Reika Saiki is the winner of this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup! The Muscle Idol even went over the current TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion to do it. Yuka Sakazaki’s winning streak since becoming the champion ended here when Saiki fought through the pain of a Brainbuster to get back up and hit a Shining Wizard. One Jackhammer later and Saiki was the winner. Saiki said that one year ago she wasn’t in the tournament so she never thought she would progress all the way this year. Every time she wrestles she had more fun but she also becomes stronger. To get even stronger she’ll need to win the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki then threw out the challenge to Sakazaki for a title match at Korakuen Hall on 26th August. Sakazaki refused and said she doesn’t want the match but she eventually agreed to it.

In the earlier semi-finals, Saiki ended Syoko Nakajima’s streak of reaching the final of every Princess tournament. No matter how many times Nakajima avoided the Jackhammer, Saiki continued attempting the move knowing that it would win the match for her. She was right. Nakajima was satisfied with her own performance despite losing. She fought her best and even though she is now further away from getting her title match, she realises how fun it is to wrestle for Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today was a good start of the summer for her.

Mizuki knew she was in for a tough challenge against Sakazaki but she was still confident in her abilities to win. She even brought a second costume to wear in the final. But Sakazaki had her Cutie Special scouted and countered it into the Osaekomi Backslide for the three count. Mizuki learned that concentrating on only one match plan was the reason for her defeat. She now wants to study different ideas she can learn from different places.

Saki-nami was in a bad mood because she has not fully recovered from her illness yet. She blamed the rest of Tokyo Joshi for this “curse” that’s stopping her from being her usual perfect self. So while she is out of action her dark and mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent will take her place in matches. Laurent showed off his medical knowledge by focusing on moves involving joint manipulation. He also attempted to jab Rika Tatsumi and Maho Kurone with a syringe. Tatsumi fought him off but was knocked over when Martha pushed the referee into her. Saki-nami then came in and hit a Big Boot to both Tatsumi and Kurone. Laurent then put Tatsumi in a Straightjacket Choke called the Euthanasia for the submission victory. Tatsumi complained about Biishiki-gun always cheating so now’s the time for her coach to come in and even the numbers. Shiro Koshinaka then appeared! He took out Laurent and Martha with the Hip Attack. Saki-nami almost took the move too but she escaped the ring. She wanted to know whose dirty ass father was this? Koshinaka told her he is teaming with the Dragon Bombers to fight NEO Biishiki-gun at Korakuen!

The grudge match between Maki Ito and Azusa Takigawa ended in another double countout. The two fought over to the crowd where Takigawa tried to tie Ito’s arm to a railing with the microphone cord. It didn’t work. A pissed off Ito responded with a Headbutt and a DDT on the floor. Ito tried to crawl back to the ring but couldn’t make it in time. Ito demanded Tetsuya Koda to restart the match. Koda said he would like to but they had to go on with the show. Instead another rematch will take place at the 26/8 Korakuen show. Both Ito and Takigawa hit Koda over the decision. Sanshiro Takagi then came out with an idea. The rematch will be an Idol Lumberjack Match with himself as the referee! However neither LinQ or Aime will be at the show so it is up to Ito and Takigawa to go out and search for other idol groups to participate as the lumberjacks. Pro, underground or local, any level of idol is open to apply.

The six women in the Beer Garden Special all wrestled while wearing floating pool rings around their waists. Miyu Yamashita had trouble fighting off Marika Kobashi for most of the match. It wasn’t enough that earlier in the show Cherry tried to sneak an ambush pin on her during the opening introductions. She also had Kobashi to defend herself against. Nodoka-oneesan used her floating ring as a shield to protect her from Nonoko’s Boin-maker. She then pinned her with a School Boy. After the match bad tension grew between Nonoko and Yuna Manase. The two collided chest to chest. Yamashita stepped in to try and keep them apart but wound up getting smothered unconscious. Kobashi then pinned Yamashita to win the Iron Man Title! Kobashi’s celebration was cut short when Cherry returned and successfully pinned her to become champion. Cherry said she won the title fair and square. Now she will be the defending champion for the Tokyo Joshi Battle Royal at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”.

The next trainee to debut in Tokyo Joshi introduced herself at the start of the show. Yuki Kamifuku is 174cm high, studied in Toyo University and is currently a gravure model. She has no prior experience with club activities and only began training this spring. She will debut at the Korakuen show.

