The Ganbare masked man tryouts are moving on to a second audition after the first failed horribly. Yukihiro Abe is getting a second chance as Ganbare The Akihabara. Joining him is Ganbare The Power, presumably Chikara.

While he enjoyed wrestling, Suzuki feels a stronger desire to work for social services and decided to put his focus on that as his career. Suzuki wants his retirement match to be against Ken Ohka because he is an inspiration to him. There was a time before Suzuki debuted in DNA where he got injured and by coincidence met Ohka in the same hospital. Ohka gave him the following advice: “I do not know how hard I can go, but I will still work hard.” Those words stuck with Suzuki and has motivated him ever since.

206 Fans – No Vacancy

1. 3rd Generation Vs 3rd Generation Vs 2nd Generation! ~I Am The Grandson Panda! I Do Not Need Two Pandas In The Pro Wrestling World~: Yumehito Imanari defeated Chikara and J-Soul Pandita III IV when Imanari pinned Pandita with a Death Penalty (6:47).

5. G-POP! Ganpuro New Generation Tryout!: Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Shota with the Just Facelock (16:36).
6. Bonus Track ~72 Hours Honey TV Special Tag Match~ Youtuber Kusanagi Pro Wrestling Debut Match: Danshoku Dino & Youtuber Kusanagi defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Kusanagi pinned Imanari after the Spike Danshoku Driver (3:38).

The end of the show was interrupted by Danshoku Dino and another person. He came here not out of competition between DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling but to offer them some attention instead. The person with Dino was Kusanagi, a Youtuber who also hosts a show on AbemaTV called 72 Hour Television. He wants to make a worldwide trending video so Dino suggested him to enter a pro wrestling match which is why they are here today. An impromptu match between Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Dino & Kusanagi took place there and then. Kusanagi and his friends recorded the match while he wrestled and he even got the winning pinfall on Imanari after a Spike Danshoku Driver.

The scheduled main event was Shota Vs Shinichiro Tominaga which Tominaga won. He told Shota the reason he won today was because it is Autumn. Tominaga always fights his best during the Autumn. But he wants to fight Shota again in Spring, Summer and Winter too so they can fight during every season. Tominaga then brought up the time Daisuke Sasaki called him an amateur. Tominaga wants Sasaki to answer what is the line that separates an amateur and a professional. He wants Sasaki to go visit the XVideos website and look up the most searched word on that site. It is “Amateur”. If Tominaga is an amateur then he will take the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title from Sasaki and become the strongest amateur! Tominaga will get his title match on 26th November.

The assassin sent by Sasaki to fight Ohka was revealed to be Nobuhiro Shimatani! Even though Sasaki explicitly said in advance that his assassin is not a member of DAMNATION, Shimatani acted like he was one by wearing the DAMNATION shirt with a leather jacket over it. He said Ohka has lost all his money and today he will lose his wrestling life! He attacked Ohka and immediately went for a Cross Facelock. Ohka defended himself then brawled with Shimatani until he finished him off with the Fire Spear. He sent a message to Sasaki afterwards. Shimatani is not the sort of godly assassin that was promised but still the assassin was defeated. That means Ohka deserves another shot at taking the World Jr. Title from him. Ohka also told Shimatani he is doing fine without DAMNATION and he doesn’t need their vindication to be strong. Shimatani shook Ohka’s hand and left the ring.

A wrestler from India named Brian Aki approached the ring during the opening announcements. He introduced himself to Ohka, told him that Ganpuro is very famous in his country and he travelled all the way to Japan so he can wrestle here. Ohka was amazed by this discovery and he added Aki into the Ganbare Tryout match. In the tryout match Ganbare The Shooter forgot to wear his mask so Ganbare The Great covered his face until one was found. Ganbare The Akihabara carried a Comiket paper bag to the ring containing a Black Spider VII mask he wore later on. Ganbare The Robin wrestled in a Minoru Fujita shirt over his usual gear. Robin got the win the a Diving Cross Body onto the other team but it took some time for everybody to stand in the right position. He wouldn’t risk the move until they were close enough for him to do it successfully. When the match was over Ganbare The Great announced the tryout results. Brain Aki failed because he cannot communicate well with the other wrestlers. Akihabara failed because he is a thief. Robin failed for no reason. So the entire tryout was a failure! Robin complained that should have passed because he won the match. He promised to return on his own terms next time.

Sumire Natsu got heckled by both the audience and the wrestlers for wearing heavy make-up on her face for the match. She got the last laugh by pinning HARUKAZE with her feet on the ropes. HARUKAZE demanded a singles match with Natsu and it will take place on 26th November.

There were times in the opening match when J-Soul Pandita III IV wandered away from the ring leaving Chikara and Imanari to fight each other. It eventually wandered back in. Chikara gave it the Saber Chop but Imanari kicked him away and gave Pandita the Death Penalty to steal the win.

