6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Iwasaki with a Lariat (17:12).

Each NωA member had a different motivation for their match today. Shunma Katsumata wanted to beat Daiki Shimomura one on one to prepare for their upcoming tag team match in DNA later this week. Katsumata won with a Thrust Kick, Buzzsaw Kick and the Swan Dive X Factor. Next, Makoto Oishi had never lost to Masahiro Takanashi in a singles match. He also prepared a secret weapon ready, the Headlock! Unfortunately, Takanashi had a secret weapon of his own and it was the Hammerlock. After a back and forth battle between the two moves, Takanashi countered a Headlock into a Cradle to get the three count. Lastly, MAO was sacrificing himself so he could turn Oyama back to normal after Danshoku Dino turned it into a Gay Town the last time he was here. In return, Dino demanded that if he won the match he would get MAO’s underwear. MAO would have won when he hit the Screw Kick but Daisuke Kiso was already knocked down by an accidental Lip Lock. When MAO revived him, Dino gave MAO the Lip Lock and Danshoku Driver to win. Both Oishi and Katsumata offered to give their underwear to Dino instead. Dino was touched by their passion to protect MAO and he revealed that today’s series of matches were meant to test NωA’s loyalty to each other. Their underwear would be saved.

The ALL OUT and Shuten-dōji wrestlers got into a fight after the main event. When they were pulled apart, Konosuke Takeshita reminded Shuten-dōji that they have a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence against them in Yokohama next week. So enjoy your drinks now because they won’t have a chance to have any toasts in Yokohama! Diego called himself a Chilean who wants their belts. Akito said he wants to win the titles for Diego so he can become a champion.

Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at Antonio Honda to break up his Octopus Hold on Mad Paulie. Then during the brawl Paulie pinned Honda with the Paulie Buster. Sasaki tried to attack HARASHIMA with the chair after the match but HARASHIMA stopped him with a High Kick. When asked if he had gone to the bank today to take out all of Ken Ohka’s money, Sasaki admitted he overslept, woke up at 5pm and had no time to go there.

Neither Kazuki Hirata or Kazusada Higuchi made their expected entrances for Match #2. When Hirata’s music played, Higuchi walked out carrying an unconscious Hirata! Higuchi told everyone he got so sick of hearing Hirata’s dance practice before the show that he did something to stop it. Toru Owashi was angry at what Higuchi did, not just because Hirata is his friend but also because he now had to fight a Handicap Match againsy Higuchi & Keisuke Ishii. Luckily, Owashi accidentally struck Hirata during the fight and it woke him up so the tag match went ahead as planned.

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2017” Results

September 4, 2017

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2017 ~ LET’S GO TO NEVERLAND AFTER RYOGOKU! ALTHOUGH IT IS REALLY A NATURELAND ~ DDT 20TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL EXTRA EDITION VOL. 1”, 03/09/2017
Yamanashi Natureland Om
200 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

Special 5 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo, Mike Bailey & MAO, Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani and Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin SM Ki-san when Takeshita pinned Shimatani with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a table in the pond (67:04).

The Yamanashi Natureland Om park was home to one of the craziest series of matches DDT have ever put together. So it was only natural for them to return for more mayhem as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. Five tag teams were pitted against each other for the free for all. Konosuke Takeshita & Diego were there for ALL OUT, Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo were representing DAMNATION and Pigging 2017 sent forth Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani. Mike Bailey & MAO kept their promise to team again after “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”. Rounding out the field were Sanshiro Takagi and Ippanjin SM Ki-san, who turned out to be Munenori Sawa wearing business attire and carrying a snowboard. Takagi convinced Sawa to come over by lying about a campsite BBQ being held today. Sawa still agreed to be a volunteer pro wrestler for the day when he found out he was duped.

