DDT “SATURDAY KASKABIAN! 2017” Results

September 4, 2017

DDT “SATURDAY KASKABIAN! 2017”, 02/09/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
330 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Antonio Honda, Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Hoshitango when Honda submitted Hirata with the Majigatame (6:53).
2. We Are The World! Four Countries Wrestling Summit!: Mike Bailey defeated Diego, Rekka and Royce Isaacs when Bailey pinned Rekka with the Ultima Weapon (10:56).
3. Tetsuya Endo defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Swan Dive Firebird Splash (11:14).
4. New York Style Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Soma Takao defeated Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii when HARASHIMA KISS pinned Dino with the Somato (11:15).
5. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi (c) defeated Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Takanashi pinned Oishi with the Takatonic (20:15).
*V2 for Shuten-dōji.
6. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Sasaki submitted Takeshita with La Mistica Cross Facelock (20:02).

Ken Ohka interfered in the main event to attack the DAMNATION wrestlers and apparently aid Konosuke Takeshita in the process. Ohka picked up Takeshita and encouraged him to fight. It turned out to be a ruse and Ohka gave Takeshita a Vertical Brainbuster. Ohka went to hit the Fire Spear but Daisuke Sasaki cut him off with a chairshot. With Ohka dealt with, Sasaki ducked Takeshita’s Lariat and twisted him into La Mistica Cross Facelock for the submission victory.

NωA failed to win back the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles but they now have even bigger fish to fry. Shunma Katsumata & MAO want a shot at the GHC Jr. Tag Team Titles over in NOAH! They lost to the current champions HAYATA & YO-HEY in the NOAH Jr. Tag League and they want revenge. Meanwhile Masahiro Takanashi is pissed off that DAMNATION and Ohka Empire Returns are ahead of Shuten-dōji in the Dramatic General Election.

Producer Danshoku Dino knew not to put himself and HARASHIMA in another Falls Count Anywhere match. Instead their tag match today was fought under New York Rules. Pinfalls and submissions would only count when the wrestler is kissing his opponent during the pin or submission hold. HARASHIMA agreed to the rule while both Soma Takao and Keisuke Ishii were wondering why were they being dragged into this. HARASHIMA pinned and kissed Dino to win the match. He admitted he was confused by the rules. Takao also pointed out he now kissed three people in the ring today.

An update was given on the Dramatic General Election standings. DAMNATION is dominating with Daisuke Sasaki leading the solo election and the entire group is winning the unit election. Pigging 2017 is dead last as expected.

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 20” Results

May 14, 2017

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 20”, 14/05/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
326 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Sanshiro Takagi & Hirata Collection A.T. defeated Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Hirata submitted MAO with the Hirata Lock (8:13).
2. Makoto Oishi & Saki Akai defeated Mad Paulie & Heidi Katrina when Akai pinned Katrina with the Rookie Award (7:05).
3. Danshoku Dino & Royce Isaacs Vs Toru Owashi & Shigehiro Irie ended in a No Contest (8:40).
4. Antonio Honda & Keisuke Ishii defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Honda pinned Sasaki with the Diving Fist Drop (14:59).
5. ALL OUT Vs DNA!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takeshita pinned Higuchi with the Surprise Rose (13:55).
*Konosuke Takeshita wins Kazusada Higuchi’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
6. Smile Squash Vs Shuten-dōji!: HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Yasu Urano defeated KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Urano pinned Takanashi with the Tombstone Piledriver (22:01).

Yasu Urano is picking up steam on the way to his KO-D Openweight Title shot. Today he scored the victory for Smile Squash over Shuten-dōji. But it was a bitter sweet result for Urano. This was his final match against his longtime friends and rivals as a DDT contracted wrestler. Urano was originally invited by KUDO to wrestle in DDT a decade ago and for that he will always be grateful. He is also inspired by Yukio Sakaguchi who showed him that you are never too old to try something new. Last but not least he respects Masahiro Takanashi for making up for his lack of size and power by working hard on his techniques.

The Right To Challenge Contracts took an unexpected turn when the KO-D Champion himself Konosuke Takeshita got his hands on one. Takeshita used his new Wrist Clutch Fisherman Buster to pin Kazusada Higuchi and take his gauntlet. We found out afterwards that the move is called the Surprise Rose. Akito kept asking Takeshita if he could have the RTC Contract because the champion shouldn’t need it. Takeshita kept telling him no because he knew Akito would just cash it in on him immediately. When that was settled, ALL OUT announced they will be revealing a new member of the team at the 28th May Korakuen Hall show.

Today didn’t go so well for Daisuke Sasaki. He also lost to Antonio Honda for the first time in their current series of matches. Sasaki brought in a chair after a referee bump but Honda stopped him with a Low Blow and the Scorpion Death Drop. Honda then hit the Diving Fist Drop for the finish. If that wasn’t bad enough, Sasaki also went through some women problems earlier in the show. I’ll get to that later.

The International Gay Factory’s antics were so out of control during their match with Toru Owashi & Shigehiro Irie that it ended in a No Contest. Danshoku Dino grabbed the arms of anyone from ringside from referees to wrestlers to even the GM Amon Tsurumi. Dino would grab their arms and use Royce Isaac’s Miracle Ass to break them until NωA came down to stop them. Makoto Oishi told IGF that he cannot forgive them for their actions.

