6. Shunma Katsumata Produce – Hardcore 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yuki Ueno, Shunma Katsumata and MAO when Takeshita pinned Katsumata with a Rolling Cradle (19:26).

Day 2 of Beer Garden had The 37KAMIINA all face each other in a Hardcore 4 Way Match. Tables, ladders and chairs were placed around the ring for them to use but each wrestler brought out their own weapons too. MAO brought out a massage gun and homemade shield, Yuki Ueno had training equipment, Konosuke Takeshita had a bat covered in toy blocks and Shunma Katsumata had a plastic box full of toy blocks inside. Since this match was put together by Katsumata he asked the others to join him in a chair duel. They did so but the other three later put Katsumata through a table. MAO also put Ueno through a plastic box and chairs with an Avalanche Package Piledriver. Katsumata threw his boxes at everyone and filled the ring with toy blocks. He gave Takeshita a Hurricanrana onto the pile but Takeshita continued the momentum and rolled his opponent into a pinning combination for the win. After the match Katsumata had to call the rest of the unit back into the ring so they could close out the show together. He asked each of them what they thought of the match but cut off every answer so he could say how awesome he is. He then listed all of the championships The 37KAMIINA are fighting for next month. They will become the central stove of DDT and will turn the company into a sauna!

Makoto Oishi was in attendance to watch Junretsu face MEN’S Club in his produce match. Yusuke Okada won the match in Oishi’s place but Oishi insists he is not his substitute. Despite that, he gives his support to Okada to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Jun Akiyama next month. He also wants to book Akiyama versus MEN’S Teioh in a singles match after their first time meeting today. Both Akiyama and Teioh joked that Oishi shouldn’t be booking singles matches between two wrestlers over 50.

The CyberFight Concurso was a chance for DDT’s bodybuilders to strut their stuff in their underwear. That idea was almost ruined when Tetsuya Endo pinned Gorgeous Matsuno in under a minute. Hisaya Imabayashi told Endo to restart the match because Matsuno is his dad’s friend. The match began again, they repeated the spot and this time Matsuno kicked out. However Matsuno then gave Low Blows to everyone in the ring, causing the match to get thrown out. A winner had to be determined so everyone decided on a pose off. They also forced Imabayashi to take part in it. The audience voted for the winner and they chose Imabayashi!

DAMNATION met their mirror opposites when Chris Brookes, Antonio Honda & Super Sasadango Machine showed up as IyasareNATION! Brookes was Chrisma Brookes, Honda was Mad Anton and Sasadango was Yoshihiro Hino. That last one made Yuji Hino laugh. In a reversal, Mad Paulie took Honda’s comedy spot and told his own Gongitsune joke through grunts. He also got the pin on Honda to win in the end.

The 3 Way Match ended in a 5 minute draw so Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Naya and Naomi Yoshimura decided on a sumo tournament to settle on a winner. Higuchi was the first person to win twice in a row so he was determined the winner.

Every now and then Soma Takao reminds everyone he is influenced by CIMA. He did it here by beating Keigo Nakamura with the Perfect Driver.

Whatever it is she is planning, she will take charge over it.

The Texas Tornado Charinco Death Match means anything involving bicycles are legal! Sanshiro Takagi put the match together to celebrate a successful repair job on the Dramatic Dream bike after Kenoh broke it at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. His opponent SHINGO is a relatively new wrestler from HEAT-UP. However his main career is in pro cycling with over 100 race wins under his belt.

Shinjuku FACE

6. Drunk Match: HARASHIMA Vs Daisuke Sasaki
7. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: Jun Akiyama, Yuki Ueno, Konosuke Takeshita, Tetsuya Endo, Kazusada Higuchi, Naomi Yoshimura

The luck of the fan lottery might make Akiyama and Takeshita team together in the middle of their rivalry.

I can’t remember if HARASHIMA is a happy drunk or not. He shouldn’t be following Sasaki’s habits, that’s for sure.