Tweets relating to Tokyo Joshi will now use the hashtag #TJPW in an attempt to reach out to an international audience. The unexpected announcement was booed by the crowd.

5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Magical Girl Splash (19:16).

The Tokyo Princess Cup 2nd Round saw one big elimination. Last year’s winner is out! Yuu faced Reika Saiki in a rematch from their TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title bout from March. This time Saiki avoided the Last Ride and gave Yuu the Jackhammer to avenge her loss. Elsewhere in the tournament, Yuka Sakazaki continues to prove her championship is powering up her abilities with a win over Rika Tatsumi. Sakazaki praised Tatsumi for evolving because she found her difficult to figure out in the match. Syoko Nakajima defeated Maki Ito on her journey to reach the final for the fourth time in a row. Ito cried over the result. She got even more angry when she found out her Ito Respect Army partner Mizuki beat Azusa Takigawa.

The show ended with the draw to determine the semi-final matches. The two matches are Mizuki Vs Sakazaki and Saiki Vs Nakajima. Although Sakazaki is still friendly to the other girls she warned them that they are still her enemies in the tournament.

The show began with a surprise appeared of Saki-nami. Everybody thought SIN Biishiki-gun was disbanded after Saki fell ill and fled to France to recover. Saki revealed that the group is now NEO Biishiki-gun and she received permission from Tetsuya Koda to return to Tokyo Joshi Pro. The unit consists of herself, Martha the maid and a never before seen dark and dashing figure with a scarred face. Saki introduced him as Yukio Saint Laurent, or Yukio-san for short. He is Saki’s doctor and the man who cured her of her illness. NEO Biishiki-gun will have their first match on the next Tokyo Joshi show.

When the 6-Woman Tag match was over, Maho Kurone spotted Joey Ryan in the room. When she noticed he had the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title with him she began to chase him around ringside. She almost won the title with a School Boy but Ryan kicked out and escaped.

Takgiawa challenged Ito to a match to end their feud on 30th July. Ito said 30th July will be the death of Takigawa!

285 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Reika Saiki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with a Jackhammer (5:32).
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Mizuki defeated Nonoko with the Cutie Special (6:25).
3. 3 Way Match: Yuu defeated Azusa Takigawa and Itoh Maki when Yuu submitted Takigawa with an Achilles Tendon Lock (9:37).

5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Yuna Manase with a Running Hip Attack (7:52).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Magical Girl Splash (17:15).

Round 1 of the Tokyo Princess Cup is in the books. Yuka Sakazaki continues her run of success after winning the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title by knocking Miyu Yamashita out of the tournament. This is the first time Sakazaki has ever beaten Yamashita in a singles match.

Rika Tatsumi has had poor luck in this tournament before today. She missed the first two instalments due to injury then was eliminated in the 1st Round last year. This time however she advanced with a win over Yuna Manase. Tatsumi avoided the Kakato Drop and countered it with a Dragon Screw, then hit a Hip Attack for the win. Tatsumi will face Sakazaki in the next round.

Maho Kurone tried to intimidate Syoko Nakajima before their match by shouting “I love pain!” at her. The Northern Lights Suplex didn’t work so Nakajima busted out a Diving Senton to put the zombie away. Nakajima used the move before from the 2nd rope but today was the first time she did it off the top. She now has Itoh Maki as her next round opponent.

In an upset, Mizuki pinned Nonoko with the Cutie Special after Nonoko missed a Splash. Mizuki faces Azusa Takigawa in Round 2.

In the battle between bodybuilding and Ping Pong dance exercises, bodybuilding won. Reika Saiki pinned Nodoka-oneesan with the Jackhammer, a move she intends to use on Yuu in the next round!

Azusa Takigawa and Itoh Maki put their idol related differences aside to try and beat Yuu. The plan failed when Yuu grabbed both of them by the legs and applied a double Achilles Tendon Lock. Takigawa yelled at Itoh to give up first but then she went and tapped out instead. After the match Itoh took the microphone and talked about her challenge to the actresses from the Tofu Pro Wrestling TV show. She is still waiting for an answer. Now she wants to get a response from Yasushi Akimoto, the music producer behind AKB48. She knows she is disliked by other idols and that is the reason why she’s been exiled from LinQ. But in the long run, Itoh will revolutionise both the idol world and the pro wrestling world!

