BASARA Invades Dove Pro

August 15, 2017

I was only able to find partial results of the BASARA related matches from the DDT website.

DOVE PRO “CLASH! DOVE X BASARA OSAKA GAMES”, 10/08/2017
Osaka Theater Sekaikan
??? Fans

1. 3 WAY THRASH: SAGAT & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated HAYATA & Taniyuki Ota and Gunso & Kabuki Kid when SAGAT pinned Kid with the Gore Grind (?:??).
2. Hide Kubota & Yasu Kubota Vs Yuki Aoki & Kouhei Kinoshita (?:??).
3. 3 WAY THRASH: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Shoichi Uchida and Rey Paloma when Hiroshi pinned Paloma with a Cradle (?:??).
4. DOVE Tag Team Titles: YO-HEY & Kenshin Chikano (c) defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Chikano pinned Nakatsu with the Buzzsaw Kick (?:??).
*V3 for The Gingin BOYS.
5. Isami Kodaka defeated “brother” YASSHI with the European Clutch (?:??).

BASARA was invited over to Dove Pro’s house for a weekend series of inter-promotional matches. Day 1 was held in Osaka and BASARA almost dominated the challenge by winning 3 of the 4 inter-promotional matches. Isami Kodaka beat “brother” YASSHI but he was saved from defeat when the referee was knocked down during the match, missing a vital pinfall by YASSHI. Kodaka countered YASSHI’s Locomotion Suplex into the European Clutch to steal the win.

Cavalry were the only losers on team BASARA. They failed to win the DOVE Tag Team Titles from The Gingin BOYS and they blamed the BOYS’ female fans over it.

Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Rey Paloma ignored Shoichi Uchida for most of the 3 Way Match. They were more focused on wrestling each other until Hiroshi convinced Paloma to sing with him. Hiroshi then rolled Paloma into a pin as they were singing to get the three count.

The 3 Way Tag match was fought under Hardcore Rules and it got violent. SAGAT was unstoppable with the chairs while Takumi Tsukamoto used a ladder to great effect. Their opponents were no match for them and SAGAT got the pin on Kabuki Kid to win. Kid’s partner Gunso had a stare down with SAGAT after the match.

DOVE PRO “CLASH! DOVE X BASARA HIROSHIMA GAMES”, 11/08/2017
Hiroshima Marina Hop
??? Fans

1. Shoichi Uchida & Sauser Vs Takeshi Okada & Van Veer Negro (?:??).
2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Rey Paloma with a Cross Armbreaker (?:??).
3. Yuki Aoki & Kouhei Kinoshita Vs HAYATA & YO-HEY (?:??).
4. Kenshin Chikano defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Buzzsaw Kick (?:??).
5. Elimination 8-Man Tag Match: “brother” YASSHI, Naoki Tanizaki, Kabuki Kid & Gunso defeated Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto, Ryuichi Sekine & SAGAT (?:??).

The next day’s show took place in Dove Pro’s home location in Hiroshima. It was highlighted by a crazy 4 Vs 4 Elimination brawl between Dove Pro and BASARA. Kodaka was busted open early after chairshots and a collision with the ring post. He later scored the first elimination over Naoki Tanizaki. Kabuki Kid got rid of Tsukamoto but was then eliminated by Ryuichi Sekine. YASSHI evened the sides by escaping Sekine’s Let’s Combine and pinning him with La Magistral. YASSHI and Kodaka eliminated each other when a tackled took both of them over the top rope and out of the ring. This left SAGAT and Gunso as the last members of each team. Gunso came out on top with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and the Diving Guillotine Drop.

Chikano pinned Nakatsu with the Buzzsaw Kick for the second show in a row.

Hiroshi and Paloma continued to sing at each other duiring their second match. Hiroshi trapped him in a Cross Armbreaker to win but continued to attack him after the match. Paloma fought him off and hit the Paloma Bomber to make Hiroshi flee out of the ring.

Next up, Dove Pro will be back in BASARA for another inter-promotional challenge series on 23rd & 24th August.


