5. Do You Fly? Are You Flying? Special Single Match!: Tetsuya Endo defeated Mike Bailey with a Green Tea Plunge Switchback (10:02).
6. DDT Extreme Title – No DQ Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) defeated Soma Takao by Referee Stoppage with the Crossover Facelock (18:24).
*V8 for Daisuke Sasaki.
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when HARASHIMA pinned Akito with the Somato (24:01).
*V4 for HarashiMarufuji.

There were two stories to keep an eye on in the main event. One was the first meeting between Konosuke Takeshita and Naomichi Marufuji. But the other that led to the match result was HARASHIMA getting a measure of revenge on Akito after losing to him earlier this month. Takeshita and Marufuji took each other out of the match late. Takeshita hit the Knee Strike but Marufuji fired back with the Tiger King. Akito locked HARASHIMA in a European Clutch again but this time HARASHIMA kicked out. Akito kicked him afterwards but all it did was made HARASHIMA angry. In response HARASHIKA kicked Akito until Akito was knocked out. From there HARASHIMA hit the Somato and that was it. Marufuji praised the challengers afterwards for providing them with a highly tense match. He called Akito a wonderful wrestler and told Takeshita he would like to fight him again.

When ALL OUT left the ring, DAMNATION appeared to declare themselves as the next challengers for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Tetsuya Endo told the champions there are two geniuses in pro wrestling: himself and Daisuke Sasaki! HARASHIMA accepted the challenge and told Marufuji the next DDT show in Korakuen Hall is on Christmas Eve. It took some discussion for Marufuji to accept because he already has plans that day but he agreed to be there.

Chairs, steel basins and plastic boxes were all used in violent fashion during the No DQ Match. Soma Takao broke the plastic box over Sasaki’s head then hit a Diving Double Stomp while Sasaki was buried beneath a pile of chairs. Sasaki brought in handcuffs but he ended up wearing them instead. Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie eventually freed him but they took some chair shots from Takao during the process. Sasaki gave Takao the Vietnam Driver II onto the basin for a nearfall. Sasaki then locked in the Crossover Facelock until Takao lost consciousness. The referee called for the bell and rewarded the match to Sasaki. With this result Sasaki has now tied the record for most DDT Extreme Title defences in a single reign.

Dodgy translations aside, Mike Bailey had a clear plan put in place against Tetsuya Endo. Bailey thinks he is the calmer of the two so if he could make Endo mad, he can then use it to his advantage. Bailey intentionally left his guard open at the start by bowing to Endo. Endo didn’t fall for the trap. Instead he bowed back. Endo’s ability to match Bailey’s calmness with his own was the deciding factor. Bailey kicked out of the Tetsuya In The Sky and dodged away from the Shooting Star Press. But when it was his turn to fire back, Endo used Bailey’s momentum from the Green Tea Plunge to roll on top of him for the sudden three count. Whatever tension that existed between the two seems to have vanished after the match because they bowed to each other again. Bailey is taking the loss in his stride. He was hoping to win and go into his upcoming Impact X Division Title match against Taiji Ishimori at the Differ Cup with a lot of momentum. Instead he is going into the match as the clear underdog.

Super Sasadango Machine laid out his plans to beat the YaroZ in the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match. He singled out Shiro Koshinaka as the biggest threat on the challenger team. In order to beat YaroZ, the champions will have to destroy Koshinaka’s greatest weapon. His ass! So a special rule was put in place. If anybody laughs during the match, they must take a baseball bat swing to the ass. The goal is to make Koshinaka laugh. Kota Umeda, Yuki Ueno and Daiki Shimomura appeared dressed in black bodysuits carrying bats to attack any wrestler who laughed. Some of the others had some surprises in store to make Koshinaka laugh. Sasadango swapped places and costumes with the referee, LiLiCo was very aggressive with her shouting and everyone piled onto Sanshiro Takagi to stop him from doing the Spiccoli Driver. Takagi collapsed with back pain so Antonio Honda called for a doctor. Ultraman Robin appeared wearing a medical coat and he helped bring Takagi back to the locker room. He was interrupted by Yuki Iino dressed as a nurse. Iino decided that Takagi needed mouth to mouth resuscitation. It worked, Takagi regained consciousness and yelled at Iino not to use his tongue. Back in the ring the batsmen continued to attacked those who laughed but everyone noticed there was now a fourth batsman. It was Shinjiro Otani! He even used his bat the same way he does his Facewash Kicks in the corner. Honda stopped the match so he could talk about Gon, The Little Fox but he mixed it up with Fist Of The North Star. This made Koshinaka smirk and that was enough for him to get attacked. However Koshinaka shrugged off the bat shots and attacked the batmen and the others with Hip Attacks. Honda held LiLiCo in place for Koshinaka to hit the Super Hip Attack but LiLiCo moved out of the way. Honda got hit instead and he was then hit by Ken Ohka’s Fire Spear. LiLiCo climbed on top of Honda for the three count and a first successful defence of the 10-Man Titles. In the post-match interview Sasadango opened up a challenge for any fivesome in Japan to come over and face them. Big Japan, K-DOJO, WRESTLE-1, even All Japan or NOAH. Come on over!

