DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAN~”, 04/05/2018
Miyagi Yume Messe West Wing Hall
301 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Toru Owashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Sakaguchi pinned Shimatani with the PK (6:29).
2. 3 Way Match: Hiratimo Dragon defeated Antonio Honda and Tsuyoshi Kikuchi by Disqualification when Kikuchi unmasked Dragon (10:06).
3. HARASHIMA & Soma Takao defeated Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno when Takao pinned Oishi with the Official Endless Waltz (11:44).
4. Dirty Single Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Mad Paulie ended in a No Contest (8:09).
5. Shigehiro Irie, Mizuki Watase & Jason Kincaid defeated Keisuke Ishii, Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki when Irie pinned Iwasaki with the Beast Bomber (9:27).
6. Born In Shiroishi Tetsuya Endo Triumph! DAMNATION Vs Shuten-dōji!: Tetsuya Endo defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Shooting Star Press (16:01).
7. Osaka City Origin MAO Local Triumph! Miyagi Specialty Special Tag Match: Kazusada Higuchi & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when MAO pinned Katsumata with a Cannonball 450 (20:01).

MAO thanked Kazusada Higuchi for providing strong support as part of their main event victory. Even though the show was in MAO’s home city he didn’t get a hero’s welcome from the crowd. He told them that broke his heart.

Tetsuya Endo dedicated his win over Masahiro Takanashi to Daisuke Sasaki. He also isn’t happy that he has to replace Sasaki as Soma Takao’s opponent this Sunday. According to Endo he never agreed to take the match.

Keisuke Ishii avoided Shigehiro Irie as much as he could during their trios match. Irie said DDT is giving them several opportunities to fight before their KO-D Openweight Title match so Ishii can’t run away from him forever.

Danshoku Dieno’s urges got out of control and caused his match with Mad Paulie to be called off. Paulie, Yukinori Matsui and Yuki Iino were all targeted by Dieno.

In the 3 Way Match Antonio Honda unmasked Hiratimo Dragon by accident. In a panic Honda threw the mask to Tsuyoshi Kikuchi. Kikuchi wore the mask and tried to continue wrestling but the referee disqualified him and awarded Hiratimo the victory.

MAO is added to the Smile Squash side to take on the whole of Shuten-dōji. With Yukio Sakaguchi now in that match, Danshoku Dieno gets Hiratimo Dragon all to himself.

6. Maji Manji Big Three Single Match: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Yuki Ueno
7. Maji Manji Big Three Single Match: HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo

Makoto Oishi is tired of being Dieno’s lackey or at least he is whenever there is a cute idol watching at the commentary table. Dieno has been made a fool of in every episode so far. Can he end his Maji Manji losing streak here?

DDT “AUDIENCE 2018”, 20/05/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Shunma Katsumata
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii

It’s been loss after loss after loss for Shunma Katsumata recently. Konosuke Takeshita doesn’t get it. Katsumata was supposed to improve as a wrestler when he joined ALL OUT but the results just aren’t there. Takeshita is looking forward to wrestling in matches without championship consequences for now. He decided to challenge his stablemate to a match to see if Katsumata really is good enough to team with him.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno

Kota Umeda gets another crack at SekiGuchi and the KO-D Tag Team Titles. This time Yuki Ueno wants to join him. They won the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles together so they have a chance here.


Irie Brings In A New Dawn, Will Things Change?

April 30, 2018

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #3”, 01/05/2018

5. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Kota Umeda & MAO

Unless it’s being done to attract the audience early, surely Shigehiro Irie’s match should be placed later in the card now that he is the champion. The match is also meant to push his title defence against Keisuke Ishii.

Smile Squash gets a shot at revenge on DAMNATION after the heel group tried to recruit HARASHIMA then immediately attacked him.

Kendo Kashin is still sending friendly text messages to the DDT offices that are meant for Gota Ihashi.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #4”, 08/05/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal: Saki Akai (c) Vs Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda Vs Gorgeous Matsuno Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Makoto
2. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 2nd Match ~ Hardcore Match: Ryuji Ito Vs Kota Umeda

Kota Umeda’s trial continues with a clash against Big Japan’s own Ryuji Ito.

