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.

As night fell the girls held their second show. Yuu was here this time and got the pin in the main event. She hopes that the next time Toyko Joshi comes to Kanagawa Station it will be even bigger and bigger.

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.

5. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT defeated FUMA & Hagane when Ryuichi pinned FUMA with the Perfect Five (14:03).

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi in English demanded a Union MAX Title shot after pinning FUMA in the main event. After FUMA accepted and left the ring, Ryuichi, the other Trans-Ams and SAGAT all celebrated to the American national anthem.

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.

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Shinya Ishida defeated Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi when Hiroshi pinned Kazato with the Perfect Plex (10:05).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when Hagane pinned Maruyama with La Bufadora (12:54).

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.

5. NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu (c) defeated Ikuto Hidaka & Sean Guinness when Sekine submitted Guinness with the Let’s Combine (24:17).
*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: FUMA defeated Isami Kodaka (c) with the Jawbreaker (19:55).
*Isami Kodaka fails in V1. FUMA becomes the 7th Union MAX Champion!

After unsealing the Union MAX Championship and winning it back on Christmas Day, Isami Kodaka already lost the title in his first defence! FUMA with his tens of millions of metal heads supporting him from the darkness defeated his rival to win the title. It happened when FUMA blocked the Isamuashi Zan by catching Isami’s leg. FUMA then hit the Metal Fire From Hell, a German Suplex and finally the Jawbreaker kick. FUMA’s victory speech was about how everyone in BASARA loves metal music whether it is slush metal, death metal, melodic metal or even black metal. But the real joy is found in heavy metal! Kodaka accepted defeat and invited Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Ryuichi Sekine into the ring to stand beside FUMA. He asked is FUMA satisfied with just beating him once? Is a single win enough for FUMA to think he is better than Kodaka? No, Kodaka wants FUMA to beat him again and progress further than he ever did. Kodaka challenged FUMA, Hiroshi and Sekine to overtake him in the race to the top of BASARA because Kodaka is still going to be here. FUMA accepted the challenge and claims he will shut down Kodaka. “Keep on rockin’! We are Heavy Metal! We are IRON PRIEST!”

Today is Takumi Tsukamoto’s 26th birthday so Cavalry were ready to give him a birthday bashing! They even screamed “Happy birthday!” to him while attacking him and targeting his arm. Tsukamoto fought out of the rough spot and won the match with some help from Hi69. However after the match Ryota Nakatsu pointed at Tsukamoto’s NWA Light Heavyweight Tag Title and indicated he is coming for that belt.