The match began in the open area plaza. Sasaki & Endo were armed with water guns while Takeshita & Diego brought out a barbed wire baseball bat. Everyone agreed that they were going a little bit overboard. Of course, the match spread out around the park. Takagi took the snowboard and tried to slide down a hill but fell over. DAMNATION shoved the heads of the Pigging wrestlers into toilets over at the restroom area. Bailey & MAO climbed up to the roof of the cookhouse hut and Moonsaulted onto everyone below.

As the match followed up the mountain path, Takagi found a can of hair mousse. He came up with an idea to spray the mousse onto his opponents and then try to set the mousse on fire! Because you know, that’s the kind of idea sane people come up with. Kazusada Higuchi appeared in the distance dressed for sumo. He threw aside Takeshita and Sawa but Takagi scared him off with the fire mousse. Takagi then found a Pico Pico Hammer and came up with the bright idea of setting it on fire with the mousse! He calls his creation the Shining Hammer. Takeshita & Diego fought back with a trash can and a stop sign until Higuchi reappeared and sent them down the mountain path.

A chain of Figure Four Necklocks was formed down the path. Ihashi took advantage of the opportunity by rolling his body all the way down the chain. He and Shimatani then grabbed the cameraman Yumehito Imanari and carried him into a nearby hut as a hostage. All the other wrestlers were given firecrackers and Takagi warned the Pigging wrestlers that they were surrounded. They refused to let Imanari go so the firecrackers were shot at them until they fled.

Sawa found a scooter and drove it down to the plaza. DAMNATION decided to fight the scooter with a truck. They ran over the others including Sawa on the scooter until the one man that could stand up to them did so. Higuchi used his sumo strength to not only stop the truck but push it back! Endo crawled out of the window and kicked Highuchi, then did a Moonsault onto him from the top of the truck.

Ihashi returned to the fight as a Big Zam with Shimatani by his side firing firecrackers at everyone. Takagi came to the rescue as a Gundam and he threw a clock tower at Ihashi! Bailey & MAO stopped Takagi with stereo Corkscrew Kicks. Ihashi felt so overheated in his Big Zam costume that he took it off and jumped into a pond to cool off. Diego threw Shimatani onto Ihashi with a Death Valley Driver off the ledge. Sawa then hit Diego with the Shining Wizard from the rocks. MAO saw Ihashi floating in the pond and did the Cannonball 450 onto him. Takeshita then dove onto everybody with a Cross Body into the water. Finally, Takeshita & Diego brought a table into the pond. Takeshita gave Shimatani a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the table into the water to end the match after 67 minutes of craziness.

0. Dark Match ~ Deadlift Recording Association: Yuji Okabayashi (300kg) defeated Konosuke Takeshita (250kg), Yuki Ueno (190kg), Gota Ihashi (180kg), Tomomitsu Matsunaga (160kg), Yuki Ino (200kg) and Daiki Shimomura (150kg).

2. Battle Royal Full Of Urano: Yasu Urano (Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi) defeated Yasu Urano (Daiki Shimomura), Yasu Urano (Konosuke Takeshita), Yasu Urano (Yuni) and Yasu Urano (Gota Ihashi) (Special Referee: Yasu Urano (Daisuke Kiso), Special Ring Announcer: Yasu Urano) (7:28).
2a. Yasu Urano (Gota Ihashi) eliminated Yasu Urano (Konosuke Takeshita) by Ring Out (5:34).
2b. Yasu Urano (Gota Ihashi) eliminated Yasu Urano (Daiki Shimomura) with a Diving Body Press (5:54).
2c. Yasu Urano (Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi) eliminated Yasu Urano (Gota Ihashi) with a Jackknife Pin (6:59).

3. Shunma Katsumata & Guanchulo defeated Dave Crist & MAO when Guanchulo pinned MAO with the Seijo Scratch (10:39).
4. Manabu Soya, Yuji Okabayashi & Shigehiro Irie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego when Okabayashi pinned Diego with the Golem Splash (21:43).

