7. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Keisuke Ishii with the Beast Bomber (18:25).
*V1 for Shigehiro Irie.

Years of friendship were cast aside all in the name of glory as Shigehiro Irie defended the KO-D Openweight Title against Keisuke Ishii. Both dealt big damage early with Ishii giving Irie a Neckbreaker onto the apron and later Irie Power Bombed Ishii onto the same spot. Irie took the Kneel Kick and kicked out of an Exploder Suplex. He gained control of the match with an Avalanche Death Valley Driver and got a nearfall with the Cannonball Drop. Ishii had a glimmer of hope left with a Hurricanrana but Irie hit back with the Beast Bomber to win. Irie wanted to shake Ishii’s hand after the match but Ishii refused. The next KO-D Title defence will take place on 24th June. The challenger will be determined on 29th May at the return of the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble! The winner of the match gets the 29/5 title shot but there will also be other Right To Challenge prizes on the line too. Irie said he will defend the title anytime, he doesn’t care where or against who. His goal as champion is to defend the KO-D Title around the world in order to create a new scenery for DDT.

A new costume marked Soma Takao’s turn to DAMNATION complete. More than that, constant cheating helped him beat HARASHIMA. A distraction from Tetsuya Endo allowed Takao to Low Blow his opponent. Takao was about to be pinned with a Hurricane Driver when Daisuke Sasaki pulled the referee away. A turnbuckle pad was removed and HARASHIMA collided with the exposed metal. Takao then struck him with a chair and pinned him with the Gin And Tonic.

When the match was over, Sasaki told everyone that Takao achieved a perfect victory over HARASHIMA. Takao didn’t respond and stayed quiet. Sasaki then mockingly asked HARASHIMA to apologise to his fans for losing. Endo pretended to speak for him. All of DAMNATION ganged up on HARASHIMA until suddenly Shuten-dōji came to the rescue! They chased DAMNATION out of the ring and each of them shook HARASHIMA’s hand. Is this the start of a new alliance against DAMNATION?

Makoto Oishi wasn’t joking when he said he wanted a new generation of DDT wrestlers to replace the current generation. He made Nobuhiro Shimatani dress up like Danshoku Dieno, Daiki Shimomura dress up like Antonio Honda and Yuki Iino dress up like Super Sasadango Machine. They weren’t quite perfect copies. Iino had a PowerPoem to read instead of a PowerPoint presentation. However he wanted to review it by himself so he didn’t get involved in the match until late into it when Oishi ordered him to help. Iino entered the ring and Speared Oishi by accident. Dieno then pinned Oishi with the Gay-do Clutch. After the match Honda said his team were still mentally and physically energetic even though they were all over forty. Honda fainted from exhaustion before he could finish his sentence. Everyone else congratulated Dieno for turning 41 two days earlier.

Konosuke Takeshita pulled out the Turnbuckle Brainbuster to beat Shunma Katsumata. He wanted this match to motivate Katsumata. Part of that is to make Katsumata face his criticisms. He is a pro wrestler and pro wrestlers should not have to worry about criticism according to Takeshita. Katsumata also learned more about himself. He always pretended to be a nice little boy and he never knew what he was fighting for. Now he understands what to do and he hopes not to disappoint the rest of ALL OUT from now on.

Kicks from Kota Umeda and Lariats from Kazuzada Higuchi took such a toll on each other that both were left down for the count at the same time, resulting in a draw. Higuchi offered a handshake afterwards but Umeda kicked his hand away.

A left foot injury took Yuki Ueno out of the 4 Way Tag Match. DDT was still searching for a replacement when they found Shota working in the venue as part of the staff. Shota declined at first but took the spot when the audience chanted his name. He ended up losing the match to DAMNATION.

All three of the Dragon wrestlers unmasked themselves and successfully framed KUDO to win the match by DQ. Hiratimo Dragon is being coy about how many -timo Dragon wrestlers there are. Maybe there are more, maybe there aren’t.

