8. Pro Wrestling Koshien 2017 – Final: Naomi Yoshimura defeated MAO with the Throwaway Power Bomb (14:19).

DNA prepared for its next chapter by holding the Pro Wrestling Koshien tournament. Not only that but they introduced a brand new helix looking logo too. Naomi Yoshimura powered through the tournament beating Dai Suzuki, Mizuki Watase and MAO to be crowned the winner. Yoshimura said the result was proof that he is the strongest in DNA. With Kazusada Higuchi now gone, Yoshimura will take his place as the ace. He is prepared to do what it takes to make DNA interesting.

A big mystery surrounding the tournament involved an unknown person in biker gear attacking the wrestlers. He showed up again after the Yoshimura Vs Suzuki match. But in a surprise he did not attack Suzuki like he did the first time they met. Instead he shook his hand, hugged him and helped walk him away from the ring. The biker reappeared during Yoshimura’s victory speech but was immediately and easily stopped by Rekka. The biker was unmasked and revealed to be… Dai Suzuki? Yoshimura laughed and told everyone to look forward to his fun ideas.

In non-tournament action, Masato Kamino had his debut match teaming with Rekka to take on Gran MilliMeters. Kamino appeared with a flashy entrance jacket that was rumoured to cost 100,000 yen to make. He took the pinfall loss as expected he was proud of his debut. He had been training for two and a half years for this match. It took so long because of knee injuries derailing him. But his father told he his dreams will come true if he never gives up.

DNA’s 3rd chapter will officially begin with their 7th September show in Shin-Kiba. Mike Bailey, Royce Isaacs and Tanomusaku Toba will be on the show along with Koju Takeda from Triple Six and Keisuke Okuda from IGF. Okuda is planning to become a regular wrestler for DNA. He had been watching the tournament and considered the wrestling minor league. He warned that he is coming to DNA to destroy everyone but wants everyone in DNA to use that as motivation. Do not be afraid of him, come out and fight!

Kota Umeda announced his goal is to return from injury in time for the Kumamoto show on 9th December.

1. Gorgeous Matsuno Triumphant Match!: Gorgeous Matsuno, Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei defeated Yukio Collection A.T., Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi when Matsuno pinned Hirata with a Cradle (8:05).
2. NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Rice Ball Wrestling: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Sumire Natsu & Riho (w/ Norika Asatte) when Martha pinned Natsu with a Jacknife and Backslide Pin Combo (15:31).
3. 3 Way Match: Daisuke Kiso defeated KUDO and DJ Nira by Disqualification when Nira assaulted the referee (11:05).
4. Shuten-dōji Vs Monster Army: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi (w/ Kota Umeda) defeated Colonel Ima, Private Honda & Superior Private Higuchi (w/ Sgt. Hino) when Sakaguchi pinned Honda with the Right Knee Of God (11:25).

Shuten-dōji were tasked with defending their show from an invasion by the revived Monster Army. In the main even Yuji Hino came out with his soldiers Hoshitango, Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda. Shuten-dōji were backed up by Kota Umeda. When Shuten-dōji won the match, Masahiro Taknashi got everyone to chant Umeda’s name. Umeda said it’s been a long time since he wrestled but his foot is still recovering. He hopes to return in time for the Dramatic General Election so he can help Shuten-dōji make it to first place.

On the surface Match #3 looked like it was KUDO Vs DJ Nira. It went on as any usual match would until Nira gave the referee Daisuke Kiso the Rocket Punch. When Kiso called for the match to end in a disqualification it was revealed to be a 3 Way Match all along and Kiso was the third competitor! Kiso declared himself the winner.

Martha used her mop to pin down Sumire Natsu’s shoulders during a Backslide Pin then Saki-nami added a Jackknife to get the three count. After the match Saki told Riho see shes a little bit of beauty in her but Natsu is ugly and cheap when she wears a rice ball hat on her head. Saki suddenly felt weak and was about to collapse until Yukio Saint Laurent arrived and handed her a small bottle of incense. Saki drank from it and felt better.

