1. FUMA defeated Takato Nakano with a Crab Hold (8:39).
2. Lawyer Aims For Best Stretchman V3!: Best Stretchman V3 defeated Gouma Ryu with a Camel Stretch (9:05).
3. Yasu Urano & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi & SAGAT when Tsukamoto pinned SAGAT with the Zudon (13:44).
4. Cavalry Vs Sportiva Army: Shinya Ishida & Fuminori Abe defeated Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu when Abe pinned Nakatsu with a Cradle (14:26).
5. Isami Kodaka defeated Yusuke Kubo with a Backslide Pin (29:33).

Midway through the main event Isami Kodaka decided to wrestle barefoot. He also removed his arm bands. Yusuke Kubo saw what he was doing and decided to do the same with his boots and elbow pads. The match came close to finishing with a time limit draw but Kodaka used a Backslide to pin Kubo in the last 30 seconds. The two shook hands and hugged each other afterwards.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi is still injured so Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi took his place in Match #3. He offered a handshake to Yasu Urano and told him “I respect you!” in English. But when Urano went to shake it, Ryuichi pulled his hand back and yelled “Woooooooo!” SAGAT ended up dropping the fall to Takumi Tsukamoto.

There was confusion between Best Stretchman V3 and Gouma Ryu over what their match would be. Stretchman thought it was a stretching exhibition while Ryu thought Stretchman was being put on trial. There was nobody around to be the prosecutor so Ryu decided it would be a civil trial. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi appeared all upset that his shoulder injury is preventing him from wrestling at an upcoming All Japan show (he really has bad luck with that company). Everything makes his shoulder hurt from feeling the wind blow against it to drinking alcohol. Stretchman ignored Hiroshi’s complaints and began exercising. Ryu stopped him and accused Stretchman of injuring Hiroshi during their match on 23rd August. As such, Stretchman owed Hiroshi money to pay for his damage. Stretchman wanted to prove that his stretching exercises couldn’t have injured Hiroshi and opted to give Ryu a demonstration to prove it. He put Ryu in a Camel Stretch and made him submit. Ryu was sore but he wasn’t injured by the move so Stretchman was declared not guilty.

A draw was held to determine the playoff bracket for tomorrow’s one day Lottery Tag Team Tournament. The first opening round match is Takato Nakano & Takumi Tsukamoto Vs Best Stretchman V3 & Yusuke Kubo. The winners face Yasu Urano & FUMA in the semi-final. The other opening round match is Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT Vs Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Isami Kodaka. The winners fight Ryuichi Sekine & Gouma Ryu in the other semi-final.

6. Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryucihi (c) defeated Yusuke Kubo with the Perfect Five (18:49).

In the battle between USA and Heavy Metal, USA won. Trans-Am ★ Ryucihi is still the Union MAX Champion after beating Yusuke Kubo. He survived an Arm Trap Figure Four Leg Lock by nudging his body over to the ropes then cut down Kubo with Short Arm Lariats until the Perfect Five finish. Ryuichi called Kubo the strongest technician in BASARA but he was not strong enough. Isami Kodaka came out and challenged Ryuichi to a title match at Korakuen Hall on 1st October. Ryuichi accepted the challenge and shook Kodaka’s hand. But Ryuichi then said if he beats Kodaka, he will take over BASARA. Kodaka was taken aback by the stipulation but agreed to it. The Korakuen show is his 15th Anniversary and he will fight with all 15 years of his power to protect BASARA and become the champion!

Isami Kodaka Vs Kenshin Chikano was treated as the final match in the BASARA Vs Dove Pro feud. Both sides agreed that there was going to be no decisive winner anytime soon so this match would be the end and then everyone could move on to new directions. Kodaka got the win with the Isamuashi Zan. Kodaka and Gunso argued afterwards over whether or not this means BASARA won the feud.

Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi had to pull out of the show because of a dislocated shoulder. SAGAT took his place in Match #4. Takumi Tsukamoto lost the match for his team and afterwards said he wanted revenge on the Dove Pro team. However BASARA’s feud with Dove Pro is now over after today. So Tsukamoto said he will bring in some old friends to help him fight Dove Pro at the 1st October Korakuen show.

After Match #3, “brother” YASSHI praised Ryota Nakatsu inbetween a bunch of swear words. He described Nakatsu as a “blonde haired bastard” and a wonderful wrestler who stood out at the Dove Pro shows in Osaka and Hiroshima two weeks ago. YASSHI thinks Nakatsu has a promising future.

