6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Keisuke Ishii (c) with the Ninja Choke (23:43).
*Keisuke Ishii fails in V7. Shuichiro Katsumura becomes the 28th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion!

2019 in Ganbare☆Wrestling begins with a title change! Shuichiro Katsumura was taken to his limit by Keisuke Ishii until he countered the Double Arm DDT into the Ninja Choke for the tapout victory. Katsumura thanked Ishii for giving him another shot at the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title even thought Ishii already defended the belt against him last June. Katsumura also said that he now feels like he belongs in Ganpro. He nominated Shota as his first challenger because they are tied one a piece in singles matches. The match takes place on 26th January.

Although he lost the match, Yumehito Imanari talked about how much he idolised Minoru Fujita ever since he was a high school student. Imanari thought Fujita had a Lion Heart like Chris Jericho. Fujita shook Imanari’s hand but then gave him an Implant DDT and the Tombstone Piledriver. He doesn’t care what some fucking idiot from Ganpro thinks about him! Suddenly Moeka Haruhi entered the ring demanding a match against Fujita. Fujita accepted and tried to flirt with Haruhi. She kicked him in the face.

A bunch of wrestlers gave their new year’s resolution at the beginning of the show. Imanari wants to develop his own style of wrestling. Ishii wants to grow more as a wrestler and also help Ganpro become bigger. Kouki Iwasaki wants Ganpro to be the place to see frenetic fights. Shota wants to meet the expectations of his fans after having a bad 2018. Shuhei Washida wants to make up for the time he was away because of injury and become stronger in the process. HARUKAZE wants to have a whirlwind 2019. Haruhi was inspired by Imanari’s speech at Korakuen Hall in December and wants to show everyone the direction the company will go this year. Ken Ohka wants everybody to be themselves. Some of the roster may think they are doing this already but he wants them to really think if they are doing what they want to do in Ganpro. And of course, Ohka wants Ganpro to become a major pro wrestling league!

6. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku In Korakuen Hall!! – Texas Tornado Singapore Cane Tag Match: Yumehito Imanari & Shota defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura when Imanari pinned Shimomura with the Chubby Knee (10:44).
7. No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match: Minoru Fujita defeated Ken Ohka with the Modified SAYONARA (19:51).

Ganbare☆Wrestling’s return to Korakuen Hall was headlined by Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita fighting tooth and nail in a ring surrounded with barbed wire instead of ropes. Barbed wired wasn’t enough for them as a ladder also came into play during the match. Ohka Suplexed Fujita from the top of the ladder while later on Fujita dove off the ladder onto Ohka with barbed wire wrapped around his waist. Ohka wouldn’t give up and kept fighting to get up after Fujita hit him with the Fire Spear and a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. It took a modified Tombstone Piledriver for Fujita to finally put his rival away.

Fujita told Ohka that this was the result of the last two years going back to the previous time Ganpro was in Korakuen. Fujita even ran down Ohka for drawing a smaller crowd this time! If Ohka still believes he is trying his best and working his hardest then he should be miserable from today’s result. Fujita doesn’t care if he does his best so he has no regrets. He said Sento Minzoku are done with Ganpro and will not come back. When they left the ring, Yumehito Imanari called for them to stop. Imanari promised Fujita that he has a purpose for him to stay in Ganpro. He wants to fight Fujita at Kitazawa Town Hall on 6th January! Imanari described Fujita as an “A Class War Criminal” that he should fight. Fujita accepted the challenge while Imanari was encouraging Ohka to stand back up. When Sento Minzoku did leave, Ohka and Imanari admitted that today’s show was a poorer draw than two years ago but they will learn from it. They won’t show their weak points anymore. Everyone in Ganpro will give their energy and full feelings toward the company to make it even bigger! Everyone will work hard so more fans will come see them. Imanari then told everyone his phone number and to call him if they have anything exciting to tell him.

