5. YUMI Debut Match: Saki Akai defeated YUMI with the Leg & Face Lock (6:15).

7. Evening Before The Explosion! 5th Anniversary Special Best 2 Out Of 3 Falls 6-Woman Tag Match: Maki Ito, Shoko Nakajima & Riho (2) defeated Miyu Yamashita, Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (1).
7a. Maki Ito pinned Miyu Yamashita with an Inside Cradle (4:43).
7b. Miyu Yamashita pinned Maki Ito with a Backwards Kick (8:48).
7c. Shoko Nakajima pinned Yuka Sakazaki with the Diving Senton (5:27).

The big preview for 4th January saw the challengers team beat the champions side two falls to one. Maki Ito surprised Miyu Yamashita by countering the Attitude Adjustment into an Inside Cradle to win the first fall. Yamashita took the second when she withstood a Headbutt from Ito and knocked her down with a Backwards Kick. The deciding fall was focused on the two tag teams as the Magical Sugar Rabbits battled with Shoko Nakajima & Riho. Miscommunication between Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki allowed their opponents to give Sakazaki a Double Northern Lights Suplex. Nakajima then pinned Sakazaki with the Diving Senton to end the match. Ito taunted Yamashita by telling her she looks nervous after the match while Ito is still cute even after getting beaten up. Nakajima calmed things down by saying how fun the match was today. She said Tokyo Joshi Pro is now five years old. When they began they only had enough girls to put together three match shows. Now they have a big enough roster to do seven matches including 6-Women Tags! She hopes Tokyo Joshi will last for another 10, 15 or even 100 years and continue to grow bigger in the process.

Yuu has spent three and a half years of her life with Tokyo Joshi and today it came to an end. In her last match for the group she defeated her generational opposite Nodoka Tenma. Yuu said she had fun learning in Tokyo Joshi but would like to take full advantage of this opportunity to wrestle freelance and overseas. She’d be lying if she said she doesn’t feel lonely and perhaps she may become a totally different person when she comes back to Japan. Yuu thanked everyone for supporting her and for coming to see her last match in the company.

The debuting YUMI showed she is more powerful than she looks by giving Saki Akai a modified Choke Slam. However Akai stopped her with a Big Boot and trapped YUMI in a Leg & Face Lock to make the rookie tap out. Akai is interested in seeing how the 14 year old YUMI will develop from here. Akai also finds it interesting to see more tall girls entering Tokyo Joshi. YUMI thought the match was so tough that she would die. But she didn’t die, she came back. YUMI hopes she can become a pro wrestler that fans will want to support and see win. From the beginning YUMI wanted to make the Choke Slam her big move so she’s happy she got to use that. She also learned from Akai that adults don’t always have to act serious.

Hyper Misao came out with new music and a new plan. She wants to form a Hero Army to find her successor. She gave hero masks to Yuki Aino and Hinano and told them the match was an audition to find candidates. Aino and Hinano then decided to gang up on Misao instead. Misao tried to tell each of them they passed just so they would ease off but neither wanted to join her. Misao was able to roll Hinano over with a School Boy and used the ropes for leverage to steal the win.

Pom Harajuku got her first win today by beating her fellow rookie Haruna Neko.

Marika Kobashi announced her return match will be on 4th January. She was wearing an eyepatch because she got a stye in her left eye a few days ago.

The Bakuretsu Sisters will be releasing two photobooks on 4th January.

Tokyo Joshi’s next Korakuen Hall show after January will be on 3rd May.


Yuu’s Final Tokyo Joshi Match, Ganpro Barb Wire Match At Korakuen, Nakajima Joins Forces With Riho

4. 3 Way Match: Mizuki Vs Nodoka Tenma Vs Hinano
5. Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuu
6. Miyu Yamashita & Hikari Vs Maki Ito & Yuki Aino

Now that the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title is out of the main event picture, Maki Ito has to put all of her focus on Miyu Yamashita. According to Yamashita this will be the best idea for Ito because the chase for the TOKYO Princess Title is more interesting when the challenger doesn’t already have a belt.

