DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL. 4”, 26/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE
193 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Choun-Shiryu defeated Darkunesu K with the Chinese Bombs Away (7:35).
2. Hiroshi Yamato defeated Kikutaro with a School Boy (6:54).
3. Tetsuya Endo defeated Leo Isaka with the Shooting Star Press (12:15).
4. Shigehiro Irie & Daiki Shimomura defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Shimomura pinned Shimatani with an Inside Cradle (14:35).
5. Mad Paulie’s Five Years And A Few Months After His Birth Anniversary Match: Kohei Sato, Yuji Hino & Mad Paulie defeated Kengo Mashimo, Masashi Takeda & Keizo Matsuda when Paulie pinned Matsuda with the Reverse Splash (16:36).
6. MONDAY NIGHT WAR: Minoru Fujita defeated Daisuke Sasaki with the Modified Tombstone Piledriver (24:32).

A first time singles match turned out to be no fun and games at all. Minoru Fujita walked out fully representing his Fujita Pro Wrestling☆School and also had the Super Asia Title from Gatoh Move. Meanwhile Daisuke Sasaki came out still carrying the stolen DDT Universal Title. The atmosphere quickly turned sour when Sasaki ignored Fujita’s offer for a handshake. A furious Fujita then said he would kill Sasaki and went to poke his eyes out. Sasaki fought back by biting his fingers. The struggle and dirty fighting continued throughout and Sasaki became motivated enough to wrestle with his shirt off. He used Yukinori Matsui as a shield at one point but Fujita cut him off on top of the turnbuckles. From there Fujita hit an Avalanche Tombstone for a nearfall. He hit another Tombstone as a counter to La Mistica for another two count. Fujita had to do the Somato and then the “Sayonara” version of the Tombstone to finally put Sasaki down for the three count.

Fujita called his victory over Sasaki a miracle. It is a win he will talk about for the rest of his life. He will carry the achievement with him until his retirement, which will happened somewhere between 4 to 50 years from now. Sasaki complained about Fujita ruining the show. Sasaki was supposed to beat him but he was too strong. Sasaki promised to get stronger and win in the rematch. Fujita then cut him off and said they will never wrestle each other again. Sasaki accepted that and asked to be a teacher in the Fujita Pro Wrestling☆School instead. He then told the fans today was supposed to be Sasaki beating Fujita on the road to winning the Universal Title from Yuki Ueno and then he couldn’t be called a thief anymore. At least the audience had more fun here than at the Olympics today so that cheered him up a little.

Mad Paulie got some spotlight by winning his 5th Anniversary match. He was asked to comment backstage and simply grunted “Arigatou!”

Match #4 was a double reunion of sorts. Soma Takao and Shigehiro Irie were both in the Team Dream Futures stable. Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani used to team together as Gran MilliMeters in DNA. Shimatani took the fall against his former partner but declared today is the beginning of Chapter 3 of his life as a freelancer. Sasaki asked what happened to Chapter 2 and Nobu told him it already came and went.

Tetsuya Endo had wanted to face Leo Isaka for a while now but DDT were never able to put it together. Endo had to take things into his own hands and book the match at a DAMNATION show like this one. Isaka does the Shooting Star Press because he first saw Endo do the move. He got the chance to use it here but Endo dodged it and later hit his version to win. When Sasaki found out Isaka is like a 22 year old version of Endo, he thought about bringing him in as a replacement. He’ll fire Endo when he turns 30 next month and bring in Isaka to be the new Endo.

There were plenty of antics when Hiroshi Yamato fought Kikutaro. A lot of them had Matsui involuntarily involved. During a mix up, Kikutaro tried pinning Matsui with a Small Package. When nothing happened, Yamato rolled Kikutaro over with a School Boy to get the win.

The risk of darkness surrounding the world has been averted for now. At least it is here, I mean. Choun-Shiryu defeated Darkunesu K with the aid of a cone bar. The evil version of Keigo Nakamura was a bit of a nuisance but nothing that Shiryu couldn’t handle in the end.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021 TOUR IN SHINJUKU”, 15/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – No DQ, No Submission Rules: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Shinya Aoki (I/c)

A lot of time was spent by Chris Brookes thinking up the stipulation for the double title match against Shinya Aoki. He decided on No DQs and also No Submission rules. Moves that are normally illegal are allowed but almost all kinds of submission holds will be banned. The only kinds that can be used are holds the referee will deem too dangerous to use in normal matches. Aoki complained about the rules but Brookes explained that he also is at a disadvantage because he cannot use the Octopus Hold. Therefore they will be on equal footing. Aoki thinks the rules will create the worst wrestling match of the century. Brookes disagrees. His felt his title defence against Saki Akai brought new aspects to her wrestling game. So from now on he is using his DDT Extreme Title matches to show new sides of his opponents that no one has ever seen before. Aoki had no choice but to accept the stipulation. He had to be reminded that his Choke Holds won’t be allowed either.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL. 4”, 26/07/2021

5. MONDAY NIGHT WAR: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Minoru Fujita

There will be a special guest on the show in the form of Darkunesu K. This being is a character Keigo Nakamura came up with during the Lords Mobile promotional campaign DDT was a part of recently. Nakamura needs to do a lot of dark activities during the day in order to summon Darkunesu K from within himself.

