September 15, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~”, 15/09/2021
Shinjuku FACE
202 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuka Sakazaki, Suzume & Haruna Neko defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo when Sakazaki pinned Endo with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (9:53).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Kaya Toribami with the I Am A Hero (7:23).
3. Yuki Aino & Raku defeated Hikari Noa & Nao Kakuta when Aino pinned Noa with the UBV (Infinite Love And Flame) (10:01).
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Mizuki & Pom Harajuku when Sakisama submitted Harajuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:33).
5. Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai Vs Maki Itoh, Shoko Nakajima & Moka Miyamoto ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).

Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh found themselves on equal footing for most of the main event. While Miu Watanabe, Yuki Arai, Shoko Nakajima and Moka Miyamoto all had their parts to play, the match came down to Yamashita and Itoh in the final moments. Itoh countered the Crash Rabbit Heat into a Crab Hold. Yamashita reached the ropes but her Skull Kick attempt missed and Itoh put her in the Itoh Deluxe. Time ran out before we could find out if the move would make Yamashita give up. Neither woman had much to say to each other after the match.

The presence of Yuka Sakazaki at ringside during Match #4 kept bothering Sakisama. Sakazaki was only there to do ringside duties but that was enough for Sakisama to glare at her and lose focus on the match. Meanwhile Mei Saint-Michel got on Mizuki’s bad side by playing with parts of her ring costume. NEO Biishiki-gun won anyway and confronted The Magical Sugar Rabbits in the ring. Sakisama offered Mizuki to join her side so she could become more graceful, pretty and beautiful. Mizuki yelled “No!” The only thing about NEO Biishiki-gun she finds attractive are the Princess Tag Team Titles. MagiRabi want to take those belts and make the world a more peaceful place. Saint-Michel called them selfish and won’t ever forgive them for threatening to take the titles away. Sakisama accepted MagiRabi’s challenge and wants the title match to happen at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”!

Never underestimate Yuki Aino! She pinned another champion in a tag match today, this time Hikari Noa. She told Noa that even though she lost to Yamashita recently, her fire never disappeared. Instead it burns even more! Aino then challenged Noa for the International Princess Title. Noa understands why Aino wants the title but it belongs to her. She suggested they have the match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”. Noa promised to blow up Aino so she can retain her cute belt.

Hyper Misao gifted Kaya Toribami her own superhero cloak to wear while they wrestled each other. The real reason was so Misao had something to pull and choke her with. Toribami caught on and got rid of the cloak. She thought it still belonged to her after the match but Misao walked off with it.


Fujita Close Contact, CDK Comeback, Otani Injured At Ganpro

September 14, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~”, 15/09/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Hyper Misao Vs Kaya Toribami
2. Yuka Sakazaki, Suzume & Haruna Neko Vs Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo
3. Hikari Noa & Nao Kakuta Vs Yuki Aino & Raku
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel Vs Mizuki & Pom Harajuku
5. Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai Vs Maki Itoh, Shoko Nakajima & Moka Miyamoto

The team-ups are done for now. Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh are on opposite sides for their next “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” warmup match.

Yuki Arai is quickly forming teams with her senpais. Yamashita helped train her so that’s a natural duo and she is getting along in the ring with Miu Watanabe too. The three of them team up together for the first time. Meanwhile Moka Miyamoto is becoming something of a rival to Arai as the two rookies breaking in around the same time. Shoko Nakajima gets to be the x factor in the match.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021 TOUR IN YOKOHAMA”, 18/09/2021
Yokohama Radiant Hall

1. Tetsuya Endo Vs Hideki Okatani
2. Yuji Hino & Mad Paulie Vs Akito & Tomomitsu Matsunaga
3. Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Mizuki Watase Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Naomi Yoshimura & Yuya Koroku
4. Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Ueno & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno, Yuki “Sexy” Iino & Yukio Naya
5. Yokohama Specialty Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Keigo Nakamura Vs Chris Brookes & HARASHIMA
6. Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao Vs Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano

Minoru Fujita has been pulled from the show because he may have recently been in close contact with the Coronavirus. He is still waiting on an update so he will not be ready to compete in time if it turns out to be a negative case. Takumi Tsukamoto takes his place at the Yokohama show.

