Yamaguchi Shimonoseki Kaikyo Messe
138 Fans

1. Sanshiro Takagi & Akito defeated Makoto Oishi & Kazuki Hirata when Takagi submitted Hirata with a Sorpion Lock (10:27).
2. Konosuke Takeshita defeated Mizuki Watase with the Chicago Skyline (10:33).
3. Shunma Katsumata & Yoshihiko defeated MAO & Antonio Honda when Yoshihiko submitted Honda with the Prosperous Must Decay (11:58).
4. Kota Umeda defeated Yuki Iino with a High Right Kick (10:45).
5. DAMNATION Vs Shuten-dōji: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Laphroaig (13:43).
6. Nobuhiro Shimatani Local Triumph! Shimonoseki Special 6-Man Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno when Shimatani pinned Ueno with the Reverse Hit (18:14).

DDT’s tour of roster homecomings finished up with Nobuhiro Shimatani’s return to Yamaguchi. “Nobu” got the spotlight and even the win in the main event, hitting a Crucifix Pin Bomb called the Reverse Hit to pin Yuki Ueno. The last time Shimatani wrestled in Yamaguchi he promised to return as a stronger fighter and today he proved it. Next time he returns he promises to have something wrapped around his waist to show off.

Today was the go home show for next weekend’s Korakuen Hall event. After having six tag matches together, Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi are now tied three a piece with every result having one pinning or submitting the other. Sasaki has mocked Takanashi for only winning three times a year so Takanashi has promised to break that jynx next Sunday!

At one point during Match #3 MAO bundled Yoshihiko up into a ball and he kicked it out of the ring. Yoshihiko recovered and got the submission victory on Antonio Honda for the second show in a row.

Konosuke Takeshita used one of Colt Cabana’s moves to beat Mizuki Watase. The Chicago Skyline has Takeshita standing on the middle rope carrying his opponent in a Fireman’s Carry. Takeshita then jumps off and drops the opponent chest and stomach first onto the top ropes and turnbuckle.

Kazuki Hirata thought he would be untouchable because his partner for today Makoto Oishi recently won the STRONGEST-K TAG Titles in K-DOJO. Oishi wasn’t really impressed with Hirata and had to help him apply the Strangle Hold to Akito. Hirata & Oishi danced together until Sanshiro Takagi knocked Hirata down with a Riki Choshu style Lariat and made him tap out to a Scorpion Lock. Takagi & Akito then gestured another match with Oishi, maybe for the STRONGEST-K TAG Titles somewhere down the line.

1. Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata defeated Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko when Oishi pinned Hirata after the Reincarnation from Yoshihiko (8:40).
2. MAO & Kota Umeda defeated Takeshi Okada & Mizuki Watase when Umeda pinned Watase with the Umeda Driver (10:22).

6. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Tag Match Without Humanity: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Takatonic (14:26).

The back and forth between Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi continues with both wrestlers attempting each other’s finishing moves during the main event. This time around Takanashi was able to hit the Takatonic to pin the KO-D Openweight Champion. Takanashi told the crowd afterwards he will beat Sasaki again later this month to become the champion.

Antonio Honda & Rey Paloma lost to DAMNATION when they both charged in to do Bionic Elbows only to hit each other by accident. The two both made up for it by dancing with each other after the match.

The team of Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko also had problems working together except this one completely fell apart. Yoshihiko was taking care of Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata until Kazuki Hirata stepped in and knocked down his partner in the process. Yoshihiko got angry and gave Hirata the Reincarnation. Oishi then piled on top of them to pin Hirata.

Danshoku Dieno greeted the fans at the start of the show. He was upset that he couldn’t remember anything by being in his hometown of Hiroshima. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to remind him of his college days in the region but Dieno got a headache and had to leave the ring. Despite his amnesia, Dieno was able to take part in an autograph signing during the show.

7. Odawara Specialty! Kamaboko Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Jun Kasai defeated Shigehiro Irie & Ryan Davidson when HARASHIMA pinned Davidson with the Somato (12:29).

