The race to the top in both groups are now getting tight with one more set of matches left to go. Isami Kodaka was knocked out of the running with a shock defeat to SAGAT. The match between Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and FUMA was so intense that neither could answer the 10 count and the match was ruled a draw. The two are still tied in first so it will all come down to their separate final matches.

Over In Block A, Ryuichi Sekine scored his fourth straight win in a row. He and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi will fight each other to win their group on the final day. Yusuke Kubo beat Takumi Tsukamoto in their last bout of the tournament. Neither will make it to the final but at least Kubo can be satisfied by finishing ahead of Tsukamoto.

Yasu Urano appeared after the main event. He said when he became a freelancer he was able to reset his mind and think about where he wanted to wrestle outside of DDT. He also thought about going to other places to visit old friends. He pointed out SAGAT and Tsukamoto as friends he was surprised to see again. Oh, and Hiroshi too. Kodaka asked Urano if he would like to fight with his friends again. Urano said he would and he asked if he could wrestle in BASARA. Kodaka agreed and invited him to compete at the Shinjuku show on 5th July. Urano then said in his 17 years of wrestling there are certain matches he was never a part of. So for his first BASARA match he wants a Hardcore Tag Match! Kodaka agreed to be one of his opponents. Both will go find wrestlers to team with in the meantime.

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (6)
-. FUMA (6)
3. Isami Kodaka (4)
-. Ryota Nakatsu (4)
5. SAGAT (0)
-. Gouma Ryu (0)

SAGAT is no closer to getting his first win in this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. He fell to Ryota Nakatsu in the main event. Technical wrestling defeated brute force in this contest. Nakatsu joked that his baseball practice at the Tokyo Dome earlier in the day helped him win the match. He now looks ahead to his final group match against Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

Cavalry’s success continued with Ryuichi Sekine beating Yusuke Kubo in the semi-main event. Sekine is currently undefeated with two matches left on his schedule.

While MC.33 and Trans-Am ★ Shinya were wrestling, Shinya asked what does the MC stand for? MC.33 said MCs are people who are familiar with music. Suddenly MC.33 transformed the wrestling match into an entrance music quiz. The Trans-Am ★ Family got the questions right and used the moves of Stone Cold and The Rock after correctly guessing their songs. Angry at losing, MC.33 brought out a samurai sword and sliced through the Trans-Am ★ Family. However they got back up as soon as they realised it was a fake sword. They knocked MC.33 out of the ring with a Big Boot and Shinya then pinned Fuminori Abe with the Δ Drive.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is almost on the home clear with one match left for him to fight for in Block A. He added a submission move to his repertoire, the Trans-Am ★ Shooter. The rookie Takato Nakano had nowhere to go when he was locked in the move. The only opponent left for him is Ryuichi Sekine. And wouldn’t you know it, Sekine is the only one who can realistically catch up with him at this point.

FUMA came to the show to wrestle but Gouma Ryu wanted to talk about music instead. Ryu said he’s been listening to Dreams Come True and B’z because they make music that anyone can listen to. He wanted to know why FUMA likes heavy metal. FUMA said it is because of people like Ryu and he then attacked him to start the match. Ryu fought back by summoning the power of Tetsuya Komuro and other J-Pop artists. When the match reached its end, FUMA admitted that the music of B’z is close to metal so they’re ok. He then pinned Ryu with the Heavy Metal Anthem.

Best Stretchman V3 thought Takumi Tsukamoto was a monster fisherman because he uses the Fisherman Suplex. Tsukamoto proved him wrong by using the Dodon to beat him. Although he is out of the tournament, Tsukamoto wants to finish his run by beating Yusuke Kubo so he can finish with 6 points.

Isami Kodaka will hold an event celebrating his 15th Anniversary in wrestling at Korakuen Hall on 1st October. The show will feature wrestlers associated with Isami from all over the wrestling industry, not just BASARA.

5. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA (c) with the Perfect Five (13:53).
*FUMA fails in V2. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi becomes the 8th Union MAX Champion!
6. DDT Foods Strongest Store Decision Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Match: Isami Kodaka & Akito defeated KUDO & Gota Ihashi and Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi when Kodaka pinned Ihashi with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the south stage (11:58).

Today’s show was the last call for Tavern Wrestling before BASARA takes over the format for their own events in Shin-Kiba 1st RING later this year. The ring announcer Rikiya Shindo kicked off the show by asking if everybody was already drunk, then he held a toast for the final Tavern Wrestling show.

A wild 3 Way Tag Match fought under Falls Count Anywhere Rules main evented the show. Isami Kodaka took a page out of his recent team mate Keiji Muto’s playbook and hit a Shining Wizard to Gota Ihashi. Meanwhile KUDO laid out Makoto Oishi, Soma Takao and Akito on separate rows of the southern bleachers. Kodaka knocked KUDO off and stepped on each of the wrestlers as he climbed up to the top. From there he jumped over all of them to hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on Ihashi for the victory. Kodaka promised after the match that the BASARA shows under this format will be even more crazy.

