GANBARE☆WRESTLING “COMEBACK ANYTIME 2020”, 14/06/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
82 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Shuhei Washida Trial Singles Match: Minoru Fujita defeated Washi Sakurai with the Suffering Lock (10:35).
2. Master And Disciple Confrontation! Special Mixed Tag Match: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Yumehito Imanari & HARUKAZE when Katsumura pinned Imanari with a Low Kick (18:37).
3. Special Single Match: Asuka defeated Shota with the ASKA FANTASY (10:48).
4. Ganpro Vs RENEGADES Full Face to Face Battle: Shinichiro Tominaga & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Tominaga pinned Watase with a Power Bomb Switchback (17:05).
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated Ken Ohka with the Neck And Arm Lock (14:38).
*V7 for Keisuke Ishii.

Ganbare☆Wrestling is the next compaby to say they are now back to holding shows after a two and a half month absence. The roster all came down to the ring one by one at the start of the show. Only Ken Ohka and Yumehito Imanari got into the ring after Ohka told the others to respect social distancing. Together Ganpro promised to make today’s show a success in front of the crowd.

In the main event Keisuke Ishii successfully defended the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title for the 7th straight time. Ohka hit the Fire Spear twice but couldn’t get the pin. In return Ishii struck Ohka with a Kneelift to the face, landed a Double Knee Drop and locked in the Neck And Arm Lock to get the submission victory. Afterwards Ishii said if he makes it to over 10 defences in this title reign then he will break the record for most overall defences in the championship’s history. He wanted to defend the title today and originally thought Ohka didn’t deserve to be the challenger. However, Ohka’s passion for pro wrestling in the match they just had proved Ishii wrong. Ohka reminded Ishii that their Loser Leaves Town Match in Union Pro seven years ago is what led to the creation of Ganbare☆Wrestling! He encouraged Ishii to break the title defence record but warned he wants to be the one who stops his reign.

The semi-main event tag had an awkward ending where Shinichiro Tominaga grabbed onto the referee to prevent Mizuki Watase from doing a Tiger Suplex. Watase tried to do a Power Bomb instead but Tominaga Cradled him to steal the three count. He was happy to win it that way. Meanwhile Kouki Iwasaki and Shigehiro Irie had a staredown with each other after the match.

1. 4 Vs 4 Survival Tag Match: Shuichiro Katsumura, Shota, Washi Sakurai & Minoru Fujita (3) defeated Keisuke Ishii, Yumehito Imanari, Shinichiro Tominaga & Kouki Iwasaki (2).
1a. Shota & Washi Sakurai defeated Yumehito Imanari & Kouki Iwasaki when Shota pinned Imanari with a Cradle (11:27).
1b. Shinichiro Tominaga & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shota & Washi Sakurai when Iwasaki submitted Sakurai with a Texas Cloverleaf (8:07).
1c. Shinichiro Tominaga & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Shota when Iwasaki pinned Shota with a Ground Cobra Twist (1:27).
1d. Shuichiro Katsumura & Minoru Fujita defeated Shinichiro Tominaga & Kouki Iwasaki when Fujita pinned Tominaga with the Modified Samson Clutch (8:11).
1e. Shuichiro Katsumura & Minoru Fujita defeated Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki by TKO when Katsumura used the Ninja Choke on Iwasaki (16:30).

A unique match format was used for the tag team elimination match. Every round was a regular two vs two tag match. Whoever lost a fall would be eliminated and replaced by a teammate until one team was reduced to its last remaining member. Shuichiro Katsumura surprised everyone with the secret fourth member of his team. Everyone in the room expected it to be Ken Ohka. Instead it was Minoru Fujita! Katsumura even gave a big hint it was him by wearing a Fujita shirt to the ring. He jokingly called Fujita “The Fake Ken Ohka”.

The match began with Yumehito Imanari & Kouki Iwasaki on one side and Shota & Washi Sakurai on the other. Imanari tried to give Shota a Fisherman Suplex but Shota pulled him down by the hair and pinned him for the first elimination. Shinichiro Tominaga came in yet it was Iwasaki who got Sakurai to give up with a Texas Cloverleaf. Iwasaki then caught Shota in a Ground Cobra Twist for another elimination. That left Katsumura & Fujita as the last pair left on their team. Fujita summoned the spirit of Ken Ohka to fight like an underdog. He used a Modified Samson Clutch to get rid of Tominaga. That meant the last man left outside Keisuke Ishii was now able to enter the match. Katsumura trapped Iwasaki in the Ninja Choke and the match was stopped when Iwasaki went motionless.

