4. KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda when KUDO pinned Honda with the Diving Double Knee Drop (10:04).
5. The Strongest Oyaji Decision Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Tanomusaku Toba by Knockout with a Right High Kick (6:18).
6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino when Endo pinned Iino with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (16:20).
7. Nagoya Specialty! Miso Stew Special Tag Match: Meiko Satomura & HARASHIMA defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when HARASHIMA pinned Watase with the Somato (12:09).

Meiko Satomura gave Shigehiro Irie the Death Valley Bomb then held him back while HARASHIMA pinned Mizuki Watase with the Somato. Satomura told the crowd afterward that she wants to appeal her way of life in DDT because she has pride in what she has accomplished in joshi.

A missed Spear ruined ALL OUT’s chances of beating DAMNATION in their latest showdown. Yuki Iino targeted Tetsuya Endo but a well timed dodge led Iino Spearing into Konosuke Takeshita instead. Endo capitalised with the Handspring Leg Lariat and Swivel Torture Rack Bomb to win.

Yukio Sakaguchi and Tanomusaku Toba both focused on trying to get either a knockout win or a submission over the other. A clash between Sakaguchi’s High Kick and Toba’s Right Hook ended in Sakaguchi’s favour and Yukinori Matsui stopped the match when Toba hit the canvas with no sign of recovery. After the match Sakaguchi reminisced about the old days and thanked Toba for bringing him back to his entry to DDT 6 years ago. He asked for another match sometime but Toba pleaded with him not to do it. Shuten-dōji then invited Toba to join them for a toast but they did not have a drink for him, so Toba grabbed tea from a spectator.

Before the DDT Video Group 3 Way Match began, Yumehito Imanari revealed that he is quitting his role in the team and part of it is Super Sasadango Machine’s fault! Norikazu Fujioka pleaded with him to change his mind otherwise the entire team would collapse without him. Imanari then proposed to change the match into a 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match. If Imanari loses to Sasadango & Fujioka then he will not quit the Video Team. Fujioka tried to stand up and act tough but Sasadango reminded him he doesn’t have the body or the training to wrestle. Fujioka proved Sasadango wrong by doing a Hurricanrana. Unfortunately he did it to Sasadango instead of Imanari. That led to Imanari hitting Sasadango with the Chubby Knee to win the match. Sasadango accepted defeat and said he and Fujioka will do their best to run DDT’s video production without Imanari. However Imanari had a change in heart and decided he will keep working with them when he can while he wrestles for Ganbare☆Wrestling.

Kazuki Hirata survived the Miracle Ecstasy from Makoto Oishi. He then countered the Jikiden Tornado Clutch into the Miracle One Shot Cradle to get DISASTER BOX the win. This was good progress for the Hirata, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno as they prepare for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match next month.

A big entertainment news story in Japan currently is the retirement of singer Namie Amuro. The DDT wrestler most effected by this news is Nobuhiro Shimatani. He wanted to sing her songs because her music changed his entire life. Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga did what they could to stop him. Booing 2018 won the match and to add insult to injury, sang and danced along to one of Namie Amuro’s songs afterwards. Takagi didn’t know the lyrics so he just hummed along to the music.

7. Isami Kodaka defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Isamuashi Zan (27:11).

Even though this show was put together to celebrate Masahiro Takanashi’s 15th anniversary in wrestling, he only appeared for the main event match against Isami Kodaka. He never came out at the start of the show, instead nominating Sayaka Obihiro to give the opening speech. After the main event, he bowed in the centre of the ring to every side of the building then made his exit. KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi closed out the show with a speech on his behalf. He didn’t stick around for any backstage interviews either. Kodaka said that the generation that he and Takanashi are a part of still need to step up against the younger wrestlers.

There was a nostalgic theme to the show with a lot of former DDT wrestlers showing up. Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba were the mystery trio taking on KUDO, HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka. Everyone shook hands with each other after the match, but slapped Ken Ohka when he tried to shake them.

The UMA Corps targeted Saki Akai earlier in the week by sending one of their monsters to stalk her. Today she got to face off against the Chupacabra as part of a colourful 10-Man Tag Match also featuring the returns of T2Hide, Gota Ihashi, the Brahman BrothersGorgeous Matsuno and Emi Sakura. Ihashi wanted to protect Akai but the other team easily beat him up. Kazuki Hirata brought back the Hirata GO! glasses and danced to his music. The song annoyed the Brahman Brothers because it brought back bad memories from their Toryumon lives. Brahman Shu threw a briefcase at Akai but she ducked and it hit Chupacabra instead. Akai then pinned Chupacabra with a Diving Body Press. The Brahmans fled after the match but the UMA leader Miyako Haru warned Akai that the UMA are everywhere like a black shadow. Hirata interrupted her by giving Hirata GO! glasses to everyone and they all danced.