Imanari and Shota continued to rally a crowd around him inside the Korakuen lobby after the show was over. There was a lot of video game talk like how Imanari bought Toukon Retsuden for the original Playstation and that he has to evolve like a Pokémon. Shota said that the indies have been evolving during the 2010s and strangely enough he thinks the scene now reminds him of the 1990s. Imanari then told everyone they will return pro wrestling to the golden age once more. Ganbare☆Wrestling will be their DeLorean!

Imanari & Shota have good reason to be confident. They are riding high from beating Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura in a Texas Tornado Singapore Cane Tag Match. No tags were needed and Singapore Canes were all legal. Imanari Back Body Dropped Shota over the ropes and onto Sekine to take him out of the match. He then wound up breaking a cane over his knees before hitting Shimomura with the match winning Chubby Knee Strike.

Kouki Iwasaki came close to beating Jake Lee with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster 10 minutes into their match. Lee struck back with Middle Kicks until he could get in a Back Drop for the three count. Lee would be happy to share the ring with Iwasaki again some day either as opponents or partners. Iwasaki would rather be his opponent and maybe have it happen over in All Japan.

Speaking of All Japan, the group’s head honcho Jun Akiyama was in action kneeing the crap out of Keisuke Ishii. The newly costumed Ishii had some power in his Suplexes but was struck down with Running Knee Strikes and and Exploder Suplex. Ishii was able to kick out of them but was done when Akiyama gave him the Sternness Dust α. Akiyama patted Ishii on the chest after the match. Ishii was hoping that today would be the start of Chapter 3 in his wrestling career. He adores this kind of pro wrestling so he is thankful to Akiyama for giving him this match. He is now even more motivated to grow and also study Akiyama’s style.

Chikara was given a bouquet to celebrate his fifth year in wrestling. Carbell Ito threw out Christmas candy into the audience then told Chikara he came here today to judge him. They went into a long chop exchange during the match. Chikara accidentally hit Mitomi Masayuki with the Saber Chop and Ito dove onto Masayuki afterwards. He then hit a Diving Body Press to Chikara. Naoshi Sano took over the match and pinned Chikara with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ito stomped on Chikara when the match was over.

It was announced that Fairy Nihonbashi had gone missing and had to be replaced. Taking her spot was Fairy Suidobashi, the same person but wearing a Yomiuri Giants jersey and announced as the “Fairy Of The Tokyo Dome“. She carried a mini baseball bat and used it as a wand to cast spells on Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and even the referee. The late part of the match focused on HARUKAZE and Sumire Natsu squaring off against each other. Natsu countered an Armbar into a Power Bomb and pinned HARUKAZE with the Yoran DDT.

The in ring return for Shuhei Washida ended in defeat. Shuichiro Katsumura trapped him in a Toe Hold while Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Takeshi Okada held Hiroshi Yamato & Yukihiro Abe back from breaking the hold.

1. GanJo Final Settlement Match!: Moeka Haruhi defeated Manami Kanda with the Diving Foot Stomp (9:08).
2. THE ROOT OF WRESTLING TAG BATTLE!!: Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Takeshi Okada when Iwasaki pinned Okada with a Grounded Cobra Twist (12:07).

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs MAD DOG CLUB: Ben McCoy, Justin Dread & Vic Capri defeated Hiroshi Yamato, Yumehito Imanari & Shota when Dread pinned Shota with the Firebird Splash (12:16).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku Again!: Ken Ohka defeated Ryuichi Sekine with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (11:36).

Ken Ohka was left bloodied by Ryuichi Sekine but not beaten. Sekine busted Ohka open with a metal spike as they brawled outside the ring. Ohka escaped from the Let’s Combine and took control with some Dragon Screws and the Kamikaze. The two traded chops and heabutts until Ohka hit the Fire Spear and pinned Sekine with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka called Sekine his friend but also said if he is now his enemy because of Sento Minzoku then he will fight him as many times as possible. But now Ohka has another target in his sights. Minoru Fujita! Ohka needs an opponent for the big Korakuen Hall show on 16th January and he has a lot of history with Fujita. Ohka is challenging Fujita to a No Ropes Barbed Wire match for the main event! Fujita says his kind of pro wrestling isn’t going to get on the cover of Shukan Puroresu but the feelings he puts into it aren’t lies. He will give it his all at Korakuen!

