7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Puma King Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura

A few injuries during the week alters tomorrow’s card. The light one is Sanshiro Takagi. He injured his right eye and is missing this show. He will be getting it further examined next week but hopes to be clear for Masahiro Takanashi’s show on the 15th. Gorgeous Matsuno took it upon himself to replace Takagi in Match #2.

The bad injury happened to Kazusada Higuchi during yesterday’s “UNIVERSE.1” show. He tore his right PCL and has no timetable for a return. He does not need surgery and will be aiming to recover as soon as possible. Ryota Nakatsu takes Higuchi’s place in Match #3.

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2019 ~THE PROMISED NATURE LAND~”, 08/09/2019
Yamanashi Natureland Om

1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Antonio Honda Vs Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno Vs Shuichiro Katsumura, Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa

Sadly this means Higuchi will be missing the campsite match as well. Yukio Sakaguchi replaces him here. Also SAGAT is sick with the flu so he is being substituted with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

BASARA “BASARA 105 ~THE 2nd FOX PRINCE~”, 14/09/2019
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Masato Kamino

Takato Nakano approached Sento Minzoku asking for a UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. He gathered together Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano to be his partners.

Hopefully SAGAT will be well again in time for his Last Man Standing match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “KFC 2 DAYS ’19 ~TEMPLE OF THE SUN~”, 15/09/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Nodoka Tenma Vs Himawari Unagi Vs Pom Harajuku
2. Yuki Aino & YUMI Vs Raku & Mahiro Kiryu
3. Rika Tatsumi Vs Suzume
4. Miyu Yamashita Vs Mirai Maiumi
5. Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa
6. Natsumi Maki, Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Yuna Manase, Maki Itoh & Mina Shirakawa
7. Sakisama Vs Yuki Kamifuku
8. Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) Vs Misao

With the new 2nd Gen belt over her shoulder, Shoko Nakajima is now even more motivated to defend the Princess Title. Her next challenger is the wrestler who has by far progressed the most among the roster this year, Misao. Ever since Misao shed her superhero persona and joined NEO Biishiki-gun she has gone from strength to strength.

I wonder if Sakisama holds a grudge with Yuki Kamifuku over her attempt to join NEO Biishiki-gun last year? Kamifuku joined the unit as an apprentice last May then quit after two weeks when she figured out it was a bad fit for her.

Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa is a match to watch out for. The two members of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have developed so much in the ring this year and part of the reason why is they branched out to other tag teams outside of their unit (Momoiro Sparkling for Watanabe and Pandemic Boo-Boo for Noa). Gotta be honest here, I think Raku is in danger of never catching up to them.

DDT “DRAMATIC SAINT INN☆ONISAN 2019”, 16/09/2019
Okayama Saint Inn Kurashiki

1. OPG Offer Match: Gota Ihashi, Great Mutiger & Yunosuke Vs Takuya Yamauchi, Tomoya Uehara & Scoville
2. Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Hiroshi Yamato
3. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dieno & Yukio Sakaguchi
4. Cody Hall & Antonio Honda Vs Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya
5. Mizuki Watase Marunage Match ~ Advent Of God!! Falls Count Anywhere In Kurashiki Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match: Mizuki Watase, MAO & Asuka Vs Sanshiro Takagi, Kazusada Higuchi & Shunma Katsumata
6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Akito
7. Kurashiki Specialty Beauty Area Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura

HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo continue their feud. The danger here is they could do so much damage to each other that there won’t be much left for Jiro Kuroshio to deal with at the end of the month.

No word yet on who will replace Higuchi in the Marunage match.

Gota Ihashi gets his Oretachi Pro Wrestling buddies into the opener.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “KFC 2 DAYS ’19 ~DESERT MOON~”, 16/09/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Mahiro Kiryu Vs Mirai Maiumi

4. Sakisama & Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi & Suzume
5. Yuka Sakazaki, Yuki Aino & Pom Harajuku Vs Miu Watanabe, Hikari Noa & Raku
6. Shoko Nakajima & Mizuki Vs Dalys & Nodoka Tenma
7. International Princess Title: Natsumi Maki (c) Vs Yuna Manase

Natsumi Maki and Yuna Manase kind of have a sisterly relationship going back to their early years in Actwres girl’Z (am I allowed to mention that place?). Manase pinned Maki in Maki’s first match since becoming the International Princess Champion so obviously Manase gets the first shot.

CMLL luchadora Dalys makes her Tokyo Joshi debut. The 10 year veteran from Panama is being thrown right into the top card mix.

