    WRESTLE-1 news for April 18, 2014

    imageFollowing his win at yesterday’s show, Hiroshi Yamato announced that he would be going after a championship in the EWP Intercontinental belt which is currently held by Leon Van Gasteren. Well today W-1 announced that Gasteren will indeed be coming to Japan to with the belt as well as another EWP wrestler in Ecki Eckstein.
    Both have been announced to be competing in W-1, at this time, for the first time on April 27 to the May 4 “Golden Week” shows.

    imageW-1 also announced the early card for the upcoming Tokyo Dome City Hall show on May 4.

    Manabu Soya addressed the press following the outcome of yesterday’s show between him and KAI. Soya declared that what he said will stand and that if he wins “KAI will have to resign from W-1” but if KAI wins “he will be exiled from competing in the main events”. Which is indeed a change of words from yesterday, giving Soya more of a logical edge, but still not a position that the “self-proclaimed ace” KAI will want to be in.

    Side note: To continue on with the ZERO1 vs. Soya situation. Soya made a bid to become the matchmaker for ZERO1. Now we wait and see whose nerve gets struck on this one…maybe Takuya Sugawara since he is the current ZERO1 matchmaker.

    Yasufumi Nakanoueno & Seiki Yoshioka have earned themselves a KO-D Tag title shot against K-DOJO’s Yuji Hino & HIROKI after an upset win, flash pin, over the duo at yesterday’s Korakuen Hall show. Though the victory was short lived as “the powerhouse” Hino took out both W-1 stars in anger.

    Then, as noted above, Hiroshi Yamato will be getting an EWP Intercontinental title match against Leon Von Gasteren. Yamato added that he is aiming to claim the belt and make it the junior belt of W-1.
    image

    Below is the announced card at this time…

    WRESTLE-1 “WRESTLE-1 TOUR 2014 Cherry blossom”, 5/4/2014 [Sun] 16:00 @ Tokyo Dome City Hall in Tokyo

    ~ If Yamato wins, he aims to face someone overseas.
    ~ The rules of the match appear to be that of a flag match, as in the winner is the one who holds the flag.
    Winner: Yamato (7:00) grabbed the flag.
    ~ Miyamoto took Yamato out with a German Suplex after Yamato grabbed the flag.
    ~ CD Debut Decision was announced (?). Yamato then stated that on the next big show on 5/4 at TDC Hall that he will challenge for the EWP Intercontinental Championship. A European based promotion from what I can gather.

    Update: The EWP stands for European Wrestling Promotion out of Germany. Leon Van Gasteren is the current Intercontinental Champion and will be coming to W-1 to face Yamato.
    The CD part was related to Yamato’s passion outside of wrestling with music and the “music” CD he plans on releasing.

    image~ KAI accidentally hit Kondo, setting up Kono to then get the victory.
    ~ KAI stated that he is sorry for the mishap. But Kaz & Kondo were not having any part of it and left the ring with a scornful look.
    ~ Manabu Soya, matchmaker, then came out to question KAI’s screw-up. This would infuriate KAI and the seconds at ringside had to pull the two away from one another. KAI stated that he beats Soya that this “shady” matchmaking stops, but if he loses that he will quit W-1.
    ~ The two would continue their argument as KAI was pulled out of the ring.
    ~ It appears a singles match has been setup for the TDC Hall show on May 5.

    TAKA Michinoku announced today that the popular TAKA & Taichi Self-Produce show will be making a return May 22.Even though their “FINAL” produce show was held on March 21st, TAKA made an announcement that their show will be labeled this time around as “revenge”. As well as the announcement of this show came a couple matches, as both TAKA & Taichi will be in singles action as they are facing off against Gedo and Jado in the double main event. With the matches also comes some big stipulations as well for the future of their produce shows even more potentially so for their days as a tag team. If TAKA & Taichi win their matches, their produce shows will be completely revived and will once more become a normal thing, but if either happens to lose they will be forced to disband as a tag team all together. TAKA & Taichi Produce REVENGE, 5/22/2014 [Thu] 19:00 @ Shinjuku FACE in Tokyo(-) Taichi vs. Jado(-) TAKA Michinoku vs. Gedo