The Ganbare☆Wrestling rookie Shuhei Washida approached Ohka at the end of the show pleading to be added to the Korakuen card. Washida cannot stand being away from Ganpro especially as more and more wrestlers join the group. He slapped Ohka to prove how serious he is and it was enough to convince him. Ohka was then blindsided when Minoru Fujita attacked him. Fujita set up a table at ringside and crushed Ohka through it with a Diving Body Press from the top rope. Fujita told Ohka that Sento Minzoku only has one purpose and that’s to destroy Ganpro!

The MAD DOG CLUB ruined everyone’s fun when they attacked Hiroshi Yamato, Yumehito Imanari & Shota before their match. The Ganpro team were dancing with radishes to entertain the fans when the MDC ambushed them.

Referee Daisuke Kiso got knocked out during the Moeka Haruhi Vs Manami Kanda match. Yumehito Imanari got in the ring all dressed up to take his place but Haruhi and Kanda quickly got rid of him.

HARUKAZE will return to Ganpro on 16th December. She will team with Moeka Haruhi to take on Sumire Natsu & Fairy Nihonbashi. Other matches announced are Kouki Iwasaki Vs Jake Lee and Keisuke Ishii Vs Jun Akiyama! Two other names were announced to appear. Yukihiro Abe and Mitomi Masayuki make their Ganpro returns!

5c. Minoru Fujita eliminated Keisuke Ishii by Ring Out (11:50).
5d. Ken Ohka eliminated Minoru Fujita by Ring Out (1:15).
5e. Ryuichi Sekine eliminated Ken Ohka with the Dragon Kick (11:26).

The first meeting between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Sento Minzoku took place as a singles Gauntlet match with Ring Out rules in effect until the final match. Things started off well for Ganpro when Shota pinned Daiki Shimomura. Sento Minzoku’s newest member Minoru Fujita turned the tables by beating Shota and then Keisuke Ishii. When Ken Ohka stepped into the ring to fight him, Fujita instead decided to eliminate himself. Ryuichi Sekine then attacked Ohka from behind to begin the final round of the match. Sekine bloodied Ohka’s forehead outside the ring and he blocked the Fire Spear with a Kneelift inside the ring. Sekine wrapped his tail around his leg and hit Ohka with the Dragon Kick. The extra power behind the move got Sekine and Sento Minzoku the victory, although Ohka did kick out right as the ref counted three.

The disputed finish led to a brawl between the two sides. During Sekine’s attempts to tell everyone it was a three count, Shimomura grabbed the microphone off him and told Ishii he was coming after him. He’s ready for a fight anytime, anywhere. Fujita then bragged about being back in the main story of Ganpro. He both won and lost his matches today, showing that this invasion isn’t as black and white as it seems. His purpose in the unit is to make everything good in both BASARA and Ganpro. Ohka said his side lost today but losing is never the end when it comes to wrestling. Life goes on and Ohka still has fight in him to have another match. He told everyone that both Ganpro and BASARA will be holding shows in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 17th November. Ohka wants singles matches against Sekine on one show and Fujita on the other. They both accepted. Sekine promised to be in perfect condition while Fujita told Ohka to borrow the power of B’z and “BAD COMMUNICATION” when they face off again.

Hideki Suzuki isn’t sure if Kouki Iwasaki has earned his respect yet, but Suzuki never wanted to give him that in the first place. Suzuki would rather have Iwasaki show no respect and come at him with a killer instinct. That is how Suzuki does it and he wants his opponents to do that too. With that said he did shake Iwasaki’s hand after the match.

The match between Shigehiro Irie and Chikara featured unexpected interference from Shin Mokujin Ken, Mizuki Watase and Keisuke Ishii. Both Watase and Ishii launched an attack train on Irie as a good gestured farewell. They encouraged the referee Daisuke Kiso to join in but Irie caught him. He threatened to give Kiso the Black Hole Slam but instead gently put him down and gave him a hug. Irie went on to beat Chikara and they shook with their left hands. Irie left the ring with a big smile on his face.

