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.

3. Revenge Match: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with an Inverted Crab Hold (7:27).

5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura when Namiguchi pinned Ken Ohka after Kenso Ohka did the Spear Of Fire From The Heart (18:30).

The Twin Ganbare War continued with the original promotion and its counterfit battling each other in a Tag Team Match. Both teams came out to “Bad Communication” and a ringside brawl was quick to happen. Shibata interfered to help out Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling but Ken Ohka got rid of him and hit Osamu Namiguchi with the Spear Of Fire. The referee counted the pin until Shibata pulled him out of the ring. Namiguchi gave Ohka the Lanakila-X then Kenso Ohka hit his version of the Spear Of Fire. Namiguchi got the pin while Shibata held onto Shuichiro Katsumura outside the ring. Kenso gave the referee a Vertical Drop Brainbuster after the match. Shibata was introduced as the newest member of Shin Ganpuro. When they left, Ken Ohka tried to rally his fans. He’s spent four years building Ganbare☆Wrestling and no matter how bad things get he will always be proud of the company. He’s not going to quit if he doesn’t have any talent. If that was true he would have quit wrestling ten years ago. He challenged Shin Ganpuro to a 6-Man Tag for 11th February. It will be Ken Ohka, Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki Vs Namiguchi, Kenso Ohka & Shibata!

Shinichiro Tominaga’s re-introduction to K-DOJO continued with a tag match with him and Hi69 against Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi. Although he lost, Tominaga is getting noticed. Oishi pointed out that everyone in the ring was an ex-K-DOJO wrestler. Asahi shook his head in denial then told Tominaga to get ready to visit Chiba for their participation in K-DOJO’s upcoming Tag League.

Mars Spector refused to let go of the Crab Hold on Chikara after beating him. The referee was able to break them up and Yumehito Imanari then ran in to confront Spector and challenge him to a match next month. Without saying a word, Spector accepted. During the closing speeches, Imanari said he’s been secretly training at the DDT dojo specifically for this challenge.

Ai Shimizu is now zero for two in her trial series after losing to Hiroyo Matsumoto. Her third match in the series will be against Cassandra Miyagi!

Imanari was excited to team with Bambi again but the feeling was not mutual. Either way they won their match when Bambi hit Masayuki with the Standing Shining Wizard then Imanari followed up with a Busaiku Knee Kick that now has a name based around his big girl fetish.

Shota was brought into the ring at the end of the show. He is getting knee surgery that will put him out of action for the rest of the year. All the wrestlers on the roster who previously had surgery gave him words of encouragement and wished him the best.

*V2 for Yuu.

joshi17-lastride

For the second year in a row Tokyo Joshi Pro was in Korakuen Hall for a big show held on 4th January. One year ago, Yuu had her debut pro wrestling match with the group. Today she was defending the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Championship in the main event. Her opponent Syoko Nakajima was part of last year’s main event too fighting to be the first champion. Unfortunately for her she was defeated again. Yuu unexpectedly used a Last Ride Power Bomb, in tribute to the late Koichiro Kimura apparently, putting Nakajima away. Yuu is looking forward to defending the title many more times and she didn’t have to wait long for a new challenger to appear. Reika Saiki approached her in the ring to congratulate Yuu. Saiki called herself muscular, healthy and motivated so how about a title shot? Yuu accepted the challenge. She’s defending the belt but she’s going to treat the championship like it is hers to win!

joshi17-akai-martha

Fresh back from Paris, Saki Akai returned to Tokyo Joshi and this time she was accompanied by her faithful maid Martha. Miyu Yamashita did the polite thing and greeted Martha but it was clear she didn’t trust her. She was proven right to do so when Martha distracted the referee while Akai was in a Camel Clutch. Yamashita broke it to go after Martha but when she turned back Akai was there to do a Big Boot. Yamashita ducked and Martha took the boot to the face instead. Yamashita hit the Attitude Adjustment but only got a two count. Akai dodged the Crash Rabbit Heat and got the pin with the Two Step Face Kick. Akai played it off like the result was no big deal. She offered to help lift Yamashita back up to her feet but then she kicked her again. She told Tetsuya Koda to contact her later about appearing in a match on 21st January. She would like to team up with Martha for that match so Koda better go looking for their opponents.

joshi17-clown-candice

Mil Clown defeated the returning Candice LeRae, avenging her twin sister’s loss to the Canadian one year ago. At one point LeRae fought dirty by pushing Daisuke Kiso into the ropes to knock Clown off of the top turnbuckle. However Clown recovered and caught LeRae in the Mil Clutch α for the flash pin.

