5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Blessed Edition~: Ryuji Ito & GENTARO defeated Isami Kodaka & Ryota Nakatsu when GENTARO pinned Kodaka with a Lou Thesz Back Drop (18:50).

Isami Kodaka was put through the wringer by two of his seniors as his 15th Anniversary series continued. He & Ryota Nakatsu were defeated by GENTARO & Ryuji Ito. Kodaka was crushed by Ito’s Dragon Splash and was then given a Lou Thesz style Back Drop by GENTARO. Kodaka fought through the pain to rise back to his feet but another Back Drop put him down for the count. GENTARO apologised to Kodaka because he forgot it was his 15th Anniversary. GENTARO remembered seeing Kodaka fight Kengo Mashimo in one of his first wrestling matches for K-DOJO. He is amazed to watch him grow into a great wrestler. Ito congratulated Kodaka too but then bragged that he and GENTARO are both celebrating their 18th Anniversary this year.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi used Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s Perfect Plex to win the 3 Way Tag Match. Hiroshi praised him for using the move backstage afterwards. After all, it is the perfect finishing move. Ryuichi said that today he blew his “American Big Magnum”. Next month at Korakuen Hall, Ryuichi’s “Big Magnum” will blow off Kodaka’s thin arms!

Hercules Senga was thrilled to bring Speed Of Sounds back to BASARA but was annoyed to learn that he would be fighting against Tsutomu Oosugi instead of teaming with him. When he pinned Best Stretchman V3 to win the match, Senga demanded he give Oosugi back to him. Stretchman refused and told Senga to bring a stronger partner next time. He wants to fight Senga as many times as possible. Senga said he will and he promised he would rescue Oosugi eventually. Oosugi seemed okay with the whole situation. To him it was just a match.

7. MAO & Rekka Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Kengo

Naomi Yoshimura’s teasing and troublemaking has reached another level when he visited DDT’s headquarters for an interview. He arrived carrying an unconscious Full Face into the room and dumped him onto a chair. He then announced who his true tag team partner for his match at the next DNA show will be. It’s Kengo from Michinoku Pro! Kengo entered the room and gave his reasons for teaming with Yoshimura. He’s been looking at all of the DNA roster’s Twitter accounts and found most of them boring. They’re always either training, cooking or taking care of their hair. This is supposed to be pro wrestling and this lot are just plastic personalities. The only guy in DNA he likes is Yoshimura because he is self-asserted. He was even approached by Yoshimura directly to ask him about teaming together. And to show how threatening they are together, they brought a gift in the form of the unconscious Full Face. Yoshimura took off his helmet and it was revealed to be the Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda with his face scribbled all over! Yoshimura threatened to do the same to Hisaya Imabayashi when Rekka came in tried to rescue him. Yoshimura shrugged him off and with Kengo, left Rekka in a beaten heap.

Yuki Ino will go through a 7 match series. First up is Shigehiro Irie!

BASARA “VAJRA 44 ~RED~”, 26/08/2017
Aichi Sportiva Arena
86 Fans – No Vacancy

1. FUMA defeated Takato Nakano with a Crab Hold (8:39).
2. Lawyer Aims For Best Stretchman V3!: Best Stretchman V3 defeated Gouma Ryu with a Camel Stretch (9:05).
3. Yasu Urano & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT when Tsukamoto pinned SAGAT with the Zudon (13:44).
4. Cavalry Vs Sportiva Army: Shinya Ishida & Fuminori Abe defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Abe pinned Nakatsu with a Cradle (14:26).
5. Isami Kodaka defeated Yusuke Kubo with a Backslide Pin (29:33).

Midway through the main event Isami Kodaka decided to wrestle barefoot. He also removed his arm bands. Yusuke Kubo saw what he was doing and decided to do the same with his boots and elbow pads. The match came close to finishing with a time limit draw but Kodaka used a Backslide to pin Kubo in the last 30 seconds. The two shook hands and hugged each other afterwards.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi is still injured so Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi took his place in Match #3. He offered a handshake to Yasu Urano and told him “I respect you!” in English. But when Urano went to shake it, Ryuichi pulled his hand back and yelled “Woooooooo!” SAGAT ended up dropping the fall to Takumi Tsukamoto.

