Irie Opens Up On Current DDT, Preparations For Heaven Summit Final, Yamashita Vs Yuu

5. Kota Umeda “Mad Dog” 7 Match Series – 4th Match: Dick Togo Vs Kota Umeda
6. DDT Extreme Title – Blindfolded Hidden Breasts Death Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Antonio Honda

A classic ruleset is coming back for the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match. The match will run non-stop for 10 minutes and whoever is the champion at the end will be declared the winner.

The current Right To Challenge Gauntlet holders are Meiko Satomura (Red), HARASHIMA (Green), Akito (Yellow), Yukio Sakaguchi (Black) and Yuki Iino (Blue). Shigehiro Irie still thinks that the gimmick is unnecessary. It’s not that he hates the concept, it is because he will accept the challenges from anybody who steps up to him anyway. He wonders whenever the Gauntlet holders publicly tell everyone that they are not using their title shot if they even want to be a champion. And if they don’t want to be champion then why are they wrestling? If any of the holders want to cash in their shot straight after Irie’s match ends, he will still be ready for them. Irie always has two fights in him whenever he steps into the ring.

Irie has also criticised DDT for failing to evolve their comedy style over the years. He thinks Danshoku Dieno is partly to blame for that as the DDT Producer. Another problem is Irie’s plans for DDT aren’t coming to fruition like he was promised. He wants to defend the KO-D Openweight Title overseas but accuses Dieno of not doing anything in his power to help put it together.

Nakatsu is confident he can win the tournament and spend all of the prize money on Cavalry.

Naoki Tanizaki won’t be back in BASARA until the 19th July because he has been doing a tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland.

BASARA “VAJRA 68 ~OSAKA CLUB SHOGETSUKI~” Results

May 20, 2018

BASARA “VAJRA 68 ~OSAKA CLUB SHOGETSUKI~”, 20/05/2018
Osaka Oyodo Community Center
221 Fans – No Vacancy

2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Fuminori Abe defeated Gouma Ryu and Hercules Senga when Abe pinned Ryu with the Buddha (8:26).
3. Manabu Hara & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Yusuke Kubo when Hara submitted Kubo with the Chickenwing Arm Lock (10:49).

6. Union MAX Title: Naoki Tanizaki (c) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Implant (17:27).
*V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Naoki Tanizaki kept hitting Takumi Tsukamoto with the Casanova knee strikes until he was too hurt to counter the Implant. After the match Tanizaki bragged about being a double champion and dared anyone from BASARA to come out and challenge him for the Union MAX Title. All of the roster came out and faced him in the ring. Tanizaki told all of them there will be a BASARA x DOVE Pro event at Azalea Taisho Hall in Osaka on 15th July. He will be ready for one of them to challenge him then. He then singled out Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and told him he will prepare a great opportunity for him. When he left, Kodaka rallied all the BASARA wrestlers together for a closing speech to the fans.

Kodaka wore his Son Goku costume with the tail included. That led to him and HUB grabbing and pulling each other by their tails while they fought each other.

BASARA “VAJRA 67 ~EMBRACING THE AMBITION~”, 06/05/2018

381 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Akiyori Takizawa defeated Takato Nakano with the Sleng Teng (11:42).

5. NWA World Jr. Heavyweight & International Jr. Heavyweight Titles: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Ikuto Hidaka with the Isamuashi Zan (19:07).
*V1 for Isami Kodaka.

BASARA’s first visit to Sapporo was highlighted by Isami Kodaka match against Ikuto Hidaka with the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title and International Jr. Heavyweight Title both on the line. Kodaka came out wearing the same kind of “flame” mask that Hidaka had worn sometimes. Kodaka was able to bounce back from losing the Union MAX Title earlier in the week by successfully defending his remaining singles titles. After the match Kodaka joked that everybody makes Hidaka look like a fool. Hidaka corrected him and said only he and Yuko Miyamoto do. Kodaka told him that it was an honour to fight him at BASARA’s first Sapporo show. He then gave him 6,000 yen to pay for the “flame” mask he wore for his entrance.

Ryota Nakatsu tried to give Naoki Tanizaki a Cross Armbreaker but it was countered into a Reverse Implant. Nakatsu was able to kick out but a regular Implant after that was enough to keep him down.

1. Attitude Of The Imanari Revolution: Yumehito Imanari Vs Shuichiro Katsumura
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shota

On 1st May Shota signed a full time contract with Ganbare☆Wrestling. To mark the occasion he challenged Keisuke Ishii for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Shota was working with Guts World then went on an excursion to America after the company closed in April. Ohka had always wanted Shota to join Ganpro proper and approached him to make it happen when Shota no longer had a home promotion.

Yumehito Imanari has started the Imanari Revolution so he can be recognised as a main eventer. His campaign began successfully when he defeated Takeshi Okada in the main event of last month’s show. Now he faces Shuichiro Katsumura, the leader of Katsumura-gun and also the person who previously helped train him to fight Ganpro’s enemies. Imanari hopes that this match will be the main event.

