TOKYO JOSHI PRO “AMEBA PRESENTS 8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 25/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
142 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

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

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

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

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

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

6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 2A: Miyu Yamashita Vs Yuki Kamifuku

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

Shin-Kiba 1st RING
142 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

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

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

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

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

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

Tokyo Princess Cup 2021 Brackets

July 14, 2021

The Tokyo Princess Cup brackets are now complete. 22 of the 23 participants (Marika Kobashi was absent due to school work) picked their numbers out of a random lottery and were matched together before giving their comments for the upcoming tournament.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 22/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Nao Kakuta Vs Miyu Yamashita
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Pom Harajuku Vs Mirai Maiumi
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Moka Miyamoto Vs Raku
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Arisu Endo Vs Mahiro Kiryu

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

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “8TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 23/07/2021
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

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

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

Shin-Kiba 1st RING

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

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

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

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

2. Nodoka Tenma defeated Mahiro Kiryu with the Killswitch (8:02).
3. Yuki Arai defeated Moka Miyamoto with the Finally (7:26).
4. International Princess Title: Hikari Noa (c) defeated Raku with the Blizzard Suplex (7:59).
*V2 for Hikari Noa.
5. Ameba Presents 8th Tokyo Princess Cup Pre-Battle Special 10-Woman Tag Match: Shoko Nakajima, Hyper Misao, Mizuki, Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe defeated Maki Itoh, Yuki Kamifuku, Nao Kakuta, Marika Kobashi & Mirai Maiumi when Tatsumi pinned Kobashi with the Missile Hip (22:48).

Before the main event began, Hyper Misao told both teams to take part in a cavalry battle to see which side was stronger. Mizuki and Maki Itoh were both carried on their team’s shoulders and they charged into each other when the bell rang. Both sides collapsed. After the match Rika Tatsumi said Tokyo Joshi Pro will continue to move forward and she will not set her own limits. Shoko Nakajima gave a shout out to the absent Miyu Yamashita and the team copied the poses of her, Yuka Sakazaki, Yuki Aino and Pom Harajuku to close out the show.

For the first time in their 4 year history, there was an all Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) championship match. Hikari Noa defeated Raku to defend the International Princess Title but there was a close call that could have ended with a title change. Raku used the Hurricane Turn that pinned Noa last month but this time Noa kicked out of it. Raku tried the move again but Noa fought her off with two Super Kicks and pinned her with the Blizzard Suplex. Noa’s current goal is to make it to “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2021” as the champion. Raku still chooses the IP Title as the championship she wants to win first if she gets another chance.

Yuki Arai wins her first singles match, beating Moka Miyamoto! Even if it was a fluke, Arai is happy to see her training is paying off. She was asked after the match if she wants to enter the Tokyo Princess Cup. She said she definitely does.

The first ever all Up Up Girls championship match is here! Hikari Noa puts the International Princess Title on the line against Raku after Raku pinned her on today’s show. Raku used a new Cross-Arm Backslide move that she has since named the Hurricane Turn. Noa wanted the match to take place in Ryogoku KFC Hall so she can get her win back in the same place.

Yuki Arai will be on the show. She is eager to win her first match but her four losses so far are already disappointing her.

Brookes has been a double champion with both belts before and become one again this way. However if Aoki loses the title before the match takes place, then their match will still go ahead with just the Extreme Title on the line.

6. Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Sakisama with the Crash Rabbit Heat (16:27).
*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.
