September 12, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “HARLEY DAVIDSON & MARLBORO MAN 2021”, 12/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
104 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match I: Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Takahiro Katori with the Crossface Lock (10:15).
2. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match II: Cherry defeated YuuRI with the Cherryton Bomb (9:31).
3. Ganpro Special Mixed 6-Person Tag Match: Shinichiro Tominaga, Makoto & HARUKAZE defeated Shota, Moeka Haruhi & Miyako Matsumoto when Tominaga pinned Shota with a Crushed Oklahoma Roll (10:58).
4. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Shu Sakurai by Referee Stoppage with the Ninja Choke (15:38).
5. Ken Ohka Pre-Debut 20th Anniversary Special Tag Match Part 2: Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ishii pinned Imanari with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (13:52).
6. Ganpro Four Big Singles Match ~ 26 Year Revenge For The Master: Shinjiro Otani defeated Kouki Iwasaki with a Cobra Hold (20:39).

Shinjiro Otani won the main event but may have come out of it with an injury to his left arm. He ignored the pain to continue fighting Kouki Iwasaki, eventually making him submit to the Cobra Hold. Otani said he is glad to have met Iwasaki in the ring. He also thinks that he himself now belongs in Ganbare☆Pro and wants the promotion to continue inspiring him.

An eager Ken Ohka wanted to deal with both Keisuke Ishii & Shigehiro Irie at the same time. Yumehito Imanari didn’t want to feel left out of the anniversary celebration so he stood with Ohka ready to fight. Late in the match Ohka hit Irie with the Fire Spear and left it all to Imanari. Unfortunately Ishii got the upper hand and pinned Imanari with the Tiger Suplex. At the end of the show, Ohka gave a speech saying he believes Ganpro can become just as good as NOAH, DDT, New Japan, WWE and AEW! Ganpro’s Korakuen Hall show on 25th September will be the next stepping stone towards that goal.

For his final singles match Shu Sakurai brought out the big gun. He used the Splash Mountain on Shuichiro Katsumura but was too close to the ropes for the pin to count. Katsumura took advantage of the mistake by trapping Sakurai in a Cross Armbreaker. He then transitioned to the Ninja Choke and held on until Daisuke Kiso stopped the match in his favour. Katsumura was honest after the match and said he was going to win easily. But he was lenient to Sakurai to make the match a bit more enjoyable for everyone. Next time in Korakuen all of THE HALFEE will be together for Sakurai’s send off match. Sakurai reminded everyone this isn’t a retirement match.

Shinichiro Tominaga got one over on Shota by pinning him to win the trios match. Shota reminded him that Miyako Matsumoto is not his tag partner so things will be different at the IJ Tag Team Titles match.

The newcomer YuuRI was put to the test by Cherry. YuuRI focused on using a Sleeper Hold but Cherry figured her game plan out and targeted her opponent’s legs. From there Cherry kept up the pressure and won with the Cherryton Bomb.

Takahiro Katori taunted Nobuhiro Shimatani during their match. He asked if his attacks were weakened because DAMNATION is disbanding? The insults fired up Shimatani into making a comeback and winning the match.

Yuki Arai is back after a month of Covid related setbacks.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

This is the end for DAMNATION. They are forced to split up after losing the final of the DRAMATIC SURVIVOR tournament. What their final match will be and who will be involved is currently a mystery.

Jun Akiyama recently made the shocking confession of wanting to team with Yoshihiko! He admitted he would rather do this than challenge for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles.

The Pheromones have been teasing the addition of a third member to their team. Whoever it is will be showing up at Korakuen Hall!

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Yoshiaki Yatsu, Akito, Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura (c) Vs Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani
2. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Minoru Fujita

Well Akiyama is challenging for the 8-Man Tag Titles anyway. He would rather the other four members of Junretsu fight for it but Makoto Oishi is injured long term so Akiyama has to be there. Maybe a first time in-ring meeting with Yoshiaki Yatsu will motivate him. The Olympics in Japan is now completely finished but can the champions keep their flame burning?

1. Special Singles Match To Commemorate Yukinori Matsui’s 25th Anniversary Of His Debut Two Years Later: Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Kikutaro
2. Special Tag Match ~ South Osaka Great War! Izumi Vs Kishiwada: Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada Vs Magnitude Kishiwada & Inaba no Buffalo.

