3. New Spring Special Mixed Tag Match ~ Ganpuro Vs Last Jedi: Chikara & Kaho Kobayashi defeated Shinichiro Tominaga & HARUKAZE when Kobayashi pinned HARUKAZE with a Cradle (8:29).

5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Katsumura-gun: Shuichiro Katsumura & Takeshi Okada defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Okada submitted Imanari with the Shivering Armlock (18:56).

Shuichiro Katsumura has been demanding Ganbare☆Wrestling to put him into a real fight so Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari tried to give him what he wanted. Unfortunately for them, Katsumura & Takeshi Okada were far too much for them to handle. Katsumura caught Ohka in a Sleeper Hold while Okada bombarded Imanari with German Suplexes until he tapped him out to an Armlock. Katsumura told Ohka afterwards that he is different from the bad guys Ohka had fought in the past. The strength Katsumura has is real strength. Imanari responded that he will continue to fight until he wins. He will even train at Katsumura’s gym if he has to! Imanari challenged Katsumura & Okada to a rematch on 11th February but Okada is already booked on a FREEDOMS show that day. They agreed to a match on 11th March instead. But Katsumura does have a partner for 11th February. Out came a mysterious wrestler wearing a Tiger Mask. He attacked Ohka and Imanari with Thrust Kicks and Frog Splashes. Katsumura told Ohka to do his best next month then left with the mystery Tiger Mask.

They weren’t kidding when Chikara & Kaho Kobayashi were being advertised as the Last Jedi team. Both of them came out wearing robes and carrying lightsabers. Kobayashi was also wearing a Darth Vader helmet and a chestpiece that was handmade by her parents. They used the Force to mixed results. Sometimes Shinichiro Tominaga & HARUKAZE were knocked back and other times they just stood there as if nothing happened. Kobayashi also told HARUKAZE she was her father. The mind games worked because HARUKAZE was hesitant to attack her from that point on. That allowed Kobayashi to Cradle HARUKAZE for the three count.

Yukihiro Abe was originally supposed to fight Gota Ihashi but Ihashi pulled out of the show earlier in the week after some negative comments by Riki Choshu gave him an identity crisis. Abe’s new opponent was Space Galaxy Warrior Andros and the spaceman had a secret to tell. Yukihiro Abe is not Abe’s real name. His real name is Cosmic Galactic Warrior ABE! Abe told Andros to knock it off because this wasn’t a SECRET BASE show. Abe beat Andros with a Half Nelson Chicken Wing submission hold. After the match Andros told ABE that Earth has been protected and they would meet again at SECRET BASE tomorrow. Abe accepted the challenge.

The debuting Shuhei Washida took on Ken Ohka for his first pro wrestling match. Washida passed the Ganpuro audition back in February last year and has been training ever since. He is going through the black trunks treatment with no music or fancy entrance for when he climbed into the ring. Ohka had control for most of the match but Washida showed some fire when he struck Ohka with a series of Middle Kicks. Ohka cut him off with a Brainbuster and made him tap to a Half Crab. Washida got chants from the audience afterwards. In his backstage interview, Washida said he became a pro wrestler so he could have pride and confidence in himself while becoming stronger.

Some matches for Ganpuro’s upcoming shows were announced during the opening messages. Shinichiro Tominaga Vs MEN’S Teioh will take place on 11th February and HARUKAZE Vs Miyako Matsumoto will happen on 11th March in Osaka. Also on the Osaka show is Ken Ohka Vs Magnitude Kishiwada! Ohka thinks Osaka is a city that is vital for Ganpuro’s growth so he must beat one of Osaka’s strongest to claim the city.

News is coming in that Atsushi Maruyama is joining All Japan as a full time wrestler. Does this mean the end of the Reversal Pro Wrestling trials? You can’t have these kind of trials without a prosecutor, can you?

Shuhei Washida is one of the auditions that passed the Ganbare Tryouts held back in February last year. The only information I have for now is he was 25 years old at the time of the tryout.

For the 3rd year in a row Ganbare☆Wrestling was part of the RIZIN Martial Arts Expo in Saitama Super Arena’s Community Hub. Ken Ohka told the crowd he was delighted for the opportunity to continue appearing at this annual event. However the mood took a turn after the main event when Shuichiro Katsumura entered the ring to confront Ohka. Katsumura demanded a real fight. He doesn’t want to wrestle some mysterious wrestler from India or Ultraman Robin, he wants a real fight! Ohka told Katsumura to prove it on Ganbare’s next show in January. Shota defended Ganbare’s recent choice of opponents for Katsumura, pointing out that many of the big wrestling companies cherish the Indian market because there are 1.5 billion people in India. One of the companies even had an Indian wrestler win their championship this year!

Kouki Iwasaki had to pull out of the show because of the flu. Daiki Shimomura took his place in Match #2.

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 Shuichiro Katsumura with the Crossover Facelock (14:59).
*V1 for Daisuke Sasaki.
6. Danshoku Dino & Keisuke Ishii defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Akito when Dino pinned Takeshita with the Gaydo Clutch (12:40).

