3. Akito defeated Akira Jo with the Scorpion Lock (7:13).
4. Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated MAO & Yuki Ueno when Sakaguchi pinned Ueno with the God’s Right Knee (12:40).

6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita, Yuki Iino & Space Monkey defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takeshita pinned Paulie with the Fable (17:55).
7. Keisuke Okuda Local Triumph! Tsu Specialty Special Tag Match: Keisuke Okuda & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kota Umeda when Okuda pinned Umeda with a German Suplex (16:24).

The go home show for “JUDGEMENT 2019” was also a show for Keisuke Okuda to go home to. In front of his home crowd, Okuda got the win in the main event along with Naomi Yoshimura. Okuda just wanted to get the match over with and was leaving the ring when Yoshimura called him back in to address the crowd. Okuda didn’t want to get all mushy but he thanked everyone for coming to see the show today. He felt like he was going to die after taking chops from Kazusada Higuchi and kicks from Kota Umeda. The last time he wrestled in Tsu, he promised to come back with something like a championship. He wasn’t able to do that today but now that he is a part of DDT he will definitely come back to Tsu next time as a champion.

ALL OUT were victorious over DAMNATION in their final skirmish before Sumo Hall. Now all that is left is for the big matches to happen. Daisuke Sasaki warns that if he loses to Konosuke Takeshita he will have to retire and dissolve DAMNATION. He claims to never lie either.

The Naomi Kingdom reunion was completed with the presence of Akira Jo for a match but he lost to Akito.

Saki Akai debuted a new finishing move inspired by the work she is doing for a stage play based on Fate/Grand Order (she is playing the role of Quetzalcoatl in the show and in one scene does a Diving Cross Body off of a stage prop onto a group of people below). The move starts off with her putting the opponent in an Abdominal Stretch like hold then she jumps over and twists it into a Crucifix Driver. She used the move to pin Kazuki Hirata in their tag match.

Shinjuku FACE

5. 4 Way Tag Match – No Tag Rules: KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Akito & Shunma Katsumata, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie and Kota Umeda & Kouki Iwasaki when KUDO pinned Katsumata with the Diving Double Knee Drop (11:10).
6. Beer Garden Specialty King Of DDT 2018 Customer Lottery 8-Man Tag Match: Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo when Hirata pinned MAO with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (18:41).

The annual Fan Lottery tag match gave us HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi in the main event. Sasaki and Endo wanted to start the match in a neutral corner together but Endo’s teammates had to drag him over to their side of the ring. Sasaki and Endo did end up working together until Bailey & MAO wiped them out with the Skylab Hurricance. Hirata rolled out of the way from MAO’s Cannonball 450. That gave Sakaguchi the chance to hit the God’s Right Knee to MAO and Hirata rolled him into the Miracle Cradle for the three count.

Hirata celebrated and once more showed that the “small fish” in this year’s King Of DDT is on a miracle run! The DDT roster was brought out to the ring for a last round of drinks together along with some dancing. Sanshiro Takagi promoted the busy schedule for the rest of the year. We have the next “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” in two days time, there are trips to Nagoya and Osaka, there are the monthly Korakuen Hall shows, there is the Dramatic General Election in September and finally of course there is Sumo Hall on 21st October.

Danshoku Dieno, Saki Akai, Toru Owashi and Yasu Urano were given 3 minutes to finish their match before Hisaya Imabayashi could tell his scary story. This was Ueno’s first time taking part in the tradition and he told everyone he had trained himself not to get scared. When Imabayashi came out something strange happened. There was the spirit of a dead child (Yuni) piggybacking on him! Everybody could see him except for Imabayashi and Ueno. Imabayashi was feeling too ill to notice anything while Ueno’s training was turning out to be effective. Ueno convinced Imabayashi to increase the match time limit to 5 minutes. The match went on as normal until the child decided to get in the way and scare all of the wrestlers, except for Ueno who tried not to notice him. The time elapsed and the bell rang so Imabayashi could start his story.

However midway through the story Imabayashi broke into a coughing fit. Dieno suggested he should take a rest and leave. It turned out to be a ruse and Imabayashi made Dieno faint by pointing at him and shouting “It’s you!” He then did it to Ueno, then Akai, then Owashi and finally Yukinori Matsui. Imabayashi then brought out his Atsushi Onita impression and spat water into the audience while “Wild Thing” played. The child spirit joined in until Imabayashi collapsed and died. The lights went out and a spotlight shined over the child…

“I wonder who is next… It’s you!”

