3. BASARA’s 12.12.12: Yasu Urano defeated Yusuke Kubo with the Tombstone Piledriver (11:31).

6. BASARA’s 12.12.12: Tank Nagai defeated Ryuichi Sekine with the Diving Senton (10:20).
7. BASARA’s 12.12.12: SAGAT defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Goregrind (10:42).

Every singles match on this show had a 12 minute time limit. SAGAT scored a big victory in the main event over Ryota Nakatsu. He avoided the V Slider and dropped Nakatsu with a Death Valley Bomb. With over a minute left to go, SAGAT hit the Goregrind and got the three count. When his celebration was done, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi entered the ring with a brand new look. This was his first appearance in BASARA since his travels to India so he could learn yoga. He reintroduced himself to the crowd and said that everyone in the Metal Family have been in suffering and they should learn yoga to free themselves. FUMA thought Hiroshi went to Indonesia and said they have a good heavy metal scene over there. Hiroshi began singing a hymn that put FUMA, SAGAT and Yusuke Kubo into a trance. He then told everyone he will return at Korakuen Hall on 3rd May.

Isami Kodaka Vs Manabu Hara was the only match using the 12.12.12 rules to end in a time limit draw. Hara said that is was difficult for him to find his rhythm because of the time limit. He usually finds it after 10 minutes but in this case having only two minutes remaining to go out and win threw him off.

Hercules Senga & Gouma Ryu fell apart as a team when they collided by accident. The Best Stretchman team then hit Ryu with a Double Stretch Kick to win. Senga refused to have another rematch with them. Instead he wants to take them to court with the ultimate goal of banishing them from BASARA! Ryu promised to defend the Stretchmen in the Pro Wrestling Trial.

Tomoya Kawamura made an appearance at the beginning of the show to talk about the end of his contract with BASARA. He explained what led to his decision to leave and admits he feels selfish over it. However he still intends to wrestle in the future and hopes that his path will bring him back to BASARA some day.

6. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Final: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA & SAGAT when Nakatsu submitted SAGAT with the Crescent Moon (19:16).

Cavalry have won the 2018 IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT! A busy day for Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu began with them beating Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe at the start of the show. Sekine put Abe in the Let’s Combine and Nakatsu kept Hara away from them with a German Suplex for the finish. The other semi final saw FUMA & SAGAT eliminate Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi. Stretchman did well to knock FUMA out of the ring but he was met with an Axe Bomber and the Goregrind from SAGAT.

In the final Nakatsu trapped SAGAT in the Crescent Moon crab hold to earn the victory and win Cavalry the tournament. Sekine cried out that Cavalry were finally getting the results they wanted but there is more for them to do. Next up in their plan is the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles match on the 25th February DDT show. Sekine & Nakatsu fought against Abe in the semi final and it made them bond stronger as a trio because they all communicate through fighting.

The Electric Chair Superplex that Isami Kodaka & Yoshihisa Uto have been using together is now called the Axis Fall. It won them their match today but Kodaka still came dangerously close to landing badly onto his own head from the move.

In the lead up to this month’s Pro Wrestling Trial there was no mention of who was the accused was going to be. When it begun Hercules Senga was surprised to find out that it was him! Gouma Ryu accused Senga of exploiting other wrestlers by becoming a lawyer without having the proper skill level needed to do the job. Senga denied the accusation and called the whole thing a farce. An objection came from Isami Kodaka who was dressed as a lawyer for the occasion. He suggested to Ryu and Senga that they should reach a settlement but Ryu attacked him from behind. Ryu wanted to fight Senga so they wrestled until Ryu pinned Senga with La Magistral Cradle. Senga said afterwards there is one place higher than BASARA and it is DDT! Senga demanded a meeting with Sanshiro Takagi and he wants it to happen at BASARA’s show in Seijo next month.

1. Hercules Senga defeated Daiki Shimomura with the Yellow Dragon (9:05).
2. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: FUMA & SAGAT defeated Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa when FUMA pinned Nakano with the Heavy Metal Anthem (11:55).
3. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi defeated Isami Kodaka & Yoshihisa Uto when Oosugi pinned Kodaka with the Tsukinoishi (13:16).
4. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Yusuke Kubo when Hara submitted Kubo with a Chickenwing Armlock (16:01).
5. IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT – Round 1: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano when Sekine submitted Urano with the Let’s Combine (27:41).

