The new Tokyo Princess Tag Team Champions get their first challengers. The Bakuretsu Sisters are a united force but mind games are already being played against them. Sakisama says Yuki Aino can’t do anything without her sister’s help while Misao keeps calling Nodoka Tenma a pig, something that past members of NEO Biishiki-gun have done back when Tenma was Nodoka-oneesan.

Sanshiro Takagi is on the card and he has Super Sasadango Machine to thank for it. Maybe TAJIRI too. There was a tweet from TAJIRI sent over the weekend talking about how there are different tiers of wrestling as an art form. Sasadango was offended on Takagi’s behalf when TAJIRI labelled comedy wrestling as third rate, although Takagi does not think for a moment that he was the intended target of that opinion. Even if this is a misunderstanding, Sasadango wants a match with Takagi at DDT’s biggest show of the year to prove that Takagi is anything but a third rate wrestler. He is even taking himself out of the Battle Royal to put this match together. Takagi is grateful for the opportunity and asks that their match will be a Weapon Rumble!

That’s not all, Sasadango brought up that there are now many pro wrestlers who are active in their forties including himself, Takagi and TAJIRI. He wants to inspire the DDT fans from the same age group that they can still do their best. To do this there should be a new championship. There used to be a U-30 Title for wrestlers under thirty years olds to fight over, now there should be an O-40 Title for the wrestlers over forty! Takagi thinks the idea is interesting and agrees that the winner of their match will become the first champion. After all, Takagi wants his pro wrestling to change everyone’s life and he also still wants to be a champion. Sasadango also suggested that the loser should reply to TAJIRI’s tweet.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 22/06/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
316 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Yuki Aino & Pom Harajuku defeated Himawari Unagi & Makoto Kiryu when Aino pinned Kiryu with the Side Suplex (9:24).
2. Yuna Manase, Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa defeated Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Mirai Maiumi when Manase pinned Maiumi with the Suzuki Dynamic (9:08).
3. Sakisama & Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma & Raku when Misao submitted Raku with the Libera Me (11:37).
4. Reika Saiki & Rika Tatsumi defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh when Saiki pinned Itoh with the Jackhammer (14:38).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Miu Watanabe with the Osaekomi Backslide (12:53).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Mizuki defeated Shoko Nakajima with the Diving Foot Stomp (14:32).

The Magical Sugar Rabbits join Natsumi Maki and Yuna Manase in the Tokyo Princess Cup final four. Mizuki won against Shoko Nakajima when she blocked the Diving Senton with her knees. Mizuki then countered the Unmanned Local Train Hold into the Cutie Special for a nearfall and got the pin with the Diving Foot Stomp.

Yuka Sakazaki had a tough time trying to beat Miu Watanabe and almost became the next big upset in the tournament. She got put in the Giant Swing, the Canadian Backbreaker and even took the Tear Drop. Luckily for Sakazaki she landed near the ropes and had enough time to kickout of the pin after she was pulled away. Watanabe went for the Laserbeam strike but Sakazauki dodged it and pinned Watanabe with the Osaekomi Backslide.

The semi-final lottery was held to determine the matches. Mizuki drew Maki and Sakazaki gets Manase. The semi-finals and final take place on 7th July.

Reika Saiki wrestled her last match as a regular for Tokyo Joshi Pro, even scoring the pinfall. Saiki said she feels indebted to Tokyo Joshi for the three years she spent with them. During the match she & Rika Tatsumi did stereo Figure 4 Leg Locks together, Keiji Muto style. Saiki said that although she began in WRESTLE-1 and will always be a part of that company, she grew up here and will continue to work hard in the joshi world. She will get the chance to wrestle in Toyko Joshi again someday.

Yuki Aino took the bullet for her sister Nodoka Tenma during Match #4. Sakisama went to give Tenma a Running PK from the apron but Aino put herself in front of Tenma to keep her out of harm’s way. Tenma was then able to hit a Cross Body on Sakisama from the apron. That didn’t help Raku though since she submitted to Misao moments later. Misao insulted Tenma after the match prompting Aino to defend her again. She said Tenma always protected her because she is strong. Together they are strong too and they can prove it by winning the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles! The challenge was accepted but Sakisama told Aino that she can’t do anything without her sister. She pointed her rose towards Aino but Tenma suddenly grabbed the rose and ate it!

Maki Itoh wants to form a tag team with Miyu Yamashita and compete for the Princess Tag Titles. She also confirms that Chris Brookes is now a member of the Itoh Respect Army.

