6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Antonio Honda when he stripped off Honda’s bra (13:42).
*V3 for HARASHIMA.

Maybe it was skill or maybe it was blind luck but HARASHIMA defeated Antonio Honda in the Blindfold & Bra Match. At one point Honda rolled out of the ring and HARASHIMA tried to chase after him. Honda pulled the shirts off of Yuki Iino and Nobuhiro Shimatani when they stood too close to him. They were both wearing bras underneath even though it wasn’t mandatory for them to do so. Back in the ring Honda applied an Octopus Hold to HARASHIMA and succeeded in unhooking his bra. HARASHIMA defended himself well so Honda rolled him into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch. That was a grave mistake because the positioning allowed HARASHIMA to unhook Honda’s bra and strip it right off him by kicking out of the hold, resulting in a victory for HARASHIMA! After the match he said he hasn’t decided on the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. For now his focus is on winning the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie on 22nd July!

Another good effort from Kota Umeda that just wasn’t enough in his latest match of the Mad Dog Trials. Dick Togo’s ring awareness allowed him to trap Umeda in the Cross Facelock several times. The one that made Umeda finally tap out was transitioned into a modified version of the move that looks similar to the Dick Killer. Togo thinks Umeda can still grow into becoming the so called “Mad Dog” that he claims to be but for now he is still in the stage where he should be establishing a style for himself. His advice to Umeda is to wrestle more and more because pro wrestling is more than a career, it’s an experience.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was up for grabs in a 10 minute long Battle Royal. The champion KUDO had Masahiro Takanashi fighting by his side against the rest of the field but the chaos was too much to handle. Nobuhiro Shimatani found his moment to strike and he pinned KUDO with a School Boy to win the title. Everyone ganged up on him until Saori Anou found her spot to win the belt with a Fisherman Suplex. KUDO had a change of heart and decided to protect Anou by fending off those who attacked her including including his friends Takanashi and Saki Akai. Anou didn’t appreciate KUDO’s aid and she kicked him out of the ring. She got into a back and forth with Akai until Akai pinned her with a Diving Cross Body. Shimatani got the title back with a Small Package with two minutes left to go. Konosuke Takeshita made his presence felt by giving Shimatani a Brainbuster onto the title belt. Takeshita got the pin and stayed as champion for the final minute of the match.

The Battle Royal was over but there were still people who wanted the Iron Man Title. Yuki Iino tried to pin Takeshita with a School Boy outside the ring but he kicked out. Danshoku Dieno then ran out and gave Takeshita the Lip Lock in the ring. He went for the pin but Sanshiro Takagi suddenly broke it up by throwing a chair at Dieno! Takagi invited this week’s special guest Akari Suda from SKE48 down to the ring so she can become the champion! Yukinori Matsui was against the idea but immediately changed his mind when Suda shook his hand. Takagi gave Takeshita a Stunner then Suda locked him into the Ocotpus Hold, the dreaded finishing move of World Idol Pro Wrestling star Octopus Suda! Takeshita clearly did not give up but Matsui ruled he was knocked out and rewarded the Iron Man Title to Suda! Takagi warned Suda that she may be attacked by people who want the championship at any time. Suda asked Takagi if he can protect her if that is the case.

The 3 Way Trios match wasn’t held under Hardcore rules but MAO still used a plastic toy hammer on some of his opponents during the match. Sammy Guevara and Facade ran circles around the rest of the participants and floored them all with dives out of the ring. Guevara then finished off Daiki Shimomura with the 630 Splash to give Irie-gun the victory. Tetsuya Endo wants MAO to know that their KO-D Tag Team Titles match on 22nd July won’t be a Hardcore match so he better leave the weapons at home. Mad Paulie stole some pictures of Facade from the merch stand. Endo scolded Paulie until he found a picture of Saori Anou among them.

The BIG LOVE between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka is strong for the most part. Well there was that moment when Sasaki accidentally hit Asuka with a Clothesline but that honestly was an accident. Asuka recovered and countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstasy into a Choke Slam of her own. She then pinned Oishi with the Moonsault. Sasaki begged Asuka to forgive him after the match. What he did was the biggest tragedy of this century and he promised to never do it again. Asuka said “BIG LOVE!” to Sasaki and they hugged. When asked about their upcoming singles match against each other at Korakuen Hall, Sasaki told everyone to look forward to it because they will show love to each other in the ring.

