*Jiro Kuroshio fails in V2. HARASHIMA becomes the 47th DDT Extreme Champion!

The stage is now set for DDT’s Ultimate Party in Sumo Hall this November. HARASHIMA was the last man standing in the Survival 3 Way match, eliminating both Jiro Kuroshio and Tetsuya Endo to win the DDT Extreme Title! Kuroshio was the first man eliminated when the numbers game overwhelmed him. He blocked Endo’s Shooting Star Press and dropped him with the Implant. But when he pinned Endo it left him vulnerable for HARASHIMA to hit him with the Somato. Everyone was surprised to see the champion eliminated first! Endo went into full on attack mode against HARASHIMA but after weeks of insults, HARASHIMA finally proved he can still beat Endo when he pinned him with the Somato.

HARASHIMA thanked the fans for their support because they are the reason he won today. He told Kuroshio it is okay if he is going to America or if he is staying in Japan. He’ll always be waiting to see him again. Konosuke Takeshita was then brought down from the broadcast table to confirm the main event for “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is between him and HARASHIMA for both the KO-D Openweight Title and the DDT Extreme Title. Takeshita said he is surprised to face HARASHIMA again. He beat him for the KO-D Title in Saitama Super Arena two years ago which was when the previous era of DDT moved towards the current era. HARASHIMA told Takeshita that he has never forgotten that match. He knows Takeshita is both young and in perfect physical condition but he can still stand against him! He ended by saying all of the DDT brands will gather together at Sumo Hall to deliver a great show.

The power of rugby was on ALL OUT’s side especially since this show was happening the day after Japan defeated Ireland in the Rugby World Cup (Editor’s note: boo!). Yuki Iino entered the ring in almost full rugby gear taken from the No Side Game TV drama he worked on. But Daisuke Sasaki was in the same mindset and when the bell rang he rugby tackled Iino! Sasaki attacked him with chairs until Iino stopped him with his own rugby tackle Spear. However Iino’s rugby tactics backfired when he missed another Spear and tackled Daisuke Kiso by accident. Soma Takao blinded Iino with red Mist and sent him Spearing Akito out of the match. Takao dropped Iino with the Gin And Tonic then Sasaki applied the Cross Facelock. Iino tried to fight out by summoning power from his rugby ball but he eventually tapped out.

Sasaki yelled that just because Japan defeated Ireland in rugby doesn’t mean that Iino could beat DAMNATION in pro wrestling! He called out for any new team to challenge them. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo from BASARA came out. Sasaki asked if they were at the show. FUMA said that the BASARA roster has a plan to win all of DDT’s championships before BASARA splits off and becomes independent. FUMA challenged DAMNATION and also demanded it to be a Hardcore Match! Before Sasaki could answer, two men walked out wearing bags over their heads. They pulled the bags off to reveal it was Minoru Fujita & Daiki Shimomura! They like the idea of a Hardcore Match and asked to make it a 3 Way Tag. Shunma Katsumata then got in the ring and said he should be in the match because he is DDT’s hardcore wrestler! Akito agreed to be his tag partner because he wants to wrestle the BASARA guys. Sasaki accepted all of the challenges so the KO-D Tag Team Titles are being defended in a Hardcore 4 Way Tag Match at Sumo Hall!

Takeshita went into his match against Asuka with his lower back heavily taped up. Two days before the show he suffered a back injury from weightlifting. It effected his performance with limited movement after leap frogs and back pain preventing him from doing the German Suplex. Asuka took advantage but couldn’t beat Takeshita with the Swinging Choke Slam. Takeshita blocked the Moonsault with his knees and countered a cradle with one of his own for a flash three count on Asuka. The result left Asuka annoyed because she went into the match without any injuries and couldn’t beat a less than 100% Takeshita.

You’re never too old to succeed. Just ask Gorgeous Matsuno. At first things were going badly for him against Sanshiro Takagi. He missed the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow and had his left arm targeted from there. Matsuno would have chances to turn the tables but kept missing his signature Elbow Drop. Desperate, Matsuno took out powder and threw it. Unfortunately he didn’t realise that Daisuke Kiso was standing in front of him, not Takagi. With the ref blind, Takagi brought in chairs and plastic boxes to use as weapons. He lifted Matsuno up for the Himawari Bomb but something unexpected happened. Matsuno countered it into a Frankensteiner that sent Takagi crashing into the cases. Matsuno then rolled up Takagi into the School Boy and won the match! The new O-40 Champion told everyone he never gave up on his dream even at 58 years old. But today is not the end of his story. Matsuno’s dream will continue and he wants to share his dreams, courage and energy with everybody!

