March 14, 2020

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI KAGUYAHIME ~MIYAKO HOUSE 2020~”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena
108 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Chikara (w/ Mao) defeated Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) with the Saber Chop (19:38).

The show began with a thrilled Miyako Matsumoto and Munenori Sawa announcing today’s Gake no Fuchi Joshi show has sold out with a bigger crowd than the one they had back on Christmas Eve. Sawa mentioned that Sanshiro Takagi couldn’t be here because he was having a meal with the president of AbemaTV. Matsumoto said if anyone in the audience had any complaints about the show, they should still send them to Takagi. The two left the ring then re-entered as part of the athlete’s ceremony. They remembered that the goal for today was to find a bride for Chikara.

The candidates Mao and Ichiho Shirahata entered the ring to meet Chikara. Before the match began, the two candidates faced off in a rap battle. Matsumoto joined in and the three way got too exciting for Chikara to handle. Daisuke Kiso ended the rap battle and asked the fans to choose the winner. Mao won the audience vote.

Next up was one of the regular challenges on these shows, the Kiso Flag Race. Matsumoto and Mao would race from the stage into the ring. The first one to hit Kiso would be the winner However, Mao turned out to be Sawa dressed in the same clothes. Sawa kicked Matsumoto out of the way and hit Kiso to win.

The show took a break for a special presentation of “Chikara Mania”. Darth Chikara came out to fight Ouchi Yoda in a Lightsaber duel. Matsumoto interrupted it and attacked both of them with a baseball bat “rigged to explode” with confetti. The match was ruled a no contest as the room filled with gun smoke.

Next, Metropoli-chan V entered the ring wearing a wedding dress. She was here to enter the contest and become Chikara’s bride. Matsumoto attacked her with the bat too.

Sawa and Chikara had a karaoke contest. Sawa sang “God Of Romance” and Chikara sang “Young Man”. Chikara won the audience vote.

There’s going to be a wrestling match soon. I swear! But first was another special presentation called “Ichiho Mania”. Shirahata and Mao has a Sailor Uniform Girl Showdown that did not feature sailor uniforms. They instead played a game where they had to push a piece of thread through a needle. Neither of them could do it so the game ended in a draw.

The ring announcer Uta Shima then added herself as a bride candidate. Shima and Shirahata both flirted with Chikara by saying different words in either a sexy or cute manner. Kiso judged Shima to be the winner.

When that was over Matsumoto, Mao, Chikara and Shirahata sat together to mimic a TV morning show debate. They talked about how charming Chikara is then started arguing over each other’s cooking skills. A fight was going to break out so Kiso ended the segment before things got violent. Shirahata was declared the winner of the talk show.

It was finally time for Chikara to make his decision. But just when he was about to choose his bride, his father Mitsuo Momota walked out! Even though Momota wants to have grandchildren as soon as possible, he came here today to watch a wrestling match! Matsumoto Vs Chikara was ready to begin, but first there was a 10 minute break.

At last the match happened. Mao got involved by putting Matsumoto in a Cobra Twist. Sawa ran in to rescue her but Chikara got rid of him with a Chop. Matsumoto grabbed Mao’s baseball cap and threw it away which made Chikara furious. Suddenly there were the surprise appearances of ASHUKA and Lingerie Muto! They fought until ASHUKA told everyone she had to fly back home to America. Muto left too and Sawa returned to fight Chikara in a proper wrestling match. Matsumoto used Sawa’s help to get the better of her opponent until Mao interfered again. Sawa went for the Shining Wizard on Chikara but Matsumoto got in the way and took the hit instead. Mao hit Matsumoto with the Saber Chop and Chikara followed up with one of his own to take the victory.

Chikara thanked Mao for teaming with him today. He was about to nominate her to be his bride when suddenly Shirahata’s manager came out. He said there was a violation of the rules. Chikara was not allowed to contact any of the women before the show but proof was shown on screen that Chikara sent a Twitter DM to Shirahata a few days ago! Matsumoto attacked Chikara for breaking the rules. It was then revealed that the kind of person Chikara really wants to marry is a female pro wrestler. That way then can talk about and share the same dream together. He won’t be able to marry Mao, but at least everybody now forgives him for sending the DM. Everyone then sang together to give the audience a happy ending.

