2. FUMA & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Tomato & SAGAT when FUMA pinned SAGAT with the Heavy Metal Anthem (10:51).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Daichi Kazato with a High Angle Backslide (10:17).

5. Find The Next Generation Trans-Am! Hiroshi Birth! Rumble: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (SAGAT) defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Gouma Ryu) with the Perfect Plex (10:42).
Order Of Elimination: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Yasu Urano), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Ryuichi Sekine), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Daichi Kazato), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Takato Nakano), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Ryota Nakatsu), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (FUMA), Hiroshi Fukuda (Takumi Tsukamoto), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Goro Jr.), Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Isami Kodaka) and Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (Gouma Ryu).

BASARA put together “HIROSHI AID” to help out Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi while he is still recovering from his dislocated shoulder. Since this was the first un-numbered BASARA show, nobody knew what to expect. The main event was a Royal Rumble to determine the next Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi will be while the current one is out of action. Most of the other wrestlers on the show took part resembling one of the many different costumes Hiroshi has worn in his career and mimicking his spots. Takumi Tsukamoto even came out as the rookie era Hiroshi Fukuda to spice things up a bit. FUMA did his own twist of the gimmick and rocked out to “LA Metal”. One notable absence was Yusuke Kubo. Instead, his place was taken by his old Goro Jr. gimmick and he eliminated most of the field with Spinning Back Punches. SAGAT was the last Hiroshi standing but the real Hiroshi did not want to pass the gimmick over to him. SAGAT knows in his heart he isn’t Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, he is SAGAT. There is only one real Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and this Rumble was only done for his entertainment! Isami Kodaka saw the funny side and he wished Hiroshi well until he returns to BASARA. Hiroshi said this is his goodbye until 3rd November. That isn’t the date of his return match, he’ll just be at the next show.

In the semi-main event, Isami Kodaka put a stop to Ryuichi Sekine’s wave of momentum heading into their Union MAX Title match. Kodaka countered the Let’s Combine into a Frankensteiner to get the three count. Kodaka yelled at Sekine after the match to go stand at the blue corner instead of the neutral corner because he is the challenger. He then said he knows Sekine inside out and that means Sekine can’t beat him. Sekine had to tell himself that Kodaka is wrong. He has to hit, kick and do whatever he can to move forward and win the title because nothing is stupid when he puts his mind to it.

1. Toru Sugiura defeated Takato Nakano with a Missile Kick (7:29).
2. Trans-Am ★ Shinya defeated Daichi Kazato with the Khusi Drive (10:45).
3. Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Konoka = Pale One when Kubo pinned Nakatsu with the Death Metal Roll (14:22).
4. Yasu Urano defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with a Cradle (11:21).
5. Doki! 3 Way Hardcore Can Match: Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takumi Tsukamoto and FUMA when Sekine submitted Tsukamoto with the Let’s Combine (13:13).
6. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka defeated SAGAT with the Isamuashi Zan (15:55).

SAGAT requested that his main event with Isami Kodaka could be held as a Hardcore Match. Kodaka accepted and that caught SAGAT off guard. The two fought with chairs and steel cans until Kodaka came out on top. Afterwards Kodaka said SAGAT’s growth has been wonderful to see and he encouraged SAGAT to stand up through the pain by himself. SAGAT did so. Kodaka said that he himself is incompatible with the Trans-Am ★ Family but they clearly have love for SAGAT. He would like to help them put together the Hiroshi Aid show for Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

Ryuichi Sekine took one step closer to the top of the BASARA mountain by winning the 3 Way Match. He approached Kodaka at the end of the show demanding the next shot at the Union MAX Title. In less than one month he made FUMA submit in Korakuen Hall, made Yasu Urano submit in Shin-Kiba 1st RING and today made Takumi Tsukamoto submit in Nagoya. All that is left for him is the BASARA leader himself. Sekine’s challenge wasn’t clearly understood by Kodaka but what Sekine meant to say was he doesn’t need three or four chances to win the title. He wants on decisive match against Kodaka so both are guaranteed to be at their best. He wants this to be the Match Of The Year on the indies.

Tatsuhiko Yoshino wanted to act tough by daring Yasu Urano to give him Soccer Kicks. He would then shrug them off and tell him they don’t hurt. This backfired when Urano kept kicking and slamming Yoshino until he admitted to feeling pain. Lots and lots of pain. Yoshino later had the back of his tights pulled down but he either didn’t notice or didn’t care about pulling them back up.

Ryota Nakatsu painted himself to resemble Konoka = Pale One when they teamed together. He also wanted to be called Nakatsu = Pale One.

Trans-Am ★ Shinya traveled from Mexico to wrestle on this show and he had the sunburned skin to prove it. He also cut off Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s “USA!” chants and replaced them with “Lucha!” chants instead.

