DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2017 ~ LET’S GO TO NEVERLAND AFTER RYOGOKU! ALTHOUGH IT IS REALLY A NATURELAND ~ DDT 20TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL EXTRA EDITION VOL. 1”, 03/09/2017
Yamanashi Natureland Om
200 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

Special 5 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo, Mike Bailey & MAO, Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani and Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin SM Ki-san when Takeshita pinned Shimatani with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a table in the pond (67:04).

The Yamanashi Natureland Om park was home to one of the craziest series of matches DDT have ever put together. So it was only natural for them to return for more mayhem as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. Five tag teams were pitted against each other for the free for all. Konosuke Takeshita & Diego were there for ALL OUT, Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo were representing DAMNATION and Pigging 2017 sent forth Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani. Mike Bailey & MAO kept their promise to team again after “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”. Rounding out the field were Sanshiro Takagi and Ippanjin SM Ki-san, who turned out to be Munenori Sawa wearing business attire and carrying a snowboard. Takagi convinced Sawa to come over by lying about a campsite BBQ being held today. Sawa still agreed to be a volunteer pro wrestler for the day when he found out he was duped.

The match began in the open area plaza. Sasaki & Endo were armed with water guns while Takeshita & Diego brought out a barbed wire baseball bat. Everyone agreed that they were going a little bit overboard. Of course, the match spread out around the park. Takagi took the snowboard and tried to slide down a hill but fell over. DAMNATION shoved the heads of the Pigging wrestlers into toilets over at the restroom area. Bailey & MAO climbed up to the roof of the cookhouse hut and Moonsaulted onto everyone below.

As the match followed up the mountain path, Takagi found a can of hair mousse. He came up with an idea to spray the mousse onto his opponents and then try to set the mousse on fire! Because you know, that’s the kind of idea sane people come up with. Kazusada Higuchi appeared in the distance dressed for sumo. He threw aside Takeshita and Sawa but Takagi scared him off with the fire mousse. Takagi then found a Pico Pico Hammer and came up with the bright idea of setting it on fire with the mousse! He calls his creation the Shining Hammer. Takeshita & Diego fought back with a trash can and a stop sign until Higuchi reappeared and sent them down the mountain path.

A chain of Figure Four Necklocks was formed down the path. Ihashi took advantage of the opportunity by rolling his body all the way down the chain. He and Shimatani then grabbed the cameraman Yumehito Imanari and carried him into a nearby hut as a hostage. All the other wrestlers were given firecrackers and Takagi warned the Pigging wrestlers that they were surrounded. They refused to let Imanari go so the firecrackers were shot at them until they fled.

Sawa found a scooter and drove it down to the plaza. DAMNATION decided to fight the scooter with a truck. They ran over the others including Sawa on the scooter until the one man that could stand up to them did so. Higuchi used his sumo strength to not only stop the truck but push it back! Endo crawled out of the window and kicked Highuchi, then did a Moonsault onto him from the top of the truck.

Ihashi returned to the fight as a Big Zam with Shimatani by his side firing firecrackers at everyone. Takagi came to the rescue as a Gundam and he threw a clock tower at Ihashi! Bailey & MAO stopped Takagi with stereo Corkscrew Kicks. Ihashi felt so overheated in his Big Zam costume that he took it off and jumped into a pond to cool off. Diego threw Shimatani onto Ihashi with a Death Valley Driver off the ledge. Sawa then hit Diego with the Shining Wizard from the rocks. MAO saw Ihashi floating in the pond and did the Cannonball 450 onto him. Takeshita then dove onto everybody with a Cross Body into the water. Finally, Takeshita & Diego brought a table into the pond. Takeshita gave Shimatani a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the table into the water to end the match after 67 minutes of craziness.

Welcome to The Future! DDT celebrated 20 years in business by running the main stage of Saitama Super Arena for “JUDGEMENT 2017”. In the main event the torch was passed as the 21 year old Konosuke Takeshita defeated HARASHIMA to become the KO-D Openweight Champion for the second time in his career. The biggest stage called for a major main event and both wrestlers delivered with a 30 minute long clash. HARASHIMA’s neck was targeted early and his title reign was under threat when Takeshita gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on the arena floor. HARASHIMA was left outside to get counted out but he returned on 18. He then turned the tables by avoiding a Dragon Suplex and attacking Takeshita’s knees. The damaged limb would later prevent Takeshita from hitting the German Suplex because HARASHIMA would grab onto them. A Short Range Lariat kept him down for a two count but that only riled HARASHIMA up and made him provoke Takeshita to attack even harder. Takeshita went high risk by placing HARASHIMA on the top turnbuckle. That backfired when HARASHIMA turned it into an Avalanche Reverse Frankensteiner followed by the Somato! Takeshita kicked out at two so HARASHIMA went for the Swan Dive Somato. Takeshita caught him in mid-air but HARASHIMA twisted around for another Reverse Frankensteiner. This time Takeshita blocked it and gave HARASHIMA a Croyt’s Wrath style German Suplex for a nearfall. HARASHIMA took control again and this time gave Takeshita the Yama-ori head drop. With both men completely spent they traded Elbow Smashes until Takeshita punched the champion and followed up with the Bionic Elbow taken from his mentor Antonio Honda. He hit the German Suplex but HARASHIMA was still able to kick out. Finally Takeshita crossed HARASHIMA’s arms together for one more German Suplex and this time the champion was down for the count.

