*V1 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The run of victories the Bakuretsu Sisters have been racking up was brought to an end today by the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Things were going well for the challengers until Yuki Aino’s Side Suplex was countered into a Complete Shot by Yuka Sakazaki. Sakazaki hit a Sliding Lariat and Mizuki followed up with the Diving Foot Stomp. One Magical Magical Girl Splash later and it was a first successful defence for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Sakazaki hugged Nodoka Tenma after the match, finally paying attention to her. Mizuki said the first title defence is always hard. Sakazaki said today is the beginning of a long journey for them but she thinks it’s fun to work hard like this. The Rabbits ended the show by wishing everyone a Happy Halloween.

Hyper Misao was the first person to welcome Priscilla Kelly back to Japan. However she still remembers their match from Korakuen Hall back in August and wants to get revenge for her defeat. Kelly was able to lick both Misao and Miyu Yamashita during the match. She also licked the TOKYO Princess Title belt after the match was over. Yamashita described Kelly’s wrestling rhythm as being different from the other girls, probably because she is a foreign wrestler. Yamashita was distracted by Kelly’s licking antics but she hopes to hit the finishing blow in their title match next week. Kelly doesn’t care that the match is taking place in Yamashita’s hometown. She came here to win her first championship in Japan and they should be already engraving her name in the belt’s title history.

During the week Azusa Takigawa and Yuna Manase participated in a meeting with Sanshiro Takagi to discuss the Forbidden Three rules used by Tokyo Joshi Pro. They agreed that changes needed to be made but went in separate directions with their ideas for solutions. Takigawa wanted there to be 7 less strict rules to be in effect while Manase wanted no rules at all. Takagi decided that the winner of a match between the two would decide whose idea would be chosen. Nonoko was already chosen as the special referee due to her history with both women. Unfortunately she couldn’t handle the task at hand and cried whenever the pressure got too much to handle, preventing her from counting any pins. Soon Takigawa and Manase fought over Nonoko, pulling her in a tug-of-war until Nonoko pulled both of them into a Double Boinmaker. Nonoko began crying again and the match had to be called off. When both girls got back up they wondered if a draw meant there are now 3.5 rules in effect. Tetsuya Koda said that the original three rules are still active for now and they will revisit the problem on 27th October.

Holy crap Yuki Kamifuku won a match! It took 14 months but she finally did it!

Three trainees were delighted to learn that they will get their debut matches this November. Kyou, Yumi and Haruna all found out at the same time as the audience. They each said they were surprised by the news and promised to do their best. There was also an announcement that Mina Shirakawa will become part of the Tokyo Joshi roster in November. She posed in a bikini to celebrate and said that she thinks about pro wrestling every day ever since it came into her life. Her goal is to embody Glamorous Strong Style!


Goodbye To Shibuya DESEO, Sento Minzoku, Tokyo Joshi’s Forbidden 3 Rule, Irie In Ganpro

Tokyo Joshi are coming back for one more ringless show to send the place off. The first half of the event will consist of live performances from the Ito Respect Army, Konkatsu-gun, Rika Tatsumi, Nodoka Tenma and Yuki Aino. The second half of the show will be the three wrestling matches.

BASARA “BASARA 79 ~FEAST~”, 05/10/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

5. Sakigake!! Iron Family Vs Brahman Brothers!: FUMA & SAGAT Vs Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei
6. Union MAX Title: Ryota Nakatsu (c) Vs Daiki Shimomura

A press conference was held on the 27th September to announce the full card. Daiki Shimomura is the first person to challenge Ryota Nakatsu for the Union MAX Title. Shimomura admits he doesn’t know much about the history of that championship but he thinks he will become an interesting champion because of that reason. He also wants to beat Nakatsu more than he wants the belt. It’s been two years since they last faced each other one on one in the DNA Grand Prix. Shimomura cannot wait to show how much he has changed since then.

The other news to come out of the conference also involves Shimomura. Isami Kodaka sent a written message explaining that he is recovering from both a fractured jaw and a neck injury. He is interested in seeing what interesting things will happen to BASARA while he is gone. Who will gain power? Who will behave differently without him around? He will watch from the shadows but will do so as part of a new unit called Sento Minzoku. Also part of this unit are Ryuichi Sekine and Daiki Shimomura. Sekine has now grown a monkey’s tail just like Shimomura and he will be the leader of the group in Kodaka’s absence. They have made an offer to Minoru Fujita to join them. A person with a bag over his head claiming to be Fujita just said he will turn BASARA into a lawless zone now that the general is gone. Fuminori Abe offered his opinion on the matter and said his behaviour is too good for him to join Sento Minzoku.

