Teaming with Takeshita (2013-2016)Edit

In 2013, Endo began teaming with fellow rookie Konosuke Takeshita, teaming with him in a KO-D Tag Team Championship number one contenders match also featuring Kudo and Yasu Urano, losing to the Golden Lovers (Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega).[6] On January 13, 2014, Endo and Takeshita again faced the Golden Lovers in a number one contenders match, this time going to a time limit draw, making the match for the championships at Sweet Dreams on January 26 a three-way. Endo and Takeshita unsuccessfully challenged champions Yuko Miyamoto and Isami Kodaka, with the Golden Lovers winning the match and the championships.[7] On July 13, Endo won his first championship in DDT, teaming with Takeshita and Antonio Honda as Happy Motel to defeat Shuten Dōji (Kudo, Masa Takanashi and Yukio Sakaguchi) to win the KO-D 6 Man Tag Team Championships.[8] Happy Motel dropped the championships back to Shuten Dōji on July 20 in a triple threat match also featuring Team Dream Futures (Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie and Soma Takao).[9] Endo competed in the KO-D Openweight Championship Number One Contenders Tournament, defeating partner Takeshita in the semi-finals on August 24,[10] but losing to Keisuke Ishii in the final.[11] On September 28, Endo and Takeshita captured the KO-D 6 Man Tag Team Championships, defeating the Golden Lovers.[12] The duo successfully defended the championships for 6 months, defeating Shuten Doji (Kudo and Masa Takanashi),[13] Team Dream Futures (Keisuke Ishii and Shigehiro Irie),[14] Makoto Oishi and Shiori Asahi [15] and Kudo and Yukio Sakaguchi[16] before dropping the belts to Daisuke Sekimoto and Yuji Okabayashi on February 15.[17] On September 13, Endo and Takeshita unsuccessfully challenged the Golden Storm Riders (Kota Ibushi and Daisuke Sasaki) for the KO-D Tag Team Championships.[18] Endo received his first opportunity at the KO-D Openweight Championship on December 13, unsuccessfully challenging Isami Kodaka.[19] After the KO-D Tag Team Championships were vacated due to Kota Ibushi being sidelined with a cervical disc herniation, a tournament was set up to crown new champions, won by Endo and Takeshita after they defeated Shigehiro Irie and Yuji Okabayashi in the final on December 23.[20] On December 29, Endo and Takeshita competed in a special mixed tag team match, teaming with Stardom's Io Shirai to defeat Shuten Doji (Kota Umeda and Yukio Sakaguchi) and Kyoko Kimura.[21] Endo and Takeshita made their first successful defence of the tag team championships on January 16, defeating Isami Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu,[22] but lost the championships to Damnation (Shuji Ishikawa and Daisuke Sasaki) on March 23[23] and unsuccessfully challenged them in a rematch on April 24.[24] Endo participated in the 2016 King Of DDT tournament, making it to the semi-finals before being eliminated by eventual winner Shuji Ishikawa.[25]

At the same time, Takeshita offered a handshake as a sign of respect for his longtime friend. Endo pushed Takeshita away, taking the DAMNATION T-shirt instead, attacking Takeshita, joining DAMNATION and turning heel for the first time in his career.
