If both of them win then that means all five wrestlers finish in first place tied at 4 points each!

The last day of Jacket Matches were a mixed bag for Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi. He won one and lost one, leaving him stuck at #8 in the rankings. His latest opponent Shiori Asahi is currently ranked #15.

DDT is collaborating with “Record Of Ragnarok” for a special match. The series is about Humanity fighting for its very survival in a deadly fighting tournament against Gods. It has a manga, a Netflix produced anime and will soon launch a live action stage show.

Yuki Aino bounced back from her clean loss to Miyu Yamashita by pinning Hikari Noa in a tag match. With her recent record against champions, Aino has enough claim to challenge for the International Princess Title. Noa isn’t afraid to take the match to dangerous levels in order to keep the belt over her shoulder.

The complete card for “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” will be revealed tomorrow.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~” Results

September 15, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI 2021 AUTUMN ~KACHO GETSURO~”, 15/09/2021
Shinjuku FACE
202 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuka Sakazaki, Suzume & Haruna Neko defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo when Sakazaki pinned Endo with the Magical Merry-Go-Round (9:53).
2. Hyper Misao defeated Kaya Toribami with the I Am A Hero (7:23).
3. Yuki Aino & Raku defeated Hikari Noa & Nao Kakuta when Aino pinned Noa with the UBV (Infinite Love And Flame) (10:01).
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Mizuki & Pom Harajuku when Sakisama submitted Harajuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:33).
5. Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai Vs Maki Itoh, Shoko Nakajima & Moka Miyamoto ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).

Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh found themselves on equal footing for most of the main event. While Miu Watanabe, Yuki Arai, Shoko Nakajima and Moka Miyamoto all had their parts to play, the match came down to Yamashita and Itoh in the final moments. Itoh countered the Crash Rabbit Heat into a Crab Hold. Yamashita reached the ropes but her Skull Kick attempt missed and Itoh put her in the Itoh Deluxe. Time ran out before we could find out if the move would make Yamashita give up. Neither woman had much to say to each other after the match.

The presence of Yuka Sakazaki at ringside during Match #4 kept bothering Sakisama. Sakazaki was only there to do ringside duties but that was enough for Sakisama to glare at her and lose focus on the match. Meanwhile Mei Saint-Michel got on Mizuki’s bad side by playing with parts of her ring costume. NEO Biishiki-gun won anyway and confronted The Magical Sugar Rabbits in the ring. Sakisama offered Mizuki to join her side so she could become more graceful, pretty and beautiful. Mizuki yelled “No!” The only thing about NEO Biishiki-gun she finds attractive are the Princess Tag Team Titles. MagiRabi want to take those belts and make the world a more peaceful place. Saint-Michel called them selfish and won’t ever forgive them for threatening to take the titles away. Sakisama accepted MagiRabi’s challenge and wants the title match to happen at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”!

Never underestimate Yuki Aino! She pinned another champion in a tag match today, this time Hikari Noa. She told Noa that even though she lost to Yamashita recently, her fire never disappeared. Instead it burns even more! Aino then challenged Noa for the International Princess Title. Noa understands why Aino wants the title but it belongs to her. She suggested they have the match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II”. Noa promised to blow up Aino so she can retain her cute belt.

Hyper Misao gifted Kaya Toribami her own superhero cloak to wear while they wrestled each other. The real reason was so Misao had something to pull and choke her with. Toribami caught on and got rid of the cloak. She thought it still belonged to her after the match but Misao walked off with it.

Yuka Sakazaki told the Kobe fans that Mizuki has always been a big help to her and they closed out the show together.

August 15, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AMEBA PRESENTS 8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP FINAL”, 15/08/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
567 Fans

1. Miyu Yamashita defeated Moka Miyamoto with the Attitude Adjustment (6:27).
2. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Hyper Misao & Kaya Toribami when Aino pinned Toribami with the Venus DDT (12:22).

4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Hikari Noa & Arisu Endo when Saint-Michel submitted Endo with the Saint-Michel (11:02).
5. Yuka Sakazaki, Mizuki, Nao Kakuta & Pom Harajuku defeated Aja Kong, Rika Tatsumi, Marika Kobashi & Raku when Mizuki pinned Raku with the Cutie Special (15:39).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Final: Maki Itoh defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Itoh Deluxe (23:21).

