*V2 for Miyu Yamashita.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Sakisama

The contract for the Princess Of Princess Title match was signed on Saturday before the Narimasu Act Hall show. Miyu Yamashita expressed disappointment over failing to win the Princess Tag Team Titles with Maki Itoh last week. She’s going to show Sakisama what she can really do at their match. Sakisama isn’t used to being called a challenger. She heard about Yamashita’s dream of becoming a double champion but she couldn’t pull it off. If Yamashita couldn’t make her dream come true then Sakisama promises to make it come true on her behalf.

The two teams for the main event met for a press conference today and it turned into an argument between Yuji Okabayashi and Shunma Katsumtata. They kept shouting “Pissari!” and “NeppoWER!!” back and forth to each other throughout the meeting. HARASHIMA and Konosuke Takeshita are keeping their eyes on the prize. Takeshita said his recent form shows he is returning to the centre of DDT. He doesn’t want his momentum to stop and would like to be KO-D Tag Team Champions with Katsumata. Winning the belts in Osaka too would be a miracle for them. HARASHIMA is aware that it’s been a long time since he was focused on the Tag Titles. He looks forward to fighting against the Ultimate Tag League winners.

7. King Of DDT 2021 – Final: X Vs X

The King Of DDT final four have given their thoughts going into the final rounds. Daisuke Sasaki thinks he is now the strongest wrestler after beating both the DDT UNIVERSAL Champion and KO-D Openweight Champion in the first two rounds. However whenever he sees Takeshita he still feels the pain in the rib he broke from their D-Ou Grand Prix match last November. It’s time for revenge. But if he wins and faces Yuji Hino in the final, he will accept his fate and lose to Hino in 5 seconds. He’ll get the prize money anyway. Takeshita argues that Sasaki only beat the champions because he used Low Blows in those matches. He thinks he can beat him if he dodges those kind of attacks. Hino admits the tournament has been hard and he’s been fighting some big names throughout. If Takeshita does beat Sasaki then Hino promises to break his ribs in the final so Sasaki will get his revenge. Kazusada Higuchi is determined to advance past the semi-final for the first time. He won’t think about the final until he gets there.

A team of Olympians in one form or another are going after the KO-D 8-Man Tag Team Titles together. Joining Yoshiaki Yatsu is Akito, Hiroshi Yamato & Keigo Nakamura. All three of them asked to join by pointing to their amateur wrestling experience in the Junior Olympics. Akito finished 2nd in his 2004 class, Yamato finished 3rd in his 2002 class and Nakamura… was eliminated in the first round at the 2016 competition.

Yesterday Shinjiro Otani confirmed he will regularly participate in Ganbare☆Pro events beginning on 27th June. Otani’s priority is still with ZERO1 but when his schedule allows it, he will wrestle in Ganpro too. At first Otani didn’t understand why his Hot Japan tag team partner Yumehito Imanari asked him to come help Ganpro. He couldn’t figure out why Ganpro needed him. But when he had a match with Shu Sakurai last week he finally understood. He thought Ganpro wrestlers were only concerned with entertaining their audience but found out they also have the will to fight. So Ganpro does need Otani and he is happy to help. Once Imanari got permission from CyberFight to increase Ganpro’s budget for Otani’s pay the deal was made. Hot Japan are currently the NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Champions and they’re looking to defend it on a Ganpro show.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “STAND PROUD”, 26/06/2021
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Sakisama

This is what I was warning about on Wednesday. Sakisama chokes out Miyu Yamashita and gets her first ever shot at the Princess Of Princess Title. Championships are small change for a lady like Sakisama which is why she has never wanted the Princess Title. She already has so many accomplishments to her name that a prize like that does not interest her. What’s motivating her here is the chance to humiliate Yamashita more than she ever has done before. The champion has never beaten Sakisama in singles matches or directly in tag matches. Sakisama’s been a thorn in Yamashita’s side going back to 2015 (I’m retconning a name for kayfabe reasons to reach back that far but don’t worry about it).

Yuki Arai will be on the show.

