DDT “SHUSSE DAIMYO DRAMATIC KUN 2019” Results

September 21, 2019

DDT “SHUSSE DAIMYO DRAMATIC KUN 2019”, 21/09/2019
Shizuoka Create Hamamatsu Hall
177 Fans

1. Akito defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the IV Knee Lock (8:59).
2. Soma Takao & Mad Paulie defeated Yukio Sakaguchi & Yukio Naya when Paulie pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash.
3. Antonio Honda defeated Mizuki Watase with a School Boy (8:49).
4. Lucha Libre Rules: Toru Owashi & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Shunma Katsumata and MAO when Owashi pinned MAO with La Magistral Cradle (10:39).
5. 3 Way Match: Asuka defeated Konosuke Takeshita and Kazuki Hirata when Asuka pinned Hirata with a Swinging Choke Slam (11:36).
6. Shizuoka Hero, Makoto Oishi Triumph!: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi when Endo submitted Oishi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (13:35).

Makoto Oishi’s local return was spoiled by Tetsuya Endo’s Yurikamome Hold. Afterwards Endo mocked HARASHIMA’s usual post-match promos, predicting that HARASHIMA will blame a DAMNATION ambush that happened before the bell. Endo said it is just another week of HARASHIMA thinking of excuses for losing to him. Daisuke Sasaki interrupted Endo’s promo to ask if anyone knew the result of the New Zealand Vs South Africa match happening in the Rugby World Cup. He then said he doesn’t care about rugby.

The 3 Way match mostly focused on Konosuke Takeshita and Asuka which made Kazuki Hirata feel like the awkward third wheel. Asuka got rid of Takeshita with a German Suplex and won with a Swinging Choke Slam on Hirata. Takeshita told Asuka afterwards that their first match together was a tag with four in it, then today was a 3 Way. All that is left is them to fight one on one and he is looking forward to it.

The planned Daisuke Kiso Marunage match was postponed and will be held on a future show. Toru Owashi asked for the match to be a Lucha Libre Rules tag match instead. Shunma Katsumata and MAO both declined but Kiso granted it. Owashi got the pin but admitted that Naomi Yoshimura did most of the work. Yoshimura asked everyone to support their kind of lucha.

Yukio Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee but Soma Takao dodged it and Yukio Naya took the hit instead. Mad Paulie took advantage and pinned Naya with the Reverse Splash.

Things are a little awkward in the Iron Family now that FUMA has sided with Dove Pro for the summer series against BASARA. His relationship with Yusuke Kubo in particular looks like it could get strained. A few of the unit members have put together a match between themselves in order to get FUMA & Kubo on the same page again.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION MEMORIES 2019”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

8. DDT Extreme Title: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki was so drunk by the end of Beer Garden week that he has no memory of how he got a DDT Extreme Title match with Jiro Kuroshio. He remembers eating watermelon and also Kuroshio’s wonderful hair but that’s it. Kuroshio says this is a match that nobody should laugh at. In fact Kuroshio Vs Sasaki is a match he thinks fans want to see. He also didn’t know that he gets to make the stipulation. So he hasn’t thought of one yet but promises it will be something serious.

So Konosuke Takeshita’s summer challenge before Shinya Aoki is an 8-Man Tag with Santino Marella involved. Didn’t see that coming.

DDT “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2019”, 01/09/2019
Osaka Edion Arena #2

1. DD Army Vs ALL OUT!: Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata
2. O-40 Title: Sanshiro Takagi (c) Vs Ken Ohka
3. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Kuroshio is acting like he is Kazusada Higuchi’s little brother so they can challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Higuchi is happy to go along with it and promises to win the belt for their family. They’re not related by blood but if they win then it is proof that they are real brothers. If they do become the champions Kuroshio wants to defend the belts against The Brahman Brothers. In response to this, Sasaki is making fun of the situation by saying he is Higuchi’s dad. Higuchi points out that Sasaki is only three years older than him. Sasaki fired back by saying he was only three years old when he was with Higuchi’s mother. Sasaki was still drunk when he said this but how much of that is an excuse, I don’t know. Kuroshio made the argument even more confusing by saying his and Kazusada’s father is a 56 year old man named Jiro Higuchi.

Yay, Shuji Ishikawa is back again!

Who’s idea was it to team up Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto!?!