Kazuki Hirata was confused by the appearance of Yukio Collection A.T. He wondered if it was Yukio Sakaguchi in disguise. Yukio in response asked if Hirata was Hirata Collection A.T. During the match Yukio attacked everyone during his model walk, especially Hirata. Gorgeous Matsuno missed the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow on Hirata so Yukio just threw him on top for the pin. Toru Owashi asked Matsuno where he went while he was deported from Japan. Matsuno said Fukushima. Owashi told him he was supposed to be banished from the entire country so he should please leave immediately. Matsuno protested and said he was supposed to be performing on tomorrow’s show but everyone grabbed him and carried him out of the building.

KUDO & Sakaguchi met NEO Biishiki-gun for the first time during the opening introductions. Neither group recognised the other. Saki-nami said Sakaguchi reminded her of her doctor but with barbaric eyes. KUDO had to stop Sakaguchi from getting angry by offering a toast. Saki said that Martha is a little girl who is too young to drink but today is a special occasion so she was allowed to join in.

2. Masahiro Takanashi Trials 3 Way Match Final Round!: Yuto Aijima defeated Antonio Honda and Masahiro Takanashi when Aijima pinned both Honda and Takanashi after a Body Slam on Honda and a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on Takanashi (7:40).

4. Hakata Specialty! Promotion Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Toru Owashi defeated Mike Bailey & Danshoku Dino when HARASHIMA pinned Dino with the Somato (13:23).
5. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki & MAO when Takeshita pinned MAO with the Surprise Rose (11:01).
6. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Last Man Standing Match: Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Joey Ryan (I/c) ended in a Double KO (23:58).
*V3 for Sasaki. V? for Joey Ryan.
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) defeated KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi when Higuchi pinned Sakaguchi with a Nodowa Bomb (23:20).
*V2 for YaroZ.

In a repeat of the ending to their singles match last month, Kazusada Higuchi used Power Bombs to fight out of Yukio Sakaguchi’s Triangle Choke. Sakaguchi kept hold of the Choke for as long as he could. However this time Higuchi kept his consciousness and fully broke Sakaguchi with the Nodowa Bomb. Not only did Sakaguchi let go of the move but he was also too beaten to kick out of the pin. Both KUDO & Sakaguchi offered to shake Shigehiro Irie & Higuchi’s hands after the match. The KO-D Tag Team Champions instead chose to bow as a show of respect. Higuchi said he could not have won the match without Irie. In return Irie talked about how much he admires Higuchi’s strength.

The Last Man Standing grudge match between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan ended in a draw. Sasaki provoked Ryan by bringing out a picture of Ryan’s wife Laura James to the ring with him. The match became more violent as time went by. Sasaki used a chair for his Super Elbow Drop and also to add extra pain to the Cross Facelock. He then poured thumbtacks into Ryan’s tights and went to attack him with the chair. Ryan fought back by pouring thumbtacks into Sasaki’s mouth and Super Kicking him afterwards. Ryan then Speared Sasaki from the apron through a table outside the ring! When Sasaki got back up, Ryan set up several chairs next to each other in the ring then climbed the ropes. Sasaki stopped him, climbed up the ropes too and then gave Ryan a Superplex onto the chairs! Both of them could not answer the 10 count so the match was ruled a draw. Since the DDT Extreme Title and Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title were both on the line, the result counts as successful title defences for both men. Both Sasaki and Ryan demanded a rematch because neither of them lost.

When ALL OUT were finished celebrating their win in the ring, Naomi Yoshimura came out with his latest act of revenge against Konosuke Takeshita. This time he was stealing Takeshita’s power blocks. Takeshita is always training with power blocks when he warms up for his matches so without them he can’t warm up properly anymore. However Takeshita pointed out that both DDT and Big Japan were having shows in Hakata Star Lane today and it was Big Japan who were supplying the equipment. Those aren’t his power blocks, they belong to a Big Japan wrestler. Suddenly out came Yuji Okabayashi! He grabbed the power blocks from Yoshimura, yelled at him to never disturb his training again and left. Yoshimura tried to act like he was still stealing everything important in Takeshita’s life and soon it will include the KO-D Openweight Championship. Takeshita told Yoshimura to take it easy.

