On the last show Yuki Aino shocked Miyu Yamashita (and Maki Itoh) by beating her clean in the ring. Yamashita wants a singles match to avenge that loss and prove to Itoh that she will be at her best when its time for “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”. Aino beating her again would throw everything off course.

Yuki Arai is back after a month of Covid related setbacks.

Nobody expected YuuRI to sign with Ganbare☆Pro after she left JUST TAP OUT. It goes to show not all of the movements going on in joshi right now are heading towards the same destination. She gets an established opponent from the get go, taking on Cherry in her first scheduled Ganpro match.

4. DAMNATION Dissolution Match: X Vs X
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

This is the end for DAMNATION. They are forced to split up after losing the final of the DRAMATIC SURVIVOR tournament. What their final match will be and who will be involved is currently a mystery.

Jun Akiyama recently made the shocking confession of wanting to team with Yoshihiko! He admitted he would rather do this than challenge for the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles.

The Pheromones have been teasing the addition of a third member to their team. Whoever it is will be showing up at Korakuen Hall!

DDT “GET ALIVE 2021”, 12/10/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles: Yoshiaki Yatsu, Akito, Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura (c) Vs Jun Akiyama, Yusuke Okada, Mizuki Watase & Hideki Okatani
2. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs Minoru Fujita

Well Akiyama is challenging for the 8-Man Tag Titles anyway. He would rather the other four members of Junretsu fight for it but Makoto Oishi is injured long term so Akiyama has to be there. Maybe a first time in-ring meeting with Yoshiaki Yatsu will motivate him. The Olympics in Japan is now completely finished but can the champions keep their flame burning?

Welcome to the alternate reality where Osaka Pro Wrestling still exists and has Jun Akiyama and Yusuke Okada both under contract. They’re going to have a local battle against Magnitude Kishiwada & Inaba no Buffalo. Kishiwada in particular is rather proud of being “Osaka’s Strongest Wrestler”. Time to put that to the test.

0. Urgent Decision Match: Yuna Manase defeated YuuRI with the Suzuki Dynamic (3:59).
1. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori defeated Tokiko Kirihara with a 2nd Rope Diving Body Press (8:10).
2. 3 Way Match: Hong Kong Domestic Ladies Police Man defeated Hong Kong International Ladies Police Man and Hong Kong International Undercover Mafia when Domestic Ladies Police Man pinned Undercover Mafia with the Spear (8:07).
3. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii defeated Shinichiro Tominaga with the Tiger Suplex (10:55).
4. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari defeated Cherry & Shota when Mongol pinned Cherry with the Diving Senton onto a chair (13:02).
5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE defeated Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi when HARUKAZE pinned Manase with the Fire Spear (11:57).

There was good moments and bad moments for Yuna Manase on today’s Ganbare☆Joshi show. The bad moment was losing to HARUKAZE in the main event. Yuu Yamagata cut down Manase with a Buzzsaw Kick and HARUKAZE finished her off with the Fire Spear. This is the first time HARUKAZE has beaten Manase. Yamagata rubbed the result in Manase’s face and said Ganjo only became interesting when she showed up. Yamagata isn’t the wrestler she used to be but she isn’t ever going to let Manase beat her! Moeka Haruhi had to motivate Manase to do her best because that is what Ganbare means. Manase agreed and promised to get stronger, beat Yamagata and return HARUKAZE to Ganjo!

The good news for Manase and Ganjo happened at the start of the show. Manase’s opening speech was interrupted when suddenly YuuRI entered the ring. The former JUST TAP OUT wrestler surprised everyone even further when she announced that as of today she is now signed to Ganbare☆Pro! Manase didn’t know about this but is happy to have a new companion in Ganjo. They agreed to an impromptu match which Manase won. She told YuuRI afterwards to never give up on Ganbare☆Joshi. Backstage YuuRI explained why she signed with Ganpro instead of another company that fans were expecting she would go to. She is the only woman in Ganpro who is under 30 and she wants to freshen up the promotion while also showing her strength.

Both Makoto and Itsuki Aoki were unable to be at the show so they were replaced with Hong Kong Domestic Ladies Police Man and Hong Kong International Ladies Police Man. The Hong Kong International Police Man that was replacing Choun-Shiryu turned out to be crooked. His true identity is Hong Kong International Undercover Mafia. He may have attempted a hit on Ken Ohka. He definitely paid off the referee in a failed attempt to win.

