May 11, 2019

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2019 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAREKATSU BOWL~”, 11/05/2019
Nishi Niigata City Hall (Kobari Aoyama Public Hall)

6. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Meiko Satomura, Chihiro Hashimoto & DASH Chisako (c) defeated Saki Akai, Asuka & Hikaru Shida when Satomura pinned Akai with the Death Valley Bomb (14:34).
*V1 for Sendai Girls.
7. “Niigata Celebrities!” Super Sasadango Machine Local Triumph! Niigata Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Antonio Honda defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Super Sasadango Machine when Honda submitted Sasadango with the Manjigatame (12:51).

Antonio Honda admitted he was the unpopular wrestler today because he submitted Super Sasadango Machine in front of his hometown crowd. Sasadango unmasked himself during an Elbow Smash exchange with Honda. But when he went for the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock, Honda countered it into an Octopus Hold for the immediate tapout. Honda got a cold response from the audience afterwards so he gave Sasadango the microphone. That woke the crowd up and they cheered for Sasadango. He thanked the other wrestlers for wrestling him today, the DDT Extreme Champion Honda, “Mr. Ace” HARASHIMA and the “one man masterpiece” Konosuke Takeshita. Sasadango said he was suffering from burnout because of the Muscle show at Sumo Hall earlier this year. He wanted HARASHIMA to finish the speech but he and the others convinced Sasadango to do it himself.

The Sendai Girls still hold the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles after beating Saki Akai’s all star team of joshi wrestlers. Akai’s downfall came when she tried to do the Quetzalcoatl on Meiko Satomura. The move was cut off by Chihiro Hashimoto’s Lariat. DASH Chisako then hit a Diving Foot Stomp onto Akai. Hikaru Shida came to the rescue by blocking Satomura’s Avalanche Brainbuster but it was short lived. Hashimoto got rid of Asuka with the Albright German Suplex while Satomura pinned Akai with the Death Valley Bomb. Satomura gave Akai a disappointing look as Akai’s team left the ring.

ALL OUT then entered the ring to meet with the Sendai Girls. Yuki Iino faced off with Hashimoto until Takeshita told him to calm down. Takeshita said the two sides are currently 1-1 in their 6-Man Tag Title matches so it was time for a final challenge to settle this grudge. He announced Shunma Katsumata will be back at the end of May so the challenge should be a series of four singles matches as well as the deciding trios match for the championship. Satomura asked Takeshita if he was really up to the challenge then agreed to the stipulation. Iino told Hashimoto that he is the strongest primate and this time he will be throwing her around, not vice versa like last time.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s tunnel vision is making him vulnerable. His focus on trying to choke out Tetsuya Endo with the Sleeper Hold left him open to attacks from the other DAMNATION wrestlers a bunch of times. Sakaguchi did send Mad Paulie into unconsciousness with the move but when he got the move on Endo again, Daisuke Sasaki dropkicked him away. Sasaki & Endo were able to team together and pin MAO while Sakaguchi was out of the way.

Match #4 featured a special guest. The allegedly famous photographer Ki Tsurumi was invited to take high quality pictures in order to prove that pro wrestling is art. He was given permission to stand inside the ring so he could take pictures from whatever angle he desired. Yumehito Imanari got so into it he stripped down to his underwear to give Tsurumi something more provocative. Mizuki Watase & Yuki Ueno hated this because they wanted to take pictures of exciting wrestling. They argued until Makoto Oishi rolled Watase into the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to pin him. They all got together for a group photo after the match but Tsurumi saw Hiroshi Yamato across the room and chased after him for a sexy picture.

7. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Mike Bailey & MAO

With Hikaru Shida completing the team, Saki Akai is now ready to challenge the Sendai Girls. Shida wrestles in Sendai Girls herself so she is very familiar with Meiko Satomura, Chihiro Hashimoto & DASH Chisako. The one who wants to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles the most is Asuka because she wants to wear the title belts like an accessory. The way the team is laid out has Akai as the leader, Asuka as the sub-leader and Shida as the “New Member”.

DDT “BLACK OUT PRESENTS KING OF DDT 2019 THE FINAL!!”, 19/05/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
2. King Of DDT 2019 – Semi Final: X Vs X
3. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X

The official news update for this show is Maku Donaruto will be there! The unofficial news is Keisuke Ishii wants to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet on this show so he can face Endo for the KO-D Title. Due to the new rules that are meant to encourage surprise cash ins, DDT is currently in a position where they cannot promote Endo Vs Ishii for now and have to act like it won’t be happening.

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: Antonio Honda (c) Vs Akito

Something that Antonio Honda and Akito have in common is they both think their biggest career highlight involved the DDT Extreme Title. So it’s fitting the two will fight over it.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

During a press conference yesterday Endo was supposed to select one of the seven losers in the King Of DDT 1st Round to defend the KO-D Title against. However he struggled to remember any of the wrestlers he could choose from. Hisaya Imabayashi listed the names and Endo commented after each one. Kota Umeda? He’s the guy who always hurts his knees. MAO? He’s a fucked up bad guy. Mike Bailey? He’s that guy who can’t do anything without MAO. HARASHIMA? Endo hates him. Kazuki Hirata? Endo would choose him but Hirata is already wrestling for a championship at the show. Yuki Ueno? He was thrown away by his friend. Yukio Sakaguchi? Beaten by Daisuke Sasaki and he won’t stop crying about it.

What Endo didn’t realise was that Sakaguchi was in the building and overheard Endo’s comments. He crashed the press conference and attacked Endo, beating him down! Sakaguchi used Endo’s “Two types of people in the world” motto against him and said he is now on his kill list! When Sakaguchi stormed out of the room, Endo demanded that he be his opponent for the KO-D Title match! This won’t be a pro wrestling match, Endo says he will kill Sakaguchi!

The Big Catch Up

April 10, 2019

6. Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Keisuke Okuda
7. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo

Naomi Yoshimura was supposed to be on the show but family circumstances are preventing him from coming this weekend. He will be back in the ring wrestling again on the 14th.

I missed this but on 2nd April DDT announced that Keisuke Okuda will resign from the company at the end of the month and become a freelancer. His contract with DDT was originally just a one year contract but it turned out to be the shortest contract in the company’s history. Okuda is grateful for the opportunities DDT gave to him when he left IGF last year and he’s been a fan of the company since he was in junior high but he wants to move his career in a different direction and go on a new adventure. Okuda wants his big match before he leaves to be against Yukio Sakaguchi.

“Absolute” Ricky Starks is from Louisiana, USA and has been wrestling since 2012. Mike Rollins is from Ontario, Canada and has been wrestling since 2007. Rollins is normally a mild person but during matches he can switch personalities and turn into a mad man named “Psycho” Mike.

The current Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders are Kazuki Hirata (blue) and Keisuke Ishii (yellow).

5. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs X

It must have been fate for Tetsuya Endo to win the KO-D Openweight Title in New York. He was only there for around three days but to him it’s been three years and he has become a true born and raised New Yorker in that time. He wants to become the same kind of foreign KO-D Champion that Kenny Omega and El Generico were. To kick off his title reign, Endo is going to nominate his first challenger for a title defence on 28th April. He wants to pick an opponent he can beat 100 times out of 100. There is concerns among DDT management that Endo’s new American diet of hamburgers will result in him losing the high level physique that he’s been so proud of keeping up until now.

HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will announce their stipulation match for the DDT Extreme Title on 16th April.