Stretchman Man is back to being Banana Senga so he can do the Reversal Wrestling Trial again.

In two days time Sanshiro Takagi will be holding a meeting with several Tokyo Joshi wrestlers to discuss the Forbidden Three rule used by the promotion. There is confusion over how established the rules are because they were never strictly enforced. The women also think the rules aren’t even necessary for the majority of the roster because most of them are adults.

Sento Minzoku isn’t just going to stay put in BASARA. Sekine visited the recent Ganbare☆Wrestling show to challenge Ken Ohka to a match between the two groups. That challenge turned into an attack by Sekine so this isn’t going to be a friendly kickabout.

Shigehiro Irie’s first non-DDT appearance as a freelancer is with Ganpro. This will be his second match for the group. The first took place in August 2017.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “HOW DO YOU LIKE ITABASHI?” Results

September 30, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “HOW DO YOU LIKE ITABASHI?”, 29/09/2018
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
240 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Hikari defeated Raku with the Grounded Cobra Twist (5:24).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuu defeated Yuna Manase and Yuki Kamifuku when Yuu submitted Kamifuku with the Katahajime (9:58).
3. Reika Saiki & Azusa Takigawa defeated Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao when Takigawa pinned Misao with the Wedding Elbow (14:42).
4. Miyu Yamashita defeated Hinano with the Attitude Adjustment (8:22).
5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Maki Ito defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Miu with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:21).

Yuka Sakazaki said she is looking forward to defending the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles in two weeks time. She will not lose the titles to anybody be they sisters, family, lesbians or whatever. Yuki Aino knows that it is in the ring where she and Nodoka Tenma can best demonstrate their power together. Their future will be stronger when they challenge for the titles in Kitazawa. Before then is Tokyo Joshi Pro’s return to Shibuya DESEO. Mizuki hopes to sing “Setsunairo” with Maki Ito for the first time in a while there.

Hinano started crying when Miyu Yamashita started kicking her. She wouldn’t stop until Yamashita apologised but it was all a trap for Hinano to attack when her guard was down. Hinano got some more offence in but as soon as Yamashita regained control she would go on to win the match. Backstage, Hinano said she felt the difference in her physical fitness from the last time she wrestled Yamashita. She still feels scared about taking Yamashita’s kicks but she’d rather be scared now rather than later.

Hyper Misao & Shoko Nakajima are campaigning against Azusa Takigawa’s planned graduation from Tokyo Joshi. They even set up a protest before their match that Reika Saiki couldn’t resist to join in. Takigawa got angry when they shouted about her having no boyfriend but they continued to protest while the match went on. Misao apparantly had a change of heart and offered to lose the match to Takigawa’s top rope Wedding Elbow. However Misao broke her promise by kicking out of it. Nakajima, Saiki and Takigawa all joined forces by giving Misao the 619, a Dropkick and then the Wedding Elbow to give Takigawa the victory. Both Takigawa and Misao made up after the match with a fist bump.

Yuki Kamifuku brought along the issue of FRIDAY magazine she recently posed for to proudly show off to her opponents. Yuna Manase insulted Kamifuku by asking if her photos were printed in black and white. Yuu had enough of their fighting and got involved to get the match back in track. They asked her who had the better body but Yuu’s only response was “I don’t know”. She then beat the both of them.

The return of The Bachelor Japan’s Rintaro Oyaizu has caused infighting among The Compliance. Oyaizu has been teaching Makoto Oishi & Yuki Ueno how to be popular with women. Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda are mad that they are being left out. The two sides have been told to go find a partner and settle their problem with a 6-Man Tag Match. Here’s something I learned about Oyaizu and why he’s able to do these appearances for DDT. His day job is being a director for CyberAgent’s video game division! How’s that for company synergy?

Jun Kasai, Super Sasadango Machine and Yumehito Imanari will be on the show.

