For the 2nd time Yuu has won the TOKYO Princess Cup! The final rounds took place today with Yuu beating Nodoka-oneesan and Yuka Sakazaki beating Rika Tatsumi to set up the main event. Yuu’s big win happened when she caught Sakazaki in midair and Power Bombed her. She then hit the Last Ride Power Bomb for the three count. Yuu let out a big cry when she won.

Yuu said she first won the Princess Cup two years ago. She wasn’t afraid of anything back then because she was undefeated and she had a lot of fun with wrestling. This time however there is a lot on her mind. She lost the TOKYO Princess Title, the girls around her a getting stronger and there are new juniors underneath her filling up the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. It has her wondering where her place in Tokyo Joshi is. But the one thing she can do without fail is believe in her strength. She believes in her wrestling and is happy to be a part of Tokyo Joshi. She might be in a better place now than she was two years ago. That leads to something else Yuu wants to do. She called out Miyu Yamashita and challenged her to a TOKYO Princess Title match! Yuu believes she has to be at a certain level to fight for the championship and today she reached it. Yamashita said of course she accepts the challenge. Yamashita knows her strength the best and told Yuu not to limit herself. Yamashita wants both herself and Yuu to be at their mental and physical best until one of them runs out. The match will take place on the 25th August Korakuen Hall show. Yuu promised she will be standing in the ring at the end of the summer as the TOKYO Princess Champion!

In the semi-finals, Nodoka was beaten with the Katahajime but she never gave up. The referee had to stop the match when she lost consciousness. Nodoka thanked everyone for their support and said she changed a lot of minds in just three matches. She wants to take the next step this summer.

Tatsumi threw everything she had at Sakazaki including a surprise attack to start the match. Sakazaki was able to escape the Dragon Sleeper by rolling out of it. She then countered the Dragon Twist Of Fate into the Merry Go Round. That put Tatsumi in position for the Magical Magical Girl Splash to give Sakazaki the victory. It was a blow for Tatsumi because she anticipated reaching the final.

Maki Ito Headbutted her way out of trouble and score the win for her team.

NEO Biishiki-gun won their match in spite of some tension between Azusa Christie and Martha. Christie got in the way whenever Martha & Sakisama did double team moves together. Hikari from the Up Up Girls almost got a surprise win over Sakisama with a Cobra Twist and a Sleeper Hold but Sakisama eventually made her give up to the Versailles Foot Choke. Christie and Martha continued to bother each other after the match so Sakisama ordered both of them to sit down. She told both of them how ugly they were acting today. Sakisama loves both of them equally. Christie protested and said she only wants Sakisama to love her. Sakisama asked Christie if she trusts her and Christie eventually replied with “Only Saki’s love is the truth”. Now calm, Christie admitted she may have judged Martha too soon. She promises to be more strong, friendly and beautiful for Sakisama in the future. Christie and Martha reconciled and look to be back on the same page. For now.

Hyper Misao thinks Yuki Aino needs a heroic awakening to win a match so she gave her a superhero mask similar to her own to wear. When Aino put the mask on, she found out that the mask allows Misao to talk directly to her heart. Yuki Aino turned into Hyper Yuki and she did a lot of Misao’s mannerisms. The power did help Aino when she fought Yuna Manase but every time she made progress, Misao ran in to try and steal the pin. Aino had enough of Misao taking advantage of her and wrestled the rest of the match without the mask. But without the extra power, Aino fell to Manase and lost the match.

Two new trainees introduced themselves. Mahiro is from Gunma. Himawari Unagi is a Youtuber and an actor. Both girls began their training in May.

A one day tag team lottery tournament will take place at the Tokyo Joshi Pro Beer Garden show on 4th August. The Yeah! Metcha Tag Team Tournament 2018 Summer will feature between 6 to 8 teams made up of random pairings. The winning team will receive a gorgeous prize named after the summer.

Priscilla Kelly returns to Tokyo Joshi in August. Her confirmed shows so far are 18/8 in Nagoya and 25/8 in Korakuen.

4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Nodoka-oneesan defeated Yuna Manase with the Back Flip (7:58).

