6. Spring Special In The Summer! Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match: Masashi Takeda defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Kazusada Higuchi and MAO when Takeda pinned MAO with the Reverse U-Crash from a Van onto a Chair (24:41).

Things got out of control in the main event. Before the 4 Way Match even started MAO got into a confrontation with Sanshiro Takagi at ringside. They were kept apart until part way through the match when Takagi got sick of MAO’s behaviour and gave him a Stunner at ringside. MAO was carried away but soon after the Shin-Kiba 1st RING shutter gates opened and MAO appeared with a van parked behind him. He got into the van, drove it into the venue and bumped it into Takagi! Masashi Takeda made the match more violent with chairs. He then stuck wooden skewers into Kazusada Higuchi’s head! Higuchi returned the favour by finding more skewers and sticking them on Takeda’s head. With the gates opened, the match moved outside where MAO took out fireworks and gave Higuchi an Anal Explosion. Higuchi recovered and threw MAO into a steel container Razor’s Edge style. Even Konosuke Takeshita got into the hardcore style by using chairs on his opponents and giving Higuchi a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a trash can. His most extreme moment came when he placed Higuchi on a table and climbed up a nearby scaffold. Takeshita dove off the scaffold and crushed Higuchi through the table! That would have been the end but Takeda stopped the count by throwing a chair at Takeshita’s head. MAO and Takeda fought their way onto the roof of the van. Takeda gave MAO a German Suplex onto the roof then to cap it all off, he dropped MAO onto a pile of chairs below with the Reverse U-Crash for the 3 count. Takeda returned to the ring and said the match was a fun warm up for a title defence he will have in FREEDOMS tomorrow. He also joked that he doesn’t know if DDT will bring him back because he accidentally broke one of the van mirrors during the match. In a backstage interview Takeshita suggested doing a sumo match against Higuchi sometime.

There was a lot of Right To Challenge Gauntlet movement on today’s show. Tetsuya Endo lost his Gauntlet to Akito in a 6-Man Tag Match. DAMNATION ambushed ALL OUT & Saki Akai at the start but Akito grabbed the win when he trapped Endo in a Samson Clutch. Endo might have an excuse for the defeat. He is confused by this new relationship between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka. Sasaki got annoyed by Endo’s questions and reminded him what their motto is. Endo answered “We never confrom, kiss ass or get married.” No! Sasaki called Endo stupid and said their motto is now “Big Love!” Sasaki announced he and Asuka will team up again on next week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”, this time without Endo. Then on 22nd July in Korakuen Hall, Sasaki and Asuka will confirm their Big Love together by having a singles match against each other.

HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda got along as a team and were able to beat Irie-gun. However Honda rejected HARASHIMA’s handshake after the match. Instead Honda pulled a bra out from his tights and held it up like it was a title belt. HARASHIMA lifted up his DDT Extreme Title belt in response.

In an attempt to provide as much of an authentic Lucha Libre experience for Ultimo Dragon’s return to DDT, the Timo Timo Timo Dragons requested their match against Shuten-dōji to be Best 2 out of 3 Falls with a 61 minute time limit. Ultimo Dragon himself stopped the unmasking antics from happening. When Hiratimo Dragon’s mask slipped off at the start of the match, Ultimo handed it to him and told him to put it back on. Yuki Iino then pinned Hiratimo with a Lariat to win the blue Right To Challenge Gauntlet. The Timo Dragons all unmasked and framed Yukio Sakaguchi for cheating but Ultimo stopped them again and gave everyone Middle Kicks as punishment. Ultimo then gave Hiratimo the Asai DDT and Sakaguchi pinned Hiratimo to win the 2nd and deciding fall. The result means Sakaguchi now gets Hiratimo’s remaining Gauntlet. After the match Ultimo Dragon ordered the other Dragons to unmask. They did so and revealed they were really Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi and Kazuki Hirata all this time. Fortunately for them, Ultimo saw the funny side and felt honored that these wrestlers tried to imitate him, except for Owashi. Ultimo forgives them and will allow them to continue their gimmick on one condition. They must pay him a rights fee. They already used the gimmick for around 30 matches so they also have to pay him for those 30 matches! The Timo Timo Timo Dragons agreed to end the gimmick and all go back to normal.

Nobody was happier to appear on today’s show than Isami Kodaka. He came here to impress Mari Yaguchi by winning the 3 Way Match and even protected her during the crazier moments of the main event. He couldn’t stop thanking Sanshiro Takagi after his match for the booking. Yukinori Matsui reminded Kodaka not to bring his private life into his public life. He then had to drag Kodaka away from ringside to get the show back on track.

