For the 2nd time Yuu has won the TOKYO Princess Cup! The final rounds took place today with Yuu beating Nodoka-oneesan and Yuka Sakazaki beating Rika Tatsumi to set up the main event. Yuu’s big win happened when she caught Sakazaki in midair and Power Bombed her. She then hit the Last Ride Power Bomb for the three count. Yuu let out a big cry when she won.
Yuu said she first won the Princess Cup two years ago. She wasn’t afraid of anything back then because she was undefeated and she had a lot of fun with wrestling. This time however there is a lot on her mind. She lost the TOKYO Princess Title, the girls around her a getting stronger and there are new juniors underneath her filling up the Tokyo Joshi Pro roster. It has her wondering where her place in Tokyo Joshi is. But the one thing she can do without fail is believe in her strength. She believes in her wrestling and is happy to be a part of Tokyo Joshi. She might be in a better place now than she was two years ago. That leads to something else Yuu wants to do. She called out Miyu Yamashita and challenged her to a TOKYO Princess Title match! Yuu believes she has to be at a certain level to fight for the championship and today she reached it. Yamashita said of course she accepts the challenge. Yamashita knows her strength the best and told Yuu not to limit herself. Yamashita wants both herself and Yuu to be at their mental and physical best until one of them runs out. The match will take place on the 25th August Korakuen Hall show. Yuu promised she will be standing in the ring at the end of the summer as the TOKYO Princess Champion!
In the semi-finals, Nodoka was beaten with the Katahajime but she never gave up. The referee had to stop the match when she lost consciousness. Nodoka thanked everyone for their support and said she changed a lot of minds in just three matches. She wants to take the next step this summer.
Tatsumi threw everything she had at Sakazaki including a surprise attack to start the match. Sakazaki was able to escape the Dragon Sleeper by rolling out of it. She then countered the Dragon Twist Of Fate into the Merry Go Round. That put Tatsumi in position for the Magical Magical Girl Splash to give Sakazaki the victory. It was a blow for Tatsumi because she anticipated reaching the final.
Maki Ito Headbutted her way out of trouble and score the win for her team.
NEO Biishiki-gun won their match in spite of some tension between Azusa Christie and Martha. Christie got in the way whenever Martha & Sakisama did double team moves together. Hikari from the Up Up Girls almost got a surprise win over Sakisama with a Cobra Twist and a Sleeper Hold but Sakisama eventually made her give up to the Versailles Foot Choke. Christie and Martha continued to bother each other after the match so Sakisama ordered both of them to sit down. She told both of them how ugly they were acting today. Sakisama loves both of them equally. Christie protested and said she only wants Sakisama to love her. Sakisama asked Christie if she trusts her and Christie eventually replied with “Only Saki’s love is the truth”. Now calm, Christie admitted she may have judged Martha too soon. She promises to be more strong, friendly and beautiful for Sakisama in the future. Christie and Martha reconciled and look to be back on the same page. For now.
Hyper Misao thinks Yuki Aino needs a heroic awakening to win a match so she gave her a superhero mask similar to her own to wear. When Aino put the mask on, she found out that the mask allows Misao to talk directly to her heart. Yuki Aino turned into Hyper Yuki and she did a lot of Misao’s mannerisms. The power did help Aino when she fought Yuna Manase but every time she made progress, Misao ran in to try and steal the pin. Aino had enough of Misao taking advantage of her and wrestled the rest of the match without the mask. But without the extra power, Aino fell to Manase and lost the match.
