270 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani defeated Koju Takeda & Rising HAYATO when Shimatani pinned HAYATO after a Running Elbow Smash from Shimomura (9:37).
2. Great China Alliance Vs New Beijing Pro Wrestling!: Cao Modao & Yasuura No defeated Choun-Shiryu & Rekka when No pinned Rekka with an Inside Cradle (11:57).
3. Yuki Iino Return Match – Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 2: Konosuke Takeshita defeated Yuki Iino with the German Suplex (10:27).
4. Koji Kanemoto & Mizuki Watase defeated Mike Bailey & MAO when Watase pinned MAO with the Tiger Suplex (11:43).
*Mizuki Watase wins MAO’s Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet.
5. Ryota Nakatsu defeated Kouki Iwasaki with the Crescent Moon (14:19).
6. Akito & Shunma Katsumata defeated Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo when Katsumata pinned Okuda with the ¡Hasta la vista! (15:03).
7. Kota Umeda defeated Naomi Yoshimura with the Umeda Driver (17:00).

Kota Umeda cements his place at the top of DNA with a decisive victory over Naomi Yoshimura. He overcame everything Yoshimura threw at him including a chairshot that was done to block Umeda’s Tope Con Hilo. Umeda found a counter for Yoshimura’s Power Bombs at almost every opportunity. On offence, Umeda’s kicks and knee strikes chipped away at Yoshimura until he fell to the Umeda Driver. After the match Umeda called out Yoshimura for trying to take over DNA during his absence. Then when Umeda came back, Yoshimura had the Naomi Kingdom backing him up. It took months of waiting but they were finally able have their match and end their conflict today. Umeda offered to shake Yoshimura’s hand. Yoshimura wanted to resist but he conceded defeat and accepted it before leaving with the rest of the Kingdom. Umeda ended the show by telling the fans that a good wave is coming to DNA and he is looking forward to seeing everyone at the next couple of DNA shows this summer.

The other Naomi Kingdom members also lost their match today to ALL OUT. An ambush at the venue’s stairway where the wrestlers entered through gave Keisuke Okuda & Akira Jo the advantage at first. But Akito & Shunma Katsumata persisted until they found their opening. Katsumata kept Okuda in the ring and stunned him with a Buzzsaw Kick before getting the three count with the ¡Hasta la vista! Lightning Spiral.

Ryota Nakatsu returned to DNA to beat Kouki Iwasaki. That result isn’t the end of their rivalry. Now Iwasaki wants to return the favour and go have a match in BASARA! Nakatsu is open to the idea but isn’t sure if Iwasaki has the guts to go by himself like he did today.

Things are looking good for Mizuki Watase. Today’s win means he now has two Right To Challenge Gauntlets in his possession! He likes the idea of collecting all of them so maybe he will chase after the three remaining ones. Also Koji Kanemoto enjoyed teaming with him so much that he wants to do it again.

Yuki Iino returned to action with a hard hitting match against Konosuke Takeshita. Iino’s big moves were Spears and rugby tackles. He also got into chop battles but his momentum was cut short with a Lariat. Takeshita put him away with the German Suplex. Iino was disappointed with the loss but he felt comfortable handling the pressure of fighting one of DDT’s main eventers.


TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP” Results

June 3, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 03/06/2018
Shinjuku Village Studio C 106
384 Fans – Super No Vacancy

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Take A Chance: Hikari defeated Miu with a Leg Roll Clutch (5:44).
2. 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima defeated Rika Tatsumi and Yuki Aino when Nakajima pinned Aino with the Northern Lights Suplex (7:55).
3. Azusa Christie defeated Yuki Kamifuku with the Christie Agape (5:36).
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Nodoka-oneesan defeated Yuna Manase with the Back Flip (7:58).
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Hyper Misao defeated Saki-sama by Disqualification when Saki-sama unmasked Misao and was caught with a weapon (10:01).
6. Mizuki & Hinano defeated Yuka Sakazaki & Raku when Mizuki pinned Raku with the 2nd Rope Diving Foot Stomp (9:41).
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Miyu Yamashita defeated Maki Ito with the Attitude Adjustment (12:01).
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1: Yuu defeated Reika Saiki with the Last Ride (11:55).

