2. Special Pinch Hitter Match: Saki defeated Hikaru Shimizu with the Kawaii Buster (9:21).
3. Mysterious Moment! India And Panda Come Together! Special Tag Match!: Yukihiro Abe & Chikara defeated Brian Aki & J-Soul Pandita III IV when Abe pinned Pandita with the Kamigoye (Permission Acquired) (9:23).
4. Ganbare, Ihashi! Continue Showing It! The “U” Of Ihashi: Nobuhiro Tsurumaki defeated Gota Ihashi with a Cross Heel Hold (9:34).
5. Student Pro Wrestler Returns: MEN’S Teioh & Onryo defeated Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga when Teioh pinned Tominaga with the Tokai Special (17:36).
6. Ganpuro Family Vs Katsumura-gun 6-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Katsumi Oribe defeated Shuichiro Katsumura, Takeshi Okada & Black Ribera (19:38).
6a. Katsumi Oribe eliminated Black Ribera by Ring Out (10:23).
6b. Shuichiro Katsumura eliminated Katsumi Oribe with the Ninja Choke (12:23).
6c. Ken Ohka and Shuichiro Katsumura eliminated each other by Double Ring Out (17:38).
6d. Yumehito Imanari eliminated Takeshi Okada with the Chubby Knee (19:38).

Yumehito Imanari was the hero of the day for Ganbare☆Wrestling as they beat Katsumura-gun in an Elimination Match. The tricky Black Ribera was eliminated first when Katsumi Oribe blocked his Hurricanrana to the apron and lifted him out of the ring. Shuichiro Katsumura evened the score by choking out Oribe with the Ninja Choke. Katsumura and Ken Ohka eliminated each other when they fought on the apron and Imanari knocked both of them to the floor. That left Imanari alone against Takeshi Okada. Katsumura-gun tried to interfere but Imanari hit the Chubby Knee kick and got the winning pinfall. Okada demanded to continue and Imanari challenged him to a match on 28th April.

The Tokai Special is MEN’S Teioh and Onryo doing T-Pose Power Bombs.

Nobuhiro Tsurumaki encouraged Gota Ihashi to continue wrestling. He’s been doing this for twenty years and no bad matches have ever stopped him.

J-Soul Pandita III IV wore a Tiger Jeet Singh style turban to mark the occasion of him teaming with Brian Aki. A landmark event in the relationship between India and wherever on earth Pandita is from. Pandita ruined the moment by attacking his opponents with an umbrella but Yukihiro Abe & Chikara stopped him with a Sling Blade, Sabre Chops and the Kamigoye.

Saki and Hikaru Shimizu were brought in as “pinch hitters” for the women’s match because HARUKAZE was away on a family vacation.

The rookie Shuhei Washida was put through the ringer by Tomomitsu Matsunaga. When they were fighting outside the ring Matsunaga threw Washida’s knee into a wall the targeted it for the rest of the match. Matsunaga then finished off a tired Washida with a Half Crab.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BODY FEELS EXIT 2018” Results

February 11, 2018

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BODY FEELS EXIT 2018”, 11/02/2018
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
134 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shuhei Washida Debut 2nd Round: Katsumi Oribe defeated Shuhei Washida with the Katsumiga (6:51).
2. Recurrence Of Ihashi! Show Your Old Ally, Ganbare Soul: Yukihiro Abe defeated Gota Ihashi with the Kamigoe (7:05).
3. Ganpuro Vs India ~Oji, Dancing Maharaja!~: Brian Aki & Samara defeated Shota & HARUKAZE when Samara pinned HARUKAZE with the Snake Charmer (12:58).
4. Student Pro Wrestler Begins! ~Defeat Pioneer!~: MEN’S Teioh defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Spinning Toe Hold (10:43).
5. Overall War! Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Katsumura-gun: Shuichiro Katsumura & Black Ribera defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ribera pinned Imanari with the OSCURO (19:58).

