DDT “KOI NI KOI KOGARE KOI NI NAKU! 2018”, 16/11/2018
Hiroshima Aster Plaza Multi-Purpose Studio
189 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata defeated Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko when Oishi pinned Hirata after the Reincarnation from Yoshihiko (8:40).
2. MAO & Kota Umeda defeated Takeshi Okada & Mizuki Watase when Umeda pinned Watase with the Umeda Driver (10:22).

6. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Tag Match Without Humanity: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Takatonic (14:26).

The back and forth between Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi continues with both wrestlers attempting each other’s finishing moves during the main event. This time around Takanashi was able to hit the Takatonic to pin the KO-D Openweight Champion. Takanashi told the crowd afterwards he will beat Sasaki again later this month to become the champion.

Antonio Honda & Rey Paloma lost to DAMNATION when they both charged in to do Bionic Elbows only to hit each other by accident. The two both made up for it by dancing with each other after the match.

The team of Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko also had problems working together except this one completely fell apart. Yoshihiko was taking care of Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata until Kazuki Hirata stepped in and knocked down his partner in the process. Yoshihiko got angry and gave Hirata the Reincarnation. Oishi then piled on top of them to pin Hirata.

Danshoku Dieno greeted the fans at the start of the show. He was upset that he couldn’t remember anything by being in his hometown of Hiroshima. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to remind him of his college days in the region but Dieno got a headache and had to leave the ring. Despite his amnesia, Dieno was able to take part in an autograph signing during the show.

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Endo pinned Takanashi with the Shooting Star Press (13:03).
7. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Tag Match Without Humanity: Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Higuchi pinned Watase with the Doctor Bomb (13:21).

When the main event was over, Antonio Honda interviewed Kazusada Higuchi in the ring. He asked Higuchi how he feels after every win against Irie-gun. Higuchi says he always gives his full effort and wants to continue this momentum all the way to Korakuen Hall. Higuchi also thanked the fans in attendance today for cheering him on. Honda then asked Higuchi what was it like to team with Antonio Honda today? Higuchi says Honda is a wonderful person but he isn’t interested in him talking about “Gon, The Little Fox” all the time. Higuchi ended the interview by saying he will beat Shigehiro Irie for the KO-D Openweight Title at Korakuen.

DAMNATION taped HARASHIMA by his hands to the ring post so they could get a numbers advantage. The plan worked and DAMNATION got the win. They continued to attack HARASHIMA after the match and choked him with a collar.

Hiroshima natives Danshoku Dieno and Rey Paloma wanted to face Osaka’s Konosuke Takeshita in a comedy 3 Way Match. Shenanigans included each wrestler crotching themselves on the ropes and having their shorts pulled down. Takeshita was about to give Paloma the German Suplex when Dieno stopped him with a Lip Lock and trapped him in the Gay-do Clutch. Dieno held onto the ropes for leverage to get the three count. Even though Paloma didn’t win, he declared the match a victory for Hiroshima. Takeshita joined in the fun by putting on Paloma’s entrance gear then he danced with him.

As soon as Kenshin Chikano won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title, his entire team began to squabble over the belt. The title moved to Takeshi Okada while Naomi Yoshimura failed over and over to become the champion. When Okada though he had escaped with the belt, Makoto Oishi snuck up with a Low Blow and a School Boy to steal the title from him.

Some of the DDT wrestlers are beginning to wise up to Hiratimo Dragon’s match plan. Yuki Ueno didn’t fall for his unmasking tactic. However Saki Akai did and it cost them the match. Progress is being made but it’s not a lot.

Shunma Katsumata said Kota Umeda is strong but they are not 1:1 equal.

7. A Match To Verify What To Do In Order To Keep Ken Ohka From Crying Against Tenshin Nasukawa: Danshoku Dieno & Ken Ohka Vs Mike Bailey & Tanomusaku Toba

On this week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”, Ken Ohka learned he will have to face kickboxing protege Tenshin Nasukawa later this month. Ohka is scared of what will happen to him when he faces the undefeated kickboxer. Danshoku Dieno is coming up with ideas to motivate Ohka and help him handle his fear. Maybe a match against two kick heavy wrestlers isn’t the brightest idea.

Gota Ihashi has been training to get on Riki Choshu’s next event. There are two problems to this. 1) Choshu wants nothing to do with him and 2) some of the DDT wrestlers are getting annoyed by Ihashi’s behaviour and now want to kick his ass. Yukio Sakaguchi mainly.

Matsuyama City Community Center Planning Exhibition Hall

1. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino

4. If You Wrestle, Do Something Like This! Matsuyama Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie

DDT and Big Japan are running shows back to back in the same venue that day. However I don’t think there will be cross-promotional matches on either show.

Ryutaro Watanabe was a DDT trainee from 2012 who was never able to wrestle because of two dislocated shoulder injuries. Now he returns years later asking Sanshiro Takagi if he could finally debut and do so in front of his hometown. Takagi accepted and Watanabe will wrestle against Tetsuya Endo. Endo was chosen because his debut in 2012 is the closest to the time Watanabe was in training.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “PARADISE TRAIN 2018”, 17/06/2018

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Ideological Struggle ~The Enemy Of Yesterday Is The Friend Of Today~: Ken Ohka & Brian Aki Vs Yumehito Imanari & Takeshi Okada
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shuichiro Katsumura

Last year Mineo Fujita created a promotion called Chinko Pro Wrestling and held shows every month or two until a dick injury took him out of action. Fujita blamed the injury on accumulated damage to his dick from wrestling on those shows so this July he is putting the company on hiatus until his dick has fully recovered. Tominaga wants to wrestle Fujita on behalf of Ganbare☆Wrestling to prove that Ganpro is better than Chinko Pro. This impressed Ken Ohka enough to take Tominaga out of his already booked tag match and put him against Fujita one on one.

Aaron Anders is from Compound Pro Wrestling in Oklahoma, USA. He takes Tominaga’s original spot in the opening tag team match.

6. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Honorable 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Mike Bailey defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takao pinned Sasaki with the Gin And Tonic (16:01).

More chairs went flying between Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao. Sasaki introduced one to the main event and used it on Takao outside the ring and also when the referee was distracted. The tide turned when HARASHIMA and Mike Bailey wiped out the rest of DAMNATION with dives. There was no one to save Sasaki when Takao pinned him with the Gin And Tonic. Takao said the last time he was in Hiroshima he lost his match (to Mad Paulie) so the victory today made him a lot happier. Takao, HARASHIMA and Bailey all promised to win their matches at Korakuen Hall on Thursday.

Local wrestler Rey Paloma got some of the spotlight during DDT’s visit to Hiroshima. Before his match began, he and a few of the other wrestlers spoke about their family histories. Paloma revealed that he learned of a technique used by his ancestors known as the Three Arrows. It involves three people pressing their knuckles into the victim’s head at the same time. Paloma’s attempts to use the technique with Shigehiro Irie & Antonio Honda did not work until Paloma created a new Mark II version. He trapped Makoto Oishi in a Figure Leg Lock then he, Irie & Honda all swiveled their waists together until Oishi could not bear them anymore. The new technique worked and Paloma’s team picked up the victory.
