1. Raku & Miu defeated Hikari & Hinano when Miu submitted Hinano with the Canadian Backbreaker (4:50).
2. Nodoka-oneesan defeated Marika Kobashi with the WAR Special (5:56).
3. Rika Tatsumi & Maho Kurone defeated Mizuki & Hyper Misao when Tatsumi pinned Misao with the Missile Hips (10:10).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuu & Yuki Kamifuku when Saki-sama submitted Kamifuku with the Versailles Foot Choke (12:38).
5. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Samara with the Magical Girl Splash (8:24).
6. Syoko Nakajima & Yuna Manase defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Ito when Manase pinned Ito with the Kakato Drop (15:16).

Yuna Manase felt “amazingly happy” after winning the main event and getting to do the show closing speech for the first time. She credited Syoko Nakajima for keeping her safe throughout the match, which allowed her to work hard. They closed out the show by taking suggestions from the audience for delicious food to eat in Nagoya. They decided on miso cutlet, chicken wings and deep fried shrimp.

Yuka Sakazaki did the Magical Girl Splash twice to beat Samara. Sakazaki didn’t hit the move properly the first time so took the risk to do it again. It paid off.

Today’s show was the first time Saki-sama has ever visited Nagoya. After she and Azusa Christie won their match, Saki-sama told everyone she wanted to buy a Golden Shachihoko statue. Christie promised she would schedule an appointment with the governor of Nagoya at once to do that. When that is done they can then focus their attention to the next Tokyo Joshi Pro show in Shinkiba. Saki said NEO Biishiki-gun will successfully defend the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles against the blue and black pigs that make up the BRAVE☆MATES at that show. Christie corrected Saki by telling her the title match is taking place in Seijo a few weeks later. Some of the fans laughed at Saki’s mistake and that made Christie angry. Christie called them rude and NEO Biishiki-gun left the ring.

Even though Hyper Misao was on the opposite team as Rika Tatsumi, Misao wanted to help Tatsumi with her crush on Mizuki. First, they want to get #好きです辰巳リカ trending on Twitter (I think it means “I Like Rika Tatsumi”) She encouraged Tatsumi to start the match with Mizuki but she was too smitten to do anything until Mizuki and Maho Kurone got the match going. Tatsumi won the match by pinning Misao but she chased after Mizuki when it was over.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, Nodoka-oneesan asked if anybody in the audience was already gifted with chocolate this week. When some people raised their hands, Nodoka told them she loves white chocolate and will be waiting to get some from them.

1. Raku & Hikari defeated Miu & Hinano when Hikari submitted Miu with a Leg Roll Clutch (6:48).
2. Mizuki defeated Hyper Misao with the Cutie Special (7:41).
3. Yuu, Nodoka-oneesan & Maki Ito defeated Rika Tatsumi, Maho Kurone & Yuki Kamifuku when Nodoka pinned Kamifuku with the Backflip (9:14).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Marika Kobashi whn Christie pinned Kobashi with the Christie Agape (14:45).
5. Miyu Yamashita & Syoko Nakajima defeated Nonoko & Yuna Manase when Yamashita pinned Nonoko with the Crash Rabbit Heat (14:33).

Nonoko thanked Miyu Yamashita & Syoko Nakajima for being her opponents one last time today. They were there when Nonoko joined Tokyo Joshi Pro back in 2013. Back then Nonoko only had a vague concept of what pro wrestling is. She thinks she has become a respectable wrestler since then and she has Yamashita & Nakajima to thank for that. Nonoko also has a request for Yamashita. She wants her to defend the TOKYO Princess Title against Yuna Manase! Yamashita agreed to do it because she is self-admittedly a good girl.

Nonoko’s final match will be on 3rd February and she picked Maki Ito to be her last opponent. Nonoko admitted she’s been jealous of Ito ever since she appeared in Tokyo Joshi. Ito complained about her banner falling off the wall at some point during the show and promised it will be fixed in time for their match.

