BASARA “BASARA 91 ~BETTER BREAK~”, 21/03/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Ryota Nakatsu Vs Isami Kodaka

The win-loss record for Sento Minzoku hasn’t been perfect since Isami Kodaka’s return. The Sparky group have been victorious over them a couple of times, enough for Kodaka to shy away from the idea of challenging for the Union MAX Title. However in a twist Ryota Nakatsu approached him for a match with the championship on the line. Nakatsu’s run as champion is approaching a high level of success among the title’s history. A defence against Kodaka will bring it to another level.


BASARA “BASARA 88 ~LIKE A ROSE~” Results

February 10, 2019

BASARA “BASARA 88 ~LIKE A ROSE~”, 10/02/2019
Tokyo Seijo Hall
178 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Jun Masaoka defeated Fuminori Abe, Takato Nakano & Masato Kamino when Masaoka pinned Nakano with a Thrust Kick (13:13).
2. Sakigake!! Iron Family Vs Best Stretchmen Full Scale Single Match: Stretchman Man defeated SAGAT with the Cancun Tornado (8:41).
3. Sakigake!! Iron Family Vs Best Stretchmen Full Scale Single Match: FUMA defeated Best Stretchman Amazon with the Iron Maiden (9:42).
4. Sakigake!! Iron Family Vs Best Stretchmen Full Scale Single Match: Best Stretchman V3 defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi with an Axe Bomber (11:01).
5. Yusuke Kubo defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Modified Metal Roll (13:23).
6. Sparky Vs Sento Minzoku!: Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura when Nakatsu pinned Shimomura with the V Slider (17:55).

Isami Kodaka commended his partner Daiki Shimomura for improving so much and evolving as a wrestler. He also praised Ryota Nakatsu for defending the Union MAX Title three times. Kodaka thought things went so bad for Sento Minzoku today that it was time to leave the ring for Sparky to celebrate. However Nakatsu stopped him and said he wants his next title defence to be against Kodaka! BASARA is returning to Korakuen Hall on 21st March so they decided that is the perfect time to have the match.

Moments after Yusuke Kubo won his match against Ryuichi Sekine, he was attacked by Jun Masaoka! Just like last time Masaoka tried to unmask Kubo. He was stopped by the other members of the Iron Family. Kubo challenged Masaoka to a match on 26th February. Kubo will have turned 32 years old by the match takes place so he warned Masaoka that he will have powered up by one!

The Best Stretch store has been saved! A three match series between the Best Stretchmen and the Iron Family was tied going into the final match. Stretchman Man defeated SAGAT then FUMA beat Best Stretchman Amazon. In the deciding bout Best Stretchman V3 went up against Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. During the match Stretchman’s hood slipped off leading Hiroshi to point out it is really Daichi Kazato under the costume. V3 kicked out of the Riki Lariat and removed his hood again before hitting an Axe Bomber to win the match. The Best Stretchmen celebrated until V3/Kazato called to Hiroshi. As they were fighting he realised that stretching and yoga go along with each other perfectly. The Best Stretch store has some empty slots in its schedule so he made an offer for Hiroshi to teach yoga classes there in his spare time.


BASARA “BASARA 87 ~FEAST~” Results

January 29, 2019

BASARA “BASARA 87 ~FEAST~”, 29/01/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
250 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura defeated Masato Kamino & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Kamino with the Let’s Combine (9:16).
2. Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano & Jun Masaoka by Disqualification when Masaoka unmasked Kubo (7:54).
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Ryuji & Gouma Ryu defeated Best Stretchman V3, Best Stretchman Amazon & Stretchman Man when Hiroshi submitted V3 with a Scorpion Lock (8:53).
4. Steel Can Hardcore Death Match: Takumi Tsukamoto defeated FUMA with the Running Zudon (13:03).
5. Sento Minzoku Vs Sparky!: Isami Kodaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa when Kodaka pinned Takizawa with a Cradle (12:19).
6. Union MAX Title: Ryota Nakatsu (c) defeated Fuminori Abe with the V Slider (16:57).
*V3 for Ryota Nakatsu.

