*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 Sakurai… THE 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.
