Takamichi Iwasa faced tough challengers like CIMA in order to form Iwasa Gundam.

The Iwasa Gundam Road to Formation is a fifteen-match trial series Takamichi Iwasa undertook in Toryumon Japan from July 2003 through October 2003.

OverviewEdit

In 2003 2003, Takamichi Iwasa was looking to align himself into a unit. For several months, it seemed that he would be taken in by Crazy MAX, as they ran him through a "Takamichi Iwasa Strengthening Campaign" for several months. When the time came for them to announce their newest recruit, they kicked Iwasa to the curve and instead chose Jun Ogawauchi. Following this betrayal, Iwasa decided to take matters into his own hands and form his own unit, which would be called Iwasa Gundam.

He quickly recruited Raimu Mishima, who had just been kicked out of Shin M2K for being terrible. The two set out to recruit more members, with Anthony W. Mori as one of their primary targets. However, they were stopped short when the Toryumon Japan office refused to recognize the group as an official unit. The duo appealed to President Takashi Okamura, who finally agreed to recognize them if Iwasa could win just a single match out of a fifteen-match series.

The task turned out to be a nightmare for the duo, in particular Iwasa. He had suddenly developed a crippling weakness to the Camel Clutch and all of his opponents in the series would lock him in the submission hold to win. While Iwasa never actually surrendered while in the move, he still lost as a result of Mishima throwing in the towel. The match against Stalker Ichikawa was considered the best chance Iwasa had at scoring the one win he needed. He had locked Ichikawa in the Camel Clutch and was about to win when disaster struck. In his excitement, Mishima accidentally dropped the towel in the ring, thereby making Ichikawa the winner by TKO.

In the final match, Iwasa faced Mishima himself, who was competing with a broken arm. In the end, Mishima locked Iwasa in the Camcel Clutch and he was forced to surrender. Because Iwasa did not win a match, Iwasa Gundam would never see the light of day as an official unit. Both when head to the United States for "warrior training." When they returned, they claimed to have found their true American heritage. Takamichi Iwasa became Michael and Raimu Mishima became Daniel. For the next few years, they would be known as The Florida Brothers.
