118 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Wrestling Experiment Group GUYZ Vs Canadian Wrestling: Danny Duggan defeated Shinichiro Wakita with the Cruel Summer (7:40).
2. New And Old Masked Women Showdown!: Bambi defeated HARUKAZE with the Shining Wizard (6:26).
3. Dai Suzuki Ganbare☆Big Match: Chikara defeated Dai Suzuki with a Reverse Horizontal Chop (6:23).
4. There Is No Choice But To Do! There Is No Choice But To Die! Ganbare The Army Appears!: Ganbare The Great & Ganbare The Shooter defeated GENTARO & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shooter submitted Tominaga with the Rope Assisted Ninja Clutch (12:23).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs New York Head Hunters: KENSO, KAZMA SAKAMOTO & Hollywood GOTA defeated Ken Ohka, Yukihiro Abe & Yumehito Imanari when GOTA pinned Imanari with the Apollo 13 (10:52).

Well you know something, brother, Hollywood GOTA came out dressed exactly like you would expect, dude. He came out to “Real American” and ran wild on the Ganbare☆Wrestling team. Yumehito Imanari got a second wind when Bambi came out to keep an eye on the New York Head Hunters. But GOTA cut him down with a Lariat and pinned him with the Moonsault, which is now called Apollo 13. After the match GOTA said he is 100 times bigger than Hulk Hogan and all three Head Hunters will make it to the top of the Ganbare☆Climax. After they left, Ken Ohka said Hogan is 1,000 times cooler than GOTA. He motivated Imanari and Yukihiro Abe for the Ganbare☆Climax. They will be wrestling in matches every day and they will be strong in spirit because they are Japanese. He doesn’t want Ganpuro to lose to a group of “foreigners” like the New York Head Hunters. Imanari promised to watch all of the G1 CLIMAX tournaments to prepare himself.

Ganbare The Shooter thinks a lot like Ganbare The Great. Shooter cheated to win their tag match by throwing Shinichiro Tominaga into an exposed turnbuckle. Shooter then placed his feet on the ropes for leverage during the pin. Great scolded Shooter for how he won. Not because he cheated but because he didn’t put his feet on the ropes properly! Great and also GENTARO then showed Shooter how to hook the ropes right.

Dai Suzuki swears he is trying his best but after 4 years of wrestling he is running out of excuses for losing so much. His career is on the line in the DNA 4 Vs 1 Handicap Match on 4th July. He promises he will do his best and not retire!

HARUKAZE had no answer for Bambi’s wrestling ability. As much as she tried to counter her moves, the gap in experience was just too big to overcome. HARUKAZE’s next match will be against Saori Anou on 8th July.

The entrants for the three day Ganbare☆Climax tournament in August are Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari, Yukihiro Abe, Shinichiro Tominaga, Chikara, Shinichiro Wakita, KENSO, KAZMA SAKAMOTO, Hollywood GOTA, Shuichiro Katsumura, Takufumi Ito, Tanomusaku Toba, GENTARO, Ben McCoy, Dave Crist and Kendo Kashin. To everyone’s surprise, Kashin was in the building! He came to challenge Ohka to a 5 Vs 5 match between Ganpuro and NEW to take place at DDT’s Sumo Hall show on 20th August! Ohka told Kashin he has no power to make that match and he should talk to Sanshiro Takagi about it instead.

Shuichiro Katsumura was convinced by Ganbare The Great to team with him. Turns out he was also convinced to put on a mask and become Ganbare The Shooter for the occassion.

DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN TOKYO DOME” Results

June 1, 2017

DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN TOKYO DOME”, 01/06/2017
Tokyo Dome
0 Fans

No Fans Street Wrestling Match Throughout All Of Tokyo Dome: Minoru Suzuki defeated Sanshiro Takagi with the Gotch-Style Piledriver on Home Base (33:54).

After 20 years DDT has made it to the biggest stage of all in Japan. The Tokyo Dome. But this wasn’t your normal all day pro wrestling extravaganza, oh God no. The budget wouldn’t allow it. Instead DDT put together a single Falls Count Anywhere match with the entire Dome open up to them and not a single fan in attendance. Only cameramen, reporters, other wrestlers and staff members were allowed to attend the show. A special match under special circumstances was necessary for the event. The grudge settlement between Sanshiro Takagi and Minoru Suzuki was the perfect choice for the occasion.