September 25, 2018

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #18 ~SHIBUYA STREAM HALL OPENING MEMORIAL KOKERAOTOSHI SPECIAL~”, 25/09/2018
Shibuya Stream Hall
267 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

4. HARASHIMA, Daichi Hashimoto & Yuki Ueno defeated Kazusada Higuchi, Antonio Honda & Keisuke Okuda when HARASHIMA pinned Honda with the Somato (10:05).
5. Opening War! ALL OUT Vs STRONG HEARTS!!: CIMA, T-Hawk, El Lindaman & Duan Yingnan defeated Konosuke Takeshita, Akito, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino when T-Hawk pinned Katsumata with the Night Ride (15:26).
6. Shibuya Stream Hall Opening Memorial! Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Danshoku Dieno, Jun Kasai & Makoto Oishi when Sasaki submitted Oishi with the Cross Facelock (13:53).

The first preview battle between Danshoku Dieno and Daisuke Sasaki saw DAMNATION go on top when Sasaki submitted Dieno’s buddy Makoto Oishi. Due to the earlier appearance of STRONG HEARTS on the show, Oishi wanted his team to show everybody what real “STRONG HEARTS” look like. It involved Dieno & Oishi positioning themselves against the turnbuckles with the back of their shorts pulled down. Jun Kasai was supposed to throw his opponents into them but he got thrown headfirst instead. Another key moment of the match saw Sasaki resisting Dieno’s Crotch Grab. However Dieno’s Lip Lock was still effective. Tetsuya Endo wiped out Dieno & Kasai with the Sasuke Special. Sasaki then won the match by trapping Oishi in the Cross Facelock. Sasaki called Dieno a relic of the past and the reason Sasaki was succesful today is because Dieno couldn’t make him erect with his moves. Dieno couldn’t believe it and swore he will get Sasaki erect the next time they fight. Dieno will gradually get Sasaki to a 10 degree angle, then a 20 degree angle and finally a 30 degree angle just like Oishi! According to Dieno, Oishi is always at 30 degrees.

The first meeting between ALL OUT and STRONG HEARTS was a full fledged 4 Vs 4 Tag Match that ended in defeat for the home team. T-Hawk got the win by pinning Shunma Katsumata with the Night Ride. Konosuke Takeshita admitted that STRONG HEARTS brought the heat today and he will use the loss as motivation when he faces CIMA at Sumo Hall. Meanwhile Yuki Iino took offence at El Lindaman sneaking in a low blow by kicking the rope while Iino was climbing into the ring. Lindaman denied any foul play and blamed Iino for getting in the way of the rope like an idiot. T-Hawk asked ALL OUT to bring more heat for their matches in October. Akito marked T-Hawk as his target for the Sumo Hall 6-Man Tag. Maybe under other circumstances they could have gotten along because they have similar hairstyles. Too bad, Akito’s going to hunt him down instead.

HARASHIMA said he had a good time teaming with Daichi Hashimoto today. He thinks it was a waste that they were only teaming for one match. They also enjoyed laughing at Antonio Honda’s jokes during the match so they got to enjoy themselves while they stood on the apron waiting to tag in. Win or lose, Honda will continue to tell vulgar jokes whenever he can.

Maki Ito is still leading the Dramatic General Election by a wide margin but inside the ring she still can’t get a win. This week she lost to Yuna Manase when she missed the Flying Big Head and got pinned with a Neck Screw Hold. Ito is feeling no pressure with leading the votes. If she can’t become the Atsuko Maeda of the idol world she can become the Atsuko Maeda of the wrestling world instead.

 

Nobody is more disappointed in MAO’s injury than Sanshiro Takagi. With his Sumo Hall opponent nowhere to be seen today, Takagi has nobody to take his frustrations out of. Gota Ihashi did his best to fill in for MAO. He wore MAO’s wrestling gear and tried to replicate his moveset to mixed results. Mike Bailey was left confused by the turn of events and tried to convince everyone that Ihashi wasn’t MAO. Even Bailey couldn’t resist stomping on Ihashi after Ihashi lost them the match. Takagi doesn’t care how hurt MAO is, he is only thinking about destroying him at Sumo Hall!

Kazuki Hirata and Nobuhiro Shimatani got into a Hirata GO! dance battle. Hirata got the better of Shimatani and climbed the turnbuckles to finish him off. That was when Toru Owashi tagged himself in and pinned Shimatani with La Magistral Cradle, leaving Hirata standing on the turnbuckles.

Mizuki Watase did well to avoid the Takatonic but Masahiro Takanashi was able to pin him with the Hangover!! with two minutes left on the match clock. The question that needs to be asked now is what should Watase do after the RENEGADES split up?

