Nagoya Civic Gymnasium 3rd Stadium

1. Miyu Yamashita & Yuki Arai Vs Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto

Yuki Arai’s first match in Nagoya is a big enough deal to main event the show because Nagoya is the home of SKE48. She will team with her mentor Miyu Yamashita against Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto. Another SKE48 member Shiori Aoki will be on commentary for the match.

Maki Itoh suffered a fractured left cheekbone in her Tokyo Princess Cup Quarter Final match. It will take two to four weeks for it to heal but she will definitely wrestle on 14th August. She will miss this Saturday’s show though.

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Shoko Nakajima Vs Shoko Nakajima
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Semi Final: Mizuki Vs Maki Itoh

The semi final draw was held and the matchups are confirmed. Itoh is confident she will be fully healed in time to face Mizuki in the main event. Overcoming the pain is what makes Itoh stronger and this is the opponents she wants more than anyone else. Mizuki is aiming for the three-peat and has never lost to Itoh before. Winning this match will give her the confidence she needs to win the final 24 hours later. Miu Watanabe is now four years into her pro wrestling career and has fallen in love with it. She also revealed the idol she looks up to most is Mayu Watanabe from AKB48. Her opponent Shoko Nakajima reaches the final four once again but she isn’t taking it for granted. Tokyo Joshi Pro has grown so much over the years that it motivates her to be the best again.

Yuka Sakazaki has her first match back in Japan since coming home from the latest AEW tour.

A few other return appearances brings the Rika Tatsumi Vs NEO Biishiki-gun feud back to life. Yukio Saint Laurent and Antonio Honda get involved again. The only difference is instead of a zombie we get Pom Harajuku.

7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata (c) Vs Jun Akiyama & Yusuke Okada

In a press conference today the participants of both title matches got to speak. The KO-D Tag Team Titles match will be Yusuke Okada’s first championship shot in DDT since he signed with the company. Jun Akiyama is looking forward to teaming with his student and trusts him enough to let him do his stuff. Shunma Katsumata is determined not to lose the titles in his first defence. He also wants to pin Akiyama again like he did at the Ultimate Tag League. His partner Konosuke Takeshita said he will focus on Akiyama because he can rely on Katsumata to win the match if it comes down to him. The match serves as a clash of different wrestling styles and philosophies. Takeshita says there is no correct answer for pro wrestling that applies to everybody. Akiyama disagrees because he thinks the Giant Baba style that he learned has all of the right answers. Baba’s way is the correct way and the proof is in Akiyama being the current KO-D Openweight Champion.

The Olympic atmosphere in Japan has inspired Shinya Aoki to defend the DDT Extreme Title against MAO in a Hardcore Judo match. Aoki and MAO aren’t sure themselves what the rules are in a Hardcore Judo match but they are excited to do it.

DDT “TENJIN WARS 2021”, 12/09/2021
Fukuoka Nishitetsu Hall

1. Special Single Match ~ DDT Vs Ganbare☆Joshi Pro Wrestling: Saki Akai Vs Yuna Manase

It is a match Yuna Manase originally wanted at “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021” but it never came to be. She wants a singles match against Saki Akai so much she crashed a DDT show to demand it. Akai doesn’t have any strong feelings about her opponent. She remembers the year she debuted people online were hoping the two of them would team together but other than that they are from completely different parts of the wrestling scene. Akai recently wrestled in Ganpro and felt everyone there has passion but it went away very quickly. If Manase’s fire is red then Akai’s fire is blue and that is much more hotter.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AMEBA PRESENTS 8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 31/07/2021
Shinjuku FACE
226 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Mirai Maiumi, Pom Harajuku & Kaya Toribami defeated Yuki Kamifuku, Mahiro Kiryu & Moka Miyamoto when Harajuku pinned Miyamoto with the Pom Do Justice (9:19).
2. 3 Way Match: Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma and Haruna Neko when Misao pinned Neko with the Hypami Returns (8:22).
3. Hikari Noa, Raku & Yuki Arai defeated Nao Kakuta, Marika Kobashi & Arisu Endo when Noa pinned Endo with the Blizzard Suplex (11:11).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Maki Itoh defeated Suzume with the Itoh Punish (11:32).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Miu Watanabe defeated Yuki Aino with the Tear Drop (12:15).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Shoko Nakajima defeated Rika Tatsumi with the Tear Drop (13:21).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Quarter Final: Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Cutie Special (14:31).

