6. Shunma Katsumata Produce – Hardcore 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yuki Ueno, Shunma Katsumata and MAO when Takeshita pinned Katsumata with a Rolling Cradle (19:26).

Day 2 of Beer Garden had The 37KAMIINA all face each other in a Hardcore 4 Way Match. Tables, ladders and chairs were placed around the ring for them to use but each wrestler brought out their own weapons too. MAO brought out a massage gun and homemade shield, Yuki Ueno had training equipment, Konosuke Takeshita had a bat covered in toy blocks and Shunma Katsumata had a plastic box full of toy blocks inside. Since this match was put together by Katsumata he asked the others to join him in a chair duel. They did so but the other three later put Katsumata through a table. MAO also put Ueno through a plastic box and chairs with an Avalanche Package Piledriver. Katsumata threw his boxes at everyone and filled the ring with toy blocks. He gave Takeshita a Hurricanrana onto the pile but Takeshita continued the momentum and rolled his opponent into a pinning combination for the win. After the match Katsumata had to call the rest of the unit back into the ring so they could close out the show together. He asked each of them what they thought of the match but cut off every answer so he could say how awesome he is. He then listed all of the championships The 37KAMIINA are fighting for next month. They will become the central stove of DDT and will turn the company into a sauna!

Makoto Oishi was in attendance to watch Junretsu face MEN’S Club in his produce match. Yusuke Okada won the match in Oishi’s place but Oishi insists he is not his substitute. Despite that, he gives his support to Okada to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Jun Akiyama next month. He also wants to book Akiyama versus MEN’S Teioh in a singles match after their first time meeting today. Both Akiyama and Teioh joked that Oishi shouldn’t be booking singles matches between two wrestlers over 50.

The CyberFight Concurso was a chance for DDT’s bodybuilders to strut their stuff in their underwear. That idea was almost ruined when Tetsuya Endo pinned Gorgeous Matsuno in under a minute. Hisaya Imabayashi told Endo to restart the match because Matsuno is his dad’s friend. The match began again, they repeated the spot and this time Matsuno kicked out. However Matsuno then gave Low Blows to everyone in the ring, causing the match to get thrown out. A winner had to be determined so everyone decided on a pose off. They also forced Imabayashi to take part in it. The audience voted for the winner and they chose Imabayashi!

DAMNATION met their mirror opposites when Chris Brookes, Antonio Honda & Super Sasadango Machine showed up as IyasareNATION! Brookes was Chrisma Brookes, Honda was Mad Anton and Sasadango was Yoshihiro Hino. That last one made Yuji Hino laugh. In a reversal, Mad Paulie took Honda’s comedy spot and told his own Gongitsune joke through grunts. He also got the pin on Honda to win in the end.

The 3 Way Match ended in a 5 minute draw so Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Naya and Naomi Yoshimura decided on a sumo tournament to settle on a winner. Higuchi was the first person to win twice in a row so he was determined the winner.

Every now and then Soma Takao reminds everyone he is influenced by CIMA. He did it here by beating Keigo Nakamura with the Perfect Driver.

Okada’s move up the card causes a few changes to other matches. Toru Owashi replaces Okada in Match #5. The 3 Way Match Owashi was a part of is now just a singles match between Danshoku Dieno and The Intelligent Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021 TOUR IN SHINJUKU”, 15/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – No DQ, No Submission Rules: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Shinya Aoki (I/c)

A lot of time was spent by Chris Brookes thinking up the stipulation for the double title match against Shinya Aoki. He decided on No DQs and also No Submission rules. Moves that are normally illegal are allowed but almost all kinds of submission holds will be banned. The only kinds that can be used are holds the referee will deem too dangerous to use in normal matches. Aoki complained about the rules but Brookes explained that he also is at a disadvantage because he cannot use the Octopus Hold. Therefore they will be on equal footing. Aoki thinks the rules will create the worst wrestling match of the century. Brookes disagrees. His felt his title defence against Saki Akai brought new aspects to her wrestling game. So from now on he is using his DDT Extreme Title matches to show new sides of his opponents that no one has ever seen before. Aoki had no choice but to accept the stipulation. He had to be reminded that his Choke Holds won’t be allowed either.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY RETURNS VOL. 4”, 26/07/2021

5. MONDAY NIGHT WAR: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Minoru Fujita

There will be a special guest on the show in the form of Darkunesu K. This being is a character Keigo Nakamura came up with during the Lords Mobile promotional campaign DDT was a part of recently. Nakamura needs to do a lot of dark activities during the day in order to summon Darkunesu K from within himself.

