Oishi Injury Update, Kohei Replaces Shuji, Akai Goes Ahead With DAMNATION Challenge

July 19, 2021

Makoto Oishi tweeted about his back injury he suffered during yesterday’s match. He is currently under examinations at a hospital in Shiroishi. He said he feels sore but doesn’t have any numbness in his back. Other than that he’s just waiting for updates at this point. DDT themselves haven’t said anything about it yet.

Saki Akai is taking the initiative and challenged DAMNATION for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles! The concern coming from the rest of Eruption is whether or not Akai is ready to face the powerful trio of Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino. Endo in particular is riding a high as the tourist ambassador of Shiroishi City banishing everyone he beats from his hometown. There are no actual stipulations preventing those wrestlers from visiting that place again but nobody can convince Endo otherwise. Akai isn’t afraid of the mighty task ahead of her. She sees Eruption and DAMNATION as the two strongest groups in DDT so the match must happen to see who is best!

In a slight reversal of recent fortunes, Yuki Ueno picked up the win in the main event. However, Daisuke Sasaki got away with the DDT Universal Title still in his possession. Ueno promised to get his belt back and also promised The 37KAMIINA will beat DAMNATION for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow. Backstage Shunma Katsumata said the unit will show they can get results without needing Konosuke Takeshita on their team. MAO said he will embarrass Tetsuya Endo in his own hometown. When Endo later heard that, his message to MAO was to not say Shiraishi City’s name without his permission! DAMNATION will win and make sure The 37KAMIINA will never step foot in Shiraishi ever again!

Antonio Honda’s antics were enough to convince Tetsuya Endo to join in the fun and do his own Honda mannerisms.

Yukio Naya showed up at the start of the show complaining about being left off the card. When Match #2 took place, Demonio Uno went out of control attacking everybody and forced the match to get cancelled. The mascot Pokotan appeared for the first time in ages to stop him and the match restarted as a 4 Vs 1 Handicap match. Uno couldn’t handle being outnumbered and was unmasked reveal it was Naya all along!

7. King Of DDT 2021 – Final: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yuji Hino with the Cross-Arm German Suplex (18:09).

Konosuke Takeshita is now a two time King Of DDT winner! He had to go through one of his worst enemies and then one of his largest opponents to make it back to the top. In the final, Yuji Hino stood across the ring and was shocked when the match begun because he was immediately thrown into a Blue Thunder Bomb for a nearfall. Hino took over with heavy Chops and a Sleeper Hold. The match turned into a game of one-upmanship with Elbow Strikes and Lariats thrown everywhere. Takeshita kept himself planted to block the Fuckin’ BOMB but had to become more agile idea to avoid the move by doing a Hurricanrana. Hino was almost pinned with the German Suplex and then found himself in an unusual position when Takeshita caught his arm from a Lariat. Takeshita held onto the arm and then ducked a Short-Range Lariat from Hino’s other arm. That ended up with Takeshita is perfect position to give Hino the Cross-Arm German Suplex to win the match.

Takeshita received his prize money and, more importantly, he will face Jun Akiyama for the KO-D Openweight Title at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” on 21st August! He said he is satisfied with his performances throughout the tournament and has nothing to be afraid of anymore. He’s been away from the KO-D Title for a long time but is confident to go against Akiyama in their big rematch. Backstage he said the last year and a half being away from the KO-D Title scene has not been a waste of time for him. He wants to fight as the ace of DDT and the future of pro wrestling. He won the tournament with this attitude and with the support of The 37KAMIINA behind him. Meanwhile Hino is impressed that Takeshita had a move kept up his sleeve to beat him. He might have found a kindred spirit in Takeshita and wants to fight him in a rematch. When they does happen, maybe Hino will be the one who will use a secret move to win.

All of 37KAMIINA are aiming to be champions at the same time. Yuki Ueno, Shunma Katsumata & MAO have a chance to gain a lot of ground with a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot coming up. But first they had to get past Junretsu. Katsumata kept urging Akiyama to do the NeppoWER!! pose but he refused. Hideki Okatani did it to mock Katsumata. Akiyama finally gave in and did it after he and Makoto Oishi beat Katsumata up. Okatani held his own against the sauna club but Ueno stunned him with the Standing Shining Wizard and MAO got the win with the Cannonball 450. Katsumata popped a cracker at Akiyama while this was going on. After the match Katsumata pointed to the sky and told the others he could see the aurora wishing for Takeshita’s King Of DDT victory.

