BOYZ “(BRAND NEW) BOYZ α -VALENTINE EDITION-”, 11/02/2020
Kitazawa Town Hall
250 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. DAMNATION Vs BOYZ!: Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo defeated Jun Masaoka & Kazuki Hirata when Endo pinned Hirata with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (8:58).
2. Keigo Nakamura BOYZ Assessment Match: Hiroshi Yamato defeated Keigo Nakamura with the Fisherman Suplex (6:51).
3. BOYZ-Like Exchange Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Shuichiro Tominaga & Shota when Takanashi pinned Shota with the Uwabami (13:07).

6. HomoClo Revival: Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Akito (w/ KUDO & Hiroshi Fukuda) defeated HARASHIMA, Keisuke Ishii & Mizuki Watase when Oishi pinned Watase with the Luminous Press (14:46).

Several members of Homoiro Clover Z came gathered together for a special reunion. There was Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi, Akito, KUDO, Hiroshi Fukuda and even Yoshihiko playing the role of Kota Ibushi all turning up. With the power of pop music, HomoClo won the main event with everyone getting involved. Fukuda knocked away HARASHIMA, KUDO gave Mizuki Watase a Buzzsaw Kick and Yoshihiko hit Keisuke Ishii with the Kamigoye. Oishi then pinned Watase with the Luminous Press.

Their victory celebration was interrupted by a familiar song. “ωe are the HERO!!” played as MAO & Shunma Katsumata walked out representing NωA! They came out calling themselves the only real idol unit in the history of DDT. Oishi was conflicted. Here he is with HomoClo but he is a part of NωA too. The two units had a tug of war over Oishi until he came up with an idea. Homoiro Clover Z and NωA will fight over who gets Oishi on the 26th March BOYZ show.

Keigo Nakamura’s audition for BOYZ began with him singing “Young Man” for his entrance. Hiroshi Yamato then showed him how it was really done by singing “BURN” and wrestling in a fancy suit.

Problems began to surface between Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Missed attacks and forced tags made it seem like they were going to break up. But they were able to solve their problem and reconcile.

Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Worldwide Match: Chris Brookes Vs Royce Chambers
2. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Shinya Aoki wanted to use his Right To Challenge Gauntlet to get a DDT Extreme Title match. He was told the Gauntlet is not meant for that championship but he still qualified for a title shot anyway. Also HARASHIMA likes to fight him.

A lot of eyes will be on Chris Brookes and Royce Chambers. Brookes for going through his year long stay in Japan and Chambers for suddenly becoming a potential hot prospect on the indie scene.

Maku Donaruto will be on the show.

This is the last Tokyo Joshi Pro show for the Akemi Daredasore name. The 30 day period for Hyper Misao to wrestle under that name ends a few days later. She should go back to normal on the show after this but who knows with her. Misao might end up finding another way to change her gimmick again. Shoko Nakajima helped bring Daredasore to life so it’s only fitting for her to say goodbye.

The Homoiro Clover Z reunion gets even bigger with former members KUDO & Hiroshi Fukuda (aka Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi) standing in the team’s corner for the main event.

Whatever contest Hiroshi Yamato and Kazuki Hirata were going to have has been cancelled. Instead Hirata will be teaming with Jun Masaoka to face the invading DAMNATION team of Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Yamato now has a match with Keigo Nakamura to see whether or not Nakamura is worthy of becoming a BOY. Akito thinks he should belong to YaroZ.

1. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes

Nagoya City East Sports Center

1. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 4th Match – Rocky Of Naniwa II Vs Human Torpedo II: Saki Akai Vs Miranda Gordy

The next challenge Saki Akai will face in the Okibariyasu series is Miranda Gordy, the daughter of Terry Gordy! Miranda began wrestling in the American indies last year and is touring Japan in February as part of Tokyo Championship Wrestling. She sent a video to the DDT office explaining that she and Akai share something in common. Akai’s dad was a great boxer and Gordy’s dad was a great wrestler. But Miranda thinks she is a better wrestler than Akai and will crush her in the ring to prove it. Akai understands it is important to be proud of her father’s blood but they will be fighting each other regardless of their second generation status. Akai has been nicknamed “The Rocky Of Naniwa II” because of her family connection but when she finishes the series, she wants to have earned a new nickname for herself.

