BASARA “BASARA 126 ~OSAKA CAMP SPRING TAISHO~”, 28/03/2020
Osaka Azalea Taisho Hall

1. Takato Nakano Vs Jun Masaoka

4. Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
5. Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita
6. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Naoki Tanizaki

Meanwhile the nutjobs in BASARA are thinking they might be small enough to fit under the cracks and run their shows as usual. Tomorrow’s show seems to be going on as scheduled. The most recent update from them today is a safety message for those with tickets.

Speed Of Sounds defend the IRON FIST Tag Titles against Sparky.

DDT “PROTECT THE ELDERLY FROM THE NEW CORONAVIRUS! KYOU CLINIC PRO WRESTLING”, 30/03/2020
Saitama Medical Corporation Anzukai Kyou Clinic

1. Falls Count Anywhere 4 Way Tag Match: Shinya Aoki & Makoto Oishi Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs MAO & Mike Bailey Vs Gorgeous Matsuno & Gabai Ji-chan

How in the fuck did this not get cancelled?!? The change here is going from a 6-Man Tag to a 4 Way Tag with the addition of The Moonlight Express.

BASARA “BASARA 127 ~KAGUNDZUKA NO SAKURA~”, 05/04/2020
Chiba 2AW Square

1. Takato Nakano Vs Yasu Urano
2. Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Masato Kamino Vs FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Shigehiro Irie
4. Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine Vs Kengo Mashimo & Shiori Asahi
5. Ryota Nakatsu & Daiki Shimomura
6. Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga Vs Fuminori Abe & Tetsuo Usui

Fuminori Abe is the new Union MAX Champion but he only won it because Masahiro Takanashi suffered a freak injury two minutes into their match. Takanashi is giving Abe his support because hey, this is the pro wrestling business. Injuries happen all the time and winning a championship that way doesn’t make it any less legitimate in Takanashi’s eyes. Abe has promised to remain the champion until Takanashi recovers from his fractured fibula.

If this Chiba show goes ahead, Abe could be fighting against the current IRON FIST Tag Champions. That match will also be Tetsuo Usui’s first proper main event (excluding a bonus multi-man tag back in January).

Masahiro Takanashi injured his ankle two minutes into the main event and the match had to be stopped. He fractured his fibula and tibia while he was grappling with Fuminori Abe on the ring mat. Abe was awarded the Union MAX Title and Takanashi tried to encourage him by saying he deserved it. Abe promised to remain the MAX Champion until Takanashi recovers so they can have a rematch for the belt.

Sparky faces Speed Of Sounds for the IRON FIST Tag Titles on 28th March.

Antonio Honda was invited to wrestle at “FUMA FEST VOL.4” on 11th April.

2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Yasu Urano Vs Masato Kamino & Tetsuo Usui
3. Isami Kodaka Vs Shigehiro Irie
4. FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Daiki Shimomura
5. Fuminori Abe Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Fuminori Abe hasn’t been pinned since December. Ryota Nakatsu is coming off of a loss to Isami Kodaka. I’m thinking Abe is closing in on a Union MAX Title shot.

DDT “ISN’T IT DRAMATIC 2020”, 24/02/2020
Nagoya City East Sports Center

1. Hiroshi Yamato Vs Keigo Nakamura
2. Soma Takao & Mad Paulie Vs Kazuki Hirata & Yukio Naya

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. Ganpro World Tryout: Shin Suzuki Vs E10

4. Ganpro Vs Pro Wrestling BASARA Full Battle: Kouki Iwasaki & Washi Sakurai Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Tetsuo Usui
5. Ganpro Vs TTT Full Battle: Ken Ohka Vs Guts Ishijima
6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Yumehito Imanari

For fuck sake Guts Ishijima, stick to one affiliation please! He formed TTT (Total Triumph Team) in December and the promotion held its first show on 25th January. That explains why the Real GUTS Army angle got a bit wonky for the last couple of shows with the enemy team constantly changing its name and intentions.

With THE HALFEE idea now put on the shelf, Shuichiro Tominaga & Moeka Haruhi are going back to their regular ring names. However Shuhei Washida has taken to the name Washi Sakurai and wants to stick with it.