Tomomitsu Matsunaga beat Rekka again. This time he blocked a cradle pin and pushed all his weight down on Rekka to get the three count.

This year’s Beer Garden week will be held in Shinjuku FACE from 30th July to 5th August. Tokyo Joshi Pro and BASARA will have their own produce days during the series. Also the King Of DDT 1st Round will be held on 31st July as part of the festivities. This year’s tournament is the largest ever with 32 wrestlers competing for a 1,000,000 yen prize.

The new DDT mascot that was introduced back in April has been named Doradori-kun.

5. Attitude Of The Imanari Revolution: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Yumehito Imanari with a Sliding Kick (18:23).

The Imanari Revolution continued with a second straight main event singles match for Yumehito Imanari. However this match ended in defeat to Shuichiro Tominaga. Imanari did his best though and did not tap out to the Ninja Choke. Tominaga had to hit him with a Sliding Kick to get the win. He told Imanari after the match that he has gotten stronger. He thought the Imanari Revolution was some kind of joke that went over his head but now he realises that it is a genuine attempt by Imanari to improve. He thanked him for the match and said Imanari is welcome to come back to his dojo anytime.

The closing speeches were cut off when Keisuke Ishii approached Katsumura. Ishii wanted to nominate him as the next challenger for his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title! Katsumura accepted the offer but refused to shake Ishii’s hand. He knows that Ishii is in tomorrow’s KO-D Openweight Title match in DDT. He told him to bring that belt with him too if he wins it.

Ken Ohka announced the Ganbare☆Climax tournament will return for its second year in August. This time however the tournament will run for two shows instead of three. The shows will be held on the 11th and 12th August.

Both Imanari and Shota showed each other support for their matches at the start of the show.

Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Attitude Of The Imanari Revolution: Yumehito Imanari Vs Shuichiro Katsumura
2. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Shota

On 1st May Shota signed a full time contract with Ganbare☆Wrestling. To mark the occasion he challenged Keisuke Ishii for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Shota was working with Guts World then went on an excursion to America after the company closed in April. Ohka had always wanted Shota to join Ganpro proper and approached him to make it happen when Shota no longer had a home promotion.

Yumehito Imanari has started the Imanari Revolution so he can be recognised as a main eventer. His campaign began successfully when he defeated Takeshi Okada in the main event of last month’s show. Now he faces Shuichiro Katsumura, the leader of Katsumura-gun and also the person who previously helped train him to fight Ganpro’s enemies. Imanari hopes that this match will be the main event.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “BODY FEELS EXIT 2018”, 11/02/2018
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
134 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Shuhei Washida Debut 2nd Round: Katsumi Oribe defeated Shuhei Washida with the Katsumiga (6:51).
2. Recurrence Of Ihashi! Show Your Old Ally, Ganbare Soul: Yukihiro Abe defeated Gota Ihashi with the Kamigoe (7:05).

5. Overall War! Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Katsumura-gun: Shuichiro Katsumura & Black Ribera defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ribera pinned Imanari with the OSCURO (19:58).

The addition of Black Ribera to Katsumura-gun was too much for Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to handle. The small high flyer countered a Super Power Bomb into a Hurricanrana. Shuichiro Katsumura choked out Ohka with the Ninja Choke then joined Ribera in kicking lumps out of Imanari. There was a glimpse of hope for Imanari when he hit a Double Lariat but his momentum was killed by a Fisherman Buster by Katsumura. Ribera then finished him off with the OSCURO Frog Splash. Katsumura told the Ganpuro team that no matter how many times they fight, he will never lose to them. Ribera decided that now was the time for him to introduce himself to everyone although he kept his nationality a secret. He said the Ganpuro fans are pretty good because they are lively even when they have to watch wrestlers like Ohka, Imanari and Shuhei Washida. Tension rose between the two sides which caused Katsumura-gun to leave. Washida begged Ohka to let him fight them. Ohka was touched to see the trainee has his back so he came up with a match. On 11th March in Osaka Ohka, Imanari & Washida will take on Katsumura-gun! Ohka said it has been five years since Ganbare☆Wrestling was created. Since then he has gained two families, his real one and his Ganpuro one. He doesn’t know if they can beat Katsumura-gun but they will fight them with all that they have.

