6. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: Jun Akiyama, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno, Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura when Endo pinned Yoshimura with the Shooting Star Press (21:26).

Beer Garden 2021 came to a close with the usual end to DDT’s tradition, a Fan Lottery 6-Man Tag Match. Members of the audience randomly picked the spots for each team and we ended up with Jun Akiyama, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo all on the same side. Any visual sign of tension disappeared when Endo came out dressed in his old wrestling gear and encouraged the others to reform Happy Motels for one night. Akiyama had to play the role of Antonio Honda in this case. The opposing team was Yuki Ueno, Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura. All of them came from the DNA generation so they paid tribute to the old brand by wearing DNA shirts and walking out to the DNA theme song. Akiyama played the part of Honda well by tripping onto his knee and doing the Bionic Elbow with his partners. The three of them worked so well they won the match with Endo getting the pin on Yoshimura.

After the match Endo said Beer Garden is all about having fun so he encouraged Akiyama and Takeshita to let go of their rivalry for the day. He also apologised to Takeshita for cheap shotting him at last year’s Beer Garden finale. Takeshita and Akiyama both agreed to get along but things will go back to normal when they fight each other for the KO-D Tag Team Titles on 15th August and the KO-D Openweight Title on the 21st. Endo also promoted his DAMNATION team defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles on that day too. They all raised their hands together to end the show… and then Endo Headbutted Takeshita. Endo stormed off backstage and stripped out of his old costume embarrassed that he had to act so nice towards Akiyama & Takeshita today.

Chris Brookes didn’t want to team with Keigo Nakamura so he purposely joined the other team to make it a 3 Vs 1 Handicap match. Brookes entered the ring with The 37KAMIINA but Nakamura begged him to team up as planned. Brookes agreed to do it but still helped Shunma Katsumata & MAO do some triple team spots. Brookes eventually took the match seriously but it wasn’t enough for them to win. Katsumata & MAO hit the Power Bomb/Blockbuster version of MADMAX (apparently any double team move involving Katsumata jumping off the top rope is called the MADMAX) on Nakamura to get the win. Afterwards Katsumata told MAO he found out Jun Kasai’s weakness. He doesn’t like stepping on Lego so they’re going to use them against him at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”!

Daisuke Sasaki was pulled from the show on short notice because he might have been in close contact with somebody who recently tested positive for the Coronavirus. The Drunk Match was cancelled and HARASHIMA was moved over to the Rock & Roll Death Match. There was another replacement as Antonio Honda suffered from love sickness and had to be replaced by A.YAZAWA in a rare appearance. Everyone in the match got drunk and danced whenever music played. YAZAWA and Saki Akai did karaoke. A recording of Shuji Ishikawa singing caused Mad Paulie to dance. Everyone fell asleep until Swan Lake played and they all did ballet together. YAZAWA then rolled over Kazuki Hirata to win the match.

Eruption once again got the better of DAMNATION once again in their latest preview match, this time with Yusuke Okada teaming with them. Yuji Hino was already drinking and decided to wrestle in his normal clothing. When he put Akito in a Sleeper Hold he flipped off the rest of his opponents. Eventually he got drunk and when he went to do the Diving Body Press off the top rope, he landed on Nobuhiro Shimatani instead of Yukio Sakaguchi. Hino needed Soma Takao’s help to get out of the ring and while that happened, Sakaguchi pinned Shimatani with the God’s Right Knee.

An accidental bump of heads between Danshoku Dieno and Hideki Okatani during the opening of the show led to them swapping bodies before their match. Dieno walked out wearing Okatani’s gear while Okatani ran out in Dieno’s costume acting just like him. Another clash of heads seemed to turn them back to normal. Dieno was himself again and he chased after Daisuke Kiso. However Okatani didn’t change and he got his hands on Yukinori Matsui. That officials had to call of the match as things got out of hand.

Sanshiro Takagi paid a lot of cash to repair the Dramatic Dream so he is going to get his money’s worth! He brought it out for the opening match, crashed into the combined centaur form of Yukio Naya & Yuki Iino and then crashed into his own partner Yuya Koroku. Iino then hit a Lariat on Koroku to take the win for his team.

The most important match of the week, nay, the month took place in the pre-show. It was the DDT GM Hisaya Imabayashi against the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda in the latest chapter of their never ending one sided rivalry. Imabayashi was spurned on by phonecalls of his increasingly disgruntled wife while Koda showed a more evil side to his wrestling abilities. Sadly for Imabayashi he fell to the Sleeper Hold and as a result won’t be welcomed back home by his family.