The combined power of the Pearl Harbour Splash followed by the Somato won the main event for HARASHIMA & Jun Kasai. The match was a special occasion for Kasai because today is his 44th birthday! HARASHIMA then said today is also his mother’s birthday! He also promised to follow Kasai on Twitter, which he did after the show.

Keisuke Ishii interviewed Yoshihiko after their victory. Ishii pointed out that neither of them are part of any of the units in this year’s Dramatic General Election. He asked if Yoshihiko is interested in forming a new unit with him but he only got silence in return.

Kazusada Higuchi used his sumo strength to push Yuki Iino full force into the turnbuckles to beat him.

Match #3 was supposed to be a Battle Of Wimbledon match but there was no tennis equipment available in the venue. Instead they found a basketball and created the Odawara Tornado Tag Match. For every second a wrestler gets in a pin attempt, they get a free throw at the basketball hoop next to the ring. Nobody was able to make the shot and the match ended in a draw after ten minutes. A sudden death shootout determined the winning team. Tomomatsu Matsunaga was the only person to make his shot so Booing 2018 won!

5. Yukio Sakaguchi & Manjimaru defeated Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno when Sakaguchi submitted Ueno with the Modified Cobra Clutch (14:00).
6. KUDO, HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka defeated Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba when KUDO pinned Toba with the Diving Double Knee Drop (11:59).
7. Isami Kodaka defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Isamuashi Zan (27:11).

Even though this show was put together to celebrate Masahiro Takanashi’s 15th anniversary in wrestling, he only appeared for the main event match against Isami Kodaka. He never came out at the start of the show, instead nominating Sayaka Obihiro to give the opening speech. After the main event, he bowed in the centre of the ring to every side of the building then made his exit. KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi closed out the show with a speech on his behalf. He didn’t stick around for any backstage interviews either. Kodaka said that the generation that he and Takanashi are a part of still need to step up against the younger wrestlers.

There was a nostalgic theme to the show with a lot of former DDT wrestlers showing up. Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba were the mystery trio taking on KUDO, HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka. Everyone shook hands with each other after the match, but slapped Ken Ohka when he tried to shake them.

The UMA Corps targeted Saki Akai earlier in the week by sending one of their monsters to stalk her. Today she got to face off against the Chupacabra as part of a colourful 10-Man Tag Match also featuring the returns of T2Hide, Gota Ihashi, the Brahman BrothersGorgeous Matsuno and Emi Sakura. Ihashi wanted to protect Akai but the other team easily beat him up. Kazuki Hirata brought back the Hirata GO! glasses and danced to his music. The song annoyed the Brahman Brothers because it brought back bad memories from their Toryumon lives. Brahman Shu threw a briefcase at Akai but she ducked and it hit Chupacabra instead. Akai then pinned Chupacabra with a Diving Body Press. The Brahmans fled after the match but the UMA leader Miyako Haru warned Akai that the UMA are everywhere like a black shadow. Hirata interrupted her by giving Hirata GO! glasses to everyone and they all danced.

Both MAO and DJ Nira kept putting Daisuke Kiso in harm’s way. They kept blaming each other until Kiso took one bump too many and called off the match for his own safety.

The Tag Gauntlet had plenty on offer. Makoto Oishi & Cherry were ambushed by Antonio Honda & Riho at the start. Riho later saved Honda from getting pinned by hitting Oishi with the Somato, rolling Honda back on top for the three count. Konosuke Takeshita did not hesitate to fight Riho one on one. Honda & Riho hit each other with Bionic Elbows when Yasu Urano dodged them. Urano then threw Honda out of the ring to eliminated that team. Takeshita tried to use Rekka’s Nishinari Elbow against him but missed. Takeshita was able to pin him with a Lariat afterwards. The mystery team were revealed to be Danshoku Dieno & Yoshihiko with Yusuke Inokuma as Yoshihiko’s holder. Inokuma threw Yoshihiko at Takeshita to knock him off the apron and eliminate his team. Dieno & Yoshihiko were then eliminated by Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Inakuma got tangled up in Yoshihiko’s string and accidentally hung himself over the ropes while Katsumata gave Yoshihiko a Piledriver. Rather than count the pin, Yukinori Matsui immediately eliminated Dieno & Yoshihiko to save Inokuma. Hoshitango & Kazusada Higuchi entered in sumo gear and quickly beat ALL OUT. Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Keisuke Ishii were the final entry but they lost out to the sumo team.

5. Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Sasaki pinned HARASHIMA with the Sasaki Hurricanrana (11:41).
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sekimoto & Kazusada Higuchi (c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Higuchi pinned Katsumata with the Doctor Bomb (19:44).
*V2 for SekiGuchi.

One of the recurring things to happen on “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” is Kazusada Higuchi putting his opponents through tables. This week he got a taste of his own medicine when Shunma Katsumata dove off the entrance gate to crush Higuchi through a table! Daisuke Sekimoto and Konosuke Takeshita did German Suplexes to each other but the result came down to Higuchi pinning Katsumata with the Doctor Bomb. The KO-D Tag Team Champions were told afterwards that their next defence will be on the 26th June episode of Maji Manji against DAMNATION members Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie. This match takes place two days after Higuchi challenges for the KO-D Openweight Title.

Good news everyone! Mad Paulie learned new words, “oppai” and “chininko”. Also Daisuke Sasaki revealed he is healthy enough to wrestle again so he added himself to the DAMNATION Vs DDT Elder Brothers match, giving DAMNATION a 4 on 3 advantage. Masahiro Takanashi came out to even the odds and the match became 4 Vs 4. Once again cheating from DAMNATION was the reason for HARASHIMA losing the match. Sasaki used a chair to block the Somato then Soma Takao gave HARASHIMA a Low Blow. Sasaki pinned him with the Hurricanrana afterwards. Sasaki told Soma and Endo that he heard a rumour about them not getting along and encouraged the two to kiss and make up. Endo took it literally puckered up for a kiss but Soma stayed quiet and left the ring.

Ken Ohka appeared at the show to learn what the Punishment Match he earned last week was going to be. Producer Danshoku Dieno told him that on the 26th June episode of Maji Manji, Ohka will take on the 19 year old kickboxing phenom Tenshin Nasukawa! This kid has been competing for four years and currently has a 26-0 pro record. Dieno knows how much Ohka wants to be a major sports player so this pro wrestling versus kickboxing match will be perfect for him. Ohka tried to convince everyone that this isn’t a punishment match and he is excited for it.

Antonio Honda literally tied Yoshihiko into knots during their match. Yoshihiko recovered and hit a big Sasuke Special to both Honda & Keisuke Ishii outside the ring. Yoshihiko stunned Honda with a Lip Lock which allowed Dieno to give him the Danshoku Driver. Dieno then pulled Yoshihiko on top of Honda for the pin.

Mizuki Watase’s time with two Right To Challenge Gauntlets was short lived. Mike Bailey pinned him today to win the rights of the black gauntlet. Both Bailey & MAO want to cash in the gauntlet at the 24th June show in Korakuen Hall for a KO-D Tag Title match. It had to be explained to them that the gauntlet is only used for KO-D Openweight Title shots.

Yesterday Riho celebrated her 21st birthday. HARASHIMA gave her a unique gift, permission to write “Somato” in kanji. Both wrestlers use the Somato as their finishing move but Riho’s version was previously written in hiragana (そうまとう). Now that she is an adult she gets to write it in kanji (蒼魔刀). During today’s tag match, Toru Owashi attempted to do La Magistral Cradle on Saki Akai. Takanashi gave Owashi a Thrust Kick and Akai rolled Owashi into a School Boy. Riho stopped the pin by hitting the Somato on Akai and Owashi was able to pin Akai to win the match.