Saitama Super Arena

1. Rojo Current Blast Death Match: Atsushi Onita Vs X
2. DDT Extreme Title: HARASHIMA (c) Vs Shinya Aoki

A few things about this show. It is being held at Saitama Super Arena empty arena style. This was the plan before the Coronavirus situation appeared. The DDT Extreme Title bout will not be the only match happening. Atsushi Onita will be there expecting to have a Current Blast Death Match of some sort. Oh and now Danshoku Dieno is angry that he was booked without being told so he is forming a locker room coup to wage war against Sanshiro Takagi.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

Miyako Matsumoto spent yesterday undergoing special ramen training in Shibuya. It was Munenori Sawa’s idea because cooks put their soul into their food just like how wrestlers put their soul into their performance. If Matsumoto can create delicious ramen then the Gake no Fuchi Joshi show this week will surely succeed! After a four hour training course, Matsumoto created her ramen dish and was gifted a 500 yen coin by the chef. Sawa called it a great first step that shows how Gake no Fuchi Joshi can become more and more valuable.

GANBARE☆WRESTLING “HIEROPHANT GREEN 2020”, 11/04/2020
Tokyo Itabashi Green Hall

1. Hataage 6th Anniversary Match ~New And Old Ganpro Vs Tomodachi-gun~: Ken Ohka & Keisuke Ishii Vs Minoru Fujita & Hagane Shinno

The match name is sort of misleading. Originally Ganbare☆Wrestling began in 2013 and regularly ran shows for the year. It then took a break in the first few months of 2014 to relaunch as a “major sports league” in April of that year. So this match is the 6th Anniversary of the relaunch.

Ganpro celebrates its anniversary with a return to the promotion’s deepest feud. Minoru Fujita and the Tomodachi-gun unit were a thorn in Ken Ohka’s side from 2015 to 2016. Now Fujita has revived it for the special occasion with one of the original members Hagane Shinno (he was wrestling under the name Madoka back then). Keisuke Ishii gets to find out for himself what this unit was like to fight.

People attending the shows are advised to wear face masks and also use any hand sanitizers provided by the venue. All wrestlers will also be wearing face masks during autograph and photo sessions (yes that means they will be wearing the masks while getting their photos taken with fans). This will be the plan going forward until the status of virus infections changes.

GAKE NO FUCHI JOSHI PRO “GAKEPPUCHI SNOW WHITE 2020”, 12/03/2020
Saitama Wrestle Arena

1. Miyako Matsumoto (w/ Ippanjin Munenori Sawa) Vs Chikara (w/ Mao)

Due to Sanshiro Takagi’s increasingly busy schedule, he will no longer have the time to make public appearances for Gake no Fuchi Joshi. He has selected Munenori Sawa to take his place as the deputy owner. Takagi is still the proper owner of Gake no Fuchi but anything regarding public announcements, decisions and appearances will be done by Sawa from now on. Sawa wanted to decline the position but was guilted into taking it because they were broadcasting the announcement live online at the time.

Another potential bride has been found for Chikara! The idol Mao is bringing along Ichiho Shirahata from Gekijo-ban Gokigen Teikoku Ω to see the show. Shirahata is familiar with pro wrestling and has seen both Miyako Matsumoto and Tokyo Joshi Pro matches live in person. At first Chikara was worried about having to wrestle against Matsumoto because he did not want to hit a woman. But with Mao supporting him and a potential marriage with Shirahata on the line, he is motivated and ready to fight like a warrior.

