6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match: Saki-sama & Azusa Christie (c) defeated Miyu Yamashita & Marika Kobashi when Christie pinned Kobashi with the Christie Agape (11:15).
*V2 for NEO Biishiki-gun.

Marika Kobashi didn’t waste any time in getting her hands on NEO Biishiki-gun and attack them before the match began. The champions regrouped and Saki-sama kept Miyu Yamashita occupied while Azusa Christie pinned Kobashi with the Christie Agape. Afterwards Saki said what Kobashi did to them at the start was cowardly. NEO Biishiki-gun didn’t just choose to become the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions, the championship chose them. She told Kobashi to leave but instead Reika Saiki came out. Saiki challenged the champions to a title match but instead of teaming with Yamashita, Saiki will team with Kobashi! Saiki said she has a good eye for talent and she thinks Kobashi can become stronger. Yamashita stared at Saki-sama then gave Saiki her blessing to team with Kobashi. Christie called them rude but she understands they will always go after Saki-sama like insects attracted to a light bulb because they are jealous of Saki’s beauty. Saki accepted the challenge but only because she was in a good mood. After she left, Saiki told Kobashi that it is not that sweet to be strong. Kobashi said she doesn’t care about being sweet, she doesn’t want to be a loser anymore!

Hyper Misao and Yuka Sakazaki agreed to include a 30 count outside the ring for their match. They used the extra time to fight around the room. Sakazaki rolled up Misao in one of the ring mats. Misao escaped and made it back to the ring on the 29th count. Another fight outside led to the girls finding a shopping cart and they pushed it into each other. This time they were both counted out. They asked for a rematch and Tetsuya Koda would only grant it if it was under 1 Count Pinfall rules due to time restraints. The match restarted and Sakazaki won with a Sliding Lariat.

Rika Tatsumi is building up momentum for her TOKYO Princess Title Match. She pinned Shoko Nakajima in her tag match today by escaping the Northern Lights Suplex and hitting the Missile Hips for the three count.

Yuki Kamifuku tried to distract Yuu by complimenting her new hairstyle. Kamifuku later said she would beat Yuu with a Sleeper Hold of her own. Yuu Chopped her to pieces and made her tap to the Katahajime.

Tokyo Joshi Pro’s resident ring announcer Yuki Aino announced at the start of the show she will be graduating from her role in April. However she is doing this so she can debut as a pro wrestler! Aino originally joined Tokyo Joshi to become a wrestler and was part of the same class as Maho Kurone. Unfortunately she gave up her plan when she was unable to balance wrestling training with her other studies. She stuck around to be the ring announcer and became friends with the rest of the roster. Watching her friends wrestle motivated her to get back to training at the end of last year and switch schools so she can juggle both correctly. She is now ready to debut at the 3rd March Korakuen Hall show teaming with Nodoka-oneesan against two unknown opponents.

The new ring announcer beginning in May is Sayuri Nanba. She also originally applied for a role on DDT’s AbemaTV program “DDT Thursday The NIGHT” but she was offered this gig instead.

2. Rika Tatsumi defeated Hikari with the Dragon Sleeper (7:13).
3. Shoko Nakajima & Rika Tatsumi defeated Maki Ito & Yuki Kamifuku when Nakajima pinned Ito with the Northern Lights Suplex (14:27).

5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Saki-sama & Azusa Christie (c) defeated Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan when Christie pinned Nodoka with the Christie Agape (13:52).
*V1 for NEO Biishiki-gun.

Saki-sama felt disappointed by BRAVE☆MATES after the main event. They raised her expectations then failed to reach them. Saki nominated Marika Kobashi to be one of the next challengers even though Kobashi lost her match today. Miyu Yamashita entered the ring and offered to team with Kobashi. She accepted and told everyone she wants to beat NEO Biishiki-gun at all costs.

Hyper Misao & Shoko Nakajima were teaming together today as representatives of the Tokyo Joshi Pro Moral Committee. Misao wanted to handle a serious problem within today’s society and also pro wrestling: bad courtesy showed by young people. This is where Yuki Kamifuku comes in. She was more interested in playing with her phone than wrestling in her match. She went around the ring taking selfies and pictures of the other girls while they wrestled. She also answered a phone call while waiting on the apron for a tag. Kamifuku’s partner Maki Ito was also given some attention by the committee. Misao called her the root of all evil.

Shinjuku FACE
432 Fans – Super No Vacancy

2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Nodoka-oneesan & Marika Kobashi when Mizuki pinned Nodoka with a Diving Foot Stomp (12:15).
3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Figure Four Leglock (10:29).

5. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita defeated Yuu (c) with the Crash Rabbit Heat (13:00).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,276th champion.
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima (c) defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Nakajima pinned Nonoko with a Diving Senton (17:02).
*V1 for Miraclians.

