5. DDT Extreme Title – All Men Are Equal! Kazuki Hirata Death Match: Shinya Aoki (c) defeated Kazuki Hirata with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (12:20).
*V2 for Shinya Aoki.
6. HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura, MAO & Yuto Aijima defeated Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Hideki Okatani & Azul Dragon when HARASHIMA pinned Okatani with the Somato (10:41).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (T/c) defeated Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno (I/c) & Yuki “Sexy” Iino when Katsumata pinned Dieno after the MADMAX (19:34).
*V2 for The 37KAMIINA. Shunma Katsumata becomes the 1,516th Iron Man Heavymetalweight champion.

The smell of victory was not coming from Pheromones today. Far from it. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata were ready to defend against their shenanigans and isolated Danshoku Dieno. After a brief absence from the ring, Yuki Iino returned with “Taboo” music playing over the speakers and he stripped off his wrestling gear. Dieno made Takeshita & Katsumata Lip Lock each other and Iino climbed the ropes to set up the Badonkadonk. However, Katsumata used a Casadora to drop Dieno onto the canvas and then Buzzsaw Kicked him, positioning Dieno beneath Iino. Iino didn’t know who was below him so he Badonkadonked his own partner! The 37KAMIINA got rid of Iino with Sandwich kicks and pinned Dieno with the MADMAX.

The result is a second successful KO-D Tag Team Titles defence for The 37KAMIINA. Also since Katsumata pinned Dieno it means Katsumata is the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion so he is now a double crown champion just like Takeshita! Their next challengers came out when HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura entered the ring. HARASHIMA wants to take the Tag Titles back after Katsumata pinned him for it back in June. He was champions with Yuji Okabayashi then but this time he wants both titles to be with DISASTER BOX so Yoshimura will team with him. The challenge was accepted and will take place in Korakuen Hall on 12th October. Backstage Dieno warned that this is not the end of Pheromones because they will reveal the third member soon.

It was revealed that Yuto Aijima will be retiring from pro wrestling later this year and he asked DDT to host his final match in his hometown of Omuta, Fukuoka. Aijima’s been wrestling for over 25 years and now that he is in his mid-50’s it is time to hang up his boots. He had discussed these plans with Sanshiro Takagi for two years because of the Covid-19 restrictions prevented the show from taking place anywhere. But now they have a venue and when the date is cleared it can finally go ahead.

The rules of the DDT Extreme Title match forced Shinya Aoki to wrestle like Kazuki Hirata. So he literally became Hirata and wrestled in an identical costume. Hisaya Imabayashi and Toru Owashi were the judges and it was up to them to determine if Aoki was only using moves that Hirata could do. On the bright side this gave Hirata a fighting chance. On the negative side the judges spent the entire match insulting Hirata on the microphone while they described his abilities, or lack there of. Aoki put Hirata in a Sleeper Hold but was told to stop because Hirata would rather dance in this situation. Aoki put on the glasses and dance while Hirata put him in a School Boy for a nearfall. Aoki had to use the Miracle One Shot Cradle but Hirata kicked out of it. Hirata then used his authentic version of the move but Aoki used the momentum to roll back on top and sneak away with the win. Hirata praised Aoki for how accurate the imitation is and will challenge him again when Aoki spreads the image of Kazuki Hirata across the world!

Saki Akai got the win over Yuna Manase and told her how she felt afterwards. Manase is too loud and proud which annoys Akai. But they’re both from the same generation and their careers began around the same time. It is up to the likes of them to create new wrestling fans. If the passion of Ganbare☆Joshi works for Manase then she should continue down that path. Akai accepts it might not be the wrong way after all and if Manase ever becomes stronger, they will have a rematch. They had a pinkie swear to mark that promise.

