Default [CVerse] Black Canvas Grappling: Defenders of Puroresu

Legends, they called us. The aces and faces of Golden Canvas Grappling for over two decades. Four times we won the World Heavyweight Tag Team titles together and during our friendly rivalry as singles wrestlers, Yoshifusa Maeda won the World Heavyweight title five times, two more than I ever did. We saved it from utter collapse. Even in its darkest days, we stuck with the Roaring Lion despite lucrative offers from elsewhere, because loyalty and respect, to us, are more than just buzzwords you throw around for marketing and cheap thrills. Obviously, those in charge of the company these days think otherwise.

I retired from in-ring competition in 2006, at the ripe age of 54. Maeda was two years younger, but he retired that year as well. We were both well respected and experienced, which made the company keep us around as Road Agents. I only lasted a few months; couldn't stand being around but not in the ring, plus the tour schedules kept me on the road more than I'd like. I left the business to spend time with my family, while Maeda stuck around for a few more years, until CCG decided to join the Modern Japan Movement.

WLW and WEXXV started this thing when they decided the old ways of touring were evil and holding back Japanese promotions. The way forward was TV shows and big monthly events, they said, like promotions in the West do. At first, no one took them seriously. WLW was a silly promotion, dressing their juniors up in panda masks and whatnot. WEXVV was always a garbage promotion of blood and guts, somehow surviving on their fringe market. It was when Golden Canvas Grappling joined them that 'the Movement' was really born and our legacy really died.

Maeda responded with utter disgust. To his eyes, this was an insult to both himself and the company's proud legacy. Not only did he resign, he also started his own promotion, Black Canvas Grappling. If this was the West, he'd be marketing it as the 'counter-alternative' to GCG's modern twist. Instead, he simply went on carrying the torch as the true spiritual successor of the Roaring Lion's tradition. But Maeda couldn't do it all on his own. We always worked better as a team. So he shook heaven and earth to drag me out of retirement and into his company as the booker.

It's been five years since and we've managed to stay alive while the New Japan Movement recruited almost every promotion in Japan, except Pride Glory Honour Wrestling and ourselves. Even the mighty Burning Hammer of the Wrestling Gods were affected and although they did not officially join the alliance, they did leave the days of touring behind. These days we're still under fire from our rivals, struggling to avoid debt as both our talent and fanbase keep shrinking, but I have a plan.

Loyalty.

If we stuck with a promotion our entire careers, then so must our roster. Having a solid pool of talent will help us build future stars without fear of others cherry-picking our investments. I just hope we manage to get there before the competition eats us up alive.

It's always been like that. I just had to admit I'm not interested in keeping up my "UEW Rise of Euroresu" game and get to the actual puroresu instead

I am more interested in the puroresu diary than the Euroresu one. This will be great.

BCG Pack of Lions
Wednesday, W1 of January 2016
Gunma Hall, Kanto
Attendance: 300 (sold out)

In a decent match, Narahashi & Torii defeated Masayuki Shiga and Kiyotaka in 10:09 when Bunrakuken Torii defeated Kiyotaka by pinfall with a Flying Forearm Off Top.
Rating: D+

Comments: The match was aimed at Lifting the Crowd and it did just that, making sure the show was off to a strong start. Bunrakuken Torii was the MVP of the match, showing improved Performance skills. Kiyotaka was a close second, despite being a protected Young Lion and taking the fall, but not before also showing improvement in his Performance skills. Shiga too was protected to make up for his declining physical condition, while Dynamite Narahashi showed most potential and hard work thanks to sharpened Techincal and Performance skills

In a bout that had good wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Funakoshi defeated Roku Sotomura in 15:31 by pinfall with a Butterfly Backbreaker.
Rating: C+

Comments: The match was good enough to get the live crowd hotter than the opener did, with both wrestlers putting up a great performance. Winner Funakoshi was the better man between the ropes, showing some sharp new Technical skills while Sotomura has clearly improved in terms of Performance capabilities.