Danashoku Dino summoned Makoto Oishi, Nobuhiro Shimatani and Yuki Ueno out during the Hakata Specialty match. He announced that we are in the middle of the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival so they should celebrate. He then stripped the three of their clothes and they were all wearing fundoshis underneath. He then made the three of them form a pillar of asses against the corner. Unfortunately for Dino’s partner Mike Bailey he was the one who ended up face first into the pillar. With Bailey incapacitated, Dino had no help and was pinned by HARASHIMA. After the match Toru Owashi thanked HARASHIMA for winning because he was knocked out earlier by the Danshoku Nightmare VR. Owashi teaming with HARASHIMA again brought back memories of their Disaster BOX unit. Backstage Owashi claimed he was now a member of Smile Squash but HARASHIMA denied it. The match was only a Disaster BOX reunion, nothing more. Owashi then asked if HARASHIMA remembers their fellow BOX member Shogo Takagi because he still has his phone number but never calls him.

Kota Umeda greeted the crowd at the beginning of the show. He is still recovering from his injuries but he promises he will be wrestling again when DDT returns to Hakata.

Yuto Aijima was the hometown hero for the show. Before the main event began each participant was given a bouquet of flowers. Aijima’s bouquet was given to him by his own mother. The crowd was behind him and gave a big cheer when he pinned Yasu Urano to win the match for his team. Omuta said afterwards that he still tries his hardest even though he is now 50 years old. He asked the fans to come back and each bring a friend to fill up the building when he eventually has his retirement show. He then thanked Sanshiro Takagi, Akebono and Yoshihiro Takayama for their help today.

Konosuke Takeshita & Akito now have a 2-0 record as a team. They’re pleased that they were able to beat an established team like Shuten-dōji and now look forward to facing Smile Squash tomorrow.

Danshoku Dino claimed Omuta as a Gay Town after his victory. He then remembered Omuta is already a Gay Town and said its population is 70% gay. He then rallied the fans to give the middle finger against Japan’s failing birthrate.

Kota Umeda gave an update on his injury status. He hopes to be back in the ring later this year and promised he will be wrestling again when DDT returns to Omuta.

Welcome to The Future! DDT celebrated 20 years in business by running the main stage of Saitama Super Arena for “JUDGEMENT 2017”. In the main event the torch was passed as the 21 year old Konosuke Takeshita defeated HARASHIMA to become the KO-D Openweight Champion for the second time in his career. The biggest stage called for a major main event and both wrestlers delivered with a 30 minute long clash. HARASHIMA’s neck was targeted early and his title reign was under threat when Takeshita gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on the arena floor. HARASHIMA was left outside to get counted out but he returned on 18. He then turned the tables by avoiding a Dragon Suplex and attacking Takeshita’s knees. The damaged limb would later prevent Takeshita from hitting the German Suplex because HARASHIMA would grab onto them. A Short Range Lariat kept him down for a two count but that only riled HARASHIMA up and made him provoke Takeshita to attack even harder. Takeshita went high risk by placing HARASHIMA on the top turnbuckle. That backfired when HARASHIMA turned it into an Avalanche Reverse Frankensteiner followed by the Somato! Takeshita kicked out at two so HARASHIMA went for the Swan Dive Somato. Takeshita caught him in mid-air but HARASHIMA twisted around for another Reverse Frankensteiner. This time Takeshita blocked it and gave HARASHIMA a Croyt’s Wrath style German Suplex for a nearfall. HARASHIMA took control again and this time gave Takeshita the Yama-ori head drop. With both men completely spent they traded Elbow Smashes until Takeshita punched the champion and followed up with the Bionic Elbow taken from his mentor Antonio Honda. He hit the German Suplex but HARASHIMA was still able to kick out. Finally Takeshita crossed HARASHIMA’s arms together for one more German Suplex and this time the champion was down for the count.