Both MAO and DJ Nira kept putting Daisuke Kiso in harm’s way. They kept blaming each other until Kiso took one bump too many and called off the match for his own safety.

The Tag Gauntlet had plenty on offer. Makoto Oishi & Cherry were ambushed by Antonio Honda & Riho at the start. Riho later saved Honda from getting pinned by hitting Oishi with the Somato, rolling Honda back on top for the three count. Konosuke Takeshita did not hesitate to fight Riho one on one. Honda & Riho hit each other with Bionic Elbows when Yasu Urano dodged them. Urano then threw Honda out of the ring to eliminated that team. Takeshita tried to use Rekka’s Nishinari Elbow against him but missed. Takeshita was able to pin him with a Lariat afterwards. The mystery team were revealed to be Danshoku Dieno & Yoshihiko with Yusuke Inokuma as Yoshihiko’s holder. Inokuma threw Yoshihiko at Takeshita to knock him off the apron and eliminate his team. Dieno & Yoshihiko were then eliminated by Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Inakuma got tangled up in Yoshihiko’s string and accidentally hung himself over the ropes while Katsumata gave Yoshihiko a Piledriver. Rather than count the pin, Yukinori Matsui immediately eliminated Dieno & Yoshihiko to save Inokuma. Hoshitango & Kazusada Higuchi entered in sumo gear and quickly beat ALL OUT. Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Keisuke Ishii were the final entry but they lost out to the sumo team.

Six envelopes were hung above the ring for the main event. Out of the 15 wrestlers fighting over them it was Mizuki Watase, Tetsuya Endo, MAO, Antonio Honda, Ken Ohka and Meiko Satomura who pulled one down each. Kazusada Higuchi went on to win the Battle Royal portion of the match, last pinning his rival Kota Umeda to get the guaranteed KO-D Openweight Title shot on 24th June. After the match each of the prize winners opened their envelopes to discover what they won. Everybody got a Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere gauntlet except for Ohka. He pulled out a piece of paper that said “Punishment Game”. He now has to participate in one for next week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”.

The others can cash in their gauntlet for a KO-D Title match whenever they want between now and 14th October. However if any of them lose a wrestling match in any company they must pass the gauntlet over to the person who beats them. That rule stays in effect until the title match is cashed in. Watase has no intention to use his title shot while Shigehiro Irie is the champion. He will wait until somebody else beats Irie but that totally won’t happen. Endo wants to sell his gauntlet. MAO thinks his gauntlet looks cool so he doesn’t want to get rid of it yet. Honda will wait for the right moment to cash in. Satomura has a busy schedule with Sendai Girls but will keep close attention to DDT in the meantime. She wants to get her title match whenever the opportunity is most attractive to her.

Daisuke Sasaki came to a decision over what kind of match HARASHIMA and Soma Takao will have for the DDT Extreme Title. It’s a match where chairshots and low blows don’t matter. It will be a 3 Way Match with himself included! HARASHIMA realised he will be in a 2-on-1 Handicap then wondered is Sasaki was still injured. Sasaki admitted he was never injured! He took that back when Yukio Sakaguchi threatened him. HARASHIMA accepted the match idea and promised the fans he will definitely win.

The AbemaTV audience got to decide the rules for Danshoku Dieno Vs Tanomusaku Toba. The choices included Normal Rules, Pinfall Only and KO Only but the viewers overwhelmingly chose the last option, Kiss Only. Pins and submissions would only count if the wrestler kissed the opponent in the process. Toba told everyone that he got married in February and he now has stepchildren. His 6th grade stepdaughter accepted him but his 1st grade stepson Yuto refuses to call him Dad. Toba wanted to beat Dieno to earn Yuto’s adoration. He hesitated to follow the Kiss Only rule but he had to do what he had to do. Unfortunately Dieno gave his own Lip Lock to Toba, hit an Exploder Suplex and won the match with the True Danshoku Driver. Dieno used his screen time after the match to speak to Yuto on the stream. Dieno said Toba is not even close to being a great person and he likes to visit Chinese salons to pass the time. But no matter how beaten up he gets, he always stands back up through clenched teeth even though he doesn’t have many teeth left. Toba promised he will make Yuto proud somehow. Dieno gave Toba another Lip Lock and he fell down, exposing his ass to the camera.

