September 12, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “HARLEY DAVIDSON & MARLBORO MAN 2021”, 12/09/2021

1. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match I: Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Takahiro Katori with the Crossface Lock (10:15).
2. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match II: Cherry defeated YuuRI with the Cherryton Bomb (9:31).
3. Ganpro Special Mixed 6-Person Tag Match: Shinichiro Tominaga, Makoto & HARUKAZE defeated Shota, Moeka Haruhi & Miyako Matsumoto when Tominaga pinned Shota with a Crushed Oklahoma Roll (10:58).
4. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Shu Sakurai by Referee Stoppage with the Ninja Choke (15:38).
5. Ken Ohka Pre-Debut 20th Anniversary Special Tag Match Part 2: Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ishii pinned Imanari with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (13:52).
6. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match ~ 26 Year Revenge For The Master: Shinjiro Otani defeated Kouki Iwasaki with a Cobra Hold (20:39).

Shinjiro Otani won the main event but may have come out of it with an injury to his left arm. He ignored the pain to continue fighting Kouki Iwasaki, eventually making him submit to the Cobra Hold. Otani said he is glad to have met Iwasaki in the ring. He also thinks that he himself now belongs in Ganbare☆Pro and wants the promotion to continue inspiring him.

An eager Ken Ohka wanted to deal with both Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie at the same time. Yumehito Imanari didn’t want to feel left out of the anniversary celebration so he stood with Ohka ready to fight. Late in the match Ohka hit Irie with the Fire Spear and left it all to Imanari. Unfortunately Ishii got the upper hand and pinned Imanari with the Tiger Suplex. At the end of the show, Ohka gave a speech saying he believes Ganpro can become just as good as NOAH, DDT, New Japan, WWE and AEW! Ganpro’s Korakuen Hall show on 25th September will be the next stepping stone towards that goal.

For his final singles match Shu Sakurai brought out the big gun. He used the Splash Mountain on Shuichiro Katsumura but was too close to the ropes for the pin to count. Katsumura took advantage of the mistake by trapping Sakurai in a Cross Armbreaker. He then transitioned to the Ninja Choke and held on until Daisuke Kiso stopped the match in his favour. Katsumura was honest after the match and said he was going to win easily. But he was lenient to Sakurai to make the match a bit more enjoyable for everyone. Next time in Korakuen all of THE HALFEE will be together for Sakurai’s send off match. Sakurai reminded everyone this isn’t a retirement match.

Shinichiro Tominaga got one over on Shota by pinning him to win the trios match. Shota reminded him that Miyako Matsumoto is not his tag partner so things will be different at the IJ Tag Team Titles match.

The newcomer YuuRI was put to the test by Cherry. YuuRI focused on using a Sleeper Hold but Cherry figured her game plan out and targeted her opponent’s legs. From there Cherry kept up the pressure and won with the Cherryton Bomb.

Takahiro Katori taunted Nobuhiro Shimatani during their match. He asked if his attacks were weakened because DAMNATION is disbanding? The insults fired up Shimatani into making a comeback and winning the match.

Yuki Arai is back after a month of Covid related setbacks.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

2. Special Tag Match: Jun Akiyama & Yoshihiko Vs HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata
3. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda
4. DAMNATION Dissolution Match: X Vs X
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

This is the end for DAMNATION. They are forced to split up after losing the final of the DRAMATIC SURVIVOR tournament. What their final match will be and who will be involved is currently a mystery.

Jun Akiyama recently made the shocking confession of wanting to team with Yoshihiko! He admitted he would rather do this than challenge for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles.

The Pheromones have been teasing the addition of a third member to their team. Whoever it is will be showing up at Korakuen Hall!

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Yoshiaki Yatsu, Akito, Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura (c) Vs Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani
2. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Minoru Fujita

Well Akiyama is challenging for the 8-Man Tag Titles anyway. He would rather the other four members of Junretsu fight for it but Makoto Oishi is injured long term so Akiyama has to be there. Maybe a first time in-ring meeting with Yoshiaki Yatsu will motivate him. The Olympics in Japan is now completely finished but can the champions keep their flame burning?

DDT “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 8 ~LAUGHING GATE FORTUNE~”, 17/10/2021
Osaka City Abeno Ward Center

1. Special Singles Match To Commemorate Yukinori Matsui’s 25th Anniversary Of His Debut Two Years Later: Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro

Welcome to the alternate reality where Osaka Pro Wrestling still exists and has Jun Akiyama and Yusuke Okada both under contract. They’re going to have a local battle against Magnitude Kishiwada & Inaba no Buffalo. Kishiwada in particular is rather proud of being “Osaka’s Strongest Wrestler”. Time to put that to the test.

