BASARA “BASARA 101 ~BANQUET~”, 24/07/2019

Team Fujita: Minoru Fujita, Takumi Tsukamoto, Ryota Nakatsu, Yasu Urano, SAGAT, Daiki Shimomura, Masato Kamino, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, X

Even though Isami Kodaka won this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~, he gave the prize money over to Minoru Fujita so he could produce his own BASARA show. Fujita came up with the idea of a team challenge called “Banquet Fight 2019” between himself and Kodaka. A partial card has been made after the two teams were drafted by the captains. Due to an odd number of wrestlers available, Fujita’s team is one man short so the missing name in the main event is a mystery for now.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “LAST DANCE IS FOR ME 2019”, 17/07/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
141 Fans

1. If It Fights, It Is a Man! The Gate Of Confrontation Has Finally Been Opened!!: Ultra Soki & Yuta Suzuki defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Shuhei Washida when Soki pinned Washida with the Nishime Otoshi (10:55).
2. Kochoranbu! Ganjo Vs Actwres girl’Z All Round Fight Round 2: Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE defeated Momo Tani & Ayumi Hayashi when Haruhi pinned Tani with the 79.5MHz (10:38).

4. Ganpro Vs P.P.P. Full Battle: Keisuke Ishii defeated Mitomi Masayuki with the High Angle Double Arm DDT (10:32).
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Shuichiro Katsumura (c) defeated Hiroshi Yamato with the Ninja Choke (19:22).
*V2 for Shuichiro Katsumura.
6. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles – 20th Champions Decision Match: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol defeated Guts Ishijima, Masked Mystery & Shota when Mongol pinned Shota with a Cross Body (13:06).
*GPW become the 20th GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions!

Miss Mongol thanked Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari for giving her the opportunities to wrestle even at her age. Before the show took place Mongol contacted Atsushi Onita for permission to close out the show the same way he used to. Onita gave her his blessing but after she did it, the Real GUTS Army attacked them. Shota said today’s result was a fluke and he demanded some rematches to take place on 10th and 11th August. Guts Ishijima won’t be at the 10th August show because he already has a booking with 666. Shota promised to bring along a replacement.

Minoru Fujita approached Shuichiro Katsumura after the semi-main and asked for a match with him. Fujita originally promised he would never come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling but he really wants to wrestle Katsumura. They agreed to have a match on 10th August but the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title will not be on the line.

Naoshi Sano beat Chikara clean then challenged Mitsuo Momota to a match. However Momota had another idea. It is clear that he and his son cannot beat Sano so rather then fight him again, they should all team up instead! That would be a better way for them to study Sano’s strength. Sano and Chikara were both puzzled by the idea but Momota convinced them to try it out.

Ken Ohka had some big news for Kouki Iwasaki. Next month he is going to have a couple of opponents from Big Japan coming in! Iwasaki faces Akira Hyodo on 10th August and Ryuichi Kawakami on the 11th!

Ohka and Shuhei Washida attempted to Bottle Cap Challenge before the show began but they both failed. So they changed the rules into a water drinking contest. Washida beat Ohka.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “N.O. 2019”, 16/06/2019
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR
119 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Aim For First Victory! Young Warrior Vs Song Writer!: Mitomi Masayuki defeated Shuhei Washida with the Baby Clutch (8:12).
2. Australian Single Match! First Time Visiting Japan Vs Living In Japan: Choun-Shiryu defeated Champ Phoenix with La Magistral Cradle (8:19).
3. Flying To Saitama Vs Flying Cross Armbreaker!: Keisuke Ishii & Moeka Haruhi defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & HARUKAZE when Ishii pinned HARUKAZE with the Double Arm Clutch Driver (13:31).
4. Oji Chief Rivals! Ganpro & PochaJo Allied Forces Vs Real GUTS Army & Yoshimura Pro Wrestling Allied Forces – Scramble Bunkhouse 6-Man Tag Team Street Fight: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol defeated Guts Ishijima, Masked Mystery & Shota when Ohka pinned Shota with a Thunder Fire Power Bomb (11:44).
5. Grasp The Best WONDERFUL LIFE! Iwasaki’s Greatest! – Southside Wrestling World Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Beast Bomber (16:41)
*V6 for Shigehiro Irie.

Shigehiro Irie’s tour of Japan with the Southside Wrestling World Title has lead to a string of defences in a short period of time. The sixth and latest defence was against Kouki Iwasaki at Ganbare☆Wrestling. Irie said that he will be going back to Europe with the title but he hopes to wrestle Iwasaki again. However Ken Ohka entered the ring and demanded a shot at the title on 17th July. Irie said he won’t be in Japan that day. Ohka then asked for a match in August. Irie couldn’t commit so Ohka then told Irie to challenge him the next time he comes back to Japan. Irie then suddenly knocked out Ohka with the Beast Bomber.

