Dai Suzuki Injured, DAMNATION Mystery, Takeshita Bodybuilding, Sasaki Sends Assassin To Ohka

October 18, 2017

An update about Dai Suzuki was posted on the DDT website two days ago. The injury he suffered at “DNA 37” turned out to be a partially fractured left knee. He will be out of action with no prediction of a return date yet.

DDT “TOYKO RAMEN SHOW 2017”, 26/10/2017
Tokyo Komazawa Olympic Park

1. Tokyo Joshi Pro Offer Match: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Azusa Takigawa
2. DDT Pro Wrestling Vs Ganbare☆Wrestling: Danshoku Dino & Gota Ihashi Vs Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari

DDT and Ebisuko Tavern are coming back to the Tokyo Ramen Show for their annual outdoor wrestling match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6”, 29/10/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Marika Kobashi Vs Maho Kurone
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku
3. Syoko Nakajima Vs Nonoko

Some new directions are being taken among the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster after the last show. Saki-sama is now on her own after her maid Martha found her parents and left to be with them. Nonoko & Azusa Takigawa have split up and are going their separate ways to both become stronger. Whoever gets the winning fall in the main event will probably declare themselves the No. 1 Contender for the TOKYO Princess Title. Plus now we have the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles so the existing teams will be climbing for a shot at the belts too.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs DAMNATION
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles are up for grabs. ALL OUT are in the match because they were supposed to get a title shot against Shuten-dōji until KUDO got injured. DAMNATION was chosen to be the other team but their line-up is being kept secret for now. The group currently has four members but some of them are pretty busy right now. Daisuke Sasaki has his hands full with championships and other people’s money. Shuji Ishikawa is currently wrestling in other promotions. There has been something building between DAMNATION and Nobuhiro Shimatani lately. The rookie was tricked into thinking he was joining the group during the Seijo Hall show earlier this month but it was just a mind game to beat him up. He has also been positioned as their ringside attendant for their matches. Could he become a new member?

Konosuke Takeshita entered the 58th Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships this past weekend. He finished in 12th place and qualified for the 52nd All Japan Student Bodybuilding Championships happening later this year. However after discussing the event with his doctor, Takeshita decided to withdraw from the competition. The preparation for the Kanto event took a toll on his body and continuing on that path would also interfere with his pro wrestling schedule. So Takeshita will put his focus on wrestling from now on.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganjo Super Battle: Ami Kanda & HARUKAZE Vs Sumire Natsu & Saki
2. 3rd Generation Vs 3rd Generation ~I Am The Grandson Panda! I Do Not Need Two Pandas In The Pro Wrestling World~: Chikara Vs J-Soul Pandita III IV
3. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Shota
4. Ganbare The Tryout: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter Vs Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin
5. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka Vs X

Ken Ohka wanted Daisuke Sasaki to come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling for another match so he could win his money back. However DDT has a show on the same day so even if Sasaki wanted to come over he won’t be able to. Instead, Sasaki has promised to send over a hired assassin to keep Ohka busy. It won’t be a DAMNATION wrestler because they will also be at the DDT show. Ohka accepts the challenge, thinking if he beats this mystery opponent it will make him the No. 1 Contender for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title.

More Ganbare gimmicks are being created to encourage sales of Ganbare The Great masks. Ganpuro staff pretty much said that Yukihiro Abe and Ultraman Robin are going to be Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin.

The appearance of Andre The Giant Panda in Big Japan has spurred Ganpuro to bring back J-Soul Pandita III IV. The creature has not wrestled in over a year.

DNA “DNA 37” Results

October 12, 2017

DNA “DNA 37”, 12/10/2017
Kitasenju Theatre 1010
123 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Diego defeated Masato Kamino with the VHS (7:48).
2. Rekka defeated Dai Suzuki by TKO after a Referee Stoppage (3:17).
3. MAO & Daiki Shimomura defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Ino when MAO pinned Ino with the 450 Cannonball (10:33).
4. Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo defeated Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Okuda pinned Shimatani with a Face Kick (13:39).
5. Koju Takeda defeated Yuki Ueno with a German Suplex (10:52).
6. Kengo defeated Kouki Iwasaki with La Magistral Cradle (10:24).

