This episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” was focused on highlighting the upcoming Quarter Finals of the King Of DDT tournament. In the main event, Yukio Sakaguchi put down his fellow Quarter Finalists Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo in a tag match. Sakaguchi’s partner KUDO celebrated because it was the first and he thinks maybe last time he won a main event match on Maji Manji.

Danshoku Dieno noticed something about Kazuki Hirata’s miracle run in King Of DDT. Hirata never used his Hirata GO! glasses during the matches he wins. Hirata explained that he enjoys the style of wrestling in the tournament and decided not to use the glasses for that reason. Dieno wasn’t convinced so he left a pair of glasses in the corner of the ring before their match began. During the match the room went dark and the glasses spoke to Hirata. They’ve been together for years but recently Hirata has left the glasses behind. The glasses feel lonely but it will not give up. Today is the day they will reunite in the ring! Hirata was tempted to reach over when he needed the aid but he ultimately resisted. Meanwhile Dieno was also holding back. He wasn’t using any of his crotch attacks and that made his crotch feel left out. Unlike Hirata, Dieno listened to his greatest weapon and used it to try and get the advantage. He hit the Danshoku Driver but Hirata kicked out! Dieno then attempted the Moonsault but Hirata rolled out of the way and pinned Dieno with the Miracle One Shot Cradle. Hirata wondered if the voices he heard today were all just in his head. He promised his GO! glasses that when he wins the King Of DDT, he will wear them again when he wins the KO-D Openweight Title at Sumo Hall!

Two more Quarter Finalists had a good time together when HARASHIMA & Mike Bailey won their match against DAMNATION. HARASHIMA struck Mad Paulie from behind with the Somato and Bailey finished him off with the Ultima Weapon.

All the participants in Match #3 wore gothic lolita clothing to impress this week’s guest Misako Aoki. As the match went on Antonio Honda opened up his outfit and left his chest bare. He then took Aoki’s stuffed toy rabbit hostage and would only give it back if everyone listened to his story that mixes Gongitsune and Alice In Wonderland together. Aoki stopped Honda by pinching his nipples. Lady Beard then rolled him over for the pin.

A foot injury prevented Kota Umeda from competing in the DNA 10-Man Tag Match. Kazusada Higuchi took his place. Shunma Katsumata promoted the final DNA show before its hiatus on 10th August. He’d like everyone to come see the amazing place they made in Kitizawa Town Hall over the last 3 years and 8 months.

Kendo Kashin asked where the championship belts were at the start of the opening match. He forgot that the planned KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match was cancelled and his team were fighting a different set of wrestlers. He was able to make Sanshiro Takagi tap out to a Cross Armbreaker after Ken Ohka accidentally hit Gota Ihashi with the Fire Spear.

Makoto Oishi is really putting effort into his claim that he is Mr. Maji Manji. He went to the trouble of beating Masahiro Takanashi with the Manjigatame in the dark match.

Gota Ihashi Vs MMA fighter Shinya Aoki was announced for the 28th August episode of Maji Manji.

6. Beer Garden Specialty King Of DDT 2018 Customer Lottery 8-Man Tag Match: Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo when Hirata pinned MAO with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (18:41).

The annual Fan Lottery tag match gave us HARASHIMA, Mike Bailey, MAO & Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazuki Hirata, Keisuke Ishii, Daisuke Sasaki & Yukio Sakaguchi in the main event. Sasaki and Endo wanted to start the match in a neutral corner together but Endo’s teammates had to drag him over to their side of the ring. Sasaki and Endo did end up working together until Bailey & MAO wiped them out with the Skylab Hurricance. Hirata rolled out of the way from MAO’s Cannonball 450. That gave Sakaguchi the chance to hit the God’s Right Knee to MAO and Hirata rolled him into the Miracle Cradle for the three count.

