DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall
201 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Kota Umeda defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the PK (7:09).
2. 3 Way Match: Toru Owashi defeated Makoto Oishi and Hiroshi Yamato when Owashi pinned Oishi with La Magistral Cradle (8:08).
3. Masahiro Takanashi & Asuka defeated MAO & Mizuki Watase when Takanashi pinned Watase with a Cradle (9:54).
4. Shunma Katsumata Return Battle: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Yoshimura pinned Katsumata with the Shonenba (15:31).
5. Soma Takao defeated Kazuki Hirata with the Egoist Driver (9:58).
6. DDT Extreme Title – Yogi Yogi Death Match: Akito defeated Antonio Honda (c) with the Scorpion Lock (13:02).
*Antonio Honda fails in V1. Akito becomes the 45th DDT Extreme Champion!
7. Yukio Sakaguchi, HARASHIMA & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb (13:06).

DAMNATION used Mad Paulie’s collar and leash to choke Yukio Sakaguchi with. However Sakaguchi was able to render Daisuke Sasaki useless with a Sleeper Hold, hit Paulie with the God’s Right Knee and got rid of Tetsuya Endo with an Apron PK outside the ring. HARASHIMA kept a look out while Kazusada Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb. Sakaguchi told Endo he wants to kill him right now but he’d rather wait until their match at Matsuyama. Endo feels the same way. He said the KO-D Openweight Title means everything to him because he won it from Sasaki.

The DDT Extreme Title match featured a stipulation that starts off peacefully but descends into mayhem if something goes wrong. Antonio Honda and Akito wrestled each other while bystanders Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Konaka = Pale One would meditate and do yoga next to them. The slightest touch to either Hiroshi or Konaka would send them into a rage and result in a sudden attack before they returned to meditating. The provoked attacks would continue until Hiroshi and Konaka touched each other, leading to a fight between themselves. When this happened Honda had enough space in the ring to hit the Diving Fist Drop to Akito. He went for the pin but Hiroshi broke it with the Yoga Ye to Honda! Akito put Honda in the Scorpion Deathlock and made Honda tap to win the Extreme Title. The trainee at ringside, Nakamura, accidentally made contact with Hiroshi and Konaka after the match. He suffered the consequences.

Akito thanked Honda for the match and was ecstatic to become the Extreme Champion again after five years. Asuka congratulated Akito and asked for a title match. She is starving for a championship ever since she lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hisaya Imabayashi loved the idea and wants the match to happen at Ota Ward on 15th July. However Akito struggled to accept it and even argued with Imabayashi over the idea. He eventually gave in and will put the belt on the line against Asuka at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”.

Soma Takao already had Kazuki Hirata beaten with the Gin And Tonic. He decided to add insult to injury by pinning Hirata with his own finisher, the Egoist Driver!

The returning Shunma Katsumata took the fall in Match #4. Konosuke Takaeshita said he’s been annoyed by how much Katsumata’s career had stalled this year because of his injuries. He asked him to do his best to start again from scratch. Katsumata promised to do that and also to do his best for ALL OUT’s upcoming series with the Sendai Girls.

It was announced that Chris Brookes will get a KO-D Title shot at the 21st July Korakuen Hall show.

Higuchi found out he will be facing Yukio Naya on 30th June. When they met in the ring for the announcement Naya shoved Higuchi. Naya doesn’t care about his bloodline. He wants to show everyone his power under his own terms.

Kyoto KBS Hall

1. Kazusada Higuchi Marunage Match ~ DDT Yuru-chara Rebellion: Doradori-kun Vs Pokotan

Kazusada Higuchi has a Marunage match but is unable to appear in Kyoto for this show. His idea is to bring back DDT’s first mascot character Doradori-kun for a match against the current mascot Pokotan. Doradori-kun made his appearance looking much larger than he did previously but was attacked by Pokotan with a chair! Pokotan wrote several messages to get its point across. The messages were “I’ll kill you!”, “Kyoto will be your graveyard!” and “I am the No. 1 DDT Yuru-chara!”

BASARA “BASARA 96 ~BANQUET~ AO”, 11/05/2019
Aichi Sportiva Arena
109 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ryota Nakatsu defeated Masato Kamino with the Powerslave (10:03).
2. Imprint Yoga War!: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT Vs Best Stretchman V3 & Konaka = Pale One ended in a Draw when Hiroshi and Pale One pinned each other with Indian Yoga and Pakistani Yoga at the same time (11:22).
3. Yasu Urano & Kengo Takai defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Urano pinned Kubo with a Jackknife Pin (14:31).
4. Isami Kodaka defeated Fuminori Abe with the Samson Clutch (17:24).
5. Ryuichi Sekine & Daichi Shimomura defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Takato Nakano when Sekine submitted Nakano with the Let’s Combine (11:19).

After the main event Ryuichi Sekine called out the roster so they could hold the lottery for tomorrow’s tag team tournament. The 1st Round matches are Yasu Urano & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Isami Kodaka, SAGAT & Daichi Kazato Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA & Fuminori Abe Vs Masato Kamino & Daiki Shimomura. The team of Takato Nakano & Yusuke Kubo get a bye to the semi finals and will face the winners of FUMA/Abe Vs Kamino/Shimomura.