BASARA “BASARA 170 ~HOJIRO~”, 20/09/2021
Chiba 2AW Square

1. Union MAX Next Challenger Decision League: FUMA (4) Vs Takato Nakano (2)
2. Union MAX Next Challenger Decision League: Ryota Nakatsu (4) Vs Masato Kamino (2)

The “Nameless Corps” of Tsukamoto, Fuminori Abe & Yasu Urano were supposed to challenge for the UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles on this show. However Fujita is one third of the champions and cannot be at this show either. The title match has been cancelled for that reason.

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Yoshiaki Yatsu, Akito, Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura (c) Vs Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura
3. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Minoru Fujita

Fujita will likely be good to go in time for the DDT Universal Title match to go ahead.

Two former KO-D Tag Team Champions are looking to take hold of the belts again. HARASHIMA was the previous champion as part of Smile Pissari until The 37KAMIINA defeated them. This time HARASHIMA is staying inside DISASTER BOX to look for a tag partner and he ended up with Naomi Yoshimura. These wrestlers are all no strangers to each other but it is still a first time tag team match up.

DDT “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 8 ~LAUGHING GATE FORTUNE~”, 17/10/2021
Osaka City Abeno Ward Center

1. Masahiro Takanashi Returns To Osaka! Special Tag Match: Chris Brookes & Masahiro Takanashi Vs X & X
2. Special Singles Match To Commemorate Yukinori Matsui’s 25th Anniversary Of His Debut Two Years Later: Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro
3. Special Tag Match ~OSAKA THE BEST~: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs Shigehiro Irie & Naomi Yoshimura
4. Special Tag Match ~ South Osaka Great War! Izumi Vs Kishiwada: Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada Vs Magnitude Kishiwada & Inaba no Buffalo

Four Osaka wrestlers all forged by DDT are put together in one match by Yukinori Matsui. Out of the four, Shigehiro Irie is sort of the black sheep of the group. But when Matsui wants him to show up at a DDT show he is booking, Irie will always oblige.

Osaka gets the first CDK tag match in DDT since Masahiro Takanashi’s comeback.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆CLIMAX 2021 1ST ROUND”, 24/10/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

The Ganbare☆Climax tournament returns for the first time in three years. The single elimination tournament will consist of three shows in October and November. The last tournament winner was Yumehito Imanari in 2018.

Shinjiro Otani fractured his left forearm during Sunday’s match against Kouki Iwasaki. The injury requires surgery and he will not be at any of Ganbare☆Pro’s upcoming shows in September and October.


Dramatic Survivor, A Unit Must Split Up! Dieno And Iino New Team Name, Takanashi Comeback, Sasaki Wants CM Punk?!?

August 23, 2021

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021 TOUR IN SENDAI”, 29/08/2021
Miyagi Sendai PIT

1. Soma Takao, Yuji Hino & Hiroshi Yamato Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno, Yuki “Sexy” Iino & Kazuki Hirata
2. Shunma Katsumata & Antonio Honda Vs Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura

4. DDT Teenage Project Special Single Match: El Unicorn Vs Ilusion
5. Junretsu Vs DAMANTION!: Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Mizuki Watase Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie
6. Sendai Specialty Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Chihiro Hashimoto Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya
7. Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Yuki Ueno & MAO Vs Chris Brookes, Kazusada Higuchi & Keigo Nakamura

Now that “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is in the rear view mirror, DDT is starting to shake up a little bit with new champions, new youth, a new team and the threat of existing alliances getting torn apart. We’ll get to each one show by show.

