Danshoku Dieno will be in attendance for an autograph session. DDT is warning fans that due to Dieno’s memory loss, they cannot guarantee what his signature will look like from autograph to autograph. They also don’t know what messages Dieno will write on them so it’s probably best for fans to clearly request what they want him to say.

BASARA “BASARA 82 ~FEAST~”, 17/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. 3 Way Match: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Ryuichi Sekine Vs Jun Masaoka
2. Best Stretchman V3, Best Stretchman Amazon & Stretchman Man Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Takato Nakano & Yasu Urano

5. Sento Minzoku Vs Ganbare☆Wrestling: Minoru Fujita & Daiki Shimomura Vs Keisuke Ishii & Shota
6. Union MAX Title: Ryota Nakatsu (c) Vs SAGAT

Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizara are the two men joining Ryota Nakatsu for his new unit. The Nakatsu Gundan will hit the ground running by going against the Iron Family for their first show together.

I think this is the first time a Tenkaichi tournament match will be held outside of ZERO1. It’s normal for the tournament’s opening round to consist of only a handful of matches while the majority of entrants join in at Round 2. Ikuto Hidaka has a long history with Tenkaichi, winning it three times. Fuminori Abe is entering for the first time and will be in the unique position of having the home field advantage in the opening match.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TOTAL RECALL 2018”, 22/11/2018

His role at the next Ganpro show is to film more footage for the video using Michael Moore’s style of film making.

BASARA “BASARA 81 ~WIND, CLOUDS AND RAINBOW~” Results

November 4, 2018

BASARA “BASARA 81 ~WIND, CLOUDS AND RAINBOW~”, 03/11/2018
Chiba Blue Field
127 Fans

1. Kaji Tomato defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Speed (7:28).
2. FUMA, SAGAT & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Yasu Urano when SAGAT pinned Tsukamoto with the Goregrind (16:40).
3. Yusuke Kubo defeated Jun Masaoka with the Death Metal Roll (11:56).
4. Sento Minzoku Vs FITNESS BEAUTY: Ryuichi Sekine & Minoru Fujita defeated Yuji Hino & Yuta Suzuki when Sekine pinned Suzuki with the Ryusetsu (16:55).
5. NEW GENERATION TAG MATCH: Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano when Nakatsu pinned Nakano with the V Slider (12:53).

After the main event Ryota Nakatsu noted that a lot of people in BASARA are getting up to stuff outside of the company. He pointed to Fuminori Abe entering the Tenka-Ichi tournament in ZERO1 and Daiki Shimomura asking for an Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title shot on 23rd November. Nakatsu isn’t concerned about all of that. He wants to keep his focus inside BASARA and will do that by defending the Union MAX Title on 17th November. Nakatsu never said who he was facing but he didn’t need to. SAGAT entered the ring and attempted to hit the Goregrind on Nakatsu but he moved out of the way! SAGAT got up and told Nakatsu he wanted the title shot because he is the only one from Union still in BASARA yet to challenge for the belt. Nakatsu accepted the challenge. He also announced the formation of his new unit. For now it will be called Nakatsu Gundan and the unit will consist of three members including himself. The other two will be revealed on 17th November. Nakatsu hopes the unit will have a proper name by the time BASARA returns to Chiba Blue Field in January.

Minoru Fujita has new gear to fit in a little bit more with the rest of Sento Minzoku. The match mostly centred around tension between Ryuichi Sekine and Yuta Suzuki. They put aside their differences after the match. Yuji Hino then decided to have some fun by trying to pull Sekine’s tail off. Sekine escaped with his tail but was left in a lot of pain.