Kazuki Hirata ambushed DAMNATION with Tegatana chops during their entrance. They had no effect and DAMNATION all ganged up on him. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi, Naomi Yoshimura kept the hopes alive for DISASTER BOX but whenever Hirata was tagged in, DAMNATION took over and ganged up on him again. Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie attacked him one by one. But when Nobuhiro Shimatani had his turn, Hirata pinned him out of nowhere with the Miracle One Shot Cradle!

Just like last month, there were bottles of a mysterious drink found backstage by the DDT locker room, this time with the letter D on them. Danshoku Dieno & Yuki Iino (wearing Danshoku tights) drank some on their way to the ring and handed bottles out to some of the other teams. It appeared whoever drank it would become Danshoku. Eruption grabbed some bottles backstage but Yukio Sakaguchi walked out not looking any different. Saki Akai though ran out wearing Danshoku tights and fighting the urge to go grab fans in the audience. She snapped out of it but later had the urge to do the Danshoku Nightmare as a counter to Yuya Koroku’s Sunset Flip. The Iyasareru ran in to stop her from doing anything lewd. Sakaguchi later pulled down his trunks to show he was wearing Danshoku tights all along and he pinned Koroku with the Danshoku Driver. An annoyed Yusuke Okada spanked Iino after the match for being partly responsible for what happened.

The King Of DDT semi-finals happened in the early portion of the show. Hino defeated Kazusada Higuchi to advance in a heavyweight showdown. Higuchi’s reliance on the Brain Claw wasn’t as effective on Hino compared to his previous opponents. Hino used his own Claw Hold to fight back. Higuchi tried to finish him off with the Buchikamashi sumo charge but Hino cut him off with the Lariat and pinned him with the Fuckin’ BOMB. Higuchi was left disappointed over the status quo being maintained by that result because once again he gets knocked out in the semi-final.

Takeshita’s grudge with Daisuke Sasaki was on show in the other semi-final. He also had Mad Paulie to worry about outside the ring. Some of the dirty tactics were avoided and Sasaki even gave Paulie a mistaken Low Blow over it. The 37KAMIINA took Paulie to the back so the match could continue one versus one. Sasaki was able to send Takeshita crashing into Yukinori Matsui meaning that no on was around to call the match when Sasaki gave up to the Modified Chickenwing Facelock. Sasaki hit a Low Blow before Matsui recovered. Takeshita turned things around by catching a Topé Suicida and delivering a Brainbuster in return. After a lot of fighting to get the move locked in, Takeshita finally got Sasaki back in the Modified Chickenwing Facelock and got him to submit. Sasaki vowed to get revenge in 2025 or so but until then he talked about disappearing for a while. Whether he is serious or just giving out another of his empty threats remains to be seen.

In the month when the Olympic Games will finally go ahead, a team of “Olympians” have won the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles! The squad led by Yoshiaki Yatsu all had handkerchiefs in their gear because it is a necessary item in amateur wrestling. It was Keigo Nakamura’s return from injury and he wrestled in new gear for the occasion. The match fell apart for Team Thoroughbred when their Triple Saber Chop missed its target and all hit Yukio Naya by accident. Akito & Hiroshi Yamato targeted Naya’s knees and left him for Yatsu to finish off. Yatsu did the Iron Knee/Yatsugoye with his prosthetic leg on Naya. Then all of Team Olympian put Team Thoroughbred in four separate Jail Locks until Naya gave up. Sanshiro Takagi wrapped one of the title belts around Nakamura’s waist while Naya did the same for Yatsu. Backstage Akito explained that the Iron Knee/Yatsugoye is a completely original move that utilizes Yatsu’s greatest weapon. It’s an original move because the angle of the strike is different from the Kamigoye. Yatsu bluntly said it’s because of his prosthetic leg but agrees that the move is legal and there is no foul play intended.

Super Sasadango Machine announced the ticket sales for “HIRAGANA MUSCLE 5” on 1st September are doing so well that two additional show performances will take place on the 5th.

The first complete match for “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” was announced during the show. It is Shunma Katsumata & MAO against Jun Kasai & Chris Brookes in a Hardcore Tag Match!