Takagi entered the baseball field first and posed at each of the bases. Suzuki then appeared with his NEVER Openweight Title and appealed to the empty seats to clap along to his song. Before the match could begin, special guest Aja Kong sung the Japanese national anthem. Both Takagi and Suzuki began to argue during the performance and a frustrated Kong stepped in between them so she could finish singing.

When the match began Takagi yelled that he was going to get revenge on Suzuki for their last match at Budokan Hall five years ago. Suzuki trapped Takagi in an Armbar but had to break it when Takagi reached over and touched first base. Takagi then put Suzuki in a Half Crab but had to let go when Suzuki reached second base. When they both realised the bases would be treated like rope breaks in this match they decided to take the fight elsewhere.

Takagi and Suzuki fought up to the stands to the 2nd floor concourse. Super Sasadango Machine was there with his Macbook ready to give a PowerPoint presentation. He wanted to transmit the presentation to the big screens but couldn’t do so. Suzuki lifted Sasadango’s mask to see who it was underneath. He was shocked to see it was Muscle Sakai because he thought Sakai was retired. While this was going on, Takagi grabbed a fire extinguisher and sprayed it at Suzuki.

Suzuki chased Takagi up the stairs toward Gate 33 and caught up with him. Their Chop battle was interrupted by Gota Ihashi who slapped Suzuki from behind. When Suzuki finally acknowledged the weak chops on his back he turned around and kicked Ihashi down the stairs.

When the fight moved up to the 4th floor concourse, Suzuki attempted to throw Takagi over the balcony. He stopped when Saki Akai walked into view working as a beer girl. Suzuki asked for a beer but had no money on him. Suzuki became angry so Akai kicked him away with a Big Boot. Akai then kicked Takagi with a Big Boot too.

Ihashi tried to attack Suzuki again but was kicked down the stairs. Again.

Takagi was getting tired from going up and down stairways constantly. He was even more out of breath when Suzuki grabbed a photographer’s bib and used it to choke Takagi. They walked past Lady Beard who was on his own singing to whoever would listen. Takagi joined in for a duet of “Valentine Kiss”.

Suzuki grabbed Takagi and put him in a Cobra Twist. Nearby Ken Ohka was seen begging at staff to let him book a Ganbare☆Wrestling show at the Tokyo Dome for 50,000 yen. Suzuki grabbed the money off of Ohka and walked down to the 1st floor concourse.

Ohka chased after Suzuki and bumped into a janitor. The janitor turned out to be Jun Kasai! He grabbed Ohka, threw him onto a table, climbed a ladder and hit the Pearl Harbour Splash on Ohka through the table.

A sad, lonely, defeated Ihashi was sitting on a nearby staircase when Suzuki appeared and kicked him down the stairs one more time. Suzuki then stepped on him while walking through a hallway. Suzuki tried to give Takagi the Gotch-Style Piledriver but Takagi escaped. The two then encountered a Muay Thai fighter warming up in the hallway. Takagi tried to make Suzuki fight him because Suzuki once fought Maurice Smith in the Tokyo Dome. Suzuki instead convinced Takagi to spar with the fighter then ran off when Takagi got pummelled.

 

Suzuki’s escape was cut off when Danshoku Dino and his friends approached him wanting to shake his hand. They left Suzuki alone when they saw Rocky Kawamura nearby and surrounded him with unwanted affection instead.

Some unexpected star power showed up when Takagi and Suzuki came across Hiroshi Tanabota and Chinsuke Nakamura wrestling each other. The Wrestle Kingdom main event stopped when Tanabota and Chinsuke focused their attention to Takagi and Suzuki but they swept them aside with ease.

Next stop on the tour was the bullpen where Keisuke Ishii and Ryota Nakatsu were busy practicing their pitches. To the surprise of everyone they were being coached by Genichiro Tenryu! When practice was over Tenryu gave Ishii, Nakatsu and Suzuki fist bumps but then gave Takagi a Rock Punch. Suzuki then pitched baseballs at Takagi until he ran away.

Takagi ran back to the baseball field and was stopped by wonderful sight in the distance. Meiko Satomura was standing on the pitcher’s mound in her full costume ready to play ball! The DDT roster were sitting in the team bench cheering Takagi on as he approached the plate with a bat. Satomura’s pitches were terrible but Takagi still swung and got strikes.