Katsumura praised Fujita for coming to help him while Ohka wasn’t around. Fujita isn’t the Fake Ken Ohka. He is Shin Ken Ohka! Fujita explained he is in perfect condition because he has wrestled throughout the entire pandemic while everyone else stayed home. He told the others to call him whenever Ohka isn’t around. Do not call him Shin Ken Ohka. He should be more like Shin Osamu Namiguchi from Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling!

Yoshihiro Sakai, aka Muscle Sakai and nobody else, was appointed the President and Representative Director of Sakai Seiki Co., Ltd on 1st June. It is a farm equipment manufacturer and also Sakai’s family business. He originally retired from pro wrestling in 2010 to focus on that job and eventually succeed to the top. A decade later and it finally happened. To celebrate, the Super Sasadango Machine Vs Pokotan match will be dedicated to his achievement. I think it is being filmed in Niigata too since it was originally advertised as a Remote Pro Wrestling match.

Spring Is Blooming But Everything Will Probably Get Cancelled Anyway

March 23, 2020

Who knows how much of this will stick in the next few days. I’m writing this while hearing the Olympics are likely to get postponed until next year. If that’s going down then no way does the pro wrestling schedule in Japan for the rest of the year remain unscathed.

BASARA “BASARA 125 ~BANQUET~”, 24/03/2020

6. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs Winners Of 24/3 Challenger Tag Match

The No. 1 Contenders for the IRON FIST Tag Titles won’t have to wait long for the title match.

Ryuichi Sekine Vs Minoru Fujita looks like a de facto No. 1 Contender’s match for the Union MAX Title. Don’t know why else two Sento Minzoku wrestlers would face off against each other. Then again I’ve been struggling to follow BASARA ever since the split so I have to be missing the context for it.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “SPRING TOUR ’20 ~HEART & BODY~”, 28/03/2020
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe (c) Vs Maki Itoh & Raku

The Tampa show next month being cancelled means Yuka Sakazaki Vs Su Yung can no longer go ahead. That means there is currently no No. 1 Contender for the Princess Of Princess Title. To keep Sakazaki from feeling lonely on top for much longer, a 4 Way Match will be held this week to determine her next challenger. The options are the previous champ Miyu Yamashita, Sakazaki’s regular tag partner Mizuki, superhero trickster Hyper Misao and breaking out of the pack Yuki Aino.

Yukio Sakaguchi has stepped up to challenge Masato Tanaka for the KO-D Openweight Title. It’s only been around three months since Eruption was formed and they are already making their move to take over DDT! Tanaka is bringing in Takuya Sugawara to even the numbers a little.

Konosuke Takeshita, Chris Brookes and Yuki Ueno were going to be in Tampa along with the Tokyo Joshi Pro crew but that’s not happening now. The three of them will instead wrestle each other back in Japan. Show them what America will miss lads.

The 5th Match in the Okibariyasu series is going to be kick heavy. Saki Akai faces the freelancer Syuri.

1. Special Single Match ~Beauty And Hentai~: Asuka Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Hataage 6th Anniversary Match ~New And Old Ganpro Vs Tomodachi-gun~: Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Minoru Fujita & Hagane Shinno

Who has the more beautiful Moonsault, Asuka or Shinichiro Tominaga? Who has the more perverted Moonsault? Does that even make sense? Either way, the answer for that one is Tominaga. I still haven’t gotten over the time he compared himself to XVideos in a promo.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2020”, 12/04/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Kazusada Higuchi
2. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs MAO & Mike Bailey

With Sakaguchi going after the KO-D Title, Kazusada Higuchi has made it his mission to win the Saitama Super Arena Sword from Tetsuya Endo. If Sakaguchi and Higuchi both get their way then “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020” will have an all Eruption main event!

3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Antonio Honda

It took a few tries and asking the right person but Antonio Honda is getting his DDT UNIVERSAL Title match. Maybe tranquility is the right path for him and Daisuke Sasaki… Pfft! Yeah right, what wrestler ever made it big thanks to tranquility?

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X
2. Special Tag Match ~ HarashiMarufuji Vs CimaSoma!: HARASHIMA & Naomichi Marufuji Vs CIMA & Soma Takao
3. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs Holder Of The Saitama Super Arena Sword

So right now the SSA main event is Tanaka Vs Endo. But there are still title matches to come and Right To Challenge Gauntlets still in play that can completely change the course of the KO-D Title scene over the next two months. Also the Coronavirus cancelling everything but let’s not think about that.


GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HERMIT PURPLE 2020” Results

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HERMIT PURPLE 2020”, 21/03/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
135 Fans

1. Now Hit The Iron While It’s Hot! Ganpro Vs BASARA Battle: Ken Ohka defeated Tetsuo Usui with a Crab Hold (9:33).
2. That Tragedy Again? Enter The Entertainer’s Wife In The Second Call Of HARUKAZE!: Kuishinbo Kamen & Miss Mongol defeated Shota & HARUKAZE when Mongol pinned Shota with a Lariat (0:07).
2a. Rematch – Osaka Style Wrestling Rules: Kuishinbo Kamen & Miss Mongol defeated Shota & HARUKAZE when Mongol pinned Shota with a Lariat (0:08).
3. Worldwide Tag Match ~The Wonders Of Seiseki Sakuragaoka When India, Canada And Toyama Collide!~: Mike Bailey & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Yumehito Imanari & Baliyan Akki when Tominaga pinned Imanari with a Moonsault Press (12:43).
2b. Rematch: Shota & HARUKAZE defeated Kuishinbo Kamen & Miss Mongol when HARUKAZE pinned Kamen with a School Boy (4:28).
4. Special 6-Man Tag Match ~THE HALFEE Vs Eruption~: Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai defeated Katsuzaki Shunosuke, Moehiko Harumisawa & Washi Sakurai when Higuchi pinned Sakurai with a Lariat (17:09).
5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Double Arm Extreme Driver TURBO (20:14).
*V6 for Keisuke Ishii.

Keisuke Ishii pulled out a modified version of his Double Arm Extreme Driver to beat Kouki Iwasaki. The Double Arm Extreme Driver TURBO has Ishii folding his opponent’s arms then dropping him from the side rather than straight down, sort of like an Emerald Flowsion.

Eruption’s entry into Ganbare☆Wrestling saw them defeat THE HALFEE. The home team put up a fight but they were wiped out when Saki Akai gave Moeka Haruhi the Quetzalcoatl, Yukio Sakaguchi knocked down Shuichiro Katsumura with the God’s Right Knee and Kazusada Higuchi pinned Washi Sakurai with a few Lariats. Higuchi admitted it is a big deal to beat THE HALFEE. Eruption are here to beat everybody in Ganpro. Akai said nobody in Ganpro has any glamour or charm. Ken Ohka stepped on the apron to confront Eruption but they left the ring.

The reunion of Yumehito Imanari & Baliyan Akki was like those of two brothers. They were happy to see each other again. Imanari tried to show off a Taekwondo style against Mike Bailey but was quickly shown to be out of his depth. Bailey crushed him with the Ultima Weapon and Shinichiro Tominaga hit a Moonsault Press afterwards for the win.

Nobody was more motivated about today’s show than Shota. He was so motivated that he got pinned immediately by Miss Mongol. Shota convinced his opponents to have a rematch by singing to them. Mongol again pinned him with a Lariat as soon as the bell rang. Later in the show Shota & HARUKAZE returned to the ring demanding another rematch. This time he ducked Mongol’s Lariat and a proper Osaka Style Wrestling rules match took place. Mongol accidentally hit Kuishinbo Kamen with the Lariat and HARUKAZE pinned him with a School Boy. After the match Kamen sat on a chair and refused to move in protest. Shota & HARUKAZE lifted him out of the room. Mongol then sat on the chair in protest. Shota & HARUKAZE couldn’t lift her so she eventually left by herself.

The BASARA rookie Tetsuo Usui threw everything he had at Ohka. But he was dropped on his head with the Hurricane Driver then forced to tap from a Crab Hold. Getting to run the show today reminds Ohka why he loves pro wrestling. He said humans have lived for thousands of years so they will never lose to a virus! Pro wrestling, no wait, Ganbare☆Wrestling will destroy the Coronavirus and save the world! Wash your hands!

