Mayu Iwatani, Lin Bairon, Kota Ibushi & Gota Ihashi defeated Eri Susa, Makoto, Michael Nakazawa & Hikaru Sato when Iwatani pinned Nakazawa with a Dragon Suplex (12:26).

Today was the big day for the Stardom joshi promotion. They ran an important show in Sumo Hall dedicated to the retirement of Yuzuki Aikawa. Miss Bouncy Bouncy received a lot of support from DDT during her pro wrestling career so it was fitting to see some of the wrestlers having a match on the undercard. The 8-Person Tag Team match had a crossover of talent from Stardom, DDT and Wrestling New Classic as Kota Ibushi & Gota Ihashi teamed with Stardom’s Mayu Iwatani and the new WNC Women’s Champion Lin Bairon to face Michael Nakazawa, Hikaru Sato, Eri Susa and the former WNC Women’s Champion Makoto. Nakazawa and Sato were in hentai mode with Nakazawa dressed as a nurse while Sato wore a women’s bathing suit. Ibushi and Makoto got to reignite their small rivalry when they paired off in the ring. Nakazawa was his usual creepy sense and attempted to apply the Ultimate Venom Arm on Iwatani. Makoto did not want her team to win that way and tried to stop him but got caught in the crossfire. Iwatani capitalised on the backfire and pinned Nakazawa with a Dragon Suplex in an impressive feat. Now, if someone from DDT is reading this could they please go console Sanshiro Takagi?

Meanwhile a few other DDT wrestlers appeared at the the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo to attend the Nico Douga Conference. Antonio Honda put on his red and yellow tights and brought Hulkamania to life again with a Hulk Hogan Gymnastics performance. He was cheered on by Danshoku Dino, Tsurumi Amon, Daisuke Sasaki, Hiroshi Fukuda and Chikage Kiba. The video of the original performance is one of the more popular sport videos on the website.

DDT X Stardom Street Assault

DDT “HANAYASHIKI STREET WRESTLING”, 27/03/2013
Tokyo Asakusa Hanayashiki

4 Way Mixed Tag Team Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Yuzuki Aikawa Vs Danshoku Dino & Yoshiko Vs Kota Ibushi & Jaiko Ishikawa Vs Michael Nakazawa & Miho Wakizawa

DDT and Stardom join together to check off one final achievement from Yuzuki Aikawa’s wrestling bucket list before she retires in April. The one thing left that Yuzuki wants to do is to take part in DDT’s famed street wrestling matches. Sanshiro Takagi, who has probably been Yuzuki’s biggest fan throughout her bouncy career has granted her wish and set up the match to take place in Japan’s oldest amusement park, the Asakusa Hanayahiki in Tokyo.

It was originally supposed to be only two teams taking part in the match. Takagi and Aikawa will look for revenge on Danshoku Dino & Yoshiko for losing to them at “SWEET DREAMS!” last month. Kota Ibushi then showed up upset that nobody told him about DDT doing another street wrestling match. He added himself into the match but was told he needed to have a female tag team partner. Yoshiko was furious that she has to team with Dino again instead of her darling Ibushi and opted to join his team. She thinks she can win his heart by wrestling in the street just like he does. Dino cockblocked her and told Ibushi to find someone else. Ibushi did just that and announced Jaiko Ishikawa (Shuji Ishikawa’s… identical twin sister?) as his partner. Takagi joked that the two have to be dating each other.

So it looked like a 3 Way Tag was set when Michael Nakazawa made his presence felt. He too wanted to be in the match and he called over Stardom wrestler Miho Wakizawa to be his tag partner. He then taught her how to do the Ultimate Venom Arm and they formed a Venom Arm Connecion to signify their new team.

It wouldn’t be a New Year’s Eve puroresu indie show without a giant clusterfuck in the main event. The Ken Ohka Vs Ryuichi Sekine team challenge turned out to be a massive 74 person tag team match to close out the show. Ohka’s team won out in the end.

The Danshoku Dino Produce was weird. The match itself was a Royal Rumble match. But before it begun, a Samurai TV! assistant director (who oddly enough looked a lot like Tsurumi Amon) invited DDT President Sanshiro Takagi, K-DOJO founder TAKA Michinoku and Big Japan executive Eiji Tosaka down to the ring. The director challenged them not to laugh during the match. If anyone of them did laugh, either Michael Nakazawa or Tomomitsu Matsunaga would run down to the ring and spank them with a paddle. The director then called in DDT’s Kazuki Hirata and BJW’s Kazuki Hashimoto to try and make them laugh. Hashimoto was only able to make Hirata laugh, which caused him to get spanked with a paddle. That made Hashimoto laugh, which caused him to get spanked. The director said a joke and made TAKA laugh, so he got paddled too. Highlights (for a lack of a better word) from the match include Yuji Okabayashi refereeing the match while wearing a referee shirt with a midriff, Karate Brahman performing a song, Mio Shirai introducing herself as a lesbian, Atsushi Ohashi entering the match tied up in bondage rope, Kaji Tomato dancing with more and more wrestlers as they entered the match, (including CZW’s Sabian), Kaji Pot-au-feu (Ivan Markov) eliminating himself with a Tornado DDT, Okabayashi being unable to count above the number 6 and Takagi, TAKA and Tosaka getting constantly paddled for laughing at the nonsense directed at them.

Kids Fight ~Haruka’s Pro-Wrestling Story Summer Vacation Chapter~: Haruka Vs Kenny Omega ended in a Time Limit Draw (3:00).

On the same day DDT held the “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2011” show, Kenny Omega made an earlier appearance for the new Stardom joshi promotion at Korakuen Hall. Omega was there to take on Stardom’s youngest wrestler, a nine year old girl named Haruka. Kenny tried to be a good sport before the match by offering a handshake, but Haruka kicked his hand away. The two fought to a 3 minute draw with the bell ringing right when Omega was about to use his Croyt’s Wrath finishing move. Afterwards Omega offered another handshake to the little girl but got a slap across the face instead. Haruka won over the crowd and Omega once again learned that Japanese children are violent little brats.