Makoto Oishi lived up to last week’s ruling and had his head shaved into a Reverse Mohawk. He defended the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Yoshihiko in a hard fought battle that ended in defeat. Oishi gave Yoshihiko a Turnbuckle Bomb then he climbed the turnbuckles for Corner Punches. Yoshihiko grabbed Oishi and Power Bombed him into the centre of the ring. It then hit the Resurrection for the three count to become the champion. Oishi swore revenge. At least on the bright side his new wife Misaki Ohata likes the hairstyle.

Shunma Katsumata says he is already feeling great after a week working out in Gold’s Gym. Konosuke Takeshita noticed Katsumata was more confident today and that added a sense of security surrounding their team.

The show began with a new commercial for the Suntory drink Jasmine Tea starring Kota Ibushi and Yuki Ueno. In the ad Ueno plays a salaryman who experiences a refreshing sensation from drinking Jasmine Tea that is represented by Ibushi giving him different wrestling moves.

Tokyo Toshimaen
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

5. Sanshiro Takagi, Ippanjin Munenori Sawa & Meiko Satomura defeated Danshoku Dieno, Isami Kodaka & Cassandra Miyagi when Satomura pinned Dieno with the Scorpio Rising (33:35).

By day the Tokyo Toshimaen is an amusement park full of fun and games. But at night it transforms into a secret battlefield designed to train warriors. Today DDT made use of the park to determine Japan’s national team for the Fighting World Cup, a mysterious global competition that is held every four years. Teams made up of two men and one woman would fight each other in battles to the death throughout the night. Danshoku Dieno arrived at the park with his selection of troops: Raiden (Choun-Shiryu), Makoto Oishi, Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Cherry and Cassandra Miyagi. It didn’t take long for their first set of opponents to appear.

The first bout was Oishi, Raiden & Miyagi against HARASHIMA, Gota Ihashi & Makoto. When the girls fought each other Makoto would intentionally use moves on Cassandra that allowed her to do sexy poses in the process. Cassandra then challenged Makoto to a race. She would sit on a cart pushed by Raiden while Makoto found a bike to cycle on. Makoto won. HARASHIMA appeared with traffic cones over his arms that he used to Lariat his opponents. He ran from a long distance over to Oishi to give him the Somato but Oishi moved out of the way. HARASHIMA hit Ihashi instead by accident and Oishi pinned Ihashi to win the match. Dieno’s group past their first trial but not without casualties. Both Raiden and Miyagi died from their injuries after the match.

Dieno’s group advanced to the plaza. Waiting for them were Mike Bailey, MAO & Tsukasa Fujimoto all standing in hero poses. Dieno sent Takeshita, Katsumata & Cherry to fight them. Bailey and Katsumata fought their way over to a pond allegedly filled with sulphuric acid. Katsumata fell into it when he missed a flying kick and was never seen again. The fighting moved back towards the plaza stage where Takeshita found himself in a 3 on 1 situation. However he was able to fight against the odds and he pinned MAO with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster. Again the damage dealt to Dieno’s side during the battle proved to be too much and Takeshita collapsed. His final words to his friends before losing consciousness were “Muscle is justice!”

There was no time to mourn because Kazusada Higuchi, Tanomusaku Toba & Misaki Ohata were next to challenge our heroes. Dieno began to panic because there were no more women left on his team to fight for him. The cavalry of Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai arrived in a truck just in time to fight Higuchi, Toba & Ohata. The battle was horrific to see as the savage warriors took to the rides and had the time of their lives… Anyway when they were done sampling the fun of the park they went back to fighting. Takanashi lured Higuchi and Toba onto the truck’s loading platform and ordered Sakaguchi to raise it. Sakaguchi did so and the fighters slid off as the platform tilted over. Akai climbed the truck and dove onto everyone below. She stayed on top of both Higuchi and Toba to pin them.

The dust settled but Sakaguchi didn’t. In a rage of bloodlust, Sakaguchi grabbed a sledgehammer and threatened to kill Ohata with it. Suddenly Makoto Oishi stepped in between them. He pleaded with Sakaguchi to spare her because they are dating! Oishi then turned to Ohata and placed a metal nut on her finger. “Misaki-san, please marry me!” Ohata punched Oishi. Sakaguchi got back into the truck and drove towards Ohata but Oishi jumped in front of the truck! “I’m dying! I love you! I will make you happy!” were Oishi’s words to Ohata afterwards. Ohata accepted Oishi’s proposal and they got on the truck to go get married!

