*V3 for Daisuke Sasaki.
6. Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yasu Urano when Ishii pinned Urano with the Kneel Kick (24:59).

Keisuke Ishii celebrated a successful box office in his family’s hometown of Tokorozawa. In the main event Ishii teamed with Shigehiro Irie fresh off of Irie’s latest excursion to America. They were victorious over Konosuke Takeshita & Yasu Urano after the Beast Bomber followed by the Kneel Kick kept Urano down for the count. Ishii was happy with how the match turned out and he thanked the other three for getting involved. Ishii also asked Irie to team with him again because they make for a strong pairing. Irie told Ishii that they will be opponents on 23rd November for the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match at Korakuen Hall. Irie will have to fight him because he wants to be a champion.

Diego failed to win the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title from Daisuke Sasaki. The two butted heads after the match and said some words in the heat of the moment after the match. Diego can’t remember what was said because he took so much damage during the match. In his post-match interview, Sasaki recalled the first time he met Diego. He was wrestling in Bolivia and came across this strange person who was able to speak to him in Japanese. He kept telling him he really wanted to go to Japan and wrestle there. Their paths would cross again a few times until Diego, then known as Guanchulo, finally made his way to Japan to wrestle for DDT. Sasaki’s next title defence is against Shinichiro Tominaga in Ganbare☆Wrestling. However, Sasaki wants to defend the belt against TAKA Michinoku somewhere else instead.

Today was KUDO’s first match back after the concussion from last month. It was also Kota Umeda’s first DDT match since September 2016. Shuten-dōji held a toast for the successful returns of them both. KUDO said that at last all four “sake drinks” are in stock again. Now it is time to go get some championships!

NωA invited Keisuke Ishii’s father to become the newest member of their group. He thanked them for the offer but turned them down because he wants to stay in Tokorozawa with his family.

Everybody entering the Fresh Ariyama Greengrocer Cup Rumble came equipped with a different vegetable provided by the match sponsor. Each wrestler had to take a bite out of their vegetable when they entered the ring and tell the audience how delicious it tastes. Tetsuya Endo didn’t do it so Mad Paulie had to stuff an onion into his mouth to prevent him from being disqualified. Paulie’s prize for winning the match was a bunch of matsutake mushrooms. Endo had to stop him from immediately eating all of it.

Makoto Oishi, Sanshiro Takagi and Toru Owashi met in the ring at the start of the show to promote the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match on 23rd November. Takagi brought up the mystery captain of the YaroZ team and accidentally let slip that it is Shiro Koshinaka. He and Owashi quickly fled the ring when he realised what he did.

Shinjuku FACE
386 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. The Most Scary Thing Is The Enemy Monster Or Maybe…: Shunma Katsumata, Diego & Rekka defeated Kazuki Hirata, Yukio Sakaguchi & Makoto Oishi when Diego pinned Hirata with the VHS (7:19).
2. Non-Halloween Generation And Halloween Generation Halloween War: Keisuke Ishii defeated Yuki Ueno with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (5:38).

5. The Secret Weapon Finally Appears In BOYZ With Fullness!: Akito & Soma Takao defeated HARASHIMA & Super Higuchi Ikemen when Takao pinned Higuchi with La Magistral Cradle (12:09).

The BOYZ celebrated Halloween by transforming themselves into monsters for their matches. The BOYZ president Johnny Etajima pulled a lever to determine what monster the BOYZ would turn into before they made their entrances.

In the main event, Akito & Soma Takao were turned into “Wicked People” wearing monk clothing and carrying scythes. Takao kind of misread the description and acted more grumpy than wicked. HARASHIMA was a homicidal clown scaring everybody with his screams. Super Higuchi Ikemen was Kazusada Higuchi dressed as Elvis Presley. However, Higuchi struggled to fit in with the BOYZ and lost the match. He cried afterwards and asked Etajima if he was truly an ikemen. Etajima told him he worked 1.5 times harder than anyone else today but that what it means to be an ikemen. He struggled to explain why until music played and all of the BOYZ started dancing. Etajima then told Higuchi to join in. Higuchu saud he truly wants to be an ikemen from the bottom of his heart and he will do his best to become one.

