For the first time in almost 5 years, Ganbare☆Joshi got an entire show to themselves. This was the third of four events Ganbare☆Wrestling held in Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR today. Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Asuka got together for an exciting show against a trio representing the DDT Wrestling Classroom. Haruhi said her goal was to have a better show than the Katsumura-gun Vs Shota-gun event that took place earlier in the day.

The opening bout saw Haruhi take on Banny Oikawa in a 2 Count Fall match. With only two seconds needed to pin the opponent, the match was more tense than usual. Haruhi got one count nearfalls with a Diving Body Press and a Missile Dropkick. She was finally able to pin Oikawa with a Double Wrist Armsault.

HARUKAZE wanted a match with Yuu solely focused on mat wrestling so they both wore judo jackets. Yuu’s power was too much to handle. She used a Power Bomb to break out of a Cross Armbreaker and got a submission win by using the sleeve of HARUKAZE’s jacket to choke her out.

The last singles match of the challenge was between Asuka and Cherry in a Count Up Falls Match. Every second of a pin was added together until a target number was reached. The judges Ken Ohka, Kouki Iwasaki and Yumehito Imanari decided that the targets would be the wrestlers’ respective ages. So Asuka needed to reach 21 seconds while Cherry needed to get 45 seconds. It was an uphill battle for Cherry but her ring experience kept her on pace with Asuka. The match reached the point where Asuka was on 20 while Cherry made it to 44. One more second was needed for a winner to be declared. A Backslide Pin led to both women having their shoulders pinned at the same time so the match resulted in a draw. The team challenge would be decided in the main event.

The side attraction was a Lariat match between a bunch of mostly male wrestlers doing cross dressing gimmicks. Miss Mongol was the odd one out here. There was confusion when KEIKO (Keisuke Ishii) wrestled topless. Shigeko Deluxe (Shigehiro Irie) made her regret it with Chops in the corner. Theme songs of famous Lariat users played throughout the match. The Lariats turned to Dropkicks when the music changed to the AJW theme song. Eagle Washida (Shuhei Washida) got booed when he did Big Boots although to be fair “Soul Of A Champion” began to play so she was really doing a Giant Baba tribute. She did Neckbreaker Drops which are close enough to Lariats. She then did Sling Blades when “HIGH ENERGY” played. She then did a Rainmaker pose but Shigeko clocked her with a Lariat for the win.

The main event was a Secret Captain’s Fall Elimination match. Defeat the team captain to win but the captain would not be revealed until they were eliminated. Over The Top Rope eliminations were included and that was how the wrestlers were taken out of the match. When it came down to HARUKAZE and Cherry it was clear that they were both the captains. Cherry ended up standing on the ring apron and was knocked to the floor with a Spear to make the GanJo team the winners!

HARUKAZE said when she joined Ganpro, she was the only woman in the group so she was worried if she would be accepted. She didn’t get much cheers for her early matches but as time went by more and more fans supported her. Now she feels like she is a member of Ganpro.

This will be the first wrestling match for The Great Nita since August 2017.

Yukio Naya met with Onita and asked if he could be part of the next Bakuha Koshien show on 28th March. Onita will consider it if Naya renames himself Taiho III after his grandfather Taiho Koki.

5. GanJo Vs DDT Wrestling Classroom Full Battle 6-Woman Tag Team Elimination Match: Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE & X Vs Cherry, Yuu & Banny Oikawa

Daisuke Kiso wanted the main event to definitively decided which team is better so he made it an Elimination Tag Match.

The 2 Count match was made to even the playing field between Moeka Haruhi and the less experienced Banny Oikawa.

Both HARUKAZE and Yuu will be wrestling in judo jackets because HARUKAZE wants the match to be entirely about grappling and groundwork.

The Count-Up Fall Match adds up the pinfall counts a wrestler makes. The first to reach their total count up to a predetermined number wins. Cherry’s opponent will be revealed on the day of the show. The mystery wrestler is hinted to be very beautiful and will also be a regular for Ganbare☆Wrestling in 2020.

