October 13, 2019

DDT “FROM THE DRAMATIC NEW WORLD! 2019”, 13/10/2019
Osaka World Hall
208 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yuni Trial 3 Way Match: Asuka defeated Makoto Oishi and Yuni when Asuka pinned Oishi with the Swinging Choke Slam (6:30).
2. Cody Hall & Antonio Honda defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani & Yukio Naya when Hall pinned Naya with the Thunder Buster (9:14).
3. Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Yukio Sakaguchi, Toru Owashi & Mizuki Watase when Endo submitted Watase with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (13:08).
4. Yuki Iino Marunage Match: Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto defeated Hiroshi Yamato & Yuki Iino when Hirata pinned Iino with a Cradle (12:20).
5. Daisuke Sasaki defeated Akito with the Vietnam Driver II (13:35).
6. Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Masahiro Takanashi & MAO when Ueno pinned MAO with a Samson Clutch (13:34).
7. I Really Like It! Osaka Specialty Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated HARASHIMA & Billy Ken Kid by TKO when Takeshita used the Walls Of Takeshita on HARASHIMA (23:03).

Late in the main event Konosuke Takeshita delivered a lot of damage to HARASHIMA’s back with a Backbreaker. From there Takeshita applied the Walls Of Takeshita to his opponent. HARASHIMA struggled to reach towards the ropes but Takeshita dragged him back to the centre of the ring. HARASHIMA would not give up despite his helpless position. Toru Owashi took Yuki Ueno’s shirt and threw it into the ring like a towel so the match would be called off. Takeshita wanted HARASHIMA to submit so he asked who threw the shirt in. He also asked if HARASHIMA would accept his defeat today. If he isn’t giving up then they will fight again next week in Ryogoku KFC Hall. Owashi told Takeshita that he was the one who threw the shirt into the ring and now he will be the one teaming with HARASHIMA in KFC Hall.

The Nautilus team of Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are building up momentum for their KO-D Tag Team Titles No. 1 Contenders match on 27th October. They feel that their team has gotten better since their failed attempt at winning the titles back in June.

A lot of cheating and interference got Daisuke Sasaki the win over Akito. There were Low Blows, chair usage, referee distractions and attacks from both Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani. After the match Sasaki said what just happened is why he does not care that the 4-Way Tag Match for the KO-D Tag Titles in Sumo Hall is also a Hardcore Match. It means DAMNATION can use chairs and have their other members interfere with no penalty!

The Hiroshi Yamato & Yuki Iino Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto match was as lewd as you could imagine. The wrestlers had to kiss each other to make a tag. Everyone was also eventually reduced to wrestling in their underwear. Yukinori Matsui got fed up when the shenanigans continues after the match. He hit Hirata with a Lariat and chased everyone else out of the ring.


Injury Updates, Survival 3 Way, Iino Back In The Fold

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP 2019”, 29/09/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Akito & Yuki Iino
7. DDT Extreme Title – Survival 3 Way Match: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo

The main event is now an elimination 3 Way Match. Jiro Kuroshio decided this because he wants to beat both HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in the one match. Also he wants to cherish his time wrestling in Japan before he relocates to America next year. That’s why he did not choose a stipulation that allows weapon usage. HARASHIMA has experience wrestling in such a match, winning one in a Sumo Hall main event back in 2014. Endo thinks HARASHIMA is deteriorating as proved by his recent wins over him including a direct pinfall. Endo also says he will move to America next year so he can go back home to New York. When he was corrected about his hometown really being Shiraishi City in Miyagi, he dismisses it with “That’s not America” as his response.

The power of rugby has given Yuki Iino a massive boost in confidence while Daisuke Sasaki is trying to figure out if he likes or hates the sport. Iino pinned Sasaki at yesterday’s show in Fukushima in a match featuring rugby tackles from both of them. Sasaki refuses to accept the result but also can’t handle being unable to tackle Iino effectively.

