BASARA “VAJRA 49 ~FEAST~”, 19/10/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
202 Fans

1. Yusuke Kubo defeated Takato Nakano with a Gedo Clutch (9:38).
2. A Professional Wrestling Agency Which Can Be A Matrix: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Tatsuhiko Yoshino when Hagane submitted Ryu with a Walls Of Jericho (7:37).
3. Senga’s Strategy To Recapture Oosugi!: Hercules Senga & Atsushi Maruyama defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi when Senga pinned Stretchman with a Rope Assisted School Boy (9:01).
4. Doki! Hardcore Can 6-Man Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Masamune defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, SAGAT & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Urano with the Let’s Combine (17:25).
5. Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA & Fuminori Abe when Kodaka pinned Abe with the Isamuashi Zan (17:59).

It looked like Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi would work well together as a team but tension grew between them thanks to unwanted blind tags. Kodaka won the main event for the team anyway. Kodaka asked Ryuichi for a handshake after the match but Ryuichi gave him the Perfect Five instead. Ryuichi told Kodaka “You’re not sexy! You’re not American! My girlfriend is Ariana Grande!” and then he left the ring. Kodaka’s day wasn’t over yet because FUMA, Ryuichi Sekine and Takumi Tsukamoto all came out demanding a Union MAX Title match against him. Kodaka told them he will defend the title on 26th November but against who will be up for them to decide. Kodaka doesn’t care how they figure it out as long as they stop making so much noise with their arguing. When they all left, Kodaka said he was now standing alone under the heavens, a familiar situation for him. Well, alone except for the ring announcer Rikiya Shindo also being there. Shindo gave him a beer and Kodaka closed out the show holding a toast for himself.

It took him a few attempts but Ryuichi Sekine was able to submit Yasu Urano to the Let’s Combine. Most of his attempts were stopped by Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT throwing the steel cans at him including a Con-Chair-To style attack with an extra can placed over Sekine’s head.

Hercules Senga used the ropes for leverage to pin Best Stretchman V3. Despite being cheated, Stretchman agreed to give Tsutomu Oosugi back to Senga but only when Senga can beat him without cheating. Stretchman then recommended the audience to stay warm by doing stretching exercises because Japan is entering its coldest winter in 60 years.

Trans-Am ★Hiroshi announced the date for Hiroshi Aid, a special benefit show to help him while he is recovering from his shoulder injuries. The event takes place at Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR on 29th November. Hiroshi no longer needs to wear a shoulder brace but he has not been medically cleared to wrestle yet.

BASARA “VAJRA 45 ~OSHU BATTLE~” Results

September 4, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 45 ~OSHU BATTLE~”, 02/09/2017
Sendai City Miyagino Ward Cultural Center
136 Fans

1. SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano with the Trans-Am ★ Recliner (8:12).
2. Single Match With Beef Tongue As Ingredients: Atsushi Maruyama defeated Gouma Ryu by TKO (5:21).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Best Stretchman V3 when Tsumakoto pinned Stretchman with the Zudon (14:22).

5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Miyagino Ward~: Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita & Masamune ended in a Time Limit (30:00).

Isami Kodaka said that the main event felt like it lasted a blink of an eye. He talked about travelling to Puerto Rico for K-DOJO fifteen years ago. When he returned he found out that Minoru Fujita was now his teacher. He’s been learning from him ever since. Ryuichi Sekine wanted to say a few words but Fujita cut him off and told Kodaka to keep his indy wrestler silent. Sekine snapped back and told Fujita he’s an indy wrestler too. Fujita hugged everyone but didn’t look happy doing so.

FUMA got Ricky Fuji as his surprise tag team partner for the IRON PRIEST tag match. FUMA called the match perfect. He also announced Fuji will be a part of FUMA FEST in December.

Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama fought in a match involving a beef tongue and a 5 point system. Knock downs, rope breaks and beef tongue usage were scored against the wrestlers and the first to reach 5 points would lose. Maruyama won by the skin of his teeth with the beef tongue but wasn’t satisfied by the result. He attacked Gouma again but Gouma trapped him in a Cross Armbreaker until Maruyama tapped out.

