Shuichiro Katsumura has been demanding Ganbare☆Wrestling to put him into a real fight so Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari tried to give him what he wanted. Unfortunately for them, Katsumura & Takeshi Okada were far too much for them to handle. Katsumura caught Ohka in a Sleeper Hold while Okada bombarded Imanari with German Suplexes until he tapped him out to an Armlock. Katsumura told Ohka afterwards that he is different from the bad guys Ohka had fought in the past. The strength Katsumura has is real strength. Imanari responded that he will continue to fight until he wins. He will even train at Katsumura’s gym if he has to! Imanari challenged Katsumura & Okada to a rematch on 11th February but Okada is already booked on a FREEDOMS show that day. They agreed to a match on 11th March instead. But Katsumura does have a partner for 11th February. Out came a mysterious wrestler wearing a Tiger Mask. He attacked Ohka and Imanari with Thrust Kicks and Frog Splashes. Katsumura told Ohka to do his best next month then left with the mystery Tiger Mask.
They weren’t kidding when Chikara & Kaho Kobayashi were being advertised as the Last Jedi team. Both of them came out wearing robes and carrying lightsabers. Kobayashi was also wearing a Darth Vader helmet and a chestpiece that was handmade by her parents. They used the Force to mixed results. Sometimes Shinichiro Tominaga & HARUKAZE were knocked back and other times they just stood there as if nothing happened. Kobayashi also told HARUKAZE she was her father. The mind games worked because HARUKAZE was hesitant to attack her from that point on. That allowed Kobayashi to Cradle HARUKAZE for the three count.
Yukihiro Abe was originally supposed to fight Gota Ihashi but Ihashi pulled out of the show earlier in the week after some negative comments by Riki Choshu gave him an identity crisis. Abe’s new opponent was Space Galaxy Warrior Andros and the spaceman had a secret to tell. Yukihiro Abe is not Abe’s real name. His real name is Cosmic Galactic Warrior ABE! Abe told Andros to knock it off because this wasn’t a SECRET BASE show. Abe beat Andros with a Half Nelson Chicken Wing submission hold. After the match Andros told ABE that Earth has been protected and they would meet again at SECRET BASE tomorrow. Abe accepted the challenge.
The debuting Shuhei Washida took on Ken Ohka for his first pro wrestling match. Washida passed the Ganpuro audition back in February last year and has been training ever since. He is going through the black trunks treatment with no music or fancy entrance for when he climbed into the ring. Ohka had control for most of the match but Washida showed some fire when he struck Ohka with a series of Middle Kicks. Ohka cut him off with a Brainbuster and made him tap to a Half Crab. Washida got chants from the audience afterwards. In his backstage interview, Washida said he became a pro wrestler so he could have pride and confidence in himself while becoming stronger.
Some matches for Ganpuro’s upcoming shows were announced during the opening messages. Shinichiro Tominaga Vs MEN’S Teioh will take place on 11th February and HARUKAZE Vs Miyako Matsumoto will happen on 11th March in Osaka. Also on the Osaka show is Ken Ohka Vs Magnitude Kishiwada! Ohka thinks Osaka is a city that is vital for Ganpuro’s growth so he must beat one of Osaka’s strongest to claim the city.
