2. Crazy Gold Wolf And Gay And Dancer Slightly Special 3 Way Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Danshoku Dino and Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (9:11).

4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda defeated Shunma Katsumata & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Shimtani with a Lariat (9:34).
5. Adios Diego Tres! Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Diego with the German Suplex (13:39).
6. Road To D-King GP Special Single Match: Akito defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Hanamasa (8:42).
7. Nagoya Specialty! Stir-fried Miso Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Antonio Honda when Endo pinned Honda with the Shooting Star Press (14:20).

Tetsuya Endo saved Daisuke Sasaki from the Somato by giving HARASHIMA a Shiranui. From there, Endo defeated Antonio Honda with a Springboard Overhead Kick and the Shooting Star Press. After the match Endo & Mad Paulie rushed over to Sasaki fearing the worst. Sasaki weakly said he was feeling cold but before he goes, he has a secret to tell. Sasaki then jumped up and said HARASHIMA isn’t the only wrestler who trains hard. Also Naomichi Marufuji isn’t the only wrestling genius either. DAMNATION will beat them on Christmas Eve to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles and will celebrate with a Christmas party!

Both Akito and Keisuke Ishii are confident of their chances in the upcoming D-King Grand Prix. Akito beat Ishii today but Ishii still thinks he has momentum going into his block and likes his chances of making the final. Akito is looking forward to a variety of opponents. A rematch with Sasaki will trigger bad memories of Akito losing his hair while a match with Shuji Ishikawa will be focused on targeting his legs and feet. Akito also thinks Mike Bailey is not paying much attention to him so that is a first time singles match to look forward to.

Konosuke Takeshita was glad to have a singles match with Diego before Diego left Japan. He hopes Diego becomes a big wrestler in Chile someday and then come back to Japan. It doesn’t matter how long it will take, even if Diego gets old enough to become a grandpa. Grandpa Takeshita will still be the KO-D Openweight Champion by then so he can give Grandpa Diego a title match.

6. DNA Vs Yoshimura-gun: Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Naomi Yoshimura & Akira Jo by Disqualification when Yoshimura assaulted the referee (8:51).
6a. Emergency Decision Match: Kota Umeda, Kouki Iwasaki & MAO defeated Naomi Yoshimura, Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo when Umeda pinned Jo with the Umeda Driver (8:51).

Yoshimura-gun caused some chaos in the main event. First they ambushed Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki then Naomi Yoshimura attacked the referee when the DNA team were making their comeback. By the time Yoshimura threw a chair at them his team was disqualified. Yoshimura got mad at the decision and gave Yukinori Matsui a Lariat in response. Yoshimura got on the microphone and said he doesn’t care about weak people. He was suddenly interrupted by a Dropkick from MAO. MAO grabbed the mic and asked if Yoshimura knows anything about pro wrestling? You win by pinfall or submission to settle your grudges. What kind of main event is Yoshimura having while everyone else in DNA is working hard? A bad finish like they just had only makes fans want to go home. MAO then challenged Yoshimura-gun to an impromptu 6-Man Tag Match. It was accepted and the chaos restarted. Yoshimura tried to bring a chair back in but Mizuki Watase grabbed it off him. The distraction helped MAO dive onto Yoshimura afterwards. Umeda & Iwasaki then double teamed Akira Jo until Umeda pinned him with the Umeda Driver. There was still some fighting after the match ended. When everything calmed down Umeda told Yoshimura he embarrassed himself for losing twice in one day. Yoshimura’s excuse was the match became 4 Vs 3 so it wasn’t fair. Umeda told him to bring Kengo next time so they can go 4 Vs 4.

For his last match in DNA, Diego took on his Amigo Shunma Katsumata. They were all smiles at the start until the match heated up and Katsumata encouraged Diego to fight harder. Diego countered the Casadora into a Foot Stomp and pinned Katsumata with the V.H.S to win a spirited match. The two were friendly with each other afterwards with Diego making sure his friend was ok. In DDT they were in separate units but they still sat together on the bus trips to shows and hung out together away from wrestling. They cried while saying they love each other. Katsumata also promised to visit Chile next time they see each other.

Keisuke Okuda beat Mizuki Watase but it wasn’t a walkover at all. Watase put all he had into his Dropkicks and Back Drops to the point where Okuda his the STO but was too beaten up to go for the pin. The two got into an Elbow Strike battle as they both stood up. Okuda gave Watase another STO then locked in a tight Sleeper Hold. Watase wouldn’t give up and eventually fainted so the match had to be stopped in favour of Okuda.

