She should go back to normal on the show after this but who knows with her. Misao might end up finding another way to change her gimmick again. Shoko Nakajima helped bring Daredasore to life so it’s only fitting for her to say goodbye.

The next challenge Saki Akai will face in the Okibariyasu series is Miranda Gordy, the daughter of Terry Gordy! Miranda began wrestling in the American indies last year and is touring Japan in February as part of Tokyo Championship Wrestling. She sent a video to the DDT office explaining that she and Akai share something in common. Akai’s dad was a great boxer and Gordy’s dad was a great wrestler. But Miranda thinks she is a better wrestler than Akai and will crush her in the ring to prove it. Akai understands it is important to be proud of her father’s blood but they will be fighting each other regardless of their second generation status. Akai has been nicknamed “The Rocky Of Naniwa II” because of her family connection but when she finishes the series, she wants to have earned a new nickname for herself.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) defeated Chihiro Hashimoto & Yuki Iino when Yoshimura pinned Iino with the Shonenba (11:27).

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka defeated HARASHIMA (c) with the Sliding D (20:18).
*HARASHIMA fails in V2. Masato Tanaka becomes the 74th KO-D Openweight Champion!

There is now no doubt about it, Masato Tanaka is the strongest in DDT! He went through the D-Ou Grand Prix undefeated and today wiped out the only blight in his record from that tournament to become the new KO-D Openweight Champion! It wasn’t easy though. HARASHIMA threw everything he had against Tanaka from the Somato to the Firebird Splash. The ace up Tanaka’s sleeve as always was the Sliding D. He used it to great effect, finding even the smallest of openings to use the move. The climax of the match saw HARASHIMA go for the Swan Dive Somato. Tanaka avoided the move and popped his opponent with the Sliding D, then hit the finisher two more times from behind and from the front to finish him off.

When the KO-D Title was wrapped around Tanaka’s waist, he told HARASHIMA he does not know how many defences he will last but he is looking forward to finding out. Hisaya Imabayashi informed Tanaka that his first defence is against MAO on 23rd February. Suddenly Pokotan came down but the mascot costume was only partially completed. Imabayashi pulled Pokotan’s head off to reveal it was MAO in disguise! MAO told Tanaka “Just bring it, bitch!” He tried to attack Tanaka with a Hurricanrana but Tanaka countered it into a Power Bomb. Tanaka warned MAO that there is a lot of things to be done between themselves and HARASHIMA before the next title match. Tanaka promised he will wear the KO-D Title with pride in any ring he climbs into while he is champion.

Tension between Yuki Iino & Chihiro Hashimoto was so bad that the team couldn’t even decided whose entrance music to use, so the sound guy had to mash their songs together. They both went for the Haka Elbow early on Yuki Ueno but got in each other’s way. The champions Nautilus took control until Hashimoto got the better of Ueno, leaving Iino facing off with Naomi Yoshimura. Unfortunately for the challengers, Yoshimura wore down Iino with the Drill-A-Hole Piledriver and ultimately won with the Shonenba. Ueno thanked Iino & Hashimoto for the match then said Nautilus’ goal is to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles at Saitama Super Arena this summer.

There was confusion when Kazuki Hirata’s music played but nobody stepped through the curtain. Keigo Nakamura eventually made his way down to ringside to tell Yukinori Matsui that Hirata had gone missing. Naomichi Marufuji then made his entrance carrying Hirata over his shoulders! It turned out Hirata tried to ambush Marufuji backstage but failed in a major way. Hirata apologised to Marufuji and promised he was now Reborn. He offered a handshake but it was a trap for another sneak attack to start the match. Marufuji easily took control, forcing Hirata to bring out the Hirata GO! glasses. Marufuji knocked off the glasses and broke them over his knee. Just when he was about to finish the job, Hirata begged for a break so he could tell him something important. Hirata wrote a letter telling Marufuji how seeing him wrestle on TV gave him hope to live at a time when he had nothing. His one wish is to dance with Marufuji! Two Hirata GO! glasses found their way into the ring and Hirata convinced a hesitant Marufuji to dance with him. Then he hit an Enzuigiri and tried to Cradle Marufuji for a near fall. Marufuji stayed calm, danced with Hirata again and knocked him out with the Ko-oh knee strike. When Hirata came to, Marufuji stuck out his hand and asked him his name. This isn’t the reason he came to DISASTER BOX and DDT but after today, Marufuji will remember Hirata’s name.

