*V1 for DAMNATION.

DAMNATION faced a serious challenge from DISASTER BOX. The title contenders dropped the comedy and went in determined to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. It was clear when Kazuki Hirata blocked Tetsuya Endo’s Shooting Star Press, causing big damage to Endo’s ribs. Soma Takao saved the match for DAMNATION by pulling the referee out of the ring while Naomi Yoshimura had Endo pinned. Endo wiped out Toru Owashi & Hirata with the Sasuke Special, leaving Yuji Hino to carry on the heavy lifting from that point on. Hino lifted that load by Fucking BOMBing Yoshimura for the victory.

Endo told they audience that DAMNATION couldn’t afford to lost against such small fish. He accused DDT of leaving him alone after he lost the KO-D Openweight Title to Jun Akiyama back in February (Hisaya Imabayashi denied that) so Endo was going to do something selfish. He demanded the next KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles defence to take place in his hometown of Shiroishi on 18th July! Imabayashi accepted the demand which caught Endo by surprise. He thought there would have been some resistance but the GM said it was fair for the champion to want such a thing. Someone in the audience not paying attention shouted where the show was and Endo responded it is in Shiroishi, a beautiful city just like Kumamoto. That got a good response from the local fans.

Before the semi-main event took place, Saki Akai received a one year pass for Kumamoto Castle Natural Hot Spring (a location previously used for DDT’s Street Wrestling matches) from the director. Then suddenly Shinya Aoki ran into the ring and pinned Akai with a School Boy to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title! Aoki then ran away but was ordered to re-enter the ring to wrestle his tag match happening next. His tag partner Yukio Naya dropped the fall, submitting to the Walls Of Takeshita. The focus then switched to Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno promoting their DDT Vs NOAH match at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” next week.

Twice now HARASHIMA has won recent matches with the Front Neck Lock to send a message to Akiyama. He got it alright and used the same move to submit Keigo Nakamura while HARASHIMA could only stand nearby and watch. The two had a stare down after the match. Today was the last preview match so next time they are in the ring together is when the KO-D Openweight Title is on the line!

MAO’s unusual movements threw Yuki Iino off his game and left him confused at points. It led to Iino losing his temper and trying to first fight Daisuke Kiso and then Hideki Okatani, thinking they were both MAO. Iino eventually got his head straight but still went charging in for his attacks without thinking. MAO was able to catch Iino with the Michinoku Driver II twice with the second time getting him the win.

Something was odd about Daisuke Sasaki when the 3 Way Match began. He had the kanji “男” (otoko/man, the first character in Danshoku Dieno’s name) written on his forehead and started behaving in a Danshoku-like manner. It was then revealed that Dieno brainwashed him so they could gang up on Shunma Katsumata! After a Lip Lock ref bump happened, Toui Kojima ran into the ring to rescue Katsumata and win approval from The 37KAMIINA. Sasaki grabbed Kojima and they briefly fought outside of the room. Sasaki disappeared but Kojima returned looking like he would rescue Katsumata from Dieno again. Instead Kojima took off his clothes to reveal he was wearing a Danshoku outfit underneath! Kojima grabbed Katsumata to do unspeakable things to him and Yukinori Matsui called off the match once he regained consciousness.

BASARA “BASARA 158 ~THE 11TH FOX PRINCE~”, 05/06/2021
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2A: Minoru Fujita Vs Daiki Shimomura

Only one Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ match is happening on this show because Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura ended in a time limit draw, eliminating both of them from the tournament. Yasu Urano receives a bye straight to the semi-finals because of this. Daiki Shimomura is coming off of the biggest upset in Round 1, beating two time Itadaki winner Ryota Nakatsu. However that was under 2 Count Rules. Can he do the same against the veteran Minoru Fujita under the normal ruleset?

BASARA “BASARA 159 ~THE 12TH FOX PRINCE~”, 05/06/2021
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2C: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs SAGAT
2. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2D: FUMA Vs Isami Kodaka

The other half of the bracket isn’t missing anything. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi is freshly motivated coming off of his 10th Anniversary show and his win over Takumi Tsukamoto in Round 1. His former ally SAGAT with his wild fighting style is waiting for him next. Meanwhile the Isami Kodaka versus FUMA rivalry is reignited with their latest battle coming up.

10. KO-D Openweight Title – Triple Main Event II: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs HARASHIMA
11. GHC Heavyweight Title – Triple Main Event III: Keiji Muto (c) Vs Naomichi Marufuji

The contracts have been signed for the three championship matches. The match order was decided by measuring the career achievements of the three current champions. That means the GHC Heavyweight Title match will be the last match on the show, the KO-D Openweight Title match will be before the GHC match and the Princess Of Princess Title match will be before the KO-D match.

Super Sasadango Machine tried to invade the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall on Saturday to negotiate who he will fight at Saitama Super Arena. Unfortunately he doesn’t understand how wrestlers are able to crash other companies and couldn’t get past the entrance because he had no ticket for the show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Maki Itoh has a grand vision for 121000000. She wants herself and Miyu Yamashita to hold all the championships in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Yamashita can have the Princess Title, Itoh can get back the International Princess Title and they will also take one Princess Tag Team Title belt each. Now comes the tough job, beating NEO Biishiki-gun. They did it once before in February but NEO Biishiki-gun got their win back in the Max Heart Tournament final a month later. Time for the rubber match!