Solo Darling will debut for Tokyo Joshi Pro on the 26th August Korakuen Hall show.

7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Yuu (c) with the Magical Girl Splash (20:07).
*Yuu fails in V5. Yuka Sakazaki becomes the 3rd TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

Yuka Sakazaki is your new TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion! The magic girl served Yuu her first pinfall loss in pro wrestling when she countered the Last Ride into a DDT. Sakazaki then hit two Magical Girl Splashes with the second including a twist to win the match. In her victory speech she said she wanted the title back when Miyu Yamashita was the first champion but she couldn’t beat her for it. She credited her training excursion for making her strong enough to beat Yuu. She’s finally arrived at the top and she is enjoying the view.

At last SIN Biishiki-gun’s foul play has blown up in their faces. When the referee was knocked out by a mop, Dr. Hayashi filled his hands with powder and threw it at Rika Tatsumi. However Tatsumi dodged it and Martha got blinded instead! Tatsumi put Martha in the Dragon Sleeper and Martha gave up when the referee got back into the match. The Dragon Bombers celebrated beating SIN Biishiki-gun once and for all while Saki-nami complained to Dr. Hayashi. That’s not all. Dr. Hayashi told Saki that she has been infected by a disease and must return to Paris immediately to get treatment. After they left, Tatsumi thanked Maho Kurone for fighting with her. Their team will not end here because they still have a story to tell. She asked Kurone what she would like for a celebration meal. Kurone said she wanted human. Tatsumi thinks there’s a place in Kabukicho where they can get it.

Syoko Nakajima has high goals set in place and beating Reika Saiki is just the start of it. She wants to reach the final of the Tokyo Princess Cup for the fourth time in a row and become the first person to win it twice. From there she will challenge for the TOKYO Princess Title.

Nonoko brought out photographs of her and Yuna Manase’s gravure work from 10 years ago. Nonoko said that she hasn’t changed much since then but Manase definitely has. She rubbed the photos against Manase’s face during the match but her insults backfired. Nonoko lost the match when she slipped on the photos and Manase hit the Kakato Drop for the pin.

Azusa Takigawa turned back the clock and returned to her singing days by reforming her idol duo Aime with her friend CHIKA. They performed their song “Summer Mode ☆” then Takigawa had her match with Itoh Maki. During the match Takigawa got on the microphone and took out a CD. She said it was a LinQ album and if Maki really loves LinQ then she should come take it off her. It was a ploy by Takigawa to try and count out Maki but she made it back to the ring at the 19 count. They fought each other outside the ring again and this time both of them were counted out. Maki asked Tetsuya Koda for the match to restart but she was denied due to time constraints. Both Maki and Takigawa kicked at Koda then told each other they won’t lose next time.

Maki came back out during intermission and was expected to promote the Korakuen Hall show on 26th August. Instead she called out Weekly Playboy magazine for not asking her to appear in the Joshi Wrestling feature from the latest issue. She will wear any sweaty swimsuit, do any pose and eat any banana in a photoshoot to be in the magazine!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN KASUKABE”, 14/05/2017
Saitama Kasukabe Hall
241 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Cutie Special (7:31).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Nonoko and Maho Kurone when Manase pinned Nonoko with the Neck Screw (7:16).
3. Miyu Yamashita defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Attitude Adjustment (10:24).
4. Saki-nami defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Two Step Face Kick (12:23).
5. Yuu & Syoko Nakajima defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Reika Saiki when Nakajima pinned Saiki with the Northern Lights Suplex (15:19).

After an 8 month absence, Yuka Sakazaki returned to Tokyo Joshi Pro to have her preparation match with Yuu. But the result involved the other big match up for the 4th June show. Syoko Nakajima avoided Reika Saiki’s Tower Bridge and pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex. After the match Nakajima told Saiki that next time she will beat her on her own. Yuu welcomed Sakazaki back but said she will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title against her.

