Last July, Saki Akai won a Battle Royal and was rewarded the role of DDT General Manager for one day. She spent months thinking up ideas until she was finally ready to put a show together in Shinjuku FACE. She thought she would be on her own but everyone in DDT was happy to help and were willing to use all of her ideas. With their support, Akai described the preparations for the show were like playing with a toy box. It wasn’t a perfect show by her own admission. Akai rated it “60 Points” (I assume out of 100) and wished she could have given herself more talk time. But she wanted the show to be like a festival and she is glad that everybody had fun.

The amount of attention Akai was getting today created some jealousy amongst the DDT roster. During the opening introductions, Akai had to wear the Amon Tsurumi afro wig that represents the GM role. While she was speaking to the audience, Danshoku Dino tried to grab the afro. Akai stopped him and said that the afro will be up for grabs at the end of the show. Whoever wears the afro will be allowed to become the GM for one day but it must be used within one year. However when the main event ended Akai never brought up the match. Dino stepped in and reminded her about it. Fearing that everyone was about to gang up on her, Akai threw down the afro and said the next person to pick it up and wear it will win the GM rights. Everyone who was involved in the show fought over the afro. Even Hisaya Imabayashi snuck in to try and get his old role back. Akai and Makoto Oishi were the last two left standing but they knocked each other out. The afro ended up on Kazuki Hirata’s head and the referee counted to three. Hirata was declared the winner!

For the main event, each wrestler was given a fashion makeover to wear for their entrances. MAO wore a pink parka, Akito wore a poncho, KUDO wore rider gear, Shunma Katsumata was in a cap and T-shirt, Soma Takao wore a kimono while carrying and umbrella and Konosuke Takeshita was covered in a fur coat. Their regular wrestling gear were all on underneath so when the match started it was business as usual. The winning team were rewarded with a hair care set from the show’s sponsor.

Although Akai didn’t have an official match on the show, her close friend Saki-sama was there with the rest of NEO Biishiki-gun to make up for it. Their opponents T2HiJoshi introduced their secret weapon Kazuko Higuchi who came out wearing bunny ears and a pink dress. Higuchi gave a rose to Yukio Saint Laurent and confessed her love to him. He hit her and threatened to stab her with an injection. Higuchi powered out of his grip and tore her dress off in anger. Higuchi went on a rampage, clearing the ring until Yukio stopped her by sticking the injection in her forehead. Saki-sama hit Kazuko Hirata with the Two Stage Face Kick to win the match. She called her opponents truly ugly, especially the one that turned into a monster halfway through the match.

Everybody in Match #3 was given glasses of champagne to drink while they wrestled. A table was set up next to the ring so they could get their drinks refilled. They all drank glasses after every kickout then argued with each other about being drunk. Jun Kasai asked Daisuke Sasaki why he didn’t bring the DDT Extreme Title with him to the ring. DJ Nira then convinced everyone to form a human tower so Kasai could hit the Pearl Harbour Splash but the tower collapsed. Tetsuya Endo tried to do a Moonsault but overshot his target and missed. Sasaki then decided to put Daisuke Kiso in the Crossface Lock while Nira did Elbow Drops to Inoue Mic. The match got so out of control that Yukinori Matsui stepped in and declared a no contest. There was no accurate match time because Mic was distracted by Nira’s attack so DDT just assumes it lasted around 15 minutes.

Aja Kong was not impressed by all of the wrestlers impersonating her in the tribute Battle Royal. She refused to participate and spent the match doing commentary at the broadcast table. She buried the match by complaining about the colour of Makoto Oishi’s face paint being wrong and the match quality dropping when Gorgeous Matsuno entered the ring. She then watched on in disbelief at Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine reenacting the time when Kong cut off Bison Kimura’s hair. Maki Ito got into the spirit of things by scaring HARASHIMA with a loud scream. When Ito took out a banana to make fun Kong’s name, Aja had enough and entered the match with a steel can in hand! Kong cleaned out the ring but Ito stood up to her and even gave her a Headbutt! Kong shrugged it off and pinned Ito with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Oishi tried to sneak attack Kong but he got the can placed over his head and he was knocked out with the Uraken for his troubles. Dino congratulated Kong for winning and asked if he could become Aja Kong II. She called him rude and knocked him out with the Uraken.

