All aboard! DDT teamed up with Choshi Electric Rail for their latest Street Wrestling experiment. Can you do a pro wrestling free for all inside a moving train? Sure you can! The train journey began in Nakano Town Station and do a full circle around the railway line. The match itself was a Falls Count Anywhere Battle Royal with new wrestlers entering the train at a different station. Pinfalls, submissions and being ejected from the train and left behind at a station were the intended ways to eliminate the opponents. Sanshiro Takagi, Rekka and HARASHIMA were the first entrants to start the match. The three did what they could while they adjusted to the cramped surroundings.

Nobuhiro Shimatani and Yasu Urano entered at Choshi Station. They were already fighting each other at the platform when the train arrived. Urano threw Shimatani against one of the railings and directed the others to do a Train Attack. Keisuke Ishii entered at Nishiinkajima Station and went through an athletic back and forth with Urano. When he switched focus to Takagi, Urano took the opportunity to low blow Shimatani.

The crowd gasped when the train arrived at Kimigahama Station because Mad Paulie was there waiting for them. He clubbed Ishii with a forearm until Urano leapt on his back and applied a Sleeper Hold. Shimatani hit a Standing Shooting Star on Ishii and pinned him while everyone else piled on top. It was ruled that Shimatani gets credited for eliminating Ishii so that means he won Ishii’s Right To Challenge Contract! As this was going on Paulie countered Urano’s Sleeper Hold into an Argentine Backbreaker. He walked up and down the train with Urano in the move until Urano gave up.

At Inabaru Station, Guanchulo was chased onto the train by Danshoku Dino and Royce Isaacs. Rekka tried to stop Dino because it is illegal to grope people on trains. Dino gave him a Lip Lock and the Danshoku Nightmare to eliminated him. NωA were next to enter at Ogawa Station. They sang and dance on the platform while Takagi and HARASHIMA fought over next to them. An old lady on the platform waved everyone off as the train departed. Dino and Isaacs double teamed HARASHIMA and tried to convince Paulie to join in but he attacked them instead. When the train stopped at an empty Kimigahama Station, Dino pushed Paulie out and the train left without him.

Back in the train there was a Headcsissor link formed from one end of the train to the other. Takagi turned everyone over with a Boston Crab link with Isaacs suffering the most at the other end. Isaacs reached over and grabbed a railing which in this situation counted as a Rope Break. Isaacs was then accidentaly given a Lip Lock when Shimatani ducked Dino’s affections. Shimatani then gave Isaacs a School Boy to eliminate him and win his second Right To Challenge Contract!

Saki Akai and Lady Beard got in the train at Kaiokajima Station and they put Shunma Katsumata and MAO in separate Cobra Twists. HARASHIMA grabbed Akai and put her in the Romero Special. Dino used Katsumata and MAO as stepping stones so he could go in position for a human pyramid Hell Gate. Makoto Oishi used it to great effect by pushing Takagi face first into Dino’s backside followed by a successful pinfall. Oishi and Dino then joined forces to form a Revolving Hell Gate on Akai. Katsumata pinned her for the elimination.

The final entrant appeared at Kurosui Station. It was Kazusada Higuchi wearing his sumo mawashi. Lady Beard squared up to him for a Sumo match but Higuchi squeezed him in a Bearhug until he tapped out. All three NωA members combined tried to push Higuchi back but Higuchi shoved them out of the train at Choshi Station for a triple elimination. HARASHIMA looked like he was about to join in the sumo fun but he threw kicks at Higuchi instead. Higuchi rushed in and was knocked down by a High Kick. HARASHIMA then rolled over with a Jackknife to pin Higuchi. HARASHIMA shouted that he won the duel because “This is pro wrestling.”

On the other side of the train Guanchulo pinned Shimatani with a Backslide Pin, winning one of the RTC Contracts. Shimatani still holds the other one so he wasn’t too upset over it. With HARASHIMA and Guanchulo as the final two wrestlers in the match, the train wasn’t far away from its final destination. HARASHIMA hit Guanchulo with a Buzzsaw Kick and followed with the Somato. HARASHIMA won the Train Pro Wrestling Match and gets an RTC Contract as his prize! The train arrived back at Nakano Town Station and HARASHIMA thanked the 40 fans for coming to support them.

CHOSHI ELECTRIC RAIL X DDT “TRAIN PRO WRESTLING”, 16/04/2017
Nakano Town Station

Falls Count Anywhere Time Difference Battle Royal: HARASHIMA Vs Sanshiro Takagi Vs Rekka Vs X Vs X Vs X Vs X Vs X Vs X Vs X

A press conference was held on the track of Nakano Town Station today to announced the latest DDT Falls Count Anywhere Street Wrestling match. DDT in cooperation with Choshi Electric Rail will be hosting Train Pro Wrestling. A wrestling match will take place inside a small train travelling from Nakanomachi to Ogawa. But it’s not just any match, it will be a Falls Count Anywhere Battle Royal featuring around 10 wrestlers. Two wrestlers will begin the match inside the train when it begins its journey then another wrestler will enter at every stop.