The winners of the two previous Tokyo Princess Cups faced off in the main event. Yuu blocked the Jackhammer and sent Reika Saiki into the corner with the John Yuu dropkick. She then finished her off with the Last Ride to advance. Yuu said it’s been a long time since she last won a main event match so she is really happy today! She can feel her own momentum returning and Tokyo Joshi Pro itself is getting bigger because of all the hard work everyone is doing. Yuu wants to win the tournament so Tokyo Joshi can grow more by using her kind of pro wrestling.

Miyu Yamashita and Nodoka-oneesan also advanced with wins over Maki Ito and Yuna Manase respectively. Yamashita noted that Ito has improved since their last match against each other. Ito was more driven and Yamashita admits she had difficulty escaping from Ito’s Inverted Crab Hold. Ito is upset over the defeat but she assures everyone she will never break because she will not lose forever. Nodoka is happy to win her match and wants to win the next one because she is greedy.

Hyper Misao came up with several traps to use against Saki-sama. She held something wrapped up in cloth and claimed it was Saki-sama’s possessions. Misao asked Saki-sama to forfeit the match if she wanted her stuff back. Saki-sama didn’t fall for it. Misao then went over to the announce table and dressed Sayuri Namba with Misao’s old mask and jacket to trick Saki-sama into thinking Namba was Misao. That also didn’t work. Saki-sama chased Misao up a nearby staircase and Misao taped Saki-sama’s hands to the railings to get her counted out. Saki-sama escaped by slipping her hands out of her gloves and made it back to the ring in time. Misao grabbed a chair but she got into a back and forth moment with the referee over it. That ended when Saki-sama hit the ref with a Big Boot by mistake. Misao then taped Saki-sama’s arms and feet together. Azusa Christie came in with scissors and cut Saki-sama free but Misao took out a spray can and blinded both girls with it. She then woke the ref up, unmasked herself and gave the mask and the spray can to Saki-sama. When the ref regained his bearings he saw that Misao was huddled over unmasked, Saki-sama was holding both the mask and a spray can and Christie was armed with a pair of scissors. He had no choice but to disqualify Saki-sama and award the match to Misao!

The 2nd Round matches made today are Yuu Vs Hyper Misao and Miyu Yamashita Vs Nodoka-oneesan. Yuu said she envied Misao for getting to wrestle Jun Kasai in a Hardcore Match. Misao gets to wrestle in matches that nobody else in Toyko Joshi get to do. so she is experienced in ways that Yuu is not. Yamashita wonders if Nodoka has progressed like Ito has. Yamashita is confident that her own power is enough to beat Nodoka regardless.

Yuki Kamifuku and Azusa Chrisite quizzed each other over who knew Saki-sama better during their match. Christie eventually had enough of Kamifuku’s antics and beat her with the Christie Agape.

Hikari won the Up Up Girls Take A Chance match so she qualifies for the Princess Cup. She is expected to face Marika Kobashi in her 1st Round match on 9th June. Speaking of Kobashi, she was pulled from today’s show because of a left shoulder injury she suffered during training yesterday. She is hoping to recover in time for her Princess Cup match next week.

Because of Kobashi’s injury and Maho Kurone’s absence, the scheduled 6-Woman Tag for Match #6 was turned into a regular tag match.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 03/06/2018
Shinjuku Village Studio C 106

1. Marika Kobashi, Yuka Sakazaki & Raku Vs Mizuki, Hinano & X
2. Azusa Christie Vs Yuki Kamifuku
3. 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Rika Tatsumi Vs Yuki Aino
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Take A Chance: Miu Vs Hikari
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Reika Saiki Vs Yuu
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Hyper Misao Vs Saki-sama
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Miyu Yamashita Vs Maki Ito
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yuna Manase

Unfortunately Maho Kurone will be taking a break from Tokyo Joshi Pro to recover from her recent poor health. She had been suffering from headaches and dizziness that have been bad enough to take her off shows. After getting consulted in relation to these symptoms, Kurone was diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder and told to recover from home for the time being. Her future plans will be determined once she goes through more examinations. Kurone’s absence means she will not be competing in the Tokyo Princess Cup. The cards for the upcoming Tokyo Joshi shows will go through the necessary changes as soon as their decisions are made.