6. I Really Like It! Osaka Specialty Special Single Match: Jun Akiyama Vs Yusuke Okada
7. KO-D Tag Team Titles: HARASHIMA & Yuji Okabayashi (c) Vs Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata

Osaka gets a special mentor versus student match. Yusuke Okada always stays close to Jun Akiyama even though he is not a part of Junretsu. Getting a match in his hometown against Akiyama means a lot to Okada.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK” Results

June 17, 2021

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “ADDITIONAL ATTACK”, 17/06/2021
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
474 Fans

1. Nodoka Tenma, Yuki Aino, Raku & Pom Harajuku defeated Suzume, Haruna Neko, Moka Miyamoto & Arisu Endo when Raku pinned Endo with the Doctor Yellow (12:05).
2. Shoko Nakajima defeated Kaya Toribami with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (7:47).
3. Yuki Kamifuku & Nao Kakuta defeated Miu Watanabe & Mahiro Kiryu when Kamifuku pinned Kiryu with the Famouser (11:11).
4. Mirai Maiumi defeated Yuki Arai with the Miramare (12:41).
5. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki defeated Rika Tatsumi & Hyper Misao when Sakazaki pinned Misao with the Magical Girl Niwatori Yaro (11:49).
6. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) defeated Marika Kobashi with the Blizzard Suplex (11:13).
*V1 for Hikari Noa.
7. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Mei Saint-Michel (c) defeated Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh by TKO when Sakisama used the Versailles Foot Choke on Yamashita (19:09).
*V2 for NEO Biishiki-gun.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

*Keiji Muto fails in V3. Naomichi Marufuji becomes the 35th GHC Heavyweight Champion!

The big supershow came and went without a hitch! DDT, NOAH, Tokyo Joshi Pro and Ganbare☆Pro all worked together to offer their best effort at Saitama Super Arena in front of 4,800 fans. When the three main events were done the three main champions of DDT, NOAH & TJPW entered the ring to thank the fans for coming to see them. Naomichi Marufuji said the CyberFight promotions will energize everyone with the power of pro wrestling. Jun Akiyama thanked everyone for attending even in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. He also thanked the fans watching on WRESTLE UNIVERSE. Last but not least Miyu Yamashita pointed out this was the largest crowd TJPW has performed in front of. She is certain that many people saw TJPW for the first time today and will be happy if any of them will stick around to see more. The entire cast of wrestlers gathered together on the stage for a massive group photo to close out the show.

Only one title changed hands out of the three main event championship matches. On the NOAH side, Marufuji won the GHC Heavyweight Title from Keiji Muto in what was called a “Genius Showdown”. Muto pulled out all the stops to try and win, going far enough to pull out the Moonsault that he retired three years ago! Just as shocking was Marufuji kicking out of the pin. He then got on the attack and unleashed all of his kicking and knee strikes on the champion. Muto tried to block what he could but he fell to the Tiger King Zero and the title now belongs to Marufuji.

DDT’s main event saw Akiyama choke out HARASHIMA to retain the KO-D Openweight Title. Akiyama entered the ring carrying the giant hammer commonly seen in DDT’s hardcore matches as a sign of loyalty to the company. HARASHIMA took the big risk of doing the Swan Dive Somato but Akiyama rolled out of the way. The champion then struck HARASHIMA with a Knee Kick and then dropped him with the Wrist Clutch Exploder. For weeks the Front Neck Lock was the finishing move used by both wrestlers so it was only fitting for Akiyama to sink it in on his opponent until the referee called for the bell. Backstage Akiyama said he has now defeated all of DDT’s icons. Next in line for him is whoever wins King Of DDT. If Akiyama wins the tournament then he promises to nominate Sanshiro Takagi so they can see which of them in their 50s is stronger.

Over at TJPW, Yamashita scored her first Princess Of Princess Title defence by beating Yuka Sakazaki. The match meant a lot to both wrestlers and they brought out their big moves. Sakazaki attempted the Magical Girl 450 Splash but missed, Yamashita hit the Skull Kick but was too tired to go for the pin allowing Sakazaki enough recovery time to reach for a rope break when she was pinned. Yamashita feigned a Crash Rabbit Heat to make Sakazaki flinch, then redirected herself to hit the move from another angle. With her opponent’s defence down, Yamashita hit the move proper for the victory. Yamashita tried to communicate with Sakazaki after the match but got a big slap across the face instead. Sakazaki stormed off while Yamashita celebrated with her title. Backstage Yamashita said she wants TJPW to push even further and aim for their own event at Sumo Hall.