Aichi Sportiva Arena
107 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Lottery Shuffle Tag Tournament – Round 1: Takumi Tsukamoto & Takato Nakano defeated Yusuke Kubo & Best Stretchman V3 when Tsukamoto pinned Stretchman with the Zudon (9:15).
2. Lottery Shuffle Tag Tournament – Round 1: Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT defeated Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Shinya when SAGAT pinned Shinya with a Cradle (11:40).

5. Lottery Shuffle Tag Tournament – Final: Yasu Urano & FUMA defeated Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT when FUMA pinned SAGAT with the Heavy Metal Anthem (14:51).

Yasu Urano & FUMA got along well as they fought all the way towards winning the Lottery Tag Tournament. FUMA nicknamed Urano “YASU-METAL” and chanted it often to motivate him. FUMA also gave Urano his custom heavy metal jacket to celebrate winning the tournament. FUMA said teaming with Urano brought back memories of them wrestling together as part of Ura-Shima-Kudo. According to FUMA he became so popular that the other members including Urano became jealous and they kicked him out before he could become the leader. But today FUMA saw the heavy metal in Urano’s soul and he wants to team with him more often. Urano asked if this means he is joining IRON PRIEST. FUMA said no because IRON PRIEST is a 3 piece band and he isn’t looking for new members at the moment. But Urano could be a support act for them. Urano admitted he is not good at heavy metal and he doesn’t like headbanging. He isn’t a part of BASARA and he doesn’t understand FUMA’s heavy metal references but everyone here is his friend.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi tried to get over his disappointment of missing today’s show by singing to the audience before the final took place.

5f. Isami Kodaka eliminated Naoki Tanizaki by Ring Out (22:57).

The next leg of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud was highlighted with another 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match this time with Hardcore rules. The Dove Pro team all entered wearing red baseball jerseys yelling “We are DOVE PRO!”. Isami Kodaka made his entrance wearing a costume made up of combined props from other BASARA wrestlers. He was carrying Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s American flag and Gouma Ryu’s law book, wore SAGAT’s feathered headpiece, Takato Nakano’s leggings, Best Stretchman V3 muffler and Yusuke Kubo’s armbands. Dove Pro gained the advantage by eliminated Ryota Nakatsu and Ryuichi Sekine early while only losing “brother” YASSHI on their side. FUMA and Gunso fought on top of a ladder and were both knocked out of the ring when Kodaka was thrown into them. Kodaka was left on his own but he caught Kabuki Kid with a School Boy to bring the match down to himself and Naoki Tanizaki as the final two. They exchanged Elbow Smashes on the apron until Kodaka gave Tanizaki a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the apron. Tanizaki then fell off the apron to get eliminated.

BASARA won the match but the fighting continued between the two teams at ringside. Kodaka calmed everyone down and told them to save it for tomorrow’s show. He then asked if Gunso was doing anything on 1st October. That is the date of Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary show in Korakuen Hall. Kodaka would like Gunso and some of the Dove Pro wrestlers to come over to the show. Gunso described the rivalry between BASARA and Dove Pro as an “Endless, Endless Summer”. He said Kodaka’s match with Kenshin Chikano will be the de facto final match of the feud. Chikano promised to make tomorrow an unforgettable day.

Yasu Urano used the referee as a shield to stop SAGAT from hitting a top rope attack. Urano then threw the ref into SAGAT, kicked SAGAT below the belt when the ref was disoriented and pinned SAGAT with an Inside Cradle.

Gouma Ryu said he was intimidated by the skills of his opponents but gained courage when he found out he was teaming with Yusuke Kubo, the man who will be challenging for the Union MAX Title tomorrow. Ryu yelled that he would destroy Kenshin Chikano & Rey Paloma but they easily beat him up.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Nanaka Kawamura Debut Match: HARUKAZE & Nanaka Kawamura Vs Emi Sakura & Sato

Way back in February, Ganbare☆Wrestling held an audition to find new trainees. The standout was a 21 year old woman named Nanaka Kawamura who wants to fulfill her mother’s dream of becoming a pro wrestler. Six months passed and she reemerged this week to promote her debut match to be held in September. Kawamura was born in Yokohama, Kanagawa on 26th December, 1995. She is 161cm high and her blood type is O. Away from wrestling, Kawamura is part of an idol group who all wear masks for their opponents, which explains the Jason hockey mask that is part of her outfit. Her aim isn’t to be a cute idol but a cool pro wrestler instead.

