DDT “GET ALIVE 2020”, 07/09/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
??? Fans – Withheld

6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX Full Scale Battle! Elimination 10-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated HARASHIMA, Naomichi Marufuji, Yuki Ueno, Naomi Yoshimura & Toru Owashi (23:37).
6a. Soma Takao eliminated Naomichi Marufuji by Ring Out (13:48).
6b. Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani and Toru Owashi were all eliminated by Triple Ring Out (15:24).
6c. Daisuke Sasaki eliminated Naomi Yoshimura with a School Boy (17:11).
6d. HARASHIMA eliminated Soma Takao by Ring Out (18:43).
6e. Tetsuya Endo eliminated HARASHIMA by Ring Out (21:13).
6f. Yuki Ueno eliminated Daisuke Sasaki by Ring Out (22:36).
6g. Tetsuya Endo eliminated Yuki Ueno with the Shooting Star Press (23:37).

The main event elimination match had No Tag and Over The Top Rope rules added to it before everyone came out. Naomichi Marufuji was the surprise first elimination when Soma Takao blocked the Shiranui, knocked him onto the apron and then Missile Dropkicked him to the floor. Toru Owashi evened the score in a big way by holding on to both Mad Paulie and Nobuhiro Shimatani in the apron. HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno understood his plan and Dropkicked the group to the floor, bringing the match down to 3 Vs 3. Paulie & Shimatani stuck around however and distracted the referee so Daisuke Sasaki could Low Blow Naomi Yoshimura twice before pinning him. The entire DAMNATION side continued their attack until the full DISASTER BOX team fought back and HARASHIMA eliminated Takao by countering the Gin And Tonic into a Headscissors over the rope and out of the ring. Sasaki hit a Topé Suicida to Ueno while Tetsuya Endo caught HARASHIMA with the Overhead Kick. He lifted him up for the Torture Rack but instead of going for the Bomb like he normally does, he ran across the ring and threw HARASHIMA to the floor instead. DAMNATION’s 2 on 1 advantage backfired when Endo accidentally kicked Sasaki out the ring when he aimed for Ueno. Endo recovered from that mistake and pinned Ueno with the Shooting Star Press to win.

After the match there were two things DAMNATION had to talk about in regards to “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020”. Takao was discussing his tag match against HarashiMarufuji when he received two video messages from CIMA. The first message was CIMA saying how much he is looking forward to the match after it was delayed. Then the second video was CIMA suggesting he and Takao have a warm up match before that. But instead of them teaming together CIMA and Takao will have a match against each other on 27th September!

The other issue needing attention was Endo’s big announcement. Who will he choose to defend the KO-D Openweight Title against at Ota Ward Gymnasium? He chooses Daisuke Sasaki! Endo explained there are two wrestlers left he has to surpass. One is Kenny Omega but that match cannot happen for now. That means he will go with his other influence and that is Sasaki. The challenge was accepted but Sasaki made something clear. DAMNATION has nothing to do with this. It will be Endo Vs Sasaki, nothing else!

Years of friendship was put aside when Chris Brookes defended the DDT UNIVERSAL Title against Drew Parker in a No DQ Match. Parker had Abdullah Kobayashi in his corner while Masahiro Takanashi accompanied Brookes to the ring. The smashed birthday mug that led to all of this was a hint of what was to come. Parker Double Stomped Brookes through a pile of plastic cases from a ladder. He also threw him through a board of plastic forks. Brookes stapled paper to Parker’s cheeks and broke a chair over his head. He then used the Praying Mantis Bomb to put his friend away. The two got along again after the match and Brookes told the fans this won’t be the last time Parker is in DDT. Together they will go after the KO-D Tag Team Titles! They got permission from Hisaya Imabayashi to challenge Nautilus and the match will happen on 27th September.