Maki Itoh lived up to her promise to prove happy endings can exist! She went off to a slow start against Shoko Nakajima but took things up a level with a Draping DDT on the ring apron. Nakajima took a beating outside the ring but got the higher ground and hit a Topé Suicida onto Itoh into the security fence. The two of them scrambled to lock in their signature submission holds back in the ring. Nakajima got the upper hand but the damage to her waist prevented her from holding the bridge when she pulled off the Northern Lights Suplex, just like what happened to Mizuki yesterday. Itoh dodged the Diving Senton and hit a Jumping DDT to even the odds again. Nakajima did the Northern Lights Suplex again but even with the bridge this time Itoh was able to kick out. She stuck out her middle finger and blocked the 619. Itoh held on and dragged Nakajima into the centre of the ring to apply the Itoh Deluxe. Nakajima had no choice but to give up, resulting in Itoh winning the Tokyo Princess Cup!

Itoh held onto her injured face until she was given the trophy, which she hugged. She told everyone this has been a long time coming. It may seem like she’s successful at everything but she’s been through a lot. She got fired as an idol, got a facelift that didn’t change anything, built up a lot of debt and even had her face broken during the tournament. This may not have been a happy ending for Nakajima or Mizuki but Itoh wants them to know there is no such thing as a bad ending. For them it’s only the middle of their stories that will head towards their own happy endings!

Itoh then invited Miyu Yamashita into the ring. She originally didn’t like her but when they wrestled each other here in Korakuen Hall on 4th January, it changed her pro wrestling life. Now Itoh is crazy about Yamashita and is glad to have met her! Yamashita congratulated Itoh and then challenged her to a Princess Of Princess Title match at “WRESTLE PRINCESS II” on 9th October! She only had one thing to ask Itoh. Is she ready to fight for the championship? Yamashita is because they team together as 121000000 and also had many singles matches against each other. She is also the best in the world to ever be Princess Champion. Itoh said she now has her happy ending and is ready to start the next chapter of Itoh Vs Yamashita at Ota Ward Gymnasium!

For the first time since their AEW debuts, Yuka Sakazaki and Aja Kong got to wrestle each other again. Kong was put off by the antics of the opposing team but even she couldn’t contend with Pom Harajuku’s Sneak Kicks. Kong finally got her hands on her but the rest of the team made her join in the Good Night Express. Rika Tatsumi then tried to Body Slam Kong onto Harajuku but couldn’t lift her so Kong slammed her instead. The Magical Sugar Rabbits put a stop to Kong with Toy Story (the Double Diving Cross Bodies off the same turnbuckles). Marika Kobashi got involved until Nao Kakuta put her down with a DDT, Tatsumi hit Kakuta with the Hip Attack and then gave Harajuku the Twist Of Fate. Mizuki got Tatsumi with a Missile Dropkick but then Kong came back and held Mizuki in place for Raku’s Double Brain Chop. Mizuki kicked out and avoided the Doctor Yellow. She then caught Raku in the Cutie Special to nab the three count. Everyone on the winning team apologized to Harajuku for not saving her from getting squashed by Kong. Meanwhile Kong praised her team for having good teamwork. Even 35 years into her career she is learning new things and enjoying new places like Tokyo Joshi Pro.

NEO Bishiiki-gun spent their time on the show bullying Hikari Noa & Arisu Endo. It wasn’t a fair fight either because they used distractions to attack Noa with Sakisama’s rose and Mei Saint-Michel’s tray. Noa fought back and was able to get the tag to Endo but Sakisama still drilled her with a Big Boot. NEO Bishiiki-gun continued strong and got rid of Noa with the Tarte Tatin before Saint-Michel submitted Endo with her self-named submission hold.

The first trios match of the show saw Miu Watanabe give Haruna Neko the Giant Swing. Mahiro Kiryu lifted Suzume up for a Spinebuster but held her so Yuki Kamifuku could hit a Big Boot before the drop. Mirai Maiumi got rid of them with a Double Lariat so Watanabe could pin Neko with the Tear Drop.

Hyper Misao wanted Kaya Toribami to watch and learn how to cheat in matches and get away with it. The rookie didn’t quite get what to do. When Misao told her to use the cold spray, Toribami thought she meant to spray herself for recovery reasons rather than spray the opponent to blind them. The Bakuretsu Sisters got past their opponents. Nodoka Tenma rendered Misao useless with a Back Flip and Yuki Aino pinned Toribami with the Venus DDT.

