Shin-Kiba 1st RING

2. Great Reversal Pro Wrestling Preliminary Preparation For Trial: Gouma Ryu defeated Atsushi Maruyama with an Inverted Reverse Splash (5:44).

4. Hardcore Tag Match: Gunso & Naoki Tanizaki defeated Isami Kodaka & SAGAT when Gunso pinned SAGAT with the Diving Guillotine Drop from the Ladder (18:31).
5. Double ★ Trans-Am Vs Cavalry!: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Ryuichi pinned Sekine with the Perfect Five (15:40).
As the ride to Korakuen Hall nears its end, BASARA had one more show to get past before the big event. The Trans-Am ★ Family were victorious over Cavalry with one Ryuichi pinning another. Ryota Nakatsu called Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi a strong wrestler but then claimed he knew his real identity. Nakatsu accused him of being Ryuichi Kawakami from Big Japan! Ryuichi denied the accusation but Nakatsu told him he didn’t care either way. When Nakatsu said he wants nothing more than the Union MAX Title, Ryuichi cut him off and said he loves the belt more.
Dove Pro Wrestling scored a big win over BASARA in a Hardcore Tag Match. Gunso’s impressive win streak in BASARA continues to grow while Naoki Tanizaki was happy to finally get his hands on Isami Kodaka. Tanizaki and Kodaka will fight again on 4th May.
Both Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama weren’t in the mood to compete in their warm up match for Korakuen Hall later this month. Neither of them had anything prepared for the bout. Kodaka, Best Stretchman V3 and Tatsuhiko Yoshino all had to motivate them into wrestling each other. The match only ended with a winner when the referee accidentally knocked over Maruyama and pushed Ryu on top of him. Gouma and Maruyama explained afterwards that they just cannot be motivated to wrestle if a criminal trial is not attached to it.
The Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament returns later this year. Kodaka is putting 500,000 yen of his own pocket money into the prize pot. The tournament begins on 4th May and lasts until 5th July.

1. IRON PRIEST Vs Double ★ Trans-Am: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Abe when FUMA pinned Abe with the Heavy Metal Anthem (8:59).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: PSYCHO defeated Gouma Ryu and Konaka = Pale One when PSYCHO pinned both Ryu and Konaka with the High Fly Bomb (8:49).
3. Hardcore Match: Gunso defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Jorge Clutch (13:31).

5. Cavalry Vs Hiroshi du Soleil: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT when Nakatsu submitted SAGAT with the Cross Armbreaker (12:42).
Ryota Nakatsu sent a message to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi after the main event. Nakatsu said he is gaining confidence and in good shape but he didn’t get what he wanted today because Ryuichi wasn’t here. He wondered if Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is related to Ryuichi Kawakami because he saw Kawakami carrying the Union MAX Title at a Big Japan show earlier in the week. No matter, Nakatsu will take the title from whichever Ryuichi at Korakuen Hall instead.
Nobody got a bigger hero’s welcome on this show than Best Stretchman V3. His entrance had loads of streamers and plenty of people cheering for him. His opponent Isami Kodaka couldn’t help but say how funny the situation was. The two traded stretching submission holds until Kodaka caught Stretchman with the European Clutch for the win. It was at that point when Stretchman discovered that you will lose a wrestling match by having your shoulders pinned down for three seconds. He thanked “Hardcore Samurai” for a great learning experience and now he understands the rules of pro wrestling.
Gunso’s dominance in BASARA Hardcore Matches continued with a big victory over Takumi Tsukamoto. Gunso ambushed him before the match then fought back and forth with chairs and a ladder. Tsukamoto tried to hit the Tiger Suplex but Gunso countered it into a School Boy for a nearfall. When Tsukamoto kicked out Gunso turned the move into a Jorge Clutch and this time got the three count.
PSYCHO was put on trial accused of using multiple identities to exploit promotions out of their fight money. PSYCHO would allegedly disguise himself as mute wrestlers even though he can plainly speak. His opening comments simply involved him mumbling about baseball. Gouma Ryu’s defence was PSYCHO cannot wrestle because he is an ordinary man and ordinary men do not wrestle. Konaka = Pale One objected and called Ryu an ordinary man who wrestles. Ryuichi Sekine and Isami Kodaka were brought in as witnesses. Kodaka accused PSYCHO of attempting to murder him with a Choke Slam one time in K-DOJO. When Ryu heard this he refused to defend PSYCHO any further. This led to PSYCHO attacking both Ryu and Konaka and he pinned both of them with the High Fly Bomb. The judge declared PSYCHO was Not Guilty.
The newest member of the Trans-Am unit did not make a good first impression. Trans-Am ★ Abe came out wearing sunglasses and a leather jacket, acting like he was The Rock. The leather jacket turned out to be his downfall because it would not come off properly when he gestured for the People’s Elbow. He bungled the move and missed, allowing IRON PRIEST to put him away. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi yelled “You’re Fired!” at Abe after the match. Abe begged for one more chance. Hiroshi offered to give him one but only if Abe kisses his ass. Abe abandoned his pride and kissed Hiroshi’s ass but was then given the Stunner. Hiroshi then announced that Trans-Am ★ Tanaka will debut as the group’s newest member on 29th April.
There is a new rookie in BASARA who is ready to make his debut. Takato Nakano introduced himself at the beginning of the show. Nakano is 22 years old and describes himself as not the dexterous type. He was surprised when Isami Kodaka entered the ring and announced he will be Nakano’s opponent for his debut match on 29th April.

