*V1 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The run of victories the Bakuretsu Sisters have been racking up was brought to an end today by the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Things were going well for the challengers until Yuki Aino’s Side Suplex was countered into a Complete Shot by Yuka Sakazaki. Sakazaki hit a Sliding Lariat and Mizuki followed up with the Diving Foot Stomp. One Magical Magical Girl Splash later and it was a first successful defence for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Sakazaki hugged Nodoka Tenma after the match, finally paying attention to her. Mizuki said the first title defence is always hard. Sakazaki said today is the beginning of a long journey for them but she thinks it’s fun to work hard like this. The Rabbits ended the show by wishing everyone a Happy Halloween.

Hyper Misao was the first person to welcome Priscilla Kelly back to Japan. However she still remembers their match from Korakuen Hall back in August and wants to get revenge for her defeat. Kelly was able to lick both Misao and Miyu Yamashita during the match. She also licked the TOKYO Princess Title belt after the match was over. Yamashita described Kelly’s wrestling rhythm as being different from the other girls, probably because she is a foreign wrestler. Yamashita was distracted by Kelly’s licking antics but she hopes to hit the finishing blow in their title match next week. Kelly doesn’t care that the match is taking place in Yamashita’s hometown. She came here to win her first championship in Japan and they should be already engraving her name in the belt’s title history.

During the week Azusa Takigawa and Yuna Manase participated in a meeting with Sanshiro Takagi to discuss the Forbidden Three rules used by Tokyo Joshi Pro. They agreed that changes needed to be made but went in separate directions with their ideas for solutions. Takigawa wanted there to be 7 less strict rules to be in effect while Manase wanted no rules at all. Takagi decided that the winner of a match between the two would decide whose idea would be chosen. Nonoko was already chosen as the special referee due to her history with both women. Unfortunately she couldn’t handle the task at hand and cried whenever the pressure got too much to handle, preventing her from counting any pins. Soon Takigawa and Manase fought over Nonoko, pulling her in a tug-of-war until Nonoko pulled both of them into a Double Boinmaker. Nonoko began crying again and the match had to be called off. When both girls got back up they wondered if a draw meant there are now 3.5 rules in effect. Tetsuya Koda said that the original three rules are still active for now and they will revisit the problem on 27th October.

Holy crap Yuki Kamifuku won a match! It took 14 months but she finally did it!

Three trainees were delighted to learn that they will get their debut matches this November. Kyou, Yumi and Haruna all found out at the same time as the audience. They each said they were surprised by the news and promised to do their best. There was also an announcement that Mina Shirakawa will become part of the Tokyo Joshi roster in November. She posed in a bikini to celebrate and said that she thinks about pro wrestling every day ever since it came into her life. Her goal is to embody Glamorous Strong Style!

8. Yeah! Metcha Tag Tournament 2018 Summer – Final: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki defeated Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao when Sakazaki pinned Misao with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:16).

The makeshift team known as the Magical Sugar Rabbits came out as the winners of the first Yeah! Metcha Tag Tournament. The big story is the day before the show, news came out that the Muscle JK Strikers vacated the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles because Marika Kobashi is not ready to return from injury yet. When Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki won the tournament today they both asked Tetsuya Koda to give them the belts and make them the new champions. Koda told them no. The belts will instead be put on the line at Korakuen Hall on 25th August. Sakazaki & Mizuki convinced Koda to put them in the match. When he did, Maki Ito came down to the ring. At first Ito was annoyed that Mizuki is going after the Tag Titles without her. But she’s willing to let that slide if she gets to be on the other team. She even knows who her partner will be, Reika Saiki! Saiki told Ito she wants to wait for Kobashi to be cleared so the Strikers can get their belts back. However Kobashi gave Saiki her blessing to go ahead because she doesn’t know when she will return to the ring. Saiki isn’t thrilled with the idea but she accepted Ito’s offer. Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Ito & Saiki for the vacant Tag Titles is now set!

