July 15, 2018

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TAIYO NO SEASON 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall
181 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Prince Of Uguisudani Vs Prince Of Taiwan: Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Rekka with the Uguisudani Crossface (8:02).
2. GanJo Spring No. 1!: Moeka Haruhi defeated HARUKAZE with a Diving Foot Stomp (8:15).
3. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Katsumura-gun: Shuichiro Katsumura & Facade defeated Shota & Katsumi Oribe when Katsumura submitted Oribe with the Ninja Choke (13:52).
4. Road To Independent World Jr!? Hitori Shiten Pro Wrestling Vs Silent Arm Cross: Ayumu Honda & Kyu Mogami defeated Keisuke Ishii & Chikara when Honda submitted Chikara with a Jumping Cross Armbreaker (12:29).
5. This Is Ganbare☆Wrestling! ~Charisma Vs Revolutionary~: Ken Ohka Vs Yumehito Imanari ended in a No Contest when Survival Tobita and Shin Mokujin Ken interfered. (13:30).
5a. Emergency Special Match: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari defeated Survival Tobita & Shin Mokujin Ken by Disqualification when Ken attacked the referee (2:33).

The battle for Ganbare☆Wrestling went in a bizarre direction when the main event was interrupted by Survival Tobita and a new version of one of his most infamous monster wrestlers Shin Mokujin Ken (I think the original was killed by Mecha Mummy in Chikara Pro)! Tobita gave Ken Ohka a Piledriver while Ken attacked Yumehito Imanari. Ohka immediately changed the main event into a tag team match but that was thrown out when Ken attacked the referee. Tobita told Ohka he wasn’t working hard enough. Tobita is crazier than Ohka is and to prove it he captured Mokujin Ken and brought him to Ganpro to cause some chaos! Ohka called for a truce with Imanari so they can fight back together. They decided that Ohka will face Tobita and Imanari will fight Ken in the first round of the Ganbare☆Climax on 11th August! Imanari said that the Imanari Revolution is no joke. His dream is to lead Ganpro back to Korakuen Hall!

Ayumu Honda used the referee as a shield to block Chikara and leave him open for the Cross Armbreaker. After the match Keisuke Ishii announced he will defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title against Honda on 11th August. Honda wanted to change the date because he is already booked for a K-DOJO show in Chiba that day. Ishii convinced Honda to take the match because the Ganpro show in Narimasu takes place early in the afternoon while the K-DOJO show will be at night.

Shuichiro Katsumura & Facade are both ninjas so they made a good team today. They both did ninja poses to celebrate their win.

HARUKAZE wanted a rematch with Moeka Haruhi on 11th August but there is not enough room on the card to make it happen. Ohka instead offered to enter both HARUKAZE and Haruhi into the Battle Royal to determine who faces the Independent World Jr. Champion the next day. Both accepted.

The Uguisudani Crossface used by Shinichiro Tominaga is also known as the Buffalo Sleeper.

The eight participants for the 2018 Ganbare☆Climax are Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari, Shinichiro Tominaga, Shota, Survival Tobita, Shin Makujin Ken, Mitsuo Momota and Yuu Yamagata.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

HARASHIMA only has two more matches to last through until he can cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet at Korakuen Hall. He previously held the KO-D Openweight and DDT Extreme Titles at the same time back in late 2013/early 2014. He knows Shigehiro Irie gets faster and stronger every time he goes overseas but still Irie has never been able to beat him one on one. Irie also has other matters on his mind, like how Producer Danshoku Dieno was absent for the press conference on Wednesday to promote this show. He calls Dieno irresponsible for not showing up and making the Assistant Producer Hisaya Imabayashi host the conference in his place. Irie thinks the DDT Producer should be present to oversee the promotion of this match because the KO-D Title is supposed to be the most important championship in DDT.