Shinjuku FACE

The most developed feud in Ganbare☆Wrestling’s history has come back to the surface for the group’s second show in Korakuen Hall. There is history between Ken Ohka and Minoru Fujita, sometimes as friends but mostly as enemies. To ensure both men will give their absolute all, the match is going to be a No Rope Barbed Wire Death Match!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO JOSHI PRO ’19”, 04/01/2019
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Meiko Satomura Vs Reika Saiki
2. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Shoko Nakajima & Riho
3. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Maki Ito

The relationship mapping for the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match is a little bit all over the place. Yuka Sakazaki and Shoko Nakajima are friends and team together as the Miraclians. But Sakazaki currently teams with Mizuki as the Magical Sugar Rabbits. Mizuki has been friends with Riho since before joining Tokyo Joshi and they teamed together to challenge for the Tag Titles back in January. So when Nakajima was looking for someone good enough to beat the best team in TJPW, she picked Riho. No mention of a team name for them yet but there has certainly has to be one for the sake of the relationship chart.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN THREE” Results

November 17, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “5th ANNIVERSARY SHINKIBA TOUR 2018 AUTUMN THREE”, 17/11/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING
288 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Yuki Kamifuku defeated Hinano with the Fame Asser (7:43).
2. Haruna Neko Debut Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Haruna Neko with the Unmanned Local Train Hold (6:36).
3. 3 Way Match: Yuna Manase defeated Raku and Mina Shirakawa when Manase pinned Raku with the Neck Screw Hold (11:20).
4. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title: Miyu Yamashita & Nodoka Tenma defeated Maki Ito (c) & Hyper Misao when Yamashita submitted Ito with a Crab Hold (13:24).
*Miyu Yamashita becomes the 1,333rd champion.
5. Yuu defeated Yuki Aino with the Katahajime (8:28).
6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) defeated Hikari & Miu when Sakazaki pinned Hikari with the Magical Magical Girl Splash (14:34).
*V2 for The Magical Sugar Rabbits.

The Up Up Girls duo put up a good fight with even Miu doing a Double Body Slam to Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki but they just couldn’t beat the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions. Late in the match Hikari kept Sakazaki in her clutches with the Cobra Twist but Mizuki broke the hold. Sakazaki dropped Hikari with the Complete Shot, Mizuki followed up with a Diving Foot Stop and Sakazaki got the pin with the Magical Magical Girl Splash. The champions told Hikari & Miu that they respect them from the bottom of their hearts.

Shoko Nakajima then entered the ring. She congratulated the Magical Sugar Rabbits and called them the best team in Tokyo Joshi Pro. She wants to challenge them for the tag titles at Korakuen Hall on 4th Janaury but knows that Sakazaki is her best partner when they team up as Miraclians. She needs to team with somebody beyond Sakazaki and boy did she find someone. It’s Riho! The Rabbits accepted the challenge. It kind of complicates the relationships between all four women but they all think it is worth it to create the best match possible.

Yuu asked Nodoka Tenma to be her final opponent in Tokyo Joshi on 1st December. The two made their debuts on the same day and have wrestled each other more times than any other person in the company. Tenma accepted but told Yuu she will not lose to her again. Tenma will finally beat Yuu on the day Yuu leaves Tokyo Joshi!

Maki Ito suffered a major blow in the build up to 4/1 by losing the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title to Miyu Yamashita! The two faced off in a tag match with Nodoka Tenma and Hyper Misao also involved. Ito kicked out of a Right High Kick at one but was beaten down by Yamashita with Buzzsaw Kicks and a Cobra Clutch. Yamashita then locked in a Crab Hold to make Ito submit. Yamashita poured salt on the wounds by taunting Ito with both the Iron Man Title and the TOKYO Princess Title before leaving the ring. Yamashita achieved her goal for today. She thinks their Korakuen match will be more interesting if Ito has to chase after her in the build up. Ito can’t do that if she already has a championship. Well, problem solved.

Haruna Neko had her debut match against Shoko Nakajima. It started off playful as both girls had fun with each other’s tails. Haruna also used a test of strength to make fun of Nakajima’s height by lifting her hand above Nakajima’s reach. Nakajima rolled Haruna into the Unmanned Local Train Hold from a La Magistral to make the rookie submit. For now Haruna hopes to learn more moves that she can use in her next matches.

