Keisuke Ishii beat DDT Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion Masa Takanashi at 1:32 PM JST to win the title. Ishii wins the title for the 2nd time and becomes, by my count, the 907th DDT Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion.
Masa Takanashi beat DDT Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion Keisuke Ishii at 1:34 pM JST to win the title. Takanashi wins the title for the 3rd time and becomes, by my count, the 908th DDT Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion.
Kota Ibushi & KUDO beat Hikaru Sato & Daisuke Sasaki in 18:23. KUDO pinned Sasaki.
Shuji Ishikawa beat KO-D Openweight Champion Dick Togo in 31:18 to win the title. Ishikawa wins the title for the 2nd time and becomes the 36th KO-D Openweight Champion. And so Togo will not retire from DDT as champion next month. Next up for the title: TBA, but both Takao Soma & GENTARO have “Money In The Bank” shots they can use anytime. But as for now the title is headed to Union Pro.
The late event, Union Pro’s, is, as of this post, in progress. Results when they become available.