The train being used is an old train that has been around for 50 years. It has recently been used for other entertainment experiments like haunted train trips. Due to how old the train is, the competing wrestlers have been warned that they will be disqualified if they break anything. A 5 count will be used to warn wrestlers if they are close to causing damage to the train. There are 40 seats on the train and tickets will be sold to fans wanting to attend the match for 5,000 yen.

Sanshiro Takagi, HARASHIMA and Rekka are the first three names announced to take part. This was an idea Takagi had wanted to do for a long time and thanks to Choshi Electric Rail it is finally a reality. He hopes to provide an intense match that is still safe for both the passengers and the train itself. He thinks it will be impossible for a wrestler to fall on the track so hopefully they won’t have to worry about that. He’s unsure if the train can handle Brainbusters though. Body Slams should be okay. HARASHIMA has wrestled on a train before so he has the experience advantage. For example, HARASHIMA knows how easy it is to lose balance while wrestling because the train shakes so often. Rekka is involved to promote a link between Choshi City and Taiwan that is currently being developed. The Choshi Rail president Katsuki Takemoto is happy to work with DDT although he doesn’t watch much wrestling because he dislikes seeing blood. He also hopes the idea will improve tourism in the area with fans coming from Tokyo to visit.

-. MAO (4)
4. Royce Isaacs (2)
-. Rekka (2)
6. Yuki Ueno (0)

2. Guanchulo (4)

4. Mizuki Watase (2)
-. Daiki Shimomura (2)
6. Nobuhiro Shimatani (0)

The first two upsets in the DNA Grand Prix happened on Day 3 of the tournament. Guanchulo survived Mike Bailey’s kick heavy offence including a running Penalty Kick along one of the bar counters outside of the ring. Late in the match Guanchulo blocked the Shooting Star Press with his knees. That stunned Bailey long enough to be pinned and suffer his first loss in his block. Bailey kicked a chair away in frustration as he walked back to the locker room. He blamed the referee for giving a slow count outside the ring, allowing Guanchulo the chance to come back before the 20 count. Guanchulo said his body is still in tatters after his match with Ryota Nakatsu on Day 1. He also said he fought for the name that is written on his wrist tape. That name is Shunma Katsumata.

Kazusada Higuchi currently looks unstoppable in A Block. His third win in a row came over MAO who was also undefeated until today. Higuchi jumped MAO during his entrance and tried to beat him with a countout but MAO entered the ring in time. Higuchi countered MAO’s Screw Kick with a Lariat and then bent him backwards in half with the Canadian Backbreaker to win. MAO thought Higuchi’s pre-match attack was strange. Higuchi meanwhile is already thinking of the prize trip to New York. Maybe he’ll go visit Madison Square Garden

Kouki Iwasaki was caught carrying a foreign object in his tights before his match with Royce Isaacs began. But that was part of his plan because when Yukinori Matsui took the object and turned to remove it from the ring Iwasaki charged an unsuspecting Isaacs. Iwasaki soon locked in the Triangle Choke. Isaacs used his strength to Power Bomb a few times but Iwasaki refused to let go of the hold until Isaacs tapped out. Iwasaki said DNA is his ring and he’s not going to lose to a guy who came from somewhere else.

The other upset was Daiki Shimomura beating Mizuki Watase. He countered Watase’s Back Drop into a Kasadora roll up to score his first win in B Block. Shimomura felt he barely won the match but a win is a win.

Ryota Nakatsu made quick work of Nobuhiro Shimatani to increase his lead in B Block. It’s becoming apparent that there is bad blood forming between Nakatsu and the DNA wrestlers. Shimatani threw his DNA shirt at Nakatsu when the match begun but Nakatsu survived the opening flurry and applied an Ankle Lock. Nakatsu continued to target Shimatani’s leg and then put him in his version of the Camel Clutch to win just shy of three minutes.

The show began with Rekka entering the ring in a new red mask. He took it off for his match with Yuki Ueno. Rekka attacked Ueno with Chops until a high Dropkick fended him off. Rekka hit a Dropkick of his own to block Ueno’s Missile Dropkick. He lifted Ueno up for a Back Drop then dropped him down for a sit out Facebuster for the three count. That was Rekka’s first win in A Block but he’s still not happy with his weak performance so far.

Suguru Miyatake and Dai Suzuki had a warm up session in the ring again before they show. During the session they accidentally confessed to gambling 60,000 yen on horse racing the day before.