BASARA “FUMA FEST VOL.4 DECADE OF DECADANCE ~FUMA FUCKIN’ 10TH ANNIVERSARY~”, 11/04/2020

1. Okinawa Pro Title: Eisa8 (c) Vs FUMA

The inactive Okinawa Pro Title is on the line in the main event. The promotion ended five years ago and Eisa8 somehow won the title two years after he left the place. It didn’t live long but it definitely has a place in FUMA’s heart.

Kazuki Hirata will be on the show.

DDT “WRESTLE PETER PAN 2020”, 07/06/2020
Saitama Super Arena

1. Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title – Time Difference Battle Royal: Toru Owashi (c) Vs Michiaki Nakano Vs X

Souken Holdings will once again sponsor a match at DDT’s biggest show of the year. That of course also means that one of the company director’s Michiaki Nakano will be there. He still desires the Iron Man Heavymetalweight Title even after briefly becoming the champion for around 30 seconds last year. He wants to be in the Battle Royal to win the title again. Takagi is considering the idea but is worried that the fans would get turned off the show when they see Nakano’s physique. Takagi will only allow Nakano to enter the match if he gets in shape for it.

February 16, 2020

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TJPW FAN CLUB BOX OFFICE – PURE TOKYO JOSHI PRO WRESTLING 4”, 16/02/2020

2. Rika Tatsumi defeated Haruna Neko with a Small Package (7:27).
3. Nodoka Tenma & Nodoka-oneesan (Yuki Aino) defeated Nodoka-oneesan (Shoko Nakajima) & Nodoka-oneesan (Hyper Misao) when Tenma, Nodoka (Aino) and Nodoka (Nakajima) pinned Nodoka (Misao) (6:20).

5. 2 Count Best 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match: Mizuki & Mahiro Kiryu (2) defeated Miyu Yamashita & Suzume (1) (3:27).
5a. Mizuki pinned Suzume with a Crab Scissors (0:28)
5b. Miyu Yamashita pinned Kiryu with a Middle Kick (3:21).
5c. Mahiro Kiryu pinned Miyu Yamashita after the Foot Stomp from Mizuki (3:27).

The main event was Best 2 out of 3 Falls with only two count pins needed to win each fall. Mizuki quickly won the first fall by countering Suzume’s Crab Hold into a Scissors Cradle. Miyu Yamashita evened the score by pinning Mahiro Kiryu. In the final fall, Mizuki used a Casadora on Yamashita to roll her in position for a Jumping Foot Stomp. Kiryu then leapt on top of Yamashita for the surprise pinfall. Yamashita blamed the loss on her forgetting the 2 count rule. Kiryu was happy to close out the Fan Club show for the second time in a row.

Yuka Sakazaki and Pom Harajuku faced off in a Valentine Death Match. The contest wasn’t dangerous at all for those two. In Round 1 random members of the audience were given two pieces of chocolate made by Sakazaki and Harajuku without being told which one was which. Afterwards they had to choose which one they liked more. After the vote it was revealed that Sakazaki’s chocolate was the winner. The second game was a cream puff eating challenge. Whoever ate the cream puff filled with wasabi would win. However the Up Up Girls (Pro Wrestling) joined them and Hikari Noa ate the wasabi puff. The game went to sudden death and Harajuku eventually ate another puff filled with wasabi to win. The final round involved the Up Up Girls all attempted to feed Sakazaki and Harajuku a piece of hot chocolate while blindfolded. Sayuri Nanba and the referee were fed the chocolate by accident but Harajuku ended up getting bite too so she ultimately won the Death Match.

Unfortunately Shoko Nakajima, Hyper Misao and Yuki Aino were all missing from the show. Luckily replacements were found, three Nodoka-oneesans! The one that looked like Aino teamed up with Nodoka Tenma while the two that looked like Nakajima and Misao were paired together. The one that looked like Misao attempted the I Am A Hero but missed and was pinned by the other three. After the match all four women bumped into each other. They tried to do a Miyu Yamashita victory pose in their stunned state but all collapsed instead.