Yuki Ueno injured his left foot during the Campsite Pro Wrestling match last week. He already missed the past weekend’s shows but has been given the all clear to return at Korakuen Hall.

A note was found in the DDT office written by Saki Akai’s demon relative Saki. She may show up again soon but the complete card for Korakuen has already been decided without her.

DDT “LEGEND THE DDT PRO WRESTLING”, 12/10/2019
Aichi Nagoya Legend Hall

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani Marunage Match ~ Drop Kick Bar One Day Store Manager 3 Way Match: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Akito Vs Asuka

Nobuhiro Shimatani wants to challenge Akito over the management rights to the Drop Kick Bar. If Shimatani wins he gets to run the bar for a day and he promises to make it DAMNATION themed. Akito is already the Drop Kick manager so nothing changes if he wins. Asuka is in the match because Shimatani would rather work for her than Akito.

DDT “FROM THE DRAMATIC NEW WORLD! 2019”, 13/10/2019
Osaka World Hall

1. Yuki Iino Marunage Match: Hiroshi Yamato & Yuki Iino Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto

Iino and Hiroshi Yamato went to nearby colleges so maybe they can work as a team. Iino also likes reading the kind of kinky stories that Yamato writes in his spare time. Now that filming for No Side Game has ended, Iino no longer has to hide his kinky side in public. He promises Osaka will get a kinky match! And who is kinkier than Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto!

5. O-40 Title – Recycling Death Match: Sanshiro Takagi (c) defeated Ken Ohka with the Himawari Bomb onto a plastic case (12:40).
*V1 for Sanshiro Takagi.
6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Ishikawa pinned Yoshimura with the Fire Thunder (17:08).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) defeated Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted Kuroshio with the Crossover Face Lock (17:22).
*V6 for DAMNATION.
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Shinya Aoki by TKO with the Walls Of Takeshita (16:45).
*V2 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Just like in their last singles match, Konosuke Takeshita decided to wrestle barefoot against Shinya Aoki. Takeshita went for the Walls Of Takeshita but Aoki positioned himself into a Triangle Choke. Takeshita powered out of the move by lifting up and slamming down Aoki. He then reapplied the Walls Of Takeshita and kept the pressure until Aoki went unresponsive. Yukinori Matsui stopped the match and declared Takeshita the winner.

Takeshita expressed his sincere gratitude to Aoki after the match. He was then told that the next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be at Sumo Hall on 3rd November. No challenger was decided yet so Takeshita had an idea. Since “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is bringing together all of the DDT brands, he wants to find out who the absolute best wrestler in DDT is. That means the KO-D Champion and the DDT Extreme Champion should face off in a double title match! Hisaya Imabayashi reminded him that the current Extreme Champion Jiro Kuroshio is defending the title against HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in a 3 Way Match on 29th September. They confirmed that the winner and champion coming out of that match will face Takeshita in Sumo Hall.

Sadly for Kuroshio he didn’t add the KO-D Tag Team Titles to his possessions. He and his “brother” Kazusada Higuchi were defeated by DAMNATION. Higuchi got rid of Soma Takao and left Ikemen to seal the deal. Kuroshio blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s La Mistica Cross Facelock and turned it into a Tombstone Piledriver. However Ikemen’s Moonsault ended badly when Sasaki caught him and applied the Crossover Face Lock for the submission win. Akito came out and challenged DAMNATION for the Tag Titles on 29th September. His partner is the “TV Star” Yuki Iino! He has been away from wrestling the last few months working on a TV drama called No Side Game.

Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are now called Nautilus. The team impressed Shuji Ishikawa, he called them amazing talents. He also likes tagging with Tetsuya Endo and suggested the idea of the two of them facing off against Sasaki & Takao sometime.

