Muscle Is Revived!

November 21, 2019

MUSCLE “MUSCLE 1”, 27/01/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

The return of Muscle for a special Sumo Hall show back in February was a big success. Nobody was happier about it than Muscle Sakai. Since then he has gained a desire to bring the brand back for a new generation of DDT wrestlers to get involved with. So Muscle is coming back but as a new entity, different from its previous version. The writing has been changed from katakana (マッスル) to hiragana (まっする) and it has a new tagline of “STRONG VARIETY & INTERESTING WRESTLING”. Sakai wants to create something that combines strength with fun. He thinks it would be nice if there was a place where big and strong wrestlers could get the chance to do stuff that is more interesting and stupid than anywhere else.

There are some things that will stay the same. Sakai will be in charge of scripting the show as before and Amon Tsurumi (Hisaya Imabayashi’s alter ego) will return as the general director. They still intend to hold “MUSCLE HOUSE 11” at Budokan Hall in 2030 so those who received tickets at Sakai’s retirement show in 2010 still have that to look forward to. Sakai hopes that DDT will help them make it to that date. No wrestlers have been booked yet. Sakai believes it will be for the good of the entire company if DDT wrestlers participate in more Muscle-like activities.


Astronauts Showdown! Bookstore Pro Wrestling, Delayed Young Drama Cup Final

November 19, 2019

BASARA “BASARA 112 ~BANQUET~”, 26/11/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Daiki Shimomura Vs Ikuto Hidaka
2. Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Gouma Ryu Vs Ryota Nakatsu, Daichi Kazato & Masato Kamino
3. Yasu Urano & Takato Nakano Vs Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa
4. Saikyo Tag League 2019 ~ Astronauts Showdown!: Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura
5. Masahiro Takanashi & Isami Kodaka Vs Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga
6. IRON FIST TAG Titles: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo (c) Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT

The Union MAX Champion and his next challenger are teaming up for a match. But why? It’s all Isami Kodaka’s idea and is based on his history with Masahiro Takanashi. When Kodaka was the KO-D Openweight Champion in 2016, Takanashi was one of his challengers. The two teamed together before their title match. Kodaka remembers how tense it was as a champion to team with his challenger. He wants Takanashi to experience the same feeling. He has brought in what he thinks is the best team they should fight, the Speed Of Sounds!

Over in Big Japan this year’s Saikyo Tag League has been going on. Fuminori Abe entered the tournament with Takuya Nomura. The two regularly team together in BJW as Astronauts. Sadly the team only scored 6 points in their group and could not qualify for the semi-finals. So while the final rounds of the tournament is happening in Korakuen Hall, Abe and Nomura will instead be at BASARA wrestling each other.

DDT “BOOKSTORE PRO WRESTLING AGAIN”, 23/11/2019
Tokyo Inoo Book Store

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Shinya Aoki, Shunma Katsumata & Yukio Naya

In 2008 when Sanshiro Takagi released his first book, DDT held a wrestling match inside of a bookstore. 11 years later to mark the release of Takagi’s next book, DDT is doing it again!

DDT “GOD BLESS DDT 2019”, 24/11/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Danshoku Dieno & Super Sasadango Machine Vs Shinya Aoki & Keigo Nakamura
2. 4 Way Tag Match: Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya
3. After Ultimate Party 2019 Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Jiro Kuroshio Vs Antonio Honda & Miyu Yamashita
4. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 1st Match: Saki Akai Vs Tsukasa Fujimoto
5. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Kazuki Hirata (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs Toru Owashi Vs Makoto Oishi Vs Mizuki Watase Vs Asuka Vs Hiroshi Yamato
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Yuki Iino

Yuki Iino has been bench pressing 200kg as part of his training for the main event. He thought the public contract signing was a public workout so HARASHIMA was there to see his lift. The downside for this kind of training is Iino risks re-injuring his elbow before the show. He swears it is in perfect condition.

Michiaki Nakano from Souken Holdings had a sparring session with Keigo Nakamura but he got beaten pretty easily. At least the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is now part of the Battle Royal he is entering.

