1. Yuna Manase defeated Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (5:40).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Yuki Kamifuku and Hinano when Misao pinned Hinano with the HiPami Returns (7:56).
3. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Miu with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (12:36).
4. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Azusa Takigawa & Hikari when Tenma pinned Takigawa with the Killswitch (13:05).
5. Shoko Nakajima & Yuu defeated Maki Ito & Mizuki when Nakajima pinned Ito with a Cradle (12:05).
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Priscilla Kelly with the Crash Rabbit Heat (11:28).
*V6 for Miyu Yamashita.

After their last few matches on this tour, Miyu Yamashita finally has Priscilla Kelly figured out. However this time Kelly did not use any of her mind games like licking her opponent. She doesn’t do that when competing in important matches. Kelly again found herself on the top rope after blocking a Superplex but this time she wasn’t able to do her Osteoporosis finisher. Yamashita dropped Kelly with the Attitude Adjustment and wore her down with various Head Kicks until winning with the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita celebrated her first match in Fukuoka in four years. She could not be happier to return as the defending TOKYO Princess Champion and with Priscilla Kelly as her opponent. She also got to wrestle in front of her mother today. The pressure she had today felt amazing and she hopes to return to Fukuoka every year from now on.

The show began with Maki Ito reuniting with LinQ for a musical performance. She said it’s ironic to see the group she was fired from cheer for her. Although she lost again today she gave words of encouragement to the crowd. You can achieve one goal no matter what it is whether it is doing 30 sit-ups or getting to Tokyo University.

Knowing that many people were seeing Tokyo Joshi Pro for the first time today, Hyper Misao wanted to show how powerful a hero she is. So she encouraged Yuki Kamifuku and Hinano to fight 2-on-1 against her. The pair eventually fell apart and started fighting each other. That allowed Misao to pick her moment and pin Hinano with the HiPami Returns after Kamifuku was knocked out of the ring.

Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
240 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Hikari defeated Raku with the Grounded Cobra Twist (5:24).
2. 3 Way Match: Yuu defeated Yuna Manase and Yuki Kamifuku when Yuu submitted Kamifuku with the Katahajime (9:58).
3. Reika Saiki & Azusa Takigawa defeated Shoko Nakajima & Hyper Misao when Takigawa pinned Misao with the Wedding Elbow (14:42).
4. Miyu Yamashita defeated Hinano with the Attitude Adjustment (8:22).
5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki & Maki Ito defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Miu with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:21).

Yuka Sakazaki said she is looking forward to defending the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles in two weeks time. She will not lose the titles to anybody be they sisters, family, lesbians or whatever. Yuki Aino knows that it is in the ring where she and Nodoka Tenma can best demonstrate their power together. Their future will be stronger when they challenge for the titles in Kitazawa. Before then is Tokyo Joshi Pro’s return to Shibuya DESEO. Mizuki hopes to sing “Setsunairo” with Maki Ito for the first time in a while there.

Hinano started crying when Miyu Yamashita started kicking her. She wouldn’t stop until Yamashita apologised but it was all a trap for Hinano to attack when her guard was down. Hinano got some more offence in but as soon as Yamashita regained control she would go on to win the match. Backstage, Hinano said she felt the difference in her physical fitness from the last time she wrestled Yamashita. She still feels scared about taking Yamashita’s kicks but she’d rather be scared now rather than later.

Hyper Misao & Shoko Nakajima are campaigning against Azusa Takigawa’s planned graduation from Tokyo Joshi. They even set up a protest before their match that Reika Saiki couldn’t resist to join in. Takigawa got angry when they shouted about her having no boyfriend but they continued to protest while the match went on. Misao apparantly had a change of heart and offered to lose the match to Takigawa’s top rope Wedding Elbow. However Misao broke her promise by kicking out of it. Nakajima, Saiki and Takigawa all joined forces by giving Misao the 619, a Dropkick and then the Wedding Elbow to give Takigawa the victory. Both Takigawa and Misao made up after the match with a fist bump.

Yuki Kamifuku brought along the issue of FRIDAY magazine she recently posed for to proudly show off to her opponents. Yuna Manase insulted Kamifuku by asking if her photos were printed in black and white. Yuu had enough of their fighting and got involved to get the match back in track. They asked her who had the better body but Yuu’s only response was “I don’t know”. She then beat the both of them.

*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!

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.

7. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Miyu Yamashita defeated Miu with the Attitude Adjustment (9:43).

The entire Up Up Girls organization turned up for this special crossover event with Tokyo Joshi Pro. The show was made up of matches featuring the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) against four of the best that Tokyo Joshi has to offer. The Up Up Girls idol unit performed songs inbetween the matches and interacted with the Tokyo Joshi roster throughout the day. The Up Up Girls (Fake) crashed the show and tried to get involved too.

The end result for the challenge match series was 4-0 in favour of Tokyo Joshi. It was an emotional day for the Up Up Girls but they did the most that they could with their limited experience. Raku loves the way she fights in the ring and she almost cried when she entered the ring today. Hikari wonders how much she can grow around pro wrestling in the future. She was intimidated by having to wrestle Shoko Nakajima until Nakajima gave her some advice before the match took place. Her goal now is to overtake Nakajima. Hinano had her first ever singles match today. She definitely wants to become a necessary figure in Tokyo Joshi some day. Miu has been working desperately for the past year to answer a question she hears often, “What is Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling)?” She wants the answer to be “Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) is the best!”


Princess Cup Final Fight, Imanari Revolution Approaches Its Destination, Up Up Tokyo Joshi

1. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Rika Tatsumi Vs Raku
2. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Hikari
3. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Hinano
4. Continue To Challenge, FIGHTING GIRLS! Challenge Match: Miyu Yamashita Vs Miu

A random draw held yesterday determined the matches. Miu had wanted a singles match with Miyu Yamashita so she is happy with the draw. A chance to wrestle the TOKYO Princess Champion will make up for her failing to qualify for the Tokyo Princess Cup. Yamashita doesn’t know what to expect from Miu. Her only focus is to defeat whoever is put in front of her. However Yamashita kind of sees Miu in the same position that she herself was in with Meiko Satomura last year. Yamashita obviously isn’t on Satomura’s level but the gap of experience here is kind of similar if on a smaller scale. Hinano says that whenever she fought Yuka Sakazaki in tag matches, she felt the atmosphere in the room change. She thinks Sakazaki is scarily fast and that is her strength. Shoko Nakajima is feeling nostalgic about this show because it reminds her of the early Tokyo Joshi Pro events that featured local idol performances inbetween the matches. She feels like she is just as much going to a music festival than she is going to a wrestling show. Hikari is currently the most experienced of the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) after competing in the Princess Cup. She lost to Sakazaki but she is looking forward to wrestling the other member of the Miraclians one on one. Rika Tatsumi calls Raku the most beautiful looking girl in the Up Up Girls. She has a mysterious face that cannot be read. Tatsumi was also once a member of an idol group but was kicked out a month after their debut CD was launched. She thinks the Up Up Girls are in a better environment today than she was back then.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “TAIYO NO SEASON 2018”, 14/07/2018
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. GanJo Spring No. 1!: HARUKAZE Vs Moeka Haruhi
2. Road To Independent World Jr!? Hitori Shiten Pro Wrestling Vs Silent Arm Cross: Keisuke Ishii & Chikara Vs Ayumu Honda & Kyu Mogami
3. This Is Ganbare☆Wrestling! ~Charisma Vs Revolutionary~: Ken Ohka Vs Yumehito Imanari

It’s been brewing for two months but the Imanari Revolution will collide with the heart and soul of Ganbare☆Wrestling himself in the main event. Yumehito Imanari launched his revolution to push himself up the card and loosen Ken Ohka’s monopoly of the main event spot in the process. It has led to Imanari winning more than usual and closing the distance while Ohka finds himself a little less relevant in his own promotion.

Keisuke Ishii already has a new challenger for the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title even if he doesn’t believe it. Ayumu Honda from K-DOJO came out at the last show to challenge him for a title shot. Ishii ignored the challenge until Honda attacked him. That somehow still didn’t get his message across but the title match will go ahead at some point anyway. Until then Ishii is teaming with Chikara to take on Honda and his fellow K-DOJO pal Kyu Mogami.

