From humble beginnings in Dera Nagoya Pro Wrestling all the way to becoming the KO-D Openweight Champion in DDT, it’s been a crazy ten years of wrestling for Shigehiro Irie. Today in Osaka he got to celebrate his 10th anniversary with a match against both Keisuke Ishii and Soma Takao in a Team Dream Futures reunion. At first Takao kept his distance and allowed Irie and Ishii to fight each other but he soon got into the mix. Irie stopped Takao from giving Ishii the Gin And Tonic. Ishii struck Irie with a Thrust Kick but Irie hit back with the Beast Bomber. Ishii was knocked into the corner and Irie hit a Running Cannonball followed by another Beast Bomber for the win.

Irie thanked his opponents for the special match and he also thanked everyone for coming despite the horrible weather in the region. Irie told Ishii and Takao to continue their ways to revolutionize pro wrestling. During the celebration ceremony, Irie’s mentor Kengo Takai asked Irie if they could have a match together for Irie’s 15th anniversary because it will also be Takai’s 25th anniversary when it happens. Irie told him they could do the match right now! The ring cleared and the two collided to start an impromptu match between student and teacher. Takai hit Irie with a chair and Splashed him through a table at ringside. Irie kicked out of the Dera Hof Bomb and crushed Takai with the Cannonball Drop before winning with the Beast Bomber. Irie admitted afterwards that it wasn’t a good idea for him to have another match. Takai agreed. Irie thanked Takai for teaching him because it was him who raised Irie to become a pro wrestler.

Daisuke Harada expressed regret that he wasn’t able to wrestle against Konosuke Takeshita today. Takeshita was pulled from the show with a shoulder injury and was replaced by Yuki Ueno in their tag match. Harada praised Ueno for stepping in and would be happy to wrestle him again.

Due to Takeshita’s injury, an announcement about his removal from this year’s King Of DDT tournament took place during intermission. Sanshiro Takagi then invited Kazuki Hirata to the ring. Since Hirata lost his Right To Challenge Gauntlet earlier in the show, he was now eligible to enter the King Of DDT. However Hisaya Imabayashi stepped in and explained that he already decided to give Takeshita’s 1st Round opponent Naomi Yoshimura a bye into the next round. Yoshimura came out and said a bye or a match against Hirata doesn’t make any difference to him. Hirata said he doesn’t mind when people laugh at him but he won’t stand for it when people think he’s a small fish. He’ll be the small fish who puts Yoshimura to shame when he knocks him out of the 1st Round! Hirata accepted the open spot and his match with Yoshimura will be the main event on 31st July!

Daisuke Sasaki didn’t want to say too many kind words about Irie today because DAMNATION hates RENEGADES. Instead Sasaki told everyone that somebody from DAMNATION will win King Of DDT, win the KO-D Title and end Irie’s career in the next 10 years!

July 18, 2018

DOVE PRO “DOVE X BASARA 2018 IN OSAKA”, 22/07/2018
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall
278 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Naoki Tanizaki, Yuki Aoki & Kouhei Kinoshita defeated Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano when Tanizaki pinned Nakano with the Implant (12:09).
2. “brother” YASSHI defeated SAGAT with the Nice Jamaica (11:02).
3. FUMA & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Shoichi Uchida & Kenshin Chikano when Tsukamoto pinned Uchida with a Thrust Kick (12:28).
4. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Rey Paloma with the Zen Samson Clutch (10:48).
5. TLC 4 THE HARD WAY – DOVE World Title Challenger Decision: Fuminori Abe defeated Isami Kodaka, Kabuki Kid and Gunso when Abe grabbed the prize (13:15).

The feud between BASARA and Dove Pro transferred over to Dove’s shows with a series of matches pitting the two sides together. The main event featured two wrestlers from each promotion but it was every man for themselves because they fought in a TLC Match with a DOVE World Title shot on the line. Fuminori Abe was the odd man out because of his lack of experience in hardcore wrestling but he was able to adapt. Gunso and Kabuki Kid were too focused on fighting each other at the top of the ladder to defend themselves from Isami Kodaka. He knocked them out of action and then climbed the ladder to get the contract. However Abe stopped Kodaka and twisted him into the Octopus Hold at the top of the ladder. Abe was then able to pull down the contract while he was applying the move to win the match. The champion Naoki Tanizaki encouraged Abe to plan their title match for 5th August in Shinjuku.

The power of yoga defeated the power of ecstasy when Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi won over Rey Paloma. Hiroshi convinced Paloma to try some yoga during their match but Paloma ended up resisting it. However his attacks left him open for Hiroshi to trap him in a Samson Clutch for the 3 count.

Naoki Tanizaki got some momentum over Ryota Nakatsu when the two clashed in a trios match. The BASARA team put the Dove team in trouble with a triple submission spot but Tanizaki recovered to pin Takato Nakano with the Implant. After the match Nakatsu motioned that he will win the Union MAX Title from Tanizaki.

Overall BASARA won the day with three wins to Dove’s two. “brother” YASSHI increased Dove’s early lead with a win over SAGAT. But from Match #3 onwards BASARA won the rest of the matches.

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.

Ryota Nakatsu admits he likes this version of FUMA a lot more than the King Legion version back from their Union Pro days. 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. He defended both the Union MAX Title and DOVE World Title twice during his tour. On 1st July he defeated Terry Isit at a Wrestle Island show in Birkenhead, England. Then on 7th July Tanizaki achieved another successful double title defence this time against Martin Kirby at 3 Count Wrestling in Middlesbrough.

