6. Isami Kodaka Debut 16th Anniversary Memorial Match: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji when Hidaka pinned Kodaka with the Iwami Ginzan (15:10).
7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final: Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA with the V Slider (17:56).

Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA in a wild match to win this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~! The match found its way outside the ring a couple of time with FUMA Double Stomping Nakatsu along one of the rows. FUMA later climbed one of the nearby counters and jumped off so he could do the Heavy Metal Anthem. Nakatsu moved out of the way and FUMA landed on the floor. Both of them narrowly returned to the ring in time to continue fighting. Nakatsu avoided FUMA’s Jawbreaker Kick and blocked a Wrist Clutch Exploder to gain control of the match. Nakatsu then hit several Buzzsaw Kicks, a German Suplex and finished FUMA off with the V Slider to win. He thanked FUMA for the match and told him they will face each other again someday. Nakatsu received the 500,000 yen prize money and passed it over to Ryuichi Sekine. He then told everyone his next plan. He wants to challenge for the Union MAX Title at Korakuen Hall on 21st September! He knows Naoki Tanizaki is out there somewhere listening. He better be ready for him!

Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji did well teaming together but ultimately couldn’t overcome Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita. Kodaka & Marufuji did sandwich Knee Strikes to their opponents and Kodaka even did a Shirauni. Hidaka recovered to stun Kodaka with a High Kick and got the three count with the Iwami Ginzan Gutbuster. All four wrestlers shook hands after the match. Kodaka also appealed for a singles match with Marufuji. Backstage Kodaka and Marufuji joked about the idea. Marufuji said he doesn’t want to do it. Kodaka’s response was he won’t book Marufuji for his 20th Anniversary show. Marufuji said he will buy a ticket and come anyway. In all seriousness, Marufuji was honored to be chosen by Kodaka to be his partner for this big occasion. He doesn’t know if he will come back but Kodaka can always get in contact with him.

There were two gigantic matches with everything on the line today. Never mind the Heaven Summit Final or Kodaka’s Anniversary, there were wrestling names on the line! Tsutomu Oosugi had a busy day by being the referee for both matches. First up, Ryuichi Sekine got the upset victory over Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. It took some effort but Sekine kept the former MAX Champion down with the Dragon Kick. The result means that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi must now be renamed Trans-Am ★ Ryuji. He describes today as Armageddon but accepts his fate. He is already teaching the fans how to pronounce his new name.

The 2nd Name Contra Name bout had the stakes reversed. This time the loser between Best Stretchman V3 and Banana Senga would be forced to keep their name for the rest of their life! At first Oosugi didn’t know what side to take. Both wrestlers tried to make him pose with them only for the other guy to cut them off. When Senga pinned Stretchman with his feet on the ropes for leverage, Oosugi refused to count and told Senga he is judging this match fairly. Stretchman began taking the match so seriously that he stripped out of his costume and fought with even more spirit. He put Senga away with the Explosive Axe Bomber. Hercules Senga must now stay as Banana Senga forever! Senga accepted his fate until Stretchman changed his mind. Senga is no longer going to be a banana. Senga is now going to become a Stretchman! Senga protested but V3 knocked him out with the Trigger Point and carried him out of the ring laughing maniacly. Next month will see the debut of a third Best Stretchman! Backstage Gouma Ryu tried to stop them because without Hercules Senga around, the Pro Wrestling Trials no longer have a prosecutor.

Takuya Nomura’s first visit to BASARA saw him pitted against three of the more colorful characters in the Metal Family. He didn’t know what to think of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi shrugging off his kicks with the power of yoga. Nomura & Manabu Hara’s kicks were able to leave a mark eventually but their reliance on doing them allowed both Hiroshi & Yusuke Kubo to vitally counter them with Dragon Screws. SAGAT withstood Fuminori Abe’s Octopus Hold and he hit the Goregrind to win one for the Metal Family.

Gouma Ryu relied heavily on Isami Kodaka distracting the referee to have even a slight chance of beating Yoshihisa Uto. The distractions meant the ref missed Ryu tapping out to a Crab Hold. He also missed Ryu hitting Uto with his law book. Ryu thought he had something when he successfully gave Uto the Running Neckbreaker Drop. It all came crashing down though when Uto cut him off with a Lariat. From there Uto picked up the win with the Reverse Tiger Driver.

The opener saw Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa being fired up to take on the veteran team of Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano. The fire was there, the experience was not. Tsukamoto trapped Nakano in a nasty looking Crab Hold to end the match.