The opening match was held under World Cup rules which meant the much talked about VAR system came into play. Makoto Oishi pinned Kota Umeda with a Low Blow that Matsui missed. Keisuke Ishii’s protests led to Matsui getting the order to check on VAR to see what happened. The decision was made that Oishi fouled Umeda so the match was restarted. Oishi’s complaints led to him getting a yellow card for disruptive behaviour. The foul also meant that Umeda was given a free Penalty Kick to Oishi. VAR was used again when Danshoku Dieno gave Ishii a Low Blow before pinning him with the Gaydo Clutch. Matsui ruled that Dieno fouled Ishii so he too was booked. Umeda got the clean win over Oishi by making him submit to a Camel Clutch. Dieno demanded VAR to be used to reverse the decision. Matsui checked and ruled that there was no foul play so the result stands. Dieno complained but took it too far so Matsui gave him the red card and sent him off!

Ken Ohka’s ass kicking by Tenshin Nasukawa has been rescheduled for 24th July.

This Month’s Maji Manji Matches, Name Contra Name In BASARA, ALL OUT Joshi

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

6. Spring Special In The Summer! Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Kazusada Higuchi Vs MAO Vs Masashi Takeda

DDT is mixing up some ideas for this month’s “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” episodes. First up they are bringing in death match specialist Masashi Takeda to take part in a crazy Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match. Kazusada Higuchi’s involvement guarantees a broken table or two. MAO also gets a little out of control in these kind of matches too. Konosuke Takeshita is kind of the odd man out but this is the sort of variety he’s been looking to get into since losing the KO-D Openweight Title.

HARASHIMA has both of his upcoming major opponents involved in his match. He teams with Antonio Honda a week before their DDT Extreme Title match. On the opposing side, Shigehiro Irie is ramping up the pressure against his next intended challenger.

The Timo Timo Timo Dragons are hoping that Ultimo Dragon will want to team with them. The unmasking stuff isn’t going to fly with him.

As soon as Isami Kodaka found out that singer Mari Yaguchi was the special guest for this episode he asked to be a part of the show.

It’s DAMNATION versus DAMNATION in the dark match. Okay, not really. Maybe some day Nobuhiro Shimatani can get officially added to the group as a proper member instead of a gofer boy.

*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

ALL OUT are being put through an experiment to prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence against the Sendai Girls. They won’t be wrestling on 22nd July. Instead their cousins Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun will come in to take on another set of DDT cousins in a match they will probably get away with calling a “joshi” bout.

The “DAMNATION DIVA” Asuka and “The Vengeful One” Alex Ace will be on the show. Ace is a 31 year old Spanish wrestler originally trained by Joe E. Legend and now learning his trade from Angelico. He is 209cm high and weighs 115kg.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #12”, 24/07/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Jun Kasai & Daisuke Sasaki
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Meiko Satomura, DASH Chisako & Cassandra Miyagi

This isn’t going to be a friendly day out between ALL OUT and Sendai Girls. Meiko Satomura made it clear that ALL OUT are now enemies in her eyes. ALL OUT’s plan to defend the titles against outsiders may end at the starting blocks if they don’t take this match seriously.

The last couple of times Daisuke Sasaki and Jun Kasai were in the ring together they were rivals. Now they have to be on the same page to fight Irie-gun.


BASARA “VAJRA 61 ~SEISHUN SUIKODEN~” Results

March 3, 2018

BASARA “VAJRA 61 ~SEISHUN SUIKODEN~”, 03/03/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

6. BASARA Three Major Single Match: Manabu Hara defeated Ryota Nakatsu by TKO with an Armlock Chicken Wing (13:04).
7. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Single Match: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Tsutomu Oosugi with the Isamuashi Zan (18:20).
*V4 for Isami Kodaka.

Tsutomu Oosugi did what was asked of him and wrestled in his regular outfit for the main event. He was accompanied by Daichi Kazato but Kazato disappeared after he was hit by a Suicide Dive from Isami Kodaka. Oosugi did as good as he could given his lack of singles experience but Kodaka came out on top to keep the Union MAX Title. Kodaka’s victory speech was interrupted by Best Stretchman V3. Stretchman was deeply impressed by Oosugi’s effort but he was limited by his human body. Stretchman said it is time for a change and it should be left to him. He laughed, shook Kodaka’s hand and helped Oosugi exit the ring. Kodaka didn’t understand what was going on and was upset not to hear Oosugi speak.

