5. DDT Nagano Sales Manager Toru Owashi Local Triumph! “Owashi And Funny Friends Part 4” Special 6-Man Tag Match: Toru Owashi, Keisuke Ishii & Antonio Honda defeated Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Kazusada Higuchi when Owashi pinned Takanashi with La Magistral Cradle (11:06).

7. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA, Kazuki Hirata & Yuki Ueno defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino when Hirata pinned Iino with the Backward Miracle One Shot Cradle (17:33).

Toru Owashi wasn’t certain that Kazuki Hirata got the three count in the main event. HARASHIMA had to tell him when the referee counts to three, it is a three count. Yuki Ueno congratulated Owashi on doing his best as the sales manager for the show today. Hirata got to do his dance and thought the rest of DISASTER BOX joined in behind him. They instead sat down in the corner of the ring and watched him dance on his own.

While his friends congratulated him for his job today, Owashi admitted he is worried that the attendance for DDT’s Nagano shows has been gradually decreasing. He doesn’t know when DDT will return to Nagano but when they do he wants the fans to bring their neighbors, their grandparents and anyone else to the show with them.

Danshoku Dieno wanted to prepare himself for the possibility of fighting DAMNATION on his own so he changed his tag match into a 3 Vs 1 Handicap Match. Sanshiro TakagiSuper Sasadango Machine & Makoto Oishi used some DAMNATION moves on Dieno until Oishi had a change of heart and protected his friend from the attacks. Oishi would never abandon Dieno so the match was changed back to its original tag team bout. Takagi continued acting like a DAMNATION heel and ordered Sasadango to attack the other team with a chair. Sasadango couldn’t do that to his friends so he attacked Takagi instead! The match was changed back to a 3 Vs 1 Handicap but this time Dieno, Oishi & Sasadango was the team and Takagi was on his own. Dieno beat Takagi with the Danshoku Driver then sent a message to Daisuke Sasaki. Dieno said he will pull off the Sumo Hall main event that Sasaki will not. He told Sasaki to keep watching from the shadows.

Hyper Misao used an accidental unmasking to roll Maki Ito into a School Boy and pin her with her feet on the ropes for leverage. As a form of apology, Misao gave Ito her vote for the Dramatic General Election. Unfortunately Misao then found out that wrestlers cannot vote for other wrestlers in the contest so her voting ballot was confiscated. The merchandise Misao purchased to get the ballot still stands and she will not be given a refund.

7a. Danshoku Dieno eliminated Shigehiro Irie with the Gaydo Clutch (16:09).
7b. Danshoku Dieno eliminated Meiko Satomura with the Danshoku Driver (20:01).
*Meiko Satomura fails in V1. Danshoku Dieno becomes the 67th KO-D Openweight Champion!

The bumpy road towards Sumo Hall took another crazy turn today when Danshoku Dieno reclaimed the KO-D Openweight Title! Dieno used all of his wits to pin both champion Meiko Satomura and enemy Shigehiro Irie in a Survival 3 Way Match to win the belt. Irie was eliminated first when Dieno stopped his Beast Bomber with the Lip Lock. That left Irie defenceless for Satomura to hit the Scorpio Rising. Dieno then rolled Irie over with the Gaydo Clutch to pin him for the three count. Satomura took control of the match until Dieno blocked the Scorpio Rising and hit his own Death Valley Bomb on the champion. From there the Danshoku Driver put Satomura down and out leading to the new champion crowned.

In all his honesty, Dieno never thought he could do it but now he gets to be in the “PETER PAN” main event for the first time in his career! But first he needed to settle his grudge with Irie. He knows that Irie was never the best with words but Dieno understands what Irie wanted ever since his return earlier this year. He knows Irie didn’t like what DDT has changed into and he fought to make his vision of DDT. Irie is a part of DDT and Dieno promises to carry Irie’s vision on his back as champion. Dieno is grateful for what Irie has done so rather than apologise, he wants to thank him instead. Dieno offered out a handshake. At first Irie refused but only because Dieno stuck out his right hand. Irie wanted to shake Dieno’s left hand because it is closer to his heart.

Dieno then called over to Satomura to bury the hatchet with her. He understands what Satomura was fighting for. The KO-D Title is not exclusive to men or women, it is indiscriminate. After today Satomura has a win over Dieno and Dieno has a win over Satomura. Now he wants to shake hands with the rival who he is tied with. Satomura shook Dieno’s left hand then shook hands with Irie as well. All of Dieno’s problems are over. Well, except for the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” main event…

The Sumo Hall main event is now confirmed to be Danshoku Dieno Vs Daisuke Sasaki with the KO-D Title on the line. When Irie and Satomura left the ring, Sasaki entered to confront the new champion. This is what Sasaki hates about Dieno. He hates how Dieno unexpectedly achieved his dream of main eventing Sumo Hall. Sasaki hates people who talk about their dreams. He is also sick of Dieno being the symbol of DDT. At Sumo Hall, Sasaki wants to make Dieno cry instead. Dieno told Sasaki that the main event of Sumo Hall will exceed his imagination. So if Sasaki wants to take the title from Dieno and replace him as the symbol, he better be prepared!