BASARA “VAJRA 70 ~NAGASONE KOTETSU~”, 10/06/2018
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
205 Fans – No Vacancy

1. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo defeated Yasu Urano & Daiki Shimomura when FUMA pinned Shimomura with the Heavy Metal Anthem (12:58).
2. Akiyori Takizawa defeated Gouma Ryu with a Step-Up Enzuigiri (6:07).
3. Best Stretchman Final Chapter? “Why Did They Have To Fight?”: Banana Senga & SAGAT defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Best Stretchman Amazon when Senga pinned V3 with a Cradle (9:23).
4. Isami Kodaka, Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano when Fujita pinned Nakano with the Tombstone Piledriver (15:29).
5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Manabu Hara with the Ground Cobra Twist (11:24).
6. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2: Ryota Nakatsu defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the V Slider (16:37).

Ryota Nakatsu wins the battle between the two Cavalry wrestlers to advance in the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. Nakatsu targeting of Ryuichi Sekine’s left arm paid off when the damage prevented Sekine from using the Let’s Combine hold to its fullest effect. From there Nakatsu out-kicked his friend and got the win with the V Slider. Even though he lost, Sekine was overjoyed that Nakatsu beat him in a spirited match. He gave him his support for the rest of the tournament.

The other Heaven Summit match of the show saw Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi beating Manabu Hara to advance. Hara looked to be the better wrestler with High Kicks, Cross Armbreakers and Suplexes but Hiroshi trapped him in a Cobra Twist to get the surprise three count. Hiroshi said in his backstage interview that a major theme of pro wrestling is pain. He identifies with physical pain because of the injuries and illnesses he has suffered in the last couple of years. The yoga he does now helps him handling mental pain. He still feels the pain, all of Hara’s moves made sure of that. But without having to worry about pain, Hiroshi can now see pro wrestling matches as different puzzles. Today he was able to solve one of them.

Isami Kodaka talked about how comfortable he is wrestling with Minoru Fujita and Ikuto Hidaka. Today the three of them were able to learn how to wrestle as a trio together. However Kodaka also used a Shiranui during today’s match and he did it for a good reason. Kodaka wants to have a tag match against Fujita & Hidaka on 12th July. Who is Kodaka’s partner going to be? Naomichi Marufuji! Fujita & Hidaka accepted the challenge.

The stress Hercules Senga has been getting from his feud with the Best Stretchmen finally made him snap. He came out dressed in a banana suit and wanted to be called Banana Senga. SAGAT kind of joined in by painting his own face yellow. Senga blocked the Double Stretch Kick by pushing SAGAT into the Stretchmen’s way. Senga then Cradled Best Stretchman V3 to steal the victory. This match was supposed to end the feud but this new turn in the story made V3 demand one more match on 17th July then another final match on the 28th! They will do their final match as many times as they want!!!

For some reason Gouma Ryu thought that wrestling barefoot would give him an advantage over Akiyori Takizawa. It didn’t work.

1. Akiyori Takizawa defeated Takato Nakano with the Sleng Teng (11:42).

5. NWA World Jr. Heavyweight & International Jr. Heavyweight Titles: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Ikuto Hidaka with the Isamuashi Zan (19:07).
*V1 for Isami Kodaka.

BASARA’s first visit to Sapporo was highlighted by Isami Kodaka match against Ikuto Hidaka with the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title and International Jr. Heavyweight Title both on the line. Kodaka came out wearing the same kind of “flame” mask that Hidaka had worn sometimes. Kodaka was able to bounce back from losing the Union MAX Title earlier in the week by successfully defending his remaining singles titles. After the match Kodaka joked that everybody makes Hidaka look like a fool. Hidaka corrected him and said only he and Yuko Miyamoto do. Kodaka told him that it was an honour to fight him at BASARA’s first Sapporo show. He then gave him 6,000 yen to pay for the “flame” mask he wore for his entrance.

Ryota Nakatsu tried to give Naoki Tanizaki a Cross Armbreaker but it was countered into a Reverse Implant. Nakatsu was able to kick out but a regular Implant after that was enough to keep him down.