Joshi wrestler Makoto appears in DDT for the first time in a very long while. She has been in sub-brands like Ganbare☆Wrestling and New Beijing a few years ago but I can’t remember when she was last in DDT proper.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONKOTSU~”, 13/05/2018
Hakata Star Lane

1. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs KUDO

HARASHIMA wants to avenge his defeat to KUDO last year. He is willing to put his newly won DDT Extreme Title on the line to do so.

Yuto Aijima and Azul Dragon will be on the show.

DDT “AUDIENCE 2018”, 20/05/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii

Irie’s first defence is against an old friend. A former friend too. They held the All Asia Tag Team Titles together but that’s all in the past. Ishii has only beaten Irie twice in singles matches but that was early in their careers. Since then Irie has gotten the upper hand and has won more of their matches against each other. Both are champions now and currently feel they are the best they’ve ever been.

DDT “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 5 ~MAY I KNOW THE RAIN~”, 27/05/2018

Schedule For Golden Week 2018, Akito Injured, Kincaid Coming To DDT

April 26, 2018

DDT “MAX BUMP 2018”, 29/04/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Mad Paulie Vs Kouki Iwasaki
1. 3 Way Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo Vs Jason Kincaid & Mizuki Watase Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Shunma Katsumata

5. Cherry’s Last DDT Match!: Danshoku Dino, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Cherry, Francoise☆Takagi & Makoto Oishi
6. DDT Extreme Title – Regular Rules: Yuko Miyamoto (c) Vs HARASHIMA
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie

Akito suffered a ruptured biceps tendon in his right arm during last Sunday’s main event. He is expected to miss several months. With this injury the card for “MAX BUMP 2018” has been changed around not just to accommodate his absence but also to feature a debuting foreign wrestler.

Shigehiro Irie promised to bring over a friend of his from America to DDT. The only hint he gave was by calling his friend “The Gift”. It has since been announced that Jason Kincaid is coming to DDT. Kincaid is a 14 year veteran and had a lengthy 5 year reign as the NWA Southeastern Heavyweight Champion. Kincaid will be teaming with the person who seems to be Irie’s only friend left in DDT, Mizuki Watase as part of a 3 Way Tag. That match replaces the originally planned ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION tag team bout that Akito was meant to be in.

The DDT Extreme Title match will just be a regular pro wrestling match with no extra stipulations added. Yuko Miyamoto made this decision because he has never had a proper one on one match with his friend. He strongly wants to find out if he can beat HARASHIMA under a normal ruleset.

DDT gives Keisuke Okuda the limelight for his return home.

2. Tradition Of The Soul ~ Loser Gets Ketsu Bat Match: Danshoku Dino Vs Miyu Yamashita
3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Kota Umeda & MAO

Kendo Kashin has been sending daily messages to DDT addressed to Gota Ihashi. In these messages Kashin talks about drinking tea (every message included this), checking his blood cholesterol level, recommending 1,000 hindu squats, losing sleep because he keeps thinking about Ihashi, talking about a train accident that happened near his home, eating an Siberian onion and describing his experience with using Uber. What the fuck is up with this guy?

2. Department Of Civil Engineering, Hachinohe Institute Of Technology (Now Disappearing) Makoto Oishi Triumphant Return! Aomori Specialty Special Single Match: Makoto Oishi Vs Konosuke Takeshita

A big match for Makoto Oishi. Maybe he can finally get something of a new direction because Shunma Katsumata and MAO have left him for dust ever since the NωA split.

The DNA Vs Naomi Kingdom grudge continues. Both Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki have been able to get wins over the enemy unit in singles matches but under tag matches it’s been pretty much all Naomi Kingdom victories save for a DQ loss here and there.


