Umeda was so proud of his match with MAO in the Maji Manji final that he asked him to challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles together.

So far both episodes of the show have featured Danshoku Dino getting hit in the ass with a baseball bat by the weekly guest. He tried to attack the last guest Ririka Suto but Miyu Yamashita rescued her. That’s the set up for Dino versus Yamashita with the same baseball bat stipulation.

3. Maji Manji Tournament – Semi-Final: Kota Umeda defeated Maki Ito with a Camel Clutch (4:24).
4. Tradition Of The Soul ~ Loser Gets Ketsu Bat Match: Naomi Yoshimura defeated Danshoku Dino with a Lariat (6:07).
5. HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Mike Bailey defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Keisuke Ishii & Antonio Honda when HARASHIMA pinned Honda with the Somato (8:28).
6. ALL OUT Vs Irie-gun: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Watase pinned Katsumata with a Tiger Suplex (9:40).
7. Maji Manji Tournament – Final: Kota Umeda defeated MAO with the Umeda Driver (6:29).

Kota Umeda is the winner of the Maji Manji tournament! He smashed through Maki Ito and then MAO to win a significant role on upcoming episodes of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”. His future plans were quickly laid out for all to see. First Umeda and MAO decided to team up and challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles on 1st May. Kazusada Higuchi welcomes the challenge and is excited to face an awesome combination of young power. Then Umeda was told he was getting a special match at Korakuen Hall on 29th April. He will be facing Go Shiozaki! Umeda even got to stand face to face with Shiozaki and slapped his hand away when he asked for a handshake.

It’s official, Mizuki Watase is on Shigehiro Irie’s side. The two worked well together and were strong enough as a pairing to beat Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata. Irie thanked Watase for sticking by him and said he will count on him from now on. Takeshita is unsure about how he can take on the destructive power of Irie’s moveset, particularly his Traffic Accident tackle. It’s a move that is hard for him to see coming.

At the end of the show Danshoku Dino, dressed in a suit and tie held a public press conference to announce he will be running for a city council position in Kanagawa later this year. Dino said that he cannot become a legend in DDT alone. He will have to go into politics to become a legend. Dino described himself as a pure white heart that wants to change the local government. He then used his campaign speech to make fun of Sanshiro Takagi’s failed political run in the same city way back in 1996. This sparked Takagi to run into the ring and attack Dino. When he left, Dino promised to bring “Love & Peace” to eliminate violence from the world. He asked for the fans to vote for him and bowed.

Yuki Ueno doesn’t understand why the audience voted for MAO instead of him in their tiebreaker. But he still blames himself for not being able to beat MAO within the allocated time limit. Maki Ito was more emotional over the result of her match. She felt she was still winning even when she was losing because she sensed the audience’s support for her throughout. So in a way she both won and lost today. She thinks a good thing about pro wrestling is there is no gender discrimination. Ito gets to fight anyone, man or woman!

The 6-Man Tag went a little out of control when Higuchi put Mike Bailey through the broadcast table with the Fire Thunder Driver! The spot didn’t effect the result though as Bailey’s partner HARASHIMA pinned Antonio Honda in the ring quickly afterwards.

Still feeling the pain and embarrassment from last week, Danshoku Dino had a trap in place to help him beat Naomi Yoshimura. He positioned Makoto Oishi outside the ring on one side and gave him instructions to reach in and trip Yoshimura by the legs at every opportunity. The plan backfired when Oishi mistook Dino for Yoshimura and tripped him. Yoshimura grabbed the baseball bat, beat Dino with it for a bit and pinned him with a Lariat. This week’s guest was Ririka Suto from NMB48 and it was her duty to hit Dino in the ass with the baseball bat because Dino lost. She did so but Dino threatened to do the same to Suto until Miyu Yamashita ran down and saved her. Dino then challenged Yamashita to a Ketsu Bat match at the next episode on 1st May.

Daisuke Sasaki announced he is bringing in a new pet for DAMNATION on 1st May. He has been feeling lonely without Shuji Ishikawa by his side lately. Ishikawa is too busy competing in the Champion Carnival. Sasaki warned all of DDT’s “incompetent B class garbage wrestlers” that there is a traitor among them!

