*Miracle Apricots become the 1st TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!

The Miracle Apricots win the tournament to become the first ever TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions! Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima met the Dragon Bombers of Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone in the final. Tatsumi stopped Sakazaki from hitting the Magical Girl Splash to Kurone but the Apricots joined up to give Tatsumi a Double 619. Nakajima then positioned Kurone in the ring with a DDT and Sakazaki hit the Magical Girl Splash to win the match. The new champions were giddy with excitement when they were handed the belts. Nakajima said when she started wrestling she was weak but now she became strong. Sakazaki agreed and said she is stronger too. Nakajima threw out the challenge to the rest of Tokyo Joshi Pro to chase after them. Sakazaki thought bigger and opened up the challenge to the entire planet. Their next goal is to conquer Earth!

After The Ito Respect Army lost to Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi, Maki Ito teased Mizuki for losing to Saiki at last month’s TOKYO Princess Title Match. Saiki denied losing to her. Ito then became sad because she was pinned by Saiki today. Ito played it up so Mizuki could console her and the fans would chant her name. Ito cheered up and suddenly decided to open up membership for the Ito Respect Army! Ito then told Tetsuya Koda he is now the manager of the group. She even chased him down backstage, forcing him to accept her offer and wear the group’s T-shirt.

Before the NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun match begun, Saki-nami told everyone that she found the whereabouts of Martha’s parents. The maid will soon be reunited with them so today was Martha’s last match. Nonoko figured out that when Martha leaves, Saki-nami will be all alone. She offered her a spot to join Konkatsu-gun but Nonoko turned it into a surprise attack instead. Martha used her mop to distract Azusa Takigawa and Saki-nami kicked her in the head to get the win. Saki-nami announced afterwards that she will return alone at the next Tokyo Joshi show. When NEO Biishiki-gun left, Takigawa talked to Nonoko about their future. It’s been a year since Konkatsu-gun was formed and they haven’t gained any results since then. They haven’t won many matches and they certainly haven’t gotten married. Although it upsets them to do so, they both agreed to end Konkatsu-gun at least for the time being. They came up with the idea that when both of them eventually get married, then they will reunite as a team.

There was a promise of a serious announcement being held during the show. Hyper Misao revealed she will be back from injury on 23rd November for her first wrestling match since January! She even put in the effort of making her own poster to announce it. Misao said she will be busy tonight preparing all the tickets that will be sold to the fans coming to see her.

KUDO Gets A Concussion, KO-D 6-Man Titles Vacated

October 10, 2017

KUDO was concussed during the main event of yesterday’s show in Sapporo. His doctor said that there is no need for him to stay in a hospital but KUDO will be out of action for at least one month so he has plenty of time to recover. Because of this decision, Shuten-dōji have agreed to vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Their next defence was originally scheduled for 14th October against ALL OUT but that match has been cancelled. A match to crown the new champions will be determined on a later date.

DDT “HOW ABOUT MONDAY 2017”, 09/10/2017
Sapporo Susukino Mars Gym
414 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Modified Cobra Clutch (8:20).

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi by TKO when Marufuji knocked out KUDO (14:17).
*V2 for HarashiMarufuji.

The main event was stopped after a freak accident when Naomichi Marufuji did a cartwheel past KUDO to counter an Irish Whip and he accidentally clipped him in the head with his knee, knocking KUDO out cold. KUDO was taken to the nearby hospital and was diagnosed with a concussion. Marufuji apologised to everyone for the accident and takes the blame for what happened. HARASHIMA tried to cheer up Marufuji and told everyone that as much as they prepare for their matches, what happens in the ring can get beyond their control. Marufuji promised to continue defending the KO-D Tag Team Titles until KUDO can challenge them again so they can finish their match.

