*V3 for Ken Ohka.

The Independent World Jr. Title still belongs to Ken Ohka after a hard fought victory against “brother” YASSHI. Ohka kicked out of YASSHI’s big moves like the Nice Jamaica and the Flying Big Head. Ohka hit back with a Headbutt and a short range Fire Spear for a nearfall. Ohka then finished YASSHI off with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster and another Fire Spear to win. Ohka gave an emotional speech to YASSHI after the match. Ohka didn’t know anything when they first met. He wasn’t physically strong or had any athletic achievements but he still wanted to be a pro wrestler. So he found the Dragon System, joined their wrestling school and met YASSHI for the first time. Ohka can’t say who was the bigger fool of the two when they went their seperate ways. Ohka had quit and returned to wrestling so many times over 17 years. Today in Shinjuku FACE he and YASSHI had a big match together. He is so happy he gets to wrestle his colleagues now. Ohka fell onto YASSHI and hugged him. YASSHI was crying too and he didn’t know why. He didn’t care about winning a championship today. He came here today to look for an answer and now he found it. He wanted to fight a confident and emotional wrestler who would put it all on the line with no regrets. Today’s match wasn’t for “brother” YASSHI, it was for Yasushi Tsujimoto. He said there is not a single wrestler like Ken Ohka in this industry. YASSHI pleaded with Ohka to continue wrestling and to do so with pride. With the silly emotional stuff out of the way, YASSHI snapped back to his regular self and told Ohka he made a jealous enemy today. When they meet again in this ring, YASSHI will kill him!

When YASSHI left ringside, Ohka went into his finishing speech but was suddenly interrupted by an unexpected visitor. It was Daisuke Sasaki and he was carrying the DDT Extreme Title! Sasaki thought Ohka was going to lose but he proved him wrong. Sasaki called it a great match that moved him and he hopes the 3 Way Match in DDT on 24th September will be just as good. He wanted to shake Ohka’s hand. It was a trap and Sasaki kicked Ohka below the belt! Sasaki mocked Ohka for falling for his trap. He doesn’t care about championships, he’s here to win the 660,000 yen that Ohka would have gambled had he lost his championship today. Ohka told Sasaki he has no need to gamble it now. His Independent World Jr. Title will be defended in the match as planned so he has no need to put his money on the line anymore. Sasaki silenced Ohka when he pulled something out of his pocket. It was Ohka’s savings book! Sasaki stole it backstage during the main event. Sasaki looked through it and discovered that Ohka now has 714,146 yen in his account. Ohka called for help and several Ganpuro wrestlers ran into the ring to grab the book. Sasaki fought all of them off. Ohka got up and Headbutted Sasaki. He went for the Fire Spear but Sasaki dodged it and Ohka speared himself into the turnbuckles. Sasaki fled the ring with Ohka’s savings book. Ohka’s money is gone but he will still defend his title in DDT on 24th September. Then he will defend it again against MIYAWAKI back in Ganbare☆Wrestling on 30th September.

The Awakening Power Bomb that Keisuke Ishii used to win his match is a Sit Down Thunder Fire Power Bomb. The match was also Shota’s return bout for Ganbare☆Wrestling. His first match back from injury happened the day before in Guts World. His partner for the match Yumehito Imanari apologised for taking the fall and letting him down.

Shuichiro Katsumura stopped Osamu Namiguchi with a Benadryller style High Kick to win by TKO. Although he was still dazed, Namiguchi grabbed a microphone and thanked Katsumura for not holding back against this dying semi-pro wrestler. However Namiguchi wasn’t satisfied by how he lost and now feels like the worst wrestler in Japan. He begged Katsumura to strike him right in the brain and finish him off. Katsumura said he didn’t understand what Namiguchi was saying. He noted that the match they just had was advertised as a Shinjuku bout. So they should have more matches against each other in places like Shin-Kiba and other cities. Namiguchi shouted with approval.

