5. Grasp The Best WONDERFUL LIFE! Iwasaki’s Greatest! – Southside Wrestling World Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Beast Bomber (16:41)
*V6 for Shigehiro Irie.

Shigehiro Irie’s tour of Japan with the Southside Wrestling World Title has lead to a string of defences in a short period of time. The sixth and latest defence was against Kouki Iwasaki at Ganbare☆Wrestling. Irie said that he will be going back to Europe with the title but he hopes to wrestle Iwasaki again. However Ken Ohka entered the ring and demanded a shot at the title on 17th July. Irie said he won’t be in Japan that day. Ohka then asked for a match in August. Irie couldn’t commit so Ohka then told Irie to challenge him the next time he comes back to Japan. Irie then suddenly knocked out Ohka with the Beast Bomber.

The combined powers of the GPW alliance succeeded in beating True GUTS-gun in a violent clash. Yumehito Imanari came out wearing a leather jacket similar to Jon Moxley’s “MOX” jacket but with “SEX” on the back instead. Ohka was busted open but with the help of Imanari & Miss Mongol, was able to pin Shota with the Thunder Fire Power Bomb. After the match Ohka demanded Guts Ishijima to bring back the retired GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles that used to be defended in Guts World until its closure. Ohka explained that life is a fight with guts. If True GUTS-gun do not want to be in a title match then they have no guts! Ishijima accepted the demand and will bring back the titles on 17th July.

Hiroshi Yamato challenged Shuichiro Katsumura for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title. Yamato said he has now wrestled in over 50 different wrestling promotions and if he becomes the Independent Jr. Champion he can then raise the belt’s prestige and also the wrestling scene at large by defending it in various different promotions.

Champ Phoenix made the mistake of taking Choun-Shiryu lightly, treating him as an easy opponent and leaving his guard open so Shiryu could pin him with La Magistral Cradle. Shiryu told Phoenix that he’s been living in Japan for 15 years so he should have been treated with respect.

The rookie Shuhei Washida is showing more aggression in his matches. He refused to shake Mitomi Masayuki’s hand before their match and even had to be held back by the referee at one point. However Masayuki took over and used a modified Camel Clutch called the Baby Clutch to make Washida submit.

Masayuki announced before the show that he is forming his own promotion called P.P.P. Tokyo. He said he learned to work hard in Ganpro and will use that spirit to make this new project succeed. P.P.P. will have a business relationship with Ganpro. The first sign of this is Ganpro hosting a match at the debut P.P.P. show in Shinjuku FACE on 30th September.

5. Inevitability Or Fate’s Mischief? Team Drift And DNA Clash In Ganpro!: Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase when Ishii pinned Watase with the Flying Kneel Kick (18:14).

Keisuke Ishii noticed that the main event ended after 18 minutes and 14 seconds, the same exact amount of time as his match with Tetsuya Endo for the KO-D Openweight Title a few weeks ago. He also said it was so much fun and exciting to wrestle Shigehiro Irie again. He now wants to wrestle him one on one.

The new war between Ganbare☆Wrestling and True GUTS-gun went ahead today. Guts Ishijima & Shota won the first battle over Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura in the middle of the show but they made their presence felt again later. When the show ended, Ohka’s speech in front of the fans was cut short by an attack by GUTS-gun. Ishijima was about to give Ohka the Facebuster when Yumehito Imanari & Miss Mongol came to the rescue. With the enemy sent fleeing, Imanari called for an alliance between Ganpro and Pocchari Joshi. Together they can be called GPW! The three challenged Guts-gun to a trios match on 16th June. Ishijima accepted with Shota and Masked Mystery as his partners. Ishijima also said that Yoshimura Pro Wrestling is on his side in this war.

Imanari’s Pocchari Joshi project will show up again at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 20th August.

*V1 for Sendai Girls.
7. “Niigata Celebrities!” Super Sasadango Machine Local Triumph! Niigata Special Tag Match: HARASHIMA & Antonio Honda defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Super Sasadango Machine when Honda submitted Sasadango with the Manjigatame (12:51).

Antonio Honda admitted he was the unpopular wrestler today because he submitted Super Sasadango Machine in front of his hometown crowd. Sasadango unmasked himself during an Elbow Smash exchange with Honda. But when he went for the Vertical Drop Lehmann Shock, Honda countered it into an Octopus Hold for the immediate tapout. Honda got a cold response from the audience afterwards so he gave Sasadango the microphone. That woke the crowd up and they cheered for Sasadango. He thanked the other wrestlers for wrestling him today, the DDT Extreme Champion Honda, “Mr. Ace” HARASHIMA and the “one man masterpiece” Konosuke Takeshita. Sasadango said he was suffering from burnout because of the Muscle show at Sumo Hall earlier this year. He wanted HARASHIMA to finish the speech but he and the others convinced Sasadango to do it himself.

The Sendai Girls still hold the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles after beating Saki Akai’s all star team of joshi wrestlers. Akai’s downfall came when she tried to do the Quetzalcoatl on Meiko Satomura. The move was cut off by Chihiro Hashimoto’s Lariat. DASH Chisako then hit a Diving Foot Stomp onto Akai. Hikaru Shida came to the rescue by blocking Satomura’s Avalanche Brainbuster but it was short lived. Hashimoto got rid of Asuka with the Albright German Suplex while Satomura pinned Akai with the Death Valley Bomb. Satomura gave Akai a disappointing look as Akai’s team left the ring.

