MUSCLE “HIRAGANA MUSCLE 5 TOKYO PERFORMANCE ~NO MORE SPECIAL MOVES ANYMORE~ ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCE NIGHT TIME”, 10/09/2021
Kitazawa Town Hall
The Hiragana Muscle show that was held in Korakuen Hall last week is having two repeat performances at Kitazawa Town Hall tomorrow. The shows should be a largely identical story to the first one. Any differences will come from audience participation and the fan voting sections.

7. DDT Extreme Title – All Men Are Equal! Kazuki Hirata Death Match: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata
Normally it is the DDT Extreme Champion who chooses the match stipulation for title defences. However Shinya Aoki allowed Kazuki Hirata to pick the match gimmick this time. They agreed to an “All Men Are Equal!” match. Hirata explained that Aoki’s fighting power is 530,000 while his own power is just 20 (he promises to level up to 25 in time for the match). To make it a fair fight Aoki has to fight at Hirata’s level and only use moves that Hirata would do. For example, Aoki is not allowed to use a Cobra Clutch because Hirata never used that move himself. The match will be stopped if Aoki doesn’t fight like Hirata. Two referees, Hisaya Imabayashi and another person will be at ringside to judge what Aoki can and cannot do. This also means Aoki must learn to dance like Hirata because that is inevitable.
Shunma Katsumata is getting annoyed by the behavior of Pheromones. His button was pushed even more when he signed the contract for the match and noticed a funny smell coming from the pen. He found out the pen was in Yuki Iino’s mouth and covered in his drool. Konosuke Takeshita isn’t bothered by the mind games because as the champion of DDT he is prepared for everything his opponents will throw at him. Katsumata doesn’t have that patience and tried to attack Pheromones. Danshoku Dieno stopped him in his tracks with the Lip Lock.
Yuna Manase is as fired up as she’s ever been to promote her match against Saki Akai. It makes her angry that Akai hasn’t been putting in the same amount of effort and will make it all the sweeter if she beats her. Akai is surprised to see Manase act like this. She always assumed she was the older sister type. Instead Akai thinks she is trying to hide how smaller and weaker she actually is.

5. DAMNATION Dissolution Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Shuji Ishikawa, Yuji Hino, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes
Seven members of DAMNATION gather together for the unit’s final match. Shuji Ishikawa unfortunately will not get his wish to sing karaoke with DAMNATION at the Tokyo Dome. However Hiroshi Yamato is missing from the lineup too but I don’t know what his schedule is.
DDT wants to put more effort into the early matches of their shows to make up for the shorter run times enforced by the pandemic. Putting together the undercard under these conditions is a problem Sanshiro Takagi is trying to figure out. The restrictions prevent DDT from filling venues with fans so DDT have decided to stream the first three matches (the two pre-show matches and Match #1) live on their Youtube channel for those who cannot attend shows.
Normally the early matches are for the young wrestlers but Takagi wants to get creative. So he’s putting Yumiko Hotta and Shinya Aoki on opposite teams. Both of them fought in RIZIN and Takagi wants to see how they would fare against each other for that reason. This is also surprising because Hotta was publicly upset over Natsumi Maki leaving Actwres girl’Z for Tokyo Joshi Pro at the end of 2018. If she held any grudge with DDT over that then it looks like it is all water under the bridge now.
