7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo Vs HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka

The conflict over Ken Ohka’s money continues. Daisuke Sasaki tried to withdraw all of Ohka’s money from the bank this week but discovered his account was empty. When Sasaki crashed a Ganbare☆Wrestling show to get an explanation both he and Ohka found out that Yumehito Imanari took out the money to both protect and invest in it. Sasaki and Ohka agreed to a tag match on this show where the winner takes it all. Ohka got his money back and brought it to DDT HQ to count all of it. Hisaya Imabayashi confirmed that 691,619 yen is the full amount being put on the line. Sasaki chose Tetsuya Endo to be his partner while HARASHIMA offered to help out Ohka, both because he is a friend and also so he can fight Sasaki before their DDT Extreme Title match.

6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) Vs HARASHIMA (#2)
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

Sasaki has decided his match with HARASHIMA will now be a TLC Match! He says in pro wrestling you have to fight using your own physical body. Sasaki admits that HARASHIMA’s body is better than his own so that’s why he’s bringing in tables, ladders and chairs to swing the odds in his favour. That’s not to say HARASHIMA is new to the stipulation. He won the KO-D Tag Team Titles with KUDO in a TLC Match way back in 2003.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The circumstances surrounding the next KO-D Tag Titles defence are not good but Shuten-dōji still wanted another shot. The previous match prematurely ended when KUDO suffered a concussion from a fluke collision with Naomichi Marufuji’s knee. Masahiro Takanashi misses KUDO but he decided that letting other teams challenge for the titles will eventually lose him the opportunity to win the belts from HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji. So he and Yukio Sakaguchi are getting their shot next. Takanashi said they are not motivated by getting revenge for what happened to KUDO. They are treating this match as a continuation of the previous match. HARASHIMA hopes that when KUDO returns they can still do a proper rematch for the titles.

Although the Differ Cup was originally a Jr. Heavyweight tournament, this time around it is using an Openweight format. DDT is sending in college buddies Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno to be their representatives in the tournament. Their 1st round opponents are a yet to be decided team from FREEDOMS. Meanwhile, HARASHIMA will be in non-tournament action teaming with Marufuji and UMA’s Kappa Kozo against a team to be announced.

KUDO Gets A Concussion, KO-D 6-Man Titles Vacated

October 10, 2017

KUDO was concussed during the main event of yesterday’s show in Sapporo. His doctor said that there is no need for him to stay in a hospital but KUDO will be out of action for at least one month so he has plenty of time to recover. Because of this decision, Shuten-dōji have agreed to vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Their next defence was originally scheduled for 14th October against ALL OUT but that match has been cancelled. A match to crown the new champions will be determined on a later date.

Now that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is on friendly terms with the BASARA wrestlers, he gets to team with Isami Kodaka.

Hercules Senga is so upset that his regular tag partner Tsutomu Oosugi is now with Best Stretchman V3 that he is convinced Oosugi was kidnapped. Senga enlisted Atsushi Maruyama to help him save Oosugi. Whether or not Oosugi actually needs saving is up for debate which just so happens to be something else Maruyama can do.

The full card is revealed along with which matches the guests will be a part of. Akito and Hideki Suzuki teaming together should be good. Ken Ohka being opposite Ultimo Dragon could be awkward given Ohka’s history with the Dragon System when he first broke into wrestling.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Masamune & Fuminori Abe defeated Shiori Asahi & Takato Nakano when Abe submitted Nakano with a Munenori Sawa Style Manjigatame (7:36).
2. Mineo Fujita & Kazuhiro Tamura defeated Daichi Kazato & Gouma Ryu when Fujita pinned Ryu with a Swanton Bomb (13:40).

4. B FAULTLESS JUNKY’S Vs DOVE Pro Hardcore Steel Battle: Takumi Tsukamoto, Masashi Takeda & Jaki Numazawa defeated Gunso, Kabuki Kida & Naoki Tanizaki when Tsukamoto pinned Gunso with the Zudon onto a Steel Box (12:58).

