This is the last Tokyo Joshi Pro show for the Akemi Daredasore name. The 30 day period for Hyper Misao to wrestle under that name ends a few days later. She should go back to normal on the show after this but who knows with her. Misao might end up finding another way to change her gimmick again. Shoko Nakajima helped bring Daredasore to life so it’s only fitting for her to say goodbye.

The Homoiro Clover Z reunion gets even bigger with former members KUDO & Hiroshi Fukuda (aka Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi) standing in the team’s corner for the main event.

Whatever contest Hiroshi Yamato and Kazuki Hirata were going to have has been cancelled. Instead Hirata will be teaming with Jun Masaoka to face the invading DAMNATION team of Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo. Yamato now has a match with Keigo Nakamura to see whether or not Nakamura is worthy of becoming a BOY. Akito thinks he should belong to YaroZ.

1. Saki Akai “Okibariyasu” 7 Match Series – 4th Match – Rocky Of Naniwa II Vs Human Torpedo II: Saki Akai Vs Miranda Gordy

The next challenge Saki Akai will face in the Okibariyasu series is Miranda Gordy, the daughter of Terry Gordy! Miranda began wrestling in the American indies last year and is touring Japan in February as part of Tokyo Championship Wrestling. She sent a video to the DDT office explaining that she and Akai share something in common. Akai’s dad was a great boxer and Gordy’s dad was a great wrestler. But Miranda thinks she is a better wrestler than Akai and will crush her in the ring to prove it. Akai understands it is important to be proud of her father’s blood but they will be fighting each other regardless of their second generation status. Akai has been nicknamed “The Rocky Of Naniwa II” because of her family connection but when she finishes the series, she wants to have earned a new nickname for herself.


MAO Vs HARASHIMA Or Tanaka? How Many Right To Challenge Gauntlets? Who Is Showing Up Now?

January 24, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 25/01/2020

DDT “SWEET DREAMS! 2020”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Soma Takao, Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Masahiro Takanashi, Mizuki Watase & Keigo Nakamura

5. Special Single Match To Have Naomichi Marufuji Remember Your Name: Naomichi Marufuji Vs Kazuki Hirata
6. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura (c) Vs Chihiro Hashimoto & Yuki Iino
7. KO-D Openweight Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Masato Tanaka

Even though he won the D-Ou Grand Prix and was undefeated throughout the tournament, Masato Tanaka will not consider himself the strongest wrestler in DDT until he beats HARASHIMA to win the KO-D Openweight Title. He realises that the circumstances around this weekend’s match is very different from the 30 minute draw they had back in December. HARASHIMA claims he fought to win that time but still had fun, perhaps too much of it. This time he wants to fight like the champion he is.

Yuki Iino is fired up to win the KO-D Tag Team Titles on his own. He doesn’t trust Chihiro Hashimoto and she doesn’t trust him. Hashimoto has since made comments calling Iino an idiot that has made him angry.

Naomichi Marufuji still does not remember ever meeting Kazuki Hirata or having drinks with him. Hirata handed over a pair of Hirata GO! glasses to jog his memory but Marufuji broke them instead.

Three Right To Challenge Gauntlets are up for grabs in the Battle Royal. The match will end when all three prizes are claimed. However they don’t seem to be the only Gauntlets around this time.

BASARA “BASARA 118 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE DAY~”, 26/01/2020
Tokyo Oji BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Ryota Nakatsu & Akiyori Takizawa Vs Fuminori Abe & Takato Nakano
2. Takumi Tsukamoto & Yasu Urano Vs Daichi Kazato Vs Masato Kamino
3. Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi Vs Daiki Shimomura
4. Ryuichi Sekine Vs SAGAT
5. Isami Kodaka Vs Tetsuo Usui
6. IRON FIST TAG Match: Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga (c) Vs FUMA & Yusuke Kubo

Over at BASARA the crew is putting on a same day doubleheader. On the afternoon show the IRON FIST TAG Titles are on the line in a rematch between new champions Speed Of Sounds against the former champs IRON PRIEST.

BASARA “BASARA 119 ~THE 4TH FOX PRINCE NIGHT~”, 26/01/2020

2. Takumi Tsukamoto, Banana Senga & Tetsuo Usui Vs Ryuichi Sekine, Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & Daichi Kazato
3. FUMA & Takato Nakano Vs Yusuke Kubo & Fuminori Abe
4. Isami Kodaka Vs Ryota Nakatsu

The evening show looks a bit random other than the main event. That match is between the two wrestlers who failed to win the Union MAX Title from Masahiro Takanashi. If the match set up is good enough for Kota Ibushi and Jay White then it’s good enough for Isami Kodaka and Ryota Nakatsu.

