7. If You Wrestle, Do Something Like This! Matsuyama Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when HARASHIMA pinned Paulie with the Somato (15:39).
*HARASHIMA wins Mad Paulie’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

The tide is turning in the HARASHIMA Vs DAMNATION feud and it’s given HARASHIMA a big prize in the process. He pinned Mad Paulie in the main event to win his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. HARASHIMA took Soma Takao’s version of the Somato during the match and said it works unexpectedly well. He admits it is a move he has to watch out for in the DDT Extreme Title 3 Way Match.

Almost one year on from their match for KO-D Openweight Title, Konosuke Takeshita and Mike Bailey were brought together for another round. Like last time Takeshita came out of it the winner. Takeshita said backstage that both he and Bailey have upgraded their abilities since their last match. He praised Bailey for getting used to the Japanese style and using that to improve himself.

Makoto Oishi foiled Takatimo Dragon’s unmasking technique by simply throwing the mask into the audience before Yukinori Matsui saw him with it. Takatimo then left to search for his mask Oishi and Danshoku Dieno then formed a Hell Gate tower in the corner. Hiratimo Dragon had his head shoved inbetween both of their backsides and got stuck. His mask slipped off when he was pulled out. Takatimo returned with his mask, handed it to Saki Akai and tricked Matsui into disqualifying her. After the match Takatimo asked the crowd if they wanted to see Hiratimo cash in one of his Right To Challenge Gauntlets. Hiratimo refused to do it. He said he would not be able to win after getting his head stuck between two smelly asses.

Former DDT trainee turned amateur MMA fighter Ryutaro Watanabe had his debut pro wrestling match against Tetsuya Endo. Although he didn’t win, Watanabe was pleased to finally go through with his debut. He remembers Endo from their training days. They got along back then but he thinks Endo is a different person now. Still, having Endo as your first opponent is a good starting point. Watanabe will stay where he is now but it open to wrestling more whenever shows will be held in his region.

ALL OUT’s momentum against the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions was halted when Yuki Ueno pinned Shunma Katsumata in their final preview match. Akito pointed out to Katsumata that they can’t treat Ueno like a junior like they used to in DNA. Their opponents are champions and should be treated as such. Ueno thinks that Katsumata hasn’t gained much from his Gold’s Gym workouts.

Sanshiro Takagi said that next year is the 5th year DDT will be promoting shows in Matsuyama. He promises there will be a big match on next year’s show to celebrate the milestone. The hope is to find a venue with a capacity of around 1,000 people for the show.

The “Day & Night” part of the show’s name referred to a doubleshot DDT was doing with Big Japan today. This DDT show was held in the afternoon and Big Japan held their show in the evening. There was little interaction between the two companies though. The only Big Japan presence here was Ryuichi Kawakami promoting their show during intermission.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Mr. Maji Manji Battle: Makoto Oishi Vs Kota Umeda
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

Kota Umeda has been one of the most featured wrestlers on “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” since the first episode. However Makoto Oishi feels that he should be the star of the show. The two of them will fight over the claim. It’s a bigger deal for Oishi than Umeda though. Umeda has bigger fish to fry.

Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa will be in attendance so he can kick Ken Ohka’s ass. This is not supposed to be a wrestling match, it is literally going to be Nasukawa kicking Ohka up the ass.

In past instances, wrestlers who eliminate a gauntlet holder in these matches even by throwing them out of the ring get to win their gauntlet. Usually the only way for a Gauntlet holder to survive is to win the match or eliminated themselves by jumping over the top rope.

4. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Fuminori Abe Vs Yasu Urano
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: FUMA Vs Takumi Tsukamoto

The feud between Hercules Senga and the Best Stretchmen has driven Senga mad. So mad that he now wrestles in a banana suit and is called Banana Senga by the ring announcers. His first appearance as a banana saw him beat the Best Stretchmen in what was supposed to be the final match between them. However Best Stretchman V3 booked at least two more final matches between him and Senga this month. He wants to do more and more feud ending matches with Senga from now until I suppose the end of time.

6. Numazu Global Specialty! Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #8”, 12/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Gota Ihashi
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yoshihiko (c) Vs Saki Akai Vs Akito Vs Antonio Honda Vs Keisuke Ishii Vs Makoto Oishi Vs Toru Owashi Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Hiratimo Dragon Vs MAO Vs Makoto Vs Mad Paulie

5. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo
6. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
7. A Match To Verify What To Do In Order To Keep Ken Ohka From Crying Against Tenshin Nasukawa: Danshoku Dieno & Ken Ohka Vs Mike Bailey & Tanomusaku Toba

On this week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”, Ken Ohka learned he will have to face kickboxing protege Tenshin Nasukawa later this month. Ohka is scared of what will happen to him when he faces the undefeated kickboxer. Danshoku Dieno is coming up with ideas to motivate Ohka and help him handle his fear. Maybe a match against two kick heavy wrestlers isn’t the brightest idea.

Gota Ihashi has been training to get on Riki Choshu’s next event. There are two problems to this. 1) Choshu wants nothing to do with him and 2) some of the DDT wrestlers are getting annoyed by Ihashi’s behaviour and now want to kick his ass. Yukio Sakaguchi mainly.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOKASAN~”, 16/06/2018
Hiroshima Aster Plaza Multipurpose Hall

DDT “DAY & NIGHT SAME DAY BOX OFFICE FESTIVAL IN MATSUYAMA 2018”, 17/06/2018
Matsuyama City Community Center Planning Exhibition Hall

1. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino
2. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Mike Bailey
3. Ryutaro Watanabe Debut Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Ryutaro Watanbe
4. If You Wrestle, Do Something Like This! Matsuyama Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie

DDT and Big Japan are running shows back to back in the same venue that day. However I don’t think there will be cross-promotional matches on either show.

