New No People Shows In April

March 31, 2020

DDT “DDT UNIVERSE LIVE! APRIL FOOL 2020”, 04/04/2020
Chiba 2AW Square

1. Jordan Heatley Debut Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Jordan Heatley
2. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 5th Match: Syuri Vs Saki Akai
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman (c) Vs HARASHIMA, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Makoto Oishi

We’re back to empty arena shows for the time being. At least it’s happening in different venues. Chiba 2AW Square is available so Jordan Heatley’s debut match, Saki Akai Vs Syuri, the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match and the DDT Extreme Title match that were all meant to happen in the first weekend of April are now taking place there.

DDT “DDT UNIVERSE LIVE! MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Shinjuku FACE

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

The 12th April Korakuen Hall show was cancelled so the big matches booked for that show are now happening in Shinjuku FACE on the same day. So the KO-D Openweight Title and KO-D Tag Team Titles are still getting defended. Also Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi for the Saitama Super Arena Sword. There may be some other Right To Challenge Gauntlet shenanigans going on.

BASARA “BASARA 129 ~BANQUET~”, 21/04/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Gouma Ryu & Ryuji Ito
2. Union MAX Title: Fuminori Abe (c) Vs Isami Kodaka

Fuminori Abe gets the toughest test possible for his first Union MAX Title defence. Isami Kodaka pinned him in a tag match on the last show so that makes him the No. 1 Contender.


MUSCLE “MUSCLE 2” Results

March 26, 2020

MUSCLE “MUSCLE 2”, 26/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
216 Fans

1. Team L Vs Team S ~Yuki The Rock’s Systema Special Training~: Konosuke Takeshita, Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Naya & Yuki The Rock defeated Shunma Katsumata, Yumehito Imanari, Shota & Choun-Shiryu when Rock pinned Shota with the Stone Cold Stunner (11:12).
2. Hell In A Blue Sheet 2 ~Who Is In The Blue Sheet Rumble?~: X defeated Yuki Ueno, Akito, Mizuki Watase and Kazuki Hirata (12:14).
2a. Yuki Ueno eliminated Akito after the Heat Wave from Shunma Katsumata (3:51).
2b. Yuki Ueno eliminated Mizuki Watase with a Cobra Twist (7:02).
2c. Yuki Ueno eliminated Kazuki Hirata after the Rocket Punch from X (9:22).
2d. X eliminated Yuki Ueno with the Takatonic (12:14)
3. No People, No Webcast, No Tweet Loser Leaves Shin-Kiba: Big Prince Naya defeated Dream Boy Imanari after the Swivel Torture Rack from Tetsuya Endo (12:30).
3a. Rematch: Dream Boy Imanari defeated Big Prince Naya with the Chubby Knee Kick (4:44).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spring Is Blooming But Everything Will Probably Get Cancelled Anyway

March 23, 2020

Who knows how much of this will stick in the next few days. I’m writing this while hearing the Olympics are likely to get postponed until next year. If that’s going down then no way does the pro wrestling schedule in Japan for the rest of the year remain unscathed.

BASARA “BASARA 125 ~BANQUET~”, 24/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tetsuo Usui Vs Akiyori Takizawa
2. Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Gouma Ryu Vs Yusuke Kubo, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT
3. FUMA & Antonio Honda Vs Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino
4. Tsutomu Oosugi, Banana Senga & Daichi Kazato Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Takato Nakano & Leo Isaka
5. IRON FIST Next Challengers Decision Battle: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Naoki Tanizaki
6. Union MAX Title: Masahiro Takanashi (c) Vs Fuminori Abe

Spring is beginning to bloom which means BASARA’s schedule is ramping up. If nothing gets cancelled then there will be 3 or 4 BASARA shows a month happening up to July.

BASARA “BASARA 126 ~OSAKA CAMP SPRING TAISHO~”, 28/03/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Takato Nakano Vs Jun Masaoka

3. Losers Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match Vs Fuminori Abe & Tetsuo Usui
4. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
5. Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita
6. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Winners Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match

The No. 1 Contenders for the IRON FIST Tag Titles won’t have to wait long for the title match.

Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita looks like a de facto No. 1 Contender’s match for the Union MAX Title. Don’t know why else two Sento Minzoku wrestlers would face off against each other. Then again I’ve been struggling to follow BASARA ever since the split so I have to be missing the context for it.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 28/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Haruna Neko Vs Mirai Maiumi
2. Yuna Manase Vs Sena Shiori

6. Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger Decision 4 Way Match: Miyu Yamashita Vs Mizuki Vs Hyper Misao Vs Yuki Aino
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Maki Itoh & Raku

The Tampa show next month being cancelled means Yuka Sakazaki Vs Su Yung can no longer go ahead. That means there is currently no No. 1 Contender for the Princess Of Princess Title. To keep Sakazaki from feeling lonely on top for much longer, a 4 Way Match will be held this week to determine her next challenger. The options are the previous champ Miyu Yamashita, Sakazaki’s regular tag partner Mizuki, superhero trickster Hyper Misao and breaking out of the pack Yuki Aino.

