DDT’s biggest rivalry was back in force for the main event of the D-King Grand Prix Day 2. Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo faced off in the rematch to last year’s “RYOGOKU PETER PAN” main event. Takeshita already got off to a bad start after losing his first block match while Endo won his first bout. Neither man got the spoils as the match went to a 30 minute time limit. It is a result both are familiar with when it comes to their singles matches. Endo left the ring after a brief standoff. Takeshita apologised to the fans for failing to beat Endo for them. He then said their battle is not over.

Daisuke Sasaki slumps even further into the depths with his second Grand Prix loss in a row. Yukio Sakaguchi hit him with the Right Knee Of God then put him down with the Cobra Clutch. The win places Sakaguchi on top of Block B for the early going. Sakaguchi’s next goal is to survive against Shuji Ishikawa. Get past him and it will be clear sailing from there. Sasaki is now getting desperate. His current plan for his next opponent Kazusada Higuchi is to hit him with a beer bottle.

The Grand Prix is off to a beautiful start thanks to Jiro Kuroshio. His win over Masahiro Takanashi means he currently sits on top of Block A. Once again his tricky style caught his opponent off guard for an unexpected pinfall. He promises to show HARASHIMA a Handsome World when their match happens next. Takanashi is 0 for 2. He promises to win his 4 remaining matches.

Mike Bailey scraped by with a win against Akito. Speedball’s legs were targeted throughout the match and he was in real danger of losing to the Scorpion Lock. But somehow Bailey fought so hard to block the move he rolled himself on top of Akito to pin him. Bailey said he has to keep winning so he can catch up with Ishikawa. He also thinks the middle portion of the tournament will determine where he finishes. It won’t be easy but he needs to imagine he can win it all. Akito meanwhile is worried that his usual losing pattern is surfacing again. But he can’t focus on that because tomorrow’s opponent is Ishikawa!

What is the best way to take on the Somato? Joey Ryan unsprisingly thought it was with his dong. He tried his own version of the move on HARASHIMA, hitting him crotch first in the face. It didn’t work. HARASHIMA then took control and hit the proper Somato, putting Ryan down for the count. This was HARASHIMA’s first match with Ryan and he was left puzzled by the experience. When Ryan regained his whereabouts during the backstage interview he described HARASHIMA as a “very tough bastard” who survived Ryan’s many traps. Ryan promises to set up more traps for his next opponent Takeshita. He also hopes the fans shower him with paper tape before the match. He likes it when they do that.

Kazusada Higuchi scored his first points with a win over Soma Takao. He countered the Gin And Tonic into a Power Bomb. From there he hit a Lariat and the Doctor Bomb for the three count. This was Soma’s first match in the Grand Prix and a defeat is not a good start. His next opponent is Mike Bailey and Soma is worried about facing him with the momentum he has.

Keisuke Ishii has a new finishing move called the Carolina Reaper. The move is a Modified Facelock where he traps one arm in a Chicken Wing and the other gets hooked behind his leg. He used it to submit Kouki Iwasaki in the 4 Way Match. Elsewhere in the match Toru Owashichallenged Naomi Yoshimura to try and beat him in their exchanges.

To celebrate the new year in Osaka, Danshoku Dino told the audience a dancing star from Tokyo has come over to cheer everyone up with his performance. He was talking about Kazuki Hirata. Normally whenever Hirata tries to dance during his entrance he gets interrupted so Dino ordered Yuki Ueno to help him stop anyone from laying a finger on Hirata while he dances. They succeeded although Dino did take a Plancha from MAO during the performance. However Hirata got angry and yelled at everyone to give the audience an exciting match. As it went on Ueno asked Hirata to tag him in so he could show off cool moves to his hometown crowd. Dino later got too excited and gave Ueno the Lip Lock even though they were on the same team. That allowed NωA and Veda Scott to isolate Hirata and beat him. When the match was over Hirata asked the audience if they enjoyed it. They gave him a positive applause.

Yukinori Matsui announced he will produce a wrestling show inside Osaka Edison Arena #2 on 27th May. He called upon the DDT wrestlers to help him make it a lively show.

