February 9, 2020

DDT “SUNDAY KASUKABIAN! 2020”, 09/02/2020
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
199 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Kazusada Higuchi & Saki Akai defeated Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura when Higuchi submitted Nakamura with the Canadian Backbreaker (7:37).
2. 3 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Yukio Sakaguchi and Kazuki Hirata when Takao pinned Hirata with the Gin And Tonic (7:51).
3. Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi defeated Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura when Dieno pinned Yoshimura with a Reverse Jumping Press (14:14).
*Danshoku Dieno wins Naomi Yoshimura’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
4. Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Akito, Mizuki Watase & Yukio Naya when Paulie pinned Akito with the Reverse Splash (11:00).
*Mad Paulie wins Akito’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
5. Cody Hall defeated Yuki Ueno with the Razor’s Edge (9:30).
6. Charisma Vs Gongitsune!: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Antonio Honda with the Cross Facelock (12:22).
7. Harashimao Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when MAO pinned Iino with the Cannonball 450 (14:42).

HARASHIMA & MAO made a good team together in the main event. HARASHIMA took out Konosuke Takeshita with the Somato and MAO picked up the win by hitting the Cannonball 450 on Yuki Iino. After the match HARASHIMA gave MAO some advice for his KO-D Openweight Title match later this month. HARASHIMA told him Masato Tanaka is… incredibly strong! MAO thanked HARASHIMA for giving him this vital piece of information. With this knowledge, he can definitely beat Tanaka now!

HARASHIMA & MAO were then interrupted by Shinya Aoki. He brought out his Right To Challenge Gauntlet and told HARASHIMA he wants to cash it in for a DDT Extreme Title match. Hisaya Imabayashi stopped him to explain that the Gauntlets are only meant to be used for the KO-D Title and the Saitama Super Arena Sword. However Imabayashi is willing to grant Aoki an Extreme Title shot due to his existing track record in DDT. HARASHIMA accepted the challenge and the match will take place on 3rd March.

Aoki was earlier seen watching the Daisuke Sasaki Vs Antonio Honda match near ringside. Sasaki threw his shirt at Aoki after the match, daring him to use his Gauntlet to try and win the Sword. Aoki kept calm and let Sasaki be.

Cody Hall used Danshoku Dieno’s help to beat Yuki Ueno. When a ref bump happened, Dieno got into the ring and gave Ueno the Lip Lock. The Hole Brothers then did their Brainbuster/Spear combo. Ueno kicked out of the pin but then Hall used his father’s finisher the Razor’s Edge to put him away. Dieno had earlier won an RTC Gauntlet from Naomi Yoshimura so The Hole Brothers are going from strength to strength against Nautilus.

DAMNATION being such a well oiled machine is the reason why Mad Paulie now has an RTC Gauntlet. He was in danger of submitted to Akito’s Ankle Lock when Tetsuya Endo covered Akito’s eyes break the hold. The distraction allowed Nobuhiro Shimatani to give Akito the Fisherman Buster. Paulie then followed up with the Reverse Splash for the three count.

When the 3 Way Match spilled outside of the ring, Yukio Sakaguchi and Soma Takao noticed a bunch of Cody Hall portraits was already placed out on the merch tables. So they took a quick break to shill the portraits for fans to buy.

At the beginning of the show, Takeshita spoke about the upcoming DDT debut of Royce Chambers. Takeshita said Chambers is pretty green but his aerial skills are amazing. Takeshita would like to branch ALL OUT over to Australia and invite more Australian wrestlers to join his group. Chambers wills face Chris Brookes on 3rd March.

The 2020 King Of DDT begins on 10th June and the final takes place on 28th June.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020

5. Ganpro Vs TTT Full Battle: Ken Ohka Vs Guts Ishijima
6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Yumehito Imanari

For fuck sake Guts Ishijima, stick to one affiliation please! He formed TTT (Total Triumph Team) in December and the promotion held its first show on 25th January. That explains why the Real GUTS Army angle got a bit wonky for the last couple of shows with the enemy team constantly changing its name and intentions.

With THE HALFEE idea now put on the shelf, Shuichiro Tominaga & Moeka Haruhi are going back to their regular ring names. However Shuhei Washida has taken to the name Washi Sakurai and wants to stick with it.

When Shota went on tour in Australia last year he wrestled for a promotion called Pro Wrestling Power in Cairns, Queensland. One of the locals who caught his attention goes by the name of E10. He is coming over to Japan later this month for a tryout in Ganbare☆Wrestling. E10 is 178cm tall, weighs 77kg and his signature moves are the Side Effect and the Frog Splash.

DDT “DRAMATIC SHINYURESE 2020”, 28/02/2020
Kanagawa Shinyuri Twenty One Hall

1. HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Hiroshi Yamato
2. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: MAO Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Akito

Two big singles matches are set for Kanagawa. If it happened today then Akito’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet is on the line. MAO might be the KO-D Openweight Champion by the time the show takes place.

