The first Ultimate Tag League winners have been crowned and it is The 37KAMIINA! A tiebreaker match was expected to come out of the last day and it came with Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata facing off against Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino from DAMNATION. Their match earlier in the tournament ended in a draw and both teams were already tired from already wrestling their own matches earlier. It all came down to Katsumata using all of his strength to give Hino a Back Drop. With the big guy out of the way, they were able to give Sasaki the MADMAX to win the league. Takeshita thanked the fans for supporting them to the very end. Katsumata was really happy because this was the first league he has ever won. He then challenged Smile Pissari to a KO-D Tag Team Titles match!

The 37KAMIINA went over Junretsu to reach the tiebreaker with Katsumata getting the upset pinfall over Jun Akiyama! At first it looked like Junretsu had the match won when Makoto Oishi put Takeshita in the Fujiyama Knee Lock while Akiyama had Katsumata in a Front Neck Lock. Akiyama went to finish him off with the Wrist-Clutch Exploder when Takeshita broke in and hit a Knee Strike. Katsumata then rolled a surprised Akiyama over with a School Boy for the three count.

DAMNATION made it to the tiebreaker at Eruption’s expense. Yukio Sakaguchi trapped Sasaki in the Cross Armbreaker but Hino broke it by Power Bombing Kazusada Higuchi onto them. Sasaki then put Sakaguchi into the Cross Facelock and Sakaguchi had to give up.

In a preview of the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match, DISASTER BOX defeated DAMNATION and HARASHIMA sent a message to Akiyama by using one of his signature moves to win. After HARASHIMA hit the Somato on Mad Paulie, he then applied a Front Neck Lock to make him submit. Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao took their anger out on Kazuki Hirata afterwards even though he wasn’t in the match. Endo also showed disrespect to Toru Owashi at the start by stepping on the O-40 Title belt and calling him a pig. Naomi Yoshimura came out of the match feeling so motivated that he wants to target all of the DAMNATION members for his stablemates.

Akito couldn’t hide his smile when he saw Yuki Ueno enter the ring with his waist all taped up. Ueno got the last laugh today by hitting him with the WR while his team went on to win the match. Akito had to be helped out of the ring and Ueno told him he is still going to wear the DDT UNIVERSAL Title despite being bandaged up.

Hirata was mistreated even more when the 5 Way Match began before he entered the ring. Danshoku Dieno propped himself over the turnbuckles to provide an An*l Power charging station for everyone to use. It powered up Antonio Honda’s Gongitsune, Saki Akai’s Big Boot, Yuki Iino’s Haka Elbow and Hirata’s Tegatana hand. Iino hit the Haka Elbow on Honda but Hirata wiped his an*l charged hand over Iino’s face for a distraction and then stole the pin.

Toui Kojima is still trying to be accepted into The 37KAMIINA. He did the “NeppoWER!” pose to Keigo Nakamura instead of a handshake. Meanwhile Hideki Okatani almost broke Yuya Koroku in half with a Crab Hold.

Last day of the Ultimate Tag League and the four active teams all have a chance to win. It’s whoever finishes in first place uncontested who wins the league. If there is a tie at the end of the show then there will be a final match to break the deadlock. Junretsu and Eruption have the clearest chances to win in one match as long as one or the other loses. The 37KAMIINA and DAMNATION need to win their matches and hope one or the other doesn’t lose just to reach the tiebreaker.

Super Sasadango Machine attempted to crash another NOAH show this week to hold negotiations with Takashi Sugiura and Kazushi Sakuraba. He was stopped at the entrance again but this time purchased a ticket to be allowed into the show. Unfortunately he was told by a staff member that neither Sugiura or Sakuraba were present. Sasadango explained to him that he brought gifts for Sugiura and Sakuraba and asked for them to be passed along. Sugiura is getting sasadango dumplings while Sakuraba is getting medicine for his pollen allergies.

X in the Tokyo Joshi Pro opener is still a mystery. YUMI’s big news over the weekend is she’s entering the idol industry as part of a new group called Tokyo Survivor. So that’s her completely out of wrestling now.

“MASAHIRO TAKANASHI BOX OFFICE YOPPARAI IS BACK”, 13/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE

1. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Fuminori Abe

January was supposed to be the return match for Masahiro Takanashi after being out of action with knee injuries. However he cancelled his self-produced show due to the pandemic. After months of waiting he finally decided to go ahead with the show and is setting it up for this July. Takanashi’s scheduled opponent hasn’t changed. It’s Fuminori Abe, the man he last fought when his injury happened. This year Takanashi has done an exhibition match and has shown up on some wrestling shows here and there but he hasn’t been in a proper wrestling match since March 2020 where his injury took place.

Also on the show are Chris Brookes, Yukio Sakaguchi, Isami Kodaka, Emi Sakura and the UMA Corps. More are expected to appear.

Ultimate Tag League 2021 Standings

1. Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi (4)
-. Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (4)
3. Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino (3)
-. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (3)
5. Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda (2)

It’s still all to play for after Day 4 of the Ultimate Tag League. One team who had it in the bag are letting it slip while the team that looked to be out of it caught a second wind. While Kazusada Higuchi and Jun Akiyama took care of each other, Yukio Sakaguchi tried to hunt down Makoto Oishi. It got real bad for Oishi when Sakaguchi literally knocked his front teeth out (Oishi’s front teeth are all replacements)! But in a surprise, Oishi had his opponent scouted and countered his submission holds into the Fujiyama Knee Lock for the upset victory. Akiyama praised the Junrestu leader after the match. All of his front teeth are gone but he is still handsome enough to finish 4th in a Best Body Japan competition! Meanwhile Eruption are at risk of finishing outside of the top spot. They now need to beat DAMNATION on the last day for a chance to win the league.

