5. Double ★ Trans-Am Vs Cavalry!: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Ryuichi pinned Sekine with the Perfect Five (15:40).

As the ride to Korakuen Hall nears its end, BASARA had one more show to get past before the big event. The Trans-Am ★ Family were victorious over Cavalry with one Ryuichi pinning another. Ryota Nakatsu called Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi a strong wrestler but then claimed he knew his real identity. Nakatsu accused him of being Ryuichi Kawakami from Big Japan! Ryuichi denied the accusation but Nakatsu told him he didn’t care either way. When Nakatsu said he wants nothing more than the Union MAX Title, Ryuichi cut him off and said he loves the belt more.

Dove Pro Wrestling scored a big win over BASARA in a Hardcore Tag Match. Gunso’s impressive win streak in BASARA continues to grow while Naoki Tanizaki was happy to finally get his hands on Isami Kodaka. Tanizaki and Kodaka will fight again on 4th May.

Both Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama weren’t in the mood to compete in their warm up match for Korakuen Hall later this month. Neither of them had anything prepared for the bout. Kodaka, Best Stretchman V3 and Tatsuhiko Yoshino all had to motivate them into wrestling each other. The match only ended with a winner when the referee accidentally knocked over Maruyama and pushed Ryu on top of him. Gouma and Maruyama explained afterwards that they just cannot be motivated to wrestle if a criminal trial is not attached to it.

The Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament returns later this year. Kodaka is putting 500,000 yen of his own pocket money into the prize pot. The tournament begins on 4th May and lasts until 5th July.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “WANNA BE A DREAMMAKER 2017”, 04/03/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
119 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Love Call Wrestling: Yukihiro Abe defeated Chikara with a Minoru Fujita Style Cradle (8:09).
2. Osaka Vs Hokkaido Ganbare☆Wrestling International Match: Sayaka Obihiro defeated Atsushi Maruyama with a Backslide Pin (12:42).
3. G-COSMOS 2017 in Prince Special Double Bout: Takafumi Ito & Nobuhiro Tsurumaki defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Yumehito Imanari when Tsurumaki submitted Imanari with the Back Facelock (13:25).
4. Flames, Heart, Repeatedly: Mitomi Masayuki defeated Shibata with the Salty Splash (8:42).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Ken Ohka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi when Ohka pinned Namaguchi with the Spear Of Fire (16:17).

Alliances old and new were formed throughout today’s show because the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament is taking place in April. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling were defeated in the main event and Kenso Ohka placed the blame on Osamu Namiguchi. Kenso dropped a surprise and said he’ll be teaming with someone else in the tournament. He’ll be teaming with KAZMA SAKAMOTO! After Kenso left, Ken Ohka asked Shinichiro Tominaga to be enter the tournament with him. Tominaga politely declined because he already asked Hi69 to team with him. When the show was over Ohka went searching for a tag partner. Atsushi Maruyama agreed at first but then remembered he is already booked elsewhere. Both Takafumi Ito and Shuichiro Katsumura asked to team with Ohka but he couldn’t choose between them. So Ito and Katsumura decided to team together instead. Finally Ohka got a Facetime call from Ai Shimizu. She is currently in Toyama, Ohka’s hometown. Shimizu is training to become stronger and went to Toyama to learn Ohka’s secrets. To prove it she told Ohka she was on the call with his dad! When the call ended Ohka accepted that he wouldn’t find a tag partner today.

The atmosphere for Mitomi Masayuki Vs Shibata was tense as there was still some uneasiness in their friendship. Masayuki wanted to bury the hatchet but Shibata kept rejecting him. It wasn’t until the match ended that Shibata saw the light and agreed to reform Enjo-gun with Masayuki.

Yumehito Imanari was in a good mood because he just purchased a guide to Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling written by Billy Robinson. Imanari studied the book and predicted he would win his match with the Double Arm Suplex. Whatever he studied didn’t stick because he had to flick through the book again before the bell rang. His attempts to do the Double Arm Suplex failed. Ito countered the move into a Manjigatame then Tsurumaki tapped him out with the Back Facelock. Ito and Katsumura got into a brawl after the match. Ito challenged Katsumura to a singles match then admitted he was getting bored with their current situation.

Sayaka Obihiro began her match with Maruyama by warning him that she’s been taking Shorinji Kempo lessons. He didn’t take her seriously. In fact, Marutama told Obuhiro he’s been studying her matches in preparation and listed all of her signature moves as proof. He challenged her to perform those moves and then pin him so he could kick out of them. He succeeded in kicking out of all of them but an unexpected collision ended with Obihiro falling on top of him and getting the three count. Afterwards Obihiro said she is from Hokkaido, Maruyama is from Osaka and Ohka is from Toyama. She now wants to wrestle opponents from all the other prefectures in Japan.

