February 8, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 08/02/2020
Aichi NGK Sports Plaza 3rd Stadium
248 Fans

1. Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma & Haruna Neko defeated Mizuki, Suzume & Sena Shiori when Nakajima pinned Suzume with the Northern Lights Suplex (10:16).
2. Yuna Manase & Mirai Maiumi defeated Hyper Misao & Pom Harajuku when Manase pinned Harajuku with the Suzuki Dynamic (7:42).
3. Miu Watanabe defeated Raku with the Tear Drop (8:30).
4. Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa defeated Rika Tatsumi & Mahiro Kiryu when Shirakawa pinned Kiryu with the Implant DDT (10:36).
5. Saki Akai defeated Hikari Noa with a Triangle Choke (9:09).
6. Miyu Yamashita defeated Natsumi Maki with the Backward Kick (9:24).
7. Yuka Sakazaki & Maki Itoh defeated Lana Austin & Yuki Aino when Sakazaki pinned Aino with the Magical Girl Splash (9:51).

Losing a tooth in Alabama is not getting Yuka Sakazaki down. She’s still winning matches and letting Lana Austin know what she is getting into when the Princess Of Princess Title match takes place next Tuesday. Austin has a few tricks of her own though. She caught the opposing team off guard when she used Maki Itoh as a launching step to hit Sakazaki with the Poetry In Motion. Yuki Aino tried to capitalize but Sakazaki took over and got the victory.

In the rematch between Miyu Yamashita and Natsumi Maki, Yamashita wasted no time in testing her opponent. Maki was more motivated today and put up a better fight. But Yamashita came out the winner again, this time using the Backward Kick for the pin. After today’s match Yamashita is now satisfied and thinks she fought the proper version of Natsumi Maki. The match was so much fun this time around that Yamashita wants another rematch, this time in Tokyo. Maki likes the idea. She still wants to beat Yamashita using her own one of a kind techniques.

Saki Akai praised Hikari Noa for putting up a good fight against her. Noa had Akai grounded with the Cobra Twist but Akai countered it into a Triangle Choke to get the win.

Raku wasn’t able to get her first win today. She was left feeling a little frustrated after losing to Miu Watanabe.

Rumours went around that an agent for a nearby fashion show was in the audience. Yuna Manase, Mirai Maiumi, Hyper Misao and Pom Harajuku all made poses during their match in the hopes of getting noticed. Even the referee was tempted to strut across the ring. It turned out to be a trap for Misao & Harajuku to ambush Manase & Maiumi but it didn’t work out in the end.

In the opening match Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma & Haruna Neko were put on the same team because they are all under 150cm in height.

3. Isami Kodaka Vs Shigehiro Irie
4. FUMA, Yusuke Kubo & SAGAT Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Minoru Fujita & Daiki Shimomura

Fuminori Abe hasn’t been pinned since December. Ryota Nakatsu is coming off of a loss to Isami Kodaka. I’m thinking Abe is closing in on a Union MAX Title shot.

DDT “ISN’T IT DRAMATIC 2020”, 24/02/2020
Nagoya City East Sports Center

1. Hiroshi Yamato Vs Keigo Nakamura

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. Ganpro World Tryout: Shin Suzuki Vs E10

4. Ganpro Vs Pro Wrestling BASARA Full Battle: Kouki Iwasaki & Washi Sakurai Vs Ryuichi Sekine & Tetsuo Usui
5. Ganpro Vs TTT Full Battle: Ken Ohka Vs Guts Ishijima
6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Yumehito Imanari

For fuck sake Guts Ishijima, stick to one affiliation please! He formed TTT (Total Triumph Team) in December and the promotion held its first show on 25th January. That explains why the Real GUTS Army angle got a bit wonky for the last couple of shows with the enemy team constantly changing its name and intentions.

With THE HALFEE idea now put on the shelf, Shuichiro Tominaga & Moeka Haruhi are going back to their regular ring names. However Shuhei Washida has taken to the name Washi Sakurai and wants to stick with it.

When Shota went on tour in Australia last year he wrestled for a promotion called Pro Wrestling Power in Cairns, Queensland. One of the locals who caught his attention goes by the name of E10. He is coming over to Japan later this month for a tryout in Ganbare☆Wrestling. E10 is 178cm tall, weighs 77kg and his signature moves are the Side Effect and the Frog Splash.

DDT “DRAMATIC SHINYURESE 2020”, 28/02/2020
Kanagawa Shinyuri Twenty One Hall

1. HARASHIMA & Makoto Oishi Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Hiroshi Yamato
2. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: MAO Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. Shinyuri Specialty! Two Major Singles Match: Tetsuya Endo Vs Akito

Two big singles matches are set for Kanagawa. If it happened today then Akito’s Right To Challenge Gauntlet is on the line. MAO might be the KO-D Openweight Champion by the time the show takes place.

