DDT’s tribute to Osaka wrestling was headlined by their two top wrestlers from the region taking on two legendary figures. When Konosuke Takeshita & Shigehiro Irie got a match against Magnitude Kishiwada and Buffalo they wanted them in their original Osaka Pro forms, “Big Boss” MA-G-MA & Black Buffalo. They got their wish and their opponents made it clear they weren’t going to play nice. MA-G-MA & Buffalo attacked the DDT team the moment the bell rang. MA-G-MA put Takeshita through a table outside the ring with a Diving Body Press. However the tables turned when MA-G-MA accidentally Clotheslined Buffalo. Irie flattened Buffalo with a Running Cannonball into the corner. MA-G-MA did what he could to save Buffalo but soon ran out of chances. Takeshita then hit the Cross-Arm German Suplex to seal the victory.

Before the Osaka team left, MA-G-MA appealed to Takeshita for a singles match some day down the line. Takeshita and Irie showed admiration for their opponents and said it is now their own era of pro wrestling. When Takeshita was finished, Naomi Yoshimura came down to the ring to grab his attention. He said Takeshita forgot about someone. Yoshimura then went back to the entrance and brought out Takeshita’s mother, Keiko Takeshita! Yoshimura said he was stealing Keiko so her son won’t be able to eat any meals when he comes home. Keiko didn’t seem to mind because she was busy waving to the audience as they were chanting her name. Takeshita was annoyed but he can still protect his KO-D Openweight Title so please continue to support him. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi closed out the show by singing “A Woman Born Is Osaka”.

Big men doing big moves was the theme of the other main event. Kazusada Higuchi stepped up to Shuji Ishikawa and wasn’t intimidated by the Triple Crown Champion. Back Drops, Lariats and even the Doctor Bomb could not win the match for Higuchi. Instead Ishikawa cut him off with a Knee Lift, a Sliding D, the Fire Thunder and then the Splash Mountain to finish it.

Dick Togo and Mad Paulie continued to fight each other at the end of the Wrestling Hunters Vs DAMNATION match. The rest of DAMNATION had to pull Paulie away from Togo. Save that energy for the Paulie Joshi, buddy.

Antonio Honda had the opportunity to join in with Kikutaro and Kuishinbo Kamen’s famous wrestling exchanges but was struck with anxiety. He was up all of last night thinking of “Gon, The Little Fox” as usual. This annoyed his opponents so they decided to fight Honda two on one with some nonsense along the way. Kikutaro tired himself out and Honda easily submitted him with a Crab Hold to win. Honda thanked both of his opponents for the match. Kikutaro said he would like to do it again whenever the cost of his flights from and to Nevada are cheap.

In a moment of true villainy, Super Sasadango Machine rummaged through Yuni’s carry case before their trios match. Inside he found the kid’s fidget spinner and he stole it! Sasadango taunted Yuni by playing with the spinner in the ring then challenged him to take it back with his strength. To make it worse, Sasadango then stuffed the spinner down the front of Danshoku Dino’s tights. Yuni got help from Makoto Oishi and Jun Kasai to beat Dino, Sasadango & Atsushi Maruyama. Oishi gave Sasadango a Stunner, Kasai then hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Yuni got the pin with the Sky Twister Press from the 2nd turnbuckle. After the match Kasai reached into Dino’s tights, pulled out the spinner and gave it back to Yuni.

There was a problem about the Battle Royal that needed to be solved. The original plan was for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Championship to be defended in the match but the current champion Maho Kurone was nowhere to be found. Yukinori Matsui told Amon Tsurumi that there needed to be a prize to motivate the contestants. Tsurumi thought about it and came up with an idea. He took off his afro and handed it over to Matsui. You see, the afro represents the power held by the DDT General Manager. Tsurumi announced that the winner will become the GM for one day. This will allow the winner to make any match or personal request that they desire. Saki Akai won the Battle Royal without eliminating anybody. She was tied up into a ball by Hirata Collection A.T. and left alone afterwards. Hirata and Joey Ryan were the last wrestlers left fighting and they eliminated each other so Akai was declared the winner. After Tsurumi freed her, he gave her the afro and asked her not to throw it away because she will have to wear it on the day she becomes the GM.

Shunma Katsumata & MAO recorded a message for the DDT fans while they were away competing in the NOAH Jr. Tag League. Unfortunately the audio was indecipherable because there was a strong wind while they were recording outdoors.

8. Twelve New Year’s Eve Dream: Konosuke Takeshita defeated ZERO with the Cross Arm German Suplex (23:29).

The main event was an important one for Konosuke Takeshita. He was taking on one of his Osaka Pro heroes, ZERO. The wrestler now known as HUB found out about Takeshita’s dream to fight him and returned to his old gimmick for the special occasion. All kind gestures aside he didn’t take it easy on the kid. ZERO attacked Takeshita with a chair and then threw him into the crowd while they fought outside the ring. Later on ZERO stomped on Takeshita while yelling “What’s wrong!” until Takeshita fought back with Elbow Strikes. Takeshita hit the Blue Thunder Bomb and the German Suplex but ZERO kicked out of them both. ZERO avoided the Touchdown and hit a Shining Wizard to the back of the head for a nearfall. Takeshita returned with a Lariat and the Deadlift German Suplex but ZERO kicked out again. Takeshita struck him with a Running Elbow but ZERO kicked out at one. That seemed to be the last of his energy spent because Takeshita hit another Lariat and then the Cross Arm German Suplex to win a hard fought battle. ZERO told Takeshita he was feeling a lot of emotions throughout that match but most of them were of happiness. ZERO covered his face with a shirt and unmasked. He gave Takeshita his mask as a gift and told him it was specially made just for today’s match. Takeshita said he became a pro wrestler so he could wrestle ZERO. His dream came true so it was now time for a new dream. His new dream is to win the KO-D Openweight Title, boost Japanese wrestling and become the best wrestler in the world!