I’m hoping for a big showing from Leo Isaka against Tetsuya Endo here.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 1”, 30/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Danshoku Dieno Produce Match – Kaidan Shin Numabukuro Death Match ~Showa, Heisei, Reiwa Are Also A Classic!~: X Vs X
2. Saki Akai Produce Match: Kazusada Higuchi’s Relative, Yukio Sakaguchi’s Relative & Saki Akai’s Relative Vs Kazuki Hirata’s Relative, Yuki Iino’s Relative & Keigo Nakamura’s Relative
3. HARASHIMA Produce Match: X Vs X

It’s all relatives for one of the matches on the first day of Beer Garden. It is Saki Akai’s idea to get some “enchanted blood” wrestling in her segment.

Hisaya Imabayashi gets to tell his annual ghost story. Where does he keep getting them?

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 2”, 31/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shunma Katsumata Produce – Hardcore 4 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Yuki Ueno Vs Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO
2. Tetsuya Endo Produce Match: Tetsuya Endo & Hiroshi Yamato Vs Seiya Morohashi & X
3. Makoto Oishi Produce Match ~ Our Youth: Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Hideki Okatani Vs MEN’S Teioh, Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi

I think this is the first time Jun Akiyama and MEN’S Teioh will be in the same match together. Makoto Oishi has gone all out with this booking with Shiori Asahi included to make it a more complete Men’s Club reunion.

Seiya Morohashi? Boy it’s been years since he was last in DDT. I mean yeah there was an appearance on a Masahiro Takanashi booked show in 2019 but other than that his last DDT match was in 2016.

Of course Shunma Katsumata’s idea for his slot is to put all of The 37KAMIINA into a hardcore match.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 3”, 01/08/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Rock & Roll Death Match: Antonio Honda Vs X

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021”, 15/08/2021

There will be an Infomercial match promoting a new show on WOWOW called Kininashi Wanaru ~The Universe In My Head~. The series explores different forms of creativity and one of the episodes will focus on DDT. The two hosts Noritake Kinsahi and Cunning Takeyama will be special guests at Korakuen Hall to witness what DDT has cooked up for them.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
1. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Konosuke Takeshita says everything is in order for him to become the KO-D Openweight Champion again. His King Of DDT victory showed he now has the physical ability, mental attributes, luck and momentum to be the top wrestler in DDT. He has lost two singles matches to Akiyama that both took place last winter. It was up to Takeshita to fix his own problems and it began with his appearances in AEW back in April. As a result of his own actions over the last three months, Takeshita is now confident to fight Akiyama to see who is best. Even though Akiyama is well accepted into the DDT family at this point, Takeshita is still going to treat him as the enemy.

As if having Atsushi Onita isn’t enough to keep the hardcore flavour around, Jun Kasai will be on the show too. Katsumata and Brookes have a little bit of tag history with him. MAO fought him in a Hardcore match a few years ago too.


DDT “CHRIS BROOKES PRODUCE SHOW 3 – DANGER AND PLEASURE TOUR ’96” Results

April 4, 2021

DDT “CHRIS BROOKES PRODUCE SHOW 3 – DANGER & PLEASURE TOUR ’96”, 04/04/2021
Saitama Wrestle Butokan
0 Fans

1. DDT Extreme Title – No DQ Falls Count Anywhere Match: Chris Brookes (c) defeated Mecha Mummy with a Jackknife Pin in the children’s pool (12:14).
*V1 for Chris Brookes.
2. MEN’S Teioh, Hagane Shinno & Makoto Oishi defeated Yuki Ueno, MAO & Keigo Nakamura when Teioh pinned Nakamura after the Triple Ecstasy (13:21).
3. HARASHIMA defeated Baliyan Akki with the Somato (16:08).

The third DDT show produced in the English language for international viewers begun with the DDT Extreme Title match. The champion Chris Brookes was accompanied by Masahiro Takanashi while the challenger Mecha Mummy had a professor wearing an eyepatch by his side to overlook its performance. Brookes had the gameplan figured out. He just needed to splash water onto Mummy to make it short circuit. However Mummy was waterproofed with a face shield and wasn’t in danger. Brookes then tried using a water gun but Mummy quickly grabbed it off him and destroyed it. The Mecha Fist and Jet Scrambler were used by both wrestlers as the fight broke out around ringside. Brookes was in serious trouble when Mummy stabbed him with the Mecha Drill. Takanashi came to the rescue by pouring a can of beer over Mummy to make it short circuit. Brookes then knocked Mummy into a nearby pool with the Rocket Punch and pinned it with a Jackknife for his first successful title defence.

