1. Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya defeated Cody Hall & Antonio Honda when Oishi pinned Honda after Naya Choke Slammed Oishi onto Honda (12:15).
2. OPG Offer Match: Gota Ihashi, Great Mutiger & Yunosuke defeated Takuya Yamauchi, Tomoya Uehara & Scoville when Mutiger pinned Scoville with a Diving Elbow Drop (8:43).
3. Danshoku Dieno & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi submitted Hirata with a Jumping Cross Armbreaker (0:03).
3a. Rematch: Danshoku Dieno & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (10:57).
4. Mizuki Watase Marunage Match ~ Advent Of God!! Falls Count Anywhere In Kurashiki Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Shunma Katsumata & Hiroshi Yamato defeated Mizuki Watase, MAO & Asuka when Katsumata pinned Watase with a Moonsault Foot Stomp on the Barbed Wire Board (24:00).
5. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Akito submitted Shimatani with the Scorpion Lock (16:28).
6. Kurashiki Specialty Beauty Area Special 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when HARASHIMA pinned Paulie with the Somato (17:26).

Today’s ending was the first time in a long time that the entire DISASTER BOX unit were together in the same ring. Tetsuya Endo thought he got one over on HARASHIMA when he used a Standing Somato on his against the corner. But HARASHIMA got the last laugh by blocking a Springboard attack with a Dropkick and then pinning Mad Paulie with two versions of the Somato.

Yuki Iino was absent from the show but Akito was still inspired by his appearances on the No Side Game TV drama. ALL OUT supports No Side Game and will use that story as the theme for their upcoming KO-D Tag Team Title shot. Konosuke Takeshita hopes that everybody in ALL OUT will appear on the show if it ever gets a sequel.

The hotel the show took place in has a lot of cleaning up to do thanks to the chaos in Match #4. The two teams didn’t wait long to fight their way away from the ring. Shunma Katsumata brought out a stepladder to do a Diving Foot Stomp from. Asuka found rope outside the building and used it to choke Katsumata. Mizuki Watase put Sanshiro Takagi through a table after jumping from the lobby desk. MAO and Hiroshi Yamato went into the bathhouse and threw each other into the baths. Takagi built a chair castle but it was knocked down when Watase’s team drove a motorbike into it. Back in the ring Katsumata brought out a box of toy bricks as well as a barbed wire board! Asuka hit the Moonsault on Katsumata with a chair in hand. Watase placed the barbed wire board over two chairs and tried to put Katsumata through it with the Calf Branding. But Katsumata blocked the move and instead threw Watase into the board with a top rope Frankensteiner. He then placed the board remains on top of Watase and pinned him after a Moonsault Foot Stomp. Katsumata thanked Watase for coming up with such a crazy match but Watase rejected his handshake.

Yukio Naya has found a good way to win tag matches. Just Choke Slam your partner onto your opponent!

Chiba 2AW Square
117 Fans

1. Yukio Sakaguchi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga defeated Naomi Yoshimura & Mizuki Watase when Sakaguchi submitted Watase with an Arm Trapped Triangle Choke (11:45).
2. Cody Hall defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Thunder Buster (8:35).
3. Masahiro Takanashi & Hiroshi Yamato defeated Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya when Yamato pinned Oishi with a Northern Lights Bomb (11:08).

5. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno when Paulie pinned Ueno with the Paulie Buster (14:35).
6. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Uchibo, Tobo, Dai Boso! Chiba Specialty Special Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Puma King (c) when Akito pinned King with a Cradle (16:01).
*Akito becomes the 1,415th champion.
-. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Puma King defeated Akito (c) with a School Boy (7:41 pm).
*Puma King becomes the 1,416th champion.

