The big change is with the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. The match was going to be cancelled until Danshoku Dieno got Super Sasadango Machine to team with him because he is “big and fit” like his last tag partner. Dieno said despite the twists and turns this week, his ambition has not changed. He still intends to win as many DDT championships as he can.

Raku now has a win under her belt and she got it at Miu Watanabe’s expense. With Maki Itoh’s guidance she also wants the Princess Tag Team Titles too. Itoh agreed to team with her because she wants to see if her hard head is tougher than Rika Tatsumi’s ass.

Miyu Yamashita and Natsumi Maki continue their series of singles matches. Yamashita was happy with Maki’s performance in their previous match. Now she will see if Maki has gotten even better in the third match.

Yuka Sakazaki will not be at the show. The popular guess online as to why is she may be on the next AEW PPV happening in Chicago the same weekend.

2. Keigo Nakamura BOYZ Assessment Match: Hiroshi Yamato defeated Keigo Nakamura with the Fisherman Suplex (6:51).

Several members of Homoiro Clover Z came gathered together for a special reunion. There was Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi, Akito, KUDO, Hiroshi Fukuda and even Yoshihiko playing the role of Kota Ibushi all turning up. With the power of pop music, HomoClo won the main event with everyone getting involved. Fukuda knocked away HARASHIMA, KUDO gave Mizuki Watase a Buzzsaw Kick and Yoshihiko hit Keisuke Ishii with the Kamigoye. Oishi then pinned Watase with the Luminous Press.

Their victory celebration was interrupted by a familiar song. “ωe are the HERO!!” played as MAO & Shunma Katsumata walked out representing NωA! They came out calling themselves the only real idol unit in the history of DDT. Oishi was conflicted. Here he is with HomoClo but he is a part of NωA too. The two units had a tug of war over Oishi until he came up with an idea. Homoiro Clover Z and NωA will fight over who gets Oishi on the 26th March BOYZ show.

Keigo Nakamura’s audition for BOYZ began with him singing “Young Man” for his entrance. Hiroshi Yamato then showed him how it was really done by singing “BURN” and wrestling in a fancy suit.

Problems began to surface between Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Missed attacks and forced tags made it seem like they were going to break up. But they were able to solve their problem and reconcile.

4. Fear! Big Ikemen Brahman Attack! ~Cold Iron Pillar~: Brahman Shu, Brahman Kei & Jiro Kuroshio defeated MAO, Mike Bailey & Asuka when Kei pinned MAO after the Five Body Dissatisfaction (15:04).

The Moonlight Express were joined by Asuka for their turn in charge of Beer Garden week. Facing them was the alliance of good and evil that is Jiro Kuroshio and The Brahman Brothers. Kuroshio was convinced to go along with the Brahmans’ antics including throwing the bowling ball into the suitcase that was pinning Asuka and the Express in the corner. There was brawling all over the venue but Mike Bailey was brought into the ring to get a stake hammered up his backside with a traffic sign. Asuka turned the tables and landed a Moonsault onto Brahman Shu. But Kuroshio blinded MAO with powder and the Brahmans used their double team moves on him. MAO did his best to stay in the match but he was blinded again this time when Kuroshio spat ink in his eyes. This time Kuroshio and the Brahmans all cradled MAO together in a triple pin to get the three count.

The Brahmans celebrated their victory. Brahman Kei told the Express that their loss means they shouldn’t book a Beer Garden show again next year. Instead Gorgeous Matsuno should get the gig and sing for three hours! Bailey consoled MAO who was scared at the thought of hearing Matsuno sing for three hours straight. Makoto Oishi and Shunma Katsumata then came out. They told MAO there was one thing they could do to end the show on a happy note. The NωA can reunite and sing for everyone one more time! MAO learned that his friends old and new will always be there for him. NωA sang “Going my ωay!!!!!~You Are Not Alone” to close out the show.

The elderly Gabai Ji-chan needed assistance from Yukio Sakaguchi to enter the ring for their tag match. Despite his limited movements, Ji-chan was able to do the Old School rope walk with his cane. Also whenever Yuki Ueno & Hiroshi Yamato did something to harm him, an angry Sakaguchi stepped in to dish out some punishment. Sakaguchi got rid of Ueno with a Penalty Kick then choked out Yamato with the Sleeper Hold. Ji-chan then won the match with the Gabaiton Bomb.

After the match Sakaguchi gave Ji-chan a can of beer. He told him to take care of his body to live longer. One way to do that is drink more alcohol. They had a toast until Ji-chan hit Sakaguchi from behind with his cane! Ji-chan rolled up Sakaguchi for the pin and became the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion! Sakaguchi got back up and put Ji-chan in the Sleeper Hold to win back the title. Ji-chan had to be resuscitated by Yukinori Matsui afterwards.