The Tokyo Princess Cup Three-peat is still on for Mizuki after she eliminates the biggest threat in the tournament. Miyu Yamashita is out in the Quarter Finals! A big moment came when Yamashita attempted to do an Avalanche Attitude Adjustment but Mizuki left her hanging upside down and hit a Diving Foot Stomp through her. Another big Diving Foot Stomp to the outside put Yamashita in danger but she used her kicks to get out of a defensive state. Mizuki prevented the Crash Rabbit Heat from happening by clinging onto Yamashita’s leg before she could run. Yamashita pulled off a normal Attitude Adjustment but Mizuki kicked out at two. She then dodged the Skull Kick, used a Jackknife Pin for a nearfall and immediately hit a Double Stomp out of it. Mizuki hit the Cutie Special but couldn’t pull off a bridge for the pin. She had to do one more Diving Foot Stomp before doing another Cutie Special to win the match.

Mizuki pulled Yamashita into the centre of the ring so she wouldn’t leave at the end of the show. Mizuki told the fans she defeated a monster today. She used to be jealous of Yamashita for having abilities that she does not have. But then Mizuki figured out that she has abilities that Yamashita doesn’t have too. Mizuki thanked Yamashita for the match and promised to win the Princess Cup for her. She also gave a shoutout to Yuka Sakazaki who has returned from her American excursion but is currently at home in quarantine. Together Mizuki and Yamashita ended the show by shouting “Happy Happy!” Backstage Yamashita said that Mizuki is also a monster in the ring just like her. She is frustrated to get eliminated from the tournament yet again but she will continue to enter the Princess Cup for as long as she is in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She is already looking forward to the 9th one.

There are two things you can count on in the Princess Cup. Yamashita eventually loses and Shoko Nakajima always does great. For the 6th time in 8 tournaments Nakajima reaches the Semi Finals! She defeated Rika Tatsumi by breaking out of the White Dragon Sleeper and hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. She then followed up with a Double Arm DDT and got the three count with the Diving Senton. Nakajima knew that Tatsumi was fighting for something so she counted on one opportunity opening itself up for her to win today. Tatsumi said Nakajima is too big of a kaiju for her to beat. She may look small but she is bigger than Mt. Fuji, the Tokyo Tower and the Sky Tree. She is the size of Mount Everest!

Only one fresh face made it to the Semi Finals this year and it is Miu Watanabe. She showed Yuki Aino just how powerful she is with a very Giant Swing. Later she powered out of the UBV and knocked her down with a big Shoulder Block. A Laserbeam punch was used to set up the Tear Drop and Watanabe punched her ticket to the final four. Watanabe said her matches with Aino are always important and pointed to their Princess Tag Team Titles match last November as an example. She promised to do her best with the Giant Swing as she approaches the final rounds.

Maki Itoh reaches the Semi Final for the second year in a row. She had to go through a scrap to get there though. Suzume ambushed Itoh with a Dropkick from behind during her entrance and they fought around ringside. Back in the ring, Suzume caught Itoh’s Diving Headbutt with the Ring A Bell. Suzume went for her finisher again later but Itoh blocked it and put her in the Itoh Punish for the submission win. Itoh pointed to the scratch under her left eye with one hand while sticking up her middle finger on the other to celebrate her win. You’d think Itoh would be furious at Suzume for damaging the cutest face in the world but that’s not the case. Instead Itoh thinks it is amazing because she doesn’t feel any pain from it at all! It shows she is getting better and she will continue to get better every day.

There was a disappointed response to this year’s Olympic Games opening ceremony. So Hyper Misao, Nodoka Tenma and Haruna Neko held their own as part of their 3 Way Match. Perfume wasn’t in this one either so the girls had to perform in their place.

