DDT “D-KING GRAND PRIX 2018 IN SHIMIZU”, 13/01/2018
Shizuoka Shimizu Marine Bill
235 Fans – No Vacancy

1. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Antonio Honda & Kouki Iwasaki and Daisuke Sasaki, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Oishi pinned Shimatani with the Miracle Ecstasy (10:39).
2. D-King Grand Prix – B Block: Akito (4) defeated Yukio Sakaguchi (4) with the Rolling Jr. Olympic Hell Part I (9:35).
3. D-King Grand Prix – A Block: Joey Ryan (4) defeated Jiro Kuroshio (6) with the Super Kick (10:46).
4. D-King Grand Prix – B Block: Shuji Ishikawa (8) defeated Soma Takao (4) with the Splash Mountain (11:53).
5. D-King Grand Prix – A Block: HARASHIMA (6) defeated Masahiro Takanashi (2) with the Somato (11:41).
6. D-King Grand Prix – B Block: Kazusada Higuchi (6) defeated Mike Bailey (4) with the Doctor Bomb (14:11).
7. D-King Grand Prix – A Block: Keisuke Ishii (6) defeated Tetsuya Endo (7) with the Kneel Kick (17:39).

A Block

1. Tetsuya Endo (7)
2. Keisuke Ishii (6)
-. HARASHIMA (6)
-. Jiro Kuroshio (6)
5. Konosuke Takeshita (5)
6. Joey Ryan (4)
7. Masahiro Takanashi (2)

B Block

1. Shuji Ishikawa (8)
2. Daisuke Sasaki (6)
3. Kazusada Higuchi (6)
-. Mike Bailey (4)
-. Yukio Sakaguchi (4)
-. Soma Takao (4)
-. Akito (4)

The field is getting narrower as the D-King Grand Prix heads towards its final stretch. Tetsuya Endo still leads Block A but his loss to Keisuke Ishii today means he’s only just ahead by a point. Ishii avoided the Shooting Star Press and hit Endo with everything that he could. The Fisherman Buster, Exploder Suplex and Tiger Suplex didn’t work. Endo hit the Tetsuya In The Sky for a last gasp chance but Ishii kicked out. Finally the Kneel Kick from Ishii put Endo away. Ishii said the win means the possibility of becoming the Grand Prix champion is still there for him. He thinks if he beats Konosuke Takeshita tomorrow then he will qualify for the final. Endo needs to beat HARASHIMA to guarantee his spot in the final. A draw leaves his fate up to Ishii versus Takeshita. Endo thinks the only thing missing from his game right now is financial strength. DAMNATION already has cute and popular wrestlers, what they need now is money!

Over in Block B Kazusada Higuchi is still in the fight after beating Mike Bailey. The result could have been different because Bailey hit the Ultima Weapon but took too long to cover Higuchi. When Higuchi recovered he did the Doctor Bomb for the three count. Higuchu admitted he barely survived the match. He hit Bailey many times but it was still in intense battle. Now all that is left is Shuji Ishikawa. Higuchi must beat him to reach the final.

The third wrestler chasing for the top spot in Block A is HARASHIMA. He feels like his nerves are wearing him out but he kept his head clear enough to get past Masahiro Takanashi. HARASHIMA must beat Endo tomorrow and hope Ishii does not beat Takeshita. Takanashi is out of the tournament but he has so much respect for HARASHIMA he will beat Joey Ryan for him.

Ishikawa got back on track with a win over Soma Takao, surviving a surprise attack in the beginning. Ishikawa says his body is big and his mind is strong and motivated. His final opponent Higuchi is one of the few wrestlers in DDT who can match up to his power in a direct fight so he is ready for tomorrow’s collision.

Jiro Kuroshio’s final match in the tournament ended in a loss to Joey Ryan. He went for the Ikemen Clutch but Ryan stuck a lollipop into his mouth and Super Kicked him. He ends his run with 3 wins and 3 losses. Kuroshio is happy with how he did and he wants to appear more for DDT in the future. He said he found something he wants to do here.

Akito busted out the Rolling Olympic Hell I to destroy Yukio Sakaguchi’s chances of reaching the final. Akito thinks his entire performance wasn’t good but he still got a lot out of the Grand Prix. He hopes Takeshita ends up winning the tournament. Sakaguchi is worried that the damage his legs have taken throughout the tournament will prevent him from winning his last match tomorrow.

D-King Grand Prix 2018 Schedule

December 4, 2017

DDT is trying out a round robin tournament to set up the main event of their next Sumo Hall show in March. The D-King Grand Prix will have two blocks both consisting of seven wrestlers. The winners of each block face each other in the final and the tournament champion gets added to the main event of “JUDGEMENT 2018 ~DDT 21ST ANNIVERSARY~”. This is the first round robin DDT has done since the 2010 Young Drama Cup and I think the first on DDT’s main shows since the 2005 KO-D Tag League. Every block match has a 30 minute time limit, I assume the final will have no time limit. Every show during the group stage will have one or two non-tournament matches as well.

