Now that the obsession of replacing Ganbare☆Wrestling with a knock off has gone away, KENSO is back to being himself. He and KAZMA SAKAMOTO are now using their history with WWE to motivate them and they recruited Gota Ihashi to their cause. The power has already gone to Ihashi’s head because he is now Hollywood GOTA in Ganpuro.

Shuichiro Katsumura was convinced by Ganbare The Great to team with him. Turns out he was also convinced to put on a mask and become Ganbare The Shooter for the occassion.

HARASHIMA has beaten Shigehiro Irie in every singles meeting they’ve ever had. Irie knows that if he can beat HARASHIMA then he will win the King Of DDT.

Akito and Tetsuya Endo spent their time at the press conference bickering about whether or not Endo is a hard working person only pretending to be a rebel. Akito teased Endo by revealing how much time he spends training and preparing his meals. Endo denies this and tried to convince everyone he is a lazy jerk who only eats Cup Noodles.