Back to the death battles. Akai decided to stay and help Dieno’s team but an arrow from out of nowhere struck her in the head and killed her. Once again Dieno was without enough warriors to continue until King Otono (Choun-Shiryu again) and Space Warrior Galaxy Sophia (Cherry) appeared along with a revived Takeshita. They approached the park square where they found DAMNATION hanging out. Daisuke Sasaki was making out with Asuka while the others were just minding their own business until they saw Dieno’s team stepping into their territory. Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Asuka decided to fight them while Dieno, Sasaki and Soma Takao went over to enjoy a rollercoaster. Paulie perched himself on a bench so both Endo and Asuka could do Moonsaults off of him until Takeshita hit him with a Knee Strike. Takeshita then put Paulie through a table with a Diving Body Press from a Ladder. That ended the match but the damage took its toll again. Takeshita was left clutching his knee while screaming “Muscle is justice!” over to Dieno.

And so Dieno approached the final area for one more battle but he was alone. All of his friends and allies were either slain or on their honeymoon. Luckily for him Isami Kodaka appeared with a resurrected Cassandra Miyagi. Both were willing to help Dieno so they could take part in an exciting battle. Waiting for them were Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin Munenori Sawa. Behind them was the massive Flying Pirate ride and standing right there inside it was Meiko Satomura. The two sides fought until Kodaka asked if he could go on the Flying Pirate ride. They all agreed and went on the ride. Some of them felt sick after the ride but were encouraged by the crowd to go on it a second time. This is why the match lasted half an hour!

They eventually got back to fighting. Takagi, Sawa & Satomura climbed a bench to attempt the Sendai Golden Shower but Miyagi cut them off. Dieno positioned himself for the Hell Gate and Miyagi threw both Takagi and Sawa into it. She tried to do the same to Satomura but it was countered and Satomura threw Miyagi into Dieno’s backside. Kodaka climbed a ladder and hit the Giga Ladder Break Diving Double Knee Drop on Takagi. The wrestlers found a merry-go-round and went for a ride on that. They had a lot more fun on that than on the Flying Pirate ship. When they got off Takagi gave Dieno the Stunner, Sawa gave Dieno the Shining Wizard and Satomura gave Dieno the Scorpio Rising for the three count.

The challenge is over and Japan’s team has been decided. Team Hentai Sendai Big Boss are Japan’s strongest warriors! A signboard used as a symbol of real power was given to them but suddenly Satomura attacked Takagi & Sawa! She takes the signboard from them and calls the other women to join her side. Toshimaen belongs to them! Dieno collapsed in shock as the show was completed.

Satomura said she had fun doing street wrestling for the first time. It was dangerous but she enjoyed it and learned how any location can become a battlefield. She wants to fight in DDT and appear on AbemaTV more, it doesn’t matter if it to wrestle against men or women. Hisaya Imabayashi heard her and came up with an idea. He invited her to the 29th May episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” so she can compete in the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble. Satomura agreed. She later expressed interest in also having a match against Isami Kodaka.

2. Miyu Yamashita & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Nodoka-oneesan & Yuki Kamifuku when Yamashita pinned Kamifuku with the Crash Rabbit Heat (3:54).
3. HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Kota Umeda defeated Naomi Yoshimura, Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo when HARASHIMA pinned Jo with the Somato (7:43).
4. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Tanomusaku Toba when Takeshita pinned Toba with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a Watermelon (12:20).
5. Reika Saiki & Lady Beard defeated Makoto Oishi & Maki Ito when Saiki submitted Oishi with the Tower Bridge (6:00).
6. Danshoku Dino & Fuji-kyun defeated Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi when Dino pinned Ihashi with the Danshoku Driver (3:57).
7. Danshoku Dino, Kazusada Higuchi, Mike Bailey & MAO defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Dino pinned Takagi with the Danshoku Driver onto a Chair (7:43).

Danshoku Dino recently revealed his intentions of running for a seat in the Kanagawa City Council because he is “a pure white heart wanting change in the local government”. That struck a nerve with Sanshiro Takagi because of a failed political campaign that he himself was a part of in the same area during the 1990s. To this day the mere sight of his campaign poster is enough to give him PTSD. Dino announced his intention to visit Kanagawa today to meet the locals and Takagi promised to meet him there for a Street Pro Wrestling match.