When Shota went on tour in Australia last year he wrestled for a promotion called Pro Wrestling Power in Cairns, Queensland. One of the locals who caught his attention goes by the name of E10. He is coming over to Japan later this month for a tryout in Ganbare☆Wrestling. E10 is 178cm tall, weighs 77kg and his signature moves are the Side Effect and the Frog Splash.

DDT “DRAMATIC SHINYURESE 2020”, 28/02/2020
Kanagawa Shinyuri Twenty One Hall

1. HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Hiroshi Yamato
2. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: MAO Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Akito

Two big singles matches are set for Kanagawa. If it happened today then Akito’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet is on the line. MAO might be the KO-D Openweight Champion by the time the show takes place.

DDT “DDT DOES NOT KNOW GUNMA YET 2020”, 29/02/2020
Gunma Yamada Green Dome Maebashi Sub Event Area

1. ALL OUT Vs Eruption!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai
2. The First Leap Year Of Reiwa! Inevitable Laughter Once Every 4 Years Ultra Super Mechanko Special 4 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Kazusada Higuchi
3. Akagi Mountain Is Also Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Special Single Match: Yutaka Yoshie Vs Yuki Iino

Big boys collide in Maebashi! Yutaka Yoshie made his first appearance in DDT last year in a comedy match involving a daruma and a kokeshi. This time it’s a more serious challenge in the form of Yuki Iino.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STAND PROUD”, 01/03/2020
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. International Princess Title: Thunder Rosa (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima

A message was sent to the Tokyo Joshi Pro office by Thunder Rosa earlier today. She nominates Shoko Nakajima as the No. 1 Contender for the International Princess Title. The two previously faced each other for the Princess Of Princess Title back in May last year. Nakajima won the match and Rosa wants revenge. She thinks she has the upper hand because this time she is the champion and Nakajima is the challenger.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Chris Brookes Vs Maku Donaruto
2. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

There’s another Australian heading over to Japan soon, this one for DDT. Melbourne high flyer Royce Chambers will be in DDT from 1st to 20th March. His acrobatic moves and matches from Melbourne Championship Wrestling have been getting attention online and impressed the likes of Konosuke Takeshita. DDT is bringing in Chambers on Takeshita’s recommendation. Chambers is 180cm tall, weighs 86kg and has only been wrestling for two years.

Yuni closes out the childhood portion of his wrestling life by facing his career rival Kazuki Hirata.

Thanks for sticking with DDT, Brookes. Here’s Maku Donaruto for you.


MAO Vs HARASHIMA Or Tanaka? How Many Right To Challenge Gauntlets? Who Is Showing Up Now?

January 24, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 25/01/2020

DDT “SWEET DREAMS! 2020”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Soma Takao, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Masahiro Takanashi, Mizuki Watase & Keigo Nakamura

4. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Time Difference Battle Royal: Daisuke Sasaki Vs Tetsuya Endo Vs Danshoku Dieno Vs Makoto Oishi Vs Yukio Naya Vs Antonio Honda Vs Shinya Aoki Vs Yasu Urano
5. Special Single Match To Have Naomichi Marufuji Remember Your Name: Naomichi Marufuji Vs Kazuki Hirata
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Chihiro Hashimoto & Yuki Iino
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Masato Tanaka

Even though he won the D-Ou Grand Prix and was undefeated throughout the tournament, Masato Tanaka will not consider himself the strongest wrestler in DDT until he beats HARASHIMA to win the KO-D Openweight Title. He realises that the circumstances around this weekend’s match is very different from the 30 minute draw they had back in December. HARASHIMA claims he fought to win that time but still had fun, perhaps too much of it. This time he wants to fight like the champion he is.

Yuki Iino is fired up to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles on his own. He doesn’t trust Chihiro Hashimoto and she doesn’t trust him. Hashimoto has since made comments calling Iino an idiot that has made him angry.

Naomichi Marufuji still does not remember ever meeting Kazuki Hirata or having drinks with him. Hirata handed over a pair of Hirata GO! glasses to jog his memory but Marufuji broke them instead.

Three Right To Challenge Gauntlets are up for grabs in the Battle Royal. The match will end when all three prizes are claimed. However they don’t seem to be the only Gauntlets around this time.