Midway through the show, Dieno & Iino confronted Imabayashi demanding to be made into a full time tag team. They kept coming up with sexual innuendos for team names like Osu Academy, The Wizard Of Osu and Will Osupreay. Imabayashi told them he will agree to their demand once they come up with a better tag team name.

Earlier today on the Ganbare☆Pro show, Yuna Manase made it known that she wants a match against Saki Akai. She crashed the DDT show along with Ken Ohka to challenge Akai directly. It is a match she wanted to have at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” and when that never happened it’s been bothering her ever since. Akai accepted the challenge and wants the match to happen in Fukuoka on 12th September. Manase said Ganpro already has a show in Itabashi that day but Ohka encouraged her to go do it. Manase offered to shake hands but Akai left her hanging.

Voice actor Tetsu Inada will be making appearances at the Hiragana Muscle shows in September.

394 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

3. Chris Brookes defeated Yusuke Okada with the Ground Octopus Stretch (12:54).
4. Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie defeated Naomi Yoshimura & Yukio Naya when Paulie pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash (9:31).
5. Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai defeated HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Keigo Nakamura when Higuchi pinned Nakamura with the Brain Claw Slam (13:01).
6. Shiroishi Specialty Special Tag Match: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when Akiyama pinned Honda with the Exploder Suplex (14:08).
7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino (c) defeated Yuki Ueno, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Endo pinned MAO with the Shooting Star Press (24:41).

Today Tetsuya Endo was fighting for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles, for DAMNATION and most importantly of all for the pride of Shiroishi City! The match came down to him and MAO fighting on the top turnbuckles. MAO tried to set up the Avalanche Michinoku Driver II. Endo instead hit the Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds for a nearfall. Endo then did the Shooting Star Press for the three count. The tourist ambassador for Shiroishi wins in his hometown!

While Endo bragged about “banishing” The 37KAMIINA from Shiroishi, Eruption entered the ring led by Saki Akai. She challenged DAMNATION for the 6-Man Tag Titles to determine which unit is the best. Endo would accept on the condition that Eruption can never step foot in Shiroishi again if they lose. Yuji Hino was confused to see a woman challenge him but Endo liked the challenge and accepted it. Hisaya Imabayashi decided the title match will take place at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”!

The pairing of Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda was a mini Happy Motels reunion. Honda worked over Makoto Oishi with a Cobra Twist. Takeshita then caused great damage to Oishi after he threw him away from a Tornado DDT attempt. Oishi was in bad shape from that point onwards and remained lying on the apron after he tagged out to Jun Akiyama. Honda missed the Gongitsune and hit Takeshita by accident. Akiyama then cleaned things up and pinned Hona with the Exploder. Oishi seemed to have an injured back coming out of the match and had to leave ringside on a stretcher.

Akito & Kazuki Hirata entered their match wearing their own Danshoku Dieno wrestling costumes. They later ditched the costumes and danced wearing Hirata GO! glasses. That lowered their guard for Dieno & Yuki Iino to make their comeback and win.

3b. Rematch: HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Antonio Honda defeated Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi when Honda pinned Hiroshi with the Diving Fist Drop (5:52).
4. ALL OUT FINAL FIGHT: Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Katsumata pinned Akito with the ¡Hasta la vista! (28:52).

Today was the final day of ALL OUT, the unit that has been around in DDT for four years. All of its members have taken different directions for their careers and agreed the time has come for most of them to go their separate ways. Just as the unit name suggests, ALL OUT gave it their all and kept burning until the end. That was shown in the main event when the four full time members faced off in a tag match lasting half an hour. Before the match began everyone was treated to video messages from the international members of ALL OUT. Diego, Space Monkey and Royce Chambers all sent their thanks to the group for taking care of them when they were in Japan.

The match itself went full force. Yuki Iino put Konosuke Takeshita through a table with the Spear. Takeshita fired back with the Last Ride for a nearfall but his attempt at bringing back the Fable was blocked with a mid-air Spear. Shunma Katsumata and Akito then went on a sprint until all four wrestlers got into Elbow Strike exchanges. Iino got Takeshita out of the ring while Katsumata peppered Akito with Super Kicks. Katsumata then wrapped the ALL OUT flag around his waist and did the Stuka Splash for a nearfall. For the ending, Katsumata yelled out Diego’s name and did Diego’s finisher the VHS onto the flag. He then pinned Akito with the ¡Hasta la vista! to win.