September 4, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
92 Fans

0. Urgent Decision Match: Yuna Manase defeated YuuRI with the Suzuki Dynamic (3:59).
1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori defeated Tokiko Kirihara with a 2nd Rope Diving Body Press (8:10).
2. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong Domestic Ladies Police Man defeated Hong Kong International Ladies Police Man and Hong Kong International Undercover Mafia when Domestic Ladies Police Man pinned Undercover Mafia with the Spear (8:07).
3. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Tiger Suplex (10:55).
4. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari defeated Cherry & Shota when Mongol pinned Cherry with the Diving Senton onto a chair (13:02).
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE defeated Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi when HARUKAZE pinned Manase with the Fire Spear (11:57).

There was good moments and bad moments for Yuna Manase on today’s Ganbare☆Joshi show. The bad moment was losing to HARUKAZE in the main event. Yuu Yamagata cut down Manase with a Buzzsaw Kick and HARUKAZE finished her off with the Fire Spear. This is the first time HARUKAZE has beaten Manase. Yamagata rubbed the result in Manase’s face and said Ganjo only became interesting when she showed up. Yamagata isn’t the wrestler she used to be but she isn’t ever going to let Manase beat her! Moeka Haruhi had to motivate Manase to do her best because that is what Ganbare means. Manase agreed and promised to get stronger, beat Yamagata and return HARUKAZE to Ganjo!

The good news for Manase and Ganjo happened at the start of the show. Manase’s opening speech was interrupted when suddenly YuuRI entered the ring. The former JUST TAP OUT wrestler surprised everyone even further when she announced that as of today she is now signed to Ganbare☆Pro! Manase didn’t know about this but is happy to have a new companion in Ganjo. They agreed to an impromptu match which Manase won. She told YuuRI afterwards to never give up on Ganbare☆Joshi. Backstage YuuRI explained why she signed with Ganpro instead of another company that fans were expecting she would go to. She is the only woman in Ganpro who is under 30 and she wants to freshen up the promotion while also showing her strength.

Both Makoto and Itsuki Aoki were unable to be at the show so they were replaced with Hong Kong Domestic Ladies Police Man and Hong Kong International Ladies Police Man. The Hong Kong International Police Man that was replacing Choun-Shiryu turned out to be crooked. His true identity is Hong Kong International Undercover Mafia. He may have attempted a hit on Ken Ohka. He definitely paid off the referee in a failed attempt to win.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 SUMMER ~STEP AND A STEP~” Results

September 4, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 SUMMER ~STEP AND A STEP~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
110 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Hikari Noa defeated Kaya Toribami with the Blizzard Suplex (8:06).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuki Kamifuku defeated Miu Watanabe and Arisu Endo when Kamifuku pinned Endo with a Crucifix Pin (7:17).
3. Shoko Nakajima, Raku & Moka Miyamoto defeated Mirai Maiumi, Suzume & Haruna Neko when Nakajima pinned Neko with an Inverted Hurricanrana (13:29).
4. Hyper Misao, Nao Kakuta & Nodoka Tenma defeated Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Pom Harajuku when Tenma pinned Harajuku with the Backflip (12:16).
5. Yuki Aino & Marika Kobashi defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh when Aino pinned Yamashita with the UBV (Infinite Love And Flame) (14:11).

The main event did not go the way 121000000 expected. Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh had no trouble working together but they ended up losing. Yamashita was about to give Yuki Aino the Attitude Adjustment when Marika Kobashi kicked out her leg. Kobashi then got rid of Itoh to give Aino the shot at victory. Aino avoided the Skull Kick and surprised everyone by pinning Yamashita with the UBV!

Itoh couldn’t believe it. She’s done so much to catch up to Yamashita only to see her lose before their big title match? Itoh wants to beat Yamashita at her best but now it’s being ruined by this weaker version that showed up today. Itoh left the ring crying and Yamashita followed feeling shame. Backstage Yamashita said she wants a singles match against Aino to put things right. Meanwhile back in the ring Arai said the important thing to take from today’s man even is she and Kobashi won! Kobashi agreed and told the fans there is more to Tokyo Joshi Pro than just Yamashita and Itoh. Those two are the only people featured on the “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” poster but Aino & Kobashi wants the fans to come see the show for everyone else too.

