1. Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi & Kazusada Higuchi defeated HARASHIMA & Keisuke Ishii and Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi when Higuchi pinned Oishi with the Avalanche Argentine Backbreaker from the Stage through a Table (25:38).

For the 5th year in a row DDT travelled over to the HandMade In Japan Fes to make a mess with their Rojo Pro Wrestling match. Sanshiro Takagi wasted no time in collecting chairs while Kazusada Higuchi entered the starting area carrying a ladder. When HARASHIMA and Keisuke Ishii entered they couldn’t find any chairs so HARASHIMA sat down at a nearby drum set and played a tune. Danshoku Dieno & Makoto Oishi then arrived with the remaining chairs.

The match began on the stage but quickly moved to other areas of the venue, the first being the dining hall. Oishi cheekily asked customers if he could take a bite of their food. HARASHIMA attacked Dieno’s backside with traffic cones on his arms.

Down the hall they moved to a marketplace where Dieno took a break to go shopping. He bought a yellow cap. Meanwhile Takagi and Oishi fought their way over to a peanut butter and they forced each other to taste it. Oishi then tried to stab Takagi’s forehead with the tasting spoon. Higuchi lifted the ladder onto his shoulders and spun around, hitting everybody including his partner Takagi. Oishi stopped Higuchi with a chairshot.

Ishii sat Takagi down on a chair and lined him up for HARASHIMA to do a long distance Somato. However Dieno cut HARASHIMA off with the Lip Lock. The match found its way back to the stage where Dieno & Oishi formed a man-made “Hell Car” but their rolling action was stopped by Higuchi.

Ishii stepped back in and fought with Dieno until Takagi arrived on the Dramatic Dream Cycle! He ran over Dieno with it.

A table was set up below the stage where Higuchi and Oishi were fighting. Oishi tried to dive onto Higuchi but he was caught. Higuchi got back on the stage and put Oishi into a Canadian Backbreaker. He then jumped off the stage and hit the Backbreaker through the table! Oishi was out for the count and Higuchi got the pin.

After the match Takagi and Higuchi called the festival organiser up to the stage. Higuchi told him that the Hand Made Festival is held two times a year. He asked the organiser if he wants DDT to return for the winter festival later this year? The organiser said he would consider it if DDT promises to get more involved with the event.

Toru Owashi has been banished from Japan so DDT is bringing in yet another luchador to replaced him. I’m not sure if Washitimo Dragon will be pleased to be here.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs HARASHIMA
*HARASHIMA will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.

Next up for Shigehiro Irie is HARASHIMA. That is as long as HARASHIMA has a Right To Challenge Gauntlet. This is the match Irie wants more than anything when it comes to defending the KO-D Openweight Title. HARASHIMA is the one man in DDT that Irie cannot beat one on one. It is this impassible mountain that has sent Irie on international excursions over and over so he could get stronger. If Irie truly has a vision for what DDT should be then beating HARASHIMA may finally see it come to light.

Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. The World’s Crazy Couple Battle: Makoto Oishi & Misaki Ohata Vs Joey Ryan & Laura James

When it comes to going viral, Joey Ryan doesn’t like copycats. So when he found out that Makoto Oishi proposed to Misaki Ohata in the middle of a pro wrestling match, he wasn’t happy about it. Ryan proposed to Laura James during a match first! Clearly there’s only one place to settle this. Sumo Hall! The first match announced for “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” will be couple versus couple. You see, this is the kind of fun that John Cena and Nikki Bella are missing out on.

DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2017”, 22/07/2017

??? Fans

Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Joey Ryan and Danshoku Dino & Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Takeshita pinned Matsunaga with a Table Splash From The Ladder On The Stage (23:28).

This match was going to be so difficult for one referee to handle so Mike Bailey was brought in to be an official with Daisuke Kiso. As usual the match broke away from it starting area and went across the Handmade In Japan festival. Sanshiro Takagi and Danshoku Dino fought through the farmer’s market. Dino then tried to force Konosuke Takeshita into the men’s restroom with him. Diego rescued Takeshita by putting Dino in a sleeper but even in an unconscious state Dino still reached out to grab Bailey’s crotch. Everyone then moved on to the Accessory Shop where Dino purchased a necklace while the others linked together a chain of Figure Four Neck Locks. Dino then performed the Danshoku Nightmare to everyone along the chain. Outside, Takagi found a bicycle and cycled into his opponents to Lariat them. Joey Ryan had to stop him by sticking a lolly pop into his mouth. Over at the main stage Bailey kept getting in the way and got caught in the crossfire. He got sick of it and fought back by kicking Dino and Diego away then Moonsaulting off the stage onto everyone below. Dino set up a ladder on the stage, climbed up halfway and put himself in the Hell Gate position. Takeshita threw Tomomitsu Matsunaga into Dino’s backside then placed him on a table. Takeshita kicked Dino off the ladder with a Big Boot to the rear then climbed the ladder. Takeshita jumped off and Splashed Matsunaga through the table for the three count! After the match Takeshita invited the Executive Chairman of the festival onto the stage. He said DDT had now appeared in the festical two years in a row then asked if they could come back next year to make it three. The chairman said he would consider it.