Shinichiro Tominaga used some creative ideas to try and beat the legendary MEN’S Teioh. He used the referee twice to his advantage. The first time was to escape from the Spinning Toe Hold and the second time was Tominaga leap frogging over the ref to Dropkick an unsuspecting Teioh. Tominaga later countered the Miracle Ecstasy into a Hurricanrana but only got a nearfall out of it. Teioh succeeded hitting his move the second time and he made Tominaga submit to the Spinning Toe Hold. Tominaga called Teioh a god of Student Pro Wrestling but Teioh stopped him. Teioh said he isn’t a god although he did dye his hair red today to resemble a Super Saiyan God. He told Tominaga that pro wrestling isn’t just limited to 1 Vs 1. Next time they should bring together their Student Wrestling friends for another match. His university club was No. 1 but he’s welcome to take on any challengers to that claim. Tell him the place and he will be there along with Onryo! Teioh left to UWF chants but this UWF is referring to his Kanto Student Pro Wrestling club.

Shota was blinded and mistook HARUKAZE for one of his opponents. He gave her a Brainbuster and Samara followed up with a Blackout style Leg Drop called the Snake Charmer on HARUKAZE to get the pin. Samara & Brian Aki then taunted their opponents and told them to “Suck it!”

Gota Ihashi lost when he missed the Moonsault. Yukihiro Abe then used the Kamigoe to pin him. Ihashi bowed to the audience after the match.

Shuhei Washida refused to shake hands with Katsumi Oribe after their match.

At the end of the show Ken Ohka told the audience his e-mail address if they ever need consulting from him. Doesn’t matter what hardships they have, from debt to divorce he wants to give everyone fatherly advice. He will be everyone’s Ganbare☆Dad!

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title – Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs DAMNATION Full Battle PART 3 ~Bet On All~: Ken Ohka defeated Daisuke Sasaki (c) with the Fire Spear (23:48).
*Daisuke Sasaki fails in V6. Ken Ohka becomes the 26th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion!

At the beginning of today’s show, Ken Ohka gave a speech about how you are the leading role in the story of your life. Every match on the card featured wrestlers who are the protagonists of their own stories. For Ohka his story was putting everything on the line. His company, his family, his support. All to win back everything Daisuke Sasaki took from him including the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. A few days earlier there was a chance that Ohka was going to lose this opportunity because Sasaki defended the title against TAKA Michinoku in K-DOJO. But Sasaki won that match and brought the belt back to Ganbare☆Wrestling for another title defence. That’s not all, this time Sasaki had the rest of DAMNATION backing him up. The unit distracted the referee so Sasaki could attack Ohka with a chair at ringside. Sasaki also took off one of the turnbuckle covers so he could throw Ohka into the exposed parts of the corner. Ohka kicked out of the Diving Hitman Elbow Drop and fired back with a Headbutt. He then countered the Cross Facelock into a Dragon Suplex. Sasaki blocked the Fire Spear but Ohka recovered and gave him a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka then hit the Fire Spear properly and that was enough to win the championship! Now everything Sasaki won from Ohka must be returned. Ohka told Sasaki he doesn’t care what he called him in the past. If Ohka is an amateur then he is okay with being called that. Instead what he cherishes most are the people most important to him like his family and everyone in Ganpuro. He invited the Ganpuro roster into the ring to celebrate defending the company from DAMNATION.

The rest of the DAMNATION matches didn’t go so well for Ganpuro. Shinichiro Tominaga lost to Tetsuya Endo in the battle of the high flyers. Tominaga did kick out of the Swivel Torture Rack Bomb. Endo had to use the Shooting Star Press to put him away.

