Daisuke Sekimoto will be on the show.


DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL. 4” Results

July 26, 2021

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL. 4”, 26/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE
193 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Choun-Shiryu defeated Darkunesu K with the Chinese Bombs Away (7:35).
2. Hiroshi Yamato defeated Kikutaro with a School Boy (6:54).
3. Tetsuya Endo defeated Leo Isaka with the Shooting Star Press (12:15).
4. Shigehiro Irie & Daiki Shimomura defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Shimomura pinned Shimatani with an Inside Cradle (14:35).
5. Mad Paulie’s Five Years And A Few Months After His Birth Anniversary Match: Kohei Sato, Yuji Hino & Mad Paulie defeated Kengo Mashimo, Masashi Takeda & Keizo Matsuda when Paulie pinned Matsuda with the Reverse Splash (16:36).
6. MONDAY NIGHT WAR: Minoru Fujita defeated Daisuke Sasaki with the Modified Tombstone Piledriver (24:32).

A first time singles match turned out to be no fun and games at all. Minoru Fujita walked out fully representing his Fujita Pro Wrestling☆School and also had the Super Asia Title from Gatoh Move. Meanwhile Daisuke Sasaki came out still carrying the stolen DDT Universal Title. The atmosphere quickly turned sour when Sasaki ignored Fujita’s offer for a handshake. A furious Fujita then said he would kill Sasaki and went to poke his eyes out. Sasaki fought back by biting his fingers. The struggle and dirty fighting continued throughout and Sasaki became motivated enough to wrestle with his shirt off. He used Yukinori Matsui as a shield at one point but Fujita cut him off on top of the turnbuckles. From there Fujita hit an Avalanche Tombstone for a nearfall. He hit another Tombstone as a counter to La Mistica for another two count. Fujita had to do the Somato and then the “Sayonara” version of the Tombstone to finally put Sasaki down for the three count.

Fujita called his victory over Sasaki a miracle. It is a win he will talk about for the rest of his life. He will carry the achievement with him until his retirement, which will happened somewhere between 4 to 50 years from now. Sasaki complained about Fujita ruining the show. Sasaki was supposed to beat him but he was too strong. Sasaki promised to get stronger and win in the rematch. Fujita then cut him off and said they will never wrestle each other again. Sasaki accepted that and asked to be a teacher in the Fujita Pro Wrestling☆School instead. He then told the fans today was supposed to be Sasaki beating Fujita on the road to winning the Universal Title from Yuki Ueno and then he couldn’t be called a thief anymore. At least the audience had more fun here than at the Olympics today so that cheered him up a little.

Mad Paulie got some spotlight by winning his 5th Anniversary match. He was asked to comment backstage and simply grunted “Arigatou!”

Match #4 was a double reunion of sorts. Soma Takao and Shigehiro Irie were both in the Team Dream Futures stable. Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani used to team together as Gran MilliMeters in DNA. Shimatani took the fall against his former partner but declared today is the beginning of Chapter 3 of his life as a freelancer. Sasaki asked what happened to Chapter 2 and Nobu told him it already came and went.

Tetsuya Endo had wanted to face Leo Isaka for a while now but DDT were never able to put it together. Endo had to take things into his own hands and book the match at a DAMNATION show like this one. Isaka does the Shooting Star Press because he first saw Endo do the move. He got the chance to use it here but Endo dodged it and later hit his version to win. When Sasaki found out Isaka is like a 22 year old version of Endo, he thought about bringing him in as a replacement. He’ll fire Endo when he turns 30 next month and bring in Isaka to be the new Endo.

There were plenty of antics when Hiroshi Yamato fought Kikutaro. A lot of them had Matsui involuntarily involved. During a mix up, Kikutaro tried pinning Matsui with a Small Package. When nothing happened, Yamato rolled Kikutaro over with a School Boy to get the win.

The risk of darkness surrounding the world has been averted for now. At least it is here, I mean. Choun-Shiryu defeated Darkunesu K with the aid of a cone bar. The evil version of Keigo Nakamura was a bit of a nuisance but nothing that Shiryu couldn’t handle in the end.


