*Daisuke Sasaki fails in V6. Ken Ohka becomes the 26th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion!

At the beginning of today’s show, Ken Ohka gave a speech about how you are the leading role in the story of your life. Every match on the card featured wrestlers who are the protagonists of their own stories. For Ohka his story was putting everything on the line. His company, his family, his support. All to win back everything Daisuke Sasaki took from him including the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. A few days earlier there was a chance that Ohka was going to lose this opportunity because Sasaki defended the title against TAKA Michinoku in K-DOJO. But Sasaki won that match and brought the belt back to Ganbare☆Wrestling for another title defence. That’s not all, this time Sasaki had the rest of DAMNATION backing him up. The unit distracted the referee so Sasaki could attack Ohka with a chair at ringside. Sasaki also took off one of the turnbuckle covers so he could throw Ohka into the exposed parts of the corner. Ohka kicked out of the Diving Hitman Elbow Drop and fired back with a Headbutt. He then countered the Cross Facelock into a Dragon Suplex. Sasaki blocked the Fire Spear but Ohka recovered and gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka then hit the Fire Spear properly and that was enough to win the championship! Now everything Sasaki won from Ohka must be returned. Ohka told Sasaki he doesn’t care what he called him in the past. If Ohka is an amateur then he is okay with being called that. Instead what he cherishes most are the people most important to him like his family and everyone in Ganpuro. He invited the Ganpuro roster into the ring to celebrate defending the company from DAMNATION.

The rest of the DAMNATION matches didn’t go so well for Ganpuro. Shinichiro Tominaga lost to Tetsuya Endo in the battle of the high flyers. Tominaga did kick out of the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb. Endo had to use the Shooting Star Press to put him away.

Back in February of this year a woman named Mao Hoshino participated in a Ganpuro tryout and passed the audition. However her plans to become a pro wrestler were dashed when her parents objected to her choice of career. Not wanting to put all of her training to waste, it was decided that Hoshino would get to wrestle once before she moves on with her life. Her debut and retirement match was against her mentor Cherry. Hoshino hit a Perfect Plex for a nearfall but her second attempt at the move was countered. From there Cherry took control and won with the Cherryton Bomb. Cherry praised Hoshino for giving a strong performance and it is unfortunate that she isn’t able to continue. She wished Hoshino the best on her journey to discover herself. Ohka also said his piece and was happy to see how far Hoshino advanced with just a few months of training. She only wrestled once but Mao Hoshino will always be a member of Ganbare☆Wrestling. Hoshino thanked everyone for the opportunity and was given the 10 bell salute. The announcer introduced her as “a professional wrestler for 9 minutes and 49 seconds.”

The first Ganpuro Vs DAMNATION match of the show was Shota & Yumehito Imanari taking on the heavyweights Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie. The Ganpuro team ambushed DAMNATION as they entered the ring but were easily swept aside. From there the home side fought an uphill battle. Shota & Imanari were able to take Ishikawa down with a Double Brainbuster. A Frog Splash followed by a Running Low Kick got them a nearfall. Ishikawa then cut them off with a Lariat and Mad Paulie came in to do a Double Choke Slam. Ishikawa grabbed Imanari by the hair and smashed him with Elbow Strikes before finishing him off with the Running Knee Lift.

HARUKAZE has finally gotten her win over Sumire Natsu and also her first win in Ganpuro! She focused on targeting Natsu’s arm, capturing her in Cross Armbreakers until she was in the position to reach back and grab Natsu’s other arm. The double Armbar is called Haru Ichiban and it was enough to make Natsu submit. HARUKAZE celebrated by calling herself the ace of Ganbare☆Joshi. She also thanked Natsu because their matches together helped to make her a stronger wrestler. She stuck her hand out but Natsu refused to shake it. She chose to raise HARUKAZE’s hand instead.