Tomorrow either DISASTER BOX, DAMNATION, Junretsu or The 37KAMIINA will be no more. A fan vote on DDT’s Twitter account has DISASTER BOX as the “favourites” to lose everything and break up. Remember, if the losing team features either the KO-D Tag Team Champions or KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions then those belts must be vacated too!

5. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & Moeka Haruhi Vs Yuu Yamagata & HARUKAZE

Yuna Manase already got a small piece of HARUKAZE ever since the latter betrayed Ganbare☆Joshi to join Yuu Yamagata’s side. Manase still wants HARUKAZE to come back to her senses so her anger is aimed more at Yamagata. What position Moeka Haruhi will take in this situation remains to be seen.

So does the rest of the shows in September have to change some of their matches when one of the units splits up or will there be a farewell period for the losing group? DDT hasn’t said either way.

Now that “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” is in the rear view mirror, DDT is starting to shake up a little bit with new champions, new youth, a new team and the threat of existing alliances getting torn apart. We’ll get to each one show by show.

7. DRAMATIC SURVIVOR ~ Losers Advance 8-Man Tag Team Tournament – Decision Match: Losers Of Match #1 Vs Losers Of Match #2

The name of the show isn’t just there to sound cool. The Dramatic Survivor Unit tournament was revealed to be a reverse bracket where the losing teams advance to the final. Win a match and your team is safe, lose all your matches and your unit must split up! Sanshiro Takagi came up with the idea to avoid DDT getting stale. He wants all the teams to fight for survival and there is no bigger motivation than the survival of your unit! To make things even more riskier, if a champion team is in the disbanding unit they will be forced to vacate their titles too! So if The 37KAMIINA lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D Tag Team Titles. If DAMNATION lose and splits up they vacate the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles. For Junretsu and DISASTER BOX there will be no championships stripped.

2. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase
3. DDT Extreme Title: Shinya Aoki (c) Vs Kazuki Hirata
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino

Back at the Beer Garden shows Danshoku Dieno and Yuki Iino appealed to form a tag team. Their request wasn’t met because they couldn’t come up with a suitable or tasteful team name. Well today they have their team name and also nicknames to match. From now on Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno & Yuki “Sexy” Iino are Pheromones! They immediately challenged Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata for the KO-D Tag Titles and got their shot so they would stop annoying the champions.

If the KO-D Tag Titles happen to be vacated because The 37KAMIINA lose the Dramatic Survivor tournament, then the match will be changed into a decision bout to determine the new champions. So at least Takeshita & Katsumata have a chance to reclaim the belts after they are forced to give them up.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP? 2021”, 26/09/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Masahiro Takanashi DDT Return Match: Masahiro Takanashi, Toru Owashi & Danshoku “Dandy” Dieno Vs Yukio Sakaguchi, Saki Akai & Antonio Honda
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Chris Brookes

The new KO-D Openweight Champion Takeshita took some time to reflect on his latest accomplishment. After finally beating Jun Akiyama, the KO-D Title belt now has a different weight to it and Takeshita feels a different responsibility when it comes to defending it. He is in his best condition because of this pressure and is ready to take on Chris Brookes. He hasn’t beaten Brookes since July 2019 when he defended the KO-D Title against him back then. Brookes has won every singles match they’ve had together since then, which were either championship or tournament matches.

Masahiro Takanashi has become active again since coming back from injury. Not in the ring though because ChocoPro doesn’t have one. He wrestles his first match in DDT since March 2020.

1. DDT Universal Title: Daisuke Sasaki (c) Vs X

After stealing the belt multiple times over the last month, Daisuke Sasaki in now officially the DDT Universal Champion. His first title defence will be on 12th October and he has the right to choose his challenger. He chose CM Punk but DDT cannot make that happen for multiple reasons. Sasaki then picked Minoru Fujita as his back-up choice. Fujita beat Sasaki at July’s DAMNATION produced show so Sasaki wants to avenge that loss. The match is not official yet but DDT will send the challenge over to Fujita.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

I am aiming to have a preview written and posted by Thursday night at the latest.

