1. Yasu Urano defeated Masato Kamino with a Wristlock (10:32).
2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano & Tatsuhiko Yoshino when SAGAT pinned Nakano with the Goregrind (11:40).
3. Sento Minzoku Vs Best Stretchmen: Ryuichi Sekine, Daiki Shimomura & Minoru Fujita defeated Best Stretchman V3, Best Stretchman Amazon & Stretchman Man when Sekine submitted V3 with the Combine (11:40).
4. Takumi Tsukamoto & Jun Masaoka defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Tsukamoto pinned FUMA with a School Boy (12:38).
5. Isami Kodaka Returns To War: Naoki Tanizaki defeated Isami Kodaka with a Reverse Cradle (12:27).
6. NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles: Fuminori Abe & Ikuto Hidaka (c) defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizara when Abe submitted Nakatsu with the O-Manjigatame (19:46).
*V3 for Fuminori Abe & Ikuto Hidaka.

Fuminori Abe sent his message loud and clear. By making Ryota Nakatsu submit he now wants a shot at the Union MAX Title! Abe admits he doesn’t know about the history of the championship or who has fought for it before him. But he thinks the two strongest wrestlers in BASARA are himself and Nakatsu. He has to beat Nakatsu to become the strongest and lead BASARA into the future! Nakatsu didn’t like hearing that because he thinks he is BASARA’s future. The title match takes place on 29th January.

The return of Isami Kodaka fro injury was spoiled by Naoki Tanizaki. When Kodaka avoided the Implant it led to a scramble of pins that Tanizaki got the best of, countering one Cradle into another for the three count. The defeat stops any immediate chance Kodaka had of getting a Union MAX Title rematch with Nakatsu. Kodaka said he feels the pain but this is pro wrestling. BASARA moved on while he was gone. It’s now his goal to catch up and overtake everyone else!

Takumi Tsukamoto held onto the back of FUMA’s pants during the School Boy to pin him. The two fought after the match and had to be pulled apart.

In Match #2 Takato Nakano went for a Swan Dive but SAGAT caught him with the Goregrind in midair for the win.

It is now confirmed that the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match is the main event for DDT’s first show of the year. #STRONGHEARTS defend against ALL OUT and there’s a few small stories to keep track of. CIMA wants Akito to take the fall so #STRONGHEARTS will have swept over the entire ALL OUT unit. CIMA is also encouraging Duan Yingnan to beat Konosuke Takeshita to raise the newcomer’s reputation. Takeshita is riding a wave of momentum by winning the D-Ou Grand Prix as well as the New Year Shuffle Tag Tournament. #STRONGHEART’s only defeat in DDT happened because of Akito and he’s the sole person in the company to claim a win over the invaders. Yuki Iino is eager to show what he learned teaming with Daisuke Sekimoto on the New Year’s Eve show.

The 3 Way Tag is now a Ladder match with an otoshidama gift envelope hanging above the ring for the wrestlers to fight over.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019

2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao Vs Yuna Manase Vs Veda Scott

6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima & Riho
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Ito

For those attending this show, it will end at around 2:30pm so you’ll have plenty of time to get ready for the Tokyo Dome afterwards.

Will Miyu Yamashita’s curiosity about Maki Ito’s abilities get in the way of her own performance? Two months ago she intentionally beat Ito with a Crab Hold in order to see how Ito would recover her momentum. A month later Ito was able to pin Yamashita as part of a 2/3 Falls Tag Match so Ito is capable of beating the champion even if it’s by fluke. Yamashita is certain they will have an interesting match together and wants to find out what version of Ito shows up for the big main event. Ito thinks this is the most special TOKYO Princess Title match ever. She knows that the fanbase are expecting her to lose but that only means they won’t see it coming when she wins! Ito lost a lot and went through many twists and turns to get here. If she becomes champion, fans can look at her and think “Maybe I am a loser like Ito, but I might be able to win like her too.”

The Magical Sugar Rabbits are determined to hold onto the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles because the championship is what makes their team. They will always be on good terms but should they lose the belts to the Twin Cam Monsters then it would greatly diminish their bond. The belts are what brought them together in the first place and they’re having too much fun together to let it fade away like that.

