DDT “DRAMATIC NIIGATA! 2017”, 05/11/2017
Niigata City Nishikawa Multi-Purpose Hall
292 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shuten-dōji Vs T2Hide!: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (9:01).
2. Soma Takao defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Diving Foot Stomp (7:44).
3. Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & Saki Akai defeated Toru Owashi, Kouki Iwasaki & Cherry when Katsumata pinned Iwasaki with a Foot Stomp (9:54).
4. Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii defeated Antonio Honda & Diego when Dino pinned Honda with the G Driver (12:45).
5. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Mike Bailey, MAO & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted MAO with the Cross Facelock (12:42).
6. Niigata Specialty Special Bishamonten Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated HARASHIMA & Super Sasadango Machine when Takeshita submitted Sasadango with a Cross Armbreaker (20:18).

The show took place in Super Sasadango Machine’s hometown so he came out at the start of the show to welcome everyone. He was interrupted by Danshoku Dino who accused Yuki Ueno of causing a fuss at ringside. Dino asked Ueno if there was something he wanted to say. Ueno did have something to tell Sasadango… “Happy birthday to you!” Dino, Ueno, HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda all wished Sasadango a happy 40th birthday and brought in a cake for him too. The birthday celebrations continued in the main event where Sasadango & HARASHIMA took on ALL OUT. Although Sasadango took the fall and lost the match, he was given more presents by the wrestlers and Yukinori Matsui afterwards. Akito dropped pretenses and told Sasadango he was happy to finally wrestle Muscle Sakai today after wanting to do it for a long time. Hisaya Imabayashi then informed Sasadango that he forgot to tell him about the commiserations prize for losing the main event. Sanshiro Takagi came out with the prize, another birthday cake for Sasadango. Takagi told him that when he was 40 years old he booked the first DDT show in Sumo Hall. He wants Sasadango/Sakai to spend his 40th year in life doing something big in Niigata. Sasadango thanked him and the rest of DDT for putting this event together for his birthday. He cannot keep up with the speed and fitness of the younger wrestlers but he still tries and feels refreshed. He looks forward to working towards reaching Takagi’s expectations for him.

MAO was about to do the Cannonball 450 on Daisuke Sasaki but Sasaki pushed the referee into the turnbuckles to knock him down. Sasaki then kicked MAO below the belt and pulled him into the Cross Facelock to make him submit.

It seems that management are starting to get tired of Antonio Honda’s obsession with the children’s tale “Gon, The Little Fox”. Danshoku Dino put together today’s tag match against Honda to prevent Honda from telling everybody in Niigata about Gon, The Little Fox. Dino revealed he is now the chairman of the Gongitsune Diffusion Committee and he was given permission to use a murderous move called the G Driver to stop Honda. Imabayashi protested Dino’s plan on behalf of Honda’s safety but Dino ordered Keisuke Ishii to keep him quiet. Honda tried to talk about “Gon, The Little Fox” but Dino successfully used the G Driver (which is apparently just the Danshoku Driver) to stop him. Dino & Ishii celebrated their mission of keeping Niigata as a Gay Town instead of a Gongitsune Town.

*V6 for Daisuke Sasaki. V8 for Konosuke Takeshita. Ken Ohka fails in V4. Daisuke Sasaki becomes the 25th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion! Daisuke Sasaki wins Ken Ohka’s 714,146 yen!