The next D-Ou Grand Prix will begin on 3rd November in Ota Ward Gymnasium. It is being called D-Ou Grand Prix 2021 Part II.

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Match: Shinya Aoki (c) defeated Chris Brookes, Shunma Katsumata and Yukio Naya when Aoki pinned Naya with the European Clutch (25:39).
*V1 for Shinya Aoki.

The folks at DDT have taken a liking to Kumamoto Castle Natural Hot Spring and vice versa. The hot spring’s director invited Shinya Aoki to defend the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title inside the spring. Aoki and his three challengers wasted no time in starting the match.

First they fought in the dressing room but quickly made their way into the public baths. Shunma Katsumata tortured everyone by pouring jugs of hot water over them. Chris Brookes threw him into a castle of chairs for revenge.

Yukio Naya was thrown into a hot shower where he fainted in agony. Katsumata tortured Brookes even further with dripping hot water. Naya knocked all three of his opponents into the electric bath, giving them all electric shocks.

The fight moved over to the bathroom where Toui Kojima was dragged into the chaos. Then it was over to the open-air bath where Katsumata did two Moonsaults. Everyone moved out of the way so he landed in the baths both times. He was able to give Brookes a Death Valley Bomb but Aoki broke the count.

Aoki and Katsumata fought their way into the sauna. Katsumata used a towel to send heat waves into his opponent but all it did was revitalise Aoki! He countered the ¡Hasta la vista! into a Sleeper Hold but Naya broke it up. Naya put Aoki in the Cobra Twist but Aoki skillfully escaped the hold. He then rolled Naya up in a European Clutch in the sauna to get the 3 count for a successful title defence.

Aoki celebrated the win by first taking a bath and then second challenge Brookes for the DDT Extreme Title. He asked Brookes for a handshake but Brookes splashed water into his face and then ran off. It was decided that a Double Title match between Brookes and Aoki will take place on 15th July!

5. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Konosuke Takeshita defeated MAO with the Modified Chickenwing Facelock (13:08).
6. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Jun Akiyama with a Cradle (4:02).
7. King Of DDT 2021 – Round 2: Yuji Hino defeated HARASHIMA with the Fuckin’ BOMB (24:49).

The King Of DDT field has been cut down from eight to four after today. The hardest fought match in Round 2 was the main event where Yuji Hino eliminated HARASHIMA after almost 25 minutes. Hino took everything HARASHIMA threw at him and asked for more. The regular Somato couldn’t work so HARASHIMA went for the Swan Dive version. Hino blocked him before he could pull it off and attempted the Fuckin’ BOMB only for HARASHIMA to escape. HARASHIMA used Leg Kicks and Buzzsaw Kicks to break Hino down for one more Somato. But Hino got the better of him and hit the Fuckin’ BOMB to win. The two gave each other a fist bump after the match as a show of respect.

Daisuke Sasaki has found a winning formula for the tournament. Cheat like hell! Mad Paulie pulled the referee out of the ring when it looked like Jun Akiyama was about to beat Sasaki in minutes. Akiyama fought him off but was vulnerable to a Low Blow. Akiyama countered the Sasaki Hurricanrana into a Power Bomb and went for the Running Knee Strike. Sasaki dodged it, hit another Low Blow when Akiyama stopped himself from colliding with the ref and then rolled up Akiyama for the upset.

In the battle of The 37KAMIINA, handshakes were replaced with the “NeppoWER!!” pose. MAO dug deep into his box of tricks and used Mike Bailey’s Ultima Weapon move to get ahead. Konosuke Takeshita rolled away from the Cannonball 450 and hit some Zahi knee strikes to try and put MAO down for good. MAO kept kicking out of moves until he finally succumbed to the Modified Chickenwing Facelock. Takeshita asked for a handshake after the match and got the NeppoWER pose instead. Backstage MAO said the match will make The 37KAMIINA more united than ever. He will do his best to change his image from the slapstick guy of the group to the strong slapstick guy of the group.

Last year’s winner is out of the tournament! In a rematch from the 2020 semi-final, Kazusada Higuchi gets his revenge by beating Tetsuya Endo in the latest chapter of their rivalry. The use of the Brain Claw was the difference maker here. The move helped Higuchi break out of the Yurikamome Hold. Endo freed himself to go for one last gasp but Higuchi grabbed him in the Brain Claw again and hit a Twisting Brain Claw Slam to get the three count.