Three of DDT’s most bizarre gimmicks were put together in a trio and the results were as weird as expected. Takagi noticed that Mecha Mummy was shorter than the last time it appeared. Yoshihiko didn’t do anything until it was provoked. Pokotan’s movement was familiar enough for Antonio Honda to think it was Mizuki Watase in disguise. Mummy was rendered useless thanks to cold spray and Yoshihiko was thrown out of ringside. But when Honda demanded Pokotan to give up, Pokotan shouted for help and Yoshihiko returned this time with a noticeably bigger “shadow” behind it. Yoshihiko cleared the ring and gave Honda the Exploder Suplex. The shadow then unmasked to reveal Jun Akiyama! He threw Yoshihiko on top of Honda for the pin to end the match. Akiyama had to join in with the team’s post-match interview backstage and had to ask if any of them could talk. Akiyama had to answer questions on their behalf until he got fed up and went home.

After intermission Takagi announced a new addition to the DDT Teenage Project. It is Vent Vert Jack from the MY WAY promotion in Kyushu. Jack is 16 years old but has been wrestling with his father Vent Vert Negro for almost a decade. He has been in DDT before and is even a former Iron Man Champion. He isn’t the only one joining the brand though. Jack said his MY WAY classmate and rival Yousei☆Estrella will also be joining the project. Backstage Takagi joked about knowing several child wrestlers across Japan and name dropped Mr. #6 from Nagoya.

MUSCLE “HIRAGANA MUSCLE 5 TOKYO PERFORMANCE ~NO MORE SPECIAL MOVES ANYMORE~ ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCE NIGHT TIME”, 10/09/2021
Kitazawa Town Hall

The Hiragana Muscle show that was held in Korakuen Hall last week is having two repeat performances at Kitazawa Town Hall tomorrow. The shows should be a largely identical story to the first one. Any differences will come from audience participation and the fan voting sections.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino Vs Chris Brookes, Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Yuya Koroku
2. 3 Way Match: Yuki Ueno Vs Akito Vs Yukio Naya
3. Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Hideki Okatani & Azul Dragon Vs HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura, MAO & Yuto Aijima
4. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match ~ DRAMATIC WARS: Yoshihiko, Mecha Mummy & Pokotan Vs Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda
5. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino
7. DDT Extreme Title – All Men Are Equal! Kazuki Hirata Death Match: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata

Normally it is the DDT Extreme Champion who chooses the match stipulation for title defences. However Shinya Aoki allowed Kazuki Hirata to pick the match gimmick this time. They agreed to an “All Men Are Equal!” match. Hirata explained that Aoki’s fighting power is 530,000 while his own power is just 20 (he promises to level up to 25 in time for the match). To make it a fair fight Aoki has to fight at Hirata’s level and only use moves that Hirata would do. For example, Aoki is not allowed to use a Cobra Clutch because Hirata never used that move himself. The match will be stopped if Aoki doesn’t fight like Hirata. Two referees, Hisaya Imabayashi and another person will be at ringside to judge what Aoki can and cannot do. This also means Aoki must learn to dance like Hirata because that is inevitable.

Shunma Katsumata is getting annoyed by the behavior of Pheromones. His button was pushed even more when he signed the contract for the match and noticed a funny smell coming from the pen. He found out the pen was in Yuki Iino’s mouth and covered in his drool. Konosuke Takeshita isn’t bothered by the mind games because as the champion of DDT he is prepared for everything his opponents will throw at him. Katsumata doesn’t have that patience and tried to attack Pheromones. Danshoku Dieno stopped him in his tracks with the Lip Lock.

Yuna Manase is as fired up as she’s ever been to promote her match against Saki Akai. It makes her angry that Akai hasn’t been putting in the same amount of effort and will make it all the sweeter if she beats her. Akai is surprised to see Manase act like this. She always assumed she was the older sister type. Instead Akai thinks she is trying to hide how smaller and weaker she actually is.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yuya Koroku
0. Under Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Yumiko Hotta Vs Shinya Aoki & Mizuki Watase
1. Yuki “Sexy” Iino & Pheromones X Vs Yusuke Okada & Hideki Okatani

4. Special Tag Match: Jun Akiyama & Yoshihiko Vs HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata
5. DAMNATION Dissolution Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Shuji Ishikawa, Yuji Hino, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

Seven members of DAMNATION gather together for the unit’s final match. Shuji Ishikawa unfortunately will not get his wish to sing karaoke with DAMNATION at the Tokyo Dome. However Hiroshi Yamato is missing from the lineup too but I don’t know what his schedule is.

