7. Union MAX Title & DOVE World Title: Naoki Tanizaki (D/c) defeated Isami Kodaka (U/c) with the Libido (16:27).
*Isami Kodaka fails in V6. Naoki Tanizaki becomes the 10th Union MAX Champion! V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Dove Pro Wrestling is back with a vengeance and they now have BASARA’s championship! Naoki Tanizaki went into the Double Title main event with Gunso in his corner representing Dove Pro. Isami Kodaka came out by himself with the Union MAX Title around his waist. Tanizaki kicked out of the Diving Double Knee Drop as well as the European Clutch. He dropped Kodaka with the Implant several times throughout the match and they eventually took their toll on Kodaka. Tanizaki finally had him beat with the Casanova knee strike followed by the Libido knee lift for the three count. Tanizaki said the title win was for all of the Dove Pro believers who cheered for him today. He feels confident that he has beaten the best that BASARA has to offer. When he said this, Takumi Tsukamoto came out and challenged him to a MAX Title match. When Tanizaki and Gunso left, Kodaka called all of the BASARA home wrestlers to join him in the ring. He thinks Tsukamoto can bring the Union MAX Title back to BASARA but Kodaka still wants to fight Tanizaki one on one again some day. The show is over and BASARA is starting over. They may have lost today but they will come out of this stronger than they were before!

There is something about Ryota Nakatsu that Ikuto Hidaka seems to like. He feels like he is now Nakatsu’s 45 year old uncle and they will still be wrestling each other until Nakatsu can outkick his uncle. Hidaka admits that if today wasn’t a tag match, he would have lost to Nakatsu after he took his V Slider finisher. Minoru Fujita was also impressed by Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine today.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi returned from a long absence as a changed man. He took up yoga to recover from his dislocated shoulder and travelled to India to learn more about the practice. For his first match back Hiroshi went face to face with Osamu Nishimura. Quite a big opponent for him but he stayed calm throughout. Hiroshi meditated while he was put in submission holds to withstand the pain. Soon Nishimura meditated too and they were both inactive for so long that the referee began to count them towards a double knockout. Both stirred and went back to wrestling until Nishimura locked in a Sleeper Hold. Hiroshi tried to meditate again but ended up losing consciousness. Nishimura then easily rolled him into a Cobra Twist to pin him. He told Hiroshi afterwards that he too has visited India many times to learn yoga. The most important lesson is even if the body is destroyed, the soul will continue to live many lives. Hiroshi said he was happy to learn from a guru today. They then sang a song together.

The return of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro rivalry means the return of SAGAT and Gunso fighting each other in Hardcore Matches. SAGAT lost like he tends to but this time it was FUMA who got pinned. SAGAT gave Jun Kasai a Brainbuster from the ladder but Gunso immediately cut him off with the Diving Guillotine Drop. FUMA fought off his opponents until Gunso took him down with a chair shot. Kasai gave FUMA the Reverse Tiger Driver then Kasai & Gunso hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Diving Guillotine Drop to FUMA at the same time for the win. Kasai ripped off FUMA’s heavy metal shirt after the match and threw it into the crowd.

Fuminori Abe had a spirited fight against Minoru Tanaka. During their early exchanges Abe told Tanaka “I believe the B in BASARA stands for Batibati!” then he hit him with strikes. Abe later kicked out of the Superfly at one but was quickly put down with the Sliding D. Tanaka shook Abe’s hand after the match but Abe slapped Tanaka across the face in response. Tanaka didn’t mind it. He said that it was a cheerful match and he likes to face wrestlers with Abe’s style of fighting. He didn’t know what to expect because he never saw anything from Abe before today. It was fun though and if the wrestlers have fun with what they are doing then the fans will have fun watching them.

The rest of the BASARA wrestlers were pitted against the Metal Family in a 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match. The weakest of the BASARA team Gouma Ryu took a beating but Yasu Urano was there to keep the numbers even. Ryu was able to eliminate Trans-Am ★ Tanaka by gutsy luck. Tanaka kicked him from the apron but as Ryu fell he tripped Tanaka and pulled him to the floor with him. That left Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi as the final two. They fought on the apron until Tsukamoto knocked Ryuichi to the floor with the Thrust Kick to win the match for BASARA!