Keisuke Ishii, Shigehiro Irie, Shota, Shuhei Washida and Shin Suzuki were all meant to be on the show but now they will not be there. Luckily a bunch of “joshi” replacements were quickly found.

YAROZ “YAROZ PART 8”, 12/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
132 Fans

1. YaroZ-gun Vs Ikemen-gun All Out Battle!: Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated SAGAT & Naomi Yoshimura when Akito pinned SAGAT with a School Boy (10:43).
2. Reiwa’s 1st YaroZ Cover Girl Decision Match: Cherry defeated Banny Oikawa with the Cherryton Bomb (6:12).
3. FFF (Fundoshi For Future) Match: Ryuichi Sekine & Hoshitango Vs Yuki Iino & Yumehito Imanari ended in a No Contest (9:20).
4. Rounds Handicap Match: Hideki Sekine defeated Gota Ihashi & Keigo Nakamura by TKO when Sekine used a Bearhug on Nakamura (R4 1:49).
5. Sensual Novel Death Match: Naoki Tanizaki Vs Hiroshi Yamato (Special Referee: Danshoku Dieno) was won by Enya (19:33).
6. YaroZ-gun Vs Ikemen-gun All Out Battle!: Ken Ohka, Antonio Honda & Toru Owashi defeated Jiro Kuroshio, Makoto Oishi & Mizuki Watase when Honda pinned Watase with the Diving Fist Drop (12:48).

See if this sounds familiar. The Ikemen Army kidnapped the guest idol (this time it was Sakurako-san) and the YaroZ Army beat them in the main event to rescue her. The Ikemen refused to let her go but Cherry and Banny Oikawa entered the ring for the save. This time however Jiro Kuroshio and Makoto Oishi fought them off and said the usual YaroZ ending wasn’t going to be repeated. When all hope was lost, Yukio Sakaguchi entered the ring. He isn’t with BOYZ anymore so he is joining YaroZ today! Sakaguchi chased off the Ikemen Army and rescued the women. The YaroZ asked Oikawa and Sakurako-san to hang out with them after the show but they turned them all down. Cherry wanted to hang out though, specifically with Keigo Nakamura. He didn’t want to because he thinks Cherry is as old as his mother. Cherry didn’t care and she dragged Nakamura out of the ring.

The Sensual Novel Death Match had Naoki Tanizaki and Hiroshi Yamato reading erotica to Ryuichi Sekine after every 2 count pin or submission. Danshoku Dieno was there to help determine if Sekine was aroused enough to end the match. Unfortunately no amount of erotic storytelling could excite Sekine. As more stories were told, wrestlers and ringside personnel were getting aroused, even Dieno! Sekine was exiting the ring when an Enya song played over the speakers. That did it! Everyone was too aroused to do anything so the match ended with Enya as the winner.

Sakurako-san was on the show to be the round girl for the Handicap Match. She began fully dressed and took off a piece of clothing after every round. Hideki Sekine destroyed Gota Ihashi & Keigo Nakamura but all of the referees and other wrestlers did what they could to keep the match going and complete the striptease. Yuya Okada eventually had enough and ended the match when Sekine squeezed the life out of Nakamura with a Bearhug. Yukinori Matsui attacked Okada and wrestled him over the decision. Sakurako-san calmed everyone down by stripping down to her bikini. That was when the Ikemen Army kidnapped her.

The Fundoshi match ended in a No Contest when Yuki Iino was so excited from hitting the Spear that he tried to remove his loincloth. Matsui blocked him and called for the bell.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING
202 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Special Poccha Libre Match ~American Drag Queen Vs Miss Jumbo~: Himeka Arita defeated Beauty Suzuki after a Crushed Body Slam (7:27).
2. Pocchaminator Manah Connor Chronicles: Pocchaminator (P-800) defeated Manah Connor (Yuna Manase) with the Canadian Backbreaker (?:??).
3. Pocchari Great Mothers Vs Mad Slender Army ~ Rainup War Without Jingi 2nd Season: Miss Mongol & Hamuko Hoshi defeated Moeka Haruhi & Banny Oikawa when Hoshi pinned Haruhi with a Diving Body Press (12:07).
4. Keiko Takeshita International Friendly Match – Keiko Beyond The Heart: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yumehito Imanari with the German Suplex (?:??).