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020
Tokyo Seijo Hall
125 Fans

1. Ganpro World Tryout: Shin Suzuki defeated E10 with the Besitanic (8:53).
2. Ganpro Specialty Special 3 Way Match ~HARUKAZE’s Close Call~: Kuishinbo Kamen & Kuishinbo Kamen (Shota) defeated HARUKAZE by Disqualification when HARUKAZE unmasked both Kamens (7:59).
3. Ganpro & GanJo Special Mixed Tag Match: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Shinichiro Tominaga & Asuka when Katsumura submitted Tominaga with a Cross Armbreaker (12:29).
4. Ganpro Vs TTT Full Battle: Ken Ohka defeated Guts Ishijima with the Fire Spear (7:41).
5. Ganpro Vs Pro Wrestling BASARA Full Battle: Kouki Iwasaki & Washi Sakurai defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Tetsuo Usui when Iwasaki submitted Usui with a Texas Cloverleaf (12:56).
6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated Yumehito Imanari by TKO with the Double Arm Neck Lock (22:48).
*V5 for Keisuke Ishii.

A never say die attitude from Yumehito Imanari led to him having the match of his life. After a hard fight for over 20 minutes, Keisuke Ishii gave Imanari the Tiger Driver. Imanari didn’t respond so the referee began a 10 count. Imanari was able to get back to his feet on time but he couldn’t defend himself against Ishii’s next attacks. When the Double Arm Neck Lock was applied, Imanari was motionless and the match was called. Ishii has achieved the 5th defence of his current Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title reign. He gave Imanari credit and called him a wonderful pro wrestler.

Kouki Iwasaki came out to challenge Ishii next. He said Ishii always wins and that has made Ganbare☆Wrestling really boring. They are usually a tag team but Iwasaki wants to win the title from Ishii and stand in the middle of the ring as a symbol of Ganpro’s strength! Ishii reached out for a handshake but found himself ducking a High Kick from Iwasaki! Iwasaki left the ring smiling.

Washi Sakurai and Ryuichi Sekine had to be pulled apart after Match #5. They kept trying to attack each other even after Iwasaki had submitted Tetsuo Usui.

The feud between Ganpro and what’s left of the Real GUTS Army can be put to rest. Ken Ohka defeated Guts Ishijima in a clean and decisive manner.

Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi are continuing to dress up in THE HALFEE costumes and perform a song for their entrance. Asuka hit a big Moonsault onto them out of the ring. But back in the ring Katsumura caught Shinichiro Tominaga in a Cross Armbreaker. Tominaga tried to fight out of it until Haruhi landed a Double Stomp on him. Katsumura then tightened the Armbreaker until Tominaga gave up.

Shota disguised himself as Kuishinbo Kamen by wearing a similar looking mask. However he also wore a grey tracksuit instead of a costume similar to Kamen’s. After a collision with the Daisuke Kiso, Shota unmasked the real Kamen and threw the mask to HARUKAZE. Shota acted like he was also unmasked, despite still wearing a mask. When Kiso got back up he saw HARUKAZE holding the mask and disqualified her, rewarding the match to both of her opponents. HARUKAZE sat down in a chair to protest the result but the two Kamens lifted the chair out of the room with her still sitting on it.

The visiting E10 was described as “Now on honeymoon” during his introduction. Unfortunately he lost his match to Shin Suzuki so let’s hope the wife wasn’t around to see that.

At the start of the show Asuka announced she will be regularly wrestling in Ganpro starting from today.

4. Ganpro Three Big Singles Match – Nemuro Vs Hakodate Full Battle: Tetsuhiro Kuroda defeated Kouki Iwasaki with a Lariat (12:03).
5. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles – Ganpocha-gun Vs THE HALFEE: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol (c) defeated Moehiko Harumisawa, Katsuzaki Shunosuke & Washi Sakurai when Imanari pinned Sakurai with the Chubby Knee Kick (18:43).
*V1 for Ganpocha-gun.

The final of four Ganbare☆Wrestling shows today was headlined with a GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles defence. The challengers are normally Moeka Haruhi, Shuichiro Katsumura & Shuhei Washida. But today they are Moehiko Harumisawa, Katsuzaki Shunosuke, Washi SakuraiTHE HALFEE! They entered the ring singing “Distance Of The Starry Sky” by THE ALFEE. But when they were done they didn’t wait for Ganpocha-gun to finish their own entrance. An ambush began the match. Things got out of hand when Miss Mongol pulled the fake eyelashes off of Harumisawa. Ken Ohka tried to give her the Brainbuster but it was countered into the Double Wrist Armsault. Sakurai kicked out of the Chubby Knee from Yumehito Imanari and slapped his way back into the match. But Imanari took him down with another Chubby Knee Kick for the finish.

Imanari thought THE HALFEE was a weird idea but he is now jealous after seeing their entrance. He was going to close out the show with a speech but Keisuke Ishii ran in and attacked him, just like he did this morning. This time Imanari blocked the Fisherman Suplex but Ishii fought harder and left him laying with the Double Arm Clutch Driver.