The combined size advantage of the Super Milk Combination was not enough to beat the Miraclians. They came close when they hit the W Oppai Ye on Shoko Nakajima but Yuka Sakazaki was there to make the save. From there the Apricots took over and wore down the challengers until Sakazaki got rid of Yuna Manase. Nakajima gave Nonoko a DDT and then won the match with a Diving Senton. The Apricots celebrated their first defence of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles until the Ito Respect Army came down to the ring. Maki Ito said even though she already has a match planned for 4th January she still wants Mizuki to get a tag title match on the same show. Ito claims that there are many members in the Ito Respect Army and one of them will be Mizuki’s partner on 4th January.

Two prizes were on the line in the match between Yuu and Miyu Yamashita. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and, more importantly, a spot in the main event TOKYO Princess Title match at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Yuu bruised Yamashita’s chests with Chops and threw her around the ring. In return Yamashita kicked back with all that she had. The High Kicks took their toll and soon Yuu was defeated by the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita wins the Iron Man Title and also goes on to face Reika Saiki for the Princess Title! It’s been a year and a half since she last held the Princess Title. She cannot wait to win it back. She also has to defend the Iron Man Title against Kazuki Hirata in DDT on 1st December. It will be the dance battle between Genghis Khan and TOKYO GO!

Saki-sama continues to pick on the weakest girls in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today Azusa Takigawa tried to stand up to her but was beaten with the Two Step Face Kick. Saki said the match was truly inappropriate from beginning to end. But she was willing to show mercy because there is some beauty in Takigawa. She offered Takigawa to join her side. Takigawa refused because she is chasing her dream and Saki-sama’s obsession with beauty does not fit with that goal. Saki didn’t care what Takigawa said, her offer would not be refused. Suddenly Yukio Saint Laurent appeared and he approached Takigawa. She tried to fight him off but Laurent injected a syringe into her neck, knocking her out. He and Saki-sama left the ring with Takigawa being carried over his shoulder. Saki promised that Takigawa will become a fine lady under her supervision. She reckons we will see the new Takigawa at the next Shin-Kiba 1st RING show.

Hyper Misao had her first match in over 10 and a half months, returning from a long absence after getting reconstructive surgery on her right ACL. She reintroduced herself as the hero to protect love and peace in Tokyo Joshi. She asked Rika Tatsumi to team up with her but Tatsumi turned her down. Misao put up a fight when she was put in a Figure Four Leg Lock but eventually gave up when Tatsumi used the move a second time. Misao said afterwards that she will not give up looking for a tag team partner. But until she finds one she will also focus on becoming a stronger singles wrestler.

After the Ito Respect Corps won their match, Ito demanded a Princess Tag Title shot for 4th January. She was interrupted by Sanshiro Takagi. He has another idea that he thinks is more suitable for Ito. On 4th January Maki Ito will face Danshoku Dino one on one! Takagi thinks it is the perfect match to determine how far Ito has advanced since she became a pro wrestler. Ito accepts the match. She thinks she is so cute that fighting Dino will awaken his love for women. She will then use her cuteness to crush Dino! Mizuki expressed disappointment because she wanted to team with Ito at the show. Ito promised to talk it over with her later.

Yuki Kamifuku tried to get over her fears of wrestling a zombie but her inexperience was her downfall. Maho Kurone didn’t have much trouble wrestling her and even got a few bites in too.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) unit introduced themselves to the audience at the start of the show. Hikari said she discovered wrestling when she was in junior high and wants to dedicate everything in her young life to take part in it. Hinano has nine years of training in judo and sambo. She wants to win a championship within one year of her debut. Raku will turn 20 years old on 5th December and is greeting her last days as a teenager with a smile. Miu is trying her best to be both an idol and a pro wrestler.

291 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Shoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Northern Lights Suplex (8:40).
2. Yuu & Marika Kobashi defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito when Yuu submitted Kobashi with the Katahajime (9:54).
3. Azusa Takigawa defeated Nodoka-oneesan with a Thrust Kick (9:20).
4. Saki-sama defeated Mizuki with the Modified Foot Choke (10:30).
5. Nonoko & Yuna Manase defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Maho Kurone when Manase pinned Kurone with the W Oppai Ye ().
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki (c) defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Jackhammer (15:27).
*V2 for Reika Saiki.

Reika Saiki had an answer for all of Rika Tatsumi’s offence. Saiki’s win came when she countered the Hip Attack into a Back Drop. From there Saiki hit the Shining Wizard and the Jackhammer to earn her second successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title. Saiki announced her next defence will be at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Miyu Yamashita came out to challenge her but Yuu came out too to do the same. Yamashita and Yuu agreed to fight each other with the winner getting the title shot against Saiki at Korakuen.

The Super Milk Combination are off to a good start by beating one half of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Part of their entrance includes a haka style dance. The W Oppai Ye is a tag team finisher where Nonoko & Yuna Manase sandwich the victim with two Body Attacks. Manase was impressed that she and Nonoko won a match without fighting each other. They are now confident they will win the tag titles on 23rd November.

After Saki-sama beat Mizuki she was challenged to a match by Azusa Takigawa. She earned her first win today but beating just anybody in Tokyo Joshi Pro isn’t enough. She must beat Saki-sama to prove herself! Saki admitted she doesn’t remember getting involved with Takigawa last month. That’s how little she means to her. If Saki-sama is a diamond, Takigawa is a stone on the roadside. If Saki-sama is the moon, Takigawa is a turtle. If Saki-sama is Vince McMahon running the WWE, Takigawa is Tetsuya Koda eating rice on his own with a key holder. She accepts the challenge and the match will take place on 23rd November.

