The new Tokyo Princess Tag Team Champions get their first challengers. The Bakuretsu Sisters are a united force but mind games are already being played against them. Sakisama says Yuki Aino can’t do anything without her sister’s help while Misao keeps calling Nodoka Tenma a pig, something that past members of NEO Biishiki-gun have done back when Tenma was Nodoka-oneesan.

10. KO-D Tag Team Titles – Souken Holdings Presents: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Tako (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano
11. KO-D Openweight Title – BLACK OUT Presents: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Sanshiro Takagi is on the card and he has Super Sasadango Machine to thank for it. Maybe TAJIRI too. There was a tweet from TAJIRI sent over the weekend talking about how there are different tiers of wrestling as an art form. Sasadango was offended on Takagi’s behalf when TAJIRI labelled comedy wrestling as third rate, although Takagi does not think for a moment that he was the intended target of that opinion. Even if this is a misunderstanding, Sasadango wants a match with Takagi at DDT’s biggest show of the year to prove that Takagi is anything but a third rate wrestler. He is even taking himself out of the Battle Royal to put this match together. Takagi is grateful for the opportunity and asks that their match will be a Weapon Rumble!

That’s not all, Sasadango brought up that there are now many pro wrestlers who are active in their forties including himself, Takagi and TAJIRI. He wants to inspire the DDT fans from the same age group that they can still do their best. To do this there should be a new championship. There used to be a U-30 Title for wrestlers under thirty years olds to fight over, now there should be an O-40 Title for the wrestlers over forty! Takagi thinks the idea is interesting and agrees that the winner of their match will become the first champion. After all, Takagi wants his pro wrestling to change everyone’s life and he also still wants to be a champion. Sasadango also suggested that the loser should reply to TAJIRI’s tweet.

Shoko Nakajima and Mizuki are no strangers to each other. They have fought each other plenty of times in big tag matches but only have one previous singles match together. That happened around 18 months ago and Nakajima was the winner back then. Yuka Sakazaki and Miu Watanabe also had only one singles match between each other until now. That was back during Watanabe’s rookie year, which was only 8 months ago but you get what I’m saying.

The injury came from one of the ladder spots during his impromptu KO-D Openweight Title match with Sanshiro Takagi. He has been pulled out of the remaining bookings for the rest of June. But all he is missing is this weekend’s BOYZ show and the Korakuen Hall show at the end of the month. Mad Paulie takes Endo’s place at the BOYZ show.

Endo sent a message to the DDT office alerting them to his injury. The message also said Endo admired Takagi’s cash in on him so much that he wants Takagi to be his replacement for the Korakuen main event. Takagi’s failure to win the KO-D Title means he is currently locked out of “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” with no place for him available on the card. Now he finds himself in a Korakuen main event for the first time in ages with something to prove.

DDT “POOL WRESTLING 2019 IN SUMIDA SPORTS HEALTH CENTER” Results

June 19, 2019

DDT “POOL WRESTLING 2019 IN SUMIDA SPORTS HEALTH CENTER”, 19/06/2019
Tokyo Sumida Sports Health Center Pool
200 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way Tag Match: Chris Brookes & Mizuki Watase defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo, Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata, HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata and Michael Nakazawa & Gota Ihashi when Brookes pinned Nakazawa with the Praying Mantis Bomb (33:35).
-. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) defeated Sanshiro Takagi with the Shooting Star Press into the pool (13:47).
*V4 for Tetsuya Endo. Sanshiro Takagi cashes in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Before the match began Hisaya Imabayashi warned the crowd of fans not to run or push and they would also probably get wet. Every wrestler had their own preparations for the match. Chris Brookes was in his normal wrestling gear, Mizuki Watase was dressed as a pool guard, HARASHIMA wore goggles, Kazuki Hirata wore a swimming cap and Michael Nakazawa showed everyone Gota Ihashi’s newly bald head. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata admitted they both cannot swim so they brought along inflated floats. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo were the last to enter and they were armed with a deck broom and a bucket. Sasaki was also drinking.

When the bell rang Sasaki threw a bucket of water and Yukinori Matsui. HARASHIMA attacked others with the boogie board. Watase blew his whistle in Nakazawa’s ear. Takeshita threw Sasaki into the pool with a Back Body Drop. More wrestlers ended up in the pool while Endo used the broom to pull Sasaki out. Sasaki then threw another bucket of water at Matsui.