Yamashita’s solo work today was dealing with Moka Miyamoto in the opener. The rookie avoided the Attitude Adjustment, struck Yamashita in the stomach with a Straight Fist Thrust and applied the Rashomon hold. Yamashita used kicks to break out of the hold, hit a Right High Kick and then got the victory with the Attitude Adjustment.

*V2 for Miyu Yamashita.

For the first time in their half decade long rivalry, Miyu Yamashita has beaten Sakisama! In the days coming into today’s big main event, Sakisama had gone viral on Twitter with her ability to look elegant while wrestling. So that along with her virtually flawless record against Yamashita had her entering the match with a lot of momentum. However Yamashita matched her kick for kick, getting closer to victory by hitting the Attitude Adjustment from the second rope and also the Crash Rabbit Heat to the back of the head. Sakisama grabbed hold with a Triangle Choke but Yamashita lifted her way free and hit the Skull Kick. The final moments had both strike each other with a High Kick. Sakisama fell down but Yamashita was able to bounce off of the ropes and hit the Crash Rabbit Heat for the three count.

After the match Yamashita said Sakisama is the one opponent who frustrates her more than any other. It took Yamashita putting the Princess Of Princess Title on the line to finally beat her. After all that, today’s first win makes Yamashita very happy indeed. She thanked the fans for supporting her and Maki Itoh for being her second at ringside. As a champion, Yamashita has no limits! Backstage Yamashita said she still hates Sakisama but also wants to fight her again and again. Sakisama also said something similar about the “Pelican” in her brief post-match statement. Yamashita also wants to enter the Tokyo Princess Cup because she still hasn’t won it yet. She wants to be at her best when and win it as the champion. After that she will then know what she wants to do next. It confirms that the next Princess Title match won’t be until after the tournament.

Hyper Misao told everyone her tag team partners Nao Kakuta & Mahiro Kiryu have high social skills because they previously had jobs before becoming pro wrestlers. They wanted to give their business cards to the opposing team to prove this. Of course, this turned out to be a trap for Misao’s team to jump the bell. Marika Kobashi and The Magical Sugar Rabbits immediately turned things around and went on to win.

Raku used a Cross-Arm Backslide Pin to get the upset over Hikari Noa. Raku said she has lost to Noa in Singles matches plenty of times but she wants to challenge her for the International Princess Title! Noa happily accepted the challenge and wants the match to happen in Ryogoku KFC Hall on 7th July. She lost to Raku here today so she may as well defend the title against her in the same venue. Noa warned that she is going to be crazy in the ring because she only just recently watched Jun Kasai’s new documentary.

Today is the first time Moka Miyamoto directly won a match! Her Modified Cobra Twist is now called the Rashomon and she used it to submit Yuki Arai. The name has nothing to do with the famous story, instead it means her first win is like walking straight through a Rashomon gate to enter the big city. At least that’s how I remember it. She said her trainee period lasted a long time because of Covid-19 and she was disappointed she couldn’t get her first win in her first year. But she is still really happy with getting the first win today. Her next goal is to win a singles match. She also looks forward to fighting Arai again. Shoko Nakajima commented that the rise in reliable and enthusiastic juniors in Tokyo Joshi is increasing so she will do her best not to lose against them.

A brief alliance was formed between Yuki Kamifuku & Arisu Endo to gang up on Rika Tatsumi. It became a free for all that ended in a flurry of finishers. Endo gave Tatsumi the Tsuruga Castle Knee Drop across the back of her neck. Kamifuku gave Endo the Famouser but Tatsumi came back to hit her with the Hip Attack. Tatsumi then pinned Endo with a Rotating Leg Fold to survive with the win.

When Kaya Toribami used her agility to avoid Nodoka Tenma’s attacks, Tenma couldn’t help but mumble “cool” out loud.

Miyu Yamashita’s goal of becoming the first Double Princess Champion ends in failure. Even worse is now she may be the one who ends up helping Sakisama achieve it instead! It looked liked 121000000 had NEO Biishiki-gun figured out. Maki Itoh’s hard head took no damage from Mei Saint-Michel’s steel tray. She did some damage with it herself when she used it to amplify a Kokeshi Headbutt. Yamashita made it up to Sakisama’s level and she did the Attitude Adjustment but Saint-Michel broke the count, cut off Yamashita’s attack and hit the Tarte Tatin with her partner’s help. Sakisama took over and applied the Versailles Foot Choke, rendering Yamashita unconscious.