joshi17-towerbridge

Cheer♡1 and LinQ performed together after Match #2 but two of their members wrestled each other later in the show. Itoh Maki kicked Reika Saiki as often as she could but a Headbutt from Saiki slowed her down. Maki kept trying to fight back until she was locked into the Tower Bridge and had to submit. Maki was happy to wrestle in Korakuen Hall despite only having her debut match three weeks ago. She hopes pro wrestling will bring in more fans over to her idol career with LinQ. The group is going to reshuffle its members in June and she doesn’t want to get fired!

joshi17-wives

Love was in the air for Match #3. Joey Ryan & Laura James kissed each other and wished everyone a happy new year during their entrance. Then Inoue Mic & Ai Shimizu did the same. Ryan was there to be the referee and ring announcer Mic introduced Shimizu as his “beloved and unbelievably cute wife”. Their opponents Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko came armed with the premium New Year issue of Zexy Magazine. Ryan was biased towards his wife’s team but Nonoko did her best to seduce him during the match. When Takigawa was ready to use her magazine as a weapon both husbands ran to protect their wives. During the confusion Takigawa accidentally knocked out Nonoko with the magazine, Ryan put his lollipop into Takigawa’s mouth and Shimizu pinned her with the Fishergirl Suplex.

joshi17-momochi

Match #2 was changed from a Tag Team bout to a 3 Way Match when Akane Miura caught the flu and was taken off the show. The match also served as ring announcer Minami Momochi’s graduation from Tokyo Joshi. She received streamers from the crowd during the announcements. She also got involved in the match, helping Hyper Misao fight the demonic Maho Kurone. Momochi gave Kurone a Neckbreaker Drop and Misao then hit the I Am A Hero. However Rika Tatsumi took over the match and won when she put Kurone in the Dragon Sleeper.

joshi17-nodoka-cherry

Before Nodoka-oneesan took on her mentor Cherry in the opener, she invited Momochi to participate in Ping Pong Exercises with her one more time. When that was done Cherry came down but she did not want to go through the pre-match formalities. After the match though she embraced Nodoka and supported her for putting up a good fight.

Order Of Elimination: Nodoka-oneesan, Nonoko, Hyper Misao, Rika Tatsumi, Syoko Nakajima, Akane Miura, Azusa Takigawa, Yuu, Mil Clown and Maho Kurone.

3. Muscle Offer Match: Danshoku Dino, Yasu Urano & Ken Ohka Vs Antonio Honda, Choun-Shiryu & Pedro Takaishi ended in a Draw after a Groom Explosion (10:29).
4. Mic Inoue & Ai Shimizu Marriage Memorial Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Sanshiro Takagi, HARASHIMA & Shigehiro Irie defeated Yoshihiro Takayama, Akito & Kazusada Higuchi when HARASHIMA pinned Akito with the Somato (11:43).

DDT ring announcer Inoue Mic and voice actress/joshi wrestler Ai Shimizu got married back in August but this week was their actual wedding. DDT threw them a special party to celebrate it. Attendees weren’t aware of what DDT had planned until they arrived at the venue and saw a wrestling ring set up. Inoue & Shimizu were hosting a special DDT wrestling show!

Everyone in the main event tried to get the bride and groom involved by having them chop the wrestlers as they were held in place. Yoshihiro Takayama was in a good mood and grabbed a spectator’s phone. He then took photos of the wrestlers as they were put in the Cobra Stretch. Akito paused after giving a Dragon Screw to HARASHIMA so he could congratulate the happy couple. The others gave their congratulations after the match.

The Muscle brand reappeared for the special occasion and it included a PowerPoint presentation by Super Sasadango Machine. Sasadango spoke about his recent heart surgery and how lonely he felt while staying in the hospital. He was so lonely that he kept track of all the times his friends either visited him or kept in touch while he was hospitalised. Danshoku Dino visited him twice, Ken Ohka visited once and he put Yasu Urano down with 0.3 visits because Urano tweeted him twice and also sent a LINE message. However Sasadango’s other friends Antonio Honda, Choun-Shiryu and Pedro Takaishi never came to see him. So Sasadango set up a match between his good friends against his bad friends. Both teams were given cocktails to drink before the match began. However Sasadango revealed afterwards that the cocktail given to his bad friends contained laxatives that would kick in after 10 minutes! During the match Yumehito Imanari took Shimizu captive and held her for Ohka to Spear. That was when the laxatives kicked in and Ohka collapsed with stomach cramps. Inoue came to the rescue but he also began suffering cramps. It turned out he drank from the tainted cocktail too! Yukinori Matsui had to call off the match due to wrestlers collapsing as well as the bad smell that was now surrounding the ring.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi sang “Love Is Over” for the bride and groom but Daisuke Sasaki cut him off.

Former Tokyo Joshi wrestler KANNA was in attendance. She posed with Shimizu for some of the wedding photographs.

