Higuchi Tears His PCL, Tokyo Joshi KFC Double Header, Ultimate Party Gets Double Title Match!

September 4, 2019

7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Puma King Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura

A few injuries during the week alters tomorrow’s card. The light one is Sanshiro Takagi. He injured his right eye and is missing this show. He will be getting it further examined next week but hopes to be clear for Masahiro Takanashi’s show on the 15th. Gorgeous Matsuno took it upon himself to replace Takagi in Match #2.

The bad injury happened to Kazusada Higuchi during yesterday’s “UNIVERSE.1” show. He tore his right PCL and has no timetable for a return. He does not need surgery and will be aiming to recover as soon as possible. Ryota Nakatsu takes Higuchi’s place in Match #3.

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2019 ~THE PROMISED NATURE LAND~”, 08/09/2019
Yamanashi Natureland Om

1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Antonio Honda Vs Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno Vs Shuichiro Katsumura, Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa

Sadly this means Higuchi will be missing the campsite match as well. Yukio Sakaguchi replaces him here. Also SAGAT is sick with the flu so he is being substituted with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

BASARA “BASARA 105 ~THE 2nd FOX PRINCE~”, 14/09/2019
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

Takato Nakano approached Sento Minzoku asking for a UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. He gathered together Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano to be his partners.

Hopefully SAGAT will be well again in time for his Last Man Standing match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “KFC 2 DAYS ’19 ~TEMPLE OF THE SUN~”, 15/09/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Nodoka Tenma Vs Himawari Unagi Vs Pom Harajuku
2. Yuki Aino & YUMI Vs Raku & Mahiro Kiryu
3. Rika Tatsumi Vs Suzume
4. Miyu Yamashita Vs Mirai Maiumi
5. Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa
6. Natsumi Maki, Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Yuna Manase, Maki Itoh & Mina Shirakawa
7. Sakisama Vs Yuki Kamifuku
8. Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) Vs Misao

With the new 2nd Gen belt over her shoulder, Shoko Nakajima is now even more motivated to defend the Princess Title. Her next challenger is the wrestler who has by far progressed the most among the roster this year, Misao. Ever since Misao shed her superhero persona and joined NEO Biishiki-gun she has gone from strength to strength.

I wonder if Sakisama holds a grudge with Yuki Kamifuku over her attempt to join NEO Biishiki-gun last year? Kamifuku joined the unit as an apprentice last May then quit after two weeks when she figured out it was a bad fit for her.

Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa is a match to watch out for. The two members of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have developed so much in the ring this year and part of the reason why is they branched out to other tag teams outside of their unit (Momoiro Sparkling for Watanabe and Pandemic Boo-Boo for Noa). Gotta be honest here, I think Raku is in danger of never catching up to them.

DDT “DRAMATIC SAINT INN☆ONISAN 2019”, 16/09/2019
Okayama Saint Inn Kurashiki

1. OPG Offer Match: Gota Ihashi, Great Mutiger & Yunosuke Vs Takuya Yamauchi, Tomoya Uehara & Scoville
2. Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Hiroshi Yamato
3. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dieno & Yukio Sakaguchi

6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Akito
7. Kurashiki Specialty Beauty Area Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura

HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo continue their feud. The danger here is they could do so much damage to each other that there won’t be much left for Jiro Kuroshio to deal with at the end of the month.

No word yet on who will replace Higuchi in the Marunage match.

Gota Ihashi gets his Oretachi Pro Wrestling buddies into the opener.

6. Shoko Nakajima & Mizuki Vs Dalys & Nodoka Tenma
7. International Princess Title: Natsumi Maki (c) Vs Yuna Manase

Natsumi Maki and Yuna Manase kind of have a sisterly relationship going back to their early years in Actwres girl’Z (am I allowed to mention that place?). Manase pinned Maki in Maki’s first match since becoming the International Princess Champion so obviously Manase gets the first shot.

CMLL luchadora Dalys makes her Tokyo Joshi debut. The 10 year veteran from Panama is being thrown right into the top card mix.

7. Omuta Specialty! The Moon Came Out The Moon Came Out! Barisugo Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuto Aijima Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Yukio Sakaguchi

I guess Higuchi is missing the heavyweight 3 Way too.

Yuki Iino is done filming his rugby TV show. He comes back to go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Akito.

Asuka, Hiroshi Yamato and Cody Hall will be on the show.

Other: Kenny Omega, Riho, Jiro Kuroshio, Chris Brookes, Asuka, Hiroshi Yamato, Yasu Urano, Minoru Fujita, Miss Mongolia

To really make this an Ultimate Party, Konosuke Takeshita wants to defend the KO-D Openweight Title against the DDT Extreme Champion in a double title match! Right now the Extreme Champ in Jiro Kuroshio. All he has to do is get past HARASHIMA and Endo in the 3 Way Match. Easier said than done.

8. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

The Recycling Death Match will involve weapons and items used in previous DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling matches that were just left lying around in storage afterwards. An example was used by Sanshiro Takagi when he kept a chair he used at the TAKAYAMANIA show from earlier this week. Ohka’s example is the jacket and ten gallon hat he wore during his absence from Ganpro shows last year.

