A packed monorail train of 24 fans got to take a trip with DDT across the Chiba line. The Battle Royal began with Sanshiro Takagi, Hiroshi Yamato and Konosuke Takeshita duking it out as the monorail left Chiba Station. With slams prohibited for the safety of the monorail and everybody onboard, the wrestlers had to think up of other ways to fight. Takeshita quickly came up with the idea to hang off of the train handles to Dropkick his opponents without having to land on the floor.

When the monorail made its first stop at Chiba Park Station a salaryman walked on board reading a newspaper. It was Ippanjin Munenori Sawa! Takeshita attacked Sawa and purposely ripped the sleeve on Sawa’s suit jacket. Sawa however used one of the train handles to trap Takeshita in a Wristlock.

Akito & Yuki Iino entered the match at Sakusabe Station. Iino put Yamato in an Argentine Backbreaker while Akito traded Anklelocks with Sawa.

Chaos broke out when another man in a suit started attacking the wrestlers and acting lewd. It was Danshoku Dieno! The wrestlers were put into a linked chain of Headscissors for Dieno to do the Danshoku Nightmare along the entire monorail.

With no eliminations yet the car got even more packed when DISASTER BOX got on board at Anagawa Station. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno got caught up in Dieno’s shenanigans. It still continued when Takeshita hit Dieno with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title belt. Dieno just fell into Iino and got his hands all over him even more.

ALL OUT were so focused on Dieno that they didn’t see DAMNATION coming on board at Dobotsukoen Station. Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani kicked every member of ALL OUT as well as Dieno out of the monorail and the doors closed on them, eliminating ALL OUT from the match!

Isami Kodaka was ready for a fight when the monorail reached Mitsuwadai Station. For a few moments we got the dream matchup of HARASHIMA Vs Kodaka inside a monorail. Meanwhile Ueno put Endo in a Cobra Twist.

Familiar music played at Tsuga Station for the entry of the one, the only, Chinsuke Nakamura! Kodaka hit Nakamura with a knee to the back of the head and pinned him for the quick elimination. YeahOh!

Gota Ihashi got on board at Sakuragi Station. The other wrestlers welcomed Ihashi by forming arches with their arms for Ihashi to walk through. The arches guided Ihashi to the door at the other end of the monorail. Kodaka and Endo then kicked him out before the door closed to eliminate him.

Chaos broke out again when everyone decided to gang up on Shimatani. Even Takao and Endo got involved even though Shimatani is on their side! Takagi and Sawa also clashed with each other during the melee.

The final entrant was Antonio Honda at Chishirodai Station. He immediately wanted to give up because he was standing out in the cold for so long. Yamato dropped his guard while listening to the story so Honda used Gongitsune to pinch him in the nipple.

The monorail was still at the Chishirodai Station so some of the wrestlers took the fight outside to the platform. Yamato, Owashi and Honda found a ladder then suddenly began singing a song from Galaxy Express 999. This lured DJ Nira out from the shadows to grab the ladder with the other three and join in with the song. Kodaka and Ueno jumped on top of the group and used the ladder to pin all of them at the same time for the three count.

Nearby Sawa hit Takao with the Shining Wizard and placed him on a table. Takagi climbed a ladder beside it and put Takao through the table with a Diving Body Press. That was enough for Takagi to eliminate him by pinfall.

The eliminations then came thick and fast on the platform. Endo did a Moonsault from the stairway railing onto Takagi and Sawa to pin both of them.

Kodaka then rolled up Endo with a School Boy to pin him with some extra help by HARASHIMA & Ueno.

Shimatani dashed from one end of the platform to the other yelling “I am Nobu!” Whatever he wanted to do didn’t happen because Ueno rolled him into a Cradle for the three count.

Kodaka went and found a tag team partner to face HARASHIMA & Ueno. It is the Chiba Monorail mascot Mono-chan! HARASHIMA was surprised to discover how easily Mono-chan overpowered him.

Kodaka tried to Brainbuster HARASHIMA down a flight of stairs but HARASHIMA reversed it! Kodaka tumbled down the steps while Ueno chased after him. When Kodaka reached the bottom it was an easy three count for Ueno.

So the match came down to HARASHIMA and Ueno as the final two. Ueno shook HARASHIMA’s hand but it was a trap to roll him into a pin. HARASHIMA got out of it and hit Ueno with a High Kick. He then hit the Somato to win the match!