Dino’s visit brought him to the Fujisawa Meiten Building as part of a livestream on AbemaTV. With him was his cabinet of wrestlers: his secretary Makoto Oishi, the carer of his personal belongings Yuki Ueno, Fujisawa local Yuki Kamifuku, campaign supporter Nodoka-oneesan and town mascot Fuji-kyun. When they approached the Meiten Building Dino learned that the building’s owner Hideyuki Yamada is a powerful figure who can help get Dino what he wants. They were greeted by Akinaga Toyomoto at the entrance. First part of the tour was the bookshop on the 2nd Floor.

Takagi was there in the bookshop along with Toru Owashi waiting for Dino to begin their match. Dino promised Yamada not to get involved in any violence himself so he offered Ueno & Oishi to take his place. Takagi sent Owashi to fight them along with a surprise, Chinsuke Nakamura! Out came Nakamura accompanied by a man with a violin to play Nakamura’s song. The match began and the wrestlers fought around the ordinary customers. Nakamura gave Oishi a Low Blow but Ueno rolled him up with a School Boy for the three count. Throughout the show, AbemaTV had a poll on their site asking viewers if they support Dino’s candidacy. After the first match the poll was 66.2% in favour of Dino.

They moved on to a clothing shop on the 3rd Floor. Miyu Yamashita & Yuka Sakazaki were there browsing through the aisle. Kamifuku told them she heard there were nice clothes on sale here but she would never wear the stuff they were looking at. That sparked Match #2: Kamifuku & Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yamashita & Sakazaki. They fought over to a bookstore where they were warned not to damage any books. Nodoka grabbed a book and held it up to prevent her opponents from attacking her until she was disarmed. Sakazaki piled Nodoka on top of Kamifuki then hit the Magical Girl Splash from a stool. Yamashita then pinned Kamifuku with the Crash Rabbit Heat. The girls all got along afterwards and ditched the others so they could go get tea on the 1st Floor.

Dino went up to the stationary shop on the 4th Floor and bumped into the Naomi Kingdom. He caught Akira Jo trying to shoplift so the Kingdom attacked his cabinet. Dino called for help and it was answered by HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Kota Umeda. A 6-Man Tag Match then took place. There was a string of Headscissors that was turned into a Crab Hold chain. Takao placed a shopping basket over Jo’s head and HARASHIMA hit the Somato for the win. Dino kicked the Naomi Kingdom out of the shop. However his approval score dropped slightly to 63.5%.

A message from Takagi was passed to Dino. It said Takagi was waiting for him in the 1st Floor market. Dino went down and there was Takagi in a sectioned off area. But it was a trap! Tanomusaku Toba appeared out of nowhere and knocked out both Oishi & Ueno. Dino called for help and saw that Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata were nearby having a meal. They expressed support for Dino and agreed to fight Takagi & Toba. They fought each other with chairs, traffic cones and food they bought from the nearby stalls. Takagi knocked Takeshita & Katsumata down in front of a car ride. Takagi got on the car ride wanting to run them over but all it did was rock back and forth. Takagi put Katsumata through a table with a Piledriver but Takeshita won the match by giving Toba a Brainbuster onto a watermelon.

Dino said his goodbyes to ALL OUT and moved on to an outdoor area where he saw Maki Ito arguing with DEADLIFT LOLITA. Both of them claimed they reserved the concert stage for a performance and sharing it wasn’t an option. Dino suggested they have a match to decide and ordered Oishi to be Ito’s partner. Ito did a stage dive onto everyone below. Oishi and Reika Saiki got back onto the stage and Saiki submitted Oishi with the Tower Bridge. She and Lady Beard got to sing while Dino went back inside the building.

All of the fighting so far took its toll on Dino’s cabinet. He was now the only one left as he approached the lecture hall. Inside he found a Smile Therapy session taking place by a man named Mr. Akasaka. The only people in there with him were Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi. They didn’t like Dino’s interruption and attacked him. Despite this, Dino refused to fight back. All looked grim when the mascot Fuji-kyun returned! It convinced Dino that pro wrestling is sport, not violence. Dino agreed and finally began to fight back. Together they defeated Ohka & Ihashi. Dino got to kiss Mr. Akasaka during the match. Afterwards Dino asked where the owner Yamada was. Akasaka said he was on the roof of the building.