DDT “DRAMATIC OMUTA SKYSCRAPER 2019”, 17/09/2019

7. Omuta Specialty! The Moon Came Out The Moon Came Out! Barisugo Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuto Aijima Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Yukio Sakaguchi

I guess Higuchi is missing the heavyweight 3 Way too.

Yuki Iino is done filming his rugby TV show. He comes back to go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Akito.

Asuka, Hiroshi Yamato and Cody Hall will be on the show.

Other: Kenny Omega, Riho, Jiro Kuroshio, Chris Brookes, Asuka, Hiroshi Yamato, Yasu Urano, Minoru Fujita, Miss Mongolia

To really make this an Ultimate Party, Konosuke Takeshita wants to defend the KO-D Openweight Title against the DDT Extreme Champion in a double title match! Right now the Extreme Champ in Jiro Kuroshio. All he has to do is get past HARASHIMA and Endo in the 3 Way Match. Easier said than done.

5. O-40 Title – Recycling Death Match: Sanshiro Takagi (c) defeated Ken Ohka with the Himawari Bomb onto a plastic case (12:40).
*V1 for Sanshiro Takagi.
6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Ishikawa pinned Yoshimura with the Fire Thunder (17:08).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) defeated Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted Kuroshio with the Crossover Face Lock (17:22).
*V6 for DAMNATION.
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Shinya Aoki by TKO with the Walls Of Takeshita (16:45).
*V2 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Just like in their last singles match, Konosuke Takeshita decided to wrestle barefoot against Shinya Aoki. Takeshita went for the Walls Of Takeshita but Aoki positioned himself into a Triangle Choke. Takeshita powered out of the move by lifting up and slamming down Aoki. He then reapplied the Walls Of Takeshita and kept the pressure until Aoki went unresponsive. Yukinori Matsui stopped the match and declared Takeshita the winner.

Takeshita expressed his sincere gratitude to Aoki after the match. He was then told that the next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be at Sumo Hall on 3rd November. No challenger was decided yet so Takeshita had an idea. Since “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is bringing together all of the DDT brands, he wants to find out who the absolute best wrestler in DDT is. That means the KO-D Champion and the DDT Extreme Champion should face off in a double title match! Hisaya Imabayashi reminded him that the current Extreme Champion Jiro Kuroshio is defending the title against HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in a 3 Way Match on 29th September. They confirmed that the winner and champion coming out of that match will face Takeshita in Sumo Hall.

Sadly for Kuroshio he didn’t add the KO-D Tag Team Titles to his possessions. He and his “brother” Kazusada Higuchi were defeated by DAMNATION. Higuchi got rid of Soma Takao and left Ikemen to seal the deal. Kuroshio blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s La Mistica Cross Facelock and turned it into a Tombstone Piledriver. However Ikemen’s Moonsault ended badly when Sasaki caught him and applied the Crossover Face Lock for the submission win. Akito came out and challenged DAMNATION for the Tag Titles on 29th September. His partner is the “TV Star” Yuki Iino! He has been away from wrestling the last few months working on a TV drama called No Side Game.

Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are now called Nautilus. The team impressed Shuji Ishikawa, he called them amazing talents. He also likes tagging with Tetsuya Endo and suggested the idea of the two of them facing off against Sasaki & Takao sometime.

The Recycling Death Match featured plenty of items from DDT’s history. A lot of it was trash left around in storage but some of the items do have some history to them. There was the dojo’s vacuum cleaner from 2015, an office heater from 2016, plastic cases from this year, the bear traps from the 2018 Super Sasadango Machine Vs Jiro Kuroshio match, 200 empty beer cans that they never threw out after one of this year’s earlier Beer Garden shows, Mecha Mummy’s weapons from 2006 and finally a big electric signboard T that was part of a stage prop from DDT’s first ever Sumo Hall show back in 2009. The last one still works. Sanshiro Takagi threw Ken Ohka onto the T with the Spicolli Driver then pinned him with the Himawari Bomb through a plastic case. Takagi and Ohka agreed to repair the T and use it at next year’s Saitama Super Arena show.

The pairing of Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto acted exactly how we thought they would. They got their hands all over Akito & Shunma Katsumata until Yukinori Matsui called off the match.

MAO brought along the two glass globes he has earned so far from the Tenkaichi Jr. tournament in ZERO1. He and HARASHIMA defeated Jun Masaoka & Kouhei Kinoshita. HARASHIMA commiserated his opponents afterwards.

Yuni was able to pin Puma King with a Hurricanrana because all of the other wrestlers in the Battle Royal piled on top of them. Yuni was declared the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion but Kazuki Hirata quickly pinned him with the Egoist Driver to win the belt. Saki Akai won it next then Asuka pinned her with the ASUKA FANTASY to win both the title and the Battle Royal itself. Hirata got the belt back after the match with a School Boy then Puma King got the last title switch with the Puma Kingdom.