Nanaka Kawamura made quite an entrance for her debut wrestling match. She entered wearing a hockey mask, carrying a floral designed chainsaw and was accompanied by four other girls doing the same. Emi Sakura was announced as the “Youngest Active Idol Wrestler” during her introduction, which made her glare at the ring announcer. She also glared at Kawamura when she offered a respectful handshake at the start of the match. Sakura & Riho put Kawamura through the usual rookie’s welcome while HARUKAZE did what she could to aid her partner. Kawamura eventually submitted to Sakura’s Shukurimu but was praised by Ken Ohka after the match. Ohka urged Kawamura to continue and one day she will get her first victory. Ohka then praised Sakura for her entire career but accidentaly made her mad when he said she gave up the chance of marriage to do what she does. Sakura scolded Ohka for his words then turned to Kawamura. Sakura is happy to get new challenges and Kawamura should be too. Kawamura said it was her mother’s dream to become a pro wrestler and today she made it come true on her behalf. Kawamura wants Sakura to come back so they can have more matches together.

There was a special guest in attendance for today’s show. Katsuji Nagashima has worked behind the scenes for New Japan and World Japan. He spoke with several wrestlers in the ring throughout the show and asked for everyone to nickname him Wolf. He handed a book to Imanari and told him it was the same book he gave to Kensuke Sasaki when he convinced him to leave New Japan for World Japan. He said he made Sasaki betray Riki Choshu. Now he thinks Imanari should betray Sanshiro Takagi! At the end of the show he told Ohka he was surprised by what he saw. He felt like he watched pro wrestling for the first time again. He offered to lend Ohka 10,000 yen after he saw Sasaki steal his money. He then asked Ohka to call him Wolf again.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? ~DDT DRAMATIC GENERAL ELECTION 2017 ~LAST REQUEST SPECIAL!~”, 24/09/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

5. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone But Is Worried Whether It Will Be Suitable Content – Loser Leaves House: Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine
6. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone: HARASHIMA Vs KUDO
7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Ken Ohka (I/c)

Producer Danshoku Dino explained why he decided to make the HARASHIMA Vs KUDO match. If Sanshiro Takagi, NOSAWA Rongai and MIKAMI were the most important figures in DDT’s creation then HARASHIMA and KUDO are the most important wrestlers for the rest of the 20 year history of the company. Dino wants to see who is the stronger of the two in today’s DDT. HARASHIMA thinks the winner of this match can have a claim to be the No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Openweight Title. KUDO is confident he will win because he beat HARASHIMA in their last singles match together.

For the 3 Way Match main event, KUDO predicts Ken Ohka will find a way to win. Ohka famously won the KO-D Title from KUDO back in 2015 by using his Right To Challenge title shot in the middle of KUDO’s defence against Yasu Urano, turning it into a 3 Way in the process. Ohka pinned Urano to become the champion. His plan worked perfectly but KUDO had his own Right To Challenge Contract and cashed it in to immediately win back the championship. KUDO thinks the landscape of the upcoming main event changes completely with the addition of Ohka. He knows Ohka will have a trick up his sleeve to win somehow.

A weird moment happened at the “NON-FIX ~ 9.13 ~” show a few days ago. Muscle Sakai and Super Sasadango Machine were in the ring together at the same time. It was odd because nobody had ever seen them in the same place before. Sasadango explained in an unusual voice that he hired Sakai as a subcontractor to help Producer Dino with his busy schedule. Sakai’s role is to produce the first ever singles match between Dino Vs Sasadango. Dino is allowing this because Sakai is such an indispensable part of DDT history. Sasadango shocked both Sakai and Dino by revealing that the match is now a Loser Leaves House match! Whoever loses must leave their home and move somewhere else! Sakai got mad because he, er, Sasadango just bought his house in Niigata. When asked why he would make that stipulation, Sasadango said it’s because he lived in Niigata for many years and should move to Tokyo even though he doesn’t want to. But he is also determined not to lose the match. He came up with this stipulation only because the match needs a bet. Sakai admitted he’d like to make Dino move to a new house so the stipulation was accepted!

*V3 for Shuten-dōji.