6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Veda Scott with the Crash Rabbit Heat (12:28).
*V1 for Miyu Yamashita.

Three days after she won the TOKYO Princess Title for the second time, Miyu Yamashita marked her first defence of the reign. Veda Scott targeted Yamashita’s right leg until she could land the Back Drop. But Yamashita kicked out and her leg was in good enough condition to kick her way to victory. Yamashita admitted she put herself in a dangerous position to take the match so soon after her title win but she proved she has enough power to defend the belt in these situations. She is a champion so she must defeat her opponents anytime, anywhere and against anyone.

An odd stipulation was added to the Syoko Nakajima Vs Hyper Misao match. If either girl spoke English during the match they would have to drink a glass of apple cider vinegar. Nakajima quickly fell in a trap when Misao put her in a hold and Nakajima grabbed the ropes and shouted “Break!” After she took a drink she asked in Japanese why did Misao create this rule. When Misao wouldn’t answer, Nakajima grabbed her hair until Misao shouted “Hair!” in English. More English words were said and they drank more glasses of vinegar until the finish of the match.

Yuka Sakazaki rolled up Nodoka-oneesan inside one of the floor mats outside the ring. She then climbed the top ropes and dropped onto Nodoka. Nodoka later did the same to Sakazaki.

The teams were switched around for the second Up Up Girls match but the result was the same as the first time. Miu submitted Hikari with the Canadian Backbreaker.

*V2 for Miraclians (17:46).
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita defeated Reika Saiki (c) with the Crash Rabbit Heat (14:58).
*Reika Saiki fails in V3. Miyu Yamashita becomes the 5th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

 

Two years ago Miyu Yamashita became the first TOKYO Princess Champion in Korakuen Hall. Today she repeated history by winning the championship for the second time in the same building. She had a back and forth battle with the champion Reika Saiki. Yamashita missed the Crash Rabbit Heat and was in trouble after Saiki hit her with the Shining Wizard. But Yamashita avoided the Jackhammer and stunned Saiki with High Kicks, a Running Knee Strike and a Buzzsaw Kick. Finally Yamashita hit the Crash Rabbit Heat and that was enough to crown her as the new champion. Yamashita praised Saiki afterwards and talked about how she won the title in Korakuen last August. They also teamed together as the Muscle Strikers in a tag tournament. As long as Saiki continues to climb into the ring Yamashita will consider her a tag partner, a friend and her strongest rival.

But Yamashita isn’t finished yet. She won back the Princess Title but doesn’t consider herself a proper champion until she successfully defends it. Veda Scott suddenly entered the ring to demand a title shot but Yamashita doesn’t understand English. Yuki Kamifuku translated Scott’s comments for her. Scott apologised to Yamashita for only being the champion for three days because Scott wants a title match on 7th January in Osaka! Yamashita accepted the challenge because she will take any opportunity to raise the stock of Tokyo Joshi Pro anytime, anywhere!

The Miraclians overcame a tough challenge from Mizuki & Riho to stay as the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Champions. Both Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima hit stereo 619s to the challengers leading to the Magical Girl Splash finish. The champions spoke of how much fun they just had and the win means they now “conquered” Thailand. After they asked if there were any other teams ready to challenge them, NEO Biishiki-gun appeared. The Apricots assumed there was about to be a challenge thrown out but Saki-sama said that wasn’t the case. Saki is not going to lower herself to challenge a team that is below her. Even if the Apricots are the champions Saki still thinks she would degrade herself if she challenged them. Instead she was here to inform them that she will wait for them to challenge her & Azusa Christie instead. No problem. The champions just conquered Thailand. It seems that next on their list is France!

The Super Milk Combination couldn’t beat NEO Biishiki-gun even with the presence of Haruka Nishimoto in their corner to motivate them. Nonoko burst into tears after the match and Nishimoto tried to console her. She said Nonoko shouldn’t cry because she has the strongest breasts! Nonoko cheered up and said she would do her best.