6. Special 6-Man Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine, Yuji Hino & Yasu Urano defeated FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & HUB whn Sekine submitted FUMA with the Let’s Combine (14:28).
7. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) with the Isamuashi Zan (16:35).
*Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi fails in V4. Isami Kodaka becomes the 9th Union MAX Champion!

15 years isn’t slowing down Isami Kodaka one bit. He regained the Union MAX Championship on his very own 15th Anniversary show! Kodaka’s cry from the main event’s video package was “Enjoy Wrestling!” while the defending champion Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted back with “Freedom!” The video also featured comments from Ryuichi Kawakami who has been constantly compared to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for some reason. In a reverse of roles, it was Ryuichi who offered a handshake at the start only for Kodaka to kick his hand away. Kodaka later asked for a handshake but Ryuichi turned him down and shouted “Wooooo!” Kodaka kicked out of the Perfect Plex and fought his way out of the Perfect Five. An Exploder Suplex took Ryuichi out of his game and a bunch of Buzzsaw Kicks and Isamuashi Zan kicks won the match for Kodaka. The new champion said Ryuichi fought like a cyborg. He then asked him to send his thanks to Kawakami. Kodaka thinks Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and Ryuichi Kawakami should combine to form the Perfect Soldier. Ryuichi’s response in broken English was “Thank you so much!” Kodaka then talked about his own career. It can go another 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years. Kodaka wants to be like The Great Kojika who is still wrestling at 75 years old. However, Kodaka is also dedicated to BASARA. If BASARA ever goes away then that means retirement for Kodaka! He will never let that happen.

HUB got into the IRON PRIEST spirit by rocking out on air guitar with FUMA and Yusuke Kubo for their entrance. FUMA even used HUB’s stinger as a guitar while they were beating on Yasu Urano. Kubo & HUB wiped out Urano & Yuji Hino with dives but the party ended when Ryuichi Sekine countered FUMA’s Reverse Power Slam and rolled it into the Let’s Combine submission. When FUMA tapped out, Urano rushed over to hug Sekine. In the backstage interview, Sekine pointed out that he never touched HUB at all during the match because he hates snakes. He also heard all of his large sized shirts and higher sold out at the merch table. None of the smaller shirts sold which annoyed him because it meant no women were buying them, only men.

In the battle of current gen yankee versus new gen yankee, Yuko Miyamoto defeated Ryota Nakatsu. Miyamoto was put in danger many times by Nakatsu’s submissions, most notably when the Fire Thunder was countered into a Cross Armbreaker. Miyamoto eventually hit the move but Nakatsu fought through the pain to get back up to his feet. However, Nakatsu was knocked down again with a Lariat and put away with the Moonsault. Miyamoto was surprised to discover that BASARA had a wrestler so focused to target his right arm like Nakatsu did. He thinks it is possible for Nakatsu to grow into a great wrestler.

If it was made out of steel, it was allowed to be used in the Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match. Takumi Tsukamoto gathered around some of his friends from Big Japan to battle the Dove Pro team and their heavy bass music that played throughout the match. A steel box was smashed over everyone’s heads a lot. Gunso grabbed a shard of metal and dug it into Tsukamoto’s forehead to make him bleed. Kabuki Kid then created a pile of chairs for Tsukamoto to be slammed onto. However Tsukamoto got some revenge on Kid with a Fisherman Buster. Jaki Numazawa fended off the Dove wrestlers by throwing chairs at them. Masashi Takeda also used the steel box to keep the Dove wrestlers away while Tsukamoto and Gunso fought to the end inside the ring. Tsukamoto Suplexed Gunso from a ladder onto a pile of metal objects below. He then hit the Zudon for the three count, making B FAULTLESS JUNKY’S the winners. Even though a winner was declared, both sides hinted that the conflict between them isn’t over yet. Tsukamoto wasn’t satisfied with the victory.