The Right To Challenge series returned with three prizes on the line in a Ladder Match. Yasu Urano, Daisuke Sasaki and (a bare assed) Shinya Aoki all grabbed an envelope that hung above the ring. After the match Imabayashi told them to open their envelopes because one of them was different than the others. Sasaki and Aoki just has the regular Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts but Urano found out he held a Right To Challenge At Saitama Super Arena Contract! Imabayashi gifted Urano with a decorative sword that represented the KO-D Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” in June.

Imabayashi explained that the rules for the sword are the same as the regular Right To Challenge Contract. If Urano loses to another wrestler then he loses the sword and the title shot to that wrestler. Sasaki asked if he could use his own contract to challenge Urano for the cool looking sword? Imabayashi figured he could. Sasaki shouted he was cashing in his contract and he immediately attacked Urano to start the match. They scrambled for two minutes until Sasaki rolled through Urano’s Hurricanrana to pin him for the three count. Sasaki celebrated with the sword by doing the Fire Festival pose. Backstage Sasaki said he wants to win the KO-D Title at Saitama Super Arena then propose to Candice LeRae at NXT or Raw or Smackdown or AEW or wherever it is she works.

The trio of Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai are now called Eruption. They entered together with matching white entrance gear and a unit video. Their debut as a new force in DDT saw them defeat ALL OUT. Sakaguchi & Akai took out Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata with Apron PKs while Higuchi pinned Akito with the Doctor Bomb. When asked what the meaning of Eruption is, Sakaguchi told reports to just look at the name and their entrance video. Higuchi believes DDT as it is now is not the DDT he likes so Eruption will go on a rampage. Akai said they will create something new with DDT, something that is fun for the three of them.

A stylist from the Gold Shibuya hair salon worked on the hairstyles for every wrestler involved in Match #2. Yes even Super Sasadango Machine. The fans chanted “ikemen” at the wrestlers during the match. Sasadango was unmasked when MAO grabbed his “hair” and gave him a Snapmare. It turned out Sasadango’s real hair underneath the mask was also styled. Toru Owashi got some hairspray to freshen it up. They then helped the stylist live out his dream of being a pro wrestler by having him do The People’s Elbow on MAO. Hiroshi Yamato broke the pin and put Sasadango in position for MAO to hit the Cannonball 450.

Soma Takao has really taken a liking to using Elbow Smashes lately. He used a bunch of them followed by a Rolling Elbow on Keigo Nakamura for a nearfall. When Nakamura got back up, Takao took him out with a Running Elbow Butt.

6. The Man Of Shizuoka Shinya Aoki And The Triumphant Return Of Makoto Oishi! Shimizu Specialty Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Shinya Aoki defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Makoto Oishi when Aoki submitted Oishi with a Modified Omoplatta (16:18).

Just like what happened the last time they teamed together, Shinya Aoki wanted to copy HARASHIMA’s Diving Body Press. Konosuke Takeshita used a Power Bomb to place HARASHIMA in position for Makoto Oishi’s Luminous Press. Aoki broke the pin and tagged himself in. He and Oishi scrambled on the mat when Oishi put him in a Sleeper Hold. Aoki countered it into a European Clutch. Oishi got out of it and went for the Jikiden Tornado Clutch. Aoki countered that into an Omoplatta for the submission victory.

