Nagoya City Mid-Sports Center
234 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shigehiro Irie & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Makoto Oishi & MAO when Irie pinned Oishi after the Tower Of Terror (7:25).
2. Crazy Gold Wolf And Gay And Dancer Slightly Special 3 Way Match: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Danshoku Dino and Kazuki Hirata when Sakaguchi pinned Hirata with the PK (9:11).
3. The Legendary Man, Jet, Finally His Last Match Of The Year!: Sanshiro Takagi, Toru Owashi & Shogo Takagi defeated KUDO, Masahiro Takanashi & Kouki Iwasaki when Takagi pinned Iwasaki with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb (8:02).
4. Naomi Yoshimura & Keisuke Okuda defeated Shunma Katsumata & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Yoshimura pinned Shimtani with a Lariat (9:34).
5. Adios Diego Tres! Special Single Match: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Diego with the German Suplex (13:39).
6. Road To D-King GP Special Single Match: Akito defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Hanamasa (8:42).
7. Nagoya Specialty! Stir-fried Miso Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Antonio Honda when Endo pinned Honda with the Shooting Star Press (14:20).

Tetsuya Endo saved Daisuke Sasaki from the Somato by giving HARASHIMA a Shiranui. From there, Endo defeated Antonio Honda with a Springboard Overhead Kick and the Shooting Star Press. After the match Endo & Mad Paulie rushed over to Sasaki fearing the worst. Sasaki weakly said he was feeling cold but before he goes, he has a secret to tell. Sasaki then jumped up and said HARASHIMA isn’t the only wrestler who trains hard. Also Naomichi Marufuji isn’t the only wrestling genius either. DAMNATION will beat them on Christmas Eve to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles and will celebrate with a Christmas party!

Both Akito and Keisuke Ishii are confident of their chances in the upcoming D-King Grand Prix. Akito beat Ishii today but Ishii still thinks he has momentum going into his block and likes his chances of making the final. Akito is looking forward to a variety of opponents. A rematch with Sasaki will trigger bad memories of Akito losing his hair while a match with Shuji Ishikawa will be focused on targeting his legs and feet. Akito also thinks Mike Bailey is not paying much attention to him so that is a first time singles match to look forward to.

Konosuke Takeshita was glad to have a singles match with Diego before Diego left Japan. He hopes Diego becomes a big wrestler in Chile someday and then come back to Japan. It doesn’t matter how long it will take, even if Diego gets old enough to become a grandpa. Grandpa Takeshita will still be the KO-D Openweight Champion by then so he can give Grandpa Diego a title match.

She’s in the main event so she cannot risk getting injured. Takagi respects the request and hatched a new plan to get the belt. Takagi, Owashi & Kazuki Hirata are apparently inviting their female relatives Francoise☆Takagi, Margaret★Owashi & Ichiko Hirata to challenge the Tokyo Joshi team in their place.

There is bitter sweet news coming from the Ganbare☆Wrestling roster. A rookie named Mao Hoshino is ready to have her debut wrestling match. Unfortunately it is also going to be her retirement match. Hoshino was born on 27th April, 1987. She is 164cm tall, weighs 65kg and her previous athletic history is in swimming. Hoshino participated in the same tryouts that Nanaka Kawamura graduated from earlier this year. She spent a year training in DDT’s wrestling classes and wanted to wrestle in Ganpuro after watching their shows. However her parents are fiercely against her decision to become a pro wrestler. After consulting with Ken Ohka, Hoshino agreed not to pursue a wrestling career but she will wrestle one match so all of her training will not be for nothing. Her trainer Cherry will be her opponent. Hoshino is frustrated by the situation and she wants to show all of her feelings in the ring.