Saki-sama insulted Yuka Sakazaki by calling her a cockatiel after the match. She thought Sakazaki could try the full course but she couldn’t even beat the appetiser today. Azusa Christie calmly told Sakazaki to carefully store the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Title belts for her so she won’t damaged the leather.

Nodoka-oneesan motivated her partners to exercise with her before their match. It seemed to have worked because Nodoka pulled off a rare win as a result.

Hyper Misao tried to play mind games with Mizuki by saying Rika Tatsumi is cuter than her. The plan didn’t work.

The rest of the Up Up Girls have figured out how much of a killer move Miu’s Canadian Backbreaker is. Raku & Hikaru did what they could to stop Miu from doing the move. Hikaru ended up countering the hold ino a Leg Roll Clutch to win the match. This was her first victory after taking the fall in the previous Up Up Girls matches. The group later performed a song in the ring and talked about their wrestling goals. They all want to challenge for a championship except for Hinano. She just wants her Twitter account to be verified.

2. Yuka Sakazaki defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Magical Girl Splash (12:23).
3. Syoko Nakajima defeated Hyper Misao with the Northern Lights Suplex (12:45).

6. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Veda Scott with the Crash Rabbit Heat (12:28).
*V1 for Miyu Yamashita.

Three days after she won the TOKYO Princess Title for the second time, Miyu Yamashita marked her first defence of the reign. Veda Scott targeted Yamashita’s right leg until she could land the Back Drop. But Yamashita kicked out and her leg was in good enough condition to kick her way to victory. Yamashita admitted she put herself in a dangerous position to take the match so soon after her title win but she proved she has enough power to defend the belt in these situations. She is a champion so she must defeat her opponents anytime, anywhere and against anyone.

An odd stipulation was added to the Syoko Nakajima Vs Hyper Misao match. If either girl spoke English during the match they would have to drink a glass of apple cider vinegar. Nakajima quickly fell in a trap when Misao put her in a hold and Nakajima grabbed the ropes and shouted “Break!” After she took a drink she asked in Japanese why did Misao create this rule. When Misao wouldn’t answer, Nakajima grabbed her hair until Misao shouted “Hair!” in English. More English words were said and they drank more glasses of vinegar until the finish of the match.

Yuka Sakazaki rolled up Nodoka-oneesan inside one of the floor mats outside the ring. She then climbed the top ropes and dropped onto Nodoka. Nodoka later did the same to Sakazaki.

The teams were switched around for the second Up Up Girls match but the result was the same as the first time. Miu submitted Hikari with the Canadian Backbreaker.

1. Rika Tatsumi defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Dragon Sleeper (8:49).
2. Nonoko & Yuna Manase defeated Yuu & Hyper Misao when Nonoko pinned Misao with the Boinmaker (15:29).
3. Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki ended in a Time Limit Draw (15:00).
4. Saki-sama & Azusa Christie defeated Syoko Nakajima & Marika Kobashi when Christie pinned Kobashi with Christie Agape (14:06).
5. Reika Saiki & Maho Kurone defeated Miyu Yamashita & Nodoka-oneesan when Saiki pinned Nodoka with the Jackhammer (16:01).

This is the last stop before Tokyo Joshi Pro returns to Korakuen Hall on 4th January. Reika Saiki and Miyu Yamashita gave each other a taste of what’s to come in their double title main event. But today, Saiki got the upper hand with some help from Maho Kurone. Yamashita was taken out by Kurone’s Ouroboros. That gave Saiki the opportunity to beat Nodoka-oneesan with a Back Drop, the Shining Wizard and the Jackhammer. Saiki told Yamashita afterwards that it is fun to fight her and it will be fun to beat her in Korakuen. Yamashita didn’t respond. She also refused to shake Saiki’s hand before leaving the ring.

