5. PREMIUM GIG TOP OF THE NEXT: Kouki Iwasaki defeated MAO with a Verical Drop Brainbuster (9:53).
6. “THE RIVALS” Each Stand By Me: Shunma Katsumata & Kotaro Suzuki defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Mike Bailey when Katsumata pinned Higuchi with the Kasadora (16:32).

Shunma Katsumata got the surprise pin on Kazusada Higuchi, beating the big man for the first time in his career. Katsumata thanked Kotaro Suzuki for giving him the power in their singles match at “DNA EP.30” to beat Higuchi. He wants to make DNA more exciting by collaborating with Suzuki more in the future. But Higuchi is still in the way. Earlier in the show it was announced that Mike Bailey will main event the DNA Korakuen Hall show on 10th May. Higuchi wants to be Bailey’s opponent so he can avenge his defeat to from last year’s DNA Grand Prix final. Katsumata wants that spot too so he challenged Higuchi to a match on 21st April. The winner will face Bailey at Korakuen.

Kouki Iwasaki got the victory over MAO by rolling out of the way of the Cannonball 450. MAO kicked out of a Soccer Kick but the Vertical Drop Brainbuster afterwards had him beat. Iwasaki said afterwards that he will fight any big names that come to DNA. Suddenly Kazushi Sakuraba appeared. He said he likes to tease people and bully the younger wrestlers in the ring so he’s coming back to DNA on 21st April to bully Iwasaki again. The Gracie Hunter is now the DNA Hunter! He is also bringing somebody to team up with, Kendo Kashin! After the announcement a mystery man in a lion mask ran into the ring and sprayed Iwasaki in the eyes with the cold spray. He then saluted to Sakuraba and ran out of the ring.

Mizuki Watase and LEONA were at each other’s throats for most of the 6-Man Tag. They brawled up to the stage while Akebono took care of Naomi Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno inside the ring.

The YOUNG DONUTS were picked apart by Atsushi Aoki & Hikaru Sato. Guanchulo is happy just to be teaming with Rekka and show off YOUNG DONUTS to the world. In the backstage interview Sato pointed at the DNA logo. He doesn’t know what the D, N, A or GIG stand for but FIGHTING is at the beginning and that means everything to him. Don’t you forget it!

The first match in Dai Suzuki’s 7 bout series ended in failure. Kohei Sato was too scary for Suzuki to stand up to and he was clobbered in under 3 minutes. It’s only going to get worse because opponent #2 is Masato Tanaka!

The match to determine the team leader of Gran MilliMeters ended a bit rougher than intended. Nobuhiro Shimatani suffered a bloody nose after being hit with a Running Elbow Smash from Daiki Shimomura.

7. Shuten-dōji Vs DAMNATION: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Takatonic (13:49).

Masa Takanashi pins Daisuke Sasaki for the second time in a row. Yukio Sakaguchi set it up with the Right Knee Of God and Takanashi finished it with the Takatonic. Takanashi himself noticed this new trend is unusual for him. He wanted to act like beating Sasaki twice is no big deal be even he admits it is strange. Eh, whatever. Let’s drink!

A stipulation was added to MAO Vs Dick Togo. If MAO won then Togo would have to join NωA. But if Togo won then he would get to make a wish. He teased that he might wish to join NωA anyway. Before the match began, MAO was given 30kg of rice as a gift of encouragement from a local sponsor. During the match Togo pulled MAO out of the ring, pulled away a ring mat and Body Slammed MAO onto the exposed floor. Togo continued to control the match until MAO hit a No Touch Tope out of the ring. MAO later stopped Togo from doing the Senton Bomb by hitting an Avalanche Frankensteiner followed by the Screw Kick. Togo avoided the 450 Cannonball and took MAO back outside the ring so he could give him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the floor. Togo returned to the ring at the 19 count but was then hit with a Lariat. Togo won the match with the Pedigree and the Diving Senton. After the match Makoto Oishi came out with an exciting announcement for the future of NωA. He wants to introduced the newest member of NωA, the Wrestling Master turned Idol Master Dick Togo! Togo was taken aback but played along and asked Oishi if he was ready to help make his wish come true. Oishi said of course! Togo then gave Oishi the Pedigree. Wish granted.

Yoshihiro Takayama & Shigehiro Irie had a dominating victory over Smile Squash. They hit a Back Drop/Neckbreaker Drop combo to HARASHIMA to take him out of the match then Irie latched on the Tazzmission to Yasu Urano for the victory. Irie said after the match that he will become the KO-D Openweight Champion in two days time.

The show featured the DDT debut of Laura James, wife of Joey Ryan. Joey and Sanshiro Takagi wanted her debut to be a serious match so they both stopped Kazuki Hirata from dancing. Ryan then repeatedly shouted “This is serious!” while he traded holds with Takagi. Hirata got the message and tried not to do anything wacky when he was in the ring with Laura. That all went out the window when Joey started doing his crotch spots and Hirata convinced Laura to dance with him. Joey stopped the dancing by shoving a lollipop into Hirata’s mouth and then Super Kicking him. Laura then hit a Northern Lights Suplex to win her first DDT match.

1. Tokyo Joshi Pro Offer Match: Miyu Yamashita & Rika Tatsumi defeated Syoko Nakajima & Maho Kurone when Tatsumi submitted Kurone with the Dragon Sleeper (9:50).
2. NωA Vs DDT Ramen & Ebisuko Allies: Makoto Oishi & MAO defeated Akito & Gota Ihashi when MAO pinned Ihashi with the Never Give Up☆Guillotine Drop (10:01).