BASARA “VAJRA 41 ~OSAKA BEER GARDEN WRESTLING 2017~” Results

July 29, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 41 ~OSAKA BEER GARDEN WRESTLING 2017~”, 29/07/2017
Osaka Okinawa Hall
182 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takato Nakano with the Let’s Combine (7:00).
2. Best Stretchman V3 In Danger! Approach Battle Socrates Fear: Yasu Urano defeated Best Stretchman V3 with a Backslide Pin (10:00).
3. Real Style Co., Ltd. Presents Special Tag Match: Isami Kodaka & Gouma Ryu defeated Masamune & Kuishinbo Kamen when Ryu pinned Kamen with the Super Long Dwelling Moonsault (9:13).
4. Gunso & Kabuki Kid defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & SAGAT when Gunso pinned SAGAT with the Diving Guillotine Drop On A Chair (13:12).
5. Keihan Wrestling Dispute 2017: Naoki Tanizaki defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Implant (12:35).
6. Trans-Am ★ Family Vs IRON PRIEST: FUMA, HUB & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Abe when Kubo pinned Abe with the Death Metal Roll (14:58).

Yusuke Kubo continues to lead IRON PRIEST to victory over the Trans-Am ★ Family. This time his Death Metal Roll put Trans-Am ★ Abe down for the count. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was furious with Abe over the result and fired him from the team after the match. This is the second time Abe has been fired from the Family. FUMA told everyone that “KUBO-METAL” will be the next person to challenge Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for the Union MAX Title. When BASARA returns to Osaka, “KUBO-METAL” will be the champion! Keep on rockin’!

Naoki Tanizaki continued to attack Ryota Nakatsu after their match until Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine came to the rescue. Gunso & Kabuki Kid then ran in to back up Tanizaki. Kodaka said that BASARA lost their matches to Dove Pro today but BASARA will get their chance at revenge next month. Today was a declaration of war! Kodaka pointed out he is affiliated with Dragon Gate but he sides with Dove Pro in this feud.

Chairs and a ladder were used a lot in the match between Tsukasaga-gun and Dove Pro. The end came when Gunso slammed Takumi Tsukamoto onto the ladder. Kabuki Kid then placed a chair on SAGAT and Gunso hit the Guillotine Drop to win the match. There will be more BASARA Vs Dove Pro matches down the line and Tsukamoto is looking forward to them. He is a death match wrestler more than a hardcore wrestler. He’s been in more dangerous matches than what Dove Pro are used to. Kabuki Kid describes himself & Gunso as Hardcore Craftsmen. They’re not scared of Tsukamoto & SAGAT.

Kuishinbo Kamen placed Gouma Ryu upside down against the turnbuckles in the Tree Of Woe position. Kamen then got knocked down and Ryu fell on top of him for the three count. Calling it a Moonsault is being very generous.


BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~” Results

April 29, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

8. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Perfect Five (16:11).
*V1 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.

The 2nd half of today’s Korakuen Hall doubleshot was held by BASARA for their second ever visit to the building. The Trans-Am ★ Family were dominant with wins in both of their big matches. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi successfully defended the Union MAX Title against Ryota Nakatsu in the main event. Ryuichi yelled “C’mon Young Boy!” at Nakatsu as they wrestled but Nakatsu reversed the roles when he hulked up against the champion’s offence late in the match. Sadly for Nakatsu he was knocked loopy with the Luxurious Lariat and Ryuichi put him away with the Perfect Five. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi congratulated Ryuichi after the match and they both spoke in English about the upcoming Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament.

A table, ladder and a pile of chairs were placed in the ring and dub music played over the sound system for the Hardcore Tag Match. After several failed attempts SAGAT finally earned a win over Gunso although he had to pin Shoichi Uchida to do it. Takumi Tsukamoto hit Uchida with the O’Cannon Bomb after Uchida missed a Splash from the top of the ladder. Tsukamoto then held Gunso back while SAGAT pinned Uchida with the Gore Grind.

