GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021” Results

June 27, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021”, 27/06/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
110 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Semi Final: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga when Ishii pinned Tominaga with a Rolling Cradle (7:31).
2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Semi Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase when Katsumura submitted Imanari with a Triangle Choke (11:38).
3. Jacket Match: Ken Ohka defeated Cherry by Disqualification when Cherry hung Ohka with a belt (7:56).
4. Hardcore 4 Way Match: Miss Mongol defeated Shota, Miyako Matsumoto and Itsuki Aoki when Mongol pinned Matsumoto with a Lariat (0:34).
4a. Rematch: Miss Mongol defeated Shota, Miyako Matsumoto and Itsuki Aoki when Mongol pinned Shota with a Lariat (15:56).
5. Special Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shinjiro Otani & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Iwasaki submitted Shimatani with the Texas Clover Hold (23:00).
6. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE when Haruhi pinned HARUKAZE with the Diving Foot Stomp (18:25).

After all the rumours going around backstage, the reward for winning the Mixed Tag Tournament is not a new championship or prize money. Instead, Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi will get a match on 11th July against an “super super special” tag team that will be revealed tomorrow. Katsumura said he wants THE HALFEE to wait for Shu Sakurai’s return from injury so all three of them can fight for a championship together again. He also said only 13% of fans thought they were going to win the tournament in a poll so the other 83% should buy their T-shirt as an apology. Haruhi said she is still proud to create history as the first Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament winner. She wants to make more history and be seen on equal footing to the men.

As a result of their defeat, Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE will no longer team together. They did this before when they lost the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles with Kouki Iwasaki. HARUKAZE doesn’t want to break up the team because she finally got a tag partner. Ishii told her that today’s regrets will make her stronger and they will meet again some day.

Shinjiro Otani is quickly becoming a wanted man in Ganpro. He has both Shigehiro Irie and Kouki Iwasaki demanding singles matches against him. Irie wants it to be at the Fire Festival which caused Otani to give him the Fire Festival sword pose. When they Irie & Iwasaki left, Otani praised Nobuhiro Shimatani for a good performance. Otani later spoke good things about Ganpro for how exciting the card and the wrestlers were today. He is sure there are some people who are annoyed that he’s there but he is just as much appearing on these shows to improve himself as he is to improve his opponents.

The Hardcore 4 Way Match ended quickly when Miyako Matsumoto attacked everyone with a barbed wire bat until Miss Mongol knocked her down with a Lariat and pinned her. Matsumoto then successfully appealed for the match to restart. The second match was a lot more chaotic. Itsuki Aoki put Shota through a table. Matsumoto was wheeled into a stack of chairs. She was also thrown off the top of a ladder onto Ken Ohka outside the ring. Mongol got the win with the Lariat again but this time it was to Shota for the three count.

The Jacket Match took on a new meaning when Ohka entered the ring wearing a suit and tie. Cherry, who was dressed in her judo outfit got angry and turned the bout into even more of a grudge match. As the match got more heated, both Ohka and Cherry removed their jackets to reveal they were wearing tanktops underneath. Cherry then used her blue belt to choke Ohka and hang him over the ropes. The bell rang but it was then announced that Cherry was disqualified. Ohka asked if Cherry was angry because they lost in the 1st Round of the Mixed Tag Tournament. He explained that if Katsumura & Haruhi go on to win the tournament then that means Ohka & Cherry are 2nd place by default (I guess the logic is from losing to the eventual champions). Cherry believed him and agreed to support Katsumura & Haruhi.

Yumehito Imanari isn’t letting today’s semi-final loss get him down. His MMA namesake Masakazu Imanari also lost today at the RIZIN show. He believes both of them are making “Imanari” the new trend in mixed martial arts!

It looks like The Weekend Lovers are hitting a rough patch. Shinichiro Tominaga told Asuka that when the weekend is over you should look forward to the next weekend. Asuka glared at him and left without saying a word.

Yuna Manase stormed the ring after the match angry at the fact that there is not another Ganbare☆Joshi show until August. She begged Ohka to let her put together a Ganjo show next month. He promised her she can do it.