Even though he was pulled from the show with a hand injury, Naomi Yoshimura still made his presence felt in the main event. He attacked Kouki Iwasaki with a chair outside the ring then when the referee was distracted from trying to get rid of him, Kengo kicked Iwasaki low. When the referee turned back to them, Kengo pinned Iwasaki with La Magistral Cradle. Yoshimura climbed into the ring after the match and was met by Yuki Ueno, MAO, Diego and Rekka. Yoshimura & Kengo fought both of them off and either threw them out of the ring or attacked them with the chair. Yoshimura gave an insincere apology about missing the match because of his injury. He and Kengo then called for anyone else in DNA to stand up to them. This led to the appearance of Kota Umeda! He cleared the ring with Dropkicks and sent Yoshimura & Kengo fleeing. Umeda said Yoshimura debuted in DNA during his absence so he can’t go around bragging about being DNA’s best. Yoshimura tried to brush Umeda off by saying he was injured but Umeda pointed out that Yoshimura is injured too. Umeda announced he is cleared to return to the ring and his first match since September 2016 will take place next month!

Last month they were teaming together but today Yuki Ueno and Koju Takeda were opponents. Ueno lost but he wants to continue wrestling with Takeda either as a team or as opponents. Takeda has a similar opinion and he wonders if there is something meaningful happening in their matches.

Keisuke Okuda showed a lot of disrespect to Mizuki Watase & Nobuhiro Shimatani in their match, furthering the grudge between the two sides. Shimatani kicked out of Okuda’s STO thanks to Watase breaking up the pin. Akira Jo got rid of Watase with a German Suplex. Okuda gave Shimatani another STO then kicked him in the head repeatedly until he stopped trying to get up. Only after that did Okuda pin him. Okuda continued to call the DNA wrestlers “elementary school students” then insulted the fans for paying money to see these students wrestle. Backstage Okuda complained about how uninteresting DNA is unlike IGF which is an amazing place! In Shimatani’s interview he said Okuda can break his arms and his legs but he will never break his heart. Watase apologised to the fans for suffering a “perfect defeat” today. He wants one more shot against Okuda to make it up for them and for all of DNA.

Dai Suzuki collapsed in pain after Rekka hit him with a Back Elbow and a Lariat in the corner. Suzuki somehow hurt his left knee during the moment and the injury was serious enough to stop the match.


DDT “NOBUHIRO SHIMATANI TRIUMPH BOX OFFICE! DRAMATIC DREAM TOTTEN 2017” Results

DDT “NOBUHIRO SHIMATANI TRIUMPH BOX OFFICE! DRAMATIC DREAM TOTTEN 2017”, 16/09/2017
Yamaguchi Kaikyo Messe Shimonoseki
160 Fans

1. Tetsuya Endo defeated Gota Ihashi with a Crab Hold (7:30).
2. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (9:21).
3. Shigehiro Irie & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Mike Bailey & MAO when Irie pinned MAO with the Beast Bomber (9:33).
4. Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii defeated Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata when Ishii pinned Oishi with the Tiger Suplex.
*Shimonoseki becomes a Gay Town.
5. Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda when Paulie pinned Honda with the Paulie Buster (12:16).
6. Nobuhiro Shimatani Regional Triumph! Shimonoseki Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takeshita pinned Shimatani with a Diving Body Press (14:56).

The spotlight was on Nobuhiro Shimatani today as DDT visited his hometown of Shimonoseki. With Smile Squash helping him out, Shimatani was given the opportunity to fight ALL OUT in the main event. But sadly it ended in defeat. Konosuke Takeshita took all Shimatani had to offer like the Fisherman Buster and Standing Shooting Star Press. Takeshita fired back with Big Boots, Lariats, Brainbusters and a Diving Body Press that Shimatani could not kick out of. Takeshita told everyone afterwards that Shimatani was originally a trainee in the same class as himself but ran away. He didn’t see him again until DDT’s first visit to Saitama Super Arena in 2015. He encouraged Shimatani to train with DDT again. Since then Shimatani got to debut under the DNA banner and now today he is in the main event in his hometown and gets to have the final word. Shimatani apologised to the fans for losing. He promises to become stronger when he returns.

When Antonio Honda put Daisuke Sasaki in a submission hold, he grabbed a microphone and constantly asked Sasaki to give up. Sasaki kept saying similar sounding words to annoy him. Honda later accidentally hit Kazusada Higuchi with the Bionic Elbow. Higuchi was too dazed to stop Mad Paulie from pinning Honda with the Paulie Buster.

Danshoku Dino’s victory today means he now gets to call Shimonoseki a Gay Town. He told the audience that Shimonoseki is now famous for five products: Pufferfish, Sea Urchins, Anko Paste, Whale Meat and Gay. Please go and taste all of them!


