ohka-onita

After months of preparation the day finally came for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Ohka had taken a page out of Atsushi Onita’s book by promising to retire if today’s show had failed to sell out. Thankfully the promotion’s first show in Korakuen Hall turned out to be a success with over a 1,000 fans in attendance. Ohka took big risks in the ring as well as out of it. The main event was a No Rope Barbed Wire Street Fight Tornado 8-Man Tag Team Death Match with Ohka’s team versus Onita’s team. Those two fought each other while chaos reigned around them. Shota was put through a table by an Onita Piledriver. Yumehito Imanari & Mitomi Masayuki gave Onita a Double Brainbuster onto a barbed wire board. Imanari then brought in a barbed wire bat to use on Onita’s team. Ohka took his punishment and got the crowd to rally behind him. An opening came when Ohka ducked under Onita’s red mist. Osamu Namiguchi was blinded instead! Ohka gave Namiguchi the Fire Thunder Bomb but Hideki Hosaka stopped the pin. Ohka then hit the Flame Spear and this time there was nobody there to stop him.

ohka-mist-namiguchi

After the match Namiguchi demanded Onita to face him but Onita told him it’s enough. Onita invited Ohka to come over to the next FMW show on 24th November and congratulated him on a successful show. Namiguchi said he wasn’t convinced and he will crush Ganpuro but Onita ignored him and began spraying water everywhere. When that was over Ohka had some important announcements to make. He is getting married and he will also become a father in December!

fujita-marriage

Saki Maemura/Fujita had her first match back from retirement and one of her opponents was her ex-husband Minoru Fujita. Madoka and Bambi were also involved playing the role of their step-children. The crowd booed whenever Minoru attacked Saki. At one point somebody in the crowd yelled “Mom!” to motivate Saki. It looked to be all over when Minoru gave her the Tombstone Piledriver. But Bambi turned on Minoru when she stopped the pin with a Shining Wizard! Madoka then gave Minoru the Ranhyei and Saki hit a low altitude Frankensteiner for the three count. After the match Saki told Minoru there is nothing she regrets from their relationship. She’s thinks wrestling is very good so Minoru should continue doing it until he’s dead. Minoru understood. A year ago he came into Ganpuro spitting venom but over time he learned to work hard for his wrestling. He doesn’t know what lies ahead but he’ll make sure to do something his and Saki’s children will be proud of.

tominaga-asahi

Shinichiro Tominaga won Shiori Asahi’s respect with their match together. They were only in K-DOJO together for a brief amount of time before Tominaga quit and moved over to Union Pro. Asahi told him that today might not be the end of their story. If Tominaga is motivated to come back to K-DOJO some day then Asahi will be there waiting for him.

katsumura-ito

With all of the chaos happening elsewhere on the show it was nice to have something more straightforward. That’s where Shuichiro Katsumura and Takafumi Ito came in. Katsumura kept trying to lock in the Cross Armbreaker but Ito did what he could to break away. Finally Katsumura applied the move with nowhere for Ito to go. Ito never tapped out but the referee had to stop the match for his safety. Katsumura was declared the winner although Ito was dissatisfied with the result.

ishii-shootingstar

Keisuke Ishii decided to pull out something special for his first match against Yukihiro Abe in years. Ishii won the match with a Shooting Star Press! It was crooked but it did the job. Ishii said the show’s theme was surprise so that was his surprise.

ganpuro-gatoh

The opener was a showcase for Ganpuro’s women as Aoi Ishibashi & Ai Shimizu took on Emi Sakura & “Kotori” from Gatoh Move. Shimizu almost won with a Fisherman Suplex on “Kotori” but she kicked out of the pin. “Kotori” held Shimizu back while Sakura got the three count on Ishibashi with La Magistral Cradle.

