Every year the Beer Garden series is such good fun that you can’t blame some of the other promotions for joining in. Ganbare☆Pro held their Beer Garden-like show before DDT closed out the weekend. In the main event, a squad of Ganpro wrestlers fought against a group from the TTT promotion. This match continued the rivalry between the two groups spearheaded by Ken Ohka and Guts Ishijima. TTT got off to a strong start by eliminating Kouki Iwasaki and Yumehito Imanari back to back. The entrance of Shuichiro Katsumura quickly turned the tables when he tapped out Akiyori Takizawa and then knocked Masked Mystery out of the ring. The final part of the match saw Ohka & Katsumura beat Ishijima & TORU to give Ganpro the victory. However TTT went off to lick their wounds and gave the message that this inter-promotional feud is not over yet. Ohka is open to the idea of beating Ishijima as many times as he wants.

Yuna Manase defeated Yuna Mizumori in the P1 Climax (changed from BEST OF THE SUPER Pocchari) and received 10,000 yen as her prize. However when she was given the giant cheque she tore it in half and gave one piece over to Mizumori to share the prize. She welcomed Mizumori to Pocchari Joshi and Nikkan Lee also threw in her support for the group. At the end of the show Manase confronted Ohka and told him her idea to make Ganbare☆Joshi even bigger. She wants a singles match against Saki Akai! Ohka promised to meet with DDT management later in the night to put the match together.

*V1 for Astronauts.

Astronauts say that the momentum of BASARA and Big Japan cannot be stopped by anything, even by Coronavirus or the Olympics! After failing to win the IRON FIST Tag Titles today, Ryota Nakatsu said he will now focus on regaining the Union MAX Title. That’s not all from Sparky, they want another tag title shot when SAGAT is cleared to wrestle again.

Since the MAX Title match was postponed, Minoru Fujita had to fight Gouma instead. The two ended up fighting outside and Gouma held onto Fujita’s leg long enough for both of them to get counted out. After the match Fujita promised that when he wins the MAX Title, he will first defend it against Masahiro Takanashi. He then told Gouma he will be the second defence afterwards!

On the day of the show, it was announced that Takumi Tsukamoto was no longer considered a close contact to SAGAT and is now free to leave quarantine. However he was still absent from the show because he did not have enough time to travel to the venue.

Isami Kodaka and Takumi Tsukamoto were both in close contact with him during the period and will also miss tomorrow’s show. All three of them will be absent for two weeks so they can self isolate.

The Union MAX Title match has been postponed and Minoru Fujita will face Gouma in a singles match instead. The IRON FIST Tag Titles match has been moved up to the main event with Akiyori Takizawa substituting for SAGAT.

7. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Jun Akiyama

When we last left Tetsuya Endo, he teased about having a secret training partner to help him prepare for Jun Akiyama. His only hint was this trainer is somebody who knows Akiyama inside and out. Well the secret has been revealed and that trainer is Kenta Kobashi! Endo has been training at Kobashi’s fitness gym in Tokyo after he approached Kobashi for advice. Kobashi knew about Endo beating Akiyama during the D-Ou Grand Prix but explained that a tournament match is different from a championship match. Akiyama won’t allow himself to lose to the same opponent twice in a row. He will also be more ruthless because he is now a freelancer and failing to win a championship will affect his wrestling career more than usual. His advice to Endo is to ruthlessly target Akiyama’s knees, especially the left one that he just had surgery on. If Endo can make Akiyama panic, then Endo has a chance to win. Simply doing the same stuff he did in the Grand Prix match won’t work a second time. Kobashi wants Endo to be bold and dynamic to broaden his wrestling style.

Kobashi is throwing his support behind Endo to defend the KO-D Openweight Title. He hopes to see Endo get fired up to do the Shooting Star Press just like he he used to fire up before doing the Moonsault. He also gave Endo dating advice when he found out Endo is single. Endo explained his type to him. He likes women with big boobs such as Tomomi Morisaki. Kobashi bragged about meeting Morisaki at a public event just one month ago. Also as a champion, he explained if Endo treats the belt well the belt will be happy and will always come back to him.

Kobashi will attend the show to provide special guest commentary for the main event. Akiyama has since pointed out that whenever Kobashi appears to watch his title matches, he usually wins.

Yuki Ueno is hoping to clear out all of his bitter memories of Yukio Sakaguchi beating him up. If he successfully defends the DDT UNIVERSAL Title against him then he can spend the rest of 2021 having fun and loving saunas. Ueno has been getting advice from Shinya Aoki to prepare for the match. Sakaguchi thinks the message that has been sent over the last few weeks is he’s strong while Ueno is weak. The two met for commemorative photo during the week and Sakaguchi tried to grab the belt from Ueno. Ueno told him if he wants to take pictures with the belt he should win it on the 14th. Sakaguchi punched Ueno in the stomach and posed with the belt.

Most of the women are excited for their match. Saki Akai & Maya Yukihi are motivated to team together and even form a competitive rivalry of some sort. Saori Anou on the other hand isn’t pleased to be teaming with Miyako Matsumoto. She would much rather be on the same team as Akai or Yukihi. Matsumoto says the best thing about DDT is anything is possible and you are free to do anything. To her the charm of joshi wrestling is not just the glitter but also the grime. She wants Anou to understand that so they can work as a team.