Hardcore action was promised in the semi-main event. Kikutaro was ready for it because he had both Sabu and Jun Kasai on his team. All he asked was for ALL OUT to avoid touching the right side of his head because he legit just had ear surgery. Konosuke Takeshita chopped the ear and knocked Kikutaro out. Kikutaro had to be carried away from ringside but he eventually returned with his bandages wrapped around his mask. There were a lot of chairs used in the match thanks to Sabu’s valet Super Genie throwing them into the ring whenever Sabu requested one. Sabu put Takeshita through a table with a Top Rope Leg Drop and Kasai hit the Pearl Harbor Splash but Akito & Shunma Katsumata stopped the pin in time to continue the match. Kikutaro set Takeshita up for a Brainbuster but wasted time giving his usual match ending speech to the audience. Takeshita later put Kikutaro in position for the Deadlift German Suplex and he also wasted time speaking to the fans. Kikutaro rolled him over with a Samson Clutch for a nearfall. He then tried the Brainbuster but his back gave out. Takeshita was then able to hit the Deadlift German Suplex for the win.

With that match out of the way, the entire ALL OUT unit stood in the ring to discuss their current form. Yuki Iino says he is ALL OUT but hasn’t gotten used to teaming with the others yet. Takeshita said ALL OUT is now fully resurrected but they have no place on the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” card with one month to go. If DDT isn’t going to give them a match then maybe they should go on the next episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” and do something about it. Takeshita was then cut off by the surprise appearance of the STRONG HEARTS! Out came CIMA, T-Hawk, El Lindaman & Tian Yunan down to the ring. CIMA told Takeshita he watched the match he just had and felt there wasn’t enough fever in the ring. CIMA wants to know if Takeshita is still on a high level. Does he know what real pro wrestling is? The STRONG HEARTS took a midnight flight from Shanghai just to come here today and this is what they had to watch? Well CIMA has news for them. The STRONG HEARTS have their schedule free on 21st October, the same day DDT goes to Sumo Hall. What is ALL OUT going to do about it?

Takeshita sees where this is going. ALL OUT Vs STRONG HEARTS at Sumo Hall. A tag match would be fun but Takeshita wants something else. He wants to fight CIMA one on one! CIMA couldn’t believe the nerve of this kid calling him out. CIMA has been living in this ring for 21 years. Is Takeshita really prepared to wrestle him? We’ll find out because CIMA accepted the challenge! T-Hawk then took the microphone and demanded the remaining wrestlers in the two units face off in a 6-Man Tag Match. Three versus three is the perfect amount for him. Akito said there was no reason to refuse so that match is on too. Interim GM Tetsuya Koda announced both matches for 21st October in Sumo Hall. Takeshita then pointed out the next episode of Maji Manji is being held in Shibuya in two days time and he wants a special match there. El Lindaman suggested a full ALL OUT Vs STRONG HEARTS 8-Man Tag Match so that every DDT fan and STRONG HEARTS fan could enjoy it. That match was agreed to. Takeshita noticed how STRONG HEARTS are going around the Japanese wrestling scene doing whatever they want. When they come to DDT, ALL OUT will be there to face them!

The Moonlight Express were lulled into a false sense of security when The Brahman Brothers started off their match offering handshakes. The Brahmans then spat water at the Express and attacked them to start the match. Buckets of water were placed around ringside and the two teams threw the buckets at each other and the audience. Mainly the audience. The Brahmans did their bowling ball suitcase spot but Mike Bailey & MAO recovered to do the Skylab Hurricane on Brahman Kei. They attempted the Michinoku Tornado Driver but it was stopped when Brahman Shu blinded both of them with black ink mist. The Brahmans took out a stop sign and tried to hit MAO with it but Kei ended up hitting Shu. MAO then popped a balloon in front of Kei’s face. The balloon turned out to be filled with powder and it blinded Kei! MAO & Bailey climbed the same top rope and together jumped off in different directions. Bailey Moonsaulted outside onto Shu while MAO jumped into the ring to hit the Cannoball 450 on Kei, pinning him to earn a successful defence of the KO-D Tag Team Titles. After the match as the Brahmans were leaving they said they gained new memories today. They also called the Midnight Express crazy! That means a lot coming from them.

