Kota Umeda tore his right ACL and also injured his right femur during Sunday’s show in Hanamatsu. Surgery is required so Umeda will unfortunately be out of action for a while. That means he has to miss both the DNA Grand Prix and the Dramatic General Election. Umeda said he currently feels miserable because his immediate goal was to beat Kazusada Higuchi and win the Grand Prix. Also with KUDO just after returning from injury, Umeda was looking forward to Shuten-dōji rampaging through DDT as a four man group. He promises to begin his rampage when he returns.

BASARA “VAJRA 20 ~FIERCE FIGHTING~”, 05/10/2016
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1A: Daichi Kazato & Tomoya Kawamura Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT
2. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1B: Koji Iwamoto & Fuminori Abe Vs FUMA & Yusuke Kubo
3. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1C: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Gouma Ryu & Masamune
4. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1D: Shinjiro Otani & Sean Guinness Vs Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto

Another month another tournament for BASARA. This time FUMA came up with an idea to do a tag team league to prove IRON PRIEST’s dominance. But in order to fit in the schedule the tournament will be a playoff instead. It is called the IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT in tribute to the Motorhead song and FUMA keeps calling it a Rock Festival instead of a Tag Tournament. Joining the tournament are teams representing BASARA’s units, Sportiva Entertainment and ZERO1. FUMA decided only he and Yusuke Kubo will be there flying the IRON PRIEST flag. He thinks they won’t need Madoka to help them. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT are back together. Hiroshi is confident in his own abilities but worries the burden is too much for SAGAT to bear. Surprisingly Gouma Ryu was able to convince Masamune to team with him. Apparently Masamune would have teamed with Isami Kodaka but Kodaka picked Takumi Tsukamoto instead.

BASARA “VAJRA 21 ~TEN THOUSAND RIICHI SKY~”, 29/10/2016
Yokohama Radiant Hall

1. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Semi Final: Winners Of Match 1A Vs Winners Of Match 1B
2. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Semi Final: Winners Of Match 1C Vs Winners Of Match 1D
3. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Final: Winners Of Semi Final 1 vs Winners Of Semi Final 2

The ZERO1 team are Shinjiro Otani and Irish wrestler Sean Guinness. Ryu believes some sort of illegal activity has led to team entering the tournament and if his team ends up fighting them in the semi final he will bring them to court to get any sort of advantage over them.