Mizuki Watase was put through a Rumble style Handicap match with each opponent representing different behaviors. Naomi Yoshimura was “Joy” and he shared beers with Watase before running him over with a Shoulder Block. Mike Bailey was “Anger” and didn’t hold back on attacking Watase. Kazusada Higuchi was “Sorrow” and grieved over Watase’s beating. Last was Yoshihiko as “Comfort”. It just thrown into the ring and did nothing. The numbers game overwhelmed Watase but he was able to fight back. His comeback ended when he tried to give Yoshihiko the Tiger Suplex but it was countered into the Reincarnation. After the match Watase told everyone he wants to stay here and do more pro wrestling. The others congratulated him while “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis” played over the speakers.

The NωA reunion actually happened in the first match as all three members got together for a 6-Man Tag Match. They sang “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” for their entrance. What they did not expect was Danshoku Dieno, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda making their own idol group called HωA. They also sang “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU”. There was also Queen music used during the match. Dieno shenanigans took place, Daisuke Kiso took a ref bump into his rear end and Matsui called off the match while “We Are the Champions” played. NωA then sang “ωe are the HERO!!”.

In the opening announcements Bailey tried to use Google Translate to tell everyone that today is the 3rd anniversary of his first wrestling match in Japan.

Something Like A Falls Count Anywhere Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito defeated Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO and Danshoku Dieno, Momomi Wagatsuma, Imoko Shingeki, Rise Shiokawa & Midori Nagatsuki when Takagi pinned Oishi with a Diving Body Press from a Ladder through a Table (13:19).

Today DDT took a little break from the Beer Garden to visit the Tokyo Idol Festival. The matches were supposed to be held on the stage but all of the wrestlers encouraged the idols to join them on the ground to take part in some Falls Count Anywhere matches.

In the first match all of the idols were given Pico Pico Hammers to attack the wrestlers with. Makoto Oishi wanted to take selfies with the idols but the festival security stepped in whenever he stood to close to the girls. Oishi then got put through a table by Sanshiro Takagi, losing his Right To Challenge Gauntlet to him when he was pinned.

A second match was held a while later and this time Oishi returned with the Up Up Girls (Fake) to perform. Danshoku Dieno and the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) then showed up to stop them. Takagi reappeared on the Dramatic Dream Bicycle and he crashed into Hyper Misao who was using her own Combat Bike. The Up Up Girls all attacked Oishi and Dieno finished him off with the Raw Danshoku Driver on top of the bicycle.

January 28, 2018

DDT “D-KING GRAND PRIX 2018 THE FINAL!!”, 28/01/2018

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Mike Bailey when Endo pinned Bailey with the Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds (15:07).
7. D-King Grand Prix – Final: Shuji Ishikawa defeated HARASHIMA with the Giant Slam (19:12).

After an intense month of round robin matches it was now time for the first ever D-King Grand Prix grand final! The two group winners HARASHIMA and Shuji Ishikawa faced off with a lot of important prizes on the line for the winner. HARASHIMA used short ranged Somatos to counter Ishikawa’s biggest moves but was too beaten down to fully capitalise on them. The tables turned when Ishikawa caught the Somato and countered it into the Fire Thunder Driver. HARASHIMA kicked out at one! Ishikawa quickly hit a Knee Lift but HARASHIMA kicked out at two. Ishikawa then did the Splash Mountain but somehow HARASHIMA kicked out again. He tried to kick his way back into the fight but Ishikawa stopped him with a Trapped Headbutt followed by the Kamigoe and another Knee Lift. HARASHIMA was still kicking out but the Giant Slam put him away once and for all. Shuji Ishikawa wins the 2018 D-King Grand Prix!

Ishikawa’s prize is 2,000,000 yen in prize money (he is considering a bitcoin investment) and the guaranteed KO-D Openweight Title main event match at Sumo Hall on 25th March. Konosuke Takeshita entered the ring and stood across from his next challenger. Ishikawa told him that when he had the belt, it shined more. He has to give it more light again. Takeshita praised Ishikawa for his contributions to pro wrestling in Japan. He is one of the best. But Takeshita will have held the belt for over a year when their match takes place. He told Ishikawa they will destroy the ring together in Sumo Hall!

When Takeshita left, Daisuke Sasaki congratulated Ishikawa for crushing their hated enemy HARASHIMA. He was then distracted by Tetsuya Endo’s new hairstyle. Endo tried to change the subject by encouraging Ishikawa to sing a victory song. Ishikawa sang “Love” by Hoshino Genki while Mad Paulie tried to dance along to the music. When the song was over Ishikawa told everyone on 25th March he wants to win the KO-D Title then sing with Mad Paulie at Sumo Hall!

DAMNATION attacked ALL OUT with chairs after beating them in the semi-main event. Shunma Katsumata ran in to rescue the group but was outnumbered. DAMNATION gave him a Super Power Bomb, leaving the entire ALL OUT unit in pieces.

Today for the last time NωA went out to perform their greatest hits. They begun with “ωe are the HERO!!” then moved on to “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU”. However their second song was interrupted by T2Hide. Sanshiro Takagi believed the performance was being treated by the audience as a toilet break. Takagi also complained the concert was going so long that there was no time for Kazuki Hirata to do his entrance. The match devolved into a musical duel between NωA and “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” against T2Hide and “Tokyo GO!” until Katsumata gave Hirata the Lightning Spiral to win the match. After the match each NωA member spoke of their future plans and goals. MAO wants to team more with Mike Bailey and cause a full rampage in DDT together. Makoto Oishi wants to achieve the DDT Grand Slam by winning every championship in the company. In the meantime he will go back to his old tag team with Danshoku Dino. Katsumata said there is another unit he would like to join. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito then appeared and stood next to Katsumata. He is joining ALL OUT!