At the end of the show the semi-finalists took part in a lottery to determine who will face who in the final rounds on 4th July. Daisuke Sasaki and Konosuke Takeshita both pulled out blue balls so they will fight each other. That left Yuji Hino and Kazusada Higuchi staring each other down to set up the other semi-final. Backstage, Takeshita said it doesn’t matter if he is in good shape or not. He knows he has to stay alert against Sasaki. The match will come down to luck. Sasaki admitted that his version of King’s Road didn’t work today but he’ll use it to crush Takeshita. Higuchi calls Hino a high wall to climb over. He has to break through him because Higuchi never makes it past the semi-finals. Hino didn’t have much of substance to say because he was tired after the main event. He’ll be happy is Sasaki wins and they meet in an all DAMNATION final. But he would like to face Takeshita in the final too.

The 3 Way Tag match had its wacky stuff happening. Nobuhiro Shimatani kept shouting “I’m Nobu!” in response to Shunma Katsumata doing the NeppoWER pose. They then teamed up to double team Naomi Yoshimura when he tried to stop the both of them. Soma Takao picked his moments to Double Stomp opponents and slam Shimatani onto them. Akito grabbed a lot of limbs to twist people into each other. Yuki Ueno convinced Yoshimura to work together again for a Nautilus reunion. When Ueno was done with it he hit Yoshimura with a Missile Dropkick to end the alliance. Yoshimura knocked him out of the ring with a Lariat and left it clear for Akito to submit Shimatani.

Danshoku Dieno announced his goal today was to beat Yusuke Okada so he can fully take over “Big Daddy” Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s restaurant. Then the customers will get to suck meat instead of eating it. After Dieno got his hands on Okada during the match, Big Daddy entered the ring to rescue his friend. Dieno grabbed him and attempted to do the Danshoku Driver but Okada stopped it. Okada went to give Dieno the Lip Lock but Dieno ducked and Big Daddy got it instead. Dieno then pinned Okada with the Gaydo Clutch. After the match Okada told Big Daddy that he will continue to do his best as a DDT wrestler. Big Daddy told him you win some, you lose some. He also admitted Okada is a surprisingly good kisser.

Before the Battle Royal began, some of the wrestlers found a mystery drink in the locker room with a note attached to it. The note said it was a “pick me up” from Mad Paulie. Only Antonio Honda drank it but he said it tasted great. Yukio Sakaguchi also grabbed the bottle when nobody was looking. The effects of the drink were revealed when Mad Anton walked out instead of Honda. Kazuki Hirata won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title from Shinya Aoki by eliminating him early in the match. Hirata was eliminated along with Paulie and Anton when all three of them pulled each other out of the ring to the floor. The ring was empty at this point so it did not count as a title change. There was one last entrant though. Yukio Sakaguchi walked out with a face like Mad Paulie and he won the match by default. He gave a victory speech afterwards but only said “Po.”

Hirata escaped from the Paulies but was chased back into the ring later in the show. Hirata fought off Paulie, Anton and Sakaguchi then celebrated with the Iron Man Title. Suddenly, Shinya Aoki returned with his face also looking like Mad Paulie. Aoki choked out Hirata to win back the title then celebrated with the rest of the Paulies.

The pre-show match mixed together heavyweights with the rookies. Yuki Iino and Yukio Naya cancelled each other out so it came down to Hideki Okatani and Yuya Koroku to break the deadlock. Koroku got a nearfall with a Backslide Pin but Okatani got him in the end with the Northern Lights Suplex.

Yoshiaki Yatsu attended the show to find out who he will team with for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles match on 4th July. Hisaya Imabayashi told him that Hiroshi Yamato & Akito both offered to be on the team because they competed in amateur wrestling for the Junior Olympics. Keigo Nakamura then entered the ring asking to join because he too competed in that competition in high school. He was eliminated in the first round but he wants to take on the challenge side by side with the other “Olympians”. Yatsu agreed to team with all three of them and they will be Team (Junior) Olympia!

6. Tenjin Specialty! Parental Misfortune Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Chris Brookes Vs Konosuke Takeshita & MAO ended in a Time Limit Draw (30:00).

