All aboard! DDT teamed up with Choshi Electric Rail for their latest Street Wrestling experiment. Can you do a pro wrestling free for all inside a moving train? Sure you can! The train journey began in Nakano Town Station and do a full circle around the railway line. The match itself was a Falls Count Anywhere Battle Royal with new wrestlers entering the train at a different station. Pinfalls, submissions and being ejected from the train and left behind at a station were the intended ways to eliminate the opponents. Sanshiro Takagi, Rekka and HARASHIMA were the first entrants to start the match. The three did what they could while they adjusted to the cramped surroundings.

Nobuhiro Shimatani and Yasu Urano entered at Choshi Station. They were already fighting each other at the platform when the train arrived. Urano threw Shimatani against one of the railings and directed the others to do a Train Attack. Keisuke Ishii entered at Nishiinkajima Station and went through an athletic back and forth with Urano. When he switched focus to Takagi, Urano took the opportunity to low blow Shimatani.

The crowd gasped when the train arrived at Kimigahama Station because Mad Paulie was there waiting for them. He clubbed Ishii with a forearm until Urano leapt on his back and applied a Sleeper Hold. Shimatani hit a Standing Shooting Star on Ishii and pinned him while everyone else piled on top. It was ruled that Shimatani gets credited for eliminating Ishii so that means he won Ishii’s Right To Challenge Contract! As this was going on Paulie countered Urano’s Sleeper Hold into an Argentine Backbreaker. He walked up and down the train with Urano in the move until Urano gave up.

At Inabaru Station, Guanchulo was chased onto the train by Danshoku Dino and Royce Isaacs. Rekka tried to stop Dino because it is illegal to grope people on trains. Dino gave him a Lip Lock and the Danshoku Nightmare to eliminated him. NωA were next to enter at Ogawa Station. They sang and dance on the platform while Takagi and HARASHIMA fought over next to them. An old lady on the platform waved everyone off as the train departed. Dino and Isaacs double teamed HARASHIMA and tried to convince Paulie to join in but he attacked them instead. When the train stopped at an empty Kimigahama Station, Dino pushed Paulie out and the train left without him.

Back in the train there was a Headcsissor link formed from one end of the train to the other. Takagi turned everyone over with a Boston Crab link with Isaacs suffering the most at the other end. Isaacs reached over and grabbed a railing which in this situation counted as a Rope Break. Isaacs was then accidentaly given a Lip Lock when Shimatani ducked Dino’s affections. Shimatani then gave Isaacs a School Boy to eliminate him and win his second Right To Challenge Contract!

Saki Akai and Lady Beard got in the train at Kaiokajima Station and they put Shunma Katsumata and MAO in separate Cobra Twists. HARASHIMA grabbed Akai and put her in the Romero Special. Dino used Katsumata and MAO as stepping stones so he could go in position for a human pyramid Hell Gate. Makoto Oishi used it to great effect by pushing Takagi face first into Dino’s backside followed by a successful pinfall. Oishi and Dino then joined forces to form a Revolving Hell Gate on Akai. Katsumata pinned her for the elimination.

The final entrant appeared at Kurosui Station. It was Kazusada Higuchi wearing his sumo mawashi. Lady Beard squared up to him for a Sumo match but Higuchi squeezed him in a Bearhug until he tapped out. All three NωA members combined tried to push Higuchi back but Higuchi shoved them out of the train at Choshi Station for a triple elimination. HARASHIMA looked like he was about to join in the sumo fun but he threw kicks at Higuchi instead. Higuchi rushed in and was knocked down by a High Kick. HARASHIMA then rolled over with a Jackknife to pin Higuchi. HARASHIMA shouted that he won the duel because “This is pro wrestling.”

On the other side of the train Guanchulo pinned Shimatani with a Backslide Pin, winning one of the RTC Contracts. Shimatani still holds the other one so he wasn’t too upset over it. With HARASHIMA and Guanchulo as the final two wrestlers in the match, the train wasn’t far away from its final destination. HARASHIMA hit Guanchulo with a Buzzsaw Kick and followed with the Somato. HARASHIMA won the Train Pro Wrestling Match and gets an RTC Contract as his prize! The train arrived back at Nakano Town Station and HARASHIMA thanked the 40 fans for coming to support them.

