*V1 for Ken Ohka.
The champion Ken Ohka was able to beat Atsushi Maruyama even with the challenger getting support from Yasu Urano and MIYAWAKI at ringside. Urano got a few punches in when the ref was distracted and MIYAWAKI pulled the ref out of the ring when Ohka had Maruyama pinned. Maruyama gave Ohka a Low Blow and hit his TAJIRI certified Buzzsaw Kick. Ohka kicked out of the pin and countered another Buzzsaw Kick into a Dragon Screw. He then hit a Dragon Suplex and finished the match with the Fire Spear. Despite the dirty fighting, Ohka was happy to get his first title defence with Maruyama in Osaka. He spoke about his memories of Delfin Arena and how if it wasn’t for that place he may not be here today. Maruyama congratulated Ohka but said he would never beat him twice in a row. Ohka had to correct him and brought up the match they had back in December, which Ohka also won. Ohka said he wants to defend the title in Kansai, Kyushu, Hokkaido, the United States and Canada! If the Olympics ever include pro wrestling as an official sport of the Games then he wants to defend the title there too!
Yasu Urano wondered why Ganpuro reached out to book him for the show. He figured it out when he saw he was going against Shinichiro Tominaga. The match was to rekindle his memories of K-DOJO. He also got to see what MIYAWAKI and Minoru Fujita had been up to. Urano admitted he hates Ohka but it was nice to see his old friends find something like Ganpuro to support.
Sugar, sweets, candy, chocolate and crisps. Anything that will rot your teeth was on display for the 15,000 Calorie Double Sweet Death Match. There was also an exploding cracker launcher set up in one of the corners. Yumehito Imanari and Bambi fought and force fed each other for almost 10 gruelling minutes. Bambi had to load her kneepad with candy to knock Imanari down and out with the Standing Shining Wizard. After the match Imanari talked about his other job working on DDT’s video team. Part of his work is to look over old tapes and he got to see a lot of Bambi’s matches back when she wrestled as “Showa”. He told Bambi she looked so thin back then but he is happy to see how big she is in comparison now. According to Imanari, Bambi passes his test! Bambi hugged Imanari but the two accidentally fell into the corner where the cracker launcher was and the collision made it explode.
Enjo-gun fell apart when Shibata accidentally hit Mitomi Masayuki with a Superman Punch. The two then fought each other. Shibata grabbed a can of beer and swung at Masayuki. He missed and found himself right into the arms of Hiroto Okubo. When Okubo gave Shibata a German Suplex, his partner Daina Mido drank the beer. Mido & Okuba promised to work hard so they can get more recognition and get regular spots in Ganpuro.
