4. Techanzu Love! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Akito with the Yurikamome (8:29).
5. DDT Brother Team Vs DAMNATION X: Daisuke Sasaki & Hiroshi Yamato defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Sasaki submitted Oishi with the Cross Facelock (11:33).

Sometimes when plans fall apart, creative ideas get to shine. DDT’s solution for cancelling a bunch of shows over fears of the Coronavirus was to record replacement shows in their own dojo. No fans were allowed in so it was all done to be shown live on DDT UNIVERSE.

One of the wrestlers who struggled to wrestle in an empty venue was HARASHIMA. He usually feeds off of the cheering fans. He gathered some momentum thanks to guys like Makoto Oishi and Naomi Yoshimura chanting his name in the background but it just wasn’t the same. Things were looking bleak until “Toru Owashi” entered the room and handed a pair of headphones to HARASHIMA. He put them on and could suddenly hear cheering fans! He went back into the ring like a house on fire but he missed a High Kick and struck Oishi by accident. Daisuke Sasaki then caught Oishi in the Crossface Lock for the submission victory.

Hiroshi Yamato said he was grateful to wrestle today because one of the cancelled shows was supposed to be at his hometown in Chiba. He wants to show the fans that all of the wrestlers will take the initiative and stand in their place one way or another.

Today’s show was also taking place on Akito’s birthday. His birthday gift was a moment to stare lovingly into Tetsuya Endo’s eyes while he was being stretched in the Yurikamome hold. After the match Endo was asked if he felt Akito’s love during that moment. Endo said he only loves his stag and kabuto beetles.

Nautilus seemed to have a better time than others with adjusting to the quiet atmosphere. Yuki Ueno said he could feel the fan support in his heart. Today’s match against Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata was just what he needed. His trips with the DDT Sauna Club lately have felt too well organised and he can’t feel comfortable in the ring if he doesn’t feel tired from working hard.

CDK won a close one over Eruption. The end saw Kazusada Higuchi save Saki Akai from the Praying Mantis Bomb by hitting Chris Brookes with a Lariat. Akai went for the Quetzalcoatl but Masahiro Takanashi grabbed Brookes’s hand to block the move. He then distracted Akai by pinching her nose. Brooke rolled on top of Akai with a Jackknife to grab the win.

The opening match was as lewd as Danshoku Dieno wanted it to be. He was confused during his entrance because there was nobody around to kiss. Keigo Nakamura challenged Dieno to face off with him, declaring that he will try to win the KO-D Openweight Title in the shortest career time in history. Dieno did his thing with Nakamura, Yuki Iino got involved too. On the ring apron, Dieno lifted Nakamura up for a Power Bomb but it was to pass him over to Yukio Naya to do the match winning Brainbuster. Dieno & Naya call this double team move the Grand Cross From Hell.

Maki Itoh is happy to have somebody as pure as Raku teaming with her. She will bring the colour of Itoh out of Raku. Miu Watanabe is still feeling frustrated over losing to Raku recently. The result makes her want to spring into defending the tag titles. Rika Tatsumi started a fight with Itoh which is stronger, Tatsumi’s “diamond hips” or Itoh’s “big head”. Tatsumi is also still bitter over losing a singles match to Itoh last year.

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Chris Brookes (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

After being away from the KO-D Openweight Title scene for a while, Konosuke Takeshita is excited to be chosen as the next challenger. He remembers his dad once renting an FMW video tape with Tanaka’s matches on it. Ever since then Takeshita has followed Tanaka’s career. Now his name will be written into the Reiwa era of Tanaka’s wrestling history. Tanaka was honored to hear this but he still thinks he will beat Takeshita. He is from the land of athletes worthy of being athletes because of his background with Gold’s Gym. When the match takes place, Tanaka will make the fans think he is still strong. He named the four wrestlers he thinks are the symbols of DDT: HARASHIMA, Tetsuya Endo, Daisuke Sasaki and Konosuke Takeshita. Tanaka is one win away from having a clean sweep against all of them.

Sasaki briefly stole the DDT UNIVERSAL Title right after Chris Brookes became the first champion. He gave the belt back and apologised for his thievery. He promised to reflect on his actions and will only claim the title belt by winning it as an athlete. Brookes does not believe Sasaki is being honest. He thinks Sasaki is strange like an old dog. His promise is to put Sasaki out of his misery and maybe even stab him. Brookes warned that their match for the UNIVERSAL Title will not be a true representation of his ring skill. It will be a dirty match on both sides.