1. Real Tiger Mask Vs Rikidozan III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Chikara with the Jumping Cross Armbreaker (7:25).
2. Ganpuro Special Mixed Tag: American Balloon & Sayaka Obihiro defeated Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu when Obihiro pinned Shimizu with the Bath (10:09).
3. G-COSMOS 2016 in Prince: Takafumi Ito defeated Rionne Fujiwara with a Crooked Headscissors (10:30).
4. Double Main Event I: Shota & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Yukihiro Abe & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shota pinned Tominaga with a Kido Clutch (16:07).
5. Double Main Event II – Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Osamu Namiguchi & Kenso Ohka defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with a Spear (12:24).

The show began with Osamu Namiguchi welcoming everyone to Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling. He said the theme of Shin Ganpuro is major pro wrestling and the main event would prove that. All of the regular Ganbare☆Wrestling matches happening before the main event were just toilet breaks as far as he was concerned. Ken Ohka stormed out and said he will show Namiguchi what the real Ganpuro is like in the main event.

Namiguchi had a big surprise in store for Ohka. The second member of Shin Ganpuro was revealed to be KENSO! However, KENSO came out to Ohka’s entrance music and wore matching gear. He is now Kenso Ohka! Not only did KENSO steal Ohka’s gimmick but he stole his finisher as well when he pinned Yumehito Imanari with the Spear. KENSO calls it a major Spear that is completely different from the fake one Ken Ohka does. Shuichiro Katsumura unexpectedly came out to confront Shin Ganpuro. He doesn’t see himself as a Ganpuro wrestler but he likes it here and won’t stand for this copycat coming in to ruin things. He invited Ken Ohka & Imanari to come train with him in his gym. Ohka said that Ganpuro stands for Ken Ohka, Ganpuro stands for Yumehito Imanari and Ganpuro stands for Shuichiro Katsumura. Together they will fight against Shin Ganpuro!

Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu both felt sorry for American Balloon’s sagging man boobs. Balloon’s man boobs came in handy when he used them to stop Shimizu from giving Sayaka Obihiro the Kamikaze. Obihiro then rolled Shimizu over for the win. Ohka was critical of Shimizu losing the match and encouraged her to try harder for her next match. Ohka said by the time Shimizu’s Ganpuro trial series is done she will become a worthy pro wrestler. Her next match in this series will be against Shota.

Ganpuro will run a special 15th Anniversary show for Ken Ohka at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 22nd December. Ohka has a certain opponent in mind that he is eager to wrestle against but cannot guarantee if he can even negotiate with him. Imanari wants to put together a special women’s match for the show. His original idea was Bambi & Manami Kanda Vs Viper and somebody else. However it seems that Viper is unavailable on that date. Ohka promised Imanari that he will find two beautiful wrestlers to take on Bambi & Kanda.

ohka-onita

After months of preparation the day finally came for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Ohka had taken a page out of Atsushi Onita’s book by promising to retire if today’s show had failed to sell out. Thankfully the promotion’s first show in Korakuen Hall turned out to be a success with over a 1,000 fans in attendance. Ohka took big risks in the ring as well as out of it. The main event was a No Rope Barbed Wire Street Fight Tornado 8-Man Tag Team Death Match with Ohka’s team versus Onita’s team. Those two fought each other while chaos reigned around them. Shota was put through a table by an Onita Piledriver. Yumehito Imanari & Mitomi Masayuki gave Onita a Double Brainbuster onto a barbed wire board. Imanari then brought in a barbed wire bat to use on Onita’s team. Ohka took his punishment and got the crowd to rally behind him. An opening came when Ohka ducked under Onita’s red mist. Osamu Namiguchi was blinded instead! Ohka gave Namiguchi the Fire Thunder Bomb but Hideki Hosaka stopped the pin. Ohka then hit the Flame Spear and this time there was nobody there to stop him.

ohka-mist-namiguchi

After the match Namiguchi demanded Onita to face him but Onita told him it’s enough. Onita invited Ohka to come over to the next FMW show on 24th November and congratulated him on a successful show. Namiguchi said he wasn’t convinced and he will crush Ganpuro but Onita ignored him and began spraying water everywhere. When that was over Ohka had some important announcements to make. He is getting married and he will also become a father in December!

fujita-marriage

Saki Maemura/Fujita had her first match back from retirement and one of her opponents was her ex-husband Minoru Fujita. Madoka and Bambi were also involved playing the role of their step-children. The crowd booed whenever Minoru attacked Saki. At one point somebody in the crowd yelled “Mom!” to motivate Saki. It looked to be all over when Minoru gave her the Tombstone Piledriver. But Bambi turned on Minoru when she stopped the pin with a Shining Wizard! Madoka then gave Minoru the Ranhyei and Saki hit a low altitude Frankensteiner for the three count. After the match Saki told Minoru there is nothing she regrets from their relationship. She’s thinks wrestling is very good so Minoru should continue doing it until he’s dead. Minoru understood. A year ago he came into Ganpuro spitting venom but over time he learned to work hard for his wrestling. He doesn’t know what lies ahead but he’ll make sure to do something his and Saki’s children will be proud of.