Mecha Mummy recovered after the match and assaulted Brookes. Suddenly a rival from Mummy’s past appeared from the stage. It was Mokujin Ken! After a staredown with much visible shaking, Mummy and Ken started fighting each other. Everyone tried to pull them apart but the broadcast got cut off.

For one night only the MEN’S Club was revived and given a chance to show the young generation what they are still made of. MEN’S Teioh wrestled throughout with a smile on his face, getting Hagane Shinno & Makoto Oishi to join in for group poses. When their opponents took control Yuki Ueno & MAO did their own poses to get one back on them. MEN’S Club had the last laugh in the end. Teioh gave Keigo Nakamura the Miracle Ecstasy but the pin was broken up. So the MEN’S Club all got together to give Nakamura the Triple Ecstasy for the finish, pose included.

Baliyan Akki was given the main event spotlight again after his impressive performance against Konosuke Takeshita back in February. This time he was pitted against HARASHIMA. They got tangled up together with dual Ankle Holds and the stalemate was broken up when Akki hit a Topé Con Hilo to the outside. HARASHIMA tried using his strikes to fight back but was almost beaten with the Firebird Splash. HARASHIMA used his knees to block the Namaste Press but Akki was able to catch the Somato for a submission attempt. HARASHIMA reach the ropes and won a strike exchange, finishing Akki off with a Super Kick, the Reverse Frankensteiner and then the Somato for the victory.

Brookes and Mr. HAKU held an English roundtable with Akki, MAO and Ueno after the show. Brookes said whenever he books shows, he does not want to be the main character. He prefers to put the spotlight on other wrestlers. He doesn’t know what is going to happen at the next show between Mecha Mummy and Mokujin Ken. He is at least relieved that Ken came to the rescue, otherwise the next show would have become a Mecha Mummy produce with everyone turned into mecha wrestlers. For the MEN’S Club match Brookes said he has always been a fan of the unit after watching loads of Big Japan shows. He watched one of their matches with MAO recently and learned that MAO is also a fan. MAO was happy to do the match because his style is the 2000s Jr. Heavyweight wrestling that came from the likes of Michinoku Pro and Toryumon. Ueno then had to be part of the match because he is MAO’s stablemate. Nakamura was the third wrestler added because the original choice had a scheduling conflict. For the main event Brookes wanted to see Akki in a different environment. Drew Parker came up with the idea to do Akki Vs HARASHIMA. Akki promised to get beers for Parker the next time he sees him as long as Parker doesn’t show up bloody.

The BOYZ show has a inter-brand main event but will YaroZ do the same? Tokyo Joshi Pro is also doing a female audience only show in the same venue that day. Then away from all that there is the Chris Brookes produce show and a BASARA event too. Busy, busy, busy.

Jun Masaoka will also be on the show.

9. Special Tag Match ~Dramatic Dream~: Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA defeated Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi when Takeshita pinned Higuchi with the German Suplex (27:14).

Referee Yukinori Matsui celebrated his 25th anniversary in the business with a special show featuring DDT and Osaka talent. The main event featured Shigehiro Irie’s first match back in DDT since “DDT IS COMING TO AMERICA” in April. His interactions with Konosuke Takeshita stood out in the match. Takeshita gave Irie a Brainbuster on the entry ramp. Later on Irie cut off Takeshita’s Fable by hitting him with the Traffic Accident Tackle in mid-air! HARASHIMA got rid of Irie by hitting a Flying Double Knee Strike to the outside. Takeshita was able to hit the Fable on Kazusada Higuchi. He then pinned him with the German Suplex.

Takeshita said after the match he did not want to shake hands with Higuchi or Irie. Especially Irie because he was the one to end his record breaking KO-D Openweight Title reign over a year ago. However fighting him today reminded Takeshita that Irie is a rival and what he would like is to fight him again someday. Irie said he is happy with how much everyone has grown since he left DDT. He came here today to celebrate Matsui’s career and take another group photo with him.

The semi-main event was a scrap between Kaientai DX and the Kishiwada Brigade. A ringside brawl left Dick Togo & MEN’S Teioh both bleeding from their heads. Togo and Magnitude Kishiwada then brought in chairs and took turns hitting each other over the head with them. Kishiwada put Togo through a table with a Diving Body Press to the outside. Buffalo didn’t come out in one piece either. His mask was torn up and he too was busted open by Teioh. A collision between him and Kishiwada led to Togo getting the pin on Buffalo with a School Boy. The result angered Kishiwada so much that he gave his partner a Lariat before leaving the ring.

Kikutaro misunderstood what the show was and thought it was supposed to be Matsui’s funeral.