Dino went up to the roof but couldn’t find Yamada. Instead there was Takagi and he was accompanied by DAMNATION! He said DAMNATION were now his friends but Daisuke Sasaki confessed that they were only teaming with him because he promised to pay them 15,000 yen. According to Sasaki that is way more money than what DDT usually pays them. Dino was in trouble but he suddenly got help in the forms of Kazusada Higuchi, Mike Bailey & MAO. This was it. The final battle! Tetsuya Endo, Bailey and MAO all did Moonsaults. Mad Paulie squashed some people. Higuchi blocked Sasaki’s Hurricanrana by whipping him into a fence. Takagi’s team got the upper hand and Takagi ordered DAMNATION to finish them off. However Sasaki demanded that they get paid another 15,000 yen as an extra charge. Takagi refused to DAMNATION abandoned him. It was now 4 Vs 1 in Dino’s favour and they all defeated Takagi. Dino’s final approval score was 61.3%.

The group all took a photo together on top of Takagi to use as Dino’s campaign poster. However Dino noticed that Yamada was still nowhere to be seen. A beaten Takagi told Dino where to find him, pointing over to an upper section of the roof. Dino went over and found Yamada sitting on a chair. Dino pleaded with Yamada to make him a City Council member. When Yamada didn’t respond, Dino turned him around and saw that he was dead! Akinaga Toyomoto appeared again and revealed he was spying on Dino all along. Hideyuki Yamada isn’t the most powerful figure in Kanagawa, it is Fuji-kyun! The screen faded to black over a narration explaining that Dino was defeated by Fuji-kyun, ending his political dreams. The end.


BASARA “VAJRA 65 ~FEAST~” Results

April 20, 2018

BASARA “VAJRA 65 ~FEAST~”, 20/04/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
214 Fans

1. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated Daichi Kazato with the Perfect Five (7:53).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Best Stretchman Amazon defeated Gouma Ryu and Hercules Senga when Amazon pinned Ryu and Senga with the Stretch Kick (11:15).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Akiyori Takizawa defeated FUMA, SAGAT & Yusuke Kubo when Tsukamoto pinned Kubo with the Zudon (10:55).
4. Special Single Match: Minoru Fujita defeated Ryuichi Sekine with a Rolling Cradle (10:55).
5. Fuminori Abe Vs Tanomusaku Toba ended in a Double KO (11:15).
6. Isami Kodaka, Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano defeated Naoki Tanizaki, Yuki Aoki & Manabu Hara when Nakano pinned Aoki with a Jumping Rolling Cradle (15:10).

Today was Takato Nakano’s day to win for the first time! He capitalised on Yuki Aoki bumping into a kick from Isami Kodaka by the ropes and pinned Aoki with a Jumping Rolling Cradle. Naoki Tanizaki briefly confronted Kodaka after the match but he left so Nakano could celebrate. Both Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu congratulated Nakano on his achievement and told him it was a big deal. Nakano said he will start running from here to Korakuen Hall for the big show there on 3rd May.

Both Fuminori Abe and Tanomusaku Toba punched each other to their heart’s content. They eventually ran out of that stuff and knocked each other out for a draw. When they both recovered Abe smiled and asked for a rematch.

Minoru Fujita mocked Ryuichi Sekine throughout their match. After the opening back and forth, Fujita asked who was it that trained Sekine. He then called him an “Eternal Trainee” while kicking him. Fujita’s experience was the difference maker and he caught Sekine in a Rolling Cradle for the win. After the match Fujita told Sekine that they have a big tag team match against each other coming up on 3rd May. He asked Sekine & Nakatsu not to miss this opportunity to beat himself and Ikuto Hidaka. Fujita claims that he and Hidaka were nominated for the Best Tag Team category during last year’s Tokyo Sports Awards. He does not want Cavalry to damage this honour.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi asked for the 8-Man Tag Team Match on 3rd May between BASARA and the Metal Family to be held under Elimination Rules. Takumi Tsukamoto and Yasu Urano were confused by Hiroshi’s new spiritual behaviour but they accepted the request.

Best Stretchman Amazon was on trial accused of sexual harassment towards a female customer in the Best Stretch store. It was difficult to get an explanation from Amazon because he just yelled out his name whenever he was asked a question. Hercules Senga provided a hidden recording of Amazon asking a customer if he could touch her breasts. However the voice in the recording was lower than how Amazon usually speaks. Gouma Ryu asked both Amazon and Daichi Kazato to demonstrate their massage techniques on Senga to see if they are legitimate. No matter where they touched him, Senga claimed he was being sexually harassed. Gouma then made the grave mistake of claiming that the customer might have enjoyed the massage from a BASARA wrestler because she is a BASARA fan. All the women in the audience booed him. Amazon also didn’t like the statement so he knocked out both Ryu and Senga with Stretch Kicks. The judge declared that Senga was not guilty.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi stood outside the ring for the opening match and distracted Daichi Kazato with his yoga poses. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi took advantage and hit the Perfect Five on Kazato to win the match.