In a big surprise, the two wrestlers from last year’s winning team were both eliminated in the first round this year. Isami Kodaka’s first problem was his partner Yoshihisa Uto was disturbed by Best Stretchman V3 and didn’t know what to do with him. Kodaka’s other problem was Tsutomu Oosugi being completely ready for him. Oosugi got the upset pin over Kodaka to advance the Best Stretch team to the semi-final. Oosugi said he is now a trainer with a cause and he challenges Kodaka to put the Union MAX Title on the line against him. Kodaka agreed to it and the match will happen on 3rd March. All Kodaka asks is for Oosugi to come in his regular wrestling gear instead of the Best Stretch uniform he wore for today’s match.

Takumi Tsukamoto also had a bad go in his 1st Round match. He was taken out by Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu. That left Yasu Urano alone to be picked apart by Cavalry at the end. Sekine struggled to stand after the match because of damage to his left knee but he and Nakatsu were able to brag about their recent good match record in the venue.

The Metal Family had mixed results in the two remaining 1st Round Matches. FUMA & SAGAT were able to beat the rookie team of Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa. However Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & Yusuke Kubo lost to Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe. Ryuichi gave his condolences to Kubo backstage and acted like Kubo died in the ring. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi complained about how much he hates shoot style wrestling. Everyone should be doing powerful American style wrestling instead. They will leave it up to FUMA & SAGAT to win the rest of the tournament for them.

The IRON FIST TAG TOURNAMENT semi-final match-ups are Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu Vs Manabu Hara & Fuminori Abe and FUMA & SAGAT Vs Best Stretchman V3 & Tsutomu Oosugi. The semi-finals and final will happen on 19th February.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi announced his first match back from injury will take place on the 3rd May Korakuen Hall show. He’s been recovering from a separated shoulder since last summer.

6. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Fuminori Abe with the Majigatame Type 1244 (19:09).
*V2 for Isami Kodaka.

When Fuminori Abe asked for a Union MAX Title shot he wanted to find out how far he has progressed since he started wrestling in BASARA. The champion Isami Kodaka was more than happy to oblige. Abe put up a good fight but Kodaka outwrestled him and made him submit to a Manjigatame. Kodaka told Abe that his body aches but the match was fun. Abe said even though he lost he was able to prove he enjoys wrestling more than anyone else. Kodaka agreed but told Abe he needs to take the next step. It’s fun now but Abe needs to grow to enjoy it even more. Kodaka told him there are only a handful of moments in his 15 year career when he experienced true ecstasy. Abe said there is no chance he can be compared to Munenori Sawa right now but his goal in the next few years is to go beyond Sawa then he can challenge Kodaka again.

IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family have joined forces to become the Metal Family! For their first match together Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, FUMA & SAGAT came out to “(You Can Still) Rock In America” by Night Ranger. SAGAT also got into the swing of things by bringing a guitar with him to play during the entrance. He countered Ryota Nakatsu’s Cross Armbreaker and won the match with the Goregrind. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi shouted words of praise to SAGAT afterwards. Phrases like “Good job!”, “Gore of the year!”, “Feel so good!” and “I’m coming!” which was then corrected to “Home coming!”

Both Hercules Senga & Takato Nakano asked Best Stretchman V3 to return Tsutomu Oosugi but Stretchman told them that Oosugi wanted to team with him. In the match itself Stretchman blocked a low kick from Senga and Oosugi rolled on top of Senga with a School Boy to pin him. Afterwards Senga asked Oosugi if he wanted to win so badly that he was willing to team with Stretchman. He then took out a promotional Speed Of Sounds photo to try and tug Oosugi’s emotional strings. When Stretchman saw the photo he finally realised that Senga and Oosugi are a tag team. He then had a brainstorm. The three of them can team up together! Senga refused because he does not want to conform to the Best Stretch style. Senga told the two he will see them in court on 6th January!

1. Shinya Ishida & Takato Nakano defeated Yasu Urano & Gouma Ryu when Ishida pinned Ryu with the Boom Boom Elbow (13:02).
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).
4. Isami Kodaka & Tank Nagai defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Kodaka pinned Sekine with a Frankensteiner (17:46).
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.

7. Union MAX Title: Isami Kodaka defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) with the Isamuashi Zan (16:35).
*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.