The afternoon half of DDT’s doubleheader in Fukuoka was headlined with a 30 minute draw that took a lot out of everyone. MAO gave HARASHIMA a Package Piledriver onto the apron. That left Chris Brookes to fight The 37KAMIINA on his own for a while. HARASHIMA got back into the match but Konosuke Takeshita was there to meet him face to face. MAO would give HARASHIMA a Stunner (with the “Fire!” pose afterward), Takeshita gave Brookes a Vertical Drop Brainbuster, MAO missed the 450 Cannonball and Brookes put him in the Octopus Hold. Takeshita broke the hold seconds before the time ran out and the match was ruled a draw.

Afterwards when everyone caught their breath MAO told the fans that he left Tokyo last night, arrived in Fukuoka this morning, wrestled for 30 minutes and still has another show to do later today. He then said everybody celebrated Takeshita’s 26th birthday today on the tour bus. Takeshita talked about how as the years go by he, MAO and HARASHIMA are all DDT veterans. He also acknowledged that Brookes is now fully a part of DDT too. Brookes thanked the fans for coming to the show. HARASHIMA joined in and promoted the evening show to come later.

The level of dislike between DISASTER BOX and DAMNATION grew even further one day before the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match takes place. A surprise attack happened from the bell but it was from DISASTER BOX. Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata tried to gang up on Tetsuya Endo but he used a Handspring Double Back Elbow to fight them off. DAMNATION would focus on beating down on both of them until Naomi Yoshimura came to the rescue. His clash with Yuji Hino was heating up when Hirata demanded to tag in, explaining he was reborn to win the 6-Man Tag Titles tomorrow. Hino easily smashed Hirata aside and brought Daisuke Sasaki in for a few extra digs. A missed Lariat from Hino hit Endo instead and Hirata took his chance. Hirata went for his own Lariat but hurt himself when Endo blocked it. A Headbutt, an Overhead Kick and the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb then put Hirata away. After the match Endo called Owashi, Hirata & Yoshimura the bottom three wrestlers in DDT to challenge for the titles. He advised them to cancel the match. Yoshimura grabbed the microphone and said he really wants to win the belts with Owashi & Hirata. Yoshimura then made Hino his target for the title match tomorrow.

Hours before their DDT UNIVERSAL Title match took place, Akito left Yuki Ueno in a bad state by heavily targeting his legs during a tag match. Akito got out of the WR to deliver big damage to Ueno’s legs before applying a Modified Leg Lock. Ueno tried to counter it by Cradling Akito for a pin attempt but the pain was too much for him to bare. Ueno tapped out while the referee was counting the pin, giving Akito’s team the win. Akito mocked Ueno by telling the fans to applaud the champion for being in “good condition” today. He then pointed out that there was not enough time for Ueno to fully recover before the title match happens tonight.

The size difference between Yukio Naya and Soma Takao gave Naya an unexpected advantage. He was too tall for Takao to Low Blow with a backwards kick when Naya tried to give him a Back Drop. Takao had to push Naya into the referee in order to Low Blow him and get away with it.

Keigo Nakamura got overconfident and tried to beat Saki Akai with her own move, the Quetzalcoatl. Akai reversed the move and gave everyone a chance to see how the original is done.

It’s still all to play for after Day 4 of the Ultimate Tag League. One team who had it in the bag are letting it slip while the team that looked to be out of it caught a second wind. While Kazusada Higuchi and Jun Akiyama took care of each other, Yukio Sakaguchi tried to hunt down Makoto Oishi. It got real bad for Oishi when Sakaguchi literally knocked his front teeth out (Oishi’s front teeth are all replacements)! But in a surprise, Oishi had his opponent scouted and countered his submission holds into the Fujiyama Knee Lock for the upset victory. Akiyama praised the Junrestu leader after the match. All of his front teeth are gone but he is still handsome enough to finish 4th in a Best Body Japan competition! Meanwhile Eruption are at risk of finishing outside of the top spot. They now need to beat DAMNATION on the last day for a chance to win the league.

