Aichi Nagoya City Kashiwajima Sports Center
210 Fans – No Vacancy

0. Exhibition Match: Yuki Ueno defeated Keigo Nakamura with a Crab Hold (4:42).
1. Yukio Sakaguchi & Makoto Oishi defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Oishi pinned Shimatani with the Miracle Ecstasy (8:13).
2. Asuka, Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Akito, Antonio Honda & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Asuka pinned Honda with the Moonsault Press (11:40).
3. Yukio Sakaguchi Marunage Match ~ Mascara Contra Cabellera: Ultraman Robin defeated Gota Ihashi with the Ultra Dynamaite (8:13). (Special Referee: Yukio Sakaguchi)
4. Kota Umeda, MAO & Yukio Naya defeated HARASHIMA, Kazusada Higuchi & Mizuki Watase when Umeda pinned Watase with the Umeda Driver (14:30).
5. Yuki Ueno defeated Daisuke Sasaki with a Crucifix Pin (16:08).
6. Nagoya Specialty! Miso Stew Special 3 Way Tag Match: Chris Brookes & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie and Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Brookes pinned Katsumata with the Praying Mantis Bomb (16:00).

The 3 Way Tag main event was crazy but Chris Brookes was able to navigate his way through the madness, picking off opponents when they didn’t expect it. When Konosuke Takeshita had Tetsuya Endo pinned in a Power Bomb position, Brookes broke it up with a Missile Dropkick. Brookes used another Swan Dive Dropkick to knocked away Endo while landing Senton style across Takeshita’s back. Brookes then took out Mad Paulie with an RKO before putting Shunma Katsumata away with the Praying Mantis Bomb. Afterwards Brookes again said that he doesn’t care if he’s facing Endo or Takeshita on 21st July. He will win the KO-D Openweight Title anyway! Brookes is also calling his team with Masahiro Takanashi the Calamari Drunken Kings.

There was a lot of shenanigans in the Daisuke Sasaki Vs Yuki Ueno match. Soma Takao tripped Ueno then later attacked him when the ref was down. Naomi Yoshimura got rid of Takao with a Lariat but Sasaki gave him a Low Blow when he wasn’t looking. Ueno rolled up Sasaki but the ref was still out of action. When he finally got up, Sasaki went for the Cross Facelock but Ueno countered it into a Crucifix for the upset victory. Ueno credited his warm up match before the show as the reason why he won against Sasaki.

Kazusada Higuchi was given a Choke Slam for the first time thanks to Yukio Naya. Higuchi called it an amazing move and a threat for when he faces Naya one on one. He is taking this match seriously and hopes it will be an attacker against another attacker.

Akito is warning Asuka that she does not know him as a singles wrestler and that version of him won’t show up until their DDT Extreme Title match. She also hasn’t experienced that kind of matches Akito fought in when he last helt the title so he is feeling relatively confident right now.

At the start of the show Ultraman Robin came out wearing a different mask than his usual design. He said his original mask was stolen and accused Gota Ihashi as the thief. During their match, Ihashi threw Robin into the special referee Yukio Sakaguchi. The clash was so painful that Sakaguchi was brought back to the locker room and Yukinori Matsui had to take his place. Ihashi had Robin beaten when suddenly another Ultraman appeared, this one wearing Robin’s mask. He put Ihashi in a Sleeper Hold. Ihashi pulled off the mask during the struggle to reveal it was Sakaguchi! He hit the God’s Right Knee to Ihashi and Robin finished him off with the Ultra Dynamite Lariat to win. Ihashi had to get his head shaved as part of the stipulation but only the middle was shaved of to match the mask’s centre ridge. Ihashi later reappeared with his head fully shaved.

The trainee Keigo Nakamura got to have an exhibition match with Yuki Ueno before the show began. It is not his official debut so a lot of the moves used were the basics.

