Something tells me this wasn’t a moment of respect to Masa. Credit: DDT

With the world (well, parts of it) returning to normal, it was time to say goodbye to the DDT TV Show. They went out with a bang, though, delivering two big title challenges. Was it a newsworthy show or was the status quo retained? Time to find out.

DDT TV Show Episode 7 (20/6/20) Review

The DDT TV Show has fans! Well, I assume it always had fans, but the fans are now in the building, watching from real seats and making real noise. Yes, they’re not quite at the stage of selling the place out, but this show was a wee slice of normality, and it was nice to see.

Unless things take a turn for the worse in Japan, this will be the last DDT TV Show to take place in an empty arena. It’s the end of an era, but probably not one that deserves much in the way of celebration. We can say that I think DDT have dealt with it all rather brilliantly, and it will be interesting to see if any of the tricks they’ve picked up along the way will continue to be of use in front of fans.

DDT Wrestle Peter Pan (6/6/20) Review

The doors might be locked, but DDT is still going to give us a Peter Pan, and, in a totally original idea, it’s too big for one day. Our first slice of that cake was the more, em, over the top one? I think that’s fair to say when you take the main event into account. However, if you’re not down for that, you’re probably watching the wrong company.

One hell of a trio. Credit: DDT

Hey everyone, after a week off it’s time to get back to the joys of rambling about pro-wrestling. This has been a tough time for more reason than one, and it isn’t something that I’ll be able to put behind me easily, but I want to reiterate that be you old friend or total stranger, the need to talk is common to us all, and I’m very easy to contact.

Anyway, let’s move on from the serious stuff and go find out what’s happening in DDT.

DDT TV Show Episode 1 (2/5/20) Review

I wouldn’t mess with this cunt. Credit: DDT

DDT is back! You can’t keep a bunch of goofs down for long, so it’s no surprise that they’re returning behind closed doors to give us what they’re promising will be a weekly television show. Is that smart? No, probably not. However, if they’re going to do it, I’m going to watch, and as I’ve said before, no-one is better suited for dealing with weird times than DDT.

DDT One Chance Friday (28/2/20) Review

Not even the weirdest thing to happen on this show. Credit: DDT

With coronavirus hitting Japan, DDT were forced decided to cancel a bunch of their shows. However, being the lovely folks they are, they still wanted to give the fans something to enjoy, so have put together a series of closed door events at the DDT Dojo. It would have been easy for them to pack these with filler matches, but they’ve actually put together some cool little cards which combined with the unique atmosphere was enough to draw me in.
