4. Pro Wrestling Round System Match ~Super Dragon Vs Self-Proclaimed Gatekeeper Of DDT~: Tatsuhito Takaiwa defeated Gorgeous Matsuno with the Death Valley Driver (R4 0:53). (Special Ring Girl: Karin Tachibana)
5. YaroZ Specialty! Boob Flag Death Match: Yuna Manase defeated Antonio Honda and Ryuichi Sekine when Manase picked up the flag (11:09).
6. YaroZ Vs Mote Mote Army All Out Fight!: Kazusada Higuchi, Toru Owashi & SAGAT defeated Akito, Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno when Higuchi pinned Ueno with the YaroZ Bomber (11:03).

The stories from this show were similar to the ones from previous few YaroZ events. The Mote Mote Army kidnapped the guest idol Karin Tachibana and held her hostage during the main event. The YaroZ team led by Kazusada Higuchi came to the rescue and defeated their enemy to rescue her. The new bit this time involved Makoto Oishi refusing to let go of Tachibana. This led to his wife Misaki Ohata to come out and give him a German Suplex. She ordered Oishi to free Tachibana then attached a leash to him as punishment. The YaroZ invited Tachibana to hang out with them after the show but she turned them down. She has to go shoot a video in Hawaii. Also Akito is more her type. Suddenly Nonoko ran down to the ring. If the YaroZ are looking for a pretty girl to be with, she’s available. None of them gave her a response.

Yuna Manase played a vital role in the Boob Flag Death Match. She had to stand in the corner with a mini flag sticking out of her chest while Antonio Honda and Ryuichi Sekine fought over who could pull it out first. Honda blinded Sekine with the Shining Gongitsune but couldn’t build up the courage to reach towards Manase’s chest. Sekine meanwhile couldn’t see and he walked into Yuki Iino. He grabbed Iino’s chest thinking it was Manase. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi grabbed the flag from Manase and handed it to Honda but the referee was too distracted to see it. Manase gave a Lariat to both Honda and Sekine. When picked up the flag from the mat, the referee saw it and declared Manase the winner.

Karin Tachibana did the other usual role for idols in YaroZ shows and that’s being the ring girl for the rounds match. She was fully dressed at the start and stripped off an item of clothing after every round. All the wrestlers encouraged the match to go as long as possible but Gorgeous Matsuno was just getting destroyed by Tatsuhito Takaiwa. Referee Yukinori Matsui tried everything he could to keep the match going so Tachibana’s striptease could continue. But when Takaiawa hit the Death Valley Driver, the other referee Yuya Okada ran in and counted three. Matsui was so angry that he wrestled Okada after the match. Tachibana stopped the madness by stripping down to her swimsuit. That was when the Mote Mote Army showed up and kidnapped her. The YaroZ wanted to rescue Tachibana straight away but they all couldn’t move because of their erections from the striptease.

Yumehito Imanari used his referee status to get very close to the action between Yuna Manase and Himeka Arita. He was more interested in getting pervy angles on their wrestling holds rather than calling the match. Manase and Arita got sick of his behaviour and both attacked him. Nonoko also showed up to join in and the match was called off. Nonoko had another reason for showing up today. She wanted to know why Imanari was messing around in DDT instead of achieving his dream of becoming a movie director. Imanari admitted he gave that dream up long ago because he was chasing deadlines every day. Nonoko asked Imanari what he has learned from wrestling. He should know that wrestling matches only end when you give up. Nonoko called Imanari talented with many people supporting him including herself, Manase and Arita. Imanari then had a brainflash. He can make a Charlie’s Angels kind of movie with the three women in front of him! Feeling like himself again, Imanari got the audience to cheer “3, 2, 1, Oppai Oppai!” That caused the women to attack him again.

The Fundoshi match immediately turned into a ringside brawl where both teams were counted out. Everyone agreed to restart the bout as a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match but they needed a weapon. They decided on using plates of curry because of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s connection to India. Hiroshi accidentally hit Yuki Iino in the face with the curry. Abdullah Kobayashi hit the Bakachinga Elbow on Iino. Sanshiro Takagi then sat on Iino’s face to pin him.

There were plenty of cheers for Gota Ihashi and nothing but boos for Konosuke Takeshita in the opener. That’s what Takeshita gets for being an ikemen wrestler at a YaroZ show. Takeshita rolled away from a Moonsault and gave Ihashi a Brainbuster. He then placed his feet on the ropes for leverage while pinning Ihashi to win the match.