The big DDT Vs NOAH match of the show provided the perfect storm to show two wrestlers going in opposite directions. DDT’s Yuki Ueno is having a banner year while NOAH’s Kaito Kiyomiya is currently going through a rough slump of results. The DDT’s team lived up to Konosuke Takeshita’s promise of getting an overwhelming win over Kiyomiya & Yoshiki Inamura. Takeshita used his power to do a German Suplex to Kiyomiya and his own partner Ueno. A big Dropkick from Ueno to Kiyomiya’s face was the move that captured everyone’s attention and the Best Moonsault Ever sealed the deal. Both of the DDT wrestlers were impressed with Inamura’s power though. This might not be the last time they cross paths. Kiyomiya insists that this current run of bad results is just a passing point for him.

The spirit of DDT was on full display when they went into battle against Kongo. The DDT team led by Sanshiro Takagi were as motivated as ever after Kenoh called the company a place only for wrestlers with side jobs. They armed themselves with many of DDT’s signature weapons: the Dramatic Dream Cycle, the rotary drill, the big hammer and the strongest of them all… Yoshihiko! The big meeting in the ring was when Yukio Sakaguchi and Kenoh faced off. During the chaos Kenoh must have lost his mind because he decided to use the Dramatic Dream to run over Takagi on the ramp! He and Katsuhiko Nakajima continued to beat on Takagi when Sakaguchi & Kazusada Higuchi came to the rescue. Sakaguchi hit Kenoh with the God’s Right Knee. Then, with Yoshihiko’s help, he caught Kenoh in the Sleeper Hold and held him back while Takagi pinned Haoh with the Sit Down Himawari Bomb. Takagi told Kenoh afterwards that he hates him but he will never force him to change his style. Every promotion in CyberFight can do the pro wrestling they want to do. There is only one goal and that is become the No. 1 pro wrestling power in the industry!

DDT’s offer match for the show was DAMNATION taking on the combined power of Chris Brookes & The 37KAMIINA in a trios match. MAO pulled out a firecracker but Daisuke Sasaki ducked and the pop hit Shunma Katsumata instead. DAMNATION went on a tear with Soma Takao using a Hurricanrana to Brookes out of the ring onto everyone outside, Tetsuya Endo then hitting a Swan Dive Shooting Star Press and even Mad Paulie getting involved behind the referee’s back. Sasaki finished MAO off with the Crossover Facelock to give DAMNATION the victory.

There were no heel turns in the NOAH Jr. Heavyweight match. I repeat, there were no heel turns in the NOAH Jr. Heavyweight match! The champion trio of Atsushi Kotoge, Daisuke Harada & Hajime Ohara went toe to toe against STINGER. Kotoge & Ohara cut off Yoshinari Ogawa & HAYATA outside the ring while Harada pinned Seiki Yoshioka with the Katayama German Suplex. Harada said it gives his team confidence to go into the match as champions and win.

The SKE48 idol Yuki Arai has gotten a lot of attention with her move into pro wrestling. Today was only her second match but it was still given a big spot on the card given it was her first bout in front of an audience. SKE48 graduate Jurina Matsui was in attendance to see her fight. Arai’s immediate rival Maki Itoh formed the Saitama Itoh Respect Army 2021 to steal the attention away from her. Having Yuki Kamifuku & Marika Kobashi on Itoh’s side worked out in the end because Arai almost pinned Itoh with the Finally (Axe Kick). They broke the count then got into a fight with Hikari Noa & Mizuki. With all of them out of the way, Itoh caught Arai in a Crab Hold then twisted it in a different angle to get the submission win. That version of the move is called the Itoh Punish. Jurina cheered her friend on when Arai was helped out of the ring by her partners.

One of the DDT Vs NOAH matches had Masa Kitamiya smash through Hideki Okatani in under three minutes. Okatani put up a fight in that short time but Suplexes, a Lariat and the Jail Hold resulted in Kitamiya getting his hand raised.