Takeshita thanked HARASHIMA after the match. Takeshita became a pro wrestler because he loves DDT so to be in the main event for the company’s 20th Anniversary means everything to him. He feels the pressure of being the future of this company but he will show everyone why he deserves that title as DDT moves into its 21st year. When the new champion finished the prize ceremony he was approached by Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. Sasaki said he knew Takeshita would beat HARASHIMA then pretended to cry. In truth, he doesn’t care about Takeshita’s accomplishment. DAMNATION will finish him and to prove it his first challenger will be Tetsuya Endo! Takeshita’s former friend said he does not know what the future really is but he’s not interested. In fact, the future he sees now is an eyesore. Takeshita accepted the challenge and they will get their match at Korakuen Hall on 29th April. The show then ended with a curtain call to DDT’s old theme song “Into The Light”. The final scene in the ring had Takeshita and HARASHIMA fist bump and agree to wrestle each other again some day. HARASHIMA went to leave the ring but Takeshita stopped him so they could leave together.

The weapons in the DDT Extreme Title match were provided by a company called Seki-chu and boy did Jun Kasai and Daisuke Sasaki use a lot of them. Tables, ladders, chairs, trash cans, rakes and even a wire mesh fence were used throughout the match. Sasaki came out on top but he had to put his body on the line to do so. Kasai was still alive and kicking after an Avalanche Power Bomb from the ladder through the fence. Even the NOW OR NEVER couldn’t put Kasai away. So Sasaki had to put Kasai on a table and climb up the ladder. With his last words being “I am Charisma!” Sasaki jumped off the ladder and hit a Diving Elbow Drop on Kasai. The table didn’t break but Kasai did and Sasaki became the new Extreme Champion! He threw the belt away, claiming he does not need it. He has words to say to Kasai, many of them that cannot be broadcast on TV but he cannot deny Kasai was at his craziest today. Still, Sasaki won’t conform. He won’t kiss ass. And he definitely won’t get married. “We are DAMNATION! And I am the Charisma, Daisuke Sasaki!”

Saitama Super Arena was taken back to the Romance Of The Three Kingdoms for a special 6-Man Tag promoting the Nobunaga’s Ambition video game. The series produce Kou Shibusawa greeted the audience before the match, telling everyone to enjoy video games and pro wrestling. All the wrestlers took part in their character costumes. Sanshiro Takagi wasted no time in building a castle of chairs in the ring. It was no surprise to anyone that he was thrown into the castle later. Isami Kodaka took out Daisuke Sekimoto with a Topé Suicida. Keiji Muto and Jun Akiyama faced off and had a stalemate when Akiyama hit the Exploder Suplex then Muto immediately fired back with the Shining Wizard. That left Kota Ibushi to give Takagi the Sit Down Last Ride followed by the Phoenix Splash to win the match.

When the segment was over Takagi stayed in the ring for an important announcement. He is happy to see so many people come out to see DDT’s 20th Anniversary. There is nothing left for him to do so he will retire immediately. Even though he is going away he is confident that DDT will grow bigger and bigger without him. He has no regrets even though he had announced a major goal at the 15th Anniversary show in Budokan Hall that never came to pass. He demanded the staff at ringside to give him the 10 bell salute and thanked everyone he could during each ringing of the bell. On the 8th toll he suddenly received a phone call. It turns out there is something left for him to do after all. Suddenly a picture of the Tokyo Dome appeared on the screen. Takagi announced that DDT will hold a Street Wrestling Match inside the Tokyo Dome later this year! Takagi immediately cancelled his plans to retire. There are still dreams and ambitions for DDT to come true!

Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi overcame an ambush by DAMNATION to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles over their shoulders. Even though Sakaguchi’s goal for the match was to kill Endo, he instead settled with pinning Shuji Ishikawa to win the match. Not an easy feat at all! Ishikawa blocked the Right Knee Of God the first time so Sakaguchi had to climb the turnbuckles and hit an elevated version of his finisher to put the big dog down. Their victory ceremony was interrupted when Danshoku Dino snuck into the ring and gave the match sponsor a Lip Lock. Dino told Funaki he’s made a lot of enemies over his career but he has never fought a hybrid body like Dino’s, nor has he fought a real Dramatic Dream Team like Danshoku Dino & Yoshihiro Takayama! Dino is here to lay out the challenge. Real No Fear wants the KO-D Tag Team Titles! Funaki realised the match is unavoidable. He and Sakaguchi will fight Real No Fear. But until then the champions will drink.

There is a lot to go through for the next match. A lot! At some point in the show Joey Ryan won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. I’ll get into more detail with that later. For now just know that Ryan now had to defend the championship against Danshoku Dino in an Anal Explosion Death Match. But first, Donald Trump appeared for a complete English PowerPoint presentation. Trump revealed that the most powerful person in DDT is not the president Sanshiro Takagi or the KO-D Champion HARASHIMA. It is really the referee Yukinori Matsui! If there is one thing that Matsui hates more than anything else in wrestling it is explicit sexual humour. Do too much of it in front of Matsui and you will get fired. However Dino is the “World’s Strongest Gay Wrestler” and Ryan is the “World’s Strongest Penis Fighter”. Matsui will watch the match backstage so they need to find a way to wrestle explicitly in a way that won’t offend him. Somehow, some way, an Anal Explosion Death Match is acceptable because in this situation “ANAL” stands for “All Nations Anal Love”. If that wasn’t enough, Ryan revealed that Dino’s friend and former Iron Man Champion Ryota Yamazato has been kidnapped by foreign agents. In 20 minute’s time Yamazato’s rear end will be used for the Anal Explosion unless Dino can win the match before then.

The time began to count down and the match was ready to begin. But first the National Anthems of America and Japan had to be played. Additional commentary was provided by Trump and Guanchulo in English, Hoshitango in Spanish and Rekka in Chinese. As the match went on Matsui kept a close eye on the action from backstage. Dino and Ryan fought up the ramp towards the commentary stations. Ryan’s penis flung Dino off the ramp and crashing through the Spanish announce table. Dino was later thrown off the top turnbuckle and he crashed through the Chinese table. The commentators were so mad that they attacked Ryan but he fought them off with his penis. When Dino recovered he gathered the commentators in the ring and placed them on the corner turnbuckles with their backsides exposed. He then overpowered Dino’s penis, getting revenge for the spot that caused all this in the first place. By the time he put the Lip Lock on Ryan, Matsui had seen enough and made his way to the ring. Trump realised the match was in danger of being cancelled so he sprinted backstage. Some of the DNA wrestlers distracted Matsui by treating him like a celebrity, shaking his hand and asking for autographs. Then a mascot blocked his path but Matsui knocked it down with one punch. He then shook its hand. Matsui walked past the women’s locker room and the temptation to peak inside was too much. When it turned out that Cherry was the only person in there Matsui was grossed out and moved on. Finally Trump caught up with Matsui and confronted him. They chopped each other back and forth until they both leaned in closer and closer. Then they kissed. Back in the ring Dino pulled Ryan’s lollipop out of one of the commentator’s backside and he then put it in Ryan’s mouth. That stunned Ryan long enough for Dino to do the Danshoku Driver for the victory. The two congratulated each other after the match and Ryan handed both the Iron Man Title and the bomb button over to Dino. Dino threw the button away and left his buddy Yamazato to get his ass exploded with three firecrackers outside the building. The screen went blank and we’re left with the message “There can be no peace on earth without pro wrestling” along with a picture of Sanshiro Takagi naked. Backstage Dino and Ryan started to act like friends but quickly started fighting again over the Iron Man Title.

Shungo Oyama did well in his debut but ultimately fell to Yoshihiro Takayama. The two locked up and threw punches in a scene that resembled Takayama’s famous fight with Don Frye. The slugfest ended with Takayama pinning Oyama with the Everest German Suplex. Dick Togo respected Oyama’s effort and noticed Oyama respects pro wrestling enough to fear it. KUDO hopes to team with Oyama again if Oyama decides to continue wrestling. Oyama said he felt at home fighting in Saitama Super Arena again.

