D-King Grand Prix 2018 Schedule

December 4, 2017

DDT is trying out a round robin tournament to set up the main event of their next Sumo Hall show in March. The D-King Grand Prix will have two blocks both consisting of seven wrestlers. The winners of each block face each other in the final and the tournament champion gets added to the main event of “JUDGEMENT 2018 ~DDT 21ST ANNIVERSARY~”. This is the first round robin DDT has done since the 2010 Young Drama Cup and I think the first on DDT’s main shows since the 2005 KO-D Tag League. Every block match has a 30 minute time limit, I assume the final will have no time limit. Every show during the group stage will have one or two non-tournament matches as well.

A Block

Konosuke Takeshita
HARASHIMA
Keisuke Ishii
Tetsuya Endo
Masahiro Takanashi
Joey Ryan
Jiro Kuroshio

B Block

Daisuke Sasaki
Yukio Sakaguchi
Soma Takao
Akito
Kazusada Higuchi
Mike Bailey
Shuji Ishikawa

DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2017 ~AUTUMN~” Results

October 15, 2017

DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2017 ~AUTUMN~”, 14/10/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall
249 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Kazusada Higuchi & Keisuke Ishii defeated Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata when Higuchi pinned Hirata with the Doctor Bomb (8:46).
2. Mad Paulie defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Paulie Buster (8:55).
3. Rocky Yokohama No. 1 Decision Battle: Rocky Kawamura defeated Antonio Honda with the Balboa Blow (8:36).
4. Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Soma Takao & Mizuki Watase when Takanashi pinned Watase with a Modified Delfin Clutch (9:07).
5. ALL OUT Vs NωA: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego defeated Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO when Takeshita pinned Oishi with an Inverted Hurricanrana (10:19).
6. P Playful Series: Danshoku Dino defeated Yuki Ueno with the Strangle Hold P (13:25).
7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (16:14).
*DAMNATION acquires all of Ken Ohka’s money (690,619 Yen).

Once again Daisuke Sasaki has beaten Ken Ohka and taken all of his money. A grand total of 690,619 yen was on the line for the main event tag match. Even though Ohka had HARASHIMA on his side, Sasaki had Tetsuya Endo ready to keep him busy. Ohka’s chance to hit the Fire Spear was countered into the Cross Facelock and there was no escape for him. Sasaki took the envelope full of cash after the match. He now had so much money he felt like it could drive him crazy. He loves this feeling so much that he won’t quit wrestling after all. He wants to win more gold and money so he can get an even bigger buzz. He gave Mad Paulie 10,000 yen and Endo 30,000 yen to go spend at a love bar. Sasaki then asked Ohka how old his newborn kid is. Ohka said 9 months old. Sasaki gave Ohka 1,000 yen so he can go get the kid some milk. When DAMNATION left the ring Sasaki also handed Nobuhiro Shimatani 10,000 yen while he was carrying their stuff out of the room. Ohka swore revenge and said this isn’t the end. He is now a father with a young family. Ohka will show Sasaki eventually how strong he is because of his fatherhood.

Danshoku Dino developed a new submission move called the Strangle Hold P. Those who know about the different Strangle Hold submissions Kensuke Sasaki used to do will have an idea what it looks like. But since this is Dino doing the move it also involved the victim, Yuki Ueno in this instance, getting Dino’s crotch pressed against his face in the process. After the match Dino told Ueno he had to give him his pants for losing the match. Ueno refused and he told Dino how much he hated being put in that move. Dino decided not to take his pants because Ueno was honest with his feelings in the ring. It turns out that was the lesson Dino wanted to teach him today and his plan worked. Dino then noticed Konosuke Takeshita was watching him from a distance. Dino told him this is his way of life. DDT is his way of life. Takeshita will have to show him his way of life soon when they clash for the KO-D Openweight Title.