Takeshita thanked HARASHIMA after the match. Takeshita became a pro wrestler because he loves DDT so to be in the main event for the company’s 20th Anniversary means everything to him. He feels the pressure of being the future of this company but he will show everyone why he deserves that title as DDT moves into its 21st year. When the new champion finished the prize ceremony he was approached by Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. Sasaki said he knew Takeshita would beat HARASHIMA then pretended to cry. In truth, he doesn’t care about Takeshita’s accomplishment. DAMNATION will finish him and to prove it his first challenger will be Tetsuya Endo! Takeshita’s former friend said he does not know what the future really is but he’s not interested. In fact, the future he sees now is an eyesore. Takeshita accepted the challenge and they will get their match at Korakuen Hall on 29th April. The show then ended with a curtain call to DDT’s old theme song “Into The Light”. The final scene in the ring had Takeshita and HARASHIMA fist bump and agree to wrestle each other again some day. HARASHIMA went to leave the ring but Takeshita stopped him so they could leave together.

The weapons in the DDT Extreme Title match were provided by a company called Seki-chu and boy did Jun Kasai and Daisuke Sasaki use a lot of them. Tables, ladders, chairs, trash cans, rakes and even a wire mesh fence were used throughout the match. Sasaki came out on top but he had to put his body on the line to do so. Kasai was still alive and kicking after an Avalanche Power Bomb from the ladder through the fence. Even the NOW OR NEVER couldn’t put Kasai away. So Sasaki had to put Kasai on a table and climb up the ladder. With his last words being “I am Charisma!” Sasaki jumped off the ladder and hit a Diving Elbow Drop on Kasai. The table didn’t break but Kasai did and Sasaki became the new Extreme Champion! He threw the belt away, claiming he does not need it. He has words to say to Kasai, many of them that cannot be broadcast on TV but he cannot deny Kasai was at his craziest today. Still, Sasaki won’t conform. He won’t kiss ass. And he definitely won’t get married. “We are DAMNATION! And I am the Charisma, Daisuke Sasaki!”

Saitama Super Arena was taken back to the Romance Of The Three Kingdoms for a special 6-Man Tag promoting the Nobunaga’s Ambition video game. The series produce Kou Shibusawa greeted the audience before the match, telling everyone to enjoy video games and pro wrestling. All the wrestlers took part in their character costumes. Sanshiro Takagi wasted no time in building a castle of chairs in the ring. It was no surprise to anyone that he was thrown into the castle later. Isami Kodaka took out Daisuke Sekimoto with a Topé Suicida. Keiji Muto and Jun Akiyama faced off and had a stalemate when Akiyama hit the Exploder Suplex then Muto immediately fired back with the Shining Wizard. That left Kota Ibushi to give Takagi the Sit Down Last Ride followed by the Phoenix Splash to win the match.

When the segment was over Takagi stayed in the ring for an important announcement. He is happy to see so many people come out to see DDT’s 20th Anniversary. There is nothing left for him to do so he will retire immediately. Even though he is going away he is confident that DDT will grow bigger and bigger without him. He has no regrets even though he had announced a major goal at the 15th Anniversary show in Budokan Hall that never came to pass. He demanded the staff at ringside to give him the 10 bell salute and thanked everyone he could during each ringing of the bell. On the 8th toll he suddenly received a phone call. It turns out there is something left for him to do after all. Suddenly a picture of the Tokyo Dome appeared on the screen. Takagi announced that DDT will hold a Street Wrestling Match inside the Tokyo Dome later this year! Takagi immediately cancelled his plans to retire. There are still dreams and ambitions for DDT to come true!

Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi overcame an ambush by DAMNATION to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles over their shoulders. Even though Sakaguchi’s goal for the match was to kill Endo, he instead settled with pinning Shuji Ishikawa to win the match. Not an easy feat at all! Ishikawa blocked the Right Knee Of God the first time so Sakaguchi had to climb the turnbuckles and hit an elevated version of his finisher to put the big dog down. Their victory ceremony was interrupted when Danshoku Dino snuck into the ring and gave the match sponsor a Lip Lock. Dino told Funaki he’s made a lot of enemies over his career but he has never fought a hybrid body like Dino’s, nor has he fought a real Dramatic Dream Team like Danshoku Dino & Yoshihiro Takayama! Dino is here to lay out the challenge. Real No Fear wants the KO-D Tag Team Titles! Funaki realised the match is unavoidable. He and Sakaguchi will fight Real No Fear. But until then the champions will drink.

There is a lot to go through for the next match. A lot! At some point in the show Joey Ryan won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. I’ll get into more detail with that later. For now just know that Ryan now had to defend the championship against Danshoku Dino in an Anal Explosion Death Match. But first, Donald Trump appeared for a complete English PowerPoint presentation. Trump revealed that the most powerful person in DDT is not the president Sanshiro Takagi or the KO-D Champion HARASHIMA. It is really the referee Yukinori Matsui! If there is one thing that Matsui hates more than anything else in wrestling it is explicit sexual humour. Do too much of it in front of Matsui and you will get fired. However Dino is the “World’s Strongest Gay Wrestler” and Ryan is the “World’s Strongest Penis Fighter”. Matsui will watch the match backstage so they need to find a way to wrestle explicitly in a way that won’t offend him. Somehow, some way, an Anal Explosion Death Match is acceptable because in this situation “ANAL” stands for “All Nations Anal Love”. If that wasn’t enough, Ryan revealed that Dino’s friend and former Iron Man Champion Ryota Yamazato has been kidnapped by foreign agents. In 20 minute’s time Yamazato’s rear end will be used for the Anal Explosion unless Dino can win the match before then.

The time began to count down and the match was ready to begin. But first the National Anthems of America and Japan had to be played. Additional commentary was provided by Trump and Guanchulo in English, Hoshitango in Spanish and Rekka in Chinese. As the match went on Matsui kept a close eye on the action from backstage. Dino and Ryan fought up the ramp towards the commentary stations. Ryan’s penis flung Dino off the ramp and crashing through the Spanish announce table. Dino was later thrown off the top turnbuckle and he crashed through the Chinese table. The commentators were so mad that they attacked Ryan but he fought them off with his penis. When Dino recovered he gathered the commentators in the ring and placed them on the corner turnbuckles with their backsides exposed. He then overpowered Dino’s penis, getting revenge for the spot that caused all this in the first place. By the time he put the Lip Lock on Ryan, Matsui had seen enough and made his way to the ring. Trump realised the match was in danger of being cancelled so he sprinted backstage. Some of the DNA wrestlers distracted Matsui by treating him like a celebrity, shaking his hand and asking for autographs. Then a mascot blocked his path but Matsui knocked it down with one punch. He then shook its hand. Matsui walked past the women’s locker room and the temptation to peak inside was too much. When it turned out that Cherry was the only person in there Matsui was grossed out and moved on. Finally Trump caught up with Matsui and confronted him. They chopped each other back and forth until they both leaned in closer and closer. Then they kissed. Back in the ring Dino pulled Ryan’s lollipop out of one of the commentator’s backside and he then put it in Ryan’s mouth. That stunned Ryan long enough for Dino to do the Danshoku Driver for the victory. The two congratulated each other after the match and Ryan handed both the Iron Man Title and the bomb button over to Dino. Dino threw the button away and left his buddy Yamazato to get his ass exploded with three firecrackers outside the building. The screen went blank and we’re left with the message “There can be no peace on earth without pro wrestling” along with a picture of Sanshiro Takagi naked. Backstage Dino and Ryan started to act like friends but quickly started fighting again over the Iron Man Title.

Shungo Oyama did well in his debut but ultimately fell to Yoshihiro Takayama. The two locked up and threw punches in a scene that resembled Takayama’s famous fight with Don Frye. The slugfest ended with Takayama pinning Oyama with the Everest German Suplex. Dick Togo respected Oyama’s effort and noticed Oyama respects pro wrestling enough to fear it. KUDO hopes to team with Oyama again if Oyama decides to continue wrestling. Oyama said he felt at home fighting in Saitama Super Arena again.