SAGAT had the impossible task of facing Daisuke Sekimoto one on one. Even with the hard work and crowd behind him, SAGAT fell to the Deadlift German Suplex. Sekimoto gently bowed to SAGAT after the match and left the ring. SAGAT was offered help by Takato Nakano to be taken out of the ring but SAGAT refused and left under his own power. SAGAT said it was impossible for him to beat Sekimoto this year. It will be impossible for him to beat Sekimoto next year. But some year, SAGAT will beat him! Doesn’t matter if it is so long in the future that Sekimoto will be a grandfather when it happens. It will happen!

The recent sale of DDT and all of its franchises has left Gouma Ryu feeling worried. The entire company is a legitimate business now and there is so much that has to change as a result. Ryu can no longer tolerate sneak attacks because it is illegal. He also wants wrestlers to be careful with their kicks because they can cause injuries. Mineo Fujita cut him off with a sneak attack Dropkick to start their tag match. Ryu tried to strike Fujita with his lawbook but Fujita stopped him with a Shining Wizard. Fujita picked up the lawbook but was told by the referee to get rid of it. Fujita dropped the book onto Ryu’s stomach by accident then pinned him with the Swanton Bomb.

Fuminori Abe channeled the abilities of Munenori Sawa to trap Takato Nakano in an Octopus Hold the same way Sawa did. Masamune kept Shiori Asahi at bay to stop the move from being broken.

6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii

The new World Jr. Champion will be having some title defences in DDT for as long as he holds the belt. Daisuke Sasaki’s first challenger is Shuichiro Katsumura from Ganbare☆Wrestling. Can Katsumura get revenge for Ohka and bring the belt back to Ganpuro?

Producer Danshoku Dino will be putting mystery people in the NωA’s corner. I’m unsure if their roles are meant to be ring seconds or lumberjacks.

*V6 for Daisuke Sasaki. V8 for Konosuke Takeshita. Ken Ohka fails in V4. Daisuke Sasaki becomes the 25th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion! Daisuke Sasaki wins Ken Ohka’s 714,146 yen!

Three champions entered the main event. One would leave with two titles, one would leave without a belt and the odd one out would be doing alright actually. Konosuke Takeshita and Daisuke Sasaki already have a lot of history with each other over the KO-D Openweight Title. The wild card was Ken Ohka. Not only was he defending the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title but earlier in the week Sasaki stole his bank account details! Sasaki did it because he thinks his own DDT Extreme Title is more valuable so he’d rather win Ohka’s money instead of the Indy Jr. Title. So now Ohka was fighting for both his championship and his money. This was confirmed when Hisaya Imabayashi took in Ohka’s savings book along with the three title belts during the ring introductions. Alliances were made and broken all throughout the match. Takeshita had Sasaki set up for the finish when he went into position for a Power Bomb but Ohka cut him off with the Fire Spear. Ohka then rallied the crowd and waited for Sasaki to get up for the Fire Spear. It all went wrong and Sasaki countered the Spear into the Cross Facelock. Ohka pulled himself over to the ropes but Sasaki rolled him back into the middle of the ring. Ohka tapped out before Takeshita could break the hold. As a result, Sasaki is still the DDT Extreme Champion and is now the new Independent Jr. Champion! Oh, and he now also claims all 714,146 yen of Ken Ohka’s money!

Sasaki was then informed he will have to defend the Indy Jr. Title against Shiori Asahi in K-DOJO for their 15th October show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita is still the KO-D Champion and the result counts as a successful title defence for him. His next defence will be on 22nd October at Korakuen against the Dramatic General Election winner or if he wins the election, an opponent of his choice. Sadly for Ohka, he leaves with nothing. Sasaki told Takeshita that their grudge hasn’t been settled yet. If the fans want to see that happen, vote for Sasaki! He was told to stop campaigning inside the ring because it is against the rules. Sasaki leaned away from his comments and said of course he doesn’t know when they will fight each other again. Sasaki ended the show with a message to everyone watching whether it was on AbemaTV, Samurai! TV, DDT UNIVERSE, in Japan and around the world. He is “Charisma” Daisuke Sasaki! You only have to remember his name. Mother Earth and the DDT ring will turn to the centre of DAMNATION!

