6. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Fuminori Abe with the Majigatame Type 1244 (19:09).
*V2 for Isami Kodaka.

When Fuminori Abe asked for a Union MAX Title shot he wanted to find out how far he has progressed since he started wrestling in BASARA. The champion Isami Kodaka was more than happy to oblige. Abe put up a good fight but Kodaka outwrestled him and made him submit to a Manjigatame. Kodaka told Abe that his body aches but the match was fun. Abe said even though he lost he was able to prove he enjoys wrestling more than anyone else. Kodaka agreed but told Abe he needs to take the next step. It’s fun now but Abe needs to grow to enjoy it even more. Kodaka told him there are only a handful of moments in his 15 year career when he experienced true ecstasy. Abe said there is no chance he can be compared to Munenori Sawa right now but his goal in the next few years is to go beyond Sawa then he can challenge Kodaka again.

IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family have joined forces to become the Metal Family! For their first match together Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, FUMA & SAGAT came out to “(You Can Still) Rock In America” by Night Ranger. SAGAT also got into the swing of things by bringing a guitar with him to play during the entrance. He countered Ryota Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and won the match with the Goregrind. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted words of praise to SAGAT afterwards. Phrases like “Good job!”, “Gore of the year!”, “Feel so good!” and “I’m coming!” which was then corrected to “Home coming!”

Both Hercules Senga & Takato Nakano asked Best Stretchman V3 to return Tsutomu Oosugi but Stretchman told them that Oosugi wanted to team with him. In the match itself Stretchman blocked a low kick from Senga and Oosugi rolled on top of Senga with a School Boy to pin him. Afterwards Senga asked Oosugi if he wanted to win so badly that he was willing to team with Stretchman. He then took out a promotional Speed Of Sounds photo to try and tug Oosugi’s emotional strings. When Stretchman saw the photo he finally realised that Senga and Oosugi are a tag team. He then had a brainstorm. The three of them can team up together! Senga refused because he does not want to conform to the Best Stretch style. Senga told the two he will see them in court on 6th January!

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.1 ~WRESTLE ’EM ALL~” Results

December 10, 2017

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.1 ~WRESTLE ’EM ALL~”, 09/12/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
238 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Nakatsu Dickinson defeated Takato Nakano with the Powerslave (8:43).
2. Jinbeizamen defeated Yngwie “SAGA” Malmsteen with the Buzzsaw Kick (7:03).
3. Rock ‘N Roll Cowboys Sudden Hell Match: Ricky Fuji Vs Ryuselmo Sekine ended in a Time Limit Draw (666 seconds).
4. Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto defeated Yusuke Kubo & Hagane when Miyamoto pinned Kubo with the Moonsault (10:25).
5. Goregrind Match: Jun Kasai defeated FUMA with the Pearl Harbor Splash (18:27).

The Goregrind Match featured electric guitars, a drum set, a ladder and lighttubes placed around the ring. Jun Kasai headbutted the lighttubes into FUMA then gave him the Reverse Tiger Driver and the Pearl Harbor Splash to win. Kasai had fun but got on the audience’s bad side when he said he doesn’t know much about heavy metal music. He invited FUMA over to FREEDOMS for a match some day. FUMA was happy with how the event turned out and said “FUMA FEST is forever immortal!”

The Rock ‘N Roll Cowboys Sudden Hell Match allegedly comes from Texas. To win the match you have to pin your opponent for one second then perfectly sing a rock song. However there is a 666 second time limit and neither Ricky Fuji or Ryuselmo Sekine could complete the task in time.

Nakatsu Dickinson, Yngwie “SAGA” Malmsteen and Ryuselmo Sekine were all introduced as a distant relatives of famous heavy metal musicians.

Heavy metal comedian Hashiyama Maiden hosted the show and did a skit before the main event where he headbanged next to a metal fan and got his long hair entangled in it.

10. Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai – Final: X Vs X

Isami Kodaka had a few more surprises left for the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai. Colt Cabana and Ayako Hamada are late additions to the tournament. Hamada accepted the invitation so late that she never knew about the tournament’s gimmick until she visited Kodaka to confirm her involvement. She’s disappointed that she won’t be able to wrestle a normal match unless she reaches the final.

What are those rules? There will be no ring ropes attached for the matches in Rounds 1 and 2. Victory can be achieved by pinfall, submission or ring out. The ropes will be attached for the semi-finals but the ring out rule will still be in effect. The final will be a regular match with no countouts.

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.

1. Nakatsu Dickinson Vs Takato Nakano

4. Yusuke Kubo & Hagane Vs Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto

FUMA wants his match with Jun Kasai to be violent but it needs to be more radical than just a Hardcore Match. So he has created the Goregrind Match. It’s a Hardcore Match with Heavy Metal weapons involved. FUMA describes it as a brutal kind of Death (Metal) Match. FUMA will also be performing vocals for Dragon’s Den during the concert portion of the show.

Jinbeizamen will be coming out to a cover of the Accept song “Fast As A Shark” performed by Crucified.

4. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION Full Battle PART 3 ~Bet On All~: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Ken Ohka

It’s reached the point where it is all or nothing for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. He is willing to put everything on the line against Daisuke Sasaki to win back the Independent Jr. Title. His marriage, his family, his remaining wealth and Ganpuro itself are all at risk! But a gamble this big against an opponent so uncaring has caught the attention of the rest of DAMNATION so now they are coming along for the ride!