Takato Nakano tried to pin Manabu Hara with several different Cradles but a Cross Armbreaker ended the match in Hara’s favour.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “YES! WONDERLAND 2018 ~BREAK MYSELF!~” Results

May 3, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “YES! WONDERLAND 2018 ~BREAK MYSELF!~”, 03/05/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi defeated Saki-sama & Azusa Christie (c) when Kobashi pinned Christie with a Dropkick (16:20).
*NEO Biishiki-gun fails in V 3. Muscle JK Strikers become the 3rd TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Crash Rabbit Heat (20:04).
*V4 for Miyu Yamashita.

So close yet still so far. For twenty minutes on a brand new ring canvas, Rika Tatsumi chased after the champion Miyu Yamashita and gave it everything she got. Tatsumi trapped Yamashita in the Dragon Sleeper and tried to choke her out again but this time Yamashita kicked her way out of it. Yamashita did a High Kick and an Attitude Adjustment for a nearfall. From that point on Yamashita hit Backspin Kicks and Buzzsaw Kicks to keep Tatsumi down until Tatsumi was too weak to block the Crash Rabbit Heat. A defeated Tatsumi was helped to the back by Maho Kurone while Yamashita celebrated another TOKYO Princess Title defence. Yamashita told everyone she had fun being taken to her limit by Tatsumi. But she still needs energy left over because the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show is only two days away in Itabashi. As long as Yamashita keeps standing in this ring and as long as there is support from everyone, Yamashita will go beyond her limits even more!

Vengeance is sweet for Marika Kobashi! After suffering so much humiliation from NEO Biishiki-gun, Kobashi finally won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from them with Reika Saiki. The intensive training Kobashi had with Saiki leading up to the match paid off. Saiki was at her strongest and at one point suplexed both Saki-saka & Azusa Christie at the same time. Saiki and Saki-sama took each other out with a Shining Wizard from Saiki followed in response with a Big Boot from Saki. Christie tried to hit the Christie Agape on Kobashi but it was blocked. Christie hit a Codebreaker but Kobashi toughened it out a stunned Christie with a Dropkick for the surprise three count! An angry Christie refused to accept the result but Saki-sama calmed her down. Everybody makes mistakes and surely there is something that Christie cherishes more than a championship belt. Christie said there is and it’s Saki-sama. They then left the ring for the new champions to celebrate. Kobashi said she has dreamed of this day for so long. Saiki told her it is now their goal to defend the titles as much as possible. The Ito Respect Army then came out to challenge them. They agreed to a match on the 19th May show in Kitazawa, two days after Kobashi’s birthday. Maki Ito promised to give her the gift of regretful tears when she and Mizuki become the new champions!

A special rule was added to the Falls Count Anywhere Match between Hyper Misao and Jun Kasai. Each wrestler needed to eat an entire bag of chocolate or else their pinfall attempts will not be counted. Misao came up with the idea and convinced Kasai that it counts as a death match. Kasai accepted the rule because he never turns down a death match! When the bell rang both Misao and Kasai rushed through their bag of chocolate until Kasai went in search of water to wash it down. He had to ask the audience for a drink because Misao secretly hid his bottle. When they started wrestling, Kasai put Misao in a Cobra Twist but Misao spat water at him to escape. Misao escaped and Kasai went searching for her. He went to the lobby and found a castle of chairs laid out in front of him. Hyper Misao surprised him by coming out on the Combat Bicycle and she sped towards him. Kasai moved out of the way and Misao crashed into the castle of chairs! Kasai went back to ringside but Misao caught up with him. She snuck up to one of the audience entrances and dove onto Kasai. They returned to the ring where Kasai took out a ladder. He tried to press it onto Misao’s head and shoulders but that backfired when Misao spun around to hit him with the ladder. Misao set a table at ringside but Kasai knocked her down onto it. Kasai then climbed the turnbuckles and splashed Misao through the table! Kasai rolled her back into the ring and went for the pin but the referee refused to count. Kasai never finished his bag of chocolate! He ate the last piece and went for the Reverse Tiger Driver but Misao fought out of it. Misao went for a Cross Body but Kasai caught her with a Lariat. He positioned her in the centre of the ring with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and finally put her away with the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder. After the match Kasai told Misao he thought the chocolate rule was stupid and a horrible idea for a death match. But something is strange. The chocolate he ate during the match was the best he ever tasted. It made him feel alive! That is the magical power of the pro wrestling ring. Together they are pro wrestlers and Kasai now considers Misao a worthy rival.

