7. Road To Ultimate Party 2019! Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino Vs HARASHIMA & Toru Owashi

At last Sunday’s show in Osaka, Toru Owashi threw in a shirt like it was a towel to call off the main event when HARASHIMA would not submit to the Walls Of Takeshita. Afterwards Owashi stood up to Konosuke Takeshita and said he will now be teaming with HARASHIMA at this Saturday’s show. Yuki Ueno was originally in that spot but now he is teaming with Kazuki Hirata in the Gauntlet Tag match.

It looks like Keigo Nakamura wasn’t being honest about his weight gain. Last week he announced that he reached his goal of reaching 75kg. Naomi Yoshimura made Nakamura weigh himself again today and they found out he is now actually at 68kg! Somehow he is losing weight instead of gaining it. At least his match with Yoshimura is still going ahead.

7. Road To Ultimate Party 2019! Special 6-Man Tag Best 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Ken Ohka & Shoko Nakajima Vs HARASHIMA, Isami Kodaka & Yuka Sakazaki

The main event has a 30 minute time limit but is also now best 2 out of 3 falls. The people involved has made this such an all star affair that DDT didn’t want the match to only last for one fall. HARASHIMA is not 100% physically fit after what happened on Sunday but he promises he is 100% mentally ready for this match and also Sumo Hall. Takeshita wants this to be a great match at a global level because it is significant for all of the DDT brands involved.

Daisuke Sasaki welcomes the idea of defending the KO-D Tag Team Titles at Sumo Hall in a Hardcore Match. That means he and the rest of DAMNATION can cheat to their heart’s content. The preview 4 Way at Korakuen Hall is also now a Hardcore match so we may get more examples of what they can do.

Masahiro Takanashi is impressed by how quickly Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura have bonded as a team. When he saw them challenge for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles with HARASHIMA last week, he didn’t see DISASTER BOX but rather HARASHIMA with Nautilus by his side. They will become KO-D Tag Team Champions some day which is why Takanashi & Chris Brookes need to beat them now. Also Takanashi wants to win the Tag Titles so the world will recognise him as Brookes’ DDT partner instead of Maki Itoh.

The main event is sponsored by DDT’s official energy drink BLACK OUT. The winner receives a 2,000,000 yen prize as well as a year’s supply of BLACK OUT. The Kenny Omega & Riho Vs Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita match is sponsored by Souken Holdings. The winning team gets a coupon worth 1,000,000 yen for home renovation. This might be a useless prize for Omega because he doesn’t live in Japan anymore.

Michiaki Nakano from Souken Holdings will be at ringside for the pre-show Battle Royal. He likes to attend these matches so he can try and win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. However the belt is currently being held by Kikutaro and he’s living in America now. Hisaya Imabayashi has pledged to bring the Iron Man Title back to Japan in time for the show.

Otani approached Ganpro asking to get another match with Shota, this time for the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Ganpro is giving him what he wants and even provided the tag partners for him.

The Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title gets its own all star match with the current champion as well as previous champions teaming up against each other. The theme is both teams have a combined 11 title defences between them. Ken Ohka has 3 defences and Isami Kodaka has 8. Keisuke Ishii has 6 defences and Shuichiro Katsumura has 5.

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Itabashi Three Major Singles Match: Keisuke Ishii defeated Shuichiro Katsumura (c) with the Kneel Kick (18:56).
*Shuichiro Katsumura fails in V6. Keisuke Ishii becomes the 29th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion!

Keisuke Ishii had to throw every big move he could think of to beat Shuichiro Katsumura. He used a Tiger Suplex into the turnbuckles, hit him in midair with the Kneel Kick when Katsumura jumped off the top rope, hit a Running Knee Kick and tried the Double Arm Clutch Driver. Katsumura was finally defeated when Ishii hit one last Kneel Kick.

Ishii said he could feel Katsumura’s desire to wrestle in Sumo Hall but in the end it is Ishii who will defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title there. Ishii wants to make Ganbare☆Wrestling more appealing than DDT and BASARA. This claim attracted the attention of Fuminori Abe! He wanted to show off his desire too so he sang to everyone. He then asked Ishii if he could be his challenger at Sumo Hall. Abe revealed that BASARA wants to clear out all of the championships in the DDT family by the time BASARA splits off into independence.