Welcome to the alternate reality where Osaka Pro Wrestling still exists and has Jun Akiyama and Yusuke Okada both under contract. They’re going to have a local battle against Magnitude Kishiwada & Inaba no Buffalo. Kishiwada in particular is rather proud of being “Osaka’s Strongest Wrestler”. Time to put that to the test.

4. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE Vs Yuu Yamagata & Makoto

A little extra drama added to the main event is the friendship between HARUKAZE and Makoto. They get along outside the ring so could that somehow effect HARUKAZE teaming with Yuna Manase? The last time Yuu Yamagata was here she told HARUKAZE that Manase is holding back her progress.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

A press conference was held today covering some of the important “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” matches. Konosuke Takeshita admitted that losing twice to Jun Akiyama is what helped make him come into this match as a much better wrestler. He wants to win the KO-D Openweight Title and say with pride that “DDT has Takeshita.” Akiyama said that although his opponent is bigger and stronger, he’s going to show him what happens when the feelings in your heart and mind prevail. Akiyama won the previous two matches by submission but will take winning the third match by pinfall if he has to.

Daisuke Sasaki was able to appear on Zoom (goofy background and all) because he is finishing up his quarantine period. His physical absence from the press conference annoyed Yuki Ueno even more because Sasaki still has the stolen DDT Universal Title.

Sanshiro Takagi explained that when students from the DDT Teenage Project turn 20 years old they will become full time members of DDT. Their school education is given priority so will not be wrestling on every show. El Unicorn said he’s been recently inspired by Momiji Nishiya, the 13 year old skateboarder who won gold at the Olympics. Ilusion said he wants to become a big name worldwide. Both of them are just as focused on fighting the big names in their match as they are fighting each other.

Yesterday Atsushi Onita gathered his team together at a parking lot in Chiba to demonstrate the explosions that will be happen for their match. A watermelon was meant to be used as the target. Kuro-chan and his group interrupted the scene and attacked Onita’s team. Super Sasadango Machine smashed the watermelon over Sanshiro Takagi’s head while Akito & Maki Itoh were both taken care of. Kuro-chan & Hikari Noa then grabbed an explosive barbed wire bat and blasted Onita with it. Kuro-chan added insult to injury by pinning Onita while Sasadango counted to three. Kuro-chan promised to retire Onita and take over the rights to explosion death matches!

I will be writing a preview for the show next week.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota

There’s more to Ganbare☆Joshi than just the Manase & HARUKAZE drama. Cherry allegedly won a match against Shota in impressive fashion on the last show but no evidence of it happening exists. Whatever happened between them resulted in them now teaming together. Miss Mongol usually has Shota’s number when they fight each other and Yumehito Imanari isn’t going to be distracted by any Pocchari Joshi shenanigans.

GANBARE☆PRO “HARLEY DAVIDSON & MARLBORO MAN 2021”, 12/09/2021

Another 20th anniversary match for Ken Ohka. Ah, I can’t blame him.

Shinjiro Otani, Nobuhiro Shimatani and Takahiro Katori will be on the show.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~UTAGOE YO OKORE 2021~”, 20/07/2021
Saitama Wrestle Butokan
48 Fans

1. Special Single Match: Cherry Vs Shota got lost in the Time Space (0:00).
2. Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament Ranking Battle & LariPro Outpost Battle: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE Vs Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase ended in a No Contest when Shota interfered (8:49).
3. Ganjo Special Single Match: Yuna Manase defeated HARUKAZE with the Suzuki Dynamic (12:39).

Yuna Manase and HARUKAZE used their match as a way to strengthen their bond together. They promised to use this bond to beat Yuu Yamagata the next time she returns to Ganbare☆Joshi. Manase says if she doesn’t give up then she can make her dream come true. But beating Yamagata isn’t her dream, it is her goal! HARUKAZE said she was nervous to wrestle her first singles match against Manase today because she prepared for a 3 Way with Moeka Haruhi also involved. She is disappointed with the result but still thinks it was a great time. She hopes Haruhi was watching the match from home. Manase had to tell her the show wasn’t airing live anywhere.

The LariPro match went off the rails when Shota broke in and gave everybody Stunners.