A wild mix of teams were put together into a 3 Way Trios match. Diego was put with NωA and he filmed their entrance on his phone. Shunma Katsumata & MAO wiped out most of the field with stereo Suicide Dives but Shuten-dōji got away from them unscathed. That gave Yukio Sakaguchi the chance to pick apart Rekka and win the match for Shuten-dōji.

The King’s Game match featured plenty of surprises and suspense for the wrestlers involved. The match was overlooked by four of the voice actresses from the show. They spoke in-character and announced missions for the wrestlers to complete during the match. If anyone failed a mission they would be eliminated by death! The first twist came when the match was changed from a 5-on-1 Handicap Match into an all against each other Battle Royal. The first mission was to perform a throwing technique within 30 seconds. Everyone passed. Kazuki Hirata was about to dance when he was told dancing was prohibited by one of the other missions. The next mission was to slap Hirata within 30 seconds. Everyone did it except for Mizuki Watase. When the time expired the lights went out for a moment. When they came back on Watase spat blood out of his mouth and collapsed dead. He was out. The next mission was for the wrestlers to kiss each other. Danshoku Dino gladly kissed Koji Yoshida but Saki Akai hesitated to do the same with Nobuhiro Shimatani. They almost went through with it but Akai instead slapped him at the last second. The time expired, both of them spat out blood and they died. The next mission was to hit a Lariat. Yoshida failed and died. Lastly, Dino was instructed not to expose his ass. Hirata pulled down Dino’s tights and that was enough for Dino to fail the mission. He died and Hirata was declared the winner! Hirata danced to celebrate only to discover that his No Dancing mission was still active. Blood burst out of his mouth and he died to end the segment.

In his first singles match back from injury, Kota Umeda was victorious over Yuki Ueno. A Brainbuster, a Penalty Kick and the Umeda Driver scored him the win.

Mad Paulie made easy work of Daiki Shimomura in the dark match. The only time he was threatened with defeat was from a Missile Dropkick and a School Boy. After that Paulie lifted Shimomura up for an Argentine Backbreaker then put him away with the Paulie Buster.

Shuten-dōji are the subjects of the new DDT PREMIUM PHOTO book released at the show. Masahiro Takanashi was embarrassed when one of his sexy photos was shown on the screen and asked for the segment to be clipped out of the broadcast. KUDO’s picture was of him taking a batch and Sakaguchi’s was of him wearing only a fundoshi. He hopes those who buy the book will enjoy it “with a sense of comfort”.

The two block entries for the D-King Grand Prix were released. Block A contains Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Tetsuya Endo, Keisuke Ishii, Masahiro Takanashi, Joey Ryan and Jiro Kuroshio. Block B contains Daisuke Sasaki, Yukio Sakaguchi, Soma Takao, Akito, Kazusada Higuchi, Mike Bailey and Shuji Ishikawa.

Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama will team up to face the Brahman Brothers at “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING VOL. 2” in Korakuen Hall on 30th December.

Diego’s farewell match will be against Dick Togo on 1st December.

“RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” is scheduled for 21st October next year.

DDT “DRAMATIC NIIGATA! 2017” Results

DDT “DRAMATIC NIIGATA! 2017”, 05/11/2017
Niigata City Nishikawa Multi-Purpose Hall
292 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shuten-dōji Vs T2Hide!: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (9:01).
2. Soma Takao defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Diving Foot Stomp (7:44).
3. Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & Saki Akai defeated Toru Owashi, Kouki Iwasaki & Cherry when Katsumata pinned Iwasaki with a Foot Stomp (9:54).
4. Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii defeated Antonio Honda & Diego when Dino pinned Honda with the G Driver (12:45).
5. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Mike Bailey, MAO & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted MAO with the Cross Facelock (12:42).
6. Niigata Specialty Special Bishamonten Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated HARASHIMA & Super Sasadango Machine when Takeshita submitted Sasadango with a Cross Armbreaker (20:18).

