DDT’s first music festival put together a mixture of pro wrestling and pop music concerts. There were many, many, many musical acts performing throughout the day so I’m just going to focus on the wrestling portion of the show.

ddtfes-double-german

The main event was Shigehiro Irie’s first match back in DDT since he left for an American excursion back in July. Irie teamed with Konosuke Takeshita to take on HARASHIMA & Yukio Sakaguchi. Irie’s time away wrestling in another country looks to have paid off because he ended up beating one of the headliners for “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2016”! He and Takeshita celebrated by inviting musician Kenji Ohtsuki into the ring. Irie requested for Ohtsuki to make him a new entrance song. Ohtsuki said if Sanshiro Takagi is willing to pay him an exorbitant price, he can get to working on the song.

ddtfes-anywhere

Kota Ibushi also returned to DDT for a big 8-Man Tag Team Falls Count Anywhere match against DAMNATION. This was Ibushi and Daisuke Sasaki’s first match together since they were part of the Golden☆Storm Riders. The match began away from the ring and near the stage. In fact, NωA were on stage ready to perform their new song when the other wrestlers came by and literally kicked them off the stage to continue their match. Ibushi and Mad Paulie squared off by spraying each other with cola. The match then spread over to a nearby swimming pool. Paulie intercepted Takagi’s Combat Bicycle but wound up cycling into the pool. Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo then Suplexed Ibushi in with Gota Ihashi joining when he tried to stop them. Back near the ring Endo Moonsaulted from a handrail while Sasaki and Ibushi fought up to a second floor balcony. Sasaki grabbed Ibushi’s arm, stood on the balcony and did the Jinsei Shinzaki rope walk across the rail! Meanwhile Kazusada Higuchi jumped off the VIP seat area to splash Paulie through a table! Shuji Ishikawa directed the match back to the ring where he fought with Takagi. Eventually Ihashi found himself in a 1 Vs 4 predicament against all of DAMNATION. He had no chance and was given the Splash Mountain followed by the Sky Twister Press to end a chaotic match. Surprisingly it turns out Sasaki and Ibushi still get along. Sasaki said it’s been a year since they last saw each other and he didn’t know what Ibushi was up to until he checked the internet. Meanwhile he conquered DDT with the kingdom of DAMNATION. Sasaki wished Ibushi the best and they shook hands.

ddtfes-rocknroll

Antonio Honda was sidelined with love-sickness and unable to compete. Luckily A.YAZAWA was brought in to replace him. YAZAWA was accompanied by the Bed Inn Girls while Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi had Akira Shimizu in his corner. It was a Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match where everyone had to stop wrestling and dance whenever music was played. The Bed Inn Girls stripped down to their swimsuits to distract Hiroshi but Shimizu’s own music then played. His live singing made Hiroshi concentrate and win the match.

ddtfes-dish

The members of DISH// helped fight off Danshoku Dino with Dropkicks after Match #5. Dino claimed before the show that one of the band would betray the others. The guilty party admitted to this and ran off being chased by the others.

ddtfes-takayama-dance

Throughout the show NωA’s musical performance kept on getting interrupted. Not only did the Falls Count Anywhere match push them away but Yoshihiro Takayama’s entrance cut off their original set too. NωA declared they will finally sing their new song after they beat Takayama’s team. That didn’t happen. Instead Kazuki Hirata placed his HIRATA GO! glasses on Takayama and the giant gave Big Boots to all NωA members on route to victory. However there was a happy ending for NωA. At the very end of the show they came out and got to sing their new song “Going My ωay!! ~You Are Not Alone~”.

ddtfes-manjigatame

The wrestlers in Match #3 were all at the mercy of the Kinnikuman character Stecase King. He was the DJ for the match and would play different theme songs throughout the match. The wrestlers were powerless to the music and found themselves mimicking the wrestlers associated with the famous theme songs. Kikutaro transformed into Stan Hansen and Jumbo Tsuruta while Yoshihiko became a shoot wrestler when the UWF Theme was played. It then did some high flying spots during “Sky High”. The match ended when “Honō no Fighter” came on and everyone on KUDO’s team applied the Manjigatame to their opponents until they submitted.