Cody Hall and Yukio Naya continue to be at each other’s throats, targeting each other in the 4 Way Tag. There was no such problems between Hiroshi Yamato & Mad Paulie. Paulie watched on while Yamato sang his way down to the ring. Antonio Honda tricked Naomi Yoshimura into hitting Yuki Ueno with a Lariat. Hall then picked up the pieces and beat Ueno with the Thunder Buster. Naya tried to get back in the ring to continue fighting Hall but Makoto Oishi held him back on the apron.

Masahiro Takanashi pinned Mizuki Watase to win his tag match with MAO but his thoughts are entirely on Sumo Hall. He challenges Ryuichi Sekine for the Union MAX Title at “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” and he isn’t happy that Sekine referred to him under his old ring name Masa Takanashi. Takanashi thinks that means Sekine has only seen him in DDT and is not aware of his work on the independent scene. He will teach Sekine who Masahiro Takanashi really is!

The mysterious letter that was sent to the DDT office during the week left some of the roster spooked. The wrestlers in the opening match gathered together in the locker room before the show to receive amulets that would protect them from any supernatural threats. Everyone except for Kazuki Hirata. He didn’t believe there was anything to worry about. But when the first match took place and Hirata wore his Hirata GO! glasses, his music was replaced with cries of “Help me…” The demon Saki emerged and entered the ring. She bit Hirata on the shoulder causing the match to get called off. Saki then chased everyone out of the ring and a message appeared on the screen saying “Let’s play a game…”

There was no waiting until Sumo Hall to get an inter-brand match. Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Takato Nakano in a DDT Vs BASARA pre-show match. Nakano was angry he lost after recently becoming one third of the UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Champions. Shimatani on the other hand is now so confident, he wants to fight Isami Kodaka!

Trainee Keigo Nakamura was given exciting news to start the show. He will have his official debut match on 19th October! Naomi Yoshimura will be his opponent but Yoshimura wasn’t impressed by Nakamura’s size. He thinks Nakamura can’t fight him with such a skinny body. Yoshimura placed down a weighing scale and got Nakamura to weigh himself. He weighs 72kg. Actually it was 71.1kg and that was with Nakamura wearing clothes. Yoshimura told Nakamura to reach 75kg before their match.

Kazusada Higuchi gave an update on his PCL injury. He is out of action for the rest of the year and will do his best to rehabilitate and return next year.

The final part of the show was a video message from Kenny Omega promoting his match with Riho against Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita at Sumo Hall. Omega said he is nervous about the match but also looking forward to it.

The D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 competitors are Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Some Takao, Yukio Sakaguchi, Yuki Ueno, Naomi Yoshimura, Yuki Iino, Keisuke Ishii, Bull James, Chris Brookes, Masato Tanaka and Chihiro Hashimoto!

The KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles (remember them?) have been vacated because the champions have not defended the belts since November 2017. New champions will be crowned at Sumo Hall in a match between teams captained by Danshoku Dieno and Super Sasadango Machine.

7. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Iino pinned Sasaki with the Spear (16:30).

Yuki Iino has finished his TV work and immediately made an impact by pinning Daisuke Sasaki in his return match! Akito called Iino the hero of today’s show and he is really glad that Iino won.

Gorgeous Matsuno was so excited to begin the 3 Way Match he booked with Tetsuya Endo and MAO. Then the bell rang and Endo pinned him in 11 seconds. Matsuno asked for a rematch otherwise everyone who came to see the show would be disappointed. The match restarted but went pear shaped when Yukinori Matsui got knocked out. Matsuno brought in chairs to use. When Endo and MAO grabbed the chairs, Matsuno stopped them with Flying Cross Chops into the chairs. Matsuno hurt his hands but when Matsui got back up, he saw Matsuno hurt with his opponents standing next to him holding up chairs. Matsui disqualified Endo and MAO meaning Matsuno was the winner! After the match Matsuno told everyone about the trouble he had getting to the venue from a cancelled flight to a delayed train to the venue. But no matter what happens to Matsuno, he will always stand up and push forward!

HARASHIMA also complimented Matsuno for his dedication to travel for shows no matter how bad the weather is.

Kazuki Hirata said today was his God given chance to crush Yukio Sakaguchi! He instantly tapped out to an Anklelock. Sakaguchi later pinned Hirata in the rematch.

Makoto Oishi learned that Masahiro Takanashi was going into their match with injured knees that he suffered while wrestling in Thailand recently. However Takanashi learned that Oishi injured both of his arms when he slipped in a shower after the Campsite Pro Wrestling match. The injuries played a big role in their match, both as targets and as something that hampered them. Oishi put Takanashi in an Indian Deathlock but Takanashi latched on an Arm Lock in return until the bell rang. There was confusion over the result but Matsui ruled that Oishi gave up first, making Takanashi the winner.

