1. Crusher Takahashi defeated Survival Tobita with a Texas Cloverleaf (6:29).
2. Yumehito Imanari Vs Bad Tension TAMAGAWA ended in a Double KO (13:36).
3. Osamu Namiguchi & Kazuhiko Ogasawara defeated Ken Ohka & Shota when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanakira-N (?:??)

One month away from their final battle and final match in Ganbare☆Wrestling, Ken Ohka and Osamu Namiguchi faced off again in tag team action. Namiguchi & Kazuhiko Ogasawara proved too strong for Ohka & Shota in the main event. Namiguchi told Ohka he still had to pay his dues. He called Ganpuro a waste organisation and he is ready to throw it out onto the scrapheap. Ohka said he is serious when it comes to Ganpuro and he dreams the promotion will become a major organisation. He is absolutely sure he will not lose to Namiguchi.

Shota was the ring announcer and time keeper for the show, which explains the lack of detail with some of the results.

Yumehito Imanari and Bad Tension TAMAGAWA fought their hearts out until their bodies just could not take it anymore. The match ended when they were trading Elbow Strikes while both yelling “I will do my best! Ganbare!” until the point of collapse.

When we last saw Survival Tobita he was given instructions by Ken Ohka to transform himself into a cyborg. He was only able to partially through the process and appeared today with a lot of skin missing from his upper body. One of his eyes, his brain and his internal organs were all exposed. Crusher Takahashi defeated the work in progress cyborg and shook his hand after the match. He didn’t want to hug him though.

The Ganbare☆Idol of the show is Metropoli-chan V, an underground idol who also has a career as a nurse.

J-Soul Pandita III appeared from the wild to attack Wonder Man at the beginning of the show. Who’s Wonder Man you ask? Beats me.

Tokyo Musashi Koganei Station
300 Fans – Super No Vacancy

KO-D Tag Team Titles – 3 Way Street Fight: Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto (c) defeated Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata and HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano when Kodaka pinned Hirata with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the bicycle parking lot roof (20:08).
*V4 for Yankii Ni Cho Kenju.

Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto continue their domination of the DDT Tag Division, this time overcoming two teams in a DDT specialty Falls Count Anywhere match. The bout took place in the bicycle parking lot of the JR Musashi Koganei Station in Tokyo. Mats were placed on the ground to represent the “squared circle.” The vice president of the station was in attendence and he thanked the crowd of 300 people for coming to see the event.


The KO-D Tag Team Champions came out both dressed as Santa Claus. Kodaka, Sanshiro Takagi and Yasu Urano started off the match. Isami played the role of the referee when Urano held Takagi in a Hammerlock. Kodaka then put Urano in the same hold and Takagi then pretended to be the ref. Takagi put Kodaka in an STF but that was broken apart when Miyamoto hit Takagi with a padded baseball bat. Miyamoto brought out frisbees and threw them at his opponents while Urano took out a cracker, placed it in Kodaka’s mouth and set it off. Later on Kodaka brought out red spray paint and sprayed the Japanese character for “Merry Christmas” on Kazuki Hirata’s back. The champions also brought out concrete blocks to put on top of their opponents when they were lying on the ground. They then used other blocks to break them!


Kodaka brought out tomatoes he purchased from a nearby store for a snack but Takagi appeared behind him and squashed an orange into his eyes. GENTARO suddenly appeared but it turns out he is a local and he was just shopping in the area. Takagi found a bicycle shop and cycled back into the match, running over Miyamoto and then Clotheslining HARASHIMA from the bike for a nearfall. The fighting returned to the section where it began except this time a house of chairs was set up. Takagi cycled towards Urano but Urano leapt out of the way leading Takagi to crash into the chairs. HARASHIMA followed up with the Somato and went for the pin but Kodaka & Miyamoto were there to break it up. The champions climbed onto the roof of the parking lot. Miyamoto Moonsaulted onto the gang below and Kodaka hit the Diving Double Knee Drop onto Hirata for the three count.