Saitama Medical Corporation Anzukai Kyou Clinic

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Gorgeous Matsuno Vs Shinya Aoki, Makoto Oishi & Gabai Ji-chan

Probably crossing the line at this point but let’s keep going and see what happens. DDT is doing a Falls Count Anywhere Match inside a medical clinic. Gorgeous Matsuno and Gabai Ji-chan will be there too for added refuge in audacity. The match will broadcast live on DDT’s Youtube channel.

Yukio Sakaguchi has stepped up to challenge Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. It’s only been around three months since Eruption was formed and they are already making their move to take over DDT! Tanaka is bringing in Takuya Sugawara to even the numbers a little.

Konosuke Takeshita, Chris Brookes and Yuki Ueno were going to be in Tampa along with the Tokyo Joshi Pro crew but that’s not happening now. The three of them will instead wrestle each other back in Japan. Show them what America will miss lads.

The 5th Match in the Okibariyasu series is going to be kick heavy. Saki Akai faces the freelancer Syuri.

1. Special Single Match ~Beauty And Hentai~: Asuka Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Hataage 6th Anniversary Match ~New And Old Ganpro Vs Tomodachi-gun~: Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Minoru Fujita & Hagane Shinno

Who has the more beautiful Moonsault, Asuka or Shinichiro Tominaga? Who has the more perverted Moonsault? Does that even make sense? Either way, the answer for that one is Tominaga. I still haven’t gotten over the time he compared himself to XVideos in a promo.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey

With Sakaguchi going after the KO-D Title, Kazusada Higuchi has made it his mission to win the Saitama Super Arena Sword from Tetsuya Endo. If Sakaguchi and Higuchi both get their way then “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” will have an all Eruption main event!

2. Fukuoka Specialty! DDT Sauna Club No. 1 Tag Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs MAO & Shunma Katsumata
3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Antonio Honda

It took a few tries and asking the right person but Antonio Honda is getting his DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. Maybe tranquility is the right path for him and Daisuke Sasaki… Pfft! Yeah right, what wrestler ever made it big thanks to tranquility?

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X
2. Special Tag Match ~ HarashiMarufuji Vs CimaSoma!: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji Vs CIMA & Soma Takao
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Holder Of The Saitama Super Arena Sword

So right now the SSA main event is Tanaka Vs Endo. But there are still title matches to come and Right To Challenge Gauntlets still in play that can completely change the course of the KO-D Title scene over the next two months. Also the Coronavirus cancelling everything but let’s not think about that.


DDT “DRAMATIC HYAKUMANGOKU! 2020” Results

March 22, 2020

DDT “DRAMATIC HYAKUMANGOKU! 2020”, 22/03/2020

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) when Endo pinned Katsumata with the Shooting Star Press (19:28).
*ALL OUT fails in V4. #DAMNHEARTS becomes the 40th KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

The Business Alliance between DAMNATION and #STRONGHEARTS are going from strength to strength. Now they have title belts to share between them because Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman are the new KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions! The title change happened when Endo wiped out Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino with a Sasuke Special. In the ring T-Hawk & Lindaman gave Shunma Katsumata a Double Impact Codebreaker. Endo then came back to pin Katsumata with the Shooting Star Press. After the match Endo revealed the official name of the Business Alliance. They figured out how to mash the two unit names together and they are now called #DAMNHEARTS! Their first defence is against DISASTER BOX on 4th April.

The next goal for #DAMNHEARTS is for CIMA & Soma Takao to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles. That way all of the full time members will be a champion, except for Mad Paulie but he doesn’t seem to mind (even though he lost his Right To Challenge Gauntlet to MAO earlier in the show). CimaSoma are making progress on earning their tag title shot. The two Mad Splash combo is continuing to win them matches.

Toru Owashi brought Ken Ohka’s father to ringside so they could cheer Ohka on. Owashi got so into it he forgot he was part of the match and Ohka couldn’t tag him in. He got back in, gave Mike Bailey & Mizuki Watase a Double Choke Slam and set Ohka up to hit the match winning Fire Spear. Owashi told the crowd that today was the first time he and Ohka teamed together since February 2013. Ohka said he was upset because next week’s Bakuha Koshien show was postponed. But once he got back in the ring this weekend to wrestle again he remembered how fun pro wrestling can be.

