1. Hercules Senga defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Yellow Dragon (9:05).
2. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: FUMA & SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa when FUMA pinned Nakano with the Heavy Metal Anthem (11:55).
3. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Isami Kodaka & Yoshihisa Uto when Oosugi pinned Kodaka with the Tsukinoishi (13:16).
4. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Yusuke Kubo when Hara submitted Kubo with a Chickenwing Armlock (16:01).
5. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Urano with the Let’s Combine (27:41).

In a big surprise, the two wrestlers from last year’s winning team were both eliminated in the first round this year. Isami Kodaka’s first problem was his partner Yoshihisa Uto was disturbed by Best Stretchman V3 and didn’t know what to do with him. Kodaka’s other problem was Tsutomu Oosugi being completely ready for him. Oosugi got the upset pin over Kodaka to advance the Best Stretch team to the semi-final. Oosugi said he is now a trainer with a cause and he challenges Kodaka to put the Union MAX Title on the line against him. Kodaka agreed to it and the match will happen on 3rd March. All Kodaka asks is for Oosugi to come in his regular wrestling gear instead of the Best Stretch uniform he wore for today’s match.

Takumi Tsukamoto also had a bad go in his 1st Round match. He was taken out by Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu. That left Yasu Urano alone to be picked apart by Cavalry at the end. Sekine struggled to stand after the match because of damage to his left knee but he and Nakatsu were able to brag about their recent good match record in the venue.

The Metal Family had mixed results in the two remaining 1st Round Matches. FUMA & SAGAT were able to beat the rookie team of Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa. However Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Yusuke Kubo lost to Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe. Ryuichi gave his condolences to Kubo backstage and acted like Kubo died in the ring. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi complained about how much he hates shoot style wrestling. Everyone should be doing powerful American style wrestling instead. They will leave it up to FUMA & SAGAT to win the rest of the tournament for them.

The IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT semi-final match-ups are Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe and FUMA & SAGAT Vs Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi. The semi-finals and final will happen on 19th February.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi announced his first match back from injury will take place on the 3rd May Korakuen Hall show. He’s been recovering from a separated shoulder since last summer.

4. Ryuichi Sekine defeated Fuminori Abe with the Let’s Combine (12:28).
5. New Year Elimination 8-Man Tag Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT defeated Isami Kodaka, Tank Nagai, Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano (15:39).

5d. Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi eliminated each other by Ring Out (23:28).
5e. SAGAT eliminated Isami Kodaka with the Goregrind (25:39).

The combined forces of IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family was too much for BASARA to handle in the main event. Isami Kodaka brought in Tank Nagai from K-DOJO to help out but even that wasn’t enough to beat the Metal Family. In the end FUMA & SAGAT were the last men standing. FUMA gave Kodaka the Heavy Metal Hammer and SAGAT finished him off with the Goregrind. FUMA told Kodaka that IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family won today because they unite together. He then went on a tangent about the band HELLOWEEN getting back together for a tour and complained that he can’t get a ticket for their Japan gig. So he is using his anger over that as motivation to win the Union MAX Title from Kodaka on 8th January!

The Metal Family wanted to raise a toast to close out the show but all of the beer in the venue was sold out. They had to raise a toast with tea instead.

Fuminori Abe’s first match as a full time BASARA wrestlers was enough of an important occasion for Ryuichi Sekine to wear regular wrestling gear again. That is something he has not done since his Union MAX Title match back in November. Sekine countered the Octopus Hold into the Let’s Combine to get the submission victory. Both he and Abe smiled to each other after the match. Sekine then gave him a playful push.

Ryota Nakatsu and Manabu Hara continued to fight each other after Match #3. They had to be seperated from each other by their tag partners and other wrestlers.

For the court case between Hercules Senga and Tsutomu Oosugi, Senga used a magic marker to draw a hairline on his head and wore suspenders with a bowtie. Best Stretchman V3 argued that Senga was infringing a TV broadcaster’s copyright with his costume. When they finished arguing about that it was time to sort out the reason why they were all there. Senga wants Oosugi to stop teaming with Stretchman and reform Speed Of Sounds. Oosugi needed Gouma Ryu to plead his case. Senga argued that Stretchman and his stretching techniques were too dangerous. His witnesses to prove this were Fuminori Abe and Isami Kodaka. Abe had a dead leg and Kodaka said his right arm s in an even worse state after spending time in the Best Stretch parlour. Stretchman went away and Daichi Kazato took his place. Kazato stretched both Abe and Kodaka and miraculously their injuries went away! Senga protested and it led to a fight breaking out. Oosugi unexpectedly joined Senga’s side to clear the ring. They shook hands until Oosugi rolled Senga into a School Boy to pin him. Senga admitted defeat and will now consider working with the Stretchman team.

It took around nine months to get here but Takato Nakano earned his first singles win today by beating Akiyori Takizawa. Nakano caught Takizawa in mid-air with a Cradle for a nearfall but used the momentum to School Boy him into another pin. That one was enough to get the three count.

10. Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai – Final: Hideki Suzuki defeated Fuminori Abe with the Double Arm Suplex (12:58).

