5. YaroZ Specialty! Boob Flag Death Match: Yuna Manase defeated Antonio Honda and Ryuichi Sekine when Manase picked up the flag (11:09).
6. YaroZ Vs Mote Mote Army All Out Fight!: Kazusada Higuchi, Toru Owashi & SAGAT defeated Akito, Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno when Higuchi pinned Ueno with the YaroZ Bomber (11:03).

The stories from this show were similar to the ones from previous few YaroZ events. The Mote Mote Army kidnapped the guest idol Karin Tachibana and held her hostage during the main event. The YaroZ team led by Kazusada Higuchi came to the rescue and defeated their enemy to rescue her. The new bit this time involved Makoto Oishi refusing to let go of Tachibana. This led to his wife Misaki Ohata to come out and give him a German Suplex. She ordered Oishi to free Tachibana then attached a leash to him as punishment. The YaroZ invited Tachibana to hang out with them after the show but she turned them down. She has to go shoot a video in Hawaii. Also Akito is more her type. Suddenly Nonoko ran down to the ring. If the YaroZ are looking for a pretty girl to be with, she’s available. None of them gave her a response.

Yuna Manase played a vital role in the Boob Flag Death Match. She had to stand in the corner with a mini flag sticking out of her chest while Antonio Honda and Ryuichi Sekine fought over who could pull it out first. Honda blinded Sekine with the Shining Gongitsune but couldn’t build up the courage to reach towards Manase’s chest. Sekine meanwhile couldn’t see and he walked into Yuki Iino. He grabbed Iino’s chest thinking it was Manase. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi grabbed the flag from Manase and handed it to Honda but the referee was too distracted to see it. Manase gave a Lariat to both Honda and Sekine. When picked up the flag from the mat, the referee saw it and declared Manase the winner.

Karin Tachibana did the other usual role for idols in YaroZ shows and that’s being the ring girl for the rounds match. She was fully dressed at the start and stripped off an item of clothing after every round. All the wrestlers encouraged the match to go as long as possible but Gorgeous Matsuno was just getting destroyed by Tatsuhito Takaiwa. Referee Yukinori Matsui tried everything he could to keep the match going so Tachibana’s striptease could continue. But when Takaiawa hit the Death Valley Driver, the other referee Yuya Okada ran in and counted three. Matsui was so angry that he wrestled Okada after the match. Tachibana stopped the madness by stripping down to her swimsuit. That was when the Mote Mote Army showed up and kidnapped her. The YaroZ wanted to rescue Tachibana straight away but they all couldn’t move because of their erections from the striptease.

Yumehito Imanari used his referee status to get very close to the action between Yuna Manase and Himeka Arita. He was more interested in getting pervy angles on their wrestling holds rather than calling the match. Manase and Arita got sick of his behaviour and both attacked him. Nonoko also showed up to join in and the match was called off. Nonoko had another reason for showing up today. She wanted to know why Imanari was messing around in DDT instead of achieving his dream of becoming a movie director. Imanari admitted he gave that dream up long ago because he was chasing deadlines every day. Nonoko asked Imanari what he has learned from wrestling. He should know that wrestling matches only end when you give up. Nonoko called Imanari talented with many people supporting him including herself, Manase and Arita. Imanari then had a brainflash. He can make a Charlie’s Angels kind of movie with the three women in front of him! Feeling like himself again, Imanari got the audience to cheer “3, 2, 1, Oppai Oppai!” That caused the women to attack him again.

The Fundoshi match immediately turned into a ringside brawl where both teams were counted out. Everyone agreed to restart the bout as a Scramble Bunkhouse Death Match but they needed a weapon. They decided on using plates of curry because of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s connection to India. Hiroshi accidentally hit Yuki Iino in the face with the curry. Abdullah Kobayashi hit the Bakachinga Elbow on Iino. Sanshiro Takagi then sat on Iino’s face to pin him.