Team Big Boomers put those young up ‘n comers in their place. Shunma Katsumata had his back targeted because he still had wounds over it from a recent death match he had in Big Japan. There was a small setback when Sanshiro Takagi accidentally kicked Jun Akiyama in the face outside the ring but other than that their teamwork was flawless. Konosuke Takeshita got to fight evenly with Akiyama again but was taken aside and had to watch his rival pin Katsumata with the Exploder Suplex. Makoto Oishi approached Takeshita after the match with a challenge. He wants to do three Junretsu Vs ALL OUT singles matches at the next Korakuen Hall show. They will put down three tug of war ropes hidden from view and whichever wrestlers choose the same rope will wrestle each other. Akito pointed out the possibility of Takeshita and Akiyama choosing the same rope which means their first singles match could happen before “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020”. But this rivalry between the two factions is now more than just Takeshita Vs Akiyama. The rest of ALL OUT also want to get that match against Akiyama.

The pantyhose joke is still funny to Yukio Sakaguchi so Eruption’s challengers had their gameplan ready. That was until Yoshiko refused to wear pantyhose over her head. Danshoku Dieno got her to wear jokey sunglasses instead and that worked just as well on Sakaguchi. Kazusada Higuchi wasn’t in a laughing move though. His goal was to slice off Seigo Tachibana’s little finger with a karate chop! Saki Akai was the only one on the champion team fully focused on the match and that’s because she was in the ring with her career rival Yoshiko again. Dieno took out more masks to make Sakaguchi laugh including a horse head he put over one of the production staff. Sakaguchi finally figured out he could unmask his opponents but Dieno still put the masks on other people to distract him. Sakaguchi got out of the ring only to come back in wearing the horse head himself. Dieno pulled it off to reveal Sakaguchi was wearing pantyhose on his head underneath! Dieno burst into laughter allowing Sakaguchi to put him in a Sleeper Hold. He then rolled him into a Gaydo Clutch to get the three count.

Normally in pro wrestling rookies get yelled at because they are not taking things seriously. In DDT rookies get yelled at when they do take things seriously! Keigo Nakamura got a grilling from Super Sasadango Machine, Antonio Honda and Kazuki Hirata because all he was doing in the match was wrestling. He didn’t dance, tell rude jokes or even do a PowerPoint presentation. Why even be in DDT if you don’t want to do stuff like this? To show Nakamura what he is missing, the others came up with a creative musical called TOKYO Gon. Honda sang “TOKYO GO!” with his own rude lyrics and Hirata danced to them. Nakamura got into it and joined in until Sasadango & Honda attacked Hirata & Nakamura with Bionic Elbows. Sasadango gave Nakamura the Verdict and Honda pinned him with the Diving Fist Drop while still singing “TOKYO GO!”

Junretsu came close to winning in the opener but they are still an unpolished product when Akiyama isn’t in the match. Oishi wiped out Yukio Naya with a Plancha. Mizuki Watase used a Wrist Clutch DDT and got a nearfall out of it. But Akito countered the Back Drop into an Anklelock. He turned it into the Goliath Birdeater submission and that made Watase give up.

The D-Ou Grand Prix 2021 will take place between 22nd November and 27th December. Three of the shows from the tournament will be broadcast on DDT TV SHOW when the series comes back on WRESTLE UNIVERSE.


DDT “TAISHO DRAMATIC ROMANTAN 2020” Results

September 5, 2020

DDT “TAISHO DRAMATIC ROMANTAN 2020”, 05/09/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall
??? Fans – Withheld

1. Yukio Naya & Keigo Nakamura defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Naya pinned Hirata with a Lariat (0:09).
1a. Rematch: Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Yukio Naya & Keigo Nakamura when Hirata pinned Nakamura with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (9:32).
2. 3 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Akito and Antonio Honda when Takao pinned Honda with a School Boy (9:00).
3. Eruption Vs Junretsu!: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani when Higuchi submitted Okatani with the Torture Canadian Backbreaker (11:03).
4. Taisho Ward Specialty! Jun To Ai Special Tag Match: Chris Brookes & Maku Donaruto Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Danshoku Dieno ended in a No Contest (11:56).
5. Junretsu Vs ALL OUT!: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Oishi submitted Katsumata with the Fujiyama Knee Lock (11:58).
6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX: HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Ueno pinned Paulie with the BME (16:22).