Now 20 years old, Marika Kobashi is challenging for her first singles title to prove she has grown up. There is some jealousy behind the move because she didn’t like seeing Hikari Noa win the IP Title before she did.

BASARA “BASARA 161 ~GLITTER~”, 29/06/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi Final: Winner Of Match 2A Vs Yasu Urano
2. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi Final: Winner Of Match 2C Vs Winner Of Match 2D

Urano waits for the winner of Fujita Vs Shimomura.


Yoshimura’s King Of DDT Spot In Doubt, CyberFight Festival Match Dump

May 11, 2021

Based on the instructions of the extended state of emergency and the guidelines presented by all of the venues, the remaining DDT and Ganbare☆Pro shows this month are allowed to go ahead with fans in attendance. A combination of holding shows in areas outside of the emergency zones and at small venues inside said zones seems to be the reason why this is happening. Tokyo Joshi Pro will announce their plans later although they today confirmed their show in Osaka on the 22nd has been pushed back to July. Their only other shows to come this month is one this coming Saturday and the PPV on the 29th. I have my concerns about “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” going ahead even though they should be free to run the show by the time June rolls around. Cramming in four rosters worth of wrestlers into a day long supershow this close to the current situation sounds like it will cause a lot of trouble if they’re not careful. The news about Japan’s handling of its vaccinations sounds really bad too.

DDT “ULTIMATE TAG LEAGUE 2021 IN SENDAI!!”, 15/05/2021
Miyagi Sendai PIT

1. Akito & Toui Kojima Vs Keigo Nakamura & Hideki Okatani
2. Danshoku Dieno & Shunma Katsumata Vs Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai
3. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yusuke Okada, Yuki Iino & Yukio Naya
4. DAMNATION Vs The 37KAMIINA! A Special 6-Man Tag Match Where Tetsuya Endo From Shiroishi City And MAO From Osaki City Will Fight For Miyagi’s Will And Pride!: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Yuki Ueno & MAO
5. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi (0) Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino (3)
6. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (2) Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda (2)

Two rounds in, three more to go. DAMNATION can increase their lead in first place and make things worse for Junretsu. They can’t rest easy though because either Eruption or The Iyasareru won’t far behind.

DDT “ULTIMATE TAG LEAGUE 2021 IN KOBE!!”, 23/05/2021
Kobe Art Center

1. MAO Vs Hideki Okatani
2. 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Toru Owashi Vs Keigo Nakamura

6. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda
7. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

When the field for this year’s King Of DDT was revealed, one wrestler who was left off went to Twitter to give his opinion about it. Yuki Iino doesn’t understand why Naomi Yoshimura was picked to enter the tournament over him. He challenged Yoshimura to a match to prove he deserves the spot instead. Yoshimura accepted the challenge and the card, which was already completed, had to be changed for the match to happen.

3. Tenjin Specialty! Parental Misfortune Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes Vs Konosuke Takeshita & MAO

Yuto Aijima will be on the show. I never have anything to write about him and Azul Dragon.

3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Akito

The Ultimate Tag League will be heading into its final day at this point so all of the wrestlers involved have non-tournament matches to keep them busy until then.

DDT “AUDIENCE 2021 TOUR IN KUMAMOTO”, 30/05/2021
Kumamoto Castle Hall Civic Hall

1. Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs Shinya Aoki & Yukio Naya
2. Burn, The Land Of Fire! Burn, DDT! Kumamoto Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match: Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Yusuke Okada Vs HARASHIMA, Chris Brookes & Keigo Nakamura
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino (c) Vs Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazuki Hirata

Here’s the destination for DISASTER BOX Vs DAMNATION. The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles will be defended for the first time since March.

Shinya Aoki returns to DDT after a successful fight at ONE Championship back in April. An interesting path opens up for him if he and Yukio Naya can beat Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno. I can see a possible DDT UNIVERSAL Title shot in his future.

9. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs HARASHIMA
10. GHC Heavyweight Title: Keiji Muto (c) Vs Naomichi Marufuji

A ton of matches added to the show courtesy of DDT and Tokyo Joshi. There’s still more to come believe it or not. Yuki Arai is wrestling on the show after all and gets another crack against Maki Itoh in a trios match. Another thing to note is the mystery partner in the opening match of the STARTING BATTLE pre-show. Every member of the TJPW roster has been accounted for except for the women from NEO Biishiki-gun. They seem to have other engagements that day so X will have to be somebody from outside of TJPW. It’s also the very first match of the day so let’s keep expectations in check. Aja Kong or Mei Suruga would make sense given how their previous appearances in TJPW went. Maybe there is a new trainee about to debut. Or how about Kendo Kashin? That sounds like something he would do.

NOAH have yet to announce their entries into the Battle Royal. I also think they will provide the fourth STARTING BATTLE match to complete the pre-show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’21 ~THE BULLET~”, 17/07/2021
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

Tokyo Joshi’s visit to Osaka on 22nd May has been postponed until July. The current state of emergency led to all venues in Osaka only allowing events to go ahead without crowds. TJPW decided it was better off to delay their show in Azalea Taisho Hall to a date when fans will be allowed to attend again.
