Ueno said he will punish the Naomi Kingdom and a win over Yoshimura might end their feud for good.

Shiryu said that Asia is moving quickly with the times. According to him the time for problems between nations, borders and race is over. As proof of this, Shiryu gave Rekka a New Beijing T-shirt as a gift and asked him to represent New Beijing at the next DNA show. Rekka accepted because they are now friends.

At the start of the show Daiki Shimomura pointed out that there are less fans in the crowd than usual today. He encouraged everyone to raise their efforts to have exciting matches for those who came to see them.

*V1 for Isami Kodaka.

BASARA’s first visit to Sapporo was highlighted by Isami Kodaka match against Ikuto Hidaka with the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Title and International Jr. Heavyweight Title both on the line. Kodaka came out wearing the same kind of “flame” mask that Hidaka had worn sometimes. Kodaka was able to bounce back from losing the Union MAX Title earlier in the week by successfully defending his remaining singles titles. After the match Kodaka joked that everybody makes Hidaka look like a fool. Hidaka corrected him and said only he and Yuko Miyamoto do. Kodaka told him that it was an honour to fight him at BASARA’s first Sapporo show. He then gave him 6,000 yen to pay for the “flame” mask he wore for his entrance.

Ryota Nakatsu tried to give Naoki Tanizaki a Cross Armbreaker but it was countered into a Reverse Implant. Nakatsu was able to kick out but a regular Implant after that was enough to keep him down.

*Isami Kodaka fails in V6. Naoki Tanizaki becomes the 10th Union MAX Champion! V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Dove Pro Wrestling is back with a vengeance and they now have BASARA’s championship! Naoki Tanizaki went into the Double Title main event with Gunso in his corner representing Dove Pro. Isami Kodaka came out by himself with the Union MAX Title around his waist. Tanizaki kicked out of the Diving Double Knee Drop as well as the European Clutch. He dropped Kodaka with the Implant several times throughout the match and they eventually took their toll on Kodaka. Tanizaki finally had him beat with the Casanova knee strike followed by the Libido knee lift for the three count. Tanizaki said the title win was for all of the Dove Pro believers who cheered for him today. He feels confident that he has beaten the best that BASARA has to offer. When he said this, Takumi Tsukamoto came out and challenged him to a MAX Title match. When Tanizaki and Gunso left, Kodaka called all of the BASARA home wrestlers to join him in the ring. He thinks Tsukamoto can bring the Union MAX Title back to BASARA but Kodaka still wants to fight Tanizaki one on one again some day. The show is over and BASARA is starting over. They may have lost today but they will come out of this stronger than they were before!

There is something about Ryota Nakatsu that Ikuto Hidaka seems to like. He feels like he is now Nakatsu’s 45 year old uncle and they will still be wrestling each other until Nakatsu can outkick his uncle. Hidaka admits that if today wasn’t a tag match, he would have lost to Nakatsu after he took his V Slider finisher. Minoru Fujita was also impressed by Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine today.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi returned from a long absence as a changed man. He took up yoga to recover from his dislocated shoulder and travelled to India to learn more about the practice. For his first match back Hiroshi went face to face with Osamu Nishimura. Quite a big opponent for him but he stayed calm throughout. Hiroshi meditated while he was put in submission holds to withstand the pain. Soon Nishimura meditated too and they were both inactive for so long that the referee began to count them towards a double knockout. Both stirred and went back to wrestling until Nishimura locked in a Sleeper Hold. Hiroshi tried to meditate again but ended up losing consciousness. Nishimura then easily rolled him into a Cobra Twist to pin him. He told Hiroshi afterwards that he too has visited India many times to learn yoga. The most important lesson is even if the body is destroyed, the soul will continue to live many lives. Hiroshi said he was happy to learn from a guru today. They then sang a song together.

The return of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro rivalry means the return of SAGAT and Gunso fighting each other in Hardcore Matches. SAGAT lost like he tends to but this time it was FUMA who got pinned. SAGAT gave Jun Kasai a Brainbuster from the ladder but Gunso immediately cut him off with the Diving Guillotine Drop. FUMA fought off his opponents until Gunso took him down with a chair shot. Kasai gave FUMA the Reverse Tiger Driver then Kasai & Gunso hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Diving Guillotine Drop to FUMA at the same time for the win. Kasai ripped off FUMA’s heavy metal shirt after the match and threw it into the crowd.

