1. Special 10-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Fuminori Abe, Ken Ohka & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Tetsuya Endo, Antonio Honda, Ryota Nakatsu, Shuichiro Katsumura & Miyu Yamashita when Takeshita pinned Honda with the Fable (18:28).

DDT wanted to celebrate the end of Japan’s Heisei era and the beginning of the Reiwa era so they brought together the best of the best to their new dojo in Ochanomizu. The plan was to do a special 10-Man Tag match that started before the clock struck midnight and ended in the early hours of the morning. On one side was the team of champions from each brand in the DDT family. We had the KO-D Openweight Champion Tetsuya Endo and DDT Extreme Champion Antonio Honda representing DDT. BASARA was represented by the Union MAX Champion Ryota Nakatsu. The Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Shuichiro Katsumura represented Ganbare☆Wrestling and the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion Miyu Yamashita was there for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The other team was made up of established non-champions from the same brands. There was Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA for DDT, Fuminori Abe for BASARA, Ken Ohka for Ganpro and finally Yuka Sakazaki for Tokyo Joshi.

Before the match began the champion team posed for a group photo, which annoyed their opponents. Honda quickly tripped on the ropes and injured his leg. He was about to declare his retirement due to injury but first wanted to tell his story of Gongitsune. It was all a ruse for Honda to poke everyone on the other team in the eyes. When the match got going we got plenty of unusual pairings like Endo against Sakazaki, Yamashita against Ohka and Nakatsu against Takeshita. The ending came when Abe stopped Honda’s Diving Fist Drop with a Rabbit Punch. Ohka hit Honda with the Fire Spear, Sakazaki landed the Magical Girl Splash and HARASHIMA followed up with a Swan Dive Body Press. With Honda all but out, Takeshita finished him off with the Fable to win the last match of Heisei and the first match of Reiwa!

Endo didn’t want to stick around afterwards and quickly left the ring when the match was over. The rest stayed behind and gave out thank you messages of support to the audience watching on DDT UNIVERSE.

The main event lasted all thirty minutes and ended without a winner. Still, Keisuke Ishii was happy with the result and said it was great to make friends with the other wrestlers today. Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki thought they had the match won when they isolated Minoru Fujita. They hit him with the Kneel Kick, a Dragon Suplex, a Tiger Suplex and then a Moonsault but Fujita kicked out! Shuichiro Katsumura then trapped Iwasaki in the Cross Armbreaker when the bell rang to end the match in a draw. Fujita didn’t want himself or Katsumata to raise their hands along with Ishii & Iwasaki because he saw it as an admittance of defeat. Katsumura however convinced Fujita to join in.

The show ended with a 13 Vs 1 Handicap Match between Ken Ohka against everybody else on the card. Ohka was able to eliminated mostly everyone by throwing them out of the ring but HARUKAZE hid until he was the last one left and eliminated him from behind. She won the prize pack of melons that was originally meant to be given to the winners of the main event tag match. Ohka was given a lethally spicy chili pepper as a booby prize.

“Sunrise”, “GRAND SWORD”, “J”, “HOLD OUT” and “Subconsciousness” were the songs played during the Lariat Pro Wrestling match. The last one isn’t associated with Lariats but that didn’t stop Yuna Manase from doing the pose and screaming “Yeaoh!”

Ohka wanted to do the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex in the joshi match but his own tag partner Moeka Haruhi stopped him because “it is Miss Toyota’s move.” Haruhi then kicked Ohka below the belt and HARUKAZE pinned him with a School Boy. Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Cherry kicked Ohka out of the ring afterwards but he had to get back in because the Lariat match was next.

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs HEAT-UP All Out 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match: TAMURA, Hiroshi Watanabe, Daisuke Kanehira & Keito Murota defeated Ken Ohka, Shota, Kouki Iwasaki & Shuhei Washida (19:51).

4e. Kouki Iwasaki eliminated TAMURA by Ring Out (17:37).
4f. Daisuke Kanehira eliminated Kouki Iwasaki by Ring Out (19:51).

Today HEAT-UP was victorious over Ganbare☆Wrestling! The main event was an 8-Man Elimination Tag Match between the two promotions. Ganpro suffered a major blow early on when Ken Ohka was pushed off the top rope by TAMURA, eliminating him three minutes in. Hirohsi Watanabe pinned Shota with a Leg Roll Clutch but Shota was able to clasp onto Watanabe’s arms and pin his shoulders down in the process, resulting in a double pinfall. Kouki Iwasaki got rid of Keito Murota with a Crab Hold and Daisuke Kanehira pinned Shuhei Washida with a Knee Strike minutes later. It was all up to Iwasaki but even thought he got to eliminate TAMURA, Kanehira sent him packing to win the match for HEAT-UP.

As the promotion’s champion, Kanehira was going to announce the next show to take place in Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR but Ohka interrupted him. TAMURA tried to calm Ohka down by telling him it’s time for the next generation led by Kanehira and Iwasaki to take over. TAMURA suggested that he and Ohka should retire right away but Ohka stopped him. HEAT-UP were given the chance to give the show closing speech but it devolved into another brawl between the two sides. Kanehira got the last words in and said BASEMENT MON☆STAR is heating up!

Since Keisuke Ishii and Yumehito Imanari are both hosting their own shows later today they faced off here. Ishii won with the Tiger Suplex and then the Double Arm Neck Lock.

Ohka announced early in the show that Moeka Haruhi was unable to appear today. Haruhi was standing beside him when he said this. She was “replaced” by the debuting “Reiwa”-ko. Haruhi was made to wrestle in different novelty masks that were bought from Don Quijote as the match went on.