Both Azusa Takigawa and Nodoka-oneesan were taking today’s match seriously. Neither wanted to be seen as the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi. Nodoka even revealed she was wearing training gear under her usual costume. But Takigawa proved to be more determined and she pinned Nodoka with a Thrust Kick to win her first ever singles match.

Sanshiro Takagi appeared to announce the next set of debuts for Tokyo Joshi. Earlier this year DDT and the Up Up Girls idol group set up auditions for an Up Up Girls wrestling unit. Four girls passed the audition and will have their debut matches at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. The girls are Miu (18 years old, Saitama), Raku (19 years old, Tokyo), Hikari (19 years old, Hokkaido) and Hinano (19 years old, Tokyo).

6. DDT 20th Anniversary Special Single Match That Danshoku Producer Wants To Show Everyone: KUDO defeated HARASHIMA with the Diving Double Knee Drop (18:43).
7. KO-D Openweight Title, DDT Extreme Title & Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – 3 Way Match: Daisuke Sasaki (E/c) defeated Konosuke Takeshita (K/c) and Ken Ohka (I/c) when Sasaki submitted Ohka with the Cross Facelock (21:46).
*V6 for Daisuke Sasaki. V8 for Konosuke Takeshita. Ken Ohka fails in V4. Daisuke Sasaki becomes the 25th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion! Daisuke Sasaki wins Ken Ohka’s 714,146 yen!

Three champions entered the main event. One would leave with two titles, one would leave without a belt and the odd one out would be doing alright actually. Konosuke Takeshita and Daisuke Sasaki already have a lot of history with each other over the KO-D Openweight Title. The wild card was Ken Ohka. Not only was he defending the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title but earlier in the week Sasaki stole his bank account details! Sasaki did it because he thinks his own DDT Extreme Title is more valuable so he’d rather win Ohka’s money instead of the Indy Jr. Title. So now Ohka was fighting for both his championship and his money. This was confirmed when Hisaya Imabayashi took in Ohka’s savings book along with the three title belts during the ring introductions. Alliances were made and broken all throughout the match. Takeshita had Sasaki set up for the finish when he went into position for a Power Bomb but Ohka cut him off with the Fire Spear. Ohka then rallied the crowd and waited for Sasaki to get up for the Fire Spear. It all went wrong and Sasaki countered the Spear into the Cross Facelock. Ohka pulled himself over to the ropes but Sasaki rolled him back into the middle of the ring. Ohka tapped out before Takeshita could break the hold. As a result, Sasaki is still the DDT Extreme Champion and is now the new Independent Jr. Champion! Oh, and he now also claims all 714,146 yen of Ken Ohka’s money!

Sasaki was then informed he will have to defend the Indy Jr. Title against Shiori Asahi in K-DOJO for their 15th October show in Korakuen Hall. Takeshita is still the KO-D Champion and the result counts as a successful title defence for him. His next defence will be on 22nd October at Korakuen against the Dramatic General Election winner or if he wins the election, an opponent of his choice. Sadly for Ohka, he leaves with nothing. Sasaki told Takeshita that their grudge hasn’t been settled yet. If the fans want to see that happen, vote for Sasaki! He was told to stop campaigning inside the ring because it is against the rules. Sasaki leaned away from his comments and said of course he doesn’t know when they will fight each other again. Sasaki ended the show with a message to everyone watching whether it was on AbemaTV, Samurai! TV, DDT UNIVERSE, in Japan and around the world. He is “Charisma” Daisuke Sasaki! You only have to remember his name. Mother Earth and the DDT ring will turn to the centre of DAMNATION!

One of the longest relationships in DDT’s 20 year history was revisited when HARASHIMA faced KUDO. They have been both tag partners and enemies throughout their careers. Plenty of kicks and Diving Knee Drops were on offer. HARASHIMA’s Somato was countered with KUDO using his own Double Knee Kick. KUDO went for the Diving Double Knee Drop aiming for the back of HARASHIMA’s head but HARASHIMA rolled out of the way. HARASHIMA climbed the ropes but KUDO kicked him off and left him to dangle upside down by his legs. KUDO then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop to the outside. HARASHIMA fought back as much as he could but couldn’t outkick KUDO. He finally fell down to a Buzzsaw Kick and was pinned with the Diving Double Knee Drop. In his post-match interview KUDO said he was greatful for HARASHIMA’s “special existence” because their matches inspire him. KUDO was also happy because his family was in the audience today and they got to see him wrestle. HARASHIMA was disappointed he lost but hopes his rivalry with KUDO will continue for another 21 or 22 years. He does not want his rivalry to end with a loss.

