BASARA “VAJRA 49 ~FEAST~”, 19/10/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
202 Fans

1. Yusuke Kubo defeated Takato Nakano with a Gedo Clutch (9:38).
2. A Professional Wrestling Agency Which Can Be A Matrix: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Tatsuhiko Yoshino when Hagane submitted Ryu with a Walls Of Jericho (7:37).
3. Senga’s Strategy To Recapture Oosugi!: Hercules Senga & Atsushi Maruyama defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi when Senga pinned Stretchman with a Rope Assisted School Boy (9:01).
4. Doki! Hardcore Can 6-Man Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Masamune defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, SAGAT & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Urano with the Let’s Combine (17:25).
5. Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA & Fuminori Abe when Kodaka pinned Abe with the Isamuashi Zan (17:59).

It looked like Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi would work well together as a team but tension grew between them thanks to unwanted blind tags. Kodaka won the main event for the team anyway. Kodaka asked Ryuichi for a handshake after the match but Ryuichi gave him the Perfect Five instead. Ryuichi told Kodaka “You’re not sexy! You’re not American! My girlfriend is Ariana Grande!” and then he left the ring. Kodaka’s day wasn’t over yet because FUMA, Ryuichi Sekine and Takumi Tsukamoto all came out demanding a Union MAX Title match against him. Kodaka told them he will defend the title on 26th November but against who will be up for them to decide. Kodaka doesn’t care how they figure it out as long as they stop making so much noise with their arguing. When they all left, Kodaka said he was now standing alone under the heavens, a familiar situation for him. Well, alone except for the ring announcer Rikiya Shindo also being there. Shindo gave him a beer and Kodaka closed out the show holding a toast for himself.

It took him a few attempts but Ryuichi Sekine was able to submit Yasu Urano to the Let’s Combine. Most of his attempts were stopped by Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT throwing the steel cans at him including a Con-Chair-To style attack with an extra can placed over Sekine’s head.

Hercules Senga used the ropes for leverage to pin Best Stretchman V3. Despite being cheated, Stretchman agreed to give Tsutomu Oosugi back to Senga but only when Senga can beat him without cheating. Stretchman then recommended the audience to stay warm by doing stretching exercises because Japan is entering its coldest winter in 60 years.

Trans-Am ★Hiroshi announced the date for Hiroshi Aid, a special benefit show to help him while he is recovering from his shoulder injuries. The event takes place at Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR on 29th November. Hiroshi no longer needs to wear a shoulder brace but he has not been medically cleared to wrestle yet.

Now that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is on friendly terms with the BASARA wrestlers, he gets to team with Isami Kodaka.

Hercules Senga is so upset that his regular tag partner Tsutomu Oosugi is now with Best Stretchman V3 that he is convinced Oosugi was kidnapped. Senga enlisted Atsushi Maruyama to help him save Oosugi. Whether or not Oosugi actually needs saving is up for debate which just so happens to be something else Maruyama can do.

Nagoya City Mid-Sports Center

1. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs SAGAT

7. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) with the Isamuashi Zan (16:35).
*Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi fails in V4. Isami Kodaka becomes the 9th Union MAX Champion!

15 years isn’t slowing down Isami Kodaka one bit. He regained the Union MAX Championship on his very own 15th Anniversary show! Kodaka’s cry from the main event’s video package was “Enjoy Wrestling!” while the defending champion Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted back with “Freedom!” The video also featured comments from Ryuichi Kawakami who has been constantly compared to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for some reason. In a reverse of roles, it was Ryuichi who offered a handshake at the start only for Kodaka to kick his hand away. Kodaka later asked for a handshake but Ryuichi turned him down and shouted “Wooooo!” Kodaka kicked out of the Perfect Plex and fought his way out of the Perfect Five. An Exploder Suplex took Ryuichi out of his game and a bunch of Buzzsaw Kicks and Isamuashi Zan kicks won the match for Kodaka. The new champion said Ryuichi fought like a cyborg. He then asked him to send his thanks to Kawakami. Kodaka thinks Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and Ryuichi Kawakami should combine to form the Perfect Soldier. Ryuichi’s response in broken English was “Thank you so much!” Kodaka then talked about his own career. It can go another 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years. Kodaka wants to be like The Great Kojika who is still wrestling at 75 years old. However, Kodaka is also dedicated to BASARA. If BASARA ever goes away then that means retirement for Kodaka! He will never let that happen.

