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.

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.

6. Ganpuro Three Big Single Match ~ Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) defeated Naoshi Sano with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster (13:59).
*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.

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.

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.
