*V1 for SekiGuchi.

MAO quickly found out he was in for a rough night. He dove out of the ring onto Kazusada Higuchi during the main event. They then brawled over to the commentary area where MAO did another dive. This time Higuchi caught him and Power Bombed him onto the table, which didn’t break. Kota Umeda did what he could with his kicking moveset to stay in the match while MAO recovered. Together they were able to weaken Higuchi but Daisuke Sekimoto was always there to cut off their momentum. Sekimoto lifted Umeda up into an Argentine Backbreaker while Higuchi pinned MAO with the Doctor Bomb to mark a successful first defence of the KO-D Tag Team Titles. After the match Higuchi told Umeda he can challenge for the title again any time. Yuki Ueno then ran into the ring and asked if he can team with Umeda for that challenge. After all, Ueno did pin Higuchi two days ago. Sekimoto was surprised to learn his tag partner lost while he was away. Sekimoto doesn’t want that to happen again so he accepted the challenge and the title match will happen on the 22nd May episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”.

ALL OUT is in a slump and it continued with a loss to Shuten-dōji. When the match was over Konosuke Takeshita ran down all of the group’s problems. Akito is injured, he is no longer the KO-D Openweight Champion and Shunma Katsumata has been just bad. So bad that Takeshita now wonders why he asked Katsumata to join ALL OUT. Takeshita thinks he is the only person that can help Katsumata change so he challenged him to a match at the 20th May Korakuen Hall show.

This week’s special guest was Maria Nagao, formerly of AKB48. Makoto Oishi was so smitten with her that he turned on Danshoku Dieno during his match with Miyu Yamashita to impress her. Originally Dieno called Oishi to help him do his usual tricks and Oishi went along with it at first. But he was so worried about what Nagao thought of him that he decided to help Yamashita instead. Oishi tripped Dieno from the ropes and Yamashita rolled him over with a School Boy to get the win. As punishment for losing the match, Dieno had to take an explosive baseball bat to the ass. However they weren’t able to attach explosives to the baseball. To make up for that, Nagao struck Dieno with the bat and Yamashita then hit him with a giant paper fan to create a loud bang. Oishi challenged Dieno to a match on next week’s episode.

A referee bump led to DAMNATION attacking HARASHIMA with a chair. Soma Takao took the chair and attacked back but hit the ref in the process, leading to his disqualification. Sasaki was so distraught over his failed attempt to recruit HARASHIMA a few days ago that he refused to introduce his other “new pet”. Tetsuya Endo had a pet too and wanted to show it off. Sasaki wouldn’t let him because his pet is a bug and Sasaki hates bugs. Backstage Takao said he hasn’t forgotten about his DDT Extreme Title loss to Sasaki back in November. He wants a rematch.

Kendo Kashin was accompanied by NOSAWA Rongai while Gota Ihashi had Ken Ohka in his corner. Kashin’s unusual techniques got him out of some holds. Ihashi put Kashin in a Chickenwing and Kashin got out of it by biting Ihashi. He denied doing it then bit the referee’s arm and gave him a Low Blow. Kashin attacked Ihashi with a chair until Ohka ran in and did the Fire Spear to Kashin. Ihashi went for the pin but Kashin kicked out. Ihashi climbed the turnbuckles but was distracted when Hideki Suzuki appeared! NOSAWA threw a chair at Ihashi and Kashin flipped him to the canvas with an Avalanche Cross Armbreaker to make him submit. After the match Kashin’s group offered beer to Ihashi & Ohka. They all drank until Kashin, NOSAWA & Suzuki spat their beer in the other’s faces. Kashin then tried to force feed the commentary team when he walked past them.

Yuki Ueno avoided the Back Drop from Mizuki Watase and surprised him with a Frankensteiner for the pin. Shigehiro Irie said his team’s loss today was a fluke. Watase claims he had his shoulder up before three.


Break Open The New Door Of DNA, Ikemen Master Combination

June 30, 2017

DNA “FIGHTING GIG DNA EP.34 ~STARTING OVER~”, 04/07/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Global Futures: Mike Bailey & Cody Hall Vs Diego & Rekka
2. All Japan Major League Championship: Shiro Koshinaka & Kotaro Suzuki Vs Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani
3. Awake Your Eyes, Dai Suzuki! Seven Match Trial Final Battle: Hideki Suzuki, Jun Kasai, NOSAWA Rongai & Gurukun Mask Vs Dai Suzuki
4. Best Of High Flyers: Tetsuya Endo Vs MAO
5. Real Mad Doubt Confrontation!: Koji Kanemoto Vs Mizuki Watase
6. PREMIUM GIG – With That Thought ~Kazusada Higuchi Graduation Memorial Match~: Kazusada Higuchi & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Naomi Yoshimura
7. MAIN GIG – Break Open The New Door Of DNA!: Shunma Katsumata Vs Yuki Ueno

A press conference was held featuring most of the wrestlers competing on the show. Yuki Ueno is looking forward to being in the main event because it is a big opportunity. With Kazusada Higuchi graduating and moving up to DDT, Ueno thinks it is up to him and Shunma Katsumata to open the door and show everyone the new DNA. Katsumata sees Ueno as a mystery for him to solve in the ring.