Miyu Yamashita has caught Meiko Satomura’s attention but she’ll probably wish she hadn’t. Satomura pinned Yamashita to win the women’s match for her team but their interaction did not end there. Yamashita stood up to her from the apron after the match and Satomura’s reaction was to kick her away. In the post-match interview Satomura said she see will never forget what she saw in Yamashita’s eyes today. She’s motivated, that’s for sure. She would like to fight her one on one. Satomura’s partners however she is more friendly with. She felt a sense of unity with Saki Akai and Syoko Nakajima throughout the match. Akai admitted feeling a little of jealous of Yamashita for firing up Satomura. Aja Kong thought Nakajima was okay but small. Cherry was happy to wrestle in front of many fans and she appreciates the women coming together for this show when she previously spent years as the only female wrestler in DDT.

In the match between Shigehiro Irie and Mike Bailey, the Tazzmission proved to be the difference maker. Irie caught Bailey with the submission hold in mid-air and turned it into a Camel Clutch variat to make Speedball tap out. Irie still isn’t finished with his warrior training but at least he got to show everyone in Japan that his trips to America are not going to waste. Irie credited Ohio’s Rockstar Pro Wrestling in particular for his recent improvement. Bailey says Irie is now on the same level as HARASHIMA and Takeshita.

In the 8-Man Tag Match, Yuni found an opportunity to wear the Hirata GO! glasses and start dancing. Kazuki Hirata ruined the moment by knocking Yuni out with a chop to the back of the neck. Hirata put the glasses on and cleared the ring with his dance fighting. But he was then stopped with a Triple Dropkick from Jaguar Yokota, Keisuke Ishii & Masahiro Takanashi. Yuni then pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana.

The 3 Way Trios match for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles was a crazy sprint but NωA came out of it with the belts. Yasu Urano countered Kazusada Higuchu’s Power Bomb into a Frankensteiner but Urano was then knocked down by MAO’s Screw Kick. Urano avoided the Firebird Splash from Shunma Katsumata but didn’t see MAO coming with the Cannonball 450. That move won NωA the championship and all three were in tears when they were handed the belts.

Many wrestlers from DDT’s past, some unexpected, came back for the Dramatic Rumble with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and King Of Dark Title both on the line. MIKAMI was out first with his ladder. Daichi Kakimoto was a surprise entrant wearing the mask he used in his Union Pro run. Poison Sawada JULIE eliminated loads of people with his snake magic. Unfortunately his endurance is not what it used to be and he fainted from overuse. Gorgeous Matsuno eliminated JULIE by accident when DJ Nira (who was not an official participant) pushed Matsuno on top of JULIE with his umbrella. Mad Paulie eliminated Gota Ihashi which means Ihashi is still the King Of Dark Champion. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi stood on top of Kotatsu and leapt off it to deliver a super Michinoku Driver II to Yoshihiko. Kotatsu eliminated a few wrestlers with its comfy quilt until Guanchulo decided to wear Kotatsu over him like a backpack. Munenori Sawa was the last surprise entrant. He hit Guanchulo with a Rabbit Punch and Guanchulo fell on top of Kotatsu. That counted as a pin so Guanchulo won the Iron Man Title. Ken Ohka was the final entrant but he and Sawa spent so long singing to his entrance music that Guanchulo eliminated them both to win the Rumble. His celebration was short lived when Yoshihiko dove on top of him from the stage to win the belt. Later on in the show Kotatsu won the title by pinning Yoshihiko backstage. Joey Ryan congratulated Kotatsu then used his penis strength to flip it over and claim the title for himself.

Mil Clown was accidentally unmasked during the Tokyo Joshi Pro dark match. Her mask flew off when Azusa Takaigawa gave her the X Factor. As much as she tried to hide her face, Clown eventually gave up and focused on beating Takigawa with the Magical Merry Go Round followed by the Mil Clutch α. Clown fled the ring as soon as she got her mask back on.

Naomi Yoshimura continues his aggressive streak by winning the DNA dark match for his team.

Kota Umeda was invited to the ring during the opening announcements. He was at the show as Yoshihiko’s handler but informed everyone that his recovery is going well and he will return to the ring this year. The other injured DNA wrestler Suguru Miyatake was supposed to be at the show but had to miss it because of the flu.

Naomichi Marufuji will participate at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” in Sumo Hall on 20th August.

Antonio Honda is still taking time out during his matches to talk about foxes. This time it was done to distract his opponents so Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey could attack when their guards dropped. The three of them wound up to do a Triple Bionic Elbow to HARASHIMA but hey were all cut off. HARASHIMA then led his team through a train attack on Honda ending with the match winning Somato. HARASHIMA said DDT will continue doing the Utan shows in Tokyo JR Omori Station for another 10, 20 and 30 years!

