LONDON CALLING -
The Return of A Wrestling Icon


After being out of the business for two years, working exclusively in hockey might be over for Tommy London who was announced as signing a consultant contract with Golden Canvas Grappling. While he is expected to stay in Canada, London’s influence was seen immediately at the press conference held in Kobe, Japan earlier today as Canadian and Japanese flags flanked London and Haruko Kudo. The duo announced a new schedule for the Japanese promotion, bringing about two monthly events instead of one. The New Year’s Carnival, which will be held on New Year’s day has a complete lineup announced and many believe this might be the best card in the Kudo era.

Golden Canvas Grappling Presents New Year’s Carnival 2016
New Year’s Day, 2016

A few years ago, the opening video for GCG was a tribute to its past. But many of the old timers have disowned GCG due to their joining of the Modern Japan movement so despite over 55 years of history, the ideas of promoting Black Canvas Grappling or Pride Glory Honor Wrestling no longer appeals to the sense of GCG and instead we get spliced footage of the modern stars of GCG performing various stunts. Very modern, very western… Maybe one day GCG will return to its roots, but for now time’s arrow marches forward.


Lion Genji vs. Shotaro Ikina

The hard hitting action of Golden Canvas Grappling kick off 2016 with a bang as the young Lion Genji took on the legendary tag specialist Shotaro Ikina. My Japanese is a tad rusty, so forgive me but I believe the announce team mentioned Ikina’s current partner, Yasuhide Tayama would be in tonight’s Carnival Battle Royal meaning the formidable tag team could be holders of both the Openweight and World titles the next time GCG returns to Osaka. With that said, there’s a formula to Shotaro Ikina’s singles matches - either he loses after putting up a strong fight or he makes a come back and wins. It’s pretty simplistic, but effective. In this match, it was the latter as Lion Genji’s youth was shown with his stamina and the variety of moves the youngster knew, but one mistake allowed Shotaro back into the match, eventually hitting the impressive Ikina Driver at the 12 minute mark for the win.
Rating - ✯✯


Barry Kingman vs. Sozen Ishinomori

No thrills, no frills Barry Kingman is on what many believe to be his retirement tour in the Golden Canvas as he takes on the gigantic Sozen Ishinomori. To capture the size different between the two men, go stand next to a toddler tomorrow. Sozen truly is a giant compared to some men, although at only 6’7, he would be on par with many American stars and his size and charisma make it only a matter of time until an American company like USPW come calling for him. Until then, the youngster is plying his trade in the Golden Canvas and his dominating style (alongside Kingman’s selling ability) really makes this a fun match to watch. It’s, by no means, a classic but it is something that shows how bigger men should be booked, win or lose, as Ishinomori tosses Kingman post to post. A Tommy London influence can be seen in this match though as Sozen does something many big men in NOTBPW would do when he attempts a top rope move only for the smaller wrestler, Kingman, to avoid the big splash. This changes momentum and eventually Kingman is able to connect with the Black Out and it’s academic from there.
Rating - ✯✯


Daniels and Gauge vs. Samoan Destruction Inc.

The last time these two teams met was at November 2014’s Golden Spirit event when Samoan Destruction Inc. defeated Daniels and Gauge for their 4th tag title reign. Rhino Umaga and Samoan Machine are like a successful, Japanese version of the Samoan Wildboyz as despite the downward trend of Golden Canvas over the past two decades, there’s been a consistent in the tag division with some of the best tag teams. Dean Daniels and Greg Gauge are a newer team, are the classic vet/rookie combo and have done quiet well for themselves as well. This match is a showcase match as the announce team remind us that neither team will move up in the tag rankings after this match and because of this, it seems like Daniels is giving less effort than usual. This less than stellar effort would be a mistake against Samoan Destruction Inc. as the dominant Samoans take advantage with Samoan Machine locking in the Unbreakable Sleeper on Daniels for the win around the 9 minute mark. Despite the short length, this was a well put together match setting up for a Gauge singles run who looked frustrated with the loss and put over how dangerous the Samoans still are.
Rating - ✯✯½


Barry Kingman vs. Shotaro Ikina

An interesting note the combined age of both men is 91 and while the Golden Canvas claims it’s moving forward, a #1 contender’s match like this says the opposite. Kingman seemed still able to go one more time tonight during this match but he was forced to carry Shotaro Ikina who looked exhausted from the moment the bell rang. This match resembled a 1980’s Golden Canvas match more than a modern match as Ikina reverted to rest holds just to catch his breathe. This exhaustion played into the decision as well as when Ikina signaled for the Ikina Driver, he wasn’t able to stay standing long enough to hit it and Kingman was able to take advantage and connect with the Black Out for the win.