Tenryu had enough and ordered Suzuki to take Takagi’s place at bat. Satomura stood closer to Suzuki and almost struck him with a pitch. That resulted in the locker room emptying out to the field for a brawl! Tenryu got on the microphone and shouted “Stop it, you bastards! Fighting outside is not allowed!” But he couldn’t be heard over the chaos.

The brawling finally calmed down and the match was back to Takagi Vs Suzuki. They’ve been fighting for over 30 minutes and were back on the home base. Suzuki countered the Spicolli Driver into a Sleeper Hold but Takagi escaped with a Jawbreaker. Takagi then sprinted down past third base towards the wall at the end of the field. He charged up and ran towards Suzuki ready to deliver a devastating Lariat. But Suzuki ducked it and put Takagi back in the Sleeper Hold. He then hit the Gotch-Style Piledriver right next to the home base. The referee counted the pin, paused after two to make sure Takagi’s hand wasn’t touching home base, then counted three to declare Takagi out and Suzuki the winner.

Suzuki celebrated and was ready to leave when Takagi got on the microphone and called for his attention. Suzuki beat Takagi in the Budokan five years ago and today he beat him in the Tokyo Dome. He is no longer Takagi’s enemy. In fact there is nothing left for Takagi to do but retire. He thanked Suzuki for being his last opponent and the two stood together for the 10 bell salute. On the 7th bell Takagi called Suzuki a sucker and gave him a Stone Cold Stunner. He isn’t retiring, not when he still has the chance to beat Suzuki!

In fact, Takagi announced his next crazy idea for Street Wrestling. DDT is going to have a Falls Count Anywhere match on an uninhabited island! Suzuki accepted the challenge. Takagi tried to close out the show with his catchphrase but Suzuki stopped him with a Lariat. That led to another bench clearing brawl on the field with Takagi screaming “Immortal!” over and over as the broadcast came to an end.

6. When It Is A Match! Show Me Ganbare Soul!: Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO defeated Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi when SAKAMOTO pinned Ohka after a Moonsault from Ihashi (12:03).

Ken Ohka has been betrayed by Gota Ihashi! Just when it looked like Ohka had the main event won, Ihashi stopped the count and attacked him! Ihashi hit the Moonsault on Ohka and allowed KAZMA SAKAMOTO to get the three count. After the match Kenso Ohka announced that Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling is over after today. Taking its place is a gathering of “New Yorkers” from all over the world. They are now the New York Head Hunters and their newest member is Hollywood Gota! Ken Ohka was devastated that a lifelong friend betrayed him. He swore to protect Ganbare☆Wrestling from the Head Hunters and save Ihashi from this dark path.

Shuichiro Katsumura accidentally unmasked Ganbare The Great during a Sleeper Hold. The surprise allowed the exposed Ganbare to roll Katsumura into the Ganbare☆Clutch for the three count. Katsumura knew Ganbare is Minoru Fujita and hated that he lost to him this way. He challenged him to more matches but Ganbare turned him down. Ganbare wants to team with Katsumura instead. The offer was accepted and they will team together on 24th June.

Tanomusaku Toba & Chikara combined their finishers to win their tag match. Chikara hit Yumehito Imanari with the Saber Chop then Toba hit Imanari with the Backblow. The move combination is now called the Master And Padawan.

The debut of HARUKAZE ended in a defeat to Kaori Yoneyama. HARUKAZE hit the Fire Spear for a nearfall but her opponent was just to strong for her. Ohka motivated her after the match by saying it is okay to lose many matches as long as you never forget how frustrating that can be. HARUKAZE’s next match is against Bambi.

Ken Ohka will next defend his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title in Ganpuro on 8th July. His opponent is… oh for fuck sake it’s Naoshi Sano.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DANCE POPOCHOLINE 2017”, 07/05/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
117 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yumehito Vs “X”: Gota Ihashi defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Moonsault (6:07).
2. Decisive Battle! Osaka’s Tiger Vs Chiba’s Queen: Bambi defeated Atsushi Maruyama with an Automatic Falling Moonsault (8:59).

4. Great COSMOS 2017: Ganbare The Great & Takafumi Ito defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Yukihiro Abe when Ito pinned Abe with a German Suplex (16:46).
5. GANPRO SUPERSTAR WAR!!: Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO defeated Ken Ohka & Shinichiro Tominaga when SAKAMOTO pinned Tominaga with the Knee Kick (11:37).

In the main event Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling were victorious again over the usual Ganbare☆Wrestling. They weren’t satisfied with the result alone so they continued to attack after the match. Gota Ihashi came to the rescue and ran them off. Ihashi said he is tired of Shin Ganpuro’s dirty tactics and declared war on them! Ken Ohka asked him to team up against Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 31st May.