The first round matches of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ were determined in an odd fashion. Each wrestler threw a numbered ball into the audience. The fans that caught a ball each picked a different spot on the playoff bracket. Afterwards the wrestlers were told which numbers represented them and who they would paired up with. The opening round matches are FUMA Vs Daichi Kazato, Yusuke Kubo Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Manabu Hara Vs Takato Nakano, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Akiyori Takizawa, Isami Kodaka Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu Vs Minoru Fujita, Gouma Ryu Vs Fuminori Abe and Yasu Urano Vs SAGAT.

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Mike Bailey when Endo pinned Bailey with the Tetsuya In The Sky With Diamonds (15:07).
7. D-King Grand Prix – Final: Shuji Ishikawa defeated HARASHIMA with the Giant Slam (19:12).

After an intense month of round robin matches it was now time for the first ever D-King Grand Prix grand final! The two group winners HARASHIMA and Shuji Ishikawa faced off with a lot of important prizes on the line for the winner. HARASHIMA used short ranged Somatos to counter Ishikawa’s biggest moves but was too beaten down to fully capitalise on them. The tables turned when Ishikawa caught the Somato and countered it into the Fire Thunder Driver. HARASHIMA kicked out at one! Ishikawa quickly hit a Knee Lift but HARASHIMA kicked out at two. Ishikawa then did the Splash Mountain but somehow HARASHIMA kicked out again. He tried to kick his way back into the fight but Ishikawa stopped him with a Trapped Headbutt followed by the Kamigoe and another Knee Lift. HARASHIMA was still kicking out but the Giant Slam put him away once and for all. Shuji Ishikawa wins the 2018 D-King Grand Prix!

Ishikawa’s prize is 2,000,000 yen in prize money (he is considering a bitcoin investment) and the guaranteed KO-D Openweight Title main event match at Sumo Hall on 25th March. Konosuke Takeshita entered the ring and stood across from his next challenger. Ishikawa told him that when he had the belt, it shined more. He has to give it more light again. Takeshita praised Ishikawa for his contributions to pro wrestling in Japan. He is one of the best. But Takeshita will have held the belt for over a year when their match takes place. He told Ishikawa they will destroy the ring together in Sumo Hall!

When Takeshita left, Daisuke Sasaki congratulated Ishikawa for crushing their hated enemy HARASHIMA. He was then distracted by Tetsuya Endo’s new hairstyle. Endo tried to change the subject by encouraging Ishikawa to sing a victory song. Ishikawa sang “Love” by Hoshino Genki while Mad Paulie tried to dance along to the music. When the song was over Ishikawa told everyone on 25th March he wants to win the KO-D Title then sing with Mad Paulie at Sumo Hall!

DAMNATION attacked ALL OUT with chairs after beating them in the semi-main event. Shunma Katsumata ran in to rescue the group but was outnumbered. DAMNATION gave him a Super Power Bomb, leaving the entire ALL OUT unit in pieces.

Today for the last time NωA went out to perform their greatest hits. They begun with “ωe are the HERO!!” then moved on to “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU”. However their second song was interrupted by T2Hide. Sanshiro Takagi believed the performance was being treated by the audience as a toilet break. Takagi also complained the concert was going so long that there was no time for Kazuki Hirata to do his entrance. The match devolved into a musical duel between NωA and “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU” against T2Hide and “Tokyo GO!” until Katsumata gave Hirata the Lightning Spiral to win the match. After the match each NωA member spoke of their future plans and goals. MAO wants to team more with Mike Bailey and cause a full rampage in DDT together. Makoto Oishi wants to achieve the DDT Grand Slam by winning every championship in the company. In the meantime he will go back to his old tag team with Danshoku Dino. Katsumata said there is another unit he would like to join. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito then appeared and stood next to Katsumata. He is joining ALL OUT!