It’s been a while since Yuki Ueno got to wrestle in his hometown of Osaka again, eight months to be exact. In that time he has gotten stronger and became the KO-D Tag Team Champion with Naomi Yoshimura. Since Ueno won the fall in the main event, HARASHIMA gave him the spot in closing out the show. He said the next time he will wrestle in Osaka will be for Yukinori Matsui’s produce show next month.

Jun Akiyama heard that Keiko Takeshita was in attendance today. He greeted her before the show and joked he would tease her a little bit by bullying her son in the ring. Konosuke Takeshita spent too much time fighting Akiyama during the match. He couldn’t make it to the ring in time to save Shunma Katsumata from submitting to Makoto Oishi. They will face off in another tag at Korakuen Hall this Monday before facing off again in Nagoya two weeks later. All of this is preparation for their big singles match at “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020”.

From the beginning Chris Brookes didn’t want to team with Maku Donaruto. He walked out on the match when he got fed up with getting involved in Donaruto’s lewd spots. Sanshiro Takagi tried to keep the match going but he ran off when the back of his tights were pulled down. Danshoku Dieno had Donaruto beaten with the Danshoku Driver when Brookes returned dressed like Donaruto! Takagi also came back wearing Donaruto gear too. The three Donarutos attacked Daisuke Kiso forcing the match to be called off.

Yukio Naya immediately pinned Kazuki Hirata in the opening match. Hirata got a rematch confirmed because he didn’t want the first DDT show in 8 months to start this way. Naya pulled out the penlights and danced with them to counter Hirata. However he got too focused on dancing while Hirata pinned Keigo Nakamura.

Ueno & HUB Vs Takeshita & Billy Ken Kid along with Masato Tanaka & Shigehiro Irie Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi were both announced for Matsui’s show on 18th October.


DDT “ATSUSHI ONITA IMMEDIATELY RETIRE IF YOU LOSE SP CURRENT BLAST ON THE STREET” Results

August 27, 2020

DDT “DDT LIVE! ~SAYONARA TOSHIMAEN~ ATSUSHI ONITA IMMEDIATELY RETIRE IF YOU LOSE SP CURRENT BLAST ON THE STREET”, 27/08/2020
Tokyo Toshimaen
128,500 ABEMA Viewers

1. Jiro Kuroshio defeated Shunma Katsumata by submission when Katsumata was too scared to fall into the pond (14:36).
2. Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai defeated Danshoku Dieno, Yukio Naya & Kazuki Hirata when Akai pinned Dieno, Naya & Hirata with a Diving Body Attack from the Yumbo (9:45).
3. Akito, Mizuki Watase & An Chamu (w/ Otake) defeated Super Sasadango Machine, Keigo Nakamura & Yuna Manase (w/ Kuro-chan) when Chamu pinned Akamura with a Running Double Knee Attack from poolside (10:52).
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Sasaki pinned Ueno with a Diving Elbow Drop from a vending machine (16:18).
5. Retirement Match If Onita Loses ~ Street Current Blast 3 Vs 4 Handciap Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi & Chris Brookes defeated Shinya Aoki, Konosuke Takeshita, Caol Uno & Kuro-chan when Onita pinned Kuro-chan with a Current Blast Swing (15:44).