Ryota Nakatsu stands tall after his third Union MAX Title defence. His battle plan for Fuminori Abe was to combat his submission holds with German Suplexes and Buzzsaw Kicks until he could hit the V Slider to win. He didn’t expect to be punched in the face so hard but he has no bad feelings towards Abe over it. Abe said that three years ago they had a match together that he lost. He lost again today but he got more in against Nakatsu this time. Both Nakatsu and Abe praised each other and before Abe left he said he will beat Nakatsu within a year so Nakatsu better be prepared.

Isami Kodaka pinned Akiyori Takizawa with a Cradle thanks to Minoru Fujita giving Takizawa an Enzuigiri from the ring apron as he ran the ropes.

FUMA set up a trap to get the advantage on Takumi Tsukamoto. When it was time for FUMA’s entrance, SAGAT came out instead. While Tsukamoto argued with him, FUMA snuck into the ring and attacked Tsukamoto from behind with a chair. SAGAT stuck around to hit Tsukamoto with a Lariat while FUMA distracted the referee. More chairs were used until the steel cans were brought out. It was all going well for FUMA until he missed the Heavy Metal Anthem, crashing onto the chairs after Tsukamoto rolled out of the way. Tsukamoto hit FUMA with the cans and won with the Running Zudon. The two glared at each other after the match without either saying a word.

The ownership rights of the Best Stretch store was on the line in Match #3. Best Stretchman V3 tried to cancel the stipulation because the store is run independently from DDT but the match went ahead. For the second show in a row Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi channelled Riki Choshu to do the Lariat and the Scorpion Deathlock on V3 to win the match. V3 protested by saying he didn’t give up (he did) then demanded a 3 Vs 1 Handicap Match next month. Hiroshi agreed and picked FUMA & SAGAT as his partners. Stretchman Man instead demanded a three match series on the next show. They all agreed to the following three matches: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Stretchman Man, FUMA Vs Best Stretchman Amazon and Best Stretchman V3 Vs FUMA. Whichever side wins the most gets the Best Stretch store!

Things got very heated between Yusuke Kubo and Jun Masaoka during their match. Masaoka targets Kubo’s mask by untying the strings. Then when the match was at its peak, Masaoka grabbed Kubo by the mask and pulled it off! The referee called for a disqualification. Masaoka didn’t care and hit the unmasked Kubo with a Thrust Kick while Kubo was trying to cover his face. Kubo returned fire and gave Masaoka a Back Drop. The two had to be pulled apart by their tag partners but Masaoka had the last say by holding up Kubo’s mask.

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Sanshiro Takagi Vs Soma Takao

The history between Sanshiro Takagi and Soma Takao has been coming back to the surface lately. Takagi thinks that Takao is treading water and limiting himself by being a member of DAMNATION. Back when they were teaming together as nWJ, Takao had all of the potential in the world and Takagi wants him to be like that again. Takao doesn’t buy it and is satisfied with being a DAMNATION wrestler. Before they face off at Sumo Hall they will have a singles match at a special free show at Shin-Kiba 1st RING. All tickets for the show have already been given out.

1. Pedro Takaishi Retirement Match: Pedro Takaishi Vs X

What is there to say about Pedro Takaishi? No really, what is there? Muscle in its prime days came and went before this blog existed so the importance of this guy is unknown to me. All I know is he is a business man who learned capoeira and joined Muscle to became a pro wrestler. Now in his 50s, Takaishi will now call an end to his pro wrestling career. Or at least Super Sasadango Machine is making him do it as a selling point for this show.

So I looked up the website that was made to promote the show. Oh God my eyes! Oh and don’t think I haven’t noticed where they got the pictures. So that’s where the views for my Muscle Roster page are coming from…

Keisuke Ishii is ready to defend Ganpro’s honour against Minoru Fujita. Most of the roster have fallen to Fujita so now it’s up to Ishii.

As of 26th January Shuichiro Katsumura has a full time member of Ganpro.

The Sento Minzoku feud has led to a reunion between Ken Ohka and Isami Kodaka. The two have a long history together from their Union Pro days and plenty has changed with both since they were last in the ring together.