New Year’s Carnival Battle Royale
Jimmy Cox, SUKI, Takayuki 2000, Toshiharu Hyobanshi, Eagle Kawasawa
Harumi Okazawaya, Kiminobu Kuroki, Yasuhide Tayama, Azumamaro Shimizu, Mashashi Urogataya
There’s a few overarching storylines in this match, so I’ll attempt to summarize them for fans who don’t follow GCG. Jimmy Cox is beginning to become obsessed with the World title, a belt he hasn’t held in 7 years, SUKI and Takayuki 2000 are both recent champs and have had a “friendly” rivalry over the belt over the past few years, the mysterious Eagle Kawasawa has been going over a transformation the past few months since the death of his parents, with this being his first in ring match since his parents died. Kiminobu Kuroki was the regular tag partner of current champ Hiroyasu Gakusha but neither man has been in the same ring together in a few years now and while the friendship is still there, both commented it would be an honor to compete for the belt. Yasuhide Tayama has been involved in singles competition as of late, recently holding the Openweight belt back in 2014. The perennial midcarder Harumi Okazawaya, and youngsters Azumamaro Shimizu and Mashashi Urogataya are all looking for their shot into the big time and winning this New Year’s Carnival Battle Royale would be the first shot at the big time for many of them. For Okazawaya. that shot would not be at Art of Battle in two weeks as Jimmy Cox sent Okazawaya screaming over the top rope in less than a minute. Back to the midcard for Okazawaya. The rest of the match broke down into different brawls and fights as alliances were formed quickly (and broken even quicker) as each of the nine remaining men looked for an advantage. Takayuki 2000 was being double teamed by one of these alliances of Azumamaro Shimzu and Mashashi Urogataya but the youngsters soon were divided when attempting to eliminated Takayuki 2000, allowing the veteran to slip under and eliminate both men from behind. 7 remaining now, as the former champ, Takayuki 2000, took a breather in the corner. The mysterious Eagle Kawasawa continued to be mysterious when he eliminated himself. The announcers tried to think of a reason for this, and Kudo promised he’d get an interview with Kawasawa soon. The final six remaining split into 3 distinct groups, Kiminobu Kuroki and Jimmy Cox, SUKI and Tosiharu Hyobanshi and Yasuhide Tayama and Takayuki 2000 were the 3 pairings. Yasuhide Tayama saw his World title hopes dashed however when Takayuki 2000 sent him over the top rope with a superkick while Tosiharu Hyobanshi ate the concrete after attempting to eliminating SUKI but being eliminated himself. Jimmy Cox scored another elimination when he took out Kuroki with a beautiful springboard dropkick. Cox, Takayuki and SUKI all circled around, neither wanting to commit the fatal mistake first when Cox slumped back, allowing SUKI and Takayuki to continue their rivalry, exchanging stiff shots with each other. Cox slumped back, waiting for his time to attack and with SUKI and Takayuki on the ropes, Cox took the time to eliminate both men! Cox turns around celebrating the victory as the crowd applauses, until there’s some chatter… TAKAYUKI AIR ATTACK! Takayuki 2000 skinned the cat and sent Jimmy Cox over the top rope and is the winner!
Rating - ✯✯✯

After the match, Jimmy Cox is simply stunned on the outside of the ring. Haruki Kudo is in the ring to present Takayuki 2000 with the New Year’s Carnival Trophy. Jimmy Cox stares, questioning referee Sadanobu Koruba but the decision is clearly final as streamers shoot off and the Carnival winner was clearly, and cleanly decided. The voice of the Golden Canvas, Masatake Hori, explains that Takayuki did not have both feet touch the ground as a replay shows clearly that he was able to skin the cat, and Hori blames the cockiness of the gaijin Cox for once again getting the best of him.



GCG World Tag Team Championship Match
THE CHALLENGERS
Hiroyasu Gakusha & Namboku Makuda
vs.
REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED GCG TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS
Shingen Miyazaki & Mabuchi Furusawa

The main event was met with much fanfare as Hiroyasu Gakusha, the reigning GCG World champion is always a treat to see. The Openweight Champion, Makuda, also is quite the treat and seeing both against the reigning tag champs for the belts makes this another Tommy London inspired match as it sets up some tension for a match that had no prior build. Can the two singles champions work together long enough to win the belts or are the tag team champions just that much better prepared? This is a good, hard hitting match that gives people an example of classic Japanese tag team wrestling that really was - methodical, hard hitting, and an almost individualistic sense to the match as each wrestler would prefer to capture the win and perhaps advance in the rankings or save face rather than eat a pin or even standby. The announce team hypes the possibility of a victory over either singles champion being a huge boost in the tag champs careers, with perhaps even boosting one of the tag champs to a title shot in the future as well. After going back and forth, it was a Makuda blind tag on the World champ that shifted momentum. Gakusha did not recognize the tag and Roaring Gakusha Strike, referee Sadanobu Koruba jumped between Gakusha and Miyazaki. Gakusha held up in time of course, and noticed his partner in the ring. The frustrated Gakusha complied with the rules but this distraction was enough for Miyazaki and Furusawa to regain control of the match and a few quick tags wore down the Openweight champion, allowing the tag champs to retain with a huge Ankle Lock on Makuda and the win as a frustrated World Champion Gakusha looked on.
Rating - ✯✯✯

Miyazaki and Furusawa are awarded their tag titles, celebrating their victory over the singles champions to much fanfare. Such a victory, whether for the belt or not, are rare especially over Hiroyasu Gakusha. The singles champs shake hands with the Tag Team champions before dparting. As the champs celebrate this win however, 3 men jump the barricade attacking the men…

The three Samoans begin to beat down on the Tag Team champions as the crowd boos the sneaky attack. Samoan Destruction, Inc. is dwarfed by the masked Massacre, the relative newcomer in GCG who takes out Miyazaki with a lariat. Furusawa is attempting to fight back against Samoan Destruction, Inc. but with his partner taken out, Massacre was able to turn his attention and the trio hit a huge triple powerbomb on Furusawa. The tag champs are left down and defeated as the trio of Samoans stand tall to end the New Year’s Carnival.

GOLDEN ERA TELEVISION
Stars of the Golden Canvas returns to television next week!