BASARA “BASARA 118 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE DAY~”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano
2. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano Vs Daichi Kazato Vs Masato Kamino
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Ryuichi Sekine Vs SAGAT
5. Isami Kodaka Vs Tetsuo Usui
6. IRON FIST TAG Match: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs FUMA & Yusuke Kubo

Over at BASARA the crew is putting on a same day doubleheader. On the afternoon show the IRON FIST TAG Titles are on the line in a rematch between new champions Speed Of Sounds against the former champs IRON PRIEST.

BASARA “BASARA 119 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE NIGHT~”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. 6-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: SAGAT, Tsutomu Oosugi & Masato Kamino Vs Daiki Shimomura, Yasu Urano & Akiyori Takizawa
2. Takumi Tsukamoto, Banana Senga & Tetsuo Usui Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Daichi Kazato
3. FUMA & Takato Nakano Vs Yusuke Kubo & Fuminori Abe
4. Isami Kodaka Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The evening show looks a bit random other than the main event. That match is between the two wrestlers who failed to win the Union MAX Title from Masahiro Takanashi. If the match set up is good enough for Kota Ibushi and Jay White then it’s good enough for Isami Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu.

DDT “VALENTINE ITABASHI SERIES 2020”, 01/02/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Match: Yuki Iino Vs Mizuki Watase

4. Beloved Hometown! Itabashi Specialty Special 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda Vs MAO & Makoto Oishi

Apparently there’s three more Gauntlets for a total of six?

We know MAO will be facing the KO-D Champion in February but DDT aren’t taking any chances for one of the preview matches. MAO will face both HARASHIMA and Tanaka in a 3 Way Tag no matter who the KO-D Champion is after this weekend. Tanaka is bringing in his old FMW buddy Tetsuhiro Kuroda to team with him.

Cody Hall and Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

DDT “IBARAKI DE IKAPPEYO KATSUPE 2020”, 02/02/2020
Ibaraki Kasumigaura Cultural Gymnasium

1. Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai Vs MAO, Makoto Oishi Vs Keigo Nakamura
2. DDT Megatonweight Single Match: Cody Hall Vs Yuki Iino
3. ALL OUT Vs DAMNATION!: Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie
4. Ibaraki Hero Hayato “Mach” Sakurai & Tanomusaku Toba Triumph! Kasumigaura Specialty 6-Man Tag Match: HARASHIMA, Hayato Sakurai & Tanomusaku Toba Vs Masahiro Takanashi, Mizuki Watase & Yukio Naya

MMA fighter Hayato “Mach” Sakurai returns to DDT after making a few visits to the promotion just over a year ago. Last time he accompanied Tanomusaku Toba to coach him from ringside. This time he will join him inside the ring to wrestle a match.

5. GanJo Vs DDT Wrestling Classroom Full Battle – Secret Captain’s Fall 6-Woman Tag Team Elimination Match: Moehiko Harumisawa, HARUKAZE & Asuka Vs Cherry, Yuu & Banny Oikawa

The surprise opponent for Cherry is Asuka! The original plan was to reveal her on the day of the show but Ganbare☆Wrestling pushed ahead to announce her due to fans not wanting to wait that long.

Daisuke Kiso is making the main event a Secret Captain’s Fall Elimination match. The match will end when a team captain is eliminated. The twist is no one knows who the captains are until the elimination happens.

Kiso only found out recently that HARUKAZE does not own a judo jacket. She might have to borrow one from Gota Ihashi.

Moeka Haruhi had to be renamed Moehiko Harumisawa after a 3 Way Match gone wrong yesterday. More on that below.

Yesterday a match was held between Moeka Haruhi, Shuichiro Katsumura and Shuhei Washida where the loser had to change their name. A contested result ended up with all three wrestlers changing their name. As mentioned above Haruhi is now Harumisawa, Katsumura is now Katsuzaki Shunosuke and Washida is now Washi Sakurai. Together the trio are called THE HALFEE.

Speed Of Sounds become the second team to hold the IRON FIST TAG Titles. It did not take long for IRON PRIEST to ask for a title rematch.

Kota Umeda announced he will return to pro wrestling and will make more appearances in BASARA. Umeda is a former DDT wrestler who quit pro wrestling last July in to focus on working for his family’s business.
