*Cavalry fails in V2. The Aldini Brothers become the 23rd NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champions!

The Aldini Brothers have reclaimed the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles! The champions Cavalry almost won when Ryota Nakatsu hit a Sliding Kick to Takumi Tsukamoto. However Isami Kodaka stopped the pin with the Diving Double Knee Drop. Tsukamoto slipped out of the V Slider and gave Nakatsu the Tiger Suplex for the pin. Kodaka said described winning the belts from Cavalry made the victory even more meaningful. Tsukamoto said that together he and Kodaka will raise the prestige of the titles and also of BASARA.

Court was in session for the latest of Gouma Ryu’s Pro Wrestling Trials. Konaka = Pale One of all people took the case seriously. Gone was his ghostly facepaint and replacing them were a pair of glasses an a tie. He was the prosecutor accusing Mammoth Handa of faking an injury to avoid wrestling at a show last August. Ryu argued that Handa is passionate about pro wrestling but Kodaka told him he’s never seen Honda at practice. Tomoya Hasegawa was called to the ring as a witness. Kodaka noticed that he was wearing women’s underwear beneath his regular clothing. Hasegawa explained he borrowed his sister’s underwear because his own went missing. He then said Handa missed the show in August because of a traffic accident. But as he talked about this he accidentally revealed that he was driving to a Stardom show that day instead of the other show. Everyone attacked Hasegawa and piled on top of him for the pin. Hasegawa was then declared guilty.

*V1 for Cavalry.

Cavalry successfully fended off the outsider team of Ikuto Hidaka & Sean Guinness to keep the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles around their waists. Guinness tried to pin Ryuichi Sekine with a Hurricanrana but it was countered into the Let’s Combine, forcing Guinness to tap out. Ikuto Hidaka accepted defeat on this day but warned Sekine that the next time he is in BASARA he will leave as the winner. He reminded everyone that he and Dick Togo were the first NWA Light Tag Champions. So they will team up again to win back the titles! The Brothers Aldini then came down to the ring. They are the current No. 1 Contenders after beating Hiroshi du Soleil earlier in the show. Both they and the champions are now motivated even more knowing that the winners of their match next week have Hidaka and Togo waiting for them.

That wasn’t the end of it though. FUMA interrupted the closing speeches yelling “HELL! HELL! HELL AND HELL!” He confronted Sekine for their upcoming Union MAX Title match on 20th February. Sekine said he hadn’t forgotten about it. FUMA insulted Sekine’s shaved head, saying it is nothing like Anthrax member Scott Ian’s sophisticated skinned head. Sekine told FUMA that by the end of the month he will become a double champion, the King of Two Crowns!

5. Union MAX Title Battlefield?: Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT when Tsukamoto pinned SAGAT with the Tiger Suplex (18:56).

Since Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was wrestling in Taiwan for DDT, he sent Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi to take his place on the BASARA show happening on the same day. Takumi Tsukamoto called out to Ryuichi after the match and he talked about how they used to team together. He now wasn’t looking at Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, he was looking at Ryuichi Kawakami. Tsukamoto challenged Kawakami to a match at BASARA’s Christmas Day show at Korakuen Hall. Tsukamoto wants to show how strong he has become ever since he joined BASARA.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi sent a message from Taiwan to be read at this show. It was an announcement that SAGAT will take on Jun Akiyama on Christmas Day! SAGAT was stunned at the news but found the courage to say he will beat Akiyama. Then he immediately took that back.

Cavalry challenged Abdullah Kobayashi, Takayuki Ueki & Masaya Takahashi to a Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles match on Christmas Day. But there’s an extra surprise. Koji Kanemoto will be on Cavalry’s team!

FUMA and Masamune were provoking each other into a fight after Match #3.

Koji Kanemoto got into the spirit of things by joining in with Cavalry’s “horse riding” entrance. He was even introduced as the Supreme Commander of Cavalry. When the main event was over Ryuichi Sekine told Kanemoto that BASARA will return to Osaka on 8th January next year and asked that he make that date a priority. Kanemoto replied that today was just a practice for the Januray show.

The battle of IRON PRIEST finished with no bad blood between anyone. The four of them all gave each other heavy metal hand signs instead of handshakes.

An Avalanche Brainbuster from a ladder led to both Isami Kodaka and GUNSO failing to get back to their feet before the ten count, resulting in a Double KO Draw. Kodaka said it was impossible for them to go into overtime. He and GUNSO were then able to bond over Shonen Jump talk.