Following the success of New Year’s Carnival, J-Network East announced that GCG Stars of the Golden Canvas would debut the Saturday after Art of Battle. The show, which is to be an hour long, will air Saturday Afternoons on J-Network East 3. J-Network East also announced that beginning in February, GCG events would air live on J-Network East 3. This marks GCG’s first foray into television in years and would be different than previous editions of Stars which were tour highlights. These shows will be recorded completely on Friday nights and then air Saturday afternoons.

There were some influences of Tommy London noticeable on last week’s New Year’s Carnival. Samoan Destruction, Inc.’s attack on the tag champs was the most noticeable as it created a line between the five wrestlers and many fans booed. Whether this is a positive for GCG or not is yet to be seen as the very traditional fans have not reacted to many changes before, and the brutal attack may be the last straw for some of them,

ART OF BATTLE.
Live from Yamanashi Athletic Center,
The Third Wednesday of January





World Tag Team Champions Shingen Miyazaki and Mabuchi Furusawa and Razan Okamoto
vs.
Samoan Destruction, Inc. and Massacare


The mystery partner was the 2015 Yoshifusu Maeda Grand Prix winner, Razan Okamoto. This is a pretty big steal for Golden Canvas and marks one of the first jumps from Black Canvas to Golden Canvas since BCG was established back in 2011 and it’s quite the steal as Okamoto was definitely primed to lead BCG into the future, and enter the main event scene. The Samoan trio began the match with many tags and many taunts to the crowd. Unlike most GCG matches where there is very little difference between the designated heel or face, the Samoan trio attempted to draw heat from the riled up crowd from the beginning. The loud boos of the crowd, the anger that seeped into the ring only seemed to empower the Samoan Trio who fed off it and it threw off the tag champs. The former Black Canvas Grappler Okamoto seemed to be the only one to phase it out and when he was in the ring it showed. The six men went in and out, exchanging blows with each other as soon as each tag was made. While the wrestling wasn’t anything phenomenal, the crowd was into it being one of the louder Golden Canvas crowds in quite a while. Shingen Miyazaki looked like he was going to get Rhino Umaga locked in an Ankle Lock but a blind tag by Massacre came into play and it was Shingen Miyazaki who would eat the pinfall when he tried to go one on one with the massive Massacre and ate a Black Descent (Black Hole Slam) for his troubles at the 30 minute mark.

Jimmy Cox vs. Lion Genji


The announce team reminds viewers of Jimmy Cox’s quest for the title, noting how close Cox was to getting a title shot last month. With the youngster Lion Genji in the opposite corner, Jimmy Cox absolutely tears into Genji from the bell. His goal seems to be to use Genji as a reminder and a threat to the main event that Jimmy Cox is moving to the top. Genji’s youth shows as well as even when it seems like he is able to get an advantage, he is overwhelmed by the veteran Cox and the Immortal Driver is, as always, enough to put away Lion Genji.
Rating - ✯✯½

After the match ends, Jimmy Cox simply sits in the ring as referee Sadanobu Koruba helps Lion Genji out of the ring. Cox begins to stare at his hands, laughing to himself. Haruki Kudo gets into the ring to the post match interview, but as Kudo attempts to ask Cox questions, the former champion simply sits there laughing into his hands. Kudo simply calls for someone to get the madman out of the ring. Cox stops laughing and shoots a death stare at Kudo before rolling out and heading to the back, in silence.


Dean Daniels & Greg Gauge vs. Harumi Okazawaya & SUKI

The announce team tries to recover from the odd Jimmy Cox interaction as tag action comes up. The gaijin team looks focused after the altercation earlier this month left them looking disunited. Okazawaya and SUKI however are used to this pressure, With it being an exhibition, much like the last tag match Daniels & Gauge were in, this wouldn’t count for tag rankings but it certainly can boost careers and three of the four men brought their best. SUKI is a young gun who’s had a rivalry with with Takayuki 2000 over the past few years and SUKI will definitely be the one to carry GCG into the future as he showed in this tag match. The other youngster, Greg Gauge, has pedigree written over him (being Sam Keith’s son will do that to you) and when he and SUKI were in the ring, it was magic. Okazawaya also brought a good game as well, and it was Okazawaya and SUKI who kept the fight up longer. Greg Gauge, when the ring was cut in half, managed a wonderful dropkick to Okazawaya and managed to tag in Dean Daniels but Dean Daniels wasn’t able to take advantage as Okazawaya quickly tagged in SUKI who pounced on the veteran Daniels and was able to connect with the SUKI Special III for the win.

#1 Contender’s Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Eagle Kawasawa vs. Toshiharu Hyobanshi

Haruki Kudo reminds us that he was planning on getting a word with Eagle Kawasawa after the odd self elimination at the New Year’s Carnival and that this Saturday Afternoon on Stars of the Golden Canvas on J-Network East 3, his exclusive interview would air. Kawasawa continues a lot of the odd behavior against Toshiharu Hyobanshi as whenever it looked like Kawasawa was able to get an advantage against Hyobanshi, he would ask for permission from the referee or ask Hyobanshi if he was okay. When Masatake Hori would ask Haruki Kudo about it, Kudo would promote Stars of the Golden Canvas this Saturday afternoon. Interesting promotion for Saturday’s show (besides the fact the winner of this match would face the champ Saturday afternoon). Despite the oddity of Eagle Kawasawa’s insane nonsense, the crowd really dug the match and the good wrestling overshadowed it. It also led to the ending as Kawasawa went for the Vision Quest, but delayed to ask for permission to do the move. This light delay led to Hyobanshi to recover and set up Kawasawa for the eventual Nova Bomb Redux and an eventual title shot this Saturday!