Three champions entered the main event. One would leave with two titles, one would leave without a belt and the odd one out would be doing alright actually. Konosuke Takeshita and Daisuke Sasaki already have a lot of history with each other over the KO-D Openweight Title. The wild card was Ken Ohka. Not only was he defending the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title but earlier in the week Sasaki stole his bank account details! Sasaki did it because he thinks his own DDT Extreme Title is more valuable so he’d rather win Ohka’s money instead of the Indy Jr. Title. So now Ohka was fighting for both his championship and his money. This was confirmed when Hisaya Imabayashi took in Ohka’s savings book along with the three title belts during the ring introductions. Alliances were made and broken all throughout the match. Takeshita had Sasaki set up for the finish when he went into position for a Power Bomb but Ohka cut him off with the Fire Spear. Ohka then rallied the crowd and waited for Sasaki to get up for the Fire Spear. It all went wrong and Sasaki countered the Spear into the Cross Facelock. Ohka pulled himself over to the ropes but Sasaki rolled him back into the middle of the ring. Ohka tapped out before Takeshita could break the hold. As a result, Sasaki is still the DDT Extreme Champion and is now the new Independent Jr. Champion! Oh, and he now also claims all 714,146 yen of Ken Ohka’s money!

Sasaki was then informed he will have to defend the Indy Jr. Title against Shiori Asahi in K-DOJO for their 15th October show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita is still the KO-D Champion and the result counts as a successful title defence for him. His next defence will be on 22nd October at Korakuen against the Dramatic General Election winner or if he wins the election, an opponent of his choice. Sadly for Ohka, he leaves with nothing. Sasaki told Takeshita that their grudge hasn’t been settled yet. If the fans want to see that happen, vote for Sasaki! He was told to stop campaigning inside the ring because it is against the rules. Sasaki leaned away from his comments and said of course he doesn’t know when they will fight each other again. Sasaki ended the show with a message to everyone watching whether it was on AbemaTV, Samurai! TV, DDT UNIVERSE, in Japan and around the world. He is “Charisma” Daisuke Sasaki! You only have to remember his name. Mother Earth and the DDT ring will turn to the centre of DAMNATION!

One of the longest relationships in DDT’s 20 year history was revisited when HARASHIMA faced KUDO. They have been both tag partners and enemies throughout their careers. Plenty of kicks and Diving Knee Drops were on offer. HARASHIMA’s Somato was countered with KUDO using his own Double Knee Kick. KUDO went for the Diving Double Knee Drop aiming for the back of HARASHIMA’s head but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. HARASHIMA climbed the ropes but KUDO kicked him off and left him to dangle upside down by his legs. KUDO then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to the outside. HARASHIMA fought back as much as he could but couldn’t outkick KUDO. He finally fell down to a Buzzsaw Kick and was pinned with the Diving Double Knee Drop. In his post-match interview KUDO said he was greatful for HARASHIMA’s “special existence” because their matches inspire him. KUDO was also happy because his family was in the audience today and they got to see him wrestle. HARASHIMA was disappointed he lost but hopes his rivalry with KUDO will continue for another 21 or 22 years. He does not want his rivalry to end with a loss.

Entire homes were supposedly on the line for the Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine bout. It was a Loser Leaves House match where whoever lost would be forced to move out of their current home. Sasadango was accompanied by Muscle Sakai but Sakai quickly moved over to a laptop so he could show off a PowerPoint Presentation titled “Consideration On Traceability Of Masked Wrestlers In The Professional Wrestling Industry”. Sakai has been busy away from wrestling, balancing careers in both film making and the molding industry. He is so busy that it leaves him feeling sluggish. One of the problems relating to this is he lives a double life as Super Sasadango Machine. Sakai’s solution was to sell all rights of the Super Sasadango Machine gimmick to a company called CyberAdango to form a subsidiary called M&A.

The subsidiary will rent out the Sasadango gimmick to other wrestlers, which explains how Sakai and Sasadango could be seen together recently. Sakai then revealed that the massive rookie Yuki Ino is renting the Sasadango gimmick and is the person currently under the mask. Also part of the deal allows Sakai and Sasadango to still be recognised as one person so they will be fighting Dino two on one even though it is still officially a singles match. Finally, Sakai said his plan for the match was to poke Dino in the eyes and blind him with the Iron Claw. Sakai then put on his Sasadango gear and entered the match. His plan worked perfectly during the match until Ino pulled off his own Sasadango mask and tights to reveal Danshoku tights underneath! Ino gave Sakai the Lip Lock then threw him into Dino for the Danshoku Driver. The referee raised both Dino and Ino’s hands in victory even though Ino looked embarrased. Sakai was furious at Ino for betraying him. Ino admitted he switched sides when Dino gave him the Lip Lock during the match. In the post-match interview both Dino and Sakai ignored questions about if the match stipulation would be upheld.