The addition of Black Ribera to Katsumura-gun was too much for Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to handle. The small high flyer countered a Super Power Bomb into a Hurricanrana. Shuichiro Katsumura choked out Ohka with the Ninja Choke then joined Ribera in kicking lumps out of Imanari. There was a glimpse of hope for Imanari when he hit a Double Lariat but his momentum was killed by a Fisherman Buster by Katsumura. Ribera then finished him off with the OSCURO Frog Splash. Katsumura told the Ganpuro team that no matter how many times they fight, he will never lose to them. Ribera decided that now was the time for him to introduce himself to everyone although he kept his nationality a secret. He said the Ganpuro fans are pretty good because they are lively even when they have to watch wrestlers like Ohka, Imanari and Shuhei Washida. Tension rose between the two sides which caused Katsumura-gun to leave. Washida begged Ohka to let him fight them. Ohka was touched to see the trainee has his back so he came up with a match. On 11th March in Osaka Ohka, Imanari & Washida will take on Katsumura-gun! Ohka said it has been five years since Ganbare☆Wrestling was created. Since then he has gained two families, his real one and his Ganpuro one. He doesn’t know if they can beat Katsumura-gun but they will fight them with all that they have.

Shinichiro Tominaga used some creative ideas to try and beat the legendary MEN’S Teioh. He used the referee twice to his advantage. The first time was to escape from the Spinning Toe Hold and the second time was Tominaga leap frogging over the ref to Dropkick an unsuspecting Teioh. Tominaga later countered the Miracle Ecstasy into a Hurricanrana but only got a nearfall out of it. Teioh succeeded hitting his move the second time and he made Tominaga submit to the Spinning Toe Hold. Tominaga called Teioh a god of Student Pro Wrestling but Teioh stopped him. Teioh said he isn’t a god although he did dye his hair red today to resemble a Super Saiyan God. He told Tominaga that pro wrestling isn’t just limited to 1 Vs 1. Next time they should bring together their Student Wrestling friends for another match. His university club was No. 1 but he’s welcome to take on any challengers to that claim. Tell him the place and he will be there along with Onryo! Teioh left to UWF chants but this UWF is referring to his Kanto Student Pro Wrestling club.

Shota was blinded and mistook HARUKAZE for one of his opponents. He gave her a Brainbuster and Samara followed up with a Blackout style Leg Drop called the Snake Charmer on HARUKAZE to get the pin. Samara & Brian Aki then taunted their opponents and told them to “Suck it!”

Gota Ihashi lost when he missed the Moonsault. Yukihiro Abe then used the Kamigoe to pin him. Ihashi bowed to the audience after the match.

Shuhei Washida refused to shake hands with Katsumi Oribe after their match.

At the end of the show Ken Ohka told the audience his e-mail address if they ever need consulting from him. Doesn’t matter what hardships they have, from debt to divorce he wants to give everyone fatherly advice. He will be everyone’s Ganbare☆Dad!

Only a few days remain for 2017 but the Japanese wrestling scene still has a lot to offer, even during the final countdown.

BASARA runs Korakuen Hall for the latest Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament, a concept Isami Kodaka must have came up with after binging on Dragon Ball.

There will be no ring ropes attached for all the matches in Rounds 1 & 2. Pins, submissions and ring outs are the valid ways to win. The ropes come back on for the semi finals and final. The Ring Out rule is still active for that. The final will be a normal match but with no countouts.

DAMNATION made Nobuhiro Shimatani reveal the full card backstage at last week’s Ganbare☆Wrestling show. He couldn’t believe half the matches that were on the list.

Daisuke Sasaki wanted to defend the DDT Extreme Title in some sort of Explosion Death Match. He wants this because the challenger Yuko Miyamoto is the current (pun not intended) Blast King Champion. The demand was declined by Danshoku Dino because the use of fire and explosions in wrestling matches are banned in Korakuen Hall. Sasaki threatened to cancel the entire show over this but he and Dino agreed to come up with another stipulation.

An entire team of Mad Paulies will challenge for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles.

A DAMNATION Festival event will be held before the show starts. The injured DNA wrestler Suguru Miyatake is only announced guest for the event so far.

As part of the new year celebrations, a calligrapher named Nachu will paint different messages on the backs of the wrestlers entering the New Year’s Rumble.

One of the longest running storielines happening in BASARA this year is the relationship between the Speed Of Sounds tag team. When Hercules Senga went out of action with an injury, his partner Tsutomu Oosugi decided to team up with Best Stretchman V3. When Senga came back he thought Oosugi was being forced to team with Stretchman against his will and did whatever he could to beat the team and split them up. It’s now gotten so awkward that the wrestling lawyer Gouma Ryu is getting involved and the situation has to go to court!

