Spring Is Blooming But Everything Will Probably Get Cancelled Anyway

March 23, 2020

Who knows how much of this will stick in the next few days. I’m writing this while hearing the Olympics are likely to get postponed until next year. If that’s going down then no way does the pro wrestling schedule in Japan for the rest of the year remain unscathed.

BASARA “BASARA 125 ~BANQUET~”, 24/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tetsuo Usui Vs Akiyori Takizawa
2. Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Gouma Ryu Vs Yusuke Kubo, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT
3. FUMA & Antonio Honda Vs Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino

6. Union MAX Title: Masahiro Takanashi (c) Vs Fuminori Abe

Spring is beginning to bloom which means BASARA’s schedule is ramping up. If nothing gets cancelled then there will be 3 or 4 BASARA shows a month happening up to July.

BASARA “BASARA 126 ~OSAKA CAMP SPRING TAISHO~”, 28/03/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Takato Nakano Vs Jun Masaoka

3. Losers Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match Vs Fuminori Abe & Tetsuo Usui
4. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
5. Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita
6. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Winners Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match

The No. 1 Contenders for the IRON FIST Tag Titles won’t have to wait long for the title match.

Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita looks like a de facto No. 1 Contender’s match for the Union MAX Title. Don’t know why else two Sento Minzoku wrestlers would face off against each other. Then again I’ve been struggling to follow BASARA ever since the split so I have to be missing the context for it.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 28/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Haruna Neko Vs Mirai Maiumi
2. Yuna Manase Vs Sena Shiori
3. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa Vs Mina Shirakawa & Suzume
4. Shoko Nakajima & Nodoka Tenma Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Mahiro Kiryu

7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Maki Itoh & Raku

The Tampa show next month being cancelled means Yuka Sakazaki Vs Su Yung can no longer go ahead. That means there is currently no No. 1 Contender for the Princess Of Princess Title. To keep Sakazaki from feeling lonely on top for much longer, a 4 Way Match will be held this week to determine her next challenger. The options are the previous champ Miyu Yamashita, Sakazaki’s regular tag partner Mizuki, superhero trickster Hyper Misao and breaking out of the pack Yuki Aino.

1. Falls Count Anywhere 6-Man Tag Match: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Gorgeous Matsuno Vs Shinya Aoki, Makoto Oishi & Gabai Ji-chan

Probably crossing the line at this point but let’s keep going and see what happens. DDT is doing a Falls Count Anywhere Match inside a medical clinic. Gorgeous Matsuno and Gabai Ji-chan will be there too for added refuge in audacity. The match will broadcast live on DDT’s Youtube channel.

Yukio Sakaguchi has stepped up to challenge Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. It’s only been around three months since Eruption was formed and they are already making their move to take over DDT! Tanaka is bringing in Takuya Sugawara to even the numbers a little.

Konosuke Takeshita, Chris Brookes and Yuki Ueno were going to be in Tampa along with the Tokyo Joshi Pro crew but that’s not happening now. The three of them will instead wrestle each other back in Japan. Show them what America will miss lads.

The 5th Match in the Okibariyasu series is going to be kick heavy. Saki Akai faces the freelancer Syuri.

1. Special Single Match ~Beauty And Hentai~: Asuka Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Hataage 6th Anniversary Match ~New And Old Ganpro Vs Tomodachi-gun~: Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Minoru Fujita & Hagane Shinno

Who has the more beautiful Moonsault, Asuka or Shinichiro Tominaga? Who has the more perverted Moonsault? Does that even make sense? Either way, the answer for that one is Tominaga. I still haven’t gotten over the time he compared himself to XVideos in a promo.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi

With Sakaguchi going after the KO-D Title, Kazusada Higuchi has made it his mission to win the Saitama Super Arena Sword from Tetsuya Endo. If Sakaguchi and Higuchi both get their way then “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” will have an all Eruption main event!

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAISHO~”, 18/04/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs Kazuki Hirata
2. Osaka Special Single Match: Chris Brookes Vs Maku Donaruto

You’re not escaping from Maku Donaruto, Brookes! Not now, not ever!

DDT “ROAD TO PETER PAN 2020 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TONKOTSU~”, 19/04/2020
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

2. Fukuoka Specialty! DDT Sauna Club No. 1 Tag Decision Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs MAO & Shunma Katsumata
3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Antonio Honda

It took a few tries and asking the right person but Antonio Honda is getting his DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. Maybe tranquility is the right path for him and Daisuke Sasaki… Pfft! Yeah right, what wrestler ever made it big thanks to tranquility?

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X
2. Special Tag Match ~ HarashiMarufuji Vs CimaSoma!: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji Vs CIMA & Soma Takao
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Holder Of The Saitama Super Arena Sword

So right now the SSA main event is Tanaka Vs Endo. But there are still title matches to come and Right To Challenge Gauntlets still in play that can completely change the course of the KO-D Title scene over the next two months. Also the Coronavirus cancelling everything but let’s not think about that.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART AND BODY~” Results

March 21, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 21/03/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
210 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Rika Tatsumi defeated Sena Shiori with the Twist Of Fate (7:27).
2. Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa defeated Pom Harajuku, Mahiro Kiryu & Haruna Neko when Shirakawa pinned Harajuku with the Implant DDT (7:57).
3. Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma with La Magistral Cradle (6:43).
4. Maki Itoh & Raku defeated Miu Watanabe & Suzume when Raku pinned Suzume with the Doctor Yellow (10:46).
5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Hikari Noa defeated Shoko Nakajima, Yuki Aino & Mirai Maiumi when Mizuki pinned Maiumi with the Diving Foot Stomp (13:11).
6. Miyu Yamashita defeated Natsumi Maki with the Crash Rabbit Heat (10:59).

