7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino when Sasaki pinned Iino with a Diving Elbow Drop (19:45).

Well it was nice while it lasted but Daisuke Sasaki is fighting clean no more. Sasaki kept up the good behaviour at first by shaking everyone’s hands and even calling out Tetsuya Endo for fighting dirty against Yuki Iino. But Sasaki eventually showed his true self when Yukinori Matsui got knocked out. With the referee gone, Sasaki said he couldn’t hold it in any longer and he kicked Konosuke Takeshita below the belt. He then threw a chair at Takeshita when they were outside the ring. Takeshita got revenge back inside when he took Sasaki’s chair and smashed it over Sasaki’s head. Takeshita then tried to squash Sasaki by Power Bombing Iino onto him but Sasaki rolled out of the way. Takeshita then tried to give Sasaki a German Suplex but Sasaki grabbed onto Matsui to block the move and do the Now Or Never Instead. With Takeshita out of the picture, Endo gave Iino the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb and Sasaki pinned him with a Diving Elbow.

Sasaki mocked Takeshita after the match by calling him stupid for ever believing that Sasaki was a good guy now. Takeshita admitted he keeps falling for Sasaki’s tricks but he really thought Sasaki meant it this time because there was a glint in his eyes that was never there before. Even Endo said he was also falling for it. Sasaki told everyone he will protect the KO-D Openweight Title from being taken by idiots like Takeshita. He ended the show with the DAMNATION motto, adding “You must never trust us” at the end of his mantra.

Masahiro Takanashi doesn’t see what is so threatening about MAO. He beat him cleanly in a singles match today. Yukio Sakaguchi couldn’t do that but Takanashi showed there is nothing to fear. For MAO the defeat brought back bad memories of NωA and the times when Shuten-dōji would beat them over and over. MAO needs to beat Shuten-dōji at Sumo Hall so he can move on from that period of his life.

After Match #5, HARASHIMA got on the microphone to talk about how he still doesn’t know what the stipulation is for his DDT Extreme Title match at Sumo Hall in two weeks time. Luckily for him, the champion Shinya Aoki was in the building and he came down to the ring. Aoki already said the stipulation. They will be fighting for “our pride”. Hisaya Imabayashi stepped in and asked for clarification but HARASHIMA understood Aoki’s point. Aoki and HARASHIMA will fight with their pride on the line.

Something has been bothering Soma Takao lately and Sanshiro Takagi was determined to find out what. He brought out the Dream Go but once again it fell apart as soon as it was used. The match turned violent with both Takagi and Takao smashing the plastic boxes over each other until Daisuke Kiso told them to stop. Takao then made a pile of chairs in the ring and gave Kiso a Michinoku Driver onto them! He then gave Takagi a the Scwhein but the bell rang and Takao was disqualified for attacking the referee. Takao told Takagi that he is angry at him, angry at Ryuji Ito, angry at Chigusa Nagayo and angry at, well, everything! Takagi told Takao to bring that anger with him to Sumo Hall. In his backstage interview, Takagi explained he has twenty years worth of reasons to be angry. New Japan, All Japan, NOAH, WWE and AEW have made him angry. He’s been angry at the wrestling magazines for the times they only gave DDT half a monochrome page worth of coverage in their issues. When he goes to other shows and gets stuck in a packed lobby that makes him angry. What reason does Takao have to be angry at in comparison?

Yesterday Toru Owashi made his triumphant return to Dragon Gate for the first time in 14 years! Today he marked the occasion by imitating Masato Yoshino’s high speed rope running at the start of Match #3. The match also featured a lot of kiss teasing between the wrestlers. Owashi and Honda first teased it when they were fighting over Gongitsune. Yuki Ueno and Kazusada Higuchi then teased it but their moment was interrupted when Owashi pinned Honda.

Asuka had nothing in her schedule today so she came to the building and added herself into the 3 Way Match. Kazuki Hirata dared Asuka and Saki Akai to give Mad Paulie a Double Suplex and they succeeded. The three of them danced until Asuka and Akai attacked Hirata. Asuka turned on Akai and hit her with a High Kick. Asuka then pinned Hirata with a Choke Slam and the Moonsault.

The Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlets will be up for grabs on the 23rd February Shinjuku FACE show. A new rule has been added this year where the Gauntlets can only be cashed in for an immediate title match. The holder can no longer declare their intention to cash in on a certain date in advance.

6. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – Final Match: Shuji Ishikawa defeated Kota Umeda with the Splash Mountain (13:02).
7. Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & HARASHIMA defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shinya Aoki when Sasaki submitted Takeshita with the Crossover Facelock (22:43).

In a preview for next month’s Sumo Hall show, the two big title matches were mashed together for a special wild card tag match. Daisuke Sasaki had to team up with one of his rivals HARASHIMA to take on their competition Konosuke Takeshita & Shinya Aoki. Tensions between the two sides went out of control after a flash Hurricanrana bumped into Yukinori Matsui and knocked him out. Sasaki brought out a chair and chaos happened when a “missed” swing hit his partner with it! Takeshita grabbed the chair but he too missed his target and hit Aoki by accident. Sasaki finally found his mark with a chairshot to Takeshita. However a German Suplex only got him a one count. Victory looked to have slipped away for Sasaki when Takeshita got his hands on him but HARASHIMA suddenly saved the day with the Somato. Sasaki quickly reacted by using La Mistica to put Takeshita in position for the Crossover Facelock. Takeshita was at his limit and had to give up.

HARASHIMA wasted no time after the match asking Aoki what the stipulation will be for their DDT Extreme Title bout. Aoki said their prides will be on the line so it will be a match where both champion and challenger are determined to do their best. They both left the ring so Sasaki and Takeshita could take over. Sasaki doesn’t have pride so the KO-D Openweight Title match won’t be about that. Instead he showed a video of Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie having a meal at the restaurant owned by Takeshita’s parents! They left without paying so Konosuke’s mother Keiko Takeshita chased after them yelling into the camera. A slightly embarrassed Takeshita swore revenge on Sasaki for bringing his family into this.

Kota Umeda’s seven match trial series comes to an end with no victories and a defeat to Shuji Ishikawa. Umeda threw many kicks but he was stopped in his tracks with a Running Knee Lift and the Splash Mountain. Ishikawa feels honored to be the final opponent for Umeda’s trial. He thinks Umeda can fill a hole DDT has been missing for a while because there are not many who fight like him. Although Umeda lost every match, he believes he gained something from every one so the trial was worth it. He agrees with Ishikawa that his style is rare in DDT so he wants to continue it.

DDT is a weird place but even with that knowledge CIMA wasn’t prepared for the antics MAO and Masahiro Takanashi had in store. Takanashi stole the win when CIMA went for the Meteora but MAO moved out of the way. MAO hit CIMA with the Screw High Kick but Takanashi then snuck in and pinned MAO with the Laphroaig. He told CIMA that this kind of wrestling is different than what they learned in the Dragon System. They argued about their past until turning their attentions to MAO. CIMA said the 3 Way Match for the KO-D Tag Team Titles will be fought in #STRONGHEARTS favour this time. He also boasted that despite being outsiders, #STRONGHEARTS are popular with the DDT fans. When he left the ring Takanashi told everyone a story about how bad CIMA’s cooking was back when they were in the Toryumon dojo with the Brahman Brothers.

Chigusa Nagayo was in the audience to watch the 8-Person Tag featuring Sanshiro Takagi fighting DAMNATION and Takumi Iroha. When things went wrong for Takagi’s team he yelled out to staff to summon his secret weapon, the Dream Go! Staff went to carry the plastic case mecha only to drop it down the stairs of Korakuen Hall’s lobby. Takagi used the remains as best he could but in the end Soma Takao won the match for DAMNATION.