5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE Vs Yuu Yamagata & Moeka Haruhi

Yesterday Shinjiro Otani confirmed he will regularly participate in Ganbare☆Pro events beginning on 27th June. Otani’s priority is still with ZERO1 but when his schedule allows it, he will wrestle in Ganpro too. At first Otani didn’t understand why his Hot Japan tag team partner Yumehito Imanari asked him to come help Ganpro. He couldn’t figure out why Ganpro needed him. But when he had a match with Shu Sakurai last week he finally understood. He thought Ganpro wrestlers were only concerned with entertaining their audience but found out they also have the will to fight. So Ganpro does need Otani and he is happy to help. Once Imanari got permission from CyberFight to increase Ganpro’s budget for Otani’s pay the deal was made. Hot Japan are currently the NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Champions and they’re looking to defend it on a Ganpro show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STAND PROUD”, 26/06/2021
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Sakisama

This is what I was warning about on Wednesday. Sakisama chokes out Miyu Yamashita and gets her first ever shot at the Princess Of Princess Title. Championships are small change for a lady like Sakisama which is why she has never wanted the Princess Title. She already has so many accomplishments to her name that a prize like that does not interest her. What’s motivating her here is the chance to humiliate Yamashita more than she ever has done before. The champion has never beaten Sakisama in singles matches or directly in tag matches. Sakisama’s been a thorn in Yamashita’s side going back to 2015 (I’m retconning a name for kayfabe reasons to reach back that far but don’t worry about it).

Yuki Arai will be on the show.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021 TOUR IN OSAKA”, 26/06/2021
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

6. I Really Like It! Osaka Specialty Special Single Match: Jun Akiyama Vs Yusuke Okada
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata

Osaka gets a special mentor versus student match. Yusuke Okada always stays close to Jun Akiyama even though he is not a part of Junretsu. Getting a match in his hometown against Akiyama means a lot to Okada.


Additional Attack Tomorrow, Dieno Takes Over Big Daddy’s Restaurant, Beer Garden-Like

June 16, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku & Pom Harajuku Vs Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto & Arisu Endo
2. Shoko Nakajima Vs Kaya Toribami
3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta Vs Miu Watanabe & Mahiro Kiryu
4. Mirai Maiumi Vs Yuki Arai
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Rika Tatsumi & Hyper Misao
6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Tomorrow is Miyu Yamashita’s chance to become the first Double Princess Champion in TJPW history. She was briefly a double champion in 2019 when she held the Princess Of Princess Title and SHINE Title at the same time. But Sakisama has been one of her impossible mountains to climb for almost her entire career. It was only recently she made some progress on that thanks to teaming with Maki Itoh this year. Targeting Mei Saint-Michel may be the right plan to win. If the champions win though and it’s Sakisama standing on top, everything is in place for her to do something she has never done before. Maybe Yamashita won’t be the first Double Princess Champion after all…

6. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Kazusada Higuchi Vs Tetsuya Endo

This week Yusuke Okada and Hisaya Imabayashi went to visit Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s steak restaurant for a meal. They noticed something was odd when they were only given sausages no matter what they ordered. Okada confronted the chef only to find out it was Danshoku Dieno in disguise! Okada then discovered that his friend Hayashishita was trapped in the restroom with a big, thick sausage in his mouth. Okada freed him and they chased Dieno out of the restaurant. The final straw came when they found Dieno changed the restaurant sign, renaming the restaurant into something vulgar. Hayashishita said he is usually a forgiving man but he will not stand for this! He gave Okada an inspiring speech and encouraged him to beat Dieno at Korakuen Hall. Okada vowed to win for Big Daddy!

Kitazawa Town Hall
104 Fans

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase defeated Shota & Miss Mongol when Imanari pinned Shota with an Aerial Body Drop (10:31).
2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto when Ishii pinned Matsumoto with the Hidoiwaza (10:00).
3. Shu Sakurai Trial Single Match: Shinjiro Otani defeated Shu Sakurai with a Knifehand Strike Chop (16:45).
4. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki when Asuka pinned Aoki with the Safflower Robe (13:39).
5. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Ken Ohka & Cherry when Katsumura submitted Ohka with the Ninja Choke (16:36).

The 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament is finally under way. Every match in the opening round had a 30 minute time limit and any time limit draw would be decided with 1 Count Sudden Death rules. Most of the teams entering the tournament has their own team name to add to the fun. Also there were rumours spreading in the locker room during the show that a Mixed Tag Team Championship might be created and rewarded to the tournament winners.

In the main event Harukatsu Shoot (Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi) defeated Ken-chan Cherry-chan (Ken Ohka & Cherry). Katsumura blocked the Fire Spear with the Ninja Choke and held onto the move even when Ohka turned it into the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka couldn’t shake him off and had to give up. Cherry blamed Ohka for the lost and kept telling him he shouldn’t have tapped out no matter how bad his neck was getting twisted. Haruhi said her team will go on to win the tournament. They will also be defending the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow outside of Ganbare☆Pro.

