BASARA “VAJRA 30 ~WINTER SUMMER BLUE~”, 20/02/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Shinya Ishida defeated Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi when Hiroshi pinned Kazato with the Perfect Plex (10:05).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when Hagane pinned Maruyama with La Bufadora (12:54).
3. Metal Special Match: Minoru Tanaka defeated Yusuke Kubo with the B”D”F (10:42).
4. Ryota Nakatsu, Koji Iwamoto & Fuminori Abe defeated Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Tatsuhiko Yoshino when Iwamoto pinned Yoshino with the Aloof Art (11:34).
5. Hardcore Match: Gunso defeated SAGAT with a Chair Attack (13:14).
6. Union MAX Title: FUMA (c) defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Jawbreaker (17:56).
*V1 for FUMA.

FUMA was victorious in the main event but Ryuichi Sekine isn’t going to take it easily. Sekine yelled at FUMA after the match and swore that he will eventually win the Union MAX Title from him. The other members of Cavalry had to restrain Sekine and help him walk away from the ring. FUMA joked that his own hair was the same length as Phil Anselmo’s from his heyday in Pantera. He then proclaimed himself the “KING OF METAL WRESTLING”.

Gunso is quickly making a name for himself in BASARA. He defeated SAGAT in a Hardcore Match, even surviving a pre-match ambush from his opponent. His fighting style is called “Dub Wrestling” and music played as the two wrestlers battered each other with chairs. SAGAT was eventually worn down until Gunso finally threw a chair right at his face to keep him down long enough for the three count. Even then the two traded Heabutts with each other after the match.

Even though Koji Iwamoto is still a part of Cavalry, he entered the ring wearing an All Japan T-shirt. Today was his first appearance in BASARA since becoming affiliated with AJPW. Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Tatsuhiko Yoshino were described as looking like Japanese tourists in Paris. They wore sunglasses, backbacks and had selfie sticks. Kodaka had enough with the silliness and broke his stick but Yoshino then yelled he needed that for work! Kodaka proceeded to take his smartphone and use it as a weapon while Yoshino panicked over it getting damaged. Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto found Yoshino so annoying they turned on him. Even the referee Yuya Okada got a dig in when Yoshino wasn’t looking. They all joined in with Cavalry for a Train Attack on Yoshino then counted along to Iwamoto pinning him.

Yusuke Kubo had a special opponent today, it was Minoru Tanaka! The two had a back and forth match that Tanaka won with a Diving Double Stomp he calls the B”D”F.

Today’s wrestling trial was a fraud case that was fresh off the oven. Hagane came to Shin-Kiba 1st RING to be in the Fighting Musical MAKAI show. When that was over he decided to stay in the building for the BASARA show. By doing so he avoided paying the entry fee and was accused of fraud. Hagane said he normally introduces himself as Madoka and wrestles in BASARA anyway. Atsushi Maruyama admitted that Hagane is a nice name. Further questioning turned into advertising for MAKAI’s next show in Shinjuku FACE on 2nd March. The trial broke down and turned into a match where Hagane pinned both Matsuyama and Gouma Ryu with La Bufadora (Springboard Moonsault). Hagane was then declared innocent.

Shinya Ishida’s luggage was stolen before the show so he arrived at the building without his wrestling gear. Luckily for him Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi gave him spare American style wrestling tights that would temporarily transform Shinya Ishida into Trans-Am ★ Ishida. The new look was a confidence boost and the Double Trans-Ams won their match against Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi.

intothefight2017-somato

We are now one month away from DDT’s 20th Anniversary show being held in Saitama Super Arena. The main event at Korakuen Hall was a special tag team bout containing the past, present and future of DDT. Generation rivals HARASHIMA & KUDO teamed together to defeat Konosuke Takeshita & Dick Togo. The victory was even sweeter for HARASHIMA because he pinned his Saitama opponent Takeshita to win the match. While Takeshita was still shaken by the Reverse Hurricanrana and Somato combo, he was still able to point at HARASHIMA while being taken away from the ring.