DDT “SAKI AKAI TRIUMPH! ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOJI~”, 15/06/2019
Kyoto KBS Hall
368 Fans – No Vacancy

2. Yukio Sakaguchi, Antonio Honda & Yukio Naya defeated Hiroshi Yamato, Kota Umeda & Mizuki Watase when Naya pinned Watase with the Choke Slam (12:40).
3. Kazusada Higuchi Marunage Match ~ DDT Yuru-chara Rebellion: Pokotan defeated Doradori-kun by Disqualification after a Chair Attack (8:41).
4. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Sasaki with the Throwaway Power Bomb (14:47).
5. Japanese English Handsome King No. 1 Decision Match: Chris Brookes defeated Makoto Oishi with the Praying Mantis Bomb (9:43).
6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Endo pinned Katsumata with a Swan Dive Firebird Splash (16:22).
7. Saki Akai, The 4th Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty Special Tag: HARASHIMA & Saki Akai defeated MAO & Asuka when HARASHIMA pinned MAO with the Somato (17:44).

Saki Akai got to join in with HARASHIMA’s usual show closing speech.

A Lariat from Konosuke Takeshita was meant to be for Tetsuya Endo but he dodged it and Akito took the hit instead. Endo then took over with Shunma Katsumata and pinned him with the Spinning Torture Rack Bomb followed by a Swan Dive Firebird Splash.

The debuting Chris Brookes got to mess around with Makoto Oishi as the two tried to one up each other with little tricks and holds. Brookes said the match was just him adjusting himself so he can get ready for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. He has seen Takeshita and Endo’s matches before and thinks he can beat either of them for the KO-D Openweight Title. But first he wants to concentrate on tomorrow’s 3 Way Tag Match with Masahiro Takanashi as his partner.

Both Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are so sick of being kicked in the balls by Daisuke Sasaki that they figured out when he sets up the move. Sasaki pulled Daisuke Kiso into Yoshimura’s way but when he went for the Low Blow, Yoshimura had him scouted and struck Sasaki down with a Lariat. He hit the Throwaway Power Bomb and Ueno recovered Kiso to count the pin. Ueno said he and Yoshimura will definitely win the KO-D Tag Team Titles and bring the belts to DISASTER BOX.

The battle of the DDT mascots saw Yukinori Matsui somehow getting the brunt of the attacks. With the ref down, Pokotan brought in a chair but couldn’t use it because Matsui was about to get up. So instead Pokotan took off its head, made a dent in it, put it back on and passed the chair over to Doradori-kun. The trick worked and Matsui disqualified Doradori-kun, thinking he attacked Pokotan with the chair. This match was booked by Kazusada Higuchi. He said he couldn’t be in the venue to see it but somehow he showed up at the end of the show to lead the audience to the exit…

Yukio Naya gets his first direct win in DDT. He wants to gradually release his strength as time goes by. Tomorrow in Nagoya he will be even stronger.

6. I Am A Popular Man! Two Big Singles Match: Soma Takao defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Sorarina (11:09).
7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takeshita pinned Endo with a Crucifix Pin (16:23).

It was a bad day for Tetsuya Endo. First he was pinned by his enemy Konosuke Takeshita. An attempt to do a Handspring off the ropes was caught by Takeshita and turned into a Crucifix Pin for the unexpected three count. Then after the match Sanshiro Takagi entered the ring and gave Endo a Stunner. Hisaya Imabayashi asked if this meant Takagi was going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Takagi declined and said he only did it to tease Endo. When he left Endo said he will smash Takagi whenever he ues his title shot. And at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” when everyone is expecting him to be at 200% power, he will instead be at 300% power! When Endo left the ring, Takeshita gave the last word. He asked the audience if they wanted to see Takeshita Vs Takagi at Ota Ward? Only one person applauded. He then asked if they would rather have Takeshita Vs Endo? Most of the audience applauded. Finally Takeshita promised that if Endo is fighting at 300%, then he will be at 350%!

Soma Takao used a distraction with the referee to block Naomi Yoshimura’s Shonenba. Takao then kicked Yoshimura below the belt and pinned him with the Sorarina. Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno have said they will never forgive Takao for kicking both of them in the nuts during matches!