Maki Ito had a lot on her mind going into today’s show. Her new CD was released and according to her it already sells spectacularly. However she complained to Tetsuya Koda because there were no promotional videos made to market it. Koda complained that they don’t have the marketing budget to make one. He calmed Ito down and told her to focus on selling 200 copies first, then she had to go out and fight Danshoku Dino. Ito took a beating from Dino but she had a secret weapon that Dino didn’t expect. The Lip Lock! The move made Dino faint but he had enough energy to kick out at two. Another Lip Lock followed by a Missile Dropkick brought Ito close to winning again but Dino recovered and gave Ito two Brainbusters. Ito kicked out of the pin afterwards but was beaten with the Screw Danshoku Driver afterwards. Dino encouraged Ito to stand up under her own strength after the match. Ito said it hurt to move but the match she just lost is in the past. The Ito that lost in the past is not the same Ito that is here in the moment right now. She yelled that she will not give up and rallied the fans to cheer for her. She then sang/shouted the lyrics to “Ultra Soul” as she left the ring.

Veda Scott offered to give vegetables to Maho Kurone before their match because she is a vegetarian. Kurone quickly slapped the vegetables out of Scott’s hand and chased her around ringside. Scott later avoided the Ouroboros and pinned Kurone with a Back Drop.

Hyper Misao called the other team in the opener a “a group of outrageous villains”. She called her own team “three people with true bonds seeking love.” That seemed questionable when Misao, Rika Tatsumi & Yuki Kamifuku all picked on Nodoka-oneesan during the match. Yuu & Marika Kobashi came to the rescue and Yuu submitted Misao to win.

The Up Up Girls debut match opened the show. Hinano did Elbow Strikes, Raku did Brain Chops and Hikari did Dropkicks. Miu was the strongest of the four and used moves like a Bearhug and a Canadian Backbreaker to win the match for her and Hinano. Miu said in the post-match interview ther her goal is to win a championship. Hinano said if the Up Up Girls idol group can perform in Budokan Hall then so can the Up Up Girls wrestling group! Raku hopes she will make up for the loss at her next match in Osaka. Hikari knows that pro wrestling is a tough world and next time she wants to win. The idol group was in attendance to take a photo with the wrestling group later in the show.

7. Road To D-King GP Special 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Kazusada Higuchi & Jiro Kuroshio defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Mike Bailey & Shuji Ishikawa when HARASHIMA pinned Bailey with the Somato (20:17).

With the D-King Grand Prix just days away from starting, six of the participants took part in the 6-Man Tag Team main event of 2018’s first DDT show. Jiro Kuroshio is already testing the patience of some wrestlers with his long entrance that this time involved the unwilling participation of a small child. Konosuke Takeshita in particular made Kuroshio his target in the match. Elsewhere Shuji Ishikawa and Kazusada Higuchi squared off in a power battle while HARASHIMA had his hands full with Mike Bailey. It all built up to unlikely team moves like Takeshita doing a Codebreaker on HARASHIMA then holding him down for a Body Press from Ishikawa followed by the Standing Double Knee Moonsault from Bailey. However, HARASHIMA avoided the Ultima Weapon from Bailey and pinned him with two Somatos.

HARASHIMA was about to give his victory speech when Kuroshio grabbed the microphone and gave his own speech. He said he was happy to be in the tournament and is looking forward to beating up Takeshita even more. Higuchi threatened to rampage his way through the block to the final. He is happy to see that Ishikawa is even stronger than ever and looks forward to fighting him. Ishikawa asked if Higuchu knows how many championships he has won? Ishikawa guarantees he will win the GP because he is at his best. Bailey said the Somato he took made him understand his wrestling career could end at any moment. But if it does end it will be when Bailey fights HARASHIMA in the final. Takeshita told Kuroshio he will make his handsome face look awkward when they fight again. HARASHIMA said he will win the league and headline Sumo Hall. As usual. He tried to close out the show but Kuroshio stole all the attention again by posing in front of him.

Daisuke Sasaki is sick of Antonio Honda telling his “Gon, The Little Fox” stories. He told Honda his goal for 2018 should be to give up telling them. Colt Cabana backed up Honda by going along with his story and joining in with his antics. They performed the Superman Dive together for a double nearfall. But it all went wrong when a double Bionic Elbow ended with them hitting each other. Tetsuya Endo took advantage with the Springboard Overhead Kick and then won the match with the Shooting Star Press on Honda.

