WRESTLE-1 [Sanada vs Daniels] results for April 17, 2014
WRESTLE-1 “TOUR 2014 Cherry blossom”, 4/17/2014 [Thu] 19:00 @ Korakuen Hall in Tokyo
~ Kaz & Kondo came out to greet the fans at the start of the show. KAI would also appear as he aimed to settle any issues they may have, reconciliation in other words, to take on DESPERADO. All 3 shook hands.
(1) Andy Wu vs. MAZADA [Tokyo Gurentai]
◆Winner: Wu (5:51) with the Pandashime.
(2) Chance Contra Chance Single Match: Hiroshi Yamato vs. “Japanese Million Dollar Man” Kazushi Miyamoto
~ If Miyamoto wins, he wants to put the Million Dollar Championship up against Funaki.
~ 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.

~ 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.