DDT bid the Toshimaen theme park farewell by putting Atsushi Onita’s career on the line in a Current Blast Death Match. It was supposed to be 3 Vs 3 but Onita wanted Kuro-chan to get involved. He refused, only staying around to serve as witness to the match. It began with a full brawl until they split off. Onita and Shinya Aoki fought over to a Current Blast Baseball Bat. Aoki swung the bat but Chris Brookes blocked it with a Stop sign and no explosion went off. Onita had to hit Caol Uno with the bat twice for it to explode. Kuro-chan ran in to break pins so Sanshiro Takagi forced him to enter the match on Aoki’s team. Onita and Aoki fought over to a staging area where the experimental Blast Rocket was aimed. Konosuke Takeshita hesitated setting the rocket off so Kuro-chan fired it instead! Aoki crawled on top of Onita for the pin but Takagi broke it up. Takeshita shouted out “Thank you Toshimaen for 94 years of hard work!” before putting Brookes through a table with a Diving Body Press. Kuro-chan stomped on Onita until Onita stood back up, grabbed the Blast Bat and hit Kuro-chan with it. Kuro-chan went down and Onita pinned him to win and avoid retirement for the 7th(?) time. Onita demanded a singles match with Kuro-chan afterwards.

DAMNATION made their entrances on slow moving animal vehicles. Daisuke Sasaki was clad in Toshimaen shirts and towels, blaming his opponents for closing the theme park down. When DISASTER BOX had the upper hand in the match, Sasaki pleaded to go on one of the rides one last time. HARASHIMA accepted his request and all of the wrestlers went on the Magic ride. When it ended they all fought each other again except for Mad Paulie and Naomi Yoshimura. They had difficulty getting on and off the ride because of their size. HARASHIMA was thrown onto the lion vehicle and very slowly went away. Sasaki sprayed Yuki Ueno with a fire extinguisher. Tetsuya Endo pinned Ueno down between chairs and a ladder while Sasaki climbed a vending machine. He shouted “Toshimaen forever!” and landed a Diving Elbow Drop onto Ueno for the finish. He really doesn’t want the place to close down.

One of the matches took place in the poolside area. Yuna Manase and An Chamu got their teams to lift them up for a game of horseback riding. It got so rough it turned into a wrestling match. Wrestlers suplexed each other into the pool. Kuro-chan kept trying to lick Manase’s knee so they threw him onto a float and pushed him across the pool away from everyone else. Mizuki Watase unmasked Super Sasadango Machine and pushed his face under the water. Chamu stripped off Manase’s top and threw it into the pool. Manase jumped in afterwards to retrieve it. Akito gave Keigo Nakamura an Avalanche Brainbuster into the pool from the observation platform. Chamu ran along poolside and hit a Double Knee Attack onto Nakamura on a floating ring. She pinned him on the water’s surface.

Over at the stage, Danshoku Dieno came up with some very lewd ideas to use on Eruption. He called in samba dancers to come in while he did the Brazilian Nightmare to Saki Akai. “TOKYO GO!” then played and Kazuki Hirata made a grand entrance on the stage. That ended when Yukio Sakaguchi drove in on a jumbo digger and attacked Hirata with it. Kazusada Higuchi also grabbed onto the digger’s shovel to swing around and knock over his opponents. Dieno found a large bubble blower on the stage and unleashed the “Anal Soap Samba”, soaking everyone in foam while the samba dancers performed on stage. Akai climbed the digger and dove onto everyone below, pinning the entire opposing team to win.

Jiro Kuroshio and Shunma Katsumata kept trying to throw each other into any pool of water they could find. Kuroshio was about to succeed pushing his opponent over a fence when Katsumata verbally gave up. He can’t swim so he would rather lose the match. Kuroshio pushed him into the water anyway.

The comedian Kuro-chan has been appointed as the witness for the main event. He joined Sanshiro Takagi, Shinya Aoki and Caol Uno in Chiba for an outdoor demonstration of a Blast Rocket that will be used on the show. The Rocket was created by Atsushi Onita for a death match he did in 2016 but it was so dangerous he never used it since. Until now! The rocket was fired at a watermelon with Kurochan’s picture on it and created a large explosion. The watermelon was not destroyed but a large hole was left in it from the blast. The wrestlers all think it’s amazing but Kurochan is terrified. Even more so when Onita suggested that Kurochan be placed inside a cage at ringside so he won’t run away.

An Chamu is a gravure idol from Shinshu Girls Pro Wrestling. She has two years experience and was trained by Emi Sakura.