Entire homes were supposedly on the line for the Danshoku Dino Vs Super Sasadango Machine bout. It was a Loser Leaves House match where whoever lost would be forced to move out of their current home. Sasadango was accompanied by Muscle Sakai but Sakai quickly moved over to a laptop so he could show off a PowerPoint Presentation titled “Consideration On Traceability Of Masked Wrestlers In The Professional Wrestling Industry”. Sakai has been busy away from wrestling, balancing careers in both film making and the molding industry. He is so busy that it leaves him feeling sluggish. One of the problems relating to this is he lives a double life as Super Sasadango Machine. Sakai’s solution was to sell all rights of the Super Sasadango Machine gimmick to a company called CyberAdango to form a subsidiary called M&A.

The subsidiary will rent out the Sasadango gimmick to other wrestlers, which explains how Sakai and Sasadango could be seen together recently. Sakai then revealed that the massive rookie Yuki Ino is renting the Sasadango gimmick and is the person currently under the mask. Also part of the deal allows Sakai and Sasadango to still be recognised as one person so they will be fighting Dino two on one even though it is still officially a singles match. Finally, Sakai said his plan for the match was to poke Dino in the eyes and blind him with the Iron Claw. Sakai then put on his Sasadango gear and entered the match. His plan worked perfectly during the match until Ino pulled off his own Sasadango mask and tights to reveal Danshoku tights underneath! Ino gave Sakai the Lip Lock then threw him into Dino for the Danshoku Driver. The referee raised both Dino and Ino’s hands in victory even though Ino looked embarrased. Sakai was furious at Ino for betraying him. Ino admitted he switched sides when Dino gave him the Lip Lock during the match. In the post-match interview both Dino and Sakai ignored questions about if the match stipulation would be upheld.

Some miscommunication between Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie cost them their match against Soma Takao & Yasu Urano. Paulie’s Corner Splash to Takao missed and instead squashed Endo by mistake. Paulie was so concerned over Endo that he couldn’t fight out of Takao’s La Magistral Cradle and was pinned.

Ryuichi Sekine wanted to get his hands on Saki Akai but wound up getting blocked. Meanwhile Yukio Sakaguchi and Rocky Kawamura had a strike duel that ended in a stalemate when Sakaguchi’s High Kick met with Kawamura’s Straight Mix Punch. Akai hit a Diving Cross Body on Kawamura but he used the momentum to roll backwards on top of her for the pin.

Yuu spent the early part of the show being chased by other wrestlers who wanted the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. She found a room to hide in, ate some katsudon with chopsticks and took a nap afterwards. Yukinori Matsui entered the room and saw the chopstick were on top of Yuu’s chest. 1…2…3! The Disposable Chopsticks were now the champion! Royce Isaacs suddenly appeared and snapped the chopsticks in half with his Miracle Ass. Now he is the champion. Isaacs then went out to the ring to defend the belt in a Battle Royal. Sanshiro Takagi entered the match still wearing his suit from the earlier announcement at the start of the show. Matsuno Collection A.T. took part in the match instead of Gorgeous Matsuno. Antonio Honda distracted Isaacs with a story about “Gon, The Little Fox” mixed in with Lupin III called “Lupine III”. The trick worked, Honda poked Isaacs’s in the eyes and pinned him with a School Boy to win the title. Yoshihiko then pinned Honda to become champion. Kazuki Hirata grabbed Yoshihiko and used it to hit Yuni with. Hirata then pinned Yoshihiko with a Fire Thunder Driver to win the belt. Hirata went on to eliminate five opponents in quick succession by using his HIRATA GO! glasses to make them dance and drop their guards. Only Yuni was left and the kid pinned Hirata with a Hurricanrana to win the title and the Battle Royal! Yuni celebrated with Makoto Oishi who lifted him up on his shoulder. Oishi then betrayed Yuni and gave him a Backbreaker to win the belt from him! His moment of glory was cut short when Yuu returned. She flipped him over with a throw and dropped him with the Last Ride to regain her title. She was then chased away from ringside by more wrestlers. When Yuu was finally safe and alone, she had an interview and revealed that she does the Last Ride in dedication to the late Super Uchu Power. She was very happy to do it in a DDT Korakuen Hall show. Yuu said she loves the Iron Man Title the most in the world and wonders if there is anybody else who cherishes it as much as she does.

The show kicked off with an NωA musical performance. While they were singing, Yuu appeared with the Iron Man Title and she was chased around the ring by other wrestlers. When she escaped, the match went on as normal and NωA won. Shunma Katsumata & MAO cut off Kouki Iwasaki and focused their attacks on Mizuki Watase. MAO hit Watase with the Screw High Kick and Katsumata got rid of Iwasaki with a Lightning Spiral. Katsumata then pinned Watase with the Firebird Splash.

Diego rolled away from Daiki Shimomura’s Swanton Bomb then hit him with the VHS to win the dark match.

