Bang! Pro Wrestling at Yokohama (1/7)
It’s Yokohama, which is always a good place to Bang!
The old king has not chosen one side over another. The new empress sets her sights on the Ironhearts, who have sworn revenge like they always do. There’s a new son in town, but will the First Son of the Sea pass the first paternity test in Yokohama?
JANUARY 7th, 2023: YOKOHAMA

The next competitor announced for the Conception Tournament at King’s Winter is Garry “Ray-Ray” Nelson! The slap fighting champion from Nelson County, Kentucky might not be Timo Bolamba’s son any more, since that’s now Riko Tsukino after tonight’s entry into the Infinite Paternity Gauntlet!, but he may have a shot at becoming something even greater than that! Yes, yes, I know, there’s few things better than being the son of a jet-riding crypto-billionaire referee, but this might be just that!
Yes, we are referring to the Iron Idol, Riko Tsukino, as a “son” instead of a “daughter”. Don’t question it. It’s the Infinite Paternity Gauntlet, and the nature of fatherhood in this case is already extremely questionable!
Speaking of the former son of Timo Bolamba, he appeared in tag action with the “Ace of Clubs” himself, Kazano Haruki, against the Gates of Avalon’s Sam Smart and Wally Wallace. He carried a very curious bucket that we were told was full of ocean water with a single crab. Smart and Wallace were flummoxed by the unorthodox pairing, slappings happened, and they eventually fell to pair in quick fashion.
Backstage, after the match, Nelson dumped the bucket on Jared Sykes. Rumors that there was an unearthly scream in response have yet to be verified.
The biggest event that happened on this show was the first-time meeting of the new Crownless Kingdom against the Ironhearts. Ichikawa was itching for revenge against the new Kingdom, and its leader Claire Merci. The action in this match was hot and heavy, but the newly formed Crownless Kingdom largely dominated the match, eventually resulting in Sakaragi falling victim to Powerslam Anubis and his Scales of Dominion. Anubis was barely phased by any offense delivered to him by the Ironhearts in the contest, while Ignacio el Jaguar showed off his lucha libre-inspired high flying skills.
The Ironhearts vowed revenge, because that’s the way the Ironhearts roll.
The New World Trash successfully teamed up with Amy Campbell on this show, making for a solid debut for the devil-may-care Seattle team. The Trash, who won last year’s Flynn Cup, look very impressive even if they seem to shorten their lifespans every time they get into the ring. Campbell also looked impressive, as the longest-reigning SCCW World Champion held her own against the tough-as-nails Kazuya Fukumaru.
Coral Avalon didn’t know what the hell hit him when he went up against the Don of the Deathmatch, Rory Hayes. The deathmatch specialist quickly made a mockery of the rules and common sense throughout their match, and referee Ryuunosuke Doi seemed to just let it go because he (or his sadist sister) thought it was funny. There was a bicycle. Despite getting bloodied in the contest, Avalon still won the match with the Rhongomyniad and then a Carnwennan. While the match was swiftly decided, it certainly left an indelible mark on the Crownless King. To go along with all the others, of course.
After the match, the new Crownless Kingdom led by Claire Merci came out ahead of their six-man main event. They passed by Avalon as he staggered his way to the back, and the four exchanged words with one another, but nothing of incident appeared to take place. Curiouser and curiouser…