Rika Tatsumi kept her promise and brought a doctor to inspect Martha’s true identity. But it wasn’t just any doctor, it was Masayuki Hayashi! Dr. Hayashi is one of the most famous ring doctors in pro wrestling, mostly known for his appearances in New Japan. Despite Saki-nami’s protests, Dr. Hayashi dragged Martha backstage while the match began. They reappeared late in the match to announce the medical results. Hayashi concluded that Martha is indeed an 8 year old girl. Foul play was considered then proven when Dr. Hayashi blinded Tatsumi with powder after the referee was knocked down. Saki-nami hit the Two Step Face Kick to steal the victory then repeated Dr. Hayashi’s results to boos. Tatsumi complained about Dr. Hayashi’s betrayal and challenged Saki to another match on 4th June. Saki would only accept if the Dragon Bombers would split up when they lose. Tatsumi fired back demanding SIN Biishiki-gun to dissolve if the Bombers win. Saki accepted and offered Dr. Hayashi to accompany her for the match. He seemed rather enamored with her so it looks like that’s a yes. In a backstage interview Dr. Hayashi admitted he had doubts over what Martha was. He originally thought Martha was a 3 year old girl… Meanwhile the Dragon Bombers are determined not to lose because they have a T-shirt going on sale soon and disbanding would cancel that product.

Azusa Takigawa announced she will be bringing back her “legendary” underground idol unit Aime on 4th June. The unit was formed 10 years ago and consisted only of Takigawa and Shuko Matsuda. Their first and only single was called “Summer Mode ☆”. Takigawa is resurrecting Aime because she wants to show Itoh Maki who the real top idol in Tokyo Joshi is.

Nonoko carried an issue of Tokyo Sports newspaper in her hands during the 3 Way Match. She ended up wearing it over her neck and shoulders to mock Yuna Manase because Manase hesitated to do anything that would damage the paper. What Nonoko didn’t expect was for Maho Kurone to attack her from behind and tear the paper off her. Manase then hit the Neck Screw on Nonoko to win the match. Nonoko still thinks she deserves to be Miss Tokyo Sports instead of Manase. She accused Manase of having fake boobs and challenged her to compare their bust measurements at Toyko Sports HQ.

Isaacs explained that when he used the Lip Lock on Antonio Honda during their match at the weekend he felt comfortable with the action. Although he worked hard in America he was never happy with the situation he was in. But when he came to Japan and met Dino he was convinced to come out as gay. Dino explained that he saw the gay wrestler in Isaacs and felt a little outraged that Isaacs was holding it back. So to help him out he brought him to this bar and asked the owner Mr. Takuya if Isaacs can become accepted as a gay wrestler. Takuya said of course he would, he can even reach high enough to be No. 1! Isaacs said that even though he currently holds a Right To Challenge contract, he knows that everyone is more interested in his “Miracle Ass”. He then showed some examples of what he is talking about by using his ass to cut a banana in half, open a bottle of champagne and cook raw eggs. Dino, Takuya and Amon Tsurumi tasted each of the food and were delighted by the taste! Isaacs said everyone will get to see the Miracle Ass in action before he cashes in his RTC contract.

Welcome to The Future! DDT celebrated 20 years in business by running the main stage of Saitama Super Arena for “JUDGEMENT 2017”. In the main event the torch was passed as the 21 year old Konosuke Takeshita defeated HARASHIMA to become the KO-D Openweight Champion for the second time in his career. The biggest stage called for a major main event and both wrestlers delivered with a 30 minute long clash. HARASHIMA’s neck was targeted early and his title reign was under threat when Takeshita gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster on the arena floor. HARASHIMA was left outside to get counted out but he returned on 18. He then turned the tables by avoiding a Dragon Suplex and attacking Takeshita’s knees. The damaged limb would later prevent Takeshita from hitting the German Suplex because HARASHIMA would grab onto them. A Short Range Lariat kept him down for a two count but that only riled HARASHIMA up and made him provoke Takeshita to attack even harder. Takeshita went high risk by placing HARASHIMA on the top turnbuckle. That backfired when HARASHIMA turned it into an Avalanche Reverse Frankensteiner followed by the Somato! Takeshita kicked out at two so HARASHIMA went for the Swan Dive Somato. Takeshita caught him in mid-air but HARASHIMA twisted around for another Reverse Frankensteiner. This time Takeshita blocked it and gave HARASHIMA a Croyt’s Wrath style German Suplex for a nearfall. HARASHIMA took control again and this time gave Takeshita the Yama-ori head drop. With both men completely spent they traded Elbow Smashes until Takeshita punched the champion and followed up with the Bionic Elbow taken from his mentor Antonio Honda. He hit the German Suplex but HARASHIMA was still able to kick out. Finally Takeshita crossed HARASHIMA’s arms together for one more German Suplex and this time the champion was down for the count.

