The second Muscle show began with Mizuki Watase and Yuki Ueno welcoming the audience. Ueno wore a gas mask for protection but took it off so the fans could see his face.

The teams being divided by size from the first show continued here. Now the teams have their own shirts to wrestle in too. Yuki The Rock joined Team L because South River Minamikawa had other priorities elsewhere today. Yuki got the pin on Team S member Shota while everyone else told Yumehito Imanari not to go all out because it was just the opening match. During this Yuki revealed to Imanari that HUSTLE used scripts for their shows 15 years ago.

The Team M wrestlers had their own match to worry about. It’s the return of the Hell In A Blue Sheet match! The Team M members along with a mystery X wrestler fought underneath the blue sheet with the commentary being the only thing describing what was happening to the audience. Whoever X was, that person wound up as the winner, last pinning Ueno with the Takatonic.

A few weeks ago at a public talk event, Super Sasadango Machine described Muscle as the 2.5 Dimension of all pro wrestling a mixed martial arts. By being in between the 2nd and 3rd dimensions, unusual things can happen such as slow motion wrestling or Muscle Sakai going over Atsushi Onita. The idea of being in the 2.5 Dimension comes from the differences between manga/anime and reality. So the next step is to make Muscle into a multimedia juggernaut with manga and a musical anime show! That will then make Muscle a 2.9 Dimensional experience!

A sample demonstration took place in the ring. “Finish Ranpatsu ~ ShinKiba Use Your Illusion I” (the manga can be read here) is about Dreamboy Imanari and The Finisher Boys battling Big Prince Naya and The Folding Chair Boys in ways that involved choreographed dance routines. Naya purchased New Fang Pro Wrestling during the Coronavirus epidemic for tax evasion purposes and he intends to flip it for a profit once the virus disappears.

The thrilling conclusion to the story took place right here in Muscle in a No People, No Webcast, No Tweet Loser Leaves Shin-Kiba match! The two sides fought in ways that merged pro wrestling and anime together. Imanari got the upper hand on Naya until Tetsuya Endo decided he wanted to be in the show after all and attacked him! He gave Imanari the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb and left him to be pinned by Naya.

Imanari was told to leave because he lost the match but he refused. Br He talked about how much Sakai inspired him to become a creative pro wrestler. He convinced Naya to have a rematch. The bell rung and Imanari fought on while getting cheers from The Finisher Boys. Imanari got the win in the end, hitting the Chubby Knee Kick on Naya. Naya accepted his destiny and began to leave but Imanari stopped him. He said they could walk off together, shoulder to shoulder. When they left, The Finisher Boys settled their differences with The Folding Chair Boys. Maybe they could form their own promotion together. The End…? Well no because Sakai mentioned after the performance that he is already working on the sequel.

The show ended with the announcement of “MUSCLE 3” taking place on 9th July at Shin-Kiba 1st RING.

5. 1st Floor Community Area – DDT Extreme Title – Blindfold Hidden Bra Death Match: Shinya Aoki defeated HARASHIMA (c) by Bra Removal (13:13).
*HARASHIMA fails in V4. Shinya Aoki becomes the 48th DDT Extreme Champion!
6. Current Blast 8-Man Tag Death Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Iino & Yukio Naya defeated Atsushi Onita, Danshoku Dieno, Chris Brookes & MAO when Takeshita pinned Dieno after Dieno was accidentally hit by Onita with a Current Blast Baseball Bat (10:11).

DDT has come to Saitama Super Arena three months early for an empty arena show! The fate of the company was on the line after Danshoku Dieno set off a mutiny in the locker room against Sanshiro Takagi. A DDT Army was formed in retaliation but Takagi was disappointed to find out that only three other people joined his side. They were Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Iino. They met up with Jungle Pocket comedian Shinji Saito inside the arena to start the event. Dieno was there with Super Sasadango Machine & Keigo Nakamura. He was also armed with a current blast baseball bat. It was time to start their battle!

The two sides had their match in the 1st Basement Floor. It quickly moved over to the parking lot. Dieno thrusted a traffic cone into MAO’s backside. MAO then did the same to Dieno. Nakamura gave Iino a Low Blow to avoid the Haka Elbow but Takeshita then used an Atomic Drop to crotch Nakamura on the cone. Everyone did Lip Locks and Iino made Nakamura give up to the Argentine Backbreaker.

Takagi demanded Dieno to give up after the DDT Army defeated his rebellion. Suddenly a white van appeared and ran over Takagi! MAO was the driver and revealed he was a member of the Dieno Army all along! Takagi was thrown into the van and it drove off. The van briefly stopped so Iino would run into it. Takeshita & Saito followed the direction of the van in the hopes of finding Takagi.