Daisuke Sasaki’s modified version of the Crossface Lock that won him the KO-D Title now has a name. It is now called the Cross Facelock Doppelganger. He used it to submit Akito in the semi-main event.

Jinsei Shinzaki took Super Sasadango Machine’s mask and wore it for the ending stretch of the 6-Man Tag. After the match Shinzaki took off the mask and told everyone else to sit down while he lectured them about wrestling and life.

Kazuki Hirata got Hiroshi Fukuda, Kuishinbo Kamen, Kikutaro and even Yukinori Matsui to dance with him before they started wrestling each other. Fukuda and Kikutaro also took some time to sing during the match. When Hirata and Kamen won they celebrated with more dancing until Kamen collapsed. Atsushi Maruyama ran down to check on him and then nervously thanked everyone for coming to the show. Kamen got up and sang “I Do Not Want To Release You” by T-BOLAN.

Dick Togo does what he wants whenever he is the referee. He was accidentally knocked down by a Bionic Elbow from Antonio Honda. However he saw Yasu Urano cheat by choking Honda with his bandana. Togo stopped him by giving Urano the Pedigree! Honda then hit the Diving Fist Drop to win the match.

There was no winner in the match between Danshoku Dino Vs Magnitude Kishiwada. There was a loser though. Yukinori Matsui kept getting in the way of Lip Locks from both Dino and Kishiwada until he fainted. Daisuke Kiso took his place just to call off the match but he received a Lip Lock from Dino too.

A “Luxury Prize” was promised to the winning team in the Surprise Tag Rumble. There were two surprise entries in the match. One was Ken Ohka & Hideki Shiota. Ohka just spent his time in the match promoting Ganbare☆Wrestling’s show in Osaka on 27th July. The second surprise team was Kota Ibushi & Gota Ihashi! This was Ibushi’s first appearance in DDT since “JUDGEMENT 2016” back in March. Ibushi & Ihashi came out the winners and were given their prize by Kuishinbo Kamen. The luxury prize was 24 copies of Kamen’s autobiography. In a backstage interview Ibushi said the 29th May is for now his last scheduled date of Ibushi Wrestling Institute activities. He said he will probably do something this year that will cause an explosion in wrestling and told everyone to just wait a little bit longer.

Iron Man Title In Osaka Update

January 12, 2012

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title has changed hands a couple of more times over in Osaka Pro since last week. Apple Miyuki lost the belt to Kushinbo Kamen on 7th January despite just beating him in a singles match. Kamen used the 24/7 rule to his advantage and immediately cradled her for the pin. The next day Black Buffalo submitted Kamen to become champion during a 3 Way Match with Billyken Kid also involved. He then scored a rare title defence against Ebessan the day afterwards. However, his title reign ended today when Apple Miyuki’s ghastly alter ego Miyuki Matsuyama won the title. Miyuki is currently the 886th champion. DDT returns to Osaka in two days but so far there is no word in anyone making the trip over to the Minami Move On Arena to bring the title back to its home promotion.

It wouldn’t be a New Year’s Eve puroresu indie show without a giant clusterfuck in the main event. The Ken Ohka Vs Ryuichi Sekine team challenge turned out to be a massive 74 person tag team match to close out the show. Ohka’s team won out in the end.

The Danshoku Dino Produce was weird. The match itself was a Royal Rumble match. But before it begun, a Samurai TV! assistant director (who oddly enough looked a lot like Tsurumi Amon) invited DDT President Sanshiro Takagi, K-DOJO founder TAKA Michinoku and Big Japan executive Eiji Tosaka down to the ring. The director challenged them not to laugh during the match. If anyone of them did laugh, either Michael Nakazawa or Tomomitsu Matsunaga would run down to the ring and spank them with a paddle. The director then called in DDT’s Kazuki Hirata and BJW’s Kazuki Hashimoto to try and make them laugh. Hashimoto was only able to make Hirata laugh, which caused him to get spanked with a paddle. That made Hashimoto laugh, which caused him to get spanked. The director said a joke and made TAKA laugh, so he got paddled too. Highlights (for a lack of a better word) from the match include Yuji Okabayashi refereeing the match while wearing a referee shirt with a midriff, Karate Brahman performing a song, Mio Shirai introducing herself as a lesbian, Atsushi Ohashi entering the match tied up in bondage rope, Kaji Tomato dancing with more and more wrestlers as they entered the match, (including CZW’s Sabian), Kaji Pot-au-feu (Ivan Markov) eliminating himself with a Tornado DDT, Okabayashi being unable to count above the number 6 and Takagi, TAKA and Tosaka getting constantly paddled for laughing at the nonsense directed at them.
