August 20, 2019

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “POCCHARI JOSHI PRO WRESTLING – P2 TRAINSPOCCHATTING”, 20/08/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
202 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Special Poccha Libre Match ~American Drag Queen Vs Miss Jumbo~: Himeka Arita defeated Beauty Suzuki after a Crushed Body Slam (7:27).
2. Pocchaminator Manah Connor Chronicles: Pocchaminator (P-800) defeated Manah Connor (Yuna Manase) with the Canadian Backbreaker (?:??).
3. Pocchari Great Mothers Vs Mad Slender Army ~ Rainup War Without Jingi 2nd Season: Miss Mongol & Hamuko Hoshi defeated Moeka Haruhi & Banny Oikawa when Hoshi pinned Haruhi with a Diving Body Press (12:07).
4. Keiko Takeshita International Friendly Match – Keiko Beyond The Heart: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yumehito Imanari with the German Suplex (?:??).

Yumehito Imanari had an emotional main event with Konosuke Takeshita that explained his infatuation with Takeshita’s mother. Keiko Takeshita scolded her son during the match whenever he was about to do something too violent like using a chair. When Takeshita fought to give Imanari the German Suplex, a voice began to speak over everything. It was the voice of Imanari’s heart. Everybody was told that Imanari’s mother passed away when he was only 20 years old, just 3 days after his first student club wrestling match. She never got to see him wrestle. When Imanari sees Keiko watching her son in the ring he wonders if his own mother would have watched him the same way if she was still alive. That’s why he admires Keiko and also why he wanted to wrestle Takeshita today. So they could both wrestle their best for their moms to see. By now Imanari was fighting back with tears in his eyes but Takeshita was able to hit the German Suplex to win.

After the match Takeshita told Imanari that if he ever feels lonely, he has his permission to call and talk to Keiko. Imanari said has spent the last 13 years of his life searching for maternal love. He found it when he met Konosuke and Keiko. But enough about that. Today’s show was stressful for Imanari to put together. He’s not in the mood to be entertained or pampered right now. Yuna Manase came down to the ring and cheered him up by singing “Soul’s Refrain” from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Imanari joined in while the ring filled with the other wrestlers. Manase left the ring during the performance but came back out wearing a red plugsuit! Imanari asked everyone if they wanted to do a third Pocchari Joshi show. If they do then everyone in the audience should bring their moms with them!

Keiko was involved in the main event because she was appointed as the special ambassador for the match. She came out wearing her son’s amateur wrestling singlet he used back in the 3rd grade. She said it fits her even though she weighs 86kg. She then confessed that she would like Imanari to hold her 86kg body. She also wanted to know if Akito was in attendance.

Hamuko Hoshi and Moeka Haruhi both did sexy poses in front of Daisuke Kiso during the opening trade offs. When Miss Mongol joined in, her pose made Kiso faint. Hoshi bit Haruhi’s arm because she was hungry. Later Mongol threw Haruhi face first into Kiso’s waist in the corner. Banny Oikawa tried to turn things around but Mongol cut her off and Hoshi pinned her with the Diving Body Press.

The Pocchaminator traveled back in time from the year 2050 to pocchaminate every human being with a high BMI level. The only person to stop it it Manah Connor. She was injected with nanomachines before the match but her heightened abilities didn’t seem to have any effect on her enemy. She received instructions from Colonel Hirotsugu Suyama on what to do but none of them worked. She tried calling Yuki Kamifuku but couldn’t get an answer. The Pocchaminator (P-800) took control of the match and was about to do a Choke Slam when Manah received a message from an unlikely source. It was the Stardom owner Rossy Ogawa! He reminded Yuna Manase that she is a Stardom graduate and encouraged her to fight back. Manah yelled the Stardom motto “Believe Now, Shine Tomorrow, We Are Stardom!” as she fought back against The Pocchaminator. Unfortunately The Pocchaminator hit a Lariat and made Manah give up to the Canadian Backbreaker.

When the match was over The Pocchaminator praised Manah Connor for being a great warrior. He warned her that Tokyo will be under future attacks and her pocchari body is the greatest weapon to stop them. Manah went back to being Yuna Manase and she thanked those who helped her. She told The Pocchaminator they should fight together and they left. But unknown to them a video was shown on the screen. It is The Pocchaminator 2! The P-1000 is coming after them!

Beauty Suzuki tried to Body Slam Himeka Arita but wasn’t strong enough to go through with it. Arita landed on top of Suzuki and got the pin.