The debuting Cody Hall showed his strength by throwing around Yukio Sakaguchi, Lariating Yukio Naya and pinning Mizuki Watase with the Thunder Buster.

Things are a little awkward in the Iron Family now that FUMA has sided with Dove Pro for the summer series against BASARA. His relationship with Yusuke Kubo in particular looks like it could get strained. A few of the unit members have put together a match between themselves in order to get FUMA & Kubo on the same page again.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TJPW FAN CLUB BOX OFFICE – PURE TOKYO JOSHI PRO WRESTLING 3”, 12/08/2019

DDT “SUMMER VACATION MEMORIES 2019”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

8. DDT Extreme Title: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki was so drunk by the end of Beer Garden week that he has no memory of how he got a DDT Extreme Title match with Jiro Kuroshio. He remembers eating watermelon and also Kuroshio’s wonderful hair but that’s it. Kuroshio says this is a match that nobody should laugh at. In fact Kuroshio Vs Sasaki is a match he thinks fans want to see. He also didn’t know that he gets to make the stipulation. So he hasn’t thought of one yet but promises it will be something serious.

So Konosuke Takeshita’s summer challenge before Shinya Aoki is an 8-Man Tag with Santino Marella involved. Didn’t see that coming.

DDT “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2019”, 01/09/2019
Osaka Edion Arena #2

1. DD Army Vs ALL OUT!: Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata
2. O-40 Title: Sanshiro Takagi (c) Vs Ken Ohka
3. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Kuroshio is acting like he is Kazusada Higuchi’s little brother so they can challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Higuchi is happy to go along with it and promises to win the belt for their family. They’re not related by blood but if they win then it is proof that they are real brothers. If they do become the champions Kuroshio wants to defend the belts against The Brahman Brothers. In response to this, Sasaki is making fun of the situation by saying he is Higuchi’s dad. Higuchi points out that Sasaki is only three years older than him. Sasaki fired back by saying he was only three years old when he was with Higuchi’s mother. Sasaki was still drunk when he said this but how much of that is an excuse, I don’t know. Kuroshio made the argument even more confusing by saying his and Kazusada’s father is a 56 year old man named Jiro Higuchi.

Yay, Shuji Ishikawa is back again!

Who’s idea was it to team up Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto!?!

The second half of today’s Shinjuku FACE double header was DDT hosting the final show of this year’s Beer Garden series. The main event was the annual Beer Garden finale, a 6-Man Tag Match with the teams organised by fans picking balls out of a box. The match everyone got was Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Soma Takao, Mike Bailey & Naomi Yoshimura. Bailey hit the Green Tea Plunge on Takeshita and HARASHIMA jumped on top of them with a Springboard Body Press. Takao broke the pin with a chair and the four of them fought their way out of the ring. That left Higuchi to thump Yoshimura with a Lariat and pin him with the Doctor Bomb.

The DDT Extreme Title was on the line in a Watermelon Split Match. A watermelon was placed in the ring. If a wrestler damaged the watermelon they would be disqualified. However if a wrestler got a one count pin, they would be given a chance to split the watermelon with a shovel after spinning around in circles ten times while wearing a blindfold. If they damaged the watermelon that way then they would be the winner. Akito and Jiro Kuroshio both had their chances to win but smashing a watermelon while dizzy and blindfolded is a difficult task. Kuroshio only won by accident when he swung the shovel at the ropes, the shovel bounced back, hit Kuroshio in the face and he fell on top of the watermelon to split it into pieces.

Daisuke Sasaki entered the ring after the match but it was just to compliment Kuroshio’s hair and also eat some watermelon. Hisaya Imabayashi didn’t believe him and said he really wanted to be the next Extreme Title challenger. He booked a title match between Kuroshio and Sasaki for 25th August. Kuroshio then asked for a KO-D Tag Team Titles match on the 1st September Osaka show. He wanted either Takeshita or Sanshiro Takagi to be his partner but they both have title defences on that show. Kuroshio then said his partner will be… his older brother Kazutoshi? Imabayashi didn’t know who he was talking about until Kuroshio said he meant Kazusada Higuchi. He got his “brother’s” name wrong. Higuchi accepted the offer and promised to win the tag titles with his “true brother”. A drunk Sasaki fell asleep in the corner while this was going on.

