*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 Mizuki 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.

5. Overall War! Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Katsumura-gun: Shuichiro Katsumura & Black Ribera defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ribera pinned Imanari with the OSCURO (19:58).

The addition of Black Ribera to Katsumura-gun was too much for Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to handle. The small high flyer countered a Super Power Bomb into a Hurricanrana. Shuichiro Katsumura choked out Ohka with the Ninja Choke then joined Ribera in kicking lumps out of Imanari. There was a glimpse of hope for Imanari when he hit a Double Lariat but his momentum was killed by a Fisherman Buster by Katsumura. Ribera then finished him off with the OSCURO Frog Splash. Katsumura told the Ganpuro team that no matter how many times they fight, he will never lose to them. Ribera decided that now was the time for him to introduce himself to everyone although he kept his nationality a secret. He said the Ganpuro fans are pretty good because they are lively even when they have to watch wrestlers like Ohka, Imanari and Shuhei Washida. Tension rose between the two sides which caused Katsumura-gun to leave. Washida begged Ohka to let him fight them. Ohka was touched to see the trainee has his back so he came up with a match. On 11th March in Osaka Ohka, Imanari & Washida will take on Katsumura-gun! Ohka said it has been five years since Ganbare☆Wrestling was created. Since then he has gained two families, his real one and his Ganpuro one. He doesn’t know if they can beat Katsumura-gun but they will fight them with all that they have.

Shinichiro Tominaga used some creative ideas to try and beat the legendary MEN’S Teioh. He used the referee twice to his advantage. The first time was to escape from the Spinning Toe Hold and the second time was Tominaga leap frogging over the ref to Dropkick an unsuspecting Teioh. Tominaga later countered the Miracle Ecstasy into a Hurricanrana but only got a nearfall out of it. Teioh succeeded hitting his move the second time and he made Tominaga submit to the Spinning Toe Hold. Tominaga called Teioh a god of Student Pro Wrestling but Teioh stopped him. Teioh said he isn’t a god although he did dye his hair red today to resemble a Super Saiyan God. He told Tominaga that pro wrestling isn’t just limited to 1 Vs 1. Next time they should bring together their Student Wrestling friends for another match. His university club was No. 1 but he’s welcome to take on any challengers to that claim. Tell him the place and he will be there along with Onryo! Teioh left to UWF chants but this UWF is referring to his Kanto Student Pro Wrestling club.

Shota was blinded and mistook HARUKAZE for one of his opponents. He gave her a Brainbuster and Samara followed up with a Blackout style Leg Drop called the Snake Charmer on HARUKAZE to get the pin. Samara & Baliyan Akki then taunted their opponents and told them to “Suck it!”

Gota Ihashi lost when he missed the Moonsault. Yukihiro Abe then used the Kamigoe to pin him. Ihashi bowed to the audience after the match.

Shuhei Washida refused to shake hands with Katsumi Oribe after their match.

At the end of the show Ken Ohka told the audience his e-mail address if they ever need consulting from him. Doesn’t matter what hardships they have, from debt to divorce he wants to give everyone fatherly advice. He will be everyone’s Ganbare☆Dad!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING
207 Fans

1. Ryuichi Sekine & Koji Iwasaki defeated Kazuaki Mihara & SAGAT when Sekine pinned SAGAT with the Ryusetsu (10:52).
2. 3 Way Match: Ryu Gouma defeated Hi69 and Kikutaro when Gouma submitted Kikutaro with a Ground Cobra Twist (11:58).
3. Hardcore Match: Terry Boy defeated Hiroshi Fukuda with the Spinning Toe Hold (11:48).
4. Masamune defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Kaminarikiri (13:13).
5. Hardcore Cage 6-Man Tag Team Match: Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Daichi Kazato defeated FUMA, Madoka & Yusuke Kubo when Kodaka pinned FUMA with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the cage (24:50).

