6. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo defeated Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura when Ishikawa pinned Yoshimura with the Fire Thunder (17:08).
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) defeated Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi when Sasaki submitted Kuroshio with the Crossover Face Lock (17:22).
*V6 for DAMNATION.
8. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) defeated Shinya Aoki by TKO with the Walls Of Takeshita (16:45).
*V2 for Konosuke Takeshita.

Just like in their last singles match, Konosuke Takeshita decided to wrestle barefoot against Shinya Aoki. Takeshita went for the Walls Of Takeshita but Aoki positioned himself into a Triangle Choke. Takeshita powered out of the move by lifting up and slamming down Aoki. He then reapplied the Walls Of Takeshita and kept the pressure until Aoki went unresponsive. Yukinori Matsui stopped the match and declared Takeshita the winner.

Takeshita expressed his sincere gratitude to Aoki after the match. He was then told that the next KO-D Openweight Title defence will be at Sumo Hall on 3rd November. No challenger was decided yet so Takeshita had an idea. Since “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!” is bringing together all of the DDT brands, he wants to find out who the absolute best wrestler in DDT is. That means the KO-D Champion and the DDT Extreme Champion should face off in a double title match! Hisaya Imabayashi reminded him that the current Extreme Champion Jiro Kuroshio is defending the title against HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo in a 3 Way Match on 29th September. They confirmed that the winner and champion coming out of that match will face Takeshita in Sumo Hall.

Sadly for Kuroshio he didn’t add the KO-D Tag Team Titles to his possessions. He and his “brother” Kazusada Higuchi were defeated by DAMNATION. Higuchi got rid of Soma Takao and left Ikemen to seal the deal. Kuroshio blocked Daisuke Sasaki’s La Mistica Cross Facelock and turned it into a Tombstone Piledriver. However Ikemen’s Moonsault ended badly when Sasaki caught him and applied the Crossover Face Lock for the submission win. Akito came out and challenged DAMNATION for the Tag Titles on 29th September. His partner is the “TV Star” Yuki Iino! He has been away from wrestling the last few months working on a TV drama called No Side Game.

Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura are now called Nautilus. The team impressed Shuji Ishikawa, he called them amazing talents. He also likes tagging with Tetsuya Endo and suggested the idea of the two of them facing off against Sasaki & Takao sometime.

The Recycling Death Match featured plenty of items from DDT’s history. A lot of it was trash left around in storage but some of the items do have some history to them. There was the dojo’s vacuum cleaner from 2015, an office heater from 2016, plastic cases from this year, the bear traps from the 2018 Super Sasadango Machine Vs Jiro Kuroshio match, 200 empty beer cans that they never threw out after one of this year’s earlier Beer Garden shows, Mecha Mummy’s weapons from 2006 and finally a big electric signboard T that was part of a stage prop from DDT’s first ever Sumo Hall show back in 2009. The last one still works. Sanshiro Takagi threw Ken Ohka onto the T with the Spicolli Driver then pinned him with the Himawari Bomb through a plastic case. Takagi and Ohka agreed to repair the T and use it at next year’s Saitama Super Arena show.

The pairing of Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto acted exactly how we thought they would. They got their hands all over Akito & Shunma Katsumata until Yukinori Matsui called off the match.

MAO brought along the two glass globes he has earned so far from the Tenkaichi Jr. tournament in ZERO1. He and HARASHIMA defeated Jun Masaoka & Kouhei Kinoshita. HARASHIMA commiserated his opponents afterwards.

Yuni was able to pin Puma King with a Hurricanrana because all of the other wrestlers in the Battle Royal piled on top of them. Yuni was declared the new Iron Man Heavymetalweight Champion but Kazuki Hirata quickly pinned him with the Egoist Driver to win the belt. Saki Akai won it next then Asuka pinned her with the ASUKA FANTASY to win both the title and the Battle Royal itself. Hirata got the belt back after the match with a School Boy then Puma King got the last title switch with the Puma Kingdom.