 

The battle of NEO Biishiki-gun was tense throughout. Sakisama and Yukio Saint Laurent were careful not to make the first mistake when the match began. They both tagged out without laying a finger on each other. When Martha and Azusa Christie faced off they fought using Martha’s mop as a weapon. The match heated up to the point where Laurent took out his anaesthetics and jabbed both Sakisama & Martha in the back with them. Martha grabbed her mop and used it to great effect on Laurent. Christie gave Sakisama the Christie Agape but it only got a two count. Sakisama caught Christie by surprise with the Versailles Foot Choke. Christie had enough strength left to kick out of a Running PK but the Academy Award put her down for the count. After the match Sakisama said she now understands how Laurent got Christie to act against orders. It was all so Laurent could cut out the weak part of Christie’s heart. She is no longer weak. She is now a good woman and it is time for her to fly away. Sakisama and Martha will be returning to Paris so they can spend the rest of the summer travelling the world. It was time for them to go and leave Christie by herself. Christie began to cry because she is all alone. She cannot do anything on her own.

 

Suddenly a voice called out to her. It’s Nonoko! She told Christie she is not alone. Everybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro is there to support her. Nonoko reminded Azusa that she was the No. 1 Announcer in Tokyo Joshi. She also brought up Konsho-gun and she handed Azusa an issue of Zexy Magazine. Azusa remembers she wants to get married as an announcer! There were celebrations all round until Nonoko accidentally hit Azusa in the head with the magazine. When she came too her first words were “Where am I? Who am I?”

Thankfully her memories came back to her at the end of the show. She reintroduced herself as Azusa Takigawa, a 30 year old woman who aspires to be an announcer. Rika Tatsumi pointed out that Takigawa turned 31 last month. Takigawa doesn’t remember that so she’s still 30.

-. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Sammy Guevara with the Beast Bomber (7:54).
*V4 for Shigehiro Irie. Sammy Guevara cashes in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Finally, finally, finally! Seven years since on from their first meeting and on his 10th attempt, Shigehiro Irie has beaten HARASHIMA one on one! HARASHIMA hit him with the Somato several times from different directions throughout the match. In return Irie hit the Beast Bomber enough times to put HARASHIMA down and out. Even though Irie’s attitude towards DDT has turned sour, there wasn’t any hatred shown towards HARASHIMA after the match. The two showed respect to each other and Irie thanked HARASHIMA for the match.

With the once impossible task now passed, Irie can now move on to his next goal as KO-D Openweight Champion. He wants to go abroad and defend the title against foreign wrestlers. Hisaya Imabayashi told Irie that DDT needs to know in advance who Irie will be fighting so they can authorise any title defences. Irie brought up the one way ticket to New York that Kazusada Higuchi was given after the 2016 DNA Grand Prix that he never used. Maybe Irie will take it for his travels. That like the overseas title defences is another thing DDT once promised that they never followed up on. Danshoku Dieno said if this is what Irie wants then it is Dieno’s duty as DDT Producer to endorse it. Irie said he already decided it will happen and Dieno will not get any say on the matter. Dieno tried to tell Irie that he hopes Irie will not lose the title but he was suddenly interrupted by Irie’s buddy Sammy Guevara.

The opening match today ended Sammy Guevara winning a Right To Challenge Gauntlet and he decided he will cash it in right now! Dieno was happy to tell Irie that the match was happening right now too. Guevara started quick with a Topé out of the ring but his high risk moves went against him later when Irie threw him over the corner post onto the rest of Irie-gun outside! Guevara recovered to hit the Cannonball 630 but that only got a nearfall. Irie put a stop to Guevara’s sprint by hitting him with the Traffic Accident Tackle and getting the pin with the Beast Bomber. After the match Irie called Guevara stupid, but he likes how crazy he is. If a fool like Guevara is brave enough to pick a fight with Irie then that’s the kind of guy Irie wants on his team. When the show was over, Irie decided on the official name for his unit. From now on they are RENEGADES. They are traitors to DDT and will rebel against the company!

