I have gathered all the results of matches from shows in 2018 that have had FREEDOMS as well as former FMW/WMF/Apache Army wrestlers working in them and will continue to update it for the rest of the year. It can be found at http://fmwwrestling.us/MiscResults18.html (Last updated: 2/16)

Added: 1/30

Atsushi Onita held a press conference on January 18, 2018 at the House of Councilors in Saga City to announce that he would be running for mayor of the city of Kanzaki which is located in the Saga prefecture. Onita stated that his mother is from Saga and that is the location his mother was born and the location he will be buried in. Onita is scheduled to run as an independent and he has been backed by a member of the House of Representatives Kazuhiro Haraguchi. 

Onita promised six things for Kanzaki if he were to be elected mayor of the city. The first would be build a 5 billion (50 Million USD) new town hall. The second would be there would be that none of his administration would have the distinction that they were above the citizens, the third would be a publicity for the Kanzaki brand, the fourth would be reduction of school supplies needed for the students as well as resume that school meals will be supplied by all schools. The fifth would be a Kanzaki City increase population plan, and the sixth would be enhancement of medical welfare for support elderly and disabled people. The election would be on April 15th so I would imagine if he were actually asked to attend WrestleMania in New Orleans on April 8th that he would unable to anyway with how close it is to the election. 

Atsushi Onita appeared on January 27, 2018 the UWF Snake Pit in Koenji, Tokyo where UWF training takes place for a talk event. This was symbolic as it was 30 years after Onita went to a UWF show in Osaka when he was challenging UWF and was told he could not go into the building because he did not have a ticket for the show and was sent away. Shigeo Miyato a former UWF wrestler who runs the Snake Pit Gym participated in the talk show with Onita revealed to Onita that he was the wrestler at the entrance that told Onita he could not come in because he did not have a ticket. They talked about if FMW were to ever become a movie that interaction between the two would be the first scene of the movie as it would eventually lead to FMW and the Death Match wrestling that followed with both laughing about everything that came from it. Onita and Miyato took pictures with the fans afterwards. 

Keiji Muto's Pro-Wrestling Masters promotion will have an FMW vs. Fujiwara-Gumi match on their February 16, 2018 show at Korakuen Hall as Tetsuhiro Kuroda, Hideki Hosaka, and Ricky Fuji who will be called the FMW Masters team will be taking on the Fujiwara-Gumi team of Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Kazuo Takahashi, and Takaku Fuke in a six man tag team match. Hisakatsu Oya will also be on the show as he takes on former FMW Jr. Heavyweight Champion Takuma Sano. 

ZERO1 would run their first Super Fireworks show since November 3rd as they would return to the Osaka Prefectural Gym # 2 with a main event of Bakuha-ō King Champion Yuko Miyamoto taking on World Heavyweight Champion Yusaku Obata in a Double Titles Exploding Baseball Bats Death Match. Miyamoto would pick up Obata for the Fire Thunder but Obata would manage to escape and deliver a kick to the back of then the head of Miyamoto. Obata would charge at Miyamoto again but Miyamoto would grab him and then manage to hit the Fire Thunder on Obata. Obata and Miyamoto would eventually both grab exploding barbed wire bats and at the same time would both hit each other causing them both to be knocked out and the match would be declared a Draw after a Double KO at 14 minutes with the referee raising both wrestlers hands. Obata will defend his World Heavyweight Title on February 12th against Isami Kodaka. 

Chigusa Nagayo who was declared the first Bakuha-ō Queen Champion by Atsushi Onita on August 13, 2017 would end up losing her title in a 4 Way Exploding Barbed wire Baseball Bat Death Match to Yoshiko when Yoshiko would get the win at 15 minutes, 21 seconds after pinning Akane Fujita who was also in the match. This look to setup a future match between Yoshiko and Nagayo for the title.

GENTARO would then deliver a dive over the top rope onto the outside on to all the wrestlers on the outside. Sasaki would then pick up Fukimoto for the Michinoku Driver II but Fukimoto would manage to kick out.

Kamui would go up against Gunso with Kamui's game plan of taking the match to the outside and then making sure Gunso could not get back in as Kamui would deliver a drop kick to Gunso as soon as he would get back on the apron until the referee would count to 20 and reward the victory to Kamui at 11 minutes, 55 seconds via Count Out.

I got married on January 14, 2018 and I was asked what kind of groomsmen cake I could have. It could be any design I want so naturally I chose to have an FMW ring with the Lightning Bolt logo. Sadly, she was unable to place the FMW letters on the apron but I feel it still came out looking good for a cake. My wife also ended up grabbing one of my Hayabusa figures and placing it in the ring as well as getting the DJ to play the Hayabusa theme song while we cut the cake which I did not know was going to happen. Here's a link to the video of us cutting the cake with the Hayabusa music playing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtRzH95ugYQ