7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final – Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) defeated FUMA with the Perfect Plex (17:19).
*V2 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.

The final night of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament began with a suspenseful tiebreaker. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and FUMA finished in a dead heat in their block. Their group match ended in a Double KO so neither could put in a rightful claim for who deserved the spot in the final more. So they had to fight each other again in a tiebreaker match. This time FUMA came out on top, wearing out Hiroshi with Buzzsaw Kicks and then finally finishing him off with the Jawbreaker kick.

The stakes were raised in the final when Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi agreed to put the Union MAX Title on the line against FUMA. After all, there was no clear challenger on the horizon for the champ after he swept through the competition in the group stage. The ring was surrounded by IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family. All of them were cheering for their wrestler to win. The champion was in trouble when FUMA countered the Perfect Five into the Metal Fire From Hell. The end appeared to be coming when FUMA went for the Jawbreaker but Ryuichi made him freeze by pointing at him and shouting “YOU!” FUMA snapped out and gave Ryuichi a High Kick then a Superplex. FUMA was on fire until Ryuichi stopped him in his tracks with a Lariat. Now Ryuichi was shaking the ropes in anticipation and he hit another Lariat for a nearfall. The end finally came when Ryuichi hit the Perfect Five and it was enough to pin FUMA for the three count.

Ryuichi happily accepted his 500,000 yen cash prize. He told FUMA he dislikes the Heavy Metal hand sign but he also doesn’t mind heavy metal music in general so they should wrestle again some time. He tried to walk towards FUMA for a handshake but stopped when SAGAT accidentally stepped on the microphone cable. Ryuichi and Hiroshi attacked SAGAT as punishment then went back to shake FUMA’s hand. The Trans-Am ★ Family declared “War is over. Love and peace.” However, Yusuke Kubo disagreed. He told the Family in English that the war is not over and IRON PRIEST won’t be shaking hands with them. IRON PRIEST will never give up! He challenged them to a match on 20th July. They agreed but first, Ryuichi is taking his prize money to Las Vegas.

Yasu Urano wanted to experience a Hardcore Match and by God he got what he wanted. Isami Kodaka brought out a ladder and set it up in the ring. Then when the match began everyone immediately brought in chairs and swung away at each other. Kodaka later busted him open with a chairshot. Takumi Tsukamoto fended off Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine with his giant hammer. Kodaka then hit the Chair Assisted Diving Double Knee Drop on Tsukamoto. Urano broke the pin and DDT’d Kodaka onto the chair. Sekine wiped out Tsukamoto with a Topé Suicida while Kodaka hit Urano with a Shining Wizard. Kodaka climbed the ladder but Urano followed. The two exchanged strikes until Kodaka knocked Urano off the ladder. He then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop from the ladder to Urano. After that there was no way Urano could kick out. When the match was over Kodaka asked Urano if he enjoyed his first Hardcore Match. Urano said he did not take this match lightly and he wanted to do as well as SAGAT would. Urano then asked if he could continue to wrestle in BASARA, but no more Hardcore Matches. Kodaka brought up the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. There have been two tournaments previously and they were won by Urano and Kodaka. So let’s do it again! Both of them announced they will enter the next Budokai tournament which will take place in Korakuen Hall instead of Shinjuku on 28th December. Naoki Tanizaki also threw his name into the hat when he found out about it.

Ryota Nakatsu’s plan to target Magnitude Kishiwada’s left arm didn’t work. His opponent was able to shrug off the damage and cut him off with a Lariat late in the match. He only got a nearfall with the Diving Body Press. When that didn’t work, Kishiwada put Nakatsu into a Single Leg Crab Hold and dragged him into the middle of the ring for the submission victory.

Takato Nakano stepped up to Naoki Tanizaki, throwing Chops when Tanizaki mocked him for being the “Youngster of BASARA”. Nakano kicked out of the Reverse Implant but fell to the normal version of the move. Nakano slapped the mat in disappointment after the match.

Yuko Miyamoto will be on the 1st October Korakuen Hall show. The event will celebrate Isami Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary in wrestling.