The Union MAX Title now belongs to the Trans-Am group! FUMA’s title reign was cut down thanks to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. The challenger did well to block and avoid the Jawbreaker kick throughout the closing minutes. His Lariats were the difference maker and FUMA was too dazed by them to do anything. That made it easy for Ryuichi to pick him up and drop him down with the Perfect Five. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi declared that “The Champ Is Here!” as the crowd chanted “USA!” But Ryuichi Sekine then appeared to challenge the new champion. Ryuichi is strong but Nakatsu thinks he is stronger. He was only a trainee when Union Pro closed down but he strongly wants to win the title. Ryuichi called Nakatsu a young boy and accepted the challenge. Nakatsu picked the date and location, Korakuen Hall on 29th April!

Alliances were quickly formed and broken during the 5 Way Match. Wrestlers kept pairing up with each other to double team the opposition then a betrayal would happen so someone could pick a “new friend” to help them. In an awkward moment Joey Ryan ended up grabbing Sayaka Obihiro’s chest then commented on how flat she is. Obihiro froze with shock and was out of it for the rest of the match. Ryan later pinned Cherry while Yusuke Kubo tried to comfort Obihiro outside the ring.

Daichi Kazato is now the Best Stretchman V3. He wrestled in a loud orange and blue superhero bodysuit and used a lot of stretching submission moves on his opponents. With a triumphant debut, Stretchman is now looking forward to creating a stir in BASARA and protecting the world from evil.

1. Hagane defeated Daichi Kazato with the Ryanhei (8:23).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Fuminori Abe defeated Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when Abe pinned both Ryu and Maruyama with the Rokudenashi Kick (12:07).
3. IRON PRIEST Vs Double ★ Trans-Am: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Shinya defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Hiroshi pinned Kubo with the Perfect Plex (11:28).
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Gunso & Kabuki Kid defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & SAGAT when Gunso pinned SAGAT with the Diving Guillotine Drop With A Ladder (13:37).
5. Special Tag Match: Dick Togo & Ikuto Hidaka defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Togo pinned Nakatsu with the Diving Senton (18:18).
6. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka defeated Minoru Tanaka with the European Clutch (15:46).

Both Isami Kodaka and Minoru Tanaka were pleased with their match. Kodaka said he looks up to Tanaka and is looking forward to more matches with him because today wasn’t enough.

Dick Togo laughed when Ryuichi Sekine demanded a rematch so they could fight over and over and over. Meanwhile Ryota Nakatsu was holding his stomach still feeling the effects of the Diving Senton.

Gunso and his up-tempo music continues to rack up wins in BASARA. He beat up SAGAT with a chair, placed a ladder over him and then hit the Diving Guillotine Drop for the 3 count. Gunso says he has never lost in Dub Pro Wrestling. He and his buddy Kabuki Kid are Hardcore Craftsmen. SAGAT still has his eyes on Gunso though. He knows that Gunso eventually wants to face Kodaka but until then SAGAT will continue to chase after him.

Yusuke Kubo is offended by Shinya Ishida’s recent transformation into an American wrestler. He asked Shinya if he “abandoned the heart of the Japanese” while they wrestled each other. Shinya lured FUMA out of the ring while Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi hit Kubo with the Perfect Plex to win. FUMA, well, was fuming over the result and is annoyed with the Trans-Am team. He thinks they are all similarly named bastards with no personalities. They don’t even know about the Bay Area slash metal scene from the 1980s like he does!

Fuminori Abe was accused of being a fraudulent priest conning people out of money. Abe, who is allegedly a qualified monk, entered the ring for his trial wearing his monk clothing. Ryota Nakatsu and Ryuichi Sekine were called down as witnesses and asked to explain Abe’s method of conning people. Abe then exposed Sekine’s secret that he likes to spend his private time going to a pervert club where he can touch boobs. Sekine was especially embarrassed by the accusation because they were being watched live on DDT UNIVERSE. The All Japan balance was brought up and it ended up with Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama arguing with each other. They then turned to Abe, convinced he had cash that didn’t belong to him. Abe knocked both of them out and laid on top of both of them in a praying position for the double pin. He was declared Not Guilty afterwards.

Daichi Kazato is really getting into his stretching regime. So much so that he is going to become reborn on as the “Best Stretchman” on 23rd March.

A windy and chilly day didn’t stop Tokyo Joshi Pro from returning to Kanagawa Yokodai Station for their second annual outdoor doubleshot shows. Prizes were given to the winners by the sponsors. For example Miyu Yamashita and Mil Clown were given a box of apples and potatoes for winning the main event.

Isami Kodaka wrestled in his Son Goku costume on both shows. It got over with the kids in the audience and some shouted “Goku, do your best!” at him. He hit Yusuke Kubo with the Kamehameha and then summoned a Spirit Bomb for his Diving Double Knee Drop.

FUMA made his entrances on a motorbike.