Bad weather did little to dampen NωA’s excitement for this outdoor show. They performed their second single “Going My Way!!! ~You Are Not Alone~” to a live audience for the first time. Shunma Katsumata wrote the lyrics, MAO composed the music and Makoto Oishi planned the choreography. When the performance was over Oishi & MAO took part in a Falls Count Anywhere match against Akito & Gota Ihashi. Before the match began Ihashi asked Oishi why was he acting like an idol when he is old enough to be MAO’s uncle? He then made up some new lyrics making fun of NωA. That sparked a fight that went into the crowd before returning to the mat area. MAO hit his leap frog Never Give Up☆Guillotine Drop on Ihashi for the three count. NωA ended the show with an encore of “Going My Way!!! ~You Are Not Alone~”.

A day before Rika Tatsumi challenges for the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title she scored a submission victory over the scary rookie Maho Kurone. Tatsumi appealed to the crowd to come see her win Tokyo Joshi Pro’s championship in Yokohama tomorrow.

Day 2 of the DNA Grand Prix was headlined by a match of power versus power. The American Royce Isaacs impressed in his Japanese debut yesterday but was stopped in his tracks by Kazusada Higuchi today. Both wrestlers kicked out of each other’s big moves, Isaacs from the Doctor Bomb and Higuchi from the Zenith. Isaacs lifted Higuchi onto the turnbuckles for an Avalanche move but Higuchi pushed him back and knocked him down with a Diving Lariat from the middle ropes. Higuchi then used the Goten to finish off his opponent. Higuchi said it was his Japanese spirit that made him win.

Ryota Nakatsu was accompanied by his Cavalry stablemates for his match with Daiki Shimomura. For the second match in a row Shimomura’s Asai DDT was avoided and that led to his defeat. Nakatsu got a nearfall with a Soccer Ball Kick but then immediately applied an Ankle Lock. Shimomura tried to escape until Nakatsu changed the move into a Camel Clutch for a successful submission. Sekine didn’t think anything of Shimomura except for calling him an ordinary guy.

Nakatsu’s main target in B Block is also two for two so far. Mike Bailey gave Mizuki Watase his first loss in the Grand Prix with a Screw Kick followed by the Shooting Star Double Knee Drop. Bailey has noticed the difficulty in his tournament matches is rising. He noticed Watase is using the experience he learned from wrestling Shinjiro Otani and Kengo Mashimo but he doesn’t yet have the physical strength to go with it. Out of the A Block wrestlers, Bailey would like to face Kouki Iwasaki, MAO and most of all, Kazusada Higuchi.

Guanchulo scored his first points over Nobuhiro Shimatani who is still stuck with zero. A Tornado DDT and Death Valley Bomb won it for Guanchulo. He was impressed with his opponent but now will focus on facing Bailey tomorrow. Bailey is a high flyer but Guanchulo thinks he is stronger. Why? Because he is Chilean!

Kouki Iwasaki got over his Day 1 defeat by tapping out Rekka. Iwasaki was more harsh in the ring than normal. He explained that he does not want to lose another match so he can beat Higuchi on the final day and advance to the final. That means no careless mistakes like the ones he did on Day 1.

MAO wasn’t taking any chances against Yuki Ueno. He had no intention of losing to anyone so he went full force even though his opponent was only having his second proper wrestling match.

Dai Suzuki was spotted doing warm ups in the ring with Suguru Miyatake before the show began. He hasn’t wrestled for DNA since March.

Day 1 of the DNA Grand Prix did not end happily for Guanchulo. He came out wearing a Shunma Katsumata t-shirt and even used his Double Stomp to try and beat Ryota Nakatsu. But a Head Kick, German Suplex and Cross Armbreaker put an end to any hope that the power of friendship would save the day. Nakatsu thinks Mike Bailey is the only one in his group that will give him a challenge.

MAO’s quick attack on Kouki Iwasaki to start their match gave him the edge. He hit the Alien Plancha then seated him on a chair for the John Woo Dropkick. Back in the ring Iwasaki tried to wear down MAO with an Anklelock but MAO rolled out of it and stunned him with a High Screw Kick. A modified Rock Bottom and the Cannonball 450 earned MAO his first two points. MAO is aware that his knee will be targeted by his opponents.

In his official debut match Yuki Ueno had the unenviable task of wrestling Kazusada Higuchi. Ueno at one point knocked Higuchi off his feet with a Dropkick and even put him in a Crab Hold. Higuchi fought back with the Oklahoma Stampede and Nodowa Otoshi for nearfalls. Ueno got a two count of his own with a Frog Splash but a Doctor Bomb from Higuchi ended the match afterwards. Higuchi described the match as him welcoming Ueno to DNA.

Mike Bailey avoided an Asai DDT en route to beating Daiki Shimomura. Bailey says the tournament running for 5 consecutive days is like running a marathon. He wants to continue running until the end.

For his first match in Japan, Royce Isaacs was too powerful for Rekka to handle. He countered a Triangle Choke into a Turnbuckle Bomb then followed with a German Suplex into a Rock Bottom. Isaacs said he didn’t come to DNA to make friends. He came to test his strength. He wants to compare his power with Higuchi’s power. Rekka felt like all of his ability and technique were useless against Isaacs.

Mizuki Watase opened up the tournament with a win over Nobuhiro Shimatani. He hit a big Back Drop for the three count. Watase knows that he has a long way to go this week. His priority is to avoid losing against Nakatsu.

Shunma Katsumata was in attendance to say he will return from injury at “DDT FES 2016” in November.