6. Mizuki & Hinano defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Raku when Mizuki pinned Raku with the 2nd Rope Diving Foot Stomp (9:41).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miyu Yamashita defeated Maki Ito with the Attitude Adjustment (12:01).
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuu defeated Reika Saiki with the Last Ride (11:55).

The winners of the two previous Tokyo Princess Cups faced off in the main event. Yuu blocked the Jackhammer and sent Reika Saiki into the corner with the John Yuu dropkick. She then finished her off with the Last Ride to advance. Yuu said it’s been a long time since she last won a main event match so she is really happy today! She can feel her own momentum returning and Tokyo Joshi Pro itself is getting bigger because of all the hard work everyone is doing. Yuu wants to win the tournament so Tokyo Joshi can grow more by using her kind of pro wrestling.

Miyu Yamashita and Nodoka-oneesan also advanced with wins over Maki Ito and Yuna Manase respectively. Yamashita noted that Ito has improved since their last match against each other. Ito was more driven and Yamashita admits she had difficulty escaping from Ito’s Inverted Crab Hold. Ito is upset over the defeat but she assures everyone she will never break because she will not lose forever. Nodoka is happy to win her match and wants to win the next one because she is greedy.

Hyper Misao came up with several traps to use against Saki-sama. She held something wrapped up in cloth and claimed it was Saki-sama’s possessions. Misao asked Saki-sama to forfeit the match if she wanted her stuff back. Saki-sama didn’t fall for it. Misao then went over to the announce table and dressed Sayuri Namba with Misao’s old mask and jacket to trick Saki-sama into thinking Namba was Misao. That also didn’t work. Saki-sama chased Misao up a nearby staircase and Misao taped Saki-sama’s hands to the railings to get her counted out. Saki-sama escaped by slipping her hands out of her gloves and made it back to the ring in time. Misao grabbed a chair but she got into a back and forth moment with the referee over it. That ended when Saki-sama hit the ref with a Big Boot by mistake. Misao then taped Saki-sama’s arms and feet together. Azusa Christie came in with scissors and cut Saki-sama free but Misao took out a spray can and blinded both girls with it. She then woke the ref up, unmasked herself and gave the mask and the spray can to Saki-sama. When the ref regained his bearings he saw that Misao was huddled over unmasked, Saki-sama was holding both the mask and a spray can and Christie was armed with a pair of scissors. He had no choice but to disqualify Saki-sama and award the match to Misao!

The 2nd Round matches made today are Yuu Vs Hyper Misao and Miyu Yamashita Vs Nodoka-oneesan. Yuu said she envied Misao for getting to wrestle Jun Kasai in a Hardcore Match. Misao gets to wrestle in matches that nobody else in Toyko Joshi get to do. so she is experienced in ways that Yuu is not. Yamashita wonders if Nodoka has progressed like Ito has. Yamashita is confident that her own power is enough to beat Nodoka regardless.

Yuki Kamifuku and Azusa Chrisite quizzed each other over who knew Saki-sama better during their match. Christie eventually had enough of Kamifuku’s antics and beat her with the Christie Agape.

Hikari won the Up Up Girls Take A Chance match so she qualifies for the Princess Cup. She is expected to face Marika Kobashi in her 1st Round match on 9th June. Speaking of Kobashi, she was pulled from today’s show because of a left shoulder injury she suffered during training yesterday. She is hoping to recover in time for her Princess Cup match next week.

Because of Kobashi’s injury and Maho Kurone’s absence, the scheduled 6-Woman Tag for Match #6 was turned into a regular tag match.

1. Yuna Manase & Raku defeated Miu & Hinano when Manase pinned Hinano with a Neck Screw (9:31).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka-oneesan and Yuki Kamifuku when Misao pinned Kamifuku with the I Am A Hero (7:04).

6. Yuka Sakazaki, Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita, Marika Kobashi & Rika Tatsumi when Mizuki pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special (14:47).