It looked like ALL OUT was going to finish the show on a happy ending. Akito pinned Puma King in the main event, making him the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. Akito told everyone that ALL OUT was on track to win all of the championships in DDT. All that is left for them to get is the DDT Extreme Title and the KO-D Tag Team Titles. While he was talking to Konosuke Takeshita about putting together a potential DDT Triple Crown match between them, Keigo Nakamura snuck into the ring to try and pin Akito. It failed and Akito gave Nakamura a Michinoku Driver II. Daisuke Sasaki & Puma King then attacked ALL OUT and King pinned Akito with a School Boy to become the champion again. King told everyone that this was the last show of his tour and he is going back to Mexico with the Iron Man Title!

Tetsuya Endo held HARASHIMA in an Achilles Tendon Lock outside the ring while Match #5 reached its conclusion. He held it on for as long as he could after the match ended.

The Marunage match featured a lot of vest tearing, licking and “Yes!” chants. Pero Pero Master came out to a version of “Real American” with different lyrics. Poro Poro Master came out to “Voodoo Child”. M Samurai put Daniel Nobryan in a Wristlock then pulled off his beard for a quick submission victory. Nobryan technically submitted because “Yes!” is all he can say so Yukinori Matsui thought he verbally gave up. A rematch was agreed to but M Samurai didn’t feel like he was up to the task. He stopped wrestling midway through and declared he is now S Samurai! The difference is now used chair attacks and gave Low Blows to his opponents. Nobryan hit Samurai with the Running Knee and Pero Pero Master pinned him with a no handed Pedigree. Pero Pero Master and Poro Poro Master shook hands after the match.

Hiroshi Yamato promoted DDT’s show in Kimitsu City, Chiba on 1st December after he won his match.

Makoto Oishi spoke about his history with Chiba 2AW Square at the start of the show. He said he dyed this venue blue back when he wrestled for K-DOJO and it still looks like home to him.

7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Puma King defeated HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Endo submitted Ueno with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (17:12).

Tetsuya Endo criticised HARASHIMA for failing to protect his friends from losing again. Endo then said it won’t be HARASHIMA or Jiro Kuroshio who will be main eventing Sumo Hall in November. It will be Endo taking back the KO-D Openweight Title!

Nobuhiro Shimatani used the DAMNATION signboard as a weapon in his match but it came at a great cost. He broke the sign over Isami Kodaka’s face! Kodaka pinned Shimatani then had a staredown with Daisuke Sasaki.

Konosuke Takeshita asked for a singles match with Asuka at the 29th September show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita promised that if Asuka can beat him, she will become the next No. 1 Contender for the KO-D Title after Takeshita defends it in Sumo Hall.

Gorgeous Matsuno has been riding on a wave of momentum this week. He recently finished 2nd Place in the 50s Class for a Best Body Japan bodybuilding competition in Tohoku. His ultimate goal is to win the big Grand Prix competition happening in November. But before that happens he will focus on pro wrestling and he challenged Sanshiro Takagi for the O-40 Title.

A few injuries during the week alters tomorrow’s card. The light one is Sanshiro Takagi. He injured his right eye and is missing this show. He will be getting it further examined next week but hopes to be clear for Masahiro Takanashi’s show on the 15th. Gorgeous Matsuno took it upon himself to replace Takagi in Match #2.

The bad injury happened to Kazusada Higuchi during yesterday’s “UNIVERSE.1” show. He tore his right PCL and has no timetable for a return. He does not need surgery and will be aiming to recover as soon as possible. Ryota Nakatsu takes Higuchi’s place in Match #3.

DDT “CAMPSITE PRO WRESTLING 2019 ~THE PROMISED NATURE LAND~”, 08/09/2019
Yamanashi Natureland Om

1. Falls Count Anywhere 5 Way 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Antonio Honda Vs Konosuke Takeshita, MAO & Yuki Ueno Vs Shuichiro Katsumura, Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Isami Kodaka, FUMA & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa

Sadly this means Higuchi will be missing the campsite match as well. Yukio Sakaguchi replaces him here. Also SAGAT is sick with the flu so he is being substituted with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

BASARA “BASARA 105 ~THE 2nd FOX PRINCE~”, 14/09/2019

Takato Nakano approached Sento Minzoku asking for a UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. He gathered together Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano to be his partners.

