Three of the seven shows in the D-Ou Grand Prix group stage are now completed. But the headline match was all about the hometown hero Hiroshi Yamato. Everyone in the match did the X pose with their arms to mimic Yamato’s Sliding X move. Minoru Tanaka did the move into Shunma Katsumata’s crotch in the corner. Jiro Kuroshio did an X shaped Double Axe Handle to Yamato. HARASHIMA came in on a hot tag until Konosuke Takeshita stopped him with a Blue Thunder Bomb. The match came down to Yamato and Katsumata. Yamato hit the Sliding X, a Spider German Suplex, a German Suplex and a Lariat. After all of that Yamato was able to pin Katsumata with a Northern Lights Bomb at the end. Yamato talked about his 10th Anniversary show from two years ago. He couldn’t wrestle on it because he was injured at the time. Today he was able to wrestle in his hometown thanks to the local fanbase and also the DDT wrestlers that he considers his seniors. He would like to continue exciting the different regions DDT holds shows in.

In the Grand Prix, Yukio Sakaguchi’s match today was even quicker than yesterday’s. However this time he came out on the loser’s end. Daisuke Sasaki played dirty by hiding behind the referee, having Mad Paulie grab Sakaguchi’s foot and kicking Sakaguchi below the belt to roll him up for the three count. Sakaguchi cursed the result because Sasaki beat him the same way back in the King Of DDT tournament earlier this year.

The undefeated Masato Tanaka is now speeding ahead of everyone else in the B Block. His victory over Bull James means he is currently two wins ahead of his closest rivals. Tanaka couldn’t match the strength of James so he tried to attack him with chairs around ringside. James withstood the attack and brought him back into the ring, taking control when Tanaka could not Body Slam him. James kicked out of the Super Fly but missed a Hip Drop. That left him vulnerable for the Sliding D, handing Tanaka the win. James felt it was an an honour to wrestle Tanaka. He said Tanaka fought for the ECW World Heavyweight Title 20 years ago and he still has that same strength 20 years later.

Yuki Iino gets his first win in a big way, hitting two Spears to put Tetsuya Endo away. Does this mean Iino has become stronger? If you ask Endo he would say no. Instead Endo believes it is he who is getting weaker. Iino’s next group match is against Chris Brookes. He does not want to fight him for 30 minutes like Endo did.

Brookes received a 30kg bag of rice for winning the Battle Royal.

7. Mizuki Watase Local Triumph! Obuse Specialty Special Tag Match: Koji Kanemoto & Keisuke Ishii defeated Mizuki Watase & Minoru Tanaka when Kanemoto pinned Watase with the Moonsault (26:18).

Mizuki Watase got a special hometown match as he got to team with Minoru Tanaka to take on Koji Kanemoto & Keisuke Ishii. Watase channelled Shigehiro Irie by hitting a Cannoball into Kanemoto in the bottom corner. Watase then hit the Back Drop but Kanemoto recovered and trapped Watase in an Anklelock. Watase escaped and traded Rock Punches with Kanemoto. Kanemoto got the upper hand, gave Watase a Falcon Arrow and pinned him with the Moonsault. Kanemoto said he rarely does the move in a place like Obuse but it was done to celebrate Watase’s 3rd Anniversary as a wrestler. Kanemoto also loves wrestling with Watase. Watase called Kanemoto his favourite wrestler and after this match, the greatest wrestler he has ever seen. If it takes another 5 or 10 years, Watase will some day beat Kanemoto. Watase also wants to continue wrestling Kanemoto for another 28 years so he promises not to retire until then.

Matches #1 and #6 had to be changed around because of a minor eye injury Tetsuya Endo suffered at yesterday’s show. Soma Takao was bumped up to take Endo’s place in the 6-Man Tag. The opener turned into Kota Umeda now teaming with Nobuhiro Shimatani to beat his original partner Sanshiro Takagi and Takao’s replacement Gota Ihashi.

Jun Kasai likes many things about Obuse. The food is delicious, the air is clean and there are plenty of beauties around! He likes the place so much that he wants to live there starting tomorrow!

Keisuke Okuda flipped off Yuki Iino after their match.

2. Ethan Page defeated Tomoya Hirata with the Spinning Dwayne (9:30).
3. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda defeated Keisuke Okuda & Kengo by Disqualification when Okuda attacked the referee (10:33).
4. Minoru Tanaka defeated Mizuki Watase with the B”D”F (12:23).
5. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo defeated Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Shimatani with the Shonenba (11:36).
6. 1st Sanshiro Takagi DNA SUPER TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Kota Umeda & Shunma Katsumata when Iwasaki pinned Katsumata with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster (15:04).