ALL OUT then entered the ring to meet with the Sendai Girls. Yuki Iino faced off with Hashimoto until Takeshita told him to calm down. Takeshita said the two sides are currently 1-1 in their 6-Man Tag Title matches so it was time for a final challenge to settle this grudge. He announced Shunma Katsumata will be back at the end of May so the challenge should be a series of four singles matches as well as the deciding trios match for the championship. Satomura asked Takeshita if he was really up to the challenge then agreed to the stipulation. Iino told Hashimoto that he is the strongest primate and this time he will be throwing her around, not vice versa like last time.

Yukio Sakaguchi’s tunnel vision is making him vulnerable. His focus on trying to choke out Tetsuya Endo with the Sleeper Hold left him open to attacks from the other DAMNATION wrestlers a bunch of times. Sakaguchi did send Mad Paulie into unconsciousness with the move but when he got the move on Endo again, Daisuke Sasaki dropkicked him away. Sasaki & Endo were able to team together and pin MAO while Sakaguchi was out of the way.

Match #4 featured a special guest. The allegedly famous photographer Ki Tsurumi was invited to take high quality pictures in order to prove that pro wrestling is art. He was given permission to stand inside the ring so he could take pictures from whatever angle he desired. Yumehito Imanari got so into it he stripped down to his underwear to give Tsurumi something more provocative. Mizuki Watase & Yuki Ueno hated this because they wanted to take pictures of exciting wrestling. They argued until Makoto Oishi rolled Watase into the Jikiden Tornado Clutch to pin him. They all got together for a group photo after the match but Tsurumi saw Hiroshi Yamato across the room and chased after him for a sexy picture.

5. Dangan Senshi, Attack On Ganpro!: Masato Tanaka defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Sliding D (15:38).

Masato Tanaka thanked Yumehito Imanari for inviting him to wrestle in Ganbare☆Wrestling today. He brought up memories of Imanari training in one of the ZERO1 dojos long ago. Imanari explained to the fans that although he was never registered to ZERO1 he did get permission from them to train in their dojo. The two agreed to having another match sometime and Imanari says he is now a student of the DANGAN GYM.

Normally Shota is a Ganpro wrestler but today he represented GUTS along with Guts Ishijima & Masked Mystery. They were victorious over the Ganpro side but Ken Ohka felt something was off about Ishijima’s intentions. Ohka is trying to make pro wrestling a major sport and he wants to unify the indies to do it. But Guts World has closed down and it’s replacement Pro Wrestling GOING-UP didn’t last either. Now that Guts Ishijima is in Ganbare☆Wrestling will he quit here too? Just what is it about Ishijima and wrestling promotions that involve the letter G? Ishijima said he loves indie wrestling and he will be the one to unify it. He promised to come back to Ganpro next month to continue the rebirth of GUTS.

Chikara stood in his Mitsuo Momota’s corner so he could his father face Naoshi Sano one on one. But during the match Sano went out of the ring and dared Chikara to hit him. When Chikara wouldn’t, Sano knocked him down. He then made Momota hit the referee by accident with a Lariat. When that happened Sano brought in a chair but Chikara cut him off with the Saber Chop, allowing Momota to pin him when the ref recovered.

Keisuke Ishii & Kouki Iwasaki Vs Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase will take place on 2nd June.

Beyond The Chubby ~ The Value Of Mixed Public-Private Road: Yumehito Imanari Vs Yuna Manase

1. Special Pocha Libre ~First Impact By Pretty Pochadoras~: Beauty Suzuki defeated Da Pump Matsumoto with a School Boy (7:52).
2. Second Pocha Libre Match ~ Pocchari-gun Vs Mad Slender-gun Innocence RIZAP War: Miss Mongolia & Busses Mongolia defeated Moeka Haruhi & HARUKAZE whem Miss pinned HARUKAZE with the Senton (11:37).
3. Beyond The Chubby ~ The Value Of Mixed Public-Private Road: Yumehito Imanari defeated Yuna Manase with the Chubby Knee Kick (15:35).

In a show to celebrate big women, Yumehito Imanari booked a match between himself and Yuna Manase in the main event. At the start of the show Manase returned to her previous idol name Yuna Suzuki for a cheerleader dance. When she finished the dance she shook Imanari’s hand then gave him a Stunner. She then took off the costume and told Imanari she was going to take their match seriously.

Imanari described his match with Manase as the best feeling. When Manase lost she realised that she will never be the ace for companies like Tokyo Joshi Pro, Stardom, Actwres girl’Z or even this Pocchari Joshi offshoot Imanari has created. She is comfortable with her body size but she wanted to win so badly today. Imanari cheered Manase up by telling her how loved she is by everyone in the audience! Everyone in the show got together and sang “Let It Snow” while confetti shot everywhere. When it was over Imanari said everyone loves Manase because she is her own personality and that is what makes her an ace.

Nonoko was part of the show performing with comedy idol Metropoli-chan V. She also announced Manase’s ring entrance.