Rika Tatsumi had to get over her crush on Mizuki so she could wrestle her. The Ito Respect Army gave Marika Kobashi a Double DDT while Yuka Sakazaki wiped out Tatsumi & Miyu Yamashita with the Magical Girls Splash. Mizuki then pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special. After the match Maki Ito told Kobashi to get stronger for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match later this month because Ito doesn’t want to be in a boring match.

The poor referee assigned to the Maho Kurone Vs Su Yung match had his arms bitten by both at the same time. Yung hit Kurone with a rope assisted Pedigree and won with the Panic Switch. The two seemed to have patched up their differences after the match.

Yuki Kamifuku approached NEO Biishiki-gun after Match #4 asking to join the group. She thinks Saki-sama & Azusa Christie look so cool and stylish tgoether that she wants to be a part of it too. Christie was furious at the idea and thought Kamifuku was rude to ask them. Saki-sama however thought it was an interesting idea. Kamifuku isn’t at the level to join yet but she can be their apprentice for now. Kamifuku is happy with the decision. Christie is not.

Shoko Nakajima won her match with an Inverted Rings Of Saturn submission hold she calls the Unmanned Local Train Hold. It’s a Shin Godzilla reference according to the DDT English Update twitter account.

Hyper Misao told Nodoka-oneesan that she owns the patent on saying hello to the audience. Since Nodoka has been greeting the audience ever since her debut in January 2016, Misao worked out that Nodoka owes her 4,536,000 yen in overdue patent fees. However because they are friends, Nodoka only has to pay her 4,000,000 yen. When Yuki Kamifuku got in the way Misao and Nodoka worked together to get rid of her. Nodoka gave Kamifuku the Back Flip. Misao then snuck away with the win by pinning Kamifuku with the I Am A Hero. She was so happy with the win that she dropped the debt Nodoka supposedly owes her.

7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Crash Rabbit Heat (20:04).
*V4 for Miyu Yamashita.

So close yet still so far. For twenty minutes on a brand new ring canvas, Rika Tatsumi chased after the champion Miyu Yamashita and gave it everything she got. Tatsumi trapped Yamashita in the Dragon Sleeper and tried to choke her out again but this time Yamashita kicked her way out of it. Yamashita did a High Kick and an Attitude Adjustment for a nearfall. From that point on Yamashita hit Backspin Kicks and Buzzsaw Kicks to keep Tatsumi down until Tatsumi was too weak to block the Crash Rabbit Heat. A defeated Tatsumi was helped to the back by Maho Kurone while Yamashita celebrated another TOKYO Princess Title defence. Yamashita told everyone she had fun being taken to her limit by Tatsumi. But she still needs energy left over because the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show is only two days away in Itabashi. As long as Yamashita keeps standing in this ring and as long as there is support from everyone, Yamashita will go beyond her limits even more!

Vengeance is sweet for Marika Kobashi! After suffering so much humiliation from NEO Biishiki-gun, Kobashi finally won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from them with Reika Saiki. The intensive training Kobashi had with Saiki leading up to the match paid off. Saiki was at her strongest and at one point suplexed both Saki-saka & Azusa Christie at the same time. Saiki and Saki-sama took each other out with a Shining Wizard from Saiki followed in response with a Big Boot from Saki. Christie tried to hit the Christie Agape on Kobashi but it was blocked. Christie hit a Codebreaker but Kobashi toughened it out a stunned Christie with a Dropkick for the surprise three count! An angry Christie refused to accept the result but Saki-sama calmed her down. Everybody makes mistakes and surely there is something that Christie cherishes more than a championship belt. Christie said there is and it’s Saki-sama. They then left the ring for the new champions to celebrate. Kobashi said she has dreamed of this day for so long. Saiki told her it is now their goal to defend the titles as much as possible. The Ito Respect Army then came out to challenge them. They agreed to a match on the 19th May show in Kitazawa, two days after Kobashi’s birthday. Maki Ito promised to give her the gift of regretful tears when she and Mizuki become the new champions!