Today was a sad day for DAMNATION with plenty of despair to go around. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie lost the KO-D Tag Team Titles to Mike Bailey & MAO. It took Bailey and MAO to jump off the same turnbuckle at the same time onto the champions to win. MAO hit the Cannonball 450 on Endo to pin him in the ring while Bailey landed a Moonsault onto Paulie outside the ring. MAO was even more satisfied because it is the first time he has decisively beaten one of his seniors and also because he and Bailey won the titles on their first attempt.

If losing championships were bad, having your heart broken was worse. Daisuke Sasaki shared the ring with Asuka but not for a wrestling match. Instead he wants to show the world all of the BIG LOVE they have for each other. Unfortunately Asuka admitted she was never seriously into him. Sasaki isn’t her type and he’s also too old for her anyway. The revelation sent Sasaki into a frenzy and he was no longer going to hold back. Asuka hit a Choke Slam but her Moonsault was blocked. Sasaki got a nearfall with the Diving Elbow Drop. He knew Asuka was beaten but he gave her one last chance to change her mind. All he wanted was for her to say “BIG LOVE”. Instead Asuka gave Sasaki the middle finger and shouted “Fuck you!” Sasaki put Asuka in the Crossover Facelock to make her tapout. BIG LOVE is dead. Now Sasaki is reborn with feelings stronger than hatred. He swears he will kill everyone!

The Uchicomi! company wanted a new spokesperson when Ken Ohka turned out to be a failure for them. Ohka won the match to become the first ever Uchikomi! Openweight Ultimate Champion so they are back to square one. However the Uchikomi! director Michiaki Nakano was impressed by Ohka’s performance in the match and is willing to give Ohka another chance. In the Battle Royal portion of the match, Alex Ace’s size allowed him to dominate the ring and eliminate several wrestlers by Ring Out. It was only miscommunication from Antonio Honda that led to them getting eliminated. Super Sasadango Machine was also able to win a Right To Challenge Gauntlet from Kouki Iwasaki when Rekka accidentally struck his partner, costing them the match.

The ALL OUT boys are busy preparing for their match against the Sendai Girls on Tuesday. To help them figure out what wrestling against joshi is like, they sent their cousins Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun to wrestle in their place against another “joshi” team of Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata. Actually Keiko Jr. might be Konosuke Takeshita’s aunt rather than cousin judging by her appearance and behaviour. Takeshita Jr. hulked up and ripped off her clothes before pinning Takagi with the Leg Drop. They won’t be around on Tuesday to see their relatives defend the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

Sammy Guevara won his Right To Challenge Gauntlet from Yukio Sakaguchi in the opener. Mizuki Watase, Jason Kincaid & Facade all hit Coast To Coast Dropkicks on Sakaguchi but Guevara’s pin was stopped by Sakaguchi’s teammates. Sakaguchi applied a Sleeper Hold but Guevara slipped out of it and hit a Running Knee to the back of Sakaguchi’s head for the surprise three count.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga grabbed Yuki Ueno’s tights during the Samson Clutch to beat him.

Former Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestler Nonoko has been appointed as the food producer for Beer Garden week. She promises to stimulate all five senses of the customers with her menu.

Kota Umeda will be out of action for the rest of the month because of his left knee injury.

The 2018 Dramatic General Election will begin on 4th September and end on 28th October. The 28/10 Korakuen Hall show will be a “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” special!


DDT “VIDEO TEAM BOX OFFICE – BETAMANIA” Results

April 23, 2018

DDT “VIDEO TEAM BOX OFFICE – BETAMANIA”, 23/04/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
172 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Goodbye Fukuda…Honorable! Crushing! Explosion! Special Exhibition Match!: Keisuke Ishii defeated Ryuhei Fukuda with a Baseball Chop (8:24).
2. Universal Serial Bus Title: Deepthroat (c) (w/ Genome Soldier A & Genome Soldier B) defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Doctor Bomb (10:50).
3. DT-YUTA Produce Match ~Rotten Bad And Rotten Edge~: KUDO defeated 726 with the Backspin Kick (8:32).
4. Betamania Death Match: Isami Kodaka defeated DT-YUTA with the Steel Cans Assisted Giga Ladder Break (12:22).

