GANBARE☆WRESTLING “KIDS RETURN 2018”, 13/09/2018
Ichigaya Nankai Memorial Clinic
70 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Rain With Fists In Ichigaya In Fine Weather! Summer Punching Fever In Ichigaya!!: Yumehito Imanari Vs Tanomusaku Toba ended in a Time Limit Draw (3R 2:00).
2. From Commando To Tomb Raider! The Soul Was Handed Over! Rain Of Slaughter Falls In Ichigaya In Fine Weather!!! Tomb Raider Haruhi Is Born!!!: Moeka Haruhi Vs Shin Mokujin Ken ended in a No Contest when Yumehito Imanari turned it into a 3 Way Match. (Special Referee: Yumehito Imanari)
2a. 3 Way Match: Moeka Haruhi defeated Shin Mokujin Ken and Yumehito Imanari when Haruhi pinned Imanari with a School Boy (4:20).
3. Kouki Iwasaki Belongs To Ganbare 1st Round Special Tag Match: Keisuke Ishii & Shota defeated Yumehito Imanari & Kouki Iwasaki when Ishii pinned Imanari with a Back Sky Kick (10:45).

Ganbare☆Wrestling was back with a show that felt like a Yumehito Imanari Appreciation Night because he was involved in every match. In the main event he teamed with Kouki Iwasaki in Iwasaki’s first match as a Ganpro regular. He turned a match between Moeka Haruhi and Shin Mokujin Ken he was officiating into a 3 Way Match so he could also be in it. Also he fought Tanomusaku Toba to a draw to kick off the show.

Imanari went through the entire show without winning any matches. Despite that record, Imanari asked Keisuke Ishii if they could have a match for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. He wants to fight for the belt that was created in FMW because he admires Atsushi Onita and Koji Nakagawa so much. Ishii accepted the challenge and it will take place on 29th September. Kouki Iwasaki Vs Shuichiro Katsumura is also booked on that show. Iwasaki will also get a match against Hideki Suzuki on 11th October. He was given a signed copy of Suzuki’s book “Introduction To Catch As Catch Can” that he can read to prepare for the match. Iwasaki said this was the reason why he wanted to join Ganpro.

Somebody in the audience then called out to Imanari. It was Hiroshi Yamato! He enjoyed today’s show and wants to give Ganpro a shot. Imanari happily booked him on the 11th October show. One last figure then appeared in the room. It was Ken Ohka! However Ohka looked different from the last time he was seen storming out of a Ganpro show. He was wearing a ten gallon hat and cowboy boots. He told Imanari he only came here to see the show, nothing else. Imanari asked Ohka what he was doing and tried to encourage him to come back. Imanari wants Ohka to work together with him as Ganpro heads towards Korakuen Hall later this year. He offered Ohka a match with Nobuhiro Tsurumaki on 29th September to determine if Ohka is still capable of doing his best. Ohka agreed to the match and told everyone that the 29th will be his resurrection day! He will change, Ganpro will change and the entire world will change too!

Moeka Haruhi brought a machine gun as part of her Tomb Raider cosplay. She wanted to shoot Shin Mokujin Ken with it but Imanari stopped her because of Ichigaya’s gun laws. Imanari was the referee of the match but he got so into it he begun to wrestle the others so it was turned into a 3 Way Match. Imanari pissed off Haruhi when he implied she will soon get fat. That comment also pissed off Ken apparently because it then decided to help Haruhi beat Imanari. Haruhi thanked Ken after the match by planting a rose on its head.

3. 3 Way Match: Jun Kasai defeated Antonio Honda and Kazuki Hirata when Kasai pinned Honda with the Pearl Harbour Splash (10:20).
4. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Akito & Yuki Iino defeated Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Nobuhiro Shimatani attacked the referee (2:26).
4a. Rematch: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Yuki Iino defeated Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takeshita pinned Shimatani with a Crucifix Pin (11:01).
5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 5th Match: Shinya Aoki defeated Kota Umeda with a Foot Choke (6:42).
6. Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated Meiko Satomura & Daisuke Sasaki when Irie pinned Satomura with the Beast Bomber (14:15).

The unusual pairing of Meiko Satomura and Daisuke Sasaki could not put aside their differences against RENEGADES. Sasaki kept trying to avoid being tagged in whenever he could. Satomura hit him hard when she was able to tag him. Sasaki did wrestle seriously against Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase but when the moment was right for him to betray Satomura, he took it. Sasaki hit Satomura with a Thrust Kick and left her for dead so Irie could hit her with the Beast Bomber. Satomura still had strength left in her and she proved it by kicking out of the Missile Kick Piledriver combo from RENEGADES. But another Beast Bomber from Irie put her down for the count. Irie told Satomura that there is a difference in power between men and women. She will be destroyed in Korakuen Hall to the point that she won’t get back up.

