5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Marika Kobashi Vs Hyper Misao, Nao Kakuta & Mahiro Kiryu
6. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Sakisama

This morning Tokyo Joshi Pro announced that Yuka Sakazaki will be returning to AEW for an excursion next month. Sakazaki will wrestle her match with Suzume on 1st July in Japan and afterwards will travel to America for a month long stay. It will be Sakazaki’s first time wrestling in USA since February 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic became global. Due to this absence, Sakazaki will not be entering this year’s Tokyo Princess Cup. Unless there is a change with Japan’s two week self isolation rule over travelling, Sakazaki will not be back in TJPW until after the 7th August show. She is guaranteed to be back wrestling on the 14th August Korakuen Hall show onwards. I figure there might be one or two episodes of “THAT’S J-PW” with her still in it that will air on WRESTLE UNIVERSE while she is gone.

The injury happened during the match but Kojima gutted it out until the finish, earning some respect from the senior wrestlers. Yuki Iino is moved over to the other team to fill his spot and Gota Ihashi is coming in to be on Iino’s original team.

The plan for Yuki Arai was to only wrestle one match a month. However she is going to have two more matches this month because watching the rest of her classmates in Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestling often is making her impatient. In response to this, Tetsuya Koda is booking Arai’s first singles match and her opponent will be Mirai Maiumi.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021”, 21/08/2021
Fujitsu Stadium Kawasaki

1. Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs X

The next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be held in Kawasaki Stadium. The challenger is likely going to be the winner of King Of DDT 2021. The champion himself Jun Akiyama is entering the tournament and gets to nominate his challenger if he wins it. Akiyama has gone on record wanting to choose Sanshiro Takagi as his opponent so two wrestlers in their 50s will be fighting for the championship.

I guess if you’re going to do a major outdoor show at Kawasaki Stadium you have to have Atsushi Onita in an exploding ring death match. The venue will have two rings set up with one of them being used for the explosion match.

TAMURA and Raimu Imai from HEAT-UP will both be on the show. TAMURA is an 18 year veteran while Imai only turned professional last December.

BASARA “BASARA 158 ~THE 11TH FOX PRINCE~”, 05/06/2021
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2A: Minoru Fujita Vs Daiki Shimomura

Only one Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ match is happening on this show because Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura ended in a time limit draw, eliminating both of them from the tournament. Yasu Urano receives a bye straight to the semi-finals because of this. Daiki Shimomura is coming off of the biggest upset in Round 1, beating two time Itadaki winner Ryota Nakatsu. However that was under 2 Count Rules. Can he do the same against the veteran Minoru Fujita under the normal ruleset?

1. Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ – Round 2C: Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs SAGAT

The other half of the bracket isn’t missing anything. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi is freshly motivated coming off of his 10th Anniversary show and his win over Takumi Tsukamoto in Round 1. His former ally SAGAT with his wild fighting style is waiting for him next. Meanwhile the Isami Kodaka versus FUMA rivalry is reignited with their latest battle coming up.

11. GHC Heavyweight Title – Triple Main Event III: Keiji Muto (c) Vs Naomichi Marufuji

The contracts have been signed for the three championship matches. The match order was decided by measuring the career achievements of the three current champions. That means the GHC Heavyweight Title match will be the last match on the show, the KO-D Openweight Title match will be before the GHC match and the Princess Of Princess Title match will be before the KO-D match.

Super Sasadango Machine tried to invade the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall on Saturday to negotiate who he will fight at Saitama Super Arena. Unfortunately he doesn’t understand how wrestlers are able to crash other companies and couldn’t get past the entrance because he had no ticket for the show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) Vs Marika Kobashi
2. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh

Maki Itoh has a grand vision for 121000000. She wants herself and Miyu Yamashita to hold all the championships in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Yamashita can have the Princess Title, Itoh can get back the International Princess Title and they will also take one Princess Tag Team Title belt each. Now comes the tough job, beating NEO Biishiki-gun. They did it once before in February but NEO Biishiki-gun got their win back in the Max Heart Tournament final a month later. Time for the rubber match!

Now 20 years old, Marika Kobashi is challenging for her first singles title to prove she has grown up. There is some jealousy behind the move because she didn’t like seeing Hikari Noa win the IP Title before she did.