intothefight2017b

Sanshiro Takagi then took centre stage and was joined by almost the entire DDT roster. Only Takeshita and the DAMNATION wrestlers were absent. Takagi asked the audience what day it is. They answered “Pro Wrestling Day”. Takagi said they were correct, the first international pro wrestling match in the original Sumo Hall took place on 19th February, 1954 when Rikidozan & Masahiko Kimura fought the Sharpe Brothers. On the same date 20 years ago Takagi was preparing DDT’s first ever show. Today, DDT is one month away from running at Saitama Super Arena. Takagi thanked the fans for their support throughout the years and is looking forward to seeing them in Saitama next month. HARASHIMA took over and said everyone in DDT is different but together they will succeed so DDT will celebrate a 30th anniversary, a 40th anniversary and a 50th anniversary!

intothefight2017-endo-sakaguchi

Tetsuya Endo got the jump on Yukio Sakaguchi with a German Suplex before their match began. Endo left the ring but a pissed off Sakaguchi dove over the ropes on top of him. Sakaguchi later countered the Torture Rack Bomb into a Sleeper Hold and held on until Endo backed him into the corner. Sakaguchi went back to the Sleeper Hold, even catching Endo with one after a Handspring. Endo fought to reach the ropes but didn’t move afterwards and Yukinori Matsui had to push Sakaguchi back just in case Endo was too hurt to continue. It turned out Endo was playing possum and he threw Matsui into Sakaguchi. Then he hit the unaware Sakaguchi with a Handspring Kneel Kick. Sakaguchi was too disoriented to defend himself and Endo won with the Torture Rack Facebuster followed by the Sky Twister Press.

intothefight2017-dino-cabana

There was a meeting of two cultures when Colt Cabana faced Danshoku Dino. Since Cabana was using his “Boom Boom” nickname Dino decided to come up with his own, “Bin Bin” which is a Japanese slang for an erection. There were duelling chants of “Boom Boom” and “Bin Bin” as the two tangled. Cabana tried to copy Joey Ryan’s dick technique but this time Dino was able to overpower it. The match fell apart due to Dino’s shenanigans and the result was a No Contest. Dino continued trying to grab Dino after the match and then decided to strip naked. Other wrestlers had to run in and cover Dino’s modesty with whatever piece of clothing they could find. Dino didn’t care, this was all preparation for his match at Saitama Super Arena where he’ll be wrestling on a global stage. He’s not done with Cabana either and asked him to please come back. Cabana responded in Japanese. He loves wrestling, he loves DDT, he loves Korakuen Hall and he loves DDT UNIVERSE. But he doesn’t love Dino.

intothefight2017-oyama-takayama

Yoshihiro Takayama noticed that Shungo Oyama was sitting at the commentary table and invited him to the ring after his match. Oyama entered the ring and was willing to show respect but Takayama attacked him. Oyama ducked and put Takayama down with a Sleeper Hold.

intothefight2017-kotatsu

It is the table and it is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion! Kotatsu toughened out the combined powers of Keisuke Ishii and Antonio Honda to keep the title in a 3 Way Match. Honda wore Kotatsu over his back like a turtle shell and used it to block Ishii’s Kneel Kick. He then gave Ishii the Tombstone onto Kotatsu. But Honda was defeated when he swung Kotatsu at the ropes and it bounced back landing on top of him for the pin. Both Kazuki Hirata and Michael Nakazawa attacked Kotatsu after the match but then turned on each other. A double strike knocked both of them out and Kotatsu was left standing… because it’s a table…

intothefight2017-nakazawa

Michael Nakazawa was so used to the weather in Thailand that he was unprepared for the cold weather back in Japan. It affected his performance in a match where the loser would be deported from Japan. Nakazawa needed to be warm to do the Ultimate Venom Arm so one by one members of DDT staff offered their underwear to Nakazawa to form a Spirit Ball. Even his wife Keiko offered her red panties and held Kazuki Hirata in place for Nakazawa to strike. Unfortunately Hirata ducked and Nakazawa’s spirit ball of underwear landed on Keiko instead. Keiko was left stunned and she slapped Michael. That allowed Hirata to roll Michael up for the three count. Michael Nakazawa must now leave Japan. At least he still has his home in Thailand.