Matsui spent so many days putting this show together that Super Sasadango Machine wanted to give him a break. So Danshoku Dieno became the referee for Match #3. Sasadango went to give Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi the F5 but Hiroshi fell on top of him and immediately pinned him. Hisaya Imabayashi demanded a restart with Matsui as the ref again. The match went on as normal. Well as normal as a match with this lot could be.

Kuishinbo Kamen sent a video message apologising for missing the show because of an injury.


“ALL DOIN” Results

November 9, 2018

“ALL DOIN”, 09/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

3. Cherry defeated El Uranai with the Spring Night Love (4:46).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Mizuhime Saijo with a Rope Assisted School Boy (7:25).
4. Yumehito Imanari & Mikiya Sasaki (w/ GM Okuma) defeated Fumihito Kihara & Kentochu Miyahara when Sasaki submitted Miyahara with a Spinning Toe Hold (11:05).
5. 100 Glow Sticks No Electricity No Explosion Delayed Entry Battle Royal: Pipe Chair defeated Hen China (w/ Marilyn & Amy), Kim Yotchan, Sanshiro Takagi, Paul Ishida, Kim Yotchan V3, Gundan Hitori and Kim Michinoku (18:38).

5e. Pipe Chair eliminated Kim Michinoku by Ring Out (18:37).
5f. Pipe Chair eliminated Gundan Hitori & Paul Ishida by Double Ring Out (18:38).
6. First Encounter! The Monster Man Of The Indies Vs Tokyo Sports 2006 Buzz Award! Special Single Match: Mecha Mummy defeated Survival Tobita with the Mach Drill (9:38).
7. MEN’S Teioh, HARASHIMA & Shota defeated Eririn Takagi, Monster Halloween & ONAKIN when Teioh submitted ONAKIN with a Cross Facelock (13:15).
8. Pero Pero Master defeated Tiger Mask V (Self-Proclaimed) with the Ultimate Pero Pero Driver (13:26).

Oh, Pero Pero Master is the name of Antonio Honda’s Hulk Hogan parody. He was victorious over Tiger Mask V (Self-Proclaimed) in the main event. Tiger Mask was as graceful as a tiger flying a blimp and was left stunned when he pulled down Pero Pero’s tights and saw he was wearing a thong with an elephant’s head on the front. Pero Pero hit the Ultimate Pero Pero Driver which is a no hands Pedigree for the win. After the match Tiger Mask had his own tights pulled down to reveal he too wears an elephant thong.

Eririn Takagi, Monster Halloween & ONAKIN did well against the veteran team of MEN’S Teioh, HARASHIMA & Shota but it all fell apart in the end. Takagi and Halloween got at each other’s throats while ONAKIN was left alone helpless against Teioh. ONAKIN was given a Back Drop and was trapped in a Cross Facelock to end the match.

For the first time in years the mythical Mecha Mummy came back to this mortal realm for a first time encounter against the man among monsters, Survival Tobita. Mummy was now armed with duel Mach Drills and hadn’t aged a day since his last match… because it’s a robot. Mummy drilled Tobita into submission and the damage was so bad, Tobita had to be stretchered out of the ring. However he still had the strength to spean into the microphone and swear revenge on Mecha Mummy!

The Battle Royal involved 100 flashlights attached to the ropes the same way lighttubes would be for deathmatches. The stipulation was so dangerous that the ring out rule was changed for everyone’s safety. Wrestlers would now get eliminated when they get thrown out over the middle rope as well as the top rope. Also before the match began it was announced that the two invisible wrestlers scheduled to enter the match both died in an unexpected accident so they would not be competing today. The 10 bell salute for them was given while the flashlights were being attached to the ropes. Among the highlights were Paul Ishida using voodoo to eliminate Sanshiro Takagi, Kim Yotchan turning into Kim Yotchan V3 by covering his face in cream, Gundan Hitori & Hen China stretching rubber bands and snapping them into Ishida, Takagi reappearing wearing a skirt made of flashlights, Hitori using the dreaded cola and Mentos combination to eliminate China and the remaining wrestlers all getting eliminated when they left the ring to rave with the fans, leaving a chair all alone in the ring. The chair was declared the winner.

Yumehito Imanari & Mikiya Sasaki entered the ring dressed like the Funk Brothers and used some of their moves to beat Fumihito Kihara & Kentochu Miyahara. Miyahara did a good Kento Miyahara parody but pointed out his one flaw. He carried a replica IWGP Title belt to the ring instead of a Triple Crown belt. He wanted to make a replica Triple Crown but admits it was easier to just buy the IWGP replica and pretend it’s the other one.

