4. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Sasaki with the Throwaway Power Bomb (14:47).
5. Japanese English Handsome King No. 1 Decision Match: Chris Brookes defeated Makoto Oishi with the Praying Mantis Bomb (9:43).
6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Endo pinned Katsumata with a Swan Dive Firebird Splash (16:22).
7. Saki Akai, The 4th Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty Special Tag: HARASHIMA & Saki Akai defeated MAO & Asuka when HARASHIMA pinned MAO with the Somato (17:44).

Saki Akai got to join in with HARASHIMA’s usual show closing speech.

A Lariat from Konosuke Takeshita was meant to be for Tetsuya Endo but he dodged it and Akito took the hit instead. Endo then took over with Shunma Katsumata and pinned him with the Spinning Torture Rack Bomb followed by a Swan Dive Firebird Splash.

The debuting Chris Brookes got to mess around with Makoto Oishi as the two tried to one up each other with little tricks and holds. Brookes said the match was just him adjusting himself so he can get ready for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. He has seen Takeshita and Endo’s matches before and thinks he can beat either of them for the KO-D Openweight Title. But first he wants to concentrate on tomorrow’s 3 Way Tag Match with Masahiro Takanashi as his partner.

Both Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are so sick of being kicked in the balls by Daisuke Sasaki that they figured out when he sets up the move. Sasaki pulled Daisuke Kiso into Yoshimura’s way but when he went for the Low Blow, Yoshimura had him scouted and struck Sasaki down with a Lariat. He hit the Throwaway Power Bomb and Ueno recovered Kiso to count the pin. Ueno said he and Yoshimura will definitely win the KO-D Tag Team Titles and bring the belts to DISASTER BOX.

The battle of the DDT mascots saw Yukinori Matsui somehow getting the brunt of the attacks. With the ref down, Pokotan brought in a chair but couldn’t use it because Matsui was about to get up. So instead Pokotan took off its head, made a dent in it, put it back on and passed the chair over to Doradori-kun. The trick worked and Matsui disqualified Doradori-kun, thinking he attacked Pokotan with the chair. This match was booked by Kazusada Higuchi. He said he couldn’t be in the venue to see it but somehow he showed up at the end of the show to lead the audience to the exit…

Yukio Naya gets his first direct win in DDT. He wants to gradually release his strength as time goes by. Tomorrow in Nagoya he will be even stronger.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
7. Road To Wrestle Peter Pan! Special 3 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes

After their last KO-D Tag Team Titles defence, Daisuke Sasaki said that he and Soma Takao would pick who their next challengers will be. They went quiet for a few days until Sasaki emerged with an Amidakuji/Ghost Leg puzzle that decided DAMNATION’s next three challengers. Unfortunately the process was heavily flawed because the three teams picked were all impossible to book for one reason or another. Hisaya Imabayashi disregarded Sasaki’s choices and nominated proper teams instead. On this show Sasaki’s choice of challengers was himself and Yoshiaki Yatsu. Imayashi pointed out that Sasaki is already the champion so Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are getting the shot. Oddly enough Imabayashi didn’t sound negative on the idea of Sasaki having to wrestle himself.

Danshoku Dieno is trying to become immune to all martial arts in order to defeat the MMA master Shinya Aoki. His plan to do this is pit himself in a gauntlet of matches against pro wrestlers with martial art and combat sport backgrounds. Now I know what some of you are thinking. Why is he fighting a swimmer? Because Aoki proved last year that he is just as dangerous in the water than he is in the ring. The inclusion of Kabaddi is Dieno thinking outside of the box too.

1. Yuki Ueno Marunage Match: X Vs X

8. DDT Extreme Title: Akito (c) Vs Asuka
9. KO-D Tag Team Titles – Souken Holdings Presents: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Tako (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano
10. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Takagi ordered Imabayashi not to book him on the show unless he is in the main event. The only way that can happen is if he cashes in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet during or after that match.