5. Keihan Wrestling Dispute 2017: Naoki Tanizaki defeated Ryota Nakatsu with the Implant (12:35).
6. Trans-Am ★ Family Vs IRON PRIEST: FUMA, HUB & Yusuke Kubo defeated Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi, Trans-Am ★ Shinya & Trans-Am ★ Abe when Kubo pinned Abe with the Death Metal Roll (14:58).

Yusuke Kubo continues to lead IRON PRIEST to victory over the Trans-Am ★ Family. This time his Death Metal Roll put Trans-Am ★ Abe down for the count. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi was furious with Abe over the result and fired him from the team after the match. This is the second time Abe has been fired from the Family. FUMA told everyone that “KUBO-METAL” will be the next person to challenge Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi for the Union MAX Title. When BASARA returns to Osaka, “KUBO-METAL” will be the champion! Keep on rockin’!

Naoki Tanizaki continued to attack Ryota Nakatsu after their match until Isami Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine came to the rescue. Gunso & Kabuki Kid then ran in to back up Tanizaki. Kodaka said that BASARA lost their matches to Dove Pro today but BASARA will get their chance at revenge next month. Today was a declaration of war! Kodaka pointed out he is affiliated with Dragon Gate but he sides with Dove Pro in this feud.

Chairs and a ladder were used a lot in the match between Tsukasaga-gun and Dove Pro. The end came when Gunso slammed Takumi Tsukamoto onto the ladder. Kabuki Kid then placed a chair on SAGAT and Gunso hit the Guillotine Drop to win the match. There will be more BASARA Vs Dove Pro matches down the line and Tsukamoto is looking forward to them. He is a death match wrestler more than a hardcore wrestler. He’s been in more dangerous matches than what Dove Pro are used to. Kabuki Kid describes himself & Gunso as Hardcore Craftsmen. They’re not scared of Tsukamoto & SAGAT.

Kuishinbo Kamen placed Gouma Ryu upside down against the turnbuckles in the Tree Of Woe position. Kamen then got knocked down and Ryu fell on top of him for the three count. Calling it a Moonsault is being very generous.

1. Fuminori Abe defeated Takato Nakano with an Armlock (8:47).
2. Reversal Pro Wrestling Trial: Gouma Ryu defeated Atsushi Maruyama and Yasu Urano when Ryu submitted Maruyama with a Reverse Cross Armbreaker (14:12).
3. Cavalry Vs Best Stretch Yoyogi Uehara Store: Ryuichi Sekine & Ryota Nakatsu defeated Tsutomu Oosugi & Best Stretchman V3 when Sekine submitted Stretchman with the Let’s Combine (11:24).
4. Hardcore Tag Match: Isami Kodaka & Takumi Tsukamoto defeated Gunso & SAGAT when Kodaka pinned SAGAT with the Isamuashi Zan (17:26).
5. Trans-Am ★ Family Vs IRON PRIEST: FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & Hagane defeated Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Trans-Am ★ Tanaka when Kubo pinned Ryuichi with the Death Metal Roll (16:28).

For the first time in BASARA, the unbeatable Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi has been pinned! Yusuke Kubo countered Ryuichi’s Perfect Five into the Death Metal Roll for the surprise three count, giving IRON PRIEST the win over Trans-Am ★ Family. The result gives Kubo a strong argument for getting a Union MAX Title shot. But somebody outside of the Trans-Am ★ Family doesn’t like that idea. Isami Kodaka earlier in the show declared his intentions of winning his belt back and he thinks he should get a shot before Kubo does. And since this is Kodaka’s company, his word is law! FUMA protested and said BASARA was created to give everyone freedom. Kodaka disagreed and said it was so he could be a dictator. FUMA then said Kubo has beaten Ryuichi while Kodaka hasn’t. Kodaka couldn’t argue against that and admitted he was being unfair. Kubo pinning Ryuichi is a big deal so that should be rewarded. Kodaka backed off so Kubo could declare himself the No. 1 Contender. Ryuichi’s response to Kubo was “OK. Understand. You are next!”

Kodaka is excited by the matches BASARA and Dove Pro are having together. He wants more crazy matches like the one they had today and is looking forward to the next bouts happening next month in Osaka and Hiroshima. However, that’s not all that Kodaka wants. He also declared his intentions to win back the Union MAX Title!