Mirai Maiumi had her final match in TJPW. She wore a custom T-shirt with the message “I’m Not Saying Goodbye! Thank You All!! No Stereotype!” written on it along with today’s date. After the match Maiumi got to shake hands with the other wrestlers. She hugged Suzume and got a pat on the head from Shoko Nakajima. Backstage Maiumi said this isn’t goodbye because her story as a pro wrestler will continue. She is grateful to everyone who supported her so far. She also got said something private to Suzume. She’ll leave it up to the fans to imagine what she told her.

Rika Tatsumi was absent from the show due to illness. Her tag match was turned into a 3 Way Match with the remaining participants.

3. Shoko Nakajima, Raku & Moka Miyamoto Vs Mirai Maiumi, Suzume & Haruna Neko
4. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Pom Harajuku Vs Hyper Misao, Nao Kakuta & Nodoka Tenma
5. Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh Vs Yuki Aino & Marika Kobashi

I seriously doubt any of the women here will make the last minute trip to Chicago for the All Out Casino Battle Royal. Don’t think that needed to be said but it’s been a crazy year.

DDT “DRAMATIC SURVIVOR 2021”, 04/09/2021
Nagoya Congress Center Event Hall

1. Mad Paulie Vs Keigo Nakamura
2. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Tournament – Round 1: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazuki Hirata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino

6. Special Single Match: Chris Brookes Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
7. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Tournament – Decision Match: Losers Of Match #1 Vs Losers Of Match #2

Tomorrow either DISASTER BOX, DAMNATION, Junretsu or The 37KAMIINA will be no more. A fan vote on DDT’s Twitter account has DISASTER BOX as the “favourites” to lose everything and break up. Remember, if the losing team features either the KO-D Tag Team Champions or KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions then those belts must be vacated too!

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori Vs Tokiko Kirihara
2. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong International Police Man Vs Makoto Vs Itsuki Aoki

4. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Yuna Manase already got a small piece of HARUKAZE ever since the latter betrayed Ganbare☆Joshi to join Yuu Yamagata’s side. Manase still wants HARUKAZE to come back to her senses so her anger is aimed more at Yamagata. What position Moeka Haruhi will take in this situation remains to be seen.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021 TOUR IN OSAKA”, 05/09/2021
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Yukio Sakaguchi & Yuya Koroku Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Keigo Nakamura

3. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Akito, Mizuki Watase & Yukio Naya
4. DAMNATION Vs Junretsu!: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao Vs Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada & Hideki Okatani
5. Special Single Match: Shunma Katsumata Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno
6. Osaka Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Yuki Ueno & MAO Vs Chris Brookes, Antonio Honda & Kazusada Higuchi

So does the rest of the shows in September have to change some of their matches when one of the units splits up or will there be a farewell period for the losing group? DDT hasn’t said either way.


Endo Visits Kobashi, 121000000 Still Alive, Ganpro’s Big Matches

August 31, 2021

Earlier this week Tetsuya Endo visited Kenta Kobashi at his gym to talk about his successful KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”. Kobashi praised Endo for getting bigger. He noticed Endo’s movements haven’t changed and his posture in the air is good so his weight gain isn’t negatively effecting his performance. Endo was advised to target 95-100kg for his ideal weight. However Kobashi also said that Endo didn’t stand out much during the match. Instead the focus was entirely on Yuji Hino and Saki Akai.

Kobashi moved on to talking about Endo’s rivalries with Konosuke Takeshita and Jun Akiyama. He thinks Takeshita defeating Akiyama while Endo couldn’t is the kind of frustration Endo needs in order to become stronger. That along with the support of his fans is what can make Endo the champion again. Endo then showed Kobashi a video of a brand new finishing move he is working on, one nobody else has seen yet. Kobashi approves of it and recommends Endo to work on his arm strength because it is the key to make this mystery move work. He also told him to give it a good name so it will become the move that represents Endo. After an hour long talk, Endo worked out in the gym with Kobashi coaching him.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

My nightmare of trying to write up the Muscle show report is back. Let’s see what 2.9 Dimensional ideas Muscle Sakai has for The Finisher Boys and The Folding Chair Boys this time. Maybe Endo will do another run in.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 SUMMER ~STEP AND A STEP~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Hikari Noa & Kaya Toribami
2. Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo
3. Shoko Nakajima, Raku & Moka Miyamoto Vs Mirai Maiumi, Suzume & Haruna Neko
4. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Pom Harajuku Vs Hyper Misao, Nao Kakuta & Nodoka Tenma
5. Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh Vs Yuki Aino & Marika Kobashi

The 121000000 tag team is still alive even though Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh have a big match against each other coming up. Itoh originally thought they would have to split up but Yamashita convinced her that continuing their team will not effect their match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”.