The unsung heroes of DDT are the members of its video team. The three main members of the crew are made up of men who have all at some point or another been pro wrestlers. After spending so long behind the cameras and hype videos, they were finally thrown a bone and got the chance to present their own wrestling show.

In the main event DT-YUTA was to take on a mystery opponent in a Betamania Death Match. His opponent was Isami Kodaka! The two share a history going back to Union Pro and their last match together took place on 7th March, 2009. Chairs, ladders, steel cans and a camera covered in barbed wire supported by a stand made out of lighttubes were all used as weapons. YUTA almost won with a Jackhammer but Kodaka kicked out. Kodaka reversed another Jackhammer into a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. He climbed the ladder with a steel can and landed the Giga Ladder Break for the win. Kodaka checked to see if YUTA was okay. He said without the Video Team, neither DDT or BASARA would be as interesting. He then struck YUTA over the head with a lighttube to show his appreciation. YUTA talked about when he quit Union 9 years ago he told Kodaka that he was taking a different road. Kodaka told him back then if YUTA made that decision by himself then it was the right decision. YUTA will always remember that moment.

726 was back in the ring for his first wrestling match since 2010. His match with KUDO was straightforward and 726 was able to hold his own for a while. KUDO won and he shared a beer with 726 afterwards. 726 said the match left him tired and he would have died if it lasted another 5 minutes. He said if KUDO’s wrestling tonight was a score of 100 points then 726’s score was 60 points.

“A Yumehito Imanari Match”: The introduction video showed Imanari being attacked somewhere. The enemy known as Deepthroat stole his USB key and held him in an Iron Claw to wipe out his memory. Imanari regained consciousness inside Shin-Kiba 1st RING dressed in special agent gear and armed with a cardboard box. He received a radio call from Hirotsugu Suyama explaining he must retrieve the USB to regain his memory. Two Genome Soldiers were about to approach the ring so Imanari hid underneath the box. The hiding spot worked at first but soon the Soldiers found him and they began to fight. Suyama called back to say he discovered a murder weapon beneath the ring. Imanari looked and found a steel chair to even the odds. Suyama kept calling to remind Imanari of his favourite wrestling moves as well as instructing him to counter attacks. The radio call was then interrupted by Nonoko on another frequency. Imanari got rid of the Soldiers by knocking them out with Sleeper Holds. Another interruption came from Keiko Takeshita, the mother of Konosuke Takeshita! She sent a message of encouragement to Imanari. Make it out alive and she will give all of her 85kg body to him, Konosuke will never know (Konosuke was watching the match in the venue and tweeted that she really weighs 90kg). After that, Deepthroat appeared. The messages from Suyama were getting faint and Imanari struggled to fight against the final boss. The messages got more and more distorted as Suyama figured out that nanomachines were interfering with the signal. In a flash he was gone and in his place was a video message of Sanshiro Takagi instructing Imanari to go buy snacks for the DDT office. That message made Imanari regain his memory then and there. He remembers who he is and what he must do. He must go shopping! But first he has to win his match. Deepthroat then immediately Choke Slammed Imanari and pinned him with the Doctor Bomb. Imanari? Imanari?! Imanaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarii!!!!

After the match Deepthroat consoled Imanari. He admitted he was really Kazusada Higuchi and there was a reason he took Imanari’s USB. He wanted Imanari to regain the hot soul of a pro wrestler and the USB featured something very important. He showed it on the screen. It was a picture of Imanari with Mitsuharu Misawa and Kenta Kobashi taken back when Imanari was a junior high school student. Higuchi wanted Imanari to remember the feeling he had when he met them. Imanari said he always wanted to be a pro wrestler but he had so much on his plate and he got a job on DDT’s video team instead. However thanks to DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling, Imanari is now able to live his dream and do both! Higuchi handed him over the USB and Imanari accepted it as if it was a championship. He then remembered he had to go shopping for snacks.