DDT “DDT DOES NOT KNOW GUNMA YET 2020”, 29/02/2020
Gunma Yamada Green Dome Maebashi Sub Event Area

1. ALL OUT Vs Eruption!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai
2. The First Leap Year Of Reiwa! Inevitable Laughter Once Every 4 Years Ultra Super Mechanko Special 4 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Kazuki Hirata Vs Kazusada Higuchi
3. Akagi Mountain Is Also Tonight! Maebashi Specialty Special Single Match: Yutaka Yoshie Vs Yuki Iino

Big boys collide in Maebashi! Yutaka Yoshie made his first appearance in DDT last year in a comedy match involving a daruma and a kokeshi. This time it’s a more serious challenge in the form of Yuki Iino.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STAND PROUD”, 01/03/2020
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. International Princess Title: Thunder Rosa (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima

A message was sent to the Tokyo Joshi Pro office by Thunder Rosa earlier today. She nominates Shoko Nakajima as the No. 1 Contender for the International Princess Title. The two previously faced each other for the Princess Of Princess Title back in May last year. Nakajima won the match and Rosa wants revenge. She thinks she has the upper hand because this time she is the champion and Nakajima is the challenger.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Chris Brookes Vs Maku Donaruto
2. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs Kazuki Hirata
3. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

There’s another Australian heading over to Japan soon, this one for DDT. Melbourne high flyer Royce Chambers will be in DDT from 1st to 20th March. His acrobatic moves and matches from Melbourne Championship Wrestling have been getting attention online and impressed the likes of Konosuke Takeshita. DDT is bringing in Chambers on Takeshita’s recommendation. Chambers is 180cm tall, weighs 86kg and has only been wrestling for two years.

Yuni closes out the childhood portion of his wrestling life by facing his career rival Kazuki Hirata.

Thanks for sticking with DDT, Brookes. Here’s Maku Donaruto for you.


MAO’s Thoughts On Tanaka, Hole Brothers Chasing Gold, STRONGHEARTS/DAMNATION Further Their Alliance

Yuka Sakazaki will be wrestling on AEW Dynamite tomorrow night. She’ll be back in Japan this weekend to prepare for her another preview match against Lana Austin.

Raku begins her quest to win a match. Miu Watanabe won’t go light on her just because they are both Up Up Girls.

A bunch of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster had cameos on the latest episode of the CBS cop drama S.W.A.T. I’m not making this up. Miyu Yamashita fights a detective inside Robot Restaurant while Shoko Nakajima tries to pull a gun on the guy from Better Off Ted. I swear I’m not making this up!

7. Harashimao Vs ALL OUT!: HARASHIMA & MAO Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Yuki Iino

Cody Hall gets his hands on one half of the KO-D Tag Team Champions. He should be careful though. If Yuki Ueno beats him then Ueno takes the black Right To Challenge Gauntlet from Hall.

6. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: Masato Tanaka (c) Vs MAO

MAO said he is honored to be competing for the KO-D Openweight Title less than 5 years into his pro wrestling career. Masato Tanaka has been wrestling since before MAO was born. MAO saw him for the first time on TV Asahi’s “World Pro Wrestling” television program back in 2010. He thinks Tanaka is one of the people who made him dream of becoming a pro wrestler so this will be a very special match. Also MAO believes the core of DDT is now made up of the DNA generation with Konosuke Takeshita and Tetsuya Endo right in the centre. Winning the KO-D Title will make MAO join the centre. Tanaka wants MAO to deliver his strange brand of wrestling because he does not want to lose against that style.

The #STRONGHEARTS return to continue their business partnership with DAMNATION. They face ALL OUT with their honorary member Chihiro Hashimoto in an Elimination Tag match. Hopefully Yuki Iino has gotten over his problems with Hashimoto. Also Shunma Katsumata is back from his minor surgery. Elsewhere CIMA teams up with Soma Takao, who used to wrestle as BIMA in his college club days.

DDT “ISN’T IT DRAMATIC 2020”, 24/02/2020
Nagoya City East Sports Center

1. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 4th Match – Rocky Of Naniwa II Vs Human Torpedo II: Saki Akai Vs Miranda Gordy
2. DDT Senbatsu-gun Vs Nagoya & Kengo Takai-gun: X & X Vs Kengo Takai & X
3. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Danshoku Dieno & Cody Hall

Hall joined forces with Danshoku Dieno to form The Hole Brothers. This is all part of Dieno’s plan to win every championship he can in DDT. The first target in his sight is the KO-D Tag Titles held by Nautilus.

