Dai Suzuki Injured, DAMNATION Mystery, Takeshita Bodybuilding, Sasaki Sends Assassin To Ohka

October 18, 2017

An update about Dai Suzuki was posted on the DDT website two days ago. The injury he suffered at “DNA 37” turned out to be a partially fractured left knee. He will be out of action with no prediction of a return date yet.

DDT “TOYKO RAMEN SHOW 2017”, 26/10/2017
Tokyo Komazawa Olympic Park

1. Tokyo Joshi Pro Offer Match: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima Vs Nodoka-oneesan & Azusa Takigawa
2. DDT Pro Wrestling Vs Ganbare☆Wrestling: Danshoku Dino & Gota Ihashi Vs Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari

DDT and Ebisuko Tavern are coming back to the Tokyo Ramen Show for their annual outdoor wrestling match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #6”, 29/10/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Marika Kobashi Vs Maho Kurone
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki Vs Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku
3. Syoko Nakajima Vs Nonoko
4. Saki-sama Vs Nodoka-oneesan
5. Reika Saiki, Miyu Yamashita & Azusa Takigawa Vs Rika Tatsumi, Yuka Sakazaki & Yuu

Some new directions are being taken among the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster after the last show. Saki-sama is now on her own after her maid Martha found her parents and left to be with them. Nonoko & Azusa Takigawa have split up and are going their separate ways to both become stronger. Whoever gets the winning fall in the main event will probably declare themselves the No. 1 Contender for the TOKYO Princess Title. Plus now we have the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles so the existing teams will be climbing for a shot at the belts too.

DDT “SHIN-KIBA, I CAME BACK!”, 02/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Diego Vs DAMNATION
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi

The vacant KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles are up for grabs. ALL OUT are in the match because they were supposed to get a title shot against Shuten-dōji until KUDO got injured. DAMNATION was chosen to be the other team but their line-up is being kept secret for now. The group currently has four members but some of them are pretty busy right now. Daisuke Sasaki has his hands full with championships and other people’s money. Shuji Ishikawa is currently wrestling in other promotions. There has been something building between DAMNATION and Nobuhiro Shimatani lately. The rookie was tricked into thinking he was joining the group during the Seijo Hall show earlier this month but it was just a mind game to beat him up. He has also been positioned as their ringside attendant for their matches. Could he become a new member?

Konosuke Takeshita entered the 58th Kanto Student Bodybuilding Championships this past weekend. He finished in 12th place and qualified for the 52nd All Japan Student Bodybuilding Championships happening later this year. However after discussing the event with his doctor, Takeshita decided to withdraw from the competition. The preparation for the Kanto event took a toll on his body and continuing on that path would also interfere with his pro wrestling schedule. So Takeshita will put his focus on wrestling from now on.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganjo Super Battle: Ami Kanda & HARUKAZE Vs Sumire Natsu & Saki
2. 3rd Generation Vs 3rd Generation ~I Am The Grandson Panda! I Do Not Need Two Pandas In The Pro Wrestling World~: Chikara Vs J-Soul Pandita III IV
3. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Shota
4. Ganbare The Tryout: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter Vs Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin
5. Meet The Assassin X From Daisuke Sasaki!: Ken Ohka Vs X

Ken Ohka wanted Daisuke Sasaki to come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling for another match so he could win his money back. However DDT has a show on the same day so even if Sasaki wanted to come over he won’t be able to. Instead, Sasaki has promised to send over a hired assassin to keep Ohka busy. It won’t be a DAMNATION wrestler because they will also be at the DDT show. Ohka accepts the challenge, thinking if he beats this mystery opponent it will make him the No. 1 Contender for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title.

More Ganbare gimmicks are being created to encourage sales of Ganbare The Great masks. Ganpuro staff pretty much said that Yukihiro Abe and Ultraman Robin are going to be Ganbare The Akihabara & Ganbare The Robin.

The appearance of Andre The Giant Panda in Big Japan has spurred Ganpuro to bring back J-Soul Pandita III IV. The creature has not wrestled in over a year.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “FAN APPRECIATION DAY ~KANSHA 2017~” Results

October 11, 2017

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “FAN APPRECIATION DAY ~KANSHA 2017~”, 11/10/2017
Tokyo Ichigaya Nankai Memorial Clinic
64 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganjo Super Fight In Ichigaya: Kaho Kobayashi defeated HARUKAZE with the 120% School Boy (4:49).
2. Who Is X??: Showtime Hart defeated Chinsuke Nakamura with a Sleeper Cutback (7:12).
3. Ganpuro Special Tag Match In Ichigaya: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Great pinned Imanari with the Fire Spear (8:53).
4. Special Bonus Track ~ Volunteer Ganbare☆Rumble: Daisuke Sasaki defeated Ken Ohka with the Cross Facelock (8:53).
Order Of Elimination: Chinsuke Nakamura, HARUKAZE, Shuichiro Katsumura, Ganbare The Great, Shota, Yumehito Imanari, Ken Ohka.