Match #2 was actually the third match on the card because Mizuhime Saijo was delayed travelling to the show. She left her phone behind in a taxi and had to go collect it. Hyper Misao pointed out that the distance from Shin-Kiba station to Shin-Kiba 1st RING is only a three minute walk so Saijo didn’t even need to take the taxi in the first place. Saijo used her water gun on Misao, Daisuke Kiso, Yuki Ueno and Yuki Iino. Apparently the water gun is harmless only to those with a beautiful heart. Kiso, Ueno and Iino were all knocked out by it. Misao claimed her heart is beautiful so she willingly got shot and collapsed afterwards. Saijo had Misao pinned but Kiso was unconscious. When he recovered, Misao rolled up Saijo with a School Boy and placed her feet on the ropes for leverage to get the three count.

El Uranai played mind games with Cherry by telling her stuff about life being short and she still isn’t married yet. It worked at first until Uranai made Cherry grab his crotch. Cherry snapped out of it when she realised how “small” Uranai is. She went on the counterattack and pinned the masked man with the Spring Night Love. Cherry not only won the match but now gained the confidence to still be living by herself.

Movie Star used a rubber swimming ring to trap his opponents by the leg and cover them with body blow punches. Everybody else in the match seemed kind of normal by comparison.

The man in charge of today MEN’S Teioh thanked everyone for coming to see the shitshow. The reason these kind of wrestling shows take place is because you can find diamonds in the rough here. “ALL DOIN” was all about bringing together the best of these diamonds to do things that can only be possible in pro wrestling. Teioh then ended the show with a battle cry. “1, 2, 3…4!”

Sanshiro Takagi thinks he may have something in his hands with ALL DOIN as a brand. He thinks the indie scene has been a bit quiet lately with a lot of doubt and cynicism whenever he talks to people about it. He remembers when FMW was considered a super indie. While ALL DOIN is obviously a very different beast, today’s show makes him wonder if something similar can be done on a regular basis today.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN ONE”, 27/10/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

2. Yuki Aino Vs Raku
3. Yuna Manase Vs Miu
4. Special 8-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Reika Saiki, Yuu & Hyper Misao Vs Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki, Shoko Nakajima & Maki Ito

Two firsts for Tokyo Joshi Pro are happening on this show. We’re getting a 4 Vs 4 Tokyo Joshi tag match for the first time. We are also getting a 1 Vs 16 match for the first time to celebrate Azusa Takigawa’s graduation. No further details yet have been given on how the match will work. Other companies have done special gauntlet matches for their retiring wrestlers in the past where every round only has a one minute time limit and the chosen wrestler goes through all opponents no matter how much they win, lose or draw. I guess it will be something similar here.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI KORAKUEN HALL SPECIAL!!”, 28/10/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs El Lindaman
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Joshi Battle Royal: Yuki Arai (c) (w/ Makoto Oishi) Vs Saki Akai Vs Maki Ito Vs Cherry Vs Emi Sakura Vs Yuki Kamifuku Vs Mizuki
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie (c) Vs CIMA, T-Hawk & Duan Yingnan
4. DDT Extreme Title – Wrestling Rules: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Shinya Aoki
5. Special Tag Match: Naomichi Marufuji & Konosuke Takeshita Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa

The new KO-D Openweight Champion has been drinking non-stop in celebration since winning the title yesterday. Daisuke Sasaki doesn’t remember much about the last 24 hours because of this. His prize money is already gone because he recently spent 4 million yen on things including a brand new car. The prize money from the main event was 2 million yen by the way. Sasaki hopes his victory was enough to impress both Laura James and Candice LeRae. His first defence is confirmed to be against the Dramatic General Election winner at Korakuen Hall on 25th November.

Danshoku Dieno has not been seen or heard from since the ending of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” when DAMNATION locked him into a coffin. Sasaki ordered Nobuhiro Shimatani to go burn it when the show was over. Dieno is not expected to appear at Korakuen this weekend.

With ALL OUT swept aside, STRONG HEARTS are sticking around in DDT so they can win a championship. CIMA’s goal is to become a champion one more time before he turns 41 at his next birthday. The group has chosen the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles as their target. CIMA, T-Hawk and Duan Yingnan will be the trio challenging DAMNATION in the match. T-Hawk said STRONG HEARTS share everything together. That is what makes them the strongest unit. Yingnan is hoping to bring a championship back to Shanghai. CIMA calls Konosuke Takeshita the standard of DDT. It is up to the rest of the DDT roster to prove they are better otherwise they will only disappoint CIMA. Tetsuya Endo admitted that Takeshita beating CIMA yesterday would have been a happy ending for all of DDT, except for Endo because he still hates Takeshita to death. All of the attention should now be on DAMNATION because of the championships they hold. Also Endo believes that Mad Paulie will be the key wrestler to watch when the match happens. This is all bringing back awkward memories for Soma Takao. Back when he was a college pro wrestler he was called BIMA and he was, yes you guessed it, a CIMA parody. Shimatani was more than happy to tell CIMA that over and over when the two teams met at today’s press conference. The letter B is above C for a reason according to Shimatani.