Dead Of Alive didn’t last long as a team. At first they worked well together, surprising the Miraclians with an attack before the bell. Shoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki fought back with their double team moves but Su Yung cut off their momentum by spitting red Poison Mist at Sakazaki. Maho Kurone went to give Nakajima the Ouroboros but it was blocked. Sakazaki regained her vision and hit the Magical Girl Splash on Kurone before sending Yung out of the ring with a Hurricanrana. Nakajima then got the win with the Diving Senton to Kurone. After the match Kurone and Yung butted heads before leaving in separate directions. Kurone then attacked Yung backstage. Yukinori Matsui tried to break it up but ended up having his arm bitten by Kurone.

All of the support from the fans wasn’t enough for Maki Ito to beat Riho. Ito was stretched and pulled apart by Riho’s moves but the rallying cries of “Who’s the cutest in the world? Ito-chan!” kept her fighting. She survived a Diving Double Stomp but was finally put down with the Somato. Ito was left in the ring with Mizuki to think about another defeat. Ito said she brought in Mizuki to start the Ito Respect Army but she doesn’t think Mizuki respects her. She only teams with her out of kindness. Well no more! Ito is going to disband the Ito Respect Army! Mizuki stopped her. She isn’t teaming her just out of kindness, she really wants to be with Ito. They hugged and agreed to keep the Ito Respect Army going. They got the crowd to call Ito cute again then Ito sang “Ultra Soul” while they left the ring.

Yuki Aino was feeling so emotional over her debut match that she was already wiping tears from her eyes after her entrance. Aino tagged with her older sister Nodoka-oneesan to take on Yuu and Up Up Girls member Hikari. Aino’s big spot in the match was giving Yuu a Side Suplex. However Yuu recovered and pinned Aino with the Ittenyon throw. Aino said the match felt like it came and went in a blink of an eye. She promises to work hard alongside her sister.

Yuna Manase doesn’t want to waste any time coming back from surgery. Her goal is to win the championship and she will do her best to achieve it.

Four new trainees were introduced to the audience at the beginning of the show. Haruna is only 143cm tall so she will be the shortest member of the roster when she debuts. Kyo comes from an open training class held by that DDT. Yumi is a 13 year old junior high school student who is 173cm tall. Kirino wants to be like Shawn Michaels.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LET’S GO TO OJI IN THE SPRING, TOGETHER WITH YOUR FRIENDS!”, 07/04/2018
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Yuka Sakazaki & Hinano defeated Hikari & Raku when Sakazaki pinned Hikari with the Osaekomi Backslide (5:45).
2. Yuu defeated Miu with the Katahajime (4:44)
3. 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Nodoka-oneesan and Maki Ito when Nakajima pinned Ito with a Japanese Leg Clutch Roll (7:52).
4. Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone defeated Hyper Misao & Priscilla Kelly when Tatsumi pinned Misao with the Missile Hips (9:06).
5. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Mizuki & Yuki Kamifuku when Saki-sama submitted Kamifuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (9:29).
6. Miyu Yamashita defeated Marika Kobashi with a Modified Cobra Clutch (8:41).

Marika Kobashi begun the first of two big singles matches to prepare for her next TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles challenge. Today she went up against Miyu Yamashita, entering to new music. Kobashi threw chops and elbows at the TOKYO Princess Champion and almost had her in trouble with a Swinging Bulldog. But Yamashita fired back with a High Kick, the Attitude Adjustment and then a modified Cobra Clutch that made Kobashi tap out. Yamashita told Kobashi afterwards that she is still in the process of evolving and advised her to focus on raising her mind rather than her just her physical power.

There were two things that Hyper Misao wanted to talk about today. First she feels there is a bond between her and Priscilla Kelly because they both had their debut wrestling match in Spring 2015. Because of this she felt it was her duty to teach Kelly how to formally greet your opponent before a wrestling match in Japan. They went to shake hands with the Dragon Bombers but Maho Kurone took a bite out of Kelly’s hand instead. Kelly got revenge later in the match by licking back at Kurone. The two shared a glance at each other at the end of the match.

