1. Benmaru Tournament 0 – Round 1: Daiki Shimomura defeated Akiyori Takizawa with the Swanton Bomb (8:23).
2. Benmaru Tournament 0 – Round 1: Jun Masaoka defeated Takato Nakano with a Thrust Kick (8:10).

4. Special Single Match: Isami Kodaka Vs Daisuke Sekimoto ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
5. Sakigake! Iron Family Vs Bloody Brothers!: Masaya Takahashi, Toshiyuki Sakuda & Takayuki Ueki defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Ryuji & SAGAT when Takahashi pinned SAGAT with the Jackhammer (15:14).
6. Cavalry Vs Astronauts!: Ryota Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine defeated Takuya Nomura & Fuminori Abe when Sekine submitted Abe with the Let’s Combine (17:16).

Cavalry were able to win the main event by having Ryuichi Sekine hold Fuminori Abe in place with a Full Nelson so Ryota Nakatsu could hit him with a High Kick to the head. Abe tried to recover and put Sekine in a Triangle Choke but it was countered into the Let’s Combine for the submission finish. Both of Cavalry admitted they felt jealous of Takuya Nomura after wrestling him, Nakatsu because of his skill and Sekine because he is handsome.

The Bloody Brothers weren’t sure what to make of Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Ryuji. They asked each other “What are these people?” when they saw Hiroshi & Ryuji perform yoga in the ring. They were freaked out even more when Hiroshi woke up from his peaceful state during a Sleeper Hold spot and pulled scary faces at everyone.

Twenty minutes wasn’t enough to determine a winner between Isami Kodaka and Daisuke Sekimoto. The two shook hands after their match and teased having a rematch down the line.

Even though Gouma Ryu was the obvious weak link on his team, he still did his best and joined in with the IRON PRIEST spots when he could. He lost the match for his team but FUMA enthusiastically recognised the hard work he put in today. FUMA called it the birth of a new Heavy Metal Warrior. Yusuke Kubo didn’t see things the same way and said today’s result was disappointing. FUMA ignored Kubo and called Ryu a saviour. He then revealed that “FUMA FEST” will return for its second show on 8th December with Gouma Ryu’s law firm as the sponsor! He doesn’t even need permission because he already added the firm’s sponsor logo on the show poster.

Daiki Shimomura announced that with DNA taking a break he will now be wrestling for BASARA! He wrestled in a brand new black costume with some green and orange added to it to mark the new step in his career.

4. Crash! BASARA x DOVE Battle ~ Hardcore Tag Match: Ryota Nakatsu & Ryuichi Sekine defeated Gunso & Kabuki Kid when Nakatsu pinned Kid with the V Slider onto a Chair (13:22).
5. DOVE World Title – Crash! BASARA x DOVE Battle: Naoki Tanizaki (c) defeated Fuminori Abe with the Libido (17:54).
*V4 for Naoki Tanizaki.

The final day of Fighting Beer Garden 2018 began with the crossover show between BASARA and Dove Pro. In the main event Naoki Tanizaki put the DOVE World Title on the line against BASARA’s Fuminori Abe. Abe had the support of the entire BASARA roster behind him and it showed when they did a train entrance with Abe down to the ring. The title match broke down after a ref bump which resulted in all of the Dove wrestlers entering the ring to attack Abe. The BASARA wrestlers came to the rescue and got a few digs in on Tanizaki to even the playing field. Abe though he had the match won when he struck the champion with a Rabbit Punch and placed him in the Manjigatame. However Tanizaki countered the hold into the Implant. He then hid the Reverse Implant but Abe kicked out at one! Abe caught Tanizaki in a Crucifix Pin in a last ditch attempt to squeak in a victory but Tanizaki kicked out and hit Abe with the Casanova knee strike. He then hit his Libido Go 2 Sleep variant for the three count.