A sudden challenge has been made by Nagoya wrestler Kengo Takai. He is bringing a team with him to take on a selection of DDT wrestlers.

DDT “DRAMATIC RED READY! 2020”, 01/03/2020
Osaka Hirano Community Hall

1. Yuni Kid Wrestler Graduation Match: Yuni Vs X
2. KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata & Yuki Iino (c) Vs Tetsuya Endo, T-Hawk & El Lindaman

The #STRONGHEARTS/DAMNATION alliance continue with a KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles shot. This all seems to be Tetsuya Endo’s idea. His work with T-Hawk & El Lindaman lately has worked out so far.

CIMA and Maku Donaruto will be on the show. Put them in the same match. Don’t put Donaruto with Yuni!

DDT “KAZUKI HIRATA 10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW! 10 YEARS OF HIRATA GO!!”, 14/03/2020
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty School 2nd School Hall

4. Synchronized Reunion! 10 Years OF HIRATA GO!: Kazuki Hirata & Keisuke Ishii Vs YO-HEY & Kenshin Chikano

I should figure out how long Kazuki Hirata has been doing his gimmick for. Is it longer than Magnum TOKYO at this point?

Katsumi Tamagawa will be the referee for the main event.

FUMA, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Kouki Iwasaki will be on the show.

Aichi NGK Sports Plaza 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita Vs Natsumi Maki

The first meeting was a decisive win for Miyu Yamashita. She welcomes the rematch with Natsumi Maki but only if Maki is fully motivated for it. Whether it is because of ring rust or a mental block, the version of Maki she defeated was not the one who was top tier in the roster before her injury.

Saki Akai will be on the show.

A group of the DDT wrestlers like to visit saunas together during their free time during tours. Konosuke Takeshita, Shunma Katsumata, MAO & Yuki Ueno usually tweet about their sauna adventures using the hashtag #DDTサウナ部. Their bond has grown so strong that they now will team up for matches. Sadly Katsumata is currently out of action getting a metal plate removed from his cheekbone so he has to miss this one.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

The theme of Gake no Fuchi in 2020 is “I Want To Help Those Who Are In Need With Pro Wrestling”. Miyako Matsumoto is continuing this theme by using pro wrestling to find a potential bride for Chikara. This came about when Chikara took part in a rap battle and owned himself by admitting he can’t get married. The “bride” in question is Mao from the idol group Senosister. She describes herself as the Atsushi Onita of the idol world, having attended a Super FMW show in 2016 and getting Onita’s “holy water” thrown at her. She saw a picture of Chikara and was turned off because he looks like her uncle. Nevertheless, she agreed to attend the next show because her rent is due and she wants the money. Munenori Sawa was also invited to help out.

He came out of the match still carrying the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title over his shoulder. Ken Ohka congratulated him at the end of the show. He also reminded him that he is a former champions and something he will definitely win it back. Ishii said he will always be waiting for Ohka’s challenge.

Ohka and Intelligence Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4 had been arguing with each other on Twitter in the build up to their tag match. They demanded that the other apologised and continued to do so several times during the match. There were points when Kouki Iwasaki and Kengo Takai stepped in and told their partners not to apologise otherwise it would be like giving up. Passion had the back of his trunks pulled down after a Sunset Flip from Ohka. His backside stayed exposed for the rest of the match. Ohka ended up pinning him and wanted to shake his hand afterwards. When Passion wouldn’t do it, Ohka left the ring. But Shota then appeared and helped Passion up to his feet.

A giddy Yumehito Imanari wanted to shake Nightshade’s hand before their match. Nightshade gave him the middle finger in a move that would make Maki Itoh proud. Nightshade hit the Neck Hanging Bomb and the Diving Senton to win. Imanari thanked Nightshade for wrestling him. He begged her to come back to Japan and become a regular foreign member of Pocchari Joshi.

6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Chris Brookes
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Yuki Iino

Yuki Iino won last weekend’s Gauntlet match to get the KO-D Openweight Title shot.

Jiro Kuroshio’s dad requested that Jiro and Konosuke Takeshita team together for Jiro’s final match in DDT. Takeshita agreed to it as long as Antonio Honda could be one of their opponents. Honda accepted the offer because he already has a tag team with Miyu Yamashita.

Honda was supposed to be in Match #3 but he pulled out to do the Kuroshio match. Danshoku Dieno takes his place as Super Sasadango Machine’s tag partner.

There is a problem with the Battle Royal. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title was supposed to be defended in it for the sake of Souken’s Michiaki Nakano. However Dieno is now the champion and he is booked on the match afterwards. So what does Nakano have to fight for?