Some miscommunication between Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie cost them their match against Soma Takao & Yasu Urano. Paulie’s Corner Splash to Takao missed and instead squashed Endo by mistake. Paulie was so concerned over Endo that he couldn’t fight out of Takao’s La Magistral Cradle and was pinned.

Ryuichi Sekine wanted to get his hands on Saki Akai but wound up getting blocked. Meanwhile Yukio Sakaguchi and Rocky Kawamura had a strike duel that ended in a stalemate when Sakaguchi’s High Kick met with Kawamura’s Straight Mix Punch. Akai hit a Diving Cross Body on Kawamura but he used the momentum to roll backwards on top of her for the pin.

Yuu spent the early part of the show being chased by other wrestlers who wanted the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. She found a room to hide in, ate some katsudon with chopsticks and took a nap afterwards. Yukinori Matsui entered the room and saw the chopstick were on top of Yuu’s chest. 1…2…3! The Disposable Chopsticks were now the champion! Royce Isaacs suddenly appeared and snapped the chopsticks in half with his Miracle Ass. Now he is the champion. Isaacs then went out to the ring to defend the belt in a Battle Royal. Sanshiro Takagi entered the match still wearing his suit from the earlier announcement at the start of the show. Matsuno Collection A.T. took part in the match instead of Gorgeous Matsuno. Antonio Honda distracted Isaacs with a story about “Gon, The Little Fox” mixed in with Lupin III called “Lupine III”. The trick worked, Honda poked Isaacs’s in the eyes and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Yoshihiko then pinned Honda to become champion. Kazuki Hirata grabbed Yoshihiko and used it to hit Yuni with. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko with a Fire Thunder Driver to win the belt. Hirata went on to eliminate five opponents in quick succession by using his HIRATA GO! glasses to make them dance and drop their guards. Only Yuni was left and the kid pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana to win the title and the Battle Royal! Yuni celebrated with Makoto Oishi who lifted him up on his shoulder. Oishi then betrayed Yuni and gave him a Backbreaker to win the belt from him! His moment of glory was cut short when Yuu returned. She flipped him over with a throw and dropped him with the Last Ride to regain her title. She was then chased away from ringside by more wrestlers. When Yuu was finally safe and alone, she had an interview and revealed that she does the Last Ride in dedication to the late Super Uchu Power. She was very happy to do it in a DDT Korakuen Hall show. Yuu said she loves the Iron Man Title the most in the world and wonders if there is anybody else who cherishes it as much as she does.

The show kicked off with an NωA musical performance. While they were singing, Yuu appeared with the Iron Man Title and she was chased around the ring by other wrestlers. When she escaped, the match went on as normal and NωA won. Shunma Katsumata & MAO cut off Kouki Iwasaki and focused their attacks on Mizuki Watase. MAO hit Watase with the Screw High Kick and Katsumata got rid of Iwasaki with a Lightning Spiral. Katsumata then pinned Watase with the Firebird Splash.

Diego rolled away from Daiki Shimomura’s Swanton Bomb then hit him with the VHS to win the dark match.

