*V1 for Astronauts.

Astronauts say that the momentum of BASARA and Big Japan cannot be stopped by anything, even by Coronavirus or the Olympics! After failing to win the IRON FIST Tag Titles today, Ryota Nakatsu said he will now focus on regaining the Union MAX Title. That’s not all from Sparky, they want another tag title shot when SAGAT is cleared to wrestle again.

Since the MAX Title match was postponed, Minoru Fujita had to fight Gouma instead. The two ended up fighting outside and Gouma held onto Fujita’s leg long enough for both of them to get counted out. After the match Fujita promised that when he wins the MAX Title, he will first defend it against Masahiro Takanashi. He then told Gouma he will be the second defence afterwards!

On the day of the show, it was announced that Takumi Tsukamoto was no longer considered a close contact to SAGAT and is now free to leave quarantine. However he was still absent from the show because he did not have enough time to travel to the venue.


Oishi Injury Update, Kohei Replaces Shuji, Akai Goes Ahead With DAMNATION Challenge

July 19, 2021

Makoto Oishi tweeted about his back injury he suffered during yesterday’s match. He is currently under examinations at a hospital in Shiroishi. He said he feels sore but doesn’t have any numbness in his back. Other than that he’s just waiting for updates at this point. DDT themselves haven’t said anything about it yet.

There is a replacement in the semi-main event. Shuji Ishikawa recently tested positive for Covid-19 and his recovery period is expected to end on the same day as the DAMNATION show. However he is taking the safe option and has pulled out of the show just in case something goes wrong. Kohei Sato takes his place in Mad Paulie’s big bash.

BASARA “BASARA 164 ~GLITTER~”, 27/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

0. Electric Current Explosion 8-Man Tag Death Match: Atsushi Onita, Sanshiro Takagi, Akito & Maki Itoh Vs Kuro-chan, Super Sasadango Machine, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Hikari Noa
1. Double Ring Double Single Match: Toru Owashi Vs Antonio Honda

4. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

Saki Akai is taking the initiative and challenged DAMNATION for the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles! The concern coming from the rest of Eruption is whether or not Akai is ready to face the powerful trio of Tetsuya Endo, Soma Takao & Yuji Hino. Endo in particular is riding a high as the tourist ambassador of Shiroishi City banishing everyone he beats from his hometown. There are no actual stipulations preventing those wrestlers from visiting that place again but nobody can convince Endo otherwise. Akai isn’t afraid of the mighty task ahead of her. She sees Eruption and DAMNATION as the two strongest groups in DDT so the match must happen to see who is best!

BASARA “BASARA 155 ~GLITTER~” Results

April 20, 2021

BASARA “BASARA 155 ~GLITTER~”, 20/04/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
??? Fans – Withheld

1. Minoru Fujita, Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga defeated Yusuke Kubo, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Daichi Kazato when Fujita pinned Kazato with the Tombstone Piledriver (11:50).
2. 3 Way Match: Daisuke Kamibayashi defeated Fuminori Abe, Gouma and Yasu Urano when Kamibayashi pinned Gouma with a Standing Moonsault (7:51).
3. FUMA defeated Takato Nakano with a Cross Armbreaker (11:19).
4. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT ended in a Time Limit Draw (30:00).
*V3 for Sento Minzoku.
5. Union MAX Title: Takumi Tsukamoto (c) defeated Masato Kamino with the Dragon Kicker (15:11).
*V5 for Takumi Tsukamoto.

Takumi Tsukamoto called Masato Kamino an insanely strong opponent. He fought off his Lariats, avoided being thrown with the Verdict and used a Dragon Kicker to get the win. His next goal is to win the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ as the reigning Union MAX Champion. Then he can nominated his next challenger.

The time expired in the IRON FIST Tag Titles match right after Ryota Nakatsu gave Isami Kodaka the V Slider. Daiki Shimomura took himself out when he missed a Swanton Bomb while SAGAT was there to break the count when Kodaka had Nakatsu beaten with a Brainbuster. Kodaka got a nearfall with the Diving Double Knee Drop but Nakatsu got back into it with a High Kick, a German Suplex and then the V Slider when time ran out. Nakatsu spoke of his regret to tag in SAGAT to finish the job while SAGAT thinks they would have won if they hit the Big Mac.

Gouma got permission to change the rules to the 3 Way Match. Only two wrestlers were allowed to fight in the ring at one time. The odd man out had to wait on the apron and be tagged in to enter the match. At one point Gouma had Fuminori Abe pinned in La Magistral Cradle but Abe grabbed referee Daisuke Kamibayashi’s hand to stop him from counting three. Under the new rules that counted as a tag and Kamibayashi had to wrestle Gouma. Yasu Urano hit Gouma with a Lariat but fell out of the ring when Kamibayashi lowered the ropes. Kamibayashi then pinned Gouma with a Standing Moonsault and Abe performed the three count to award him the win.