Cody Hall and Yukio Naya confronted each other after the opener.

A couple of matches were moved around due to delayed arrivals during typhoon weather.

6. Shizuoka Hero, Makoto Oishi Triumph!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Endo submitted Oishi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (13:35).

Makoto Oishi’s local return was spoiled by Tetsuya Endo’s Yurikamome Hold. Afterwards Endo mocked HARASHIMA’s usual post-match promos, predicting that HARASHIMA will blame a DAMNATION ambush that happened before the bell. Endo said it is just another week of HARASHIMA thinking of excuses for losing to him. Daisuke Sasaki interrupted Endo’s promo to ask if anyone knew the result of the New Zealand Vs South Africa match happening in the Rugby World Cup. He then said he doesn’t care about rugby.

The 3 Way match mostly focused on Konosuke Takeshita and Asuka which made Kazuki Hirata feel like the awkward third wheel. Asuka got rid of Takeshita with a German Suplex and won with a Swinging Choke Slam on Hirata. Takeshita told Asuka afterwards that their first match together was a tag with four in it, then today was a 3 Way. All that is left is them to fight one on one and he is looking forward to it.

The planned Daisuke Kiso Marunage match was postponed and will be held on a future show. Toru Owashi asked for the match to be a Lucha Libre Rules tag match instead. Shunma Katsumata and MAO both declined but Kiso granted it. Owashi got the pin but admitted that Naomi Yoshimura did most of the work. Yoshimura asked everyone to support their kind of lucha.

Yukio Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee but Soma Takao dodged it and Yukio Naya took the hit instead. Mad Paulie took advantage and pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash.

0. Exhibition Match: Shunma Katsumata defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Texas Clover Hold (6:21).
1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno, HARASHIMA, Antonio Honda & Makoto Oishi, Ken Ohka, Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari and Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa when Kodaka pinned Ueno with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the cliff into the trout pond (83:09).

Bad weather postponed the original date of the match but other than that nothing stops Campsite Pro Wrestling!

Before the advertised match began, an exhibition took place with the trainee Keigo Nakamura taking on Shunma Katsumata. The match stayed in and around the gym mats representing the ring. Katsumata won with a Texas Cloverleaf then sang “Going my ωay!!!!!~You Are Not Alone” over a megaphone.

After a performance of the Japanese national anthem, it was time for the big match to begin! The Ganbare☆Wrestling team were led by Ken Ohka wearing a gas mask. Cat’s Pye all entered standing on the back of a truck. The BASARA team looked ready to go until Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi went to the ground and laid himself out flat. Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno were all dressed in military gear as if they were about to enter a survival Battle Royal game. The other DDT team were just in their regular wrestling gear and were by default the most normal team involved.

Things got off to an odd start when FUMA chased after opponents with nunchucks while Hiroshi began doing yoga stretches. Others liked what they saw and decided to join in. Yuki Kamifuku then tried to attract everyone’s attention with her modelling poses.

Ohka had enough and went in search of another area of the park. He ended up falling into a trout pond.

Everyone came across a pitched tent. Yumehito Imanari opened it up to look inside and found Cody Hall! An angry Hall attacked Imanari and a few others for disturbing his camping experience. He wouldn’t attack the women though and they were grateful to him because of it. He went back into his tent and the wrestlers moved elsewhere.

HARASHIMA and Isami Kodaka pushed Ueno inbetween some trees until he got stuck. HARASHIMA then scared Ueno by placing bugs on him.

All three women on Cat’s Pye climbed onto the roof of a nearby shack. They all encouraged each other to dive off onto everyone below. Only Mina Shirakawa went through with it. Kamifuku & Yuna Manase tricked her into jumping by saying they would all go together. They just stayed in place when Shirakawa jumped.

A large chain of wrestling holds between everyone took them up a hill where Hiroshi and Antonio Honda were seen meditating together. Hiroshi led everyone in a stretching exercise then demanded 3,500 yen from each person for the class fee.

FUMA found another tent and threatened whoever was inside to come out. It was SAGAT! He was supposed to be in the match on the original date but went ill with the flu. Now that it was postponed until today, he got recovered but never got invited back! He attacked his supposed teammates Kodaka & FUMA. They retaliated by burning down his tent!

The match went through a new route and Imanari found somewhere familiar. It was the hut he hid in during last year’s match when everybody shot fireworks at him! He told everyone it was his house and tried to step in. Unfortunately for him it was already occupied by Cody Hall! He threatened Imanari but calmed down when he saw Shirakawa, picking up a flower for her.