Round 1 is in the books and is highlighted by the DNA/BASARA combination of Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu beating Kota Umeda & Shunma Katsumata. Nakatsu drilled Katsumata with a Head Kick then threw him over with a Dragon Suplex. Iwasaki finished him off with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster for the three count.

The Naomi Kingdom had mixed results in the first round but their presence was felt for sure. Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo eliminated Gran MilliMeters to advance to the semi final. However Keisuke Okuda & Kengo got themselves disqualified against Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda. Okuda & Kengo kept assaulting their opponents until the referee tried to stop them. They turned their attacks to the referee and got themselves DQ’ed as a result.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka were plagued by bumping into each other multiple times late in the opening match. Rising HAYATO got them to collide one more time and MAO hit Rekka with the Michinoku Driver I to win the match. Shiryu & Rekka argued with each other as they walked away from the ring. Backstage Rekka says Taiwan and China do not match. He now hates Chinese people and doesn’t want to team with a Chinese wrestler ever again!

The semi-finals on 5th April are MAO & Rising HAYATO Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo and Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu. MAO said his team will control DNA with young power. HAYATO usually doesn’t get many chances to wrestle inside Shin-Kiba 1st RING. He wants to win the tournament so he can wrestle there more often. Nakatsu told everyone he is only here to win the prize money.

Minoru Tanaka used his match against Mizuki Watase to prepare for his GHC Jr. Tag Team Title shot at the 11th March NOAH show. He went through his normal preparation by eating bento steak before the match. He was impressed by Watase and even believed he could have lost to him. Tanaka said he would like to wrestle him again then came up with an idea to have a tag team match next time. He is available to appear at “DNA 43” on 5th April.

7. DNA Corps Vs Naomi Kingdom Full Confrontation Single Third Match: Kota Umeda defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Umeda Driver (14:42).

Today’s show was headlined by a three match series between DNA and the Naomi Kingdom. In the first match Akira Jo beat MAO with a Low Blow and the Cross Rhodes. DNA evened the score when Kouki Iwasaki out-struck Keisuke Okuda and pinned him with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Okuda swore after the match that he would kill Iwasaki and get revenge. In the deciding contest, Kota Umeda beat Naomi Yoshimura. Umeda avoided the Throwaway Power Bomb and hit the Umeda Driver to win and end the series with a 2-1 victory for DNA! Umeda told all of the Naomi Kingdom they could face him one on one again any time. A tired Yoshimura whispered something into Jo’s ear to say to Umeda but Jo cackled into the microphone instead. Yoshimura took back the microphone and said he will see Umeda at the DNA Tag Team tournament that will begin next month.

Both Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase were put in Anklelocks by the Junior Stars in the finish to their match. Watase hasn’t had enough of Koji Kanemoto though, he wants another match against him. Kanemoto beat him back in July last year but even back then Watase told Kanemoto he would take as many tries necessary to beat him before he retires. Kanemoto smiled at the idea but Watase then gave the same challenge to Minoru Tanaka because it was Tanaka who made him submit today. Tanaka ignored him at first but Watase provoked him into coming back to the ring. Tanaka said he found spirit inside the ring today so he will accept Watase’s challenge on 7th March. He advised Watase to raise his pants up by as much as 3cm then left the ring.

The Chinese Impact used by Rekka & Choun-Shiryu is Shiryu’s Chinese Gory Bomb combined with a Diving Lariat to the back of the head by Rekka. Shiryu was invited by Rekka to enter the tag team tournament. Shiryu said he has been living in Japan for 14 years and will turn 40 years old this year. But today he felt as young and fresh as ever so he would be happy to join the tournament with Rekka.

The DNA Tag Team tournament is scheduled to begin on 7th March. Eight teams will be a part of it. The semi-finals and final will be held on 5th April. The two confirmed entries so far are Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda and Rekka & Choun-Shiryu.

6. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Isamuashi Ki (18:56).
*V1 for Isami Kodaka.