Shuichiro Katsumura is absolutely determined to beat Takafumi Ito. No matter how many times he loses to him, no matter how tired the audience is of seeing them fight, he will not quit until he beats him. Katsumura then demanded a singles match on 31st May. Ganbare The Great thought the challenge was aimed at him so he accepted it. Both Katsumura and Ito were confused but Ganbare rallied the fans behind him to get the match. Katsumura didn’t want to give in but had to when Ganbare began to lie down and act like he was going to die. That made Katsumura change his mind and accept the match.

Atsushi Maruyama armed himself with cardboard to battle Bambi and her whip. He convinced Daisuke Kiso to stop Bambi from using her whip while he got to Power Bomb her onto the cardboard. He then put Bambi in the Tree Of Woe position against the corner. Kiso stepped in again, this time to confront Maruyama for using cardboard as a foreign object. Kiso wound up reversing an Irish Whip and threw Maruyama into Bambi. Maruyama fell down and Bambi collapsed on top of him for the pinfall.

Yumehito Imanari is bad at putting clues together. He came to the conclusion that his opponent would be Yuna Manase from Tokyo Joshi Pro. It wasn’t her. Instead he got Gota Ihashi! Imanari wanted someone chubby but not that chubby! Still, Imanari got some kicks out of the match and when he grabbed Ihashi’s abdomen he exclaimed it felt just like Bambi’s. Ihashi won the match and was approached by Shin Ganpuro. They tempted him with dreams of following in Shinsuke Nakamura’s footsteps and becoming the next big global Japanese star. Ihashi laughed them off and asked if either of them were wrestling in England like he was a few months ago, or like Nakamura is right now. They couldn’t answer him so Ihashi rejected their offer to join Shin Ganpuro.

The first ever Ganbare☆Climax will take place in Itabashi Green Hall on 11th and 12th August and the final will be in Tokyo KFC Hall on 13th August.


DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN FITNESS SHOP HARAJUKU” Results

April 30, 2017

DDT “STREET WRESTLING IN FITNESS SHOP HARAJUKU”, 30/04/2017
Tokyo Fitness Shop Harajuku
50 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito defeated HARASHIMA & Soma Takao, Sanshiro Takagi & Mizuki Watase and Shigehiro Irie Vs Gota Ihashi when Takeshita pinned Watase with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of weight plates (30:15).

To celebrate the opening of a new Fitness Shop in the Harajuku branch of Gold’s Gym, DDT was invited to set up a Falls Count Anywhere match in the building. The spectators were warned not to touch the shop goods or the working equipment for their own safety. “I will not run, I will not push, I will not get hurt” was the advice given to them for the match. Four chairs were laid out in the main storefront to act as the squared circle but obviously didn’t mean anything after the opening minutes. When the match began to spread out, Mizuki Watase pressed HARASHIMA into a sharp part of one of the exercise machines. Elsewhere Gota Ihashi tried to pin Konosuke Takeshita with Shigehiro Irie standing on top of him. Akito stopped them but Irie fought back with a Wonder Core.

Ihashi found boxing gloves and wore them to fight Sanshiro Takagi. His punches were countered by Takagi’s Low Kicks. They then found a climbing wall and Takagi challenged HARASHIMA to try it out. HARASHIMA successfully climbed up the device. Takagi couldn’t do the same. A daisy chain of Neck Locks was formed until HARASHIMA broke it by kicking Irie. Takagi dragged Watase over to a treadmill and made him sprint on it. Takeshita couldn’t stop laughing at this so Takagi grabbed him and told everyone to move the match outside.

It turned out Takeshita was still full of energy while everyone else began to feel tired. The 60 minute match from Saturday was enough preparation for him to take part in long matches. Watase climbed a drinks machine. He dove off of it onto Akito and Soma Takao below. Ihashi was made to do some benchpresses. Akito put Irie in the Scorpion Lock. Takeshita brought Watase over to the dumbbell area and tried to Brainbuster him. Watase blocked it until he was hit with a Big Boot to the face. Takeshita then gave Watase a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto a stack of 3 weight plates! That was enough for the three count. The shop manager called the event a surprising success and thinks they should do it again sometime.