The Weekend Lovers of Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga advance after beating Team Frenzy (Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki). The teamwork shown by Weekend Lovers was the deciding factor. They used a Double Super Kick to get rid of Iwasaki then doubleteamed Aoki until the finish. Iwasaki asked Aoki if they should practice under Ikuto Hidaka to get better. Aoki suggested bringing in Munenori Sawa instead. Asuka isn’t sure if the rumours of a new championship are true but if it is then she wants to be the first champion.

The non-tournament match had Shinjiro Otani beat Shu Sakurai as part of Sakurai’s trial series. It was Yumehito Imanari’s idea to put the match together because he wants Otani to wrestle in Ganpro more often. Imanari thinks there were some NOAH fans who came to the show today because of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. He is happy to see Ganpro grow but understands there is a limit due to its size which is why he called upon Otani to help them out. The heat of Ohka and the heat of Otani combined will create a hot pot of pro wrestling!

Back to the tournament. Harukaze Kogyo (Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE) eliminated Kinniku Kurukuru Shojo Tai (Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto) in an even 10 minutes. Ishii pinned Matsumoto with his modified version of the Emerald Flowsion. Irie shook his opponents’ hands after the match but ignored Matsumoto and left her alone in the ring. Backstage Irie threw in his support for a Mixed Tag Team Championship to be created. He’d fight for one with a different tag partner though. Meanwhile Ishii told HARUKAZE that he wants them to fight like they are going to split up if they lose, just like how it happened with DREAMS HARU TRUE. However HARUKAZE said she is fighting with the goal of reuniting DREAMS HARU TRUE.

Last but not least, Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun (Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase) defeated the team known as Yasashiku Naritai (Shota & Miss Mongol). The power of FMW was summoned when Shota & Miss Mongol did a United Thunder Fire Power Bomb to Imanari. But Imanari blocked Shota’s Frog Splash with his knees and pinned him with a Lou Thesz Press.

The semi-finals on 27th June are Harukatsu Shoot Vs Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun and Weekend Lovers Vs Harukaze Kogyo. The final is held on the same day.

5. Isami Kodaka 19th Anniversary Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Kengo Mashimo

For a match to celebrate 19 years in the industry, Isami Kodaka has picked Kengo Mashimo as his opponent. Sometimes they get along, usually when they have to. But most of the time they don’t. There is a level of respect between them and I’m sure Mashimo will behave. With that said, he probably isn’t going to care if Kodaka gets roughed up more than usual on his special day.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021

1. Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku & Pom Harajuku Vs Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto & Arisu Endo

3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta Vs Miu Watanabe & Mahiro Kiryu

6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

With momentum on her side Miyu Yamashita now aims to be the first Double Princess Champion in Tokyo Joshi. Her tag partner Maki Itoh was upset that Yamashita didn’t call on her to join the photo call with Jun Akiyama and Naomichi Marufuji at the end of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” that was used for the front cover of the latest Weekly Pro-Wrestling issue. Yoshihiko was on it but not Itoh? Come on! Yamashita cheered her up by saying she loves her and knows it was Itoh who cheered for her the most. They’ll make it to the cover of the next issue when they win the Princess Tag Team Titles.

Mei Saint-Michel has been preparing for the match by doing everything but pro wrestling. She’s been playing the piano, writing, learning ballet, doing tea ceremonies and much more. Sakisama promises to make the challengers scream. The more she makes them scream, the more it excites her. The date of the title match was scheduled without her permission so she’ll take her anger out on 121000000.

Six years into her career, Marika Kobashi is ready for her first singles title shot. She wants to win the International Princess Title, turn it into the International Gal Title and bring it to Shibuya where she will become the strongest Gal in the world! Hikari Noa is excited for the match because it proves the IP Title is all about the individuality of the champion and her challengers. She thinks of herself as the main character and her opponents are monsters she must beat one by one.

There is a lot of attention surrounding Yuki Arai’s arrival into TJPW. She is nervous going into her first singles match but wants to show everyone what she is capable of. Her opponent Mirai Maiumi isn’t going to let her hog all the spotlight. She too understands it is an important match. An unbreakable spirit is the biggest weapon a pro wrestler can have and Arai is sure to get one from her countless supporters. To combat this, Mirai has created her own idol unit called MSS48 (Mirai Strong Style 48). She is the only member so far but will recruit anyone who has the power, speed, mentality and excellence that matches her own.

Saiki’s advice to Endo is to be energetic because that is how pro wrestlers become strong. She explained to her how to train muscles particularly in the legs and waist. When Endo asked about eating habits, Saiki encouraged her to take lots of protein. Endo came out of the training session wanting to be an energetic wrestler just like Saiki!

