7. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Yuji Hino defeated HARASHIMA with the Fuckin’ BOMB (24:49).

The King Of DDT field has been cut down from eight to four after today. The hardest fought match in Round 2 was the main event where Yuji Hino eliminated HARASHIMA after almost 25 minutes. Hino took everything HARASHIMA threw at him and asked for more. The regular Somato couldn’t work so HARASHIMA went for the Swan Dive version. Hino blocked him before he could pull it off and attempted the Fuckin’ BOMB only for HARASHIMA to escape. HARASHIMA used Leg Kicks and Buzzsaw Kicks to break Hino down for one more Somato. But Hino got the better of him and hit the Fuckin’ BOMB to win. The two gave each other a fist bump after the match as a show of respect.

Daisuke Sasaki has found a winning formula for the tournament. Cheat like hell! Mad Paulie pulled the referee out of the ring when it looked like Jun Akiyama was about to beat Sasaki in minutes. Akiyama fought him off but was vulnerable to a Low Blow. Akiyama countered the Sasaki Hurricanrana into a Power Bomb and went for the Running Knee Strike. Sasaki dodged it, hit another Low Blow when Akiyama stopped himself from colliding with the ref and then rolled up Akiyama for the upset.

In the battle of The 37KAMIINA, handshakes were replaced with the “NeppoWER!!” pose. MAO dug deep into his box of tricks and used Mike Bailey’s Ultima Weapon move to get ahead. Konosuke Takeshita rolled away from the Cannonball 450 and hit some Zahi knee strikes to try and put MAO down for good. MAO kept kicking out of moves until he finally succumbed to the Modified Chickenwing Facelock. Takeshita asked for a handshake after the match and got the NeppoWER pose instead. Backstage MAO said the match will make The 37KAMIINA more united than ever. He will do his best to change his image from the slapstick guy of the group to the strong slapstick guy of the group.

Last year’s winner is out of the tournament! In a rematch from the 2020 semi-final, Kazusada Higuchi gets his revenge by beating Tetsuya Endo in the latest chapter of their rivalry. The use of the Brain Claw was the difference maker here. The move helped Higuchi break out of the Yurikamome Hold. Endo freed himself to go for one last gasp but Higuchi grabbed him in the Brain Claw again and hit a Twisting Brain Claw Slam to get the three count.

At the end of the show the semi-finalists took part in a lottery to determine who will face who in the final rounds on 4th July. Daisuke Sasaki and Konosuke Takeshita both pulled out blue balls so they will fight each other. That left Yuji Hino and Kazusada Higuchi staring each other down to set up the other semi-final. Backstage, Takeshita said it doesn’t matter if he is in good shape or not. He knows he has to stay alert against Sasaki. The match will come down to luck. Sasaki admitted that his version of King’s Road didn’t work today but he’ll use it to crush Takeshita. Higuchi calls Hino a high wall to climb over. He has to break through him because Higuchi never makes it past the semi-finals. Hino didn’t have much of substance to say because he was tired after the main event. He’ll be happy is Sasaki wins and they meet in an all DAMNATION final. But he would like to face Takeshita in the final too.

The 3 Way Tag match had its wacky stuff happening. Nobuhiro Shimatani kept shouting “I’m Nobu!” in response to Shunma Katsumata doing the NeppoWER pose. They then teamed up to double team Naomi Yoshimura when he tried to stop the both of them. Soma Takao picked his moments to Double Stomp opponents and slam Shimatani onto them. Akito grabbed a lot of limbs to twist people into each other. Yuki Ueno convinced Yoshimura to work together again for a Nautilus reunion. When Ueno was done with it he hit Yoshimura with a Missile Dropkick to end the alliance. Yoshimura knocked him out of the ring with a Lariat and left it clear for Akito to submit Shimatani.

Danshoku Dieno announced his goal today was to beat Yusuke Okada so he can fully take over “Big Daddy” Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s restaurant. Then the customers will get to suck meat instead of eating it. After Dieno got his hands on Okada during the match, Big Daddy entered the ring to rescue his friend. Dieno grabbed him and attempted to do the Danshoku Driver but Okada stopped it. Okada went to give Dieno the Lip Lock but Dieno ducked and Big Daddy got it instead. Dieno then pinned Okada with the Gaydo Clutch. After the match Okada told Big Daddy that he will continue to do his best as a DDT wrestler. Big Daddy told him you win some, you lose some. He also admitted Okada is a surprisingly good kisser.