Takeshita thanked HARASHIMA after the match. Takeshita became a pro wrestler because he loves DDT so to be in the main event for the company’s 20th Anniversary means everything to him. He feels the pressure of being the future of this company but he will show everyone why he deserves that title as DDT moves into its 21st year. When the new champion finished the prize ceremony he was approached by Daisuke Sasaki and Tetsuya Endo. Sasaki said he knew Takeshita would beat HARASHIMA then pretended to cry. In truth, he doesn’t care about Takeshita’s accomplishment. DAMNATION will finish him and to prove it his first challenger will be Tetsuya Endo! Takeshita’s former friend said he does not know what the future really is but he’s not interested. In fact, the future he sees now is an eyesore. Takeshita accepted the challenge and they will get their match at Korakuen Hall on 29th April. The show then ended with a curtain call to DDT’s old theme song “Into The Light”. The final scene in the ring had Takeshita and HARASHIMA fist bump and agree to wrestle each other again some day. HARASHIMA went to leave the ring but Takeshita stopped him so they could leave together.

The weapons in the DDT Extreme Title match were provided by a company called Seki-chu and boy did Jun Kasai and Daisuke Sasaki use a lot of them. Tables, ladders, chairs, trash cans, rakes and even a wire mesh fence were used throughout the match. Sasaki came out on top but he had to put his body on the line to do so. Kasai was still alive and kicking after an Avalanche Power Bomb from the ladder through the fence. Even the NOW OR NEVER couldn’t put Kasai away. So Sasaki had to put Kasai on a table and climb up the ladder. With his last words being “I am Charisma!” Sasaki jumped off the ladder and hit a Diving Elbow Drop on Kasai. The table didn’t break but Kasai did and Sasaki became the new Extreme Champion! He threw the belt away, claiming he does not need it. He has words to say to Kasai, many of them that cannot be broadcast on TV but he cannot deny Kasai was at his craziest today. Still, Sasaki won’t conform. He won’t kiss ass. And he definitely won’t get married. “We are DAMNATION! And I am the Charisma, Daisuke Sasaki!”

Saitama Super Arena was taken back to the Romance Of The Three Kingdoms for a special 6-Man Tag promoting the Nobunaga’s Ambition video game. The series produce Kou Shibusawa greeted the audience before the match, telling everyone to enjoy video games and pro wrestling. All the wrestlers took part in their character costumes. Sanshiro Takagi wasted no time in building a castle of chairs in the ring. It was no surprise to anyone that he was thrown into the castle later. Isami Kodaka took out Daisuke Sekimoto with a Topé Suicida. Keiji Muto and Jun Akiyama faced off and had a stalemate when Akiyama hit the Exploder Suplex then Muto immediately fired back with the Shining Wizard. That left Kota Ibushi to give Takagi the Sit Down Last Ride followed by the Phoenix Splash to win the match.

When the segment was over Takagi stayed in the ring for an important announcement. He is happy to see so many people come out to see DDT’s 20th Anniversary. There is nothing left for him to do so he will retire immediately. Even though he is going away he is confident that DDT will grow bigger and bigger without him. He has no regrets even though he had announced a major goal at the 15th Anniversary show in Budokan Hall that never came to pass. He demanded the staff at ringside to give him the 10 bell salute and thanked everyone he could during each ringing of the bell. On the 8th toll he suddenly received a phone call. It turns out there is something left for him to do after all. Suddenly a picture of the Tokyo Dome appeared on the screen. Takagi announced that DDT will hold a Street Wrestling Match inside the Tokyo Dome later this year! Takagi immediately cancelled his plans to retire. There are still dreams and ambitions for DDT to come true!

Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi overcame an ambush by DAMNATION to keep the KO-D Tag Team Titles over their shoulders. Even though Sakaguchi’s goal for the match was to kill Endo, he instead settled with pinning Shuji Ishikawa to win the match. Not an easy feat at all! Ishikawa blocked the Right Knee Of God the first time so Sakaguchi had to climb the turnbuckles and hit an elevated version of his finisher to put the big dog down. Their victory ceremony was interrupted when Danshoku Dino snuck into the ring and gave the match sponsor a Lip Lock. Dino told Funaki he’s made a lot of enemies over his career but he has never fought a hybrid body like Dino’s, nor has he fought a real Dramatic Dream Team like Danshoku Dino & Yoshihiro Takayama! Dino is here to lay out the challenge. Real No Fear wants the KO-D Tag Team Titles! Funaki realised the match is unavoidable. He and Sakaguchi will fight Real No Fear. But until then the champions will drink.

There is a lot to go through for the next match. A lot! At some point in the show Joey Ryan won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. I’ll get into more detail with that later. For now just know that Ryan now had to defend the championship against Danshoku Dino in an Anal Explosion Death Match. But first, Donald Trump appeared for a complete English PowerPoint presentation. Trump revealed that the most powerful person in DDT is not the president Sanshiro Takagi or the KO-D Champion HARASHIMA. It is really the referee Yukinori Matsui! If there is one thing that Matsui hates more than anything else in wrestling it is explicit sexual humour. Do too much of it in front of Matsui and you will get fired. However Dino is the “World’s Strongest Gay Wrestler” and Ryan is the “World’s Strongest Penis Fighter”. Matsui will watch the match backstage so they need to find a way to wrestle explicitly in a way that won’t offend him. Somehow, some way, an Anal Explosion Death Match is acceptable because in this situation “ANAL” stands for “All Nations Anal Love”. If that wasn’t enough, Ryan revealed that Dino’s friend and former Iron Man Champion Ryota Yamazato has been kidnapped by foreign agents. In 20 minute’s time Yamazato’s rear end will be used for the Anal Explosion unless Dino can win the match before then.

The time began to count down and the match was ready to begin. But first the National Anthems of America and Japan had to be played. Additional commentary was provided by Trump and Guanchulo in English, Hoshitango in Spanish and Rekka in Chinese. As the match went on Matsui kept a close eye on the action from backstage. Dino and Ryan fought up the ramp towards the commentary stations. Ryan’s penis flung Dino off the ramp and crashing through the Spanish announce table. Dino was later thrown off the top turnbuckle and he crashed through the Chinese table. The commentators were so mad that they attacked Ryan but he fought them off with his penis. When Dino recovered he gathered the commentators in the ring and placed them on the corner turnbuckles with their backsides exposed. He then overpowered Dino’s penis, getting revenge for the spot that caused all this in the first place. By the time he put the Lip Lock on Ryan, Matsui had seen enough and made his way to the ring. Trump realised the match was in danger of being cancelled so he sprinted backstage. Some of the DNA wrestlers distracted Matsui by treating him like a celebrity, shaking his hand and asking for autographs. Then a mascot blocked his path but Matsui knocked it down with one punch. He then shook its hand. Matsui walked past the women’s locker room and the temptation to peak inside was too much. When it turned out that Cherry was the only person in there Matsui was grossed out and moved on. Finally Trump caught up with Matsui and confronted him. They chopped each other back and forth until they both leaned in closer and closer. Then they kissed. Back in the ring Dino pulled Ryan’s lollipop out of one of the commentator’s backside and he then put it in Ryan’s mouth. That stunned Ryan long enough for Dino to do the Danshoku Driver for the victory. The two congratulated each other after the match and Ryan handed both the Iron Man Title and the bomb button over to Dino. Dino threw the button away and left his buddy Yamazato to get his ass exploded with three firecrackers outside the building. The screen went blank and we’re left with the message “There can be no peace on earth without pro wrestling” along with a picture of Sanshiro Takagi naked. Backstage Dino and Ryan started to act like friends but quickly started fighting again over the Iron Man Title.

Shungo Oyama did well in his debut but ultimately fell to Yoshihiro Takayama. The two locked up and threw punches in a scene that resembled Takayama’s famous fight with Don Frye. The slugfest ended with Takayama pinning Oyama with the Everest German Suplex. Dick Togo respected Oyama’s effort and noticed Oyama respects pro wrestling enough to fear it. KUDO hopes to team with Oyama again if Oyama decides to continue wrestling. Oyama said he felt at home fighting in Saitama Super Arena again.