7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita defeated Reika Saiki (c) with the Crash Rabbit Heat (14:58).
*Reika Saiki fails in V3. Miyu Yamashita becomes the 5th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

 

Two years ago Miyu Yamashita became the first TOKYO Princess Champion in Korakuen Hall. Today she repeated history by winning the championship for the second time in the same building. She had a back and forth battle with the champion Reika Saiki. Yamashita missed the Crash Rabbit Heat and was in trouble after Saiki hit her with the Shining Wizard. But Yamashita avoided the Jackhammer and stunned Saiki with High Kicks, a Running Knee Strike and a Buzzsaw Kick. Finally Yamashita hit the Crash Rabbit Heat and that was enough to crown her as the new champion. Yamashita praised Saiki afterwards and talked about how she won the title in Korakuen last August. They also teamed together as the Muscle Strikers in a tag tournament. As long as Saiki continues to climb into the ring Yamashita will consider her a tag partner, a friend and her strongest rival.

But Yamashita isn’t finished yet. She won back the Princess Title but doesn’t consider herself a proper champion until she successfully defends it. Veda Scott suddenly entered the ring to demand a title shot but Yamashita doesn’t understand English. Yuki Kamifuku translated Scott’s comments for her. Scott apologised to Yamashita for only being the champion for three days because Scott wants a title match on 7th January in Osaka! Yamashita accepted the challenge because she will take any opportunity to raise the stock of Tokyo Joshi Pro anytime, anywhere!

The Miraclians overcame a tough challenge from Mizuki & Riho to stay as the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Champions. Both Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima hit stereo 619s to the challengers leading to the Magical Girl Splash finish. The champions spoke of how much fun they just had and the win means they now “conquered” Thailand. After they asked if there were any other teams ready to challenge them, NEO Biishiki-gun appeared. The Apricots assumed there was about to be a challenge thrown out but Saki-sama said that wasn’t the case. Saki is not going to lower herself to challenge a team that is below her. Even if the Apricots are the champions Saki still thinks she would degrade herself if she challenged them. Instead she was here to inform them that she will wait for them to challenge her & Azusa Christie instead. No problem. The champions just conquered Thailand. It seems that next on their list is France!

The Super Milk Combination couldn’t beat NEO Biishiki-gun even with the presence of Haruka Nishimoto in their corner to motivate them. Nonoko burst into tears after the match and Nishimoto tried to console her. She said Nonoko shouldn’t cry because she has the strongest breasts! Nonoko cheered up and said she would do her best.

Maki Ito had a lot on her mind going into today’s show. Her new CD was released and according to her it already sells spectacularly. However she complained to Tetsuya Koda because there were no promotional videos made to market it. Koda complained that they don’t have the marketing budget to make one. He calmed Ito down and told her to focus on selling 200 copies first, then she had to go out and fight Danshoku Dino. Ito took a beating from Dino but she had a secret weapon that Dino didn’t expect. The Lip Lock! The move made Dino faint but he had enough energy to kick out at two. Another Lip Lock followed by a Missile Dropkick brought Ito close to winning again but Dino recovered and gave Ito two Brainbusters. Ito kicked out of the pin afterwards but was beaten with the Screw Danshoku Driver afterwards. Dino encouraged Ito to stand up under her own strength after the match. Ito said it hurt to move but the match she just lost is in the past. The Ito that lost in the past is not the same Ito that is here in the moment right now. She yelled that she will not give up and rallied the fans to cheer for her. She then sang/shouted the lyrics to “Ultra Soul” as she left the ring.

Veda Scott offered to give vegetables to Maho Kurone before their match because she is a vegetarian. Kurone quickly slapped the vegetables out of Scott’s hand and chased her around ringside. Scott later avoided the Ouroboros and pinned Kurone with a Back Drop.

Hyper Misao called the other team in the opener a “a group of outrageous villains”. She called her own team “three people with true bonds seeking love.” That seemed questionable when Misao, Rika Tatsumi & Yuki Kamifuku all picked on Nodoka-oneesan during the match. Yuu & Marika Kobashi came to the rescue and Yuu submitted Misao to win.

The Up Up Girls debut match opened the show. Hinano did Elbow Strikes, Raku did Brain Chops and Hikari did Dropkicks. Miu was the strongest of the four and used moves like a Bearhug and a Canadian Backbreaker to win the match for her and Hinano. Miu said in the post-match interview ther her goal is to win a championship. Hinano said if the Up Up Girls idol group can perform in Budokan Hall then so can the Up Up Girls wrestling group! Raku hopes she will make up for the loss at her next match in Osaka. Hikari knows that pro wrestling is a tough world and next time she wants to win. The idol group was in attendance to take a photo with the wrestling group later in the show.