Azusa Takigawa has appeared for the first time since she was kidnapped by Saki-sama and Yukio Saint Laurent. She is now Sister Azusa Christie, Saki-sama’s nun. Azusa explained that Saki-sama changed everything that was weak about her and transformed her into Azusa Christie. According to the Book Of Genesis in The Bible, God created mankind in his own image. For Azusa, God is Saki-sama. The new Azusa was calm and collected during her tag team match against Syoko Nakajima & Marika Kobashi. Azusa & Saki-sama got rid of Nakajima with an Elevated Codebreaker. Azusa then gave Kobashi the Christie Agape (Skull Crushing Finale) to earn her first victory. After the match Nonoko and Yuna Manase entered the ring. Nonoko was stunned to see what Azusa had turned into. As she was trying to speak, Azusa raised her bible and threatened to hit Nonoko with it. Nonoko told her they do not hit people with books ever since they were told not to by Zexy Magazine. Azusa ignored her and knocked Nonoko out with the bible. Saki-sama then challenged the Super Milk Combination to a match at Korakuen Hall.

The Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki match ended in a time limit draw. Sakazaki targeted Mizuki’s foot and that saved Sakazaki from defeat during the final moments. Mizuki rolled her into the Cutie Special but could not hold on to the pin because of her damaged foot. She still risked it by hitting a Diving Foot Stomp afterwards but Sakazaki kicked out and the time expired. After the match Mizuki revealed who she will be teaming with when she faces the Miracle Apricots for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. It’s Mizuki’s best friend Riho! When Riho introduced herself, Sakazaki asked if this meant she was the newest member of the Ito Respect Army. Mizuki immediately said no and tried to change the subject. Syoko Nakajima said she is looking forward to fighting Riho because it is an opportunity to “conquer” Thailand (Gatoh Move’s home base) and from there, eventually the world!

Earlier in the week Nonoko announced her plans to graduate from Tokyo Joshi Pro. Today was her first match since her announcement and the other girls in the match protested the news. Hyper Misao and Yuu carried protest signs and asked Nonoko to reconsider. Nonoko loved the attention but grew annoyed at Misao’s constant chanting so she attacked her to start the match.

The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) were told that they will all be involved in a tag team match against each other for their debuts on 4th January. Hikari, Hinano, Raku and Miu all said how enthusiastic they are to wrestle soon.

1. Maho Kurone defeated Marika Kobashi with the Ouroboros (5:56).
2. Maki Ito & Mizuki defeated Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Mizuki pinned Kamifuku with a Double Stomp (8:27).
3. Saki-sama defeated Nodoka-oneesan with the Modified Foot Choke (7:15).
4. Nonoko defeated Syoko Nakajima with the Pai Fly Flow (10:24).
5. Rika Tatsumi, Yuka Sakazaki & Yuu defeated Reika Saiki, Miyu Yamashita & Azusa Takigawa when Tatsumi pinned Sakazaki with the Missile Hips (14:12).

Rika Tatsumi was feeling nervous about today’s main event but she now has plenty to be pleased about. She scored the pinfall to win the match for her team. She knows she is able to win matches but after today’s victory she is now in a new world of possibility. That includes a possible match with Reika Saiki for the TOKYO Princess Title. She had a face off with the champion at the end of the show so she definitely has Saiki’s attention.

Nonoko is getting her groove back. Now that her time in Konkatsu-gun is behind her, Nonoko is winning matches again. Today she scored a big victory over Syoko Nakajima. Now she thinks she is deserving of a championship match. Nakajima is willing to give her a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Title match but Nonoko needs to find a tag partner. Nonoko revealed that she already has one, it’s her former rival Yuna Manase! When those two were feuding they discovered they were similar after all and could make a good team together. They already have a team name, they are the Super Milk Combination and they get their title match on 23rd November!

Now that she is on her own, Saki-sama is stirring up trouble between other girls in the roster. After beating Nodoka-oneesan, Saki wondered out loud who is the weakest wrestler in Tokyo Joshi Pro, Nodoka or Azusa Takigawa. Saki wants the two of them to face off at the next show to find out the answer. Takigawa realises she loses a lot but she doesn’t like admitting it. Nodoka doesn’t want to lose at all especially against Takigawa. Saki is looking forward to seeing the low level match when it happens.