The show began with Imanari demonstrating the πMAX3D technology he developed. He wore a VR headset while a scene from Manase’s gravure video played. Imanari became… engrossed in the video until Manase got into the ring and gave him a Stunner.

A few relationship situations to look out for on this show. Has The Iron Family truly put their differences aside now that FUMA is on Team Dove Pro? How will Daichi Kazato gel with Best Stretchman Amazon now that he is only partially possessed by Best Stretchman V3? Last, the opener is between Takato Nakano and Masato Kamino who regularly team together.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “POCCHARI JOSHI PRO WRESTLING – P2 TRAINSPOTTING”, 20/08/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Poccha Libre Match ~American Drag Queen Vs Miss Jumbo~: Beauty Suzuki vs Himeka Arita
2. Pocchari Great Mothers Vs Mad Slender Army ~ Rainup War Without Jingi 2nd Season: Miss Mongol & Hamuko Hoshi Vs Moeka Haruhi & Banny Oikawa
3. Keiko Takeshita International Friendly Match – Keiko Beyond The Heart: Yumehito Imanari Vs Konosuke Takeshita
4. Pocchaminator Mana Connor Chronicles: Mana Connor (Yuna Manase) Vs Pocchaminator (P-800)

Yumehito Imanari is promising an “Innovative Invention Experiment” on the show called πMAX Digital Theater. Fans in attendance will be wearing special glasses to watch an extra large screen that is so immersive you will feel like you are inside a womb again. He is using this technology to screen one of Yuna Manase’s DVDs. Those who see it will feel like they are being wrapped around in Manase’s motherhood.

Manase doesn’t get what Imanari is trying to do, she is only focusing on her match. And er… at least I think it is a match. The set up is the main event features the Pocchaminator, a cyborg from the year 2050 that has traveled back in time to kill people who have a BMI value above a certain level on behalf of major advertising agencies. The resistance is led by one person. Not Yuna Manase but Mana Connor! If she cannot stop the P-800 then there is no future for Pocchari Joshi Pro!

Konosuke Takeshita’s mother Keiko is a special ambassador on the show. She will oversee the match between Imanari and her son. Imanari hopes that Keiko will show as much love for him as she does for her own son.

I thought this show was just supposed to be a Trainspotting parody…

BASARA “BASARA 101 ~BANQUET~” Results

July 24, 2019

Fujita Army: Minoru Fujita, Takumi Tsukamoto, Ryota Nakatsu, Yasu Urano, SAGAT, Daiki Shimomura, Masato Kamino, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Antonio Honda

Team Isami defeated Team Fujita in “Banquet Fight 2019”. In the main event Minoru Fujita promised a surprise for his mystery partner and it turned out to be Antonio Honda making his BASARA debut. Naoki Tanizaki got the pin to give Isami Kodaka’s team the victory but after the match everyone found out Nakatsu was only in it for himself. Tanizaki is a Dove Pro wrestler at heart and Dove Pro will be going to war with BASARA in August. He noticed Kodaka won the UWA 6-Man Tag Team Titles recently so he wants to fight for them on 3rd August. Kodaka accepted. When that was done Fujita shifted the attention back to his guest Honda. He said he was really happy to wrestle here today. The show ended with the remaining wrestlers wishing “PEACE & F**k” to everybody.

Takumi Tsukamoto used a Gory Special on FUMA to slide him into a Modified Backslide Pin.

Fujita chose from a hand of playing cards to pick the participants and match stipulations for the early bouts. The submission match prohibited strikes and the wrestlers encouraged each other to fight barefoot.

The Drunker match had wrestlers drinking a glass after every kickout and rope break. Daichi Kazato didn’t want to drink so he wore the Best Stretchman V3 hood whenever he had to take a cup. Masato Kamino grabbed the bottle and forced Yusuke Kubo to drink it from the Camel Clutch position. However Kubo spat the drink back in Kamino’s face and pinned him with the Samson Clutch.