Supposed time travel shenanigans screwed up the opening match. Apparently Cherry was able to beat Shota with the Spring Night Love and she celebrated after the fact. But Shota and Daisuke Kiso both stood there in the ring telling her nothing happened and the match hadn’t started yet. Cherry broke down in despair and the show had to move to the next match.

GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021” Results

June 27, 2021

GANBARE☆PRO “ERASER HEAD 2021”, 27/06/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
110 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Semi Final: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga when Ishii pinned Tominaga with a Rolling Cradle (7:31).

3. Jacket Match: Ken Ohka defeated Cherry by Disqualification when Cherry hung Ohka with a belt (7:56).
4. Hardcore 4 Way Match: Miss Mongol defeated Shota, Miyako Matsumoto and Itsuki Aoki when Mongol pinned Matsumoto with a Lariat (0:34).
4a. Rematch: Miss Mongol defeated Shota, Miyako Matsumoto and Itsuki Aoki when Mongol pinned Shota with a Lariat (15:56).
5. Special Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shinjiro Otani & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Iwasaki submitted Shimatani with the Texas Clover Hold (23:00).
6. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE when Haruhi pinned HARUKAZE with the Diving Foot Stomp (18:25).

After all the rumours going around backstage, the reward for winning the Mixed Tag Tournament is not a new championship or prize money. Instead, Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi will get a match on 11th July against an “super super special” tag team that will be revealed tomorrow. Katsumura said he wants THE HALFEE to wait for Shu Sakurai’s return from injury so all three of them can fight for a championship together again. He also said only 13% of fans thought they were going to win the tournament in a poll so the other 83% should buy their T-shirt as an apology. Haruhi said she is still proud to create history as the first Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament winner. She wants to make more history and be seen on equal footing to the men.

As a result of their defeat, Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE will no longer team together. They did this before when they lost the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles with Kouki Iwasaki. HARUKAZE doesn’t want to break up the team because she finally got a tag partner. Ishii told her that today’s regrets will make her stronger and they will meet again some day.

Shinjiro Otani is quickly becoming a wanted man in Ganpro. He has both Shigehiro Irie and Kouki Iwasaki demanding singles matches against him. Irie wants it to be at the Fire Festival which caused Otani to give him the Fire Festival sword pose. When they Irie & Iwasaki left, Otani praised Nobuhiro Shimatani for a good performance. Otani later spoke good things about Ganpro for how exciting the card and the wrestlers were today. He is sure there are some people who are annoyed that he’s there but he is just as much appearing on these shows to improve himself as he is to improve his opponents.

The Hardcore 4 Way Match ended quickly when Miyako Matsumoto attacked everyone with a barbed wire bat until Miss Mongol knocked her down with a Lariat and pinned her. Matsumoto then successfully appealed for the match to restart. The second match was a lot more chaotic. Itsuki Aoki put Shota through a table. Matsumoto was wheeled into a stack of chairs. She was also thrown off the top of a ladder onto Ken Ohka outside the ring. Mongol got the win with the Lariat again but this time it was to Shota for the three count.

The Jacket Match took on a new meaning when Ohka entered the ring wearing a suit and tie. Cherry, who was dressed in her judo outfit got angry and turned the bout into even more of a grudge match. As the match got more heated, both Ohka and Cherry removed their jackets to reveal they were wearing tanktops underneath. Cherry then used her blue belt to choke Ohka and hang him over the ropes. The bell rang but it was then announced that Cherry was disqualified. Ohka asked if Cherry was angry because they lost in the 1st Round of the Mixed Tag Tournament. He explained that if Katsumura & Haruhi go on to win the tournament then that means Ohka & Cherry are 2nd place by default (I guess the logic is from losing to the eventual champions). Cherry believed him and agreed to support Katsumura & Haruhi.

Yumehito Imanari isn’t letting today’s semi-final loss get him down. His MMA namesake Masakazu Imanari also lost today at the RIZIN show. He believes both of them are making “Imanari” the new trend in mixed martial arts!

It looks like The Weekend Lovers are hitting a rough patch. Shinichiro Tominaga told Asuka that when the weekend is over you should look forward to the next weekend. Asuka glared at him and left without saying a word.