The Ito Respect Army called upon their “manager” Tetsuya Koda to solve their latest problem. Maki Ito has gone without proper entrance music for months now and is wondering how come Koda hasn’t done anything about it yet. Koda complained that he shouldn’t be part of the Ito Respect Army because he doesn’t respect anything! He only wears the Manager t-shirt because Ito forces him to. However he realises that Ito puts her trust in him and a good person does not betray that trust, so he will accept the Manager role. Koda was then surprised to learn that Ito will be releasing a new music CD on 4th January anyway.

American wrestler Veda Scott will be at the “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’18” show in Korakuen Hall on 4th January. She is a former Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion and has been given the nickname “Eyeglass Wrestler” by Tokyo Joshi. She will also be wrestling at the Osaka show on 7th January.

9. KO-D Openweight Title – Good Com Asset Presents: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Tetsuya Endo with the Cross Arm German Suplex (29:02).
*V7 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Konosuke Takeshita overcame his toughest challenge yet to achieve his 7th defence of the KO-D Openweight Title! The grudge match against Tetsuya Endo was the headline attraction for DDT’s return to Sumo Hall. Last time the two fought to an hour long draw but this time, Takeshita was able to defeat Endo in just under 30 minutes. Endo did hit the Torture Rack Bomb, the Shooting Star Press and both versions of Tetsuya In The Sky but Takeshita kicked out of all of them. Endo also reversed a Tombstone Piledriver on the ramp during an outside attack. In return, Takeshita hit Lariats, Big Boots, Pump Up Knee Strikes, German Suplexes and the Blue Thunder Bomb but Endo kicked out of them. Finally, Takeshita crossed Endo’s arms over for one last German Suplex and that one brought an end to the match. Takeshita wanted to show good sportsmanship to Endo after the match but Endo spat in his face and was carried away from the ring by DAMNATION.

Takeshita thanked the fans for coming to Sumo Hall and supporting him. His victory speech was interrupted by the new DDT Producer, Danshoku Dino. Coming out wearing a peach colored suit jacket over his wrestling gear, Dino congratulated Takeshita and said that part of his new job is to come up with new challenges for the champion. Dino told Takeshita he will defend the KO-D Title on 24th September against another champion. Out came Ken Ohka with his Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title! Takeshita accepted the challenge and wanted Ohka to put his title on the line too in a unification match, one on one. Dino looked surprised. He never said Takeshita and Ohka would be in a singles match. It’s going to be a 3 Way Match with a third champion involved. Daisuke Sasaki entered the ring with his DDT Extreme Title. He wasn’t happy with the idea but if it means getting revenge on Takeshita for beating Endo, then so be it. With that decided, everyone left Takeshita alone in the ring to finish the show closing speech. Five years ago, 17 year old Takeshita had his debut match in Budokan Hall. Fast forward to today and 22 year old Takeshita is making DDT grow bigger in both mind and body!

It was a new song but the same old story for Shigehiro Irie. He just can’t beat HARASHIMA. Irie and Kazusada Higuchi came out to Irie’s new entrance music “T2” (“Tachimukau Ver.2”) by Kinniku Shojo Tai. He even had the support of the band’s main vocalist Kenji Otsuki sitting at ringside for the match. But HARASHIMA had Naomichi Marufuji on his team and Marufuji kept Higuchi at bay with their Chop Battles. Irie did what he could to put away HARASHIMA but nothing worked. Irie readied himself for one last Beast Bomber but was cut off by Marufuji. Irie was then pinned after the Shiranui from Marufuji followed by the Somato by HARASHIMA. As the new KO-D Tag Team Champions celebrated, Irie went over to Otsuki and cried for forgiveness. Higuchi also apologised to Irie but Irie wouldn’t let him take the blame.

HARASHIMA & Marufuji’s celebration was then cut short by Dino, who introduced himself to Marufuji. Dino said he wants to provide a dream match for the next Tag Title defence and it will involve the two wrestlers who best represent DDT. Himself and Sanshiro Takagi! Dino also wants Marufuji to experience the kind of match only DDT can provide. So on 20th September, HARASHIMA & Marufuji will defend the KO-D Tag Team Titles against Dino & Takagi inside the Miyagi Iron Works for a Factory Pro Wrestling Match! Marufuji was taken aback by the announcement and referred to the NOAH president Masayuki Uchida at ringside for his opinion. “No problem!”, Uchida said. Welcome to DDT, Marufuji.