The Ganpro team didn’t waste any time bringing the fight to Irie-gun. They launched an attack during the in-ring introductions. But Irie-gun held together until it was time to launch the counter attack. Mizuki Watase & Ultra Soki held the Ganpro team back while Shigehiro Irie smashed Ken Ohka with the Beast Bomber. Irie asked Ohka afterwards if he was frustrated because he is no longer the energetic wrestler he used to be. Irie said they are on different paths but this won’t be their last battle. He wants to fight Ohka again when he gets stronger.

The big singles match between Yumehito Imanari and Kenichiro Arai ended in controversy. Arai reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock and Imanari had no way to break out of it. Arai’s cornerman Shota grabbed the towel from Imanari’s cornerman Shinichiro Tominaga and threw it into the ring behind the referee’s back. The referee thought that Tominaga threw in the towel and declared Arai the winner. Imanari wasn’t upset. In fact he was impressed to witness Arai being the wrestling master that he is! Arai didn’t know what to think of Imanari’s attitude and left the ring. Imanari treated this as a moral victory because he now has Arai’s attention.

0. Exhibition Match: Shunma Katsumata defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Texas Clover Hold (6:21).
1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno, HARASHIMA, Antonio Honda & Makoto Oishi, Ken Ohka, Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari and Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa when Kodaka pinned Ueno with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the cliff into the trout pond (83:09).

Bad weather postponed the original date of the match but other than that nothing stops Campsite Pro Wrestling!

Before the advertised match began, an exhibition took place with the trainee Keigo Nakamura taking on Shunma Katsumata. The match stayed in and around the gym mats representing the ring. Katsumata won with a Texas Cloverleaf then sang “Going my ωay!!!!!~You Are Not Alone” over a megaphone.

After a performance of the Japanese national anthem, it was time for the big match to begin! The Ganbare☆Wrestling team were led by Ken Ohka wearing a gas mask. Cat’s Pye all entered standing on the back of a truck. The BASARA team looked ready to go until Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi went to the ground and laid himself out flat. Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno were all dressed in military gear as if they were about to enter a survival Battle Royal game. The other DDT team were just in their regular wrestling gear and were by default the most normal team involved.

Things got off to an odd start when FUMA chased after opponents with nunchucks while Hiroshi began doing yoga stretches. Others liked what they saw and decided to join in. Yuki Kamifuku then tried to attract everyone’s attention with her modelling poses.

Ohka had enough and went in search of another area of the park. He ended up falling into a trout pond.

Everyone came across a pitched tent. Yumehito Imanari opened it up to look inside and found Cody Hall! An angry Hall attacked Imanari and a few others for disturbing his camping experience. He wouldn’t attack the women though and they were grateful to him because of it. He went back into his tent and the wrestlers moved elsewhere.

HARASHIMA and Isami Kodaka pushed Ueno inbetween some trees until he got stuck. HARASHIMA then scared Ueno by placing bugs on him.

All three women on Cat’s Pye climbed onto the roof of a nearby shack. They all encouraged each other to dive off onto everyone below. Only Mina Shirakawa went through with it. Kamifuku & Yuna Manase tricked her into jumping by saying they would all go together. They just stayed in place when Shirakawa jumped.

A large chain of wrestling holds between everyone took them up a hill where Hiroshi and Antonio Honda were seen meditating together. Hiroshi led everyone in a stretching exercise then demanded 3,500 yen from each person for the class fee.

FUMA found another tent and threatened whoever was inside to come out. It was SAGAT! He was supposed to be in the match on the original date but went ill with the flu. Now that it was postponed until today, he got recovered but never got invited back! He attacked his supposed teammates Kodaka & FUMA. They retaliated by burning down his tent!

The match went through a new route and Imanari found somewhere familiar. It was the hut he hid in during last year’s match when everybody shot fireworks at him! He told everyone it was his house and tried to step in. Unfortunately for him it was already occupied by Cody Hall! He threatened Imanari but calmed down when he saw Shirakawa, picking up a flower for her.

With everybody paying attention to Hall, Imanari took Manase hostage and hid inside the hut. He threatened to start filming movies of Manase but everybody shot fireworks at them until he let her go.

MAO and HARASHIMA fought by a small waterfall and both tried to down each other in it. Ueno and FUMA fought on top of a roof with Kodaka shooting fireworks at them. Ueno finally had enough and climbed down to the ground. It was here where he found something shocking.

Ueno saw a fence in the distance where both Kamifuku and Shirakawa were found strangled to death with nooses! Ueno asked who could have done such a thing. Imanari suddenly turned detective and found pieces of the girls’ costumes in Ueno’s pocket. Ueno grabbed Imanari and tried to strangle him. Imanari was rescued when Makoto Oishi struck Ueno over the head with a rock.