Ganbare☆Wrestling put together a small fan appreciation show inside the Ichigaya Nankai Memorial Clinic. Since the room is so small there was no wrestling ring. Instead some mats were placed down next to a wall with two big empty window frames in it. The main event was an open invitation Royal Rumble with eliminations occurring by pinfall, submission or being thrown out of the room through one of the window frames. As an added bonus, the winner of the match would get a portion of today’s revenue from the ticket sales as a prize. This led to Daisuke Sasaki crashing the show and winning the match after attacking Ken Ohka with a chair. Once again Sasaki was stealing money from Ohka.

Sasaki sat down next to the beaten Ohka and took out his stolen savings book. Sasaki said he went to the bank to withdraw all of Ohka’s money only to find out the account was empty! It turned out Ohka still had his bank card and the money was already taken out while Sasaki was too hungover to visit the bank. Sasaki knows Ohka’s PIN number so he demanded Ohka give him the card so he can go get the 710,000 yen. Ohka refused and demanded the return of his cash and savings book. Sasaki was confused. He thought Ohka already had his money. That’s when Yumehito Imanari confessed it was he who went to the bank to get the cash. He also knows Ohka’s PIN number so it was easy to withdraw from the account. Imanari also admitted the cash prize for today’s show was just a ruse to lure Sasaki to the show and deceive him. That’s not all. Imanari discovered Ohka often uses a Family Mart T-Point card to save money and worked out a way to triple Ohka’s savings if he can take everything back from Sasaki! Ohka promised to get his money back, triple it, build up Ganpro and also to change his PIN number.

Ganbare The Great had a silly request for the Special Tag Match. He wanted himself & Ganbare The Shooter to swap identities with Ohka & Imanari for the match. So we had Minoru Fujita & Shuichiro Katsumura wrestle as Ohka & Imanari respectively while Ohka & Imanari wore the Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter masks. Imanari decided to wrestle like a masked man and did Gran Naniwa’s Crab Walk on the window frame. Fujita pinned him with the Fire Spear. He continued to impersonate Ohka afterwards and said he will continue to say bad things every day, every week and every month. Ohka in character as Fujita promised to start paying his child support again. The two teams hugged each other and everyone had fun. Except for the referee Daisuke Kiso, he didn’t want anything to do with it.

Shota came out to the mat dressed in his normal clothing to announce he could not wrestle today because of an injury. He said his replacement was Showtime Hart. He then took off his clothes to reveal he was wearing pink and green wrestling gear underneath. This is his Showtime Hart gimmick. His mystery opponent turned out to be Chinsuke Nakamura. Hart demanded a “This Is Wrestling” chant while he had Chinsuke in a Cobra Twist. Chinsuke applied a Sleeper Hold but Hart fell back on top of him to get the three count.

Kaho Kobayashi took the time in her match to complain about the “Pro Wrestling Cannonball” movie that was made in 2014. She participated in the filming of the project but all of her appearances were cut from the movie save for a one second cameo somewhere. Ohka approached her after the match to apologise and offer her a spot in the Ganbare☆Rumble. She turned it down because she had to travel to Odate for another wrestling show taking place tomorrow.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SMILE YES SHINKIBA”, 03/11/2017

The only previous time Reika Saiki and Rika Tatsumi have wrestled in the ring together was at “JUDGEMENT 2017” in March. They were on the same team then. Tatsumi has a chance of becoming a double champion because she is also part of the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Title tournament final on 14th October. Tatsumi had never won a championship before in any sort of competition so she is motivated to win. Saiki learned in her first defence that a single mistake could cost her the championship so she is learning not to hesitate in her matches.


GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DON’T YOU SEE! 2017” Results

September 30, 2017

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DON’T YOU SEE! 2017”, 30/09/2017
Osaka Toshima Citizen Center
138 Fans

1. Fumihiko Uwai Produce Match: Kamui defeated Dai Suzuki with the Swanton Bomb (5:29).
2. Batsuichi-gun Vs Ganpuro-gun: Minoru Fujita & Shoichi Uchida defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Mizuki Watase when Fujita pinned Watase with a Modified Cradle (14:55).
3. No Protein 15,000 Calorie Intake Blow Up Double Sweet Tag Death Match: Shota & HARUKAZE defeated Yumehito Imanari & Sumire Natsu when Shota pinned Imanari with the Frog Splash (12:15).
4. Forgotten K ICE BREAK: Yasu Urano defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with a Cradle (11:30).
5. Special Single Match: Ken Ohka defeated MIYAWAKI with the Fire Spear (21:06).

Ken Ohka’s road to recovery since losing his money and his championship began with a victory over MIYAWAKI. Hs spoke about MIYAWAKI’s debut match that took place in Differ Ariake back in 2002 and how both have progressed over the last 15 years. Ohka then said how hard he works at making Ganbare☆Wrestling succeed while some other chubby men stay at home doing nothing. Both Ganbare The Great and Shoichi Uchida at ringside got mad when they heard this but Ohka told them to use that anger as motivation. Great told Ohka he’ll kill him then left.

The mess made by the Double Sweet Death Match made both Shinichiro Tominaga and Yasu Urano conscious over bits of food flying at the audience while they wrestled each other. So they tried to take it easy at first until the tension between them grew and grew.

The entire venue was filled with the smell of food after the Double Sweet Death Match. The teams of Yumehito Imanari & Sumire Natsu and Shota & HARUKAZE battled it out in a ring filled with snacks and candy. Long marshmallow bars were attached to the ropes like lighttubes and cracker pops were placed on the turnbuckles rigged to explode at a certain point. The ring was a mess by the end of the match. A bell rang again to warn everyone of something. Everyone continued fighting until the crackers all exploded, knocking everyone out.

Minoru Fujita & Shoichi Uchida spent their match finding different ways to misbehave. They both shook Shuichiro Katsumura & Mizuki Watase’s hands then refused to let go. They then complained about how hard it was for them to wrestle today whenever their opponents got the upper hand. It was only when some young fans in the audience started cheering “Batsuichi!” that they became motivated to wrestle. Fujita low blowed Watase and pinned him with a Wrist Clutch Small Package to more chants of “Batsuichi!”

Ganpuro were given a boost by the visit of wrestling promoter Fumihiko Uwai to their show. Uwai congratulated Ohka on bringing Ganpuro this far including a successful show in Korakuen Hall. He is looking forward to seeing what is next for the company. Uwai stuck around to do ring announcing for the Dai Suzuki Vs Kamui match.

Shunma Katsumata & MAO will be fighting for the GHC Jr. Heavy Tag Team Titles in NOAH on Sunday. So DDT is giving them a warm up match with Sanshiro Takagi & Kazuki Hirata, the DDT team that I presume most resemble the champions HAYATA & YO-HEY!

6. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii

The new World Jr. Champion will be having some title defences in DDT for as long as he holds the belt. Daisuke Sasaki’s first challenger is Shuichiro Katsumura from Ganbare☆Wrestling. Can Katsumura get revenge for Ohka and bring the belt back to Ganpuro?

Producer Danshoku Dino will be putting mystery people in the NωA’s corner. I’m unsure if their roles are meant to be ring seconds or lumberjacks.

6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) defeated “brother” YASSHI with the Fire Spear (20:45).
*V3 for Ken Ohka.

The Independent World Jr. Title still belongs to Ken Ohka after a hard fought victory against “brother” YASSHI. Ohka kicked out of YASSHI’s big moves like the Nice Jamaica and the Flying Big Head. Ohka hit back with a Headbutt and a short range Fire Spear for a nearfall. Ohka then finished YASSHI off with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster and another Fire Spear to win. Ohka gave an emotional speech to YASSHI after the match. Ohka didn’t know anything when they first met. He wasn’t physically strong or had any athletic achievements but he still wanted to be a pro wrestler. So he found the Dragon System, joined their wrestling school and met YASSHI for the first time. Ohka can’t say who was the bigger fool of the two when they went their seperate ways. Ohka had quit and returned to wrestling so many times over 17 years. Today in Shinjuku FACE he and YASSHI had a big match together. He is so happy he gets to wrestle his colleagues now. Ohka fell onto YASSHI and hugged him. YASSHI was crying too and he didn’t know why. He didn’t care about winning a championship today. He came here today to look for an answer and now he found it. He wanted to fight a confident and emotional wrestler who would put it all on the line with no regrets. Today’s match wasn’t for “brother” YASSHI, it was for Yasushi Tsujimoto. He said there is not a single wrestler like Ken Ohka in this industry. YASSHI pleaded with Ohka to continue wrestling and to do so with pride. With the silly emotional stuff out of the way, YASSHI snapped back to his regular self and told Ohka he made a jealous enemy today. When they meet again in this ring, YASSHI will kill him!