Hopefully SAGAT will be well again in time for his Last Man Standing match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “KFC 2 DAYS ’19 ~TEMPLE OF THE SUN~”, 15/09/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. 3 Way Match: Nodoka Tenma Vs Himawari Unagi Vs Pom Harajuku
2. Yuki Aino & YUMI Vs Raku & Mahiro Kiryu
3. Rika Tatsumi Vs Suzume
4. Miyu Yamashita Vs Mirai Maiumi
5. Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa
6. Natsumi Maki, Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Yuna Manase, Maki Itoh & Mina Shirakawa
7. Sakisama Vs Yuki Kamifuku
8. Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) Vs Misao

With the new 2nd Gen belt over her shoulder, Shoko Nakajima is now even more motivated to defend the Princess Title. Her next challenger is the wrestler who has by far progressed the most among the roster this year, Misao. Ever since Misao shed her superhero persona and joined NEO Biishiki-gun she has gone from strength to strength.

I wonder if Sakisama holds a grudge with Yuki Kamifuku over her attempt to join NEO Biishiki-gun last year? Kamifuku joined the unit as an apprentice last May then quit after two weeks when she figured out it was a bad fit for her.

Miu Watanabe Vs Hikari Noa is a match to watch out for. The two members of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have developed so much in the ring this year and part of the reason why is they branched out to other tag teams outside of their unit (Momoiro Sparkling for Watanabe and Pandemic Boo-Boo for Noa). Gotta be honest here, I think Raku is in danger of never catching up to them.

DDT “DRAMATIC SAINT INN☆ONISAN 2019”, 16/09/2019
Okayama Saint Inn Kurashiki

1. OPG Offer Match: Gota Ihashi, Great Mutiger & Yunosuke Vs Takuya Yamauchi, Tomoya Uehara & Scoville
2. Tomomitsu Matsunaga Vs Hiroshi Yamato
3. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dieno & Yukio Sakaguchi
4. Cody Hall & Antonio Honda Vs Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya

6. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Akito
7. Kurashiki Specialty Beauty Area Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura

HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo continue their feud. The danger here is they could do so much damage to each other that there won’t be much left for Jiro Kuroshio to deal with at the end of the month.

No word yet on who will replace Higuchi in the Marunage match.

Gota Ihashi gets his Oretachi Pro Wrestling buddies into the opener.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “KFC 2 DAYS ’19 ~DESERT MOON~”, 16/09/2019

5. Yuka Sakazaki, Yuki Aino & Pom Harajuku Vs Miu Watanabe, Hikari Noa & Raku
6. Shoko Nakajima & Mizuki Vs Dalys & Nodoka Tenma
7. International Princess Title: Natsumi Maki (c) Vs Yuna Manase

Natsumi Maki and Yuna Manase kind of have a sisterly relationship going back to their early years in Actwres girl’Z (am I allowed to mention that place?). Manase pinned Maki in Maki’s first match since becoming the International Princess Champion so obviously Manase gets the first shot.

CMLL luchadora Dalys makes her Tokyo Joshi debut. The 10 year veteran from Panama is being thrown right into the top card mix.

7. Omuta Specialty! The Moon Came Out The Moon Came Out! Barisugo Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuto Aijima Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Yukio Sakaguchi

I guess Higuchi is missing the heavyweight 3 Way too.

5. O-40 Title – Recycling Death Match: Sanshiro Takagi (c) defeated Ken Ohka with the Himawari Bomb onto a plastic case (12:40).
*V1 for Sanshiro Takagi.
6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Ishikawa pinned Yoshimura with the Fire Thunder (17:08).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) defeated Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted Kuroshio with the Crossover Face Lock (17:22).
*V6 for DAMNATION.
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Shinya Aoki by TKO with the Walls Of Takeshita (16:45).
*V2 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Just like in their last singles match, Konosuke Takeshita decided to wrestle barefoot against Shinya Aoki. Takeshita went for the Walls Of Takeshita but Aoki positioned himself into a Triangle Choke. Takeshita powered out of the move by lifting up and slamming down Aoki. He then reapplied the Walls Of Takeshita and kept the pressure until Aoki went unresponsive. Yukinori Matsui stopped the match and declared Takeshita the winner.

