The 2017 Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament began with all Block A matches today. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi sent a message to the rest of the field with a win over Takumi Tsukamoto in the main event. Ryuichi’s dream opponent for the final is Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. They both think it will be the perfect match. Ryuichi Sekine took Best Stretchman V3 past his breaking point, bending him so far with the Let’s Combine that Stretchman had to submit. The rookie Takato Nakano tried what he could against Yusuke Kubo but a Backbreaker into the Cross Facelock made him tap out.

Naoki Tanizaki found an answer to Isami Kodaka’s European Clutch to grab the victory. The European Clutch was countered when Tanizaki rolled on top of Kodaka and pressed down with all his weight to get the three count. Tanizaki said he has just begun and he hopes to see even more interactions between BASARA and Dove Pro Wrestling in the future.

*V1 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.

The 2nd half of today’s Korakuen Hall doubleshot was held by BASARA for their second ever visit to the building. The Trans-Am ★ Family were dominant with wins in both of their big matches. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi successfully defended the Union MAX Title against Ryota Nakatsu in the main event. Ryuichi yelled “C’mon Young Boy!” at Nakatsu as they wrestled but Nakatsu reversed the roles when he hulked up against the champion’s offence late in the match. Sadly for Nakatsu he was knocked loopy with the Luxurious Lariat and Ryuichi put him away with the Perfect Five. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi congratulated Ryuichi after the match and they both spoke in English about the upcoming Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament.

A table, ladder and a pile of chairs were placed in the ring and dub music played over the sound system for the Hardcore Tag Match. After several failed attempts SAGAT finally earned a win over Gunso although he had to pin Shoichi Uchida to do it. Takumi Tsukamoto hit Uchida with the O’Cannon Bomb after Uchida missed a Splash from the top of the ladder. Tsukamoto then held Gunso back while SAGAT pinned Uchida with the Gore Grind.

Gunso wasn’t shaken by his team’s loss. He describes hardcore wrestling like it was a sushi shop and Dove Pro Wrestling’s “sushi” is the best! He wants more BASARA Vs Dove Pro Wrestling matches but wants to hear what BASARA’s “sushi store manager” Isami Kodaka has to say. Kodaka played along with Gunso’s metaphors and called BASARA a family restaurant. Gunso challenged Kodaka to send BASARA wrestlers over to Dove Pro. Kodaka couldn’t agree to it but made a deal with Gunso. BASARA will be holding two shows at Shin-Kiba 1st RING in August, one on the 23rd and one on the 24th. They are offering to book Dove Pro wrestlers to take part in the shows. Gunso accepted and said he will bring the entire roster. Kodaka told him he can’t do that. Gunso must choose who to bring because BASARA can’t afford to pay the travelling expenses for an entire outside roster. Kodaka then warned that he is preparing his best dish for the Dove Pro wrestlers the show. He is preparing SAGAT!

Kodaka went into his match with Yuji Okabayashi knowing that it would be almost impossible to beat him. That turned out to be right but hey at least he tried. Kodaka had a few tricks up his sleeve like trying to goad Okabayashi into throwing Chops that were easy to dodge. He also targeted his leg and was able to Suplex him onto the floor while they were outside the ring. Tatsuhiko Yoshino even begged for Okabayashi to get counted out so it wouldn’t ruin Kodaka’s special day in Korakuen. Okabayashi did not oblige and when he got his hands on Kodaka he didn’t waste his opportunities. Kodaka had some chances here and there like moving away from the Golem Splash and getting a two count with La Magistral Cradle. But Okabayashi caught him with a Power Bomb and lifted him back up into the Argentine Backbreaker for the submission victory. Okabayashi said that power is everything. It doesn’t matter what skill and tricks Kodaka has, Okabayashi will always bounce back with power!