The match was over but HARASHIMA was suddenly approached by an exhausted looking Takeshita. He ran the entire way from Dobotsukoen Station chasing after the monorail! Chinsuke Nakamura snuck up behind Takeshita and hit the Low Blow. Chinsuke then pinned Takeshita with a School Boy to become the new Iron Man Champion! Chinsuke ran off yelling “YeahOh!” HARASHIMA called today the best wrestling match on a type of transportation DDT has done yet.

5. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & MAO defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Laphroaig (16:25).
6. Recollect The Memories Of Danshoku Dieno! Niigata Specialty! The Compliance Presents Special Unit Confrontation!: Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda defeated Super Sasadango Machine & Makoto Oishi when Honda pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop (13:07) (Special Witness: Danshoku Dieno).

Even though today’s show was in Super Sasadango Machine’s hometown of Niigata, the focus was on Danshoku Dieno trying to get his memory back. Wearing jeans and a grey jumper, Dieno was encouraged by the other wrestlers to go kiss an audience member. Dieno instead just gave the man a friendly hug. He watched the main event and mentioned the atmosphere surrounding it felt familiar. However the match wasn’t exciting enough to keep his attention and DJ Nira came out to tell the others he fell asleep. The Compliance all tried to make the match more exciting but Nira decided to take matters into his own hands and he threw Dieno into the ring. Dieno got his head shoved into Makoto Oishi’s backside in a bid to wake him up. Dieno pointed at the wrestlers and shouted “You!” but denied he was Dieno when asked if he regained his memories. Oishi gave Dieno a Stunner and that seemed to finally work. Dieno took off his clothes revealing his Danshoku gear underneath and he gave Oishi the Danshoku Driver. Antonio Honda then pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop.

Honda & Kazusada Higuchi were rewarded with bags of rice from the local sponsor for winning the main event. Everybody welcomed Dieno back. Oishi called himself the second generation of Danshoku Dieno but really Dieno is the one and only. Oishi wanted to give a bag of rice over to Dieno but somehow he ended up dropping it onto Dieno’s head, knocking him out! When Dieno came to he asked where he was and who he was? He’s lost his memory again! Akito entered the ring concerned about Dieno because they are supposed to have a big match together at Korakuen Hall on 25th November. Akito can’t get the match he wants if Dieno doesn’t remember anything. Sasadango promised him Dieno’s amnesia will be cured by the time the match happens.

Masahiro Takanashi unveiled a new pinning move and successfully used it to beat Daisuke Sasaki. The Laphroaig is set up like a Paradise Lock but instead of rolling the opponent over, Takanashi instead spins himself around and bridges himself over the opponent to pin them while they are still twisted like a knot. The move is named after a scotch whisky. Takanashi made fun of Sasaki over the result. Sasaki’s been calling him the weakest link of Shuten-dōji so how must he feel about losing to him today? How will he feel when the weakest link beats him again to win the KO-D Openweight Title?

HARASHIMA added his concerns over Dieno’s situation and gave his best wishes for Dieno to get his memory back.

5. Warming Up Muscle “10,000,000 Yen If You Beat Virtual Pikotaro” General Battle: Virtual Pikotaro #1 (Kazuyoshi Sakai) & Virtual Pikotaro #2 (Hisaya Imabayashi) defeated Muscle Sakai & Antonio Honda when Pikotaro #1 pinned Honda after Virtual Pikotaro #3 (Kazusada Higuchi) stabbed Honda with a Pen And Anton Muscle Pen (2:24).
6. The Usual Sandman-like Match: Ken Ohka defeated Yuki Ueno, Danshoku Dieno, Mike Bailey, Jason Kincaid, Facade, Antonio Honda, Chinsuke Nakamura, Muscle Sakai, Keisuke Ishii, Tomomitsu Matsunaga, Yasu Urano, Yumehito Imanari, Shota, Choun-Shiryu, DJ Nira, MAO, Sumo Rock, Rekka, DT-YUTA and Nonoko when Ohka pinned Ueno with the Fire Spear (16:42).