Hirata celebrated and once more showed that the “small fish” in this year’s King Of DDT is on a miracle run! The DDT roster was brought out to the ring for a last round of drinks together along with some dancing. Sanshiro Takagi promoted the busy schedule for the rest of the year. We have the next “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” in two days time, there are trips to Nagoya and Osaka, there are the monthly Korakuen Hall shows, there is the Dramatic General Election in September and finally of course there is Sumo Hall on 21st October.

Danshoku Dieno, Saki Akai, Toru Owashi and Yasu Urano were given 3 minutes to finish their match before Hisaya Imabayashi could tell his scary story. This was Ueno’s first time taking part in the tradition and he told everyone he had trained himself not to get scared. When Imabayashi came out something strange happened. There was the spirit of a dead child (Yuni) piggybacking on him! Everybody could see him except for Imabayashi and Ueno. Imabayashi was feeling too ill to notice anything while Ueno’s training was turning out to be effective. Ueno convinced Imabayashi to increase the match time limit to 5 minutes. The match went on as normal until the child decided to get in the way and scare all of the wrestlers, except for Ueno who tried not to notice him. The time elapsed and the bell rang so Imabayashi could start his story.

However midway through the story Imabayashi broke into a coughing fit. Dieno suggested he should take a rest and leave. It turned out to be a ruse and Imabayashi made Dieno faint by pointing at him and shouting “It’s you!” He then did it to Ueno, then Akai, then Owashi and finally Yukinori Matsui. Imabayashi then brought out his Atsushi Onita impression and spat water into the audience while “Wild Thing” played. The child spirit joined in until Imabayashi collapsed and died. The lights went out and a spotlight shined over the child…

“I wonder who is next… It’s you!”

Match #3 was in jeopardy when Makoto Oishi came out in his casual clothes and a backpack. He told everyone he came out to say goodbye because he is quitting DDT! Oishi blamed Takagi for burning him out with useless jobs. One example was Takagi making Oishi collect 60 flashlight pens the night before the Tokyo Idol Festival only to never use them at the wrestling matches held there. Takagi also took Oishi’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet from him recently. Super Sasadango Machine offered to hand over his Gauntlet to Oishi but it was turned down out of principal. Oishi isn’t going to team with Takagi today because he is quitting! Sasadango & Nobuhiro Shimatani came up with an idea. Oishi can team with them so they can all beat up Takagi instead. The match went ahead and turned into a crazy mess of slams onto beer cans and plastic cases. The numbers game was too much for Takagi and Oishi pinned him to get his revenge. Oishi’s opinion on everything suddenly changed. DDT is the best! Takagi is the best boss a guy can have! Oishi would do anything for him. We are Dramatic Dream Team!

Antonio Honda went down with a sudden case of love sickness so A.YAZAWA was brought in to replace him in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Death Match. YAZAWA and Kazusada Higuchi danced and drank the night away to different songs until they fell asleep. Matsui almost counted them out when “Thriller” played and the two rose up to dance like zombies. This continued on until Higuchi pinned YAZAWA.

The Naomi Kingdom look to be making themselves comfortable in DDT after a win over RENEGADES.

Kota Umeda is back from injury and made his return in the 4 Way Tag Match. Everybody agreed to make the match No Tag rules so everyone was free to swap out when they wanted to.

And with that, Fighting Beer Garden 2018 has ended! I need a drink.

1. 3 Way Match: Naomi Yoshimura defeated Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Mad Paulie when Yoshimura pinned Matsunaga with a Lariat (5:55).
2. KUDO & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Mizuki Watase & Jason Kincaid when KUDO pinned Watase with the Diving Double Knee Drop (4:35).

5. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: Mike Bailey defeated Shunma Katsumata with a Buzzsaw Kick (9:01).
6. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Soma Takao by TKO with the Modified Cobra Clutch (9:46).
7. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: HARASHIMA defeated Toru Owashi with the Somato (10:57).
8. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: MAO defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Chile Driver (7:35).
9. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: Tetsuya Endo defeated Kazusada Higuchi with the Shooting Star Press (12:41).
10. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Antonio Honda with La Mistica Cross Facelock (18:53).
11. King Of DDT 2018 – Round 2: Kazuki Hirata defeated Tanomusaku Toba with the Sliding Kick (8:20).