DDT “DRAMATIC SURVIVOR 2021”, 04/09/2021
Nagoya Congress Center Event Hall

1. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazuki Hirata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino
2. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: Junretsu, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Ueno & MAO
3. Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Antonio Honda
4. Mad Paulie Vs Keigo Nakamura
5. Kazusada Higuchi & Saki Akai Vs Akito & Yukio Naya
6. Special Single Match: Chris Brookes Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
7. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Decision Match: Losers Of Match #1 Vs Losers Of Match #2

The name of the show isn’t just there to sound cool. The Dramatic Survivor Unit tournament was revealed to be a reverse bracket where the losing teams advance to the final. Win a match and your team is safe, lose all your matches and your unit must split up! Sanshiro Takagi came up with the idea to avoid DDT getting stale. He wants all the teams to fight for survival and there is no bigger motivation than the survival of your unit! To make things even more riskier, if a champion team is in the disbanding unit they will be forced to vacate their titles too! So if The 37KAMIINA lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D Tag Team Titles. If DAMNATION lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. For Junretsu and DISASTER BOX there will be no championships stripped.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori Vs Tokiko Kirihara
2. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
3. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota
4. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong International Police Man Vs Makoto Vs Itsuki Aoki
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Choun-Shiryu is unable to be on the show due to “circumstances”. His spot in the 3 Way Match is coincidentally being filled by the rarely seen Hong Kong International Police Man.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match ~ DRAMATIC WARS: Yoshihiko, Mecha Mummy & Pokotan Vs Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda
2. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
3. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino

Back at the Beer Garden shows Danshoku Dieno and Yuki Iino appealed to form a tag team. Their request wasn’t met because they couldn’t come up with a suitable or tasteful team name. Well today they have their team name and also nicknames to match. From now on Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino are Pheromones! They immediately challenged Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata for the KO-D Tag Titles and got their shot so they would stop annoying the champions.

If the KO-D Tag Titles happen to be vacated because The 37KAMIINA lose the Dramatic Survivor tournament, then the match will be changed into a decision bout to determine the new champions. So at least Takeshita & Katsumata have a chance to reclaim the belts after they are forced to give them up.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The new KO-D Openweight Champion Takeshita took some time to reflect on his latest accomplishment. After finally beating Jun Akiyama, the KO-D Title belt now has a different weight to it and Takeshita feels a different responsibility when it comes to defending it. He is in his best condition because of this pressure and is ready to take on Chris Brookes. He hasn’t beaten Brookes since July 2019 when he defended the KO-D Title against him back then. Brookes has won every singles match they’ve had together since then, which were either championship or tournament matches.

Masahiro Takanashi has become active again since coming back from injury. Not in the ring though because ChocoPro doesn’t have one. He wrestles his first match in DDT since March 2020.

“MASAHIRO TAKANASHI BOX OFFICE YOPPARAI IS BACK”, 01/10/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Dragon Sakurabo, “Old Wise Man” Human-Zee & Tiger Jeet Singh-juku Sumidagawa (w/ Haru Miyako) Vs Gota Ihashi & Antonio Honda (w/ Sayaka Obihiro & KUDO)

3. Yukio Sakaguchi, ken45° & Manjimaru Vs Isami Kodaka, Daiki Shimomura & Yasu Urano

5. Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes Vs Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei (w/ Gorgeous Matsuno)

Third time’s the charm. Takanashi even got to keep the entire card this time.

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

After stealing the belt multiple times over the last month, Daisuke Sasaki in now officially the DDT Universal Champion. His first title defence will be on 12th October and he has the right to choose his challenger. He chose CM Punk but DDT cannot make that happen for multiple reasons. Sasaki then picked Minoru Fujita as his back-up choice. Fujita beat Sasaki at July’s DAMNATION produced show so Sasaki wants to avenge that loss. The match is not official yet but DDT will send the challenge over to Fujita.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

I am aiming to have a preview written and posted by Thursday night at the latest.

The main event will have Kenta Kobashi at ringside to witness the KO-D Openweight Title match. Whenever he shows up for big matches involving Jun Akiyama, Akiyama usually wins so he is kind of a good luck charm for him. That isn’t meant to be the intention of his appearances though. Last time he appeared in DDT he was invited by Tetsuya Endo to give advice for fighting against Akiyama.

Yuki Ueno briefly had the DDT Universal Title returned to him during today’s press conference. Hisaya Imabayashi convinced Daisuke Sasaki to send the belt back in order to sign the match contract but Sasaki did not attend the signing. Instead he sent a video message that Ueno watched. That turned out to be a trap and Sasaki was in the room all along! He ambushed Ueno, stole the belt and ran off with it yet again!

