5. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA (c) with the Perfect Five (13:53).

6. DDT Foods Strongest Store Decision Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Match: Isami Kodaka & Akito defeated KUDO & Gota Ihashi and Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi when Kodaka pinned Ihashi with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the south stage (11:58).

Today’s show was the last call for Tavern Wrestling before BASARA takes over the format for their own events in Shin-Kiba 1st RING later this year. The ring announcer Rikiya Shindo kicked off the show by asking if everybody was already drunk, then he held a toast for the final Tavern Wrestling show.

A wild 3 Way Tag Match fought under Falls Count Anywhere Rules main evented the show. Isami Kodaka took a page out of his recent team mate Keiji Muto’s playbook and hit a Shining Wizard to Gota Ihashi. Meanwhile KUDO laid out Makoto Oishi, Soma Takao and Akito on separate rows of the southern bleachers. Kodaka knocked KUDO off and stepped on each of the wrestlers as he climbed up to the top. From there he jumped over all of them to hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on Ihashi for the victory. Kodaka promised after the match that the BASARA shows under this format will be even more crazy.

The Union MAX Title now belongs to the Trans-Am group! FUMA’s title reign was cut down thanks to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. The challenger did well to block and avoid the Jawbreaker kick throughout the closing minutes. His Lariats were the difference maker and FUMA was too dazed by them to do anything. That made it easy for Ryuichi to pick him up and drop him down with the Perfect Five. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi declared that “The Champ Is Here!” as the crowd chanted “USA!” But Ryuichi Sekine then appeared to challenge the new champion. Ryuichi is strong but Nakatsu thinks he is stronger. He was only a trainee when Union Pro closed down but he strongly wants to win the title. Ryuichi called Nakatsu a young boy and accepted the challenge. Nakatsu picked the date and location, Korakuen Hall on 29th April!

Alliances were quickly formed and broken during the 5 Way Match. Wrestlers kept pairing up with each other to double team the opposition then a betrayal would happen so someone could pick a “new friend” to help them. In an awkward moment Joey Ryan ended up grabbing Sayaka Obihiro’s chest then commented on how flat she is. Obihiro froze with shock and was out of it for the rest of the match. Ryan later pinned Cherry while Yusuke Kubo tried to comfort Obihiro outside the ring.

Daichi Kazato is now the Best Stretchman V3. He wrestled in a loud orange and blue superhero bodysuit and used a lot of stretching submission moves on his opponents. With a triumphant debut, Stretchman is now looking forward to creating a stir in BASARA and protecting the world from evil.


The Aftermath Of Saitama Super Arena

March 22, 2017

One day after “JUDGEMENT 2017” all the staff and wrestlers woke up to news that DDT was given two brand new tour busses by the Grace Tourism Corporation. DDT hopes these new busses will help expand their tours nationwide but first Sanshiro Takagi wants to use one to go strawberry picking. One of the busses was immediately used to host a press conference to announce the cards for the rest of March and April.

Takagi gave an update on the announcement that DDT will run the Tokyo Dome. Kind of. The plan is to have a single Street Wrestling match take place inside the arena. No date or match has been decided yet but Takagi would like to have Minoru Suzuki be involved. He wants Suzuki because Suzuki was with him in the ring at Budokan Hall five years ago when Takagi first revealed his intentions of running the Dome. Takagi said the entire building will be open to them so the match can potentially take place on the pitcher’s mound, the bullpen or even the boiler room. However none of this has been cleared with Suzuki yet.

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles – New ωrestling Aidoru Vs New Wrestling America: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie, Mike Bailey & Joey Ryan

NωA are a little worried that they will be defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles so soon after winning them. Even more worrying are their opponents. Shigehiro Irie was inspired by his American excursions to bring together the best American wrestlers he can find. So far he has Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey. Ignore the fact that Bailey is Canadian. Irie calls his new group New Wrestling America and he wants this unit to be like 3 Count from WCW.

7. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – “DDT Is DDT” 20 Years Entertainment Culmination! The Best In The World Bad Guy Decisive Battle Round 2: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Joey Ryan

Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan reconciled their differences after their clusterfuck of a match in Saitama Super Arena. But their new friendship fell apart immediately thanks to them fighting over the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Ryan wanted to team with Dino so they could fight together against the Hardy Boyz, the Young Bucks, the Dudley Boyz and the Steiner Brothers. But Dino had to be selfish and not give Ryan the Iron Man Title. Ryan wants to win the title and defend it all over Orlando during WrestleMania weekend. Dino would rather keep the title… oh, and also get revenge for Ryota Yamazato getting his ass destroyed by firecrackers.

DDT “FIRST TIME ADVANCE! 2017”, 08/04/2017
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. You Will Kill Or Get Hurt! You Will Get Caught Or Killed! Special Single Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Danshoku Dino

Dino is juggling a lot lately. He also has a KO-D Tag Team Title shot to prepare for. Part of the preparations involved a match with one half of the champions Yukio Sakaguchi.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING”, 14/04/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

Daisuke Sasaki is inviting wrestlers from all over to apply for a shot at his newly won DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki wants the potential challengers to write him a postcard that clearly states their name, age, occupation, address and phone number along with reasons why they deserve the title shot. Sasaki also wants suggestions for what kind of match the title will be defended in. Postcards must arrive before 24th March and he will announce his opponent on the 25th at the Yokohama show.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2017”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

It’s surprising to see this match happen already but Konosuke Takeshita will face his friend turned enemy Tetsuya Endo in his first defence of the KO-D Openweight Title. Endo doesn’t really care about winning the title. He is more interested in making Takeshita’s life miserable and taking the title from him so soon is the perfect way to make him suffer.

The feud between Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan now has American politics involved! Dino held a press conference with “Donald Trump” who claimed to be a new owner of DDT. Trump was here to give an international PowerPoint presentation for Dino’s upcoming match with Ryan. Trump said the match will be a war between two geniuses. Because of this it was difficult to determine what match the two wrestlers should have. Trump gave a SWOT analysis on Dino to solve this problem. According to the analysis, Dino’s strength is being the strongest gay wrestler in the world but his weakness is his antics making his parents angry. His opportunity is to make gay marriage legal in Japan but his biggest threat is Japan’s ageing society.

Using this information Trump came up with several ideas for match stipulations like a Gay Tag Royal Rumble, a Mutual Parant Swapping Death Match and a 30 Year Iron Man Match. He also considered moving the match over to the town where Dino’s parents live. But as the conference went on Trump began focusing on the words “SWOT ANALYSIS” on the screen. He looked closer and closer until he singled out the word “ANAL”. That’s when he made his decision. It should be an Anal Explosion Death Match! This match is a World Wrestling War so it should be fought under the most dangerous stipulation! Trump denied being Super Sasadango Machine in disguise. Dino suggested that Sasadango evolved into Trump like a Pokémon. Dino then wondered why is this match now a war? Fighting Joey in an Anal Explosion Death Match isn’t going to solve anything. Trump ended the conference by saying he will never leave Japan.

Oh, and Pro Wrestling Tees is now sponsoring this match. A selection of DDT shirts are now available on the site.

Isami Kodaka & Akito are representing the Drop Kick Bar, KUDO & Gota Ihashi are representing Ebisuko Tavern and Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi are representing the Swan Dive Bar.

So Daichi Kazato was being literal when he said he was going to turn into Best Stretchman because that’s his new gimmick, the third person to use it apparently. I have no idea who the first two were.

Hiroshi Kondo is from HEAT-UP. His nickname is “Gutsiness”.

The full card was revealed during “DDT FES 2016”. Among the new matches are a special TLC Match preparing the celebrations for DDT’s 20th anniversary next year. Takashi Sasaki comes back to DDT for this match. Danshoku Dino finds himself in a more extreme situation than normal against Jun Kasai. There are also the debut matches of new DNA rookie Naomi Yoshimura and 3rd Grade student Yuni.

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title has vanished from the public eye ever since comedian Ryota Yamasato accidentally won the title at the end of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016”. However DDT announced that if the champion and championship both reappear between now and this show it will be put on the line in the Battle Royal.

The dark match may stay the same even if Nobuhiro Shimatani “loses” the King Of Dark Title before the show takes place.