It’s a sad end for The Iyasareru. After a great start, Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda quickly cooled off and lost the rest of their matches. Their schedule ended with a defeat to The 37KAMIINA. They had their opponents trapped in stereo Octopus Stretches but Konosuke Takeshita broke free from Brookes and Dropkicked Honda. Shunma Katsumata then used his leverage to roll over and apply a deep pin to Honda for the three count. The 37KAMIINA know they are in a difficult position to win the league on the final day. All they can do is figure out the right timing to use the MADMAX double team move so they can beat Junretsu.

Naomi Yoshimura beats Yuki Iino to prove he deserves to be in this year’s King Of DDT. Yoshimura said he will work his way to the top of the DNA generation. He also promised to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles next week.

Toui Kojima treated Match #4 as an audition to join The 37KAMIINA. He probably failed when a double team move backfired and Kojima hit Yuki Ueno by accident. That mistake gave Yusuke Okada the opening to win the match. Ueno tried to keep his attention on Akito but admits he couldn’t grasp his next challenger’s rhythm at all today. He also had his back taped up which irked Akito a bit. Akito said he was disappointed in Ueno’s performance today and a champion shouldn’t be showing off his bad condition like that. Akito doesn’t think he fought a champion today.

DAMNATION got by with some cheating to beat DISASTER BOX. When Tetsuya Endo had Yukio Naya in position for the Torture Rack Bomb, Kazuki Hirata ran in wanting to break the count. However Soma Takao stopped him in his tracks with a Low Blow, allowing Endo to hit his move on Naya for the finish. Takao added salt to the wounds backstage when he called Hirata a weak challenger for the 6-Man Tag Titles and he should be replaced. Soma thinks Hirata would be so weak of a champion he would make Yuki Ueno’s DDT UNIVERSAL Title run look better by comparison!

I have a very busy weekend coming up in real life so there will be a delay in posting results and reports for a few days.

The lone champion on the evening show is Hikari Noa. Her next opponent Marika Kobashi is on the day show so they are being kept apart for now.

Something to keep an eye on is YUMI’s Twitter account suddenly becoming active again. The former TJPW wrestler graduated from the company last July to focus on her education. This week she suddenly started tweeting daily, counting down the days “until the beginning of history”. The countdown ends this weekend but not exactly towards the TJPW shows. The reveal may turn out to be something other than a return to TJPW or even pro wrestling so we just have to wait and see.

11. GHC Heavyweight Title – Triple Main Event III: Keiji Muto (c) Vs Naomichi Marufuji

The contracts have been signed for the three championship matches. The match order was decided by measuring the career achievements of the three current champions. That means the GHC Heavyweight Title match will be the last match on the show, the KO-D Openweight Title match will be before the GHC match and the Princess Of Princess Title match will be before the KO-D match.

Super Sasadango Machine tried to invade the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall on Saturday to negotiate who he will fight at Saitama Super Arena. Unfortunately he doesn’t understand how wrestlers are able to crash other companies and couldn’t get past the entrance because he had no ticket for the show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Maki Itoh has a grand vision for 121000000. She wants herself and Miyu Yamashita to hold all the championships in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Yamashita can have the Princess Title, Itoh can get back the International Princess Title and they will also take one Princess Tag Team Title belt each. Now comes the tough job, beating NEO Biishiki-gun. They did it once before in February but NEO Biishiki-gun got their win back in the Max Heart Tournament final a month later. Time for the rubber match!

Now 20 years old, Marika Kobashi is challenging for her first singles title to prove she has grown up. There is some jealousy behind the move because she didn’t like seeing Hikari Noa win the IP Title before she did.

Ultimate Tag League 2021 Standings

1. Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (4)
2. Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino (3)
3. Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda (2)
-. Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi (2)
5. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (1)

Makoto Oishi makes up for Junretsu’s slow start by winning their first points in the league. Today’s win was special for him because Sendai is where his wife Misaki Oishi was born. Jun Akiyama said Oishi is the key to their team. They win when he is good, they lose when he is bad. Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino’s excuse for losing is they can’t beat the spirit of Mt. Fuji that Oishi drew his power from.

A reversal of fortunes saw Yukio Sakaguchi hurt his knees and tell his own story to pass the time. Things went back to normal when Antonio Honda ended up in the same position to use Gongitsune. His sneak attack accidentally hit Yukinori Matsui instead but at least that allowed The Iyasareru to cheat a little. Kazusada Higuchi and Chris Brookes intervened but the match came down to Sakaguchi and Honda. Sakaguchi countered the Diving Fist Drop by catching Honda into a Triangle Choke. With this submission win, Eruption is now in 1st place.

Local pride was on the line between MAO and Tetsuya Endo. Both are from the Miyagi region and wanted to be the hometown hero for this show, even though both of their actual hometowns are miles away from Sendai. Mad Paulie of all people came up with the idea to make the match No Tag rules. Sadly for him, he got pinned by MAO so MAO got to give the big speech afterwards to the fans.

Naomi Yoshimura and Yuki Iino were at each other’s throats during their tag match. They brawled around ringside even as the match reached its end. Iino charged at Yoshimura again afterwards and the two had to be kept apart.

Keigo Nakamura upgraded his Moonsault to use against standing opponents. He now calls that version the Michinoku Attack.