Manabu Hara was too much for Ryota Nakatsu to handle. Nakatsu rolled into a Cross Armbar and Hara turned it into an Armlock Chicken Wing. Nakatsu wouldn’t give up but the referee stopped the match for his safety.

Fuminori Abe called his match with Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi his most difficult yet in BASARA. It was his first time getting into a style war with someone who wrestles very differently than he does. Abe describes Ryuichi’s aura as unique and delicious. The match felt like he was getting drunk somewhere in America. Ryuichi used the Perfect Plex to win because he misses Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

After the finish of the Hardcore Can Match, Masashi Takeda asked Yasu Urano to Body Slam him onto flat chair as a way to say thank you. Urano went along with the idea but fled the ring when Takeda wanted to do the same to him.

Yuji Hino got rid of Akiyori Takizawa with the Fuck’n Bomb while Ryuichi Sekine made Takato Nakano tap out to the Let’s Combine.

Court was in session when Hercules Senga called Sanshiro Takagi in to face accusations of fraud. Senga argued that Ippanjin Munenori Sawa should not be wrestling at Sumo Hall later this month because he is a salaryman and salarymen are forbidden from taking side jobs. Takagi was confident that he was in the right. Gouma Ryu even got the audience to applaud him when he said Sawa’s involvement on the show is what the fans wanted. Ryuichi Sekine was brought in as a witness but he was nervous and Takagi threatened him to stop talking. Both Ryu and Senga were offended by Takagi’s threats and they joined forces to fight him. Takagi gave both of them Stunners and pinned Senga to be declared innocent. Takagi said he won’t be paying any legal bills and left the ring.

The opening match included wrestlers from HEAT-UP and was used to promote their next show on 10th March. The ending had Daichi Kazato and Hiroshi Kondo combining their finishers to give Daiki Shimomura the Anna Cutter and Pyonkichi Splash at the same time.

6c. Yuko Miyamoto defeated Daisuke Sasaki with the Moonsault (29:43).
*Daisuke Sasaki fails in V9. Yuko Miyamoto becomes the 40th DDT Extreme Champion!

DAMNATION got to take over Korakuen Hall as their prize for winning the Dramatic General Election earlier this year. In the main event Daisuke Sasaki put his DDT Extreme Title on the line against Yuko Miyamoto in a 2 out of 3 falls Hardcore Match. In Fall #1, Sasaki submitted Miyamoto with La Mistica Cross Facelock after doing an Avalanche Power Bomb onto chairs. In Fall #2, Sasaki went high risk with a Diving Elbow onto a ladder. But Miyamoto moved out of the way and used several pinning moves on Sasaki until a Backslide got him the 3 count. Both men went all out in the final fall but Sasaki had a dirty trick up his sleeve. He invited Suguru Miyatake into the ring to hit Miyamoto with a guitar. Miyatake missed and hit Sasaki by accident instead! Despite that, Sasaki kicked out of the pin when Miyamoto hit the Fire Thunder through a table followed by the Moonsault. He hit back with the Pedigree onto chairs and a Diving Elbow but Miyamoto kicked out of that too. Miyamoto kicked out of the flash Hurricanrana and dropped Sasaki with a Tombstone. That seemed to take all that was left away from Sasaki because he could not counter the Springboard Overhead Kick or the Fire Thunder afterwards. One more Moonsault from Miyamoto sealed the deal and we now have a new Extreme Champion! Miyamoto told “Dai-chan” after the match that it was fun but he now proved he was the most Extreme wrestler. What’s extreme to other people is normal to him. He has plenty of Extreme left in him for DDT.

When he left the other DAMNATION wrestlers checked on Sasaki. Tetsuya Endo said that in a short period of time, Sasaki lost the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title and the DDT Extreme Title. He also failed to win the KO-D Tag Team Title. What if Sasaki no longer deserves to be called Charisma? Sasaki agreed. Shuji Ishikawa tried to cheer Sasaki up by telling him to continue working hard. He then sang the SMAP song “The Only Flower In The World”. Sasaki told him to stop. He lost everything going into 2018 but he is still Charisma! In fact, in 2018 Sasaki will become a brand new Charisma!

One week before the D-King Grand Prix begins and Tetsuya Endo is already making a statement by beating Konosuke Takeshita! The result happened when Takeshita’s partner Masato Tanaka went for the Sliding D on Endo as the target. Endo moved out of the way and Takeshita took the blow instead. Masashi Takeda got rid of Tanaka and Endo hit the Shooting Star Press for the three count. Takeshita and Endo will face off one on one in the Grand Prix on 7th January. Endo gained a lot of confidence with this result. He also hopes to wrestle Tanaka one on one someday.