Shimatani’s posturing was quick to annoy El Lindaman. The two argued back and forth about their short heights until they were booked to face each other.

Makoto Oishi has offered to help SKE48 idol Yuki Arai defend her Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title in the Joshi Battle Royal. The reason is Oishi loves idols, especially ones named Arai. This must be fate! It’s enough for Arai to trust him at least. Maki Ito is already upset with Arai because she never introduced herself to her, even though they only met today when Ito stormed the conference. Ito finds that disrespectful because she is Arai’s senior in the idol world.

“ALL DOIN”, 09/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tiger Mask V (Self-Proclaimed) Vs Pero Pero Master
2. Eririn Takagi, Monster Halloween & ONAKIN Vs MEN’S Teioh, HARASHIMA & Shota

MEN’S Teioh was chosen by Sanshiro Takagi to be the executive chairman of the “ALL DOIN” committee. HARASHIMA is considered one of the strongest wrestlers in Japan’s independent scene so why not put him on the show celebrating independent wrestling? Shota also has a lot of experience in that section of the industry.

I’m not sure who Pero Pero Master (ぺろぺろ親方) is. Google isn’t offering much.

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.2 ~WRESTLE THRASHING MAD~”, 08/12/2018

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Ricky Fuji
2. Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Takumi Tsukamoto & Yuka Miyamoto

7. KO-D Openweight Title – Survival 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno defeated Meiko Satomura (c) and Shigehiro Irie (20:01).
7a. Danshoku Dieno eliminated Shigehiro Irie with the Gaydo Clutch (16:09).
7b. Danshoku Dieno eliminated Meiko Satomura with the Danshoku Driver (20:01).
*Meiko Satomura fails in V1. Danshoku Dieno becomes the 67th KO-D Openweight Champion!

The bumpy road towards Sumo Hall took another crazy turn today when Danshoku Dieno reclaimed the KO-D Openweight Title! Dieno used all of his wits to pin both champion Meiko Satomura and enemy Shigehiro Irie in a Survival 3 Way Match to win the belt. Irie was eliminated first when Dieno stopped his Beast Bomber with the Lip Lock. That left Irie defenceless for Satomura to hit the Scorpio Rising. Dieno then rolled Irie over with the Gaydo Clutch to pin him for the three count. Satomura took control of the match until Dieno blocked the Scorpio Rising and hit his own Death Valley Bomb on the champion. From there the Danshoku Driver put Satomura down and out leading to the new champion crowned.

In all his honesty, Dieno never thought he could do it but now he gets to be in the “PETER PAN” main event for the first time in his career! But first he needed to settle his grudge with Irie. He knows that Irie was never the best with words but Dieno understands what Irie wanted ever since his return earlier this year. He knows Irie didn’t like what DDT has changed into and he fought to make his vision of DDT. Irie is a part of DDT and Dieno promises to carry Irie’s vision on his back as champion. Dieno is grateful for what Irie has done so rather than apologise, he wants to thank him instead. Dieno offered out a handshake. At first Irie refused but only because Dieno stuck out his right hand. Irie wanted to shake Dieno’s left hand because it is closer to his heart.

Dieno then called over to Satomura to bury the hatchet with her. He understands what Satomura was fighting for. The KO-D Title is not exclusive to men or women, it is indiscriminate. After today Satomura has a win over Dieno and Dieno has a win over Satomura. Now he wants to shake hands with the rival who he is tied with. Satomura shook Dieno’s left hand then shook hands with Irie as well. All of Dieno’s problems are over. Well, except for the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” main event…

The Sumo Hall main event is now confirmed to be Danshoku Dieno Vs Daisuke Sasaki with the KO-D Title on the line. When Irie and Satomura left the ring, Sasaki entered to confront the new champion. This is what Sasaki hates about Dieno. He hates how Dieno unexpectedly achieved his dream of main eventing Sumo Hall. Sasaki hates people who talk about their dreams. He is also sick of Dieno being the symbol of DDT. At Sumo Hall, Sasaki wants to make Dieno cry instead. Dieno told Sasaki that the main event of Sumo Hall will exceed his imagination. So if Sasaki wants to take the title from Dieno and replace him as the symbol, he better be prepared!