shibata-royale

A dark match Battle Royal was held featuring the colourful cast of misfits and oddities that have wrestled in Ganpuro during its existence. Fumihito Kihara and Naoshi Sano focused on fighting each other from the moment the bell rang. Both of them continued fighting each other. Choun-Shiryu tried to Headbutt Mr. No but only hurt himself doing so. American Balloon used his massive man boobs to block Mr. No’s Headbutt much to everyone’s disgust. As the eliminations piled up Dr. Kiriko grabbed Balloon and force fed him some mystery medicine to make him faint. Mars Spector cleared the ring until it was down to just him and Shibata. A missed kick from Spector sent him over the top rope and Shibata knocked him off to be the last man standing. Shibata’s prize for winning is one wish to be granted by Ken Ohka within reason.

1. Abe-chan And Director Imanari: Yukihiro Abe defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Isamuashi Zan (8:26).
2. Ganbare☆Wrestling Public Inspection! Unidentified Hong Kong Police Corps Invasion!: Hong Kong International Women’s Police Man (Ai Shimizu) defeated Hong Kong International Police Man (Choun-Shiryu) and Hong Kong Domestic Bank Robbery Man (Atsushi Maruyama) when Women’s Police Man pinned both Police Man and Bank Robbery Man with a Double Brainbuster (9:30).
3. The Road To Ganpuro Korakuen “G” Vs “K” Special Tag Match: Shinichiro Tominaga & Tigger Bedscene defeated Shiori Asahi & Marines Mask IV when Tominaga submitted Mask with the Just Facelock (11:10).
4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Tsukaisute-gun: Osamu Namiguchi, GENTARO & Shibata defeated Ken Ohka, Shota & Chikara when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanakila-X (14:49).

The currently named Tsukaisute-gun (Disposable Army) were victorious over Ganbare☆Wrestling in the main event. Chikara wanted a fair fight and offered a handshake before the match but GENTARO attacked him instead. There was a ringside brawl but in the end Ken Ohka and Chikara were held back and forced to watch Osamu Namiguchi pin Shota. They were then put in Sharpshooters while Namiguchi taunted Ohka. Namiguchi also had a surprise for everyone. “Wild Thing” played and Atsushi Onita appeared! Onita talked to Ohka about Ganpuro’s first Korakuen Hall show on 2nd October. Onita brought up the possibility of him against Ohka happening on the show. Ohka excitedly agreed to it although it wasn’t booked. All that is confirmed for now is Onita will be at the Korakuen show. Ohka was then asked what will happen if the show does not sell out. Ohka said he will quit Ganbare☆Wrestling!

The semi-main event was the last piece of research Shinichiro Tominaga needed for his upcoming match with Shiori Asahi. He got the win when he caught Marines Mask IV with the RKO in mid-air then tapped him out with the Just Facelock. Tominaga said he now knows all he needs to beat Asahi and he’ll show off his research on 2nd October.

Hong Kong Domestic Police Man was supposed to be in Match #2 but never showed up. Hong Kong Domestic Bank Robbery Man took his place. There was a lot of nonsense that I can’t make out because the translation says Hong Kong International Police Man over and over. The female one pinned the other two when she reversed a Double Brainbuster. Two two men were unmasked after the match and revealed to be Choun-Shiryu and Atsushi Maruyama.

Yumehito Imanari Vs Yukihiro Abe was a match between two good friends. When Imanari first entered the wrestling industry it was as a cameraman filming a documentary about Abe. It was a matc neither wanted to lose. At one point Imanari yelled “I will not shake” after taking Chops from Imanari. However Abe was having fun and yelled at Imanari to be more creative. Abe scored the win and was greeted by Ohka afterwards. Ohka told him he found his opponent for the Korakuen show. Out came Keisuke Ishii form DDT! Ohka noted that Abe has never beaten Ishii but does have two time limit draws against him. He is the perfect choice of a senior wrestler for Abe to wrestle.