Everybody in the opening 6 Way Match was dressed as some sort of delinquent. They all tried to intimidate each other and fought dirty when it was time to wrestle. But it wasn’t all nasty. Nobuhiro Shimatani took a time out to tell Yoshiko how much he likes her. Yukio Sakaguchi interrupted the moment by attacking Yoshino. Shimatani then got singled out and was attacked by all the others until Yoshiko pinned him with the Diving Senton.

Mizuki Watase was so jealous of everybody in their main event getting their hair and make-up done that he went and got a makeover too. All it led to was Daiki Shimomura playing with Watase’s hair while they wrestled.

Konosuke Takeshita returned to the Osaka building where he attended DDT shows as a child. Although now instead of Danshoku Dino terrorising him it is now Shuji Ishikawa doing it. DAMNATION beat ALL OUT in the main event where Takeshita received more damage to his waist and lower back. With The Great Homo nowhere to be seen, Tetsuya Endo was able to win the match for his team. Ishikawa told Takeshita to come at him with all of his strength at Sumo Hall. In return he will do everything he can to crush him. Daisuke Sasaki reminded Ishikawa that he is banned from singing until Sumo Hall. His karaoke hobby began here back in January and Sasaki hasn’t forgotten the nightmare he got from listening to it. Sasaki complained about Takeshita missing shows because of his injury while DAMNATION doesn’t have any time to rest. DAMNATION has to practice singing karaoke along with Mad Paulie preparing an extraordinary dance routine!

The wave of momentum that Kazusada Higuchi was stopped dead thanks to a HARASHIMA Buzzsaw Kick. The strike knocked Higuchi out but he regained consciousness while HARASHIMA celebrated. Higuchi was so mad over what happened that he attacked HARASHIMA at ringside and threw chairs at him. HARASHIMA escaped into the ring while other wrestlers tried to calm down Higuchi to little effect. HARASHIMA rubbed it in by accepting the match prize from the show sponsor with a big smile on his face.

Mizuki Watase attended the Ganbare☆Wrestling show held earlier in the day and was impressed with the main event where Ken Ohka refused to submit to Magnitude Kishiwada. Inspired by the bout, Watase wanted to wrestle in a Give Up Only Match. If his team lost then he won’t ask for the stipulation again. His idea ended with a bad result when he gave up to a lewd Triangle Choke from Danshoku Dino.

KUDO showed more fire than usual thanks to the recent performances against him by Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno. Umeda said he finally got a taste of KUDO’s real power today. Ueno said even though he was pinned, he wasn’t burned out. He’ll be ready to win their remaining matches leading up to Sumo Hall.

Sanshiro Takagi and MAO continued to fight each other during the Falls Count Anywhere 8-Man Tag. Takagi also tried to set off another Anal Explosion in Nobuhiro Shimatani but MAO stopped him. Chinsuke Nakamura made his entrance up on the balcony but found his way to the ring eventually. Takagi dragged Shimatani over to a table by the stage entrance. He then climbed the entrance gate and dove onto Shimatani, putting him through the table to win the match.

Ethan Page attacked Naomi Yoshimura with a High Kick and a Big Boot after the 4 Way Match.

Shortly after the show ended there were a couple of Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes in the venue. The belt went from Soma Takao to Kazuki Hirata to Yuni to Makoto Oishi. Mizuki Watase tried to get the belt but Oishi escaped.

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.

1. Masahiro Takanashi, Antonio Honda & Samara defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Samara pinned Hirata with a Crucifix Pin (8:44).
2. 3 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Tetsuya Endo and MAO when Takao pinned MAO with the Official Endless Waltz (6:39).
3. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Yuki Ueno when Yoshimura pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (9:04).

6. Road To KO-D! Nagoya, Love Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Sasaki submitted Akito with La Mistica Crossover Facelock (20:11).

A Low Blow led to Daisuke Sasaki getting the Crossover Facelock on Akito to end the main event. Sasaki reminded Mad Paulie that he is banned from singing and dancing until Shuji Ishikawa beats Konosuke Takeshita for the KO-D Openweight Title at Sumo Hall next month. Since Ishikawa couldn’t sing, he instead told the crowd that Tetsuya Endo is intentionally growing his hair out for a new style. This embarrassed Endo.