A match featuring Dino, Joey Ryan and Jiro Kuroshio was as perverted as expected. Kuroshio had the back of his tights pulled down but he still did a bare-assed Quebrada out of the ring. Yukinori Matsui was accidentally knocked out by Dino’s Lip Lock. Ryan tried to put a lollipop into Keisuke Ishii’s mouth but he pushed it away into Dino’s backside. The lollipop was then stuffed into Kuroshio’s mouth. Dino got his hands on Kuroshio. Ryan took out the lollipop and tried to put it in Ishii’s mouth again. Ishii again pushed it away back into Dino’s backside and then into Matsui’s mouth. Matsui woke up, disqualified everyone and fainted again. When everything calmed down, Ryan called for Producer Dino’s attention. He called Dino the No. 1 crazy wrestler in DDT but Ryan is the No. 1 Crazy Gaijin. To prove it Ryan wants to face Colt Cabana at “JUDGEMENT 2018”! Dino was busy with Kuroshio and said okay. Super Sasadango Machine then asked Dino if he could defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Kuroshio on the same show. Kuroshio accepted the challenge. However Dino wants Sasadango to defend the title at least two times a week until the match takes place otherwise the title will not be on the line. The reason for this is Dino wants the Ironman Title to get more attention and no one in DDT is better at marketing than Sasadango.

That wasn’t the end for Dino on this show as he had the important decision to make in regards to his 6-Man Tag match against The Great Muta at “JUDGEMENT 2018” in March. Ken Ohka is his obvious first pick. Ishii then asked to be Dino’s pick. He argued that their record as a tag team stands at 25 wins and 10 losses. Good enough! Suddenly they were ambushed by Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo! The DAMNATION wrestlers spat liquid into Dino & Ishii’s eyes and it was sold like the Poison Mist. Sasaki told them it was only cola. He then revealed he visited The Great Muta earlier and Muta agreed to become DAMNATION’s pet! Dino’s team will now have to fight Muta, Sasaki & Endo at Sumo Hall!

KUDO continues to be in good form as he prepares for his DDT Extreme Title match on 3rd February. The champion Yuko Miyamoto hasn’t chosen a stipulation yet but KUDO wants it to be a Hardcore Match of some kind. Masahiro Takanashi said the purple belt will look good on him along with the white KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title belts they already have. Takanashi also called out for any potential challengers to step forward whether they are from DDT, BASARA or even Tokyo Joshi Pro.

Today’s PowerPoint presentation by Super Sasadango Machine was titled “How to Finalize Declaration of Final Procedure and Taxation” with supervision provided by the match sponsor Professor Takahashi. Sasadango stressed that it is better for people to file a final tax return when they want a lot of refund money. To increase their refund, it is better to increase their expenses. So Sasadango bought some new items for the wrestlers in this match to use as weapons. Sasadango bought himself a 256GB iPhone X, Saki Akai a Goyard tote bag, Antonio Honda a vintage stuffed tiger doll and Tanomusaku Toba a bunch of Tenga Egg sex toys. Sasadango took selfies with Honda and the tiger. Akai attacked Toba with the tote bag. Sasadango and Honda then opened the contents of Toba’s egg and played with them until Honda called over to Professor Takahashi. Honda accused Takahashi of tax evasion and ordered Inoue Mic to arrest him! Mic pulled out handcuffs and followed Honda’s orders. Honda then accused Sasadango of tax evasion, Toba of taking drugs and Akai of stealing his heart. Toba said he may have taken drugs but he isn’t sure. Sasadango, Akai and Toba then joined forces to beat Toba with Sasadango getting the pin. The lesson of this match? For correct knowledge of tax returns please visit the Takahashi Tax Accounting Office.

Kota Umeda is getting back into the swing of things since returning from injury. He got the pin in the opening match.

In the dark match Nobuhiro Shimatani tried to get the upper hand by attacking Naomi Yoshimura from behind but he was beaten with a Lariat. Shimatani’s bad luck doesn’t end there. He found out afterwards that on the 6th February YaroZ show he will face Kohei Sato in a Kickboxing Match! On the bright side at least Shihomi Yoshino will be the ring girl.

In other YaroZ news, the DDT staff realised during the announcement that the card was one match short from being completed. In an unexpected move, Yumehito Imanari and DT-YUTA from the DDT Video team stood up and volunteered to wrestle against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi at the show. DT-YUTA was a Union Pro wrestler many years ago.

Lady Beard, Reika Saiki, Keisuke Okuda and Yoshiko are all scheduled to appear at Sumo Hall. Also coming to DDT this March is “All Ego” Ethan Page! DDT promoted Page as the next big Canadian star to enter the company. In a video message Page said he is ready to take over DDT.
