6. The Man Of Shizuoka Shinya Aoki And The Triumphant Return Of Makoto Oishi! Shimizu Specialty Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Shinya Aoki defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Makoto Oishi when Aoki submitted Oishi with a Modified Omoplatta (16:18).

Just like what happened the last time they teamed together, Shinya Aoki wanted to copy HARASHIMA’s Diving Body Press. Konosuke Takeshita used a Power Bomb to place HARASHIMA in position for Makoto Oishi’s Luminous Press. Aoki broke the pin and tagged himself in. He and Oishi scrambled on the mat when Oishi put him in a Sleeper Hold. Aoki countered it into a European Clutch. Oishi got out of it and went for the Jikiden Tornado Clutch. Aoki countered that into an Omoplatta for the submission victory.

Nautilus told the crowd they will do their best to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles against Yuki Iino & Chihiro Hashimoto next week. Will the fans come to support them? “Yes or Nautilus!”

MAO and Mizuki Watase used a small cart to push each other into the ring posts as well as into Keigo Nakamura.

Speaking of Nakamura, he repeated the Hirata GO! glasses bit from yesterday’s show. It ended with Nakamura wearing Hisaya Imabayashi’s glasses again and dancing to “Toriko” by Nissy. Iino put on rugby headgear and accidentally tackled Nakamura with the Spear. Kazuki Hirata then pinned Nakamura with the Egoist Driver.

The right arm of Naomi Yoshimura was targeted by DAMNATION throughout the main event. Daisuke Sasaki attacked the arm with chairs outside the ring. However Yoshimura’s power couldn’t be contained and he was still able to smash Mad Paulie around. HARASHIMA helped Yoshimura set up Lariats. From there Yoshimura gave Paulie the Drill-A-Hole Piledriver for the win. This was a successful tour in his home of Osaka because he won the main events of both DDT shows.

The inclusion of Kuishinbo Kamen in the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match delivered some Osaka flavored comedy to the proceedings. When the match began Kamen sat in the front row and refused to wrestle. He finally got involved when Kazuki Hirata needed to make a hot tag. Kamen tagged in and started a chain reaction of Low Kicks to the leg with everyone over reacting the sell. Yuki Iino missed the Haka Elbow on Antonio Honda. When Honda attempted the same move he tripped and injured himself. He told his Gongitsune joke and Hirata did his dance afterwards. Iino joined in with the Haka and became too excited. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata tried to calm him down but he knocked them back and ran around ringside. Takeshita got him back under control. He then yelled “Iino Rocket” and threw him into Honda. Honda maneuvered Iino back around and made him Spear his ALL OUT teammates. All six wrestlers got into the ring and did a chain reaction of Low Blows ending with Yukinori Matsui. He unintentionally hit Kamen with a Lariat then hit Honda & Hirata with a Double Lariat when they both grabbed him in protest. Iino pinned Kamen with the Haka Elbow to ensure ALL OUT kept the titles. Takeshita swore he will invade OSW (the Osaka one, not the Review one) and show Kamen what strong style really is!

Yuni begun the day as DAMNATION’s temporary signboard holder, lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Yuki Ueno in a tag match and then got to face CIMA one on one! Yuni got a nearfall on CIMA with a Moonsault. CIMA came out on top by countering a Hurricanrana into a slow drop Power Bomb. He then applied a Camel Clutch to make Yuni give up. CIMA said that El Lindaman told him about a talented elementary school student training in DDT so he came here to have a look. When CIMA was 16 he spent a month in Mexico on his own. He joked that Yuni can do the same when he gets to that age. When Yuni graduates into a real pro wrestler, CIMA wants to face him again in a DDT ring. He promised this time he will fight Yuni at 120%! He also teased more appearances in DDT thanks to the business relationship between #STRONGHEARTS and DAMNATION.