Yumehito Imanari had an emotional main event with Konosuke Takeshita that explained his infatuation with Takeshita’s mother. Keiko Takeshita scolded her son during the match whenever he was about to do something too violent like using a chair. When Takeshita fought to give Imanari the German Suplex, a voice began to speak over everything. It was the voice of Imanari’s heart. Everybody was told that Imanari’s mother passed away when he was only 20 years old, just 3 days after his first student club wrestling match. She never got to see him wrestle. When Imanari sees Keiko watching her son in the ring he wonders if his own mother would have watched him the same way if she was still alive. That’s why he admires Keiko and also why he wanted to wrestle Takeshita today. So they could both wrestle their best for their moms to see. By now Imanari was fighting back with tears in his eyes but Takeshita was able to hit the German Suplex to win.

After the match Takeshita told Imanari that if he ever feels lonely, he has his permission to call and talk to Keiko. Imanari said has spent the last 13 years of his life searching for maternal love. He found it when he met Konosuke and Keiko. But enough about that. Today’s show was stressful for Imanari to put together. He’s not in the mood to be entertained or pampered right now. Yuna Manase came down to the ring and cheered him up by singing “Soul’s Refrain” from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Imanari joined in while the ring filled with the other wrestlers. Manase left the ring during the performance but came back out wearing a red plugsuit! Imanari asked everyone if they wanted to do a third Pocchari Joshi show. If they do then everyone in the audience should bring their moms with them!

Keiko was involved in the main event because she was appointed as the special ambassador for the match. She came out wearing her son’s amateur wrestling singlet he used back in the 3rd grade. She said it fits her even though she weighs 86kg. She then confessed that she would like Imanari to hold her 86kg body. She also wanted to know if Akito was in attendance.

Hamuko Hoshi and Moeka Haruhi both did sexy poses in front of Daisuke Kiso during the opening trade offs. When Miss Mongol joined in, her pose made Kiso faint. Hoshi bit Haruhi’s arm because she was hungry. Later Mongol threw Haruhi face first into Kiso’s waist in the corner. Banny Oikawa tried to turn things around but Mongol cut her off and Hoshi pinned her with the Diving Body Press.

The Pocchaminator traveled back in time from the year 2050 to pocchaminate every human being with a high BMI level. The only person to stop it it Manah Connor. She was injected with nanomachines before the match but her heightened abilities didn’t seem to have any effect on her enemy. She received instructions from Colonel Hirotsugu Suyama on what to do but none of them worked. She tried calling Yuki Kamifuku but couldn’t get an answer. The Pocchaminator (P-800) took control of the match and was about to do a Choke Slam when Manah received a message from an unlikely source. It was the Stardom owner Rossy Ogawa! He reminded Yuna Manase that she is a Stardom graduate and encouraged her to fight back. Manah yelled the Stardom motto “Believe Now, Shine Tomorrow, We Are Stardom!” as she fought back against The Pocchaminator. Unfortunately The Pocchaminator hit a Lariat and made Manah give up to the Canadian Backbreaker.

When the match was over The Pocchaminator praised Manah Connor for being a great warrior. He warned her that Tokyo will be under future attacks and her pocchari body is the greatest weapon to stop them. Manah went back to being Yuna Manase and she thanked those who helped her. She told The Pocchaminator they should fight together and they left. But unknown to them a video was shown on the screen. It is The Pocchaminator 2! The P-1000 is coming after them!

Beauty Suzuki tried to Body Slam Himeka Arita but wasn’t strong enough to go through with it. Arita landed on top of Suzuki and got the pin.

The show began with Imanari demonstrating the πMAX3D technology he developed. He wore a VR headset while a scene from Manase’s gravure video played. Imanari became… engrossed in the video until Manase got into the ring and gave him a Stunner.