BASARA and Kotetsu Gundan went to war in a 6-Man Tag Cage Match. The rules were two members of a team had to escape the cage and the remaining member needed to pin, submit or knock out an opponent to win the match. Kyohei Wada was the man put in charge of the match as all 6 wrestlers entered the cage. Kotetsu Gundan started off in control when Madoka attacked Isami Kodaka with a bamboo sword while his team mates threw their opponents into the cage. Madoka quickly tried to escape but was told to come back down by Yusuke Kubo because it was too early to stop beating up their enemies. Kodaka grabbed the bamboo sword and fired back at the Kotetsu team. Takumi Tsukamoto’s Superplex to Madoka was blocked but when Madoka followed up with a Missile Dropkick he was whacked in mid-air with a massive hammer. Tsukamoto took the opportunity to be the first wrestler to escape the cage. Kotetsu Gundan regained control because of the numbers advantage. Madoka gave Daichi Kazato a Fire Thunder onto a table. It didn’t break but Madoka didn’t care. He escaped the cage to make it 4 wrestlers left in the ring. Kazato was next to climb the cage but took a moment to decide if he should escape or Moonsault back onto everyone in the cage. Kazato went with the Moonsault and hit his target. Even better, Kazato had enough time to recover and crawl out of the cage through the door. Kodaka was the last man on his team so he couldn’t escape to win. FUMA ordered Kubo to escape the cage while he held Kodaka back. So the final stage of the match was between Kodaka and FUMA. FUMA went for the Heavy Metal Hammer but Kodaka surprised him by smashing Madoka’s ukulele over his head. Kodaka placed a ladder on top of FUMA and hit the Diving Double Knee Drop but it left him in great pain. FUMA hit the Heavy Metal Hammer and the Heavy Metal Anthem but Kodaka would not stay down. Kodaka climbed to the top of the cage and hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on FUMA and that was enough to end the match. Afterwards Kodaka told Madoka he would reimburse him for the ukulele he broke. He was told the ukulele cost 30,000 yen and in response said he might have to take money out of the upcoming tournament prize to pay for it. A defeated FUMA told Kodaka “You are also metal!” Kodaka didn’t take that as a compliment and flipped FUMA a middle finger. He then climbed the turnbuckle and did the Diving Double Knee Drop onto the unbroken table. He isn’t metal, he’s hardcore!

Kodaka invited Masamune to team with him on the 3rd May show in Miyagi.

MEN’S Teioh returned to his Terry Boy persona for a Hardcore Match with Hiroshi Fukuda. Despite the special occasion Fukuda did not hold back and busted open Terry after an ambush belt attack. Fukuda did the Perfect Plex off of a ladder but Terry kicked out of the pin. Terry used the ladder himself to give Fukuda the Calf Branding and then submitted him with the Spinning Toe Hold.

BASARA announced its first tournament called Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. It is a round robin tournament with two blocks of five wrestlers each. The winners of both groups will face each other in the final with 500,000 yen as the grand prize. The money comes from Kodaka’s savings apparently. Block A has Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu, SAGAT and Yusuke Kubo. Block B has FUMA, Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato, Ryu Gouma and Hiroshi Fukuda. The tournament begins on 1st May and ends on 23rd June.

5. UWA Middleweight Title: MEN’S Teioh (c) defeated Hiroshi Fukuda with a European Clutch (13:45).
*V1 for MEN’S Teioh.
6. Hardcore Match: Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Kodaka pinned Kubo with the Zeyyari (21:31).

BASARA’s first two Hardcore matches were held on this show. Isami Kodaka thought it was just the thing to put Kotetsu Gundan in their place. It wasn’t as violent as a Death Match but there were chairs, a ladder and a giant hammer involved. Kodaka scored the win but wasn’t finished with FUMA. He called him into the ring for an urgent “business meeting”. He told FUMA that his heavy metal obsession is unusual and quite frankly a middle finger to everyone else. FUMA said his costume is cool because it is made out of steel and metal! Kodaka challenged FUMA to a Steel Cage Match at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring in a few days time. FUMA said they could make it a 6-Man Tag Cage match. Kodaka accepted and said they should be able to squeeze six men into the cage.

MEN’S Teioh was brought over to BASARA to hold the first defence of his UWA Middleweight Title reign against Hiroshi Fukuda. The former members of World Men’s Club duked it out with Fukuda playing some dirty tricks along the way. He lured Teioh out of the ring to chase him in circles until he stopped him with a Shoulder Block. Teioh got revenge by throwing Fukuda shoulder first into the corner post. Teioh worked on the shoulder until Fukuda grabbed the referee and pulled him into the way. Fukuda hit the Perfect Plex but the referee slowly counted the pin in protest. Fukuda let go of the hold to complain but was rolled over into a European Clutch to lose the match. Fukuda took the loss in his stride and asked Teioh if they could have another fun match sometime. Teioh heard about BASARA lifting its ban on Hardcore match. He himself isn’t interested but he might know someone who could participate in a Hardcore Match again… Terry Boy! Fukuda Vs Terry Boy in a Hardcore Match was set for 14th April.

