*V7 for Keisuke Ishii.

Ganbare☆Wrestling is the next compaby to say they are now back to holding shows after a two and a half month absence. The roster all came down to the ring one by one at the start of the show. Only Ken Ohka and Yumehito Imanari got into the ring after Ohka told the others to respect social distancing. Together Ganpro promised to make today’s show a success in front of the crowd.

In the main event Keisuke Ishii successfully defended the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title for the 7th straight time. Ohka hit the Fire Spear twice but couldn’t get the pin. In return Ishii struck Ohka with a Kneelift to the face, landed a Double Knee Drop and locked in the Neck And Arm Lock to get the submission victory. Afterwards Ishii said if he makes it to over 10 defences in this title reign then he will break the record for most overall defences in the championship’s history. He wanted to defend the title today and originally thought Ohka didn’t deserve to be the challenger. However, Ohka’s passion for pro wrestling in the match they just had proved Ishii wrong. Ohka reminded Ishii that their Loser Leaves Town Match in Union Pro seven years ago is what led to the creation of Ganbare☆Wrestling! He encouraged Ishii to break the title defence record but warned he wants to be the one who stops his reign.

The semi-main event tag had an awkward ending where Shinichiro Tominaga grabbed onto the referee to prevent Mizuki Watase from doing a Tiger Suplex. Watase tried to do a Power Bomb instead but Tominaga Cradled him to steal the three count. He was happy to win it that way. Meanwhile Kouki Iwasaki and Shigehiro Irie had a staredown with each other after the match.

8. TOKYO 2020 LAST MAN STANDING: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yoshihiko with an Explosion (15:04).

Day 1 of “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” was headlined with the grudge match between Konosuke Takeshita and Yoshihiko. But rather than take place inside the DDT TV SHOW Studio, Yoshihiko sent his enemy directions to a location where he wanted the Last Man Standing match to happen. It was by a graveyard at night. Takeshita was creeped out by his surroundings and was ambushed from behind by the doll. They fought on the ground and Yoshihiko kept its cool after it was given a German Suplex. It chased down Takeshita, applied a Figure 4 Leg Lock and even taunted Takeshita when he tried to fight out of it. When he finally broke free he went to hide and phoned Yuki Iino for help. But Yoshihiko found him and knocked the phone away right when Iino answered the call. Takeshita escaped into a nearby building yet Yoshihiko was never far away. It stalked him up to the roof but in a surprise, Takeshita pulled off the ambush this time. They had a fist fight on the roof that ended with Takeshita knocking the doll over the edge to the ground below. Takeshita thought he had won until he turned around and saw Yoshihiko reappear with its face covered in blood! It choked Takeshita with a Sleeper Hold but he fought out and grabbed a tank of gasoline. He poured the gas over Yoshihiko’s body but Yoshihiko grabbed the tank and did the same to Takeshita. They fought over a lighter until Yoshihiko struck Takeshita in the face and pulled out his left eyeball! He fought back, reclaimed the eye and pushed it back in. That gave Yoshihiko the opening to do the Canadian Destroyer. It grabbed the lighter and was about to use it when Takeshita knocked him across the roof with a Lariat. He ignited the lighter and threw it over to Yoshihiko, creating a big explosion. When the dust settled, Takeshita was the last man standing. Iino appeared carrying a bunch of baseball bats but Takeshita assured him it was all over. They left feeling like heroes but back on the rooftop the body of Yoshihiko remained. It’s eyes began to shine again…

Tables, ladders, chairs and block toys filled the ring by the time the Hardcore 3 Way Match was over. Daisuke Sasaki came out of it still carrying the DDT UNIVERSAL Title. There were moments where Isami Kodaka and Shunma Katsumata fought each other but they both knew getting Sasaki was the best way to win the title. Katsumata in his Super Hardcore form did everything he could. He gave Sasaki a Pedigree onto chairs. He also did a Moonsault Foot stomp onto Sasaki underneath a pile of the same chairs. But Kodaka was there to break the pin. Katsumata fought off Kodaka with the block toy covered baseball bat. That was when Sasaki took the bat, his Katsumata below the belt with it and pinned him with a Hurricanrana.