After the match Takagi asked Takao if he is satisfied being in DAMNATION. What position is he in the group? Number one? Two? Three? Four? When they were part of an anti-establishment unit years ago Takao aimed to reach a much higher level back then than he does now. Takagi doesn’t want to wait until Sumo Hall to fight him. He wants a singles match on 6th February so Takao can finally wake up! Takao said he always hated Takagi. The people he is with in DAMNATION are his friends. He’s going to defeat Takagi on his way to the top. Takao then looked over at Nagayo in the audience and provoked her into standing up. Takagi went over to Nagayo and raised her hands. Takao took back what he said. He’s not going to just beat Takagi to reach the top. He’s going to beat Takagi and Nagayo to reach the top!

El Lindaman made a grave mistake. He spat at Yukio Sakaguchi. You don’t do that without suffering the consequences! Sakaguchi responded with a Rock Punch, a High Kick and the God’s Right Knee to win. Sakaguchi is confident that he and Takanashi can win the KO-D Tag Titles at Sumo Hall. Lindaman said it’s been a long time since he was kicked like this.

Throughout the week Chinsuke Nakamura has been spending his day to day life defending the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against a bunch of different parody and comedy characters. Being on guard 24/7 must have taken his toll because he was eliminated four seconds into the Battle Royal. Toru Owashi kicked him and everyone piled on top for the pin. Kikutaro was on top of Chinsuke so he was declared the new champion. Kikutaro was chased away from ringside. When everyone returned, Yukinori Matsui was wearing Kikutaro’s mask and holding the title belt. Everyone attacked him until they realised it wasn’t the real deal. Kikutaro used the distraction to attack Keisuke Okuda. He was about to set up the Shining Wizard when Kazuki Hirata gave him a School Boy to win the title. With six wrestlers left they split off into two sides of three. The trio of Hirata, Okuda and Asuka all Dropkicked Owashi, Kazusada Higuchi and Yuki Iino out of the ring to eliminate them. Hirata and Asuka then rolled up Okuda to pin him. With the match down to two, Hirata and Asuka put on Hirata Go! glasses and danced. That ended when Asuka gave Hirata a Choke Bomb and pinned him with the Moonsault to become the new champion! Asuka called it a perfect victory.

The debuting Space Monkey is already getting along with ALL OUT. He was given a banana by Akito before the match started. Jason Kincaid demanded the jokes to stop so they can wrestle. Monkey threw the banana away and gave Kincaid a Monkey Flip. When Antonio Honda got in the ring he slipped on the banana peel and hurt his knee, setting up the latest Gongitsune gag. Honda targeted Monkey’s tail believing it to be his weak point. Monkey toughened up and hit a Lionsault to both members of Gon Gift. He then won the match by hitting Honda across the face with his tail. Akito praised Space Monkey and told him he’s already winning over the DDT fans.

Danshoku Dieno has come up with a final name for his mascot. He finally realised it needed to be family friendly so he is naming his creation Pokotan.

Riki Choshu makes his DDT debut on the 21st March Korakuen show.

Makoto Oishi, Antonio Honda, Colt Cabana, Joey Ryan, Jason Kincaid and Ethan Page are the latest names added to “DDT IS COMING TO AMERICA” in New York on 4th April.

It was already announced that DDT’s next show at Sumo Hall after “JUDGEMENT 2019” will be on 3rd November. The new news today is the show will be called “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019” and will feature big matches from DDT, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling.

Both Naomi Yoshimura and Shunma Katsumata made appearances at the start of the show to promote their return matches next month.

The Muscle show taking place the day before “JUDGEMENT 2019” in Sumo Hall will feature a retirement match. Pedro Takaishi will have his final match on the show. He is considered one of the four pillars of Muscle. That doesn’t really mean anything but hey, whatever sells tickets. They really need to sell tickets…


DDT “DDT STILL DOES NOT KNOW GUNMA 2019” Results

DDT “DDT STILL DOES NOT KNOW GUNMA 2019”, 19/01/2019

4. Masahiro Takanashi defeated Jason Kincaid with a School Boy (12:05).
5. HARASHIMA & Yuki Ueno defeated Keisuke Okuda & Makoto Oishi when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (12:52).
6. The Mountain Of Akagi Is Also Available This Evening! Maebashi Specialty Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Kota Umeda when Endo pinned Umeda with a Swandive Firebird Splash (18:58).

