5. Miyu Yamashita defeated Nonoko with the Crash Rabbit Heat (8:25).

Miyu Yamashita finally got her big win over Nonoko. Yamashita said she will continue to do her best so she can become the ace of Tokyo Joshi. She then thanked Nonoko for their matches together because losing to Nonoko over and over made her more determined. Saki Akai came out with Ai Shimizu acting as her servant. Akai called Nonoko and Yamashita “Pig-san and Pelican”. She criticised Tokyo Joshi for having low quality beauty among their girls. Shimizu agreed, saying “It is as you say, Saki-sama” whenever Akai was done speaking. Yamashita challenged Akai to a match at the next show.

The former Fighting Comediens fought each other in the semi-main event. Yuka Sakazaki was joined by Ririko Kendo who was not cleared to wrestle on the show. Shoko Nakajima defied the two-on-one odds and got the victory. Sakazaki tearfully apologised to Nakajima and all three girls got along with each other again.

Saki Akai’s two step kick finisher is now called the Rookie Award.

The two new rookies Mizuho and Misao debuted in the opening match. MIZUHO seems to be going towards sex appeal while Misao wore an eye mask and green tracksuit. Going by the name Hyper Misao, the new girl said she is here to protect peace and love in Tokyo Joshi.

8. Get The Glory 2015! Round 2: FUMA defeated Goro Jr. with the Diving Headbutt (15:55).

Union held two shows in Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR today dedicated to their Get The Glory tournament. All of Union’s regular talent took part and the prize was a match of the winner’s choice taking place in Korakuen Hall on 29th April. The end result saw some big changes to the promotion’s landscape.

In the afternoon show Goro Jr. surprised everyone with a victory over Seiya Morohashi in the first round and then a hard fought contest against FUMA in the second round. Goro failed to beat the Union MAX Champion but after the match asked for the microphone. He said up until now he was Goro Jr. but from now on he wants to fight as himself. Goro unmasked and was revealed to be Yuuya Kubo, the DDT cameraman who got involved in the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title match at “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015”! After the reveal Naomi Susan invited Yumakoto to continue wrestling for Union.

Kazushi Miyamoto appeared at ringside for the second round match between SAGAT and Hiroshi Fukuda. He offered a handshake to Fukuda before the match but it was rejected. When the referee was knocked out during the match Miyamoto attacked Fukuda and told SAGAT to capitalise. Fukuda somehow recovered and pinned SAGAT with a School Boy. Miyamoto revealed after the match that he and SAGAT have been hired to create a new kingdom in Union and the mastermind would be revealed soon.

Elsewhere in the early rounds Hiroshi Fukuda beat Ryu Gouma in the battle between tambourines and statute books, Shuji Ishikawa had no problem giving Cherry the Splash Mountain and Isami Kodaka pulled out the Ocean Cyclone Suplex to beat Mio Shirai.

Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
136 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Get The Glory 2015! Semi Final: Isami Kodaka defeated Hiroshi Fukuda with a Manjigatame (10:41).
2. Get The Glory 2015! Semi Final: FUMA defeated Shuji Ishikawa with the Jawbreaker (13:52).

5. Get The Glory 2015! Final: FUMA defeated Isami Kodaka with the Diving Headbutt (15:45).

The evening show featured the final rounds of the tournament. Isami Kodaka defeated Hiroshi Fukuda in the first semi final. In the second semi final SAGAT & Kazushi Miyamoto returned to help FUMA beat Shuji Ishikawa! FUMA was revealed to be their mastermind! The trio attacked Ishikawa with a chair and FUMA finished him off with the Jawbreaker kick.

So the final was between Kodaka and the newly turned heel FUMA. The Union MAX Champ had SAGAT & Miyamoto in his corner while Kodaka had Ishikawa & Daichi Kazato by his side. The match descended into chaos when FUMA’s henchmen interfered only for Kodaka’s allies to come to the rescue. When they were all taken out of the picture Kodaka tried to beat FUMA with a German Suplex. FUMA then countered a Leg Lariat into the Jawbreaker and then hit the Diving Headbutt to win the match and the tournament.

FUMA declared himself the undisputed ace of Union for being the champion, winning the tournament and beating Union’s best wrestlers in the process. He declined his prize of choosing what match to have on 29th April. Instead he challenged Kodaka to a match in Osaka on 1st March. FUMA then named another wrestler who is part of his new unit, MEN’S Teioh! FUMA declares he will change the history of Union Pro and his new group is the centre of the company!

Seiya Morohashi got a measure of payback on Yuuya Kubo when he submitted him to win the losers Battle Royal.