After some messaging back and forth, Atsushi Onita and NOSAWA Rongai agreed to make the main event a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match. This is going to be odd because at one point they promised no crowd brawling on the show because the Coronavirus limitations wouldn’t let them do it. The entire point of a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match is wrestlers charging through the crowd down to the ring when the match begins!

DDT “BON DEMONE, ATASHA KAMISAMADA YO 2020” Results

August 15, 2020

DDT “BON DEMONE, ATASHA KAMISAMADA YO 2020”, 15/08/2020
Tokyo Kanda Myojin Hall
??? Fans

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) defeated MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba when Ueno pinned Toba with the WR (18:50).
*V6 for Nautilus.

Nothing’s gonna stop the Nautilus train, not even the past! There was a point in DDT’s history when The Suicide Boyz were the glue that held the tag team division together. Nautilus beating them today for their 6th KO-D Tag Team Titles defence is a scalp they can claim with pride. Naomi Yoshimura kept MIKAMI at bay while Yuki Ueno got into a scrap with Tanomusaku Toba. Ueno took Toba’s best shot and fired back before hitting the WR to win. It was a hard shot though. Ueno admitted after the match he was still feeling light headed from one of the punches. Yoshimura said Nautilus will continue to build excitement in DDT.

Kazusada Higuchi is ready for Tetsuya Endo at the King Of DDT semi finals. Today’s preview match saw Higuchi Choke Slam Endo on top of Mad Paulie then followed up with a Diving Elbow onto Paulie. Yukio Sakaguchi nailed Paulie with the God’s Right Knee to the back of the head. What little fight Paulie had left was knocked out of him with the Buchikamashi sumo charge. Higuchi said he didn’t release his full power today too. Endo is confident he still knows how to handle Higuchi. You’ll see the real fight out of him at the semi final.

With Yuki Iino missing from the show due to a small back injury, Konosuke Takeshita led ALL OUT in the Haka in tribute to him at points in the match. T-Hawk taunted Akito after winning the match for #DAMNHEARTS. Akito responded that he isn’t stupid enough to show his hand before the semi final. Their final battle will be at Korakuen Hall. T-Hawk shrugged him off and said he will win the King Of DDT for both #DAMNHEARTS and #STRONGHEARTS.

Yukio Naya had Makoto Oishi held in a Samoan Drop position when Chris Brookes Super Kicked him. That caused Oishi to inadvertently roll Naya over into a Crucifix Pin and win the match.

Danshoku Dieno is still upset he cannot physically interact with the crowd during his entrance. He got with Kazuki Hirata while Hirata danced until Nobuhiro Shimatani knocked Hirata down with a Lariat. Dieno got rid of Shimatani with the Lip Lock and then pinned Hirata. This all happened before Toru Owashi could do anything so everyone agreed to an immediate tag team rematch.

The rookies wore their own black T-shirts that said “Wakazo” on them with “OK Boomer” underneath. Keigo Nakamura hates old fashioned companies and Hideki Okatani promised to do his best and kill old fashioned people. Sanshiro Takagi was offended by the shirts and said he was young. He and Okatani then argued about being old and young. Jun Akiyama beat up Nakamura and pinned him with the Exploder. He promised to stand on the front line with Takagi and fight together as Team Big Boomers. Takagi will do the same until their T-shirt sells out.

If that’s not enough there’s also a Coronavirus scare causing BOYZ to change their show too. Shiori Asahi and Hiroshi Yamato wrestled on a recent 2AW show. Kotaro Yoshino was on that show and tested positive for COVID-19 afterwards. Asahi & Yamato both agreed to cancel their appearances at the BOYZ show because of this. Jun Masaoka has been brought in to take Asahi’s place in the main event. Yamato’s match has been changed from a tag bout to a 3 Way.

Here’s something I learned about Atsushi Onita. He has a side business making coffee that involves importing coffee beans from Laos. The farm where he gets these beans from uses a robot called Mecha Pandita to cultivate the beans. When Onita found out about this robot he came up with an idea. He will bring this machine to Japan and modify it into a pro wrestling robot! Mecha Pandita is currently doing its job in the mountains of Kanzaki City and will be ready for Shunma Katsumata to fight soon.

