*V7 for Daisuke Sasaki.
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) defeated Danshoku Dino (#1) with the Cross-Arm German Suplex (22:30).
*V9 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Another broken heart for Danshoku Dino. His efforts to show Konosuke Takeshita the true spirit of DDT did not win him the KO-D Openweight Championship. Part of the reason Takeshita won today was because he adapted to Dino’s gameplan when he needed to. At first he was on track to winning with his usual style, dumping Dino on his head with a German Suplex and smashing him with Lariats and Knee Strikes. But Dino got desparate and grabbed the ropes during the Gaydo Clutch for leverage. Yukinori Matsui saw Dino cheat and stopped the count. From there Takeshita switched gameplans and started using Dino’s moves against him, first with the Gaydo Clutch. Dino cut him off with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. He hit the Homo Ye then applied his new Strangle Hold P submission. Takeshita found an unlikely way to fight out of the move and it was to bite Dino’s crotch! The champion continued using the Danshoku style by Hump Thrusting him into the corner. Dino countered a German Suplex into another Gaydo Clutch but Takeshita kicked out of it. Dino hit a Moonsault but another kickout happened. Dino climbed up again for another Moonsault but Takeshita kicked him in the backside and Power Bombed him to the canvas. From there the two traded Lip Locks instead of Elbow Smashes. Dino kicked out of a Lariat at one and in a trance took every Elbow Smash Takeshita threw at him. Takeshita whiffed a Pump Kick but it was clear Dino was out on his feet. However he still kicked out of a German Suplex. Takeshita pulled down his own shorts and hit the Cross-Arm German Suplex to finally put an end to Dino’s challenge.

Takeshita told Dino after the match that today was the most colorful wall he ever had to climb over. He can now with confidence thank Dino for giving him his first kiss 10 years ago at a DDT show where he was just a fan Dino found in the audience during his entrance. He called Dino a DDT icon. Dino left the ring crestfallen but stopped when he heard the fans chant his name. Dino pounded his chest, gave everyone the middle finger, pounded his chest again and left. With this being his ninth successful defence, Takeshita now has the KO-D Title record for the most defences in a single reign. Hisaya Imabayashi entered the ring to reveal the next challenger who will come to Korakuen Hall on 24th December. It’s Colt Cabana! A pre-recorded video played of Cabana challenging the winner of the main event. Cabana’s a comedy wrestler but he is also a two time NWA Heavyweight Champion so he warns the KO-D Champion to take him seriously when they face off. When the video ended Takeshita said he already beat Mike Bailey to keep the belt and he’s the strongest foreigner he knows so he won’t lose to Colt Cabana. Also Cabana doesn’t scare him like Dino did. Takeshita told everyone that even though he does his best for DDT he is filled with regrets. He regrets finishing in 7th for the Dramatic General Election. He also regrets finishing 12th in the Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships which he thinks is a terrible and disappointing result. From now on he will put his best foot forward and he hopes the crowd will support him when he gives them exciting title defences.

Daisuke Sasaki is close to breaking the DDT Extreme Title record for most title defences. He beat HARASHIMA in a TLC Match for his 7th straight defence. Sasaki tried to attack HARASHIMA with chair and ladders but most of the time HARASHIMA kicked them away. Sasaki needed Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie to help him with interference. Soma Takao tried to stop them but was outnumbered and thrown out of the ring. HARASHIMA fought back, putting Sasaki through a table at ringside with a Diving Body Press. A Reverse Hurricanrana positioned Sasaki in front of a table leaning against the turnbuckles. HARASHIMA went for the Somato but Sasaki dodged it and HARASHIMA crashed into the table. Sasaki placed the table flat on the mat and gave HARASHIMA an Avalanche Pedigree onto it. HARASHIMA kicked out of the pin but was helpless when Sasaki stood the table up and lifted him onto it. Sasaki climbed the tallest ladder of the bunch and hit the Diving Elbow on HARASHIMA. The table didn’t break and every non-Japanese person watching imagined evil laughter in their head as Sasaki got the three count. After the match Sasaki said he didn’t get as many election votes as HARASHIMA but he doesn’t want to be like HARASHIMA anyway. He mocked HARASHIMA because he now has to say “I’m sorry I lost” to everyone who voted for him. Sasaki ordered Endo & Paulie to attack HARASHIMA but Soma came to the rescue with a chair and fought with DAMNATION until other wrestlers pulled them apart.

