DDT’s biggest rivalry was back in force for the main event of the D-King Grand Prix Day 2. Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo faced off in the rematch to last year’s “RYOGOKU PETER PAN” main event. Takeshita already got off to a bad start after losing his first block match while Endo won his first bout. Neither man got the spoils as the match went to a 30 minute time limit. It is a result both are familiar with when it comes to their singles matches. Endo left the ring after a brief standoff. Takeshita apologised to the fans for failing to beat Endo for them. He then said their battle is not over.

Daisuke Sasaki slumps even further into the depths with his second Grand Prix loss in a row. Yukio Sakaguchi hit him with the Right Knee Of God then put him down with the Cobra Clutch. The win places Sakaguchi on top of Block B for the early going. Sakaguchi’s next goal is to survive against Shuji Ishikawa. Get past him and it will be clear sailing from there. Sasaki is now getting desperate. His current plan for his next opponent Kazusada Higuchi is to hit him with a beer bottle.

The Grand Prix is off to a beautiful start thanks to Jiro Kuroshio. His win over Masahiro Takanashi means he currently sits on top of Block A. Once again his tricky style caught his opponent off guard for an unexpected pinfall. He promises to show HARASHIMA a Handsome World when their match happens next. Takanashi is 0 for 2. He promises to win his 4 remaining matches.

Mike Bailey scraped by with a win against Akito. Speedball’s legs were targeted throughout the match and he was in real danger of losing to the Scorpion Lock. But somehow Bailey fought so hard to block the move he rolled himself on top of Akito to pin him. Bailey said he has to keep winning so he can catch up with Ishikawa. He also thinks the middle portion of the tournament will determine where he finishes. It won’t be easy but he needs to imagine he can win it all. Akito meanwhile is worried that his usual losing pattern is surfacing again. But he can’t focus on that because tomorrow’s opponent is Ishikawa!

What is the best way to take on the Somato? Joey Ryan unsprisingly thought it was with his dong. He tried his own version of the move on HARASHIMA, hitting him crotch first in the face. It didn’t work. HARASHIMA then took control and hit the proper Somato, putting Ryan down for the count. This was HARASHIMA’s first match with Ryan and he was left puzzled by the experience. When Ryan regained his whereabouts during the backstage interview he described HARASHIMA as a “very tough bastard” who survived Ryan’s many traps. Ryan promises to set up more traps for his next opponent Takeshita. He also hopes the fans shower him with paper tape before the match. He likes it when they do that.

Kazusada Higuchi scored his first points with a win over Soma Takao. He countered the Gin And Tonic into a Power Bomb. From there he hit a Lariat and the Doctor Bomb for the three count. This was Soma’s first match in the Grand Prix and a defeat is not a good start. His next opponent is Mike Bailey and Soma is worried about facing him with the momentum he has.

Keisuke Ishii has a new finishing move called the Carolina Reaper. The move is a Modified Facelock where he traps one arm in a Chicken Wing and the other gets hooked behind his leg. He used it to submit Kouki Iwasaki in the 4 Way Match. Elsewhere in the match Toru Owashichallenged Naomi Yoshimura to try and beat him in their exchanges.

To celebrate the new year in Osaka, Danshoku Dino told the audience a dancing star from Tokyo has come over to cheer everyone up with his performance. He was talking about Kazuki Hirata. Normally whenever Hirata tries to dance during his entrance he gets interrupted so Dino ordered Yuki Ueno to help him stop anyone from laying a finger on Hirata while he dances. They succeeded although Dino did take a Plancha from MAO during the performance. However Hirata got angry and yelled at everyone to give the audience an exciting match. As it went on Ueno asked Hirata to tag him in so he could show off cool moves to his hometown crowd. Dino later got too excited and gave Ueno the Lip Lock even though they were on the same team. That allowed NωA and Veda Scott to isolate Hirata and beat him. When the match was over Hirata asked the audience if they enjoyed it. They gave him a positive applause.