259 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Brand Anticipated Scramble Bunkhouse Hardcore 6 Way Match: Sanshiro Takagi defeated Toru Owashi, SAGAT, Nonoko, Yumehito Imanari and Nobuhiro Shimatani when Takagi pinned Shimatani with a Diving Body Press from the Ladder onto the Zexy Magazine through the Table (11:16).
2. Actwres girl’Z Offer Match ~A Bite Of A Cool Sensation The Sweep! Actress Girls Incoming!!~: Saori Anou defeated Tam Nakano with a Fisherman Suplex (6:36).
3. YaroZ Annual Round Boxing Handicap Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki ended in a No Contest (R4 2:19).
4. Last Gun Standing Match: Danshoku Dino defeated Takayuki Ueki with the Electrical Parade (11:33).
5. Special Single Match: Colt Cabana defeated Antonio Honda with the Superman Dive (13:31).
6. YaroZ Army Vs Sexy Army Full Challenge: Kazusada Higuchi, Ryuichi Sekine & Ken Ohka defeated Makoto Oishi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Mineo Fujita when Sekine pinned Oishi with the Kamikaze (7:08).

The Sexy Army did not come to the show to mess around although they did wear bath towels around their waists for the entire show. With Makoto Oishi giving the orders, he and his boys kidnapped guest idol Tsukasa Wachi and had her tied to the ring post with a rope during the main event. The YaroZ Army fought them to save her with Ryuichi Sekine pinning Oishi after a Lariat from Kazusada Higuchi, the Spear from Ken Ohka and a Kamikaze from Sekine. Oishi grovelled for forgiveness after the match but it was a ruse for the Sexy Army to ambush YaroZ. The fighting was stopped by the Actwres girl’Z wrestlers who rescued Wachi and forced the Sexy Army to flee. Sekine invited all of the girls to spend the rest of Valentine’s Day with YaroZ but they each came up with excuses to turn them down.

Colt Cabana and Antonio Honda both took their time wrestling each other. Whenever the action heated up one of them would ask the other to wait a second so they could catch their breath. When the match became more active, Yukinori Matsui ended up getting knocked out after a Bionic Elbow duel. Honda had Cabana beat with the Diving Elbow Drop but Matsui wasn’t there to count the pin. By the time Matsui recovered, Cabana leapt on top of Honda with the Superman Dive for the three count. Honda has no hard feelings over the result. He and Cabana instead bonded over their love of the Bionic Elbow.

The goal of the Last Gun Standing match was for your opponent to get an erection. Danshoku Dino claimed before the match that he is not attracted to Takayuki Ueki so he had the advantage. However none of his usual moves could excite Ueki in that manner. It turned out Ueki did have a gun in his pants and he wasn’t happy to see Dino. He held up Dino at gunpoint with the demand that he could get a date with Tsukasa Wachi. Dino knocked him off the ropes to disarm him and after an exchange of finishers both men were down and out. Wachi came out wearing her bikini and began to cheer for Ueki. That caused Ueki to stand up in more ways than one resulting in him losing the match.

Wachi was all over this show. She was originally brought in to be the ring girl for the annual YaroZ boxing match but did her job fully clothed. She took more clothing after every round, attracting more and more men to ringside to watch. The only men not enjoying this were the boxers. Yukio Sakaguchi was only focused on winning while Gota Ihashi & Dai Suzuki were getting slaughtered as a result. Even worse for Ihashi & Suzuki, everyone else did whatever they could to avoid ending the fight so Wachi could continue stripping. Yukinori Matsui for example pretended to faint when he was about to finish a 10 count. The situation got so bad that Suzuki punched the cameraman for getting in the way in order to get a better view of Wachi. The other referee Yuya Okada had enough and called for the match to end, saying it’s what Kyohei Wada would have done. Matsui got so mad that he attacked Okada. The place was about to descend into chaos when Wachi told everyone to stop. She then stripped down to a blue bikini, solving everyone’s problems.

Nobuhiro Shimatani complained about having to wrestle on Valentine’s Day. He claimed he had other more important things to do. The others then accused him of being a virgin. Shimatani grabbed Nonoko’s issue of Zexy Magazine and threatened to destroy it. But he was stopped by Sanshiro Takagi who placed him on a table. Takagi then placed the magazine on top of him, climbed a ladder and Splashed Shimatani through the table to win. After the match Takagi told him he shouldn’t be ashamed of being a 20 year old virgin because that means he is still pure. SAGAT then admitted that he too is a virgin. Shimatani hugged him with joy.
