1. There Is Not Enough Fat! I Do Not Want Such A Thing! Ganpro International No Diet Day Memorial Special Match!: Moeka Haruhi Vs Manami Kanda ended in a No Contest when Imanari ruled that the wrestlers were underweight (5:37) (Special Referee: Yumehito Imanari)
1a. Special Match: Manami Kanda defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Hamburger Splash (2:55) (Special Referee: Moeka Haruhi).
2. Mr. Showtime Vs Real Tiger Mask!!: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Shota with the Squeezing Sleeper Hold (10:41).
3. Ganbare☆Wrestling’s Great Crazy Party!!: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Iwasaki pinned Imanari with a Right High Kick (12:49).

Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki are ready to take the next step as a team and go after a championship. The one they have in mind is the GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Titles in NOAH! Ken Ohka encouraged them to do it because Ganbare☆Wrestling wants to give freedom to its wrestlers to do whatever they want. The proof of that is some of the other wrestlers walked into the room eating hamburgers while Ohka was giving his show closing speech.

Shota shook Shuichiro Katsumura’s hand after their match. He then gave Katsumura a School Boy and counted to three so he could walk off having felt some sort of victory over him today.

Manami Kanda is currently on a diet and has lost 15kg so far. Yumehito Imanari was so worried by the weight loss that he brought in burgers for both her and Moeka Haruhi to eat. He got even more annoyed when he noticed how much faster Kanda moved. She even performed La Magistral Cradle and would have won if Imanari didn’t cancel the match there and then. Imanari then challenged Kanda to a match and mocked her attacks for being too light like her. Haruhi stood up for Kanda and helped her beat up Imanari. Kanda then took a bite out of the burger and climbed the window sill. She shouted “Hamburger Splash” and jumped onto Imanari to pin him for the three count.

4. THE ROOT OF WRESTLING: Hideki Suzuki defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Double Arm Suplex (11:37).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Sento Minzoku Singles Series: Ryuichi Sekine, Daiki Shimomura & Minoru Fujita (3) defeated Ken Ohka, Keisuke Ishii & Shota (2).
5a. Shota eliminated Daiki Shimomura with a Casadora (5:41).
5b. Minoru Fujita eliminated Shota with the SAYONARA (3:18).
5c. Minoru Fujita eliminated Keisuke Ishii by Ring Out (11:50).
5d. Ken Ohka eliminated Minoru Fujita by Ring Out (1:15).
5e. Ryuichi Sekine eliminated Ken Ohka with the Dragon Kick (11:26).

The first meeting between Ganbare☆Wrestling and Sento Minzoku took place as a singles Gauntlet match with Ring Out rules in effect until the final match. Things started off well for Ganpro when Shota pinned Daiki Shimomura. Sento Minzoku’s newest member Minoru Fujita turned the tables by beating Shota and then Keisuke Ishii. When Ken Ohka stepped into the ring to fight him, Fujita instead decided to eliminate himself. Ryuichi Sekine then attacked Ohka from behind to begin the final round of the match. Sekine bloodied Ohka’s forehead outside the ring and he blocked the Fire Spear with a Kneelift inside the ring. Sekine wrapped his tail around his leg and hit Ohka with the Dragon Kick. The extra power behind the move got Sekine and Sento Minzoku the victory, although Ohka did kick out right as the ref counted three.

The disputed finish led to a brawl between the two sides. During Sekine’s attempts to tell everyone it was a three count, Shimomura grabbed the microphone off him and told Ishii he was coming after him. He’s ready for a fight anytime, anywhere. Fujita then bragged about being back in the main story of Ganpro. He both won and lost his matches today, showing that this invasion isn’t as black and white as it seems. His purpose in the unit is to make everything good in both BASARA and Ganpro. Ohka said his side lost today but losing is never the end when it comes to wrestling. Life goes on and Ohka still has fight in him to have another match. He told everyone that both Ganpro and BASARA will be holding shows in Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 17th November. Ohka wants singles matches against Sekine on one show and Fujita on the other. They both accepted. Sekine promised to be in perfect condition while Fujita told Ohka to borrow the power of B’z and “BAD COMMUNICATION” when they face off again.

Hideki Suzuki isn’t sure if Kouki Iwasaki has earned his respect yet, but Suzuki never wanted to give him that in the first place. Suzuki would rather have Iwasaki show no respect and come at him with a killer instinct. That is how Suzuki does it and he wants his opponents to do that too. With that said he did shake Iwasaki’s hand after the match.

The match between Shigehiro Irie and Chikara featured unexpected interference from Shin Mokujin Ken, Mizuki Watase and Keisuke Ishii. Both Watase and Ishii launched an attack train on Irie as a good gestured farewell. They encouraged the referee Daisuke Kiso to join in but Irie caught him. He threatened to give Kiso the Black Hole Slam but instead gently put him down and gave him a hug. Irie went on to beat Chikara and they shook with their left hands. Irie left the ring with a big smile on his face.

Both teams in the women’s match wanted to be called Team HARUKAZE. At the beginning of the show Moeka Haruhi announced she is joining Ganpro to support the Ganbare☆Joshi division in HARUKAZE’s absence.

Hiroshi Yamato & Yumehito Imanari brought radishes to the ring and used them as weapons on their opponents. Shuichiro Katsumura & Nobuhiro Tsurumaki turned the radishes against the team and won the match.

5. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Throwaway Tiger Suplex (16:04).
*V5 for Keisuke Ishii.