4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku In Itabashi ~ Texas Tornado Singapore Cane 6-Man Tag Match: Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura defeated Keisuke Ishii, Yumehito Imanari & Baliyan Akki when Shimomura pinned Akki with the Swanton Bomb (15:25).
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura (c) defeated Shota with the Ninja Choke (31:01).
*V1 for Shuichiro Katsumura.

Shuichiro Katsumura and Shota went through a 30 minute war over the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Both wrestlers were careful in their approach to the match since neither wanted to make a mistake and open themselves up to counter attacks. Katsumura would target Shota’s left arm and it paid off when the damage prevented Shota from climbing the turnbuckles. Shota was almost beaten after he took a Benadryller but he was able to use a rope break to avoid being pinned. Shota tried to strike back at the champion but Katsumura was able to slip behind him and apply the Ninja Choke to sxore his first successful defence.

Katsumura commiserated Shota after the match then called on the Ganbare☆Wrestling roster to come out. He said he was going to be the one to pull up Ganpro in 2019 and today proved it. He won in the main event for the second show in a row while the rest lost their matches to Sento Minzoku. He asked Ken Ohka if he was ashamed about this. Ohka said it’s only January and Ganpro just starting the year off a little behind. Katsumura told Ohka he will be even more embarrassed because as of today Katsumura is joining Ganpro full time! He sent a warning out to Sento Minzoku. Watch out because Ganpro now has Shuichiro Katsumura on their side!

The trio of Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Daiki Shimomura defeated Keisuke Ishii, Yumehito Imanari & Baliyan Akki in a Texas Tornado Singapore Cane 6-Man Tag Match. Kodaka called out to Ohka after the match wanting to know if he was hiding from him. Ohka got in the ring to face Kodaka until Ishii stepped in. Ishii asked for a match with Kodaka but Kodaka asked him to challenge Minoru Fujita instead due to Fujita’s history with Ganpro. Fujita was confused by the idea at first but agreed to it. He’s beaten Ohka, he’s beaten Imanari and he’s beaten Moeka Haruhi. All that is left for him to do in Ganpro is to beat Keisuke Ishii!

Haruhi put up a good fight against Fujita despite the obvious result. She kicked out of the Tombstone Piledriver so Fujita had to pull out a Spear to beat her. Fujita said he thought this match was a stupid idea but now he understands that he just had a match against a wonderful wrestler. When he left, Haruhi said she spent a long time thinking about today’s match. Fujita’s words have encouraged her to become stronger so she can stand proudly in the centre of this ring.

DAMNATION has a clean trios win over ALL OUT which qualifies them for a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. Daisuke Sasaki made it his goal in 2019 to get everything he wants and that includes more championships. Taking the 6-Man Tag Titles from Konosuke Takeshita will be a big momentum shaker for their Sumo Hall match too.

10. KO-D Openweight Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

More #STRONGHEARTS participation has been added with T-Hawk facing Akito one on one. Akito has been a thorn in #STRONGHEARTS’s side that they haven’t been able to get rid of during their time in DDT.

Maku Donaruto will be on the show but it hasn’t been decided which match he will be in yet. The obvious choice is the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title Battle Royal. The other idea I have is he’s a part of whatever OsuMAN Dankon is supposed to be.

*Chinsuke Nakamura becomes the 1,343rd champion.

A packed monorail train of 24 fans got to take a trip with DDT across the Chiba line. The Battle Royal began with Sanshiro Takagi, Hiroshi Yamato and Konosuke Takeshita duking it out as the monorail left Chiba Station. With slams prohibited for the safety of the monorail and everybody onboard, the wrestlers had to think up of other ways to fight. Takeshita quickly came up with the idea to hang off of the train handles to Dropkick his opponents without having to land on the floor.

When the monorail made its first stop at Chiba Park Station a salaryman walked on board reading a newspaper. It was Ippanjin Munenori Sawa! Takeshita attacked Sawa and purposely ripped the sleeve on Sawa’s suit jacket. Sawa however used one of the train handles to trap Takeshita in a Wristlock.