The main event will have Kenta Kobashi at ringside to witness the KO-D Openweight Title match. Whenever he shows up for big matches involving Jun Akiyama, Akiyama usually wins so he is kind of a good luck charm for him. That isn’t meant to be the intention of his appearances though. Last time he appeared in DDT he was invited by Tetsuya Endo to give advice for fighting against Akiyama.

Yuki Ueno briefly had the DDT Universal Title returned to him during today’s press conference. Hisaya Imabayashi convinced Daisuke Sasaki to send the belt back in order to sign the match contract but Sasaki did not attend the signing. Instead he sent a video message that Ueno watched. That turned out to be a trap and Sasaki was in the room all along! He ambushed Ueno, stole the belt and ran off with it yet again!

Saki Akai is determined to win the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles and silence those who are uncomfortable with her wrestling against men. Like Yuji Hino for example. He thinks having a woman on the team is like taking part in a Handicap match. Akai admits she is afraid of taking Chops from Yuji Hino (and he swears he won’t Chop her because it would result in murder) but she needs to overcome those fears to become a champion again. Yukio Sakaguchi credits Akai for burning a fire within himself and Kazusada Higuchi that they have been missing recently. That has been shown during Sakaguchi’s clashes with Soma Takao. They may have to face a cruel reality though. Endo has warned that he has only gotten better since the title match was put together. DAMNATION’s comments made Akai mad and she slapped the rest of Eruption to fire them up.

There has been an attempt by DDT recently to put together more hardcore matches. Jun Kasai has watched some and feels lukewarm towards them. They’re a bit too relaxed for his tastes. But rumours are going around that Kasai has a low pain threshold for stepping on Lego. Shunma Katsumata brought it up and Kasai avoided the topic by saying he never feels pain when he is in front of an audience. MAO wants to prove there is nothing “relaxed” about DDT’s hardcore style. Chris Brookes thinks he is being ignored because he doesn’t feature in the hype video for the match.

The youngsters from the DDT Teenage Project want to make an impact. Ilusion promises to make that impact and be the standout of the match so he can become the symbol of the project. El Unicorn is the smallest wrestler in the match but wants to be in the ring with the likes of Yuji Okabayashi and Naomi Yoshimura. They’re not the only teenagers in the match. Reimu Imai is 16 years old and looks forward to hitting the larger opponents with all he’s got. TAMURA is fascinated to see how these teenagers will fare. HARASHIMA is excited to see DDT run a big show outdoors and it reminds him of the other outdoor shows DDT has held throughout his time with them.

Oh the betrayal! HARUKAZE got Yuu Yamagata’s message loud and clear, ditching Yuna Manase after all they did to build up Ganbare☆Joshi together. Now HARUKAZE is siding with Yamagata to learn how to become stronger. Manase still has Moeka Haruhi to rely on and they will fight to bring HARUKAZE back to Ganjo.

Makoto is also sticking around for a while as part of Yamagata’s group. That’s a woman with a lot of different links and connections in the industry so not all of her matches will be attached to the Manase/Yamagata feud.

Kazuki Hirata gets a DDT Extreme Title shot after threatening to quit DDT and leave all of the jobs nobody else wants to do. He also wants Shinya Aoki to come up with a match stipulation that can allow even the weakest wrestler like Hirata an even chance to win. He swears it’s to make the match more exciting before Aoki beats him.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”, 09/10/2021
Tokyo Ota Ward Gymnasium

1. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Itoh

Doesn’t matter how battered and bruised she is right now because Maki Itoh could not be happier. After winning the Tokyo Princess Cup she will now face Miyu Yamashita for the Princess Of Princess Title at Ota Ward Gymnasium. Yamashita is amazed at how strong Itoh has become and she wants to beat this version of her. They’ve had several singles matches before including two Princess Title bouts and Itoh has never won any of them. They also team together as 121000000 but Itoh thought they should disband. Yamashita talked her out of it because it wouldn’t make a difference to the match. Therefore there’s no need to split the team up.

Yuki Arai is confirmed to be on the show.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~YOUTH FRENZY 2021~”, 14/08/2021
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR
70 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii & Yumehito Imanari defeated Shota & Shinichiro Tominaga when Ishii pinned Tominaga with the Double-Armed Driver (10:40).
2. Gatoh Move Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Yuna Mizumori defeated Chie Koishikawa with the Supergirl (10:22).
3. This Time, A Special Tag Match To Celebrate Katsumura & Haruhi’s Tournament Victory: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Tanomusaku Toba & Miyako Matsumoto when Haruhi submitted Matsumoto with the Excruciating Technique (12:56).
4. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuu Yamagata & Makoto defeated Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE when Yamagata pinned HARUKAZE with the Somato (12:42).