Mizuki Watase was all business for his match against HARASHIMA. He wanted to show how much he has grown since their last match together and believed it would be enough to become the number one guy in DDT. Sadly for him, HARASHIMA drilled him with a Hurricane Driver and hit the Somato to win the match.

Danshoku Dino argued that Shuten-dōji are not back to full strength just because Kota Umeda returned from injury. He also complained about CyberAgent banning his Danshoku Nightmare VR move. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to calm him down but Dino didn’t care anymore and gave him the Nightmare VR. He then used the move on KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi during the match. Shuten-dōji got revenge by forcing Dino to do the move on his tag partner Kouki Iwasaki, leaving easy pickings for KUDO to finish him off.

The finish to Match #3 had Naomi Yoshimura attacking Yuki Ueno with a chair while Keisuke Okuda distracted the referee. Yoshimura then pinned Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb.

Samara battled Kazuki Hirata’s dancing with her own Bollywood dancing. The Bollywood dance was so powerful that it made everyone else join in with her instead of Hirata’s dance. Samara then rolled up Hirata for the three count then everyone went back to dancing.

5. YaroZ Specialty! Special 4 Way Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Danshoku Dino, Antonio Honda and Kikutaro when Sekine pinned Dino with a School Boy (9:34).
6. Naomi Kingdom (YaroZ) Vs BOYZ All Out Fight! Two: Kazusada Higuchi, Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi defeated Makoto Oishi, Mizuki Watase & Konosuke Takeshita when Ohka pinned Oishi with the Fire Spear (14:07).

The YaroZ returned but so too did their feud with BOYZ. The special guest gravure model Shihomi Yoshino was kidnapped by Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase during the show so it was up to Kazusada Higuchi, Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi to rescue her. The BOYZ had a secret weapon though. It wasn’t the towels they were wrestling in, it was Konosuke Takeshita as their mystery partner in the main event! But the combined power of manliness led the YaroZ to victory. Higuchi gave Oishi a Choke Slam, Ihashi followed up by doing the Kamigoe for the first time and Ohka finished it off with the Fire Spear. Oishi apologised on behalf of his team after the match but it was a trap to drop their guard so Takeshita could attack them. Saoru Anou, Samara and Nao Kakuta came to the rescue and sent the BOYZ packing. Higuchi invited Yoshino out for a drink after the show. She said yes but her manager came out and pulled her away from the ring complaining about how her client was treated today. Higuchi passed the invite over to the other women but they all turned him down. The rest of the YaroZ blamed Higuchi for ruining the show until Yoshino came back. She wanted to stop everyone from fighting and did so by stripping down to her swimsuit. Ohka thanked her because swimsuits make the world become peaceful. The other YaroZ had to hold him back because he was getting too excited.

The winner of the 4 Way Match would be given the right to date one of the female wrestlers who competed earlier in the show. Danshoku Dino pointed out he is gay so they agreed to let him date Yuki Ueno if he won. Dino was on track to win the match by setting Antonio Honda up for the Danshoku Driver but Ryuichi Sekine School Boy’d him for the flash three count. Sekine’s date prize would be decided by an entrance roulette performed by the women. When Sekine pressed the button it stopped on Cherry, much to his dismay. Cherry tried to flirt with him but Sekine turned Stone Cold, gave her a Stunner and drank some cans of beer afterward.

Nobuhiro Shimatani was originally supposed to be in the Kickboxing Match but he had to miss the show because of appendicitis. That may have been the best thing for him because Kohei Sato beat the hell out of his replacement Kazuki Hirata. The ring girl Shihomi Yoshino promised to take off a piece of clothing after every round until she was down to her swimsuit. No man in the building wanted to miss this so everyone did what they could to prevent the fight from being stopped even though Hirata was getting knocked out over and over. When it was clear that Hirata could not continue, there was a dash to find another replacement. One of the YaroZ MCs Brother Mon was forced to get into the ring against his will. He dodged a punch that hit Yukinori Matsui instead, knocking out the referee. Mon immediately gave up out of fear. A riot was about to break out among the wrestlers when Yoshino stopped all of them and promised to reveal the rest of her swimsuit. However her striptease was interrupted by the BOYZ wrestlers and they kidnapped her, leading to the main event showdown mentioned above.

