7. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Soma Takao with the Fable (21:11).

When it comes to tournaments, the last six months have been a dominant one for Konosuke Takeshita. He now adds the King Of DDT to his 2019 collection along with the D-Ou Grand Prix and New Year’s Shuffle Tag Tournament. In the final Takeshita defeated Soma Takao, ending DAMNATION’s three year iron grip on the competition. He kicked out of the Official Endless Waltz and also the Reverse Gory Special Bomb. The big reversal in fortune came when Takeshita countered a top rope Gin And Tonic into an Avalanche Canadian Destroyer. From there he hit a Lariat, a Zehi Knee Strike and then the Fable to win. With this victory Takeshita now has a KO-D Openweight Title shot at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July. He doesn’t know who if he will face Tetsuya Endo or Yukio Sakaguchi for the title but either way there will a break in the new era. He will either have to fight the glamorous high flying of Endo or the killer aura of Sakaguchi. Either one will be an exciting path for him. In the end, Takeshita says he will be the one to choose this new era. The new era of Konosuke Takeshita will begin at Ota Ward Gymnasium on 15th July! For Takao his dream of main eventing Ota Ward is over. That is unless he can win the last remaining Right To Challenge Gauntlet…

The Canadian Destroyer being used as a counter for the Gin And Tonic was something that haunted Takao throughout the show. A big version from Takeshita ended his hopes of winning the final but in the semi-final HARASHIMA also hit the counter on Takao in the middle of the ring. However Takao had HARASHIMA scouted and he countered the Somato into the Official Endless Waltz for a nearfall. When the two got back up Takao did a High Kick and dropped HARASHIMA with the Reverse Gory Special Bomb for the win.

The earlier semi-final left both Takeshita and Kazusada Higuchi drawing blood from each other. Takeshita got a bloody nose from a Headbutt while Higuchi bled from the mouth after some late strikes. The match ended with a Lariat duel. Higuchi hit first but Takeshita hit harder and that gave him the win.

A 2 Vs 1 Handicap Match gave us a preview for next month’s KO-D Tag Team Title match. The outcome does not look so good for the challengers. Daisuke Sasaki had his hands full by dealing with both Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto but Donaruto’s lewd antics took the match in a different direction. For his big spot Donaruto stripped out of his gear and wore nothing but a gold thong underneath. Whatever he tried to do, the plan backfired and Hirata took the brunt of the attack instead of Sasaki. What little hope the team had left vanished when Donaruto missed the McFly Bomb and Sasaki trapped Hirata with La Mistica Cross Facelock to get the submission. Hirata apologised to Donaruto backstage for the poor teamwork but he noticed something when Donaruto spoke back to him. Donaruto’s voice wasn’t as low as it was before. Is he slowly turning back into Hirata’s old roommate from the Kobe dojo? Hirata remembers taking a picture with him pretending to be tag team champions back when they lived together. Maybe they can make that a reality on 2nd June after all.

The fifth match of the show was ready to begin when Keisuke Ishii suddenly came out. He lived up to his promise to cash in his Right To Challenge Guantlet. However to him it made no sense to get his title shot after Tetsuya Endo’s match when Endo would be too tired. That would make the winning the KO-D Title meaningless in his mind. So instead he was cashing in his title match now before the tag bout could begin! Despite the noble intentions, Ishii was unable to beat Endo. The champion kicked out of the Tiger Suplex and dodged the Kneel Kick. Ishii kicked out of the Torture Rack Bomb but was put away with the Shooting Star Press.

Endo got on the microphone to brag about his victory but he completely forgot that Yukio Sakaguchi was still at ringside waiting for their tag match to begin. From out of nowhere Sakaguchi ran in and hit Endo from behind with the God’s Right Knee. The tag match was officially declared to have begun while Sakaguchi had Endo locked in a Sleeper Hold. Mad Paulie tried to save his partner but Sakaguchi got rid of him with the God’s Right Knee. One more God’s Right Knee struck an exhausted Endo and Daisuke Kiso ruled he was unable to continue. I’m not even sure Mizuki Watase did anything of note, the win was all Sakaguchi’s.

Sanshiro Takagi was dared by the younger generation of wrestlers to put his Right To Challenge Gauntlet on the line in a 5 Way Match. Before the match begun it was announced that the match would also be fought under Scramble Bunkhouse Hardcore rules. Everyone begun the match starting at a different part of Korakuen Hall but when the bell rang Takagi was immediately targeted by the other four. For the most part it felt like a Handicap Match. MAO broke plastic cases over Takagi’s head, Kota Umeda put him through a table and the two of them were aided by Naomi Yoshimura and Yuki Ueno for a Tower Of Doom Suplex spot to Takagi. Ueno then turned on the others by smashing a case over Yoshimura and attacking the rest with a chair. Ueno went for the Diving Body Press but Takagi used another plastic case to break Ueno’s fall then rolled him over for the three count. Takagi celebrated by hitting a Diving Press onto one more plastic case next to the stage. He said backstage that all of his opponents are stronger than him but they are also really bad friends so he saw Ueno’s betrayal coming.

