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.