Yukinori Matsui announced he will produce a wrestling show inside Osaka Edison Arena #2 on 27th May. He called upon the DDT wrestlers to help him make it a lively show.

*Diego becomes the 1,278th champion.
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when HARASHIMA pinned Sasaki with the Somato (18:47).
*V5 for HarashiMarufuji.
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Colt Cabana with the Roll Through German Suplex (22:23).
*V10 for Konosuke Takeshita.

On Christmas Eve Konosuke Takeshita was given a tricky challenger for his final KO-D Openweignt Title defence of 2017. Colt Cabana made a brief visit to DDT back in February but impressed the company enough to be granted a championship match for his return. Cabana played mind games early on by loosening up leaving the ring to play around with a photographer, loosening a turnbuckle pad and calling for the audience to be quiet so he could yell in Takeshita’s face. Takeshita kicked out of the Superman Dive clutch that Cabana used to win his other DDT matches. The finish came when Cabana missed a Moonsault from the top rope. Takeshita grabbed Cabana from behind and pushed him into the loose turnbuckle. Cabana tried to hang on to the turnbuckle but it slipped from his hands. Takeshita then rolled him into the German Suplex to get the three count. After the match the two thanked each other. Cabana said he hopes to win the title next time DDT gives him a shot but he knows that won’t happen until he is in his fifties.

Before the show was over Takeshita asked Producer Danshoku Dino a few questions about the D-King Grand Prix next month. The prize is a KO-D Title shot at “JUDGEMENT 2018” in Sumo Hall on 25th March. Since Takeshita will be the champion for the entire tournament he wants to know what he gets if he wins. Does he nominate his challenger? Dino said yes but the grand prize is not just about a title match. Dino’s vision for the Grand Prix is the winner will be cast in DDT’s leading role for all of 2018. That’s why there are so many wrestlers entering the tournament aiming to take Takeshita down.

HarashiMarufuji survived a close call against DAMNATION to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles. A Thrust Kick from Naomichi Marufuji caught HARASHIMA by mistake. Daisuke Sasaki capitalised with a Hurricanrana but only got a nearfall out of it. Sasaki went for La Mistica Cross Facelock but HARASHIMA did his best to resist it. The struggle lasted long enough for Marufuji to get back in and this time find his target with another Thrust Kick. He then got rid of Tetsuya Endo with the Shiranui. Sasaki still showed signs of life by kicking out of a High Kick/Thrust Kick combo but HARASHIMA put him down for good with the Somato. Backstage Marufuji told HARASHIMA afterwards he will be at Sumo Hall in March for “JUDGEMENT 2018”. He will cheer for HARASHIMA to win the D-King Grand Prix. Sasaki’s post-match comments were that he never believed in God until now. After the match he just had he feels like he was called up to Heaven. He then snapped out of this realisation and shouted at everyone.

For Diego’s last match in DDT for now, he got to pick up the win. The final moments in the 6-Man Tag bout came down to him and Rekka. Diego got the better of Rekka with the V.H.S. Afterwards the entire roster filled the ring to say goodbye to Diego. Akito asked him not to cry because he wanted him to leave DDT with a smile. He said everyone was suspicious of who Diego was when he came to Japan five years ago but since then he has grown into a fine pro wrestler with plenty of cheering fans. Akito wants Diego to wrestle forever no matter where he goes. Then maybe someday Akito will go to Chile to wrestle him. Diego said after five years in Japan he made loads of friends and he thanks all of them for taking care of him.

During the goodbyes the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion, Kazuko Hirata approached Diego to get a handshake. Diego instead gave Hirata the V.H.S and pinned him. Diego is now going back to Chile with the Iron Man Title!

