4. I Will Not Give Up Tag Tournament – Semi Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Takafumi Ito defeated Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Chikara when Katsumura submitted Chikara with a Jumping Crucifix Armbreaker (8:37).
5. I Will Not Give Up Tag Tournament – Final: Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Chikara defeated Yumehito Imanari & Bambi when Chikara pinned Imanari with the Saber Chop (5:45).
6. World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament – Final: Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO defeated Ken Ohka & Ganbare The Great when Kenso Ohka submitted Ken Ohka with a Figure Four Leg Lock (17:32).

The second show of the day featured the remaining rounds of the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament. It began with Ken Ohka & Ganbare The Great entering the ring to the Big Japan theme song. Ohka wondered why they were using that music. Ganbare said he chose the song because they were taking part in a big Japanese pro wrestling show. The song played again when they left the ring and the crowd chanted “Dai Nippon!” at them.

In the semi-finals Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling eliminated Shinichiro Tominaga & Hi69 while Ohka & Ganbare advanced over Yukihiro Abe & Keisuke Ishii. In the final, KAZMA SAKAMOTO unmasked Ganbare, revealing that it really was Minoru Fujita under the mask. Kenso Ohka targeted Ken Ohka’s leg effectively enough for him to tap out to a Figure Four Leg Lock. Kenso complained that there was no trophy then praised SAKAMOTO for being best, kindest tag wrestler ever. When they left, Ken Ohka called for Fujita to come over to him. Fujita put his mask back on and went back to his Ganbare character. Ohka admitted he knew it was Fujita all along and that their defeat was not his fault. Ohka said he has never won a tournament but more opportunities will come along. He then joked that Fujita can go to over Big Japan. Fujita threatened to quit instead even though he doesn’t know why he would do that.

A second tournament took place throughout the show but this one was done using Losers Advance rules. I Will Not Give Up Tag Tournament featured all of the teams that were eliminated in Round 1. Both Enjo-gun and Shuichiro Katsumura & Takafumi Ito won their matches so they survived the embarrassment of being in the final. That went to the teams of Yumehito Imanari & Bambi and Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Chikara. Chikara overcame his hesitation to hit Bambi to win the match, using as many Saber Chops as his heart desired. Imanari & Bambi were “rewarded” with the title of Weakest Team. Imanari blamed Bambi for their failure because she recently lost weight. To make up for this Imanari challenged Bambi to a Double Sweet Death Match in Osaka on 30th April. Imanari wants to fill Bambi with 15,000 calories of candy!

1. Space Of Ganbare: Andromeda KEN defeated Space Galaxy Warrior Andros with the Earthbound Twist (6:53).
2. World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shinichiro Tominaga & Hi69 defeated Yumehito Imanari & Bambi when Tominaga pinned Imanari with the JK (9:55).
3. World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament – Round 1: Ken Ohka & Ganbare The Great defeated Nobuhiro Tsurumaki & Chikara when Ohka pinned Chikara with the Fire Spear (8:14).
4. World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament – Round 1: Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO defeated Mitomi Masayuki & Shibata when Ohka pinned Masayuki with a Diving Elbow Drop (16:33).
5. World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament – Round 1: Yukihiro Abe & Keisuke Ishii defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Takafumi Ito when Fujita pinned Katsumura with a Minoru Fujita Style Cradle (16:02).

Ganbare☆Wrestling held two shows in one day for the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament. The first show contained the entire first round. In the main event Yukihiro Abe & Keisuke Ishii bested Shuichiro Katsumura & Takafumi Ito. Ishii called it a superb victory especially since it has been 6 years and 7 months since he last teamed with Abe. According to Abe, the bond between them that was formed back in the Monthly Young Communication days will lead them throughout the tournament.

Enjo-gun reunited for the tournament but fell in the first round to Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling. The end came when KAZMA SAKAMOTO knocked Shibata out of the ring. Kenso Ohka kept the pressure on Mitomi Masayuki with Brainbusters until a Diving Elbow Drop finally got the pin.

The big question in the build up to the tournament was who would Ken Ohka’s partner be? We found out when a masked man wearing a shirt with a giant F on it appeared. He is called Ganbare The Great. Height, weight and nationality unknown. Also he apparently cannot speak Japanese. Everyone in the ring loudly wondered if it was Minoru Fujita in disguise but Ganbare would not answer them. He and Ohka worked well enough to earn a victory, hitting Chikara with a Double Spear.

Yumehito Imanari had an unusual idea for motivation when he teamed with Bambi. He would sneak up from behind, grab the part of her hips where her skin was exposed and scream “Belly Meat Power!” Whatever he gained from doing that didn’t work and the team lost to Shinichiro Tominaga & Hi69.

Despite losing the opening match, Space Galaxy Warrior Andros claimed that peace on Earth was preserved thanks to his match with Andromeda KEN.

The annual Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Battle Royal is back! DDT’s answer to both the Royal Rumble and the Money In The Bank is used to determine the next couple of KO-D Openweight Title challengers throughout the summer.

Royce Isaacs will be making his DDT debut on this show. Isaacs participated in the DNA Grand Prix last year and was impressive enough to be brought in for a main tour in DDT.

Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Dick Togo

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The Union MAX Title now belongs to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and his first defence takes place in Korakuen Hall. It is Ryota Nakatsu’s desire to win the title because he wrestled in Union Pro for the last year of the brand’s existence but never had the chance to chase after that championship.

Earlier this month Ken Ohka won the World Jr. Heavyweight Title over in K-DOJO. The title lineage can be traced all the way back to FMW. Ohka wants Atsushi Maruyama to be his first challenger because he has been an inspiration to Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Also if Ohka wants to be a strong champion he needs to defend the belt against strong challengers so he’s giving Maruyama the home field advantage by holding the title match in Osaka!

1. Love Call Wrestling: Yukihiro Abe defeated Chikara with a Minoru Fujita Style Cradle (8:09).
2. Osaka Vs Hokkaido Ganbare☆Wrestling International Match: Sayaka Obihiro defeated Atsushi Maruyama with a Backslide Pin (12:42).

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.

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.
