BASARA “VAJRA 30 ~WINTER SUMMER BLUE~”, 20/02/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
174 Fans

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Shinya Ishida defeated Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi when Hiroshi pinned Kazato with the Perfect Plex (10:05).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when Hagane pinned Maruyama with La Bufadora (12:54).
3. Metal Special Match: Minoru Tanaka defeated Yusuke Kubo with the B”D”F (10:42).
4. Ryota Nakatsu, Koji Iwamoto & Fuminori Abe defeated Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Tatsuhiko Yoshino when Iwamoto pinned Yoshino with the Aloof Art (11:34).
5. Hardcore Match: Gunso defeated SAGAT with a Chair Attack (13:14).
6. Union MAX Title: FUMA (c) defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Jawbreaker (17:56).
*V1 for FUMA.

FUMA was victorious in the main event but Ryuichi Sekine isn’t going to take it easily. Sekine yelled at FUMA after the match and swore that he will eventually win the Union MAX Title from him. The other members of Cavalry had to restrain Sekine and help him walk away from the ring. FUMA joked that his own hair was the same length as Phil Anselmo’s from his heyday in Pantera. He then proclaimed himself the “KING OF METAL WRESTLING”.

Gunso is quickly making a name for himself in BASARA. He defeated SAGAT in a Hardcore Match, even surviving a pre-match ambush from his opponent. His fighting style is called “Dub Wrestling” and music played as the two wrestlers battered each other with chairs. SAGAT was eventually worn down until Gunso finally threw a chair right at his face to keep him down long enough for the three count. Even then the two traded Heabutts with each other after the match.

Even though Koji Iwamoto is still a part of Cavalry, he entered the ring wearing an All Japan T-shirt. Today was his first appearance in BASARA since becoming affiliated with AJPW. Isami Kodaka, Takumi Tsukamoto & Tatsuhiko Yoshino were described as looking like Japanese tourists in Paris. They wore sunglasses, backbacks and had selfie sticks. Kodaka had enough with the silliness and broke his stick but Yoshino then yelled he needed that for work! Kodaka proceeded to take his smartphone and use it as a weapon while Yoshino panicked over it getting damaged. Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto found Yoshino so annoying they turned on him. Even the referee Yuya Okada got a dig in when Yoshino wasn’t looking. They all joined in with Cavalry for a Train Attack on Yoshino then counted along to Iwamoto pinning him.

Yusuke Kubo had a special opponent today, it was Minoru Tanaka! The two had a back and forth match that Tanaka won with a Diving Double Stomp he calls the B”D”F.

Today’s wrestling trial was a fraud case that was fresh off the oven. Hagane came to Shin-Kiba 1st RING to be in the Fighting Musical MAKAI show. When that was over he decided to stay in the building for the BASARA show. By doing so he avoided paying the entry fee and was accused of fraud. Hagane said he normally introduces himself as Madoka and wrestles in BASARA anyway. Atsushi Maruyama admitted that Hagane is a nice name. Further questioning turned into advertising for MAKAI’s next show in Shinjuku FACE on 2nd March. The trial broke down and turned into a match where Hagane pinned both Matsuyama and Gouma Ryu with La Bufadora (Springboard Moonsault). Hagane was then declared innocent.

Shinya Ishida’s luggage was stolen before the show so he arrived at the building without his wrestling gear. Luckily for him Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi gave him spare American style wrestling tights that would temporarily transform Shinya Ishida into Trans-Am ★ Ishida. The new look was a confidence boost and the Double Trans-Ams won their match against Daichi Kazato & Tsutomu Oosugi.

*Cavalry fails in V2. The Aldini Brothers become the 23rd NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champions!

The Aldini Brothers have reclaimed the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles! The champions Cavalry almost won when Ryota Nakatsu hit a Sliding Kick to Takumi Tsukamoto. However Isami Kodaka stopped the pin with the Diving Double Knee Drop. Tsukamoto slipped out of the V Slider and gave Nakatsu the Tiger Suplex for the pin. Kodaka said described winning the belts from Cavalry made the victory even more meaningful. Tsukamoto said that together he and Kodaka will raise the prestige of the titles and also of BASARA.

Court was in session for the latest of Gouma Ryu’s Pro Wrestling Trials. Konaka = Pale One of all people took the case seriously. Gone was his ghostly facepaint and replacing them were a pair of glasses an a tie. He was the prosecutor accusing Mammoth Handa of faking an injury to avoid wrestling at a show last August. Ryu argued that Handa is passionate about pro wrestling but Kodaka told him he’s never seen Honda at practice. Tomoya Hasegawa was called to the ring as a witness. Kodaka noticed that he was wearing women’s underwear beneath his regular clothing. Hasegawa explained he borrowed his sister’s underwear because his own went missing. He then said Handa missed the show in August because of a traffic accident. But as he talked about this he accidentally revealed that he was driving to a Stardom show that day instead of the other show. Everyone attacked Hasegawa and piled on top of him for the pin. Hasegawa was then declared guilty.