Both teams in the women’s match wanted to be called Team HARUKAZE. At the beginning of the show Moeka Haruhi announced she is joining Ganpro to support the Ganbare☆Joshi division in HARUKAZE’s absence.

Hiroshi Yamato & Yumehito Imanari brought radishes to the ring and used them as weapons on their opponents. Shuichiro Katsumura & Nobuhiro Tsurumaki turned the radishes against the team and won the match.

This change is closer to Nodoka’s real personality than her previous gimmick. So far the fan response to her new look has been completely positive. She will also be getting a new entrance song for her first match as Tenma.

BASARA “BASARA 77 ~FEAST~”, 05/09/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Stretchman Man Vs Gouma Ryu
2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Yasu Urano
3. Benmaru Tournament 0: Jun Masaoka Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Aikata Vs Bozu! Tag Showdown: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe
5. Doki! Hardcore Match Full Of Cans: Isami Kodaka Vs FUMA
6. Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano

The main event is a nice mix of veterans and rookies teaming together to continue the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud.

How much has changed since Isami Kodaka and FUMA last fought each other one on one? Normally a match like this would determine a future challenger for the Union MAX Title but this time around I think BASARA will go a different direction. This feels more like a tune-up match for Kodaka before he goes into the steel cage against Masashi Takeda.

It looks like we’re not getting any more Pro Wrestling Trials now that Banana Senga has transformed into Stretchman Man. I don’t think prosecutors are allowed to have a big hook over their hand inside a court room. At least I don’t remember seeing that in Boston Legal or any of the Phoenix Wright games.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “GANBARE☆CLIMAX 2018 FINAL ROUND” Results

August 12, 2018

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “GANBARE☆CLIMAX 2018 FINAL ROUND”, 12/08/2018
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
196 Fans – No Vacancy

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated HARUKAZE with a Knee Drop (12:32).
*V4 for Keisuke Ishii.
6. Ganbare☆Climax 2018 – Final: Yumehito Imanari defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Chubby Knee (19:08).

Change is afoot in Ganbare☆Wrestling. The Imanari Revolution has succeeded in its goal in making Yumehito Imanari a main eventer but there were plenty of other stories on this show that mark a new landscape for the brand. Imanari’s hard fought victories over Shota and Shinichiro Tominaga resulted in him winning the second ever Ganbare☆Climax. To celebrate his achievement, Imanari said Ganpro will return to the location of its very first show, the Nanhai Ichigaya Memorial Clinic on 13th September.

Imanari’s victory speech was interrupted by an unexpected figure. Kouki Iwasaki entered the ring. He said there is a lot he wants to do in Ganpro like the match with Shuichiro Katsumura he was supposed to have on New Year’s Eve. Imanari thanked Iwasaki for coming and is happy to have him on board with Ganpro. Imanari then invited Sanshiro Takagi to enter the ring for a favour. He told him he wants Ganpro to run Korakuen Hall again and he found out that DDT has the venue booked for 16th December. Takagi wanted to know who leaked him that information but Imanari said Takagi left the schedule visible on his desk at DDT HQ. Imanari invited everyone to tweet non-stop at Takagi to give over the date but he immediately gave it up.

You may have noticed something isn’t right about what was written so far. How come Imanari gets to make the decisions now instead of Ganpro’s founder Ken Ohka? Well that’s because Ohka has walked out! He was beaten again today this time by Mitsuo Momota in a tag match. Afterwards Ohka grabbed his suitcase and left the building yelling “I don’t know” and “I am in trouble” at nearby reporters.

HARUKAZE put up a good effort against Keisuke Ishii by targeting his arm with Cross Armbreakers. But she fell to a Lariat and a Middle Kick both to the back of the head followed by a Knee Drop.

It looks like Survival Tobita isn’t up to scratch when he wrestles a regular match. He quickly ran out of steam and was easily put away by Tominaga in the Ganbare☆Climax semi-final.