At the start of the show it was announced that Yuki Arai will have her first main event match on 7th August. The show is happening in Nagoya, the home of SKE48. Arai will team with Yamashita against Yuki Aino & Moka Miyamoto. SKE48 member Shiori Aoki will be in attendance too.

1. Hikari Noa, Nodoka Tenma & Kaya Toribami defeated Yuki Kamifuku, Mirai Maiumi & Haruna Neko when Tenma pinned Neko with the Killswitch (11:07).
2. Mizuki, Yuki Aino, Nao Kakuta & Arisu Endo defeated Miyu Yamashita, Miu Watanabe, Pom Harajuku & Moka Miyamoto when Aino pinned Miyamoto with the Venus DDT (15:06).
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Suzume defeated Mahiro Kiryu with the Ring A Bell (7:53).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Maki Itoh defeated Raku with the Itoh Punish (9:03).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Shoko Nakajima defeated Marika Kobashi with the Northern Lights Suplex (5:41).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Rika Tatsumi defeated Hyper Misao with a Rotating Leg Hold (15:03).

The four days of shows in a row are done and Round 2 is completed. The Tokyo Princess Cup is now down to the final eight. The very last match was an emotional one because it was Rika Tatsumi Vs Hyper Misao. This was their first singles match together since Misao’s phantom retirement match last November. This was so important that Misao dropped all her antics and wrestled a serious match. It was so serious that Misao’s mask got knocked off her face in the final moments but she continued to fight. Tatsumi countered a Gedo Clutch into a Rotating Log Hold to get the win and move on to the Quarter Finals. The two of them bumped fists after the match. Backstage Misao said the match is connected to the story that has been going on since November. She thought she would win today and make it the final episode.

Meeting Tatsumi in the quarters is Shoko Nakajima. Her first match in the tournament was a win against Marika Kobashi. From the get go, Kobashi went for the Front Neck Lock and she would use the move several times. But Nakajima was able to break out of the move and pin Kobashi with the Northern Light Suplex. Kobashi said the God Of Gals sent her encouragement with a day full of beautiful sunlight. She blamed the loss on not getting enough of a tan from that sunlight. It was a message from the God of Gals that she doesn’t have enough vibes as a wrestler or a Gal. Nakajima now moves on to face Tatsumi in the final eight.

Maki Itoh’s determination to meet Mizuki in the later rounds pushed her through to beat Raku. She wore earplugs during the match so she wouldn’t her Raku’s lullabyes. Raku still briefly sent her to sleep with a Sleeper Hold. That was when she noticed the ear plugs. Itoh used a High Angle DDT to counter the Doctor Yellow and narrowly avoided being pinned with the Hurricane Turn. When Itoh put Raku in a Crab Hold she dragged her to the middle of the ring and turned it into the Itoh Punish for the victory. She expected the match to go 60-40 her way but she thinks it ended up more 80-20. So that’s a good sign she is getting stronger.

Last but not least, Suzume breaks through to the Quarter Finals for the first time, pinning Mahiro Kiryu with the Ring A Bell. It is a results Suzume has been waiting for ever since Kiryu beat her in a singles match shortly after she debuted. She admitted she wasn’t even thinking about the tournament while they fought. Next up for her is Itoh.

Two shows in, two shows to go for the opening round rush of the Tokyo Princess Cup. The big story seems to be Mizuki having a target on her back with both Miyu Yamashita and Maki Itoh wanting to be the ones to eliminate her. If Yamashita and Mizuki both win tomorrow then they face each other in the Quarter Final. That’s if Mirai Maiumi doesn’t deliver the Miramare Shock she is always promising first. Yuki Kamifuku recently got her motorbike license so her dream of winning the tournament and being gifted with a prize bike is as strong as ever. Haruna Neko won a non-tournament 3 Way match today but can she pull it off against Yuki Aino in the Cup tomorrow?

