DDT D-王 Grand Prix (22/11/20) Review

Getting a bit of bragging in. Credit: DDT

It’s D-王 time! DDT’s annual tournament may not have blown me away with the line-up (where’s Saki?), but I guess I’m willing to forgive that slight and enjoy it. They certainly packed the opening night, treating Korakuen to a load of big matches.

DDT TV Show Episode 12 (14/11/20) Review

Booooo! Credit: DDT

The D-Oh is getting ever closer, but before we get to that, it was time for Episode 12 of DDT TV. It was another chance for Eruption to step up to the main event and continue their dominant run with the trios titles. That’s what happened, right?

DDT has returned to Korakuen Hall and opened up the doors to their adoring public. Is it perhaps too early for them to be doing this? Hm, maybe, but that’s not really for me to say. Instead, I’m going to sit back and enjoy some new wrestling from one of my favourite companies.

Miyako Matsumoto vs Chikara: Wrestling Can Be Anything

Everyone had a lovely time! Credit: Gake

I have long been a supporter of the idea that wrestling can be whatever you want it to be. Whether it’s the Marvel-esque crash and bang of New Japan main events, the art-house genius of Gatoh Move or whatever the fuck it is WWE is up to, wrestling’s beauty comes from its ability to be twisted into any form.
