6. From Showa To Heisei And To The Reiwa! Matsuyama Famous Special 8-Man Tag Match That Keeps Running With The Times: Tatsumi Fujinami, Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Yoshiaki Yatsu, Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya & Rising HAYATO when Fujinami submitted Naya with the Dragon Sleeper (12:27).

*V2 for DAMNATION.
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) defeated Yukio Sakaguchi with the Shooting Star Press (14:31).
*V3 for Tetsuya Endo.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s roaring rampage of revenge has been stopped dead by Tetsuya Endo. The only times Sakaguchi was able to put Endo in a Sleeper Hold was once over the ropes and a second time quickly afterwards. Endo made his opponent even more angry when he hit a Low Kick to Sakaguchi’s back. Sakaguchi responded in kind. It took a combination of a Sit Down Power Bomb, the Swinging Torture Rack Bomb and a Handspring Leg Lariat to put Sakaguchi in danger. Endo then finished him off with the Shooting Star Press.

The “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July is now set. Endo will be defending the KO-D Openweight Title against his biggest enemy Konosuke Takeshita! That is unless Sanshiro Takagi cashes in the last remaining Right To Challenge Gauntlet and wins the belt before that. Takagi says he will cash in while Endo is in a perfect state. Takeshita is happy to wait a little bit and let those two fight over the title if it happens before “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. Endo called out Takeshita for being Takagi’s favourite and he promised to beat Takeshita inside Ota Ward Gymnasium.

It was a fair effort from Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto but not enough to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Donaruto’s lewd exploits kept DAMNATION off their game. Stripping down to a gold thong and diving onto people can do that to an opponent. He wiped out Daisuke Sasaki with a Quebrada while Hirata and Soma Takao fought over the Viagra Driver. Takao got the upper hand and pinned Hirata with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb. DAMNATION’s next title defence will be at “WRESTLE PETER PAN” but Sasaki said they will decide who they will fight and also where. DAMNATION wants to decide everything by their ways.

ALL OUT had the honour of teaming with Tatsumi Fujinami for a special 8-Man Tag against a diverse team lead by Yoshiaki Yatsu. It was the first time Takeshita and Fujinami were in the ring together since their singles match back in 2013. Takagi tried adding lucha libre to the match and Rising HAYATO stepped in to help however he could. Yukio Naya stepped up to both Fujinami and Takeshita but the experience level was far too high for him to overcome. Fujinami would put him in the Dragon Sleeper to get the submission victory.

HARASHIMA was in a thankful mood as always. He was thankful to Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura for their part in DISASTER BOX’s victory today. He is also thankful for the fans for coming to see today’s big show in Matsuyama.

It was expected that Ryutaro Watanabe would lose to Hideki Suzuki but he went down fighting. He fought out of Suzuki’s Double Arm Suplex but Suzuki kicked him repeatedly until the referee stopped the match. Suzuki’s advice for Watanabe is to never run away if he wants to keep wrestling.

Saki Akai declined to shake hands with Mina Shirakawa until after their match. Akai rolled away from a Casadora and hit a High Kick, setting up the match winning Quetzalcoatl.

There were a lot of Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes on this show. After the opening match Danshoku Dieno was chased into the ring by Hiroshi Yamato and Pulp Bonjin. Dieno fought them off but Nobuhiro Shimatani snuck in and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Then in the Battle Royal the belt went from Shimatani to Mad Paulie to Asuka to the eventual match winner Makoto Oishi. The governor of Ehime Tokihiro Nakamura entered the ring for a congratulatory photo with Oishi but that was interrupted by an attack by Asuka and Toru Owashi. Governor Nakamura then surprised everyone by jumping on top of Oishi to become the new champion! Dieno chased the governor away then later came back to the ring with the belt, informing everyone he had won the championship backstage. Oishi gave Dieno a Low Blow and pinned him. Then Owashi gave Oishi a Choke Slam for the final title change of the day.

Former Shuten-dōji members Masahiro Takanashi and Kota Umeda faced off as one of Umeda’s final matches before he leaves DDT next month. Takanashi went for a bunch of Cradles until Umeda dropped him with the Umeda Driver.

ARENA Shimo-kitazawa

1. Yoshimura Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Guts Ishijima Vs Masked Mystery

Ganpro is holding a special small scale show for DDT UNIVERSE members at a bar called ARENA Shimo-kitazawa. The venue is home for a tiny indy outfit called Yoshimura Pro Wrestling. I looked them up and found a match between an MMA guy against a swing with Kuishinbo Kamen as the referee. So this is right up my alley.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019”, 30/06/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Megaton Class One Match: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Yukio Naya

The new signing Yukio Naya is already targeting another big boy in the company.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”, 15/07/2019

DDT is looking for various companies to sponsor the show. Their first announced sponsorship is with a tax accounting firm for the dark match. It was the firm’s idea to sponsor the dark match because it has never been done before. They hope the match will be just as exciting as the main event.

