The third show of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament was headlined by a rematch of last year’s final. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Isami Kodaka last year to win the tournament and repeated the success and was able to beat him again today as part of the group stage. Hiroshi told Kodaka afterwards that he has his respect but he has to win because he is the No. 1 Gaijin in BASARA!

It’s been a poor start to the tournament for Takumi Tsukamoto. First he loses to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, next he loses to Ryuichi Sekine. Two defeats in a row against arguably the two toughest wrestlers in Block A is not a good sign for Tsukamoto’s chances to finish in first. Sekine is in good spirits despite feeling in a lot of pain after the match. He thinks his match with Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi at the end of the group stage will determine who will win Block A.

Best Stretchman V3 continues to think his opponents are monsters and he is the superhero sent to vanquish them. His not so secret identity was exposed when Yusuke Kubo unmasked him to avoid the Best Stretch Bomb. Surprise, it’s Daichi Kazato! Kubo pinned him with a Gedo Clutch and Kazato hurriedly covered his face with a shirt to avoid being seen.

Gouma Ryu realised that trying to wrestle properly wasn’t going to work out for him. So inspired by his opponent Ryota Nakatsu, Ryu decided to study MMA to prepare for this match. After all, UFC is selling more PPVs than WWE nowadays and superstars like CM Punk and Batista made the jump over so why not him too? Ryu declared the match was now an MMA fight but the request was not granted. He tried to have an MMA fight anyway and tapped out to an Armlock.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “NISHI E HIGASHI E 2017”, 31/05/2017
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Debut Match: Ganbare☆Joshi Wrestler I Vs Kaori Yoneyama
2. There Is No Choice But To Do! There Is No Choice But To Die! Decisive Battle!: Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Ganbare The Great
3. When It Is A Match! Show Me Ganbare Soul!: Ken Ohka & Gota Ihashi Vs Kenso Ohka & KAZMA SAKAMOTO

Ganbare☆Wrestling is attempting to bring back its Ganbare☆Joshi brand. The joshi project came about for a show two years ago but nothing had been done with it since. After witnessing female shootboxers from around the world at the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO, Ganpuro was inspired to bring the project back. This time Ganbare☆Joshi will be built around a brand new masked wrestler Ken Ohka is raising from scratch. The wrestler is actually Haruka Kato and she even admits as such but she is willing to reinvent herself. Her dream is to wrestle overseas and she hopes this experiment will help her achieve it. She hopes her new name will be something world class like Asuka. Her “debut” match will be against Kaori Yoneyama.

More details on the first Ganbare☆Climax emerged today. It will be a 16 man tournament open to both domestic and foreign wrestlers. Several Ganpuro wrestlers will participate but they will also be looking out for strong talent to fill in the remaining spots. It is a complete coincidence that a tournament of this calibur is taking place in Tokyo on the 11th, 12th and 13th August. Nope, no attempt at riding on another tournament’s coat tails here. None at all. Ken Ohka chose this date only because he wants to have wrestling on in the summer and the Climax refers to the end of summer. Nothing else!