Osaka Toshima Citizen Center

1. Fumihiko Uwai Produce Match: Kamui defeated Dai Suzuki with the Swanton Bomb (5:29).
2. Batsuichi-gun Vs Ganpuro-gun: Minoru Fujita & Shoichi Uchida defeated Shuichiro Katsumura & Mizuki Watase when Fujita pinned Watase with a Modified Cradle (14:55).

4. Forgotten K ICE BREAK: Yasu Urano defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with a Cradle (11:30).
5. Special Single Match: Ken Ohka defeated MIYAWAKI with the Fire Spear (21:06).

Ken Ohka’s road to recovery since losing his money and his championship began with a victory over MIYAWAKI. Hs spoke about MIYAWAKI’s debut match that took place in Differ Ariake back in 2002 and how both have progressed over the last 15 years. Ohka then said how hard he works at making Ganbare☆Wrestling succeed while some other chubby men stay at home doing nothing. Both Ganbare The Great and Shoichi Uchida at ringside got mad when they heard this but Ohka told them to use that anger as motivation. Great told Ohka he’ll kill him then left.

The mess made by the Double Sweet Death Match made both Shinichiro Tominaga and Yasu Urano conscious over bits of food flying at the audience while they wrestled each other. So they tried to take it easy at first until the tension between them grew and grew.

The entire venue was filled with the smell of food after the Double Sweet Death Match. The teams of Yumehito Imanari & Sumire Natsu and Shota & HARUKAZE battled it out in a ring filled with snacks and candy. Long marshmallow bars were attached to the ropes like lighttubes and cracker pops were placed on the turnbuckles rigged to explode at a certain point. The ring was a mess by the end of the match. A bell rang again to warn everyone of something. Everyone continued fighting until the crackers all exploded, knocking everyone out.

Minoru Fujita & Shoichi Uchida spent their match finding different ways to misbehave. They both shook Shuichiro Katsumura & Mizuki Watase’s hands then refused to let go. They then complained about how hard it was for them to wrestle today whenever their opponents got the upper hand. It was only when some young fans in the audience started cheering “Batsuichi!” that they became motivated to wrestle. Fujita low blowed Watase and pinned him with a Wrist Clutch Small Package to more chants of “Batsuichi!”

Ganpuro were given a boost by the visit of wrestling promoter Fumihiko Uwai to their show. Uwai congratulated Ohka on bringing Ganpuro this far including a successful show in Korakuen Hall. He is looking forward to seeing what is next for the company. Uwai stuck around to do ring announcing for the Dai Suzuki Vs Kamui match.

Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Tanomusaku Toba, Naoshi Sano & Shinichiro Wakita defeated Ben McCoy, Yanni Gianos & Hollywood GOTA when Toba pinned GOTA with the Buzzsaw Kick (9:53).
2. Ganbare☆Climax – Round 2: GENTARO defeated Takafumi Ito with a High Angle Forward Rotation Cradle (11:02).
3. Ganbare☆Climax – Round 2: KENSO defeated Kendo Kashin by Counout (12:20).
4. Ganbare The Great, Ganbare The Shooter & HARUKAZE defeated Chikara, Yukinori Abe & Yumehiro Imanari when Shooter submitted Imanari with the Ganbare The Expression Cross Armbreaker (10:36).

6. Ganbare☆Climax – Round 2: Dave Crist defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Magdalene (16:11).

Day 2 of the Ganbare☆Climax focused on the quarter finals of the tournament. The main event saw Shinichiro Tominaga and Dave Crist getting the spotlight as the final match in the 2nd round. Tominaga tried playing mind games by daring Crist to grapple with him on the ground. That didn’t work because Crist has MMA experience. Tominaga later tried to convince Crist to take it easy on him because he has a daughter. That also didn’t work because Crist didn’t see the daughter anywhere in the room. Tominaga finally got something going when he convinced the referee to check on Crist’s shoes. The pause in action gave Tominaga the chance to do a Jumping Cutter to Crist while his guard down. Crist kicked out and hit the Square And Compass but Tominaga kicked out too. Crist then hit the Magdalene to eliminate Tominaga from the tournament. Crist brought Shigehiro Irie into the ring to translate his victory speech. He said Tominaga was a terribly strong wrestler. When Crist got on his flight to Japan he was worried he wouldn’t get to fight a good hand like Tominaga. Crist ended the speech by saying “We’re family! We are Ganbare Pro!”

Ken Ohka’s strong run continued with a victory over KAZMA SAKAMOTO. He countered the Michinoku Driver II with a Dragon Suplex then definitively put down his opponent with a Lariat, a Vertical Drop Brainbuster and finally the Fire Spear.

