*V1 for Isami Kodaka.
Ryuichi Sekine prepared himself for a today to be special. He was in proper wrestling gear, had his hair freshly dyed blonde and had his sights set on winning the Union MAX Title. Sadly for him Isami Kodaka had other ideas. The one move Sekine had that could definitely beat Kodaka was the Let’s Combine Crab Hold but Kodaka was able to either reach the ropes or avoid the move entirely. Sekine tried to combat Kodaka’s Isamuashi kicks with his own Middle Kicks but the champion would not be beaten. Both wrestlers were spent after the match but agreed that they had a fun match together. Kodaka announced his next title defence will take place in March next year. He was then interrupted by a voice asking “Can I be a bit greedy?” The voice was Fuminori Abe and he entered the ring. He said during his time here in BASARA he had wanted to test himself and find out how pure a wrestler he can be. He now wants a singles match with Kodaka to discover how far he has progressed although he was hesitant to ask until now. Kodaka asked Abe if he is certain he could beat him. Abe said he is. Kodaka accepted Abe’s challenge and decided he will put the MAX Title on the line against him on 14th December. Abe then pulled out an envelope. It was an invitation letter for the upcoming Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. He confessed that he stole it from Kodaka’s luggage while Kodaka went out for a smoke earlier. Abe wanted three things: a singles match with Kodaka, a Union MAX Title match and a place in the Budokai tournament. Kodaka promised to fulfill all three requests for Abe.
The 6-Man Tag was a battle between BASARA and HEAT-UP. It broke down to where Daichi Kazato and Kazuhiro Tamura were the ones left in the ring. Kazato had Tamura beaten with the Sister Abigail when Fuminori Abe broke up the pin and trapped Kazato in an Octopus Hold. Kazato submitted, making the HEAT-UP team the winners. Both Takumi Tsukamoto and Kazato were frustrated by the loss and both said the HEAT-UP wrestlers have no guts. Tsukamoto is also annoyed that HEAT-UP might be selling more posters than BASARA at shows.
Early on in the Ryota Nakatsu Vs Minoru Tanaka match, Tanaka threatened to break Nakatsu’s hobby horse. Other than that the two had a serious match. Tanaka escaped from Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and countered with a Jumping High Kick. Nakatsu still showed life after taking a Tiger Suplex and some Buzzsaw Kicks but was down and out after Tanaka gave him the B“D”F Diving Foot Stomp.
Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi seems to be turning over a new leaf since he lost the Union MAX Title. He hugged the referee Yuya Okada at the start of his match because it was so long since he last saw him. He also wished FUMA a “Merry Christmas” after Body Slamming him. Even though he and SAGAT lost the match to IRON PRIEST, he was still happy to see FUMA & Yusuke Kubo again too. He said the Trans-Am ★ Family and IRON PRIEST have been fighting each other all year so it was time for them to let bygones be bygones and shake hands. SAGAT pulled his hand back and shouted “Woooooo!” thinking Ryuichi would do the same but he was on his own. Ryuichi punched SAGAT for misbehaving and they then did the Heavy Metal hand signs with IRON PRIEST.
The reputation of Guts Ishijima and his Guts World promotion were put up to questioning by Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama and their court of law. Maruyama accused Ishijima of defying the Labour Standards Act by forcing his workers to have a pro wrestling mentality. Maruyama’s evidence was Daisuke retiring and Toshihiko Yoshino leaving the promotion. Ryu’s defence of Guts World was “It’s a nice group.” He asked Takumi Tsukamoto what he thought of the company because he wrestled there before. Tsukamoto said he wanted to quit. Yasu Urano gave a similar answer when he was asked the question. Ishijima described his post-show antics as “Showa Style” and it involved eating and drinking until they threw up. Fuminori Abe was asked about those drinking parties and he said he couldn’t remember much outside of losing his wallet. Ishijima invited both Ryu and Maruyama to wrestle at a Guts World show. They all shook hands until Ryu and Maruyama attacked Ishijima. He fought them off with a Double Lariat and then pinned Maruyama with the Facebuster. Judge Kyohei Wada declared Ishijima was innocent.
Akiyori Takizawa came here from ASUKA PROJECT for a rematch against Takato Nakano. Their previous match took place earler this month and just like then, Takizawa won the match. This time Takizawa used a Reverse Double Chickenwing submission called the Sleng Teng to make Nakano give up.