In a surprising upset, Masahiro Takanashi caught Tetusya Endo off guard with a flash pin out of nowhere. Endo though he had Takanashi down and out when he gave him the Tetsuya In The Sky. However, Takanashi shook off the pain and trapped Endo in a side rolling cradle for the shock three count. Takanashi called the move the “Hangover!!” which is what Endo must be feeling after losing the match that way. Takanashi said DAMNATION made a big mistake if they thought they got rid of Shuten-dōji that easily.

Well so much for that special non-title match Keisuke Ishii was going to get against the Triple Crown Champion. Less than 24 hours earlier Suwama lost the Triple Crown to Joe Doering in All Japan. Now Ishii was wrestling a disgruntled former champion. Suwama beat him in eight minutes flat. Still, he remembers Ishii from the All Japan dojo and would like to see how he will grow to the point where he might come back to AJPW. Ishii describes the result as a perfect defeat. Even though he lost it felt amazing to him. Tomorrow he will begin to grow stronger and stronger.

The pairing of Akito & Hideki Suzuki worked out well for the two. They beat Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi when Akito countered Higuchi’s Doctor Bomb into a European Clutch. Akito was happy with the result and brought up that he and Suzuki share the same birthday (28th February). Both would like to team with each other again. Suzuki told Akito he would ask Sanshiro Takagi to put plans together the next time they meet for a dinner.

Ultimo Dragon made a fool of himself by being the only one to fall for the classic Group Hop spot during Match #2. Kazuki Hirata even knocked him out with a Karate Chop. When Hirata began his dance he shouted “The Hira-timo Dragon Gym is now open!” Despite those moments, Dragon felt like he fit into the DDT world smoothly.

Abdullah Kobayashi transformed into Stan Kobayashi during the opener. He cost the match for his team when a Western Lariat hit Antonio Honda by mistake. Honda also tried to tell a Halloween story called Sadako Vs Kayako Vs Gon, The Little Fox.

In the dark match, Super Sasadango Machine took some gambles. The first one didn’t pay off when he missed a Diving Double Knee Drop aimed for Kouki Iwasaki. But he used his wits when he saw Yuni climb the second rope to do a Moonsault. Sasadango grabbed Iwasaki and pulled him down on top of him to take the brunt of Yuni’s Moonsault. Yuki Ueno helped out by giving Iwasaki a Missile Dropkick then Sasadango ended the match with the Lehmann Shock. After the match Ueno said he was excited to find out about his inclusion in the upcoming Differ Cup tournament. He said he and Takeshita will win it for DDT.

More DDT wrestlers will be added to the Ring Dream online browser game next month. Cherry is now in the game along with gender swapped versions of Sasaki and Endo. Sasaki requested for his character to have blonde hair and a bigger chest so that will also be included as an alternate design. Endo’s character includes a cameo of Mad Paulie as a stuffed toy.

Producer Dino has abolished the annual Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament to determine the KO-D Title No. 1 Contender because Cabana is getting the next shot on Christmas Eve. The 23rd November Korakuen show will instead feature the first defence of the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles.

Ishii is producing a DDT show on 11th November in Tokorozawa. Sasaki will defend his Independent World Jr. Title against an opponent to be announced. KUDO will also have his first match back after recovering from his concussion. The main event is Ishii and the returning Shigehiro Irie versus Takeshita and Yasu Urano.

The DAMNATION team competing for the vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles on 2nd November will be Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie.

7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (16:14).
*DAMNATION acquires all of Ken Ohka’s money (690,619 Yen).

