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.

BASARA “VAJRA 50 ~KUSANAGI SWORD~” Results

BASARA “VAJRA 50 ~KUSANAGI SWORD~”, 22/10/2017
Nagoya City Mid-Sports Center
114 Fans

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.

*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.

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.

5. Isami Kodaka defeated “brother” YASSHI with the European Clutch (?:??).

BASARA was invited over to Dove Pro’s house for a weekend series of inter-promotional matches. Day 1 was held in Osaka and BASARA almost dominated the challenge by winning 3 of the 4 inter-promotional matches. Isami Kodaka beat “brother” YASSHI but he was saved from defeat when the referee was knocked down during the match, missing a vital pinfall by YASSHI. Kodaka countered YASSHI’s Locomotion Suplex into the European Clutch to steal the win.

Cavalry were the only losers on team BASARA. They failed to win the DOVE Tag Team Titles from The Gingin BOYS and they blamed the BOYS’ female fans over it.

Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Rey Paloma ignored Shoichi Uchida for most of the 3 Way Match. They were more focused on wrestling each other until Hiroshi convinced Paloma to sing with him. Hiroshi then rolled Paloma into a pin as they were singing to get the three count.

The 3 Way Tag match was fought under Hardcore Rules and it got violent. SAGAT was unstoppable with the chairs while Takumi Tsukamoto used a ladder to great effect. Their opponents were no match for them and SAGAT got the pin on Kabuki Kid to win. Kid’s partner Gunso had a stare down with SAGAT after the match.

The next day’s show took place in Dove Pro’s home location in Hiroshima. It was highlighted by a crazy 4 Vs 4 Elimination brawl between Dove Pro and BASARA. Kodaka was busted open early after chairshots and a collision with the ring post. He later scored the first elimination over Naoki Tanizaki. Kabuki Kid got rid of Tsukamoto but was then eliminated by Ryuichi Sekine. YASSHI evened the sides by escaping Sekine’s Let’s Combine and pinning him with La Magistral. YASSHI and Kodaka eliminated each other when a tackled took both of them over the top rope and out of the ring. This left SAGAT and Gunso as the last members of each team. Gunso came out on top with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and the Diving Guillotine Drop.

Chikano pinned Nakatsu with the Buzzsaw Kick for the second show in a row.

Hiroshi and Paloma continued to sing at each other duiring their second match. Hiroshi trapped him in a Cross Armbreaker to win but continued to attack him after the match. Paloma fought him off and hit the Paloma Bomber to make Hiroshi flee out of the ring.

Next up, Dove Pro will be back in BASARA for another inter-promotional challenge series on 23rd & 24th August.

6. Trans-Am ★ Family Vs IRON PRIEST: FUMA, HUB & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Abe when Kubo pinned Abe with the Death Metal Roll (14:58).

Yusuke Kubo continues to lead IRON PRIEST to victory over the Trans-Am ★ Family. This time his Death Metal Roll put Trans-Am ★ Abe down for the count. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was furious with Abe over the result and fired him from the team after the match. This is the second time Abe has been fired from the Family. FUMA told everyone that “KUBO-METAL” will be the next person to challenge Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for the Union MAX Title. When BASARA returns to Osaka, “KUBO-METAL” will be the champion! Keep on rockin’!

Naoki Tanizaki continued to attack Ryota Nakatsu after their match until Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine came to the rescue. Gunso & Kabuki Kid then ran in to back up Tanizaki. Kodaka said that BASARA lost their matches to Dove Pro today but BASARA will get their chance at revenge next month. Today was a declaration of war! Kodaka pointed out he is affiliated with Dragon Gate but he sides with Dove Pro in this feud.

Chairs and a ladder were used a lot in the match between Tsukasaga-gun and Dove Pro. The end came when Gunso slammed Takumi Tsukamoto onto the ladder. Kabuki Kid then placed a chair on SAGAT and Gunso hit the Guillotine Drop to win the match. There will be more BASARA Vs Dove Pro matches down the line and Tsukamoto is looking forward to them. He is a death match wrestler more than a hardcore wrestler. He’s been in more dangerous matches than what Dove Pro are used to. Kabuki Kid describes himself & Gunso as Hardcore Craftsmen. They’re not scared of Tsukamoto & SAGAT.

Kuishinbo Kamen placed Gouma Ryu upside down against the turnbuckles in the Tree Of Woe position. Kamen then got knocked down and Ryu fell on top of him for the three count. Calling it a Moonsault is being very generous.

-. 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.
