0. Dark Match: SoCal Crazy defeated Space Galaxy Warrior Andros with La Mistica (7:10).
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.

5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura when Namiguchi pinned Ken Ohka after Kenso Ohka did the Spear Of Fire From The Heart (18:30).

The Twin Ganbare War continued with the original promotion and its counterfit battling each other in a Tag Team Match. Both teams came out to “Bad Communication” and a ringside brawl was quick to happen. Shibata interfered to help out Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling but Ken Ohka got rid of him and hit Osamu Namiguchi with the Spear Of Fire. The referee counted the pin until Shibata pulled him out of the ring. Namiguchi gave Ohka the Lanakila-X then Kenso Ohka hit his version of the Spear Of Fire. Namiguchi got the pin while Shibata held onto Shuichiro Katsumura outside the ring. Kenso gave the referee a Vertical Drop Brainbuster after the match. Shibata was introduced as the newest member of Shin Ganpuro. When they left, Ken Ohka tried to rally his fans. He’s spent four years building Ganbare☆Wrestling and no matter how bad things get he will always be proud of the company. He’s not going to quit if he doesn’t have any talent. If that was true he would have quit wrestling ten years ago. He challenged Shin Ganpuro to a 6-Man Tag for 11th February. It will be Ken Ohka, Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki Vs Namiguchi, Kenso Ohka & Shibata!

Shinichiro Tominaga’s re-introduction to K-DOJO continued with a tag match with him and Hi69 against Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi. Although he lost, Tominaga is getting noticed. Oishi pointed out that everyone in the ring was an ex-K-DOJO wrestler. Asahi shook his head in denial then told Tominaga to get ready to visit Chiba for their participation in K-DOJO’s upcoming Tag League.

Mars Spector refused to let go of the Crab Hold on Chikara after beating him. The referee was able to break them up and Yumehito Imanari then ran in to confront Spector and challenge him to a match next month. Without saying a word, Spector accepted. During the closing speeches, Imanari said he’s been secretly training at the DDT dojo specifically for this challenge.

Ai Shimizu is now zero for two in her trial series after losing to Hiroyo Matsumoto. Her third match in the series will be against Cassandra Miyagi!

Imanari was excited to team with Bambi again but the feeling was not mutual. Either way they won their match when Bambi hit Masayuki with the Standing Shining Wizard then Imanari followed up with a Busaiku Knee Kick that now has a name based around his big girl fetish.

Shota was brought into the ring at the end of the show. He is getting knee surgery that will put him out of action for the rest of the year. All the wrestlers on the roster who previously had surgery gave him words of encouragement and wished him the best.

Will Sasaki go for revenge knowing he could risk facing HARASHIMA’s wrath again afterwards?

In unfortunate news, MIZUHO “graduated” from Tokyo Joshi Pro during the week. MIZUHO had been absent for most of 2016 when she suffered dizziness during intense training exercises. The source of this problem turned out to be a malfunctioning semicircular canal. She took time off to rest but her condition never recovered. After speaking to her doctor and the Tokyo Joshi staff she decided it was time to end her wrestling career and devote time to treating her condition. MIZUHO apologised to the Tokyo Joshi fans for leaving so suddenly.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “ITSUKA NO MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016”, 22/12/2016
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
168 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Beat The Opponent! Eat Lightning, Crap Thunder! Become A Scary Guy!: Rocky Kawamura defeated Chikara with the Balboa Blow (5:55).
2. Ganpuro Special Christmas Present ~Chubby Vs Slim Beauty~: Maya Yukihi & Tequila Saya defeated Bambi & Manami Kanda when Yukihi pinned Kanda with the Wheelwind (11:25).

5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with the Spear Of Fire (18:45).
6. Ken Ohka 15th Anniversary Debut Memorial Match: Ken Ohka defeated Atsushi Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire (15:24).

From the Eternal Young Lion to the Crying Charisma of Ganbare☆Wrestling, a lot has happened to Ken Ohka in his 15 years as a pro wrestler. To celebrate his 15th Anniversary in wrestling, Ohka wanted a match against Atsushi Maruyama. Maruyama has been an inspiration to Ohka ever since he saw him wrestle a big match in 2008. Ohka was also a big Osaka Pro fan before he joined DDT. He kicked out of the Tiger Suplex and pinned Maruyama with the Spear Of Fire. Maruyama said he envies Ohka for making so many friends with his clumsy wrestling while he himself has been scattered around the wrestling scene ever since he quit Osaka Pro. Now it is Ohka who inspires Maruyama because Maruyama now wants to create his own wrestling group. If Ganpuro wants to become a major sports brand then Maruyama’s group will become a major entertainment brand. His rival will be the Yoshimoto Kogyo company!

Ohka had one more announcement to give at the end of the show. His first child was born today! The fans chanted “Dad!” at Ohka as the show ended.

The team of Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi tried to steal all of the attention with their Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling match. They wouldn’t stop talking about how the Shin Ganpuro fans are the best in the world and the Shin Ganpuro wrestlers are the best in the world too.