Once again Daisuke Sasaki has beaten Ken Ohka and taken all of his money. A grand total of 690,619 yen was on the line for the main event tag match. Even though Ohka had HARASHIMA on his side, Sasaki had Tetsuya Endo ready to keep him busy. Ohka’s chance to hit the Fire Spear was countered into the Cross Facelock and there was no escape for him. Sasaki took the envelope full of cash after the match. He now had so much money he felt like it could drive him crazy. He loves this feeling so much that he won’t quit wrestling after all. He wants to win more gold and money so he can get an even bigger buzz. He gave Mad Paulie 10,000 yen and Endo 30,000 yen to go spend at a love bar. Sasaki then asked Ohka how old his newborn kid is. Ohka said 9 months old. Sasaki gave Ohka 1,000 yen so he can go get the kid some milk. When DAMNATION left the ring Sasaki also handed Nobuhiro Shimatani 10,000 yen while he was carrying their stuff out of the room. Ohka swore revenge and said this isn’t the end. He is now a father with a young family. Ohka will show Sasaki eventually how strong he is because of his fatherhood.

Danshoku Dino developed a new submission move called the Strangle Hold P. Those who know about the different Strangle Hold submissions Kensuke Sasaki used to do will have an idea what it looks like. But since this is Dino doing the move it also involved the victim, Yuki Ueno in this instance, getting Dino’s crotch pressed against his face in the process. After the match Dino told Ueno he had to give him his pants for losing the match. Ueno refused and he told Dino how much he hated being put in that move. Dino decided not to take his pants because Ueno was honest with his feelings in the ring. It turns out that was the lesson Dino wanted to teach him today and his plan worked. Dino then noticed Konosuke Takeshita was watching him from a distance. Dino told him this is his way of life. DDT is his way of life. Takeshita will have to show him his way of life soon when they clash for the KO-D Openweight Title.

Takeshita countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstacy into a Hurricanrana for the win. Akito wanted to know why was the vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles not put up for grabs today? ALL OUT just beat NωA and they were the previous champions before Shuten-dōji. Why does ALL OUT have to fight DAMNATION for the belts? Takeshita told Akito not to worry. He will be in perfect condition for the vacant title match on 2nd November. But first, he has to compete in the Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships taking place tomorrow.

Both KUDO and Kota Umeda were at ringside to support the rest of Shuten-dōji in their match. Masahiro Takanashi wanted to hold a toast to celebrate Shuten-dōji’s full reunion for the first time in ages but KUDO isn’t allowed to drink alcohol while he is recovering, Yukio Sakaguchi is driving later and Umeda will not drink until after his return match. Takanashi told the fans he will be drinking alone tonight.

7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo Vs HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka

The conflict over Ken Ohka’s money continues. Daisuke Sasaki tried to withdraw all of Ohka’s money from the bank this week but discovered his account was empty. When Sasaki crashed a Ganbare☆Wrestling show to get an explanation both he and Ohka found out that Yumehito Imanari took out the money to both protect and invest in it. Sasaki and Ohka agreed to a tag match on this show where the winner takes it all. Ohka got his money back and brought it to DDT HQ to count all of it. Hisaya Imabayashi confirmed that 691,619 yen is the full amount being put on the line. Sasaki chose Tetsuya Endo to be his partner while HARASHIMA offered to help out Ohka, both because he is a friend and also so he can fight Sasaki before their DDT Extreme Title match.

6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) Vs HARASHIMA (#2)
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

Sasaki has decided his match with HARASHIMA will now be a TLC Match! He says in pro wrestling you have to fight using your own physical body. Sasaki admits that HARASHIMA’s body is better than his own so that’s why he’s bringing in tables, ladders and chairs to swing the odds in his favour. That’s not to say HARASHIMA is new to the stipulation. He won the KO-D Tag Team Titles with KUDO in a TLC Match way back in 2003.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The circumstances surrounding the next KO-D Tag Titles defence are not good but Shuten-dōji still wanted another shot. The previous match prematurely ended when KUDO suffered a concussion from a fluke collision with Naomichi Marufuji’s knee. Masahiro Takanashi misses KUDO but he decided that letting other teams challenge for the titles will eventually lose him the opportunity to win the belts from HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji. So he and Yukio Sakaguchi are getting their shot next. Takanashi said they are not motivated by getting revenge for what happened to KUDO. They are treating this match as a continuation of the previous match. HARASHIMA hopes that when KUDO returns they can still do a proper rematch for the titles.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi by TKO when Marufuji knocked out KUDO (14:17).
*V2 for HarashiMarufuji.