Takeshita got on the mic after the match. He said ALL OUT began with just him and Akito, then Diego joined. It wasn’t a unit put together to make friends but for each member to improve each other. The proof today is in how strong Katsumata & Iino have become. Takeshita admitted he was against Katsumata joining the group because he wasn’t very good at the time but now he is like a different person! Takeshita was also the person who told Iino to start using the Haka Elbow so he has to take the responsibility for that one. Akito repeated that he and Takeshita pushed each other upwards. He hopes Katsumata & Iino will go crazy in more ways from now on so they can all say this break up was not a mistake. Iino talked about being in ALL OUT ever since his debut. He has been part of the unit for pretty much his entire career so he has nothing but gratitude towards the other members. He thanked them for keeping ALL OUT alive for him when he was sidelined with a back injury. Katsumata said similar for the times he was out of action with his orbital bone injuries. ALL OUT has ended but their goals will be the same. Katsumata wants all four of them to make a new history and he won’t lose to any of them from now on either!

The planned 3 Way Tag Match was changed into a special 6-Man Tag Team match by Hisaya Imabayashi. According to the GM, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao strongly requested the match to be turned into a Smile Squash Vs Happy Motels double reunion. It all turned out to be a ruse when Endo & Takao attacked everyone including the referee, causing the match to end in a No Contest. HARASHIMA demanded the original 3 Way Tag Match take place instead but that also got thrown out when Daisuke Kiso got knocked down again, this time by Antonio Honda & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi when their team fell apart. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano tended to Honda while Hiroshi sided with Endo & Takao in an alliance he named YOGANATION. An impromptu 6-Man Tag then happened but Endo & Takao turned on Hiroshi. They left him for dead with a Double Super Kick and Honda did the Diving Fist Drop on Hiroshi for the three count.

Takeshita & Akito were able to get a win earlier in the show. Their last trios match with Katsumata was a victory against wrestlers they have associations with: Takeshita with Yuki Ueno, Katsumata with Chris Brookes and Akito with Shota. The match had no tags needed to keep things fast and frantic. Brookes was dispatched with a Super Kick/Zahi combo, Takeshita countered Ueno’s WR into the Surprise Rose and Akito made Shota submit to the Goliath Birdeater.

Iino opened the show with another chance to try and beat the unbeatable Yuji Hino. He showed no intimidation towards his rival, performing the Haka on the ramp when Hino walked out for his entrance. Iino put too much focus into using the Spear. When he hit it, Hino kicked out. Then by that point Hino had the move scouted and used Short Range Lariats to stop further attempts of the move. Iino was down and defeated when Hino hit a Diving Body Press.

5. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Keigo Nakamura defeated Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Hideki Okatani when HARASHIMA pinned Okatani with the Somato (11:19).
6. Customer Lottery 6-Man Tag Match That Looks Like A Beer Garden Specialty: Chris Brookes, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Tetsuya Endo, Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno when Yoshimura pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (18:38).

The lottery draw for the main event pitted friends against each other and had enemies teaming together. Nautilus found themselves on opposite sides but agreed that they would do their best when it was time for them to fight. Tetsuya Endo surprised Konosuke Takeshita and everyone else by coming out wearing his old Happy Motels gear! He was on his best behavior and shook everyone’s hands to prove it. But in the end it was all a big ruse. He Headbutted Takeshita then gave Yuki Ueno the Testuya In The Sky. Endo took off his Happy Motels clothes to show he was wearing his regular gear underneath then walked out on the match. Chris Brookes, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazusada Higuchi took advantage of the situation to win the match. Ueno still had some fight left in him but Yoshimura put him away with the Power Bomb. Afterwards Yoshimura tried to cool things down and thanked Ueno for wrestling him after a long time. He hopes next year everyone will actually be able to drink beer at the Beer Garden shows. But first he will beat Takeshita at the King Of DDT tournament!

Jun Akiyama got to wrestle with HARASHIMA for the first time ever. Hideki Okatani is making progress hitting the Northern Lights Suplex on a consistant basis but he can’t say the same when he attempts the Double Arm Suplex. HARASHIMA countered that and pinned him with the Somato. Keigo Nakamura refused to shake hands with Akiyama after the match. Makoto Oishi had to apologize to Akiyama for the rookie’s rudeness.