Takeshita expressed his sincere gratitude to Aoki after the match. He was then told that the next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be at Sumo Hall on 3rd November. No challenger was decided yet so Takeshita had an idea. Since “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is bringing together all of the DDT brands, he wants to find out who the absolute best wrestler in DDT is. That means the KO-D Champion and the DDT Extreme Champion should face off in a double title match! Hisaya Imabayashi reminded him that the current Extreme Champion Jiro Kuroshio is defending the title against HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in a 3 Way Match on 29th September. They confirmed that the winner and champion coming out of that match will face Takeshita in Sumo Hall.

Sadly for Kuroshio he didn’t add the KO-D Tag Team Titles to his possessions. He and his “brother” Kazusada Higuchi were defeated by DAMNATION. Higuchi got rid of Soma Takao and left Ikemen to seal the deal. Kuroshio blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s La Mistica Cross Facelock and turned it into a Tombstone Piledriver. However Ikemen’s Moonsault ended badly when Sasaki caught him and applied the Crossover Face Lock for the submission win. Akito came out and challenged DAMNATION for the Tag Titles on 29th September. His partner is the “TV Star” Yuki Iino! He has been away from wrestling the last few months working on a TV drama called No Side Game.

Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are now called Nautilus. The team impressed Shuji Ishikawa, he called them amazing talents. He also likes tagging with Tetsuya Endo and suggested the idea of the two of them facing off against Sasaki & Takao sometime.

The Recycling Death Match featured plenty of items from DDT’s history. A lot of it was trash left around in storage but some of the items do have some history to them. There was the dojo’s vacuum cleaner from 2015, an office heater from 2016, plastic cases from this year, the bear traps from the 2018 Super Sasadango Machine Vs Jiro Kuroshio match, 200 empty beer cans that they never threw out after one of this year’s earlier Beer Garden shows, Mecha Mummy’s weapons from 2006 and finally a big electric signboard T that was part of a stage prop from DDT’s first ever Sumo Hall show back in 2009. The last one still works. Sanshiro Takagi threw Ken Ohka onto the T with the Spicolli Driver then pinned him with the Himawari Bomb through a plastic case. Takagi and Ohka agreed to repair the T and use it at next year’s Saitama Super Arena show.

The pairing of Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto acted exactly how we thought they would. They got their hands all over Akito & Shunma Katsumata until Yukinori Matsui called off the match.

MAO brought along the two glass globes he has earned so far from the Tenkaichi Jr. tournament in ZERO1. He and HARASHIMA defeated Jun Masaoka & Kouhei Kinoshita. HARASHIMA commiserated his opponents afterwards.

Yuni was able to pin Puma King with a Hurricanrana because all of the other wrestlers in the Battle Royal piled on top of them. Yuni was declared the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion but Kazuki Hirata quickly pinned him with the Egoist Driver to win the belt. Saki Akai won it next then Asuka pinned her with the ASUKA FANTASY to win both the title and the Battle Royal itself. Hirata got the belt back after the match with a School Boy then Puma King got the last title switch with the Puma Kingdom.

The debuting Cody Hall showed his strength by throwing around Yukio Sakaguchi, Lariating Yukio Naya and pinning Mizuki Watase with the Thunder Buster.

The summer has come to an end so DDT spent their final days of the season running one more Beer Garden show. The main event finish saw Nobuhiro Shimatani take the finishers from every member of the opposing team. The show ended with the DDT roster minus DAMNATION all having a toast inside the ring. HARASHIMA called on the fans to look forward to DDT’s next Korakuen Hall and Sumo Hall shows. Kazuki Hirata danced to “TOKYO GO!” until Ken Ohka hit him with the Fire Spear. Ohka told everyone that they have to continue fighting, even the wrestlers from BASARA and Ganbare☆Wrestling. It turns out NOAH is running Sumo Hall the day before “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” and Big Japan will be the day after. There is a wrestling world war going on and Ohka wants to win it!