The biggest feud in wrestling that nobody ever talks about, and for good reason, is back for another year. The DDT GM Hisaya Imabayashi takes another swing at the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda. Just don’t embarrass yourself again, Imabayashi.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021”, 15/08/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kininashi Wanaru ~The Universe In My Head~ Match: X Vs X
2. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Shinya Aoki (c/c) Vs MAO
3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

Yesterday Makoto Oishi made Shunma Katsumata submit and then demanded a KO-D Tag Team Titles shot. He is the leader of Junretsu so Akiyama has to go along with another big title match against Takeshita just one week before he defends the KO-D Openweight Title against him.

Speaking of double titles, Shinya Aoki now holds the DDT Extreme Title and the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. He has to defend both but he is busy falling for scams and losing his savings in the process. MAO was chosen to be his next opponent.

In news that makes zero difference to us non-Japanese speakers, the DDT Extreme Title has been renamed to… the DDT Extreme Title. In Japanese they are changing the name from DDT EXTREME級王座 to DDT EXTREME王座. So they’re just getting rid of 級 which means weight class or grade. I and everyone else always ignored that bit for the Extreme Title so nothing changes for us. While I’m at it I’m going to stop typing UNIVERSAL in upper case for the DDT Universal Title so I can keep things consistent.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Electric Current Explosion 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh Vs Kuro-chan, Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Hikari Noa
1. Double Ring Double Single Match: Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda
1. Double Ring Double Single Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
3. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
4. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Sasaki keeps getting quick wins over Ueno, all thanks to kicking him in the groin. Ueno wants to fight Sasaki in a clean match for once but he also realises this is just who Sasaki is. With that said, Ueno feels the need to defend the Universal Title no matter which version of Sasaki shows up. Sasaki accepts the match but warns that the humiliation he keeps putting him through is not good for Ueno’s career in the long run.

You are not reading the list wrong, there are currently two Match #1s. Since there will be two wrestling rings set up on site, DDT decided to put two singles matches that will both take place at the same time, one in each ring. There was not enough space on the card to do Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda and Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata one after the other so this was the compromise.

Two new debuts will take place on the show as part of a secret project DDT has been putting together. The DDT Teenage Project is a new class of young pro wrestlers that have been training in DDT’s dojo. The first two wrestlers to debut are El Unicorn (13) and Ilusion (18). There are two others currently in training and DDT are looking for more male students aged 15-18. DDT are still holding regular tryouts for new trainees over 18 alongside this project. This class is completely separate from DDT’s regular dojo training and the goal is to eventually launch a new sub-brand of wrestling shows for these wrestlers. El Unicorn stands out because his age is below the range allowed. There’s evidence out there suggesting who the kid will be under the mask. Not naming names but it’s obviously a certain kid DDT was already booking and training before the pandemic hit. Also Rekka on Twitter spoils it by pointing out the pun in El Unicorn’s name.


DDT “MAX BUMP 2021 TOUR IN NIIGATA” Results

*V1 for Smile Pissari.

Smile Pissari recorded their first title defence one week after becoming the new KO-D Tag Team Champions. The match also served as a preview for Jun Akiyama Vs HARASHIMA coming this June. A title change nearly happened when Akiyama gave Yuji Okabayashi the Exploder Suplex. Makoto Oishi went in for the kill by using the Fujiyama Knee Lock but that was broken up by HARASHIMA using the Somato on him. HARASHIMA used the same move on Akiyama while Okabayashi dropped Oishi with a Power Bomb. The finish then came when Okabayashi pinned Oishi with the Golem Splash. After the match Okabayashi told HARASHIMA it is an honour to team with him. He also said HARASHIMA looks good holding a tag team championship but he looks best with a singles title! HARASHIMA thanked the fans for travelling to the show during bad weather in the area.

It’s been around a year and a half since DDT was last in Niigata. For Super Sasadango Machine it felt like five. That doesn’t mean he missed the place. No, he’s grown tired of his hometown and is sick of pretending the local food is delicious. So Sasadango is joining DAMNATION with Daisuke Sasaki’s permission! He gets to wrestle five times a month and get paid 200,000 yen for it. What a deal! The move turned the 6-Man Tag match into a 4 Vs 2 Handicap. Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda were in trouble until Honda called in Toui Kojima for help. Kojima arrived carrying a bag of food from a nearby Italian restaurant and Honda convinced Sasadango to try it. Sasadango took off his mask, ate the food and his eyes went wide open. It’s the most delicious meal he’s ever eaten! Sasadango immediately quit DAMNATION and rejoined the other team to fight for Niigata. Unfortunately, Sasaki countered the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock into the Cross Facelock and Sasadango tapped out.