DNA “DNA 36” Results

September 7, 2017

DNA “DNA 36”, 07/09/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
235 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Daiki Shimomura defeated Masato Kamino with the Asai DDT (6:58).
2. Tanomusaku Toba defeated Dai Suzuki with the Backhand Blow (6:08).
3. Diego & Royce Isaacs defeated Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda when Isaacs pinned Ueno with The Zenith (11:01).
4. Yuki Ino “Knock On” Series – 1st Match: Shigehiro Irie defeated Yuki Ino with the Cannonball Drop (12:17).
5. Keisuke Okuda & Mizuki Watase defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Okuda pinned Shimatani with the STO (14:08).
6. Mike Bailey defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Green Tea Plunge (14:53).
7. Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo defeated MAO & Rekka when Yoshimura pinned Rekka with the Throwaway Power Bomb (18:26).

Naomi Yoshimura wanted to continue “practising” his Throwaway Power Bomb on Rekka after the main event. Diego ran out to rescue Rekka but was cut off by Yoshimura. Kouki Iwasaki then ran out and this time he was successful in protecting his friends. Yoshimura afterwards said he is looking forward to a match between him & Kengo against Iwasaki & Diego in DNA.

Iwasaki is keeping himself busy. His other feud in DNA that’s gaining steam is with Keisuke Okuda. In their tag match, Okuda & Mizuki Watase beat Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani. Okuda used the STO (which to him means Space Tornado Okuda) to pin Shimatani. Iwasaki, Okuda and Watase got into a brawl after the match. Okuda said that all the DNA wrestlers are just elementary students to him. Watase demanded him to stick around and fight him. Shimatani had finally recovered by then and offered to team with Watase for another shot at Okuda.

Shigehiro Irie wonders if Yuki Ino can grow big enough to become his rival when he returns from his excursion. Since Ino’s goal is to one day become the KO-D Openweight Champion, he relished the chance to fight a former champion in just his second wrestling match. He also got to experience just how powerful a former champion is.

Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda enjoyed wrestling together as a team today and both want a singles match against each other in the future.

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2017” Results

September 4, 2017

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2017 ~ LET’S GO TO NEVERLAND AFTER RYOGOKU! ALTHOUGH IT IS REALLY A NATURELAND ~ DDT 20TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL EXTRA EDITION VOL. 1”, 03/09/2017
Yamanashi Natureland Om
200 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

Special 5 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo, Mike Bailey & MAO, Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani and Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin SM Ki-san when Takeshita pinned Shimatani with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a table in the pond (67:04).

The Yamanashi Natureland Om park was home to one of the craziest series of matches DDT have ever put together. So it was only natural for them to return for more mayhem as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. Five tag teams were pitted against each other for the free for all. Konosuke Takeshita & Diego were there for ALL OUT, Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo were representing DAMNATION and Pigging 2017 sent forth Gota Ihashi & Nobuhiro Shimatani. Mike Bailey & MAO kept their promise to team again after “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”. Rounding out the field were Sanshiro Takagi and Ippanjin SM Ki-san, who turned out to be Munenori Sawa wearing business attire and carrying a snowboard. Takagi convinced Sawa to come over by lying about a campsite BBQ being held today. Sawa still agreed to be a volunteer pro wrestler for the day when he found out he was duped.

The match began in the open area plaza. Sasaki & Endo were armed with water guns while Takeshita & Diego brought out a barbed wire baseball bat. Everyone agreed that they were going a little bit overboard. Of course, the match spread out around the park. Takagi took the snowboard and tried to slide down a hill but fell over. DAMNATION shoved the heads of the Pigging wrestlers into toilets over at the restroom area. Bailey & MAO climbed up to the roof of the cookhouse hut and Moonsaulted onto everyone below.

As the match followed up the mountain path, Takagi found a can of hair mousse. He came up with an idea to spray the mousse onto his opponents and then try to set the mousse on fire! Because you know, that’s the kind of idea sane people come up with. Kazusada Higuchi appeared in the distance dressed for sumo. He threw aside Takeshita and Sawa but Takagi scared him off with the fire mousse. Takagi then found a Pico Pico Hammer and came up with the bright idea of setting it on fire with the mousse! He calls his creation the Shining Hammer. Takeshita & Diego fought back with a trash can and a stop sign until Higuchi reappeared and sent them down the mountain path.

A chain of Figure Four Necklocks was formed down the path. Ihashi took advantage of the opportunity by rolling his body all the way down the chain. He and Shimatani then grabbed the cameraman Yumehito Imanari and carried him into a nearby hut as a hostage. All the other wrestlers were given firecrackers and Takagi warned the Pigging wrestlers that they were surrounded. They refused to let Imanari go so the firecrackers were shot at them until they fled.

Sawa found a scooter and drove it down to the plaza. DAMNATION decided to fight the scooter with a truck. They ran over the others including Sawa on the scooter until the one man that could stand up to them did so. Higuchi used his sumo strength to not only stop the truck but push it back! Endo crawled out of the window and kicked Highuchi, then did a Moonsault onto him from the top of the truck.

