ProductionEdit

BackgroundEdit

In 2008, DDT set a goal of promoting a show in the Ryōgoku Kokugikan. Since 2009, DDT began annually producing shows in the Ryōgoku Kokugikan held in the summer, becoming DDT premier annual event and the biggest event in the independent circuit of Japanese wrestling. The first show ended up being a financial success with the promotion selling almost 9,000 tickets, leading DDT to announce a second show in the following year in the Ryōgoku Kokugikan. Leading to the event, Kota Ibushi was scheduled to face Naomichi Marufuji in a match. However the match had to be changed, due to Ibushi being sidelined with an shoulder injury. It was announced that Kenny Omega would replace Ibushi in his match. Because of this, Omega had to vacate the Nihonkai Six Man Tag Team Championship he was holding with Mr. #6 and Riho since June 13,[3] and Great Kojika was declared champion on July 20 so that he could defend the title at Ryōgoku Peter Pan 2010.

StorylinesEdit

The two were originally supposed to face each other in April 2009, but Marufuji was sidelined with an injury that took him out of action for the rest of that year.

In November 2009, Yoshiaki Yago left DDT, when the DDT roster trapped him in the locker room, in order for him to not never for KO-D Openweight Championship again due to being considered very dangerous. Several months later, an unknown wrestler by named Yago Aznable, won a contract in a Battle Royal/Ladder match to join DDT when the contract fell into his arms as he was entering the ring. Afterwards, there doubts on his real identity, leading him to reveal himself to be the returning Yoshiaki Yago. Shortly after, he was joined by Michael Nakazawa, starting a feud with Sanshiro Takagi, who wanted Yago to leave the promotion. Yago would be joined by DJ Nira and later turned on Nakazawa. They would convinced Hoshitango to join them, leading him to rename himself to MA Hoshitango. The Gundam Gang gained was joined by a new member, who was revealed to be Gentaro. After seeing his errors, Nakazawa joined Takagi and the two were joined by Takagi's partner Munenori Sawa, leading to a Captain's Fall No Disqualification match for the event, where each team had a captain and the match would end when the captain of a team was pinned or submitted. Leading to the event, Takagi gave the leadership of their team to Michael Nakazawa after handing down the helmet of his RX-78 Gundam costume, signifying a change of leadership.