The show took place in Super Sasadango Machine’s hometown so he came out at the start of the show to welcome everyone. He was interrupted by Danshoku Dino who accused Yuki Ueno of causing a fuss at ringside. Dino asked Ueno if there was something he wanted to say. Ueno did have something to tell Sasadango… “Happy birthday to you!” Dino, Ueno, HARASHIMA and Antonio Honda all wished Sasadango a happy 40th birthday and brought in a cake for him too. The birthday celebrations continued in the main event where Sasadango & HARASHIMA took on ALL OUT. Although Sasadango took the fall and lost the match, he was given more presents by the wrestlers and Yukinori Matsui afterwards. Akito dropped pretenses and told Sasadango he was happy to finally wrestle Muscle Sakai today after wanting to do it for a long time. Hisaya Imabayashi then informed Sasadango that he forgot to tell him about the commiserations prize for losing the main event. Sanshiro Takagi came out with the prize, another birthday cake for Sasadango. Takagi told him that when he was 40 years old he booked the first DDT show in Sumo Hall. He wants Sasadango/Sakai to spend his 40th year in life doing something big in Niigata. Sasadango thanked him and the rest of DDT for putting this event together for his birthday. He cannot keep up with the speed and fitness of the younger wrestlers but he still tries and feels refreshed. He looks forward to working towards reaching Takagi’s expectations for him.

MAO was about to do the Cannonball 450 on Daisuke Sasaki but Sasaki pushed the referee into the turnbuckles to knock him down. Sasaki then kicked MAO below the belt and pulled him into the Cross Facelock to make him submit.

It seems that management are starting to get tired of Antonio Honda’s obsession with the children’s tale “Gon, The Little Fox”. Danshoku Dino put together today’s tag match against Honda to prevent Honda from telling everybody in Niigata about Gon, The Little Fox. Dino revealed he is now the chairman of the Gongitsune Diffusion Committee and he was given permission to use a murderous move called the G Driver to stop Honda. Imabayashi protested Dino’s plan on behalf of Honda’s safety but Dino ordered Keisuke Ishii to keep him quiet. Honda tried to talk about “Gon, The Little Fox” but Dino successfully used the G Driver (which is apparently just the Danshoku Driver) to stop him. Dino & Ishii celebrated their mission of keeping Niigata as a Gay Town instead of a Gongitsune Town.

DDT Dramatic General Election Ranking In Parentheses

0. Dark Match: Super Sasadango Machine (#22) & Yuki Ueno (#24) defeated Kouki Iwasaki (#23) & Yuni (#25) when Sasadango pinned Iwasaki with the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock (7:35).
1. Shunma Katsumata (#12), MAO (#14) & Cherry (#17) defeated Saki Akai (#9), Antonio Honda (#18) & Abdullah Kobayashi when Katsumata pinned Honda with the Katsumata Guillotine (7:07).
2. Soma Takao (#6), Makoto Oishi (#10) & Ultimo Dragon defeated Toru Owashi (#14), Ken Ohka (#16) & Kazuki Hirata (#20) when Takao pinned Hirata with the Gin And Tonic (8:16).
3. Akito (#8) & Hideki Suzuki defeated Yukio Sakaguchi (#19) & Kazusada Higuchi (#21) when Akito pinned Higuchi with a European Clutch (10:01).
4. Special Single Match: Suwama defeated Keisuke Ishii (#13) with the Last Ride (8:00).
5. Special Single Match: Masahiro Takanashi (#5) defeated Tetsuya Endo (#3) with the Hangover!! (9:17).
6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) defeated HARASHIMA (#2) with the Diving Elbow From The Ladder Onto The Table (17:25).
*V7 for Daisuke Sasaki.
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) defeated Danshoku Dino (#1) with the Cross-Arm German Suplex (22:30).
*V9 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Another broken heart for Danshoku Dino. His efforts to show Konosuke Takeshita the true spirit of DDT did not win him the KO-D Openweight Championship. Part of the reason Takeshita won today was because he adapted to Dino’s gameplan when he needed to. At first he was on track to winning with his usual style, dumping Dino on his head with a German Suplex and smashing him with Lariats and Knee Strikes. But Dino got desparate and grabbed the ropes during the Gaydo Clutch for leverage. Yukinori Matsui saw Dino cheat and stopped the count. From there Takeshita switched gameplans and started using Dino’s moves against him, first with the Gaydo Clutch. Dino cut him off with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. He hit the Homo Ye then applied his new Strangle Hold P submission. Takeshita found an unlikely way to fight out of the move and it was to bite Dino’s crotch! The champion continued using the Danshoku style by Hump Thrusting him into the corner. Dino countered a German Suplex into another Gaydo Clutch but Takeshita kicked out of it. Dino hit a Moonsault but another kickout happened. Dino climbed up again for another Moonsault but Takeshita kicked him in the backside and Power Bombed him to the canvas. From there the two traded Lip Locks instead of Elbow Smashes. Dino kicked out of a Lariat at one and in a trance took every Elbow Smash Takeshita threw at him. Takeshita whiffed a Pump Kick but it was clear Dino was out on his feet. However he still kicked out of a German Suplex. Takeshita pulled down his own shorts and hit the Cross-Arm German Suplex to finally put an end to Dino’s challenge.