The overall score on today’s show was 3-2 for Dove Pro. Tanizaki and the rest of Dove Pro rubbed it in after the main event. They came all the way to Tokyo for this? Where’s the energy you get at the Dove shows out west? Ryota Nakatsu confronted Tanizaki in response to this. Tanizaki asked who this guy was and the crowd started chanting for Nakatsu. Tanizaki promoted Dove Pro’s event at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 20th September then assured Nakatsu that he remembers their Union MAX Title match at Korakuen Hall is happening the next day. Isami Kodaka said that he lost to Tanizaki, Abe lost to Tanizaki and Takato Nakano lost to Tanizaki. But Nakatsu will beat Tanizaki! Nakatsu will win the MAX Title and bring it back to BASARA! Even though there is tension between the champion and challenger, things are a little friendlier between Kodaka and Gunso. They thanked everyone for coming to the show and shook hands at the end.

BASARA’s big win of the day came form the Hardcore Tag Match. When Gunso & Kabuki Kid made their entrance they decided to stay away from the ring. That drew Nakatsu & Ruichi Sekine out to them for an arena wide brawl. Chairs and steel boxes were used throughout. Sekine wiped out the Dove team with a big dive outside the ring while Nakatsu delivered a Superplex to Kabuki Kid onto the weapons inside. Nakatsu then finished off Kid with the V Slider onto the chairs to win the match for Cavalry.

Dove’s Rey Paloma decided to put his restaurant Acapulco on the line against one of the BASARA wrestlers. Who he faced was determined by a 4 Way Battle Royal. Gouma Ryu & SAGAT worked together to eliminate Best Stretchman V3. They then turned on and eliminated each other. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi won the match and all he did was practice yoga the entire time! When it was time for Paloma to wrestle him, Paloma thrusted his crotch into Hiroshi’s face while he was still meditating. This annoyed Hiroshi enough to react and put Paloma in different holds. Somehow the moves both wrestlers were doing began to resemble yoga holds. The back and forth continued until Paloma trapped Hiroshi in a Cradle for the three count. The result meant Paloma successfully defended the ownership of his restaurant for the first time. He cheered Hiroshi up by suggesting he can hold monthly yoga sessions at the restaurant.

The rule of the Drunkers Match was Kodaka and Shoichi Uchida both had to drink a shot of tequila after every round until one man was left standing. After Round 7 both men were too hammered to get back up so the match was brought to an end. The winner was then decided by three judges: Yuya Okada, Yuki Aoki and Gouma Ryu. Aoki & Ryu voted for Uchida when he handed them 10,000 yen. Uchida was declared the winner by split decision!

The fighting between BASARA and Dove Pro continued after the opening match.

Shinjuku FACE
355 Fans

1. Matsunaga Formula Drunk Match ~ Lumberjack Customers Bring The Alcohol Death Match ~ Keisuke Ishii Heisei Last Summer Special: KUDO Vs Yuki Ueno ended in a No Contest (6:27).
1a. Rematch – Complete Settlement Finger Sumo Rule: Yuki Ueno defeated KUDO by 3 Count (11:55).
2. Wrestling Rules: Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Kuishinbo Kamen with an Achilles Tendon Lock (R2 4:44).
3. Double Main Event: Akito Vs Isami Kodaka ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).
4. Double Main Event II – Falls Count Anywhere Customers Bring The Weapons Death Match: Violento Jack defeated Shunma Katsumata with the Package Piledriver onto a Can Board (18:59).
5. Bonus Track: Akito, Shunma Katsumata & Yukio Sakaguchi defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani, Yuki Ueno & Yuki Iino when Katsumata pinned Iino with a Diving Foot Stomp (3:38).