Yasu Urano was taken to court accused by Atsushi Maruyama of damaging DDT’s finances when he became a freelancer. He was questioned by Maruyama about why he left DDT. Urano gave the answer that he wants compete with various wrestlers around the scene. Maruyama didn’t believe him and is convinced Urano has a desire to destroy DDT. Ryuichi Sekine was brought in as a witness. He said he was thinking about quitting wrestling until Urano came to BASARA to fight him. Hagane was next and he said the same. As the questioning continued, Gouma Ryu was insulted when Maruyama said he is not a wrestler but a lawyer so he shouldn’t be standing inside the ring. Ryu snapped and put Matsuyama in a Cross Armbreaker, making him submit and ending the trial. Urano was declared innocent.

7. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Final – Union MAX Title: Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi (c) defeated FUMA with the Perfect Plex (17:19).
*V2 for Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi.

The final night of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament began with a suspenseful tiebreaker. Both Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and FUMA finished in a dead heat in their block. Their group match ended in a Double KO so neither could put in a rightful claim for who deserved the spot in the final more. So they had to fight each other again in a tiebreaker match. This time FUMA came out on top, wearing out Hiroshi with Buzzsaw Kicks and then finally finishing him off with the Jawbreaker kick.

The stakes were raised in the final when Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi agreed to put the Union MAX Title on the line against FUMA. After all, there was no clear challenger on the horizon for the champ after he swept through the competition in the group stage. The ring was surrounded by IRON PRIEST and the Trans-Am ★ Family. All of them were cheering for their wrestler to win. The champion was in trouble when FUMA countered the Perfect Five into the Metal Fire From Hell. The end appeared to be coming when FUMA went for the Jawbreaker but Ryuichi made him freeze by pointing at him and shouting “YOU!” FUMA snapped out and gave Ryuichi a High Kick then a Superplex. FUMA was on fire until Ryuichi stopped him in his tracks with a Lariat. Now Ryuichi was shaking the ropes in anticipation and he hit another Lariat for a nearfall. The end finally came when Ryuichi hit the Perfect Five and it was enough to pin FUMA for the three count.

Ryuichi happily accepted his 500,000 yen cash prize. He told FUMA he dislikes the Heavy Metal hand sign but he also doesn’t mind heavy metal music in general so they should wrestle again some time. He tried to walk towards FUMA for a handshake but stopped when SAGAT accidentally stepped on the microphone cable. Ryuichi and Hiroshi attacked SAGAT as punishment then went back to shake FUMA’s hand. The Trans-Am ★ Family declared “War is over. Love and peace.” However, Yusuke Kubo disagreed. He told the Family in English that the war is not over and IRON PRIEST won’t be shaking hands with them. IRON PRIEST will never give up! He challenged them to a match on 20th July. They agreed but first, Ryuichi is taking his prize money to Las Vegas.

Yasu Urano wanted to experience a Hardcore Match and by God he got what he wanted. Isami Kodaka brought out a ladder and set it up in the ring. Then when the match began everyone immediately brought in chairs and swung away at each other. Kodaka later busted him open with a chairshot. Takumi Tsukamoto fended off Kodaka & Ryuichi Sekine with his giant hammer. Kodaka then hit the Chair Assisted Diving Double Knee Drop on Tsukamoto. Urano broke the pin and DDT’d Kodaka onto the chair. Sekine wiped out Tsukamoto with a Topé Suicida while Kodaka hit Urano with a Shining Wizard. Kodaka climbed the ladder but Urano followed. The two exchanged strikes until Kodaka knocked Urano off the ladder. He then hit the Diving Double Knee Drop from the ladder to Urano. After that there was no way Urano could kick out. When the match was over Kodaka asked Urano if he enjoyed his first Hardcore Match. Urano said he did not take this match lightly and he wanted to do as well as SAGAT would. Urano then asked if he could continue to wrestle in BASARA, but no more Hardcore Matches. Kodaka brought up the Shinjuku Strongest Ground Budokai tournament. There have been two tournaments previously and they were won by Urano and Kodaka. So let’s do it again! Both of them announced they will enter the next Budokai tournament which will take place in Korakuen Hall instead of Shinjuku on 28th December. Naoki Tanizaki also threw his name into the hat when he found out about it.

Ryota Nakatsu’s plan to target Magnitude Kishiwada’s left arm didn’t work. His opponent was able to shrug off the damage and cut him off with a Lariat late in the match. He only got a nearfall with the Diving Body Press. When that didn’t work, Kishiwada put Nakatsu into a Single Leg Crab Hold and dragged him into the middle of the ring for the submission victory.