Mad Paulie was the only DAMNATION wrestler to play dress up. It was already advertised that he would become Pumpkin Paulie so he had to go through with it. Masahiro Takanashi was Harry Potter and he briefly held back DAMNATION with magic spells. MAO & Mizuki Watase were both pirates.

For the remaining matches: Konosuke Takeshita was Dracula, Nobuhiro Shimatani was Where’s Wally/Waldo, Keisuke Ishii was No-Face from Spirited Away, Yuki Ueno was Pierrot, Rekka was a jiangshi hopping vampire, Shunma Katsumata & Diego were prisoners and everybody on Yukio Sakaguchi’s team were zombies.

7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) and Ken Ohka (I/c) when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (21:46).
*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.

1. Round System Drinking & Driving Match: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Tricycle Assisted Cross Facelock (R9 0:21).
2. Bull Rope Tag Match: Dave Crist & Shigehiro Irie defeated Yuko Miyamoto & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Crist pinned Shimatani with the Magdaline (11:27).
3. Lumberjack Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi ended in a Double Countout (6:44).
3a. Rematch: Tetsuya Endo & Man Man Kai Kind defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Endo pinned Shimatani with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (4:37).
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie defeated Antonio Honda, Rocky Kawamura & Tanomusaku Toba when Sasaki submitted Honda with La Mistica Cross Facelock (19:13).

DAMNATION had their turn for drinking and debauchery at Beer Garden today. In the main event Daisuke Sasaki led his team to beat the boxing (?) trio of Antonio Honda, Rocky Kawamura & Tanomusaku Toba. Sasaki introduced Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie as his pets “Adrian” & “Paulie”. This confused Kawamura. Those two aren’t the Adrian and Paulie he knows of so he attacked them. But DAMNATION were too strong and Sasaki got the win in the end. Afterwards Sasaki explained to Kawamura that there are many Adrians and Paulies in the would and he isn’t Rocky! Sasaki closed out the show by saying Tetsuya Endo will win the KO-D Openweight Title, Ishikawa will stay as the Triple Crown Champion and he himself will keep the DDT Extreme Title. As for Paulie, maybe he will go fight in RIZIN.

A couple of “American” wrestlers were brought in to be lumberjacks for the Endo Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi match. Man Man Kai Kind and Stone Cold Sekine Ryuichin got too invested in their roles and kept both Endo and Hiroshi out of the ring long enough to get both of them counted out. Man Man Kai Kind got on the microphone and told Hiroshi he will listen to him no more! Suddenly Nobuhiro Shimatani came in still wearing his bra and bounded in rope from his earlier match. He finally wants to settle his grudge with Endo now! The bell rang and it was now an impromptu tag match between Endo & Kind against Hiroshi & Shimatani. Sekine Ryuichin returned and gave Hiroshi the Stone Cold Stunnger. Endo pinned Shimatani to win then stripped him of his bra afterwards.

Everyone in the Bull Rope match wore rope bondage gear so the bull ropes could be attached to the wrestlers. I guess no dog collars were available. Shigehiro Irie & Dave Crist were victorious and Irie said they were part of one of the best teams in the world, OI4K!

The Drinking & Driving Match sounded funny on paper, right? Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi would fight each other with bats in 30 second rounds while riding small tricycles and they would get to drink beer in between every round. What could go wrong? Well the tricycles wheels had too much grip on the ring canvas and the wrestlers were getting too drunk to function properly so nothing happened in the early rounds. By the 5th round they both decided to get off the tricycles and finally start fighting. At one point Sasaki was put in the Tree Of Woe against the corner. Takanashi then lined up a tricycle and kicked across the ring into Sasaki. In the 9th round Sasaki on his tricycle somehow put Takanashi in the Cross Facelock and made him submit.

9. Osaka Wrestling School Vs Kishiwada Gurentai – Challenge to Yukinobu ~ Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie defeated “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo when Takeshita pinned Buffalo with the Cross-Arm German Suplex (25:22).

DDT’s tribute to Osaka wrestling was headlined by their two top wrestlers from the region taking on two legendary figures. When Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie got a match against Magnitude Kishiwada and Buffalo they wanted them in their original Osaka Pro forms, “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo. They got their wish and their opponents made it clear they weren’t going to play nice. MA-G-MA & Buffalo attacked the DDT team the moment the bell rang. MA-G-MA put Takeshita through a table outside the ring with a Diving Body Press. However the tables turned when MA-G-MA accidentally Clotheslined Buffalo. Irie flattened Buffalo with a Running Cannonball into the corner. MA-G-MA did what he could to save Buffalo but soon ran out of chances. Takeshita then hit the Cross-Arm German Suplex to seal the victory.

