1. Raw Oysters, Grilled Oysters, Steamed Oysters 3 Way Match: Yoshihiko defeated Antonio Honda and Kazuki Hirata when Yoshihiko pinned Hirata after the Miracle Ecstasy from Makoto Oishi (11:00).
*Yoshihiko wins Kazuki Hirata’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
2. Asuka, Kenshin Chikano & Lowther defeated Yukio Sakaguchi, Masahiro Takanashi & Rey Paloma when Asuka submitted Paloma with a Cradle (7:36).
3. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated Toru Owashi, Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Endo submitted Ueno with the Modified Yurikamome Hold (11:41).
4. HARASHIMA & Takeshi Okada defeated Keisuke Okuda & Makoto Oishi when HARASHIMA pinned Oishi with the Somato (9:22).
5. Kota Umeda defeated Yuki Iino with two PKs (10:21).
*Kota Umeda wins Yuki Iino’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
6. Soma Takao defeated Akito with the Official Endless Waltz (11:10).
7. Hiroshima Specialty! Jingi Naki Special Tag Match: Kazusada Higuchi & Bull James defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Higuchi pinned Katsumata with the Doctor Bomb (14:40).

Bull James thanked Kazusada Higuchi for teaming with him today. He wants Higuchi to team with him again anytime. Higuchi replied that he doesn’t understand English at all. James also praised Konosuke Takeshita and thinks he can go wrestle all over the world.

All the DAMNATION members at ringside celebrated when Soma Takao beat Akito. Takao was critical of The Moonlight Express for wrestling at K-DOJO instead of DDT today (The Express successfully defended the STRONGEST-K TAG Titles against Dinosaur Takuma & Kotaro Yoshino). He wonders if that means The Express hates Hiroshima. If so then the anger of Hiroshima’s citizens will follow Takao and help him destroy MAO & Mike Bailey!

Two more movements happened with the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlets. Kota Umeda defeated Yuki Iino to take the Yellow Gauntlet. Umeda notices all of the younger wrestlers his age have been joining up in the different units lately while he has stayed independent. Umeda thinks he is better off on his own. That way he can keep his momentum going while competing with the rest of his generation. Yoshihiko won the Blue Gauntlet with some help from his handler Makoto Oishi. When Kazuki Hirata noticed how much help Yoshihiko was getting from Oishi, Hirata aimed for Oishi instead. Oishi fought back, hit the Miracle Ecstasy and threw Yoshihiko on top for the pin.

Naomi Yoshimura had to be held back from starting a fight with DAMNATION after their match.

Although Rey Paloma was defeated, he lifted everyone’s spirits up by dressing Yukio Sakaguchi up in his entrance clothes while his music played.

1. Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata defeated Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko when Oishi pinned Hirata after the Reincarnation from Yoshihiko (8:40).

6. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Tag Match Without Humanity: Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi defeated Daisuke Sasaki & Tetsuya Endo when Takanashi pinned Sasaki with the Takatonic (14:26).

The back and forth between Daisuke Sasaki and Masahiro Takanashi continues with both wrestlers attempting each other’s finishing moves during the main event. This time around Takanashi was able to hit the Takatonic to pin the KO-D Openweight Champion. Takanashi told the crowd afterwards he will beat Sasaki again later this month to become the champion.

Antonio Honda & Rey Paloma lost to DAMNATION when they both charged in to do Bionic Elbows only to hit each other by accident. The two both made up for it by dancing with each other after the match.

The team of Kazuki Hirata & Yoshihiko also had problems working together except this one completely fell apart. Yoshihiko was taking care of Makoto Oishi & Shunma Katsumata until Kazuki Hirata stepped in and knocked down his partner in the process. Yoshihiko got angry and gave Hirata the Reincarnation. Oishi then piled on top of them to pin Hirata.

Danshoku Dieno greeted the fans at the start of the show. He was upset that he couldn’t remember anything by being in his hometown of Hiroshima. Hisaya Imabayashi tried to remind him of his college days in the region but Dieno got a headache and had to leave the ring. Despite his amnesia, Dieno was able to take part in an autograph signing during the show.

5. DOVE World Title – Crash! BASARA x DOVE Battle: Naoki Tanizaki (c) defeated Fuminori Abe with the Libido (17:54).
*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.

1. Naoki Tanizaki, Yuki Aoki & Kouhei Kinoshita defeated Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano when Tanizaki pinned Nakano with the Implant (12:09).

5. TLC 4 THE HARD WAY – DOVE World Title Challenger Decision: Fuminori Abe defeated Isami Kodaka, Kabuki Kid and Gunso when Abe grabbed the prize (13:15).