The unofficial SUGI & SAKU Titles match is one that Takashi Sugiura will not remember fondly in years to come. Probably not the weirdest thing Kazushi Sakuraba has ever been a part of though, to be honest. Sugiura & Sakuraba wrestled most of the match wearing their custom Super Strong Machine masks anyway. Before the match began, Super Sasadango Machine held a PowerPoint presentation titled “How To Beat Sugiura & Sakuraba”. You cannot beat them under normal conditions but Sugiura-gun are also not used to fighting against comedy wrestlers. The plan then is to make them laugh to throw them off their game. Sasadango brought out plastic bats to play a Guru Guru spinning game but Sugiura attacked him with it instead. Danshoku Dieno wore a mask of actress Takako Tokiwa’s face to seduce Sakuraba but his trap was foiled by an Ankle Lock. Sasadango unmasked in a moment that looked serious, but it was just so he could wear pantyhose on his head. Sugiura was then forced to wear pantyhose over his head too. He pinned Sasadango to end the bout and then apologised to the fans for having them watch a shit match.

The TJPW 3 Way Tag Match involved three teams all in position to get a future Princess Tag Team Titles shot. Kyoraku Kyomei warned that Shoko Nakajima was going to destroy Saitama Super Arena in a kaiju rampage but Hyper Misao would immediately fix it afterwards like the hero she is. The match went wild with Daydream and The Bakuretsu Sisters also involved. Kyoraku Kyomei came out on top in the end. Rika Tatsumi argued that Daydream still won because she and Miu Watanabe did not get pinned. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino said they still had fun despite Aino dropping the fall.

Yuki Iino revealed a new pink wrestling outfit when he came out for the opening match. The NOAH team of Junta Miyawaki & Kinya Okada were determined to start the show off on the right track for their company. Miyawaki made Toui Kojima tap out to get his team the win. Kojima ended up with a dislocated left elbow at some point but continued to fight until the end.

The STARTING BATTLE pre-show consisted of three matches and was home to Ganpro’s matches on the day. The headline bout of this section had Shuichiro Katsumura, Kouki Iwasaki & Yumehito Imanari defeat Ken Ohka, Keisuke Ishii & Shota. Everyone involved treated the match as if they were fighting to become the hero of Saitama Super Arena. Iwasaki got the pin and said he is ready to fight with anyone in Ganpro and was proud to do his thing inside this building. Ohka closed out this portion of the show by shouting “We are Ganbare☆Pro Wrestling!”

Antonio Honda was the last person standing in the Battle Royal. The match featured the return to the ring of Yoshiaki Yatsu for the first time in two years. He wrestled with his specailly made prosthetic foot after his right leg was amputated due to worsening diabetes. Yatsu was the first entrant in the match so he wasn’t taking things easy. Wrestlers from DDT, NOAH and Ganpro filled the ring and in the end, Honda used the power of Gongitsune to guide his way to victory.

The very first match of the day was the debut match of TJPW’s newest wrestler, Kaya Toribami. There was very little information about the masked woman given out and a solid performance in the ring today raises some questions. Is this somebody who already has wrestling experience going incognito? For the rest of the field, they could hardly contain themselves to perform in a major venue.

Only one Heaven Summit ~Itadaki~ match is happening on this show because Fuminori Abe Vs Takuya Nomura ended in a time limit draw, eliminating both of them from the tournament. Yasu Urano receives a bye straight to the semi-finals because of this. Daiki Shimomura is coming off of the biggest upset in Round 1, beating two time Itadaki winner Ryota Nakatsu. However that was under 2 Count Rules. Can he do the same against the veteran Minoru Fujita under the normal ruleset?

The contracts have been signed for the three championship matches. The match order was decided by measuring the career achievements of the three current champions. That means the GHC Heavyweight Title match will be the last match on the show, the KO-D Openweight Title match will be before the GHC match and the Princess Of Princess Title match will be before the KO-D match.

Super Sasadango Machine tried to invade the NOAH show at Korakuen Hall on Saturday to negotiate who he will fight at Saitama Super Arena. Unfortunately he doesn’t understand how wrestlers are able to crash other companies and couldn’t get past the entrance because he had no ticket for the show.

Maki Itoh has a grand vision for 121000000. She wants herself and Miyu Yamashita to hold all the championships in Tokyo Joshi Pro. Yamashita can have the Princess Title, Itoh can get back the International Princess Title and they will also take one Princess Tag Team Title belt each. Now comes the tough job, beating NEO Biishiki-gun. They did it once before in February but NEO Biishiki-gun got their win back in the Max Heart Tournament final a month later. Time for the rubber match!