Yoshiaki Yatsu, Joey Ryan, Chris Brookes and Mike Bailey will be on the show.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda Vs X
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

It was announced today that Kota Umeda will be leaving DDT when his contract ends on 21st July. The reason is Umeda will be concentrating on working for his family’s business in his home of Kumamoto. The 24 year old will not be able to wrestle while carrying this responsibility. His family is important to him so he is choosing them over pro wrestling. Umeda originally asked to retire as a wrestler but Sanshiro Takagi convinced him to resign from DDT instead. Umeda is so young that he may find the opportunity to wrestle again somewhere down the line. For example DDT runs a show in Kumamoto once a year (this year’s show is coming up in August) so maybe that spot could always be available for him to wrestle in front of his home crowd. Umeda is grateful to Takagi for the advice he gave him and promises to do his best for the last two months of his contract.

Hideki Suzuki, Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio, Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey will be on the show.

Turns out he likes what he sees in DDT and thinks this is where he should be. DDT has a good relationship with Real Japan so the deal was easy to make. Naya is the grandson of famous sumo wrestler and 48th Yokozuna Taiho Koki. He is 25 years old, 201cm tall, weighs 130kg and has two years of experience under his belt. Naya would like to wrestle the other heavyweights in DDT like Kazusada Higuchi and Yuki Iino. He also wants to participate in the Rojo Wrestling outdoor shows. After all he wants to be in DDT to wrestle in DDT matches.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTOME~”, 08/06/2019
Tochigi Ashikaga Citizen Plaza Small Hall

1. Tomomitsu Matsunaga Marunage Match ~ Matsunaga Style Costume Change Match: Tomomitsu Matsunaga, Masahiro Takanashi & Antonio Honda Vs Keisuke Ishii, Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno

The Marunage matches have given DDT wrestlers the chance to get more creative. Tomomitsu Matsunaga wants the wrestlers in his match to wear different gear. He suggested Yuki Ueno to wear long tights and Keisuke Ishii to wear short talents for example.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAKAASHIGANI~”, 09/06/2019
Shizuoka Kira Messe Numazu

1. MAO Marunage Match ~ Falls Count Anywhere Tag Match: MAO & Sanshiro Takagi Vs Hiroshi Yamato & Shunma Katsumata

MAO noticed that Hiroshi Yamato has been appearing in loads of different wrestling shows lately and wants to include him in DDT’s trademark Fall Count Anywhere match. He wants Katsumata to join in too because his emerging Hardcore style fits in with the stipulation. Finally MAO has decided to team with Sanshiro Takagi just to see what will happen between them. Kid playing with matches next to dynamite, folks.

DDT “SUIYO KASUKABIAN! 2019”, 12/06/2019
Saitama Kasukabe Hall

1. Daisuke Sasaki Marunage Match ~ Nerima Japan Wrestling Ring Flag Fried Series 3rd Round In Kasukabe: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Nerima Sting

Hang on a minute…

DDT & SENDAI GIRLS “ALL OUT X SENDAI GIRL’S PRO-WRESTLING”, 24/06/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Mika Iwata Vs Akito
2. DASH Chisako Vs Shunma Katsumata
3. Chihiro Hashimoto Vs Yuki Iino
4. Meiko Satomura Vs Konosuke Takeshita
5. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Meiko Satomura, Chihiro Hashimoto & DASH Chisako (c) Vs ALL OUT X, X & X

The feud between ALL OUT and the Sendai Girls is getting its own event! In order to settle this rivalry completely, they agreed to four separate singles matches followed by a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence as the headliner. The ALL OUT team has not been determined yet so could they have a surprise in store for the champions? What if Space Monkey comes in as a swerve?!?

Meiko Satomura has promised that the Sendai Girls will be fighting with all of their strength until they and their opponents will burn out. Konosuke Takeshita likes that because ALL OUT’s theme is that they use their full power in the ring. Yuki Iino is still embarrassed that he was pinned by Chihiro Hashimoto’s German Suplex to lose the trios titles. Katsumata’s match with DASH Chisako is under regular rules but he hopes it can be fought like a Hardcore bout. Akito said he doesn’t know much about Mika Iwata other than she does kicks. He’s used to wrestling against kickers in DDT so he thinks she doesn’t have much of a chance against him.

6. Road To WRESTLE MATUSYAMANIA! Special Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Mizuki Watase
7. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X

Four are left in the King Of DDT and there is plenty of history to be found in the semi-final match-ups. Kazusada Higuchi has always treated Konosuke Takeshita as a strong opponent and this time won’t be any different. Takeshita is aware that the occasion may trigger something in Higuchi to change him into something even stronger so his plan is not to trigger it. HARASHIMA and Soma Takao were allies in Smile Squash until Takao betrayed HARASHIMA to join DAMNATION. Takao wants nothing more than to win this tournament and fight for the KO-D Openweight Title in Ota Ward Gymnasium because he was born and raised in Ota.