In a decent match, Razan Okamoto defeated Blast Ikoma in 20:39 by pinfall with a Brainbuster Suplex.
Rating: C-

Comments: Not as good as the match that preceded it, the main event still fired up the sold out crowd further despite (or perhaps thanks to) its slow build approach. Neither man had anything new on display but Okamoto was slightly better than Ikoma, making the win feel justified.

Show Rating: D
Comments: Show was penalized for all its production values, but the in-ring product was still good enough to earn BCG some new fans in the area,

BCG Pack of Lions
Wednesday, W2 of January 2016
Muroran Hall, Hokkaido
Attendance: 292

In a poor match, Sofu Ozawa and Naozane Goto defeated Naonobu Murakami and MUSCLE Serizawa in 9:37 when Naozane Goto defeated MUSCLE Serizawa by pinfall with a Goto Slam.
Rating: D

Comments: Opening tag match mixing veterans and young lions got the crowd going, with Naonobu Murakami carrying the match and showing improvement in his Performance skills despite being in his late 40s. Sofu Ozawa was solid but unimpresive in comparison, while the young lions did their best and both learned more about Performance, before the the musclebound Serizawa succumbed to former sumoka Goto.

In a decent match, Bunrakuken Torii defeated Yoshisada Matsuzawa in 16:28 by pinfall with a Spinning Forearm Smash.
Rating: C-

Comments: No surprise in the BCG World champion winning here, even if the title wasn't on the line. The only surprise was these two seem to have pretty good chemistry between them and it lifted the match, further elevating Matsuzawa in the eyes of fans and management, in case his improved Performance skills weren't enough.

In a bout that had great wrestling and a decent reaction from the crowd, Funakoshi defeated Razan Okamoto in 21:28 by pinfall with a Butterfly Backbreaker.
Rating: B-

Comments: Revisiting their battles at the finals of the Yoshifusa Maeda Grand Prix throughout the last couple of years, Funakoshi and Okamoto clashed one last time in a BCG ring before the latter leaves to join rivals Golden Canvas Grappling. Unsurprisingly, Okamoto lost the match and though management might consider his move a betrayal, fans still cheered him on once the match was over in a final goodbye. Funakoshi stays behind to most likely lead the company along with World champion Bunrakuken Torii and judging by his improved Rumble skills in this match, his best performances are still to come.

Show Rating: C-
Comments: Show was penalized for all its production values, but the in-ring product was even better than last week's, earning BCG plenty of new fans on the island of Hokkaido.

BCG Heritage
A show about honoring the veterans and passing the torch to the next generation
Friday, W2 of January 2016
Osaka Athletic Stadium, Kinki
Attendance: 2.611


Masayuki Shiga, Sharaku Okimasa & Kyuichi Matsumoto vs Naonobu Murakami, Yoshisada Matsuzawa & Gidayu Katou
Consistent with the event's name and theme, the show opened with a 3 on 3 match involving a veteran on the tail end of his career, a midcarder on the rise and a young lion rookie in each team. Despite not being the greatest in terms of actual wrestling, the match was watchable and fans took it at face value for exactly what it was, applauding those involved for their effort and overlooking any attempts to hide their individual weaknesses. Murakami and Matsuzawa held the match together, despite the former seeming a bit thrown off his game by a combination of age and the stress of working in front of a cold crowd. Katou did his best to rise to the level of his teammates, putting his best Performance skills on display and even adding some basic Technical moves to his brawl-based arsenal. On the opposite end, Masayuki Shiga tried to lead his team towards victory but a combination of age catching up on him and both his allies being all over the place worked against them. In their defense though, both Okimasa and Matsumoto have been working hard on their Performance skills, while Matsumoto especially seemed to have gotten a better grasp on the Technical aspect of his craft. Shiga took it upon himself to get the job done and using experience to beat the rookie Katou, he achieved just that after a terrifying display of strength at his age, hitting the youngser with a spine crunching Deadlift German.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Masayuki Shiga, Kyuichi Matsumoto and Sharaku Okimasa defeated Naonobu Murakami, Gidayu Katou and Yoshisada Matsuzawa in 9:38 when Masayuki Shiga defeated Gidayu Katou by pinfall with a Deadlift German Suplex.
Rating: D



