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.

Tokyo Princess Cup 1st Round Matches

May 18, 2019

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP OPENING ROUND”, 25/05/2019
Kitazawa Town Hall

1. Yuna Manase, Pom Harajuku & Mahiro Kiryu Vs Raku, Mina Shirakawa & Mirai Maiumi
2. Miyu Yamashita & Reika Saiki Vs Marika Kobashi & Yuki Aino
3. Sakisama & Misao Vs Mizuki & YUMI
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1D: Rika Tatsumi Vs Himawari Unagi
5. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1C: Nodoka Tenma Vs Miu Watanabe
6. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1B: Natsumi Maki Vs Hikari Noa
7. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1A: Shoko Nakajima Vs Yuki Kamifuku

Shoko Nakajima has a lot she wants to do as the current TOKYO Princess Champion. She already had a successful title defence. Next is winning the Tokyo Princess Cup, a tournament she has had plenty of experience with. She wants to win it as the champion so she can choose her next challenger for Osaka in September. Yuki Kamifuku likes to live happliy and brightly. She promises to do her best so she can have a fun summer.

Pandemic Boo-Boo explodes! The team have been paired together for the first round. Hikari Noa is the only member of the Up Up Girls to have previously competed in the Princess Cup. She said Natsumi Maki is the most difficult person to wrestling in the tournament. Noa admits she probably won’t win but it is still her goal to get the victory no matter who she faces.

Miu Watanabe failed to enter the Princess Cup last year because she lost the qualifier match to Hikari Noa. A lot has changed this year so Watanabe is taking her chance to fight power with power against Nodoka Tenma. Speaking of Tenma, she is aiming to go one step ahead of her performance from last year and reach the final.

Himawari Unagi thanks everyone for voting her into the final spot. The first time she saw pro wrestling was last year’s Princess Cup final where she got to watch really cool and pretty women having amazing fights. She wants to be a part of such matches too. Rika Tatsumi felt she lost more than just a match when she was eliminated in the semi-finals last year. Her injury took place shortly afterwards so she is coming into this tournament feeling dissatisfied about her current situation. The only way she can overcome this is win the Princess Cup!

TOKYO JOSHI PRO “TOKYO PRINCESS CUP”, 01/06/2019
Shin-Kiba 1st RING

1. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1H: Yuna Manase Vs Yuki Aino
2. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1G: Maki Itoh Vs Raku
3. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1F: Yuka Sakazaki Vs Mina Shirakawa
4. Tokyo Princess Cup – Round 1E: Miyu Yamashita Vs Mizuki

Mizuki has gotten so used to tag team wrestling that the possibility of going on a singles run makes her feel a little uneasy. She won’t have a tag partner to rely on when she faces Miyu Yamashita in the first round. Yamashita needs to regain some momentum after losing her two championships. But the Princess Cup has traditionally been her Achilles heel. It’s the one place where she suffers upset defeats more often than anywhere else.

Mina Shirakawa describes her match with Yuka Sakazaki is a situation similar to Hayabusa Vs Jushin Liger from the 1994 Super J Cup! Sakazaki is gaining attention outside of Japan so Shirakawa sees this as a great opportunity for her.

Raku gets to enter the Princess Cup for the first time. She wasn’t considered for last year’s tournament because she had not won a match by that point. Maki Itoh intimidated a Weekly Pro Wrestling promoter into calling her the favourite to win this year’s tournament.

Yuna Manase is aiming to get past the 1st Round which is something she was unable to do in her previous two attempts. She believes she cannot advance her career if does not advance into at least the 2nd round. Yuki Aino has impressed Manase with her hard work lately and Aino likes to think of her as a kind sister. Aino wants to leave a strong impression on her as she enters the tournament for the first time.

3. Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles: Yuka Sakazaki & Mizuki (c) Vs Sakisama & Misao

None of the NEO Biishiki-gun members are entering the tournament this year. They are more interested in winning the Tokyo Princess Tag Team Titles. Also Sakisama wants Mizuki to join her collection of wrestlers. Her leadership did wonders for Misao. Imagine what it could do for Mizuki?