Nautilus told the crowd they will do their best to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles against Yuki Iino & Chihiro Hashimoto next week. Will the fans come to support them? “Yes or Nautilus!”

MAO and Mizuki Watase used a small cart to push each other into the ring posts as well as into Keigo Nakamura.

Speaking of Nakamura, he repeated the Hirata GO! glasses bit from yesterday’s show. It ended with Nakamura wearing Hisaya Imabayashi’s glasses again and dancing to “Toriko” by Nissy. Iino put on rugby headgear and accidentally tackled Nakamura with the Spear. Kazuki Hirata then pinned Nakamura with the Egoist Driver.

6. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino defeated HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Iino pinned Yoshimura with the Spear (21:00).

Yuki Iino has now pinned one of the KO-D Tag Team Champions. After the main event Konosuke Takeshita asked Iino if it is true that he will challenge for the titles with somebody from outside ALL OUT? Iino told him he is teaming with Chihiro Hashimoto although he struggled to spit it out. He explained that if he wins the title with Hashimoto on his team, then he can get a singles rematch against her. Takeshita accepted his answer and told him to focus on winning the Tag Titles first. Also if it means Hashimoto gets the option to join ALL OUT then that makes the idea even better!

MAO & Shunma Katsumata brought a box of Lego into their match. They ended up regretting the idea when Daisuke Sasaki attacked them with the same box then filled up Mad Paulie’s bodysuit with Lego. Paulie hit the Reverse Splash on Katsumata. Paulie was also in pain with all the Lego inside his wrestling gear but he got the pin in the end.

Makoto Oishi did the same Luminous Press move he used to beat Saki Akai but Tetsuya Endo kicked out of it. Endo countered the Miracle Ecstasy into the Torture Rack Bomb and pinned him with the Shooting Star Press.

Former stablemates Yukio Sakaguchi and Masahiro Takanashi shook hands after their match.

Keigo Nakamura proudly showed off the article about him in the latest issue of Shukan Puroresu to everyone during his entrance. He doesn’t want his growth to stop there so he told Kazuki Hirata to give him the Hirata GO! glasses. Hirata wasn’t sure that Nakamura was strong enough to use them but he trusted him with the glasses. Nakamura’s attempts to wear the glasses were stopped several times. When he finally had the all clear to wear them, he threw them away! Nakamura instead asked to wear Hisaya Imabayashi’s regular glasses. Imabayashi obliged, Nakamura put them on and “Toriko” by Nissy played instead of “Tokyo Go”. Nakamura danced until Hirata gave him the Egoist Driver for the finish.

1. Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino, Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya and MAO & Keigo Nakamura when Yoshimura pinned Nakamura with a Fire Thunder from the stage through a table (32:18).

The stage was set with Hisaya Imabayashi and Pokotan welcoming the audience to DDT’s annual match at the HandMade In Japan Fes. Each team entered with their own weapons like a ladder, chairs and a table. The match started off with basic holds and grappling until it was time to cause some mayhem throughout the rest of the festival.

Naomi Yoshimura lifted Keigo Nakamura up in a Canadian Backbreaker and carried him around for all the fans to see. MAO put Yuki Iino in a Crossface Lock until Yukio Naya broke it up with a Shoulder Tackle. MAO hit back with a Shining Wizard. He then stole Pokotan’s feet and used them as a weapon.

The fighting moved throughout the market area where the wrestlers all put each other in submission holds. When they weren’t wrestling they were checking out all of the goods on sale.

Over in the play area, Nakamura climbed above the vending machines. He wanted to dive onto everyone but thought against it when nobody would get in position below. The others found a playhouse shaped like Mt. Fuji and formed a Headscissors chain through it. Naya then flipped everyone over with a Crab Hold. Yoshimura dragged everyone through the other side to escape.

Iino & Shunma Katsumata took control and piled everyone up in front of Mt. Fuji. Iino did the Haka Elbow onto the pile.

