127 Fans

1. Makoto Oishi & Akito defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Akito submitted Hirata with a Senshuraku Clutch (8:07).
2. Goro Tsurumi’s Genes Vs Mysterious Faction!: Sanshiro Takagi & Naoshi Sano Vs Danshoku Dieno & Demonio Uno ended in a No Contest when Uno went out of control (2:13).
2a. Rematch – 1 Vs 4 Handicap Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Naoshi Sano, Danshoku Dieno & Pokotan defeated Yukio Naya when Sano pinned Naya with the Swinging DDT (3:13).
3. Utsunomiya Specialty Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo defeated Antonio Honda with the Yurikamome Hold (14:13).
4. Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada defeated Hideki Okatani & Yuya Koroku when Okada submitted Koroku with a Crab Hold (12:01).
5. HARASHIMA, Chris Brookes & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Yuki Iino when Brookes submitted Iino with the Octopus Stretch (11:49).
6. The 37KAMIINA Vs DAMNATION!: Konosuke Takeshita, Yuki Ueno, Shunma Katsumata & MAO defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Yuji Hino & Mad Paulie when Ueno pinned Paulie with the BME (20:07).

In a slight reversal of recent fortunes, Yuki Ueno picked up the win in the main event. However, Daisuke Sasaki got away with the DDT Universal Title still in his possession. Ueno promised to get his belt back and also promised The 37KAMIINA will beat DAMNATION for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow. Backstage Shunma Katsumata said the unit will show they can get results without needing Konosuke Takeshita on their team. MAO said he will embarrass Tetsuya Endo in his own hometown. When Endo later heard that, his message to MAO was to not say Shiraishi City’s name without his permission! DAMNATION will win and make sure The 37KAMIINA will never step foot in Shiraishi ever again!

Antonio Honda’s antics were enough to convince Tetsuya Endo to join in the fun and do his own Honda mannerisms.

Yukio Naya showed up at the start of the show complaining about being left off the card. When Match #2 took place, Demonio Uno went out of control attacking everybody and forced the match to get cancelled. The mascot Pokotan appeared for the first time in ages to stop him and the match restarted as a 4 Vs 1 Handicap match. Uno couldn’t handle being outnumbered and was unmasked reveal it was Naya all along!

Not far away from them, Saki Akai is cooking up an idea to bring the titles back to Eruption. The rest of Eruption aren’t hot on the idea and think Akai isn’t ready to go through with it.

All three Beer Garden shows now have their full list of matches. HARASHIMA is inviting Shuichiro Katsumura & Keisuke Ishii from Ganbare☆Pro to test their mettle against him and Naomi Yoshimura.

The Texas Tornado Charinco Death Match means anything involving bicycles are legal! Sanshiro Takagi put the match together to celebrate a successful repair job on the Dramatic Dream bike after Kenoh broke it at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. His opponent SHINGO is a relatively new wrestler from HEAT-UP. However his main career is in pro cycling with over 100 race wins under his belt.

Four of the fittest bodies as deemed by Tetsuya Endo will face off in the main event. Hiroshi Yamato and Seiya Morohashi are both proud of their physiques. Gorgeous Matsuno’s body isn’t nothing to make fun of either at his age.

DDT “BEER GARDEN-LIKE PRO WRESTLING 2021 DAY 3”, 01/08/2021
Shinjuku FACE

0. Special Under Match – Ultimate Vs Supreme: Tetsuya Koda Vs Hisaya Imabayashi
1. Playfulness Series Act 3: Danshoku Dieno Vs Hideki Okatani

6. Drunk Match: HARASHIMA Vs Daisuke Sasaki
7. The Annual Tradition! Customer Lottery Match: Jun Akiyama, Yuki Ueno, Konosuke Takeshita, Tetsuya Endo, Kazusada Higuchi, Naomi Yoshimura

The luck of the fan lottery might make Akiyama and Takeshita team together in the middle of their rivalry.

I can’t remember if HARASHIMA is a happy drunk or not. He shouldn’t be following Sasaki’s habits, that’s for sure.

The biggest feud in wrestling that nobody ever talks about, and for good reason, is back for another year. The DDT GM Hisaya Imabayashi takes another swing at the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda. Just don’t embarrass yourself again, Imabayashi.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2021”, 15/08/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Kininashi Wanaru ~The Universe In My Head~ Match: X Vs X
2. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Shinya Aoki (c/c) Vs MAO
3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

Yesterday Makoto Oishi made Shunma Katsumata submit and then demanded a KO-D Tag Team Titles shot. He is the leader of Junretsu so Akiyama has to go along with another big title match against Takeshita just one week before he defends the KO-D Openweight Title against him.

