AWESOME!  Last I heard was that Yatsu was getting his leg amputated and the head of DDT was visiting him in the hospital.  I'm glad he's healthy enough to wrestle now.

His new leg allows him to wrestle, does stuff other prosthetics can't do.

Honestly, this looks pretty good! Not only a good card that can produce good matches, but the booking actually makes sense, from top to bottom. If you grabbed an AJPWTV subscription an had to pay for May just for the CC finals, well, it's nice that you get this card as well.

AJPW news

I think Jake Lee will want to keep the current Triple Crown as is if he wins.

Something in the news about Suwama and TJPW's Yuki Kamifuku,  they both share interests in driving and motorcycles.

CyberFight news

The group Kongo of NOAH will face DDT dudes at the CyberFight Fest 2021 show. Kenoh vs Takagi are the respective leaders 

The 3 title matches for the CyberFight Fest 2021 theme is veterans at the top.

Japan's COVID-19 state of emergency will be extended to end of May. Also Aichi and Fukuoka are included now. Spectators at large events will be allowed with a cap of 5,000 or 50 percent of venue capacity.

The Japanese government is also set to extend a quasi-state of emergency for Saitama, Chiba, Kanagawa, Ehime and Okinawa prefectures to the end of May and add Hokkaido, Gifu and Mie. Miyagi, which has seen a fall in coronavirus cases will be removed from the SOE.

Watched a bit of DDT's Max Bump show from Tuesday mostly for Saki Akai vs. Chris Brookes. Brookes tried to bully Saki into getting really into the match to the point she threw a really, really fucking good punch (the woman on commentary immediately shouted "GUH PUNCHI" which made me smile). The problem with this match and all matches like it is for it to work, it's gotta be real stiff/tight and this was not with a few exceptions. I appreciate what they went for (Saki being a tough out and pushing Brookes after Chris initially took her lightly) but it just didn't work because most of it was so light, there's no crowd to play into it, and the ringside camera was like a foot away from their weaker strikes. Saki keeps improving. Brookes is good at what he does. And, generally speaking, this is how most intergender matches should be worked if there is a size/skill gap like there is here but with the need for tightness. Fun but flawed match. I also enjoyed Kenoh coming out and shitting on DDT by the sounds of it. 

Looking forward to Cyberfight Festival. As far as money wrestling goes, they've done a good job of building up the different brands. I think NOAH has benefitted the most but tbh I would only watch the odd NOAH match prior to the Lidet buyout. Why isn't Endo on the show though? Could be in the battle royal but brother deserves more than that. Think all the top matches will be fun but I'm probably looking forward to 4 & 5 the most.

I expected most of the card to be Six-Man Tags, since there are three big title matches on the show and all will go long presumably, but Match 2 is completely unnecessary, You could have that on any random NOAH show. And a 14-Man tag? Do we really need Haoh, Nioh and Tadasuke in there? Just scrap those three and three of the DDT guys and this would look much better. At least we get a small taste of the Nakamura/Sakaguchi confrontation I was hoping for.

Match 4 is looking the best to me out of all the matches.

Let's hope this show can even take place at this point.

Super Sasadango Machine and a very reluctant Danshoku Dieno challenged Sugiura-Gun to a tag match at Cyberfight Festival during the DDT Tag League Night 1 show today.

Honda-Brookes vs Akiyama-Oishi was fun. Akiyama facing off with long time members of DDT has been great.

Swapping Hino and Takao would've been perfect but this is still good.

Are they really not going to delay the show though? I can't imagine the cost or running the Saitama Super Arena and then not being able to sell any tickets to recoup that... Is a change of venue likelier than a delay?

The show will continue as is but possible limits on crowd size. Saitama is under quasi-emergency rules, also it's next month and the show is not under any current SOE that expires at the end of May.

CyberFight: The following people below are the respective aces of their brands regardless of who are the top champions

Konosuke Takeshita is the ACE of DDT.

Kaito Kiyomiya is the ACE of NOAH.

Miyu Yamashita is the ACE of TJPW.

Of course I haven't mentioned who are the Rivals, the Strongest. But some other day.
