6. DDT Extreme Title – Yogi Yogi Death Match: Akito defeated Antonio Honda (c) with the Scorpion Lock (13:02).
*Antonio Honda fails in V1. Akito becomes the 45th DDT Extreme Champion!
7. Yukio Sakaguchi, HARASHIMA & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb (13:06).

DAMNATION used Mad Paulie’s collar and leash to choke Yukio Sakaguchi with. However Sakaguchi was able to render Daisuke Sasaki useless with a Sleeper Hold, hit Paulie with the God’s Right Knee and got rid of Tetsuya Endo with an Apron PK outside the ring. HARASHIMA kept a look out while Kazusada Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb. Sakaguchi told Endo he wants to kill him right now but he’d rather wait until their match at Matsuyama. Endo feels the same way. He said the KO-D Openweight Title means everything to him because he won it from Sasaki.

The DDT Extreme Title match featured a stipulation that starts off peacefully but descends into mayhem if something goes wrong. Antonio Honda and Akito wrestled each other while bystanders Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Konaka = Pale One would meditate and do yoga next to them. The slightest touch to either Hiroshi or Konaka would send them into a rage and result in a sudden attack before they returned to meditating. The provoked attacks would continue until Hiroshi and Konaka touched each other, leading to a fight between themselves. When this happened Honda had enough space in the ring to hit the Diving Fist Drop to Akito. He went for the pin but Hiroshi broke it with the Yoga Ye to Honda! Akito put Honda in the Scorpion Deathlock and made Honda tap to win the Extreme Title. The trainee at ringside, Nakamura, accidentally made contact with Hiroshi and Konaka after the match. He suffered the consequences.

Akito thanked Honda for the match and was ecstatic to become the Extreme Champion again after five years. Asuka congratulated Akito and asked for a title match. She is starving for a championship ever since she lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hisaya Imabayashi loved the idea and wants the match to happen at Ota Ward on 15th July. However Akito struggled to accept it and even argued with Imabayashi over the idea. He eventually gave in and will put the belt on the line against Asuka at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”.

Soma Takao already had Kazuki Hirata beaten with the Gin And Tonic. He decided to add insult to injury by pinning Hirata with his own finisher, the Egoist Driver!

The returning Shunma Katsumata took the fall in Match #4. Konosuke Takaeshita said he’s been annoyed by how much Katsumata’s career had stalled this year because of his injuries. He asked him to do his best to start again from scratch. Katsumata promised to do that and also to do his best for ALL OUT’s upcoming series with the Sendai Girls.

It was announced that Chris Brookes will get a KO-D Title shot at the 21st July Korakuen Hall show.

Higuchi found out he will be facing Yukio Naya on 30th June. When they met in the ring for the announcement Naya shoved Higuchi. Naya doesn’t care about his bloodline. He wants to show everyone his power under his own terms.

6. Road To WRESTLE MATUSYAMANIA! Special Handicap Match: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto when Sasaki submitted Hirata with La Mistica Cross Facelock (11:46).
7. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Soma Takao with the Fable (21:11).

When it comes to tournaments, the last six months have been a dominant one for Konosuke Takeshita. He now adds the King Of DDT to his 2019 collection along with the D-Ou Grand Prix and New Year’s Shuffle Tag Tournament. In the final Takeshita defeated Soma Takao, ending DAMNATION’s three year iron grip on the competition. He kicked out of the Official Endless Waltz and also the Reverse Gory Special Bomb. The big reversal in fortune came when Takeshita countered a top rope Gin And Tonic into an Avalanche Canadian Destroyer. From there he hit a Lariat, a Zehi Knee Strike and then the Fable to win. With this victory Takeshita now has a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July. He doesn’t know who if he will face Tetsuya Endo or Yukio Sakaguchi for the title but either way there will a break in the new era. He will either have to fight the glamorous high flying of Endo or the killer aura of Sakaguchi. Either one will be an exciting path for him. In the end, Takeshita says he will be the one to choose this new era. The new era of Konosuke Takeshita will begin at Ota Ward Gymnasium on 15th July! For Takao his dream of main eventing Ota Ward is over. That is unless he can win the last remaining Right To Challenge Gauntlet…

The Canadian Destroyer being used as a counter for the Gin And Tonic was something that haunted Takao throughout the show. A big version from Takeshita ended his hopes of winning the final but in the semi-final HARASHIMA also hit the counter on Takao in the middle of the ring. However Takao had HARASHIMA scouted and he countered the Somato into the Official Endless Waltz for a nearfall. When the two got back up Takao did a High Kick and dropped HARASHIMA with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb for the win.