Cody Hall is the mystery wrestler in the opener. He met Antonio Honda and got along with him because the Gongitsune hand gesture resembles the Wolfpac gesture that Cody’s dad Scott Hall is known for.

The campsite match this year also serves as a preview for “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!”. Every team represents a different brand. DDT has HARASHIMA, Honda & Kazusada Higuchi on one team and Takeshita, MAO & Ueno on another. BASARA is sending Isami Kodaka, FUMA & SAGAT rather than wrestlers from just one unit. Last but not least Tokyo Joshi Pro has the newly formed Cat’s Pye squad taking part.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Union MAX Title: Ryuichi Sekine (c) Vs SAGAT

SAGAT pinned and eliminated Ryuichi Sekine at this week’s Shinkiba show. That is enough of a claim for him to get the next Union MAX Title shot. SAGAT has challenged for the title once before, losing to the previous champion Ryota Nakatsu last November.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP 2019”, 29/09/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo

The grudge between HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo has gotten both of them a title match. They wanted the next shot at the DDT Extreme Title but got in each other’s way. Jiro Kuroshio doesn’t want to wait for a single challenger to be determined so he decided to face both of them at the same time.

BOYZ “(BRAND NEW) BOYZ 1 -DDT SPECIAL EDITION-”, 20/10/2019
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty School 2nd School Hall

1. Plump BOYZ: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Kouki Iwasaki
2. MAO UK Expedition BOYZ Send Off Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs MAO
3. Yukihero Pro Wrestling Collaboration Match: Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazuki Hirata & Hiroshi Yamato

The BOYZ brand is getting a fresh start under Akito’s management. Wrestlers booked on the first show will also be appearing at the SHIBUYA FASHION AWARD-BE Vint-Age 2019 festival the same day to promote a fashion brand called Yukihero Pro Wrestling. The main event will feature the wrestlers involved wearing costumes from that clothing line.

Akito doesn’t remember ever seeing MAO wrestle Takeshita in a singles match so he decided to book it before MAO’s excursion. Kouki Iwasaki is being booked on BOYZ because Akito wants to see him interact with DDT wrestlers more often. Higuchi and Yuki Iino are also being booked despite their alliance to the YaroZ brand. Akito believes there are women at these shows who find those kind of men attractive too. Akito plans to present them in a way that makes them more suitable for the BOYZ brand. DAMNATION wrestlers are disallowed except for Nobuhiro Shimatani because he works under Akito at the Drop Kick Bar.

81 wrestlers in total have been booked for the show and each promotion’s main championship will be defended in their own matches.

Kenny Omega returns to wrestle in DDT after a five year absence. A lot has changed since then but for now the people he wanted in his match are his biggest rival (Honda), his first tag partner (Riho, not “him”) and the wrestler who possibly might have caught his attention the most (Miyu Yamashita). Will there be more coming out of this? Wouldn’t be a party without surprises, would it?

1. Falls Count Anywhere Tag Team Match: Keisuke Ishii & Shota defeated Ken Ohka & Shuhei Washida when Ishii pinned Washida with the Arm Fold Carolina Reaper (20:18).

The second Ganbare☆Wrestling show of the day began in a Fresh Akiyama store is Air Park Town. The store manager brought out a title belt and said he would give the Air Town Park Championship to the winner of the match.

The match began with Keisuke Ishii and Shuhei Washida fighting their way into the shop while Shota and Ken Ohka fought next to the fans outside.

Inside the shop Ishii found a Jushin Liger mask and put it on. He tried to give Washida the Liger Bomb onto the ground but Washida escaped. The two then got into a Chop Battle on their way into a nearby bar.

The two teams got back together outside the shop with fruit and vegetables. Ishii placed a watermelon on the ground in between Ohka & Washida. He challenged Shota to break the watermelon with a stick while blindfolded. He tried but hit Ohka by accident. Washida then gave it a go and he too hit Ohka by accident.

The teams found carriages nearby and crashed them into each other. A chef then appeared with a plate of green curry. Ohka & Washida forced Ishii & Shota to eat the spicy curry.

Washida held Ishii in place for Ohka to attack him. Ohka charged in but Shota threw a banana peel in front of Ohka and he slipped on it. Ishii then Suplexed Washida onto some boxes.

Ishii grabbed a shop sign advertising the shop’s first anniversary and hit Washida over the head with it. He then put Washida in the Double Arm Neck Lock. Washida tried not to submit but when Shota forced a Carolina Reaper pepper into his mouth, Washida gave up.

The store manager presented Ishii with the Air Park Title for winning the match. Ishii said today was fun and now he got to spread the word of Ganpro in Tokorozawa as a champion. Ohka ended the night by shouting “Ganbare☆Tokorozawa!”

Suzume became a fan of Tokyo Joshi Pro when one of her friends invited her along to see a show. She moved to Tokyo to join the company and has been training for around 7 months. There’s no mention of any athletic background in her profile but she put illustrations down as her special skill. So at least we know she’ll become a wrestler who can draw (oh come on you knew I would make that joke).

The team of Miyu Yamashita & Miu Watanabe are now called Momoiro Sparkling.