Isami Kodaka wanted to give Ikuto Hidaka & Sean Guinness a chance to soak in the applause after a really fun match. The hosts of the tournament IRON PRIEST won their match against the Sportiva Combination. FUMA thinks he and Yusuke Kubo will effortlessly win the tournament. Hiroshi du Soleil went through over Daichi Kazato & Tomoya Kawamura. The result continues SAGAT’s recovery from his current slump.

4. Trans-Am ★ Trans-Am: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated Atsushi Maruyama & Hi69 when Hiroshi pinned Maruyama with the Perfect Plex (16:16).
5. Cavalry Vs IRON PRIEST The Entire Conflict 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: FUMA, Madoka, Yusuke Kubo & Jaki Numazawa defeated Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu, Koji Iwamoto & Masashi Takeda (27:08).
5a. Madoka eliminated Koji Iwamoto by Ring Out (12:13).
5b. Masashi Takeda eliminated Jaki Numazawa by Ring Out (15:45).
5c. Masashi Takeda and Yusuke Kubo were both eliminated by Ring Out (18:11).
5d. Ryuichi Sekine eliminated Madoka by Ring Out (21:40).
5e. FUMA eliminated Ryuichi Sekine by Ring Out (24:40).
5f. FUMA eliminated Ryota Nakatsu with the Heavy Metal Anthem (27:08).

IRON PRIEST stole Cavalry’s stick horses at the last BASARA show and brought them out before the main event to taunt their opponents. However Cavalry got one up on them with a surprise ambush to start the elimination match. IRON PRIEST scored the first elimination when Madoka pulled Koji Iwamoto over the ropes and knocking him off the apron. Jaki Numazawa tried to get rid of Masashi Takeda next but a reversal of fortunes led to Numazawa getting knocked out of the ring. Takeda then eliminated both Yusuke Kubo and himself with a Spear on the apron. Cavalry took the lead when FUMA accidentally hit Madoka with a High Kick, leading to his elimination. But a mistaken clash of partners happened to Cavalry too afterwards. Ryota Nakatsu hit Ryuichi Sekine and FUMA capitalized. That left FUMA and Sekine as the final two and FUMA got the only pinfall of the match to win it for IRON PRIEST. FUMA said IRON PRIEST has been the best unit in BASARA’s eight months of existence. To prove this he wants to hold a tag team tournament called the Iron Fist Tag League. However he said this while still wearing his mask so most of the audience just heard muffled yelling. FUMA also wants “Iron Fist” by Motorhead to be the league’s official theme song. Isami Kodaka suggested it should be a playoff instead of a league because they have no time to do another round robin tournament this year.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi brought in a new tag partner from America, Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. However Atsushi Maruyama was convinced it was really Big Japan wrestler Ryuichi Kawakami pretending to be American. Ryuichi denied the accusation and got the fans to chant “Let’s go Trans-Am!” as he wrestled. Hi69 stopped Hiroshi from doing the Perfect Plex by hitting him with a chair. He and Maruyama then put their opponents in Sleeper Holds until “USA” chants woke them up. Team Trans-Am turned the tables and Hiroshi finally hit the Perfect Plex on Maruyama for the win.

The alliance between Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT is getting a little strained. Tsukamoto beat him in a Hardcore Match but offered to shake hands afterwards. SAGAT ignored it and headed directly to the exit.

Tomoya Kawamura had his first match in BASARA a day after his final match in DNA. The Rainbow Kawamura gimmick is now gone, Kawamura has reverted back to his previous self from before the injury. However he still put disinfectant on his hands before the match. Kawamura came close to winning with a Michinoku Driver II and Swanton Bomb but Kodaka fired back with the Zeyyari for the victory. Kodaka said his opponent was unexpectedly strong after watching video of his match from yesterday. He then welcomed Kawamura to BASARA.

The brackets for the 2nd Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai were revealed at the beginning of the show. The tournament takes place at Kodaka’s self-produced show on 28th September. The four first round matches are Shiori Asahi Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino, FUMA Vs Kengo Mashimo, Yasu Urano Vs Daisuke Sekimoto and Isami Kodaka Vs Brahman Kei (w/ Brahman Shu). Manami Toyota and a mystery wrestler were given byes into the second round.
