Saiki’s advice to Endo is to be energetic because that is how pro wrestlers become strong. She explained to her how to train muscles particularly in the legs and waist. When Endo asked about eating habits, Saiki encouraged her to take lots of protein. Endo came out of the training session wanting to be an energetic wrestler just like Saiki!

Maki Itoh called her team the new Itoh Respect Army after their win. However Yuki Kamifuku & Raku declined the membership offer. They like Itoh but don’t believe she is the cutest in the world. Itoh was upset until she saw Chris Brookes in the room. She brought him into the ring and told everyone the NEO Itoh Respect Army still exists. Brookes put on the t-shirt to prove it.

Whoever leaves the show as the Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Champion is guaranteed to defend it in Sumo Hall this November.

If he wins here then he will tie Ishii’s amount of successful defences.

Just to be clear, Kenichiro Arai is the Toryumon graduate and Yumehito Imanari is the art student.

Shota and Shinichiro Tominaga face each other in a battle between damaged ACLs.

Originally Koharu Hinata was booked for the show but she is now unable to appear. In a completely unrelated matter Miss Koharu became available so she takes her place.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “MY LIFE; LET’S ENJOY!!”, 19/10/2019
Tokyo Ryogoku KFC Hall

1. Princess Tag Team Titles: Sakisama & Misao (c) Vs Yuki Kamifuku & Mina Shirakawa

Sakisama has an appreciation for other beautiful people which is why she has at least a little respect for Yuki Kamifuku. Maybe she would have the same for Mina Shirakawa if Shirakawa ever stops trying to rap. But then again rapping is how the Cat’s Pye duo got their Princess Tag Team Titles shot.

Nakajima’s excursion to Mexico with CMLL will be over by the time this show takes place. No word yet on if she will be on this show but it’s likely. Tokyo Joshi have confirmed she will not be on the 9th, 10th and 16th November shows.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reika Saiki Ends Regular Participation With Tokyo Joshi

June 4, 2019

It was announced yesterday that Reika Saiki will no longer be a regular member of the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. She recently renewed her contract with WRESTLE-1 and will be committing her wrestling career to that company from now on. Saiki’s final match as a regular for Tokyo Joshi will take place on 22nd June. Saiki assures everyone that she will be able to wrestle for Tokyo Joshi again, just not as often. She thanked TJPW for everything she experienced during her three years with the company.

Saiki has pretty much done all there is to do in TJPW. She has held both the TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title and Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles. She also won the Tokyo Princess Cup in 2017 and has main evented Korakuen Hall twice. She formed the tag teams Muscle Strikers with Miyu Yamashita and Muscle JK with Marika Kobashi, the latter winning the Princess Tag Titles.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall
294 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Raku, Mina Shirakawa & Mirai Maiumi defeated Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu when Shirakawa pinned Kiryu with the Implant DDT (9:10).
2. Sakisama & Misao defeated Mizuki & YUMI when Sakisama submitted YUMI with the Versailles Foot Choke (11:12).
3. Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki defeated Marika Kobashi & Yuki Aino by TKO when Yamashita used the Modified Cobra Clutch on Kobashi (12:52).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Rika Tatsumi defeated Himawari Unagi with the Missile Hips (7:52).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miu Watanabe defeated Nodoka Tenma with the Tear Drop (7:56).
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Natsumi Maki defeated Hikari Noa with a German Suplex (10:15).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Shoko Nakajima defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Northern Lights Suplex (12:05).

Yuki Kamifuku pulled in Daisuke Kiso to prevent Shoko Nakajima from hitting the Northern Lights Suplex. In the middle of this fracas, Nakajima went for a Dropkick but Kiso took the hit instead of Kamifuku. The absence of a referee gave Kamifuku a chance to win but Nakajima was able to recover. Kamifuku had some fight left when she kicked out of the Northern Lights but one more use of the move eliminated her from the Tokyo Princess Cup. Nakajima admitted this turned into a dangerous match and it is becoming more difficult to win the tournament. She wants to win the Princess Cup while holding the TOKYO Princess Title because it hasn’t been done before.

There were hugs and smiles from Pandemic Boo-Boo after their match so Hikari Noa has no hard feelings over losing to Natsumi Maki. Maki hopes that this will become a meaningful match for Noa.

We only had to wait until the second match for the big upset of the tournament. Miu Watanabe overcame the odds to beat Nodoka Tenma! She escaped from the Killswitch and struck Tenma with the Laser Beam Punch. Watanabe then used a spinning version of the Flapjack called the Tear Drop to get the win. Watanabe wanted to go all out today to make up for missing last year’s Princess Cup.

Well so much for that fan vote. Himawari Unagi was the first woman eliminated from the tournament after a loss to Rika Tatsumi. Unagi feels regret over the result not just for her but also her generation of Tokyo Joshi Pro wrestlers. She thinks this class of five women are the most in-sync amongst the roster so she was representing them just as much as herself. For Tatsumi the win was just what she needed for a confidence boost.