Gunso wasn’t shaken by his team’s loss. He describes hardcore wrestling like it was a sushi shop and Dove Pro Wrestling’s “sushi” is the best! He wants more BASARA Vs Dove Pro Wrestling matches but wants to hear what BASARA’s “sushi store manager” Isami Kodaka has to say. Kodaka played along with Gunso’s metaphors and called BASARA a family restaurant. Gunso challenged Kodaka to send BASARA wrestlers over to Dove Pro. Kodaka couldn’t agree to it but made a deal with Gunso. BASARA will be holding two shows at Shin-Kiba 1st RING in August, one on the 23rd and one on the 24th. They are offering to book Dove Pro wrestlers to take part in the shows. Gunso accepted and said he will bring the entire roster. Kodaka told him he can’t do that. Gunso must choose who to bring because BASARA can’t afford to pay the travelling expenses for an entire outside roster. Kodaka then warned that he is preparing his best dish for the Dove Pro wrestlers the show. He is preparing SAGAT!

Kodaka went into his match with Yuji Okabayashi knowing that it would be almost impossible to beat him. That turned out to be right but hey at least he tried. Kodaka had a few tricks up his sleeve like trying to goad Okabayashi into throwing Chops that were easy to dodge. He also targeted his leg and was able to Suplex him onto the floor while they were outside the ring. Tatsuhiko Yoshino even begged for Okabayashi to get counted out so it wouldn’t ruin Kodaka’s special day in Korakuen. Okabayashi did not oblige and when he got his hands on Kodaka he didn’t waste his opportunities. Kodaka had some chances here and there like moving away from the Golem Splash and getting a two count with La Magistral Cradle. But Okabayashi caught him with a Power Bomb and lifted him back up into the Argentine Backbreaker for the submission victory. Okabayashi said that power is everything. It doesn’t matter what skill and tricks Kodaka has, Okabayashi will always bounce back with power!

Dick Togo out-wrestled Yusuke Kubo in a match between teacher and student. Togo was one step ahead most of the time and countered Kubo’s Goro Suplex into the Pedigree. Kubo blocked the move but Togo manoeuvred him into a Gedo Clutch for the match winning pinfall. Kubo bowed to Togo after the match. In a backstage interview, Kubo said he was 17 years old when he first met Togo. He is 30 now. He went into this match thinking it was the beginning of the end for him but Togo proved that there is a lot left for him to do.

A true patriotic battle took place as the Trans-Am ★ Family fought Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe. A team could only win when one of their wrestlers used their country’s flag to pin an opponent for the three count. Trans-Am ★ Tanaka was seen for the first time yet wasn’t told about the rules so he went straight for the Minoru Special on Abe. The fans rallied more behind the Trans-Am ★ Family and gave “USA!” chants although they were followed by some “Nippon!” chants afterwards. The family got rid of Masamune & Abe so were able to focus their efforts on Sekine. He couldn’t withstand the numbers game and Hiroshi gave him with a Leg Drop with the Stars And Stripes on top of him to win the match.

The Gingin Boys made quite an entrance, hugging fans of all gender and getting them to place money in their tights and mouths. They scored a big win over IRON PRIEST by isolating FUMA from Hagane. At first FUMA had things in control and hit his big moves on YO-HEY. But a successful dodge led FUMA into a High Kick from Kenshin Chikano. YO-HEY then upped the pressure on FUMA until he pinned him with the Bamboo Dragon Fly, a multiple spinning splash from the top rope.

Court was in session as Best Stretchman V3 was put on trial by Tatsuhiko Yoshino. The two had to be held apart by Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when they were all in the ring. Stretchman was accused of defamation when he called Yoshino a monster at the last BASARA show in Shin-Kiba. Ryu defended Stretchman by claiming his words were never meant to be taken under offence. He explained that Yoshino was an orthodox wrestler in Guts World but developed into a monster when he moved up to Big Japan. Yoshino disagreed and felt it was still meant to be an insult. Things took a turn when Maruyama pointed out that Ryu’s mother was in the audience. Ryu then took out one of his handwritten notes and read it to everyone. He said that he studied hard to become a lawyer so it would please his mother. But the work he did was so hard that he became a pro wrestler to bring him some relief. He hid this from his mother for so long that it became unbearable and he finally wanted her to learn the truth! Everyone was touched by this except for Yoshino. He attacked Ryu and told Maruyama to join in. Stretchman came to the rescue and fought them off. Ryu shook his hand as thanks but Stretchman then gave him the Best Stretch Bomb for the three count. Stretchman was declared Not Guilty by the judge.