Nakamura found a large blue sphere that he wanted to dive off of. He needed help from the referee to climb it but still slipped off. Yuki Ueno had no trouble climbing the sphere and Moonsaulting off of it.

The match returned to the music area where everyone discovered a castle of chairs was built in front of the stage. Makoto Oishi had it built while Naya stood around as its protector. Iino accidentally charged into it when his attack missed Oishi. This made Oishi cry a lot.

The remains left a pile of chairs waiting to be used as weapons. Katsumata grabbed one but got it kicked into his head by Nakamura. Everybody’s attention then moved over to the ladder. They all fought over the chance to climb it.

Nakamura tried to climb but Iino pulled him down. Iino tried to climb but MAO pulled him down. MAO tried to climb but Oishi pulled him down. Oishi tried to climb… and everyone allowed him to. A reluctant Oishi eventually dived off the ladder.

MAO placed a bunch of chairs together and put Oishi through them with a Package Piledriver. Naya cut off the pin with a Knee Attack to MAO. He then Choke Slammed Oishi onto MAO. Iino did the Spear to Naya but Yoshimura broke up the pin.

Nautilus used their combined strength to give Iino and Double Brainbuster. Katsumata and Ueno fought up to the stage. Katsumata charged Ueno but was given a Back Body Drop off the stage onto everyone below.

Nakamura placed the ladder onto his shoulders and spun around, hitting whoever walked into him. He got on the stage and wanted to climb the ladder again but Nautilus stopped him. Nakamura kicked out of the double team so Ueno set up a table next to the stage. Yoshimura put Nakamura through the table with a Fire Thunder for the three count.

Ueno & Yoshimura addressed the fans after the match then asked if Nakamura was ok. He didn’t move so everyone laughed. They then asked the festival president if DDT can come back next year. He said he would consider it.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Masato Tanaka

When Naomichi Marufuji joined DISASTER BOX last week, he was happy to meet the entire unit for the first time. The thing is according to Kazuki Hirata they have met before. They even spent a night drinking together. Marufuji doesn’t remember that. Even worse, he doesn’t remember Hirata’s name! So Toru Owashi has organised a match between the two. He knows Marufuji has wrestled the likes of Stalker Ichikawa so this match shouldn’t be an uncomfortable experience for him. It’s not about who wins or loses. It will be a chance for Hirata to leave an impression on Marufuji. Hirata has promised to do his best so Marufuji will never forget his name ever again!

An infomercial match for hair products has been added to the show. The wrestlers involved will all have their hair done up by a professional hairdresser. Owashi is upset over this because he’s had his hairstyle for nearly 20 years and doesn’t want to change it. Keigo Nakamura was brought out to show off his new hairstyle but Owashi figured out it was a wig and he pulled it off.

DDT “INTO THE FIGHT 2020”, 23/02/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes
2. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs MAO

MAO will face the winner of HARASHIMA versus Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. His Pokotan stunt last week got one over on both wrestlers so MAO should be prepared to face either.

It’s been decided that Konosuke Takeshita and Chris Brookes will be the two wrestlers fighting to become the first ever DDT UNIVERSAL Champion. Takeshita wants to be the first champion so he can bring DDT abroad and show everyone overseas what an exciting hotspot the promotion is. He’s happy to face Brookes again because he thinks they are the most interesting opponents for each other. Brookes thinks he is the better choice to promote DDT abroad but admits that he brings out his best against Takeshita. He has not achieved any of the goals he has set for his tours so far. He didn’t beat Takeshita for the KO-D Title, he didn’t win the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Takanashi and he didn’t win the D-Ou Grand Prix. It’s very important for him to become the first UNIVERSAL Champion when he begins his year long stay in Japan. What both wrestlers agree on is the title provides a blank slate and they will set the standard for its matches. They can provide something that can attract worldwide attention while being different from the KO-D Title and the DDT Extreme Title.