Now 20 years old, Marika Kobashi is challenging for her first singles title to prove she has grown up. There is some jealousy behind the move because she didn’t like seeing Hikari Noa win the IP Title before she did.

6. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Jun Akiyama & Makoto Oishi Vs Chris Brookes & Antonio Honda
7. Ultimate Tag League 2021: Konosuke Takeshita & Shunma Katsumata Vs Daisuke Sasaki & Yuji Hino

The opening day of Ultimate Tag League 2021 will be held without an audience. The winning team at the end of the tournament receives a 1,000,000 yen prize and will be considered strong contenders for the KO-D Tag Team Titles. Eruption see themselves as the favourites because they are the former champions. Kazusada Higuchi wants to prove they are the strongest while Yukio Sakaguchi wants to get revenge on Smile Pissari and win back the belts. Makoto Oishi thinks Junretsu will win as long as he doesn’t lose any of the matches. Both members of The 37KAMIINA team have gained confidence recently, Konosuke Takeshita from his AEW excursion and Shunma Katsumata from wrestling in death matches. Daisuke Sasaki believes he needs to beat Takeshita in the first match to fully recover from his broken ribs. Sasaki suffered that injury during his D-Ou Grand Prix match with Takeshita last year. Yuji Hino admits he isn’t good competing in leagues so he’ll leave it to Sasaki to steer the team to victory. Antonio Honda is concerned with the state of his knees as the league goes on. Out of all the wrestlers in the league, he has the lowest level of crisis management. It doesn’t help that his first match is against Jun Akiyama’s team. At least Chris Brookes feels spiritual when he is near Honda so they should work well together.

1. DDT UNIVERSAL Title: Yuki Ueno (c) Vs Akito

Yuki Ueno is delving into his out of ring career for his next DDT UNIVERSAL Title defence. Akito hired him to manage the Dropkick Bar then left him high and dry when it came to giving any advice. That’s pretty much how DDT has been run for most of its existence. So this title match is personal to him. Shota admits that he can’t compete with Ueno on his current run but that doesn’t mean he cannot beat him. This is a challenge Akito will relish.

Azul Dragon will be on the show.

Some big additions to the show. The Princess Of Princess Title match went on a major turn and is now Miyu Yamashita against Yuka Sakazaki in a rematch of the 2020 Ittenyon show. Also added is a massive DDT versus Kongo inter-promotional match. Kongo’s leader Kenoh still hates that Sanshiro Takagi is his boss and also a powerful figure in control of NOAH.

All 22 members of the full time Tokyo Joshi Pro roster will be wrestling on the show. That means everybody except for NEO Biishiki-gun and Yuki Arai. However that does not mean the entire rosters for DDT, NOAH and Ganbare☆Pro will be booked. There’s still more matches and spots to be announced but it sounds like there will be a few absences when the line up is complete.

*Rika Tatsumi fails in V3. Miyu Yamashita becomes the 8th Princess Of Princess Champion!

As Tokyo Joshi Pro heads on the long journey to “CYBERFIGHT FESTIVAL 2021”, the landscape went through a big shift inside an empty Korakuen Hall today. Miyu Yamashita is now a 3 time Princess Of Princess Champion after she won it from Rika Tatsumi. She got a big hit in early with a High Kick. Tatsumi recovered to take control with Hip Attacks and submission holds. A back and forth saw kickouts to both the Attitude Adjustment and the Twist Of Fate. Tatsumi thought she had her opponent worn out with the Dragon Sleeper so she climbed the turnbuckle for the Missile Hips. Yamashita surprised her by catching her with a block and following through with a German Suplex. Tatsumi tried to stay in the fight by throwing more Hip Attacks until Yamashita knocked her silly with the Skull Kick. Tatsumi was able to kick out of the pin but another Skull Kick followed by the Crash Rabbit Heat brought the end to her title reign.

Yamashita herself was a little light headed after the match and needed confirmation from Maki Itoh at ringside to register that she won the match. She is sad that there were no fans in Korakuen today but is happy that they got to watch her on their screens at home. She invited Yuka Sakazaki into the ring to confirm they will face each other for the Princess Title at Saitama Super Arena on 6th June. Sakazaki calls it the match to determine the strongest in TJPW, and she’s going to win. Yamashita hopes the match will happen in front of a big audience so she’ll become even stronger as a champion.