Antonio Honda was too lovesick to wrestle in the Rock And Roll 4 Way Death Match. A.YAZAWA took his place. It was already announced yesterday that “brother” KAZUKI was substituting for the recently banished Kazuki Hirata. Everyone had to dance whenever rock music played. Shunma Katsumata complained because it was not the kind of death match he was expecting. The music player broke halfway through the match which meant any genre of music would be randomly chosen from now on. “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” by NωA played so Katsumata and KAZUKI sang karaoke for it. YAZAWA and Saki Akai did the same when “Otoko To Onna No Love Game” played. A song used for drinking games then came on causing all four to get drunk. KAZUKI was about to beat YAZAWA when “TOKYO GO!” of all things played. KAZUKI couldn’t resist and danced until YAZAWA pinned him with an Upright Kick.

After the match YAZAWA told KAZUKI he knows he is really Kazuki Hirata in disguise. He could tell from the way he danced. KAZUKI tried to deny it but eventually admitted it to no reaction. He admitted it again so the crowd would react this time. He can’t leave the country because of the Coronavirus so he bought a bandana and made hair extensions out of vinyl tape to create this disguise. “brother” KAZUKI will be retired today and he will go back to normal.

Akito warned DAMNATION that Danshoku Dieno was feeling frustrated today. The Coronavirus prevents him from running through the crowd kissing fans during his entrance so it left him with pent up energy. Soma Takao in particular was told to beware of him. Dieno immediately entered the ring from another part of the room so he could get his hands on Takao. He later went for the Lip Lock but got Akito by mistake instead. Mad Paulie then gave Dieno the Lip Lock. He stretched out his tights wanting to give Dieno the Danshoku Driver but Takao instead rolled Dieno over in a School Boy for the three count.

The Crocodile Triple Hell Death Match involves a toy crocodile with button teeth that you push. If the toy bites you then you have to drink a cup of tequila. The other participants get to drink beer. Every round lasted 30 seconds as an excuse to play the game and drink more alcohol. Daisuke Sasaki, Yukio Sakaguchi and Yuki Iino all got drunk then got Yukinori Matsui to play so he could get drunk too. Iino stripped down to his underwear. Sasaki and Sakaguchi used scissors to cut the strings off his underwear and pulled them off so he was completely naked (except for his wrestling shoes). Iino used the crocodile toy to cover his shame as the match got called off.

Yukio Naya is getting criticism for not being dominant like a man with his size snd power should be. Mizuki Watase took the wind out of his sails by countering the Choke Slam into a Hurricanrana to steal the win from him.

The annual summer clash between the DDT and Tokyo Joshi Pro authority figures was as desperate looking as always. Hisaya Imabayashi told everyone to look out for his new Rainmaker Backfist move. However, Tetsuya Koda said he is sick of this feud being used as a joke for the wrestlers to laugh at backstage. He would instead lay down for Imabayashi and let him pin him. It was a trap and Koda caught him in a deadly Sleeper Hold. Imabayashi reached the rope but Koda would attack him with foreign objects and put him in another Sleeper Hold. Imabayashi was about to lose consciousness when voices of his children spoke to him. They told him they’ve been studying at home because they can’t go to school. They are also upset they can’t go to the shows this year but they still want their daddy to do his best! Suddenly Imabayashi woke up and fought back. He hit Koda with the Backfist and then the Kamigoye! Koda kicked out and put Imabayashi in one more Sleeper Hold. Imabayashi tried to fight it but could no longer go on. He shouted out the names of his kids and said he loved them before going out cold.

7. You And Me Yellow Cherries Next Door! Yamagata Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Naomi Yoshimura & Makoto Oishi when Sasaki submitted Oishi with the Cross Facelock (17:22).

Daisuke Sasaki told the audience that he hasn’t gone out of the house much during Golden Week this year so he’s had plenty of spare time on his hands. Tetsuya Endo said there are two kinds of people in the world, a superstar from Shiroishi like himself and other countrymen.

Konosuke Takeshita used the Gongitsune eye pokes from the ring apron to blind Yuki Ueno and put him in position for the Fable. Antonio Honda followed up with the Diving Fist Drop to win the match for the reunited Happy Motels duo. Five years have passed since that day the unit was formed. Honda thanked everyone for seeing him and Takeshita together again today.

Liberties were taken to turn the ring from a squared circle to a hexagon for the T2P tribute match. Tiger ropes were applied in two opposite corners of the ring to cut off the turnbuckles and vaguely create the two extra sides needed to make a hexagon ring. As part of the match rules, Masahiro Takanashi and Kazuki Hirata were penalised points for every rope break they made. Takanashi won when he set Hirata up for the Takatonic but instead turned it into the Palo Special for the submission. Takanashi left the match wondering why Sanshiro Takagi wasn’t present in the ring when it was supposed to be his Marunage match.