BASARA “VAJRA 50 ~KUSANAGI SWORD~” Results

October 23, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 50 ~KUSANAGI SWORD~”, 22/10/2017
Nagoya City Mid-Sports Center
114 Fans

1. Toru Sugiura defeated Takato Nakano with a Missile Kick (7:29).
2. Trans-Am ★ Shinya defeated Daichi Kazato with the Khusi Drive (10:45).
3. Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Konoka = Pale One when Kubo pinned Nakatsu with the Death Metal Roll (14:22).
4. Yasu Urano defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with a Cradle (11:21).
5. Doki! 3 Way Hardcore Can Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA when Sekine submitted Tsukamoto with the Let’s Combine (13:13).
6. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka defeated SAGAT with the Isamuashi Zan (15:55).

SAGAT requested that his main event with Isami Kodaka could be held as a Hardcore Match. Kodaka accepted and that caught SAGAT off guard. The two fought with chairs and steel cans until Kodaka came out on top. Afterwards Kodaka said SAGAT’s growth has been wonderful to see and he encouraged SAGAT to stand up through the pain by himself. SAGAT did so. Kodaka said that he himself is incompatible with the Trans-Am ★ Family but they clearly have love for SAGAT. He would like to help them put together the Hiroshi Aid show for Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

Ryuichi Sekine took one step closer to the top of the BASARA mountain by winning the 3 Way Match. He approached Kodaka at the end of the show demanding the next shot at the Union MAX Title. In less than one month he made FUMA submit in Korakuen Hall, made Yasu Urano submit in Shin-Kiba 1st RING and today made Takumi Tsukamoto submit in Nagoya. All that is left for him is the BASARA leader himself. Sekine’s challenge wasn’t clearly understood by Kodaka but what Sekine meant to say was he doesn’t need three or four chances to win the title. He wants on decisive match against Kodaka so both are guaranteed to be at their best. He wants this to be the Match Of The Year on the indies.

Tatsuhiko Yoshino wanted to act tough by daring Yasu Urano to give him Soccer Kicks. He would then shrug them off and tell him they don’t hurt. This backfired when Urano kept kicking and slamming Yoshino until he admitted to feeling pain. Lots and lots of pain. Yoshino later had the back of his tights pulled down but he either didn’t notice or didn’t care about pulling them back up.

Ryota Nakatsu painted himself to resemble Konoka = Pale One when they teamed together. He also wanted to be called Nakatsu = Pale One.

Trans-Am ★ Shinya traveled from Mexico to wrestle on this show and he had the sunburned skin to prove it. He also cut off Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s “USA!” chants and replaced them with “Lucha!” chants instead.


Dino Meets His Fate Tomorrow, BASARA Title Chase, BOYZ Halloween Fun

6. DDT Extreme Title – TLC Match: Daisuke Sasaki (#4) (c) Vs HARASHIMA (#2)
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (#7) (c) Vs Danshoku Dino (#1)

History shows that this event has not been kind to Danshoku Dino. He has won popularity contests to get the October KO-D Openweight Title shot before. It’s just he’s never gone on to win the title afterwards. Can the heart of DDT beat the new ace of DDT and finally break the statistic?

Keisuke Ishii should be psyched he is now fighting the new Triple Crown Champion.

KUDO Gets A Concussion, KO-D 6-Man Titles Vacated

October 10, 2017

KUDO was concussed during the main event of yesterday’s show in Sapporo. His doctor said that there is no need for him to stay in a hospital but KUDO will be out of action for at least one month so he has plenty of time to recover. Because of this decision, Shuten-dōji have agreed to vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. Their next defence was originally scheduled for 14th October against ALL OUT but that match has been cancelled. A match to crown the new champions will be determined on a later date.

4. Doki! Hardcore Can 6-Man Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Masamune Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, SAGAT & Yasu Urano
5. Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi Vs FUMA & Fuminori Abe

Now that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is on friendly terms with the BASARA wrestlers, he gets to team with Isami Kodaka.

Hercules Senga is so upset that his regular tag partner Tsutomu Oosugi is now with Best Stretchman V3 that he is convinced Oosugi was kidnapped. Senga enlisted Atsushi Maruyama to help him save Oosugi. Whether or not Oosugi actually needs saving is up for debate which just so happens to be something else Maruyama can do.