Speaking of double titles, Shinya Aoki now holds the DDT Extreme Title and the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. He has to defend both but he is busy falling for scams and losing his savings in the process. MAO was chosen to be his next opponent.

In news that makes zero difference to us non-Japanese speakers, the DDT Extreme Title has been renamed to… the DDT Extreme Title. In Japanese they are changing the name from DDT EXTREME級王座 to DDT EXTREME王座. So they’re just getting rid of 級 which means weight class or grade. I and everyone else always ignored that bit for the Extreme Title so nothing changes for us. While I’m at it I’m going to stop typing UNIVERSAL in upper case for the DDT Universal Title so I can keep things consistent.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Electric Current Explosion 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh Vs Kuro-chan, Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Hikari Noa
1. Double Ring Double Single Match: Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda
1. Double Ring Double Single Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. Special Hardcore Tag Match: Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Chris Brookes & Jun Kasai
3. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
4. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Sasaki keeps getting quick wins over Ueno, all thanks to kicking him in the groin. Ueno wants to fight Sasaki in a clean match for once but he also realises this is just who Sasaki is. With that said, Ueno feels the need to defend the Universal Title no matter which version of Sasaki shows up. Sasaki accepts the match but warns that the humiliation he keeps putting him through is not good for Ueno’s career in the long run.

You are not reading the list wrong, there are currently two Match #1s. Since there will be two wrestling rings set up on site, DDT decided to put two singles matches that will both take place at the same time, one in each ring. There was not enough space on the card to do Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda and Danshoku Dieno Vs Kazuki Hirata one after the other so this was the compromise.

Two new debuts will take place on the show as part of a secret project DDT has been putting together. The DDT Teenage Project is a new class of young pro wrestlers that have been training in DDT’s dojo. The first two wrestlers to debut are El Unicorn (13) and Ilusion (18). There are two others currently in training and DDT are looking for more male students aged 15-18. DDT are still holding regular tryouts for new trainees over 18 alongside this project. This class is completely separate from DDT’s regular dojo training and the goal is to eventually launch a new sub-brand of wrestling shows for these wrestlers. El Unicorn stands out because his age is below the range allowed. There’s evidence out there suggesting who the kid will be under the mask. Not naming names but it’s obviously a certain kid DDT was already booking and training before the pandemic hit. Also Rekka on Twitter spoils it by pointing out the pun in El Unicorn’s name.


Pom And Others Pulled From This Weekend’s Shows, Goro Tsurumi’s Genes

July 7, 2021

Tokyo is entering a fresh state of emergency that will last until 22nd August so don’t get attached with the upcoming schedule. I suspect changes are coming. If they’re banning spectators from the Olympics then I can’t see fans allowed at wrestling shows either. That’s if wrestling shows can go ahead in Tokyo at all.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “DON’T MISS THE SIGNS”, 10/07/2021
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GO GIRL 2 ~WOMEN ONLY ENTERTAINMENT~”, 11/07/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

News came out today that Pom Harajuku tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss this weekend’s shows. Miyu Yamashita and Yuki Aino were in recent close contact with her so they too are going to be absent while they self isolate. Last week Harajuku had a slight fever after receiving her first vaccine and when the fever did not disappear after a few days, she took a PCR test and it came back positive. She has since been feeling better but all three women will be under observation for a period of time until they are deemed ok to return. Both shows are currently having their match cards revised.

If nothing with the schedule changes then we’re going to see plenty of Jun Akiyama Vs Konosuke Takeshita tag matches in the next month.

Last time Yuki Ueno and Daisuke Sasaki were in Shinjuku FACE together, Sasaki beat him in under two minutes with a lot of cheating. Now is Ueno’s chance to get some revenge in the same building.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTAME~” Results

June 9, 2018

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTAME~”, 09/06/2018
Tochigi Prefectural Integrated Cultural Center Sub Hall
163 Fans

1. Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Right Knee Of God (7:14).
2. Hiratimo Dragon & Toru Owashi defeated Mike Bailey & MAO by Disqualification when Bailey unmasked Hiratimo (11:25).
*Hiratimo Dragon wins Mike Bailey’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
3. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Keisuke Ishii & Shunma Katsumata when Paulie pinned Katsumata with the Paulie Buster (8:07).
4. 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno defeated Antonio Honda and Daiki Shimomura when Dieno pinned Shimomura with the True Danshoku Driver (8:35).
5. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Nobuhiro Shimatani when KUDO pinned Shimatani with the Backspin Kick (10:03).
6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno when Takeshita pinned Ueno with the Surprise Rose (13:17).
7. Utsunomiya Specialty! Romantic Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi when Irie pinned Oishi with the Beast Bomber (12:55).