The feud between BASARA and Dove Pro transferred over to Dove’s shows with a series of matches pitting the two sides together. The main event featured two wrestlers from each promotion but it was every man for themselves because they fought in a TLC Match with a DOVE World Title shot on the line. Fuminori Abe was the odd man out because of his lack of experience in hardcore wrestling but he was able to adapt. Gunso and Kabuki Kid were too focused on fighting each other at the top of the ladder to defend themselves from Isami Kodaka. He knocked them out of action and then climbed the ladder to get the contract. However Abe stopped Kodaka and twisted him into the Octopus Hold at the top of the ladder. Abe was then able to pull down the contract while he was applying the move to win the match. The champion Naoki Tanizaki encouraged Abe to plan their title match for 5th August in Shinjuku.

The power of yoga defeated the power of ecstasy when Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi won over Rey Paloma. Hiroshi convinced Paloma to try some yoga during their match but Paloma ended up resisting it. However his attacks left him open for Hiroshi to trap him in a Samson Clutch for the 3 count.

Naoki Tanizaki got some momentum over Ryota Nakatsu when the two clashed in a trios match. The BASARA team put the Dove team in trouble with a triple submission spot but Tanizaki recovered to pin Takato Nakano with the Implant. After the match Nakatsu motioned that he will win the Union MAX Title from Tanizaki.

Overall BASARA won the day with three wins to Dove’s two. “brother” YASSHI increased Dove’s early lead with a win over SAGAT. But from Match #3 onwards BASARA won the rest of the matches.

6. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie defeated HARASHIMA, Yukio Sakaguchi & Masahiro Takanashi when Endo pinned Takanashi with the Shooting Star Press (13:03).
7. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Tag Match Without Humanity: Kazusada Higuchi & Antonio Honda defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Higuchi pinned Watase with the Doctor Bomb (13:21).

When the main event was over, Antonio Honda interviewed Kazusada Higuchi in the ring. He asked Higuchi how he feels after every win against Irie-gun. Higuchi says he always gives his full effort and wants to continue this momentum all the way to Korakuen Hall. Higuchi also thanked the fans in attendance today for cheering him on. Honda then asked Higuchi what was it like to team with Antonio Honda today? Higuchi says Honda is a wonderful person but he isn’t interested in him talking about “Gon, The Little Fox” all the time. Higuchi ended the interview by saying he will beat Shigehiro Irie for the KO-D Openweight Title at Korakuen.

DAMNATION taped HARASHIMA by his hands to the ring post so they could get a numbers advantage. The plan worked and DAMNATION got the win. They continued to attack HARASHIMA after the match and choked him with a collar.

Hiroshima natives Danshoku Dieno and Rey Paloma wanted to face Osaka’s Konosuke Takeshita in a comedy 3 Way Match. Shenanigans included each wrestler crotching themselves on the ropes and having their shorts pulled down. Takeshita was about to give Paloma the German Suplex when Dieno stopped him with a Lip Lock and trapped him in the Gay-do Clutch. Dieno held onto the ropes for leverage to get the three count. Even though Paloma didn’t win, he declared the match a victory for Hiroshima. Takeshita joined in the fun by putting on Paloma’s entrance gear then he danced with him.

As soon as Kenshin Chikano won the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title, his entire team began to squabble over the belt. The title moved to Takeshi Okada while Naomi Yoshimura failed over and over to become the champion. When Okada though he had escaped with the belt, Makoto Oishi snuck up with a Low Blow and a School Boy to steal the title from him.

Some of the DDT wrestlers are beginning to wise up to Hiratimo Dragon’s match plan. Yuki Ueno didn’t fall for his unmasking tactic. However Saki Akai did and it cost them the match. Progress is being made but it’s not a lot.

Shunma Katsumata said Kota Umeda is strong but they are not 1:1 equal.

6. Hiroshima Specialty! Special Honorable 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Soma Takao & Mike Bailey defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Takao pinned Sasaki with the Gin And Tonic (16:01).

More chairs went flying between Daisuke Sasaki and Soma Takao. Sasaki introduced one to the main event and used it on Takao outside the ring and also when the referee was distracted. The tide turned when HARASHIMA and Mike Bailey wiped out the rest of DAMNATION with dives. There was no one to save Sasaki when Takao pinned him with the Gin And Tonic. Takao said the last time he was in Hiroshima he lost his match (to Mad Paulie) so the victory today made him a lot happier. Takao, HARASHIMA and Bailey all promised to win their matches at Korakuen Hall on Thursday.

Local wrestler Rey Paloma got some of the spotlight during DDT’s visit to Hiroshima. Before his match began, he and a few of the other wrestlers spoke about their family histories. Paloma revealed that he learned of a technique used by his ancestors known as the Three Arrows. It involves three people pressing their knuckles into the victim’s head at the same time. Paloma’s attempts to use the technique with Shigehiro Irie & Antonio Honda did not work until Paloma created a new Mark II version. He trapped Makoto Oishi in a Figure Leg Lock then he, Irie & Honda all swiveled their waists together until Oishi could not bear them anymore. The new technique worked and Paloma’s team picked up the victory.
