DDT “WRESTLING OKEHAZAMA 2017” Results

September 18, 2017

DDT “WRESTLING OKEHAZAMA 2017”, 18/09/2017
Nagoya City North Sports Center
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Katsumata pinned Hirata with a Double Stomp (8:08).
2. 38 Year Old Wrestler Trial 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi and Makoto Oishi when Paulie pinned Oishi with the Paulie Buster (5:57).
3. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Mike Bailey, MAO & Diego when KUDO pinned MAO with the Diving Double Knee Drop (9:51).
4. Legendary Man Jet Resurrected Here! Nagoya Specialty 6-Man Tag Match – Technical Jet Rules: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Shogo Takagi defeated Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Antonio Honda when Takagi pinned Honda with the Technical Jet (13:10).
5. From Nagoya World! Special Single Match: Shigehiro Irie defeated Soma Takao with the Beast Bomber (12:23).
6. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Sasaki pinned Takeshita with the Sasaki Hurricanrana (16:01).

Daisuke Sasaki avenged yesterday’s result by pinning Konosuke Takeshita in today’s main event. Sasaki caught Takeshita with his flash Hurricanrana for the sudden three count. After the match Sasaki said that yesterday he borrowed from Ken Ohka but today he gave it back. He offered a handshake to Takeshita and convinced him that today he is different. Of course, he was lying and he kicked Takeshita between the legs during the handshake. Sasaki taunted Takeshita for not knowing any better then said he values the DDT Extreme Title over the KO-D Openweight Title.

I think this is Shigehiro Irie’s final DDT show before his next tour of America. He won his last match and is still on good terms with his opponent Soma Takao. Irie said it is important for both of their generation to grow up. He knows he will grow stronger in America and he hopes Takao will grow stronger too while he is gone. Then they can fight again when Irie comes home.

Disaster BOX were reunited to celebrate the return of Shogo “Jet” Takagi to a DDT ring. HARASHIMA marked the occasion by wearing his old Disaster BOX gear (which was pretty much the Darkside HERO! costume without the mask). Danshoku Dino said after ten years he and Takagi will get to settle their grudge. He then suggested the match to be fought under Technical Jet Rules. The winner is the first wrestler to use Takagi’s wind up punch finisher. It is necessary for the person to do four punches and yell “Jet!” during each punch. Then they had to wind up the fifth punch and hit it to win. Takagi and Antonio Honda got into a duel between Jet Punches and Bionic Elbows. It ended with Takagi coming out on top and hitting the final punch to win the match for Disaster BOX. HARASHIMA said in the post match speech that when he was in Disaster BOX he took part in more serious matches. But it was a pleasure to have fun with his old friends again.

Kazuki Hirata was accompanied by members of AED Medical Pro Wrestling in the opening match. The group promotes medical care through pro wrestling and music.

HARASHIMA and KUDO last had a singles match together in May 2015 but the two have a long history together as friends and rivals. Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine is another long time relationship, one that even Dino doesn’t want to damage. This match was unexpectedly put together by Hisaya Imabayashi, much to Dino’s surprise.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONKOTSU~” Results

July 9, 2017

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONKOTSU~”, 09/07/2017
Hakata Star Lane
424 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Soma Takao & Hirata Collection A.T. when Paulie pinned Hirata with the Reverse Splash (7:50).
2. Masahiro Takanashi Trials 3 Way Match Final Round!: Yuto Aijima defeated Antonio Honda and Masahiro Takanashi when Aijima pinned both Honda and Takanashi after a Body Slam on Honda and a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on Takanashi (7:40).

5. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki & MAO when Takeshita pinned MAO with the Surprise Rose (11:01).
6. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Last Man Standing Match: Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Joey Ryan (I/c) ended in a Double KO (23:58).
*V3 for Sasaki. V? for Joey Ryan.
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) defeated KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi when Higuchi pinned Sakaguchi with a Nodowa Bomb (23:20).
*V2 for YaroZ.

In a repeat of the ending to their singles match last month, Kazusada Higuchi used Power Bombs to fight out of Yukio Sakaguchi’s Triangle Choke. Sakaguchi kept hold of the Choke for as long as he could. However this time Higuchi kept his consciousness and fully broke Sakaguchi with the Nodowa Bomb. Not only did Sakaguchi let go of the move but he was also too beaten to kick out of the pin. Both KUDO & Sakaguchi offered to shake Shigehiro Irie & Higuchi’s hands after the match. The KO-D Tag Team Champions instead chose to bow as a show of respect. Higuchi said he could not have won the match without Irie. In return Irie talked about how much he admires Higuchi’s strength.

The Last Man Standing grudge match between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan ended in a draw. Sasaki provoked Ryan by bringing out a picture of Ryan’s wife Laura James to the ring with him. The match became more violent as time went by. Sasaki used a chair for his Super Elbow Drop and also to add extra pain to the Cross Facelock. He then poured thumbtacks into Ryan’s tights and went to attack him with the chair. Ryan fought back by pouring thumbtacks into Sasaki’s mouth and Super Kicking him afterwards. Ryan then Speared Sasaki from the apron through a table outside the ring! When Sasaki got back up, Ryan set up several chairs next to each other in the ring then climbed the ropes. Sasaki stopped him, climbed up the ropes too and then gave Ryan a Superplex onto the chairs! Both of them could not answer the 10 count so the match was ruled a draw. Since the DDT Extreme Title and Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title were both on the line, the result counts as successful title defences for both men. Both Sasaki and Ryan demanded a rematch because neither of them lost.

When ALL OUT were finished celebrating their win in the ring, Naomi Yoshimura came out with his latest act of revenge against Konosuke Takeshita. This time he was stealing Takeshita’s power blocks. Takeshita is always training with power blocks when he warms up for his matches so without them he can’t warm up properly anymore. However Takeshita pointed out that both DDT and Big Japan were having shows in Hakata Star Lane today and it was Big Japan who were supplying the equipment. Those aren’t his power blocks, they belong to a Big Japan wrestler. Suddenly out came Yuji Okabayashi! He grabbed the power blocks from Yoshimura, yelled at him to never disturb his training again and left. Yoshimura tried to act like he was still stealing everything important in Takeshita’s life and soon it will include the KO-D Openweight Championship. Takeshita told Yoshimura to take it easy.

Danashoku Dino summoned Makoto Oishi, Nobuhiro Shimatani and Yuki Ueno out during the Hakata Specialty match. He announced that we are in the middle of the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival so they should celebrate. He then stripped the three of their clothes and they were all wearing fundoshis underneath. He then made the three of them form a pillar of asses against the corner. Unfortunately for Dino’s partner Mike Bailey he was the one who ended up face first into the pillar. With Bailey incapacitated, Dino had no help and was pinned by HARASHIMA. After the match Toru Owashi thanked HARASHIMA for winning because he was knocked out earlier by the Danshoku Nightmare VR. Owashi teaming with HARASHIMA again brought back memories of their Disaster BOX unit. Backstage Owashi claimed he was now a member of Smile Squash but HARASHIMA denied it. The match was only a Disaster BOX reunion, nothing more. Owashi then asked if HARASHIMA remembers their fellow BOX member Shogo Takagi because he still has his phone number but never calls him.

Kota Umeda greeted the crowd at the beginning of the show. He is still recovering from his injuries but he promises he will be wrestling again when DDT returns to Hakata.