The earlier semi-final left both Takeshita and Kazusada Higuchi drawing blood from each other. Takeshita got a bloody nose from a Headbutt while Higuchi bled from the mouth after some late strikes. The match ended with a Lariat duel. Higuchi hit first but Takeshita hit harder and that gave him the win.

A 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match gave us a preview for next month’s KO-D Tag Team Title match. The outcome does not look so good for the challengers. Daisuke Sasaki had his hands full by dealing with both Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto but Donaruto’s lewd antics took the match in a different direction. For his big spot Donaruto stripped out of his gear and wore nothing but a gold thong underneath. Whatever he tried to do, the plan backfired and Hirata took the brunt of the attack instead of Sasaki. What little hope the team had left vanished when Donaruto missed the McFly Bomb and Sasaki trapped Hirata with La Mistica Cross Facelock to get the submission. Hirata apologised to Donaruto backstage for the poor teamwork but he noticed something when Donaruto spoke back to him. Donaruto’s voice wasn’t as low as it was before. Is he slowly turning back into Hirata’s old roommate from the Kobe dojo? Hirata remembers taking a picture with him pretending to be tag team champions back when they lived together. Maybe they can make that a reality on 2nd June after all.

The fifth match of the show was ready to begin when Keisuke Ishii suddenly came out. He lived up to his promise to cash in his Right To Challenge Guantlet. However to him it made no sense to get his title shot after Tetsuya Endo’s match when Endo would be too tired. That would make the winning the KO-D Title meaningless in his mind. So instead he was cashing in his title match now before the tag bout could begin! Despite the noble intentions, Ishii was unable to beat Endo. The champion kicked out of the Tiger Suplex and dodged the Kneel Kick. Ishii kicked out of the Torture Rack Bomb but was put away with the Shooting Star Press.

Endo got on the microphone to brag about his victory but he completely forgot that Yukio Sakaguchi was still at ringside waiting for their tag match to begin. From out of nowhere Sakaguchi ran in and hit Endo from behind with the God’s Right Knee. The tag match was officially declared to have begun while Sakaguchi had Endo locked in a Sleeper Hold. Mad Paulie tried to save his partner but Sakaguchi got rid of him with the God’s Right Knee. One more God’s Right Knee struck an exhausted Endo and Daisuke Kiso ruled he was unable to continue. I’m not even sure Mizuki Watase did anything of note, the win was all Sakaguchi’s.

Sanshiro Takagi was dared by the younger generation of wrestlers to put his Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line in a 5 Way Match. Before the match begun it was announced that the match would also be fought under Scramble Bunkhouse Hardcore rules. Everyone begun the match starting at a different part of Korakuen Hall but when the bell rang Takagi was immediately targeted by the other four. For the most part it felt like a Handicap Match. MAO broke plastic cases over Takagi’s head, Kota Umeda put him through a table and the two of them were aided by Naomi Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno for a Tower Of Doom Suplex spot to Takagi. Ueno then turned on the others by smashing a case over Yoshimura and attacking the rest with a chair. Ueno went for the Diving Body Press but Takagi used another plastic case to break Ueno’s fall then rolled him over for the three count. Takagi celebrated by hitting a Diving Press onto one more plastic case next to the stage. He said backstage that all of his opponents are stronger than him but they are also really bad friends so he saw Ueno’s betrayal coming.

Antonio Honda damaged his right hand and was unable to do the Gongitsune effectively. He tried doing it with his left hand but the move was still underpowered. His solution was to summon Toru Owashi, Makoto Oishi and Danshoku Dieno to form an Avengers Gongitsune for one big powerful attack! It was so powerful that Saki Akai could not block it. Unfortunately the attack missed its target and Super Sasadango Machine took the blow. Akito then made Sasadango submit to a Figure 4 Leg Lock. Akito says he is physically and mentally ready for the DDT Extreme Title match with Honda. He just has to wait for Honda to choose the match stipulation.