Makoto Oishi started celebrating Christmas early by drinking champagne before the NωA’s vital match against Danshoku Dino and his cronies. It didn’t matter to Oishi that the bottle had a skull and bones warning on it. That is until a video of Dino looking for the bottle played on the screen. It turns out the drink was actually a laxative! Whoever drinks it gets cramps for 10 minutes then their stomach explodes. Dino and his team’s entrance took 2 minutes to complete so by the time the match began Oishi had 8 minutes to wrestle and then find a toilet. It didn’t help that Dino’s team all wasted time and targeted Oishi’s stomach throughout the match. Oh and Super Sasadango Machine was dressed as Santa Claus the whole time. When Oishi finally tagged out he fled ringside in search of the nearest restroom. He heroically returned with toilet roll and directed the rest of NωA to fight back. Unfortunately a Double Dropkick from Shunma Katsumata & MAO missed Antonio Honda and hit Oishi in the stomach instead. Time slowed down, the room went dark and “Ave Maria” played over the speakers. The worst had happened. Oishi waved to the audience and tried to leave but no one would let him. However this turned out to be an advantage because the bad smell coming from Oishi repulsed everyone into unconsciousness. Oishi then put Honda in a Triangle Choke (this is still happening in slow motion) to make him tap out from the smell. Dino wouldn’t accept the result and challenged NωA to another high stakes match on 3rd January. If NωA loses then their idol group must stay together. This time Dino has found two high class warriors who hate idols to team with him. It’s the Brahman Brothers!

Shuten-dōji all wore Santa outfits for their match. Tomomitsu Matsunaga didn’t like Saki Akai’s outfit and said she didn’t look cute at all in it.

T2HiJoshi, the “female relatives” of T2Hide were brought in to challenge Tokyo Joshi Pro mainly so they could beat Miyu Yamashita and take the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Yuka Sakazaki embarrassed Margaret★Owashi by pulling down her dress. Yuna Manase grabbed Francoise☆Takagi by the hair for a Snapmare but accidentally pulled the wig off. Kazuko Hirata made everyone wear Hirata GO! glasses for a dance but was pinned by Yamashita. After the match Hirata admitted Yamashita was superior and asked for a handshake. It was a ruse and Hirata gave Yamashita a Stunner to win the Iron Man Title. He later lost it to Diego.

At intermission both teams held separate meet and greet for fans next to each other. According to DDT both of them were sold out.

When Keisuke Okuda was done stretching Daiki Shimomura with the Manjigatame to win the opening match, he swiftly kicked him on the ground afterwards and gave him the middle finger. Shigehiro Irie ignored Okuda’s behaviour and bowed to the audience. This is because Irie will be taking another overseas excursion in January and will be gone from DDT for a while.

Gota Ihashi thought he had the size to stand up to Mad Paulie. He didn’t. Paulie hammered him with blows and pinned him with the Reverse Splash.

Earlier in the year, Saki Akai won a match that gave her the power to be DDT General Manager for one day. Since then nothing had come from it but today Akai finally announced her plan. She is using the power to run a self-produce show in Shinjuku FACE on 14th March. Hisaya Imabayashi handed over his old Amon Tsumuri afro which in this situation is the symbol of the old GM role in DDT. Akai begrudgingly wore it to pose for photos then threw it away.

At the end of the show a bunch of wrestlers commented on the year they had in DDT. HARASHIMA only won one championship this year. However he starts 2018 with the KO-D Tag Titles so he is already on track to make his 2018 better than his 2017. Marufuji said his time in DDT was normal and good. He is disappointed that HarashiMarufuji did not win the Tokyo Sports Best Tag Team Award. Winning that award will be his DDT goal in 2018. Cabana wanted to say something but his microphone was cut off. KUDO wants to welcome the new year with a successful KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. Nobuhiro Shimatani interrupted Sanshiro Takagi to say he will win every tournament and championship next year. Kazuki Hirata kicked Shimatani away and called him annoying. Hirata said he wants 2018 to be the year of Hirata. He was then stomped on by everybody else. Takagi finally got to speak and reflected on DDT’s shows in Saitama Super Arena and Sumo Hall. He then brought up their sale to CyberAgent. But there were no major changes in December. He promised DDT will walk with the fans all over the next year. Takeshita gave the final word. DDT won’t change even under new ownership. They will continue to entertain the fans as much as possible and he will be the champion as they do so.