Tetsuya Endo said his win over Yusuke Okada was too easy. He doesn’t care what Okada wants to do in DDT, he will never surpass him! Okada himself seems to agree today’s result was a major setback for him. Whatever positive evaluation he got from his match with Yuki Ueno last month must have got him carried away. He scored himself -100 for his performance.

Today is Gorgeous Matsuno’s 60th birthday! DDT had a big match put together for him but Kazuki Hirata ruined it by getting himself disqualified 16 seconds in. Hisaya Imabayashi called them all idiots. Why did Hirata attack MAO with a chair when he normally never does that? Why did Yukinori Matsui call for the DQ when he could at least pretend he didn’t see it? Why did they start fighting before Matsuno’s friends and Sanshiro Takagi could get into the ring for the bouquet presentation? He ordered the match to restart so Matsuno could be treated like the star like he’s supposed to be. Matsuno did his entrance again and received the bouquet from his friends and Takagi in the ring. Once the commemorative photo was taken, the rematch began. Hirata attacked MAO with the chair again and this time Matsui ignored it. Matsuno got to be the hero by stopping Hirata’s chair attack. Danshoku Dieno got rid of Shunma Katsumata with the Danshoku Driver and Matsuno got to do the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow onto MAO. He set MAO up for the Nembutsu Power Bomb but MAO countered it into a Jackknife Pin to steal the win. Imabayashi complained at The 37KAMIINA for ruining Matsuno’s birthday but Matsuno suddenly cut him off. Matsuno explained that pro wrestling is a serious game. He fought seriously today and he lost. This is reality that will motivate him to do better tomorrow. Matsuno thanked the fans for coming to see his match and told them his next goal is to wrestle at 70 years old. He then sang everyone a song and everyone celebrated with him.

Keigo Nakamura was rendered unconscious after his match with Eruption. But somehow in a knocked out state he tried to pin Saki Akai with a School Boy in a failed attempt to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Akai kicked out at two and Yukio Sakaguchi kicked Nakamura for daring to do such a thing, whether he realized it or not.

*Eruption fails in V3. Smile Pissari becomes the 69th KO-D Tag Team Champions!
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) defeated Danshoku Dieno with the Chinko Clutch Exploder Suplex (23:37).
*V2 for Jun Akiyama.

There was one message Danshoku Dieno wanted to give the DDT fans today. If DDT is Shonen Jump then Dieno wants to be Gataro☆Man! The audience was warned that Dieno would be giving everyone the middle finger during his entrance so they were encouraged to do it back to him. He had his own crew with him too while Jun Akiyama was backed by the rest of Junretsu. Dieno’s wrestling style annoyed his opponent but couldn’t fully throw Akiyama off his game. A misfired Lip Lock took Yukinori Matsui out of action so Dieno called on Makoto Oishi to help him but Oishi was too conflicted to do anything. When Akiyama kicked out of a Moonsault, Dieno called upon the Video Team to play a video. It was of Dieno backstage telling a story to distract Akiyama in real time. That allowed Dieno to give Akiyama the Lip Lock and True Danshoku Driver for another nearfall. Dieno went extreme by pulling down the back of his tights and keeping them barely covering his modesty. He went for another Moonsault but Akiyama rolled out of the way. Fighting back against the sight of Dieno in his current state, Akiyama hit Knee Strikes and the Exploder but couldn’t put Dieno away. Akiyama had to grab Dieno by the crotch and give him the one of a kind Chinko Clutch Exploder Suplex for the victory.

Oishi rushed over to check on Dieno after the match. Dieno was able to get back up and bow to the audience before leaving, still with his gear barely covering him. Akiyama tried calling for Dieno to come back out but instead HARASHIMA walked down to the ring. HARASHIMA praised the champion for beating everyone DDT has thrown at him so far but Akiyama hasn’t defeated him yet. HARASHIMA loves DDT more than anyone else and he loves the KO-D Openweight Title the same way. Akiyama turned over to Hisaya Imabayashi and told him to book Akiyama Vs HARASHIMA on the biggest stage. He wants it on 6th June in Saitama Super Arena for “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”! Akiyama also asked for a match against HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi for the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Oishi as his partner. Okabayashi walked out and everyone found out the next DDT show he is available for is in Niigata on 18th April so they can do the tag title match there.

