2. Haruna Neko Debut Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Haruna Neko with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Raku and Mina Shirakawa when Manase pinned Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (11:20).
4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita & Nodoka Tenma defeated Maki Ito (c) & Hyper Misao when Yamashita submitted Ito with a Crab Hold (13:24).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,333rd champion.
5. Yuu defeated Yuki Aino with the Katahajime (8:28).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Hikari & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Hikari with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:34).
*V2 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The Up Up Girls duo put up a good fight with even Miu doing a Double Body Slam to Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki but they just couldn’t beat the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Late in the match Hikari kept Sakazaki in her clutches with the Cobra Twist but Mizuki broke the hold. Sakazaki dropped Hikari with the Complete Shot, Mizuki followed up with a Diving Foot Stop and Sakazaki got the pin with the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The champions told Hikari & Miu that they respect them from the bottom of their hearts.

Shoko Nakajima then entered the ring. She congratulated the Magical Sugar Rabbits and called them the best team in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She wants to challenge them for the tag titles at Korakuen Hall on 4th Janaury but knows that Sakazaki is her best partner when they team up as Miraclians. She needs to team with somebody beyond Sakazaki and boy did she find someone. It’s Riho! The Rabbits accepted the challenge. It kind of complicates the relationships between all four women but they all think it is worth it to create the best match possible.

Yuu asked Nodoka Tenma to be her final opponent in Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. The two made their debuts on the same day and have wrestled each other more times than any other person in the company. Tenma accepted but told Yuu she will not lose to her again. Tenma will finally beat Yuu on the day Yuu leaves Tokyo Joshi!

Maki Ito suffered a major blow in the build up to 4/1 by losing the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Miyu Yamashita! The two faced off in a tag match with Nodoka Tenma and Hyper Misao also involved. Ito kicked out of a Right High Kick at one but was beaten down by Yamashita with Buzzsaw Kicks and a Cobra Clutch. Yamashita then locked in a Crab Hold to make Ito submit. Yamashita poured salt on the wounds by taunting Ito with both the Iron Man Title and the TOKYO Princess Title before leaving the ring. Yamashita achieved her goal for today. She thinks their Korakuen match will be more interesting if Ito has to chase after her in the build up. Ito can’t do that if she already has a championship. Well, problem solved.

Haruna Neko had her debut match against Shoko Nakajima. It started off playful as both girls had fun with each other’s tails. Haruna also used a test of strength to make fun of Nakajima’s height by lifting her hand above Nakajima’s reach. Nakajima rolled Haruna into the Unmanned Local Train Hold from a La Magistral to make the rookie submit. For now Haruna hopes to learn more moves that she can use in her next matches.

The two remaining trainees waiting to debut learned who they will be facing in their first matches. Kyou takes on Yuka Sakazaki on 24th November and Yumi will face Saki Akai on 1st December.

What a day it was for Maki Ito! Earlier in the show she lost her Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Shoko Nakajima after their tag match. However when they faced off again the the main event Rumble, Ito countered the Northern Lights Suplex into a Cradle to eliminate Nakajima and regain the title. Ito then pinned Yuki Kamifuku with the Flying Big Head to win the match and earn the TOKYO Princess Title shot on 4th January! Ito and Miyu Yamashita stood opposite from each other in the ring after the main event. Yamashita is excited to finally defend the title against Ito. However, Ito immediately set the mood by saying the match isn’t going to be for fun. Yamashita’s time is over, the next era of Tokyo Joshi Pro belongs to Ito!

Yuu told the fans about her plan to leave Tokyo Joshi and become a freelancer. She apologised for delaying the news because she didn’t want to overshadow Azusa Takigawa’s graduation last month. Yuu thinks she made a positive decision and she thanks everyone for supporting her.

Hikari stopped the Magical Sugar Rabbits from leaving the ring after Match #4. She told them that while the up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) have only been wrestling for less than a year, they’ve been rapidly progressing. Hikari wants to raise the unit’s position on the roster before the new set of trainees debut so she and Miu asked for a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles shot. The champions weren’t sure about the challengers but they accepted the request. The title match takes place on 17th November. Later in the Rumble, Hikari & Miu sent a message to Sakazaki & Mizuki by eliminating the both of them from the match.

Mina Shirakawa wanted to win her first match in Tokyo Joshi so she could immediately make an impact. Instead she quickly found out how much of a struggle it was just to avoid getting pinned. Shoko Nakajima pinned her with the Northern Lights Suplex to start Shirakawa’s run with a loss. Nakajima then snuck in a School Boy on Maki Ito on the entrance ramp to win the Iron Man Title.

Hyper Misao doesn’t understand why there are two girls named Yuki on the Tokyo Joshi roster. She proposed the creation of the YUKI Of YUKI Championship to distinguish the two. Misao also wanted the loser of the 3 Way Match be renamed either Hyper Aino or Hyper Kamifuku depending on who got pinned. Yuki Kamifuku gave Yuki Aino the Fame Asser but Misao got in and pinned Kamifuku with a rope assisted School Boy. Her stipulations didn’t stand afterwards.