DDT was treated to a return appearance of Rintaro Oyaizu from The Bachelor Japan. One month ago Oyaizu was on Maji Manji and had his heart captured by Aja Kong. He was invited back by Makoto Oishi to solve a problem within The Compliance. Oishi wants Oyaizu to hold a dinner party where they teach Antonio Honda and Kazusada Higuchi how to be “mote mote”. In other words, how to become popular with the opposite sex. Oyaizu is mote mote. According to Oishi he is also mote mote and his recent marriage is proof of that. Oyaizu revealed he is already helping out a young DDT wrestler with this, Yuki Ueno! Honda & Higuchi were furious and things got heated until Hisaya Imabayashi stepped in. The solution is a 6-Man Tag between the Mote Mote Army and the Not Mote Army on 2nd October. Oishi, Ueno & a Mote Mystery Partner against Higuchi, Honda and a Not Mote Mystery Partner!

Miyu Yamashita, Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima returned from their American adventure to defeat Reika Saiki, Maki Ito & Miu in today’s main event. Their speech after the match was interrupted by Maki Ito who demanded a singles match with Mizuki. She will get what she wants and the match was booked for 22nd September. Sakazaki told Ito that Mizuki is hers now. Yamashita & Nakajima cooled the situation down by thanking everybody for supporting them and Tokyo Joshi Pro. They promise to do their best so everybody around the world can watch them.

The America love spread over to Yuna Manase and Hyper Misao. Both of them put their heads together to create the Queen Of USA Match. Along with the regular wrestling rules, the match could also be won when somebody wears a USA hat and correctly dances to the song “USA” by DA PUMP. There were points when Daisuke Kiso and Sayuri Nanba had the hat put on their head. Eventually both Manase and Misao both wore hats and danced while they fought until Koda judged Manase to be the winner.

Azusa Takigawa has renamed the Christie Agape. It is now called the Broadcaster. On 22nd September, Takigawa will face Yamashita for her 3rd Anniversary Match.

*Danshoku Dieno fails in V1. Meiko Satomura cashes in her Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet. Meiko Satomura becomes the 66th KO-D Openweight Champion!

The entire direction of DDT on the road towards Sumo Hall took a massive shift today when Meiko Satomura defeated Danshoku Dieno to become the first ever female KO-D Openweight Champion! There were no games or tricks up Dieno’s sleeve for this match, he took the fight to Satomura as hard as he ever did. Even the Danshoku Nightmare used during the match was performed more like a heavy Sit Down Splash rather than just the usual humiliating squats. Satomura targeted Dieno’s shoulder but struggled when Dieno’s size advantage came into play, allowing him to absorb her kicks. The one thing Dieno didn’t count on was Satomura’s determination. She kicked out of three different Danshoku Drivers: the standard version, the Gotch-Style version and a Screwdriver version. A Vertical Drop Brainbuster did big damage to Satomura’s neck but Dieno didn’t go for the cover. Instead he went to puch Satomura into the corner with his Ippatsu move. Normally that would be a hip thrust but since his opponent was a woman, he kicked her into the corner instead. That had no effect and Satomura backed into him with an Overhead Kick. The critical moment came when Satomura did the Scorpio Rising and hit Dieno’s injured shoulder. With Dieno to hurt to defend himself, Satomura used all her power to give him a Death Valley Driver then hit one more Scorpio Rising direct to Dieno’s head for the three count.

Satomura celebrated becoming the first woman to hold the KO-D Title. Dieno requested a rematch but Satomura told him there is already somebody else she wants to defend the belt against. Shigehiro Irie! Satomura had wanted that match to be for the belt before Dieno pulled off his plan. Irie however cannot accept it. There is one thing he wants more than to win back the KO-D Title and main event Sumo Hall. He wants a singles match with Dieno, the man he blames for changing the DDT that he loved into something else! Satomura took offence to this and asked if Irie is running away from her challenge. The arguing continued until Sanshiro Takagi came down to the ring to sort it out. After congratulating Satomura for her accomplishment today, he looked at the story unfurling in front of him. Satomura wants to fight Irie, Irie wants to fight Dieno and Dieno wants to main event Sumo Hall as the champion. Takagi’s solution is a 3 Way Elimination Match with the championship on the line at the 23rd September Korakuen Hall show! The winner will without any doubt go on to main event “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” in October.

With the match agreed upon by all parties, Satomura was left to close out the show with her victory speech. She will soon become the centerpiece of Sumo Hall. She told the women of the world that the time to endure is already over. She will rise to fight the strongest men and women as the first ever female KO-D Champion!