Sasaki was caught red handed doing his fake translations of Heidi Katrina’s promos. After Saki Akai pinned Katrina in their tag match, Akai wanted to put an end to their feud and team up together. This time Tetsuya Koda gave the proper interpretations to Katrina and she was furious to find out Sasaki was lying to her the entire time. Sasaki kicked Koda away but the damage was done and Katrina attacked Sasaki with Akai’s help. She then accepted Akai’s offer to team up.

Masahiro Takanashi attacked Hirata Collection A.T. after the opening match. Sanshiro Takagi decided to join in by stomping his buddy because he felt like it. Takanashi demanded a singles match with Hirata at Korakuen. Amon Tsurumi decided they will get a tag team match instead. Hirata suddenly announced his partner for the match will be Daiki Shimomura’s cousin from Italy. Shimomura didn’t know he has a cousin from Italy. He was even more confused when Hirata said the cousin’s name is Hiranito Collection A.T. but whatever, he’ll go with it.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN KASUKABE” Results

May 14, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN KASUKABE”, 14/05/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
241 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Cutie Special (7:31).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Nonoko and Maho Kurone when Manase pinned Nonoko with the Neck Screw (7:16).
3. Miyu Yamashita defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Attitude Adjustment (10:24).
4. Saki-nami defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Two Step Face Kick (12:23).
5. Yuu & Syoko Nakajima defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Reika Saiki when Nakajima pinned Saiki with the Northern Lights Suplex (15:19).

After an 8 month absence, Yuka Sakazaki returned to Tokyo Joshi Pro to have her preparation match with Yuu. But the result involved the other big match up for the 4th June show. Syoko Nakajima avoided Reika Saiki’s Tower Bridge and pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex. After the match Nakajima told Saiki that next time she will beat her on her own. Yuu welcomed Sakazaki back but said she will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title against her.

Rika Tatsumi kept her promise and brought a doctor to inspect Martha’s true identity. But it wasn’t just any doctor, it was Masayuki Hayashi! Dr. Hayashi is one of the most famous ring doctors in pro wrestling, mostly known for his appearances in New Japan. Despite Saki-nami’s protests, Dr. Hayashi dragged Martha backstage while the match began. They reappeared late in the match to announce the medical results. Hayashi concluded that Martha is indeed an 8 year old girl. Foul play was considered then proven when Dr. Hayashi blinded Tatsumi with powder after the referee was knocked down. Saki-nami hit the Two Step Face Kick to steal the victory then repeated Dr. Hayashi’s results to boos. Tatsumi complained about Dr. Hayashi’s betrayal and challenged Saki to another match on 4th June. Saki would only accept if the Dragon Bombers would split up when they lose. Tatsumi fired back demanding SIN Biishiki-gun to dissolve if the Bombers win. Saki accepted and offered Dr. Hayashi to accompany her for the match. He seemed rather enamored with her so it looks like that’s a yes. In a backstage interview Dr. Hayashi admitted he had doubts over what Martha was. He originally thought Martha was a 3 year old girl… Meanwhile the Dragon Bombers are determined not to lose because they have a T-shirt going on sale soon and disbanding would cancel that product.

Azusa Takigawa announced she will be bringing back her “legendary” underground idol unit Aime on 4th June. The unit was formed 10 years ago and consisted only of Takigawa and Shuko Matsuda. Their first and only single was called “Summer Mode ☆”. Takigawa is resurrecting Aime because she wants to show Itoh Maki who the real top idol in Tokyo Joshi is.

Nonoko carried an issue of Tokyo Sports newspaper in her hands during the 3 Way Match. She ended up wearing it over her neck and shoulders to mock Yuna Manase because Manase hesitated to do anything that would damage the paper. What Nonoko didn’t expect was for Maho Kurone to attack her from behind and tear the paper off her. Manase then hit the Neck Screw on Nonoko to win the match. Nonoko still thinks she deserves to be Miss Tokyo Sports instead of Manase. She accused Manase of having fake boobs and challenged her to compare their bust measurements at Toyko Sports HQ.

Daisuke Sasaki came up with a match idea for his DDT Extreme Title defence but got drunk afterwords and forgot about it.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “NISHI E HIGASHI E 2017”, 31/05/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Debut Match: Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Vs Kaori Yoneyama
2. There Is No Choice But To Do! There Is No Choice But To Die! Decisive Battle!: Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Ganbare The Great
3. When It Is A Match! Show Me Ganbare Soul!: Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi Vs Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO

Ganbare☆Wrestling is attempting to bring back its Ganbare☆Joshi brand. The joshi project came about for a show two years ago but nothing had been done with it since. After witnessing female shootboxers from around the world at the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO, Ganpuro was inspired to bring the project back. This time Ganbare☆Joshi will be built around a brand new masked wrestler Ken Ohka is raising from scratch. The wrestler is actually Haruka Kato and she even admits as such but she is willing to reinvent herself. Her dream is to wrestle overseas and she hopes this experiment will help her achieve it. She hopes her new name will be something world class like Asuka. Her “debut” match will be against Kaori Yoneyama.