One of the longest relationships in DDT’s 20 year history was revisited when HARASHIMA faced KUDO. They have been both tag partners and enemies throughout their careers. Plenty of kicks and Diving Knee Drops were on offer. HARASHIMA’s Somato was countered with KUDO using his own Double Knee Kick. KUDO went for the Diving Double Knee Drop aiming for the back of HARASHIMA’s head but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. HARASHIMA climbed the ropes but KUDO kicked him off and left him to dangle upside down by his legs. KUDO then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to the outside. HARASHIMA fought back as much as he could but couldn’t outkick KUDO. He finally fell down to a Buzzsaw Kick and was pinned with the Diving Double Knee Drop. In his post-match interview KUDO said he was greatful for HARASHIMA’s “special existence” because their matches inspire him. KUDO was also happy because his family was in the audience today and they got to see him wrestle. HARASHIMA was disappointed he lost but hopes his rivalry with KUDO will continue for another 21 or 22 years. He does not want his rivalry to end with a loss.

Entire homes were supposedly on the line for the Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine bout. It was a Loser Leaves House match where whoever lost would be forced to move out of their current home. Sasadango was accompanied by Muscle Sakai but Sakai quickly moved over to a laptop so he could show off a PowerPoint Presentation titled “Consideration On Traceability Of Masked Wrestlers In The Professional Wrestling Industry”. Sakai has been busy away from wrestling, balancing careers in both film making and the molding industry. He is so busy that it leaves him feeling sluggish. One of the problems relating to this is he lives a double life as Super Sasadango Machine. Sakai’s solution was to sell all rights of the Super Sasadango Machine gimmick to a company called CyberAdango to form a subsidiary called M&A.

The subsidiary will rent out the Sasadango gimmick to other wrestlers, which explains how Sakai and Sasadango could be seen together recently. Sakai then revealed that the massive rookie Yuki Ino is renting the Sasadango gimmick and is the person currently under the mask. Also part of the deal allows Sakai and Sasadango to still be recognised as one person so they will be fighting Dino two on one even though it is still officially a singles match. Finally, Sakai said his plan for the match was to poke Dino in the eyes and blind him with the Iron Claw. Sakai then put on his Sasadango gear and entered the match. His plan worked perfectly during the match until Ino pulled off his own Sasadango mask and tights to reveal Danshoku tights underneath! Ino gave Sakai the Lip Lock then threw him into Dino for the Danshoku Driver. The referee raised both Dino and Ino’s hands in victory even though Ino looked embarrased. Sakai was furious at Ino for betraying him. Ino admitted he switched sides when Dino gave him the Lip Lock during the match. In the post-match interview both Dino and Sakai ignored questions about if the match stipulation would be upheld.

Some miscommunication between Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie cost them their match against Soma Takao & Yasu Urano. Paulie’s Corner Splash to Takao missed and instead squashed Endo by mistake. Paulie was so concerned over Endo that he couldn’t fight out of Takao’s La Magistral Cradle and was pinned.

Ryuichi Sekine wanted to get his hands on Saki Akai but wound up getting blocked. Meanwhile Yukio Sakaguchi and Rocky Kawamura had a strike duel that ended in a stalemate when Sakaguchi’s High Kick met with Kawamura’s Straight Mix Punch. Akai hit a Diving Cross Body on Kawamura but he used the momentum to roll backwards on top of her for the pin.