After the match Cabana was attacked by Nobuhiro Shimatani because he wanted to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Cabana fought him off but then Super Sasadango Machine came in and pinned Cabana with a Cross Body Block. Cabana tried to win the title back at the end of the show but failed.

The NωA had to fight for their lives against Danshoku Dino and the Brahman Brothers. They were told by the brothers before the match that they would fall into Hell! What followed was a brawl between both sides that moved into the audience. The Brahmans took out a mixer and blended together a liquid made out of beer, boiled egg, natto and raw squid. They considered throwing it into the audience but they poured it over Yuki Ueno instead. NωA turned the tables and used the Brahmans’ own tricks against them including throwing the bowling ball and suitcase at them and spitting the black India Ink at their faces. They then attacked Dino with a piece of wood up the backside and pinned him with the Triple Ecstasy. The NωA are now allowed to break up and their final match will take place on 28th January. They asked for T2Hide to be their final opponents. All of T2Hide came down to the ring crying with happiness over being chosen.

In the second D-King GP preview of the night, Soma Takao beat Masahiro Takanashi. He countered the Takatonic into the Endless Waltz series of rolling pin attempts, constantly rolling Takanashi into another pin until he finally got the three count. Takao thinks the move will help him immensely in the tournament. Just using today’s match as an example, the Endless Waltz got Takao a total of 10 pin counts, that’s enough for three wins. Takao hopes the Endless Waltz along with the Gin And Tonic will help him win both the Grand Prix in January and also All Japan’s Junior Heavyweight league in February.

Two years ago a calligrapher named Nachu was invited over to DDT to paint Kakizome new year messages on the backs of the wrestlers. She came back this year so it could be done again. The rule of the Battle Royal was every wrestler had a “Prohibited Skill” painted on their back. If the wrestler performed the skill during the match they would be disqualified. But since it was painted on their backs they did not know what their banned skill was. So the wrestlers all tried to bait each other into doing their prohibited moves. One of the entrants was Joey Axl, a pro wrestler from Australia. He appeared during the show opening ceremony unbeknown to the rest of the roster. It was only when Hisaya Imabayashi noticed him standing next to the other foreign wrestlers that he introduced himself and asked to wrestle in DDT. It was decided he would be added to the Battle Royal.

Sadly for Axl he was the first one eliminated. His prohibited skill was speaking Japanese and he was tricked into saying “Ichiban!” after he overpowered his opponents. Nobuhiro Shimatani was out when he climbed the turnbuckle to do a high flying attack. Tomomitsu Matsunaga was not allowed to say his name in the manner of the RVD/Toru Yano taunt that he likes to do. He teased doing it first but later did it for real to get eliminated. Joey Ryan was tricked into speaking English when Gorgeous Matsuno told him he had a small dick. Sanshiro Takagi was out after he gave Gota Ihashi a Stunner. Matsuno wasn’t allowed to do his Gorgeous Star☆Elbow. It took him several attempts to do the move because he kept getting tangled into the ropes mid-move. He finally did it with Keisuke Ishii’s help but that meant he was now out of the match. Ihashi did his Moonsault but he wasn’t supposed to. He also missed. Super Sasadango Machine eliminated Mad Paulie by making him laugh. Sasadango unmasked himself to show he was wearing similar facepaint as Paulie. It made Paulie so happy that he laughed. Finally Sasadango eliminated himself by doing a Cross Body to Ishii. Ishii was declared the winner because he avoided doing his prohibited skill, performing a combination attack with another wrestler.