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017” Results

November 3, 2017

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
206 Fans – No Vacancy

1. 3rd Generation Vs 3rd Generation Vs 2nd Generation! ~I Am The Grandson Panda! I Do Not Need Two Pandas In The Pro Wrestling World~: Yumehito Imanari defeated Chikara and J-Soul Pandita III IV when Imanari pinned Pandita with a Death Penalty (6:47).

4. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the Fire Spear (12:11).
5. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Shota with the Just Facelock (16:36).
6. Bonus Track ~72 Hours Honey TV Special Tag Match~ Youtuber Kusanagi Pro Wrestling Debut Match: Danshoku Dino & Youtuber Kusanagi defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Kusanagi pinned Imanari after the Spike Danshoku Driver (3:38).

The end of the show was interrupted by Danshoku Dino and another person. He came here not out of competition between DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling but to offer them some attention instead. The person with Dino was Kusanagi, a Youtuber who also hosts a show on AbemaTV called 72 Hour Television. He wants to make a worldwide trending video so Dino suggested him to enter a pro wrestling match which is why they are here today. An impromptu match between Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Dino & Kusanagi took place there and then. Kusanagi and his friends recorded the match while he wrestled and he even got the winning pinfall on Imanari after a Spike Danshoku Driver.

The scheduled main event was Shota Vs Shinichiro Tominaga which Tominaga won. He told Shota the reason he won today was because it is Autumn. Tominaga always fights his best during the Autumn. But he wants to fight Shota again in Spring, Summer and Winter too so they can fight during every season. Tominaga then brought up the time Daisuke Sasaki called him an amateur. Tominaga wants Sasaki to answer what is the line that separates an amateur and a professional. He wants Sasaki to go visit the XVideos website and look up the most searched word on that site. It is “Amateur”. If Tominaga is an amateur then he will take the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title from Sasaki and become the strongest amateur! Tominaga will get his title match on 26th November.

The assassin sent by Sasaki to fight Ohka was revealed to be Nobuhiro Shimatani! Even though Sasaki explicitly said in advance that his assassin is not a member of DAMNATION, Shimatani acted like he was one by wearing the DAMNATION shirt with a leather jacket over it. He said Ohka has lost all his money and today he will lose his wrestling life! He attacked Ohka and immediately went for a Cross Facelock. Ohka defended himself then brawled with Shimatani until he finished him off with the Fire Spear. He sent a message to Sasaki afterwards. Shimatani is not the sort of godly assassin that was promised but still the assassin was defeated. That means Ohka deserves another shot at taking the World Jr. Title from him. Ohka also told Shimatani he is doing fine without DAMNATION and he doesn’t need their vindication to be strong. Shimatani shook Ohka’s hand and left the ring.

A wrestler from India named Brian Aki approached the ring during the opening announcements. He introduced himself to Ohka, told him that Ganpuro is very famous in his country and he travelled all the way to Japan so he can wrestle here. Ohka was amazed by this discovery and he added Aki into the Ganbare Tryout match. In the tryout match Ganbare The Shooter forgot to wear his mask so Ganbare The Great covered his face until one was found. Ganbare The Akihabara carried a Comiket paper bag to the ring containing a Black Spider VII mask he wore later on. Ganbare The Robin wrestled in a Minoru Fujita shirt over his usual gear. Robin got the win the a Diving Cross Body onto the other team but it took some time for everybody to stand in the right position. He wouldn’t risk the move until they were close enough for him to do it successfully. When the match was over Ganbare The Great announced the tryout results. Brain Aki failed because he cannot communicate well with the other wrestlers. Akihabara failed because he is a thief. Robin failed for no reason. So the entire tryout was a failure! Robin complained that should have passed because he won the match. He promised to return on his own terms next time.

Sumire Natsu got heckled by both the audience and the wrestlers for wearing heavy make-up on her face for the match. She got the last laugh by pinning HARUKAZE with her feet on the ropes. HARUKAZE demanded a singles match with Natsu and it will take place on 26th November.

There were times in the opening match when J-Soul Pandita III IV wandered away from the ring leaving Chikara and Imanari to fight each other. It eventually wandered back in. Chikara gave it the Saber Chop but Imanari kicked him away and gave Pandita the Death Penalty to steal the win.
