5. Union MAX Title: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Ryota Nakatsu (c) with the Let’s Combine (28:15).
*Ryota Nakatsu fails in V6. Ryuichi Sekine becomes the 12th Union MAX Champion!

The two men that made up Cavalry fought each other today for the Union MAX Title and in a big result it was Ryuichi Sekine who came out on top! The match almost reached the half hour point when Sekine put all of his weight down on the Let’s Combine to make Ryota Nakatsu give up. Nakatsu admitted that Sekine was too strong for him and this was a complete victory for the new champion. Sekine thanked the fans for spending the last day of Golden Week at the BASARA show.

Minoru Fujita complained to Ikuto Hidaka before their match because Hidaka hasn’t grown a tail yet. He didn’t want to team with a tailless person.

There were plenty of new championships on show during the day. Fuminori Abe arrived with the UWA World Middleweight Title he won at K-DOJO last Thursday. Isami Kodaka brought the BJW Death Match Title he only just won in Big Japan yesterday.

Abe wanted to wrestle barefoot with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi to make it an even fight. He started screaming when Hiroshi sang during the match. Hiroshi tried to take advantage but his Scorpion Deathlock was countered into an Achilles Tendon Hold and then turned into a Cross Heel Hold to make Hiroshi tap out.

DDT “LAST HEISEI, FIRST REIWA PRO WRESTLING”, 30/04/2019
Tokyo DDT Pro Wrestling Ochanomizu Dojo
0 Fans

1. Special 10-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Fuminori Abe, Ken Ohka & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Tetsuya Endo, Antonio Honda, Ryota Nakatsu, Shuichiro Katsumura & Miyu Yamashita when Takeshita pinned Honda with the Fable (18:28).

DDT wanted to celebrate the end of Japan’s Heisei era and the beginning of the Reiwa era so they brought together the best of the best to their new dojo in Ochanomizu. The plan was to do a special 10-Man Tag match that started before the clock struck midnight and ended in the early hours of the morning. On one side was the team of champions from each brand in the DDT family. We had the KO-D Openweight Champion Tetsuya Endo and DDT Extreme Champion Antonio Honda representing DDT. BASARA was represented by the Union MAX Champion Ryota Nakatsu. The Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Shuichiro Katsumura represented Ganbare☆Wrestling and the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion Miyu Yamashita was there for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The other team was made up of established non-champions from the same brands. There was Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA for DDT, Fuminori Abe for BASARA, Ken Ohka for Ganpro and finally Yuka Sakazaki for Tokyo Joshi.

Before the match began the champion team posed for a group photo, which annoyed their opponents. Honda quickly tripped on the ropes and injured his leg. He was about to declare his retirement due to injury but first wanted to tell his story of Gongitsune. It was all a ruse for Honda to poke everyone on the other team in the eyes. When the match got going we got plenty of unusual pairings like Endo against Sakazaki, Yamashita against Ohka and Nakatsu against Takeshita. The ending came when Abe stopped Honda’s Diving Fist Drop with a Rabbit Punch. Ohka hit Honda with the Fire Spear, Sakazaki landed the Magical Girl Splash and HARASHIMA followed up with a Swan Dive Body Press. With Honda all but out, Takeshita finished him off with the Fable to win the last match of Heisei and the first match of Reiwa!

Endo didn’t want to stick around afterwards and quickly left the ring when the match was over. The rest stayed behind and gave out thank you messages of support to the audience watching on DDT UNIVERSE.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING
254 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Takumi Tsukamoto, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Yasu Urano defeated Takato Nakano, Masato Kamino & Jun Masaoka when Hiroshi submitted Nakano with the Scorpion Deathlock (8:53).
2. Aiseki Tag Vs Turnabout Pro Wrestling Trial Combination!: Fuminori Abe & Ikuto Hidaka defeated Gouma Ryu & Banana Senga when Hidaka pinned Ryu with the Stray Dog High Kick (12:15).
3. Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Daiki Shimomura & Tsutomu Oosugi when Tanizaki pinned Shimomura with the Implant Bomb (9:15).
4. Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles – 3 Way Match: Abdullah Kobayashi, Hideki Suzuki & Yoshihisa Uto defeated Isami Kodaka, Minoru Fujita & Ryuichi Sekine (c) and FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT when Kobayashi pinned SAGAT after the Osu! (15:45).
*Sento Minzoku fails in V1. Kobayashi Gundan becomes the 31st Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Champions!
5. Union MAX Title: Ryota Nakatsu (c) defeated Best Stretchman V3 with the V Slider (14:42).
*V5 for Ryota Nakatsu.