A lot more is happening on this show. Naomichu Marufuji returns to wrestle for DISASTER BOX, the Business Alliance of DAMNATION & #STRONGHEARTS are pitted against the newest DDT unit Eruption and 19 year old Hideki Okatani has his debut match.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HERMIT PURPLE 2020”, 21/03/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Kouki Iwasaki

Sometimes having a dominant champion can be boring. Kouki Iwasaki thinks that way about Keisuke Ishii and the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Iwasaki wants to be the strongest wrestler in Ganpro. Beating Ishii and winning the title will make him just that.

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Chris Brookes defeated Konosuke Takeshita with the Death By Roll-Up (19:26).
*Chris Brookes becomes the 1st DDT UNIVERSAL Champion!
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) defeated MAO with the Sliding D (21:49).
*V1 for Masato Tanaka.

Today MAO welcomed Masato Tanaka into his world of fucked up wrestling. The challenger used a lot of what he learned in Europe to keep Tanaka on his toes early in the match. A out of the ring battle had Tanaka take control with a Brainbuster on the floor. MAO got a lucky break when Tanaka accidentally knocked Yukinori Matsui out of the ring with a Lariat. MAO’s friends from the DDT Sauna Club gave him plastic cases and rubber ducks to attack the champion with. He did a Spaceman Plancha out of the ring just to smash a box over Tanaka’s head. MAO then set a table up next to the ring but Tanaka regained control with a Death Valley Driver on the ring apron. Tanaka then put MAO through the table with a Diving Body Press. MAO kept on fighting and even hit the Ultima Weapon as a shoutout to Mike Bailey for a nearfall. MAO did a backflip to avoid the Sliding D but was caught out with a Lariat. Despite his spirited attempt to get back up, Tanaka finished MAO off with the Sliding D.

After the match Tanaka said he enjoyed MAO’s weird wrestling style. He also explained that he won the match today because he hid some of the rubber ducks in his tights, guarding his waist from MAO’s attacks! It turns out Tanaka was inspired by MAO’s weirdness to try something weird himself and it worked. Tanaka wants to do more weird wrestling with MAO some day. The two shook hands and MAO left the ring while Tanaka waited to find out what he’s doing next.

None of the Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders came out so Hisaya Imabayashi decided the next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be on 20th March. He asked Tanaka if there was someone he wanted to fight. Tanaka did. He called out Konosuke Takeshita! When Tanaka entered DDT he had three wrestlers in particular that he wanted to fight. He already went through HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo. Now Takeshita is next, it doesn’t matter that he lost his match earlier in the show. Tanaka has won the D-Ou Grand Prix, became the KO-D Champion and just now defended it. If Takeshita thinks he is at the top of DDT then he should fight Tanaka. If he doesn’t have the confidence then he should get out of here. Takeshita accepted the challenge. He respects Tanaka as both a wrestler and a trainer at Gold’s Gym so he would like to fight him for the title.

Takeshita’s defeat that Tanaka mentioned was of course the DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. The allure of being the first champion of this brand new title pushed Takeshita and Chris Brookes to take bigger risks. Brookes laid Takeshita across two railings near the entrance and Double Stomped Takeshita through the gap. Later Takeshita hit an Avalanche Air Raid Crash onto the turnbuckle. Brookes kicked out of the Fable and went into a back and forth with his opponent. It ended with Brookes all of a sudden pinning Takeshita with Death By Roll-Up, that Figure 4 Backwards Bridge pin that’s been used more and more across the wrestling scene lately. Brookes is now the 1st DDT UNIVERSAL Champion!

Sadly Brookes did not get much time to celebrate. His victory speech was cut short by an ambush from Daisuke Sasaki! He had lost that Saitama Super Arena Sword earlier in the show and figured that he should get a title belt to replace it. So he stole the UNIVERSAL Title from Brookes! However Sasaki handed the title to a reporter backstage because he doesn’t want to be a thief. This little stunt was just a warning. Sasaki said that Brookes never got his permission to come live in Japan! When Brookes got his belt back he called Sasaki a stupid wrestler.