Oishi then went over to Kamifuku and Shirakawa and tried to revive them. They woke up, yelled “We’re zombies!” then chased after him.

MAO successfully used his gilly suit to hide away from the action and ambush Kodaka.

FUMA jumped off a tree to put Imanari through a table.

MAO used his gilly suit again to scare Keisuke Ishii off the roof of a hut. He then Moonsaulted onto everyone.

The match moved back to the starting area where the BASARA team continued to shoot fireworks at their opponents. Ohka & Imanari fought back by spraying fire extinguishers at them.

Imanari found the truck that Cat’s Pye entered in. He wanted to drive it but found out Cody Hall was in the driver’s seat! Hall attacked Imanari while Ohka got in the truck and drove into his opponents.

The truck was stopped single handedly by Takeshita. He stopped the truck in its tracks and even pushed it backwards.

Ishii attacked Takeshita and held him in front of the pond. Ohka charged over to do the Flame Spear but Takeshita got out of the way and Ohka plunged into the pond.

One by one everyone got thrown or slammed into the pond. It ended with Kodaka jumping off a cliff and hitting the Diving Double Knee Drop onto everyone in the pond below. He pinned Ueno in the water to give Team BASARA the victory after one hour and twenty minutes!

Kodaka said that this might be his last Campsite Match because BASARA will be leaving the DDT family soon. If it is then he is glad to have been rewarded with the win today. Meanwhile MAO found a gun that shot fireworks and fired it at the trainees for everyone’s entertainment. SAGAT tried to stop him with the Goregrind but MAO jumped out of the way. SAGAT landed in the campfire, again for everyone’s entertainment.

4. Kagetora & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when Kagetora pinned Ueno with the Gurumakakari (12:50).
5. Masahiro Takanashi defeated Danshoku Dieno with the Takatonic (17:45).

There were a lot of reunions and old faces appearing today to celebrate Masahiro Takanashi’s 16 years as a pro wrestler. In the main event Takanashi fought Danshoku Dieno with Muscle Sakai and Yusuke Inokuma in Dieno’s corner. Takanashi used some of Dieno’s own moves against him including a Lip Lock on the top turnbuckle. It was to set up an Avalanche Takatonic but Dieno countered it into an Avalanche Implant. But there was still life left in Takanashi. He avoided the Danshoku Driver and stunned Dieno with Thrust Kicks until he could win with the Takatonic.

After the match Takanashi was reunited with KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi. KUDO said it felt good to be inside a wrestling ring again. It’s not a place to talk but a place to fight. He assured everyone that he will come back to wrestling in the near future. Takanashi said that today felt like everybody was coming home. Everyone here is different but they all protect DDT with their own way of fighting. He will continue to do the same because there must be a ring for everyone to come home to, no matter where they are. Last year Takanashi lost his 15th anniversary match in this venue. He walked out without saying a word. This year things went better for him and he wants to stand in front of the fans, thanking them for coming today to see him. Later backstage Takanashi announced that he is will not be entering the upcoming D-Ou Grand Prix tournament. He cited his poor performances in the previous two tournaments as his reason. DDT was going to offer him a spot again but Takanashi turned it down so he can go on a different path he wants to take.

HARASHIMA and Kagetora shook hands after their tag match.

DAMNATION thought they were going to have a 4 on 1 advantage against Sanshiro Takagi. However Takagi gathered together an all star team of DDT legends to even the odds. Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba fought with Takagi while Poison Sawada JULIE watched from their corner. But in a twist JULIE betrayed Takagi by spraying Green Mist into his face while Takagi tried to give Daisuke Sasaki the Sit Down Himawari Bomb. Sasaki slipped out and pinned Takagi with a School Boy. JULIE told Takagi that they are enemies for life. Takashi Sasaki and Daisuke Sasaki teased a Sasaki Contra Sasaki Showdown. Daisuke Sasaki then told JULIE that if he ever comes back, he will quit DAMNATION so the two of them can run the Snake World together.