The King Of DDT has been whittled down to the final eight. Kazuki Hirata’s miracle run continues with a victory over Tanomusaku Toba in the main event. There was no Gongitsune to be seen as Antonio Honda lose to Daisuke Sasaki in a close bout. Tetsuya Endo put Kazusada Higuchi through a table with the Firebird Splash in the crowd on route to winning his match. Yukio Sakaguchi sent Soma Takao into unconsciousness with the Cobra Clutch. Mike Bailey escaped a Stretch Muffler from Shunma Katsumata and struck a Buzzsaw Kick for the three count. Keisuke Ishii survived a European Clutch to pin Akito with the Double Arm DDT.

For the match between Masahiro Takanashi and MAO, there were several traps laid by Takanashi to distract his opponent. First the match began with KUDO walking out dressed in Makoto Oishi’s NωA costume singing “Never Give Up☆I LOVE YOU”. Later when MAO chased Takanashi out of the room. He reappeared dragging a person dressed like Takanashi into the ring but it turned out to be Chinsuke Nakamura! All of Takanashi’s distractions couldn’t get him the win though. MAO got the upper hand and hit the Chile Driver on Takanashi to advance.

Toru Owashi had his one major serious performance of the year against his former Disaster-BOX partner HARASHIMA but couldn’t get the win. Owashi felt like it was the last big match he had in him so he will go back to teaming with T2Hide in comedy matches.

The Quarter Final draw took place at the end of the show. The matches taking place at Korakuen Hall on 25th August are Bailey Vs MAO, Endo Vs Hirata, HARASHIMA Vs Sakaguchi and Sasaki Vs Ishii. Hirata closed out the show by dancing to “TOKYO GO”.

Danshoku Dieno booked Yuni on the show today and told him that the summer break is enough time for him to grow up into an adult. Nobuhiro Shimatani swore he would protect Yuni but that was a difficult task with Dieno involved. Yuni got the upper hand when he gave both Dieno and Oishi the Kancho. Yuni also tried to defend Shimatani but he ended up getting the Lip Lock from Dieno. Dieno then pinned Shimatani with the Danshoku Driver.

Continuing on from yesterday’s show, Tomomitsu Matsunaga drank even more beer during his match. He even got Naomi Yoshimura and Mad Paulie to get involved while they wrestled each other.


DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2018 ~ALL OUT DAY~” Results

August 3, 2018

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2018 ~ALL OUT DAY~”, 03/08/2018
Shinjuku FACE
355 Fans

1. Matsunaga Formula Drunk Match ~ Lumberjack Customers Bring The Alcohol Death Match ~ Keisuke Ishii Heisei Last Summer Special: KUDO Vs Yuki Ueno ended in a No Contest (6:27).
1a. Rematch – Complete Settlement Finger Sumo Rule: Yuki Ueno defeated KUDO by 3 Count (11:55).
2. Wrestling Rules: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Kuishinbo Kamen with an Achilles Tendon Lock (R2 4:44).
3. Double Main Event: Akito Vs Isami Kodaka ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
4. Double Main Event II – Falls Count Anywhere Customers Bring The Weapons Death Match: Violento Jack defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Package Piledriver onto a Can Board (18:59).
5. Bonus Track: Akito, Shunma Katsumata & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani, Yuki Ueno & Yuki Iino when Katsumata pinned Iino with a Diving Foot Stomp (3:38).

Today was ALL OUT’s turn to have a go at Beer Garden. At this point in the week a few wrestlers have gotten more than their fill of alcohol. They all wanted Shunma Katsumata to drink with them after the main event. Yukio Sakaguchi stepped in and told everyone it was not good for Katsumata’s health to be forced into drinking alcohol. Nobuhiro Shimatani, Yuki Ueno & Yuki Iino all decided to attack Sakaguchi, Akito & Katsumata causing an impromptu match to close out the show. Sakaguchi used Kuishinbo Kamen’s top as a cape to lure Iino into a bullfight. Iino crashed into the turnbuckles. Akito put Iino into a choke and positioned him for Katsumata to hit the Diving Foot Stomp for the win. Konosuke Takeshita joined the rest of ALL OUT to celebrate with one more drink.

