Shinjuku FACE
391 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Keisuke Ishii & Soma Takao (Red) defeated Mizuki Watase & Rekka (Blue) when Takao pinned Rekka with the Gin And Tonic (7:41).
2. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo (Blue) defeated Lady Beard & Shunma Katsumata (Red) when Endo pinned Katsumata with the Shooting Star Press (9:40).
3. HARASHIMA (Red) defeated Yuki Ueno (Blue) with the Somato (7:42).

5. KUDO & Makoto Oishi (Red) defeated Akito & Masahiro Takanashi (Blue) when Oishi pinned Takanashi with the Jikiden Tornado Clutch (12:47).
*Red Team defeats Blue Team 3-2.

The BOYZ roster was split into two teams for a show long contest where the audience were challenged to predict the results. In the end the Red Team defeated the Blue Team 3-2. Akito complained about the result after the main event and got into an argument with Nobuhiro Shimatani over it. Johnny Etajima got them to settle down. He announced the next BOYZ show will be held on 30th October and will be a Hallowe’en special.

The theme of this BOYZ show was Kabukicho host clubs. All of the wrestlers except for DAMNATION appeared dressed as club hosts and carrying roses. Yukio Sakaguchi was furious when he found out Hirata Collection A.T. was wearing the same outfit as him. He threw his rose at Hirata and then stormed off, never to be seen on the show again. Hirata had to wrestle Konosuke Takeshita & Nobuhiro Shimatani two against one until somebody unexpected came to the rescue. It was Hirata’s senior from high school, Yukio Collection A.T.! Together they defeated their opponents and celebrated with a model walk.

Mizuki Watase did not have enough time to return to the locker room after the opening ceremony so he stayed in the ring to change into his wrestling gear for the first match.

Keisuke Ishii has been going through a slump ever since he lost the AJPW Jr. Title. He figured out that in order to solve his problem, he should look back to his origin. He should go back to 2007 when he was a trainee in the All Japan dojo. Ishii has asked Kaz Hayashi, who was an attendant of the dojo at the time, to come help him out. Hayashi remembers Ishii from the dojo. So many new recruits sign up and quit over the years that it is easy to lose track but Hayashi said he has an intense memory of the day Ishii quit. Normally when trainees quit the dojo they escape during the middle of the night without telling anybody. But Ishii simply apologised to his trainers, told them he was quitting and left. Ishii remembered an exercise where the trainees had to run behind a Porsche car for 25km. When it was Ishii’s turn to drive the Porsche he was so nervous of causing an accident that he stepped on the brakes a lot. Hayashi doesn’t remember this story but joked that the Porsche does have a scratch on it. He is happy to answer Ishii’s request for help.

Sanshiro Takagi & Ken Ohka Vs Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine was originally supposed to be a part of this show. Ohka feels indebted to Takagi, Dino and Sasadango for his career and hopes to repay them. Dino & Sasadango both found his comments funny and they wondered why Ohka was going to help Takagi beat them. They called him a slave and said Atsushi Onita would cry if he found out what Ohka was doing. They riled up Ohka so much that he demanded to switch sides so all three of them could beat Takagi 3 on 1. Amon Tusurmi obliged for some reason.

Danny Duggan is coming over from Canadian Wrestling’s Elite. He will be wrestling at Ganbare☆Wrestling the day before too.

DDT “KING OF DDT 2ND ROUND” Results

June 4, 2017

DDT “KING OF DDT 2ND ROUND”, 04/06/2017
Shinjuku FACE
404 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Hirata Collection A.T. when Katsumata pinned Hirata with the Katsumata-Style Guillotine (6:48).
2. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie defeated Soma Takao, Kouki Iwasaki & Yuki Ueno and Danshoku Dino, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda when Sasaki submitted Honda with the Cross Facelock (11:14).
3. Kazusada Higuchi & Mike Bailey defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Diego when Bailey pinned Takeshita with the Green Tea Plunge (13:22).
*Mike Bailey wins Konosuke Takeshita’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.
4. King Of DDT 2017 – Round 2: Akito defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Scorpion Lock (5:04).
5. King Of DDT 2017 – Round 2: Tetsuya Endo defeated KUDO with The Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds (14:16).
6. King Of DDT 2017 – Round 2: HARASHIMA defeated Yukio Sakaguchi by TKO with a Modified Sleeper Hold (15:50).
7. King Of DDT 2017 – Round 2: Shigehiro Irie defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Beast Bomber (14:32).

A clash between former Team Drift friends headlined the King Of DDT 2nd Round. Shigehiro Irie went over Keisuke Ishii with two Beast Bombers and he survived the Kneel Kick along the way. Ishii wanted to shake Irie’s hand after the match but he got a hug instead.

HARASHIMA outwrestled Yukio Sakagachi to advance to the semi-finals. Sakaguchi cut off the Somato with a Jumping Middle Kick then applied a Sleeper Hold. HARASHIMA fought out of it and locked in a Cross Armbreaker. He changed it into a Modified Sleeper Hold and kept it tight until Sakaguchi lost consciousness. When he came to, Sakaguchi accepted the result and shook HARASHIMA’s hand.

Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds continues to give Tetsuya Endo victories, this time putting away KUDO. The big turn in momentum came when KUDO aimed to hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to Endo on the apron but Endo moved. KUDO kicked out of the Swan Dive Firebird Splash but Endo’s new finisher knocked him out of the tournament.

Masahiro Takanashi disguised himself in normal clothes and ambushed Akito from the crowd. When the plan didn’t beat Akito immediately, Takanashi panicked because he exhausted all of his tactics for the match! He thought on the fly and gave Akito a Low Blow followed by a roll up. However Diego was there to tell the ref that Takanashi was cheating. Akito regained positioning and trapped Takanashi in the Scorpion Lock to tap him out.

A draw was held at the end of the show to determine the semi-finals. Akito and Tetsuya Endo drew each other while HARASHIMA got Shigehiro Irie. The semi-finals and final takes place in Korakuen Hall on 25th June.

Konosuke Takeshita no longer has his backup plan. Mike Bailey pinned the KO-D Openweight Champion in a tag match to win his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract. Bailey recovered from a Dragon Suplex to catch Takeshita with a Moonsault Power Slam for the three count. Bailey asked Amon Tsurumi when the next KO-D Title match was scheduled. He was told 2nd July at Shinjuku Village Studio C 106. Bailey said he will defend the contract until that date so he can be the challenger.

Takeshita’s threats for the title didn’t end there. Naomi Yoshimura entered the ring to confront him again. He told the audience the same stories he told Takeshita a few days ago. His family fell apart, he was told to quit school by his teacher and now it turns out a girl named Mari-chan he had a crush on in school turned him down for someone else. Yoshimura blames Takeshita for breaking his family apart and stealing his first love so Yoshimura will cash in his Right To Challenge Contract when the time is right to make it memorable.