After the match Sasaki sat down on a chair while Kodaka climbed the ladder to speak to him. Kodaka admits defeat today but next time he wants a Singles match with Sasaki for the belt. Sasaki said he feels to tired for that so they should do a singles match in 10 years time. Kodaka thinks that is too long so he suggests they have a match in one year’s time so it will be during an Olympics year. Sasaki will think about it. But first he wants to nominate his next challenger. He wants… Masahiro Takanashi?

Kongo’s entry match into DDT was successful but were they satisfied with it? Kenoh led his troops into victory over the DDT team but they had to go through some familiar DDT spots to do it. Sanshiro Takagi smashed plastic cases over Masa Kitamiya’s head and ran over Hao with the Dramatic Dream Cycle. The Kongo members not in the match stopped the bike while Kitamiya fought Kazusada Higuchi in the ring. Tomomitsu Matsunaga ran wild and tried to get the win on Hao but a Tornado Clutch counter gave the result to the outsiders. Kenou confronted Takagi with a microphone after the match but threw it away without saying a word. When Kongo left ringside, Takagi spoke about the different ideologies between DDT and NOAH. They don’t have to fit together. Also Takagi doesn’t see the need to fight Kenou again after today. Kongo can lead NOAH their way and Takagi can lead DDT his way.

Coach Jun Akiyama’s run through the DDT roster moved him up to ALL OUT. With Mizuki Watase as his tag partner they lost to Akito & Yuki Iino. He was confused by Iino’s Haka style antics and underestimated Akito’s grappling skills. Watase took over and caught Iino with the Front Neck Lock. He countered a Spear attempt by jumping over it a Double Stomping Iino on the way down. Unfortunately Iino revved up momentum again and this time hit the Spear for the three count. He walked up to Akiyama after the match and did some Haka poses again.

To celebrate Muscle Sakai’s promotion to president of the Sakai Seiki company, DDT sent Pokotan down to the factory in Niigata to have a match with Super Sasadango Machine. Pokotan was disinfected before handing a letter to Sasadango. It was from Takagi saying the match was now all up to Sasadango to put together. Unfortunately, Sasadango had to turn down the match over fear of exposing his factory to Coronavirus. So instead he invited Pokotan to take a tour of his business. Pokotan was introduced to Yukako Mito and she showed the mascot how to polish plastic molds. Pokotan was left alone to polish the molds for hours until he noticed Mito went missing. He went searching for her and could hear shouting coming from another room. He found a sign on the door that said “Niigata Joshi Pro Wrestling (#njpw)” He opened the door and saw Sasadango was training Mito to wrestle by stomping on boxes! They caught Pokotan spying on their secret plan to launch a new pro wrestling company. It was decided that Pokotan was now Mito’s sparring partner and they would have a match straight away. Mito cartwheeled across the room and hit a Space Rolling Elbow for a nearfall. She then climbed a nearby desk and did her special move, the Beautiful Cross Body to win the match. The video then switched to a message from Sasadango & Mito. They warn DDT and Tokyo Joshi Pro to watch out because some day Niigata Joshi Pro will come to Tokyo and crush them! Look forward to #njpw’s official flag raising match soon!

The rookies put up a fight against the DAMNATION tag team. Keigo Nakamura & Hideki Okatani worked well together in two on one situations. That went out the window when Mad Paulie got rid of Nakamura. Okatani tried to fight off Soma Takao on his own but he was put away with the Diving Foot Stomp.

It did not look like Saori Anou was into Hiroshi Yamato’s karaoke but other than that they have to be happy with today’s win over Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE. Anou countered HARUKAZE’s Cross Armbreaker into a German Suplex for the pin.

Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Seigo Tachibana in the battle between wrestlers who want more DDT bookings. Shimatani wore down his opponent with a Fisherman Buster then got the win with the Counter Strike Crucifix. After the match, Hisaya Imabayashi told Tachibana he is now out of second chances. DDT won’t book him again so he should go home. However, Danshoku Dieno then walked out and helped Tachibana walk back to the locker room. He told Tachibana backstage that he wants to help him build up a track record good enough to be accepted by DDT.