GANBARE☆PRO “CLIFFHANGER 2021”, 21/02/2021
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. Shota’s Independent Journey: Shota Vs Hyper Brave G-Valion
2. THE HALFEE Vs Watase Manase: Moeka Haruhi & Shu Sakurai Vs Mizuki Watase & Yuna Manase
3. Ganpro Vs Aka Rangers: Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Takashi Sasaki & GENTARO
4. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki & HARUKAZE (c) Vs Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga
5. STOP THE Hidaka! Special Single Match: Yumehito Imanari Vs Ikuto Hidaka

I love the name of the main event. ZERO1 had “STOP THE Matsunaga”. Ganbare☆Pro gets “STOP THE Hidaka!” It’s only fitting for the ZERO1 connection that Yumehito Imanari becomes maybe the last man standing in the way of Ikuto Hidaka. Imanari made a promise to be the messiah for Ganpro.

The new GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions already have a road map set out. The trio called DREAMS HARU TRUE want to defend the belts against Pocchari Joshi. However, Asuka demanded her team with Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga get another shot at the titles first because she will only wrestle in Ganpro for championships. She gets what she wants because Ken Ohka is worried she will walk out of the company, especially right before she could potentially become a breakout star in the AEW women’s tournament.

Ohka gets a second chance against the Aka Rangers. That’s if they can make it to the venue in time. Takashi Sasaki & GENTARO already have another match happening at a FREEDOMS and 2AW co-promoted show in Chiba earlier that day.

Even though he no longer has the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title around his waist, Shota still wants to bring the independent spirit to Ganpro. He is bringing in Hyper Brave G-Valion for a match. G-Valion is from a small Tokyo promotion called BRAVES.

8. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & MAO

MAO is happy to see his generation are now the main eventers of DDT. It’s a fight he never wants to give up. Konosuke Takeshita agrees and said the DDT Sauna Club runs in the centre of DDT. They main event Korakuen Hall, they’re main eventing Nagoya Congress Center and now they want the KO-D Tag Team Titles to add to their growing championship haul. These are just the kind of opponents Kazusada Higuchi is looking for. Also Sakaguchi disagrees about the age thing. Everyone from HARASHIMA to Danshoku Dieno are all doing their best no matter their age.

BASARA “BASARA 147 ~GLITTER~” Results

January 26, 2021

BASARA “BASARA 147 ~GLITTER~”, 26/01/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
??? Fans – Withheld

1. FUMA & Rekka defeated Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino when FUMA submitted Nakano with a Tiger Dance Hold (11:17).
2. SAGAT & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Daichi Kazato when Takizawa pinned Hiroshi with the Tilt 3 (10:24).
3. BASARA Official Rule Jacket Match: Ryota Nakatsu defeated Gouma with a Rear Naked Choke (R4 0:14).
4. Fuminori Abe, Tsutomu Oosugi, Banana Senga & Yasu Urano defeated Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine, Daiki Shimomura & Minoru Fujita when Abe pinned Sekine with a Crucifix Pin (10:22).
5. Union MAX Title: Takumi Tsukamoto (c) defeated Yusuke Kubo with a Reverse Crab Hold (15:24).
*V2 for Takumi Tsukamoto.

Yasu Urano challenged Takumi Tsukamoto for the Union MAX Title and wanted it to happen right there and then just like when he challenged for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title at Ganbare☆Pro recently. Tsukamoto asked for some rest and the two eventually agreed to have the title match on 25th February. Urano kept asking for the match to happen as soon as possible but Tsukamoto wants the match to happen at a big show like the February Shinjuku FACE event. He has a busy schedule that week in February because he will be defending the BJW Death Match Title a few days before.

Everyone in Match #4 did the Kamikaze to each other as their way of saying goodbye to Ryuichi Sekine. When it was Sekine’s turn to do it on Fuminori Abe they both broke down into tears. Sekine was encouraged to finish the move but Abe countered it into a Crucifix Pin for the three count. Isami Kodaka encouraged Sekine to enjoy his break from wrestling and to remember this is not a retirement. He will come back to the ring someday.

Match #3 was turned into an MMA style Jacket Match. Both Ryota Nakatsu and Gouma had to fight in a judo jacket with fingerless gloves. Nakatsu dominated the fight and drained Gouma’s energy until he was finally choked out in Round 4.

SAGAT & Akiyori Takizawa want to challenge for the IRON FIST TAG Titles.


BASARA “BASARA 132 ~BANQUET~” Results

BASARA “BASARA 132 ~BANQUET~”, 08/09/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
??? Fans – Withheld

1. Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura defeated Tetsuo Usui & Leo Isaka when Sekine submitted Usui with the Let’s Combine (10:35).
2. Isami Kodaka defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi with a Back Roll Clutch (8:25). (Special Referee: Gouma Ryu)
3. Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino defeated FUMA & SAGAT when Kamino pinned FUMA with a Lariat (8:47).

5. Minoru Fujita defeated Yusuke Kubo with the Samson Clutch (13:51).
6. IRON FIST TAG Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Uranowhen Oosugi pinned Tsukamoto with a Cradle (20:18).
*V5 for Speed Of Sounds.

There was a big upset in Match #3 when Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino defeated FUMA & SAGAT. The finish saw Kamino score the pin on FUMA, without a doubt the biggest in his career. This happened because FUMA hit SAGAT by mistake and SAGAT hit him with a Spear in response. This left FUMA open for Kamino to Lariat him for the victory. Afterwards trouble brewed when FUMA and SAGAT got into a fight. The Iron Family came out to break them up. FUMA left with the rest of the Iron Family but SAGAT stayed in the ring on his own. Sparky members Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa then came out and shook hands with SAGAT. They all left the ring together.

Nakano & Kamino challenged Speed Of Sounds for the IRON FIST TAG Titles after the main event.