It was announced that Minoru Fujita will graduate from Ganbare☆Wrestling at the 2nd October Korakuen Hall show. He wanted Bambi to team with him for his last match. It was decided their opponents will be Madoka and Fujita’s ex-wife Saki Maemura! She retired back in 2009 and married Fujita a year later but they divorced in 2015. She will even use Saki Fujita as her ring name! Ken Ohka said in order to turn Ganpuro into a major company like WWE they should allow family problems to be settled in the ring.

1. Regain The Smile Of Abe-chan!!: Yukihiro Abe defeated Rainbow Kawamura with the Endless Eight (9:54).
2. Rikidozan III Vs Veteran Mystery: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with the Cross Armbreaker (4:59).
3. World Of Professional Wrestling Strongest Animal Playoff: “Kotori” defeated J-Soul Pandita III IV with the Bird Ridge (7:45).
4. Rebound Queen Cherry Tree Runway Vs Transformation And Goddesses: Shinichiro Tominaga & Ai Shimizu defeated Yumehito Imanari & Emi Sakura when Tominaga pinned Imanari with the JK (7:45).
5. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Osamu Namiguchi, Shibata & GENTARO defeated Ken Ohka, Shota & Mitomi Masayuki when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanaila-X (16:45).

GENTARO surprised everyone in Ganbare☆Wrestling by joining forces with Osamu Namiguchi. GENTARO was working with Ganpuro as an official wrestling counselor for the roster but now he is helping Namiguchi prove his superiority over the company. They along with Shibata were able to do that in the 6-Man Tag main event. Shibata trapped his former Enjo-gun partner Mitomi Masayuki in a Cross Armbreaker while GENTARO did the same to Ken Ohka. That gave Namiguchi all the time in the world beat Shota with the Lanakila-X. Namiguchi added insult to injury by stepping on both Ohka and Imanari to celebrate while Shibata filmed it with his GoPro camera. Namiguchi then kicked Ohka while calling him a disposable wrestler who is only getting a KO-D Tag Team Title shot at Sumo Hall because of KAI. He said he might show up at Ganpuro’s Korakuen Hall show so he can see the company in its final days and tell them “Thank you for the good memories!” Namiguchi had crawled up from the bottom sipping mud to become a pro wrestler. He’s been kicked and beaten but guys like him, GENTARO and Shibata all know how it feels to be a pro wrestler unlike the people in Ganpuro who try to hog the glory. When they left, Ohka got back to his feet and was upset by the accusations. Ohka likes pro wrestling and he supports pro wrestling. Ganpuro is his wrestling life and he has precious support from guys like Shota, Masayuki and Shinichiro Tominaga to back him up. On 2nd October at Korakuen Hall Ohka will crush Namiguchi because Ganbare☆Wrestling is a major sport!

Ai Shimizu received a warm applause for her first match since getting married to DDT announcer Mic Inoue. Yumehito Imanari congratulated her before their tag match but then used his speech as an excuse to to flirt with Emi Sakura. She was left insulted by his lines and began the attack to start the match. Sakura then took pause to congratulate Shimizu before going back to attacking Imanari who wouldn’t take her seriously. Imanari was left to regret his behavior when Sakura was able to put him in a Romero Special. Shinichiro Tominaga later finished the job with a Reverse DDT and the JK. Sakura said she was mortified by Imanari’s behavior but he did show some ability out there. Imanari proclaimed his love for her and thinks them getting married would be the best news in pro wrestling. Shimizu was impressed at how fast men seem to fall for Sakura and she should be happy. Sakura was just annoyed by the whole thing.

Ohka approached Tominaga after his match to announce his opponent at Korakuen Hall. Tominaga will face Shiori Asahi from K-DOJO! Tominaga has a brief history with Asahi going back to his college wrestling club days. Five years later he now has a chance to see how he’s grown in comparison.