I’m hoping for a big showing from Leo Isaka against Tetsuya Endo here.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 1”, 30/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Danshoku Dieno Produce Match – Kaidan Shin Numabukuro Death Match ~Showa, Heisei, Reiwa Are Also A Classic!~: X Vs X
2. Saki Akai Produce Match: Kazusada Higuchi’s Relative, Yukio Sakaguchi’s Relative & Saki Akai’s Relative Vs Kazuki Hirata’s Relative, Yuki Iino’s Relative & Keigo Nakamura’s Relative
3. HARASHIMA Produce Match: X Vs X

It’s all relatives for one of the matches on the first day of Beer Garden. It is Saki Akai’s idea to get some “enchanted blood” wrestling in her segment.

Hisaya Imabayashi gets to tell his annual ghost story. Where does he keep getting them?

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 2”, 31/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shunma Katsumata Produce – Hardcore 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Yuki Ueno Vs Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO
2. Tetsuya Endo Produce Match: Tetsuya Endo & Hiroshi Yamato Vs Seiya Morohashi & X
3. Makoto Oishi Produce Match ~ Our Youth: Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Hideki Okatani Vs MEN’S Teioh, Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi

I think this is the first time Jun Akiyama and MEN’S Teioh will be in the same match together. Makoto Oishi has gone all out with this booking with Shiori Asahi included to make it a more complete Men’s Club reunion.

Seiya Morohashi? Boy it’s been years since he was last in DDT. I mean yeah there was an appearance on a Masahiro Takanashi booked show in 2019 but other than that his last DDT match was in 2016.

Of course Shunma Katsumata’s idea for his slot is to put all of The 37KAMIINA into a hardcore match.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 3”, 01/08/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Rock & Roll Death Match: Antonio Honda Vs X
2. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: X, X & X Vs X, X & X

Can’t leave out Antonio Honda from the Rock & Roll Death Match. Unless he gets hurt, that is.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021”, 15/08/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kininashi Wanaru ~The Universe In My Head~ Match: X Vs X

There will be an Infomercial match promoting a new show on WOWOW called Kininashi Wanaru ~The Universe In My Head~. The series explores different forms of creativity and one of the episodes will focus on DDT. The two hosts Noritake Kinsahi and Cunning Takeyama will be special guests at Korakuen Hall to witness what DDT has cooked up for them.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Konosuke Takeshita says everything is in order for him to become the KO-D Openweight Champion again. His King Of DDT victory showed he now has the physical ability, mental attributes, luck and momentum to be the top wrestler in DDT. He has lost two singles matches to Akiyama that both took place last winter. It was up to Takeshita to fix his own problems and it began with his appearances in AEW back in April. As a result of his own actions over the last three months, Takeshita is now confident to fight Akiyama to see who is best. Even though Akiyama is well accepted into the DDT family at this point, Takeshita is still going to treat him as the enemy.

As if having Atsushi Onita isn’t enough to keep the hardcore flavour around, Jun Kasai will be on the show too. Katsumata and Brookes have a little bit of tag history with him. MAO fought him in a Hardcore match a few years ago too.

6. Leo Isaka defeated Daiki Shimomura with an Inverted Hurricanrana (12:14).
7. Union MAX Title: Fuminori Abe (c) defeated Brahman Kei (w/ Brahman Shu) with an Onryo Clutch (12:13).
*V4 for Fuminori Abe.

The Brahman Brothers disinfected the ring during their entrance because they are still concerned over getting infected with the Coronavirus. Brahman Kei tried to do the twin magic spot with both Brahman Shu and Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi at ringside. Fuminori Abe didn’t fall for it but was still distracted long enough for Kei to attack him from behind. Takuya Nomura helped Abe at certain moments to even out the odds. Shu then took out his secret weapon, an Ultimo Dragon mask! He wore it and tried to do Ultimo Dragon moves until Abe blocked the Asai DDT. Abe then used the Irabu Punch to stun The Brahmans into hitting each other. Shy threw powder in Abe’s face in a moment of desperation and Kei used La Magistral Cradle for a nearfall. Abe regained his senses and pinned Kei with the Onryo Clutch to defend the Union MAX Title.

After the match, Takumi Tsukamoto challenged Abe to be his next challenger. However, Masato Kamino also came out asking for a title shot because he pinned Takato Nakano today. Abe called that a weak reason and suggested a No. 1 Contender match between Tsukamoto and Kamino. He would rather choose the challenger that way than defend the title against both in a 3 Way.