BASARA “VAJRA 49 ~FEAST~”, 19/10/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
202 Fans

1. Yusuke Kubo defeated Takato Nakano with a Gedo Clutch (9:38).
2. A Professional Wrestling Agency Which Can Be A Matrix: Hagane defeated Gouma Ryu and Tatsuhiko Yoshino when Hagane submitted Ryu with a Walls Of Jericho (7:37).
3. Senga’s Strategy To Recapture Oosugi!: Hercules Senga & Atsushi Maruyama defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi when Senga pinned Stretchman with a Rope Assisted School Boy (9:01).
4. Doki! Hardcore Can 6-Man Tag Match: Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Masamune defeated Takumi Tsukamoto, SAGAT & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Urano with the Let’s Combine (17:25).
5. Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi defeated FUMA & Fuminori Abe when Kodaka pinned Abe with the Isamuashi Zan (17:59).

It looked like Isami Kodaka & Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi would work well together as a team but tension grew between them thanks to unwanted blind tags. Kodaka won the main event for the team anyway. Kodaka asked Ryuichi for a handshake after the match but Ryuichi gave him the Perfect Five instead. Ryuichi told Kodaka “You’re not sexy! You’re not American! My girlfriend is Ariana Grande!” and then he left the ring. Kodaka’s day wasn’t over yet because FUMA, Ryuichi Sekine and Takumi Tsukamoto all came out demanding a Union MAX Title match against him. Kodaka told them he will defend the title on 26th November but against who will be up for them to decide. Kodaka doesn’t care how they figure it out as long as they stop making so much noise with their arguing. When they all left, Kodaka said he was now standing alone under the heavens, a familiar situation for him. Well, alone except for the ring announcer Rikiya Shindo also being there. Shindo gave him a beer and Kodaka closed out the show holding a toast for himself.

It took him a few attempts but Ryuichi Sekine was able to submit Yasu Urano to the Let’s Combine. Most of his attempts were stopped by Takumi Tsukamoto and SAGAT throwing the steel cans at him including a Con-Chair-To style attack with an extra can placed over Sekine’s head.

Hercules Senga used the ropes for leverage to pin Best Stretchman V3. Despite being cheated, Stretchman agreed to give Tsutomu Oosugi back to Senga but only when Senga can beat him without cheating. Stretchman then recommended the audience to stay warm by doing stretching exercises because Japan is entering its coldest winter in 60 years.

Trans-Am ★Hiroshi announced the date for Hiroshi Aid, a special benefit show to help him while he is recovering from his shoulder injuries. The event takes place at Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR on 29th November. Hiroshi no longer needs to wear a shoulder brace but he has not been medically cleared to wrestle yet.

*Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi fails in V4. Isami Kodaka becomes the 9th Union MAX Champion!

15 years isn’t slowing down Isami Kodaka one bit. He regained the Union MAX Championship on his very own 15th Anniversary show! Kodaka’s cry from the main event’s video package was “Enjoy Wrestling!” while the defending champion Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted back with “Freedom!” The video also featured comments from Ryuichi Kawakami who has been constantly compared to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for some reason. In a reverse of roles, it was Ryuichi who offered a handshake at the start only for Kodaka to kick his hand away. Kodaka later asked for a handshake but Ryuichi turned him down and shouted “Wooooo!” Kodaka kicked out of the Perfect Plex and fought his way out of the Perfect Five. An Exploder Suplex took Ryuichi out of his game and a bunch of Buzzsaw Kicks and Isamuashi Zan kicks won the match for Kodaka. The new champion said Ryuichi fought like a cyborg. He then asked him to send his thanks to Kawakami. Kodaka thinks Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi and Ryuichi Kawakami should combine to form the Perfect Soldier. Ryuichi’s response in broken English was “Thank you so much!” Kodaka then talked about his own career. It can go another 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years. Kodaka wants to be like The Great Kojika who is still wrestling at 75 years old. However, Kodaka is also dedicated to BASARA. If BASARA ever goes away then that means retirement for Kodaka! He will never let that happen.

HUB got into the IRON PRIEST spirit by rocking out on air guitar with FUMA and Yusuke Kubo for their entrance. FUMA even used HUB’s stinger as a guitar while they were beating on Yasu Urano. Kubo & HUB wiped out Urano & Yuji Hino with dives but the party ended when Ryuichi Sekine countered FUMA’s Reverse Power Slam and rolled it into the Let’s Combine submission. When FUMA tapped out, Urano rushed over to hug Sekine. In the backstage interview, Sekine pointed out that he never touched HUB at all during the match because he hates snakes. He also heard all of his large sized shirts and higher sold out at the merch table. None of the smaller shirts sold which annoyed him because it meant no women were buying them, only men.