Yokohama Radiant Hall
280 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Daichi Kazato defeated Tomoya Kawamura with the Anna Cutter (7:46).
2. Idea Pocket Presents: Mio Shirai (w/ Tsubasa Amami) defeated Mitomi Masayuki & Ryu Gouma (w/ Rola Mizusaki) when Shirai pinned Gouma with a Small Package (6:31).
3. Seiya Morohashi & Cherry defeated SAGAT & Kyoko Kimura when Cherry pinned SAGAT with the Spring Night Love (11:53).
4. MEN’S Teioh defeated Hiroshi Fukuda with the Spinning Toe Hold (16:37).
5. Isami Kodaka defeated Menso~re Oyaji with the Zan Isamu Leg (13:44).
6. 1,000 Roses Death Match: Shuji Ishikawa defeated FUMA with the Splash Mountain onto the Rose Board (16:55).

It is recommended you listen to “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal as you read the results.

FUMA’s first ever death match was not as rosy as the name suggested. Shuji Ishikawa defeated the young wrestler in a 1,000 Roses Death Match where everything was covered in roses. Ishikawa thought it was fun while FUMA described the match as “doom and gloom” but he felt he came out as a stronger wrestler.

Naomi Susan announced the official creation of the Union MAX Championship. Susan wanted a name that was simple but represents how Union can go full force at any time. Shuji Ishikawa will face Russia’s Ivan Markov in Shinjuku FACE on 11th December to crown the first champion. Susan watched Isami Kodaka’s recent matches in Russia and was impressed with how much Markov has improved since his last visit to Japan, which is why he was selected to face Ishikawa.

Hiroshi Fukuda and MEN’S Teioh slowly bonded during their match together. Fukuda kept calling Teioh “Terry” and eventually “Terry Boy” as they wrestled. Teioh submitted Fukuda with the Spinning Toe Hold. The two reappeared after the Isami Kodaka Vs Menso~re Oyaji match. Fukuda sarcastically congratulated Kodaka for winning the match and then challenged him to a future KO-D Tag Team Titles match. Kodaka and Yuko Miyamoto already have title defences to prepare for so Naomi Susan called up Amon Tsurumi to sort it out. Fukuda named his new team Texas Tornado Broncos Tokyo.

SAGAT had his mouth stuffed with a banana while he teamed with Kyoko Kimura. Unfortunately, Kimura booted SAGAT in the face by accident, costing them the match against Cherry & Seiya Morohashi.

Ryu Gouma is the latest person to insert himself into the Idea Pocket shenanigans (minds out of the gutter please). He was added to the match as Mitomi Masayuki’s partner to make it a 2-on-1 match against Mio Shirai. Despite that, Shirai continues to grow her harem of Idea Pocket Divas by winning the services of Rola Mizusaki. Afterwards it was announced that the Aipoke World Title was declared vacant and a new champion will be crowned on 11/12.

An Australian martial artist named Richard Burn will make his Union debut on the 11/12 show. Burn has travelled the world in order to master many marial arts including taekwondo, capoeira, kick boxing and Jeet Kune Do. Burn greeted the fans and said he heard Japan has many strong fighters. His debut match will be against Daichi Kazato.

Yokohama Radiant Hall
373 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Antonio Honda & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Shigehiro Irie & Soma Takao when Hona pinned Takao with the Long And Winding Roll (11:09).
2. 4 Way Match: Makoto Oishi defeated MIKAMI, Michael Nakazawa and Tomomitsu Matsunaga when Oishi pinned Nakazawa with La Magistral Cradle Cutback (4:18).
3. Ichigaya District Shake: Hoshitango defeated Masa Takanashi with the Argentine Backbreaker (6:30).
4. Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Guanchulo defeated Kota Ibushi, Kenny Omega & Gota Ihashi when Guanchulo pinned Ihashi with the Chile Roll (10:58).
5. What Happened To Endo Interrogation: Danshoku Dino defeated Tetsuya Endo with the Danshoku Driver (8:28).
6. Yukio Sakaguchi & Akito defeated KUDO & Yasu Urano when Sakaguchi pinned KUDO with the Punt Kick (14:35).
7. DDT Extreme Title – Best 2 Out Of 3 Handicap Rules: HARASHIMA (c) defeated DJ Nira 2-1 (16:48).
-7a. 1 Count Vs 10 Count Handicap Match: HARASHIMA defeated DJ Nira with a Wristlock (5:06).
-7b. Do Not Speak Death Match: DJ Nira defeated HARASHIMA when HARASHIMA said “Here I Come” (10:30).
-7c. Shiritori Technique Match: HARASHIMA defeated DJ Nira with the Ultra Somato (16:48).

