Introducing Nodoka Tenma, BASARA Gets Ready For Korakuen

August 22, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2 ~NOW IT’S TIME TO ATTACK~”, 25/08/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Hikari & Raku Vs Miu & Hinano
2. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino Vs Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku
3. Hyper Misao Vs Priscilla Kelly
4. Azusa Takigawa Vs Saki Akai
5. Special Single Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Riho
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Reika Saiki & Maki Ito
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Yuu

The big sister Nodoka-oneesan is gone. Taking her place is Nodoka Tenma! Nodoka revealed her new name and her brand new look on Monday. This change is closer to Nodoka’s real personality than her previous gimmick. So far the fan response to her new look has been completely positive. She will also be getting a new entrance song for her first match as Tenma.

BASARA “BASARA 77 ~FEAST~”, 05/09/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Stretchman Man Vs Gouma Ryu
2. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Daichi Kazato & Yasu Urano
3. Benmaru Tournament 0: Jun Masaoka Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Aikata Vs Bozu! Tag Showdown: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Fuminori Abe
5. Doki! Hardcore Match Full Of Cans: Isami Kodaka Vs FUMA
6. Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano

The main event is a nice mix of veterans and rookies teaming together to continue the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud.

How much has changed since Isami Kodaka and FUMA last fought each other one on one? Normally a match like this would determine a future challenger for the Union MAX Title but this time around I think BASARA will go a different direction. This feels more like a tune-up match for Kodaka before he goes into the steel cage against Masashi Takeda.

It looks like we’re not getting any more Pro Wrestling Trials now that Banana Senga has transformed into Stretchman Man. I don’t think prosecutors are allowed to have a big hook over their hand inside a court room. At least I don’t remember seeing that in Boston Legal or any of the Phoenix Wright games.

*Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi must now be renamed Trans-Am ★ Ryuji.
5. Two Major Renaming Matches – Name Contra Name: Best Stretchman V3 defeated Banana Senga with the Explosive Axe Bomber (12:26). (Special Referee: Tsutomu Oosugi)
*Hercules Senga is supposed to be renamed Banana Senga for the rest of his life. Instead he will become a Best Stretchman.
6. Isami Kodaka Debut 16th Anniversary Memorial Match: Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defeated Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji when Hidaka pinned Kodaka with the Iwami Ginzan (15:10).
7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final: Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA with the V Slider (17:56).

Ryota Nakatsu defeated FUMA in a wild match to win this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~! The match found its way outside the ring a couple of time with FUMA Double Stomping Nakatsu along one of the rows. FUMA later climbed one of the nearby counters and jumped off so he could do the Heavy Metal Anthem. Nakatsu moved out of the way and FUMA landed on the floor. Both of them narrowly returned to the ring in time to continue fighting. Nakatsu avoided FUMA’s Jawbreaker Kick and blocked a Wrist Clutch Exploder to gain control of the match. Nakatsu then hit several Buzzsaw Kicks, a German Suplex and finished FUMA off with the V Slider to win. He thanked FUMA for the match and told him they will face each other again someday. Nakatsu received the 500,000 yen prize money and passed it over to Ryuichi Sekine. He then told everyone his next plan. He wants to challenge for the Union MAX Title at Korakuen Hall on 21st September! He knows Naoki Tanizaki is out there somewhere listening. He better be ready for him!

Isami Kodaka & Naomichi Marufuji did well teaming together but ultimately couldn’t overcome Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita. Kodaka & Marufuji did sandwich Knee Strikes to their opponents and Kodaka even did a Shirauni. Hidaka recovered to stun Kodaka with a High Kick and got the three count with the Iwami Ginzan Gutbuster. All four wrestlers shook hands after the match. Kodaka also appealed for a singles match with Marufuji. Backstage Kodaka and Marufuji joked about the idea. Marufuji said he doesn’t want to do it. Kodaka’s response was he won’t book Marufuji for his 20th Anniversary show. Marufuji said he will buy a ticket and come anyway. In all seriousness, Marufuji was honored to be chosen by Kodaka to be his partner for this big occasion. He doesn’t know if he will come back but Kodaka can always get in contact with him.

There were two gigantic matches with everything on the line today. Never mind the Heaven Summit Final or Kodaka’s Anniversary, there were wrestling names on the line! Tsutomu Oosugi had a busy day by being the referee for both matches. First up, Ryuichi Sekine got the upset victory over Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. It took some effort but Sekine kept the former MAX Champion down with the Dragon Kick. The result means that Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi must now be renamed Trans-Am ★ Ryuji. He describes today as Armageddon but accepts his fate. He is already teaching the fans how to pronounce his new name.