NOAH wrestler Kaito Kiyomiya tweeted he will be at the show tomorrow. He wants to have a look at the competition for “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. He won’t find one of his opponents Konosuke Takeshita there though. He’s over in America wrestling for AEW at the moment.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021 TOUR IN NIIGATA”, 18/04/2021
Niigata Bandaishima Multipurpose Plaza

1. Toru Owashi & Yuki Iino Vs Hideki Okatani & Toui Kojima
2. Kazusada Higuchi, Yukio Sakaguchi & Saki Akai Vs Akito, Yukio Naya & Keigo Nakamura

5. “Celebrity Of Niigata” Super Sasadango Machine Local Triumphant Return!: Super Sasadango Machine, Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda Vs Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Mad Paulie
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi

Just to remind everyone, the leader of Junretsu is Makoto Oishi, not Jun Akiyama. However Oishi hasn’t achieved the results that a man with his position should be getting. He can spin that around by winning the KO-D Tag Team Titles with Akiyama right before the Ultimate Tag League 2021 begins. What motivates Akiyama to win is so he can appear on the cover of Weekly Pro-Wrestling again with a cool picture this time. The cover of the current issue shows his head stuck in Danshoku Dieno’s tights and he finds it embarrassing. HARASHIMA is excited to defend the tag titles in Niigata for the first time ever. Yuji Okabayashi is excited to fight against the mighty Akiyama & Oishi. Both Akiyama and HARASHIMA will not let the result of this match shake their confidence going into “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”.

BASARA “BASARA 155 ~GLITTER~”, 20/04/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

4. IRON FIST Tag Titles: Isami Kodaka & Daiki Shimomura (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu & SAGAT
5. Union MAX Title: Takumi Tsukamoto (c) Vs Masato Kamino

A big test for Takato Nakano fresh off of his match with Isami Kodaka. If it is his time to step up a level then beating FUMA would do that for him.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “YES! WONDERLAND 2021 ~WE ARE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR DREAMS~”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Yuki Arai Debut Match: Yuki Arai Vs X

This week Tokyo Sports reported that SKE48 idol Yuki Arai was going to attend this weekend’s Tokyo Joshi Pro show in Korakuen Hall. Arai, who in 2018 wrestled a match in DDT and is a former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion, was expected to announce she was joining TJPW to become an active pro wrestler and her “re-debut” match was taking place on 4th May. TJPW pushed their announcement to today and confirmed the news is true.

Arai’s previous involvement with pro wrestling outside of DDT was with the Tofu Pro Wrestling project where she used the name Bubbly Arai. When she had her match in DDT, Sanshiro Takagi was impressed with her performance and has held discussions with SKE48 management since then over getting her to continue wrestling. Arai wants to work as both an idol and a pro wrestler so for the moment her deal is to wrestle one match a month while Miyu Yamashita helps trains her. She is currently preparing her theme music and wrestling outfit. One of her goals is to avenge losing the Iron Man Title to Maki Itoh. Also attending the show is another SKE48 idol, Jurina Matsui. She will be there to support Arai.

DDT “MAX BUMP 2021”, 04/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Jun Akiyama, Makoto Oishi & Yusuke Okada Vs HARASHIMA, Toru Owashi & Kazuki Hirata
2. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Sanshiro Takagi, Yukio Naya, Chikara & Nabe Yakan (c) Vs X, X, X & X
3. DDT Extreme Title & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Chris Brookes (E/c) Vs Saki Akai (I/c)
4. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Soma Takao

Yuki Ueno is taking it personally when Soma Takao calls him a weak champion. He’s beaten some amazing wrestlers in his title reign and he feels bad for them when Takao pinned him at Korakuen last weekend. It’s a frustrating feeling but it made him think. It would be frustrating for Takao is if he loses to the “weak champion” in a main event championship match at Korakuen Hall. So Ueno convinced Hisaya Imabayashi to make the DDT UNIVERSAL Title match the main event of “MAX BUMP 2021”. Takao complained and said he should be fighting the weak champion in the dark match. He agreed to it anyway because he thinks Ueno will only nominate weak replacements if he turned it down. He got under Ueno’s skin further by pouring a drink over his head during the press conference.

The double title match will not have any extra stipulations added to it. Chris Brookes decided it will be a normal singles match after he thought about Saki Akai’s challenge to him last week. He found out Akai last had a singles title match five years ago and she only got the shot by winning a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament. He has a lot of respect for her and wants to show it by facing her in a regular rules match. Akai understands she might lose this match 99 times out of 100 but she will take that chance to become a double champion.

Kikutaro will be on the show. He had trouble travelling to America last month using an ESTA instead of his work visa because it expired. The immigration officer checking him believed he was trying to enter the country illegally to work. Kikutaro claims he was only visiting to sort out a matter with his home in Las Vegas. The result was Kikutaro getting detained for two days and then deported back to Japan. He thinks he was discriminated against and is trying to clear his name through the Japanese Embassy. For now he has to stay in Japan.

DDT “ULTIMATE TAG LEAGUE 2021 IN KORAKUEN HALL!!”, 09/05/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Yusuke Okada
2. Naomi Yoshimura Return Match: HARASHIMA & Naomi Yoshimura Vs Yuki Ueno & MAO
3. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda
4. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino

Naomi Yoshimura gets his wish. Yuki Ueno will be one of his opponents in his return match. DISASTER BOX will be further represented with HARASHIMA involved. There’s no hard feelings over Ueno leaving the unit for The 37KAMIINA. At least I don’t think there is. MAO will do something to annoy them probably.
