BASARA “BASARA 100 ~TENKA ISHIN~”, 07/07/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall
365 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. SAGAT defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Zero Distance Goregrind (8:49).
2. Aiseki Tag Vs Speed Of Sounds!: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga defeated Fuminori Abe & Ikuto Hidaka when Oosugi pinned Abe with a Cradle (7:44).
3. 3 Way Tag Match: Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizara defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano and Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino when Nakatsu pinned Nakano with the V Slider (11:20).
4. Special Single Match: Daichi Kazato defeated Best Stretchman V3 (Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi) with the Explosive Axe Bomber (10:58).
5. Double Dragon Vs Sakigake!! Iron Family ~ Hardcore Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryuji Ito defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Sekine submitted FUMA with the Combine (14:47).
6. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final: Isami Kodaka defeated Minoru Fujita with the Isamiashi Zan (18:59).

The all Sento Minzoku final in the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ was won by Isami Kodaka! In the semi-finals both Kodaka and Minoru Fujita won their matches with the Samson Clutch so the move was expected to show up here. Kodaka used it first but Fujita was able to kick out of it. The same result happened when Fujita used the same move. Fujita went for the Fire Spear but Kodaka cut it off with a Knee Strike and won the match with the Isamiashi Zan. Kodaka called Fujita his master thanked him from the bottom of his heart. And since the 500,000 yen prize originally belonged to Kodaka anyway, he decided to give the money over to Fujita so he can put together his own BASARA show on 24th July. Fujita accepted the money but admitted there isn’t much time for him to prepare his plans. The show ended with all of Sento Minzoku standing together wishing everyone “PEACE & Fxxk!”

Ryuji Ito’s visit to BASARA had him and Ryuichi Sekine facing FUMA & Yusuke Kubo in a Hardcore match. Chairs, steel cans and a ladder were used by both teams to pummel each other. Ito hit FUMA with a chair so hard across the back that the chair’s frame bent. FUMA & Kubo gave Sekine the Crucifixion Of Death onto the ladder. Sekine Superplexed FUMA onto the steel cans. He finally put FUMA away by blocking a chair attack and applying the Combine to make FUMA give up.

The transformation of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi into Perfect Best Stretchman V3 meant that Daichi Kazato had to fight his own creation. Kazato used his stretching submission moves but found out that Stretchman was able to withstand them. Stretchman took out a spare Best Stretchman hood and forced it onto Kazato’s head. However Kazato’s will was too strong and he was able to rip it off. He went to hit an Axe Bomber when Stretchman suddenly removed his own hood, turning himself back into Hiroshi. He told Kazato he was now free from the Stretchman’s power but it was a trap! When Kazato dropped his guard, Hiroshi put the hood back on and struck Kazato with a Trigger Point strike. He went for the Stretch Bomber but Kazato countered it with the Rider Kick. He unmasked Stretchman again and hit the Explosive Axe Bomber for the three count.

Kazato said he finally surpassed Best Stretchman V3 but he could still hear V3’s voice in the hood. He leaned in to listen closer and the hood one again found its way onto Kazato’s head! V3 said he can die many times but will always return. But there is nothing to fear. It turns out Kazato has passed V3’s challenge! His reward is the ability to use the power of Best Stretchman without the need to wear the hood. Kazato tested it out by stretching the referee to great effect. Excited with his newly gained powers, Kazato chose the next person he must surpass. Hiro Tsumaki, aka FUMA!

The 3 Way Tag was used by Ryota Nakatsu to prepare for the annual BASARA Vs Dove Pro summer series. The team of Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino did well together despite their lack of experience compared to everyone else. But in the end Nakatsu pinned Nakano with the V Slider.

It will take more than a Rabbit Punch to take out Banana Senga. He still had the wherewithal to block Fuminori Abe and set up Tsutomu Oosugi to Cradle him. Speed Of Sounds also did a good job keeping Ikuto Hidaka at bay.

SAGAT was able to counter the Orange Sunset into a short range Goregrind to beat Daiki Shimomura. With this result SAGAT avenged the pin he took from Shimomura at last month’s tag match.