GCG Openweight Championship
REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED GCG OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION,
Namboku Makuda
vs.
THE CHALLENGER,
Barry Kingman

The last match just was too hot to follow for Makuda and Kingman, not they needed to try and match it, but even if they wanted to they couldn’t have. Thankfully, that’s not what Makuda and Kingman are needed to do here. Makuda’s partner Toshiharu Hyobanshi just won the #1 contender’s match for the World belt, so Makuda defending tonight would give an opportunity for the team to hold two singles belts. But Barry Kingman was coming off a ride of momentum, having closed the year on a winning streak and winning two matches at New Year’s Carnival to earn this title shot. Kingman and Makuda wrestle a decent match here, trading blows back and forth as it seems they’re both evenly matched, with each man looking for another’s weakness, something Kingman was able to find when Makuda attempted the Dangerous Brainbuster, which Kingman was able to counter and connect with the Black Out instead, winning his first title in his GCG career!

GCG World Heavyweight Championship
REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED GCG WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION,
Hiroyasu Gakusha
vs.
THE CHALLENGER,
Takayuki 2000

Hiroyasu Gakusha is the ace of Golden Canvas, and each night he proves it putting on the best match of the night, putting himself as performer of the night and making everyone look better. And when he has someone like Takayuki 2000 with him, it isn’t that hard to pull off. The announce team reminds us this is only the second defense of Gakusha’s 4th reign and while they felt it unlikely, Takayuki 2000 is a former World champ and could easily end the reign tonight. This is a great back and forth, STIFF brawl as neither man is looking to make this a catch as catch can classic but rather each man is looking to take the other out with blows and various slams. The crowd hushes around the 20 minute point when Takayuki 2000 hits a brutal lariat from behind on the back of neck on Hiroyasu Gakusha. The shot sends Hiroyasu Gakusha careening to the floor and while this allows Gakusha to recover, how much recovering he did is questionable as he wasn’t able to get back in until the count of 18. With Gakusha on rubber legs, Takayuki 2000 pounces, connecting with a snap DDT. Only a 2 count, which Kudo says is pure instinct from the fighting champion. Takayuki 2000 looks down on Gakusha and decides to connect with the Takayuki Air Attack! The crowd is hush as their champion looks to not be able to prevail, but once again at the count of two the champ stirs, this time putting his foot on the bottom rope. Kudo again says instinct, and remarks that the former champ should’ve known better than to pin Gakusha near the ropes. Takayuki looks frustrated by this, and Takayuka starts to drag Gakusha into the center of the ring but Gakusha rolls him in the small package, which only gets a two count. Both men back into their corners to regain composure, as the crowd applauds their efforts. Both men give each other a obligatory nod and hand slap before continuing. “GAH-KU-SHA! TA-KA-YU-KI! GAH-KU-SHA! TA-KA-YU-KI!” Once again, the normally reserved crowd is eating this match up as the opposing chants start. The two men once again begin to brawl, looking to take the other out. Takayuki 2000 looks to hit the huge Lariat again on a prone Gakusha, but the World champ was playing possum this time as he ducks under, surprising the challenger who is hit with the Roaring Gakusha Strike! Gakusha doesn’t believe this is enough for the win though as he signals for the Gakusha Golden Bomb and when Takayuki gets up, Gakusha hits the Gakusha Golden Bomb on Takyuki 2000 and that’s more than enough to put the challenger away!
Rating - ✯✯✯½



Hiroyasu Gakusha is handed his GCG World Championship as the crowd applauds the World championship defense. Takayuki 2000 is up after a few moments and the two shake hands, showing an appreciation for not only each other but the GCG World Championship and Puroresu in general. The announce team put over both men when Haruki Kudo suddenly questions, “why is he out here?” The hard camera quickly pans over to the entrance way where Jimmy Cox is standing there laughing and wooping up a storm… alone. The two men in the ring don’t seem to notice, but Kudo is extremely upset at the disrespect Jimmy Cox is giving as the show ends.

GCG Stars of the Golden Canvas
Episode 1, January 2016


Merle O’Curle vs. Takayuki 2000

The Irish submissionist is making his debut in Japan here against the former Golden Canvas World Champion who’s coming off a loss. The announce team hype O’Curle’s accomplishments in England as a big deal, stating that if Takayuki 2000 is still thinking of his loss a few days ago this may be a afternoon of regret for Takayuki. While O’Curle is able to take an advantage at the beginning of the match, all it takes is a single Takayuki Bomb Attack to put Merle O’Curle away at the 7 minute mark.
Rating - ✯✯✯½



Danjuro Kikuchi & Mashashi Urogataya vs.
Samoan Destruction Inc. w/ Massacre

An extremely short match that was used more to promote Samoan Destruction, Inc. and their villainy than anything else as Danjuro and Mashashi were simply no match for Rhino Umaga and Samoan Machine. It’s impressive how much heat the Samoan trio draw from the usually reserved crowd who boo the Massacre just for his mere presence at ringside. This is a glorified squash with Danjuro and Mashashi getting very little offense in and it ends when Rhino Umaga locked in the Samoan Crab on Danjuro around the 4 minute mark for the win.