There were plenty of cheers for Gota Ihashi and nothing but boos for Konosuke Takeshita in the opener. That’s what Takeshita gets for being an ikemen wrestler at a YaroZ show. Takeshita rolled away from a Moonsault and gave Ihashi a Brainbuster. He then placed his feet on the ropes for leverage while pinning Ihashi to win the match.

They also don’t know what messages Dieno will write on them so it’s probably best for fans to clearly request what they want him to say.

Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizara are the two men joining Ryota Nakatsu for his new unit. The Nakatsu Gundan will hit the ground running by going against the Iron Family for their first show together.

I think this is the first time a Tenkaichi tournament match will be held outside of ZERO1. It’s normal for the tournament’s opening round to consist of only a handful of matches while the majority of entrants join in at Round 2. Ikuto Hidaka has a long history with Tenkaichi, winning it three times. Fuminori Abe is entering for the first time and will be in the unique position of having the home field advantage in the opening match.

DDT “SOKEN HOLDINGS PRESENTS DDT SPECIAL 2018”, 25/11/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
DDT Dramatic General Election Ranking In Parentheses

0. Under Match: Mizuki Watase (#21) & Yuki Ueno (#24) Vs Gota Ihashi (#22) & Makoto Oishi (#23)
1. 3 Way Match: Antonio Honda (#12) Vs Saki Akai (#14) Vs Toru Owashi (#19)
2. KUDO (#15), Shunma Katsumata (#16) & Kazusada Higuchi (#17) Vs Dezmond Xavier, Zachary Wentz & Trey Miguel
3. Tetsuya Endo (#6) & Soma Takao (#8) Vs Keisuke Ishii (#10) & Yumehito Imanari (#11)
4. DISASTER BOX Vs STRONG HEARTS: HARASHIMA (#4) & Kazuki Hirata (#18) Vs CIMA & El Lindaman
5. DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: MAO (#9) Vs Jun Kasai (#20)
6. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Maki Ito (#3) (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita (#13)
7. DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Akito (#2) Vs Danshoku Dieno (#7)
8. KO-D Openweight Title ~ DDT Special Four Great Singles Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#5) (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi (#1)

This is the grand result of the Dramatic General Election. We have Masahiro Takanashi getting the KO-D Openweight Title shot against the new champion Daisuke Sasaki for being the most popular wrestler in DDT. Akito faces the previous champion Danshoku Dieno who may still be suffering from drastic memory loss when the match takes place. Maki Ito defends the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against the man who was screwed out of the title last July Konosuke Takeshita. MAO gets to continue his crazy path by taking on one of the craziest of them all Jun Kasai. DISASTER BOX are the latest force in DDT to step up to STRONG HEARTS when HARASHIMA & Kazuki Hirata face CIMA & El Lindaman. Maybe Hirata’s persona can distract CIMA when they fight each other. Maybe bring back some awkward past acquaintances.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita (P/c) Vs Maki Ito (I/c)

Friends become rivals when they’re put in the main event against each other. Maki Ito won a Rumble match to earn the next TOKYO Princess Title shot at Korakuen Hall. If she somehow still has the Iron Man Title by the time the show takes place then we’ll be in for a double title match!

Veda Scott will be on the show. She will be touring with Tokyo Joshi Pro for all of December and also the first half of January.


DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #20” Results

October 12, 2018

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #20”, 10/10/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
220 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

0. NO TV Match: Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari defeated Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Ishii submitted Shimatani with a Body Strangle Reverse Full Nelson (7:55).
0. NO TV Match: Jason Kincaid & Michael Wolf defeated Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino when Kincaid pinned Iino with the Philosopher’s Stomp (8:46).
1. Shigehiro Irie defeated Mizuki Watase with the Clothesline From Close To His Heart (8:26).
2. Super Sasadango Machine defeated Sanshiro Takagi with the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock (3:58).
3. MAO, Mike Bailey, Ethan Page & Priscilla Kelly defeated Jun Kasai, Akito, Masahiro Takanashi & Saki Akai when MAO pinned Takanashi after the Michinoku Tornado Driver (11:24).
4. Mote Mote Army Vs Not Mote Army All Out Fight!: Kazusada Higuchi, Antonio Honda & Shigehiro Irie defeated Makoto Oishi, Yuki Ueno & Konosuke Takeshita when Irie pinned Ueno with the YaroZ Bomber (10:35).
5. Special Single Match: HARASHIMA defeated Keisuke Okuda with the Somato (9:41).
6. Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Danshoku Dieno, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Sasaki submitted Dieno with La Mistica Cross Facelock (12:56).