In the opening match Yukihiro Abe was given a chance to have some fun after spending months as an angst ridden sidekick to Minoru Fujita. He came out wearing a Haruhi Suzumiya costume to fit in with his opponent Rainbow Kawamura. However the match became less friendly when both wrestlers pulled each other’s wigs off and threw them at each other. Abe applied a Sleeper Hold but Kawamura pulled out an adult manga to distract him and escape. There was more nonsense with Abe getting stripped down to his blue striped underwear as the match progressed. Kawamura sprayed him in the face with disinfectant but during a scramble of pinning holds Abe got the three count with a Backslide he calls the Endless Eight. Thankfully this Endless Eight only lasts three seconds. After the match Abe told everyone that cosplaying and being a transvestite are two different things. He was also in a rush because he wanted to go to Comiket and buy a fanzine from his favourite writer.

1. USA! USA! USA!: Shota defeated American Balloon with a Sunset Flip (6:40).
2. Stop It A Veteran Of The Mystery!: Mars Spector defeated Mitomi Masayuki & Rainbow Kawamura when Spector submitted Masayuki with an Achiiles Tendon Hold and Kawamura with a Guillotine Choke at the same time (6:28).
3. Transformation And Goddesses, Encounter Gatomubu!: Yukihiro Abe & Sayaka Obihiro defeated Shinichiro Tominaga & Ai Shimizu when Abe pinned Tominaga with the Abe☆Jienotsu☆Clutch (12:17).
4. Wrestling & Martial Arts DX: Takafumi Ito & Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Chikara & Yumehito Imanari when Katsumura submitted Imanari with the Ninja Choke (15:59).
5. Is He A True Friend?: Ken Ohka defeated Minoru Fujita with the Spear Of Flame (21:34).

The grudge between Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita in Ganbare☆Wrestling has been surrounding them for over a year. Alliances, betrayals and a lot of spilt blood had come between the two. When Tomodachi-gun collapses Fujita claimed he turned over a new leaf. Again. He and Ohka faced off one more time to settle their issues and neither of them held back. Fujita was busted open early on when Ohka hit him with a chair during a ringside brawl. Fujita retaliated by targeting Ohka’s foot and bashing it against the ring post. He countered the Spear Of Flame into a Cradle for a nearfall but Ohka hit the move on his second attempt. Fujita locked in a Triangle Choke but Ohka reached the ropes and then hit a Dragon Suplex. Ohka hit the Spear Of Flame again and that got him the three count.

Despite all the bad blood between the two, Ohka just wanted Fujita to be his friend again. Fujita said his plan to take over Ganpuro took the over a year to execute and all came down to this match. And it ended in failure. Fujita admitted defeat and admitted he lost to the pro wrestler, Ken Ohka. Fujita was about to leave until he remembered something. Both Hi69 and Madoka left him high and dry last month. He knows they are still enemies of Ganpuro. Ohka offered Fujita to continue wrestling in Ganpuro and this time he can do it as his friend. Ohka also wants Fujita to wrestle at Ganpuro’s Korakuen Hall debut in October. Fujita gave a wry smile and walked away. He then stopped himself and accepted the offer. He was going to go there as the “ace” anyway.

Takafumi Ito & Shuichiro Katsumura didn’t get along during their tag match with Power Of Dreams. When one was in the ring wrestling the other would yell instructions and criticisms at the wrestling holds. Katsumura got the submission win but when he tried to shake Ito’s hand after the match, Ito grabbed his arm and put him in an Armlock.

Yukihiro Abe is back in Ganpuro’s good graces after he left Tomodachi-gun. Although he lost to Fujita last week he was back to winning ways here with Sayaka Obihiro. Ohka watched them team together and afterwards told Obihiro she passed the test to prove she is a suitable replacement in Ganpuro for Emi Sakura. In Ohka’s eyes Obihiro and Sakura are equals. Obihiro then told Ohka that Sakura will indeed come to Ganpuro soon. If this place is good enough for Obihiro then it’s good enough for Sakura too.

1. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs OSAKA Joshi Wrestling: Sawako Shimono & Rina Yamashita defeated Mitomi Masayuki & Chikara when Yamashita pinned Masayuki with a Samson Clutch Cutback (8:36).
2. Hybrid☆Ganbare: Takaku Fuke defeated Takafumi Ito with a Cross Armbreaker (10:59).
3. Ganpuro In OSAKA Special Tag Match: Shota & TORU defeated YO-HEY & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shota submitted Tominaga with the Sharpshooter (14:12).
4. Yukihiro Abe Tomodachi-gun Graduation Test: Minoru Fujita defeated Yukihiro Abe with the Tombstone Piledriver (17:42).
5. Ganpuro Hardcore Tag Match: Ken Ohka & Ai Shimizu defeated Yumehito Imanari & Bambi when Ohka pinned Imanari with the Spear Of Flame (12:51).

Each wrestler in the main event brought along a weapon to use in the Hardcore Match. Yumehito Imanari brought a bag of candy to slam his opponents onto, Bambi had her trusty whip, Ai Shimizu carried a kunai and Ken Ohka found a cushion. Needless to say the ring was left in a mess by the end of the match. Ohka Headbutted Imanari, gave him a Brainbuster onto the candy and finished him off with the Spear Of Flame. Ohka was pleased with Ganbare☆Wrestling’s first show in Osaka and marvelled at how far Ganpuro has grown in its 3 years of existence.

Yukihiro Abe got his opportunity to show he was no longer under Minoru Fujita’s control. The former Tomodachi-gun partners held nothing back as they fought each other. Abe reversed a Tombstone Piledriver but Fujita kicked out and succeeded with a second Tombstone to win. Fujita tried to be sympathetic to the Osaka crowd by calling Abe his friend. He claimed he was selfish to split up Tomodachi-gun and it was painful to see how Abe was now all alone. He was responsible for Abe’s growth as a wrestler but he accepts that Abe may not be suitable for the wrestling life. If Abe only wants to wrestle for fun from now on then so be it. Fujita then bid him adieu.

5. KING OF DDT 2016 Contestant Final: Kota Umeda defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Umeda Driver I (13:57).
6. Daisuke Sasaki & Mad Polly defeated Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita when Sasaki pinned Honda with La Mistica Crossface Lock (17:48).

At the beginning of the show Konosuke Takeshita told everyone that his KO-D Openweight Title shot on 29th May will also be happening on his 21st birthday. His goal is to become the youngest KO-D Champion in history. Daisuke Sasaki then entered the ring in a disguise to attack Takeshita. He kicked him below the belt but was then chased off by Antonio Honda. Sasaki Low Blowed Takeshita again in the main event. He then submitted Honda with La Mistica Crossface Lock. Sasaki tried to give Takeshita the Vietnam Driver II after the match but Takeshita escaped and knocked the champion out of the ring with a Lariat.

Kota Umeda is the first name entering the King Of DDT 2016 after he defeated Kouki Iwasaki in a qualifying match. Umeda was eliminated in the first round of last year’s tournament. He does not want a repeat of that.

Keisuke Ishii was glad to have wrestled with his Monthly Young Communication companions one more time. He was especially happy to be in the ring with Yukihiro Abe again since he wanted to wrestle him before Team Drift disbands. Abe said he would like to wrestle in DDT again if the opportunity is there.

The team of Danshoku Dino, Joey Ryan & Makoto Oishi has been described by Dino as the World’s Nudist Beach (now there’s an image to stick in your head). Late in the match Dino and Oishi positioned their bare asses selves on the turnbuckles and formed what they call the Rafflesia Flower. Ryan stuck his lolly pop into Dino’s ass and then ducked a Big Boot from Saki Akai. Her foot got trapped in between Dino & Oishi’s asses and Ryan stuck the lolly into her mouth. Ryan then rolled Akai into a pin to win the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title! After intermission Ryan talked with Amon Tsurumi and Guanchulo in the ring so he could understand the championship’s rules. Both Guanchulo and Akai tried to ambush him to win the belt but they ended up fighting each other. Akai knocked out Guanchulo with a Big Boot but Ryan then stuck another lolly into her mouth and Super Kicked her to escape with the title.