KENSO Vs Kendo Kashin. How those words when spoken aloud by Shota didn’t scare off the audience I will never know. Today Kashin weighed in at 120kg, way up from the 48kg he claimed to be at the day before. Kashin saw that KENSO’s shoulder was taped up and asked if he was allowed to attack it. When KENSO ignored him to try and get the fans to chant his name, Kashin decided that he could target the body part. The fans also chanted for Kashin which made KENSO angry. The two brawled outside and risked getting counted out. KENSO made it back in on time but when Kashin was about to re-enter on the 19th second, Mitsuo Momota came out and pulled Kashin away from the ring. KENSO was declared the winner by countout. Kashin challenged Momota to a 5 Vs 5 match between Ganbare☆Wrestling and NEW to be held at Sumo Hall with Yukinori Matsui as the referee. Matsui wouldn’t agree to it. Kashin then challenged Momota & Chikara to a match tomorrow. Momota accepted. Yumehito Imanari offered to be Kashin’s tag partner for the bout and he accepted him.

GENTARO Vs Takafumi Ito was mostly ground based with GENTARO coming out on top with a Forward Roll counter to Ito’s Cradle pin attempt.

Tomorrow’s semi-finals are Ken Ohka Vs GENTARO and Dave Crist Vs KENSO.

8. Ganbare☆Climax – Round 1: Ken Ohka defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Fire Spear (13:35).

This weekend is a hot one all over Tokyo especially in the ring. Sure there is a gigantic wrestling tournament down the road heading into its final stages but Ganbare☆Wrestling had something to offer too. The first ever Ganbare☆Climax admittedly does not have any prizes for the winner but everybody competing in it wanted to fight to their best abilities.

The main event saw two close friends battling it out for supremacy. Yumehito Imanari’s wrestling gear had a slight upgrade with brand new white boots and shinpads but he’s still wrestling in his denim shorts. Ken Ohka came close to losing when he was put in a Chicken Wing Arm Lock and was warned by the referee that the match could be stopped if he didn’t respond. Ohka was able to crawl to the ropes and break the hold. Ohka ducked a Lariat and threw Imanari with a pair of Dragon Suplexes. After that the Fire Spear ended the match and Ohka was through to the next round.

Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Shinichiro Tominaga was the longest match of the show by just one second, beating out the main event. Tominaga got desperate late in the match when he placed his feet on the ropes for leverage during a School Boy pin. Katsumura lost his temper at Tominaga’s cheating and went straight on the attack. Tominaga used the referee Daisuke Kiso as a shield to stop Katsumura, then he leaped over him for a Frankensteiner to get the pin. Katsumura protested to Kiso but the result stood.

KAZMA SAKAMOTO was a good sport to Tanomusaku Toba after their match. SAKAMOTO took Toba’s best punches and got the win with the Michinoku Driver II. He praised Toba for his performance afterwards.

Chikara was accompanied by his father Mitsuo Momota for his match against Kendo Kashin. Kashin’s weight was announced as 48kg. He also thought he was going to fight Momota instead of Chikara. Kashin continued to glare at Momota throughout the match. He brought in a chair and when the ref’s back was turned, threw it at Momota and blamed him for a phantom chair shot. While the ref argued with Momota, Chikara tried to avoid Kashin’s chair swinging but eventually got caught. Kashin submitted Chikara with a Chicken Wing Arm Lock but refused to let go until Momota stopped him.

KENSO caught Ben McCoy’s Missile Dropkick and turned it into a Leg Lock for the submission victory. KENSO goaded McCoy at the start by asking for a handshake and then cheap shotting him. He later attacked him with a chair outside the ring.

Yukihiro Abe was having a bad weekend. Not only was he eliminated in the first round by Dave Crist but he had to miss this year’s Comiket to compete in the tournament. Crist countered Abe’s Sister Abigail into the Square And Compass to win.

Takafumi Ito was displeased to be paired with Hollywood GOTA in the first round. This sloppy wrestler isn’t going to provide a challenge for him. He was proven right when GOTA slipped off the top rope. Ito quickly applied a Sleeper Hold and the referee stopped the match for GOTA’s safety. Ito goes through.

GENTARO and Shinichiro Wakita kicked off the tournament with a respectful back and forth match. GENTARO encouraged Wakita to fight him with all he’s got but the skill gap between them was clear to see. GENTARO blocked a Brainbuster and finished with a German Suplex to advance.

Tormorrow’s 2nd Round matches are Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Dave Crist, KENSO Vs Kendo Kashin, KAZMA SAKAMOTO Vs Ken Ohka and Takafumi Ito Vs GENTARO.

1. OVER THE TOP: Yumehito Imanari & Bambi defeated Yukihiro Abe & Mitomi Masayuki when Imanari pinned Masayuki with the Chubby Knee (11:25).
2. Ai Shimizu Ganbare☆Wrestling Third Trial – 2nd Round: Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Ai Shimizu with a Reverse Splash Double Knee Drop (10:53).
3. Revenge Match: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with an Inverted Crab Hold (7:27).
4. Recovery And Memory Of K: Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi defeated Hi69 & Shinichiro Tominaga when Oishi pinned Tominaga after the Cactus Flower (13:03).
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.

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.