Danshoku Dino’s latest round of mind games against Konosuke Takeshita didn’t work today. He told everyone that one way to damage the heart of the champion is to make him lose to a wrestler with a shallow career, so Dino’s plan was to make Kouki Iwasaki beat Takeshita. Producer Dino motivated Iwasaki by giving him a grand entrance with the fans showing their support. Dino then told everyone about Iwasaki’s experience playing football, the best fighting sport. Iwasaki’s kicks were developed from his football skills. Dino told Iwasaki that he can double the power of his Penalty Kick by running the ropes twice. According to Dino it is powerful enough to pin wrestlers for four seconds. Iwasaki did the Penalty Kick to Takeshita during the match but Takeshita kicked out at two. He then hit back with a Big Boot and got the win over Iwasaki’s team with the Surprise Rose. It’s back to the drawing board for Dino.

Daisuke Sasaki claimed that today would be his final match before he emptied Ken Ohka’s bank account and become the Million Dollar Man. He gave an emotional speech thanking the rest of DAMNATION for their time together. Tetsuya Endo wiped tears from his eyes, hugged Sasaki and urged Mad Paulie to do the same. Sasaki said now he is leaving wrestling Endo will have to move back into his parent’s house and Paulie will have to go back to his home too. He also asked the fans to continue cheering Shuji Ishikawa even though he isn’t here today because he works so hard in his matches. Sasaki gathered the present DAMNATION wrestlers together to say their catchphrase, apparently for the last time.

Tomoya and Kazuki Hirata had a musical duel singing both of their entrance songs a cappella. Hirata chopped Tomoya during his song then Tomoya and the rest of his team Super Kicked Hirata when he performed leading to the finish.

Antonio Honda did not want to fight Saki Akai during the 3 Way Match. He held back from hitting her whenever he had the opportunity to. He even tried to take Akai’s place whenever Makoto Oishi attacked her. Honda confessed his admiration for Akai but she turned him down. That’s when Honda turned sides and now had no problem wrestling her. Oishi joined in and held Akai down so Honda could hit the Diving Fist Drop. However Oishi raised Akai’s foot to block Honda and Oishi then gave him the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to steal the pin.

7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) and Ken Ohka (I/c) when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (21:46).
*V6 for Daisuke Sasaki. V8 for Konosuke Takeshita. Ken Ohka fails in V4. Daisuke Sasaki becomes the 25th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion! Daisuke Sasaki wins Ken Ohka’s 714,146 yen!

Three champions entered the main event. One would leave with two titles, one would leave without a belt and the odd one out would be doing alright actually. Konosuke Takeshita and Daisuke Sasaki already have a lot of history with each other over the KO-D Openweight Title. The wild card was Ken Ohka. Not only was he defending the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title but earlier in the week Sasaki stole his bank account details! Sasaki did it because he thinks his own DDT Extreme Title is more valuable so he’d rather win Ohka’s money instead of the Indy Jr. Title. So now Ohka was fighting for both his championship and his money. This was confirmed when Hisaya Imabayashi took in Ohka’s savings book along with the three title belts during the ring introductions. Alliances were made and broken all throughout the match. Takeshita had Sasaki set up for the finish when he went into position for a Power Bomb but Ohka cut him off with the Fire Spear. Ohka then rallied the crowd and waited for Sasaki to get up for the Fire Spear. It all went wrong and Sasaki countered the Spear into the Cross Facelock. Ohka pulled himself over to the ropes but Sasaki rolled him back into the middle of the ring. Ohka tapped out before Takeshita could break the hold. As a result, Sasaki is still the DDT Extreme Champion and is now the new Independent Jr. Champion! Oh, and he now also claims all 714,146 yen of Ken Ohka’s money!

Sasaki was then informed he will have to defend the Indy Jr. Title against Shiori Asahi in K-DOJO for their 15th October show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita is still the KO-D Champion and the result counts as a successful title defence for him. His next defence will be on 22nd October at Korakuen against the Dramatic General Election winner or if he wins the election, an opponent of his choice. Sadly for Ohka, he leaves with nothing. Sasaki told Takeshita that their grudge hasn’t been settled yet. If the fans want to see that happen, vote for Sasaki! He was told to stop campaigning inside the ring because it is against the rules. Sasaki leaned away from his comments and said of course he doesn’t know when they will fight each other again. Sasaki ended the show with a message to everyone watching whether it was on AbemaTV, Samurai! TV, DDT UNIVERSE, in Japan and around the world. He is “Charisma” Daisuke Sasaki! You only have to remember his name. Mother Earth and the DDT ring will turn to the centre of DAMNATION!

