1. Raku & Miu defeated Hikari & Hinano when Miu submitted Hinano with the Canadian Backbreaker (4:50).
2. Nodoka-oneesan defeated Marika Kobashi with the WAR Special (5:56).
3. Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone defeated Mizuki & Hyper Misao when Tatsumi pinned Misao with the Missile Hips (10:10).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuu & Yuki Kamifuku when Saki-sama submitted Kamifuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:38).
5. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Samara with the Magical Girl Splash (8:24).
6. Syoko Nakajima & Yuna Manase defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito when Manase pinned Ito with the Kakato Drop (15:16).

Yuna Manase felt “amazingly happy” after winning the main event and getting to do the show closing speech for the first time. She credited Syoko Nakajima for keeping her safe throughout the match, which allowed her to work hard. They closed out the show by taking suggestions from the audience for delicious food to eat in Nagoya. They decided on miso cutlet, chicken wings and deep fried shrimp.

Yuka Sakazaki did the Magical Girl Splash twice to beat Samara. Sakazaki didn’t hit the move properly the first time so took the risk to do it again. It paid off.

Today’s show was the first time Saki-sama has ever visited Nagoya. After she and Azusa Christie won their match, Saki-sama told everyone she wanted to buy a Golden Shachihoko statue. Christie promised she would schedule an appointment with the governor of Nagoya at once to do that. When that is done they can then focus their attention to the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show in Shinkiba. Saki said NEO Biishiki-gun will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles against the blue and black pigs that make up the BRAVE☆MATES at that show. Christie corrected Saki by telling her the title match is taking place in Seijo a few weeks later. Some of the fans laughed at Saki’s mistake and that made Christie angry. Christie called them rude and NEO Biishiki-gun left the ring.

Even though Hyper Misao was on the opposite team as Rika Tatsumi, Misao wanted to help Tatsumi with her crush on Mizuki. First, they want to get #好きです辰巳リカ trending on Twitter (I think it means “I Like Rika Tatsumi”) She encouraged Tatsumi to start the match with Mizuki but she was too smitten to do anything until Mizuki and Maho Kurone got the match going. Tatsumi won the match by pinning Misao but she chased after Mizuki when it was over.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, Nodoka-oneesan asked if anybody in the audience was already gifted with chocolate this week. When some people raised their hands, Nodoka told them she loves white chocolate and will be waiting to get some from them.

6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Syoko Nakajima & Yuka Sakazaki (c) when Saki-sama pinned Sakazaki with the Two Step Face Kick (13:51).
*Miracle Apricots fail in V3. NEO Biishiki-gun becomes the 2nd TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!

NEO Biishiki-gun won the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles but that was not enough to satisfy Saki-sama. She attacked Yuka Sakazaki after the match and complained that the title belts are worthless compared to the beauty and strength of NEO Biishiki-gun. When she threw the belts aside, Yuu & Nodoka-oneesan entered the ring to confront her. Saki-sama called them pigs but Nodoka said pigs are stronger than the doll store clerks you find in Harajuku. The BRAVE☆MATES threw out a challenge for the belts and Saki-sama agreed to having the match in Nagoya.

Nonoko’s final match in Tokyo Joshi Pro ends with a win over Maki Ito. Nonoko’s chest guarded her from Ito’s Headbutts until Nonoko was able to hit the Pai Fly Flow for the pin. For her graduation ceremony she received gifts and bouquets from Marika Kobashi, Yuna Manase, Yuu and Rika Tatsumi. Tatsumi also prepared a speech for Nonoko, talking about how close together their debuts were (one month apart) and also how they lived together for a while. Tatsumi calls Nonoko an indispensable part of Tokyo Joshi and the place will be lonelier without her. Tatsumi will support whatever activity Nonoko will move onto next and hopefully in return Nonoko will make her a delicious meal again. Nonoko said she never found a place like Tokyo Joshi that let her celebrate life so much. Last year she read an article in Zexy magazine about a bride talking about how wonderful her wedding was. Today Nonoko feels the same way. There are so many things she learned here and everyone has become family to her, even her rivals. Nonoko received her paper tape and celebrated her graduation when Azusa Christie appeared. Christie handed her one last bouquet and left before the commemorative group photo was taken.