Takeshita told Dino after the match that today was the most colorful wall he ever had to climb over. He can now with confidence thank Dino for giving him his first kiss 10 years ago at a DDT show where he was just a fan Dino found in the audience during his entrance. He called Dino a DDT icon. Dino left the ring crestfallen but stopped when he heard the fans chant his name. Dino pounded his chest, gave everyone the middle finger, pounded his chest again and left. With this being his ninth successful defence, Takeshita now has the KO-D Title record for the most defences in a single reign. Hisaya Imabayashi entered the ring to reveal the next challenger who will come to Korakuen Hall on 24th December. It’s Colt Cabana! A pre-recorded video played of Cabana challenging the winner of the main event. Cabana’s a comedy wrestler but he is also a two time NWA Heavyweight Champion so he warns the KO-D Champion to take him seriously when they face off. When the video ended Takeshita said he already beat Mike Bailey to keep the belt and he’s the strongest foreigner he knows so he won’t lose to Colt Cabana. Also Cabana doesn’t scare him like Dino did. Takeshita told everyone that even though he does his best for DDT he is filled with regrets. He regrets finishing in 7th for the Dramatic General Election. He also regrets finishing 12th in the Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships which he thinks is a terrible and disappointing result. From now on he will put his best foot forward and he hopes the crowd will support him when he gives them exciting title defences.

Daisuke Sasaki is close to breaking the DDT Extreme Title record for most title defences. He beat HARASHIMA in a TLC Match for his 7th straight defence. Sasaki tried to attack HARASHIMA with chair and ladders but most of the time HARASHIMA kicked them away. Sasaki needed Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie to help him with interference. Soma Takao tried to stop them but was outnumbered and thrown out of the ring. HARASHIMA fought back, putting Sasaki through a table at ringside with a Diving Body Press. A Reverse Hurricanrana positioned Sasaki in front of a table leaning against the turnbuckles. HARASHIMA went for the Somato but Sasaki dodged it and HARASHIMA crashed into the table. Sasaki placed the table flat on the mat and gave HARASHIMA an Avalanche Pedigree onto it. HARASHIMA kicked out of the pin but was helpless when Sasaki stood the table up and lifted him onto it. Sasaki climbed the tallest ladder of the bunch and hit the Diving Elbow on HARASHIMA. The table didn’t break and every non-Japanese person watching imagined evil laughter in their head as Sasaki got the three count. After the match Sasaki said he didn’t get as many election votes as HARASHIMA but he doesn’t want to be like HARASHIMA anyway. He mocked HARASHIMA because he now has to say “I’m sorry I lost” to everyone who voted for him. Sasaki ordered Endo & Paulie to attack HARASHIMA but Soma came to the rescue with a chair and fought with DAMNATION until other wrestlers pulled them apart.

In a surprising upset, Masahiro Takanashi caught Tetusya Endo off guard with a flash pin out of nowhere. Endo though he had Takanashi down and out when he gave him the Tetsuya In The Sky. However, Takanashi shook off the pain and trapped Endo in a side rolling cradle for the shock three count. Takanashi called the move the “Hangover!!” which is what Endo must be feeling after losing the match that way. Takanashi said DAMNATION made a big mistake if they thought they got rid of Shuten-dōji that easily.

Well so much for that special non-title match Keisuke Ishii was going to get against the Triple Crown Champion. Less than 24 hours earlier Suwama lost the Triple Crown to Joe Doering in All Japan. Now Ishii was wrestling a disgruntled former champion. Suwama beat him in eight minutes flat. Still, he remembers Ishii from the All Japan dojo and would like to see how he will grow to the point where he might come back to AJPW. Ishii describes the result as a perfect defeat. Even though he lost it felt amazing to him. Tomorrow he will begin to grow stronger and stronger.