One of the longest relationships in DDT’s 20 year history was revisited when HARASHIMA faced KUDO. They have been both tag partners and enemies throughout their careers. Plenty of kicks and Diving Knee Drops were on offer. HARASHIMA’s Somato was countered with KUDO using his own Double Knee Kick. KUDO went for the Diving Double Knee Drop aiming for the back of HARASHIMA’s head but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. HARASHIMA climbed the ropes but KUDO kicked him off and left him to dangle upside down by his legs. KUDO then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to the outside. HARASHIMA fought back as much as he could but couldn’t outkick KUDO. He finally fell down to a Buzzsaw Kick and was pinned with the Diving Double Knee Drop. In his post-match interview KUDO said he was greatful for HARASHIMA’s “special existence” because their matches inspire him. KUDO was also happy because his family was in the audience today and they got to see him wrestle. HARASHIMA was disappointed he lost but hopes his rivalry with KUDO will continue for another 21 or 22 years. He does not want his rivalry to end with a loss.

Entire homes were supposedly on the line for the Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine bout. It was a Loser Leaves House match where whoever lost would be forced to move out of their current home. Sasadango was accompanied by Muscle Sakai but Sakai quickly moved over to a laptop so he could show off a PowerPoint Presentation titled “Consideration On Traceability Of Masked Wrestlers In The Professional Wrestling Industry”. Sakai has been busy away from wrestling, balancing careers in both film making and the molding industry. He is so busy that it leaves him feeling sluggish. One of the problems relating to this is he lives a double life as Super Sasadango Machine. Sakai’s solution was to sell all rights of the Super Sasadango Machine gimmick to a company called CyberAdango to form a subsidiary called M&A.

The subsidiary will rent out the Sasadango gimmick to other wrestlers, which explains how Sakai and Sasadango could be seen together recently. Sakai then revealed that the massive rookie Yuki Ino is renting the Sasadango gimmick and is the person currently under the mask. Also part of the deal allows Sakai and Sasadango to still be recognised as one person so they will be fighting Dino two on one even though it is still officially a singles match. Finally, Sakai said his plan for the match was to poke Dino in the eyes and blind him with the Iron Claw. Sakai then put on his Sasadango gear and entered the match. His plan worked perfectly during the match until Ino pulled off his own Sasadango mask and tights to reveal Danshoku tights underneath! Ino gave Sakai the Lip Lock then threw him into Dino for the Danshoku Driver. The referee raised both Dino and Ino’s hands in victory even though Ino looked embarrased. Sakai was furious at Ino for betraying him. Ino admitted he switched sides when Dino gave him the Lip Lock during the match. In the post-match interview both Dino and Sakai ignored questions about if the match stipulation would be upheld.

Some miscommunication between Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie cost them their match against Soma Takao & Yasu Urano. Paulie’s Corner Splash to Takao missed and instead squashed Endo by mistake. Paulie was so concerned over Endo that he couldn’t fight out of Takao’s La Magistral Cradle and was pinned.

Ryuichi Sekine wanted to get his hands on Saki Akai but wound up getting blocked. Meanwhile Yukio Sakaguchi and Rocky Kawamura had a strike duel that ended in a stalemate when Sakaguchi’s High Kick met with Kawamura’s Straight Mix Punch. Akai hit a Diving Cross Body on Kawamura but he used the momentum to roll backwards on top of her for the pin.