Daiki Shimomura and Leo Isaka both gestured they want a rematch with each other.

Daichi Kazato wants to bring the IRON FIST TAG Titles back to BASARA. He and Hiroshi challenged Speed Of Sounds to a title match at the next Shin-Kiba 1st RING show.


DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS” Results

August 29, 2020

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS”, 29/08/2020
Shinjuku FACE
??? Fans – Withheld

1. Reiwa’s Summer Battle!: Chikara defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Saber Chop (10:12).
2. 3 Way Match: El Lindaman defeated Antonio Honda and Intelligence Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4 when Lindaman pinned Honda with the German Suplex (14:10).
3. Soma Takao & T-Hawk defeated Mineo Fujita & Leo Isaka when Takaon pinned Isaka after an Accidental Dropkick from Fujita (11:58).
4. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Naya when Paulie pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash (12:54).
5. Tetsuya Endo Debut 8th Anniversary Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Shooting Star Press (15:04).
6. Special Single Match: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Tsutomu Oosugi with La Mistica Cross Facelock (20:40).

The main event lost control when Tsutomu Oosugi accidentally knocked down Yukinori Matsui. After that happened, Daisuke Sasaki pulled Oosugi into the Cross Facelock and made him tap out with no referee there to see it. Matsui was revived in time to see Oosugi roll himself on top of Sasaki almost pinning him for the three count. Sasaki went for La Mistica Cross Facelock and eventually got it in. Oosugi reached for the ropes but gave up when Sasaki re-positioned themselves back to the middle of the ring.

After the match, Sasaki did something that is rare for him. He thanked his opponent. He chose Oosugi to be his opponent today because Oosugi showed him how fun pro wrestling is. There’s probably other reasons but Sasaki can’t remember them. He told Oosugi he respects him. Oosugi asked if Sasaki kicks every person he admires in the crotch? He thinks Sasaki’s life has gotten a lot worse, more than he ever realised in their previous tag matches. However, Sasaki showed him his true colours in today’s singles match. Oosugi believes wrestling is all inclusive and he will always remember the Sasaki he knew from their days in Mexico. Sasaki said they should go back to Mexico and have a match there.

Tetsuya Endo has been warned before by Sasaki not to get too close to Ryuichi Sekine. However Endo respects Sekine so much that he got him to be his opponent for his 8th anniversary match. Although Endo admitted afterwards that Sekine was his third choice. Still, he thinks they had a really good match.

The return of Shuji Ishikawa was meant to be a good time. It looked that way when he and Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Naya. But after the match Ishikawa told Paulie he only came here to wrestle, not to sing. This was not the time for karaoke. He would only sing when he thinks the time is right. Ishikawa apologised for the disappointing news.

The master of unintentional groin attacks Mineo Fujita showcased his abilities. Soma Takao in particular was scared to fight him and backed off whenever he felt his crotch was in danger. T-Hawk also refused to tag in when Fujita was in the ring. Fujita eventually found ways to do his thing, falling headbutt first onto Takao’s groin then giving T-Hawk a Facecrusher onto the same spot. Fujita’s cursed ability was his team’s downfall because he accidentally Dropkicked Leo Isaka in the dick. Takao pinned Isaka to save everyone’s manhoods from further harm.

When the 3 Way Match began, Antonio Honda got upset over being left out. He was about to tell a Gongitsune joke when El Lindaman and Intelligence Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4 both attacked him. Lindaman (25) and Passion Mask (39) then began arguing over their ages. It led to everyone sitting down in the middle of the ring and refusing to be the first to move. Honda yelled at everyone to stand back up and start Chopping each other. The three wrestlers eventually had their tights accidentally pulled down and they all fought in their underwear. Honda hit the Diving Fist Drop 2020 ~Homecoming~ on Passion Mask but Lindaman then gave him a German Suplex to steal the win.

Nobuhiro Shimatani and Chikara kept yelling their names at each other inbetween moves. They mostly Chopped each other a lot.

All of DAMNATION got in the ring at the end of the show. Ishikawa explained to Sasaki his self-ban on singing karaoke. Sasaki called him stupid and asked what does Ishikawa want to do? Ishikawa wants to sing! He got to sing while Takao, Endo and Paulie danced around him. When they finished, Sasaki announced “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL.2” will happen on 11th December!

Sasaki had a message to give at the start of the show. It is something everyone is thinking. “Fuck Corona!” Everyone applauded.

After some messaging back and forth, Atsushi Onita and NOSAWA Rongai agreed to make the main event a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match. This is going to be odd because at one point they promised no crowd brawling on the show because the Coronavirus limitations wouldn’t let them do it. The entire point of a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match is wrestlers charging through the crowd down to the ring when the match begins!