For some reason Nakatsu’s name was not included in the draw. When the lottery ended with Urano having no tag partner, it was decided that Nakatsu would join his team.

Kodaka defeated Abe in the clash of champions. Kodaka used a punching pad and a mini stepladder against Abe then caught him in a Samson Clutch during a scramble to get the pin.

Kengo Takai dressed like Yasu Urano for their tag match. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo tried to manipulate the two into hitting each other but Urano was able to duck Takai’s Lariat and Kubo took the blow instead. Urano then used a Jackknife to pin Kubo.

When Konaka = Pale One was introduced by the ring announcer as the “Pakistan Monster” Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi tried to intimidate him by calling SAGAT the “Juice Monster”. Later when SAGAT got Best Stretchman V3 out of the ring, Hiroshi and Konaka got into a test of strength. It resulted in both of them using their yoga abilities to roll onto their own shoulders. Both of them were counted as a pin and the match was declared a draw.

Ryota Nakatsu’s Powerslide is a modified Camel Clutch.

7. King Of DDT 2018 Best 8 Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Mike Bailey & MAO when Endo pinned MAO with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (18:10).

With the King Of DDT Quarter Finals around the corner, the remaining wrestlers are making their presence felt. Daisuke Sasaki brought up how Tetsuya Endo won last year’s tournament and will do the same this year. Sasaki even talked down his own chances of winning to put over Endo. DAMNATION’s newest member Nobuhiro Shimatani then got in the ring and enthusiastically took over the end of show speech. He called himself the knob that makes the world spin around DAMNATION and he joined in the group pose by posing in front of the other members. Sasaki gave him a Low Blow to get him out of the way.

Shigehiro Irie gave a violent message to the absent Danshoku Dieno after Match #6. Irie took a beaten Kouki Iwasaki and gave him a Pentagon Jr. style Inverted Armbreaker to injure Iwasaki’s shoulder. Irie then yelled that he will do this to Dieno the next time he’s in the ring with him!

After the match between Antonio Honda and Konaka = Pale One, Honda asked the fans if they knew the connection between him and Konaka. He described it like taking a step in one direction with one leg and then a step in the other direction with the other leg. In between that is the penis! Honda realised the detail in his speech was getting lewd so he ended it by telling everyone that they would not exist today without a penis. He then made everyone chant “1, 2, 3, Penis!”

The Mizuki in Match #4 is not the Mizuki from Tokyo Joshi Pro but a masked joshi from the local Toyota Pro Wrestling league making her DDT debut. I wasn’t able to find much information about her other than this weekend was the 4th anniversary of her debut.

Yasu Urano, Tsutomu Oosugi, Banana Senga and Akiyori Takizawa are booked for the show.


October 23, 2017

Nagoya City Mid-Sports Center
114 Fans

1. Toru Sugiura defeated Takato Nakano with a Missile Kick (7:29).
2. Trans-Am ★ Shinya defeated Daichi Kazato with the Khusi Drive (10:45).
3. Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Konoka = Pale One when Kubo pinned Nakatsu with the Death Metal Roll (14:22).
4. Yasu Urano defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with a Cradle (11:21).
5. Doki! 3 Way Hardcore Can Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA when Sekine submitted Tsukamoto with the Let’s Combine (13:13).
6. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka defeated SAGAT with the Isamuashi Zan (15:55).

SAGAT requested that his main event with Isami Kodaka could be held as a Hardcore Match. Kodaka accepted and that caught SAGAT off guard. The two fought with chairs and steel cans until Kodaka came out on top. Afterwards Kodaka said SAGAT’s growth has been wonderful to see and he encouraged SAGAT to stand up through the pain by himself. SAGAT did so. Kodaka said that he himself is incompatible with the Trans-Am ★ Family but they clearly have love for SAGAT. He would like to help them put together the Hiroshi Aid show for Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

Ryuichi Sekine took one step closer to the top of the BASARA mountain by winning the 3 Way Match. He approached Kodaka at the end of the show demanding the next shot at the Union MAX Title. In less than one month he made FUMA submit in Korakuen Hall, made Yasu Urano submit in Shin-Kiba 1st RING and today made Takumi Tsukamoto submit in Nagoya. All that is left for him is the BASARA leader himself. Sekine’s challenge wasn’t clearly understood by Kodaka but what Sekine meant to say was he doesn’t need three or four chances to win the title. He wants on decisive match against Kodaka so both are guaranteed to be at their best. He wants this to be the Match Of The Year on the indies.

Tatsuhiko Yoshino wanted to act tough by daring Yasu Urano to give him Soccer Kicks. He would then shrug them off and tell him they don’t hurt. This backfired when Urano kept kicking and slamming Yoshino until he admitted to feeling pain. Lots and lots of pain. Yoshino later had the back of his tights pulled down but he either didn’t notice or didn’t care about pulling them back up.

Ryota Nakatsu painted himself to resemble Konoka = Pale One when they teamed together. He also wanted to be called Nakatsu = Pale One.

Trans-Am ★ Shinya traveled from Mexico to wrestle on this show and he had the sunburned skin to prove it. He also cut off Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s “USA!” chants and replaced them with “Lucha!” chants instead.