Who wants another new championship! It’s sponsored this time! The Uchikomi! Openweight Ultimate Title is on the line in a special Scramble Tag Rumble Match. The winning team will immediately face each other in a match to decide the first champion. Ken Ohka is the key figure to look out for here. He has starred in commercials for Uchikomi! but they do poor numbers on Youtube. It looks like the goal for this championship is to find a new face for Uchikomi!’s adverts. Ohka promises to win otherwise he will be fired from his commercial gig!

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Naoki Tanizaki (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

After winning the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament, Ryota Nakatsu quickly set forth his next goal. He wants to win the Union MAX Title at Korakuen Hall this September! Naoki Tanizaki is still holding the MAX Title and the DOVE World Title but only the MAX Title will be on the line.

5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo defeated Kota Umeda with the Modified Cross Facelock (11:12).
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Antonio Honda when he stripped off Honda’s bra (13:42).
*V3 for HARASHIMA.

Maybe it was skill or maybe it was blind luck but HARASHIMA defeated Antonio Honda in the Blindfold & Bra Match. At one point Honda rolled out of the ring and HARASHIMA tried to chase after him. Honda pulled the shirts off of Yuki Iino and Nobuhiro Shimatani when they stood too close to him. They were both wearing bras underneath even though it wasn’t mandatory for them to do so. Back in the ring Honda applied an Octopus Hold to HARASHIMA and succeeded in unhooking his bra. HARASHIMA defended himself well so Honda rolled him into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch. That was a grave mistake because the positioning allowed HARASHIMA to unhook Honda’s bra and strip it right off him by kicking out of the hold, resulting in a victory for HARASHIMA! After the match he said he hasn’t decided on the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. For now his focus is on winning the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie on 22nd July!

Another good effort from Kota Umeda that just wasn’t enough in his latest match of the Mad Dog Trials. Dick Togo’s ring awareness allowed him to trap Umeda in the Cross Facelock several times. The one that made Umeda finally tap out was transitioned into a modified version of the move that looks similar to the Dick Killer. Togo thinks Umeda can still grow into becoming the so called “Mad Dog” that he claims to be but for now he is still in the stage where he should be establishing a style for himself. His advice to Umeda is to wrestle more and more because pro wrestling is more than a career, it’s an experience.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was up for grabs in a 10 minute long Battle Royal. The champion KUDO had Masahiro Takanashi fighting by his side against the rest of the field but the chaos was too much to handle. Nobuhiro Shimatani found his moment to strike and he pinned KUDO with a School Boy to win the title. Everyone ganged up on him until Saori Anou found her spot to win the belt with a Fisherman Suplex. KUDO had a change of heart and decided to protect Anou by fending off those who attacked her including including his friends Takanashi and Saki Akai. Anou didn’t appreciate KUDO’s aid and she kicked him out of the ring. She got into a back and forth with Akai until Akai pinned her with a Diving Cross Body. Shimatani got the title back with a Small Package with two minutes left to go. Konosuke Takeshita made his presence felt by giving Shimatani a Brainbuster onto the title belt. Takeshita got the pin and stayed as champion for the final minute of the match.

The Battle Royal was over but there were still people who wanted the Iron Man Title. Yuki Iino tried to pin Takeshita with a School Boy outside the ring but he kicked out. Danshoku Dieno then ran out and gave Takeshita the Lip Lock in the ring. He went for the pin but Sanshiro Takagi suddenly broke it up by throwing a chair at Dieno! Takagi invited this week’s special guest Akari Suda from SKE48 down to the ring so she can become the champion! Yukinori Matsui was against the idea but immediately changed his mind when Suda shook his hand. Takagi gave Takeshita a Stunner then Suda locked him into the Ocotpus Hold, the dreaded finishing move of World Idol Pro Wrestling star Octopus Suda! Takeshita clearly did not give up but Matsui ruled he was knocked out and rewarded the Iron Man Title to Suda! Takagi warned Suda that she may be attacked by people who want the championship at any time. Suda asked Takagi if he can protect her if that is the case.