When Satomura left ringside, Irie’s promo was interrupted by a video message from Danshoku Dieno. In the message Dieno said he will get revenge on Irie for attacking him but he won’t be a coward. He will fight Irie face to face! Dieno’s music hit and RENEGADES faced the entrance waiting for Dieno to come out. Dieno snuck into the ring from a different angle and blinded everyone with Milk Mist! He then gave Irie the Danshoku Driver. Dieno got on the microphone and acted like he did what he promised. He attacked Irie head on. Now they have to wait until 23rd September for the Survival 3 Way Match. Dieno wonders if Satomura will survive today’s defeat and continue fighting? Will Irie rip apart two people in the ring? Whatever will happen, Dieno will come out of it as the KO-D Openweight Champion!

Kota Umeda kicked away Shinya Aoki’s hand when he was offered a handshake. Bad move! Aoki took Umeda’s kicks and grappled him down to the canvas. Umeda gained momentum with a Dragon Suplex, a Brainbuster and a PK but as soon as Aoki trapped him in a Foot Choke it was all over for Umeda.

Aoki thanked Umeda for the match then talked about the other reason why he stepped into the DDT ring today. Aoki wants to challenge HARASHIMA for the DDT Extreme Title! Aoki is aware that HARASHIMA will get to choose the match stipulation so he asked for the match rules to be sent to him within a week. He will accept either a hand written message or a PDF document. Tetsuya Koda and Hisaya Imabayashi argued over when to book the match and agreed to have it at the 21st October Korakuen show. HARASHIMA welcomed Aoki to the harsh world of EXTREME!

The DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT match was called off when Nobuhiro Shimatani interfered and struck Yukinori Matsui with the DAMNATION placard from the DNA Draft. Konosuke Takeshita stood up from the commentary table and confronted Shimatani. It’s not time for Takeshita’s official return from injury but he asked Koda if the match could restart as a 6-Man Tag with him and Shimatani both included. The match restarted and while Takeshita got his hands on Shimatani, DAMNATION quickly targeted his injured shoulder. It was clear that Takeshita wasn’t ready to return but he was still able to pin Shimatani with a Crucifix to get ALL OUT the win. Takeshita told Akito & Yuki Iino about his frustrations while he was out of action. Now that he is back he wants to wrestle at the rest of this week’s DDT shows.

Jun Kasai used his goggles to protect his eyes from Antonio Honda’s Shining Gongitsune attack. After he won the 3 Way Match, Kasai again got in trouble for talking about the Dramatic General Election while standing inside the ring.

You don’t use La Magistral Cradle on Toru Owashi. You just don’t! Masahiro Takanashi learned that the hard way. The return of DISASTER BOX is getting Owashi his groove back.

Ryan Davidson’s final match on his first tour of DDT ended in defeat to MAO. He got time to say goodbye to the crowd and promised he will be back.

Soma Takao ignored Makoto Oishi’s handshake after their match.

Keisuke Ishii won his match with a Running Knee Strike instead of the usual Kneel Kick.

DDT gave its first update for the Dramatic Election standings. DAMNATION are leading the Unit Election with 261 votes, Shuten-dōji are second with 185 votes and The Compliance are third with 128 votes. Over on the individual side, Maki Ito has stormed ahead of everyone else with 244 votes! The rest of the field making up the current Top 20 have between 68 down to 14 votes.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TORA NO SHUIN~” Results

September 9, 2018

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TORA NO SHUIN~”, 09/09/2018
Kanagawa Odawara Arena Sub Arena
141 Fans

1. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno defeated Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Ueno pinned Shimatani with the Frog Splash (8:31).
2. Kazuki Hirata defeated Mizuki Watase with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (7:02).
3. Odawara Tornado Tag Match: Akito & Gota Ihashi Vs Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga ended in a Time Limit Draw (10:00).

4. Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 3: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Yuki Iino with a Buchikamashi (7:59).

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated KUDO, Masahiro Takanashi & MAO when Endo submitted Takanashi with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (12:56).
7. Odawara Specialty! Kamaboko Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Jun Kasai defeated Shigehiro Irie & Ryan Davidson when HARASHIMA pinned Davidson with the Somato (12:29).

The combined power of the Pearl Harbour Splash followed by the Somato won the main event for HARASHIMA & Jun Kasai. The match was a special occasion for Kasai because today is his 44th birthday! HARASHIMA then said today is also his mother’s birthday! He also promised to follow Kasai on Twitter, which he did after the show.

Keisuke Ishii interviewed Yoshihiko after their victory. Ishii pointed out that neither of them are part of any of the units in this year’s Dramatic General Election. He asked if Yoshihiko is interested in forming a new unit with him but he only got silence in return.

Kazusada Higuchi used his sumo strength to push Yuki Iino full force into the turnbuckles to beat him.

Match #3 was supposed to be a Battle Of Wimbledon match but there was no tennis equipment available in the venue. Instead they found a basketball and created the Odawara Tornado Tag Match. For every second a wrestler gets in a pin attempt, they get a free throw at the basketball hoop next to the ring. Nobody was able to make the shot and the match ended in a draw after ten minutes. A sudden death shootout determined the winning team. Tomomatsu Matsunaga was the only person to make his shot so Booing 2018 won!