Before the Osaka team left, MA-G-MA appealed to Takeshita for a singles match some day down the line. Takeshita and Irie showed admiration for their opponents and said it is now their own era of pro wrestling. When Takeshita was finished, Naomi Yoshimura came down to the ring to grab his attention. He said Takeshita forgot about someone. Yoshimura then went back to the entrance and brought out Takeshita’s mother, Keiko Takeshita! Yoshimura said he was stealing Keiko so her son won’t be able to eat any meals when he comes home. Keiko didn’t seem to mind because she was busy waving to the audience as they were chanting her name. Takeshita was annoyed but he can still protect his KO-D Openweight Title so please continue to support him. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi closed out the show by singing “A Woman Born Is Osaka”.

Big men doing big moves was the theme of the other main event. Kazusada Higuchi stepped up to Shuji Ishikawa and wasn’t intimidated by the Triple Crown Champion. Back Drops, Lariats and even the Doctor Bomb could not win the match for Higuchi. Instead Ishikawa cut him off with a Knee Lift, a Sliding D, the Fire Thunder and then the Splash Mountain to finish it.

Dick Togo and Mad Paulie continued to fight each other at the end of the Wrestling Hunters Vs DAMNATION match. The rest of DAMNATION had to pull Paulie away from Togo. Save that energy for the Paulie Joshi, buddy.

Antonio Honda had the opportunity to join in with Kikutaro and Kuishinbo Kamen’s famous wrestling exchanges but was struck with anxiety. He was up all of last night thinking of “Gon, The Little Fox” as usual. This annoyed his opponents so they decided to fight Honda two on one with some nonsense along the way. Kikutaro tired himself out and Honda easily submitted him with a Crab Hold to win. Honda thanked both of his opponents for the match. Kikutaro said he would like to do it again whenever the cost of his flights from and to Nevada are cheap.

In a moment of true villainy, Super Sasadango Machine rummaged through Yuni’s carry case before their trios match. Inside he found the kid’s fidget spinner and he stole it! Sasadango taunted Yuni by playing with the spinner in the ring then challenged him to take it back with his strength. To make it worse, Sasadango then stuffed the spinner down the front of Danshoku Dino’s tights. Yuni got help from Makoto Oishi and Jun Kasai to beat Dino, Sasadango & Atsushi Maruyama. Oishi gave Sasadango a Stunner, Kasai then hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Yuni got the pin with the Sky Twister Press from the 2nd turnbuckle. After the match Kasai reached into Dino’s tights, pulled out the spinner and gave it back to Yuni.

There was a problem about the Battle Royal that needed to be solved. The original plan was for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Championship to be defended in the match but the current champion Maho Kurone was nowhere to be found. Yukinori Matsui told Amon Tsurumi that there needed to be a prize to motivate the contestants. Tsurumi thought about it and came up with an idea. He took off his afro and handed it over to Matsui. You see, the afro represents the power held by the DDT General Manager. Tsurumi announced that the winner will become the GM for one day. This will allow the winner to make any match or personal request that they desire. Saki Akai won the Battle Royal without eliminating anybody. She was tied up into a ball by Hirata Collection A.T. and left alone afterwards. Hirata and Joey Ryan were the last wrestlers left fighting and they eliminated each other so Akai was declared the winner. After Tsurumi freed her, he gave her the afro and asked her not to throw it away because she will have to wear it on the day she becomes the GM.

Shunma Katsumata & MAO recorded a message for the DDT fans while they were away competing in the NOAH Jr. Tag League. Unfortunately the audio was indecipherable because there was a strong wind while they were recording outdoors.

Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Maho Kurone defeated Joey Ryan (c) with a School Boy (5:40 pm).
*Maho Kurone becomes the 1,260th(?) champion.
1. Match To Verify If Hira-Colle is Hirata Or Hirata: Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi defeated Hirata Collection A.T. & Gorgeous Matsuno when Owashi pinned Hirata with La Magistral Cradle (7:33).
2. KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Shigehiro Irie & Rekka when KUDO pinned Rekka with the Diving Double Knee Drop (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan when Akito submitted Ryan with the Scorpion Lock (11:00).
4. HARASHIMA & Mizuki Watase defeated Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (11:38).
5. Crazy Gold Wolf Vs Gon, The Little Fox: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Antonio Honda with the Right Knee Of God (7:56).
6. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Paulie pinned Iwasaki with the Reverse Splash (11:14).
7. ‘Hama Special Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii & Mike Bailey defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Diego when Bailey pinned Diego with the Ultima Weapon (16:50).

Keisuke Ishii continues to build momentum against Konosuke Takeshita and he’s doing it without the need for the Final Cut yet. Ishii gave Takeshita the Double Arm DDT on the floor outside the ring while Mike Bailey pinned Diego with the Ultima Weapon. Afterwards Ishii described Takeshita as a wonderful champion. But Ishii needs the KO-D Openweight Title to give the second half of his 2017 meaning.

Tetsua Endo mocked Kazusada Higuchi’s body after DAMNATION won their tag match. Endo said Higuchi has the body of a former sumo wrestler and he should be more like Mad Paulie if he wants to be strong. Paulie eats ramen three times a day to get his stoic body. Endo then announced on 23rd July he will help Paulie establish the Paulie Joshi club. It’s like Sumo Joshi clubs where women love sumo but this one is for women who love Paulie. It is Endo’s dream to buy an uninhabited island for Paulie and the Paulie Joshi to live in paradise. He may even use his King Of DDT winnings to pay for it.

Yukio Sakaguchi did everything he could to physically stop Antonio Honda from reciting “Gon, The Little Fox”. Every time Honda began to tell the tale, Sakaguchi kicked him. Honda agreed he would tell a different story instead like Snow White but it was obvious he was still trying to do “Gon, The Little Fox”. Sakaguchi ended up winning the match. He said it was fun, it’s just that he is tired of Honda telling the same story over and over. He already told it three times today!

Mizuki Watase replaced Soma Takao in Match #4. Takao had to be taken off the show when he became ill with cellulitis. HARASHIMA was pleased with the results as he and Watase beat Danshoku Dino & Makoto Oishi. But with Sumo Hall on the horizon HARASHIMA is looking into what he can do on the show. He hasn’t given up on the possibility that he can still be in the main event somehow. He has two choices ahead of him. Do something for himself or do something for DDT. He has an idea to something for himself.

Joey Ryan went into the 3 Way Match without the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title because he lost it to Maho Kurone earlier in the show (more on that later). Akito won the match by submitting Joey but now had no prize to claim. Daisuke Sasaki gave Akito his DDT Extreme Title belt and left the ring, like he did the last time Akito won a match over him. Akito would have kept the belt but Nobuhiro Shimatani took it off him and ran backstage to give it back to Sasaki. Akito is now left wondering how the hell do championships work in this company? Once he figures it out, he’s hoping to enter Sumo Hall with a title over his shoulder.

The 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match was turned into a normal tag team bout when Gorgeous Matsuno asked to team with Hirata Collection A.T. Matsuno hadn’t wrestled in DDT since “JUDGEMENT 2017” in March and he grew tired of waiting for his next booking. Everyone wanted to know Hirata’s true identity. And I mean everyone because they all entered the ring to gang up and stomp on Hirata. After the match, Sanshiro Takagi came to a conclusion. Hirata Collection A.T. is… not Kazuki Hirata! Why? Because Hirata Collection A.T. cannot wrestle to save his life. Matsuno didn’t care about this nonsense. He wanted to know when DDT will book him again. Takagi asked the audience if they wanted to see Matsuno again. They cheered. Takagi then announced that at Korakuen Hall on 23rd July, Hirata Collection A.T. will have to win his match or else he will be deported! Also Matsuno won’t be on the show. Danshoku Dino convinced Takagi to change his mind and add Matsuno to Hirata’s match. Now if Hirata’s team loses then both Hirata and Matsuno will be deported out of Japan!

Before the first match began, Joey Ryan wanted to send a message to Daisuke Sasaki so he went to the ring and had Antonio Honda translate for him. Joey mentioned he was attacked by a zombie girl at Tokyo Joshi Pro earlier in the day but this is a DDT show so he isn’t worried about bumping into her again. As he was saying this, Maho Kurone snuck into the ring with a severed arm and a referee. She tapped Joey’s shoulder with the arm to get his attention. When Joey turned around he tried to defend himself by grabbing the severed arm and making it grab his crotch. However Kurone let go of the arm and pinned Joey with a School Boy to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title! Joey ran off with the severed hand still grabbing his crotch while Honda finished up the opening call.