Daisuke Sasaki and Akito fought in a crazy Hardcore Submission Hair Vs Hair Match for the DDT Extreme Title. Akito came out with new wrestling gear but focused all of his attention to the task at hand. Sasaki meanwhile lived it up by walking to the ring with two blonde haired foreign women for his entrance. The match became dangerous in between the submissions when a table, ladder and chairs were all brought into the ring. Akito used the chairs to attack Sasaki by the legs. Sasaki hit back with a major move, placing Akito sitting on a chair outside the ring then jumping off the ladder from inside the ring for the Super Diving Elbow! Back in the ring Sasaki laid Akito down inside the ladder and hit a chair-assisted Diving Elbow from the top rope. Akito returned fire by putting Sasaki through the table from the ladder. He put Sasaki in the Scorpion Lock but let it go when Mad Paulie jumped onto the apron for a distraction. Sasaki swung a chair at Akito but he ducked and Paulie took the shot instead. Akito tried to give Sasaki the Double Knee Buster but it was countered into a DDT onto the chair. Sasaki then found a guitar and smashed it over Akito’s head. Finally, Sasaki made Akito submit to La Mistica Cross Facelock with a chair wrapped around Akito’s head pulling back for extra damage.

Sasaki took joy from slowly cutting off pieces of Akito’s hair with clippers until Akito grabbed an electric shaver and shaved off the remaining hair himself.

Company power versus romantic freedom were on the line when Sanshiro Takagi and Danshoku Dino fought in a Weapons Rumble. If Dino won he would be given complete control of booking DDT shows. If Takagi won then Dino would have to go find a romantic partner and get married. The early weapons brought into the match included a barbed wire baseball bat, a vibrating massager also wrapped in barbed wire which Dino stuffed behind Takagi’s shorts, a gigantic marriage document which Takagi forced Dino to sign and Takagi’s Rolex watch which Dino smashed to pieces with the baseball bat. The next “weapon” turned out to be Kendo Kashin but he was immediately attacked by Mitsuo Momota with Chikara accompanying him. Their planned match at 6:30am never took place so DDT decided to begin the match here and now. It was called off when Dino and his friends assaulted the referee assigned to the Kashin Vs Momota match. Kashin promoted the next All Japan show in Sumo Hall to be held on 27th August and then left. Dino’s friends were then distracted by the appearance of the Macho 29 dance troupe so that got rid of them. Dino then had an old video of a drunk Takagi stripping naked during a fan event play over the arena screen. Takagi had a mental breakdown until his secret weapon appeared. It was Dino’s mother, Yaeko! She entered the ring and gave Dino the Lip Lock! Takagi then hit Dino with a Lariat and the Sit Down Himawari Bomb but Dino kicked out. Then it was time for Dino’s secret weapon, Takagi’s wife Kayoko Takagi! She hit a Moonsault on Takagi. The end finally came when Dino delivered the Lip Lock and the Danshoku Driver, a Gotch-Style variation for extra insult. Dino is now in charge of DDT!

Dino celebrated winning what must now be the most important match of his career. Takagi tried to convince Dino to go and get married anyway. Marriage can be nice, just look at him and Kayoko. After he said this Kayoko gave him the cold shoulder and left the ring. Takagi then changed his mind and said it’s probably alright for Dino to stay single for a little while longer. He also thanked Yaeko for appearing. She received cheers from the audience as she left the ring. Moving on to other business, Takagi asked Dino if he realises how much power he now holds in DDT. Dino said he was prepared otherwise he would never have asked for it. Takagi accepted the answer and promoted Dino into the DDT Producer. Takagi then announced he was going to retire but quickly admitted he was lying. Amon Tsurumi came in to congratulate Dino for becoming the Producer. With Takagi, Amon and Dino all working together DDT will become a more interesting place. Takagi then fired Tsurumi! DDT only needs two people to captain the ship so Tsurumi’s position as General Manager is no longer needed. Dino agreed and said in English “You are fired!” Tsurumi tried to complain but was pulled out of the ring by a bunch of DDT wrestlers and carried away from ringside.