The DDT roster including wrestlers from DNA, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling gathered in the ring for the announcement of the company becoming a member of CyberAgent group. Sanshiro Takagi was accompanied by the president of CyberAgent, Susumu Fujita. Takagi told everyone he is staying on as the company president and will continue to run DDT as normal. He brought up AbemaTV as a CyberAgent property that is influential among the younger generation. DDT can now use that to their advantage. With this new relationship, Takagi wants DDT to become the No. 1 pro wrestling company in the industry! Susumu admitted he was not a pro wrestling fan but enjoyed watching DDT’s Street Wrestling and Beer Garden shows. He even attended the Beer Garden show hosted by Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine and came away impressed by DDT’s vision of pro wrestling. He assures all of the fans that he does not want DDT to change at all. He wants to make DDT bigger of course but has faith in Takagi’s leadership to make DDT No. 1 in the future. Takagi then rallied the wrestlers group by group. DDT will make the next step. The DDT wrestlers cheered. DNA will make the next step. The DNA wrestlers cheered. BASARA will make the next step. The BASARA wrestlers cheered. Tokyo Joshi will make the next step. The Joshi wrestlers cheered. Ganpuro will make the next step. Ken Ohka cheered then realised he was the only Ganpuro wrestler in the ring.

Takagi reappeared at the end of the show to remind everyone he will continue to be DDT president and as president he will continue to enrich the pro wrestling world.

The schedule for the first ever D King Grand Prix was revealed. There will be 8 shows featuring tournament matches starting on 5th January in Shinjuku FACE with the final taking place at Korakuen Hall on 28th January.

DDT will be teaming up with Ring☆Dream once more to produce a 3rd wrestling show together on 16th December. Two new characters for the game based on DDT wrestlers will be unveiled at next month’s Korakuen show.

DDT will do two matches at the Tokyo Ramen Show 2017 on 26th October.

6. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone: HARASHIMA Vs KUDO
7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Ken Ohka (I/c)

Producer Danshoku Dino explained why he decided to make the HARASHIMA Vs KUDO match. If Sanshiro Takagi, NOSAWA Rongai and MIKAMI were the most important figures in DDT’s creation then HARASHIMA and KUDO are the most important wrestlers for the rest of the 20 year history of the company. Dino wants to see who is the stronger of the two in today’s DDT. HARASHIMA thinks the winner of this match can have a claim to be the No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Openweight Title. KUDO is confident he will win because he beat HARASHIMA in their last singles match together.

For the 3 Way Match main event, KUDO predicts Ken Ohka will find a way to win. Ohka famously won the KO-D Title from KUDO back in 2015 by using his Right To Challenge title shot in the middle of KUDO’s defence against Yasu Urano, turning it into a 3 Way in the process. Ohka pinned Urano to become the champion. His plan worked perfectly but KUDO had his own Right To Challenge Contract and cashed it in to immediately win back the championship. KUDO thinks the landscape of the upcoming main event changes completely with the addition of Ohka. He knows Ohka will have a trick up his sleeve to win somehow.

A weird moment happened at the “NON-FIX ~ 9.13 ~” show a few days ago. Muscle Sakai and Super Sasadango Machine were in the ring together at the same time. It was odd because nobody had ever seen them in the same place before. Sasadango explained in an unusual voice that he hired Sakai as a subcontractor to help Producer Dino with his busy schedule. Sakai’s role is to produce the first ever singles match between Dino Vs Sasadango. Dino is allowing this because Sakai is such an indispensable part of DDT history. Sasadango shocked both Sakai and Dino by revealing that the match is now a Loser Leaves House match! Whoever loses must leave their home and move somewhere else! Sakai got mad because he, er, Sasadango just bought his house in Niigata. When asked why he would make that stipulation, Sasadango said it’s because he lived in Niigata for many years and should move to Tokyo even though he doesn’t want to. But he is also determined not to lose the match. He came up with this stipulation only because the match needs a bet. Sakai admitted he’d like to make Dino move to a new house so the stipulation was accepted!

*V3 for Shuten-dōji.

DDT took a trip through its past for a special show held inside their old venue Shibuya Club ATOM. It was the first time in 13 years that DDT was at the building. Some old friends and faces stopped by and even some of the current generation of DDT wrestlers gave a few references to past members of the company. The main event was a big reunion as HERO!, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba returned to face Shuten-dōji. The decision was made at the start of the show to turn the match into a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. The champions defeated their retro opponents then were joined by the rest of the roster to celebrate 20 years of DDT to end the show.

