Kazuki Hirata got a surprise pinfall off of Danshoku Dino. The two have a singles match coming up tomorrow. Hirata asked Dino if he could get a title match if he beats him again. Dino said today’s defeat was a mistake and he won’t embarrass himself by losing to Hirata again tomorrow.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINJUKU”, 23/11/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Maho Kurone Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Hyper Misao Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Saki-sama Vs Azusa Takigawa
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miraclians are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Daisuke Sasaki

No word yet on if the main event will be for the Indy World Jr. Title. I expect so if Sasaki beats Diego. Shinichiro Tominaga deserves it after his Amateurs Vs Professionals comparison at the last show.

It’s a Toryumon reunion of sorts for Ken Ohka’s 16th Anniversary.

5. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka Vs X

Yumehito Imanari is inserting himself into the Chikara Vs J-Soul Pandita III IV match with something to prove. He describes Pandita as a creature coming from a wonderful bloodline that stretches back 32 years. But Imanari’s father recently established a new spiritual venture called Rainbow House to heal people’s souls. Imanari finds it a bit odd. He has since visited his father and it felt to him like he was a complete stranger. However he was also impressed by his dad’s newly found vitality. So Imanari wants to spread his dad’s message of posterity and prove how strong the family bloodline is against others. Chikara and Pandita are just the kind of opponents he was looking for.

6. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when Sasaki submitted Honda with La Mistica Cross Facelock (19:23).

Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo continued fighting out of the ring after the main event. As they were pulled apart Takeshita yelled at Endo “At Osaka just remember. Fight fair and square.” Daisuke Sasaki taunted Takeshita and dared him to fight Endo. He said next week Endo will stab the final nail in Takeshita’s coffin. Then on the 25th he and Endo will win the KO-D Tag Team Titles for DAMNATION.

Yoshihiro Takayama & Dick Togo were successful in their first time tagging together. However both of them don’t know if they will continue teaming together in the future. Takayama noted how hard HARASHIMA kicks while Togo thought wrestling against Akito was a fresh experience.

After winning their match Danshoku Dino, Joey Ryan & Yoshihiko declared they are the most dangerous trio the city of Hamamatsu have ever seen. They won by giving Makoto Oishi a triple team Danshoku Driver.

One day away from his DDT Extreme Title shot, Keisuke Ishii remembers when he won the belt for the first time. He was booed back then although in that situation he was an outsider wrestling in Union Pro. He thinks this time when he wins it will be different.

Soma Takao sent a message to Kazuki Hirata by pinning him in the opening tag bout. The AJPW Jr. Heavyweight Champion said Hirata isn’t good enough to help him become a stronger champion.

DDT “CAREER DAIMYO DRAMATIC-KUN 2015”, 20/09/2015
Shizuoka Hamamatsu Create
334 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Kota Umeda when Takao pinned Umeda with the Gin And Tonic (11:43).
2. Joey Ryan defeated Makoto Oishi with the Super Kick (7:51).
3. Antonio Honda & Saki Akai defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Kouki Iwasaki when Honda pinned Iwasaki with a Cradle (11:14).
4. Masa Takanashi defeated Tetsuya Endo with the Takatonic (12:03).
5. Yukio Sakaguchi & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Suguru Miyatake when Sakaguchi pinned Sasaki with a Right High Kick (14:33).
6. HARASHIMA, Akito & Yasu Urano defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when HARASHIMA pinned Hirata with the Somato (13:10).
7. Danshoku Dino defeated Keisuke Ishii with La Ma-Gay-do Clutch (13:31).

The main event saw some shenanigans outside the ring. Ken Ohka tried to interfere but Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao stopped him. Daisuke Kiso got distracted and argued with Irie & Takao, allowing Ohka to sneak into the ring. He went for the Spear on Keisuke Ishii but it was dodged and he hit Danshoku Dino instead. However, Dino recovered and flash pinned Ishii with La Magistral version of the Gay-do Clutch. Ohka claimed that this victory was enough to prove that #OhkaEmpira deserved their upcoming shot at the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Amon Tsurumi reluctantly agreed and confirmed that Drift Vs #OhkaEmpire on 27th September will be a title match.

When Yukio Sakaguchi said he was going to put a stop to Daisuke Sasaki’s momentum, he meant it. Sakaguchi blocked the Vietnam Driver II and knocked out Sasaki with a Right High Kick. Suguru Miyatake had to revive Sasaki by squirting water in his face bukake style after the match. Sasaki told Sakaguchi that this was all part of his strategy and he now knows what Sakaguchi can do to him.

Kota Ibushi was again taken off the show due to poor health. Saki Akai was added to the show as part of the card rearrangement. She and Antonio Honda hatched a plan to beat Pigging 2015. When Kouki Iwasaki climbed the top turnbuckle, Honda yelled at him to stop because he has a cat named Dorothy stuck inside his stomach. Tomomitsu Matsunaga didn’t believe him but suddenly there was cries of “Nyan!” heard around ringside. It turned out to be Akai whispering into the microphone. She apologised when she was caught but still the distraction worked long enough for Honda to pin Iwasaki with a roll up.

Joey Ryan had an asthma attack during his match. His opponent Makoto Oishi stole Ryan’s inhaler beforehand and hid it in his tights. Ryan got revenge when he took out a lollipop from his tights and forced it into Oishi’s mouth.