DDT wants to put more effort into the early matches of their shows to make up for the shorter run times enforced by the pandemic. Putting together the undercard under these conditions is a problem Sanshiro Takagi is trying to figure out. The restrictions prevent DDT from filling venues with fans so DDT have decided to stream the first three matches (the two pre-show matches and Match #1) live on their Youtube channel for those who cannot attend shows.

Normally the early matches are for the young wrestlers but Takagi wants to get creative. So he’s putting Yumiko Hotta and Shinya Aoki on opposite teams. Both of them fought in RIZIN and Takagi wants to see how they would fare against each other for that reason. This is also surprising because Hotta was publicly upset over Natsumi Maki leaving Actwres girl’Z for Tokyo Joshi Pro at the end of 2018. If she held any grudge with DDT over that then it looks like it is all water under the bridge now.

Now that “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is in the rear view mirror, DDT is starting to shake up a little bit with new champions, new youth, a new team and the threat of existing alliances getting torn apart. We’ll get to each one show by show.

DDT “DRAMATIC SURVIVOR 2021”, 04/09/2021
Nagoya Congress Center Event Hall

1. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazuki Hirata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino
2. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: Junretsu, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Ueno & MAO

4. Mad Paulie Vs Keigo Nakamura
5. Kazusada Higuchi & Saki Akai Vs Akito & Yukio Naya
6. Special Single Match: Chris Brookes Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
7. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Decision Match: Losers Of Match #1 Vs Losers Of Match #2

The name of the show isn’t just there to sound cool. The Dramatic Survivor Unit tournament was revealed to be a reverse bracket where the losing teams advance to the final. Win a match and your team is safe, lose all your matches and your unit must split up! Sanshiro Takagi came up with the idea to avoid DDT getting stale. He wants all the teams to fight for survival and there is no bigger motivation than the survival of your unit! To make things even more riskier, if a champion team is in the disbanding unit they will be forced to vacate their titles too! So if The 37KAMIINA lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D Tag Team Titles. If DAMNATION lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. For Junretsu and DISASTER BOX there will be no championships stripped.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori Vs Tokiko Kirihara
2. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
3. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota
4. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong International Police Man Vs Makoto Vs Itsuki Aoki
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Choun-Shiryu is unable to be on the show due to “circumstances”. His spot in the 3 Way Match is coincidentally being filled by the rarely seen Hong Kong International Police Man.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match ~ DRAMATIC WARS: Yoshihiko, Mecha Mummy & Pokotan Vs Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda
2. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
3. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino

Back at the Beer Garden shows Danshoku Dieno and Yuki Iino appealed to form a tag team. Their request wasn’t met because they couldn’t come up with a suitable or tasteful team name. Well today they have their team name and also nicknames to match. From now on Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino are Pheromones! They immediately challenged Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata for the KO-D Tag Titles and got their shot so they would stop annoying the champions.

If the KO-D Tag Titles happen to be vacated because The 37KAMIINA lose the Dramatic Survivor tournament, then the match will be changed into a decision bout to determine the new champions. So at least Takeshita & Katsumata have a chance to reclaim the belts after they are forced to give them up.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The new KO-D Openweight Champion Takeshita took some time to reflect on his latest accomplishment. After finally beating Jun Akiyama, the KO-D Title belt now has a different weight to it and Takeshita feels a different responsibility when it comes to defending it. He is in his best condition because of this pressure and is ready to take on Chris Brookes. He hasn’t beaten Brookes since July 2019 when he defended the KO-D Title against him back then. Brookes has won every singles match they’ve had together since then, which were either championship or tournament matches.

Masahiro Takanashi has become active again since coming back from injury. Not in the ring though because ChocoPro doesn’t have one. He wrestles his first match in DDT since March 2020.

“MASAHIRO TAKANASHI BOX OFFICE YOPPARAI IS BACK”, 01/10/2021

Third time’s the charm. Takanashi even got to keep the entire card this time.

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

After stealing the belt multiple times over the last month, Daisuke Sasaki in now officially the DDT Universal Champion. His first title defence will be on 12th October and he has the right to choose his challenger. He chose CM Punk but DDT cannot make that happen for multiple reasons. Sasaki then picked Minoru Fujita as his back-up choice. Fujita beat Sasaki at July’s DAMNATION produced show so Sasaki wants to avenge that loss. The match is not official yet but DDT will send the challenge over to Fujita.