A Block

Konosuke Takeshita
HARASHIMA
Keisuke Ishii
Tetsuya Endo
Masahiro Takanashi
Joey Ryan
Jiro Kuroshio

B Block

Daisuke Sasaki
Yukio Sakaguchi
Soma Takao
Akito
Kazusada Higuchi
Mike Bailey
Shuji Ishikawa

DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA IN SHIMIZU ~DRAMATIC DREAM TUNA~” Results

DDT “ROAD TO SUPER ARENA IN SHIMIZU ~DRAMATIC DREAM TUNA~”, 15/01/2017
Shizuoka Shimizu Marine Bill
207 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai when Katsumata pinned Hirata with the Kasadora (10:54).
2. 3 Way Match: Masahiro Takanashi defeated Toru Owashi and Guanchulo when Takanashi pinned Guanchulo with the Coax (8:38).
3. One And Only! The Rare Gay Wrestler Danshoku Dino’s Long Awaited Return Match For The First Time In 11 Days!: Danshoku Dino & Antonio Honda Vs Soma Takao & Mizuki Watase ended in a No Contest (11:27).
4. KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki when KUDO pinned Iwasaki with the Diving Double Knee Drop (13:32).
5. Shizuoka Specialty! Sharp, Sharp, Clear! Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Makoto Oishi with a Short Range Lariat (19:51).
6. Smile Squash Vs DAMNATION!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Akito & Yasu Urano when Sasaki pinned HARASHIMA with the Vietnam Driver II (17:01).

The battles between HARASHIMA and Daisuke Sasaki keep on tilting back and forth. This time Sasaki ended the fight on top, pinning HARASHIMA in the main even 6-Man Tag. He countered a Crucifix into the NOW OR NEVER. Tetsuya Endo followed up with a Swan Dive 450 Splash then Sasaki got the pin with the Vietnam Driver II. After the match Sasaki again lied about wanting to fight fair with HARASHIMA. This time HARASHIMA knew Sasaki was going to kick him low so he caught it. Sasaki acted embarrassed and promised never to do something stupid like that ever again. He even had Endo come over and hold down his right leg so it wouldn’t kick out. This was all a distraction for Sasaki to kick HARASHIMA below the belt with his left leg.

Problems rose between Konosuke Takeshita and Makoto Oishi at the beginning of the show. Both of them wanted to do the opening speech and they proceeded to argue over who sold more T-shirts. Takeshita said that he’s been training non-stop at the gym because he wants to main event at Saitama Super Arena. Oishi replied that he’s been wrestling since before Takeshita was in elementary school and their match later will be the culmination of his 15 year career. They then both stopped dead in their tracks to warmly welcome everyone to the start of the show. After Takeshita beat Oishi in the semi-main event, he apologised for the mean things he said before. He said today they fought the kind of big match he expects to have in Saitama. He hopes when he goes on to win the KO-D Openweight Title there, Oishi’s friends and mother will be there to watch him. Then they can have a title match together for them.

Masahiro Takanashi wasn’t impressed with Team DNA. He thinks the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match will have the same result at today. Total victory for Shuten-dōji!

11 days away from the ring left Danshoku Dino feeling pretty excited to return. His perverted antics got so bad that his return match had to be called off. It was at the point where there was a giant pile on with Yukinori Matsui stuck in the middle when Matsui decided enough was enough.


Dark Side HARASHIMA? MIZUHO Graduates From Tokyo Joshi, BASARA Anniversary

January 14, 2017

6. Smile Squash Vs DAMNATION!: HARASHIMA, Akito & Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

HARASHIMA showed a rare dark side the last time he was in the ring with Daisuke Sasaki. HARASHIMA choked out Sasaki with a Sleeper Hold but it was in retaliation for Sasaki blindsiding him at a previous show. Will Sasaki go for revenge knowing he could risk facing HARASHIMA’s wrath again afterwards?

Saki Akai has created a new Biishiki-gun called SIN Biishiki-gun. The first added member is Martha, her maid. Martha kinda sorta looks like Masahiro Takanashi.

In unfortunate news, MIZUHO “graduated” from Tokyo Joshi Pro during the week. MIZUHO had been absent for most of 2016 when she suffered dizziness during intense training exercises. The source of this problem turned out to be a malfunctioning semicircular canal. She took time off to rest but her condition never recovered. After speaking to her doctor and the Tokyo Joshi staff she decided it was time to end her wrestling career and devote time to treating her condition. MIZUHO apologised to the Tokyo Joshi fans for leaving so suddenly.

The first Korakuen Hall show of the DDT UNIVERSE launch will determine the main event of “JUDGEMENT 2017” in Saitama Super Arena this March. Bad blood is growing between HARASHIMA and Daisuke Sasaki over the KO-D Openweight Title. Meanwhile Konosuke Takeshita and KUDO won their playoff matches to reach the final but only one will get the KO-D Title shot at DDT’s 20th Anniversary.

Yasu Urano spent the last week acting coy about wanting to challenge for the AJPW Jr. Title. He’s now getting what he wants and that’s a title match against Keisuke Ishii. Urano promises to wrestle clean but Ishii doesn’t believe him.

Yeah, DDT thinks getting Dino out there for the match promoting DDT UNIVERSE is the best idea. I mean at this point if you’re subscribing to it you have to know what to expect.