The DDT roster including wrestlers from DNA, BASARA, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Wrestling gathered in the ring for the announcement of the company becoming a member of CyberAgent group. Sanshiro Takagi was accompanied by the president of CyberAgent, Susumu Fujita. Takagi told everyone he is staying on as the company president and will continue to run DDT as normal. He brought up AbemaTV as a CyberAgent property that is influential among the younger generation. DDT can now use that to their advantage. With this new relationship, Takagi wants DDT to become the No. 1 pro wrestling company in the industry! Susumu admitted he was not a pro wrestling fan but enjoyed watching DDT’s Street Wrestling and Beer Garden shows. He even attended the Beer Garden show hosted by Danshoku Dino and Super Sasadango Machine and came away impressed by DDT’s vision of pro wrestling. He assures all of the fans that he does not want DDT to change at all. He wants to make DDT bigger of course but has faith in Takagi’s leadership to make DDT No. 1 in the future. Takagi then rallied the wrestlers group by group. DDT will make the next step. The DDT wrestlers cheered. DNA will make the next step. The DNA wrestlers cheered. BASARA will make the next step. The BASARA wrestlers cheered. Tokyo Joshi will make the next step. The Joshi wrestlers cheered. Ganpuro will make the next step. Ken Ohka cheered then realised he was the only Ganpuro wrestler in the ring.

Takagi reappeared at the end of the show to remind everyone he will continue to be DDT president and as president he will continue to enrich the pro wrestling world.

The schedule for the first ever D King Grand Prix was revealed. There will be 8 shows featuring tournament matches starting on 5th January in Shinjuku FACE with the final taking place at Korakuen Hall on 28th January.

DDT will be teaming up with Ring☆Dream once more to produce a 3rd wrestling show together on 16th December. Two new characters for the game based on DDT wrestlers will be unveiled at next month’s Korakuen show.

DDT will do two matches at the Tokyo Ramen Show 2017 on 26th October.

7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Reika Saiki defeated Yuka Sakazaki (c) with the Jackhammer (14:13).
*Yuka Sakazaki fails in V1. Reika Saiki becomes the 4th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

Reika Saiki is now the top girl of Tokyo Joshi Pro after becoming the new TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion! Fortune was on her side when she previously beat the champion Yuka Sakazaki in the final of the Tokyo Princess Cup earlier this month. Success came again when Saiki rolled away from Sakazaki’s Magical Girl Splash. She then hit two Shining Wizards and the Jackhammer to win the championship. Saiki said when she discovered her muscles and then discovered pro wrestling it was a dream combination for her.

In preparation for the confrontation between the Dragon Bombers and NEO Biishiki-gun, Rika Tatsumi has spent her days training her hips to become more powerful. After all, she was going to team with the Hip Attack master Shiro Koshinaka. The training paid off when Tatsumi pinned Saki-sama with the Hip Attack while Koshinaka and Maho Kurone kept the rest of the opposition at bay. Saki-nami protested by saying it was only a two count but fainted when she realised she lost.

Miyu Yamashita went into her match against Meiko Satomura with something to prove. Satomura wasn’t impressed with Yamashita when they last fought at “JUDGEMENT 2017” back in March. Yamashita tried her best but was put away with the Death Valley Bomb followed by a Sleeper Hold. After the match Satomura waited for Yamashita to stand back up before gesturing at her to come over. Yamashita slapped Satomura across the face and demanded a rematch. Impressed by her courage, Satomura honoured Yamashita for a good match and left.

Shoko Nakajima defeated Sojo Darling in Darling’s first match for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The two bonded over their costumes and were full of praise for each other afterwards. Nakajima called Darling an “amazing monster” and is excited to discover how many more exist overseas. If Darling travelled all the way to Japan then Nakajima thinks she can go wrestle abroad too. Darling said Nakajima is a wonderful athlete and her Northern Lights Suplex is a tremendous finishing move.

Yuu overcame the numbers disadvantage to beat Marika Kobashi and Nodoka-oneesan in an Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title defence. Yuu thanked the fans for supporting her as she achieved her dream of winning and defending the championship. She was interrupted by DDT Producer Danshoku Dino. He said he didn’t want to go near Tokyo Joshi Pro because he doesn’t like girls but he had to come here for business reasons. He told Yuu that the next scheduled defence of the Iron Man Title will be at DDT’s next Korakuen Hall show on 24th September in a Battle Royal. So if Yuu is still the champion she will have to be there. Both Kobashi and Nodoka tried to sneak pins on Yuu when Dino was finished but she escaped from both of them.

Azusa Takigawa and Maki Ito finally settled their grudge in an Idol Lumberjack Death Match. NωA and Cheer♥1 were the lumberjacks and they were all armed with Pico Pico Hammers to attack the wrestlers whenever they were outside the ring. Sanshiro Takagi was also there as the referee. Ito entered to a LinQ song but she demanded to cut it off because she was fired from the group. So she sang “I’m Not In Love Anymore” by Makihara Noriyuki for the rest of the entrance until Takigawa attacked her. The two fought out of the ring and ran away from the lumberjacks up to the entrance stage. Takagi followed them and hit both of them over the head with his Pico Pico Hammer to make them return to the ring. Ito put Takigawa in a Crab Hold but Takigawa reached the ropes. Ito pulled her away and changed the submission into an Elevated Crab Hold to make Takigawa give up. Ito told all the lumberjacks to go home because they weren’t needed anymore. They all threw their hammers at her.