Smile Pissari became the new KO-D Tag Champions by beating Eruption. Okabayashi’s head was too large for Kazusada Higuchi to apply the Brain Claw on. Yukio Sakaguchi put HARASHIMA in the Sleeper Hold but he was low enough for Okabayashi to grab and pick up into a Power Bomb. HARASHIMA followed up with the Somato for the three count. He thanked Okabayashi and the support from the fans for helping him win today. Okabayashi celebrated by saying his catchphrase. “Pissari!” Backstage Eruption said they intend to get a title rematch by winning the Ultimate Tag League.

So it turns out Konosuke Takeshita is taking time away from DDT to wrestle in AEW. If he is in America to evolve then Shunma Katsumata wants to go to Finland to evolve his love of saunas. But first The 37KAMIINA were put in danger by DAMNATION. In particular, Yuki Ueno found out first hand how powerful Soma Takao can be. Meanwhile MAO was the one who had to deal with Yuji Hino by process of elimination. Daisuke Sasaki distracting the referee allowed Takao to give Ueno a Low Blow and from there he won with the Gin And Tonic. Takao called Ueno a weak champion and he should remember this for their DDT UNIVERSAL Title match on 4th May.

After six months away from wrestling, Naomi Yoshimura returned to announce his first match back. He’s been receiving treatment for his cervical injuries since November and he is cleared to wrestle again on 9th May. Yoshimura requested his former Nautilus partner Yuki Ueno to be his opponent for his return match.

Gorgeous Matsuno’s final wrestling match before his 60th birthday was a big deal. He came out wearing an outfit from his IWA Japan days. His match then ended in 24 seconds when Tetsuya Endo easily pinned him using a Headscissors. Imabayashi got angry at the result and called for a restart. The same Headscissors spot happened but this time Matsuno kicked out. He got to wrestle a full match pairing off with Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani. When things got tough for Matsuno, he tagged in Toru Owashi to keep the momentum going. Antonio Honda blinded Endo with Gongitsune, causing Endo to blindly give Shimatani the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb. Paulie was also blinded and he mistakenly squashed Shimatani with a Body Press. Matsuno got to do the Gorgeous Star Elbow and Honda followed up with the Diving Fist Drop for the win. Matsuno said he is thankful to continue wrestling into his 60s. However he didn’t become a pro wrestler until he was forty so he’s only been wrestling for 20 years. When he turns 60 next week it will be a new start for him. He wanted to continue his speech but Owashi took the microphone away from him.

There was a team of belt holders in the 8-Man Tag Match. Chris Brookes, Saki Akai and Yukio Naya are all champions. Yuki Iino brought out a regular belt to pose with them so he wouldn’t feel left out. Akai was singled out by Oishi & Akito until she was able to tag out. Kazuki Hirata jumped on Iino’s back and put the Hirata GO! glasses onto him to make him dance. Iino attacked everyone while dancing and then dropped Hirata with a Back Flip. Keigo Nakamura went for the Exquisite Springboard Moonsault onto Akai but Brookes pulled her out of harm’s way. Akai then pinned Nakamura with the Quetzalcoatl.

After the match Brookes and Akai shook hands. Akai then said she wanted to do something she’s been thinking about for a long time. She has previously won championships with Eruption and recently she’s been on the sideline watching her partners in singles title matches. She is currently the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion but she wants to fight for the DDT Extreme Title! Brookes agreed to the challenge and a Title Vs Title match between the two is booked for 4th May. Brookes hasn’t come up with a match stipulation yet but promises it will be something strange.

The debuting rookie Yuya Koroku was pitted against DDT’s latest signing Yusuke Okada. Koroku got to hit some Forearm Strikes, a Brainbuster and a Water Wheel Drop. Okada put him in a Crab Hold three times with the third time making Koroku submit. The two shook hands afterwards and Koroku bowed to the crowd. The rookie has been a trainee for around a year and a half but his training was paused for three months because of the pandemic. He wants to become bigger in size and make opponents say “I cannot beat Koroku.”