Nagoya Civic Gymnasium 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita & Yuki Arai Vs Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto

Yuki Arai’s first match in Nagoya is a big enough deal to main event the show because Nagoya is the home of SKE48. She will team with her mentor Miyu Yamashita against Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto. Another SKE48 member Shiori Aoki will be on commentary for the match.

Maki Itoh suffered a fractured left cheekbone in her Tokyo Princess Cup Quarter Final match. It will take two to four weeks for it to heal but she will definitely wrestle on 14th August. She will miss this Saturday’s show though.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Shoko Nakajima Vs Shoko Nakajima
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Mizuki Vs Maki Itoh

The semi final draw was held and the matchups are confirmed. Itoh is confident she will be fully healed in time to face Mizuki in the main event. Overcoming the pain is what makes Itoh stronger and this is the opponents she wants more than anyone else. Mizuki is aiming for the three-peat and has never lost to Itoh before. Winning this match will give her the confidence she needs to win the final 24 hours later. Miu Watanabe is now four years into her pro wrestling career and has fallen in love with it. She also revealed the idol she looks up to most is Mayu Watanabe from AKB48. Her opponent Shoko Nakajima reaches the final four once again but she isn’t taking it for granted. Tokyo Joshi Pro has grown so much over the years that it motivates her to be the best again.

Yuka Sakazaki has her first match back in Japan since coming home from the latest AEW tour.

A few other return appearances brings the Rika Tatsumi Vs NEO Biishiki-gun feud back to life. Yukio Saint Laurent and Antonio Honda get involved again. The only difference is instead of a zombie we get Pom Harajuku.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada

In a press conference today the participants of both title matches got to speak. The KO-D Tag Team Titles match will be Yusuke Okada’s first championship shot in DDT since he signed with the company. Jun Akiyama is looking forward to teaming with his student and trusts him enough to let him do his stuff. Shunma Katsumata is determined not to lose the titles in his first defence. He also wants to pin Akiyama again like he did at the Ultimate Tag League. His partner Konosuke Takeshita said he will focus on Akiyama because he can rely on Katsumata to win the match if it comes down to him. The match serves as a clash of different wrestling styles and philosophies. Takeshita says there is no correct answer for pro wrestling that applies to everybody. Akiyama disagrees because he thinks the Giant Baba style that he learned has all of the right answers. Baba’s way is the correct way and the proof is in Akiyama being the current KO-D Openweight Champion.

The Olympic atmosphere in Japan has inspired Shinya Aoki to defend the DDT Extreme Title against MAO in a Hardcore Judo match. Aoki and MAO aren’t sure themselves what the rules are in a Hardcore Judo match but they are excited to do it.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase

It is a match Yuna Manase originally wanted at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” but it never came to be. She wants a singles match against Saki Akai so much she crashed a DDT show to demand it. Akai doesn’t have any strong feelings about her opponent. She remembers the year she debuted people online were hoping the two of them would team together but other than that they are from completely different parts of the wrestling scene. Akai recently wrestled in Ganpro and felt everyone there has passion but it went away very quickly. If Manase’s fire is red then Akai’s fire is blue and that is much more hotter.

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) defeated Akito with the WR (28:09).
*V6 for Yuki Ueno.

Yuki Ueno went into the evening half of the doubleheader in less than 100% condition. In the early show, Akito heavily targeted Ueno’s knees knowing it would still effect him when it was time to have the DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. However Ueno made an effort not to show pain, appearing in the ring without any tape covering his knees much to Akito’s surprise. It didn’t change Akito’s gameplan though and he continued to focus attacking Ueno’s knees. Ueno was still able to hit his Standing Shining Wizard and even the BME but the damage done left him slow to pin Akito afterwards. Akito’s chance for the Goliath Birdeater was shaken off with another Shining Wizard followed by a Dropkick right to the face. Ueno then did the WR and it was enough for him to win the match.

