Meanwhile the nutjobs in BASARA are thinking they might be small enough to fit under the cracks and run their shows as usual. Tomorrow’s show seems to be going on as scheduled. The most recent update from them today is a safety message for those with tickets.

DDT “PROTECT THE ELDERLY FROM THE NEW CORONAVIRUS! KYOU CLINIC PRO WRESTLING”, 30/03/2020
Saitama Medical Corporation Anzukai Kyou Clinic
1. Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Shinya Aoki & Makoto Oishi Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO & Mike Bailey Vs Gorgeous Matsuno & Gabai Ji-chan
How in the fuck did this not get cancelled?!? The change here is going from a 6-Man Tag to a 4 Way Tag with the addition of The Moonlight Express.
BASARA “BASARA 127 ~KAGUNDZUKA NO SAKURA~”, 05/04/2020
Chiba 2AW Square
1. Takato Nakano Vs Yasu Urano
2. Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Shigehiro Irie
4. Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine Vs Kengo Mashimo & Shiori Asahi
5. Ryota Nakatsu & Daiki Shimomura
6. Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga Vs Fuminori Abe & Tetsuo Usui
Fuminori Abe is the new Union MAX Champion but he only won it because Masahiro Takanashi suffered a freak injury two minutes into their match. Takanashi is giving Abe his support because hey, this is the pro wrestling business. Injuries happen all the time and winning a championship that way doesn’t make it any less legitimate in Takanashi’s eyes. Abe has promised to remain the champion until Takanashi recovers from his fractured fibula.
If this Chiba show goes ahead, Abe could be fighting against the current IRON FIST Tag Champions. That match will also be Tetsuo Usui’s first proper main event (excluding a bonus multi-man tag back in January).