DDT “DDT LIVE! ~SAYONARA TOSHIMAEN~ ATSUSHI ONITA IMMEDIATELY RETIRE IF YOU LOSE SP CURRENT BLAST ON THE STREET”, 27/08/2020
Tokyo Toshimaen

1. Street Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi & Chris Brookes Vs Shinya Aoki, Caol Uno & Konosuke Takeshita

Over the years, the Toshimaen theme park in Nerima, Tokyo was a venue DDT visited several times for Street Wrestling matches. Sadly, Toshimaen will close down at the end of this month after 94 years in business. When Sanshiro Takagi heard the news he asked to wrestle there one last time. They will literally send the place out with a bang because DDT is putting together a Current Blast Death Match!

Shinya Aoki is in the match because he used to live in Nerima and would visit Toshimaen many times. He was recently reminded of the place when his ex-wife sent him an angry message. He wants to do Team Aoki Vs Team Onita and if Onita loses, he has to retire for the 8th time in his career. Onita admitted he will continue wrestling after his 8th, 9th and 10th retirements so they need to include something else to fight over. Aoki suggested Takagi and CyberFight put 50 million yen on the line. Takagi doesn’t know where the money will come from but he agreed to it so the match can go ahead. Takagi & Onita will have Chris Brookes on their team. Aoki is bringing in Konosuke Takeshita and MMA fighter Caol Uno! Aoki said that Uno is frightened of wrestling in a Current Blast Death Match but he still has the skills necessary to win.

The press conference for the match was held out in Toshimaen but quickly fell apart when a torrential rainstorm soaked everybody.

14. King Of DDT 2020 – Round 1H: Tetsuya Endo Vs Akito

Some of the wrestlers have commented on the King Of DDT tournament in the lead up to Round 1. Yukio Sakaguchi simply said “we’ll do it this Summer.” Shunma Katsumata feels like there is a big wave coming for him. Soma Takao is looking forward to facing Minoru Tanaka and also wants to take on his allies in DAMNHEARTS on route to becoming a champion in his hometown. Tanaka believes he will win and beat DDT’s best without any reservations. HARASHIMA is going to blow the cobwebs away in this blazingly hot summer tournament. Mad Paulie’s grunts were translated into “Hey, Mad Paulie! Kill HARASHIMA! I’m going to win! Cheer for me!” Kazusada Higuchi will fight for himself, win or lose. Mizuki Watase would rather have a discussion with Higuchi instead of fighting him. Yukio Naya wants to win the first tournament he enters. El Lindaman can’t do the math on how many wrestlers are in this thing so he will just have to deal with them one by one. Naomi Yoshimura’s short term goal is to beat Konosuke Takeshita. Last year Takeshita broke his nose in the semi-final. He doesn’t like the fact he looks like a different person in his photos after he won the final. He wants to win with a more dignified looking face so everyone will recognise him.

DDT “BON DEMONE, ATASHA KAMISAMADA YO 2020”, 15/08/2020

1. Team Big Old Men Vs Young Dramatics: Jun Akiyama & Sanshiro Takagi Vs Keigo Nakamura & Hideki Okatani
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba

Past versus present and old versus young are the themes for the two matches listed above. The Suicide Boyz made their return to DDT and got a team win over Yuki Ueno. They now get a KO-D Tag Team Titles shot because of it. Both MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba have held the titles multiple times but only twice together.

Meanwhile Jun Akiyama & Sanshiro Takagi have become kindred spirits because of their similar age and agreed to team together to put the young ones in their place. Keigo Nakamura has stubbornly tried to match up with Akiyama while Hideki Okatani has been soaking all of his coach’s teachings like a sponge.