The Violent Giants Vs Brahman Brothers match was interrupted by Dick Togo being chased into the ring by Colt Cabana. Togo was the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion at the time. He crawled underneath Suwama when Suwama was about to give one of the Brahmans the Last Ride. But Cabana caught up to Togo and pinned him to become the new champion. Back to the match and the Brahmans pulled out their usual tricks like Brahman Shu spitting black ink into Suwama’s face. Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama fired back with a Sandwich Lariat. Suwama then grabbed the bottle of black ink and spat it back at the Brahmans. He then pinned Brahman Kei with the Last Ride.

Mad Paulie’s two partners for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match were Ryota Hama & Nobuhiro Shimatani both wearing Paulie facepaint. They came close to winning but Paulie & Hama were wiped out with dives. Yukio Sakaguchi then kicked lumps out of Shimatani until he got the three count. Masahiro Takanashi said that the original Paulie and the chubby Paulie were a strong team but the third Paulie was stupid.

Dick Togo’s mystery partner was his student Diego… No wait, it was Guanchulo! Meanwhile Colt Cabana wore identical gear to Antonio Honda. Honda stopped the match so he could talk about Star Wars, specifically Chewbacca. Togo assisted Guanchulo with a Sunset Flip to win the match then Togo rolled up Guanchulo to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Togo was chased out of the ring by the other wrestlers afterwards.

Everybody in the Battle Royal wrestled in another wrestler’s costume. Yuki Ueno was dressed as Soma Takao. Man Man Kai Kind was dressed as Yuki Ueno. Soma Takao was dressed as Man Man Kai Kind. Saki Akai was dressed as Ken Ohka. HARASHIMA was dressed as Gota Ihashi. Ken Ohka was dressed as HARASHIMA. Takayuki Ueki was dressed as Saki Akai. Ryuichi Sekine was dressed as Stone Cold Steve Austin. Ueki still acted as himself and pulled out a gun to intimidate HARASHIMA. However Ueki then slipped off the top rope and crotched himself, leading to HARASHIMA to win the match with the Somato.

Suguru Miyatake sang a song called “Golden Lion” to the audience before the show began. He couldn’t remember the words so he had the lyric sheet taped to the back of his guitar.

7. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) with the Isamuashi Zan (16:35).
*Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi fails in V4. Isami Kodaka becomes the 9th Union MAX Champion!

15 years isn’t slowing down Isami Kodaka one bit. He regained the Union MAX Championship on his very own 15th Anniversary show! Kodaka’s cry from the main event’s video package was “Enjoy Wrestling!” while the defending champion Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted back with “Freedom!” The video also featured comments from Ryuichi Kawakami who has been constantly compared to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for some reason. In a reverse of roles, it was Ryuichi who offered a handshake at the start only for Kodaka to kick his hand away. Kodaka later asked for a handshake but Ryuichi turned him down and shouted “Wooooo!” Kodaka kicked out of the Perfect Plex and fought his way out of the Perfect Five. An Exploder Suplex took Ryuichi out of his game and a bunch of Buzzsaw Kicks and Isamuashi Zan kicks won the match for Kodaka. The new champion said Ryuichi fought like a cyborg. He then asked him to send his thanks to Kawakami. Kodaka thinks Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and Ryuichi Kawakami should combine to form the Perfect Soldier. Ryuichi’s response in broken English was “Thank you so much!” Kodaka then talked about his own career. It can go another 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years. Kodaka wants to be like The Great Kojika who is still wrestling at 75 years old. However, Kodaka is also dedicated to BASARA. If BASARA ever goes away then that means retirement for Kodaka! He will never let that happen.

HUB got into the IRON PRIEST spirit by rocking out on air guitar with FUMA and Yusuke Kubo for their entrance. FUMA even used HUB’s stinger as a guitar while they were beating on Yasu Urano. Kubo & HUB wiped out Urano & Yuji Hino with dives but the party ended when Ryuichi Sekine countered FUMA’s Reverse Power Slam and rolled it into the Let’s Combine submission. When FUMA tapped out, Urano rushed over to hug Sekine. In the backstage interview, Sekine pointed out that he never touched HUB at all during the match because he hates snakes. He also heard all of his large sized shirts and higher sold out at the merch table. None of the smaller shirts sold which annoyed him because it meant no women were buying them, only men.