Momentum has swung back in Daisuke Sasaki’s favour but it took some creative thinking to win today’s mind game against Danshoku Dieno. When Dieno put him in a Lip Lock, Sasaki pulled down his pants to reveal he was wearing fishnet tights underneath! This distracted Dieno enough for Sasaki to take control and tap out the KO-D Openweight Champion with the Cross Facelock. Sasaki told Dieno after the match that he has gone to the other side of Danshoku today and is now unbeatable! He is now sure he will win the KO-D Title at Sumo Hall. Dieno admits that Sasaki now has what it takes to go the extra mile. Dieno will activate all of his power to stand in Sasaki’s way and crush him! Sasaki ended the show by reminding everyone that DAMNATION still have the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles and the group will all leave Sumo Hall with championships.

Keisuke Okuda didn’t come alone for his match with HARASHIMA. He had HARASHIMA’s next DDT Extreme Title challenger Shinya Aoki backing him up in his corner. There was no foul play and HARASHIMA defeated Okuda with the Somato. Afterwards Aoki scorned Okuda for not having a good match, as usual. Okuda said he knows DDT is the place to be and he will scratch it.

After Okuda left, Aoki asked HARASHIMA what the rules for their Extreme Title match will be. HARASHIMA invited Gouma Ryu, the wrestling lawyer from BASARA, into the ring. Ryu explained that the rules of pro wrestling can be ambiguous. He’d like to meet with Aoki to discuss the exact rules of the match from the number of strikes allowed to how many seconds of illegal behaviour will be accepted before a wrestler is penalised. They’re aiming to have the entire ruleset figured out before the match takes place on the 28th October.

The battle between Mote Mote wrestlers and Not Mote wrestlers began with a surprise when Shigehiro Irie was revealed to be the final member of the Not Mote Army. Together with Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda they isolated Yuki Ueno and beat him with the YaroZ Bomber, although Irie yelled out “Mote Bomber” when he hit the move. Makoto Oishi tried to brush off the loss by asking “The Bachelor” Rintaro Oyaizu if their dinner party was still on. Oyaizu asked to cancel it because the women going are not interested in Oishi’s type. This week’s special guest Akane Takayanagi was then invited to the ring to be asked what was the coolest thing she saw on the show today. She said Irie. Oishi realised Takayanagi is from SKE48, the idol group that currently possess the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. He charged to attack her but Irie knocked him away with the Traffic Accident Tackle. Irie got to take a picture with Takayanagi and shake her left hand as thanks. He then asked her to keep in touch on LINE but she admitted she doesn’t use it. Lastly, Irie decided to make Higuchi the new leader of the YaroZ brand. The next YaroZ show will take place on 14th November.

Priscilla Kelly had a lot of interactions in her match. She licked Saki Akai and kicked Jun Kasai between the legs after he kicked her below the belt. She and Ethan Page dove out of the ring and the Moonlight Express swept up the pieces to win.

MAO was attacked by Sanshiro Takagi (dressed as a panda) after the match and was given a Stunner. Takagi tried to smash MAO through a plastic box but MAO turned the tables and put Takagi through it with the Michinoku Driver II instead. The two went to a stand still, each armed with a broken shard of the box.

The reason Takagi was dressed as a panda was to help out Super Sasadango Machine with some research. Sasadango’s PowerPoint was titled “How To Beat Andreza Giant Panda“. So far Sasadango has learned Andreza’s weakness, Andreza’s finishing moves and the fact that DDT is not going to get sued for animal mistreatment. Now he wanted to simulate a match against the Giant Panda so he asked Takagi to dress up as a panda and act like one in their match. Takagi did so and was in control until Sasadango pulled out bamboo. Takagi was so distracted that Sasadango easily hit the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock and got the victory. Sasadango thanked Takagi for his accurate portrayal of a giant panda. This was exactly the preparation Sasadango needs for Sumo Hall!