Before the Battle Royal began, some of the wrestlers found a mystery drink in the locker room with a note attached to it. The note said it was a “pick me up” from Mad Paulie. Only Antonio Honda drank it but he said it tasted great. Yukio Sakaguchi also grabbed the bottle when nobody was looking. The effects of the drink were revealed when Mad Anton walked out instead of Honda. Kazuki Hirata won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title from Shinya Aoki by eliminating him early in the match. Hirata was eliminated along with Paulie and Anton when all three of them pulled each other out of the ring to the floor. The ring was empty at this point so it did not count as a title change. There was one last entrant though. Yukio Sakaguchi walked out with a face like Mad Paulie and he won the match by default. He gave a victory speech afterwards but only said “Po.”

Hirata escaped from the Paulies but was chased back into the ring later in the show. Hirata fought off Paulie, Anton and Sakaguchi then celebrated with the Iron Man Title. Suddenly, Shinya Aoki returned with his face also looking like Mad Paulie. Aoki choked out Hirata to win back the title then celebrated with the rest of the Paulies.

The pre-show match mixed together heavyweights with the rookies. Yuki Iino and Yukio Naya cancelled each other out so it came down to Hideki Okatani and Yuya Koroku to break the deadlock. Koroku got a nearfall with a Backslide Pin but Okatani got him in the end with the Northern Lights Suplex.

Yoshiaki Yatsu attended the show to find out who he will team with for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles match on 4th July. Hisaya Imabayashi told him that Hiroshi Yamato & Akito both offered to be on the team because they competed in amateur wrestling for the Junior Olympics. Keigo Nakamura then entered the ring asking to join because he too competed in that competition in high school. He was eliminated in the first round but he wants to take on the challenge side by side with the other “Olympians”. Yatsu agreed to team with all three of them and they will be Team (Junior) Olympia!


Additional Attack Tomorrow, Dieno Takes Over Big Daddy’s Restaurant, Beer Garden-Like

7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Tomorrow is Miyu Yamashita’s chance to become the first Double Princess Champion in TJPW history. She was briefly a double champion in 2019 when she held the Princess Of Princess Title and SHINE Title at the same time. But Sakisama has been one of her impossible mountains to climb for almost her entire career. It was only recently she made some progress on that thanks to teaming with Maki Itoh this year. Targeting Mei Saint-Michel may be the right plan to win. If the champions win though and it’s Sakisama standing on top, everything is in place for her to do something she has never done before. Maybe Yamashita won’t be the first Double Princess Champion after all…

This week Yusuke Okada and Hisaya Imabayashi went to visit Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s steak restaurant for a meal. They noticed something was odd when they were only given sausages no matter what they ordered. Okada confronted the chef only to find out it was Danshoku Dieno in disguise! Okada then discovered that his friend Hayashishita was trapped in the restroom with a big, thick sausage in his mouth. Okada freed him and they chased Dieno out of the restaurant. The final straw came when they found Dieno changed the restaurant sign, renaming the restaurant into something vulgar. Hayashishita said he is usually a forgiving man but he will not stand for this! He gave Okada an inspiring speech and encouraged him to beat Dieno at Korakuen Hall. Okada vowed to win for Big Daddy!

7. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 1G: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Naomi Yoshimura
8. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 1H: Tetsuya Endo Vs Chris Brookes

The King Of DDT begins tomorrow and a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is up for grabs. The major DDT singles champions are all entering the tournament. Jun Akiyama has said if he wins then he will nominated Sanshiro Takagi as the No. 1 Contender. Konosuke Takeshita won’t let him do that because it is his intention to eventually win the KO-D Title back from Akiyama. Everyone is gunning after Akiyama though. Last year’s winner Tetsuya Endo wants to make a big turnaround for the second half of 2021 and recapture all of his glory from last year. He needs to get past Chris Brookes first and their singles matches in the past have all been too close to call. Shunma Katsumata also has a recent pinfall over the champion which is why Akiyama nominated him to be his 1st Round opponent.

The rest of the field have their stories to tell too. Makoto Oishi has a lot of confidence because his Fujiyama Knee Lock made Yukio Sakaguchi submit. HARASHIMA wants a rematch with Akiyama. Yuji Hino is interested in finding out how strong Sakaguchi can be when he gets angry. Soma Takao is interested in the cash prize. MAO is falling behind the rest of The 37KAMIINA so he does not want to become the weakest member of the group. Akito wants to advance past the semi-final stage he reached last year. Daisuke Sasaki is the only one without any motivation. He saw Yuki Ueno pin Kaito Kiyomiya and doesn’t like his own chances of doing any better. Ueno feels he cannot lose while he holds the DDT UNIVERSAL Title. There is a race to the top forming between DNA alumni Naomi Yoshimura and Kazusada Higuchi.