DDT “MAX BUMP 2021” Results

May 4, 2021

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

3. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya, Chikara & Nabe Yakan (c) defeated Keigo Nakamura, Hideki Okatani, Toui Kojima & Yuya Koroku when Takagi pinned Nakamura with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb (9:17).

4. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Yuji Hino and Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Yuki Iino when Takeshita pinned Iino with the MADMAX (11:26).
5. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Chris Brookes (E/c) defeated Saki Akai (I/c) with the Praying Mantis Bomb (17:38).
*V2 for Chris Brookes. Chris Brookes becomes the 1,507th Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion.
6. Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Yusuke Okada defeated HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Oishi pinned Hirata with the Blue Dahlia (11:42).
7. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) defeated Soma Takao with the WR (25:39).
*V5 for Yuki Ueno.

The empty Korakuen Hall doubleheader concluded with DDT’s evening show. For weeks Soma Takao has been a mixed book by provoking Yuki Ueno while acting like he has no real interest in winning the DDT UNIVERSAL Title. Apparently under the motivation to expose Ueno as a weak champion, Takao told the rest of DAMNATION at ringside not to interfere in the match. Ueno took control at first but when Takao was on the offensive, he poured over his opponent’s head to provoke him. Ueno got revenge when they fought outside the ring. He grabbed the can, poured what was left over Takao’s head and then Moonsaulted off of the entrance gate. Back in the ring the Gin And Tonic was blocked. Even an attempt to counter the WR into the move wouldn’t work. Takao then went for the Reverse Gory Special Bomb but Ueno slipped out of the move and landed on his feet. In the end, Ueno hit the WR to earn his fifth successful defence.

After the match Ueno said he did his best because of the fans watching at home. He even had fun wrestling against Takao and thanked him for the drink. Hisaya Imabayashi asked Ueno who he wanted to defend against next. He chose Akito. It was Akito who chose him to be the assistant manager of DDT Foods. However Akito’s promise to support Ueno in that role rang hollow because he never helped out. They’ve been close workmates for years so it’s time for them to get even closer with the UNIVERSAL Title on the line. Akito was grateful to be nominated but doesn’t think he can compete with Ueno’s generation. Ueno was about to withdraw the challenge when Akito interrupted him. Akito said he couldn’t compete with Ueno but that doesn’t mean he cannot beat him! He accepts the challenge and the title match will take place in Hakata on 29th May.

Kazuki Hirata had a big target in his sights. “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” is coming up and Hirata was going to take out a certain figure important to that show. Did he mean Jun Akiyama? No, he meant Makoto Oishi so he won’t be in Akiyama’s corner for the KO-D Openweight Title match. His threats were ignored so Akiyama and HARASHIMA could start the match. When Hirata did get to fight with Oishi, he immediately tapped out to an Achilles Tendon Hold. Toru Owashi had to distract the referee so the match could continue. Yusuke Okada attacked Hirata’s leg and Akiyama then applied a Sharpshooter for another tap out. Owashi again had to grab the ref’s attention so he wouldn’t see Hirata giving up. The match did end when Oishi pinned Hirata with the Blue Dahlia, a Crucifix Driver style move. Akiyama and HARASHIMA had a stare down afterwards. Backstage Akiyama said he doesn’t want his title match with HARASHIMA to be upstaged by Keiji Muto Vs Naomichi Marufuji.

In the double title match, Chris Brookes came out on top against Saki Akai. Brookes was accompanied to the ring by Masahiro Takanashi while Akai had the rest of Eruption by her side. Akai’s big chance to win was by hitting the Quetzalcoatl. Unfortunately she was low on energy and took too much time to go for the pin, allowing Brookes to kick out. Akai had one more chance by Cradling Brookes out of the Praying Mantis Bomb. Brookes kicked out again, struck her with a knee and hit the Praying Mantis Bomb for the win. The two praised each other after the match and Brookes celebrated holding both the DDT Extreme and Iron Man Heavymetalweight Titles.