The YaroZ Vs DAMNATION 6-Man Tag Match was split into two matches by order of Producer Danshoku Dino. He wanted Antonio Honda to have a singles match so he was put in a match against Tetsuya Endo. The remaining Yaroz and DAMNATION wrestlers would then fight in a normal tag match. DAMNATION came out on top in both matches.

Konosuke Takeshita wanted himself and Akito to team with Poison Sawada JULIE because he was the one who pinned JULIE in his retirement match five years ago. JULIE told both of them that ALL OUT is missing something vital. Entertainment! He gave both of them a bottle labelled “ALL OUT POISON” and encouraged them to drink. They were hesitant to do so until JULIE said is was a state of the art 100% protein drink. Takeshita & Akito went ahead and drank their bottles. JULIE then revealed it is Snake World Protein and they are now under his spell! When it was time for their match, Takeshita & Akito wore JULIE style gear and were now called Konosuke Hebikita & Hebikito! With a hiss and a rattle, JULIE controlled his subjects to defeat NωA. Hebikito gave Shunma Katsumata the Maoi Of Easter then put him in a Figure Four Leg Lock. Hebikita put Makoto Oishi in the Cattle Mutilation to make him submit. The snake potion wore off 10 minutes after the match and JULIE only brought two bottles. Neither Takeshita nor Akito noticed.

When Ken Ohka arrived in the building, so many memories came flooding back. Not all of them good. He flashed back to 2004 when he was wrestling as the musketeer O.K. Revolution and was forced by Sanshiro Takagi to retire. With this fresh in his mind he wanted revenge on Takagi. He tried to convince Danshoku Dino and Muscle Sakai to join him and gang up on Takagi. But when the bell rang to start the match Takagi, Dino and Sakai all attacked Ohka instead. Takagi tried to give Ohka the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Cherry rolled into the ring and stopped him. Takagi got rid of Cherry and tried his finisher again. This time Sakai stopped him and then to everyone’s surprise Super Sasadango Machine entered the ring. Takagi’s confusion at seeing Sakai and Sasadango standing next to each other distracted him long enough for Ohka to hit him with the Fire Spear for the three count. Ohka told Takagi afterwards that he dreamt of nothing but beating him in Club ATOM. Now that he did it, he forgives him for what happened between them in the past. Ohka cried for his music to play but there was silence. Takagi reminded Ohka who is the real thing around here and screamed for his own song to play. This time it did.

Kazuki Hirata brought down Tetsuya Koda to be a DJ for the Club House Death Match. DJ Koda was instructed to play only one song throughout the match, “TOKYO GO”. Koda kept getting accidentally cut off by Toru Owashi. When he eventually recovered and played the song again, Mike Bailey put on the HIRATA GO! glasses and sang along while Keisuke Ishii pinned Hirata with the Kneel Kick.

The main event was a free for all brawl with “Enter Sandman” playing throughout until the end. Danshoku Dino filled the ring with empty cans he poured out of rubbish bags for the wrestlers to be slammed on. That encouraged the audience to throw in their empty cans too although that led to Dino being struck by a few of them. Even though they weren’t part of the match, Daiki Shimomura and DT-YUTA began fighting each other in the ring and YUTA came out on top with a Jackhammer. Dino then put Shimomura in the Lip Lock when the music suddenly changed to “The Rising Sun”. Out came Chinsuke Nakamura! He hit the Kinsasha to Shimomura then tried to do the same to Dino. It was blocked and Chinsuke was given the Lip Lock. Sanshiro Takagi ran out and attacked Dino. He hit Dino with a Stunner then whacked him over the head with a copy of Zexy Magazine! Takagi dragged Chinsuke on top of Dino and the referee counted to three.