Kodaka welcomed BASARA’s newest wrestler Takato Nakano by being his opponent for his debut match. Nakano wore a purple “Buddha-style” costume and was put through his paces by the veteran Kodaka. He was able to catch Kodaka with a Christo and a Wheelbarrow Facecrusher but otherwise it was all Kodaka in this match. Nakano tapped out to the Half Crab, as is tradition for debut matches in Japan. Kodaka encouraged Nakano to get back to his feet on his own after the match.

BASARA “VAJRA 33 ~RICH IN SPRING AND FALL~”, 19/04/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
184 Fans

1. Episode 3 – “Best Stretchman V3 Angry Special Training”: Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino & Fuminori Abe when Stretchman pinned Abe with the Best Stretch Bomb (8:42).
2. Great Reversal Pro Wrestling Preliminary Preparation For Trial: Gouma Ryu defeated Atsushi Maruyama with an Inverted Reverse Splash (5:44).
3. IRON PRIEST Vs B FAULTLESS JUNKY’s: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Jaki Numazawa & Masashi Takeda when Kubo pinned Tsukamoto with the Death Metal Roll (15:04).

5. Double ★ Trans-Am Vs Cavalry!: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Ryuichi pinned Sekine with the Perfect Five (15:40).

As the ride to Korakuen Hall nears its end, BASARA had one more show to get past before the big event. The Trans-Am ★ Family were victorious over Cavalry with one Ryuichi pinning another. Ryota Nakatsu called Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi a strong wrestler but then claimed he knew his real identity. Nakatsu accused him of being Ryuichi Kawakami from Big Japan! Ryuichi denied the accusation but Nakatsu told him he didn’t care either way. When Nakatsu said he wants nothing more than the Union MAX Title, Ryuichi cut him off and said he loves the belt more.

Dove Pro Wrestling scored a big win over BASARA in a Hardcore Tag Match. Gunso’s impressive win streak in BASARA continues to grow while Naoki Tanizaki was happy to finally get his hands on Isami Kodaka. Tanizaki and Kodaka will fight again on 4th May.

Both Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama weren’t in the mood to compete in their warm up match for Korakuen Hall later this month. Neither of them had anything prepared for the bout. Kodaka, Best Stretchman V3 and Tatsuhiko Yoshino all had to motivate them into wrestling each other. The match only ended with a winner when the referee accidentally knocked over Maruyama and pushed Ryu on top of him. Gouma and Maruyama explained afterwards that they just cannot be motivated to wrestle if a criminal trial is not attached to it.

The Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament returns later this year. Kodaka is putting 500,000 yen of his own pocket money into the prize pot. The tournament begins on 4th May and lasts until 5th July.

Danshoku Dino held a Coming Out party for Royce Isaacs at the Cholesterol Bar in Shinjuku earlier today. Isaacs explained that when he used the Lip Lock on Antonio Honda during their match at the weekend he felt comfortable with the action. Although he worked hard in America he was never happy with the situation he was in. But when he came to Japan and met Dino he was convinced to come out as gay. Dino explained that he saw the gay wrestler in Isaacs and felt a little outraged that Isaacs was holding it back. So to help him out he brought him to this bar and asked the owner Mr. Takuya if Isaacs can become accepted as a gay wrestler. Takuya said of course he would, he can even reach high enough to be No. 1! Isaacs said that even though he currently holds a Right To Challenge contract, he knows that everyone is more interested in his “Miracle Ass”. He then showed some examples of what he is talking about by using his ass to cut a banana in half, open a bottle of champagne and cook raw eggs. Dino, Takuya and Amon Tsurumi tasted each of the food and were delighted by the taste! Isaacs said everyone will get to see the Miracle Ass in action before he cashes in his RTC contract.