intothefight2017-akito

Things are going well for Soma Takao now that he is part of Smile Squash. They won the 3 Way Trios Match and Akito called for a shot at the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions. However NωA also wants a title shot and although they lost the match, they weren’t beaten. The decision was made to do a 3 Way Match for the titles between Team DNA, Smile Squash and NωA at Saitama Super Arena.

intothefight2017-dark

Nobuhiro Shimatani can see the light again and the King Of Dark Title has gone back home to its rightful owner. Gota Ihashi is now a 6 time champion. Shimatani can now compete at the DNA relaunch on 23rd February. He wants to team up with Daiki Shimomura to take on Guanchulo & Rekka.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #3” Results

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #3”, 18/02/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Syoko Nakajima defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Northern Lights Suplex (7:56).
2. Yuu & Miyu Yamashita defeated Mil Clown & Rika Tatsumi when Yamashita pinned Tatsumi with the Attitude Adjustment (14:53).
3. “Back Bancho” Akane Miura Road To Graduation: Akane Miura defeated Maho Kurone with the Lariat (4:30).
4. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun: Saki-nami & Martha defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Saki submitted Takigawa with a Foot Choke (15:34).

Saki-nami is really no good at making friends in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Her snooty behaviour made another enemy today. This time she called Azusa Takigawa a “White Pig”. Saki made things worse in the main event when she accidentally knocked out Daisuke Kiso with a missed Big Boot. Takigawa then pinned Saki-nami but there was no referee. Rika Tatsumi climbed into the ring and slapped the mat three three times in Kiso’s place. The GM Tetsuya Koda refused to end the match. He told them that Kiso was the designated referee so the match must continue. Saki then trapped Takigawa in a Foot Choke and made her submit. Saki said she doesn’t understand the elegance of vulnerable people then left the ring with her maid Martha. Takigawa asked Tatsumi to help her battle SIN Biishiki-gun even though Tatsumi is not a part of Konkatsu-gun. On 12th March they will get their revenge!

Akane Miura doesn’t have a special relationship with Maho Kurone but she still thinks their match today will be a special memory for her. Before Miura graduates she wants to reunite Bust Deluxe with Nonoko one more time.

The soon to debut Yuna Manase appeared at intermission and introduced herself to the audience. She said it was her first time at a Tokyo Joshi show and she is impressed. The action is a lot faster and more fierce than it looks on video.

Hyper Misao was in attendance to give an update on her health. She had surgery to repair her ACL one month ago and is currently in rehabilitation. She is asking her fans to please be patient for her return.

GUYZ “GUYZ PART 4”, 14/02/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
259 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Brand Anticipated Scramble Bunkhouse Hardcore 6 Way Match: Sanshiro Takagi defeated Toru Owashi, SAGAT, Nonoko, Yumehito Imanari and Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takagi pinned Shimatani with a Diving Body Press from the Ladder onto the Zexy Magazine through the Table (11:16).
2. Actwres girl’Z Offer Match ~A Bite Of A Cool Sensation The Sweep! Actress Girls Incoming!!~: Saori Anou defeated Tam Nakano with a Fisherman Suplex (6:36).
3. GuyZ Annual Round Boxing Handicap Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki ended in a No Contest (R4 2:19).
4. Last Gun Standing Match: Danshoku Dino defeated Takayuki Ueki with the Electrical Parade (11:33).
5. Special Single Match: Colt Cabana defeated Antonio Honda with the Superman Dive (13:31).
6. GuyZ Army Vs Sexy Army Full Challenge: Kazusada Higuchi, Ryuichi Sekine & Ken Ohka defeated Makoto Oishi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Mineo Fujita when Sekine pinned Oishi with the Kamikaze (7:08).

The Sexy Army did not come to the show to mess around although they did wear bath towels around their waists for the entire show. With Makoto Oishi giving the orders, he and his boys kidnapped guest idol Tsukasa Wachi and had her tied to the ring post with a rope during the main event. The GuyZ Army fought them to save her with Ryuichi Sekine pinning Oishi after a Lariat from Kazusada Higuchi, the Spear from Ken Ohka and a Kamikaze from Sekine. Oishi grovelled for forgiveness after the match but it was a ruse for the Sexy Army to ambush GuyZ. The fighting was stopped by the Actwres girl’Z wrestlers who rescued Wachi and forced the Sexy Army to flee. Sekine invited all of the girls to spend the rest of Valentine’s Day with GuyZ but they each came up with excuses to turn them down.

