Soma Takao is already beginning to fit into DAMNATION. He gave Masahiro Takanashi a Low Blow during the main event. However he didn’t take kindly to Tetsuya Endo referring him as DAMNATION’s new pet after the match. Endo wanted him to speak during the post match promo but Takao stayed quiet.

Shigehiro Irie has nothing to say other than one thing. Keisuke Ishii will never win the KO-D Openweight Title.

DAMNATION attacked HARASHIMA after the 4 Way Match. Takao left him laying with a chairshot across the head.

7. Yonago Specialty Irakuru! Special! Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Jason Kincaid Vs Keisuke Ishii & Makoto Oishi

The big news happening in DDT this week is Soma Takao breaking up the remains of Smile Squash so he can join with DAMNATION. This was a plan that had been brewing in the background for a long time and Takao isn’t just joining the unit to be another one of Dasuke Sasaki’s pets. Maybe by teaming with Tetsuya Endo, Takao can make Endo focus more. Endo seems to be more interested in showing off his pet beetle than wrestling his best lately.

Kouki Iwasaki was supposed to be wrestling this weekend but had to pull out due to acute gastroenteritis. In other words he has diarrhoea.

HARASHIMA is using the same logic for his DDT Extreme Title defence against KUDO as Yuko Miyamoto did for him. HARASHIMA wants to be certain he can beat KUDO in a fair fight with no extra rules needed. This comes from KUDO beating HARASHIMA in their previous singles match last September.

DDT “AUDIENCE 2018”, 20/05/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Rekka Vs Tomomitsu Matsunaga
1. 4 Way Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Jason Kincaid & Mizuki Watase Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Yuki Ueno

5. Konosuke Takeshita Vs Shunma Katsumata
6. Special Single Match: HARASHIMA Vs Soma Takao
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Keisuke Ishii

HARASHIMA gets his shot at revenge on Takao. But with Smile Squash pretty much done for, the numbers game is way against him now.

Kazusada Higuchi already defeated one half of the tag team No. 1 Contenders. Now he’s facing the other. Higuchi and Kota Umeda had a lot of battles against each other in the early years of DNA. It’s time to reginite that feud!

Makoto Oishi thinks the time for change has come. For too long DDT was built around men like Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine. Oishi has found the next generation of wrestlers to take their place: Nobuhiro Shimatani, Daiki Shimomura, Yuki Iino and lastly of course himself. The two sides will battle for the future of DDT! At least that’s what Oishi wants to think.

We have another Lucha Libre superstar joining the ranks. Rihotimo Dragon makes her debut.

The comeback rally by DNA has put Naomi Kingdom on the ropes. Yuki Ueno is winning more often and has become confident enough to challenge Naomi Yoshimura to a match.

Yuki Iino is making up for lost time by picking Umeda for his first match back.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka have put aside their differences and are now strong allies again. Shiryu is confident that Rekka has what it takes to take part in New Beijing Pro Wrestling. China’s oldest wrestling promotion doesn’t want to be overshadowed by that fancy new stuff.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “I HAVE NEVER SEEN 2018”, 19/05/2018
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Attitude Of The Imanari Revolution: Yumehito Imanari Vs Shuichiro Katsumura
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shota

On 1st May Shota signed a full time contract with Ganbare☆Wrestling. To mark the occasion he challenged Keisuke Ishii for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Shota was working with Guts World then went on an excursion to America after the company closed in April. Ohka had always wanted Shota to join Ganpro proper and approached him to make it happen when Shota no longer had a home promotion.

Yumehito Imanari has started the Imanari Revolution so he can be recognised as a main eventer. His campaign began successfully when he defeated Takeshi Okada in the main event of last month’s show. Now he faces Shuichiro Katsumura, the leader of Katsumura-gun and also the person who previously helped train him to fight Ganpro’s enemies. Imanari hopes that this match will be the main event.