It’s a sad end for The Iyasareru. After a great start, Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda quickly cooled off and lost the rest of their matches. Their schedule ended with a defeat to The 37KAMIINA. They had their opponents trapped in stereo Octopus Stretches but Konosuke Takeshita broke free from Brookes and Dropkicked Honda. Shunma Katsumata then used his leverage to roll over and apply a deep pin to Honda for the three count. The 37KAMIINA know they are in a difficult position to win the league on the final day. All they can do is figure out the right timing to use the MADMAX double team move so they can beat Junretsu.

Naomi Yoshimura beats Yuki Iino to prove he deserves to be in this year’s King Of DDT. Yoshimura said he will work his way to the top of the DNA generation. He also promised to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles next week.

Toui Kojima treated Match #4 as an audition to join The 37KAMIINA. He probably failed when a double team move backfired and Kojima hit Yuki Ueno by accident. That mistake gave Yusuke Okada the opening to win the match. Ueno tried to keep his attention on Akito but admits he couldn’t grasp his next challenger’s rhythm at all today. He also had his back taped up which irked Akito a bit. Akito said he was disappointed in Ueno’s performance today and a champion shouldn’t be showing off his bad condition like that. Akito doesn’t think he fought a champion today.

DAMNATION got by with some cheating to beat DISASTER BOX. When Tetsuya Endo had Yukio Naya in position for the Torture Rack Bomb, Kazuki Hirata ran in wanting to break the count. However Soma Takao stopped him in his tracks with a Low Blow, allowing Endo to hit his move on Naya for the finish. Takao added salt to the wounds backstage when he called Hirata a weak challenger for the 6-Man Tag Titles and he should be replaced. Soma thinks Hirata would be so weak of a champion he would make Yuki Ueno’s DDT UNIVERSAL Title run look better by comparison!

2. Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (1)
-. Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino (1)
4. Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (0)
-. Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi (0)

The Ultimate Tag League begins with an upset win and a time limit draw. In the main event The 37 KAMIINA went thirty minutes against DAMNATION without a winner coming out of it. The 37 KAMIINA got to hit MADMAX on Yuji Hino but Daisuke Sasaki pulled the referee out of the ring to prevent the count. Sasaki then brought in a chair to duel with Shunma Katsumata without the ref around to stop them. Sasaki turned his attention to Konosuke Takeshita, giving him a Canadian Destroyer. But his La Mistica attempt was blocked and The 37 KAMIINA gave him an Inverted MADMAX. With minutes remaining, Hino fought off his opponents until the time expired. Both teams start the league with one point each.

The big upset came when Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda defeated Junretsu in their opening league bout. Honda looked like he wanted to start the match off with Jun Akiyama but told Brookes to get out there instead. When it was time for Honda to shine, he tripped over Makoto Oishi and hurt his knee. Honda begged Junretsu to let him tell his Gongitsune joke because his father always looks forward to it. Akiyama knew it was a trick and he blocked Honda’s cheap shot. Oishi trapped Honda in the Fujiyama Knee Lock but Honda Cradled him into a pinfall to get the three count. Backstage Brookes & Honda revealed they have a new team name to replace The European Connection. From now on they are The Iyasareru. Their win today was no accident but a miracle formed by fate.

The return of Naomi Yoshimura threw him right in the action with his former tag partner Yuki Ueno. The ring rust and Ueno’s progression during Yoshimura’s absence was his downfall today. Ueno pinned him with the Best Moonsault Ever while at the same time MAO wiped out HARASHIMA with a Quebrada out of the ring. Ueno welcomed Yoshimura back after a half year absence. He said they’ll have fun wrestling each other again. Yoshimura promised to work hard so he can reach the position Ueno is in. He also wants to help DISASTER BOX any way he can, like by winning the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

A sprint between Yukio Sakaguchi and Yusuke Okada guaranteed a quick finish and Sakaguchi got it by knocking Okada out in five minutes. Okada climbing the turnbuckles left him vulnerable for the God’s Right Knee. More big kicks and knee strikes found their mark and the match had to be stopped after Okada was felled with a Right High Kick. Backstage Okada swore revenge and wants Sakaguchi to know that this isn’t over! Sakaguchi welcomes the threat. He crush Okada as many times as he wants until he is satisfied.

DAMNATION did get a win in non-tournament action, beating the other members of Eruption along with Yuki Iino. The teamwork of Kazusada Higuchi & Saki Akai on Tetsuya Endo set Iino up for the Haka Elbow. But Mad Paulie ruined those plans and with Soma Takao’s help got rid of Eruption. Iino was placed on the canvas with the Back Flip allowing Endo to pin him with the Shooting Star Press.