Takeshita arrived in a locker room where he found Naomi Yoshimura, Makoto Oishi & Saori Anou hanging around. They revealed they were on Dieno’s side. Eruption then entered the room and offered to help Takeshita, kicking off a 6-Man Tag. The Dieno Army tried to strangle the Eruption wrestlers with phone cords. Kazusada Higuchi lifted a massage table onto himself and used it as full body armour. Saki Akai threw Anou onto another massage table and started attacking her with massages. Yukio Sakaguchi ran across the tables to give Yoshimura a PK while Higuchi submitted Oishi with the Canadian Backbreaker. Eruption then stuffed Oishi into a trash can after he told them where to find Takagi.

Takeshita & Saito next went down the corridor. They did not find Takagi there. Instead DAMNATION were standing around drinking. Daisuke Sasaki told them they were hired by Dieno. Takeshita called over Akito, Mizuki Watase & Royce Chambers to battle DAMNATION straight away. Akito pulled off Tetsuya Endo’s tights and was chased out of the room by him. Endo caught Akito and put him in the Yurikamome Hold to get them back. Soma Takao dragged Watase into a woman’s restroom and dunked his head into a toilet with the Gin And Tonic. Chambers gave Endo a Canadian Destroyer on top of a stack of wooden pallets then Moonsaulted onto everybody below. Watase came out of the restroom with a toilet brush to attack DAMNATION with. Sasaki took it off him and shoved it into Watase’s mouth. The three DAMNATION wrestlers then Power Bombed Watase onto a nearby ladder for the three count. Takeshita asked DAMNATION how much Dieno was paying them. Sasaki said 6,500 yen each including transportation expenses. Takeshita convinced Saito to pay each of them 10,000 yen to find out where Takagi was taken too. DAMNATION pointed them up to the rooftop.

Takeshita, Akito & Chambers ran up the stairs and there on the rooftop was the Dieno Army with Takagi tied to a chair under hostage. Dieno told them they were trapped with his entire army which included Munenori Sawa, Pokotan and the Saitama Super Arena mascot Tamarlin.

The DDT Army held against the ambush. Akito kept everyone at bay with Dragon Screws while Chambers dove onto whoever was in his way. They linked all of the Dieno Army wrestlers together in a Headscissors Chain and Takeshita flipped them all over with the Walls Of Takeshita to make all of them submit.

Takeshita thought the coup was defeated until he found out Takagi was switched with Yoshihiko on the chair during the battle! Saito began to laugh and suddenly attacked Akito & Chambers. He was a Dieno Army spy all along and Takagi is going to be publicly executed by explosion! Takeshita rallied together Iino, Yukio Naya and Shunma Katsumata dressed in his hardcore Joker costume to go rescue Takagi.

But first there was the important matter of the DDT Extreme Title match to get through. Away from the chaos on the rooftop, HARASHIMA and Shinya Aoki were about to have their match in the Community Arena. They took off their shirts to reveal they were both wearing bras underneath. They then placed blindfolds over their eyes. That’s right, the belt was being defended in a Blindfold Hidden Bra Death Match! First wrestler to take off their opponent’s bra while blindfolded wins! With such a large empty room to fight in there was danger of the wrestlers getting lost. But the two wrestlers were able to stay close to each other. HARASHIMA tripped over a board when he went to do the Somato. Aoki’s attempt at a European Clutch was blocked but he was able to put the champion in a Manjigatame and strip off HARASHIMA’s bra to win. Aoki takes back the Extreme Title from HARASHIMA! He celebrated with both of the bras and guessed he will be back in Saitama Super Arena to defend the title in June.

Anyway back to the mutiny. The Dieno Army was about to execute Takagi down at the entrance when Takeshita and the DDT Army arrived to save him. Dieno told them he had one last trump card for them. “Wild Thing” played and out came Atsushi Onita with MAO & Chris Brookes! Dieno joined them for the main event 8-Man Tag. Onita spat red Mist into Naya’s face then gave Katsumata a Piledriver through a table. They recovered and held onto Onita so Takeshita could swing the Current Blast Baseball Bat at him, causing a big explosion. During the chaos, Takagi freed himself from the chair and grabbed the Blast Bat. He tried to hit MAO with it but MAO blocked the swing with a chair, causing the explosion to knock both of them away. Dieno gave Takeshita the Lip Lock then went to get the bat. Katsumata dove towards him but Dieno struck him with the explosive bat in mid-air. Dieno then climbed onto a podium and pulled the back of his tights down. He instructed his army to shove the enemies’ faces into his backside. Everyone resisted so Onita grabbed the Blast Bat. He swung it but Takeshita ducked and the bat struck Dieno’s ass, exploding it in a major way! Takeshita crawled on top of Dieno to pin him, ending the coup once and for all. Or is it?