The Saitama Super Arena Sword did leave Sasaki’s grasp but it still belongs to a DAMNATION wrestler at the end of the day. The Business Alliance between DAMNATION and #STRONGHEARTS was victorious over ALL OUT and Chihiro Hashimoto in the Elimination Tag Match. Hashimoto was eliminated along with El Lindaman when Yuki Iino Speared the both of them off the ring apron. Sasaki lost the Sword to Akito when Akito pinned him right after Sasaki pinned Iino. But Endo and T-Hawk stood tall together and had Akito beaten. Endo made Akito submit, meaning that Endo now holds claim to the Sword and the Saitama Super Arena main event spot! That’s not all. We were told that the alliance between these two units will spread all across the world from Japan to America to Mexico to Europe. Puma King is partnering with them in Mexico for example. But there is one place where #STRONGHEARTS have not been in yet. Saitama Super Arena! They asked Imabayashi to book them for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”. He eventually agreed to it after some back and forth about keeping their schedules good and proper.

The DAMNATION/#STRONGHEARTS alliance had a good day across the card with CIMA & Soma Takao also winning a 3 Way Tag Match. The crowd gave Takao “BIMA” chants, referencing his gimmick from his college club wrestling days. Some of his opponents even called him that as a joke. Takao got the last laugh by using the Mad Splash to pin Makoto Oishi. CIMA even used the Venus & Iconoclasm combo to set it up.

For the safety of the audience during the Coronavirus epidemic, all of the wrestlers in Match #3 were given special protective masks to wear while they wrestled. The masks were used specifically for this match because it would also stop Danshoku Dieno from doing the Lip Lock. The protective masks were all Super Sasadango Machine masks which led to the wrestlers getting confused and losing track over who they were supposed to fight. During the confusion, Dieno noticed that there were more people in the ring than a 3 Vs 3 Match is supposed to have. Everyone took off their mask and found out the man in the middle of the ring was a complete stranger. They asked who he was and the lights went out. When they came back on the ring was empty and the show continued like nothing happened.

Saki Akai was surprised to find out that Miranda Gordy was in attendance. She came out after the Eruption match and interrupted Akai’s promotion for their match in Nagoya tomorrow. Gordy asked for a handshake but then kicked Akai and attempted to Power Bomb her. Kazusada Higuchi and Yukio Sakaguchi came to the rescue and Gordy fled the ring, saying “See you tomorrow” to Akai as she walked away. Akai complained that Gordy does not know Japanese courtesy.

The opening 3 Way Match did not last long. Keigo Nakamura was able to get Yukio Naya out of the ring but he was quickly flattened by Mad Paulie afterward.

Shunma Katsumata had his first match back from surgery today. Imabayashi gave him a welcome back gift. It is a No DQ Match against Maku Donaruto on 3rd March!

Sakaguchi & Iino were revealed as the new producers for YaroZ. Their first message is they will accept any wrestlers who want to graduate from BOYZ because YaroZ is the more exciting place to be.

The newest DDT trainee to make his debut is Hideki Okatani. The 19 year old will have his first match on 20th March. He said he will do his best to get his first win over a senior wrestler as soon as possible.

Another fresh face to show up today is DDT’s new ring announcer Kazunori Kosuge.

A bunch of special guest names were announced for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” on 7th July. Kenny Omega, Naomichi Marufuji and Meiko Satomura will all be there!

As a preview for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, a special Street Wrestling match will be held at Saitama Super Arena on 11th March.

Miyu Yamashita and Natsumi Maki continue their series of singles matches. Yamashita was happy with Maki’s performance in their previous match. Now she will see if Maki has gotten even better in the third match.

Yuka Sakazaki will not be at the show. The popular guess online as to why is she may be on the next AEW PPV happening in Chicago the same weekend.

Several members of Homoiro Clover Z came gathered together for a special reunion. There was Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi, Akito, KUDO, Hiroshi Fukuda and even Yoshihiko playing the role of Kota Ibushi all turning up. With the power of pop music, HomoClo won the main event with everyone getting involved. Fukuda knocked away HARASHIMA, KUDO gave Mizuki Watase a Buzzsaw Kick and Yoshihiko hit Keisuke Ishii with the Kamigoye. Oishi then pinned Watase with the Luminous Press.

