Konosuke Takeshita and HARASHIMA get to prepare for their Sumo Hall main event while a rivalry between Yuki Iino and Naomi Yoshimura begins to grow. Maybe something will spark off between Shunma Katsumata and Yuki Ueno too.

7. Road To Ultimate Party 2019! Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Ken Ohka & Shoko Nakajima Vs HARASHIMA, Isami Kodaka & Yuka Sakazaki

Cram everything in there!

At the end of Chris Brookes’s first tour with DDT he formed a tag team with Masahiro Takanashi called Calamari Drunken Kings. With Brookes coming in for a new tour the team are immediately setting their sights on the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Another new team have also wanted a title shot. That team is the Nautilus duo of Ueno & Yoshimura. The solution is a No. 1 Contenders match! The winners get whatever remains of the 4 Way Tag Title match from Sumo Hall.

There is unfinished business between Jiro Kuroshio and Tetsuya Endo. Part of the reason Kuroshio lost the DDT Extreme Title to HARASHIMA was because he focused too much on Endo in the 3 Way Match. Kuroshio then pinned Endo at last weekend’s show in Sapporo. Endo said that result doesn’t matter because it was in a tag match. They will get a singles match to settle the matter.

This indoor DDT show took place next to a boat racing event. Konosuke Takeshita compared pro wrestling to boat racing. He described boat racing as martial arts on water and it is perfectly compatible with pro wrestling. He then purchased a betting slip for the next race but didn’t win anything.

A safety sign was placed in one side of the room saying “If You Are In This Zone, There Is A Possibility That Danshoku Dino Will Kiss You”. Dino, of course, ran over to that side during his entrance searching for men to kiss.

He describes Pandita as a creature coming from a wonderful bloodline that stretches back 32 years. But Imanari’s father recently established a new spiritual venture called Rainbow House to heal people’s souls. Imanari finds it a bit odd. He has since visited his father and it felt to him like he was a complete stranger. However he was also impressed by his dad’s newly found vitality. So Imanari wants to spread his dad’s message of posterity and prove how strong the family bloodline is against others. Chikara and Pandita are just the kind of opponents he was looking for.