*V1 for THE HALFEE.
5. Engraved In The Man You Admire, The Fight Of Ganpro! Special Single Match: Ikuto Hidaka defeated Ken Ohka with the Stray Dog High Kick (13:14).
6. A Burning Bond Or A Bond Thicker Than Blood!: Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated Shinjiro Otani & Yumehito Imanari when Ishii pinned Imanari with the Kneel Kick (27:31).

At the beginning of the show, Ken Ohka told the audience that when he was growing up in the countryside, he could only go see live pro wrestling once a year. He couldn’t wait for pro wrestling to come to his town because of this. For Ganbare☆Pro the promotion had to wait TWO years before they ran Korakuen Hall again. Today’s big show in the venue is not the destination for Ganpro, it is only the beginning. The aftermath will create momentum needed for Ganpro to run Korakuen again next year and the year after that.

In the main event Yumehito Imanari teamed with Shinjiro Otani. This was a partnership born from Imanari wrestling in ZERO1 over the last few months. This bond was on show when Otani and Imanari entered together with Imanari wearing a jacket Otani had made for him. Otani had faith in Imanari’s efforts against Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie, going so far that he wouldn’t tag in when he felt Imanari could still fight. When Otani did get involved, he was prepared for Irie in particular. Both agreed it’s been a long time since they last fought and then they went straight into Elbow Smashing each other. When Otani did his trademark Facewash on Ishii, Imanari grabbed Irie on the floor and held him in place for Otani to boot instead of Ishii. Imanari used the Death Valley Bomb and the Chubby Knee Kick on Ishii but only got a two count. His momentum was cut off with the Beast Bomber from Irie. Ishii got a nearfall with a Tiger Suplex and was almost pinned himself when Imanari countered a second Tiger Suplex into a Samson Clutch. But the end came when Ishii hit the Kneel Kick and Imanari was pinned. Both team received a year’s supply of Coroblock from the show sponsor.

Irie and Otani faced off after the match. Imanari tried to step in but Irie knocked him down and left the ring with Ishii. Otani gave encouragement to Imanari. No matter how much he struggled today he never gave up and the fans appreciate that. Those in the audience who saw Imanari get back up again and again will be inspired to do their best tomorrow. That is what pro wrestlers are capable of, to send their energy to the fans. Otani is proud of Imanari today and he will learn that the one who keeps losing will eventually win in the end. Imanari thanked Otani for the speech and thanked the fans for coming to see the show while the Coronavirus is around. He will treat wrestling like a marathon and run towards his goal.

Ohka’s attempt to surpass Ikuto Hidaka ended in defeat. It was the High Kicks that brought down Ohka and he fell to one too many. Hidaka asked the fans if the Ohka they saw today is the one they want to see? They all applauded positively. Ohka is 43 and Hidaka is 48 but age is just a number. Ohka said he will never quit even if he is 60 or 70 years old. He won’t leave the ring until he defeats Hidaka! When Ohka left, Hidaka admitted he liked what he heard so he will continue to fight in Ganpro! Next time he promises to get Ohka in the Shawn Capture.

THE HALFEE achieved their goal of defending the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles in Korakuen Hall. It was a close call and they got over it thanks to a missed Moonsault from Shinichiro Tominaga. While he scrambled to recover, Katsuzaki Shunosuke hit him with a Jumping High Kick and Moehiko Harumisawa rolled him over with the Chaka Chaka (Bridging Backslide Pin) to get the three count. Harumisawa was so pleased to win against a team of wrestlers associated with the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title that she now wants to challenge for that championship. She asked Asuka for a title shot at the next Ganpro show. Asuka said Tominaga lost today’s match, not her. However she accepts the challenge from Moeka Haruhi for 23rd Nevember.

It took the Running Three from Takumi Iroha to put Yuna Manase away. There was a show of respect afterwards when Iroha formed the letter S with her hands and Manase did the same in response. Backstage Iroha told Manase to carry Ganpro on her back like she does with Marvelous. That way they can carry each other and improve together.

The team of Chris Brookes & Yuna Mizumori came here today representing ChocoPro and even carried that promotion’s entrance curtain to the ring with them. They went on to beat Shota & HARUKAZE. Brookes set the finish up with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and Mizumori finished the job with the Mushakaeshi.

Kota Umeda returned and it’s good to see he still has a chip on his shoulder. He slapped away Kouki Iwasaki’s handshake offer after their match. As for Iwasaki, he said his next target is Ikuto Hidaka!