The Recycling Death Match featured plenty of items from DDT’s history. A lot of it was trash left around in storage but some of the items do have some history to them. There was the dojo’s vacuum cleaner from 2015, an office heater from 2016, plastic cases from this year, the bear traps from the 2018 Super Sasadango Machine Vs Jiro Kuroshio match, 200 empty beer cans that they never threw out after one of this year’s earlier Beer Garden shows, Mecha Mummy’s weapons from 2006 and finally a big electric signboard T that was part of a stage prop from DDT’s first ever Sumo Hall show back in 2009. The last one still works. Sanshiro Takagi threw Ken Ohka onto the T with the Spicolli Driver then pinned him with the Himawari Bomb through a plastic case. Takagi and Ohka agreed to repair the T and use it at next year’s Saitama Super Arena show.

The pairing of Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto acted exactly how we thought they would. They got their hands all over Akito & Shunma Katsumata until Yukinori Matsui called off the match.

MAO brought along the two glass globes he has earned so far from the Tenkaichi Jr. tournament in ZERO1. He and HARASHIMA defeated Jun Masaoka & Kouhei Kinoshita. HARASHIMA commiserated his opponents afterwards.

Yuni was able to pin Puma King with a Hurricanrana because all of the other wrestlers in the Battle Royal piled on top of them. Yuni was declared the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion but Kazuki Hirata quickly pinned him with the Egoist Driver to win the belt. Saki Akai won it next then Asuka pinned her with the ASUKA FANTASY to win both the title and the Battle Royal itself. Hirata got the belt back after the match with a School Boy then Puma King got the last title switch with the Puma Kingdom.

The debuting Cody Hall showed his strength by throwing around Yukio Sakaguchi, Lariating Yukio Naya and pinning Mizuki Watase with the Thunder Buster.

A few of the unit members have put together a match between themselves in order to get FUMA & Kubo on the same page again.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION MEMORIES 2019”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Yukio Naya Vs Mizuki Watase & Naomi Yoshimura

8. DDT Extreme Title: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki was so drunk by the end of Beer Garden week that he has no memory of how he got a DDT Extreme Title match with Jiro Kuroshio. He remembers eating watermelon and also Kuroshio’s wonderful hair but that’s it. Kuroshio says this is a match that nobody should laugh at. In fact Kuroshio Vs Sasaki is a match he thinks fans want to see. He also didn’t know that he gets to make the stipulation. So he hasn’t thought of one yet but promises it will be something serious.

So Konosuke Takeshita’s summer challenge before Shinya Aoki is an 8-Man Tag with Santino Marella involved. Didn’t see that coming.

DDT “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2019”, 01/09/2019
Osaka Edion Arena #2

1. DD Army Vs ALL OUT!: Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata
2. O-40 Title: Sanshiro Takagi (c) Vs Ken Ohka
3. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Kuroshio is acting like he is Kazusada Higuchi’s little brother so they can challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Higuchi is happy to go along with it and promises to win the belt for their family. They’re not related by blood but if they win then it is proof that they are real brothers. If they do become the champions Kuroshio wants to defend the belts against The Brahman Brothers. In response to this, Sasaki is making fun of the situation by saying he is Higuchi’s dad. Higuchi points out that Sasaki is only three years older than him. Sasaki fired back by saying he was only three years old when he was with Higuchi’s mother. Sasaki was still drunk when he said this but how much of that is an excuse, I don’t know. Kuroshio made the argument even more confusing by saying his and Kazusada’s father is a 56 year old man named Jiro Higuchi.

Yay, Shuji Ishikawa is back again!

Who’s idea was it to team up Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto!?!


DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TANABATA~” Results

July 7, 2019

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TANABATA~”, 07/07/2019
Osaka Hirano Community Hall
247 Fans – No Vacancy

0. Exhibition Match: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Camel Clutch (5:07).
1. MAO & Mike Bailey defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Makoto Oishi when MAO pinned Oishi after the Michinoku Tornado Driver (9:42).