DNA “DNA 45”, 03/06/2018
Shinjuku Village Studio C 106

1. Kouki Iwasaki Vs Ryota Nakatsu
2. Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Koji Kanemoto & Mizuki Watase
3. Great China Alliance Vs New Beijing Pro Wrestling!: Choun-Shiryu & Rekka Vs Cao Modao & Yasuura No
4. Daiki Shimomura & Nobuhiro Shimatani Vs Koju Takeda & Rising HAYATO
5. Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Keisuke Okuda & Akita Jo
6. Yuki Iino Return Match – Yuki Iino Knock On Series Round 2: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Yuki Iino
7. Naomi Yoshimura Vs Kota Umeda

Before Yuki Iino got injured he began a planned seven match trial series of matches in DNA. He only completed one against Shigehiro Irie before it was put on hold. Since his return match is now against Konosuke Takeshita it makes sense for DNA to bring the trial back and continue where they left off.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TOCHIOTAME~”, 09/06/2018
Tochigi Prefectural Integrated Cultural Center Sub Hall

1. Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Kouki Iwasaki
2. 3 Way Match: Danshoku Dieno Vs Antonio Honda Vs Daiki Shimomura
3. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno
4. Utsunomiya Specialty! Romantic Tag Match: Shigehiro Irie & Mizuki Watase Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Makoto Oishi

ALL OUT have declared their intentions to become the next KO-D 6-Man Tag Team Champions. When Takeshita saw the DNA team win the belts, he felt something special. But he is the leader of DDT’s new generation and he needs to be a champion now that he no longer has the KO-D Openweight Title. Since that’s out of his range for now, he is focusing on all of the DDT tag championships. Akito says ALL OUT needs the 6-Man Titles more than the DNA team do. That the belts haven’t been defended since April is Akito’s proof of this. Shunma Katsumata says the time is right for ALL OUT to be champions. Their challenge hasn’t been accepted yet but a tag match between Takeshita & Akito against Kota Umeda & Yuki Ueno will certainly set it up.

DDT “ROAD TO RYOGOKU 2018 ~DRAMATIC DREAM TAKASHIGANI~”, 10/06/2018
Shizuoka Shimizu Marine Bill

1. Keisuke Ishii Vs Yuki Ueno
2. Kota Umeda & Yuki Iino Vs Mike Bailey & MAO
3. ALL OUT Vs DDT Now Variety Group!: Konosuke Takeshita, Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Danshoku Dieno, Makoto Oishi & Antonio Honda

Looks like the name Makoto Oishi gave to the long time comedy generation of DDT wrestlers has stuck. He, Danshoku Dieno, Antonio Honda and Super Sasadango Machine all represent the DDT Now Variety Group.

NIHON KOGAKUIN COLLEGE X DDT “BREAKTHROUGH LIMIT ~PREMIUM ONE NIGHT ONLY~”, 29/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Antonio Honda Vs Makoto Oishi
2. Yuka Sakazaki & Shoko Nakajima Vs Miyu Yamashita & Yuki Aino
3. Konosuke Takeshita & Akito Vs Danshoku Dieno & Kazusada Higuchi

DDT is teaming up with the Nihon Kogakuin College to teach their college students how to put together events as well as offering them the first step towards becoming pro wrestling fans.

DDT “BATTLE OF NAGANO”, 15/07/2018
Nagano Mielparque Hall

1. SWF Offer Match: X Vs X
2. X Vs X
3. X Vs X

DDT will be participating at a concert in Nagano headlined by LOW IQ 01 and ANOTHER BEAT BREAKERS. If the first name sounds familiar, that’s because it is the musician behind Katsuyori Shibata’s theme song (please release that song!). The DDT wrestlers advertised for the show are Toru Owashi, Konosuke Takeshita, Daisuke Sasaki, Danshoku Dieno, Mizuki Watase and Tetsuya Endo. There will also be a match provided by local indie SWF.


Tokyo Princess Cup 1st Round

May 28, 2018

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 03/06/2018
Shinjuku Village Studio C 106

1. Marika Kobashi, Yuka Sakazaki & Raku Vs Mizuki, Maho Kurone & Hinano
2. Azusa Christie Vs Yuki Kamifuku
3. 3 Way Match: Shoko Nakajima Vs Rika Tatsumi Vs Yuki Aino
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Take A Chance: Miu Vs Hikari
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Reika Saiki Vs Yuu
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Hyper Misao Vs Saki-sama
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Miyu Yamashita Vs Maki Ito
8. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Nodoka-oneesan Vs Yuna Manase

Reika Saiki wants to experience deja vu and repeat last year’s road to success. She won the previous Tokyo Princess Cup and became the TOKYO Princess Champion quickly afterwards. If she repeats this then she can regain the title from Miyu Yamashita. She sees her opening round match against Yuu as a Muscle Showdown. Yuu thinks the distance between her and the title is growing. She wants to show her strength against Saiki.