Ganbare☆Wrestling held tryouts earlier this week to find new talent to add to its roster. The auditions involved workouts, interviews and skill demonstrations. At the end Ken Ohka asked all of the trainees to line up and slap him across the face. Some hesitated but everyone did what they were told. All nine people passed the auditions and were invited to train at Ganpuro with the goal of debuting for them in the future. The person who caught the most attention was a 21 year old woman wearing a hockey mask named Nanaka Kawamura. She wants to become a pro wrestler because it was her mother’s dream to be one. Her mother was high school champion but was too short to turn professional so Kawamura wants to fulfil that dream for her.

DDT is considering lifting its ban of fan recordings at its live shows. A trial run will take place at the Nerima show. Fans in attendance will be allowed to record video as long as they film just the matches (no entrances because of music rights). Fans can only use phones (no tablets or cameras) that are held below eye level and nobody is allowed to deliberately film other people in the audience. Depending on results and feedback DDT will experiment with these rules as time goes on.

Soma Takao now finds himself as the hottest free agent in DDT. Units all around are falling over themselves to sign him so a 6 Way Match will determine where he goes. Whoever wins will have their unit recruit Soma. If Soma himself wins he gets to choose who to join, which is most likely Smile Squash. But T2Hide and NωA badly want him. That’s not all, Rekka wants Soma to be the ace of his home promotion New Taiwan Pro Wrestling. T2Hide promises to make him their leader. NωA want him because he has a higher singing voice that none of the other members have. Last but not least, Saki Akai wants Soma to sign with the Oscar Promotion talent agency. Akai calls Oscar the largest unit in the wrestling world.

Kotatsu was asked to comment on its Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title defence but it kept silent.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GIRLS FIGHT OUT #3”, 18/02/2017
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. “Back Bancho” Akane Miura Road To Graduation: Akane Miura Vs Maho Kurone
2. SIN Biishiki-gun Vs Konkatsu-gun: Saki-nami & Martha Vs Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko

Akane Miura announced today on her 20th birthday that she will be graduating from Tokyo Joshi Pro on 25th March. Miura was given an offer to go back to senior high school in April and she wishes to complete her education. She is unable to wrestle and concentrate on her studies at the same time so she had to make a decision. She had previously dropped out of high school but desired to return and thinks now is the perfect time in her life to do it. When she graduates in four years time she’ll consider returning to pro wrestling. She will continue to fight hard until her final match. Her next opponent is Maho Kurone who was upset to hear the news. One of the reasons Kurone came to Tokyo Joshi was to eat Miura. Now that Miura is leaving, Kurone promises she will only eat her hair and eyeballs.

There was even more sad news today. Azusa Takigawa and Nonoko were told to stop using issues of Zexy Magazine as a weapon in their matches. Zexy’s editorial department got in contact with Tokyo Joshi over the gimmick. While they appreciate having Konkatsu-gun as regular readers, they do not like their magazine being used as a weapon. Konsho-gun apologised to the editors and readers of the magazine and promised not to use Zexy for anything other than its intended purpose. They will refrain from using it as a weapon. Both Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko were crying their eyes out as they apologised. Zexy was their bible and now they feel like they just ended a relationship. The team is now in crisis. If they are no longer allowed to use marriage information magazines then can they still be called Konkatsu-gun (Marriage Army)?

5. NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu (c) defeated Ikuto Hidaka & Sean Guinness when Sekine submitted Guinness with the Let’s Combine (24:17).
*V1 for Cavalry.

Cavalry successfully fended off the outsider team of Ikuto Hidaka & Sean Guinness to keep the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Titles around their waists. Guinness tried to pin Ryuichi Sekine with a Hurricanrana but it was countered into the Let’s Combine, forcing Guinness to tap out. Ikuto Hidaka accepted defeat on this day but warned Sekine that the next time he is in BASARA he will leave as the winner. He reminded everyone that he and Dick Togo were the first NWA Light Tag Champions. So they will team up again to win back the titles! The Brothers Aldini then came down to the ring. They are the current No. 1 Contenders after beating Hiroshi du Soleil earlier in the show. Both they and the champions are now motivated even more knowing that the winners of their match next week have Hidaka and Togo waiting for them.

That wasn’t the end of it though. FUMA interrupted the closing speeches yelling “HELL! HELL! HELL AND HELL!” He confronted Sekine for their upcoming Union MAX Title match on 20th February. Sekine said he hadn’t forgotten about it. FUMA insulted Sekine’s shaved head, saying it is nothing like Anthrax member Scott Ian’s sophisticated skinned head. Sekine told FUMA that by the end of the month he will become a double champion, the King of Two Crowns!

6. FIRST GIG MAIN EVENT “THE POWER”: Kazusada Higuchi & Akebono Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Yuji Okabayashi

A big main event is in store. Not just in physical size but in ego too. Naomi Yoshimura attended the match announcement wearing sunglasses and a fancy suit. He didn’t care about Akebono’s sumo accomplishments and ran down Kazusada Higuchi for losing to Mike Bailey and Ryota Nakatsu late last year. He threatened to blow away anyone who stands in his path. Higuchi was more polite. Being in the presence of Akebono is enough encouragement to withstand whatever Yuji Okabayashi throws at him. Akebono warned Yoshimura to respect him or be crushed.