Antonio Honda damaged his right hand and was unable to do the Gongitsune effectively. He tried doing it with his left hand but the move was still underpowered. His solution was to summon Toru Owashi, Makoto Oishi and Danshoku Dieno to form an Avengers Gongitsune for one big powerful attack! It was so powerful that Saki Akai could not block it. Unfortunately the attack missed its target and Super Sasadango Machine took the blow. Akito then made Sasadango submit to a Figure 4 Leg Lock. Akito says he is physically and mentally ready for the DDT Extreme Title match with Honda. He just has to wait for Honda to choose the match stipulation.

In the pre-show match Ricky Starks got to show off his vocal skills by singing “Livin’ la Vida Loca” while doing the Old School rope walk on Gota Ihashi. Mike Rollins took care of Nobuhrio Shimatani while Starks pinned Ihashi with a Spear.

Some more matches were announced for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”. DDT’s newest signing Yukio Naya will take on Hideki Suzuki. Naya says he is close with Suzuki so he is glad to get a singles match with him. The other new match is Danshoku Dieno Vs Shinya Aoki!

Chris Brookes will be wrestling in DDT throughout June and July as part of DDT’s relationship with Fight Club: PRO. He was introduced in a video parodying the Time’s Up teasers New Japan have been showing on their events lately. This was done to make fun of Brookes being a popular guess for that reveal. Takagi said he met Brookes in New York and was surprised with what he saw in him. He thinks Brookes can do a better job of making DDT more exciting than the current young wrestlers in the company. If the younger Japanese wrestlers can’t do this job then Takagi has no problem with relying on the young foreigners instead.

Aomori Hamanasu Hall

5. DISASTER BOX Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Akito & Yuki Iino when Yoshimura pinned Iino with the Shonenba (11:43).
6. Aomori Specialty Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao Vs Konosuke Takeshita, Mike Bailey & MAO ended in a Double Countout (10:59).
6a. Falls Count Anywhere & No Tag Rules: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Mike Bailey & MAO when Endo pinned MAO with the Shooting Star Press (10:59).

The main event went out of control when a bunch of dives out of the ring led to the two teams fighting among the crowd and all getting counted out. MAO said they couldn’t end the match like this because DDT only comes to Aomori once a year. He asked for a restart this time with Falls Count Anywhere rules. The bell rang and everyone immediately took the match outside the building. Tetsuya Endo did a Moonsault off of a drinks machine. The match found its way back into the ring where Endo pinned MAO with the Shooting Star Press. Daisuke Sasaki actually got a little sentimental after the match because his grandparents are buried in Aomori and he doesn’t get to visit that often. The story was enough to make Nobuhiro Shimatani cry. But enough about that, Sasaki let Endo finish the rest of the speech so Aomori could hear the voice of a champion.

Makoto Oishi’s Marunage bout with Danshoku Dieno turned into a grudge match when Dieno attacked him at the start of the show. In the match itself they fought outside the ring until Dieno gave Mizuki Watase the Lip Lock. Oishi then stripped off Watase’s shorts and whipped Dieno with it. Later Dieno attacked Yuki Ueno and stripped off his shorts. Watase & Ueno had enough and together attacked Dieno & Oishi causing the match to get called off. Ueno said he was sick of the sexual harassment from Dieno. The match was suddenly turned into a tag match between Dieno & Oishi against Watase & Ueno. Dieno & Oishi controlled most of the match with their lewd antics until it eventually backfired and Ueno pinned Oishi with the Atlantida Buster. Ueno wanted everyone to forget about what they saw and move on but Dieno asked for another match for next week’s show in Niigata.

Kazuki Hirata wanted to make a grand entrance from the balcony but he never expected Yukio Sakaguchi would be up there to put him in a Sleeper Hold. Antonio Honda changed up his Gongitsune routine and would have gotten into a romantic embrace with Toru Owashi if it wasn’t for Hirata and Ricky Starks breaking them up. Hirata and Starks then slowly leaned towards each other for a kiss when Hiroshi Yamato pulled down the back of Starks’s tights. Hirata still stood there waiting for a kiss so Sakaguchi kicked him. Starks pulled his tights up and then pinned Hirata with the Double Arm Facebuster.

7. Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Makoto Oishi when Endo pinned Oishi with the Shooting Star Press (18:28).

