The big news coming regarding Tokyo Joshi Pro this week is their entry into the 2018 Chikara King Of Trios! The three longest serving women on the roster Miyu Yamashita, Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima are joining forces to enter the illustrious trios tournament being held in Easton, Pennsylvania on Labor Day weekend. Chikara are naming them the Tokyo Joshi Freedom Fighters to fit in with the Star Wars theme being used this year. This will be the American debuts for all three girls.

The DDT family have a history competing in Chikara’s big tag team tournaments over the years. KUDO, MIKAMI, MIYAWAKI and Yoshiaki Yago (the latter two represented K-DOJO but they were also regulars in DDT at the time) were part of the 2006 Tag World Grand Prix (which was how I discovered DDT in the first place). DDT have also sent teams to the 2007, 2008 and 2009 editions of King Of Trios with the likes of KUDO, Danshoku Dieno, Kota Ibushi and Michael Nakazawa involved among others.

Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Soma Takao Vs Daisuke Sasaki
2. KO-D Openweight Title: Shigehiro Irie (c) Vs Kazusada Higuchi

Kazusada Higuchi gets the KO-D Openweight Title match after winning the Right To Challenge Rumble earlier in the week.

Daisuke Sasaki has decided on the stipulation for the HARASHIMA Vs Soma Takao match. He wants to make it easier for DAMNATION to get the DDT Extreme Title so he is putting himself into the bout to make it a 3 Way Match! All of DAMNATION have promised to be sportsmanlike for the match. Sasaki and Takao will not cheat. Tetsuya Endo and Mad Paulie will not interfere. Whether or not Sasaki is still injured entirely depends on if somebody wants to beat him up or not.

The Asylum Arena

King of Trios Semi-Final: Icarus, Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano defeated Great Sasuke, Jinsei Shinzaki & Dick Togo when Icarus pinned Sasuke with a Small Package (16:13).

Current KO-D Openweight Champion Dick Togo was in America during the weekend for one of the biggest events on the indy wrestling calander, the Chikara King Of Trios tournament. Togo travelled to Philadelphia with fellow Japanese stars The Great Sasuke & Jinsei Shinzaki to enter the tournament and represent Michinoku Pro. They made it to the semi-finals, beating two highly hyped teams along the way. On Night 1 Team M-Pro defeated Team Minnesota in the main event, which marked Sean Waltman returning to his roots and becoming the 1-2-3 Kid once again. Togo claimed the pinfall over Darin Corbin to send his team through to Night 2. There, Team M-Pro went over Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw & Manami Toyota. Reports have it that Togo had no problem beating up joshi legend Toyota when they were in the ring together. But just when it looked like the tournament was there for the taking, Team M-Pro were defeated by Chikara’s most hated Rudos, Team F.I.S.T. DVDs of the event will be available from Smart Mark Video very soon.