The combined powers of the GPW alliance succeeded in beating Real GUTS Army in a violent clash. Yumehito Imanari came out wearing a leather jacket similar to Jon Moxley’s “MOX” jacket but with “SEX” on the back instead. Ohka was busted open but with the help of Imanari & Miss Mongol, was able to pin Shota with the Thunder Fire Power Bomb. After the match Ohka demanded Guts Ishijima to bring back the retired GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles that used to be defended in Guts World until its closure. Ohka explained that life is a fight with guts. If GUTS do not want to be in a title match then they have no guts! Ishijima accepted the demand and will bring back the titles on 17th July.

Hiroshi Yamato challenged Shuichiro Katsumura for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Yamato said he has now wrestled in over 50 different wrestling promotions and if he becomes the Independent Jr. Champion he can then raise the belt’s prestige and also the wrestling scene at large by defending it in various different promotions.

Champ Phoenix made the mistake of taking Choun-Shiryu lightly, treating him as an easy opponent and leaving his guard open so Shiryu could pin him with La Magistral Cradle. Shiryu told Phoenix that he’s been living in Japan for 15 years so he should have been treated with respect.

The rookie Shuhei Washida is showing more aggression in his matches. He refused to shake Mitomi Masayuki’s hand before their match and even had to be held back by the referee at one point. However Masayuki took over and used a modified Camel Clutch called the Baby Clutch to make Washida submit.

Masayuki announced before the show that he is forming his own promotion called P.P.P. Tokyo. He said he learned to work hard in Ganpro and will use that spirit to make this new project succeed. P.P.P. will have a business relationship with Ganpro. The first sign of this is Ganpro hosting a match at the debut P.P.P. show in Shinjuku FACE on 30th September.

2. Haru HARU Vs Actwres girl’Z! Four Flowers Bloom In BumB!: Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE defeated Himeka Arita & Misa Matsui when Haruhi pinned Matsui with the 79.5MHz (13:33).

5. Inevitability Or Fate’s Mischief? Team Drift And DNA Clash In Ganpro!: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Ishii pinned Watase with the Flying Kneel Kick (18:14).

Keisuke Ishii noticed that the main event ended after 18 minutes and 14 seconds, the same exact amount of time as his match with Tetsuya Endo for the KO-D Openweight Title a few weeks ago. He also said it was so much fun and exciting to wrestle Shigehiro Irie again. He now wants to wrestle him one on one.

The new war between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Real GUTS Army went ahead today. Guts Ishijima & Shota won the first battle over Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura in the middle of the show but they made their presence felt again later. When the show ended, Ohka’s speech in front of the fans was cut short by an attack by GUTS. Ishijima was about to give Ohka the Facebuster when Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol came to the rescue. With the enemy sent fleeing, Imanari called for an alliance between Ganpro and Pocchari Joshi. Together they can be called GPW! The three challenged Guts-gun to a trios match on 16th June. Ishijima accepted with Shota and Masked Mystery as his partners. Ishijima also said that Yoshimura Pro Wrestling is on his side in this war.

Imanari’s Pocchari Joshi project will show up again at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 20th August.

6. Road To WRESTLE MATUSYAMANIA! Special Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Mizuki Watase
7. King Of DDT 2019 – Final: X Vs X

Four are left in the King Of DDT and there is plenty of history to be found in the semi-final match-ups. Kazusada Higuchi has always treated Konosuke Takeshita as a strong opponent and this time won’t be any different. Takeshita is aware that the occasion may trigger something in Higuchi to change him into something even stronger so his plan is not to trigger it. HARASHIMA and Soma Takao were allies in Smile Squash until Takao betrayed HARASHIMA to join DAMNATION. Takao wants nothing more than to win this tournament and fight for the KO-D Openweight Title in Ota Ward Gymnasium because he was born and raised in Ota.

Even though Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto will be getting a KO-D Tag Team Titles match next month, Hirata is unsure if the combined power of himself and Donaruto can work. He asked for a Handicap Match against Daisuke Sasaki to test the team out and determine if they are good enough to become champions.

Guts Ishijima has created a Guts World revival in a bid to unite the independent scene under his influence. Ken Ohka doesn’t trust Ishijima’s ability to do that given his reputation of quitting and failing many of his previous projects.

Moeka Haruhi, HARUKAZE and Shuhei Washida will be on the show.

DDT “WRESTLE MATSUYAMANIA 2019”, 02/06/2019
Ehime World Trade Center

1. There ☆ Is A Dream! Ryutaro Watanabe (DDT Matsuyamania Affiliation) Big Match!: Hideki Suzuki Vs Ryutaro Watanabe
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata & Maku Donaruto
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

Tetsuya Endo ambushed Yukio Sakaguchi at the contract signing to send a message to his challenger. Nobuhiro Shimatani provoked Sakaguchi to distract him while Endo grabbed a chair for the attack. Endo also gave Sakaguchi a Low Blow before signing the contract. To add extra insult to injury, Shimatani said he would sign the contract on Sakaguchi’s behalf. He signed the words “I’m Sorry” into the column meant for Sakaguchi.