Yuna Manase stormed the ring after the match angry at the fact that there is not another Ganbare☆Joshi show until August. She begged Ohka to let her put together a Ganjo show next month. He promised her she can do it.


Additional Attack Tomorrow, Dieno Takes Over Big Daddy’s Restaurant, Beer Garden-Like

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku & Pom Harajuku Vs Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto & Arisu Endo
2. Shoko Nakajima Vs Kaya Toribami
3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta Vs Miu Watanabe & Mahiro Kiryu
4. Mirai Maiumi Vs Yuki Arai
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Rika Tatsumi & Hyper Misao
6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Tomorrow is Miyu Yamashita’s chance to become the first Double Princess Champion in TJPW history. She was briefly a double champion in 2019 when she held the Princess Of Princess Title and SHINE Title at the same time. But Sakisama has been one of her impossible mountains to climb for almost her entire career. It was only recently she made some progress on that thanks to teaming with Maki Itoh this year. Targeting Mei Saint-Michel may be the right plan to win. If the champions win though and it’s Sakisama standing on top, everything is in place for her to do something she has never done before. Maybe Yamashita won’t be the first Double Princess Champion after all…

This week Yusuke Okada and Hisaya Imabayashi went to visit Kiyoshi Hayashishita’s steak restaurant for a meal. They noticed something was odd when they were only given sausages no matter what they ordered. Okada confronted the chef only to find out it was Danshoku Dieno in disguise! Okada then discovered that his friend Hayashishita was trapped in the restroom with a big, thick sausage in his mouth. Okada freed him and they chased Dieno out of the restaurant. The final straw came when they found Dieno changed the restaurant sign, renaming the restaurant into something vulgar. Hayashishita said he is usually a forgiving man but he will not stand for this! He gave Okada an inspiring speech and encouraged him to beat Dieno at Korakuen Hall. Okada vowed to win for Big Daddy!

GANBARE☆PRO “FACE/OFF 2021”, 12/06/2021
Kitazawa Town Hall
104 Fans

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase defeated Shota & Miss Mongol when Imanari pinned Shota with an Aerial Body Drop (10:31).
2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto when Ishii pinned Matsumoto with the Hidoiwaza (10:00).
3. Shu Sakurai Trial Single Match: Shinjiro Otani defeated Shu Sakurai with a Knifehand Strike Chop (16:45).
4. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki when Asuka pinned Aoki with the Safflower Robe (13:39).
5. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Ken Ohka & Cherry when Katsumura submitted Ohka with the Ninja Choke (16:36).

The 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament is finally under way. Every match in the opening round had a 30 minute time limit and any time limit draw would be decided with 1 Count Sudden Death rules. Most of the teams entering the tournament has their own team name to add to the fun. Also there were rumours spreading in the locker room during the show that a Mixed Tag Team Championship might be created and rewarded to the tournament winners.

In the main event Harukatsu Shoot (Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi) defeated Ken-chan Cherry-chan (Ken Ohka & Cherry). Katsumura blocked the Fire Spear with the Ninja Choke and held onto the move even when Ohka turned it into the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka couldn’t shake him off and had to give up. Cherry blamed Ohka for the lost and kept telling him he shouldn’t have tapped out no matter how bad his neck was getting twisted. Haruhi said her team will go on to win the tournament. They will also be defending the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow outside of Ganbare☆Pro.

The Weekend Lovers of Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga advance after beating Team Frenzy (Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki). The teamwork shown by Weekend Lovers was the deciding factor. They used a Double Super Kick to get rid of Iwasaki then doubleteamed Aoki until the finish. Iwasaki asked Aoki if they should practice under Ikuto Hidaka to get better. Aoki suggested bringing in Munenori Sawa instead. Asuka isn’t sure if the rumours of a new championship are true but if it is then she wants to be the first champion.

The non-tournament match had Shinjiro Otani beat Shu Sakurai as part of Sakurai’s trial series. It was Yumehito Imanari’s idea to put the match together because he wants Otani to wrestle in Ganpro more often. Imanari thinks there were some NOAH fans who came to the show today because of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. He is happy to see Ganpro grow but understands there is a limit due to its size which is why he called upon Otani to help them out. The heat of Ohka and the heat of Otani combined will create a hot pot of pro wrestling!