Video staff member DT-YUTA returned to the ring for his first match in around nine years. He and his colleague Yumehito Imanari volunteered to fight against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi, mostly so they could take out their frustrations on their bosses. They attacked with chairs until Takagi & Owashi fought back. Takagi choked Imanari against the ropes while demanding him to update the DDT UNIVERSE archive. His comments angered one of the other staff members Ryohei Fukuda in the audience and spurred him to confront Takagi in the ring. Takagi kicked him down. As this was going on, Owashi swung a broom at Imanari but missed and hit Takagi instead. Fukuda then threw powder into Takagi’s eyes, YUTA Dropkicked Takagi and Imanari rolled him over in a School Boy for the three count. When the match was over Imanari & YUTA complained to Takagi about their low wages. Their list of demands included a higher salary, more overtime offers and improved workplace treatment. Fukuda also asked Takagi to create an environment that will allow DDT’s video staff to be more creative. Doing so will bring out their talents more. Takagi came up with an idea. On 23rd April in Shin-Kiba 1st RING, the DDT Video Staff will organise and produce their own show!

Kikutaro offered to be the assistant referee for the women’s tag match. Cherry felt upstaged by Samara’s Indian dancing so she attacked her. When Samara, Anou and Kakuta all ganged up on Cherry to stomp on her, Kikutaro ruled it was fair and joined in. Kikutaro’s behaviour later turned perverted and Kakuta kicked him between the legs in self defence. Tetsuya Koda was still there to continue the match as the official referee.

The two teams in the opening match were fighting over an erotic magazine. A box of tissues also found its way into the match.

7. The Mountain Of Akagi Is Far Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie when Akito submitted Paulie with the Perfect Figure 4 Leg Lock (14:46).

In the first preview of the “JUDGEMENT 2018” main event, ALL OUT beat DAMNATION but neither Konosuke Takeshita or Shuji Ishikawa were part of the finish. Both of them wound up outside the ring after Takeshita Clotheslined Ishikawa over the ropes. Akito took down Mad Paulie after targeting his legs and trapped him in the Perfect Figure 4 Leglock to win. Akito told Takeshita afterwards he will support him on the front line leading up to Sumo Hall. Takeshita said he got to train against the power of Ishikawa’s Lariats as well as his Knee Strikes today. They then invited Shunma Katsumata into the ring to talk about his upcoming DDT Extreme Title match on 25th February. Takeshita ended the show by announcing the main event for Korakuen Hall on 25th February. He is teaming up with HARASHIMA to take on Ishikawa and Daisuke Sekimoto!

Although Kazusada Higuchi’s team lost today, he still gestured at HARASHIMA that he will take his KO-D Tag Team Title belt. Higuchi is facing Naomichi Marufuji one on one in a preview of the tag title match.

Kazuki Hirata complained to Danshoku Dino about his matchmaking for their trios bout. Hirata didn’t want to team with his usual T2Hide partners because he thinks they have no future. There is a new generation in DDT featuring wrestlers like Keisuke Ishii, Mizuki Watase and himself. Based on these comments, Dino changed the match to himself, Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi against Hirata, Ishii & Watase in a battle between two generations. Dino’s team won but Watase had something to say afterwards. The New Generation weren’t able to beat the Super Generation today. But when Watase returns to Maebashi he promises to advance beyond the Super Generation! The two sides agreed to a rematch when DDT returns to Maebashi.

Daisuke Sasaki tried to flirt with Samara during the 3 Way Tag Match by asking her to make children with him. Samara was disgusted and pushed him away. He tried to give her the Vietnam Driver II but Joey Ryan saved her with a Super Kick to Sasaki. The match broke down until Tetsuya Endo and Masahiro Takanashi were left in the ring. Endo countered the Takatonic into the Torture Rack Bomb to win the match for DAMNATION.

Makoto Oishi was able to pin Antonio Honda with a European Clutch after Honda missed the Diving Fist Drop.

Kota Umeda and Yuki Ueno continue to go after each other and had to be kept apart after their match again.