1. 3 Way Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo and Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino when Sekine submitted Nakano with the Let’s Combine (8:31).
2. Yasu Urano (Best Stretchman V3), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Best Stretchman V3) & Gouma Ryu (Best Stretchman V3) defeated Best Stretchman V3 (Daichi Kazato), Best Stretchman Amazon & Stretchman Man when Hiroshi pinned V3 after the Double Trigger Slam (5:28).
3. Special Single Match: Kota Umeda defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Umeda Driver (12:06).
4. Sparky Vs Aiseki Tag!: Fumihiro Abe & Ikuto Hidaka defeated Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa when Abe submitted Takizawa with the Manjigatame (11:14).
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi Final: Isami Kodaka defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Modified Samson Clutch (12:14).
6. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi Final: Minoru Fujita defeated SAGAT with a Modified Samson Clutch (14:27).

The Heaven Summit final will be an all Sento Minzoku affair with Isami Kodaka and Minoru Fujita both being victorious today. The connection between them was established even further when both of them won their matches with the same move, the Samson Clutch. Fujita used it to beat SAGAT after he blocked the Goregrind with his knees while Kodaka used it to get his win back from Ryota Nakatsu. Kodaka said he has known Fujita for almost 18 years going back to when he wrestled for K-DOJO. He only has gratitude for him and feels he never got an opportunity to truly surpass him until now. Fujita apologised to SAGAT’s fans over his result and said he will be teaching Kodaka all over again when they lock up in the final on 7th July. Kodaka responded he isn’t going to fight for BASARA or Sento Minzoku. He is going to fight in the final for himself. He wished Fujita “Peace & Fuck” before leaving the ring. Fujita’s final words were he still has fight left in him and since he won’t be able to drink much on 7th July, he will get drunk with the fans now instead.

Kota Umeda and Daiki Shimomura embraced after their match. It is the final time the two DNA wrestlers will face each other before Umeda quits wrestling.

The Best Stretchman hood saga is getting out of control. Multiple hoods found their way over the heads of Yasu Urano, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Gouma Ryu during their match. They all transformed into Best Stretchmen and used their powers to beat the original with a Double Choke Slam. It turns out the spirit of Best Stretchman V3 no longer wants to use Daichi Kazato as its host body and was searching all along for a new fit body to possess. It found an ideal host in the form of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, turning him into Perfect Best Stretchman V3! A match between him and Kazato was made for 7th July.

BASARA’s new independent fan club that will launch soon will be called HOUSE of BASARA.

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura (c) Vs Hiroshi Yamato

For a man as well traveled in the Japanese scene as Hiroshi Yamato, the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title would be the perfect symbol to represent his status. Yamato believes he can raise the prestige of the championship by defending it across the 50-ish promotions he has wrestled for.

A retired Guts World championship is being resurrected for the feud between GPW and Real GUTS Army. This was Ken Ohka’s idea because he is becoming more and more hungry to be a champion again. Also the high stakes of a title match shows which wrestlers are the ones with real guts.

The newly created P.P.P. Tokyo gets a warm up against one of Ganpro’s best.

1. Masahiro Takanashi Vs Danshoku Dieno

Last year Masahiro Takanashi ran his 15th anniversary show in Ryogoku KFC Hall. The show was so successful that he is doing another show there this September.

BASARA “BASARA 98 ~ASUKAYAMA~”, 16/06/2019
160 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano defeated Fuminori Abe & Masato Kamino when Tsukamoto pinned Kamino with a Half Crab Hold (12:55).
2. FUMA (Best Stretchman V3) & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Best Stretchman V3 (Daichi Kazato) & Stretchman Man when FUMA pinned V3 with the Best Stretch Bomber (4:41).
3. Sento Minzoku Vs Sakigake!! Iron Family: Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura defeated SAGAT & Yusuke Kubo when Shimomura pinned SAGAT with the Orange Sunset (10:23).
4. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Ryota Nakatsu defeated Takato Nakano with a Cross Armbreaker (11:45).
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Isami Kodaka defeated Tsutomu Oosugi (w/ Banana Senga) with a Modified Forward Roll (20:15).