DDT “SWEET DREAMS! 2020”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Soma Takao, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Masahiro Takanashi, Mizuki Watase & Keigo Nakamura
2. Gamo & L’Oréal Presents Hair Arrange Tag Match: Toru Owashi & Super Sasadango Machine Vs MAO & Hiroshi Yamato

4. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Time Difference Battle Royal: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Tetsuya Endo Vs Danshoku Dieno Vs Makoto Oishi Vs Yukio Naya Vs Antonio Honda Vs Shinya Aoki Vs Yasu Urano
5. Special Single Match To Have Naomichi Marufuji Remember Your Name: Naomichi Marufuji Vs Kazuki Hirata
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Chihiro Hashimoto & Yuki Iino
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Masato Tanaka

Even though he won the D-Ou Grand Prix and was undefeated throughout the tournament, Masato Tanaka will not consider himself the strongest wrestler in DDT until he beats HARASHIMA to win the KO-D Openweight Title. He realises that the circumstances around this weekend’s match is very different from the 30 minute draw they had back in December. HARASHIMA claims he fought to win that time but still had fun, perhaps too much of it. This time he wants to fight like the champion he is.

Yuki Iino is fired up to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles on his own. He doesn’t trust Chihiro Hashimoto and she doesn’t trust him. Hashimoto has since made comments calling Iino an idiot that has made him angry.

Naomichi Marufuji still does not remember ever meeting Kazuki Hirata or having drinks with him. Hirata handed over a pair of Hirata GO! glasses to jog his memory but Marufuji broke them instead.

Three Right To Challenge Gauntlets are up for grabs in the Battle Royal. The match will end when all three prizes are claimed. However they don’t seem to be the only Gauntlets around this time.

BASARA “BASARA 118 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE DAY~”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano
2. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano Vs Daichi Kazato Vs Masato Kamino
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Ryuichi Sekine Vs SAGAT
5. Isami Kodaka Vs Tetsuo Usui
6. IRON FIST TAG Match: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs FUMA & Yusuke Kubo

Over at BASARA the crew is putting on a same day doubleheader. On the afternoon show the IRON FIST TAG Titles are on the line in a rematch between new champions Speed Of Sounds against the former champs IRON PRIEST.

BASARA “BASARA 119 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE NIGHT~”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. 6-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: SAGAT, Tsutomu Oosugi & Masato Kamino Vs Daiki Shimomura, Yasu Urano & Akiyori Takizawa
2. Takumi Tsukamoto, Banana Senga & Tetsuo Usui Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Daichi Kazato
3. FUMA & Takato Nakano Vs Yusuke Kubo & Fuminori Abe
4. Isami Kodaka Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The evening show looks a bit random other than the main event. That match is between the two wrestlers who failed to win the Union MAX Title from Masahiro Takanashi. If the match set up is good enough for Kota Ibushi and Jay White then it’s good enough for Isami Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu.

DDT “VALENTINE ITABASHI SERIES 2020”, 01/02/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Match: Yuki Iino Vs Mizuki Watase
2. 3 Way Match Anytime Anywhere: Naomi Yoshimura Vs Kazusada Higuchi Vs Mad Paulie
3. 4 Way Match Anytime Anywhere: Yuki Ueno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Soma Takao Vs Akito
4. Beloved Hometown! Itabashi Specialty Special 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda Vs MAO & Makoto Oishi

Apparently there’s three more Gauntlets for a total of six?

We know MAO will be facing the KO-D Champion in February but DDT aren’t taking any chances for one of the preview matches. MAO will face both HARASHIMA and Tanaka in a 3 Way Tag no matter who the KO-D Champion is after this weekend. Tanaka is bringing in his old FMW buddy Tetsuhiro Kuroda to team with him.

Cody Hall and Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

DDT “IBARAKI DE IKAPPEYO KATSUPE 2020”, 02/02/2020

MMA fighter Hayato “Mach” Sakurai returns to DDT after making a few visits to the promotion just over a year ago. Last time he accompanied Tanomusaku Toba to coach him from ringside. This time he will join him inside the ring to wrestle a match.

5. GanJo Vs DDT Wrestling Classroom Full Battle – Secret Captain’s Fall 6-Woman Tag Team Elimination Match: Moehiko Harumisawa, HARUKAZE & Asuka Vs Cherry, Yuu & Banny Oikawa

The surprise opponent for Cherry is Asuka! The original plan was to reveal her on the day of the show but Ganbare☆Wrestling pushed ahead to announce her due to fans not wanting to wait that long.

Daisuke Kiso is making the main event a Secret Captain’s Fall Elimination match. The match will end when a team captain is eliminated. The twist is no one knows who the captains are until the elimination happens.

Kiso only found out recently that HARUKAZE does not own a judo jacket. She might have to borrow one from Gota Ihashi.

Moeka Haruhi had to be renamed Moehiko Harumisawa after a 3 Way Match gone wrong yesterday. More on that below.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “AIJO 2020”, 02/02/2020

Yesterday a match was held between Moeka Haruhi, Shuichiro Katsumura and Shuhei Washida where the loser had to change their name. A contested result ended up with all three wrestlers changing their name. As mentioned above Haruhi is now Harumisawa, Katsumura is now Katsuzaki Shunosuke and Washida is now Washi Sakurai. Together the trio are called THE HALFEE.