Danshoku Dino grabbed on to the referee to block Konosuke Takeshita from doing the German Suplex. With the ref pulled aside, Dino gave Takeshita a Low Blow then put him in the Gaydo Clutch for the three count. Dino grabbed the ropes during the clutch to get extra leverage on the pin and wasn’t caught. Dino warned Takeshita that he is stronger than Takeshita thinks. Takeshita is younger but Dino has more confidence. Dino’s greatest strength is he always believes in himself. No matter what people tell him, they can never shake his core. As the producer, Dino’s goal is to make anything happen in DDT and one example is a chubby 40 year old like himself beating the young and strong KO-D Openweight Champion at Korakuen Hall on 22nd October. Dino has the seven coloured Gaydo Clutch in his arsenal, one for each colour of the rainbow. Takeshita learned one of the colours today, Dino looks forward to showing him the other six later this month.

Poor Daisuke Kiso took a few lumps in the Independent World Jr. Title match and he was just the referee! He took a kick from Shuichiro Katsumura by mistake then while he was down Daisuke Sasaki picked him up and dropped him with a Michinoku Driver for no reason. Sasaki hit Katsumura with a Spear and went for the pin but there was no count until Yukinori Matsui ran into the ring. Katsumura kicked out and put Sasaki into a Cross Armbreaker but Sasaki eventually countered it into the Crossover Facelock to make him submit. Sasaki told Katsumura afterwards that this is pro wresting. It has nothing to do with amateurs so he should study the sport more before he ever challenges him again. Sasaki demanded Ken Ohka to hand over his bank seal. Both Yumehito Imanari and Shinichiro Tominaga tried to attack Sasaki but he easily knocked both of them out. Ohka cried when he handed over his bank seal. Sasaki now has full control over all of Ohka’s savings and bank accounts! When Tominaga recovered he challenged Sasaki to a title match but that decision will not be made until after Sasaki’s next defence in K-DOJO on 15th October. Sasaki said if he loses the title there then Tominaga will still have to fight him. According to Sasaki, fighting him is more important than the championship. But even then it might not happen. Sasaki is so satisfied with the money and accomplishments he recently “earned” that he may retire from wrestling altogether. All he has to do is go to the bank tomorrow and cash out. He lost interest in that idea when he learned the bank doesn’t open until 3pm.

At the start of the show, Producer Dino was asked about who he picked to be the NωA’s ringside assistant for their match against T2Hide. He kept it a secret, only sharing that it involved Sanshiro Takagi lives near Seijo and this person was chosen to solve some family problems. When the match took place Makoto Oishi introduced the mystery person. It was Kayako Takagi, Sanshiro’s wife! Toru Owashi tried to calm the situation down by encouraging Kazuki Hirata to do his entrance but the match began. Hirata convinced Sanshiro to wear the HIRATA GO! glasses with him but Kayako wore a pair of her own to turn the duel into a stalemate. Shunma Katsumata & MAO got in the ring and knocked down T2Hide with Dropkicks. They placed Sanshiro on top of Hirata and Kayako Moonsaulted onto both of them. Everyone else then piled up on top of them to pin Hirata. Sanshiro tried to reconcile with Kayako after the match but she slapped him and left. Sanshiro told everyone in the audience he has a scary wife and he promises to make it up to her tomorrow.

Masahiro Takanashi used HARASHIMA’s own weapon against him. He goaded HARASHIMA into throwing a High Kick but ducked, leading HARASHIMA to kick his partner Kouki Iwasaki in the head by mistake. Takanashi then rolled Iwasaki into a pin with the Bacchus. HARASHIMA complimented Takanashi in an interview backstage. HARASHIMA said that although he himself was in an unfamiliar tag team with Iwasaki today, it was Takanashi’s skills and bond with KUDO that won the match for Shuten-dōji. Both KUDO & Takanashi commented that they want to see Naomichi Marufuji get kicked in the head in their KO-D Tag Team Title Match. KUDO wants to kick Marufuji while Takanashi wants to pull off the same trick he did with HARASHIMA today.

The only previous time Reika Saiki and Rika Tatsumi have wrestled in the ring together was at “JUDGEMENT 2017” in March. They were on the same team then. Tatsumi has a chance of becoming a double champion because she is also part of the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Title tournament final on 14th October. Tatsumi had never won a championship before in any sort of competition so she is motivated to win. Saiki learned in her first defence that a single mistake could cost her the championship so she is learning not to hesitate in her matches.

6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) defeated “brother” YASSHI with the Fire Spear (20:45).
*V3 for Ken Ohka.