The pairing of Akito & Hideki Suzuki worked out well for the two. They beat Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi when Akito countered Higuchi’s Doctor Bomb into a European Clutch. Akito was happy with the result and brought up that he and Suzuki share the same birthday (28th February). Both would like to team with each other again. Suzuki told Akito he would ask Sanshiro Takagi to put plans together the next time they meet for a dinner.

Ultimo Dragon made a fool of himself by being the only one to fall for the classic Group Hop spot during Match #2. Kazuki Hirata even knocked him out with a Karate Chop. When Hirata began his dance he shouted “The Hira-timo Dragon Gym is now open!” Despite those moments, Dragon felt like he fit into the DDT world smoothly.

Abdullah Kobayashi transformed into Stan Kobayashi during the opener. He cost the match for his team when a Western Lariat hit Antonio Honda by mistake. Honda also tried to tell a Halloween story called Sadako Vs Kayako Vs Gon, The Little Fox.

In the dark match, Super Sasadango Machine took some gambles. The first one didn’t pay off when he missed a Diving Double Knee Drop aimed for Kouki Iwasaki. But he used his wits when he saw Yuni climb the second rope to do a Moonsault. Sasadango grabbed Iwasaki and pulled him down on top of him to take the brunt of Yuni’s Moonsault. Yuki Ueno helped out by giving Iwasaki a Missile Dropkick then Sasadango ended the match with the Lehmann Shock. After the match Ueno said he was excited to find out about his inclusion in the upcoming Differ Cup tournament. He said he and Takeshita will win it for DDT.

More DDT wrestlers will be added to the Ring Dream online browser game next month. Cherry is now in the game along with gender swapped versions of Sasaki and Endo. Sasaki requested for his character to have blonde hair and a bigger chest so that will also be included as an alternate design. Endo’s character includes a cameo of Mad Paulie as a stuffed toy.

Producer Dino has abolished the annual Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament to determine the KO-D Title No. 1 Contender because Cabana is getting the next shot on Christmas Eve. The 23rd November Korakuen show will instead feature the first defence of the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles.

Ishii is producing a DDT show on 11th November in Tokorozawa. Sasaki will defend his Independent World Jr. Title against an opponent to be announced. KUDO will also have his first match back after recovering from his concussion. The main event is Ishii and the returning Shigehiro Irie versus Takeshita and Yasu Urano.

The DAMNATION team competing for the vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles on 2nd November will be Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie.

*V6 for Daisuke Sasaki. V8 for Konosuke Takeshita. Ken Ohka fails in V4. Daisuke Sasaki becomes the 25th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion! Daisuke Sasaki wins Ken Ohka’s 714,146 yen!

Three champions entered the main event. One would leave with two titles, one would leave without a belt and the odd one out would be doing alright actually. Konosuke Takeshita and Daisuke Sasaki already have a lot of history with each other over the KO-D Openweight Title. The wild card was Ken Ohka. Not only was he defending the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title but earlier in the week Sasaki stole his bank account details! Sasaki did it because he thinks his own DDT Extreme Title is more valuable so he’d rather win Ohka’s money instead of the Indy Jr. Title. So now Ohka was fighting for both his championship and his money. This was confirmed when Hisaya Imabayashi took in Ohka’s savings book along with the three title belts during the ring introductions. Alliances were made and broken all throughout the match. Takeshita had Sasaki set up for the finish when he went into position for a Power Bomb but Ohka cut him off with the Fire Spear. Ohka then rallied the crowd and waited for Sasaki to get up for the Fire Spear. It all went wrong and Sasaki countered the Spear into the Cross Facelock. Ohka pulled himself over to the ropes but Sasaki rolled him back into the middle of the ring. Ohka tapped out before Takeshita could break the hold. As a result, Sasaki is still the DDT Extreme Champion and is now the new Independent Jr. Champion! Oh, and he now also claims all 714,146 yen of Ken Ohka’s money!

Sasaki was then informed he will have to defend the Indy Jr. Title against Shiori Asahi in K-DOJO for their 15th October show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita is still the KO-D Champion and the result counts as a successful title defence for him. His next defence will be on 22nd October at Korakuen against the Dramatic General Election winner or if he wins the election, an opponent of his choice. Sadly for Ohka, he leaves with nothing. Sasaki told Takeshita that their grudge hasn’t been settled yet. If the fans want to see that happen, vote for Sasaki! He was told to stop campaigning inside the ring because it is against the rules. Sasaki leaned away from his comments and said of course he doesn’t know when they will fight each other again. Sasaki ended the show with a message to everyone watching whether it was on AbemaTV, Samurai! TV, DDT UNIVERSE, in Japan and around the world. He is “Charisma” Daisuke Sasaki! You only have to remember his name. Mother Earth and the DDT ring will turn to the centre of DAMNATION!