The other Hardcore Match was between Ryuichi Sekine and Madoka. Sekine brought out a guitar so Madoka found a ukelele in response. A pile of chairs was used by both as the landing zone for some big moves. Sekine smashed his guitar over Madoka and hit a chair-assisted Dragon Kick to win the match.

*Isami Kodaka & FUMA fail in V4. Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata become the 20th UWA World Tag Team Champions!

All the attention in Union is now on MEN’S Teioh and Kazushi Miyamoto. The two men both betrayed their tag team partners and joined forces. Teioh was teaming with Hiroshi Fukuda in what was Fukuda’s return to Union after injury. Miyamoto was teaming with Seiya Morohashi, a partnership formed by their love of gym workouts. However they weren’t on the same page in the match and at one point collided with a double Clothesline that missed its intended target. Fukuda was about to give Morohashi the Perfect Plex when all of a sudden Teioh whacked him with a chair! The rest of the Union roster came to the rescue and chased Teioh away.

But Teioh made his presence felt again in the main event, this time with Miyamoto with him. The UWA World Tag Team Titles were on the line, Isami Kodaka & FUMA versus Shuji Ishikawa & Masato Shibata. In the dying moments of the match Teioh & Miyamoto ran in with steel chairs and attacked everyone. The match was called a No Contest (but is still officially a successful title defence) and Teioh gave some parting words before leaving.

The UWA Tag Title match was restarted and everyone went full throttle. Ishikawa caught FUMA’s kicks and hit him with Headbutt after Headbutt. One Splash Mountain later and we have new champions! Ishikawa said he was going to eat more and wants everybody to become even stronger.

Madoka’s infatuation with AV idol Harumi Tachibana went up to another level today. He proposed to her! Harumi immediately turned him down. Madoka was in denial and said he would give her time to think about it while he wrestled Daichi Kazato. Afterwards Harumi told him he was being unreasonable but Madoka said he will not give up!

Ryu Gouma is suffering from a vomiting bug and was pulled from the show. Emi Sakura took his place in Match #2.

Union will bring back the Get The Glory! tournament next month. The first tournament was held in October 2013 and was won by Shuji Ishikawa. This year the tournament will be take place in two shows on 22nd February. This time twelve wrestlers will enter.

It is recommended you listen to “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal as you read the results.

FUMA’s first ever death match was not as rosy as the name suggested. Shuji Ishikawa defeated the young wrestler in a 1,000 Roses Death Match where everything was covered in roses. Ishikawa thought it was fun while FUMA described the match as “doom and gloom” but he felt he came out as a stronger wrestler.

Naomi Susan announced the official creation of the Union MAX Championship. Susan wanted a name that was simple but represents how Union can go full force at any time. Shuji Ishikawa will face Russia’s Ivan Markov in Shinjuku FACE on 11th December to crown the first champion. Susan watched Isami Kodaka’s recent matches in Russia and was impressed with how much Markov has improved since his last visit to Japan, which is why he was selected to face Ishikawa.

Hiroshi Fukuda and MEN’S Teioh slowly bonded during their match together. Fukuda kept calling Teioh “Terry” and eventually “Terry Boy” as they wrestled. Teioh submitted Fukuda with the Spinning Toe Hold. The two reappeared after the Isami Kodaka Vs Menso~re Oyaji match. Fukuda sarcastically congratulated Kodaka for winning the match and then challenged him to a future KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Kodaka and Yuko Miyamoto already have title defences to prepare for so Naomi Susan called up Amon Tsurumi to sort it out. Fukuda named his new team Texas Tornado Broncos Tokyo.

SAGAT had his mouth stuffed with a banana while he teamed with Kyoko Kimura. Unfortunately, Kimura booted SAGAT in the face by accident, costing them the match against Cherry & Seiya Morohashi.

Ryu Gouma is the latest person to insert himself into the Idea Pocket shenanigans (minds out of the gutter please). He was added to the match as Mitomi Masayuki’s partner to make it a 2-on-1 match against Mio Shirai. Despite that, Shirai continues to grow her harem of Idea Pocket Divas by winning the services of Rola Mizusaki. Afterwards it was announced that the Aipoke World Title was declared vacant and a new champion will be crowned on 11/12.

An Australian martial artist named Richard Burn will make his Union debut on the 11/12 show. Burn has travelled the world in order to master many marial arts including taekwondo, capoeira, kick boxing and Jeet Kune Do. Burn greeted the fans and said he heard Japan has many strong fighters. His debut match will be against Daichi Kazato.