With Daisuke Sasaki out of action with food poisoning, Nerima Sting needed a new opponent. One was found from a nearby city, Kodaira Sting! Their match was interrupted by the surprise appearance of Man Man Kai Kind! He gave both Stings the Mandible Claw then left. Yukinori Matsui was later knocked out by a Nerima Stinger Splash which led to another surprise appearance. This time it was Dildo Love! Nerima easily got rid of him with the Scorpion Death Drop. Kodaira tried to put Nerima in the Scorpion Deathlock but Man Man Kai Kind reappeared to give him another Mandible Claw. Nerima then reversed the Scorpion Deathlock for the win.

The pairings of Yukio Naya and Kazusada Higuchi as well as Yukio Sakaguchi and Kota Umeda were provoking each other during Match #4. The two pairs have singles matches at Korakuen Hall on 30th June. Makoto Oishi encouraged Naya and Umeda to show their fire in those matches.

The match between Toru Owashi and Antonio Honda went off the rails when a chair was brought in. Honda placed the chair on top of Owashi then when he climbed the turnbuckles, Daisuke Kiso counted to three and declared the chair to be the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion! The match continued but with the chair still in the ring. A sudden game of musical chairs began and Kiso joined in. He sat on the chair when the music stopped and Yukinori Matsui then counted to three. Now Kiso is the Iron Man champion! Honda tried to use Gongistune on Kiso but Kiso used his own Gongitsune, tangling the two of them up in nipple pinches. Owashi gave them a double School Boy and Matsui counted the pin on both. That means Owashi pinned Honda to win the match and he also pinned Kiso to win back the title.

Asuka ignored Akito’s requests for a handshake before their match then booted him in the head after it was over. Akito’s thought process over their DDT Extreme Title match is an interview where Asuka said she can do anything. So Akito wants to use a match stipulation that Asuka has never been in before.

5. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when Sasaki submitted Ueno with the Cross Facelock (13:56).
6. The World’s Most Healthy Numazu Specialty! Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Akito pinned Paulie with an Inside Cradle (14:43).

Things were looking bleak for ALL OUT when for the second show in a row Tetsuya Endo threw Konosuke Takeshita over the top rope from the Torture Rack position to the outside. However Akito was the legal man and he successfully rolled Mad Paulie into an Inside Cradle to win the match out of nowhere. Endo still ran down Takeshita on the microphone. He’s gone past Yukio Sakaguchi, Keisuke Ishii and Makoto Oishi in his KO-D Openweight Title run so far. At Ota Ward Gymnasium Endo promises he will be at his maximum strength. Takeshita’s response is he will increase his own power levels on the road to “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. He will be at 120% when they wrestle at Kasukabe Hall next week then by the time they make it to Ota Ward he will be at 200%!

Takeshita also warned Endo about Sanshiro Takagi waiting for his chance to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Takagi came out and told Endo he wasn’t cashing in today. He is instead acting mature and being patient. Akito closed out the show by promoting ALL OUT’s KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot against the Sendai Girls and also his next DDT Extreme Title defence.

Daisuke Sasaki continued to attack Yuki Ueno after their match. Naomi Yoshimura came to the rescue and scared off Sasaki. A chair was thrown into the ring by Sasaki but Yoshimura threw it back at him.

At first the new team Big Boss Express looked good together. Sanshiro Takagi used a marker to scribble on Hiroshi Yamato’s back while MAO attacked Shunma Katsumata with an umbrella. The match went outside where MAO stacked Yamato & Katsumata on a table and Takagi jumped off a van to splash through them. MAO held his opponents up while Takagi got in the van and drove towards them. Yamato & Katsumura broke free and got out of the way. MAO didn’t move in time and was hit by the van! He was then pinned right there on the road. Yamato & Katsumura returned to the ring after the match to sing a victory song.

Sakaguchi and Oishi bowed to each other after their match. Oishi can rest easily knowing that he isn’t on Sakaguchi’s kill list.

A Choke Slam from Yukio Naya put Kota Umeda down long enough for Masahiro Takanashi to grab the win. Naya and Kazusada Higuchi both said they had fun fighting each other and are looking forward to a singles match together.