Takato Nakano stepped up to Naoki Tanizaki, throwing Chops when Tanizaki mocked him for being the “Youngster of BASARA”. Nakano kicked out of the Reverse Implant but fell to the normal version of the move. Nakano slapped the mat in disappointment after the match.

Yuko Miyamoto will be on the 1st October Korakuen Hall show. The event will celebrate Isami Kodaka’s 15th Anniversary in wrestling.

3. Yusuke Kubo (4)

5. Best Stretchman V3 (2)

1. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi (6)
-. FUMA (6)
3. Isami Kodaka (4)
-. Ryota Nakatsu (4)
5. SAGAT (0)
-. Gouma Ryu (0)

SAGAT is no closer to getting his first win in this year’s Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. He fell to Ryota Nakatsu in the main event. Technical wrestling defeated brute force in this contest. Nakatsu joked that his baseball practice at the Tokyo Dome earlier in the day helped him win the match. He now looks ahead to his final group match against Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi.

Cavalry’s success continued with Ryuichi Sekine beating Yusuke Kubo in the semi-main event. Sekine is currently undefeated with two matches left on his schedule.

While MC.33 and Trans-Am ★ Shinya were wrestling, Shinya asked what does the MC stand for? MC.33 said MCs are people who are familiar with music. Suddenly MC.33 transformed the wrestling match into an entrance music quiz. The Trans-Am ★ Family got the questions right and used the moves of Stone Cold and The Rock after correctly guessing their songs. Angry at losing, MC.33 brought out a samurai sword and sliced through the Trans-Am ★ Family. However they got back up as soon as they realised it was a fake sword. They knocked MC.33 out of the ring with a Big Boot and Shinya then pinned Fuminori Abe with the Δ Drive.

Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi is almost on the home clear with one match left for him to fight for in Block A. He added a submission move to his repertoire, the Trans-Am ★ Shooter. The rookie Takato Nakano had nowhere to go when he was locked in the move. The only opponent left for him is Ryuichi Sekine. And wouldn’t you know it, Sekine is the only one who can realistically catch up with him at this point.

FUMA came to the show to wrestle but Gouma Ryu wanted to talk about music instead. Ryu said he’s been listening to Dreams Come True and B’z because they make music that anyone can listen to. He wanted to know why FUMA likes heavy metal. FUMA said it is because of people like Ryu and he then attacked him to start the match. Ryu fought back by summoning the power of Tetsuya Komuro and other J-Pop artists. When the match reached its end, FUMA admitted that the music of B’z is close to metal so they’re ok. He then pinned Ryu with the Heavy Metal Anthem.

Best Stretchman V3 thought Takumi Tsukamoto was a monster fisherman because he uses the Fisherman Suplex. Tsukamoto proved him wrong by using the Dodon to beat him. Although he is out of the tournament, Tsukamoto wants to finish his run by beating Yusuke Kubo so he can finish with 6 points.

Isami Kodaka will hold an event celebrating his 15th Anniversary in wrestling at Korakuen Hall on 1st October. The show will feature wrestlers associated with Isami from all over the wrestling industry, not just BASARA.

The third show of the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ tournament was headlined by a rematch of last year’s final. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi defeated Isami Kodaka last year to win the tournament and repeated the success and was able to beat him again today as part of the group stage. Hiroshi told Kodaka afterwards that he has his respect but he has to win because he is the No. 1 Gaijin in BASARA!

It’s been a poor start to the tournament for Takumi Tsukamoto. First he loses to Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi, next he loses to Ryuichi Sekine. Two defeats in a row against arguably the two toughest wrestlers in Block A is not a good sign for Tsukamoto’s chances to finish in first. Sekine is in good spirits despite feeling in a lot of pain after the match. He thinks his match with Trans-Am ★ Ryuichi at the end of the group stage will determine who will win Block A.

Best Stretchman V3 continues to think his opponents are monsters and he is the superhero sent to vanquish them. His not so secret identity was exposed when Yusuke Kubo unmasked him to avoid the Best Stretch Bomb. Surprise, it’s Daichi Kazato! Kubo pinned him with a Gedo Clutch and Kazato hurriedly covered his face with a shirt to avoid being seen.

Gouma Ryu realised that trying to wrestle properly wasn’t going to work out for him. So inspired by his opponent Ryota Nakatsu, Ryu decided to study MMA to prepare for this match. After all, UFC is selling more PPVs than WWE nowadays and superstars like CM Punk and Batista made the jump over so why not him too? Ryu declared the match was now an MMA fight but the request was not granted. He tried to have an MMA fight anyway and tapped out to an Armlock.
