On August 12th, during a Nico Nico live broadcast, the four successful applicants were put through a final audition round. After demonstrating their "appeal" and singing, they went through a physical endurance test. As a group, they did several floor exercises, went head to head with a female pro-wrestler, and performed "Uppercut" to prove their strength and stamina.
Near the end of the broadcast, DDT Wrestling founder Takagi Sanshiro announced all four applicants successfully completed the final round of auditions and the "trainee" would be removed from their name. In addition to their group being officially announced, so was their first single titled "Upperkick!". This song will be considered another version of "Uppercut!". Although the intro and many of the words are similar to each other, the new version has a "wrestler" feel to it, rather than the "boxer" theme of the original version.