Sasaki’s Amidakuji puzzle selected Joey Ryan & Candice LeRae as the KO-D Tag Title challengers for “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. That’s impossible because LeRae is signed to NXT and it is also too late to endorse her for a visa. Sasaki offered to sign her up for a tourist visa but shut down into depression when Imabayashi said she already registered her details with Johnny Gargano. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano are the challengers instead, creating an unwanted Smile Squash reunion with Soma Takao.

If Ueno & Yoshimura win the KO-D Tag Titles on 30th June, then they will defend the belts against HARASHIMA & Urano. Sasaki & Takao will then be demoted down to teaming with Nobuhiro Shimatani in the opening match.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda Vs X
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The last Amidakuji team was supposed to be the newly married celebrity couple Ryota Yamasato & Yu Aoi. Instead we’re getting Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato. It is possible that this title match will be cancelled if Sasaki & Takao lose the championship before the show. What is most likely to happen is the new tag champs will defend the belts in their place but DDT has not ruled out getting rid of the match altogether.

One last thing, DAMNATION have a four year plan in place for his personal goals. In 2019 they want to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles, in 2020 they want to win gold at the Olympics, in 2021 Sasaki wants to visit the moon and in 2022 Sasaki wants to get married to a divorced Candice LeRae in May of that year.

DDT “SAKI AKAI TRIUMPH! ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOJI~”, 15/06/2019
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!”

Yoshiaki Yatsu and Chris Brookes will be on the show.


DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSU BRIDGE~” Results

June 30, 2018

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSU BRIDGE~”, 30/06/2018
Kyoto KBS Hall

5. P Playful Series: Danshoku Dieno defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Danshoku Driver (9:58).
6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Guevara pinned Oishi with the 630 Splash (10:52).
7. Saki Akai 3rd Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Antonio Honda & Yoshiko when Sakaguchi pinned Honda with the Right Knee Of God (17:37).

Saki Akai was pitted against her rival Yoshiko for her return to Kyoto. When they weren’t paired together inside the ring, Yoshiko joined in with Antonio Honda’s schtick by doing the Bionic Elbow with him and putting Yukio Sakaguchi in a chokehold while he had Honda in a chokehold. Sakaguchi pinned Honda to win the match but he gave the end of show spotlight to Akai because according to him, she was the leading role today. Akai thanked everyone for coming and promised to give it her all for DDT and Kyoto.

HARASHIMA already knows that Shigehiro Irie is very strong. But today he discovered that Irie has become faster too since they last fought each other. HARASHIMA hopes he can be in full condition for Irie when the KO-D Openweight Title match is held on 22nd July.

A determined Nobuhiro Shimatani declared that today, the 30th June is the beginning of his rebellion! He then lost to Danshoku Dieno. Shimatani refused to shake Dieno’s hand after the match and tried to convince everyone again that his rebellion begins today.

Even though he was on the losing team today, MAO thinks he is on the right track towards the KO-D Tag Team Titles. All he is trying to do right now is put pressure on Tetsuya Endo. The new tag champion isn’t convinced. Endo said he and Mad Paulie won the titles from Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi so what chance do MAO & Mike Bailey have?

Konosuke Takeshita is the latest victim of the Timo Timo Timo Dragons cheating, although he almost avoided it. He didn’t fall for Hiratimo Dragon’s attempt to frame him for unmasking him. However the mask accidentally slipped off when Takeshita tried to do a Brainbuster so he was DQ’ed for that. After the match Takeshita told the rest of ALL OUT that he is now concerned. If they can’t beat the Dragons then how can they beat the Sendai Girls? Suddenly Sanshiro Takagi came out. He said he was watching the match from backstage (wearing blue tights for some reason) and he wants to help ALL OUT prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. ALL OUT’s problem is they aren’t used to wrestling against joshi. Takagi’s solution is to give ALL OUT a tune up match against the returning T2HiJoshi! It was then brought up that every member of ALL OUT has a female cousin that could wrestle in the match. So on 22nd July we will see the debuts of Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun, the ALL OUT Joshi!

