[Michinoku Pro][RESULTS] Tokyo Conference Vol. 6 10/19/19

Michinoku Pro returned to Shin-Kiba 1st Ring in Tokyo on October 19 for pro-wrestling action, and it was another eventful night, with history being made at the end of the night in the main event match for the prestigious Tohoku & UWA World Tag Team Titles.



In the first match Rasse faced Tatsuya Hanami. A very accomplished tag team wrestler (a former Tohoku Tag Team Champion and Chiba Six Man Tag Team Champion), it's rare to see Rasse in singles action. He does just fine wrestling solo as well however, with a 2006 Iron Man Tournament win being on his resume.



Tatsuya Hanami is a member of Chiba-based 2AW roster, and began appearing on Michinoku Pro shows this year.



The stronger of the two, Rasse controlled most of the match.



But Tatsuya Hanami resisted with a fighting spirit that caught Rasse by surprise.



In the end, Rasse's stregnth advantage proved to be too much to overcome, gaining him the victory.



Next was Jinsei Shinzaki, Nogyo Boy Raito, and Dinosaur Takuma going against The Great Sasuke, Brahman Shu, and Brahman Kei (w/ Pretty Ohta).



It didn't take long for the action to go outside the ring and into the crowd, which is exactly what the fans were waiting for.



When the action returned to the ring, Brahman Shu and Brahman Kei were in control, and they soon prepared to execute their trademark suitcase/bowling ball spot on Nogyo Boy Raito.



Their plan was intercepted by Dinosaur Takuma however, and after he, Jinsei Shinzaki, and Nogyo Boy Raito gained the upper hand, the suitcase/bowling ball spot was used against Brahman Shu and Brahman Kei, as well as Pretty Ohta.



There was one member of that team who was not a victim of that attack however- The Great Sasuke. Having had time to recover from his earlier participation in the match, he was able to re-involve himself and slap a submission on Nogyo Boy Raito, forcing him to tap out and gaining the win for his team.



In the next match, Taro Nohashi went against Tengkwa.



This was a very big moment in Tengkwa's career. Primarily wrestling in the Europe, one of his dreams has been to wrestle for Michinoku Pro. Tengkwa previously wrestled Taro Nohashi in France (winning the match), and Nohashi had enough faith in Tengkwa's talent to help him become a part of this event, his first event in Japan.



And Tengkwa did not let Taro Nohashi down, using his 15 years of experience to keep up with slightly more experienced Nohashi move for move, even outmaneuvering him at times.



Taro Nohashi won this time in their second encounter, and they showed their respect for each other after the match.



In the semi-main event, MUSASHI & Rui Hyūgaji faced Kengo & Kenbai.



This a very good match, with all of four wrestlers showing why they are some of the top talents in Michinoku Pro.



In the end, MUSASHI picked up the win for his team with a pinfall over Kenbai after delivering a Falcon Arrow.



In the main event, Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita defended the Tohoku & UWA World Tag Team Championship against Yapperman 1 & Yapperman 2. Hidaki is primarily seen in ZERO1 and Fujita wrestles for a variety promotions (including BJW and DDT), but there were in Michinoku Pro on this night to defend the championships they won in July at a 2AW event. I recently wrote about the history and value of the Tohoku & UWA World Tag Team Championship.



Yapperman 1 & Yapperman 2 have had much luck in their recent Shin-Kiba 1st Ring appearances, successfully defending the Chiba Six Man Tag Team Championship with Rasse at the July 6 event, and regaining them at the August 24 event with Rasse after losing them at a 2AW event.



This match had a lot of back and forth action, with Ikuto Hidaka & Minoru Fujita utilizing their advantage in ring experience, and Yapperman 1 & Yapperman 2 utilizing their advantage in high flying ability.



The match took a lot out of all four competitors.



In the end, the challengers rallied, and Yapperman 1 & Yapperman 2 became the new Tohoku & UWA World Tag Team Champions.



The now-former Champions congratulated them on their win in a show of respect.



Another win in Shin-Kiba 1st Ring for Yapperman 1 & Yapperman 2.