Today was ALL OUT’s turn to have a go at Beer Garden. At this point in the week a few wrestlers have gotten more than their fill of alcohol. They all wanted Shunma Katsumata to drink with them after the main event. Yukio Sakaguchi stepped in and told everyone it was not good for Katsumata’s health to be forced into drinking alcohol. Nobuhiro Shimatani, Yuki Ueno & Yuki Iino all decided to attack Sakaguchi, Akito & Katsumata causing an impromptu match to close out the show. Sakaguchi used Kuishinbo Kamen’s top as a cape to lure Iino into a bullfight. Iino crashed into the turnbuckles. Akito put Iino into a choke and positioned him for Katsumata to hit the Diving Foot Stomp for the win. Konosuke Takeshita joined the rest of ALL OUT to celebrate with one more drink.

Katsumata’s scheduled match was a Fans Bring The Weapons Death Match against Violento Jack. There were already tables, ladders and barbed wire boards placed in the ring but the wrestlers also got different items from the audience to use on each other. The match found its way over to the counters and Jack gave Katsumata a Package Piledriver through a board with empty cans attached to it. After the match Jack said he will never forget Katsumata’s name after today and he appreciated his hard work. Looks like Katsumata has made a new amigo and he is scary as hell!

Akito and Isami Kodaka spent 20 minutes of grappling back and forth without a winner determined. Before the match began Kodaka went around having a beer bash like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Meanwhile Akito decided to wrestle barefoot. In the final minutes both of them tried to find transitions out of a Headlock to get a flash pin but the time ran out without anybody getting pinned. Kodaka told Akito he doesn’t want to wrestle against him much because the fatigue he gets from it is unlike any other time he wrestles. However he noticed that Akito is still in the King Of DDT tournament. If Akito can win it and become the KO-D Openweight Champion then maybe the next time they fight they will both be standing at the top of DDT!

Nobody told Kuishinbo Kamen about Takeshita’s injury. Also nobody told him that Sakaguchi was his new opponent. He was so surprised when he stood across a large scary man in the ring today. He didn’t want to fight Sakaguchi so he instead took out a picture book to read. Sakaguchi took the book and wanted to fight. Kamen agreed to have a match made up of three rounds, two minutes each. Kamen convinced Sakaguchi to do his comedy spots with like the pose, the hop and the Low Blows. Sakaguchi knocked down Kamen with a High Kick but Yukinori Matsui was recovering from the Low Blow. Takeshita got into the ring and everybody gave each other Leg Kicks. Kamen but Sakaguchi in a Leglock that had no effect. Sakaguchi reversed the move and Kamen immediately tapped out. Sakaguchi felt so bad about making Kamen upset after the match that he gave him back his book and asked him to read it to everyone. Takeshita brought out a large version of the book for the audience to see and everyone had a fun time reading it.

Plans for Tomomitsu Matsunaga’s opening match were changed when most of the participants were declared too drunk to wrestle. The match became KUDO Vs Yuki Ueno in a Lumberjack match where the Lumberjacks forced anyone thrown out of the ring to drink more alcohol. The match reached its most obvious conclusion when both KUDO and Ueno got too drunk to wrestle. The solution to this problem was to determine the winner with a game of Finger Sumo. While that went on the other wrestlers found new drinking games to pass the time. They did a lottery where fans pulled out names. They then brought out a dartboard with everyone’s name on it and got Yuni (how was he allowed in here?) to throw a dart and pick the next drinker. Ishii’s name was far larger than anyone else’s. Back at the Finger Sumo, the theme song to “Over The Top” played. KUDO tried to put Ueno in a Cross Armbreaker position but Ueno outmanoeuvred him and pinned down KUDO’s thumb for the three count.

The wrestlers also drank during Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi’s public yoga session. I think they may have a problem.

4. Isami Kodaka & Kazuhiro Tamura defeated Best Stretchman V3 & Best Stretchman Amazon when Kodaka pinned V3 with a Rope Assisted School Boy (10:41).
5. Fuminori Abe, Manabu Hara & Akiyori Takizawa defeated FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT when Abe submitted SAGAT with the Manjigatame (13:56).
6. Naoki Tanizaki & Shiori Asahi defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Tanizaki pinned Sekine with the Implant (14:22).