DDT “WE WILL HAVE OUR SECOND MEETING! 2018” Results

DDT “WE WILL HAVE OUR SECOND MEETING! 2018”, 08/09/2018
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall
210 Fans – No Vacancy

2. Narimasu Three Big Single Match!: Kazusada Higuchi defeated Ryan Davidson with the Doctor Bomb (9:35).

5a. Sanshiro Takagi (1) pinned Kazuki Hirata (0) with a Lariat (0:08).

5g. Sanshiro Takagi (7) pinned Kazuki Hirata (0) with the Punk Free Avalanche Brainbuster (7:20).
5h. Sanshiro Takagi (8) pinned Kazuki Hirata (0) with a Dropkick (9:33).
5i. Kazuki Hirata (1) pinned Sanshiro Takagi (8) with the Miracle One Shot Cradle (12:20).
6. Shuten-dōji Vs RENEGADES!: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase defeated KUDO & Masahiro Takanashi when Irie pinned Takanashi with the Beast Bomber (11:05).
7. DISASTER BOX Vs DAMNATION!: HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie when Ueno pinned Paulie with a Frankensteiner (18:24).

Today’s result is a good sign for DISASTER BOX as they prepare for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match next month. HARASHIMA hit Mad Paulie with the Standing Somato, stunning Paulie long enough for Yuki Ueno to pin him with a Frankensteiner. HARASHIMA encouraged the newborn DISASTER BOX to rise rapidly and win the titles from DAMNATION!

DDT had 50 copies of Kazuki Hirata’s exercise DVD still in stock that they needed to get rid of. They were able to sell 41 of them up until today’s show and came to the conclusion that nobody else will buy the remaining copies. Sanshiro Takagi wanted Hirata to buy the remaining 9 copies but Hirata refused. They agreed to make their match a 60 minute time limit Falls Count Anywhere match set for 9 falls! Every time a wrestler lost a fall they are forced to buy a DVD for 3,000 yen a piece. All 9 falls had to be done within the 60 minutes. Takagi won the first 8 falls but failed to make a clean sweep when Hirata caught him in the Miracle One Shot Cradle to win the final fall. That was enough of a moral victory to satisfy Hirata. Plus he now gets 8 votes for the Dramatic General Election because he spent 24,000 yen at the DDT merch table! I guess there’s no rules prohibiting the contestants from buying their own voting ballots to vote for themselves.

The unlikely pairing of Makoto Oishi & Keisuke Okuda had trouble meshing together but they ultimately pulled it off in the end. Oishi positioned himself in front of Yuki Iino and provoked Okuda to come and kick him. Oishi dodged it and Okuda kicked Iino. Oishi then pinned Iino with a Jackknife.

After intermission Sanshiro Takagi & Tomomitsu Matsunaga came out to make an announcement. They are displeased over Booing 2018 being left off the 23rd September Korakuen Hall show. They also noticed that DDT for the last few years has been light on showcasing independent wrestlers. DDT is owned by CyberAgent (in fact the Korakuen show takes place on the 1st anniversary of the sale) but they will always remember their past as an indie league. So they want to hold a special audition match on the Korakuen pre-show with the goal of recruiting new independent wrestlers, local wrestlers and student wrestlers for a massive dream indie show called “ALL DOIN”! Takagi is aware of the super indie show called “ALL IN” that recently took place in America. He admits this idea is probably a rip off. He wants anybody in Japan interested in taking part to DM him on social media with the hashtag #ALLDOIN.

Miyu Yamashita, Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima returned from their American adventure to defeat Reika Saiki, Maki Ito & Miu in today’s main event. Their speech after the match was interrupted by Maki Ito who demanded a singles match with Mizuki. She will get what she wants and the match was booked for 22nd September. Sakazaki told Ito that Mizuki is hers now. Yamashita & Nakajima cooled the situation down by thanking everybody for supporting them and Tokyo Joshi Pro. They promise to do their best so everybody around the world can watch them.

The America love spread over to Yuna Manase and Hyper Misao. Both of them put their heads together to create the Queen Of USA Match. Along with the regular wrestling rules, the match could also be won when somebody wears a USA hat and correctly dances to the song “USA” by DA PUMP. There were points when Daisuke Kiso and Sayuri Nanba had the hat put on their head. Eventually both Manase and Misao both wore hats and danced while they fought until Koda judged Manase to be the winner.

Azusa Takigawa has renamed the Christie Agape. It is now called the Broadcaster. On 22nd September, Takigawa will face Yamashita for her 3rd Anniversary Match.

5. KO-D Openweight Title: Danshoku Dieno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

The KO-D 6-Man Tag Titles are active again with the Soma Takao led portion of DAMNATION as the new champions. DISASTER BOX are up first to challenge them. The interesting thing here is HARASHIMA was left out of the match when he lost a game of Rock Paper Scissors against the rest of the unit. Right now he has no match for Sumo Hall booked yet. He will certainly end up having a DDT Extreme Title defence but against who is the big question.