Ihashi returned to the fight as a Big Zam with Shimatani by his side firing firecrackers at everyone. Takagi came to the rescue as a Gundam and he threw a clock tower at Ihashi! Bailey & MAO stopped Takagi with stereo Corkscrew Kicks. Ihashi felt so overheated in his Big Zam costume that he took it off and jumped into a pond to cool off. Diego threw Shimatani onto Ihashi with a Death Valley Driver off the ledge. Sawa then hit Diego with the Shining Wizard from the rocks. MAO saw Ihashi floating in the pond and did the Cannonball 450 onto him. Takeshita then dove onto everybody with a Cross Body into the water. Finally, Takeshita & Diego brought a table into the pond. Takeshita gave Shimatani a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the table into the water to end the match after 67 minutes of craziness.

6. Beer Garden Specialty Lottery 6-Man Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo, Shigehiro Irie & Akito defeated Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA & Daisuke Sasaki when Irie pinned Sasaki with the Beast Bomber (20:28).

Last call for orders came before DDT heads off to Sumo Hall. The Beer Garden finale featured some of the usual highlights like the Lottery 6-Man Tag Team main event. The two teams were put together by random draw with audience members pulling out the names. On one side we got Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA & Daisuke Sasaki as the trio of KO-D Openweight Champions. Their opponents were Tetsuya Endo, Shigehiro Irie & Akito. Despite being on opposite teams, Endo and Sasaki came to each other’s aid throughout the match. They even tried the Finger Poke Of Doom spot when they had to wrestle each other. Later Sasaki put Irie in the Cross Facelock and Endo kept his guard. Akito got sick of it and put Endo in the Scorpion Lock but Sasaki stopped him with a chairshot to the back. Takeshita gave Endo a Dragon Suplex but Endo immediately fired back with Tetsuya In The Sky. HARASHIMA and Sasaki collided by accident and that mistake cost them the match. Irie took advantage on a dazed Sasaki by hitting the Cannonball and then the Beast Bomber for the pin. The two DAMNATION wrestlers didn’t stick around for the closing speeches. Irie said he missed last year’s Beer Garden so to be here this year was enjoyable. He has a new goal today and that is to grow YaroZ.

Hisaya Imabayashi returned from the dead to tell his annual ghost story. He explained that he died last year but he made a deal in the afterlife that allows him to return to the land of the living once a year to tell his stories. A cold presence was felt in the ring and for some reason Nobuhiro Shimatani was sitting in the centre with his face painted white. Nobody else in the ring noticed him. After three minutes of wrestling around Shimatani, the time came for the story to begin. Imabayashi told the scary tale of the Coin Locker Baby and Shimatani began crying over it. Imabayashi finally acknowledged Shimatani, spat holy water and poured salt over him so he would leave the ring. He explained that Shimatani snuck into the segment because he wasn’t booked for anything else on today’s show. With the story completed, Imabayashi talked about DDT with the wrestlers. Danshoku Dino asked who his favourite was? Imabayashi suddenly pointed at Dino and yelled “It’s you!” causing Dino to faint in fright. He then pointed to Super Sasadango Machine. “It’s you!” Then Kazusada Higuchi. “It’s you!” Then Saki Akai. “It’s you!” Then Yukinori Matsui. “It’s you!” Then the audience. “It’s you!” Suddenly “Wild Thing” played and Imabayashi threw water at everyone. He thanked everyone and asked to be invited back next year. Suddenly two crying children entered the room and climbed into the ring. Imabayashi asked if they were lost. No, they were looking for their father. Imabayashi asked who is he. They pointed and screamed “It’s you!” Imabayashi introduced everyone to his two sons and told them he will go buy fidget spinners for them. But his sons handed him a letter from their mother. He read it and was in shock. The wrestlers then read it and were also shocked. The letter was shown on the screen and everyone was shocked. It read “The father is not you!”

Kazuki Hirata succeeded in recording his own version on “TOKYO GO!” that can be used on DDT UNIVERSE without being muted. A video was him recording the lyrics was played during his entrance to prove he made it. Makoto Oishi announced that since Gorgeous Matsuno was deported from Japan, his team had to bring in his Italian cousin Matsuno Collection A.T. as a replacement. Nobody believed it was him but Sanshiro Takagi is allowing him to stay in DDT until Gorgeous Matsuno’s exile is completed.

Before the show began, Cherry and Rekka demonstrated a pro wrestling training class to advertise the DDT Dojo. While Cherry was doing her exercises, the Tokyo Joshi Pro matchmaker Tetsuya Koda snuck into the ring and pinned her to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title!
