BASARA and Kotetsu Gundan went to war in a 6-Man Tag Cage Match. The rules were two members of a team had to escape the cage and the remaining member needed to pin, submit or knock out an opponent to win the match. Kyohei Wada was the man put in charge of the match as all 6 wrestlers entered the cage. Kotetsu Gundan started off in control when Madoka attacked Isami Kodaka with a bamboo sword while his team mates threw their opponents into the cage. Madoka quickly tried to escape but was told to come back down by Yusuke Kubo because it was too early to stop beating up their enemies. Kodaka grabbed the bamboo sword and fired back at the Kotetsu team. Takumi Tsukamoto’s Superplex to Madoka was blocked but when Madoka followed up with a Missile Dropkick he was whacked in mid-air with a massive hammer. Tsukamoto took the opportunity to be the first wrestler to escape the cage. Kotetsu Gundan regained control because of the numbers advantage. Madoka gave Daichi Kazato a Fire Thunder onto a table. It didn’t break but Madoka didn’t care. He escaped the cage to make it 4 wrestlers left in the ring. Kazato was next to climb the cage but took a moment to decide if he should escape or Moonsault back onto everyone in the cage. Kazato went with the Moonsault and hit his target. Even better, Kazato had enough time to recover and crawl out of the cage through the door. Kodaka was the last man on his team so he couldn’t escape to win. FUMA ordered Kubo to escape the cage while he held Kodaka back. So the final stage of the match was between Kodaka and FUMA. FUMA went for the Heavy Metal Hammer but Kodaka surprised him by smashing Madoka’s ukulele over his head. Kodaka placed a ladder on top of FUMA and hit the Diving Double Knee Drop but it left him in great pain. FUMA hit the Heavy Metal Hammer and the Heavy Metal Anthem but Kodaka would not stay down. Kodaka climbed to the top of the cage and hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on FUMA and that was enough to end the match. Afterwards Kodaka told Madoka he would reimburse him for the ukulele he broke. He was told the ukulele cost 30,000 yen and in response said he might have to take money out of the upcoming tournament prize to pay for it. A defeated FUMA told Kodaka “You are also metal!” Kodaka didn’t take that as a compliment and flipped FUMA a middle finger. He then climbed the turnbuckle and did the Diving Double Knee Drop onto the unbroken table. He isn’t metal, he’s hardcore!
Kodaka invited Masamune to team with him on the 3rd May show in Miyagi.
MEN’S Teioh returned to his Terry Boy persona for a Hardcore Match with Hiroshi Fukuda. Despite the special occasion Fukuda did not hold back and busted open Terry after an ambush belt attack. Fukuda did the Perfect Plex off of a ladder but Terry kicked out of the pin. Terry used the ladder himself to give Fukuda the Calf Branding and then submitted him with the Spinning Toe Hold.
BASARA announced its first tournament called Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. It is a round robin tournament with two blocks of five wrestlers each. The winners of both groups will face each other in the final with 500,000 yen as the grand prize. The money comes from Kodaka’s savings apparently. Block A has Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu, SAGAT and Yusuke Kubo. Block B has FUMA, Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato, Ryu Gouma and Hiroshi Fukuda. The tournament begins on 1st May and ends on 23rd June.