As has been promoted all afternoon, and all week really, the exclusive sit down between Haruki Kudo and Eagle Kawasawa aired. It was quite a spectacle as Eagle was supposedly unmasked for the interview, but his voice was changed and the lights were dimmed. It was also filmed from behind o mostly all that was seen was the back of a head and Haruki Kudo. Kudo questioned Kawasawa on the weird behavior, the mysteriousness of it all and Kawasawa kept referencing his parents in every answers. Line of the night: “So why do you wear a mask?” Kudo asked, and Kawasawa responded “I wear a mask because I am hiding my identity because of my parents.” Finally, Kudo gives in and asks about Kawasawa’s parents but as Kawasawa was about to answer, we cut back to the live show where Haruki Kudo promises the rest of the interview will air next week! What a cliff hanger…


Dean Daniels vs. Jimmy Cox

Once again, the announce team discuss Jimmy Cox’s journey for the World championship with Cox’s turn towards insanity, which Haruki Kudo describes as a disgrace to the Golden Canvas and if it were up to him, the championship committee would suspend Cox indefinitely, until he sought medical treatment. This was standard Jimmy Cox wrestling, back and forth exchanging of blows before a mistake opened it up for Cox to set up and connect with the Immortal Driver. Even in his disgrace, the Immortal Driver is one of the best moves in GCG.

GCG World Heavyweight Championship
REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED GCG WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION,
Hiroyasu Gakusha
vs.
THE CHALLENGER,
Toshiharu Hyobanshi

I watch a lot of wrestling. It’s my job. This week, there was a ton of wrestling to watch. Total Wrestling, Supreme TV, Title Bout, Lucha Libre, American Wrestling, LuchaResu, Attittude! etc. Not that everyone could see every show available, but there’s the Pirate Bay. When I say you need to go download this show, just for this match, I mean it. Or sign up for some kind of trial to get this on your TV. And pray, one day, GCG gets on American television. This was one of the best matches you could see on free TV this week. Heck, this was better than anything CGC put on their Elimination PPV and better than everything the Burning Hammer put on Burning Path I. It was just good. Not great, not 5 stars or anything like that but just a solid match, worked between two veterans who understand the need for quality psychology in the ring and the challenge of building up towards a finale, rather than having a match and ending it abruptly. The two men worked each other, Gakusha targeting Hyobanshi’s neck, while Hyobanshi targeted the legs of Gakusha. Each man looking to weaken their opponent whether it was to connect with a finisher and make an impact or to prevent their opponent from connecting with the finisher. But for Gakusha, this was an exhibition of what happens when he works with a great opponent (no disrespect to any of his other opponents this year) as he just blended smoothly with Hyobanshi’s every move and both men sold each other’s attacks like a million bucks, especially Hyobanshi selling the Gakusha Golden Bomb around the 30 minute mark, which allowed Gakusha to retain for the 3rd time in this reign!

Once again, as the World Championship celebrations begin, Jimmy Cox makes his way out, laughing as he stares out towards the champion. Haruki Kudo is calling for security to come out and detain Cox before he ruins this celebration but Gakusha has already seen him. Rather than react with anger, Gakusha shakes his head with disapproval as the show goes off the air.

GCG Stars of the Golden Canvas
Episode 2, January 2016

The show begins with the announce team hyping up the main event of tonight’s show, with World Title implications! Jimmy Cox and SUKI will be taking on Takayuki 2000 and Hiroyasu Gakusha in what should be an amazing match with potential for match of the year. But before we get there, we have other matches on tap.


Greg Gauge vs. Yasuhide Tayama

A decent match to kick off the show, as the announce team explained the latest in the gaijin struggles for Gauge and Daniels, who have spent the month of January without a single win. A win for Gauge would be a huge boost to both Daniels & Gauge, especially over Yasuhide Tayama who is embarking on a full-time singles career, beginning tonight. The win for Tayama however would also cement his decision of a full-time singles career. With a few different facets in place for this match, it got quite exciting, quite fast as Gauge and Tayama brought a solid start to the show that saw the gaijin losing streak continue when Yasuhide Tayama was able to connect with a lariat after Gauge mistimed a dropkick.
Rating - ✯✯✯



Danjuro Kikuchi & Shotaro Ikina vs. Toshiharu Hyobanshi & Namboku Makuda

The former partner of Yasuhide Tayama sees himself teaming with his third partner in his career, Danjuro Kikuchi. Haruki Kudo commented that before the show, Shotaro informed him he was excited to team with Danjuro, and how their team name would be SHAME going forward. Some kinks to work out for SHAME though as the youngster Danjuro Kikuchi eats a Nova Bomb from Toshiharu Hyobanshi farely quickly and this match does exactly what it needed to do: promote a new tag team while reminding fans that Hyobanshi and Makuda were still at the top of their game.
Rating - ✯✯✯

Hyobanshi and Makuda don’t stick around as the music of Samoan Destruction, Inc. (Iron Man by Electric Eel Shock) begins to play. The Samoan trio makes their way out with a smaller, suited Japanese fellow leading them. Fans of Japanese indy promotions would recognize him as Munenori Umari, who plays the little guy with big monsters role quite well. Recently, he began to work in EXODUS 2010 (the Jr. Heavyweight version of GCG) but is a perfect fit in GCG, especially with the silent Samoans. GCG isn’t a big user of managers, but in this case it might be perfect. Umari announces to the crowd that he is the financial backer behind the Samoan trio now, buying their contracts from GCG for “The Boss.” From now on, Destruction, Inc. (noticeably Samoan is omitted when Umari mentions it) will be following his orders, working for him and as happened back at New Year’s Carnival, everyone should be on notice. Rough translation: ”the tag titles are our first acquisition in a few short weeks at Parade of Champions, but it is simply the stepping stone to success for Destruction, Inc.”