Yuu spent the early part of the show being chased by other wrestlers who wanted the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. She found a room to hide in, ate some katsudon with chopsticks and took a nap afterwards. Yukinori Matsui entered the room and saw the chopstick were on top of Yuu’s chest. 1…2…3! The Disposable Chopsticks were now the champion! Royce Isaacs suddenly appeared and snapped the chopsticks in half with his Miracle Ass. Now he is the champion. Isaacs then went out to the ring to defend the belt in a Battle Royal. Sanshiro Takagi entered the match still wearing his suit from the earlier announcement at the start of the show. Matsuno Collection A.T. took part in the match instead of Gorgeous Matsuno. Antonio Honda distracted Isaacs with a story about “Gon, The Little Fox” mixed in with Lupin III called “Lupine III”. The trick worked, Honda poked Isaacs’s in the eyes and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Yoshihiko then pinned Honda to become champion. Kazuki Hirata grabbed Yoshihiko and used it to hit Yuni with. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko with a Fire Thunder Driver to win the belt. Hirata went on to eliminate five opponents in quick succession by using his HIRATA GO! glasses to make them dance and drop their guards. Only Yuni was left and the kid pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana to win the title and the Battle Royal! Yuni celebrated with Makoto Oishi who lifted him up on his shoulder. Oishi then betrayed Yuni and gave him a Backbreaker to win the belt from him! His moment of glory was cut short when Yuu returned. She flipped him over with a throw and dropped him with the Last Ride to regain her title. She was then chased away from ringside by more wrestlers. When Yuu was finally safe and alone, she had an interview and revealed that she does the Last Ride in dedication to the late Super Uchu Power. She was very happy to do it in a DDT Korakuen Hall show. Yuu said she loves the Iron Man Title the most in the world and wonders if there is anybody else who cherishes it as much as she does.

The show kicked off with an NωA musical performance. While they were singing, Yuu appeared with the Iron Man Title and she was chased around the ring by other wrestlers. When she escaped, the match went on as normal and NωA won. Shunma Katsumata & MAO cut off Kouki Iwasaki and focused their attacks on Mizuki Watase. MAO hit Watase with the Screw High Kick and Katsumata got rid of Iwasaki with a Lightning Spiral. Katsumata then pinned Watase with the Firebird Splash.

Diego rolled away from Daiki Shimomura’s Swanton Bomb then hit him with the VHS to win the dark match.

The DDT roster including wrestlers from DNA, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling gathered in the ring for the announcement of the company becoming a member of CyberAgent group. Sanshiro Takagi was accompanied by the president of CyberAgent, Susumu Fujita. Takagi told everyone he is staying on as the company president and will continue to run DDT as normal. He brought up AbemaTV as a CyberAgent property that is influential among the younger generation. DDT can now use that to their advantage. With this new relationship, Takagi wants DDT to become the No. 1 pro wrestling company in the industry! Susumu admitted he was not a pro wrestling fan but enjoyed watching DDT’s Street Wrestling and Beer Garden shows. He even attended the Beer Garden show hosted by Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine and came away impressed by DDT’s vision of pro wrestling. He assures all of the fans that he does not want DDT to change at all. He wants to make DDT bigger of course but has faith in Takagi’s leadership to make DDT No. 1 in the future. Takagi then rallied the wrestlers group by group. DDT will make the next step. The DDT wrestlers cheered. DNA will make the next step. The DNA wrestlers cheered. BASARA will make the next step. The BASARA wrestlers cheered. Tokyo Joshi will make the next step. The Joshi wrestlers cheered. Ganpuro will make the next step. Ken Ohka cheered then realised he was the only Ganpuro wrestler in the ring.

Takagi reappeared at the end of the show to remind everyone he will continue to be DDT president and as president he will continue to enrich the pro wrestling world.

The schedule for the first ever D King Grand Prix was revealed. There will be 8 shows featuring tournament matches starting on 5th January in Shinjuku FACE with the final taking place at Korakuen Hall on 28th January.

DDT will be teaming up with Ring☆Dream once more to produce a 3rd wrestling show together on 16th December. Two new characters for the game based on DDT wrestlers will be unveiled at next month’s Korakuen show.

DDT will do two matches at the Tokyo Ramen Show 2017 on 26th October.

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!