NEO Biishiki-gun had their hands full against BeeStar in their first Princess Tag Team Titles defence. Mei Saint-Michel had her fun bullying Suzume until Suzume Dropkicked the silver tray into Saint-Michel’s chest. Mirai Maiumi sent the champs packing with a Double Lariat and then held them outside the ring for Suzume to dive onto them. Back in the ring Suzume went to do the Ring A Bell but Saint-Michel pushed her into Sakisama for a Big Boot. They then did the Tarte Tatin but Suzume kicked out at two. Sakisama got rid of Mirai with a High Kick which meant there was no one to rescue Suzume from giving up to the Saint-Michel. BeeStar may have earned a little bit of Sakisama’s respect though. She didn’t remember them before but today she learned who they are. They will have to give NEO Biishiki-gun thousands of reasons why they deserve a rematch but Sakisama will give them another go if she ever feel likes it.

The big upset of the day came when Hikari Noa beat Yuki Kamifuku to win the International Princess Title! Noa brought the fight out of the ring where Kamifuku was thrown into the ring post. Chairs were piled up on the floor but it was Kamifuku who slammed Noa onto them. Kamifuku caused more damage using chairs before the match went back to the ring. The match took a lot out of both wrestlers. Kamifuku climbed the ropes but Noa caught up with her to hit a Modified Avalanche Uranage. Back on their feet, Noa then hit the Blizzard Suplex for the three count, winning her first championship in her career. Backstage Kamifuku admitted that today Noa was a proper idol. She didn’t wear colored contact lenses and her concert performance at the start of the show was sharp. Kamifuku lost her title but thinks she is about to graduate into something bigger. She will become the Fujiko Mine of Fujisawa! Noa had a lot on her mind after winning the title. Her original tag team partner was the first champion and she was never able to have a title match against her. Then her most recent tag partner Sena Shiori said she wanted to see Noa win the title. Noa now wonders if this is her next step in becoming the Best Death Match Queen in the world. Whatever happens to her next, she wants to dye the IP Title in her colours and not the colour of Kamifuku.

Sakazaki won the 3 Way Match to become the No. 1 Contender, besting both Mizuki and Shoko Nakajima. At first The Magical Sugar Rabbits worked together but Mizuki broke the link by attacking Sakazaki when the chance presented itself. Mizuki and Nakajima then worked together to go 2-on-1 against Sakazaki. The loop was completed when The Miraclians helped each other out against Mizuki. A big scramble of finishers at the end had Nakajima give Mizuki the Northern Lights Suplex. But Sakazaki snuck in and pinned Nakajima with the Koromogawa to take the victory and book her place in Saitama Super Arena.

The debuting Yuki Arai started off her tag match with Arisu Endo but it was only a matter of time until she faced Maki Itoh. Obviously Arai was fighting from the bottom against those two but had Miu Watanabe there to keep things even. Watanabe distracted Itoh long enough for Arai to dodge the Flying Big Head. Arai then hit her signature moved, the Kakato Otoshi axe kick that she calls Finally (named after the SKE48 song). Endo broke the count so Arai went to do the move again. Itoh dodged it this time and Headbutted the rookie. She then planted her with a DDT and got her to tap to the Itoh Deluxe. Itoh called Arai weak after the match but also told her there are still fans watching at home who got courage from her performance. This isn’t Yuki Arai the SKE48 idol, it is Yuki Arai the pro wrestler! It doesn’t matter how many years it takes, Itoh is encouraging Arai to come and crush her because Itoh will crush Arai as many times as she wants!

Hyper Misao revealed that she and The Bakuretsu Sisters are the Tojo Tokusatsu Club and they prepared a secret plan called Formation A. It was supposed to be a combined attack when Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino carried Misao over their heads but it collapsed in failure. Raku then did the Good Night Express with Nao Kakuta & Marika Kobashi for added insult. The Tokusatsu Club regained their senses to win the match. After all, Tokyo Dome City is a sacred place not just for pro wrestling but for superheroes too.

Moka Miyamoto is still searching for her first win, roping in Mahiro Kiryu to help her. She put Pom Harajuku in the Cobra Twist but Haruna Neko broke the hold. Miyamoto then hit a Zero Fighter Kick for another nearfall. Harajuku turned the tables with a Dropkick and won with the Pom Do Justice.

It was an empty arena show but The Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) still performed their show opening act.