Ryutaro Watanabe was a DDT trainee from 2012 who was never able to wrestle because of two dislocated shoulder injuries. Now he returns years later asking Sanshiro Takagi if he could finally debut and do so in front of his hometown. Takagi accepted and Watanabe will wrestle against Tetsuya Endo. Endo was chosen because his debut in 2012 is the closest to the time Watanabe was in training.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “PARADISE TRAIN 2018”, 17/06/2018

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shuichiro Katsumura

Last year Mineo Fujita created a promotion called Chinko Pro Wrestling and held shows every month or two until a dick injury took him out of action. Fujita blamed the injury on accumulated damage to his dick from wrestling on those shows so this July he is putting the company on hiatus until his dick has fully recovered. Tominaga wants to wrestle Fujita on behalf of Ganbare☆Wrestling to prove that Ganpro is better than Chinko Pro. This impressed Ken Ohka enough to take Tominaga out of his already booked tag match and put him against Fujita one on one.

Aaron Anders is from Compound Pro Wrestling in Oklahoma, USA. He takes Tominaga’s original spot in the opening tag team match.

DDT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING 2018”, 24/06/2018

DDT “WRESTLE FEST IN MATSUYAMA 2017” Results

June 18, 2017

DDT “WRESTLE FEST IN MATSUYAMA 2017”, 18/06/2017
Matsuyama City Community Center – Planning Exhibition Hall
298 Fans

1. Keisuke Ishii, Antonio Honda & Saki Akai defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Hirata Collection A.T. when Ishii pinned Hirata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (10:46).
2. 3 Way Match: Mad Paulie defeated Makoto Oishi and Diego when Paulie pinned Oishi with the Reverse Splash (5:37).
*Mad Paulie wins Makoto Oishi’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
3. Good Luck! Matsuyama Two Big Single Match: Danshoku Dino defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Danshoku Driver (9:22).
*Matsuyama is now a Gay Town.
4. Shuten-dōji Vs NωA!: KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Shunma Katsumata & MAO when KUDO pinned MAO with the Diving Double Knee Drop (9:22).
5. Good Luck! Matsuyama Two Big Single Match: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Yukio Sakaguchi with a Power Bomb (9:54).
6. Wrestling If You Do It Like This Matsuyama Special Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Mike Bailey defeated HARASHIMA & Soma Takao when Bailey pinned Takao with the Ultima Weapon (9:25).
7. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Akito submitted Endo with the Perfect Figure Four Leg Lock (16:46).

Akito sent a message loud and clear to his King Of DDT opponent Tetsuya Endo by making him submit to the Perfect Figure Four. The victory came when Akito avoided the Shooting Star Press. Afterwards he grabbed Endo in the Ankle Lock, shifted it into a Knee Crusher and then applied the Perfect Figure Four. Akito is acting humble after the result though. He thinks he is inferior to the other King Of DDT semi-finalists and has the least chance out of the four to win the tournament. But it seems that people like him can stand out in Sumo Hall. Perhaps an ALL OUT main event at Sumo Hall this August can be on the cards after all. Akito asked Konosuke Takeshita not to hate him if he becomes the next KO-D Openweight Champion because he wants to return to Matsuyama with the belt around his waist!

Hey, guess what? Naomi Yoshimura told everyone another tale of hardship in his life that is totally Takeshita’s fault. First his family fell apart, next his social life vanished and then his grandmother was arrested for shoplifting. Yoshimura was all alone. So to cheer himself up he went to his favourite restaurant to eat his favourite southern chicken barbecue meal. The food isn’t actually good but it always seemed to make him work harder when he ate it. But when he arrived he saw the restaurant had closed down. He asked the neighboring businesses what had happened and the answers made him angry. It turned out another high school student ate an oyster at the restaurant and it gave him food poisoning afterwards. The police had to close down the restaurant in order to investigate the incident. Who was the ill student? Konosuke Takeshita! Now Yoshimura can’t get his favourite southern chicken barbecue because Takeshita had to go get food poisoning from a fucking oyster! Yoshimura will use his Right To Challenge to ruin Takeshita’s life when the time is right.

The Ultima Weapon is Mike Bailey’s Shooting Star Double Knee Drop. What is it with Canadians and Final Fantasy in this company?

All hell broke loose after the Kazusada Higuchi Vs Yukio Sakaguchi match. Higuchi won the match by countering a Triangle Choke into a pinning Power Bomb. It turned out Sakaguchi was pinned because he refused to let go of the choke and kept squeezing until Higuchi fainted. When Higuchi was revived by Yukinori Matsui, Higuchi attacked Sakaguchi thinking the match was still going on. Matsui had to pull the two apart and told Higuchi he won. Both Higuchi and Sakaguchi still tried to start fighting again and had to be held back from each other. Backstage Higuchi said neither man won today. Sakaguchi was pinned but Higuchi lost consciousness. To him that is a loss. He promises next time he will absolutely beat Sakaguchi.

NωA are on shaky ground after losing to Shuten-dōji. The KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions are hoping to beat them in their upcoming title match so the unit can go into its first anniversary with the belts around their waists.

Mad Paulie dominated the 3 Way Match. He couldn’t be stopped even when his opponents Makoto Oishi and Diego formed a brief alliance against him. Paulie got Diego out of the ring, hit Oishi with a Lariat and pinned him with the Reverse Splash. Now Paulie has a Right To Challenge Contract in his possession.

Akito and Tetsuya Endo spent their time at the press conference bickering about whether or not Endo is a hard working person only pretending to be a rebel.