Akito & Yuki Iino entered the match at Sakusabe Station. Iino put Yamato in an Argentine Backbreaker while Akito traded Anklelocks with Sawa.

Chaos broke out when another man in a suit started attacking the wrestlers and acting lewd. It was Danshoku Dieno! The wrestlers were put into a linked chain of Headscissors for Dieno to do the Danshoku Nightmare along the entire monorail.

With no eliminations yet the car got even more packed when DISASTER BOX got on board at Anagawa Station. HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Yuki Ueno got caught up in Dieno’s shenanigans. It still continued when Takeshita hit Dieno with the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title belt. Dieno just fell into Iino and got his hands all over him even more.

ALL OUT were so focused on Dieno that they didn’t see DAMNATION coming on board at Dobotsukoen Station. Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Nobuhiro Shimatani kicked every member of ALL OUT as well as Dieno out of the monorail and the doors closed on them, eliminating ALL OUT from the match!

Isami Kodaka was ready for a fight when the monorail reached Mitsuwadai Station. For a few moments we got the dream matchup of HARASHIMA Vs Kodaka inside a monorail. Meanwhile Ueno put Endo in a Cobra Twist.

Familiar music played at Tsuga Station for the entry of the one, the only, Chinsuke Nakamura! Kodaka hit Nakamura with a knee to the back of the head and pinned him for the quick elimination. YeahOh!

Gota Ihashi got on board at Sakuragi Station. The other wrestlers welcomed Ihashi by forming arches with their arms for Ihashi to walk through. The arches guided Ihashi to the door at the other end of the monorail. Kodaka and Endo then kicked him out before the door closed to eliminate him.

Chaos broke out again when everyone decided to gang up on Shimatani. Even Takao and Endo got involved even though Shimatani is on their side! Takagi and Sawa also clashed with each other during the melee.

The final entrant was Antonio Honda at Chishirodai Station. He immediately wanted to give up because he was standing out in the cold for so long. Yamato dropped his guard while listening to the story so Honda used Gongitsune to pinch him in the nipple.

The monorail was still at the Chishirodai Station so some of the wrestlers took the fight outside to the platform. Yamato, Owashi and Honda found a ladder then suddenly began singing a song from Galaxy Express 999. This lured DJ Nira out from the shadows to grab the ladder with the other three and join in with the song. Kodaka and Ueno jumped on top of the group and used the ladder to pin all of them at the same time for the three count.

Nearby Sawa hit Takao with the Shining Wizard and placed him on a table. Takagi climbed a ladder beside it and put Takao through the table with a Diving Body Press. That was enough for Takagi to eliminate him by pinfall.

The eliminations then came thick and fast on the platform. Endo did a Moonsault from the stairway railing onto Takagi and Sawa to pin both of them.

Kodaka then rolled up Endo with a School Boy to pin him with some extra help by HARASHIMA & Ueno.

Shimatani dashed from one end of the platform to the other yelling “I am Nobu!” Whatever he wanted to do didn’t happen because Ueno rolled him into a Cradle for the three count.

Kodaka went and found a tag team partner to face HARASHIMA & Ueno. It is the Chiba Monorail mascot Mono-chan! HARASHIMA was surprised to discover how easily Mono-chan overpowered him.

Kodaka tried to Brainbuster HARASHIMA down a flight of stairs but HARASHIMA reversed it! Kodaka tumbled down the steps while Ueno chased after him. When Kodaka reached the bottom it was an easy three count for Ueno.

So the match came down to HARASHIMA and Ueno as the final two. Ueno shook HARASHIMA’s hand but it was a trap to roll him into a pin. HARASHIMA got out of it and hit Ueno with a High Kick. He then hit the Somato to win the match!

The match was over but HARASHIMA was suddenly approached by an exhausted looking Takeshita. He ran the entire way from Dobotsukoen Station chasing after the monorail! Chinsuke Nakamura snuck up behind Takeshita and hit the Low Blow. Chinsuke then pinned Takeshita with a School Boy to become the new Iron Man Champion! Chinsuke ran off yelling “YeahOh!” HARASHIMA called today the best wrestling match on a type of transportation DDT has done yet.