Sakazaki & Itoh In EVE, Homoiro Clover Z Reunion

January 15, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 18/01/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Yuki Aino Vs Mahiro Kiryu
2. Akemi Daredasore, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa Vs Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma & Haruna Neko
3. Suzume Vs Sena Shiori
4. Mirai Maiumi Vs Miu Watanabe
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Maki Itoh Vs Yuna Manase & Raku
6. Miyu Yamashita, Rika Tatsumi & Raku Vs Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Pom Harajuku

This past weekend Yuka Sakazaki and Maki Itoh both wrestled in England for “WRESTLE QUEENDOM 3” hosted by Pro-Wrestling: EVE. Sakazaki fought to a 15 minute draw against Lana Austin. After the match Sakazaki told Austin they can have a rematch for the Princess Of Princess Title if Austin ever comes to Japan. In the other match, Itoh defeated “Session Moth” Martina. She was amazed at how Martina controlled the audience support at first but Itoh got them on her side because she is the cutest in the world. Itoh also thinks it was 100 times more exciting to sing in England than it is to sing in Japan.

Anyway long story short, Sakazaki & Itoh are teaming together for their first match back in Japan since the EVE show.

Itoh has invited Bull Nakano to attend the big Tokyo Joshi Pro show at Tokyo Dome City Hall this November. The two met at a talk event yesterday. Nakano’s advice for Itoh was no matter how good she gets, she needs to develop rivalries with other wrestlers from her era. That is what attracts fans and gets them to keep watching.

BASARA “BASARA 117 ~REBORN~”, 22/01/2020
Shinjuku FACE

0. Exhibition Match: Captain Grace & Kamui Vs Takano Nakato & Masato Kamino
1. Daichi Kazato Vs Tetsuo Usui

4. Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Minoru Fujita Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Takato Nakano
5. Fuminori Abe & Takuya Nomura Vs Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa
6. IRON FIST TAG Titles: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo (c) Vs Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga
7. Union MAX Title: Masahiro Takanashi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Unfortunately I’m still struggling to keep up with BASARA because they are still only posting the bare minimum of info on their new website. I’ll keep posting results for now. I’ll have to find a way to dig deeper into this.

Anyway, Masahiro Takanashi is not taking it easy as the Union MAX Champion. He defeated Isami Kodaka in his first defence. Now next on the plate for him is another former MAX champion, Ryota Nakatsu. He also pinned Kodaka recently to claim the title shot.

Tsutomu Oosugi pinning FUMA at the last show means Speed Of Sounds get an IRON FIST TAG Titles match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 25/01/2020

5. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Rika Tatsumi
Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino

GPW is now Ganpocha-gun. Doesn’t really make a difference.

BOYZ “(BRAND NEW) BOYZ α -VALENTINE EDITION-”, 11/02/2020
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. BOYZ Ace Showdown: MAO Vs Yuki Ueno
2. Fairy BOYZ: Yasu Urano & Antonio Honda Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura
3. BOYZ-Like Exchange Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Shuichiro Tominaga & Shota
4. HomoClo Revival: Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Akito Vs HARASHIMA, Keisuke Ishii & Mizuki Watase

Homoiro Clover Z are back! This was an idol unit put together by Danshoku Dieno between 2011 and 2012. There were a few reunions here and there afterward and it was never their decision to break up at the time. They had to because the entire roster was reset for new units to take their place.

Since there currently is not much interaction between the different brands on the main DDT shows, Akito is using the BOYZ brand to make matches involving Ganbare☆Wrestling wrestlers. Shota has been looking forward to wrestle against Konosuke Takeshita ever since he witnessed Takaeshita’s debut match back in 2012.

Akito thinks the YaroZ have their place on BOYZ shows too. They have their female fans believe it or not. Akito knows they can be as graceful as fairies if given the opportunity to.

Kazuki Hirata and Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

The card announcement was interrupted by a message from DAMNATION. They will be producing their own show in Shinjuku FACE on 7th April.

The next BOYZ show after this will be on 26th April at Itabashi Green Hall. However the next YaroZ show is also scheduled for the venue on the same day at the same time! An agreement was made for the shows to be held on separate floors. BOYZ gets the bigger room on the 2nd floor. YaroZ gets the smaller room on the 1st floor. They will have to use a low floor ring and can only fill in 124 people in the audience but the YaroZ people think the size is just right for them.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Yumehito Imanari

Yumehito Imanari won a Battle Royal to get this title shot. He is the most motivated he’s ever been as a pro wrestler. So even though he knows he will take a beating from Keisuke Ishii, he still likes his odds of winning.