The 2nd Name Contra Name bout had the stakes reversed. This time the loser between Best Stretchman V3 and Banana Senga would be forced to keep their name for the rest of their life! At first Oosugi didn’t know what side to take. Both wrestlers tried to make him pose with them only for the other guy to cut them off. When Senga pinned Stretchman with his feet on the ropes for leverage, Oosugi refused to count and told Senga he is judging this match fairly. Stretchman began taking the match so seriously that he stripped out of his costume and fought with even more spirit. He put Senga away with the Explosive Axe Bomber. Hercules Senga must now stay as Banana Senga forever! Senga accepted his fate until Stretchman changed his mind. Senga is no longer going to be a banana. Senga is now going to become a Stretchman! Senga protested but V3 knocked him out with the Trigger Point and carried him out of the ring laughing maniacly. Next month will see the debut of a third Best Stretchman! Backstage Gouma Ryu tried to stop them because without Hercules Senga around, the Pro Wrestling Trials no longer have a prosecutor.

Takuya Nomura’s first visit to BASARA saw him pitted against three of the more colorful characters in the Metal Family. He didn’t know what to think of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi shrugging off his kicks with the power of yoga. Nomura & Manabu Hara’s kicks were able to leave a mark eventually but their reliance on doing them allowed both Hiroshi & Yusuke Kubo to vitally counter them with Dragon Screws. SAGAT withstood Fuminori Abe’s Octopus Hold and he hit the Goregrind to win one for the Metal Family.

Gouma Ryu relied heavily on Isami Kodaka distracting the referee to have even a slight chance of beating Yoshihisa Uto. The distractions meant the ref missed Ryu tapping out to a Crab Hold. He also missed Ryu hitting Uto with his law book. Ryu thought he had something when he successfully gave Uto the Running Neckbreaker Drop. It all came crashing down though when Uto cut him off with a Lariat. From there Uto picked up the win with the Reverse Tiger Driver.

The opener saw Takato Nakano & Akiyori Takizawa being fired up to take on the veteran team of Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano. The fire was there, the experience was not. Tsukamoto trapped Nakano in a nasty looking Crab Hold to end the match.

The 1st Round of Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ was highlighted by both Cavalry wrestlers winning against more experienced opponents to set up a match between each other in Round 2. Ryuichi Sekine eliminated Isami Kodaka from the tournament in the main event, tapping him out with the Let’s Combine. Meanwhile Ryota Nakatsu out-wrestled Minoru Fujita by blocking the Samson Clutch and pinning him for the three count. Takumi Tsukamoto and Yusuke Kubo brawled over Tsukamoto’s giant hammer and Tsukamoto won out in the end. Gouma Ryu tried his best against Fuminori Abe but he just wasn’t tough enough. The two exchanged strikes until Ryu was knocked down. No matter how much he wanted to get back up, he couldn’t get back to his feet in time for the 10 count.

The 2nd Round matches are Manabu Hara Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Ryuichi Sekine Vs Ryota Nakatsu, FUMA Vs Takumi Tsukamoto and Fuminori Abe Vs Yasu Urano. Hara Vs Hiroshi and Sekine Vs Nakatsu will take place in Itabashi Green Hall on 10th June. FUMA Vs Tsukamoto and Abe Vs Urano will happen in Miyagi Ward Cultural Center on 17th June in Miyagi.

Daichi Kazato was attacked by Hercules Senga after his match. He was rescued by Best Stretchman Amazon. Senga scolded Kazato for being so unmotivated that it resulted in his early elimination from the tournament. He challenged the Best Stretch team to one more tag match on 10th June to settle their feud. Senga’s partner will be SAGAT!

*V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Naoki Tanizaki kept hitting Takumi Tsukamoto with the Casanova knee strikes until he was too hurt to counter the Implant. After the match Tanizaki bragged about being a double champion and dared anyone from BASARA to come out and challenge him for the Union MAX Title. All of the roster came out and faced him in the ring. Tanizaki told all of them there will be a BASARA x DOVE Pro event at Azalea Taisho Hall in Osaka on 15th July. He will be ready for one of them to challenge him then. He then singled out Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and told him he will prepare a great opportunity for him. When he left, Kodaka rallied all the BASARA wrestlers together for a closing speech to the fans.

Kodaka wore his Son Goku costume with the tail included. That led to him and HUB grabbing and pulling each other by their tails while they fought each other.

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.

*Isami Kodaka fails in V6. Naoki Tanizaki becomes the 10th Union MAX Champion! V1 for Naoki Tanizaki.

Dove Pro Wrestling is back with a vengeance and they now have BASARA’s championship! Naoki Tanizaki went into the Double Title main event with Gunso in his corner representing Dove Pro. Isami Kodaka came out by himself with the Union MAX Title around his waist. Tanizaki kicked out of the Diving Double Knee Drop as well as the European Clutch. He dropped Kodaka with the Implant several times throughout the match and they eventually took their toll on Kodaka. Tanizaki finally had him beat with the Casanova knee strike followed by the Libido knee lift for the three count. Tanizaki said the title win was for all of the Dove Pro believers who cheered for him today. He feels confident that he has beaten the best that BASARA has to offer. When he said this, Takumi Tsukamoto came out and challenged him to a MAX Title match. When Tanizaki and Gunso left, Kodaka called all of the BASARA home wrestlers to join him in the ring. He thinks Tsukamoto can bring the Union MAX Title back to BASARA but Kodaka still wants to fight Tanizaki one on one again some day. The show is over and BASARA is starting over. They may have lost today but they will come out of this stronger than they were before!