Dino & Oishi were told after their match that they will get an All Asia Tag Team Titles shot on 12th June. That is the same date as the King Of DDT 2nd Round. Oishi agreed to take the title shot and remove himself from the tournament. Dino decided to call his team with Oishi the Guname Express. He thinks it is a fitting name for them going after the All Asia Tag Titles.

Gota Ihashi’s challenger in the King Of Dark Title match wasn’t decided until right before the match. Both Tsurumi and Sanshiro Takagi were too busy to book a wrestler in the match. They both panicked and told Yumehito Imanari to be challenger. Imanari came down in his normal clothes and suddenly found himself wrestling Ihashi. He was on the verge of winning until a German Suplex went wrong. Ihashi was too heavy and landed on top of Imanari. Ihashi then hit a top rope Moonsault to win and transfer the dark match title to Imanari. Takagi handed Imanari the belt and congratulated him for a good match. He then told him to get back to work.

Tsurumi gave out details about this year’s King Of DDT tournament. It will be a 16-man elimination tournament featuring the DDT roster and the full line-up will be announced on the 29th May Korakuen Hall show. Daisuke Sasaki, Konosuke Takeshita, Danshoku Dino, Makoto Oishi and whoever holds the remaining Right To Challenge Contracts that day are not allowed to enter the tournament. Round 1 takes place on 5th June, Round 2 on 12th June and the remaining rounds on 28th June.

3. Special Dream Match: Viper defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Viper Bomb (9:10).
4. Ganpuro Vs Tomodachi-gun: Ken Ohka, Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Minoru Fujita, Madoka & Yukihiro Abe when Tominaga pinned Abe with the JK (16:25).

The battle for Yukihiro Abe continued in the main event. Tomodachi-gun fought dirty and used referee distractions to their advantage but Ken Ohka kept trying to convince Abe to come to his senses. The distraction allowed Shinichiro Tominaga to catch Abe off guard and hit the JK for the win. Ohka and Minoru Fujita used Abe in a tug of was afterwards but Ohka let go when he realised he was hurting him. Tominaga introduced himself to Fujita as the KAIENTAI Killer because he hates KAIENTAI! He challenged Fujita to a match but Shuichiro Katsumura also demanded to be in the ring with Fujita. It was brought up that Ganbare☆Wrestling is holding two shows in one day on 23rd April. Fujita said he will fight Tominaga on the afternoon show and then Katsumura in a tag match on the evening show. Ohka nominated himself as Katsumura’s tag partner.

Yumehito Imanari wanted to start off his match with Viper on friendly terms so he tried to hug her. Viper refused to let it happen and the match quickly went outside the ring. Viper lifted up Imanari and gave him a Torture Rack by the ring entrance. In the ring she gave him a Bearhug and a Figure 4 Necklock. Imanari’s emotions switched between joy and terror. When Imanari was on the attack he tried a German Suplex but was crushed under Viper’s weight. Despite suffering defeat, Imanari was fine with what happened in the match.

The World’s Strongest Phantom Rumble was filled with oddities and other silly looking wrestlers. Many were just the same four or five wrestlers wearing different costumes including Yumehito Imanari dressed as Superman and somebody in a Spiderman costume. Even J-Soul Pandita III IV got in on the act a few times. Due to a couple of double eliminations and self eliminations the ring was empty when the final entrant Potato Head Sera entered so she was declared the winner. Sera then revealed her real identity, she is Risa Sera from Ice Ribbon.

Enjo-gun entered the ring to the Darth Vader theme song and called themselves the Darth Vader of pro wrestling. They then had an argument with Chikara over Darth Vader. Chikara & Shuichiro Katsumura won the match but brawled with Enjo-gun afterwards.