Colt Cabana and Antonio Honda both took their time wrestling each other. Whenever the action heated up one of them would ask the other to wait a second so they could catch their breath. When the match became more active, Yukinori Matsui ended up getting knocked out after a Bionic Elbow duel. Honda had Cabana beat with the Diving Elbow Drop but Matsui wasn’t there to count the pin. By the time Matsui recovered, Cabana leapt on top of Honda with the Superman Dive for the three count. Honda has no hard feelings over the result. He and Cabana instead bonded over their love of the Bionic Elbow.

The goal of the Last Gun Standing match was for your opponent to get an erection. Danshoku Dino claimed before the match that he is not attracted to Takayuki Ueki so he had the advantage. However none of his usual moves could excite Ueki in that manner. It turned out Ueki did have a gun in his pants and he wasn’t happy to see Dino. He held up Dino at gunpoint with the demand that he could get a date with Tsukasa Wachi. Dino knocked him off the ropes to disarm him and after an exchange of finishers both men were down and out. Wachi came out wearing her bikini and began to cheer for Ueki. That caused Ueki to stand up in more ways than one resulting in him losing the match.

Wachi was all over this show. She was originally brought in to be the ring girl for the annual GuyZ boxing match but did her job fully clothed. She took more clothing after every round, attracting more and more men to ringside to watch. The only men not enjoying this were the boxers. Yukio Sakaguchi was only focused on winning while Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki were getting slaughtered as a result. Even worse for Ihashi & Suzuki, everyone else did whatever they could to avoid ending the fight so Wachi could continue stripping. Yukinori Matsui for example pretended to faint when he was about to finish a 10 count. The situation got so bad that Suzuki punched the cameraman for getting in the way in order to get a better view of Wachi. The other referee Yuya Okada had enough and called for the match to end, saying it’s what Kyohei Wada would have done. Matsui got so mad that he attacked Okada. The place was about to descend into chaos when Wachi told everyone to stop. She then stripped down to a blue bikini, solving everyone’s problems.

Nobuhiro Shimatani complained about having to wrestle on Valentine’s Day. He claimed he had other more important things to do. The others then accused him of being a virgin. Shimatani grabbed Nonoko’s issue of Zexy Magazine and threatened to destroy it. But he was stopped by Sanshiro Takagi who placed him on a table. Takagi then placed the magazine on top of him, climbed a ladder and Splashed Shimatani through the table to win. After the match Takagi told him he shouldn’t be ashamed of being a 20 year old virgin because that means he is still pure. SAGAT then admitted that he too is a virgin. Shimatani hugged him with joy.

5. Special 3 Way Match: Colt Cabana defeated Konosuke Takeshita and MAO when Cabana pinned MAO with a Superman Dive (8:11).
6. Daisuke Sasaki First Local Triumph! Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Jun Kasai & Antonio Honda when Sasaki submitted Honda with La Mistica Cross Facelock (12:37).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) defeated HARASHIMA & Akito when Sakaguchi submitted Akito with the Modified Cobra Clutch (18:29).
*V1 for Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi.

It was a mixed day for Smile Squash. They weren’t able to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles but they at least gained a new member. In the tag title match, Akito tapped out to Yukio Sakaguchi’s Modified Cobra Clutch. That was Sakaguchi’s revenge for losing to Akito by submission back in January. Sakaguchi asked who wanted to fight him and Masakatsu Funaki next. Out came Tetsuya Endo followed by Shuji Ishikawa! The DAMNATION team will get their title shot at Saitama Super Arena in March!

Daisuke Sasaki was celebrated his return home to Nerima with a tag team victory over Jun Kasai. Sasaki taunted Kasai during the match by stealing his goggles and copying his salute. Sasaki said Kasai was truly amazing, as expected from such a charismatic death match wrestler. He then stomped on Kasai and said he really isn’t such a big deal. Kasai is not as charismatic as he is. They’re going to have some fun in Saitama.

