2. Gouma Ryu defeated Stretchman Man by Disqualification when Stretchman refused to break a 5 Count (0:34).
2a. Rematch: Stretchman Man Vs Gouma Ryu ended in a Double Disqualification after a Double Fake Weapon Attack (5:29).
3. Benmaru Tournament 0: Daiki Shimomura defeated Jun Masaoka with the Orange Sunset (10:33).
4. Aikata Vs Bozu! Tag Showdown: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe when Fujita pinned Abe with a Modified Samson Clutch (11:00).
5. Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano when Tanizaki pinned Nakano with the Reverse Implant (13:39).
6. Doki! Hardcore Match Full Of Cans: Isami Kodaka defeated FUMA with the Isamuashi Zan (16:21).

Isami Kodaka was left bloodied but victorious over FUMA in their Hardcore match main event. Steel cans made up most of the weapons available but chairs and a ladder also came into play in a painful manner for both men. FUMA gave Kodaka a Brainbuster from the ladder onto a pile of cans. Later the ladder was bridged across two chairs and FUMA was given a Superplex onto it. Kodaka overwhelmed FUMA with his kicks and knee strikes until the Isamuashi Zan put FUMA away. Kodaka asked for a rematch afterwards. No matter how many times they fight each other, Kodaka always feels a new excitement over it. Kodaka ended the show by inviting the BASARA roster into the ring to hype up their next big show at Korakuen Hall on 21st September. Kodaka also talked about his upcoming trip to America for a death match tournament held by Game Changer Wrestling. He promised to win it and become the world’s best death match wrestler!

Ryota Nakatsu admitted he was disappointed with today’s performance when his team lost to Naoki Tanizaki’s side. Tanizaki added insult to injury after the match when he attacked Tanizaki and gave him the Implant. That made Nakatsu angry and more determined to take the Union MAX Title from Tanizaki at Korakuen.

Match #4 turned playful when Ikuto Hidaka ended up sitting on Minoru Fujita’s shoulders. That then encouraged Fuminori Abe to climb onto Ryuichi Sekine’s shoulders so the two teams could play a game of chicken in the ring. Cavalry were able to knock Hidaka off Fujita’s shoulders. The play time ended when Fujita gave Sekine a Low Blow. When Abe fell off, Fujita rolled him into a Samson Clutch for the three count.

Daiki Shimomura used a new arm assisted cradle move called the Orange Sunset to beat Jun Masaoka and win the Benmaru Tournament. Shimomura called Kodaka down to the ring afterwards to confirm there was no prize on the line. Kodaka admitted so. Kodaka then invited Masaoka to wrestle for BASARA on a regular basis including a rematch with Shimomura somewhere down the line. Masaoka nodded in acceptance. Shimomura was content with there being no prize because he has something else he wants. Shimomura wants to team up with Kodaka and form a unit together! The Korakuen card has already been determined so the new unit will have to be formed afterwards. Kodaka then told Shimomura he has to grow a tail until then. If he’s going to do his best to impress Kodaka then Shimomura needs to have a monkey tail growing out of him!

The match between Gouma Ryu and Stretchman Man went off to a bad start when Ryu asked for the match to be changed to a Pro Wrestling Trial. When that was declined, Stretchman pushed Ryu up against the ropes and refused to move away during the 5 count so he got disqualified. An immediate rematch was agreed upon. Stretchman complained to Yuya Okada for counting too slow for his pins. Okada denied such a thing then counted fast when Ryu gave Stretchman a School Boy. Okada later took a ref bump which allowed Stretchman to grab his hook and Ryu to grab his law book. When Okada got back up, Ryu and Stretchman threw their weapons at each other and both faked being attacked by the other. Okada fell for both tricks and disqualified the two of them resulting in no winner. Stretchman demanded a rematch for next time and Ryu told him it will be settled in court!


Introducing Nodoka Tenma, BASARA Gets Ready For Korakuen

August 22, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2 ~NOW IT’S TIME TO ATTACK~”, 25/08/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Hikari & Raku Vs Miu & Hinano
2. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino Vs Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku
3. Hyper Misao Vs Priscilla Kelly
4. Azusa Takigawa Vs Saki Akai
5. Special Single Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Riho
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Reika Saiki & Maki Ito
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Yuu

The big sister Nodoka-oneesan is gone. Taking her place is Nodoka Tenma! Nodoka revealed her new name and her brand new look on Monday. This change is closer to Nodoka’s real personality than her previous gimmick. So far the fan response to her new look has been completely positive. She will also be getting a new entrance song for her first match as Tenma.

BASARA “BASARA 77 ~FEAST~”, 05/09/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Stretchman Man Vs Gouma Ryu
2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Yasu Urano
3. Benmaru Tournament 0: Jun Masaoka Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Aikata Vs Bozu! Tag Showdown: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe
5. Doki! Hardcore Match Full Of Cans: Isami Kodaka Vs FUMA
6. Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano

The main event is a nice mix of veterans and rookies teaming together to continue the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud.