Super Sasadango Machine Vs Ken Ohka was a match that was originally meant to happen last October but Sasadango’s health problems prevented it from happening until today. Both Sasadango and Ohka have been wrestling for 15 years but they have never truly given out their honest feelings for each other. Their match would not end until both were satisfied that they fought each other to their full abilities. Ohka was already tearful and he admitted he did not know what to do in this situation but Sasadango encouraged him to go all out. Ohka kicked out of the Lehmann Shock and hit the Fire Spear to win the match. Ohka said he was worrying endlessly about this match ever since Dino put it together. But he will never give up to anything and “Sakai” is no exception! Sasadango thanked him for the match then said they will wrestle the remaining 20 years of their wrestling lives together!

The Lariat Pro match was cut short after a minute without a single Lariat finding its target. Tomomitsu Matsunaga pressed Keisuke Ishii against the ropes and didn’t break after a 5 count so his team was disqualified. Ishii said he came to throw Lariats and make the fans all stomp their feet with excitement. Matsunaga agreed so an immediate restart was decided. “Power Hall” played and everybody started Lariating each other. That ended when Toru Owashi did a Flying Cross Chop instead. After the match concept was explained to him and argument broke out and everybody began Chopping each other to “Thunderstorm”. The song changed to “Sunrise” when the Lariats came back. Nobuhiro Shimatani joined in and so did Cherry but her Lariat was countered by Ishii’s. When “J” came on everybody did Jumping Knee Strikes. There was then a sudden announcement that only one minute was left in the match. There was a flurry of classic All Japan offence from Ishii and Kazusada Higuchi that had the crowd stomping their feet after every nearfall but the time expired without a winner determined. Officially the match went 30 minutes but to everyone watching it felt like 5.

Makoto Oishi and Shigehiro Irie were put in a match together specifically to motivate Irie. The match consisted of two 5 minute rounds and the wrestlers would be scored for how cool they were by Azusa Takigawa, Mita Sayoko and a group of female fans. Irie would presumably become more motivated when given a chance to impress women. The plan didn’t work as Oishi won the match by judges decision. The female fans scored the fight 16-18 in Irie’s favour and Sayoko gave it a 19-19 draw. But Takigawa overwhelmingly voted for Oishi 20-0 so the final score was 55-37 for Oishi. Takigawa admitted that even though Irie worked hard, she couldn’t physiologically like him at all.

Whatever problems there were between HARASHIMA and Hiroshi Tanahashi is now all water under the bridge. The two faced off in a tag team match for the first time since August with HARASHIMA looking to redeem himself in front of the New Japan ace. HARASHIMA and Ken Ohka had the home field advantage with everyone in the audience chanting for DDT and booing the New Japan team. Tanahashi ignored HARASHIMA and instead glared at Ohka. Yohei Komatsu then attacked HARASHIMA to start the match. Tanahashi continued to get booed especially when he worked over Ohka. But Ohka caught Tanahashi off guard with the Kamikaze and made the hot tag to HARASHIMA. Ohka later helped HARASHIMA avoid a Superplex by grabbing Tanahashi’s leg as he stood on the turnbuckles. HARASHIMA then rocked Tanahashi with a Rock Punch during an Elbow Strike exchange. Ohka readied himself for the Spear Of Flame but Tanahashi stopped it and attacked Ohka’s legs with the Dragon Screw, a low Dropkick and a Texas Cloverleaf. Komatsu did his part and prevented HARASHIMA from breaking the hold yet Ohka was able to reach the ropes. The tables were turned when Tanahashi held Ohka in a Full Nelson and Komatsu charged in for a Clothesline. Ohka escaped and Tanahashi took the blow. HARASHIMA focused on Komatsu and hit the Falcon Arrow and a High Kick. He went for the Somato but Komatsu rolled out of the way. Tanahashi tried to get involved but Ohka of all people took him out with the Spear Of Flame! HARASHIMA flipped Komatsu over with the Reverse Frankensteiner and hit the Somato for the victory.