Saki Akai is determined to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles and silence those who are uncomfortable with her wrestling against men. Like Yuji Hino for example. He thinks having a woman on the team is like taking part in a Handicap match. Akai admits she is afraid of taking Chops from Yuji Hino (and he swears he won’t Chop her because it would result in murder) but she needs to overcome those fears to become a champion again. Yukio Sakaguchi credits Akai for burning a fire within himself and Kazusada Higuchi that they have been missing recently. That has been shown during Sakaguchi’s clashes with Soma Takao. They may have to face a cruel reality though. Endo has warned that he has only gotten better since the title match was put together. DAMNATION’s comments made Akai mad and she slapped the rest of Eruption to fire them up.

There has been an attempt by DDT recently to put together more hardcore matches. Jun Kasai has watched some and feels lukewarm towards them. They’re a bit too relaxed for his tastes. But rumours are going around that Kasai has a low pain threshold for stepping on Lego. Shunma Katsumata brought it up and Kasai avoided the topic by saying he never feels pain when he is in front of an audience. MAO wants to prove there is nothing “relaxed” about DDT’s hardcore style. Chris Brookes thinks he is being ignored because he doesn’t feature in the hype video for the match.

The youngsters from the DDT Teenage Project want to make an impact. Ilusion promises to make that impact and be the standout of the match so he can become the symbol of the project. El Unicorn is the smallest wrestler in the match but wants to be in the ring with the likes of Yuji Okabayashi and Naomi Yoshimura. They’re not the only teenagers in the match. Reimu Imai is 16 years old and looks forward to hitting the larger opponents with all he’s got. TAMURA is fascinated to see how these teenagers will fare. HARASHIMA is excited to see DDT run a big show outdoors and it reminds him of the other outdoor shows DDT has held throughout his time with them.

“MASAHIRO TAKANASHI BOX OFFICE YOPPARAI IS BACK”, 03/09/2021

1. Dragon Sakurabo, “Old Wise Man” Human-Zee & Tiger Jeet Singh-juku Sumidagawa (w/ Haru Miyako) Vs Gota Ihashi & Antonio Honda (w/ Sayaka Obihiro & KUDO)

Unfortunately Masahiro Takanashi’s self-produced show has been postpone again. He decided it is still not safe to run the show under current circumstances. He is currently in discussions with the venue to arrange a new date for the show.

3. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota
4. 3 Way Match: Choun-Shiryu Vs Makoto Vs Itsuki Aoki
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Oh the betrayal! HARUKAZE got Yuu Yamagata’s message loud and clear, ditching Yuna Manase after all they did to build up Ganbare☆Joshi together. Now HARUKAZE is siding with Yamagata to learn how to become stronger. Manase still has Moeka Haruhi to rely on and they will fight to bring HARUKAZE back to Ganjo.

Makoto is also sticking around for a while as part of Yamagata’s group. That’s a woman with a lot of different links and connections in the industry so not all of her matches will be attached to the Manase/Yamagata feud.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
2. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata

Kazuki Hirata gets a DDT Extreme Title shot after threatening to quit DDT and leave all of the jobs nobody else wants to do. He also wants Shinya Aoki to come up with a match stipulation that can allow even the weakest wrestler like Hirata an even chance to win. He swears it’s to make the match more exciting before Aoki beats him.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”, 09/10/2021
Tokyo Ota Ward Gymnasium

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

Doesn’t matter how battered and bruised she is right now because Maki Itoh could not be happier. After winning the Tokyo Princess Cup she will now face Miyu Yamashita for the Princess Of Princess Title at Ota Ward Gymnasium. Yamashita is amazed at how strong Itoh has become and she wants to beat this version of her. They’ve had several singles matches before including two Princess Title bouts and Itoh has never won any of them. They also team together as 121000000 but Itoh thought they should disband. Yamashita talked her out of it because it wouldn’t make a difference to the match. Therefore there’s no need to split the team up.

