Dramatic Dream Team (DDT) has done their hardest to put out shows despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this optimism and determination, a recent State of Emergency order has put many shows in crisis. One of the major shows in the line of sight being their own “Peter Pan 2020” in Saitama Super Arena in June, while not canceled many shows around it have been.
In the meantime, they have been dealing with the currently canceled shows by running them as No-People shows. Though due to this new batch of cancelations it appears that the promotion has decided to change mindsets due to the fact that the current situation doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon. And as such in their post, they announced that they will be doing alternate programming to make up for the canceled shows.
The programming will be taking the form of a Weekly Show with No People. And will start with the show MAX BUMP 2020 on April 12th at 8 am Eastern Standard Time. One of the larger shows to have been canceled.
The main matches announced for the card are Masato Tanaka defending the KO-D title against Yukio Sakaguchi, Nautilus defending the KO-D Tag titles against Moonlight Express, and Tetsuya Endo facing off against Kazusada Higuchi. The last match on that card having implications for Saitama Super Arena as if Higuchi beats Endo he obtains the Right to Challenge at Saitama Super Arena Sword that Endo currently holds. Leading to if Sakaguchi and Higuchi both win their respective matches then the Peter Pan 2020 main event will be Eruption vs Eruption.
Interestingly enough, this is not DDT’s first time running a weekly show as two years ago they ran a show called Maji Manji on a weekly basis. Eventually, that show was phased out and the name was reused for more special events. So while this is done under unfortunate circumstances they are not going in blind.