DDT “VALENTINE ITABASHI SERIES 2020”, 01/02/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Match: Yuki Iino Vs Mizuki Watase

4. Beloved Hometown! Itabashi Specialty Special 3 Way Match: HARASHIMA & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Masato Tanaka & Tetsuhiro Kuroda Vs MAO & Makoto Oishi

Apparently there’s three more Gauntlets for a total of six?

We know MAO will be facing the KO-D Champion in February but DDT aren’t taking any chances for one of the preview matches. MAO will face both HARASHIMA and Tanaka in a 3 Way Tag no matter who the KO-D Champion is after this weekend. Tanaka is bringing in his old FMW buddy Tetsuhiro Kuroda to team with him.

Cody Hall and Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

MMA fighter Hayato “Mach” Sakurai returns to DDT after making a few visits to the promotion just over a year ago. Last time he accompanied Tanomusaku Toba to coach him from ringside. This time he will join him inside the ring to wrestle a match.

The surprise opponent for Cherry is Asuka! The original plan was to reveal her on the day of the show but Ganbare☆Wrestling pushed ahead to announce her due to fans not wanting to wait that long.

Daisuke Kiso is making the main event a Secret Captain’s Fall Elimination match. The match will end when a team captain is eliminated. The twist is no one knows who the captains are until the elimination happens.

Kiso only found out recently that HARUKAZE does not own a judo jacket. She might have to borrow one from Gota Ihashi.

Moeka Haruhi had to be renamed Moehiko Harumisawa after a 3 Way Match gone wrong yesterday. More on that below.

Sakazaki & Itoh In EVE, Homoiro Clover Z Reunion

January 15, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2020 WINTER ~WONDERFUL HARMONY~”, 18/01/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Yuki Aino Vs Mahiro Kiryu
2. Akemi Daredasore, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa Vs Shoko Nakajima, Nodoka Tenma & Haruna Neko
3. Suzume Vs Sena Shiori
4. Mirai Maiumi Vs Miu Watanabe
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Maki Itoh Vs Yuna Manase & Raku
6. Miyu Yamashita, Rika Tatsumi & Raku Vs Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Pom Harajuku

This past weekend Yuka Sakazaki and Maki Itoh both wrestled in England for “WRESTLE QUEENDOM 3” hosted by Pro-Wrestling: EVE. Sakazaki fought to a 15 minute draw against Lana Austin. After the match Sakazaki told Austin they can have a rematch for the Princess Of Princess Title if Austin ever comes to Japan. In the other match, Itoh defeated “Session Moth” Martina. She was amazed at how Martina controlled the audience support at first but Itoh got them on her side because she is the cutest in the world. Itoh also thinks it was 100 times more exciting to sing in England than it is to sing in Japan.

Anyway long story short, Sakazaki & Itoh are teaming together for their first match back in Japan since the EVE show.

Itoh has invited Bull Nakano to attend the big Tokyo Joshi Pro show at Tokyo Dome City Hall this November. The two met at a talk event yesterday. Nakano’s advice for Itoh was no matter how good she gets, she needs to develop rivalries with other wrestlers from her era. That is what attracts fans and gets them to keep watching.

BASARA “BASARA 117 ~REBORN~”, 22/01/2020
Shinjuku FACE

0. Exhibition Match: Captain Grace & Kamui Vs Takano Nakato & Masato Kamino

4. Isami Kodaka, Ryuichi Sekine & Minoru Fujita Vs Takumi Tsukamoto, Yasu Urano & Takato Nakano
5. Fuminori Abe & Takuya Nomura Vs Naoki Tanizaki & Akiyori Takizawa
6. IRON FIST TAG Titles: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo (c) Vs Tsutomu Oosugi & Banana Senga
7. Union MAX Title: Masahiro Takanashi (c) Vs Ryota Nakatsu

Unfortunately I’m still struggling to keep up with BASARA because they are still only posting the bare minimum of info on their new website. I’ll keep posting results for now. I’ll have to find a way to dig deeper into this.

Anyway, Masahiro Takanashi is not taking it easy as the Union MAX Champion. He defeated Isami Kodaka in his first defence. Now next on the plate for him is another former MAX champion, Ryota Nakatsu. He also pinned Kodaka recently to claim the title shot.