Konosuke Takeshita was given a rude welcome back from DAMNATION. Daisuke Sasaki led his team to ambush Eruption & Yuki Iino at first, then turn their focus to The 37KAMIINA. Takeshita and Kazusada Higuchi worked together to get rid of Yuji Hino but Hino wiped them out with a Double Lariat. Tetsuya Endo then hit Higuchi with a Sasuke Special out of the ring. Hino was finally stopped with a Spear from Iino but that left Iino alone against The 37KAMIINA. Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated him with their new double team move the MADMAX. It is a Spike Brainbuster with Takeshita doing the Vertical Drop Brainbuster and Katsumata spiking it down with the Springboard X Factor. After the match Takeshita said he and Katsumata are the dark horses to win the Ultimate Tag League 2021. He also has his tag team with MAO continuing to MAO evolve and a tag team with Ueno ready to take on NOAH.

Speaking of NOAH, there was a surprise appearance by Kenoh after Match #3. He called out Sanshiro Takagi to come down to the ring. When Takagi arrived, Kenoh simply apologised for the recent inconvenience he caused when he caught the Coronavirus. Takagi gave Kenoh the Stunner after he bowed. He said it isn’t like Kenoh to be polite like this. Not when he is writing articles in Shukan Puroresu magazine threatening to not show up at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” in June. Takagi is ordering Kenoh and the rest of Kongo to wrestle on the show. Kenoh started blasting insults at Takagi and said NOAH is better than DDT. Marufuji is better, Takashi Sugiura is better and even Muto is the more exciting champion! Suddenly Yukio Sakaguchi entered the ring to confront Kenoh. The two stared each other down while Takagi announced a full scale DDT Vs Kongo match to take place in Saitama Super Arena!

Takagi has just been part of a KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles defence with the rest of Team Thoroughbred. They defeated a team of DDT rookies in a match that went all over the place. Nabe Yakan attempted the People’s Elbow on Yuya Koroku but missed. Chikara went for the Sabre Chop but hit Takagi with it instead. Hideki Okatani almost had Takagi beaten in his weakened state. Yukio Naya and Toui Kojima had a back and forth. Takagi brought in the Dramatic Dream bike but Keigo Nakamura knocked him off with a Missile Dropkick. Nakamura then stole the bike and crashed into Takagi with it. Takagi intercepted Nakamura with the Stunner and pinned him with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb.

Akito cut down Mad Paulie to size by targeting his knees. One big Lift put Paulie in his back and when Akito applied the Figure 4 Leg Lock, Paulie gave up.

Poor little Kikutaro wasn’t in the mood for any wrestling. Imabayashi explained to Danshoku Dieno and Antonio Honda what happened to the guy recently. He was detained in Hawaii for two days and isn’t allowed enter America again. It was up to Dieno and Honda to cheer him up. The problem is everything they did reminded Kikutaro of his traumatic experience. Imabayashi tried to make him laugh with impersonations but that led to Dieno attacking him. Kikutaro finally snapped back to normal and fought Dieno off. Honda then made a Gongitsune joke but this time it was about a Cockatiel. This made Kikutaro angry because it reminded him of his pet parakeet back in America. He got rid of Honda and made Dieno submit to the Jail Hold while shouting “Don’t say Hawaii!” for the win.

It was announced that the winners of the Ultimate Tag League will be given a 1,000,000 yen prize from the sponsors BLACKOUT.

Mizuki Watase is still recovering from his arm injury and won’t be able to wrestle on the show. He originally targeted the Nagano show as the location for his return match. He will still be in attendance to greet the fans.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “YES! WONDERLAND 2021 ~WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR DREAMS~”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Yuki Arai Debut Match: Maki Itoh & Arisu Endo Vs Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Mirai Maiumi & Suzume
3. Princess Of Princess Title: Rika Tatsumi (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

A ring full of idols will welcome Yuki Arai to the wrestling business. Arai already named Maki Itoh as a future opponent she wanted to wrestle. She also sees Arisu Endo as her closest senpai so it makes sense for those two to be her opponents. Miu Watanabe wants to bridge the gap between idols and wrestlers which makes her the perfect person for Arai to tag with. Arai promised she will do her best to get everyone’s approval. That kind of attitude doesn’t impress Itoh. She’ll see what Arai is like in the ring but she’s not excited about it.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Akito Vs Mad Paulie
2. 3 Way Match To Bring Back The Smile On Kikutaro’s Face After All He’s Been Through: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Kikutaro

6. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Saki Akai (I/c)
7. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Soma Takao

Did you enjoy Konosuke Takeshita’s quick stay in AEW? I bet he’ll go back eventually. The timing suggests he is back in Japan now and self isolating before he can return to action in DDT. Waiting for him is his friends in The 37KAMIINA for a massive free for all against DAMNATION and Eruption plus former ally Yuki Iino.