The ruleset for the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament led to some unique finishes in the early rounds. With no ropes attached and Ring Outs in effect, seven of the nine matches in the tournament ended with a wrestler losing by falling out of the ring one way or another. Isami Kodaka beat Naoki Tanizaki with a Knee Strike knocking Tanizaki out of the ring. Colt Cabana was eliminated when Yuko Miyamoto kicked out of the Superman Dive. Whether intentional or not, the kickout pushed Cabana out of the ring. Fuminori Abe was put in a Figure Four Leg Lock by Akito but Abe shifted both of them over the apron and grabbed on to the corner post so Akito would hit the floor first. Riho used her tricky spinning cradles to roll Yasu Urano to the edge so when he kicked out of the move he fell out of the ring in the process.

In Round 2 Ayako Hamada and Hideki Suzuki took part in their first matches of the day. Hamada faced Kodaka and they ended up fighting by the corner post. After some switching back and forth, Kodaka finally got to kick out Hamada to advance to the next round. Suzuki was able to throw out Miyamoto but Miyamoto grabbed on to Suzuki’s tights and struggled to avoid the floor. Miyamoto lost his grip but was able to pull down Suzuki’s tights. Still, in the end the bare-bottomed Suzuki was declared the winner.

In the semi-finals Kodaka fell to Abe in the first non-Ring Out finish of the show. This time the ring ropes were attached so it was more difficult to be forced out of the ring. Instead both Kodaka and Abe aimed to win by knockout. It led to dueling Rabbit Punches between the two until Kodaka could not take anymore and failed to answer the 10 count after a knockdown. Riho got to face Suzuki who is the wrestler she wanted to fight the most in the tournament. Suzuki was left dizzy by Riho’s quick attacks but countered a 619 to knock her out of the ring.

Any questions about whether or not the Metal Family could get along were seemingly answered in the BASARA Offer Match. IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family worked together to beat the combined Cavalry & BASARA-gun side. FUMA got the pin and is now so confident that he wants to fight Kodaka for the Union MAX Title on 8th January. His reason for the date is because FUMA last won the MAX Title from Kodaka on 6th January, 2017. FUMA wants history to repeat itself.

The Ring Out rules were taken away for the Budokai final. Fuminori Abe and Hideki Suzuki got to wrestle each other in a normal match to see who was better. The Double Arm Suplex was the difference maker. Suzuki used the move to counter Abe’s Rabbit Punch to win the tournament. Suzuki thanked the fans for coming and told a story about first meeting Abe ten years ago. Abe was just an elementary school student who joined the UWF Snake Pit Gym in Koenji. The first thing Abe told Suzuki when he signed up was “Mr. Suzuki, I’m going to WWE!” Years went by until they met again and this time Suzuki found out Abe became a monk. Suzuki was really happy to wrestle with Abe today.

Kodaka approached Abe during the commemorative group photo at the end of the show. He thought Abe did pretty good today. Kodaka doesn’t know if Abe still wants to join WWE but he would like Abe to join BASARA instead. Kodaka offered him a BASARA T-shirt. Abe was happy to accept it. How could he say no? Kodaka told Abe they can get stronger together. Abe promised he will do his best to help make BASARA bigger.

*V2 for Isami Kodaka.

When Fuminori Abe asked for a Union MAX Title shot he wanted to find out how far he has progressed since he started wrestling in BASARA. The champion Isami Kodaka was more than happy to oblige. Abe put up a good fight but Kodaka outwrestled him and made him submit to a Manjigatame. Kodaka told Abe that his body aches but the match was fun. Abe said even though he lost he was able to prove he enjoys wrestling more than anyone else. Kodaka agreed but told Abe he needs to take the next step. It’s fun now but Abe needs to grow to enjoy it even more. Kodaka told him there are only a handful of moments in his 15 year career when he experienced true ecstasy. Abe said there is no chance he can be compared to Munenori Sawa right now but his goal in the next few years is to go beyond Sawa then he can challenge Kodaka again.

IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family have joined forces to become the Metal Family! For their first match together Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, FUMA & SAGAT came out to “(You Can Still) Rock In America” by Night Ranger. SAGAT also got into the swing of things by bringing a guitar with him to play during the entrance. He countered Ryota Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and won the match with the Goregrind. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted words of praise to SAGAT afterwards. Phrases like “Good job!”, “Gore of the year!”, “Feel so good!” and “I’m coming!” which was then corrected to “Home coming!”

Both Hercules Senga & Takato Nakano asked Best Stretchman V3 to return Tsutomu Oosugi but Stretchman told them that Oosugi wanted to team with him. In the match itself Stretchman blocked a low kick from Senga and Oosugi rolled on top of Senga with a School Boy to pin him. Afterwards Senga asked Oosugi if he wanted to win so badly that he was willing to team with Stretchman. He then took out a promotional Speed Of Sounds photo to try and tug Oosugi’s emotional strings. When Stretchman saw the photo he finally realised that Senga and Oosugi are a tag team. He then had a brainstorm. The three of them can team up together! Senga refused because he does not want to conform to the Best Stretch style. Senga told the two he will see them in court on 6th January!
