Soma Takao is now a part of Smile Squash and this weekend is his first match as a member.

Nobuhiro Shimatani has one more chance to lose the King Of Dark Title before the DNA relaunch. Unfortunately he was defeated in his last two defences to Gota Ihashi. Will the third time be a charm?

In fact she appeared at her press conference wearing a white swimsuit and posing for the cameras. She said she is learning about Tokyo Joshi through DDT UNIVERSE and is looking forward to being in the same ring as Saki Akai. She would love to form a tag team with Akai and they can be called SM Gun together.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2016 IN MAEBASHI ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONTON~”, 10/07/2016
Maebashi Green Dome Sub Arena
226 Fans

1. 3 Way Tag Match: Toru Owashi & Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata and Akito & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takao pinned Katsumata with the Gin And Tonic (9:19).
2. Grudge Settlement! Avenge Kawaguchi In Maebashi! Maebashi Specialty Special Single Match: KENSO defeated Kazuki Hirata with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (10:19).
3. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masa Takanashi & Kota Umeda defeated Danshoku Dino, Kazusada Higuchi & Gota Ihashi when Sakaguchi pinned Ihashi with the Right Knee Of God (12:37).
4. Keisuke Ishii & Guanchulo defeated Tetsuya Endo & Kouki Iwasaki when Ishii pinned Iwasaki with the Tiger Suplex (9:47).
5. Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Sasaki submitted Watase with the Cross Facelock (13:22).
6. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when HARASHIMA pinned Honda with the Somato (16:47).

Shigehiro Irie shook hands with Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie after their match. Sasaki even wished Irie luck on his upcoming trip to America. Irie now has only one match left in DDT before he leaves.

Keisuke Ishii is not pleased with Soma Takao challenging for the AJPW Jr. Heavyweight Title. Ishii thinks nobody has a stronger desire to win that championship than himself. He refuses to acknowledge Takao’s challenge and declared he will get a title shot instead.

KENSO attacked Kazuki Hirata during his dance before Match #2. He argued with the noisy fans for cheering Hirata then put on his own pair of HIRATA GO! glasses. He danced with Hirata and then pinned him with a Brainbuster. He complained to Amon Tsurumi after the match about having to team with Sanshiro Takagi on 17th July. He found out about the match while his wife was making him tom yum soup and it ruined his dinner. Tsurumi responded by suggesting KENSO might be in love with Takagi. All he ever talks about is coming to DDT so he can fight Takagi. He asked KENSO to put his hand on his chest and tell everyone how he truly feels. KENSO thought about it, yelled “Bakayaro!” and stormed off.


Takeshita Vs Endo, DDT Shilling Stuff, Takagi & KENSO Team (What Could Go Wrong?)

July 5, 2016

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 12”, 09/07/2016
Saitama Kasukabe Hall

1. When Case Take Anywhere! Owashi Siege Encirclement! 4 Way Match: Toru Owashi Vs Masa Takanashi Vs Yasu Urano Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga
2. Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Gota Ihashi Vs Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO
3. DAMNATION’s First Trio Match Stomping!: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Kouki Iwasaki & Guanchulo
4. Shigehiro Irie Vs Soma Takao
5. Infomercial Match – Dramatic Exercise Series: Super Sasadango Machine & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai
6. Akito Comeback Match: HARASHIMA & Akito Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Kota Umeda
7. Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda Vs Tetsuya Endo & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi

The emergence of Tetsuya Endo challenging Konosuke Takeshita for the KO-D Openweight Title has created a small rift in Happy Motels for now. Antonio Honda is siding with Takeshita while Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi is siding with Endo. This leads to a tag team match between the two teams in Saitama.

DDT is using the Infomercial Match to shill their own exercise equipment. Kazuki Hirata & Saka Akai are two of the faces of the Dramatic Exercise Series brand.

With only two Right To Challenge Contracts left in play and one of them soon to be cashed in, Toru Owashi is now a targeted man. He’s been very patient when it comes to getting his title shot but with every upcoming match he risks losing that chance.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2016 IN MAEBASHI ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONTON~”, 10/07/2016
Maebashi Green Dome Sub Arena

1. 3 Way Tag Match: Toru Owashi & Soma Takao Vs Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata Vs Akito & Nobuhiro Shimatani
2. Danshoku Dino, Kazusada Higuchi & Gota Ihashi Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Masa Takanashi & Kota Umeda
3. Tetsuya Endo & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Keisuke Ishii & Guanchulo
4. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie
5. Grudge Settlement! Avenge Kawaguchi In Maebashi! Maebashi Specialty Special Single Match: KENSO Vs Kazuki Hirata
6. Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda Vs HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano

KENSO still has beef with Sanshiro Takagi and that will be sorted out later. But he also has Kazuki Hirata bothering him. Will he swat him aside or fall under Hirata’s dancing spell?