In the pre-show match Ricky Starks got to show off his vocal skills by singing “Livin’ la Vida Loca” while doing the Old School rope walk on Gota Ihashi. Mike Rollins took care of Nobuhrio Shimatani while Starks pinned Ihashi with a Spear.

Some more matches were announced for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. DDT’s newest signing Yukio Naya will take on Hideki Suzuki. Naya says he is close with Suzuki so he is glad to get a singles match with him. The other new match is Danshoku Dieno Vs Shinya Aoki!

Chris Brookes will be wrestling in DDT throughout June and July as part of DDT’s relationship with Fight Club: PRO. He was introduced in a video parodying the Time’s Up teasers New Japan have been showing on their events lately. This was done to make fun of Brookes being a popular guess for that reveal. Takagi said he met Brookes in New York and was surprised with what he saw in him. He thinks Brookes can do a better job of making DDT more exciting than the current young wrestlers in the company. If the younger Japanese wrestlers can’t do this job then Takagi has no problem with relying on the young foreigners instead.

Nishi Niigata City Hall (Kobari Aoyama Public Hall)

1. 3 Way Match: Masahiro Takanashi defeated Hiroshi Yamato and Kota Umeda when Takanashi pinned Umeda with a School Boy (6:39).

*V1 for Sendai Girls.
7. “Niigata Celebrities!” Super Sasadango Machine Local Triumph! Niigata Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Antonio Honda defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Super Sasadango Machine when Honda submitted Sasadango with the Manjigatame (12:51).

Antonio Honda admitted he was the unpopular wrestler today because he submitted Super Sasadango Machine in front of his hometown crowd. Sasadango unmasked himself during an Elbow Smash exchange with Honda. But when he went for the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock, Honda countered it into an Octopus Hold for the immediate tapout. Honda got a cold response from the audience afterwards so he gave Sasadango the microphone. That woke the crowd up and they cheered for Sasadango. He thanked the other wrestlers for wrestling him today, the DDT Extreme Champion Honda, “Mr. Ace” HARASHIMA and the “one man masterpiece” Konosuke Takeshita. Sasadango said he was suffering from burnout because of the Muscle show at Sumo Hall earlier this year. He wanted HARASHIMA to finish the speech but he and the others convinced Sasadango to do it himself.

The Sendai Girls still hold the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles after beating Saki Akai’s all star team of joshi wrestlers. Akai’s downfall came when she tried to do the Quetzalcoatl on Meiko Satomura. The move was cut off by Chihiro Hashimoto’s Lariat. DASH Chisako then hit a Diving Foot Stomp onto Akai. Hikaru Shida came to the rescue by blocking Satomura’s Avalanche Brainbuster but it was short lived. Hashimoto got rid of Asuka with the Albright German Suplex while Satomura pinned Akai with the Death Valley Bomb. Satomura gave Akai a disappointing look as Akai’s team left the ring.

ALL OUT then entered the ring to meet with the Sendai Girls. Yuki Iino faced off with Hashimoto until Takeshita told him to calm down. Takeshita said the two sides are currently 1-1 in their 6-Man Tag Title matches so it was time for a final challenge to settle this grudge. He announced Shunma Katsumata will be back at the end of May so the challenge should be a series of four singles matches as well as the deciding trios match for the championship. Satomura asked Takeshita if he was really up to the challenge then agreed to the stipulation. Iino told Hashimoto that he is the strongest primate and this time he will be throwing her around, not vice versa like last time.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s tunnel vision is making him vulnerable. His focus on trying to choke out Tetsuya Endo with the Sleeper Hold left him open to attacks from the other DAMNATION wrestlers a bunch of times. Sakaguchi did send Mad Paulie into unconsciousness with the move but when he got the move on Endo again, Daisuke Sasaki dropkicked him away. Sasaki & Endo were able to team together and pin MAO while Sakaguchi was out of the way.