Summer Vacation, BASARA, Beer Garden, Ganpro

BASARA “BASARA 101 ~BANQUET~”, 24/07/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Special Rules: Daichi Kazato & Yusuke Kubo Vs Ryota Nakatsu &
2. Special Rules: X Vs X
3. Special Rules: X & X Vs X & X
4. FUMA Vs Takumi Tsukamoto
5. Isami Kodaka, Naoki Tanizaki & Takato Nakano Vs Minoru Fujita, Yasu Urano & X

Team Fujita: Minoru Fujita, Takumi Tsukamoto, Ryota Nakatsu, Yasu Urano, SAGAT, Daiki Shimomura, Masato Kamino, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, X

Even though Isami Kodaka won this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~, he gave the prize money over to Minoru Fujita so he could produce his own BASARA show. Fujita came up with the idea of a team challenge called “Banquet Fight 2019” between himself and Kodaka. A partial card has been made after the two teams were drafted by the captains. Due to an odd number of wrestlers available, Fujita’s team is one man short so the missing name in the main event is a mystery for now.

Miss Mongol thanked Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari for giving her the opportunities to wrestle even at her age. Before the show took place Mongol contacted Atsushi Onita for permission to close out the show the same way he used to. Onita gave her his blessing but after she did it, the Real GUTS Army attacked them. Shota said today’s result was a fluke and he demanded some rematches to take place on 10th and 11th August. Guts Ishijima won’t be at the 10th August show because he already has a booking with 666. Shota promised to bring along a replacement.

Minoru Fujita approached Shuichiro Katsumura after the semi-main and asked for a match with him. Fujita originally promised he would never come back to Ganbare☆Wrestling but he really wants to wrestle Katsumura. They agreed to have a match on 10th August but the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title will not be on the line.

Naoshi Sano beat Chikara clean then challenged Mitsuo Momota to a match. However Momota had another idea. It is clear that he and his son cannot beat Sano so rather then fight him again, they should all team up instead! That would be a better way for them to study Sano’s strength. Sano and Chikara were both puzzled by the idea but Momota convinced them to try it out.

Ken Ohka had some big news for Kouki Iwasaki. Next month he is going to have a couple of opponents from Big Japan coming in! Iwasaki faces Akira Hyodo on 10th August and Ryuichi Kawakami on the 11th!

Ohka and Shuhei Washida attempted to Bottle Cap Challenge before the show began but they both failed. So they changed the rules into a water drinking contest. Washida beat Ohka.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION 2019”, 21/07/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Calbee & Frito Lay Collaboration Match ~Potato Snacks Agency War No. 1 Final Battle~: King Potato Chips, Masahiro Takanashi & Gota & Asuka Ihashi Vs Dragon Potato Mask, Akito, Kazuki Hirata & Saki Akai
2. 3 Way Tag Match: Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie Vs Yukio Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi Vs Makoto Oishi & Yukio Naya

5. No DQ Match: MAO Vs Jiro Kuroshio
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Joey Ryan & Hiroshi Yamato
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Chris Brookes

Chris Brookes is calling Konosuke Takeshita a boring wrestler. He even felt a little disappointed when he watched Takeshita win the KO-D Openweight Title in the main event yesterday. Takeshita in response calls Brookes the UK’s best wrestler, but then called himself the world’s best wrestler. Before this match takes places, Takeshita will be wrestling in Hindmarsh, Australia for Sub-Zero Pro this Friday. His goal is to win the title there and collect championships from around the world until the Olympics begin.

Akito has nominated Jiro Kuroshio as the next challenger for the DDT Extreme Title. However Kuroshio is already booked on this show so there is no date decided yet for the title match. Akito would like the match to take place on 3rd August at Beer Garden week.

Sanshiro Takagi wants revenge on Yumehito Imanari for revealing his phone number during yesterday’s Weapon Rumble. Takagi was still getting phone calls in the middle of the night. Imanari said the prank is opening up new opportunities for DDT because every company now knows where to call Takagi.

Makoto Oishi is being moved to the 3 Way Tag match since he has partnered up with Yukio Naya before. He is being replaced by Saki Akai in the product placement match.

DDT “YOKOHAMA TWILIGHT 2019 ~JULY~”, 27/07/2019
Yokohama Radiant Hall

1. Akito Marunage Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Ueno Vs Naomi Yoshimura & Yuki Ueno

That is not a mistake. Akito wants Yuki Ueno to be wrestling on both teams. Akito is not in his own Marunage match because he thinks his only responsibility is to produce it. Ueno regularly teams with Naomi Yoshimura but also regularly trains with Takeshita. Oh, there is also the fact that Yoshimura and Takeshita don’t get along. This is a good three way relationship for Akito to experiment which is why he made this match.

Mike Bailey and Shunsuke Sayama will be on the show.