Catastrophe struck at the start of the show when Danshoku Dieno, Yuki Ueno, MAO and Mizuki Watase all collided head first into each other during a respectful handshake. When it was time for their tag match nobody knew what condition the four of them would be in. Dieno came out thinking he was Watase and Ueno thought he was MAO. Then MAO & Watase both came out thinking they were Dieno! They wrestled the match using each other’s moves until Dieno and Ueno had their tights pulled down revealing Danshoku tights underneath. Everybody was now Danshoku Dieno! They all chased after Keigo Nakamura, causing the match to be stopped.

The tag match before that also ended without a winner. Here the two teams agreed to take a drink after every kickout and rope break. Obviously it was another excuse for Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi to get drunk again. Tetsuya Endo and Asuka got to join in. Even Daisuke Kiso was convinced to take some shots. Yukinori Matsui argued with Kiso for drinking at work but Kiso gave him a Lariat. Everyone laughed but the bell rang and the match was ruled a No Contest. No one cared because they still got to drink.

There was a whole lot of dancing in the Rock & Roll 5 Way Death Match. A. YAZAWA did his thing until he was choked out by his own suspenders. Yuni gave Kazuki Hirata an Old School rope walk then danced with Toru Owashi. It wasn’t just rock music, Yukio Sakaguchi wound up dancing to “Swan Lake”! Kazuki Hirata joined in when the music turned to something more danceable for him but Sakaguchi Penalty Kicked him for the win.

Since this was the last day of Beer Garden you can’t be mad that most of the wrestlers were more interested in eating and drinking instead of wrestling. That is what Yukio Naya and Mad Paulie got up to in the opening match. When it was time for them to get involved in the ring they were able to clear house handily. Nobuhiro Shimatani got himself tagged in assuring his partners to leave the match to him. Shunma Katsumata and Hiroshi Yamato took each other out which left no one around to stop Makoto Oishi’s European Clutch on Shimatani.

The show ended with each of the wrestlers raising a toast and shouting “Kanpai” at the fans. Hirata then got a party going by starting the Hirata GO! dance and getting others to join in. Sakaguchi was ready to take part when Saki Akai suddenly knocked him out with a can of beer! Akai pinned him to become the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. Hirata then pinned Akai with the Miracle One Shot Cradle to win the belt. Sakaguchi got back up and choked out Hirata with the Sleeper Hold to get the title back.

Ueno then offered Sakaguchi a beer but he drank it back so deep that he fell to the mat with the can still on top of his face. Matsui counted to three and declared the Can Of Beer as the new champion! Ueno drank what was left in the can and Matsui then declared him the champion! Sakaguchi chased Ueno out of the ring while HARASHIMA and Takagi said their final words. Takagi said Beer Garden will live forever even though he missed it due to injury.

*V1 for Konosuke Takeshita.

The main event was a battle for the spirit of DDT. On the one side there was Konosuke Takeshita, the defending KO-D Openweight Champion and current generation ace of the company. Facing him was Chris Brookes, a British wrestler who in short time embraced the company and was given the same affection in return. Brookes implemented some out of the ring tactics to break down the champion. They fought up towards one of the Korakuen Hall entry ways and it ended with Brookes giving Takeshita a flying RKO onto a table below them. When they returned to the ring Takeshita missed a Big Boot and struck Yukinori Matsui by accident. Brookes used this as an opportunity to take out a ladder and crush Takeshita through some plastic cases with a Diving Senton. Another ref bumped saved Brookes because he tapped out to the Walls Of Takeshita but no one was there to end the match. When Takeshita revived Matsui, Brookes hit the Praying Mantis Bomb but a slow count from a struggling ref allowed Takeshita to kick out. Takeshita hit a Lariat and a German Suplex for a nearfall. He then hit the Fable but Brookes had enough energy left to give him the middle finger. Takeshita finished him off with the Cross-Arm German Suplex for a successful first defence.

Takeshita sent Brookes off and was told by Hisaya Imabayashi that his next title defence will be in Osaka on 1st September. Takeshita called out to the locker room asking if there was anyone who wanted to fight him. Takeshita said it would be “first come, first served” and Shinya Aoki came out! He wanted to accept a serious challenge. Takeshita told him they would have a match worthy of the KO-D Title’s history.

The dangerous combination of seaweed and lollipops were not enough for Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Ryan brought out a supersized plastic lolly with seaweed on it and shoved it into Soma Takao’s mouth to take him out. He and Yamato then gave Daisuke Sasaki a Spider German Superplex combo for a nearfall. When Ryan and Takao were wiped out after a Suicide Dive, Sasaki caught Yamato in the Crossover Facelock and got a quick tap out from it. Takao doesn’t want a rematch because he is currently haunted by the image of seaweed and he might not survive it.