The 3 Way Trios match wasn’t held under Hardcore rules but MAO still used a plastic toy hammer on some of his opponents during the match. Sammy Guevara and Facade ran circles around the rest of the participants and floored them all with dives out of the ring. Guevara then finished off Daiki Shimomura with the 630 Splash to give Irie-gun the victory. Tetsuya Endo wants MAO to know that their KO-D Tag Team Titles match on 22nd July won’t be a Hardcore match so he better leave the weapons at home. Mad Paulie stole some pictures of Facade from the merch stand. Endo scolded Paulie until he found a picture of Saori Anou among them.

The BIG LOVE between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka is strong for the most part. Well there was that moment when Sasaki accidentally hit Asuka with a Clothesline but that honestly was an accident. Asuka recovered and countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstasy into a Choke Slam of her own. She then pinned Oishi with the Moonsault. Sasaki begged Asuka to forgive him after the match. What he did was the biggest tragedy of this century and he promised to never do it again. Asuka said “BIG LOVE!” to Sasaki and they hugged. When asked about their upcoming singles match against each other at Korakuen Hall, Sasaki told everyone to look forward to it because they will show love to each other in the ring.

With the future of DNA up in the air, the Naomi Kingdom are looking to the future and it involves finishing off their rivals on the final show. Keisuke Okuda doesn’t care where they end up because he isn’t afraid of anything. If all of the juniors below him have fear then they should stop wrestling. Naomi Yoshimura wants to take down Yuki Ueno once and for all before DNA is done. After that he will be free to do what he wants whether it is in DDT, DNA or anywhere else in the company.

Akito’s submission skills got him out of a jam. He reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock from Yuki Ueno to grab the victory.

Danshoku Dieno didn’t let his one show suspension from the main Maji Manji card let him down. He came out for his dark match with cans of beer ready to get the crowd fired up! He was also drinking to promote the Beer Garden shows taking place in August. He invited Rekka to join in the fun and they both wrestled while drinking. It got a bit out of control when they spat beer with each other and used the beer cans as weapons.


Irie-gun Grows, Sasaki Has Big Love For Asuka, Campsite Pro Wrestling Is Back

July 6, 2018

DDT “MASAHIRO TAKANASHI DEBUT 15th ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL ~IN THE WORLD THERE IS NO STOREHOUSE~”, 08/07/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase Vs Daiki Shimomura
1. Ryogoku Style Gauntlet Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yasu Urano Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Makoto Oishi & Cherry Vs Antonio Honda & Riho Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Keisuke Ishii Vs Hoshitango & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Rekka

5. DAMNATION Vs Irie-gun: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara, Facade & Baliyan Akki
6. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Isami Kodaka

Irie-gun is really taking on an international flavour. Indian wrestler Baliyan Akki (sorry for getting his name wrong all this time) who has been competing in DNA and Ganbare☆Wrestling this year is the latest addition to the unit.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #11”, 10/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

0. NO TV Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito
0. NO TV Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Rekka
1. Daisuke Sasaki & Asuka Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie, Sammy Guevara & Facade Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Keisuke Ishhi, MAO & Daiki Shimomura
3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: KUDO (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Toru Owashi Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Saki Akai Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Saori Anou
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda Vs Shunma Katsumata & Kouki Iwasaki
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

The main event will be light hearted but both HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will take it seriously. There’s a championship and a Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line after all.

Kota Umeda is currently 0-3 in his trial series but the wealth of talent and experience on offer is making this a worthwhile project for the youngster. Dick Togo is next up on his list.

This week’s episode saw the surprise first appearance of the “Neon Ninja” Facade, walking down to the ring as part of Irie-gun. The guy is a high risk taker and adds another dangerous element to Shigehiro Irie’s growing faction.