At the start of the show Best Stretchman V3 was accompanied by Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga instead of the other Best Stretchmen. This made V3 fear that his Best Stretch friends had died and he must fight for the Union MAX Title on his own. However they did appear with him when it was time for the main event, all carrying YMZ towels. V3’s hood was pulled down by Ryota Nakatsu during the match, turning him back into Daichi Kazato for a while. But he eventually put a new hood on and became Best Stretchman again. It was all for naught though since Nakatsu kicked out of the Best Stretch Bomber, hit some German Suplexes and pinned the challenger with the V Slider.

Nakatsu said he was happy to have chosen Best Stretchman for this match and he was also happy to get a glimpse of Kazato during it too. With 5 title defences achieved, Nakatsu has now matched the record for most defences with Isami Kodaka. His next challenger turns out to be Ryuichi Sekine. He came out with Sento Minzoku asking for a title shot on 6th May.

The Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles match was chaotic as three teams battled each other over the belts. Sento Minzoku and The Iron Family tired each other out and Kobayashi Gundan took advantage. They were able to isolate SAGAT and beat him down. SAGAT was able to kick out of the Bakachinga Elbow from Abdullah Kobayashi. Pressure continued to be put on him and he was eventually put down with the Osu! That is a double Power Bomb from Hideki Suzuki & Yoshihisa Uto. Kobayashi said he is glad his team were able to reclaim their championship in BASARA. This place is so good to them they see it as home.

BASARA will get to host one of the shows during this year’s Beer Garden week in August. Their day is happening on 3rd August. The summer of DOVE x BASARA will also be returning for that show.

6. Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Isami Kodaka, Minoru Fujita & Ryuichi Sekine defeated FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT (c) when Sekine submitted Kubo with the Let’s Combine (14:48).
*The Iron Family fails in V1. Sento Minzoku becomes the 30th Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

What on Earth happened here? A week ago The Iron Family win the Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles and today in their first defence they lose the belts to Sento Minzoku! A win looked certain when FUMA stopped Ryuichi Sekine from doing the Let’s Combine on Yusuke Kubo. FUMA hit Sekine with a High Kick to the head, SAGAT did the Crucifixion Of Death and Kubo applied the Death Metal Roll. Luckily for Sekine, Isami Kodaka and Minoru Fujita were there to break the pin. Kubo went for the Goro Suplex several times but Sekine was able to avoid it and catch Kubo in the Let’s Combine for the unexpected submission victory!

FUMA demanded a rematch and encouraged the crowd to agree with him. However his appeal was cut off by a voice saying that they are owed a rematch first. The voice was coming from Abdullah Kobayashi and he was accompanied by Yoshihisa Uto & Hideki Suzuki! The previous champions came here today to get their titles back. Kodaka talked down to Uto by only recognising him as the wrestler he beat in Big Japan yesterday. He saw the mess this situation was becoming and came up with an idea to do a 3 Way Trios title match next month between Sento Minzoku, The Iron Family and the Kobayashi Gundan. The other teams agreed and left, allowing Kodaka to give attention to Sekine for winning the match.

The encounters between Ryota Nakatsu and Best Stretchman V3 in the semi-main event fired up V3. His hood was accidentally removed when he escaped from the V Slider and V3 was left vulnerable to a High Kick as he tried to fix it. V3 ignored his costume malfunction to continue fighting but he was put away with the V Slider. V3 had a bloody nose but he demanded a Union MAX Title shot against Nakatsu for next month. Nakatsu was confused by the challenge because he just beat him but he also sensed a fire burning inside of V3 when they fought so he accepted. V3 then said that BSM stands for something other than Best Stretchman. For this match the B stands for Best, the S stands for Sparky and the M stands for the wrestler that came from Union Pro who will become the next Union Max Champion! Yeah, nobody really understands why he thinks the M stands for that…

A recent online situation involving Manami Toyota and Bea Priestley revealed that Toyota has given permission to only two people for using her Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex: Tsukasa Fujimoto and Ikuto Hidaka. Today Hidaka used the move to win his tag match when Fuminori Abe reminded him he has Toyota’s blessing to do it.

The 2trap is Jun Masaoka’s version of the Tornado Clutch. When he beat Daiki Shimomura he pointed over to Kodaka, implying he wants to fight him next.

Akiyori Takizawa was put in court for a very dangerous crime in Japan, possession of cocaine! The prosecutor Banana Senga wanted to cite Pierre Taki as reference for the case but everyone cut him off because they didn’t want to get into any trouble. The referee was asked to give Takizawa a physical examination and he discovered white powder hidden in Takizawa’s kneepad. The defence lawyer Gouma Ryu identified the powder as just ordinary salt that Takizawa likes to use on his boiled eggs. However more white powder was found so Ryota Nakatsu and Naoki Tanizaki were called in as witnesses. Senga told everyone that the eye blacks seen on the Sparky wrestlers’ faces was actually signs of drug addiction! The topic of ASUKA PROJECT closing down was then brought up which caused Ryu and Senga to join forces and attack Takizawa. He fought both of them off to prove his innocence, pinning the two with a Choke Slam and Reverse DDT combo.