To show how seriously Mizuki Watase took his match with Irie, Watase wrestled without a shirt on. He shook Irie by the left hand to start the match but held on to him while they traded Elbow Smashes. Watase gave it all that he got and even hit Irie with a Running Cannonball in the corner. Irie survived the Back Drop and avoided the Tiger Suplex to hit the Beast Bomber. Rather than pin Watase immediately he instead placed Watase’s left hand over his chest. He then hit another Beast Bomber and this time pinned him. Irie, Watase and Jason Kincaid all embraced after the match.

Michael Wolf’s first proper match in Japan ended in victory. He and Jason Kincaid were able to handle Shunma Katsumata but things got difficult when Yuki Iino got in. That didn’t last long though and Kincaid took down Iino with a Diamond Cutter before pinning him with the Philosopher’s Stomp.

The audience ignored Nobuhiro Shimatani’s call for a “Nobu” chant so they could cheer for Yumehiti Imanari instead. Keisuke Ishii’s new Reverse Full Nelson got him another win.

An update on the Dramatic General Election shows that Maki Ito is still leading the singles contest with 627 votes but Masahiro Takanashi and Akito are catching up with 514 and 504 votes respectively. The big change is in the unit election where for the first time DAMNATION has been knocked off the top spot. Shuten-dōji are now in front with 1,058 votes to DAMNATION’s 1,032.

Another Iron Man Title change took place within SKE48 during the show. Yuki Arai won the title from Kaori Matsumura. Arai then announced she will show up at the next DDT Korakuen Hall show on 28th October!

The YaroZ returned but so too did their feud with BOYZ. The special guest gravure model Shihomi Yoshino was kidnapped by Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase during the show so it was up to Kazusada Higuchi, Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi to rescue her. The BOYZ had a secret weapon though. It wasn’t the towels they were wrestling in, it was Konosuke Takeshita as their mystery partner in the main event! But the combined power of manliness led the YaroZ to victory. Higuchi gave Oishi a Choke Slam, Ihashi followed up by doing the Kamigoe for the first time and Ohka finished it off with the Fire Spear. Oishi apologised on behalf of his team after the match but it was a trap to drop their guard so Takeshita could attack them. Saoru Anou, Samara and Nao Kakuta came to the rescue and sent the BOYZ packing. Higuchi invited Yoshino out for a drink after the show. She said yes but her manager came out and pulled her away from the ring complaining about how her client was treated today. Higuchi passed the invite over to the other women but they all turned him down. The rest of the YaroZ blamed Higuchi for ruining the show until Yoshino came back. She wanted to stop everyone from fighting and did so by stripping down to her swimsuit. Ohka thanked her because swimsuits make the world become peaceful. The other YaroZ had to hold him back because he was getting too excited.

The winner of the 4 Way Match would be given the right to date one of the female wrestlers who competed earlier in the show. Danshoku Dino pointed out he is gay so they agreed to let him date Yuki Ueno if he won. Dino was on track to win the match by setting Antonio Honda up for the Danshoku Driver but Ryuichi Sekine School Boy’d him for the flash three count. Sekine’s date prize would be decided by an entrance roulette performed by the women. When Sekine pressed the button it stopped on Cherry, much to his dismay. Cherry tried to flirt with him but Sekine turned Stone Cold, gave her a Stunner and drank some cans of beer afterward.

