Hunt For Full Face, Okuda Will Take DNA To School, TOKYO Princess Tag Titles

August 16, 2017

DNA “DNA 36”, 07/09/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Yuki Ino Vs X
2. Daiki Shimomura Vs Masato Kamino
3. Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda Vs Diego & Royce Isaacs
4. Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Keisuke Okuda & Mizuki Watase
5. Dai Suzuki Vs Tanomusaku Toba
6. Shunma Katsumata & Mike Bailey
7. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Full Face

Both MAO & Rekka have been victims of attacks by the mysterious Full Face. MAO blames Naomi Yoshimura for being involved in the mystery too. He was already determined to unmask Full Face and discover the biker’s real identity but is even more so now that DNA has promised to refund tickets to people who do not enjoy the show.

Keisuke Okuda’s comments about about the DNA roster being lukewarm talents has ruffled some feathers. Both Kouki Iwasaki & Nobuhiro Shimatani would be happy to prove him wrong. Even Mizuki Watase would rather fight him than team with him. But Watase promises to bring an exciting fight for Iwasaki & Shimatani out of respect for them. Okuda has called the three of them elementary students and he will teach them all how to fight properly.

Koju Takeda is from Triple Six.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “~AT THIS TIME, EXCITEMENT IN ITABASHI~”, 12/08/2017
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
180 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Mizuki defeated Marika Kobashi with the Cutie Special (7:10).
2. Syoko Nakajima defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Northern Lights Suplex (8:40).
3. Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Kurone pinned Takigawa with the Ouroboros (12:34).
4. Yuu defeated Yuna Manase with the Katahajime (8:17).
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Miyu Yamashita defeated Reika Saiki & Maki Ito when Yamashita pinned Ito with the Attitude Adjustment (15:40).

Miyu Yamashita & Yuka Sakazaki had different responses to their team winning in the main event. Yamashita was surprised by Maki Ito kicking out of a Head Kick and this drove her to finish the match with the Attitude Adjustment. Sakazaki meanwhile was in an excited mood because her team won the match and she continues to be a strong champion. She asked Yamashita if she will beat Meiko Satomura on 26th August. Sakazaki then asked Reika Saiki if she is willing to win. Saiki said she is but Sakazaki told her she won’t. Sakazaki will win but losing to her is nothing to be ashamed of.

Tokyo Joshi Pro will soon get its own Tag Team Championships. The TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles will be up for grabs in a three show tournament taking place in September and October. Round 1 will be held on 9th September in Shin-Kiba, the semi-finals will be in Yokohama on 16th September and the champions will be crowned at the final in Yokohama on 14th October.

Rika Tatsumi thinks she needs to improve her Hip Attacks so she promises to make her butt stronger. Her goals for the rest of the year is to vanquish NEO Biishiki-gun and win the Tag Titles with Maho Kurone.

NEO Biishiki-gun were in attendance but just for an autograph signing. Saki-nami told the fans if they want to see the unit wrestle they should come to the Korakuen Hall show. She also teased Hyper Misao for being lonely and having nothing to do over at the merchandise table during shows.

Back during Beer Garden week, the GM Tetsuya Koda won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title from Cherry. The side effect of this was Koda now had to defend the title in the upcoming Tokyo Joshi Battle Royal at DDT’s big Sumo Hall show. He teased an announcement regarding his position to be revealed at the end of this show. Koda explained he pinned Cherry because he wanted to make sure the title stays in Tokyo Joshi. He thought about passing the title over to one of the women but he couldn’t decide who. He loves them all and all of them are cute. So Koda’s announcement is he will keep the title for himself! He dared everyone to try and take it from him. But they won’t and he will bring the belt with him to a handshake party with singer Maria Makino soon to impress her.

1. Dai Suzuki Vs Tanomusaku Toba
2. Shunma Katsumata & Mike Bailey
3. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Full Face

The biker mystery in DNA continues and Naomi Yoshimura seems to be involved in it. The biker, now going by the name Full Face, was unmasked as Dai Suzuki during DNA’s Beer Garden show. But that makes no sense because the biker had interacted with Suzuki in front of the audience earlier in the show. Yoshimura said this is all to make DNA more interesting and he seems to enjoy it. In fact, if anybody attending the event thinks it was a boring show then DNA promises to give them a full refund.