ALL OUT brought in the beef to go with the beer for their main event. Their opponents were the power trio of Manabu Soya, Yuji Okabayashi & Shigehiro Irie. They were too strong for ALL OUT and even Konosuke Takeshita admitted it. Diego got the worst of it by taking Soya’s Wild Bomber, Irie’s Beast Bomber and then Okabyashi’s Golem Splash for the finish. Akito said his team did not go ALL OUT enough. Takeshita & Diego agreed. If Beer Garden returns next year, the three of them will train every day so they can go ALL OUT for another exciting match.

Diego reverted back to Guanchulo so he could be Los Amigos with Shunma Katsumata one last time. They never got the chance to say goodbye when Katsumata joined NωA. After the match they had a toast and said “Salud” to the fans.

Yasu Urano was everywhere in the second match. The two wrestlers (Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Daiki Shimomura) were Urano, the referee (Daisuke Kiso) was Urano, the second at ringside (Nobuhiro Shimatani) was Urano and even the ring announcer was Urano (the real one). When another Urano (Takeshita) came out during the match everyone found out it was now a Urano Battle Royal! Two more came out (Yuni and Gota Ihashi) and they fought until one Urano was left standing. It was the Hiroshi one who won… I think… I don’t know it was hard to tell them apart…

New Beijing Pro Wrestling marked its return to DDT for the first time in years with a tag team match.

A deadlift weightlifting challenge was held at the beginning of the show. When Yuji Okabayashi showed up to compete it was of no surprise that he would win it, using his last turn to lift 300kg. Takeshita was the runner up with 250kg as his best lift. The trainee Yuki Ino got to show off his strength by lifting 200kg. He finished in third place because of it.

Kanpai! This year’s Beer Garden series began with an explosive start from DDT. More matches and drama were made for “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” at Sumo Hall. In the main event, DAMNATION were victorious over ALL OUT in a highly tense match-up. This was a preview of both Konosuke Takeshita Vs Tetsuya Endo and Akito Vs Daisuke Sasaki with some Diego and Mad Paulie thrown in for good measure. Endo took out both Takeshita & Diego with the Springboard Overhead Kick then pinned Diego with the Shooting Star Press. After the match Sasaki played nice and offered a handshake to ALL OUT. Even Endo was confused by Sasaki’s sudden nice behaviour. Endo shook Takeshita’s hand but held on tight. He then kicked Takeshita and the rest of DAMNATION attacked ALL OUT. Endo yelled “Wrestling is not fighting” at Takeshita while Sasaki brought out a pair of scissors and cut off pieces of Diego’s hair! Sasaki was in the middle of saying his catchphrase when Takeshita grabbed him from behind and gave him a German Suplex. DAMNATION fled out of the ring. Both Takeshita and Akito swore they will get their revenge at Sumo Hall. Diego was the calm one of the three and assured the others he was okay. He asked both of them to win their matches at Sumo Hall. But today, let’s forget about DAMNATION’s disgusting actions by drinking some delicious alcohol!

Kazusada Higuchi provoked HARASHIMA with a muscular pose after their tag match.

Movement was slow in the 3 Way Blindfold Match. Antonio Honda, Masahiro Takanashi and Nobuhiro Shimatani all had to wrestle blindfolded while also wearing bras. The first person to strip off an opponent’s bra would be declared the winner. Honda told his “Gon, The Little Fox” story but missed all of his sneak attacks afterward. The three of them wandered outside the ring and were all nearly counted out. Back in the ring, Takanashi thought the referee was one of his opponents so he tried to give him the Takatonic. He slid off the ref and bumped into Honda’s back. Takanashi then pulled off Honda’s bra to win the match.

