he wanted to become a pro wrestler after watching figures like Kishiwada and Kengo Takai compete all over Osaka. Irie not only achieved his dream but he is also now the KO-D Openweight Champion. However, Irie is still not satisfied. There are still many things he must learn to become stronger and stronger. Irie asked Kishiwada to plese fight him again some day. Kishiwada told him they had a good match today and he shook his hand. He then told Irie to defend the KO-D Title many times so he can become Osaka’s strongest wrestler!

Kikutaro, Kuishinbo Kamen and Super Sasadango Machine all found ways to get Matsui involved in their match. Sasadango had Kamen pinned after a Diving Knee Drop but Kikutaro grabbed Sasadango’s leg and applied a Crab Hold to make him submit.

Naomi Yoshimura said he experienced a similar feeling from wrestling Dick Togo to the one he got when he wrestled Akebono.

The usual unmasking tricks by Hiratimo Dragon made Yuni cry when he was disqualified for it. Makoto Oishi tried to cheer him up but it was a trap! Yuni caught him in a Small Package and pinned him to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Later at the end of the show Saki Akai encouraged Yuni to join her in the ring to say goodbye to the fans. That too was a trap for Akai to win the belt from Yuni. Oishi came back out, pinned Akai to take back the title and ran off. The show then closed with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi singing to the audience.

Turns out Akito’s recovery time was a short one. He was back in action competing in the opener and even got the winning pinfall. He made fun of Shunma Katsumata for only signing up for the standard membership at Gold’s Gym instead of the Master membership. While Katsumata is preparing to go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles, Akito personally wants to challenge for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

Matsui wanted to give out the opening announcements but Hisaya Imabayashi wouldn’t let him. Yuki Iino was ordered to hold Matsui back in the corner while Imabayashi finished the segment.

DAMNATION got to take over Korakuen Hall as their prize for winning the Dramatic General Election earlier this year. In the main event Daisuke Sasaki put his DDT Extreme Title on the line against Yuko Miyamoto in a 2 out of 3 falls Hardcore Match. In Fall #1, Sasaki submitted Miyamoto with La Mistica Cross Facelock after doing an Avalanche Power Bomb onto chairs. In Fall #2, Sasaki went high risk with a Diving Elbow onto a ladder. But Miyamoto moved out of the way and used several pinning moves on Sasaki until a Backslide got him the 3 count. Both men went all out in the final fall but Sasaki had a dirty trick up his sleeve. He invited Suguru Miyatake into the ring to hit Miyamoto with a guitar. Miyatake missed and hit Sasaki by accident instead! Despite that, Sasaki kicked out of the pin when Miyamoto hit the Fire Thunder through a table followed by the Moonsault. He hit back with the Pedigree onto chairs and a Diving Elbow but Miyamoto kicked out of that too. Miyamoto kicked out of the flash Hurricanrana and dropped Sasaki with a Tombstone. That seemed to take all that was left away from Sasaki because he could not counter the Springboard Overhead Kick or the Fire Thunder afterwards. One more Moonsault from Miyamoto sealed the deal and we now have a new Extreme Champion! Miyamoto told “Dai-chan” after the match that it was fun but he now proved he was the most Extreme wrestler. What’s extreme to other people is normal to him. He has plenty of Extreme left in him for DDT.

When he left the other DAMNATION wrestlers checked on Sasaki. Tetsuya Endo said that in a short period of time, Sasaki lost the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title and the DDT Extreme Title. He also failed to win the KO-D Tag Team Title. What if Sasaki no longer deserves to be called Charisma? Sasaki agreed. Shuji Ishikawa tried to cheer Sasaki up by telling him to continue working hard. He then sang the SMAP song “The Only Flower In The World”. Sasaki told him to stop. He lost everything going into 2018 but he is still Charisma! In fact, in 2018 Sasaki will become a brand new Charisma!

One week before the D-King Grand Prix begins and Tetsuya Endo is already making a statement by beating Konosuke Takeshita! The result happened when Takeshita’s partner Masato Tanaka went for the Sliding D on Endo as the target. Endo moved out of the way and Takeshita took the blow instead. Masashi Takeda got rid of Tanaka and Endo hit the Shooting Star Press for the three count. Takeshita and Endo will face off one on one in the Grand Prix on 7th January. Endo gained a lot of confidence with this result. He also hopes to wrestle Tanaka one on one someday.

The Violent Giants Vs Brahman Brothers match was interrupted by Dick Togo being chased into the ring by Colt Cabana. Togo was the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion at the time. He crawled underneath Suwama when Suwama was about to give one of the Brahmans the Last Ride. But Cabana caught up to Togo and pinned him to become the new champion. Back to the match and the Brahmans pulled out their usual tricks like Brahman Shu spitting black ink into Suwama’s face. Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama fired back with a Sandwich Lariat. Suwama then grabbed the bottle of black ink and spat it back at the Brahmans. He then pinned Brahman Kei with the Last Ride.

Mad Paulie’s two partners for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match were Ryota Hama & Nobuhiro Shimatani both wearing Paulie facepaint. They came close to winning but Paulie & Hama were wiped out with dives. Yukio Sakaguchi then kicked lumps out of Shimatani until he got the three count. Masahiro Takanashi said that the original Paulie and the chubby Paulie were a strong team but the third Paulie was stupid.