Even though he was able to wrestle and win his match today, Shota had some bad news to give. He will be going under surgery to his right knee in January and he is expected to miss nearly all of 2017. Ai Shimizu said wrestling Shota taught her the importance of not giving up. Her next match in her series will be against Hiroyo Matsumoto on 21st January.

Shinichiro Tominaga announced he will be teaming with Shiori Asahi as part of the BO-SO Golden Tag League in K-DOJO next year. Ohka said Tominaga will continue to tag with Hi69 in Ganpuro, booking those two against Asahi & Makoto Oishi on 21st January.

Yumehito Imanari used company money to buy female Santa costumes from Don Quijote for the women to wear during their match. Only Bambi wore her costume. Imanari then tried to help out Bambi & Manami Kanda whenever he could. That backfired when Bambi used her whip and hit Imanari by mistake. That allowed Maya Yukihi to pin Kanda without any interruption.

Rocky Kawamura screamed “Adrian!” before knocking out Chikara with a Running Punch.

Ganpuro will once again be providing matches for the RIZIN Martial Arts EXPO on New Year’s weekend at Saitama Super Arena.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BEYOND THE NIGHT SKY 2016”, 12/11/2016
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
142 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Real Tiger Mask Vs Rikidozan III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Chikara with the Jumping Cross Armbreaker (7:25).
2. Ganpuro Special Mixed Tag: American Balloon & Sayaka Obihiro defeated Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu when Obihiro pinned Shimizu with the Bath (10:09).
3. G-COSMOS 2016 in Prince: Takafumi Ito defeated Rionne Fujiwara with a Crooked Headscissors (10:30).
4. Double Main Event I: Shota & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Yukihiro Abe & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shota pinned Tominaga with a Kido Clutch (16:07).
5. Double Main Event II – Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Osamu Namiguchi & Kenso Ohka defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with a Spear (12:24).

The show began with Osamu Namiguchi welcoming everyone to Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling. He said the theme of Shin Ganpuro is major pro wrestling and the main event would prove that. All of the regular Ganbare☆Wrestling matches happening before the main event were just toilet breaks as far as he was concerned. Ken Ohka stormed out and said he will show Namiguchi what the real Ganpuro is like in the main event.

Namiguchi had a big surprise in store for Ohka. The second member of Shin Ganpuro was revealed to be KENSO! However, KENSO came out to Ohka’s entrance music and wore matching gear. He is now Kenso Ohka! Not only did KENSO steal Ohka’s gimmick but he stole his finisher as well when he pinned Yumehito Imanari with the Spear. KENSO calls it a major Spear that is completely different from the fake one Ken Ohka does. Shuichiro Katsumura unexpectedly came out to confront Shin Ganpuro. He doesn’t see himself as a Ganpuro wrestler but he likes it here and won’t stand for this copycat coming in to ruin things. He invited Ken Ohka & Imanari to come train with him in his gym. Ohka said that Ganpuro stands for Ken Ohka, Ganpuro stands for Yumehito Imanari and Ganpuro stands for Shuichiro Katsumura. Together they will fight against Shin Ganpuro!

Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu both felt sorry for American Balloon’s sagging man boobs. Balloon’s man boobs came in handy when he used them to stop Shimizu from giving Sayaka Obihiro the Kamikaze. Obihiro then rolled Shimizu over for the win. Ohka was critical of Shimizu losing the match and encouraged her to try harder for her next match. Ohka said by the time Shimizu’s Ganpuro trial series is done she will become a worthy pro wrestler. Her next match in this series will be against Shota.

Ganpuro will run a special 15th Anniversary show for Ken Ohka at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 22nd December. Ohka has a certain opponent in mind that he is eager to wrestle against but cannot guarantee if he can even negotiate with him. Imanari wants to put together a special women’s match for the show. His original idea was Bambi & Manami Kanda Vs Viper and somebody else. However it seems that Viper is unavailable on that date. Ohka promised Imanari that he will find two beautiful wrestlers to take on Bambi & Kanda.


Sasadango Ill, Kawamura Injured, Shin Ganbare Created

October 26, 2016

My best wishes go out to Super Sasadango Machine for a healthy recovery. He was taken off last Sunday’s Korakuen Hall show with poor health as the reason. A few days later DDT announced that a check up in a hospital found out he is suffering from a mild heart disease. His physician said rest is necessary and he will not be able to wrestle again until further notice. Some of the card changes as the result of this can be seen below.

Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Osamu Namiguchi & X

The folks at Ganbare☆Wrestling had some time to relax after their successful Korakuen Hall debut but now a familiar threat has returned in new clothing. Osamu Namiguchi suddenly announced this week he is creating his own pro wrestling group called Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling (シン・ガンバレ☆プロレス)! The use of Shin (シン) in this name does not mean “new”, it means “thin” as in “Thin Godzilla” from the new kaiju movie. Namiguchi thinks Ganpuro is fake like Hollywood’s Godzilla but Shin Ganpuro will be pure just like “Thin Godzilla”. Shin Ganpuro’s debut will take place on 12th November in Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR at the same time as the normal Ganpuro’s scheduled show. It will only consist of one match and Namiguchi challenged Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to a tag team match. Namiguchi has a mystery partner for the occasion. Ohka accepted and the match will also technically be the main event of the normal Ganpuro show.