Akito had the bright idea of loosening some of the corner turnbuckle pads. The plan backfired when Hiroshi Yamato tried to give him a German Suplex. Akito grabbed the turnbuckle to block the move but the loose pad made him slip through his grip and get Suplexed. Yamato went on to win with the Northern Lights Bomb.

At the end of the show Makoto Oishi tried to win the Iron Man Title from Ueno. He failed and ran off. Hirata then got the jump on Ueno and succeeded. Yukio Sakaguchi stood at the entrance gate waiting for Hirata. He chased him into Toru Owashi and Owashi pinned Hirata to end the show as the champion.

Yuni had an eventful day. Soon he will transition from a wrestling child into proper pro wrestling training. The first of his “graduation” matches took place today where he teamed with Nautilus in the main event. Together the trio were named the OSAKA Mirai Monsters. Yuni got stretched a bit by Konosuke Takeshita but the kid got his own back by Double Stomping on his fingers. Takeshita countered a Hurricanrana into the Walls Of Takeshita but Yuni was saved by Yuki Ueno. Yuni then hit Makoto Oishi with the Kamigoye before tagging out. Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura worked on Oishi while Yuni hit a Diving Foot Stomp on Shunma Katsumata. Ueno finished off Oishi with a Blizzard Suplex followed by a Diving Body Press. After the match Nautilus encouraged Yuni to get stronger and hinted that they know who Yuni’s mystery opponent is for one of his two matches tomorrow.

At the end of the show Yuni there was several Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes with Yuni ending up as the current champion.

The DDT Extreme Title match was held under KOK (Kawaii Of Kawaii) Rules. Pinfalls would only be counted if the wrestler did a cute pose during the pin. It was up to Yukinori Matsui to determine if the pose was cute or not. The task was easy for Pokotan. Anything the mascot did looked cute so Matsui counted every pin. HARASHIMA on the other hand couldn’t rely on just his handsome smile, he had to do bunny ears and smoochy faces along with it. Pokotan hit a No Rope Topé to the outside then got Danshoku Dieno to scribble marker on HARASHIMA’s face to get rid of his handsome looks. HARASHIMA hit a Shining Wizard, removing Pokotan’s head in the process. Dieno interfered again when HARASHIMA got pushed into Matsui. He attacked HARASHIMA with Pokotan’s head, did the Danshoku Driver and then Pokotan followed up with his own version of the Somato. Matsui got back up but didn’t count the pin because Pokotan’s robot face was exposed. That’s not cute! Pokotan got its head back on but that gave HARASHIMA time to recover and hit the proper Somato. Matsui wouldn’t count the pin because of the marker on HARASHIMA’s face. The solution was to put on Pokotan’s head. Matsui was happy to count from then on.

The first Iron Man Title switch of the day happened when Rina Yamashita beat Saki Akai. The two fought outside the ring and up to the entrance stage. Back in the ring Akai applied a Triangle Choke and still held on to it after Yamashita lifted her up into a Power Bomb. She went for the Quetzalcoatl but Yamashita countered it into a Back Flip. She then used a Lariat to set Akai up for the match ending Splash Mountain. Yamashita doesn’t know why Akai chose her to be in the Okibariyasu series but today she found out they are in sync together. Also she won her first title since becoming a freelancer. She wished Akai the best of luck for the rest of her series.

Mad Paulie got to wear the Hirata GO! glasses and dance after his match.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga’s plan to win today was to throw Akito into another room and lock him out. It didn’t work.

DDT “ROJO PRO WRESTLING IN HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES WINTER (2020)”, 11/01/2020
Tokyo Big Sight West 1.2 Hall
??? Fans

1. Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino, Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya and MAO & Keigo Nakamura when Yoshimura pinned Nakamura with a Fire Thunder from the stage through a table (32:18).

The stage was set with Hisaya Imabayashi and Pokotan welcoming the audience to DDT’s annual match at the HandMade In Japan Fes. Each team entered with their own weapons like a ladder, chairs and a table. The match started off with basic holds and grappling until it was time to cause some mayhem throughout the rest of the festival.