Second, after they lost the match Misao had a special announcement to make. She told everyone about what her life was like before wrestling. She graduated from college but had no job and had nothing going for her. When her mother took her to a crafts festival she discovered DDT for the first time. DDT was at the festival presenting one of their Street Pro Wrestling matches. She had never watched pro wrestling before this and was inspired by the creativity of what she saw. From that point on she had a dream not just to be a wrestler but a hero. So her announcement is on 3rd May at Korakuen Hall she will take part in a Falls Count Anywhere match against an opponent to be determined. Sanshiro Takagi came out. Misao thought this meant Takagi was her opponent but that was impossible because Takagi had just been banished from DDT. Takagi said her opponent is someone else. It’s Jun Kasai! He came out and greeted Misao, telling her he heard that her life has been crazy in a good way ever since she saw that match. Misao said she will go into the match without fear!

Tokyo Joshi Pro and the entire Up Up Girls organisation will host a collaborative show in Shunjuku FACE on 27th June. Both the musical unit and wrestling unit of the Up Up Girls will perform at the show while Tokyo Joshi will provide wrestling matches. Maki Ito is upset that the show isn’t named after the Ito Respect Army.

Last July, Saki Akai won a Battle Royal and was rewarded the role of DDT General Manager for one day. She spent months thinking up ideas until she was finally ready to put a show together in Shinjuku FACE. She thought she would be on her own but everyone in DDT was happy to help and were willing to use all of her ideas. With their support, Akai described the preparations for the show were like playing with a toy box. It wasn’t a perfect show by her own admission. Akai rated it “60 Points” (I assume out of 100) and wished she could have given herself more talk time. But she wanted the show to be like a festival and she is glad that everybody had fun.

The amount of attention Akai was getting today created some jealousy amongst the DDT roster. During the opening introductions, Akai had to wear the Amon Tsurumi afro wig that represents the GM role. While she was speaking to the audience, Danshoku Dino tried to grab the afro. Akai stopped him and said that the afro will be up for grabs at the end of the show. Whoever wears the afro will be allowed to become the GM for one day but it must be used within one year. However when the main event ended Akai never brought up the match. Dino stepped in and reminded her about it. Fearing that everyone was about to gang up on her, Akai threw down the afro and said the next person to pick it up and wear it will win the GM rights. Everyone who was involved in the show fought over the afro. Even Hisaya Imabayashi snuck in to try and get his old role back. Akai and Makoto Oishi were the last two left standing but they knocked each other out. The afro ended up on Kazuki Hirata’s head and the referee counted to three. Hirata was declared the winner!

For the main event, each wrestler was given a fashion makeover to wear for their entrances. MAO wore a pink parka, Akito wore a poncho, KUDO wore rider gear, Shunma Katsumata was in a cap and T-shirt, Soma Takao wore a kimono while carrying and umbrella and Konosuke Takeshita was covered in a fur coat. Their regular wrestling gear were all on underneath so when the match started it was business as usual. The winning team were rewarded with a hair care set from the show’s sponsor.

Although Akai didn’t have an official match on the show, her close friend Saki-sama was there with the rest of NEO Biishiki-gun to make up for it. Their opponents T2HiJoshi introduced their secret weapon Kazuko Higuchi who came out wearing bunny ears and a pink dress. Higuchi gave a rose to Yukio Saint Laurent and confessed her love to him. He hit her and threatened to stab her with an injection. Higuchi powered out of his grip and tore her dress off in anger. Higuchi went on a rampage, clearing the ring until Yukio stopped her by sticking the injection in her forehead. Saki-sama hit Kazuko Hirata with the Two Stage Face Kick to win the match. She called her opponents truly ugly, especially the one that turned into a monster halfway through the match.

Everybody in Match #3 was given glasses of champagne to drink while they wrestled. A table was set up next to the ring so they could get their drinks refilled. They all drank glasses after every kickout then argued with each other about being drunk. Jun Kasai asked Daisuke Sasaki why he didn’t bring the DDT Extreme Title with him to the ring. DJ Nira then convinced everyone to form a human tower so Kasai could hit the Pearl Harbour Splash but the tower collapsed. Tetsuya Endo tried to do a Moonsault but overshot his target and missed. Sasaki then decided to put Daisuke Kiso in the Crossface Lock while Nira did Elbow Drops to Inoue Mic. The match got so out of control that Yukinori Matsui stepped in and declared a no contest. There was no accurate match time because Mic was distracted by Nira’s attack so DDT just assumes it lasted around 15 minutes.