246 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Yuki Aino & Pom Harajuku defeated YUMI & Makoto Kiryu when Aino pinned Kiryu with the Side Suplex (7:29).
2. Mizuki defeated Mirai Maiumi with a Face Lock (7:13).
3. Marika Kobashi & Miu Watanabe defeated Hikari Noa & Raku when Kobashi submitted Raku with a Front Neck Lock (9:56).

6. Osaka Special 6-Woman Tag Match: Shoko Nakajima, Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh Vs Yuka Sakazaki, Rika Tatsumi & Natsumi Maki ended in a Time Limit Draw (20:00).

On the last show before the Tokyo Princess Cup, six of the women entering the annual tournament faced off in a trios match. Yuka Sakazaki dove out of the ring onto everyone, Natsumi Maki bit onto Shoko Nakajima’s tail and Rika Tatsumi countered Miyu Yamashita’s Attitude Adjustment into the Dragon Sleeper. Nakajima broke the hold and Yamashita did a High Kick to Tatsumi when the time expired. Each of the girls got on the microphone to say they will win the Princess Cup. Maki Itoh wanted to ask everyone who they thought the cutest in the world was but Tatsumi kicked her away. Everyone was ready to start fighting again but Nakajima was able to calm things down. She said she will fight with everyone but only the strongest will get to fight her for the TOKYO Princess Title. She promoted Tokyo Joshi Pro’s next event in Osaka at Edion Arena #2 on 1st September.

The match between Nodoka Tenma and Misao went out of control when Misao brought in her staff after a ref bump. She choke Tenma from behind but Tenma lifted her into the Back Flip. She couldn’t pin Misao because the ref was still down so they continued fighting outside the ring. When they got back inside, Tenma choked Misao with the staff. The ref got back up and couldn’t break them up so he ended the match without a winner. Yuki Aino and Yuna Manase held Tenma back while Misao taunted her after the match.

1. Nodoka Tenma & Yuki Aino defeated Mahiro Kiryu & Mirai Maiumi when Tenma pinned Maiumi with the Killswitch (9:11).
2. 3 Way Match: Rika Tatsumi defeated Raku and Himawari Unagi when Tatsumi pinned Raku with the Dragon Twist Of Fate (8:07).
3. Natsumi Maki & Hikari Noa defeated Maki Itoh & Pom Harajuku when Noa pinned Harajuku with the Uranage (7:33).

6. SHINE Title: Allysin Kay defeated Miyu Yamashita (c) with the Big D (14:14).
*Miyu Yamashita fails in V1. Allysin Kay becomes the 10th SHINE Champion!
7. TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title: Shoko Nakajima (c) defeated Thunder Rosa with the Diving Senton (13:25).
*V1 for Shoko Nakajima.

It was a close call but Shoko Nakajima scored her first TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title defence. Ten minutes into the match Thunder Rosa hit the Reinella Splash that has been her match finisher for this tour but Nakajima got a foot on the rope to break the pin. She countered another Reinella Splash into a DDT then hit the Diving Senton for the victory. Nakajima called Rosa a big kaiju and asked her to please come back to Japan. Nakajima also said she likes Sapporo because it is where the movie Gamera 2 is set.

Miyu Yamashita is now completely trophy-less after she lost the SHINE Title back to the previous champion Allysin Kay. The match went back and forth until the Big D Spinning Lariat put Yamashita down for the count. Kay said this time she knew what to expect from Yamashita although she is still feeling a headache from her kicks. It’s a short tour for her but she’d like to come back for a longer stay. And if that can’t happen, she’s fine with Yamashita going to America again for a third match.

Maki Itoh has a new entrance song called “Brooklyn The Hole”.

The 3 Way Match was more like a Handicap Match with Raku and Himawari Unagi taking sides against Rika Tatsumi. This situation seems to happen to Tatsumi a lot.