Katsumata’s scheduled match was a Fans Bring The Weapons Death Match against Violento Jack. There were already tables, ladders and barbed wire boards placed in the ring but the wrestlers also got different items from the audience to use on each other. The match found its way over to the counters and Jack gave Katsumata a Package Piledriver through a board with empty cans attached to it. After the match Jack said he will never forget Katsumata’s name after today and he appreciated his hard work. Looks like Katsumata has made a new amigo and he is scary as hell!

Akito and Isami Kodaka spent 20 minutes of grappling back and forth without a winner determined. Before the match began Kodaka went around having a beer bash like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Meanwhile Akito decided to wrestle barefoot. In the final minutes both of them tried to find transitions out of a Headlock to get a flash pin but the time ran out without anybody getting pinned. Kodaka told Akito he doesn’t want to wrestle against him much because the fatigue he gets from it is unlike any other time he wrestles. However he noticed that Akito is still in the King Of DDT tournament. If Akito can win it and become the KO-D Openweight Champion then maybe the next time they fight they will both be standing at the top of DDT!

Nobody told Kuishinbo Kamen about Takeshita’s injury. Also nobody told him that Sakaguchi was his new opponent. He was so surprised when he stood across a large scary man in the ring today. He didn’t want to fight Sakaguchi so he instead took out a picture book to read. Sakaguchi took the book and wanted to fight. Kamen agreed to have a match made up of three rounds, two minutes each. Kamen convinced Sakaguchi to do his comedy spots with like the pose, the hop and the Low Blows. Sakaguchi knocked down Kamen with a High Kick but Yukinori Matsui was recovering from the Low Blow. Takeshita got into the ring and everybody gave each other Leg Kicks. Kamen but Sakaguchi in a Leglock that had no effect. Sakaguchi reversed the move and Kamen immediately tapped out. Sakaguchi felt so bad about making Kamen upset after the match that he gave him back his book and asked him to read it to everyone. Takeshita brought out a large version of the book for the audience to see and everyone had a fun time reading it.

Plans for Tomomitsu Matsunaga’s opening match were changed when most of the participants were declared too drunk to wrestle. The match became KUDO Vs Yuki Ueno in a Lumberjack match where the Lumberjacks forced anyone thrown out of the ring to drink more alcohol. The match reached its most obvious conclusion when both KUDO and Ueno got too drunk to wrestle. The solution to this problem was to determine the winner with a game of Finger Sumo. While that went on the other wrestlers found new drinking games to pass the time. They did a lottery where fans pulled out names. They then brought out a dartboard with everyone’s name on it and got Yuni (how was he allowed in here?) to throw a dart and pick the next drinker. Ishii’s name was far larger than anyone else’s. Back at the Finger Sumo, the theme song to “Over The Top” played. KUDO tried to put Ueno in a Cross Armbreaker position but Ueno outmanoeuvred him and pinned down KUDO’s thumb for the three count.

The wrestlers also drank during Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s public yoga session. I think they may have a problem.

DDT “FIGHTING BEER GARDEN 2018 ~SHUTEN-DOJI & HARASHIMA DAY~”, 01/08/2018
Shinjuku FACE
546 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. HARASHIMA, KUDO & Danshoku Dieno (Gorgeous Matsuno) defeated Brahman Shu, Brahman Kei & Gorgeous Matsuno (Danshoku Dieno) when HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno with the Somato (8:13).
2. NEO Biishiki-gun Vs Gatoh Move: Sakisama, Martha & Yoshikosama defeated Emi Sakura, Riho & Mei Suruga when Martha pinned Suruga with a Cradle (16:20).
-. Secret Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated DJ Nira by Disqualification when Nira attacked the referee (6:13).
3. Shuten-dōji Vs Hebikai Tensai!: KUDO, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated JARASHIMA, Hoshihebi & Kazusada Jaguchi (w/ Poison Sawada JULIE) when KUDO pinned Hoshihebi with the Diving Double Knee Drop (11:39).

