*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.
