0. Under Match: Mad Paulie defeated Mizuki Watase with the Reverse Splash (2:56).
1. King Of DDT 2019 – Loser Resurrection Battle Royal: HARASHIMA defeated Kota Umeda with the Somato (7:18).
Order Of Elimination: Mike Bailey, Yuki Ueno, Kazuki Hirata, MAO and Kota Umeda.
2. Noboribetsu City Councillor With 674 Votes In Mind (Affiliate, Newcomer) Tomoya Adachi Comes To Mars Gym!: Tomoya, Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi defeated Antonio Honda, Mike Rollins & Ricky Starks when Tomoya pinned Starks with a Headstand Backslide Pin (8:50).
3. Makoto Oishi & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Hiroshi Yamato & Yuki Iino when Iwasaki pinned Iino with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster (9:37).
4. Yukio Sakaguchi & Koji Yoshida defeated Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshida pinned Shimatani with the Emerald Flowsion (8:57).
5. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 2: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Doctor Bomb (7:12).
6. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 2: Soma Takao defeated Akito with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb (9:10).
7. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 2: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Caballo 2020 (14:46).
8. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 2: HARASHIMA defeated Daisuke Sasaki with the Somato (12:59).

We are now down to four in the King Of DDT and one of them is making a miraculous comeback. HARASHIMA won the opening match Battle Royal to re-enter the tournament then in the main event defeated Daisuke Sasaki to reach the semi-finals. Konosuke Takeshita used a new version of the Camel Clutch called the Caballo 2020 to beat Naomi Yoshimura by submission. Soma Takao continues to be unbeatable when he uses the Reverse Gory Special Bomb, this time getting the win over Akito. Last but not least Kazusada Higuchi beat Masahiro Takanashi in a match where Takanashi had none of his lookalikes around to help him.

The semi-final draw was held at the end to determine who faces who at Korakuen Hall on 19th May. Takeshita and Higuchi picked the blue balls out of the box while HARASHIMA and Takao grabbed the pink ones. So we’re getting Takeshita Vs Higuchi and HARASHIMA Vs Takao!

Yukio Sakaguchi and Tetsuya Endo spent a lot of time fighting each other in their tag match. Sakaguchi put Endo in a Sleeper Hold at ringside and kept him held there while Koji Yoshida hit the Emerald Flowsion on Nobuhiro Shimatani.

Tomoya gave a speech about his recent election into the Noboribetsu City Council. He said that back in 2012 a one year old infant in his region died from abuse. Ever since then he has wanted to stop bullying and abusive behaviour which led to him running for the city council. He thanked everyone for their continued support.

After intermission Sanshiro Takagi was asked when he would like to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet for a KO-D Openweight Title match. He said he is 49 years old now but will be hiring a personal trainer so he can get back into the shape he was in 10 years ago. He probably won’t cash in his Gauntlet until he reaches that goal. Suddenly MAO and Yuki Ueno interrupted the interview and dared to set up an anal explosion inside the venue. Takagi stopped them by announcing he will defend his Gauntlet in a match that will include MAO and Ueno on 19th May.

DDT’s return to Sapporo on 5th and 6th October will be part of a co-sponsored series with Big Japan.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS SHINING, I WILL FLY TO SAPPORO!” Results

May 6, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS SHINING, I WILL FLY TO SAPPORO!”, 06/05/2019
Hokkaido Sapporo Susukino Mars Gym
222 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Mahiro Kiryu & Mirai Maiumi when Tenma pinned Maiumi with the Killswitch (9:11).
2. 3 Way Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Raku and Himawari Unagi when Tatsumi pinned Raku with the Dragon Twist Of Fate (8:07).
3. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa defeated Maki Itoh & Pom Harajuku when Noa pinned Harajuku with the Uranage (7:33).
4. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Haruna Neko defeated Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa when Sakazaki pinned Shirakawa with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (8:22).
5. Sakisama & Misao defeated Marika Kobashi & Miu Watanabe when Misao pinned Watanabe with the Vanitas (12:10).
6. SHINE Title: Allysin Kay defeated Miyu Yamashita (c) with the Big D (14:14).
*Miyu Yamashita fails in V1. Allysin Kay becomes the 10th SHINE Champion!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) defeated Thunder Rosa with the Diving Senton (13:25).
*V1 for Shoko Nakajima.

It was a close call but Shoko Nakajima scored her first TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title defence. Ten minutes into the match Thunder Rosa hit the Reinella Splash that has been her match finisher for this tour but Nakajima got a foot on the rope to break the pin. She countered another Reinella Splash into a DDT then hit the Diving Senton for the victory. Nakajima called Rosa a big kaiju and asked her to please come back to Japan. Nakajima also said she likes Sapporo because it is where the movie Gamera 2 is set.