Yuki Kamifuku came out for her debut match wearing sunglasses, a ten gallon hat and hot pants. She was pinned by Mizuki with the Cutie Special. In her backstage interview Kamifuku complained about being sore and tired. She also wanted to go drink some sake but was warned it is against the rules for Tokyo Joshi wrestlers do drink alcohol.

The TOKYO Princess Tag Team Title belts were shown off in public for the first time. A single elimination tournament will be held in September and October to determine the first champions. The 7 teams announced are:

Miraclians: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima

*V7 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Konosuke Takeshita overcame his toughest challenge yet to achieve his 7th defence of the KO-D Openweight Title! The grudge match against Tetsuya Endo was the headline attraction for DDT’s return to Sumo Hall. Last time the two fought to an hour long draw but this time, Takeshita was able to defeat Endo in just under 30 minutes. Endo did hit the Torture Rack Bomb, the Shooting Star Press and both versions of Tetsuya In The Sky but Takeshita kicked out of all of them. Endo also reversed a Tombstone Piledriver on the ramp during an outside attack. In return, Takeshita hit Lariats, Big Boots, Pump Up Knee Strikes, German Suplexes and the Blue Thunder Bomb but Endo kicked out of them. Finally, Takeshita crossed Endo’s arms over for one last German Suplex and that one brought an end to the match. Takeshita wanted to show good sportsmanship to Endo after the match but Endo spat in his face and was carried away from the ring by DAMNATION.

Takeshita thanked the fans for coming to Sumo Hall and supporting him. His victory speech was interrupted by the new DDT Producer, Danshoku Dino. Coming out wearing a peach colored suit jacket over his wrestling gear, Dino congratulated Takeshita and said that part of his new job is to come up with new challenges for the champion. Dino told Takeshita he will defend the KO-D Title on 24th September against another champion. Out came Ken Ohka with his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title! Takeshita accepted the challenge and wanted Ohka to put his title on the line too in a unification match, one on one. Dino looked surprised. He never said Takeshita and Ohka would be in a singles match. It’s going to be a 3 Way Match with a third champion involved. Daisuke Sasaki entered the ring with his DDT Extreme Title. He wasn’t happy with the idea but if it means getting revenge on Takeshita for beating Endo, then so be it. With that decided, everyone left Takeshita alone in the ring to finish the show closing speech. Five years ago, 17 year old Takeshita had his debut match in Budokan Hall. Fast forward to today and 22 year old Takeshita is making DDT grow bigger in both mind and body!

It was a new song but the same old story for Shigehiro Irie. He just can’t beat HARASHIMA. Irie and Kazusada Higuchi came out to Irie’s new entrance music “T2” (“Tachimukau Ver.2”) by Kinniku Shojo Tai. He even had the support of the band’s main vocalist Kenji Otsuki sitting at ringside for the match. But HARASHIMA had Naomichi Marufuji on his team and Marufuji kept Higuchi at bay with their Chop Battles. Irie did what he could to put away HARASHIMA but nothing worked. Irie readied himself for one last Beast Bomber but was cut off by Marufuji. Irie was then pinned after the Shiranui from Marufuji followed by the Somato by HARASHIMA. As the new KO-D Tag Team Champions celebrated, Irie went over to Otsuki and cried for forgiveness. Higuchi also apologised to Irie but Irie wouldn’t let him take the blame.

HARASHIMA & Marufuji’s celebration was then cut short by Dino, who introduced himself to Marufuji. Dino said he wants to provide a dream match for the next Tag Title defence and it will involve the two wrestlers who best represent DDT. Himself and Sanshiro Takagi! Dino also wants Marufuji to experience the kind of match only DDT can provide. So on 20th September, HARASHIMA & Marufuji will defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles against Dino & Takagi inside the Miyagi Iron Works for a Factory Pro Wrestling Match! Marufuji was taken aback by the announcement and referred to the NOAH president Masayuki Uchida at ringside for his opinion. “No problem!”, Uchida said. Welcome to DDT, Marufuji.

Daisuke Sasaki and Akito fought in a crazy Hardcore Submission Hair Vs Hair Match for the DDT Extreme Title. Akito came out with new wrestling gear but focused all of his attention to the task at hand. Sasaki meanwhile lived it up by walking to the ring with two blonde haired foreign women for his entrance. The match became dangerous in between the submissions when a table, ladder and chairs were all brought into the ring. Akito used the chairs to attack Sasaki by the legs. Sasaki hit back with a major move, placing Akito sitting on a chair outside the ring then jumping off the ladder from inside the ring for the Super Diving Elbow! Back in the ring Sasaki laid Akito down inside the ladder and hit a chair-assisted Diving Elbow from the top rope. Akito returned fire by putting Sasaki through the table from the ladder. He put Sasaki in the Scorpion Lock but let it go when Mad Paulie jumped onto the apron for a distraction. Sasaki swung a chair at Akito but he ducked and Paulie took the shot instead. Akito tried to give Sasaki the Double Knee Buster but it was countered into a DDT onto the chair. Sasaki then found a guitar and smashed it over Akito’s head. Finally, Sasaki made Akito submit to La Mistica Cross Facelock with a chair wrapped around Akito’s head pulling back for extra damage.