Hyper Misao came up with an idea to help Yuna Manase prepare for her title match against Miyu Yamashita. Misao brought along a homemade cardboard championship and pretended to be Yamashita so Manase could learn how to fight her. The problem was Misao didn’t know how to act like Yamashita and couldn’t do her moves properly. Manase was able to beat her anyway and was rewarded with the cardboard belt.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “LET’S GO! GO! IF YOU GO! WHEN YOU GO! IF YOU GET LOST JUST GO TO THE PRINCE!”, 20/01/2018
Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR
150 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Raku & Hikari defeated Miu & Hinano when Hikari submitted Miu with a Leg Roll Clutch (6:48).
2. Mizuki defeated Hyper Misao with the Cutie Special (7:41).
3. Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Maki Ito defeated Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Yuki Kamifuku when Nodoka pinned Kamifuku with the Backflip (9:14).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Marika Kobashi whn Christie pinned Kobashi with the Christie Agape (14:45).
5. Miyu Yamashita & Syoko Nakajima defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Yamashita pinned Nonoko with the Crash Rabbit Heat (14:33).

Nonoko thanked Miyu Yamashita & Syoko Nakajima for being her opponents one last time today. They were there when Nonoko joined Tokyo Joshi Pro back in 2013. Back then Nonoko only had a vague concept of what pro wrestling is. She thinks she has become a respectable wrestler since then and she has Yamashita & Nakajima to thank for that. Nonoko also has a request for Yamashita. She wants her to defend the TOKYO Princess Title against Yuna Manase! Yamashita agreed to do it because she is self-admittedly a good girl.

Nonoko’s final match will be on 3rd February and she picked Maki Ito to be her last opponent. Nonoko admitted she’s been jealous of Ito ever since she appeared in Tokyo Joshi. Ito complained about her banner falling off the wall at some point during the show and promised it will be fixed in time for their match.

Saki-sama insulted Yuka Sakazaki by calling her a cockatiel after the match. She thought Sakazaki could try the full course but she couldn’t even beat the appetiser today. Azusa Christie calmly told Sakazaki to carefully store the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Title belts for her so she won’t damaged the leather.

Nodoka-oneesan motivated her partners to exercise with her before their match. It seemed to have worked because Nodoka pulled off a rare win as a result.

Hyper Misao tried to play mind games with Mizuki by saying Rika Tatsumi is cuter than her. The plan didn’t work.

The rest of the Up Up Girls have figured out how much of a killer move Miu’s Canadian Backbreaker is. Raku & Hikaru did what they could to stop Miu from doing the move. Hikaru ended up countering the hold ino a Leg Roll Clutch to win the match. This was her first victory after taking the fall in the previous Up Up Girls matches. The group later performed a song in the ring and talked about their wrestling goals. They all want to challenge for a championship except for Hinano. She just wants her Twitter account to be verified.

1. Raku & Miu defeated Hikari & Hinano when Miu submitted Hikari with the Canadian Backbreaker (6:40).
2. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Magical Girl Splash (12:23).
3. Syoko Nakajima defeated Hyper Misao with the Northern Lights Suplex (12:45).
4. Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Mizuki defeated Nonoko, Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Tatsumi pinned Kamifuku with the Dragon Twist Of Fate (13:43).
5. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuu & Marika Kobashi when Christie pinned Kobashi with the Christie Agape (12:32).
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Veda Scott with the Crash Rabbit Heat (12:28).
*V1 for Miyu Yamashita.

Three days after she won the TOKYO Princess Title for the second time, Miyu Yamashita marked her first defence of the reign. Veda Scott targeted Yamashita’s right leg until she could land the Back Drop. But Yamashita kicked out and her leg was in good enough condition to kick her way to victory. Yamashita admitted she put herself in a dangerous position to take the match so soon after her title win but she proved she has enough power to defend the belt in these situations. She is a champion so she must defeat her opponents anytime, anywhere and against anyone.

An odd stipulation was added to the Syoko Nakajima Vs Hyper Misao match. If either girl spoke English during the match they would have to drink a glass of apple cider vinegar. Nakajima quickly fell in a trap when Misao put her in a hold and Nakajima grabbed the ropes and shouted “Break!” After she took a drink she asked in Japanese why did Misao create this rule. When Misao wouldn’t answer, Nakajima grabbed her hair until Misao shouted “Hair!” in English. More English words were said and they drank more glasses of vinegar until the finish of the match.