Sofu Ozawa & Motoyuki Miyake vs Yoriie Ipputsai & Omezo Shikitei
Same concept as the opener, but cutting team numbers down to two as veterans joined young lions into battle. Omezo Shikitei really stole the show here, outperforming everyone between the ropes and showing improvement in both his Performance and Flying skills, even though the Black Canvas ring isn't all that welcoming to those who tend to leave the ground all too often. Of course, this being Japan, no matter how good he was, Shikitei is still a young lion, so Yoriie Ippitsusai was the one to wrap this up after he hit Miyake with a Yakuza Kick.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Yoriie Ippitsusai and Omezo Shikitei defeated Sofu Ozawa and Motoyuki Miyake in 9:42 when Yoriie Ippitsusai defeated Motoyuki Miyake by pinfall with a Yakuza Kick.
Rating: D




BCG World Tag Team titles match
Team Taku vs American Demolition
The audience fired up properly by this point, it was time to bring out the gaijin monster team of American Demolition for the evening's first title match. Defending champions Team Taku found themselves completely unable to get any damage under the thick skin of Big Bruiser Findlay and Bulldozer Brandon Smith, instead getting physically dominated by the massive Americans who focused their offense on the aging father Toshinobu Taku. This proved to be their undoing, as son Yoshinaka Taku was thus given enough time to recuperate and think of a new approach. In a true warrior's comeback, Yoshi chopped down both men's legs with the stiffest kicks imaginable, showing a solid grasp of Rumble and Performance skills as he sold the momentum shifting, before he revived his father to finish this off by hitting Smith with the Taku Tag Treatment.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Team Taku defeated American Demolition in 10:47 when Yoshinaka Taku defeated Bulldozer Brandon Smith by pinfall with a Taku Tag Treatment. Team Taku make defence number 7 of their BCG World Tag Team titles.
Rating: D



Rokuemon Matsushita vs Kadonomaro Kamisaka
Transitioning into singles matches, first one was big man Matsushita against "Serene K" Kadonomaro Kamisaka. Although there was a connection to the match that came before as Matsushita dominated his much smaller opponent, it didn't work quite as well as Kamisaka, despite his improved Performance skills, is still pretty much devoid of any facial expressions when wrestling, which undermines his selling, especially in a match like this where he's supposed to be squashed. Mercifully short, this match ended in just six minutes and everyone in attendance was ready to move on.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Rokuemon Matsushita defeated Kadonomaro Kamisaka in 6:02 by pinfall with an One-Handed Choke Slam.
Rating: D-




BCG Challengers Series title match
Tanyu Toshusai vs Nobuharu Yokokawa
Second title defense of the night was up next as Tanyu Toshusai defended against Nobuharu Yokokawa. A pretty open, competitive match, Yokokawa added to his menacing aura by hammering the champion with all kinds of nasty shots, a clear upgrade of his own Rumble skills, before Toshusai had been softened up enough to tap out. The news of Tanyu Toshusai signing a deal with rivals Golden Canvas grappling had been broken out a while ago, so no one was surprised to see him pass the title before departing, but this still was an interesting match to see as the execution was good enough to still captivate fans despite knowing the only way things could have ended.
In a bout that had decent wrestling but didn't have much heat, Nobuharu Yokokawa defeated Tanyu Toshusai in 15:37 by submission with a Stump Puller. Nobuharu Yokokawa wins the BCG Challengers Series title.
Rating: C-



Funakoshi vs Giant Brody
Breaking up the two singles titles matches, the semi main event featured BCG loyalist samurai Funakoshi going up against the agile big man gaijin Giant Brody. The American's agility may have been hes undoing though, as he lacked the stamina to back it up and the warrior spirit to keep fighting after he'd been gassed out. Having survived the onslaught and with the fans firmly in support, Funakoshi looked good making his comeback, first with strikes and then with suplexes on Brody, before finishing him off with the Butterfly Backbreaker.
In a decent match, Funakoshi defeated Giant Brody in 21:26 by pinfall with a Butterfly Backbreaker.
Rating: C