D-King Grand Prix 2019 Schedule… In 2018

November 13, 2018

The D-Ou Grand Prix is back for a second go around. The first tournament held in January earlier this year was a successful concept for DDT. Even though the upcoming edition is labelled as the 2019 tournament, the first show will take place on 30th November and the rest takes place during December 2018. The reason for this is the winner of the D-Ou GP will get a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “JUDGEMENT 2019” on 17th February. If the tournament was to be held in January like the first one then there wouldn’t be much time left to set up and promote the Sumo Hall show coming out of it. The same format of two groups containing seven wrestlers each is being kept. Each block match has a 30 minute time limit, winners get 2 points and draws of any kind are worth 1 point. The final between the two block winners will have no time limit. In the case of a tie for 1st place in one of the blocks then the direct confrontation rule will be used. The results of the group match(es) between the tied wrestlers determines who advances to the final. If that also ends in a tie then a tiebreaker match will be held on the 30th December show before the final takes place.

2. Akito & Kota Umeda defeated Keisuke Okuda & Mizuki Watase when Akito submitted Watase with the Scorpion Lock (10:39).
3. Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 5: Jun Kasai defeated Yuki Iino with the Pearl Harbor Splash (11:31).
4. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA & Toru Owashi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when HARASHIMA pinned Katsumata with the Somato (11:22).
5. Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & MAO defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Laphroaig (16:25).
6. Recollect The Memories Of Danshoku Dieno! Niigata Specialty! The Compliance Presents Special Unit Confrontation!: Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda defeated Super Sasadango Machine & Makoto Oishi when Honda pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop (13:07) (Special Witness: Danshoku Dieno).

Even though today’s show was in Super Sasadango Machine’s hometown of Niigata, the focus was on Danshoku Dieno trying to get his memory back. Wearing jeans and a grey jumper, Dieno was encouraged by the other wrestlers to go kiss an audience member. Dieno instead just gave the man a friendly hug. He watched the main event and mentioned the atmosphere surrounding it felt familiar. However the match wasn’t exciting enough to keep his attention and DJ Nira came out to tell the others he fell asleep. The Compliance all tried to make the match more exciting but Nira decided to take matters into his own hands and he threw Dieno into the ring. Dieno got his head shoved into Makoto Oishi’s backside in a bid to wake him up. Dieno pointed at the wrestlers and shouted “You!” but denied he was Dieno when asked if he regained his memories. Oishi gave Dieno a Stunner and that seemed to finally work. Dieno took off his clothes revealing his Danshoku gear underneath and he gave Oishi the Danshoku Driver. Antonio Honda then pinned Oishi with the Diving Fist Drop.

Honda & Kazusada Higuchi were rewarded with bags of rice from the local sponsor for winning the main event. Everybody welcomed Dieno back. Oishi called himself the second generation of Danshoku Dieno but really Dieno is the one and only. Oishi wanted to give a bag of rice over to Dieno but somehow he ended up dropping it onto Dieno’s head, knocking him out! When Dieno came to he asked where he was and who he was? He’s lost his memory again! Akito entered the ring concerned about Dieno because they are supposed to have a big match together at Korakuen Hall on 25th November. Akito can’t get the match he wants if Dieno doesn’t remember anything. Sasadango promised him Dieno’s amnesia will be cured by the time the match happens.

Masahiro Takanashi unveiled a new pinning move and successfully used it to beat Daisuke Sasaki. The Laphroaig is set up like a Paradise Lock but instead of rolling the opponent over, Takanashi instead spins himself around and bridges himself over the opponent to pin them while they are still twisted like a knot. The move is named after a scotch whisky. Takanashi made fun of Sasaki over the result. Sasaki’s been calling him the weakest link of Shuten-dōji so how must he feel about losing to him today? How will he feel when the weakest link beats him again to win the KO-D Openweight Title?

HARASHIMA added his concerns over Dieno’s situation and gave his best wishes for Dieno to get his memory back.

6. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Maki Ito (#3) (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita (#13)
7. DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Akito (#2) Vs Danshoku Dieno (#7)
8. KO-D Openweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#5) (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi (#1)

This is the grand result of the Dramatic General Election. We have Masahiro Takanashi getting the KO-D Openweight Title shot against the new champion Daisuke Sasaki for being the most popular wrestler in DDT. Akito faces the previous champion Danshoku Dieno who may still be suffering from drastic memory loss when the match takes place. Maki Ito defends the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against the man who was screwed out of the title last July Konosuke Takeshita. MAO gets to continue his crazy path by taking on one of the craziest of them all Jun Kasai. DISASTER BOX are the latest force in DDT to step up to STRONG HEARTS when HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata face CIMA & El Lindaman. Maybe Hirata’s persona can distract CIMA when they fight each other. Maybe bring back some awkward past acquaintances.