Fuminori Abe had a spirited fight against Minoru Tanaka. During their early exchanges Abe told Tanaka “I believe the B in BASARA stands for Batibati!” then he hit him with strikes. Abe later kicked out of the Superfly at one but was quickly put down with the Sliding D. Tanaka shook Abe’s hand after the match but Abe slapped Tanaka across the face in response. Tanaka didn’t mind it. He said that it was a cheerful match and he likes to face wrestlers with Abe’s style of fighting. He didn’t know what to expect because he never saw anything from Abe before today. It was fun though and if the wrestlers have fun with what they are doing then the fans will have fun watching them.

The rest of the BASARA wrestlers were pitted against the Metal Family in a 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match. The weakest of the BASARA team Gouma Ryu took a beating but Yasu Urano was there to keep the numbers even. Ryu was able to eliminate Trans-Am ★ Tanaka by gutsy luck. Tanaka kicked him from the apron but as Ryu fell he tripped Tanaka and pulled him to the floor with him. That left Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi as the final two. They fought on the apron until Tsukamoto knocked Ryuichi to the floor with the Thrust Kick to win the match for BASARA!

Takato Nakano tried to pin Manabu Hara with several different Cradles but a Cross Armbreaker ended the match in Hara’s favour.

1. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated Daichi Kazato with the Perfect Five (7:53).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Best Stretchman Amazon defeated Gouma Ryu and Hercules Senga when Amazon pinned Ryu and Senga with the Stretch Kick (11:15).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Akiyori Takizawa defeated FUMA, SAGAT & Yusuke Kubo when Tsukamoto pinned Kubo with the Zudon (10:55).
4. Special Single Match: Minoru Fujita defeated Ryuichi Sekine with a Rolling Cradle (10:55).
5. Fuminori Abe Vs Tanomusaku Toba ended in a Double KO (11:15).
6. Isami Kodaka, Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano defeated Naoki Tanizaki, Yuki Aoki & Manabu Hara when Nakano pinned Aoki with a Jumping Rolling Cradle (15:10).

Today was Takato Nakano’s day to win for the first time! He capitalised on Yuki Aoki bumping into a kick from Isami Kodaka by the ropes and pinned Aoki with a Jumping Rolling Cradle. Naoki Tanizaki briefly confronted Kodaka after the match but he left so Nakano could celebrate. Both Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu congratulated Nakano on his achievement and told him it was a big deal. Nakano said he will start running from here to Korakuen Hall for the big show there on 3rd May.

Both Fuminori Abe and Tanomusaku Toba punched each other to their heart’s content. They eventually ran out of that stuff and knocked each other out for a draw. When they both recovered Abe smiled and asked for a rematch.

Minoru Fujita mocked Ryuichi Sekine throughout their match. After the opening back and forth, Fujita asked who was it that trained Sekine. He then called him an “Eternal Trainee” while kicking him. Fujita’s experience was the difference maker and he caught Sekine in a Rolling Cradle for the win. After the match Fujita told Sekine that they have a big tag team match against each other coming up on 3rd May. He asked Sekine & Nakatsu not to miss this opportunity to beat himself and Ikuto Hidaka. Fujita claims that he and Hidaka were nominated for the Best Tag Team category during last year’s Tokyo Sports Awards. He does not want Cavalry to damage this honour.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi asked for the 8-Man Tag Team Match on 3rd May between BASARA and the Metal Family to be held under Elimination Rules. Takumi Tsukamoto and Yasu Urano were confused by Hiroshi’s new spiritual behaviour but they accepted the request.

Best Stretchman Amazon was on trial accused of sexual harassment towards a female customer in the Best Stretch store. It was difficult to get an explanation from Amazon because he just yelled out his name whenever he was asked a question. Hercules Senga provided a hidden recording of Amazon asking a customer if he could touch her breasts. However the voice in the recording was lower than how Amazon usually speaks. Gouma Ryu asked both Amazon and Daichi Kazato to demonstrate their massage techniques on Senga to see if they are legitimate. No matter where they touched him, Senga claimed he was being sexually harassed. Gouma then made the grave mistake of claiming that the customer might have enjoyed the massage from a BASARA wrestler because she is a BASARA fan. All the women in the audience booed him. Amazon also didn’t like the statement so he knocked out both Ryu and Senga with Stretch Kicks. The judge declared that Senga was not guilty.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi stood outside the ring for the opening match and distracted Daichi Kazato with his yoga poses. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi took advantage and hit the Perfect Five on Kazato to win the match.