The last time Rika Tatsumi and Haruna Neko faced off at a Fan Club show, Neko had two other tag partners for a Handicap Match. Tatsumi was confident she would win today and gave Neko a less than 1% chance of beating her. Neko got some help from the Up Up Girls but it backfired when she got a bat and hit all of her allies by accident. Tatsumi cradled Neko for the win.

The Sea Rider used by Mirai Maiumi is a Modified Camel Clutch with one knee pressed against the victim’s back.

Himawari Unagi and the trainee Aona held a quick Rock Paper Scissors tournament for the fan club members during intermission.

The debut of Gake no Fuchi Joshi Pro brought along 100 fans to the Saitama Wrestle Battle Hall. According to Miyako Matsumoto that meant these 100 fans did not go to Korakuen Hall for the other big joshi show running today on Christmas Eve, which pleased her. She went over the previous history of Gake no Fuchi and explained how the promotion came back to life. She was worried with how the show would work out but is very satisfied by the result.

The advertised match between Matsumoto and Jiro “Ikemen” Kuroshio was held under Gake no Fuchi rules. They are mostly the same as pro wrestling rules. However at random times during the match a whistle will be blown and a minigame will take place. Their example of a minigame was “something like the battle between light and darkness that has been around since the beginning of history.” Points are awarded to the wrestlers depending on the result of the minigame. Should the wrestling match end in a 60 minute draw then whoever has the most points will be declared the winner.

Matsumoto was the first to make her entrance. She completely copied Kuroshio’s entrance by using the “HELLO” song, wearing her own Ikemen jacket and stalling for as long as he would. The referee Daisuke Kiso then came out and also did the Ikemen entrance with the same song and his own jacket. The song continued playing for a while until Chikara unexpectedly came out doing the entrance! Finally Kuroshio appeared, confused as to how or why Chikara got here. Chikara explained he was the witness for the match, so he went to sit down at ringside.

The match began with Kuroshio threatening to squash Matsumoto. They locked up, fought around ringside for a little bit then Kuroshio hit Matsumoto with a big Shoulder Block that looked to have knocked her out. The whistle blew and it was time for the first minigame: “Ryogoku Sumo Match Day 1!”

The two squared off for a game of sumo. Kuroshio threw down Matsumoto and received a point for winning. The match returned to pro wrestling rules until the whistle blew again. The next minigame was “Ryogoku Sumo Match Day 2!” Matsumoto improved this time but still could not beat Kuroshio so she was now losing 2-0 in points. A puzzled Kuroshio shouted at his opponent, asking if she knew anything about Sumo?

The whistle blew for the 3rd minigame: “Gake no Fuchi Proxy War!” Out came the Ohuchi Rider to confront Chikara who had suddenly fallen to the Dark Side. Rider attacked Chikara with a bottle opener and a brick but Chikara deflected them with a lightsaber. Chikara used the Force to make Rider choke himself by wrapping a chain around his own neck. Ohuchi Rider was defeated which means Kuroshio won his third point.

The 4th minigame was “Gake No Fuchi Last Gig Confrontation”. A keyboard was placed in the ring and both wrestlers had to play a song. Matsumoto went first and played Kuroshio’s entrance song “HELLO” on a melodica. She thought she had outsmarted her opponent but Ikemen surprised everyone by playing “Bakusho Sengen”, the theme of Shinya Hashimoto on the keyboard! Ikemen won the audience vote and increased his lead to 4-0.

There was no time to recuperate because they went straight to “Ryogoku Sumo Match Final Day!” Kuroshio put Matsumoto in a Manjigatame while Rider and Chikara played sumo. Kuroshio let go of Matsumoto and threw Rider onto the mat. The referee ruled it as a win for Kuroshio. He tried to give Matsumoto a Brainbuster when the whistle blew again.

This time the game was “Gake No Fuchi Flag Race”. Both Matsumoto and Kuroshio had to lie face down near the entrance. After a countdown the first person to get up and attack Kiso wins the point. Matsumoto got into the ring faster than Kuroshio but Kiso avoided her attack and struck her with a Flying Cross Chop. Now Daisuke Kiso had won a point!