The failed DDT trainee is back for another match. Ryutaro Watanabe trained with DDT back in 2012 but injuries prevented him from ever debuting. It wasn’t until DDT came to his hometown in Matsuyama last year when he finally got his debut match. With DDT coming back to the region they want him to wrestle against Hideki Suzuki. They wanted Watanabe to face the toughest opponent available and Suzuki fits that description to a tee. The two have been in the ring together before as part of a recent Hard Hit tag match that happened in March. The time they wrestled each other was short but it was enough for Watanabe to realise how large the wall is he has to climb.

Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
145 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Team Irootoko: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Mitomi Masayuki & Shota Nakagawa when Ishii submitted Masayuki with the Double Arm Neck Lock (10:00).
2. GOLDEN GANBARE 2019: Miyako Matsumoto & Makoto defeated Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE when Matsumoto pinned HARUKAZE with the Miyako Clutch (8:12).
3. Momota Parent And Child Vs Naoshi Sano Round 2: Mitsuo Momota defeated Naoshi Sano with the Saber Chop from Chikara (8:21).
4. Shota The Brutal Wind That Blows: Shota, Guts Ishijima & Masked Mystery defeated Ken Ohka, Shuichiro Katsumura & Shuhei Washida when Ishijima submitted Washida with the WAR Special (17:07).
5. Dangan Senshi, Attack On Ganpro!: Masato Tanaka defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Sliding D (15:38).

Masato Tanaka thanked Yumehito Imanari for inviting him to wrestle in Ganbare☆Wrestling today. He brought up memories of Imanari training in one of the ZERO1 dojos long ago. Imanari explained to the fans that although he was never registered to ZERO1 he did get permission from them to train in their dojo. The two agreed to having another match sometime and Imanari says he is now a student of the DANGAN GYM.

Normally Shota is a Ganpro wrestler but today he represented GUTS along with Guts Ishijima & Masked Mystery. They were victorious over the Ganpro side but Ken Ohka felt something was off about Ishijima’s intentions. Ohka is trying to make pro wrestling a major sport and he wants to unify the indies to do it. But Guts World has closed down and it’s replacement Pro Wrestling GOING-UP didn’t last either. Now that Guts Ishijima is in Ganbare☆Wrestling will he quit here too? Just what is it about Ishijima and wrestling promotions that involve the letter G? Ishijima said he loves indie wrestling and he will be the one to unify it. He promised to come back to Ganpro next month to continue the rebirth of GUTS.

Chikara stood in his Mitsuo Momota’s corner so he could his father face Naoshi Sano one on one. But during the match Sano went out of the ring and dared Chikara to hit him. When Chikara wouldn’t, Sano knocked him down. He then made Momota hit the referee by accident with a Lariat. When that happened Sano brought in a chair but Chikara cut him off with the Saber Chop, allowing Momota to pin him when the ref recovered.

Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase will take place on 2nd June.

DDT “LAST HEISEI, FIRST REIWA PRO WRESTLING”, 30/04/2019
Tokyo DDT Pro Wrestling Ochanomizu Dojo
0 Fans

1. Special 10-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, HARASHIMA, Fuminori Abe, Ken Ohka & Yuka Sakazaki defeated Tetsuya Endo, Antonio Honda, Ryota Nakatsu, Shuichiro Katsumura & Miyu Yamashita when Takeshita pinned Honda with the Fable (18:28).

DDT wanted to celebrate the end of Japan’s Heisei era and the beginning of the Reiwa era so they brought together the best of the best to their new dojo in Ochanomizu. The plan was to do a special 10-Man Tag match that started before the clock struck midnight and ended in the early hours of the morning. On one side was the team of champions from each brand in the DDT family. We had the KO-D Openweight Champion Tetsuya Endo and DDT Extreme Champion Antonio Honda representing DDT. BASARA was represented by the Union MAX Champion Ryota Nakatsu. The Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Shuichiro Katsumura represented Ganbare☆Wrestling and the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion Miyu Yamashita was there for Tokyo Joshi Pro. The other team was made up of established non-champions from the same brands. There was Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA for DDT, Fuminori Abe for BASARA, Ken Ohka for Ganpro and finally Yuka Sakazaki for Tokyo Joshi.

Before the match began the champion team posed for a group photo, which annoyed their opponents. Honda quickly tripped on the ropes and injured his leg. He was about to declare his retirement due to injury but first wanted to tell his story of Gongitsune. It was all a ruse for Honda to poke everyone on the other team in the eyes. When the match got going we got plenty of unusual pairings like Endo against Sakazaki, Yamashita against Ohka and Nakatsu against Takeshita. The ending came when Abe stopped Honda’s Diving Fist Drop with a Rabbit Punch. Ohka hit Honda with the Fire Spear, Sakazaki landed the Magical Girl Splash and HARASHIMA followed up with a Swan Dive Body Press. With Honda all but out, Takeshita finished him off with the Fable to win the last match of Heisei and the first match of Reiwa!

Endo didn’t want to stick around afterwards and quickly left the ring when the match was over. The rest stayed behind and gave out thank you messages of support to the audience watching on DDT UNIVERSE.