The combined powers of Dick Togo, Yasu Urano and Antonio Honda telling his bedtime story were not enough to take the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles from Shuten-dōji. Honda was put away with the combo of Yukio Sakaguchi’s Right Knee Of God, Masahiro Takanashi’s Takatonic and KUDO’s Diving Double Knee Drop. The champions declared they will drink until the morning to celebrate. Sakaguchi also sent a message to Togo. If Togo wants a match anytime, Sakaguchi will be there to kill him!

The 4 Way Tag Team match turned into a free for all. Kaz Hayashi & Keisuke Ishii hit stereo Planchas onto Yankee Two Kenju. Then Mike Bailey & MAO jumped off of the same top corner together to hit Moonsaults onto everyone outside the ring. Bailey & MAO then singled out Soma Takao but couldn’t catch the guy. Takao rolled away from Bailey’s Shooting Star Double Knee Drop then avoided MAO’s Cannonball 450. Kotaro Suzuki then grabbed MAO and did Takao’s Endless Waltz for a few nearfalls. Takao then took over the Endless Waltz for some more nearfalls until he finally pinned down MAO long enough to get a three count. Suzuki revealed that he got permission from Takao before the match to use the move so it is now officially part of his moveset. Takao hopes he and Suzuki will tag together more in the future. Bailey & MAO also expressed a desire to team up more often in DDT. On a sidenote, Takao is now 9-0 at “PETER PAN” events.

Shunma Katsumata and Jiro Kuroshiro provided a handsome looking change of pace with their singles match. Katsumata made his entrance on a stage gondola with the rest of NωA throwing autographed balls into the audience. Kuroshio then spent the entirety of his entrance frolicking through the crowd. His big move of the match was a Lionsault out of the ring onto Katsumata standing on the ramp. Katsumata got a nearfall with the Firebird Splash and also used his own version of the Ikemen Clutch for a nearfall. But Kuroshio got the victory by locking in the real Ikemen Clutch for the three count. Katsumata and Kuroshio embraced after the match. Katsumata said he regrets not being able to grasp his big opportunity today but he has no hard feelings over the result. Kuroshio said he felt lucky to get the match today and he thanked DDT for giving him their support.

In order to win the brand new KO-D 10-Man Tag Team Titles, a special battle plan was necessary to succeed. Super Sasadango Machine had such a plan ready for his team. First he held his PowerPoint presentation, “Reasons Why We Cannot Stop Wrestling”. Short answers, it’s because wrestlers feel a sense of accomplishment when they win. But wrestling is mostly an individual competition and when you are not the champion it is not as fun. When Tag Team Titles are introduced it increases the variety of ingredients to make tastier dishes. So he approves of a 10-Man Tag Title being created. for his battle plan, Kazuki Hirata is the target. Sasadango wants the audience to applaud Hirata so much that he will become deliriously happy. Then LiLiCo can sneak in and pin him with a School Boy. The plan didn’t work and Hirata kicked out of the School Boy. Later, Joey Ryan overpowered almost the entire opposition with his dick strength, flipping everybody away except for LiLiCo. She held on, forced Ryan to grab her crotch and used her power to flip him over. Hirata came back in to dance to his cover of “TOKYO GO!” until Ken Ohka hit him with the Fire Spear to win the match. So the first champions are Makoto Oishi, LiLiCo, Lady Beard, Super Sasadango Machine & Ken Ohka! Sasadango said backstage that the team are open to challenges from anybody as long as they come to DDT.

