DDT “DRAMATIC TENJINBASHI! 2018”, 03/11/2018
Osaka Oyodo Community Center
219 Fans

1. MAO & Rising HAYATO defeated Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase when MAO pinned Watase with the Michinoku Driver I (9:01).
2. Sanshiro Takagi & Yuni defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Yuni pinned Hirata after a Triple Dropkick (0:39).
2a. Likely Settled! Complete Settlement! Heisei’s Last Big Battle! Super Death Special Single Match: Kazuki Hirata defeated Yuni with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (4:38).
3. Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino defeated Keisuke Okuda & Makoto Oishi when Umeda pinned Oishi with the Umeda Driver (10:20).
4. God Of Trials! In Oyado: Antonio Honda defeated Yuki Ueno with a Leg Roll Clutch (14:26).
5. Daisuke Sasaki, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Jun Kasai when Sasaki pinned Takanashi with the Sasatonic (14:29).
6. Road To D-Oh GP 2019 Special Single Match: Akito defeated Soma Takao with a Roll Up (9:34).
7. Road To D-Oh GP 2019 Special 4 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA and Kazusada Higuchi when Endo pinned Takeshita with a Roll Up (17:22).

There were constant breakups throughout the 4 Way Main Event. Kazusada Higuchi had HARASHIMA pinned with the Doctor Bomb until Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo both broke it up with a Double Dropkick. Endo then broke up Takeshita’s pin on Higuchi with a Lionsault. Takeshita gave Endo a Reverse Implant but that pin was stopped by HARASHIMA’s Somato to Takeshita. Endo rolled up Takeshita from a Handspring to sneak away with the win. After the match DAMNATION gathered together in the ring for the closing speech. Endo said the road to the D-Oh Grand Prix starts here and his goal is to win the tournament so he can face Daisuke Sasaki for the KO-D Openweight Title at Sumo Hall next February.

Akito was able to counter the Gin And Tonic to roll Soma Takao into a Cradle. This was Akito’s first singles match in almost three months so he wanted to win this one before the D-Oh Grand Prix began.

Sasaki used Masahiro Takanashi’s own finisher against him. Except this one is called the Sasatonic instead of the Takatonic.

Antonio Honda says pro wrestling is a painful activity but it is the only way he can communicate with hearty young wrestlers like Yuki Ueno.

Keisuke Okuda and Yuki Iino had to be pulled apart after Match #3. They will be facing each other in a singles match tomorrow.

Sanshiro Takagi attacked Kazuki Hirata during his entrance. Toru Owashi didn’t care that his partner was being attacked so he joined in and did a Triple Dropkick with Takagi and Yuni. All three then piled on top of Hirata for the three count. Yuni then demanded a final match with Hirata to end their feud. He asked Hirata to be the referee so everybody vertically placed white paper tape on Owashi’s body to act as a referee shirt. Owashi counted slow for Hirata and fast for Yuni. He also ignored a Low Blow Yuni gave to Hirata. Yuni hit the 2nd Rope Sky Twister Press but it did no damage and Hirata rolled him over. Takagi and Owashi were too busy posing to the crowd to notice Yukinori Matsui counting the pin and declaring Hirata the winner.

Osaka Oyodo Community Center
221 Fans – No Vacancy

2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Fuminori Abe defeated Gouma Ryu and Hercules Senga when Abe pinned Ryu with the Buddha (8:26).

4. Best Stretchman V3 & Best Stretchman Amazon defeated Yasu Urano & Fuminori Abe when V3 pinned Abe after the Double Stretch Kick (9:52).
5. Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA, SAGAT & HUB when Kodaka pinned SAGAT with the Diving Double Knee Drop (15:48).
6. Union MAX Title: Naoki Tanizaki (c) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Implant (17:27).
*V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Naoki Tanizaki kept hitting Takumi Tsukamoto with the Casanova knee strikes until he was too hurt to counter the Implant. After the match Tanizaki bragged about being a double champion and dared anyone from BASARA to come out and challenge him for the Union MAX Title. All of the roster came out and faced him in the ring. Tanizaki told all of them there will be a BASARA x DOVE Pro event at Azalea Taisho Hall in Osaka on 15th July. He will be ready for one of them to challenge him then. He then singled out Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and told him he will prepare a great opportunity for him. When he left, Kodaka rallied all the BASARA wrestlers together for a closing speech to the fans.