The main event was stopped after a freak accident when Naomichi Marufuji did a cartwheel past KUDO to counter an Irish Whip and he accidentally clipped him in the head with his knee, knocking KUDO out cold. KUDO was taken to the nearby hospital and was diagnosed with a concussion. Marufuji apologised to everyone for the accident and takes the blame for what happened. HARASHIMA tried to cheer up Marufuji and told everyone that as much as they prepare for their matches, what happens in the ring can get beyond their control. Marufuji promised to continue defending the KO-D Tag Team Titles until KUDO can challenge them again so they can finish their match.

Danshoku Dino’s latest round of mind games against Konosuke Takeshita didn’t work today. He told everyone that one way to damage the heart of the champion is to make him lose to a wrestler with a shallow career, so Dino’s plan was to make Kouki Iwasaki beat Takeshita. Producer Dino motivated Iwasaki by giving him a grand entrance with the fans showing their support. Dino then told everyone about Iwasaki’s experience playing football, the best fighting sport. Iwasaki’s kicks were developed from his football skills. Dino told Iwasaki that he can double the power of his Penalty Kick by running the ropes twice. According to Dino it is powerful enough to pin wrestlers for four seconds. Iwasaki did the Penalty Kick to Takeshita during the match but Takeshita kicked out at two. He then hit back with a Big Boot and got the win over Iwasaki’s team with the Surprise Rose. It’s back to the drawing board for Dino.

Daisuke Sasaki claimed that today would be his final match before he emptied Ken Ohka’s bank account and become the Million Dollar Man. He gave an emotional speech thanking the rest of DAMNATION for their time together. Tetsuya Endo wiped tears from his eyes, hugged Sasaki and urged Mad Paulie to do the same. Sasaki said now he is leaving wrestling Endo will have to move back into his parent’s house and Paulie will have to go back to his home too. He also asked the fans to continue cheering Shuji Ishikawa even though he isn’t here today because he works so hard in his matches. Sasaki gathered the present DAMNATION wrestlers together to say their catchphrase, apparently for the last time.

Tomoya and Kazuki Hirata had a musical duel singing both of their entrance songs a cappella. Hirata chopped Tomoya during his song then Tomoya and the rest of his team Super Kicked Hirata when he performed leading to the finish.

Antonio Honda did not want to fight Saki Akai during the 3 Way Match. He held back from hitting her whenever he had the opportunity to. He even tried to take Akai’s place whenever Makoto Oishi attacked her. Honda confessed his admiration for Akai but she turned him down. That’s when Honda turned sides and now had no problem wrestling her. Oishi joined in and held Akai down so Honda could hit the Diving Fist Drop. However Oishi raised Akai’s foot to block Honda and Oishi then gave him the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to steal the pin.

Sapporo Susukino Mars Gym

1. Akito, Diego & Saki Akai defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Akito pinned Hirata with the Hanamasa (8:45).
2. Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Tomoya & Antonio Honda when Takanashi pinned Honda with the Takatonic (12:25).
3. Keisuke Ishii & Koji Yoshida defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshida pinned Shimatani with the Emerald Flowsion (10:14).
4. DAMNATION Vs NωA!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Sasaki submitted Oishi with the Cross Facelock (11:55).
5. Fierce Fight! Dong Bang Battle!: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Goten (13:50).
6. Sapporo Specialty! Sea Urchin, Scallop, Cuttlefish, Crab Bowl Special 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Danshoku Dino, HARASHIMA and KUDO when Takeshita pinned Dino with a Gaydo Clutch (15:10).

