6. Kota Umeda Local Triumph! Kumamoto Specialty Special Tag Match: Kota Umeda & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Umeda pinned Katsumata with the Umeda Driver (20:37).
He’s been plagued with injuries over the last year but thanks to all of his hometown supporters today Kota Umeda pulled off a big win with MAO against ALL OUT. A Thrust Kick from Shunma Katsumata was meant for Umeda but it hit Takeshita instead. From there MAO gave Katsumata a Half Nelson Suplex and Umeda hit his finisher for the three count. Umeda hopes that the coming period between today’s show and the next time DDT comes to Kumamoto will not be heavily affected with injuries.
The see-saw of results between Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi isn’t stopping anytime soon. Today was Sasaki’s turn to pin Takanashi. He was able to block the Takatonic and hit Now Or Never for a nearfall. Takanashi kicked out of that but couldn’t kick out of the Vietnam Driver II.
Mizuki Watase Double Stomped on Kazuki Hirata’s glasses at the start of their match. Hirata went into despair when he put them on but then pulled out a replacement pair of glasses from his tights. Watase rolled him up while he was dancing. Hirata countered the roll up into his own cradle but Watase rolled back on top and got the three count. Hirata looked on the bright side and praised Watase beating him, which Watase didn’t expect.