Oh well it’s back to normal for Makoto Oishi. After yesterday’s success he was back losing to Tetsuya Endo today. The two confronted each other after the match. Oishi Headbutted Endo but Endo hit back with a Lariat forcing Oishi to roll out of the ring. With a week to go before their KO-D Openweight Title match Endo said he will go back to New York to replenish his condition and come back to Japan feeling reborn.

Times have changed but Man will continue to fight. That was the message behind the 5 Vs 5 Generation Elimination match. At the start of the show the two teams faced off in the ring but it turned into a brawl with Super Sasadango Machine getting unmasked in the process. For the match itself most of the eliminations were caused by Ring Outs including the finish where Masahiro Takanashi and Mizuki Watase knocked each other off the apron to the floor. Neither team wanted a draw so they agreed to a final match to decide the winner. Sasadango stepped up for his team because he suffered next to no damage in the match. Watase represented his side so he could get another chance to win. Sasadango hit the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock but couldn’t put Watase away. He got so worked up that he unmasked himself and became Muscle Sakai! Watase resisted Sakai’s trademark moves and pinned him with a School Boy to win the match for the younger generation!

The power of Yoshihiko was eventually used against Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata. It survived being punted by The Moonlight Express to give them a Double Hurricanrana but Asuka then threw Yoshihiko at Hirata and it gave him the Reincarnation out of instinct. Asuka then pinned Hirata with the Moonsault. After the sponsored prizes were given to the winners, Hirata attacked Yoshihiko along with its handler Danshoku Dieno. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hirata thought all was fine and dandy until Dieno attacked him and pinned him with the Danshoku Driver to become the new champion.

Mad Paulie is out of heat and has turned back to normal.

Yokohama Radiant Hall
240 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Hiroshi Yamato, Asuka & Ricky Starks defeated Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata & Gota Ihashi when Asuka pinned Ihashi with the Moonsault (11:06).
2. Kota Umeda, Mizuki Watase & Yuki Ueno defeated Masahiro Takanashi, Nobuhiro Shimatani & Shunsuke Sayama when Umeda pinned Shimatani with the PK (9:33).

6. Hama Special 4 Way Match: Soma Takao defeated Konosuke Takeshita, MAO and Mike Rollins when Takao pinned Rollins with the Official Endless Waltz (13:05).
7. Hama Special Tag Match: Hama Special Tag Match: Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Oishi submitted Endo with a Modified Cross Kneebar (17:17).

The loser taps out the champion! All this talk about Tetsuya Endo beating Makoto Oishi 100 times out of 100 and he ends up submitting to the guy just over a week before their KO-D Openweight Title match. The Cross Kneebar that Oishi used to beat Daisuke Sasaki in February came into play today as a counter for Endo’s Yurikamome Hold. Sasaki was there to break the hold once but Kazusada Higuchi made sure he couldn’t do it again when Endo reapplied it from Endo’s Handspring attempt. Endo tapped out but Oishi would not let go of the hold. When they were pulled apart Oishi said that Endo is fine and should not have given up. It was a big statement for Oishi but also only one win. There will another match between them tomorrow before they fight for the title at Korakuen Hall. Oishi asked the fans to please come support him at Korakuen because he never gets to be in this position outside of his homecoming shows. Endo said backstage that he lost to Oishi and also to himself.

Soma Takao came out the winner of the 4 Way Match thanks to the Official Endless Waltz. He kept rolling Mike Rollins and MAO into Cradles until he finally got the pin on Rollins. Konosuke Takeshita was still in the match despite no longer being involved in the upcoming KO-D Tag Team Titles 3 Way. Sasaki thinks he is running away from it because he knows he can’t win. Rollins and Ricky Starks dispute the finish and hold on to the fact they are undefeated as a team because they are sexy and psycho!

Saki Akai continues her call for more women to wrestle in DDT. It will give her a chance to do more in the company.

There was an unusual amount of waterboarding going on in the opener. Toru Owashi’s team brought in seaweed and placed it over Starks’ face then poured water over it. Starks’ team later did the same to Gota Ihashi, leading to the finish where Asuka pinned him with the Moonsault.

There have been Tiger Cub Rope Death Matches in the past but none have ever had panties attached to them! This is what happens when HARASHIMA lets Antonio Honda come up with his match ideas.

With Shunma Katsumata out of action, a decision hasn’t been made over whether or not Konosuke Takeshita will still be in the KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Either he will get a new tag team partner or he will be removed and the match will be reduced to a 3 Way Tag.

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Akito

What a sneaky little devil Akito is. I thought he used the title shot he won from the Dramatic General Election on the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match back at the start of the year. Turns out it didn’t because #STRONGHEARTS officially challenged ALL OUT for that match, not the other way round. That means Akito still has his shot and he wants to use it for the DDT Extreme Title. He is happy to face either HARASHIMA or Antonio Honda for it.