BAKUHA KOSHIEN “STREET FIGHT CLUB”, 25/08/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. STREET FIGHT CLUB Special Match ~Royal Traditions Match~: Jun Akiyama Vs Yukio Naya

Earlier in the week Yukio Naya was getting criticisms from Jun Akiyama for not wrestling like a man his size should. Atsushi Onita wants to see Akiyama prove his point in the ring so he made a request to book Akiyama Vs Naya on his own show. Takagi told him to go ahead. Naya is eager to learn directly from Akiyama this way.

Chris Brookes and Drew Parker got to wrestle each other in a Falls Count Anywhere tag match at Gake no Fuchi Joshi last weekend. Parker’s team won but Brookes wants to get his win back in a similar match. Their DDT UNIVERSAL Title match is now No DQ. This might be a mistake by the champion because the only times Parker has beaten him in their careers were in death matches.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2020 DAY 1”, 30/07/2020
Shinjuku FACE
192 Fans – Super No Vacancy

2. HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes defeated Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Brookes pinned Paulie with a School Boy (10:59).
3. Super Sasadango Machine Produce Match – Hell In A Blue Sheet Timed Blast! Kaidan Shin Numabukuro Death Match: Muscle Sakai, Danshoku Dieno & Antonio Honda Vs Akito, Yumehito Imanari & Shota ended when Honda used the Golden Tailed Kitsune on Hisanoyuki Imabayashi (16:51).
4. Jun Akiyama & Hideki Okatani defeated Naomi Yoshimura & Keigo Nakamura when Okatani pinned Nakamura with the Double Arm Suplex (10:38).
5. Saki Akai Produce Match – NEO Biishiki-gun New Member Open Audition: Sakisama, Yukio Saint Laurent & Jiroko “Kawaii” Kuroshio defeated Kazuko Hirata, Margaret☆Owashi, Francoise☆Ihashi, Generic Martha & Kazuko Higuchi when Laurent submitted Hirata with the YSL (7:17).
6. Konosuke Takeshita Produce Match – DDT Sauna Club Vs DDT Legend Army!: Sanshiro Takagi, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Ueno when Toba pinned Ueno with the Backhand Blow (16:32).

DDT was met with a blast from the past at the end of Beer Garden-Like Day 1. Sanshiro Takagi reunited with former alumni MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba to defeat the DDT Sauna Club. Takagi called for the match to go Lucha style but his attempt at a Flying Cross Chop failed against Yuki Ueno. He was still eager to fight the younger wrestlers, particularly egging on Konosuke Takeshita to hit him harder. Meanwhile The Suicide Boyz turned back the clock and were too much for the Sauna Club to handle. MIKAMI hit his Swanton Bomb on Ueno then wiped out Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata with a Tornillo dive. Toba then took the stage and pinned Ueno with the Backhand Blow.

After the match MIKAMI said he doesn’t know how long it’s been since the DDT Legend Army fought together. Takagi muttered that he and Toba don’t even follow him on Twitter. MIKAMI was aware Ueno holds a title but he didn’t know which. When he was told it’s the KO-D Tag Team Titles. This led to The Suicide Boyz challenging Nautilus to a title match. They agreed to have the match on 15th August. When they left, the Sauna Club regrouped. Takeshita was disappointed to lose his own Produce Match. He underestimated Toba’s Punch, Takagi’s Stunner and MIKAMI’s School Boy. Not even MAO standing around at ringside with lignum vitae leaves helped them. He cheered up when he realised it is only the first day of these Beer Garden replacement shows. “The hotter the sauna, the better. The hotter the match, the better. 1, 2, Sauna!”