GANBARE☆PRO “HARLEY DAVIDSON & MARLBORO MAN 2021”, 12/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Ganpro Special Mixed 6-Person Tag Match: Shota, Moeka Haruhi & Miyako Matsumoto Vs Shinichiro Tominaga, Makoto & HARUKAZE
2. Ganpro Triple Big Singles Match: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Takahiro Katori
3. Ganpro Triple Big Singles Match: Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Shu Sakurai
4. Ganpro Triple Big Singles Match ~ 26 Year Revenge For The Master: Shinjiro Otani Vs Kouki Iwasaki
5. Ken Ohka Pre-Debut 20th Anniversary Special Tag Match Part 2: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie

Look at Shinjiro Otani. He is spoiled for choice when it comes to matches against the Ganbare☆Pro roster. They all want a piece of him and he wants them too. Otani asked for a match against Kouki Iwasaki because Iwasaki’s mentor is Kenichi Yamamoto. In 1995 Yamamoto defeated Otani at a UWFi event. 26 years later Otani gets a chance to get some measure of revenge by fighting his student.

Shu Sakurai will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from Ganpro after 25th September. He explains this decision is being made for positive reasons and he will be using his experience from wrestling to take on new challenges. This is not a retirement from pro wrestling so he may return some day having grown as a pro wrestler and also as a person. Before he leaves, Sakurai wants to wrestle Shuichiro Katsumura so he gets to have that match.

GANBARE☆PRO “BAD COMMUNICATION -ULTRA PLEASURE STYLE 2021”, 25/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Yuna Mizumori Vs Asuka & HARUKAZE
2. THE HALFEE Vs Team Sanyo Sanin Full Scale Battle: Katsuzaki Shunosuke, Moehiko Harumisawa & Shu Sakurai Vs Minoru Fujita, Nobuhiro Shimatani & Itsuki Aoki
3. Ganpro Special Tag Match: Tatsuhito Takaiwa & Shigehiro Irie Vs Yumehito Imanari & Kouki Iwasaki
4. IJ Tag Team Titles: Kenichiro Arai & Shota (c) Vs Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga
5. Ganpro Special Single Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinjiro Otani
6. Ken Ohka 20th Anniversary Special Tag Match ~Roar Of The Lion King~: Ken Ohka & Isami Kodaka Vs HARASHIMA & Kengo Mashimo

Otani’s other big singles match this month is a first time one on one meeting with Keisuke Ishii. His appearance in Ganpro has given Ishii new motivation after he went through a slump from losing the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Ishii made the challenge and Otani has been impressed enough with his work to accept it.

Tenryu Project has approved of Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga’s challenge for the IJ Tag Team Titles. They gave Kenichiro Arai & Shota permission to defend the belts after the champions accepted the challenge.

It was Otani’s idea to get Tatsuhito Takaiwa booked on the show. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve been noticing this Ganpro/ZERO1 relationship for a while and I wonder if it will lead to anything more permanent down the road.

Sakurai ends his wrestling career with the rest of THE HALFEE.


GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021” Results

August 29, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021”, 28/08/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
101 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganpro Special Single Match: Shigehiro Irie defeated Takahiro Katori with the Beast Bomber (12:32).
2. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Asuka defeated Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE when Asuka pinned HARUKAZE with the Liger Bomb (8:28).
3. Special Tag Match That Leaves No Stone Unturned: Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Yasu Urano & Shota when Tominaga pinned Shota with the JK (12:28).
4. Ken Ohka Pre-Debut 20th Anniversary Special Tag Match: Ken Ohka & Seiya Morohashi defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Shu Sakurai when Ohka pinned Sakurai with the Flame Spear (14:09).
5. Ganpro Special 6-Man Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki & Rekka defeated Shinjiro Otani, Yumehito Imanari & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Ishii pinned Shimatani with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (22:29).

Ever since Keisuke Ishii lost the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title he felt like he had taken a step backwards in Ganbare☆Pro. But he has gotten out of his sad state and regained motivation once Shinjiro Otani started wrestling here. After winning today’s main event, Ishii asked Otani for a singles match at the 25th September Korakuen Hall show! Otani has been impressed by Ishii’s matches and can’t refuse a challenge from him so he accepted. However Otani also had a few requests of his own. First, he wants a singles match against Kouki Iwasaki somewhere down the road. He found out Iwasaki is a disciple of Kenichi Yamamoto, an old rival of his. He wants to wrestle Iwasaki for that reason. And second, he invited Tatsuhito Takaiwa to participate on the Korakuen show because he has the date free in his schedule. He hopes Ganpro will put him in a suitable match.