1e. Shuichiro Katsumura & Minoru Fujita defeated Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki by TKO when Katsumura used the Ninja Choke on Iwasaki (16:30).

A unique match format was used for the tag team elimination match. Every round was a regular two vs two tag match. Whoever lost a fall would be eliminated and replaced by a teammate until one team was reduced to its last remaining member. Shuichiro Katsumura surprised everyone with the secret fourth member of his team. Everyone in the room expected it to be Ken Ohka. Instead it was Minoru Fujita! Katsumura even gave a big hint it was him by wearing a Fujita shirt to the ring. He jokingly called Fujita “The Fake Ken Ohka”.

The match began with Yumehito Imanari & Kouki Iwasaki on one side and Shota & Washi Sakurai on the other. Imanari tried to give Shota a Fisherman Suplex but Shota pulled him down by the hair and pinned him for the first elimination. Shinichiro Tominaga came in yet it was Iwasaki who got Sakurai to give up with a Texas Cloverleaf. Iwasaki then caught Shota in a Ground Cobra Twist for another elimination. That left Katsumura & Fujita as the last pair left on their team. Fujita summoned the spirit of Ken Ohka to fight like an underdog. He used a Modified Samson Clutch to get rid of Tominaga. That meant the last man left outside Keisuke Ishii was now able to enter the match. Katsumura trapped Iwasaki in the Ninja Choke and the match was stopped when Iwasaki went motionless.

Katsumura praised Fujita for coming to help him while Ohka wasn’t around. Fujita isn’t the Fake Ken Ohka. He is Shin Ken Ohka! Fujita explained he is in perfect condition because he has wrestled throughout the entire pandemic while everyone else stayed home. He told the others to call him whenever Ohka isn’t around. Do not call him Shin Ken Ohka. He should be more like Shin Osamu Namiguchi from Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling!

Yoshihiro Sakai, aka Muscle Sakai and nobody else, was appointed the President and Representative Director of Sakai Seiki Co., Ltd on 1st June. It is a farm equipment manufacturer and also Sakai’s family business. He originally retired from pro wrestling in 2010 to focus on that job and eventually succeed to the top. A decade later and it finally happened. To celebrate, the Super Sasadango Machine Vs Pokotan match will be dedicated to his achievement. I think it is being filmed in Niigata too since it was originally advertised as a Remote Pro Wrestling match.

-. Emergency Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Kazusada Higuchi with the Shooting Star Press (10:02).
*Tetsuya Endo cashes in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet. Tetsuya Endo wins Kazusada Higuchi’s KO-D Challenger Sword.

Week #3 of DDT TV SHOW ended with Tetsuya Endo regaining the KO-D Challenger Sword! In the scheduled main event tag match Endo kept Akito in his sights from the beginning. His goal was to pin Akito and take away the Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Daisuke Sasaki and Konosuke Takeshita kept each other away from the ring so it came down to Akito putting Endo into a submission hold. His Scorpion Deathlock attempt was countered by Endo into a Small Package for the flash three count.

After the match Endo asked Hisaya Imabayashi if the rules for the Sword and Gauntlets had changed now that Saitama Super Arena is out of the picture. When it was confirmed that the rules are the same, Endo called for Kazusada Higuchi to come out because he was challenging him for the Sword right now! Higuchi appeared still in his ring gear but without his wrestling boots. Endo attacked him as he entered the ring and the match began as they brawled around ringside. Endo hit a stage dive before Higuchi got back to the ring. Higuchi tried to Choke Slam Endo onto the apron but Endo gave him a Brianbuster onto it instead. Whatever Higuchi tried, Endo had a counter for. The three move combo of Tetsuya In The Sky, the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb and the Shooting Star Press put Higuchi away.