DDT “UTSUKOMI! PRESENTS ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017”, 23/07/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Dark Match: Kouki Iwasaki Vs Daiki Shimomura
1. Tetsuya Endo Vs Shunma Katsumata
2. Hirata Collection A.T. & Gorgeous Matsuno Extracurricular Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Hirata Collection A.T. Vs Danshoku Dino, Antonio Honda & Ken Ohka
3. Road To Ryogoku 4 Way Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Soma Takao Vs KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Akito & Diego Vs Mike Bailey & MAO
4. Special Tag Match: Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai Vs Makoto Oishi & Yoshiko
5. DDT Extreme Title – Ladder Match: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Joey Ryan
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii
*Keisuke Ishii will cash in his Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Contract.

The key to the KO-D Openweight Title match will be whether or not Keisuke Ishii will be able to use the Final Cut. He’s been learning how to use the move by Kaz Hayashi for the last month but has not used it in any DDT matches since then. Ishii does not want his generation to be overtaken by Konosuke Takeshita’s generation and he thinks he is the last obstacle to prevent that from happening. Takeshita said that his success has not come from luck alone but he earned it with his power too.

Takeshita gave an update over the events that happened at the end of “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 4” in Osaka on Sunday. Naomi Yoshimura finally succeeded in embarrassing him by stealing his mother, Keiko Takeshita! He does not know if she returned home that night. All he got was a LINE message from her saying she was so excited by the crowd cheering her name that she couldn’t sleep. Amon Tsurumi joked that Ishii should steal Takeshita’s father as part of his own mind games.

Drastic measures are being taken to settle the score between Daisuke Sasaki and Joey Ryan. The two were both knocked out at the end of their Last Man Standing Double Title Match so no championship changes took place. Ryan has since lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title but he is still determined to beat Sasaki for the DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki decided the rematch at Korakuen Hall will be a Ladder Match! There is one slight problem. Normally in Ladder Matches the prize is hung high above the ring. DDT has yet to get permission from Korakuen Hall management to hang a cable from the ceiling to hold the title belt. Consultation is currently taking place between the two parties so there may not be any problems by the time the match takes place.

Ryan intends win the Extreme Title and bring it back with him to America just like he did with the Iron Man Title. Sasaki would prefer for Laura James to be the prize they have to grab instead of the Extreme Title belt. He thinks she weighs lighter than the belt so it should be possible. As part of his training for the match, Sasaki says he has been watching a porno called “Monster Cock” every day. During a photo shoot where Sasaki and Ryan posed with the ladder, Sasaki stuck his arm through the ladder and asked Ryan for a handshake. Ryan shook his hand but then tried to pull it onto his crotch. The ladder prevented Sasaki’s hand from reaching that far. Sasaki then grabbed the ladder and thrusted it at Ryan but it was blocked by his crotch. Ryan overpowered the ladder and threw Sasaki across the room in the process.

Tetsuya Endo has plans to open up a women’s fan club for Mad Paulie called the Paulie Joshi. This show is supposedly going to be the launch day of the club.

If T2Hide lose their match, both Hirata Collection A.T. and Gorgeous Matsuno will be deported from Japan.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~THE 4TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL ROUND~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Syoko Nakajima Vs Reika Saiki
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki
3. Fire Fighting Dollars Vs 30’s Underground Idol Final Battle!: Maki Ito Vs Azusa Takigawa

5. Beer Garden Special 6-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Nonoko & Yuna Manase Vs Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: X Vs X

The Tokyo Princess Cup final four are Syoko Nakajima, Reika Saiki, Yuka Sakazaki and Mizuki. Nakajima is the only one of the four to have reached the semi-finals in previous tournaments. Her next opponent Saiki is looking to avenge her loss to her from last month. Mizuki is the wild card of the tournament. She’s been undefeated in singles matches since her arrival in Toyko Joshi Pro in April. Sakazaki isn’t worried though. Her confidence is through the roof and she is spending her time wondering how to play with her cute new opponent.

Saki-nami is back in Tokyo Joshi thanks to her new mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent. However Saki is not back in ring shape yet after her recovery from illness so Yukio-san will take her place in the ring for NEO Biishiki-gun’s return match. Rika Tatsumi is angry that the unit was allowed back in to Tokyo Joshi after they were forced to split up. Tetsuya Koda explained to her that SIN Biishiki-gun is gone but NEO Biishiki-gun is a brand new unit. Martha the maid has been proven to be a young girl so she’s okay to wrestle. Yukio-san is being allowed to wrestle because Tatsumi wants to beat him up.

Maho Kurone is already fighting off challengers for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Yuka Sakazaki tried to pin her during the press conference but Kurone escaped with the belt. Whenever Kurone is not in public she swallows the belt and stores it in her stomach for safety. See, being a zombie has its perks.