It turns out the retiring Dai Suzuki was more liked by the DNA roster than he thought. At the start of the show former DNA wrestler Ryota Nakatsu appeared asking to be Suzuki’s final opponent instead of Ken Ohka. He was told that the match had already been booked for a month so why didn’t he say anything sooner? While Ohka and Nakatsu argued, Kota Umeda entered the ring also asking to be Suzuki’s last opponent. Suzuki was so touched by the situation that he couldn’t decide who to wrestle. Ohka suggested Suzuki to do three matches for his retirement today, one against each of them. Suzuki agreed with the idea. The matches went ahead later in the shot and Suzuki lost all three of them. Nakatsu used an Arm Capture Half Crab Hold called the Crescent Moon to win the first bout, Umeda won the second with a Penalty Kick and Ohka won the finale with the Fire Spear. Suzuki was worn out by the end of the series but he still fought as hard as he could. Afterwards Ohka said that at 40 years old he himself will never retire until he accomplishes his task as a pro wrestler. For as long as he knew, wrestlers never retired under their own circumstances, instead they would leave without permission and escape from the dojo. However when he learned that Suzuki is retiring from wrestling so he can work in welfare, he now wants nothing more than for Suzuki to work hard at that job. Suzuki said he has ran away from many painful things in his life but he loves pro wrestling and feels like it saved him. He is proud of everyone he met through pro wrestling even though he himself was never a worthy wrestler. Suzuki thanked everyone and hopes to return his gratitude somehow with his future life.

Tomoya Hirata earned his first win since debuting as a wrestler last month. His tag partner Toru Sugiura described the FREEDOMS newcomer as a monster in the making. Both of them would like to wrestle in DNA more in the future to gain lots of experience. Nobuhiro Shimatani didn’t take the loss kindly because he submitted to someone who has only been wrestling for over a month. Daiki Shimomura is hoping to wrestle in another tag match next month but he doesn’t want Hirata to be involved.

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego (c) when Takanashi pinned Diego with the Takatonic (21:28).
*ALL OUT fail in V2. Shuten-dōji becomes the 32nd KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

Diego’s plan to keep defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles until he leaves Japan came to an end today. Shuten-dōji isolated him from the rest of ALL OUT, finishing him off with a combination of a Backspin Kick, the Right Knee Of God and the Takatonic. Masahiro Takanashi rubbed the victory in Diego’s face afterwards, telling him if Shuten-dōji fights ALL OUT in a future title match Diego won’t be there for it. Diego tearfully apologised to his partners for letting them down. He was still glad to wrestle in Hakata one more time before he goes home.

In the first preview of the D-King Grand Prix, HARASHIMA toppled Kazusada Higuchi. Although Higuchi lost, he said afterwards that the match made him remember everything about their previous matches together. He had forgotten how intense it is to wrestle HARASHIMA and all this loss did today was wake him up. He will knock down everyone in his group who stands in his way. HARASHIMA noted he has now wrestled and beaten Higuchi in three singles matches. While he was happy with today’s result he realises that his body may not hold up for the entire tournament if he has too many matches like that. He will have to think more about his upcoming match strategies from now on.

The 4 Way Match was changed in the last minute to become a Scramble Bunkhouse match with a barbed wire bat placed inside the ring. Sanshiro Takagi was placed onto a carriage and wheeled into a nearby stairway. MAO would have won the match when he hit the Cannonball 450 on Danshoku Dino but Daisuke Sasaki broke the pin with a chair assisted Diving Elbow Drop. Sasaki then used the barbed wire bat as part of the Cross Facelock to make MAO give up.

6. HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & TAKA Michinoku defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Michinoku submitted Sasaki with the Just Facelock (15:27).
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.

There is bitter sweet news coming from the Ganbare☆Wrestling roster. A rookie named Mao Hoshino is ready to have her debut wrestling match. Unfortunately it is also going to be her retirement match. Hoshino was born on 27th April, 1987. She is 164cm tall, weighs 65kg and her previous athletic history is in swimming. Hoshino participated in the same tryouts that Nanaka Kawamura graduated from earlier this year. She spent a year training in DDT’s wrestling classes and wanted to wrestle in Ganpuro after watching their shows. However her parents are fiercely against her decision to become a pro wrestler. After consulting with Ken Ohka, Hoshino agreed not to pursue a wrestling career but she will wrestle one match so all of her training will not be for nothing. Her trainer Cherry will be her opponent. Hoshino is frustrated by the situation and she wants to show all of her feelings in the ring.