Marika Kobashi was given a harsh looking farewell from Tokyo Joshi when Miyu Yamashita defeated her with the Modified Cobra Clutch. But that was the kind of treatment Kobashi wanted for her final match as a high school student. She thanked Yamashita and Reika Saiki for everything they’ve done for her even though her neck was left feeling sore. When her school exams are done she will prepare her body and mind for her return to Tokyo Joshi.

NEO Bishiiki-gun tried to make Mizuki see their way of life during their tag match. When Misao had YUMI held in a rest hold, Sakisama cut off Mizuki by putting her in a ballroom dance pose like she used to do with Azusa Christie. Mizuki said she hated it and later refused Misao’s request to “build a new world together.” Sakisama said backstage that Mizuki would look good in black and white. She promised to take away the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles from Mizuki as well as her mind and her heart!

It was announced that the music video for “Upper Kick!” by the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) is approaching 10,000 views on Youtube. The Up Up Girls are asking their fans to watch the video 30 times a day so it can surpass that number.

*V6 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.
8. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima defeated Miyu Yamashita (c) with the Locomotion Northern Lights Suplex (17:57).
*Miyu Yamashita fails in V11. Shoko Nakajima becomes the 6th TOKYO Princess Of Princess Champion!

Shoko Nakajima has become the Big Kaiju of Tokyo Joshi Pro! She toughed it out to end Miyu Yamashita’s dominant reign as the TOKYO Princess Champion, taking all that the champ could throw at her. The end came when Yamashita went for the Crash Rabbit Heat but Nakajima caught her with the Northern Lights Suplex. Then Nakajima rolled it through to do another Northern Lights for the three count.

When the match ended Nakajima said Yamashita is the best ace but now it is her who has the belt. However Nakajima doesn’t feel like she has the belt at all. She feels she needs to defend it a lot from now on so it will truly become hers. Thunder Rosa then came out to greet the new champion. Rosa said congratulations to the “Little Kaiju” then challenged her to a title match in Sapporo on Monday. When she called Nakajima a “Little Kaiju” Nakajima shouted “Big Kaiju!” back at her and accepted the challenge.

Pandemic Boo-Boo got their second shot at the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles but still couldn’t beat The Magical Sugar Rabbits. The combination of the Cutie Special, Magical Merry-Go-Round and the Magical Magical Girl Splash earned the champions their 6th defence. Yuka Sakazaki said afterwards that the belts feel heavier after every defence. She wanted to go celebrate with hamburgers when NEO Biishiki-gun interrupted her speech. Sakisama scoffed at the idea of eating burgers then turned her attention over to Mizuki. She thinks Mizuki looks pure white next to Sakazaki but if she becomes part of Sakiama’s collection she will shine even brighter. Misao tried to convince Mizuki to join NEO Biishiki-gun and listed all of the positive things that happened to herself since she joined. For example Misao’s hair has grown naturally and beautifully. Also her knee injury that hampered her previous life has become fully healed. It sounds like they are challenging the champions for a title match but it’s not. That’s because NEO Biishiki-gun are always the ones who accepts challenges, not make them. The Sugar Rabbits said they won’t let Sakisama get what she wants!

Rika Tatsumi & Miu Watanabe’s mission to turn Misao back into Hyper Misao was a big failure. They showed her a poster of Hyper Misao to jog her memories but Misao ripped the poster apart. With no other option Tatsumi had to wrestle Misao. She almost had her beat with the Dragon Sleeper but Sakisama broke the hold. Sakisama kicked Watanabe away with an Apron PK while Misao pinned Tatsumi with the Vanitas. Tatsumi still thinks Hyper Misao is still sleeping somwhere in her heart but Misao felt very cold. Watanabe also took shots at Sakisama, saying it’s not beautiful to make a fool out of other people.

Aja Kong said she’d give Maki Itoh ten minutes of her time and she lived up to her promise. Heck, she even got an extra 47 seconds out of it! Rumours were going around that Itoh’s head is tougher than Kong’s steel cans. It looked that way at points but when Itoh hit the Flying Big Head, Kong kicked out at one. It wasn’t long before Kong had Itoh beaten but Itoh got to stick her middle finger in Kong’s face before taking defeat. And after too. Itoh then got on the microphone afterwards and said the loss won’t effect her because she represents the Reiwa Era and she will never lose!

Marika Kobashi ends her current run with Tokyo Joshi on the winners side with Reika Saiki. Raku did well teaming with Riho but ultimately fell to Saiki’s power.

Thunder Rosa was just as concerned with trying to out-sexy Yuki Kamifuku as she was trying to out-wrestle her. Kamifuku hit the Fame Asser but Rosa was able to reach the ropes. She then blocked Kamifuku’s Brainbuster and hit the Reinella Splash to win.

The debut of Mirai Maiumi turned out to be a big occasion because the first Tiger Mask, Satoru Sayama was there in person to present her with an encouragement award before the match. Maiumi wants to be a power based wrestler and tried to beat Nodoka Tenma with a Reverse Lariat. Tenma instead caught Maiumi in the Killswitch to end the rookie’s first match with a loss.

Yuna Manase & Himawari Unagi did what works for them most when they team together and that’s smothering their opponent’s faces with their chests. Doing that to Pom Harajuku allowed Manase to pin her with the Suzuki Dynamic afterwards.