Match #4 featured a special guest. The allegedly famous photographer Ki Tsurumi was invited to take high quality pictures in order to prove that pro wrestling is art. He was given permission to stand inside the ring so he could take pictures from whatever angle he desired. Yumehito Imanari got so into it he stripped down to his underwear to give Tsurumi something more provocative. Mizuki Watase & Yuki Ueno hated this because they wanted to take pictures of exciting wrestling. They argued until Makoto Oishi rolled Watase into the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to pin him. They all got together for a group photo after the match but Tsurumi saw Hiroshi Yamato across the room and chased after him for a sexy picture.

7. Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Makoto Oishi when Endo pinned Oishi with the Shooting Star Press (18:28).

Oh well it’s back to normal for Makoto Oishi. After yesterday’s success he was back losing to Tetsuya Endo today. The two confronted each other after the match. Oishi Headbutted Endo but Endo hit back with a Lariat forcing Oishi to roll out of the ring. With a week to go before their KO-D Openweight Title match Endo said he will go back to New York to replenish his condition and come back to Japan feeling reborn.

Times have changed but Man will continue to fight. That was the message behind the 5 Vs 5 Generation Elimination match. At the start of the show the two teams faced off in the ring but it turned into a brawl with Super Sasadango Machine getting unmasked in the process. For the match itself most of the eliminations were caused by Ring Outs including the finish where Masahiro Takanashi and Mizuki Watase knocked each other off the apron to the floor. Neither team wanted a draw so they agreed to a final match to decide the winner. Sasadango stepped up for his team because he suffered next to no damage in the match. Watase represented his side so he could get another chance to win. Sasadango hit the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock but couldn’t put Watase away. He got so worked up that he unmasked himself and became Muscle Sakai! Watase resisted Sakai’s trademark moves and pinned him with a School Boy to win the match for the younger generation!

The power of Yoshihiko was eventually used against Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata. It survived being punted by The Moonlight Express to give them a Double Hurricanrana but Asuka then threw Yoshihiko at Hirata and it gave him the Reincarnation out of instinct. Asuka then pinned Hirata with the Moonsault. After the sponsored prizes were given to the winners, Hirata attacked Yoshihiko along with its handler Danshoku Dieno. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hirata thought all was fine and dandy until Dieno attacked him and pinned him with the Danshoku Driver to become the new champion.

Mad Paulie is out of heat and has turned back to normal.

7. I Love It! Osaka Specialty Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Makoto Oishi when Endo submitted Oishi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (17:56).

Tetsuya Endo looks like he is getting what he wants from Makoto Oishi. That is an easy opponent he can beat all the time. Endo made Oishi submit to the Yurikamome Hold then taunted him for “wrestling with his head”. Endo says pro wrestling is the opposite, it is using everything except your head! He reminded everyone that there are two types of people in the world, losers and the KO-D Openweight Champion Tetsuya Endo!

Mad Paulie continues to require reading hentai novels in order to keep calm during matches.

Keisuke Okuda thanked Magnitude Kishiwada for taking part in his Marunage match. Since Okuda will be a freelancer starting in May, he would like to have another match with Kishiwada anywhere in Osaka.

The most horrible alliance in DDT has been created. Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto are now a tag team! They along with Toru Owashi were able to beat Sanshiro Takagi, Mizuki Watase & Yuni even when Yuni demanded the match to be held under Lucha Libre rules. Donaruto hit the McShake Bomb on Watase then Hirata hit the newly named GO! GO! Splash for the three count. After the match Hirata wanted to know something about Donaruto. Back when Hirata was living in Kobe, he shared a one room apartment with a weird person for 6 months. Was that person Donaruto before he transformed into what he is now? Hirata is happy to be reunited with that guy buy he hates being vulgar. Donaruto told Hirata that they shared a dream together in that dirty room. They can make that dream come true by winning the KO-D Tag Team Titles! Also Donaruto bought 100 tickets for the DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA” show in June that he can sell to people if they team together. He’s already sold 15 of them. Takagi promised the two will get their tag title match on 2nd June if they are able to sell the remaining tickets before then.

It was announced that the Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro match scheduled for Yukinori Matsui’s 25th Anniversary show in May has been cancelled because Kamen is injured. Antonio Honda offered to take Kamen’s place and be Kikutaro’s new opponent. For him that match is more valuable than money or health.