DDT was in Ken Ohka’s hometown of Toyama and DAMNATION did not like it one bit. Daisuke Sasaki wanted to have another bet with Ohka in order to wrestle in the main event. Ohka said Sasaki had already taken his money and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He has nothing left. Sasaki saw that Ohka’s 70 year old father was in the audience and he demanded the father put his own deposit book on the line! Ohka accepted the challenge but his team was then ambushed by DAMNATION. Ohka, HARASHIMA & Soma Takao eventually isolated Mad Paulie in the ring and overwhelmed him with their signature moves until HARASHIMA got the pin with the Somato. HARASHIMA called Ohka the “Hero Of Toyama” after the match. Ohka then told his life story to the audience. He grew up as a bad child, kind of like Sasaki. When he lost the Independent Jr. Title to Sasaki he felt shame whenever he came back to Toyama. But not matter how embarrassed he gets, he has a dream and even at 40 years old he trusts himself to achieve it.

Masahiro Takanashi said that Shuten-dōji are not fighting ALL OUT to create happy memories for Diego before he leaves Japan. ALL OUT will be finished when Shuten-dōji wins the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from them.

Ken Ohka’s dad got involved in the opening match. Kazuki Hirata came out complaining that his entrance gown and HIRATA GO! glasses went missing. Ohka’s dad came out wearing them while dancing to Hirata’s music. Sanshiro Takagi said his dancing is better than Hirata’s.

6. DDT Extreme Title – No DQ Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) defeated Soma Takao by Referee Stoppage with the Crossover Facelock (18:24).

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when HARASHIMA pinned Akito with the Somato (24:01).
*V4 for HarashiMarufuji.

There were two stories to keep an eye on in the main event. One was the first meeting between Konosuke Takeshita and Naomichi Marufuji. But the other that led to the match result was HARASHIMA getting a measure of revenge on Akito after losing to him earlier this month. Takeshita and Marufuji took each other out of the match late. Takeshita hit the Knee Strike but Marufuji fired back with the Tiger King. Akito locked HARASHIMA in a European Clutch again but this time HARASHIMA kicked out. Akito kicked him afterwards but all it did was made HARASHIMA angry. In response HARASHIKA kicked Akito until Akito was knocked out. From there HARASHIMA hit the Somato and that was it. Marufuji praised the challengers afterwards for providing them with a highly tense match. He called Akito a wonderful wrestler and told Takeshita he would like to fight him again.

When ALL OUT left the ring, DAMNATION appeared to declare themselves as the next challengers for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Tetsuya Endo told the champions there are two geniuses in pro wrestling: himself and Daisuke Sasaki! HARASHIMA accepted the challenge and told Marufuji the next DDT show in Korakuen Hall is on Christmas Eve. It took some discussion for Marufuji to accept because he already has plans that day but he agreed to be there.

Chairs, steel basins and plastic boxes were all used in violent fashion during the No DQ Match. Soma Takao broke the plastic box over Sasaki’s head then hit a Diving Double Stomp while Sasaki was buried beneath a pile of chairs. Sasaki brought in handcuffs but he ended up wearing them instead. Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie eventually freed him but they took some chair shots from Takao during the process. Sasaki gave Takao the Vietnam Driver II onto the basin for a nearfall. Sasaki then locked in the Crossover Facelock until Takao lost consciousness. The referee called for the bell and rewarded the match to Sasaki. With this result Sasaki has now tied the record for most DDT Extreme Title defences in a single reign.

Dodgy translations aside, Mike Bailey had a clear plan put in place against Tetsuya Endo. Bailey thinks he is the calmer of the two so if he could make Endo mad, he can then use it to his advantage. Bailey intentionally left his guard open at the start by bowing to Endo. Endo didn’t fall for the trap. Instead he bowed back. Endo’s ability to match Bailey’s calmness with his own was the deciding factor. Bailey kicked out of the Tetsuya In The Sky and dodged away from the Shooting Star Press. But when it was his turn to fire back, Endo used Bailey’s momentum from the Green Tea Plunge to roll on top of him for the sudden three count. Whatever tension that existed between the two seems to have vanished after the match because they bowed to each other again. Bailey is taking the loss in his stride. He was hoping to win and go into his upcoming Impact X Division Title match against Taiji Ishimori at the Differ Cup with a lot of momentum. Instead he is going into the match as the clear underdog.