Hardcore action was promised in the semi-main event. Kikutaro was ready for it because he had both Sabu and Jun Kasai on his team. All he asked was for ALL OUT to avoid touching the right side of his head because he legit just had ear surgery. Konosuke Takeshita chopped the ear and knocked Kikutaro out. Kikutaro had to be carried away from ringside but he eventually returned with his bandages wrapped around his mask. There were a lot of chairs used in the match thanks to Sabu’s valet Super Genie throwing them into the ring whenever Sabu requested one. Sabu put Takeshita through a table with a Top Rope Leg Drop and Kasai hit the Pearl Harbor Splash but Akito & Shunma Katsumata stopped the pin in time to continue the match. Kikutaro set Takeshita up for a Brainbuster but wasted time giving his usual match ending speech to the audience. Takeshita later put Kikutaro in position for the Deadlift German Suplex and he also wasted time speaking to the fans. Kikutaro rolled him over with a Samson Clutch for a nearfall. He then tried the Brainbuster but his back gave out. Takeshita was then able to hit the Deadlift German Suplex for the win.

With that match out of the way, the entire ALL OUT unit stood in the ring to discuss their current form. Yuki Iino says he is ALL OUT but hasn’t gotten used to teaming with the others yet. Takeshita said ALL OUT is now fully resurrected but they have no place on the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” card with one month to go. If DDT isn’t going to give them a match then maybe they should go on the next episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” and do something about it. Takeshita was then cut off by the surprise appearance of the STRONG HEARTS! Out came CIMA, T-Hawk, El Lindaman & Duan Yingnan down to the ring. CIMA told Takeshita he watched the match he just had and felt there wasn’t enough fever in the ring. CIMA wants to know if Takeshita is still on a high level. Does he know what real pro wrestling is? The STRONG HEARTS took a midnight flight from Shanghai just to come here today and this is what they had to watch? Well CIMA has news for them. The STRONG HEARTS have their schedule free on 21st October, the same day DDT goes to Sumo Hall. What is ALL OUT going to do about it?

Takeshita sees where this is going. ALL OUT Vs STRONG HEARTS at Sumo Hall. A tag match would be fun but Takeshita wants something else. He wants to fight CIMA one on one! CIMA couldn’t believe the nerve of this kid calling him out. CIMA has been living in this ring for 21 years. Is Takeshita really prepared to wrestle him? We’ll find out because CIMA accepted the challenge! T-Hawk then took the microphone and demanded the remaining wrestlers in the two units face off in a 6-Man Tag Match. Three versus three is the perfect amount for him. Akito said there was no reason to refuse so that match is on too. Interim GM Tetsuya Koda announced both matches for 21st October in Sumo Hall. Takeshita then pointed out the next episode of Maji Manji is being held in Shibuya in two days time and he wants a special match there. El Lindaman suggested a full ALL OUT Vs STRONG HEARTS 8-Man Tag Match so that every DDT fan and STRONG HEARTS fan could enjoy it. That match was agreed to. Takeshita noticed how STRONG HEARTS are going around the Japanese wrestling scene doing whatever they want. When they come to DDT, ALL OUT will be there to face them!

The Moonlight Express were lulled into a false sense of security when The Brahman Brothers started off their match offering handshakes. The Brahmans then spat water at the Express and attacked them to start the match. Buckets of water were placed around ringside and the two teams threw the buckets at each other and the audience. Mainly the audience. The Brahmans did their bowling ball suitcase spot but Mike Bailey & MAO recovered to do the Skylab Hurricane on Brahman Kei. They attempted the Michinoku Tornado Driver but it was stopped when Brahman Shu blinded both of them with black ink mist. The Brahmans took out a stop sign and tried to hit MAO with it but Kei ended up hitting Shu. MAO then popped a balloon in front of Kei’s face. The balloon turned out to be filled with powder and it blinded Kei! MAO & Bailey climbed the same top rope and together jumped off in different directions. Bailey Moonsaulted outside onto Shu while MAO jumped into the ring to hit the Cannoball 450 on Kei, pinning him to earn a successful defence of the KO-D Tag Team Titles. After the match as the Brahmans were leaving they said they gained new memories today. They also called the Midnight Express crazy! That means a lot coming from them.