How much has changed since Isami Kodaka and FUMA last fought each other one on one? Normally a match like this would determine a future challenger for the Union MAX Title but this time around I think BASARA will go a different direction. This feels more like a tune-up match for Kodaka before he goes into the steel cage against Masashi Takeda.

It looks like we’re not getting any more Pro Wrestling Trials now that Banana Senga has transformed into Stretchman Man. I don’t think prosecutors are allowed to have a big hook over their hand inside a court room. At least I don’t remember seeing that in Boston Legal or any of the Phoenix Wright games.

BASARA “BASARA 76 ~FEAST~” Results

August 20, 2018

BASARA “BASARA 76 ~FEAST~”, 20/08/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
223 Fans

1. FUMA & SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano & Daiki Shimomura when FUMA submitted Nakano with the Iron Maiden (10:18).
2. Best Stretchman V3, Best Stretchman Amazon & Stretchman Man defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Gouma Ryu & Yasu Urano when Stretchman Man pinned Ryu after the Stretch Kick (10:47).
3. Isami Kodaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Yusuke Kubo when Kodaka pinned Kubo with an Inside Cradle (13:56).
4. Official Tag No. 1 Decision Battle: Ikuto Hidaka defeated Fuminori Abe with the Stray Dog High Kick (16:20).
5. Ryota Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine defeated Naoki Tanizaki & Manabu Hara when Sekine pinned Hara with the Dragon Kick (13:44).

The Dove Pro team tried to protest the result by saying Manabu Hara kicked out before three but the result stood. Naoki Tanizaki wanted to provoke Ryota Nakatsu after the match but Nakatsu was able to annoy him with his replies instead. Ryuichi Sekine wished Nakatsu the best of luck in winning the Union MAX Title on 21st September and he rallied the crowd to give Nakatsu a toast to show their support.

Ikuto Hidaka defeated Fuminori Abe in a match between the current NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champions in ZERO1. There were no bad feelings by either man over the result after the match.

The former Hercules Senga/Banana Senga has transformed into Stretchman Man! He wrestles in his own Best Stretchman costume and also has a large hook over his right hand. Best Stretchman V3 called the transformation a perfect remodel of a wrestler. Stretchman Man used his hook to slash across Gouma Ryu’s chest. He then commanded the two other Stretchmen to finish Ryu off with the double Stretch Kick. V3 told the fans that the strongest trio in BASARA history is now born!

FUMA promoted “FUMA FEST VOL.2” happening on 8th December. He admitted there are no bands or wrestlers booked yet. There isn’t even a date decided for tickets to go on sale. But he is still enthusiastic about the event.

Shigehiro Irie returns to DDT after a let’s say, minor setback during his latest tour of America. He has the KO-D Openweight Title back but I don’t think everyone will be happy enough to forget about what happened.

Shunma Katsumata was supposed to be on the show teaming with Akito but he is out of action with an orbital fracture. Katsumata is expected to miss one or two months before he is cleared to return. Gota Ihashi takes his place in the tag match.

BASARA “BASARA 75 ~AKATSUKA ROKU-KASON~” Results

August 11, 2018

BASARA “BASARA 75 ~AKATSUKA ROKU-KASON~”, 11/08/2018
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall
169 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Benmaru Tournament 0 – Round 1: Daiki Shimomura defeated Akiyori Takizawa with the Swanton Bomb (8:23).
2. Benmaru Tournament 0 – Round 1: Jun Masaoka defeated Takato Nakano with a Thrust Kick (8:10).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Yasu Urano defeated FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Gouma Ryu when Tsukamoto pinned Ryu with a Crab Hold (14:29).
4. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Daisuke Sekimoto ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
5. Sakigake! Iron Family Vs Bloody Brothers!: Masaya Takahashi, Toshiyuki Sakuda & Takayuki Ueki defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Ryuji & SAGAT when Takahashi pinned SAGAT with the Jackhammer (15:14).
6. Cavalry Vs Astronauts!: Ryota Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takuya Nomura & Fuminori Abe when Sekine submitted Abe with the Let’s Combine (17:16).

Cavalry were able to win the main event by having Ryuichi Sekine hold Fuminori Abe in place with a Full Nelson so Ryota Nakatsu could hit him with a High Kick to the head. Abe tried to recover and put Sekine in a Triangle Choke but it was countered into the Let’s Combine for the submission finish. Both of Cavalry admitted they felt jealous of Takuya Nomura after wrestling him, Nakatsu because of his skill and Sekine because he is handsome.

The Bloody Brothers weren’t sure what to make of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Ryuji. They asked each other “What are these people?” when they saw Hiroshi & Ryuji perform yoga in the ring. They were freaked out even more when Hiroshi woke up from his peaceful state during a Sleeper Hold spot and pulled scary faces at everyone.