DDT “DDT DOES NOT KNOW GUNMA YET 2020”, 29/02/2020
Gunma Yamada Green Dome Maebashi Sub Event Area

1. ALL OUT Vs Eruption!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai
2. The First Leap Year Of Reiwa! Inevitable Laughter Once Every 4 Years Ultra Super Mechanko Special 4 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Kazusada Higuchi
3. Akagi Mountain Is Also Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Special Single Match: Yutaka Yoshie Vs Yuki Iino

Big boys collide in Maebashi! Yutaka Yoshie made his first appearance in DDT last year in a comedy match involving a daruma and a kokeshi. This time it’s a more serious challenge in the form of Yuki Iino.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STAND PROUD”, 01/03/2020
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. International Princess Title: Thunder Rosa (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima

A message was sent to the Tokyo Joshi Pro office by Thunder Rosa earlier today. She nominates Shoko Nakajima as the No. 1 Contender for the International Princess Title. The two previously faced each other for the Princess Of Princess Title back in May last year. Nakajima won the match and Rosa wants revenge. She thinks she has the upper hand because this time she is the champion and Nakajima is the challenger.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Chris Brookes Vs Maku Donaruto
2. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

There’s another Australian heading over to Japan soon, this one for DDT. Melbourne high flyer Royce Chambers will be in DDT from 1st to 20th March. His acrobatic moves and matches from Melbourne Championship Wrestling have been getting attention online and impressed the likes of Konosuke Takeshita. DDT is bringing in Chambers on Takeshita’s recommendation. Chambers is 180cm tall, weighs 86kg and has only been wrestling for two years.

Yuni closes out the childhood portion of his wrestling life by facing his career rival Kazuki Hirata.

Thanks for sticking with DDT, Brookes. Here’s Maku Donaruto for you.

Raku begins her quest to win a match. Miu Watanabe won’t go light on her just because they are both Up Up Girls.

A bunch of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster had cameos on the latest episode of the CBS cop drama S.W.A.T. I’m not making this up. Miyu Yamashita fights a detective inside Robot Restaurant while Shoko Nakajima tries to pull a gun on the guy from Better Off Ted. I swear I’m not making this up!

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs MAO

MAO said he is honored to be competing for the KO-D Openweight Title less than 5 years into his pro wrestling career. Masato Tanaka has been wrestling since before MAO was born. MAO saw him for the first time on TV Asahi’s “World Pro Wrestling” television program back in 2010. He thinks Tanaka is one of the people who made him dream of becoming a pro wrestler so this will be a very special match. Also MAO believes the core of DDT is now made up of the DNA generation with Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo right in the centre. Winning the KO-D Title will make MAO join the centre. Tanaka wants MAO to deliver his strange brand of wrestling because he does not want to lose against that style.

The #STRONGHEARTS return to continue their business partnership with DAMNATION. They face ALL OUT with their honorary member Chihiro Hashimoto in an Elimination Tag match. Hopefully Yuki Iino has gotten over his problems with Hashimoto. Also Shunma Katsumata is back from his minor surgery. Elsewhere CIMA teams up with Soma Takao, who used to wrestle as BIMA in his college club days.

3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Danshoku Dieno & Cody Hall

Hall joined forces with Danshoku Dieno to form The Hole Brothers. This is all part of Dieno’s plan to win every championship he can in DDT. The first target in his sight is the KO-D Tag Titles held by Nautilus.

A sudden challenge has been made by Nagoya wrestler Kengo Takai. He is bringing a team with him to take on a selection of DDT wrestlers.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs X
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

The #STRONGHEARTS/DAMNATION alliance continue with a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. This all seems to be Tetsuya Endo’s idea. His work with T-Hawk & El Lindaman lately has worked out so far.

CIMA and Maku Donaruto will be on the show. Put them in the same match. Don’t put Donaruto with Yuni!

I should figure out how long Kazuki Hirata has been doing his gimmick for. Is it longer than Magnum TOKYO at this point?

FUMA, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Kouki Iwasaki will be on the show.

Aichi NGK Sports Plaza 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

The first meeting was a decisive win for Miyu Yamashita. She welcomes the rematch with Natsumi Maki but only if Maki is fully motivated for it. Whether it is because of ring rust or a mental block, the version of Maki she defeated was not the one who was top tier in the roster before her injury.

Saki Akai will be on the show.

Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno usually tweet about their sauna adventures using the hashtag #DDTサウナ部. Their bond has grown so strong that they now will team up for matches. Sadly Katsumata is currently out of action getting a metal plate removed from his cheekbone so he has to miss this one.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

The theme of Gake no Fuchi in 2020 is “I Want To Help Those Who Are In Need With Pro Wrestling”. Miyako Matsumoto is continuing this theme by using pro wrestling to find a potential bride for Chikara. This came about when Chikara took part in a rap battle and owned himself by admitting he can’t get married. The “bride” in question is Mao from the idol group Senosister. She describes herself as the Atsushi Onita of the idol world, having attended a Super FMW show in 2016 and getting Onita’s “holy water” thrown at her. She saw a picture of Chikara and was turned off because he looks like her uncle. Nevertheless, she agreed to attend the next show because her rent is due and she wants the money. Munenori Sawa was also invited to help out.

4. HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Makoto Oishi, Kota Umeda & Yukio Naya when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (9:37).
5. Daisuke Sasaki Marunage Match ~ Nerima Japan Wrestling Raising An Army Series 3rd Round In Kasukabe: Nerima Sting defeated Kodaira Sting with the Scorpion Deathlock (10:57).
6. I Am A Popular Man! Two Big Singles Match: Soma Takao defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Sorarina (11:09).
7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takeshita pinned Endo with a Crucifix Pin (16:23).

It was a bad day for Tetsuya Endo. First he was pinned by his enemy Konosuke Takeshita. An attempt to do a Handspring off the ropes was caught by Takeshita and turned into a Crucifix Pin for the unexpected three count. Then after the match Sanshiro Takagi entered the ring and gave Endo a Stunner. Hisaya Imabayashi asked if this meant Takagi was going to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. Takagi declined and said he only did it to tease Endo. When he left Endo said he will smash Takagi whenever he ues his title shot. And at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” when everyone is expecting him to be at 200% power, he will instead be at 300% power! When Endo left the ring, Takeshita gave the last word. He asked the audience if they wanted to see Takeshita Vs Takagi at Ota Ward? Only one person applauded. He then asked if they would rather have Takeshita Vs Endo? Most of the audience applauded. Finally Takeshita promised that if Endo is fighting at 300%, then he will be at 350%!

Soma Takao used a distraction with the referee to block Naomi Yoshimura’s Shonenba. Takao then kicked Yoshimura below the belt and pinned him with the Sorarina. Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno have said they will never forgive Takao for kicking both of them in the nuts during matches!

With Daisuke Sasaki out of action with food poisoning, Nerima Sting needed a new opponent. One was found from a nearby city, Kodaira Sting! Their match was interrupted by the surprise appearance of Man Man Kai Kind! He gave both Stings the Mandible Claw then left. Yukinori Matsui was later knocked out by a Nerima Stinger Splash which led to another surprise appearance. This time it was Dildo Love! Nerima easily got rid of him with the Scorpion Death Drop. Kodaira tried to put Nerima in the Scorpion Deathlock but Man Man Kai Kind reappeared to give him another Mandible Claw. Nerima then reversed the Scorpion Deathlock for the win.

The pairings of Yukio Naya and Kazusada Higuchi as well as Yukio Sakaguchi and Kota Umeda were provoking each other during Match #4. The two pairs have singles matches at Korakuen Hall on 30th June. Makoto Oishi encouraged Naya and Umeda to show their fire in those matches.

The match between Toru Owashi and Antonio Honda went off the rails when a chair was brought in. Honda placed the chair on top of Owashi then when he climbed the turnbuckles, Daisuke Kiso counted to three and declared the chair to be the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion! The match continued but with the chair still in the ring. A sudden game of musical chairs began and Kiso joined in. He sat on the chair when the music stopped and Yukinori Matsui then counted to three. Now Kiso is the Iron Man champion! Honda tried to use Gongistune on Kiso but Kiso used his own Gongitsune, tangling the two of them up in nipple pinches. Owashi gave them a double School Boy and Matsui counted the pin on both. That means Owashi pinned Honda to win the match and he also pinned Kiso to win back the title.

Asuka ignored Akito’s requests for a handshake before their match then booted him in the head after it was over. Akito’s thought process over their DDT Extreme Title match is an interview where Asuka said she can do anything. So Akito wants to use a match stipulation that Asuka has never been in before.

Spicy food from Nerima has taken its toll on Daisuke Sasaki and he is unable to wrestle on tomorrow’s show. Nerima Sting needs a new opponent. Coincidentally, a letter sent by a mysterious wrestler from nearby Kodaira was delivered to the DDT office. This wrestler claims that Nerima is a cursed city of evil. He has been cursed by this city unlike Kodaira where he lived happily every day. This wrestler formed a bond with Sasaki years ago until Sasaki brought him to Nerima. He couldn’t stand how lewd the city was but he fell for a beautiful woman and spent a night with her. He woke up the next morning alone and in unbelievable pain. He understood immediately that he now has gout! This person has sworn revenge on Sasaki and everything related to Nerima including Nerima Japan Pro Wrestling!

Real GUTS Army sent out a statement demanding their match against Ganbare☆ Wrestling to be changed. Their ultimate goal is to unite the indies but that leaves the question as to what is the definitive style of independent wrestling? They believe the most fitting type of indy match is the Scramble Bunkhouse Street Fight! Ganpro accepted the stipulation and will fight the 6-Man Tag under those rules.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
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.

Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Yuki Ueno Marunage Match: X Vs X

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.