One of the longest relationships in DDT’s 20 year history was revisited when HARASHIMA faced KUDO. They have been both tag partners and enemies throughout their careers. Plenty of kicks and Diving Knee Drops were on offer. HARASHIMA’s Somato was countered with KUDO using his own Double Knee Kick. KUDO went for the Diving Double Knee Drop aiming for the back of HARASHIMA’s head but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. HARASHIMA climbed the ropes but KUDO kicked him off and left him to dangle upside down by his legs. KUDO then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to the outside. HARASHIMA fought back as much as he could but couldn’t outkick KUDO. He finally fell down to a Buzzsaw Kick and was pinned with the Diving Double Knee Drop. In his post-match interview KUDO said he was greatful for HARASHIMA’s “special existence” because their matches inspire him. KUDO was also happy because his family was in the audience today and they got to see him wrestle. HARASHIMA was disappointed he lost but hopes his rivalry with KUDO will continue for another 21 or 22 years. He does not want his rivalry to end with a loss.

Entire homes were supposedly on the line for the Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine bout. It was a Loser Leaves House match where whoever lost would be forced to move out of their current home. Sasadango was accompanied by Muscle Sakai but Sakai quickly moved over to a laptop so he could show off a PowerPoint Presentation titled “Consideration On Traceability Of Masked Wrestlers In The Professional Wrestling Industry”. Sakai has been busy away from wrestling, balancing careers in both film making and the molding industry. He is so busy that it leaves him feeling sluggish. One of the problems relating to this is he lives a double life as Super Sasadango Machine. Sakai’s solution was to sell all rights of the Super Sasadango Machine gimmick to a company called CyberAdango to form a subsidiary called M&A.

The subsidiary will rent out the Sasadango gimmick to other wrestlers, which explains how Sakai and Sasadango could be seen together recently. Sakai then revealed that the massive rookie Yuki Ino is renting the Sasadango gimmick and is the person currently under the mask. Also part of the deal allows Sakai and Sasadango to still be recognised as one person so they will be fighting Dino two on one even though it is still officially a singles match. Finally, Sakai said his plan for the match was to poke Dino in the eyes and blind him with the Iron Claw. Sakai then put on his Sasadango gear and entered the match. His plan worked perfectly during the match until Ino pulled off his own Sasadango mask and tights to reveal Danshoku tights underneath! Ino gave Sakai the Lip Lock then threw him into Dino for the Danshoku Driver. The referee raised both Dino and Ino’s hands in victory even though Ino looked embarrased. Sakai was furious at Ino for betraying him. Ino admitted he switched sides when Dino gave him the Lip Lock during the match. In the post-match interview both Dino and Sakai ignored questions about if the match stipulation would be upheld.

Some miscommunication between Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie cost them their match against Soma Takao & Yasu Urano. Paulie’s Corner Splash to Takao missed and instead squashed Endo by mistake. Paulie was so concerned over Endo that he couldn’t fight out of Takao’s La Magistral Cradle and was pinned.

Ryuichi Sekine wanted to get his hands on Saki Akai but wound up getting blocked. Meanwhile Yukio Sakaguchi and Rocky Kawamura had a strike duel that ended in a stalemate when Sakaguchi’s High Kick met with Kawamura’s Straight Mix Punch. Akai hit a Diving Cross Body on Kawamura but he used the momentum to roll backwards on top of her for the pin.