Sasaki took joy from slowly cutting off pieces of Akito’s hair with clippers until Akito grabbed an electric shaver and shaved off the remaining hair himself.

Company power versus romantic freedom were on the line when Sanshiro Takagi and Danshoku Dino fought in a Weapons Rumble. If Dino won he would be given complete control of booking DDT shows. If Takagi won then Dino would have to go find a romantic partner and get married. The early weapons brought into the match included a barbed wire baseball bat, a vibrating massager also wrapped in barbed wire which Dino stuffed behind Takagi’s shorts, a gigantic marriage document which Takagi forced Dino to sign and Takagi’s Rolex watch which Dino smashed to pieces with the baseball bat. The next “weapon” turned out to be Kendo Kashin but he was immediately attacked by Mitsuo Momota with Chikara accompanying him. Their planned match at 6:30am never took place so DDT decided to begin the match here and now. It was called off when Dino and his friends assaulted the referee assigned to the Kashin Vs Momota match. Kashin promoted the next All Japan show in Sumo Hall to be held on 27th August and then left. Dino’s friends were then distracted by the appearance of the Macho 29 dance troupe so that got rid of them. Dino then had an old video of a drunk Takagi stripping naked during a fan event play over the arena screen. Takagi had a mental breakdown until his secret weapon appeared. It was Dino’s mother, Yaeko! She entered the ring and gave Dino the Lip Lock! Takagi then hit Dino with a Lariat and the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Dino kicked out. Then it was time for Dino’s secret weapon, Takagi’s wife Kayoko Takagi! She hit a Moonsault on Takagi. The end finally came when Dino delivered the Lip Lock and the Danshoku Driver, a Gotch-Style variation for extra insult. Dino is now in charge of DDT!

Dino celebrated winning what must now be the most important match of his career. Takagi tried to convince Dino to go and get married anyway. Marriage can be nice, just look at him and Kayoko. After he said this Kayoko gave him the cold shoulder and left the ring. Takagi then changed his mind and said it’s probably alright for Dino to stay single for a little while longer. He also thanked Yaeko for appearing. She received cheers from the audience as she left the ring. Moving on to other business, Takagi asked Dino if he realises how much power he now holds in DDT. Dino said he was prepared otherwise he would never have asked for it. Takagi accepted the answer and promoted Dino into the DDT Producer. Takagi then announced he was going to retire but quickly admitted he was lying. Amon Tsurumi came in to congratulate Dino for becoming the Producer. With Takagi, Amon and Dino all working together DDT will become a more interesting place. Takagi then fired Tsurumi! DDT only needs two people to captain the ship so Tsurumi’s position as General Manager is no longer needed. Dino agreed and said in English “You are fired!” Tsurumi tried to complain but was pulled out of the ring by a bunch of DDT wrestlers and carried away from ringside.

The combined powers of Dick Togo, Yasu Urano and Antonio Honda telling his bedtime story were not enough to take the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from Shuten-dōji. Honda was put away with the combo of Yukio Sakaguchi’s Right Knee Of God, Masahiro Takanashi’s Takatonic and KUDO’s Diving Double Knee Drop. The champions declared they will drink until the morning to celebrate. Sakaguchi also sent a message to Togo. If Togo wants a match anytime, Sakaguchi will be there to kill him!

The 4 Way Tag Team match turned into a free for all. Kaz Hayashi & Keisuke Ishii hit stereo Planchas onto Yankee Two Kenju. Then Mike Bailey & MAO jumped off of the same top corner together to hit Moonsaults onto everyone outside the ring. Bailey & MAO then singled out Soma Takao but couldn’t catch the guy. Takao rolled away from Bailey’s Shooting Star Double Knee Drop then avoided MAO’s Cannonball 450. Kotaro Suzuki then grabbed MAO and did Takao’s Endless Waltz for a few nearfalls. Takao then took over the Endless Waltz for some more nearfalls until he finally pinned down MAO long enough to get a three count. Suzuki revealed that he got permission from Takao before the match to use the move so it is now officially part of his moveset. Takao hopes he and Suzuki will tag together more in the future. Bailey & MAO also expressed a desire to team up more often in DDT. On a sidenote, Takao is now 9-0 at “PETER PAN” events.

Shunma Katsumata and Jiro Kuroshiro provided a handsome looking change of pace with their singles match. Katsumata made his entrance on a stage gondola with the rest of NωA throwing autographed balls into the audience. Kuroshio then spent the entirety of his entrance frolicking through the crowd. His big move of the match was a Lionsault out of the ring onto Katsumata standing on the ramp. Katsumata got a nearfall with the Firebird Splash and also used his own version of the Ikemen Clutch for a nearfall. But Kuroshio got the victory by locking in the real Ikemen Clutch for the three count. Katsumata and Kuroshio embraced after the match. Katsumata said he regrets not being able to grasp his big opportunity today but he has no hard feelings over the result. Kuroshio said he felt lucky to get the match today and he thanked DDT for giving him their support.

