GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DANCE POPOCHOLINE 2017”, 07/05/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Yumehito Vs “X”: Yumehito Imanari Vs X
2. GANPRO SUPERSTAR WAR!!: Ken Ohka & Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO

Ken Ohka wanted to team with Ganbare The Great to avenge their loss at the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament final. But the masked wrestler isn’t responding to him on LINE so Shinichiro Tominaga will have to do instead.

On 8th July Ganbare☆Wrestling will be hosting a special 4th Anniversary show for Dai Suzuki in his hometown of Tochigi. This is news for Suzuki because he has never wrestled for Ganpuro. This is really just an excuse for Ohka to promote a show outside of Tokyo and spread Ganpuro over to a new region and apparently Suzuki owed him a favour going back to his debut match.


Iron Man Title In Orlando, Right To Challenge Changes, Double Sweet Death Match

April 3, 2017

This past week in Orlando, the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title went through a series of title changes all around the city. There were many pro wrestling shows held throughout Orlando and the Iron Man Title was seen in several of them. The first title change happened on 30th March when Joey Ryan lost the title to Brandi Rhodes on a WrestlePro show. The show promoter Pat Buck then won the title backstage later in the night. Buck was later pinned by Ryan. So far, so good.

The next day Ryan defended the title in an Over The Top Rope Battle Royal at the WrestleCon Super Show. Ryan was pinned by The Underground Luchador who afterwards revealed himself to be Matt Striker. Ryan, who wasn’t eliminated because it was Over The Top Rope rules only, threw Striker out of the ring to eliminate him and win back the belt. The match ended with Swoggle eliminating Ryan to become champion. Ryan quickly won the belt back but his celebration was then interrupted by The Sandman! One Singapore Cane beating later and The Sandman is champ. Later backstage Swoggle snuck up on a sleeping Sandman and pinned him, then Joey did the same to Swoggle. So at the end of the night, Joey had the belt. Got it? Because it’s going to get a bit more hectic.

Many more changes happened on April Fool’s Day. First, a match between Joey and The Primate at What Culture Pro Wrestling was interrupted by Jack The Jobber pinning Joey to win the title. Joey won the belt back but then lost it to Joe Hendry. However, Hendry declared that he hates comedy wrestling so he threw the belt into a trash bin. An official decision was made to declare the Trash Bin as the new champion! Jack The Jobber pinned the Bin, Joey pinned Jack and then ran off to the WrestleCon Women’s Super Show. While there, Shayna Baszler submitted Joey with an Armbar. Eddie Kingston stole the belt backstage. He was declared the champion when Baszler gave up searching for the belt. Kingston then traded the belt to Joey for some cigarettes.

Sunday was a quiet day in comparison. With all the attention on WrestleMania, there weren’t as many shows being held elsewhere in the city. But in the early hours of the morning Beyond Wrestling was running a midnight show. Joey Ryan was pinned by Joey Janela in a Mixed Tag Match. When the show was over Janela was ambushed by The Invisible Man! So right now at the time of writing, The Invisible Man is your Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion!

Fuminori Abe is the latest wrestler to get a Trans-Am ★ Upgrade. For some reason every picture of him that Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi has been posting on Twitter is actually pictures of Maven photoshopped with the rest of the group.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AT THIS TIME, GET EXCITED IN NARIMASU”, 08/04/2017

DDT “FIRST TIME ADVANCE! 2017”, 08/04/2017
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Battle Royal: X Vs X
2. You Will Kill Or Get Hurt! You Will Get Caught Or Killed! Special Single Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Danshoku Dino
3. Spring Big Bang Battle: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Mad Paulie

The annual Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Battle Royal is back! DDT’s answer to both the Royal Rumble and the Money In The Bank is used to determine the next couple of KO-D Openweight Title challengers throughout the summer.

Royce Isaacs will be making his DDT debut on this show. Isaacs participated in the DNA Grand Prix last year and was impressive enough to be brought in for a main tour in DDT.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING”, 14/04/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Dick Togo

The postcard plan Daisuke Sasaki put in place to find a challenger probably worked too well. Dick Togo is stepping up to the plate! Sasaki and his mentor still have bad blood brewing between them over the last year.

BASARA “VAJRA 34 ~LION DASH~”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The Union MAX Title now belongs to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and his first defence takes place in Korakuen Hall. It is Ryota Nakatsu’s desire to win the title because he wrestled in Union Pro for the last year of the brand’s existence but never had the chance to chase after that championship.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TOKYO 2017”, 30/04/2017
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Enjo-gun, Osaka’s First Visit!: Mitomi Masayuki & Shibata Vs Daina Mido & Hiroto Okubo
2. Ganbare Wrestling In OSAKA Special Single Match: Yukinori Abe Vs Hiro Tonai
3. I Return To Chiba’s Grace In Osaka: Minoru Fujita & Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Yasu Urano & MIYAWAKI
4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) Vs Atsushi Maruyama

Earlier this month Ken Ohka won the World Jr. Heavyweight Title over in K-DOJO. The title lineage can be traced all the way back to FMW. Ohka wants Atsushi Maruyama to be his first challenger because he has been an inspiration to Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Also if Ohka wants to be a strong champion he needs to defend the belt against strong challengers so he’s giving Maruyama the home field advantage by holding the title match in Osaka!

7. Road To KO-D! Osaka Family Special Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Antonio Honda when Sasaki submitted Honda with La Magistral Cross Facelock (19:21).