After the match Saito suggested they do a Current Blast Death Match at the Tokyo headquarters for Yoshimoto Kogyo. Onita liked the idea but attacked Saito to make sure he won’t break his promise. When he left, Takeshita told Dieno the coup was over. But Dieno had a surprise. He isn’t the mastermind. The mastermind is standing over on top of the entrance. Over there was a masked person wearing Dieno’s entrance robe. The person took off the mask to reveal it was Akane Takiyama, one of the AbemaTV announcers who was reporting on the event the whole time! A new Saitama Super Arena legend begins!

264 Fans – No Vacancy

6. Chris Brookes, Masahiro Takanashi & MAO defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Brookes pinned Katsumata with the Praying Mantis Bomb (12:14).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) defeated Danshoku Dieno & Super Sasadango Machine when Yoshimura pinned Sasadango with a Lariat (19:14).
*V3 for Nautilus.

There was havoc caused in the KO-D Tag Team Title match when the referees kept getting wiped out. Yukinori Matsui got knocked away several times forcing Tomomitsu Matsunaga to come in as a substitute. He got knocked down as well so no referee was around to count any pins. Danshoku Dieno & Super Sasadango Machine called in their secret weapon. It was the third referee DJ Nira! He was on their side and tried to win them the Tag Titles. Matsui recovered and counted a pin for Nautilus but Nira stopped him with an Elbow Drop. Matsui gave Nira a Lariat and took back control of the match. The challengers got rid of Yuki Ueno and gave Naomi Yoshimura a double team Danshoku Driver for a nearfall. Sasadango pulled off his mask in frustration and went in for the kill. But Yoshimura overpowered him and hit a Lariat for the three count.

After the match Ueno said that the last time DDT was supposed to be in Nagoya he, Yoshimura & HARASHIMA were meant to challenge for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. A typhoon postponed the show so that match never happened. Today Ueno & Yoshimura were able to give Nagoya a tag title match in a different form. That makes them glad. Ueno said they will next defend the titles against The Moonlight Express. However Hisaya Imabayashi has not decided on the date for that match yet.

Makoto Oishi complained that the Nagoya team were too noisy making their introductions so he and Toru Owashi taped Hiroaki Ura’s mouth shut. Intelligence Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4 got revenge by whispering the word “Divorce” into Oishi’s ear at every opportunity to drive him mad. He also targeted Owashi’s nipples. HARASHIMA and Kengo Takai were the only ones acting normally. They simply told each other “long time no see” before they wrestled.

The Okibariyasu trial is now at 2 wins and 2 losses after Saki Akai defeated Miranda Gordy. Akai said she wants to win her remaining three matches so she and Eruption can make DDT even bigger.

*Akito wins Daisuke Sasaki’s Right To Challenge At Saitama Super Arena Sword.
5e. Tetsuya Endo eliminated Akito with the Yurikamome (15:30).
*Tetsuya Endo win Akito’s Right To Challenge At Saitama Super Arena Sword.
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.

The big change is with the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. The match was going to be cancelled until Danshoku Dieno got Super Sasadango Machine to team with him because he is “big and fit” like his last tag partner. Dieno said despite the twists and turns this week, his ambition has not changed. He still intends to win as many DDT championships as he can.

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Maki Itoh & Raku
3. International Princess Title: Thunder Rosa (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima

Raku now has a win under her belt and she got it at Miu Watanabe’s expense. With Maki Itoh’s guidance she also wants the Princess Tag Team Titles too. Itoh agreed to team with her because she wants to see if her hard head is tougher than Rika Tatsumi’s ass.

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.

*HARASHIMA fails in V2. Masato Tanaka becomes the 74th KO-D Openweight Champion!

There is now no doubt about it, Masato Tanaka is the strongest in DDT! He went through the D-Ou Grand Prix undefeated and today wiped out the only blight in his record from that tournament to become the new KO-D Openweight Champion! It wasn’t easy though. HARASHIMA threw everything he had against Tanaka from the Somato to the Firebird Splash. The ace up Tanaka’s sleeve as always was the Sliding D. He used it to great effect, finding even the smallest of openings to use the move. The climax of the match saw HARASHIMA go for the Swan Dive Somato. Tanaka avoided the move and popped his opponent with the Sliding D, then hit the finisher two more times from behind and from the front to finish him off.

When the KO-D Title was wrapped around Tanaka’s waist, he told HARASHIMA he does not know how many defences he will last but he is looking forward to finding out. Hisaya Imabayashi informed Tanaka that his first defence is against MAO on 23rd February. Suddenly Pokotan came down but the mascot costume was only partially completed. Imabayashi pulled Pokotan’s head off to reveal it was MAO in disguise! MAO told Tanaka “Just bring it, bitch!” He tried to attack Tanaka with a Hurricanrana but Tanaka countered it into a Power Bomb. Tanaka warned MAO that there is a lot of things to be done between themselves and HARASHIMA before the next title match. Tanaka promised he will wear the KO-D Title with pride in any ring he climbs into while he is champion.