Aja Kong was not impressed by all of the wrestlers impersonating her in the tribute Battle Royal. She refused to participate and spent the match doing commentary at the broadcast table. She buried the match by complaining about the colour of Makoto Oishi’s face paint being wrong and the match quality dropping when Gorgeous Matsuno entered the ring. She then watched on in disbelief at Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine reenacting the time when Kong cut off Bison Kimura’s hair. Maki Ito got into the spirit of things by scaring HARASHIMA with a loud scream. When Ito took out a banana to make fun Kong’s name, Aja had enough and entered the match with a steel can in hand! Kong cleaned out the ring but Ito stood up to her and even gave her a Headbutt! Kong shrugged it off and pinned Ito with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Oishi tried to sneak attack Kong but he got the can placed over his head and he was knocked out with the Uraken for his troubles. Dino congratulated Kong for winning and asked if he could become Aja Kong II. She called him rude and knocked him out with the Uraken.

Everybody in the opening 6 Way Match was dressed as some sort of delinquent. They all tried to intimidate each other and fought dirty when it was time to wrestle. But it wasn’t all nasty. Nobuhiro Shimatani took a time out to tell Yoshiko how much he likes her. Yukio Sakaguchi interrupted the moment by attacking Yoshino. Shimatani then got singled out and was attacked by all the others until Yoshiko pinned him with the Diving Senton.

Mizuki Watase was so jealous of everybody in their main event getting their hair and make-up done that he went and got a makeover too. All it led to was Daiki Shimomura playing with Watase’s hair while they wrestled.

DDT invaded the CyberAgent head office into Tokyo during work hours to cause some havoc among their new owners. Danshoku Dino led the squad of Super Sasadango Machine, Makoto Oishi and Reika Saiki into the building with one goal in mind. Dino wanted to kiss the CyberAgent president Susumu Fujita! Dino is convinced Fujita is gay and kissing him in public will not only prove it but also transfer important company stock over to Dino in the process. Then Dino can change the name of the company to GayBarAgent. The squad met with an employee named Mr. Saito at the entrance. It was Saito’s task to follow them around for the day and make sure the DDT wrestlers don’t cause too much trouble. He gave them a key card giving them access to Fujita’s office on the 4th floor, so they went on their way.

When they entered the office they were greeted by Sanshiro Takagi on a monitor! Takagi told them that the 4th Floor was considered a No Go Zone so they had to move up to the 5th Floor. When Dino’s team arrived they were confronted by Takagi, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno. Takagi yelled at the top of his voice that Dino’s squad were an inconvenience to the CyberAgent staff who were trying to get on with their work day. He will only allow Dino’s team to advance if they could beat his team in a match. Oishi summoned the rest of NωA and they sang a song on the office desks. DDT referees and the announce team suddenly appeared in the room and the first match of the day began. Takagi’s team attempted some wrestling moves on NωA but the office surroundings made it a bit difficult. The wrestlers found a bunch of boxes and cardboard to attack each other with. MAO pinned Ueno with a School Boy to give Dino’s team the win. Dino kissed a nearby employee and stole his access card for the 6th Floor. Shunma Katsumata told Dino to go on without them.

Dino moved on to the 6th Floor with Reika Saiki by his side. There they found Aja Kong, Gota Ihashi and DJ Nira! Kong said she was waiting around for Fujita because she wanted to go to dinner with him. Nira said he wanted to leave but Kong knocked him out. Saiki told Dino to leave Kong to her and Match #2 began. Saiki tried to knock Kong down with a Shoulder Block but Kong withstood the attack. She kicked Saiki away. Ihashi then stepped in wanting a piece of Saiki. He tried to hug her but Saiki kicked Ihashi into Dino. The staff were horrified when Dino performed the Danshoku Nightmare on Ihashi. Kong stopped him by hitting him with a steel can. Ihashi made a grave mistake when he tried to grab Saiki but grabbed Kong by her breasts instead. Kong hit him with the Uraken. Saiki then gave Ihashi the Shining Wizard and got the three count. Kong handed Dino the card for the 7th Floor.