Naomi Yoshimura lifted Keigo Nakamura up in a Canadian Backbreaker and carried him around for all the fans to see. MAO put Yuki Iino in a Crossface Lock until Yukio Naya broke it up with a Shoulder Tackle. MAO hit back with a Shining Wizard. He then stole Pokotan’s feet and used them as a weapon.

The fighting moved throughout the market area where the wrestlers all put each other in submission holds. When they weren’t wrestling they were checking out all of the goods on sale.

Over in the play area, Nakamura climbed above the vending machines. He wanted to dive onto everyone but thought against it when nobody would get in position below. The others found a playhouse shaped like Mt. Fuji and formed a Headscissors chain through it. Naya then flipped everyone over with a Crab Hold. Yoshimura dragged everyone through the other side to escape.

Iino & Shunma Katsumata took control and piled everyone up in front of Mt. Fuji. Iino did the Haka Elbow onto the pile.

Nakamura found a large blue sphere that he wanted to dive off of. He needed help from the referee to climb it but still slipped off. Yuki Ueno had no trouble climbing the sphere and Moonsaulting off of it.

The match returned to the music area where everyone discovered a castle of chairs was built in front of the stage. Makoto Oishi had it built while Naya stood around as its protector. Iino accidentally charged into it when his attack missed Oishi. This made Oishi cry a lot.

The remains left a pile of chairs waiting to be used as weapons. Katsumata grabbed one but got it kicked into his head by Nakamura. Everybody’s attention then moved over to the ladder. They all fought over the chance to climb it.

Nakamura tried to climb but Iino pulled him down. Iino tried to climb but MAO pulled him down. MAO tried to climb but Oishi pulled him down. Oishi tried to climb… and everyone allowed him to. A reluctant Oishi eventually dived off the ladder.

MAO placed a bunch of chairs together and put Oishi through them with a Package Piledriver. Naya cut off the pin with a Knee Attack to MAO. He then Choke Slammed Oishi onto MAO. Iino did the Spear to Naya but Yoshimura broke up the pin.

Nautilus used their combined strength to give Iino and Double Brainbuster. Katsumata and Ueno fought up to the stage. Katsumata charged Ueno but was given a Back Body Drop off the stage onto everyone below.

Nakamura placed the ladder onto his shoulders and spun around, hitting whoever walked into him. He got on the stage and wanted to climb the ladder again but Nautilus stopped him. Nakamura kicked out of the double team so Ueno set up a table next to the stage. Yoshimura put Nakamura through the table with a Fire Thunder for the three count.

Ueno & Yoshimura addressed the fans after the match then asked if Nakamura was ok. He didn’t move so everyone laughed. They then asked the festival president if DDT can come back next year. He said he would consider it.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Chihiro Hashimoto & Yuki Iino
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Masato Tanaka

When Naomichi Marufuji joined DISASTER BOX last week, he was happy to meet the entire unit for the first time. The thing is according to Kazuki Hirata they have met before. They even spent a night drinking together. Marufuji doesn’t remember that. Even worse, he doesn’t remember Hirata’s name! So Toru Owashi has organised a match between the two. He knows Marufuji has wrestled the likes of Stalker Ichikawa so this match shouldn’t be an uncomfortable experience for him. It’s not about who wins or loses. It will be a chance for Hirata to leave an impression on Marufuji. Hirata has promised to do his best so Marufuji will never forget his name ever again!

An infomercial match for hair products has been added to the show. The wrestlers involved will all have their hair done up by a professional hairdresser. Owashi is upset over this because he’s had his hairstyle for nearly 20 years and doesn’t want to change it. Keigo Nakamura was brought out to show off his new hairstyle but Owashi figured out it was a wig and he pulled it off.