HUB got into the IRON PRIEST spirit by rocking out on air guitar with FUMA and Yusuke Kubo for their entrance. FUMA even used HUB’s stinger as a guitar while they were beating on Yasu Urano. Kubo & HUB wiped out Urano & Yuji Hino with dives but the party ended when Ryuichi Sekine countered FUMA’s Reverse Power Slam and rolled it into the Let’s Combine submission. When FUMA tapped out, Urano rushed over to hug Sekine. In the backstage interview, Sekine pointed out that he never touched HUB at all during the match because he hates snakes. He also heard all of his large sized shirts and higher sold out at the merch table. None of the smaller shirts sold which annoyed him because it meant no women were buying them, only men.

In the battle of current gen yankee versus new gen yankee, Yuko Miyamoto defeated Ryota Nakatsu. Miyamoto was put in danger many times by Nakatsu’s submissions, most notably when the Fire Thunder was countered into a Cross Armbreaker. Miyamoto eventually hit the move but Nakatsu fought through the pain to get back up to his feet. However, Nakatsu was knocked down again with a Lariat and put away with the Moonsault. Miyamoto was surprised to discover that BASARA had a wrestler so focused to target his right arm like Nakatsu did. He thinks it is possible for Nakatsu to grow into a great wrestler.

If it was made out of steel, it was allowed to be used in the Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match. Takumi Tsukamoto gathered around some of his friends from Big Japan to battle the Dove Pro team and their heavy bass music that played throughout the match. A steel box was smashed over everyone’s heads a lot. Gunso grabbed a shard of metal and dug it into Tsukamoto’s forehead to make him bleed. Kabuki Kid then created a pile of chairs for Tsukamoto to be slammed onto. However Tsukamoto got some revenge on Kid with a Fisherman Buster. Jaki Numazawa fended off the Dove wrestlers by throwing chairs at them. Masashi Takeda also used the steel box to keep the Dove wrestlers away while Tsukamoto and Gunso fought to the end inside the ring. Tsukamoto Suplexed Gunso from a ladder onto a pile of metal objects below. He then hit the Zudon for the three count, making B FAULTLESS JUNKY’S the winners. Even though a winner was declared, both sides hinted that the conflict between them isn’t over yet. Tsukamoto wasn’t satisfied with the victory.

SAGAT had the impossible task of facing Daisuke Sekimoto one on one. Even with the hard work and crowd behind him, SAGAT fell to the Deadlift German Suplex. Sekimoto gently bowed to SAGAT after the match and left the ring. SAGAT was offered help by Takato Nakano to be taken out of the ring but SAGAT refused and left under his own power. SAGAT said it was impossible for him to beat Sekimoto this year. It will be impossible for him to beat Sekimoto next year. But some year, SAGAT will beat him! Doesn’t matter if it is so long in the future that Sekimoto will be a grandfather when it happens. It will happen!

The recent sale of DDT and all of its franchises has left Gouma Ryu feeling worried. The entire company is a legitimate business now and there is so much that has to change as a result. Ryu can no longer tolerate sneak attacks because it is illegal. He also wants wrestlers to be careful with their kicks because they can cause injuries. Mineo Fujita cut him off with a sneak attack Dropkick to start their tag match. Ryu tried to strike Fujita with his lawbook but Fujita stopped him with a Shining Wizard. Fujita picked up the lawbook but was told by the referee to get rid of it. Fujita dropped the book onto Ryu’s stomach by accident then pinned him with the Swanton Bomb.

Fuminori Abe channeled the abilities of Munenori Sawa to trap Takato Nakano in an Octopus Hold the same way Sawa did. Masamune kept Shiori Asahi at bay to stop the move from being broken.

The new World Jr. Champion will be having some title defences in DDT for as long as he holds the belt. Daisuke Sasaki’s first challenger is Shuichiro Katsumura from Ganbare☆Wrestling. Can Katsumura get revenge for Ohka and bring the belt back to Ganpuro?