DDT took a trip through its past for a special show held inside their old venue Shibuya Club ATOM. It was the first time in 13 years that DDT was at the building. Some old friends and faces stopped by and even some of the current generation of DDT wrestlers gave a few references to past members of the company. The main event was a big reunion as HERO!, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba returned to face Shuten-dōji. The decision was made at the start of the show to turn the match into a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. The champions defeated their retro opponents then were joined by the rest of the roster to celebrate 20 years of DDT to end the show.

The YaroZ Vs DAMNATION 6-Man Tag Match was split into two matches by order of Producer Danshoku Dino. He wanted Antonio Honda to have a singles match so he was put in a match against Tetsuya Endo. The remaining Yaroz and DAMNATION wrestlers would then fight in a normal tag match. DAMNATION came out on top in both matches.

Konosuke Takeshita wanted himself and Akito to team with Poison Sawada JULIE because he was the one who pinned JULIE in his retirement match five years ago. JULIE told both of them that ALL OUT is missing something vital. Entertainment! He gave both of them a bottle labelled “ALL OUT POISON” and encouraged them to drink. They were hesitant to do so until JULIE said is was a state of the art 100% protein drink. Takeshita & Akito went ahead and drank their bottles. JULIE then revealed it is Snake World Protein and they are now under his spell! When it was time for their match, Takeshita & Akito wore JULIE style gear and were now called Konosuke Hebikita & Hebikito! With a hiss and a rattle, JULIE controlled his subjects to defeat NωA. Hebikito gave Shunma Katsumata the Maoi Of Easter then put him in a Figure Four Leg Lock. Hebikita put Makoto Oishi in the Cattle Mutilation to make him submit. The snake potion wore off 10 minutes after the match and JULIE only brought two bottles. Neither Takeshita nor Akito noticed.

When Ken Ohka arrived in the building, so many memories came flooding back. Not all of them good. He flashed back to 2004 when he was wrestling as the musketeer O.K. Revolution and was forced by Sanshiro Takagi to retire. With this fresh in his mind he wanted revenge on Takagi. He tried to convince Danshoku Dino and Muscle Sakai to join him and gang up on Takagi. But when the bell rang to start the match Takagi, Dino and Sakai all attacked Ohka instead. Takagi tried to give Ohka the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Cherry rolled into the ring and stopped him. Takagi got rid of Cherry and tried his finisher again. This time Sakai stopped him and then to everyone’s surprise Super Sasadango Machine entered the ring. Takagi’s confusion at seeing Sakai and Sasadango standing next to each other distracted him long enough for Ohka to hit him with the Fire Spear for the three count. Ohka told Takagi afterwards that he dreamt of nothing but beating him in Club ATOM. Now that he did it, he forgives him for what happened between them in the past. Ohka cried for his music to play but there was silence. Takagi reminded Ohka who is the real thing around here and screamed for his own song to play. This time it did.

Kazuki Hirata brought down Tetsuya Koda to be a DJ for the Club House Death Match. DJ Koda was instructed to play only one song throughout the match, “TOKYO GO”. Koda kept getting accidentally cut off by Toru Owashi. When he eventually recovered and played the song again, Mike Bailey put on the HIRATA GO! glasses and sang along while Keisuke Ishii pinned Hirata with the Kneel Kick.

4. Forgotten K ICE BREAK: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Yasu Urano
5. Special Single Match: Ken Ohka Vs MIYAWAKI

Ganbare☆Wrestling only visits Osaka a couple of times a year so when Ohka found out he had an opportunity to wrestle MIYAWAKI, he couldn’t say no. If Ohka is still the Independent World Jr. Champion then he will defend the title against him.

Yumehito Imanari is still upset over the lack of plump women in Ganpuro so he’s making his match with Sumire Natsu and HARUKAZE a Double Sweet Death Match! Candy will be everywhere for this one. He was hoping Viper would get booked because she is in Japan for a Stardom tour. He’d be happy to book Toni Storm too. She doesn’t seem to be his type but he likes her face. Ohka is refusing to book them for the show because they already have Natsu and HARUKAZE.

Promoter Fumihiko Uwai will be attending the show to do some ring announcing and also select Dai Suzuki’s opponent.