The NEO Biishiki-gun unit was looking for new members so Sakisama held an audition. How did she get from Paris to Tokyo under the current global situation? I dunno, the Channel Tunnel? Anyway, one by one the contestants were judged by Sakisama & Yukio Saint Laurent. First was Generic Martha. She kind of looked like Martha but she wasn’t Martha, so pass. Next was the duo of Margaret☆Owashi and Francoise☆Ihashi. They danced to “Lonely Magical Fish” by Wink. It only left Sakisama & Laurent confused. Pirako was next and she got a nod from Laurent. Last was Kazuko Higuchi who was very shy. Sakisama was left even more confused by the end. There were 50,000 applicants and these were the best five out of all of them? No matter, the 5 Way Match to decide who joins NEO Biishiki-gun would go ahead. That is until Pirako interrupted her. She was actually Kazuko Hirata in disguise! She is here to lead T2HiJoshi and destroy NEO Biishiki-gun! She had one more surprise too. “HELLO” started playing and out came Jiroko “Kawaii” Kuroshio! She took a long time doing her entrance but her beauty grabbed Sakisama’s attention. Would she like to join NEO Biishiki-gun? Sure! The match turned into a 3 Vs 5 Handicap and NEO Biishiki-gun were victorious in the end. Afterwards Kuroshio has a confession to make. She wasn’t here for the audition. She was here to find her separated sister, Kazuki Higuchi! The two hugged while Laurent snuck up behind Higuchi and knocked her out with a syringe.

Jun Akiyama got to tussle with Naomi Yoshimura in their tag match. He approves of how energetic Yoshimura is. Hideki Okatani got the pin on Keigo Nakamura but that didn’t stop Nakamura from getting face to face with Akiyama after the match. Backstage Nakamura said he is losing momentum because he is Okatani’s senior but is losing to him more and more.

The most dangerous match in pro wrestling was used in DDT for the first time. Hell In A Blue Sheet! It’s so dangerous that nobody can see what happens under that blue sheet. A rule was added where if the match lasted five minutes then the sheet would be lifted and storyteller Hisanoyuki Imabayashi would tell his annual ghost story. Akito was proudly introduced as a CyberFight Vice President. He exchanged business cards with Muscle Sakai during the match. Shota brought in a microphone to call what was happening under the sheet. Whatever happened under there brought all the wrestlers to tears. The match reached the time limit and Imabayashi began his story. He pointed at every wrestler one by one, making them faint out of fright. Antonio Honda stopped him to point out he was making the Gongitsune hand sign. He figured out it is the Golden Tailed Kitsune! Honda convinced the spirit to use him as his new host and he used his new power to defeat Imabayashi! And that was how Antonio Honda learned the Gongitsune.

DAMNATION keep getting new signboards and they keep getting broken over heads. Soma Takao aimed for Chris Brookes but he ducked and Mad Paulie got hit instead. Brookes rolled over Paulie while HARASHIMA threw Takao out.

The Chanko KISS match is where tags only count when one wrestler kisses his tag partner in the crotch. Yukio Naya did not want to do that with Yuki Iino so the 3 Way Tag was turned into a 6-Man Tag with them on opposite sides.

6. Tetsuya Endo Produce Hardcore Tag Match – DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HEAVEN’S DOOR 2020”, 22/08/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Ganpro Vs FREEDOMS All Out Battle!: Washi Sakurai Vs Tomoya Hirata
2. First Single! Toyama’s Strongest Decisive Match!: Ken Ohka Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
3. 6 Men And Women Summer Story! Special Mixed 3 Way Tag Match: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase Vs Shota & HARUKAZE
4. Teacher & Student Tag Vs Aikata Tag: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Hagane Shinno (c) Vs Asuka

These might be the final Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title defence if Hagane Shinno gets his way. The new champion is in the twilight of his wrestling career and believes the title no longer serves its use. His peak was beating Kota Ibushi for the belt which means it should only be defended against a wrestler on the same level. Asuka is getting the title match because it was already promised to her when Keisuke Ishii was the champion. If Asuka can beat Shinno and achieve her goal of becoming the youngest ever Indy Jr. Champion, then Shinno will be convinced she can become as big of a superstar as Ibushi.

Yuna Manase is now a full time member of Ganbare☆Wrestling! Two weeks ago she received an invite from Yumehito Imanari to wrestle for them on a regular basis. She couldn’t give an answer then because she had not finished her commitment to Tokyo Joshi Pro. But when she appeared at last Sunday’s show she announced she wants to do more with the group and be part of the Ganpro family.
