DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2018 ~SHUTEN-DOJI & HARASHIMA DAY~”, 01/08/2018
Shinjuku FACE
546 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Danshoku Dieno (Gorgeous Matsuno) defeated Brahman Shu, Brahman Kei & Gorgeous Matsuno (Danshoku Dieno) when HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno with the Somato (8:13).
2. NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Gatoh Move: Sakisama, Martha & Yoshikosama defeated Emi Sakura, Riho & Mei Suruga when Martha pinned Suruga with a Cradle (16:20).
-. Secret Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated DJ Nira by Disqualification when Nira attacked the referee (6:13).
3. Shuten-dōji Vs Hebikai Tensai!: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated JARASHIMA, Hoshihebi & Kazusada Jaguchi (w/ Poison Sawada JULIE) when KUDO pinned Hoshihebi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (11:39).

Poison Sawada JULIE made his presence felt throughout the show by poisoning several wrestlers with his Snake Magic. After every match some of the wrestlers would raise a toast and drink a beer then they could collapse because the beer was spiked! JULIE would then send his minions Hoshihebi and Kazusada Jaguchi out to grab the unconscious people and carry them backstage so they would be transformed into JULIE’s snake warriors. What was JULIE’s ultimate goal? Why, to perform a big song and dance number in the main event of course! Shuten-dōji came to the rescue and fought against JULIE’s team with a special No Tag Rule added at the last minute. JULIE interfered by using his Snake Magic until a mistaken Clothesline from Jaguchi knocked him off the apron. From there the Shuten-dōji team fought back and grabbed the victory. JULIE accepted defeat and promised to give everyone the antidote to turn them back to normal. KUDO appreciated JULIE’s decision and he thanked him for his role in making DDT bigger by adding a fantasy element to the promotion. Masahiro Takanashi also said it was fun to hear the rattles of the snake magic again. Everyone turned back to normal except for Sayaka Obihiro because there was none left for her. Nobody was bothered by that.

Yukio Sakaguchi was surprised to learn there was a secret match prepared for him against DJ Nira. Some of the antics Nira used included attacking Sakaguchi with an umbrella and sitting down everytime Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee. Nira then used a bizarre submission hold that involved making Sakaguchi fall down on one knee so Nira can put all of his weight on the other knee by standing on it. When Yukinori Matsui moved in to check if Sakaguchi would give up, Sakaguchi lifted Nira off of his knee and onto Matsui’s knee. This put Matsui in so much pain that he ended the match without a winner.

As usual NEO Biishiki-gun thought their opponents were a bunch of garbage, except for Riho. Sakisama sees something special in her that is different from everyone else. Emi Sakura told the rest of the Gatoh Move team how frustrating it is to lose. She put the blame entirely on Mei Suruga and said if she is garbage then she better get cleaned up.

Danshoku Dieno and Gorgeous Matsuno bumped heads and swapped bodies at the start of the show. So for the opener we had Dieno wrestling as Matsuno and Matsuno wrestling as Dieno. This is happening along with the usual Brahman Brothers shenanigans by the way. They hit heads again after the match and returned to normal after HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno (Dieno) with the Somato.

Kendo Kashin is bringing in a team of IGF wrestlers to challenge for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles. However even he is convinced that they cannot win the championships after watching ALL OUT successfully defend them on Tuesday. He wants a golf style handicap put in place to make up for the skills mismatch. Kashin has requested for the IGF team to also include Sanshiro Takagi, Ken Ohka and Yukinori Matsui to make it a 6 Vs 3 match.

Rika Tatsumi suffered a fractured ulnar in her left arm during this weekend’s show. It is currently unknown if she needs surgery but she will definitely miss this show.

There is trouble in NEO Biishiki-gun and it’s led to a revolt! Azusa Christie has had enough of Martha being too close to Sakisama. In response Sakisama thinks Christie’s jealousy should be “treated” by her doctor. However Yukio Saint Laurent has turned on the fair lady and suggests Christie should do the same. The two sides are in conflict and will meet in the ring to solve it.

*Antonio Honda wins Akito’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
2. 3 Way Match: Kouki Iwasaki defeated Mad Paulie and Yuki Iino when Iwasaki pinned Iino with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster (6:00).
*Kouki Iwasaki wins Yuki Iino’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
3. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated Facade & Mizuki Watase when Takeshita pinned Facade with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (13:26).
4. Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Kota Umeda defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Umeda pinned Hirata with a School Boy (0:33).
4a. Rematch: Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Kota Umeda defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Umeda pinned Hirata with an Asai DDT (11:06).
5. KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Sakaguchi pinned Shimatani with the God’s Right Knee (10:43).
6. Shirioshi City Is Number One! No, It Is Osaki City! It Is Seijo In A Way! Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated MAO with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (14:46).
7. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara defeated HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno when Irie pinned Ueno with the Beast Bomber (19:12).