DAMNATION are confident about their Sumo Hall matches and sent some messages in their own personal way. Daisuke Sasaki threw a chair at Konosuke Takeshita while Takeshita was climbing the turnbuckles. This was after Takeshita put Sasaki into his own Cross Facelock. Tetsuya Endo did a move on Kota Umeda where he lifted him up in a Fireman’s Carry then dropped him into a Thrust Kick, Naomichi Marufuji style. After the match Sasaki said that he isn’t going to act careless against Takeshita during their matches. Endo says he doesn’t think Marufuji is the pro wrestling genius, Sasaki is! Also Soma Takao. Sasaki started poking fun at Endo by calling him stupid. Endo got annoyed and ended the promo with the DAMNATION catchphrase. He tried to add the phrase “I’m not stupid” to the motto but flubbed his line and accidentally said he is stupid.

The match between Masahiro Takanashi and Jason Kincaid had some shenanigans to it. Kincaid used mediatation to make most of Takanashi’s moves ineffective. To combat this, Takanashi pulled part of Kincaid’s costume over his head to block his sight. When Yukinori Matsui tried to help Kincaid with the outfit, Kincaid put him in a Cobra Twist thinking it was his opponent. Takanashi snuck behind Kincaid and used a School Boy to steal the win.

Kazuki Hirata approached Mizuki Watase after the opener and asked him if he was satisfied with beating Nobuhiro Shimatani. Hirata told him he should be going after the established veteran generation wrestlers instead. Hirata then called MAO down to the ring and asked him if he is happy with DDT the way it is now. MAO said it’s not good. Hirata convinced the two of them to join his side and set up the Maebashi New Generation Army to take over DDT! They attacked Danshoku Dieno at ringside until Toru Owashi and Tomomitsu Matsunaga ran out to rescue him. They all decided to change Match #2 into a 6-Man Tag with the New Generation against Owashi, Matsunaga & Shimatani. Hirata went for the Miracle One Shot Cradle but Shimatani reversed it to get the three count. Perhaps Hirata’s New Generation team idea doesn’t have any legs to it.

Dieno has announced that his mascot character has again gone through a number of name changes. Chin Godzilla was changed to Anal And Snow Queen. Then it was changed to Anus Of Wonderland. He asked for audience feedback to the names and did not get much applause for either. So he got rid of them and decided to call the mascot Cali Erection. The name is still temporary by the way.

7. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino when Endo pinned Iino with the Shooting Star Press (16:31).

The first of several ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION match ups on the road to Sumo Hall ended in victory for DAMNATION. At first Daisuke Sasaki was in trouble when he was in the ring with Konosuke Takeshita. Things changed thanks to Sasaki’s partners. Tetsuya Endo gave Takeshita the Tetsuya In The Sky onto Yuki Iino! Then Mad Paulie took out Akito with a Lariat. The end came with Endo hitting the Shooting Star Press onto Iino. Nobuhiro Shimatani made fun of ALL OUT afterwards because the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions just lost so easily! Takeshita told DAMNATION they can have a title shot whenever they wanted. When ALL OUT left the ring, Sasaki said they could have the title match now. Takeshita asked Iino if he could go for another match but Iino was in too much pain to take the request. Sasaki told ALL OUT to go home. This is just getting started. Sasaki says he will get everything he wants in 2019.

HARASHIMA called Jason Kincaid a peculiar and unique wrestler. He had fun fighting him today. He is now waiting for Shinya Aoki to choose the match stipulation for their DDT Extreme Title bout next month.

Masahiro Takanashi rolled Sammy Guevara up in the ring apron to win by countout. Guevara tried to chase him afterwards.

Yesterday Soma Takao kicked Yuki Ueno below the belt not once but twice. Ueno didn’t waste any time waiting to attack when Takao came out for their match today. They brawled around the ring and later Ueno saw Takao’s Low Blow coming so he could block it. Ueno tried to avoid the Gin And Tonic but a Thrust Kick left him stunned long enough for Takao to hit his finisher and win.