Kodaka wore his Son Goku costume with the tail included. That led to him and HUB grabbing and pulling each other by their tails while they fought each other.


Takao Joins DAMNATION, Audience 2018 Matches, The Rest Happening In May

May 12, 2018

7. Yonago Specialty Irakuru! Special! Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Keisuke Ishii & Makoto Oishi

The big news happening in DDT this week is Soma Takao breaking up the remains of Smile Squash so he can join with DAMNATION. This was a plan that had been brewing in the background for a long time and Takao isn’t just joining the unit to be another one of Dasuke Sasaki’s pets. Maybe by teaming with Tetsuya Endo, Takao can make Endo focus more. Endo seems to be more interested in showing off his pet beetle than wrestling his best lately.

Kouki Iwasaki was supposed to be wrestling this weekend but had to pull out due to acute gastroenteritis. In other words he has diarrhoea.

HARASHIMA is using the same logic for his DDT Extreme Title defence against KUDO as Yuko Miyamoto did for him. HARASHIMA wants to be certain he can beat KUDO in a fair fight with no extra rules needed. This comes from KUDO beating HARASHIMA in their previous singles match last September.

DDT “AUDIENCE 2018”, 20/05/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Rekka Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga
1. 4 Way Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Jason Kincaid & Mizuki Watase Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Yuki Ueno

5. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Shunma Katsumata
6. Special Single Match: HARASHIMA Vs Soma Takao
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii

HARASHIMA gets his shot at revenge on Takao. But with Smile Squash pretty much done for, the numbers game is way against him now.

Kazusada Higuchi already defeated one half of the tag team No. 1 Contenders. Now he’s facing the other. Higuchi and Kota Umeda had a lot of battles against each other in the early years of DNA. It’s time to reginite that feud!

Makoto Oishi thinks the time for change has come. For too long DDT was built around men like Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine. Oishi has found the next generation of wrestlers to take their place: Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura, Yuki Iino and lastly of course himself. The two sides will battle for the future of DDT! At least that’s what Oishi wants to think.

We have another Lucha Libre superstar joining the ranks. Rihotimo Dragon makes her debut.

The comeback rally by DNA has put Naomi Kingdom on the ropes. Yuki Ueno is winning more often and has become confident enough to challenge Naomi Yoshimura to a match.

Yuki Iino is making up for lost time by picking Umeda for his first match back.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka have put aside their differences and are now strong allies again. Shiryu is confident that Rekka has what it takes to take part in New Beijing Pro Wrestling. China’s oldest wrestling promotion doesn’t want to be overshadowed by that fancy new stuff.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #8”, 12/06/2018

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “I HAVE NEVER SEEN 2018”, 19/05/2018
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Attitude Of The Imanari Revolution: Yumehito Imanari Vs Shuichiro Katsumura
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shota

On 1st May Shota signed a full time contract with Ganbare☆Wrestling. To mark the occasion he challenged Keisuke Ishii for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Shota was working with Guts World then went on an excursion to America after the company closed in April. Ohka had always wanted Shota to join Ganpro proper and approached him to make it happen when Shota no longer had a home promotion.

Yumehito Imanari has started the Imanari Revolution so he can be recognised as a main eventer. His campaign began successfully when he defeated Takeshi Okada in the main event of last month’s show. Now he faces Shuichiro Katsumura, the leader of Katsumura-gun and also the person who previously helped train him to fight Ganpro’s enemies. Imanari hopes that this match will be the main event.

