When FUMA wins the Heaven Summit he will spend his prize money on a trip to Germany to go see Wacken Open Air, the biggest heavy metal festival in the world!
In a back and forth contest, Urano had counters for many of Fuminori Abe’s moves. He turned the Manjigatame into an Anklelock then used the Modern Times backslide to set up a Figure 4 Leg Lock. Abe at this point at no energy left to fight back and tapped out.
Banana Senga gave Best Stretchman V3 a Low Blow to steal the win for his team. Banana Senga declared himself the winner of the final battle between him and Best Stretchman. He then promoted the next final battle between them to be held in Shin-Kiba 1st RING.

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.

*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.
