    WRESTLE-1 “TOUR 2014 Cherry blossom”, 4/17/2014 [Thu] 19:00 @ Korakuen Hall in Tokyo
    1,080 Spectators

    ~ 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.


    (3) Ryota Hama & Toru Owashi [FREE] vs. Yoshihiro Takayama [Takayama Hall] & NOSAWA Rongai [Tokyo Gurentai]
    Winner: Takayama (6:52) following a Running Knee Lift on Hama.

    Winner: Yasufumi (11:44) with a backslide on HIROKI.
    image~ Hino did not accept the shocking defeat and attacked Yasu & Seiki. He would then drill both of them with the Fucking BOMB one after the other. He then flipped them both off as he exited the ring.

    (8) 6 Man Tag Match: KAI, Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo vs. Masayuki Kono, Ryoji Sai [ZERO1] & KAZMA SAKAMOTO [FREE]
    Winner: Kono (13:40) following a Running Knee to Kondo.
    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.


    (9) X-DIVISION Champion Match: [65th Champion] Seiya Sanada vs. [Challenger] Christopher Daniels

    Winner: Sanada (16:58) with the Rounding Body Press.

    [WRESTLE-1 News] Manabu Soya was a part of a press conference following his appearance at W-1’s Korakuen Hall show this past weekend.

    Manabu Soya is still currently a freelance wrestler, but has been offered the matchmaker position for the month of January by Keiji Mutoh. Mutoh was not on hand for the press conference, as he is only there for W-1 affiliated talent, but Soya corrected that by bringing in the stand-up cutout of Mutoh.

    Soya addressed DESPERADO’s constant rule-breaking and mentioned that there could very well be a penalize system being set in place if they continue to step into any matches that he has made. As of this time he is not sure to what the penalty will be, but he did joke that might include cleaning toilets.

    Soya then addressed KAI and the push for the ace candidate, and stated that after the last show that KAI is not the ace. That he is not convinced that KAI is the true ace candidate. He then stated that Seiya Sanada is the more appropriate choice for the true ace. Sanada won his match at the last Korakuen Hall show, while KAI lost to a junior heavyweight, though a talented one in Minoru Tanaka, after all his efforts to build himself up to the heavyweight class.

    This definitely can be seen as a personal play from Manabu given the history between Sanada and Soya in the past. KAI will definitely not stand for this as he has been the one fighting to prove himself as a contender, though the loss this past weekend is why Soya thinks that KAI is no longer a candidate.

    Soya then addressed a letter that he received by Kazushi Miyamoto, who appeared, out of no where, as the “Million Dollar Man” at the last show.
    Miyamoto seems to be quite upset that he was booked against a rookie for his first appearance and is looking for a real opponent who will let him show his true strength. Miyamoto also stated that he has placed a 10 million dollar bounty on his own head to the first person who can beat him fairly in the middle of the ring. Signed the “Japanese Million Dollar Man" Kazushi Miyamoto.

    Now something many of you may not know, Miyamoto is actually a fairly wealthy guy outside of the ring and this new character, though different than anything he has done previously, actually has some validity to it.

    Soya stated that Miyamoto will be on the January tour of shows and Soya will address the “matchmaking” appropriately.

    Soya mentioned that he will be in charge of the upcoming show on 1/19 and appears to be determined to make the best matches possible that the fans will enjoy.

    Soya was asked about how he perceived the boo’s that he received when he appeared out of no where for the Korakuen Hall show. Soya said that he was indeed nervous as it had been almost a year since he has spoken in the ring. There was indeed tension, but he was focused on what he was meant to do in the ring.

    Soya was then asked if he was going to return to active competition himself. He mentioned that he is still looking into it to happen in February, if everything works out, but where is not completely known at this time. Soya stated that he is still a freelance competitor and he will leave it up to Mutoh to decide if he indeed wrestles in W-1 or if someone else offers his the opportunity. He is leaving everything open. At this time, he is only working in W-1 for January.

    The lastly he was asked about his “wild” affiliation. Soya responded that “GET WILD” has not stopped. He said that he will always be a “wild guy” but that he also wants to broaden the wild outreach to other promotions.

    W-1’s next show will be on January 19.
