7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles – Be Legend Presents: Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda (c) defeated Kouki Iwasaki, Mike Bailey & MAO when Ueno pinned Bailey with the Frog Splash (19:34).
*V1 for Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda.

The main event title match was entirely an DNA affair. Kota Umeda credited Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda for the victory and he thanked Takeda for coming over from Triple Six to wrestle in DDT and DNA. The team advertised the first DNA show in Osaka that will take place on 16th July.

Both Daisuke Sasaki and KUDO wanted to get in the way of Konosuke Takeshita and Shigehiro Irie’s situation during the 4 Way Match. When Takeshita and Irie did get to fight each other, Irie ended up getting the upper hand. At one point Irie gave Takeshita a Piledriver on top of Sasaki! KUDO missed the Diving Double Knee Drop to Sasaki and both of them were hit by Irie’s Running Cannonball. Irie got the win with the Beast Bomber to Sasaki. He told Takeshita afterwards he will take the KO-D Openweight Title from him by all means necessary on 29th April. Takeshita said he cannot lose the title to somebody who does not love DDT. He promised the Osaka crowd he will return to the city as the champion still.

HARASHIMA had to put up a bigger fight than usual when facing Mad Paulie given Paulie’s current state. Paulie brawled around ringside wearing a collar and leash around his neck. HARASHIMA grabbed the leash and pulled it through the ropes to choke Paulie against the corner post with the collar. Paulie overpowered HARASHIMA with splashes and a Fisherman Buster. But HARASHIMA recovered and knocked out Paulie with the Somato to win. He called “Red Paulie” strong but HARASHIMA is ready to challenge for the DDT Extreme Title so nobody could stop him today.

Keisuke Ishii is getting ready for a shot at Ken Ohka and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He feels that Ohka has been in bad condition recently and thinks he has calmed down from his “Major Wrestling” push for Ganbare☆Wrestling. In fact, Ishii said Okha has become weak ever since he got married! Ganpuro wrestler and DDT cameraman Yumehito Imanari got into an argument with Ishii over his opinions during his post-match interview.

Kazuki Hirata gave Yuni a Low Blow to set him up for the Miracle Cradle finish. Hirata was thrilled to win a match over the kid. The crowd booed him so he tried to win them back over by dancing. Yuni stopped him with a Hurricanrana and told him they will continue to battle against each other.

5. Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Maki Ito defeated Miyu Yamashita, Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi when Tatsumi pinned Yamashita by Referee Stoppage with the Dragon Sleeper (13:58).

With a new fire and a new hairstyle, Rika Tatsumi shocked everyone by choking out Miyu Yamashita with the Dragon Sleeper in the main event. She told a stunned Yamashita after the match that she is ready to win the “White Belt”. Tatsumi then said everyone in Tokyo Joshi Pro will put all of their power into making the Korakuen Hall show on 3rd May a success so please come and cheer for everybody!

Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi’s tag team name is Muscle JK Strikers.

Saki-sama congratulated Azusa Christie for providing them with a rosy victory. Feeling blessed by the compliment, Christie told her they had to leave for a helicopter trip back to Paris posthaste. But by being in Osaka today, Saki-sama felt like she was already home.

Today was Priscilla Kelly’s last match on her first tour with Tokyo Joshi. Hyper Misao would like to team with her again in the future.

At one point during Match #2 Mizuki & Raku pretended to sleep on top of Nodoka-oneesan. They called the move the Goodnight Express.

Maki Ito saw Saki from the Actwres girl’Z in the audience at the beginning of the show. She invited Saki into the ring and gave her an Ito Respect Army shirt, making Saki the newest member of the group.

Yukio Sakaguchi was originally supposed to be on this show but will miss it due to a scheduling conflict. Saki Akai takes his place.

Mad Paulie is now in a red rage because of the springtime. Daisuke Sasaki’s anger over HARASHIMA getting the next DDT Extreme Title shot might also have something to do with it. Paulie can only be calmed down and controlled in this condition with porno magazines.

Yuni is jealous of Nicholas, the ten year old boy who won the Raw Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania last weekend. It didn’t help when Sanshiro Takagi joked about searching for Nicholas’s booking details for a tour.

I’m going on holiday for a week so there won’t be anymore updates until 13th April at the earliest. That means I’ll be late posting results for the next six shows.

The match ended in a 10 minute draw.

There is no stipulation picked yet for the DDT Extreme Title match.

Cherry is going freelance after this show. She has also taken up fortune telling as a hobby so maybe she will show off some of that before she leaves the company.