A recurring theme of the show involved Ken Ohka trying to convince Yuki Ueno that he is a good wrestler. It wasn’t until the end of the main event when Ohka finally got his message across to the rookie. It was a free for all set to the “Enter Sandman” song and everyone was encouraged to drink and throw beer everywhere as if they were all The Sandman. Some of the unexpected people showing up included Mike Bailey, MAO, DT-YUTA, Nonoko, Chinsuke Nakamura (carrying a homemade US Title belt) and Sumo Rock (Kazusada Higuchi imitating The Rock). The ring eventually filled up with empty beer cans and Ohka fought his battle with Ueno while everyone else was outside. Ueno hit Ohka with the Fire Spear for a nearfall. In return Ohka gave Ueno an Avalanche Brainbuster onto the cans then hit the genuine Fire Spear to win the match. When the dust was settled, Ueno told Ohka he still thinks Ohka isn’t physically powerful or mentally serious but Ohka did win the match today thanks to the crowd’s support. Ohka really is a strong wrestler and Ueno will make it his goal to surpass him!

Super Sasadango Machine did not make an appearance on the show. Instead his former alter ego Muscle Sasaki made a return. He held a secret dark PowerPoint Presentation that was only to be seen by the people in attendance. Afterwards the Muscle Producer Amon Tsurumi was invited to come out. Hisaya Imabayashi appeared and said he too busy preparing for his match before the show so he wasn’t going to be Tsurumi today. Instead the role of Tsurumi was played by Konosuke Takeshita!

Tsurumi/Takeshita revealed that if Muscle can draw 4,000 people to Sumo Hall next February then he believes it will attract the attention of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Creative Team. It is Tsurumi’s dream to join that team. The other wrestlers asked how can they achieve the goal of 4,000 fans. Yasu Urano suggested that only pure wrestling will work but everybody in Muscle are middle-aged and not pure wrestlers. Tsurumi/Takeshita revealed his secret plan. They need a big guest to appear on the show. They need… Pikotaro! Yes, the man behind “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” is just the man they need. Unfortunately booking him is impossible so they’ll have to make do with an impersonator.

Actor and former Muscle wrestler Kazuyoshi Sakai came out dressed as Pikotaro. Tsurumi/Takeshita challenged the wrestlers to face him in a 60 second match. If they can win they will be given 10,000,000 yen! A bunch of wrestlers all tried to chase down Sakai and pin him but he survived the time limit every time. Soon a second Pikotaro appeared and it was Hisaya Imabayashi! The two impersonators agreed to team up and face the final participants, Muscle Sakai and Antonio Honda. When the two sides fought, one more Pikotaro appeared. This time it was Kazusada Higuchi! He stabbed both Sakai and Honda in the head with his Pen And Anton Muscle Pens, allowing the other Pikotaros to win the match.

As already mentioned above, Ueno wasn’t convinced that Ohka is a big deal in wrestling. Danshoku Dieno asked Ueno to watch Ohka fight against DJ Nira so he could change his mind. It was a bad match because Nira was so weak that he couldn’t put up a fight. When Ohka gave him a Snapmare into a rest hold he decided to let it go because it wasn’t worth it. Ohka apologised to everyone and left the ring. Daisuke Kiso didn’t know what was going on so he called off the match.

The Lariat Pro Wrestling match featured the theme songs of many famous Lariat users. The order of songs started off with “Power Hall”, “Sunrise” and “J”. Things then went in a different direction when “Crash” played and everyone performed Kenka Kicks. Then the music changed to “SAMURAI” and everybody did Hip Attacks. Next up was “Beautiful Flight” which made everyone do Leg Lariats. At this point everybody realised they were no longer doing Lariats so they asked for a song to get them back in track. “RAIN MAKER” came on. Suddenly Yukinori Matsui was overwhelmed with enough power to gave the Rainmaker to Keisuke Ishii! He did the post but Ishii got back up and he German Suplexed Matsui. “Miserarete” was the final song to play but at this point everybody was too hurt to continue. Ishii decided to change the rule and made it so the next person to hit a Lariat would win the match for their team. Antonio Honda rallied everyone as he prepared to do the move but he stopped and told a Gongitsune story instead. He poked everybody in the eye and eventually hit Yumehito Imanari with a Lariat to bring the match to an end.

The two authority figures in the DDT family were scheduled to fight each other in the pre-show. However both Hisaya Imabayashi and Tetsuya Koda agreed that they had no reason to do so. Neither were motivated by any dislike of the other so they had to come up with something to add some heat to the match. Imabayashi brought up how their match last year was watched by his two sons on DDT UNIVERSE. They cheered him on until he lost. That made his younger son cry. It also made his older son think he is weak ever since. Imabayashi should win so he can regain his son’s respect. He then brought up Koda’s favourite idol Maria Makino. That set off Koda and the two argued enough that they now had a reason to fight. Imabayashi hit the Backblow because it is the finishing move of his kayfabe uncle Goro Tsurumi. Koda survived it and put Imabayashi in a Katahajime to make him give up. After the match Imabayashi got a phone call from his older son. He said his dad sucks and he shouldn’t come home. He then hung up.

1. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Danshoku Dieno (Gorgeous Matsuno) defeated Brahman Shu, Brahman Kei & Gorgeous Matsuno (Danshoku Dieno) when HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno with the Somato (8:13).
2. NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Gatoh Move: Sakisama, Martha & Yoshikosama defeated Emi Sakura, Riho & Mei Suruga when Martha pinned Suruga with a Cradle (16:20).
-. Secret Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated DJ Nira by Disqualification when Nira attacked the referee (6:13).
3. Shuten-dōji Vs Hebikai Tensai!: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated JARASHIMA, Hoshihebi & Kazusada Jaguchi (w/ Poison Sawada JULIE) when KUDO pinned Hoshihebi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (11:39).

Poison Sawada JULIE made his presence felt throughout the show by poisoning several wrestlers with his Snake Magic. After every match some of the wrestlers would raise a toast and drink a beer then they could collapse because the beer was spiked! JULIE would then send his minions Hoshihebi and Kazusada Jaguchi out to grab the unconscious people and carry them backstage so they would be transformed into JULIE’s snake warriors. What was JULIE’s ultimate goal? Why, to perform a big song and dance number in the main event of course! Shuten-dōji came to the rescue and fought against JULIE’s team with a special No Tag Rule added at the last minute. JULIE interfered by using his Snake Magic until a mistaken Clothesline from Jaguchi knocked him off the apron. From there the Shuten-dōji team fought back and grabbed the victory. JULIE accepted defeat and promised to give everyone the antidote to turn them back to normal. KUDO appreciated JULIE’s decision and he thanked him for his role in making DDT bigger by adding a fantasy element to the promotion. Masahiro Takanashi also said it was fun to hear the rattles of the snake magic again. Everyone turned back to normal except for Sayaka Obihiro because there was none left for her. Nobody was bothered by that.

Yukio Sakaguchi was surprised to learn there was a secret match prepared for him against DJ Nira. Some of the antics Nira used included attacking Sakaguchi with an umbrella and sitting down everytime Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee. Nira then used a bizarre submission hold that involved making Sakaguchi fall down on one knee so Nira can put all of his weight on the other knee by standing on it. When Yukinori Matsui moved in to check if Sakaguchi would give up, Sakaguchi lifted Nira off of his knee and onto Matsui’s knee. This put Matsui in so much pain that he ended the match without a winner.

As usual NEO Biishiki-gun thought their opponents were a bunch of garbage, except for Riho. Sakisama sees something special in her that is different from everyone else. Emi Sakura told the rest of the Gatoh Move team how frustrating it is to lose. She put the blame entirely on Mei Suruga and said if she is garbage then she better get cleaned up.

Danshoku Dieno and Gorgeous Matsuno bumped heads and swapped bodies at the start of the show. So for the opener we had Dieno wrestling as Matsuno and Matsuno wrestling as Dieno. This is happening along with the usual Brahman Brothers shenanigans by the way. They hit heads again after the match and returned to normal after HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno (Dieno) with the Somato.

Last July, Saki Akai won a Battle Royal and was rewarded the role of DDT General Manager for one day. She spent months thinking up ideas until she was finally ready to put a show together in Shinjuku FACE. She thought she would be on her own but everyone in DDT was happy to help and were willing to use all of her ideas. With their support, Akai described the preparations for the show were like playing with a toy box. It wasn’t a perfect show by her own admission. Akai rated it “60 Points” (I assume out of 100) and wished she could have given herself more talk time. But she wanted the show to be like a festival and she is glad that everybody had fun.

The amount of attention Akai was getting today created some jealousy amongst the DDT roster. During the opening introductions, Akai had to wear the Amon Tsurumi afro wig that represents the GM role. While she was speaking to the audience, Danshoku Dino tried to grab the afro. Akai stopped him and said that the afro will be up for grabs at the end of the show. Whoever wears the afro will be allowed to become the GM for one day but it must be used within one year. However when the main event ended Akai never brought up the match. Dino stepped in and reminded her about it. Fearing that everyone was about to gang up on her, Akai threw down the afro and said the next person to pick it up and wear it will win the GM rights. Everyone who was involved in the show fought over the afro. Even Hisaya Imabayashi snuck in to try and get his old role back. Akai and Makoto Oishi were the last two left standing but they knocked each other out. The afro ended up on Kazuki Hirata’s head and the referee counted to three. Hirata was declared the winner!