It is Chris Brookes’ 29th birthday today and his best friend Drew Parker got him a Studio Ghibli mug for his present. However Brookes isn’t letting their friendship get in the way of their No DQ Match so he smashed the mug to pieces! They are about to have an important match for the DDT UNIVERSAL Title. It’s more important than their 6 or 7 years of friendship. Parker thinks success in Japan has gone to Brookes’ head.

Tetsuya Endo will announced his official opponent for “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020” on this show. More on this below but he has several candidates in mind. They’re probably all gravure models. If that doesn’t work he is also open to anybody he hasn’t considered yet to make their case.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HONJITSU WA SEITEN NARI 2020”, 12/09/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. POWER OF DREAM Vs Shawn Capture: Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ikuto Hidaka
2. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol (c) Vs Katsuzaki Shunosuke, Moehiko Harumisawa & Washi Sakurai
3. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Asuka (c) Vs Shinichiro Tominaga

The Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title has been saved. The hard work begins now for the new champion Asuka because she already has somebody targeting her. Shinichiro Tominaga is the first challenger and his goal is to be the first Amateur pro wrestler (as in college club wrestling, not actual amateur wrestling) to win the Indy Jr. Title. He’s not afraid to attack from behind or cheap shot his way to victory either, as shown by his win over Ken Ohka and what he did to Asuka after challenging her.

The GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles were last defended in February when THE HALFEE were a newly formed trio challenging for the titles. Ganpocha-gun defeated them and done nothing with the belts since then. A lot has changed since then and Moeka Haruhi wants her team to get another title shot. If THE HALFEE wins this time then they aim to defend the titles at Korakuen Hall in October.

Kouki Iwasaki and Ikuto Hidaka got into a fight after their tag match on the last show. The singles match is the obvious solution to this.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BAD COMMUNICATION 2020”, 06/10/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Ganpro Young General Vs Mad Dog Who Came Back!: Kouki Iwasaki Vs Kota Umeda
2. The Fate Of The Stars You Can Meet In Ganpro!: Yuna Manase Vs Takumi Iroha
3. A Burning Bond Or A Bond Thicker Than Blood!: Shinjiro Otani & Yumehito Imanari Vs Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie

Ganbare☆Wrestling returns to Korakuen Hall to hold their third show in the building. Yumehito Imanari’s current infatuation with ZERO1 results in Shinjiro Otani returning to Ganpro after his match with Imanari last November. This time they’re teaming up against two thirds of the former Team Dream Futures. It looks like Keisuke Ishii is in a slump after losing the Indy World Jr. Title. Shigehiro Irie’s Ganpro appearances have all been him coming and going at his own leisure.

Months ago Yuna Manase tweeted a picture of Takumi Iroha making an entrance, commenting on how cool she looks. Fast forward to now and she will get to wrestle her! They’ve had one singles match against each other and a tag match teaming together over in Stardom but they were way back in 2014. Things are way different with both of them nowadays.

Kota Umeda emerges from the shadows again. He was last seen wrestling in BASARA back in January. He has a lot of history with Kouki Iwasaki when they were in DNA together so it will be fun to see the sparks fly when they fight each other again.

DDT “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020”, 03/11/2020
Tokyo Ota Ward Gymnasium

1. Special Tag Match: HarahiMarafuji Vs CimaSoma: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji Vs CIMA & Soma Takao
2. Special Single Match: Jun Akiyama Vs Konosuke Takeshita
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs X

Here is the update to Endo picking Kenny Omega as his next KO-D Openweight Title defence. Omega is unable to enter Japan while the Coronavirus pandemic is happening so the match will not take place at “ULTIMATE PARTY 2020”. When Omega is able to travel to Japan again, that is when Endo Vs Omega will happen in DDT. Until then, Endo has to pick another wrestler to defend the KO-D Title against at Ota Ward Gymnasium in November. As already mentioned above, Endo will pick his opponent on 7th September.

Omega sent a video to Endo responding to the challenge. Omega said Endo is not on the same level as him no matter how much Endo models himself after Omega. He sees that Endo is the top superstar in DDT who got everything he wanted. But Omega has conquered wrestling all over the world. When he goes back to DDT he will be Endo’s teacher again and will give Endo a lesson he will never forget. He will spank Endo until he cries to Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Sanshiro Takagi and Yukinori Matsui for help. And when Omega wins the KO-D Title, the fans will thank him for saving DDT from Endo.

Endo gave his response after watching the video. He said Omega hasn’t changed since anything since the time they lived in the same dormitory. Omega’s story isn’t interesting. If he can’t got to Japan then maybe Endo will go to America and quarantine himself for two weeks to make the match happen.