The Independent World Jr. Title still belongs to Ken Ohka after a hard fought victory against “brother” YASSHI. Ohka kicked out of YASSHI’s big moves like the Nice Jamaica and the Flying Big Head. Ohka hit back with a Headbutt and a short range Fire Spear for a nearfall. Ohka then finished YASSHI off with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster and another Fire Spear to win. Ohka gave an emotional speech to YASSHI after the match. Ohka didn’t know anything when they first met. He wasn’t physically strong or had any athletic achievements but he still wanted to be a pro wrestler. So he found the Dragon System, joined their wrestling school and met YASSHI for the first time. Ohka can’t say who was the bigger fool of the two when they went their seperate ways. Ohka had quit and returned to wrestling so many times over 17 years. Today in Shinjuku FACE he and YASSHI had a big match together. He is so happy he gets to wrestle his colleagues now. Ohka fell onto YASSHI and hugged him. YASSHI was crying too and he didn’t know why. He didn’t care about winning a championship today. He came here today to look for an answer and now he found it. He wanted to fight a confident and emotional wrestler who would put it all on the line with no regrets. Today’s match wasn’t for “brother” YASSHI, it was for Yasushi Tsujimoto. He said there is not a single wrestler like Ken Ohka in this industry. YASSHI pleaded with Ohka to continue wrestling and to do so with pride. With the silly emotional stuff out of the way, YASSHI snapped back to his regular self and told Ohka he made a jealous enemy today. When they meet again in this ring, YASSHI will kill him!

When YASSHI left ringside, Ohka went into his finishing speech but was suddenly interrupted by an unexpected visitor. It was Daisuke Sasaki and he was carrying the DDT Extreme Title! Sasaki thought Ohka was going to lose but he proved him wrong. Sasaki called it a great match that moved him and he hopes the 3 Way Match in DDT on 24th September will be just as good. He wanted to shake Ohka’s hand. It was a trap and Sasaki kicked Ohka below the belt! Sasaki mocked Ohka for falling for his trap. He doesn’t care about championships, he’s here to win the 660,000 yen that Ohka would have gambled had he lost his championship today. Ohka told Sasaki he has no need to gamble it now. His Independent World Jr. Title will be defended in the match as planned so he has no need to put his money on the line anymore. Sasaki silenced Ohka when he pulled something out of his pocket. It was Ohka’s savings book! Sasaki stole it backstage during the main event. Sasaki looked through it and discovered that Ohka now has 714,146 yen in his account. Ohka called for help and several Ganpuro wrestlers ran into the ring to grab the book. Sasaki fought all of them off. Ohka got up and Headbutted Sasaki. He went for the Fire Spear but Sasaki dodged it and Ohka speared himself into the turnbuckles. Sasaki fled the ring with Ohka’s savings book. Ohka’s money is gone but he will still defend his title in DDT on 24th September. Then he will defend it again against MIYAWAKI back in Ganbare☆Wrestling on 30th September.

The Awakening Power Bomb that Keisuke Ishii used to win his match is a Sit Down Thunder Fire Power Bomb. The match was also Shota’s return bout for Ganbare☆Wrestling. His first match back from injury happened the day before in Guts World. His partner for the match Yumehito Imanari apologised for taking the fall and letting him down.

Shuichiro Katsumura stopped Osamu Namiguchi with a Benadryller style High Kick to win by TKO. Although he was still dazed, Namiguchi grabbed a microphone and thanked Katsumura for not holding back against this dying semi-pro wrestler. However Namiguchi wasn’t satisfied by how he lost and now feels like the worst wrestler in Japan. He begged Katsumura to strike him right in the brain and finish him off. Katsumura said he didn’t understand what Namiguchi was saying. He noted that the match they just had was advertised as a Shinjuku bout. So they should have more matches against each other in places like Shin-Kiba and other cities. Namiguchi shouted with approval.

Nanaka Kawamura made quite an entrance for her debut wrestling match. She entered wearing a hockey mask, carrying a floral designed chainsaw and was accompanied by four other girls doing the same. Emi Sakura was announced as the “Youngest Active Idol Wrestler” during her introduction, which made her glare at the ring announcer. She also glared at Kawamura when she offered a respectful handshake at the start of the match. Sakura & Riho put Kawamura through the usual rookie’s welcome while HARUKAZE did what she could to aid her partner. Kawamura eventually submitted to Sakura’s Shukurimu but was praised by Ken Ohka after the match. Ohka urged Kawamura to continue and one day she will get her first victory. Ohka then praised Sakura for her entire career but accidentaly made her mad when he said she gave up the chance of marriage to do what she does. Sakura scolded Ohka for his words then turned to Kawamura. Sakura is happy to get new challenges and Kawamura should be too. Kawamura said it was her mother’s dream to become a pro wrestler and today she made it come true on her behalf. Kawamura wants Sakura to come back so they can have more matches together.

There was a special guest in attendance for today’s show. Katsuji Nagashima has worked behind the scenes for New Japan and World Japan. He spoke with several wrestlers in the ring throughout the show and asked for everyone to nickname him Wolf. He handed a book to Imanari and told him it was the same book he gave to Kensuke Sasaki when he convinced him to leave New Japan for World Japan. He said he made Sasaki betray Riki Choshu. Now he thinks Imanari should betray Sanshiro Takagi! At the end of the show he told Ohka he was surprised by what he saw. He felt like he watched pro wrestling for the first time again. He offered to lend Ohka 10,000 yen after he saw Sasaki steal his money. He then asked Ohka to call him Wolf again.