Union’s Final Harvest, Ganpuro Gets Real Tiger Mask, Who’s Gonna Top DDT?

UNION “UNION HARVEST FESTIVAL 2015”, 15/09/2015
Shin-kiba 1st RING

1. Hiroshi Fukuda Vs Ryu Gouma (w/ Kazuhiko Ogasawara)
2. Mitomi Masayuki & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Madoka & Ayumu Honda
3. Mio Shirai Last Union Match: Mio Shirai & Ladybeard Vs GENTARO & X
4. Union Fly To Everywhere World Title – Three Match Special Rules: Aoi Kizuki (c) Vs Cherry
5. 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: Isami Kodaka, Daichi Kazato, Yusuke Kubo & Masato Shibata Vs FUMA, MEN’S Teioh, Kazushi Miyamoto & SAGAT
6. Last Man Standing Match: Shuji Ishikawa Vs Seiya Morohashi

Shuji Ishikawa Vs Seiya Morohashi is now a Last Man Standing match. This is the kind of pro wrestling where friends who care for one another beat the crap out of each other to prove it.

The Fly To Everywhere Title match between Aoi Kizuki and Cherry will be Best 2 Out Of 3 Falls with each fall having a special rule. The first fall is a 3 Way Match with Miyako Matsumoto also included. Whoever beats Matsumoto first will win the fall. The 2nd fall is a Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match with A.YAZAWA as the special guest referee. If needed, the 3rd and final fall will be a Total 3 Count match. The best I can describe the rule is if you pin your opponent for a two count then your next pin only needs a one count to win. If you pin and get a one count then the next pin needs a two count to win. I’m not entirely sure if three one counts is enough to win or if the amount needed is only based on the previous pin. But the intention here is pinning the opponent for three seconds in total just not necessarily in a row.

This will be Mio Shirai’s final match in Union before she retires on 20th September. Shirai has chosen Kyoko Kimura to be GENTARO’s partner in the match.

Ryu Gouma has admitted defeat in his quest to learn Karate in order to beat Hiroshi Fukuda’s Judo. This last match is not Judo Vs Karate, but American Vs Lawyer.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BAD COMMUNICATION 2015”, 23/09/2015
Shinjuku FACE

1. Animal Planet Special 3 Way Match: J-Soul Pandita III IV Vs Neko Nitta Vs Kris Wolf
2. Do Judge!!: Yukihiro Abe Vs Shinichiro Tominaga

5. Resonance To The Major Sports ~The Real Tiger Mask And Disciple Of Tiger Mask Vs Enjo-gun~: Shuichiro Katsumura & Hayato Mashita Vs Shibata & Mitomi Masayuki
6. Texas Tornado Hardcore Special Handicap Match: Ken Ohka, GENTARO, Shota & Bambi Vs Minoru Fujita, Hi69 & Osamu Namiguchi

Minoru Fujita demanded that the main event will be a Hardcore Match. He also mocked Ganbare☆Wrestling by saying they should worry about Tokyo Joshi Pro outdrawing them in the same building on the same date. Ken Ohka said his team will beat Fujita’s team and they will rehabilitate Fujita out of his bad attitude.

Ganbare☆Wrestling is bringing in a surprise name for this show. The “Real Tiger Mask” Shuichiro Katsumura will wrestle in Ganpuro to help turn it into a major sports company. He will team with Hayato Mashita who was his first opponent in his debut pro wrestling match.

Yumehito Imanari was told that his design of Ganpuro’s new logo plagiarises the logo of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Imanari still denies the claim and even went as far as to print up T-shrts of the new logo to sell at the show. It is too late for Ganpuro to cancel the order so they have no other choice but to sell the shirts once they arrive.

Ken Ohka has wished Kana good luck on her move to WWE. Kana wrestled a match in Ganpuro back in February. She has inspired Ohka to give back to wrestling and for Ganpuro to do its best in Japan while she does the same in America.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? ~DDT DRAMATIC GENERAL ELECTION 2015~”, 27/09/2015
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. King Of Dark Title: Gota Ihashi (c) Vs Sanshiro Takagi
1. Toru Owashi Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata
3. KUDO & Masa Takanashi Vs Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Fukuda
4. Kota Ibushi & Suguru Miyatake Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kota Umeda
5. HARASHIMA, Akito & Yasu Urano Vs Antonio Honda, Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo
6. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao (c) Vs Danshoku Dino, Super Sasadango Machine & Ken Ohka
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki was nominated as the No. 1 Contender by Yukio Sakaguchi himself. With the Vietnam Driver II in his arsenal, Sasaki now thinks he is Earth’s Strongest Man. Sakaguchi may knee that thought straight out of Sasaki’s head.

#OhkaEmpire have impressed and annoyed Team Drift enough to get a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. Danshoku Dino pinned both Keisuke Ishii and Soma Takao yesterday while Ken Ohka is constantly standing up to Shigehiro Irie despite coming off the worse for wear in every encounter. The one wild card is Super Sasadango Machine. He had a secret plan yesterday that he was unable to use because he was quickly eliminated. The upcoming rematch gives him another chance to use it if he wishes.