The 4 Way Main event split off into two stories, Konosuke Takeshita Vs Danshoku Dino and HARASHIMA Vs KUDO. While all four fought each other throughout the match, those two pairings got the most focus. KUDO gave Dino a Buzzsaw Kick and had HARASHIMA pinned with the Diving Double Knee Stop. But Takeshita stopped the count by lifting KUDO up with a German Suplex. With KUDO and HARASHIMA both out of the ring, Dino ducked under Takeshita’s Lariat and he trapped him in the Lip Lock. Dino went for the Gaydo Clutch but Takeshita reversed it with a Gaydo Clutch of his own to get the three count. HARASHIMA and KUDO had a staredown before they both left the ring. Takeshita told Dino after the match that he figured out his weakness. What works best against Dino is an eye for and eye, a tooth for a tooth and fighting fire with fire. Dino is weak against his own Danshoku style! Dino said it is no good that a straight wrestler pretends to be gay to beat him. Takeshita pointed out that it worked for him today. Dino called it a fluke. He said Takeshita is afraid of the Danshoku style and creating his own to combat it will not work in the end. He will eventually learn how much depth there is to the style and it isn’t something Dino does for his own self-interests.

Both Kazusada Higuchi and Kouki Iwasaki were motivated to be at their best today because the show was in their home prefecture of Hokkaido. Higuchi won the match and described it as an emotional event. He hopes to continue working hard for DDT and see DNA do the same.

Daisuke Sasaki announced he will be cashing out of Ken Ohka’s bank account on 10th October when he returns to Tokyo. He believes the money will make him the Million Dollar Man and he’ll be so rich he will never have to wrestle again. He claims tomorrow’s match will be his last.

6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Iwasaki with a Lariat (17:12).

Each NωA member had a different motivation for their match today. Shunma Katsumata wanted to beat Daiki Shimomura one on one to prepare for their upcoming tag team match in DNA later this week. Katsumata won with a Thrust Kick, Buzzsaw Kick and the Swan Dive X Factor. Next, Makoto Oishi had never lost to Masahiro Takanashi in a singles match. He also prepared a secret weapon ready, the Headlock! Unfortunately, Takanashi had a secret weapon of his own and it was the Hammerlock. After a back and forth battle between the two moves, Takanashi countered a Headlock into a Cradle to get the three count. Lastly, MAO was sacrificing himself so he could turn Oyama back to normal after Danshoku Dino turned it into a Gay Town the last time he was here. In return, Dino demanded that if he won the match he would get MAO’s underwear. MAO would have won when he hit the Screw Kick but Daisuke Kiso was already knocked down by an accidental Lip Lock. When MAO revived him, Dino gave MAO the Lip Lock and Danshoku Driver to win. Both Oishi and Katsumata offered to give their underwear to Dino instead. Dino was touched by their passion to protect MAO and he revealed that today’s series of matches were meant to test NωA’s loyalty to each other. Their underwear would be saved.

The ALL OUT and Shuten-dōji wrestlers got into a fight after the main event. When they were pulled apart, Konosuke Takeshita reminded Shuten-dōji that they have a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence against them in Yokohama next week. So enjoy your drinks now because they won’t have a chance to have any toasts in Yokohama! Diego called himself a Chilean who wants their belts. Akito said he wants to win the titles for Diego so he can become a champion.

Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at Antonio Honda to break up his Octopus Hold on Mad Paulie. Then during the brawl Paulie pinned Honda with the Paulie Buster. Sasaki tried to attack HARASHIMA with the chair after the match but HARASHIMA stopped him with a High Kick. When asked if he had gone to the bank today to take out all of Ken Ohka’s money, Sasaki admitted he overslept, woke up at 5pm and had no time to go there.

Neither Kazuki Hirata or Kazusada Higuchi made their expected entrances for Match #2. When Hirata’s music played, Higuchi walked out carrying an unconscious Hirata! Higuchi told everyone he got so sick of hearing Hirata’s dance practice before the show that he did something to stop it. Toru Owashi was angry at what Higuchi did, not just because Hirata is his friend but also because he now had to fight a Handicap Match againsy Higuchi & Keisuke Ishii. Luckily, Owashi accidentally struck Hirata during the fight and it woke him up so the tag match went ahead as planned.

6. Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Dino pinned Takeshita with the Gaydo Clutch (12:40).