In the Battle Royal Yuni couldn’t be punched by Kikutaro and Antonio Honda because he was too short for them. Keisuke Okuda wasn’t so friendly and attacked Yuni with no problem until Kazusada Higuchi and the others eliminated him. When Toru Owashi was eliminated, Honda and Kikutaro lifted Yuni onto their shoulders to celebrate. All three of them ended up falling over the top rope and out of the ring. That left Higuchi with Maku Donaruto. The clown dry humped Higuchi and hit the Swanton Bomb. However Higuchi then hooked Donaruto into a Crucifix Pin to steal the three count. Donaruto decided to dry hump Higuchi again while Sanshiro Takagi entered the ring. Takagi asked Donaruto if he enjoyed wrestling in DDT this week. Donaruto called it fun. Well Takagi now wants to see him wrestle on a bigger stage so Maku Donrauto is booked for Sumo Hall in February!

DDT and Yukinori Matsui will put on a special show at Osaka Edion Arena #2 on 26th May. The show celebrates Matsui’s 25th anniversary in wrestling. Kikutaro snuck up on Matsui and sent him to sleep with a chop to the neck. Kikutaro took over the segment and told everyone it will be his 25th anniversary in May too. He promoted his own stuff before reviving Matsui so the show could start.

A packed monorail train of 24 fans got to take a trip with DDT across the Chiba line. The Battle Royal began with Sanshiro Takagi, Hiroshi Yamato and Konosuke Takeshita duking it out as the monorail left Chiba Station. With slams prohibited for the safety of the monorail and everybody onboard, the wrestlers had to think up of other ways to fight. Takeshita quickly came up with the idea to hang off of the train handles to Dropkick his opponents without having to land on the floor.

When the monorail made its first stop at Chiba Park Station a salaryman walked on board reading a newspaper. It was Ippanjin Munenori Sawa! Takeshita attacked Sawa and purposely ripped the sleeve on Sawa’s suit jacket. Sawa however used one of the train handles to trap Takeshita in a Wristlock.

Akito & Yuki Iino entered the match at Sakusabe Station. Iino put Yamato in an Argentine Backbreaker while Akito traded Anklelocks with Sawa.

Chaos broke out when another man in a suit started attacking the wrestlers and acting lewd. It was Danshoku Dieno! The wrestlers were put into a linked chain of Headscissors for Dieno to do the Danshoku Nightmare along the entire monorail.

With no eliminations yet the car got even more packed when DISASTER BOX got on board at Anagawa Station. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno got caught up in Dieno’s shenanigans. It still continued when Takeshita hit Dieno with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title belt. Dieno just fell into Iino and got his hands all over him even more.

ALL OUT were so focused on Dieno that they didn’t see DAMNATION coming on board at Dobotsukoen Station. Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani kicked every member of ALL OUT as well as Dieno out of the monorail and the doors closed on them, eliminating ALL OUT from the match!

Isami Kodaka was ready for a fight when the monorail reached Mitsuwadai Station. For a few moments we got the dream matchup of HARASHIMA Vs Kodaka inside a monorail. Meanwhile Ueno put Endo in a Cobra Twist.

Familiar music played at Tsuga Station for the entry of the one, the only, Chinsuke Nakamura! Kodaka hit Nakamura with a knee to the back of the head and pinned him for the quick elimination. YeahOh!

Gota Ihashi got on board at Sakuragi Station. The other wrestlers welcomed Ihashi by forming arches with their arms for Ihashi to walk through. The arches guided Ihashi to the door at the other end of the monorail. Kodaka and Endo then kicked him out before the door closed to eliminate him.

Chaos broke out again when everyone decided to gang up on Shimatani. Even Takao and Endo got involved even though Shimatani is on their side! Takagi and Sawa also clashed with each other during the melee.