7. Union MAX Title & DOVE World Title: Naoki Tanizaki (D/c) defeated Isami Kodaka (U/c) with the Libido (16:27).
*Isami Kodaka fails in V6. Naoki Tanizaki becomes the 10th Union MAX Champion! V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Dove Pro Wrestling is back with a vengeance and they now have BASARA’s championship! Naoki Tanizaki went into the Double Title main event with Gunso in his corner representing Dove Pro. Isami Kodaka came out by himself with the Union MAX Title around his waist. Tanizaki kicked out of the Diving Double Knee Drop as well as the European Clutch. He dropped Kodaka with the Implant several times throughout the match and they eventually took their toll on Kodaka. Tanizaki finally had him beat with the Casanova knee strike followed by the Libido knee lift for the three count. Tanizaki said the title win was for all of the Dove Pro believers who cheered for him today. He feels confident that he has beaten the best that BASARA has to offer. When he said this, Takumi Tsukamoto came out and challenged him to a MAX Title match. When Tanizaki and Gunso left, Kodaka called all of the BASARA home wrestlers to join him in the ring. He thinks Tsukamoto can bring the Union MAX Title back to BASARA but Kodaka still wants to fight Tanizaki one on one again some day. The show is over and BASARA is starting over. They may have lost today but they will come out of this stronger than they were before!

There is something about Ryota Nakatsu that Ikuto Hidaka seems to like. He feels like he is now Nakatsu’s 45 year old uncle and they will still be wrestling each other until Nakatsu can outkick his uncle. Hidaka admits that if today wasn’t a tag match, he would have lost to Nakatsu after he took his V Slider finisher. Minoru Fujita was also impressed by Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine today.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi returned from a long absence as a changed man. He took up yoga to recover from his dislocated shoulder and travelled to India to learn more about the practice. For his first match back Hiroshi went face to face with Osamu Nishimura. Quite a big opponent for him but he stayed calm throughout. Hiroshi meditated while he was put in submission holds to withstand the pain. Soon Nishimura meditated too and they were both inactive for so long that the referee began to count them towards a double knockout. Both stirred and went back to wrestling until Nishimura locked in a Sleeper Hold. Hiroshi tried to meditate again but ended up losing consciousness. Nishimura then easily rolled him into a Cobra Twist to pin him. He told Hiroshi afterwards that he too has visited India many times to learn yoga. The most important lesson is even if the body is destroyed, the soul will continue to live many lives. Hiroshi said he was happy to learn from a guru today. They then sang a song together.

The return of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro rivalry means the return of SAGAT and Gunso fighting each other in Hardcore Matches. SAGAT lost like he tends to but this time it was FUMA who got pinned. SAGAT gave Jun Kasai a Brainbuster from the ladder but Gunso immediately cut him off with the Diving Guillotine Drop. FUMA fought off his opponents until Gunso took him down with a chair shot. Kasai gave FUMA the Reverse Tiger Driver then Kasai & Gunso hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Diving Guillotine Drop to FUMA at the same time for the win. Kasai ripped off FUMA’s heavy metal shirt after the match and threw it into the crowd.

Fuminori Abe had a spirited fight against Minoru Tanaka. During their early exchanges Abe told Tanaka “I believe the B in BASARA stands for Batibati!” then he hit him with strikes. Abe later kicked out of the Superfly at one but was quickly put down with the Sliding D. Tanaka shook Abe’s hand after the match but Abe slapped Tanaka across the face in response. Tanaka didn’t mind it. He said that it was a cheerful match and he likes to face wrestlers with Abe’s style of fighting. He didn’t know what to expect because he never saw anything from Abe before today. It was fun though and if the wrestlers have fun with what they are doing then the fans will have fun watching them.

The rest of the BASARA wrestlers were pitted against the Metal Family in a 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match. The weakest of the BASARA team Gouma Ryu took a beating but Yasu Urano was there to keep the numbers even. Ryu was able to eliminate Trans-Am ★ Tanaka by gutsy luck. Tanaka kicked him from the apron but as Ryu fell he tripped Tanaka and pulled him to the floor with him. That left Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi as the final two. They fought on the apron until Tsukamoto knocked Ryuichi to the floor with the Thrust Kick to win the match for BASARA!

Takato Nakano tried to pin Manabu Hara with several different Cradles but a Cross Armbreaker ended the match in Hara’s favour.

BASARA “VAJRA 31 ~NERIMA WHITE SNAKE~”, 12/03/2017
Tokyo Nerima Coconeri Hall
241 Fans

1. Hagane defeated Daichi Kazato with the Ryanhei (8:23).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Fuminori Abe defeated Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when Abe pinned both Ryu and Maruyama with the Rokudenashi Kick (12:07).
3. IRON PRIEST Vs Double ★ Trans-Am: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Shinya defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo when Hiroshi pinned Kubo with the Perfect Plex (11:28).
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Gunso & Kabuki Kid defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & SAGAT when Gunso pinned SAGAT with the Diving Guillotine Drop With A Ladder (13:37).
5. Special Tag Match: Dick Togo & Ikuto Hidaka defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Togo pinned Nakatsu with the Diving Senton (18:18).
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.

Now Kodaka has a chance to get some revenge back in BASARA.