A change in attitude is afoot in DAMNATION and it is all because Daisuke Sasaki has fallen in love. He and Asuka originally hit it off at the Toshimaen Street Wrestling show back in May and when they got to team up again this week, Sasaki did everything he could to protect Asuka during the match. Sasaki says DAMNATION now stands for “Big Love” and he is eager to team up with Asuka again. While Asuka is calling herself the “DAMNATION Diva” there hasn’t been any official decision made in the group yet to induct her as the newest member. She’s at least in a better position in connection to the group than Nobuhiro Shimatani so far.

Danshoku Dieno is serving a one show suspension from the “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” broadcast after he was sent off during the World Cup Rules match this week. He is relegated to the dark match because of this.

DDT “DRAMATIC MOOD SEIJO↑↑ 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie Vs Kouki Iwasaki Vs Yuki Iino
2. Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Kota Umeda

4. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani
5. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Facade & Mizuki Watase
6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara Vs HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno
7. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO

Another city vs city grudge has popped up in DDT with Tetsuya Endo and MAO both fighting for their hometowns. Seijo Hall plays the neutral ground for those two to solve their differences.

DDT “TOYOCHO GOLD’S GYM SUPER CENTER GRAND OPENING MEMORIAL MAT PRO WRESTLING ~MUSCLE IS A LIFETIME CLOTHING~”, 17/07/2018
Tokyo Toyocho Gold’s Gym Super Center 4th Floor

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & HARASHIMA Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga

I think Shunma Katsumata should have been in this match teaming with Akito. Then I remember Katsumata only has a low tier membership with his local Gold’s Gym so he probably doesn’t see the point in travelling over to the grand opening of a new branch.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. Shinsyu Pro Wrestling Offer Match: X Vs X
2. Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi Vs Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda

4. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons have stopped the gimmick and will return to normal. That means Kazuki Hirata is back in the spots where Hiratimo Dragon was previously advertised in.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

2. Uchikomi! Belt Scramble Tag Rumble: KUDO & Saki Akai Vs Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi Vs Antonio Honda & Alex Ace Vs Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Super Sasadango Machine & Yuki Iino Vs Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi
3. Big Love! Special Single Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Asuka
4. T2HiJoshi Vs ALL OUT Joshi ~Korakuen Super Hot Whirlpool!~: Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata Vs Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Daisuke Sasaki’s love for Asuka has led to a singles match between the two. Except maybe Sasaki doesn’t think it’s a wrestling match. Whatever it is, he’s organising something for Asuka and so far she’s going along with it.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #12”, 24/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #9” Results

June 26, 2018

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #9”, 26/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
220 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

0. NO TV Match: Mizuki Watase defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Back Drop (5:22).

5. 3 Way Tag Match: Antonio Honda & Aaron Anders defeated Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara and HARASHIMA & Kouki Iwasaki when Honda pinned Iwasaki with the Diving Fist Drop (7:16).
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) when Paulie pinned Higuchi with the Reverse Splash (21:25).
*SekiGuchi fails in V3. DAMNATION becomes the 64th KO-D Tag Team Champions!

The week has gone from bad to worse for Kazusada Higuchi. First on Sunday he failed to win the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie. Now today he loses the KO-D Tag Team Titles to DAMNATION! To add even more salt to the wounds, this week’s table spot was Mad Paulie splashing Higuchi through the table during the match. Daisuke Sekimoto couldn’t help after Tetsuya Endo wiped him out with the Overhead Kick followed by a dive. From there Paulie crushed Higuchi with the Reverse Splash to win the match and crown new champions. Endo celebrated with Paulie and asked how he felt about winning his first championship. Paulie just growled. Hisaya Imabayashi came out and asked the new champions when they will be ready for their first defence. Endo refused to defend the titles until MAO came down and challenged them. Imabayashi decided that MAO & Mike Bailey will get a title shot on 22nd July. Backstage Sekimoto admitted that Endo & Paulie make are an amazing combination of speed and strength. Paulie is just too darn popular with the women in the audience as well.