1. Yuki Ueno Vs Koju Takeda
2. Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo
3. Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Diego

DNA continues to be attack on two fronts. Kouki Iwasaki & Diego are trying to stop Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo’s new reign of terror. Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani are standing up to Keisuke Okuda after his claims that DNA’s wrestlers are lukewarm talents. It looks like the only outsider getting along with DNA is Koju Takeda. He and Yuki Ueno enjoyed teaming together at “DNA 36” and now want to see who is the better man between them.

Ken Ohka interfered in the main event to attack the DAMNATION wrestlers and apparently aid Konosuke Takeshita in the process. Ohka picked up Takeshita and encouraged him to fight. It turned out to be a ruse and Ohka gave Takeshita a Vertical Brainbuster. Ohka went to hit the Fire Spear but Daisuke Sasaki cut him off with a chairshot. With Ohka dealt with, Sasaki ducked Takeshita’s Lariat and twisted him into La Mistica Cross Facelock for the submission victory.

NωA failed to win back the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles but they now have even bigger fish to fry. Shunma Katsumata & MAO want a shot at the GHC Jr. Tag Team Titles over in NOAH! They lost to the current champions HAYATA & YO-HEY in the NOAH Jr. Tag League and they want revenge. Meanwhile Masahiro Takanashi is pissed off that DAMNATION and Ohka Empire Returns are ahead of Shuten-dōji in the Dramatic General Election.

Producer Danshoku Dino knew not to put himself and HARASHIMA in another Falls Count Anywhere match. Instead their tag match today was fought under New York Rules. Pinfalls and submissions would only count when the wrestler is kissing his opponent during the pin or submission hold. HARASHIMA agreed to the rule while both Soma Takao and Keisuke Ishii were wondering why were they being dragged into this. HARASHIMA pinned and kissed Dino to win the match. He admitted he was confused by the rules. Takao also pointed out he now kissed three people in the ring today.

An update was given on the Dramatic General Election standings. DAMNATION is dominating with Daisuke Sasaki leading the solo election and the entire group is winning the unit election. Pigging 2017 is dead last as expected.

We’ll start off with the dark match because this had long term effects on DDT’s power structure. Amon Tsurumi was fired by Producer Danshoku Dino because the General Manager role was no longer needed. But he was given one chance to keep his job if he could beat the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda in a wrestling match. He couldn’t. Tsurumi tried to put Koda in a Cross Armbreaker but it was countered into a Katahajime for the submission loss. Producer Dino confirmed that Amon Tsurumi was fired but he had another announcement. Tsurumi is gone but Dino wants Hisaya Imabayashi to become his Assistant Producer! So long, afro!

The show took place with only one match announced beforehand and it was happening in the pre-show. The rest of the card was determined by a group interview held inside the ring by Producer Dino. If anybody wanted to request a match or idea to him then this was the time to do it. Pigging 2017 wanted a tag match against all of the women, which was accepted. Both Daisuke Sasaki and Shigehiro Irie wanted a match with the debuting Solo Darling but she was just put into the Pigging tag match so they were both declined. NωA wanted to fight Shuten-dōji for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Dino felt they weren’t worthy of a title shot but if they could beat the champions in a non-title Elimination Tag match then he would reconsider. Kazuki Hirata wanted to quit T2Hide so he can move on to become a high quality heavyweight wrestler. The other T2Hide members were shocked to hear this. Dino decided to make Hirata fight his friends in a Handicap Match to prove his claims. Daisuke Sasaki asked if he could leave. Dino said no. Yuko Miyamoto said he is still upset he lost to Nobuhiro Shimatani in the Beer Garden Sumo tournament so he challenged him to a sumo match right now. He accepted and Miyamoto threw him out of the ring to win. Kouki Iwasaki wanted to fight the best team in DDT. Producer Dino decided that himself, Iwasaki & Keisuke Ishii would fight Smile Squash in a Falls Count Anywhere match. This would also prepare Dino and HARASHIMA for their upcoming Factory Wrestling match. Kazusada Higuchi wanted a match with Irie before Irie leaves on his next overseas expedition. Higuchi wants to find out if he can become stronger without having to leave Japan. Joey Ryan wanted a match with Antonio Honda. Ryan has wrestled in Japan for two years now but never had a match against Honda. Finally, Producer Dino decided the main event should be Konosuke Takeshita Vs Daisuke Sasaki Vs Ken Ohka in a non-title preview of their high stakes 3 Way Match next month. Sasaki didn’t want to do it. Producer Dino convinced him by saying the winner of the match would get 2,000 yen of Imabayashi’s money but if Sasaki won he would get 20,000 yen from Imabayashi.