Colt Cabana’s first match in DDT was a success, pinning MAO in a 3 Way Match also featuring Konosuke Takeshita. However his victory speech was cut short when Danshoku Dino attacked him! Dino accused Cabana of being gay and he wants him to admit it in English! This was Cabana’s welcome to DDT and next Sunday at Korakuen Hall Dino will make sure Cabana will come out of the closet! When Dino left Cabana took the microphone. He said his crotch is bigger than Joey Ryan’s.

Yoshihiro Takayama is warming up to the idea of Danshoku Dino being his new No Fear tag partner. He hesitated to participate in Dino’s fighting style but eventually decided “No Fear!” After that he threw KUDO face first into Dino’s exposed rear end. Dino then put Guanchulo in position for the Axe Guillotine Driver but Takayama told him to hold still. Takayama then pulled Dino’s tights over Guanchulo’s head to turn the move into the Axe Guillotine Danshoku Driver! Takayama told Dino it was a good start for their new team.

Soma Takao is now a member of Smile Squash! He won a 6 Way Elimination Match where the winner would earn Takao’s membership. Before the match began, Sanshiro Takagi gave Takao one last offer. If Takao joins T2Hide they can kick out Kazuki Hirata and rename the unit T2T. Makoto Oishi thinks Takao has a future as a pop idol. Rekka tempted Takao with promises of becoming the ace of New Taiwan Pro Wrestling. Saki Akai said Takao can travel the world if he joins the Oscar Promotion agency. The only person who didn’t appeal for Takao to join his unit was Yasu Urano. That made things awkward because Takao wants to join Smile Squash and the match eventually came down to those two. Takao scored the win and earned the right to join Smile Squash under his own power. Urano wasn’t pleased by this. He thinks Takao joining Smile Squash is a dangerous idea. However Akito is ok with the idea and HARASHIMA welcomed Takao into the group with open arms. Urano then accepted Takao’s induction. If nothing else at least this means he now has a new friend.

The Kotatsu table made its presence felt in Match #2, somehow attacking Kazuki Hirata while Keisuke Ishii pinned Tomomitsu Matsunaga. Ishii talked to the table after the match. Ishii said he fights with pride as the AJPW Jr. Champion so he hopes Kotatsu is the same as the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. He offered a handshake but then began to stomp the table! He then gave Kotatsu the Emerald Frosion and went for a pin but Antonio Honda stopped the count. Honda then tried to pin Kotatsu but Ishii stopped him. Ishii and Honda then knocked each other out with a Lariat and Bionic Elbow collision, leaving Kotatsu just standing there probably triumphant.

Nobuhiro Shimatani is coming close to tying Gota Ihashi’s record for the most King Of Dark Title defences. Shimatani is more concerned about being forced to miss the DNA relaunch in two weeks time. He has one more chance to get rid of the title on 19th February. If he can’t win that match then he will miss the DNA show. Shimatani tried to pin the Kotatsu table to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title but Amon Tsurumi kicked him away.

*Cavalry fails in V2. The Aldini Brothers become the 23rd NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champions!

The Aldini Brothers have reclaimed the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles! The champions Cavalry almost won when Ryota Nakatsu hit a Sliding Kick to Takumi Tsukamoto. However Isami Kodaka stopped the pin with the Diving Double Knee Drop. Tsukamoto slipped out of the V Slider and gave Nakatsu the Tiger Suplex for the pin. Kodaka said described winning the belts from Cavalry made the victory even more meaningful. Tsukamoto said that together he and Kodaka will raise the prestige of the titles and also of BASARA.

Court was in session for the latest of Gouma Ryu’s Pro Wrestling Trials. Konaka = Pale One of all people took the case seriously. Gone was his ghostly facepaint and replacing them were a pair of glasses an a tie. He was the prosecutor accusing Mammoth Handa of faking an injury to avoid wrestling at a show last August. Ryu argued that Handa is passionate about pro wrestling but Kodaka told him he’s never seen Honda at practice. Tomoya Hasegawa was called to the ring as a witness. Kodaka noticed that he was wearing women’s underwear beneath his regular clothing. Hasegawa explained he borrowed his sister’s underwear because his own went missing. He then said Handa missed the show in August because of a traffic accident. But as he talked about this he accidentally revealed that he was driving to a Stardom show that day instead of the other show. Everyone attacked Hasegawa and piled on top of him for the pin. Hasegawa was then declared guilty.