Endo wound up getting knocked into the pool along with Nobuhiro Shimatani. Over at one of the edges HARASHIMA propped up Nakazawa onto two ledges and jumped on him into the water with a Double Foot Drop.

Watase stopped fighting with Hirata and told him he came here to swim. Hirata agreed. Together they took off their clothes to reveal they were wearing swimming trunks underneath. They found MAO with trainee Keigo Nakamura nearby and challenged them to a swim race. Hirata won.

DAMNATION brought the broom back and used it as a weapon against the others. Brookes climbed a rail and hit a Senton onto Takeshita. The fighting then moved over to the waterslide.

Some of the wrestlers were knocked down the slide. HARASHIMA and others used it to do a Sliding Kick into Ihashi one after another. Brookes applied a Figure 4 Leg Lock on Katsumata but both of them fell down the slide with Katsumata reversing the submission on the way down. Nakazawa and Sasaki were the last to slide down.

Fifteen minutes into the match Katsumata gave Watase a Running Bulldog into the pool. A chain of Headscissors is formed along the wrestlers ending with Sasaki rolling all of them into the pool. Watase attacked Katsumata with the boogie board that was taken from MAO.

Brookes jumped off another rail this time to give Takeshita an RKO into the water. He and Watase asked some of the fans to help them get out but they instead pulled the fans into the water.

More wrestlers were Suplexed into the pool then when things got quiet “Tokyo GO!” suddenly played over the speakers. Hirata performed a one man synchronized swim to the song in the middle of the pool for all to enjoy.

Ihashi tried to attack Hirata after the dance but Hirata fought back. He got out of the pool and did a Moonsault back in onto Ihashi. He tried to pin him on the surface but Katsumata broke it up with a Diving Dropkick.

The next spot featured in the match was a bridge where Katsumata and Brookes fought. Katsumata was knocked off but he held on to the bridge and was left dangling backwards over the water. Brookes climbed over the rail and Double Stomped Katsumata into the pool!

Takeshita tried to get Nakazawa on the bridge but Sasaki of all people came to the rescue. Sasaki attempted the Pedigree but Takeshita fought out of it and dropped Sasaki crotch first onto the bridge rail. He then gave Sasaki a Brainbuster into the pool.

Endo was next to step up to the bridge but HARASHIMA met him there and knocked him into the water with two High Kicks. HARASHIMA then dove off the bridge to hit the Somato on Endo. He went for the pin but Nakazawa broke it up.

Ihashi wanted to one up that spot by doing a Moonsault but everyone swam out of the way.

All that was left on the bridge was Brookes and Nakazawa. Brookes avoided the Ultimate Venom Arm and he put Nakazawa in an Octopus Hold. He then hit the Praying Mantis Bomb to win the match for himself and Watase. Brookes used a megaphone to tell everyone he won the pool match today, next he wants to win the KO-D Openweight Title at Korakuen Hall!

The victory celebration was short lived when all of a sudden Sanshiro Takagi’s music played. Takagi came out and said he was going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet at the most immature time and that means right now!

Takagi rushed towards the pool and jumped in with a Dropkick to Endo. He ordered Hirata and Ihashi to hold Endo in place while Ihashi slipped down the waterslide for a rocket attack. Endo reversed his position with Hirata and Hirata took the blow. Takagi reappeared on the Dramatic Dream Cycle, Clotheslining Endo as he cycled past him. Takagi went for it again but Endo knocked him into the pool and threw the bike in there along with him when he found out the chain snapped off.

Endo put Takagi in a Crab Hold, pressing Takagi’s head beneath the water in the process. Takagi was able to fight it and escape the hold. He gave Endo a Stunner then set up a table with a ladder at poolside. Takagi jumped off the ladder to put Endo through the table! Takagi went for the pin but Endo kicked out at two!

Takagi climbed the ladder again to finish the match but Endo got up and climbed the other side. Endo grabbed Takagi and gave him a Brainbuster from the ladder into the pool! He went for the pin but Takagi also kicked out at two.