Nobuhiro Shimatani was originally supposed to be in the Kickboxing Match but he had to miss the show because of appendicitis. That may have been the best thing for him because Kohei Sato beat the hell out of his replacement Kazuki Hirata. The ring girl Shihomi Yoshino promised to take off a piece of clothing after every round until she was down to her swimsuit. No man in the building wanted to miss this so everyone did what they could to prevent the fight from being stopped even though Hirata was getting knocked out over and over. When it was clear that Hirata could not continue, there was a dash to find another replacement. One of the YaroZ MCs Brother Mon was forced to get into the ring against his will. He dodged a punch that hit Yukinori Matsui instead, knocking out the referee. Mon immediately gave up out of fear. A riot was about to break out among the wrestlers when Yoshino stopped all of them and promised to reveal the rest of her swimsuit. However her striptease was interrupted by the BOYZ wrestlers and they kidnapped her, leading to the main event showdown mentioned above.

Video staff member DT-YUTA returned to the ring for his first match in around nine years. He and his colleague Yumehito Imanari volunteered to fight against Sanshiro Takagi & Toru Owashi, mostly so they could take out their frustrations on their bosses. They attacked with chairs until Takagi & Owashi fought back. Takagi choked Imanari against the ropes while demanding him to update the DDT UNIVERSE archive. His comments angered one of the other staff members Ryohei Fukuda in the audience and spurred him to confront Takagi in the ring. Takagi kicked him down. As this was going on, Owashi swung a broom at Imanari but missed and hit Takagi instead. Fukuda then threw powder into Takagi’s eyes, YUTA Dropkicked Takagi and Imanari rolled him over in a School Boy for the three count. When the match was over Imanari & YUTA complained to Takagi about their low wages. Their list of demands included a higher salary, more overtime offers and improved workplace treatment. Fukuda also asked Takagi to create an environment that will allow DDT’s video staff to be more creative. Doing so will bring out their talents more. Takagi came up with an idea. On 23rd April in Shin-Kiba 1st RING, the DDT Video Staff will organise and produce their own show!

Kikutaro offered to be the assistant referee for the women’s tag match. Cherry felt upstaged by Samara’s Indian dancing so she attacked her. When Samara, Anou and Kakuta all ganged up on Cherry to stomp on her, Kikutaro ruled it was fair and joined in. Kikutaro’s behaviour later turned perverted and Kakuta kicked him between the legs in self defence. Tetsuya Koda was still there to continue the match as the official referee.

The two teams in the opening match were fighting over an erotic magazine. A box of tissues also found its way into the match.

DDT “JUDGEMENT 2018 ~DDT 21ST ANNIVERSARY~”, 25/03/2018
Tokyo Ryogoku Kokugikan

1. World Crazy Wrestler No. 1 Decision Battle In DDT: Joey Ryan Vs Colt Cabana
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Super Sasadango Machine (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio
3. Dramatic Dream Match: Danshoku Dino, Keisuke Ishii & Ken Ohka Vs Great Muta, Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo
4. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa

The D-King Grand Prix is done and dusted so now we move on to the next big event, DDT’s 21st Anniversary show. Konosuke Takeshita and Shuji Ishikawa headlines the event in a rematch from “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2016”. The situation now is similar to back then. Takeshita is the defending KO-D Openweight Champion and Ishikawa is the unstoppable giant coming to reclaim the belt.

Daisuke Sasaki claims that The Great Muta agreed to become a DAMNATION pet. Probably not the best idea for Sasaki to put words in his mouth.

Super Sasadango Machine has been ordered to defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title at least twice a week every week until “JUDGEMENT 2018” takes place. If he fails to do this then Producer Danshoku Dino will turn his match with Jiro Kuroshio into a non-title match. Sasadango has come up with an idea to rack up his title defences. He has openly invited local celebrities and other personalities to visit his office in Niigata to try and win the Iron Man Title from him. In return he will use his and DDT’s Twitter accounts to promote whatever it is the guests are currently working on. If Sasadango kicks out of their attack and escapes the room then it counts as a successful defence. The plan is off to a good start and he already achieved his minimum two defences for this week earlier today.

The list of booked wrestlers who are yet to have a confirmed match are Naomichi Marufuji, Daisuke Sekimoto, Mike Bailey, Ethan Page, LiLiCo, Yoshiko, Keisuke Okuda, Reika Saiki and Lady Beard.