Antonio Honda came prepared for his clash with Santino Marella and his dreaded Cobra but it had to be a last ditch plan. When Marella used the Cobra to strike Honda in his Gongitsune arm, Honda pulled out a recorder and played a snake charming song to make Marella lose control of the Cobra. Then Honda took out his secret weapon, a Gon The Fox hand puppet! The Fox bit the Cobra, leaving Honda in a weakened state. Honda went for the Shining Gongitsune but Marella caught him with the Cobra strike to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Honda told Marella that he wanted the Fox to eat the Cobra but it couldn’t because half of Marella’s heart is in Canada but the other half is in Japan! Marella told everyone that he learned Judo in Koshigaya, Saitama years ago. He is a retired pro wrestler but was happy to get the chance to unleash the Cobra in his second home.

Yukio Naya was the only person new to the spooky storytelling of the Shin Numabukuro Death Match. When he learned that a ghost story would be told if the match didn’t end in three minutes, he told everyone that he gets scared easily. Things were made even scarier when Su Yung entered the ring! The match was now a 5 Way and if it ended in three minutes then Yung would eat everyone! She attacked the trainee Keigo Nakamura and dragged him away from ringside. When she came back out she was carrying Nakamura’s detached arm! The three minutes ran out and everyone was terrified they were about to get eaten. Hisaya Imabayashi then revealed that this was the scary story! The fear of getting eaten by a zombie was exactly the kind of reaction he wanted to get this year. Danshoku Dieno asked if that meant no one would get eaten? Imabayashi said Yung could still eat somebody and he suddenly pointed at Dieno, making him faint. He then pointed at the others one by one, causing them all to faint. But when he pointed at Yung she didn’t react. Imabayashi woke everyone up and together they all pointed at Yung to defeat her. Imabayashi said the world is now protected and “Wild Thing” played over the sound system. But when he left the ring, zombie Nakamura appeared and ate him!

Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao came to the ring drinking beer. They said that due to demands from a “third party” their match against Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi is now a Drunk Match sponsored by Budweiser. A wrestler had to take a drink after a kick out or a rope break. Also everyone had to take a drink whenever music played. As the wrestlers got drunker, Sasaki and Takao got more and more into calling themselves Higuchi’s dad. Higuchi got drunk enough to consider it was possible and he ended up fighting Kuroshio instead. However he snapped out of it and used an Airplane Spin variation of the Doctor Bomb to pin Sasaki.

Toru Owashi asked for his tag match to be held under Lucha Rules. Puma King replied in Spanish and Yuki Ueno badly translated it. He said King called him “the nice guy in the white costume” and King called Owashi a “black pig”. Owashi later got mad at Tetsuya Endo and Yuki Ueno for doing a regular lock-up instead of lucha transitions. They began to trade Arm Drags until Yukinori Matsui got involved. Matsui did one and Endo punched him in the stomach afterwards. Owashi put Endo in the Paradise Lock then King put Owashi in the Paradise Lock. Ueno tried to do the move to King but didn’t know how to do it. King put Ueno in a Romero Special but Owashi crawled on top of King for a pin. Endo broke the pin, gave an Overhead Kick to Ueno and pinned him with La Magistral Cradle.

The Blindfold 3 Way match saw Kazuki Hirata and then Masahiro Takanashi both attack Keigo Nakamura outside the ring, knocking off his glasses in the process. Hirata picked up the glasses thinking they were his HIRATA GO glasses. He put them on but the music that played was “TOKIO” by Kenji Sawada. Mad Paulie found the HIRATA GO glasses and the usual “TOKYO GO” music played when he put them on. He struck Hirata while they danced and got the win with the Paulie Buster.

Gisele Shaw’s DDT debut was a successful one, teaming with Naomi Yoshimura & Saki Akai to defeat Akito, Shunma Katsumata & Asuka.
