5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Ken Ohka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi when Ohka pinned Namaguchi with the Spear Of Fire (16:17).

Alliances old and new were formed throughout today’s show because the World’s Strongest Ganbare☆Tag Tournament is taking place in April. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling were defeated in the main event and Kenso Ohka placed the blame on Osamu Namiguchi. Kenso dropped a surprise and said he’ll be teaming with someone else in the tournament. He’ll be teaming with KAZMA SAKAMOTO! After Kenso left, Ken Ohka asked Shinichiro Tominaga to be enter the tournament with him. Tominaga politely declined because he already asked Hi69 to team with him. When the show was over Ohka went searching for a tag partner. Atsushi Maruyama agreed at first but then remembered he is already booked elsewhere. Both Takafumi Ito and Shuichiro Katsumura asked to team with Ohka but he couldn’t choose between them. So Ito and Katsumura decided to team together instead. Finally Ohka got a Facetime call from Ai Shimizu. She is currently in Toyama, Ohka’s hometown. Shimizu is training to become stronger and went to Toyama to learn Ohka’s secrets. To prove it she told Ohka she was on the call with his dad! When the call ended Ohka accepted that he wouldn’t find a tag partner today.

The atmosphere for Mitomi Masayuki Vs Shibata was tense as there was still some uneasiness in their friendship. Masayuki wanted to bury the hatchet but Shibata kept rejecting him. It wasn’t until the match ended that Shibata saw the light and agreed to reform Enjo-gun with Masayuki.

Yumehito Imanari was in a good mood because he just purchased a guide to Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling written by Billy Robinson. Imanari studied the book and predicted he would win his match with the Double Arm Suplex. Whatever he studied didn’t stick because he had to flick through the book again before the bell rang. His attempts to do the Double Arm Suplex failed. Ito countered the move into a Manjigatame then Tsurumaki tapped him out with the Back Facelock. Ito and Katsumura got into a brawl after the match. Ito challenged Katsumura to a singles match then admitted he was getting bored with their current situation.

Sayaka Obihiro began her match with Maruyama by warning him that she’s been taking Shorinji Kempo lessons. He didn’t take her seriously. In fact, Marutama told Obuhiro he’s been studying her matches in preparation and listed all of her signature moves as proof. He challenged her to perform those moves and then pin him so he could kick out of them. He succeeded in kicking out of all of them but an unexpected collision ended with Obihiro falling on top of him and getting the three count. Afterwards Obihiro said she is from Hokkaido, Maruyama is from Osaka and Ohka is from Toyama. She now wants to wrestle opponents from all the other prefectures in Japan.

Ohka approached Yukihiro Abe after the opening match and asked him if he had a partner in mind for the Tag League. Suddenly Keisuke Ishii appeared and did a Double Dropkick with Abe to Ohka. Ishii thinks he himself is a good choice for Abe to team with. Ishii wants to enter a tag league because it reminds him of his favourite AJPW Real World Tag League match, Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama Vs Stan Hansen & Akira Taue from 1999. Now Ishii & Abe are thinking of a team name. They will either be Return Of Young Drama or Memory Of Young Drama.

Another team was formed during the show. Nobuhiro Tsurumaki wants to team with Chikara. The two fought each other before when Tsurumaki under the mask as Mars Spector. Chikara earned his respect during those matches.

1. GANBARE NEW WAVE: Shinichiro Tominaga & Shota Nakagawa defeated Yukihiro Abe & Andromeda KEN when Tominaga submitted KEN with the Just Face Lock (8:33).
2. G-COSMOS 2017 ~ Japan Vs Thailand International Combat In Prince – Punch Drunk Rules: Takafumi Ito defeated Tanomusaku Toba by TKO with a Right Hook (R4 2:26).
3. Ai Shimizu Ganbare☆Wrestling Trial – 3rd Round: Cassandra Miyagi defeated Ai Shimizu with the Tombstone Piledriver (15:55).
4. Japanese Psycho ~When You Fight~: Yumehito Imanari defeated Mars Spector with a Sleeper Hold (9:59).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Ken Ohka, Shuichiro Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Kenso Ohka, Osamu Namiguchi & Shibata when Masayuki pinned Shibata with the Salty Splash (17:39).

Ganbare☆Wrestling struck back at their evil doppelganger Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling with a victory in a 6-Man Tag Match. Kenso Ohka was angry at Shibata for taking the fall and banished him from Shin Ganpuro as punishment! Mitomi Masayuki approached Shibata and asked if he wanted them to team up again. Masayuki said the most fun he’s had in wrestling was when they were part of Enjo-gun together. He knows Shibata doesn’t have to rely on wrestling as a career because he has a successful Youtube channel. But if Shibata wants to continue wrestling, Masayuki will be there for him. Shibata told him to die, then left the ring.

The masked Mars Spector has been a powerful force in Ganpuro since May last year. However Yumehito Imanari not only stood up to him today but beat him too! Imanari survived Spector’s attacks to sink in a Sleeper Hold and never letting go. After the match Spector unmasked and was revealed to be Nobuhiro Tsurumaki, MMA fighter and Super FMW wrestler. Tsurumaki explained the Mars Spector gimmick was a tribute to the late Koichiro Kimura. Kimura wrestled under a mask as Super Uchu Power in DDT. Tsurumaki thought about going to DDT when he came up with the idea but then came across Ganpuro. Him in DDT wouldn’t be a big deal, but him in a small company with many weak wrestlers would be easy for him to make an impact. However during his time here he learned that everybody in Ganpuro are doing their best to help the company grow. Tsurumaki felt it was now time for him to leave but Ken Ohka stopped him. Ohka said his debut match 15 years ago involved Kimura. As long as Tsurumaki does his best, he is welcome in Ganpuro.