6. Ryuichi Sekine Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi

In his quest to become the BASARA ace, Ryuichi Sekine refuses to accept Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi as the true winner of Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. Hiroshi thinks Sekine is just jealous that the greatest “foreign” wrestler in the company won the tournament.

SAGAT demanded his match with Yusuke Kubo to be a Chain Match. The reason for this is important. SAGAT often used a chain on his enemies back when he was part of the King Legion stable in Union. The same stable FUMA was the leader of.

Iron Man Update, MC.33 Coming To BASARA, Ganbare Prepares For Korakuen

July 13, 2016

Time for an update on the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title’s tour of America. When we last left the belt it was being held by Ricochet, you know the guy from that gif? No, not the English fella the other one. Yeah him. Since then the title lineage went like this: Brian Metz, Matt Striker, Cheerleader Melissa (by massage), Matt Cross (via too much food), Brian Cage, Joey Ryan, Laura James (as burlesque luchadora Alacrana Plata #2), Buggy Nova (in a proper wrestling match!), Ryan again (not in a proper wrestling match), Scarlett Bordeaux, Rhyno (traded an autograph for the title) and now Robbie E (his win counts as a Ladder Match). Last one is interesting because it’s a TNA guy beating someone who just appeared on an NXT broadcast. So yeah, this championship of all things is now providing the inter-promotional competition some fans have craved for years.

5. Ganpuro Hardcore Tag Match: Ken Ohka & Ai Shimizu Vs Yumehito Imanari & Bambi

Ken Ohka is continuing his hard work to make Ganbare☆Wrestling’s Korakuen Hall debut a success. Ideas include different seating layouts including a reserved seat placed inside the ring for the entire show. Ohka was told this was done recently by Kuishinbo Kamen at Shin-Kiba 1st RING but he is not deterred by that. Ohka has hundreds of ideas like having chairs placed in the arena balconies. He thinks they can fill thousands more people that way.

It seems that Yumehito Imanari and Bambi have sorted out their problems and are willing to team together. Imanari is thrilled by this news. This Hardcore match is put together to show Osaka what Ganpuro is all about. Each wrestler will have a weapon with them for the match. Bambi has her whip and Imanari is bringing a lot of candy.

Ohka stormed a Gatoh Move show in Ichigaya earlier this week requesting Emi Sakura to wrestle for Ganpuro in August. Sakura was offended by Ohka’s attitude and turned down the offer. However Sayaka Obihiro took up the offer instead. Ohka wants to make sure Obihiro will be a good enough replacement by putting her in a tryout match at the end of the month.

Mitomi Masayuki is becoming obsessed over Mars Spector. He wants to avenge Shibata’s loss to Spector and is determined to fight him again and again and again until he wins. His stablemate Rainbow Kawamura offered to help. An enemy of Enjo-gun is his enemy too.

DDT “HANDMADE IN JAPAN FES 2015”, 25/07/2015

??? Fans

Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way 6-Person Tag Match: Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi & Hyper Misao defeated Sanshiro Takagi, Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai and Antonio Honda, Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Nonoko when Dino pinned Hirata with the Danshoku Driver onto a table (27:00).

DDT returned to the HandMade In Japan Festival for their annual Falls Count Anywhere match for the event. Before the match began Amon Tsurumi went over the rules. If a wrestler broke any of the products on display in the area, they would have to pay for it. Each of the wrestlers entered the stage wearing handmade masks created by sellers at the event.

Kazuki Hirata’s dance was interrupted by the match starting on the stage. Hyper Misao dove off the stage onto some of her opponents on the ground below. Sanshiro Takagi brought out the Dramatic Dream combat bicycle and Lariated Tomomitsu Matsunaga as he cycled past him. Danshoku Dino brought out a giant hammer and swung wild with it. The match travelled into indoors and Dino reminded everyone to be careful around the trade hall. He and Makoto Oishi bought some smartphone covers and wore them on their hands. Takagi and Antonio Honda bought some t-shirts while Saki Akai found a massive mecha fist. She used it to rocket punch everyone. Back at the outdoor stage Honda did some Bionic Elbows and yelled “Dusty!” during each one. Nonoko joined in but she yelled “Busty!” instead. Everyone fought over the HIRATA GO! glasses and the defeated were thrown into Dino’s ass on a ladder. After that Dino and Hirata were the last left standing and Dino put Hirata through a table with the Danshoku Driver for the win.

After the match Dino told the crowd their is no destruction without creation. He noted there was not as much destruction as last year’s match but they were still able to create. He then spoke of a girl who saw last year’s match and afterwards wanted to be a pro wrestler. That girl is now Hyper Misao. She confirmed the story and started to cry. She came all the way from Gotham City in northern Kanto to visit the event and enjoyed what she saw from DDT. Today was also her first victory which makes the match even more memorable for her.
