Yasu Urano Becomes A Freelancer, Golden Week Schedule, Ganpuro Nonsense

April 28, 2017

Yasu Urano announced yesterday that he will no longer be affiliated with DDT and will be going freelance at the end of May. Urano has been wrestling for 17 years and has been with DDT for the last ten. He wants to expand his horizons with the remaining time he has left as a wrestler. He has no concrete plan for the future but there are many wrestlers out there that he has never fought before. Sanshiro Takagi encouraged him to consider wrestling abroad. He also suggested Urano to set up his own group and call it either Socrates or Wrestle Socrates because Urano is a wrestling philosopher. Urano had already gone over his decision with the rest of Smile Squash before going public. HARASHIMA didn’t believe him the first time he was told. The second time Urano told him he assured that he wasn’t quitting pro wrestling. As for Soma Takao, Urano didn’t know what to tell him so he just sent him a LINE message saying “Sorry”. He will still be a part of Smile Squash until he goes freelance but what will happen to that relationship afterwards is anyone’s guess. Urano still intends to make appearances for DDT here and there. He confirmed that he will a part of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” on 20th August.

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

3. IRON PRIEST Vs Gingin Boys: FUMA & Hagane Vs YO-HEY & Kenshin Chikano
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Takumi Tsukamoto & SAGAT Vs Gunso & Shoichi Uchida
5. Super Pro Wrestling Ring Wars 2017 ~Japan Vs Trans-Am~ True Patriotic Pinfall: Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Tanaka
6. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Yusuke Kubo Vs Dick Togo
7. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Yuji Okabayashi
8. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is boasting of his abilities with his clear, easy to understand English spoken in an obviously American accent. He call himself the best stripper and best wrestler in the world with a perfect body that Ryota Nakatsu cannot beat. Nakatsu doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Ryuichi’s mouth. He is convinced it is really Ryuichi Kawamura playing a character. Regardless it is Nakatsu’s desire to win the Union MAX Title that drives him. He watched the belt be defended in Union Pro but never progressed far enough to challenge for the title before Union closed down.

Isami Kodaka has two matches to prepare for on the show. He will be the first opponent for the debuting rookie Takato Nakano. Then later in the show he faces the Big Japan golem Yuji Okabayashi in a first time singles match. When thinking up strategies for the match Kodaka came to the conclusion that it will be impossible to beat Okabayashi in a straightforward wrestling match. With that said he is still practicing a lot of different ideas to try and win.

The Japan Vs America rivalry continues further down the card. Ryuichi Sekine doesn’t care if the political relationship between the two countries is currently nice and friendly. He thinks his 6-Man Tag match against the Trans-Am ★ Family will be the biggest fight of the century. He wants to this match to show all the great things about the Japanese. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi responded that he loves Japan. He loves the beautiful scenery, the delicious food, the pretty women in kimonos and Tokyo Disneyland. The only thing he does not like about Japan are three particular people: Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe! Japan can improve as a country if those three people learn to speak English. So Hiroshi asked for the match to be a True Patriotic Pinfall match. The match can only be won by pinfall and the wrestlers have to cover their opponent with their country’s flag on top of them. Sekine is against the stipulation because his finisher is a submission move. The rule may also backfire on the Trans-Am ★ Family if the rumour that Trans-Am ★ Tanaka is really submission specialist Minoru Tanaka turns out to be true.

During the press conference to promote Ganpuro’s upcoming events, Minoru Fujita briefly dropped by to give Ohka a gift he bought in Shinjuku.

Yumehito Imanari is training for the Double Sweet Death Match by eating a very sweet cinnamon roll he purchased last week. The downside to this is the roll is already a bit mouldy.

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

April 23, 2017

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TEMPURAMANJU~”, 23/04/2017
Nagano City Arts Center
322 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Antonio Honda & Mike Bailey defeated KUDO & Saki Akai when Honda pinned Akai with the Diving Fist Drop (11:00).
2. Smile Squash Vs DNA!: HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Yasu Urano defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Shunma Katsumata & Guanchulo when HARASHIMA pinned Guanchulo with the Somato (11:07).
3. Number One In DDT Most Popular Decision Battle!: Shigehiro Irie defeated Mizuki Watase with the Beast Bomber (15:03).
4. Yoshihiro Takayama & Keisuke Ishii defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Ishii pinned Takanashi with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (13:21).
5. DDT Nagano Sales Manager, Toru Owashi Local Triumph ~ T2Hide Vs World’s Cutest Hips: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Royce Isaacs when Hirata pinned Oishi with the One Shot Miracle Cradle (13:20).
6. Takeshita & Akito Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Endo pinned Takeshita with the Kasadora (15:30).

Once again Tetsuya Endo had Konosuke Takeshita’s number. This time he pinned the KO-D Openweight Champion with a flash Kasadora after spending the match attacking Takeshita’s left leg. Endo continued to insult Takeshita and belittle his title run until Daisuke Sasaki of all people told him to stop. Sasaki politely apologised to Takeshita for Endo’s rude behaviour. It was only a ruse and Sasaki then joined in with the insults and charged at the champion. Takeshita knocked Sasaki down with a Lariat and had a staredown with Endo afterwards.