When Ishii left, Sakurai ignored what just happened so he could talk about his own problems. He debuted two years ago but today’s defeat was the most frustrating. He will get stronger and everyone will remember the name Washi Sakurai! Ohka shouted at Sakurai and dared him to throw a strike. Sakurai did so and Ohka responded with a Headbutt. It was all to show that Sakurai will do his best. The lesson Sakurai learned is if he is going to climb to the top he will always be attacked along the way. The show closed with THE HALFEE singing “Distance Of The Starry Sky” again.

The rest of the card was made up of regional based matches between Ganpro wrestlers against special guests. Kouki Iwasaki went against Tetsuhiro Kuroda of FMW fame. Iwasaki showed a lot of fight and kicked out of the Technan Buster at one. But his Middle Kick was countered with a Lariat that kept him down for the count.

Shota’s special match was against Shiori Asahi. The two traded submissions and looked evenly matched. The difference came when Asahi removed a turnbuckle pad during a rope break and threw Shota into the exposed corner. Shota was helpless and easily defeated after that moment.

Gota Ihashi got his request to team with HARUKAZE again. Their teamwork together is improving and it kept them motivated whenever Ishii & Shigehiro Irie took control. Late in the match Ishii put HARUKAZE in a Sleeper Hold while Irie applied a Camel Clutch to Ihashi. The underdogs grabbed each other by the hand to keep the pressure off until they were pulled away. There was no coming back after that and HARUKAZE gave up to Ishii’s Double Arm Neck Lock.

The only Ganpro regular to win one of the regional matches was Shinichiro Tominaga. He worked on Shigeyuki Kawahara’s arm until Kawahara’s guard was left open for the JK jumping knee kick.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TURNED ORANGE 2020”, 19/01/2020
Saitama Orange Town
114 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Orange Town Specialty 3 Way Match: Yumehito Imanari defeated Shota and Shinichiro Tominaga when Imanari pinned Tominaga with the Koshi Michi Clutch (12:40).
2. Orange Town Specialty Mixed Tag Match: Moeka Haruhi & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Gota Ihashi & HARUKAZE when Haruhi pinned Ihashi with a School Boy ().
3. Orange Town Specialty Tag Match: Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Keisuke Ishii & Shuhei Washida when Ohka pinned Washida with the Fire Spear (13:36).

The team of Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura were introduced as The Ohka Spears Club. When they won in the main event, Ohka said The Ohka Spears Club will live on forever in Saitama Orange Town! He thanked Keisuke Ishii for putting in all the hard work promoting the show. He also told the fans that if you come to see Ganbare☆Wrestling at least once then you are part of the Ganpro family. Ishii hopes to hold an all day wrestling show in the venue one day.

Gota Ihashi wants to team with HARUKAZE more often. Ohka accepted his request and put together Ihashi & HARUKAZE Vs Ishii & Shigehiro Irie on 2nd February.

The 3 Way Match was mostly comedy which annoyed Shota. He wanted it to be an outrageous brawl around the fans. He kept trying to get members of the audience involved in the match but his opponents kept turning them down to keep them out of harm’s way. All the wrestlers hit each other with Low Blows until the referee also got hit below the belt. Shota had Shinichiro Tominaga pinned with the Delfin Clutch but the ref was still doubled over. Yumehito Imanari hit Shota with the Chubby Knee Kick and when the ref recovered, got the pin with his version of the Gedo Clutch.

Two final matches complete the Ittenyon card. Natsumi Maki returns from injury with a high profile match against Sareee. There is a lot of gossip about where Sareee will be wrestling in 2020 so it is nice to see her stop by Tokyo Joshi Pro for a match. As for Maki, win or lose her path will almost certainly lead her back to the International Princess Title. We already heard if Hikari Noa wins the title she wants to defend it against Maki. But Maki Itoh on the other hand is keeping her cards closer to her chest.

The rookie Sena Shiori debuts in the opening match.

A fight broke out between Ken Ohka and Takato Nakano at Wednesday’s press conference for Sumo Hall. When the participants for the UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles match got together, Urano bragged that Nakano could beat Ohka easily. Ohka took offence and challenged Nakano to a match. When it was accepted the two began fighting until Urano kicked Ohka with a Low Blow.

Imanari thanks both Onita and Takagi for making him a pro wrestler, one who will help build the new era of Current Blast death matches!

He wants to break out of his shell and fight under his own will. FUMA was not around to give any comments.