Miyu Yamashita is now completely trophy-less after she lost the SHINE Title back to the previous champion Allysin Kay. The match went back and forth until the Big D Spinning Lariat put Yamashita down for the count. Kay said this time she knew what to expect from Yamashita although she is still feeling a headache from her kicks. It’s a short tour for her but she’d like to come back for a longer stay. And if that can’t happen, she’s fine with Yamashita going to America again for a third match.

Maki Itoh has a new entrance song called “Brooklyn The Hole”.

The 3 Way Match was more like a Handicap Match with Raku and Himawari Unagi taking sides against Rika Tatsumi. This situation seems to happen to Tatsumi a lot.

With Hikaru Shida completing the team, Saki Akai is now ready to challenge the Sendai Girls. Shida wrestles in Sendai Girls herself so she is very familiar with Meiko Satomura, Chihiro Hashimoto & DASH Chisako. The one who wants to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles the most is Asuka because she wants to wear the title belts like an accessory. The way the team is laid out has Akai as the leader, Asuka as the sub-leader and Shida as the “New Member”.

DDT “BLACK OUT PRESENTS KING OF DDT 2019 THE FINAL!!”, 19/05/2019

1. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
2. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
3. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X

The official news update for this show is Maku Donaruto will be there! The unofficial news is Keisuke Ishii wants to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet on this show so he can face Endo for the KO-D Title. Due to the new rules that are meant to encourage surprise cash ins, DDT is currently in a position where they cannot promote Endo Vs Ishii for now and have to act like it won’t be happening.

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: Antonio Honda (c) Vs Akito

Something that Antonio Honda and Akito have in common is they both think their biggest career highlight involved the DDT Extreme Title. So it’s fitting the two will fight over it.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

During a press conference yesterday Endo was supposed to select one of the seven losers in the King Of DDT 1st Round to defend the KO-D Title against. However he struggled to remember any of the wrestlers he could choose from. Hisaya Imabayashi listed the names and Endo commented after each one. Kota Umeda? He’s the guy who always hurts his knees. MAO? He’s a fucked up bad guy. Mike Bailey? He’s that guy who can’t do anything without MAO. HARASHIMA? Endo hates him. Kazuki Hirata? Endo would choose him but Hirata is already wrestling for a championship at the show. Yuki Ueno? He was thrown away by his friend. Yukio Sakaguchi? Beaten by Daisuke Sasaki and he won’t stop crying about it.

What Endo didn’t realise was that Sakaguchi was in the building and overheard Endo’s comments. He crashed the press conference and attacked Endo, beating him down! Sakaguchi used Endo’s “Two types of people in the world” motto against him and said he is now on his kill list! When Sakaguchi stormed out of the room, Endo demanded that he be his opponent for the KO-D Title match! This won’t be a pro wrestling match, Endo says he will kill Sakaguchi!

When Miyu Yamashita won the SHINE Title in New York earlier this month, she invited the former champion Allysin Kay to come to Japan for a championship rematch.

So she is taking up Yamashita’s offer to have the rematch in Japan. She promises that this time there won’t be any funny business over the result.


King Of DDT 2019

April 16, 2019

It’s a little early this year but the King Of DDT is back for its 2019 edition. This time around the prize is a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” in Ota Ward Gymnasium on 15th July as well as 1,000,000 yen from the distributors of the DDT energy drink BLACK OUT. Only 14 wrestlers are taking part this year and the layout will be explained below. No newcomers, every entry has been in at least one previous King Of DDT tournament.

DDT “KING OF DDT 2019 1ST ROUND”, 29/04/2019

6. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 1F: Yuki Ueno Vs Konosuke Takeshita
7. King Of DDT 2019 – Round 1G: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

Every match in the tournament has no time limit. The big match of note is the rematch of Round 1’s final bout from 2018, Kazuki Hirata against Naomi Yoshimura. Hirata was a last minute replacement and he defeated Yoshimura to start a miracle run in the 32 man tournament. Yuki Ueno Vs Konosuke Takeshita is a match between two friends and generational rivals. Akito against HARASHIMA may be a preview of a future DDT Extreme Title match since Akito is challenging for that belt in May. Mike Bailey and Soma Takao are currently clashing in the chaos that is the KO-D Tag Team Titles scene. Last one to keep an eye on is Kazusada Higuchi Vs Kota Umeda. Those two click as both opponents and tag partners.