Dick Togo out-wrestled Yusuke Kubo in a match between teacher and student. Togo was one step ahead most of the time and countered Kubo’s Goro Suplex into the Pedigree. Kubo blocked the move but Togo manoeuvred him into a Gedo Clutch for the match winning pinfall. Kubo bowed to Togo after the match. In a backstage interview, Kubo said he was 17 years old when he first met Togo. He is 30 now. He went into this match thinking it was the beginning of the end for him but Togo proved that there is a lot left for him to do.

A true patriotic battle took place as the Trans-Am ★ Family fought Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe. A team could only win when one of their wrestlers used their country’s flag to pin an opponent for the three count. Trans-Am ★ Tanaka was seen for the first time yet wasn’t told about the rules so he went straight for the Minoru Special on Abe. The fans rallied more behind the Trans-Am ★ Family and gave “USA!” chants although they were followed by some “Nippon!” chants afterwards. The family got rid of Masamune & Abe so were able to focus their efforts on Sekine. He couldn’t withstand the numbers game and Hiroshi gave him with a Leg Drop with the Stars And Stripes on top of him to win the match.

The Gingin Boys made quite an entrance, hugging fans of all gender and getting them to place money in their tights and mouths. They scored a big win over IRON PRIEST by isolating FUMA from Hagane. At first FUMA had things in control and hit his big moves on YO-HEY. But a successful dodge led FUMA into a High Kick from Kenshin Chikano. YO-HEY then upped the pressure on FUMA until he pinned him with the Bamboo Dragon Fly, a multiple spinning splash from the top rope.

Court was in session as Best Stretchman V3 was put on trial by Tatsuhiko Yoshino. The two had to be held apart by Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama when they were all in the ring. Stretchman was accused of defamation when he called Yoshino a monster at the last BASARA show in Shin-Kiba. Ryu defended Stretchman by claiming his words were never meant to be taken under offence. He explained that Yoshino was an orthodox wrestler in Guts World but developed into a monster when he moved up to Big Japan. Yoshino disagreed and felt it was still meant to be an insult. Things took a turn when Maruyama pointed out that Ryu’s mother was in the audience. Ryu then took out one of his handwritten notes and read it to everyone. He said that he studied hard to become a lawyer so it would please his mother. But the work he did was so hard that he became a pro wrestler to bring him some relief. He hid this from his mother for so long that it became unbearable and he finally wanted her to learn the truth! Everyone was touched by this except for Yoshino. He attacked Ryu and told Maruyama to join in. Stretchman came to the rescue and fought them off. Ryu shook his hand as thanks but Stretchman then gave him the Best Stretch Bomb for the three count. Stretchman was declared Not Guilty by the judge.

Kodaka welcomed BASARA’s newest wrestler Takato Nakano by being his opponent for his debut match. Nakano wore a purple “Buddha-style” costume and was put through his paces by the veteran Kodaka. He was able to catch Kodaka with a Christo and a Wheelbarrow Facecrusher but otherwise it was all Kodaka in this match. Nakano tapped out to the Half Crab, as is tradition for debut matches in Japan. Kodaka encouraged Nakano to get back to his feet on his own after the match.


Yasu Urano Becomes A Freelancer, Golden Week Schedule, Ganpuro Nonsense

April 28, 2017

Yasu Urano announced yesterday that he will no longer be affiliated with DDT and will be going freelance at the end of May. Urano has been wrestling for 17 years and has been with DDT for the last ten. He wants to expand his horizons with the remaining time he has left as a wrestler. He has no concrete plan for the future but there are many wrestlers out there that he has never fought before. Sanshiro Takagi encouraged him to consider wrestling abroad. He also suggested Urano to set up his own group and call it either Socrates or Wrestle Socrates because Urano is a wrestling philosopher. Urano had already gone over his decision with the rest of Smile Squash before going public. HARASHIMA didn’t believe him the first time he was told. The second time Urano told him he assured that he wasn’t quitting pro wrestling. As for Soma Takao, Urano didn’t know what to tell him so he just sent him a LINE message saying “Sorry”. He will still be a part of Smile Squash until he goes freelance but what will happen to that relationship afterwards is anyone’s guess. Urano still intends to make appearances for DDT here and there. He confirmed that he will a part of “RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2017” on 20th August.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

6. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Yusuke Kubo Vs Dick Togo
7. BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Yuji Okabayashi
8. Union MAX Title – BASARA Three Major Special Single Match: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is boasting of his abilities with his clear, easy to understand English spoken in an obviously American accent. He call himself the best stripper and best wrestler in the world with a perfect body that Ryota Nakatsu cannot beat. Nakatsu doesn’t believe a word that comes out of Ryuichi’s mouth. He is convinced it is really Ryuichi Kawamura playing a character. Regardless it is Nakatsu’s desire to win the Union MAX Title that drives him. He watched the belt be defended in Union Pro but never progressed far enough to challenge for the title before Union closed down.

Isami Kodaka has two matches to prepare for on the show. He will be the first opponent for the debuting rookie Takato Nakano. Then later in the show he faces the Big Japan golem Yuji Okabayashi in a first time singles match. When thinking up strategies for the match Kodaka came to the conclusion that it will be impossible to beat Okabayashi in a straightforward wrestling match. With that said he is still practicing a lot of different ideas to try and win.

The Japan Vs America rivalry continues further down the card. Ryuichi Sekine doesn’t care if the political relationship between the two countries is currently nice and friendly. He thinks his 6-Man Tag match against the Trans-Am ★ Family will be the biggest fight of the century. He wants to this match to show all the great things about the Japanese. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi responded that he loves Japan. He loves the beautiful scenery, the delicious food, the pretty women in kimonos and Tokyo Disneyland. The only thing he does not like about Japan are three particular people: Masamune, Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe! Japan can improve as a country if those three people learn to speak English. So Hiroshi asked for the match to be a True Patriotic Pinfall match. The match can only be won by pinfall and the wrestlers have to cover their opponent with their country’s flag on top of them. Sekine is against the stipulation because his finisher is a submission move. The rule may also backfire on the Trans-Am ★ Family if the rumour that Trans-Am ★ Tanaka is really submission specialist Minoru Tanaka turns out to be true.

Ken Ohka has confirmed that if he loses the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title to Maryama then there will not be a title rematch on that date.

During the press conference to promote Ganpuro’s upcoming events, Minoru Fujita briefly dropped by to give Ohka a gift he bought in Shinjuku.

Yumehito Imanari is training for the Double Sweet Death Match by eating a very sweet cinnamon roll he purchased last week. The downside to this is the roll is already a bit mouldy.

BASARA “VAJRA 33 ~RICH IN SPRING AND FALL~” Results

April 19, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 33 ~RICH IN SPRING AND FALL~”, 19/04/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
184 Fans

1. Episode 3 – “Best Stretchman V3 Angry Special Training”: Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino & Fuminori Abe when Stretchman pinned Abe with the Best Stretch Bomb (8:42).
2. Great Reversal Pro Wrestling Preliminary Preparation For Trial: Gouma Ryu defeated Atsushi Maruyama with an Inverted Reverse Splash (5:44).
3. IRON PRIEST Vs B FAULTLESS JUNKY’s: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, Jaki Numazawa & Masashi Takeda when Kubo pinned Tsukamoto with the Death Metal Roll (15:04).
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.


BASARA “VAJRA 32 ~SPRING BAMBOO AFTER RAIN~” Results

April 6, 2017

BASARA “VAJRA 32 ~SPRING BAMBOO AFTER RAIN~”, 06/04/2017
Yokohama Nigiwai-za Noge Share
101 Fans – No Vacancy

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).
4. Episode 2 – Death Penalty Of Best Stretchman V3: Isami Kodaka defeated Best Stretchman V3 with the European Clutch (8:42).
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.

5. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA (c) with the Perfect Five (13:53).
*FUMA fails in V2. Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi becomes the 8th Union MAX Champion!
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.

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.