The first match in Ken Ohka’s 20th Anniversary celebration went a bit off the rails. Seiya Morohashi ignored the big team entrance and went straight to fighting Shuichiro Katsumura & Shu Sakurai. A Waterwheel Drop from Sakurai almost pinned Ohka but he kicked out. Sakurai was then hit with two Spears, one from Morohashi and then the Flame Spear from Ohka to end the match. Ohka and Katsumura almost came to blows afterwards but Sakurai stopped them and gave an important announcement. For private reasons he will have his final pro wrestling match on 25th September. He explains this is a positive decision and to treat this more like a vacation away from wrestling rather than a retirement. He now only has one month left to wrestle but he will do his best for the remainder of it. Ohka supports Sakurai’s decision and told him to come back when he is able to. Sakurai said backstage that he wants his remaining matches to be with THE HALFEE and Katsumura in particular. He noticed Katsumura left the ring during his announcement.

Both Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga are currently in the hunt to win championships. That’s why today was a big match for them because Shota currently holds one half of the IJ Tag Team Titles that were revived by Tenryu Project earlier this year. Tominaga pinned Shota in today’s match and challenged him to put the titles on the line against them at Korakuen Hall. Shota blamed the defeat on Yasu Urano and said he would not have lost today if the other champion Kenichiro Arai was teaming with him. Shota accepted the challenge but warned that Tenryu Project needs to authorize the title match first before it can take place.

5. Costume Change Match: Mizuki & Rika Tatsumi defeated Marika Kobashi & Pom Harajuku when Mizuki pinned Harajuku with the Cutie Special (10:07).

The return of Toyko Joshi Pro’s fan club show featured a lot of unusual matches. The main event had all the wrestlers wearing different costumes from the TJPW roster. They were randomly chosen at the start of the show by picking mystery bags left in the ring. Mizuki wore Yuka Sakazaki’s gear, Rika Tatsumi was dressed as Nodoka Tenma, Marika Kobashi got Shoko Nakajima’s costume and to finish it off Pom Harajuku appeared as Miyu Yamashita. Everyone tried to copy the wrestlers they were dressed as.

Instead of having a wrestling match Yuka Sakazaki and Nao Kakuta took part in an Athletic Meet. They faced each other in three games. The first was an obstacle course where they had to spin around in circles, bite a piece of bread hanging over their heads, search for a piece of candy hidden in a plate of powder using only their mouths and then run a lap around the ring. Sakazaki won that race and earned 10 points. The 2nd game was a Three-legged Race with Sakazaki teaming with Suzume and Kakuta teaming with Moka Miyamoto. They all had to race out of the venue to the nearby shop, buy something Daisuke Kiso would like for less than 500 yen and make it back to the venue first. Bonus points were given based on how much Kiso liked his gift. Kakuta & Miyamoto won the race and bought a can of beer for Kiso (Sakazaki & Suzume got protein milk). Kakuta was given 9 points out of 10. She was deducted one point because the beer wasn’t Kiso’s favourite flavour. The final game worth 30 points was a Horse Fight. One team lifted Sakazaki onto their shoulders and another lifted up Kakuta. They had to fight in the air and grab their opponent’s hat from their head to win. Sakazaki got to grab Kakuta’s hat first, winning both the round and the entire match.

On the morning of the show, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino had an accident where they fell and hit their heads. The result was both of them had personality changes and turned into a bunch of delinquents! They trapped Daisuke Kiso in the corner with tape and threatened him with a knife! Hyper Misao couldn’t fight them off by herself so she called for another superhero to help her. It was The Return Of Ultra Shoko to the rescue! Together they defeated The Bakuretsu Sisters and turned them back to normal. But it wasn’t entirely a heroic situation. Tenma held Kiso hostage again but Shoko decided to ignore it. She told the “middle aged man” Kiso to die for justice so she could hit the Ultra 619 on Aino and win the match. Sacrificing captives isn’t the right thing for superheroes to do but it got results so what do I know?

Maki Itoh & Yuki Kamifuku both sang “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis” for their entrance. After they defeated Mirai Maiumi & Kaya Toribami, Itoh said she is going to win the Princess Of Princess Title at Ota Ward Gymnasium.

