6. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated Meiko Satomura & Daisuke Sasaki when Irie pinned Satomura with the Beast Bomber (14:15).
The unusual pairing of Meiko Satomura and Daisuke Sasaki could not put aside their differences against RENEGADES. Sasaki kept trying to avoid being tagged in whenever he could. Satomura hit him hard when she was able to tag him. Sasaki did wrestle seriously against Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase but when the moment was right for him to betray Satomura, he took it. Sasaki hit Satomura with a Thrust Kick and left her for dead so Irie could hit her with the Beast Bomber. Satomura still had strength left in her and she proved it by kicking out of the Missile Kick Piledriver combo from RENEGADES. But another Beast Bomber from Irie put her down for the count. Irie told Satomura that there is a difference in power between men and women. She will be destroyed in Korakuen Hall to the point that she won’t get back up.
When Satomura left ringside, Irie’s promo was interrupted by a video message from Danshoku Dieno. In the message Dieno said he will get revenge on Irie for attacking him but he won’t be a coward. He will fight Irie face to face! Dieno’s music hit and RENEGADES faced the entrance waiting for Dieno to come out. Dieno snuck into the ring from a different angle and blinded everyone with Milk Mist! He then gave Irie the Danshoku Driver. Dieno got on the microphone and acted like he did what he promised. He attacked Irie head on. Now they have to wait until 23rd September for the Survival 3 Way Match. Dieno wonders if Satomura will survive today’s defeat and continue fighting? Will Irie rip apart two people in the ring? Whatever will happen, Dieno will come out of it as the KO-D Openweight Champion!
Kota Umeda kicked away Shinya Aoki’s hand when he was offered a handshake. Bad move! Aoki took Umeda’s kicks and grappled him down to the canvas. Umeda gained momentum with a Dragon Suplex, a Brainbuster and a PK but as soon as Aoki trapped him in a Foot Choke it was all over for Umeda.
Aoki thanked Umeda for the match then talked about the other reason why he stepped into the DDT ring today. Aoki wants to challenge HARASHIMA for the DDT Extreme Title! Aoki is aware that HARASHIMA will get to choose the match stipulation so he asked for the match rules to be sent to him within a week. He will accept either a hand written message or a PDF document. Tetsuya Koda and Hisaya Imabayashi argued over when to book the match and agreed to have it at the 21st October Korakuen show. HARASHIMA welcomed Aoki to the harsh world of EXTREME!
The DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT match was called off when Nobuhiro Shimatani interfered and struck Yukinori Matsui with the DAMNATION placard from the DNA Draft. Konosuke Takeshita stood up from the commentary table and confronted Shimatani. It’s not time for Takeshita’s official return from injury but he asked Koda if the match could restart as a 6-Man Tag with him and Shimatani both included. The match restarted and while Takeshita got his hands on Shimatani, DAMNATION quickly targeted his injured shoulder. It was clear that Takeshita wasn’t ready to return but he was still able to pin Shimatani with a Crucifix to get ALL OUT the win. Takeshita told Akito & Yuki Iino about his frustrations while he was out of action. Now that he is back he wants to wrestle at the rest of this week’s DDT shows.
Jun Kasai used his goggles to protect his eyes from Antonio Honda’s Shining Gongitsune attack. After he won the 3 Way Match, Kasai again got in trouble for talking about the Dramatic General Election while standing inside the ring.
You don’t use La Magistral Cradle on Toru Owashi. You just don’t! Masahiro Takanashi learned that the hard way. The return of DISASTER BOX is getting Owashi his groove back.
Ryan Davidson’s final match on his first tour of DDT ended in defeat to MAO. He got time to say goodbye to the crowd and promised he will be back.
Soma Takao ignored Makoto Oishi’s handshake after their match.
Keisuke Ishii won his match with a Running Knee Strike instead of the usual Kneel Kick.