For the 3 Way Match, Shuichiro Katsumura came out wearing his Ganbare The Shooter mask. When the match began he unmasked, left the ring and found a chair to sit on while Yukihiro Abe and Chikara wrestled each other. He eventually got properly involved with the match and won it by choking out Abe with the Ninja Choke.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION Full Battle PART 3 ~Bet On All~: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Ken Ohka

It’s reached the point where it is all or nothing for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. He is willing to put everything on the line against Daisuke Sasaki to win back the Independent Jr. Title. His marriage, his family, his remaining wealth and Ganpuro itself are all at risk! But a gamble this big against an opponent so uncaring has caught the attention of the rest of DAMNATION so now they are coming along for the ride!

Sumire Natsu has beaten HARUKAZE in two straight matches but both wins were under shady circumstances. Natsu only accepted one more rematch when she made Ohka pay for her bullet train tickets to and from the show. Also if Natsu wins then she will replace HARUKAZE as the regular women’s wrestler on the Ganpuro roster. Ohka has gotten his own little dig in against Natsu by giving her the nickname “Shabby Thick Makeup”.

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Cross Facelock (18:31).
*V4 for Daisuke Sasaki.

The self-proclaimed “Best And Strongest Amateur” stepped up to face Daisuke Sasaki for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. There was a promise by Sasaki to fight a clean fight but he soon broke it by throwing a chair at Shinichiro Tominaga. Sasaki later kicked Tominaga into the referee. Sasaki went far enough to attempt the Vietnam Driver II onto the ref but Tominaga rescued him. From there Tominaga fought fire with fire and threw the ref at Sasaki then gave Sasaki a Hurricanrana after the distraction. Sasaki applied the Cross Facelock but Tominaga got out of the move by biting Sasaki’s wrist. He later countered the Crossover Facelock with the Kido Clutch for a nearfall. Sasaki hit his flash Hurricanrana for another nearfall but Tominaga broke out an Overhead Kick afterwards. Sasaki locked on the Cross Facelock one more time and got Tominaga to tap out.

Sasaki taunted Tominaga after the match. He knows Tominaga wants him to say he did well but an amateur is an amateur. Is Tominaga still a salaryman away from wrestling? Then he should quit and restart his wrestling training from scratch as a trainee. Sasaki then complained he came all the way from Yamagata to wrestle in Ganbare☆Wrestling, an organisation full of amateurs. Ken Ohka heard Sasaki and stormed out to the ring demanding a title match. Sasaki doesn’t want it nor does he ever want to wrestle in Ganpuro again. Ohka then pulled out Sumire Natsu’s deposit book and offered to put it on the line. Sasaki threw it away and said he doesn’t wrestle for money. The crowd jeered Sasaki for the obvious lie. Sasaki finally broke and accepted Ohka’s challenge but on one condition. If Sasaki wins he takes the most important thing in Ohka’s life other than his family (Sasaki hates kids). When he wins he takes over Ganbare☆Wrestling! And to make sure the debt will be paid Sasaki will be bringing DAMNATION with him to the match on 20th December. Ohka accepted and has the rest of Ganpuro supporting him. Yumehito Imanari even did his own version of DAMNATION’s catchphrase. “We will not flock! We will not flirt! We want to get married! Ganbare☆Wrestling will never be defeated!”

Ken Ohka & “brother” YASSHI teamed up to celebrate Ohka’s 16th anniversary in wrestling. YASSHI gave himself and Ohka a big introduction ending with a shout of “Toryumon” as the match against Shota & Yumehito Imanari began. Ohka was in danger when Shota gave him the Frog Splash and then followed up with a Tope Con Hilo to YASSHI. But when Tominaga took over, Ohka recovered and hit two Fire Spears to win the match.