A special rule was added to the Falls Count Anywhere Match between Hyper Misao and Jun Kasai. Each wrestler needed to eat an entire bag of chocolate or else their pinfall attempts will not be counted. Misao came up with the idea and convinced Kasai that it counts as a death match. Kasai accepted the rule because he never turns down a death match! When the bell rang both Misao and Kasai rushed through their bag of chocolate until Kasai went in search of water to wash it down. He had to ask the audience for a drink because Misao secretly hid his bottle. When they started wrestling, Kasai put Misao in a Cobra Twist but Misao spat water at him to escape. Misao escaped and Kasai went searching for her. He went to the lobby and found a castle of chairs laid out in front of him. Hyper Misao surprised him by coming out on the Combat Bicycle and she sped towards him. Kasai moved out of the way and Misao crashed into the castle of chairs! Kasai went back to ringside but Misao caught up with him. She snuck up to one of the audience entrances and dove onto Kasai. They returned to the ring where Kasai took out a ladder. He tried to press it onto Misao’s head and shoulders but that backfired when Misao spun around to hit him with the ladder. Misao set a table at ringside but Kasai knocked her down onto it. Kasai then climbed the turnbuckles and splashed Misao through the table! Kasai rolled her back into the ring and went for the pin but the referee refused to count. Kasai never finished his bag of chocolate! He ate the last piece and went for the Reverse Tiger Driver but Misao fought out of it. Misao went for a Cross Body but Kasai caught her with a Lariat. He positioned her in the centre of the ring with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and finally put her away with the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder. After the match Kasai told Misao he thought the chocolate rule was stupid and a horrible idea for a death match. But something is strange. The chocolate he ate during the match was the best he ever tasted. It made him feel alive! That is the magical power of the pro wrestling ring. Together they are pro wrestlers and Kasai now considers Misao a worthy rival.

Dead Of Alive didn’t last long as a team. At first they worked well together, surprising the Miraclians with an attack before the bell. Shoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki fought back with their double team moves but Su Yung cut off their momentum by spitting red Poison Mist at Sakazaki. Maho Kurone went to give Nakajima the Ouroboros but it was blocked. Sakazaki regained her vision and hit the Magical Girl Splash on Kurone before sending Yung out of the ring with a Hurricanrana. Nakajima then got the win with the Diving Senton to Kurone. After the match Kurone and Yung butted heads before leaving in separate directions. Kurone then attacked Yung backstage. Yukinori Matsui tried to break it up but ended up having his arm bitten by Kurone.

All of the support from the fans wasn’t enough for Maki Ito to beat Riho. Ito was stretched and pulled apart by Riho’s moves but the rallying cries of “Who’s the cutest in the world? Ito-chan!” kept her fighting. She survived a Diving Double Stomp but was finally put down with the Somato. Ito was left in the ring with Mizuki to think about another defeat. Ito said she brought in Mizuki to start the Ito Respect Army but she doesn’t think Mizuki respects her. She only teams with her out of kindness. Well no more! Ito is going to disband the Ito Respect Army! Mizuki stopped her. She isn’t teaming her just out of kindness, she really wants to be with Ito. They hugged and agreed to keep the Ito Respect Army going. They got the crowd to call Ito cute again then Ito sang “Ultra Soul” while they left the ring.

Yuki Aino was feeling so emotional over her debut match that she was already wiping tears from her eyes after her entrance. Aino tagged with her older sister Nodoka-oneesan to take on Yuu and Up Up Girls member Hikari. Aino’s big spot in the match was giving Yuu a Side Suplex. However Yuu recovered and pinned Aino with the Ittenyon throw. Aino said the match felt like it came and went in a blink of an eye. She promises to work hard alongside her sister.

Yuna Manase doesn’t want to waste any time coming back from surgery. Her goal is to win the championship and she will do her best to achieve it.

Four new trainees were introduced to the audience at the beginning of the show. Haruna is only 143cm tall so she will be the shortest member of the roster when she debuts. Kyo comes from an open training class held by that DDT. Yumi is a 13 year old junior high school student who is 173cm tall. Kirino wants to be like Shawn Michaels.

She told a stunned Yamashita after the match that she is ready to win the “White Belt”. Tatsumi then said everyone in Tokyo Joshi Pro will put all of their power into making the Korakuen Hall show on 3rd May a success so please come and cheer for everybody!

Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi’s tag team name is Muscle JK Strikers.

Saki-sama congratulated Azusa Christie for providing them with a rosy victory. Feeling blessed by the compliment, Christie told her they had to leave for a helicopter trip back to Paris posthaste. But by being in Osaka today, Saki-sama felt like she was already home.

Today was Priscilla Kelly’s last match on her first tour with Tokyo Joshi. Hyper Misao would like to team with her again in the future.

At one point during Match #2 Mizuki & Raku pretended to sleep on top of Nodoka-oneesan. They called the move the Goodnight Express.

Maki Ito saw Saki from the Actwres girl’Z in the audience at the beginning of the show. She invited Saki into the ring and gave her an Ito Respect Army shirt, making Saki the newest member of the group.

On the journey to next month’s Korakuen Hall show, Miyu Yamashita sent a strong message to Rika Tatsumi by pinning her in the main event. Yamashita cut off the Missile Hips with a High Kick. Tatsumi countered the Attitude Adjustment into a Dragon Sleeper but Yamashita kicked her way out of the move and got the pin with another Attitude Adjustment. Yamashita told Tatsumi that she is strong but asked if she is really ready for their TOKYO Princess Title match. Tatsumi said she is and to prove it she took out a pair of scissors and began cutting off some of her own hair! She cut off more hair during her backstage interview. She said she’s been living with her black hair unchanged for so long that she feels now is the time for change. With this determination Tatsumi says she will definitely win the Princess Title and begin the White Dragon era of Tokyo Joshi Pro!

Marika Kobashi had her second big singles match of the week against her upcoming tag partner Reika Saiki. Like her match with Yamashita yesterday, Kobashi threw everything she had but ultimately fell to her more experienced opponent. Their moment together was interrupted by NEO Biishiki-gun. Kobashi was described as being a bitter young girl by Azusa Christie. She loses to them over and over, changing her tag partner everytime. NEO Biishiki-gun are destined to be a team forever and that makes them different to Kobashi. Saki-sama then said the depth of NEO Biishiki-gun’s bond is much different than the bond Kobashi has with Saiki. She will make Kobashi understand that NEO Biishiki-gun are the most dignified, the most strongest and the most beautiful team around. When they left, Kobashi said that no matter what they say about her, she will change and overcome any special training that is needed.

Shoko Nakajima defeated Priscilla Kelly in a first time meeting. Nakajima is happy to be facing wrestlers from around the world. Not only is it fun but she gets to fight different kinds of monsters. She thinks Kelly is kind of a monster and Su Yung is definitely a monster. Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki will be fighting Yung & Maho Kurone at the 3rd May Korakuen show. Nakajima is a Japanese kaiju and wants to be the strongest monster of them all! Kelly described the match as aggressive and feels it will be a great influence for the rest of her career.

Nodoka-oneesan & Yuki Kamifuku decided to call themselves the Sisters Respect Army for their match against the Ito Respect Army because they both love their sisters.

*V11 for Konosuke Takeshita.

In the main event Konosuke Takeshita defeated Shuji Ishikawa once and for all to continue his dominant KO-D Openweight Title reign. Takeshita took everything that Ishikawa threw at him from the Knee Lifts to the Fire Thunders to the Splash Mountain and survived. He was even put through a table outside the ring with the Fire Thunder from the apron. In return Takeshita fired back with Lariats and German Suplexes until his big rival couldn’t take any more. Takeshita gave him the Cross Arm German Suplex but couldn’t keep his grip for the pin. He was able to reposition himself to give Ishikawa another German Suplex and this time pin him to win.