Shigehiro Irie told Kazusada Higuchi that today’s main event was won by the kind of pro wrestling that Irie believes in. He will shows Higuchi more of it at their KO-D Openweight Title match later this month.

Konosuke Takeshita used the Surprise Rose to win today’s match because the new season of The Bachelor Japan begun recently. He doesn’t appear in the show but maybe he can get a spot for the next season. Until then the Surprise Rose is what bachelor Takeshita will give to other wrestlers in the ring.

HARASHIMA was again struck below the belt in a match against DAMNATION. This time when Soma Takao caught one of his kicks it was Daisuke Sasaki who snuck behind HARASHIMA and gave him the low blow. However the DDT Elder Brothers got the win afterwards when KUDO pinned Nobuhiro Shimatani.

Before the 3 Way Match began Daiki Shimomura told his opponents he will go to the top of DDT by beating them. Danshoku Dieno told him that they aren’t at the top right now so that can’t be accurate.

Hiratimo Dragon now has two Right To Challenge Gauntlets in his possession. When Yukinori Matsui was taken out during the match, Hiratimo unmasked and gave it to Mike Bailey, telling him it was a gift. Bailey happily accepted the mask and put it on. Matsui came back, Hiratimo acted like Bailey unmasked him and Bailey was disqualified.

5. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo
6. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
7. A Match To Verify What To Do In Order To Keep Ken Ohka From Crying Against Tenshin Nasukawa: Danshoku Dieno & Ken Ohka Vs Mike Bailey & Tanomusaku Toba

On this week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”, Ken Ohka learned he will have to face kickboxing protege Tenshin Nasukawa later this month. Ohka is scared of what will happen to him when he faces the undefeated kickboxer. Danshoku Dieno is coming up with ideas to motivate Ohka and help him handle his fear. Maybe a match against two kick heavy wrestlers isn’t the brightest idea.

Gota Ihashi has been training to get on Riki Choshu’s next event. There are two problems to this. 1) Choshu wants nothing to do with him and 2) some of the DDT wrestlers are getting annoyed by Ihashi’s behaviour and now want to kick his ass. Yukio Sakaguchi mainly.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOKASAN~”, 16/06/2018
Hiroshima Aster Plaza Multipurpose Hall

1. Soma Takao Vs Makoto Oishi

DDT “DAY & NIGHT SAME DAY BOX OFFICE FESTIVAL IN MATSUYAMA 2018”, 17/06/2018
Matsuyama City Community Center Planning Exhibition Hall

1. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino
2. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Mike Bailey
3. Ryutaro Watanabe Debut Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Ryutaro Watanbe
4. If You Wrestle, Do Something Like This! Matsuyama Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie

DDT and Big Japan are running shows back to back in the same venue that day. However I don’t think there will be cross-promotional matches on either show.

Ryutaro Watanabe was a DDT trainee from 2012 who was never able to wrestle because of two dislocated shoulder injuries. Now he returns years later asking Sanshiro Takagi if he could finally debut and do so in front of his hometown. Takagi accepted and Watanabe will wrestle against Tetsuya Endo. Endo was chosen because his debut in 2012 is the closest to the time Watanabe was in training.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “PARADISE TRAIN 2018”, 17/06/2018
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. The Scent Of Ryukyu Blown By Ganpro ~Abandon Small Differences~: Shota & Rekka Vs Aaron Anders & Black Ribera

3. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Chinko Pro Wrestling – First And Last Sexual Battle!?: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Mineo Fujita
4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Ideological Struggle ~The Enemy Of Yesterday Is The Friend Of Today~: Ken Ohka & Brian Aki Vs Yumehito Imanari & Takeshi Okada
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shuichiro Katsumura

Last year Mineo Fujita created a promotion called Chinko Pro Wrestling and held shows every month or two until a dick injury took him out of action. Fujita blamed the injury on accumulated damage to his dick from wrestling on those shows so this July he is putting the company on hiatus until his dick has fully recovered. Tominaga wants to wrestle Fujita on behalf of Ganbare☆Wrestling to prove that Ganpro is better than Chinko Pro. This impressed Ken Ohka enough to take Tominaga out of his already booked tag match and put him against Fujita one on one.