In the preshow match, Hideki Okatani beat the other rookie Toui Kojima. Okatani lead the match and provoked Kojima to attack him. He caught him with the Jumping Neckbreaker then used the Northern Lights Suplex for the finish.

At the start of the show Imabayashi announced the next KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles defence will happen on 4th May. Maki Itoh then promoted next weekend’s Tokyo Joshi Pro show at Korakuen Hall. She said the highlight will be her main eventing a Korakuen show for the first time in two years. There are other highlights but she thinks she is the best one.

Konosuke Takeshita made a request to take April off from DDT. He isn’t sick or injured. Instead he wants to take a chance to evolve into something stronger and needs to be away for a month to do it. Sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it? If it means what I think it means then I couldn’t be happier for the guy. Anyway he returns to DDT on 4th May.

BOYZ “BOYZ BE AMBITIOUS! 2021”, 04/04/2021

The mystery person asked for Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Masaoka to take place on the BOYZ show. Oh, and the email is signed under Jun Masaoka’s name. The email was forwarded to BOYZ producer Akito and after some consideration he agreed to put the match together.

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 9 ~THE SAME DAY AND SAME VENUE DECISIVE BATTLE WITH THE FATEFUL BOYZ! NEVER LOSE TO THOSE WHO ARE POPULAR! RAISE UP THE YAROS! SHOW OFF A MAN’S STORY OF BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS!~”, 04/04/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall 1st Floor

DDT’s newest signing Yusuke Okada really wants to be part of the BOYZ brand. Unfortunately everyone else thinks he is more suited to YaroZ whether he likes it or not. So for the BOYZ Vs YaroZ double booking, Okada will be wrestling on the YaroZ show.

DDT “APRIL FOOL 2021”, 11/04/2021

5. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Danshoku Dieno

There have been two wrestlers who have either stood up to Jun Akiyama or criticized his role in DDT. Akiyama just dispatched of Kazusada Higuchi so he now has to take care of Danshoku Dieno. Dieno accepted that Akiyama became part of DDT’s history when he signed a contract but the temptation of becoming KO-D Openweight Champion one more time means he cannot stay quiet anymore! If Akiyama hasn’t experienced full blown DDT before, he will now.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THAT’S J-PW”, 12/04/2021
WRESTLE UNIVERSE

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STILL INCOMPLETE”, 17/04/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Yuki Kamifuku (c) Vs Nao Kakuta
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino (c) Vs Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel
3. Princess Of Princess Title: Rika Tatsumi (c) Vs Maki Itoh

A criticism that has been aimed towards Nao Kakuta since she started wrestling for TJPW is that she is too normal to stand out. Even her challenge to Yuki Kamifuku for the International Princess Title was considered plain or even a bit boring according to the champion. Kakuta thinks it is fine to be normal. She can be called the Normal Of Normal Princess as far as she is concerned. Her other nickname is “Rat Chaser” (she used to have a catgirl gimmick) and she found her rat in the form of Kamifuku. All she has to do now is catch her! Kakuta also said that she has no senpai or kohai figures in TJPW because she came from somewhere else so she feels comfortable enough to stretch out and use her own fighting styles that she likes.

The spotlight shines on Super Sasadango Machine and Gorgeous Matsuno in Niigata.

Whether he wins the KO-D Tag Team Titles or not, Yuji Okabayashi will at least be around for another DDT show in April. In a match against Akiyama too.

Match #2. That is all.

Takumi Tsukamoto went from savvy to bloodthirsty at the last BASARA show. He didn’t fall for the trick handshake from Yasu Urano. Instead Tsukamoto got one up on Urano by choking him with a plastic bag. Look they might be getting rid of lighttubes in deathmatches soon, he’s looking for a replacement and the giant hammer isn’t cutting it.