Higuchi’s graduation will leave a large gap that needs to be filled. Naomi Yoshimura is up for the challenge. This is his chance to knock down the old regime and take Higuchi’s place on the top of the DNA mountain. Kouki Iwasaki sees his position in DNA under attack and he has to protect it. Ryota Nakatsu is back in DNA again just for the special occasion. He’d rather fight Higuchi than team with him but this match is all about Higuchi so he’ll go along with it to make some memories. Higuchi realises that everyone in this match has been his rival of sorts at some point and that’s just how he wants it to be.

MAO credits Daisuke Sasaki for making Tetsuya Endo into the wrestler he is today. Endo said he is indebted to Sasaki and he might give him 700,00 yen out of his million yen prize money. Endo thinks he can live with 300,000 yen.

All Dai Suzuki has to do to save his career is not lose to 4 wrestlers in 7 minutes. NOSAWA Rongai couldn’t attend the press conference so he sent Black Tiger VII in his place. Tiger doesn’t understand the stipulation for the 4 Vs 1 match and thinks the entire bout is disgusting and pointless. Ken Ohka appeared in the room after the conference ended to give a motivational speech to Suzuki.

The Young Donuts are looking to make an impact. Rekka doesn’t care if Cody Hall is over 200cm tall, he will do what he can to beat him. Diego wants to make up for missing DNA’s first show in Korakuen Hall. Hall is entering DNA aiming to crush the competition. Mike Bailey wants to call his duo with Hall Team Cakes.

DDT At Tokyo Gurentai Show

September 28, 2011

Tokyo Gurentai “TOKYO LOVEII ~ANOTHER CHANCE~”, 28/09/2011
Shinjuku FACE
390 Fans

3. X-LAW International Title: El Samurai (c) defeated Hikaru Sato with the Chickenwing Armlock (6:37).
*V1 for El Samurai.
5. Bird Rebirth ~ KO-D Great Adventure: KUDO defeated Chicken Boy with the Diving Double Knee Drop (7:26).
7. Tokyo World Heavyweight Title: Sanshiro Takagi defeated NOSAWA Rongai (c) with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb (18:09).
*NOSAWA fails in V1. Sanshiro Takagi becomes the 2nd Tokyo World Heavyweight Champion!

Right, let’s see if I can do this without resorting to any taxi related jokes…

After his little incident in February, NOSAWA Rongai was forced to take an absence from wrestling. He returned in June for Minoru Suzuki’s charity event and since then has been slowly trying to get back in everyone’s good graces. Today saw NOSAWA get back in the driver’s seat (damn it!) and gather together his Tokyo Gurentai chums to promote their next show. DDT and Union had some involvement at the event. Hikaru Sato lost to El Samurai in a match for the X-LAW International Title, a Mexican belt previously held by NOSAWA back in 2010. KUDO dispatched of the Chicken Boy faster than the cab ride that brought him to the arena (sorry). Finally, Sanshiro Takagi defeated NOSAWA himself in the main event for the Tokyo World Heavyweight Title in what was said to be a fare fight (sorry again). After the match, Takagi brought back memories of NOSAWA first working for DDT 14 years ago, only to get interrupted by KIKUZAWA who wanted a shot at the belt.


Barely DDT Related, But Why Not?

September 4, 2010

This has barely enough DDT involvement needed to justify being posted on this site. Plus I always get a good kick from Japanese indy sleaze of all sizes. NOSAWA Rongai will be celebrating his 15th Anniversary in pro wrestling by holding his latest “NOSAWA BOMB BA-YE!” event in Korakuen Hall with a card that looks like it was created through the Match-Maker mode on Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. DDT’s involvement will be Sanshiro Takagi entering a 15-Man Gauntlet match and Hikaru Sato fighting Masaaki Mochizuki (“MO-OH-CHI!!”) from Dragon Gate. The main event is like the best example of using the Random Select option from a video game.

NOSAWA does have history in DDT, being one of the few to hold its three main championships throughout his career. He is a former KO-D Openweight Champion, DDT Extreme Champion and was the first ever KO-D Tag Team Champion with Takashi Sasaki. Also the UWA Trios Titles that are currently defended in DDT were once held by NOSAWA and his Tokyo GURENTAI buddies.