Naoki Tanizaki continues to win matches over Ryuichi Sekine. Their confrontation after the main event was interrupted however by Fuminori Abe. He pointed out that there is a BASARA and Dove Pro double header in Shinjuku FACE on 5th August. Abe will be challenging Tanizaki for the DOVE World Title on the Dove Pro show that day. He wants to prove that BASARA can be crazier than Dove when they fight under Dove’s rules. Tanizaki tried to end the show with a “We are Dove Pro Wrestling!” rallying cry but Nakatsu and Abe stopped him and wanted the microphone back because this is a BASARA show. When Tanizaki left, Abe promised he will win the DOVE Title before BASARA’s return to Korakuen Hall in September. Nakatsu said that while that championship is important, BASARA should also be concerned about getting back the Union MAX Title. He told everyone to leave it to him.

Isami Kodaka celebrated his team’s win by acting like Stone Cold Steve Austin. He had a beer bash, gave both Best Stretchmen the Stunner then gave Kazuhiro Tamura a Stunner too.

The newly renamed Trans-Am ★ Ryuji was able to get over his embarrassing change thanks to Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. During the match Ryuji was trapped in a Sleeper Hold by Daiki Shimomura. Rather than break the hold, Hiroshi instead went into a yoga pose and taught Ryuji a breathing exercise so he could regain control. Ryuji was able to power out of the hold and beat Shimomura to win the match.

It’s been a while since the last Pro Wrestling Trial so Gouma Ryu and Banana Senga were both rusty. So much so that Minoru Fujita pinned Senga before the trial could begin. They went ahead with the case anyway and accused Fujita of opening up a pro wrestling shop without any qualifications. Fujita pinned Ryu and Senga with a Double Russian Leg Sweep to prove he was qualified. Senga then tried to accuse Fujita of faking his divorce so Fujita pinned him again. The court ruled that Fujita is not guilty but is divorced.

1. Naoki Tanizaki, Yuki Aoki & Kouhei Kinoshita defeated Ryuichi Sekine, Ryota Nakatsu & Takato Nakano when Tanizaki pinned Nakano with the Implant (12:09).
2. “brother” YASSHI defeated SAGAT with the Nice Jamaica (11:02).
3. FUMA & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Shoichi Uchida & Kenshin Chikano when Tsukamoto pinned Uchida with a Thrust Kick (12:28).
4. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Rey Paloma with the Zen Samson Clutch (10:48).
5. TLC 4 THE HARD WAY – DOVE World Title Challenger Decision: Fuminori Abe defeated Isami Kodaka, Kabuki Kid and Gunso when Abe grabbed the prize (13:15).

The feud between BASARA and Dove Pro transferred over to Dove’s shows with a series of matches pitting the two sides together. The main event featured two wrestlers from each promotion but it was every man for themselves because they fought in a TLC Match with a DOVE World Title shot on the line. Fuminori Abe was the odd man out because of his lack of experience in hardcore wrestling but he was able to adapt. Gunso and Kabuki Kid were too focused on fighting each other at the top of the ladder to defend themselves from Isami Kodaka. He knocked them out of action and then climbed the ladder to get the contract. However Abe stopped Kodaka and twisted him into the Octopus Hold at the top of the ladder. Abe was then able to pull down the contract while he was applying the move to win the match. The champion Naoki Tanizaki encouraged Abe to plan their title match for 5th August in Shinjuku.

The power of yoga defeated the power of ecstasy when Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi won over Rey Paloma. Hiroshi convinced Paloma to try some yoga during their match but Paloma ended up resisting it. However his attacks left him open for Hiroshi to trap him in a Samson Clutch for the 3 count.

Naoki Tanizaki got some momentum over Ryota Nakatsu when the two clashed in a trios match. The BASARA team put the Dove team in trouble with a triple submission spot but Tanizaki recovered to pin Takato Nakano with the Implant. After the match Nakatsu motioned that he will win the Union MAX Title from Tanizaki.