Mad Paulie was back to his normal self today. He and Toru Owashi joined forces to give Daiki Shimomura a Double Choke Slam. Owashi convinced Paulie to climb the turnbuckles for a Reverse Splash. He then pinned Shimomura with La Magistral Cradle while Paulie was climbing.

Rekka has difficulty with landing his new Taiwan Elbow Drop move on target. It took several attempts at the move until he finally hit Kouki Iwasaki with it. He still lost.

*V1 for Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda.

The main event title match was entirely an DNA affair. Kota Umeda credited Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda for the victory and he thanked Takeda for coming over from Triple Six to wrestle in DDT and DNA. The team advertised the first DNA show in Osaka that will take place on 16th July.

Both Daisuke Sasaki and KUDO wanted to get in the way of Konosuke Takeshita and Shigehiro Irie’s situation during the 4 Way Match. When Takeshita and Irie did get to fight each other, Irie ended up getting the upper hand. At one point Irie gave Takeshita a Piledriver on top of Sasaki! KUDO missed the Diving Double Knee Drop to Sasaki and both of them were hit by Irie’s Running Cannonball. Irie got the win with the Beast Bomber to Sasaki. He told Takeshita afterwards he will take the KO-D Openweight Title from him by all means necessary on 29th April. Takeshita said he cannot lose the title to somebody who does not love DDT. He promised the Osaka crowd he will return to the city as the champion still.

HARASHIMA had to put up a bigger fight than usual when facing Mad Paulie given Paulie’s current state. Paulie brawled around ringside wearing a collar and leash around his neck. HARASHIMA grabbed the leash and pulled it through the ropes to choke Paulie against the corner post with the collar. Paulie overpowered HARASHIMA with splashes and a Fisherman Buster. But HARASHIMA recovered and knocked out Paulie with the Somato to win. He called “Red Paulie” strong but HARASHIMA is ready to challenge for the DDT Extreme Title so nobody could stop him today.

Keisuke Ishii is getting ready for a shot at Ken Ohka and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He feels that Ohka has been in bad condition recently and thinks he has calmed down from his “Major Wrestling” push for Ganbare☆Wrestling. In fact, Ishii said Okha has become weak ever since he got married! Ganpuro wrestler and DDT cameraman Yumehito Imanari got into an argument with Ishii over his opinions during his post-match interview.

Kazuki Hirata gave Yuni a Low Blow to set him up for the Miracle Cradle finish. Hirata was thrilled to win a match over the kid. The crowd booed him so he tried to win them back over by dancing. Yuni stopped him with a Hurricanrana and told him they will continue to battle against each other.

Yukio Sakaguchi was originally supposed to be on this show but will miss it due to a scheduling conflict. Saki Akai takes his place.

Mad Paulie is now in a red rage because of the springtime. Daisuke Sasaki’s anger over HARASHIMA getting the next DDT Extreme Title shot might also have something to do with it. Paulie can only be calmed down and controlled in this condition with porno magazines.

Yuni is jealous of Nicholas, the ten year old boy who won the Raw Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania last weekend. It didn’t help when Sanshiro Takagi joked about searching for Nicholas’s booking details for a tour.

8. DDT LIVE!! Maji Manji Broadcast Commemoration Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Kazusada Higuchi ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).

A new project for DDT had its debut today. “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” is a live weekly show airing on the AbemaTV streaming service during the “golden hours” of the primetime TV schedule. To mark the occasion, DDT headlined the episode with a match between Konosuke Takeshita and Kazusada Higuchi. The match ended in a 20 minute draw with both guys spent. Takeshita said he didn’t want to treat the match like an exhibition. He will always be ready to defend the KO-D Openweight Title. However, he would also like to challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Higuchi shares the same idea in regards to defending his own title and challenging for the other. They both shook hands.