Ryuichi Sekine prepared himself for a today to be special. He was in proper wrestling gear, had his hair freshly dyed blonde and had his sights set on winning the Union MAX Title. Sadly for him Isami Kodaka had other ideas. The one move Sekine had that could definitely beat Kodaka was the Let’s Combine Crab Hold but Kodaka was able to either reach the ropes or avoid the move entirely. Sekine tried to combat Kodaka’s Isamuashi kicks with his own Middle Kicks but the champion would not be beaten. Both wrestlers were spent after the match but agreed that they had a fun match together. Kodaka announced his next title defence will take place in March next year. He was then interrupted by a voice asking “Can I be a bit greedy?” The voice was Fuminori Abe and he entered the ring. He said during his time here in BASARA he had wanted to test himself and find out how pure a wrestler he can be. He now wants a singles match with Kodaka to discover how far he has progressed although he was hesitant to ask until now. Kodaka asked Abe if he is certain he could beat him. Abe said he is. Kodaka accepted Abe’s challenge and decided he will put the MAX Title on the line against him on 14th December. Abe then pulled out an envelope. It was an invitation letter for the upcoming Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. He confessed that he stole it from Kodaka’s luggage while Kodaka went out for a smoke earlier. Abe wanted three things: a singles match with Kodaka, a Union MAX Title match and a place in the Budokai tournament. Kodaka promised to fulfill all three requests for Abe.

The 6-Man Tag was a battle between BASARA and HEAT-UP. It broke down to where Daichi Kazato and Kazuhiro Tamura were the ones left in the ring. Kazato had Tamura beaten with the Sister Abigail when Fuminori Abe broke up the pin and trapped Kazato in an Octopus Hold. Kazato submitted, making the HEAT-UP team the winners. Both Takumi Tsukamoto and Kazato were frustrated by the loss and both said the HEAT-UP wrestlers have no guts. Tsukamoto is also annoyed that HEAT-UP might be selling more posters than BASARA at shows.

Early on in the Ryota Nakatsu Vs Minoru Tanaka match, Tanaka threatened to break Nakatsu’s hobby horse. Other than that the two had a serious match. Tanaka escaped from Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and countered with a Jumping High Kick. Nakatsu still showed life after taking a Tiger Suplex and some Buzzsaw Kicks but was down and out after Tanaka gave him the B“D”F Diving Foot Stomp.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi seems to be turning over a new leaf since he lost the Union MAX Title. He hugged the referee Yuya Okada at the start of his match because it was so long since he last saw him. He also wished FUMA a “Merry Christmas” after Body Slamming him. Even though he and SAGAT lost the match to IRON PRIEST, he was still happy to see FUMA & Yusuke Kubo again too. He said the Trans-Am ★ Family and IRON PRIEST have been fighting each other all year so it was time for them to let bygones be bygones and shake hands. SAGAT pulled his hand back and shouted “Woooooo!” thinking Ryuichi would do the same but he was on his own. Ryuichi punched SAGAT for misbehaving and they then did the Heavy Metal hand signs with IRON PRIEST.

The reputation of Guts Ishijima and his Guts World promotion were put up to questioning by Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama and their court of law. Maruyama accused Ishijima of defying the Labour Standards Act by forcing his workers to have a pro wrestling mentality. Maruyama’s evidence was Daisuke retiring and Toshihiko Yoshino leaving the promotion. Ryu’s defence of Guts World was “It’s a nice group.” He asked Takumi Tsukamoto what he thought of the company because he wrestled there before. Tsukamoto said he wanted to quit. Yasu Urano gave a similar answer when he was asked the question. Ishijima described his post-show antics as “Showa Style” and it involved eating and drinking until they threw up. Fuminori Abe was asked about those drinking parties and he said he couldn’t remember much outside of losing his wallet. Ishijima invited both Ryu and Maruyama to wrestle at a Guts World show. They all shook hands until Ryu and Maruyama attacked Ishijima. He fought them off with a Double Lariat and then pinned Maruyama with the Facebuster. Judge Kyohei Wada declared Ishijima was innocent.

Akiyori Takizawa came here from ASUKA PROJECT for a rematch against Takato Nakano. Their previous match took place earler this month and just like then, Takizawa won the match. This time Takizawa used a Reverse Double Chickenwing submission called the Sleng Teng to make Nakano give up.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Gouma Ryu read through the line up of wrestlers entering the 3rd Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament being held in Korakuen Hall on 28th December. The entries so far include Yasu Urano, Isami Kodaka. Naoki Tanizaki, Yuko Miyamoto, Riho and Hideki Suzuki. Fuminori Abe would take a spot later in the show as already mentioned above.