Yuki Arai is confirmed to be on the show.

A little extra drama added to the main event is the friendship between HARUKAZE and Makoto. They get along outside the ring so could that somehow effect HARUKAZE teaming with Yuna Manase? The last time Yuu Yamagata was here she told HARUKAZE that Manase is holding back her progress.

6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

A press conference was held today covering some of the important “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” matches. Konosuke Takeshita admitted that losing twice to Jun Akiyama is what helped make him come into this match as a much better wrestler. He wants to win the KO-D Openweight Title and say with pride that “DDT has Takeshita.” Akiyama said that although his opponent is bigger and stronger, he’s going to show him what happens when the feelings in your heart and mind prevail. Akiyama won the previous two matches by submission but will take winning the third match by pinfall if he has to.

Daisuke Sasaki was able to appear on Zoom (goofy background and all) because he is finishing up his quarantine period. His physical absence from the press conference annoyed Yuki Ueno even more because Sasaki still has the stolen DDT Universal Title.

Sanshiro Takagi explained that when students from the DDT Teenage Project turn 20 years old they will become full time members of DDT. Their school education is given priority so will not be wrestling on every show. El Unicorn said he’s been recently inspired by Momiji Nishiya, the 13 year old skateboarder who won gold at the Olympics. Ilusion said he wants to become a big name worldwide. Both of them are just as focused on fighting the big names in their match as they are fighting each other.

Yesterday Atsushi Onita gathered his team together at a parking lot in Chiba to demonstrate the explosions that will be happen for their match. A watermelon was meant to be used as the target. Kuro-chan and his group interrupted the scene and attacked Onita’s team. Super Sasadango Machine smashed the watermelon over Sanshiro Takagi’s head while Akito & Maki Itoh were both taken care of. Kuro-chan & Hikari Noa then grabbed an explosive barbed wire bat and blasted Onita with it. Kuro-chan added insult to injury by pinning Onita while Sasadango counted to three. Kuro-chan promised to retire Onita and take over the rights to explosion death matches!

I will be writing a preview for the show next week.

1. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota

There’s more to Ganbare☆Joshi than just the Manase & HARUKAZE drama. Cherry allegedly won a match against Shota in impressive fashion on the last show but no evidence of it happening exists. Whatever happened between them resulted in them now teaming together. Miss Mongol usually has Shota’s number when they fight each other and Yumehito Imanari isn’t going to be distracted by any Pocchari Joshi shenanigans.

The second DDT Teenage Project match has El Unicorn and Ilusion face each other one on one.

6. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: Jun Akiyama, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno, Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura when Endo pinned Yoshimura with the Shooting Star Press (21:26).

Beer Garden 2021 came to a close with the usual end to DDT’s tradition, a Fan Lottery 6-Man Tag Match. Members of the audience randomly picked the spots for each team and we ended up with Jun Akiyama, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo all on the same side. Any visual sign of tension disappeared when Endo came out dressed in his old wrestling gear and encouraged the others to reform Happy Motels for one night. Akiyama had to play the role of Antonio Honda in this case. The opposing team was Yuki Ueno, Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura. All of them came from the DNA generation so they paid tribute to the old brand by wearing DNA shirts and walking out to the DNA theme song. Akiyama played the part of Honda well by tripping onto his knee and doing the Bionic Elbow with his partners. The three of them worked so well they won the match with Endo getting the pin on Yoshimura.

After the match Endo said Beer Garden is all about having fun so he encouraged Akiyama and Takeshita to let go of their rivalry for the day. He also apologised to Takeshita for cheap shotting him at last year’s Beer Garden finale. Takeshita and Akiyama both agreed to get along but things will go back to normal when they fight each other for the KO-D Tag Team Titles on 15th August and the KO-D Openweight Title on the 21st. Endo also promoted his DAMNATION team defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles on that day too. They all raised their hands together to end the show… and then Endo Headbutted Takeshita. Endo stormed off backstage and stripped out of his old costume embarrassed that he had to act so nice towards Akiyama & Takeshita today.