Ohka approached Yukihiro Abe after the opening match and asked him if he had a partner in mind for the Tag League. Suddenly Keisuke Ishii appeared and did a Double Dropkick with Abe to Ohka. Ishii thinks he himself is a good choice for Abe to team with. Ishii wants to enter a tag league because it reminds him of his favourite AJPW Real World Tag League match, Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama Vs Stan Hansen & Akira Taue from 1999. Now Ishii & Abe are thinking of a team name. They will either be Return Of Young Drama or Memory Of Young Drama.

Another team was formed during the show. Nobuhiro Tsurumaki wants to team with Chikara. The two fought each other before when Tsurumaki under the mask as Mars Spector. Chikara earned his respect during those matches.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “ITSUKA NO MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016”, 22/12/2016
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
168 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Beat The Opponent! Eat Lightning, Crap Thunder! Become A Scary Guy!: Rocky Kawamura defeated Chikara with the Balboa Blow (5:55).
2. Ganpuro Special Christmas Present ~Chubby Vs Slim Beauty~: Maya Yukihi & Tequila Saya defeated Bambi & Manami Kanda when Yukihi pinned Kanda with the Wheelwind (11:25).

5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with the Spear Of Fire (18:45).
6. Ken Ohka 15th Anniversary Debut Memorial Match: Ken Ohka defeated Atsushi Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire (15:24).

From the Eternal Young Lion to the Crying Charisma of Ganbare☆Wrestling, a lot has happened to Ken Ohka in his 15 years as a pro wrestler. To celebrate his 15th Anniversary in wrestling, Ohka wanted a match against Atsushi Maruyama. Maruyama has been an inspiration to Ohka ever since he saw him wrestle a big match in 2008. Ohka was also a big Osaka Pro fan before he joined DDT. He kicked out of the Tiger Suplex and pinned Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire. Maruyama said he envies Ohka for making so many friends with his clumsy wrestling while he himself has been scattered around the wrestling scene ever since he quit Osaka Pro. Now it is Ohka who inspires Maruyama because Maruyama now wants to create his own wrestling group. If Ganpuro wants to become a major sports brand then Maruyama’s group will become a major entertainment brand. His rival will be the Yoshimoto Kogyo company!

Ohka had one more announcement to give at the end of the show. His first child was born today! The fans chanted “Dad!” at Ohka as the show ended.

The team of Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi tried to steal all of the attention with their Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling match. They wouldn’t stop talking about how the Shin Ganpuro fans are the best in the world and the Shin Ganpuro wrestlers are the best in the world too.

Even though he was able to wrestle and win his match today, Shota had some bad news to give. He will be going under surgery to his right knee in January and he is expected to miss nearly all of 2017. Ai Shimizu said wrestling Shota taught her the importance of not giving up. Her next match in her series will be against Hiroyo Matsumoto on 21st January.

Shinichiro Tominaga announced he will be teaming with Shiori Asahi as part of the BO-SO Golden Tag League in K-DOJO next year. Ohka said Tominaga will continue to tag with Hi69 in Ganpuro, booking those two against Asahi & Makoto Oishi on 21st January.

Yumehito Imanari used company money to buy female Santa costumes from Don Quijote for the women to wear during their match. Only Bambi wore her costume. Imanari then tried to help out Bambi & Manami Kanda whenever he could. That backfired when Bambi used her whip and hit Imanari by mistake. That allowed Maya Yukihi to pin Kanda without any interruption.

Rocky Kawamura screamed “Adrian!” before knocking out Chikara with a Running Punch.

Ganpuro will once again be providing matches for the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO on New Year’s weekend at Saitama Super Arena.

8. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Mike Bailey
9. KO-D Openweight Title: Shuji Ishikawa (c) Vs HARASHIMA

DDT would like to remind its fans that even though there are a lot of foreign wrestlers in Osaka this weekend, none of them are the Steiner Brothers. So don’t come to this show expecting to see the Steiner Brothers. This cannot be stressed enough, it’s a regular problem at these big shows.

There’s been a trend among the recent Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champions. Whoever holds the belt becomes so paranoid that they cannot get a good night’s sleep. They end up going about their daily business fighting to stay awake which only leaves them more vulnerable to ambushes. What’s worse is some of the wrestlers have become so obsessed over winning the title that they too are sleep deprived and have been approaching the champion in a zombie-like manner. Masahiro Takanashi is the current champion at the time of writing when he put Toru Owashi in a Sleeper Hold on an overnight bus journey to Osaka. However that means Takanashi is currently stuck in a bus with many of his challengers so don’t be surprised if there are more title changes before the show takes place.

*New Buddy Tag fail in V4. The Aldini Brothers become the 21st NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champions!