ddtfes-cherry-matsuno

Gorgeous Matsuno tried to be a leader and told LiLiCo he would teach their opponents “the rigours of professional wrestling”. That was easier said than done. Cherry was in a sour mood and told Guanchulo to kill the “old hag” LiLiCo. Some miscommunication caused Cherry and Guanchulo to hit each other and Matsuno caught Guanchulo in a School Boy to win.

ddtfes-ladybeard-leaves

Toru Owashi, Saki Akai & Nobuhiro Shimatani came out with new looks to fit in with the band Kameleo in the opener. Their opponents came out looking macho because they were accompanied by the Macho 29. Lady Beard had to leave early to go prepare for a live NHK interview so the Macho 29 team had to fight a 2 Vs 3 disadvantage. Sanshiro Takagi eventually came to the rescue to big fanfare but an accidental Lariat to Seiya Morohashi cost them the match.

Sasadango Ill, Kawamura Injured, Shin Ganbare Created

October 26, 2016

My best wishes go out to Super Sasadango Machine for a healthy recovery. He was taken off last Sunday’s Korakuen Hall show with poor health as the reason. A few days later DDT announced that a check up in a hospital found out he is suffering from a mild heart disease. His physician said rest is necessary and he will not be able to wrestle again until further notice. Some of the card changes as the result of this can be seen below.

Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Osamu Namiguchi & X

The folks at Ganbare☆Wrestling had some time to relax after their successful Korakuen Hall debut but now a familiar threat has returned in new clothing. Osamu Namiguchi suddenly announced this week he is creating his own pro wrestling group called Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling (シン・ガンバレ☆プロレス)! The use of Shin (シン) in this name does not mean “new”, it means “thin” as in “Thin Godzilla” from the new kaiju movie. Namiguchi thinks Ganpuro is fake like Hollywood’s Godzilla but Shin Ganpuro will be pure just like “Thin Godzilla”. Shin Ganpuro’s debut will take place on 12th November in Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR at the same time as the normal Ganpuro’s scheduled show. It will only consist of one match and Namiguchi challenged Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to a tag team match. Namiguchi has a mystery partner for the occasion. Ohka accepted and the match will also technically be the main event of the normal Ganpuro show.

Sasadango’s absence has changed a few matches on the Taiwan show. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi takes his place in the Sleep Prevention Death Match. That has the knock on effect of reshuffling other parts of the undercard.

Ken Ohka is feeling flustered after the Korakuen Hall seating chart for this show appeared on screen during Sunday’s DDT show revealing many unsold tickets. Ohka said Amon Tsurumi put that on the screen without his permission. Ohka has promised to retire if the show doesn’t sell out. Not only that but a lot of money was borrowed to put this show together. If that isn’t bad enough their T-shirt design for the occasion hasn’t been completed yet and the DVD team are too busy putting together a Ganbare Vs Tomodachi-gun release so they can’t immediately work on editing the Korakuen show as soon as it ends. Also Yumehito Imanari wants to put his match with Viper on the DVD even though that has nothing to do with the Tomodachi-gun feud.

The 5 Way Match to determine LiLiCo’s fiancee fell apart when Danshoku Dino won the match on behalf of Suguru Miyatake. The problem was in the end Miyatake wanted to marry for love not fame, so he declined to marry LiLiCo. Fearing a public relations disaster, Dino and some of the senior members of DDT are now scrambling to find a new boyfriend for LiLiCo. Whoever they turn out to be, they must fight for LiLiCo’s love.

Yuu thinks Rika Tatsumi has a cute look but that makes her soft. Tatsumi can’t put into words why she thinks she can win the title from Yuu but it isn’t luck.

Two changes to the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster has been announced. First, Marika Kobashi will be taking six months off from wrestling at the end of October. During that time she will finish her junior high school term and then prepare for her high school entrance exam. She is expected to return next spring, either March or April.

Secondly, Yuka Sakazaki will also take a leave of absence from Tokyo Joshi. Due to her recent performances she decided to travel to Magic Country and begin warrior training to become stronger. It is unknown how long this will take. In the meantime Yuka is sending her previously unacknowledged twin sister from Magic Country to take her place in Tokyo Joshi. Yuka’s sister is a masked luchadora named Mil Clown. She cannot speak any human language so she carries a teddy bear called Kumaun to talk on her behalf.