Chris Brookes didn’t want to team with Keigo Nakamura so he purposely joined the other team to make it a 3 Vs 1 Handicap match. Brookes entered the ring with The 37KAMIINA but Nakamura begged him to team up as planned. Brookes agreed to do it but still helped Shunma Katsumata & MAO do some triple team spots. Brookes eventually took the match seriously but it wasn’t enough for them to win. Katsumata & MAO hit the Power Bomb/Blockbuster version of MADMAX (apparently any double team move involving Katsumata jumping off the top rope is called the MADMAX) on Nakamura to get the win. Afterwards Katsumata told MAO he found out Jun Kasai’s weakness. He doesn’t like stepping on Lego so they’re going to use them against him at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”!

Daisuke Sasaki was pulled from the show on short notice because he might have been in close contact with somebody who recently tested positive for the Coronavirus. The Drunk Match was cancelled and HARASHIMA was moved over to the Rock & Roll Death Match. There was another replacement as Antonio Honda suffered from love sickness and had to be replaced by A.YAZAWA in a rare appearance. Everyone in the match got drunk and danced whenever music played. YAZAWA and Saki Akai did karaoke. A recording of Shuji Ishikawa singing caused Mad Paulie to dance. Everyone fell asleep until Swan Lake played and they all did ballet together. YAZAWA then rolled over Kazuki Hirata to win the match.

Eruption once again got the better of DAMNATION once again in their latest preview match, this time with Yusuke Okada teaming with them. Yuji Hino was already drinking and decided to wrestle in his normal clothing. When he put Akito in a Sleeper Hold he flipped off the rest of his opponents. Eventually he got drunk and when he went to do the Diving Body Press off the top rope, he landed on Nobuhiro Shimatani instead of Yukio Sakaguchi. Hino needed Soma Takao’s help to get out of the ring and while that happened, Sakaguchi pinned Shimatani with the God’s Right Knee.

An accidental bump of heads between Danshoku Dieno and Hideki Okatani during the opening of the show led to them swapping bodies before their match. Dieno walked out wearing Okatani’s gear while Okatani ran out in Dieno’s costume acting just like him. Another clash of heads seemed to turn them back to normal. Dieno was himself again and he chased after Daisuke Kiso. However Okatani didn’t change and he got his hands on Yukinori Matsui. That officials had to call of the match as things got out of hand.

Sanshiro Takagi paid a lot of cash to repair the Dramatic Dream so he is going to get his money’s worth! He brought it out for the opening match, crashed into the combined centaur form of Yukio Naya & Yuki Iino and then crashed into his own partner Yuya Koroku. Iino then hit a Lariat on Koroku to take the win for his team.

The most important match of the week, nay, the month took place in the pre-show. It was the DDT GM Hisaya Imabayashi against the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda in the latest chapter of their never ending one sided rivalry. Imabayashi was spurned on by phonecalls of his increasingly disgruntled wife while Koda showed a more evil side to his wrestling abilities. Sadly for Imabayashi he fell to the Sleeper Hold and as a result won’t be welcomed back home by his family.

Midway through the show, Dieno & Iino confronted Imabayashi demanding to be made into a full time tag team. They kept coming up with sexual innuendos for team names like Osu Academy, The Wizard Of Osu and Will Osupreay. Imabayashi told them he will agree to their demand once they come up with a better tag team name.

Earlier today on the Ganbare☆Pro show, Yuna Manase made it known that she wants a match against Saki Akai. She crashed the DDT show along with Ken Ohka to challenge Akai directly. It is a match she wanted to have at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” and when that never happened it’s been bothering her ever since. Akai accepted the challenge and wants the match to happen in Fukuoka on 12th September. Manase said Ganpro already has a show in Itabashi that day but Ohka encouraged her to go do it. Manase offered to shake hands but Akai left her hanging.

Voice actor Tetsu Inada will be making appearances at the Hiragana Muscle shows in September.