Dick Togo’s mystery partner was his student Diego… No wait, it was Guanchulo! Meanwhile Colt Cabana wore identical gear to Antonio Honda. Honda stopped the match so he could talk about Star Wars, specifically Chewbacca. Togo assisted Guanchulo with a Sunset Flip to win the match then Togo rolled up Guanchulo to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Togo was chased out of the ring by the other wrestlers afterwards.

Everybody in the Battle Royal wrestled in another wrestler’s costume. Yuki Ueno was dressed as Soma Takao. Man Man Kai Kind was dressed as Yuki Ueno. Soma Takao was dressed as Man Man Kai Kind. Saki Akai was dressed as Ken Ohka. HARASHIMA was dressed as Gota Ihashi. Ken Ohka was dressed as HARASHIMA. Takayuki Ueki was dressed as Saki Akai. Ryuichi Sekine was dressed as Stone Cold Steve Austin. Ueki still acted as himself and pulled out a gun to intimidate HARASHIMA. However Ueki then slipped off the top rope and crotched himself, leading to HARASHIMA to win the match with the Somato.

Suguru Miyatake sang a song called “Golden Lion” to the audience before the show began. He couldn’t remember the words so he had the lyric sheet taped to the back of his guitar.

7. ALL OUT Vs Shuten-dōji!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi when Akito pinned Takanashi with the Hanamasa (13:05).

There are only a few more shows left for the entire ALL OUT unit to be together. Their goal is to keep the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles until Diego leaves Japan. Their defence against Shuten-dōji in Hakata next week is their last threat to their plan.

Daisuke Sasaki wanted TAKA Michinoku’s attention so he got it. Michinoku countered Sasaki’s Hurricanrana into the Just Facelock to make him tap out. Afterwards Sasaki called to him saying he is the one he wants. Sasaki wants to give TAKA an Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match. TAKA accepted but since he just beat Sasaki that should mean he picks the date and the place. It will take place at the K-DOJO Shin-Kiba 1st RING show on 17th December. Sasaki gladly agreed. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to point out that Ken Ohka is supposed to get the next title shot on 20th December but nobody cared. TAKA said his match was made first and he won’t hear otherwise. In the backstage interview Sasaki said how much he respects TAKA and talked about the previous times they wrestled together from the Italian Four Horsemen to the Best Of The Super Juniors. Sasaki hopes beating TAKA Michinoku will send him on track towards the WWE. Reaching America is the final life goal for Daisuke Sasaki.

Diego was so happy to have a match with Dick Togo today and called it the most important match in his pro wrestling life. He thanked Togo because his life has changed so much since they first met each other five years ago. Togo said back then Diego was a wrestling otaku but today he has become a fine wrestler. Togo wants Diego to take all that he has learned in Japan and teach it to his friends and juniors in Chile. Diego can changes their lives just as Togo changed his.

Keisuke Okuda got into a fight with both Shigehiro Irie and Kazusada Higuchi after their match.

Kazuki Hirata had Sanshiro Takagi and Toru Owashi as his cornermen for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match. However Takagi & Owashi wanted Miyu Yamashita to win so they helped her out at certain times like pushing the rope towards her when she was put in a submission hold. Yamashita herself started to gain control of the match and had Hirata in position to take the Crash Rabbit Heat. Knowing he was about to be defeated, Hirata called for Nobuhiro Shimatani to come down and hand him something. It was a letter Hirata had written and he wanted to read it before he lost. In the letter Hirata confessed that he is dying. He wanted to tell Yamashita something before he passes. He remembered helping to set up the first ever Toyko Joshi Pro show. At the time he didn’t see what the big deal was about the project and was in a rotten mood having to spend his day working at the event. That all changed when he saw Miyu Yamashita’s debut match where she danced during her entrance. Hirata had one request and that is to dance with Yamashita to her “Genghis Khan” theme tune. Yamashita agreed and they danced together. Hirata afterwards asked for a handshake but it was a trick and he struck Yamashita. She got so mad she kicked the hell out of Hirata and then pinned him with the Crash Rabbit Heat to defend the Iron Man Title. After the match Takagi gave Yamashita the Stunner but she kicked out. Owashi gave her La Magistral Cradle but she kicked out again. Takagi challenged Yamashita to defend the title on 24th December. The Tokyo Joshi GM Tetsuya Koda came out and told Takagi that Yamashita should be preparing for her Korakuen Hall main event match on 4th January. She cannot risk getting injured by wrestling men. Takagi pointed out that she can still wrestle other women so he will contact his relative Francoise☆Takagi, Owashi’s relative Margaret☆Owashi and Hirata’s relative Kazuko Hirata to come over. Tokyo Joshi will soon compete against T2Joshi! Yamashita accepted the challenge.

Kouki Iwasaki showed shades of envy towards Yuki Ueno when Ueno was introduced as a Differ Cup winner. He attacked Ueno and threw a table at him away from ringside. Ueno fought back and set Iwasaki up to be pinned by Kota Umeda. He hit a Missile Dropkick then Umeda did the Umeda Driver.

Danshoku Dino, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda formed the HωA (Homo Wrestling Idol) to take on the NωA. They wore modified NωA shirts and also sang “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” which made all of NωA mad. NωA got their revenge by forcing Dino to do the Danshoku Nightmare VR to Owashi. They then gave Honda the Triple Miracle Ecstasy to win the match.