Danshoku Dino grabbed on to the referee to block Konosuke Takeshita from doing the German Suplex. With the ref pulled aside, Dino gave Takeshita a Low Blow then put him in the Gaydo Clutch for the three count. Dino grabbed the ropes during the clutch to get extra leverage on the pin and wasn’t caught. Dino warned Takeshita that he is stronger than Takeshita thinks. Takeshita is younger but Dino has more confidence. Dino’s greatest strength is he always believes in himself. No matter what people tell him, they can never shake his core. As the producer, Dino’s goal is to make anything happen in DDT and one example is a chubby 40 year old like himself beating the young and strong KO-D Openweight Champion at Korakuen Hall on 22nd October. Dino has the seven coloured Gaydo Clutch in his arsenal, one for each colour of the rainbow. Takeshita learned one of the colours today, Dino looks forward to showing him the other six later this month.

Poor Daisuke Kiso took a few lumps in the Independent World Jr. Title match and he was just the referee! He took a kick from Shuichiro Katsumura by mistake then while he was down Daisuke Sasaki picked him up and dropped him with a Michinoku Driver for no reason. Sasaki hit Katsumura with a Spear and went for the pin but there was no count until Yukinori Matsui ran into the ring. Katsumura kicked out and put Sasaki into a Cross Armbreaker but Sasaki eventually countered it into the Crossover Facelock to make him submit. Sasaki told Katsumura afterwards that this is pro wresting. It has nothing to do with amateurs so he should study the sport more before he ever challenges him again. Sasaki demanded Ken Ohka to hand over his bank seal. Both Yumehito Imanari and Shinichiro Tominaga tried to attack Sasaki but he easily knocked both of them out. Ohka cried when he handed over his bank seal. Sasaki now has full control over all of Ohka’s savings and bank accounts! When Tominaga recovered he challenged Sasaki to a title match but that decision will not be made until after Sasaki’s next defence in K-DOJO on 15th October. Sasaki said if he loses the title there then Tominaga will still have to fight him. According to Sasaki, fighting him is more important than the championship. But even then it might not happen. Sasaki is so satisfied with the money and accomplishments he recently “earned” that he may retire from wrestling altogether. All he has to do is go to the bank tomorrow and cash out. He lost interest in that idea when he learned the bank doesn’t open until 3pm.

At the start of the show, Producer Dino was asked about who he picked to be the NωA’s ringside assistant for their match against T2Hide. He kept it a secret, only sharing that it involved Sanshiro Takagi lives near Seijo and this person was chosen to solve some family problems. When the match took place Makoto Oishi introduced the mystery person. It was Kayako Takagi, Sanshiro’s wife! Toru Owashi tried to calm the situation down by encouraging Kazuki Hirata to do his entrance but the match began. Hirata convinced Sanshiro to wear the HIRATA GO! glasses with him but Kayako wore a pair of her own to turn the duel into a stalemate. Shunma Katsumata & MAO got in the ring and knocked down T2Hide with Dropkicks. They placed Sanshiro on top of Hirata and Kayako Moonsaulted onto both of them. Everyone else then piled up on top of them to pin Hirata. Sanshiro tried to reconcile with Kayako after the match but she slapped him and left. Sanshiro told everyone in the audience he has a scary wife and he promises to make it up to her tomorrow.

Masahiro Takanashi used HARASHIMA’s own weapon against him. He goaded HARASHIMA into throwing a High Kick but ducked, leading HARASHIMA to kick his partner Kouki Iwasaki in the head by mistake. Takanashi then rolled Iwasaki into a pin with the Bacchus. HARASHIMA complimented Takanashi in an interview backstage. HARASHIMA said that although he himself was in an unfamiliar tag team with Iwasaki today, it was Takanashi’s skills and bond with KUDO that won the match for Shuten-dōji. Both KUDO & Takanashi commented that they want to see Naomichi Marufuji get kicked in the head in their KO-D Tag Team Title Match. KUDO wants to kick Marufuji while Takanashi wants to pull off the same trick he did with HARASHIMA today.