Their victory celebration was interrupted by a familiar song. “ωe are the HERO!!” played as MAO & Shunma Katsumata walked out representing NωA! They came out calling themselves the only real idol unit in the history of DDT. Oishi was conflicted. Here he is with HomoClo but he is a part of NωA too. The two units had a tug of war over Oishi until he came up with an idea. Homoiro Clover Z and NωA will fight over who gets Oishi on the 26th March BOYZ show.

Keigo Nakamura’s audition for BOYZ began with him singing “Young Man” for his entrance. Hiroshi Yamato then showed him how it was really done by singing “BURN” and wrestling in a fancy suit.

Problems began to surface between Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Missed attacks and forced tags made it seem like they were going to break up. But they were able to solve their problem and reconcile.

Raku begins her quest to win a match. Miu Watanabe won’t go light on her just because they are both Up Up Girls.

A bunch of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster had cameos on the latest episode of the CBS cop drama S.W.A.T. I’m not making this up. Miyu Yamashita fights a detective inside Robot Restaurant while Shoko Nakajima tries to pull a gun on the guy from Better Off Ted. I swear I’m not making this up!

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs MAO

MAO said he is honored to be competing for the KO-D Openweight Title less than 5 years into his pro wrestling career. Masato Tanaka has been wrestling since before MAO was born. MAO saw him for the first time on TV Asahi’s “World Pro Wrestling” television program back in 2010. He thinks Tanaka is one of the people who made him dream of becoming a pro wrestler so this will be a very special match. Also MAO believes the core of DDT is now made up of the DNA generation with Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo right in the centre. Winning the KO-D Title will make MAO join the centre. Tanaka wants MAO to deliver his strange brand of wrestling because he does not want to lose against that style.

The #STRONGHEARTS return to continue their business partnership with DAMNATION. They face ALL OUT with their honorary member Chihiro Hashimoto in an Elimination Tag match. Hopefully Yuki Iino has gotten over his problems with Hashimoto. Also Shunma Katsumata is back from his minor surgery. Elsewhere CIMA teams up with Soma Takao, who used to wrestle as BIMA in his college club days.

DDT “ISN’T IT DRAMATIC 2020”, 24/02/2020

3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Danshoku Dieno & Cody Hall

Hall joined forces with Danshoku Dieno to form The Hole Brothers. This is all part of Dieno’s plan to win every championship he can in DDT. The first target in his sight is the KO-D Tag Titles held by Nautilus.

A sudden challenge has been made by Nagoya wrestler Kengo Takai. He is bringing a team with him to take on a selection of DDT wrestlers.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs X
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

The #STRONGHEARTS/DAMNATION alliance continue with a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. This all seems to be Tetsuya Endo’s idea. His work with T-Hawk & El Lindaman lately has worked out so far.

CIMA and Maku Donaruto will be on the show. Put them in the same match. Don’t put Donaruto with Yuni!

FUMA, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Kouki Iwasaki will be on the show.

Aichi NGK Sports Plaza 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

The first meeting was a decisive win for Miyu Yamashita. She welcomes the rematch with Natsumi Maki but only if Maki is fully motivated for it. Whether it is because of ring rust or a mental block, the version of Maki she defeated was not the one who was top tier in the roster before her injury.

Saki Akai will be on the show.

2. Soma Takao Vs Yuki Iino

A group of the DDT wrestlers like to visit saunas together during their free time during tours. Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno usually tweet about their sauna adventures using the hashtag #DDTサウナ部. Their bond has grown so strong that they now will team up for matches. Sadly Katsumata is currently out of action getting a metal plate removed from his cheekbone so he has to miss this one.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

The theme of Gake no Fuchi in 2020 is “I Want To Help Those Who Are In Need With Pro Wrestling”. Miyako Matsumoto is continuing this theme by using pro wrestling to find a potential bride for Chikara. This came about when Chikara took part in a rap battle and owned himself by admitting he can’t get married. The “bride” in question is Mao from the idol group Senosister. She describes herself as the Atsushi Onita of the idol world, having attended a Super FMW show in 2016 and getting Onita’s “holy water” thrown at her. She saw a picture of Chikara and was turned off because he looks like her uncle. Nevertheless, she agreed to attend the next show because her rent is due and she wants the money. Munenori Sawa was also invited to help out.