Match #3 was in jeopardy when Makoto Oishi came out in his casual clothes and a backpack. He told everyone he came out to say goodbye because he is quitting DDT! Oishi blamed Takagi for burning him out with useless jobs. One example was Takagi making Oishi collect 60 flashlight pens the night before the Tokyo Idol Festival only to never use them at the wrestling matches held there. Takagi also took Oishi’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet from him recently. Super Sasadango Machine offered to hand over his Gauntlet to Oishi but it was turned down out of principal. Oishi isn’t going to team with Takagi today because he is quitting! Sasadango & Nobuhiro Shimatani came up with an idea. Oishi can team with them so they can all beat up Takagi instead. The match went ahead and turned into a crazy mess of slams onto beer cans and plastic cases. The numbers game was too much for Takagi and Oishi pinned him to get his revenge. Oishi’s opinion on everything suddenly changed. DDT is the best! Takagi is the best boss a guy can have! Oishi would do anything for him. We are Dramatic Dream Team!

Antonio Honda went down with a sudden case of love sickness so A.YAZAWA was brought in to replace him in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match. YAZAWA and Kazusada Higuchi danced and drank the night away to different songs until they fell asleep. Matsui almost counted them out when “Thriller” played and the two rose up to dance like zombies. This continued on until Higuchi pinned YAZAWA.

The Naomi Kingdom look to be making themselves comfortable in DDT after a win over RENEGADES.

Kota Umeda is back from injury and made his return in the 4 Way Tag Match. Everybody agreed to make the match No Tag rules so everyone was free to swap out when they wanted to.

And with that, Fighting Beer Garden 2018 has ended! I need a drink.


DNA “DNA 46 ~OSAKA’S FIRST EXPANSION! WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE DNA?~” Results

DNA “DNA 46 ~OSAKA’S FIRST EXPANSION! WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE DNA?~”, 16/07/2018
Osaka Konohana Community Hall
220 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura & Koju Takeda defeated Katsumi Oribe, Yuto Kikuchi & Yuki Aoki when Shimatani pinned Kikuchi with a Cradle after a Sliding Elbow Smash from Shimomura (10:38).
2. Kouki Iwasaki & Tomoya Hirata defeated Baliyan Akki & Rekka when Iwasaki submitted Akki with a Triangle Choke (8:32).
3. MAO & Rising HAYATO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when MAO pinned Iino with the Cannonball 450 (12:03).
4. TORU defeated Shunma Katsumata with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (10:59).
5. Ryota Nakatsu Vs Sammy Guevara ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
6. Irie-gun Vs Naomi Kingdom!: Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase by Referee Stoppage when Okuda used a Torso Sleeper Hold on Watase (12:39).
7. DNA Naniwa Summit Decisive Battle!: Naomi Yoshimura defeated Yuki Ueno with the Throwaway Power Bomb (22:36).

On the penultimate DNA show, Naomi Yoshimura gave a heartfelt speech after the main event. Being from Osaka himself, Yoshimura wanted many people to come see DNA in this area for the final time today. He and Yuki Ueno have had many matches against each other. Today he could feel Ueno’s momentum as they wrestled and normally that would be deserving of a handshake so they could reconcile their differences. Maybe this rivalry deserves a happy ending because Ueno and also Kota Umeda will soon be moving up to DDT. Yoshimura has also decided his future path. As long as Yoshimura wrestles he cannot lose! With a rebellious heart on his side Yoshimura will never lose again! Today is Yoshimura’s happy ending!

The match between Irie-gun and Naomi Kingdom turned into a ringside brawl with wrestlers getting throw into the seats on two sides of the room. Keisuke Okuda countered Mizuki Watase’s Back Drop into a Sleeper Hold. Okuda then wrapped his legs around Watase to leave him helpless until the referee called for the bell. Another brawl broke out after the match which led to Shigehiro Irie chasing Okuda & Akira Jo out of the ring.

A knee injury prevented Kota Umeda from wrestling on the show so Ryota Nakatsu from BASARA was brought in as his replacement. Nakatsu took on Sammy Guevara in a bout that was too close to call. Neither could get the win by the time the time limit expired. Nakatsu thanked Guevara for the match and promoted BASARA’s show at Osaka Okinawa Hall on 22nd July. He forgot to bring tickets so he advised everyone to go buy them at the nearest convenience store so his employers won’t get angry at him.

A missed Spear from Yuki Iino accidentally hit Konosuke Takeshita instead of MAO. From there Iino was outnumbered and taken down by a Missile Dropkick from Rising HAYATO. MAO then hit the Cannonball 450 for the win.

4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Battle Royal Survival Triathlon Rules: Konosuke Takeshita defeated KUDO (c), Toru Owashi, Masahiro Takanashi, Saki Akai, Nobuhiro Shimatani and Saori Anou (10:00).

