2. Osaka Vs Hokkaido Ganbare☆Wrestling International Match: Sayaka Obihiro defeated Atsushi Maruyama with a Backslide Pin (12:42).

4. Flames, Heart, Repeatedly: Mitomi Masayuki defeated Shibata with the Salty Splash (8:42).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Ken Ohka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi when Ohka pinned Namaguchi with the Spear Of Fire (16:17).

Alliances old and new were formed throughout today’s show because the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament is taking place in April. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling were defeated in the main event and Kenso Ohka placed the blame on Osamu Namiguchi. Kenso dropped a surprise and said he’ll be teaming with someone else in the tournament. He’ll be teaming with KAZMA SAKAMOTO! After Kenso left, Ken Ohka asked Shinichiro Tominaga to be enter the tournament with him. Tominaga politely declined because he already asked Hi69 to team with him. When the show was over Ohka went searching for a tag partner. Atsushi Maruyama agreed at first but then remembered he is already booked elsewhere. Both Takafumi Ito and Shuichiro Katsumura asked to team with Ohka but he couldn’t choose between them. So Ito and Katsumura decided to team together instead. Finally Ohka got a Facetime call from Ai Shimizu. She is currently in Toyama, Ohka’s hometown. Shimizu is training to become stronger and went to Toyama to learn Ohka’s secrets. To prove it she told Ohka she was on the call with his dad! When the call ended Ohka accepted that he wouldn’t find a tag partner today.

The atmosphere for Mitomi Masayuki Vs Shibata was tense as there was still some uneasiness in their friendship. Masayuki wanted to bury the hatchet but Shibata kept rejecting him. It wasn’t until the match ended that Shibata saw the light and agreed to reform Enjo-gun with Masayuki.

Yumehito Imanari was in a good mood because he just purchased a guide to Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling written by Billy Robinson. Imanari studied the book and predicted he would win his match with the Double Arm Suplex. Whatever he studied didn’t stick because he had to flick through the book again before the bell rang. His attempts to do the Double Arm Suplex failed. Ito countered the move into a Manjigatame then Tsurumaki tapped him out with the Back Facelock. Ito and Katsumura got into a brawl after the match. Ito challenged Katsumura to a singles match then admitted he was getting bored with their current situation.

Sayaka Obihiro began her match with Maruyama by warning him that she’s been taking Shorinji Kempo lessons. He didn’t take her seriously. In fact, Marutama told Obuhiro he’s been studying her matches in preparation and listed all of her signature moves as proof. He challenged her to perform those moves and then pin him so he could kick out of them. He succeeded in kicking out of all of them but an unexpected collision ended with Obihiro falling on top of him and getting the three count. Afterwards Obihiro said she is from Hokkaido, Maruyama is from Osaka and Ohka is from Toyama. She now wants to wrestle opponents from all the other prefectures in Japan.

Ohka approached Yukihiro Abe after the opening match and asked him if he had a partner in mind for the Tag League. Suddenly Keisuke Ishii appeared and did a Double Dropkick with Abe to Ohka. Ishii thinks he himself is a good choice for Abe to team with. Ishii wants to enter a tag league because it reminds him of his favourite AJPW Real World Tag League match, Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama Vs Stan Hansen & Akira Taue from 1999. Now Ishii & Abe are thinking of a team name. They will either be Return Of Young Drama or Memory Of Young Drama.

Another team was formed during the show. Nobuhiro Tsurumaki wants to team with Chikara. The two fought each other before when Tsurumaki under the mask as Mars Spector. Chikara earned his respect during those matches.

3. Revenge Match: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with an Inverted Crab Hold (7:27).
4. Recovery And Memory Of K: Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi defeated Hi69 & Shinichiro Tominaga when Oishi pinned Tominaga after the Cactus Flower (13:03).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura when Namiguchi pinned Ken Ohka after Kenso Ohka did the Spear Of Fire From The Heart (18:30).