The debuting Cody Hall showed his strength by throwing around Yukio Sakaguchi, Lariating Yukio Naya and pinning Mizuki Watase with the Thunder Buster.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE MOUNTAIN TOP 2019 ~I WILL NOT LOSE TO ANYONE~” Results

September 1, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE MOUNTAIN TOP 2019 ~I WILL NOT LOSE TO ANYONE~”, 01/09/2019
Osaka Edion Arena #2
417 Fans

1. Mirai Maiumi defeated Suzume with a Lariat (5:28).
2. Himawari Unagi & YUMI defeated Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu when Unagi submitted Harajuku with the Big Fuhen Hold (9:04).
3. Miyu Yamashita & Miu Watanabe defeated Gisele Shaw & Yuki Kamifuku when Yamashita pinned Kamifuku with the Attitude Adjustment (12:08).
4. Yuna Manase, Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Natsumi Maki, Hikari Noa & Raku when Manase pinned Maki with a Lariat (10:13).
5. Su Yung defeated Maki Itoh with the Panic Switch (10:11).
6. Sakisama, Misao & Martha (w/ Yukio Saint Laurent) defeated Yuka Sakazaki, Rika Tatsumi & Antonio Honda when Misao pinned Tatsumi with the Vanitas (15:16).
7. Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) defeated Mizuki with the Diving Senton (16:44).
*V2 for Shoko Nakajima.

For the second year in a row the Tokyo Princess Cup winner has failed to win their Princess Title challenge. The champion Shoko Nakajima appeared with the original TOKYO Princess Title belt and was given the new 2nd Gen Princess Title belt after defeating Mizuki. The match took a lot out of the wrestlers. Nakajima couldn’t hold her pinning posture after hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. She was able to keep control and pinned Mizuki with the Diving Senton. In her backstage interview, Mizuki admitted that she is not the kind of person who wants to be a main character yet this past summer she overcame many challenges. So she was in fact motivated to become the main character. It was a hard summer for her but she still had fun.

When Nakajima received the new belt she said it felt like she just won a championship for the first time again. She wants to continue winning matches so she can get familiar with holding the belt. Misao came out and congratulated Nakajima, then gave her condolences because today will be the last time Nakajima successfully defends the title. Misao already has the Princess Tag Titles but that is not enough to satisfy her. Nakajima accepted her challenge. She ended the show by saying Osaka has been invaded by the Big Kaiju. She next wants to invade all of Japan!

The entire active members of NEO Biishiki-gun were victorious over the trio of Yuka Sakazaki, Rika Tatsumi & Antonio Honda. The maid Martha used her mop as a weapon and Yukio Saint Laurent used his injections to knock out Honda & Sakazaki. Tatsumi continued to fight on her own but Misao pinned her with the Vanitas. Sakisama credited her presence in Osaka as the reason why the Hanshin Tigers won their baseball game today.

Gotta give it to Maki Itoh, she was just as determined to scare Su Yung with her screams as Yung was trying to scare her. Their screams together were enough to scare away Daisuke Kiso. Yung blinded Itoh with Red Mist but Itoh tried to fight on by applying a Sleeper Hold. Yung countered it by lifting Itoh onto her shoulders to do the Panic Switch for the win.

After last week’s career high, Natsumi Maki was sent crashing back down to Earth when Yuna Manase pinned her in a trios match. Manase used a Lariat to counter the Backlash. They talked about their history together and how they are like sisters. That led to Manase challenging Maki for the International Princess Title. Maki accepted and said she won a championship within four years of wrestling while Manase hasn’t won any title in seven.

Momoiro Sparkling bounced back from their failed Princess Tag Titles match last week by beating Gisele Shaw & Yuki Kamifuku. Shaw is still looking for a way to avenge her defeat in England to Miyu Yamashita.

The hometown hero Himawari Unagi picked up the win in her tag match.

Mirai Maiumi won her first singles match by beating the other rookie Suzume. Maiumi entered the ring with a Japanese fishing flag with a good fortune written on it. She explained that she grew up near the ocean and her ring name also contains the kanji for “Sea” (海 / umi). She wants to express the feeling of the ocean when she wrestles.

The Recycling Death Match will involve weapons and items used in previous DDT and Ganbare☆Wrestling matches that were just left lying around in storage afterwards. An example was used by Sanshiro Takagi when he kept a chair he used at the TAKAYAMANIA show from earlier this week. Ohka’s example is the jacket and ten gallon hat he wore during his absence from Ganpro shows last year.

Cody Hall is the mystery wrestler in the opener. He met Antonio Honda and got along with him because the Gongitsune hand gesture resembles the Wolfpac gesture that Cody’s dad Scott Hall is known for.

The campsite match this year also serves as a preview for “ULTIMATE PARTY 2019!”. Every team represents a different brand. DDT has HARASHIMA, Honda & Kazusada Higuchi on one team and Takeshita, MAO & Ueno on another. BASARA is sending Isami Kodaka, FUMA & SAGAT rather than wrestlers from just one unit. Last but not least Tokyo Joshi Pro has the newly formed Cat’s Pye squad taking part.

Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

BASARA “BASARA 106 ~BANQUET~”, 24/09/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Union MAX Title: Ryuichi Sekine (c) Vs SAGAT

SAGAT pinned and eliminated Ryuichi Sekine at this week’s Shinkiba show. That is enough of a claim for him to get the next Union MAX Title shot. SAGAT has challenged for the title once before, losing to the previous champion Ryota Nakatsu last November.

DDT “WHO’S GONNA TOP 2019”, 29/09/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. DDT Extreme Title – 3 Way Match: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs HARASHIMA Vs Tetsuya Endo

The grudge between HARASHIMA and Tetsuya Endo has gotten both of them a title match. They wanted the next shot at the DDT Extreme Title but got in each other’s way. Jiro Kuroshio doesn’t want to wait for a single challenger to be determined so he decided to face both of them at the same time.

BOYZ “(BRAND NEW) BOYZ 1 -DDT SPECIAL EDITION-”, 20/10/2019
Tokyo Belle Epoque Beauty School 2nd School Hall

1. Plump BOYZ: Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Kouki Iwasaki
2. MAO UK Expedition BOYZ Send Off Match: Konosuke Takeshita Vs MAO
3. Yukihero Pro Wrestling Collaboration Match: Shunma Katsumata & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazuki Hirata & Hiroshi Yamato

The BOYZ brand is getting a fresh start under Akito’s management. Wrestlers booked on the first show will also be appearing at the SHIBUYA FASHION AWARD-BE Vint-Age 2019 festival the same day to promote a fashion brand called Yukihero Pro Wrestling. The main event will feature the wrestlers involved wearing costumes from that clothing line.

Akito doesn’t remember ever seeing MAO wrestle Takeshita in a singles match so he decided to book it before MAO’s excursion. Kouki Iwasaki is being booked on BOYZ because Akito wants to see him interact with DDT wrestlers more often. Higuchi and Yuki Iino are also being booked despite their alliance to the YaroZ brand. Akito believes there are women at these shows who find those kind of men attractive too. Akito plans to present them in a way that makes them more suitable for the BOYZ brand. DAMNATION wrestlers are disallowed except for Nobuhiro Shimatani because he works under Akito at the Drop Kick Bar.

81 wrestlers in total have been booked for the show and each promotion’s main championship will be defended in their own matches.

Kenny Omega returns to wrestle in DDT after a five year absence. A lot has changed since then but for now the people he wanted in his match are his biggest rival (Honda), his first tag partner (Riho, not “him”) and the wrestler who possibly might have caught his attention the most (Miyu Yamashita). Will there be more coming out of this? Wouldn’t be a party without surprises, would it?

Suzume became a fan of Tokyo Joshi Pro when one of her friends invited her along to see a show. She moved to Tokyo to join the company and has been training for around 7 months. There’s no mention of any athletic background in her profile but she put illustrations down as her special skill. So at least we know she’ll become a wrestler who can draw (oh come on you knew I would make that joke).

The team of Miyu Yamashita & Miu Watanabe are now called Momoiro Sparkling.

The original belt had been used since the championship’s debut back in January 2016. The new belt is currently being made overseas so all we have to look at for the moment is the concept design above.

3. Keiko Takeshita International Friendly Match – Keiko Beyond The Heart: Yumehito Imanari Vs Konosuke Takeshita
4. Pocchaminator Mana Connor Chronicles: Mana Connor (Yuna Manase) Vs Pocchaminator (P-800)

Yumehito Imanari is promising an “Innovative Invention Experiment” on the show called πMAX Digital Theater. Fans in attendance will be wearing special glasses to watch an extra large screen that is so immersive you will feel like you are inside a womb again. He is using this technology to screen one of Yuna Manase’s DVDs. Those who see it will feel like they are being wrapped around in Manase’s motherhood.

Manase doesn’t get what Imanari is trying to do, she is only focusing on her match. And er… at least I think it is a match. The set up is the main event features the Pocchaminator, a cyborg from the year 2050 that has traveled back in time to kill people who have a BMI value above a certain level on behalf of major advertising agencies. The resistance is led by one person. Not Yuna Manase but Mana Connor! If she cannot stop the P-800 then there is no future for Pocchari Joshi Pro!