The 2021 Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament will be held from 18th May to 7th July. This year’s tournament is back to being BASARA only after last year’s edition was co-promoted with Dove Pro.

The 5th May show in Itabashi Green Hall will celebrate Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s 10th Anniversary in pro wrestling.

Today is the beginning of a trial period where BASARA is allowing its fans to cheer and make noise during the show, as long as they still wear their protective masks over their mouths and noses.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

After yesterday’s event we now have Smile Pissari as the KO-D Tag Team Champions and they already have a title defence lined up. Yuji Okabayashi’s schedule is a busy one and his next free date to appear on DDT is next Sunday. The title match is happening because Jun Akiyama wanted a shot in return for giving HARASHIMA the next KO-D Openweight Title shot. Makoto Oishi has been moved out of the opener to be in the main event.

BASARA “BASARA 155 ~GLITTER~”, 20/04/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT
2. Union MAX Title: Takumi Tsukamoto (c) Vs Masato Kamino

Takumi Tsukamoto has been slipping a bit with Masato Kamino pinning him on the last show. Kamino’s use of the Lariat is giving him win after win, enough to grant him a Union MAX Title shot.

The Sparky pair of Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT have been pretty successful and gotten even better with their new tag team finishing move. The Big Mac where Nakatsu (plus another if it is a trios match) jumps onto SAGAT’s back and they all splash down onto the victim. That will give Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura plenty to chew on when the IRON FIST Tag Titles are on the line.

BAKUHA KOSHIEN “BAKUHA KOSHIEN 2021 SPRING”, 02/05/2021
Kanagawa Tsurumi Fruit & Vegetable Market

1. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Round 1: X & X Vs X & X
2. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Round 1: X & X Vs X & X
3. Bakuha Koshien Spring Tag Tournament – Final – Current Blast Death Match: X & X Vs X & X

The last slot in the Spring Tag Tournament has been spilled. Atsushi Onita demanded Kuro-chan & Super Sasadango Machine to enter the tournament so he can settle his grudge from last December with them. Sasadango is entering the tournament but he found a better “Kuro-chan” to team with. One that Onita has a lot of history with. His partner is Tetsuhiro Kuroda!

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya, Chikara & Nabe Yakan (c) Vs X, X, X & X
2. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Saki Akai (I/c)
3. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Soma Takao

A double title match is added. At least it is supposed to be one. If Saki Akai ends up losing the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title before the show then it will just be the DDT Extreme Title on the line so she is in the match no matter what. Chris Brookes promises to come up with a strange match type for them to fight in.

Team Thoroughbred achieved their goal of winning the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles. Now they have to defend them.

DDT “ULTIMATE TAG LEAGUE 2021 IN KORAKUEN HALL!!”, 09/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Naomi Yoshimura Return Match: Naomi Yoshimura Vs X
2. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda
3. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino

It will be half a year since Naomi Yoshimura’s last match when he returns to action. Yoshimura took time off to recover from cervical injuries after wrestling with back pain for around a year. He asked for Yuki Ueno to be his opponent and it is under consideration.

3. Princess Of Princess Title: Rika Tatsumi (c) Vs X
4. GHC Heavyweight Title: Keiji Muto (c) Vs X
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs HARASHIMA

Akiyama took down one icon of DDT when he beat Danshoku Dieno. Now he is aiming to take down another. HARASHIMA has been the backbone of DDT more than any other wrestler who stepped foot in the company.

This is the first time all four members of Asian Kung Fu Revolution are teaming together.

DDT “KAWASAKI STRONG 2021”, 14/02/2021
Culttz Kawasaki

1. Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani Vs Yusuke Okada & Toui Kojima

7. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Yukio Sakaguchi
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Tetsuya Endo (c) Vs Jun Akiyama

When we last left Tetsuya Endo, he teased about having a secret training partner to help him prepare for Jun Akiyama. His only hint was this trainer is somebody who knows Akiyama inside and out. Well the secret has been revealed and that trainer is Kenta Kobashi! Endo has been training at Kobashi’s fitness gym in Tokyo after he approached Kobashi for advice. Kobashi knew about Endo beating Akiyama during the D-Ou Grand Prix but explained that a tournament match is different from a championship match. Akiyama won’t allow himself to lose to the same opponent twice in a row. He will also be more ruthless because he is now a freelancer and failing to win a championship will affect his wrestling career more than usual. His advice to Endo is to ruthlessly target Akiyama’s knees, especially the left one that he just had surgery on. If Endo can make Akiyama panic, then Endo has a chance to win. Simply doing the same stuff he did in the Grand Prix match won’t work a second time. Kobashi wants Endo to be bold and dynamic to broaden his wrestling style.

Kobashi is throwing his support behind Endo to defend the KO-D Openweight Title. He hopes to see Endo get fired up to do the Shooting Star Press just like he he used to fire up before doing the Moonsault. He also gave Endo dating advice when he found out Endo is single. Endo explained his type to him. He likes women with big boobs such as Tomomi Morisaki. Kobashi bragged about meeting Morisaki at a public event just one month ago. Also as a champion, he explained if Endo treats the belt well the belt will be happy and will always come back to him.