DDT “DRAMATIC 2021 JANUARY SPECIAL” Results

January 28, 2021

DDT “DRAMATIC 2021 JANUARY SPECIAL”, 28/01/2021
Shinjuku FACE
162 Fans

1. Akito & Chris Brookes defeated Mizuki Watase & Toui Kojima when Brookes submitted Kojima with a Modified Armbar (7:49).
2. DDT Variety Team, Pentagram Ambition!: Kazuki Hirata defeated Danshoku Dieno, Saki Akai, Mad Paulie and Gorgeous Matsuno when Hirata pinned Dieno with the Gaydo Clutch (7:28).
3. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda defeated Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Keigo Nakamura when Honda pinned Nakamura with the Diving Fist Drop (9:36).
4. DDT Megatonweight Single Match: Yuji Hino defeated Yukio Naya with the Fucking BOMB (7:49).
5. Tetsuya Endo, Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi, Hideki Okatani & Yusuke Okada when Endo submitted Okatani with the Yurikamome (11:59).
6. Eruption Vs DDT Sauna Club!: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno by TKO when Sakaguchi used the Sleeper Hold on Ueno (15:59).

The main event was a preview of both the upcoming DDT UNIVERSAL Title and KO-D Tag Team Title matches scheduled for February’s two big shows. It was the tag champions who came out on top with Kazusada Higuchi using the Brain Claw to nullify Konosuke Takeshita while Yukio Sakaguchi went to town on Yuki Ueno. Sakaguchi hit the God’s Right Knee then repeatedly hit High Kicks with both of his legs. The match had to be stopped when Ueno was put into a Sleeper Hold and he lost consciousness. Eruption held up both the KO-D Tag Title and the UNIVERSAL Title belts to celebrate. Sakaguchi said they will defend the Tag Titles against Takeshita no matter what. He also warned Ueno that this is the fight he will be in at Culttz Kawasaki. After they left the ring, Ueno grabbed the microphone. He admittedly now regrets nominating Sakaguchi to be his challenger but he’ll still be holding the UNIVERSAL Title high above his head in Kawazaki. He and Takeshita are still alive!

Hideki Okatani came close to pinning Tetsuya Endo with a Backslide Pin but it was countered into the Yurikamome Hold to give DAMNATION the victory. Endo wouldn’t let go after the match, causing Yusuke Okada to stomp on him to break it. Daisuke Sasaki and Makoto Oishi then jumped into the fight but things quickly calmed down. Endo taunted Junretsu by telling them they have no chance beating DAMNATION without Jun Akiyama. He will assess how much of a threat Akiyama will be when his return match happens on 31st January.

Big boy Yuji Hino is being targeted by the other big boys in DDT and he just does not understand why. Yukio Naya once more tried to ambush Hino this time right before their match started. And once again the plan failed and Hino slapped him apart. Naya did put up a fight in the match itself but he fell to the Fucking BOMB and seems to no longer be a problem for Hino. Now he has a new problem to deal with. Yuki Iino climbed into the ring moments after the match ended and he hit Hino with the Spear. Akito & Shunma Katsumata got in and held an excited Iino back while Hino asked Mad Paulie and Yukinori Matsui why DDT’s younger wrestlers don’t like him? He doesn’t know what is going on but he will fight back. He also appreciates Paulie helping him in this situation.

It was announced at the start of the show that the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is returning to Japan. The current champion, a copy of The Young Bucks autobiography “Killing The Business” was being shipped over from America along with the title belt. Later on during the show, Kazuki Hirata was being chased around backstage by Danshoku Dieno over the result of their 5 Way Match. Hirata lost Dieno in a waiting room and noticed a mystery package on the table. He opened it to find the book and the Iron Man Title! Hirata called in Matsui to count him pinning the book but Dieno arrived in time to stop it and chase Hirata away. The book will now defend the Iron Man Title on the 28th February Korakuen Hall show.

Gorgeous Matsuno announced his 60th birthday commemorative show scheduled for 18th April will be rescheduled because the venue is being used as a vaccination centre during that period.

Today is MAO’s 24th birthday!