Irie-gun surprised everyone by revealing a brand new member of the growing unit. The “Neon Ninja” Facade accompanied Irie & Sammy Guevara to the ring for the 3 Way Tag Match. He later said that he was here in DDT to be the best in the world with the rest of Irie-gun. Guevara had HARASHIMA in trouble after he gave him a Spanish Fly but Antonio Honda & Aaron Anders cut him off. Honda & Anders then turned their attention to Kouki Iwasaki and pinned him with the Twisting Flapjack followed by the Diving Fist Drop. Honda is psyched up to face HARASHIMA in the Blindfold Bra Match on 10th July. He warned HARASHIMA to get ready and wash his nipples because Honda will expose them to become the DDT Extreme Champion!

Konosuke Takeshita wants everyone to know that the meaning of ALL OUT is to reach the limit when you train your muscles and then exceed it. When it comes to women’s wrestling, nobody represents that philosophy better than Meiko Satomura. Takeshita challenged Satomura to come back on the 24th July episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” and to bring along some more joshi from Sendai Girls so they can have a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match together! Satomura accepted the challenge but then told Takeshita that they won’t be teaming together anymore because they are now enemies! Satomura will bring over DASH Chisako & Cassandra Miyagi to be on her team. Takeshita hopes this will begin a series of title defences against teams of all kinds from other promotions so ALL OUT can raise the prestige of the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles.

A large crash mat was placed next to the ring during Match #3 for everyone to do big moves on. The mat was later placed on the apron on its side. MAO jumped into it and the mat fell on top of most of the other wrestlers in the match. With them all pinned down outside, MAO gave Yuki Ueno a Michinoku Driver on top of them. He then pinned Ueno with the Curb Stomp back inside the ring.

Kota Umeda beat Makoto Oishi rather easily in the battle to determine who the real star of Maji Manji is. Oishi challenged Umeda to a tag match against him and Danshoku Dieno next week. Umeda had already left the ring while Oishi was talking.

A glum looking Washitimo Dragon had his debut match in DDT for the unit now known as the Timo Timo Timo Dragons. His partners both unmasked themselves and tried to frame Daisuke Sasaki for fouling them. Sasaki threw the masks away then intentionally unmasked Washitimo to get disqualified. After the match Takatimo Dragon and Hiratimo Dragon began to worry about the news that Ultimo Dragon is coming back to DDT on 3rd July. Maybe it won’t be so bad and they can convince him to join their group. Then they can all be called the Timo Timo Timo Timo Dragons!

Trouble is brewing over Tetsuya Endo and his refusal to cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet. Endo told everyone that he auctioned off the Gauntlet. This led to Imabayashi ordering Yuki Iino to go look for the Gauntlet by searching through Endo’s stuff. Iino brought Endo’s backpack to the ring and emptied its contents. He found a porn mag and then the Gauntlet. Endo demanded to be given the porn back. Imabayashi told him he can only get it back if he promises to bring the Gauntlet with him everywhere like he is supposed to.

Tenshin Nasukawa was on commentary for the show and was confronted by Ken Ohka at the start. Ohka told him he was relieved that his scheduled ass kicking was postponed because of Nasukawa’s injury. Ohka understands that he must take the punishment sometime and he invited Nasukawa back when he is at his most perfect condition to make it happen.

Next week’s episode of Maji Manji will have a Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match between Higuchi, Takeshita, MAO and Masashi Takeda. The following week will have the Blindfold Bra match between HARASHIMA and Honda for the DDT Extreme Title. This show also has Kota Umeda Vs Dick Togo scheduled. Finally the 24th July episode has Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid against Daisuke Sasaki & Jun Kasai in a Hardcore Tag Match!

The 22nd July Korakuen show will now have Asuka from Pro Wrestling WAVE and the debut of Spanish giant Alex Ace.