Ryuhei Fukuda relied entirely on the rest of the video team to help him out against Keisuke Ishii. When Fukuda was at risk of losing to a Cobra Twist, the team played a hidden video of the referee Yuya Okada talking to an unidentified woman. Apparently this was something Okada did not want anybody to see. Yusuke Kubo attacked Ishii while the ref was distracted. Fukuda then got the upper hand on Ishii by throwing power in his eyes. More scandalous videos kept Okada distracted while the Samurai! TV cameramen stopped Ishii from doing a Power Bomb. Ishii fought them all off and struck Fukuda with a big baseball pitch of a chop to keep him down for the count. Fukuda thanked Ishii for the match and told a story about how he joined DDT’s video team. He got the job even though he was not a wrestling fan. He also did not get along with some of his colleagues at first. It was when Ishii and Shigehiro Irie brought him out for a meal that Fukuda began to open up and get out of his shell. He wished Ishii luck in his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match happening later this week.

Minoru Fujita and Shinichiro Tominaga were the MCs for the show. They weren’t quite sure what to do with their roles but were still able to move the show along. Their final words to close out the show were “Well, pro wrestling is really nice.”

The show ended with all of the Video Team taking up their equipment and going back to work.

*Miraclians fail in V3. NEO Biishiki-gun becomes the 2nd TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!

NEO Biishiki-gun won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles but that was not enough to satisfy Saki-sama. She attacked Yuka Sakazaki after the match and complained that the title belts are worthless compared to the beauty and strength of NEO Biishiki-gun. When she threw the belts aside, Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan entered the ring to confront her. Saki-sama called them pigs but Nodoka said pigs are stronger than the doll store clerks you find in Harajuku. The BRAVE☆MATES threw out a challenge for the belts and Saki-sama agreed to having the match in Nagoya.

Nonoko’s final match in Tokyo Joshi Pro ends with a win over Maki Ito. Nonoko’s chest guarded her from Ito’s Headbutts until Nonoko was able to hit the Pai Fly Flow for the pin. For her graduation ceremony she received gifts and bouquets from Marika Kobashi, Yuna Manase, Yuu and Rika Tatsumi. Tatsumi also prepared a speech for Nonoko, talking about how close together their debuts were (one month apart) and also how they lived together for a while. Tatsumi calls Nonoko an indispensable part of Tokyo Joshi and the place will be lonelier without her. Tatsumi will support whatever activity Nonoko will move onto next and hopefully in return Nonoko will make her a delicious meal again. Nonoko said she never found a place like Tokyo Joshi that let her celebrate life so much. Last year she read an article in Zexy magazine about a bride talking about how wonderful her wedding was. Today Nonoko feels the same way. There are so many things she learned here and everyone has become family to her, even her rivals. Nonoko received her paper tape and celebrated her graduation when Azusa Christie appeared. Christie handed her one last bouquet and left before the commemorative group photo was taken.

Hyper Misao came up with an idea to help Yuna Manase prepare for her title match against Miyu Yamashita. Misao brought along a homemade cardboard championship and pretended to be Yamashita so Manase could learn how to fight her. The problem was Misao didn’t know how to act like Yamashita and couldn’t do her moves properly. Manase was able to beat her anyway and was rewarded with the cardboard belt.

Black Ribera is the mysterious wrestler wearing a Tiger Mask that appeared at the end of last weekend’s show. Shuichiro Katsumura was called the Real Tiger Mask for his charity work after the Tohoku earthquake back in 2011 so that explains the link with the unknown masked wrestler that just appeared. However in this situation Katsumura is not playing the hero.

Samara’s stay in Japan will not be limited to Tokyo Joshi. She is also wrestling on this Ganbare☆Wrestling show with Brian Aki.

Katsumi Oribe will also be on the show.