Keisuke Ishii called Yumehito Imanari a suitable challenger and someone he hopes to wrestle again someday. But for now Ishii is looking for his next opponent to defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title against. Ishii wants the new and improved Ken Ohka! There’s a reason for this. Ishii wants to help Ganbare☆Wrestling compete against BASARA and he is offering to side with them! Ohka accepted his offer and said he’s been working hard at changing himself for the last month. He told Imanari that the Imanari Revolution is not over yet. It is now united with Ohka as they go towards Korakeun Hall this December! It’s not just the two of them either. The rest of the Ganpro roster joined them in the ring to rally together.

It’s been a big couple of weeks for Kouki Iwasaki. After joining Ganpro he also went over to Real Japan and won the UWA Asia Pacific Heavyweight Title from Rey Angel. Now today he was taking on Shuichiro Katsumura. Although he lost by ref stoppage, Iwasaki seems to have won Katsumura’s respect. Katsumura asked Iwasaki to team up together in other places to show more people the strength of Ganpro. He offered a handshake but Iwasaki kicked it away and left the ring.

The new and improved Ken Ohka now wears red trunks and kneepads. His return to Ganpro was a successful one, defeating Nobuhiro Tsurumaki with a Vertical Drop Brainbuster. His victory was cut short when Ryuichi Sekine from BASARA entered the ring. He had a monkey tail attached to him and introduced himself as a member of a unit called Sento Minzoku. He congratulated Ohka but when they shook hands he attacked Ohka with the Kamikaze! Sekine challenged Ohka to a Ganpro Vs Sento Minzoku match at the 11th October Ganpro show in Shin-Kiba.

5. This Is Ganbare☆Wrestling! ~Charisma Vs Revolutionary~: Ken Ohka Vs Yumehito Imanari ended in a No Contest when Survival Tobita and Shin Mokujin Ken interfered. (13:30).
5a. Emergency Special Match: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari defeated Survival Tobita & Shin Mokujin Ken by Disqualification when Ken attacked the referee (2:33).

The battle for Ganbare☆Wrestling went in a bizarre direction when the main event was interrupted by Survival Tobita and a new version of one of his most infamous monster wrestlers Shin Mokujin Ken (I think the original was killed by Mecha Mummy in Chikara Pro)! Tobita gave Ken Ohka a Piledriver while Ken attacked Yumehito Imanari. Ohka immediately changed the main event into a tag team match but that was thrown out when Ken attacked the referee. Tobita told Ohka he wasn’t working hard enough. Tobita is crazier than Ohka is and to prove it he captured Mokujin Ken and brought him to Ganpro to cause some chaos! Ohka called for a truce with Imanari so they can fight back together. They decided that Ohka will face Tobita and Imanari will fight Ken in the first round of the Ganbare☆Climax on 11th August! Imanari said that the Imanari Revolution is no joke. His dream is to lead Ganpro back to Korakuen Hall!

Ayumu Honda used the referee as a shield to block Chikara and leave him open for the Cross Armbreaker. After the match Keisuke Ishii announced he will defend the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title against Honda on 11th August. Honda wanted to change the date because he is already booked for a K-DOJO show in Chiba that day. Ishii convinced Honda to take the match because the Ganpro show in Narimasu takes place early in the afternoon while the K-DOJO show will be at night.

Shuichiro Katsumura & Facade are both ninjas so they made a good team today. They both did ninja poses to celebrate their win.

HARUKAZE wanted a rematch with Moeka Haruhi on 11th August but there is not enough room on the card to make it happen. Ohka instead offered to enter both HARUKAZE and Haruhi into the Battle Royal to determine who faces the Independent World Jr. Champion the next day. Both accepted.

The Uguisudani Crossface used by Shinichiro Tominaga is also known as the Buffalo Sleeper.

The eight participants for the 2018 Ganbare☆Climax are Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari, Shinichiro Tominaga, Shota, Survival Tobita, Shin Makujin Ken, Mitsuo Momota and Yuu Yamagata.

*V2 for Keisuke Ishii.

From the bottom of his heart, Keisuke Ishii thanked Shuichiro Katsumura for their match today. They hugged and Katsumura left the ring so Ishii could find out who his next challenger would be. Ken Ohka made his way down to the ring but was overtaken by Ayumu Honda from K-DOJO. Honda pointed at the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title belt, shook Ishii’s hand and left the ring. Ishii didn’t take the hint and asked who his next challenger is. Ohka tried to enter the ring again but Honda beat him to it once more and this time gave Ishii a Codebreaker. He then grabbed Ishii’s hand and shook it again before leaving. When Ishii regained consciousness he once again asked who his challenger is. Ohka gave up and told him it was Honda. Ishii agreed to it. He also told Ohka that he wants to defend the title on both days of the Ganbare☆Climax in August because Ishii wants the belt to shine.

The Imanari Revolution is still on a roll with Yumehito Imanari picking up another win. Imanari told Ohka afterwards that he cannot wait any longer for them to finally have their singles match so they should do it on the 14th July show! Ohka accepted the challenge. Later at the end of the show Imanari interrupted Ohka’s closing speech and took it over.

All low blows were legal in the Shinichiro Tominaga Vs Mineo Fujita match. Tominaga eventually had enough and told Fujita that he wants to get married and have children some day. When the Low Blows stopped, Fujita was able to beat Tominaga with the Swanton Bomb.

Ohka told HARUKAZE that her next match in July will be against Moeka Haruhi. She is formerly from WAVE and is now a freelancer.

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.