There was confusion between Best Stretchman V3 and Gouma Ryu over what their match would be. Stretchman thought it was a stretching exhibition while Ryu thought Stretchman was being put on trial. There was nobody around to be the prosecutor so Ryu decided it would be a civil trial. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi appeared all upset that his shoulder injury is preventing him from wrestling at an upcoming All Japan show (he really has bad luck with that company). Everything makes his shoulder hurt from feeling the wind blow against it to drinking alcohol. Stretchman ignored Hiroshi’s complaints and began exercising. Ryu stopped him and accused Stretchman of injuring Hiroshi during their match on 23rd August. As such, Stretchman owed Hiroshi money to pay for his damage. Stretchman wanted to prove that his stretching exercises couldn’t have injured Hiroshi and opted to give Ryu a demonstration to prove it. He put Ryu in a Camel Stretch and made him submit. Ryu was sore but he wasn’t injured by the move so Stretchman was declared not guilty.

A draw was held to determine the playoff bracket for tomorrow’s one day Lottery Tag Team Tournament. The first opening round match is Takato Nakano & Takumi Tsukamoto Vs Best Stretchman V3 & Yusuke Kubo. The winners face Yasu Urano & FUMA in the semi-final. The other opening round match is Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT Vs Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Isami Kodaka. The winners fight Ryuichi Sekine & Gouma Ryu in the other semi-final.

1. Yasu Urano defeated Takato Nakano with a Shoulder Tackle (7:24).
2. FUMA defeated Gouma Ryu with a Headlock (0:07).
2a. Rematch: FUMA defeated Gouma Ryu with a Headlock (4:00).
3. BASARA x DOVE All Round Fight: Naoki Tanizaki & “brother” YASSHI defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when YASSHI pinned Nakatsu with the Nice Jamaica (12:05).

6. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryucihi (c) defeated Yusuke Kubo with the Perfect Five (18:49).

In the battle between USA and Heavy Metal, USA won. Trans-Am ★ Ryucihi is still the Union MAX Champion after beating Yusuke Kubo. He survived an Arm Trap Figure Four Leg Lock by nudging his body over to the ropes then cut down Kubo with Short Arm Lariats until the Perfect Five finish. Ryuichi called Kubo the strongest technician in BASARA but he was not strong enough. Isami Kodaka came out and challenged Ryuichi to a title match at Korakuen Hall on 1st October. Ryuichi accepted the challenge and shook Kodaka’s hand. But Ryuichi then said if he beats Kodaka, he will take over BASARA. Kodaka was taken aback by the stipulation but agreed to it. The Korakuen show is his 15th Anniversary and he will fight with all 15 years of his power to protect BASARA and become the champion!

Isami Kodaka Vs Kenshin Chikano was treated as the final match in the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud. Both sides agreed that there was going to be no decisive winner anytime soon so this match would be the end and then everyone could move on to new directions. Kodaka got the win with the Isamuashi Zan. Kodaka and Gunso argued afterwards over whether or not this means BASARA won the feud.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi had to pull out of the show because of a dislocated shoulder. SAGAT took his place in Match #4. Takumi Tsukamoto lost the match for his team and afterwards said he wanted revenge on the Dove Pro team. However BASARA’s feud with Dove Pro is now over after today. So Tsukamoto said he will bring in some old friends to help him fight Dove Pro at the 1st October Korakuen show.

After Match #3, “brother” YASSHI praised Ryota Nakatsu inbetween a bunch of swear words. He described Nakatsu as a “blonde haired bastard” and a wonderful wrestler who stood out at the Dove Pro shows in Osaka and Hiroshima two weeks ago. YASSHI thinks Nakatsu has a promising future.