There were a few nearfalls and the match looked like it was back to normal. Then there was yet another whistle for a game of “Gake no Fuchi Must Not Laugh Christmas”. A manzai style comedy double act entered the ring wearing bathrobes (the woman was Metropoli-chan V, I didn’t recognise the man). Their act didn’t get either wrestler to laugh. Chikara entered the ring and hit the comedians with a baseball bat, forgetting how the game is supposed to work (you hit the person who laughs). This made Kuroshio laugh so he got hit. Kiso laughed at that so he got hit too. Matsumoto finally won a point!

Chairs were then brought into the ring for the next game “Gake no Fuchi Live Morning TV”. Matsumoto, Kuroshio, Chikara and Kiso all sat down together and had a TV style debate about marriage. The game went to a no contest when Chikara lost his temper and attacked the other wrestlers.

Both Matsumoto and Kuroshio could barely recover when the “Gake no Fuchi MC Battle” began. It was a rap battle. Kuroshio won. By this point 30 minutes had passed in the match. Chikara might have attacked them with chops at this point. I don’t know, I’m losing my mind.

Anyway the next game was the “Gake no Fuchi Squat Confrontation”. The wrestlers and Kiso began to squat. Kiso gave up almost immediately. Matsumoto eventually lost because her knee did not bend properly for the squat to count so now Kuroshio had 7 points.

Believe it or not that turned out to be the last minigame of the match because they went back to wrestling from here on out. Kuroshio missed the Moonsault Press. Matsumoto gave him a Small Package for a nearfall. Kuroshio then revered the Small Package and pinned Matsumoto for the three count.

Kuroshio told Matsumoto he felt connected to her after doing this match. He once did his own self-produced show in Shinjuku FACE so he knows what it is like to do a similar project. Matsumoto thanked him for giving her the match before he leaves Japan. She hopes they can team up together one day. She thinks they can be a super dangerous tag team together on the same level as Heisei Ishingun or the nWo! Kuroshio promised they will tag as many times as possible when he returns to Japan.

But that wasn’t it for the show! Suddenly Sanshiro Takagi came out. He liked the match they just had and likes the idea of them teaming together even more. So they are going to have a tag team match against Takagi straight away! Takagi’s tag partner is somebody who also is going to have a final match of her own soon. It’s Tequila Saya from Ice Ribbon!

Matsumoto put her Ikemen jacket back on and along with Kuroshio attacked their opponents to start the impromptu match. Takagi & Saya rallied and with the help of Chikara hit a Train Attack on Matsumoto. Kuroshio came to her aid and helped Matsumoto do the Mamma Mia Z. But Takagi caught her and countered with the Spicolli Driver. Saya went for the Grand Maestro de Tequila but Matsumoto countered it with her own clutch for a nearfall. Matsumoto and Saya went back and forth with Cradles until Saya successfully applied the Grand Maestro de Tequila to win.

Takagi thanked Saya for coming over today and told her to enjoy her remaining pro wrestling life before her retirement match on 31st December. He also thanked Kuroshio and said it will be the last time they will wrestle each other for a while. Finally, Takagi congratulated Matsumoto for successfully bringing back Gake no Fuchi. He encouraged her to recreate the brand’s history with her own hands. After all, Matsumoto is one of the best when it comes to self-promotion. Takagi then left because it’s Christmas Eve and he has a family to be with. Saya told Matsumoto that her retirement match will consist of 38 one minute bouts. She asked if Matsumoto could be one of her 38 opponents. Matsumoto wasn’t sure if she could make it but quickly accepted when it looked like Saya was going to leave.

The show ended with Meari Naito singing “All I Wants For Christmas Is You” while everyone danced around her. Then Matsumoto had one last message to tell everyone. Gake no Fuchi is back but she cannot do this on her own. She is looking for trainees or other newcomers to help her make this place bigger and bigger. The next time this show happens will be on 4th January when Matsumoto takes on Chris Brookes!