*The Magical Sugar Rabbits fail in V7. NEO Biishiki-gun becomes the 5th Tokyo Princess Tag Team Champions!

It took a Ripcord Knee Strike and the Vanitas from Misao to end The Magical Sugar Rabbits’ long title reign. Sakisama got on the microphone and stood over Yuka Sakazaki while Misao took away the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles. She asked Mizuki if she was ready to join NEO Biishiki-gun but Mizuki knocked her back. Sakisama was appalled but came to a realisation. It was never Mizuki who she saw beauty in, it was her own reflection when she looked into Mizuki’s eyes. NEO Biishiki-gun ended the show by welcoming Tokyo Joshi Pro into their new world!

We have our first two semi-finalists for the Tokyo Princess Cup. A scramble of cradles led to Natsumi Maki pinning Maki Itoh. Maki felt there is something connecting her to Itoh and she promises to do her best for both of them. Yuna Manase continues to prove her worth by beating Rika Tatsumi. She fought out of the Dragon Sleeper and struck Tatsumi with a Lariat. That set up the Kakato Drop finish.

It was announced that there will be a Tokyo Joshi dark match at “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2019” on 15th July. The match is Tatsumi, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino Vs Maki, Manase & Himawari Unagi.

In the Tokyo Princess Cup quarter finals we begin with the return of Natsumi Maki and Maki Itoh’s idol wrestling rivalry. Rika Tatsumi is climbing back up the ladder since returning from injury while Yuna Manase fights to prove she belongs in the high tier of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster.

The serious side of the DISASTER BOX unit are also currently absent from the card so the tag match i Shizuoka might set something up along the way.

June 1, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 01/06/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
258 Fans – No Vacancy

1. 3 Way Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Pom Harajuku and Mahiro Kiryu when Tatsumi pinned Harajuku with a Sunset Flip (7:16).
2. Sakisama & Misao defeated Nodoka Tenma & Himawari Unagi when Misao pinned Unagi with the Vanitas (11:07).
3. Shoko Nakajima, Yuka Sakazaki & Miu Watanabe defeated Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Mirai Maiumi when Nakajima submitted Maiumi with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (12:25).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Maki Itoh defeated Raku with the Itoh Special (6:16).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuna Manase defeated Yuki Aino with the Suzuki Dynamic (6:06).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuka Sakazaki defeated Mina Shirakawa with the Magical Girl Splash (9:36).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Mizuki defeated Miyu Yamashita with the Cutie Special (11:10).

The Tokyo Princess Cup has always been Miyu Yamashita’s weak point and this year was no different. Sometimes it was shock upsets against weaker opponents and other times it’s been first round eliminations caused by wrestlers just as strong as her. Today was the latter. Mizuki outwrestled Yamashita by putting her in a Facelock. Yamashita rolled out of it but Mizuki caught her in a Casadora and followed with a Double Stomp. From there Mizuki hit the Cutie Special to get the win. Mizuki was in tears while she gave her victory speech and admitted she didn’t even think she would be talking on the microphone after the main event today. She respects Yamashita for all the times she watched her headline a Korakuen Hall show. Today’s win now gives Mizuki enough confidence to believe that she will win this year’s Princess Cup!

A disappointed Mina Shirakawa after her match said over and over that she wanted to fly today just like Yuka Sakazaki. Shirakawa attacked Sakazaki before the match began in a move she admits is inspired by Hayabusa’s ambush on Jushin Liger from the Super J Cup. Although she lost the match, Shirakawa wants to get strong enough so she can wrestle abroad like Sakazaki just did.

Yuna Manase is still feeling motivated after her “Pochari Joshi” match in Ganbare☆Wrestling back in April. She wants to win for the fans that cheered for her back then and also to prove she belongs in Tokyo Joshi Pro. With this she was able to stay in her match after taking Yuki Aino’s Side Suplex and won with the Suzuki Dynamic.

That Raku is a sneaky one, I tell you. When her match with Maki Itoh was about to begin, Raku was crying with nerves while she shook Itoh’s hand and telling herself to pull things together. Then when Itoh was returning to her corner, Raku jumped her with a flying kick! Itoh stopped her with a DDT and the Itoh Special to go through. Raku explained that the lyrics to Itoh’s music was what moved her to tears and the audience’s cheers grew her desire to win.

The Tokyo Princess Cup 2nd Round matches are Natsumi Maki Vs Maki Itoh, Rika Tatsumi Vs Yuna Manase, Shoko Nakajima Vs Mizuki and Miu Watanabe Vs Yuka Sakazaki.