Back in February of this year a woman named Mao Hoshino participated in a Ganpuro tryout and passed the audition. However her plans to become a pro wrestler were dashed when her parents objected to her choice of career. Not wanting to put all of her training to waste, it was decided that Hoshino would get to wrestle once before she moves on with her life. Her debut and retirement match was against her mentor Cherry. Hoshino hit a Perfect Plex for a nearfall but her second attempt at the move was countered. From there Cherry took control and won with the Cherryton Bomb. Cherry praised Hoshino for giving a strong performance and it is unfortunate that she isn’t able to continue. She wished Hoshino the best on her journey to discover herself. Ohka also said his piece and was happy to see how far Hoshino advanced with just a few months of training. She only wrestled once but Mao Hoshino will always be a member of Ganbare☆Wrestling. Hoshino thanked everyone for the opportunity and was given the 10 bell salute. The announcer introduced her as “a professional wrestler for 9 minutes and 49 seconds.”

The first Ganpuro Vs DAMNATION match of the show was Shota & Yumehito Imanari taking on the heavyweights Shuji Ishikawa & Mad Paulie. The Ganpuro team ambushed DAMNATION as they entered the ring but were easily swept aside. From there the home side fought an uphill battle. Shota & Imanari were able to take Ishikawa down with a Double Brainbuster. A Frog Splash followed by a Running Low Kick got them a nearfall. Ishikawa then cut them off with a Lariat and Mad Paulie came in to do a Double Choke Slam. Ishikawa grabbed Imanari by the hair and smashed him with Elbow Strikes before finishing him off with the Running Knee Lift.

HARUKAZE has finally gotten her win over Sumire Natsu and also her first win in Ganpuro! She focused on targeting Natsu’s arm, capturing her in Cross Armbreakers until she was in the position to reach back and grab Natsu’s other arm. The double Armbar is called Haru Ichiban and it was enough to make Natsu submit. HARUKAZE celebrated by calling herself the ace of Ganbare☆Joshi. She also thanked Natsu because their matches together helped to make her a stronger wrestler. She stuck her hand out but Natsu refused to shake it. She chose to raise HARUKAZE’s hand instead.

For the 3 Way Match, Shuichiro Katsumura came out wearing his Ganbare The Shooter mask. When the match began he unmasked, left the ring and found a chair to sit on while Yukihiro Abe and Chikara wrestled each other. He eventually got properly involved with the match and won it by choking out Abe with the Ninja Choke.

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Cross Facelock (18:31).
*V4 for Daisuke Sasaki.

The self-proclaimed “Best And Strongest Amateur” stepped up to face Daisuke Sasaki for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. There was a promise by Sasaki to fight a clean fight but he soon broke it by throwing a chair at Shinichiro Tominaga. Sasaki later kicked Tominaga into the referee. Sasaki went far enough to attempt the Vietnam Driver II onto the ref but Tominaga rescued him. From there Tominaga fought fire with fire and threw the ref at Sasaki then gave Sasaki a Hurricanrana after the distraction. Sasaki applied the Cross Facelock but Tominaga got out of the move by biting Sasaki’s wrist. He later countered the Crossover Facelock with the Kido Clutch for a nearfall. Sasaki hit his flash Hurricanrana for another nearfall but Tominaga broke out an Overhead Kick afterwards. Sasaki locked on the Cross Facelock one more time and got Tominaga to tap out.