4. Team MAKAI Vs 2AW Full Scale Battle: Shota & Asuka Vs Shiori Asahi & Ayame Sasamura
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE Vs Yuu Yamagata & Moeka Haruhi

At the last Ganbare☆Joshi show, Yuu Yamagata defeated both HARUKAZE and Yuna Manase then swore never to come back. After months of trying to make contact, Manase disguised herself as an UberEats driver to find Yamagata’s home and confront her to get a rematch at the next Ganjo show. Yamagata didn’t want to create noise in front of her neighbours so she met with Manase at the parking lot to discuss it. She eventually agreed to come back for another match. She will team with Moeka Haruhi to face both Manase & HARUKAZE in a tag bout.

A bunch of outside help is filling up the card. 2AW, MAKAI, Gatoh Move and Miyako Matsumoto all have their own ideas for what should be on a joshi wrestling card.

DDT “KING OF DDT 2021 2ND ROUND”, 20/06/2021

5. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1E Vs Winner Of Match 1F
6. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1G Vs Winner Of Match 1H

It turns out that Yusuke Okada and Kiyoshi Hayashishita are friends in real life and Okada promised a “Big Name X” for Hayashishita to see him wrestle in person. That big name is Danshoku Dieno. This is Okada’s idea because fighting Dieno means he can now truly call himself a DDT wrestler. When the three of them met for the contract signing, Dieno gave Hayashishita the Lip Lock and made him faint. Okada swore revenge and promised Hayashishita will be there to see it!

Yatsu accepts the offer but wants to do more than a Battle Royal. Takagi came up with the idea to give Yatsu a shot at the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles. DDT will provide Yatsu his three partners. He’d like to have a team of Olympic quality wrestlers but will be glad to get people with amateur wrestling backgrounds.

Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
1. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs X

As soon as Atsushi Onita found out that a second ring would be set up for his Current Blast Death Match, he got in touch with DDT. Onita told them it takes time to set up that kind of match so he wants it to be the very first match of the day, taking place on the pre-show! DDT agreed to his request and plan to move the match over to the main wrestling ring. There will still be two rings set up on the day with something planned for the second ring. DDT just hasn’t figured out what they want to do with it yet.

Spectators are still required to wear masks, stay clean, take their temperatures and have contact information on hand if positive cases do happen.

Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno see their match against Kaito Kiyomiya & Yoshiki Inamura as a battle between the modern generation of DDT and NOAH. Takeshita wants to win the match by a large margin while Ueno wants to prove DDT’s style of wrestling is strong because it is fun. Takeshita is treating the match like it is the main event.

The DDT Vs Kongo 12-Man Tag looks to be focusing on Yukio Sakaguchi and Kenoh. The rest of the DDT squad also take issue with Kenoh’s opinions about their company but Sakaguchi more than any other wants to face off with him. Sanshiro Takagi said the DDT team are all united. Akito threw out a jab by saying Kenoh is the only one out of Kongo that is talking and he’s not convinced that Kenoh wants to be in the match.

Yuki Arai admits to being nervous going into her second pro wrestling match. This will be the first one in front of fans. Maki Itoh is calling her team Saitama Itoh Respect Army 2021. Her partners Yuki Kamifuku & Marika Kobashi have been secretly working for her for the last six months. They seem to be okay with it because it is keeping them employed during the pandemic. Either that or they’ve been brainwashed.

DDT “KING OF DDT 2021 2ND ROUND”, 20/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Saki Akai Vs Antonio Honda Vs Toru Owashi Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. Steak Kuiyagare Presents Special Single Match: Yusuke Okada Vs Big Name X (Special Witness: Kiyoshi Hayashishita)

5. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1E Vs Winner Of Match 1F
6. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1G Vs Winner Of Match 1H

A steak restaurant is sponsoring a match between Yusuke Okada and a mystery opponent. Why is this such a big deal? Well the restaurant belongs to “Big Daddy” Kiyoshi Hayashishita and he will be at ringside to watch the match. If that name sounds familiar it’s because Kiyoshi is the father of Utami Hayashishita from Stardom. To say she comes from a big family is the understatement of the century.