An empty arena gave the wrestlers in Match #2 an idea. They agreed to have a Reverse Battle Royal match where throwing the opponents over the top rope and INTO the ring was the goal. The wrestlers were warned by the Korakuen Hall staff to stay away from the orange seat sections of the venue so those areas were also disqualification zones. Wrestlers fought on the bleachers, Kazuki Hirata danced, Sanshiro Takagi & Yukio Naya built a castle of chairs, Akito stopped himself from throwing people into the orange seats because the staff would get mad with him. Takagi brought out the Dramatic Dream bike but Hirata stole it and crashed into the chairs. Takagi attempted the Old School rope walk across the barrier but Toru Owashi knocked him into the orange chairs. The staff got so angry at Takagi he took himself out of the match. Danshoku Dieno used a Power Bomb to lift Keigo Nakamura up to Super Sasadango Machine on the ring apron. Sasadango then Suplexed Nakamura over the ropes and into the ring to win the match.

After the match Sasadango complained about himself and Dieno not being booked for “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” yet. They want a match against NOAH wrestlers and Sasadango doesn’t care who it is as long as it shows the different ideologies between DDT and NOAH. Dieno copped on and tried to stop Sasadango, realizing who he was going to challenge. Sasadango went ahead and said he wants Takashi Sugiura! Sasadango and an unwilling Dieno are going to fight Sugiura-gun! Sasadango tried to convince Dieno it’s a good idea because the match might get them on the cover of Shukan Puroresu.

In the opening match between the rookies, Hideki Okatani defeated Toui Kojima. The less experience Kojima hit a Full Nelson Buster but missed a Diving Body Press. He defended himself from the Northern Lights Suplex the first time but Okatani wore him down until he got to hit the move for the win.

The King Of DDT 2021 begins on 16th June. The 16 entries are Akito, Jun Akiyama, Yuki Ueno, Tetsuya Endo, Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata, Chris Brookes, Yukio Sakaguchi, Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao, Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Kazusada Higuchi, Yuji Hino, MAO and Naomi Yoshimura.

Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao Vs Chris Brookes, Shunma Katsumata & MAO has been added to “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”.

New additions to the “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” Battle Royal include Makoto Oishi, Saki Akai, Antonio Honda, Yusuke Okada, Toru Owashi, Kazuki Hirata, Yuya Koroku, Yuji Hino, Shu Sakurai and Yuna Manase. The NOAH entries will be announced at a later date.

Daisuke Sasaki and the rest of DAMNATION were all happy to be wrestling in front of fans in Hamamatsu today. The state of emergency in Tokyo means Sasaki has nowhere to go drink and swear. On the bright side the Ultimate Tag League will begin next week and he is going to win it with Yuji Hino! When DAMNATION left the ring, Hiroshi Yamato stayed behind so he could close out the show with his song.

A big blow was dealt in the semi-main event when HARASHIMA knocked out Jun Akiyama! A well timed Somato to the back of the head caught Akiyama off guard and rendered him useless in the match’s final stretch. HARASHIMA stood over Akiyama after the match and kept his eyes on him as he was carried to the back. HARASHIMA then turned his attention to the fans and thanked them for coming to see the show.

Yukio Naya launched a surprise attack on Tetsuya Endo to start their match. Endo used Yukinori Matsui as a shield to change the pace and take over control. Endo later used his shirt to cover Matsui’s head so he could give a Low Blow to Naya without being caught. Naya kicked out of the Cradle but Endo was able to beat him with the Swan Dive 450 Splash.

Saki Akai is determined to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title from Chris Brookes. She demanded to face him in the ring during their tag match. When the match was finished, Akai then tried rolling up Brookes in a School Boy. Unfortunately for her, Akito broke the count and Brookes escaped with the title.

Today is Children’s Day so Matsui asked Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda, Toru Owashi and Kazuki Hirata to provide a match that is suitable for the kids in the audience to watch. Oh dear. Dieno went into the Hell Gate position, Honda and Hirata knocked each other out, Honda plunged head first into Dieno’s backside and then fell on top of Hirata to pin him.