In the battle of current gen yankee versus new gen yankee, Yuko Miyamoto defeated Ryota Nakatsu. Miyamoto was put in danger many times by Nakatsu’s submissions, most notably when the Fire Thunder was countered into a Cross Armbreaker. Miyamoto eventually hit the move but Nakatsu fought through the pain to get back up to his feet. However, Nakatsu was knocked down again with a Lariat and put away with the Moonsault. Miyamoto was surprised to discover that BASARA had a wrestler so focused to target his right arm like Nakatsu did. He thinks it is possible for Nakatsu to grow into a great wrestler.

If it was made out of steel, it was allowed to be used in the Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match. Takumi Tsukamoto gathered around some of his friends from Big Japan to battle the Dove Pro team and their heavy bass music that played throughout the match. A steel box was smashed over everyone’s heads a lot. Gunso grabbed a shard of metal and dug it into Tsukamoto’s forehead to make him bleed. Kabuki Kid then created a pile of chairs for Tsukamoto to be slammed onto. However Tsukamoto got some revenge on Kid with a Fisherman Buster. Jaki Numazawa fended off the Dove wrestlers by throwing chairs at them. Masashi Takeda also used the steel box to keep the Dove wrestlers away while Tsukamoto and Gunso fought to the end inside the ring. Tsukamoto Suplexed Gunso from a ladder onto a pile of metal objects below. He then hit the Zudon for the three count, making B FAULTLESS JUNKY’S the winners. Even though a winner was declared, both sides hinted that the conflict between them isn’t over yet. Tsukamoto wasn’t satisfied with the victory.

SAGAT had the impossible task of facing Daisuke Sekimoto one on one. Even with the hard work and crowd behind him, SAGAT fell to the Deadlift German Suplex. Sekimoto gently bowed to SAGAT after the match and left the ring. SAGAT was offered help by Takato Nakano to be taken out of the ring but SAGAT refused and left under his own power. SAGAT said it was impossible for him to beat Sekimoto this year. It will be impossible for him to beat Sekimoto next year. But some year, SAGAT will beat him! Doesn’t matter if it is so long in the future that Sekimoto will be a grandfather when it happens. It will happen!

The recent sale of DDT and all of its franchises has left Gouma Ryu feeling worried. The entire company is a legitimate business now and there is so much that has to change as a result. Ryu can no longer tolerate sneak attacks because it is illegal. He also wants wrestlers to be careful with their kicks because they can cause injuries. Mineo Fujita cut him off with a sneak attack Dropkick to start their tag match. Ryu tried to strike Fujita with his lawbook but Fujita stopped him with a Shining Wizard. Fujita picked up the lawbook but was told by the referee to get rid of it. Fujita dropped the book onto Ryu’s stomach by accident then pinned him with the Swanton Bomb.

Fuminori Abe channeled the abilities of Munenori Sawa to trap Takato Nakano in an Octopus Hold the same way Sawa did. Masamune kept Shiori Asahi at bay to stop the move from being broken.

IRON PRIEST stole Cavalry’s stick horses at the last BASARA show and brought them out before the main event to taunt their opponents. However Cavalry got one up on them with a surprise ambush to start the elimination match. IRON PRIEST scored the first elimination when Madoka pulled Koji Iwamoto over the ropes and knocking him off the apron. Jaki Numazawa tried to get rid of Masashi Takeda next but a reversal of fortunes led to Numazawa getting knocked out of the ring. Takeda then eliminated both Yusuke Kubo and himself with a Spear on the apron. Cavalry took the lead when FUMA accidentally hit Madoka with a High Kick, leading to his elimination. But a mistaken clash of partners happened to Cavalry too afterwards. Ryota Nakatsu hit Ryuichi Sekine and FUMA capitalized. That left FUMA and Sekine as the final two and FUMA got the only pinfall of the match to win it for IRON PRIEST. FUMA said IRON PRIEST has been the best unit in BASARA’s eight months of existence. To prove this he wants to hold a tag team tournament called the Iron Fist Tag League. However he said this while still wearing his mask so most of the audience just heard muffled yelling. FUMA also wants “Iron Fist” by Motorhead to be the league’s official theme song. Isami Kodaka suggested it should be a playoff instead of a league because they have no time to do another round robin tournament this year.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi brought in a new tag partner from America, Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. However Atsushi Maruyama was convinced it was really Big Japan wrestler Ryuichi Kawakami pretending to be American. Ryuichi denied the accusation and got the fans to chant “Let’s go Trans-Am!” as he wrestled. Hi69 stopped Hiroshi from doing the Perfect Plex by hitting him with a chair. He and Maruyama then put their opponents in Sleeper Holds until “USA” chants woke them up. Team Trans-Am turned the tables and Hiroshi finally hit the Perfect Plex on Maruyama for the win.