The two remaining trainees waiting to debut learned who they will be facing in their first matches. Kyou takes on Yuka Sakazaki on 24th November and Yumi will face Saki Akai on 1st December.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2 ~NOW IT’S TIME TO ATTACK~” Results

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2 ~NOW IT’S TIME TO ATTACK~”, 25/08/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
960 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Hikari & Raku defeated Miu & Hinano when Hikari submitted Hinano with a Cobra Twist (8:36).
2. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Yuna Manase & Yuki Kamifuku when Tenma pinned Kamifuku with the Killswitch (7:22).

6. TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki defeated Reika Saiki & Maki Ito when Mizuki pinned Ito with the Cutie Special (15:59).
*The Magical Sugar Rabbits become the 4th TOKYO Princess Tag Team Champions!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) defeated Yuu with the Crash Rabbit Heat (17:09).
*V5 for Miyu Yamashita.

No amount of chops can stop Miyu Yamashita! At first Yuu had an answer for Yamashita by blocking the Crash Rabbit Heat, hitting plenty of chops at her opponent’s chest and tossing the champion over with a Judo Throw. But Yamashita escaped from the Last Ride and wore down Yuu with many different kicks. Yuu blocked a Buzzsaw Kick but Yamashita tricked her with a feint so she could hit a Backspin Kick right on the button. From there Yamashita was able to hit the Crash Rabbit Heat to earn a 5th successful defence of the TOKYO Princess Title.

The result was something Yamashita wanted to achieve for a long time. When she was the first Princess Champion, she lost the belt to Yuu in Korakuen Hall. That stuck with her until today when she was able to avenge the loss in the same building. Yamashita said she will continue to raise Tokyo Joshi Pro and will defend the title against anyone who challenges her. Priscilla Kelly came out and with Yuki Kamifuku translating for her to mixed results, congratulated the champion for a great match and challenged her to a title match. Yamashita accepted and said she wants the match on 14th October in Fukuoka, her hometown. They shook hands until Kelly licked Yamashita up the arm and left the ring.

An emotional end to the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match saw Mizuki pin Maki Ito but not before Ito put everything into trying to win and collapsing in the process. Ito even did her own Diving Foot Stomp to her now possibly former Ito Respect Army member. Things look bleak for the Magical Sugar Rabbits when Ito & Reika Saiki put them both in Crab Holds in the centre of the ring. Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki persevered be grabbing each other by the hand and crawling together towards the ropes. Ito missed a Diving Big Head which allowed Sakazaki to hit the Magical Girl Splash and Mizuki to follow it up with her Diving Foot Stomp. Ito eventually got up looking to trade blows with Mizuki but she collapsed from exhaustion. She was still able to kick out of a pin but she was done when she ran into the Cutie Special. After the match Ito had a staredown with Mizuki and left the ring so Mizuki could celebrate her first championship win in Tokyo Joshi with Sakazaki.

Riho bested Shoko Nakajima in the battle between the 619s. Nakajima got a nearfall with the Northern Lights Suplex but missed the Diving Senton. Riho capitalised by hitting the Somato to grab the victory.

Azusa Takigawa’s final match at Korakuen Hall was also Saki Akai’s first Tokyo Joshi match as herself in the same venue. Takigawa tried to motivate herself when she was in a troubled spot by telling everyone she cannot lose if she wants to get signed by Akai’s agency. She gave Akai the Christie Agape and pinned her Azusa Christie style but only got a two count. Akai recovered and hit the Rookie Award for the victory. She praised Takigawa for putting up a good fight. In a backstage interview Akai was told that she resembles a certain French girl who wrestled in Tokyo Joshi recently. Akai isn’t interested in her although she’s been told they look alike.

Hyper Misao’s crafty plan for her match against Priscilla Kelly was to bring in Shota to falsely translate her welcome message for Kelly. Misao told the audience that Kelly does not understand Japanese so she will tell them about her plan. Shota told Kelly in English that Misao wanted a clean fight. Misao also said she expects Kelly will lick her face so she rubbed wasabi on her mask before the match. Kelly briefly fainted when she licked the mask but she recovered in time to continue fighting. Misao took out a tube of wasabi paste but Kelly grabbed it off her and squeezed out the wasabi into Misao’s mouth while she was in a Dragon Sleeper. Priscilla won the match with a Cross Arm Neckbreaker Drop from the turnbuckles.

