3a. Osamu Namiguchi defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Fisherman Buster (5:34).
4. Ken Ohka defeated Bad Tension TAMAGAWA with the Spear Of Fire (15:00).
Ken Ohka and Bad Tension TAMAGAWA got all of the ill will out of their systems in today’s main event. The match took place to motivate TAMAGAWA and stop him from cheating. However, at one point he got desperate and took out brass knuckles. Ohka was able to convince TAMAGAWA not to use them and the match continued. The two were reduced to tears as they traded blows back and forth until Ohka won with the Spear Of Fire.
Ken Ohka Vs Osamu Namiguchi will take place at Ganbare☆Wrestling 5 at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring on 26th December. Ohka has called the match Armagedoon Final Battle!
Osamu Namiguchi came out on top in the Handicap Match by submitting Gorikiko. Yumehito Imanari said he wasn’t finished fighting and demanded a one on one match with Namiguchi immediately. Namiguchi won that match too.
Survival Tobita was demolished by the wild creature known as J-Soul Pandita III. Ohka came to Tobita’s aid wondering how this could have happened. Tobita said Pandita is too strong and he himself may have to retire as a fraud. Ohka told Tobita there is only one way he can defeat the monster. Turn into a cyborg!

Moscow Mossovet Theatre
3. Ilya Malkin defeated Masa Takanashi with the Harpoon.
6. IWF Title: Ivan Markov (c) defeated Isami Kodaka with the Locobomb.
*V? for Ivan Markov
Isami Kodaka and Masa Takanashi were in Russia during the weekend wrestling for the Independent Wrestling Federation. While Takanashi was facing different members of the roster, Kodaka was right in the thick of it with the IWF Champion, Ivan Markov. On Night 1 the two faced each other with the title on the line. The match was turned into a Hardcore match by request of Markov after both of them brought in chairs. Despite making Markov bleed heavily with a broken seat piece, Kodaka eventually lost to the champion. After the match, Ronnie Crimson ran into the ring to attack Markov but Kodaka came to the rescue and ran Crimson away.

Thanks go out to @IamCorvaX for sending me the results.

*V5 for Danshoku Dino.
6. Antonio Honda & Daisuke Sasaki defeated HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano when Honda pinned Urano with the Diving Fist Drop (17:26).
It was Title Vs Argentinian Pride over in Omori today. Danshoku Dino had his annual Omori World Title defence against the winner of last year’s Battle Royal, Hoshitango. Dino declared that a victory over his opponent would mean Argentina would become a gay country. Dino went on to beat Hoshitango. He then wondered if he could turn Omori into a gay town. Gurukun Mask came out to defend his town as the No. 1 Contender for the championship. Dino rendered him helpless with a Lip Lock, dropped him with the Danshoku Driver and then tried to undress him before he escaped.
Makoto Oishi was absent from the show for unknown reasons. He was replaced by the mysterious Ji Utan in the Battle Royal. Utan, who wrestled just like Oishi, made it all the way to the final two but fell to the hometown hero Gurukun Mask. The winner now has to wait a year until DDT returns to Tokyo JR Omori Station so he can challenge for the Omori World Title.
Keisuke Ishii and Shigehiro Irie wrestled in Omori just hours before they travelled to Sumo Hall for today’s All Japan show. Unfortunately for them, they failed to win the All Asia Tag Team Titles from Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki.
A wrestling music quiz for the crowd took place during intermission. When “Grand Sword” played over the speakers there was a loud “Kobashi” chant.

9. Get The Glory! Tournament – Final: Shuji Ishikawa defeated Isami Kodaka with the Splash Mountain (13:26).
Union celebrated its 8th Anniversary plus its recent change to an independent promotion by holding a one night tournament featuring its home wrestlers. Shuji Ishikawa won the Get The Glory Tournament, defeating Isami Kodaka in the final. Naomi Susan said the final was worthy of being a title match and she now wants Union to create its own championship in time for their Shunjuku FACE show on 11th December. Ishikawa thanked the fans for supporting Union and promises they will be around for the 9th Anniversary, 10th Anniversary, 15th Anniversary, 20th Anniversary, 25th Anniversary, 30th Anniversary, 40th Anniversary and the 100th Anniversary.
At the beginning of the show, Isami Kodaka mentioned he will be travelling to Russia tomorrow. He and Masa Takanashi will be wrestling in the IWF this weekend. It is the same promotion that Union visitors Ivan Markov and Ronnie Crimson came from. Kodaka will be facing Markov for the IWF Championship and he hopes he will become a Triple Crown Champion by holding the IWF, KO-D Tag Team and BJW Tag Team Titles all at the same time.
Mio Shirai’s harem of Idea Pocket idols is growing. Shirai, Menso~re Oyaji and Mitomi Masayuki each had an idol in their corner and battled each other to win all three. Mio won the match and the idols expressed relief that they were now with her instead of any of the men. Mio was delighted and said she wants to attract more and more flirty Divas over to Union.
Tomoya Kawamura said he wanted to do the Sling Blade like Hiroshi Tanahashi during his debut match but realised he couldn’t do it because he is still immature as a wrestler. He also revealed he originally had a tryout with DDT and during that tryout he showed off his Yoda impersonation from Star Wars Episode II. His impersonation is from a scene where Yoda warns Obi-Wan about Anakin turning to the Dark Side, if you must know.