Miyu Yamashita wore her old costume to fit in with The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) more. She was the “Hot Pink” member of the group today. Together they sang “Upper Kick” to open the show. When it was time to wrestle, the other members had to remind Yamashita she is an idol and couldn’t act aggressive. She got back into character and was still able to win the match for her team.

Now that “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is in the rear view mirror, DDT is starting to shake up a little bit with new champions, new youth, a new team and the threat of existing alliances getting torn apart. We’ll get to each one show by show.

DDT “DRAMATIC SURVIVOR 2021”, 04/09/2021
Nagoya Congress Center Event Hall

1. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura & Kazuki Hirata Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino
2. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Round 1: Junretsu, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, Yuki Ueno & MAO
3. Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Antonio Honda

6. Special Single Match: Chris Brookes Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
7. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Decision Match: Losers Of Match #1 Vs Losers Of Match #2

The name of the show isn’t just there to sound cool. The Dramatic Survivor Unit tournament was revealed to be a reverse bracket where the losing teams advance to the final. Win a match and your team is safe, lose all your matches and your unit must split up! Sanshiro Takagi came up with the idea to avoid DDT getting stale. He wants all the teams to fight for survival and there is no bigger motivation than the survival of your unit! To make things even more riskier, if a champion team is in the disbanding unit they will be forced to vacate their titles too! So if The 37KAMIINA lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D Tag Team Titles. If DAMNATION lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. For Junretsu and DISASTER BOX there will be no championships stripped.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori Vs Tokiko Kirihara
2. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
3. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota
4. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong International Police Man Vs Makoto Vs Itsuki Aoki
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Choun-Shiryu is unable to be on the show due to “circumstances”. His spot in the 3 Way Match is coincidentally being filled by the rarely seen Hong Kong International Police Man.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match ~ DRAMATIC WARS: Yoshihiko, Mecha Mummy & Pokotan Vs Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Antonio Honda
2. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
3. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino

Back at the Beer Garden shows Danshoku Dieno and Yuki Iino appealed to form a tag team. Their request wasn’t met because they couldn’t come up with a suitable or tasteful team name. Well today they have their team name and also nicknames to match. From now on Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino are Pheromones! They immediately challenged Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata for the KO-D Tag Titles and got their shot so they would stop annoying the champions.

If the KO-D Tag Titles happen to be vacated because The 37KAMIINA lose the Dramatic Survivor tournament, then the match will be changed into a decision bout to determine the new champions. So at least Takeshita & Katsumata have a chance to reclaim the belts after they are forced to give them up.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The new KO-D Openweight Champion Takeshita took some time to reflect on his latest accomplishment. After finally beating Jun Akiyama, the KO-D Title belt now has a different weight to it and Takeshita feels a different responsibility when it comes to defending it. He is in his best condition because of this pressure and is ready to take on Chris Brookes. He hasn’t beaten Brookes since July 2019 when he defended the KO-D Title against him back then. Brookes has won every singles match they’ve had together since then, which were either championship or tournament matches.

Masahiro Takanashi has become active again since coming back from injury. Not in the ring though because ChocoPro doesn’t have one. He wrestles his first match in DDT since March 2020.

“MASAHIRO TAKANASHI BOX OFFICE YOPPARAI IS BACK”, 01/10/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Dragon Sakurabo, “Old Wise Man” Human-Zee & Tiger Jeet Singh-juku Sumidagawa (w/ Haru Miyako) Vs Gota Ihashi & Antonio Honda (w/ Sayaka Obihiro & KUDO)
2. Saki Akai & Rina Yamashita Vs Yuna Mizumori & Mei Suruga
3. Yukio Sakaguchi, ken45° & Manjimaru Vs Isami Kodaka, Daiki Shimomura & Yasu Urano
4. Kenichiro Arai Vs Baliyan Akki
5. Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes Vs Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei (w/ Gorgeous Matsuno)

Third time’s the charm. Takanashi even got to keep the entire card this time.

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

After stealing the belt multiple times over the last month, Daisuke Sasaki in now officially the DDT Universal Champion. His first title defence will be on 12th October and he has the right to choose his challenger. He chose CM Punk but DDT cannot make that happen for multiple reasons. Sasaki then picked Minoru Fujita as his back-up choice. Fujita beat Sasaki at July’s DAMNATION produced show so Sasaki wants to avenge that loss. The match is not official yet but DDT will send the challenge over to Fujita.