Massacare w/ Munenori Umari vs. Merle O’Curle

This was a squash match. O’Curle is fulfilling a role in this company and while right now it’s not that of success, it is that of an active trailer role and as such he takes the job, being tossed around for about 2 minutes before eating a Black Descent.
Rating - ✯✯

Part 2 of the Eagle Kawasawa interview kicked off with Haruki Kudo and Eagle Kawasawa. Last week’s question is repeated, as Kawasawa is asked why he was so obsessed with his parents. Kawasawa shakes his head and shrugs. Kudo asks again and Kawasawa looks up, and remarks “my parents were killed by wrestlers, it is why I wrestle.” Kudo begins to prod which wrestler it was, but Kawasawa doesn’t answer and runs from the interview leaving Haruki Kudo alone.


Hiroyasu Gakusha and Takayuki 2000 vs. Jimmy Cox and SUKI

The main event of the show comes up and it’s a barn burner. Cox looks a little bit slow in the match, but the other three men more than make up for it. SUKI and Takayuki 2000 are frothing to continue their rivalry and Hiroyasu, who has been stalked by Cox, is almost overly excited to fight Jimmy Cox. With these two storylines in place, neither rivalry really is fulfilled in this match as SUKI takes on Hiroyasu and Takayuki takes on Cox for much of the match. The hard hitting brawl sees Hiroyasu and Takayuki in control for most of the match, but it would be the insane Jimmy Cox who would prevail in this one when Hiroyasu Gakusha set up SUKI for Gakusha Golden Bomb, Jimmy Cox was able to sneak in a blind tag on SUKI and after Gakusha hit the Golden Bomb he turned right into an Immortal Driver. A cheap shot from Cox takes out Takayuki and the insane one is left standing alone after the three count!

Really enjoying this so far Brisk, GCG is a company I've always found a bit bland but you're doing some fine character work.

[Thanks MHero! I wanted something that would be a challenge to write, but easy to book. I think I found something and I'm enjoying it. Of course, as someone who can't pronounce Tajiri I am having way too much fun just giving nicknames to every worker.]

Controversial Angle to air on Stars of the Golden Canvas tonight

This week’s Stars of the Golden Canvas was recorded last night at the Nagasaki Sports Park and many fans are reacting to an angle involving Eagle Kawasawa last night. It is being received very split amongst fans who have told us that that either it is a disgrace to the Golden Canvas and won’t watch with Eagle Kawasawa or have commented that it adds another facet to the Eagle Kawasawa angle over the past few weeks. While we won’t share spoilers here, after hearing we need to let you know parents may not want to let their children watch what happens.

Fans at the show also let us know there were two surprise debuts. Tanyu Toshusai, the nephew of the legendary Yoshinaka Toshusai, debuted sans his BCG Challengers Series championship. The other appearance? The former Burning Hammer head booker, Tasuku Iesada. The card below will show where each man lands.

Speaking of the card below, after last week’s victory by Jimmy Cox, many expected Cox would be getting the World championship shot he seemingly earned when he pinned the World champion in tag action, but the Championship Committee announced that Cox’s illegal maneuver on Takayuki 2000 injured his opponent and due to the injury and legality of the maneuver, Cox would have one more test before receiving a shot.

GCG Stars of the Golden Canvas
Episode 3, February 2016



GCG Openweight Championship
REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED GCG OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION,
Barry Kingman
vs.
THE CHALLENGER,
Tanyu Toshusai

This is an interesting matchup between the Openweight champion and Tenyu Toshusai who is making his GCG debut here. Whether this is another BCG defection or not is yet to be seen, but with no BCG Challengers Series belt in tow one can assume. Some insiders in GCG are calling this Kingman’s swan song however and is expected to hold the Openweight title for a somewhat lengthy period as a thank you for his service over the past 8 years. If this is true, I hope there’s at least time for Snarf/Dork to make an appearance in GCG (or elsewhere). Regardless, this was an okay match but you could tell Kingman and Toshusai were not on the same page as things seemed rushed and mistimed. Kingman finished the match with a botched Black Out, which Toshusai mistimed the sell on and Kingman had to go for it a second time to make it work for the win at the 8 minute mark.
Rating - ✯✯½


Daniels & Gauge vs. SHAME

SHAME is in their second match as a team and the announce team hype the fact that this is the opportunity for the Gaijins to pick up a win and momentum they need in order to turn last month’s bad fortunes around. Haruki Kudo is quick to mention that Danjuro Kikuchi and Shotaro Ikina also had bad fortunes in the month of January, but these things are expected out of a new team - even with someone as experienced as Ikina. Fun fact: Ikina has wrestled longer than Gauge and Kikuchi have actually been alive. The four men go back and forth, but it looks like Daniels & Gauge just aren’t on the same page anymore. Kudo wonders if the losing has been getting the younger Gauge, reminding fans that Gauge is actually the Mid Atlantic Champion over in the States and has not seen such a lack of success in his career until recently. Perhaps it has been getting to him lately as Gauge seems completely disinterested in the match when Daniels in, and this is even more noticeable at the 14 minute mark when Danjuro Kikuchi locks in the Step Over Leg Bar and rather than break the submission, Gauge simply stares yelling at Daniels to get out himself. This doesn’t happen as Kikuchi locked in the middle of the ring leaving Daniels to tap out and giving the Gaijins another loss.
Rating - ✯✯½

As soon as the match ends, Greg Gauge drops from the ring apron. He doesn’t help Daniels who rolled to the outside but rather berates his partner. Gauge sees the cameraman and yells over that he’s done with the losing, he’s done with the second rate partner and he’s taking his talents where they’re appreciated and where there is pride, glory and honor. The camera cuts to commercial as quickly as it can but the damage might be done.