HARASHIMA went through what has to be the weirdest challenge of his career today. DJ Nira stepped up to challenge him for the DDT Extreme Title but the champion couldn’t decide what match to have. Nira thought this meant the show was now cancelled. They eventually decided to make it best two out of three rounds with a different stipulation for every round. Round 1 had the rule where Nira would win if he pinned HARASHIMA for one second while HARASHIMA had to pin Nira for ten seconds to win. HARASHIMA avoided that handicap by making Nira tap out to a Wristlock. Round 2 had the rule where you were disqualified if you spoke. You could still make noise and Nira did ever time HARASHIMA kicked him, you just could not speak. Nira found a note and wanted HARASHIMA to read it, but he didn’t fall for the trap. Instead HARASHIMA embarrassed himself and lost the round when he yelled “Here I come” when he was about to finish off Nira. The deciding round was a Shiritori match. Shiritori is a Japanese version of the game where you have to say a word that begins with the last letter of the previous word. In this case, the players had to perform a wrestling move instead of just saying the word. A wrestler loses if he fails to do a suitable move three times or if he cannot continue.

The game went as follows. HARASHIMA began the round with an Iron Claw. Nira did the Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chin Crusher. Nira did a Desperation Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chickenwing Armlock. Nira did another Desperation Rocket Punch. HARASHIMA did a Chickenwing Facelock. Nira did a Rocket Punch to the neck (noticing a pattern?). HARASHIMA did a Choke Sleeper but that was disallowed, so he did a Choke Slam instead. Nira did the “Rocket Punch of Useless Resistance”. HARASHIMA did a Chop. Nira did the Rocket Punch Push. HARASHIMA did a different Chop but it wasn’t allowed. He struggled to think of a move until he figured out he could do the Ultra Somato. Nira tried to get up and do the Rocket Punch but he collapsed, giving HARASHIMA the victory!

Yukio Sakaguchi gains momentum for his upcoming KO-D Openweight Title match by pinning former champion KUDO in the semi-main tag match.

Danshoku Dino used his match against Tetsuya Endo to interrogate what the young wrestler has been up to during his absence. Makoto Oishi told the audience a rumour that Tetsuya Endo was not really Tetsuya Endo but someone pretending to be him. Guanchulo told Dino & Oishi that he saw Endo leaving the DDT dormitory late one night and ever since then he has acted differently. Dino did his usual tricks in the match and got Endo to confess. Endo said it was Kazuki Hirata’s birthday two days ago and he couldn’t afford to buy him the gift he wanted, so he got a part time job to get extra cash. The reason Endo has been acting differently is because of exhaustion. With the mystery solved, everyone began to sing Happy Birthday to the absent Hirata.

Michael Nakazawa used his appearance in the 4 Way Match to plug his new DVD. The DVD includes matches of Nakazawa and Tomomitsu Matsunaga teaming together as the Nuru Nuru Brothers. They brought the gimmick back during the match, covering themselves in lotion to slip out of their opponents’ moves. The plan backfired when Nakazawa tried to pin Makoto Oishi with La Magistral Cradle only for Oishi to slip away and roll up Nakazawa for the three count instead.

Amon Tsurumi announced the next KO-D Tag Team Titles defence will take place inside the Musashi Koganei Station shopping centre in Tokyo on 15th December. Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto will defend the belts in a 3 Way Match against Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata and HARASHIMA & Yasu Urano. The winners will then defend the titles in Hakata later that day against Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie.