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2016”, 17/07/2016
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Soma Takao & Akito Vs Masa Takanashi & Kota Umeda
2. Danshoku Dino, Super Sasadango Machine, Antonio Honda, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Saki Akai Vs Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata, Gota Ihashi, Guanchulo & Cherry
3. DAMNATION Vs NωA: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO
4. That’s Breaking The Rut! Saihai Of Super Talented GM Amon Tsurumi! Special Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & KENSO Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Mizuki Watase
5. Shigehiro Irie Send-off Match: Shigehiro Irie & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs HARASHIMA & Keisuke Ishii
6. Dick Togo Return Second Leg! Special Tag Match: Dick Togo & Yasu Urano Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo
*Tetsuya Endo will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

Amon Tsurumi has kept an eye over the feud between Sanshiro Takagi and KENSO this year and decided to do something about it. Both wrestlers have been on a rut in DDT so Tsurumi came up with the bright idea of making them team together to break that rut.

DDT “DNA 19”, 06/08/2016
Saitama Kasukabe Hall

1. Kazusada Higuchi Vs Kota Umeda

The fight is on to determine who the top wrestler of DNA really is. Kota Umeda has gained a new fire ever since he came back from his recent absence.

DDT “PETER PAN 2016 ~MOST HOT SUMMER IN THE WORLD~”, 28/08/2016
Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Terry Funk, Sanshiro Takagi & NOSAWA Rongai Vs Great Kabuki, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kota Umeda
2. DDT Extreme Title: LiLiCo (c) Vs Danshoku Dino
3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Ken Ohka & KAI (c) Vs X & X
4. KO-D Openweight Title – Watase Contra Watase: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa

The winner of LiLiCo Vs Danshoku Dino not only gets the DDT Extreme Title but also Mizuki Watase. The loser can never touch Watase ever again. That would put a dent on his relationship with LiLiCo for sure!

6. KUDO & Masa Takanashi defeated Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita when Takanashi pinned Honda with the Takatonic (18:20).

Masa Takanashi pinned Antonio Honda in the main event, possibly earning a DDT Extreme Title match in the process.

Danshoku Dino was left with a massive hand print on his ass after Keisuke Ishii hit him with multiple chops to that area during their match.

Yukio Sakaguchi says he feels like he has reawaken ever since he stood up to KUDO.

After beating Daisuke Sasaki in the opener, Yuji Okabayashi said he has less to fear in their upcoming KO-D Tag Team Title match. Sasaki said today’s match will have no relation to the title match. He also said he is calculating the timing of his Hurricanrana to make it more effective.

Gota Ihashi came out before the show demanding to have a King Of Dark Title match. He desperately does not want to face “Hollywood” Stalker Ichikawa in the dark match at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2015”. Amon Tsurumi brought Ryota Nakatsu, Kouki Iwasaki and Suguru Miyatake into the ring. Ihashi chose Nakatsu as his opponent and quickly lost. Ihashi then challenged Iwasaki and again quickly lost. He finally challenged Miyatake and once more took the pin. After gaining three unwanted title defences under his belt, Ihashi was told to leave the ring.

Champion Vs Champion seems to be all the rage lately. Kodaka is challenging FUMA to a Union Max Title match for a second time. FUMA beat Kodaka in his first defence back in March but did so with the help of his King Legion. No word yet on if Kodaka’s Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title will also be on the line.

3. FUMA, MEN’S Teioh & SAGAT Vs Shuji Ishikawa, Yusuke Kubo & Daichi Kazato
4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Isami Kodaka (c) Vs Madoka

A stipulation yet to be decided will be added to the Union Sekigun Vs King Legion 6-Man Tag.

Kazuhiko Ogasawara sent a letter to Union explaining he has taken Ryu Gouma under his wing. He calls Gouma an idiot who people laugh at but if he learns Karate he could beat people that are 7 and even 8 feet tall! The letter ends with Ogasawara saying the time has come for Karate-gun’s revival! Karate-gun was Union’s first enemy faction when the brand was re-established in 2005. The infamous feud featured Ogasawara fighting Poison Sawada in a Scorpion Death Match and later a Toxic Barbed Wired Board Death Match. I don’t think the same will happen here with Gouma.