Yuka Sakazaki rolled up Nodoka-oneesan inside one of the floor mats outside the ring. She then climbed the top ropes and dropped onto Nodoka. Nodoka later did the same to Sakazaki.

The teams were switched around for the second Up Up Girls match but the result was the same as the first time. Miu submitted Hikari with the Canadian Backbreaker.

6. Christmas Special 5 Big Single Match: Syoko Nakajima defeated Mizuki with a Modified Roll Up Facelock (8:51).
7. Christmas Special 5 Big Single Match: Reika Saiki Vs Yuka Sakazaki ended in a Time Limit Draw (10:00).

Five singles matches were determined by a draw in the lead up to this show. In the main event Reika Saiki and Yuka Sakazaki fought to a time limit draw. This is the second time this month that Sakazaki has been in a time limit draw. After the match both of them argued over who was winning before the time ran out. Saiki said it’s her because she is the TOKYO Princess Champion. Sakazaki said it should be her because she is the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champion and that comes with two belts and a friend. Saiki just gets one belt and has to be alone. They both stopped arguing because it is Christmas so they invited the rest of the roster out to celebrate the holiday.

In the other Christmas matches, Syoko Nakajima defeated Mizuki in a preview of their Tag Title match at Korakuen Hall on 3rd January. Yuu defeated Maki Ito, Rika Tatsumi beat Nodoka-oneesan and Miyu Yamashita successfully defended the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title against Marika Kobashi.

When Hyper Misao learned that Azusa Takigawa had been transformed into Azusa Christie by Saki-sama, she made it her mission to turn Azusa back to normal. Misao brought out an issue of Zexy Magazine and tried to remind Azusa of who she used to be. With a cold stare Azusa kicked Misao, grabbed the magazine and threw it away. Azusa & Saki-sama proceeded to beat Misao & Maho Kurone. They used the elevated Codebreaker double team move on Misao to win. That move is now called the Pas de Deux.

Yuki Kamifuku brought out a copy of her brand new gravure DVD that was released the day before this show. However the referee told her to get rid of it because he thought she was going to use it as a foreign object.

Maki Ito’s new CD will be released at the Korakuen Hall show. She is confident it will sell at least 1,000 copies in a day. She is determined to outpass AKB48.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) appeared showing off their wrestling gear in public for the first time. They were also shown what their debut match will be on 3rd January. It is Hinano & Miu Vs Hikari & Raku in a tag team match. Raku said everyone in the group is a rival but they are also her friends so she will fight fair and square. Hikari promised to become stronger in time for the match. Hinano is happy to team with Miu because she thinks they are the two most physically fit girls in the group. Miu promised to do her best.

3. Hyper Misao Return Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Figure Four Leglock (10:29).
4. Saki-sama defeated Azusa Takigawa with the Two Step Face Kick (9:43).

*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,276th champion.
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Nakajima pinned Nonoko with a Diving Senton (17:02).
*V1 for Miracle Apricots.

The combined size advantage of the Super Milk Combination was not enough to beat the Miracle Apricots. They came close when they hit the W Oppai Ye on Syoko Nakajima but Yuka Sakazaki was there to make the save. From there the Apricots took over and wore down the challengers until Sakazaki got rid of Yuna Manase. Nakajima gave Nonoko a DDT and then won the match with a Diving Senton. The Apricots celebrated their first defence of the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles until the Ito Respect Army came down to the ring. Maki Ito said even though she already has a match planned for 4th January she still wants Mizuki to get a tag title match on the same show. Ito claims that there are many members in the Ito Respect Army and one of them will be Mizuki’s partner on 4th January.

Two prizes were on the line in the match between Yuu and Miyu Yamashita. The Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title and, more importantly, a spot in the main event TOKYO Princess Title match at Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Yuu bruised Yamashita’s chests with Chops and threw her around the ring. In return Yamashita kicked back with all that she had. The High Kicks took their toll and soon Yuu was defeated by the Crash Rabbit Heat. Yamashita wins the Iron Man Title and also goes on to face Reika Saiki for the Princess Title! It’s been a year and a half since she last held the Princess Title. She cannot wait to win it back. She also has to defend the Iron Man Title against Kazuki Hirata in DDT on 1st December. It will be the dance battle between Genghis Khan and TOKYO GO!

