The first meeting between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Sento Minzoku took place as a singles Gauntlet match with Ring Out rules in effect until the final match. Things started off well for Ganpro when Shota pinned Daiki Shimomura. Sento Minzoku’s newest member Minoru Fujita turned the tables by beating Shota and then Keisuke Ishii. When Ken Ohka stepped into the ring to fight him, Fujita instead decided to eliminate himself. Ryuichi Sekine then attacked Ohka from behind to begin the final round of the match. Sekine bloodied Ohka’s forehead outside the ring and he blocked the Fire Spear with a Kneelift inside the ring. Sekine wrapped his tail around his leg and hit Ohka with the Dragon Kick. The extra power behind the move got Sekine and Sento Minzoku the victory, although Ohka did kick out right as the ref counted three.
The disputed finish led to a brawl between the two sides. During Sekine’s attempts to tell everyone it was a three count, Shimomura grabbed the microphone off him and told Ishii he was coming after him. He’s ready for a fight anytime, anywhere. Fujita then bragged about being back in the main story of Ganpro. He both won and lost his matches today, showing that this invasion isn’t as black and white as it seems. His purpose in the unit is to make everything good in both BASARA and Ganpro. Ohka said his side lost today but losing is never the end when it comes to wrestling. Life goes on and Ohka still has fight in him to have another match. He told everyone that both Ganpro and BASARA will be holding shows in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 17th November. Ohka wants singles matches against Sekine on one show and Fujita on the other. They both accepted. Sekine promised to be in perfect condition while Fujita told Ohka to borrow the power of B’z and “BAD COMMUNICATION” when they face off again.
Hideki Suzuki isn’t sure if Kouki Iwasaki has earned his respect yet, but Suzuki never wanted to give him that in the first place. Suzuki would rather have Iwasaki show no respect and come at him with a killer instinct. That is how Suzuki does it and he wants his opponents to do that too. With that said he did shake Iwasaki’s hand after the match.
The match between Shigehiro Irie and Chikara featured unexpected interference from Shin Mokujin Ken, Mizuki Watase and Keisuke Ishii. Both Watase and Ishii launched an attack train on Irie as a good gestured farewell. They encouraged the referee Daisuke Kiso to join in but Irie caught him. He threatened to give Kiso the Black Hole Slam but instead gently put him down and gave him a hug. Irie went on to beat Chikara and they shook with their left hands. Irie left the ring with a big smile on his face.
Both teams in the women’s match wanted to be called Team HARUKAZE. At the beginning of the show Moeka Haruhi announced she is joining Ganpro to support the Ganbare☆Joshi division in HARUKAZE’s absence.
Hiroshi Yamato & Yumehito Imanari brought radishes to the ring and used them as weapons on their opponents. Shuichiro Katsumura & Nobuhiro Tsurumaki turned the radishes against the team and won the match.