Miyu Yamashita has caught Meiko Satomura’s attention but she’ll probably wish she hadn’t. Satomura pinned Yamashita to win the women’s match for her team but their interaction did not end there. Yamashita stood up to her from the apron after the match and Satomura’s reaction was to kick her away. In the post-match interview Satomura said she see will never forget what she saw in Yamashita’s eyes today. She’s motivated, that’s for sure. She would like to fight her one on one. Satomura’s partners however she is more friendly with. She felt a sense of unity with Saki Akai and Syoko Nakajima throughout the match. Akai admitted feeling a little of jealous of Yamashita for firing up Satomura. Aja Kong thought Nakajima was okay but small. Cherry was happy to wrestle in front of many fans and she appreciates the women coming together for this show when she previously spent years as the only female wrestler in DDT.

In the match between Shigehiro Irie and Mike Bailey, the Tazzmission proved to be the difference maker. Irie caught Bailey with the submission hold in mid-air and turned it into a Camel Clutch variat to make Speedball tap out. Irie still isn’t finished with his warrior training but at least he got to show everyone in Japan that his trips to America are not going to waste. Irie credited Ohio’s Rockstar Pro Wrestling in particular for his recent improvement. Bailey says Irie is now on the same level as HARASHIMA and Takeshita.

In the 8-Man Tag Match, Yuni found an opportunity to wear the Hirata GO! glasses and start dancing. Kazuki Hirata ruined the moment by knocking Yuni out with a chop to the back of the neck. Hirata put the glasses on and cleared the ring with his dance fighting. But he was then stopped with a Triple Dropkick from Jaguar Yokota, Keisuke Ishii & Masahiro Takanashi. Yuni then pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana.

The 3 Way Trios match for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles was a crazy sprint but NωA came out of it with the belts. Yasu Urano countered Kazusada Higuchu’s Power Bomb into a Frankensteiner but Urano was then knocked down by MAO’s Screw Kick. Urano avoided the Firebird Splash from Shunma Katsumata but didn’t see MAO coming with the Cannonball 450. That move won NωA the championship and all three were in tears when they were handed the belts.

Many wrestlers from DDT’s past, some unexpected, came back for the Dramatic Rumble with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and King Of Dark Title both on the line. MIKAMI was out first with his ladder. Daichi Kakimoto was a surprise entrant wearing the mask he used in his Union Pro run. Poison Sawada JULIE eliminated loads of people with his snake magic. Unfortunately his endurance is not what it used to be and he fainted from overuse. Gorgeous Matsuno eliminated JULIE by accident when DJ Nira (who was not an official participant) pushed Matsuno on top of JULIE with his umbrella. Mad Paulie eliminated Gota Ihashi which means Ihashi is still the King Of Dark Champion. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi stood on top of Kotatsu and leapt off it to deliver a super Michinoku Driver II to Yoshihiko. Kotatsu eliminated a few wrestlers with its comfy quilt until Guanchulo decided to wear Kotatsu over him like a backpack. Munenori Sawa was the last surprise entrant. He hit Guanchulo with a Rabbit Punch and Guanchulo fell on top of Kotatsu. That counted as a pin so Guanchulo won the Iron Man Title. Ken Ohka was the final entrant but he and Sawa spent so long singing to his entrance music that Guanchulo eliminated them both to win the Rumble. His celebration was short lived when Yoshihiko dove on top of him from the stage to win the belt. Later on in the show Kotatsu won the title by pinning Yoshihiko backstage. Joey Ryan congratulated Kotatsu then used his penis strength to flip it over and claim the title for himself.

Mil Clown was accidentally unmasked during the Tokyo Joshi Pro dark match. Her mask flew off when Azusa Takaigawa gave her the X Factor. As much as she tried to hide her face, Clown eventually gave up and focused on beating Takigawa with the Magical Merry Go Round followed by the Mil Clutch α. Clown fled the ring as soon as she got her mask back on.

Naomi Yoshimura continues his aggressive streak by winning the DNA dark match for his team.

Kota Umeda was invited to the ring during the opening announcements. He was at the show as Yoshihiko’s handler but informed everyone that his recovery is going well and he will return to the ring this year. The other injured DNA wrestler Suguru Miyatake was supposed to be at the show but had to miss it because of the flu.

Naomichi Marufuji will participate at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” in Sumo Hall on 20th August.