Yuu spent the early part of the show being chased by other wrestlers who wanted the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. She found a room to hide in, ate some katsudon with chopsticks and took a nap afterwards. Yukinori Matsui entered the room and saw the chopstick were on top of Yuu’s chest. 1…2…3! The Disposable Chopsticks were now the champion! Royce Isaacs suddenly appeared and snapped the chopsticks in half with his Miracle Ass. Now he is the champion. Isaacs then went out to the ring to defend the belt in a Battle Royal. Sanshiro Takagi entered the match still wearing his suit from the earlier announcement at the start of the show. Matsuno Collection A.T. took part in the match instead of Gorgeous Matsuno. Antonio Honda distracted Isaacs with a story about “Gon, The Little Fox” mixed in with Lupin III called “Lupine III”. The trick worked, Honda poked Isaacs’s in the eyes and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Yoshihiko then pinned Honda to become champion. Kazuki Hirata grabbed Yoshihiko and used it to hit Yuni with. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko with a Fire Thunder Driver to win the belt. Hirata went on to eliminate five opponents in quick succession by using his HIRATA GO! glasses to make them dance and drop their guards. Only Yuni was left and the kid pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana to win the title and the Battle Royal! Yuni celebrated with Makoto Oishi who lifted him up on his shoulder. Oishi then betrayed Yuni and gave him a Backbreaker to win the belt from him! His moment of glory was cut short when Yuu returned. She flipped him over with a throw and dropped him with the Last Ride to regain her title. She was then chased away from ringside by more wrestlers. When Yuu was finally safe and alone, she had an interview and revealed that she does the Last Ride in dedication to the late Super Uchu Power. She was very happy to do it in a DDT Korakuen Hall show. Yuu said she loves the Iron Man Title the most in the world and wonders if there is anybody else who cherishes it as much as she does.

The show kicked off with an NωA musical performance. While they were singing, Yuu appeared with the Iron Man Title and she was chased around the ring by other wrestlers. When she escaped, the match went on as normal and NωA won. Shunma Katsumata & MAO cut off Kouki Iwasaki and focused their attacks on Mizuki Watase. MAO hit Watase with the Screw High Kick and Katsumata got rid of Iwasaki with a Lightning Spiral. Katsumata then pinned Watase with the Firebird Splash.

Diego rolled away from Daiki Shimomura’s Swanton Bomb then hit him with the VHS to win the dark match.

The DDT roster including wrestlers from DNA, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling gathered in the ring for the announcement of the company becoming a member of CyberAgent group. Sanshiro Takagi was accompanied by the president of CyberAgent, Susumu Fujita. Takagi told everyone he is staying on as the company president and will continue to run DDT as normal. He brought up AbemaTV as a CyberAgent property that is influential among the younger generation. DDT can now use that to their advantage. With this new relationship, Takagi wants DDT to become the No. 1 pro wrestling company in the industry! Susumu admitted he was not a pro wrestling fan but enjoyed watching DDT’s Street Wrestling and Beer Garden shows. He even attended the Beer Garden show hosted by Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine and came away impressed by DDT’s vision of pro wrestling. He assures all of the fans that he does not want DDT to change at all. He wants to make DDT bigger of course but has faith in Takagi’s leadership to make DDT No. 1 in the future. Takagi then rallied the wrestlers group by group. DDT will make the next step. The DDT wrestlers cheered. DNA will make the next step. The DNA wrestlers cheered. BASARA will make the next step. The BASARA wrestlers cheered. Tokyo Joshi will make the next step. The Joshi wrestlers cheered. Ganpuro will make the next step. Ken Ohka cheered then realised he was the only Ganpuro wrestler in the ring.

Takagi reappeared at the end of the show to remind everyone he will continue to be DDT president and as president he will continue to enrich the pro wrestling world.

The schedule for the first ever D King Grand Prix was revealed. There will be 8 shows featuring tournament matches starting on 5th January in Shinjuku FACE with the final taking place at Korakuen Hall on 28th January.

DDT will be teaming up with Ring☆Dream once more to produce a 3rd wrestling show together on 16th December. Two new characters for the game based on DDT wrestlers will be unveiled at next month’s Korakuen show.

DDT will do two matches at the Tokyo Ramen Show 2017 on 26th October.

5. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura defeated Miyu Yamashita by TKO with a Sleeper Hold (10:47).
6. Dream Dragon Bombers Vs NEO Biishiki-gun: Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Shiro Koshinaka defeated Saki-nami, Martha & Yukio Saint Laurent when Tatsumi pinned Saki-nami with the Hip Attack (10:36).
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki defeated Yuka Sakazaki (c) with the Jackhammer (14:13).
*Yuka Sakazaki fails in V1. Reika Saiki becomes the 4th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

Reika Saiki is now the top girl of Tokyo Joshi Pro after becoming the new TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion! Fortune was on her side when she previously beat the champion Yuka Sakazaki in the final of the Tokyo Princess Cup earlier this month. Success came again when Saiki rolled away from Sakazaki’s Magical Girl Splash. She then hit two Shining Wizards and the Jackhammer to win the championship. Saiki said when she discovered her muscles and then discovered pro wrestling it was a dream combination for her.

In preparation for the confrontation between the Dragon Bombers and NEO Biishiki-gun, Rika Tatsumi has spent her days training her hips to become more powerful. After all, she was going to team with the Hip Attack master Shiro Koshinaka. The training paid off when Tatsumi pinned Saki-nami with the Hip Attack while Koshinaka and Maho Kurone kept the rest of the opposition at bay. Saki-nami protested by saying it was only a two count but fainted when she realised she lost.

Miyu Yamashita went into her match against Meiko Satomura with something to prove. Satomura wasn’t impressed with Yamashita when they last fought at “JUDGEMENT 2017” back in March. Yamashita tried her best but was put away with the Death Valley Bomb followed by a Sleeper Hold. After the match Satomura waited for Yamashita to stand back up before gesturing at her to come over. Yamashita slapped Satomura across the face and demanded a rematch. Impressed by her courage, Satomura honoured Yamashita for a good match and left.

Syoko Nakajima defeated Sojo Darling in Darling’s first match for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The two bonded over their costumes and were full of praise for each other afterwards. Nakajima called Darling an “amazing monster” and is excited to discover how many more exist overseas. If Darling travelled all the way to Japan then Nakajima thinks she can go wrestle abroad too. Darling said Nakajima is a wonderful athlete and her Northern Lights Suplex is a tremendous finishing move.

Yuu overcame the numbers disadvantage to beat Marika Kobashi and Nodoka-oneesan in an Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title defence. Yuu thanked the fans for supporting her as she achieved her dream of winning and defending the championship. She was interrupted by DDT Producer Danshoku Dino. He said he didn’t want to go near Tokyo Joshi Pro because he doesn’t like girls but he had to come here for business reasons. He told Yuu that the next scheduled defence of the Iron Man Title will be at DDT’s next Korakuen Hall show on 24th September in a Battle Royal. So if Yuu is still the champion she will have to be there. Both Kobashi and Nodoka tried to sneak pins on Yuu when Dino was finished but she escaped from both of them.

Azusa Takigawa and Maki Ito finally settled their grudge in an Idol Lumberjack Death Match. NωA and Cheer♥1 were the lumberjacks and they were all armed with Pico Pico Hammers to attack the wrestlers whenever they were outside the ring. Sanshiro Takagi was also there as the referee. Ito entered to a LinQ song but she demanded to cut it off because she was fired from the group. So she sang “I’m Not In Love Anymore” by Makihara Noriyuki for the rest of the entrance until Takigawa attacked her. The two fought out of the ring and ran away from the lumberjacks up to the entrance stage. Takagi followed them and hit both of them over the head with his Pico Pico Hammer to make them return to the ring. Ito put Takigawa in a Crab Hold but Takigawa reached the ropes. Ito pulled her away and changed the submission into an Elevated Crab Hold to make Takigawa give up. Ito told all the lumberjacks to go home because they weren’t needed anymore. They all threw their hammers at her.

Yuki Kamifuku came out for her debut match wearing sunglasses, a ten gallon hat and hot pants. She was pinned by Mizuki with the Cutie Special. In her backstage interview Kamifuku complained about being sore and tired. She also wanted to go drink some sake but was warned it is against the rules for Tokyo Joshi wrestlers do drink alcohol.