6. Kazusada Higuchi defeated Mao Inoue with the Goten (11:59).

A daunting challenge lay ahead for Mao Inoue. A few weeks back in the ring and he is already going head to head with the top guy in DNA. He hit big moves to take the big man down including the Alien Plancha and a 450 Splash. But Kazusada Higuchi spent the match targeting Inoue’s abdomen making Inoue’s high impact moves damage himself more than usual. Higuchi blocked Inoue’s Screw Kick and put him away with a Lariat followed by the Goten. Higuchi congratulated Inoue on his return and he was looking forward to teaming with him in Saitama the next day.

Kota Umeda kicked Shunma Katsumata aside while he was checking on Mizuki Watase after Match #5. Umeda and Katsumata started brawling and had to be separated.

Two-thirds of the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions went at it in Match #4. Katsumata got the win over Kouki Iwasaki but there were no hard feelings over the result. Katsumata told Iwasaki he can depend on him and along with Higuchi they can rampage over DDT and liven up DNA together.

Taiwanese wrestler Rekka introduced himself as the newest member of DNA at the beginning of the show. His DNA debut ended in victory over Guanchulo. When asked backstage who he would like to face he said Higuchi. Rekka wants to fight the most powerful wrestlers he can.

7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) defeated Ken Ohka with the Somato (16:11).
*V1 for HARASHIMA. Ken Ohka cashes in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

Ken Ohka made several appearances throughout the show before the main event. Each time he demanded HARASHIMA to come out so they could begin their KO-D Openweight Title match. But whenever HARASHIMA appeared Ohka backtracked and instead claimed he was out to get advice from the other wrestlers in the ring. The match finally happened in the main event as originally scheduled. Ohka hit the Spear Of Flame but only got a two count. He surprised HARASHIMA with a Dragon Suplex but another Spear was avoided and HARASHIMA hit the Somato to win. The champion didn’t expect Ohka to be so driven to win and was impressed by how strong he has gotten. Ohka cried and thanked HARASHIMA before leaving.

Kazusada Higuchi was invited to the ring to set up HARASHIMA’s next title match on 24th April. Higuchi said he’s been disciplining himself ever since HARASHIMA handed him his first loss in Sapporo last year. He said he has youth on his side and that is what will make him win.

Love is over! Daisuke Sasaki had to put his feelings for Candice LeRae aside as the two duked over the KO-D Tag Team Titles along with Shuji Ishikawa and Joey Ryan. At one point the canvas was covered in candy and gave Sasaki the Ball Plex onto them. But it all fell apart for the challengers when Ishikawa gave LeRae the Fire Thunder onto the candy. Sasaki was in tears and told LeRae “I’m sorry, I love you!” before hitting a Super Kick. He then gave her the Vietnam Driver II for the victory. After the match Sasaki thought it was a good time to propose to LeRae one more time but he was turned down as usual. Sasaki wouldn’t take no for an answer and tried to leave the ring with LeRae over his shoulders. The New Gen Combo came to the rescue and then challenged the champions to a rematch. Sasaki instead demanded a match with LeRae and Johnny Gargano! Amon Tsurumi said there was no chance of it happening so the New Gen Combo are now the No. 1 Contenders.

Three more Right To Challenge contracts are now in play. A Battle Royal was held with a contract given to whoever could score an elimination by pinfall or submission. Saki Akai, Danshoku Dino and Antonio Honda won the remaining contracts. Kazuki Hirata once again failed to get one. At least he still has Aja Kong.

Team DNA just barely got out of Shinjuku FACE with the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles still in their grips. Shunma Katsumata caught Kota Umeda with a cradle but the two teams continued fighting after the bell rang. When they were kept apart Katsumata said their win wasn’t a fluke, it instead proved they can’t be stopped. Their goal as champions is to beat all of the senior wrestlers in DDT.

KENSO interfered in the opening match to again ask Sanshiro Takagi if he could join DDT permanently. Gota Ihashi got involved and got in a fight with KENSO. A missed Big Boot hitting Takagi allowed Ihashi to win the match via a roll up. KENSO ignored that and went back to asking about joining DDT. He will not give up because it his his dream to join DDT and wrestle for its amazing fans. Takagi said no. He instead brought out Taiwanese wrestler Rekka and asked him to join DDT and DNA. KENSO said he wanted to join more than Rekka but he was again told no. Takagi revealed he’s been in contact with New Taiwan Pro Wrestling and was impressed with Rekka’s hard work. DDT will hold its first show in Taiwan this November and DDT hopes Rekka will become a star in time for the show. KENSO yet again tried to get Takagi’s attention so a decision was made to have KENSO Vs Rekka in Saitama on 2nd April.

In a preview of their DDT Extreme Title match next week, Shigehiro Irie pinned Super Sasadango Machine. Sasadango didn’t even realise Irie was his next opponent until after the match. But he might have learned a few clues towards what Irie’s weaknesses are.