Takeshita thanked the fans for coming to Sumo Hall. A year and a half ago he defended his title against Ishikawa in this building and lost. Since then the support from the fans kept him going while he grew as a wrestler and a person. Time passes by so quickly but day after day he is still the champion. He loves that DDT is growing while he is becoming stronger. Takeshita then went to climb the turnbuckle and celebrate but he slipped and fell. Everyone laughed including him and the show was over…

…except that wasn’t the ending. When the ring was emptied and the ending music was playing, Shigehiro Irie appeared and climbed into the ring! Irie had disappeared from DDT right at the end of 2017 and was allegedly on another one of his overseas expeditions. This was his first appearance in a DDT ring for 2018. He called for Takeshita to come back out and face him. He congratulated him for the victory then challenged him to a title match. Takeshita said he always knew Irie would come back but is he ready for such a match? Takeshita carried DDT while Irie was gone. Akito entered the stand off and was full of criticism towards Irie. Everyone in DDT has responsibilities and Irie runs away whenever he doesn’t get what he wants. Akito does not accept Irie just coming back and demanding a title match. Irie threatened to shut up Akito and left the ring. Takeshita apologised for letting the argument happen. However his final words were about how he would like to see Akito and Irie settle their differences in the ring.

At last Kazusada Higuchi has taken down HARASHIMA! The KO-D Tag Team Titles changed hands after a back and forth match. Naomichi Marufuji used his strike combos to cut down the opposition as much as he could. HARASHIMA kept Higuchi & Daisuke Sekimoto on edge with the Somato. The final moments of the match were down to HARASHIMA and Higuchi. HARASHIMA hit a Buzzsaw Kick but Higuchi woke up out of it and Headbutted his rival. Higuchi had the win in his sights when he hit the Doctor Bomb but Marufuji broke the pin. Sekimoto German Suplexed Marufuji away and Higuchi finished off HARASHIMA with the Goten to win the titles. Higuchi thanked Sekimoto backstage and said he felt amazing after he finally defeated HARASHIMA. On the other side, Marufuji took the blame for his team’s loss. HARASHIMA said he enjoyed teaming with Marufuji for the last several months. They don’t need the titles to team again but they will stick to messaging each other on LINE for the time being.

The Great Muta entered DDT in an alien looking form to take part in his most bizarre wrestling match since the first time he was in HUSTLE. You know the one I’m talking about. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Ken Ohka and Keisuke Ishii were all there to play second fiddle to Muta and Danshoku Dino locking horns. Dino’s typical moves didn’t work on Muta at first. It wasn’t until Muta accidentally struck his partners with a chair when Dino grabbed him by the crotch again and the action slowly took its effect on the demon. Seeing his chance, Dino set himself up for the Hell Gate on the turnbuckle. Muta was thrown into Dino’s ass but Muta stopped himself and sprayed the Poison Mist into Dino’s ass! However much to everyone’s shock, Dino’s ass sprayed the Mist back into Muta’s face! Ohka hit the Fire Spear on Muta but it wasn’t enough to win. Ohka hit Sasaki & Endo with the Double Fire Spear but Muta was back up giving everyone Dragon Screws. Dino gave Muta and DAMNATION the Lip Lock but Muta stopped him and gave him the Lip Lock right back. Then all three of them spat red Poison Mist at Dino. Endo hit Dino with the Handspring Leg Lariat, Sasaki followed up with a Pedigree and Muta ended the match with the Moonsault. Quite possibly the final Moonsault Muta will ever do. The match was over but Dino had the last word. Dino wants Muta to tell Keiji Muto that this isn’t the end. Dino wants a singles match against either The Great Muta or Keiji Muto!

After intermission Sanshiro Takagi and Hisaya Imabayashi came out for a few big announcements. First, DDT will return to Sumo Hall later this year on 21st October for “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018”. Second, there will be two Sumo Hall shows during the same weekend next February. The shows, nicknamed “2 DAYS Of Hell”, will be held on the 16th and 17th February, 2019. However, only the second show is a DDT show. The first show will be a MUSCLE show hosted by Super Sasadango Machine! The show is called “MUSCLE MANIA 2018 ~I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL 2030 SP~” referencing the humorous return date in the year 2030 for the MUSCLE spin off brand. Sasadango wants the official return show in 2030 to be held in the Tokyo Dome.