Ken Ohka used the numbers game in the 3 Way Match to win despite being overpowered by his opponents. Takeshita was about to give Sasaki the German Suplex to win when Ohka came in and hit the Fire Spear to Takeshita from behind. Ohka then hit the Fire Spear on Sasaki to get the winning pinfall. Ohka couldn’t believe his luck. He just beat two wrestlers who are a combined age of 30 years younger than he is! The difference is Ohka has 15 years of experience and he spent all of that time climbing and crawling up from the mud of this industry. And now he’s 2,000 yen richer too.

It’s back to square one for Tetsuya Endo and the first thing he is doing is adding more finishing moves to his arsenal. Today he pinned Diego with a Swan Dive Firebird Splash.

Irie defeated Higuchi with a string of Beast Bombers keeping Higuchi down until he could not get back up. When Irie revealed his plans earlier this week to go overseas again he also decided to pull himself out of the Dramatic General Election. The rest of the YaroZ promised him they would do their best to win the Unit Election and get their own show in Korakuen Hall when he comes back. Irie said he wants YaroZ to put together their horniest event ever when they make it to Korakuen Hall.

The Falls Count Anywhere match spilled all over the room. The finish even took place over at one of the counters where HARASHIMA knocked down Iwasaki with a High Kick. He then went to one end of the counter and sprinted across to hit the Somato. HARASHIMA told Producer Dino that he is looking forward to the changes in DDT but he also likes being a KO-D Tag Team Champion so Dino better be ready for him at the Factory Wrestling Match. Miyamoto was tired after wrestling his third match (including the sumo game) for today. He was about to talk about the Dramatic General Election when Soma Takao blocked his mouth. HARASHIMA had to explain that campaigning inside the wrestling ring during the elections is prohibited.

Honda distracted Ryan at the start of their match by saying in English he had broken kness. He also tried to block Ryan’s lollipop with his hand formed to look like Gon, The Little Fox. Honda also grabbed Ryan’s nipple to stop his attacks. But no matter what happened, Ryan got the win when he Super Kicked Honda during a wind up for the Bionic Elbow.

NωA successfully defeated Shuten-dōji in a close Elimination Match. The Shuten-dōji wrestlers blamed the Ring Out rules as the reason they lost. Dino granted NωA their request for a KO-D 6-Man Tag Title match on 2nd September.

Hirata was in danger of losing the Handicap Match when Sanshiro Takagi lifted him up for the Sit Down Himawari Bomb. Hirata escaped by plutting his Hirata GO! glasses on Takagi’s face. The urge for Takagi to dance was too much and Hirata capitalised with a School Boy for the three count. Toru Owashi couldn’t stop the count because he was tied up in the Paradise Lock. Takagi said a promise is a promise and he congratulated Hirata on graduating from T2Hide. However, Daisuke Kiso found something interesting in Hirata’s contract. According to the contract, if Hirata leaves T2Hide before his deal expires then he must buy the entire stock of Hirata GO! glasses at their selling price. DDT have 3,000 glasses in stock and they are priced at 2,000 yen each. That means Hirata must pay T2Hide 6,000,000 yen if he wants to leave them! Suddenly Hirata had a change of heart. He doesn’t want to leave T2Hide. T2Hide are the best! Hirata now wants to help make T2Hide the most powerful unit in the wrestling world.

Solo Darling was thrilled with her first match in Japan. She called it a very wild experience and cannot wait to go on a sugar rush in Tokyo Joshi Pro tomorrow.