Producer Danshoku Dino will be putting mystery people in the NωA’s corner. I’m unsure if their roles are meant to be ring seconds or lumberjacks.

DDT “TOKYO GAME SHOW 2017 – 4GAMER.NET X DDT – DAY 1” Results

September 22, 2017

DDT “TOKYO GAME SHOW 2017 – 4GAMER.NET X DDT – DAY 1”, 21/09/2017
Chiba Makuhari Messe – 4Gamer.net Booth
??? Fans

1. Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima defeated Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko when Sakazaki pinned Takigawa with the Magical Girl Splash (10:40).
2. Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Masahiro Takanashi & Yuki Ueno when Endo pinned Ueno with the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb (9:42).
3. Antonio Honda defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with a Japanese Leg Roll Clutch (7:18).
4. Konosuke Takeshita & Diego defeated Mizuki Watase & Daiki Shimomura when Takeshita submitted Shimomura with a Dragon Sleeper (7:03).
5. Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Takato Nakano when Kodaka pinned Nakano with the Diving Double Knee Drop (10:21).

Day 1 of DDT’s trip to the Tokyo Game Show was headlined by a BASARA match. The bout was sponsored by the upcoming Switch title “Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes” and featured an appearance by the game’s creator Suda 51. He entered the ring to “Real American”. Isami Kodaka told Suda that he usually brings a sword into the ring with him but did not have one today. So he asked Suda if he could borrow a beam katana from him. Suda didn’t have one with him. Kodaka then asked him to rank the wrestlers in the United Assassins Association as he commentated on the match. Kodaka appealed to Suda’s wrestling tastes by doing the Pro Wrestling LOVE pose, hitting the Shining Wizard and calling out Bruiser Brody when he did the match winning Diving Double Knee Drop. Afterwards Suda told Kodaka they will work out a way for him to be referenced in “Travis Strikes Again”. Suda’s idea is to use an existing Fire Pro Wrestling name for his character. So when you play the game look out for Blade Musha (or Blade Warrior), the son of Isami!

Match #4 was a collaboration with “Ryu Ga Gotoku Kiwami 2” (“Yakuza Kiwami 2”) and “Hokuto Ga Gotoku”, the Fist of the North Star game being made by the same team. The series producer revealed that Kiwami 2 will feature appearances by Riki Choshu, Tatsumi Fujinami, Genichiro Tenryu, Keiji Muto and Masahiro Chono. The DDT wrestlers all asked if they could be in the game too. Danshoku Dino encouraged all of them to use the games as inspiration for their match to impress the producer. Mizuki Watase & Daiki Shimomura brought chairs into the ring and acted like gangsters while Konosuke Takeshita and Diego unleashed their inner dragons to fight them off. Takeshita especially took some moves from Fujinami’s moveset, obviously including the ones with Dragon in the name, to win the match. The producer was impressed but sadly the game is too late in its development to add in any more characters. However there will be a performance audition taking place for “Hokuto Ga Gotoku” in the future. Takeshita mentioned he is exactly the same height and weight as the main character Kenshiro. He said he’ll go to the audition with the goal of becoming a hidden character in the game.

Before Match #3 began, Danshoku Dino spoke about playing “LovePlus EVERY”. He asked Antonio Honda and Nobuhiro Shimatani who their favourite girls are in the games. Their answers led to them arguing over who was better and it led into their match. Dino calmed things down after the match by telling Honda and Shimomura that they can both download their favourite girls in LovePlus EVERY. Yes, this match was product placement.

Nonoko made sure to find the location of the Bushiroad booth and had it in her line of sight when she did the Boinmaker in her match.


BASARA “VAJRA 47 ~FEAST~” Results

September 19, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 47 ~FEAST~”, 19/09/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
203 Fans

1. Ryuichi Sekine defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with the Let’s Combine (8:10).
2. A Professional Wrestling Agency Which Can Be A Matrix: Gouma Ryu defeated Kuishinbo Kamen with the Super Long Stupid Moonsault (8:15).
3. Betrayal Of Senga? Danger Team Best Stretch: Hercules Senga & Takato Nakano defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi when Senga pinned Stretchman with a Cradle (8:55).
4. 3 Way Tag Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT defeated FUMA & Yusuke Kubo and Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano when Ryuichi pinned Kubo with a Perfect Plex (15:56).
5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Blessed Edition~: Ryuji Ito & GENTARO defeated Isami Kodaka & Ryota Nakatsu when GENTARO pinned Kodaka with a Lou Thesz Back Drop (18:50).