The first round matches of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ were determined in an odd fashion. Each wrestler threw a numbered ball into the audience. The fans that caught a ball each picked a different spot on the playoff bracket. Afterwards the wrestlers were told which numbers represented them and who they would paired up with. The opening round matches are FUMA Vs Daichi Kazato, Yusuke Kubo Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Manabu Hara Vs Takato Nakano, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Akiyori Takizawa, Isami Kodaka Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu Vs Minoru Fujita, Gouma Ryu Vs Fuminori Abe and Yasu Urano Vs SAGAT.

7. BASARA’s 12.12.12: SAGAT defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Goregrind (10:42).

Every singles match on this show had a 12 minute time limit. SAGAT scored a big victory in the main event over Ryota Nakatsu. He avoided the V Slider and dropped Nakatsu with a Death Valley Bomb. With over a minute left to go, SAGAT hit the Goregrind and got the three count. When his celebration was done, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi entered the ring with a brand new look. This was his first appearance in BASARA since his travels to India so he could learn yoga. He reintroduced himself to the crowd and said that everyone in the Metal Family have been in suffering and they should learn yoga to free themselves. FUMA thought Hiroshi went to Indonesia and said they have a good heavy metal scene over there. Hiroshi began singing a hymn that put FUMA, SAGAT and Yusuke Kubo into a trance. He then told everyone he will return at Korakuen Hall on 3rd May.

Isami Kodaka Vs Manabu Hara was the only match using the 12.12.12 rules to end in a time limit draw. Hara said that is was difficult for him to find his rhythm because of the time limit. He usually finds it after 10 minutes but in this case having only two minutes remaining to go out and win threw him off.

Hercules Senga & Gouma Ryu fell apart as a team when they collided by accident. The Best Stretchman team then hit Ryu with a Double Stretch Kick to win. Senga refused to have another rematch with them. Instead he wants to take them to court with the ultimate goal of banishing them from BASARA! Ryu promised to defend the Stretchmen in the Pro Wrestling Trial.

Tomoya Kawamura made an appearance at the beginning of the show to talk about the end of his contract with BASARA. He explained what led to his decision to leave and admits he feels selfish over it. However he still intends to wrestle in the future and hopes that his path will bring him back to BASARA some day.

Nakatsu drilled Katsumata with a Head Kick then threw him over with a Dragon Suplex. Iwasaki finished him off with the Vertical Drop Brainbuster for the three count.

The Naomi Kingdom had mixed results in the first round but their presence was felt for sure. Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo eliminated Gran MilliMeters to advance to the semi final. However Keisuke Okuda & Kengo got themselves disqualified against Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda. Okuda & Kengo kept assaulting their opponents until the referee tried to stop them. They turned their attacks to the referee and got themselves DQ’ed as a result.

Choun-Shiryu & Rekka were plagued by bumping into each other multiple times late in the opening match. Rising HAYATO got them to collide one more time and MAO hit Rekka with the Michinoku Driver I to win the match. Shiryu & Rekka argued with each other as they walked away from the ring. Backstage Rekka says Taiwan and China do not match. He now hates Chinese people and doesn’t want to team with a Chinese wrestler ever again!

The semi-finals on 5th April are MAO & Rising HAYATO Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Akiro Jo and Yuki Ueno & Koju Takeda Vs Kouki Iwasaki & Ryota Nakatsu. MAO said his team will control DNA with young power. HAYATO usually doesn’t get many chances to wrestle inside Shin-Kiba 1st RING. He wants to win the tournament so he can wrestle there more often. Nakatsu told everyone he is only here to win the prize money.

Minoru Tanaka used his match against Mizuki Watase to prepare for his GHC Jr. Tag Team Title shot at the 11th March NOAH show. He went through his normal preparation by eating bento steak before the match. He was impressed by Watase and even believed he could have lost to him. Tanaka said he would like to wrestle him again then came up with an idea to have a tag team match next time. He is available to appear at “DNA 43” on 5th April.