The recent incident in America caused Kikutaro to lose his smile. It’s up to Danshoku Dieno and Antonio Honda to bring it back!

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

Just to remind everyone, the leader of Junretsu is Makoto Oishi, not Jun Akiyama. However Oishi hasn’t achieved the results that a man with his position should be getting. He can spin that around by winning the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Akiyama right before the Ultimate Tag League 2021 begins. What motivates Akiyama to win is so he can appear on the cover of Weekly Pro-Wrestling again with a cool picture this time. The cover of the current issue shows his head stuck in Danshoku Dieno’s tights and he finds it embarrassing. HARASHIMA is excited to defend the tag titles in Niigata for the first time ever. Yuji Okabayashi is excited to fight against the mighty Akiyama & Oishi. Both Akiyama and HARASHIMA will not let the result of this match shake their confidence going into “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”.

4. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT
5. Union MAX Title: Takumi Tsukamoto (c) Vs Masato Kamino

A big test for Takato Nakano fresh off of his match with Isami Kodaka. If it is his time to step up a level then beating FUMA would do that for him.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “YES! WONDERLAND 2021 ~WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR DREAMS~”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Yuki Arai Debut Match: Yuki Arai Vs X

This week Tokyo Sports reported that SKE48 idol Yuki Arai was going to attend this weekend’s Tokyo Joshi Pro show in Korakuen Hall. Arai, who in 2018 wrestled a match in DDT and is a former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion, was expected to announce she was joining TJPW to become an active pro wrestler and her “re-debut” match was taking place on 4th May. TJPW pushed their announcement to today and confirmed the news is true.

Arai’s previous involvement with pro wrestling outside of DDT was with the Tofu Pro Wrestling project where she used the name Bubbly Arai. When she had her match in DDT, Sanshiro Takagi was impressed with her performance and has held discussions with SKE48 management since then over getting her to continue wrestling. Arai wants to work as both an idol and a pro wrestler so for the moment her deal is to wrestle one match a month while Miyu Yamashita helps trains her. She is currently preparing her theme music and wrestling outfit. One of her goals is to avenge losing the Iron Man Title to Maki Itoh. Also attending the show is another SKE48 idol, Jurina Matsui. She will be there to support Arai.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Yusuke Okada Vs HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata
2. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya, Chikara & Nabe Yakan (c) Vs X, X, X & X
3. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Saki Akai (I/c)
4. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Soma Takao

Yuki Ueno is taking it personally when Soma Takao calls him a weak champion. He’s beaten some amazing wrestlers in his title reign and he feels bad for them when Takao pinned him at Korakuen last weekend. It’s a frustrating feeling but it made him think. It would be frustrating for Takao is if he loses to the “weak champion” in a main event championship match at Korakuen Hall. So Ueno convinced Hisaya Imabayashi to make the DDT UNIVERSAL Title match the main event of “MAX BUMP 2021”. Takao complained and said he should be fighting the weak champion in the dark match. He agreed to it anyway because he thinks Ueno will only nominate weak replacements if he turned it down. He got under Ueno’s skin further by pouring a drink over his head during the press conference.

The double title match will not have any extra stipulations added to it. Chris Brookes decided it will be a normal singles match after he thought about Saki Akai’s challenge to him last week. He found out Akai last had a singles title match five years ago and she only got the shot by winning a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament. He has a lot of respect for her and wants to show it by facing her in a regular rules match. Akai understands she might lose this match 99 times out of 100 but she will take that chance to become a double champion.

Kikutaro will be on the show. He had trouble travelling to America last month using an ESTA instead of his work visa because it expired. The immigration officer checking him believed he was trying to enter the country illegally to work. Kikutaro claims he was only visiting to sort out a matter with his home in Las Vegas. The result was Kikutaro getting detained for two days and then deported back to Japan. He thinks he was discriminated against and is trying to clear his name through the Japanese Embassy. For now he has to stay in Japan.