Makoto Oishi was able to beat Seiya Morohashi when Morohashi missed a Diving Headbutt. That gave Oishi the opening to do the Miracle Ecstasy and also a Frog Splash. Oishi called out the Battle Royal winner Chikara to make next year’s World Omori Title match official.

A wrestler impersonation contest was held during the show. Some of the contestants imitated wrestlers like Keiji Muto and Kazuchika Okada. There was even a woman who imitated Jiro Kuroshio. Chinsuke Nakamura made an entrance wearing a home made NXT Title belt. Munenori Sawa then made a surprise appearance to do a Pro Wres LOVE pose. The judges Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Sanshiro Takagi picked Chinsuke and Sawa as the winners.

1. Big China Unified Nakahara Tag Team Championship – 3 Way Tag: Sanshiro Takagi & Munenori Sawa defeated Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei and Danshoku Dino & Chou-un Shiryu when Sawa pinned Shiryu with the Shining Festival (59:35).
*V2 for Takagi & Sawa.

Another chaotic DDT match is over and done with as Munenori Sawa (the “Hentai” in the show’s title) participated in his final Anywhere Pro Wrestling bout. A 3 Way Tag Team match for the Big China Unified Nakahara Tag Team Titles was the only match on the show but it went on for almost an hour. Chou-un Shiryu was determined to win back his country’s championship and teamed up with Danshoku Dino to go after the belts. The Brahman Brothers were the third wheel and dark horses of the title match, bringing along their unpredictable shenanigans.

The event took place in a flower garden that contained rollercoaster rides. The brawling was allowed to go anywhere, except on the flowerbeds. Michael Nakazawa was the host running around the area shouting through a megaphone. Kota Ibushi, Antonio Honda, GENTARO and Hiroyo Matsumoto all showed up at certain points and got involved. Ibushi of course attacked the other wrestlers with fireworks. Traffic cones, powder, tobasco sauce, ketchup, a bottle of Coca-Cola containing Mentos and a Sanshiro Takagi sing-a-long were all used as weapons. The match wound up at a lake with a small bridge going across it. Sawa ran off a plank attached to the bridge and landed a Shining Wizard on Chou-un Shiryu in the water for the victory. Afterwards, Takagi announced that the Big China Tag Titles were going to be sealed and no longer defended in Japan. However, he promised Chou-un that the belts will be returned to China and can be reinstated over there if he wishes.

One last thing happened to close out the show. Takagi thanked Sawa for his time wrestling in DDT and Union by presenting him with a brand new bicycle!

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.


Sato & Sawa’s German Adventure, Kenny Goes To Ice Ribbon

January 17, 2011

Both Hikaru Sato and Munenori Sawa were in Germany during the weekend for two Westside Xtreme Wrestling shows. On the same night Daisuke Sekimoto became the new wXw Unified World Champion, Sato & Sawa teamed up to challenge Bad Bones & Carnage for the wXw World Tag Team Titles. The BattlArtsPancrase pair worked well together but failed to win the belts from the duo known as the Oberhausen Terror Corps.

The next night both Sato and Sawa competed in the second annual Ambition shoot style tournament. Both men got past the first round and faced each other in the semi-final where Sawa got the better of Sato. Unfortunately for Sawa, he was defeated in the final.

Speaking of wXw, the company will be holding its major 16 Carat Gold tournament in March. Several Japanese talent will be competing both in tournament and seperate matches. So far the puro scene is represented by Yoshihito Sasaki, Kotaro Suzuki and Go Shiozaki, with Sekimoto taking part in non-tournament bouts. There are still some announcements left to make, so if any DDT related talent get announced I will post it here.

Hikaru Sato In AJPW, Omega To SMASH, Sawa To EVOLVE (Into Sawasaur)

July 27, 2010

A brief note on a few outside adventures featuring DDT related talent. Hikaru Sato is currently taking part in All Japan Pro Wrestling for their annual Jr. Heavyweight League. He is already onto a good start in the competition, pinning Hiroshi Yamato in their bout with a German Suplex to win 2 points in Block A. That show was held in Korakuen Hall and took place on the same day as DDT’s Peter Pan show in Sumo Hall. Sato’s next match takes place today in Saitama and his opponent is the AJPW Jr. Heavyweight ChampionKaz Hayashi.

Kenny Omega will make his debut for Tajiri’s SMASH promotion on the 30th August in Shinjuku FACE. He will take on another Canadian wrestler, Mentallo, who has been a familiar face (er… mask) to SMASH fans since the promotion’s first show back in March.

Finally KO-D Tag Team Champion, Munenori Sawa will make a trip back to the US in September for the fifth EVOLVE show. He will be in the main event taking on Bryan Danielson in a match I am really excited to see take place.