DDT and Ring☆Dream were together again to run an outdoor show at the Tokyo Toshimaen theme park.

Match #6 went away from the ring as the wrestlers all wanted to go on some rides while they fought each other. The first ride they found wasn’t active. The second one they found was and they punched each other while enjoying the ride.

DJ Nira interfered in Match #5 to save Yoshihiko from an NωA Super Power Bomb. He hit Makoto Oishi with the Rocket Punch allowing Danshoku Dino & Ken Ohka to set up the finish.

Toru Owashi and Kazuki Hirata were the last two wrestlers in the Battle Royal. After trading Cradles back and forth both of them ended up pinning each other at the same time. That meant was no official winner of the match. However both Owashi and Hirata complained over the result. Both of them desperately wanted to win so they could be transformed into a girl for the Ring☆Dream game. The game’s producer felt for them both and decided that Owashi and Hirata will get their own characters after all.

6. HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & TAKA Michinoku defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Michinoku submitted Sasaki with the Just Facelock (15:27).
7. ALL OUT Vs Shuten-dōji!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi when Akito pinned Takanashi with the Hanamasa (13:05).

There are only a few more shows left for the entire ALL OUT unit to be together. Their goal is to keep the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles until Diego leaves Japan. Their defence against Shuten-dōji in Hakata next week is their last threat to their plan.

Daisuke Sasaki wanted TAKA Michinoku’s attention so he got it. Michinoku countered Sasaki’s Hurricanrana into the Just Facelock to make him tap out. Afterwards Sasaki called to him saying he is the one he wants. Sasaki wants to give TAKA an Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match. TAKA accepted but since he just beat Sasaki that should mean he picks the date and the place. It will take place at the K-DOJO Shin-Kiba 1st RING show on 17th December. Sasaki gladly agreed. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to point out that Ken Ohka is supposed to get the next title shot on 20th December but nobody cared. TAKA said his match was made first and he won’t hear otherwise. In the backstage interview Sasaki said how much he respects TAKA and talked about the previous times they wrestled together from the Italian Four Horsemen to the Best Of The Super Juniors. Sasaki hopes beating TAKA Michinoku will send him on track towards the WWE. Reaching America is the final life goal for Daisuke Sasaki.

Diego was so happy to have a match with Dick Togo today and called it the most important match in his pro wrestling life. He thanked Togo because his life has changed so much since they first met each other five years ago. Togo said back then Diego was a wrestling otaku but today he has become a fine wrestler. Togo wants Diego to take all that he has learned in Japan and teach it to his friends and juniors in Chile. Diego can changes their lives just as Togo changed his.

Keisuke Okuda got into a fight with both Shigehiro Irie and Kazusada Higuchi after their match.

Kazuki Hirata had Sanshiro Takagi and Toru Owashi as his cornermen for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match. However Takagi & Owashi wanted Miyu Yamashita to win so they helped her out at certain times like pushing the rope towards her when she was put in a submission hold. Yamashita herself started to gain control of the match and had Hirata in position to take the Crash Rabbit Heat. Knowing he was about to be defeated, Hirata called for Nobuhiro Shimatani to come down and hand him something. It was a letter Hirata had written and he wanted to read it before he lost. In the letter Hirata confessed that he is dying. He wanted to tell Yamashita something before he passes. He remembered helping to set up the first ever Toyko Joshi Pro show. At the time he didn’t see what the big deal was about the project and was in a rotten mood having to spend his day working at the event. That all changed when he saw Miyu Yamashita’s debut match where she danced during her entrance. Hirata had one request and that is to dance with Yamashita to her “Genghis Khan” theme tune. Yamashita agreed and they danced together. Hirata afterwards asked for a handshake but it was a trick and he struck Yamashita. She got so mad she kicked the hell out of Hirata and then pinned him with the Crash Rabbit Heat to defend the Iron Man Title. After the match Takagi gave Yamashita the Stunner but she kicked out. Owashi gave her La Magistral Cradle but she kicked out again. Takagi challenged Yamashita to defend the title on 24th December. The Tokyo Joshi GM Tetsuya Koda came out and told Takagi that Yamashita should be preparing for her Korakuen Hall main event match on 4th January. She cannot risk getting injured by wrestling men. Takagi pointed out that she can still wrestle other women so he will contact his relative Francoise☆Takagi, Owashi’s relative Margaret☆Owashi and Hirata’s relative Kazuko Hirata to come over. Tokyo Joshi will soon compete against T2Joshi! Yamashita accepted the challenge.