When Higuchi left, Takeshita closed out the show with a speech until Shigehiro Irie interrupted him. He called Takeshita a wonderful champion and it would please Irie greatly to win the title from him on 29th April in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita doesn’t like the disrespect Irie showed by coming out after he and Higuchi just wrestled. He hesitated to shake Irie’s hand but when he did, Irie gave him the thumbs down instead and left.

The first round of the Maji Manji tournament filled up the second half of the show. The matches only had a five minute time limit and tiebreakers were determined by a viewer poll. Yuki Ueno and Kota Umeda were able to win their matches but MAO and Maki Ito needed the audience to get them through to the next round. The semi-finals on 17th April will be Ueno Vs MAO and Ito Vs Umeda.

This time Saki Akai was able to avoid getting her face licked by Priscilla Kelly.

Mad Paulie is still in his red rage state due to the springtime. However Yuko Miyamoto escaped from the Paulie Buster and escaped with the win by pinning Paulie with the Gannosuke Clutch. Miyamoto told HARASHIMA after the match that he promises not to go extreme for their DDT Extreme Title match. But when they shook hands, Miyamoto gave HARASHIMA a cheap shot then struck him over the back with a chair! Miyamoto said he will no longer be associated with Smile Squash until after their match ends. They cannot team together when they are meant to be opponents. HARASHIMA understands and there are no hard feelings over the situation. He can only promise to do his best.

Idol Moga Mogami was the special guest commentator for the episode. She had never watched pro wrestling before this show and did not even know the existence of DDT. Naomi Yoshimura and Akira Jo were placed nearby as her bodyguards for the evening. After the first match of the broadcast, Danshoku Dino chased Nobuhiro Shimatani with a baseball bat. When Shimatani escaped, Dino grabbed Mogami and pulled her into the ring. Yoshimura & Jo rescued Mogami and beat up Dino for touching her. They allowed Mogami to strike Dino in the ass with the baseball bat as punishment for his actions.

DDT “SUNDAY KASUKABIAN! 2018”, 08/04/2018
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
192 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Daiki Shimomura when Ueno pinned Shimomura with a Diving Body Press (12:16).
2. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Priscilla Kelly when Sakaguchi submitted Hirata with a Modified Arm Choke (7:38).
3. KUDO defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Backspin Kick (7:07).
4. Keisuke Ishii defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Kneel Kick (11:01).
5. Mike Bailey & MAO defeated Danshoku Dino & Antonio Honda when Bailey pinned Honda after the Michinoku Tornado Driver (12:09).
6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Mizuki Watase when Akito pinned Watase with a European Clutch (19:32).
7. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi when Sasaki pinned Oishi with the Vietnam Driver II (11:21).

Mad Paulie appeared wearing red face paint instead of his usual colours. He trampled through the opposition and could only be controlled when Daisuke Sasaki pulled out an erotic magazine. Whenever Sasaki wanted Paulie to go on a rampage again, he took the magazine away. After the match Sasaki explained that Paulie becomes like this during the springtime and he discovered only erotic books can calm him down. Maybe Sasaki’s anger about HARASHIMA getting the next DDT Extreme Title shot transferred over to Paulie and caused this change to happen.

Konosuke Takeshita told Kazusada Higuchi that he will show him serious pro wrestling when they headline the first episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” on Tuesday. The two faced off with their championship belts.

Today’s match for Danshoku Dino and Antonio Honda was a chance for them to be nostalgic about their past. Dino said it’s been ten years since they lived together. They spent their days sharing the same room and playing on a guitar to pass the time. Honda had no memory of this. He gained some recollection during the match but it was just so he could use it to distract his opponents for an eye poke. Mike Bailey & MAO ended up winning the match with a Michinoku Tornado Driver/Unified Wing Angel. Bailey surprised MAO backstage by revealing he’s been learning Japanese and giving a few post-match comments in that language.

Priscilla Kelly made things a bit awkward by licking a few of the other wrestlers during their match. Kazuki Hirata scared her when he took out his Hirata GO! glasses but she told her that in DDT, dancing is also pro wrestling. They danced together until Yukio Sakaguchi came in and beat up Hirata for the finish.