*Makoto Oishi becomes the 1,296th champion.

Konosuke Takeshita returned to the Osaka building where he attended DDT shows as a child. Although now instead of Danshoku Dino terrorising him it is now Shuji Ishikawa doing it. DAMNATION beat ALL OUT in the main event where Takeshita received more damage to his waist and lower back. With The Great Homo nowhere to be seen, Tetsuya Endo was able to win the match for his team. Ishikawa told Takeshita to come at him with all of his strength at Sumo Hall. In return he will do everything he can to crush him. Daisuke Sasaki reminded Ishikawa that he is banned from singing until Sumo Hall. His karaoke hobby began here back in January and Sasaki hasn’t forgotten the nightmare he got from listening to it. Sasaki complained about Takeshita missing shows because of his injury while DAMNATION doesn’t have any time to rest. DAMNATION has to practice singing karaoke along with Mad Paulie preparing an extraordinary dance routine!

The wave of momentum that Kazusada Higuchi was stopped dead thanks to a HARASHIMA Buzzsaw Kick. The strike knocked Higuchi out but he regained consciousness while HARASHIMA celebrated. Higuchi was so mad over what happened that he attacked HARASHIMA at ringside and threw chairs at him. HARASHIMA escaped into the ring while other wrestlers tried to calm down Higuchi to little effect. HARASHIMA rubbed it in by accepting the match prize from the show sponsor with a big smile on his face.

Mizuki Watase attended the Ganbare☆Wrestling show held earlier in the day and was impressed with the main event where Ken Ohka refused to submit to Magnitude Kishiwada. Inspired by the bout, Watase wanted to wrestle in a Give Up Only Match. If his team lost then he won’t ask for the stipulation again. His idea ended with a bad result when he gave up to a lewd Triangle Choke from Danshoku Dino.

KUDO showed more fire than usual thanks to the recent performances against him by Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno. Umeda said he finally got a taste of KUDO’s real power today. Ueno said even though he was pinned, he wasn’t burned out. He’ll be ready to win their remaining matches leading up to Sumo Hall.

Sanshiro Takagi and MAO continued to fight each other during the Falls Count Anywhere 8-Man Tag. Takagi also tried to set off another Anal Explosion in Nobuhiro Shimatani but MAO stopped him. Chinsuke Nakamura made his entrance up on the balcony but found his way to the ring eventually. Takagi dragged Shimatani over to a table by the stage entrance. He then climbed the entrance gate and dove onto Shimatani, putting him through the table to win the match.

Ethan Page attacked Naomi Yoshimura with a High Kick and a Big Boot after the 4 Way Match.

5a. Rematch: Magnitude Kishiwada defeated Ken Ohka with an Arm Lock (3:22).

For Ganbare☆Wrestling’s visit to Osaka, Ken Ohka wanted to face the strongest wrestler the city has. That’s where Magnitude Kishiwada comes in. The Osaka brute bloodied Ohka with a chairshot and took his best moves before dropping him with the Last Ride and winning with a Chicken Wing Armlock submission. Kishiwada ran down Ohka on the microphone afterwards and asked if he was still feeling motivated. Ohka despite being beaten down said that he could still wrestle for another hour or two. He can fight Kishiwada again right now! An immediate rematch was agreed to and the bell rang. Kishiwada hit a Moonsault and went for another Last Ride. Ohka escaped the move and hit the Fire Spear for a nearfall. Kishiwada hit back with a Lariat and the Diving Body Press but Ohka kicked out of the pin. Kishiwada grabbed Ohka’s arm again and pulled it back in an Arm Lock. The match was stopped and the seconds at ringside broke up the hold. Kishiwada ran down Ohka again. He doesn’t care that Ohka does his best because he does his best dozens of times, hundreds of times and thousands of times better than Ohka! He left Ohka in the ring to soak in the defeat. Ohka was upset over being so weak but he will not give up. It is a stupid idea but he will not give up so the next time he comes to Osaka he can beat Kishiwada! Those words brought Kishiwada back out. Is Ohka being honest? Would he fight Kishiwada over and over in any venue until he can win even if Kishiwada breaks his arms? Ohka told him he would but Kishiwada walked off as he was speaking. Kishiwada complained that Ohka was being noisy but suggested that maybe they will have a rematch again some day.

The match between HARUKAZE and Miyako Matsumoto took a break so both women could have a talk show style conversation about divorce. Daisuke Kiso was invited into the talk and he revealed this year is the 10th anniversary of his divorce from his first marriage. Matsumoto attacked HARUKAZE to continue the match. Ken Ohka entered the ring and announced due to strong demand that the match was now taking place under “Flag Koda” rules. Both women were given a single boxing glove and the first one to punch Koda would win. However Kiso was handed a bat to defend himself with. Kiso fought off Matsumoto with the bat but turned around and took a punch from HARUKAZE. Ohka declared HARUKAZE the winner. He praised both of them for a great match. Ohka encouraged HARUKAZE to continue being the ace of Ganbare☆Joshi and also wished Matsumoto luck on her upcoming championship match in Ice Ribbon.

Yumehito Imanari and Takeshi Okada kept fighting after Match #2. When they were kept apart, Shuichiro Katsumura asked Imanari how he feels about his current losing streak. He doesn’t mind if he continues beating him in matches and challenged Imanari to a 3 Vs 3 match on 21st March. Katsumura will bring along his regular Katsumura-gun partners Takeshi Okada and Black Ribera to be on his team.

Takaku Fuke gave Gota Ihashi some words of encouragement after their match.