259 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Brand Anticipated Scramble Bunkhouse Hardcore 6 Way Match: Sanshiro Takagi defeated Toru Owashi, SAGAT, Nonoko, Yumehito Imanari and Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takagi pinned Shimatani with a Diving Body Press from the Ladder onto the Zexy Magazine through the Table (11:16).
2. Actwres girl’Z Offer Match ~A Bite Of A Cool Sensation The Sweep! Actress Girls Incoming!!~: Saori Anou defeated Tam Nakano with a Fisherman Suplex (6:36).
3. GuyZ Annual Round Boxing Handicap Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki ended in a No Contest (R4 2:19).
4. Last Gun Standing Match: Danshoku Dino defeated Takayuki Ueki with the Electrical Parade (11:33).
5. Special Single Match: Colt Cabana defeated Antonio Honda with the Superman Dive (13:31).
6. GuyZ Army Vs Sexy Army Full Challenge: Kazusada Higuchi, Ryuichi Sekine & Ken Ohka defeated Makoto Oishi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Mineo Fujita when Sekine pinned Oishi with the Kamikaze (7:08).

The Sexy Army did not come to the show to mess around although they did wear bath towels around their waists for the entire show. With Makoto Oishi giving the orders, he and his boys kidnapped guest idol Tsukasa Wachi and had her tied to the ring post with a rope during the main event. The GuyZ Army fought them to save her with Ryuichi Sekine pinning Oishi after a Lariat from Kazusada Higuchi, the Spear from Ken Ohka and a Kamikaze from Sekine. Oishi grovelled for forgiveness after the match but it was a ruse for the Sexy Army to ambush GuyZ. The fighting was stopped by the Actwres girl’Z wrestlers who rescued Wachi and forced the Sexy Army to flee. Sekine invited all of the girls to spend the rest of Valentine’s Day with GuyZ but they each came up with excuses to turn them down.

Colt Cabana and Antonio Honda both took their time wrestling each other. Whenever the action heated up one of them would ask the other to wait a second so they could catch their breath. When the match became more active, Yukinori Matsui ended up getting knocked out after a Bionic Elbow duel. Honda had Cabana beat with the Diving Elbow Drop but Matsui wasn’t there to count the pin. By the time Matsui recovered, Cabana leapt on top of Honda with the Superman Dive for the three count. Honda has no hard feelings over the result. He and Cabana instead bonded over their love of the Bionic Elbow.

The goal of the Last Gun Standing match was for your opponent to get an erection. Danshoku Dino claimed before the match that he is not attracted to Takayuki Ueki so he had the advantage. However none of his usual moves could excite Ueki in that manner. It turned out Ueki did have a gun in his pants and he wasn’t happy to see Dino. He held up Dino at gunpoint with the demand that he could get a date with Tsukasa Wachi. Dino knocked him off the ropes to disarm him and after an exchange of finishers both men were down and out. Wachi came out wearing her bikini and began to cheer for Ueki. That caused Ueki to stand up in more ways than one resulting in him losing the match.

Wachi was all over this show. She was originally brought in to be the ring girl for the annual GuyZ boxing match but did her job fully clothed. She took more clothing after every round, attracting more and more men to ringside to watch. The only men not enjoying this were the boxers. Yukio Sakaguchi was only focused on winning while Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki were getting slaughtered as a result. Even worse for Ihashi & Suzuki, everyone else did whatever they could to avoid ending the fight so Wachi could continue stripping. Yukinori Matsui for example pretended to faint when he was about to finish a 10 count. The situation got so bad that Suzuki punched the cameraman for getting in the way in order to get a better view of Wachi. The other referee Yuya Okada had enough and called for the match to end, saying it’s what Kyohei Wada would have done. Matsui got so mad that he attacked Okada. The place was about to descend into chaos when Wachi told everyone to stop. She then stripped down to a blue bikini, solving everyone’s problems.

Nobuhiro Shimatani complained about having to wrestle on Valentine’s Day. He claimed he had other more important things to do. The others then accused him of being a virgin. Shimatani grabbed Nonoko’s issue of Zexy Magazine and threatened to destroy it. But he was stopped by Sanshiro Takagi who placed him on a table. Takagi then placed the magazine on top of him, climbed a ladder and Splashed Shimatani through the table to win. After the match Takagi told him he shouldn’t be ashamed of being a 20 year old virgin because that means he is still pure. SAGAT then admitted that he too is a virgin. Shimatani hugged him with joy.

6. Smile Squash Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Akito & Yasu Urano when Sasaki pinned HARASHIMA with the Vietnam Driver II (17:01).

The battles between HARASHIMA and Daisuke Sasaki keep on tilting back and forth. This time Sasaki ended the fight on top, pinning HARASHIMA in the main even 6-Man Tag. He countered a Crucifix into the NOW OR NEVER. Tetsuya Endo followed up with a Swan Dive 450 Splash then Sasaki got the pin with the Vietnam Driver II. After the match Sasaki again lied about wanting to fight fair with HARASHIMA. This time HARASHIMA knew Sasaki was going to kick him low so he caught it. Sasaki acted embarrassed and promised never to do something stupid like that ever again. He even had Endo come over and hold down his right leg so it wouldn’t kick out. This was all a distraction for Sasaki to kick HARASHIMA below the belt with his left leg.

