DDT “AFTER THE SSA AND ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~STARTING OVER IN YOKOHAMA~” Results

March 25, 2017

DDT “AFTER THE SSA & ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~STARTING OVER IN YOKOHAMA~”, 25/03/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall
310 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Lucha Libre Rules: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata defeated Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki when Hirata pinned Nobuhiro Shimatani with the One Shot Miracle Cradle (10:16).
2. Yasu Urano defeated Mad Paulie by Disqualification when Paulie attacked the referee (4:53).
3. Soma Takao defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Gin And Tonic (9:48).
4. HARASHIMA & Akito defeated Kazusada Higuchi & Guanchulo when Akito pinned Guanchulo with the Hanamasa (11:25).
5. Shuten-dōji Vs New No Fear: Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino defeated KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi when Dino pinned Sakaguchi with the Gaydo Clutch (10:18).
6. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles – New ωrestling Aidoru Vs New Wrestling America: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO (c) defeated Shigehiro Irie, Mike Bailey & Joey Ryan when Oishi pinned Ryan with the Jikiden Tornado Clutch (10:22).
*V1 for NωA.
7. Road To KO-D! Yokohama Family Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when Endo pinned Honda with the Sky Twister Press (18:34).

There was a lot of surprising announcements coming out of the show. First and foremost is the end of Happy Motels! After losing to DAMNATION in the main event, Konosuke Takeshita and Antonio Honda were then attacked by Mad Paulie who is now sporting red facepaint. When DAMNATION left, Honda took the microphone and sadly asked if now was the time to disband Happy Motels. It was an idea he’s been thinking about since “JUDGEMENT 2017”. When Honda saw Takeshita use the Bionic Elbow en route to winning the KO-D Openweight Title, Honda felt something he had never experienced before and cried from the bottom of his heart. He thinks now that Takeshita is the champion it is time for both of them to move on. Takeshita doesn’t want the group to split but Honda convinced him it’s the right choice. Takeshita accepted it but asked that they bring in Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi for the group’s final match on 1st April.

New Wrestling America came out to “It’s A Small World” for their KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match. They then sat in the audience to watch NωA perform their entrance. A missed Super Kick from Joey Ryan hit Shigehiro Irie by accident and Makoto Oishi rolled Ryan over with the Tornado Clutch for the victory. NωA celebrated with an announcement that they will debut a new song on 29th April.

Yukio Sakaguchi had Danshoku Dino beaten with a High Kick but the referee was unconscious thanks to an earlier Lip Lock from Dino. With the ref down, Yoshihiro Takayama attacked Sakaguchi and helped Dino pin Sakaguchi with the Gaydo Clutch when the ref recovered. Sakaguchi was furious with the result.

Akito dropped a bombshell after Smile Squash won their matches for the day. Akito is leaving the group! He apologised for the sudden decision and Akito stressed that there was nothing negative happening in the unit that caused him to make this decision. He is leaving because he felt he was too comfortable in his current position and that sense of security is affecting his wrestling. He would rather take the risk and shake things up if it means he can get better. Yasu Urano was shocked by the news but left it up to the other members to decide. HARASHIMA respected Akito’s reasoning and allowed him to leave. Urano didn’t like the answer but Soma Takao agreed with them. Takao pointed out that when Team Drift broke up he was worried about his future but he used that fear as motivation and it led him to winning the AJPW Jr. Heavyweight Title. And with that, Akito left Smile Squash.

During the week Daisuke Sasaki asked any potential challengers for the DDT Extreme Title to send him a postcard explaining why they deserve a title match. He received five postcards, some sent in by civilians, but he rejected all of them. Amon Tsurumi then approached Sasaki with another postcard that was sent to the address of DDT’s old office. It was sent in by a Mr. Shigeki Sato from Odate. The crowd cheered because they knew who that was. It’s Dick Togo! Sasaki accepted Togo’s challenge and will defend the belt at DAMNATION’s self produced show in Shinjuku on 14th April.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN YOKOHAMA!” Results

March 25, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN YOKOHAMA!”, 25/03/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall
270 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuna Manase defeated Maho Kurone with the Kakato Drop (6:15).
2. Mil Clown & Nodoka-oneesan defeated Reika Saiki & Maki Itoh when Clown pinned Itoh with the Mil Clutch α (10:14).
3. Yuu & Syoko Nakajima defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Yuu submitted Takigawa with the Katahajime (11:09).
4. Red Roses In Paris Vs White Dragon! Special Single Match: Saki-nami (w/ Martha) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Foot Choke (10:16).
5. Akane Miura Graduation Match: Miyu Yamashita defeated Akane Miura with the Crash Rabbit Heat (10:49).