After last year’s performance, Hyper Misao thinks she is a stronger wrestler when put in a tournament setting. She hopes the “Goddess of Summer” will be smiling on her again this year. Saki-sama loves tournaments. In fact she hosts plenty of private tournaments in her manor for her own entertainment. But she never took part in one herself so this is the perfect opportunity to try it out against the common people. She is also interested in the Take A Chance qualifier match because she may find a beautiful flower bud that hasn’t found its colour yet.

Yamashita and Maki Ito argued over the Princess Title. Ito thinks she is stronger but Yamashita being the champion proves her wrong. Ito isn’t looking ahead at the rest of the bracket. Her only goal right now is to beat Yamashita in the 1st Round and claim the belt for herself! Doesn’t matter if the match is non-title.

Nodoka-oneesan and Yuna Manase is a more peaceful pairing. Nodoka has been doing her gymnastics to prepare for the tournament. Manase as the eighth entrant thinks she has the lucky number because 8 is the shape of her chest when she lies down.

The Take A Chance qualifier is between two of the Up Up Girls. Either Miu or Hikari will advance to the tournament proper. Miu thinks she has the power and stamina to defeat her teammate. Hikari wants Miu to know she is tougher than everyone thinks. Hikari wants to make the most of this opportunity so she can wrestle as many of her seniors as possible. Both of them also realise a Tag Title shot is in their future if either of them beats Marika Kobashi in Round 1.

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “THE 5TH TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 09/06/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Azusa Christie Vs Rika Tatsumi
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Shoko Nakajima Vs Maho Kurone
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mizuki
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Marika Kobashi Vs Miu or Hikari

Azusa Christie is entering the tournament so she can stay close to Saki-sama. She thinks Rika Tatsumi’s nickname is “White Kokeshi”. Tatsumi is aware of how successful Christie has been ever since she was turned into a brainwashed nun. But Tatsumi has grown stronger too and she doesn’t need to cling onto somebody else to find success.

Shoko Nakajima has felt a little aimless ever since she lost the TOKYO Princess Tag Team Titles. When she watched Yamashita and Tatsumi fight for the TOKYO Princess Title earlier this month it shook her emotions. She was on the verge of tears until she told herself “I want to be the best.” Maho Kurone has suddenly begun to act more friendly towards others. She became interested in championships because her friend Tatsumi wanted to be a champion. Kurone does not like to eat anything that is not her friend.

Mizuki thinks Yuka Sakazaki is too noisy but she still has fun wrestling her. The real problem is Mizuki has never beaten Sakazaki. She may need to destroy her voice to beat her.

Marika Kobashi’s 1st Round opponent is against one of the Up Up Girls. Whoever it is, Kobashi is looking forward to fighting them. She has two years more experience than them so she is confident of advancing to Round 2.

After a fun trip to the amusement park, Meiko Satomura wanted to wrestle in DDT again so she was invited to enter the Right To Challenge match.

7. Naomi Yoshimura Vs Kota Umeda

The card has been switched around because of Yuki Ueno’s injury. Now Kota Umeda gets to fight Naomi Yoshimura in the main event. With Umeda moved up the card, Yuki Iino was given a new opponent for his return match. It’s Konosuke Takeshita! That’s not all. The rest of ALL OUT are also on the card facing the Naomi Kingdom.

The 5th Tokyo Princess Cup

May 22, 2018

The 5th annual Tokyo Princess Cup is the biggest one yet with 16 girls competing. The tournament will be held over the course of four shows with the first round split evenly between two shows in one week. There will be a bracket set in place for everything up until the semi-finals. The first round matches will be determined by lottery soon. The semi-final matches will be determined by another lottery on the day of the finals. The complete line up is as follows:

Miyu Yamashita (5th Consecutive Appearance)
Shoko Nakajima (5th Consecutive Appearance, 2nd Winner)
Yuka Sakazaki (5th Consecutive Appearance)
Rika Tatsumi (3rd Consecutive Appearance)
Hyper Misao (2nd Appearance In 3 Years)

The field was whittled down to 17 when Tokyo Joshi Pro eliminated girls who have not won any matches yet (Yuki Kamifuku, Yuki Aino, Raku and Hinano). The final spot is nicknamed “Take A Chance” and will be determined by a match between the two Up Up Girls who have won matches: Miu and Hikari. It is essentially a qualifying match for the final spot.