Konosuke Takeshita’s mother Keiko is a special ambassador on the show. She will oversee the match between Imanari and her son. Imanari hopes that Keiko will show as much love for him as she does for her own son.

I thought this show was just supposed to be a Trainspotting parody…

4. Sakigake!! Iron Family Tag Match To Reconfirm Their Bonds: FUMA & Yusuke Kubo Vs Trans-Am ★ Hiroshi & SAGAT
5. Union MAX Title: Ryuichi Sekine (c) Vs Isami Kodaka

Things are a little awkward in the Iron Family now that FUMA has sided with Dove Pro for the summer series against BASARA. His relationship with Yusuke Kubo in particular looks like it could get strained. A few of the unit members have put together a match between themselves in order to get FUMA & Kubo on the same page again.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TJPW FAN CLUB BOX OFFICE – PURE TOKYO JOSHI PRO WRESTLING 3”, 12/08/2019
Saitama Warabi Wrestle Battlehouse

0. Exhibition Match: Izumi Vs X

There is always something going on at these fan club events that results in talent no-shows. At least this time we were told in advance that Miu Watanabe & Raku are unavailable. Replacing them are the Up Up Warriors! The team is made up of Warrior Miu & Warrior Raku.

4. Nagoya Specialty! Special 6-Man Tag Match: Daisuke Sasaki, Soma Takao & Tetsuya Endo Vs HARASHIMA, Kazuki Hirata & Kazusada Higuchi

I thought the DERA Nagoya Pro wrestler was just called Grand Passion Mask #4. Turns out his full name is The Intelligence Sensational Grand Passion Mask #4.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION MEMORIES 2019”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. 4 Way Tag Match: Mad Paulie & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Masahiro Takanashi & Yukio Naya Vs Mizuki Watase & Naomi Yoshimura
2. Calbee & Frito Lay Collaboration Match ~Love And Potato Snacks Save The Earth~: King Potato Chips & Dragon Potato Mask Vs Kazuki Hirata & Hiroshi Yamato

7. Konosuke Takeshita’s Summer Measures Against Shinya Aoki: Konosuke Takeshita, Yukio Sakaguchi, Sanshiro Takagi & Antonio Honda Vs Danshoku Dieno, Super Sasadango Machine, MAO & Santino Marella
8. DDT Extreme Title: Jiro Kuroshio (c) Vs Daisuke Sasaki

Daisuke Sasaki was so drunk by the end of Beer Garden week that he has no memory of how he got a DDT Extreme Title match with Jiro Kuroshio. He remembers eating watermelon and also Kuroshio’s wonderful hair but that’s it. Kuroshio says this is a match that nobody should laugh at. In fact Kuroshio Vs Sasaki is a match he thinks fans want to see. He also didn’t know that he gets to make the stipulation. So he hasn’t thought of one yet but promises it will be something serious.

So Konosuke Takeshita’s summer challenge before Shinya Aoki is an 8-Man Tag with Santino Marella involved. Didn’t see that coming.

DDT “OSAKA OCTOPUS 2019”, 01/09/2019
Osaka Edion Arena #2

1. DD Army Vs ALL OUT!: Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata
2. O-40 Title: Sanshiro Takagi (c) Vs Ken Ohka
3. DAMNATION Vs DISASTER BOX!: Shuji Ishikawa & Tetsuya Endo Vs Yuki Ueno & Naomi Yoshimura
4. KO-D Tag Team Titles: Daisuke Sasaki & Soma Takao (c) Vs Jiro Kuroshio & Kazusada Higuchi
5. KO-D Openweight Title: Konosuke Takeshita (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

Kuroshio is acting like he is Kazusada Higuchi’s little brother so they can challenge for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Higuchi is happy to go along with it and promises to win the belt for their family. They’re not related by blood but if they win then it is proof that they are real brothers. If they do become the champions Kuroshio wants to defend the belts against The Brahman Brothers. In response to this, Sasaki is making fun of the situation by saying he is Higuchi’s dad. Higuchi points out that Sasaki is only three years older than him. Sasaki fired back by saying he was only three years old when he was with Higuchi’s mother. Sasaki was still drunk when he said this but how much of that is an excuse, I don’t know. Kuroshio made the argument even more confusing by saying his and Kazusada’s father is a 56 year old man named Jiro Higuchi.

Yay, Shuji Ishikawa is back again!

Who’s idea was it to team up Danshoku Dieno & Maku Donaruto!?!