DDT “DDT TV SHOW! #12” Results

1. Makoto Oishi defeated Hideki Okatani with the Fujiyama Knee Lock (5:20).
2. Playfulness Series Act 2: Danshoku Dieno defeated Gorgeous Matsuno with a Crucifix Pin (6:49).
3. Tetsuya Endo & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Antonio Honda & Keigo Nakamura when Sasaki pinned Nakamura with a School Boy (10:34).
4. DDT Sauna Club Stepping Together!: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno defeated HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Chris Brookes & Yukio Naya when Ueno pinned Naya with the BME (14:07).
5. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Akito, Kazuki Hirata & Shota defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai (c) when Shota pinned Akai with the Gannosuke Clutch (14:36).
*Eruption fails in V4. Young Communication Generation becomes the 42nd KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

What a shocker, Eruption loses the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles to Young Communication Generation! The collective of Akito, Kazuki Hirata & Shota pulled off a gigantic upset in the main event. But it wasn’t from Hirata sneaking the pin on Yukio Sakaguchi like before. Instead Eruption looked like they had the match in the bag. Kazusada Higuchi was handling things until Akito pulled him out of the ring. Shota lured Saki Akai into throwing a strike then caught her hand and used the Gannosuke Clutch for the title change! Shota told the others he is glad he stepped into the ring at “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020” to make the challenge. Akito congratulated Shota for finally winning a DDT championship bringing up a talk they had after a match together years ago. Back then Shota told Akito he wanted to win all the prizes in DDT. He was surprised Akito remembered that. Hirata was still scared of how Sakaguchi would react to the result but still spoke on the microphone. His failed title shot at Korakuen Hall wasn’t the happy ending he wanted. But today the sequel gave him that happy ending! Even though the three of them are all in their thirties now, they want to reestablish the Young Communication brand of shows! Only 30 people attended their original shows but they think they can do 10 times that now.

The entire DDT Sauna Club got what they wanted, an 8-Man Tag for all of them to team together. They isolated Yukio Naya when Yuki Ueno caught him with a Dropkick. Konosuke Takeshita & MAO gave him a Double Brainbuster, Shunma Katsumata followed with the Stuka Splash and Yuki Ueno finished him with the BME. All of them interviewed each other to celebrate and credited the use of saunas for being at their highest level today. Backstage Takeshita, MAO & Ueno took a commemorative photo together. They then left when Katsumata joined in the pose.

Daisuke Sasaki had Keigo Nakamura beaten with the Cross Facelock when Antonio Honda entered the ring. He was meant to break the hold but he tripped on the ropes and hurt his knee. Still, Honda wanted to tell his Gongitsune story afterward and that made Sasaki drop his guard. Nakamura of all people got angry at Honda for interrupting his serious fight with Sasaki. He then asked to join DAMNATION so they could all gang up on Honda! There was a 3 on 1 beatdown until Honda hit them all with Gongitsune Eye Pokes. When Nakamura saw that Tetsuya Endo was weakened, he ended his alliance with DAMNATION and joined Honda again. They both went for Gongitsune Nipple Grabs but Sasaki ducked and they grabbed each other by mistake. Endo used a Swan Dive move on both of them to hurt their nipples even more and Sasaki pinned Nakamura with a School Boy.

It took Gorgeous Matsuno four tries at doing the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow. When he finally did the move correctly, Danshoku Dieno easily rolled him into a Crucifix Pin for the three count. After the match Matsuno said it doesn’t matter if he breaks his arms or legs, he has a reason to want the O-40 Title back. He then announced he will have a show in Fukushima celebrating his 60th birtday on 18th April. He needs to be the O-40 Champion again to make that show a success!

In the meeting between two Junretsu members, Makoto Oishi defeated Hideki Okatani. They praised each other for a good match afterward.


Daisuke Contra Daisuke, Sauna Club, Air Time Bomb Death Match, Takanashi Returns

2. T-Hawk, El Lindaman & Mad Paulie Vs Yasu Urano, Antonio Honda & Gouma Ryu
3. Hiroshi Yamato Vs Amigo Suzuki
4. Tetsuya Endo & Ryuichi Sekine Vs Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei
5. Soma Takao Vs Yusuke Kubo
6. Daisuke Contra Daisuke: Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa Vs Yuko Miyamoto & Daisuke Sekimoto

The main event has an extra edge added to it. Daisuke Sasaki thinks there are too many people named Daisuke or Sasaki in pro wrestling. For his 15th Anniversary he wants to hunt down a Daisuke and take his name. So he demands Daisuke Sekimoto to put his name on the line in a Daisuke Contra Daisuke match! The loser loses his first name!