Miyu Yamashita has caught Meiko Satomura’s attention but she’ll probably wish she hadn’t. Satomura pinned Yamashita to win the women’s match for her team but their interaction did not end there. Yamashita stood up to her from the apron after the match and Satomura’s reaction was to kick her away. In the post-match interview Satomura said she see will never forget what she saw in Yamashita’s eyes today. She’s motivated, that’s for sure. She would like to fight her one on one. Satomura’s partners however she is more friendly with. She felt a sense of unity with Saki Akai and Syoko Nakajima throughout the match. Akai admitted feeling a little of jealous of Yamashita for firing up Satomura. Aja Kong thought Nakajima was okay but small. Cherry was happy to wrestle in front of many fans and she appreciates the women coming together for this show when she previously spent years as the only female wrestler in DDT.

In the match between Shigehiro Irie and Mike Bailey, the Tazzmission proved to be the difference maker. Irie caught Bailey with the submission hold in mid-air and turned it into a Camel Clutch variat to make Speedball tap out. Irie still isn’t finished with his warrior training but at least he got to show everyone in Japan that his trips to America are not going to waste. Irie credited Ohio’s Rockstar Pro Wrestling in particular for his recent improvement. Bailey says Irie is now on the same level as HARASHIMA and Takeshita.

In the 8-Man Tag Match, Yuni found an opportunity to wear the Hirata GO! glasses and start dancing. Kazuki Hirata ruined the moment by knocking Yuni out with a chop to the back of the neck. Hirata put the glasses on and cleared the ring with his dance fighting. But he was then stopped with a Triple Dropkick from Jaguar Yokota, Keisuke Ishii & Masahiro Takanashi. Yuni then pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana.

The 3 Way Trios match for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles was a crazy sprint but NωA came out of it with the belts. Yasu Urano countered Kazusada Higuchu’s Power Bomb into a Frankensteiner but Urano was then knocked down by MAO’s Screw Kick. Urano avoided the Firebird Splash from Shunma Katsumata but didn’t see MAO coming with the Cannonball 450. That move won NωA the championship and all three were in tears when they were handed the belts.

Many wrestlers from DDT’s past, some unexpected, came back for the Dramatic Rumble with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and King Of Dark Title both on the line. MIKAMI was out first with his ladder. Daichi Kakimoto was a surprise entrant wearing the mask he used in his Union Pro run. Poison Sawada JULIE eliminated loads of people with his snake magic. Unfortunately his endurance is not what it used to be and he fainted from overuse. Gorgeous Matsuno eliminated JULIE by accident when DJ Nira (who was not an official participant) pushed Matsuno on top of JULIE with his umbrella. Mad Paulie eliminated Gota Ihashi which means Ihashi is still the King Of Dark Champion. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi stood on top of Kotatsu and leapt off it to deliver a super Michinoku Driver II to Yoshihiko. Kotatsu eliminated a few wrestlers with its comfy quilt until Guanchulo decided to wear Kotatsu over him like a backpack. Munenori Sawa was the last surprise entrant. He hit Guanchulo with a Rabbit Punch and Guanchulo fell on top of Kotatsu. That counted as a pin so Guanchulo won the Iron Man Title. Ken Ohka was the final entrant but he and Sawa spent so long singing to his entrance music that Guanchulo eliminated them both to win the Rumble. His celebration was short lived when Yoshihiko dove on top of him from the stage to win the belt. Later on in the show Kotatsu won the title by pinning Yoshihiko backstage. Joey Ryan congratulated Kotatsu then used his penis strength to flip it over and claim the title for himself.

Mil Clown was accidentally unmasked during the Tokyo Joshi Pro dark match. Her mask flew off when Azusa Takaigawa gave her the X Factor. As much as she tried to hide her face, Clown eventually gave up and focused on beating Takigawa with the Magical Merry Go Round followed by the Mil Clutch α. Clown fled the ring as soon as she got her mask back on.