Akane Miura has now graduated from Tokyo Joshi Pro. In her final match, Miura caught Miyu Yamashita’s Crash Rabbit Heat but a Buzzsaw Kick set her up for a second Crash Rabbit Heat for the three count. Yamashita was sorry that they cannot wrestle like this again from now on. She thought they were really good at fighting each other until the very end. Some old friends and rivals came by for the graduation ceremony including Saki Akamiya and KANNA. Miura said in her speech that she felt extremely sad when the match ended but she was happy to fight Yamashita one more time. When she first came to Tokyo Joshi she was blessed with good seniors and a good environment to look after her. She looks forward to seeing how the promotion will grow without her.

Once again Martha’s interference helped Saki-nami escape with a win over Rika Tatsumi. Saki-nami was almost put to sleep by the Dragon Sleeper but Martha used her mop to distract Daisuke Kiso. Tatsumi let go of the hold to attack Martha and almost pinned Saki with the Dragon Twist Of Fate. But Saki quickly caught Tatsumi in a Triangle Choke and then turned it into the Foot Choke to make Tatsumi give up. Tatsumi complained about Martha’s interference but Saki acted like she was on her own the entire time. Tatsumi figured out if Saki has someone on her side, then she should have a friend nearby too. Saki asked who was friends with Tatsumi? She was interrupted by Maho Kurone’s manic laughter. The zombie has Tatsumi’s back. Together Tatsumi and Kurone are the Dragon Bombers and they will beat SIN Biishiki-gun!

Yuu beat Azusa Takigawa in their preview bout before the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Match next month. Yuu caught Takigawa’s Diving Cross Body and turned it into the Katahajime for the submission victory. Takigawa said that she lost again and doesn’t know what it is like to win. But she believes she can beat Yuu then said how cool it would be for her first victory to also be her first championship.

The newest addition to Tokyo Joshi was introduced during the show. Mizuki is from Kobe and she has been wrestling for almost 5 years. Her debut match will take place on 8th April against Itoh Maki.

Itoh Maki brought 500 tickets for LinQ’s next concert in Nakano Sun Plaza to sell to the fans in attendance. She threatened to quit her idol job if she didn’t sell all of them.

Marika Kobashi announced she will return to wrestling in August. She had taken time off from Tokyo Joshi to focus on her education.


The Aftermath Of Saitama Super Arena

March 22, 2017

One day after “JUDGEMENT 2017” all the staff and wrestlers woke up to news that DDT was given two brand new tour busses by the Grace Tourism Corporation. DDT hopes these new busses will help expand their tours nationwide but first Sanshiro Takagi wants to use one to go strawberry picking. One of the busses was immediately used to host a press conference to announce the cards for the rest of March and April.

Takagi gave an update on the announcement that DDT will run the Tokyo Dome. Kind of. The plan is to have a single Street Wrestling match take place inside the arena. No date or match has been decided yet but Takagi would like to have Minoru Suzuki be involved. He wants Suzuki because Suzuki was with him in the ring at Budokan Hall five years ago when Takagi first revealed his intentions of running the Dome. Takagi said the entire building will be open to them so the match can potentially take place on the pitcher’s mound, the bullpen or even the boiler room. However none of this has been cleared with Suzuki yet.

DDT “AFTER THE SSA & ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2017 ~STARTING OVER IN YOKOHAMA~”, 25/03/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles – New ωrestling Aidoru Vs New Wrestling America: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie, Mike Bailey & Joey Ryan

NωA are a little worried that they will be defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles so soon after winning them. Even more worrying are their opponents. Shigehiro Irie was inspired by his American excursions to bring together the best American wrestlers he can find. So far he has Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey. Ignore the fact that Bailey is Canadian. Irie calls his new group New Wrestling America and he wants this unit to be like 3 Count from WCW.

DDT “DRAMATIC SANADA MARU 2017”, 26/03/2017
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Yuki Ueno

7. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – “DDT Is DDT” 20 Years Entertainment Culmination! The Best In The World Bad Guy Decisive Battle Round 2: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Joey Ryan

Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan reconciled their differences after their clusterfuck of a match in Saitama Super Arena. But their new friendship fell apart immediately thanks to them fighting over the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Ryan wanted to team with Dino so they could fight together against the Hardy Boyz, the Young Bucks, the Dudley Boyz and the Steiner Brothers. But Dino had to be selfish and not give Ryan the Iron Man Title. Ryan wants to win the title and defend it all over Orlando during WrestleMania weekend. Dino would rather keep the title… oh, and also get revenge for Ryota Yamazato getting his ass destroyed by firecrackers.

