Three of the seven shows in the D-Ou Grand Prix group stage are now completed. But the headline match was all about the hometown hero Hiroshi Yamato. Everyone in the match did the X pose with their arms to mimic Yamato’s Sliding X move. Minoru Tanaka did the move into Shunma Katsumata’s crotch in the corner. Jiro Kuroshio did an X shaped Double Axe Handle to Yamato. HARASHIMA came in on a hot tag until Konosuke Takeshita stopped him with a Blue Thunder Bomb. The match came down to Yamato and Katsumata. Yamato hit the Sliding X, a Spider German Suplex, a German Suplex and a Lariat. After all of that Yamato was able to pin Katsumata with a Northern Lights Bomb at the end. Yamato talked about his 10th Anniversary show from two years ago. He couldn’t wrestle on it because he was injured at the time. Today he was able to wrestle in his hometown thanks to the local fanbase and also the DDT wrestlers that he considers his seniors. He would like to continue exciting the different regions DDT holds shows in.

In the Grand Prix, Yukio Sakaguchi’s match today was even quicker than yesterday’s. However this time he came out on the loser’s end. Daisuke Sasaki played dirty by hiding behind the referee, having Mad Paulie grab Sakaguchi’s foot and kicking Sakaguchi below the belt to roll him up for the three count. Sakaguchi cursed the result because Sasaki beat him the same way back in the King Of DDT tournament earlier this year.

The undefeated Masato Tanaka is now speeding ahead of everyone else in the B Block. His victory over Bull James means he is currently two wins ahead of his closest rivals. Tanaka couldn’t match the strength of James so he tried to attack him with chairs around ringside. James withstood the attack and brought him back into the ring, taking control when Tanaka could not Body Slam him. James kicked out of the Super Fly but missed a Hip Drop. That left him vulnerable for the Sliding D, handing Tanaka the win. James felt it was an an honour to wrestle Tanaka. He said Tanaka fought for the ECW World Heavyweight Title 20 years ago and he still has that same strength 20 years later.

Yuki Iino gets his first win in a big way, hitting two Spears to put Tetsuya Endo away. Does this mean Iino has become stronger? If you ask Endo he would say no. Instead Endo believes it is he who is getting weaker. Iino’s next group match is against Chris Brookes. He does not want to fight him for 30 minutes like Endo did.

Brookes received a 30kg bag of rice for winning the Battle Royal.

Is this Rika Tatsumi’s last chance to bring Hyper Misao back? She has an idea to do something for her one on one match with Misao. What on earth could it be?

Marika Kobashi will be in attendance to give an update on her status. She has been absent from Tokyo Joshi Pro since the summer to study for her university entrance exam.

The BASARA generation rivalry between Daiki Shimomura and Takato Nakano has come to this. They will face off in a three fall match with a combined 61 minute time limit. It is a stipulation so big that it will main event the show.

The other two matches will heavily feature crowd participation. The audience will randomly choose who teams with who in Match #1. For Match #2 Isami Kodaka and Masato Kamino will only be allowed to use moves pulled out of a box by members of the audience.

Tetsuo Usui is a new trainee for BASARA. Can’t find any details about him yet.

DDT “D-OU GRAND PRIX 2020 THE FINAL!!”, 28/12/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kazusada Higuchi Return Match: Kazusada Higuchi Vs X
2. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 2nd Match: Sakura Hirota Vs Saki Akai
3. Toshiwasure! Special Single Match: Shinya Aoki Vs Super Sasadango Machine
4. D-Ou Grand Prix 2020 – Final: Winner Of A Block vs Winner Of B Block

One of the upsets of the year happened when Super Sasadango Machine pinned Shinya Aoki last weekend. Even Sasadango has been struggling to believe it was a deserved victory. He does comedy so much that he can’t tell if he has some legitimate wrestling ability anymore. To find out if Sasadango actually has skill in the ring he will face Aoki in a singles match. If he hits the Lehmann Shock three times in a row again then nobody can question the result.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. New Year! Special 3 Way Match: Sanshiro Takagi Vs Danshoku Dieno Vs Super Sasadango Machine

DDT kicks off the 2020 schedule with three of their classic wrestlers facing off against each other.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Maki Itoh (c) Vs Hikari Noa
2. Princess Of Princess Title: Yuka Sakazaki (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

Hikari Noa convinced Maki Itoh to give her an International Princess Title shot. She wants to win the title and defend it against Natsumi Maki when she returns from injury. Maybe it’s out of jealousy or maybe it is out of respect but Itoh accepted the challenge and wants it at the big 4th January show at Korakuen Hall.

DDT “WRESTLE SHIOKONBU! 2020”, 12/01/2020
Osaka City Suminoe Maikon Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs X

There will be no more title matches in DDT until January. I bet the D-Ou Grand Prix group stage will determine some challengers for HARASHIMA.

DDT “WRESTLE TOROROKOBU! 2020”, 13/01/2020
Osaka City Suminoe Maikon Hall

1. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs X, X & X

ALL OUT’s position in DDT has been weakened now that Konosuke Takeshita is no longer the KO-D Openweight Champion. An attempt from Yuki Iino to win the belt failed and Shunma Katsumata hasn’t been able to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles whenever he had the chance to. All they have to fight for at the moment is the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

DDT “SWEET DREAMS! 2020”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs X

It’s possible that the D-Ou winner could challenge HARASHIMA here but that is not a guarantee.

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Shinya Aoki, Shunma Katsumata & Yukio Naya when Takagi pinned Katsumata with the Himawari Bomb onto a Chair (13:44).

11 years ago DDT held a pro wrestling match inside of the Inoo Book Store in Tokyo. It was one of the earliest times DDT put together a Street Pro Wrestling match. Today to celebrate the launch of Sanshiro Takagi’s new book it was time to go back to Inoo and do it all again!

The participants entered the book store all wearing the employee aprons. Yuki Ueno and Shunma Katsumata started off the match. They tagged in Naomi Yoshimura and Yukio Naya to do some power spots inside the room. Then Takagi and Shinya Aoki tagged in and traded holds until Aoki got a nearfall with a European Clutch.

With the opening tradeoffs out of the way it was time to take the match outside. Takagi and Aoki brawled down a side street while Ueno threw Katsumata into the store’s wall. Ueno and Katsumata fought up a stairway and Ueno Suplexed Katsumata down the steps.

Takagi and Aoki found nearby chairs and had a duel in the middle of the street. Aoki invited Keigo Nakamura to help him out but Nakamura’s High Kick hit Aoki as well as Takagi. Aoki took out his anger on Nakamura by choking him out next to a vending machine.

Naya brought out a table and placed both Yoshimura and Takagi on top of it. He held them down so Katsumata could climb a ladder and hit a Diving Double Knee Drop on them through the table! Katsumata went for the pin but Ueno broke it up with a chair.

Ueno then climbed on top of a vending machine and did a Moonsault onto everyone below.

Katsumata climbed onto a book rack to do a dive of his own but Takagi caught him with a Stunner on the way down.

Takagi placed the chairs together and threw Katsumata down onto them with the Himawari Bomb for the three count.

After the match Takagi thanked Aoki for coming to take part. Aoki flew in from Singapore just 2 hours before the match took place. Takagi also thanked the book store for letting them wrestle inside. He thanked the book company for releasing his new book and got everyone to chant for a reprint. Around 50 or 60 people showed up so Takagi thinks that is around 180,000 yen in book sales so far. But he doesn’t care about that right now. He now wants Bookstore Pro Wrestling to be an annual event!