Now the stakes are high for Sanshiro Takagi Vs Danshoku Dino. Dino wants full control of DDT if he wins. But Dino’s mother wants him to settle down so if Takagi wins, Dino must get married. This will be settled with a Weapon Rumble match, the first to happen in DDT since 2014. At set times, a new weapon is brought into the match and often these weapons can be anything from objects to famous wrestlers. With this being a 20 year celebration for DDT don’t be surprised if some faces from the past appear.

The full squads for the KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles match are now known and what a glut of insanity it is!

5. Dragon Bombers Vs NEO Biishiki-gun: Yukio Saint Laurent & Martha (w/ Saki-nami) defeated Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone when Laurent submitted Tatsumi with the Euthanasia (8:33).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: Reika Saiki defeated Yuka Sakazaki with the Jackhammer (10:47).

Reika Saiki is the winner of this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup! The Muscle Idol even went over the current TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion to do it. Yuka Sakazaki’s winning streak since becoming the champion ended here when Saiki fought through the pain of a Brainbuster to get back up and hit a Shining Wizard. One Jackhammer later and Saiki was the winner. Saiki said that one year ago she wasn’t in the tournament so she never thought she would progress all the way this year. Every time she wrestles she had more fun but she also becomes stronger. To get even stronger she’ll need to win the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki then threw out the challenge to Sakazaki for a title match at Korakuen Hall on 26th August. Sakazaki refused and said she doesn’t want the match but she eventually agreed to it.

In the earlier semi-finals, Saiki ended Syoko Nakajima’s streak of reaching the final of every Princess tournament. No matter how many times Nakajima avoided the Jackhammer, Saiki continued attempting the move knowing that it would win the match for her. She was right. Nakajima was satisfied with her own performance despite losing. She fought her best and even though she is now further away from getting her title match, she realises how fun it is to wrestle for Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today was a good start of the summer for her.

Mizuki knew she was in for a tough challenge against Sakazaki but she was still confident in her abilities to win. She even brought a second costume to wear in the final. But Sakazaki had her Cutie Special scouted and countered it into the Osaekomi Backslide for the three count. Mizuki learned that concentrating on only one match plan was the reason for her defeat. She now wants to study different ideas she can learn from different places.

Saki-nami was in a bad mood because she has not fully recovered from her illness yet. She blamed the rest of Tokyo Joshi for this “curse” that’s stopping her from being her usual perfect self. So while she is out of action her dark and mysterious doctor Yukio Saint Laurent will take her place in matches. Laurent showed off his medical knowledge by focusing on moves involving joint manipulation. He also attempted to jab Rika Tatsumi and Maho Kurone with a syringe. Tatsumi fought him off but was knocked over when Martha pushed the referee into her. Saki-nami then came in and hit a Big Boot to both Tatsumi and Kurone. Laurent then put Tatsumi in a Straightjacket Choke called the Euthanasia for the submission victory. Tatsumi complained about Biishiki-gun always cheating so now’s the time for her coach to come in and even the numbers. Shiro Koshinaka then appeared! He took out Laurent and Martha with the Hip Attack. Saki-nami almost took the move too but she escaped the ring. She wanted to know whose dirty ass father was this? Koshinaka told her he is teaming with the Dragon Bombers to fight NEO Biishiki-gun at Korakuen!

The grudge match between Maki Ito and Azusa Takigawa ended in another double countout. The two fought over to the crowd where Takigawa tried to tie Ito’s arm to a railing with the microphone cord. It didn’t work. A pissed off Ito responded with a Headbutt and a DDT on the floor. Ito tried to crawl back to the ring but couldn’t make it in time. Ito demanded Tetsuya Koda to restart the match. Koda said he would like to but they had to go on with the show. Instead another rematch will take place at the 26/8 Korakuen show. Both Ito and Takigawa hit Koda over the decision. Sanshiro Takagi then came out with an idea. The rematch will be an Idol Lumberjack Match with himself as the referee! However neither LinQ or Aime will be at the show so it is up to Ito and Takigawa to go out and search for other idol groups to participate as the lumberjacks. Pro, underground or local, any level of idol is open to apply.

