7. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X
Four are left in the King Of DDT and there is plenty of history to be found in the semi-final match-ups. Kazusada Higuchi has always treated Konosuke Takeshita as a strong opponent and this time won’t be any different. Takeshita is aware that the occasion may trigger something in Higuchi to change him into something even stronger so his plan is not to trigger it. HARASHIMA and Soma Takao were allies in Smile Squash until Takao betrayed HARASHIMA to join DAMNATION. Takao wants nothing more than to win this tournament and fight for the KO-D Openweight Title in Ota Ward Gymnasium because he was born and raised in Ota.
Even though Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto will be getting a KO-D Tag Team Titles match next month, Hirata is unsure if the combined power of himself and Donaruto can work. He asked for a Handicap Match against Daisuke Sasaki to test the team out and determine if they are good enough to become champions.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center
1. There ☆ Is A Dream! Ryutaro Watanabe (DDT Matsuyamania Affiliation) Big Match!: Hideki Suzuki Vs Ryutaro Watanabe
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
Tetsuya Endo ambushed Yukio Sakaguchi at the contract signing to send a message to his challenger. Nobuhiro Shimatani provoked Sakaguchi to distract him while Endo grabbed a chair for the attack. Endo also gave Sakaguchi a Low Blow before signing the contract. To add extra insult to injury, Shimatani said he would sign the contract on Sakaguchi’s behalf. He signed the words “I’m Sorry” into the column meant for Sakaguchi.
The failed DDT trainee is back for another match. Ryutaro Watanabe trained with DDT back in 2012 but injuries prevented him from ever debuting. It wasn’t until DDT came to his hometown in Matsuyama last year when he finally got his debut match. With DDT coming back to the region they want him to wrestle against Hideki Suzuki. They wanted Watanabe to face the toughest opponent available and Suzuki fits that description to a tee. The two have been in the ring together before as part of a recent Hard Hit tag match that happened in March. The time they wrestled each other was short but it was enough for Watanabe to realise how large the wall is he has to climb.