A PowerPoint presentation titled “The Power Harassment Problem in Wrestling Groups And Purpose Of Today’s Six-Man Tag Match” explained the situation surrounding Sanshiro Takagi’s part of the show. Takagi was going to reveal Super Sasadango Machine’s phone number during their Weapon Rumble at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” last week. However Yumehito Imanari decided to expose Takagi’s number instead because he felt Takagi’s plan was employee harassment. Sasadango explained that there are three ways to make an apology: retire, cancel your contract or wrestle a 6-Man Tag Match. Clearly everyone went with Option C. Imanari couldn’t wrestle because of a concussion so Ken Ohka took his place. As serious as the situation is, folks like Shinya Aoki and Hideki Suzuki couldn’t help but get silly. Aoki grappled with Sasadango’s belt and Suzuki broke up a pin by pulling down the back of Aoki’s tights. It seems like the only time Suzuki took the match seriously was when he fought HARASHIMA. Ohka got the pin on Takagi with the Fire Spear, sparing Sasadango & Imanari from further work harassment.

After the match Ohka told Takagi what happened in the past doesn’t matter because we’re all living in the now! Ohka is ambitious and also 42 years old which means he qualifies for a shot at the O-40 Title. Takagi accepted the challenge and said a match between himself and Ohka needs to be at a big show. Imabayashi decided to book the match for “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2019” on 1st September.

That Jiro Kuroshio fella looks like he doesn’t have a nasty bone in his body. But when he was put into a No DQ match with MAO he had to come up with some weapons. What did he make and bring to the match? A giant duck thing. MAO chased Kuroshio out of the ring, the two then climbed some pipes up to the balcony and then tried to throw each other out to the audience below! Kuroshio later lost the audience support when he made a kid cry and found out it was KUDO’s daughter. Back at ringside MAO dropped Kuroshio onto the apron with a Michinoku Driver. He then placed Kuroshio on a castle of chairs and hit a 450 Splash onto them. Kuroshio fought back in the ring by giving MAO the Hybrid Blaster onto the duck. He missed a Moonsault with a trash can which gave MAO an opening. But Kuroshio rolled him into a Cradle and used a chair to tangle up his legs for the three count.

After the match Kuroshio invited Akito into the ring and they talked about some things that happened between them in the past. Like the time Akito first met Kuroshio he was drunk and completely naked. It’s a long story, you should have been there. Then there was that other time when Akito got into a fight with NOSAWA Rongai. Anyway, Akito told Kuroshio they will have a match for the DDT Extreme Title at the 3rd August Beer Garden show. Akito promised the rules he will use is the one that Kuroshio likes the best.

Yukio Sakaguchi was targeted for having the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title during the 3 Way Tag. Makoto Oishi in particular wanted the belt and convinced Tetsuya Endo to help him a little. Yukio Naya helped too which he was supposed to because he was his tag partner. Kazusada Higuchi kept Mad Paulie at bay and Sakaguchi was able to catch Oishi in the Cobra Clutch for the victory.

A sponsorship deal with Calbee & Frito Lay brought along the debuts of King Potato Chips and Dragon Potato Mask. Sadly Toru Owashi and Antonio Honda couldn’t be here to take part in the match. They ate snacks to power up themselves and their partners. Dragon Potato Mask told a story about “Dragon, The Little Fox” and summoned everyone to join together for a super attack. It misfired and hit Kazuki Hirata. King Potato Chip pinned Dragon with La Magistral Cradle to get the win. Hirata attacked Dragon out of frustration after the mask but King came to the rescue. He booted Hirata out of the ring then promoted the snacks with Dragon.

Kota Umeda took part in and won his final DDT match. His last time in the ring was spent with other wrestlers from DNA, the brand he helped start. He pinned Mizuki Watase with the Umeda Driver and then got everyone together for a group photo.

The show ended with Umeda being invited into the ring one last time. Takeshita told him he wanted to defend the KO-D Title against him one day. He knows this isn’t the end of Umeda’s wrestling career so he will look forward to the day they have their title match. Umeda thanked everyone for his five years in DDT. He asked for everyone to support him again if he ever does come back. Another group photo took place in the ring and everyone threw Umeda in the air to celebrate him.

“ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” in Sumo Hall on 3rd November will feature a KO-D Openweight Title match, a Union MAX Title match, a Princess Of Princess Title match and a Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match. So each DDT brand has their main championships being defended on the show.

DDT will be having matches at the Animate Girls Festival in Ikebukuro on 9th and 10th November.