The six women in the Beer Garden Special all wrestled while wearing floating pool rings around their waists. Miyu Yamashita had trouble fighting off Marika Kobashi for most of the match. It wasn’t enough that earlier in the show Cherry tried to sneak an ambush pin on her during the opening introductions. She also had Kobashi to defend herself against. Nodoka-oneesan used her floating ring as a shield to protect her from Nonoko’s Boin-maker. She then pinned her with a School Boy. After the match bad tension grew between Nonoko and Yuna Manase. The two collided chest to chest. Yamashita stepped in to try and keep them apart but wound up getting smothered unconscious. Kobashi then pinned Yamashita to win the Iron Man Title! Kobashi’s celebration was cut short when Cherry returned and successfully pinned her to become champion. Cherry said she won the title fair and square. Now she will be the defending champion for the Tokyo Joshi Battle Royal at “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017”.

The next trainee to debut in Tokyo Joshi introduced herself at the start of the show. Yuki Kamifuku is 174cm high, studied in Toyo University and is currently a gravure model. She has no prior experience with club activities and only began training this spring. She will debut at the Korakuen show.

Tweets relating to Tokyo Joshi will now use the hashtag #TJPW in an attempt to reach out to an international audience. The unexpected announcement was booed by the crowd.

Some background on the two masked wrestlers. 24/7 Man was a normal person who was rejected by his crush. So he trained at 24/7 Workout to become a pro wrestler and impress her. Ikinari! Mask is a chef at the Ikinari! Steak shop who was given a magic mask by the head chef. The mask transformed him into a pro wrestler.

Naomi Yoshimura is now using the Shouten Kai.

4a. Rematch: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Diego when Endo pinned Diego with the Shooting Star Press (13:28).

The main event was so heated that the two teams brawled outside the ring and lost track of the count so everyone was counted out. DAMNATION didn’t care and were ready to leave when Konosuke Takeshita called them back and demanded a rematch so the audience will get their match. And also so Diego could win some steak. Sadly, Diego didn’t get what he wanted in the end. Tetsuya Endo beat him and DAMNATION got the Beef Milage card instead. Endo was looking forward to his meal but Daisuke Sasaki turned down the prize. He was too hungover for steak so he gave the card to Nobuhiro Shimatani instead. Sasaki called over to the TBS guy and said to make sure he got the shot of Endo’s Shooting Star Press.

The Gran MilliMeters team were concerned that Danshoku Dino’s antics would ruin their chances of impressing the TBS people. They tried to stop him from doing what he normally does but failed. Even worse was the cameraman made sure he recorded from the right angles to embarrass Daiki Shimomura & Shimatani even further.

Shimatani complained about having to be in another match against Dino after what happened to him the day before. He didn’t want his first kiss to be from a 40 year old gay DDT wrestler! He would only go through with the match on one condition. If he beats Dino then he gets to date one of the women from TBS. Amon Tsurumi couldn’t promise it but sure, whatever gets the match going. Shimatani hulked up and hit Dino with the Leg Drop but in the end couldn’t win. He cried after the match until Tsurumi asked him to close his eyes. He did so. Tsurumi then kissed Shimatani.

Partial Fighting Beer Garden 2017 Schedule

July 25, 2017

It’s that time of year again when DDT spends a week during the summer drinking itself stupid and inviting everyone along to come see the results. Nine different shows in seven days will take place in Shinjuku FACE with plenty of beer being served in the meantime. Every show has a different flavour with many being produced by the wrestlers themselves. So expect to see some ideas that are different or unusual for even regular DDT events. This year the published cards have a lot of gaps in them so some surprises may be in store.

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

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 week begins with a double header held by Tokyo Joshi Pro and DDT. Tokyo Joshi kicks it off with the final rounds of the Tokyo Princess Cup. Syoko Nakajima is aiming to reach the final again for the fourth year in a row. Yuka Sakazaki has been unbeatable since she became the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion. Reika Saiki and Mizuki are both hoping to win the tournament in their first go.