6. DDT Foods Strongest Store Decision Falls Count Anywhere 3 Way Match: Isami Kodaka & Akito defeated KUDO & Gota Ihashi and Soma Takao & Makoto Oishi when Kodaka pinned Ihashi with the Diving Double Knee Drop from the south stage (11:58).
Today’s show was the last call for Tavern Wrestling before BASARA takes over the format for their own events in Shin-Kiba 1st RING later this year. The ring announcer Rikiya Shindo kicked off the show by asking if everybody was already drunk, then he held a toast for the final Tavern Wrestling show.
A wild 3 Way Tag Match fought under Falls Count Anywhere Rules main evented the show. Isami Kodaka took a page out of his recent team mate Keiji Muto’s playbook and hit a Shining Wizard to Gota Ihashi. Meanwhile KUDO laid out Makoto Oishi, Soma Takao and Akito on separate rows of the southern bleachers. Kodaka knocked KUDO off and stepped on each of the wrestlers as he climbed up to the top. From there he jumped over all of them to hit the Diving Double Knee Drop on Ihashi for the victory. Kodaka promised after the match that the BASARA shows under this format will be even more crazy.
The Union MAX Title now belongs to the Trans-Am group! FUMA’s title reign was cut down thanks to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. The challenger did well to block and avoid the Jawbreaker kick throughout the closing minutes. His Lariats were the difference maker and FUMA was too dazed by them to do anything. That made it easy for Ryuichi to pick him up and drop him down with the Perfect Five. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi declared that “The Champ Is Here!” as the crowd chanted “USA!” But Ryuichi Sekine then appeared to challenge the new champion. Ryuichi is strong but Nakatsu thinks he is stronger. He was only a trainee when Union Pro closed down but he strongly wants to win the title. Ryuichi called Nakatsu a young boy and accepted the challenge. Nakatsu picked the date and location, Korakuen Hall on 29th April!
Alliances were quickly formed and broken during the 5 Way Match. Wrestlers kept pairing up with each other to double team the opposition then a betrayal would happen so someone could pick a “new friend” to help them. In an awkward moment Joey Ryan ended up grabbing Sayaka Obihiro’s chest then commented on how flat she is. Obihiro froze with shock and was out of it for the rest of the match. Ryan later pinned Cherry while Yusuke Kubo tried to comfort Obihiro outside the ring.
Daichi Kazato is now the Best Stretchman V3. He wrestled in a loud orange and blue superhero bodysuit and used a lot of stretching submission moves on his opponents. With a triumphant debut, Stretchman is now looking forward to creating a stir in BASARA and protecting the world from evil.

5. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT defeated FUMA & Hagane when Ryuichi pinned FUMA with the Perfect Five (14:03).
Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi in English demanded a Union MAX Title shot after pinning FUMA in the main event. After FUMA accepted and left the ring, Ryuichi, the other Trans-Ams and SAGAT all celebrated to the American national anthem.
Minoru Tanaka took the NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Title belt and raised it in front of Takumi Tsukamoto’s face after beating him. The Aldini Brothers will be defending the titles against Tanaka and Koji Kanemoto in Zero1 tomorrow.
The 3 Way Match allowed Daichi Kazato and Tsutomu Oosugi to explain the advantages of stretching and how it can improve a wrestler’s abilities. However they are currently worried about overdoing it so Gouma Ryu attacked them to see if they were right. However as he did this a tablet flew out of Kazato’s mouth. He admitted it was Sulpiride and he takes it to get rid of his anxiety. Without it he started losing his temper so Ryu and Oosugi teamed up on him to calm him down.

Since Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was wrestling in Taiwan for DDT, he sent Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi to take his place on the BASARA show happening on the same day. Takumi Tsukamoto called out to Ryuichi after the match and he talked about how they used to team together. He now wasn’t looking at Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, he was looking at Ryuichi Kawakami. Tsukamoto challenged Kawakami to a match at BASARA’s Christmas Day show at Korakuen Hall. Tsukamoto wants to show how strong he has become ever since he joined BASARA.
Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi sent a message from Taiwan to be read at this show. It was an announcement that SAGAT will take on Jun Akiyama on Christmas Day! SAGAT was stunned at the news but found the courage to say he will beat Akiyama. Then he immediately took that back.
Cavalry challenged Abdullah Kobayashi, Takayuki Ueki & Masaya Takahashi to a Yokohama Shopping Street 6-Man Tag Team Titles match on Christmas Day. But there’s an extra surprise. Koji Kanemoto will be on Cavalry’s team!
FUMA and Masamune were provoking each other into a fight after Match #3.