The team of Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto, together now known as The Aldini Brothers, have brought in new gold for BASARA! They challenged Ikuto Hidaka & Hayato Jr. Fujita to come over to BASARA and put their NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles on the line. The champions accepted but will now going back to ZERO1 without the titles. They graciously gave the belts over to the winners and as they left, Kodaka said how much it meant to him to wrestle them for the championship. He then asked if Hidaka will enter the annual Furinkazan tournament in ZERO1. Hidaka said he would tell him tomorrow and he will wrestle again in BASARA. Tsukamoto was thrilled with his new title. It is the first championship he won since four years ago when he was a Yokohama Shopping Street Six Man Tag Team Champion. He searched the internet before the match to learn about this NWA Tag Title and thought it looked cool when he saw pictures of it.

SAGAT was put into a challenge against some All Japan wrestlers to prepare him for Jun Akiyama. However when he was overwhelmed Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi would come in to physically defend him. The All Japan team kept hitting SAGAT with Axe Bombers until SAGAT would block them with an Axe Bomber of his own. Hiroshi would but in and make an unwilling SAGAT attempt double team moves like the Space SAGAT Torpedo 2 (Hiroshi throws SAGAT at their opponent) and the Space SAGAT Cannon (Hiroshi Dropkicks SAGAT into their opponent) but they both failed. The latter miss cost SAGAT the match when Yuma Aoyagi pinned him with a Fisherman Suplex afterwards. Hiroshi told SAGAT to look closely at himself before he faces Akiyama. Ryuichi then Chopped him.

In a preview of the Yokohama 6-Man Tag Title match, Abdullah Kobayashi made Ryota Nakatsu submit to a Crab Hold. It was supposed to be the Let’s Combine as used by Nakatsu’s teammate Ryuichi Sekine but Kobayashi’s a bit sloppy at applying the move. Sekine wasn’t impressed and said Cavalry will be taking those belts from Kobayashi’s team on Christmas Day.

Tanomusaku Toba was put on a trial by combat by Gouma Ryu against Atsushi Maruyama with Kyohei Wada as the judge. Toba was accused of leaving a Chinese beauty shop in Osaka without paying for the service. The “trial” was set up as a 3 Way match but Ryu admitted it was more of a 2 Vs 1 contest between him and Toba against Maruyama. Ryu defended Toba by claiming he is poor and couldn’t afford to pay for the items. Maruyama played prosecutor and called referee Yuya Okada up as a witness. Okada said he borrowed money to Toba that day so he should have been able to pay. Ryu called up Ryuichi Sekine and asked him what he knew about the shop. Sekine said the shop gives massages then was embarrassed by what he just admitted. Ryu told Toba that he couldn’t defend him anymore. Toba got angry and knocked out Ryu with a Straight Right punch. He mounted Ryu and began punching him. However Wada treated this as a pin and counted to three. This somehow meant Toba was declared guilty. Ryu asked Maruyama if they could do the best pro wrestling trial in history at Korakeun Hall? Maruyama agreed and so did Wada.

Also they both had their debut matches within months from each other, Maruyama debuted in June 2001 and Ohka debuted in December. Ohka cannot imagine what kind of match they will have.

The beautiful opponents for Bambi & Manami Kanda come from Ice Ribbon. Yumehito Imanari isn’t impressed even though the match was his idea. He likes his women to be bigger than Maya Yukihi & Tequila Saya so he’s rooting for Bambi & Kanda.

BASARA “VAJRA 2”, 05/02/2016
Saitama Wrestle Fighter Museum
108 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Hiroshi Fukuda defeated Koji Iwamoto with a Leg Drop (7:45).
2. 3 Way Match: SAGAT defeated Ryu Gouma and Atsushi Maruyama when SAGAT pinned Maruyama with a Modified STO (6:47).
3. Isami Kodaka & Hi69 defeated Yusuke Kubo & Tsutomu Oosugi when Kodaka pinned Kubo with the Diving Double Knee Drop (12:07).
4. Madoka & FUMA Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
5. Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Daichi Kazato with the Drake Driver (14:36).

Takumi Tsukamoto was full of praise for Daicho Kazato after the main event. He called out Isami Kodaka to talk about their upcoming match on 26th February. He said he’s been wrestling with Kodaka for four years and he’s learned a lot during that time. He is grateful for the opportunity BASARA has given him. Kodaka said he is amazed by the young wrestlers like Tsukamoto and Kazato.

BASARA’s two new tag teams went to a 20 minute draw against each other. FUMA was close to winning the match in the final seconds when he gave Ryuichi Sekine the Heavy Metal Anthem but the bell rang before he could go for the pin. Madoka also brought out a ukulele and smashed it over Sekine’s head. Madoka hasn’t completely figured out FUMA’s new obsession with heavy metal music but he promises to find his own metal music to fit in.

After the 3 Way Match Atsushi Maruyama called out Ryu Gouma for being unable to wrestle fair and square and always using weapons. He challenged Gouma to a fight and then attacked him with his Statute Book. Gouma recovered and hit the Jumping Neckbreaker. Maruyama backed off and they both agreed to settle their feud with one more 3 Way Match on 26th February.
