Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
215 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuna Manase & Raku defeated Miu & Hinano when Manase pinned Hinano with a Neck Screw (9:31).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka-oneesan and Yuki Kamifuku when Misao pinned Kamifuku with the I Am A Hero (7:04).
3. Shoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Aino with a the Unmanned Local Train Hold (9:21).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuu & Hikari when Saki-sama submitted Hikati with the Versailles Foot Choke (11:09).
5. Special Single Match: Su Yung defeated Maho Kurone with the Panic Switch (9:32).
6. Yuka Sakazaki, Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita, Marika Kobashi & Rika Tatsumi when Mizuki pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special (14:47).

Rika Tatsumi had to get over her crush on Mizuki so she could wrestle her. The Ito Respect Army gave Marika Kobashi a Double DDT while Yuka Sakazaki wiped out Tatsumi & Miyu Yamashita with the Magical Girls Splash. Mizuki then pinned Kobashi with the Cutie Special. After the match Maki Ito told Kobashi to get stronger for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles Match later this month because Ito doesn’t want to be in a boring match.

The poor referee assigned to the Maho Kurone Vs Su Yung match had his arms bitten by both at the same time. Yung hit Kurone with a rope assisted Pedigree and won with the Panic Switch. The two seemed to have patched up their differences after the match.

Yuki Kamifuku approached NEO Biishiki-gun after Match #4 asking to join the group. She thinks Saki-sama & Azusa Christie look so cool and stylish tgoether that she wants to be a part of it too. Christie was furious at the idea and thought Kamifuku was rude to ask them. Saki-sama however thought it was an interesting idea. Kamifuku isn’t at the level to join yet but she can be their apprentice for now. Kamifuku is happy with the decision. Christie is not.

Shoko Nakajima won her match with an Inverted Rings Of Saturn submission hold she calls the Unmanned Local Train Hold. It’s a Shin Godzilla reference according to the DDT English Update twitter account.

Hyper Misao told Nodoka-oneesan that she owns the patent on saying hello to the audience. Since Nodoka has been greeting the audience ever since her debut in January 2016, Misao worked out that Nodoka owes her 4,536,000 yen in overdue patent fees. However because they are friends, Nodoka only has to pay her 4,000,000 yen. When Yuki Kamifuku got in the way Misao and Nodoka worked together to get rid of her. Nodoka gave Kamifuku the Back Flip. Misao then snuck away with the win by pinning Kamifuku with the I Am A Hero. She was so happy with the win that she dropped the debt Nodoka supposedly owes her.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “I HAVE NEVER SEEN 2018”, 19/05/2018
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 “DREAMING I WAS DREAMING 2018” Results

April 29, 2018

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “DREAMING I WAS DREAMING 2018”, 28/04/2018
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
156 Fans – No Vacancy

*Ken Ohka fails in V1. Keisuke Ishii becomes the 27th Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion!
5. Fanfare For The Imanari Revolution: Yumehito Imanari defeated Takeshi Okada with a Clothesline (11:13).

This show marks five years of Ganbare☆Wrestling. The promotion has always been about Ken Ohka first and foremost but Yumehito Imanari now takes offence to that. When the show began Imanari asked Ohka why does he always get the main event? Why does Ohka get to be the face of Ganpuro? Imanari asked if Ohka ever tweeted from the official Ganpuro account. He then asked if Ohka even knows the account’s password. Ohka stayed silent. If Ohka doesn’t know the password then he doesn’t deserve to be the face of Ganpuro. Today is the beginning of the Imanari Revolution! Ohka defended himself and said as the face of Ganpuro and the reigning Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion he had to be in today’s main event. The ring announcer proved him wrong when he revealed the match order that had Imanari Vs Takeshi Okada in the main event and Ohka’s title defence underneath.

In the main event Imanari was accompanied by Yukihiro Abe carrying homemade flags with “Imanari Revolution” written on it. With a new wave of confidence, Imanari took the fight to Okada. He dropped him with the Northern Lights Bomb and hit Clothesline after Clothesline from all directions until Okada could not kick out of the pins any longer. Okada protested that he raised his shoulder up in time but the result stood. As part of their agreement before the match, Okada now has to give the LINE ID address of the cute woman who cuts his hair to Imanari. Imanari also wants to challenge Shuichiro Katsumura to a one on one match next month. Katsumura approves of Imanari grabbing momentum when it comes to him but that doesn’t mean his skill has grown also. His revolution won’t succeed without strength. With that said, Katsumura accepted the challenge. Imanari closed the show by playing “BAD COMMUNICATION”. The song is the tune for Ganpuro as well as Ohka. Ohka and Imanari had another argument after the show over who should be the face of Ganpuro. Ohka also wants to know what their Twitter password is.

Ohka’s day went from bad to worse when he lost his championship to Keisuke Ishii. Ohka quickly went for the Brainbuster on the outside but Ishii reversed it. Ohka later went for the Fire Spear but it was countered with a Front Knee Kick. Ohka came back with a short range Spear. Ishii turned the tables by countering a Kido Clutch into a Tiger Suplex. He then hit the Kneel Kick for the three count. Ishii was so happy to win a title that he’s dreamed of ever since he was a trainee. He told Ohka if any Ganpuro wrestler ever wants to challenge him for the title he will accept it.

Shuichiro Katsumura kicked Shinichiro Tominaga in the face so many times during their tag match that Tominaga begged him to stop. He said that he needed to help with his daughter’s spring break homework but it was just a distraction so he could push Katsumura into the referee. Tominaga went for the Erotic Driver but Katsumura turned it into the Ninja Choke and quickly made him give up.