Before today, Ueno wasn’t sure if he was able to get through this match with Akito. He had fun fighting him and is welcome to doing it as many times as he can, as long as he is the defending champion of course. Ueno invited the rest of The 37KAMIINA into the ring. He was joined by the full unit and also Toui Kojima who tried to fit in before being sent off by the others. Ueno told the fans his goal is to have another title match in Hakata by the end of the year.

It seemed that Jun Akiyama was in a good enough mood to tolerate Kazuki Hirata’s antics. He encouraged Hirata to dance to his music before the match and offered him a handshake afterwards. Akiyama then Headbutted Hirata and the match began from there with Akiyama against HARASHIMA. Speaking of HARASHIMA, he had a message for Akiyama. He had Yusuke Okada beaten with the Somato but instead of going for the pin, he used Akiyama’s signature Front Neck Lock to make Okada submit instead. HARASHIMA then promised to beat Akiyama at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” for all of the DDT fans.

Match #2 immediately went off the rails when Danshoku Dieno got his hands on Toui Kojima in an inappropriate way, causing the no contest. Hisaya Imabayashi demanded a restart because he knew how much Sanshiro Takagi wanted to wrestle in Fukuoka again after a long time away. It was still ridiculous but Takagi got to do lucha spots with Toru Owashi so he was happy with the effort.

There were two Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes after the opening match. Antonio Honda tripped and hurt his knee while celebrating his team’s win. He used Gongitsune to poke everyone in the eye, including Chris Brookes. Honda then pinned Brookes with a School Boy to take the Iron Man Title away from him. When Brookes argued with him, Saki Akai caught Honda with a Big Boot and then pinned him with a School Boy of her own to become the new champion.


DDT “AUDIENCE 2021 TOUR IN FUKUOKA (NOON)” Results

May 29, 2021

DDT “AUDIENCE 2021 TOUR IN FUKUOKA (NOON)”, 29/05/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall
113 Fans

1. Only Because It Is! DDT Variety Team Specialty Tag Match: Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Yuki Iino when Honda pinned Iino after pushing him into Dieno’s Hell Gate (8:07).
2. Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai defeated Makoto Oishi, Yusuke Okada & Keigo Nakamura when Akai pinned Nakamura with the Quetzalcoatl (7:51).
3. Soma Takao defeated Yukio Naya with a Cradle (8:33).
4. Akito & Yuto Aijima defeated Yuki Ueno & Shunma Katsumata when Akito submitted Ueno with a Modified Leg Lock from a Cradle (11:51).
5. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Yuji Hino defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Naomi Yoshimura when Endo pinned Hirata with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (11:03).
6. Tenjin Specialty! Parental Misfortune Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes Vs Konosuke Takeshita & MAO ended in a Time Limit Draw (30:00).

The afternoon half of DDT’s doubleheader in Fukuoka was headlined with a 30 minute draw that took a lot out of everyone. MAO gave HARASHIMA a Package Piledriver onto the apron. That left Chris Brookes to fight The 37KAMIINA on his own for a while. HARASHIMA got back into the match but Konosuke Takeshita was there to meet him face to face. MAO would give HARASHIMA a Stunner (with the “Fire!” pose afterward), Takeshita gave Brookes a Vertical Drop Brainbuster, MAO missed the 450 Cannonball and Brookes put him in the Octopus Hold. Takeshita broke the hold seconds before the time ran out and the match was ruled a draw.

Afterwards when everyone caught their breath MAO told the fans that he left Tokyo last night, arrived in Fukuoka this morning, wrestled for 30 minutes and still has another show to do later today. He then said everybody celebrated Takeshita’s 26th birthday today on the tour bus. Takeshita talked about how as the years go by he, MAO and HARASHIMA are all DDT veterans. He also acknowledged that Brookes is now fully a part of DDT too. Brookes thanked the fans for coming to the show. HARASHIMA joined in and promoted the evening show to come later.