Isami Kodaka was put through the wringer by two of his seniors as his 15th Anniversary series continued. He & Ryota Nakatsu were defeated by GENTARO & Ryuji Ito. Kodaka was crushed by Ito’s Dragon Splash and was then given a Lou Thesz style Back Drop by GENTARO. Kodaka fought through the pain to rise back to his feet but another Back Drop put him down for the count. GENTARO apologised to Kodaka because he forgot it was his 15th Anniversary. GENTARO remembered seeing Kodaka fight Kengo Mashimo in one of his first wrestling matches for K-DOJO. He is amazed to watch him grow into a great wrestler. Ito congratulated Kodaka too but then bragged that he and GENTARO are both celebrating their 18th Anniversary this year.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi used Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s Perfect Plex to win the 3 Way Tag Match. Hiroshi praised him for using the move backstage afterwards. After all, it is the perfect finishing move. Ryuichi said that today he blew his “American Big Magnum”. Next month at Korakuen Hall, Ryuichi’s “Big Magnum” will blow off Kodaka’s thin arms!

Hercules Senga was thrilled to bring Speed Of Sounds back to BASARA but was annoyed to learn that he would be fighting against Tsutomu Oosugi instead of teaming with him. When he pinned Best Stretchman V3 to win the match, Senga demanded he give Oosugi back to him. Stretchman refused and told Senga to bring a stronger partner next time. He wants to fight Senga as many times as possible. Senga said he will and he promised he would rescue Oosugi eventually. Oosugi seemed okay with the whole situation. To him it was just a match.

4. IRON PRIEST Vs Trans-Am ★ Family: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Trans-Am ★ Tomato, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT when Kubo pinned SAGAT with the Death Metal Roll (14:19).
5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Important Edition~: Isami Kodaka defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with the Isamuashi Zan (12:33).
6. Yuji Hino & Yasu Urano defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Hino pinned Sekine with the Fucking Bomb (20:23).

Yuji Hino is an intimidating figure and Ryuichi Sekine was hesitant to interact with him before, during and even after the main event. Sekine needed some time to recover after Hino pinned him with the Fucking Bomb. When he finally got the courage to speak, Sekine thanked Hino for the times he gave him advice and for being supportive. Hino was surprised by Sekine’s gesture, shook his hand and helped pick him back up to his feet.

There was a reason why Isami Kodaka Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino was advertised as an “Important Edition” of Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary series. Kodaka said BASARA has many friends but Yoshino is an important one. Yoshino called Kodaka the best big brother he could ever wish for. When the time comes for Kodaka to retire, he will call Yoshino to play an important role for him. But that’s not happening anytime soon. Kodaka’s turning 36 this year and he aims to wrestle until he turns 75, the same age that The Great Kojika is now. Kodaka announced that his next match for his anniversary series will be on 19th September and will involve GENTARO and Ryuji Ito.

The Trans-Am ★ Family unveiled their newest member Trans-Am ★ Tomato for their match against IRON PRIEST. He and his teammates Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT all did the Tomato Dance for their entrance together. Tomato riled up IRON PRIEST by claiming that “America Is Hip Hop!” FUMA fought him off by describing his own moves as pesticide.

Heijitsu Mask was prevented from appearing at the show today because he is only allowed to wrestle on weekdays. When he arrived at the airport this morning he was stopped by security. TEPPEI took his place in Match #3.

Fuminori Abe wrestled in full monk garb, even wearing a bald cap because he didn’t want to shave his head. He offered advice to Best Stretchman V3 and said he is becoming overwhelmed by his responsibilities. He then tried to offer pamphlets to Stretchman while they wrestled. Abe won the match when he stuck a mysterious piece of paper on Stretchman’s face, rendering the superhero unconscious. When Stretchman woke up he felt refreshed and invigorated. He has been reborn as New Best Stretchman!