With the future of DNA up in the air, the Naomi Kingdom are looking to the future and it involves finishing off their rivals on the final show. Keisuke Okuda doesn’t care where they end up because he isn’t afraid of anything. If all of the juniors below him have fear then they should stop wrestling. Naomi Yoshimura wants to take down Yuki Ueno once and for all before DNA is done. After that he will be free to do what he wants whether it is in DDT, DNA or anywhere else in the company.

Akito’s submission skills got him out of a jam. He reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock from Yuki Ueno to grab the victory.

Danshoku Dieno didn’t let his one show suspension from the main Maji Manji card let him down. He came out for his dark match with cans of beer ready to get the crowd fired up! He was also drinking to promote the Beer Garden shows taking place in August. He invited Rekka to join in the fun and they both wrestled while drinking. It got a bit out of control when they spat beer with each other and used the beer cans as weapons.

5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

A classic ruleset is coming back for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match. The match will run non-stop for 10 minutes and whoever is the champion at the end will be declared the winner.

The current Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders are Meiko Satomura (Red), HARASHIMA (Green), Akito (Yellow), Yukio Sakaguchi (Black) and Yuki Iino (Blue). Shigehiro Irie still thinks that the gimmick is unnecessary. It’s not that he hates the concept, it is because he will accept the challenges from anybody who steps up to him anyway. He wonders whenever the Gauntlet holders publicly tell everyone that they are not using their title shot if they even want to be a champion. And if they don’t want to be champion then why are they wrestling? If any of the holders want to cash in their shot straight after Irie’s match ends, he will still be ready for them. Irie always has two fights in him whenever he steps into the ring.

Irie has also criticised DDT for failing to evolve their comedy style over the years. He thinks Danshoku Dieno is partly to blame for that as the DDT Producer. Another problem is Irie’s plans for DDT aren’t coming to fruition like he was promised. He wants to defend the KO-D Openweight Title overseas but accuses Dieno of not doing anything in his power to help put it together.

DDT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING 2018” Results

June 24, 2018

DDT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING 2018”, 24/06/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
1,159 Fans – Super No Vacancy

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase & Aaron Anders defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Kouki Iwasaki when Anders pinned Iwasaki with the Twisting Flapjack (8:42).
1. Loser Expulsion 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii, Antonio Honda & MAO and Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Takatimo Dragon, Hiratimo Dragon & Toru Owashi by Disqualification when Owashi was Disqualified for everything (6:51).

3. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – “KUDO” 15th Anniversary Memorial Match: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi (c) & Super Sasadango Machine when KUDO pinned Oishi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (9:43).
*KUDO becomes the 1,321st champion.
4. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda (c) when Katsumata pinned Ueno with the ¡Hasta La Vista! (11:16).
*Umeda-gumi fails in V2. ALL OUT becomes the 34th KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!
5. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Soma Takao and Daisuke Sasaki when HARASHIMA pinned Takao with the Somato (15:58).
*V2 for HARASHIMA.
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Kazusada Higuchi with the Beast Bomber (20:58).
*V2 for Shigehiro Irie.

Two heavyweights smashed each other to bits in the main event and when the dust was settled, Shigehiro Irie stood over Kazusada Higuchi, still the KO-D Openweight Champion. Higuchi brought his table smashing antics over from “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” by Power Slamming Irie onto one from the ring apron. Irie got violent too by doing a Slingshot Senton Bomb to Higuchi underneath a pile of chairs outside the ring. Most of Higuchi’s big moves like the Doctor Bomb and Leg Roll Clutch were kicked out of. Irie bounced back from Higuchi’s Lariats with his Cannonball attacks then when Higuchi was weakened enough, the Beast Bomber put him down for the count.

Irie gave Higuchi a brief thank you after the match and it didn’t take long for his next title defence to be put together. Hisaya Imabayashi announced Irie will defend the title in Korakuen Hall on 22d July. He then asked if any of the Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders would like to use their title shot on that date. HARASHIMA entered the ring and said he will do it! He would have liked to do it right now but he wants to fight Irie when he is in his perfect state. Imabayashi asked HARASHIMA if he also wants to put his DDT Extreme Title on the line. HARASHIMA declined because he wants to defend it against Antonio Honda next, maybe in a Blindfold & Bra Death Match like they did back in 2013. HARASHIMA told Irie he’s become a strong champion but he does not like what he is doing to DDT. HARASHIMA doesn’t want people with an attitude like Irie’s to be champion because it can be damaging to DDT. Irie said he is glad that HARASHIMA is his next challenger. He’s been waiting for this match most of all out of the Gauntlet holders. He dismissed HARASHIMA’a claim that his title reign and attitude is making DDT rotten.