The rematch between HARUKAZE and Sumire Natsu was meant to be the last meeting between the two but there was another dodgy finish here. Natsu again used the ropes for leverage when she pinned HARUKAZE but this time the referee caught her cheating. When the two argued with each other HARUKAZE tried to grab Natsu. Natsu avoided her and went for a Big Boot but HARUKAZE ducked and the referee took the kick. HARUKAZE hit Natsu with the Fire Spear but couldn’t get the pin because the referee was knocked down. When the ref got up Natsu recovered and hit the Big Boot on HARUKAZE. She did a Cutie Special and a Shining Wizard then finally got the win with the Yoran. Ken Ohka tried to protest the result but realised that HARUKAZE and Natsu had already agreed to make this their last singles match against each other. Ohka begged Natsu to have one more rematch with HARUKAZE. Natsu would only agree to it if Ohka pays for her bullet train ticket from Osaka to Tokyo. She knows Ohka has saved up some cash since he lost his money to Sasaki, Also if Natsu win then she will replace HARUKAZE as the regular female wrestler for Ganpuro. Ohka hesitated but agreed to make the match for 20th December.

“Kotori” was given a special Rumble match as a gift before she retires from pro wrestling on 21st December. She and J-Soul Pandita III IV were the first two entries in the match. “Kotori” challenged Pandita to a game of sumo until the creature lost its temper. The evil Dr. Kiriko was the next entrant and he scared off “Kotori”. Yumehito Imanari, Shota and Ken Ohka rounded out the remaining entries. Ohka was eliminated immediately, getting thrown out while he was in the middle of his entrance. Daisuke Kiso got involved in one of the multi-man spots and Lariated Shota to eliminate him from the match. Imanari asked “Kotori” why she was retiring but he was so tired that he was easily Clotheslined out of the ring by her. “Kotori” continued her elimination streak and pinned Kiriko and then Pandita to win the Rumble. “Kotori” shook hands with Ohka after the match and then flipped him over with a Shoulder Toss. That is her farewell from Ganpuro.

The second Ganbare The Tryout was almost as big of a mess as the first one. Ganbare The Akihabara came out without a mask and was more interested in reading manga. Ganbare The Shooter took off his own mask and offered it to Akihbara but was told to put it back on. Ganbare The Power wouldn’t stop shouting “Power!” and generally ignored everyone else’s shenanigans. He hit the other three wrestlers with Saber Chops, some intentional and some not. He dove on top of all three of them to get the three count. Power asked Ganbare The Great if winning the match meant he passed the audition. Great said “Of course not!” and rejected Power. Akihabara failed because he wouldn’t wear his mask and Shooter failed too. Shooter took off his mask in response to the news. Great then admitted that he himself also failed. He unmasked and threw the mask into the air to end the audition.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BLUE INAZUMA 2017”, 03/11/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
206 Fans – No Vacancy

5. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Shota with the Just Facelock (16:36).
6. Bonus Track ~72 Hours Honey TV Special Tag Match~ Youtuber Kusanagi Pro Wrestling Debut Match: Danshoku Dino & Youtuber Kusanagi defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Kusanagi pinned Imanari after the Spike Danshoku Driver (3:38).

The end of the show was interrupted by Danshoku Dino and another person. He came here not out of competition between DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling but to offer them some attention instead. The person with Dino was Kusanagi, a Youtuber who also hosts a show on AbemaTV called 72 Hour Television. He wants to make a worldwide trending video so Dino suggested him to enter a pro wrestling match which is why they are here today. An impromptu match between Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Dino & Kusanagi took place there and then. Kusanagi and his friends recorded the match while he wrestled and he even got the winning pinfall on Imanari after a Spike Danshoku Driver.

The scheduled main event was Shota Vs Shinichiro Tominaga which Tominaga won. He told Shota the reason he won today was because it is Autumn. Tominaga always fights his best during the Autumn. But he wants to fight Shota again in Spring, Summer and Winter too so they can fight during every season. Tominaga then brought up the time Daisuke Sasaki called him an amateur. Tominaga wants Sasaki to answer what is the line that separates an amateur and a professional. He wants Sasaki to go visit the XVideos website and look up the most searched word on that site. It is “Amateur”. If Tominaga is an amateur then he will take the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title from Sasaki and become the strongest amateur! Tominaga will get his title match on 26th November.