Match #2 featured a lot of teased kissing spots. Yoshimura was left frozen for a kiss from Nobuhiro Shimatani that never came. He didn’t snap out until well after the match was over.

Tetsuya Endo gave Konosuke Takeshita a Low Blow and then threw him out of the ring from the Torture Rack position before getting the submission win on Shunma Katsumata.

Yukio Naya tried to Power Bomb Makoto Oishi onto HARASHIMA but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. Naomi Yoshimura got Naya out of the way while HARASHIMA hit Oishi with the Somato for the win. Yoshimura said backstage that Naya is different from the other heavyweights in DDT. But that doesn’t mean he’s scared of him. HARASHIMA wants Naya to wrestle a variety of wrestlers in DDT so he can expand his potential.

Here is the list of the costume changes in Match #3. Masahiro Takanashi dressed as Antonio Honda, Honda dressed as Takanashi, Keisuke Ishii dressed as Hisaya Imabayashi, Kota Umeda was dressed as the referee, Yuki Ueno was dressed as Umeda, Imabayashi was dressed as Ueno and the referee was dressed as Ishii. Tomomitsu Matsunaga didn’t have to change costumes so he got to be himself.

7. Road To Wrestle Peter Pan! Special 3 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes

After their last KO-D Tag Team Titles defence, Daisuke Sasaki said that he and Soma Takao would pick who their next challengers will be. They went quiet for a few days until Sasaki emerged with an Amidakuji/Ghost Leg puzzle that decided DAMNATION’s next three challengers. Unfortunately the process was heavily flawed because the three teams picked were all impossible to book for one reason or another. Hisaya Imabayashi disregarded Sasaki’s choices and nominated proper teams instead. On this show Sasaki’s choice of challengers was himself and Yoshiaki Yatsu. Imayashi pointed out that Sasaki is already the champion so Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are getting the shot. Oddly enough Imabayashi didn’t sound negative on the idea of Sasaki having to wrestle himself.

Danshoku Dieno is trying to become immune to all martial arts in order to defeat the MMA master Shinya Aoki. His plan to do this is pit himself in a gauntlet of matches against pro wrestlers with martial art and combat sport backgrounds. Now I know what some of you are thinking. Why is he fighting a swimmer? Because Aoki proved last year that he is just as dangerous in the water than he is in the ring. The inclusion of Kabaddi is Dieno thinking outside of the box too.

9. KO-D Tag Team Titles – Souken Holdings Presents: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Tako (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano
10. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Takagi ordered Imabayashi not to book him on the show unless he is in the main event. The only way that can happen is if he cashes in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet during or after that match.

Sasaki’s Amidakuji puzzle selected Joey Ryan & Candice LeRae as the KO-D Tag Title challengers for “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. That’s impossible because LeRae is signed to NXT and it is also too late to endorse her for a visa. Sasaki offered to sign her up for a tourist visa but shut down into depression when Imabayashi said she already registered her details with Johnny Gargano. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano are the challengers instead, creating an unwanted Smile Squash reunion with Soma Takao.

If Ueno & Yoshimura win the KO-D Tag Titles on 30th June, then they will defend the belts against HARASHIMA & Urano. Sasaki & Takao will then be demoted down to teaming with Nobuhiro Shimatani in the opening match.

3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The last Amidakuji team was supposed to be the newly married celebrity couple Ryota Yamasato & Yu Aoi. Instead we’re getting Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato. It is possible that this title match will be cancelled if Sasaki & Takao lose the championship before the show. What is most likely to happen is the new tag champs will defend the belts in their place but DDT has not ruled out getting rid of the match altogether.

One last thing, DAMNATION have a four year plan in place for his personal goals. In 2019 they want to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles, in 2020 they want to win gold at the Olympics, in 2021 Sasaki wants to visit the moon and in 2022 Sasaki wants to get married to a divorced Candice LeRae in May of that year.