4e. Konosuke Takeshita defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani (c) with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the Iron Man Title (9:08).

-. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Akari Suda defeated Konosuke Takeshita (c) by Referee Stoppage with an Octopus Hold (9:07 pm).
*Akari Suda becomes the 1,327th champion.
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo defeated Kota Umeda with the Modified Cross Facelock (11:12).
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Antonio Honda when he stripped off Honda’s bra (13:42).
*V3 for HARASHIMA.

Maybe it was skill or maybe it was blind luck but HARASHIMA defeated Antonio Honda in the Blindfold & Bra Match. At one point Honda rolled out of the ring and HARASHIMA tried to chase after him. Honda pulled the shirts off of Yuki Iino and Nobuhiro Shimatani when they stood too close to him. They were both wearing bras underneath even though it wasn’t mandatory for them to do so. Back in the ring Honda applied an Octopus Hold to HARASHIMA and succeeded in unhooking his bra. HARASHIMA defended himself well so Honda rolled him into a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch. That was a grave mistake because the positioning allowed HARASHIMA to unhook Honda’s bra and strip it right off him by kicking out of the hold, resulting in a victory for HARASHIMA! After the match he said he hasn’t decided on the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. For now his focus is on winning the KO-D Openweight Title from Shigehiro Irie on 22nd July!

Another good effort from Kota Umeda that just wasn’t enough in his latest match of the Mad Dog Trials. Dick Togo’s ring awareness allowed him to trap Umeda in the Cross Facelock several times. The one that made Umeda finally tap out was transitioned into a modified version of the move that looks similar to the Dick Killer. Togo thinks Umeda can still grow into becoming the so called “Mad Dog” that he claims to be but for now he is still in the stage where he should be establishing a style for himself. His advice to Umeda is to wrestle more and more because pro wrestling is more than a career, it’s an experience.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was up for grabs in a 10 minute long Battle Royal. The champion KUDO had Masahiro Takanashi fighting by his side against the rest of the field but the chaos was too much to handle. Nobuhiro Shimatani found his moment to strike and he pinned KUDO with a School Boy to win the title. Everyone ganged up on him until Saori Anou found her spot to win the belt with a Fisherman Suplex. KUDO had a change of heart and decided to protect Anou by fending off those who attacked her including including his friends Takanashi and Saki Akai. Anou didn’t appreciate KUDO’s aid and she kicked him out of the ring. She got into a back and forth with Akai until Akai pinned her with a Diving Cross Body. Shimatani got the title back with a Small Package with two minutes left to go. Konosuke Takeshita made his presence felt by giving Shimatani a Brainbuster onto the title belt. Takeshita got the pin and stayed as champion for the final minute of the match.

The Battle Royal was over but there were still people who wanted the Iron Man Title. Yuki Iino tried to pin Takeshita with a School Boy outside the ring but he kicked out. Danshoku Dieno then ran out and gave Takeshita the Lip Lock in the ring. He went for the pin but Sanshiro Takagi suddenly broke it up by throwing a chair at Dieno! Takagi invited this week’s special guest Akari Suda from SKE48 down to the ring so she can become the champion! Yukinori Matsui was against the idea but immediately changed his mind when Suda shook his hand. Takagi gave Takeshita a Stunner then Suda locked him into the Ocotpus Hold, the dreaded finishing move of World Idol Pro Wrestling star Octopus Suda! Takeshita clearly did not give up but Matsui ruled he was knocked out and rewarded the Iron Man Title to Suda! Takagi warned Suda that she may be attacked by people who want the championship at any time. Suda asked Takagi if he can protect her if that is the case.

The 3 Way Trios match wasn’t held under Hardcore rules but MAO still used a plastic toy hammer on some of his opponents during the match. Sammy Guevara and Facade ran circles around the rest of the participants and floored them all with dives out of the ring. Guevara then finished off Daiki Shimomura with the 630 Splash to give Irie-gun the victory. Tetsuya Endo wants MAO to know that their KO-D Tag Team Titles match on 22nd July won’t be a Hardcore match so he better leave the weapons at home. Mad Paulie stole some pictures of Facade from the merch stand. Endo scolded Paulie until he found a picture of Saori Anou among them.

The BIG LOVE between Daisuke Sasaki and Asuka is strong for the most part. Well there was that moment when Sasaki accidentally hit Asuka with a Clothesline but that honestly was an accident. Asuka recovered and countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstasy into a Choke Slam of her own. She then pinned Oishi with the Moonsault. Sasaki begged Asuka to forgive him after the match. What he did was the biggest tragedy of this century and he promised to never do it again. Asuka said “BIG LOVE!” to Sasaki and they hugged. When asked about their upcoming singles match against each other at Korakuen Hall, Sasaki told everyone to look forward to it because they will show love to each other in the ring.