When YASSHI left ringside, Ohka went into his finishing speech but was suddenly interrupted by an unexpected visitor. It was Daisuke Sasaki and he was carrying the DDT Extreme Title! Sasaki thought Ohka was going to lose but he proved him wrong. Sasaki called it a great match that moved him and he hopes the 3 Way Match in DDT on 24th September will be just as good. He wanted to shake Ohka’s hand. It was a trap and Sasaki kicked Ohka below the belt! Sasaki mocked Ohka for falling for his trap. He doesn’t care about championships, he’s here to win the 660,000 yen that Ohka would have gambled had he lost his championship today. Ohka told Sasaki he has no need to gamble it now. His Independent World Jr. Title will be defended in the match as planned so he has no need to put his money on the line anymore. Sasaki silenced Ohka when he pulled something out of his pocket. It was Ohka’s savings book! Sasaki stole it backstage during the main event. Sasaki looked through it and discovered that Ohka now has 714,146 yen in his account. Ohka called for help and several Ganpuro wrestlers ran into the ring to grab the book. Sasaki fought all of them off. Ohka got up and Headbutted Sasaki. He went for the Fire Spear but Sasaki dodged it and Ohka speared himself into the turnbuckles. Sasaki fled the ring with Ohka’s savings book. Ohka’s money is gone but he will still defend his title in DDT on 24th September. Then he will defend it again against MIYAWAKI back in Ganbare☆Wrestling on 30th September.

The Awakening Power Bomb that Keisuke Ishii used to win his match is a Sit Down Thunder Fire Power Bomb. The match was also Shota’s return bout for Ganbare☆Wrestling. His first match back from injury happened the day before in Guts World. His partner for the match Yumehito Imanari apologised for taking the fall and letting him down.

Shuichiro Katsumura stopped Osamu Namiguchi with a Benadryller style High Kick to win by TKO. Although he was still dazed, Namiguchi grabbed a microphone and thanked Katsumura for not holding back against this dying semi-pro wrestler. However Namiguchi wasn’t satisfied by how he lost and now feels like the worst wrestler in Japan. He begged Katsumura to strike him right in the brain and finish him off. Katsumura said he didn’t understand what Namiguchi was saying. He noted that the match they just had was advertised as a Shinjuku bout. So they should have more matches against each other in places like Shin-Kiba and other cities. Namiguchi shouted with approval.

Nanaka Kawamura made quite an entrance for her debut wrestling match. She entered wearing a hockey mask, carrying a floral designed chainsaw and was accompanied by four other girls doing the same. Emi Sakura was announced as the “Youngest Active Idol Wrestler” during her introduction, which made her glare at the ring announcer. She also glared at Kawamura when she offered a respectful handshake at the start of the match. Sakura & Riho put Kawamura through the usual rookie’s welcome while HARUKAZE did what she could to aid her partner. Kawamura eventually submitted to Sakura’s Shukurimu but was praised by Ken Ohka after the match. Ohka urged Kawamura to continue and one day she will get her first victory. Ohka then praised Sakura for her entire career but accidentaly made her mad when he said she gave up the chance of marriage to do what she does. Sakura scolded Ohka for his words then turned to Kawamura. Sakura is happy to get new challenges and Kawamura should be too. Kawamura said it was her mother’s dream to become a pro wrestler and today she made it come true on her behalf. Kawamura wants Sakura to come back so they can have more matches together.

There was a special guest in attendance for today’s show. Katsuji Nagashima has worked behind the scenes for New Japan and World Japan. He spoke with several wrestlers in the ring throughout the show and asked for everyone to nickname him Wolf. He handed a book to Imanari and told him it was the same book he gave to Kensuke Sasaki when he convinced him to leave New Japan for World Japan. He said he made Sasaki betray Riki Choshu. Now he thinks Imanari should betray Sanshiro Takagi! At the end of the show he told Ohka he was surprised by what he saw. He felt like he watched pro wrestling for the first time again. He offered to lend Ohka 10,000 yen after he saw Sasaki steal his money. He then asked Ohka to call him Wolf again.