Imabayashi reminded HARASHIMA that should he lose his Gauntlet before 22nd July, his spot in the title match will become vacant. He must have his Gauntlet on the day to guarantee his position. Irie yelled at Imabayashi for interrupting him and said he doesn’t care if HARASHIMA has a Gauntlet or not. He wants the match to happen regardless. Imabayashi called over to Producer Danshoku Dieno and they asked if Irie understands the rules of the Gauntlets. Irie blasted insults at Dieno for his role as DDT’s Producer. Dieno tried to calm him down but Irie continued to yell at him until Irie had enough and left the ring.

Remember how the 3 Way Match was supposed to have no cheating and no interference for the sake of good sportsmanship? Yeah, that didn’t happen. Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao didn’t wait long to get help from Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie. Together DAMNATION tore apart HARASHIMA until Shuten-dōji came to rescue him. With the interference gone the match turned into 2-on-1 with Sasaki and Takao helping each other. That blew up when Sasaki was trying to put HARASHIMA in the Cross Facelock. Takao went in for a Thrust Kick but struck Sasaki by accident! HARASHIMA got rid of Sasaki with the Somato then countered Takao’s Gin And Tonic into the Yama-ori head drop. Another Somato put away Takao and meant HARASHIMA is still the Extreme Champion! HARASHIMA thanked Shuten-dōji for helping him. They were still presumably fighting with DAMNATION backstage but if they could hear HARASHIMA, he invited them out to go drinking later.

All the hard work Shunma Katsumata has put into his training has finally paid off. ALL OUT are now the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions! He with the help of his partners whittled the champions down to just Yuki Ueno in the ring. While Kota Umeda & Koju Takeda did what they could to keep the match alive, Konosuke Takeshita & Akito held them back long enough for Katsumata to finish the job. Takeshita told Katsumata backstage that his efforts in training was finally rewarded. Akito also reminded Katsumata that ALL OUT is not just the three of them. There’s Diego as well and it feels like he was with them in spirit supporting their title win. Over at the losing side, Ueno is worried that his team won’t be able to bounce back from this because they aren’t a proper unit. All they can do is work hard but today they learned that individual power by itself is not enough.

KUDO never thought his wrestling career would last 15 years. He was able to do it with all of the support from his friends, his seniors and his juniors. His anniversary match ended with him pinning Makoto Oishi to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and to cap it all off, he was even given flowers from HARASHIMA. KUDO is happy but now feels a little worried about having the Iron Man Title on him.

Sammy Guevara didn’t come to DDT to make friends, at least that’s judging by the middle finger he gave Mike Bailey at the start of their match. At first Bailey was one step ahead of of the newcomer. Some surprise pop-up Knee Strikes and dives put Guevara in control until the Green Tea Plunge came out of nowhere to give Bailey the victory. Backstage Bailey said he will be spending a month in England. When he comes back he wants himself and MAO to go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Guevara called Bailey a terrible high flyer and demanded a rematch. He also wants everyone to go look at his Youtube channel. Guevara was later seen standing with Mizuki Watase in Irie’s corner for the main event.

Let’s look at all of the reasons why Toru Owashi was disqualified in the opener. Unmasking two wrestlers and allegedly attacking everybody with three chairs, a broom, a basin, a bottle of oil and a ladder. He had so many items attached to him that he ended up looking like a game of Buckaroo! The last minute loser leaves town stipulation meant that Owashi is now banished from Japan. DDT immediately announced that Washitimo Dragon will make his debut on 26th June. Yuki Iino came down wearing an Ultimo Dragon mask to carry Owashi away from ringside with a few other wrestlers. Then there was another announcement. The real Ultimo Dragon is coming back to DDT on 3rd July!

Aaron Anders was able to give Kouki Iwasaki the Twisting Flapjack after Mizuki Watase tripped Iwasaki by the ropes.

Joey Ryan & Laura James have challenged Makoto Oishi & Misaki Ohata to a match at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” on 21st October. Ryan & James accuse Oishi & Ohata of stealing their idea of having a marriage proposal during a wrestling match. Oishi admitted he needed to do a couple of takes for the match announcement video because he kept saying his partner was Shiori Asahi instead of Ohata out of habit.

Taiyo Kea makes his DDT debut on the 25th August Korakuen Hall show.

The Up Up Girls (Fake) wanted to perform a dance routine at the start of the show but Imabayashi mercifully stopped them.

DDT’s return to the Handmade In Japan Fes on 7th July will feature one match. It will be Sanshiro Takagi & Kazusada Higuchi Vs HARASHIMA & Keisuke Ishii Vs Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi in a 3 Way Tag Match.