600 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Gorgeous Matsuno Triumphant Match!: Gorgeous Matsuno, Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei defeated Yukio Collection A.T., Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi when Matsuno pinned Hirata with a Cradle (8:05).
2. NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Rice Ball Wrestling: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Sumire Natsu & Riho (w/ Norika Asatte) when Martha pinned Natsu with a Jacknife and Backslide Pin Combo (15:31).
3. 3 Way Match: Daisuke Kiso defeated KUDO and DJ Nira by Disqualification when Nira assaulted the referee (11:05).
4. Shuten-dōji Vs Monster Army: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi (w/ Kota Umeda) defeated Colonel Ima, Private Honda & Superior Private Higuchi (w/ Sgt. Hino) when Sakaguchi pinned Honda with the Right Knee Of God (11:25).

Shuten-dōji were tasked with defending their show from an invasion by the revived Monster Army. In the main even Yuji Hino came out with his soldiers Hoshitango, Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda. Shuten-dōji were backed up by Kota Umeda. When Shuten-dōji won the match, Masahiro Taknashi got everyone to chant Umeda’s name. Umeda said it’s been a long time since he wrestled but his foot is still recovering. He hopes to return in time for the Dramatic General Election so he can help Shuten-dōji make it to first place.

On the surface Match #3 looked like it was KUDO Vs DJ Nira. It went on as any usual match would until Nira gave the referee Daisuke Kiso the Rocket Punch. When Kiso called for the match to end in a disqualification it was revealed to be a 3 Way Match all along and Kiso was the third competitor! Kiso declared himself the winner.

Martha used her mop to pin down Sumire Natsu’s shoulders during a Backslide Pin then Saki-nami added a Jackknife to get the three count. After the match Saki told Riho see shes a little bit of beauty in her but Natsu is ugly and cheap when she wears a rice ball hat on her head. Saki suddenly felt weak and was about to collapse until Yukio Saint Laurent arrived and handed her a small bottle of incense. Saki drank from it and felt better.

Kazuki Hirata was confused by the appearance of Yukio Collection A.T. He wondered if it was Yukio Sakaguchi in disguise. Yukio in response asked if Hirata was Hirata Collection A.T. During the match Yukio attacked everyone during his model walk, especially Hirata. Gorgeous Matsuno missed the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow on Hirata so Yukio just threw him on top for the pin. Toru Owashi asked Matsuno where he went while he was deported from Japan. Matsuno said Fukushima. Owashi told him he was supposed to be banished from the entire country so he should please leave immediately. Matsuno protested and said he was supposed to be performing on tomorrow’s show but everyone grabbed him and carried him out of the building.

KUDO & Sakaguchi met NEO Biishiki-gun for the first time during the opening introductions. Neither group recognised the other. Saki-nami said Sakaguchi reminded her of her doctor but with barbaric eyes. KUDO had to stop Sakaguchi from getting angry by offering a toast. Saki said that Martha is a little girl who is too young to drink but today is a special occasion so she was allowed to join in.

With less than a month away before “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”, the journey to Sumo Hall went through a lot of bumps and turns in Korakuen Hall today. Konosuke Takeshita had not just one but two KO-D Openweight Title defences, clearing through the last of the Right To Challenge holders. First up was the scheduled main event against Keisuke Ishii. For weeks Ishii had been preparing the Final Cut learned from Kaz Hayashi as his secret weapon. Unfortunately for him, when it was finally time to use it Takeshita countered the move into an Emerald Frosion. Kind of ironic given Ishii’s adoration for classic All Japan that such a move would be used against him. With his battleplan in tatters, Ishii still had it in him to kick out of the German Suplex and some Big Boots. But the Surprise Rose finally put him down for the count.