Nonoko explained to the audience that her chest is so big because she absorbs children to gain power. Children like Nodoka-oneesan. Fortunately, Nodoka was able to beat her and protect the children in the crowd from being eaten.

Marika Kobashi announced she passed her recent high school exams. She is still focusing on her education so wasn’t able to wrestle but she stuck around for the event to show her support.

FUMA and Yusuke Kubo were involved in a battle of IRON PRIEST. FUMA came out on top but both he and Kubo praised each other and left the ring together on FUMA’s motorcycle.

Kodaka and SAGAT immediately brawled outside the ring and both were counted out. A rematch was granted when the audience called for a restart. The tail on Kodaka’s Goku costume turned out to be his weak point. SAGAT targeted the tail by biting and pulling it. Kodaka dodged the Goregrind and rolled SAGAT into a Cradle for the three count.

Rika Tatsumi is now using a Running Hip Attack called the Running Angel Attack to win matches.

Azusa Takigawa had to explain the concept of marriage to Mil Clown. Apparently marriage doesn’t exist in the Magical Country.

SAGAT and Yuya Okada spent time before the show explaining the rules of pro wrestling to anyone in the audience who was watching for the first time. SAGAT laid on the canvas and a trainee was called in to cover him as an example of a pinfall. He then put SAGAT in a Sleeper Hold to show off a submission move. SAGAT ended up getting angry and he bit Okada. In return Okada pulled SAGAT’s hair until SAGAT backed off. Okada was able to use that as an example of fouls and disqualifications.

Minoru Tanaka took the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Title belt and raised it in front of Takumi Tsukamoto’s face after beating him. The Aldini Brothers will be defending the titles against Tanaka and Koji Kanemoto in Zero1 tomorrow.

The 3 Way Match allowed Daichi Kazato and Tsutomu Oosugi to explain the advantages of stretching and how it can improve a wrestler’s abilities. However they are currently worried about overdoing it so Gouma Ryu attacked them to see if they were right. However as he did this a tablet flew out of Kazato’s mouth. He admitted it was Sulpiride and he takes it to get rid of his anxiety. Without it he started losing his temper so Ryu and Oosugi teamed up on him to calm him down.

5. Hardcore Match: Gunso defeated SAGAT with a Chair Attack (13:14).
6. Union MAX Title: FUMA (c) defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Jawbreaker (17:56).
*V1 for FUMA.

FUMA was victorious in the main event but Ryuichi Sekine isn’t going to take it easily. Sekine yelled at FUMA after the match and swore that he will eventually win the Union MAX Title from him. The other members of Cavalry had to restrain Sekine and help him walk away from the ring. FUMA joked that his own hair was the same length as Phil Anselmo’s from his heyday in Pantera. He then proclaimed himself the “KING OF METAL WRESTLING”.

Gunso is quickly making a name for himself in BASARA. He defeated SAGAT in a Hardcore Match, even surviving a pre-match ambush from his opponent. His fighting style is called “Dub Wrestling” and music played as the two wrestlers battered each other with chairs. SAGAT was eventually worn down until Gunso finally threw a chair right at his face to keep him down long enough for the three count. Even then the two traded Heabutts with each other after the match.

Even though Koji Iwamoto is still a part of Cavalry, he entered the ring wearing an All Japan T-shirt. Today was his first appearance in BASARA since becoming affiliated with AJPW. Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Tatsuhiko Yoshino were described as looking like Japanese tourists in Paris. They wore sunglasses, backbacks and had selfie sticks. Kodaka had enough with the silliness and broke his stick but Yoshino then yelled he needed that for work! Kodaka proceeded to take his smartphone and use it as a weapon while Yoshino panicked over it getting damaged. Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto found Yoshino so annoying they turned on him. Even the referee Yuya Okada got a dig in when Yoshino wasn’t looking. They all joined in with Cavalry for a Train Attack on Yoshino then counted along to Iwamoto pinning him.

Yusuke Kubo had a special opponent today, it was Minoru Tanaka! The two had a back and forth match that Tanaka won with a Diving Double Stomp he calls the B”D”F.

Today’s wrestling trial was a fraud case that was fresh off the oven. Hagane came to Shin-Kiba 1st RING to be in the Fighting Musical MAKAI show. When that was over he decided to stay in the building for the BASARA show. By doing so he avoided paying the entry fee and was accused of fraud. Hagane said he normally introduces himself as Madoka and wrestles in BASARA anyway. Atsushi Maruyama admitted that Hagane is a nice name. Further questioning turned into advertising for MAKAI’s next show in Shinjuku FACE on 2nd March. The trial broke down and turned into a match where Hagane pinned both Matsuyama and Gouma Ryu with La Bufadora (Springboard Moonsault). Hagane was then declared innocent.

Shinya Ishida’s luggage was stolen before the show so he arrived at the building without his wrestling gear. Luckily for him Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi gave him spare American style wrestling tights that would temporarily transform Shinya Ishida into Trans-Am ★ Ishida. The new look was a confidence boost and the Double Trans-Ams won their match against Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi.