BCG World title match
Bunrakuken Torii vs Blast Ikoma
The main event did not involve any established veterans or a passing of the torch, but it still related to the name and theme of the show as it was essentially a rematch from when "Machine Gun" Bunrakuken Torii defeated Blast Ikoma to become the BCG World champion. Despite Torii's rapid fire forearm shots style not quite meshing with Ikoma's explosive offense, the two men took the time to pace themselves and lay the essential groundwork before climaxing towards a big finish. Torii was, unsurprisingly, the better wrestler here and after several failed attempts, he finally managed to connect with the Spinning Forearm Smash after twenty minutes to win the match and retain the title.
In a decent match, Bunrakuken Torii defeated Blast Ikoma in 20:38 by pinfall with a Spinning Forearm Smash. Bunrakuken Torii makes defence number 4 of his BCG World title.
Rating: C-

Show Rating: D

Comments: As usual, the show was penalized for all its production values, as opposed to those of rival promotions, though the feedback has been that it was a good show all around. During the post-show speech, both Funakoshi and Bunrakuken Torii were praised for their stellar performances, while Omezo Shikitei was pointed out as a good example of a young lion working hard at his craft.

BCG TagMania Tournament Preview
A classic elimination tag team tournament, with the finals being held at BCG TagMania in February and the winning team earning a title shot at BCG Test of Champions in May



American Demolition
Fresh out of losing a title match to the reigning champions Team Taku despite dominating the match, the duo of Big Bruiser Findlay and Bulldozer Brandon Smith would like nothing more than to earn themselves a rematch at BCG Test of Champions. Heavy favorites to win the tournament, American Demolition will stop at nothing in their pursuit of the titles, leaving nothing but destruction in their path.


Animal Harker & Giant Brody
Considered the "lesser" gaijin team in Black Canvas Grappling when compared to American Demolition, Harker and Brody are still a pair of large, dangerous brawlers who will not back down from a fight. Though not expected to win the tournament, Harker and Brody can still pose a tough obstacle for other teams to overcome, not only during the match itself but also moving forward due to lingering damage courtesy of their hard hitting, no nonsense style.


Rokuemon Matsushita & Naozane Goto
Regarded as BCG's answer to American Demolition, the menacing team of Matsushita and Goto boast an abundance of power, strength and combined weight between the two. Their only weakness might be their lack of experience, but if they're able to finish matches quickly through overwhelming firepower, they should do pretty good for themselves.


The Ring Generals
Dean Waldorf and Marv Statler may be new to Japan, but they are not new to the wrestling ring or tag team matches. After honing their chops with CZCW and PSW, the duo moved to NYCW where their old school style fit right in and will be making their debut in Japan, hopefully with a bang by winning the BCG TagMania tournament.


The Berzerkers
Another team imported for the BCG TagMania tournament, this time not from across the ocean but from rivals Warrior Engine XXV, Tatsukichi Schichirobei and Toyokuni Hardcore will be bringing their own special brand of crazy brawling to the Black Canvas ring. A real wildcard in the tournament, The Berzerkers might surprise their opponents with their unorthodox approach and antics, but their greatest strength might lie in their toughness and resilience, tried and tested throughout countless insane deathmatches with their home promotion.


Yoshisada Matsuzawa & Omezo Shikitei
Matsuzawa and Shikitei might seem like an odd pairing, but they have both managed to impress so far in 2016 individually and there's a good chance that put together, the synergies might take them to the next level. Anyone underestimating them is in for a surprise, the only thing left is to see how far they will be able to make it in the tournament.


Sofu Ozawa & Sharaku Okimasa
A gifted technical wrestler, Okimasa has been in search of something that will elevate him from the rest of the midcard pack and teaming up with Ozawa might be just it. The veteran boasts experience and a well-rounded game, features that should compliment Okimasa's sharp yet one-dimensional approach. How far that will take them in the tournament though remains to be seen.


Nobuharu Yokokawa & Kadonomaro Kamisaka
These two men have had very different experiences in this year's BCG Heritage show, with Yokokawa winning the BCG Challengers title while Kamisaka got destroyed by Rokuemon Matsushita. What fans here are really looking forward to seeing is the duo's bout with Matsushita & Goto, not only due to the recent history but because if someone can take down the two Japanese monsters, it's these two calm, collected but utterly tenacious competitors.