1. 3 Vs 4 Handicap Match: Shoko Nakajima, Rika Tatsumi & Hyper Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Haruna Neko & Suzume when Tatsumi pinned Suzume with the Twist Of Fate (10:53).
2. Hikari Noa, Mizuki, Miu Watanabe & Yuki Arai defeated Maki Itoh, Yuki Kamifuku, Marika Kobashi & Kaya Toribami when Noa pinned Toribami with the Blizzard Suplex (13:23).
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Mahiro Kiryu defeated Arisu Endo with the Spinebuster (9:00).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Raku defeated Moka Miyamoto with the Doctor Yellow (6:01).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Mirai Maiumi defeated Pom Harajuku with the Miramare (8:31).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miyu Yamashita defeated Nao Kakuta with the Crash Rabbit Heat (11:27).

The Tokyo Princess Cup begins with Miyu Yamashita advancing past the first round. Given her past experiences in the tournament, she is treating this win against Nao Kakuta as a big deal. That is why she used the Crash Rabbit Heat, which in recent times is only used in title matches. But the hard work has just begun with Yuki Kamifuku waiting for Yamashita in Round 2. Backstage Yamashita talked about Maki Itoh’s goal to beat Mizuki in the tournament. She points out the brackets are laid out for Yamashita to face Mizuki first and she is determined not to lose to her. Itoh overheard Yamashita’s comments and it led to an awkward moment between them.

Another challenge, another custom shirt for Mirai Maiumi. She had to out-think her opponent Pom Harajuku. Her Back Drop was countered into a Rolling Cradle but Maiumi turned it over into the Miramare to get the submission win. Now Maiumi faces Mizuki in Round 2 and she warns a Miramare Shock will happen to the two time winner! Harajuku always heard Maiumi talk about SS so she spent all of the night before thinking what it means. Harajuku thought it meant Sirloin Steak so she ate one before the match and didn’t like it. That’s probably why she lost.

Raku earned her first ever singles win by beating Moka Miyamoto. She thanked the fans who sent her messages of support before the match. She was able to do her best because of them. She faces Maki Itoh in the next round and is already thinking of lullabies and other tricks to make Itoh fall asleep. Miyamoto is disappointed to lose in the first round but promises to make up for it in the non-tournament matches for the rest of this week.

In the first tournament match of the day, Mahiro Kiryu eliminated Arisu Endo. She felt Endo was building up momentum so she couldn’t afford to lose to her. Kiryu’s next round opponent is Suzume. The two have gotten to know each other a lot in their private lives but Kiryu doesn’t want to lose against her junior. Her plan is to wrestle the match in her own way so she won’t get swept up by Suzume’s pace.

3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Moka Miyamoto Vs Raku
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Arisu Endo Vs Mahiro Kiryu

Miyu Yamashita welcomes the challenge that comes with Tokyo Joshi Pro growing larger. The Princess Cup has been her biggest Achilles Heel because she has never won it and often suffers her worst results there. Nao Kakuta suddenly finds herself fighting the Princess Of Princess Champion in Round 1. She understands she would lose this match 99% of the time so will aim to make this the 1% chance she will win. Pom Harajuku picked No. 4 and is treating it as her lucky number. This is her first match back since recovering from Covid. Mirai Maiumi has developed into the type of person she wanted to be but hasn’t been able to win anything yet. This summer she is determined to cause the Miramare Shock! Moka Miyamoto is looking forward to entering her first Princess Cup after not being included last year. Raku hasn’t won a singles match yet and sees Miyamoto is gaining momentum. She says she will do her best to beat her. Arisu Endo’s motivation is to face Suzume in the 2nd Round. Mahiro Kiryu stands in her way and won’t let her pass her by.

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Miu Watanabe Vs Kaya Toribami
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Yuki Aino Vs Yuki Arai
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Hikari Noa Vs Rika Tatsumi
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Marika Kobashi Vs Nodoka Tenma

Last year Miu Watanabe finished in the final 8. This time she is aiming to improve on that and reach the semi finals. Kaya Toribami knows how strong she is in their previous tag matches together. Toribami doesn’t have much experience but she will give it her all to win. Yuki Aino is also going to use what she learned in the last year to make it past the quarter finals. Her opponent Yuki Arai is coming off her first win and is confirmed to be on all of the shows during the tournament, no matter how she fares in the Cup itself. Perhaps the biggest match in Round 1 is Hikari Noa Vs Rika Tatsumi. Hikari’s first singles match against a senior member of the roster was against Tatsumi back in 2018. This time she is fighting her as the International Princess Champion and the winner faces Hyper Misao in Round 2. Noa wants to advance and face Misao in a death match. Tatsumi appreciates seeing other wrestlers achieve their dreams but she doesn’t want it to happen at her expense. She has a first time singles match against Mizuki as her big dream to fight for. Nodoka Tenma has never lost to Kobashi in singles matches but she has only advanced past Round 1 once. That was the year Tenma reached the semi final though so she wants to walk down that road again.