Yukio Sakaguchi and the rest of Eruption have had a busy weekend wrestling for both DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Sakaguchi said it is giving him a good feel for challenging Masato Tanaka over the KO-D Openweight Title soon. Higuchi got the word out that he is chasing after the Saitama Super Arena Sword because he wants to, not because Sakaguchi told him to.

By being on the winning side today, Antonio Honda thinks he has earned a DDT UNIVERSAL Title shot. He asked Daisuke Sasaki again for a match. He got Sasaki to meditate so he could decide on a clear mind. Sasaki meditated then turned down the challenge again. Honda had to go find Hisaya Imabayashi after the show and use meditation on him to get the title shot. Sasaki Vs Honda for the UNIVERSAL Title will now take place on 19th April.

Kazuki Hirata appeared on the balcony to dance during his entrance. He brought Akito up to the balcony and knocked him out with the Tegatana Chop. Hirata then put on the Hirata GO! glasses and danced in the balcony while Akito escaped back down to the ring. Hirata was still dancing when he got counted out.


DDT “NASUKOGEN NATURE SCHOOL PRO WRESTLING AGAIN!” Results

DDT “NASUKOGEN NATURE SCHOOL PRO WRESTLING AGAIN!”, 21/03/2020
Tochigi Nasumachi Outdoor Training Center
30 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino and MAO & Keigo Nakamura when HARASHIMA pinned Nakamura with the Somato (82:16).

43 years ago the Tochigi Nasumachi Outdoor Training Center was opened. Sadly the place will be closed down on 31st March so DDT wanted to say goodbye the only way it could. By hosting a Falls Count Anywhere Match there. 30 visitors came to watch the match including a family who looked familiar… They claimed they had visited the site for a camping vacation, do not know much about pro wrestling but were interested in watching the match.

The teams made their entrances with Hisaya Imabayashi acting as the referee. MAO & Keigo Nakamura came out dressed like rural yankees. Shunma Katsumata walked out on his own and said his tag partner Yuki Iino was sleeping in because he drank too much last night.

The match began and HARASHIMA grabbed a child to attack Nakamura with. MAO climbed a fence and hit a Missile Dropkick to Tetsuya Endo. Katsumata found a hose and began spraying water at his opponents but the water spout was too weak to do much other than annoy.

HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura armed themselves with logs while Nakamura found a tent. Inside was Iino sleeping soundly. Nakamura tried to steal his bottle of tea but Iino woke up, dragged him into the tent and attacked him.

Iino burst out of the tent in his wrestling gear with Nakamura bend down behind him with his head between Iino’s legs. Everyone described them like a centaur as they charged into the other wrestlers with shoulder blocks.

Elsewhere Endo and Katsumata rolled down a hill from a struggled Power Bomb. Soma Takao grabbed one of the video cameras and filmed the match for a while.

Yoshimura found an open space to have sumo matches with Hideki Okatani. He then forced Nakamura and Okatani to fight each other.

Iino dragged the match over to a nearby cottage. He gathered everyone together for Katsumata to dive onto from the top of the stairway. The wrestlers then began giving each other Brainbusters. The one Katsumata gave to HARASHIMA ended up with both of them rolling down a hill into a river.

Everyone then began attacking each other with branches in the river stream. HARASHIMA put Nakamura in a Crab Hold and pressed Nakamura’s face into the water. Yoshimura and Iino hit each other with Lariats on the rocky shore until they both fell into the water. Endo then gave MAO the Tetsuya In The Sky into the water.

As the wrestlers walked down the river they approached a cooking area. They took a break from fighting to have a race over who could light up a campfire first. Katsumata was the only one to spark a fire.

Meanwhile Yoshimura and Iino went off to saw a log while HARASHIMA and Takao found a tree climbing set up. Both of them put on the equipment and climbed the tree. Takao then put HARASHIMA in a Figure 4 Leglock while they were in mid-air.

The big campfire in the centre of the area was then lit. Iino led everyone in a group haka dance.

Endo & Takao ignored it and went to bathe inside some drum cans filled with water. Endo took off his tights inside the drum so Katsumata stole them. HARASHIMA & Yoshimura dunked Nakamura into one of the cans then kicked it over.

Nakamura fled to the river while the other wrestlers chased after him with fireworks. MAO helped him by setting up a stepladder for Nakamura to dive onto his opponents.

Unfortunately for Nakamura, Yoshimura caught him and hit the Fire Thunder onto the ground. HARASHIMA then hit the Somato and got the three count. The match lasted just over 1 hour and 20 minutes.

After the match, HARASHIMA gave a goodbye speech for the campsite. Nakamura went to go hide in one of the drum cans so he could finally have some peace and quiet.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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