The friendship between Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE is falling apart at the seams. Their teamwork self destructed in the main event when Manase accidentally hit her teammate twice. The first time happened when Yuu Yamagata dodged an Elbow Strike and HARUKAZE got hit behind her. The second time Yamagata purposely pushed Manase into HARUKAZE. Later when Manase called for her partner’s help, HARUKAZE instead hit her with the Fire Spear! Makoto flattened Manase with the W.W.Knee and Yamagata followed up with the Somato to win the match while HARUKAZE stood by.

After the match Yamagata welcomed HARUKAZE to her side and they left with Makoto. Manase was left alone to cry in the ring until Moeka Haruhi came down to comfort her. With Haruhi’s encouragement Manase promised to get revenge on Yamagata and Makoto to bring back her friend HARUKAZE! Backstage, HARUKAZE explained she made her decision to join Yamagata so she can become stronger under her teachings. Yamagata assured her she did not lose today.

The “Excruciating Technique” Haruhi used to submit Miyako Matsumoto is a Cross-Arm Backslide submission hold. Haruhi has not given the hold an official name yet.

4. Ganjo Special Tag Match: Yuna Manase & HARUKAZE Vs Yuu Yamagata & Makoto

A little extra drama added to the main event is the friendship between HARUKAZE and Makoto. They get along outside the ring so could that somehow effect HARUKAZE teaming with Yuna Manase? The last time Yuu Yamagata was here she told HARUKAZE that Manase is holding back her progress.

5. DDT Universal Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki
6. KO-D Openweight Title: Jun Akiyama (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita

A press conference was held today covering some of the important “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” matches. Konosuke Takeshita admitted that losing twice to Jun Akiyama is what helped make him come into this match as a much better wrestler. He wants to win the KO-D Openweight Title and say with pride that “DDT has Takeshita.” Akiyama said that although his opponent is bigger and stronger, he’s going to show him what happens when the feelings in your heart and mind prevail. Akiyama won the previous two matches by submission but will take winning the third match by pinfall if he has to.

Daisuke Sasaki was able to appear on Zoom (goofy background and all) because he is finishing up his quarantine period. His physical absence from the press conference annoyed Yuki Ueno even more because Sasaki still has the stolen DDT Universal Title.

Sanshiro Takagi explained that when students from the DDT Teenage Project turn 20 years old they will become full time members of DDT. Their school education is given priority so will not be wrestling on every show. El Unicorn said he’s been recently inspired by Momiji Nishiya, the 13 year old skateboarder who won gold at the Olympics. Ilusion said he wants to become a big name worldwide. Both of them are just as focused on fighting the big names in their match as they are fighting each other.

Yesterday Atsushi Onita gathered his team together at a parking lot in Chiba to demonstrate the explosions that will be happen for their match. A watermelon was meant to be used as the target. Kuro-chan and his group interrupted the scene and attacked Onita’s team. Super Sasadango Machine smashed the watermelon over Sanshiro Takagi’s head while Akito & Maki Itoh were both taken care of. Kuro-chan & Hikari Noa then grabbed an explosive barbed wire bat and blasted Onita with it. Kuro-chan added insult to injury by pinning Onita while Sasadango counted to three. Kuro-chan promised to retire Onita and take over the rights to explosion death matches!

I will be writing a preview for the show next week.

GANBARE☆PRO “GANBARE☆JOSHI PRO WRESTLING ~THE WORLD CALLS IT LOVE 2021~”, 04/09/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling Offer Match: Keisuke Ishii Vs Shinichiro Tominaga
2. Texas Tornado Street Fight Special Mixed Tag Match: Miss Mongol & Yumehito Imanari Vs Cherry & Shota

There’s more to Ganbare☆Joshi than just the Manase & HARUKAZE drama. Cherry allegedly won a match against Shota in impressive fashion on the last show but no evidence of it happening exists. Whatever happened between them resulted in them now teaming together. Miss Mongol usually has Shota’s number when they fight each other and Yumehito Imanari isn’t going to be distracted by any Pocchari Joshi shenanigans.