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2A: Winner Of Match 1A Vs Yuki Kamifuku
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2B: Winner Of Match 1B Vs Mizuki
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2E: Winner Of Match 1F Vs Haruna Neko

The winner of Yamashita Vs Kakuta faces Yuki Kamifuku in Round 2. Kamifuku admittingly doesn’t like wrestling in singles tournaments but you have to do what you have to do. If she wins the Princess Cup then she wants the sponsors Ameba to buy her a really big motorcycle. Mizuki has dominated the tournament by winning it the last two years. She’s hesitant if she can make it 3 in a row but will do her best because everyone is wishing her good luck. Haruna Neko is waiting for whichever Yuki comes up to fight her

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2C: Winner Of Match 1C Vs Maki Itoh
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2D: Winner Of Match 1D Vs Suzume
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2F: Winner Of Match 1G Vs Hyper Misao
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2G: Winner Of Match 1H Vs Shoko Nakajima

Maki Itoh still remembers losing to Mizuki in the semi final last year. Her goal is to win the tournament this year and surpass Mizuki. Suzume recently fought for the Princess Tag Team Titles but isn’t taking her chances here for granted. Hyper Misao is holding the same motivations she had way back in her first Princess Cup in 2015. She was chosen as a replacement back then because at the time everyone thought her superhero character had a short shelf life. She wants to win and prove she doesn’t have a shelf life at all! She heard about Noa’s request for a death match but she expects to face Tatsumi instead. Misao lost to Tatsumi in her fake retirement match last year so it’s time to get that win back. Shoko Nakajima is the only other person next to Yamashita that will be a part of every Princess Cup so far. She has the most tournament experience in the field and thinks it is all coming together for her.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GO GIRL 2 ~WOMEN ONLY ENTERTAINMENT~” Results

July 11, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “GO GIRL 2 ~WOMEN ONLY ENTERTAINMENT~”, 11/07/2021
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall
95 Fans

1. Mirai Maiumi & Suzume defeated Shoko Nakajima & Kaya Toribami when Suzume pinned Toribami with the Ring A Bell (11:37).
2. Nodoka Tenam & Raku defeated Hyper Misao & Haruna Neko when Raku pinned Neko with the Doctor Yellow (9:11).
3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta defeated Hikari Noa & Arisu Endo when Kakuta pinned Endo with the Shiden Kai (12:22).
4. Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel defeated Marika Kobashi & Mahiro Kiryu when Saint-Michel pinned Kiryu after the Tarte Tatin (10:51).
5. Mizuki, Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe defeated Shoko Nakajima, Maki Itoh & Moka Miyamoto when Mizuki pinned Miyamoto with the Cutie Special (18:57).

Today’s show was the second time Tokyo Joshi Pro performed in front of a women only audience. Mizuki admitted feeling a little shy wrestling in front of them because the atmosphere felt different. Rika Tatsumi credited the power of love for their team winning today, although Mizuki found it a little difficult to gel with Daydream. Some of the other wrestlers like Maki Itoh and Moka Miyamoto said the atmosphere felt warm and made them happy.

All of the wrestlers got to speak to introduce themselves and speak to the audience at the start of the show. Mei Saint-Michel expressed her concern that Sakisama was feeling homesick because she has not been in a good mood lately. After NEO Biishiki-gun won their match, Sakisama explained she isn’t homesick at all. In fact, she was only acting upset as a test to see how hard Saint-Michel would work for her. She cheered her up when she told her how much the fans were happy with her performance today. They then revealed their next TJPW appearance will be at the two Korakuen Hall shows on 14th & 15th August.

Shoko Nakajima worked in both the opener and main event to make up the numbers.