Yuu spent the early part of the show being chased by other wrestlers who wanted the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. She found a room to hide in, ate some katsudon with chopsticks and took a nap afterwards. Yukinori Matsui entered the room and saw the chopstick were on top of Yuu’s chest. 1…2…3! The Disposable Chopsticks were now the champion! Royce Isaacs suddenly appeared and snapped the chopsticks in half with his Miracle Ass. Now he is the champion. Isaacs then went out to the ring to defend the belt in a Battle Royal. Sanshiro Takagi entered the match still wearing his suit from the earlier announcement at the start of the show. Matsuno Collection A.T. took part in the match instead of Gorgeous Matsuno. Antonio Honda distracted Isaacs with a story about “Gon, The Little Fox” mixed in with Lupin III called “Lupine III”. The trick worked, Honda poked Isaacs’s in the eyes and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Yoshihiko then pinned Honda to become champion. Kazuki Hirata grabbed Yoshihiko and used it to hit Yuni with. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko with a Fire Thunder Driver to win the belt. Hirata went on to eliminate five opponents in quick succession by using his HIRATA GO! glasses to make them dance and drop their guards. Only Yuni was left and the kid pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana to win the title and the Battle Royal! Yuni celebrated with Makoto Oishi who lifted him up on his shoulder. Oishi then betrayed Yuni and gave him a Backbreaker to win the belt from him! His moment of glory was cut short when Yuu returned. She flipped him over with a throw and dropped him with the Last Ride to regain her title. She was then chased away from ringside by more wrestlers. When Yuu was finally safe and alone, she had an interview and revealed that she does the Last Ride in dedication to the late Super Uchu Power. She was very happy to do it in a DDT Korakuen Hall show. Yuu said she loves the Iron Man Title the most in the world and wonders if there is anybody else who cherishes it as much as she does.

The show kicked off with an NωA musical performance. While they were singing, Yuu appeared with the Iron Man Title and she was chased around the ring by other wrestlers. When she escaped, the match went on as normal and NωA won. Shunma Katsumata & MAO cut off Kouki Iwasaki and focused their attacks on Mizuki Watase. MAO hit Watase with the Screw High Kick and Katsumata got rid of Iwasaki with a Lightning Spiral. Katsumata then pinned Watase with the Firebird Splash.

Diego rolled away from Daiki Shimomura’s Swanton Bomb then hit him with the VHS to win the dark match.

The DDT roster including wrestlers from DNA, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling gathered in the ring for the announcement of the company becoming a member of CyberAgent group. Sanshiro Takagi was accompanied by the president of CyberAgent, Susumu Fujita. Takagi told everyone he is staying on as the company president and will continue to run DDT as normal. He brought up AbemaTV as a CyberAgent property that is influential among the younger generation. DDT can now use that to their advantage. With this new relationship, Takagi wants DDT to become the No. 1 pro wrestling company in the industry! Susumu admitted he was not a pro wrestling fan but enjoyed watching DDT’s Street Wrestling and Beer Garden shows. He even attended the Beer Garden show hosted by Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine and came away impressed by DDT’s vision of pro wrestling. He assures all of the fans that he does not want DDT to change at all. He wants to make DDT bigger of course but has faith in Takagi’s leadership to make DDT No. 1 in the future. Takagi then rallied the wrestlers group by group. DDT will make the next step. The DDT wrestlers cheered. DNA will make the next step. The DNA wrestlers cheered. BASARA will make the next step. The BASARA wrestlers cheered. Tokyo Joshi will make the next step. The Joshi wrestlers cheered. Ganpuro will make the next step. Ken Ohka cheered then realised he was the only Ganpuro wrestler in the ring.

Takagi reappeared at the end of the show to remind everyone he will continue to be DDT president and as president he will continue to enrich the pro wrestling world.

The schedule for the first ever D King Grand Prix was revealed. There will be 8 shows featuring tournament matches starting on 5th January in Shinjuku FACE with the final taking place at Korakuen Hall on 28th January.

DDT will be teaming up with Ring☆Dream once more to produce a 3rd wrestling show together on 16th December. Two new characters for the game based on DDT wrestlers will be unveiled at next month’s Korakuen show.

DDT will do two matches at the Tokyo Ramen Show 2017 on 26th October.

5. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone But Is Worried Whether It Will Be Suitable Content – Loser Leaves House: Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine
6. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone: HARASHIMA Vs KUDO
7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) Vs Ken Ohka (I/c)

Producer Danshoku Dino explained why he decided to make the HARASHIMA Vs KUDO match. If Sanshiro Takagi, NOSAWA Rongai and MIKAMI were the most important figures in DDT’s creation then HARASHIMA and KUDO are the most important wrestlers for the rest of the 20 year history of the company. Dino wants to see who is the stronger of the two in today’s DDT. HARASHIMA thinks the winner of this match can have a claim to be the No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Openweight Title. KUDO is confident he will win because he beat HARASHIMA in their last singles match together.

For the 3 Way Match main event, KUDO predicts Ken Ohka will find a way to win. Ohka famously won the KO-D Title from KUDO back in 2015 by using his Right To Challenge title shot in the middle of KUDO’s defence against Yasu Urano, turning it into a 3 Way in the process. Ohka pinned Urano to become the champion. His plan worked perfectly but KUDO had his own Right To Challenge Contract and cashed it in to immediately win back the championship. KUDO thinks the landscape of the upcoming main event changes completely with the addition of Ohka. He knows Ohka will have a trick up his sleeve to win somehow.