With everybody paying attention to Hall, Imanari took Manase hostage and hid inside the hut. He threatened to start filming movies of Manase but everybody shot fireworks at them until he let her go.

MAO and HARASHIMA fought by a small waterfall and both tried to down each other in it. Ueno and FUMA fought on top of a roof with Kodaka shooting fireworks at them. Ueno finally had enough and climbed down to the ground. It was here where he found something shocking.

Ueno saw a fence in the distance where both Kamifuku and Shirakawa were found strangled to death with nooses! Ueno asked who could have done such a thing. Imanari suddenly turned detective and found pieces of the girls’ costumes in Ueno’s pocket. Ueno grabbed Imanari and tried to strangle him. Imanari was rescued when Makoto Oishi struck Ueno over the head with a rock.

Oishi then went over to Kamifuku and Shirakawa and tried to revive them. They woke up, yelled “We’re zombies!” then chased after him.

MAO successfully used his gilly suit to hide away from the action and ambush Kodaka.

FUMA jumped off a tree to put Imanari through a table.

MAO used his gilly suit again to scare Keisuke Ishii off the roof of a hut. He then Moonsaulted onto everyone.

The match moved back to the starting area where the BASARA team continued to shoot fireworks at their opponents. Ohka & Imanari fought back by spraying fire extinguishers at them.

Imanari found the truck that Cat’s Pye entered in. He wanted to drive it but found out Cody Hall was in the driver’s seat! Hall attacked Imanari while Ohka got in the truck and drove into his opponents.

The truck was stopped single handedly by Takeshita. He stopped the truck in its tracks and even pushed it backwards.

Ishii attacked Takeshita and held him in front of the pond. Ohka charged over to do the Flame Spear but Takeshita got out of the way and Ohka plunged into the pond.

One by one everyone got thrown or slammed into the pond. It ended with Kodaka jumping off a cliff and hitting the Diving Double Knee Drop onto everyone in the pond below. He pinned Ueno in the water to give Team BASARA the victory after one hour and twenty minutes!

Kodaka said that this might be his last Campsite Match because BASARA will be leaving the DDT family soon. If it is then he is glad to have been rewarded with the win today. Meanwhile MAO found a gun that shot fireworks and fired it at the trainees for everyone’s entertainment. SAGAT tried to stop him with the Goregrind but MAO jumped out of the way. SAGAT landed in the campfire, again for everyone’s entertainment.

He wants a match with Kodaka after Kodaka pinned him last week. For now he has to do with Takato Nakano in the pre-show match. Hiroshi Yamato takes Shimatani’s place in the 4 Way Tag, continuing Yamato’s unusual association with DAMNATION. Not quite a friend but not quite an enemy either.

*Akito becomes the 1,415th champion.
-. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Puma King defeated Akito (c) with a School Boy (7:41 pm).
*Puma King becomes the 1,416th champion.

It looked like ALL OUT was going to finish the show on a happy ending. Akito pinned Puma King in the main event, making him the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. Akito told everyone that ALL OUT was on track to win all of the championships in DDT. All that is left for them to get is the DDT Extreme Title and the KO-D Tag Team Titles. While he was talking to Konosuke Takeshita about putting together a potential DDT Triple Crown match between them, Keigo Nakamura snuck into the ring to try and pin Akito. It failed and Akito gave Nakamura a Michinoku Driver II. Daisuke Sasaki & Puma King then attacked ALL OUT and King pinned Akito with a School Boy to become the champion again. King told everyone that this was the last show of his tour and he is going back to Mexico with the Iron Man Title!

Tetsuya Endo held HARASHIMA in an Achilles Tendon Lock outside the ring while Match #5 reached its conclusion. He held it on for as long as he could after the match ended.

The Marunage match featured a lot of vest tearing, licking and “Yes!” chants. Pero Pero Master came out to a version of “Real American” with different lyrics. Poro Poro Master came out to “Voodoo Child”. M Samurai put Daniel Nobryan in a Wristlock then pulled off his beard for a quick submission victory. Nobryan technically submitted because “Yes!” is all he can say so Yukinori Matsui thought he verbally gave up. A rematch was agreed to but M Samurai didn’t feel like he was up to the task. He stopped wrestling midway through and declared he is now S Samurai! The difference is now used chair attacks and gave Low Blows to his opponents. Nobryan hit Samurai with the Running Knee and Pero Pero Master pinned him with a no handed Pedigree. Pero Pero Master and Poro Poro Master shook hands after the match.

Hiroshi Yamato promoted DDT’s show in Kimitsu City, Chiba on 1st December after he won his match.

Makoto Oishi spoke about his history with Chiba 2AW Square at the start of the show. He said he dyed this venue blue back when he wrestled for K-DOJO and it still looks like home to him.