Tension between Yuki Iino & Chihiro Hashimoto was so bad that the team couldn’t even decided whose entrance music to use, so the sound guy had to mash their songs together. They both went for the Haka Elbow early on Yuki Ueno but got in each other’s way. The champions Nautilus took control until Hashimoto got the better of Ueno, leaving Iino facing off with Naomi Yoshimura. Unfortunately for the challengers, Yoshimura wore down Iino with the Drill-A-Hole Piledriver and ultimately won with the Shonenba. Ueno thanked Iino & Hashimoto for the match then said Nautilus’ goal is to defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles at Saitama Super Arena this summer.

There was confusion when Kazuki Hirata’s music played but nobody stepped through the curtain. Keigo Nakamura eventually made his way down to ringside to tell Yukinori Matsui that Hirata had gone missing. Naomichi Marufuji then made his entrance carrying Hirata over his shoulders! It turned out Hirata tried to ambush Marufuji backstage but failed in a major way. Hirata apologised to Marufuji and promised he was now Reborn. He offered a handshake but it was a trap for another sneak attack to start the match. Marufuji easily took control, forcing Hirata to bring out the Hirata GO! glasses. Marufuji knocked off the glasses and broke them over his knee. Just when he was about to finish the job, Hirata begged for a break so he could tell him something important. Hirata wrote a letter telling Marufuji how seeing him wrestle on TV gave him hope to live at a time when he had nothing. His one wish is to dance with Marufuji! Two Hirata GO! glasses found their way into the ring and Hirata convinced a hesitant Marufuji to dance with him. Then he hit an Enzuigiri and tried to Cradle Marufuji for a near fall. Marufuji stayed calm, danced with Hirata again and knocked him out with the Ko-oh knee strike. When Hirata came to, Marufuji stuck out his hand and asked him his name. This isn’t the reason he came to DISASTER BOX and DDT but after today, Marufuji will remember Hirata’s name.

The Right To Challenge series returned with three prizes on the line in a Ladder Match. Yasu Urano, Daisuke Sasaki and (a bare assed) Shinya Aoki all grabbed an envelope that hung above the ring. After the match Imabayashi told them to open their envelopes because one of them was different than the others. Sasaki and Aoki just has the regular Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contracts but Urano found out he held a Right To Challenge At Saitama Super Arena Contract! Imabayashi gifted Urano with a decorative sword that represented the KO-D Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” in June.

Imabayashi explained that the rules for the sword are the same as the regular Right To Challenge Contract. If Urano loses to another wrestler then he loses the sword and the title shot to that wrestler. Sasaki asked if he could use his own contract to challenge Urano for the cool looking sword? Imabayashi figured he could. Sasaki shouted he was cashing in his contract and he immediately attacked Urano to start the match. They scrambled for two minutes until Sasaki rolled through Urano’s Hurricanrana to pin him for the three count. Sasaki celebrated with the sword by doing the Fire Festival pose. Backstage Sasaki said he wants to win the KO-D Title at Saitama Super Arena then propose to Candice LeRae at NXT or Raw or Smackdown or AEW or wherever it is she works.

The trio of Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai are now called Eruption. They entered together with matching white entrance gear and a unit video. Their debut as a new force in DDT saw them defeat ALL OUT. Sakaguchi & Akai took out Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata with Apron PKs while Higuchi pinned Akito with the Doctor Bomb. When asked what the meaning of Eruption is, Sakaguchi told reports to just look at the name and their entrance video. Higuchi believes DDT as it is now is not the DDT he likes so Eruption will go on a rampage. Akai said they will create something new with DDT, something that is fun for the three of them.

A stylist from the Gold Shibuya hair salon worked on the hairstyles for every wrestler involved in Match #2. Yes even Super Sasadango Machine. The fans chanted “ikemen” at the wrestlers during the match. Sasadango was unmasked when MAO grabbed his “hair” and gave him a Snapmare. It turned out Sasadango’s real hair underneath the mask was also styled. Toru Owashi got some hairspray to freshen it up. They then helped the stylist live out his dream of being a pro wrestler by having him do The People’s Elbow on MAO. Hiroshi Yamato broke the pin and put Sasadango in position for MAO to hit the Cannonball 450.

Soma Takao has really taken a liking to using Elbow Smashes lately. He used a bunch of them followed by a Rolling Elbow on Keigo Nakamura for a nearfall. When Nakamura got back up, Takao took him out with a Running Elbow Butt.