DDT “ULTIMATE TAG LEAGUE 2021 IN KORAKUEN HALL!!”, 09/05/2021

3. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda
4. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino

Naomi Yoshimura gets his wish. Yuki Ueno will be one of his opponents in his return match. DISASTER BOX will be further represented with HARASHIMA involved. There’s no hard feelings over Ueno leaving the unit for The 37KAMIINA. At least I don’t think there is. MAO will do something to annoy them probably.

9. Special Tag Match ~Dramatic Dream~: Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA defeated Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi when Takeshita pinned Higuchi with the German Suplex (27:14).

Referee Yukinori Matsui celebrated his 25th anniversary in the business with a special show featuring DDT and Osaka talent. The main event featured Shigehiro Irie’s first match back in DDT since “DDT IS COMING TO AMERICA” in April. His interactions with Konosuke Takeshita stood out in the match. Takeshita gave Irie a Brainbuster on the entry ramp. Later on Irie cut off Takeshita’s Fable by hitting him with the Traffic Accident Tackle in mid-air! HARASHIMA got rid of Irie by hitting a Flying Double Knee Strike to the outside. Takeshita was able to hit the Fable on Kazusada Higuchi. He then pinned him with the German Suplex.

Takeshita said after the match he did not want to shake hands with Higuchi or Irie. Especially Irie because he was the one to end his record breaking KO-D Openweight Title reign over a year ago. However fighting him today reminded Takeshita that Irie is a rival and what he would like is to fight him again someday. Irie said he is happy with how much everyone has grown since he left DDT. He came here today to celebrate Matsui’s career and take another group photo with him.

The semi-main event was a scrap between Kaientai DX and the Kishiwada Brigade. A ringside brawl left Dick Togo & MEN’S Teioh both bleeding from their heads. Togo and Magnitude Kishiwada then brought in chairs and took turns hitting each other over the head with them. Kishiwada put Togo through a table with a Diving Body Press to the outside. Buffalo didn’t come out in one piece either. His mask was torn up and he too was busted open by Teioh. A collision between him and Kishiwada led to Togo getting the pin on Buffalo with a School Boy. The result angered Kishiwada so much that he gave his partner a Lariat before leaving the ring.

Kikutaro misunderstood what the show was and thought it was supposed to be Matsui’s funeral.

Matsui spent so many days putting this show together that Super Sasadango Machine wanted to give him a break. So Danshoku Dieno became the referee for Match #3. Sasadango went to give Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi the F5 but Hiroshi fell on top of him and immediately pinned him. Hisaya Imabayashi demanded a restart with Matsui as the ref again. The match went on as normal. Well as normal as a match with this lot could be.

Kuishinbo Kamen sent a video message apologising for missing the show because of an injury.

For years now Gouma Ryu and Banana Senga have been rivals in the court. They get along when they are away from the criminal justice system so let’s see how they work as a tag team.

Jun Masaoka doesn’t want to get along with anybody but he is pretty much a part of the current BASARA rookie generation. Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino have been teaming together anyway. A third partner for them wouldn’t hurt.

DDT “SOUKEN HOLDINGS PRESENTS MAX BUMP 2019”, 28/04/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Pokotan (w/ Danshoku Dieno)

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

For his first KO-D Openweight Title defence, Tetsuya Endo has chosen Makoto Oishi to be his opponent because he is guaranteed to beat him. That was proven over the weekend when Endo submitted Oishi in the main event of Sunday’s show. Oishi thinks he has a chance because he could outsmart Endo with his wrestling knowledge. Endo thinks he has everything in his arsenal to beat Oishi anyway no matter how Oishi uses his head when they wrestle.

There is a lot of craziness surrounding the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Konosuke Takeshita challenged the new champions DAMNATION because he wants to get revenge for losing the KO-D Title to Daisuke Sasaki in New York. The Moonlight Express want to get their rematch because they are the former champions. Newcomers Ricky Starks & Mike Rollins saw an opportunity to get involved in the title picture and also want to be in the match. So we are getting a 4 Way Match for the belts. Now there is a new bump in the road for ALL OUT because it was announced today that Shunma Katsumata is out of action for an undetermined amount of time with a left ankle injury.

The mascot Pokotan wrestles in a DDT ring for the first time since its debut at “JUDGEMENT 2019”.