The International Gay Factory went into the Nagano City Arts Center with the goal of transforming it into a gay museum. With Makoto Oishi on their side today they were also going by the team name World’s Cutest Hips. The biggest defence standing against them was Kazuki Hirata and the rest of T2Hide. Hirata demanded “Tokyo GO!” to be played but it never did so Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi had to sing it a cappella again. Danshoku Dino and Royce Isaacs attacked them to stop the singing. Those four wrestlers would soon get stuck in the corner thanks to a Hell Gate gone wrong. Long story short Takagi & Owashi had their arms trapped by Isaac’s Miracle Ass. They were still able to sing though and Hirata used that to dance his way to victory over Oishi. Peace has been kept for the Arts Center thanks to Hirata!

A key discovery may have been made in the feud between Yukio Sakaguchi and Yoshihiro Takayama. Sakaguchi’s use of the Sleeper Hold seems to be effective against Takayama but he hasn’t been able to go all the way with it yet. Today Sakaguchi locked in the move but Keisuke Ishii broke it up. Ishii then turned his attention to Masahiro Takanashi and ended up pinning him. Sakaguchi said he is ready to strangle Takayama when their KO-D Tag Team Titles match finally takes place. Takayama isn’t scared. In fact he’s bored with his current situation.

Shigehiro Irie was given a gift certificate by the show’s sponsor for winning his match against Mizuki Watase. He declined a handshake from Watase after the match but it was so he could hug him instead.


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

April 22, 2017

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSUKYO~”, 22/04/2017
Kyoto KBS Hall
366 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi with the Endless Waltz (9:45).
2. 3 Way Match: Keisuke Ishii defeated KUDO and Shunma Katsumata when Ishii pinned Katsumata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (8:47).
3. Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mike Bailey when Hirata pinned Irie with the One Shot Miracle Cradle (11:30).
*Kazuki Hirata wins Shigehiro Irie’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
4. Yoshihiro Takayama, Danshoku Dino & Royce Isaacs defeated Toru Owashi, Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda when Takayama pinned Honda with an Armbar (15:10).
5. Saki Akai, The Second Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai defeated HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Syoko Nakajima when Akai pinned Nakajima with the Rookie Award (14:13).
6. Takeshita & Akito Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Endo pinned Takeshita with the Shooting Star Press (17:11).

Tetsuya Endo’s Shooting Star Press was at its most effective yet when he used the move to pin Konosuke Takeshita. Endo recently adopted the move as his new finisher and showed everyone that it is strong enough to beat the KO-D Openweight Champion. Endo called Takeshita a miserable champions and then said he will easily win the belt from him at Korakuen Hall next week.

Saki Akai got to enjoy her homecoming match with Shuten-dōji. When she won the match she told the audience she never thought she would return to Kyoto as a pro wrestler but she was very happy to win the match with her “older brothers”. The entire team then celebrated in the ring with some sake, the first glass of many for the rest of the night.

Danshoku Dino is putting together a new group called the International Gay Factory, or IGF for short. Royce Isaacs and his Miracle Ass is Dino’s first signing. Isaacs demonstrated his Miracle Ass by using it to split apart a pair of chopsticks before the match began. When they won their match Dino told everyone that the legend of Isaacs began today in Kyoto. It will help Dino accomplish his plans for IGF.

Kazuki Hirata surprised everyone by pinning Shigehiro Irie to win his Right To Challenge Contract. The result came when everyone in the match danced then Irie tried to interrupt it with the Beast Bomber. Hirata ducked the Bomber and rolled up Irie with the One Shot Miracle Cradle for the three count. When Hirata got over the shock of winning he realised that by holding this contract, he cannot be banished from Japan if T2Hide lose to NωA next week! Hirata promises not only to hold on to the contract but also win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Then he can move on to becoming a singles champion when he cashes in!

5. PREMIUM GIG – Young Hunters Vs Father Hunters: Kazushi Sakuraba & Kendo Kashin Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Mike Bailey
6. MAIN GIG – The Main Eventer Of NEXT: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Shunma Katsumata

DNA has been labelling Kazushi Sakuraba & Kendo Kashin as the “Young Hunters”, playing off of Sakuraba’s famous “Gracie Hunter” nickname from Pride. He isn’t too fond of the name because he is not fighting in DNA with a hunting mindset. But whatever, he is putting all of his focus into the match. Kind of. The information he learned from his upcoming opponents isn’t really helpful. All he knows is Kouki Iwasaki has long hair and he hasn’t looked up Mike Bailey yet. Kendo Kashin has kept himself silent over accusations that he was the man in the lion mask who attacked Iwasaki at “DNA EP.31”.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

Daisuke Sasaki has taken a liking to DAMNATION’s newest ally Heidi Katrina. The British wrestler appeared unexpectedly at DAMNATION’s self produced show over the weekend and dominated her opponent Nobuhiro Shimatani. Since then she revealed her goal in Japan is to defeat DDT’s top female wrestler Saki Akai. Sasaki is trying to keep his cool around Katrina but cracks began to show during a press conference. He told Amon Tsurumi to shut up when he was asked if he was going to propose to Katrina like he did to Candice LeRae. He then got angry at Guanchulo for translating the questions and answers for Katrina. He took over the task by himself. When Katrina described him as a “wild, strong and exciting” Sasaki translated it into “very kind, very strong and a lovely man” who she wants to marry. The conference then got physical when Masahiro Takanashi criticised Sasaki’s inappropriate translations. Katrina grabbed Takanashi by the jaw and threatened to hurt him until Akai shoved her back.