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2018”, 22/07/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Next up for Shigehiro Irie is HARASHIMA. That is as long as HARASHIMA has a Right To Challenge Gauntlet. This is the match Irie wants more than anything when it comes to defending the KO-D Openweight Title. HARASHIMA is the one man in DDT that Irie cannot beat one on one. It is this impassible mountain that has sent Irie on international excursions over and over so he could get stronger. If Irie truly has a vision for what DDT should be then beating HARASHIMA may finally see it come to light.

Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. The World’s Crazy Couple Battle: Makoto Oishi & Misaki Ohata Vs Joey Ryan & Laura James

When it comes to going viral, Joey Ryan doesn’t like copycats. So when he found out that Makoto Oishi proposed to Misaki Ohata in the middle of a pro wrestling match, he wasn’t happy about it. Ryan proposed to Laura James during a match first! Clearly there’s only one place to settle this. Sumo Hall! The first match announced for “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” will be couple versus couple. You see, this is the kind of fun that John Cena and Nikki Bella are missing out on.


What Are You Doing This Sunday, DDT Prepares For The Best Ever, Heaven Summit Semi-Finals

June 22, 2018

DDT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING 2018”, 24/06/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Mizuki Watase & Aaron Anders
1. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Takatimo Dragon, Hiratimo Dragon & Toru Owashi Vs Keisuke Ishii, Antonio Honda & MAO Vs Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani
2. Worldwide Match: Mike Bailey Vs Sammy Guevara
3. “KUDO” 15th Anniversary Memorial Match: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Super Sasadango Machine
4. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata
5. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Soma Takao Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

It’s been a month since he won it but Shigehiro Irie is ready for his first KO-D Openweight Title defence. Kazusada Higuchi has been a thorn in his side in the build up to this match. Power Vs Power is to be expected here but some words from Higuchi suggests that something more will be needed to determine who wins.

How much can you take DAMNATION at their word? They promise not to cheat or interfere in the DDT Extreme Title Match for the sake of sportsmanship but other than that there hasn’t really been anything else put in place to enforce the stipulation.

KUDO is celebrating 15 years of being a pro wrestler but everyone else involved in the match have their own accomplishments from 15 years ago to celebrate from company debuts to tournament wins.

DDT’s website has given a run down on Sammy Guevara in preparation for his debut. He’s being put in the ring against Mike Bailey because he might go through the same road Bailey has been on during his DDT career so far. Guevara’s nickname of “The Best Ever” has DDT wondering if he can prove it. Whatever happens, this could be the start of a new Japanese dream for a foreign wrestler. I think they have high hopes for this lad.

April 22, 2017

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSUKYO~”, 22/04/2017
Kyoto KBS Hall
366 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi with the Endless Waltz (9:45).
2. 3 Way Match: Keisuke Ishii defeated KUDO and Shunma Katsumata when Ishii pinned Katsumata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (8:47).
3. Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mike Bailey when Hirata pinned Irie with the One Shot Miracle Cradle (11:30).
*Kazuki Hirata wins Shigehiro Irie’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
4. Yoshihiro Takayama, Danshoku Dino & Royce Isaacs defeated Toru Owashi, Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda when Takayama pinned Honda with an Armbar (15:10).
5. Saki Akai, The Second Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai defeated HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Syoko Nakajima when Akai pinned Nakajima with the Rookie Award (14:13).
6. Takeshita & Akito Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Endo pinned Takeshita with the Shooting Star Press (17:11).

Tetsuya Endo’s Shooting Star Press was at its most effective yet when he used the move to pin Konosuke Takeshita. Endo recently adopted the move as his new finisher and showed everyone that it is strong enough to beat the KO-D Openweight Champion. Endo called Takeshita a miserable champions and then said he will easily win the belt from him at Korakuen Hall next week.