Thunder Rosa makes her Tokyo Joshi Pro debut here.

3. Special Single Match: Aja Kong Vs Maki Itoh
4. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa
5. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima

With 10 defences under her belt and two championships over her shoulders, Miyu Yamashita has been looking mighty unbeatable lately. Yuka Sakazaki has been the same and both of them have more overseas bookings they’re looking forward too. Sadly for Shoko Nakajima when it comes to the most established power trio of Tokyo Joshi she’s been feeling left out. Well no more! Nakajima has challenged Yamashita for the TOKYO Princess Title at Korakuen Hall. Will Anguirus topple Godzilla?

Misao is constantly telling everyone that Hyper Misao is dead and never coming back. Rika Tatsumi doesn’t believe her and is willing to fight her to prove the superhero is still alive in there somewhere. Miu Watanabe has been constantly fighting and losing to NEO Biishiki-gun ever since Misao joined the unit. With the Up Up Girls now down one member and her other partners currently taking separate paths, she gets another chance to stand up to Sakisama.

Osaka City Ozo Community Center

2. 3 Way Tag Match: MAO & Asuka defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani and Antonio Honda & Ricky Starks when MAO pinned Shimatani after a German Suplex & Jackknife Pin Combo (8:56).
3. Mike Bailey defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Ultima Weapon (11:46).
4. Naomi Yoshimura defeated Mike Rollins with the Shonenba (9:57).
5. Keisuke Okuda Marunage Match: Kota Umeda & Keisuke Okuda defeated Magnitude Kishiawada & Yuki Iino when Okuda pinned Iino with a Buzzsaw Kick (11:20).
6. DISASTER BOX Vs Shuten-dōji!: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Iino when Sakaguchi pinned Iino with the God’s Right Knee (13:32).
7. I Love It! Osaka Specialty Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Makoto Oishi when Endo submitted Oishi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (17:56).

Tetsuya Endo looks like he is getting what he wants from Makoto Oishi. That is an easy opponent he can beat all the time. Endo made Oishi submit to the Yurikamome Hold then taunted him for “wrestling with his head”. Endo says pro wrestling is the opposite, it is using everything except your head! He reminded everyone that there are two types of people in the world, losers and the KO-D Openweight Champion Tetsuya Endo!

Mad Paulie continues to require reading hentai novels in order to keep calm during matches.

Keisuke Okuda thanked Magnitude Kishiwada for taking part in his Marunage match. Since Okuda will be a freelancer starting in May, he would like to have another match with Kishiwada anywhere in Osaka.

The most horrible alliance in DDT has been created. Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto are now a tag team! They along with Toru Owashi were able to beat Sanshiro Takagi, Mizuki Watase & Yuni even when Yuni demanded the match to be held under Lucha Libre rules. Donaruto hit the McShake Bomb on Watase then Hirata hit the newly named GO! GO! Splash for the three count. After the match Hirata wanted to know something about Donaruto. Back when Hirata was living in Kobe, he shared a one room apartment with a weird person for 6 months. Was that person Donaruto before he transformed into what he is now? Hirata is happy to be reunited with that guy buy he hates being vulgar. Donaruto told Hirata that they shared a dream together in that dirty room. They can make that dream come true by winning the KO-D Tag Team Titles! Also Donaruto bought 100 tickets for the DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA” show in June that he can sell to people if they team together. He’s already sold 15 of them. Takagi promised the two will get their tag title match on 2nd June if they are able to sell the remaining tickets before then.

It was announced that the Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro match scheduled for Yukinori Matsui’s 25th Anniversary show in May has been cancelled because Kamen is injured. Antonio Honda offered to take Kamen’s place and be Kikutaro’s new opponent. For him that match is more valuable than money or health.

DDT promised an authentic show for their visit to New York this week. They delivered on all ends and then some. In the main event Daisuke Sasaki avenged his defeat to Konosuke Takeshita at Sumo Hall by beating him to win back the KO-D Openweight Title! It went back and forth with Takeshita catching a dive outside the ring and turning it into a Brainbuster. In return Sasaki did a Diving Elbow Drop out of the ring onto Takeshita in the front row. Takeshita almost won with the Fable but Sasaki grabbed Yukinori Matsui to disrupt the flow. Takeshita leap frogged over the ref but Sasaki kicked him in between the legs as he landed. Sasaki hit another low blow and used the Sasaki Hurricanrana to grab the victory.