DDT’s new big lad Yuki Ino was the focus in the opening match for the main show. His power overwhelmed Yuki Ueno and he also went toe to toe with Naomi Yoshimura. He had no problem teaming with Kouki Iwasaki while Ueno & Yoshimura had a moment of miscommunication that almost cost them the match. Ueno’s Dropkick hit Yoshimura by mistake and Ino capitalised with a Spear to Ueno and a Back Drop to Yoshimura. Ino went for another Spear but Yoshimura sut him off with a Lariat and pinned the new rookie with the Shonenba. Ueno was impressed by Ino’s strength but Yoshimura wasn’t. He doesn’t see what the big deal with Ino is and why he was given the spotlight.

The Tokyo Joshi Pro GM Tetsuya Koda has the face the wrath of his entire roster because he had to enter their Battle Royal as the defending Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion. He tried to act tough but was easily beaten up by Cherry. When Nodoka-oneesan came out and Cherry fought her, Koda backed off to the corner and tried to stay out of the way. That backfired when Nonoko was thrown into the corner and she squashed him. Nodoka-oneesan then pinned Koda to become the champion. Her reign was ended by Mizuki with the Cutie Special. Mizuki held on to the belt until she was in the final two with Yuu. Fifteen years ago when Yuu was a kid, she tried to win the title as part of a fan contest and failed. But today, Yuu accomplished her goal and tapped out Mizuki to become the Iron Man Champion!

The All DNA team were victorious in the pre-show 8-Man Tag. The veterans Tomomitsu Matsunaga and Hoshitango came close to winning it for their side but their pins kept getting cut off. Rekka, Diego & Daiki Shimomura wiped out the opposition with Planchas then Mizuki Watase pinned Masato Kamino with the Back Drop.

When the doors opened at 2:00pm that afternoon, the first match of the day began. Gota Ihashi was put into a special 5-match Gauntlet series to be held all around the building. Plus he would be defending the King Of Dark Title so there he had many opportunities ahead to pass the cursed title to someone else. In fact he did it immediately outside Sumo Hall to his first opponent Dai Suzuki. Ihashi pinned Suzuki in 36 seconds and Suzuki rolled down the stairway with the title belt. Even though Ihashi is now free from dark match hell, he still had to complete his series so he move into a restroom for match number two against Gorgeous Matsuno. They fought over to a balcony where Matsuno used a tarp rope to attempt the Gorgeous Superstar Elbow. That obviously didn’t work and Ihashi leapt on top of him for the three count. Ihashi had to go down to the lobby and interrupt a DAMNATION autograph session for Match #3 against Mad Paulie. They moved over to the ring where Ihashi ran the length of ringside to do a Lariat. Paulie countered it with a Lou Thesz Press, got the three count and went back to the autograph table. An exhausted Ihashi looked around the halls for his first of two mystery opponents and found Rocky Kawamura. He put on a pair of boxing gloves and sparred with Kawamura until he got knocked out and pinned. Possibly dazed and confused or just by being a pervert, Ihashi found the women’s locker room and entered it. Saki Akai and Cherry ran out screaming but one person walked out of the shower and stayed. It was Lingerie Muto! He attacked Ihashi with shampoo, gave him a Dragon Screw and hit the Shining Wizard to end the match. Ihashi finishes the series with two wins and three losses.

During the ending credits, Akito sadly showed off his new bald head, Takagi was slapped down by Kayoko then their two daughters did standing Moonsaults onto him and Amon Tsurumi was seen pleading for his job back.

Suwama, Ultimo Dragon, Hideki Suzuki and Abdullah Kobayashi will all compete at the 22nd October show in Korakuen Hall. This is the same event where the Top 20 wrestlers in the Dramatic General Election will be booked.