The Heaven Summit semi-finals are now official. Isami Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu join Minoru Fujita and SAGAT in the final four. After Kodaka defeated Tsutomu Oosuji, he said BASARA has given him many good rivals but he cannot afford to give away the 500,000 yen tournament prize to anyone else but himself! He also told everyone the new catchphrase he came up with when he was at Game Changer Wrestling earlier this month: “Peace & Fuck!”

Nakatsu was able to counter Takato Nakano’s La Magistral Cradle into a Cross Armbreaker to make him tap. He didn’t take Nakano lightly because Nakano was able to beat Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi with a flash pin in the 1st Round. However Nakatsu believes he trains too much for Nakano to ever catch up with him. Now Nakatsu gets to wrestle Kodaka in a singles match for the first time in three months.

If SAGAT thought he was upper tier now with his tournament run then Daiki Shimomura sent him crashing back down to Earth. A surprise Sunset Orange pinned SAGAT for the big tag match upset. FUMA is trying to keep SAGAT motivated by saying he has the prestige of the Iron Family inside him but SAGAT can’t help but feel angry over the result.

The mysterious power of the Best Stretchman hood was shown again in Match #2 when it was passed from wrestler to wrestler, briefly turning them into Best Stretchman V3. FUMA ended up with the hood and he used the Best Stretch Bomber to pin V3/Daichi Kazato. Afterwards FUMA as V3 yelled that everyone was still weak. He ordered everyone to do 666 stretches until Stretchman Man pulled the hood off him.

3. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 1: Isami Kodaka defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Fundo No Tsumi (8:49).
4. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 1: Tsutomu Oosugi (w/ Banana Senga) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with a School Boy (2:52).

7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 1: Yasu Urano defeated Masato Kamino with an Inverted Hurricanrana (9:52).
8. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 1: SAGAT defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Goregrind (11:35).

The opening show of this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ began with news that the winner will receive a 500,000 yen cash prize. The big news coming out of the 1st Round is Ryuichi Sekine getting eliminated by SAGAT! The Union MAX Champion couldn’t get the Let’s Combine locked in and that ended up costing him. SAGAT took him down with a Short Range Lariat and pinned him with the Goregrind. SAGAT kept asking himself in his victory speech if this was a dream. The audience cheers made him realise this was real.

Daichi Kazato was in for a bit of a fright when FUMA found the hood belonging to Best Stretchman V3 hidden in Kazato’s tights. FUMA put on the hood for a taunt but suddenly transformed into a Best Stretchman and did his moves! Kazato took the hood back and wore it himself. He also attached a large rubber band from his waist to the ropes to keep him grounded against FUMA’s attacks. That backfired when Kazato dove off the top rope and the band held him back. That allowed FUMA to hit the Jawbreaker kick for the win.

If Minoru Fujita wins the tournament, he wants to spend the 500,000 yen on his own independently produced show using the BASARA roster.

A knee injury early into the match ruined Takumi Tsukamoto’s chances of advancing. He missed a top rope attack and landed on his knee. Tsutomu Oosugi targeted the injury with a low Dropkick and quickly got the pin with a School Boy.

Isami Kodaka used a Double Wrist Clutch Exploder to win against his stablemate Daiki Shimomura. The move is now called the Fundo No Tsumi (Sin Of Rage).

The other big upset in Round 1 was Takato Nakano eliminating the first Heaven Summit winner Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi! Nakano used the Warrior’s Return as a counter for Hiroshi’s Riki Lariat.

The 2nd Round matches are Takato Nakano Vs Ryota Nakatsu, Isami Kodaka Vs Tsutomu Oosugi, Minoru Fujita Vs FUMA and Yasu Urano Vs SAGAT.

Gunso appeared during the show to ask Kodaka when and where the annual summertime rivalry between BASARA and Dove Pro will begin? They agreed to do shows in August. There will also be a prelude bout on 28th July.
