The opportunity to compete for a brand new championship means a lot to Natsumi Maki. So much so that in today’s main event she wore the wrestling gear Kairi Sane gave to her before she went to WWE! The 4 Way Match was held under elimination rules. Yuna Manase was the first to go. She attempted the Suzuki Dynamic but Maki countered it into a Rolling Cradle and Rika Tatsumi assisted with giving Manase a Facecrusher on the way down. Tatsumi was next when Yuki Kamifuku countered the Dragon Twist Of Fate into a Crucifix Pin for the upset. Maki was able to win the match entirely when she pinned Kamifuku with the Backlash. Maki said she’s only been in Tokyo Joshi Pro for half a year but there is a new wind approaching in the form of the International Princess Title. She will be a part of the new wind!
The Itoh Respect Army won today but Maki Itoh dropped a bombshell after the match. They’re splitting up! Itoh announced this to everyone but didn’t tell Mizuki about it until then so she was as surprised as everyone else. Itoh explained that they haven’t been a regular team lately so the unit should no longer exist. Also Mizuki is currently on the road to success from winning the Tokyo Princess Cup while Itoh got eliminated in the 2nd Round so that means they should be rivals. Itoh challenged Mizuki to a match at Korakuen Hall on 25th August. The two shook hands until Itoh gave Mizuki both middle fingers.
Miu Watanabe is getting stronger but she isn’t getting the wins to back her up. How strong? Strong enough to Body Slam Sakisama & Misao at the same time! However Misao put Watanabe in the Ribera Me while Sakisama submitted Raku with the Versailles Foot Choke. Watanabe called out to NEO Biishiki-gun after the match telling them that their actions are not beautiful. Misao called her a weed but Watanabe said no matter what happens to weeds they stand up again and again. She challenged them to a Princess Tag Team Titles match to prove it. Miyu Yamashita came out and told Watanabe she will be her partner. Sakisama said it is her right to choose her challengers and it is not them. They were about to leave when Yamashita asked if Sakisama was scared? Sakisama denied being scared and accepted the challenge.
The opening show announcements were interrupted when Shota came down and handed Sayuri Namba a rose with a message attached to it. The message was a receipt for NEO Biishiki-gun’s new photobook coming out this summer. Azusa Takigawa entered the ring and told Namba she has no memory of working on a photobook even though Azusa Christie appears on the cover. Tetsuya Koda ordered Takigawa to sell the photobooks anyway.
“The Gatekeeper From Hell” Demonio Uno, an old gimmick from IWA Japan, will be on the 4th August show held at a Tsurumi market. That is a very obscure gimmick to bring back.