DDT’s visit to the Tokyo Idol Festival began with the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) performing on the SMILE GARDEN Stage. They wanted to continue singing but Danshoku Dieno came out and told them it was time to start the Battle Royal. The competitors made their entrances with the Idol Army being led by Sanshiro Takagi. They were also armed with toy hammers.

The match began and the ten minute time limit counted down. Makoto Oishi grabbed the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and hit Yukio Sakaguchi over the head with it. Oishi pinned Sakaguchi and became the new champion.

He fled from the stage and made his way over to the seating area. The idols caught up with him and Rise Shiokawa from Transfer Girls* hit him with her hammer. She applied a Reverse Palo Special while Dieno performed the Danshoku Nightmare 3D into Oishi’s face. Oishi gave up and Shiokawa was the new champion.

Dieno quickly put Shiokawa in an Iron Claw and won the belt when she submitted.

Sakaguchi reappeared and gave Dieno a Penalty Kick. Sakaguchi was chased away but Dieno was left sitting on the ground. Aika Sawaguchi from dela came over and hit a Low Kick to Dieno’s back. That was enough to get the pin and win her the title.

Sawaguchi’s reign didn’t last long. Maki Itoh put her in a Sleeper Hold to become the new champion.

The Up Up Girls caught up with Itoh and the Idol Army followed. Takagi instructed Natsume Misaki from chuLa to give Itoh a Running Elbow smash. That did the trick and the belt moved over to Misaki.

Again an idol title reign only lasted a few seconds. Dieno came back and used another Iron Claw to regain the championship.

Dieno quickly lost the belt when Oishi tricked him into taking a selfie together. Oishi used his chance to pin Dieno with a School Boy.

Despite the betrayal Dieno and Oishi were still on good terms. They brought out a ladder and Dieno agreed to climb it and go into the Hell Gate position. Sakaguchi stopped Oishi from pushing Shiokawa into the Hell Gate. However the Idol Army knocked down Sakaguchi and joined together with the Up Up Girls to do one large Good Night Express. Even Yukio Naya got to be involved in it!

Some of the idols pushed Sakaguchi face first into the Hell Gate, this time with the back of Dieno’s tights pulled down. Oishi tried to do the same to Itoh but she stopped herself by catching her fingers in Dieno’s ass! She stuck her fingers under Oishi’s nose to dizzy him. Takagi told Momomi Wagatsuma from Hakoiri♡Musume to hit Oishi with an Axe Bomber. She then made Oishi tap out to a Crab Hold one second before the time expired! Wagatsuma was declared the winner of the Battle Royal and the new Iron Man Champion!

Everyone got together after the match to pose for a group photo.

That wasn’t the end of it though. An interview backstage with Takagi and the Idol Army was interrupted when Itoh attacked Wagatsuma! She put her in a Sleeper Hold and made her give up to win the belt.

Itoh’s celebration was short lived because Sakaguchi then came in and choked her out with his own Sleeper Hold. The day ended as it began, with Yukio Sakaguchi as the Iron Man Champion.

One more thing, Takagi encouraged the Idol Army to become pro wrestlers. He asked them if they’ve seen any wrestling shows before. Sawaguchi said she likes Dragon Gate. Never mind then!

Tokyo Big Sight West 1.2 Hall
??? Fans

1. Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Kota Umeda defeated HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata and Kazusada Higuchi & MAO when Umeda pinned Hirata with the PK (27:12).

The stage was set for DDT to cause more mayhem at the HandMade In Japan Festival. Kazusada Higuchi & MAO brought out chairs and fighting already broke out while Kazuki Hirata danced his way over to the stage.

The match quickly moved to the Music & Play area of the festival. HARASHIMA dropped a kid on Kota Umeda. Elsewhere Sanshiro Takagi and MAO swung chairs at each other, some of them hitting pillars when they missed their target.

The six wrestlers got back together to trade submission holds. There was a point where Umeda, Higuchi and MAO all put HARASHIMA, Takagi and Hirata in Octopus Holds all at the same time. Higuchi and Takagi later lifted Hirata and MAO into Argentine Backbreakers and carried them over to the live event area in the central lobby.

It was here where HARASHIMA did his usual trick of attacking his opponents with traffic cones over his arms. MAO did a Moonsault off of a vending machine and then everyone went back to the Music & Play area. Higuchi found a table to throw at the others but HARASHIMA squashed him and MAO beneath it with a Somato.

Takagi entered the scene on the Dramatic Dream Cycle with Keigo Nakamura positioned behind him acting like a yankee. He hit everyone with a baseball bat when Takagi cycled past them until Hirata made the bike crash.

MAO stole the Dramatic Dream and crashed it with Higuchi into a castle of chairs by the stage. Hirata picked up one of the chairs but Umeda came along and kicked it into his face. Umeda then hit the Penalty Kick and pinned Hirata for the three count.

Takagi asked the event organiser when next year’s festival will take place. He was told that the date is currently under consideration because of the 2020 Olympics. Takagi said DDT is going through the same problem but what they do have planned is the Saitama Super Arena show on 7th June!