1. GANBARE NEW WAVE: Shinichiro Tominaga & Shota Nakagawa defeated Yukihiro Abe & Andromeda KEN when Tominaga submitted KEN with the Just Face Lock (8:33).
2. G-COSMOS 2017 ~ Japan Vs Thailand International Combat In Prince – Punch Drunk Rules: Takafumi Ito defeated Tanomusaku Toba by TKO with a Right Hook (R4 2:26).
3. Ai Shimizu Ganbare☆Wrestling Trial – 3rd Round: Cassandra Miyagi defeated Ai Shimizu with the Tombstone Piledriver (15:55).
4. Japanese Psycho ~When You Fight~: Yumehito Imanari defeated Mars Spector with a Sleeper Hold (9:59).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Ken Ohka, Shuichiro Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Kenso Ohka, Osamu Namiguchi & Shibata when Masayuki pinned Shibata with the Salty Splash (17:39).

Ganbare☆Wrestling struck back at their evil doppelganger Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling with a victory in a 6-Man Tag Match. Kenso Ohka was angry at Shibata for taking the fall and banished him from Shin Ganpuro as punishment! Mitomi Masayuki approached Shibata and asked if he wanted them to team up again. Masayuki said the most fun he’s had in wrestling was when they were part of Enjo-gun together. He knows Shibata doesn’t have to rely on wrestling as a career because he has a successful Youtube channel. But if Shibata wants to continue wrestling, Masayuki will be there for him. Shibata told him to die, then left the ring.

The masked Mars Spector has been a powerful force in Ganpuro since May last year. However Yumehito Imanari not only stood up to him today but beat him too! Imanari survived Spector’s attacks to sink in a Sleeper Hold and never letting go. After the match Spector unmasked and was revealed to be Nobuhiro Tsurumaki, MMA fighter and Super FMW wrestler. Tsurumaki explained the Mars Spector gimmick was a tribute to the late Koichiro Kimura. Kimura wrestled under a mask as Super Uchu Power in DDT. Tsurumaki thought about going to DDT when he came up with the idea but then came across Ganpuro. Him in DDT wouldn’t be a big deal, but him in a small company with many weak wrestlers would be easy for him to make an impact. However during his time here he learned that everybody in Ganpuro are doing their best to help the company grow. Tsurumaki felt it was now time for him to leave but Ken Ohka stopped him. Ohka said his debut match 15 years ago involved Kimura. As long as Tsurumaki does his best, he is welcome in Ganpuro.

Ai Shimizu is now 0-3 in her trial series. Her latest loss was against Cassandra Miyagi from Sendai Girls. Miyagi yelled “Dead, Shimizu!” before hitting the match winning Tombstone Piledriver.

The Punch Drunk Rules match had Takafumi Ito and Tanomusaku Toba both wearing boxing gloves as they wrestled. Strikes, throws and submissions were encouraged by the rules and they fought in rounds until one could beat the other. Ito knocked out Toba with a Right Hook in Round 4 to win.

Shota Nakagawa kicked Andromeda KEN in the face when he refused to shake hands after Match #1.

The opening introductions were interrupted when a foreign masked wrestler entered the ring. He introduced himself as SoCal Crazy, world traveller and No. 1 Best Luchador! He heard Ganpuro is the No. 1 promotion in Japan and wanted to see if that’s true. Ohka scrambled to find an opponent to give Crazy a tryout and found another masked wrestler, Space Galaxy Warrior Andros. Andros was in the area searching for a companion he was separated from while they were protecting planet Earth. Crazy used his Lucha skills to beat him and they shook hands after the match.

Ganpuro has some special shows coming up. The Ganbare☆Wrestling Olympic Games take place on 4th March. Then on 2nd April a Ganbare Tag Tournment will be held.