The Weapons Rumble was the crazy spectacle it promised to be. Chinsuke Nakamura was accompanied by a violin player for his entrance. He and Michael Nakazawa were attacked while they finished their ring entrance. The first weapon to enter was Soma Takao’s steel basin. He whacked Takagi over the head with it. Next was Nakamura’s surfboard. He swung it down at Takao. Takao tried to block it with his basin but it only made the impact worse. Takagi & Munenori Sawa wanted to do the Golden Shower but they were cut off. The dreaded locker was brought into the match by MAO & Mike Bailey. They trapped Takagi inside and kicked the sides of the locker. The next weapon were the T2HiJoshi girls: Margaret★Owashi, Kazuko Hirata & Gorgeous Matsuko. MAO got rid of them by snapping the back of Matsuko’s bra, knocking her out of the ring. Fuminori Abe knocked out Sawa with a Rabbit Punch which brought out the next weapon, three monks. Abe and the monks prayed for Sawa to wake up and it worked. The next weapon was a special rule. No laughing allowed. Takagi then came out with his Combat Bicycle and cycled over to his opponents to Lariat them. MAO & Bailey countered the bicycle by bringing in a Dramatic Road Roller. MAO and Takagi crashed into each other, wrecking the Roller. A massive barbed wire board was thrown into the ring by Takao & Yuko Miyamoto, taking out everyone else. Isami Kodaka’s weapon was next, the Giga Ladder. Isami struck Miyamoto with the ladder and sent him crashing through the barbed wire board outside the ring. The final weapon was Shinjiro Otani dressed in a black bodysuit! Every laughed, breaking the No Laughing rule from earlier. The punishment was Otani hitting everyone in the ass with a baseball bat. When Otani was finished, he did the Fire Festival Sword pose with the bat. The match reached its end when Bailey gave Nakazawa the Ultima Weapon and MAO got the pin with the Cannonball 450.

As part of the match stipulation, Nakazawa must now take an Anal Explosion. However Nakazawa couldn’t take another explosion after taking so many over the years. He shouted about going back to Thailand and ran away from ringside. This left the others with a problem. An explosion was promised and DDT cannot continue the show without doing it. One by one, different wrestlers volunteered to sacrifice themselves until Takagi offered to do it. Everyone else immediately accepted his request. “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith played over the speakers as Takagi walked up to the stage, stripped down to his underwear and prepared to take the explosion which was 100 times more powerful than he thought when it was prepared. Takagi hesitated to push the button next to him. The tension was so unbearable that Sawa couldn’t take it any more. He approached Takagi and told him that they will take the explosion together. Sawa leapt on top of Takagi, they joined hands and they both pressed the button, causing a tremendous explosion inside Sumo Hall and also their backsides.

Youth beat liquor in the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match. But it almost didn’t end that way. Yukio Sakaguchi hit Kota Umeda with the Right Knee Of God and tried to choke him out with a Sleeper Hold. Umeda was only saved by Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda hitting double Missile Dropkicks to Sakaguchi. The DNA team kept KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi away while Umeda and Sakaguchi slugged it out with a kickfest. Umeda got the upper hand and dropped Sakaguchi with the Umeda Driver for the victory. Sakaguchi handed the titles over to Umeda and told him “Well done”. The new champions bowed when Shuten-dōji left the ring.

Super Sasadango Machine got his wish and successfully defended the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Jiro Kuroshio. Sasadango began with his PowerPoint presentation and promised it wouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes, the same amount of time as Kuroshio’s entrance. Sasadango’s plan was to make Makoto Oishi lay a bear trap around Sumo Hall for Kuroshio to fall into during his long entrance. The first trap was placed on the ring apron. The second trap was planted near a group of women in the audience. They were given custom Kuroshio signs to lure Kuroshio over to the trap. The signs were hand made by Kazusada Higuchi. The third and final trap was placed beneath the balcony next to Kuroshio’s father where two other Sasadango Machines would hold him hostage. This trap was delayed because Oishi and the Machines were looking for him on the wrong side of the arena.

