BASARA “BASARA 101 ~BANQUET~”, 24/07/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

Team Fujita: Minoru Fujita, Takumi Tsukamoto, Ryota Nakatsu, Yasu Urano, SAGAT, Daiki Shimomura, Masato Kamino, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, X

Even though Isami Kodaka won this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~, he gave the prize money over to Minoru Fujita so he could produce his own BASARA show. Fujita came up with the idea of a team challenge called “Banquet Fight 2019” between himself and Kodaka. A partial card has been made after the two teams were drafted by the captains. Due to an odd number of wrestlers available, Fujita’s team is one man short so the missing name in the main event is a mystery for now.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “LAST DANCE IS FOR ME 2019” Results

July 17, 2019

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “LAST DANCE IS FOR ME 2019”, 17/07/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
141 Fans

1. If It Fights, It Is a Man! The Gate Of Confrontation Has Finally Been Opened!!: Ultra Soki & Yuta Suzuki defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Shuhei Washida when Soki pinned Washida with the Nishime Otoshi (10:55).
2. Kochoranbu! Ganjo Vs Actwres girl’Z All Round Fight Round 2: Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE defeated Momo Tani & Ayumi Hayashi when Haruhi pinned Tani with the 79.5MHz (10:38).
3. Great Conflict That Is Not Over Yet! Momota Family Vs Naoshi Sano: Naoshi Sano defeated Chikara with an Axe Bomber (11:15).
4. Ganpro Vs P.P.P. Full Battle: Keisuke Ishii defeated Mitomi Masayuki with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (10:32).
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura (c) defeated Hiroshi Yamato with the Ninja Choke (19:22).
*V2 for Shuichiro Katsumura.
6. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles – 20th Champions Decision Match: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol defeated Guts Ishijima, Masked Mystery & Shota when Mongol pinned Shota with a Cross Body (13:06).
*GPW become the 20th GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

Miss Mongol thanked Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari for giving her the opportunities to wrestle even at her age. Before the show took place Mongol contacted Atsushi Onita for permission to close out the show the same way he used to. Onita gave her his blessing but after she did it, the Real GUTS Army attacked them. Shota said today’s result was a fluke and he demanded some rematches to take place on 10th and 11th August. Guts Ishijima won’t be at the 10th August show because he already has a booking with 666. Shota promised to bring along a replacement.

Minoru Fujita approached Shuichiro Katsumura after the semi-main and asked for a match with him. Fujita originally promised he would never come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling but he really wants to wrestle Katsumura. They agreed to have a match on 10th August but the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title will not be on the line.

Naoshi Sano beat Chikara clean then challenged Mitsuo Momota to a match. However Momota had another idea. It is clear that he and his son cannot beat Sano so rather then fight him again, they should all team up instead! That would be a better way for them to study Sano’s strength. Sano and Chikara were both puzzled by the idea but Momota convinced them to try it out.

Ken Ohka had some big news for Kouki Iwasaki. Next month he is going to have a couple of opponents from Big Japan coming in! Iwasaki faces Akira Hyodo on 10th August and Ryuichi Kawakami on the 11th!

Ohka and Shuhei Washida attempted to Bottle Cap Challenge before the show began but they both failed. So they changed the rules into a water drinking contest. Washida beat Ohka.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Calbee & Frito Lay Collaboration Match ~Potato Snacks Agency War No. 1 Final Battle~: King Potato Chips, Masahiro Takanashi & Gota & Asuka Ihashi Vs Dragon Potato Mask, Akito, Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai
2. 3 Way Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya
3. Kota Umeda Great Match: Kota Umeda, Shunma Katsumata, Mike Bailey & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Mizuki Watase, Yuki Ueno, Naomi Yoshimura & Daiki Shimomura

5. No DQ Match: MAO Vs Jiro Kuroshio
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

Chris Brookes is calling Konosuke Takeshita a boring wrestler. He even felt a little disappointed when he watched Takeshita win the KO-D Openweight Title in the main event yesterday. Takeshita in response calls Brookes the UK’s best wrestler, but then called himself the world’s best wrestler. Before this match takes places, Takeshita will be wrestling in Hindmarsh, Australia for Sub-Zero Pro this Friday. His goal is to win the title there and collect championships from around the world until the Olympics begin.