One of the trends DDT is following as part of its 20th Anniversary is to return to venues that housed their events as they grew. One of the venues is Shibuya Club ATOM where DDT will have a special nostalgia show on 13th September. Three matches are announced so far. Takeshita, Akito & Poison Sawada JULIE take on NωA. Takagi, Dino, Muscle Sakai and Ohka will fight in a 4 Way Match. Lastly, Shuten-dōji face HERO!, MIKAMI & Tanomusaku Toba.

joshi17-lastride

For the second year in a row Tokyo Joshi Pro was in Korakuen Hall for a big show held on 4th January. One year ago, Yuu had her debut pro wrestling match with the group. Today she was defending the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Championship in the main event. Her opponent Syoko Nakajima was part of last year’s main event too fighting to be the first champion. Unfortunately for her she was defeated again. Yuu unexpectedly used a Last Ride Power Bomb, in tribute to the late Koichiro Kimura apparently, putting Nakajima away. Yuu is looking forward to defending the title many more times and she didn’t have to wait long for a new challenger to appear. Reika Saiki approached her in the ring to congratulate Yuu. Saiki called herself muscular, healthy and motivated so how about a title shot? Yuu accepted the challenge. She’s defending the belt but she’s going to treat the championship like it is hers to win!

joshi17-akai-martha

Fresh back from Paris, Saki Akai returned to Tokyo Joshi and this time she was accompanied by her faithful maid Martha. Miyu Yamashita did the polite thing and greeted Martha but it was clear she didn’t trust her. She was proven right to do so when Martha distracted the referee while Akai was in a Camel Clutch. Yamashita broke it to go after Martha but when she turned back Akai was there to do a Big Boot. Yamashita ducked and Martha took the boot to the face instead. Yamashita hit the Attitude Adjustment but only got a two count. Akai dodged the Crash Rabbit Heat and got the pin with the Two Step Face Kick. Akai played it off like the result was no big deal. She offered to help lift Yamashita back up to her feet but then she kicked her again. She told Tetsuya Koda to contact her later about appearing in a match on 21st January. She would like to team up with Martha for that match so Koda better go looking for their opponents.

joshi17-clown-candice

Mil Clown defeated the returning Candice LeRae, avenging her twin sister’s loss to the Canadian one year ago. At one point LeRae fought dirty by pushing Daisuke Kiso into the ropes to knock Clown off of the top turnbuckle. However Clown recovered and caught LeRae in the Mil Clutch α for the flash pin.

joshi17-towerbridge

Cheer♡1 and LinQ performed together after Match #2 but two of their members wrestled each other later in the show. Itoh Maki kicked Reika Saiki as often as she could but a Headbutt from Saiki slowed her down. Maki kept trying to fight back until she was locked into the Tower Bridge and had to submit. Maki was happy to wrestle in Korakuen Hall despite only having her debut match three weeks ago. She hopes pro wrestling will bring in more fans over to her idol career with LinQ. The group is going to reshuffle its members in June and she doesn’t want to get fired!

joshi17-wives

Love was in the air for Match #3. Joey Ryan & Laura James kissed each other and wished everyone a happy new year during their entrance. Then Inoue Mic & Ai Shimizu did the same. Ryan was there to be the referee and ring announcer Mic introduced Shimizu as his “beloved and unbelievably cute wife”. Their opponents Azusa Takigawa & Nonoko came armed with the premium New Year issue of Zexy Magazine. Ryan was biased towards his wife’s team but Nonoko did her best to seduce him during the match. When Takigawa was ready to use her magazine as a weapon both husbands ran to protect their wives. During the confusion Takigawa accidentally knocked out Nonoko with the magazine, Ryan put his lollipop into Takigawa’s mouth and Shimizu pinned her with the Fishergirl Suplex.

joshi17-momochi

Match #2 was changed from a Tag Team bout to a 3 Way Match when Akane Miura caught the flu and was taken off the show. The match also served as ring announcer Minami Momochi’s graduation from Tokyo Joshi. She received streamers from the crowd during the announcements. She also got involved in the match, helping Hyper Misao fight the demonic Maho Kurone. Momochi gave Kurone a Neckbreaker Drop and Misao then hit the I Am A Hero. However Rika Tatsumi took over the match and won when she put Kurone in the Dragon Sleeper.

joshi17-nodoka-cherry

Before Nodoka-oneesan took on her mentor Cherry in the opener, she invited Momochi to participate in Ping Pong Exercises with her one more time. When that was done Cherry came down but she did not want to go through the pre-match formalities. After the match though she embraced Nodoka and supported her for putting up a good fight.