1. Fuminori Abe defeated Takato Nakano with an Armlock (8:47).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Gouma Ryu defeated Atsushi Maruyama and Yasu Urano when Ryu submitted Maruyama with a Reverse Cross Armbreaker (14:12).
3. Cavalry Vs Best Stretch Yoyogi Uehara Store: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Tsutomu Oosugi & Best Stretchman V3 when Sekine submitted Stretchman with the Let’s Combine (11:24).
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Gunso & SAGAT when Kodaka pinned SAGAT with the Isamuashi Zan (17:26).
5. Trans-Am ★ Family Vs IRON PRIEST: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Tanaka when Kubo pinned Ryuichi with the Death Metal Roll (16:28).

For the first time in BASARA, the unbeatable Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi has been pinned! Yusuke Kubo countered Ryuichi’s Perfect Five into the Death Metal Roll for the surprise three count, giving IRON PRIEST the win over Trans-Am ★ Family. The result gives Kubo a strong argument for getting a Union MAX Title shot. But somebody outside of the Trans-Am ★ Family doesn’t like that idea. Isami Kodaka earlier in the show declared his intentions of winning his belt back and he thinks he should get a shot before Kubo does. And since this is Kodaka’s company, his word is law! FUMA protested and said BASARA was created to give everyone freedom. Kodaka disagreed and said it was so he could be a dictator. FUMA then said Kubo has beaten Ryuichi while Kodaka hasn’t. Kodaka couldn’t argue against that and admitted he was being unfair. Kubo pinning Ryuichi is a big deal so that should be rewarded. Kodaka backed off so Kubo could declare himself the No. 1 Contender. Ryuichi’s response to Kubo was “OK. Understand. You are next!”

Kodaka is excited by the matches BASARA and Dove Pro are having together. He wants more crazy matches like the one they had today and is looking forward to the next bouts happening next month in Osaka and Hiroshima. However, that’s not all that Kodaka wants. He also declared his intentions to win back the Union MAX Title!

Yasu Urano was taken to court accused by Atsushi Maruyama of damaging DDT’s finances when he became a freelancer. He was questioned by Maruyama about why he left DDT. Urano gave the answer that he wants compete with various wrestlers around the scene. Maruyama didn’t believe him and is convinced Urano has a desire to destroy DDT. Ryuichi Sekine was brought in as a witness. He said he was thinking about quitting wrestling until Urano came to BASARA to fight him. Hagane was next and he said the same. As the questioning continued, Gouma Ryu was insulted when Maruyama said he is not a wrestler but a lawyer so he shouldn’t be standing inside the ring. Ryu snapped and put Matsuyama in a Cross Armbreaker, making him submit and ending the trial. Urano was declared innocent.

7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final – Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) defeated FUMA with the Perfect Plex (17:19).
*V2 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.

The final night of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament began with a suspenseful tiebreaker. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and FUMA finished in a dead heat in their block. Their group match ended in a Double KO so neither could put in a rightful claim for who deserved the spot in the final more. So they had to fight each other again in a tiebreaker match. This time FUMA came out on top, wearing out Hiroshi with Buzzsaw Kicks and then finally finishing him off with the Jawbreaker kick.

The stakes were raised in the final when Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi agreed to put the Union MAX Title on the line against FUMA. After all, there was no clear challenger on the horizon for the champ after he swept through the competition in the group stage. The ring was surrounded by IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family. All of them were cheering for their wrestler to win. The champion was in trouble when FUMA countered the Perfect Five into the Metal Fire From Hell. The end appeared to be coming when FUMA went for the Jawbreaker but Ryuichi made him freeze by pointing at him and shouting “YOU!” FUMA snapped out and gave Ryuichi a High Kick then a Superplex. FUMA was on fire until Ryuichi stopped him in his tracks with a Lariat. Now Ryuichi was shaking the ropes in anticipation and he hit another Lariat for a nearfall. The end finally came when Ryuichi hit the Perfect Five and it was enough to pin FUMA for the three count.