Azumamaro Shimizu vs. Eagle Kawasawa

Back from commercial we join this match in progress as neither announcer mentions what just happened. This is the match/angle that was reported earlier as being controversial. Ho hum match from the commercial onward as Kawasawa seems to be in control, then at the 4 minute mark he tosses Shimizu over the top rope. Referee Sadanobu Koruba gives Kawasawa a warning, but rather than taking the warning, Kawasawa screams out “NO FATHER!!” and runs and hits an amazing suicide dive to the outside on Shimizu. Koruba calls for the bell immediately, disqualifying Kawasawa who doesn’t seem to care. He is now beating on Shimizu on the outside of the ring, using the guard rail and the ring as weapons. Shimizu is busted open fairly quickly as the agent, Hito Ichihara, is out and he and Sadanobu Koruba attempt to stop Kawasawa from doing anymore damage. He pushes both of them aside, heading to the back on his own but the damage is done - to both Shimizu and perhaps GCG here as fans begin to boo what they’ve seen.
Rating - ✯½


There was a press conference earlier in the week to promote the upcoming show on J-Network East 3, Parade of Champions. The World Tag Team Championships was the focused as while Haruki Kudo is at the center of the table promoting the show, the tag belts are prominently displayed with the tag champs on one side of the table and Destruction, Inc. on the other side with their new mouth piece Munenori Umari doing most of the talking as the Samoan trio sat in silence. Haruki Kudo promoted this as one of the biggest tag matches in GCG history as Samoen Destruction, Inc. (which Umari corrected him was now doing business as simply Destruction, Inc.) would have the chance to make history and win the belts a record five times. Of course, Miyazaki and Furusawa would have to be defeated for that to happen and the tag champs promised that would never happen. There’s the usual banter of trash talking but no confrontation, just a standard GCG press conference with simple questions, photographs, trash talking and promotion of the event which will air live on J-Network East 3 in two weeks.


#1 Contendership for the World Heavyweight Championship
Jimmy Cox vs. Tasuku Iesada

The announce team hype up Tasuku Iesada, pointing out his legitimate toughman status as a former King of Fighters. Not that it matters, but it’s always nice to hear INSPIRE treated as a home of toughmen and Iesada is the first INSPIRE alumni to step foot in the Golden Canvas since the company shut down. But while he might have been the king of fighters, Kudo reminds us that Iesada is facing the king of the golden canvas, Jimmy Cox. Cox has been mentally focused as of late and a tad unhinged (although perhaps not as unhinged as Kawasawa) in his quest for the GCG World Championship and this is just another bump in the road for the former champion in his quest to return to glory. The announcers speculate that perhaps Cox is seeing the writing is on the wall for him - at 43, he might have just one more shot at the title and despite spending half of his career in GCG, moving to Japan, embracing the culture and even speaking fluent Japanese he was still considered nothing more than a gaijin by fans for the Japanese wrestler to defeat. Even in this match, there is a hushed excitement for Iesada to win and have a shot at the title and to see Jimmy Cox lose once more and it seems to be on Cox’s mind who is more brutal with every shot he throws at his opponent. If his opponent was a lesser man, those shots might have ended the match. But his opponent is Iesada who responds with stiff shots of his own. These stiff shots would actually lead to the ending as Cox goes for huge Lariat on Iesada who ducks under it and on the rebound, Iesada connects with THE STIFFEST LOOKING forearm blow to Cox’s temple that sends Cox crashing down immediately. Koruba calls for the bell immediately as Iesada stands with his arms in the air, realizing his forearm shot has made him victorious.

GCG Stars of the Golden Canvas
Episode 4, February 2016


Razan Okamoto vs. Sozen Ishinomori

The size difference between Okamoto and Ishinomori must be noted from the get-go: At 6’7, 330 pounds - Sozen Ishinomori is the largest wrestler in GCG no matter what. But when he’s fighting the smallest worker in GCG, Razan Okamoto (5’11, 191 pounds) that size difference becomes part of the match. Okamoto, who debuted last month in a six man match, was able to show more of his skills off and working against the much larger Ishinomori showed that despite his small stature, Okamoto could trade blows with the best of them. The other angle in this match, that the announce team discussed, is the fact that this matchup is between two youngsters that very well could main event for the World championship at a future Golden Kingdom and that fans need to remember where they were when Okamoto and Ishinomori first met. Exciting stuff. Anyways, stiff brawl that saw both men trade huge shots. The ending played a lot like fighting King Hippo in Punch Out as Okamoto began to throw blows at the much larger Ishinomori’s stomach careening the big man back and even doubling him over, before Okamoto impressively lifted up Ishinomori for the Brainbuster Suplex for the win.
Rating - ✯✯½

The announce team informs us that the camera crew was around earlier when GCG official Sadanobu Koruba arrived to the arena. As he walked into the dressing room, the masked Eagle Kawasawa is waiting. He bows as Koruba enters the room, whom Koruba ignores. Kawasawa quickly goes up to Koruba and begins to apologize profusely for what happened, dishonoring the family name and how he would never shame Father Koruba again. Koruba, finally realized Kawasawa is talking to him acknowledges the masked star, waving him away. Kawasawa bows, backing out of the room continually saying “I am sorry father” in Japanese. The announce crew doesn’t know quite what to make of this as Haruki Kudo comments that Kawasawa needs to stop bringing shame to his family, but more importantly to stop bringing shame to the Golden Canvas.