After the match, Saint-Michel said the rose of victory is beautiful today. She asked Sakisama if the result means she will take the Princess Of Princess Title home with her because the “pelican” Yamashita has been calling herself the strongest in the company and Sakisama just beat her. Itoh also asked Yamashita if she was going to do anything because the ace and champion of Tokyo Joshi Pro shouldn’t be the one losing. Sakisama told Itoh to shut up and said she isn’t interested in championships. However, Yamashita seems to care a lot about the Princess Title so taking it from her just to make her more upset is a very tempting idea. Yamashita accepted the challenge and the match is booked for 26th June at Ryogoku KFC Hall. Saint-Michel cheered on her master to win and Sakisama promised to dye the white belt into her colour of roses.

Hikari Noa survived a close call to mark her first International Princess Title defence. Marika Kobashi entered the match with a new outfit and a determination to win even if it meant taking the fight outside the ring. Her focus was on the Front Neck Lock and Standing Guillotine Leg Drop but Noa’s use of the Blizzard Suplex won out in the end. Backstage Noa called Kobashi and the Gal culture she loves strong. She isn’t going to visit Shibuya any time soon because of that. It’s scary stuff but beating the scary stuff means Noa has nothing to fear for what’s next. She still wants to do a proper death match for example and the championship doesn’t need to be involved if that is the hold up. Kobashi blamed the loss on the lack of Gals in the room supporting her with good vibes.

It is well known by now how much Rika Tatsumi likes Mizuki. According to Hyper Misao this was a problem she felt the need to fix. So she invented a piece of headgear for Tatsumi to wear called the Kimochi Ayatsu Rail Z. According to Tatsumi it converts her love for Mizuki into love for Misao. In reality it allowed Misao to make Tatsumi do whatever she wanted including attack Mizuki without hesitation. The Magical Sugar Rabbits got to remove the headgear and the match went on as normal and Yuka Sakazaki picked up the win. Misao held the remains of the headgear backstage and said the invention is 5 years of her life down the drain.

Yuki Arai had new entrance music for her first singles match. She got to hit Mirai Maiumi with the Finally Axe Kick but couldn’t pin her quick enough to win. She did get very close to win when she ducked a Lariat and used a Backslide Pin for a nearfall. Another attempt at the move was avoided and Maiumi smashed her with a Lariat. She then got the SKE48 star to submit to the Miramare. At least Arai got an MSS48 t-shirt out of it. Maiumi announced backstage that Arai and Yuki Kamifuku both passed their tests to join MSS48. Unfortunately Maiumi also announced that MSS48 was splitting up today.

Speaking of Kamifuku, she got the win for her team in Match #3. It was the first time she was teaming with Nao Kakuta in a regular tag match and also the first time they’ve been in the ring together since their IP Title bout back in April. Kamifuku recently learned to show respect to people like Kakuta for having longer wrestling careers than her. Miu Watanabe appreciated having a fresh team of opponents to fight. Mahiro Kiryu though was disappointed she couldn’t win today.

Also having her first singles match today was Kaya Toribami. The masked woman was put into a speedy battle against Shoko Nakajima. She hit her big move, a Twisting Senton off of the ropes the first time but found no target when she went to do it again. Nakajima caught her in a Butterfly Lock and transitioned over to the Unmanned Local Train Hold for the submission victory. Nakajima gave a little backstory in her post-match interview. She originally met Toribami two years ago where they trained together for something outside of wrestling. When Toribami showed interest in becoming a wrestler, Nakajima encouraged her to do it. Toribami said she felt nervous wrestling in Korakuen Hall but she was a little bit prepared because she already wrestled in Saitama Super Arena.

The opening match was a senpai team versus a kohai team with the veterans coming out on top. Raku got the pin on Arisu Endo with the Doctor Yellow. Nodoka Tenma was happy to see a good turnout for TJPW’s first Korakuen show held on a weeknight. She is also determined not to lose against the younger wrestlers. Yuki Aino tried cheering her sister up by reminding her she only turned “22” earlier this month. Suzume referred to her team as the 1998 class (Moka Miyamoto was born in 1999 but it’s close enough). Yuki Arai is also of similar age to the group so Suzume hopes the five of them can team together some day. Haruna Neko swore to get revenge on Pom Harajuku for targeting her paw during the match.