Super Sasadango Machine had to reveal a secret to explain why he was teaming with DISASTER BOX today. He lifted up his mask to reveal he is Muscle Sakai! Sakai was a member of the original DISASTER BOX back in 2006 so that’s why he was out here teaming with the modern version. The eliminations in the 5 Vs 5 match mostly consisted of ring outs. Soma Takao blinded HARASHIMA with red mist. That allowed DAMNATION to easily eliminate HARASHIMA and also Toru Owashi at the same time. Sasadango sacrificed himself to eliminate Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani with him when all three were Dropkicked off the ring apron. Kazuki Hirata then evened the teams down to two each when he snuck onto the apron and knocked Takao to the floor with a Sliding Kick. Tetsuya Endo put DAMNATION back in the lead by pinning Yuki Ueno with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb. Hirata surprised Endo by pinning him with the Miracle One Shot Cradle, bringing the match down to Hirata and Sasaki. Hirata did what he could to pin Sasaki including attempting the Mad Splash. Sasaki blocked the splash with his knees and put Hirata in the Cross Facelock to make him submit. Sasaki wins the match as the sole survivor for DAMNATION! Backstage Sasadango told DISASTER BOX he will continue to support them because they are no good at studying their opponents.

Ethan Page made a statement in his return to Japan by beating Kazusada Higuchi. The power versus power match ended when Page gave Higuchi an over shoulder Power Slam from the top rope for the pin.

Keisuke Okuda announced at the beginning of the show that he is now a a full time member of the DDT roster starting today. He had his excuses for being on the losing team against Shuten-dōji. He’s fine teaming with Tanomusaku Toba because he knows how good he is with gloves on. It was Yumehito Imanari that was the weak link according to Okuda. Looking ahead to his new status, Okuda wants to face Yukio Sakaguchi in more matches.

The Philosopher’s Stomp from Jason Kincaid followed by the Back Drop from Mizuki Watase gave RENEGADES the victory in the show opener.

The New Member Audition for Booing 2018 gave a spotlight to many low level pro wrestlers from across the independent wrestling scene. Sanshiro Takagi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga took part in the match both as participants and as judges. We had Movie Star using a rubber swimming ring to trap his opponents, Gundan Hitori walking around Korakuen singing into a Coke bottle, Monster Halloween carrying a chainsaw down to the ring and even a surprise appearance from Lingerie Muto. The final four were Takagi, Matsunaga, Muto and Ehime Pro joshi wrestler Mizuhime Saijo. Muto climbed the ropes to do the Moonsault but he slipped and bounced out of the ring. Takagi and Matsunaga ended up on the ring apron when they missed an attack on Saijo against the ropes. Saijo then grabbed her water gun and sprayed the two Booing wrestlers until they fell down to the floor. Saijo was declared the winner!

With the Battle Royal portion of the competition over, Sanshiro Takagi announced the judging results. Everyone passed! Their prize is a spot on “ALL DOIN”, a special event for indie wrestlers taking place at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 9th November. Takagi then introduced the executive chairperson for the show. He is the student wrestling legend MEN’S Teioh! His role is to help everyone prepare for the show. Teioh was dismayed over the amount of shit being given to him but he knows he can find a diamond in there somewhere.

Yuni had Makoto Oishi pinned with a Hurricanrana but Antonio Honda poked him in the eyes with a Double Gongitsune Strike. Oishi then flipped Yuni over to pin him for the three count.

Yumehito Imanari was the hero of the day for Ganbare☆Wrestling as they beat Katsumura-gun in an Elimination Match. The tricky Black Ribera was eliminated first when Katsumi Oribe blocked his Hurricanrana to the apron and lifted him out of the ring. Shuichiro Katsumura evened the score by choking out Oribe with the Ninja Choke. Katsumura and Ken Ohka eliminated each other when they fought on the apron and Imanari knocked both of them to the floor. That left Imanari alone against Takeshi Okada. Katsumura-gun tried to interfere but Imanari hit the Chubby Knee kick and got the winning pinfall. Okada demanded to continue and Imanari challenged him to a match on 28th April.

The Tokai Special is MEN’S Teioh and Onryo doing T-Pose Power Bombs.

Nobuhiro Tsurumaki encouraged Gota Ihashi to continue wrestling. He’s been doing this for twenty years and no bad matches have ever stopped him.

J-Soul Pandita III IV wore a Tiger Jeet Singh style turban to mark the occasion of him teaming with Baliyan Akki. A landmark event in the relationship between India and wherever on earth Pandita is from. Pandita ruined the moment by attacking his opponents with an umbrella but Yukihiro Abe & Chikara stopped him with a Sling Blade, Sabre Chops and the Kamigoye.

Saki and Hikaru Shimizu were brought in as “pinch hitters” for the women’s match because HARUKAZE was away on a family vacation.

The rookie Shuhei Washida was put through the ringer by Tomomitsu Matsunaga. When they were fighting outside the ring Matsunaga threw Washida’s knee into a wall the targeted it for the rest of the match. Matsunaga then finished off a tired Washida with a Half Crab.