Super Sasadango Machine had to reveal a secret to explain why he was teaming with DISASTER BOX today. He lifted up his mask to reveal he is Muscle Sakai! Sakai was a member of the original DISASTER BOX back in 2006 so that’s why he was out here teaming with the modern version. The eliminations in the 5 Vs 5 match mostly consisted of ring outs. Soma Takao blinded HARASHIMA with red mist. That allowed DAMNATION to easily eliminate HARASHIMA and also Toru Owashi at the same time. Sasadango sacrificed himself to eliminate Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani with him when all three were Dropkicked off the ring apron. Kazuki Hirata then evened the teams down to two each when he snuck onto the apron and knocked Takao to the floor with a Sliding Kick. Tetsuya Endo put DAMNATION back in the lead by pinning Yuki Ueno with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb. Hirata surprised Endo by pinning him with the Miracle One Shot Cradle, bringing the match down to Hirata and Sasaki. Hirata did what he could to pin Sasaki including attempting the Mad Splash. Sasaki blocked the splash with his knees and put Hirata in the Cross Facelock to make him submit. Sasaki wins the match as the sole survivor for DAMNATION! Backstage Sasadango told DISASTER BOX he will continue to support them because they are no good at studying their opponents.

Ethan Page made a statement in his return to Japan by beating Kazusada Higuchi. The power versus power match ended when Page gave Higuchi an over shoulder Power Slam from the top rope for the pin.

Keisuke Okuda announced at the beginning of the show that he is now a a full time member of the DDT roster starting today. He had his excuses for being on the losing team against Shuten-dōji. He’s fine teaming with Tanomusaku Toba because he knows how good he is with gloves on. It was Yumehito Imanari that was the weak link according to Okuda. Looking ahead to his new status, Okuda wants to face Yukio Sakaguchi in more matches.

The Philosopher’s Stomp from Jason Kincaid followed by the Back Drop from Mizuki Watase gave RENEGADES the victory in the show opener.

The New Member Audition for Booing 2018 gave a spotlight to many low level pro wrestlers from across the independent wrestling scene. Sanshiro Takagi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga took part in the match both as participants and as judges. We had Movie Star using a rubber swimming ring to trap his opponents, Gundan Hitori walking around Korakuen singing into a Coke bottle, Monster Halloween carrying a chainsaw down to the ring and even a surprise appearance from Lingerie Muto. The final four were Takagi, Matsunaga, Muto and Ehime Pro joshi wrestler Mizuki Saijo. Muto climbed the ropes to do the Moonsault but he slipped and bounced out of the ring. Takagi and Matsunaga ended up on the ring apron when they missed an attack on Saijo against the ropes. Saijo then grabbed her water gun and sprayed the two Booing wrestlers until they fell down to the floor. Saijo was declared the winner!

With the Battle Royal portion of the competition over, Sanshiro Takagi announced the judging results. Everyone passed! Their prize is a spot on “ALL DOIN”, a special event for indie wrestlers taking place at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 9th November. Takagi then introduced the executive chairperson for the show. He is the student wrestling legend MEN’S Teioh! His role is to help everyone prepare for the show. Teioh was dismayed over the amount of shit being given to him but he knows he can find a diamond in there somewhere.

Yuni had Makoto Oishi pinned with a Hurricanrana but Antonio Honda poked him in the eyes with a Double Gongitsune Strike. Oishi then flipped Yuni over to pin him for the three count.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAIWAN RAMEN~” Results

September 17, 2018

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAIWAN RAMEN~”, 17/09/2018
Nagoya City East Sports Centre
249 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga defeated Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Matsunaga pinned Shimatani with a Cradle (6:22).
2. Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Yuki Ueno defeated MAO, Keisuke Ishii & Makoto Oishi when Hirata pinned Oishi with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (9:08).
3. Do Not Stop The DDT Video Group Camera! 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match: Yumehito Imanari defeated Super Sasadango Machine & Norikazu Fujioka when Imanari pinned Machine with the Chubby Knee (7:53).
4. KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda when KUDO pinned Honda with the Diving Double Knee Drop (10:04).
5. The Strongest Oyaji Decision Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Tanomusaku Toba by Knockout with a Right High Kick (6:18).
6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino when Endo pinned Iino with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (16:20).
7. Nagoya Specialty! Miso Stew Special Tag Match: Meiko Satomura & HARASHIMA defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when HARASHIMA pinned Watase with the Somato (12:09).

Meiko Satomura gave Shigehiro Irie the Death Valley Bomb then held him back while HARASHIMA pinned Mizuki Watase with the Somato. Satomura told the crowd afterward that she wants to appeal her way of life in DDT because she has pride in what she has accomplished in joshi.

A missed Spear ruined ALL OUT’s chances of beating DAMNATION in their latest showdown. Yuki Iino targeted Tetsuya Endo but a well timed dodge led Iino Spearing into Konosuke Takeshita instead. Endo capitalised with the Handspring Leg Lariat and Swivel Torture Rack Bomb to win.