Sendai Joins In The Toshimaen Fun, Dramatic Dreams Vol. 5, Right To Challenge Returns

May 22, 2018

DDT “ROJO WRESTLING IN TOSHIMAEN”, 25/05/2018
Tokyo Toshimaen

1. Sanshiro Takagi, Ippanjin Munenori Sawa & Meiko Satomura Vs X, X & X

Isami Kodaka, Shunma Katsumata, Meiko Satmoura and Cassandra Miyagi have been added to the show. Every match is planned to be a trios match with two men and one woman on every team. The only confirmed team so far is Satomura joining Sanshiro Takagi & Ippanjin Munenori Sawa. Their team name is Hentai Sendai Big Boss. Satomura isn’t thrilled with the name. The reason this show is taking place is because Toshimaen holds a dark secret. By day it is an amusement park but by night it transforms into a fighter training facility. The facility exists to develop a champion for Japan to enter the Fighting World Cup held every four years. Takagi claims that he has the management rights for Japan’s entry this year and put this show together to find his champion.

DDT “DRAMATIC DREAMS! VOL. 5 ~MAY I KNOW THE RAIN~”, 27/05/2018
Osaka Edion Arena #2

1. Yuni’s Net 2: Makoto Oishi, Saki Akai & Yuni Vs Danshoku Dieno, Takatimo Dragon & Hiratimo Dragon
2. Sumo! Sumo! Sumo! U-Genes!: Toru Owashi & Hoshitango Vs Kazusada Higuchi & Kouki Iwasaki
3. Craftsmen Special Tag Match: HUB & Masahiro Takanashi Vs Yasu Urano & MEN’S Teioh
4. Not Serious Mask Man World’s Biggest Battle ~ Special 3 Way Match: Kikutaro Vs Kuishinbo Kamen Vs Super Sasadango Machine
5. 4 Way Tag Match ~ NAMBARAMBU!: Keisuke Ishii & Kota Umeda Vs Akito & Shunma Katsumata Vs Mike Bailey & MAO Vs Mizuki Watase & Daiki Shimomura
6. Special Single Match ~Steel~: Dick Togo Vs Naomi Yoshimura
7. DDT elder brothers Vs DAMNATION!: HARASHIMA, KUDO & Yukio Sakaguchi Vs Soma Takao, Tetsuya Endo & Mad Paulie (w/ Daisuke Sasaki)
8. Special Single Match ~Sustainable~: Shigehiro Irie Vs Magnitude Kishiwada
9. Special Single Match ~Heart~: Konosuke Takeshita Vs Antonio Honda

DDT held a press conference backstage in Korakuen Hall after “AUDIENCE 2018” ended to promote this show. Yukinori Matsui commented on all of the matches because he is organising the show as the link between DDT and the Osaka wrestling scene. He put together the Shigehiro Irie Vs Magnitude Kishiwada match because of their interactions in last year’s “DRAMATIC DREAMS!” show. Bad blood still exists between the two and that was shown when they had a chair duel in front of everyone. Kuishinbo Kamen also interviewed Super Sasadango Machine from the front row. Finally, Konosuke Takeshita and Antonio Honda spoke about their upcoming match against each other. Takeshita feels free as a bird now that he no longer has the pressures of defending the KO-D Openweight Title. However the downside of that is he has nothing to connect with and feels kind of aimless right now. Honda values freedom in pro wrestling and hopes to teach that lesson to Takeshita.

Injuries have caused some changes in the card. Yuki Ueno hasn’t recovered so Naomi Yoshimura takes his place in the match against Dick Togo. Also Shoichi Uchida broke his heel back in April and has not recovered in time to wrestle on this show. The good news is Akito has recovered from his injury and gets his first match back here.

DDT “DDT LIVE! MAJI MANJI #6”, 29/05/2018
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. KO-D Openweight Title Next Challenger Decision & Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Rumble: X Vs X

The crazy rumble is back. Several prizes will be on the line including a guaranteed KO-D Title shot on 24th June. The other prize is the Right To Challenge Anytime, Anywhere Gauntlet. It works exactly like the Money In The Bank briefcase in WWE but there is the added condition that whoever owns the gauntlet has to defend it in every match they appear in until they cash in their title shot. There are usually several gauntlets up for grabs and that leads to a wave of gauntlet switches from wrestler to wrestler throughout the summer. It’s a handy way to make the lesser DDT shows more eventful to follow.