DDT “DRAMATIC DOKUGANRYU! 2017” Results

November 12, 2017

DDT “DRAMATIC DOKUGANRYU! 2017”, 12/11/2017
Miyagi Yume Messe West Wing Hall
286 – No Vacancy

1. Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Irie pinned Hirata with an Electric Chair (7:33).
2. Shuten-dōji Vs NωA!: Masahiro Takanashi & Kota Umeda defeated Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata when Takanashi pinned Oishi with the Hangover!! (7:08).
3. Memory Of Wonderful Wrestler Vs Gongitsune!: Keisuke Ishii defeated Antonio Honda with a Frankensteiner (8:31).
4. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Danshoku Dino & Nobuhiro Shimatani by TKO when Sakaguchi used the Sleeper Hold With Mustard On Shimatani (8:38).
5. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Iwasaki with the Surprise Rose (12:06).
6. The Best One Is Shiroishi City! No, It Is Osaki City! Miyagi Specialty Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Mike Bailey & MAO when Endo pinned MAO with the Shooting Star Press (16:44).

In the Battle of Miyagi Tetsuya Endo and MAO fought representing their respective hometowns, Shiroishi City for Endo and Osaki City for MAO. The match sponsor presented a 30kg bag of rice to MAO & Mike Bailey before the match began as a gift of encouragement. Unfortunately for them, Endo got the better of MAO and pinned him with the Shooting Star Press. Endo called out to Bailey after the match and told him the DDT ring is not his to love. He asked if his Japanese has gotten any better. If not then Bailey should study more because the other Canadian Endo knows can speak it fluently. Daisuke Sasaki cooled down the situation by suggesting Endo and MAO get along and unite for the good of the Miyagi prefecture. It was a trap and the DAMNATION wrestlers attacked MAO & Bailey. Sasaki then said he doesn’t know anything about Miyagi but Shiroishi is the best! Endo told MAO to return to the Osaki countryside.

ALL OUT and HARASHIMA came close to trading blows again after their latest match together. The two sides held up their respective championships belts during their face off after the match ended.

Danshoku Dino was shocked to discover that one of the fans he kissed during his entrance was a woman! When he recovered from the shock he changed subject to Nobuhiro Shimatani. He found out that somebody covered Shimatani’s mouth guard in mustard before the match. Dino decided to become “Sherlock Homo” so he can solve the mystery. Shimatani accused Yukio Sakaguchi for being behind the prank. Dino declared if their team could beat Shuten-dōji then that proves Sakaguchi is guilty. But if Shuten-dōji wins then Shimatani would have to apologise to him. Sakaguchi got his hands on the mustard tube and shoved it into Shimatani’s face during a Sleeper Hold. Yukinori Matsui thought the situation was so dangerous to Shimatani’s well being that he stopped the match and declared Shuten-dōji the winners. Sakaguchi was still in a sour move after the match but he washed the bad taste out of his mouth with sake.

The earliest prediction of his return is in three months time but that is likely to change.

There is a 28cm height difference between Kazusada Higuchi and Nobuhiro Shimatani. That’s the selling point of their match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Maho Kurone Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Hyper Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Saki-sama Vs Azusa Takigawa
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miraclians are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Daisuke Sasaki

No word yet on if the main event will be for the Indy World Jr. Title. I expect so if Sasaki beats Diego. Shinichiro Tominaga deserves it after his Amateurs Vs Professionals comparison at the last show.

It’s a Toryumon reunion of sorts for Ken Ohka’s 16th Anniversary.

5. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka Vs X

Yumehito Imanari is inserting himself into the Chikara Vs J-Soul Pandita III IV match with something to prove. He describes Pandita as a creature coming from a wonderful bloodline that stretches back 32 years. But Imanari’s father recently established a new spiritual venture called Rainbow House to heal people’s souls. Imanari finds it a bit odd. He has since visited his father and it felt to him like he was a complete stranger. However he was also impressed by his dad’s newly found vitality. So Imanari wants to spread his dad’s message of posterity and prove how strong the family bloodline is against others. Chikara and Pandita are just the kind of opponents he was looking for.