Tsutomu Oosugi pinning FUMA at the last show means Speed Of Sounds get an IRON FIST TAG Titles match.

BOYZ “(BRAND NEW) BOYZ α -VALENTINE EDITION-”, 11/02/2020
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. BOYZ Ace Showdown: MAO Vs Yuki Ueno
2. Fairy BOYZ: Yasu Urano & Antonio Honda Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Naomi Yoshimura
3. BOYZ-Like Exchange Match: Konosuke Takeshita & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Shuichiro Tominaga & Shota
4. HomoClo Revival: Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Akito Vs HARASHIMA, Keisuke Ishii & Mizuki Watase

Homoiro Clover Z are back! This was an idol unit put together by Danshoku Dieno between 2011 and 2012. There were a few reunions here and there afterward and it was never their decision to break up at the time. They had to because the entire roster was reset for new units to take their place.

Since there currently is not much interaction between the different brands on the main DDT shows, Akito is using the BOYZ brand to make matches involving Ganbare☆Wrestling wrestlers. Shota has been looking forward to wrestle against Konosuke Takeshita ever since he witnessed Takaeshita’s debut match back in 2012.

Akito thinks the YaroZ have their place on BOYZ shows too. They have their female fans believe it or not. Akito knows they can be as graceful as fairies if given the opportunity to.

Kazuki Hirata and Hiroshi Yamato will be on the show.

The card announcement was interrupted by a message from DAMNATION. They will be producing their own show in Shinjuku FACE on 7th April.

The next BOYZ show after this will be on 26th April at Itabashi Green Hall. However the next YaroZ show is also scheduled for the venue on the same day at the same time! An agreement was made for the shows to be held on separate floors. BOYZ gets the bigger room on the 2nd floor. YaroZ gets the smaller room on the 1st floor. They will have to use a low floor ring and can only fill in 124 people in the audience but the YaroZ people think the size is just right for them.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “STAR PLATINUM 2020”, 24/02/2020
Tokyo Seijo Hall

1. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Keisuke Ishii (c) Vs Yumehito Imanari

Yumehito Imanari won a Battle Royal to get this title shot. He is the most motivated he’s ever been as a pro wrestler. So even though he knows he will take a beating from Keisuke Ishii, he still likes his odds of winning.


DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019” Results

May 25, 2019

DDT “GOLDEN DDT THEATER 2019”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall
201 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Kota Umeda defeated Nobuhiro Shimatani with the PK (7:09).
2. 3 Way Match: Toru Owashi defeated Makoto Oishi and Hiroshi Yamato when Owashi pinned Oishi with La Magistral Cradle (8:08).
3. Masahiro Takanashi & Asuka defeated MAO & Mizuki Watase when Takanashi pinned Watase with a Cradle (9:54).
4. Shunma Katsumata Return Battle: Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura defeated Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata when Yoshimura pinned Katsumata with the Shonenba (15:31).
5. Soma Takao defeated Kazuki Hirata with the Egoist Driver (9:58).
6. DDT Extreme Title – Yogi Yogi Death Match: Akito defeated Antonio Honda (c) with the Scorpion Lock (13:02).
*Antonio Honda fails in V1. Akito becomes the 45th DDT Extreme Champion!
7. Yukio Sakaguchi, HARASHIMA & Kazusada Higuchi defeated Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie when Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb (13:06).

DAMNATION used Mad Paulie’s collar and leash to choke Yukio Sakaguchi with. However Sakaguchi was able to render Daisuke Sasaki useless with a Sleeper Hold, hit Paulie with the God’s Right Knee and got rid of Tetsuya Endo with an Apron PK outside the ring. HARASHIMA kept a look out while Kazusada Higuchi pinned Paulie with the Doctor Bomb. Sakaguchi told Endo he wants to kill him right now but he’d rather wait until their match at Matsuyama. Endo feels the same way. He said the KO-D Openweight Title means everything to him because he won it from Sasaki.

The DDT Extreme Title match featured a stipulation that starts off peacefully but descends into mayhem if something goes wrong. Antonio Honda and Akito wrestled each other while bystanders Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi and Konaka = Pale One would meditate and do yoga next to them. The slightest touch to either Hiroshi or Konaka would send them into a rage and result in a sudden attack before they returned to meditating. The provoked attacks would continue until Hiroshi and Konaka touched each other, leading to a fight between themselves. When this happened Honda had enough space in the ring to hit the Diving Fist Drop to Akito. He went for the pin but Hiroshi broke it with the Yoga Ye to Honda! Akito put Honda in the Scorpion Deathlock and made Honda tap to win the Extreme Title. The trainee at ringside, Nakamura, accidentally made contact with Hiroshi and Konaka after the match. He suffered the consequences.

