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).
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Gunso & Naoki Tanizaki defeated Isami Kodaka & SAGAT when Gunso pinned SAGAT with the Diving Guillotine Drop from the Ladder (18:31).
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.

perfectplex-itadaki

In an upset, Hiroshi Fukuda has won the first ever Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament! BASARA’s token American wrestler went against Isami Kodaka with 500,000 yen on the line. Fukuda led the crowd with “USA” chants but had an uphill battle. Kodaka gave him a Brainbuster on the floor and tried to win by countout. Fukuda barely made it back in time. The tables turned when Fukuda rolled away from a Diving Double Knee Drop. Fukuda then applied a Figure Four Leg Lock. Kodaka countered the Perfect Plex into a Reverse Double Armbar. Kodaka hit the Diving Double Knee Drop but Fukuda kicked out. He blocked the Zan Isamuashi and gave Kodaka the Perfect Plex but that also resulted in a nearfall. Kodaka hit the Zeyyari but Fukuda hit back with a Brack Drop. He did one more Perfect Plex and this was the one to put Kodaka away! Fukuda now stands on top of BASARA!

trans-am-fukuda-wins

Exhausted after the main event, Kodaka presented Fukuda with the cash prize. Kodaka then announced BASARA will run Korakuen Hall for the first time on 25th December! Fukuda said the bruises covering his body from his match with Daisuke Sekimoto at the first BASARA show were all good for something. He then revealed today is the last day he is Hiroshi Fukuda. From now on he is Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi! He has climbed to the world’s highest level to become BASARA’s strongest foreigner!

tsukamoto-sagat

SAGAT is becoming a changed man after his experience in Heaven Summit. His face paint is gone, his long hair is now cut into a mohawk and he now wears a one strap singlet under his usual wrestling gear. His progression continued when he got the win in a Hardcore 6-Man Tag Team Match. SAGAT shook Takumi Tsukamoto’s hand after the match and told him he felt lost until he met him. He was so anxious that he couldn’t speak until now. He thanks Tsukamoto for helping him.

cavalry-ueki

The trio of Takayuki Ueki and the Brahman Brothers pulled off a cheap shot on Cavalry when they attacked during a handshake at the start of Match #4. They placed a suitcase in between Ryota Nakatsu’s legs and threw a bowling ball into it. Ueki pulled out his gun but Ryuichi Sekine kicked it out of his hands. Ueki got the gun again and tried to take Cavalry’s stick horses captive. They were rescued and Ueki lost his nerve, begging for forgiveness. Sekine instead gave him the Ryusetsu kick to win the match.

masamune-kazato

Masamune gave credit to Daichi Kazato for hitting him with a good Axe Bomber.

maruyama-chop

Ryu Gouma has been paying attention to the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title changes in America that have been appearing on Twitter and Youtube throughout the week. By the time this show took place Kikutaro was the last known champion. So obviously Gouma’s goal was to beat Kikutaro in the 3 Way match and become the new champion. He tried to hit Kikutaro with his statute book but the referee stopped him. What followed was Gouma and the ref both grabbing the book and pulling it away from each other. It ended with the ref accidentally whacking Kikutaro in the head with the book, knocking him out. Atsushi Maruyama then Chopped Gouma in the back of the neck. Gouma fell on top of Kikutaro and Maruyama jumped on top of them for the three count. However the referee ruled that Gouma pinned Kikutaro so he was the winner! Gouma celebrated and asked where the title was. Kikutaro had to explain that he lost the championship to someone else in America before coming home and the video hadn’t been posted online yet.

puroresuman-unmasked

Puroresu Mask Man entered the ring to The Great Sasuke’s “Separados” theme song. He mimicked the moves of Ultimo Dragon and Tiger Mask. However he was left vulnerable when Tsutomu Oosugi unmasked him during a Hurricanrana attempt. Oosugi capitalised and pinned a distracted Choun-Shiryu.