A new name, a new look, a new song and a new finishing move for Nodoka Tenma. She now uses the Killswitch to win her matches. She described today as the beginning of her second season. Chapter one was Nodoka-oneesan, Chapter two is Nodoka Tenma. She is certain both will be remembered as masterpieces!

Yukinori Matsui officiated an Up Up Girls match for the first time so he was confused by their antics like when Raku did the Good Night Express sit down on Miu. The end came with Miu giving Raku a Canadian Backbreaker Drop while Hikari hit a Missile Dropkick to Hinano. Hikari then made Hinano submit to a grounded Cobra Twist. This was the Up Up Girls’ first match in Korakuen since their debut back in January. Hikari took the losing fall in that match so she got to experience the opposite side in the same place today!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “BRAND NEW WRESTLING 2 ~NOW IT’S TIME TO ATTACK~”, 25/08/2018
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. Special Single Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Riho
2. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Miyu Yamashita (c) Vs Yuu

Nodoka-oneesan gave a surprising announcement that she is graduating from her current gimmick and will come to this show with new name, a new costume and new entrance music. Nodoka feels that after reaching the semi-finals of the Tokyo Princess Cup, she needs to move on from her current gimmick to make the next step. She isn’t entirely sure what she is going to become because she has always been the “Older Sister” character from her debut.

Shoko Nakajima wanted a singles match with Riho to celebrate the 5th anniversary of her debut. Her wish has come true. They previously wrestled each other in a TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles match at the January Korakuen Hall Show earlier this year. Riho is happy to be back in Tokyo Joshi Pro because there are a variety of different women wrestlers here. Her match with Nakajima will be a lot different than the match she had with Maki Ito back in May for example.

7. Isami Kodaka defeated Masahiro Takanashi with the Isamuashi Zan (27:11).

Even though this show was put together to celebrate Masahiro Takanashi’s 15th anniversary in wrestling, he only appeared for the main event match against Isami Kodaka. He never came out at the start of the show, instead nominating Sayaka Obihiro to give the opening speech. After the main event, he bowed in the centre of the ring to every side of the building then made his exit. KUDO and Yukio Sakaguchi closed out the show with a speech on his behalf. He didn’t stick around for any backstage interviews either. Kodaka said that the generation that he and Takanashi are a part of still need to step up against the younger wrestlers.

There was a nostalgic theme to the show with a lot of former DDT wrestlers showing up. Takashi Sasaki, GENTARO & Tanomusaku Toba were the mystery trio taking on KUDO, HARASHIMA & Ken Ohka. Everyone shook hands with each other after the match, but slapped Ken Ohka when he tried to shake them.

The UMA Corps targeted Saki Akai earlier in the week by sending one of their monsters to stalk her. Today she got to face off against the Chupacabra as part of a colourful 10-Man Tag Match also featuring the returns of T2Hide, Gota Ihashi, the Brahman BrothersGorgeous Matsuno and Emi Sakura. Ihashi wanted to protect Akai but the other team easily beat him up. Kazuki Hirata brought back the Hirata GO! glasses and danced to his music. The song annoyed the Brahman Brothers because it brought back bad memories from their Toryumon lives. Brahman Shu threw a briefcase at Akai but she ducked and it hit Chupacabra instead. Akai then pinned Chupacabra with a Diving Body Press. The Brahmans fled after the match but the UMA leader Miyako Haru warned Akai that the UMA are everywhere like a black shadow. Hirata interrupted her by giving Hirata GO! glasses to everyone and they all danced.

Both MAO and DJ Nira kept putting Daisuke Kiso in harm’s way. They kept blaming each other until Kiso took one bump too many and called off the match for his own safety.

