The former Goro Jr. became an unlikely hero for Union by attempting to win the Union MAX Title from FUMA. Kubo entered to a remixed version of his mentor Dick Togo’s song (I assume it’s “Insane in the Membrane”). He came close to winning with the Goro Suplex and Blowback but FUMA fired back with a combination consisting of the Sole Butt, Argentine Piledriver, Tombstone and finally the Diving Headbutt. That was nough to put Kubo away. After the match FUMA said that the King Legion will show their full power next month and challenged anyone to try and stop them.
With retirement looming on the horizon Mio Shirai made it her goal to win a championship one more time in all four companies she is under contract to. She already holds the tag team titles for both Ice Ribbon and Pro Wrestling WAVE. She also recently won the main championship in OZ Academy but was forced to vacate it after losing a stipulation match but that’s another story for another blog. All that remained was winning back the Union Fly To Everywhere Title. She had to go through Hibiscus Mii to do that and it wasn’t an easy task. The match featured plenty of Headbutts but Shirai prevailed and is now a Triple Crown champion. Shirai apologised for having a swollen red head because of all the Headbutts she gave and took.
In what was probably the weirdest recycling campaign ever, the UWA World Tag Team Titles were put on the line in an Empty Can Death Match. There were no countouts or rope breaks and every five minutes the fans in attendence were encouraged to throw their empty beer cans into the ring. The wrestlers were then allowed to use the cans as weapons. The Brahman Brothers still used their usual array of weapons like the suitcase, bowling ball and pig head. The dreaded black ink also came into play and blinded Masato Shibata long enough to be pinned, resulting in the title switch.
Madoka was nominated by Isami Kodaka to be the next No. 1 Contender for his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. The title match will be in Yokohama on 18th July.
The male wrestlers in Match #1 were penalised whenever they did not act like gentlemen towards the women. Daichi immediately lost 3 points at the start of the match when he entered the ring without Cherry. Hiroshi Fukuda smartly escorted Aoi Ishibashi to her corner to avoid the same penalty. Daichi lost another point for locking up with Ishibashi and messing her hair in the process. Meanwhile Fukuda punched Cherry but that was okay because it was ruled as an act performed on an opponent in a competitive wrestling match. Fukuda then used Ishibashi as a human shield for a top rope attack from Daichi. That wasn’t ok and he was penalised 100,000 points before getting pinned by Cherry.
Ryu Gouma participated in a special public training exercise at the beginning of the show. Kazuhiko Ogasawara came out with a baseball bat and challenged Gouma to break it in half. He struck Gouma in the shin everytime Gouma failed. Gouma gave up and Ogasawara dragged him to the back stating he will train him even harder.