Problems rose between Konosuke Takeshita and Makoto Oishi at the beginning of the show. Both of them wanted to do the opening speech and they proceeded to argue over who sold more T-shirts. Takeshita said that he’s been training non-stop at the gym because he wants to main event at Saitama Super Arena. Oishi replied that he’s been wrestling since before Takeshita was in elementary school and their match later will be the culmination of his 15 year career. They then both stopped dead in their tracks to warmly welcome everyone to the start of the show. After Takeshita beat Oishi in the semi-main event, he apologised for the mean things he said before. He said today they fought the kind of big match he expects to have in Saitama. He hopes when he goes on to win the KO-D Openweight Title there, Oishi’s friends and mother will be there to watch him. Then they can have a title match together for them.

Masahiro Takanashi wasn’t impressed with Team DNA. He thinks the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match will have the same result at today. Total victory for Shuten-dōji!

11 days away from the ring left Danshoku Dino feeling pretty excited to return. His perverted antics got so bad that his return match had to be called off. It was at the point where there was a giant pile on with Yukinori Matsui stuck in the middle when Matsui decided enough was enough.

Team Oishi: Makoto Oishi, KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi, Yasu Urano, Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki, MAO, Guanchulo, Nobuhiro Shimatani, Yoshihiko

Today’s show was built around a team challenge with HARASHIMA and Makoto Oishi as captains. According to Johnny Etajima, there has been a long standing conflict between the two wrestlers in BOYZ. Special rules were put in place for the tournament matches such as two count pinfalls for needed to win and 5 counts outside the ring being enough to DQ wrestlers. In the opening introductions everyone wore football uniforms. HARASHIMA said his team was going to win because he has so many friends.

Team Oishi took the lead by winning the first three matches. Team HARASHIMA won Match #4 but was still down by two when intermission hit and half time was called. HARASHIMA still had faith in his friends to win the remaining matches. Oishi blamed Yasu Urano for giving their team their only loss up to this point. Urano was counted out when Masahiro Takanashi threw a football at him as he tried to re-enter the ring. A time limit draw between Konosuke Takeshita and Keisuke Ishii then meant that Team HARASHIMA could no longer score enough points to win the challenge. All they could do now was score enough points to reach a tie. Akito sent the team off on the right track by submitting Oishi in the penultimate match. Then in the main event Oishi instructed MAO run away from HARASHIMA until the time ran out because a draw is enough to give them total victory. Unfortunately HARASHIMA pinned MAO with the Somato, ending the challenge in a draw.

Etajima announced that a winner would be decided by sudden death overtime. Each team would send forth one wrestler and the first to get a one count pinfall would win the entire challenge. HARASHIMA picked himself while Oishi lined up his team’s strongest wrestlers on the apron. However he spent so much time in the ring that Etajima thought Oishi was nominating himself. The bell rang and HARASHIMA did move after move trying to pin Oishi with no success. Oishi got the pinfall out of nowhere when he countered the Double Knee Gutbuster into a Cradle. Oishi celebrated by singing with the rest of NωA while his other teammates celebrated.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey (c) when Funaki pinned Bailey with the Hybrid Blaster (14:43).
*Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey fail in V2. Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi become the 59th KO-D Tag Team Champions.

Looks like Masakatsu Funaki will be sticking around for a while because he is now a KO-D Tag Team Champion! Funaki drilled Mike Bailey’s head into the canvas with the Hybrid Blaster to cause the title change. Yukio Sakaguchi’s victory speech was cut off when HARASHIMA & Akito entered the ring. Akito reminded Sakaguchi that he beat him by submission yesterday. He asked how humiliating must it have been? Sakaguchi tried to brush his comments off but Akito then said that there’s no way the pain he caused to Sakaguchi’s legs have already gone away. Sakaguchi said that liquor is his medicine. He then wanted to know if Akito was here to challenge him. Well there’s no need as Sakaguchi nominated him and HARASHIMA as the No. 1 Contenders anyway. When Smile Squash were sent away, Funaki told a story about meeting Sakaguchi’s father Seiji Sakaguchi at a New Japan training camp when he was around 16 years old. He did not think he would be winning championships with Seiji’s son 32 years later.

HARASHIMA got a measure of revenge on Daisuke Sasaki for yesterday’s sneak attack. After he hit Sasaki with the Somato, HARASHIMA then applied a Sleeper Hold and choked out Sasaki to win. When Sasaki was revived backstage he asked if Candice LeRae saw what happened. Apparently she did. Sasaki then swore he will kill HARASHIMA!

At the start of the show Makoto Oishi had to be encouraged by Amon Tsurumi to have his match with Yoshihiro Takayama. Oishi was intimidated by the massive size difference and the result was never in doubt. Oishi was fighting back the tears as he thanked Takayama for the match backstage afterwards. Takayama tried to cheer him up by saying he showed No Fear.