With the future of DNA up in the air, the Naomi Kingdom are looking to the future and it involves finishing off their rivals on the final show. Keisuke Okuda doesn’t care where they end up because he isn’t afraid of anything. If all of the juniors below him have fear then they should stop wrestling. Naomi Yoshimura wants to take down Yuki Ueno once and for all before DNA is done. After that he will be free to do what he wants whether it is in DDT, DNA or anywhere else in the company.

Akito’s submission skills got him out of a jam. He reversed a Figure 4 Leg Lock from Yuki Ueno to grab the victory.

Danshoku Dieno didn’t let his one show suspension from the main Maji Manji card let him down. He came out for his dark match with cans of beer ready to get the crowd fired up! He was also drinking to promote the Beer Garden shows taking place in August. He invited Rekka to join in the fun and they both wrestled while drinking. It got a bit out of control when they spat beer with each other and used the beer cans as weapons.

6. Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo when Katsumata pinned Okuda with the ¡Hasta la vista! (15:03).
7. Kota Umeda defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Umeda Driver (17:00).

Kota Umeda cements his place at the top of DNA with a decisive victory over Naomi Yoshimura. He overcame everything Yoshimura threw at him including a chairshot that was done to block Umeda’s Tope Con Hilo. Umeda found a counter for Yoshimura’s Power Bombs at almost every opportunity. On offence, Umeda’s kicks and knee strikes chipped away at Yoshimura until he fell to the Umeda Driver. After the match Umeda called out Yoshimura for trying to take over DNA during his absence. Then when Umeda came back, Yoshimura had the Naomi Kingdom backing him up. It took months of waiting but they were finally able have their match and end their conflict today. Umeda offered to shake Yoshimura’s hand. Yoshimura wanted to resist but he conceded defeat and accepted it before leaving with the rest of the Kingdom. Umeda ended the show by telling the fans that a good wave is coming to DNA and he is looking forward to seeing everyone at the next couple of DNA shows this summer.

The other Naomi Kingdom members also lost their match today to ALL OUT. An ambush at the venue’s stairway where the wrestlers entered through gave Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo the advantage at first. But Akito & Shunma Katsumata persisted until they found their opening. Katsumata kept Okuda in the ring and stunned him with a Buzzsaw Kick before getting the three count with the ¡Hasta la vista! Lightning Spiral.

Ryota Nakatsu returned to DNA to beat Kouki Iwasaki. That result isn’t the end of their rivalry. Now Iwasaki wants to return the favour and go have a match in BASARA! Nakatsu is open to the idea but isn’t sure if Iwasaki has the guts to go by himself like he did today.

Things are looking good for Mizuki Watase. Today’s win means he now has two Right To Challenge Gauntlets in his possession! He likes the idea of collecting all of them so maybe he will chase after the three remaining ones. Also Koji Kanemoto enjoyed teaming with him so much that he wants to do it again.

Yuki Iino returned to action with a hard hitting match against Konosuke Takeshita. Iino’s big moves were Spears and rugby tackles. He also got into chop battles but his momentum was cut short with a Lariat. Takeshita put him away with the German Suplex. Iino was disappointed with the loss but he felt comfortable handling the pressure of fighting one of DDT’s main eventers.

The DNA side score another big victory over the Naomi Kingdom! But there wasn’t time for celebrations. Yuki Ueno went straight to the point and challenged Naomi Yoshimura to a singles match on the next DNA show. It was accepted and the match takes place on 3rd June in Shinjuku. Ueno said he will punish the Naomi Kingdom and a win over Yoshimura might end their feud for good.

Ryota Nakatsu and Kouki Iwasaki got into blows after Match #4. After they were pulled apart Nakatsu yelled at Iwasaki until Iwasaki threw a chair at him. Nakatsu challenged him to a match next month.

Yuki Iino announced his first match back from injury will happen at the 3rd June show. His opponent is Kota Umeda. Iino wants to beat Umeda and take over his role as DDT’s next rising star.

Choun-Shiryu and Rekka put aside their differences after their match. Rekka said that he fought with all his strength and lost but he was still happy to wrestle Shiryu. Shiryu said that Asia is moving quickly with the times. According to him the time for problems between nations, borders and race is over. As proof of this, Shiryu gave Rekka a New Beijing T-shirt as a gift and asked him to represent New Beijing at the next DNA show. Rekka accepted because they are now friends.

At the start of the show Daiki Shimomura pointed out that there are less fans in the crowd than usual today. He encouraged everyone to raise their efforts to have exciting matches for those who came to see them.