Akito called out Kota Umeda for failing to defend the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles over the last two months. Earlier in the show it was confirmed that ALL OUT would be challenging Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda for the titles on 24th June. Umeda changed the subject by promoting his match next week with Masato Takana. He was interrupted by Makoto Oishi who wanted to fight him over who the real star of Maji Manji should be. Umeda ignored him.

Six envelopes were hung above the ring for the main event. Out of the 15 wrestlers fighting over them it was Mizuki Watase, Tetsuya Endo, MAO, Antonio Honda, Ken Ohka and Meiko Satomura who pulled one down each. Kazusada Higuchi went on to win the Battle Royal portion of the match, last pinning his rival Kota Umeda to get the guaranteed KO-D Openweight Title shot on 24th June. After the match each of the prize winners opened their envelopes to discover what they won. Everybody got a Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere gauntlet except for Ohka. He pulled out a piece of paper that said “Punishment Game”. He now has to participate in one for next week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI”.

The others can cash in their gauntlet for a KO-D Title match whenever they want between now and 14th October. However if any of them lose a wrestling match in any company they must pass the gauntlet over to the person who beats them. That rule stays in effect until the title match is cashed in. Watase has no intention to use his title shot while Shigehiro Irie is the champion. He will wait until somebody else beats Irie but that totally won’t happen. Endo wants to sell his gauntlet. MAO thinks his gauntlet looks cool so he doesn’t want to get rid of it yet. Honda will wait for the right moment to cash in. Satomura has a busy schedule with Sendai Girls but will keep close attention to DDT in the meantime. She wants to get her title match whenever the opportunity is most attractive to her.

Daisuke Sasaki came to a decision over what kind of match HARASHIMA and Soma Takao will have for the DDT Extreme Title. It’s a match where chairshots and low blows don’t matter. It will be a 3 Way Match with himself included! HARASHIMA realised he will be in a 2-on-1 Handicap then wondered is Sasaki was still injured. Sasaki admitted he was never injured! He took that back when Yukio Sakaguchi threatened him. HARASHIMA accepted the match idea and promised the fans he will definitely win.

The AbemaTV audience got to decide the rules for Danshoku Dieno Vs Tanomusaku Toba. The choices included Normal Rules, Pinfall Only and KO Only but the viewers overwhelmingly chose the last option, Kiss Only. Pins and submissions would only count if the wrestler kissed the opponent in the process. Toba told everyone that he got married in February and he now has stepchildren. His 6th grade stepdaughter accepted him but his 1st grade stepson Yuto refuses to call him Dad. Toba wanted to beat Dieno to earn Yuto’s adoration. He hesitated to follow the Kiss Only rule but he had to do what he had to do. Unfortunately Dieno gave his own Lip Lock to Toba, hit an Exploder Suplex and won the match with the True Danshoku Driver. Dieno used his screen time after the match to speak to Yuto on the stream. Dieno said Toba is not even close to being a great person and he likes to visit Chinese salons to pass the time. But no matter how beaten up he gets, he always stands back up through clenched teeth even though he doesn’t have many teeth left. Toba promised he will make Yuto proud somehow. Dieno gave Toba another Lip Lock and he fell down, exposing his ass to the camera.

Makoto Oishi lived up to last week’s ruling and had his head shaved into a Reverse Mohawk. He defended the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Yoshihiko in a hard fought battle that ended in defeat. Oishi gave Yoshihiko a Turnbuckle Bomb then he climbed the turnbuckles for Corner Punches. Yoshihiko grabbed Oishi and Power Bombed him into the centre of the ring. It then hit the Resurrection for the three count to become the champion. Oishi swore revenge. At least on the bright side his new wife Misaki Ohata likes the hairstyle.

Shunma Katsumata says he is already feeling great after a week working out in Gold’s Gym. Konosuke Takeshita noticed Katsumata was more confident today and that added a sense of security surrounding their team.

The show began with a new commercial for the Suntory drink Jasmine Tea starring Kota Ibushi and Yuki Ueno. In the ad Ueno plays a salaryman who experiences a refreshing sensation from drinking Jasmine Tea that is represented by Ibushi giving him different wrestling moves.
