KUDO watched on from the ringside corner as his Shuten-dōji brothers fought HarashiMarufuji for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Last time, KUDO was accidentally knocked out and concussed by Naomichi Marufuji. This time Yukio Sakaguchi used KUDO’s Hell Guillotine in the corner in tribute to KUDO. However HARASHIMA was there to save his partner from defeat. Even the Right Knee Of God from Sakaguchi that has plagued HARASHIMA all month wasn’t enough to keep him down today. Marufuji cut off Masahiro Takanashi with a Thrust Kick and then the Shiranui for the finish. Marufuji had a brief confrontation with KUDO & Sakaguchi after the match but Shuten-dōji left the ring quietly. Marufuji took the microphone and then asked why nobody else has come out to challenge the champions? He began talking about bringing the tag titles to NOAH and then called for Konosuke Takeshita to come down to the ring. Takeshita did so with Akito by his side. Marufuji was surprised to see Akito. They once had a singles match together in Sportiva Entertainment back in 2012. Akito reminded him of the match and thanked him for it. Takeshita told Marufuji that today’s main event gave him goosebumps and now he definitely wants to take the tag title from him. Marufuji said he would have to look at his NOAH schedule but he & HARASHIMA will accept the challenge. They all agreed to have the match on 23rd November in Korakuen Hall. Marufuji was hesitant to confirm it but once he got the diary up on his phone and saw the date was empty he guaranteed he will be there. Akito promised Marufuji he will tweet “Tomorrow is the tag title match” to him the day before the show so he won’t forget.
The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles are active again and now belong to ALL OUT! The decision match saw Diego pin Daisuke Sasaki with the VHS to win his first serious championship in DDT. The win means a lot to Diego because it happened in Shin-Kiba 1st RING, the same venue where DDT held a goodbye show for him in May 2014. Diego then announced he will be returning home to Chile in December. He has only two months left in DDT but he promises to defend the 6-Man Tag Titles with ALL OUT until it’s time to leave. Sasaki attempted to ambush Diego but was foiled. Diego then picked up the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title and said he wants to win it from Sasaki and bring it with him to Chile! DAMNATION later blamed their defeat on their private LINE group. Sasaki and Shuji Ishikawa like using it but Mad Paulie wasn’t originally included and Tetsuya Endo isn’t on there much. That was the difference maker today.
Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda became jealous of Mike Bailey & MAO’s friendship. They tried to mimic their opponent’s double Asai Moonsault but failed and slipped off the ropes. Bailey & MAO did the move correctly and went on to win. Bailey afterwards said he will beat Tetsuya Endo on 23/11 and Taiji Ishimori at the Differ Cup on 28/11. MAO was sad the match was over. But he and Bailey will team again so look forward to it! MAO thinks maybe their team name can be Mike Inoue.
The rest of the show was all about the Danshoku Commandment series. Producer Danshoku Dino decided to pit a bunch of DDT wrestlers against each other in a series of 5 minute matches and reward them points based on the results. Dino would listen to suggestions and complaints from the wrestlers in the ring before deciding the match-ups. Makoto Oishi wanted a match that would improve his skills. As much as he enjoys singing and dancing for NωA he is also concerned about the unit’s poor win-loss record. Dino decided Oishi would face his NωA partner Shunma Katsumata because he wanted to see what would happen when two friends fought each other. Kouki Iwasaki requested a match against Dino. This was something he never wanted to ask for until he watched Dino’s matches from the P Playful Series. Dino declined and instead put him against Soma Takao. Kazuki Hirata wanted to pick on somebody younger than him so he asked for Nobuhiro Shimatani. Dino said no. A better idea would be to bring Hirata back to his roots and face Keisuke Ishii in a Monthly Young Communications reunion. Tetsuya Endo also wanted a match against Shimatani. Dino wouldn’t allow it because he was putting himself against Shimatani. This left Endo having to fight Toru Owashi in the final match. Three of the bouts lasted the full five minutes. Only Takao and Ishii were able to win their bouts in quick fashion. Oishi almost had Katsumata beaten with the Miracle Ecstasy. Dino had Shimatani trapped in the Strangle Hold P until the bell rang. Owashi asked Endo to shake his hand after their match but Endo gave him the middle finger. Later in the show Dino revealed the final scores. Ishii and Takao had 10 points, everybody who drew got 5 points and everybody who lost got 0 points. Somehow Mizuki Watase got 30 points and Yuki Ueno scored 84 points even though they weren’t part of the competition until now. Ueno was declared the winner.