Endo received the Challenger Sword and said he already knows when to use it for a KO-D Openweight Title shot. He wants to use it right now! Imabayashi told him he already wrestled twice today and Masato Tanaka isn’t here. A relieved Endo admitted he is happy not to wrestle a third time so he will go home and wait for another time. According to him, everyone in DDT hope to wrestle in front of a packed venue again. He may wait to cash in the Sword until then or maybe he won’t.

Saki Akai is now 3-3 in the Okibariyasu. She survived the multiple Suplex variations from Saori Anou to pin her with the always reliable Quetzalcoatl. Akai told Anou the style of pro wrestling she likes is happy, beautiful, cool and flowery. Just like Anou. She wants the two of them to push forward not just joshi wrestling but pro wrestling as a whole. Akai then asked Imabayashi about the seventh and final opponent. Imabayashi told her the final match would have been in Saitama Super Arena but obviously that plan is out the window. He asked her to wait a little longer while he finds a suitable opponent.

The guest coach Jun Akiyama took a few DDT wrestlers to school. He and Keisuke Ishii beat the team of Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani. Akiyama did things here and there to provoke his younger opponents into firing themselves up. He eventually made Okatani tap out to a Crab Hold. Watase Dropkicked Akiyama as he was leaving the ring. Akiyama grabbed him by his head and scolded him until Watase admitted he wanted a singles match against him. Akiyama walked off but accepted the challenge before he left.

Three of the four ALL OUT wrestlers have now lost to Yoshihiko since DDT TV SHOW began. Not even Shunma Katsumata in a Joker costume can stop it! More signs saying “ALL OUT All Dead” were found backstage before the Hardcore Match, driving Katsumata crazy. In the match, Katsumata started off hot. He shoved Yoshihiko into a trash can, hit it with a barbed wire baseball bat and mousetrapped Yoshihiko’s head with a chair several times. Yoshihiko took control by Back Dropping Katsumata onto a chair, giving him a Bulldog and a Piledriver onto a counter and Choke Slamming him onto a Ladder. A ref bump led to Takeshita coming out to interfere while the ring was filled with Lego. The ALL OUT double team failed and Yoshihiko took out Takeshita with a dive out of the ring. It then gave Katsumata a Canadian Destroyer for a nearfall before winning with the Reincarnation onto the Lego. Takeshita confronted Yoshihiko, challenging it to a match.

The only blight on DAMNATION’s record today was losing to DISASTER BOX in the early tag match. Looks like HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura work better as a team than Soma Takao & Mad Paulie do.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match was presented like a TV comedy sketch with canned laughter. Danshoku Dieno and Antonio Honda kept getting accidentally hit in the groin until both of them could no longer continue. Daisuke Kiso said the punchline and the match ended in a No Contest.

Higuchi’s scheduled match for the episode was a simple win over Keigo Nakamura.

4. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 6th Match: Saori Anou Vs Saki Akai

Saturday’s tag match built up a little bad blood between Saki Akai and Saori Anou. The winning result for Anou left her thinking she is too much of a challenge for Akai in a singles match. Akai’s current record in her series is 2-3.

Jun Akiyama is now working with DDT both as a coach and a wrestler. His first match on this run sees him teaming with Keisuke Ishii. The two were last in the ring together wrestling each other in Ganbare☆Wrestling a year and a half ago. Ishii also once won the All Asia Tag Team Titles from him. Mizuki Watase & rookie Hideki Okatani are the first ones who get to learn King’s Road style from him.

ALL OUT, All Dead” continues with Shunma Katsumata as the next person looking to stop Yoshihiko from hunting the group down. He just lost a Hardcore Match on the last episode but is willing to go through another one just to get his hands on his nemesis. Yoshihiko might also make his presence known when Akito & Konosuke Takeshita have a tag match with their usual enemies in DAMNATION.

Saitama Wrestle Arena

Add this to the growing list of cancelled shows. Miyako Matsumoto thought of replacing the event with a no person, no audience, no wrestler show but sadly that also couldn’t come to pass. She extends her deepest sympathies to all the people around the world who have been infected with Coronavirus. She hopes the pandemic will end as soon as possible.