The final entrant was Antonio Honda at Chishirodai Station. He immediately wanted to give up because he was standing out in the cold for so long. Yamato dropped his guard while listening to the story so Honda used Gongitsune to pinch him in the nipple.

The monorail was still at the Chishirodai Station so some of the wrestlers took the fight outside to the platform. Yamato, Owashi and Honda found a ladder then suddenly began singing a song from Galaxy Express 999. This lured DJ Nira out from the shadows to grab the ladder with the other three and join in with the song. Kodaka and Ueno jumped on top of the group and used the ladder to pin all of them at the same time for the three count.

Nearby Sawa hit Takao with the Shining Wizard and placed him on a table. Takagi climbed a ladder beside it and put Takao through the table with a Diving Body Press. That was enough for Takagi to eliminate him by pinfall.

The eliminations then came thick and fast on the platform. Endo did a Moonsault from the stairway railing onto Takagi and Sawa to pin both of them.

Kodaka then rolled up Endo with a School Boy to pin him with some extra help by HARASHIMA & Ueno.

Shimatani dashed from one end of the platform to the other yelling “I am Nobu!” Whatever he wanted to do didn’t happen because Ueno rolled him into a Cradle for the three count.

Kodaka went and found a tag team partner to face HARASHIMA & Ueno. It is the Chiba Monorail mascot Mono-chan! HARASHIMA was surprised to discover how easily Mono-chan overpowered him.

Kodaka tried to Brainbuster HARASHIMA down a flight of stairs but HARASHIMA reversed it! Kodaka tumbled down the steps while Ueno chased after him. When Kodaka reached the bottom it was an easy three count for Ueno.

So the match came down to HARASHIMA and Ueno as the final two. Ueno shook HARASHIMA’s hand but it was a trap to roll him into a pin. HARASHIMA got out of it and hit Ueno with a High Kick. He then hit the Somato to win the match!

The match was over but HARASHIMA was suddenly approached by an exhausted looking Takeshita. He ran the entire way from Dobotsukoen Station chasing after the monorail! Chinsuke Nakamura snuck up behind Takeshita and hit the Low Blow. Chinsuke then pinned Takeshita with a School Boy to become the new Iron Man Champion! Chinsuke ran off yelling “YeahOh!” HARASHIMA called today the best wrestling match on a type of transportation DDT has done yet.

DDT “ORETACHI, DDT! 2019”, 02/02/2019
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Yuki Ueno Vs Naomi Yoshimura

Naomi Yoshimura has been given the go ahead to come back to the ring. He spent three days in the hospital when he was diagnosed with a cervical sprain over new year’s. Yoshimura was a little worried to start getting active until he was assured everything was okay. He is able to train the same amount as he could before his injury. Daisuke Sasaki’s comments about Yoshimura that were made immediately after the injury happened still stick with him but he is going to start from the bottom of the ladder again, which is why his first match back is against Yuki Ueno. Yoshimura has never lost a match to Ueno and he was also his opponent for his first singles match. Yoshimura feels this is the perfect test to see if he has healed back to normal.

DDT “JUDGEMENT 2019 ~DDT 22ND ANNIVERSARY~”, 17/02/2019

7. KO-D Openweight Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Naomichi Marufuji has been wanting to wrestle in DDT for a while now but injuries have delayed such plans from being made. That was until this week when DDT revealed he will be at “JUDGEMENT 2019” for a match against Tetsuya Endo! Marufuji’s return from injury will first happen in NOAH on 1st February. After that he will shift his attention over to DDT and Endo. Marufuji thinks Endo has the potential to be one of the best wrestlers in Japan and he wants to experience that potential for himself. Endo respects Marufuji but thinks he is different from him. He doesn’t care about having a good match, he only wants to crush Marufuji when they meet in the ring! Endo also thinks Marufuji won’t be able to reach his best condition in time for the match. Not just physically but mentally too. Endo proved how little he cares about the importance of this match by eating his lunch during the press conference while sitting next to NOAH’s president Masayuki Uchida. Although in Endo’s defence it was 5:40pm and he had to eat his homemade meal exactly two hours before his next protein drink.