Choun-Shiryu was given permission to use his weapons during his match with Shuichiro Katsumura. In return Katsumura put on heavy MMA gloves and they absorbed the impact from Shiryu’s Double Stomp. Katsumura gave him a Fisherman Buster then made him submit to the Ninja Choke.

I missed this but on 2nd April DDT announced that Keisuke Okuda will resign from the company at the end of the month and become a freelancer. His contract with DDT was originally just a one year contract but it turned out to be the shortest contract in the company’s history. Okuda is grateful for the opportunities DDT gave to him when he left IGF last year and he’s been a fan of the company since he was in junior high but he wants to move his career in a different direction and go on a new adventure. Okuda wants his big match before he leaves to be against Yukio Sakaguchi.

“Absolute” Ricky Starks is from Louisiana, USA and has been wrestling since 2012. Mike Rollins is from Ontario, Canada and has been wrestling since 2007. Rollins is normally a mild person but during matches he can switch personalities and turn into a mad man named “Psycho” Mike.

The current Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders are Kazuki Hirata (blue) and Keisuke Ishii (yellow).

Ishii has also added himself and Ken Ohka into the Lariat Match. He thinks the gimmick is so much fun that he wants to get involved too.

Lastly as if the show wasn’t enough of a rib on Ken Ohka, Ishii has added him to the 90’s joshi tribute match. Ohka has promised to do the Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex in that match.

4. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs X

It must have been fate for Tetsuya Endo to win the KO-D Openweight Title in New York. He was only there for around three days but to him it’s been three years and he has become a true born and raised New Yorker in that time. He wants to become the same kind of foreign KO-D Champion that Kenny Omega and El Generico were. To kick off his title reign, Endo is going to nominate his first challenger for a title defence on 28th April. He wants to pick an opponent he can beat 100 times out of 100. There is concerns among DDT management that Endo’s new American diet of hamburgers will result in him losing the high level physique that he’s been so proud of keeping up until now.

HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda will announce their stipulation match for the DDT Extreme Title on 16th April.

The Lucha Libre Classica match is supposedly going to take place in a hexagon shaped ring and wrestlers can be disqualified if they use a rope break five times. This stipulation was used once in a match between Sanshiro Takagi and Masahiro Takanashi for the Extreme Title back in 2008. Takagi wants Makoto Oishi to experience this match and convey the charm of llave wrestling.

Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
168 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Special 6-Man Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii, Takeshi Okada & Mitsuo Momota defeated Kouki Iwasaki, Chikara & Shuhei Washida when Ishii submitted Washida with a Double Arm Neck Lock (8:02).
2. Heisei Last GanJo Special Tag Match: “Showa”-ko (Bambi) & “Heisei”-ko (Cherry) defeated Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE when “Showa”-ko pinned HARUKAZE with the Omata (11:48).
3. Tiger Vs Dragon: Shuichiro Katsumura & Shota defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura when Shota submitted Shimomura with the Sharpshooter (9:59).
4. The Challenge Of Cameraman Imanari: Yumehito Imanari Vs Minoru Fujita ended in a Double Knockout (18:08).
5. Union Pro Wrestling Memoirs! Daihyo Vs Daihyo, Single Match Of Fate ~ No DQ Match: Isami Kodaka defeated Ken Ohka with the Isamuashi Zan (15:14).

The first singles match between Ken Ohka and Isami Kodaka in many, many years (only one I could find happened in 2007) was a bloody one. It was revealed at the start of the show that the match was now No Disqualifications. Ohka’s head got bloodied when Kodaka threw him into the ring post outside. Kodaka then caused more damage by focusing on the head wound. Ohka returned the favour and busted Kodaka open before hitting him with the Spear Of Fire. Ohka hit a Superplex but Kodaka fired back with a Top Rope Frankensteiner. Kodaka then used a Wrist Clutch to get behind Ohka and hit him with a Knee Strike to the back of the head. That left Ohka as a sitting duck for the Isamuashi Zan.

After the match Kodaka joked that Ohka needs just a little bit more wrestling practice. He also brought up that the first thing he noticed when he showed up in Ganbare☆Wrestling was the enthusiastic atmosphere in the room because of the Ganpro fans. They shook hands and Kodaka declared that Sento Minzoku will withdraw from Ganpro. The feud is over. Kodaka then saw Cherry standing in the corner of the room and said he wanted Naomi Susan to be at the show today too. Kodaka finished his promo by saying even though he lost to Ryota Nakatsu in BASARA, he won’t give up and will climb back up to the top of the independents one more time! Finally, Ohka should call him if he has any problems. Ohka invited him for a drink but Kodaka turned him down because he has a match in K-DOJO tomorrow to prepare for. When Sento Minzoku left, Ohka praised Shuichiro Katsumura & Shota for winning their match against Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura earlier. Ganpro may have ultimately lost the feud but the group will continue to wrestle otherwise there will be no growth for them.

There was one other notable result in the Ganpro Vs Sento Minzoku feud. Yumehito Imanari wasn’t able to beat Minoru Fujita but he didn’t lose either. After a hard fought battle, a strike exchange left both wrestlers down on the mat. Imanari didn’t have enough strength to get back up so instead he used all of his remaining energy to clasp onto Fujita’s leg and keep him from getting up too, resulting in both men getting counted out and the match ending in a Double Knockout. Fujita was confused but he accepted the result because he had no strength left to stand without any support.

Bambi returned to Ganpro in the guise of her old gimmick “Showa”-ko. She wore a mask and a school gym outfit. Cherry joined in by becoming “Heisei”-ko. She wore a sailor uniform and had her face painted to look like heavy ganguro makeup. It looks veeeeery dodgy without context so let’s just leave it at that.