The Twin Ganbare War continued with the original promotion and its counterfit battling each other in a Tag Team Match. Both teams came out to “Bad Communication” and a ringside brawl was quick to happen. Shibata interfered to help out Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling but Ken Ohka got rid of him and hit Osamu Namiguchi with the Spear Of Fire. The referee counted the pin until Shibata pulled him out of the ring. Namiguchi gave Ohka the Lanakila-X then Kenso Ohka hit his version of the Spear Of Fire. Namiguchi got the pin while Shibata held onto Shuichiro Katsumura outside the ring. Kenso gave the referee a Vertical Drop Brainbuster after the match. Shibata was introduced as the newest member of Shin Ganpuro. When they left, Ken Ohka tried to rally his fans. He’s spent four years building Ganbare☆Wrestling and no matter how bad things get he will always be proud of the company. He’s not going to quit if he doesn’t have any talent. If that was true he would have quit wrestling ten years ago. He challenged Shin Ganpuro to a 6-Man Tag for 11th February. It will be Ken Ohka, Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki Vs Namiguchi, Kenso Ohka & Shibata!

Shinichiro Tominaga’s re-introduction to K-DOJO continued with a tag match with him and Hi69 against Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi. Although he lost, Tominaga is getting noticed. Oishi pointed out that everyone in the ring was an ex-K-DOJO wrestler. Asahi shook his head in denial then told Tominaga to get ready to visit Chiba for their participation in K-DOJO’s upcoming Tag League.

Mars Spector refused to let go of the Crab Hold on Chikara after beating him. The referee was able to break them up and Yumehito Imanari then ran in to confront Spector and challenge him to a match next month. Without saying a word, Spector accepted. During the closing speeches, Imanari said he’s been secretly training at the DDT dojo specifically for this challenge.

Ai Shimizu is now zero for two in her trial series after losing to Hiroyo Matsumoto. Her third match in the series will be against Cassandra Miyagi!

Imanari was excited to team with Bambi again but the feeling was not mutual. Either way they won their match when Bambi hit Masayuki with the Standing Shining Wizard then Imanari followed up with a Busaiku Knee Kick that now has a name based around his big girl fetish.

Shota was brought into the ring at the end of the show. He is getting knee surgery that will put him out of action for the rest of the year. All the wrestlers on the roster who previously had surgery gave him words of encouragement and wished him the best.

6. Ken Ohka 15th Anniversary Debut Memorial Match: Ken Ohka defeated Atsushi Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire (15:24).

From the Eternal Young Lion to the Crying Charisma of Ganbare☆Wrestling, a lot has happened to Ken Ohka in his 15 years as a pro wrestler. To celebrate his 15th Anniversary in wrestling, Ohka wanted a match against Atsushi Maruyama. Maruyama has been an inspiration to Ohka ever since he saw him wrestle a big match in 2008. Ohka was also a big Osaka Pro fan before he joined DDT. He kicked out of the Tiger Suplex and pinned Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire. Maruyama said he envies Ohka for making so many friends with his clumsy wrestling while he himself has been scattered around the wrestling scene ever since he quit Osaka Pro. Now it is Ohka who inspires Maruyama because Maruyama now wants to create his own wrestling group. If Ganpuro wants to become a major sports brand then Maruyama’s group will become a major entertainment brand. His rival will be the Yoshimoto Kogyo company!

Ohka had one more announcement to give at the end of the show. His first child was born today! The fans chanted “Dad!” at Ohka as the show ended.

The team of Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi tried to steal all of the attention with their Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling match. They wouldn’t stop talking about how the Shin Ganpuro fans are the best in the world and the Shin Ganpuro wrestlers are the best in the world too.

Even though he was able to wrestle and win his match today, Shota had some bad news to give. He will be going under surgery to his right knee in January and he is expected to miss nearly all of 2017. Ai Shimizu said wrestling Shota taught her the importance of not giving up. Her next match in her series will be against Hiroyo Matsumoto on 21st January.