Rika Tatsumi gave a live performance of her entrance song after intermission.

Veda Scott will be returning to Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. She will be wrestling on Tokyo Joshi shows up until 13th January.

*The Magical Sugar Rabbits become the 4th TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Yuu with the Crash Rabbit Heat (17:09).
*V5 for Miyu Yamashita.

No amount of chops can stop Miyu Yamashita! At first Yuu had an answer for Yamashita by blocking the Crash Rabbit Heat, hitting plenty of chops at her opponent’s chest and tossing the champion over with a Judo Throw. But Yamashita escaped from the Last Ride and wore down Yuu with many different kicks. Yuu blocked a Buzzsaw Kick but Yamashita tricked her with a feint so she could hit a Backspin Kick right on the button. From there Yamashita was able to hit the Crash Rabbit Heat to earn a 5th successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title.

The result was something Yamashita wanted to achieve for a long time. When she was the first Princess Champion, she lost the belt to Yuu in Korakuen Hall. That stuck with her until today when she was able to avenge the loss in the same building. Yamashita said she will continue to raise Tokyo Joshi Pro and will defend the title against anyone who challenges her. Priscilla Kelly came out and with Yuki Kamifuku translating for her to mixed results, congratulated the champion for a great match and challenged her to a title match. Yamashita accepted and said she wants the match on 14th October in Fukuoka, her hometown. They shook hands until Kelly licked Yamashita up the arm and left the ring.

An emotional end to the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match saw Mizuki pin Maki Ito but not before Ito put everything into trying to win and collapsing in the process. Ito even did her own Diving Foot Stomp to her now possibly former Ito Respect Army member. Things look bleak for the Magical Sugar Rabbits when Ito & Reika Saiki put them both in Crab Holds in the centre of the ring. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki persevered be grabbing each other by the hand and crawling together towards the ropes. Ito missed a Diving Big Head which allowed Sakazaki to hit the Magical Girl Splash and Mizuki to follow it up with her Diving Foot Stomp. Ito eventually got up looking to trade blows with Mizuki but she collapsed from exhaustion. She was still able to kick out of a pin but she was done when she ran into the Cutie Special. After the match Ito had a staredown with Mizuki and left the ring so Mizuki could celebrate her first championship win in Tokyo Joshi with Sakazaki.

Riho bested Shoko Nakajima in the battle between the 619s. Nakajima got a nearfall with the Northern Lights Suplex but missed the Diving Senton. Riho capitalised by hitting the Somato to grab the victory.

Azusa Takigawa’s final match at Korakuen Hall was also Saki Akai’s first Tokyo Joshi match as herself in the same venue. Takigawa tried to motivate herself when she was in a troubled spot by telling everyone she cannot lose if she wants to get signed by Akai’s agency. She gave Akai the Christie Agape and pinned her Azusa Christie style but only got a two count. Akai recovered and hit the Rookie Award for the victory. She praised Takigawa for putting up a good fight. In a backstage interview Akai was told that she resembles a certain French girl who wrestled in Tokyo Joshi recently. Akai isn’t interested in her although she’s been told they look alike.

Hyper Misao’s crafty plan for her match against Priscilla Kelly was to bring in Shota to falsely translate her welcome message for Kelly. Misao told the audience that Kelly does not understand Japanese so she will tell them about her plan. Shota told Kelly in English that Misao wanted a clean fight. Misao also said she expects Kelly will lick her face so she rubbed wasabi on her mask before the match. Kelly briefly fainted when she licked the mask but she recovered in time to continue fighting. Misao took out a tube of wasabi paste but Kelly grabbed it off her and squeezed out the wasabi into Misao’s mouth while she was in a Dragon Sleeper. Priscilla won the match with a Cross Arm Neckbreaker Drop from the turnbuckles.

A new name, a new look, a new song and a new finishing move for Nodoka Tenma. She now uses the Killswitch to win her matches. She described today as the beginning of her second season. Chapter one was Nodoka-oneesan, Chapter two is Nodoka Tenma. She is certain both will be remembered as masterpieces!

Yukinori Matsui officiated an Up Up Girls match for the first time so he was confused by their antics like when Raku did the Good Night Express sit down on Miu. The end came with Miu giving Raku a Canadian Backbreaker Drop while Hikari hit a Missile Dropkick to Hinano. Hikari then made Hinano submit to a grounded Cobra Twist. This was the Up Up Girls’ first match in Korakuen since their debut back in January. Hikari took the losing fall in that match so she got to experience the opposite side in the same place today!


