IRON PRIEST stole Cavalry’s stick horses at the last BASARA show and brought them out before the main event to taunt their opponents. However Cavalry got one up on them with a surprise ambush to start the elimination match. IRON PRIEST scored the first elimination when Madoka pulled Koji Iwamoto over the ropes and knocking him off the apron. Jaki Numazawa tried to get rid of Masashi Takeda next but a reversal of fortunes led to Numazawa getting knocked out of the ring. Takeda then eliminated both Yusuke Kubo and himself with a Spear on the apron. Cavalry took the lead when FUMA accidentally hit Madoka with a High Kick, leading to his elimination. But a mistaken clash of partners happened to Cavalry too afterwards. Ryota Nakatsu hit Ryuichi Sekine and FUMA capitalized. That left FUMA and Sekine as the final two and FUMA got the only pinfall of the match to win it for IRON PRIEST. FUMA said IRON PRIEST has been the best unit in BASARA’s eight months of existence. To prove this he wants to hold a tag team tournament called the Iron Fist Tag League. However he said this while still wearing his mask so most of the audience just heard muffled yelling. FUMA also wants “Iron Fist” by Motorhead to be the league’s official theme song. Isami Kodaka suggested it should be a playoff instead of a league because they have no time to do another round robin tournament this year.
Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi brought in a new tag partner from America, Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. However Atsushi Maruyama was convinced it was really Big Japan wrestler Ryuichi Kawakami pretending to be American. Ryuichi denied the accusation and got the fans to chant “Let’s go Trans-Am!” as he wrestled. Hi69 stopped Hiroshi from doing the Perfect Plex by hitting him with a chair. He and Maruyama then put their opponents in Sleeper Holds until “USA” chants woke them up. Team Trans-Am turned the tables and Hiroshi finally hit the Perfect Plex on Maruyama for the win.
The alliance between Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT is getting a little strained. Tsukamoto beat him in a Hardcore Match but offered to shake hands afterwards. SAGAT ignored it and headed directly to the exit.
Tomoya Kawamura had his first match in BASARA a day after his final match in DNA. The Rainbow Kawamura gimmick is now gone, Kawamura has reverted back to his previous self from before the injury. However he still put disinfectant on his hands before the match. Kawamura came close to winning with a Michinoku Driver II and Swanton Bomb but Kodaka fired back with the Zeyyari for the victory. Kodaka said his opponent was unexpectedly strong after watching video of his match from yesterday. He then welcomed Kawamura to BASARA.
The brackets for the 2nd Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai were revealed at the beginning of the show. The tournament takes place at Kodaka’s self-produced show on 28th September. The four first round matches are Shiori Asahi Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino, FUMA Vs Kengo Mashimo, Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sekimoto and Isami Kodaka Vs Brahman Kei (w/ Brahman Shu). Manami Toyota and a mystery wrestler were given byes into the second round.