Shinichiro Tominaga announced he will be teaming with Shiori Asahi as part of the BO-SO Golden Tag League in K-DOJO next year. Ohka said Tominaga will continue to tag with Hi69 in Ganpuro, booking those two against Asahi & Makoto Oishi on 21st January.

Yumehito Imanari used company money to buy female Santa costumes from Don Quijote for the women to wear during their match. Only Bambi wore her costume. Imanari then tried to help out Bambi & Manami Kanda whenever he could. That backfired when Bambi used her whip and hit Imanari by mistake. That allowed Maya Yukihi to pin Kanda without any interruption.

Rocky Kawamura screamed “Adrian!” before knocking out Chikara with a Running Punch.

Ganpuro will once again be providing matches for the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO on New Year’s weekend at Saitama Super Arena.

Also they both had their debut matches within months from each other, Maruyama debuted in June 2001 and Ohka debuted in December. Ohka cannot imagine what kind of match they will have.

The beautiful opponents for Bambi & Manami Kanda come from Ice Ribbon. Yumehito Imanari isn’t impressed even though the match was his idea. He likes his women to be bigger than Maya Yukihi & Tequila Saya so he’s rooting for Bambi & Kanda.

142 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Real Tiger Mask Vs Rikidozan III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Chikara with the Jumping Cross Armbreaker (7:25).
2. Ganpuro Special Mixed Tag: American Balloon & Sayaka Obihiro defeated Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu when Obihiro pinned Shimizu with the Bath (10:09).
3. G-COSMOS 2016 in Prince: Takafumi Ito defeated Rionne Fujiwara with a Crooked Headscissors (10:30).
4. Double Main Event I: Shota & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Yukihiro Abe & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shota pinned Tominaga with a Kido Clutch (16:07).
5. Double Main Event II – Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Osamu Namiguchi & Kenso Ohka defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with a Spear (12:24).

The show began with Osamu Namiguchi welcoming everyone to Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling. He said the theme of Shin Ganpuro is major pro wrestling and the main event would prove that. All of the regular Ganbare☆Wrestling matches happening before the main event were just toilet breaks as far as he was concerned. Ken Ohka stormed out and said he will show Namiguchi what the real Ganpuro is like in the main event.

Namiguchi had a big surprise in store for Ohka. The second member of Shin Ganpuro was revealed to be KENSO! However, KENSO came out to Ohka’s entrance music and wore matching gear. He is now Kenso Ohka! Not only did KENSO steal Ohka’s gimmick but he stole his finisher as well when he pinned Yumehito Imanari with the Spear. KENSO calls it a major Spear that is completely different from the fake one Ken Ohka does. Shuichiro Katsumura unexpectedly came out to confront Shin Ganpuro. He doesn’t see himself as a Ganpuro wrestler but he likes it here and won’t stand for this copycat coming in to ruin things. He invited Ken Ohka & Imanari to come train with him in his gym. Ohka said that Ganpuro stands for Ken Ohka, Ganpuro stands for Yumehito Imanari and Ganpuro stands for Shuichiro Katsumura. Together they will fight against Shin Ganpuro!

Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu both felt sorry for American Balloon’s sagging man boobs. Balloon’s man boobs came in handy when he used them to stop Shimizu from giving Sayaka Obihiro the Kamikaze. Obihiro then rolled Shimizu over for the win. Ohka was critical of Shimizu losing the match and encouraged her to try harder for her next match. Ohka said by the time Shimizu’s Ganpuro trial series is done she will become a worthy pro wrestler. Her next match in this series will be against Shota.

Ganpuro will run a special 15th Anniversary show for Ken Ohka at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 22nd December. Ohka has a certain opponent in mind that he is eager to wrestle against but cannot guarantee if he can even negotiate with him. Imanari wants to put together a special women’s match for the show. His original idea was Bambi & Manami Kanda Vs Viper and somebody else. However it seems that Viper is unavailable on that date. Ohka promised Imanari that he will find two beautiful wrestlers to take on Bambi & Kanda.