Takeshita opened the show by promoting the upcoming “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2017” but he was interrupted by Naomi Yoshimura as usual. Yoshimura claimed he had stolen Takaeshita’s power blocks and this time he got the correct ones. He brought them out and to Takeshita’s surprise they really were his blocks. Amon Tsurumi asked Yoshimura when he will finally use his Right To Challenge Contract to cash for the KO-D Title shot. Yoshimura said he wants to do it in a venue that can fill 10,000 people where he can humiliate Takeshita the most, so Sumo Hall on 20th August. Tsurumi had some bad news for Yoshimura. The Right To Challenge contract will expire after the Beer Garden series finale on 5th August. That’s before Sumo Hall! Yoshimura was taken aback but then acted like he knew that all along. He’ll cash in on 3rd August or 5th August or whatever date Tsurumi said it expires. Yoshimura was in such a hurry to leave ringside that he left behind Takeshita’s power blocks for Takeshita to take back.

7. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Akito submitted Endo with the Perfect Figure Four Leg Lock (16:46).

Akito sent a message loud and clear to his King Of DDT opponent Tetsuya Endo by making him submit to the Perfect Figure Four. The victory came when Akito avoided the Shooting Star Press. Afterwards he grabbed Endo in the Ankle Lock, shifted it into a Knee Crusher and then applied the Perfect Figure Four. Akito is acting humble after the result though. He thinks he is inferior to the other King Of DDT semi-finalists and has the least chance out of the four to win the tournament. But it seems that people like him can stand out in Sumo Hall. Perhaps an ALL OUT main event at Sumo Hall this August can be on the cards after all. Akito asked Konosuke Takeshita not to hate him if he becomes the next KO-D Openweight Champion because he wants to return to Matsuyama with the belt around his waist!

Hey, guess what? Naomi Yoshimura told everyone another tale of hardship in his life that is totally Takeshita’s fault. First his family fell apart, next his social life vanished and then his grandmother was arrested for shoplifting. Yoshimura was all alone. So to cheer himself up he went to his favourite restaurant to eat his favourite southern chicken barbecue meal. The food isn’t actually good but it always seemed to make him work harder when he ate it. But when he arrived he saw the restaurant had closed down. He asked the neighboring businesses what had happened and the answers made him angry. It turned out another high school student ate an oyster at the restaurant and it gave him food poisoning afterwards. The police had to close down the restaurant in order to investigate the incident. Who was the ill student? Konosuke Takeshita! Now Yoshimura can’t get his favourite southern chicken barbecue because Takeshita had to go get food poisoning from a fucking oyster! Yoshimura will use his Right To Challenge to ruin Takeshita’s life when the time is right.

The Ultima Weapon is Mike Bailey’s Shooting Star Double Knee Drop. What is it with Canadians and Final Fantasy in this company?

All hell broke loose after the Kazusada Higuchi Vs Yukio Sakaguchi match. Higuchi won the match by countering a Triangle Choke into a pinning Power Bomb. It turned out Sakaguchi was pinned because he refused to let go of the choke and kept squeezing until Higuchi fainted. When Higuchi was revived by Yukinori Matsui, Higuchi attacked Sakaguchi thinking the match was still going on. Matsui had to pull the two apart and told Higuchi he won. Both Higuchi and Sakaguchi still tried to start fighting again and had to be held back from each other. Backstage Higuchi said neither man won today. Sakaguchi was pinned but Higuchi lost consciousness. To him that is a loss. He promises next time he will absolutely beat Sakaguchi.

NωA are on shaky ground after losing to Shuten-dōji. The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions are hoping to beat them in their upcoming title match so the unit can go into its first anniversary with the belts around their waists.

Mad Paulie dominated the 3 Way Match. He couldn’t be stopped even when his opponents Makoto Oishi and Diego formed a brief alliance against him. Paulie got Diego out of the ring, hit Oishi with a Lariat and pinned him with the Reverse Splash. Now Paulie has a Right To Challenge Contract in his possession.