7. Yonago Specialties Come! Special! 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Makoto Oishi & Lowther defeated Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani when HARASHIMA pinned Shimatani with the Somato (15:19).

Tetsuya Endo and Makoto Oishi got into a fight after the main event and had to be pulled apart. Daisuke Sasaki got some shots in with the DAMNATION sign.

Mad Paulie was given a hentai book to read on the ring apron so he could be kept under control while he is in heat.

The first Marunage match went through without a hitch. Well except for Yuki Ueno’s team ambushing Konosuke Takeshita at the start of the show. Takeshita and his team got their revenge by winning the match later. Takeshita told the local wrestlers to give him a call whenever bad guys invade Tottori and he will rush to help them anytime.

Antonio Honda was in luck today. Yuki Iino had him beaten with the Haka Elbow but Yukinori Matsui was knocked down during the pin. Honda recovered, gave Iino a Dragon Screw, attack his arm and made him submit to the Octopus Hold. Honda admitted he was tired and beaten but interesting things happened when Matsui was not looking. By beating Iino, Honda says he has absorbed the power of the Haka and therefore the power of New Zealand. This will be an advantage for his DDT Extreme Title match with HARASHIMA.

7. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Endo pinned Katsumata with the Shooting Star Press (17:03).

DDT is back to work after their American vacation and there is a lot to get through. After the main event Konosuke Takeshita expressed his desire to win back the KO-D Openweight Title. However he has an even bigger desire to avenge his defeat to Daisuke Sasaki so he challenged him to a KO-D Tag Team Titles match instead! Takeshita picked Shunma Katsumata to be his partner, partly because Akito is out of action and Yuki Iino is more suited for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. After his challenge was made, The Moonlight Express came out demanding their title rematch against DAMNATION. If that wasn’t enough the team of Ricky Starks & Mike Rollins also came out wanting a title shot. Sasaki refused to hand out a title match to anybody until Tetsuya Endo talked to him. Endo said there are only two kinds of people in the world, those who take challenges and those who refuse them. Which one is Sasaki? That convinced Sasaki to make a 4 Way Tag match for the Tag Titles on 28th April!

When that was over with, Endo announced his first challenger for the KO-D Title on 28th April. It’s… Makoto Oishi? Even Oishi was surprised to hear this but he asked the fans to support him in Korakuen Hall. Oishi then became more confident, telling Endo he will be a weak champion if he can’t win on the 28th. Oishi will show Endo how he uses his head to win matches. Endo closed out the show telling the audience he was reborn in New York and grew up in New York. There are two kinds of people in this world, losers and the winner, Tetsuya Endo!

HARASHIMA had intentions to tell Antonio Honda their DDT Extreme Title stipulation today but he hasn’t been able to think of anything. Honda asked if he could be given time to come up with the match idea instead. HARASHIMA agreed and they shook hands as a promise to come up with the best rules to create the best match.

One High Kick after another resulted in a double knockout between Yukio Sakaguchi and Keisuke Okuda. Sakaguchi told Okuda he enjoyed that match and to remember they will be together again for a tag match in Yokohama next week.

Although Asuka and Saki Akai were opponents today, they were on the same page after the match. Asuka said she is starving to win a championship again and if Akai can help her, she’ll be happy to team up. Akai now needs one more person to join her team so she can challenge for the 6-Man Tag Titles.

Springtime means that Mad Paulie’s face is turning red again because he is back in heat.

Kazuki Hirata and Hiroshi Yamato complained that the other’s entrance is too long.

Antonio Honda talked about his experience in New York at the start of the show. He doesn’t understand why everyone booed his Hulk Hogan impersonation at the DDT show but when the real Hogan appeared at WrestleMania he was greatly cheered.

The 2019 King Of DDT tournament will begin on 29th April. So far 14 names have been revealed. They are Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Daisuke Sasaki, Yukio Sakaguchi, Akito, Soma Takao, Masahiro Takanashi, Kazusada Higuchi, MAO, Mike Bailey, Kota Umeda, Naomi Yoshimura, Yuki Ueno and Kazuki Hirata. A Battle Royal for the 1st Round losers will take place on 6th May and the winner will qualify for the 2nd Round happening that same day. The tournament winner will receive a KO-D Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” in July along with a million yen cash prize.