Back to the tournament. Harukaze Kogyo (Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE) eliminated Kinniku Kurukuru Shojo Tai (Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto) in an even 10 minutes. Ishii pinned Matsumoto with his modified version of the Emerald Flowsion. Irie shook his opponents’ hands after the match but ignored Matsumoto and left her alone in the ring. Backstage Irie threw in his support for a Mixed Tag Team Championship to be created. He’d fight for one with a different tag partner though. Meanwhile Ishii told HARUKAZE that he wants them to fight like they are going to split up if they lose, just like how it happened with DREAMS HARU TRUE. However HARUKAZE said she is fighting with the goal of reuniting DREAMS HARU TRUE.

Last but not least, Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun (Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase) defeated the team known as Yasashiku Naritai (Shota & Miss Mongol). The power of FMW was summoned when Shota & Miss Mongol did a United Thunder Fire Power Bomb to Imanari. But Imanari blocked Shota’s Frog Splash with his knees and pinned him with a Lou Thesz Press.

The semi-finals on 27th June are Harukatsu Shoot Vs Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun and Weekend Lovers Vs Harukaze Kogyo. The final is held on the same day.

110 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganjo Vs Actwres girl’Z: Moeka Haruhi defeated Rina Amikura with the Diving Foot Stomp (8:16).
2. Ganjo Jacket Match: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Cherry with the Dogi Ninja Choke (11:52).
3. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yumehito Imanari & Shota defeated Keisuke Ishii & Shu Sakurai when Shota pinned Sakurai with the Frog Splash (10:50).
4. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga (c) defeated Chris Brookes, Drew Parker & Miyako Matsumoto when Shinno pinned Parker with the Ranhei (20:31).
*V2 for Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga.
5. Special Single Match: Yuu Yamagata defeated HARUKAZE with the Cross Facelock (2:59).
6. Special Single Match: Yuu Yamagata defeated Yuna Manase with the Cross Facelock (7:07).

The second Ganbare☆Joshi produced show was meant to give the spotlight to HARUKAZE and Yuna Manase but sadly for them Yuu Yamagata rained on their parade. Yamagata’s first match was against HARUKAZE and she was given an Armbreaker from HARUKAZE before the match even started. HARUKAZE went all or nothing into an Armbar but Yamagata fought out of it and easily won the match in under three minutes with the Cross Facelock. Her immediate match with Manase afterwards was more challenging but the end result was the same. Yamagata avoided the Suzumi Dynamic and rolled Manase into the Cross Facelock to win both of her matches by submission.

Yamagata was in a bad mood over the two matches. She called her opponents phony idols who don’t really want to lead joshi wrestling. It is impossible for them to shine in the joshi world. Yamagata had one last thing to say before she would leave. She will never be in this organization again! Manase cried over her defeat and was comforted by Moeka Haruhi. She told her no matter what happens, no matter how ugly they look, they are representing Ganbare☆Wrestling. Even if they are completely defeated they should let the fans see it all. Manase understood her point. She came here to Ganpro from Tokyo Joshi Pro with a vow never to give up or run away. There will be another Ganbare☆Joshi show in June. Manase and HARUKAZE promised after Golden Week they will drag Yamagata back to prove her wrong!

Chris Brookes & Drew Parker weren’t exactly thrilled to be teaming with Miyako Matsumoto in the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles match. They were fine when left to their own devices (except for the moment where Parker tried to attack Hagane Shinno with scissors) but when Matsumoto wanted to get involved they would ignore her. Shinichiro Tominaga put them in position outside the ring for Asuka to Moonsault onto them. Matsumoto got a nearfall on Shinno with a Gannosuke Clutch. Shinno got one back and pinned Matsumoto with the Ranhei for a successful title defence. Brookes & Parker didn’t care about Matsumoto and left without her.

Minoru Fujita was at ringside working as a photographer during the Jacket Match. After Shuichiro Katsumura won the match against Cherry, Fujita shoved Ken Ohka into the ring. Katsumura then threw Ohka to the canvas and stole his wallet.

The Mixed Tag Tournament that was supposed to be held next month is confirmed to be cancelled. Haruhi thinks it will be brought back when it is safe to do so. And when it does she wants it to be named The Ganpro tournament.