There is something about Ryota Nakatsu that Ikuto Hidaka seems to like. He feels like he is now Nakatsu’s 45 year old uncle and they will still be wrestling each other until Nakatsu can outkick his uncle. Hidaka admits that if today wasn’t a tag match, he would have lost to Nakatsu after he took his V Slider finisher. Minoru Fujita was also impressed by Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine today.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi returned from a long absence as a changed man. He took up yoga to recover from his dislocated shoulder and travelled to India to learn more about the practice. For his first match back Hiroshi went face to face with Osamu Nishimura. Quite a big opponent for him but he stayed calm throughout. Hiroshi meditated while he was put in submission holds to withstand the pain. Soon Nishimura meditated too and they were both inactive for so long that the referee began to count them towards a double knockout. Both stirred and went back to wrestling until Nishimura locked in a Sleeper Hold. Hiroshi tried to meditate again but ended up losing consciousness. Nishimura then easily rolled him into a Cobra Twist to pin him. He told Hiroshi afterwards that he too has visited India many times to learn yoga. The most important lesson is even if the body is destroyed, the soul will continue to live many lives. Hiroshi said he was happy to learn from a guru today. They then sang a song together.

The return of the BASARA Vs Dove Pro rivalry means the return of SAGAT and Gunso fighting each other in Hardcore Matches. SAGAT lost like he tends to but this time it was FUMA who got pinned. SAGAT gave Jun Kasai a Brainbuster from the ladder but Gunso immediately cut him off with the Diving Guillotine Drop. FUMA fought off his opponents until Gunso took him down with a chair shot. Kasai gave FUMA the Reverse Tiger Driver then Kasai & Gunso hit the Pearl Harbour Splash and Diving Guillotine Drop to FUMA at the same time for the win. Kasai ripped off FUMA’s heavy metal shirt after the match and threw it into the crowd.

Fuminori Abe had a spirited fight against Minoru Tanaka. During their early exchanges Abe told Tanaka “I believe the B in BASARA stands for Batibati!” then he hit him with strikes. Abe later kicked out of the Superfly at one but was quickly put down with the Sliding D. Tanaka shook Abe’s hand after the match but Abe slapped Tanaka across the face in response. Tanaka didn’t mind it. He said that it was a cheerful match and he likes to face wrestlers with Abe’s style of fighting. He didn’t know what to expect because he never saw anything from Abe before today. It was fun though and if the wrestlers have fun with what they are doing then the fans will have fun watching them.

The rest of the BASARA wrestlers were pitted against the Metal Family in a 4 Vs 4 Elimination Match. The weakest of the BASARA team Gouma Ryu took a beating but Yasu Urano was there to keep the numbers even. Ryu was able to eliminate Trans-Am ★ Tanaka by gutsy luck. Tanaka kicked him from the apron but as Ryu fell he tripped Tanaka and pulled him to the floor with him. That left Takumi Tsukamoto and Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi as the final two. They fought on the apron until Tsukamoto knocked Ryuichi to the floor with the Thrust Kick to win the match for BASARA!

Takato Nakano tried to pin Manabu Hara with several different Cradles but a Cross Armbreaker ended the match in Hara’s favour.

6. Union MAX Title – Doki! Hardcore Can Match: Isami Kodaka (c) defeated Takumi Tsukamoto with the Giga Ladder Break (16:12).
*V5 for Isami Kodaka.

The main event had barely finished when Naoki Tanizaki ran into the ring and attacked Isami Kodaka. Tanizaki grabbed the Union MAX Title and said on 3rd May he will challenge Kodaka for the championship at Korakuen Hall! Tanizaki then told everyone that his home promotion Dove Pro Wrestling will be crowning a new champion on 1st April. If he wins the Dove Title then he will also put it on the line against Kodaka to make it a double title match! Takumi Tsukamoto tried to take the MAX Title back from Tanizaki, telling him “It’s our belt!” Tanizaki attacked and gave him the Implant. However, Tsukamoto would not let go of the belt. Tanizaki gave up and left the ring while Tsukamoto handed the belt back to Kodaka.

Best Stretchman Amazon is Tsutomu Oosugi. He promised to take on the gimmick after he failed to win the Union MAX Title at the start of this month. He submitted Gouma Ryu with a Grounded Octopus Hold. Hercules Senga asked for a rematch against the Best Stretch team on 20th April.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi continues to pay tribute to Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi by using his Perfect Plex to win matches. Ryuichi even yelled out Hiroshi’s name as he did the move.

Akiyori Takizawa showed a lot of spirit when fighting against Ryuichi Sekine. There was one moment when Sekine put him in a Camel Clutch and Takizawa broke it by biting onto the bottom rope.