Saki Akai has said the reason she is doing a 7 match series is to show her guest opponents how interesting wrestling in DDT can be. Tsukasa Fujimoto is no stranger to DDT so she is going into the match wanting to see if Akai is more than just a gorgeous looking pro wrestler. She is curious to see how Akai wrestles against her because Akai has spent almost her entire wrestling career in a company for male wrestlers.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “WHITE BREATH 2019”, 22/12/2019
Tokyo Art Center White Studio

1. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Kenichiro Arai, Masked Mystery & Shota (c) Vs Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Delayed Young Drama Cup Final: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata

Kazuki Hirata isn’t leaving Ganbare☆Wrestling just yet. He has unfinished business with Keisuke Ishii. A decade ago the generation that Hirata and Ishii belong to had their own rookies tournament called the Young Drama Cup. It only lasted two years. Ishii won the first one in 2009 and reached the final of the second one in 2010. Hirata entered the 2010 tournament but finished last with only a single victory. A lot has changed since then but the history of that tournament now surrounds the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title match.

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 8” Results

November 12, 2019

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 8”, 12/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
132 Fans

1. YaroZ-gun Vs Ikemen-gun All Out Battle!: Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated SAGAT & Naomi Yoshimura when Akito pinned SAGAT with a School Boy (10:43).
2. Reiwa’s 1st YaroZ Cover Girl Decision Match: Cherry defeated Banny Oikawa with the Cherryton Bomb (6:12).
3. FFF (Fundoshi For Future) Match: Ryuichi Sekine & Hoshitango Vs Yuki Iino & Yumehito Imanari ended in a No Contest (9:20).
4. Rounds Handicap Match: Hideki Sekine defeated Gota Ihashi & Keigo Nakamura by TKO when Sekine used a Bearhug on Nakamura (R4 1:49).
5. Sensual Novel Death Match: Naoki Tanizaki Vs Hiroshi Yamato (Special Referee: Danshoku Dieno) was won by Enya (19:33).
6. YaroZ-gun Vs Ikemen-gun All Out Battle!: Ken Ohka, Antonio Honda & Toru Owashi defeated Jiro Kuroshio, Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase when Honda pinned Watase with the Diving Fist Drop (12:48).

See if this sounds familiar. The Ikemen Army kidnapped the guest idol (this time it was Sakurako-san) and the YaroZ Army beat them in the main event to rescue her. The Ikemen refused to let her go but Cherry and Banny Oikawa entered the ring for the save. This time however Jiro Kuroshio and Makoto Oishi fought them off and said the usual YaroZ ending wasn’t going to be repeated. When all hope was lost, Yukio Sakaguchi entered the ring. He isn’t with BOYZ anymore so he is joining YaroZ today! Sakaguchi chased off the Ikemen Army and rescued the women. The YaroZ asked Oikawa and Sakurako-san to hang out with them after the show but they turned them all down. Cherry wanted to hang out though, specifically with Keigo Nakamura. He didn’t want to because he thinks Cherry is as old as his mother. Cherry didn’t care and she dragged Nakamura out of the ring.

The Sensual Novel Death Match had Naoki Tanizaki and Hiroshi Yamato reading erotica to Ryuichi Sekine after every 2 count pin or submission. Danshoku Dieno was there to help determine if Sekine was aroused enough to end the match. Unfortunately no amount of erotic storytelling could excite Sekine. As more stories were told, wrestlers and ringside personnel were getting aroused, even Dieno! Sekine was exiting the ring when an Enya song played over the speakers. That did it! Everyone was too aroused to do anything so the match ended with Enya as the winner.

Sakurako-san was on the show to be the round girl for the Handicap Match. She began fully dressed and took off a piece of clothing after every round. Hideki Sekine destroyed Gota Ihashi & Keigo Nakamura but all of the referees and other wrestlers did what they could to keep the match going and complete the striptease. Yuya Okada eventually had enough and ended the match when Sekine squeezed the life out of Nakamura with a Bearhug. Yukinori Matsui attacked Okada and wrestled him over the decision. Sakurako-san calmed everyone down by stripping down to her bikini. That was when the Ikemen Army kidnapped her.

The Fundoshi match ended in a No Contest when Yuki Iino was so excited from hitting the Spear that he tried to remove his loincloth. Matsui blocked him and called for the bell.