6. Kota Ibushi & Daisuke Sasaki defeated Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita when Ibushi pinned Honda with the Sit Down Last Ride (18:36).

The first DDT show since “SAITAMA SUPER DDT 2015” saw some bad blood brewing for the upcoming KO-D Openweight and KO-D Tag Team Title matches. Kota Ibushi & Daisuke Sasaki beat Antonio Honda & Konosuke Takeshita in the main event. But their post-match speech was interrupted by Yoshihiko! The doll attacked both of them and left Ibushi laying with a Dragon Suplex. It then grabbed the microphone and said in a machine like voice that it will be the next KO-D Champion! After the show Ibushi said he never expected Yoshihiko would do this to him.

Yuji Okabayashi furthered his dominance of Tetsuya Endo with a singles win in the semi-main event. Danshoku Dino snuck up on Okabayashi after the match along with Daisuke Kiso wearing a Super Sasadango Machine mask (explained below). Okabayashi shrugged him off Dino’s attack and grabbed Kiso thinking he was Sasadango. He then gave Kiso the Torture Rack! Dino swore revenge and said the KO-D Tag Title match is now about more than just the belts.

Kazuki Hirata challenged HARASHIMA in a bid to improve his number of Twitter followers. HARASHIMA beat him with the Somato. HARASHIMA said in an interview backstage that he would like to regain the KO-D Title.

Makoto Oishi was a little upset that Shiori Asahi is no longer labelled as the X mystery wrestler. Asahi is fine with it but Oishi still instructed the fans to cheer for him. Asahi and Yasu Urano wound up pinning each other at the same time when the Modern Times Backslide Pin wound up with both of their shoulders pinned to the canvas.

Match #2 was turned into a No DQ match when everyone involved demanded it. An unwilling Daisuke Kiso Power Bombed DJ Nira with the help of Danshoku Dino & Super Sasadango Machine. After the match Sasadango said that the “Wrestling Cannonball 2014” movie begins screening tonight and he heard Minoru Suzuki arrived early looking for him. Sasadango took off his mask and placed it over Kiso’s face to use him as the scapegoat before quickly leaving the ring.

Team Dream Futures have earned themselves a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Title shot. Soma Takao pinned Masa Takanashi in the 8-Man Tag match and afterwards said he wants the white belts. Takanashi was pissed off that he lost and said he is not a clown. The title match will be in Osaka on 1st March.

Gota Ihashi scored an unwanted first defence of the King Of Dark Title when he lost to Suguru Miyatake. Amon Tsurumi told Miyatake after the match that he’s starting to remind him of Michael Nakazawa.

The King Of DDT tournament returns in June. The first round take place on 6th June, second round on 14th June, the semi-finals and final on 28th June.


Mio Shirai Announces Her Plan To Retire

February 17, 2015

???????????????????????????????

Mio Shirai held a press conference today to announce she will be retiring from pro wrestling in September. Shirai was accompanied by representatives from the four companies she is under contract with. There was Naomi Susan from Union, Mayumi Ozaki from Oz Academy, Tsukasa Fujimoto from Ice Ribbon and Yumi Ohka from Pro Wrestling WAVE. All four gave Mio a lot of praise for her match with her sister Io Shirai from Saturday’s “M.I.O 2” event. There will be three more “M.I.O” shows. “M.I.O 3” takes place in Osaka Ikuno Kumin Center on 9t May, “M.I.O 4” will be in Shunjuku FACE on 19th June and the final “M.I.O” show will be in Korakuen Hall on 20th September. That show will be the destination of Mio Shirai’s retirement match.

Mio made her decision to retire due to neck problems. She has suffered from numbness in her neck for over two years but was still able to wrestle thanks to her training. Her doctor said there is no official name for her condition but explained the bones in her neck sometimes become slippery which causes the numbness. Mio spent a good amount of time thinking about her decision. She and Susan joked about putting her in a singles match with Shuji Ishikawa and taking the Splash Mountain last year. Mio said she will face Ishikawa again without hesitation if she gets the opportunity.

When asked what she is going to do after wrestling, Mio said she’d like to start doing four panel manga strips about what happens in joshi waiting rooms. For her retirement match Mio hasn’t decided who she wants to wrestle or team with. However she squashed any ideas of teaming with Io again. She doesn’t think it will happen, at least right now.

Mio ended the conference with an appeal to the entire women’s wrestling world. Wrestling does not offer long careers for women. Their bodies take a lot of abuse in a short amount of time and the effects can be long lasting for them. Mio wants every joshi to wrestle because it is what they want to do and also to have no regrets when the time comes for them to leave the business. Mio was only able to show a little part of her dream to her fans but she was still able to live her dream.