Nobody really wanted to wait for Kazuki Hirata to make his entrance before Match #2 could begin. Hirata pleaded to everyone to let him have his entrance because it’s been so long since he last did it. The song played but everyone else ignored it and began the match. Danshoku Dino then grabbed Hirata and fought with him through the crowd. Dino’s attention was then grabbed by Sanshiro Takagi when Takagi used the Danshoku Nightmare on Keisuke Ishii to taunt Dino. Hirata put on his Hirata Go! glasses and got to dance again until Dino put him in the Lip Lock. Ishii then hit a Running Knee Attack for the victory. Takagi told Hirata after the match that nothing about him has changed in the last three months. He’s still using the same song they are not allowed to use on DDT UNIVERSE. Maybe the reason he can’t become strong is because his power up music gets muted every time he appears on DDT UNIVERSE! But there’s a way around this. DDT can make a substitute song to “TOKYO GO!” but they’ll need somebody to do the vocals. John Robinson isn’t going to do it so Hirata should! Takagi is giving Hirata the rest of the week to study English, record the perfect cover of “TOKYO GO!” and make the song his own! Hirata is expected to present his song on the final day of Beer Garden.

Takagi’s day wasn’t over. He still had Dino to deal with. They will fight each other at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” to celebrate 20 years of DDT. But Dino wants something out of it. Takagi has done a good job running DDT not just this year but for all 20 years. But what would it be like if Dino was in charge? Dino wants full authority over all of DDT’s decisions if he beats Takagi at Sumo Hall! Takagi considered it and came up with a demand of his own. If Takagi wins the Dino will have to go find a romantic partner and get married! Takagi revealed that Dino’s mother spoke to him recently. She doesn’t want her son to be single at 40 years old. She wants Takagi to help her find another gay wrestler for Dino to marry. Dino accepted the decision. After all, DDT has always been the place where Dino decides the most important things in his life. The risk is worth the reward of rewriting DDT in his own image. But a match of this calibur cannot be a normal singles match. Dino brought up the Weapon Rumble rule. It is the match that best symbolises DDT and it hasn’t been done in years. They both agreed. Takagi Vs Dino at Sumo Hall is now a Weapon Rumble Match. If Dino wins he takes over DDT but if Takagi wins, Dino must get married!

Dave Crist introduced himself to the DDT fans after the intermission. He thanked DDT for bringing him back to the beautiful country of Japan. Nobuhiro Shimatani, still wearing his bra from the earlier blindfold match, didn’t take kindly to Crist and attacked him. Crist knocked Shimatani out with his finishing move, the Square & Compass.

The first round draw was held for the DNA Pro Wrestling Koshien 2017 tournament being held this Saturday. All entrants were in attendance except for Dai Suzuki who was still recovering from the mystery biker attack last week. The mystery biker made his appearance again here and this time attacked MAO with a chair! The first round matches are Mizuki Watase Vs Kouki Iwasaki, Naomi Yoshimura Vs Dai Suzuki, Diego Vs Yuki Ueno and Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO.

Some background on the two masked wrestlers. 24/7 Man was a normal person who was rejected by his crush. So he trained at 24/7 Workout to become a pro wrestler and impress her. Ikinari! Mask is a chef at the Ikinari! Steak shop who was given a magic mask by the head chef. The mask transformed him into a pro wrestler.

Naomi Yoshimura is now using the Shouten Kai.

4a. Rematch: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Diego when Endo pinned Diego with the Shooting Star Press (13:28).

The main event was so heated that the two teams brawled outside the ring and lost track of the count so everyone was counted out. DAMNATION didn’t care and were ready to leave when Konosuke Takeshita called them back and demanded a rematch so the audience will get their match. And also so Diego could win some steak. Sadly, Diego didn’t get what he wanted in the end. Tetsuya Endo beat him and DAMNATION got the Beef Milage card instead. Endo was looking forward to his meal but Daisuke Sasaki turned down the prize. He was too hungover for steak so he gave the card to Nobuhiro Shimatani instead. Sasaki called over to the TBS guy and said to make sure he got the shot of Endo’s Shooting Star Press.

The Gran MilliMeters team were concerned that Danshoku Dino’s antics would ruin their chances of impressing the TBS people. They tried to stop him from doing what he normally does but failed. Even worse was the cameraman made sure he recorded from the right angles to embarrass Daiki Shimomura & Shimatani even further.