Shigehiro Irie dared HARASHIMA to cash in his Right To Challenge Gauntlet. HARASHIMA ignored him and left ringside after the match. Irie credited Sammy Guevara for giving everyone a wonderful fight in the main today.

MAO couldn’t beat Tetsuya Endo but on the bright side he was able to see Endo’s possible limitations. Even though Endo is a high flyer he does more than just dive. So the obvious tactic of targeting the knees won’t be enough for MAO to beat him. Still, MAO thinks he scored 80 out of 100 points today. He will need to score all 100 if he wants to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles.

Nobuhiro Shimatani tried to assert himself to impress DAMNATION by facing Shuten-dōji head on. All that did was make him get beaten up easily. Shimatani later tried to hit the God’s Right Knee on Yukio Sakaguchi but missed. Sakaguchi hit him with the proper version of the move to end the match.

Kazuki Hirata claimed to have a new finishing move called the Hirata DDT that he wanted to show off. Danshoku Dieno spoiled it by telling everybody it was the Asai DDT. Kota Umeda then pinned Hirata in 30 seconds. Hirata blamed having sunburn for losing so quickly. It was enough for the match to get restarted. Umeda did the Asai DDT himself to pin Hirata again. After the second match Hirata tried to talk himself up but he then collapsed from exhaustion. Umeda gently kicked Hirata to check if he was ok then called for an intermission.


DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSU BRIDGE~” Results

June 30, 2018

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOGETSU BRIDGE~”, 30/06/2018
Kyoto KBS Hall
360 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Keisuke Ishii defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Kneel Kick (6:46).
2. Lucha Libre Rules: Takatimo Dragon, Washitimo Dragon & Hiratimo Dragon defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata by Disqualification when Takeshita unmasked Hiratimo (9:51).

5. P Playful Series: Danshoku Dieno defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Danshoku Driver (9:58).
6. Shigehiro Irie & Sammy Guevara defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Guevara pinned Oishi with the 630 Splash (10:52).
7. Saki Akai 3rd Local Triumph! Kyoto Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Antonio Honda & Yoshiko when Sakaguchi pinned Honda with the Right Knee Of God (17:37).

Saki Akai was pitted against her rival Yoshiko for her return to Kyoto. When they weren’t paired together inside the ring, Yoshiko joined in with Antonio Honda’s schtick by doing the Bionic Elbow with him and putting Yukio Sakaguchi in a chokehold while he had Honda in a chokehold. Sakaguchi pinned Honda to win the match but he gave the end of show spotlight to Akai because according to him, she was the leading role today. Akai thanked everyone for coming and promised to give it her all for DDT and Kyoto.

HARASHIMA already knows that Shigehiro Irie is very strong. But today he discovered that Irie has become faster too since they last fought each other. HARASHIMA hopes he can be in full condition for Irie when the KO-D Openweight Title match is held on 22nd July.

A determined Nobuhiro Shimatani declared that today, the 30th June is the beginning of his rebellion! He then lost to Danshoku Dieno. Shimatani refused to shake Dieno’s hand after the match and tried to convince everyone again that his rebellion begins today.

Even though he was on the losing team today, MAO thinks he is on the right track towards the KO-D Tag Team Titles. All he is trying to do right now is put pressure on Tetsuya Endo. The new tag champion isn’t convinced. Endo said he and Mad Paulie won the titles from Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi so what chance do MAO & Mike Bailey have?

Konosuke Takeshita is the latest victim of the Timo Timo Timo Dragons cheating, although he almost avoided it. He didn’t fall for Hiratimo Dragon’s attempt to frame him for unmasking him. However the mask accidentally slipped off when Takeshita tried to do a Brainbuster so he was DQ’ed for that. After the match Takeshita told the rest of ALL OUT that he is now concerned. If they can’t beat the Dragons then how can they beat the Sendai Girls? Suddenly Sanshiro Takagi came out. He said he was watching the match from backstage (wearing blue tights for some reason) and he wants to help ALL OUT prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. ALL OUT’s problem is they aren’t used to wrestling against joshi. Takagi’s solution is to give ALL OUT a tune up match against the returning T2HiJoshi! It was then brought up that every member of ALL OUT has a female cousin that could wrestle in the match. So on 22nd July we will see the debuts of Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun, the ALL OUT Joshi!