Every year the Beer Garden series is such good fun that you can’t blame some of the other promotions for joining in. Ganbare☆Pro held their Beer Garden-like show before DDT closed out the weekend. In the main event, a squad of Ganpro wrestlers fought against a group from the TTT promotion. This match continued the rivalry between the two groups spearheaded by Ken Ohka and Guts Ishijima. TTT got off to a strong start by eliminating Kouki Iwasaki and Yumehito Imanari back to back. The entrance of Shuichiro Katsumura quickly turned the tables when he tapped out Akiyori Takizawa and then knocked Masked Mystery out of the ring. The final part of the match saw Ohka & Katsumura beat Ishijima & TORU to give Ganpro the victory. However TTT went off to lick their wounds and gave the message that this inter-promotional feud is not over yet. Ohka is open to the idea of beating Ishijima as many times as he wants.

Yuna Manase defeated Yuna Mizumori in the P1 Climax (changed from BEST OF THE SUPER Pocchari) and received 10,000 yen as her prize. However when she was given the giant cheque she tore it in half and gave one piece over to Mizumori to share the prize. She welcomed Mizumori to Pocchari Joshi and Nikkan Lee also threw in her support for the group. At the end of the show Manase confronted Ohka and told him her idea to make Ganbare☆Joshi even bigger. She wants a singles match against Saki Akai! Ohka promised to meet with DDT management later in the night to put the match together.

Day 2 of Beer Garden had The 37KAMIINA all face each other in a Hardcore 4 Way Match. Tables, ladders and chairs were placed around the ring for them to use but each wrestler brought out their own weapons too. MAO brought out a massage gun and homemade shield, Yuki Ueno had training equipment, Konosuke Takeshita had a bat covered in toy blocks and Shunma Katsumata had a plastic box full of toy blocks inside. Since this match was put together by Katsumata he asked the others to join him in a chair duel. They did so but the other three later put Katsumata through a table. MAO also put Ueno through a plastic box and chairs with an Avalanche Package Piledriver. Katsumata threw his boxes at everyone and filled the ring with toy blocks. He gave Takeshita a Hurricanrana onto the pile but Takeshita continued the momentum and rolled his opponent into a pinning combination for the win. After the match Katsumata had to call the rest of the unit back into the ring so they could close out the show together. He asked each of them what they thought of the match but cut off every answer so he could say how awesome he is. He then listed all of the championships The 37KAMIINA are fighting for next month. They will become the central stove of DDT and will turn the company into a sauna!

Makoto Oishi was in attendance to watch Junretsu face MEN’S Club in his produce match. Yusuke Okada won the match in Oishi’s place but Oishi insists he is not his substitute. Despite that, he gives his support to Okada to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Jun Akiyama next month. He also wants to book Akiyama versus MEN’S Teioh in a singles match after their first time meeting today. Both Akiyama and Teioh joked that Oishi shouldn’t be booking singles matches between two wrestlers over 50.

The CyberFight Concurso was a chance for DDT’s bodybuilders to strut their stuff in their underwear. That idea was almost ruined when Tetsuya Endo pinned Gorgeous Matsuno in under a minute. Hisaya Imabayashi told Endo to restart the match because Matsuno is his dad’s friend. The match began again, they repeated the spot and this time Matsuno kicked out. However Matsuno then gave Low Blows to everyone in the ring, causing the match to get thrown out. A winner had to be determined so everyone decided on a pose off. They also forced Imabayashi to take part in it. The audience voted for the winner and they chose Imabayashi!

DAMNATION met their mirror opposites when Chris Brookes, Antonio Honda & Super Sasadango Machine showed up as IyasareNATION! Brookes was Chrisma Brookes, Honda was Mad Anton and Sasadango was Yoshihiro Hino. That last one made Yuji Hino laugh. In a reversal, Mad Paulie took Honda’s comedy spot and told his own Gongitsune joke through grunts. He also got the pin on Honda to win in the end.

The 3 Way Match ended in a 5 minute draw so Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Naya and Naomi Yoshimura decided on a sumo tournament to settle on a winner. Higuchi was the first person to win twice in a row so he was determined the winner.

Every now and then Soma Takao reminds everyone he is influenced by CIMA. He did it here by beating Keigo Nakamura with the Perfect Driver.