DDT “FIRST TIME ADVANCE! 2017”, 08/04/2017
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. You Will Kill Or Get Hurt! You Will Get Caught Or Killed! Special Single Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Danshoku Dino

Dino is juggling a lot lately. He also has a KO-D Tag Team Title shot to prepare for. Part of the preparations involved a match with one half of the champions Yukio Sakaguchi.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING”, 14/04/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

Daisuke Sasaki is inviting wrestlers from all over to apply for a shot at his newly won DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki wants the potential challengers to write him a postcard that clearly states their name, age, occupation, address and phone number along with reasons why they deserve the title shot. Sasaki also wants suggestions for what kind of match the title will be defended in. Postcards must arrive before 24th March and he will announce his opponent on the 25th at the Yokohama show.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2017”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

It’s surprising to see this match happen already but Konosuke Takeshita will face his friend turned enemy Tetsuya Endo in his first defence of the KO-D Openweight Title. Endo doesn’t really care about winning the title. He is more interested in making Takeshita’s life miserable and taking the title from him so soon is the perfect way to make him suffer.

9. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo
10. KO-D Openweight Title – Good Com Asset Presents: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

The feud between Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan now has American politics involved! Dino held a press conference with “Donald Trump” who claimed to be a new owner of DDT. Trump was here to give an international PowerPoint presentation for Dino’s upcoming match with Ryan. Trump said the match will be a war between two geniuses. Because of this it was difficult to determine what match the two wrestlers should have. Trump gave a SWOT analysis on Dino to solve this problem. According to the analysis, Dino’s strength is being the strongest gay wrestler in the world but his weakness is his antics making his parents angry. His opportunity is to make gay marriage legal in Japan but his biggest threat is Japan’s ageing society.

Using this information Trump came up with several ideas for match stipulations like a Gay Tag Royal Rumble, a Mutual Parant Swapping Death Match and a 30 Year Iron Man Match. He also considered moving the match over to the town where Dino’s parents live. But as the conference went on Trump began focusing on the words “SWOT ANALYSIS” on the screen. He looked closer and closer until he singled out the word “ANAL”. That’s when he made his decision. It should be an Anal Explosion Death Match! This match is a World Wrestling War so it should be fought under the most dangerous stipulation! Trump denied being Super Sasadango Machine in disguise. Dino suggested that Sasadango evolved into Trump like a Pokémon. Dino then wondered why is this match now a war? Fighting Joey in an Anal Explosion Death Match isn’t going to solve anything. Trump ended the conference by saying he will never leave Japan.

Oh, and Pro Wrestling Tees is now sponsoring this match. A selection of DDT shirts are now available on the site.

TAVERN WRESTLING “ALCOHOL MANIA 2017”, 23/03/2017

Isami Kodaka & Akito are representing the Drop Kick Bar, KUDO & Gota Ihashi are representing Ebisuko Tavern and Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi are representing the Swan Dive Bar.

So Daichi Kazato was being literal when he said he was going to turn into Best Stretchman because that’s his new gimmick, the third person to use it apparently. I have no idea who the first two were.

Hiroshi Kondo is from HEAT-UP. His nickname is “Gutsiness”.

*V1 for Jun Kasai.

Bowls of Chinese food were placed in the corner for the Yokohama Chinatown TLC Match. The goal of the match was to either beat your opponent as normal or eat three bowls of Chinese food. Makoto Oishi offered a handshake before the match but Jun Kasai flipped him the middle finger. However he agreed to sit down and eat a bowl of noodles with Oishi before fighting. When they finished they began throwing punches. Oishi reached for a second bowl but Kasai stopped him by hitting him with a lady’s handbag at ringside. Oishi fought back with a chair until Kasai was too beat up to prevent him from finishing the second bowl. Oishi then used a ladder to target Kasai’s legs. He put Kasai in a Figure Four Leg Lock and tried to eat the third bowl at the same time. Kasai fought his way out and hit a Lariat followed by the Reverse Tiger Driver. Oishi kicked out of that and also kicked out of the Pearl Harbour Splash from the ladder! Kasai did one more Reverse Tiger Driver, the Vertical Drop kind and that was it for Oishi. Kasai called out for his next challenger. Doesn’t matter if it is a foreigner, a woman, a child or an animal. Out came Akito, he’s not afraid of Kasai. He asked the champion what his favourite match rules are. Kasai said Death Match. Akito suggested a Lighttube Death Match, but only one Lighttube. Whoever breaks it with their opponent wins. Kasai accepted and the match will take place on 3rd January.