Konosuke Takeshita described his wrestling family. Yasu Urano was his dad, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was his older brother and Antonio Honda was both his strange grandfather and respected uncle. Honda admits that his life changed after he and Takeshita wrestled together as part of the Happy Motels unit. He thinks Takeshita is so overflowing with positivity that it encouraged his own impulses to embrace everything. A pro wrestler can be both an athlete and a poet. Honda believes Takeshita has both of those qualities. Honda has always been there for Takeshita whether it was to give him advice about wrestling or just to lend him a CD or DVD. It was this relationship that made Takeshita understand the importance of having a “wrestling family”.

April 1, 2017

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 19”, 01/04/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
350 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Ishii pinned Hirata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (8:04).
2. KUDO Vs Mad Paulie ended in a Double Countout (6:03).
3. Toru Owashi & Shigehiro Irie defeated Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata when Irie pinned Oishi with the Beast Bomber (10:29).
4. Unit Opposition 3 Way Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Soma Takao defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi and Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino when HARASHIMA pinned Takanashi with the Somato (11:27).
5. Akito defeated Yasu Urano with the Hanamasa (11:21).
6. Happy Motels Final Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Antonio Honda & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo when Honda submitted Sasaki with the Manjigatame (20:43).

It is all over for Happy Motels. With Konosuke Takeshita taking the throne as the top man in DDT, Antonio Honda felt it was time for everyone to move on. Their final match together with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi included saw them victorious over DAMNATION. As an added treat it was Honda who scored the winning submission. He blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s Hurricanrana and countered it into a Dragon Suplex. When Sasaki kicked out Honda put him in the Manjigatame to make Sasaki tap. Honda said they would build a sexy statue of Hiroshi to celebrate the victory. He then said “April Fool’s!” Honda revealed that he came up with the idea of forming Happy Motel back when he saw Takeshita and Hiroshi wrestle each other. Hiroshi said he now feels lonely without Happy Motels but Honda reminded him that he is a pillar for BASARA and BASARA will always need him. Honda finished by saying even if they weren’t really a motel, they were still able to be happy and make others feel happy. They finished with a group pose and with that, Happy Motels have disbanded.

Something is going on with Akito, there is more to him leaving Smile Squash than just wanting a change in scenery. His match with Yasu Urano featured interference from Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. Sasaki gave Urano a Low Blow while Endo distracted the referee. Akito did not see it happen but still took advantage and pinned Urano with the Hanamasa. Urano offered a handshake after the match but Akito rejected him and stormed out of the ring. When Akito found out about DAMNATION’s interference he thought it was just an April Fool’s joke being played on him.

Yukio Sakaguchi and Yoshihiro Takayama continued fighting each other after the 3 Way Tag Match ended. Meanwhile Smile Squash are still adjusting to life without Akito. Soma Takao suggested that he and HARASHIMA go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles.

Royce Isaacs introduced himself to the audience at the start of the show. He wrestled in last year’s DNA Grand Prix and is happy for the chance to wrestle in DDT. He told the audience he will have exciting matches and they will not forget his name.

There is a change in plans for this year’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere challenge. Instead of a Battle Royal Ladder Match there will instead be five singles matches to determine who wins a contract. The matches are Akito Vs Kouki Iwasaki, Antonio Honda Vs Royce Isaacs, KUDO Vs Shigehiro Irie, Yoshihiro Takayama Vs Kazusada Higuchi and Keisuke Ishii Vs Yoshihiko. Each match will have a five minute time limit and if the time runs out the winner will be chosen by an audience vote.

Royce Isaacs will be making his DDT debut on this show. Isaacs participated in the DNA Grand Prix last year and was impressive enough to be brought in for a main tour in DDT.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Dick Togo

The postcard plan Daisuke Sasaki put in place to find a challenger probably worked too well. Dick Togo is stepping up to the plate! Sasaki and his mentor still have bad blood brewing between them over the last year.

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The Union MAX Title now belongs to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and his first defence takes place in Korakuen Hall. It is Ryota Nakatsu’s desire to win the title because he wrestled in Union Pro for the last year of the brand’s existence but never had the chance to chase after that championship.

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) Vs Atsushi Maruyama

Earlier this month Ken Ohka won the World Jr. Heavyweight Title over in K-DOJO. The title lineage can be traced all the way back to FMW. Ohka wants Atsushi Maruyama to be his first challenger because he has been an inspiration to Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Also if Ohka wants to be a strong champion he needs to defend the belt against strong challengers so he’s giving Maruyama the home field advantage by holding the title match in Osaka!