Third time was not the charm for Natsumi Maki. She is now 0-3 in singles matches against Miyu Yamashita. Maki left her guard down after hitting a Thrust Kick, allowing Yamashita to catch her with the Backward Kick. When Maki struggled to get back to her feet, Yamashita hit the Crash Rabbit Heat to win. After the match Maki refused to shake her opponent’s hand and walked off angry. Yamashita said she wants to have a fourth match with Maki but only when one of them has a championship. That way they will both be stronger when the time comes.

Yuka Sakazaki is feeling lonely because she no longer has any Princess Title defences coming up. She just has to wait for a new contender to appear.

Maki Itoh didn’t want to shake her opponents’ hands only because she wanted to avoid close contact. She also wanted to take this match seriously in preparation for her Princess Tag Team Titles match with Raku next week.

Both Hyper Misao and Nodoka Tenma drank milk during their match to recover from each other’s moves. Tenma took so long to drink a liter of milk that Misao pinned her to win.

Rika Tatsumi will release a solo photobook on 3rd May.

Team Yellow: Yuka Sakazaki, Rika Tatsumi, Natsumi Maki, Nodoka Tenma, Raku, Pom Harajuku & Suzume

A three team battle determined by costume colours was the theme for today’s dojo show. Tetsuya Koda kept the card a mystery outside of match formats until the start of the show. Shota announced each of the matches then revealed the prize for the winning team was tickets to Asakusa Hanayashiki, Japan’s oldest amusement park.

First up was Maki Itoh representing Team Red against Team Blue’s Sena Shiori. Itoh caught Shiori with a DDT off the ropes for the win. Itoh wants to stop wrestling in the dojo because nobody is there to answer her question “Who is the cutest in the world?”

Team Yellow then had their first match and got their first points when Rika Tatsumi beat Mina Shirakawa. Tatsumi tried to trap Shirakawa in the ring apron so she would get counted out but she made it back in at 19. Tatsumi countered the Implant DDT with the Twist Of Fate. She then got the three count with the Missile Hip.

Team Yellow continued their winning ways when Natsumi Maki beat Mahiro Kiryu. Maki pulled Kiryu’s hair to break out of a Crab Hold and did not let go until she was given a Spinebuster. Kiryu ran to the ropes but was caught in the Backlash to suffer another defeat for Team Blue.

Then it was time for something different. The 3 Way Match took place under 5 Rounds lasting 2 minutes each. Every wrestler would begin the match with 3 points. They lose 1 point if they are pinned for a 2 Count or if they submit. From the 2nd Round onward they can lose 1 point if they perform a banned action decided by a Twitter poll. Only the referee knows what the banned action is. The match ends when either all 5 rounds are done or if one wrestler is reduced to 0 points. The winner is whoever has the most points when the match ends. Hyper Misao and Pom Harajuku teamed up to pin Miyu Yamashita for a 2 Count. Yamashita then pinned Harajuku when she Body Slammed Misao on top of her. In Round 2 the banned action was “Speaking English”. Misao lost a point when she called for the Hero Correction System. She didn’t understand why she was penalised until the rule was revealed at the end of the round. In Round 3, Irish Whips off the ropes were illegal. Yamashita lost a point when she whipped Misao off the ropes. The banned move for Round 4 was never revealed because the match ended here. Harajuku lost a point for Irishi Whipping Yamashita off the ropes. Misao tried to strangle Yamashita with her cloak but Yamashita wrapped the cloak over Misao’s head and then kicked her with a High Kick. Yamashita went for the Attitude Adjustment but Harajuku suddenly rolled her over with a School Boy to take away Yamashita’s last point. The match ended and even though Harajuku got the final pin, Misao had one more point than her so she was the winner!

The show went back to normal with the tag match. Okay except for the part where Yuna Manase & Hikari Noa force fed Nodoka Tenma a banana. Noa pinned Suzume with the Uranage to give Team Blue a two match winning streak.

Mirai Maiumi wore similar makeup and clothing as Yuki Kamifuku so they could match together as a team. Shoko Nakajima purposely rubbed the makeup off Maiumi’s face while they wrestled. Kamifuku got revenge by drawing on her opponent’s faces with lipstick. In the end, Nakajima pinned Maiumi with the Northern Lights Suplex. She and Miu Watanabe laughed at each other’s messy faces after the match. Shota said they both looked like Princess Mononoke.

With Team Blue out of the running, the main event was down to Team Red and Team Yellow. Raku got rid of Mizuki, leaving Yuka Sakazaki to fight Yuki Aino. The two scrambled between the Magical Merry-Go-Round and the Venus DDT. Sakazaki took down Aino with a Low-Lying Lariat then hit the Magical Magical Girl Splash to make Team Yellow the overall winners!

The victory ceremony went a little off the rails. Tatsumi wanted to give her theme park pass to Mizuki. Sakazaki attacked Mizuki and suddenly everyone started fighting! Tatsumi yelled that the last ones standing would win the prize as the show finished. Team Yellow eventually got their prize back.