Ryuichi happily accepted his 500,000 yen cash prize. He told FUMA he dislikes the Heavy Metal hand sign but he also doesn’t mind heavy metal music in general so they should wrestle again some time. He tried to walk towards FUMA for a handshake but stopped when SAGAT accidentally stepped on the microphone cable. Ryuichi and Hiroshi attacked SAGAT as punishment then went back to shake FUMA’s hand. The Trans-Am ★ Family declared “War is over. Love and peace.” However, Yusuke Kubo disagreed. He told the Family in English that the war is not over and IRON PRIEST won’t be shaking hands with them. IRON PRIEST will never give up! He challenged them to a match on 20th July. They agreed but first, Ryuichi is taking his prize money to Las Vegas.

Yasu Urano wanted to experience a Hardcore Match and by God he got what he wanted. Isami Kodaka brought out a ladder and set it up in the ring. Then when the match began everyone immediately brought in chairs and swung away at each other. Kodaka later busted him open with a chairshot. Takumi Tsukamoto fended off Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine with his giant hammer. Kodaka then hit the Chair Assisted Diving Double Knee Drop on Tsukamoto. Urano broke the pin and DDT’d Kodaka onto the chair. Sekine wiped out Tsukamoto with a Topé Suicida while Kodaka hit Urano with a Shining Wizard. Kodaka climbed the ladder but Urano followed. The two exchanged strikes until Kodaka knocked Urano off the ladder. He then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop from the ladder to Urano. After that there was no way Urano could kick out. When the match was over Kodaka asked Urano if he enjoyed his first Hardcore Match. Urano said he did not take this match lightly and he wanted to do as well as SAGAT would. Urano then asked if he could continue to wrestle in BASARA, but no more Hardcore Matches. Kodaka brought up the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. There have been two tournaments previously and they were won by Urano and Kodaka. So let’s do it again! Both of them announced they will enter the next Budokai tournament which will take place in Korakuen Hall instead of Shinjuku on 28th December. Naoki Tanizaki also threw his name into the hat when he found out about it.

Ryota Nakatsu’s plan to target Magnitude Kishiwada’s left arm didn’t work. His opponent was able to shrug off the damage and cut him off with a Lariat late in the match. He only got a nearfall with the Diving Body Press. When that didn’t work, Kishiwada put Nakatsu into a Single Leg Crab Hold and dragged him into the middle of the ring for the submission victory.

Takato Nakano stepped up to Naoki Tanizaki, throwing Chops when Tanizaki mocked him for being the “Youngster of BASARA”. Nakano kicked out of the Reverse Implant but fell to the normal version of the move. Nakano slapped the mat in disappointment after the match.

Yuko Miyamoto will be on the 1st October Korakuen Hall show. The event will celebrate Isami Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary in wrestling.

-. FUMA (7)
3. Isami Kodaka (6)
-. Ryota Nakatsu (6)
5. SAGAT (4)
-. Gouma Ryu (0)

Well this is a predicament. The two front runners for Block B both lost their matches today and finished tied in 1st place. FUMA lost to Isami Kodaka when Kodaka brought out his new secret move, the Tori Kabuto to win. Then Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi blew his chance to win the block when he submitted to Ryota Nakatsu. FUMA and Hiroshi will face off in a tiebreaker match on 5th July, the same night as the final.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi cleared the last hurdle Block A to win the group and head into the final undefeated. Ryuichi Sekine was also unbeaten up until this point but couldn’t kick out to the Perfect Five. Hiroshi congratulated him afterwards and apologised for losing to “Young Boy Nakatsu”. Ryuichi said he will be waiting for either Hiroshi or FUMA in the final.

Gouma Ryu tried to distract SAGAT with a quiz while they wrestled but SAGAT didn’t care enough to be effected. SAGAT chased Ryu out of the ring until he somehow got himself wedged between the ring post and the pillar next to it. Takumi Tsukamoto and a few fans grabbed SAGAT and pulled him free. However, Ryu was still holding on to SAGAT from the other side and was wedged into the gap himself! SAGAT left him stuck there so he could win by countout.