Kazuki Hirata and Toru Owashi are the latest DDT wrestlers to get gender-swapped characters for the Ring☆Dream online game. Their characters will be added during the summer.

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.

-. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Makoto Oishi (c) with a School Boy (8:50 pm).
*Nobuhiro Shimatani becomes the 1,317th champion.

Kota Umeda put up a good fight against Masato Tanaka but it wasn’t enough and he is now 0-3 in his trial series. Tanaka referred to Umeda as “Mad Dog” after the match and told him he loves how bullish he was in the ring. Umeda was then told by Hisaya Imabayashi that his next opponents in the trial is Dick Togo! Umeda Vs Togo will be held on 10th July.

That wasn’t all. Makoto Oishi entered the ring with his newly won Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to speak with Umeda. He said Umeda just had a great match that almost made him cry with joy. But that doesn’t matter. Oishi is the Iron Man Champion and he declared the championship is the number one prize in “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”. Oishi was in the middle of challenging Umeda to a title match when Nobuhiro Shimatani ran into the ring and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Oishi tried to regain his senses and again demanded a match with Umeda until he realised Umeda left him alone in the ring.

Shigehiro Irie wasn’t satisfied by the amount of ring time he had with Kazusada Higuchi this week. The finish had Kouki Iwasaki laid out on a table in the ring. Mizuki Watase gave Higuchi a top rope Diamond Cutter onto Iwasaki to crash him through the table. Irie then made Iwasaki tap out with the Tazzmission. However earlier in the match Higuchi was able to defend himself against Irie’s Traffic Accident tackle. He warned Irie that he will make a big mistake if he thinks power is all that is needed to win their match.

An extra rule was added to Danshoku Dieno & Ken Ohka Vs Mike Bailey & Tanomusaku Toba. If a wrestler cried during the match his team would lose. Both Dieno & Ohka got kicked in the ass a lot and Ohka finally broke after repeated double kicks to the ass from Bailey & Toba. Dieno told Ohka he can’t be crying when he fights Tenshin Nasukawa in two weeks time. They will do a special training exercise on 20th June at the Dropkick Bar. They are going to watch “Grave of the Fireflies” and Ohka will have to not cry during it. Dieno also invited fans to bring in other sad movies for Ohka to watch. Ohka promises he will never cry again for the rest of his life, even if his family dies!

Konosuke Takeshita thinks Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda are fresh opponents for him. He also reminded everyone that he is the same age as Ueno and Kota Umeda. He doesn’t want to lose against this fresh trio of wrestlers. Shunma Katsumata thinks ALL OUT will win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles because their their hearts are fresh. Takeshita disagrees and thinks his own heart is a bit gritty.

DAMNATION continues to get the upper hand over HARASHIMA in their feud. Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao ambushed HARASHIMA during his entrance. Takao then rubbed salt into the wounds even further by doing the Somato on Masahiro Takanashi to win the match! However Takao claims it is an original move called the Soma-to, named after himself. It is different to HARASHIMA’s Somato because the knees are positioned at a different angle. Tetsuya Endo later said he is keeping his Right To Challenge Gauntlet as a back up until Mad Paulie figures out how to use his own Gauntlet.

All of the RTC Gauntlet holders in the Battle Royal were able to breath a sigh of relief when they found out the Gauntlets could not be transferred by ring out eliminations. Hiratimo Dragon eliminated most of the field by tricking the ref into thinking five of them all unmasked him. Makoto Oishi was able to eliminated Hiratimo and eventually win the match to become the Iron Man Champion. Hiratimo promised that next week he and Takatimo Dragon will go on a rampage! A concerned Sanshiro Takagi said on commentary that he won’t be here next week to see what happens.

Gota Ihashi wasn’t able to beat Yukio Sakaguchi but Sakaguchi was able to see how hard he is working towards a chance at redemption with Riki Choshu. Sakaguchi promised Ihashi he will pass on some good words to Choshu. Ihashi is hoping to get booked on Choshu’s next show on 10th July.

In past instances, wrestlers who eliminate a gauntlet holder in these matches even by throwing them out of the ring get to win their gauntlet. Usually the only way for a Gauntlet holder to survive is to win the match or eliminated themselves by jumping over the top rope.

The feud between Hercules Senga and the Best Stretchmen has driven Senga mad. So mad that he now wrestles in a banana suit and is called Banana Senga by the ring announcers. His first appearance as a banana saw him beat the Best Stretchmen in what was supposed to be the final match between them. However Best Stretchman V3 booked at least two more final matches between him and Senga this month. He wants to do more and more feud ending matches with Senga from now until I suppose the end of time.

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.

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.

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.