The return of DISASTER BOX is off to a good start. HARASHIMA has an idea to improve the group and that’s to invite Kazuki Hirata to join them! Toru Owashi didn’t approve of the idea because he thought he would never have to deal with Hirata ever again. HARASHIMA cited Hirata’s performance in the King Of DDT tournament as well as a recent pinfall victory over Yukio Sakaguchi as the reasons to give him a chance. That success also got Hirata coverage in the latest issue of Shukan Puroresu so he has to be a good wrestler now. Yuki Ueno was neutral about the idea but Owashi was against it. Everyone agreed to a tag team match on next week’s episode of “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” to determine if Hirata can join. It will be HARASHIMA & Hirata Vs Owashi & Ueno.

At first the size difference between Gota Ihashi and Shinya Aoki worked in Ihashi’s favour. He was able to stay standing from a Sleeper Hold and then squash Aoki with a Splash. It all went wrong when Ihashi missed a Moonsault and was open for Aoki to tap him out with a Foot Choke. When the two were finished thanking each other for the match, Kota Umeda entered the ring and challenged Aoki to a match as part of Umeda’s “Mad Dog” series. Aoki asked if Umeda had recovered from his injury and the two agreed to a bout for the 17th September episode of Maji Manji. Umeda promises it will be a way more serious match compared to what Aoki experienced today.

Cherry won the 4 Way Match but was surprised to find out it didn’t mean she would get to date Rintaro Oyaizu from The Bachelor. When Hisaya Imabayashi put the match together he never agreed to the stipulation that the winner automatically gets Oyaizu. Instead Oyaizu would get to choose whoever impressed him the most. In a shocking twist, Oyaizu apologised to all of the women in the ring because there is another attractive woman he saw today working as the lighting assistant at ringside. The assistant revealed herself to be Aja Kong! She got the lighting assistant job because DDT stopped booking her to wrestle. When Kong and Oyaizu left to go out on their date to any place that has meat, the four women in the ring all attacked Imabayashi for wasting their time.

The combined firepower of the RENEGADES were too much for KUDO, Masahiro Takanashi & Keisuke Ishii to handle. Mizuki Watase has added the Koji Cutter to his moveset and he shouts “Kojikoji-kun” during the move. Takanashi was pummeled with a Lariat from Ryan Davidson, a corner to corner Dropkick from Watase and then the Beast Bomber from Irie for the finish.

Kazusada Higuchi encouraged Hirata to wear the Hirata GO! glasses during their tag match because he wanted to see him dance. Hirata didn’t want to do it because he was going to win without them. So Higuchi knocked him out of the way and wore the glasses himself. Higuchi’s dancing was very different but was fun enough to get Mike Bailey & MAO also involved. The weird dancing annoyed Hirata and distracted him enough to get rolled into a School Boy. Hirata kicked out but then got pinned by a Buzzsaw Kick from Bailey. After the match Bailey & MAO announced their new team name. They are now the Moonlight Express! The name came about because both of them would like to go to the moon where there is less gravity. They can then jump very high like they do on trampolines.

Yuki Iino was building up momentum when he hit Mad Paulie with the Spear. He went to repeat the move but the second Spear was blocked by Paulie’s Lou Thesz Press. A Backflip and the Reverse Splash got DAMNATION the win over ALL OUT.

Antonio Honda’s Gongitsune went badly wrong to the point where his hand got stuck pinching his own nipple. Honda had to go out into the audience to get help letting go.

Some unit organisations were made for the Dramatic General Election. Dieno formed The Compliance with Makoto Oishi, Antonio Honda, Kazusada Higuchi and Super Sasadango Machine as the other members. Each member has a different role in the group all with the goal of keeping DDT under control and out of trouble. Oishi’s job is to crack down on wrestlers’ romantic relationships with women, Honda is cracking down on animal cruelty, Higuchi is cracking down on anti-social behaviour and Sasadango is cracking down on internet flame wars.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga announced that he and the currently absent Michael Nakazawa are bringing back Booing for their annual election run. This time around Ihashi will not be a part of the group. Instead Matsunaga promises a super big mystery wrestler will join himself and Nakazawa to form Booing 2018. Nakazawa is also a last second entry in the singles portion of the election. He just missed the cutoff date but DDT decided to let him in because they think he isn’t going to get many votes anyway.