A weird moment happened at the “NON-FIX ~ 9.13 ~” show a few days ago. Muscle Sakai and Super Sasadango Machine were in the ring together at the same time. It was odd because nobody had ever seen them in the same place before. Sasadango explained in an unusual voice that he hired Sakai as a subcontractor to help Producer Dino with his busy schedule. Sakai’s role is to produce the first ever singles match between Dino Vs Sasadango. Dino is allowing this because Sakai is such an indispensable part of DDT history. Sasadango shocked both Sakai and Dino by revealing that the match is now a Loser Leaves House match! Whoever loses must leave their home and move somewhere else! Sakai got mad because he, er, Sasadango just bought his house in Niigata. When asked why he would make that stipulation, Sasadango said it’s because he lived in Niigata for many years and should move to Tokyo even though he doesn’t want to. But he is also determined not to lose the match. He came up with this stipulation only because the match needs a bet. Sakai admitted he’d like to make Dino move to a new house so the stipulation was accepted!

*V3 for Shuten-dōji.

DDT took a trip through its past for a special show held inside their old venue Shibuya Club ATOM. It was the first time in 13 years that DDT was at the building. Some old friends and faces stopped by and even some of the current generation of DDT wrestlers gave a few references to past members of the company. The main event was a big reunion as HERO!, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba returned to face Shuten-dōji. The decision was made at the start of the show to turn the match into a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. The champions defeated their retro opponents then were joined by the rest of the roster to celebrate 20 years of DDT to end the show.

The YaroZ Vs DAMNATION 6-Man Tag Match was split into two matches by order of Producer Danshoku Dino. He wanted Antonio Honda to have a singles match so he was put in a match against Tetsuya Endo. The remaining Yaroz and DAMNATION wrestlers would then fight in a normal tag match. DAMNATION came out on top in both matches.

Konosuke Takeshita wanted himself and Akito to team with Poison Sawada JULIE because he was the one who pinned JULIE in his retirement match five years ago. JULIE told both of them that ALL OUT is missing something vital. Entertainment! He gave both of them a bottle labelled “ALL OUT POISON” and encouraged them to drink. They were hesitant to do so until JULIE said is was a state of the art 100% protein drink. Takeshita & Akito went ahead and drank their bottles. JULIE then revealed it is Snake World Protein and they are now under his spell! When it was time for their match, Takeshita & Akito wore JULIE style gear and were now called Konosuke Hebikita & Hebikito! With a hiss and a rattle, JULIE controlled his subjects to defeat NωA. Hebikito gave Shunma Katsumata the Maoi Of Easter then put him in a Figure Four Leg Lock. Hebikita put Makoto Oishi in the Cattle Mutilation to make him submit. The snake potion wore off 10 minutes after the match and JULIE only brought two bottles. Neither Takeshita nor Akito noticed.

When Ken Ohka arrived in the building, so many memories came flooding back. Not all of them good. He flashed back to 2004 when he was wrestling as the musketeer O.K. Revolution and was forced by Sanshiro Takagi to retire. With this fresh in his mind he wanted revenge on Takagi. He tried to convince Danshoku Dino and Muscle Sakai to join him and gang up on Takagi. But when the bell rang to start the match Takagi, Dino and Sakai all attacked Ohka instead. Takagi tried to give Ohka the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Cherry rolled into the ring and stopped him. Takagi got rid of Cherry and tried his finisher again. This time Sakai stopped him and then to everyone’s surprise Super Sasadango Machine entered the ring. Takagi’s confusion at seeing Sakai and Sasadango standing next to each other distracted him long enough for Ohka to hit him with the Fire Spear for the three count. Ohka told Takagi afterwards that he dreamt of nothing but beating him in Club ATOM. Now that he did it, he forgives him for what happened between them in the past. Ohka cried for his music to play but there was silence. Takagi reminded Ohka who is the real thing around here and screamed for his own song to play. This time it did.

Kazuki Hirata brought down Tetsuya Koda to be a DJ for the Club House Death Match. DJ Koda was instructed to play only one song throughout the match, “TOKYO GO”. Koda kept getting accidentally cut off by Toru Owashi. When he eventually recovered and played the song again, Mike Bailey put on the HIRATA GO! glasses and sang along while Keisuke Ishii pinned Hirata with the Kneel Kick.