Yasu Urano will get his AJPW Jr. Title match against Keisuke Ishii on 29th January. He was in such a good mood over this and his win today that he was full of praise for Ishii in his post-match promo. Urano said he would not mind if he had to wait for the title shot but the All Japan office gave their blessing for it to happen on the 29th. Urano promises a fair fight but Ishii doesn’t believe him.

Antonio Honda doesn’t feel bad about his age when he teams with Yuni. Honda’s 39 years old and Yuni is only 8. That makes their average age 23. Honda is now thinking up a team name for themselves.

There was a little bit of tension between Kazuki Hirara and Candice LeRae. Candice complained about Hirata’s dance entrance. However she was happy to dance herself once she put on the Hirata GO! glasses. During the dance Kazusada Higuchi Headbutted Hirata in time with the music. Candice then pinned Hirata with the Balls Plex.

Danshoku Dino Vs Yoshihiro Takayama was booked for Osaka Edion Arena #2 on 4th February.

7. DDT Extreme Title – Yokohama Chinatown TLC Match: Jun Kasai (c) defeated Makoto Oishi with the Vertical Drop Reverse Tiger Driver (17:55).
*V1 for Jun Kasai.

Bowls of Chinese food were placed in the corner for the Yokohama Chinatown TLC Match. The goal of the match was to either beat your opponent as normal or eat three bowls of Chinese food. Makoto Oishi offered a handshake before the match but Jun Kasai flipped him the middle finger. However he agreed to sit down and eat a bowl of noodles with Oishi before fighting. When they finished they began throwing punches. Oishi reached for a second bowl but Kasai stopped him by hitting him with a lady’s handbag at ringside. Oishi fought back with a chair until Kasai was too beat up to prevent him from finishing the second bowl. Oishi then used a ladder to target Kasai’s legs. He put Kasai in a Figure Four Leg Lock and tried to eat the third bowl at the same time. Kasai fought his way out and hit a Lariat followed by the Reverse Tiger Driver. Oishi kicked out of that and also kicked out of the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder! Kasai did one more Reverse Tiger Driver, the Vertical Drop kind and that was it for Oishi. Kasai called out for his next challenger. Doesn’t matter if it is a foreigner, a woman, a child or an animal. Out came Akito, he’s not afraid of Kasai. He asked the champion what his favourite match rules are. Kasai said Death Match. Akito suggested a Lighttube Death Match, but only one Lighttube. Whoever breaks it with their opponent wins. Kasai accepted and the match will take place on 3rd January.

Konosuke Takeshita describes Mad Paulie as somebody who has no feelings or even a human heart. However he noticed a glimpse of humanity coming from him during today’s match. Paulie cares about winning and losing if nothing else. Takeshita’s preparations for their Christmas Day singles match is to eat snacks instead of turkey.

HARASHIMA and Shigehiro Irie had to be pulled apart after Match #5.

DDT announced a return date to Nagano for 23rd April next year. As the sales manager for that region, Toru Owashi is in charge of running the show

Gouma Ryu was again in attendance to promote BASARA’s Christmas Day show at Korakuen Hall. However he forgot to bring tickets to sell at the merch table so he handed out business cards instead.

7. Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano defeated Shigehiro Irie & Kouki Iwasaki when HARASHIMA pinned Iwasaki with the Somato (14:07).

Shigehiro Irie gave HARASHIMA a thumbs down after the main event. HARASHIMA called the match just a preview of what will happen on Christmas Day and he will win just like he did today.

Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii now have to nothing to be afraid of after they beat a trio featuring the KO-D Tag Team Champions. Ishii thinks their odds of winning the titles tomorrow are at 80% and predicts they will win in 8 minutes. Mike Bailey did not like wrestling against Dino but not because Dino is gay, Bailey thinks Dino grabbing a woman in the ring the same way he did to him would be just as disgusting. Konosuke Takeshita ensured Bailey that he would fight Dino so Bailey could just fight Ishii.

Daisuke Sasaki gave Shuten-dōji one more warning that DAMNATION will destroy them at the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title match tomorrow.

Gota Ihashi had his face painted to look like Don Frye so he could reenact the famous fight with Yoshihiro Takayama. He was immediately pinned after a Big Boot and the Pride FC victory music played over the sound system. A rematch took place and Takayama pinned Ihashi again this time with the Running Knee Lift.

Makoto Oishi knows that his win over Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao in the 3 Way Match was a fluke. However he needs all the confidence boost he can get to prepare for Jun Kasai. He will beat Kasai even if it is a fluke.

In a callback to their previous King Of Dark Title match, Saki Akai demanded that this time Cherry should be given the championship if she lost the pre-show match. Luckily for her, Nobuhiro Shimatani was pinned again so he stays as champion.