January 9, 2017

hybrid-blaster

DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA IN OYODO ~DRAMATIC DREAM TENROKU~”, 09/01/2017
Osaka Oyodo Community Center
322 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Kazusada Higuchi, Kouki Iwasaki & Candice LeRae defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when LeRae pinned Hirata with the Balls Plex (9:12).
2. Antonio Honda & Yuni defeated Masahiro Takanashi & Guanchulo when Honda pinned Guanchulo with the Diving Fist Drop (9:18).
3. Yasu Urano & Soma Takao defeated Keisuke Ishii & Rekka when Urano pinned Rekka with a Figure Four Jackknife (9:47).
4. 3 Way Match: KUDO defeated Tetsuya Endo and Shunma Katsumata when KUDO pinned Katsumata with the Diving Double Knee Drop (8:46).
5. 26cm Height Difference! New Year Special Single Match: Yoshihiro Takayama defeated Makoto Oishi with the Knee Lift (9:26).
6. Oyodo Specialty! I Came Here To Osaka Many Times To Know Its Dialect Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie by Referee Stoppage when HARASHIMA choked out Sasaki with a Modified Sleeper (16:25).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey (c) when Funaki pinned Bailey with the Hybrid Blaster (14:43).
*Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey fail in V2. Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi become the 59th KO-D Tag Team Champions.

Looks like Masakatsu Funaki will be sticking around for a while because he is now a KO-D Tag Team Champion! Funaki drilled Mike Bailey’s head into the canvas with the Hybrid Blaster to cause the title change. Yukio Sakaguchi’s victory speech was cut off when HARASHIMA & Akito entered the ring. Akito reminded Sakaguchi that he beat him by submission yesterday. He asked how humiliating must it have been? Sakaguchi tried to brush his comments off but Akito then said that there’s no way the pain he caused to Sakaguchi’s legs have already gone away. Sakaguchi said that liquor is his medicine. He then wanted to know if Akito was here to challenge him. Well there’s no need as Sakaguchi nominated him and HARASHIMA as the No. 1 Contenders anyway. When Smile Squash were sent away, Funaki told a story about meeting Sakaguchi’s father Seiji Sakaguchi at a New Japan training camp when he was around 16 years old. He did not think he would be winning championships with Seiji’s son 32 years later.

HARASHIMA got a measure of revenge on Daisuke Sasaki for yesterday’s sneak attack. After he hit Sasaki with the Somato, HARASHIMA then applied a Sleeper Hold and choked out Sasaki to win. When Sasaki was revived backstage he asked if Candice LeRae saw what happened. Apparently she did. Sasaki then swore he will kill HARASHIMA!

At the start of the show Makoto Oishi had to be encouraged by Amon Tsurumi to have his match with Yoshihiro Takayama. Oishi was intimidated by the massive size difference and the result was never in doubt. Oishi was fighting back the tears as he thanked Takayama for the match backstage afterwards. Takayama tried to cheer him up by saying he showed No Fear.

Yasu Urano will get his AJPW Jr. Title match against Keisuke Ishii on 29th January. He was in such a good mood over this and his win today that he was full of praise for Ishii in his post-match promo. Urano said he would not mind if he had to wait for the title shot but the All Japan office gave their blessing for it to happen on the 29th. Urano promises a fair fight but Ishii doesn’t believe him.

Antonio Honda doesn’t feel bad about his age when he teams with Yuni. Honda’s 39 years old and Yuni is only 8. That makes their average age 23. Honda is now thinking up a team name for themselves.

There was a little bit of tension between Kazuki Hirara and Candice LeRae. Candice complained about Hirata’s dance entrance. However she was happy to dance herself once she put on the Hirata GO! glasses. During the dance Kazusada Higuchi Headbutted Hirata in time with the music. Candice then pinned Hirata with the Balls Plex.

Danshoku Dino Vs Yoshihiro Takayama was booked for Osaka Edion Arena #2 on 4th February.