DAMNATION defeated Happy Motels two days in a row with Antonio Honda again taking the fall. This time Honda was beaten by Daisuke Sasaki. Tetsuya Endo said it is a pity that Happy Motels is splitting up but he will not show such feelings to Konosuke Takeshita at their KO-D Openweight Title match next month. Sasaki said with Endo winning the KO-D Title, himself as the DDT Extreme Champion and Mad Paulie’s face suddenly turning red DAMNATION will control DDT!

The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title went back and forth between Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan before their match even took place. Both men were in the ring at the start of the show for the contract signing of the match. The ceremony kept getting sidetracked when Ryan gave pinned Dino with a School Boy and vice versa. Amon Tsurumi got angry because their signatures on the contract wound up getting smudged so he started breaking up the pinfalls. Ryan and Dino ignored him and continued chasing each other around the building. When it was time for their match to begin Ryan was the defending champion. They brawled over to the merchandise stand and threw boxes of shirts at each other. Shigehiro Irie, Makoto Oishi and Yuki Ueno all got caught up in the action. Ueno fought off Dino with a Dropkick while Oishi pulled the back of his shorts down on the top turnbuckle to assume the Hell Gate position. Ryan stuck a lollipop in Oishi, moved it over to Dino’s mouth and Super Kicked him. Then to add insult to injury Ryan pinned Dino with his own Danshoku Driver to stay as the champion. After the match Ryan said he is bringing the Iron Man Title with him to WrestleMania! He and Guanchulo (translating for him) pointed at the non-existent WrestleMania sign until Guanchulo rolled him over with a School Boy. Ryan kicked out, Super Kicked Guanchulo and ran away. Finally Oishi climbed down from the turnbuckle, pulled up his tights and bowed to the audience.

Yukio Sakaguchi thinks he has become to idle and that is resulting in his recent poor match record. There is still time for him to fix this problem before he and Masakatsu Funaki defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles against New No Fear.

Smile Squash are getting adjusted to life without Akito. A win over New Wrestling America helps a little. All three remaining members promised to work hard at keeping the unit together.


The Aftermath Of Saitama Super Arena

March 22, 2017

One day after “JUDGEMENT 2017” all the staff and wrestlers woke up to news that DDT was given two brand new tour busses by the Grace Tourism Corporation. DDT hopes these new busses will help expand their tours nationwide but first Sanshiro Takagi wants to use one to go strawberry picking. One of the busses was immediately used to host a press conference to announce the cards for the rest of March and April.

Takagi gave an update on the announcement that DDT will run the Tokyo Dome. Kind of. The plan is to have a single Street Wrestling match take place inside the arena. No date or match has been decided yet but Takagi would like to have Minoru Suzuki be involved. He wants Suzuki because Suzuki was with him in the ring at Budokan Hall five years ago when Takagi first revealed his intentions of running the Dome. Takagi said the entire building will be open to them so the match can potentially take place on the pitcher’s mound, the bullpen or even the boiler room. However none of this has been cleared with Suzuki yet.

7. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles – New ωrestling Aidoru Vs New Wrestling America: Makoto Oishi, Shunma Katsumata & MAO (c) Vs Shigehiro Irie, Mike Bailey & Joey Ryan

NωA are a little worried that they will be defending the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles so soon after winning them. Even more worrying are their opponents. Shigehiro Irie was inspired by his American excursions to bring together the best American wrestlers he can find. So far he has Joey Ryan and Mike Bailey. Ignore the fact that Bailey is Canadian. Irie calls his new group New Wrestling America and he wants this unit to be like 3 Count from WCW.

7. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – “DDT Is DDT” 20 Years Entertainment Culmination! The Best In The World Bad Guy Decisive Battle Round 2: Danshoku Dino (c) Vs Joey Ryan

Danshoku Dino and Joey Ryan reconciled their differences after their clusterfuck of a match in Saitama Super Arena. But their new friendship fell apart immediately thanks to them fighting over the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Ryan wanted to team with Dino so they could fight together against the Hardy Boyz, the Young Bucks, the Dudley Boyz and the Steiner Brothers. But Dino had to be selfish and not give Ryan the Iron Man Title. Ryan wants to win the title and defend it all over Orlando during WrestleMania weekend. Dino would rather keep the title… oh, and also get revenge for Ryota Yamazato getting his ass destroyed by firecrackers.

DDT “FIRST TIME ADVANCE! 2017”, 08/04/2017
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. You Will Kill Or Get Hurt! You Will Get Caught Or Killed! Special Single Match: Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Danshoku Dino

Dino is juggling a lot lately. He also has a KO-D Tag Team Title shot to prepare for. Part of the preparations involved a match with one half of the champions Yukio Sakaguchi.

DDT “DAMNATION ILLEGAL GATHERING”, 14/04/2017
Shinjuku FACE

1. Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie Vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Kohei Sato
2. DDT Extreme Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

Daisuke Sasaki is inviting wrestlers from all over to apply for a shot at his newly won DDT Extreme Title. Sasaki wants the potential challengers to write him a postcard that clearly states their name, age, occupation, address and phone number along with reasons why they deserve the title shot. Sasaki also wants suggestions for what kind of match the title will be defended in. Postcards must arrive before 24th March and he will announce his opponent on the 25th at the Yokohama show.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2017”, 29/04/2017
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Masakatsu Funaki & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Danshoku Dino
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo

It’s surprising to see this match happen already but Konosuke Takeshita will face his friend turned enemy Tetsuya Endo in his first defence of the KO-D Openweight Title. Endo doesn’t really care about winning the title. He is more interested in making Takeshita’s life miserable and taking the title from him so soon is the perfect way to make him suffer.