7. Union MAX Title & DOVE World Title: Naoki Tanizaki (D/c) defeated Isami Kodaka (U/c) with the Libido (16:27).
*Isami Kodaka fails in V6. Naoki Tanizaki becomes the 10th Union MAX Champion! V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Dove Pro Wrestling is back with a vengeance and they now have BASARA’s championship! Naoki Tanizaki went into the Double Title main event with Gunso in his corner representing Dove Pro. Isami Kodaka came out by himself with the Union MAX Title around his waist. Tanizaki kicked out of the Diving Double Knee Drop as well as the European Clutch. He dropped Kodaka with the Implant several times throughout the match and they eventually took their toll on Kodaka. Tanizaki finally had him beat with the Casanova knee strike followed by the Libido knee lift for the three count. Tanizaki said the title win was for all of the Dove Pro believers who cheered for him today. He feels confident that he has beaten the best that BASARA has to offer. When he said this, Takumi Tsukamoto came out and challenged him to a MAX Title match. When Tanizaki and Gunso left, Kodaka called all of the BASARA home wrestlers to join him in the ring. He thinks Tsukamoto can bring the Union MAX Title back to BASARA but Kodaka still wants to fight Tanizaki one on one again some day. The show is over and BASARA is starting over. They may have lost today but they will come out of this stronger than they were before!

There is something about Ryota Nakatsu that Ikuto Hidaka seems to like. He feels like he is now Nakatsu’s 45 year old uncle and they will still be wrestling each other until Nakatsu can outkick his uncle. Hidaka admits that if today wasn’t a tag match, he would have lost to Nakatsu after he took his V Slider finisher. Minoru Fujita was also impressed by Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine today.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi returned from a long absence as a changed man. He took up yoga to recover from his dislocated shoulder and travelled to India to learn more about the practice. For his first match back Hiroshi went face to face with Osamu Nishimura. Quite a big opponent for him but he stayed calm throughout. Hiroshi meditated while he was put in submission holds to withstand the pain. Soon Nishimura meditated too and they were both inactive for so long that the referee began to count them towards a double knockout. Both stirred and went back to wrestling until Nishimura locked in a Sleeper Hold. Hiroshi tried to meditate again but ended up losing consciousness. Nishimura then easily rolled him into a Cobra Twist to pin him. He told Hiroshi afterwards that he too has visited India many times to learn yoga. The most important lesson is even if the body is destroyed, the soul will continue to live many lives. Hiroshi said he was happy to learn from a guru today. They then sang a song together.

The return of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro rivalry means the return of SAGAT and Gunso fighting each other in Hardcore Matches. SAGAT lost like he tends to but this time it was FUMA who got pinned. SAGAT gave Jun Kasai a Brainbuster from the ladder but Gunso immediately cut him off with the Diving Guillotine Drop. FUMA fought off his opponents until Gunso took him down with a chair shot. Kasai gave FUMA the Reverse Tiger Driver then Kasai & Gunso hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Diving Guillotine Drop to FUMA at the same time for the win. Kasai ripped off FUMA’s heavy metal shirt after the match and threw it into the crowd.

Fuminori Abe had a spirited fight against Minoru Tanaka. During their early exchanges Abe told Tanaka “I believe the B in BASARA stands for Batibati!” then he hit him with strikes. Abe later kicked out of the Superfly at one but was quickly put down with the Sliding D. Tanaka shook Abe’s hand after the match but Abe slapped Tanaka across the face in response. Tanaka didn’t mind it. He said that it was a cheerful match and he likes to face wrestlers with Abe’s style of fighting. He didn’t know what to expect because he never saw anything from Abe before today. It was fun though and if the wrestlers have fun with what they are doing then the fans will have fun watching them.

The rest of the BASARA wrestlers were pitted against the Metal Family in a 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match. The weakest of the BASARA team Gouma Ryu took a beating but Yasu Urano was there to keep the numbers even. Ryu was able to eliminate Trans-Am ★ Tanaka by gutsy luck. Tanaka kicked him from the apron but as Ryu fell he tripped Tanaka and pulled him to the floor with him. That left Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi as the final two. They fought on the apron until Tsukamoto knocked Ryuichi to the floor with the Thrust Kick to win the match for BASARA!

Takato Nakano tried to pin Manabu Hara with several different Cradles but a Cross Armbreaker ended the match in Hara’s favour.

I’m going on holiday for a week so there won’t be anymore updates until 13th April at the earliest. That means I’ll be late posting results for the next six shows.

Riho is looking forward to wrestling against Maki Ito one on one for the first time. Riho is always happy to meet new people but Ito is annoyed that Riho doesn’t know who she is. She even told Mizuki back in December when they were looking for a tag partner to bring in someone who respects her. Riho pointed out that Mizuki never brought up Ito, she just asked her to team up for a match. She doesn’t know anything about Ito other than her name. That only made Ito even more annoyed because according to her she’s been a famous idol for almost as long as Riho has been wrestling. Riho excused that by saying she spends so much of her life in wrestling that she never had the time to look up Ito’s Wikipedia page.

Yuki Aino is from Okayama and is Nodoka-oneesan’s real life sister. She was the Tokyo Joshi ring announcer since January 2017 but she originally joined to become a wrestler. At first she stopped training because she couldn’t balance it with her college studies. However she secretly began training again near the end of last year and is now ready to debut.

The new ring announcer debuting on this show is Sayuri Nanba, an idol from Saitama.