BASARA “VAJRA 32 ~SPRING BAMBOO AFTER RAIN~” Results

April 6, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 32 ~SPRING BAMBOO AFTER RAIN~”, 06/04/2017
Yokohama Nigiwai-za Noge Share
101 Fans – No Vacancy

1. IRON PRIEST Vs Double ★ Trans-Am: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Abe when FUMA pinned Abe with the Heavy Metal Anthem (8:59).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: PSYCHO defeated Gouma Ryu and Konaka = Pale One when PSYCHO pinned both Ryu and Konaka with the High Fly Bomb (8:49).
3. Hardcore Match: Gunso defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Jorge Clutch (13:31).
4. Episode 2 – Death Penalty Of Best Stretchman V3: Isami Kodaka defeated Best Stretchman V3 with the European Clutch (8:42).
5. Cavalry Vs Hiroshi du Soleil: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT when Nakatsu submitted SAGAT with the Cross Armbreaker (12:42).

Ryota Nakatsu sent a message to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi after the main event. Nakatsu said he is gaining confidence and in good shape but he didn’t get what he wanted today because Ryuichi wasn’t here. He wondered if Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is related to Ryuichi Kawakami because he saw Kawakami carrying the Union MAX Title at a Big Japan show earlier in the week. No matter, Nakatsu will take the title from whichever Ryuichi at Korakuen Hall instead.

Nobody got a bigger hero’s welcome on this show than Best Stretchman V3. His entrance had loads of streamers and plenty of people cheering for him. His opponent Isami Kodaka couldn’t help but say how funny the situation was. The two traded stretching submission holds until Kodaka caught Stretchman with the European Clutch for the win. It was at that point when Stretchman discovered that you will lose a wrestling match by having your shoulders pinned down for three seconds. He thanked “Hardcore Samurai” for a great learning experience and now he understands the rules of pro wrestling.

Gunso’s dominance in BASARA Hardcore Matches continued with a big victory over Takumi Tsukamoto. Gunso ambushed him before the match then fought back and forth with chairs and a ladder. Tsukamoto tried to hit the Tiger Suplex but Gunso countered it into a School Boy for a nearfall. When Tsukamoto kicked out Gunso turned the move into a Jorge Clutch and this time got the three count.

PSYCHO was put on trial accused of using multiple identities to exploit promotions out of their fight money. PSYCHO would allegedly disguise himself as mute wrestlers even though he can plainly speak. His opening comments simply involved him mumbling about baseball. Gouma Ryu’s defence was PSYCHO cannot wrestle because he is an ordinary man and ordinary men do not wrestle. Konaka = Pale One objected and called Ryu an ordinary man who wrestles. Ryuichi Sekine and Isami Kodaka were brought in as witnesses. Kodaka accused PSYCHO of attempting to murder him with a Choke Slam one time in K-DOJO. When Ryu heard this he refused to defend PSYCHO any further. This led to PSYCHO attacking both Ryu and Konaka and he pinned both of them with the High Fly Bomb. The judge declared PSYCHO was Not Guilty.

The newest member of the Trans-Am unit did not make a good first impression. Trans-Am ★ Abe came out wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket, acting like he was The Rock. The leather jacket turned out to be his downfall because it would not come off properly when he gestured for the People’s Elbow. He bungled the move and missed, allowing IRON PRIEST to put him away. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi yelled “You’re Fired!” at Abe after the match. Abe begged for one more chance. Hiroshi offered to give him one but only if Abe kisses his ass. Abe abandoned his pride and kissed Hiroshi’s ass but was then given the Stunner. Hiroshi then announced that Trans-Am ★ Tanaka will debut as the group’s newest member on 29th April.

There is a new rookie in BASARA who is ready to make his debut. Takato Nakano introduced himself at the beginning of the show. Nakano is 22 years old and describes himself as not the dexterous type. He was surprised when Isami Kodaka entered the ring and announced he will be Nakano’s opponent for his debut match on 29th April.

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.