Takeshita countered Makoto Oishi’s Miracle Ecstacy into a Hurricanrana for the win. Akito wanted to know why was the vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles not put up for grabs today? ALL OUT just beat NωA and they were the previous champions before Shuten-dōji. Why does ALL OUT have to fight DAMNATION for the belts? Takeshita told Akito not to worry. He will be in perfect condition for the vacant title match on 2nd November. But first, he has to compete in the Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships taking place tomorrow.

Both KUDO and Kota Umeda were at ringside to support the rest of Shuten-dōji in their match. Masahiro Takanashi wanted to hold a toast to celebrate Shuten-dōji’s full reunion for the first time in ages but KUDO isn’t allowed to drink alcohol while he is recovering, Yukio Sakaguchi is driving later and Umeda will not drink until after his return match. Takanashi told the fans he will be drinking alone tonight.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES YOKOHAMA” Results

October 15, 2017

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES YOKOHAMA”, 14/10/2017
Yokohama Radiant Hall

2. 3 Way Match: Miyu Yamashita defeated Yuna Manase and Nodoka-oneesan when Yamashita pinned Nodoka with the Attitude Adjustment (9:15).
3. Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi defeated Maki Ito & Mizuki when Saiki pinned Ito with the Jackhammer (11:55).
4. Saki-nami & Martha defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Saki-nami pinned Takigawa with the Two Stage Face Kick (13:50).
5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Tournament – Final: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima defeated Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone when Sakazaki pinned Kurone with the Magical Girl Splash (20:07).
*Miracle Apricots become the 1st TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!

The Miracle Apricots win the tournament to become the first ever TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions! Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima met the Dragon Bombers of Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone in the final. Tatsumi stopped Sakazaki from hitting the Magical Girl Splash to Kurone but the Apricots joined up to give Tatsumi a Double 619. Nakajima then positioned Kurone in the ring with a DDT and Sakazaki hit the Magical Girl Splash to win the match. The new champions were giddy with excitement when they were handed the belts. Nakajima said when she started wrestling she was weak but now she became strong. Sakazaki agreed and said she is stronger too. Nakajima threw out the challenge to the rest of Tokyo Joshi Pro to chase after them. Sakazaki thought bigger and opened up the challenge to the entire planet. Their next goal is to conquer Earth!

After The Ito Respect Army lost to Reika Saiki & Marika Kobashi, Maki Ito teased Mizuki for losing to Saiki at last month’s TOKYO Princess Title Match. Saiki denied losing to her. Ito then became sad because she was pinned by Saiki today. Ito played it up so Mizuki could console her and the fans would chant her name. Ito cheered up and suddenly decided to open up membership for the Ito Respect Army! Ito then told Tetsuya Koda he is now the manager of the group. She even chased him down backstage, forcing him to accept her offer and wear the group’s T-shirt.

Before the NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun match begun, Saki-nami told everyone that she found the whereabouts of Martha’s parents. The maid will soon be reunited with them so today was Martha’s last match. Nonoko figured out that when Martha leaves, Saki-nami will be all alone. She offered her a spot to join Konkatsu-gun but Nonoko turned it into a surprise attack instead. Martha used her mop to distract Azusa Takigawa and Saki-nami kicked her in the head to get the win. Saki-nami announced afterwards that she will return alone at the next Tokyo Joshi show. When NEO Biishiki-gun left, Takigawa talked to Nonoko about their future. It’s been a year since Konkatsu-gun was formed and they haven’t gained any results since then. They haven’t won many matches and they certainly haven’t gotten married. Although it upsets them to do so, they both agreed to end Konkatsu-gun at least for the time being. They came up with the idea that when both of them eventually get married, then they will reunite as a team.

There was a promise of a serious announcement being held during the show. Hyper Misao revealed she will be back from injury on 23rd November for her first wrestling match since January! She even put in the effort of making her own poster to announce it. Misao said she will be busy tonight preparing all the tickets that will be sold to the fans coming to see her.

