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.

2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Semi Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase when Katsumura submitted Imanari with a Triangle Choke (11:38).

4a. Rematch: Miss Mongol defeated Shota, Miyako Matsumoto and Itsuki Aoki when Mongol pinned Shota with a Lariat (15:56).
5. Special Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Kouki Iwasaki defeated Shinjiro Otani & Nobuhiro Shimatani when Iwasaki submitted Shimatani with the Texas Clover Hold (23:00).
6. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Final: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE when Haruhi pinned HARUKAZE with the Diving Foot Stomp (18:25).

After all the rumours going around backstage, the reward for winning the Mixed Tag Tournament is not a new championship or prize money. Instead, Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi will get a match on 11th July against an “super super special” tag team that will be revealed tomorrow. Katsumura said he wants THE HALFEE to wait for Shu Sakurai’s return from injury so all three of them can fight for a championship together again. He also said only 13% of fans thought they were going to win the tournament in a poll so the other 83% should buy their T-shirt as an apology. Haruhi said she is still proud to create history as the first Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament winner. She wants to make more history and be seen on equal footing to the men.

As a result of their defeat, Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE will no longer team together. They did this before when they lost the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles with Kouki Iwasaki. HARUKAZE doesn’t want to break up the team because she finally got a tag partner. Ishii told her that today’s regrets will make her stronger and they will meet again some day.

Shinjiro Otani is quickly becoming a wanted man in Ganpro. He has both Shigehiro Irie and Kouki Iwasaki demanding singles matches against him. Irie wants it to be at the Fire Festival which caused Otani to give him the Fire Festival sword pose. When they Irie & Iwasaki left, Otani praised Nobuhiro Shimatani for a good performance. Otani later spoke good things about Ganpro for how exciting the card and the wrestlers were today. He is sure there are some people who are annoyed that he’s there but he is just as much appearing on these shows to improve himself as he is to improve his opponents.

The Hardcore 4 Way Match ended quickly when Miyako Matsumoto attacked everyone with a barbed wire bat until Miss Mongol knocked her down with a Lariat and pinned her. Matsumoto then successfully appealed for the match to restart. The second match was a lot more chaotic. Itsuki Aoki put Shota through a table. Matsumoto was wheeled into a stack of chairs. She was also thrown off the top of a ladder onto Ken Ohka outside the ring. Mongol got the win with the Lariat again but this time it was to Shota for the three count.

The Jacket Match took on a new meaning when Ohka entered the ring wearing a suit and tie. Cherry, who was dressed in her judo outfit got angry and turned the bout into even more of a grudge match. As the match got more heated, both Ohka and Cherry removed their jackets to reveal they were wearing tanktops underneath. Cherry then used her blue belt to choke Ohka and hang him over the ropes. The bell rang but it was then announced that Cherry was disqualified. Ohka asked if Cherry was angry because they lost in the 1st Round of the Mixed Tag Tournament. He explained that if Katsumura & Haruhi go on to win the tournament then that means Ohka & Cherry are 2nd place by default (I guess the logic is from losing to the eventual champions). Cherry believed him and agreed to support Katsumura & Haruhi.

Yumehito Imanari isn’t letting today’s semi-final loss get him down. His MMA namesake Masakazu Imanari also lost today at the RIZIN show. He believes both of them are making “Imanari” the new trend in mixed martial arts!

It looks like The Weekend Lovers are hitting a rough patch. Shinichiro Tominaga told Asuka that when the weekend is over you should look forward to the next weekend. Asuka glared at him and left without saying a word.

Yuna Manase stormed the ring after the match angry at the fact that there is not another Ganbare☆Joshi show until August. She begged Ohka to let her put together a Ganjo show next month. He promised her she can do it.

1. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase defeated Shota & Miss Mongol when Imanari pinned Shota with an Aerial Body Drop (10:31).
2. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE defeated Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto when Ishii pinned Matsumoto with the Hidoiwaza (10:00).

4. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga defeated Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki when Asuka pinned Aoki with the Safflower Robe (13:39).
5. 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament – Round 1: Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi defeated Ken Ohka & Cherry when Katsumura submitted Ohka with the Ninja Choke (16:36).

The 1st Ganpro Mixed Tag Tournament is finally under way. Every match in the opening round had a 30 minute time limit and any time limit draw would be decided with 1 Count Sudden Death rules. Most of the teams entering the tournament has their own team name to add to the fun. Also there were rumours spreading in the locker room during the show that a Mixed Tag Team Championship might be created and rewarded to the tournament winners.

In the main event Harukatsu Shoot (Shuichiro Katsumura & Moeka Haruhi) defeated Ken-chan Cherry-chan (Ken Ohka & Cherry). Katsumura blocked the Fire Spear with the Ninja Choke and held onto the move even when Ohka turned it into the Vertical Drop Brainbuster. Ohka couldn’t shake him off and had to give up. Cherry blamed Ohka for the lost and kept telling him he shouldn’t have tapped out no matter how bad his neck was getting twisted. Haruhi said her team will go on to win the tournament. They will also be defending the GWC 6-Man Tag Team Titles tomorrow outside of Ganbare☆Pro.

The Weekend Lovers of Asuka & Shinichiro Tominaga advance after beating Team Frenzy (Kouki Iwasaki & Itsuki Aoki). The teamwork shown by Weekend Lovers was the deciding factor. They used a Double Super Kick to get rid of Iwasaki then doubleteamed Aoki until the finish. Iwasaki asked Aoki if they should practice under Ikuto Hidaka to get better. Aoki suggested bringing in Munenori Sawa instead. Asuka isn’t sure if the rumours of a new championship are true but if it is then she wants to be the first champion.

The non-tournament match had Shinjiro Otani beat Shu Sakurai as part of Sakurai’s trial series. It was Yumehito Imanari’s idea to put the match together because he wants Otani to wrestle in Ganpro more often. Imanari thinks there were some NOAH fans who came to the show today because of “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”. He is happy to see Ganpro grow but understands there is a limit due to its size which is why he called upon Otani to help them out. The heat of Ohka and the heat of Otani combined will create a hot pot of pro wrestling!

Back to the tournament. Harukaze Kogyo (Keisuke Ishii & HARUKAZE) eliminated Kinniku Kurukuru Shojo Tai (Shigehiro Irie & Miyako Matsumoto) in an even 10 minutes. Ishii pinned Matsumoto with his modified version of the Emerald Flowsion. Irie shook his opponents’ hands after the match but ignored Matsumoto and left her alone in the ring. Backstage Irie threw in his support for a Mixed Tag Team Championship to be created. He’d fight for one with a different tag partner though. Meanwhile Ishii told HARUKAZE that he wants them to fight like they are going to split up if they lose, just like how it happened with DREAMS HARU TRUE. However HARUKAZE said she is fighting with the goal of reuniting DREAMS HARU TRUE.

Last but not least, Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun (Yumehito Imanari & Yuna Manase) defeated the team known as Yasashiku Naritai (Shota & Miss Mongol). The power of FMW was summoned when Shota & Miss Mongol did a United Thunder Fire Power Bomb to Imanari. But Imanari blocked Shota’s Frog Splash with his knees and pinned him with a Lou Thesz Press.

The semi-finals on 27th June are Harukatsu Shoot Vs Gyaku Funka Murasaki En-gun and Weekend Lovers Vs Harukaze Kogyo. The final is held on the same day.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 04/01/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

Sanshiro Takagi noticed that the 4th January is becoming an important date on the calendar for joshi wrestling. Tokyo Joshi Pro has established an annual Korakuen Hall show on that date, Diana will be running that date for a second year in a row and Stardom is getting in on the action too. Takagi wants to make Gake no Fuchi Joshi Pro number one so he went ahead and booked Itabashi Green Hall on that date in 2020 without telling Matsumoto! However since this company is independent from DDT that means Gake no Fuchi Joshi is now 30,920 yen in debt. The show is called “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020” because this is an entertainment war and they are competing against “Cinderella”!