Takigawa’s Graduation Match, STRONG HEARTS Seek Championships, Oishi The Bodyguard

October 22, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN ONE”, 27/10/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Nodoka Tenma & Hinano Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Hikari
2. Yuki Aino Vs Raku
3. Yuna Manase Vs Miu
4. Special 8-Woman Tag Match: Miyu Yamashita, Reika Saiki, Yuu & Hyper Misao Vs Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki, Shoko Nakajima & Maki Ito

Two firsts for Tokyo Joshi Pro are happening on this show. We’re getting a 4 Vs 4 Tokyo Joshi tag match for the first time. We are also getting a 1 Vs 16 match for the first time to celebrate Azusa Takigawa’s graduation. No further details yet have been given on how the match will work. Other companies have done special gauntlet matches for their retiring wrestlers in the past where every round only has a one minute time limit and the chosen wrestler goes through all opponents no matter how much they win, lose or draw. I guess it will be something similar here.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI KORAKUEN HALL SPECIAL!!”, 28/10/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs El Lindaman
2. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Joshi Battle Royal: Yuki Arai (c) (w/ Makoto Oishi) Vs Saki Akai Vs Maki Ito Vs Cherry Vs Emi Sakura Vs Yuki Kamifuku Vs Mizuki
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie (c) Vs CIMA, T-Hawk & Duan Yingnan
4. DDT Extreme Title – Wrestling Rules: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Shinya Aoki
5. Special Tag Match: Naomichi Marufuji & Konosuke Takeshita Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Shuji Ishikawa

The new KO-D Openweight Champion has been drinking non-stop in celebration since winning the title yesterday. Daisuke Sasaki doesn’t remember much about the last 24 hours because of this. His prize money is already gone because he recently spent 4 million yen on things including a brand new car. The prize money from the main event was 2 million yen by the way. Sasaki hopes his victory was enough to impress both Laura James and Candice LeRae. His first defence is confirmed to be against the Dramatic General Election winner at Korakuen Hall on 25th November.

Danshoku Dieno has not been seen or heard from since the ending of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2018” when DAMNATION locked him into a coffin. Sasaki ordered Nobuhiro Shimatani to go burn it when the show was over. Dieno is not expected to appear at Korakuen this weekend.

With ALL OUT swept aside, STRONG HEARTS are sticking around in DDT so they can win a championship. CIMA’s goal is to become a champion one more time before he turns 41 at his next birthday. The group has chosen the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles as their target. CIMA, T-Hawk and Duan Yingnan will be the trio challenging DAMNATION in the match. T-Hawk said STRONG HEARTS share everything together. That is what makes them the strongest unit. Yingnan is hoping to bring a championship back to Shanghai. CIMA calls Konosuke Takeshita the standard of DDT. It is up to the rest of the DDT roster to prove they are better otherwise they will only disappoint CIMA. Tetsuya Endo admitted that Takeshita beating CIMA yesterday would have been a happy ending for all of DDT, except for Endo because he still hates Takeshita to death. All of the attention should now be on DAMNATION because of the championships they hold. Also Endo believes that Mad Paulie will be the key wrestler to watch when the match happens. This is all bringing back awkward memories for Soma Takao. Back when he was a college pro wrestler he was called BIMA and he was, yes you guessed it, a CIMA parody. Shimatani was more than happy to tell CIMA that over and over when the two teams met at today’s press conference. The letter B is above C for a reason according to Shimatani.

Shimatani’s posturing was quick to annoy El Lindaman. The two argued back and forth about their short heights until they were booked to face each other.

Makoto Oishi has offered to help SKE48 idol Yuki Arai defend her Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title in the Joshi Battle Royal. The reason is Oishi loves idols, especially ones named Arai. This must be fate! It’s enough for Arai to trust him at least. Maki Ito is already upset with Arai because she never introduced herself to her, even though they only met today when Ito stormed the conference. Ito finds that disrespectful because she is Arai’s senior in the idol world.

“ALL DOIN”, 09/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tiger Mask V (Self-Proclaimed) Vs Pero Pero Master
2. Eririn Takagi, Monster Halloween & ONAKIN Vs MEN’S Teioh, HARASHIMA & Shota

MEN’S Teioh was chosen by Sanshiro Takagi to be the executive chairman of the “ALL DOIN” committee. HARASHIMA is considered one of the strongest wrestlers in Japan’s independent scene so why not put him on the show celebrating independent wrestling? Shota also has a lot of experience in that section of the industry.

I’m not sure who Pero Pero Master (ぺろぺろ親方) is. Google isn’t offering much.