5. DAMNATION Vs ALL OUT!: Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Paulie Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles & STRONGEST-K TAG Titles: Mike Bailey & MAO (K/c) Vs Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi (S/c)

Shuji Ishikawa has signed a contract with All Japan which means he won’t be around for DAMNATION any more. Daisuke Sasaki tweeted that he now has to look for a new pet. Maybe Mad Paulie can cheer him up. Will Sasaki be in the right mindset for Takeshita at Sumo Hall next month? Was he even in the right mindset before?

Osaka World Pavilion

1. Best Stretchman V3 & Stretchman Man defeated Takato Nakano & Yasu Urano when V3 pinned Nakano with the Best Stretch Bomb (9:04).
2. BASARA World’s Three Big Singles Match ~Yoga Also Handled Care~: Naoki Tanizaki defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi with the Implant (12:01).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto & Jun Masaoka defeated Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT when Masaoka pinned Kubo with the Caldera (12:50).

5. Ryuichi Sekine & Minoru Fujita defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa when Sekine pinned Takizawa with a Cradle (17:00).
6. BASARA World’s Three Big Singles Match ~FUMA FEST extra track~: HUB defeated FUMA with the Snake Knife Package Hold (19:14).

After the main event HUB told FUMA it’s been a long time since they first met in Okinawa Pro around 6 or 7 years ago. Today was HUB’s first match in a month because he was recovering from an injury. He was afraid to wrestle today because he didn’t trust his relationship with FUMA. He is delighted to be proven wrong and he thanked FUMA and BASARA for the match today. FUMA called the result a perfect defeat for him. His goal for a long time was to be good enough to beat HUB and he is now more motivated than ever to achieve it. HUB encouraged FUMA to continue on as the leader of the Iron Family. FUMA promoted the next “FUMA FEST” to the Osaka crowd and apologised to them that the only show of the “tour” is in Tokyo. He brought up the idea of bringing “FUMA FEST” to Osaka next year.

The Sento Minzoku team told Ryota Nakatsu he has to keep leading BASARA as the Union MAX Champion while Isami Kodaka is absent. They warned him it’s a big challenge and he should be able to take it. Sento Minzoku then attacked Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa until Naoki Tanizaki surprised everyone by coming to the rescue. Sento Minzoku fled and Nakatsu accepted their challenge. He wants BASARA’s strongest to join together. He knows this is sudden but Nakatsu asked Tanizaki to join his sider. Nakatsu accepted and we now have a new unit. Ryota Nakatsu, Naoki Tanizaki and Akiyori Takizawa will fight for BASARA against Sento Minzoku, the Iron Family, the Best Stretch wrestlers and so on!

Jun Masaoka is starting to win more and more in his BASARA appearances. This time he got the pin on Yusuke Kubo and that got under the masked man’s skin. Kubo attacked Masaoka after their tag match and the two had to be pulled apart.

Tanizaki played along with Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s yoga antics. It went to the point where Tanizaki worked as a base for Hiroshi’s stretches. Hiroshi ended up putting himself in position for Tanizaki to drop him with the Implant.

5. Two Major Renaming Matches – Name Contra Name: Best Stretchman V3 defeated Banana Senga with the Explosive Axe Bomber (12:26). (Special Referee: Tsutomu Oosugi)
*Hercules Senga is supposed to be renamed Banana Senga for the rest of his life. Instead he will become a Best Stretchman.
6. Isami Kodaka Debut 16th Anniversary Memorial Match: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji when Hidaka pinned Kodaka with the Iwami Ginzan (15:10).
7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final: Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA with the V Slider (17:56).

Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA in a wild match to win this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~! The match found its way outside the ring a couple of time with FUMA Double Stomping Nakatsu along one of the rows. FUMA later climbed one of the nearby counters and jumped off so he could do the Heavy Metal Anthem. Nakatsu moved out of the way and FUMA landed on the floor. Both of them narrowly returned to the ring in time to continue fighting. Nakatsu avoided FUMA’s Jawbreaker Kick and blocked a Wrist Clutch Exploder to gain control of the match. Nakatsu then hit several Buzzsaw Kicks, a German Suplex and finished FUMA off with the V Slider to win. He thanked FUMA for the match and told him they will face each other again someday. Nakatsu received the 500,000 yen prize money and passed it over to Ryuichi Sekine. He then told everyone his next plan. He wants to challenge for the Union MAX Title at Korakuen Hall on 21st September! He knows Naoki Tanizaki is out there somewhere listening. He better be ready for him!

Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji did well teaming together but ultimately couldn’t overcome Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita. Kodaka & Marufuji did sandwich Knee Strikes to their opponents and Kodaka even did a Shirauni. Hidaka recovered to stun Kodaka with a High Kick and got the three count with the Iwami Ginzan Gutbuster. All four wrestlers shook hands after the match. Kodaka also appealed for a singles match with Marufuji. Backstage Kodaka and Marufuji joked about the idea. Marufuji said he doesn’t want to do it. Kodaka’s response was he won’t book Marufuji for his 20th Anniversary show. Marufuji said he will buy a ticket and come anyway. In all seriousness, Marufuji was honored to be chosen by Kodaka to be his partner for this big occasion. He doesn’t know if he will come back but Kodaka can always get in contact with him.

There were two gigantic matches with everything on the line today. Never mind the Heaven Summit Final or Kodaka’s Anniversary, there were wrestling names on the line! Tsutomu Oosugi had a busy day by being the referee for both matches. First up, Ryuichi Sekine got the upset victory over Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. It took some effort but Sekine kept the former MAX Champion down with the Dragon Kick. The result means that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi must now be renamed Trans-Am ★ Ryuji. He describes today as Armageddon but accepts his fate. He is already teaching the fans how to pronounce his new name.

The 2nd Name Contra Name bout had the stakes reversed. This time the loser between Best Stretchman V3 and Banana Senga would be forced to keep their name for the rest of their life! At first Oosugi didn’t know what side to take. Both wrestlers tried to make him pose with them only for the other guy to cut them off. When Senga pinned Stretchman with his feet on the ropes for leverage, Oosugi refused to count and told Senga he is judging this match fairly. Stretchman began taking the match so seriously that he stripped out of his costume and fought with even more spirit. He put Senga away with the Explosive Axe Bomber. Hercules Senga must now stay as Banana Senga forever! Senga accepted his fate until Stretchman changed his mind. Senga is no longer going to be a banana. Senga is now going to become a Stretchman! Senga protested but V3 knocked him out with the Trigger Point and carried him out of the ring laughing maniacly. Next month will see the debut of a third Best Stretchman! Backstage Gouma Ryu tried to stop them because without Hercules Senga around, the Pro Wrestling Trials no longer have a prosecutor.

Takuya Nomura’s first visit to BASARA saw him pitted against three of the more colorful characters in the Metal Family. He didn’t know what to think of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi shrugging off his kicks with the power of yoga. Nomura & Manabu Hara’s kicks were able to leave a mark eventually but their reliance on doing them allowed both Hiroshi & Yusuke Kubo to vitally counter them with Dragon Screws. SAGAT withstood Fuminori Abe’s Octopus Hold and he hit the Goregrind to win one for the Metal Family.

Gouma Ryu relied heavily on Isami Kodaka distracting the referee to have even a slight chance of beating Yoshihisa Uto. The distractions meant the ref missed Ryu tapping out to a Crab Hold. He also missed Ryu hitting Uto with his law book. Ryu thought he had something when he successfully gave Uto the Running Neckbreaker Drop. It all came crashing down though when Uto cut him off with a Lariat. From there Uto picked up the win with the Reverse Tiger Driver.

The opener saw Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa being fired up to take on the veteran team of Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano. The fire was there, the experience was not. Tsukamoto trapped Nakano in a nasty looking Crab Hold to end the match.

1. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo defeated Yasu Urano & Daiki Shimomura when FUMA pinned Shimomura with the Heavy Metal Anthem (12:58).
2. Akiyori Takizawa defeated Gouma Ryu with a Step-Up Enzuigiri (6:07).
3. Best Stretchman Final Chapter? “Why Did They Have To Fight?”: Banana Senga & SAGAT defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Best Stretchman Amazon when Senga pinned V3 with a Cradle (9:23).
4. Isami Kodaka, Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano when Fujita pinned Nakano with the Tombstone Piledriver (15:29).
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Manabu Hara with the Ground Cobra Twist (11:24).
6. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Ryota Nakatsu defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the V Slider (16:37).

Ryota Nakatsu wins the battle between the two Cavalry wrestlers to advance in the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. Nakatsu targeting of Ryuichi Sekine’s left arm paid off when the damage prevented Sekine from using the Let’s Combine hold to its fullest effect. From there Nakatsu out-kicked his friend and got the win with the V Slider. Even though he lost, Sekine was overjoyed that Nakatsu beat him in a spirited match. He gave him his support for the rest of the tournament.

The other Heaven Summit match of the show saw Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi beating Manabu Hara to advance. Hara looked to be the better wrestler with High Kicks, Cross Armbreakers and Suplexes but Hiroshi trapped him in a Cobra Twist to get the surprise three count. Hiroshi said in his backstage interview that a major theme of pro wrestling is pain. He identifies with physical pain because of the injuries and illnesses he has suffered in the last couple of years. The yoga he does now helps him handling mental pain. He still feels the pain, all of Hara’s moves made sure of that. But without having to worry about pain, Hiroshi can now see pro wrestling matches as different puzzles. Today he was able to solve one of them.

Isami Kodaka talked about how comfortable he is wrestling with Minoru Fujita and Ikuto Hidaka. Today the three of them were able to learn how to wrestle as a trio together. However Kodaka also used a Shiranui during today’s match and he did it for a good reason. Kodaka wants to have a tag match against Fujita & Hidaka on 12th July. Who is Kodaka’s partner going to be? Naomichi Marufuji! Fujita & Hidaka accepted the challenge.

The stress Hercules Senga has been getting from his feud with the Best Stretchmen finally made him snap. He came out dressed in a banana suit and wanted to be called Banana Senga. SAGAT kind of joined in by painting his own face yellow. Senga blocked the Double Stretch Kick by pushing SAGAT into the Stretchmen’s way. Senga then Cradled Best Stretchman V3 to steal the victory. This match was supposed to end the feud but this new turn in the story made V3 demand one more match on 17th July then another final match on the 28th! They will do their final match as many times as they want!!!

For some reason Gouma Ryu thought that wrestling barefoot would give him an advantage over Akiyori Takizawa. It didn’t work.

6. Union MAX Title – Doki! Hardcore Can Match: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Giga Ladder Break (16:12).
*V5 for Isami Kodaka.

The main event had barely finished when Naoki Tanizaki ran into the ring and attacked Isami Kodaka. Tanizaki grabbed the Union MAX Title and said on 3rd May he will challenge Kodaka for the championship at Korakuen Hall! Tanizaki then told everyone that his home promotion Dove Pro Wrestling will be crowning a new champion on 1st April. If he wins the Dove Title then he will also put it on the line against Kodaka to make it a double title match! Takumi Tsukamoto tried to take the MAX Title back from Tanizaki, telling him “It’s our belt!” Tanizaki attacked and gave him the Implant. However, Tsukamoto would not let go of the belt. Tanizaki gave up and left the ring while Tsukamoto handed the belt back to Kodaka.

Best Stretchman Amazon is Tsutomu Oosugi. He promised to take on the gimmick after he failed to win the Union MAX Title at the start of this month. He submitted Gouma Ryu with a Grounded Octopus Hold. Hercules Senga asked for a rematch against the Best Stretch team on 20th April.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi continues to pay tribute to Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi by using his Perfect Plex to win matches. Ryuichi even yelled out Hiroshi’s name as he did the move.

Akiyori Takizawa showed a lot of spirit when fighting against Ryuichi Sekine. There was one moment when Sekine put him in a Camel Clutch and Takizawa broke it by biting onto the bottom rope.