7. Total Assets Of Ken Ohka! Hama’s Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo Vs HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka

The conflict over Ken Ohka’s money continues. Daisuke Sasaki tried to withdraw all of Ohka’s money from the bank this week but discovered his account was empty. When Sasaki crashed a Ganbare☆Wrestling show to get an explanation both he and Ohka found out that Yumehito Imanari took out the money to both protect and invest in it. Sasaki and Ohka agreed to a tag match on this show where the winner takes it all. Ohka got his money back and brought it to DDT HQ to count all of it. Hisaya Imabayashi confirmed that 691,619 yen is the full amount being put on the line. Sasaki chose Tetsuya Endo to be his partner while HARASHIMA offered to help out Ohka, both because he is a friend and also so he can fight Sasaki before their DDT Extreme Title match.

6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) Vs HARASHIMA (#2)
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

Sasaki has decided his match with HARASHIMA will now be a TLC Match! He says in pro wrestling you have to fight using your own physical body. Sasaki admits that HARASHIMA’s body is better than his own so that’s why he’s bringing in tables, ladders and chairs to swing the odds in his favour. That’s not to say HARASHIMA is new to the stipulation. He won the KO-D Tag Team Titles with KUDO in a TLC Match way back in 2003.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The circumstances surrounding the next KO-D Tag Titles defence are not good but Shuten-dōji still wanted another shot. The previous match prematurely ended when KUDO suffered a concussion from a fluke collision with Naomichi Marufuji’s knee. Masahiro Takanashi misses KUDO but he decided that letting other teams challenge for the titles will eventually lose him the opportunity to win the belts from HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji. So he and Yukio Sakaguchi are getting their shot next. Takanashi said they are not motivated by getting revenge for what happened to KUDO. They are treating this match as a continuation of the previous match. HARASHIMA hopes that when KUDO returns they can still do a proper rematch for the titles.

Although the Differ Cup was originally a Jr. Heavyweight tournament, this time around it is using an Openweight format. DDT is sending in college buddies Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno to be their representatives in the tournament. Their 1st round opponents are a yet to be decided team from FREEDOMS. Meanwhile, HARASHIMA will be in non-tournament action teaming with Marufuji and UMA’s Kappa Kozo against a team to be announced.


KUDO Gets A Concussion, KO-D 6-Man Titles Vacated

October 10, 2017

KUDO was concussed during the main event of yesterday’s show in Sapporo. His doctor said that there is no need for him to stay in a hospital but KUDO will be out of action for at least one month so he has plenty of time to recover. Because of this decision, Shuten-dōji have agreed to vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Their next defence was originally scheduled for 14th October against ALL OUT but that match has been cancelled. A match to crown the new champions will be determined on a later date.

Senga enlisted Atsushi Maruyama to help him save Oosugi. Whether or not Oosugi actually needs saving is up for debate which just so happens to be something else Maruyama can do.

The full card is revealed along with which matches the guests will be a part of. Akito and Hideki Suzuki teaming together should be good. Ken Ohka being opposite Ultimo Dragon could be awkward given Ohka’s history with the Dragon System when he first broke into wrestling.

Shunma Katsumata & MAO will be fighting for the GHC Jr. Heavy Tag Team Titles in NOAH on Sunday. So DDT is giving them a warm up match with Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata, the DDT team that I presume most resemble the champions HAYATA & YO-HEY!

Isami Kodaka is BASARA’s last line of defence against Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. If the Union MAX Champion wins then he pretty much rules the company.

DDT “READY PRO WRESTLING! FEELING SEIJO↑↑ 2017”, 04/10/2017

6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii

The new World Jr. Champion will be having some title defences in DDT for as long as he holds the belt. Daisuke Sasaki’s first challenger is Shuichiro Katsumura from Ganbare☆Wrestling. Can Katsumura get revenge for Ohka and bring the belt back to Ganpuro?

Producer Danshoku Dino will be putting mystery people in the NωA’s corner. I’m unsure if their roles are meant to be ring seconds or lumberjacks.