We get to see the regenerated NEO Biishiki-gun back in the ring. There’s also risk of some Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title shenanigans with Maho Kurone in the house.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DDT~”, 30/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shigehiro Irie Vs Rekka
2. Shuten-dōji Vs NωA!: KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata
3. HARASHIMA & Soma Takao Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
4. Blindfold Hidden Breast 3 Way Death Match: Antonio Honda Vs Masahiro Takanashi Vs Nobuhiro Shimatani
5. That Man Finally Came Back! Kazuki Hirata Triumphant Ultraman Chanko Special 6 Tag Match: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & MAO
6. Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie

DDT’s first show of the series is pretty straight forward. Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo get to scramble before their big Sumo Hall main event. Kazuki Hirata returns to DDT after being deported back in April. Oh, and Antonio Honda gets to play with bras again.

The field of candidates for this year’s Dramatic General Election will be announced during this show.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~SMILE SQUASH DAY~”, 31/07/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. DDT Big Sumo Beer Garden Tournament: X Vs X
2. Special Single Match: Danshoku Dino Vs Yuki Ueno
3. Soma Takao Produce Match: Soma Takao Vs X
4. HARASHIMA, Yasu Urano & Yuko Miyamoto Vs X, X & X

Smile Squash gets to briefly reunite thanks to Yasu Urano coming back along with Yuko Miyamoto stopping by.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DAMNATION DAY~”, 01/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Bull Rope Tag Match: Yuko Miyamoto & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Dave Crist & Shigehiro Irie
2. Tetsuya Endo Vs X
3. Round System Drinking & Driving Match: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Masahiro Takanashi
4. Daisuke Sasaki, Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Antonio Honda, Rocky Kawamura & Tanomusaku Toba

Out of all the shows that risk drinking the bar dry, this is amongst the most likely. Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi have a rematch from last year where they got to drink inbetween very short rounds. They both got so drunk neither could continue so it was declared a draw. Adding Rocky Kawamura and Tanomusaku Toba to the main event provides the punch drunk effect that usually shows up on one of these events.

Dave Crist makes his DDT debut here teaming with his buddy Shigehiro Irie.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DANSHOKU DINO & SUPER SASADANGO MACHINE DAY~”, 02/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Only Yesterday: Super Sasadango Machine Vs Ken Ohka
2. Oishi Tradition ~Match Played By Moshi~: Makoto Oishi Vs Shigehiro Irie
3. LPC ~Lariat Pro Classics~: Keisuke Ishii & X Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga & X
4. Play Sandman: Dave Crist Vs Danshoku Dino Vs X

An open invitation is being sent out for wrestlers to Enter Sandman. Gender, nationality and skill level is not a problem. Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine want to give everyone a chance to have a summer memory. Hopefully music licensing won’t be a problem on DDT UNIVERSE. Who am I kidding?

Super Sasadango Machine Vs Ken Ohka is a match 15 years in the making apparently.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~ALL OUT DAY~”, 03/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

0. Dark Match – Something Like ALL OUT: X Vs X
1. X Vs X
2. Shunma Katsumata & Diego Vs Dave Crist & MAO
3. New Beijing Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Zhao Yun & Cao Zhang Vs Dragon-Achooooo!!!!! & Son Goku
4. Single Match Full Of Urano: Yasu Urano Vs Yasu Urano (Special Referee: Yasu Urano)

Everybody is Yasu Urano in the main event.

What the heck? New Beijing is back in Japan! The Chinese promotion has been pretty quiet for the last few years. Last I heard the owner was murdered by Piccolo Daimao but that was years ago.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~SHUTEN-DOJI DAY~”, 04/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Gorgeous Matsuno Triumphant Match!: Gorgeous Matsuno, Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei Vs Yukio Collection A.T., Kazuki Hirata & Toru Owashi

3. Shuten-dōji Vs Monster Army: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi Vs X, X & X (w/ Sgt. Gunso)

Boy that was quick. Gorgeous Matsuno’s deportation isn’t going to last long. Now he’s coming back and bringing the Brahman Brothers with him!

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2017 ~DDT~”, 05/08/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shunma Katsumata & MAO Vs Dave Crist & Diego
2. Strangest Ghost Story In The World Shinnosuka Death Match: Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Saki Akai
3. Beer Garden Specialty Lottery 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito, Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo, HARASHIMA, Shigehiro Irie

The series ends with the annual 6-Man Tag Team Lottery where the teams are randomly paired together by fans in the audience. The other annual event to look out for is the Ghost Story Death Match. It’s been kind of difficult to set up because every year the story teller keeps dying on the way to the venue but shows up anyway!