Aaron Anders is from Compound Pro Wrestling in Oklahoma, USA. He takes Tominaga’s original spot in the opening tag team match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 03/06/2018

4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Take A Chance: Miu Vs Hikari
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Reika Saiki Vs Yuu
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Hyper Misao Vs Saki-sama
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Miyu Yamashita Vs Maki Ito
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yuna Manase

Unfortunately Maho Kurone will be taking a break from Tokyo Joshi Pro to recover from her recent poor health. She had been suffering from headaches and dizziness that have been bad enough to take her off shows. After getting consulted in relation to these symptoms, Kurone was diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and told to recover from home for the time being. Her future plans will be determined once she goes through more examinations. Kurone’s absence means she will not be competing in the Tokyo Princess Cup. The cards for the upcoming Tokyo Joshi shows will go through the necessary changes as soon as their decisions are made.

DNA “DNA 45”, 03/06/2018
Shinjuku Village Studio C 106

1. Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ryota Nakatsu
2. Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Koji Kanemoto & Mizuki Watase
3. Great China Alliance Vs New Beijing Pro Wrestling!: Choun-Shiryu & Rekka Vs Cao Modao & Yasuura No
4. Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Koju Takeda & Rising HAYATO
5. Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Keisuke Okuda & Akita Jo
6. Yuki Iino Return Match – Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 2: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Yuki Iino
7. Naomi Yoshimura Vs Kota Umeda

Before Yuki Iino got injured he began a planned seven match trial series of matches in DNA. He only completed one against Shigehiro Irie before it was put on hold. Since his return match is now against Konosuke Takeshita it makes sense for DNA to bring the trial back and continue where they left off.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTAME~”, 09/06/2018
Tochigi Prefectural Integrated Cultural Center Sub Hall

1. Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Kouki Iwasaki
2. 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Daiki Shimomura
3. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno
4. Utsunomiya Specialty! Romantic Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi

ALL OUT have declared their intentions to become the next KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions. When Takeshita saw the DNA team win the belts, he felt something special. But he is the leader of DDT’s new generation and he needs to be a champion now that he no longer has the KO-D Openweight Title. Since that’s out of his range for now, he is focusing on all of the DDT tag championships. Akito says ALL OUT needs the 6-Man Titles more than the DNA team do. That the belts haven’t been defended since April is Akito’s proof of this. Shunma Katsumata says the time is right for ALL OUT to be champions. Their challenge hasn’t been accepted yet but a tag match between Takeshita & Akito against Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno will certainly set it up.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAKASHIGANI~”, 10/06/2018
Shizuoka Shimizu Marine Bill

1. Keisuke Ishii Vs Yuki Ueno
2. Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino Vs Mike Bailey & MAO
3. ALL OUT Vs DDT Now Variety Group!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Antonio Honda

Looks like the name Makoto Oishi gave to the long time comedy generation of DDT wrestlers has stuck. He, Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine all represent the DDT Now Variety Group.

1. SWF Offer Match: X Vs X
2. X Vs X
3. X Vs X

DDT will be participating at a concert in Nagano headlined by LOW IQ 01 and ANOTHER BEAT BREAKERS. If the first name sounds familiar, that’s because it is the musician behind Katsuyori Shibata’s theme song (please release that song!). The DDT wrestlers advertised for the show are Toru Owashi, Konosuke Takeshita, Daisuke Sasaki, Danshoku Dieno, Mizuki Watase and Tetsuya Endo. There will also be a match provided by local indie SWF.

Isami Kodaka will now represent the Up Up Girls in the Idol Lumberjack 3 Way Match at “PROGRESS AND HARMONY OF WRESTLING” in Sumo Hall on 17/8.

Kota Ibushi sent a message to Kazuchika Okada by using his Rainmaker finisher to win the 3 Way Match. Ibushi then went overboard and gave the Rainmaker to both DJ Nira and referee Daisuke Kiso after the match. He did it for practice reasons.

Kazuki Hirata is the latest victim of the Monster Army’s kleptomania. His wrestling gear was stolen by Antonio Honda & Daisuke Sasaki before the show.