The assassin sent by Sasaki to fight Ohka was revealed to be Nobuhiro Shimatani! Even though Sasaki explicitly said in advance that his assassin is not a member of DAMNATION, Shimatani acted like he was one by wearing the DAMNATION shirt with a leather jacket over it. He said Ohka has lost all his money and today he will lose his wrestling life! He attacked Ohka and immediately went for a Cross Facelock. Ohka defended himself then brawled with Shimatani until he finished him off with the Fire Spear. He sent a message to Sasaki afterwards. Shimatani is not the sort of godly assassin that was promised but still the assassin was defeated. That means Ohka deserves another shot at taking the World Jr. Title from him. Ohka also told Shimatani he is doing fine without DAMNATION and he doesn’t need their vindication to be strong. Shimatani shook Ohka’s hand and left the ring.

A wrestler from India named Brian Aki approached the ring during the opening announcements. He introduced himself to Ohka, told him that Ganpuro is very famous in his country and he travelled all the way to Japan so he can wrestle here. Ohka was amazed by this discovery and he added Aki into the Ganbare Tryout match. In the tryout match Ganbare The Shooter forgot to wear his mask so Ganbare The Great covered his face until one was found. Ganbare The Akihabara carried a Comiket paper bag to the ring containing a Black Spider VII mask he wore later on. Ganbare The Robin wrestled in a Minoru Fujita shirt over his usual gear. Robin got the win the a Diving Cross Body onto the other team but it took some time for everybody to stand in the right position. He wouldn’t risk the move until they were close enough for him to do it successfully. When the match was over Ganbare The Great announced the tryout results. Brain Aki failed because he cannot communicate well with the other wrestlers. Akihabara failed because he is a thief. Robin failed for no reason. So the entire tryout was a failure! Robin complained that should have passed because he won the match. He promised to return on his own terms next time.

Sumire Natsu got heckled by both the audience and the wrestlers for wearing heavy make-up on her face for the match. She got the last laugh by pinning HARUKAZE with her feet on the ropes. HARUKAZE demanded a singles match with Natsu and it will take place on 26th November.

There were times in the opening match when J-Soul Pandita III IV wandered away from the ring leaving Chikara and Imanari to fight each other. It eventually wandered back in. Chikara gave it the Saber Chop but Imanari kicked him away and gave Pandita the Death Penalty to steal the win.

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.

*V2 for Ken Ohka.

The show kicked off with confusion when a masked man attacked Ken Ohka and took his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title belt. Then in the championship match main event Ohka was ambushed by Naoshi Sano during his entrance. Both Ohka and Sano were left bloodied after a ringside brawl but the champion survived the onslaught. Ohka missed the Fire Spear the first time but then hit the move from behind. He then won the match with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka called Sano an inspiration for still wrestling in his 40’s. It encourages Ohka to continue wrestling in his late 30’s.

Dai Suzuki celebrated his fourth year as a pro wrestler by teaming with his fellow DNA fighter Rekka against Shiro Koshinaka & GENTARO. Although Suzuki took the pinfall loss it didn’t dampen his spirit. Ohka invited him into the ring at the end of the show. Suzuki said he will not give up and he truly appreciates everyone for coming to see him wrestle today. He will do his best to make more people like pro wrestling.

Despite her best efforts HARUKAZE couldn’t beat Saori Anou. It was Anou’s tricky movements that gave HARUKAZE the most difficulty. The match ended with Anou giving HARUKAZE a Backslide. Then Anou bridged herself over HARUKAZE for more leverage with the pin. HARUKAZE cried because she still hasn’t won a match yet and she wants everyone to depend on her. Ohka announced her next match in August will be against Sumire Natsu.

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.