While Ohka and HARASHIMA celebrated, Tanahashi was quick to leave the ring. It looked like he was about to leave but he instead walked over to the timekeeper’s table and opened up a MacBook. “Although this is immediately after the match has ended, I want to start the presentation!” That’s right, Tanahashi was going to present everyone his very own Powerpoint presentation! Titled “How To Liven Up More Worlds Of Professional Wrestling” Tanahashi introduced himself as “New Japan flesh that has been carefully trained in the dojo.” He also revealed he got written permission from Super Sasadango Machine to do this.

Tanahashi wants to spice up pro wrestling and spoke about the famous Keiji Muto Vs Nobuhiko Takada match from 1995, a match that at the time featured the ace of New Japan against the ace of UWF-I in an exciting dream bout. Twenty years later Tanahashi wondered if he and HARASHIMA would be able to elicit the same kind of excitement and enthusiasm for their match this past August. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and Tanahashi let his emotions get the better of him in his post-match comments. He now apologises to HARASHIMA and encourages him to continue down the road as the ace of DDT. Going back to spicing up the wrestling world, Tanahashi had some announcements to make in regards to his 2016 plans. He will win the IWGP Heavyweight Title at the Tokyo Dome in January, he will win the G1 Climax in August, he will enter the 2016 DDT Dramatic General Election and he will also enter the unit portion of the election in order to win and book his own DDT show next November! Learning his lesson from last time, HARASHIMA did not try to shake hands with Tanahashi. Instead he stuck out his fist and Tanahashi gave him a fist bump in response. Tanahashi offered to fist bump Ohka but Ohka told him to headbutt him instead. They gently bumped their heads together, smiled and gave each other a nod before Tanahashi left. HARASHIMA admitted feeling a bit confused but thanked Ohka, Danshoku Dino and Muscle Sakai for doing everything they could to make the match happen. He also thanked New Japan, Tanahashi and Komatsu for accepting their request.

Today’s show booked by #OhkaEmpire was a throwback to the old Muscle shows. It couldn’t officially be labelled as such because the next Muscle show is not supposed to take place until 6th October 2030 at the Tokyo Dome. However Muscle Sakai saw that today was enough of a special occassion to re-enter the ring and wrestle Konosuke Takeshita. Sakai targeted Takeshita’s right arm and eventually hit three Lehmann Shocks. When he was about to do the third one the arena darkened, “Etupirika” started playing and everything slowed down. We could hear the voices of Sakai’s and Takeshita’s hearts speak while Sakai and Takeshita fought in slow motion. Takeshita slowly pinned Sakai with the German Suplex and the match ended. Sakai awarded him with a Money In The Back suitcase (that’s right, suitcase) that guarantees him a spot on the next Muscle show in 2030. Takeshita said he may be wrestling overseas for a major company by then but if that does happen he promises to travel back to Japan to be on the show.

The undercard featured a team challenge between the old and new generation of Muscle wrestlers. The Old Muscle team won the first match in a contest where only cradles, School Boys and other pin attempt moves were allowed. Choun-Shiryu & Pedro Takashi both revealed they were now insurance salesmen and they tricked their opponents to lie down on the canvas to sign a new insurance plan. They rolled them up for the three count. The New Muscle team won Match #2 which was a Best 2 out of 3 Falls match between Danshoku Dino & Antonio Honda against KAT-TOO. The New Muscle team won the first two falls back to back. The deciding contest was an arm wrestling contest between Muscle cameraman Kazunori Huzioka and comedian Ryota Yamazato. Huzioka won it for Old Muscle!

There is going to be a Muscle Sakai II but who will it be, Hiroshi Fukuda or Super Sasadango Machine…? Something isn’t right about that. Muscle Sakai will present golden baggy pants to the winner. The baggy pants is necessary to identify Muscle Sakai II.