The alliance between Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT is getting a little strained. Tsukamoto beat him in a Hardcore Match but offered to shake hands afterwards. SAGAT ignored it and headed directly to the exit.

Tomoya Kawamura had his first match in BASARA a day after his final match in DNA. The Rainbow Kawamura gimmick is now gone, Kawamura has reverted back to his previous self from before the injury. However he still put disinfectant on his hands before the match. Kawamura came close to winning with a Michinoku Driver II and Swanton Bomb but Kodaka fired back with the Zeyyari for the victory. Kodaka said his opponent was unexpectedly strong after watching video of his match from yesterday. He then welcomed Kawamura to BASARA.

The brackets for the 2nd Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai were revealed at the beginning of the show. The tournament takes place at Kodaka’s self-produced show on 28th September. The four first round matches are Shiori Asahi Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino, FUMA Vs Kengo Mashimo, Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sekimoto and Isami Kodaka Vs Brahman Kei (w/ Brahman Shu). Manami Toyota and a mystery wrestler were given byes into the second round.

4. Hardcore 6-Man Tag Team Match: Shuji Ishikawa, Mad Paulie & Tetsuya Endo defeated Masashi Takeda, Kazusada Higuchi & Choun-Shiryu when Endo pinned Shiryu with the Sky Twister Press (20:12).

Daisuke Sasaki wasted no time when it came to getting drinks during the DAMNATION part of Beer Garden week. It seemed that he had a cup of beer with him every time he appeared in the ring. But there was no time for nonsense in the main event. DAMNATION wasn’t taking things easy because they put themselves in a 6-Man Hardcore Tag Team Match. Their opponents Masashi Takeda, Kazusada Higuchi & Choun-Shiryu brought out a ladder, a table and a wok to use as weapons. DAMNATION were armed with bamboo swords. Tetsuya Endo hit a No Touch Tope that led to a brawl around ringside. Shiryu responded by climbing the ladder and delivering a Flying Kung Fu Kick to Endo. Takeda then Body Slammed Endo onto the ladder back in the ring. Further damage was given to Endo after a Diving Senton from Takeda and a Diving Single Foot Stomp from Shiryu off the ladder. However Endo survived the onslaught and put down Shiryu with the Torture Rack Bomb. The Sky Twister Press afterwards won the match for DAMNATION. Endo told everyone that Takeda’s birthday was tomorrow so he wished him a happy birthday. Takeda thanked him and said the match was so much fun. Sasaki then went on a rant saying he is sick of all the marriage proposals that are happening in Beer Garden this year. They don’t care about marriage, they’re too busy making he entire world revolve around DAMNATION!

One person in the Blindfold Bra match had an advantage over everyone else. Yoshiko was the only wrestler wearing their bra underneath their wrestling gear. Her three male opponents normally wrestle topless so their bras were all vulnerable from being stripped. It took around fifteen minutes but Yoshiko was able to strip the bras off all of her opponents to win. Antonio Honda thought he had his hand on her but it was actually Daisuke Kiso. When he pulled off Kiso’s shirt it was revealed Kiso was wearing a bra underneath.

Shuji Ishikawa has to lose some water weight for his KO-D Openweight Title Match in Sumo Hall. So he was put in a match made specifically to make him sweat. His opponent Nobuhiro Shimatani came up with a secret plan to help him sweat. He bribed Mad Paulie with a frankfurter and also Daisuke Kiso with a baseball card of Takahiro Arai from the Hiroshima Toyo Carp to be on his side. Together they were able to put force a heavy jacket onto Ishikawa to make him sweat. Paulie also found a blanket and woolly hat to put on Ishikawa. Gota Ihashi then found a bottle of lotion and poured it over Ishikawa to heat him up even more. Unfortunately that made the ring canvas too slippery to stand on and the match had to be called off.

Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi fought in a rounds match where both of them had to drink a cup of beer after every round. Each round was only 30 seconds long. In the little time they had between drinking they did try to wrestle but in the end the round limit was reached and a draw was called. Both Sasaki and Takanashi cried and went to hug each other. Sasaki then Low Blowed Takanashi. Takanashi Low Blowed Sasaki in return.
