196 Fans

2. KUDO & Kota Umeda defeated MAO & Yuki Ueno when Umeda pinned Ueno with the PK (9:01).
3. Gongitsune Vs Former Idol Wrestler!: Makoto Oishi defeated Antonio Honda with a European Clutch (11:10).
4. 3 Way Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi and Joey Ryan & Samara when Endo pinned Takanashi with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (7:39).
5. Danshoku Dino, Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi defeated Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii & Mizuki Watase when Dino pinned Hirata with the Screw Danshoku Driver (8:18).
6. HARASHIMA & Soma Takao defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takao pinned Iwasaki with the Gin And Tonic (11:58).
7. The Mountain Of Akagi Is Far Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie when Akito submitted Paulie with the Perfect Figure 4 Leg Lock (14:46).

In the first preview of the “JUDGEMENT 2018” main event, ALL OUT beat DAMNATION but neither Konosuke Takeshita or Shuji Ishikawa were part of the finish. Both of them wound up outside the ring after Takeshita Clotheslined Ishikawa over the ropes. Akito took down Mad Paulie after targeting his legs and trapped him in the Perfect Figure 4 Leglock to win. Akito told Takeshita afterwards he will support him on the front line leading up to Sumo Hall. Takeshita said he got to train against the power of Ishikawa’s Lariats as well as his Knee Strikes today. They then invited Shunma Katsumata into the ring to talk about his upcoming DDT Extreme Title match on 25th February. Takeshita ended the show by announcing the main event for Korakuen Hall on 25th February. He is teaming up with HARASHIMA to take on Ishikawa and Daisuke Sekimoto!

Although Kazusada Higuchi’s team lost today, he still gestured at HARASHIMA that he will take his KO-D Tag Team Title belt. Higuchi is facing Naomichi Marufuji one on one in a preview of the tag title match.

Kazuki Hirata complained to Danshoku Dino about his matchmaking for their trios bout. Hirata didn’t want to team with his usual T2Hide partners because he thinks they have no future. There is a new generation in DDT featuring wrestlers like Keisuke Ishii, Mizuki Watase and himself. Based on these comments, Dino changed the match to himself, Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi against Hirata, Ishii & Watase in a battle between two generations. Dino’s team won but Watase had something to say afterwards. The New Generation weren’t able to beat the Super Generation today. But when Watase returns to Maebashi he promises to advance beyond the Super Generation! The two sides agreed to a rematch when DDT returns to Maebashi.

Daisuke Sasaki tried to flirt with Samara during the 3 Way Tag Match by asking her to make children with him. Samara was disgusted and pushed him away. He tried to give her the Vietnam Driver II but Joey Ryan saved her with a Super Kick to Sasaki. The match broke down until Tetsuya Endo and Masahiro Takanashi were left in the ring. Endo countered the Takatonic into the Torture Rack Bomb to win the match for DAMNATION.

Makoto Oishi was able to pin Antonio Honda with a European Clutch after Honda missed the Diving Fist Drop.

Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno continue to go after each other and had to be kept apart after their match again.

The kickboxing match will consist of 45 one minute rounds until there is a winner. Gravure model Shihomi Yoshino will be the ring girl. However what usually happens is the ring girl’s presence motivates everyone except the fighters in the match. Also Kohei Sato looks like the kind of person who would literally get away with murder so good luck Nobuhiro Shimatani!

DDT “JUDGEMENT 2018 ~DDT 21ST ANNIVERSARY~”, 25/03/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. World Crazy Wrestler No. 1 Decision Battle In DDT: Joey Ryan Vs Colt Cabana
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Super Sasadango Machine (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio
3. Dramatic Dream Match: Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Ken Ohka Vs Great Muta, Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo
4. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa

The D-King Grand Prix is done and dusted so now we move on to the next big event, DDT’s 21st Anniversary show. Konosuke Takeshita and Shuji Ishikawa headlines the event in a rematch from “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016”. The situation now is similar to back then. Takeshita is the defending KO-D Openweight Champion and Ishikawa is the unstoppable giant coming to reclaim the belt.

Daisuke Sasaki claims that The Great Muta agreed to become a DAMNATION pet. Probably not the best idea for Sasaki to put words in his mouth.

Super Sasadango Machine has been ordered to defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title at least twice a week every week until “JUDGEMENT 2018” takes place. If he fails to do this then Producer Danshoku Dino will turn his match with Jiro Kuroshio into a non-title match. Sasadango has come up with an idea to rack up his title defences. He has openly invited local celebrities and other personalities to visit his office in Niigata to try and win the Iron Man Title from him. In return he will use his and DDT’s Twitter accounts to promote whatever it is the guests are currently working on. If Sasadango kicks out of their attack and escapes the room then it counts as a successful defence. The plan is off to a good start and he already achieved his minimum two defences for this week earlier today.

The list of booked wrestlers who are yet to have a confirmed match are Naomichi Marufuji, Daisuke Sekimoto, Mike Bailey, Ethan Page, LiLiCo, Yoshiko, Keisuke Okuda, Reika Saiki and Lady Beard.


DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONTON~” Results

February 26, 2017

DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONTON~”, 26/02/2017
Maebashi Green Dome Sub Arena
159 Fans

1. Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Oishi pinned Hirata and Shimatani with a Double Horizontal Cradle (11:00).
2. Soma Takao & Akito defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Guanchulo when Takao pinned Guanchulo with the Gin And Tonic (12:12).
3. Masahiro Takanashi defeated Mad Paulie by Countout (11:07).
4. Real No Fear Vs DNA!: Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Mizuki Watase when Takayama pinned Watase with the Running Knee Lift (13:21).
5. Shuten-dōji Vs DAMNATION!: KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Sakaguchi pinned Endo with the Right Knee Of God (12:45).
6. Maebashi Specialty! DDT Does Not Know The Gunman Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda defeated HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano when Takeshita pinned Urano with the Roll Through German Suplex (20:10).

As the road to Saitama Super Arena continues, Konosuke Takeshita finally gets his first victory over HARASHIMA in their series of tag matches. Takeshita introduced each member of Happy Motels to the audience after the match and also included Yumehito Imanari who was working as the cameraman. Takeshita hopes he will return to Maebashi as the KO-D Openweight Champion for a singles match.

Tetsuya Endo refused to answer any questions during the entire post-match interview after he was pinned by Yukio Sakaguchi.

Danshoku Dino teased Kazusada Higuchi before their match, bragging that Yoshihiro Takayama is with him instead of Higuchi. Higuchi tried to convince him that he didn’t care but Takayama misunderstood and asked Higuchi why he wants his lips so much? Mizuki Watase also made it awkward by telling Higuchi they could be a couple too. When Dino & Takayama won the match Dino said that they are quickly becoming an established couple. Takayama said he is free to love anyone. He then told Higuchi he will not turn to a guy who can’t kiss in public.

Masahiro Takanashi used Mad Paulie’s collar to tie his feet together outside the ring, counting him out. When Paulie was freed by one of the trainees after the match he attacked him with Hammer Punches.

Soma Takao & Akito are both confident they will win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles in Saitama because neither of them have been pinned since Takao joined Smile Squash.

After spending so long in dark matches, Nobuhiro Shimatani now wants to do whatever he can to stand out and gain the attention of everybody. His first attempt at this was joining in with Kazuki Hirata’s dancing entrance. He joined in with the dance again during the match until both he and Hirata were rolled over into a double pin by Makoto Oishi.

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

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!