Poison Sawada JULIE made his presence felt throughout the show by poisoning several wrestlers with his Snake Magic. After every match some of the wrestlers would raise a toast and drink a beer then they could collapse because the beer was spiked! JULIE would then send his minions Hoshihebi and Kazusada Jaguchi out to grab the unconscious people and carry them backstage so they would be transformed into JULIE’s snake warriors. What was JULIE’s ultimate goal? Why, to perform a big song and dance number in the main event of course! Shuten-dōji came to the rescue and fought against JULIE’s team with a special No Tag Rule added at the last minute. JULIE interfered by using his Snake Magic until a mistaken Clothesline from Jaguchi knocked him off the apron. From there the Shuten-dōji team fought back and grabbed the victory. JULIE accepted defeat and promised to give everyone the antidote to turn them back to normal. KUDO appreciated JULIE’s decision and he thanked him for his role in making DDT bigger by adding a fantasy element to the promotion. Masahiro Takanashi also said it was fun to hear the rattles of the snake magic again. Everyone turned back to normal except for Sayaka Obihiro because there was none left for her. Nobody was bothered by that.

Yukio Sakaguchi was surprised to learn there was a secret match prepared for him against DJ Nira. Some of the antics Nira used included attacking Sakaguchi with an umbrella and sitting down everytime Sakaguchi went for the God’s Right Knee. Nira then used a bizarre submission hold that involved making Sakaguchi fall down on one knee so Nira can put all of his weight on the other knee by standing on it. When Yukinori Matsui moved in to check if Sakaguchi would give up, Sakaguchi lifted Nira off of his knee and onto Matsui’s knee. This put Matsui in so much pain that he ended the match without a winner.

As usual NEO Biishiki-gun thought their opponents were a bunch of garbage, except for Riho. Sakisama sees something special in her that is different from everyone else. Emi Sakura told the rest of the Gatoh Move team how frustrating it is to lose. She put the blame entirely on Mei Suruga and said if she is garbage then she better get cleaned up.

Danshoku Dieno and Gorgeous Matsuno bumped heads and swapped bodies at the start of the show. So for the opener we had Dieno wrestling as Matsuno and Matsuno wrestling as Dieno. This is happening along with the usual Brahman Brothers shenanigans by the way. They hit heads again after the match and returned to normal after HARASHIMA pinned Matsuno (Dieno) with the Somato.

Even though Irie’s attitude towards DDT has turned sour, there wasn’t any hatred shown towards HARASHIMA after the match. The two showed respect to each other and Irie thanked HARASHIMA for the match.

With the once impossible task now passed, Irie can now move on to his next goal as KO-D Openweight Champion. He wants to go abroad and defend the title against foreign wrestlers. Hisaya Imabayashi told Irie that DDT needs to know in advance who Irie will be fighting so they can authorise any title defences. Irie brought up the one way ticket to New York that Kazusada Higuchi was given after the 2016 DNA Grand Prix that he never used. Maybe Irie will take it for his travels. That like the overseas title defences is another thing DDT once promised that they never followed up on. Danshoku Dieno said if this is what Irie wants then it is Dieno’s duty as DDT Producer to endorse it. Irie said he already decided it will happen and Dieno will not get any say on the matter. Dieno tried to tell Irie that he hopes Irie will not lose the title but he was suddenly interrupted by Irie’s buddy Sammy Guevara.