The Tag Gauntlet had plenty on offer. Makoto Oishi & Cherry were ambushed by Antonio Honda & Riho at the start. Riho later saved Honda from getting pinned by hitting Oishi with the Somato, rolling Honda back on top for the three count. Konosuke Takeshita did not hesitate to fight Riho one on one. Honda & Riho hit each other with Bionic Elbows when Yasu Urano dodged them. Urano then threw Honda out of the ring to eliminated that team. Takeshita tried to use Rekka’s Nishinari Elbow against him but missed. Takeshita was able to pin him with a Lariat afterwards. The mystery team were revealed to be Danshoku Dieno & Yoshihiko with Yusuke Inokuma as Yoshihiko’s holder. Inokuma threw Yoshihiko at Takeshita to knock him off the apron and eliminate his team. Dieno & Yoshihiko were then eliminated by Akito & Shunma Katsumata when Inakuma got tangled up in Yoshihiko’s string and accidentally hung himself over the ropes while Katsumata gave Yoshihiko a Piledriver. Rather than count the pin, Yukinori Matsui immediately eliminated Dieno & Yoshihiko to save Inokuma. Hoshitango & Kazusada Higuchi entered in sumo gear and quickly beat ALL OUT. Tomomitsu Matsunaga & Keisuke Ishii were the final entry but they lost out to the sumo team.

*V2 for SekiGuchi.

One of the recurring things to happen on “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI” is Kazusada Higuchi putting his opponents through tables. This week he got a taste of his own medicine when Shunma Katsumata dove off the entrance gate to crush Higuchi through a table! Daisuke Sekimoto and Konosuke Takeshita did German Suplexes to each other but the result came down to Higuchi pinning Katsumata with the Doctor Bomb. The KO-D Tag Team Champions were told afterwards that their next defence will be on the 26th June episode of Maji Manji against DAMNATION members Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie. This match takes place two days after Higuchi challenges for the KO-D Openweight Title.

Good news everyone! Mad Paulie learned new words, “oppai” and “chininko”. Also Daisuke Sasaki revealed he is healthy enough to wrestle again so he added himself to the DAMNATION Vs DDT Elder Brothers match, giving DAMNATION a 4 on 3 advantage. Masahiro Takanashi came out to even the odds and the match became 4 Vs 4. Once again cheating from DAMNATION was the reason for HARASHIMA losing the match. Sasaki used a chair to block the Somato then Soma Takao gave HARASHIMA a Low Blow. Sasaki pinned him with the Hurricanrana afterwards. Sasaki told Soma and Endo that he heard a rumour about them not getting along and encouraged the two to kiss and make up. Endo took it literally puckered up for a kiss but Soma stayed quiet and left the ring.

Ken Ohka appeared at the show to learn what the Punishment Match he earned last week was going to be. Producer Danshoku Dieno told him that on the 26th June episode of Maji Manji, Ohka will take on the 19 year old kickboxing phenom Tenshin Nasukawa! This kid has been competing for four years and currently has a 26-0 pro record. Dieno knows how much Ohka wants to be a major sports player so this pro wrestling versus kickboxing match will be perfect for him. Ohka tried to convince everyone that this isn’t a punishment match and he is excited for it.

Antonio Honda literally tied Yoshihiko into knots during their match. Yoshihiko recovered and hit a big Sasuke Special to both Honda & Keisuke Ishii outside the ring. Yoshihiko stunned Honda with a Lip Lock which allowed Dieno to give him the Danshoku Driver. Dieno then pulled Yoshihiko on top of Honda for the pin.

Mizuki Watase’s time with two Right To Challenge Gauntlets was short lived. Mike Bailey pinned him today to win the rights of the black gauntlet. Both Bailey & MAO want to cash in the gauntlet at the 24th June show in Korakuen Hall for a KO-D Tag Title match. It had to be explained to them that the gauntlet is only used for KO-D Openweight Title shots.

Yesterday Riho celebrated her 21st birthday. HARASHIMA gave her a unique gift, permission to write “Somato” in kanji. Both wrestlers use the Somato as their finishing move but Riho’s version was previously written in hiragana (そうまとう). Now that she is an adult she gets to write it in kanji (蒼魔刀). During today’s tag match, Toru Owashi attempted to do La Magistral Cradle on Saki Akai. Takanashi gave Owashi a Thrust Kick and Akai rolled Owashi into a School Boy. Riho stopped the pin by hitting the Somato on Akai and Owashi was able to pin Akai to win the match.

Akito called out Kota Umeda for failing to defend the KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Titles over the last two months. Earlier in the show it was confirmed that ALL OUT would be challenging Umeda, Yuki Ueno & Koji Takeda for the titles on 24th June. Umeda changed the subject by promoting his match next week with Masato Takana. He was interrupted by Makoto Oishi who wanted to fight him over who the real star of Maji Manji should be. Umeda ignored him.