2. FUMA (5)

5. Ryu Gouma (0)

The group stage of Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ are now over and there are two clear block winners. Isami Kodaka and Hiroshi Fukuda will face each other in the final on 23rd June. Kodaka beat Ryota Nakatsu and Fukuda beat FUMA, both matches determined who would have won the blocks. Ryuichi Sekine was also in the running but he suffered an upset defeat to Yusuke Kubo.

Masamune called Kodaka into the ring after Match #3. He asked Kodaka if he was available on 14th August? Masamune will be running a show in Osaka that day and he wants to team with Kodaka to take on Billiken Kid & HUB! With the audience supporting the idea, Kodaka accepted.

Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT seem to have bonded after their hardcore match. After the bout Tsukamoto asked SAGAT to say his real feelings instead of having Hiroshi Fukuda speak on his behalf. SAGAT just screamed and grunted into the microphone. Tsukamoto said that was nothing to worry about and shook SAGAT’s hand after. SAGAT was a lot calmer in his post-match interview. He said that while he is still with Fukuda under the team name Hiroshi du Soleil, he is open to change and a possible team with Tsukamoto in the future.

Atsushi Maruyama arrived late to the show, appearing at ringside when it began. He and Ryu Gouma did their in-ring warm ups during the show introductions. Gouma wanted revenge on Koji Iwamoto for damaging his statute book on last Friday’s show. Gouma tried to use his book as a weapon but Kyohei Wada blocked him. That allowed Iwamoto to hit the Aloof Art and get the win for his team.

Block B Standings

1. FUMA (5)
-. Takumi Tsukamoto (5)
3. Daichi Kazato (4)

5. Ryu Gouma (0)

After the main event Isami Kodaka gestured to Daisuke Sekimoto that he wants one more match. Kodaka said he lost to HARASHIMA in DDT and he lost to Sekimoto in Big Japan. It frustrates him but he has BASARA to fight for. He said it is a place for guys like Hi69 to step up. He will continue to fight for now and beyond. He thanked the fans for cheering for him. Oh, and also for cheering Hi69.

There was no love lost between Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA. Both of them lost their cool and could not be separated. Kyohei Wada couldn’t regain control of the match and disqualified both of them. They were finally kept apart by the other wrestlers at ringside. The match counts as a draw so both of them received a point. However Tsukamoto cannot qualify for the final. That goes to the winner of FUMA Vs Hiroshi Fukuda on Sunday.

In the match between Hiroshi Fukuda and Daichi Kazato, Fukuda kept offering to shake Kazato’s hand. Whenever Kazato reached out to accept it Fukuda lifted his own arm into the air and yelled “Hooooooo!”. Even when Fukuda beat him to keep him out of the final, Kazato saw the funny side and smiled.

Ryu Gouma brought in two “beleaguered foreigners” to help him fight Cavalry. The foreigners turned out to be Heddi French and Choun-Shiryu, making this Shiryu’s BASARA debut. Gouma wanted to help solve his partner’s problems. Cavlry protested Shiryu’s entry into the match and he reminded them he is Chinese. Gouma said the unjust discrimination shown by Cavalry should be solved with legal fighting and the match began. French admitted learning Japanese is difficult. Gouma encouraged him because he was able to say that in Japanese. During the match everyone in Cavalry decided to share their problems with Gouma. Ryota Nakatsu was worried that no one in the audience will go to the Drop Kick Bar after the show. Gouma told him at least two people will. Ryuichi Sekine complained that his liver function is insanely high and he can’t donate blood because of it. Gouma said his problem might involve uric acid so he should take medicine for it. Koji Iwamoto didn’t want to tell anyone his problems. Sekine cut in and said he hates sweet peppers. The match broke down into a brawl and Iwamoto gave his finisher on Gouma onto his statute book to win the match for Cavalry.

In his final match for the Heaven Summit tournament, SAGAT finally grabbed a victory. He beat Yusuke Kubo to end his losing streak and was so happy he hugged the referee down onto the ring mat. With no more matches left in the tournament SAGAT is looking forward to the future. First up is a Hardcore Match against Takumi Tsukamoto this Sunday.