Kobashi will attend the show to provide special guest commentary for the main event. Akiyama has since pointed out that whenever Kobashi appears to watch his title matches, he usually wins.

Yuki Ueno is hoping to clear out all of his bitter memories of Yukio Sakaguchi beating him up. If he successfully defends the DDT UNIVERSAL Title against him then he can spend the rest of 2021 having fun and loving saunas. Ueno has been getting advice from Shinya Aoki to prepare for the match. Sakaguchi thinks the message that has been sent over the last few weeks is he’s strong while Ueno is weak. The two met for commemorative photo during the week and Sakaguchi tried to grab the belt from Ueno. Ueno told him if he wants to take pictures with the belt he should win it on the 14th. Sakaguchi punched Ueno in the stomach and posed with the belt.

Most of the women are excited for their match. Saki Akai & Maya Yukihi are motivated to team together and even form a competitive rivalry of some sort. Saori Anou on the other hand isn’t pleased to be teaming with Miyako Matsumoto. She would much rather be on the same team as Akai or Yukihi. Matsumoto says the best thing about DDT is anything is possible and you are free to do anything. To her the charm of joshi wrestling is not just the glitter but also the grime. She wants Anou to understand that so they can work as a team.

BASARA “BASARA 149 ~GLITTER~”, 16/02/2021

GANBARE☆PRO “CLIFFHANGER 2021”, 21/02/2021
Tokyo Narimasu Act Hall

1. Shota’s Independent Journey: Shota Vs Hyper Brave G-Valion
2. THE HALFEE Vs Watase Manase: Moeka Haruhi & Shu Sakurai Vs Mizuki Watase & Yuna Manase
3. Ganpro Vs Aka Rangers: Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura Vs Takashi Sasaki & GENTARO
4. GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Keisuke Ishii, Kouki Iwasaki & HARUKAZE (c) Vs Asuka, Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga
5. STOP THE Hidaka! Special Single Match: Yumehito Imanari Vs Ikuto Hidaka

I love the name of the main event. ZERO1 had “STOP THE Matsunaga”. Ganbare☆Pro gets “STOP THE Hidaka!” It’s only fitting for the ZERO1 connection that Yumehito Imanari becomes maybe the last man standing in the way of Ikuto Hidaka. Imanari made a promise to be the messiah for Ganpro.

The new GWC 6-Man Tag Team Champions already have a road map set out. The trio called DREAMS HARU TRUE want to defend the belts against Pocchari Joshi. However, Asuka demanded her team with Hagane Shinno & Shinichiro Tominaga get another shot at the titles first because she will only wrestle in Ganpro for championships. She gets what she wants because Ken Ohka is worried she will walk out of the company, especially right before she could potentially become a breakout star in the AEW women’s tournament.

Ohka gets a second chance against the Aka Rangers. That’s if they can make it to the venue in time. Takashi Sasaki & GENTARO already have another match happening at a FREEDOMS and 2AW co-promoted show in Chiba earlier that day.

Even though he no longer has the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title around his waist, Shota still wants to bring the independent spirit to Ganpro. He is bringing in Hyper Brave G-Valion for a match. G-Valion is from a small Tokyo promotion called BRAVES.

8. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Kazusada Higuchi & Yukio Sakaguchi (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & MAO

MAO is happy to see his generation are now the main eventers of DDT. It’s a fight he never wants to give up. Konosuke Takeshita agrees and said the DDT Sauna Club runs in the centre of DDT. They main event Korakuen Hall, they’re main eventing Nagoya Congress Center and now they want the KO-D Tag Team Titles to add to their growing championship haul. These are just the kind of opponents Kazusada Higuchi is looking for. Also Sakaguchi disagrees about the age thing. Everyone from HARASHIMA to Danshoku Dieno are all doing their best no matter their age.

No matter who wins in the main event, the DDT Extreme Title will stay within the Sauna Club for the time being. Shunma Katsumata is also someone with a busy schedule coming up. He is entering the Ikki Tousen Death Match tournament in Big Japan next month.

The book has been booked.

Takumi Tsukamoto chose his opponent for the main event of BASARA’s 5th Anniversary show. He narrowed it down to FUMA and Daichi Kazato because he faced against both of them in the main event tag of the very first BASARA show. In the end, Tsukamoto chose FUMA and their match will have the Union MAX Title on the line.

The Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Minoru Fujita ended in a draw when Hiroshi began to sing “Silent Night”. Fujita joined in and they left the ring together in harmony while the match was still going on. The referee called off the match because the wrestlers had no reason to fight each other.

The rules for the 4 Way Match were created by Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. He was inspired by the Jusenkyo springs from Ranma 1/2 where stepping into the water will transform people into something else, like a cat for example. Sprinkling water onto them would turn them back to normal. So in this match wrestlers began acting like cats whenever they were thrown out of the ring.