6. From Showa To Heisei And To The Reiwa! Matsuyama Famous Special 8-Man Tag Match That Keeps Running With The Times: Tatsumi Fujinami, Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Yoshiaki Yatsu, Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya & Rising HAYATO when Fujinami submitted Naya with the Dragon Sleeper (12:27).

8. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) defeated Yukio Sakaguchi with the Shooting Star Press (14:31).
*V3 for Tetsuya Endo.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s roaring rampage of revenge has been stopped dead by Tetsuya Endo. The only times Sakaguchi was able to put Endo in a Sleeper Hold was once over the ropes and a second time quickly afterwards. Endo made his opponent even more angry when he hit a Low Kick to Sakaguchi’s back. Sakaguchi responded in kind. It took a combination of a Sit Down Power Bomb, the Swinging Torture Rack Bomb and a Handspring Leg Lariat to put Sakaguchi in danger. Endo then finished him off with the Shooting Star Press.

The “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July is now set. Endo will be defending the KO-D Openweight Title against his biggest enemy Konosuke Takeshita! That is unless Sanshiro Takagi cashes in the last remaining Right To Challenge Gauntlet and wins the belt before that. Takagi says he will cash in while Endo is in a perfect state. Takeshita is happy to wait a little bit and let those two fight over the title if it happens before “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. Endo called out Takeshita for being Takagi’s favourite and he promised to beat Takeshita inside Ota Ward Gymnasium.

It was a fair effort from Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto but not enough to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Donaruto’s lewd exploits kept DAMNATION off their game. Stripping down to a gold thong and diving onto people can do that to an opponent. He wiped out Daisuke Sasaki with a Quebrada while Hirata and Soma Takao fought over the Viagra Driver. Takao got the upper hand and pinned Hirata with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb. DAMNATION’s next title defence will be at “WRESTLE PETER PAN” but Sasaki said they will decide who they will fight and also where. DAMNATION wants to decide everything by their ways.

ALL OUT had the honour of teaming with Tatsumi Fujinami for a special 8-Man Tag against a diverse team lead by Yoshiaki Yatsu. It was the first time Takeshita and Fujinami were in the ring together since their singles match back in 2013. Takagi tried adding lucha libre to the match and Rising HAYATO stepped in to help however he could. Yukio Naya stepped up to both Fujinami and Takeshita but the experience level was far too high for him to overcome. Fujinami would put him in the Dragon Sleeper to get the submission victory.

HARASHIMA was in a thankful mood as always. He was thankful to Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura for their part in DISASTER BOX’s victory today. He is also thankful for the fans for coming to see today’s big show in Matsuyama.

It was expected that Ryutaro Watanabe would lose to Hideki Suzuki but he went down fighting. He fought out of Suzuki’s Double Arm Suplex but Suzuki kicked him repeatedly until the referee stopped the match. Suzuki’s advice for Watanabe is to never run away if he wants to keep wrestling.

Saki Akai declined to shake hands with Mina Shirakawa until after their match. Akai rolled away from a Casadora and hit a High Kick, setting up the match winning Quetzalcoatl.

There were a lot of Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes on this show. After the opening match Danshoku Dieno was chased into the ring by Hiroshi Yamato and Pulp Bonjin. Dieno fought them off but Nobuhiro Shimatani snuck in and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Then in the Battle Royal the belt went from Shimatani to Mad Paulie to Asuka to the eventual match winner Makoto Oishi. The governor of Ehime Tokihiro Nakamura entered the ring for a congratulatory photo with Oishi but that was interrupted by an attack by Asuka and Toru Owashi. Governor Nakamura then surprised everyone by jumping on top of Oishi to become the new champion! Dieno chased the governor away then later came back to the ring with the belt, informing everyone he had won the championship backstage. Oishi gave Dieno a Low Blow and pinned him. Then Owashi gave Oishi a Choke Slam for the final title change of the day.

Former Shuten-dōji members Masahiro Takanashi and Kota Umeda faced off as one of Umeda’s final matches before he leaves DDT next month. Takanashi went for a bunch of Cradles until Umeda dropped him with the Umeda Driver.