Ai Shimizu is now 0-3 in her trial series. Her latest loss was against Cassandra Miyagi from Sendai Girls. Miyagi yelled “Dead, Shimizu!” before hitting the match winning Tombstone Piledriver.

The Punch Drunk Rules match had Takafumi Ito and Tanomusaku Toba both wearing boxing gloves as they wrestled. Strikes, throws and submissions were encouraged by the rules and they fought in rounds until one could beat the other. Ito knocked out Toba with a Right Hook in Round 4 to win.

Shota Nakagawa kicked Andromeda KEN in the face when he refused to shake hands after Match #1.

The opening introductions were interrupted when a foreign masked wrestler entered the ring. He introduced himself as SoCal Crazy, world traveller and No. 1 Best Luchador! He heard Ganpuro is the No. 1 promotion in Japan and wanted to see if that’s true. Ohka scrambled to find an opponent to give Crazy a tryout and found another masked wrestler, Space Galaxy Warrior Andros. Andros was in the area searching for a companion he was separated from while they were protecting planet Earth. Crazy used his Lucha skills to beat him and they shook hands after the match.

Ganpuro has some special shows coming up. The Ganbare☆Wrestling Olympic Games take place on 4th March. Then on 2nd April a Ganbare Tag Tournment will be held.

ohka-onita

After months of preparation the day finally came for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Ohka had taken a page out of Atsushi Onita’s book by promising to retire if today’s show had failed to sell out. Thankfully the promotion’s first show in Korakuen Hall turned out to be a success with over a 1,000 fans in attendance. Ohka took big risks in the ring as well as out of it. The main event was a No Rope Barbed Wire Street Fight Tornado 8-Man Tag Team Death Match with Ohka’s team versus Onita’s team. Those two fought each other while chaos reigned around them. Shota was put through a table by an Onita Piledriver. Yumehito Imanari & Mitomi Masayuki gave Onita a Double Brainbuster onto a barbed wire board. Imanari then brought in a barbed wire bat to use on Onita’s team. Ohka took his punishment and got the crowd to rally behind him. An opening came when Ohka ducked under Onita’s red mist. Osamu Namiguchi was blinded instead! Ohka gave Namiguchi the Fire Thunder Bomb but Hideki Hosaka stopped the pin. Ohka then hit the Flame Spear and this time there was nobody there to stop him.

ohka-mist-namiguchi

After the match Namiguchi demanded Onita to face him but Onita told him it’s enough. Onita invited Ohka to come over to the next FMW show on 24th November and congratulated him on a successful show. Namiguchi said he wasn’t convinced and he will crush Ganpuro but Onita ignored him and began spraying water everywhere. When that was over Ohka had some important announcements to make. He is getting married and he will also become a father in December!

fujita-marriage

Saki Maemura/Fujita had her first match back from retirement and one of her opponents was her ex-husband Minoru Fujita. Madoka and Bambi were also involved playing the role of their step-children. The crowd booed whenever Minoru attacked Saki. At one point somebody in the crowd yelled “Mom!” to motivate Saki. It looked to be all over when Minoru gave her the Tombstone Piledriver. But Bambi turned on Minoru when she stopped the pin with a Shining Wizard! Madoka then gave Minoru the Ranhyei and Saki hit a low altitude Frankensteiner for the three count. After the match Saki told Minoru there is nothing she regrets from their relationship. She’s thinks wrestling is very good so Minoru should continue doing it until he’s dead. Minoru understood. A year ago he came into Ganpuro spitting venom but over time he learned to work hard for his wrestling. He doesn’t know what lies ahead but he’ll make sure to do something his and Saki’s children will be proud of.

tominaga-asahi

Shinichiro Tominaga won Shiori Asahi’s respect with their match together. They were only in K-DOJO together for a brief amount of time before Tominaga quit and moved over to Union Pro. Asahi told him that today might not be the end of their story. If Tominaga is motivated to come back to K-DOJO some day then Asahi will be there waiting for him.

katsumura-ito

With all of the chaos happening elsewhere on the show it was nice to have something more straightforward. That’s where Shuichiro Katsumura and Takafumi Ito came in. Katsumura kept trying to lock in the Cross Armbreaker but Ito did what he could to break away. Finally Katsumura applied the move with nowhere for Ito to go. Ito never tapped out but the referee had to stop the match for his safety. Katsumura was declared the winner although Ito was dissatisfied with the result.

ishii-shootingstar

Keisuke Ishii decided to pull out something special for his first match against Yukihiro Abe in years. Ishii won the match with a Shooting Star Press! It was crooked but it did the job. Ishii said the show’s theme was surprise so that was his surprise.

ganpuro-gatoh

The opener was a showcase for Ganpuro’s women as Aoi Ishibashi & Ai Shimizu took on Emi Sakura & “Kotori” from Gatoh Move. Shimizu almost won with a Fisherman Suplex on “Kotori” but she kicked out of the pin. “Kotori” held Shimizu back while Sakura got the three count on Ishibashi with La Magistral Cradle.

shibata-royale

A dark match Battle Royal was held featuring the colourful cast of misfits and oddities that have wrestled in Ganpuro during its existence. Fumihito Kihara and Naoshi Sano focused on fighting each other from the moment the bell rang. Both of them continued fighting each other. Choun-Shiryu tried to Headbutt Mr. No but only hurt himself doing so. American Balloon used his massive man boobs to block Mr. No’s Headbutt much to everyone’s disgust. As the eliminations piled up Dr. Kiriko grabbed Balloon and force fed him some mystery medicine to make him faint. Mars Spector cleared the ring until it was down to just him and Shibata. A missed kick from Spector sent him over the top rope and Shibata knocked him off to be the last man standing. Shibata’s prize for winning is one wish to be granted by Ken Ohka within reason.