Hyobanshi & Makuda vs. Takayuki 2000 & SUKI

An early contender for GCG match of the year saw the established team, Hyobanshi & Makuda, take the rivals Takayuki & SUKI on in tag action. Whether or not the rivals would be able to beat the former tag champions was to be seen as the duo have only recently began teaming again. There was a real disparity between the three main eventers and Makuda. Takayuki, SUKI and Hyobanshi light it up when in the ring and Makuda, while not horrible, slows it down noticeably forcing SUKI and Takayuki to slow their own game down. It doesn’t take too much away from the show, especially since Hyobanshi is one of the best in GCG right now. This is even more highlighted when he plants Takayuki 2000 with the Nova Bomb Redux for the win.
Rating - ✯✯✯✯

We get another video of a press conference promoting Parade of Champions, this time it is to promote the World Championship match - Hiroyasu Gakusha and Taasuku Iesada. Both men are cordial with each other, there isn’t much trash talking between the two, but rather a promotion of both men’s careers up to this point and how historic of a match this is between Gakusha and Iesada, never before seen. Haruki Kudo goes to take some questions from the press, when there’s some shouting and Jimmy Cox stands amongst the press and, in English, begins to yell at Haruki Kudo. Cox calls him a fraud, the real disgrace to the Golden Canvas and remarks how Kudo and the championship committee showed their anti-American tendencies in stripping Cox’s shot over an alleged cheap shot. Kudo warns Cox he will be suspended if he doesn’t stop, which Cox ignores continuing his protest before security finally removes Cox from the press conference.





Hiroyasu Gakusha, Shingen Miyazaki and Mabuchi Furusawa vs. Tasuku Iesada and Destruction, Inc. w/Munenori Umari

The six man main event, ahead of the respective title matches on Wednesday, is set up to give fans a preview and they’re excited. While the boos reign in for Destruction, Inc as Munenori Umari sits at ringside, for the most part the crowd is excited to see Tasuku Iesada take on Furusawa, Miyazaki and Gakusha, whom are all first time opponents for Iesada. Iesada is very evenly matched with all three opponents, which excites the crowd and Destruction, Inc. manages to exchange blows with all three men as well. The end comes around the 30 minute mark when Rhino Umaga is lifted for the Gakusha Golden Bomb, but the bell rings marking a time limit draw. The announce team close up the show, hyping fans up for the show this Wednesday night and that despite the draw tonight - there will be finishes in both matches Wednesday!

Not exactly a huge fan of the Japanese scene in the C-Verse (although I have dabbled in BHOTWG and WLW) but this is a very entertaining read and have found myself coming back to it time and time again to read shows. I feel the presentation is beautiful and is just as good as the writing. Guess I'll predict even if I have very little knowledge of GCG.

GCG WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
World Champion, Hiroyasu Gakusha vs. Challenger, Tasuku Iesada
Gakusha is your ace and Iesada is a freelancer, unless you have a plan and Iesada drops the belt to someone else, Gakusha should win this.
GCG WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
World Tag Champions, Miyazaki & Furusawa vs. Challengers, Destruction, Inc.
Oh man, so tough this one. When in doubt go with the champs is all my reasoning here. Destruction Inc could easily win this one
GCG OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Openweight Champion, Barry Kingman vs. Challenger, Azumamaro Shimizu
Kingman just won this, surely he has a few defenses in him
SINGLES REMATCH
Razan Okamoto vs. Sozen Ishinomori
I'd be putting Okamoto over Ishinomori here again, I don't think Ishinomori has much of a future in GCG
SINGLES CONTEST
Eagle Kawasawa vs. Harumi Okazawaya
Eagle has more of a future in GCG, but I don't think as a big time player, maybe a future GCG champ but not an ace of the company, he doesn't have the SQ for that/
TAG TEAM EXHIBITION
Merle O'Curle & Dean Daniels vs. SHAME
Pretty easy pick here for me, SHAME are a decent pairing between a young lion and thirty two year vet, O' Curle and Daniels are jobbers
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP #1 CONTENDER'S MATCH
Takayuki 2000 vs. SUKI vs. Toshiharu Hyobanshi
I'm going to go for the youngest talent here. Tadayuki and Toshiharu are both past 36 and SUKI could have a nice match with the champ, but in reality any of these three could grab the win.

So like Dave I haven't really dabbled in the Japanese region much, but I have enjoyed the read. Actually just read it all now.

Just backing the champion in this case.

I think this is the title swap on the card. Destruction Inc have been good and this is a way to set up a strong stable.

GCG OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Openweight Champion, Barry Kingman vs. Challenger, Azumamaro Shimizu

Picking the Champion.

SINGLES REMATCH
Razan Okamoto vs. Sozen Ishinomori

Not really sure who to pick so just taking a punt here.

SINGLES CONTEST
Eagle Kawasawa vs. Harumi Okazawaya

Actually can see Eagle losing this by way of DQ but honestly he is set for a decent push now.

TAG TEAM EXHIBITION
Merle O'Curle & Dean Daniels vs. SHAME

SHAME to continue to produce and work together.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP #1 CONTENDER'S MATCH
Takayuki 2000 vs. SUKI vs. Toshiharu Hyobanshi

Got to be honest a part of me is picking him just purely because his character looks like Okada. Other than that I just think it's too early for SUKI and could also cause some divide between the two if he picks up a win.