The Infomercial Match was supposed to begin with a trailer for the upcoming movie LADY NINJA: A Blue Shadow which features Yukio Sakaguchi and Saki Akai in supporting roles. However Kazuki Hirata stopped the trailer because he wanted to dance with the movie’s lead star Mai Hakase instead. Hakase appeared with Shuten-dōji wearing her movie character’s costume. Sakaguchi got so mad at Hirata for his behaviour that Toru Owashi & Veda Scott bailed from the apron and left Hirata alone in the ring with him to get beaten up. Later in the match Hirata challenged Hakase to a duel. Hakase pulled out her prop sword and looked to have bested Hirata until he knocked her out with a sudden karate chop. Sakaguchi stole the Hirata Go! glasses and danced his way into beating up Hirata again to win the match. With Hirata defeated, the movie trailer was allowed to be shown. Afterwards Hakase, Sakaguchi and Akai spoke about their experiences during the making of the movie. Hakane said that she was afraid of Sakaguchi when they first met and she wanted to run away when it was time for them to film their fight scene. But he was able to work with her shyness and it turned out fine. She also said Akai was really strong when they filmed their scenes together. Next time she’d like to see her get a role as a sexy ninja.

Akito’s tune up match for the GP was against the rookie Yuki Ueno. While it wasn’t a big challenge for Akito, he felt it was a good way to prepare for the tournament. He was also nicely surprised by how well Ueno wrestled in the match. He’s pleased to see the younger wrestlers in DDT growing up in the ring and thinks he can teach them stuff that other wrestlers in the company cannot.

The wrestlers in the pre-show match all yelled “Happy New Year!” mid-move to each other at some point. Rekka & Hoshitango worked well together and did a lot of damage to Daiki Shimomura. Their big move involved Rekka climbing onto Hoshitango’s back then Hoshitango doing a Splash onto Shimomura with Rekka still on top of him. Mizuki Watase stopped the pin but once they got rid of him it was easy pickings for Rekka to finish off Shimomura.

It was announced that The Great Muta will appear at “JUDGEMENT 2018” in Sumo Hall on 25th March!


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6” Results

October 30, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6”, 29/10/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Maho Kurone defeated Marika Kobashi with the Ouroboros (5:56).
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Mizuki pinned Kamifuku with a Double Stomp (8:27).
3. Saki-sama defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Modified Foot Choke (7:15).
4. Nonoko defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Pai Fly Flow (10:24).
5. Rika Tatsumi, Yuka Sakazaki & Yuu defeated Reika Saiki, Miyu Yamashita & Azusa Takigawa when Tatsumi pinned Sakazaki with the Missile Hips (14:12).

Rika Tatsumi was feeling nervous about today’s main event but she now has plenty to be pleased about. She scored the pinfall to win the match for her team. She knows she is able to win matches but after today’s victory she is now in a new world of possibility. That includes a possible match with Reika Saiki for the TOKYO Princess Title. She had a face off with the champion at the end of the show so she definitely has Saiki’s attention.

Nonoko is getting her groove back. Now that her time in Konkatsu-gun is behind her, Nonoko is winning matches again. Today she scored a big victory over Shoko Nakajima. Now she thinks she is deserving of a championship match. Nakajima is willing to give her a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Title match but Nonoko needs to find a tag partner. Nonoko revealed that she already has one, it’s her former rival Yuna Manase! When those two were feuding they discovered they were similar after all and could make a good team together. They already have a team name, they are the Super Milk Combination and they get their title match on 23rd November!

Now that she is on her own, Saki-sama is stirring up trouble between other girls in the roster. After beating Nodoka-oneesan, Saki wondered out loud who is the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi Pro, Nodoka or Azusa Takigawa. Saki wants the two of them to face off at the next show to find out the answer. Takigawa realises she loses a lot but she doesn’t like admitting it. Nodoka doesn’t want to lose at all especially against Takigawa. Saki is looking forward to seeing the low level match when it happens.

The Ito Respect Army called upon their “manager” Tetsuya Koda to solve their latest problem. Maki Ito has gone without proper entrance music for months now and is wondering how come Koda hasn’t done anything about it yet. Koda complained that he shouldn’t be part of the Ito Respect Army because he doesn’t respect anything! He only wears the Manager t-shirt because Ito forces him to. However he realises that Ito puts her trust in him and a good person does not betray that trust, so he will accept the Manager role. Koda was then surprised to learn that Ito will be releasing a new music CD on 4th January anyway.

American wrestler Veda Scott will be at the “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’18” show in Korakuen Hall on 4th January. She is a former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion and has been given the nickname “Eyeglass Wrestler” by Tokyo Joshi. She will also be wrestling at the Osaka show on 7th January.