Sumire Natsu has beaten HARUKAZE in two straight matches but both wins were under shady circumstances. Natsu only accepted one more rematch when she made Ohka pay for her bullet train tickets to and from the show. Also if Natsu wins then she will replace HARUKAZE as the regular women’s wrestler on the Ganpuro roster. Ohka has gotten his own little dig in against Natsu by giving her the nickname “Shabby Thick Makeup”.

*V1 for Isami Kodaka.

Ryuichi Sekine prepared himself for a today to be special. He was in proper wrestling gear, had his hair freshly dyed blonde and had his sights set on winning the Union MAX Title. Sadly for him Isami Kodaka had other ideas. The one move Sekine had that could definitely beat Kodaka was the Let’s Combine Crab Hold but Kodaka was able to either reach the ropes or avoid the move entirely. Sekine tried to combat Kodaka’s Isamuashi kicks with his own Middle Kicks but the champion would not be beaten. Both wrestlers were spent after the match but agreed that they had a fun match together. Kodaka announced his next title defence will take place in March next year. He was then interrupted by a voice asking “Can I be a bit greedy?” The voice was Fuminori Abe and he entered the ring. He said during his time here in BASARA he had wanted to test himself and find out how pure a wrestler he can be. He now wants a singles match with Kodaka to discover how far he has progressed although he was hesitant to ask until now. Kodaka asked Abe if he is certain he could beat him. Abe said he is. Kodaka accepted Abe’s challenge and decided he will put the MAX Title on the line against him on 14th December. Abe then pulled out an envelope. It was an invitation letter for the upcoming Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. He confessed that he stole it from Kodaka’s luggage while Kodaka went out for a smoke earlier. Abe wanted three things: a singles match with Kodaka, a Union MAX Title match and a place in the Budokai tournament. Kodaka promised to fulfill all three requests for Abe.

The 6-Man Tag was a battle between BASARA and HEAT-UP. It broke down to where Daichi Kazato and Kazuhiro Tamura were the ones left in the ring. Kazato had Tamura beaten with the Sister Abigail when Fuminori Abe broke up the pin and trapped Kazato in an Octopus Hold. Kazato submitted, making the HEAT-UP team the winners. Both Takumi Tsukamoto and Kazato were frustrated by the loss and both said the HEAT-UP wrestlers have no guts. Tsukamoto is also annoyed that HEAT-UP might be selling more posters than BASARA at shows.

Early on in the Ryota Nakatsu Vs Minoru Tanaka match, Tanaka threatened to break Nakatsu’s hobby horse. Other than that the two had a serious match. Tanaka escaped from Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and countered with a Jumping High Kick. Nakatsu still showed life after taking a Tiger Suplex and some Buzzsaw Kicks but was down and out after Tanaka gave him the B“D”F Diving Foot Stomp.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi seems to be turning over a new leaf since he lost the Union MAX Title. He hugged the referee Yuya Okada at the start of his match because it was so long since he last saw him. He also wished FUMA a “Merry Christmas” after Body Slamming him. Even though he and SAGAT lost the match to IRON PRIEST, he was still happy to see FUMA & Yusuke Kubo again too. He said the Trans-Am ★ Family and IRON PRIEST have been fighting each other all year so it was time for them to let bygones be bygones and shake hands. SAGAT pulled his hand back and shouted “Woooooo!” thinking Ryuichi would do the same but he was on his own. Ryuichi punched SAGAT for misbehaving and they then did the Heavy Metal hand signs with IRON PRIEST.

The reputation of Guts Ishijima and his Guts World promotion were put up to questioning by Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama and their court of law. Maruyama accused Ishijima of defying the Labour Standards Act by forcing his workers to have a pro wrestling mentality. Maruyama’s evidence was Daisuke retiring and Toshihiko Yoshino leaving the promotion. Ryu’s defence of Guts World was “It’s a nice group.” He asked Takumi Tsukamoto what he thought of the company because he wrestled there before. Tsukamoto said he wanted to quit. Yasu Urano gave a similar answer when he was asked the question. Ishijima described his post-show antics as “Showa Style” and it involved eating and drinking until they threw up. Fuminori Abe was asked about those drinking parties and he said he couldn’t remember much outside of losing his wallet. Ishijima invited both Ryu and Maruyama to wrestle at a Guts World show. They all shook hands until Ryu and Maruyama attacked Ishijima. He fought them off with a Double Lariat and then pinned Maruyama with the Facebuster. Judge Kyohei Wada declared Ishijima was innocent.

Akiyori Takizawa came here from ASUKA PROJECT for a rematch against Takato Nakano. Their previous match took place earler this month and just like then, Takizawa won the match. This time Takizawa used a Reverse Double Chickenwing submission called the Sleng Teng to make Nakano give up.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Gouma Ryu read through the line up of wrestlers entering the 3rd Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament being held in Korakuen Hall on 28th December. The entries so far include Yasu Urano, Isami Kodaka. Naoki Tanizaki, Yuko Miyamoto, Riho and Hideki Suzuki. Fuminori Abe would take a spot later in the show as already mentioned above.