Kouki Iwasaki showed shades of envy towards Yuki Ueno when Ueno was introduced as a Differ Cup winner. He attacked Ueno and threw a table at him away from ringside. Ueno fought back and set Iwasaki up to be pinned by Kota Umeda. He hit a Missile Dropkick then Umeda did the Umeda Driver.

Danshoku Dino, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda formed the HωA (Homo Wrestling Idol) to take on the NωA. They wore modified NωA shirts and also sang “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” which made all of NωA mad. NωA got their revenge by forcing Dino to do the Danshoku Nightmare VR to Owashi. They then gave Honda the Triple Miracle Ecstasy to win the match.

In a preview of the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title Match on 10th December, ALL OUT beat Shuten-dōji. The Shuten-dōji line-up here was different from the one challenging for the titles. Kota Umeda was wrestling instead of Masahiro Takanashi. Umeda was the weak link today and he was pinned by Konosuke Takeshita after a Knee Strike, a Lariat and the Surprise Rose.

Mike Bailey’s current tour of Japan is nearing its end. He confirmed he will be back in January and he hopes to team with MAO more when he returns. MAO will be feeling upset in December because Diego and Bailey are leaving Japan and Dai Suzuki is retiring. All of his friends are going away.

Danshoku Dino complained about Kazuki Hirata’s dancing. Hirata is supposed to be fighting Miyu Yamashita from Tokyo Joshi Pro for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title next month and she is a better dancer than he is. Hirata was driven to prove Dino wrong and went on to pin Makoto Oishi with the Viagra Driver. He promised to regain the Iron Man Title while carrying all of the feelings of DDT fans around the world.

Gorgeous Matsuno sang a song called “Your Ballad” to close out the show.

DDT was in Ken Ohka’s hometown of Toyama and DAMNATION did not like it one bit. Daisuke Sasaki wanted to have another bet with Ohka in order to wrestle in the main event. Ohka said Sasaki had already taken his money and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He has nothing left. Sasaki saw that Ohka’s 70 year old father was in the audience and he demanded the father put his own deposit book on the line! Ohka accepted the challenge but his team was then ambushed by DAMNATION. Ohka, HARASHIMA & Soma Takao eventually isolated Mad Paulie in the ring and overwhelmed him with their signature moves until HARASHIMA got the pin with the Somato. HARASHIMA called Ohka the “Hero Of Toyama” after the match. Ohka then told his life story to the audience. He grew up as a bad child, kind of like Sasaki. When he lost the Independent Jr. Title to Sasaki he felt shame whenever he came back to Toyama. But not matter how embarrassed he gets, he has a dream and even at 40 years old he trusts himself to achieve it.

Masahiro Takanashi said that Shuten-dōji are not fighting ALL OUT to create happy memories for Diego before he leaves Japan. ALL OUT will be finished when Shuten-dōji wins the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from them.

Ken Ohka’s dad got involved in the opening match. Kazuki Hirata came out complaining that his entrance gown and HIRATA GO! glasses went missing. Ohka’s dad came out wearing them while dancing to Hirata’s music. Sanshiro Takagi said his dancing is better than Hirata’s.