Tiredness began to effect Dino and he struggled to walk up the stairs to the next floor. When he arrived Takagi was there again. Takagi said he brought along a tremendous teacher to stop Dino. It’s the Heisei Terrorist, Big Kazunari Murakami! Luckily for Dino, Sasadango came to the rescue. He had the perfect plan to take care of Murakami. They all sat down to look at a PowerPoint presentation titled “Consideration On Management Of Street Wrestling In The Office”. Sasadango said the wrestling matches were too noisy and negatively effecting staff productivity. This could lead to bankruptcy! Sasadango and Murakami agreed to fight in a Noise Pervention Death Match. They would be penalised for making noise during the match. Whoever gets penalised three times would be the loser. Murakami put Sasadango in an Achilles Tendon Lock. Sasadango yelped in pain so 1 point was taken from him. Murakami then put Sasadango in a Sleeper Hold. Sasadango found some pepper and placed it up to Murakami’s nose to make him sneeze. 1-1. Murakami found an umbrella and used it to put Sasadango in a Crossface. Sasadango dragged himself over to a female employee’s desk and grabbed her shoes. He placed one of the shoes up to Murakami’s nose and he started to sniff it. Murakami was so excited he shouted “The Best!” and lost his 2nd point. Sasadango then lost his 2nd point when he found a bookshelf with Slam Dunk manga in it and he excitedly read a page out loud. Murakami won the match when he poured a bucket of water from a restroom over Sasadango, making him scream in agony. Dino feared that his mission was over but Sasadango told Murakami that this match was a test and he passed. He offered Murakami a job in GayBarAgent with an annual salary of 6.8 million yen along with private theatre screenings. Murakami wasn’t sure. Dino then gave him the pair of women’s shoes. Murakami said he doesn’t care about money but he’ll take the shoes. He then gave Dino the card for the 8th Floor.

Takagi was waiting for Dino again on the 8th floor. This time he had a different plan in mind. Dino couldn’t achieve his mission on brute force alone. He’ll have to use his smarts too. Match #4 will be a quiz! Saiki reappeared and with her was BASARA’s wrestling lawyer, Gouma Ryu. They were up for the challenge. Their opponents were Saki Akai & Miyu Yamashita. To put it mildly the quiz went bad for Takagi’s team. Akai & Yamashita tried to warm themselves up mentally by saying the days of the week in English but struggled when they got to Wednesday. They proceeded to not get a single question right while Dino’s team were correct with every answer. Even when the last question was rigged to give Takagi’s team more points for a correct answer than the entirety of Dino’s team score they couldn’t pull it off. With the quiz won, Dino went up to the 9th Floor.

There was still no sign of President Fujita. Instead on the 9th floor there was Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo lazing around on a sofa. Sasaki had a card key and he was willing to sell it to Dino. Before Dino could answer, the NωA returned and challenged DAMNATION to a match. Sasaki & Endo lifted up the couch and ran over Oishi & MAO with it. They then fought into the kitchen where Sasaki pushed MAO into the fridge. Back in the office Endo climbed on top of a desk and hit the Shooting Star Press on both NωA wrestlers for the win. Sasaki told Dino afterwards that he was hired for 30,000 yen. Dino collected 43,000 yen from the employees around the office and offered it for the key card. Sasaki refused. Dino then got another 32,000 yen from Mr. Saito and this time Sasaki accepted the deal.

Dino was hoping to relax on the 10th Floor but he came across Kazusada Higuchi & Hoshitango doing sumo training. They challenged Dino to a Sumo Match. Ken Ohka appeared and accepted the challenge on Dino’s behalf. When he couldn’t win, he and Dino then asked for a normal wrestling match because they are all pro wrestlers. The sumo wrestlers put them in Argentine Backbreakers but Dino escaped and gave Higuchi the Lip Lock. He then hit the Danshoku Driver to win. However none of the sumo wrestlers had a key card. The employees in the room told Dino that President Fujita was down on the 3rd Floor. So down he went.

The doors to the 3rd Floor were locked so Dino, Sasadango & Oishi went in search of an employee with the key card. He found Fujita’s secretary and noticed his key card had the word “President” written on it. He used it to open the door and inside was an office with President Fujita sitting right there. Finally! Dino approached Fujita and told him it was time for CyberAgeny to become GayBarAgent! But before he could put his plan in motion, Mr. Saito stopped Dino! Saito confessed that he was a spy for Fujita all this time. Then Takagi appeared out of nowhere with a cylinder filled with sleeping gas. He sprayed it at Dino and his squad making them all fall asleep. Takagi and Fujita then escaped the office.

