Virus Concerns, Potential Bride For Chikara, Okinawa Title Match, Nakano Back For Iron Man Title

February 19, 2020

There is no change to the DDT Group’s entire event schedule despite growing fears over the coronavirus outbreak. However DDT is taking measures to prevent the virus from spreading. People attending the shows are advised to wear face masks and also use any hand sanitizers provided by the venue. All wrestlers will also be wearing face masks during autograph and photo sessions (yes that means they will be wearing the masks while getting their photos taken with fans). This will be the plan going forward until the status of virus infections changes.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

Due to Sanshiro Takagi’s increasingly busy schedule, he will no longer have the time to make public appearances for Gake no Fuchi Joshi. He has selected Munenori Sawa to take his place as the deputy owner. Takagi is still the proper owner of Gake no Fuchi but anything regarding public announcements, decisions and appearances will be done by Sawa from now on. Sawa wanted to decline the position but was guilted into taking it because they were broadcasting the announcement live online at the time.

Another potential bride has been found for Chikara! The idol Mao is bringing along Ichiho Shirahata from Gekijo-ban Gokigen Teikoku Ω to see the show. Shirahata is familiar with pro wrestling and has seen both Miyako Matsumoto and Tokyo Joshi Pro matches live in person. At first Chikara was worried about having to wrestle against Matsumoto because he did not want to hit a woman. But with Mao supporting him and a potential marriage with Shirahata on the line, he is motivated and ready to fight like a warrior.

1. Okinawa Pro Title: Eisa8 (c) Vs FUMA

The inactive Okinawa Pro Title is on the line in the main event. The promotion ended five years ago and Eisa8 somehow won the title two years after he left the place. It didn’t live long but it definitely has a place in FUMA’s heart.

Kazuki Hirata will be on the show.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X

Souken Holdings will once again sponsor a match at DDT’s biggest show of the year. That of course also means that one of the company director’s Michiaki Nakano will be there. He still desires the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title even after briefly becoming the champion for around 30 seconds last year. He wants to be in the Battle Royal to win the title again. Takagi is considering the idea but is worried that the fans would get turned off the show when they see Nakano’s physique. Takagi will only allow Nakano to enter the match if he gets in shape for it.

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

The first meeting was a decisive win for Miyu Yamashita. She welcomes the rematch with Natsumi Maki but only if Maki is fully motivated for it. Whether it is because of ring rust or a mental block, the version of Maki she defeated was not the one who was top tier in the roster before her injury.

Saki Akai will be on the show.

Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno usually tweet about their sauna adventures using the hashtag #DDTサウナ部. Their bond has grown so strong that they now will team up for matches. Sadly Katsumata is currently out of action getting a metal plate removed from his cheekbone so he has to miss this one.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

The theme of Gake no Fuchi in 2020 is “I Want To Help Those Who Are In Need With Pro Wrestling”. Miyako Matsumoto is continuing this theme by using pro wrestling to find a potential bride for Chikara. This came about when Chikara took part in a rap battle and owned himself by admitting he can’t get married. The “bride” in question is Mao from the idol group Senosister. She describes herself as the Atsushi Onita of the idol world, having attended a Super FMW show in 2016 and getting Onita’s “holy water” thrown at her. She saw a picture of Chikara and was turned off because he looks like her uncle. Nevertheless, she agreed to attend the next show because her rent is due and she wants the money. Munenori Sawa was also invited to help out.