The level of dislike between DISASTER BOX and DAMNATION grew even further one day before the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match takes place. A surprise attack happened from the bell but it was from DISASTER BOX. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata tried to gang up on Tetsuya Endo but he used a Handspring Double Back Elbow to fight them off. DAMNATION would focus on beating down on both of them until Naomi Yoshimura came to the rescue. His clash with Yuji Hino was heating up when Hirata demanded to tag in, explaining he was reborn to win the 6-Man Tag Titles tomorrow. Hino easily smashed Hirata aside and brought Daisuke Sasaki in for a few extra digs. A missed Lariat from Hino hit Endo instead and Hirata took his chance. Hirata went for his own Lariat but hurt himself when Endo blocked it. A Headbutt, an Overhead Kick and the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb then put Hirata away. After the match Endo called Owashi, Hirata & Yoshimura the bottom three wrestlers in DDT to challenge for the titles. He advised them to cancel the match. Yoshimura grabbed the microphone and said he really wants to win the belts with Owashi & Hirata. Yoshimura then made Hino his target for the title match tomorrow.

Hours before their DDT UNIVERSAL Title match took place, Akito left Yuki Ueno in a bad state by heavily targeting his legs during a tag match. Akito got out of the WR to deliver big damage to Ueno’s legs before applying a Modified Leg Lock. Ueno tried to counter it by Cradling Akito for a pin attempt but the pain was too much for him to bare. Ueno tapped out while the referee was counting the pin, giving Akito’s team the win. Akito mocked Ueno by telling the fans to applaud the champion for being in “good condition” today. He then pointed out that there was not enough time for Ueno to fully recover before the title match happens tonight.

The size difference between Yukio Naya and Soma Takao gave Naya an unexpected advantage. He was too tall for Takao to Low Blow with a backwards kick when Naya tried to give him a Back Drop. Takao had to push Naya into the referee in order to Low Blow him and get away with it.

Keigo Nakamura got overconfident and tried to beat Saki Akai with her own move, the Quetzalcoatl. Akai reversed the move and gave everyone a chance to see how the original is done.

Yoshiaki Yatsu held a public training session today to demonstrate his wrestling ability with his specially made prosthetic foot. Using Keigo Nakamura as his sparring partner, Yatsu successfully did Bulldog Headlocks, Suplexes, Power Slams and even a Uranage. For his big finish, Yatsu applied the Jail Hold with such skill that it made Nakamura submit. Yatsu explained to the reporters that when he stands, he cannot move his ankle so he risks becoming an easy target in the Battle Royal if he stays still. For now, kicking with the prosthetic foot has not been ruled illegal by DDT so Yatsu is looking forward to kicking and stomping his opponents before the rule gets changed. He is so excited to wrestle again.

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2A: Minoru Fujita Vs Daiki Shimomura

Only one Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ match is happening on this show because Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura ended in a time limit draw, eliminating both of them from the tournament. Yasu Urano receives a bye straight to the semi-finals because of this. Daiki Shimomura is coming off of the biggest upset in Round 1, beating two time Itadaki winner Ryota Nakatsu. However that was under 2 Count Rules. Can he do the same against the veteran Minoru Fujita under the normal ruleset?

His former ally SAGAT with his wild fighting style is waiting for him next. Meanwhile the Isami Kodaka versus FUMA rivalry is reignited with their latest battle coming up.

The contracts have been signed for the three championship matches. The match order was decided by measuring the career achievements of the three current champions. That means the GHC Heavyweight Title match will be the last match on the show, the KO-D Openweight Title match will be before the GHC match and the Princess Of Princess Title match will be before the KO-D match.

Super Sasadango Machine tried to invade the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall on Saturday to negotiate who he will fight at Saitama Super Arena. Unfortunately he doesn’t understand how wrestlers are able to crash other companies and couldn’t get past the entrance because he had no ticket for the show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Maki Itoh has a grand vision for 121000000. She wants herself and Miyu Yamashita to hold all the championships in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Yamashita can have the Princess Title, Itoh can get back the International Princess Title and they will also take one Princess Tag Team Title belt each. Now comes the tough job, beating NEO Biishiki-gun. They did it once before in February but NEO Biishiki-gun got their win back in the Max Heart Tournament final a month later. Time for the rubber match!

Now 20 years old, Marika Kobashi is challenging for her first singles title to prove she has grown up. There is some jealousy behind the move because she didn’t like seeing Hikari Noa win the IP Title before she did.