More details on the first Ganbare☆Climax emerged today. It will be a 16 man tournament open to both domestic and foreign wrestlers. Several Ganpuro wrestlers will participate but they will also be looking out for strong talent to fill in the remaining spots. It is a complete coincidence that a tournament of this calibur is taking place in Tokyo on the 11th, 12th and 13th August. Nope, no attempt at riding on another tournament’s coat tails here. None at all. Ken Ohka chose this date only because he wants to have wrestling on in the summer and the Climax refers to the end of summer. Nothing else!

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 19” Results

April 1, 2017

DDT “SAITAMA SLAM! VOL. 19”, 01/04/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
350 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Keisuke Ishii & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Ishii pinned Hirata with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (8:04).
2. KUDO Vs Mad Paulie ended in a Double Countout (6:03).
3. Toru Owashi & Shigehiro Irie defeated Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata when Irie pinned Oishi with the Beast Bomber (10:29).
4. Unit Opposition 3 Way Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Soma Takao defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi and Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino when HARASHIMA pinned Takanashi with the Somato (11:27).
5. Akito defeated Yasu Urano with the Hanamasa (11:21).
6. Happy Motels Final Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Antonio Honda & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo when Honda submitted Sasaki with the Manjigatame (20:43).

It is all over for Happy Motels. With Konosuke Takeshita taking the throne as the top man in DDT, Antonio Honda felt it was time for everyone to move on. Their final match together with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi included saw them victorious over DAMNATION. As an added treat it was Honda who scored the winning submission. He blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s Hurricanrana and countered it into a Dragon Suplex. When Sasaki kicked out Honda put him in the Manjigatame to make Sasaki tap. Honda said they would build a sexy statue of Hiroshi to celebrate the victory. He then said “April Fool’s!” Honda revealed that he came up with the idea of forming Happy Motel back when he saw Takeshita and Hiroshi wrestle each other. Hiroshi said he now feels lonely without Happy Motels but Honda reminded him that he is a pillar for BASARA and BASARA will always need him. Honda finished by saying even if they weren’t really a motel, they were still able to be happy and make others feel happy. They finished with a group pose and with that, Happy Motels have disbanded.

Something is going on with Akito, there is more to him leaving Smile Squash than just wanting a change in scenery. His match with Yasu Urano featured interference from Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. Sasaki gave Urano a Low Blow while Endo distracted the referee. Akito did not see it happen but still took advantage and pinned Urano with the Hanamasa. Urano offered a handshake after the match but Akito rejected him and stormed out of the ring. When Akito found out about DAMNATION’s interference he thought it was just an April Fool’s joke being played on him.

Yukio Sakaguchi and Yoshihiro Takayama continued fighting each other after the 3 Way Tag Match ended. Meanwhile Smile Squash are still adjusting to life without Akito. Soma Takao suggested that he and HARASHIMA go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles.

Royce Isaacs introduced himself to the audience at the start of the show. He wrestled in last year’s DNA Grand Prix and is happy for the chance to wrestle in DDT. He told the audience he will have exciting matches and they will not forget his name.

There is a change in plans for this year’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere challenge. Instead of a Battle Royal Ladder Match there will instead be five singles matches to determine who wins a contract. The matches are Akito Vs Kouki Iwasaki, Antonio Honda Vs Royce Isaacs, KUDO Vs Shigehiro Irie, Yoshihiro Takayama Vs Kazusada Higuchi and Keisuke Ishii Vs Yoshihiko. Each match will have a five minute time limit and if the time runs out the winner will be chosen by an audience vote.

Royce Isaacs will be making his DDT debut on this show. Isaacs participated in the DNA Grand Prix last year and was impressive enough to be brought in for a main tour in DDT.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING”, 14/04/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Dick Togo

The postcard plan Daisuke Sasaki put in place to find a challenger probably worked too well. Dick Togo is stepping up to the plate! Sasaki and his mentor still have bad blood brewing between them over the last year.

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The Union MAX Title now belongs to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and his first defence takes place in Korakuen Hall. It is Ryota Nakatsu’s desire to win the title because he wrestled in Union Pro for the last year of the brand’s existence but never had the chance to chase after that championship.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TOKYO 2017”, 30/04/2017
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Enjo-gun, Osaka’s First Visit!: Mitomi Masayuki & Shibata Vs Daina Mido & Hiroto Okubo
2. Ganbare Wrestling In OSAKA Special Single Match: Yukinori Abe Vs Hiro Tonai
3. I Return To Chiba’s Grace In Osaka: Minoru Fujita & Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Yasu Urano & MIYAWAKI
4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) Vs Atsushi Maruyama

Earlier this month Ken Ohka won the World Jr. Heavyweight Title over in K-DOJO. The title lineage can be traced all the way back to FMW. Ohka wants Atsushi Maruyama to be his first challenger because he has been an inspiration to Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Also if Ohka wants to be a strong champion he needs to defend the belt against strong challengers so he’s giving Maruyama the home field advantage by holding the title match in Osaka!
