*V2 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.
The final night of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament began with a suspenseful tiebreaker. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and FUMA finished in a dead heat in their block. Their group match ended in a Double KO so neither could put in a rightful claim for who deserved the spot in the final more. So they had to fight each other again in a tiebreaker match. This time FUMA came out on top, wearing out Hiroshi with Buzzsaw Kicks and then finally finishing him off with the Jawbreaker kick.
The stakes were raised in the final when Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi agreed to put the Union MAX Title on the line against FUMA. After all, there was no clear challenger on the horizon for the champ after he swept through the competition in the group stage. The ring was surrounded by IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family. All of them were cheering for their wrestler to win. The champion was in trouble when FUMA countered the Perfect Five into the Metal Fire From Hell. The end appeared to be coming when FUMA went for the Jawbreaker but Ryuichi made him freeze by pointing at him and shouting “YOU!” FUMA snapped out and gave Ryuichi a High Kick then a Superplex. FUMA was on fire until Ryuichi stopped him in his tracks with a Lariat. Now Ryuichi was shaking the ropes in anticipation and he hit another Lariat for a nearfall. The end finally came when Ryuichi hit the Perfect Five and it was enough to pin FUMA for the three count.
Ryuichi happily accepted his 500,000 yen cash prize. He told FUMA he dislikes the Heavy Metal hand sign but he also doesn’t mind heavy metal music in general so they should wrestle again some time. He tried to walk towards FUMA for a handshake but stopped when SAGAT accidentally stepped on the microphone cable. Ryuichi and Hiroshi attacked SAGAT as punishment then went back to shake FUMA’s hand. The Trans-Am ★ Family declared “War is over. Love and peace.” However, Yusuke Kubo disagreed. He told the Family in English that the war is not over and IRON PRIEST won’t be shaking hands with them. IRON PRIEST will never give up! He challenged them to a match on 20th July. They agreed but first, Ryuichi is taking his prize money to Las Vegas.
Yasu Urano wanted to experience a Hardcore Match and by God he got what he wanted. Isami Kodaka brought out a ladder and set it up in the ring. Then when the match began everyone immediately brought in chairs and swung away at each other. Kodaka later busted him open with a chairshot. Takumi Tsukamoto fended off Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine with his giant hammer. Kodaka then hit the Chair Assisted Diving Double Knee Drop on Tsukamoto. Urano broke the pin and DDT’d Kodaka onto the chair. Sekine wiped out Tsukamoto with a Topé Suicida while Kodaka hit Urano with a Shining Wizard. Kodaka climbed the ladder but Urano followed. The two exchanged strikes until Kodaka knocked Urano off the ladder. He then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop from the ladder to Urano. After that there was no way Urano could kick out. When the match was over Kodaka asked Urano if he enjoyed his first Hardcore Match. Urano said he did not take this match lightly and he wanted to do as well as SAGAT would. Urano then asked if he could continue to wrestle in BASARA, but no more Hardcore Matches. Kodaka brought up the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. There have been two tournaments previously and they were won by Urano and Kodaka. So let’s do it again! Both of them announced they will enter the next Budokai tournament which will take place in Korakuen Hall instead of Shinjuku on 28th December. Naoki Tanizaki also threw his name into the hat when he found out about it.
Ryota Nakatsu’s plan to target Magnitude Kishiwada’s left arm didn’t work. His opponent was able to shrug off the damage and cut him off with a Lariat late in the match. He only got a nearfall with the Diving Body Press. When that didn’t work, Kishiwada put Nakatsu into a Single Leg Crab Hold and dragged him into the middle of the ring for the submission victory.
Takato Nakano stepped up to Naoki Tanizaki, throwing Chops when Tanizaki mocked him for being the “Youngster of BASARA”. Nakano kicked out of the Reverse Implant but fell to the normal version of the move. Nakano slapped the mat in disappointment after the match.
Yuko Miyamoto will be on the 1st October Korakuen Hall show. The event will celebrate Isami Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary in wrestling.