The winner of the 5 Way Match gets a DDT Extreme Title shot on 21st May.

All aboard! DDT teamed up with Choshi Electric Rail for their latest Street Wrestling experiment. Can you do a pro wrestling free for all inside a moving train? Sure you can! The train journey began in Nakano Town Station and do a full circle around the railway line. The match itself was a Falls Count Anywhere Battle Royal with new wrestlers entering the train at a different station. Pinfalls, submissions and being ejected from the train and left behind at a station were the intended ways to eliminate the opponents. Sanshiro Takagi, Rekka and HARASHIMA were the first entrants to start the match. The three did what they could while they adjusted to the cramped surroundings.

Nobuhiro Shimatani and Yasu Urano entered at Choshi Station. They were already fighting each other at the platform when the train arrived. Urano threw Shimatani against one of the railings and directed the others to do a Train Attack. Keisuke Ishii entered at Nishiinkajima Station and went through an athletic back and forth with Urano. When he switched focus to Takagi, Urano took the opportunity to low blow Shimatani.

The crowd gasped when the train arrived at Kimigahama Station because Mad Paulie was there waiting for them. He clubbed Ishii with a forearm until Urano leapt on his back and applied a Sleeper Hold. Shimatani hit a Standing Shooting Star on Ishii and pinned him while everyone else piled on top. It was ruled that Shimatani gets credited for eliminating Ishii so that means he won Ishii’s Right To Challenge Contract! As this was going on Paulie countered Urano’s Sleeper Hold into an Argentine Backbreaker. He walked up and down the train with Urano in the move until Urano gave up.

At Inabaru Station, Guanchulo was chased onto the train by Danshoku Dino and Royce Isaacs. Rekka tried to stop Dino because it is illegal to grope people on trains. Dino gave him a Lip Lock and the Danshoku Nightmare to eliminated him. NωA were next to enter at Ogawa Station. They sang and dance on the platform while Takagi and HARASHIMA fought over next to them. An old lady on the platform waved everyone off as the train departed. Dino and Isaacs double teamed HARASHIMA and tried to convince Paulie to join in but he attacked them instead. When the train stopped at an empty Kimigahama Station, Dino pushed Paulie out and the train left without him.

Back in the train there was a Headcsissor link formed from one end of the train to the other. Takagi turned everyone over with a Boston Crab link with Isaacs suffering the most at the other end. Isaacs reached over and grabbed a railing which in this situation counted as a Rope Break. Isaacs was then accidentaly given a Lip Lock when Shimatani ducked Dino’s affections. Shimatani then gave Isaacs a School Boy to eliminate him and win his second Right To Challenge Contract!

Saki Akai and Lady Beard got in the train at Kaiokajima Station and they put Shunma Katsumata and MAO in separate Cobra Twists. HARASHIMA grabbed Akai and put her in the Romero Special. Dino used Katsumata and MAO as stepping stones so he could go in position for a human pyramid Hell Gate. Makoto Oishi used it to great effect by pushing Takagi face first into Dino’s backside followed by a successful pinfall. Oishi and Dino then joined forces to form a Revolving Hell Gate on Akai. Katsumata pinned her for the elimination.

The final entrant appeared at Kurosui Station. It was Kazusada Higuchi wearing his sumo mawashi. Lady Beard squared up to him for a Sumo match but Higuchi squeezed him in a Bearhug until he tapped out. All three NωA members combined tried to push Higuchi back but Higuchi shoved them out of the train at Choshi Station for a triple elimination. HARASHIMA looked like he was about to join in the sumo fun but he threw kicks at Higuchi instead. Higuchi rushed in and was knocked down by a High Kick. HARASHIMA then rolled over with a Jackknife to pin Higuchi. HARASHIMA shouted that he won the duel because “This is pro wrestling.”

On the other side of the train Guanchulo pinned Shimatani with a Backslide Pin, winning one of the RTC Contracts. Shimatani still holds the other one so he wasn’t too upset over it. With HARASHIMA and Guanchulo as the final two wrestlers in the match, the train wasn’t far away from its final destination. HARASHIMA hit Guanchulo with a Buzzsaw Kick and followed with the Somato. HARASHIMA won the Train Pro Wrestling Match and gets an RTC Contract as his prize! The train arrived back at Nakano Town Station and HARASHIMA thanked the 40 fans for coming to support them.