Both champion and challenger crawled up the bridge and charged each other. Takagi went for the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Endo escaped. Endo turned the tables and lifted Takagi up in the Torture Rack. He then threw him off the bridge into the pool! Endo then jumped off the bridge and hit the Shooting Star Press! Endo was able to pin Takagi in the water for a successful KO-D Title defence.

With the chaos over, Takagi praised Endo for the victory. Endo then went back to the bridge one last time to confront Takeshita. With no more Right To Challenge Gauntlets, these two are now confirmed to face each other in the KO-D Title match at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July. Endo said he’s been waiting for Takeshita. If Takeshita is at 500% power at Ota Ward then Endo will be at 1000%! Takeshita offered a fist bump but Endo gave him the middle finger instead.

7. Road To Wrestle Peter Pan! Special 3 Way Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes

After their last KO-D Tag Team Titles defence, Daisuke Sasaki said that he and Soma Takao would pick who their next challengers will be. They went quiet for a few days until Sasaki emerged with an Amidakuji/Ghost Leg puzzle that decided DAMNATION’s next three challengers. Unfortunately the process was heavily flawed because the three teams picked were all impossible to book for one reason or another. Hisaya Imabayashi disregarded Sasaki’s choices and nominated proper teams instead. On this show Sasaki’s choice of challengers was himself and Yoshiaki Yatsu. Imayashi pointed out that Sasaki is already the champion so Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are getting the shot. Oddly enough Imabayashi didn’t sound negative on the idea of Sasaki having to wrestle himself.

Danshoku Dieno is trying to become immune to all martial arts in order to defeat the MMA master Shinya Aoki. His plan to do this is pit himself in a gauntlet of matches against pro wrestlers with martial art and combat sport backgrounds. Now I know what some of you are thinking. Why is he fighting a swimmer? Because Aoki proved last year that he is just as dangerous in the water than he is in the ring. The inclusion of Kabaddi is Dieno thinking outside of the box too.

8. DDT Extreme Title: Akito (c) Vs Asuka
9. KO-D Tag Team Titles – Souken Holdings Presents: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Tako (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano
10. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Takagi ordered Imabayashi not to book him on the show unless he is in the main event. The only way that can happen is if he cashes in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet during or after that match.

Sasaki’s Amidakuji puzzle selected Joey Ryan & Candice LeRae as the KO-D Tag Title challengers for “WRESTLE PETER PAN”. That’s impossible because LeRae is signed to NXT and it is also too late to endorse her for a visa. Sasaki offered to sign her up for a tourist visa but shut down into depression when Imabayashi said she already registered her details with Johnny Gargano. HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano are the challengers instead, creating an unwanted Smile Squash reunion with Soma Takao.

If Ueno & Yoshimura win the KO-D Tag Titles on 30th June, then they will defend the belts against HARASHIMA & Urano. Sasaki & Takao will then be demoted down to teaming with Nobuhiro Shimatani in the opening match.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda Vs X
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The last Amidakuji team was supposed to be the newly married celebrity couple Ryota Yamasato & Yu Aoi. Instead we’re getting Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato. It is possible that this title match will be cancelled if Sasaki & Takao lose the championship before the show. What is most likely to happen is the new tag champs will defend the belts in their place but DDT has not ruled out getting rid of the match altogether.

One last thing, DAMNATION have a four year plan in place for his personal goals. In 2019 they want to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles, in 2020 they want to win gold at the Olympics, in 2021 Sasaki wants to visit the moon and in 2022 Sasaki wants to get married to a divorced Candice LeRae in May of that year.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda Vs X
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

It was announced today that Kota Umeda will be leaving DDT when his contract ends on 21st July. The reason is Umeda will be concentrating on working for his family’s business in his home of Kumamoto. The 24 year old will not be able to wrestle while carrying this responsibility. His family is important to him so he is choosing them over pro wrestling. Umeda originally asked to retire as a wrestler but Sanshiro Takagi convinced him to resign from DDT instead. Umeda is so young that he may find the opportunity to wrestle again somewhere down the line. For example DDT runs a show in Kumamoto once a year (this year’s show is coming up in August) so maybe that spot could always be available for him to wrestle in front of his home crowd. Umeda is grateful to Takagi for the advice he gave him and promises to do his best for the last two months of his contract.

Hideki Suzuki, Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio, Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey will be on the show.