Sasaki celebrated the title win with Tetsuya Endo and Soma Takao in his company. He said “This is my championship!” But then something happened. Sasaki noticed that Endo was busy playing with his Right To Challenge Gauntlet during his speech so he knocked it out of Endo’s hands. Endo picked it back up and suddenly hit Sasaki with a Lariat. He grabbed the microphone, held up the Gauntlet and said “This is now.” Endo cashed in the Gauntlet to get his title match! Sasaki had some fight left in him but after four minutes, Endo hit the Shooting Star Press and shockingly became the new KO-D Champion! When the dust settled, Endo had something important to tell Sasaki… “Charisma, I’m sorry!” He explained that with so many fans here to see the show and some of them being pretty blonde haired women he couldn’t resist taking this chance to win the title. This belt is the symbol of DDT and Endo feels proud to win it for the first time. Sasaki accepted Endo’s apology. Endo wants New York to become his second home and promised everyone they will come back. “Remember us!”

DDT came up with a solution to any possible trouble Danshoku Dieno was going to cause with his behaviour. It was so genius in its simplicity. The announcer simply told fans to raise their hands if they wanted Dieno to kiss them during his entrance and many people did. Antonio Honda got to tell his Gon The Fox story in English. It was about Gon visiting the Empire State Building only to discover it was the Empire Big Dick. Dieno got “We Want Ass” chants as he fought off Joey Ryan & Royce Isaacs while the back of his tights were pulled down. It led to the big battle between Ryan’s dick and Dieno’s ass. Honda stuck his Gongitsune fingers into Dieno’s backside to charge them up but Dieno forced those fingers into Honda’s eyes. Ryan then stuck a lollipop into Dieno’s ass, placed it in Honda’s mouth and Super Kicked him for the win.

Both Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh were popular with the fans in their match. Yamashita beat Itoh after hitting a Back Spin Kick and the Crash Rabbit Heat. She wanted to shake Itoh’s hand after the match but Itoh gave her the middle finger.

The weapons for the Weapon Rumble included Antonio Honda doing his Hulk Hogan impersonation (which got booed to hell and back), plastic cases, a trash can, a bicycle, a box of “educational toy blocks” (we can’t say the brand name for legal reasons), a toilet and Chinsuke Nakamura. The ending came when Sanshiro Takagi put MAO through the plastic cases with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb.

Shigehiro Irie made his first appearance for DDT in six months to be part of the 3 Way Tag Match. He and Jason Kincaid reunited RENEGADES for the match. Ethan Page threw his weight around too. But amongst the chaos HARASHIMA hit Akito with the Buzzsaw Kick and finished him off with the Somato to win the match for himself & Kazusada Higuchi.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title had a very busy night. During the show opening introductions Mr. HAKU brought out Saki Akai to explain the concept of the title to any new fans in attendance. Makoto Oishi ran out and cradled Akai to win the belt. Later the Rumble happened with Oishi now as the defending champion. Kikutaro was stopped from entering the match by the ring doctor because he had too high blood pressure. Colt Cabana was more interested in getting a kiss from Akai than wrestling her. Mizuki Watase piled several wrestlers into the corner and hit the Coast To Coast Dropkick on them. Yuu was the surprise entrant and she threw around everyone with her judo throws. Oishi eliminated Akai and Yuu but his momentum was cut short when Yoshihiko grappled him into a Half Crab to submit him. Kazuki Hirata countered Yoshihiko’s Reincarnation into a cradle to win the match. The result meant Hirata won both the Iron Man Title and Yoshihiko’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet. However Saki Akai got back into the ring and gave Hirata the Quetzalcoatl to win back the Iron Man Title. Hirata still holds the Gauntlet. At the end of the show Akai was chased back out to the ring by a bunch of wrestlers. The title changed hands to Oishi then Hirata then Itoh then finally Dieno to close out the show.

In the opener DAMNATION were victorious over Shuten-dōji with Endo getting Masahiro Takanashi to give up to the Modified Yurikamome Hold.