Overall BASARA won the day with three wins to Dove’s two. “brother” YASSHI increased Dove’s early lead with a win over SAGAT. But from Match #3 onwards BASARA won the rest of the matches.

2. Takumi Tsukamoto & Gouma Ryu defeated Aaron Anders & Daiki Shimomura when Tsukamoto pinned Shimomura with the Zudon (9:50).

5. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi-Final: FUMA defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi with the Iron Maiden (15:26).
6. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Semi-Final: Ryota Nakatsu defeated Yasu Urano with the V Slider (19:51).

The final of the 2018 Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ is set. FUMA faces Ryota Nakatsu on 12th July. Nakatsu was up for the challenge against the much more experienced Yasu Urano. He fought out of the Modern Times cradle and got the win with the V Slider. FUMA defeated his Metal Family stablemate Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi by rendering him unconscious with the Iron Maiden. The move is the same submission hold as Daisuke Sasaki’s Crossover Facelock. When Hiroshi recovered, FUMA shook his hand then Hiroshi raise FUMA’s hand in victory so there is no ill will between them.

When the main event was done, FUMA entered the ring and offered a handshake to Nakatsu. However Nakatsu ignored FUMA so he could give his own handshake to Urano outside the ring. FUMA asked again and Nakatsu blew him off a second time. Nakatsu told FUMA he won’t shake his hand before their match. FUMA snapped and attacked Nakatsu while screaming “I will win!” When he left the ring Nakatsu was helped back to his feet by Ryuichi Sekine. Nakatsu promised to win the tournament so he can share the 500,000 yen prize with Sekine.

Isami Kodaka has been practising Moonsaults during the week. It paid off because that move won the 6-Man Tag match for his team.

Ryuichi Sekine decided to fit in with Banana Senga by putting on a yellow suit and becoming the monster farmer Noko Kaijin Let’s Combine! Senga snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when he pinned Best Stretchman V3 after Senga was hit with the Diving Best Stretch Kick. Senga declared that he has won the final battle so he is now quitting the gimmick. He then remembered that he has another match against Best Stretchman V3 scheduled for 12th July. They agreed to a final stipulation. The loser will be forced to keep their gimmick for the rest of their life!

Sekine also found out he will be facing Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi on the same show in a Name Contra Name match. The loser must change their name from Ryuichi to Ryuji. Tsutomu Oosugi has agreed to be the referee for both stipulation matches.


What Are You Doing This Sunday, DDT Prepares For The Best Ever, Heaven Summit Semi-Finals

DDT “WHAT ARE YOU DOING 2018”, 24/06/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

0. Under Match: Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Mizuki Watase & Aaron Anders
1. 3 Way 6-Man Tag Match: Takatimo Dragon, Hiratimo Dragon & Toru Owashi Vs Keisuke Ishii, Antonio Honda & MAO Vs Tetsuya Endo, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani

5. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Soma Takao Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

It’s been a month since he won it but Shigehiro Irie is ready for his first KO-D Openweight Title defence. Kazusada Higuchi has been a thorn in his side in the build up to this match. Power Vs Power is to be expected here but some words from Higuchi suggests that something more will be needed to determine who wins.

How much can you take DAMNATION at their word? They promise not to cheat or interfere in the DDT Extreme Title Match for the sake of sportsmanship but other than that there hasn’t really been anything else put in place to enforce the stipulation.

KUDO is celebrating 15 years of being a pro wrestler but everyone else involved in the match have their own accomplishments from 15 years ago to celebrate from company debuts to tournament wins.

DDT’s website has given a run down on Sammy Guevara in preparation for his debut. He’s being put in the ring against Mike Bailey because he might go through the same road Bailey has been on during his DDT career so far. Guevara’s nickname of “The Best Ever” has DDT wondering if he can prove it. Whatever happens, this could be the start of a new Japanese dream for a foreign wrestler. I think they have high hopes for this lad.