DDT “INTO THE FIGHT 2020”, 23/02/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes
2. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs MAO

MAO will face the winner of HARASHIMA versus Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. His Pokotan stunt last week got one over on both wrestlers so MAO should be prepared to face either.

It’s been decided that Konosuke Takeshita and Chris Brookes will be the two wrestlers fighting to become the first ever DDT UNIVERSAL Champion. Takeshita wants to be the first champion so he can bring DDT abroad and show everyone overseas what an exciting hotspot the promotion is. He’s happy to face Brookes again because he thinks they are the most interesting opponents for each other. Brookes thinks he is the better choice to promote DDT abroad but admits that he brings out his best against Takeshita. He has not achieved any of the goals he has set for his tours so far. He didn’t beat Takeshita for the KO-D Title, he didn’t win the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Takanashi and he didn’t win the D-Ou Grand Prix. It’s very important for him to become the first UNIVERSAL Champion when he begins his year long stay in Japan. What both wrestlers agree on is the title provides a blank slate and they will set the standard for its matches. They can provide something that can attract worldwide attention while being different from the KO-D Title and the DDT Extreme Title.

The business relationship between DAMNATION and #STRONGHEARTS is off to a strong start with a win over ALL OUT. That was the easy part, the hard part is trying to come up with a name for this alliance. Strong Damhearnation? Dastrongheartion? They don’t know!

Nautilus showed respect to Kazuki Hirata after the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. They are all part of DISASTER BOX so the match never got ill tempered. Although at the end of the match Yuki Ueno decided the throw Hirata out of the ring as a prank. Yuki Iino then attacked Naomi Yoshimura at ringside. Iino will be the next challenger for the KO-D Tag Titles with Chihiro Hashimoto.

Keisuke Ishii still wants to offer his assistance to Hirata despite their short lived tag team ending. He found out that Naomichi Marufuji still does not know who Hirata is even though he joined DISASTER BOX two days ago. Ishii promised to make sure Marufuji will remember Hirata from now on.

The NωA must feel like it happened an eternity ago for Makoto Oishi & MAO. It took some tricky mat work that MAO learned from the UK to beat his former idol mentor. He countered the European Clutch into a Backslide Pin with a headstand included for leverage. MAO explained afterwards the he learned the art of pinning opponents from training at the Fight Club: PRO dojo during his stay there. It was confirmed at the start of the show that MAO will face the winner of HARASHIMA Vs Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title on 23rd February.

Chris Brookes made it clear he wants to become the first DDT Universal Champion when he comes back for his year long stay in Japan.

Gorgeous Matsuno’s gameplan today was to attack Danshoku Dieno’s arm. Makes sense given how much of a grabby person Dieno is. The work paid off when Matsuno countered the Danshoku Driver and pinned his opponent with La Magistral Cradle. He asked Dieno if his life fell to the bottom at the age of 42. Because Matsuno has fallen and crawled back up many times in life. If Dieno wants to try and take the O-40 Title again, Matsuno will be waiting for him. Dieno never thought he would be beaten so decisively against Matsuno. He still has a specific goal to achieve in wrestling but now he’s thinking he may have to win the O-40 Title from Matsuno to get there.

Today was Yukio Naya’s first match back after having a high fever last week. Both Mad Paulie & El Lindaman are convinced he had the flu and were concerned that Naya was going to spread his germs to them. They came out wearing protective face masks and also a disinfectant spray. Lindaman ended up blinding Naya with the spray behind the ref’s back and gave him a Low Blow for the dirty victory.

Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi still want to have fun while they threaten to change the landscape of DDT. They forced Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura to pose with them over at the fan photo display after their match.

Shunma Katsumata confirmed the news he will be taking a few weeks off for surgery to remove a metal place from his cheek. He will return in February.

The Right To Challenge Anytime Anywhere Battle Royal returns on 26th January. The reason it the match is happening early this year is because the prizes will be active up until “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” in June.