Tournament brackets
Quarterfinal 1: Berzerkers vs Harker & Brody
Quarterfinal 2: Matsuzawa & Shikitei vs Ring Generals
Quarterfinal 3: Matsushita & Goto vs Yokokawa & Kamisaka
Quarterfinal 4: American Demolition vs Ozawa & Okimasa

Semifinal 1: Winner of Quarterfinal 1 vs Winner of Quarterfinal 3
Semifinal 2: Winner of Quarterfinal 2 vs Winner of Quarterfinal 4

Final: Winner of Semifinal 1 vs Winner of Semifinal 2

Definitely keeping up with this. In my personal game in Australia, the promotion who I end up sharing workers with often is when my guys go on tour with BCG, still kicking in mid - late 2025 despite GCG, SAISHO, 5SSW, WEXXV, and PGHW all going out of business.

Quarterfinal 1: Berzerkers vs Harker & Brody

Semifinal 1: Berzerkers vs Matsushita & Goto

Knowing of the great equalizer yet to come (the tsunami) it makes sense, all the big companies in Japan take a great hit. I am curious though as to the link between your promotion and BCG, as far as I know the scene there is mostly about comedy high flyers (ZEN), hardcore wrestling (DIW and most unemployed wrestlers) and mainstream stuff (every other company). Unless you started your own traditional/puro perf>pop company, it sounds weird that BCG would be interested.

BCG Pack of Lions
Thursday, W3 of January 2016
Toyama Hall, chubu
Attendance: 648

In a bout that had sub-par wrestling and little heat, Harker & Brody defeated Gidayu Katou and Motoyuki Miyake in 9:45 when Giant Brody defeated Gidayu Katou by pinfall with a Single Handed Choke Slam.
Rating: E+

Comments: Harker & Brody opened the show against a young lion pairing that somehow managed to outperform them, despite this being meant to give the tournament competitors some momentum and Brody dominating most of the bout. Miyake improved his Performance skills and Katou is gettng better when it comes to Rumble, but neither of all the above was enough to save them from Brody's impressive Single Handed Choke Slam.

In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, Matsuzawa & Shikitei defeated Kiyotaka and Kyuichi Matsumoto in 9:33 when Yoshisada Matsuzawa defeated Kyuichi Matsumoto by pinfall with a Double Arm DDT.
Rating: D

Comments: Another match featuring a tournament team against a young lion duet, this time the veteran Matsuzawa carried the match and also got the pin on the weakest link to start off the right foot. This match got fans hotter, making up for the somewhat disappointing start.

In a bout that had decent wrestling but little heat, American Demolition defeated Eikichi Itou and MUSCLE Serizawa in 10:23 when Big Bruiser Findlay defeated Eikichi Itou by pinfall with a Spike Tombstone.
Rating: D-

Comments: Tagmania favorites American Demolition bounced back from their title match loss to Team Taku by destroying the heavyweight duo of Itou and Serizawa in under ten minutes. Bulldozer Brandon Smith was especially impressive during this match, while on the opposite end, heavyweight Itou surprised many in his debut by showing improvement in his Technical foundation. Meanwhile, Serizawa brought the Rumble skills against the gaijins, but even if he wasn't extremely sloppy throughout the match, there was no doubt this could have ended any other way.

In a decent match, Blast Ikoma defeated Noritoshi Miura in 21:21 by pinfall with a Northern Lights Bomb.
Rating: D+

Comments: With his tag team partner off to join Golden Canvas Grappling, Noritoshi Miura took a back seat during BCG Heritage, making many question the duo's absence. Wrestling his first singles match after quite some time, Miura's lack of stamina was exposed as he was visibly tiring by the end, a fact that affected his in-ring performance as well.

Show Rating: D-
Comments: Show was penalized for all its production values as usual, but the in-ring action was not what made BCG popular in the greater Chubu area. It's been reported several fans tuned out and were disappointed by the result, effectively hurting the company's popularity in the region.