Even though Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto will be getting a KO-D Tag Team Titles match next month, Hirata is unsure if the combined power of himself and Donaruto can work. He asked for a Handicap Match against Daisuke Sasaki to test the team out and determine if they are good enough to become champions.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “SHANGRI-LA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Tokyo BumB Sports Culture Museum Multi Studio

1. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Real GUTS Army 2nd Round: Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Guts Ishijima & Shota
2. PochaJo Another Story ~Encounter With The Female Version Of Atsushi Onita~: Yumehito Imanari Vs Miss Mongol
3. Inevitability Or Fate’s Mischief? Team Drift And DNA Clash In Ganpro!: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase

Guts Ishijima has created a Guts World revival in a bid to unite the independent scene under his influence. Ken Ohka doesn’t trust Ishijima’s ability to do that given his reputation of quitting and failing many of his previous projects.

Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Shuhei Washida will be on the show.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. There ☆ Is A Dream! Ryutaro Watanabe (DDT Matsuyamania Affiliation) Big Match!: Hideki Suzuki Vs Ryutaro Watanabe
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

Tetsuya Endo ambushed Yukio Sakaguchi at the contract signing to send a message to his challenger. Nobuhiro Shimatani provoked Sakaguchi to distract him while Endo grabbed a chair for the attack. Endo also gave Sakaguchi a Low Blow before signing the contract. To add extra insult to injury, Shimatani said he would sign the contract on Sakaguchi’s behalf. He signed the words “I’m Sorry” into the column meant for Sakaguchi.

The failed DDT trainee is back for another match. Ryutaro Watanabe trained with DDT back in 2012 but injuries prevented him from ever debuting. It wasn’t until DDT came to his hometown in Matsuyama last year when he finally got his debut match. With DDT coming back to the region they want him to wrestle against Hideki Suzuki. They wanted Watanabe to face the toughest opponent available and Suzuki fits that description to a tee. The two have been in the ring together before as part of a recent Hard Hit tag match that happened in March. The time they wrestled each other was short but it was enough for Watanabe to realise how large the wall is he has to climb.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAREKATSU BOWL~”, 11/05/2019
Nishi Niigata City Hall (Kobari Aoyama Public Hall)

7. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Mike Bailey & MAO

With Hikaru Shida completing the team, Saki Akai is now ready to challenge the Sendai Girls. Shida wrestles in Sendai Girls herself so she is very familiar with Meiko Satomura, Chihiro Hashimoto & DASH Chisako. The one who wants to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles the most is Asuka because she wants to wear the title belts like an accessory. The way the team is laid out has Akai as the leader, Asuka as the sub-leader and Shida as the “New Member”.

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAKASAKI DARUMA~”, 12/05/2019

DDT “BLACK OUT PRESENTS KING OF DDT 2019 THE FINAL!!”, 19/05/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
2. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
3. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X

The official news update for this show is Maku Donaruto will be there! The unofficial news is Keisuke Ishii wants to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet on this show so he can face Endo for the KO-D Title. Due to the new rules that are meant to encourage surprise cash ins, DDT is currently in a position where they cannot promote Endo Vs Ishii for now and have to act like it won’t be happening.

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: Antonio Honda (c) Vs Akito

Something that Antonio Honda and Akito have in common is they both think their biggest career highlight involved the DDT Extreme Title. So it’s fitting the two will fight over it.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

During a press conference yesterday Endo was supposed to select one of the seven losers in the King Of DDT 1st Round to defend the KO-D Title against. However he struggled to remember any of the wrestlers he could choose from. Hisaya Imabayashi listed the names and Endo commented after each one. Kota Umeda? He’s the guy who always hurts his knees. MAO? He’s a fucked up bad guy. Mike Bailey? He’s that guy who can’t do anything without MAO. HARASHIMA? Endo hates him. Kazuki Hirata? Endo would choose him but Hirata is already wrestling for a championship at the show. Yuki Ueno? He was thrown away by his friend. Yukio Sakaguchi? Beaten by Daisuke Sasaki and he won’t stop crying about it.

What Endo didn’t realise was that Sakaguchi was in the building and overheard Endo’s comments. He crashed the press conference and attacked Endo, beating him down! Sakaguchi used Endo’s “Two types of people in the world” motto against him and said he is now on his kill list! When Sakaguchi stormed out of the room, Endo demanded that he be his opponent for the KO-D Title match! This won’t be a pro wrestling match, Endo says he will kill Sakaguchi!

DDT “SOUKEN HOLDINGS PRESENTS MAX BUMP 2019”, 28/04/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Pokotan (w/ Danshoku Dieno)

6. DDT Extreme Title – Panty☆Hunt Tiger Cub Rope Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

There have been Tiger Cub Rope Death Matches in the past but none have ever had panties attached to them! This is what happens when HARASHIMA lets Antonio Honda come up with his match ideas.

With Shunma Katsumata out of action, a decision hasn’t been made over whether or not Konosuke Takeshita will still be in the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Either he will get a new tag team partner or he will be removed and the match will be reduced to a 3 Way Tag.

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Akito

What a sneaky little devil Akito is. I thought he used the title shot he won from the Dramatic General Election on the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match back at the start of the year. Turns out it didn’t because #STRONGHEARTS officially challenged ALL OUT for that match, not the other way round. That means Akito still has his shot and he wants to use it for the DDT Extreme Title. He is happy to face either HARASHIMA or Antonio Honda for it.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