After the match Takeshita wanted to create peace between his generation and Ishii’s. It isn’t about which generation is better, it’s about doing your best for DDT. He even invited Shigehiro Irie to come out as part of the peace offering. What he got instead was an ambush Lariat from Naomi Yoshimura! Today was the day Yoshimura would give Takeshita his greatest humiliation. He’s cashing in the last Right To Challenge contract for his title shot right now! What followed was Takeshita’s fight for survival as Yoshimura tried to beat him with big move after big move. A high angle choke Slam couldn’t beat Takeshita. A Power Bomb from the apron through a table couldn’t beat him. More Lariats couldn’t beat him. Takeshita finally turned the tables when he escaped the Throwaway Power Bomb and hit back with Lariats and Shoulder Blocks. He was now besting Yoshimura in these sumo-like collisions just like when they were kids. Yoshimura couldn’t handle it and his quest for revenge ended in failure after one Lariat too many. Takeshita won and now has a clear road ahead to Sumo Hall where Tetsuya Endo is waiting for him.

Endo entered the ring to show his disappointment over the result. He thought fighting Yoshimura would be the more interesting match. He reminded Takeshita that it was just over one year ago when Endo joined DAMNATION. A lot has changed since then but one thing remained the same. Endo wants the KO-D Title and he’ll have to beat Takeshita to get it! Takeshita didn’t hold back over what he wanted to say to his former friend. If Takeshita beats Endo in another title match and at Sumo Hall this time then Endo shouldn’t get another shot as long as Takeshita is champion. Endo agreed to the condition. Takeshita then reminded Endo about their 60 minute draw and said everyone at Sumo Hall better be prepared to see another one. He offered a handshake but Endo spat in his face instead. Takeshita remained calm but then grabbed Endo’s hair and pulled him in for a Short Range Lariat. Endo ducked, bounced off the ropes and hit a Handspring Leg Lariat to the champion. He followed it up with the Shooting Star Press. Endo grabbed the title belt and had the final word. Fair and square? Endo isn’t here to kid around. Wrestling isn’t a sport, it’s a fight. Takeshita told him that one year ago. Now Endo will return that message to him!

High risk, high reward was needed to determine a winner between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan so a Ladder Match was held with the DDT Extreme Title hanging above the ring. Ryan wasted no time when he dove out of the ring onto Sasaki during the champion’s entrance. Ryan later gave Sasaki a Brainbuster onto the ladder outside the ring. He looked all clear to climb the ladder inside the ring and grab the title but Sasaki caught his attention by pulling out a picture of Laura James and kissing it. Ryan got off the ladder but that allowed Sasaki to come back in and take control of the match. Sasaki brought out a trash can to beat Joey up with. He then wrapped a steel chain around his arm and jumped for a Diving Elbow but Joey rolled out of the way. Ryan took out a lollipop covered in thumbtacks and shoved it into Sasaki’s mouth! Sasaki hit back with a Chain Lariat then used the chain to wrap a Cross Facelock on Joey. Sasaki then brought out a barbed wire bat but Joey Super Kicked him with the lollipop still in his mouth! Then Ryan brought out the most dangerous weapon yet… a box of Lego! Ever step on one of those things without shoes on? Then you know how much they hurt. Ryan spilled the Lego onto the canvas and gave Sasaki the Balls Plex onto the Lego. He climbed the ladder but somehow Sasaki recovered, grabbed the second ladder and hit him with it to slow him down. Sasaki then position the second ladder between the first ladder and the top rope. Joey reached for the title belt but Sasaki threw him off with a Back Body Drop onto the second ladder! That left Sasaki free to pull down the belt and stay as the Extreme Champion.

Sasaki celebrated with the title belt and the picture of Laura James. He was approached by Amon Tsurumi and asked who he would like to defend the title against at Sumo Hall. Sasaki said he wants to go to America and defend against Candice LeRae. Tsurumi told him to forget about it because that request is impossible. Akito came out and asked for the title shot. Tsurumi liked the idea. After all, Akito eliminated Sasaki in the King Of DDT tournament and also has wins over him in 3 Way Matches. Sasaki said he would agree to it on one condition. Their match will also be “Cabellera Contra Cabellera”, a Hair Vs Hair Match! Akito accepted because he made up his mind long ago how much he is willing to risk to become a champion again. He’ll bet all of the hair on his head if he has to!