For the main event, each wrestler was given a fashion makeover to wear for their entrances. MAO wore a pink parka, Akito wore a poncho, KUDO wore rider gear, Shunma Katsumata was in a cap and T-shirt, Soma Takao wore a kimono while carrying and umbrella and Konosuke Takeshita was covered in a fur coat. Their regular wrestling gear were all on underneath so when the match started it was business as usual. The winning team were rewarded with a hair care set from the show’s sponsor.

Although Akai didn’t have an official match on the show, her close friend Saki-sama was there with the rest of NEO Biishiki-gun to make up for it. Their opponents T2HiJoshi introduced their secret weapon Kazuko Higuchi who came out wearing bunny ears and a pink dress. Higuchi gave a rose to Yukio Saint Laurent and confessed her love to him. He hit her and threatened to stab her with an injection. Higuchi powered out of his grip and tore her dress off in anger. Higuchi went on a rampage, clearing the ring until Yukio stopped her by sticking the injection in her forehead. Saki-sama hit Kazuko Hirata with the Two Stage Face Kick to win the match. She called her opponents truly ugly, especially the one that turned into a monster halfway through the match.

Everybody in Match #3 was given glasses of champagne to drink while they wrestled. A table was set up next to the ring so they could get their drinks refilled. They all drank glasses after every kickout then argued with each other about being drunk. Jun Kasai asked Daisuke Sasaki why he didn’t bring the DDT Extreme Title with him to the ring. DJ Nira then convinced everyone to form a human tower so Kasai could hit the Pearl Harbour Splash but the tower collapsed. Tetsuya Endo tried to do a Moonsault but overshot his target and missed. Sasaki then decided to put Daisuke Kiso in the Crossface Lock while Nira did Elbow Drops to Inoue Mic. The match got so out of control that Yukinori Matsui stepped in and declared a no contest. There was no accurate match time because Mic was distracted by Nira’s attack so DDT just assumes it lasted around 15 minutes.

Aja Kong was not impressed by all of the wrestlers impersonating her in the tribute Battle Royal. She refused to participate and spent the match doing commentary at the broadcast table. She buried the match by complaining about the colour of Makoto Oishi’s face paint being wrong and the match quality dropping when Gorgeous Matsuno entered the ring. She then watched on in disbelief at Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine reenacting the time when Kong cut off Bison Kimura’s hair. Maki Ito got into the spirit of things by scaring HARASHIMA with a loud scream. When Ito took out a banana to make fun Kong’s name, Aja had enough and entered the match with a steel can in hand! Kong cleaned out the ring but Ito stood up to her and even gave her a Headbutt! Kong shrugged it off and pinned Ito with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Oishi tried to sneak attack Kong but he got the can placed over his head and he was knocked out with the Uraken for his troubles. Dino congratulated Kong for winning and asked if he could become Aja Kong II. She called him rude and knocked him out with the Uraken.

Everybody in the opening 6 Way Match was dressed as some sort of delinquent. They all tried to intimidate each other and fought dirty when it was time to wrestle. But it wasn’t all nasty. Nobuhiro Shimatani took a time out to tell Yoshiko how much he likes her. Yukio Sakaguchi interrupted the moment by attacking Yoshino. Shimatani then got singled out and was attacked by all the others until Yoshiko pinned him with the Diving Senton.

Mizuki Watase was so jealous of everybody in their main event getting their hair and make-up done that he went and got a makeover too. All it led to was Daiki Shimomura playing with Watase’s hair while they wrestled.

Match #6 went away from the ring as the wrestlers all wanted to go on some rides while they fought each other. The first ride they found wasn’t active. The second one they found was and they punched each other while enjoying the ride.

DJ Nira interfered in Match #5 to save Yoshihiko from an NωA Super Power Bomb. He hit Makoto Oishi with the Rocket Punch allowing Danshoku Dino & Ken Ohka to set up the finish.

Toru Owashi and Kazuki Hirata were the last two wrestlers in the Battle Royal. After trading Cradles back and forth both of them ended up pinning each other at the same time. That meant was no official winner of the match. However both Owashi and Hirata complained over the result. Both of them desperately wanted to win so they could be transformed into a girl for the Ring☆Dream game. The game’s producer felt for them both and decided that Owashi and Hirata will get their own characters after all.