In the battle of current gen yankee versus new gen yankee, Yuko Miyamoto defeated Ryota Nakatsu. Miyamoto was put in danger many times by Nakatsu’s submissions, most notably when the Fire Thunder was countered into a Cross Armbreaker. Miyamoto eventually hit the move but Nakatsu fought through the pain to get back up to his feet. However, Nakatsu was knocked down again with a Lariat and put away with the Moonsault. Miyamoto was surprised to discover that BASARA had a wrestler so focused to target his right arm like Nakatsu did. He thinks it is possible for Nakatsu to grow into a great wrestler.

If it was made out of steel, it was allowed to be used in the Hardcore 6-Man Tag Match. Takumi Tsukamoto gathered around some of his friends from Big Japan to battle the Dove Pro team and their heavy bass music that played throughout the match. A steel box was smashed over everyone’s heads a lot. Gunso grabbed a shard of metal and dug it into Tsukamoto’s forehead to make him bleed. Kabuki Kid then created a pile of chairs for Tsukamoto to be slammed onto. However Tsukamoto got some revenge on Kid with a Fisherman Buster. Jaki Numazawa fended off the Dove wrestlers by throwing chairs at them. Masashi Takeda also used the steel box to keep the Dove wrestlers away while Tsukamoto and Gunso fought to the end inside the ring. Tsukamoto Suplexed Gunso from a ladder onto a pile of metal objects below. He then hit the Zudon for the three count, making B FAULTLESS JUNKY’S the winners. Even though a winner was declared, both sides hinted that the conflict between them isn’t over yet. Tsukamoto wasn’t satisfied with the victory.

SAGAT had the impossible task of facing Daisuke Sekimoto one on one. Even with the hard work and crowd behind him, SAGAT fell to the Deadlift German Suplex. Sekimoto gently bowed to SAGAT after the match and left the ring. SAGAT was offered help by Takato Nakano to be taken out of the ring but SAGAT refused and left under his own power. SAGAT said it was impossible for him to beat Sekimoto this year. It will be impossible for him to beat Sekimoto next year. But some year, SAGAT will beat him! Doesn’t matter if it is so long in the future that Sekimoto will be a grandfather when it happens. It will happen!

The recent sale of DDT and all of its franchises has left Gouma Ryu feeling worried. The entire company is a legitimate business now and there is so much that has to change as a result. Ryu can no longer tolerate sneak attacks because it is illegal. He also wants wrestlers to be careful with their kicks because they can cause injuries. Mineo Fujita cut him off with a sneak attack Dropkick to start their tag match. Ryu tried to strike Fujita with his lawbook but Fujita stopped him with a Shining Wizard. Fujita picked up the lawbook but was told by the referee to get rid of it. Fujita dropped the book onto Ryu’s stomach by accident then pinned him with the Swanton Bomb.

Fuminori Abe channeled the abilities of Munenori Sawa to trap Takato Nakano in an Octopus Hold the same way Sawa did. Masamune kept Shiori Asahi at bay to stop the move from being broken.

1. Kyu Mogami defeated Takato Nakano with the X Evacuation (9:02).
2. Temple Of Doubt! The Curse Of Abe-chan to Best Stretchman V3…!: Fuminori Abe defeated Best Stretchman V3 with the Nirvana (6:39).
3. Kotaro Yoshino & Dinosaur Takuma defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & TEPPEI when Takuma pinned TEPPEI with the Gao Bababa (9:43).
4. IRON PRIEST Vs Trans-Am ★ Family: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Trans-Am ★ Tomato, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT when Kubo pinned SAGAT with the Death Metal Roll (14:19).
5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Important Edition~: Isami Kodaka defeated Tatsuhiko Yoshino with the Isamuashi Zan (12:33).
6. Yuji Hino & Yasu Urano defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Hino pinned Sekine with the Fucking Bomb (20:23).

Yuji Hino is an intimidating figure and Ryuichi Sekine was hesitant to interact with him before, during and even after the main event. Sekine needed some time to recover after Hino pinned him with the Fucking Bomb. When he finally got the courage to speak, Sekine thanked Hino for the times he gave him advice and for being supportive. Hino was surprised by Sekine’s gesture, shook his hand and helped pick him back up to his feet.

There was a reason why Isami Kodaka Vs Tatsuhiko Yoshino was advertised as an “Important Edition” of Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary series. Kodaka said BASARA has many friends but Yoshino is an important one. Yoshino called Kodaka the best big brother he could ever wish for. When the time comes for Kodaka to retire, he will call Yoshino to play an important role for him. But that’s not happening anytime soon. Kodaka’s turning 36 this year and he aims to wrestle until he turns 75, the same age that The Great Kojika is now. Kodaka announced that his next match for his anniversary series will be on 19th September and will involve GENTARO and Ryuji Ito.