A match featuring Dino, Joey Ryan and Jiro Kuroshio was as perverted as expected. Kuroshio had the back of his tights pulled down but he still did a bare-assed Quebrada out of the ring. Yukinori Matsui was accidentally knocked out by Dino’s Lip Lock. Ryan tried to put a lollipop into Keisuke Ishii’s mouth but he pushed it away into Dino’s backside. The lollipop was then stuffed into Kuroshio’s mouth. Dino got his hands on Kuroshio. Ryan took out the lollipop and tried to put it in Ishii’s mouth again. Ishii again pushed it away back into Dino’s backside and then into Matsui’s mouth. Matsui woke up, disqualified everyone and fainted again. When everything calmed down, Ryan called for Producer Dino’s attention. He called Dino the No. 1 crazy wrestler in DDT but Ryan is the No. 1 Crazy Gaijin. To prove it Ryan wants to face Colt Cabana at “JUDGEMENT 2018”! Dino was busy with Kuroshio and said okay. Super Sasadango Machine then asked Dino if he could defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Kuroshio on the same show. Kuroshio accepted the challenge. However Dino wants Sasadango to defend the title at least two times a week until the match takes place otherwise the title will not be on the line. The reason for this is Dino wants the Ironman Title to get more attention and no one in DDT is better at marketing than Sasadango.

That wasn’t the end for Dino on this show as he had the important decision to make in regards to his 6-Man Tag match against The Great Muta at “JUDGEMENT 2018” in March. Ken Ohka is his obvious first pick. Ishii then asked to be Dino’s pick. He argued that their record as a tag team stands at 25 wins and 10 losses. Good enough! Suddenly they were ambushed by Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo! The DAMNATION wrestlers spat liquid into Dino & Ishii’s eyes and it was sold like the Poison Mist. Sasaki told them it was only cola. He then revealed he visited The Great Muta earlier and Muta agreed to become DAMNATION’s pet! Dino’s team will now have to fight Muta, Sasaki & Endo at Sumo Hall!

KUDO continues to be in good form as he prepares for his DDT Extreme Title match on 3rd February. The champion Yuko Miyamoto hasn’t chosen a stipulation yet but KUDO wants it to be a Hardcore Match of some kind. Masahiro Takanashi said the purple belt will look good on him along with the white KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title belts they already have. Takanashi also called out for any potential challengers to step forward whether they are from DDT, BASARA or even Tokyo Joshi Pro.

Today’s PowerPoint presentation by Super Sasadango Machine was titled “How to Finalize Declaration of Final Procedure and Taxation” with supervision provided by the match sponsor Professor Takahashi. Sasadango stressed that it is better for people to file a final tax return when they want a lot of refund money. To increase their refund, it is better to increase their expenses. So Sasadango bought some new items for the wrestlers in this match to use as weapons. Sasadango bought himself a 256GB iPhone X, Saki Akai a Goyard tote bag, Antonio Honda a vintage stuffed tiger doll and Tanomusaku Toba a bunch of Tenga Egg sex toys. Sasadango took selfies with Honda and the tiger. Akai attacked Toba with the tote bag. Sasadango and Honda then opened the contents of Toba’s egg and played with them until Honda called over to Professor Takahashi. Honda accused Takahashi of tax evasion and ordered Inoue Mic to arrest him! Mic pulled out handcuffs and followed Honda’s orders. Honda then accused Sasadango of tax evasion, Toba of taking drugs and Akai of stealing his heart. Toba said he may have taken drugs but he isn’t sure. Sasadango, Akai and Toba then joined forces to beat Toba with Sasadango getting the pin. The lesson of this match? For correct knowledge of tax returns please visit the Takahashi Tax Accounting Office.

Kota Umeda is getting back into the swing of things since returning from injury. He got the pin in the opening match.

In the dark match Nobuhiro Shimatani tried to get the upper hand by attacking Naomi Yoshimura from behind but he was beaten with a Lariat. Shimatani’s bad luck doesn’t end there. He found out afterwards that on the 6th February YaroZ show he will face Kohei Sato in a Kickboxing Match! On the bright side at least Shihomi Yoshino will be the ring girl.

In other YaroZ news, the DDT staff realised during the announcement that the card was one match short from being completed. In an unexpected move, Yumehito Imanari and DT-YUTA from the DDT Video team stood up and volunteered to wrestle against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi at the show. DT-YUTA was a Union Pro wrestler many years ago.

Lady Beard, Reika Saiki, Keisuke Okuda and Yoshiko are all scheduled to appear at Sumo Hall. Also coming to DDT this March is “All Ego” Ethan Page! DDT promoted Page as the next big Canadian star to enter the company. In a video message Page said he is ready to take over DDT.