Twenty minutes wasn’t enough to determine a winner between Isami Kodaka and Daisuke Sekimoto. The two shook hands after their match and teased having a rematch down the line.

Even though Gouma Ryu was the obvious weak link on his team, he still did his best and joined in with the IRON PRIEST spots when he could. He lost the match for his team but FUMA enthusiastically recognised the hard work he put in today. FUMA called it the birth of a new Heavy Metal Warrior. Yusuke Kubo didn’t see things the same way and said today’s result was disappointing. FUMA ignored Kubo and called Ryu a saviour. He then revealed that “FUMA FEST” will return for its second show on 8th December with Gouma Ryu’s law firm as the sponsor! He doesn’t even need permission because he already added the firm’s sponsor logo on the show poster.

Daiki Shimomura announced that with DNA taking a break he will now be wrestling for BASARA! He wrestled in a brand new black costume with some green and orange added to it to mark the new step in his career.

The 6-Man Tag between DDT and Hagure IGF was supposed to be the main event but Kendo Kashin requested the match to be moved down the card because he thinks Gota Ihashi is useless. The DDT team agreed and moved the match to the opener.

Kota Umeda hurt his left foot in his return match and is unable to wrestle tomorrow. MAO was switched over to Umeda’s team to take his place. Kazusada Higuchi takes MAO’s spot on the other team.

*V4 for Naoki Tanizaki.

The final day of Fighting Beer Garden 2018 began with the crossover show between BASARA and Dove Pro. In the main event Naoki Tanizaki put the DOVE World Title on the line against BASARA’s Fuminori Abe. Abe had the support of the entire BASARA roster behind him and it showed when they did a train entrance with Abe down to the ring. The title match broke down after a ref bump which resulted in all of the Dove wrestlers entering the ring to attack Abe. The BASARA wrestlers came to the rescue and got a few digs in on Tanizaki to even the playing field. Abe though he had the match won when he struck the champion with a Rabbit Punch and placed him in the Manjigatame. However Tanizaki countered the hold into the Implant. He then hid the Reverse Implant but Abe kicked out at one! Abe caught Tanizaki in a Crucifix Pin in a last ditch attempt to squeak in a victory but Tanizaki kicked out and hit Abe with the Casanova knee strike. He then hit his Libido Go 2 Sleep variant for the three count.

The overall score on today’s show was 3-2 for Dove Pro. Tanizaki and the rest of Dove Pro rubbed it in after the main event. They came all the way to Tokyo for this? Where’s the energy you get at the Dove shows out west? Ryota Nakatsu confronted Tanizaki in response to this. Tanizaki asked who this guy was and the crowd started chanting for Nakatsu. Tanizaki promoted Dove Pro’s event at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 20th September then assured Nakatsu that he remembers their Union MAX Title match at Korakuen Hall is happening the next day. Isami Kodaka said that he lost to Tanizaki, Abe lost to Tanizaki and Takato Nakano lost to Tanizaki. But Nakatsu will beat Tanizaki! Nakatsu will win the MAX Title and bring it back to BASARA! Even though there is tension between the champion and challenger, things are a little friendlier between Kodaka and Gunso. They thanked everyone for coming to the show and shook hands at the end.

BASARA’s big win of the day came form the Hardcore Tag Match. When Gunso & Kabuki Kid made their entrance they decided to stay away from the ring. That drew Nakatsu & Ruichi Sekine out to them for an arena wide brawl. Chairs and steel boxes were used throughout. Sekine wiped out the Dove team with a big dive outside the ring while Nakatsu delivered a Superplex to Kabuki Kid onto the weapons inside. Nakatsu then finished off Kid with the V Slider onto the chairs to win the match for Cavalry.

Dove’s Rey Paloma decided to put his restaurant Acapulco on the line against one of the BASARA wrestlers. Who he faced was determined by a 4 Way Battle Royal. Gouma Ryu & SAGAT worked together to eliminate Best Stretchman V3. They then turned on and eliminated each other. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi won the match and all he did was practice yoga the entire time! When it was time for Paloma to wrestle him, Paloma thrusted his crotch into Hiroshi’s face while he was still meditating. This annoyed Hiroshi enough to react and put Paloma in different holds. Somehow the moves both wrestlers were doing began to resemble yoga holds. The back and forth continued until Paloma trapped Hiroshi in a Cradle for the three count. The result meant Paloma successfully defended the ownership of his restaurant for the first time. He cheered Hiroshi up by suggesting he can hold monthly yoga sessions at the restaurant.

The rule of the Drunkers Match was Kodaka and Shoichi Uchida both had to drink a shot of tequila after every round until one man was left standing. After Round 7 both men were too hammered to get back up so the match was brought to an end. The winner was then decided by three judges: Yuya Okada, Yuki Aoki and Gouma Ryu. Aoki & Ryu voted for Uchida when he handed them 10,000 yen. Uchida was declared the winner by split decision!

The fighting between BASARA and Dove Pro continued after the opening match.