In order to win the brand new KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles, a special battle plan was necessary to succeed. Super Sasadango Machine had such a plan ready for his team. First he held his PowerPoint presentation, “Reasons Why We Cannot Stop Wrestling”. Short answers, it’s because wrestlers feel a sense of accomplishment when they win. But wrestling is mostly an individual competition and when you are not the champion it is not as fun. When Tag Team Titles are introduced it increases the variety of ingredients to make tastier dishes. So he approves of a 10-Man Tag Title being created. for his battle plan, Kazuki Hirata is the target. Sasadango wants the audience to applaud Hirata so much that he will become deliriously happy. Then LiLiCo can sneak in and pin him with a School Boy. The plan didn’t work and Hirata kicked out of the School Boy. Later, Joey Ryan overpowered almost the entire opposition with his dick strength, flipping everybody away except for LiLiCo. She held on, forced Ryan to grab her crotch and used her power to flip him over. Hirata came back in to dance to his cover of “TOKYO GO!” until Ken Ohka hit him with the Fire Spear to win the match. So the first champions are Makoto Oishi, LiLiCo, Lady Beard, Super Sasadango Machine & Ken Ohka! Sasadango said backstage that the team are open to challenges from anybody as long as they come to DDT.

DDT’s new big lad Yuki Ino was the focus in the opening match for the main show. His power overwhelmed Yuki Ueno and he also went toe to toe with Naomi Yoshimura. He had no problem teaming with Kouki Iwasaki while Ueno & Yoshimura had a moment of miscommunication that almost cost them the match. Ueno’s Dropkick hit Yoshimura by mistake and Ino capitalised with a Spear to Ueno and a Back Drop to Yoshimura. Ino went for another Spear but Yoshimura sut him off with a Lariat and pinned the new rookie with the Shonenba. Ueno was impressed by Ino’s strength but Yoshimura wasn’t. He doesn’t see what the big deal with Ino is and why he was given the spotlight.

The Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda has the face the wrath of his entire roster because he had to enter their Battle Royal as the defending Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. He tried to act tough but was easily beaten up by Cherry. When Nodoka-oneesan came out and Cherry fought her, Koda backed off to the corner and tried to stay out of the way. That backfired when Nonoko was thrown into the corner and she squashed him. Nodoka-oneesan then pinned Koda to become the champion. Her reign was ended by Mizuki with the Cutie Special. Mizuki held on to the belt until she was in the final two with Yuu. Fifteen years ago when Yuu was a kid, she tried to win the title as part of a fan contest and failed. But today, Yuu accomplished her goal and tapped out Mizuki to become the Iron Man Champion!

The All DNA team were victorious in the pre-show 8-Man Tag. The veterans Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Hoshitango came close to winning it for their side but their pins kept getting cut off. Rekka, Diego & Daiki Shimomura wiped out the opposition with Planchas then Mizuki Watase pinned Masato Kamino with the Back Drop.

When the doors opened at 2:00pm that afternoon, the first match of the day began. Gota Ihashi was put into a special 5-match Gauntlet series to be held all around the building. Plus he would be defending the King Of Dark Title so there he had many opportunities ahead to pass the cursed title to someone else. In fact he did it immediately outside Sumo Hall to his first opponent Dai Suzuki. Ihashi pinned Suzuki in 36 seconds and Suzuki rolled down the stairway with the title belt. Even though Ihashi is now free from dark match hell, he still had to complete his series so he move into a restroom for match number two against Gorgeous Matsuno. They fought over to a balcony where Matsuno used a tarp rope to attempt the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow. That obviously didn’t work and Ihashi leapt on top of him for the three count. Ihashi had to go down to the lobby and interrupt a DAMNATION autograph session for Match #3 against Mad Paulie. They moved over to the ring where Ihashi ran the length of ringside to do a Lariat. Paulie countered it with a Lou Thesz Press, got the three count and went back to the autograph table. An exhausted Ihashi looked around the halls for his first of two mystery opponents and found Rocky Kawamura. He put on a pair of boxing gloves and sparred with Kawamura until he got knocked out and pinned. Possibly dazed and confused or just by being a pervert, Ihashi found the women’s locker room and entered it. Saki Akai and Cherry ran out screaming but one person walked out of the shower and stayed. It was Lingerie Muto! He attacked Ihashi with shampoo, gave him a Dragon Screw and hit the Shining Wizard to end the match. Ihashi finishes the series with two wins and three losses.

During the ending credits, Akito sadly showed off his new bald head, Takagi was slapped down by Kayoko then their two daughters did standing Moonsaults onto him and Amon Tsurumi was seen pleading for his job back.

Suwama, Ultimo Dragon, Hideki Suzuki and Abdullah Kobayashi will all compete at the 22nd October show in Korakuen Hall. This is the same event where the Top 20 wrestlers in the Dramatic General Election will be booked.

One of the trends DDT is following as part of its 20th Anniversary is to return to venues that housed their events as they grew. One of the venues is Shibuya Club ATOM where DDT will have a special nostalgia show on 13th September. Three matches are announced so far. Takeshita, Akito & Poison Sawada JULIE take on NωA. Takagi, Dino, Muscle Sakai and Ohka will fight in a 4 Way Match. Lastly, Shuten-dōji face HERO!, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba.