Akito has nominated Jiro Kuroshio as the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. However Kuroshio is already booked on this show so there is no date decided yet for the title match. Akito would like the match to take place on 3rd August at Beer Garden week.

Sanshiro Takagi wants revenge on Yumehito Imanari for revealing his phone number during yesterday’s Weapon Rumble. Takagi was still getting phone calls in the middle of the night. Imanari said the prank is opening up new opportunities for DDT because every company now knows where to call Takagi.

Makoto Oishi is being moved to the 3 Way Tag match since he has partnered up with Yukio Naya before. He is being replaced by Saki Akai in the product placement match.

DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2019 ~JULY~”, 27/07/2019
Yokohama Radiant Hall

1. Akito Marunage Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Yuki Ueno

That is not a mistake. Akito wants Yuki Ueno to be wrestling on both teams. Akito is not in his own Marunage match because he thinks his only responsibility is to produce it. Ueno regularly teams with Naomi Yoshimura but also regularly trains with Takeshita. Oh, there is also the fact that Yoshimura and Takeshita don’t get along. This is a good three way relationship for Akito to experiment which is why he made this match.

Mike Bailey and Shunsuke Sayama will be on the show.

She is not under contract to Sendai Girls but participates in their shows regularly enough to consider the roster her family. She wants Akito to fight her the same way he was going to fight Iwata.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “LAST DANCE IS FOR ME 2019”, 17/07/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Great Conflict That Is Not Over Yet! Momota Family Vs Naoshi Sano: Chikara Vs Naoshi Sano
2. Ganpro Vs P.P.P. Full Battle: Keisuke Ishii Vs Mitomi Masayuki
3. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles – 20th Champions Decision Match: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol Vs Guts Ishijima, Masked Mystery & Shota
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.

5. Grasp The Best WONDERFUL LIFE! Iwasaki’s Greatest! – Southside Wrestling World Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Beast Bomber (16:41)
*V6 for Shigehiro Irie.

Shigehiro Irie’s tour of Japan with the Southside Wrestling World Title has lead to a string of defences in a short period of time. The sixth and latest defence was against Kouki Iwasaki at Ganbare☆Wrestling. Irie said that he will be going back to Europe with the title but he hopes to wrestle Iwasaki again. However Ken Ohka entered the ring and demanded a shot at the title on 17th July. Irie said he won’t be in Japan that day. Ohka then asked for a match in August. Irie couldn’t commit so Ohka then told Irie to challenge him the next time he comes back to Japan. Irie then suddenly knocked out Ohka with the Beast Bomber.

The combined powers of the GPW alliance succeeded in beating Real GUTS Army in a violent clash. Yumehito Imanari came out wearing a leather jacket similar to Jon Moxley’s “MOX” jacket but with “SEX” on the back instead. Ohka was busted open but with the help of Imanari & Miss Mongol, was able to pin Shota with the Thunder Fire Power Bomb. After the match Ohka demanded Guts Ishijima to bring back the retired GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles that used to be defended in Guts World until its closure. Ohka explained that life is a fight with guts. If GUTS do not want to be in a title match then they have no guts! Ishijima accepted the demand and will bring back the titles on 17th July.

Hiroshi Yamato challenged Shuichiro Katsumura for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Yamato said he has now wrestled in over 50 different wrestling promotions and if he becomes the Independent Jr. Champion he can then raise the belt’s prestige and also the wrestling scene at large by defending it in various different promotions.

Champ Phoenix made the mistake of taking Choun-Shiryu lightly, treating him as an easy opponent and leaving his guard open so Shiryu could pin him with La Magistral Cradle. Shiryu told Phoenix that he’s been living in Japan for 15 years so he should have been treated with respect.

The rookie Shuhei Washida is showing more aggression in his matches. He refused to shake Mitomi Masayuki’s hand before their match and even had to be held back by the referee at one point. However Masayuki took over and used a modified Camel Clutch called the Baby Clutch to make Washida submit.

Masayuki announced before the show that he is forming his own promotion called P.P.P. Tokyo. He said he learned to work hard in Ganpro and will use that spirit to make this new project succeed. P.P.P. will have a business relationship with Ganpro. The first sign of this is Ganpro hosting a match at the debut P.P.P. show in Shinjuku FACE on 30th September.