All is good and calm in DAMNATION again so the wrestlers Sasaki originally banished from the show are allowed come back in. It means Sasaki doesn’t have to work double duty anymore. Let Tetsuya Endo & Ryuichi Sekine worry about The Brahman Brothers now.

With MAO back in action the entire DDT Sauna Club can be together in the ring again. MAO wants this friend group to all team up together for a match.

Is Gorgeous Matsuno obsessed with the O-40 Title? He lost the championship to Toru Owashi last week and Danshoku Dieno came out to stand up for him. Instead Matsuno thought Dieno was trying to push him out of the O-40 Title picture so he could get the belt for himself. The two face off and whoever wins should have nobody stopping them from getting the next title shot.

6. Makoto Oishi 42 Year Old Local Triumph! Fuji Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match: Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase Vs HARASHIMA, Chris Brookes & Kazuki Hirata

Maybe the Sauna Club becomes a regular fixture? Yuki Ueno is without a unit, MAO and Shunma Katsumata are considering becoming a tag team again. Maybe merge it with ALL OUT? Being a VP must be stressful for Akito so a sauna trip can help him relax. It would do Yuki Iino some good too. Why stop there? Get DISASTER BOX involved. DAMNTION too. All of DDT becomes the Sauna Club! ALL OF CYBERFIGHT BECOMES THE SAUNA CLUB! THE WHOLE WORLD BECOMES THE SAUNA CLUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Fuminori Abe

Today Masahiro Takanashi announced he will be coming back from his injury! He is holding a self-produced voluntary show on 29th January for his first match back since his ankle injury back in March. Fuminori Abe will be his opponent, the same man he lost the Union MAX Title to when the injury happened. Takanashi said this was always the match he wanted for his return. He made that decision the night he was injured.

Takanashi is not entirely out of the woods yet. Next March he is scheduled to get a plate surgically removed from his left knee and also a bolt from his right knee that he’s had for the last 10 years. He doesn’t know how much he will be able to wrestle after 29th January but if the condition of his knees are good then you will see him in DDT and ChocoPro. But for now he is only focused on his return match.

Wrestlers advertised to appear include Chris Brookes, Yukio Sakaguchi, Isami Kodaka, Yasu Urano, the UMA Corps and members of Gatoh Move.

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Chris Brookes (c) Vs Yuki Ueno
7. Special Single Match: Jun Akiyama Vs Konosuke Takeshita
8. KO-D Openweight Title – BLACK OUT Presents: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

The winner of the main event will receive 2,000,000 yen and a year’s worth of BLACK OUT energy drink. Daisuke Sasaki is still being serious when he says he will retire if he loses. He and Tetsuya Endo got into another fight during the press conference. Suits were ripped during this.

Naomi Yoshimura will be taking a break from wrestling after “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020” to recover from his cervical injuries. He has been working through back pain all this time since his return last year. Yoshimura promises to be in perfect condition and will be even bigger in size when he returns. His goal when he is back in the ring is to beat Konosuke Takeshita, Kasusada Higuchi and Yuki Ueno. His absence for now means the end of the Nautilus team with Ueno.

Ueno is getting more grief from Chris Brookes now that Nautilus is taking a break from each other. Brookes handed him a bouquet of flowers for losing the KO-D Tag Team Titles yesterday. Brookes handed it over while acting like somebody died. Ueno whacked Brookes over his head with the flowers.

DDT isn’t sure what to do with Shinya Aoki’s sudden decision to cancel the DDT Extreme Title match. Sanshiro Takagi thinks it is a negotiation tactic of some sort and is determined to make the match happen instead of winning the title by forfeit. If Aoki wants to drop the Weapon Rumble stipulation then Takagi will consider it but there is nothing out there to suggest why Aoki doesn’t want the match to happen. He wonders if Aoki refuses to sign the match contract because it reminds him of when he signed his marriage registration and also when he signed his divorce registration.

DDT “DDT TV SHOW! #11”, 08/11/2020
DDT TV SHOW Studio

1. O-40 Title: Gorgeous Matsuno (c) Vs Toru Owashi

Toru Owashi was tricked into accepted the O-40 Title shot when he was promised all of the merchandise earnings from the show. It was only immediately afterwards he remembered it is being taped in an empty studio.