tominaga-asahi

Shinichiro Tominaga won Shiori Asahi’s respect with their match together. They were only in K-DOJO together for a brief amount of time before Tominaga quit and moved over to Union Pro. Asahi told him that today might not be the end of their story. If Tominaga is motivated to come back to K-DOJO some day then Asahi will be there waiting for him.

katsumura-ito

With all of the chaos happening elsewhere on the show it was nice to have something more straightforward. That’s where Shuichiro Katsumura and Takafumi Ito came in. Katsumura kept trying to lock in the Cross Armbreaker but Ito did what he could to break away. Finally Katsumura applied the move with nowhere for Ito to go. Ito never tapped out but the referee had to stop the match for his safety. Katsumura was declared the winner although Ito was dissatisfied with the result.

ishii-shootingstar

Keisuke Ishii decided to pull out something special for his first match against Yukihiro Abe in years. Ishii won the match with a Shooting Star Press! It was crooked but it did the job. Ishii said the show’s theme was surprise so that was his surprise.

ganpuro-gatoh

The opener was a showcase for Ganpuro’s women as Aoi Ishibashi & Ai Shimizu took on Emi Sakura & “Kotori” from Gatoh Move. Shimizu almost won with a Fisherman Suplex on “Kotori” but she kicked out of the pin. “Kotori” held Shimizu back while Sakura got the three count on Ishibashi with La Magistral Cradle.

shibata-royale

A dark match Battle Royal was held featuring the colourful cast of misfits and oddities that have wrestled in Ganpuro during its existence. Fumihito Kihara and Naoshi Sano focused on fighting each other from the moment the bell rang. Both of them continued fighting each other. Choun-Shiryu tried to Headbutt Mr. No but only hurt himself doing so. American Balloon used his massive man boobs to block Mr. No’s Headbutt much to everyone’s disgust. As the eliminations piled up Dr. Kiriko grabbed Balloon and force fed him some mystery medicine to make him faint. Mars Spector cleared the ring until it was down to just him and Shibata. A missed kick from Spector sent him over the top rope and Shibata knocked him off to be the last man standing. Shibata’s prize for winning is one wish to be granted by Ken Ohka within reason.

5. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Yuu defeated Miyu Yamashita (c) by TKO with the Katahajime (14:26).
*Miyu Yamashita fails in V3. Yuu becomes the 2nd TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

We have a new TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion! After an almost 9 month reign as the first champion, Miyu Yamashita fell to her toughest challenge yet. In fact, the new champion Yuu had her debut match on the same show where Yamashita was crowned the first champion. Yamashita threw everything that she could from the Attitude Adjustment to a Cross Arm German Suplex to the Crash Rabbit Heat. But Yuu caught Yamashita in the Katahajime and squeezed the life out of her, winning the match by TKO. When Yamashita regained consciousness she hadn’t the energy to shake Yuu’s hand so she instead bumped Yuu’s shoulder with her fist in congratulations before being helped out of the ring. When Yuu received the title belt she said she was the absolute champion and now she wants to shine more. Rika Tatsumi entered the ring and congratulated Yuu. But she also threw out a challenge. Tatsumi said she has recently become stronger and a championship to go along with her new success would be cool. Yuu accepted the challenge but warned Tatsumi that Yamashita thought she was invincible. Now look what happened to her.

It is now time for KANNA to say farewell to Tokyo Joshi Pro. She was one of the first trainees for the promotion but decided to call time on her wrestling career to become a rapper. For her final match she was reunited with Saki Akai and Ai Shimizu to reform the posh Biishiki-gun group for one night only. Akai was misinformed and thought KANNA was going off to do musicals in Broadway. She prefers the orchestra to rap. Biishiki-gun won their match when Akai gave Syoko Nakajima a PK from the apron, Shimizu gave Akane Miura a Tornado DDT and KANNA got the pin on Maho Kurone with the Spear Of Versailles. Akai told KANNA after the match she was a rose in full bloom. The rest of the roster gave her bouquets and said their goodbyes. Yamashita said she didn’t want to cry before her match but after spending four years training and wrestling with KANNA she was sad to see her leave. KANNA thanked everyone for supporting her and wished herself luck on travelling down a new road.

While Tatsumi is gaining confidence with her win today, her opponent Yuka Sakazaki was distraught over losing. Sakazaki couldn’t muster up the enthusiasm to speak in the ring, called herself weak and left feeling upset. All she said in a backstage interview is after all her training leading up to today she just feels like a useless child.

Tokyo Joshi Pro will hold their second show in Korakuen Hall on 4th January, 2017! Yuu’s goal is to stay as the champion and sell out the show for her one year anniversary.