Saki Akai got to enjoy her homecoming match with Shuten-dōji. When she won the match she told the audience she never thought she would return to Kyoto as a pro wrestler but she was very happy to win the match with her “older brothers”. The entire team then celebrated in the ring with some sake, the first glass of many for the rest of the night.

Danshoku Dino is putting together a new group called the International Gay Factory, or IGF for short. Royce Isaacs and his Miracle Ass is Dino’s first signing. Isaacs demonstrated his Miracle Ass by using it to split apart a pair of chopsticks before the match began. When they won their match Dino told everyone that the legend of Isaacs began today in Kyoto. It will help Dino accomplish his plans for IGF.

Kazuki Hirata surprised everyone by pinning Shigehiro Irie to win his Right To Challenge Contract. The result came when everyone in the match danced then Irie tried to interrupt it with the Beast Bomber. Hirata ducked the Bomber and rolled up Irie with the One Shot Miracle Cradle for the three count. When Hirata got over the shock of winning he realised that by holding this contract, he cannot be banished from Japan if T2Hide lose to NωA next week! Hirata promises not only to hold on to the contract but also win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Then he can move on to becoming a singles champion when he cashes in!

Danshoku Dino held a Coming Out party for Royce Isaacs at the Cholesterol Bar in Shinjuku earlier today. Isaacs explained that when he used the Lip Lock on Antonio Honda during their match at the weekend he felt comfortable with the action. Although he worked hard in America he was never happy with the situation he was in. But when he came to Japan and met Dino he was convinced to come out as gay. Dino explained that he saw the gay wrestler in Isaacs and felt a little outraged that Isaacs was holding it back. So to help him out he brought him to this bar and asked the owner Mr. Takuya if Isaacs can become accepted as a gay wrestler. Takuya said of course he would, he can even reach high enough to be No. 1! Isaacs said that even though he currently holds a Right To Challenge contract, he knows that everyone is more interested in his “Miracle Ass”. He then showed some examples of what he is talking about by using his ass to cut a banana in half, open a bottle of champagne and cook raw eggs. Dino, Takuya and Amon Tsurumi tasted each of the food and were delighted by the taste! Isaacs said everyone will get to see the Miracle Ass in action before he cashes in his RTC contract.

7. Local Triumph Of Saki Akai! Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Saki Akai, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masa Takanashi defeated Antonio Honda, Konosuke Takeshita & Cherry when Akai pinned Cherry with the Rookie Award (17:01).

DDT ventured into KBS Hall for the first time in five years. The last show is remembered for the “Zundoko Bus Incident” where the tour bus broke down on the Tomei Expressway as it was driving to the venue. The bus broke down again on the way home after the show. This show was also a homecoming for Saki Akai. She got to be in the main event with Shuten-dōji against Cherry & Happy Motels. Cherry wasn’t happy that Akai was getting all of the attention because today was also Cherry’s 42nd birthday! Akai started off the match with Antonio Honda who could not hold back his excitement when they locked up. When they broke apart Honda said Akai smelt good. Honda kept trying to smell Akai’s hair when they were in the ring together. Akai fought out of Honda’s perverted attacks and was left to go against Cherry while their partners fought each other outside the ring. Akai rolled away from the Cherryton Bomb and got the win when she hit Cherry with a Diving Cross Body followed by the Rookie Award kick.

In the final skirmish before their KO-D Tag Team Title Match, Akito & Yasu Urano got the win over Daisuke Sasaki and his pet Mad Polly. The match went wrong for Sasaki when Polly accidentally hit him with a Hammer Punch. Urano then rolled up Polly for the three count. Sasaki pressed his tag title belt against Urano’s head during their staredown after the match.

A castle of chairs was constructed for the Heian-kyō Tag Death Match. Sanshiro Takagi said the chiar castle represented Kiyomizu-dera, a temple found in Kyoto. The temple collapsed when Kazuki Hirata was thrown into it but he soon emerged from the rubble wearing his HIRATA GO! glasses. He struck Danshoku Dino in the ass with a chair during his dance and then pinned Makoto Oishi with the Viagra Driver.