The Trans-Am ★ Family unveiled their newest member Trans-Am ★ Tomato for their match against IRON PRIEST. He and his teammates Trans-Am ★ Shinya & SAGAT all did the Tomato Dance for their entrance together. Tomato riled up IRON PRIEST by claiming that “America Is Hip Hop!” FUMA fought him off by describing his own moves as pesticide.

Heijitsu Mask was prevented from appearing at the show today because he is only allowed to wrestle on weekdays. When he arrived at the airport this morning he was stopped by security. TEPPEI took his place in Match #3.

Fuminori Abe wrestled in full monk garb, even wearing a bald cap because he didn’t want to shave his head. He offered advice to Best Stretchman V3 and said he is becoming overwhelmed by his responsibilities. He then tried to offer pamphlets to Stretchman while they wrestled. Abe won the match when he stuck a mysterious piece of paper on Stretchman’s face, rendering the superhero unconscious. When Stretchman woke up he felt refreshed and invigorated. He has been reborn as New Best Stretchman!

1. SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano with the Trans-Am ★ Recliner (8:12).
2. Single Match With Beef Tongue As Ingredients: Atsushi Maruyama defeated Gouma Ryu by TKO (5:21).
3. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano defeated Ryota Nakatsu & Best Stretchman V3 when Tsumakoto pinned Stretchman with the Zudon (14:22).
4. Sendai Fest: FUMA & Ricky Fuji defeated Yusuke Kubo & Hagane when FUMA pinned Kubo with the Heavy Metal Anthem (14:24).
5. Isami Kodaka 15th Anniversary Memorial Match ~Miyagino Ward~: Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita & Masamune ended in a Time Limit (30:00).

Isami Kodaka said that the main event felt like it lasted a blink of an eye. He talked about travelling to Puerto Rico for K-DOJO fifteen years ago. When he returned he found out that Minoru Fujita was now his teacher. He’s been learning from him ever since. Ryuichi Sekine wanted to say a few words but Fujita cut him off and told Kodaka to keep his indy wrestler silent. Sekine snapped back and told Fujita he’s an indy wrestler too. Fujita hugged everyone but didn’t look happy doing so.

FUMA got Ricky Fuji as his surprise tag team partner for the IRON PRIEST tag match. FUMA called the match perfect. He also announced Fuji will be a part of FUMA FEST in December.

Gouma Ryu and Atsushi Maruyama fought in a match involving a beef tongue and a 5 point system. Knock downs, rope breaks and beef tongue usage were scored against the wrestlers and the first to reach 5 points would lose. Maruyama won by the skin of his teeth with the beef tongue but wasn’t satisfied by the result. He attacked Gouma again but Gouma trapped him in a Cross Armbreaker until Maruyama tapped out.

The next leg of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud was highlighted with another 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match this time with Hardcore rules. The Dove Pro team all entered wearing red baseball jerseys yelling “We are DOVE PRO!”. Isami Kodaka made his entrance wearing a costume made up of combined props from other BASARA wrestlers. He was carrying Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s American flag and Gouma Ryu’s law book, wore SAGAT’s feathered headpiece, Takato Nakano’s leggings, Best Stretchman V3 muffler and Yusuke Kubo’s armbands. Dove Pro gained the advantage by eliminated Ryota Nakatsu and Ryuichi Sekine early while only losing “brother” YASSHI on their side. FUMA and Gunso fought on top of a ladder and were both knocked out of the ring when Kodaka was thrown into them. Kodaka was left on his own but he caught Kabuki Kid with a School Boy to bring the match down to himself and Naoki Tanizaki as the final two. They exchanged Elbow Smashes on the apron until Kodaka gave Tanizaki a Vertical Drop Brainbuster onto the apron. Tanizaki then fell off the apron to get eliminated.

BASARA won the match but the fighting continued between the two teams at ringside. Kodaka calmed everyone down and told them to save it for tomorrow’s show. He then asked if Gunso was doing anything on 1st October. That is the date of Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary show in Korakuen Hall. Kodaka would like Gunso and some of the Dove Pro wrestlers to come over to the show. Gunso described the rivalry between BASARA and Dove Pro as an “Endless, Endless Summer”. He said Kodaka’s match with Kenshin Chikano will be the de facto final match of the feud. Chikano promised to make tomorrow an unforgettable day.

Yasu Urano used the referee as a shield to stop SAGAT from hitting a top rope attack. Urano then threw the ref into SAGAT, kicked SAGAT below the belt when the ref was disoriented and pinned SAGAT with an Inside Cradle.

Gouma Ryu said he was intimidated by the skills of his opponents but gained courage when he found out he was teaming with Yusuke Kubo, the man who will be challenging for the Union MAX Title tomorrow. Ryu yelled that he would destroy Kenshin Chikano & Rey Paloma but they easily beat him up.