*V1 for Shigehiro Irie.

Years of friendship were cast aside all in the name of glory as Shigehiro Irie defended the KO-D Openweight Title against Keisuke Ishii. Both dealt big damage early with Ishii giving Irie a Neckbreaker onto the apron and later Irie Power Bombed Ishii onto the same spot. Irie took the Kneel Kick and kicked out of an Exploder Suplex. He gained control of the match with an Avalanche Death Valley Driver and got a nearfall with the Cannonball Drop. Ishii had a glimmer of hope left with a Hurricanrana but Irie hit back with the Beast Bomber to win. Irie wanted to shake Ishii’s hand after the match but Ishii refused. The next KO-D Title defence will take place on 24th June. The challenger will be determined on 29th May at the return of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble! The winner of the match gets the 29/5 title shot but there will also be other Right To Challenge prizes on the line too. Irie said he will defend the title anytime, he doesn’t care where or against who. His goal as champion is to defend the KO-D Title around the world in order to create a new scenery for DDT.

A new costume marked Soma Takao’s turn to DAMNATION complete. More than that, constant cheating helped him beat HARASHIMA. A distraction from Tetsuya Endo allowed Takao to Low Blow his opponent. Takao was about to be pinned with a Hurricane Driver when Daisuke Sasaki pulled the referee away. A turnbuckle pad was removed and HARASHIMA collided with the exposed metal. Takao then struck him with a chair and pinned him with the Gin And Tonic.

When the match was over, Sasaki told everyone that Takao achieved a perfect victory over HARASHIMA. Takao didn’t respond and stayed quiet. Sasaki then mockingly asked HARASHIMA to apologise to his fans for losing. Endo pretended to speak for him. All of DAMNATION ganged up on HARASHIMA until suddenly Shuten-dōji came to the rescue! They chased DAMNATION out of the ring and each of them shook HARASHIMA’s hand. Is this the start of a new alliance against DAMNATION?

Makoto Oishi wasn’t joking when he said he wanted a new generation of DDT wrestlers to replace the current generation. He made Nobuhiro Shimatani dress up like Danshoku Dieno, Daiki Shimomura dress up like Antonio Honda and Yuki Iino dress up like Super Sasadango Machine. They weren’t quite perfect copies. Iino had a PowerPoem to read instead of a PowerPoint presentation. However he wanted to review it by himself so he didn’t get involved in the match until late into it when Oishi ordered him to help. Iino entered the ring and Speared Oishi by accident. Dieno then pinned Oishi with the Gay-do Clutch. After the match Honda said his team were still mentally and physically energetic even though they were all over forty. Honda fainted from exhaustion before he could finish his sentence. Everyone else congratulated Dieno for turning 41 two days earlier.

Konosuke Takeshita pulled out the Turnbuckle Brainbuster to beat Shunma Katsumata. He wanted this match to motivate Katsumata. Part of that is to make Katsumata face his criticisms. He is a pro wrestler and pro wrestlers should not have to worry about criticism according to Takeshita. Katsumata also learned more about himself. He always pretended to be a nice little boy and he never knew what he was fighting for. Now he understands what to do and he hopes not to disappoint the rest of ALL OUT from now on.

Kicks from Kota Umeda and Lariats from Kazuzada Higuchi took such a toll on each other that both were left down for the count at the same time, resulting in a draw. Higuchi offered a handshake afterwards but Umeda kicked his hand away.

A left foot injury took Yuki Ueno out of the 4 Way Tag Match. DDT was still searching for a replacement when they found Shota working in the venue as part of the staff. Shota declined at first but took the spot when the audience chanted his name. He ended up losing the match to DAMNATION.

All three of the Dragon wrestlers unmasked themselves and successfully framed KUDO to win the match by DQ. Hiratimo Dragon is being coy about how many -timo Dragon wrestlers there are. Maybe there are more, maybe there aren’t.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga beat Rekka again. This time he blocked a cradle pin and pushed all his weight down on Rekka to get the three count.

This year’s Beer Garden week will be held in Shinjuku FACE from 30th July to 5th August. Tokyo Joshi Pro and BASARA will have their own produce days during the series. Also the King Of DDT 1st Round will be held on 31st July as part of the festivities. This year’s tournament is the largest ever with 32 wrestlers competing for a 1,000,000 yen prize.

The new DDT mascot that was introduced back in April has been named Doradori-kun.
