Show #2 of Ganbare☆Wrestling’s quadruple header was a complete conflict between Shuichiro Katsumura and Shota. The two wrestlers had been trading wins back and forth over the last year and agreed to find some tag partners for a final showdown. Katsumura brought in an old rival Takafumi Ito as well as Mitsuhisa Sunabe. Shota’s teammates were Mitomi Masayuki, somebody he knows well in the indie scene, and from out of left field Syuri. The match itself was Best 2 out of 3 Falls with each fall having a different ruleset.
The 1st Fall was UWF Rules. Both teams begun the match with 3 points. They were deducted a point for every rope break. If a team reached 0 points they would automatically lose. Shunabe and Shota started off. Shunabe forced Shota to take a rope break with a Cross Armbreaker. Ito and Masayuki then tagged in. Masayuki proudly warned his opponent that he would show his the prestige of pro wrestling. Ito put him in an Anklelock and gave Shota’s team another rope break, putting them at risk of losing the fall. Syuri rescued the team somewhat by making Katsumura reach for the ropes twice. Masayuki’s “prestigious pro wrestling” turned out to be giving Ito a Low Blow while the referee was looking elsewhere. However Ito countered a Fireman’s Carry into a Haragatame to make Masayuki give up.
The 2nd Fall was Lucha Libre Rules. Both Katsumura and Shota did some acrobatic ringwork to fit in with the stipulation. Ito struggled to keep up with the pace even with both teams instructing him with what to do. They even did the Osaka Pro Hop spot with Ito looking like the fool. Ito eventually had enough and went after whoever was in his way. He attempted to pin Syuri with La Magistral Cradle but Syuro blocked it and got the three count with her own pin.
The final fall was a regular pro wrestling tag match. Both teams brawled around ringside. Back in the ring there was plenty of double team moves used. While everyone was getting their fair share of action, it all came down to Katsumura and Shota in the end. Shota went for a Rolling Cradle but Katsumura reversed it to grab the winning fall of the match.
Everyone in the match shook hands with each other at the end, except for Katsumura and Shota. Katsumura approached Shota and told him that all six of the wrestlers today got to show off various styles and match rules together. This is what Ganpro is all about. He shook Shota’s hand then promoted his GWC 6-Man Tag Team Title challenge with THE HALFEE taking place later tonight.