NEO Biishiki-gun were put off by how excitable Himawari Unagi was by their moves in the ring. But never mind about her, it’s Mizuki that they’re interested in. Misao said that when she and Sakisama return to Shin-Kiba 1st RING next week they will win the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles.

Rika Tatsumi expected Pom Harajuku and Mahiro Kiryu to team up against her so she asked for the 3 Way Match to be turned into a Handicap Match. However Harajuku and Kiryu assured her that they wanted the ordinary 3 Way Match as planned. Harajuku hit the Laforet Harajuku to Kiryu but Tatsumi then cradled her to steal the pin.

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.


Tokyo Princess Cup 1st Round Matches

May 18, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu Vs Raku, Mina Shirakawa & Mirai Maiumi
2. Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki Vs Marika Kobashi & Yuki Aino
3. Sakisama & Misao Vs Mizuki & YUMI
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Rika Tatsumi Vs Himawari Unagi
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Nodoka Tenma Vs Miu Watanabe
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Natsumi Maki Vs Hikari Noa
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuki Kamifuku

Shoko Nakajima has a lot she wants to do as the current TOKYO Princess Champion. She already had a successful title defence. Next is winning the Tokyo Princess Cup, a tournament she has had plenty of experience with. She wants to win it as the champion so she can choose her next challenger for Osaka in September. Yuki Kamifuku likes to live happliy and brightly. She promises to do her best so she can have a fun summer.

Pandemic Boo-Boo explodes! The team have been paired together for the first round. Hikari Noa is the only member of the Up Up Girls to have previously competed in the Princess Cup. She said Natsumi Maki is the most difficult person to wrestling in the tournament. Noa admits she probably won’t win but it is still her goal to get the victory no matter who she faces.

Miu Watanabe failed to enter the Princess Cup last year because she lost the qualifier match to Hikari Noa. A lot has changed this year so Watanabe is taking her chance to fight power with power against Nodoka Tenma. Speaking of Tenma, she is aiming to go one step ahead of her performance from last year and reach the final.

Himawari Unagi thanks everyone for voting her into the final spot. The first time she saw pro wrestling was last year’s Princess Cup final where she got to watch really cool and pretty women having amazing fights. She wants to be a part of such matches too. Rika Tatsumi felt she lost more than just a match when she was eliminated in the semi-finals last year. Her injury took place shortly afterwards so she is coming into this tournament feeling dissatisfied about her current situation. The only way she can overcome this is win the Princess Cup!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 01/06/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Yuna Manase Vs Yuki Aino
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Maki Itoh Vs Raku
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mina Shirakawa
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Miyu Yamashita Vs Mizuki

Mizuki has gotten so used to tag team wrestling that the possibility of going on a singles run makes her feel a little uneasy. She won’t have a tag partner to rely on when she faces Miyu Yamashita in the first round. Yamashita needs to regain some momentum after losing her two championships. But the Princess Cup has traditionally been her Achilles heel. It’s the one place where she suffers upset defeats more often than anywhere else.

Mina Shirakawa describes her match with Yuka Sakazaki is a situation similar to Hayabusa Vs Jushin Liger from the 1994 Super J Cup! Sakazaki is gaining attention outside of Japan so Shirakawa sees this as a great opportunity for her.

Raku gets to enter the Princess Cup for the first time. She wasn’t considered for last year’s tournament because she had not won a match by that point. Maki Itoh intimidated a Weekly Pro Wrestling promoter into calling her the favourite to win this year’s tournament.

Yuna Manase is aiming to get past the 1st Round which is something she was unable to do in her previous two attempts. She believes she cannot advance her career if does not advance into at least the 2nd round. Yuki Aino has impressed Manase with her hard work lately and Aino likes to think of her as a kind sister. Aino wants to leave a strong impression on her as she enters the tournament for the first time.

None of the NEO Biishiki-gun members are entering the tournament this year. They are more interested in winning the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles. Also Sakisama wants Mizuki to join her collection of wrestlers. Her leadership did wonders for Misao. Imagine what it could do for Mizuki?

2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2: Winner Of Match 1C Vs Winner Of Match 1F

If either or both of The Magical Sugar Rabbits make it to Round 2 their matches will take place on the 22nd June. This was done to avoid the lottery having either (or both) of them wrestle twice on the 8th when they already have their title defence scheduled that day.