Sasaki taunted Tominaga after the match. He knows Tominaga wants him to say he did well but an amateur is an amateur. Is Tominaga still a salaryman away from wrestling? Then he should quit and restart his wrestling training from scratch as a trainee. Sasaki then complained he came all the way from Yamagata to wrestle in Ganbare☆Wrestling, an organisation full of amateurs. Ken Ohka heard Sasaki and stormed out to the ring demanding a title match. Sasaki doesn’t want it nor does he ever want to wrestle in Ganpuro again. Ohka then pulled out Sumire Natsu’s deposit book and offered to put it on the line. Sasaki threw it away and said he doesn’t wrestle for money. The crowd jeered Sasaki for the obvious lie. Sasaki finally broke and accepted Ohka’s challenge but on one condition. If Sasaki wins he takes the most important thing in Ohka’s life other than his family (Sasaki hates kids). When he wins he takes over Ganbare☆Wrestling! And to make sure the debt will be paid Sasaki will be bringing DAMNATION with him to the match on 20th December. Ohka accepted and has the rest of Ganpuro supporting him. Yumehito Imanari even did his own version of DAMNATION’s catchphrase. “We will not flock! We will not flirt! We want to get married! Ganbare☆Wrestling will never be defeated!”

Ken Ohka & “brother” YASSHI teamed up to celebrate Ohka’s 16th anniversary in wrestling. YASSHI gave himself and Ohka a big introduction ending with a shout of “Toryumon” as the match against Shota & Yumehito Imanari began. Ohka was in danger when Shota gave him the Frog Splash and then followed up with a Tope Con Hilo to YASSHI. But when Tominaga took over, Ohka recovered and hit two Fire Spears to win the match.

The rematch between HARUKAZE and Sumire Natsu was meant to be the last meeting between the two but there was another dodgy finish here. Natsu again used the ropes for leverage when she pinned HARUKAZE but this time the referee caught her cheating. When the two argued with each other HARUKAZE tried to grab Natsu. Natsu avoided her and went for a Big Boot but HARUKAZE ducked and the referee took the kick. HARUKAZE hit Natsu with the Fire Spear but couldn’t get the pin because the referee was knocked down. When the ref got up Natsu recovered and hit the Big Boot on HARUKAZE. She did a Cutie Special and a Shining Wizard then finally got the win with the Yoran. Ken Ohka tried to protest the result but realised that HARUKAZE and Natsu had already agreed to make this their last singles match against each other. Ohka begged Natsu to have one more rematch with HARUKAZE. Natsu would only agree to it if Ohka pays for her bullet train ticket from Osaka to Tokyo. She knows Ohka has saved up some cash since he lost his money to Sasaki, Also if Natsu win then she will replace HARUKAZE as the regular female wrestler for Ganpuro. Ohka hesitated but agreed to make the match for 20th December.

“Kotori” was given a special Rumble match as a gift before she retires from pro wrestling on 21st December. She and J-Soul Pandita III IV were the first two entries in the match. “Kotori” challenged Pandita to a game of sumo until the creature lost its temper. The evil Dr. Kiriko was the next entrant and he scared off “Kotori”. Yumehito Imanari, Shota and Ken Ohka rounded out the remaining entries. Ohka was eliminated immediately, getting thrown out while he was in the middle of his entrance. Daisuke Kiso got involved in one of the multi-man spots and Lariated Shota to eliminate him from the match. Imanari asked “Kotori” why she was retiring but he was so tired that he was easily Clotheslined out of the ring by her. “Kotori” continued her elimination streak and pinned Kiriko and then Pandita to win the Rumble. “Kotori” shook hands with Ohka after the match and then flipped him over with a Shoulder Toss. That is her farewell from Ganpuro.

The second Ganbare The Tryout was almost as big of a mess as the first one. Ganbare The Akihabara came out without a mask and was more interested in reading manga. Ganbare The Shooter took off his own mask and offered it to Akihbara but was told to put it back on. Ganbare The Power wouldn’t stop shouting “Power!” and generally ignored everyone else’s shenanigans. He hit the other three wrestlers with Saber Chops, some intentional and some not. He dove on top of all three of them to get the three count. Power asked Ganbare The Great if winning the match meant he passed the audition. Great said “Of course not!” and rejected Power. Akihabara failed because he wouldn’t wear his mask and Shooter failed too. Shooter took off his mask in response to the news. Great then admitted that he himself also failed. He unmasked and threw the mask into the air to end the audition.

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.