Naomi Yoshimura continues his aggressive streak by winning the DNA dark match for his team.

Kota Umeda was invited to the ring during the opening announcements. He was at the show as Yoshihiko’s handler but informed everyone that his recovery is going well and he will return to the ring this year. The other injured DNA wrestler Suguru Miyatake was supposed to be at the show but had to miss it because of the flu.

Naomichi Marufuji will participate at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” in Sumo Hall on 20th August.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey (c) defeated Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii when Bailey pinned Dino with the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop (24:00).
*V1 for Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey.

As mentioned after yesterday’s show, Mike Bailey wanted nothing to do with Danshoku Dino in the main event. Dino chased him around ringside until Bailey had to fend him off with kicks. It wasn’t any better for Konosuke Takeshita, he missed a Lariat to Keisuke Ishii and hit his arm off the ring post. Dino & Ishii took advantage and worked over the arm. They tried a Go 2 Sleep style set up for the Danshoku Driver to Bailey but Takeshita cut them off. Takeshita countered Ishii’s Kneel Kick with a Lariat and that took him out of the match. Bailey secured the win with a Buzzsaw Kick to Dino followed by the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop. Bailey said after the match that his problem with Dino has nothing to do with his sexual preference. It’s because Dino keeps grabbing men’s crotches without their consent. Aside from that Bailey called him a good wrestler and “The No. 1 Gay”. With that out of the way Bailey then asked Amon Tsurumi for a request. He recently won the DNA Grand Prix and the KO-D Tag Team Titles so now he wants a shot at the KO-D Openweight Title! Tsurumi confirmed that the winner of HARASHIMA Vs Shigehiro Irie will face Bailey at Korakuen Hall on 3rd January with the title on the line!

It’s all falling apart for DAMNATION, they have now lost all of their championships! In the lead up to this match, Daisuke Sasaki said if DAMNATION lost the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles to Shuten-dōji then they should split up. Kota Umeda was at ringside using crutches to stand so he could cheer on his stablemates. Early in the match Sasaki grabbed Masahiro Takanashi’s legs from the apron and pulled him outside the ring. That led to a ringside brawl where Sasaki grabbed Umeda’s crutch and then hit him with it. The end came when Takanashi escaped Sasaki’s Vietnam Driver II. Sasaki fought off the Takatonic but was surprised when Takanashi switched to the Bacchus. That was enough for the three count and the title change! Sasaki was distraught by the result. DAMNATION has lost all of its championships in the space of a week and they deserve to be dissolved because of this! While Sasaki had a mental breakdown backstage, Shuji Ishikawa demanded the group get a rematch at Korakuen Hall on Christmas Day. Mad Paulie already has a match set for that show so Ishikawa will take his spot on the team. The new champions welcome the decision. Takanashi said Sasaki should go wash dishes for DDT’s restaurants if he loses again. As far as he is concerned, Sasaki owed a debt to Shuten-dōji when he lost and that debt was paid for with the 6-Man Tag Titles. If Sasaki loses again, he’ll owe Shuten-dōji another debt and he has nothing left that they want so he may as well start from zero like a rookie and do chores.

Shigehiro Irie was happy to play with his new friend Yoshihiro Takayama in Hakata! He has nothing to be afraid of because his new friend is big and strong! Takayama gave Irie his stamp of approval to be the next KO-D Champion! Together they yelled “No Fear!”

Itoh Maki was all business for her debut wrestling match. After watching Miyu Yamashita’s dance entrance she told her she wasn’t here to do the same. Itoh’s offence included Elbow Strikes, a Body Slam, a Dropkick and even a Headbutt. Yamashita defeated her with a Skewered Knee Strike followed by the Attitude Adjustment. Yamashita said she was happy to be back in her home city of Fukuoka and she was pleased with Maki’s performance. Her true feelings were showcased in the ring because she worked hard. Yamashita also said from now on she and Maki are rivals so they can have more exciting matches together in Fukuoka. Maki admitted defeat but claims she has a cuter face than Yamashita.