2a. Rematch: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Yuni defeated Kazuki Hirata, Masahiro Takanashi & Antonio Honda when Yuni pinned Hirata with an Inverted Hurricanrana (8:40).
3. Osaka Specialty! Eat Away 4 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Hiroshi Yamato, Maku Donaruto and Mizuki Watase when Takao pinned Watase with the Gin And Tonic (8:51).
4. DDT Megaton Class One Match: Mad Paulie defeated Yukio Naya with the Reverse Splash (8:30).
5. 2 Count Fall Match: Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Asuka & Kazusada Higuchi when Akito pinned Asuka with a Cradle (9:22).
6. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes when Sasaki pinned HARASHIMA with the Sasaki Hurricanrana (13:26).
7. Yuki Ueno Marunage Match ~BRAND NEW TOMORROW~ Classmate Farewell Tag Match: Yuki Ueno & Kota Umeda defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Ueno pinned Shimatani with the Frog Splash (21:28).

Every wrestler in the main event was born in the fiscal year of 1995. A lottery determined the two teams, Konosuke Takeshita & Nobuhiro Shimatani on one and Yuki Ueno & Kota Umeda on the other. While Takeshita and Umeda fought outside the ring, Shimatani almost beat Ueno with a Fisherman Suplex. But Ueno fought back with a Wrist Clutch Suplex and won with the Frog Splash. Ueno thanked the others for taking care of him when he entered DDT through the DNA brand. Both he and Takeshita joked about feeling lonely once Umeda leaves wrestling. Shimatani said today will be an unforgettable day for him. However the good feeling was disturbed at the end when Umeda slapped away Takeshita’s offer of a handshake.

DAMNATION’s cheating got them the win over HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes. When the referee was distracted by Tetsuya Endo, Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at HARASHIMA, kicked him between the legs and hit the Sasaki Hurricanrana to get the pin. HARASHIMA came out of the match thinking he needs to be more cautious at the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Brookes respects HARASHIMA too much to blame him for today’s tag loss, unlike yesterday’s tag loss that was totally Takeshita’s fault if Brookes is to be believed.

Akito asked for his tag match against Asuka to be turned into a 2 Count match to make the bout more interesting. The rule was agreed to and Akito was able to pin Asuka after blocking the Moonsault Pin with his feet. Asuka admitted the match idea was really fun and she went to shake Akito’s hand. Instead Asuka spate in Akito’s face and struck him with a right hand. When she left the ring Akito said he will make Asuka cry with the IPPON Fluorescent Lighttube Death Match.

Yukio Naya isn’t going to let today’s loss to Mad Paulie keep him down. He is already moving his attention over to his match with Hideki Suzuki on 15th July. He isn’t guaranteeing a win or even a good performance against Suzuki. But Naya really wants to hit him with everything he’s got.

In the 4 Way Match Maku Donaruto was too busy kissing Hiroshi Yamato to stop Soma Takao from beating Mizuki Watase.

It turns out Kazuki Hirata’s truce with and Yuni was a ruse all along. Minutes into the match Hirata turned on Yuni, joining forces with Masahiro Takanashi & Antonio Honda to surround the youngster. The match was called off then restarted with new teams. Honda tried to summon Gongitsune but was too weak. He called upon the other wrestlers to combine all of their Gongitsune hands together. This also led to some of the ringside reporters getting involved. Together the group charged at Yuni but missed and hit Hirata instead. Yuni then pinned Hirata with an Inverted Hurricanrana.

When the match was over Hirata began complaining about the punishment he received yesterday for losing his match. He refuses to hitchhike to Hiroshima next month. Sanshiro Takagi came in and changed the subject. He brought up how around a year ago Kazuko Hirata won the rights to produce a T2HiJoshi show. Hirata said the idea can still happen but T2Hide doesn’t exist anymore. How about giving the Beer Garden week a DISASTER BOX Joshi Day instead! He asked HARASHIMA for permission and HARASHIMA agreed. After all, there will be a lot of “distant relatives” coming to see DISASTER BOX anyway.

8. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) defeated Yukio Sakaguchi with the Shooting Star Press (14:31).
*V3 for Tetsuya Endo.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s roaring rampage of revenge has been stopped dead by Tetsuya Endo. The only times Sakaguchi was able to put Endo in a Sleeper Hold was once over the ropes and a second time quickly afterwards. Endo made his opponent even more angry when he hit a Low Kick to Sakaguchi’s back. Sakaguchi responded in kind. It took a combination of a Sit Down Power Bomb, the Swinging Torture Rack Bomb and a Handspring Leg Lariat to put Sakaguchi in danger. Endo then finished him off with the Shooting Star Press.

The “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July is now set. Endo will be defending the KO-D Openweight Title against his biggest enemy Konosuke Takeshita! That is unless Sanshiro Takagi cashes in the last remaining Right To Challenge Gauntlet and wins the belt before that. Takagi says he will cash in while Endo is in a perfect state. Takeshita is happy to wait a little bit and let those two fight over the title if it happens before “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. Endo called out Takeshita for being Takagi’s favourite and he promised to beat Takeshita inside Ota Ward Gymnasium.

It was a fair effort from Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto but not enough to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Donaruto’s lewd exploits kept DAMNATION off their game. Stripping down to a gold thong and diving onto people can do that to an opponent. He wiped out Daisuke Sasaki with a Quebrada while Hirata and Soma Takao fought over the Viagra Driver. Takao got the upper hand and pinned Hirata with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb. DAMNATION’s next title defence will be at “WRESTLE PETER PAN” but Sasaki said they will decide who they will fight and also where. DAMNATION wants to decide everything by their ways.

ALL OUT had the honour of teaming with Tatsumi Fujinami for a special 8-Man Tag against a diverse team lead by Yoshiaki Yatsu. It was the first time Takeshita and Fujinami were in the ring together since their singles match back in 2013. Takagi tried adding lucha libre to the match and Rising HAYATO stepped in to help however he could. Yukio Naya stepped up to both Fujinami and Takeshita but the experience level was far too high for him to overcome. Fujinami would put him in the Dragon Sleeper to get the submission victory.

HARASHIMA was in a thankful mood as always. He was thankful to Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura for their part in DISASTER BOX’s victory today. He is also thankful for the fans for coming to see today’s big show in Matsuyama.

It was expected that Ryutaro Watanabe would lose to Hideki Suzuki but he went down fighting. He fought out of Suzuki’s Double Arm Suplex but Suzuki kicked him repeatedly until the referee stopped the match. Suzuki’s advice for Watanabe is to never run away if he wants to keep wrestling.

Saki Akai declined to shake hands with Mina Shirakawa until after their match. Akai rolled away from a Casadora and hit a High Kick, setting up the match winning Quetzalcoatl.

There were a lot of Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes on this show. After the opening match Danshoku Dieno was chased into the ring by Hiroshi Yamato and Pulp Bonjin. Dieno fought them off but Nobuhiro Shimatani snuck in and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Then in the Battle Royal the belt went from Shimatani to Mad Paulie to Asuka to the eventual match winner Makoto Oishi. The governor of Ehime Tokihiro Nakamura entered the ring for a congratulatory photo with Oishi but that was interrupted by an attack by Asuka and Toru Owashi. Governor Nakamura then surprised everyone by jumping on top of Oishi to become the new champion! Dieno chased the governor away then later came back to the ring with the belt, informing everyone he had won the championship backstage. Oishi gave Dieno a Low Blow and pinned him. Then Owashi gave Oishi a Choke Slam for the final title change of the day.

Former Shuten-dōji members Masahiro Takanashi and Kota Umeda faced off as one of Umeda’s final matches before he leaves DDT next month. Takanashi went for a bunch of Cradles until Umeda dropped him with the Umeda Driver.