Yukio Sakaguchi and Tanomusaku Toba both focused on trying to get either a knockout win or a submission over the other. A clash between Sakaguchi’s High Kick and Toba’s Right Hook ended in Sakaguchi’s favour and Yukinori Matsui stopped the match when Toba hit the canvas with no sign of recovery. After the match Sakaguchi reminisced about the old days and thanked Toba for bringing him back to his entry to DDT 6 years ago. He asked for another match sometime but Toba pleaded with him not to do it. Shuten-dōji then invited Toba to join them for a toast but they did not have a drink for him, so Toba grabbed tea from a spectator.

Before the DDT Video Group 3 Way Match began, Yumehito Imanari revealed that he is quitting his role in the team and part of it is Super Sasadango Machine’s fault! Norikazu Fujioka pleaded with him to change his mind otherwise the entire team would collapse without him. Imanari then proposed to change the match into a 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match. If Imanari loses to Sasadango & Fujioka then he will not quit the Video Team. Fujioka tried to stand up and act tough but Sasadango reminded him he doesn’t have the body or the training to wrestle. Fujioka proved Sasadango wrong by doing a Hurricanrana. Unfortunately he did it to Sasadango instead of Imanari. That led to Imanari hitting Sasadango with the Chubby Knee to win the match. Sasadango accepted defeat and said he and Fujioka will do their best to run DDT’s video production without Imanari. However Imanari had a change in heart and decided he will keep working with them when he can while he wrestles for Ganbare☆Wrestling.

Kazuki Hirata survived the Miracle Ecstasy from Makoto Oishi. He then countered the Jikiden Tornado Clutch into the Miracle One Shot Cradle to get DISASTER BOX the win. This was good progress for the Hirata, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno as they prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match next month.

A big entertainment news story in Japan currently is the retirement of singer Namie Amuro. The DDT wrestler most effected by this news is Nobuhiro Shimatani. He wanted to sing her songs because her music changed his entire life. Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga did what they could to stop him. Booing 2018 won the match and to add insult to injury, sang and danced along to one of Namie Amuro’s songs afterwards. Takagi didn’t know the lyrics so he just hummed along to the music.

5h. Sanshiro Takagi (8) pinned Kazuki Hirata (0) with a Dropkick (9:33).

6. Shuten-dōji Vs RENEGADES!: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi when Irie pinned Takanashi with the Beast Bomber (11:05).
7. DISASTER BOX Vs DAMNATION!: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Ueno pinned Paulie with a Frankensteiner (18:24).

Today’s result is a good sign for DISASTER BOX as they prepare for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match next month. HARASHIMA hit Mad Paulie with the Standing Somato, stunning Paulie long enough for Yuki Ueno to pin him with a Frankensteiner. HARASHIMA encouraged the newborn DISASTER BOX to rise rapidly and win the titles from DAMNATION!

DDT had 50 copies of Kazuki Hirata’s exercise DVD still in stock that they needed to get rid of. They were able to sell 41 of them up until today’s show and came to the conclusion that nobody else will buy the remaining copies. Sanshiro Takagi wanted Hirata to buy the remaining 9 copies but Hirata refused. They agreed to make their match a 60 minute time limit Falls Count Anywhere match set for 9 falls! Every time a wrestler lost a fall they are forced to buy a DVD for 3,000 yen a piece. All 9 falls had to be done within the 60 minutes. Takagi won the first 8 falls but failed to make a clean sweep when Hirata caught him in the Miracle One Shot Cradle to win the final fall. That was enough of a moral victory to satisfy Hirata. Plus he now gets 8 votes for the Dramatic General Election because he spent 24,000 yen at the DDT merch table! I guess there’s no rules prohibiting the contestants from buying their own voting ballots to vote for themselves.

The unlikely pairing of Makoto Oishi & Keisuke Okuda had trouble meshing together but they ultimately pulled it off in the end. Oishi positioned himself in front of Yuki Iino and provoked Okuda to come and kick him. Oishi dodged it and Okuda kicked Iino. Oishi then pinned Iino with a Jackknife.

After intermission Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga came out to make an announcement. They are displeased over Booing 2018 being left off the 23rd September Korakuen Hall show. They also noticed that DDT for the last few years has been light on showcasing independent wrestlers. DDT is owned by CyberAgent (in fact the Korakuen show takes place on the 1st anniversary of the sale) but they will always remember their past as an indie league. So they want to hold a special audition match on the Korakuen pre-show with the goal of recruiting new independent wrestlers, local wrestlers and student wrestlers for a massive dream indie show called “ALL DOIN”! Takagi is aware of the super indie show called “ALL IN” that recently took place in America. He admits this idea is probably a rip off. He wants anybody in Japan interested in taking part to DM him on social media with the hashtag #ALLDOIN.

He will certainly end up having a DDT Extreme Title defence but against who is the big question.