Irie appeared in the ring with his head heavily bandaged for his KO-D Tag Team Titles defence with Kazusada Higuchi. They were in for a fight against the DAMNATION pair of Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie. The four brawled around the ring and it looked like the challengers were coming out on top. Ishikawa gave Irie the Fire Thunder while Paulie hit Higuchi with the Reverse Splash. However Higuchi recovered and sent Paulie into the corner. Irie ran in with a Cannonball Splash to Paulie which stunned him. Higuchi then put the big guy away with the Goten for the three count. The YaroZ were presented with their title belts by Ayumi Goto who herself was wearing the OPBF Oriental Pacific Women’s Super Bantamweight Title.

Afterwards Tsurumi invited HARASHIMA to the ring for an announcement concerning the Tag Titles. HARASHIMA will be challenging for the belts at Sumo Hall with someone who will certainly make DDT more exciting. Out came Naomichi Marufuji! HARASHIMA said he was exciting to put this together. Marufuji wanted everyone to know he isn’t doing this match as a guest wrestler. He is here because he wants to win the Tag Titles with somebody as skillful as HARASHIMA. Irie is pleased. He respects Marufuji and cannot wait to crush him!

Soma Takao must be feeling left out. He returns from illness to win a 4 Way Tag with HARASHIMA then HARASHIMA goes and makes friends with Marufuji for a big championship match. Now what is Takao going to do at Sumo Hall?

Shunma Katsumata Vs Tetsuya Endo didn’t last three minutes. Katsumata attacked Endo during his entrance and tried to get a quick win but it backfired when Endo pinned him with Tetsuya In The Sky. Backstage Katsumata excused the loss by saying he was feeling tired from wrestling in the NOAH Jr. Tag League.

Saki Akai wanted to see how much she has grown since her last meeting with Yoshiko. The result was inconclusive because Masahiro Takanashi pinned Makoto Oishi instead, leaving the two women to glare at each other after the match.

Japanese livelihoods were on the line in the opener. If T2Hide lost then both Hirata Collection A.T. and Gorgeous Matsuno would be deported from the country. But if they won then nobody could ever accuse Hira-Colle of being Kazuki Hirata in disguise ever again. A draw meant only Hira-Colle would be deported and Matsuno would be safe. To make things even more tense the match was held under (deep breath) Italian Falls Count Anywhere Match Scramble Bunkhouse Street Fight Tornado 6-Man Tag rules. Antonio Honda tried to calm the situation by telling the good old summer story “Pirates Of The Caribbean” but he replaced the name Caribbean with Parisian. Danshoku Dino won the match for his team by countering the Hirata Lock into a Cradle for the pin. Everyone celebrated by grabbing Hirata and carrying him out of the building. A message was then produced on the screen advertising Kazuki Hirata’s return to DDT on 30th August.

In the dark match, Daiki Shimomura tried to beat Kouki Iwasaki with Standing Moonsaults. Iwasaki fought back with Knee Lifts and won the match with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. That is quickly becoming is go to move for beating opponents from the generation below him.

The brand new KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles were shown off for the first time. Each belt is a different colour. The belts are red, blue, pink, yellow and green. The first champions will be decided at Sumo Hall with Toru Owashi and Makoto Oishi captaining the two teams. They will announce their team choices at the first Beer Garden show on 30th July.

Katsumata was told he would be getting a special singles match at Sumo Hall. He will face Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio! The WRESTLE-1 pretty boy ran around Korakuen Hall greeting the audience while Tsurumi tried to get his attention to keep the show on schedule. The match means something to both wrestlers because they are both the same age and were also trainees together in an old promotion called SMASH.

Miyu Yamashita appeared to promote her match against Meiko Satomura in Tokyo Joshi Pro on 26th August. She admitted she had a bad performance at the press conference announcing the match. Satomura’s comments about Yamashita drove her to tears. Yamashita said when she woke up the next day she threw away all of her admiration for Satomura and replaced them with a desire to kill her in the ring!