Saki-sama continues to pick on the weakest girls in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today Azusa Takigawa tried to stand up to her but was beaten with the Two Step Face Kick. Saki said the match was truly inappropriate from beginning to end. But she was willing to show mercy because there is some beauty in Takigawa. She offered Takigawa to join her side. Takigawa refused because she is chasing her dream and Saki-sama’s obsession with beauty does not fit with that goal. Saki didn’t care what Takigawa said, her offer would not be refused. Suddenly Yukio Saint Laurent appeared and he approached Takigawa. She tried to fight him off but Laurent injected a syringe into her neck, knocking her out. He and Saki-sama left the ring with Takigawa being carried over his shoulder. Saki promised that Takigawa will become a fine lady under her supervision. She reckons we will see the new Takigawa at the next Shin-Kiba 1st RING show.

Hyper Misao had her first match in over 10 and a half months, returning from a long absence after getting reconstructive surgery on her right ACL. She reintroduced herself as the hero to protect love and peace in Tokyo Joshi. She asked Rika Tatsumi to team up with her but Tatsumi turned her down. Misao put up a fight when she was put in a Figure Four Leg Lock but eventually gave up when Tatsumi used the move a second time. Misao said afterwards that she will not give up looking for a tag team partner. But until she finds one she will also focus on becoming a stronger singles wrestler.

After the Ito Respect Corps won their match, Ito demanded a Princess Tag Title shot for 4th January. She was interrupted by Sanshiro Takagi. He has another idea that he thinks is more suitable for Ito. On 4th January Maki Ito will face Danshoku Dino one on one! Takagi thinks it is the perfect match to determine how far Ito has advanced since she became a pro wrestler. Ito accepts the match. She thinks she is so cute that fighting Dino will awaken his love for women. She will then use her cuteness to crush Dino! Mizuki expressed disappointment because she wanted to team with Ito at the show. Ito promised to talk it over with her later.

Yuki Kamifuku tried to get over her fears of wrestling a zombie but her inexperience was her downfall. Maho Kurone didn’t have much trouble wrestling her and even got a few bites in too.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) unit introduced themselves to the audience at the start of the show. Hikari said she discovered wrestling when she was in junior high and wants to dedicate everything in her young life to take part in it. Hinano has nine years of training in judo and sambo. She wants to win a championship within one year of her debut. Raku will turn 20 years old on 5th December and is greeting her last days as a teenager with a smile. Miu is trying her best to be both an idol and a pro wrestler.

5. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Syoko Nakajima (c) Vs Nonoko & Yuna Manase
6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Next Challenger & Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Yuu (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita

The No. 1 Contendership for the TOKYO Princess Title will be between Miyu Yamashita and Yuu. If Yuu is still the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion then that belt will be on the line too. Their only previous singles match took place in September 2016 when Yuu beat Yamashita to win the Princess Title. Yamashita has promised to attack, attack, attack and attack to avenge her loss.

The Miracle Apricots are not taking their first challengers lightly. Yuka Sakazaki lost to the Super Milk Combination in a non-title tag match last week. She sees them as a giant gate to climb over. Syoko Nakajima also knows that the challengers’ team name is not a gag, it’s a description of their strength. Nonoko & Yuna Manase want to use their big chests to overpower the champion team’s speed and technical abilities.

Hyper Misao is back in action after an ACL and meniscus surgery took her out of action for over 10 months. Her debut match took place in Shinjuku FACE so her return match in the same venue feels like a re-debut. Rika Tatsumi is her chosen opponent. They went to see the movie “IT” together recently and Tatsumi had to restrain herself from figuring out what Misao’s match strategy will be.

No word yet on if the main event will be for the Indy World Jr. Title. I expect so if Sasaki beats Diego. Shinichiro Tominaga deserves it after his Amateurs Vs Professionals comparison at the last show.

It’s a Toryumon reunion of sorts for Ken Ohka’s 16th Anniversary.