Some idols have agreed to take part. Natsume Misaki is from chuLa, Momomi Wagatsuma is from Hakoiri♡Musume, Aika Sawaguchi is from dela and Rise Shiokawa is from Transfer Girls*.

Yukio Naya has demanded to be a part of the Battle Royal. According to Makoto Oishi, Naya is a big idol fan and visits the Tokyo Idol Festival every year. No matter what question Naya gets asked lately, his answer is “Please put me in TIF!”

Sanshiro Takagi is unable to compete because of his arm injury. But he will be at the Battle Royal to accompany the idols taking part in the match.

6. Summer Vacation Special Plan, I’m Excited About Summer Tokyo Joshi Festival 2019 “Chu! Natsu Party Death Match”: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki Vs Nodoka Tenma & Mina Shirakawa

Rika Tatsumi has plenty of experience handling paranormal wrestlers so she is the perfect opponent for Demonio Uno.**

A match between Miyu Yamashita and Miu Watanabe is supposedly going to make them a better team before they challenge for the Princess Tag Team Titles.

BASARA “BASARA 103 ~BURNING SWORD~”, 11/08/2019
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Union MAX Title: Ryuichi Sekine (c) Vs Isami Kodaka

Isami Kodaka gets his Union MAX Title match that he earned for winning the Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~. He is extra motivated to win so he can become a triple crown champion. He currently holds the BJW Death Match Title and the UWA World 6-Man Tag Team Titles. That last one he shares with the MAX Champ Ryuichi Sekine so Sekine is also one belt away from becoming a triple champion himself.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2019 ~STRONGER THAN ANYONE!~”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Izumi Debut Match: Shoko Nakajima & Riho Vs Mirai Maiumi & Izumi

4. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Misao (c) Vs Miyu Yamashita & Miu Watanabe
5. International Princess Title – 1st Champion Decision Battle: Natsumi Maki Vs Gisele Shaw

Su Yung isn’t taking it easy for her Tokyo Joshi Pro return. She is already gunning after one of the big names in Yuka Sakazaki.

Riho is still a freelancer, for now at least. Let’s not worry about it.

DDT “SUMMER VACATION MEMORIES 2019”, 25/08/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Calbee & Frito Lay Collaboration Match ~Love And Potato Snacks Save The Earth~: King Potato Chips & Dragon Potato Mask Vs Kazuki Hirata & Hiroshi Yamato
2. Saki & Su Yung Vs Asuka & Makoto
3. Summer Jumbo Special Two Big Singles Match: Puma King Vs Yuki Ueno
4. Summer Jumbo Special Two Big Singles Match: Shinya Aoki Vs Makoto Oishi
5. Konosuke Takeshita’s Summer Measures Against Shinya Aoki: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Danshoku Dieno Army Elite Members

Konosuke Takeshita found out that Danshoku Dieno is putting him through a series of high level opponents in order to prepare for his match with Shinya Aoki. Takeshita doesn’t know what to expect out of this.

The plan was to have Saki Akai team with Su Yung but Akai has the day off and will not be changing her plans. Instead Akai has made DDT book a distant non-blood relative of hers simply named Saki. Her name is written as “娑鬼” which can be translated to “Demon”. Akai claim the only times they have met in person were when they were children. Even then her memory of what Saki looks like is blurry. Akai drew a picture of what she thinks Saki looks like now. She assures to everyone that Saki is not part of the UMA Corps (Akai isn’t liked by them) but she is not certain if she is a human or a demon. Akai used her parents to contact Saki in the Kyoto mountains to set up this match with Yung against Asuka & Makoto.

Puma King is back in DDT for the first time since January.

This show will feature the DDT debut of Santino Marella! It will be his first appearance in DDT but he is a former Iron Man Champion.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE MOUNTAIN TOP 2019 ~I WILL NOT LOSE TO ANYONE~”, 01/09/2019

2. Maki Itoh Vs Su Yung
3. Sakisama, Misao & Martha Vs Yuka Sakazaki, Rika Tatsumi & X
4. Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) Vs Mizuki

A NEO Biishiki-gun reunion is on the cards but one person isn’t looking forward to it. Tatsumi still believes that the child maid Martha is really an old man who drinks a lot. A trios match has been put together and Tatsumi is gathering her team. She already has Sakazaki on her side and she promises a super special person will be joining them.

Gisele Shaw will be on the show.

*No footnote. That’s just how the idol unit name is spelled.

**Oh wait, this is being posted on the one year anniversary of Maho Kurone leaving Tokyo Joshi Pro. There’s your footnote.