A while later Dino woke up and discovered his crew were now on the 13th Floor. There with them were Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Keisuke Ishii. Takeshita told Dino they were on his side. With new allies, Dino went back on the search for Fujita. They came across Yukio Sakaguchi & Tanomusaku Toba who refused to let them pass. Takeshita & Akito challenged them to a fight around the office. ALL OUT came out victorious then quickly apologised to the staff for fighting on all of their desks. Sakaguchi gave Dino the 12th Floor key card as a Christmas gift.

Dino found Sasadango on the 12th floor but Sasadango was frightened. Why? Because Jun Kasai was there in a business suit holding a barbed wire baseball bat! Kasai approached them but was cut off by Isami Kodaka. Kodaka warned him to leave but Kasai pulled out the 11th Floor key card. He’ll put it on the line in a Hardcore Match! Kasai and Kodaka created chaos by hitting each other with computer keyboards and putting each other through tables. Kodaka even gave Kasai a brainbuster on one of the office desks that would not break under them. The fight took so much out of both that neither could get up so it ended as a Double KO. Kodaka used the last of his strength to give Kasai’s key card to Dino.

The work day was nearing its end and Dino was nearing his breaking point. But there was a light at the end of the tunnel on the 11th Floor. Dino arrived to meet Takagi one more time. Takagi saved his best and strongest defenders to last. Out walked Jiro Kuroshio & Keiji Muto! Takagi said with the power of pro wrestling they will never be defeated! Dino was backed up by Takeshita & Ishii for the final battle on the open office floor. Takeshita and Kuroshio went at each other knowing that they will soon face off in the D-King Grand Prix. Takagi held Dino for Muto so he could do the Shining Wizard. But Dino moved out of the way and Takagi took the blow! Dino went for the Lip Lock on Muto but Muto pulled Kuroshio into harm’s way. That didn’t work and Dino got Muto with a second Lip Lock. Takeshita hit Takagi with a Knee Strike then served him up to Dino for the True Danshoku Driver. 1…2…3! Dino vanquished the last of his enemies and could now finally get his hands on President Fujita. Muto didn’t want to let Dino go but everyone else held him back.

Dino made the long journey back down to the 3rd Floor so he could confront President Fujita. He entered the room but the only person there was Mr. Saito. Dino was too late. President Fujita had already left. Dino listened to Saito laughing at his failure but took it in his stride. Dino knows that his wrestling style draws many criticisms but it is his duty as a gay wrestler to laugh it off and be himself. Today’s mission wasn’t a failure because it attracted a large audience on AbemaTV, giving DDT and their style of pro wrestling so much attention. Even Takagi agreed. Dino couldn’t take away Fujita’s lips, but he did take everyone’s hearts in the audience. Mr. Saito said he was looking forward to DDT’s next mission. The broadcast ended with a title: “Finish The Lips Of Susumu Fujita Again! The Great Battle Of Shinjuku!”

DDT “DDT VS CYBERAGENT STREET WRESTLING -MASOCHISTIC DEATH GAME-”, 21/12/2017
Tokyo CyberAgent Head Office

1. Sanshiro Takagi, Danshoku Dino, Super Sasadango Machine, Keiji Muto, Jun Kasai, X

Why is DDT holding a Street Wrestling match inside CyberAgent’s Headquarters? Because Danshoku Dino wants to put the CyberAgent president in a Lip Lock. Dino believes doing so will somehow transfer all of the CyberAgent stock to him without the need for a shareholders meeting. Dino will then increase the number of employee holidays and change the company name to GayBarAgent. Sanshiro Takagi & Jun Kasai are offering to put a stop to Dino’s scheme, otherwise DDT would risk getting expelled from CyberAgent. They successfully attacked Dino & Sasadango at the event announcement, hitting Dino’s backside with a barbed wire baseball bat and putting Sasadango through a table. One more thing, Takagi has invited someone else to show up at the match. Keiji Muto! Dino warned that he too will invite someone to even the odds.

So while no match has been officially announced yet it’s looking like it will be Takagi, Kasai and Muto versus Dino, Sasadango and a mystery wrestler.