Akito thanked Honda for the match and was ecstatic to become the Extreme Champion again after five years. Asuka congratulated Akito and asked for a title match. She is starving for a championship ever since she lost the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title. Hisaya Imabayashi loved the idea and wants the match to happen at Ota Ward on 15th July. However Akito struggled to accept it and even argued with Imabayashi over the idea. He eventually gave in and will put the belt on the line against Asuka at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019”.

Soma Takao already had Kazuki Hirata beaten with the Gin And Tonic. He decided to add insult to injury by pinning Hirata with his own finisher, the Egoist Driver!

The returning Shunma Katsumata took the fall in Match #4. Konosuke Takaeshita said he’s been annoyed by how much Katsumata’s career had stalled this year because of his injuries. He asked him to do his best to start again from scratch. Katsumata promised to do that and also to do his best for ALL OUT’s upcoming series with the Sendai Girls.

It was announced that Chris Brookes will get a KO-D Title shot at the 21st July Korakuen Hall show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND” Results

May 25, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall
294 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Raku, Mina Shirakawa & Mirai Maiumi defeated Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu when Shirakawa pinned Kiryu with the Implant DDT (9:10).
2. Sakisama & Misao defeated Mizuki & YUMI when Sakisama submitted YUMI with the Versailles Foot Choke (11:12).
3. Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki defeated Marika Kobashi & Yuki Aino by TKO when Yamashita used the Modified Cobra Clutch on Kobashi (12:52).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Himawari Unagi with the Missile Hips (7:52).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miu Watanabe defeated Nodoka Tenma with the Tear Drop (7:56).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Natsumi Maki defeated Hikari Noa with a German Suplex (10:15).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Shoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Northern Lights Suplex (12:05).

Yuki Kamifuku pulled in Daisuke Kiso to prevent Shoko Nakajima from hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. In the middle of this fracas, Nakajima went for a Dropkick but Kiso took the hit instead of Kamifuku. The absence of a referee gave Kamifuku a chance to win but Nakajima was able to recover. Kamifuku had some fight left when she kicked out of the Northern Lights but one more use of the move eliminated her from the Tokyo Princess Cup. Nakajima admitted this turned into a dangerous match and it is becoming more difficult to win the tournament. She wants to win the Princess Cup while holding the TOKYO Princess Title because it hasn’t been done before.

There were hugs and smiles from Pandemic Boo-Boo after their match so Hikari Noa has no hard feelings over losing to Natsumi Maki. Maki hopes that this will become a meaningful match for Noa.

We only had to wait until the second match for the big upset of the tournament. Miu Watanabe overcame the odds to beat Nodoka Tenma! She escaped from the Killswitch and struck Tenma with the Laser Beam Punch. Watanabe then used a spinning version of the Flapjack called the Tear Drop to get the win. Watanabe wanted to go all out today to make up for missing last year’s Princess Cup.

Well so much for that fan vote. Himawari Unagi was the first woman eliminated from the tournament after a loss to Rika Tatsumi. Unagi feels regret over the result not just for her but also her generation of Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestlers. She thinks this class of five women are the most in-sync amongst the roster so she was representing them just as much as herself. For Tatsumi the win was just what she needed for a confidence boost.

Marika Kobashi was given a harsh looking farewell from Tokyo Joshi when Miyu Yamashita defeated her with the Modified Cobra Clutch. But that was the kind of treatment Kobashi wanted for her final match as a high school student. She thanked Yamashita and Reika Saiki for everything they’ve done for her even though her neck was left feeling sore. When her school exams are done she will prepare her body and mind for her return to Tokyo Joshi.

NEO Bishiiki-gun tried to make Mizuki see their way of life during their tag match. When Misao had YUMI held in a rest hold, Sakisama cut off Mizuki by putting her in a ballroom dance pose like she used to do with Azusa Christie. Mizuki said she hated it and later refused Misao’s request to “build a new world together.” Sakisama said backstage that Mizuki would look good in black and white. She promised to take away the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from Mizuki as well as her mind and her heart!

It was announced that the music video for “Upper Kick!” by the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) is approaching 10,000 views on Youtube. The Up Up Girls are asking their fans to watch the video 30 times a day so it can surpass that number.