Before Match #2 began Takanashi reminded everyone that the Consumption Tax in Japan will increase to 10% this October. There are many things Takanashi wants to do before this change happens, like sending a message to two important people in his life in order to settle a lifelong rivalry between them. Hence the match between Super Sasadango Machine and DJ Nira. Sasadango came out as Muscle Sakai dressed in casual clothes. Sakai refused to wrestle Nira because he is retired. He got tricked into doing some moves and had his clothes removed to reveal his wrestling gear underneath. He still refused to wrestle. Hisaya Imabayashi got in the ring and put the Sasadango mask over Sakai’s head, granting him his approval to wrestle the match. Sasadango took control of the match and hit an F5. He then went for a Vertical Drop Brainbuster but the room went dark. A voiceover said that the Brainbuster went wrong and this was how Sasadango created his famous Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock finishing move! This entire match turned out to be Sasadango’s origin story called “Super Sasadango Machine Episode Zero”!

The Gauntlet Tag match was a visit through DDT’s past as well as Takanashi’s wrestling relationships outside the company. Antonio Honda & Riho first eliminated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Riho blocked Hirata’s knockout chop and rolled him up. The next team was supposed to be Yusuke Inokuma & MAO but they were injured before the show and a expected to be out of action for the next 30 years. Replacing them was the menacing return of Gaijin A & Gaijin A! They attacked Honda, Riho and Yukinori Matsui with sellotape, even hanging Riho over the ring ropes with it! Honda fought back and used the tape to hang both of the Gaijin A’s before knocking them to the floor for the elimination. Riho recovered in time for Konosuke Takeshita & Gorgeous Matsuno’s entry into the match. The unexpectedly sharp teamwork between Takeshita & Matsuno led to Takeshita submitting Honda with the Walls Of Takeshita after Matsuno his the Gorgeous Star Elbow. When Emi Sakura & Cherry came out, Takeshita attempted the Gorgeous Star Elbow but got caught in the ropes. Sakura was easily able to pin Matsuno without anyone there to stop her. A collision between Sakura & Cherry allowed Mei Suruga to pin Sakura with the Shoulder Propeller Clutch. Next up were Gota Ihashi, Shota & Chinsuke Nakamura all dressed up like Shuten-dōji wrestlers. Ihashi was Yukio Sakaguchi, Shota was Masahiro Takanashi and Chinsuke was KUDO. Suruga stopped Chinsuke from doing the Diving Double Knee Drop while Saki Akai pinned Ihashi with the Rookie Award. The joshi team’s run came to an end when Yasu Urano & Ken Ohka eliminated them. Urano countered the Propeller Clutch into a Cradle for the pin. The last team to come out was Hoshitango & Seiya Morohashi. They won the match when Morohashi made Ohka give up to the Crippler Crossface. However Morohashi and Ohka continued to fight after the match prompting Hoshitango and Urano to break them up.

In the boxing match Miyako Haru whistled Chupacabra down to the ring. It knocked Pokotan’s head off with an uppercut, revealing a rubber Danshoku Dieno mask underneath. Pokoton then knocked out Chupacabra with a Straight Right. Afterwards Sayako Obihiro pulled the rubber mask off to reveal Pokotan was Daichi Kakimoto!

Tomomitsu Matsunaga decided to wrestle in a sumo mawashi.

However Ishii came out and challenged Katsumura to a title match, thinking he should be the Ganpro wrestler holding the belt going into Sumo Hall. Their title match will happen on 28th September.

The GPW trio failed to win back the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles from Real GUTS Army. A frustrated Ken Ohka complained about the champions cheating during the match but Yumehito Imanari was eager to continue wrestling. He told Kenichiro Arai that he is persistent and wants a singles match against him on 28th September. Arai agreed. He has faced many kinds of wrestlers but Imanari is a new type he has discovered. DDT always ignored Arai but somehow Arai has become addicted to wrestling inside a DDT related ring.

14 months after his last match in Ganpro, Shinichiro Tominaga returned from his long absence. He put up a good fight against Ishii but his Jumping Knee Kick was blocked. Ishii stunned him with three Baseball Chops and got the win with a Double Arm Clutch Driver. Tominaga said it was his second match against Ishii, the first one happened around eight years ago. He said next time he will win! But first he’ll focus on getting stronger.

Ryotaro Watanabe is calling Naoshi Sano his “final” opponent. He doesn’t mean his last opponent, Sano is supposed to be his most challenging one. So he’s more like Watanabe’s final boss.

At the beginning of the show Mitomi Masayuki held a Q&A session with the Ganpro fan club. He claims to have gotten huge investments for his new P.P.P. Tokyo promotion.

Ohka would have loved to be part of “BAKUHA KOSHIEN 2019” in Tsurumi on 17th November but he is already booked for a show happening in his hometown of Toyama that day. It was his high school dream to participate in a Koshien tournament.