Kuroshio came out and nonchalantly avoided most of the traps. He vaulted over the first one, cartwheeled over the second and easily stepped over the third. The plan looked to be ruined until Sasadango grabbed the trap and placed it into the ring at the right moment. Kuroshio somersaulted over the ropes and landed head first into the trap! Sasadango hit the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock for the quick finish but Kuroshio barely kicked out! Kuroshio retreated outside to get his bearings then sent Sasadango flying outside with a Hurricanrana. He then followed up with a big Moonsault off the top rope to Sasadango and Oishi outside. Sasadango tried to defend himself with the trap but Kuroshio kicked it away. He applied the Ikemen Clutch for the pin but time slowed down to a halt and a video of both wrestlers’ inner monologues played while they fought in slow motion. Ikemen grabbed the trap and threw it out of the ring (still in slow motion). He knocked down Sasadango and was ready to finish him off when another video played. This time it was his father’s inner monologue. It turns out his father is actually an omnipatent god here to offer his son a choice. He can choose either a Gold Trap or a Silver Trap. Kuroshio chose the Gold Trap. Oishi came out and placed the Gold Trap on top of Sasadango. Kuroshio didn’t noticed and Moonsaulted onto the trap! Sasadango got back up and pinned Kuroshio with a School Boy to win the match. Backstage Kuroshio was shocked to learn he is a son of a god. He then snapped back into reality and talked about wanting to challenge Konosuke Takeshita for the KO-D Title if Takeshita wins in the main event.

Maki Ito made the grave mistake of throwing down Yoshiko-sama’s teddy bear in the Tokyo Joshi Pro match. This made Yoshiko-sama so angry that she beat up Ito with the bear. Miyu Yamashita went toe to toe with Yoshiko-sama and Azusa Christie until she and Ito were taken out with a Double Lariat. An outnumbered Mizuki was then picked apart by NEO Biishiki-gun with Saki-sama winning with her finisher. The Two Step Face Kick she uses is now called the Academy Award.

In the battle of the crazy gaijin, Colt Cabana outwitted Joey Ryan. Cabana blocked Ryan’s attempt to stick a lollipop into his mouth by redirecting it into Yukinori Matsui’s mouth. Ryan pulled out more lollipops and every time the lollipop ended up in Matsui’s mouth. Ryan’s plan finally worked when he pulled the lollipop out of Matsui’s mouth and into Cabana’s. Colt grabbed one of the lollipops from Matsui and shoved it into Ryan’s mouth. Cabana then forced Ryan to grab his own crotch and make him flip himself over. Ryan was helpless and tapped out to the Billy Goat’s Curse afterwards. Cabana tried to give a celebratory speech but the microphone cut out from him. When it finally worked he called himself the craziest gaijin in DDT.

An over the top rope rule was added to the Tag Gauntlet at the last minute. It was this addition that led to the eliminations of DEADLIFT LOLITA and Naomi Kingdom. The pace of the match changed when ALL OUT eliminated Antonio Honda & Ethan Page. The last two eliminations were caused by Kazuki Hirata. First he pinned Shunma Katsumata with the Miracle Cradle. LiLiCo & Makoto Oishi caused him some problems but Hirata caught LiLiCo in another Miracle Cradle to win the match. Toru Owashi handed him a pair of Hirata GO! glasses and he got to do his full dance celebration.

The Miraclians beat the Dragon Bombers in the Tokyo Joshi pre-show match. Rika Tatsumi did her best with her Hip Attacks and Maho Kurone tried to eat Syoko Nakajima’s tail. The Apricots hit Kurone with a Double 619 and Yuka Sakazaki landed the Magical Girl Splash for the three count.

Kenshin Chikano & Akira Jo were victorious over Kouki Iwasaki & Shinichiro Tominaga in the second pre-show match. Yep.

The very first match of the day saw the DDT Veteran team defeat Team DNA. Poor little Nobuhiro Shimatani was given the Cherryton Bomb from Cherry, the Midnight Buenos Aires from Hoshitango and the Reverse Splash from Mad Paulie all in a row. The pin was cut off but Paulie just gave Shimatani the Paulie Buster to end it.

DDT unveiled a brand new logo designed by NIGO, the creator of the A Bathing Ape fashion line. The logo resembles a wrestling ring on top of a cube. The intention was to create something that was not your typical pro wrestling logo but still has an element of pro wrestling associated with it.
