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).

Lastly as if the show wasn’t enough of a rib on Ken Ohka, Ishii has added him to the 90’s joshi tribute match. Ohka has promised to do the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex in that match.

4. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda
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.

Takagi wants Makoto Oishi to experience this match and convey the charm of llave wrestling.
