Due to the recent alliance between Sanshiro Takagi and the IWF (see below), Takagi’s match for this show has been changed. Sanshiro Takagi was supposed to team with Michael Nakazawa to wrestle Tanomusaku Toba & Tomomitsu Matsunaga. Now Takagi is teaming up with Ivan Markov & Bonnie while Nakazawa finds himself teaming with his original opponents.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Yasu Urano & Yuji Hino
7. KO-D Openweight Title: KUDO (c) Vs MIKAMI

A correction on yesterday’s update. The TKG Rogue Army and Russia’s KGB48 were actually joining forces, not declaring war on each other. Instead, Sanshiro Takagi is bringing together representatives of many international 48-strong Wrestling Idol groups to fight Homoiro Clover Z. This has created a 10-Man Tag Team match for New Year’s Eve in Korakuen Hall. On one side is the Homoiro team of Danshoku Dino and Makoto Oishi plus new Z members Gran Hamada, Akito & Hiroshi Fukuda. On the other side is Sanshiro Takagi (TKG Rogue Army), Vladamir Nagai (KGB48), Ivan Markov (KGB48), Poison JULIE Sawada (PJS48) and Hoshitango (SUMO48). Hikari Minami and Bonnie will both be at ringside cheering for their respective sides.

After his recent visit to Union, Katsuhiko Nakajima will now show up in DDT with his fellow Kensuke Office pal Satoshi Kajiwara. HARASHIMA & Takao Soma will be the DDT team for this match.

Takao’s Tag Trouble, Hirata’s Gonna Fale, President Pervert

October 14, 2011

DDT “FUTURE HEAVEN! IN NAGOYA 2011”, 30/10/2011
Nagoya Club Diamond Hall

1. HERO! Last DDT Match: HARASHIMA & HERO! Vs X & X
2. KO-D Tag Team Title Contendership: Antonio Honda & Yasu Urano Vs Takao Soma & Akito
3. Special Singles Match: Hikaru Sato Vs Danshoku Dino

Takao Soma isn’t very happy that Keisuke Ishii won an important championship in DDT before he did. After Ishii and Shigehiro Irie became the new KO-D Tag Team Champions in Sapporo, Soma told interviewers backstage that “It sucks that Ishii won a belt before me.” He was also upset that Ishii was the person chosen to team with Irie for the title match instead of himself. That is understandable since Soma and Irie had been doing very well as the TKG48’s resident tag team in DDT. Soma will be doing something about it and has picked Akito to form a new tag team in the hopes of getting a title shot in the distant future. However, they will face a difficult challenge in the forms of Antonio Honda & Yasu Urano. Both men are former KO-D Tag Team Champions and have been recently teaming together.

Kenny Omega, Shigehiro Irie, Daisuke Sasaki, Mr. #6, Toru Sugiura & DJ Nira are all confirmed to be taking part at this show.

DDT “PRESIDENT PERVERT! ~ LAST BIG WRESTLING MATCH ON THE STREET”, 04/11/2011
Tokyo Asakusa Flower Mansion

1. 3 Way Tag: Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa Vs Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei Vs Danshoku Dino & Chou-un Shiryu

The President Pervert in the show’s title is none other than Michael Nakazawa. He will be the special guest announcer for the event.

Chou-un Shiryu is looking forward to tangling with Munenori Sawa one last time before Sawa retires. Shiryu believes the only way Sawa could beat him was if he resorted to using Kung Fu for the match. The Brahman Brothers are the wild cards here and will no doubt be carrying a container filled with creepy crawlies for their opponents to suffer through.

BJW, 23/09/2011
Yokkaichi Australia Memorial Hall

Kasumigaura Ryokuchi Park & Yokkaichi Land & Water Falls Count Anywhere Free Weapons Death Match: Abdullah Kobayashi, Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa Vs Ryuji Ito, Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei

After the sad announcement earlier this week from Munenori Sawa about his plan to retire a few days after BattlArts closes down in November, he and Sanshiro Takagi only have a few months left to continue their “Daishacho Hentai” tag team. They will take a trip over to Big Japan Wrestling to team up with Abdullah Kobayashi to fight Ryuji Ito and the Brahman Bros in a Falls Count Anywhere match that sounds just like something Takagi & Sawa did during their “Greatest Title Run Ever”©.

The Apartment Pro Wrestling show took place somewhere in Tokyo today. Unfortunately I haven’t found out who took part and what the match was. However it was taped for DVD, which will be released next month. The match took place in an apartment building that is scheduled to be demolished later this year, which probably explains how DDT was able to do this show. DDT did post a picture taken of the hallway after the show finished. As you can see below, the place was wrecked by the time DDT was done with it.