Shimatani complained about having to be in another match against Dino after what happened to him the day before. He didn’t want his first kiss to be from a 40 year old gay DDT wrestler! He would only go through with the match on one condition. If he beats Dino then he gets to date one of the women from TBS. Amon Tsurumi couldn’t promise it but sure, whatever gets the match going. Shimatani hulked up and hit Dino with the Leg Drop but in the end couldn’t win. He cried after the match until Tsurumi asked him to close his eyes. He did so. Tsurumi then kissed Shimatani.

Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Joey Ryan and Danshoku Dino & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Takeshita pinned Matsunaga with a Table Splash From The Ladder On The Stage (23:28).

This match was going to be so difficult for one referee to handle so Mike Bailey was brought in to be an official with Daisuke Kiso. As usual the match broke away from it starting area and went across the Handmade In Japan festival. Sanshiro Takagi and Danshoku Dino fought through the farmer’s market. Dino then tried to force Konosuke Takeshita into the men’s restroom with him. Diego rescued Takeshita by putting Dino in a sleeper but even in an unconscious state Dino still reached out to grab Bailey’s crotch. Everyone then moved on to the Accessory Shop where Dino purchased a necklace while the others linked together a chain of Figure Four Neck Locks. Dino then performed the Danshoku Nightmare to everyone along the chain. Outside, Takagi found a bicycle and cycled into his opponents to Lariat them. Joey Ryan had to stop him by sticking a lolly pop into his mouth. Over at the main stage Bailey kept getting in the way and got caught in the crossfire. He got sick of it and fought back by kicking Dino and Diego away then Moonsaulting off the stage onto everyone below. Dino set up a ladder on the stage, climbed up halfway and put himself in the Hell Gate position. Takeshita threw Tomomitsu Matsunaga into Dino’s backside then placed him on a table. Takeshita kicked Dino off the ladder with a Big Boot to the rear then climbed the ladder. Takeshita jumped off and Splashed Matsunaga through the table for the three count! After the match Takeshita invited the Executive Chairman of the festival onto the stage. He said DDT had now appeared in the festical two years in a row then asked if they could come back next year to make it three. The chairman said he would consider it.

7. MAIN GIG – Break Open The New Door Of DNA!: Shunma Katsumata Vs Yuki Ueno

A press conference was held featuring most of the wrestlers competing on the show. Yuki Ueno is looking forward to being in the main event because it is a big opportunity. With Kazusada Higuchi graduating and moving up to DDT, Ueno thinks it is up to him and Shunma Katsumata to open the door and show everyone the new DNA. Katsumata sees Ueno as a mystery for him to solve in the ring.

Higuchi’s graduation will leave a large gap that needs to be filled. Naomi Yoshimura is up for the challenge. This is his chance to knock down the old regime and take Higuchi’s place on the top of the DNA mountain. Kouki Iwasaki sees his position in DNA under attack and he has to protect it. Ryota Nakatsu is back in DNA again just for the special occasion. He’d rather fight Higuchi than team with him but this match is all about Higuchi so he’ll go along with it to make some memories. Higuchi realises that everyone in this match has been his rival of sorts at some point and that’s just how he wants it to be.

MAO credits Daisuke Sasaki for making Tetsuya Endo into the wrestler he is today. Endo said he is indebted to Sasaki and he might give him 700,00 yen out of his million yen prize money. Endo thinks he can live with 300,000 yen.

All Dai Suzuki has to do to save his career is not lose to 4 wrestlers in 7 minutes. NOSAWA Rongai couldn’t attend the press conference so he sent Black Tiger VII in his place. Tiger doesn’t understand the stipulation for the 4 Vs 1 match and thinks the entire bout is disgusting and pointless. Ken Ohka appeared in the room after the conference ended to give a motivational speech to Suzuki.

The Young Donuts are looking to make an impact. Rekka doesn’t care if Cody Hall is over 200cm tall, he will do what he can to beat him. Diego wants to make up for missing DNA’s first show in Korakuen Hall. Hall is entering DNA aiming to crush the competition. Mike Bailey wants to call his duo with Hall Team Cakes.