Super Sasadango Machine laid out his plans to beat the YaroZ in the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match. He singled out Shiro Koshinaka as the biggest threat on the challenger team. In order to beat YaroZ, the champions will have to destroy Koshinaka’s greatest weapon. His ass! So a special rule was put in place. If anybody laughs during the match, they must take a baseball bat swing to the ass. The goal is to make Koshinaka laugh. Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno and Daiki Shimomura appeared dressed in black bodysuits carrying bats to attack any wrestler who laughed. Some of the others had some surprises in store to make Koshinaka laugh. Sasadango swapped places and costumes with the referee, LiLiCo was very aggressive with her shouting and everyone piled onto Sanshiro Takagi to stop him from doing the Spiccoli Driver. Takagi collapsed with back pain so Antonio Honda called for a doctor. Ultraman Robin appeared wearing a medical coat and he helped bring Takagi back to the locker room. He was interrupted by Yuki Iino dressed as a nurse. Iino decided that Takagi needed mouth to mouth resuscitation. It worked, Takagi regained consciousness and yelled at Iino not to use his tongue. Back in the ring the batsmen continued to attacked those who laughed but everyone noticed there was now a fourth batsman. It was Shinjiro Otani! He even used his bat the same way he does his Facewash Kicks in the corner. Honda stopped the match so he could talk about Gon, The Little Fox but he mixed it up with Fist Of The North Star. This made Koshinaka smirk and that was enough for him to get attacked. However Koshinaka shrugged off the bat shots and attacked the batmen and the others with Hip Attacks. Honda held LiLiCo in place for Koshinaka to hit the Super Hip Attack but LiLiCo moved out of the way. Honda got hit instead and he was then hit by Ken Ohka’s Fire Spear. LiLiCo climbed on top of Honda for the three count and a first successful defence of the 10-Man Titles. In the post-match interview Sasadango opened up a challenge for any fivesome in Japan to come over and face them. Big Japan, K-DOJO, WRESTLE-1, even All Japan or NOAH. Come on over!

A wild mix of teams were put together into a 3 Way Trios match. Diego was put with NωA and he filmed their entrance on his phone. Shunma Katsumata & MAO wiped out most of the field with stereo Suicide Dives but Shuten-dōji got away from them unscathed. That gave Yukio Sakaguchi the chance to pick apart Rekka and win the match for Shuten-dōji.

The King’s Game match featured plenty of surprises and suspense for the wrestlers involved. The match was overlooked by four of the voice actresses from the show. They spoke in-character and announced missions for the wrestlers to complete during the match. If anyone failed a mission they would be eliminated by death! The first twist came when the match was changed from a 5-on-1 Handicap Match into an all against each other Battle Royal. The first mission was to perform a throwing technique within 30 seconds. Everyone passed. Kazuki Hirata was about to dance when he was told dancing was prohibited by one of the other missions. The next mission was to slap Hirata within 30 seconds. Everyone did it except for Mizuki Watase. When the time expired the lights went out for a moment. When they came back on Watase spat blood out of his mouth and collapsed dead. He was out. The next mission was for the wrestlers to kiss each other. Danshoku Dino gladly kissed Koji Yoshida but Saki Akai hesitated to do the same with Nobuhiro Shimatani. They almost went through with it but Akai instead slapped him at the last second. The time expired, both of them spat out blood and they died. The next mission was to hit a Lariat. Yoshida failed and died. Lastly, Dino was instructed not to expose his ass. Hirata pulled down Dino’s tights and that was enough for Dino to fail the mission. He died and Hirata was declared the winner! Hirata danced to celebrate only to discover that his No Dancing mission was still active. Blood burst out of his mouth and he died to end the segment.

In his first singles match back from injury, Kota Umeda was victorious over Yuki Ueno. A Brainbuster, a Penalty Kick and the Umeda Driver scored him the win.

Mad Paulie made easy work of Daiki Shimomura in the dark match. The only time he was threatened with defeat was from a Missile Dropkick and a School Boy. After that Paulie lifted Shimomura up for an Argentine Backbreaker then put him away with the Paulie Buster.

Shuten-dōji are the subjects of the new DDT PREMIUM PHOTO book released at the show. Masahiro Takanashi was embarrassed when one of his sexy photos was shown on the screen and asked for the segment to be clipped out of the broadcast. KUDO’s picture was of him taking a batch and Sakaguchi’s was of him wearing only a fundoshi. He hopes those who buy the book will enjoy it “with a sense of comfort”.