The opening match today ended Sammy Guevara winning a Right To Challenge Gauntlet and he decided he will cash it in right now! Dieno was happy to tell Irie that the match was happening right now too. Guevara started quick with a Topé out of the ring but his high risk moves went against him later when Irie threw him over the corner post onto the rest of Irie-gun outside! Guevara recovered to hit the Cannonball 630 but that only got a nearfall. Irie put a stop to Guevara’s sprint by hitting him with the Traffic Accident Tackle and getting the pin with the Beast Bomber. After the match Irie called Guevara stupid, but he likes how crazy he is. If a fool like Guevara is brave enough to pick a fight with Irie then that’s the kind of guy Irie wants on his team. When the show was over, Irie decided on the official name for his unit. From now on they are RENEGADES. They are traitors to DDT and will rebel against the company!

Today was a sad day for DAMNATION with plenty of despair to go around. Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie lost the KO-D Tag Team Titles to Mike Bailey & MAO. It took Bailey and MAO to jump off the same turnbuckle at the same time onto the champions to win. MAO hit the Cannonball 450 on Endo to pin him in the ring while Bailey landed a Moonsault onto Paulie outside the ring. MAO was even more satisfied because it is the first time he has decisively beaten one of his seniors and also because he and Bailey won the titles on their first attempt.

If losing championships were bad, having your heart broken was worse. Daisuke Sasaki shared the ring with Asuka but not for a wrestling match. Instead he wants to show the world all of the BIG LOVE they have for each other. Unfortunately Asuka admitted she was never seriously into him. Sasaki isn’t her type and he’s also too old for her anyway. The revelation sent Sasaki into a frenzy and he was no longer going to hold back. Asuka hit a Choke Slam but her Moonsault was blocked. Sasaki got a nearfall with the Diving Elbow Drop. He knew Asuka was beaten but he gave her one last chance to change her mind. All he wanted was for her to say “BIG LOVE”. Instead Asuka gave Sasaki the middle finger and shouted “Fuck you!” Sasaki put Asuka in the Crossover Facelock to make her tapout. BIG LOVE is dead. Now Sasaki is reborn with feelings stronger than hatred. He swears he will kill everyone!

The Uchicomi! company wanted a new spokesperson when Ken Ohka turned out to be a failure for them. Ohka won the match to become the first ever Uchikomi! Openweight Ultimate Champion so they are back to square one. However the Uchikomi! director Michiaki Nakano was impressed by Ohka’s performance in the match and is willing to give Ohka another chance. In the Battle Royal portion of the match, Alex Ace’s size allowed him to dominate the ring and eliminate several wrestlers by Ring Out. It was only miscommunication from Antonio Honda that led to them getting eliminated. Super Sasadango Machine was also able to win a Right To Challenge Gauntlet from Kouki Iwasaki when Rekka accidentally struck his partner, costing them the match.

The ALL OUT boys are busy preparing for their match against the Sendai Girls on Tuesday. To help them figure out what wrestling against joshi is like, they sent their cousins Keiko Takeshita Jr., Akiko & Carousel❤Shun to wrestle in their place against another “joshi” team of Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Kazuko Hirata. Actually Keiko Jr. might be Konosuke Takeshita’s aunt rather than cousin judging by her appearance and behaviour. Takeshita Jr. hulked up and ripped off her clothes before pinning Takagi with the Leg Drop. They won’t be around on Tuesday to see their relatives defend the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

Sammy Guevara won his Right To Challenge Gauntlet from Yukio Sakaguchi in the opener. Mizuki Watase, Jason Kincaid & Facade all hit Coast To Coast Dropkicks on Sakaguchi but Guevara’s pin was stopped by Sakaguchi’s teammates. Sakaguchi applied a Sleeper Hold but Guevara slipped out of it and hit a Running Knee to the back of Sakaguchi’s head for the surprise three count.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga grabbed Yuki Ueno’s tights during the Samson Clutch to beat him.

Former Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestler Nonoko has been appointed as the food producer for Beer Garden week. She promises to stimulate all five senses of the customers with her menu.

Kota Umeda will be out of action for the rest of the month because of his left knee injury.

The 2018 Dramatic General Election will begin on 4th September and end on 28th October. The 28/10 Korakuen Hall show will be a “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” special!