Azusa Takigawa To Graduate, Sakisama Leaving For Paris

More sad news coming out of Tokyo Joshi Pro in the lead-up to their next Korakuen Hall show. Azusa Takigawa has announced she will graduate from Tokyo Joshi later this year with her final match taking place on 27th October. This had been planned for around a year with Takigawa consulting with management over the decision. Talks went away when Takigawa was brainwashed by NEO Biishiki-gun and transformed into Azusa Christie. But with her persona back to normal and her memories returned, she is sticking with her plan to graduate this year. For her final appearance in Korakuen Hall, Takigawa wanted to fight Saki Akai. When Takigawa visited Tetsuya Koda in late 2014 to join Tokyo Joshi it happened around the same time when Akai won the Best Rookie category in the Tokyo Sports Awards. Takigawa was worried about entering wrestling when she was given the article about Akai winning the award. What Takigawa saw was a beautiful person working so hard on pro wrestling and she admired Akai ever since. Akai has spent all this time working for DDT instead of Tokyo Joshi so Takigawa never got the chance to wrestle her until now. Since Akai has a modelling contract with Oscar Promotion, Takigawa hopes that if she wins the match she can use Akai’s connection to get signed to the agency as a caster or reporter. She’s been working hard for the last three years so she believes she has the power to make her dream come true! While Akai has been absent from Tokyo Joshi for a long time, she’s still been paying attention to the brand and has watched Takigawa grow. She thinks Takigawa is showing great courage to graduate at this time.

That isn’t the only absence in the roster coming up. Sakisama next gave everyone the news that she will be returning to Paris after the 18th August show and will no longer be wrestling for Tokyo Joshi, for a while at least. Sakisama was already planning to leave with the rest of NEO Biishiki-gun earlier this month but she decided to stay behind for a little bit for a personal reason. She has an eye out for her upcoming opponent Hikari. She called her the “Blue Fruit” of the Up Up Girls and she wants to squeeze all the juice out of her before she leaves for Paris. Sakisama said it was inspiring to see Azusa Christie wrestle against her at the Beer Garden show. Before Christie was too dependent on her like a child but Sakisama got to see her change as they fought each other. Plus it was even a little fun, Sakisama admits.

The two teams in the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match have signed the contract to make it official. Mizuki said she has twice tried to win the belts with Maki Ito for Maki Ito. This time she has the chance to win it for herself so she doesn’t want to miss that opportunity. Yuka Sakazaki wants revenge on Reika Saiki for losing the TOKYO Princess Title to her last year. Saiki has come around on the idea of teaming with Ito for the match. She thinks having Ito as her partner raises her chances of regaining the titles she never lost. Ito describes her feelings about Mizuki joining another team being like finding out a boyfriend has found another woman. However she can use this disappointment as motivation to win the championships. Even if she fails it will be valuable experience.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GO AHEAD, HOT GUYS IN ITABASHI!”, 12/08/2018
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
219 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Mizuki defeated Miu with a Facelock (6:58).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Hinano with the Hypami Returns (6:51).
3. Nodoka-oneesan & Yuki Aino defeated Shoko Nakajima & Raku when Nodoka pinned Raku with the Backflip (10:47).
4. Sakisama defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (0:30).
4a. Rematch: Sakisama defeated Yuki Kamifuku with a Half Crab Hold (5:29).
5. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Osaekomi Backslide (9:02).
6. Yuu & Yuna Manase defeated Miyu Yamashita & Hikari when Yuu submitted Hikari with the Katahajime (13:08).

Yuu was ruthless in the main event! She targeted Miyu Yamashita with the Katahajime even though Yamashita was not the legal wrestler at that point in the match. That was all part of Yuu’s plan because that meant she didn’t have to let go when Yamashita grabbed onto the ropes! When Yuu was finished with Yamashita, she then put Hikari in the Katahajime to make her submit. Yuu then told Yamashita she is looking forward to their TOKYO Princess Title match on 25th August. Yuna Manase doesn’t have a match made for the show yet but she is looking forward to finding out what it will be.

Azusa Takigawa is feeling like herself again and said she felt like she’s been in a deep sleep for the last nine months. She struggled a little bit with dizziness as she wrestled Yuka Sakazaki but eventually got back into the swing of things. Although she is no longer Azusa Christie, Takigawa still attempted the Christie Agape finisher but it was countered into the Osaekomi Backslide to win the match for Sakazaki.

Sakisama was able to beat Yuki Kamifuku so quickly because Kamifuku had the nerve to grab a piece of Sakisama’s costume when the match started. Kamifuku pleaded for a rematch or else she would be fired for her poor performance. She did a little better in the restart but Sakisama made her give up again to make it two wins in a row.

Since today was the last time Nodoka-oneesan would be using her gimmick in the Kanto region she wanted Sanshiro Takagi and Tetsuya Koda to join in the Ping Pong Pang Exercise. Koda agreed to do it when Nodoka said it would impress his favourite idol Marika Makino.

Hyper Misao bought five copies of Young Jump magazine so she could vote for Hinano in an idol contest the magazine is doing. Hinano later drank water and imitated a Drunken Fist fighting style.