Saki refused to shake HARUKAZE’s hand at the start of their match because HARUKAZE missed last month’s show. They were supposed to face each other last month but HARUKAZE missed it to go on a family trip to Dubai. They had a conversation about her vacation while they wrestled.

Everyone in the Falls Count Anywhere Match came armed with a weapon. Sanshiro Takagi had bottle rockets, Gota Ihashi wore boxing gloves and Chikara brought out a ladder. Takagi also brought out a bag of erotic magazines and forced them onto his opponent’s faces until Yukihiro Abe stopped him with an Enzuigiri. Abe and Ihashi then gave Takagi the Golden☆Trigger. Chikara spun around with the ladder on his shoulders to knock everyone down then hit the Saber Chop from the ladder to Ihashi for the win.

Shuhei Washida came out at the start of the show and said he is out of action with a herniated disc. He regrets getting injured so soon into his career with only four matches under his belt. He hopes he will be back soon.


Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ 2018

April 27, 2018

This year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ returns under a different format. Instead of a round robin tournament it is now a single elimination playoff featuring 16 wrestlers, most of who have competed in the previous years. The prize for the winner is 500,000 yen and every match has no time limit.

The notable name absent from the field is last year’s winner Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi. So far no reason has been given for why he isn’t there. The first timers are Fuminori Abe, Akiyori Takizawa, Manabu Hara, Minoru Fujita and Yasu Urano. Most of the rest have been in the previous two tournaments except for Takato Nakano, who was only in last year’s. This is the competition that made Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and normally he would be a favourite to go far but his new peaceful lifestyle along with a lack of recent ring time has me questioning if he can live up to his previous runs.

There will be seven matches on the show in total. Marika Kobashi gets another crack at winning the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles this time with Reika Saiki on her team. Also the current ring announcer Yuki Aino is graduating from that role to become a pro wrestler. She and Nodoka-oneesan are eager to team up together and have adopted the Steiner Brothers team pose as their own.

Two new international wrestlers will be touring with Tokyo Joshi Pro over the next couple of months. In April, Priscilla Kelly is currently being booked for three shows. Kelly is from Georgia, America and was the first ever SHINE NOVA Champion. In May, Su Yung will appear at the Korakuen Hall show. Yung is from Washington and a few years ago transformed into the undead “Bloody Bride” wrestler. Naturally Tokyo Joshi is putting her in a tag team with Maho Kurone. Together their team name is Dead Of Alive (not Dead Or Alive like I first thought). Both DDT and Tokyo Joshi are planning on bringing in more foreign wrestlers to their shows throughout the rest of 2018.

3. Mysterious Moment! India And Panda Come Together! Special Tag Match!: Yukihiro Abe & Chikara defeated Brian Aki & J-Soul Pandita III IV when Abe pinned Pandita with the Kamigoye (Permission Acquired) (9:23).

5. Student Pro Wrestler Returns: MEN’S Teioh & Onryo defeated Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga when Teioh pinned Tominaga with the Tokai Special (17:36).
6. Ganpuro Family Vs Katsumura-gun 6-Man Tag Team Elimination Match: Ken Ohka, Yumehito Imanari & Katsumi Oribe defeated Shuichiro Katsumura, Takeshi Okada & Black Ribera (19:38).
6a. Katsumi Oribe eliminated Black Ribera by Ring Out (10:23).
6b. Shuichiro Katsumura eliminated Katsumi Oribe with the Ninja Choke (12:23).
6c. Ken Ohka and Shuichiro Katsumura eliminated each other by Double Ring Out (17:38).
6d. Yumehito Imanari eliminated Takeshi Okada with the Chubby Knee (19:38).

Yumehito Imanari was the hero of the day for Ganbare☆Wrestling as they beat Katsumura-gun in an Elimination Match. The tricky Black Ribera was eliminated first when Katsumi Oribe blocked his Hurricanrana to the apron and lifted him out of the ring. Shuichiro Katsumura evened the score by choking out Oribe with the Ninja Choke. Katsumura and Ken Ohka eliminated each other when they fought on the apron and Imanari knocked both of them to the floor. That left Imanari alone against Takeshi Okada. Katsumura-gun tried to interfere but Imanari hit the Chubby Knee kick and got the winning pinfall. Okada demanded to continue and Imanari challenged him to a match on 28th April.

The Tokai Special is MEN’S Teioh and Onryo doing T-Pose Power Bombs.

Nobuhiro Tsurumaki encouraged Gota Ihashi to continue wrestling. He’s been doing this for twenty years and no bad matches have ever stopped him.

J-Soul Pandita III IV wore a Tiger Jeet Singh style turban to mark the occasion of him teaming with Brian Aki. A landmark event in the relationship between India and wherever on earth Pandita is from. Pandita ruined the moment by attacking his opponents with an umbrella but Yukihiro Abe & Chikara stopped him with a Sling Blade, Sabre Chops and the Kamigoye.

Saki and Hikaru Shimizu were brought in as “pinch hitters” for the women’s match because HARUKAZE was away on a family vacation.

The rookie Shuhei Washida was put through the ringer by Tomomitsu Matsunaga. When they were fighting outside the ring Matsunaga threw Washida’s knee into a wall the targeted it for the rest of the match. Matsunaga then finished off a tired Washida with a Half Crab.
